Several leaks and announcements are pointing to Niantic gearing up for something huge in Pokémon GO!

Pictures, screenshots, and more have popped up from a confidential notice for Starbucks employees about a new sponsorship deal with the popular coffee shop beginning on December 8th. This sponsorship includes making most, but not all, Starbucks locations a Gym or Pokéstop in game and the introduction of a brand new Pokémon GO inspired Frappuccino! But what’s bigger than the appropriately Raspberry flavored blended drink is that the employee notice says “Pokémon GO is about to expand with new Pokémon” and a “new update.” This, alongside an official partnership with Sprint to make 10,500 locations Gyms or PokéStop adds to the hopefully growing list of sponsorships, and the possible introduction to Generation II Pokémon.

But if Gen II is just around the corner, what about the still omitted legendary Pokémon from Gen I? What do you think, will this holiday season mark us being able to catch Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile and the rest of Generation II in GO? Whatever the case, the update on Dec. 12th will definitely shed some light on the matter.

  • Cosimo

    Is anyone still playing Pokémon Go?

    • Axel Malabanan

      genwunners probably

    • Pokenar

      Enough to still be the most played mobile game(iirc), its just not the most popular app period anymore.

    • Well since Sun and Moon are out I haven’t touched it. But it was an awesome diversion while it lasted. And I walk around more nowadays still.

    • BKNTD

      It was fun for the first month or so. Then it just gets repetitive and Niantic desperately wants to keep their players, so they make things easier and give you events for catching the Pokemon, that you already most likely have.

      • SpectralSeraph

        OH BOIH!!! MAYBE THIS NEW UPDATE CAN HELP ME GET ANOTHER MAROWAK!!!

        That’s literally what go is at this point, repetitive trash

    • The Last Kurusu

      Yes I am

    • Heck yeah!

  • TheGreatGuardian

    Is this conference tonight or tomorrow night?

  • Starbucks is really off the damn mark with the fashionableness of this promotion haha, but lucky for them, about half my friends will fanatically buy starbucks without pokemon go welded to it

    • Lol “confidential: do not share before december 8

      • Comments like this make me want to seize the means of production. 😛

  • Review Reviewer

    No offence Niantic but JUST Gen 2 won’t fix your game.

  • Review Reviewer

    Niantic instead of being a corrupt, cheap and ignorant company like you are, how about implementing all 6 OTHER GENERATIONS?! No stupid events, no stupid sponsorships, JUST FOCUS ON THEM! If not then Pokemon Go will be known as the game of disappointment.

  • Review Reviewer

    YES YES YES YES I finally hatched a shiny Mareanie! WOO!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Nice! Well done 🙂

      • Review Reviewer

        Thank you!

    • Paulsey

      I’m planning on breeding mareani till I hatch a shiny too ! I already have the nature , gender , and 4egg moves , I’ll continue breeding till I get one with 5+ ivs , then I’ll start to breed it in bulk using the perfect parent.

      • Review Reviewer

        Oh nice!

  • SpectralSeraph

    Serebii updated with info about go and I’m really torn over itv

    For one I would love to make it to gen 3 to see a Flygon in it… but at the same time it’s such a casual game and really just needs to die already. It’s done nothing of use for the Pokémon community

    • Vlad

      Pokemon go is just horrible. It completely strips away the main components of the damn game. I don’t think there’s ever been a more watered down Pokemon experience

  • SpectralSeraph

    found code referencing the entire second generation of Pokémon including mentions of Chikorita, Totodile, Qwilfish and others,

    Why the hell is Qwilfish mentioned

    • MenacingCascoon

      I have your turtle

  • Leo

    Sad to say I’m over SM. I can’t get myself to continue the game after finishing the main story. I think the game mechanics are really starting to bore me, even if SM changed them a bit. Still very excited for the pokemon themselves though

    • Yu Narukami

      >implying Pokémon still isn’t the greatest thing ever.
      >why am I green texting outside of 4chan?

      But seriously, at least you made it to post game. For me personally, finishing th main story is satisfying enough.

      • Leo

        I struggled to even finish the main story lol. Once I got to Pony Island I didn’t feel like playing anymore

        • Review Reviewer

          Your adulthood is catching up with you.

    • Prince Fae

      honestly I feel you, XY I played the hell out of but once ORAS came I found myself kind of bored with pokemon in general, I was a big shiny hunter/breeder, but this generation I don’t want to really do either, I thought the games were simply amazing but I’m starting to feel as if my pokemon days are coming to an end

      • Leo

        Exactly how it happened to me. For me to be really interested in pkm again they’ll have to actually make games targeted to an older audience, and not always kind of the same story (kid discovering the world, beating the evil organization etc). Maybe there’s some hope with the Switch

        • Prince Fae

          At least I still have zelda, so Im ok, but then again the last of us part 2 is coming so ill also be throwing my money at playstation, hopefully they are also working on a new dragon age game

          • Leo

            Besides Pokemon and Animal Crossing I don’t play video games that much. I recently watched a playthrough of the two last Lara Croft games and they’re so good, but I could never play such games though ahah (too much violence for me)

          • Ultron

            Why don’t you try completing the national Dex or competitive battling?

          • Leo

            Completing the dex has always been boring to me and same thing for competitive battling

          • Vlad

            How is competitive battling boring? You must be a boring person or maybe this game just isn’t cut out for you. The strategy it takes to win a competitive battle is so entertaining. And then when you outsmart your opponent and actually win its the best feeling

          • Leo

            I’ve been playing pokemon since I was very young and never felt the need to play competitively lol. No patience to breed and do all that shit just to get “decent” pokemon to then battle against people who use basically the same pokemon. I still love the franchise, gamefreak just has to step up their game and actually target it to young adults too.

      • Vlad

        You guys need to BATTLE. You wouldn’t be bored if you stopped just collecting and actually get into the competitive play swing of things. I’m at work right now itching to get home and just have a good battle

        • Prince Fae

          …. wth I battle all the time, online battles are the least fun part of every pokemon game because all people ever do is use the same pokemon over and over again, boring.

    • At the risk of sounding like I’m kicking you out, (and I’m not,) it’s really not a good use of time playing something you no longer enjoy, so just take a break if not quit entirely, and use your free time for something better.

      • Leo

        I still like to follow pkm news though!

        • Ah well that’s fair. At least you’ll still be around here even if ya don’t play as much.

    • Ultron

      You’re breaking my heart. You’re going down a path that I can’t follow ;-;

    • Review Reviewer

      I guess you’re just getting too old to enjoy Pokemon.

      • The Singular Kuppo

        You’re never too old to enjoy Pokemon

  • SpectralSeraph

    Guys! Guys! I think I’m getting really close to finding the anti-Ou for this gen!
    All I’m going to say is that
    Araquanid Zygarde 50% is a scary combo
    And that scarfed roserade can kill every Tapu in one hit while only theatened by scarfed lele

    • EarthenWarrior

      Well hurry up
      Every since the Gen 7 stuff flooded Showdown my ratings are in the toilet

      • SpectralSeraph

        The only thing is that I still have testing with fire sivally
        But let me say
        Zygarde counters all of the less spammed threats (Minior, Salazzle, Minior)
        Roserade counters tapus
        Araquanid is an EXTREMELY good bait for Xurkitree, most people switch in to damage it but Xurkitree can’t OHKO outside of Gigavolt or a crit. Araquanid OHKOS Xurk
        Araq seems to tank Pheramosa
        The other members of my team cover other specific roles, coverage mainly

        • EarthenWarrior

          Ughhhh I really don’t want to use legends

          • SpectralSeraph

            Is there really a choice? Most pre bank grounds are trash

          • EarthenWarrior

            But I don’t want to use Pre Bank either
            Just wanted to make a new team with new stuff, but like always I’m stupid to believe it could work against the legends

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh post bank too? I’m just checking pre for now
            Araquanid is insane though

          • EarthenWarrior

            Oh ( I swear I always get them mixed up)
            Araqunid is scary, the other night it totally botched my team because of it going bulky

          • SpectralSeraph

            Exactly! I said in the beginning
            Calling it! My boi is OU!
            Everyone doubted
            ability effect was discovered?
            Still no one believed
            Game came out
            Smogon doesn’t believe, its not getting an OU analysis despite being better than a good 70% of the new meta, 80% if we don’t count legends and UBs

    • Ben

      I haven’t been on Showdown since Sun and Moon released. What Araquanid set are you using?

  • UnburdenedLegume

    86% Pokedex completion. Sooo close I can feel the finish line!

  • Well finally the UK Magearna code is out…

  • EarthenWarrior

    I swear every single match I lose always because of a legend or mega

    • Vlad

      Literally the same for me. Those things are so broken

  • EarthenWarrior

    Of course the very first Monotype is grass with nothing but Tapu and UB MIXED IN WITH ALL MY STRESSES

    • You’re probably not gonna use Zygarde aren’t you. 🙂

      • EarthenWarrior

        No because I want to win without a cheap crutch

        • It’s not a “cheap crutch” when the rules indicate you can use anything you want in the national dex that isn’t banned.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Ouch….
      Welp, your boi is goin in with bug! And I’m not touching those damn UB’s
      MASQUERAIN COUNTER FTW

      • SpectralSeraph

        Mono bug is hype
        #megascizor

        • EarthenWarrior

          Yeah Forretress, Heracross, Pinsir, Galvantula, Armaldo, Scizor,
          All a consistent pain

          • SpectralSeraph

            You kiddin? I’m runnin my boi Araq, how could you forget him?

    • Chaos

      *Plays Monotype
      *Expects all opponents to be weak to ground

      Seems legit

      • EarthenWarrior

        I don’t expect all…
        Just don’t want to be staring down a loaded Bulu that can kill everyone easily

    • Also, monotype is entire bank, so I’d just use Lando if I were you.

      • EarthenWarrior

        No, my team is nearly perfect

  • Legend Hamilton

    I’m 1605 and rated battles double

  • SpectralSeraph

    Why is Masquerain actually hype as hell on montype?

    • The only bug-type intimidate out there, now more viable than ever with the Gen 7 SpA and Speed buff.

      • SpectralSeraph

        Such a god

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Apparently content was cut from Sun and Moon. Very interesting. That would make the Stars rumors even more plausible imo

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Where’d you hear that?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        There’s a Youtube video showing files of content that are in the games’s folder, but not actually in-game. Lillie has two Pokemon trainer models and so does Mohn, the guy from Poke Pelago. In fact, Mohn is pretty high up the list, above Guzma and Looker and in the same group as the Aether models. Which lets me to believe the theory that Mohn from Poke Pelago is the same Professor Mohn who used to work for Aether and created Type: Null.

        There are also overworld sprites for Zygarde and the rest of the Alola dex, so that tells me they were planning on bringing back the partner mechanic from HGSS.

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Oh yeah I saw that. I thought you meant that they officially said they needed to scrap some stuff or something. And yeah I’d say this stuff adds credence to the Stars rumor. Not that I didn’t believe it from the beginning given both Emily Rogers and Eurogamers track record, but still this is good stuff. That said I wouldn’t say that this stuff was cut. Rather maybe more so just left in as they were testing out the mechanics. Also having certain models in there lets them have flexibility with their ideas. So if they had really wanted Lillie to be battle-able then they could have done it. Either way I look forward to seeing what Stars has to offer. I’m incredibly excited about the prospects of the first main series Pokemon game being not only on the TV, but also in full HD! lol

          • UnburdenedLegume

            I’m also positive Stars will focus more on Necrozma and Fallers (humans with Ultra Wormhole energy)

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Also, Mohn is most likely Lillie and Gladion’s father

          • Ultron

            I mean it’s basically a fact. He has blonde hair, green eyes, his hair is similar to gladion’s, he’s name dropped a few times in the game, and runs the pokepelago, which is a pokemon paradise like the aether foundation.

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Agreed lol

  • Monkeyfuzz
    • Ultron

      Mega Jirachi???!

      No offence to the creator but that video is broken. It only works partially until abut 6:15 and its clips are messed up.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        They do go in reverse at one point. Still it’s funny for the Pulverising Pancake and a few others 😉

        • Review Reviewer

          Meh…..I’ve seen a few better.

    • Green

      Oh my gosh that Jirachi

    • SpectralSeraph

      Thats beautiful

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Here’s a summary of the video I just saw, the first one most of us probably already knew though:
    1: Marshadow+Marshadium Z, 6 exclusive Pikachu forms, Pikashunium Z and Mewnium Z
    2: Default and 10% Zygarde overworld models
    3: Fourth type of enemy
    4: Lille trainer model
    5: Mohn trainer model, listed above Guzma and in the same bracket as the Aether Foundation

    • Ultron

      What do you mean when you say fourth type of enemy

      • The Singular Kuppo

        There are 3 songs in the game when you encounter a trainer, one for normals one for skull and another for aether, they found a 4th one, and its only a breeze of air that you can hear from it

        • Ultron

          That’s really weird

          • The Singular Kuppo

            Yeah…

      • UnburdenedLegume

        There’s a 4th track for enemy encounters, but its not used in the game

  • Monkeyfuzz
    • Ultron

      Walking with megas???

      • UnburdenedLegume

        If they implement this in Stars that’d be freakin awesome

        • Ultron

          I wonder if the other megas have them too?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        It might be a placeholder, like shiny UB’s

        • Ultron

          Maybe, but they did take the time to animate a model for it, as preliminary as it may be. Plus, who knows, shiny UB’s could be an event giveaway

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I hope so.

    • EarthenWarrior

      That chajabug is so squishy

    Nintendo issued a $20,000 bounty if you report hackers to them. They’re clearly very pissed about Sun and Moon got leaked 2 weeks before release

    Serenotic you upvote one of my comments but you don’t leave a message? Where are you boy

  • UnburdenedLegume

    ”Gamecube games coming to the Switch VC, sources confirmed to Eurogamer. Gamecube VC has already been tested, and is working as intended. So far three GC games have been prepped for the Switch. Super Mario Sunshine, Super Smash Bros Melee and Luigi’s Mansion”

    • EarthenWarrior

      The big three
      Hmmmmmm what GC games would I pay to relive….
      Hmm Paper Mario TYD and Mario Kart Double Dash honestly maybe Mario Power Tennis (but they have the new play control out)
      I mean I have a ton of old games that enthralled my younger self but seeing them as a Virtual Console seem unlikely
      Bomberman Generations/Jetters
      Sonic Adventure 1/2
      Super Monkey Ball
      Pikmin 1-2 seem possible but….I just played them all a month ago
      Oooo Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness could be good

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I need TYD, DD, Tennis, Sunshine and Melee and I can die a happy man

        • UnburdenedLegume

          I guess Colosseum and XD would be nice too, but I didn’t enjoyed those games as much as others did.

        • EarthenWarrior

          The funny/delusional thing is I have them all on a shelf but I’m too scared that the GameCube won’t play them

          • UnburdenedLegume

            I have them on the Dolphin emulator, but the fps drops are annoying af so I cba to play them

          • The Last Kurusu

            I have the original GC in working order still

          • EarthenWarrior

            I really just wish one day all games can be “absorbed” into a mega emulator that never breaks, never runs slow or glitches out, all games run like clockwork and a “Everycontroler” that attuned to each game…
            And it has a sexy layout library that resembles each boxart instead of text….
            One day

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Well if Amazon introduces a store where you can grab what you want and walk out, I’m sure your idea can be implemented as well somehow.

    • The Last Kurusu

      My hopes for coming back

      -Double Dash
      -Mario Sunshine
      -Luigi’s Mansion Original
      -Pokémon Colloseum (maybe remake with up to Gen.7?)
      -Paper Mario and Thousands year old door

      Maybe more if I think about it

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Also a little update on the Sun and Moon anime. Confirmed that Ash gets to meet Lusamine in episode 8 and gets to meet Hala and starts his first trial in episode 9.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I’m more interested if Hau himself becomes Ash’s new rival with his very own Pikachu

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I don’t like Hau so if he plays a minor role in the anime I’m okay with that. I still feel that Kiawe becomes Ash’s rival

        • EarthenWarrior

          Kiawe is more the stern mentor type, keeping Ash in line when it comes to Z-Moves but valuing the more strict traditional ways of doing things which clash with Ash’s unorthodox methods

          I still greatly want to see Ash ACTUALLY GET SOME RIVALS EARLY
          Honestly as great Sawyer was he still didn’t get a ton of activity, unlike Paul the greatest rival ever…

          But my idea is Hau is basically Ash’s other half, a stupidly cheerful battler who takes on everything he sees, he has his own Pikachu who shows almost as much power as Ash’s but he also wants to be Island Champion and this fuels their Frivalery

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Gladion? Honestly I see some similarities with Paul in him. Strives to be strongest and doesn’t allow anything to get in his way.

          • EarthenWarrior

            He’s secretly good, because his psychobitch mama is of the deep end
            But I would like to see him have a bigger role

            I mean they can’t confine every episode to the school house

          • UnburdenedLegume

            The school is just a front I think, for semi-filler episodes maybe? I really doubt they’re going to dedicate an entire season to Ash’s shenanigans in school.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Indeed, I gotta go take a grunt, maybe later we can get a LC Royale later tonight
            Take first stages and load them with TMs

          • SpectralSeraph

            PLEASE MAKE GLADION EARLY
            (Will legit jump off a bridge if his voice is screwed up

          • I want Zach Aguilar to play him in the dub(For those of you who have watched the One Punch Man dub,he plays Genos)I can just imagine it and it fits so perfectly.

    • The Last Kurusu

      Does he catch Litten?!

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Hard to say. I like to think he will, its sort of a similar situation as with his Krookodile.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Actually in tomorrow’s episode that Litten ends up getting attacked by a Persian and Ash saves it. Similarities with Charmander, which got attacked by a flock of Spearow when Ash saved it

        • EarthenWarrior

          Wait isn’t that next week?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Nope episode 6 is tomorrow. Episode 7 is next week

          • UnburdenedLegume

            You mean the Togedemaru episode right?

          • EarthenWarrior

            I feel that’s wrong

          • UnburdenedLegume

            You’re right I mixed them up. Togedemaru is tomorrow, Litten is next week.
            Also, Ash will battle Totem Gumshoos in episode 9 apparently.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Damn right I’m right

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Did you see the off-camera gameplay video of Yooka-Laylee?

          • EarthenWarrior

            I skimmed it, I have sucked down every molecule of the Yooka-Laylee info
            It’s only been Tribalstack Tropics so if they show one thing they’re only showcasing the same footage

        • The Last Kurusu

          Cat fight!!! I’ll get the popcorn!

        • SpectralSeraph

          Litten……

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          What……….charmander was never attacked by a flock of Spearow. That was Pikachu. Charmander was abandoned by his original trainer and Ash protected it from him

    • SpectralSeraph

      ARE YOU SERIOUS?! THIS QUICK?! THIS ANIME IS AMAZING!

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      So freaking happy about that. I figured they wouldn’t confine him to a school the whole season. How could they take away the traveling aspect? They can’t lol

    • Golden_Monferno

      Just a question, but would you say the SM anime is worth watching? Like does it seem better than XY and Z anime or as good as it?

  • EarthenWarrior

    Guess who snagged a vintage Majora’s Mask Prima Strategy guide for 10$

  • SpectralSeraph

    Anyone else hope Ash gets a Wimpod?

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Im hoping for a Dewpider

      • SpectralSeraph

        I would love it but I dont see it in any way

        • The Singular Kuppo

          Yeah, it doesnt quite fit Ash

    • The Last Kurusu

      My idea for his Pokémon

      Pikachu
      Rowlet
      Litten probably
      Crabrawler or Passimian
      Minior maybe though
      Drampa or Dewpider
      Jangmo-o

  • Ben

    Well my three-Pokémon pre-bank Normal Gym is ready! Unfortunately not all of our badges are finished so I guess there will be more waiting before the challenges start..

    • The Last Kurusu

      I wish it was up and running I want a challenge yet question are they all set at lvl.50 or no restrictions?

      • Ben

        I guess it’s up to the gym leader, but I don’t know why anybody wouldn’t choose set all to 50.

        • The Last Kurusu

          Oh then what are the Gym levels? I guess the lower on the list the lower it has to be, yet I hope it’s like a regular game with example Gym 1 lvl’s around mid teens so on so on

          • I think it’s all just level 50

          • The Last Kurusu

            Oh ok that’s good then it’s a little more fair for beginners

          • Ben

            Oh, we’re definitely not doing that. Everybody is gonna be at the same level.

          • The Last Kurusu

            Ok

    • Dang I gotta get to work on this

    • SpectralSeraph

      I wanna challenge it XD

      • Ben

        Soon…

        • SpectralSeraph

          I’m gonna 100% sweep :3

  • The Last Kurusu

    Hey who wants an Egg? but I’d like a Rowlet in return

    • The Last Kurusu

      Mareanie egg to be exact

    • The Last Kurusu

      Not a competitive one just a random one I actually prefer a non competitive Rowlet

      • The Singular Kuppo

        I have a female Decidueye, so i can breed to get a Rowlet

        • The Last Kurusu

          Ok thanks!

  • SpectralSeraph

    Just tried chaining for a S-Boost sharpedo
    The other sharpedo use swagger
    The original gets confused
    OTHER dies
    Original kills itself

    • Chaos

      Another reason why SOS chaining is much better than Hordes.

      /sarcasm

      • Higher chance for HA and egg moves and IVs. Though

        • SpectralSeraph

          Dex Nav says hello..

          Legit, I’m tired of this shit

      • SpectralSeraph

        Amazing right?

  • EarthenWarrior

    So apparently if a Pokemon maximizes its EVs the Hexagon EV needles turn light blue

  • EarthenWarrior

    I set out to catch a Stufful ready to endure a long agonizing grind
    First thing I see and catches it in a Heal ball at full health

  • Jimmy Roche

    I just got the shiny charm in omega Ruby, any news on this in moon?

    • You get the shiny harm by completing only the regional dex

  • I’m really excited to finish my competitive team today. Just need to Train Sp.Atk for Salandit as well as Speed for Salandit and Mimikyu then EV training is done! Then all that’s left is leveling up and getting the right moves .-.

    Level 100 for Magearna and Silvally lets go I guess

    • brad

      I fished up 2 or 3 before I even found a Dhelmise, so I didn’t think they were too rare. I just kept entering/exiting the building instead of soft-resetting.

  • How come Bulbapedia includes Mohn as Lillies Dad despite it not being said in game or by anything official, basically saying it’s because theres enough evidence, and yet won’t include Zygarde as part of a trio with Xerneas and Yveltal despite it being clear as day?

    (ps, I know it’s obvious that Mohn is their dad, but my point is the double standard)

    • SpectralSeraph

      Because Zygarde is Green, Xerneas is Blue and Yveltal is Red
      Zygarde is not a primary color

      • I’m not good at noticing if something is joke so I apologise.
        Rayquaza is Green too.

        • SpectralSeraph

          It’s a joke XD

          The Eagle, The Deer and the Snake or the World Tree.

          Just irritating that Bulbapedia, the top site for Pokemon info, refuses to acknowledge it.

      2. Golisopod
      3. Lurantis

      • Review Reviewer

        Golisopod? Isn’t it just its antennas red and blue patterns?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Its’ armour is also white instead of very light blue, I like it because of its’ subtlety.

        It kinda literally is unnatural

      • Um excuse me it is literally a robot

        • SpectralSeraph

          I mean even for a robot.. nothing should be moving like that…

  • Review Reviewer

    Did anyone else reach any of their Pokemon to lvl 100?

    • Chaos

      I don’t think I’ve ever leveled a Pokemon all the way to 100.

      • Review Reviewer

        I assume you either didn’t train any or didn’t use EXP share.

        • Chaos

          Or I just don’t bother. There’s never been any need to.

          Apart from now, where you need to be lvl 100 to Hyper Train.

            How do you Hyper Train?

  • I just realised, 4 of the 5 Zygarde Cores are in Kahuna Houses, the 5th is in yours.
    That’s some really clever placing, I wonder if there was an in game reason, like they went to 5 Important places, it was hinted that Zygarde sensed something was gonna happen.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Literally everyone often has the advantage to what I like
            I’m used to it, but this particular Mudsdale is specially defensive and I’ll just kick it to death

        • Green

          I honestly just love that you get to travel with her throughout the game. It gets pretty close to my dream of being able to travel witg a choice of certain NPCs. And the battles would be double and stuff.

    • Green

      But yeah, no, on the topic, they should have the same dialogue. She could want to travel together as girls. Who cares honestly?

  • Review Reviewer

    I’m a tad confused on this Hyper training…for it when it means lvl 100 do you mean you NEED a lvl 100 pokemon to unlock it, or it only functions on Lvl 100 Pokemon?

    • Only works on a level 100 pokemon for some stupid reason

  • Chaos

    So…I got a Random lvl 54 Lapras from Pokepelago.

    Well ok then, I’ll take it

    • SpectralSeraph

      Wait are they rare?

        I dunno. It just joined my party. I haven’t used Pokepelago all that much. I don’t even know how it works

      You need some different bait.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I have nothing to do until my Pokepalageo frees up in a day or two
    Gonna play skyward sword

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    everstone: check
    6iv ditto: check
    destiny knot: check
    oh baby im back

    • Ultron

      Still searching for that knot! >:I

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    breeding question, can you do the coin trick in SM?

    • There’s no circular area to spin around in one direction, this time.

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        R I P, why they make breeding not as easy as XY ugh

        • Well we can now hatch stuff automatically in pokepelago while sleeping at least. 🙁

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Don’t even see the point in that.

  • EarthenWarrior
    • SpectralSeraph

      WHOA

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      so beatiful

    • Ultron

      What color does the baby become when breeding?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Red

        • Ultron

          So it’s random?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Would you be able to save me a breedject if you get around to breeding this please?

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    they really got rid of PSS and the coin trick in SM, literally the best features in gen 6

    • Ultron

      Coin trick?

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        the one that you go to lumiose tower, put a coin under your circlepad and just let your character run till he gets the eggs hatched

        • Ultron

          Oooo…yeah. That was better at the battle resort though. Fuck everything about kalos

          • I hated the Battle Resort though. It was so easy to get stuck on stuff and the deep sand made me want to die

          • Ultron

            That’s why you use the coin. The battle resort was the greatest place to breed ever.

          • The “quicksand” was the first indication they don’t want egg hatching to be “too” autopilot… optimally we’d reverse direction at the sand. 😐

    • Ithsme

      God forbid they make something completely broken a little harder…

      The PSS thing sucks though.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I never did the coin thing, mostly because most coins are filthy and even if I cleaned it I would worry about breaking the pad.

    • Review Reviewer

      SHAVE IT SHAVE IT SHAVE IT!

      • If only there was a razor in Refresh…

        • Review Reviewer

          Then…cook it up by burning it away with the hairdryer.

          • Oh, well I can just deposit it in Isle Avue until it gets cooked…

    • Ultron

      Wait, incidental or accidental

      • I was trying to get one Pancham for living dex… 🙂

        (I hope I used incidental right.)

        • Ultron

          I think you mean accidental then xD

          • I guess yer right..!

  • Pokemania88

    Yo… Showdown anyone?

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      random or ou?

      • Pokemania88

        ou if you want

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          im carbbb

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            im at lobby

  • Ithsme

    I’m so conflicted. I really want to keep breeding my first team, but I feel obligated to finish the pikipek quest at this point.

  • SpectralSeraph

    Can we just take a minute to ponder the fact of how busted James’ Pokemon will be? He’s got a bottle cap collection….

    • Ithsme

      This NEEDS to be a thing.

      • SpectralSeraph

        I think we know who Ash is losing the league to this time

        • Ithsme

          Youngster Tristan.

          • SpectralSeraph

            N-no! James cause bottle caps

          • Ithsme

            Youngster Tristan can beat the E4 in around the same time span the protagonist can.

          • SpectralSeraph

            True true
            OR
            SUDDENLY ITS RYUKI!!! EVERYONES FAVORITE FANFICTION INSERT CHARACTER APPEARS !!

          • Ithsme

            Everyone is going to waste their time making theories about him and he’ll never be seen again.

            Or maybe,
            That’s the joke. He brags about being a “star” but nobody knows who he is, so he’s really not famous.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Exactly xD
            Watch him be the champ of stars and also be all eight gym leaders and seven trial captans… hell with it
            STARS IS A GAME WHERE EVERYONE IS RYUKI BECAUSE HE IS A SUPERSTAR

          • Ithsme

            I fear for the fate of totem pokemon in stars.

            I hope they aren’t removed altogether, maybe have them be postgame superbosses.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Isn’t it obvious? Synchro will be a thing next game
            Every totem is a dragon fused with Ryuki

          • Ithsme

            Of course! How could I have been so blind?

          • SpectralSeraph

            And you forgot, each theme is Ryukified, just him saying his name over and over again to the theme of the theme

    • Monkeyfuzz

      He keeps having to sell them though. Thinking about it I guess this is why he gets so much for them.

  • EarthenWarrior

    BITCHING A HEAVY BALL JANGMO-O

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I prefer Level for it, or Luxury. Love Ball for its’ puke-worthy shiny.

  • Ithsme

    Question: Is pokemon showdown completely updated? In other words, can I use it to accurately build a team?

    • SpectralSeraph

      Yes and no
      The mons and stuff are all there
      The tiers…. eh….

      • Ithsme

        I really don’t need tiers right now, so that’s good. Are the moves accurate?

        • SpectralSeraph

          Yep!

          • SpectralSeraph

            Except the Z-moves don’t properly display damage, but they do the proper amount

          • Ithsme

            Great, thanks! 🙂

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yw!

          • Ithsme

            Now I’m curious since you mentioned tiers. xD
            When do you think those will be updated? Do you know how long it took for XY?

          • SpectralSeraph

            I saw smogon post saying about a month

          • Ithsme

            Seems fair.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Until Touccannon is sitting their dying

  • Ithsme

    Completely unrelated to team building. . . but I keep calling Araquanid “Aquarachnid”.

    • SpectralSeraph

      (Twitching) Y-you can’t pronounce HIS name wrong

      • Ithsme

        Mershaydoo.

        • Uh oh… 🙂

        • SpectralSeraph

          …….
          Welp I’m done with life, jumping off a cliff, cya

    • Green

      How….?
      Araquanid is so catchy….

      • Ithsme

        The reason I do this is because that’s what I thought its name was until I saw it in game. I just read it too fast online I guess. xD

  • SpectralSeraph
    • Golden_Monferno

      So true lol

      • SpectralSeraph

        XD its true

    • Ithsme

      I just thought of something.

      • SpectralSeraph

        ??

    • Formes are placed in different tiers, so Midday will be on a higher tier laughing at Midnight…

      • SpectralSeraph

        XD it’s true

  • Golden_Monferno

    Alolan Sandslash is slowly becoming my favorite Pokemon to use on Showdown. People assume that Alolan Sandslash is useless because of that 4x Fighting and Fire weakness. And while that’s true, Slush Rush completely throws people off, so I’m able to bulldoze through entire teams with it XD

  • Ithsme

    I have a fun little challenge (if you can call it that) for everyone. Name your top 3 favorite gen 7 pokemon, and predict what tier they will be in. I want to see where you think some pokemon will be!

    • Tapu Lele – OU
      A. Marowak – OU
      Torkoal – OU Primarina – UU
      Bewear – Uber

      • SpectralSeraph

        Marshadow- Uber (This CANNOT BE DENIED WITH IT’S SIGNATURE)
        Decidueye- UU but used in OU once bank comes out as a partner with dugtrio
        Araquanid-OU (DONT SLEEP ON MY BOI!)

        • Ithsme

          7 star strike?

          • SpectralSeraph

            No, spectral thief

          • Ithsme

            Enlighten me.

          • SpectralSeraph

            90 BP ghost type move
            steals the opponents positive stat changes

          • Ithsme

            Oooooh, that’s certainly interesting. And OP.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yep!
            And it’s literally me

        • *uses Araquanid as pillow*

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Wouldn’t you drown?

          • I’ll get one with the hidden ability so it don’t have a water bubble. 🙂

          • SpectralSeraph

            And that will be a bad one

          • For combat yes, but for being a pillow, no more threat of drowning…

          • SpectralSeraph

            I honestly see it working a bit different

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I wonder if it’s water bubble distorts it and it actually has a much smaller head.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Awww

      • Ben

        Minior – UU
        Kartana – BL
        Araquanid – UU

        • SpectralSeraph

          Araquanid is OU imo, faaaar too good for UU

          • Ben

            I haven’t used it enough, but that’s encouraging to hear it’s doing well!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      1. Decidueye – UU
      2. Marshadow – Uber
      3. Golisopod – RU

      • SpectralSeraph

        EEEY!! TWO OF THE SAME FAVES!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It wasn’t until I saw Marshadow attack that I truly knew how much I loved it. Decidueye was a favourite as soon as I saw it though.

          • SpectralSeraph

            😀
            Golisopod is in my top 15 so you got really good taste

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Well you must have too then 🙂

          • SpectralSeraph

            😀 yay!

    • Ithsme

      Decidueye – RU
      Komala – OU
      Minior – OU

      Little bonus:
      Rowlet – LC (I’m willing to bet money on this one)

      • SpectralSeraph

        Decidueye is not Ru

        • Ithsme

          I’m not really that informed on tiers, but I thought it being a mixed attacker wouldn’t work well in UU.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh, that isn’t how its run, bulky pivot

          • Ithsme

            Hmm. I’ll have to steal your ideas keep that in mind.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Everyone runs it
            I actually decided to try Shackle, roost, SD and Defog

    • Primarina – UU/RU ;-;
      Mimikyu – OU
      Magearna – OU

      • SpectralSeraph

        Prim is UU

        • Ok good yay

        • Ithsme

          Might as well round out the starter trio. What about Incineroar? RU?

          • SpectralSeraph

            PFFFFT!! NO!
            Nu if it is lucky! Easily the worst fire starter ever made! Possibly the worst defensive typing in the entire game!
            (Behind certain Ice combos)

          • Uhhh… FYI, Houndoom was UU in Gen 5…

          • SpectralSeraph

            It was offensive and had sweeping potential. It was glass cannony
            Incineroar is a defensive pokemon attached to a purely offensive typing. It does not work at all

          • If only Incineroar learned Agility…

          • SpectralSeraph

            It’s rotting in a place where nobody has to see that ugly as hell design

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        yeah mimikyu wont be OU, sure disguise is such a good ability but the poor defenses it literally dies to any attack after disguise

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          edited*

        • Few things will really outspeed it though. Jolly max speed will take care of alot. You get a free swords dance and maybe even another if you can predict well then you get stab Ghost and Fairy moves.

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            his speed is still bad in a way because is not pass the holy 101 speed tier. plus the thing about mimikyu is how easy is to predict it. Everyone will always SD and then attack, so most people just stay, break the disguie and switch. most of them carry the basic Play Rough, SD, shadow claw, and shadow sneak. Any good bulky steel type walls the heck outta of it.

          • But Mimikyu is versatile enough to still leave people guessing. It can be a sweeper, a staller, or something else.

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            no offense, but he is not versatile at all. His HP hinders any type of stalling or wall ability and has no access to instant recovery. It does not have any move to be an utility mon. His only good set is the sweeper one with everyone use

          • SpectralSeraph

            He is OU.. even if it is for a niche reason.. the damn red card set
            To my knowledge, Scizor and Celesteela are freakin nightmares for it though

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            that niche is not good enough tbh. When it comes to niche it has to be something that can be used often in a battle. For example, Magnezone is only OU because of its niche totrap and kill Skarmory and Scizor. When it comes to mimikyu, after disguise is used, is niche is done, if you switch you are now carrying a death fodder through the entire battle

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh I know, I’m well aware
            It’s a niche in the same relam as Hawlucha, it’s far too good for UU yet not good enough for OU
            So BL is very accurate

          • Ithsme

            TBH BL is starting to make me hate the tier system. It’s no fair that a large group of pokemon don’t get to see play in any tier.

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            i mean you can still use BL pokemon and still be succesful. Togekiss, Zapdos and Weavile were BL

          • Ithsme

            My poor baby is BL…

            Where are BL pokemon legal? I thought they were “banned”, hence the name?

          • Banned from “a lower tier”. So being in BL prevents use in UU, but free game in OU.

          • Ithsme

            Oh, I gotcha. I thought it was banned from everything.

          • That would be Mega Rayquaza, banned from everything (except Anything Goes).

          • Ithsme

            The ubers, I know about those. I just hadn’t realized BL was even a thing until now.

          • Mega Rayray was beyond uber though. 🙂

          • Ithsme

            Wait really? That’s news to me.

          • Yep, it is banned from Uber, and they created the new Anything Goes tier to house it.

          • Ithsme

            Was that entire tier just people spamming dragon ascent? xD

          • Actually, no. Well at some point it’s mostly people using 5 swagplay klefkis… and 1 numel to counter the enemy klefkis.

            If you’re using any kinda sweeper, including mega rayray, you will need to baton pass a substitute to it, and hope it’s not broken by foul play while you set up.

          • Zapdos has returned to OU at some point, and Weavile became OU…

            Togekiss used to be OU.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Hey
            Things like Araquanid will likely end up OU
            Mimikyu lower BL or OU
            But remember
            At least it isn’t Mega Gallade syndrome

          • Ithsme

            MG syndrome?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Mega Gallade was in an awkward part of BL and literally was one of the least used pokemon imaginable

          • Ithsme

            Oh lol.

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      i Will just do a list for sun and moon tbh
      OU: The Tapus (Fini may drop), The UBs (Pheromosa needs to be banned), Toxapex, Dhelmise
      UU: Decidueye, Primarina, Tsareena, Bewear, Mudsdale, Palossand, Minior, Salandit
      RU: Araquanid, Lycanroc, Vikavolt
      PU: Gunshoos, Toucannon, Lurantis

      • Ithsme

        Eviolite Salandit too OP.

        • Is it actually any good?

          • Ithsme

            I’m just kidding because it said “Salandit” instead of Salazzle. xD

            For LC though, I wouldn’t be suprised.

      • SpectralSeraph

        MATE ARAQUANID IS NOT THAT LOW

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          listen i love araquanid but those stats are a mess, water bubble save him from being PU. Highkey can be BL tho

          • Ithsme

            What is BL?

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            ban list aka is too good to be RU, but not good enoguh to be officiallly a uu

          • Ithsme

            So basically pokemon tier limbo?

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            yeah lol

          • That’s BL2. 🙂

            BL is the list of pokemon banished from UU.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Aka, Decidueye if it got Leech seed

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            listen Drain Punch bewear should have been a thing

          • SpectralSeraph

            It’s OU
            Lemme just say this… it hits harder than damn Azumarill
            In fact,it has one of the hardest hitting moves in the game
            I’ve used it a lot in OU, and I can tell you it works
            UU least, OU most

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            but Azumarill has the typing, and the bulk and the priority. I hope you are right but i dont see hope

          • SpectralSeraph

            Trust me
            Lemme change your mind
            It one hit kills Xurkitree and can take a thunderbolt from it
            It can tank ANY special hit in the entire game pretty much
            And physically it’s no slouch either

      • Now if only we can get some love for Ice next gen 😀

        • Ithsme

          And steel, maybe.

          The next region will be a VLFS in an icy ocean.

          • Ultron

            I would love more steel and ice types

          • Ithsme

            Yeah, they got no love this gen.

          • Ultron

            I can hardly think of any new steel types

          • Ithsme

            Togedemaru, Sogaleo, Celesteela, Kartana, and Magearna.

            So literally NOTHING that wasn’t legendary or a cookie cutter pokemon.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Toge could have been good
            (Holding a piece of paper that reads “iron head”)

        • Ultron

          Unfortunately probably never

      Damn, I forgot marshadow. Well, he’s in there somewhere

      • SpectralSeraph

        HE BETTER BE

        • Ultron

      10. Ya boi Dunsparce

      • Ithsme

        The new pokemon in stars should all be evolutions. Dunsparce and Corsola are a must.

        • SpectralSeraph

          Dunsparce is for a … special reason

          • Ithsme

            Too personal?

          • SpectralSeraph

            I swept an OU team including a mega metagross with six Dunsparces

          • Ithsme

            Oh. DO YOU HAVE THE REPLAY?!!?!

          • SpectralSeraph

            I forgot where XD
            I flinched them to death, I got eight flinches in a row

          • Ithsme

            If you ever find the replay, let me know, I’d LOVE to see that. xD

          • SpectralSeraph

            okay XD

    • SomeGuy

      No particular order:
      Mega Charizard X, Mega Lopunny, Serperior, Palossand, Vanilluxe, Alolan Raichu, Brionne, Steenee, Rayquaza, Hydreigon

    • Pokemania88

      This is all not in order
      Charizard, Skarmory, Heracross, Sceptile, Toxacroak, Mudsdale, Mimikkyu, Garchomp, all the tapus

    • EarthenWarrior

      THEY’RE ALL GIRLY

      • haha lol probably because I’m a girly girl?

  • Ithsme

    My friend is SUPER lucky with shinies.
    He got a shiny in twenty chain encounters a few weeks ago, he got a shiny from WT (probs hacked), a shiny randomly in the wild, another chain shiny in two hours, and he just texted me that he got ANOTHER chain shiny.

    • Damn,he’s lucky as hell.Even I don’t have that much luck,and I’m part Irish.

      • Ithsme

        Same here lol. I had super good luck with a shiny zubat (in 80 encounters) but I’m 1300 into a pikipek with nothing.

    • Ben

      I don’t care if I get hacked Pokémon on WT. As long as I wasn’t the one to hack it.

      • Ithsme

        I could never with a good conscience keep it though. I just trade them away, the best I can do is try to make some kid’s day.

  • Ithsme

    Is stockpile Toxapex worth it? Yay or nay?

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      no, you goint to switch toxapex to regain health anyways

      • Ithsme

        Recover?

        • Regenerator, actually.

          • Ithsme

            No, I mean is stockpile/recover set a good option?

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            n o

          • If you ever need to use Stockpile you probably don’t wanna switch out, but if the ability is Regenerator you’d wanna switch out.

            I would do: Recover, Scald, Toxic Spikes, Baneful/Haze

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            Haze is a must imo, if you dont run Haze, you will be setup bait

          • It’s mostly setup spikes and run though… unless it’s Mega Sableye… :0

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          best set imo:
          Recover
          Scald
          Haze
          Baneful Banker

          Recover + Regenator = you will never die
          Scald for burn
          Haze for nobody to set up
          and Baneful Banker to poison those who could not be burned by scald, plus protect bonus

          • Ithsme

            You think BB is better than Toxic Spikes though?

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            you could play around, i do because some mons I dont need poisoned, i needthem paralyzed or burned

          • Ithsme

            Thanks for the advice! ^_^

  • Ok last list probably. 5 least favorite pokemon
    1. TOUCANNON UHHHGGGGG
    2. Dunsparce
    3. Volcanion
    4. Jynx
    5. Cascoon (bad memories)

    • SpectralSeraph

      1 and 2 are killing me

      • Ithsme

        Same, I love those two.

        • SpectralSeraph

          ;~;

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      jynx? the best pokemon in gen 1

    • Pokemania88

      Bruxish, Jynx, Finneon, Stunfisk, Pineco

      • Pokemania88

        oh and alolan dugtrio. I will never use that thing

      • Uhg, Pineco. Porbalby my number 6

    • Ithsme

      1. Bewear
      2. Bewear
      3. Bewear
      4. Bewear
      5. Bewear

      ALSO WHY FOR NUMBERS 1 AND 2!?!?

      • SpectralSeraph

        Add Incineroar onto that list too

        • Ithsme

          Nothing can surpass my hatred for that. . . thing.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Incineroar is an abomination to all starters, fire, and dark types

          • Ithsme

            Agreed, but Incineroar is still > Bewear.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Not to me… nothing is worse than Incineroar…

          • Ithsme

            To each their own.

          • EarthenWarrior

            what about MY HATRED surly that shatters record

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        you going to see him alot when he becomes OU after tutor returns

        • EarthenWarrior

          i’m gonna run BULK UP HAAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

          • Ithsme

            You. . . you betrayed me!!

          • EarthenWarrior

            Ithsme honey…you’ve known me for how long?

          • Ithsme

            3-4 years actually. Time flies, wow.

            Also don’t call me honey that’s awkward.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Alright snookiepie
            let that rattle in your head

            you’ll lie awake in bed forever mentally scorned

          • Ithsme

            O_0

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            when drain punch becomes available. Bulk Up + Drain Punch would be deadly

        • Ithsme

          Ugh.

        • SpectralSeraph

          I forgot special fire types weren’t a common threat

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            !!!!. Chandelure is the only special fire type that matters (and volcanion but he is a legend so it doesnt count)

          • SpectralSeraph

            With a special stat like that you ain’t gettin far

      • 1. Biggest disappointment of this generation. You had this cute little bird,the best one since Starly, with a great Black, White and Red color scheme and an all around cute, appealing design. Oh! Maybe it could be Grass/Flying or Flying/Steel! It could be something like these
        http://i.imgur.com/PWAuaZ0.jpg
        http://i.imgur.com/so1LazN.jpg
        ya know, intimidating but still cute. But NOPE instead we get a disgusting toucan with a giant beak and tiny eyes that look like it can only see itself in the mirror at all times. It gets Normal/Flying as its type and pretty much no redeeming qualities.

        2. Its just gross and dumb, and needlessly rare, and it doesn’t evolve. Like I would probably like it if it just evolved into something neat like this
        http://img02.deviantart.net/d63b/i/2010/162/6/a/dunsparce_evolution_by_chocolatthunder28.png
        but nope. Just an annoying dex filler that does nothing but irritate me

        • SpectralSeraph

          Use it in anything goes, run six with serene grace choice scarf with headbutt and bite
          Tell me how you feel when it sweeps an OU team

        • Ithsme

          1. Toucans are my favorite animal, so I really love getting to see it pokemon-ified. Never was a fan of pikipek, so I don’t mind the sacrifice.
          2. Yeah, it should evolve, you’re right. But, there’s always hope (I think)!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It requires a mass blood sacrifice to evolve.

    • I don’t really have any least favorites. Because if I don’t like them I tend to forget they even exist…

    • EarthenWarrior

      5 isn’t big enough to compose this list

      • SpectralSeraph

        Is all the Ultra beasts on it?

        • EarthenWarrior

          that’s on volume 6

          • SpectralSeraph

            Does Nihilego get a pass for its fairy killing?

          • EarthenWarrior

            ehhh

          • SpectralSeraph

            Come onnnnnn
            Don’t you love the image of a Nihilego slowly Neurotoxining a Tapu Bulu to death?

          • EarthenWarrior

            it really doesn’t do it for me
            the only likable quality is the sole reason its a rock type but thats where it stops
            also why isn’t it Poison/Psychic?

          • itsmade of glass?


            unique typing?

          • Ithsme

            first poison legendary (eh kinda)?

          • EarthenWarrior

            no, its glass like but a more logical explanation is Mercury which is a clear silvery mineral which is extremely high on the toxicity charts and prolonged exposure causes a plethora of problems (including memory problems)

          • SpectralSeraph

            Hmmmm

          • You have like encyclopedias of all the pokemon you hate and the reason. When you line up all of the volumes up it says “F*ck fairies*

          • line up*

      • Surely you can name 5 that are the worst of the worst..?

    • Ultron

      Omg you need to let toucannon gooooo
      But my list:
      1. Alolan Golem
      2. Alolan Persian
      3. Hypno
      4. Chesnaught
      5. Tympole

    • Definitely one of my least favorite Pokemon are the Mudbray line.I just don’t like the design

      • Ithsme

        3…2…1…

        Here it comes.

      • I thinks its a neat idea and design, just doesnt appeal to me

        • Ok,I can respect that.I just think it’s design looks really bad.

          • Ultron

            It’s a beast in battle though

          • SpectralSeraph

            Your design looks really bad Alex
            (We’re friends IRL, we can be dicks to each other)

          • Yeah,me and Spectral are best buds(not really).Anyways,I think it looks cool,and I guess I can see why you said that.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah we are jackass

          • And that’s what makes us friends.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yes indeed
            (Insert freeze frame)

          • (Insert that one song that goes “And wouldn’t it be nice to live together”

          • SpectralSeraph

            Omg

            Or maybe the friends theme song

          • Or maybe the Seinfeld theme song

          • SpectralSeraph

            No to that

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      you putting toucannon n.1 is literally the pettiest thing ever lol. but yeah
      my lists of flops:
      1. barnickle
      2. chansey, and this one is just for competitive reason only
      3. garbodor
      4. Spinda
      5. sunflora

      • How is it petty? I dislike pretty much every aspect about it

  • Ithsme

    If gyms made a return in stars, which characters do you think will be gym leaders, OTHER THAN TRIAL CAPTAINS (because those are obvious and boring)?

    • I would think maybe Dexio and Sina.I would like to see them as Gym Leaders.

      • Ithsme

        Good idea!

    • Nanu?

      • Ithsme

        It’s a cool idea, but I can’t see it. He says he doesn’t want to do any duties he doesn’t have to (he says he can’t turn down a tapu, so that’s why he’s kahuna).

    • Dicie

      I can honestly hope to see more of Molayne and Ryuki!

      • Ithsme

        Same! I love Molayne!

      • SpectralSeraph

        POKEMON RYUKI VERSION

      • Who is Ryuki? Wow there are characters I just dont even know about huh?

        • Ryuki is a character you fight in a Title Defense battle.His design kinda makes him look like a Gijinka Midnight Lycanroc.I think he looks cool tho.

    • Ithsme

      My guesses are Plumeria, Guzma, and Molayne.

      • Who is Molayne?

        • Dicie

          Postgame, you’ll see! He has a badass outfit

          • Where in the post game?

          • Dicie

            Not sure, since I haven’t gotten that far. I’ve just been spoiling myself xD

          • Ithsme

            No, he’s in game.

          • Dicie

            Really? Only in that title defense thing?

          • Ithsme

            No, he was the previous captain of Mount Hokulani.

          • Ithsme

            Are you mixing up Ryuki and Molayne?

          • Dicie

            Ryuki’s the guy with Dragon-types dressed in red. Considering he wasn’t part of the main story, I assumed he had some role to play in the UB quest or something, but it seems he’s simply a Champion challenger.

          • Ithsme

            Right, but Molayne, the guy in the blue jacket, is in the story.

          • Dicie

            Yeah I know xD

        • Ithsme

          Soffy’s cousin Big Mo.

      • SpectralSeraph

        YOUR BOI

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Hmmmm other than the Captains? that’s a tough one I could definitely see Molayne being a gym leader. and that Ryuki guy from the Champion challengers. Maybe even the Captain for the Dragon trial could be a gym leader. They were never shown so they could show up as a leader rather than a Captain. lol

      • Ithsme

        The captain for the dragon trial is Mina.

        • Dicie

          She’s a Fairy-type user…

          • Ithsme

            I know, but there was no totem for her on poni, and there was no captain for Kommo-o on poni. I’m just connecting the dots.

          • Dicie

            Didn’t Hapu mention something about it being the first trial and no captain appointed to it? Might be wrong on that one. Also Mina stated her trial wasn’t ready yet.

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            I think you’re right. I wanna say Hapu said the Trial Captain was off the island for some reason and thus why they weren’t around to give the trial. And then Mina is such a free spirit that she just doesn’t care enough to set up a proper Trial that she just gives you her crystal.

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          I thought they were technically separate. I think it was said that the Dragon Captain wasn’t anywhere to be seen on the island and then Mina was a captain on her own, but she didn’t have a trial set up. Which is why she just gives you her Z crystal instead of making you do something for her. I think they’re two separate Trials in general.

      • Dicie

        Great minds think alike

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Apparently they do lol

      • I just wanna say that one thing I find…interesting about Ryuki is how his eyes change color depending on his emotion.Like,his overworld model’s eyes are white,battle model’s is yellow,then blue when you defeat him.How does he do that?

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Contacts? Idk……..I actually haven’t re-challenged the league yet so I’m looking forward to seeing him in action. Seems like a cool design. I really do hope we’ll see more of him lol

    • Dicie

      Honestly, I really think those plots serve an alternate purpose. I can’t see Gyms and Trials coexisting… it would be strange and almost redundant considering the League didn’t require any Badges (though it could, but then what good would completing Trials do?) Then again, I can’t think what else they could be for…

      • Ithsme

        My best guess (and personal hope) is that the gyms are built post game, and serve as a post game quest.

        • Dicie

          That would be great, and I pray that the Trial Captains don’t double up as the Gym Leaders. 8 new characters (or ones not in a Captain position) would be great!

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        I’d like to think they would be integrated a bit. Like you have to do some sort of short trial before taking on the gym/gym leader. Maybe each Gym facility itself is a bit more involved and the trial happens in each gym. Something like that would be cool I think

        • Dicie

          That could work. One of Team Skull’s intentions, as stated by Guzma in Malie Garden, was to get rid of all the “old traditions” of Alola, specifically stating Trial Captains and finding no need for a Pokemon League. Maybe another team (Neo-Skull or Eclipse) will share his mentality?

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Yeah and them integrating the Trials and gyms could work as a way of showing that Alola as a culture is making it’s way into the current times while at the same time preserving some of their old traditions. Some old and new mixing in harmony kind of stuff lol

  • Ultron

    Omg why did they give tapu fini aqua ring, how fucking evil of them

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      RIGHT, THAT WAS TOO MUCH

      • Ultron

        I’m trying to catch it in a dive ball and this is just evil

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I had…….zero problem with catching Tapu Fini. Lele was the only one I had a problems with and that was only because I didn’t really go in with a plan of any sort. The rest were relatively easy to say the least. At least for me anyway lol

      • Ultron

        I’m about to go move tutor heal block onto silvally

      • I’ve only caught the first two.Both took extremely long to do so.

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          The Tapu’s are actually relatively bulky as long as you don’t crit and use a move that isn’t crazy effective against them. If you’re Pokemon are reasonably leveled with them then you should be fine. Once you lower their health just paralyze them ore something and it should be a snap as long as you’re using a ball that’s not terrible. lol

      • Good thing my ball this gen is Timer Ball, so I had no plan for Bulu and Lele except “stall/roost with Skarmory” until they go in.

  • Ben

    Hey anybody wanna 6v6??

    • Showdown or in game?

      • Ben

        In game.

        • I would but gotta wait on my pokes to EV train and Magearna and Type:Null to level up all on pokepelago 🙁

          • Ben

            Awww alright :/ Are you trying for level 100?

          • Yep. So much fun

          • Ben

            Gross. With Isle Evelup’s rate that’s gotta take like, what? A week?

          • Too long, thats for sure. I’m just using Isle Evelup so I can get a tiny bit of progress while not playing

    • Singles, Smogon OU?

      • Ben

        Sure!

        • Hey, wait! I was just asking the format. 🙂

          I won’t be available for about 1.5 hours… also my team’s not really ready but I think I can piece together some interesting scraps…

  • EarthenWarrior

    now i feel compelled to list every single pokemon i hate and reason why…..let me see

  • Ithsme

    So I did 63 sessions on Isle Evelup and the stat isn’t fully trainer. What’s wrong?

    • Ithsme

      *trained

    • Ben

      Is the island fully upgraded?

      • Ithsme

        Not when I did that, no. I guess that’s the issue, thanks!

  • EarthenWarrior

    alright i’m still counting but i’ve clocked in at 51 hated pokemon and i haven’t even finished Hoenn region

    • jeez fam, you cant just list every fairy and legendary

    • Ultron

      That’s excessive. You should broaden your interests

      • SpectralSeraph

        For a guy named EARTHen he’s not very inclusive

        • SpectralSeraph

          Eh? Eh?

    • SomeGuy

      Wow. I couldn’t imagine wasting my time with something I hate so much.

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      who wanna make bets? i bet an adamant dewpiper that he will reach 115

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    I think…..I think I might vive up on completing the dex until the Bank opens for SuMo……..It’s such a grind and it almost feels like a waste of my time when I know I have mons to fill the spots just waiting in the bank. *sigh* Shiny hunting will have to officially start in 2017 I suppose. Well at least ti was a good way of training my main mons for a little while. I’m just so tired of having to grind for mons I’ll never use lol

  • EarthenWarrior

    135
    A grand total of 135 pokemon i hate/hate battling/caused me trouble

    • Dicie

      Hmm expected more

      • EarthenWarrior

        look i lost count a few times, one of those self playing ads played and i lost count

        • Dicie

          Gotcha

          • EarthenWarrior

            there’s always room for more

          • Dicie

            Sure is

    • Ok now find a reason to like all of them 😀

      • EarthenWarrior

        no

        • ok I mean I wont do that for Toucannon so why should you

    • Ben

      Only 16%?? Not bad.

    • Ithsme

      Over a whole generation! xD

      • Dicie

        LOL

      • SpectralSeraph

        Wow!!! That’s probably more than most genwunners like!

      • It’d be funny if the total was 151…

    • SomeGuy

      I hate a grand total of 000000000 Pokémon.

      • Ithsme

        I hate really maybe 10.

    • thats 16% of pokemon .o.

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Have you ever considered accepting the idea that you can use Pokemon that don’t all share the same weaknesses? I know you love ground types, but using mons that are good against Fairies and such could be good for your game…..Just saying……lol

      • EarthenWarrior

        that sounds like accepting defeat

        • No its just being open minded

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          You only have yourself to blame then. Don’t hate the game hate the player. lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            i can hate both
            you can’t force them to not use legends and the game made said legends op

        • No, it is being a real competitor and learning to counter the common strategies and using the strongest choices instead of complaining when other people don’t adhere to your self-inflicted handicap.

          • Yeah like, Earthen, you basically broke your own arm in the middle of a game of baseball, insisted you keep playing, then get mad when you struggle to swing the bat

          • EarthenWarrior

            i’ll grip the thing in my damn teeth then lose

          • SpectralSeraph

            What if your teeth broke too and the bat was on fire?

          • EarthenWarrior

            i am a man who’ll die trying
            if i was a videogame boss i’d have like six phases
            1st phase: Twin War Mallets
            2nd: i conjure a huge molten hammer
            3rd; metamorphosis into greater Earth elemental form
            4th: i’d break the floor sending us down a giant chasm and you fight on the fall
            5th: i become engulfed in magma enhancing my form
            6th and Final: with my undying fury i cause a violent eruption to take you down with me

          • SpectralSeraph

            6th is countered by Mudki[ with damp

          • EarthenWarrior

            this is a a volcanic eruption fueled by pure seething rage by a mutated Lava Behemoth
            a tiny kipper would be incinerated

          • It’s an Eruption, not an Explosion. 🙂

            You need Water Sport.

          • Ithsme

            You mean that move everyone forgets by level 12? Earthen’ll win for sure.

          • You might be surprised I am *actually* considering running Water Sport in VGC ’17 because surprise surprise, Torkoal is a b*…

          • SpectralSeraph

            Araquanid boi
            Water bubble

  • Ithsme

    Togekiss w/ Kings Rock
    Dazzling Gleam
    Thunder Wave
    Air Slash

    Ancient Power, Nasty Plot, or Roost?

    • Dicie

      Neither. Scrap it and get a Dedenne instead.

      • Ithsme

        Horrible idea.

        • Dicie

          Respected.





          DEDENNE OR RIOT

          • Ithsme

            Lillie Bonnie: Get back in the bag Nebby Dedenne!

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      aura sphere!
      dont let be walled by steel types bro

      • Ithsme

        For dazzling gleam?

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          no, go 252 HP 252 SpA.
          Aura Sphere
          Dazzling Gleam
          Air Slash
          T-Wave

          • Ithsme

            That’s what I ran last gen, and it worked fairly well. Oh well, same thing I guess.

            After I took 3 hours to breed nasty plot onto it… I might have two togekiss this gen then, why not?

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            if you wanna run NP, you could run HP and defenses ev with a little in SpA. Drop Dazzling Gl.

          • Ithsme

            I’ll just make two. Thanks again for the advice!

        • IMO yes. Since you’re not running Leftovers you must have Roost.

          • Ithsme

            Paraflinch is amazing. 😉

          • EarthenWarrior

            it needs to be banned
            I’d rather it have…..well i was gonna say gale wings but that’s disabled the moment it takes a scrape

          • Ithsme

            Statuses are kinda my signature thing lol.

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            status are fun! unless used against you

          • Ithsme

            Watching your opponent crumble as you sit back. . .
            That’s the best feeling in a battle for sure.

    • Ancient Power is good when you are unsure what to do next. It can kick off a sweep if you land the stat boost

      Nasty Plot is ehh since its so slow

      Roost is really good

  • Ultron

    Next feature GF needs to fucking remove: pokeball shaking three times and it popping out. JUST MAKE IT TWO.

    • I freaking hate that.You just feel it in your soul,bro.

      • Ultron

        A little part of me dies and there’s only so much humanity I have left within this near-hollow husk I call a body.

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Also they need to stop having characters say the word “yeah” at the end of every sentence….It’s annoying when Kukui says it and it’s annoying when every other character says it now lol

  • Ben

    Festival Plaza may be a step down from PSS, but one thing remains the same: finding a passerby to battle with you is a miserable process…

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      i could battle you in singles if you wanna

      • Ben

        Sweet! What’s your FC? Mine is 3737-9521-9386. IGN Animated Guy

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          • Ben

            I’ll add you now!

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            i send you the request

      • Excellent, you two fight first while I get ready later when it’s lunch break at this job.

  • aaaaaaaaahhhhhh

    • Ben

      One of my favorite in-game tracks. Reminds me a bit of “Love Like You” from SU.

      • So many SU fans here on PJN… 🙂

        I used to be a fan, then I realized I didn’t care about the gem war and was only interested in Connie. 🙂

        • I can just give you a list of Connie episodes if ya want lol

          • Thanks, though I already have the list. 🙂

        • Ithsme

          I’m ONLY a fan of the actual gem story. The filler episodes are super boring.

          • We’re the opposite then, but that’s fair, and it’s better to be interested in the main thing a show is about than random side plots… 🙂

          • Ithsme

            It’s too bad barely ever get serious plot progression.

          • I think they are super cute and build the world super well. The gem story wouldnt be as good without the character growth from the slower episodes

          • Ithsme

            True, character development is crucial, but the story is super good and leaves me wanting more, so it sucks to have to wait forever for major story events.

          • I guess its a better show to binge watch than to wait weekly for. Thats why the Summer of Steven was great to me

          • Ithsme

            Same, that was worth the wait.

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Problem is that you don’t feel like stuff is actually happening in the world of the story if you don’t have any down time. It’s a hard pill to swallow lol

        • Ben

          I love it for the songs, as well as all the flashbacks with Greg. Greg and Peridot are my favorite characters 🙂

          • Ben

            Such an underrated song. I covered this one on YouTube!

          • Greg’s VA may not be as good as Deedee Mango Hall or Estelle but he is still great and all of his songs are always underrated and awesome. If every porkchop were perfect….

          • Ben

            We wouldn’t have hot dogs! Yes Deedee is fantastic. “It’s Over Isn’t It?” is one of the best songs I’ve heard all year.

          • Mr. Greg deserves an Emmy for real

            also Lapis needs a song come on where is my favorite depressed farm lesbian’s song seriously

          • Green

            “Gal Pals”

          • Ooh,I love this song.It’s actually my favorite flashback song.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Still gotta finish Obsidian

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          I wish there was an easier way to catch up on those kinds of shows. I feel like there’s so many episodes that if I had just watched it in passing/when it aired I’d be fine with watching, but when I try to sit down and watch a bunch in a row I just want to get to the interesting episodes where story is moved a long…….Quite the drag as I see the appeal of SU…lol

          • Why don’t you skip then? Like I did, I only watch episodes if Connie is in it… <3

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            But then I feel like I missed something. It’d be like if you skipped all the days in your life that nothing “important” happened. Sure you could still get the gist of what’s happening, but something would be missing lol

          • I have a different stance on that. I’d compare it to an “any % speedrun”, just go to the end as fast as possible…

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Eh I just don’t feel right doing that, but to each his/her own I guess lol

          • Yeah. Too bad I didn’t like the gem war… but other people dislike the slice of life episodes. 🙂

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Slice of life eps can be fine, but the characters need to do something the viewer can get into. It’s hard to cherry pick when you don’t know whats happening around the characters lol

          • I realized early I didn’t enjoy the gem war, but I toughed it up to Jailbreak… 🙂

      • It has that jazzy feel for sure.

        Side note: Love Like You is my favorite song ever honestly

        • Ben

          Such a good song. Too bad there’s never been an official full version released. Like, complete with all the instrumental bits and ending. I know some fans have made decent splices on YT but still.

          • I relate to it so much too. Its just so gooood

          • Oh and Here Comes a Thought

            seriously that song does so much to calm me down when I’m stressed or just not okay in general

          • Plus,it was animated by Studio Trigger,and they worked on Kill La Kill

          • It shows because the fight scene with Stevonnie and Holo-Pearl was incredible

      • EarthenWarrior

        ……GOD DAMN IT THAT SONG ALWAYS FUCKING BRINGS TEARS TO MY EYES

    • Ithsme

      Favorite night track for sure.

  • Green

    So apparently “new Pokémon” have been announced for the 12th. Whether this is gen 2 or The Legendary Pokemon of gen 1, I don’t know.

    • Gen 2 is the only way they can spark a tiny bit of hype so probably that

      • Green

        Yeah that’s what I’m hoping for. I need Mantine and Ledyba

    • SpectralSeraph

      ITS THE RARE POKEMON OF GEN 2 NO ONE KNEW ABOUT XD
      THE LEAKS!

      • GUYS SEADRA EVOLVES OMG

        • Finally, I have stockpiled candies just for this moment…

        • Ithsme

          Slowpoke would have been MUCH more appropriate. Missed oppurtunity.

        • Green

          That’s what half of the Pokémon GO players will be like

      • Green

        Lol. My friend who has never played an actual Pokémon games before is like this religious GO player. It really gets on my nerves sometimes when he tries to use terms like IV and EV while playing it.

        • You should blow his mind with your perfect IV competitive mons

          • Green

            So on Fridays, I take my DS to school and I was showing him what an IV actually is by reking some 6th graders. He uses the terms tho.

          • Green

            *my

        • IVs exist in GO, not EVs though…

    • Ithsme

      I really misinterpreted that, and thought you meant the January 12th NX event, and got super hyped.

      Then I realized it was just a bag of trash lol.

    • Let us welcome our new Tyranitar overlords…

  • EarthenWarrior

    so does anybody follow Death Battle?

    • I do.I’m excited about Deadpool Vs Pinkie Pie.

      • EarthenWarrior

        omg yes
        i want to see if they actually make her win, just to watch the shit storm

        • You know she will

          • EarthenWarrior

            well she’s zany, extremely skilled in breaking the forth wall, possesses a degree of super speed, a party cannon, and has mild above average strength. she might be able to “out-weird” Deadpool’s skill and insanity and trap him in a corner

        • SpectralSeraph

          I doubt it, you need to kiss your fanbase’s ass in order to make sure you don’t lose them

          • EarthenWarrior

            what?

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            boi, they made goku lose they dont care

          • EarthenWarrior

            its Superman
            its pitting something that is virtually limitless with something with limits

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            i was team superman

          • EarthenWarrior

            me too, but god what a great episode
            I mean its just legendary

          • Yeah,but which fanbase will they go for?That’s the question.

          • EarthenWarrior

            well lets anaylis
            in Starscream V rainbow Dash: it boiled down to competence versus incompetence where Starscream is literally the worst Decepticon ever
            Deadpool v Deathstroke, Deadpool won (via cheating) by using the Carbonadium Sword to nullify Deathstroke’s Healing factor
            BUT in the One Minute Melee rematch Deathstroke won by hacking DP to pieces
            so i gotta say 60-40

          • Hey,that’s what Deadpool does best after all.He breaks all the rules and makes it hilarious.

  • SomeGuy

    Does anyone play Animal Crossing: Wild World on the Wii U virtual console? The idea of playing an older Animal Crossing, rather than the most recent, always seemed like such an odd idea. Plus to play a handheld release on the Wii U? It’s hard explain my thoughts on how surreal of an experience that sounds like. Like you’d be living in a hidden town everyone forgot existed.

    • EarthenWarrior

      i want Animal Crossing VR

      • SomeGuy

        lol… Yea I’d be pretty down for that

      • I want Pokemon Crossing

        • EarthenWarrior

          not ever a thing, just play Tomadachi Life and make all the Miis Pokemon trainers

          • SpectralSeraph

            BOOM

  • Ithsme

    Another day, another dissapointment. I’m out for the night, bye!
    Pikipek count: ~1500

    • Aw, hopefully you’ll have better luck later/tomorrow…

  • Eartheeeennnnn I really like Paper Mario so far. I’m still early into it and I’m progressing slowly but its super neat

    • SomeGuy

      Paper Mario defined a large portion of my childhood

      • EarthenWarrior

        it is my life

      • Green

        Super Paper Mario was the best imo. The Williams, the sort line, the overall concept was just really good

        • SomeGuy

          Eh I think it’s better than Stick Star (haven’t played the Wii U one yet) but for me it’s:
          64 > TTYD > Super > SS

    • EarthenWarrior

      Girlfriend dish were you at….you’re a girl right?

      • yes I am a human being of the female variety 😛

        I just got to the Koopa Village. I got set back a tiny bit because I died on the way back to the village and didnt save until before I met the blue koopa

        • EarthenWarrior

          KOOPER IS MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITE
          Kooper is by far one of the most powerful members to use because of his ability to damage everybody

          also might i ask what are you investing level ups into, since i’m a hyper legend veteran i invest in BP and FB so i can crush everything

          • Well idk if I’m doing somethng wrong because I’ve only leveled up once. I invested into the third one? I cant remember exactly what it was called

          • lol I need to pay more attention to this game 😛

          • EarthenWarrior

            every detail
            i don’t want to brag but i think i know where everything and how to get it
            minus some Badges and Star Pieces

            speaking of which collect as many Star pieces as possible because at Shooting Star Summit’s base you can trade them to Merlow for badges and the two ones to really aim for is called Peekaboo for 10 which allows you to see the enemies health meter at all times and the best one for a whopping 25 Power Plus which increases Mario’s damage by one

    I must part. Good night.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Goodbye my friend!

    GG Carbinkle! Sorry for the Porygon sweep xD

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      is okay, my team is not competitive so terrible ivs lol

        I was gonna say, I can’t believe I survived that Liquidation!

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          yep! my mons cannot hit hard but surprisily they can survive hits

  • Green

    Oh wait. One more question before I go.
    Is shiny Minior the black core with colorffil triangles?

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      yas

      • Green

        When I saw it on a video I was like “Oh shit! This is way better than Green Minior core! I should get this one!” Then I realized it might be a shiny. Thabjs for clarifying

        • Green

          *Thanks

    Pardon my many typing mistakes in comments below.

          • Green

            No please

            Okay. Everyway I put it, it can be ruined.

      • towelgirl21

        Saw an Incineroar on YouTube named “Ric Flare”

    • Green

      Ooh ooh! I know where curly brace is from! (maybe)

      • Green

        She’s from Cave Story right?

        • Yep! One of my favorite games ever

          • Green

            So I’ve heard

          • like
            1. Earthbound
            2. Undertale
            3. Cave Story
            4. Pokemon
            5. Zelda Wind Waker/To The Moon/Life is Strange

          • Green

            But you’re right. Magearna dies remind me of Curly Brace

          • I named my Furfrou in Y version Mimiga 😛

          • SpectralSeraph

            Magearna dies?

          • If you dont get the tow rope and take the jet pack she sure does

          • SpectralSeraph

            Wait what

          • In Cave Story, you can only get the best ending (also the hardest level in any game I’ve ever played) if you pick up a tow rope item that’s just placed in this random little spot where you would never look and by ignoring a character who falls down a pit and seemsto die before giving you a jetpack. If you ignore him, he later meets uo with you recovered and gives you a better version that o required to get the best ending

          • Green

            Does

      • So you also know where Malco is from!

    • Ben

      Porygon-Z – Cydia (anyone who’s ever hacked an iOS device will know)
      Minior – Wonder Ball
      Kartana – Kraftwerk
      Pyukumuku – Loofah

      • lol Cydia is great

        • Ben

          I’m thinking of breeding a competitive, Scrappy Miltank and giving it the dumbest nickname possible: “Cow-a-bunga!”

      • towelgirl21

        Wonder Ball is great!
        That’s what I thought of whenever I found them.

    • Ultron

      Azula for Salazzle 😀
      Nymeria for Lycanroc midday

      Probs about it

    • SomeGuy

      Nihilego – White Russian (its name is like nihilist. A famous movie quote from The Big Lebowski is “We are nihilists Lebowski, we believe in nothing.” They drink white russians [a type of mixed drink] in that movie. Also Nihilego is white. BAM)

    • Araquanid – Metroid
      Mimikyu – Masquerade
      Golisopod – Hydralisk
      Oranguru – Coach

      • SpectralSeraph

        Araquanid is Bubble Buddy

        • That is a great nickname for Araquanid, though Sudowoodo actually looks more like “the” Bubble Buddy…

          • SpectralSeraph

            True true

    • towelgirl21

      Mimikyu – PurgePikachu
      Incineroar – Riot

      Salandit – Durag
      Rattata – Snidely
      Primarina – Zoolander (male)
      Primarina – Andre (thinking of the movie and Andre Bocelli)

      I had a wrestler theme for some of them

  • Green

    Ok. I’m leaving for real this time. I don’t want to talk about the position in which I’m lying down anymore.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Night breh!
      Remember
      Position is key! Nothing Over seventy, but stick to the sixties

      • Green

        I’m gonna sit in the corner and rethink my life choices

        • SpectralSeraph

          Don’t go there unless you got an escape route!

          • Green

            My room is small. I think I can find my way out.

          • The room will only get smaller the longer you’re in there

          • Green

            Ok. I’m done. Good night.

          • Green

            *Gets lost*
            I saw those team skull guys so I tried to stay away from them and got lost

            YOU FOUND MY BRETHREN!

  • EarthenWarrior
    • SpectralSeraph

      You mean PU trash?

      • EarthenWarrior

        shut up and watch the video

      • You could say its..

        PUtrid!

        • Ben

          Ohhh! Blast BURNNN!

        • SpectralSeraph

          You mean
          PUrely PUtrid

          Its
          Niche
          Consists of being of absolutely no
          Importance and is
          Not needed whatsoever and
          Even a majority of its own fanbase
          Realizes that it is a complete shit mon
          Of the lowest quality
          And realizes now that boxing this
          Rancid-ass cat is the only logical decision if you picked it

    • Ben

      Virus was one of the best sbemails of all time.

  • Golden_Monferno

    Has anyone got a Gen 7 Pokemon that’s really starting to grow on them? Because Araquanid and Alolan Sandslash are becoming one of my favorite Pokemon.

    • Magearna. I adore it

      • Golden_Monferno

        It’s got some pretty great stats, and the best defensive typing in the game. Also, it was a clever approach to it possessing the ability to turn into a Poke Ball.

        • My only disappointment with it is that there is no special pokeball you get it in that is just the Magearna itself

    • Ben

      Bewear is growing on me a lot. It looks like a Beanie Baby.

    • Ultron

      Alolan Raichu grew on me a lot when Hau used it against me. Palossand a tiny bit.

      • Golden_Monferno

        I remember back on when I first got to Ula Ula Island, his Raichu wrecked half of my team. Also, his Raichu took care of most of the work in the 2nd Faba battle too. The thing’s a beast at speed and special attack…

        • Ultron

          I know, right?? I can get over the stupid origin for it

          • Golden_Monferno

            True, the raw speed and power makes up for that so much…

        • I completely destroyed his team at that point and I was left disappointed 🙁

          • Ultron

            I didn’t have a ground type and when I switched into ribombee it one-shotted it with psychic 🙁

          • Golden_Monferno

            Really? That Raichu was so strong.

    • SpectralSeraph

      ARAQUANIIIID

    • Exeledus

      I bred a perfect IV competitive araquanid for my singles dual weather team. I don’t have a choice band for him yet though, but I grinding up the BP to get one!

  • EarthenWarrior

    well i’m gonna go to bed
    but before i do, i need a Fanta

    • Ben

      Shoulda hadda V8

      • EarthenWarrior

        gross,

        • Ben

          Do they even make V8 anymore? They really are quite disgusting.

          • EarthenWarrior

            i think they do, i rather ruin my kidneys with flavor then drink that schlop

          • Exeledus

            this man gets it. this man right here.

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    Apparently both Reggie and Miyamoto are gonna be on the Tonight Show on NBC tonight. Might tune in, but at the same time I’m kind of tired…..idk….lol

    • SomeGuy

      It’ll be up on YouTube later anyway. But I do love Jimmy Fallon.

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        I used to watch Fallon all the time, but as things went on I watched less and less due to wanting to go to bed. I guess I’m just getting old lol Anyway I like watching his beginning stuff the most. Find that way more entertaining than the interviews unless the person he has on is SUPER interesting to me lol

        • SomeGuy

          I’m so against watching television at specific air times that I literally don’t even know what channel anything is anymore. If I can’t watch it online somewhere it just doesn’t get watched.

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            That seems a bit ridiculous hahaha

    • Green

      Yessssssss

  • Serenotic

    Mimikyu for the love of Arceus… If you don’t appear as a shiny. I will hunt you down with curse-proof stuff and de-pikachu you in front of a crowd. I’m well over 500 eggs at this point. Sigh.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Uhhhhh that might cause mass murder…
      DO IT 😀

      • Serenotic

        Good. Let the people of Alola fear my all-consuming ire.

    • Exeledus

      500 eggs? I have a shiny charm and used the masuda method and hatched about 1500 beldum, 12 perfect IV beldum, and 30 5IV beldum sitting in my box, not counting the hundreds of 5IV beldum I traded or just released because I didn’t feel like storing them. no shiny…

    • temporario23

      Dude, I had to hatch nearly 2700 eggs to get my shiny.

  • Jp

    I’m confused. In Pokémon s and m . We can’t trade via friend codes anymore? Is the online thing not the same and x and y??

    • Yes we can. Add your friend codes on the 3DS as usual. Then go to festival plaza, click the “wifi” icon to go online, then click Trade -> Link Trade.

  • Jp

    Thanks

  • Ben

    Amazing how I can do so well in single 6v6 battles and then suck so hard at VGC 3v3.

    Also interesting how, once I got below 1500 on the ladder, I started seeing fun, interesting teams.

    • Below, because above it is serious mode, I’m guessing?

      • Ben

        But why must serious = the same basic 15-20 sets? Even so, though, I can usually take on those big threats with obscure Pokémon if I’m playing 6v6. I guess, in 3v3, every one of your Pokémon has to be an OP Beast.

        • 3v3 also lends itself well to gimmicks since there’s a 50% chance the opponent won’t have their counter…

          6v6 feels more like a team game.

          • Ben

            Totally agree with this ^

    • SomeGuy

      Because those fun, interesting teams don’t win consistently. I think it’s weird how only in deck/team building games to people complain about and shame others for trying to win. The point in the competitive sport is to win. Many people find it fun to try and find the most consistently winning team and figuring out how to play that team well. Others want to win but they want to be handed the win for being “creative” (aka using their favorites)

  • AAAHHH GUYS WE HAVE A SITUATION CODE 1510 NINTENDO SWITCH AT 4:30

    https://youtu.be/7TJ7IUNWGl4

    LOOK AT THAT FRAME RATE ITS GOOD… HOW DID THEY DO THIS HOW DID THEY FIT 60 FPS INTO THAT TINY THING

    • Ben

      GameXplain is gonna be ALLL over this.

      It looks amazing

    • This is the kind of demo I like. Not them canned ubisoft or EA conference demos.

      You can see the guy playing the thing and actually moving them sticks around and making things happen…

      Jimmy might be the real thing. He’s shaking during his playthrough of BOTW…

      • SomeGuy

        Oh he’s the real deal. Every time I watch his show it seems Nintendo or video games in general get brought up at some point. A couple years back I remember his having Michael Cera on and they went back and forth about the rounds of Mario Kart 8 they played together before the show.

    • SomeGuy

      This is why I love Jimmy Fallon. He legitimately gets so excited over Nintendo stuff. This was such fantastic advertising for Nintendo!

    • Photobomb EastGovnah

      looks really good!

    • SpectralSeraph

      Yoooooooooooo!

    • Pokemania88

      Jimmy Fallon, you bloody legend.

  • Traded Pink Gumshoos for Celesteela, worth.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      But couldn’t you just have traded a spare UB for it?

      • Because UBs are more valuable than non-competitive shinies

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Oh OK.

  • Phantom S

    I finally beat the game, and it told the story of Lillie, after all. I’m really happy with this, but leaving Nebby is the most stupid thing GameFreak did in SuMo.

    • Well it’s not our fault we are left with that unwanted baggage…

      I wish we had the option to return it to its rightful owner.

  • Prashanth Raghuram

    I SRed for the first time in my life for about ten times to get a female Rowlet so I could name her Hedwig. Decidueye’s ghost typing is especially relevant here. :'(
    Lycanroc midnight form is Lupin.
    Cutiefly is navii
    Dewpider is Aragog
    Alolan raichu is Alphys

    • I approve of these nicknames

      • Prashanth Raghuram

        Oh and I caught a female sandygast soon to be palossand and I named it Hogwarts ^_^

    • Haxford

      My Decidueye is called Hedwig too 🙂

      • Prashanth Raghuram

        Yeah… For me decidueye is Hedwig reincarnated

  • EarthenWarrior

    I started with a respectable 1.3k rating
    I’m now down to the low 0.7…..

  • SpectralSeraph

    Why is Pyukumuku actually my spirit animal?

    • Because you spit your organs out as a way of self defense then go to the fridge, eat everything, and not move until someone physically moves you?

      • SpectralSeraph

        I actually sit in front of the fridge unable to move so I starve

  • Uhg, I dread having to grind my Pokémons levels up like crazy when I get home. Ludum Dare starts tomorrow though so that’s neat

  • EarthenWarrior

    I swear Bewear becomes more crazy every episode

  • Haxford

    I finished the main storyline of SM and oh my god this is the best gen yet. The story is so great compared to the other gens and I loved every single bit. Lusamine is such a great character and I loved her interaction with Lillie and Gladion, which are some of my favorite characters of gen 7 too. I found the captain of Poni Island such a lazy attempt to do something different, but well, she’s one of the most minor characters, so I guess that’s fine. Guzma was really great too, and I loved Hau. The E4 was pretty hard as well, harder than usual. I liked how they used recurring characters. I just wanted Kahili to be someone else, she came out of nowhere (like most E4 trainers, but oh well). I wanted a main Flying type male character unlike Falkner. Overall such a great game, this definitely was even better than my prior favorite gen (gen 4). Now I’ll stop boring you with my thoughts. <3

    • SomeGuy

      Really is so fantastic.

    • That captain will be back… it’s not the last of her… just you wait…

    • towelgirl21

      I liked Team Skull a lot. They were funny, but also sad. There was that one scene where two guys were attacking a bus stop… so much frustration on their part.

      I didn’t really understand Guzma’s reason for going with Lusamine though.

      • SpectralSeraph

        There’s a very good reason, just requires a bit of digging

        • towelgirl21

          I mean, I get that he wanted to be strong, and his family was mean or too strict with him… but going to another dimension with some scientist woman possessed by a space jellyfish seems kind of weird. Being a cruel gang leader I can understand. Ultra Wormhole has me drawing a blank though.

          • As a failed Trial Captain, Guzma thought Lusamine was the first person who was respecting his strength. Later he realizes he’s wrong and she’s just using him.

          • towelgirl21

            Okay, that makes sense. I’d forgotten (was kind of sick that day)

  • Haxford

    Oh the one thing I hate is that I can’t use Silvally since it’s my favorite Pokémon this gen, but I’m glad I got to use Decidueye and Drampa, such great designs.

    • I still felt great using Silvally in the postgame. 🙂

      I befriended the one I got and then followed in Gladion’s footsteps and won the Master Battle Royal with it.

      • towelgirl21

        I’m still trying to figure out where to get it.

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Gladion is in the Aether paradise’s garden. Get it from him

          • towelgirl21

            thanks

  • EarthenWarrior
  • oceanics

    I’ve officially finished the main story in Moon, and WOW, the last time I was this impressed with a game was in Gen 5 lol. The story, the difficulty, and everything in between was done so well, I have almost nothing to complain about. I do wish a few Pokémon were available a little earlier, and I wish we hadn’t gotten so few regular (as in non-legendary) Pokémon this gen, but that is usually the case with most of the games anyway.

    Updated Ranking of Generations:
    B/W,B2/W2
    SM
    GS
    DPPt
    RSE
    RBY
    XY

    • towelgirl21

      Yeah, I wanted a Jangmo-o to raise from a low-ish level, even if I had to hunt for it like the much-sought after Bagon. By the time they show up, they evolve right away. Something like in HeartGold where I wanted a Larvitar (which show up low-level late in the game) but I managed to snag one early in the Safari Zone. Still mad about Houndour (only in Kanto? Really?)

      That’s why I traded for a Drampa and bred it in this game till I got one I liked that I could name myself. Ironically, he’s the youngest member of my team.

      • oceanics

        Yes, this exactly! Houndour, a Johto-native Pokémon, only being found in Kanto has always been one of my biggest pet peeves. I never understood that.

  • towelgirl21

    So when I went through Poni Island and finally reached the Battle Tree with half my Pokemon fainted and most weak HOPING for a Pokemon Center I was dismayed when and Red and Blue met me instead. Blue immediately challenged me to a battle before I could heal up and I remembered: he hasn’t changed a bit, the jerk. He almost beat me, but fortunately my Incineroar loved me enough to withstand a KO and his Arcanine fainted itself with a Flare Blitz.

    I had to laugh. THAT’s the vintage Red / Blue stuff there, not them being there.

  • TheXmasMonster6893

    Decided to update my Bewear avatar a little bit with something more festive. Tis the holidays and I figured Bewear could use a scarf, hot chocolate, and a snowman friend lol

  • Chaos

    Toxapex was the most used Pokemon on Showdown last month. Followed by Alolan Marrowack.

    The rest of the top 10 are just UBs and Tapus.

    • Just as planned. (direct link to table)

    • Exeledus

      yet ive been destroying those on battle spot with a team of pokemon no ones using. alolan marowak gets eaten by my goodra, Metagross vs tapus = GG, bewear tanks UB hits, especially behind the aurora veil set up by ninetails, and speaking of which, the great and terrifying tapu bulu hates 100% accurate Hail boosted Blizzards. Fairy/Dragon/Steel is a solid core this gen with all these guys on everyones teams. I’m running dual weather, and its insane how hard Araquanid hits with liquidation and choice band and water bubble in the rain.

      • Ah, so the Fantasy Core is back… <3

      • Chaos

        Goodra vs Marowack I can’t say much but sounds like hit and miss. Marowack with Thick Club hits Goodra quite hard on its weaker defensive side.
        Metagross does well against Bulu and Lele, but doesn’t Koko beat it? and I can’t imagine it enjoys switching onto Tapu Fini repeatedly.

        Anyway Battle Spot is 3v3 (unless this has changed). The 6v6 singles is quite a different game.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    My god, Tapu Bulu would have been an immense sustained tank if it wasn’t for the Grass/Fairy typing. Just too many weaknesses imo

    • Chaos

      Lack of useable Fairy moves and the fact that Mono Grass is resisted by so many types doesn’t help at all.

      Fire, Poison, Bug, Flying, Grass, Dragon, Steel all resist Grass

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Yep yep because free Grassy Terrain plus Horn Leech and Leech Seed. Also its some kind of bull but doesn’t have Earthquake or High Horsepower. Another potentially great Pokemon fairly ruined by GF imo

        • Chaos

          I mean it has decent coverage options in Superpower and Stone Edge but for some reason it’s really underwhelming imo. It seriously needed something like Play Rough to be a serious threat.

          But I still love Bulu. By far my favourite Tapu, followed closely by Lele which is just beastly under Psycich Terrain

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Koko is my favorite because its an Electric type and they always go first with me. Bulu comes second because I love its design more than the other two. But seriously GF totally ruined it imo. They should have made it either Grass/Ground or preferably Ground/Fairy

          • Chaos

            I agree. Like I said before (and I got ripped on for hating on Fairies :p). They didn’t all need to be Fairy Type, they could have done much more creative stuff.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Pure Ground imo or Ground/Fighting would have be a good fit too. Really hope they’ll tone it down on the fairies in gen 8.

          • EarthenWarrior

            -_- I better get my Ground/Fighting in gen 8…

          • It’ll be legendary. And you will use it.

      • EarthenWarrior

        To hell with usable Fairy Moves
        The damn thing only needs to set leech seed and spam Horn Leech then it get a free boosted damage and two recoveries
        It NEEDS TO DIE

        • Chaos

          You sound mad…

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’m always mad

          • Chaos

            You need a chill pill. Or some of that Tapu Fini magic.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I honestly can’t anymore
            Just I am in a constant state of “rod up my butt” literally everything in my life sucks Mudbray balls and things are only going to get worse

          • I’m also always angry. I just channel it better…

    • EarthenWarrior

      It and everyone of its kind must die!

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Don’t even Bewear is great lol

        • EarthenWarrior

          I wasn’t talking about the damn rape bear

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            Ugh….I’m sorry I had a brain fart….Was still thinking about my avatar hahaha Even still I like Bulu a lot too! lol

          • Exeledus

            we don’t speak ill of bewear in these parts.

          • EarthenWarrior

            All I have to do is hold it to a open flame

          • Exeledus

            that’s actually kinda not true. my bewear tanks fire hits thanks to assault vest. if they are physical then it doesn’t even matter, he eats them up naturally.

          • EarthenWarrior

            hmmm wait a sec
            Refresh my memory but didn’t you say u had Ice Punch Stuffuls?

          • Exeledus

            yep, adamant ice punch stufful. I didn’t IV breed them at that point, but I still have them.

          • EarthenWarrior

            How though…

          • Exeledus

            have crabominable learn ice punch, delete the rest of its moves. get a male smeargle. fight a wild ditto with crabominable, and have smeargle sketch the ice punch, then breed it with a female stufful.

    • TB is pretty good. I don’t think it needs more than it already has…

      (If it had Rock Polish though… it’d be almost unstoppable.)

  • EarthenWarrior

    Nyarghhhhhh

    Ughhhhh this sucks, nearly every other type gets plenty of types to work with but Ground gets the raw deal (Dark and Ice got screwed but they got decent Alolan Forms)

    • You really don’t intend to use older gen mons, right? There’s some you can pad that with…

      • EarthenWarrior

        IVE USED THEM ALL ALREADY

        • Photobomb EastGovnah

          well your in a bit of a pickle

          • EarthenWarrior

            Every ground type revealed I’ve used (Minus Pallossand and Ground Sivally (or Arceus for that matter)

        • Use them again to pad your team?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      All I can suggest is use Alolan forms of Pokémon that were Ground type and give them a Ground Type move each.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Then that’s just a mixed team and that ain’t gonna fly

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Then either use what you’ve used before or Only use those 3 .

    • TCRowlet

      Are you against using 10% Zygarde in an in-game playthrough? That could be another 🙂

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Wow the Switch runs Breath of the Wild in 1080p and a solid 60fps. Meanwhile XB1 and PS4 IPs can’t even maintain 30 fps lol. Nintendo beating them again after 6 years of falling behind.

    • Photobomb EastGovnah

      Nintendo is gonna come back on top!

      • Exeledus

        here hoping. I’m psyched to hear rumors of FROM software making dark souls trilogy for it.

  • I bought a set of picture books just so I can have this on my table every day…

  • Exeledus

    freaking battle tree…
    the opposing dugtrio used substitute!
    Bewear used Façade! Bewears attack missed!
    Dugtrio used Fissure! Its a 1 hit KO!
    You can do it, Goodra!
    Dugtrio used Fissure! Its a 1 hit KO!
    You can do it, Metagross!
    Dugtrio used Fissure! Its a 1- hit KO!
    -_-;

    • I know the pain. All too well. *patpats*

      • Exeledus

        I had just finished my team and I was at a 32 win streak at this point… the BP gain was nice.

        • I wouldn’t be happy until I reach 50, I think I’ll do doubles first because I’ve got my Oranguru + Torkoal team almost ready. (Currently breeding the latter now.)

          • Exeledus

            I’m going back in soon. I need to test my araquanid a bit, see the opportune times to bring it in and test its utility.

        • Grats on reaching 32 though.

  • So someone posted a bulky pivot set for Decidueye at some point… anyone got it? I only remember it having Defog…

  • CoolGlaceon

    Wait the Macho Brace is unobtainable in SM?

    • Yeah it isn’t there, but it was always outclassed by the Power items anyway…

      I could’ve used it to fine tune EV spread though.

    • Chaos

      Macho Brace is outdated now

  • Spetsnaz

    best nature for magearna?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Calm or Modest.

  • Exeledus

    uh battle tree standard doubles…? what are you doing?
    the opposing darmanitan used Will-o-wisp!
    Araquanid’s Water Bubble!
    -next turn
    Darmanitan unleashes its Z-Power! Z Will-o-Wisp!
    Araquanid’s Water Bubble!

  • Cosimo

    So, what’s everyone’s teams in Sun and Moon, and what are your character’s names and where are you in the games?

    Jeff (Sun): Currently about to face the Kiawe trial
    Dartrix
    Lycanroc
    Trumbeak
    Crabrawler
    Salandit
    Whishiwashi

    Cosimo (Moon): Just finished the Kiawe trial
    Torracat (MY FAVORITE STARTER LINE!!!)
    Crabrawler
    Lycaron
    Fomantis
    Trumbeak
    Wishiwashi

    • Exeledus

      beaten almost 2 weeks ago is my current point in the games.
      Edea (moon)
      Primarina
      Bewear
      Tsareena
      Drampa
      Lycanroc (midday)
      Salazzle

      • Cosimo

        How do you like Drampa?

        • Exeledus

          hes slow, but pretty tanky and hits really hard, especially after a berserk boost. he also has a HUGE movepool.

          • Cosimo

            Maybe I’ll have to put him in. He was originally on one of my teams but as they released more Pokemon he faded out… And Kommo-o was on my team until the day before it was released then I kind of dropped it… It didn’t work with my teams… and I saw the move pool it had and I wasn’t impressed.

    • I’m in postgame so I’ll just list the team I used to defeat the final boss with.

      Pandora (sun)
      Primarina
      A. Persian
      Magnezone
      Snorlax
      Alakazam Decidueye
      Araquanid

    • DefensiveBastiodon

      Mine was Decidueye, Lycanroc/Solgaleo, Wishiwashi, A. Golem, Araquanid, and Shiinotic.

    • Phantom S

      Just beat the game.

      Saulo (Sun)
      – Dante, the Incineroar
      – Tina, the Toucanon
      – Jacob, the Crabominable
      – Gellert, the midday Lycanroc
      – Credence, the Wishiwashi
      – Queenie, the Tsareena

      Gellert will be replaced by Nebby, the Solgaleo.

      • Cosimo

        I cannot wait for my Crabralwer to evolve into Crabominable! Is it totally awesome and the best Pokemon ever?

  • Exeledus

    doubles lags so hard in the battle tree I feel like my 3ds is about to combust…

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Do you have attack animations on?

      • Exeledus

        yes. other than when I’m grinding or training I always have them on, or it would be boring to look at.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Yeah, still it may help if you are going to attempt a long streak to turn them off.

    • towelgirl21

      I played a random matchup Battle Royal once. That took FOREVER, especially since everyone had to use a Z-move. I like the format, but I haven’t played it again for that reason.

  • DefensiveBastiodon

    I really want to try that new drink. It sounds really interesting. Also I have never been more in love with a Pokémon game and Sun and Moon have revitalized my interest in the series and I can’t wait to see what the future of the games looks like. Hot male characters like Kukui and Guzma, awesome Pokémon, even the ones I didn’t like at first have grown on me, characters from past games, and the gesture that something big is about to happen in the Pokémon universe.

    • Exeledus

      I just hope at some point they finish the project AZOTH thing, it honestly really bugs me that Zygarde has no plot development. other than that, these are probable my favorite in the franchise now.

      • DefensiveBastiodon

        There is no telling what Gamefreak originally had planned for the Gen 6 and Gen 7 connection. I’m sure it was affected by a major NX game. Who knows though. If the main series game rumor for the Switch is real though, I hope they play more on AZOTH.

        • EarthenWarrior

          It is looong gone
          Face it Gamefreak skewered the story just to have those Pokemon in there
          They didn’t bother to make it better or give other characters significant impacts

      • TCRowlet

        PLEASE!! Zygarde STILL has no plot, it’s dying for it, it could be so amazing!!!

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well unless they’re gonna pull a BW2 its just gonna be there just to be there

          I mean the story fell apart halfway through I MEAN HONESTLY WE GOT ONE SINGLE UB BATTLE MAINSTORY AND THAT WAS IT, AND FOR THE ULTRA DEMENSION WE JUST WALKED HALF A ROOM AND FOUGHT LUSAMINE, NO GLADION STORY NO TYPE NULL DEVELOPMENT, JUST BUTCHED HALF-ASSERY

          BECAUSE GAMEFREAK IS LAZY, THEY DONT GO ALL THE WAY ANYMORE JUST SHELLING OUT GAMES AND LETTING SMALL DETAILS COVER UP THEIR LAZINESS

          • TCRowlet

            Lol, it’s true. We meet and battle Gladion, then the next time we see him he’s telling us to get out of his motel. Then the next time we see him, he’s warning us about not letting anything happen to Cosmog. Like what? xD

            Watch Stars focus on Necrozma, and Zygarde/Kalos are left to be what could have been. Even Dexio states Zygarde is a Pokemon that protects the Kalos region and questions why it is in Alola xD Yet it does nothing in Alola!

          • Exeledus

            i wouldn’t mind if it focused on Necrozma, hes mysterious enough to hold my attention. i just hope Stars is on a much grander Scale, being on a home console and all.

          • TCRowlet

            Oh same, it’d just bother me in the sense Zygarde would still have absolutely nothing 4 years later…

          • EarthenWarrior

            I am not easily swayed by new game’s charms to ignore such a slapdash story
            Stars better be real and Gamefreak better get their shit together

            The plot of Stars should be fairly similar to Platinum and BW2, where its 3 years after the events of first game where a new family arrives in the Alola Region and he/she takes on the Island challenge, but they learn that the Aether foundation under new rule is completely good now, but a splinter group now plots to bring about the Ultra Beasts by all sorts of crazy terroristic plots, something involving Fallers and how you are one, yadda yadda Zygarde comes in and goes berserk which was the splinter group’s plan all along

          • They aren’t lazy. Lazy would be keeping the engine from X and Y and putting zero effort into a story

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yes they are, honestly whatever happened with that whole climatic battle between Tapu Koko and UB-02? Any deeper reason for Type: Null? slapping random old favorites just for cameos and nothing more, just very lackluster story that everyone is fairly blind to

          • They have done that since Gen 4. They left mysteries to be pondered until Stars version comes out and solves them

      • EarthenWarrior

        Project AZOTH is nothing but a glorified plot to return the world to its primeval state by literally having the Primals wipe out every living thing on the planet
        So realizing that is bad they abandoned the project then those buttwipes restarted the project and through some convoluted plan to warp a meteor to strike the planet so it does it for it…..

        • Exeledus

          i know that, but now that zygarde exists… why didn’t it interfere? same with the situation in kalos, i don’t see why zygarde isn’t doing anything major in these plots, and i kinda wish they’d just go all out with it instead of “hey its a fetch quest with no plot!”

  • Exeledus

    great, now I’m forcing the battle tree to have mono water teams so they can deal with araquanid. i really wish the loadouts were random instead of focused on stopping you. still though, araquanid buddy, doing 75% to bluky waters with a water move…

    • TCRowlet

      Are you able to put your challenge on hold and swap out teams like you could in the Maison?

      • Exeledus

        yes.

        • TCRowlet

          Yay

    • Chaos

      They should just send out Rocky Helmet Alomola and Wish Stall you :p

      To be fair if bulky waters are the best answer to Araquanid you just need an electric or grass type in your second slot and you’re good to go.

      • Exeledus

        they aren’t. my araquanid set deals about 75% damage to common(ish?) bulky waters (I’m in the battle tree). Milotic takes about 75%, Slowking takes about 80%, gyarados about 60% (after intimidate). this is all from my Araquanid’s liquidation, not even a neutral hit, and he picks up these 2HKOs, while tanking hits like a boss. I gave him a speed decreasing nature just incase they want to get silly and try trick room (figured he wont be outspeeding too often anyways, so it wasn’t worth investing in.) he partners with goodra, M-Metagross, and Shiinotic mostly. (sometimes ninetales gives him an aurora veil to work with)

  • Spetsnaz

    so, would anybody be willing to hold onto some of my mons if i restarted my game, until i could get to a point to trade them back?

    • Spetsnaz

      there’s only a handfull that i really actually need saved

    • Restart for what exactly?

      • Spetsnaz

        just to playthrough again

        • Oh. I thought is was to get all the starters or something. Maybe even duplicate Munchlax. I would need to catch a whole bunch of fodder mons to do that, but I’m stuck in another chain atm.

          • Spetsnaz

            is greninja still transferable if ive already transfered one?

          • Spetsnaz

            upon further inspection, i can probably just recatch everything and get the events cause they’re still going

  • One Hoarse Open Slay

    Right, since I’ve had 5~ days away, I’ve kinda got a rough time frame of when I’ll be back, and why I’m on my little hiatus.

    Basically, kinda sick of the Pokémon Fandom as a whole. Don’t get me wrong, I honestly wouldn’t change a single thing here, or about anyone here, but there’s trends in the fandom that just bug me to the point of mild anger, especially in regards to opinion-which does sadly come here, but if this was my only exposure to the fandom’s flaws I wouldn’t really care, I’d just suck it up and deal with it. However, it is wide spread and extremely irritating, which is why I’m taking a break.

    Secondly, and more importantly, school’s busy as hell right now. The sciences are starting assignments, I’ve got my second half of my English folio to do, and Modern Studies and Health & Food Technology are having their counterparts to assignments and folios coming up soon. I’m mostly taking time off to compose myself with all the spare time I can afford before it all collapses on top of me.

    As for when I’ll be back? Don’t expect me to post any time except to wish you guys a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I’ll probably be back sometime in mid-to-late January, but even then it’ll probably be less then my regular activity due to the fact my Prelims (basically practice exams) are coming up in February. I only get away with how frequently I post because I’ve mostly been focusing on minor studying and the weather has drove me and my friends indoors. I’m also probably going to post less because, as typical as it sounds, am making it my resolution to live a healthier lifestyle: which along with a diet consists of plenty of physical activity. I’m not going to have this ‘awkward lanky teenage boy metabolism’ forever after all :p

    Third reason is dumb but I’ve literally just bought Bravely Default and the first two Magnus Bane books so I’d probably be barely posting anyway.

    I only really made this post because I didn’t want anyone worrying about me or thinking I’m gone forever (as much as some of you would enjoy that :p) because my last post had a very ‘I’m leaving. Bye.’ vibe to it.

    See all ya huge nerds later, see you later Feraligatr, in a while Krookodile, adios, sayonara, I’m hungry, be back soon.

    I recently finished breeding and training up a utility Stoutland, but after some failed VGC 3v3 battles, I’ve decided it’s not best for my gym. Battle Royal and doubles, however…dang. That thing is messing with everybody.

      • Ben

    • Yes, it’s likely intentional.

      Some Pokemon have more pride and have a less chance to call for help. Try chaining Sharpedo – they hardly call for backup. Others don’t call for help at all like Mareanie and Sableye.

  • Ithsme

    Did I ever mention how much I hate december? Cause I really really hate december.

    Don’t get me wrong I love christmas and the break, but I’d much MUCH rather have a normal school month. It’s completely unfair that because my teachers didn’t plan well, I’m completely drowning in work right now. I haven’t eaten lunch on a weekday since november because I’m trying to chip away on large assignments, and tackle medium size assignments that the teacher “forgot the assign earlier” that are due in less than three or so days. Not to mention that this is the first year of my life where I’m not “the gifted kid”, I just feel dumb this year. I had this genius idea to take all advanced classes this semester, and it’s really beating me up. I’m getting terrible sleep, and I’m not eating enough because of school, it’s almost literally killing me. The worst part? Even on break they’ll assign huge projects, going agaisnt the term “break”. It’s not called “hiatus from school, but just as much work as school”. What is it now, the 10th? When will it be over already?

    Rant over, sorry you had to read that, I just wanted to get it off my chest. I feel a little less stressed now, so I’m glad that helped. Everyone else having similar experiences with the worst month of the year?

    • SpectralSeraph

      THIS!!! THIS RIGHT HERE!!!

      • Ithsme

        Yeah. December is the worst month of the year, despite having a large break and the best holiday. It really goes to show what kind of month it really is lol.

        Aside from that, my christmas break is only 9 days, which is the shortest I’ve ever had by far.

        • SpectralSeraph

          I’m dying man….

          • Ithsme

            Power through it. We just need to keep the hope of mid to late january in our minds.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yep! (Until I get hit with yet another wave of trash)

          • Ithsme

            Around april-may.

          • SpectralSeraph

            And I die under the weight of NY state tests than too

    • TheNintendoChip

      1. Eating is important. I’m sure you know that already, but really you shouldn’t skip eating to work. I used to do that too, except I’d go entire days without eating, and just working. It sucks and it makes you more stressed if you continually work all the time. Take some time off to relax, even if that’s just eating. 30 minutes or however long it takes to eat isn’t going to kill you — not eating will.

      2. Recognize that teachers are people too. Understand that they make mistakes. If they forgot to assign something, then yeah you can blame them. But what good does it do? It doesn’t change the fact that the due date doesn’t change, so you just gotta deal with it. Also, someone forgetting to assign something isn’t characteristic of the month December, so I wouldn’t hate the month because of it. If all your teachers happened to all forget to assign something, then that’s something we call a coincidence. I’m not sure how much scapegoating you’re doing, but I’ve never had a teacher forget to assign an assignment, let alone more than one at the same time.

      3. Everyone feels dumb once in a while. You’re not alone. But what you’re forgetting is that you’re in advanced classes. You’re not dumb. And I don’t know what grades you’re getting, but remember that a C corresponds to being average per class. Getting a C in an advanced class still means that you’re doing well. You’re not failing. And if you’re so concerned with being the “gifted kid”, then I urge you to drop that mentality. You don’t need to be at the top of the class. You don’t need to be perfect.

      4. Teachers give work over the break because you have a long time to do it. I’ve also never heard of a teacher assigning something over the break and collecting it on the first day back; usually you’re given an extra couple of days to a week to finish it. I don’t like it either. I don’t know anyone who does. And I don’t know any teacher who likes grading that much work. It’s just something we all have to deal with. Furthermore, it’s important to realize that teachers don’t coordinate giving a ton of work to do at the same time — at least not from what I’ve seen. It just happens to build up at times for one reason or another.

      5. It gets better when you get to college. You’ll still have days where you just spend the entire time working. But, at least in my experience, you’ll have more time off.

      • Ithsme

        Your advice works if I’m thinking rationally, but. . . too busy. I appriciate it though, it means a lot that you would take the time to write all that for my benefit.

    • Dicie

      It’s definitely difficult for sure. Not crazy, but I’ll have to give two presentations and take a few tests next week. One thing I don’t like about the midterm scheduling is that we have the three weeks in December leading up to Winter Break, but midterms are AFTER two weeks of doing nothing and likely forgetting a lot of important details. It would be much more efficient to start midterms BEFORE break, giving us one less thing to worry about when we get back. Although, for me, there are three more weeks after break to prepare for midterms… eh. Whatever. Best of luck on your work and hang in there. 🙂

      • Ithsme

        Thank you, I’ll do my best. Having midterms after break really sucks, I’d hate that. And I wish you luck on those. 🙂

  • EarthenWarrior

    So I’ve been hearing stuff about this weird flash series that goes by the name “No Evil” anyone know what that is?

    • DucoLamia

      Why are you torturing yourself fam?

      • So I can get two rare kitchens and get my pokemon quickly to level 100

        • DucoLamia

          ???
          What Facility is that?

          • It levels up pokemon

          • DucoLamia

            Where do you get that? I’ve been grinding for FC too and all I have is one star facilities

          • Its totally random. @SpectralSeraph:disqus didnt you say you had one?

          • DucoLamia

            That’s sucks….;-; Now that I think about it, It really sounds useful, but your still torturing yourself fam. I wish you good luck on your journey.

          • Hi Duco: Still need an Oranguru?

          • DucoLamia

            Yeah! Hit me up. What’s your friend code. I got a bunch of Pokemon from Wondertrade so I’m happy to give some away.

          • 3351-4646-9325 IGN: Pandora

            Now I have 2 kinds of Oranguru rejects: Sassy (0 speed included) and Modest. Which one would you like?

          • DucoLamia

            I’ll have the Modest one please.
            My Friend Code is: 0748-6531-9751
            What are you interested in? I have 4IV Gible, Alolan Vulpix, Maworak, and some more breedject Mimikyus

          • I’ll take Cubone/Marowak.

          • DucoLamia

            I’ll give the Cubone then!

          • DucoLamia

            Did you get my request?

          • Sorry, got interrupted by parents. 🙂

            Gimme a minute. Also do you prefer beast ball or timer ball?

          • DucoLamia

            Are you still on for the trade?

          • Yes I am. I just got back. Beast or Timer Ball? 🙂

          • DucoLamia

            Any Ball works for me. Want me to send the request again?

          • Sure, I can send it now.

          • Is it working, are you sending the request, I don’t seem to be getting any… I also tried trading you.

          • DucoLamia

            Thanks for trading with me!

          • No prob, and sorry for the delays.

            I’ll probably have more breedjects in the future.

          • DucoLamia

            No prob. My internet was acting up and I was so scared I wouldn’t get the Oranguru XD. Thankfully everything pulled through.

          • DucoLamia

            Oh Yeah, My IGN: Alexa. Make sure to send me a request!

          • SpectralSeraph

            Nope, but I have the option for a low level one

          • The higher level your festival plaza, the better chance of getting more stars facilities on levelup by Sophocles.

            AFAIK, you get the chance of being offered 4 stars starting 60 and 5 stars starting 80.

    • Grinding levels could be faster than grinding FC at this rate..?

    • Ithsme

      Still better than hunting Pikipek. That has a definite goal, this. . . this could go on for months if I’m really unlucky.

  • EarthenWarrior

    I’m so bored
    I’m sick of grinding battle tree
    I’m sick of breeding things that will never kill Chanseys
    And I’m sick of not getting good faculties in FP because those stupid elitists hog all the FCs

    Anyone for Little cup Royale

    • MenacingCascoon

      Why not have some fun and chill and pokemon. Do some fun things

      • EarthenWarrior

        What is this fun of which you speak

  • EarthenWarrior

    Where is everyone

    • Ithsme

      It’s december.

      • EarthenWarrior

        ……

  • EarthenWarrior

    I can’t tell if I accidentally traded a shiny lillipup….
    I think I didn’t but I think I might’ve….the face fur looked a tad brighter

    • EarthenWarrior

      Never mind regular ol mutt

  • SpectralSeraph

    Hearing rumors Decidueye and Araquanid actually made OU…
    😀

    • SassyChespins

      Do you know the list yet?

      • SpectralSeraph

        Not entirely
        I just heard rumors those two and, oddly enough Golisopod is

  • EarthenWarrior

    Siiiiiiiiigghhhopffbffbbbttffb……screw it going to bed place is dead…night

  • Magearna is already banned from Doubles OU since last Sunday… already.

    • SpectralSeraph

      (Slow clap)
      Its not that bad honestly…

      • Unlike Moxie or Beast Boost, anything that faints, for any reason, gives Magearna a boost in doubles. So it is potentially really bad. 🙂

        At least, Soul Heart is the same as Moxie/BB in singles so Magearna still lives on there…

        • SpectralSeraph

          True, but can’t it be countered hard?

          • Magearna has no 4x weaknesses though. I really can’t think of a good hard counter, especially in doubles where its few (typing) weaknesses can be covered by the teammate. And it so happens that fire and ground are both covered by the Water type, which makes it easy to find a partner for it.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Hmmmm..

    • Is it still safe in OU?

      • It was only instabanned in doubles OU.

        It is fine in Singles.

        • Thank god. Also its at level 63 now so I’m getting to 100 slowly but surly

  • EarthenWarrior

    The very second I enter showdown…..Mimikyu used toxic… Then protect then sub….then protect….
    The a stupid Attract Sensu… And then just a normal stupid Z-Splash Mimikyu
    Three bad losses in under 5 mins

  • EarthenWarrior

    Jesus tap dancing Christ,,,
    Z-Splash is…is evil…

  • Ithsme

    The pikipek thing is soooo annoying. I want to quit but I just can’t at this point. I could almost have my full team done. D:

  • Ithsme

    Was it ever confirmed that BotW is releasing in March, or just 2017 still?

    • BotW is “2017” still. Only the Switch is confirmed for March.

      • Ithsme

        Really hoping it’s a launch title, or a summer title.

        • I’ve heard July being thrown around. But no retailer has listed a concrete date for it…

          • Ithsme

            Nintendo better impress me with their launch lineup and 2017 line-up for a day one purchase.

          • I’m not gonna buy any of these myself, but I think they have it in the bag if they have at least the Mario game, NBA 2k17 and Skyrim as launch titles.

          • Ithsme

            I’m sort of expecting the Splatoon and MK to be the launch titles, which will be good if they’re new games, but a disaster if they’re enhanced ports.

          • I think Splatoon is a new game. There’s too much new stuff in its preview to just be a rehash.

          • MK is likely an enhanced port.

  • EarthenWarrior

    You got to be kidding me…
    I fight a Gourgiest… Thinking yeah I could use Minior’s shell smash combo
    It uses Z-Trick or Treat
    ALL OF FUCKING GOURGIEST’S STATS RAISED AND IM A GHOST
    Minior doesn’t kill it… It used Phantom Force….
    Dead….

    Just never ends

    • YAY I JUST REALIZED HOW GOOD GOURGEIST IS GOONA BE

      • EarthenWarrior

        it’s still slow as crap and worthless on normal types

  • Ithsme

    OMG I just thought of the perfect Komala nickname.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Doorstop?

      • Ithsme

        Paperweight.

    • I named mine Soup

      • Ithsme

        But why

    • Hibearnator?

      • Ithsme

        That’s clever, but nah.

  • Serenotic
    • EarthenWarrior

      A sock puppet can learn bulk up yet a Horse can’t
      Fuck you Gamefreak

      • Serenotic

        I’m using it as a bulky tank or a stall. I haven’t decided yet, but it will be gloriously diabolical.

        • SpectralSeraph

          Well it can be statused, keep that in mind

          • Serenotic

            Well anything (besides Komola) can be effected by status moves so that’s not too big of a concern for me at this point.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        You don’t know what its’ got going for it under that sheet, could be more ripped than Machamp.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Nice, congratulations on your new monochrome ghost thingy. I think the updated Timer Ball explosion will work well with it.

    • I love Timer Ball this gen, so you have good taste.

      • Ithsme

        You’ve mentioned this before, but now I’m curious, why do you love it so much?

        • I know it might sound weird, but it’s black all over, and explodes in clocks which I find very amusing. Also I recently let stuff go and red became my second favorite color next to green, after years of hating red.

          Also, do you want the female HA mareanie still? It’s in a timer ball but if you breed it with any male mareanie you can get it (50% chance each offspring) in a ball of your choice.

          • Ithsme

            I appriciate the offer, but I’ve bred my own. Thank you though! 🙂

            You’ve peaked my intrested again, I’m sorry for being so nosy. Is there any particular reason you hated red for years?

          • I don’t consider it a sensitive topic, fortunately, so I can talk about it. 🙂

            I’m angry all the time, and whenever I see any red I get angrier, so I can’t stand looking at anything red.

            Months ago something* just happened to me and it’s like a switch got flipped–so I was not only able to forgive the people from my past that I swore vengeance upon–and I have been able to channel my perpetual anger to motivate me instead.

            So not only don’t I mind seeing red from then on, I now have red stuff on my work and home desk.

            * That “something” might have been watching Inside Out. Anger is my favorite character. 🙂

      • Serenotic

        I was going for the it-aged-over-20-years theme. I had to have a pokeball to match that theme. 😛

    • Ithsme

      Yay!! Congrats!!

      (I’m dying inside. ;_;)

      • Serenotic

        1162 eggs. Lol I was keeping count since this is the first time I’ve had the shiny charm(also used the Masuda method).

        I don’t know which name I want to go with for it though. :/

  • EarthenWarrior
  • SpectralSeraph
    • Ithsme

      Didn’t Golisopod make OU though?

      • SpectralSeraph

        Even so

        CRABOMINABLE?!
        CRABOMINABLE!? WHAT DRUGS ARE THESE PEOPLE ON?! XD

        • EarthenWarrior

          The cause of death: several overdoses of a drug cocktail of meth, cocaine, and heroine

          • SpectralSeraph

            Possibly

  • MenacingCascoon

    And just like i am finisheed with my very first pokemon team in sm. Starting tomorrow i will be taking names of my victims

    • EarthenWarrior

      Question
      Are they 50+ in level?

      • MenacingCascoon

        Most are. Why?

        • “Pokemon Trainer Ian wants to battle…”

          • EarthenWarrior

            That’s Pokemon Warlord Earthen Maximus Supreme: Intimidator of the Realm seeks new carnage

        • EarthenWarrior

          I am so freaking at a loss for leveling
          Granted I’m so fracking busy and have little to no BP which hopefully that Metagross will fix, but so far all my competitive are babbies and suckling at Pokepalageo juice sessions….

          I just feel so out of place in Alola… It feels like I’ve been dealt a mighty blow…

          • Ithsme

            After a while you’ll get the hang of it (and the items you need lol).

          • MenacingCascoon

            Yea leveling is tedious. You can either use plaza or just rematch e4 and morimoto. EV training is also through sos battles. It sucks they made step back but you just gotta do it. Luckily however they made heart scales work for future moves so thats a plus.

          • Ithsme

            And IV checks in PC. That saves a ton of time.

          • EarthenWarrior

            NYAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRR
            I don’t want to fight the E4 with a team of hatchlings
            I don’t want to wait for shit to call backup when half the time they never do
            I want to fight Chanseys or Audinos and hordes

            Everything suuuuucks

          • SpectralSeraph

            (Insert sad dab)

          • We can fight the E4 with a team of hatchlings and one juggernaut…

          • EarthenWarrior

            Ughhhhhhhhhhh too much time

          • I think they are intentionally slowing people down from using Hyper Training… :p

          • EarthenWarrior

            I hate this world and most of the people in it…

  • Ithsme

    Is the nickname char cap still 12?

  • EarthenWarrior

    Is there a filter for Pokeballs

    • EarthenWarrior

      Nope…I guess I gotta go through each box for beast balls

  • Ithsme

    *sigh*
    Seriously. . . I’m just at a loss for words right now. It’s taken around 20 times longer than I’d expected and still counting.
    Pikipek count: 1650

    • EarthenWarrior

      Dude what are you even going to do with a shiny poopiepeck anyway

      • Ithsme

        Evolve and put it in my box as a trophy probably if it doesn’t have a good nature

        I started this quest because I was bored on saturday evening, I thought I’d be done by the time I went to bed. Oh how wrong I was.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Just think of all the time you wasted
          And you’ll. Never. Ever. EVER

          *Demonic echoing*
          BACHK!!!

          • Ithsme

            I know but I feel obligated to finish. I hate this stupid quest.

          • Then just end it. You have probably a 2/25 chance of getting a nature you want and its taking so long its not worth it

          • Ithsme

            I’d feel like a huge failure though. I can’t accept that. It’s my sworn obligation to finish now.

          • Sounding like Earthen 😛 I guess that isn’t a bad thing though. Determination is a good trait I suppose

            Fiery passion? Can he pelvic thrust flamethrowers?

            No, no on all sorts of levels
            If it ain’t true Earthen then that ship ain’t gonna sail toots

          • Prince Fae

            Earthen really for someone with such a big personality as yourself you’d never guess that you’d also throw the biggest pity parties. Life Sucks and its unfair, but life is what you make it so lets make it rock. Do yourself a favour and learn to love yourself, because if you don’t love yourself how the hell are you gunna love anyone else 😉

          • ^^
            best advice

          • Prince Fae

            I managed to fit both hannah montana and RuPaul in one thing

          • even better

          • EarthenWarrior

            Way easier said than done
            How am I goin to love my obesity that causes so much problems or my mental issues that make simple face to face dialogue exchange a nightmare, or my consistently bad luck causing so much stress, I can’t even leave my dang dog out for 15 minutes without her pissing in my parent’s bed and the other one shat on the rug.

            Face it I’m just destined to be unhappy, another fat cog in the gigantic shit filled world where you’ll be working in the same place because nobody else will take you in. I’ll probably croak by age 30 maybe then the eternal silence of blackness I’ll find peace

          • You dont have to love all of the mental issues and your body. Love yourself enough to improve the things you dislike about yourself. If you had a toy and it broke, you wouldn’t just give up on it, you would try to fix it. Glue the arm back onto the action figure. But if you give up on it, its gone. You shouldn’t just give up on life because some stuff sucks. Its too precious to give up on. You gotta fight to find happiness. Never think its hopeless to improve your body or practice being social. Progress is always real if slow.

            If you just decide you are going to be unhappy, you will. If you decide that its okay to dislike things about yourself and try to improve it, then you have a chance of being happy. If you think you will just be unhappy forever, what reason is there to keep trying over and over?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Sometimes it’s just truly not worth it
            It’s been almost 8 solid years of unhappiness and that’s all I honestly know anymore, I don’t even know how it feels to feel happy for more than a half a day, just nothing but cold and bitter

          • How is it not worth it? 8 years of misery sounds like hell. Why do you just want to sit there and stay in it. Earthen, you could be so happy if you just really tried. Yeah that just sounds rich, I know but really. Just go out and do new things and focus on self-improvement. Give yourself a purpose and just something new you can get happiness from. Learn an instrument or a new skill or something. You are just keeping yourself in a prison willingly.

            Your lack of faith in yourself is disappointing. Listen, I have a genetic disorder which will probably end up actually killing me when I’m young. Without any surgery, people with it tended to die from 18-20, with the max life expectancy being 40ish. With a life full of invasive surgery, it’s still fairly low. Your life is worth living. And you need to understand that people like me would trade anything to have a longer life. Please appreciate what you have. Because you can always change yourself, but you can’t change your genetics that easily.

            Nothing will ever happen to you if you don’t even try. You need to be the one to change your own life. Make something of yourself if nobody else will.

            We all have issues. We all have highs and lows. And what keeps us going is the feeling of our highs in life. The happiness, the sense of worth. Let that drive you!

            Trust me, I know that pain…. the fatness part.. .I look like a nerdy ball of ass . I trust things will get better for ya

          • EarthenWarrior

            I barely have one to be honest
            All of my weight is in the front

          • SpectralSeraph

            Welp, than you’re better off than me in that sense
            Trust me, just TRY to be optimistic, does a person wonders

          • EarthenWarrior

            I did for a while and life tells me that things always suck

          • SpectralSeraph

            Thats what I feel, but I tried some more, and I’m doin it till it works

          • Prince Fae

            if you’re unhappy with your weight then work to lose some, but do it for you and not to please others, if its for health then go you, and exercise daily does help your mental state leading you to be happier. As for the dogs, I expect nothing less from pugs, they are vile creatures, but I know you love them, so why not try to train them not to be little pricks

          • SpectralSeraph

            Rhydon Nut (NOPE NOPE NOPE IM JUST MAKING A JOKE)

      • lol poopiepek.
        Dont blame the Pikipek. Blame evolution for slaughtering my hopes and dreams

        • Ithsme

          Toucannon > Pikipek > Trumbeak > Incineroar > Bewear

          • Ultron

            Yes.

  • Ithsme

    @SpectralSeraph
    What tier did Komala make?

    • SpectralSeraph

      I know it didn’t make OU but it didn’t say
      Honestly I see RU

      • UU then or BL I guess?

        • SpectralSeraph

          Not with that spread

          • Ithsme

            The ability + facade though

          • SpectralSeraph

            Wait why? It can’t be statused

          • It is asleep

          • Ithsme

            Facade counts as it IS sleeping.

            As does wake up slap.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Wait really?

          • Ithsme

            Yup. I learned wake-up slap the hard way.

          • SpectralSeraph

            WHY DOES THAT WORK WITH FACADE!?

          • Ithsme

            Why? It’s asleep, what’s so hard to understand? xD

          • SpectralSeraph

            But it doesn’t actually have the status

          • Ithsme

            It’s ability makes it have the sleep, while not showing it. That’s why it can’t get other statuses.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh so its like Araquanid

          • Ithsme

            What does aquarachnid have?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Y’know, the hidden effect making water attacks deal 2.0x damage?

          • Ithsme

            Oh, that. Forgot about that.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Hence OU water spooder

          • Yes it does. It just doesn’t show it on Showdown for some reason

          • Ithsme

            It doesn’t show in game either, showdown is correct. It’s a hidden mechanic.

          • http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Comatose_(Ability)

            If Bulbapedia is right, Comatose doesn’t double Facade damage.

          • Ithsme

            I’m fairly certain it does…
            I could very well be wrong though.

          • Here’s how I’ll test it later:

            Get a Komala and fight an almost same level encounter. If Facade deals more damage than Thrash, then we’re on…

      • Ithsme

        Why did Komala make a sudden drop in popularity? When the game was first released everyone praised it saying it’d be OU for sure, one of the most OP in the game, but now it’s just meh.

        • SpectralSeraph

          Because everyone expected this busted sweeper with busted stats along with that ability on an evolution

          • No but at release people knew it didnt evolve and still praised it

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh, because I’m guessing everyone saw its movepool (Which by the way is EXTREMELY GOOD)
            Honestly? Stats are what hold it back

          • Ithsme

            Bulk up + sub + facade + that ability

            I really don’t see why it won’t be good

          • SpectralSeraph

            I can see where your coming from…..

          • Ithsme

            Yay, I got through to somebody! 😀

          • SpectralSeraph

            But there is a problem… I’m supposing the fact that there are a fair amount of counters
            And a lack of recovery outside of wish isnt’t doing it any favors
            and that HP and Defense
            Plus 4 moveslot syndrome

          • Ithsme

            4 moveslot syndrome just means it has a good moveset, no real problem. 😛

          • SpectralSeraph

            I mean its a problem in the sense that it wants to run it all at once but it can’t, kinda like Mega Alt
            But it also suffers from the fact of how its physical, HP, and Speed are low

          • Ithsme

            I mean when the stats got released.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Also one thing I have to ask
    Why is a good portion of people’s messages is * clap clap clap squirm squirm squirm

    • Because its kinda funny

    • DucoLamia

      I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE.
      (not to mention that they usually give the crappiest Pokemon too)

    • Ithsme

      I think it’s default.

    • SpectralSeraph

      I think I’m like Gulp gulp giggle giggle

    • Mine is “I’ll give you a P10,000,000,000 fine for being late!”

      • DucoLamia

        I died when I saw you could have that as an option XD

        • It’s not a default message though. It’s one of the messages unlocked from Sinnoh Tent. 🙂

  • Does anyone else just despise Sub? Every single time I use it, it gets destroyed on the first turn its up

    • SpectralSeraph

      No, its that everyone is well aware of what happens when you leave one up

      • I figured I just dont know how to use it

    • EarthenWarrior

      I despise it

    • Ithsme

      It’s good under certain situations. The issue is knowing when to properly use it.

    • DucoLamia

      I used it on a Maworak and it worked pretty well for me, but my friend has used one and he has terrible luck with. So, yeah. I don’t hate it, it’s just you have to have a decent build for a sub.

    • SomeGuy

      Sub?

      • Substitute sorry

        • SomeGuy

          Yea I never use it. I can’t utilize it well ever it seems

  • EarthenWarrior

    Stop giving me Eevees Wondertrade

    • DucoLamia

      What? Eevees are great trade fodder.

      • EarthenWarrior

        But I don’t want fodder in exchange for fodder
        I spend way too much of my valuable worthless time resending the endless slew of wingulls and Yungoos

        • DucoLamia

          I see. I can feel the pain of receiving an Abra after sending more fodder.

          • Prince Fae

            Ive never seen an abra through WT, I spent and hour doing it once (had a box to get rid of) and only got like 5 different early route pokemon

          • DucoLamia

            Consider yourself verrrrry lucky. Abra are the bane of my existence this gen. Don’t get me wrong. Alakazam is a good Pokemon, but I certainly don’t need 35 un-IV trained Pokemon that have the same Synchronise ability over and over. It drives me mad when I send a decent Pokemon and get that.

          • Prince Fae

            …. no abra was the one thing I was specifically hoping to get out of wonder trade. To this day the best thing I have ever gotten from WT including gen 6 was a 4IV Ladyba, and I have used it a lot

          • DucoLamia

            Sorry I meant unlucky. My bad

          • Prince Fae

            lol

          • DucoLamia

            Are you still looking for an Abra? I got a good natured one for you and it’s 5IVs(If you care about comp. battling) so hopefully it’ll be good. I don’t need one( NEVER. AGAIN.) So do you want to trade?

          • Prince Fae
