In what will be the last trailers for Pokémon Sun & Moon before they’re released, new Z-moves and other gameplay elements have been shown.

  • Decidueye’s signature Z-Move is called Sinister Arrow Raid
  • Inceneroar’s signature Z-Move is called Malicious Moonsault
  • Primarina’s signature Z-Move is called Oceanic Operetta
  • UB-03 Lighting officially revealed, no other details released
  • UB-05 Gluttony revealed, no other details released
  • Alolan Diglett is officially revealed, and Alolan Dugtrio is seen for the first time outside the special demo – both are Ground/Steel-type
  • Alolan Diglett and Dugtrio’s new ability is Tangled Hair, which lowers the opponents speed if they make contact with the Pokémon
  • The trailer asks US trainers to come back to the official site for where and when you can get Magearna’s QR code – however it’s been confirmed that in Europe it will be distributed via the Pokémon TV app from December 6th, 2016 onward
  • Outside the trailer Necrozma was official revealed stateside as well
  • Spoopy-kun
  • John McNamara

    Just when you thought they’ve spoiled everything they throw us a curve ball like this.

    Well played Game Freak

  • Not Clark Kent on Discord

    Yaaaaaaay lol I like how Primarina just sings and InCineroar look at the big water ball

  • Ultron

    Hm..I haven’t seen any of this stuff…. >.>

    Also, this may be the last trailer for S/M! We’ve made it so far

  • Surprise trailer that’s not announced and not supposed to exist! But it does! One last hype push before the release, I guess.

  • Chaos

    What the starters get unique Z-move? Cool. I wonder what other surprises we can expect in these games

  • EarthenWarrior

    IUB-05 Glutton
    This beast has an astounding appetite, and it will completely devour anything in front of its eyes. It’s said that it devours not only objects, but the ground, rivers, and even the seas!

    Despite the abnormal amounts that this beast consumes, it’s said that it doesn’t produce any waste products. It’s possible that it’s completely converting everything it eats into energy to sustain itself, but the true details remain unknown.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Diglett in the Alola region live near volcanic areas, so they have few places to hide themselves away. Their tunneling activity plows the land, creating cultivated soil that’s great for agriculture. Because of this, many people in the Alola region are grateful for the presence of Diglett.

    The hairlike growths sprouting from Diglett’s head are metallic whiskers. It’s said they developed these stiff yet flexible whiskers in order to survive in the hostile volcanic environment. The whiskers provide a sensory function, enabling Alolan Diglett to scan the surrounding area without exposing their faces aboveground.

    Their current emotional state is revealed by their whiskers. When their whiskers stand straight up, they’re angry. Whiskers that wave are a sign that the Pokémon is on alert. When they swing their whiskers around, they’re in a good mood, and when their whiskers droop, they’re feeling lonely or downhearted.

    Alolan Diglett can have the Tangling Hair Ability, which is a new Ability that no other Pokémon has previously had. With the Tangling Hair Ability, opponents that hit Alolan Diglett with a move that makes direct contact will have their Speed lowered by 1

    • Monkeyfuzz

      This one I like and makes sense, the design is still somewhat lazy but this makes up for it. Dugtrios’ seems ridiculous but maybe that’s just ’cause of how it looks.

  • EarthenWarrior

    In the Alola region, Dugtrio is revered as an incarnation of the god of the land, and it’s treated with great importance. This is why the people of Alola fall to their knees and bow deeply whenever they come across an Alolan Dugtrio that has poked its faces out of its burrow.

    Alolan Dugtrio’s whiskers shine with a brilliance akin to golden hair. The whiskers are flexible, just like Diglett’s, but hard and strong. They continue to grow throughout an Alolan Dugtrio’s life, although at a very slow rate. Removing Alolan Dugtrio whiskers from the Alola region is prohibited. It’s said that those who take them receive divine punishment. Every year, many tourists come back, apparently to return whiskers they had taken.

    There is a superstitious belief that many Alolan Dugtrio come out of their holes on a day when a volcano will erupt. Older residents of Alola will flee immediately at the sight. It’s thought that Alolan Dugtrio, which live beneath the ground’s surface, detect movements in the ground that indicate an impending eruption and are so alarmed that they come aboveground.

    • DTheConqueror

      Praise Lord Dugtrio and his/her beautiful hair!

  • THESE Z MOVES ARE SO AWESOME

  • Leo

    YES PRIMARINA DROWN HA!

  • Spoopy-kun

    “UB-05 Glutton

    This is me in UB form :’)

  • Limbo

    Does anyone know when you’ll get the national dex in sun and moon and are non Aloan Pokemon found in the wild ?

    • Spoopy-kun

      isn’t it always postgame?

      • Limbo

        I think so but I haven’t heard anyone mention national dex Pokemon yet.

  • Leo

    I swear these z-move dances are all so extra rip

  • SomeGuy

    WHOAH we get Magearna in game not from a code or wifi.

    • I love Magearna but I probably won’t be able to use it :/

      • SomeGuy

        I mean it’ll just go in my living dex haha But just thought the way we access the Pokémon was interesting.

  • MewMew

    These moves are so amazing omg! these starters get better and better imo. I couldn’t help but think spirit bomb when seeing Primarina’s XD

  • I love how Primarina just gives her opponent a slow slow death before shrieking and just wrecking them

    • Cosimo

      What happens to its hair? The hair ties are gone…

      • That happens when it uses its signature move too

  • Cosimo

    I love UB-05 Gluttony

  • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

    im guessing this is basically the launch trailer lol

  • Nightvalzin

    The Pokemon Sun/Moon website confirms the version exclusives (for new Pokemon anyway).

    • Ninetails in which version?

      • Nightvalzin

        Sun:
        – Alolan Vulpix
        – Turtonator
        – Passimian

        Moon:
        – Alolan Sandshrew
        – Drampa
        – Oranguru

        http://www.pokemon-sunmoon.com/en-us/version-exclusives/

        • Oh boy Lycanroc is both forms in both versions in the wild

          • Nightvalzin

            Yeah, that’s something that even with the leaks I didn’t know.

          • Kinda makes rockruff being Restricted to evolving into one or the other pretty silly

          • Nightvalzin

            Well, they have done similar things in the past, such as having one Pokemon being easier to find in the wild in one version than the other.

          • That is true

  • So, unless theres more Mythicals we haven’t seen, the only Mythical left to be given out is Marshadow.
    We may have less time till Gen 8 than we thought.

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      At the very least it give GF/the people that fight off continuing onto new generations less to stall with. Every time a generation comes and stays for a little while if there are any unreleased Pokemon there are always naysayers even tho it seems like a new gen is coming. This time they may not have that excuse lol

      • Seeing as we got volcanion only last month, I feel we’ll know of a new game by at least maytime, with marshadow being released next autumn

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    I think the only thing in the trailers that I wish they hadn’t shown straight up are the battle scenes with the UBs (and maybe the UBs in general lol) We all knew it was bound to happen, but I would have rather them keep up the charade that we wouldn’t necessarily be able to battle them by normal means. Like up until now the only “battle” scene we’ve seen is with the UB 02’s facing off against Tapu Koko. It added a mystery, and I’m kind of sad they out right showed them in a regular battle scene before the games release.

    • At the same time, they have already officially confirmed it

  • Spoopy-kun
  • Spoopy-kun
    • Claus H. Luíz

      This is a spoiler. It was already removed by a mod. Delete this.

      • Spoopy-kun

        It’s not a spoiler and I deleted my own comment to fix a mistake I made lol.

        • Well you don’t have to be rude about it

          • Spoopy-kun

            I know >_>

      • Or just edit it with

    • The only downside is I don’t think they’d include Lust.
      While I prefer the planet idea though, it could be a mix of both.

        • Spoopy-kun

          I also like this theory a lot so maybe it’s both (or none lol).

          • Personally I prefer this one as it fits in with the Box Legends, and by extension Zygarde.
            But after 05, here incorrectly named 07, was named Gluttony, there may be something to the 7 Sins thing.

          • Spoopy-kun

            The seven sins thing make more sense imo because there’s a lot of alchemy references this gen

          • There are, but see, Planets played a big role in Alchemy, or at least, the Classical Planets

          • Spoopy-kun

            so maybe it’s really both

          • It’s a good idea

          • Veiland K

            I’m sorry, I have to use this joke. You’re saying Uranus is flat?

        • Dazzling Requiem

          The thing is though, some of the Ultra Beasts require their planet’s physical attributes whereas others utilise that of the corresponding Roman diety

      • TheReece25

        They would Definitely include Lust. There are sexual innuendos everywhere. -,-

    • mark this as a spoiler!!!!!! oh and btw someone pointed out that pride works better with UB-02 since it kinda flaunts its muscles

      • Spoopy-kun

        It’s not spoilers if they’re officially revealed and this is just a theory. And I agree, Absorption could be pride as well.

    • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

      awesome i love this

    • Review Reviewer

      Gluttony reminds me of Mr Krabs as a Mega-Evolution. UBO1 reminds me of Mega-Squidward, and Wrath reminds me of Larry the Lobster. Not to mention that UB03 looks like Primal Steven.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      What exactly is the point of this?

    • Aly el Din Mohamed

      crapp..all of them looks so crappy

  • Hamish

    I hate different release dates….that is all

  • If Lycanroc is available in both forms in both games in the Wild, then what’s the point in Limiting Rockruff to 1 form to evolve into in each game?
    Why not just make it night and day?

    • Spoopy-kun

      Maybe it was a bug they couldn’t fix and was like “lets just roll with this”? xD

      • Like Nidoqueen not being able to breed

        • Spoopy-kun

          that still makes no sense…probably she lost her womb after evolving?

          • Maybe, wha talso makes no sense is her shiny.
            Nidoking has Nidoqueens normal colour, and both nidorans switch, as do nidorina and nidorino, so why the hell doesn’t Nidoqueen have Nidokings?

    • Dazzling Requiem

      Because you don’t find world Lycanroc until you nearly finish the game

      • So?

        • Dazzling Requiem

          Rockruff is a Melemele Pokémon

          There’s still a point to having it being exclusive for over half the game as most people would have had it by that point.

          And its most likely to familiarise people with version exclusive Evolutions without completely penalising them, as there’s a strong possibility it could be a new norm for some Pokémon.

          Ergo, Rockruff could be testing version exclusive Evolutions and reception will determine if the feature is expanded

        • Claus H. Luíz

          So… that means Sun version gets a Midday Form earlier but Midnight Form later while the Moon version has it in the opposite order.

  • Claus H. Luíz

    For those who like knowing the Japanese names like I do: (EN) • (JP)

    Decidueye – Sinister Arrow Raid • Shadow Arrows Strike
    Incineroar – Malicious Moonsault • Hyper Dark Crusher
    Primarina – Oceanic Operetta • Wadatsumi no Sinfonia*

    *Wadatsumi (also pronounced as watatsumi) is a legendary kami (神, god; deity; spirit), Japanese dragon and tutelary water deity in Japanese mythology. Ōwatatsumi no kami (大綿津見神, “great deity of the sea”) is believed to be another name for the sea deity Ryūjin (龍神, Dragon God), and also for the Watatsumi Sanjin (綿津見三神, “Three Watatsumi gods”), which rule the upper, middle, and lower seas respectively and were created when Izanagi was washing himself after returning from Yomi, “the underworld”. Sinfonia is Italian for symphony.

    • So Primarinas Japanese Z move literally translates to Symphony of the Ocean Gods?

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Hmm. Preeeetty much, yeah.

      • Spoopy-kun

        Kyogre is proud of her ;-;

  • Claus H. Luíz
    • OMG LUNAALA

      • Review Reviewer

        Please tell me Lunala can breed with Cresselia or Lunatone….I think it should happen and a brand-new exclusive breed-only Pokemon should come, being a baby moon.

    • Jon Idoncair

      they look like glorious fanart

  • Andre

    OMFG PRIMARINA Z-MOVE GENKI DAMA IS EPIC

  • Vlad

    I fucking hate Ultra Beast -__- how will the writers explain these things as Pokemon.

    • Spoilers

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Actually, their wording implies that they don’t know whether they’re Pokémon or not, at least to a casual observer

        If anything you saying that’s spoilers makes it spoilers

        • I’d say Story Spoilers, they’re showing them off as something new, when really they’re Pokemon, I haven’t looked at the story leaks, but it makes sense that it would be a twist, stop being a party pooper

          • Dazzling Requiem

            You literally just spoiled it in your response

            And I don’t see how pointing out flaws is being a party pooper, it’s a Pokémon website m8 and everyone makes mistakes

          • It’s not spoiling if the guy already knows they’re Pokemon.
            And the Spoilers thing was more of a reference.

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Yeah but the guy who responded isn’t the only one who sees your comment, literally anyone can scroll down and get spoiled even worse by your comment.

          • Chill

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Mature

    • Dazzling Requiem

      It’s pretty simple

      They literally are just Pokémon from other dimensions, like Giratina, Palkia and Dialga)

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Find out this Friday on Pokémon Z!
      Oh, wait, no… Sun & Moon.

    • SomeGuy

      They’re from Ultra Space.

    • They aren’t Pokémon that’s how

      • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

        #Notmypokemon

    • They’ll probably give it its own arc, just like Pocket Monsters Best Wishes! Season 2: Episode N (wow, that was a mouthful… http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Best_Wishes_series#Pocket_Monsters_Best_Wishes.21_Season_2:_Episode_N_.28BW109-BW122.29)

  • For some reason, because of it’s release only last Month, Volcanion feels more like an early Gen 7 Pokemon than a Late Gen 6 one to me.

  • Dazzling Requiem

    Out if curiousity, who else is going to make a story out of their SuMo run? I know Kurusu is, and I think I saw Earthen say he is but can’t confirm that

    • Haxford

      Hey you! How’s the writing going? I was on vacation and I was avoiding spoilers, so I didn’t get to see it 🙁

      • Dazzling Requiem

        It’s been on a stand still, I’ve been bouncing between homework and cleaning out my room because I’m planning on kinda generally improving my life (more exercise, cleaner space, more effort into school)

        It’s definitely getting completed at some point though, it’s a good venting tool because I genuinely enjoy writing battles

    • I might pretend I’m playing as a hex maniac and write something about that.

  • Tinker knight

    Why does a foto of necrozoma now just stand with no reason on the pokemon website?

    • the japanese one?

      • Tinker knight

        No also the english

        • Right I’ll check it out

        • Could you point me to it’s exact location?

          • Tinker knight

            Under the alola region

          • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

            its there because the text box says “Even more mystery awaits in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon!” saying that this mon is a mystery rn

          • Tinker knight

            But I don’t understand why they put it on the website and don’t put it with the ubs or pokemon

          • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

            because its suppose to be like a hint to whats to come in the games, its on the page because it represents the mystery aspect rn

          • Tinker knight

            Oh ok, even the corocoro gave more info about it then this page XD

          • It’s pretty neat artwork, but it is odd it’s there without them actually revealing it outside of Coro Coro https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ffb495065d4200c18649dd21f2bab6c26844032c6d7ac075e6a4e70c7fc42ad5.png

        • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

          i cant find it

    • Dazzling Requiem
      • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

        you should answer that person or group 😉

        • Dazzling Requiem

          Just did XD

          • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

            ok good. im proud of you

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Thank you Papa

          • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

            you’re very welcome.

      • SpectralSeraph

        It just wants to be noticed

  • Tinker knight

    Just a theory the ub are real live things when ub 01 = jellyfish ub 02 = cockroach ub 03 = christmas lights and also one who looks like origami I don’t know the rest but just something I thought of

    • Spetsnaz

      Living things
      Christmas lights
      Not sure about that lol

      • I remember the day I was attacked by Christmas Lights, nasty creatures

      • Tinker knight

        You can’t say that ub 03 “lighting” doesn’t look like some christmas lights even it’s name is lighting

      • Well you never know! There have been… Stranger Things

        • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

          Pls go home

          • I would love to but I’m at school

          • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

            pls go learn

          • I lern lots

    • SomeGuy

      They’re based off of environmental / ecosystem hazards

      • Dazzling Requiem

        When you’re so beautiful you’re a hazard

        • SpectralSeraph

          Best comment I’ve seen

  • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

    when Primarina does the spirit bomb…. more sold then ever before

  • Dazzling Requiem
    • Tinker knight

      What’s up with rockruff? He was always different.

    • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

      so its a exclusive to evolve, but you can a find midnight form in sun at night ( dont worry no spongebob reference)

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Gud

        But yeah, it’s findable in both versions wild, for people who don’t mind waiting until near the end of the game

        • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

          thats good to know actually

    • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

      is also being jackass exclusive to sun because then i gotta switch versions

      • Tinker knight

        Only if you choose decidueye

        • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

          lucky im not

          • Tinker knight

            You’re save…. for now

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Jackass-Decidueye is a Battle Bond Decidueye only available in Sun

    • Cosimo

      Where did you find this? I can’t seem to find it… And, why does it look like Lycanroc (Midnight) is on the “Sun” side and Lycanron (Midday) is on the “Moon” side?

    • Gamer Dragon07

      Nooooooo,I wanted Alolan Vulpix on my Moon team….now I gotta find a better pokemon or ask my friend to trade me one

  • Tinker knight

    People have played sun and moon but I didn’t hear anyone about ash pikachu were is it in the game?

    • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

      totally next years events lol, since its the animes 20th anniversary 😛

      • Tinker knight

        every year a new ash pikachu

        • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

          it might be similar to the legend events we had this year

  • TCRowlet

    Spoilers about a trainer in the Battle Tree:

    I just saw Grimsley’s model, holy crap that’s my favorite re-designed character. I love the black and white color scheme, and he looks so old damn xD But by far my favorite detail is that he is holding a coin. “There are bad ways to win– and good ways to lose. What’s interesting and troubling is that it’s not always clear which is which. A flipped coin doesn’t always land heads or tails. Sometimes it may never land at all…” – Grimsley

    • Tinker knight

      It will land it’s called gravity

      • TCRowlet

        Unless it’s interfered with.

        • Tinker knight

          Touché

    • TheFleetingDream

      Any pics?? Would like to see colress too

      • TCRowlet

        I saw them in YouTube videos listening to music.

        Grimsley: https://www.youtube. com/watch?v=wppIsDYC18c

        Colress: https://www.youtube. com/watch?v=NvQBpb6eqp8

        Just remove the space between . and com

        • TCRowlet

          I just updated this post with a spoiler tag, fml I forgot when I initially posted.

        • TheFleetingDream

          Wow they both look cool thnx!!

    • Ultron

      I wonder if it’s possible for them to do wifi event trainers for the Battle tree? They did that for the PWT…I think it’s possible.

  • Tinker knight

    I can’t wait to use my team in sun and moon!!!

      Ub-01 is bubble buddy more

      • Review Reviewer

        But it looks like a squid and I think Squidward should become happy.

        • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

          I compared it to bubble buddy and people stole it

          • Review Reviewer

            I didn’t steal it or at least mean to, it’s just they reminded me of Spongebob, and the 7 sins reminded me of the Spongebob 7 sins theory. Therefore i MADE IT with connections!

          • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

            no no not you. im talking in general

          • Review Reviewer

            Oh ok.

          • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

            i like ur theory

  • Dazzling Requiem

    So apparently the correct term to refer to things from Sinnoh is ‘Sinnohan’

    Eww

    • Sinnonian sounds so much better .-.

    • Kantoan, Johtoan, Hoennian, Sinnohan/Sinnohian, Unovan, Kalosian, Alolan

      • Alolan is the only one that sounds right

        • Dazzling Requiem

          Imo Kalosian makes sense and rolls off the tongue, especially as in at least English ‘Parisian’ is the term for someone form Paris (and you can’t really get anything resembling ‘French’ from ‘Kalos’)

    • Ultron

      I actually like that a lot.

    • Well, no thank you inventor of that term whomever it may have been. I’ll just go with Sinnoh Native. -_-

    • SomeGuy

      Sounds fine. Unless you’re attempting to pronounce the “h” which I would presume you shouldn’t.

  • Like how the Alolan Starters have Z Moves, the Kalos Starters should have had Mega Evolutions

    • Spoopy-kun

      Agreed. I thought Battle Bond was gonna be that but it’s exclusive to Greninja for now which is a really big let down :/

      • I want a battle bond delphox so bad to fix its design up a bit

        • Spoopy-kun

          Same :/ I don’t like the big ear fluffs. Probably give it a wizard/witch hat or something.

        • Spoopy-kun

          I’d be happy with something like this. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6331d468a6addc96fbcaa93166c6d35197aeb7f9cdb4f092abc996f61416d29c.png Also, gen 2 and 5 continues to get no love :/

          • Ultron

            A mega for Delphox could do wonders for it.

          • You can find the johto starters via the qr code feature, and a few people from Unova appear in the game. So technically this isn’t true.

        • EarthenWarrior

          i see its body staying relatively the same shape
          it gains dark violet streaks from its chest that run along its shoulders
          it gains longer ear fur and head hair that spirals like a cone spring
          also some neat idea its eyelashes are on fire “blink” embers

      • EarthenWarrior

        wait what?

        • Spoopy-kun

          What what?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Others have Battle Bond?

          • Spoopy-kun

            No…hence why I said “exclusive to Greninja for now”

          • EarthenWarrior

            oooooooooooh

      • A Battle Bond Chesnaught would be cool

  • Ultron

    I like Incineroar slightly more than I did. However, I still think the design is disappointing and also Torracat is cuter than it. Also Decidueye is superior.

    • temporario23

      Same here. I find it tolerable enough to consider using it as a fire-type on one of my in-game teams due to the low number of new Fire-types this gen.

  • EarthenWarrior
    • Dazzling Requiem

      TBF you eliminated two Pokémon via flinch chance

      Them staying in on Excadrill is stupid tho, or at the very least they have a weird stat spread for it

      • EarthenWarrior

        it literally was one turn it stayed in
        there was no way they could’ve avoid severe damage because iron head from my Excadrill is death for those frilly bastards
        Cefable dies in one shot
        Sylveon even faster and
        Azumarill was less then half health

    • Ben

      That comment section was savage.

    • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

      THOSE COMMENTS THO

      • EarthenWarrior

        only because we fought before and won via flinching
        And believe me if you thought i had enemies i got scores of them on Showdown

  • SpectralSeraph

    Oh my god UB-03 is the new porygon-Z with those animations

  • Dazzling Requiem

    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ou-475883429

    It was going so well until I saw Final Gambit Victini :X

    • EarthenWarrior

      this team disgusts me to no end
      you should be losing at every step but always stalling and doing virtually nothing and succeeding

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Stalling takes skill tho

        You have to handle all these Pokémon, remember who does what, make the right decision to stays alive, predict. Correctly and if something actually manages to set up you get steam rolled

        Also I only post interesting battles and all my loses have just been regular losses because I got outplayed

        • EarthenWarrior

          nnrrrrrrr win by Stalling pisses me off to no end

          • Dazzling Requiem

            It’s easy to counter though, and even pure offense teams can pressure stall

            For example this one guy bet me because his only defense Pokémon was Gliscor but he knocked off my Toxic Orb and I had been forced to use Heal Bell afterwards

          • EarthenWarrior

            by easy you mean unless a team has the exact counter for everything

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Lolno

            None of his team was conventional counters

    • Chaos

      That team irks me. And your opponents irk me more.

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Okay

  • Monkeyfuzz

    “Rockruff is a special Pokémon that can evolve into different forms depending on which game you’re playing. However, you may be able to find both of its evolved forms in the wild. Search for them—both day and night!”

  • EarthenWarrior

    Grrrrrrrrrr so many buttholes are posting Spoiler battles
    4 more days…..just for more days

    • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

      YOU POSTED ONE TOO

      • EarthenWarrior

        only to show how awful the animation for Earthquake is

  • bay arroz

    how far before the elite four are the mascot legendaries usable? Like is it around the equivalent of before the last gym like they often are? I like to use them on the 8th gym and elite four for my firsts of many playthroughs

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I’m the opposite, I vastly prefer to use my regular team that I’ve travelled so far with for all gym and elite 4 battles. Of course we don’t have gyms this time but the same principle applies.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    They should buff the other fangs power to Psychic Fangs level.

    • CoolGlaceon

      Eh, I’d say let the Psychic types have this one. It compensates for the lack of physical Psychic type moves.

      • EarthenWarrior

        It’s kinda hard to have psychic physical moves that isn’t a glorified “hit them with solidified psychic energy”
        Same with giving Fighting Special attacks

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Imo the effect does that.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Move spoilers Dunsparce gets Air Slash & Dragon Rush

    • Dazzling Requiem

      I’d prefer an evo, but baby steps. Also Serene Grace T-Wave and Dragon Rush isn’t going to be fun if it hits

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I’m hoping this is them preparing for it. And yes that combo even with T-Wave Nerf.

        • TheFleetingDream

          What’s the twave nerf again?

          • Dazzling Requiem

            It has a 10% of missing

            EDIT: And paralysis only takes away a third of your speed IIRC

          • TheFleetingDream

            Ah ok

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Lower accuracy.

  • So Ultra Beasts are allowed in VGC? Weird

    • Dazzling Requiem

      Ehh not really, if you take a look

      Statistical Spoilers, not Story

  • Cosimo

    Hey guys, what’s the Pokemon Team Generator website again? I gotta revamp my teams now that Vulpix is in Sun

  • CoolGlaceon

    The only UBs I like are Pheromosa and Guzzlord.. the others don’t even look like living beings

    • EarthenWarrior

      They’re not supposed to be

  • Dazzling Requiem

    Guys help I’m trying to demonstrate my SuMo Fanfic character doesn’t care for fashion

    Do I have him commit that faux pas or nah

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Double Denim? Sandals and Socks? These are the only ones I know of.

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Second one

        Only a monster commits the first (though there’s a very small chance of pulling it off)

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I guess go for it, or just do a general mismatch of clothing?

  • Armaggedon16

    At Poni Island

    Incineroar Lvl 54
    Crabrawler Lvl 45
    Lycanroc Lvl 49
    Lurantis Lvl 50
    Golisopod Lvl 50
    Toucanon Lvl 45

    • Monkeyfuzz

      How is Golisopod working for you? Good?

      • SomeGuy

        With Switch Mode, I’d imagine pure bliss

        • Armaggedon16

          I have it set

      • Armaggedon16

        Golisopod is an absolute monster.
        It does huge damage to literally everything, it can also tank hits pretty well.
        Wimpod is completely usless though, so if you’re planning to use it,you will have to use EXP share to level it up

        • Spetsnaz

          how do you like first impression?

          • Armaggedon16

            It’s a great move and has saved me from a game over many many times.
            Not many pokemon can survive
            First Impression+sucker punch in the main story

    • Ultron

      What are your thoughts on the trials? Yay or nay?

      • Armaggedon16

        Trials Aren’t the revolutionary replacement to gyms I wanted, but they are much better than I originally thought.
        They aren’t really that big of a departure from gyms, all of them involve battling along with some other task.
        The best thing about them are the totem battles. They are actually hard.

  • belmad

    Lunala Full Moon phase tonight, don’t miss.

    • Leo

      I’d cloudy over here :/

  • Armaggedon16

    Story spoilers

    Saying there are seven trials is misleading, on the last island, there is no trial. The battle with the kahuna takes place as soon as you reach the island without doing any trials. The 7th trial captain(Fairy) just randomly walks by us and gives us the Z crystal. What was the point of having a 7th captain anyway?

    • Dazzling Requiem

      Isn’t there a Totem Kommo-o?

      • Armaggedon16

        there is. But that’s not part of a trial, it’s before you awaken the legend

        • Dazzling Requiem

          I’m pretty sure Hapu implies that traversing the Canyon is the trial though, she says it was ‘the first ever trial

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Anyone know how early a Flame Body/ Magma Armour ‘mon is available?

    • Armaggedon16

      Magby and Fletchling can be caught in the second island

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Great :), I was worried they wouldn’t appear there until post-game.

  • Spetsnaz

    gonna see if i can do a speedrun nuzlocke on AS, somebody pick a starter

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Treecko, don’t evolve it ’til Lv 21 though.

      • Spetsnaz

        will do 🙂

  • Dazzling Requiem

    So I was going to post a battle regardless of outcome because how interesting it was but then my opponent used Shock Wave Hydreigon

    Whyyyy

    • Chaos

      To beat Gyarados obviously…

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Goes with his Superpower Dragonite that like 4HKO’d my Chansey then

  • Jacob Marion
    • Monkeyfuzz

      You’re the first person I’ve seen using Shiinotic.

      • Jacob Marion

        I honestly prefer it to Tsareena or Lurantis so it was really no contest. I was considering using Lurantis instead of Alolan Golem on my Sun team, but they have pretty much the same number of weaknesses and resistances so I went with the one I liked more.

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    Ok two things. First is how early/is there a breeding daycare? Second is what’s the word on shiny hunting? Is there. New method in the game?

    • Dazzling Requiem

      1) Day care is very soon on the second island, Akala.
      2) Pokémon can summon allies, and each ally has a chance of a Hidden Ability, good IVs, or a higher chance of being shiny depending on how long it’s been chained. This process can be made easier with a consumable, cheap item called an Adrenaline Orb.

      Also, Shiny Charm will be available pre-bank: you get if for completing the Alola Dex, there is no in-game National Dex (bank does have a national Dex, however).

      • Ultron

        No in game national dex..? That’s stupid.

        • Dazzling Requiem

          Even I can’t defend it. There’s only 081 Non-Alola Dex Pokémon available, but Bank is literally coming out in two months

          • Ultron

            Yeah, but when I transfer them all to S/M won’t they show up as ??? number in summary if there’s no national dex?

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Here’s the three possibilities

            1) Number is ???
            2) They lack a number
            3) They will have their numbers but don’t have Pokedex entries (are you okay GameFreak?)

            It’s not completely gone, Bank has a Pokedex (about time) and keeps track of the national Dex, but still.

          • Ultron

            Yeah, but it still kinda sucks. Some people just won’t be able to get a lot of pokemon if they don’t have the bank.

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Yeah, hopefully remakes will cover everything not in SuMo

          • Ultron

            They probably will. D/P remakes about to be sick as hell. I have doubts we’ll get Alola update/sequels tho

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Same here, wouldn’t be surprised if we’ll get some elaboration due some minor details in SuMo that tie to Sinnoh but beyond that I’m confident it’s Sinnoh remakes next year

        • FairiesInferno

          I’m actually outraged rn ggggrrrrrrrr!!!!!

      • belmad

        What? You get shiny charm for completing Alola Dex? I assume it’s not that hard thing to do.

        • Dazzling Requiem

          It still requires trading and stuff TBF

          Especially as I don’t believe you register the opposite mascot at any point

  • Cosimo

    Okay… I need major help. I’m so torn! Here are my teams so far…

    Sun:
    Decidueye
    Crabominable
    Lycanroc
    Oricorio (Baile Style)
    Ninetales (Alola Form)

    Moon:
    Incineroar
    Toucannon
    Lycanroc
    Oranguru

    I don’t know where to put Kommo-o and Bewear, who I really want on my teams… Do I put both on Moon and Toxapex on Sun? Or I was thinking Kommo-o can go to Sun and Dhelmise and Bewear can go to Moon… what are your thoughts? If I put Bewear on Moon that would be 3 Normal types… But if I put Bewear on Sun my team is more vulnerable to more types…

    • Ultron

      I’d put kommo-o and dhelmise on your moon team and toxapex on your sun team. I would choose either bewear or crabominable for sun, I wouldn’t have both.

    • The Last Kurusu

      My opinion comparing these and ones you want

      Sun:
      Decidueye
      Toucannon or Orocorio Baile
      Kommo-o
      Crabominable
      Lycanroc
      Toxapex

      Moon:
      Incineroar
      Oranguru
      Ninetales (Alolan)
      Lycanroc
      Dhelmise
      Beware

      • Cosimo

        So, Vuplix is Sun exclusive… And I tend to avoid traded Pokemon on my teams… If Vulpix was Moon exclusive this wouldn’t be such a hard decision to make teams…

        • The Last Kurusu

          But I could have sworn that Vulpix was Moon exclusive

          • Cosimo

            No. It’s sun.

          • The Last Kurusu

            Damn it I have nothing to Give my brother so he can have Oranguru

  • Dazzling Requiem

    So what’s everyone’s favourite music track from SuMo that they’ve heard? Keep in mind to spoiler it if it isn’t officially revealed or if it’s a spoiler for a character

    • Evil-Antho

      Team Skull’s battle theme. I just love it so much I can’t stop listening to it xD They have easily became my favourite Evil Team in all of Pokemon

    • SupaMiltank

      I’ve recently heard Colress theme and it gave me liiiiiife 😀

    • Gladions theme. Mystery Dungeon vibes

    • The Z Kuppo

      Champion title defense theme

  • Spetsnaz

    is anybody else having problems getting into 3ds eshop or pokemon bank?

  • Sunny

    Has anyone been to Pokémon Symphonic Evolutions? I am asking because they are offering 15 free tickets at my school.

    • Ultron

      I heard it was amazing. Definitely go if you have the chance. I regret not going when it came to town

      • Sunny

        I think I will. Also my roommate is a real music aficionado but isn’t into Pokémon. He has only ever played Pokémon Platinum. Do you think he would be interested?

        • The Last Kurusu

          He might it’s mostly all the game music though

          • Sunny

            He is really into the dramatic scenes and appreciates the soundtrack in movies.

          • The Last Kurusu

            I suggest it

          • Sunny

            Thanks, he ended up saying no because it was the weekend before the first finals week.

        • Ultron

          It’s a live orchestra so hell yeah

    • The Last Kurusu

      It was amazing I saw it 2 years ago I will never forget it so yes take them while you still can

    • The Z Kuppo

      I saw a video about it a while ago and it looks like its amazing.

      Here is a link:http://www.pokemonsymphony.com/gallery/video-43

      • Sunny

        Thanks I’ve just signed up for my ticket. In less than an hour I was the 4th person to have signed up for it which I consider impressive since it is a school day and people are in classes right now. (I had to rush over from the med campus to the main campus in like 40 minutes to get it).

    • GO GO GO IT IS UNBELIEVABLE AND PERFECT

      • Sunny

        Yea I have already signed up. They are also offering free dinner as well so that is another plus. An issue really is just finding someone else who would like to go with me.

  • EarthenWarrior

    GAH SO BORED
    I just finished Pikmin 3 which makes all 3 (i gotta say Pikmin 1 is my favorite to play but Pikmin 3 is my favorite aesthetically)
    i swear i’m blowing through Pikmin games like wildfire
    I completely burnt out my wow lust
    and we’re 3 1/2 days away from SM which is the only thing i want

    so yeah Earthen bored

    • Dazzling Requiem

      Get into a new series of anything that you can binge in 3 1/2 days?

    • Leo

      Earthen I need some gaming advice. I am considering buying a Nintendo Switch and some action/adventure games but they usually get me nervous (specially when there are things out there trying to kill me). How do you guys even play these games? xd

      • Ultron

        What games?

        • Leo

          Hmmm, things like call of duty and all of that. Even Tomb Raider for me lol

          • Ultron

            Tomb Raider is amazing, screw call of duty.

          • Leo

            I started to watch a TR playthrough yesterday and it’s nice but too much action for me lol

          • Ultron

            There are definitely intense and adrenaline-induced moments.

          • Leo

            Doesn’t help that the girl playing screams x)

          • Ultron

            It really is a good game series though.

          • Leo

            I live for the movie so it made me want to see what the game looks like. I don’t even own a tv now so if I buy the NS I’ll have to invest in a tv too

          • Ultron

            Can’t you just use the handheld as a tv screen though? It’s basically like a handheld that can do console games if you want to look at it like that

          • Leo

            Oh yeah, you’re right!
            Mysterious and smart, hmmm..
            are you working with looker?

          • Ultron

            And then you could always get a tv/monitor later if you end up wanting to play the games on a bigger screen. 😛

          • The Last Kurusu

            I don’t play any shooting games either

      • The Last Kurusu

        Why I don’t play Fire Emblem, Metroid, or Zelda

        • Leo

          Breath of the Wild looks so good but I’m hesitating

          • Ultron

            Pfff it looks like funland compared to Twilight Princess.

          • EarthenWarrior

            such a masterpiece

          • Ultron

            It really is great. Probably my second favorite Zelda game.

          • EarthenWarrior

            unpopular opinion i think my favorite is Skyward Sword
            i don’t understand why it gets a bad rep

          • Ultron

            I like Skyward sword a lot. The world building is really nice and I really enjoyed the lore. I also didn’t mind the motion controls.

          • Evil-Antho

            Omg yes Skyward Sword is easily my favourite Zelda game. I love the world and characters in . Girahim remains one of my favourite Zelda villains, partially cause i love insane aracters like him

        • Ultron

          Zelda aint scary.

        • EarthenWarrior

          i’m disowning you

          • The Last Kurusu

            I mostly only play from Nintendo

            Pokémon, Yoshi, Kirby, a tad bit of Mario

          • EarthenWarrior

            Zelda IS Nintendo

          • Leo

            Zelda is that guy with the green hat right?

          • EarthenWarrior

            yes

          • Leo

            Princess Link is so amazing

          • Dude like, what if Zelda was a girl

          • The Last Kurusu

            But from Nintendo that’s all I play from it

            Outside of Nintendo
            Starfy, Yo-Kai watch, and Digimon

          • You should play Cave Story

          • The Last Kurusu

            I thought about it but it was too much money… Wait isn’t it 3DS digital exclusive

          • It’s free on PC fam

            http://www.cavestory.org/

            Just grab an English patch and play. There are some tutorials if you get confused

          • Leo

            totally me

        • Metroid is fantastic though. I should finish it some time

      • EarthenWarrior

        i’m never heard such a crock of crap

        • Leo

          love you too

          • EarthenWarrior

            bite me

          • Leo

            *bites you*

      • Leo

        I should mention I’ve only ever owned portable consoles + I basically only play PKM and Animal Crossing

      • SomeGuy

        Definitely check out Fire Emblem and Zelda. I’d say that should be a good segue from RPGs like Pokémon to more action-y games. Though fair warning everyone’s first Zelda game is their most difficult one because the franchise utilizes the same logic for puzzles throughout the series so it can be quite the head scratcher when first diving in cause you don’t know what to expect.

    • Cosimo
  • Dazzling Requiem

    I’m bored

    You’re bored

    Everyone’s bored

    Question time!

    What’s one thing that you never thought you’d like but when you tried it you loved it?

    Mines pretty much everything to do with Rocky Horror, going to see the live show was amazing (until the basophobia kicked up when everyone was doing the Time Warp, my city’s most well known theatre mostly consists of rows of balconies)

    • Chaos

      Special Life Orb Dragonite in the Rain.

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Was doing to slag it but I’ve seen worse gimmicks on paper work extremely well

        How does it work?

        • Chaos

          Abuses 100% accurate Thunder and Hurricane. Also uses Surf for the rain boost, and I gave it Roost in the final slot to heal off Life Orb damage and reset multiscale if needed.

          It’s not the best but I didn’t want a generic rain team

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Huh

            That’s actually a really good strat, the surprise factor also factors in.

          • Chaos

            252 SpA Life Orb Dragonite Hurricane vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Ferrothorn: 173-204 (49.1 – 57.9%) — 55.9% chance to 2HKO after Leftovers recovery

            Even better when this monster which usually walls Dragonite and Rain teams, gets 2HKOd on the switch.

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Oh my God I actually love surprising Ferrothorn

            Hidden Power Fire Amoonguss just laughs at it, it’s not doing too much to it but it does have recovery and doesn’t care about T Wave or Leech Seed

            But back on topic, that’s actually really clever! Hope I can make a set this good some day, I’m a beginner so I tend to stick to recommended spreads

          • Chaos

            I’ve always strayed away from recommended spreads. Everyone uses them and they are predictable.

            I used Max HP, Max Speed Rotom-W (everyone uses Max HP, Max Def) at the beginning XY, was brilliant outspeeding and burning stuff I really shouldn’t be able to.
            I also uses Physical Sap Sipper Goodra, that was fun for a while. Earthquake, Rock Slide, Power Whip.

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Yeah, unpredictable but good builds need to happen more tbh

            People underestimate how powerful surprise is, heck I lose to bad sets sometimes because I don’t expect them

            So I can’t imagine how your opponents feel with good unpredictable sets

          • Chaos

            Wanna know my favourite.
            Head Smash Rock Head Aggron. The trick is I use Head Smash when I’m safe from getting KOd to smack something really hard. They almost always send out a Fighting or Ground type to try and KO me. Bam, hit Mega Evolve, tank the hit and 9 times out of 10 KO them back (especillay if its a fighter using CC). Pair it with a wish passer for more fun.

            I actually experiment a lot, cos I get bored of the same thing over and over again.

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Fudge that sounds strong

            Yeah, I’m getting bored of my stall team because it’s pretty much been stall or be stalled so far, Chansey is actually Satan

    • The Last Kurusu

      Ummm damn I don’t think I have anything but I’ll check this again

    • SomeGuy

      Pot. lol But on the real; embracing the competitive sides of my TCG and video game hobbies was something growing up I didn’t really want to do. I enjoyed being the best among my friends, but the competitive nature of these games typically means playing what’s best not what I like best flavor-wise. But every time I embrace a new competitive scene I get hooked and find it to be very intellectually rewarding and just fun in general.

  • joker901

    Lunala and Zygarde are too cool. Also the UB have good shiny models

    • Chaos

      Shiny Solgaleo hurts my eyes. The Tapus are cool with the black shells. Some of UB look cool as well. Especially UB-03. I like Marshadows shiny better than it’s original

  • Monkeyfuzz

    When building an in-game team does anyone else have certain things they have to have, like a Pokémon based on a mammal, or equal amounts of special and physical attackers? I do and it can get pretty annoying tbh.

    • The Last Kurusu

      Anything cute goes

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Goes away or goes on your team?

        • The Last Kurusu

          On my team

    • DTheConqueror

      I used to always build special teams with maybe one physical attackers and a support, but now for Sun and Moon I’m going to build a team with an extremely fast special sweeper (Raichu), a fast support (Tapu Koko), A fast physical sweeper (Silvally), a bulky defensive physical Pokémon (Mudsdale), a bulky specially defensive special Pokémon (Ninetales), and an undecided support Pokémon. So pretty even this gen.

    • SupaMiltank

      A pokémon per color XD i didn’t realize until recently but I often make my team visually balanced ahah (Miltank/pink + Emboar/red + Ampharos/yellow + Togekiss/white + Salamence/blue + Trevenant/green for exemple)

    • SomeGuy

      When playing new games I try my best to type balance my teams but a little bit of overlap can be fine if I like the Pokémon enough. When going back to play versions I never bought I just check out what Pokémon I haven’t played with yet and use whatever ones sound fun regardless of type.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I still have to type balance, regardless of what play it is, I really dislike overlap 😐

        • SomeGuy

          I think overlap is really funny when using Pokémon I wouldn’t normally use cause it makes the team more interesting and memorable to me.

  • MagmaGamingFTW
  • DTheConqueror

    I need some serious help. The official Pokémon website and various leaks say that Alolan Vulpix is exclusive to Moon, and Sandslash is exclusive to Moon, but the data mine states that is the other way around. Help me!!!

  • Oh dang reddit gold whaddup

  • Dazzling Requiem

    So I’m in a battle with a guy who used Shuca Heatran

    Thoughts on that? Might let it live and retaliate but there’s much better items

    • Chaos

      It’s usually just a lure. Allows it to live a hit it shouldn’t and retaliate. It’s only useful if you have a move to KO the Pokemon that earthquakes, like HP Ice for Garchomp or Landorus for example.

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Ah, okay

        Unfortunate for the guy though, he didn’t have anything for Gliscor, HP Ice would’ve been handy for him

        • Chaos

          My favourite Heatran set is Toxic, Taunt. Brilliant for stallers like Chansey.

          I’ve actually seen completely offensive Heatran as well as scarfed variants. Probably not used too much now, haven’t played OU in a while

    • Dazzling Requiem

      Acrobatics Toxic Orb Gliscor

      There is no God

  • Leo

    What music do you guys listen to? This is what I’m listening to rn https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yDP9MKVhZc

    • The new Jimquisition, but I’ve been listening to Mewmore alot today

    • SupaMiltank

      omg this ! 😀 and M3LL155X is soooo good, too.
      but right now :

      • Leo

        I really like Kali too!!!
        M3LL155X is cool but my jam right now is Papi pacify

        • SupaMiltank

          oh yeah that’s a good one too !
          Do you know iamamiwhoami ? I kinda get the same vibe from her 🙂

    • Jon Idoncair

      oooo never heard of this singer :3

      • Leo

        She’s really cool. Took me a while to get into her but that’s because I wasn’t used to her style. I love a lot of her songs now

        • Jon Idoncair

          duuuuude i just watch that vid like 2 fucking times and then 1 other song jeebuz im hooked x__x

          • Leo

            Oh, Two Weeks is an amazing song, what took me a while to “get” was songs like Water Me, Video Girl, Papi Pacify.

  • Dazzling Requiem
    • SassyChespins

      I’ve definitely used this team before! #stallteamsforthewin

    • EarthenWarrior

      i dunno maybe it can’t use its claws to slap the item off

      • Dazzling Requiem

        But Pawniard can :<

        • EarthenWarrior

          its already a Dark Type
          i honestly don’t care

          Excadrill doesn’t need Knock Off (it really needs to learn Iron head naturally)

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Depends on the niche

            On a stall breaker team the ability to get Eviolite off of Chansey or Porygon2 and to get Toxic Orbs off Gliscor pre-poisioning (if it doesn’t carry Protect) is hella beneficial

    • SpectralSeraph

      On on the off
      ARE YOU TRYING TO TELL US SOMETHING?! XD

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Yes

        You must decipher for the secret to life

        • SpectralSeraph

          I think I may know

  • Ahhhh I love Primarina

    • EarthenWarrior

      i don’t, it will be nothing but a living hell

      • It is so beautiful though

      • SpectralSeraph

        That’ll be hell? I’d be more worried about Araquanid in your position considering the recent news :3

        • Recent news?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Araquanid’s abillity has a third effect :3 And it’s been confirmed

            Being my second fave mon from this gen, it makes me VERY happy to hear!

          • ….tellme… =..=

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Boosts Water Type move damage

          • So does this boost it competitively?

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Definetley, its Liquidation is insanely strong and the Scald it may carry doesn’t mind a boost even if it isn’t an *amazing* boost

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yep… And not just a boost…
            A huge power level boost
            And it hits hard
            Like Harder than Azumarill levels hard

    Another question since this place seems to have entered those unholy dying hours

    You live in the Pokémon world:

    -Where do you live?
    -What is your occupation
    -Who is your idol?/Who are your idols?
    -What is your speciality type/theme, if any?
    -What Pokémon would you start with?*
    -What realistic Pokémon would you want to catch the most?
    -If you could catch a Legendary, which one would you catch?
    -If you could catch an Ultra Beast, which one would you catch?
    -What Legendary Pokémon and/or Non-Pokémon Dieties would you worship, if any?

    • Dazzling Requiem

      *Can be anything but a UB or Legendary

    • – Ecruteak City
      – Animator (since video games dont seem to be too prominent in the pokemon world) and a mythology researcher on the side
      – Cynthia, Elesa
      – Fairy
      – Buneary
      – Lunaala, Marshadow or Shaymin
      – Beauty
      – Nah fam

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Video games probably still exist, they’re all just Nintendo :p

    • EarthenWarrior

      I live in a piece of self own property “a Pokemon ranch”
      I own a business where my legions of Ground, Rock and Fighting types mine ore and minerals
      Ground
      My Rhyhorn/Rhyperior who is nearly….. 13 yrs old
      My battling team, but my mining usually employs Graveler, Sandslash and a few imported Mudsdale
      I would hunt down the Red Orb to control Groudon
      Absorbtion or Glutton
      Groudon

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Surprised you wouldn’t be aiming to become a Ground GL, E4 or Champion tbh

        Also, hate to be pedantic but where is the ranch? 😮

    • Dazzling Requiem

      The only reason I respond to my own things most of the type rather than just do it immediately is because I like posting these quicker, as well as the fact that I don’t like bulking up OPs

      -Where do you live? Hau’oli City, Melemele Island, Alola

      -What is your occupation? Part-Time Pokémon Trainer, Part-Time Student, Aiming to be a Professor on Pokémon Dietology

      -Who Are Your Idols? Name any Pokémon Professor. Especially Kukui and Sycamore.

      -Speciality Type/Theme?: Not really any, but gravitates towards Fairy-Types and elegant Pokémon.

      What Pokémon would you start with? Bounsweet rescued when observing the dietary habits of Snorlax

      -Pokémon you’d want to catch most? Popplio, very elegant.

      -Legendary Capture? Diancie

      -UB Capture? Beauty/Pheromosa

      -Worship? Obviously the Tapu + Solgaleo and Lunala, but Koko especially.

      -Simple, travelling trainer :3
      -My Idol would be …. honestly? Either Wally (His story breh) or maybe Iris (Cause shes a prodigy and is the youngest technical champion after all)
      -A mix between ghost water and dragons

      -Dewpider/Araquanid (I’m supposing it’s realistic enough,being that it is based off an actual spider)
      -Marshadow
      -Either Nihilego or Celesteela
      -Lunala, Marshadow, Victini, Kyogre :3

      • Dazzling Requiem

        By realistic I mean a Pokémon that one could realistically obtain

        (But bestspider luckily fits there too!)

        • SpectralSeraph

          It really is the best spider :3

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Its ironic because I’m an arachnophobic (only with quite big ones though, or if the little ones are somewhere like in my hair or on my face) but I love all the spider pokemon!

          • SpectralSeraph

            (I see) It’s impossible to hate any of Pokemon’s spiders :3

          • Dazzling Requiem

            I know right? They’re all so cute and remain unique from each other!

            Just want a Bug/Dark Black Widow and a Bug/Steel golden silk Orb weaver!

          • SpectralSeraph

            I think Bug/dark or bug/ghost would be a nice spooder :3

          • Dazzling Requiem

  • Do we think Bulbapedia will ever class Zygarde as related to Xerneas and Yveltal?
    The reason they haven’t is somewhere along the lines of “Theres no proof”, but I think there is proof, but maybe this will help, an Entry for Zygarde 100% in Gen 7 ” This is Zygarde’s 100% form. It has enough power to overwhelm even Xerneas or Yveltal.”
    It just really bugs me they’re classing it as seperate and calling Xerneas and Yveltal a duo when it’s obvious they’re a trio.

    If you live in a Pokémon World, part zwei

    1) You’re given a Z-Ring. Do you:

    A) Politely decline
    B) Hunt for (insert Z-Crystal here)
    C) Take it, but don’t actively hunt for a Z-Crystal
    D) Z-CRYSTAL HUNT KIDDOS

    2) You’re given a Key Stone Accesory. Do you:

    A) Politely decline
    B) Hunt for (Insert Non-Legendary Pokémon Here)-ite
    C) Take it and not actively hunt for a Key Stone
    D) Yeah, Mega Evolution sends Pokémon into murderous rages if they don’t have a trainer with a strong bond and I don’t want to die, no thanks

    3) You’re offered to become a Gym Leader/E4/Trial Leader/Kahuna (last two only if you’re born in Alola)! Do you accept!?

    4) Give yourself a Pokémon you’re afraid of, or at least uncomfortable around. Why are you afraid of it?

    5) Which forum member is most likely to be your rival?

    • SpectralSeraph

      1.
      B, for dragon, ghost, water, Decidueyes and Marshadow’s
      B). altarianite until mega flygon is a thing.
      3. Nah, I prefer travel
      4. Ferrothorn……. I despise it cause of all the matches this thing has screwed me over
      5. Honestly? I really don’t know! Who ever would wanna challenge me I suppose

      • SpectralSeraph

        Actually…. I think Sylveon is my new contender for this… The SuMo entry for it has left scars on my mind..

    • 1: C
      2: B Lopunnite or Absolite
      3: Hell yeah!
      4: Dewpider evo. I hate spiders so much
      5: Prince Fae. Two members of fairy royalty!

    • Chaos

      Take the Z-Ring
      Tamper with it to enable me to locate all other Z-rings in existence.

      Throw them all into the fires of Mt. Doom

      • Dazzling Requiem

        :<

    • EarthenWarrior

      I’d go out of my way and hunt/steal a Z-Ring
      i usurped my Keystone from some failure trainer and for the Garchompite i found it in a cave
      Screw that i’m way stronger then those chumps, i’d rather start my own villainous team
      I despise most Fairy and ghost types
      Everyone is my rival

      • SpectralSeraph

        Why do you hate Ghosts?

        • EarthenWarrior

          dude they’re annoying as fairies also those Will-o-wisps are number one on my hate/fear list

          • SpectralSeraph

            I mean …. I get what you mean.. But still….. Ghosts are pretty awesome :3
            And besides, who can argue with a Pumpkin that basically sings as it horribly murders you

          • EarthenWarrior

            i want them all purged

            Dynamic Punch caused some unnecessary confusion and cost me a Match
            Mamoswine barely survived for a Knock Off but hit itself in confusion

    • Dazzling Requiem

      1) I’d get the Z-Ring and collect the Island Trial Crystals but probably not actively invest in the others.

      2) Audinite Boysss

      3) I’d happily become a Fairy Kahuna or Trial Captain tbh

      4) My character would be scared of any Pokémon with mind control capacities due to a childhood incident with a Sandygast, but doesn’t fear Salazzle due to an Immunity to its pheromones.

      5) Tbh probably Prince Fae, two Fairy-Type living researchers? You’re on!

    Why is Sylveon so scary….

    • Dazzling Requiem
      • SpectralSeraph

        Have you seen its new entry?

        • Dazzling Requiem

          Yeah and I love it tbh

          So accurate to the old stories that made me interested in Fairies in the first place!

          • SpectralSeraph

            It just feels disturbing for Sylveon

          • Leo

            Can you share it?

          • SpectralSeraph

            I don’t remember it word from word but it mentions the fact that it’s “Sensory feelers” can be used to wrap around its prey and drain them (I believe)

          • Leo

            I’ll keep my scissors handy

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Sylveon: Its ribbonlike feelers give off an aura that weakens hostility in its prey, causing them to let down their guard. Then it attacks.

            Sylveon: When this Pokémon sights its prey, it swirls its ribbonlike feelers as a distraction. A moment later, it pounces.

            Is Koko really going to threaten you that much?

          • EarthenWarrior

            no i’m talking about the rest all of them are gonna suck so many gonads

          • SpectralSeraph

            Well
            Lele is gonna be annoying
            Bulu gets slaughtered likely by nidoking for you (If it outspeeds)
            And Fini is annoying

          • EarthenWarrior

            Dude my Nidoking is crazy fast
            that means i’ll have to put Sludge Wave on it
            I liked having such varity
            Earth Power
            Flamethrower
            Thunderbolt
            Ice Beam

            everyone of them a powerful move that have saved my butt time and time again

          • SpectralSeraph

            So yeah, that’s your bulu killer
            Have fun with Fini though

          • EarthenWarrior

            well Seismitoad handles my Water problems hands down

          • SpectralSeraph

            HP grass?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Seismitoad is Sassy and sports a Assault Vest
            he’s survived a Giga Drain

          • SpectralSeraph

            Huh…

          • Tobin

            and diancie is cool

          • EarthenWarrior

            yet another stain on the list

  • SpectralSeraph

    Am I the only person using a Togedemaru on my team?

  • SpectralSeraph

    When I look at Lycanroc, all I see is sadness and failure

    • Spoopy-kun

      which version or both of them? and why do you see those things?

      • SpectralSeraph

        Both, but more so midnight
        A frail medium speed Rock type meant to use counter….. who even thought that was a good idea?!

        • Spoopy-kun

          like if anyone is actually gonna run counter on him lol

          • SpectralSeraph

            XD
            It’s also trash with stats… gets no coverage… no earthquake…. looks like Verlisify’s mascot…. basically it’s the ultimate failure

          • Spoopy-kun

            that verlis one was uncalled for 😐 I’m still gonna use it because it’s the only chance I’ll have to use one.

          • SpectralSeraph

            It’s honestly true… It just angers me a bunch

          • Spoopy-kun

            At least its shiny is dope

          • SpectralSeraph

            I guess….

    • towelgirl21

      When I look at Lycanroc, all I see is a badass WOLF and a badass WEREWOLF! Lycanroc and Rockruff are the ones I’m most excited for.

  • AlolanSandschrew

    That Primarina Zmove though :O!!

  • Spoopy-kun

    I wanna like Golisopod but its ability makes me very sad.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I think it’ll do fine its a free switch-out

      • Spoopy-kun

        I just hate the idea of the tank of my team switching himself out like a puss.

        • SpectralSeraph

          He’s not being a puss
          He’s carefully examining his situation and doing the most brave thing of all, realizing he can’t win and admitting defeat by switching out so he can regroup and get a new plan

          • EarthenWarrior

            Tactical Retreats
            Its like running away but more manlier

          • SpectralSeraph

            A masculine GTFO to himself

  • Dazzling Requiem
  • UnburdenedLegume

    There’s a rumor that Breath Of the Wild won’t be a launch title for the Nintendo Switch. If thats true I’m glad I haven’t preordered it yet.

  • Spoopy-kun
    • SpectralSeraph

      Wha… what did you do to the team builder?

      • Spoopy-kun

        what? lol

        • SpectralSeraph

          Every mon is showing up weird
          Araquanid is a Noibat
          Primeape is a Mareep
          Decidueye is a Bunnelby
          Lycanroc is a better pokemon
          Oricorio is more like Aurouracorio
          And your sandslash is a monkey

          • Spoopy-kun

            i saw lool wtf

          • SpectralSeraph

            XD
            Noibat is good tho

      • Spoopy-kun

        wtd that isnt the team i selected xD

      • EarthenWarrior

  • thegreatcarbinkle
  • thegreatcarbinkle

    GF: let make an ability that slows down pokemon on contact!
    also GF: lets give poor defenses whoever carries that ability too!

    • SpectralSeraph

      And remove Arena trap! 😀

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        ARENA TRAP SHOULD HAVE BEING GIVEN TO PALOSSAND

    • EarthenWarrior

      reminds me of this APPALLING FAKEMON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NYAGAGGAGGHJKLKJHGDYUDHJ

      It was a Mega Bisharp and the ability they gave it was……..Gooey…….WHY

  • SpectralSeraph

    Can someone make an Oricorio Lucario fusion called Oricario?

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      speaking of oricoriom why their movepools are so weak and limited. It so sad none of them can get a good stab tm

      • SpectralSeraph

        It depresses me

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          i know. like i didnt expect amazing stats, but them just having their signature move as their only stab is stupid

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah…
            Also.. they ALL have the same stat spread?!

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            i think so

          • SpectralSeraph

            They do… in what world do Baille and Pau’au have the same speed?

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            in a world that they hate birds

          • SpectralSeraph

            (sigh…)

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Revelation Dance is their STAB. Also Air Slash and Hurricane.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Do I like Fairies? Not necessarily, but Carbink, Klefki and Tapu Koko are bae

    • Dazzling Requiem

      Carbaenk

    • EarthenWarrior

      ehhhh they’re half fairy not primarily

    • Chaos

      I’m not particularly fond of fairies either, but Gardevoir is still my second favourite Pokemon of all time…

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Same but I still want a Dark/Fairy imp

        • EarthenWarrior

          screw that
          My mythical
          Insaytr
          Dark/Fairy
          The Mischief PKM
          Prankster
          It senses and absorbs disharmony with its horns and uses it wild power to cause more chaos
          They retreat into dark forests on moonless nights

          • Dazzling Requiem

            I dunno an imp feels more appropriate than a satyr imo

          • UnburdenedLegume

            I still approve because its a Dark type

          • EarthenWarrior

            i just said its my Mythical

          • Dazzling Requiem

            I know but you said screw that to the imo which imo fits better

          • EarthenWarrior

            whatever its my region
            and in it Insatyr causes a lot of trouble (and this pokemon is a pokemon of pure malice and recklessness none of that misunderstood crapola)
            i wanted a legitimate evil Pokemon

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      ty<3

  • Dazzling Requiem
    • MelloMori

      Thats…Not a short list. Care to be more specific?

    • Chaos

      Sorry I’ll stop saying Keith

      • Dazzling Requiem

        Ffs you just said it again!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Voldemort?

    • Strawberry_Pocky_Moose

      I know he’s a Tuber, but beyond that I know nothing (Jon Snow).

      Why does everyone hate him, ooc? I feel like I missed something, lol.

  • SpectralSeraph

    Can we all take a minute to appreciate the fact that the cafe has a drink called “Tapu Cocoa?”

    • Dazzling Requiem

      Still mad there isn’t mention of a ‘Tapu Lelei’

      • SpectralSeraph

        Still XD

    • Review Reviewer

      No thanks, that’s such a waste of my time.

  • Ithsme

    Is it true that power save mode decreases quality somehow?

  • EarthenWarrior

    https://i.redd.it/hjn5bc7paygx.png
    There i found the abolination

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Delete. Who did this to my Bisharp

    • SpectralSeraph

      Do you know the original artist? I need to know the reasoning behind gooey

      • EarthenWarrior

        he quotes its just to give it better speed so it can have more attack and defense
        i should hang him for that

        • SpectralSeraph

          IT NEEDS REASONING!!!! WHAT THE FUCK!?!

          I CAN MAKE A POKEMON BETTER THAN THAT
          HELL I GAVE A MON SPEED BOOST BUT JUSTIFIED IT

        • Dazzling Requiem

          Well your enemies’ blood isn’t going to clean itself

    • Chaos

      Tangled Hair > Gooey

    • SomeGuy

      One could argue that Gooey is a reference to the Primeape boxing episode from the original anime.

  • Leo
  • Dazzling Requiem

    So does anyone else get that thing when you can find someone you have no interest in attractive but don’t havr an attraction? Because like below I can tell all those girls are attractive but I just wish they were a bitty more male 😮

    • EarthenWarrior

      once……

    • Leo

      You wish they were flat-chested and had a d you mean

      • Dazzling Requiem

        TBF not all men have those qualities, but in general yes

        • Leo

          Some have manboobs but I don’t know any without a penis

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Guys who’re transitioning

          • Leo

            Don’t get started with this gender/sex thing…. they can transition but their bodies are still either male or female and surgery doesn’t change it

          • *sigh* yes it does though

          • Leo

            a mutilated genital will never be the real deal and this is not me being transphobic or anything. I understand people might be of a gender that doesn’t correspond the body they’re in but the body will never change. Surgery will make it look like the opposite gender’s yes, but that’s just looks, a quick dna test and bam

          • Ithsme

            Hey can we not do this again please thansk bye

          • It kinda does though?

          • Ithsme

            Can we not have another one of these?

          • Dazzling Requiem

            You know what, it’s not going to be the exact same as a cis body, but it’s still a male or female body due to the presence of sex organs

          • SomeGuy

            *Tumblr intensifies*

    • Chaos

      Attractiveness is subjective anyway. Personally I don’t find them attractive at all.

      • Leo

        Ines Brasil is so hot though

    • towelgirl21

      Yeah, I can see people as aesthetically attractive without wanting to bang ’em.

  • Leo
  • SpectralSeraph
    • thegreatcarbinkle

      ability: gill

      • SpectralSeraph

        Yep

    • I love it though

      • SpectralSeraph

        WHY IS IT THE SAME TYPE

        • Nintendalek42

          BECAUSE MAKING VAPOREON AN OTHER TYPE MAKES ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE WHATSOEVER, ITS COMPLETELY CONTRARY TO HOW EEVEELUTIONS WORK
          That said IMO Eeveelutions are the last thing that should be receiving regional forms in the first place, so this thing has no business existing anyway…

          • SomeGuy

            I personally wanted an Alolan Eevee that evolved into Dragon, Ghost, Steel, Bug, Fighting, Ground, Rock, Poison

          • Nintendalek42

            I really wouldn’t see the point of making an alolan eevee, I’d just progressively add more eeveelutions to the original one. This definitely would make decent sense though, unlike alolan eeveelutions.
            Here’s hoping GF bring back cross-gen evos, and not just eeveelutions at that. Getting close to 1k ain’t no excuse to deny yourself creative possiblities :/ …

    • SomeGuy

      That would have been so boring lol. Hey let’s give a Pokémon an Alolan Form… And NOT change its type!

      • SpectralSeraph

        XD

  • Cosimo
    • You really just change one mon each time you move from each team!

      Team A seems to be the least painful to use with an uncommon (for in-game) weakness.

      Though you can just grab all 8 mons and swap in/out as needed. Even with Exp Share you should not be too overleveled this gen thanks to scaling.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Omg guys

      • Ithsme

        When I enter the password it takes me to a list of games?

    • Dazzling Requiem

      Password is now ‘idkman’

      Hopefully that works

  • Ithsme

    Let out a sigh of relief, because I can confirm that online multi battles are indeed still an option. I mean it was sort of obvious, but I was afraid that battle royales threatened the need for them.

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      what do you mean by online multi battles? doubles ?

      • Ithsme

        Doubles with four people.

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          omg i remember those. they were fun. i remember playing them alot here

          • Ithsme

            Get ready for . . . BATTLE FRIDAYS!!!

  • Shady

    I didn’t know wat First Impression really do but it looks like bug version of Fake Out………….Just for ppl that complaining about Golisopod’s ability ….this ability will be damin OP with First Impression ……….. Golisopod is movable,has nice stats and Awesome design one of the best pkmn in this gen.

    • SomeGuy

      Agreed

    • Ithsme

      What if it was paired with a red card?
      Hmm….

      • SomeGuy

        🙂

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          i see you lol

      • Shady

        Grrrrrrrrrrr

  • EarthenWarrior

    the CAH still isn’t working you sure the password is correct

    • SomeGuy

      No caps no spaces no accent mark. I got in.

      • Ithsme

        What are you on? i.e. PC, phone, etc.

      • EarthenWarrior

    • SomeGuy

      Password is now ‘idkman’

  • SpectralSeraph
  • Shady

    Dam……Primarina actually chanting Mantra when she use her Z-move that’s Epic.

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    i still cant get in

  • Dazzling Requiem

    Right, for CAH just copy paste idkman into the box

    • It keeps taking me to the main page

      • Dazzling Requiem

        That sucks :/

    • I keep getting an “error: password is incorrect”

  • Dazzling Requiem

    Anyone on PC for CAH? If so could you make a room?

    • Ithsme

      I’m on ipad, so if I can’t get in so be it.

      • Dazzling Requiem

        We just need someone to host on PC and it should work I think

        • EarthenWarrior

          meeee

          • Dazzling Requiem

            Do it

          • SomeGuy

            Oh god

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            do it

  • Leo

    I’d tell you guys where to put your over-the-top political correctness but I’d probably get banned so I’ll just go
    http://i.imgur.com/fdpgzQ0.gif

    • Dazzling Requiem

      You don’t have to leave because we all have different opinions smh

      Just be respectful and you won’t have to deal with it

      • Leo

        I don’t mind you guys having different opinions but we can’t even discuss about anything other than “omg what stupid pkm team do you guys wanna have?” without someone getting offended around here (not talking about you)

        • Maybe there is a reason people get offended then? Maybe it isn’t just them being oversensitive?

          • Leo

            Nah, people are pussies today. Can’t discuss religion, politics, money, sexuality or anything because it offends someone. Some things like biology/etc can’t be changed no matter what people want to believe.

          • Ithsme

            Are you still think you’re being respectful? xD
            I’m out of it now.

          • Leo

            The truth hurts but what can I do? A lot of people today are pussies, nothing can be discussed anymore and it’s not only here that I’ve seen this happen

          • People aren’t pussies, they are just more sensitive of other people which if you ask me, isn’t a bad thing. Less conflict if you dont get upset that people are thinking about how others feel. I’m not trying to insult you, but thats how I feel

          • SomeGuy

            Late to respond. But we’ve discussed a lot of serious stuff on this site plenty of times without people getting irreconcilably angry at each other. No one was angry? Just a few people expressed their thoughts, including myself, that we don’t need to be posting purposefully sexual GIFs on here.

          • Leo

            I didn’t get angry because of the gif, I even understand why it would be a problem (hence why I deleted it). What got me pissed was a certain someone telling us to stop talking about that gender/Sex thing when it wasn’t even me who started. The problem wasn’t you or requiem

    • “Political Correctness”

      You mean just being considerate of others? Because that is what being PC is.

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      dont go i need someone who understand my references

    • Ithsme

      You can have your own opinion on things without being disrespectful about it.

      • Leo

        I don’t see how my comments were disrespectful and that is exactly the problem here, people getting offended over nothing. I’m out for today, gonna waste my time elsewhere

        • Ithsme

          It’s more complicated than that lol.

    • SomeGuy

      Eh nobody was getting intense about anything though?

      • Leo

        Not the ones I was talking to but rather an owl that should be burying it’s head in the ground instead. bye now tbh

      Oh, dis

    • So it’s Charles Darwin vs Ash Ketchum?

      • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

        yep

        • “WTF dudes, that’s not evolution!” -Charles Darwin on Pokemon “evolution”.

          This will probably come up at some point.

          • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

            the audio is out. i would show it here but its very inappropriate lol

          • Well not having seen it, I’m already pretty sure it’s gonna come up. 🙂

            I’ll probably watch it later at home.

          • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

            i might post it when it uploads. its pokemon related lol

  • SpectralSeraph

    Welp..

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      omg what?

    • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

      you ok?

    • uh, what?

      • SpectralSeraph

        I think I now know what the majority of the internet will have for Marshadow headcanon (I’m glad you aren’t following the majority)

        • What?

          • EarthenWarrior

          • SpectralSeraph

            I’m predicting a lotta Marshadow shotas are going to be a thing

          • Oh god no

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah…. I’m calling it… it’s gonna happen

          • EarthenWarrior

            i’m so lost right now

          • SpectralSeraph

            This is not something you would want to know

          • EarthenWarrior

            then i’ll resume my semi-blissful cluelessness

          • SpectralSeraph

            I’ll just say it anyways
            It’s a …. NSFW sort of style used but for young males… like REALLY young males

          • Pharap

            And yet people still claim female paedophiles don’t exist 😛

          • SpectralSeraph

            exactly….
            There are many perks to being a Vocaloid fan…
            Learning about shotas was not one of them

          • Pharap

            I rest easy knowing that
            there are worse things out there.

          • Is it bad that what you said made me chuckle…

          • SpectralSeraph

            What I said?

          • Whoops, wrong reply, it was supposed to be at the UB-03 post…

          • SpectralSeraph

            Wait which UB-03 one?

          • You know, the WACKY INFLATABLE ARM FLAILING LIGHT MAN post! 🙂

          • EarthenWarrior

          • Urban Dictionary. Use it then regret it

          • EarthenWarrior

            i’ve seen a lot of things

  • Pharap

    I went to game the other day to preorder the fan edition and they’d already allocated all the ones they had so I can’t get the statue ; n ;

    I’m going to have to hope the Nintendo store still has them and risk getting the game a few days late.

  • Pharap

    I don’t get why they named UB03 Lighting and not Lightning like it is in the Japanese version. Weird.

    • Ithsme

      Oh I just noticed that.
      That’s so dumb…

    • “WTF Gamefreak, you spelled Lightning wrong!”

      But I think it’s an “intentional” typo. I mean look at it, it’s lit up like a christmas tree…

      • Pharap

        It’s a mass of power cables though, lightning makes more sense.

        • Well, particular Christmas lights involve a mass of power cables…

          • Pharap

            The original name is lightning though, lightning worked fine they just changed it for no reason.

          • Well, I wouldn’t have taken it against them to use a pretty generic codename like Lightning (or any of the UB codenames thus far, maybe excluding Absorption).

  • omg this marshadow im drawing is so cute

  • Natsu

    After reading Alolan Diglet and Dugtrio’s entries I feel compelled to tolerate their respective designs.

    PS: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST TRAILER OUT! xD

    • EarthenWarrior

      :O POST. NOW.

      • I’ve seen Alolan Diglett and Dugtrio’s entries already, I don’t need to see…

        Oh, you mean the trailer? Carry on, I’ll pretend it’s about Ultra Beast…

        • EarthenWarrior

          so your saying the new beauty and the beast trailer isn’t out

          • MelloMori

            No it is out. Here you go earthen. Rf if needed

            https://youtu.be/OvW_L8sTu5E

          • EarthenWarrior

            😀

          • MelloMori

            It actually looks pretty good. I’m digging the beast’s makeup. I”ll just put it on my hopefully optimistic list along side Ghost in the shell.

          • EarthenWarrior

            i hope they capture gaston

          • MelloMori

            If they can capture half of the charm of the animated versions performance I’ll say they did good. We’ve reached the era of Disney’s greatest era. We really can’t expect them to capture lightning in a bottle twice, but we can commend them for giving it their all.

          • EarthenWarrior

            totes its been a struggling cinema year for some time

          • When was the first time they captured lightning in a bottle?

          • MelloMori

            Pretty much the era of the little mermaid, Aladdin, The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. Those four movie’s were not only critical and financial successes, but did set the standard of Disney moving forward and are held as their great golden age.

          • EarthenWarrior

            that kinda gush makes my “Bleeding Hearts Film lover” show

          • So if there’s a new age, it would be starting with Frozen Wreck-it-Ralph I guess?

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’m still waiting for all of us to star in Wreck-It Rhyperior

          • I’d draw that but it’s been done already and better. 🙂

          • EarthenWarrior

            Lets see
            I’d obviously be Ralph
            i’d cast Deerlia as Vanellope
            maybe Ithsme as Felix
            errrrr Star or Dazzling as Tamora
            and Maybe Chaos or Shady as King Candy

          • Pharap

            I guess that makes me the arcade owner. Either that or a member of the Bad-Anon support group.

          • MelloMori

            Its getting there for certain. Its kind of hard since Pixar’s still kind of the gold standard, which their only real folly being that their not above making a profitable Bad movie to help justify a riskier good movie.

          • Profitable bad movie meaning Cars 2 I guess?

          • MelloMori

            Yeah, along with the plane’s series as well, and the toy lines. And maybe even Toy story 4 to a degree, though honestly it’s still years off and I have faith in it being a good story, like how Incredible’s 2 has been in the works for years.

          • Pharap

            They’re making a 4th?
            Oh lord. *has Shrek flashbacks*

          • EarthenWarrior

            SUM BODY WONCE TOLL ME DA WURLDS GONNAH ROLL ME

          • Pharap

          • MelloMori

            Yeah, but its not coming until like 2019, so their clearly not rushing it for a cash grab. So who knows.

          • Pharap

            Still, they’ve got the toys away from Andy, the only possible thing I can see them doing is moving the toys to a new home and having them try to get along with new toys or finally killing some of them off.

            Not to mention some of the cast might not live that long (here’s looking at you Estelle Harris).

          • MelloMori

            I wouldn’t put it past them to finally have the toy’s simply begin to break down given how old they are, with woody being the last man standing given he’s largely made of cloth and cotton. It would be a sad, but touching way to end it all saying that all things must come to an end. We all grow up, toys break down, and all we can do is enjoy those moments we do have. The third did kind of hint at those themes, but ti would be interesting to see them go all in on it.

          • Pharap

            Cue 100 crying children leaving the cinema.

          • Well, the main toys are already with a new owner since the end of Toy Story 3, and the short Toy Story That Time Forgot (where they do try to get along with new toys).

          • Pharap

            I never watched #3 for various reasons.

          • Ultron

            No, it’s about Woody finding Bo-Peep. Expect a really sad and dramatic love tale that’s probably depressing as fuck

            *thinks back to Toy Story 2 where Jessie recounts her abandonment. Cries*

          • Pharap

            A love story?
            *removes from ‘to do’ list*

          • Ultron

            I don’t mind this as much since Woody/Bo-Peep were part of my childhood. Also, pixar handles romance well with WALL-E and Eve so it shouldn’t be bad.

          • Pharap

            I forgot Bo-Peep even existed.

          • Ultron

            That’s probably the point. Woody has to go back to her because she was sold off.

          • Pharap

            She’ll be fine, she’ll find some new friends.

          • Pharap

            Wreck-it-Ralph >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Frozen

          • Ultron

            No, either Princess and the Frog or Tangled would be the start.

          • Pharap

            Tangled would be much better without the singing.

          • Ultron

            The “When Will My Life Begin Reprise 2” is everything.

          • Pharap

            I fast-forwarded through all the songs.
            The beauty of modern television!

          • Ultron

            But musicals are lovely.

          • Pharap

            Musicals are awful abominations.

          • Ultron

            My heart.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah that genie is LONG gone by now
            most likely under a highway coked up on speed and children’s tears

          • Pharap

            Mostly looks good, but I’m still dubious because of Emma Watson’s involvement.

            I once read a thing written by some crazy feminist claiming the story of B&TB was an allegory of rape and it teaches children that rape is ok and that abusive relationships are ok.

          • Truly a sad case of Death of the Author. 😉

          • Pharap

            The author of the story or the author of the article/thing?

          • The trope, which means that once a story is out, a prevailing and popular interpretation can override the author’s own intentions.

            No actual death necessary.

          • Pharap

            Oh right, I was looking at the context of the actual 1967 essay rather than the TV Tropes page. The essay was arguing that the author’s identity should be ignored when analysing a story.

            The fact people these days associate sirens with mermaids instead of thinking of them as avian humanoids is a good example of that trope.

          • Ultron

            At best it’s stockholm syndrome.

          • Well, I was just making fun of mistaking what you want to be the Diglett/Dugtrio profiles.

            I’m positive we all want the trailer.

      • Pharap

        “Diglett in the Alola region live near volcanic areas, so they have few
        places to hide themselves away. Their tunneling activity plows the land,
        creating cultivated soil that’s great for agriculture. Because of this,
        many people in the Alola region are grateful for the presence of
        Diglett.

        The hairlike growths sprouting from Diglett’s head are
        metallic whiskers. It’s said they developed these stiff yet flexible
        whiskers in order to survive in the hostile volcanic environment. The
        whiskers provide a sensory function, enabling Alolan Diglett to scan the
        surrounding area without exposing their faces aboveground.

        Their
        current emotional state is revealed by their whiskers. When their
        whiskers stand straight up, they’re angry. Whiskers that wave are a sign
        that the Pokémon is on alert. When they swing their whiskers around,
        they’re in a good mood, and when their whiskers droop, they’re feeling
        lonely or downhearted.

        Alolan Diglett can have the Tangling Hair
        Ability, which is a new Ability that no other Pokémon has previously
        had. With the Tangling Hair Ability, opponents that hit Alolan Diglett
        with a move that makes direct contact will have their Speed lowered by
        1.”

      • Pharap

        “In the Alola region, Dugtrio is revered as an incarnation of the god of
        the land, and it’s treated with great importance. This is why the people
        of Alola fall to their knees and bow deeply whenever they come across
        an Alolan Dugtrio that has poked its faces out of its burrow.

        Alolan
        Dugtrio’s whiskers shine with a brilliance akin to golden hair. The
        whiskers are flexible, just like Diglett’s, but hard and strong. They
        continue to grow throughout an Alolan Dugtrio’s life, although at a very
        slow rate. Removing Alolan Dugtrio whiskers from the Alola region is
        prohibited. It’s said that those who take them receive divine
        punishment. Every year, many tourists come back, apparently to return
        whiskers they had taken.

        There is a superstitious belief that
        many Alolan Dugtrio come out of their holes on a day when a volcano will
        erupt. Older residents of Alola will flee immediately at the sight.
        It’s thought that Alolan Dugtrio, which live beneath the ground’s
        surface, detect movements in the ground that indicate an impending
        eruption and are so alarmed that they come aboveground.”

        • Ultron

          I can’t wait to pluck all those “whiskers”

          • Pharap

            I like alolan Dugtrio more than regular Dugtrio, I’m considering having one on my team.

  • SpectralSeraph

    I’m so sorry…..
    UB03 .. aka
    WACKY INFLATABLE ARM FLAILING LIGHT MAN

  • Prashanth Raghuram

    Necrozma is Black Hole right? That would complete the trio in a cyclical sense.

      Tru

  • Tobin

    Question: what was your first pokemon? mine was totodile

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      hmmm. piplup?

    • Squirtle

    • Pharap

      Treecko

    • Tobin

      all of your picks are some of my fave starters!

    • EarthenWarrior

      Charmander

    • Sunny

      Cyndaquil

      • Tobin

        Johto!

      • Pharap

        That was my second starter 😛

        • Sunny

          That was the only starter I ever use when playing that generation.

          • Dörko

            I alternate 2-3 times cyndaquil to 1 time totodile

          • Pharap

            I tried Chicorita once, it wasn’t too bad, but Cyndaquil is still my favouirite G2 starter.

          • towelgirl21

            Chikorita is my bae. Still, I like them all a lot. I think I’ll use a Totodile in my next playthrough of HG.

    • Dicie

      Mudkip in Pokemon Sapphire some 8 years ago.

    • Kyle Kottenbrook

      Squirtle was my first he took my pokecard…….but bagon is my real love.

      • Ultron

        Lol your pokecard.

        • Kyle Kottenbrook

          It’s a serious matter……he made me squirtle. 🙁

          • Ultron

            Oh my

    • Ithsme

      Turtwig

    • towelgirl21

      Well, officially: Chespin when I bought my first game, Pokemon X.

      I did mess around with Pokemon Red and Pokemon Crystal on playr.org, and I had a Charmander and a Totodile respectively. I never finished either game.

    • Tobin

      Love all your starters!

    • SpectralSeraph

      Torchic :3

    • Dörko

      that charmander best starter hype tho

    • Gamer Dragon07

      Charmander’s my first very pokemon but Squirtle was my first pokemon to reach lvl 100

    • Ultron

      Squirtle 🙂

    • ShinyXatu

      Must have been Torchic!

    • SlightlyJollyHerbert

      Mewtwo was the first I can remember

  • EarthenWarrior

    Alright i’m going to bed…. and when i wake
    3 days lie ahead

  • Pharap
    • Tobin

      Oh dear…

      • SpectralSeraph

        Chingyyyy

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      i love chingaling

      • Ultron

        I hate chingling :/ The only redeeming quality is that it’s a jingle bell and I love Christmas

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          but is so cute

          • Ultron

            Ehhhh I tend to dislike baby pokemon.

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            i mean they are useless and they dont bring nothing to the table. but some of them are cute

          • Ultron

            Maybe I would like it more if Chimecho got an evo and became more relevant.

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            chimecho got stat boost atleast

          • Ultron

            It did? How much?

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            +30 i think

          • Ultron

            +5 sp. attack, +15 for defense, and +10 for sp. def would help it

        • SpectralSeraph

          That and Mime Jr are the only two I excuse

        • Pharap

          It’s supposed to be the sort of bell they have at Japanese shrines.

          And I’m not just saying that because I hate christmas.

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        i realize i mispell it so bad

        • Ultron

          only one letter, my friend

  • Pharap
    • TwoWorlds EastGovnah

      we get it, you wanna marry shiggy

      • Pharap

        A) Nope, I’m 100% heterosexual
        B) Nope, I have no intentions to ever get married
        C) The only reason I don’t post the plain images is because I like giving credit
        D) It’s not like much else is going on

    • Ultron

      Nah, that ben 10 thing looks more like Gigalith

  • Tobin

    Good night! love you all! 🙂 <3

  • towelgirl21

    I ended up preordering both games, and now I’m trying to decide which to play first. I wanna say Sun, since I preordered it first, but Moon has Midnight Lycanroc and Drampa… decisions decisions.

    • Well, both have Midnight Lycanroc if you’r willing to catch it on the 4th island at night

  • Dörko

    ugh no luck hatchin shiny ponyta at all… might go safari up a jigglypuff or something

  • Ultron

    Omg I’m listening to Platinum’s music and crying. It was so beautiful. T-T

  • Ok wow so this is crazy. So I’m in once of those moods where is want to really f*cked uo scary stuff on YouTube because ya know, who needs sleep and found this video of this caller who called in on this radio show. His voice was super uneasy and shakes and he was panicking. He claimed that he worked for Area 51 and was released on a medical discharge. He said that he had been traveling across the country for a week and that what we know as aliens are being used. He used the term “inter-dimensional beings” and said that they were using them to lower the population of major places in order to make it more controllable. Few seconds afterwards the radio signal was cut off and the show escorted to a back up cable.

    A while later, someone called back claiming that they were that guy and it was a hoax but many debate whether if it was actually the same person or if it was and he had to be shut up and lie that it was all fake. Nobody knows if it was real.

    HOW AMAZING WOULD THIS BE AS INSPIRATION FOR SUN AND MOONS STORY WITH ULTRA BEASTS

    (If you know the SuMo story don’t confirm or deny this)

    • Pharap

      Are you sure you’re not drunk?

      • Dörko

        no I have no rum 🙁

        • Pharap

          • Dörko

            a bit of captain and Dr pepper sounds good right bought now. I think most u guys still in school tho no.?

          • Pharap

            Not me, I’m in my 20s.
            No idea what captain is but I wouldn’t touch Dr Pepper or Coca Cola with a barge pole.

            Tbh I haven’t touched a drop since the early hours of new year’s day, but when I do drink it’s wine, proseco or cider.

          • Dörko

            captain Morgan. spiced rum.

          • Pharap

            Oh right. Never tried rum.
            I don’t tend to drink spirits.

          • Dörko

            most of the time if I do drink it’s rum. but that’s only like once a week or so

      • I swear to drunk I am not god so don’t worry about it

    • Exeledus

      I will give you a horrifying one, I check out horror related stuff all the time, I love it, and horror is one of my favorite game genres. anyways, check out the channel “mr. nightmare” for the best quality horror channel. there’s a video about disturbing 911 calls (emergency services here in the US) and a lady named Ruth’s call always gives me chills.

    • Wow I was tired last night I spelled nothing right

  • AceTrainer

    Do we know if we have any lore behind Z moves and Z crystals?

    • Pharap

      Erm…. pancakes?

  • Pharap

    When the 18th comes I will be leaving for a while and I may or may not return.

    • Exeledus

      wha-… why?

      • Pharap

        Mainly because the game is released 5 days early for NTSC regions so all the people in PAL regions are going to be bombarded by spoilers and being constantly reminded what we’re missing out on for 5 days won’t be fun. Avoiding it will make the time go quicker.

        When I’ve finally got the game I’ll probably be playing it instead of using my computer for a few days and I’ll be trying to take it slowly to make it last this time.

        As for the potentially not returning thing, it’s been fun here, but once the game’s been released there will be nothing to speculate about or anticipate, so there will be less reason to hang around. Besides which when I get here it’s hard to leave so I could do with cutting down anyway.

        I don’t know, I might return, it depends how things go.

        • Exeledus

          oh. well if you do decide not to return, just remember that even though you and I didn’t always agree on everything, I still considered you (and everyone else here for that matter) a friend 😀

          • Pharap

            I can’t remember us ever having any major disagreements, at least not compared to some of the disagreements I’ve been a part of here.

            (That said I think the person I’ve had the least disagreements with is Earthen, ironically.)

            It’s nice to know I will be missed if I do go though. Like I say, I might return afterwards, but it probably won’t be for a while.

        • Spetsnaz

          It’s always fun to just talk about the other random stuff between games 🙂 just something to consider

    well, I’m not sure if anyone is familiar with the youtube channel “Epic Rap Battles of History” but they finally made a pokemon one, between Ash Ketchum and Charles Darwin. kinda relevant I suppose.

    • Pharap

      Various other people brought it up earlier.

      I’ll give it a miss, I don’t like rap 😛

      • Exeledus

        its more for the comedy, but I’m with you there.

      • Ultron

        Rap generally sucks, but I find some of these humorous.

    Huh, I wonder what this could possibly have been made for?

      Kanto remakes

    • The title only says Wonderful Funny Pictures. (so non-indicative of the story heh)

      The starters play with a ball and lose it. They stumble upon Time City where time seems to have stopped, so they play pranks on the time-stopped Pokemon (expecting the time to resume later). Eventually they find the ball lodged in the clock tower which is the cause of the time stopping. After they remove it, time resumed which resulted in the pranked Pokemon getting confused and trolled.

      Probably for that certain Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game involving Time or something? Though it does say Pokemon Daisuki Club in the end.

    Hey so I saw this thing that when you use a Z move in conjunction with a status move an additional effect with occur, i.e. Your attack raises by 1, etc. my question is: say you have your Rowlet use a normal type Z move in conjunction with growl: will you do damage the way you would with, say, tackle? Or would you just have the side effect that comes when growl is used with a Zmove, or both? Hope my question is clear! Because these Z moves are really confusing me lol

    • Armaggedon16

      If you have a normal type z crystal on your rowlett and you press on the z power option,

      Your normal type attacking moves such as tackle will turn into breakneck blitz, the normal z move and will do damage.

      Growl will turn into Z-growl
      I’ll raise your attack by 1 stage, which is the z power side effect and then the normal growl animation will play and you’ll lower your opponents attack. It will not do any damage

      And yet it still has a place in the meta as a hard counter to Beauty given it doesn’t have any way of shutting down Priority on its own.

      Haven’t been able to play another game every other player just quits when they see a team of talonflame

    MAJOR STORY SPOILERS
    This is seriously the best Plot in any Pokémon Game. Lillie’s character development is unlike any in a Pokemon game. I thought Hau would be annoying, but I grew to like him as well. Gladion is up there with N as my favourite Character. Lusamine is crazy,and the best villain in Pokemon. Her merging with UB-01 was crazy. I loved everything.
    Now it’s time for the elite 4
