Just a day after Pokémon GO’s release on the Apple Watch, Niantic has revealed the holiday event for the ever popular mobile game!

December 25th until January 3rd

  • Get a one time use Incubator each day on your first PokéStop spin of the day
  • All the recently baby Pokémon’s eggs will be more likely to be obtained from PokéStops during this time period as well
  • Previously only set to appear until December 29th, the Festive Hat Pikachu will be now be available in the wild until January 3rd

December 30th – January 8th

  • Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle and their evolutionary lines are more likely to be encountered during this time
  • Lure modules will last for 60 minutes instead of the usual 30 minutes

Strangely, even though the presents are in the image they used, Niantic didn’t explain the mystery gifts found in the APK.

For the full statement check out their official blog!

Gavin has never really been good at writing bios, nor does he think he ever will be. When he’s not playing Pokemon he enjoys long walks on the beach and reading romantic novellas by candlelight. He’s in his Sophomore year of his Marketing Major.

  • Hayley Waalen

    Coolio, I’ll take it

  • ReviewReviewer

    Strangely, Ninatic doesn’t even mention that 90+ other Gen 2 Pokemon. You’d think they’d at least give them out as presents, but nope. Sometimes that company sickens me and damages my soul. What a pathetic group of humans.

    • Ithsme

      I mean they must have some sort of plan, but it is a bit annoying.

      • Daedardus

        It’s Niantic. Going by Ingress their plan is not having a plan.

        • ReviewReviewer

          Nintendo should just shut them down their Gen 2 intro video was basically half/half.

        • Ithsme

          Going by ingress? All we needed to look at to say that was the launch of GO. Jokes aside though, I hope this isn’t their strategy for every gen.

          • ReviewReviewer

            75% of the people playing Pkmn Go right now will be DEAD by the time they roll out Gen 7 at this rate.

      • ReviewReviewer

        What greedy hogs.

    • Wes

      Someone’s a little dramatic. It’s a simple marketing ploy. It keeps people coming back while ensuring stability in the app. They likely will not update large amounts of Pokemon just to make sure the app and their servers can handle it, then move up in small increments from there. Besides, this way, we’ll get more than 8 Pokemon updates.

      • ReviewReviewer

        I’m not dramatic, I’m just angry how Niantic’s such a greedy pig. Tell that to your 3 followers too, I have the perfect reason to be angry with them.

      • ReviewReviewer

        Also, if they don’t introduce all of a gen at a time how will they be able to introduce all of the gens?

  • Chaos

    Awkward moment where the Halloween event was better. Lol.

    One time use Incubators? What?

    Personally I think this Christmas was the perfect time to throw in all of Gen 2 Pokemon and increase spawn rates. But then again I guess they werent sure if the servers could handle it.

  • The Holiday Kurusu

    Holiday Pikachu originally ended on my birthday but yay!

    • ReviewReviewer

      I think for Sun and Moon, in the theme of dark and gory Entries, Delibird’s entire houdlve been this:

      It has been rumoured before this fellow holiday bird, Pikachu with holiday hats were spotted everywhere. After the first Delibird, no more of those Pikachus were heard of again.

  • SpectralSeraph

    One week ago, a total of 1-2 new articles

    Past two days: Three new articles
    This place is perfect

    • Ithsme

      Yeah and of course the super negative article about things people hate about the game lasted 4 whole days.

      • SpectralSeraph

        Oh yeah XD

  • SpectralSeraph

    Lemme know when Murkrow arrives

  • Spetsnaz

    anybody want a tcg code?

    • Spetsnaz

      got cards for my nephews for christmas and got a free code out of it, first come first serve 🙂

  • Armaggedon16

    What is the fastest way to get Bottle Caps? I need them for A.Greninja

    • ReviewReviewer

      Buy lots of bottles.

      • ReviewReviewer

        Jokes aside, Poke Pelago or Lottery Shops in those online festivals.

        • Armaggedon16

          I’ve tried those but haven’t found any yet. Isn’t there another way to get them, one that Doesnt involve luck?

          • ReviewReviewer

            Not that I heard of, but if you get that Magearna you’ll get 1 free Bottle cap.

          • Armaggedon16

            I’ve done the magearna event though. Oh well, guess I’ll try to fish them next :/

          • ReviewReviewer

            Too bad you can only use Bottle Caps on lvl 100 Pokemon.

          • Armaggedon16

            Yeah. They messed up hyper training but it’s still useful for event and legendary Pokémon, and my greninja is lvl100 so that’s not a problem right now

    • The Festival Kuppo

      Go to poke pelago and try to get as many shards as posible, then trade them to the guy in the mall. This is the Best way to get Caps that I know

  • ReviewReviewer

    Is Alolan Vulpix/Ninetales based off of the arctic fox?

    • EarthenWarrior

      No it’s based off the aborigine snow shitting furred weasel, that come up to the mountains on every Tuesday of every month to blanket the area with ice cold poo

      • ReviewReviewer

        That’s so stupid of GF.

  • ReviewReviewer

    I’m trying to get a random encounter shiny as i have a shiny charm, but honestly if I get a stupid Trumbreak shiny I’ll scream.

    • Ithsme

      I’m 4 boxes into a shiny Rowlet hunt. Going well so far, hopefully it won’t be another turtwig.

      • ReviewReviewer

        I don’t wan to do eggs, they fill up my boxes.

        • Ithsme

          I have to, there’s no other way for me. Plus I can ensure nature and such.

          • ReviewReviewer

            Yuck nature hunters

          • Ithsme

            ??

          • SpectralSeraph

            You mean people who play competitive? Some of us enjoy it

  • ReviewReviewer

    Here are some Pokemon Alolan Form ideas I have if they implement them in Stars:

    – Cloyster; based off of the mollusc that’s considered food.

    – Kingler; Based off of a lobster.

    – Jynx: Based off of Moana/Hula girl

    – Mr Mime: Based off of a native tribesman

    – Kangaskhan: Based off of a magma-burnt Kanghaskhan

    – Clefable: Based off of a pixie

    • Best Indian Tech Support

      Because that wouldn’t be racist at all

      • ReviewReviewer

        Pff, Jynx has immunity on racism, it has the right to look how it wants.

      • ReviewReviewer

        Plus the opposite of purple is yellowy-orange anyways, so it’ll just be like a simple shiny swap. Like Muk!

        • Best Indian Tech Support

          A racist, inappropriate Muk

          • ReviewReviewer

            They would make it least racist as possible, just keep its purple colour but have it wear a lei and a hula skirt. Clothing items are not racist.

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            I mean I don’t believe in cultural appropriation and all that jazz but yeah clothing can be racist

          • ReviewReviewer

            I doubt that wearing a hula and lei are considered racist.

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            No, but on a native based creatures they could be

      • Spetsnaz

        i don’t see how it would be?

        • Best Indian Tech Support

          Having native peoples represented as creatures with less intellect than the rest of the world’s humans

          • ReviewReviewer

            Tsraeena is based off of tsarinas though.

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            Tsareena isn’t based off of a particular race, its literally a pun on how the mangosteen is called the Queen of fruit

          • ReviewReviewer

            Jinx wasn’t based off black eople either, just a human.

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            No one is saying it is

          • Spetsnaz

            i think there was a japanese yo-kai its based on, that takes the form of an old lady? can’t remember all the details, but yeah, not seen as being based on any actual human’s specificly

          • EarthenWarrior

            Ahhh you beat me to it

          • Spetsnaz

            just barely, though your comment was better detailed 🙂

          • EarthenWarrior

            Details are my specialty

          • EarthenWarrior

            Not exactly
            It’s based on a Japanese Yokai where it depicted a woman with a tattered red dress and riddled with frostbite and had powers of snow

          • ReviewReviewer

            Yes but technically Froslass is also a thinner Jynx.

          • Spetsnaz

            they would be the pokemon still ,who upon moving to the islands, adopted the clothing and traditions of the people?

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            Could still come across as ill willed though

            People thought Jynx was racist when it wasn’t even based on race (its based on a fashion style) so what would they think of Pokémon that deliberately mirror natives?

          • Spetsnaz

            that it adapted to the new island life, rather than just moving to the mountains to stay in the snow. Just because it COULD be seen as ill willed, doesn’t mean anything. There are people who are going to be offended by everything, just gotta take references in a game with a grain of salt.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Those sound dumb
      If I were to do so only Vileplume Grass/Flying petals become lighter and thinner and they can glide on air

      Honestly what else makes sense
      I’m not gonna just give Pokemon a tropical reskin, I want real reasons why they would change and adapt not making Pokemon imitate the stereotypical natives

      • ReviewReviewer

        Only 2 of them are based off of clothing though.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well why would Cloyster go mollusk, or Kingler a lobster
          Details man I want details

          • ReviewReviewer

            Because Remoraid becomes an Octillery.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Stop avoiding the question

            Also it’s probably because of how remora fish and artillery

          • ReviewReviewer

            I don’t want to say it, nobody deserves to know any of my ideas here, too critical.

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            ‘Nobody deserves your ideas’

            No on deserves to experience them tbh

          • ReviewReviewer

            Goodbye!

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            Adios

          • ReviewReviewer

            The best thing I could’ve sid as that was clearly the turning point for an argument.

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            Yeah, over how you can’t take criticism

          • ReviewReviewer

            If that’s what you want to say go for it, I don’t mind.

          • Spetsnaz

            there’s constructive criticism, and then there’s being rude

          • ReviewReviewer

            OK I’m sorry, I take a hint, I’m very pushy. Please let’s stop this, I don’t want to argue.

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            He’s defending you -_-

          • ReviewReviewer

            Oh! Well thanks Earthen.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Because you have no ideas just blurts

          • Spetsnaz

            gun becoming canon

    • Best Indian Tech Support

      Nitpicks:

      No Alola Forms have completely changed the species of an animal: Vulpix is still a fox, Sandshrew is still whatever the hell it is meant to be, heck Exeggutor is still a palm tree

      • EarthenWarrior

        Pangolin

        • Best Indian Tech Support

          I can see it and it’s defo it’s main source of inspiration, but it defo has traces of other animals

          • EarthenWarrior
          • Best Indian Tech Support

            I said I agreed, just that it obviously has other traits thrown in, even if not from other animals

          • EarthenWarrior

            Pangolin and armadillo what else is there

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            I dunno, just generic animal traits. The face and back legs feel like they’ve been mixed in with some generic small mammal features

    • ReviewReviewer

      Other ideas:
      – Lapras; turns into a Water-Ghost type because it gets possessed by the water.
      – Electrode: becomes a Beast Ball.
      – Caterpie Line: Become Grass-Fire due to them starting to populate by volcanoes.

      • Best Indian Tech Support

        -Wut
        -Beast Ball is too recent
        -We’ve seen Caterpillar thrives just fine in Alola tho

        • ReviewReviewer

          UGH! Fine I’ll stop having ideas now.

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            Calm it bruv

            Criticism is a fact of life, this isn’t your echo chamber

          • ReviewReviewer

            What’s so fun about criticism, your ideas just get shattered and you just lose inspiration to do anything.

          • Best Indian Tech Support

            Because it allows you to see flaws in your thinking and improve yourself

            Sadly, some people just won’t see that.

          • ReviewReviewer

            Seriously stop trying to start arguments, it’s not my fault I was born with sensitivity to criticism, it’s a natural flaw. Not a thing to discriminate against.

          • Spetsnaz

            there is a difference between criticism, and constructive criticism

          • SpectralSeraph

            Get you a man who can do both

          • EarthenWarrior

            to tell you you’re no good and its pointless

            So off yourself and maybe the next person you reincarnate into will have original ideas

          • ReviewReviewer

            Not like I take you that serious you’re just hating my ideas just because I have a Water-Fairy icon.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I hate you regardless

          • ReviewReviewer

            I’ sorry

      • Spetsnaz

        lapras could make sense, considering they believe the water to be a living thing in a lot of island cultures. electrode could either be an experiment by aether, or even just the mega?

        • SpectralSeraph

          I don’t really see these, especially Lapras. I feel like a few other designs would work well! Like water/grass

          • Spetsnaz

            i think it was jwittz, had a video about alola forms, i liked his fire/water lapras idea. and grass could work, rather than ice, it adapted to the warmer area and started growing plants on its back

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah :3, basically

          • ReviewReviewer

            JWitzz would probably want a Hoppip form.

          • EarthenWarrior

            now that kinda stuff irks me

            Now i can easily see how vegetation could grow on a Larpras’s shell but some kinda transformation must occur because it wouldn’t become a plant just by merely by letting plants grow on it

    • Spetsnaz

      cloyster becoming a pure water mollusc to fit in better with local marine life, to better hunt, is a good idea.
      kingler could have been counter to crabrawler.
      jynx could have been cool hula dancers, helping welcome people, using psychic powers to put lei’s on people coming off the planes (as airport works do in real Hawai’i)
      Mr Mime, i would have to see artwork
      kangaskhan could have armor of dried magma, some burns from before it cooled all the way, better defense in Alola.
      clefable, again i would have to see artwork and such
      but al lthings considered, could have been viable 🙂

      • EarthenWarrior

        What if Kangaskan became part Dragon
        but the whole Mega Evolution things kinda prevents anyone with one from having an Alolan Form

        • Spetsnaz

          true, that hadn’t even crossed my mind

        • ReviewReviewer

          They should just make the baby in Kanghaskhan’s pouch a Pokemon, I mean why can we hatch a mother with a baby immediately, that’s stupid.

      • ReviewReviewer

        Some good ideas!

  • ReviewReviewer

    Please Fomantis, be shiny!

  • Best Indian Tech Support

    Just quickly nipped back in before leaving for the holidays to say this

    Seraph Araquanid is a fucking monster 10/10 would catch five more and do a monoaraquanid run

    • ReviewReviewer

      I’m glad unlike Ariados they didn’t make it look like a real spider, I have arachnophobia yet I think the Araquanid line is cool.

    • The Festival Kuppo

      May the araquanid force be with you

    • SpectralSeraph

      I TOLD YOU!!!!!
      I HAVE BROUGHT YOU TO THE ARAQUANID SIDE!!!!

      • Best Indian Tech Support

        Ehh I was already kinda leaning there, you just pushed me in :p

        • SpectralSeraph

          YAS!! INTO THE WATER BUBBLE!

          • EarthenWarrior

            i wonder if the Water bubble is self contained with some kind of mucus or it itself is a large glob of gel like substance

            like if you ran a knife through it would it cut parts off or merely glide through

          • SpectralSeraph

            Honestly? I picture… this is gonna sound dumb… like almost gel, but not quite
            Like the knife would sink in and come out, but it would be a bit sli-
            Oh wait cannonically it is made of just flat out water

          • EarthenWarrior

            my best theory is referring it to a gelatin mold
            that you probably hack off pieces of it

            or it has very thin hairs that it uses to hold the water in place

  • ReviewReviewer

    Why won’t Niantic release anything actually new instead of just painting a new coat of paint ugh.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Because it’s Niantic

  • ReviewReviewer

    Honestly I shouldn’t start up fights it’s break and I’d rather keep a healthy, good image instead of making enemies so I’m sorry Indian Tech Support and Earthen for harassing you two forgive my underdeveloped brain and my unnecessary existence.

    • Best Indian Tech Support

      Please stop with the guilt trip

      But if that’s your genuine belief about yourself, get help

      • ReviewReviewer

        I’m genuinely saying sorry please accept it I don’t want to make enemies.

        • Best Indian Tech Support

          There was no need for the self depreciation though

          • ReviewReviewer

            OK I’m sorry about that. As long as you’re not being offended by my hair-trigger temper I’m relieved.

  • ReviewReviewer

    Between Fomantis and Lurantis, which of the two has a much better shiny? I mean that by saying which of them get a bigger change.

    • tsareena

      • ReviewReviewer

        As much as I adore Tsareena i’m a bit sad they didn’t make it all violet-isa.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Hmmmmm Golisopod

      • ReviewReviewer

        I guess that’s Fomantis’s second evolution secretly hidden. You probably need to feed it a berry that increases its speed.

  • SpectralSeraph

        • That’s the least of his problems tbh. His girlfriend turned into his son so

          • ReviewReviewer

            How did that happen?!

          • EarthenWarrior

            something involving him merging his dna with her and she shape shifted into a womb and gave birth to his son but at the same time sacrificing her physical body

          • SpectralSeraph

            DAMNIT YOU SPOILED SOMETHING I WAS GOING TO POTENTIALLY WATCHHHHH

          • Its not a spoiler Greg explains it in the second episode

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh… welp
            Anyways, I think I’ll watch it once my schoolwork dies down a bit

          • All I gotta say is its a slow start. You gotta be patient. it may take a while to really get hooked because like, the beginning episodes aren’t that great. Don’t skip em though. Everything builds on eachother.

          • SpectralSeraph

            I saw episode 1.. and I heard it’s like that. About how long does it take before it becomes a beautiful regigigas and leaves the slow start

          • Episode 11(?) The one called Giant Woman is great. Mirror Gem and Ocean Gem (25?) is a two part special and is really good, then it takes a bit but the episode Alone Together(37) is great. So is Warp Tour(36). But then Rose’s Scabbard (45) Onward its great. It dips a bit in the middle of season 2 but once you enter season 3 its at its height

          • also keep me updated on your reactions :3

          • SpectralSeraph

            So it takes to around season 2?

          • Yeah but its worth it. Season 1 still is amazing though half way through. Season 1 for some reason is 50 episodes long (only 10 minutes each though) but all others are 25 episodes so its weird. But yeah dont go into it thinking its going to suck all the way until Season 2 because there is alot of good to it. Cat Fingers gets surprisingly dark btw

          • SpectralSeraph

            I’m gonna hope I can do it

          • EarthenWarrior

            ITS BEEN OUT FOR YEARS BUTTMUNCH GET WITH THE TIMES AND WATCH IT

    I got some good ideas for Pokemon evolutions/prevolutions for the new Alolan ones

    Mimikyu:
    Pre-Evo: Copimi
    Typing: Fairy
    Appearance: Extremely cute version, so cute that people cannot get their eyes off it easily.
    Dex Entry: Upon evolving, Copimi loses its charm and cuteness due to the Dusk Stone sending horrific vibes through its innocent soul.
    How to evolve: Use a Dusk Stone.

    Pyukumuku:
    Evo; Cucumbrrgh
    Typing: Ice-Water
    Appearance: Larger, squishier version. Spikes become frozen, and its top of its body gets a thin sheet of snow.
    Dex Entry: Cucumbrrgh are known to live amongst tribes by cooler regions of the seas. It has been said that they are mass-populated in regions by Mt. Coronet in Sinnoh.
    How to evolve: Using an Ice stone.

    Drampa:
    Pre-Evo; Kidragon
    Typing: Dragon
    Appearance: Very young; eyes visible. Tiny eyebrows and has a pure aqua colour scheme.
    Dex Entry: Kidragon are known to get along best with Dratini and Jangmo-o. Sometimes, Kidragon also tries to fly, however due to its bone structure it is impossible for it to.
    How to evolve: Level it up to lvl 45.

    Ribombee:
    Evo; Bowbeille
    Typing; Fairy-Bug
    Appearance; two bows attached on its elegant antennas; colours are a match of brown and yellow. Wings are the shape of hearts.
    Dex Entry: When in harm, Bowbeile unties its bows to create two large whips. It scares off ramped Ariados by threatening them and gobbling up young Spinaraks.
    How to evolve: Level it up to lvl.50.

      No

      • SpectralSeraph

        Copimi sounds like it discovers rule 34 in order to evolve

        • ReviewReviewer

          Copimi = Copy + Me. It’s basically the opposite of Mimikyu.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Ehhhh, not a fan… I don’t see how it’s copying anything in its description

          • ReviewReviewer

            It hypnotizes people by its cuteness and tells them what to do.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            The only gen 7 mon that needs an (pre) evolution is Turtonator

          • ReviewReviewer

    Oh my god. I just learned Gengar doesn’t get Sludge Wave via TM. It was a special move in Gen 5 (via dreamworld) and an event in Gen 6

    *facepalm*

    • ReviewReviewer

  • Ultron

    Looks like a fight happened and I missed it?

  • Ultron

    Has anyone changed the appearance of their festival plaza castle yet? I want to know what the options are.

  • SpectralSeraph

    Random question
    Out of all the gens, which took you the longest to get used to all of its designs?? Like for me it was gen 5 cause I felt weird even calling some of the pokemon, pokemon
    Doesn’t mean they’re bad, I liked a lot of mons I felt that way toward

    • Ultron

      Gen 6. Still hate a lot of them

      • SpectralSeraph

        Gen 6 I got used to quick (Probably due to the amount, lol)
        About Gen 6… how do you feel towards its dragons?

        • Ultron

          Noivern is cool although never used it. Goodra is okay, I guess? I’m not necessarily a fan, but I don’t hate it either. Love Dragalge. Tyrantrum is cool too. Zygarde is amazing, one of my favorite legends.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Every one of those opinions is correct, 100% agree

          • Ultron

            You get me

          • SpectralSeraph

            😀

    • The Festival Kuppo

      I hated gen 5 monstruo at first, butacas then I realizad how awesome they are. Now my fav mon is from Gen 5

      • SpectralSeraph

        I can definitely support
        Which mon? I feel stupid asking XD

        • The Festival Kuppo

          Chandelure

          • SpectralSeraph

            That is a good choice

          • The Festival Kuppo

            I didnt choiced it, it choiced me

          • SpectralSeraph

            Band? Scarf? Specs?

          • The Festival Kuppo

            *choosed* my english is pathetic -_- .I prefer specs btw

          • Ultron

            It would just be choose

          • The Festival Kuppo

            My english teacher would be so dissapointed with me 🙁

          • Ultron

            Honestly you’re not bad.

          • The Festival Kuppo

            Well, thanks! 😀

          • SpectralSeraph

            Sorry, just a joke

          • Ultron

          • The Festival Kuppo

            Same

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Caught a 4IV Ditto on my first Recycle method try. Good start imo

  • TheNintendoChip

    Off topic, but I got to go back to my high school to see my old teachers. It was really nice!
    Yesterday I went to a ceremony to receive my IB Diploma (because we don’t get them at graduation :/), and we were told so many times that we couldn’t go see our teachers afterwards. I still went anyways (oooh what a rebel), and talked to teachers from like 10:30 to 3:30. Then I went back today and did the same thing 🙂

  • Chaos

    Anyone available to help with a quick trade evolution?

          • Chaos

            Ok, Kris right?

          • Ultron

            Do you want it to learn shadow punch? I’m guessing no?

          • Chaos

            Sorry. Wasn’t paying attention. No. it’s not needed.

            Thank You very much.

          • Ultron

            No problemo

  • SpectralSeraph

    WARNING: STAY OFF SMOGON UU RIGHT NOW
    Because of usage…. Kyurem-Black, Keldeo, and Scizor are freely roaming the lands of UU at this moment, I repeated STAY AWAY FROM IT

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      ARE YOU SERIOUS SDJKDSKJJKSDKJ STOP I HATE SMOGON

      • SpectralSeraph

        I kid you not, I saw my team all viable in UU besides Nihilego, went in expecting easy wins… and instantly was greeted to two teams in a row of this shit

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          omg where can you see the tiers?

          • SpectralSeraph

            They’re not available yet, but if you make a team, certain things may be banned

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            @smogon: r u d e

    • The Festival Kuppo

      KELDEO IN UU!!!??? HOWS THAT POSSIBLE? ?

      • SpectralSeraph

        More interesting
        Kyurem Black who has 170 Attack and Scizor are roaming about… I’m just as shocked as the rest of you

        • The Festival Kuppo

          Bizarre…

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah… it’s spoopy

    • Chaos

      I dunno how many times I have to say this, but tiers are not finalised this quickly. Gen 7 only started month ago.

  • SpectralSeraph

    I actually had the most clutch game I have ever had in my life today

  • SpectralSeraph

    Alolan Exeggutor gets an OU analysis
    Araquanid doesn’t
    Okay Smogon, you’re funny

    • Chaos

      Dude, chill the game only been out a month. Everything can’t be done instantly, it takes time. Maybe somebody was available to do one for Exeggutor and no one picked Araquanid yet.

      • SpectralSeraph

        No I mean… they actively skipped over it
        And Alolan Exxegutor is TRASH

        • Chaos

          Not completely it’s a good Trick Room Pokemon. And Araquanid isnt that great in 6v6 singles. It does well in Battle Tree and 3v3 Battle Spot.

          • SpectralSeraph

            I use Araquanid in singles, it puts in a LOT more work than you’d expect, and I have gotten plenty of people to agree
            A-Egg honestly doesn’t seem worth it

          • Chaos

            Fair enough, personally I’ve found it quite lack lustre in singles. And I’ve found it pretty easy to handle when used against me.

            I agree it’s a monster in the Battle Tree though.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Cause it takes timing to use
            Once you figure out when to send it in and how much it can actually bulk, you will know
            It’s not that common to find a water type that can bait in Xurkitree and kill it afteralll :3

            In fact, in a game where only my Araq was left on less than half health, it killed a Ash Greninja and a Mega Alakazam… the latter it fought at 30% left :3

          • Chaos

            I don’t doubt what it can do under the correct circumstances. I just find it quite lacklustre overall in a 6v6 battle.

            Obviously I can only speak from my own experiences.

          • SpectralSeraph

            I can tell you, as a person that uses it on all of his competitive teams this gen, that as long as it has a bit of support, it will BODY anything in its path

          • Chaos

            Don’t worry I’ve got one trained up in-game as well. Used it to good effect to grind BP at the Battle Tree.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Works weirdly well with Komala

    • ReviewReviewer

      I never trusted them anyways.

    • The Festival Kuppo

      Heh… aquaranid would Still dominate wathever tier list he is…. unless its UU

      • Chaos

        UU the home of Bulky Water Types.

            Do you have shinies to offer for it? That might make it more enticing for some

      • Chaos

      • I like you

        • Armaggedon16

          Same

      • Ultron

        I would say that Trumbeak is a combo of a woodpecker and a toucan. However, they should’ve just picked one as the inspiration for the line.

        • SpectralSeraph

          A Woucan

        • Armaggedon16

          Toucannon should have been a separate Pokémon and trumbeak shouldn’t even exist. It’s a horrible attempt to bridge Pikipek and Toucannon together, pikipek has such a great design but they really messed up it’s evos

          • THIS

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    one time i read a comment that really made me sad:
    ” Since when competitive pokemon became a game of switching”

    • SpectralSeraph

      Lol

      Also, I didn’t know you could use items in competitive!! (Jk lol)

    • The Festival Kuppo

      Since it was rumored that pokemon would come to the Nintendo Switch

    • always?

    • Chaos

      Competitive Pokemon is about outplaying your opponent. And sometimes that requires excessive switching. Especially when both players are really good.

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        i know! the dude was like ” well i play an offensive type of way and never switch and usually” and I was like you only play with casual players huh and he was like ” yeah”

        • MenacingCascoon

          Not switching is only good for like a turn, for the surprise. After that it gets predictable and you lose

          • SpectralSeraph

            I like to mix things up, so I switch and don’t switch sometimes, and I know my timing

          • Chaos

            I play exactly like this. Sometimes when it’s so obvious I should switch and I don’t just to get a surprise KO…best feeling in the world, especially the rage quit that follows.

          • SpectralSeraph

            😀
            Except for when new players screw it up by a making impossibly idiotic plays that screw you

    Question
    Does Mold Breaker ignore Disguise?

  • ReviewReviewer

    I guess I have to just hatch a stupid shiny.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Like everybody else

      • ReviewReviewer

        The thing is, that it then fills up stupid space.

        • Better release or wondertrade all the extras… (and if you wondertrade you will need to release all the trash later, too)

          • ReviewReviewer

            Why can’t we group-release?

          • 1. Put all the rejects on pokebank
            2. Move rejects from pokebank to a game you’re gonna reset anyway
            3. Reset that game.

            :p

          • ReviewReviewer

            Uh, Pokemon Bank isn’t compatible with S/M yet.

          • I know, but when it is, you can do this.

          • … any cosmog?

          • if you dont I’ll take the Type:Null

          • ReviewReviewer

            Yes i definitely do have a Cosmog.

    • TheNintendoChip

      Wow, I guess I have to work for something I want ~~

      • ReviewReviewer

        I did do that for 3 of my shines, it’s too tiring. RE is also taking too much time and I assumed a dirty shiny would have easier access.

        • MenacingCascoon

          Whaaaat? It takes time and energy to keep getting something you want? That’s kinda incredible

          • ReviewReviewer

            Oh, stop being so sarcastic, you have no idea how torturous it was to take a Mareanie shiny, Dhelmise shiny and Popplio. Plus it’s torturously hard to delete them all, so it’s a forgivable thing for me to be lazy.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Why did you delete them?
            (Plus you only hunted for maybe a week each. Try months for one shiny)

          • sitting here at 3-4 months for buneary and 3 months for an unsuccessful Treeko

          • MenacingCascoon

            There you go. You gotta be persistent. That’s the point to shiny hunting. But hey if you feel you deserve one time to yourself that’s then go for it! We all have our lazy days

          • ReviewReviewer

            I really need it quick because if I get it, then I’ll have a full shiny team. And Mareanie traumatized me so I want to skim around the traumatic experiences.

          • ReviewReviewer

            Because they used up precious space.

        • Why dont you do what I do and just watch Youtube and browse tumblr or something while hunting?

          • ReviewReviewer

            I’ll try.

      Wait is this Pokespe?

      • SpectralSeraph

        The site?

    • ReviewReviewer

      Looks ugly.

      • SpectralSeraph

        Please don’t ruin my dreams like this

  • If it’s possible, what 6 Pokemon would cover the most weaknesses on Type alone?

    I’d assume that means 6 Dual type pokemon, each without a clashing type, the question is, which?

    • Ice/ice/Ice/ice/Ice/ice

    • Chaos

      Hydreigon
      Metagross
      Alolan Marowak
      Tapu Bulu
      Gyarados
      Swampert

  • MenacingCascoon

    Speaking of lazy days, I think I may take up PKhex this year. There’s so many pokemon I want to use and simple breeding takes so much time I won’t have time to use them all. But Im scared I may get banned online by GF. What do you guys think? Should I risk it? Try not to use morals. #Hypocrite

  • TheXmasMonster6893

    So I’m prepping a Smeargle to use for Shiny hunting in SOS battles. The one site I saw said that the best move set for this is Recover, Recycle (with a Leppa berry on board), False Swipe (obviously), and Icicle Spear. I get the first 3, but why Icicle spear? Is there a specific reason for that or is it just a move in general to use in that last spot?

    • Chaos

      Maybe for Sturdy Pokemon.

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Maybe. Otherwise I can’t think of a reason it’d HAVE to be that move and not just some other move that works well.

        • Chaos

          Honestly that’s the only reason I can think of. Otherwise, yeh pretty much any offensive move works.

    • Ultron

      Uhhh why recycle without switcheroo? I’d say get rid of recover for that. Also, I’d recommend nature’s madness or super fang over icicle spear

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Because recycle will give me back my Leppa berry so I can recover PP for the moves I use to knock out the extra Pokemon Why would I want to give my berry to the opponent when I need it? lol

        • Ultron

          I was thinking so they don’t struggle. I’d probably get rid of icicle crash for quick attack or something though. I’m guessing icicle crash is so you can kill them and switch out so they don’t struggle

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            Yeah I’ll likely give it something else that can be more useful. I’m not gonna be hunting anything with Sturdy for now so it’s not a problem. As for the struggle I’m just gonna keep an eye on them. I’ll kill the longer staying one after a while and switch to a new one before they can even get to the point of Struggling. lol

  • I had a nightmare that my 3ds broke last night. alot less good then the other dream I had where I found a giant majestic deer laying down in the forest and he became my best friend

    • ReviewReviewer

      I keep having scary dreams of my 3ds being scratched.

  • ReviewReviewer

    Holy cow…I just deleted over 8 boxes of Mareanie.

    • ReviewReviewer

      I got the:
      – Masada Method (Japanese and my game Formantis)
      – Shiny Charm
      – Oval Charm

      Chances must be in the ~300s-600s.

      Really like to hang out = at least 5x more eggs.

      I got the jackpot!

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      I wish there was a way to delete a full box of Pokemon or at least a full line. It’d make things way easier to get rid of full boxes like that lol

      • ReviewReviewer

        I know right, it’s so tedious!

  • Ultron

    Ghost/fairy is one of the best typings.

    Unrelated: what if playing the game entirely in the rules of inverse battling was an option. Would you try it?

    • MenacingCascoon

      To make my ice types amazing?? Yes

      • Ultron

        It would actually make the game much more challenging. I would def try it. Probably lose my sanity though

        • SpectralSeraph

          I nuzlocked Volt White 2…. and won

          • MenacingCascoon

            Challenge mode?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yes

          • MenacingCascoon

            I don’t believe you! There hasn’t been anyone to do it. You must have overlleveled

          • SpectralSeraph

            I mean…. I did have to alter one tiny rule… I had to use the “it’s not over until everything dies” rather than simple if you white out it is over
            I ended up whiting out twice, once at the end of Victory road, and once to the final trainer of the aftergame

          • MenacingCascoon

            Ah. that’s still good. I play by that rule when I nuzlocke. When I get my laptop I will try to nuzlocke it to

          • Ultron

            Like on an emulator?

          • MenacingCascoon

            Yea. Why?

          • Ultron

            I didn’t know you could do emulators on a computer 😛

          • boi…

          • Ultron

            I kinda want to try a nuzlocke but not on one of my copies. Maybe I could do an emulator. Do you have to download anything?

          • yeah

          • SpectralSeraph

            Anyways
            I wasn’t going to… .until the incident that would have ended my locke happened….

            Victory road, my starter (Who was level 99 cause I always used him more than anything else, over leveled but only he was) was the only thing alive
            Rival Battle, the last battle in the road
            I kill all his mons in one hit, beside one….
            A bouffalant that lives on LITERALLY 1 HP WITHOUT A SASH, HEAD CHARGES ME AND KILLS ME WHILE KILLING HIMSELF

          • MenacingCascoon

            Your starter was level 99? Lol so you were over leveled. But that sounds very stressful. I couldn’t even beat Y nuzlocke after two attempts. I probably won’t get far in VW

          • SpectralSeraph

            Only the starter was because he had to take experience as everything else started dying left and right
            And I was overleveled by around ten levels

    • ReviewReviewer

      Never

    • Chaos

      Ghost/Normal and Dark/Fairy are also really good typings.

      • Ultron

        Yeah those would be cool.

  • The Holiday Kurusu
    • Chaos

      What is that U-Turn Minior? Kind of defeats the purpose of setting up.

      • The Holiday Kurusu

        Minior’s now getting the boot it has been one hit KO’d twice now so I’ll find some one better

        • Reece

          Shell Smash Minior w Acrobatics (no item obvs or White Herb), Stone Edge & EQ works well
          Also Lum Berry Mimikyu is good as you can essentially set up a free SD then pair that with Play Rough, Shadow Claw & Shadow Sneak. Lum Berry is for statuses as they can go through Disguise

  • i dont like Formantis much

    • Chaos

      Didn’t like it from the beginning.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Neither do I

      • I’m also hunting it for a baby Nebby so its all worth it

    • Ultron

      Fomantis* Like faux mantis

      I don’t like it either. Lurantis is nice though.

    • MenacingCascoon

      I like it actually. I really like Lurantis too but unfortunately I was misled by the Lurantis Trial. When I saw Lurantis on the trial thing, it looked huge, and I loved it, and I really wanted to use it. But was I saw life size I was so mad. Also Lurantis stats are so awful. I will use it battle one day, but Idk where to start

  • EarthenWarrior

    Tries to regain battling confidence
    Somehow a Gigalith survived a Life Orb Liquidation one match and Ash-Greninja’s bullshit the other

    • ReviewReviewer

      lol

      • EarthenWarrior

        Fuck you

        • ReviewReviewer

          Sorry I didn’t know you were actually that upset

          • EarthenWarrior

            Why wouldn’t I be upset
            I HATE LOSING

  • ReviewReviewer

    Welp, it’s time for my journey to get a shiny Lurantis.

  • Ultron

    I feel like Cosmoem is the most pointless pokemon ever. It’s hardly in the story. They could’ve just gone cosmog into the title legend

    • ReviewReviewer

      That’s why Cosmoem was barely shown.

      • Ultron

        Then why does it exist

        • ReviewReviewer

          It’s a buffer zone between baby and beast, like the bug Pokemon’s interspecies and Salamanca’s ball form.

  • ReviewReviewer

    If you use a master ball on a UB will it break open and shatter your dreams?

  • EarthenWarrior

    This makes 5 losses in a row all because of Tapus and Necro

  • The Holiday Kurusu

    Almost the biggest comeback of my life

    http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/battle-gen7ou-504190059

  • EarthenWarrior

    Fuck my life, my team does not work against anything not native to Alola

  • EarthenWarrior

    9 losses I’m cutting myself because Showdown just had to let other Pokemon be in OU,

      • EarthenWarrior

        HOW WOULD YOU FEEL WITH THIS CONSTANT SENSE OF FAILURE
        my only victory of the night was a forfeit by default

        • I would do something else like draw or watch youtube

          • EarthenWarrior

            that does not satisfy the ever gaping ho,e in my being that only the feel-goodness that victory and confidence bring

            Now I just feel like biting a chunk out of my arm because I’m stupid enough to think a Alola Native team fairs well against the constant crap of OU

          • Well dont hurt yourself over it

          • EarthenWarrior

            But that’s what I do, I have literally nothing to feel good after losing
            But with that being said
            http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7monotype-504201560

          • Please stop. You scare me so much Earthen seriously

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well I’m a fucking loser with absolutely no follow back when like this, no genuine happiness or other hobbies that aren’t mindless busywork

            Only victory is what makes me feel good and that only happens in a blue moon

          • You are in just this self sustaining cycle of i cant do this because im miserable and im miserable so I dont want to do this. Like just start writing. Read a book, watch a new TV show or movie. Find a new hobby, just something because you can’t always win and you are always just miserable

          • EarthenWarrior

            None of those satisfy my needs, I haven’t felt true satisfaction in literally ever because the all consuming void of my life inches wider by the second

          • Because you never try anything. Thats the thing! You dont write you dont do anything! I dont know how else to tell you that! You are just going to stay angry and sad until you decide you want to fix it

    • ReviewReviewer

      Or just sue the petunias out of the Showdown moderators.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I would if I could
        So many times I asked for a non-legends ladder

      Hey Earthen, wanna hear something funny?
      Cause of usage Kyurem Black and Keldeo are in UU right now.. Not even kidding

    I hope that in the sequel for Sun and Moon (Stars), the following happen:

    – Cynthia plays a bigger role.

    – Dexio and Sina return along with Sycamore.

    – News about Lillie.

    – Aether Foundation reforming, and turning themselves into the Global Pokemon Protectionist Agency (GPPA).

    – New leader of the Aether Foundation; Gladion (has an altered design, hair smoother, wears white clothes, slightly happier).

    – Dawn from the anime makes an appearance (game Dawn is silent)

    – New battle thing called the Battle Islands, 6 unique islands of different leaders with challenges (Rock, Water, Grass, Fairy, Ice, Dark, Poison)

    – Introduction of new Pokemon and Megas (~35 new Pokemon, 20 Megas)

    • – Probably won’t happen
      -Probably won’t happen
      -yep
      -Probably won’t happen
      -Probably won’t happen
      -FOR SURE WONT HAPPEN
      – lol no

      • ReviewReviewer

        Well, surely Cynthia would, I mean it would be super fun.

    • SpectralSeraph

      1. Nope, she would have this game
      2. Maybe Dexio and JOHN SINA!! DOO DOO DOO DOOO!!! But not Sycamore
      3. Referenced perhaps
      4. Nah
      5. DOUBT IT
      6. About as likely as portal 3
      And no for the last two

    Also how the heck will catching Arceus work in Gen 4 remakes lol when you can just use your two lvl 100 Mystery Gift Arceuses on it.

  • woah its a shiny not really lollll

    • Ithsme

      What’s the hunt for?
      I’m 5 boxes into Rowlet.

      • Fomantis for @Mega_Azumarill:disqus

        • Ithsme

          Oh, that’s nice.

          I’m pulling an all nighter to hunt for Rowlet, I need to end it as soon as possible. I need to prevent this from becoming another turtwig at all costs.

        • ReviewReviewer

          Yep

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    Tea Time! Lusamine has the best team among villianous leaders, Cyrus comes close too

  • Wes

    Can anyone spare a Prankster Sableye? Nature/Ball doesn’t matter; I only need the ability.
    I can offer Love Ball Fomantis, Moon Ball Cubone, Love Ball Stufful, Love Ball Bounsweet, Friend Ball Beldum, or Moon or Love Ball Vulpix.

    • Wes

      *edited, I meant spare, not share. Sorry for the confusion.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Burn them all

      • Wes

        That’s the idea. 😉

        • EarthenWarrior

          no burn all the Sableye
          A Pokemon of such a weak stature should not possess such game breaking abilities at priority

          • Wes

            I know. I’m familiar with your hate for it. They’re evil, but I’ve got no problem using that evil myself.

    • Ithsme

      I can’t right now, but I plan to hunt for one relatively soon. When I get one I can give you one if you haven’t gotten one already.

      • Wes

        Thanks! I might get bored and search tomorrow, but I’ll keep your offer in mind. If I get one first would you like one?

        • Ithsme

          That’d be great, thank you! I don’t know when I’d hunt if you don’t, it all depends on how cooperative these Rowlets are.

  • Whelp… Fomantis just struggled to death. The end

    • Ithsme

      Rip in peace fake bug thing

      • Whelp.. no nebby for me ;-;

        • Ithsme

          Now you can put something else in your bag, free space

    • EarthenWarrior

      it was weak and deserved to die

      No thanks

    I need more

    • EarthenWarrior

      these fan dubs made me puke

        Most do to me as well, but I’m actually fine with this Guzma voice…

        (Remember all the Undertale ones? Yeah, those were disgusting)

        • EarthenWarrior

          like what i liked some of those Undertale Shorts

    So far I am done with coloration, lines, and the background for the Marshadow drawing. All I need to do now is details, so @SpectralSeraph expect it in the next few days for it to be finished!

      😀 YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAS!!!!

      • Golden_Monferno

        I hope you don’t mind the length it’s taking to make it, I’ve been pretty busy and have been trying to put in a lot of effort into this one. 😰

        • SpectralSeraph

          It’s fine!! I’ll love it regardless im sure <3!!!

    • Why does it take so long for you to make one drawing? Just curious

      • Golden_Monferno

        As for this one, I’ve just been busy all week for Christmas and stuff, so I haven’t had enough time to work on it. Usually I doesn’t take this amount of time, typically about 3 days at the max.

    i want more 3 stage evolution lines for Gen 8

    • Sasha Nekosune

      what about the rumors of pokemon stars and that it might feature more pokemon? we could get those there, along with wanted evolutions to certain pokemon.

    Grrrraaaghhhh i’m so bored…..i want to play a link between worlds but i haven’t turned my 3DS off in nearly a month

    • MelloMori

      And that’s a problem how? You can certainly save pokemon and if it needs a charge find an outlet to plug it into. Personally not a fan of the game, but go enjoy yourself. Personally I’m trying to come down from the Hype of FF14’s equivalent of blizz con right now.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Well i’ve been wanting to play something else for a while but nothing is sticking
        Played Skyward Sword
        Pokemon Sun
        Minecraft
        and now i want to play either a Link between worlds and i’m considering breaking out Rare Replay on the Xbone and playing Banjo Kazooie
        Or i could just suck it up and buy the Fallout 4 Nukaworld DLC but whats the point
        NOTHING IS FILLING THE VOID

        • MelloMori

          Ehh, its just the holiday burn out talking. Play what’s fun and enjoy yourself. Though honestly I’ll take your word with fallout being good. I could never get into it. Same with Skyrim, but to a much lesser extent.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I just don’t find myself enjoying anymore

            I’ve been slowly seeing it as just something to occupy my day until i’m called for work or responsibilities until i decide to go to bed or the sweet release of death

            i mean i’m playing by myself and nobody has a passing interest in my games so that hurts

          • MelloMori

            I fell ya man. Its that time of year and its rough not having gamers that share your interest that play with you. But heck you know that I have plenty of free time to mess around if you ever want to do some wifi battles or mess around with some game on steam.

          • EarthenWarrior

            siiiigh and not to pile it on my stupid youtube channel keeps throwing a few…………unrequited videos of my past

          • MelloMori

            You can always delete those video’s last I checked, and honestly don’t think too much about them. The past is the past. Learn from it, but don’t let it control you or keep you down.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Siiiiiiigh Diane

            That one was the exact opposite of what I like about her…..

            Or am I thinking of 11 point is I just should just try and block her out of memory due to reasons

          • SpectralSeraph

            I know there were a few episodes that were… fanservicey
            I think there was one scene during the raid on that city…. late teens early twenties I think…. It’s been too long since I have seen it last

          • EarthenWarrior

            I can’t watch it anymore……..hurts too much

          • SpectralSeraph

            Hurts too much?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Do I have to spell it out?

          • SpectralSeraph

            I guess

          • EarthenWarrior

            “Hurts too much” “Twisted my Heartstrings”?

          • SpectralSeraph

            I’m starting to get it….

        is really not a nerf (only garchomp gets hurts) but basically you get the speed boost as soon as you mega evolve. So basically you dont need to run protect on mega beedrill

        • SpectralSeraph

          And Sable is nerfed a bit too

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            a little but you do the damage// set up as a regular and then you mega and sweep

          • SpectralSeraph

            True

    • It won’t be cheap when you free yourself from the handicap you set up, and start using your own legendaries.

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        tapu lele queen of OU

        • SpectralSeraph

          I actually hate that damn thing.. despite having two mons for it

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            it is easily the best competitive pokemon aside of pheromosa broken self with should be banned asap

          • SpectralSeraph

            I hope they both get banned…
            I actually find Phero easier to deal with

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            yeah i have a mon that walls her pretty good and is not even a legendary

          • SpectralSeraph

            I have a Comfey :3

      • EarthenWarrior

        Never Legends are cheap crutches that set the bar for competitive standards way too high

          • EarthenWarrior

            I hate you

          • i mean its pretty accurate

          • EarthenWarrior

            This day has just been crap after crap after crap

          • EarthenWarrior

            NEVER THEN ID BE A FUCKING HIPPOCRIT

          • No you wouldn’t you would be smart

          • You are going to a gun fight where everyone else has like military grade guns and you have a 100-year old pistol and you refuse to use anything else

          • EarthenWarrior

            Then I’m just a fucking loser indefinitely

          • SpectralSeraph

            If I can do it, so can you
            I even have a mon I can switch my UB out for to do my team Legend and UB-less

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well it’s easy for anybody else since you don’t have a seething hatred for legends and mythicals
            But me I hate them, I hate using them and I hate fighting them

          • SpectralSeraph

            Honestly? If you expanded your types out more you’d have a MUCH easier time making a team

            I run
            Komala
            Araquanid
            Comfey
            Salazzle
            Magnezone (Mainly as a UB killer)
            Flygon

          • EarthenWarrior

            I fucking had to because all of Alola Pokemon are shit
            Golisopod
            Salazzle
            Lycanroc M
            Oranguru
            Araquanid
            Mudsdale

            But I’m talking about Monotype and psychic is almost 100% legends

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh yeah, I run Mono Bug in Monotype. Scizor is all kinds of work and I tend to get Masquerain sweeps out the ass
            Though I will admit, Lele is ungodly annoying. I honestly just wanna use Pheramosa sometime, but it and Buzzwole don’t exactly provide benefit to my team

          • …boi… what if you played through Zelda Ocarina of Time and only fought with sticks then you got angry with how difficult it was getting. You broke your arm and get pissed when you want to play baseball and you cant catch a ball. How many analogies do I have to come up with?

          • EarthenWarrior

            At least Id fight my way, I rather win with regular Pokemon

            The problem is I’m forced to fight people who use the cheap legends, if i had the opportunity to go where legends are banned then I would but I fucking can’t

          • “Legendary” is just a title. The legends they allow in OU and UU are there because they are competitively equal to the non legends in that tier. I could call Magikarp legendary and that doesn’t make him any better.

            And I’m sorry but saying Nihiligo or Zapdos are on the same level as freaking Arceus is just flat out wrong. They are there for a reason. Just use them. I mean you are okay with using Garchomp who is just a few points away from being on par with Uber legendaries so just do it and stop acting like you are too good for them

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’m SO FUCKING SICK OF PEOPLE SAYING ITS JUST A TITLE WELL IT AINT THEY HAVE BETTER STATS, BETTER MOVES, AND BETTER TYPE COMBOS

          • SO DO PSUDO LEGENDS THOUGH!
            Why are you fine with Garchomp? 600 BST and 700 in Mega form. Yet Nihiligo is sitting at 570 BST. Fucking Celesteela only 570 BST. Your logic is so backwards. it is a legendary. You are going to tell me Phione is a legendary and deserves to be banned?

          • jesus I can’t type. So why do you use psudo legends though*

          • SpectralSeraph

            PHIONE TO UBERS

          • EarthenWarrior

            THERE FUCKING CALLED PSEUDO LEGENDS BECAUSE THEYRE BASICALLY HAVE THE STATS OF LEGENDS

            and every shit stained c*nt says that shitty Phione defense, compare it to its spawn Manaphy with the sheer amount of BS it does with Tail Glow Hydration rests then talk to me

          • So Psudos are okay but not legendaries. How does that make any sense at all? You just said legends have higher stats and all of that so they should ALL be banned but then its okay to have Psudos that are arguably stronger than the UB’s? That makes no sense at all.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I never said they were ok, they’re right behind legends
            But they have prominent weaknesses

          • Every. Single. Freaking. Pokemon. Has. A. Weakness.

            That is literally how battling works in these games

          • EarthenWarrior

            But 4x to them?
            One ice beam and Dragonite and Salamence dead
            One fighting move Tyrainitar dead
            One fairy move on Hydreigon or Kommo-o dead
            The only ones that get a pass is Goodra and Metagross but they’re still on the frail side

            It’s not like super OP Latios and Latias with enough speed and bulk to handle its threats, or Mew doing virtually anything with solid bulk, any of the Kami trio with their high stats, Kyurem Black astonishingly not banned until now for some reason with that 170 attack
            Or the worst of the bunch Paraflinch Jirachi which is systematically against you
            Now we have to deal with all the Tapus getting boosts to already Stab moves and a whole plethora of Ultra Beasts nearly everyone of them cheap in their own way

          • SpectralSeraph

            Kyurem Black is in UU… I’m not even kidding, him and Keldeo are actually in UU

          • SpectralSeraph

            (Due to less usage because of “new toy” syndrome)

          • Ok, yes many of them have 4x weaknesses but still. Just use the legionaries. If they banned legendaries completely do you know what would happen? You would come to find that there are equally annoying pokemon with their own frustrating tricks. Just adapt to the meta and use one of them

          • EarthenWarrior

            No I want to win without resorting to Legends, and I would love that Legends would be banned and people would have to rely on newer Pokemon to win

            But now it’s just stupid retarded thinking that could ever come into fruition

          • Do you not understand how meta games work. Certain pokemon are good for a while. You need to use those mons while also bringing unique ones to the table to catch your opponents off guard and win. Then different pokemon become better. That is how it works. But here you are deciding to limit yourself with non legends. No wonder you are always losing. You have to stop blaming the game and start playing it properly

          • EarthenWarrior

            No it’s what’s overpowered and hard to kill, just look at all the VGC rosters and it hardly changes
            Different Pokemon are never getting better unless they’re designed to overthrow a single part of the meta, in the end it’s always the overpowered that win and I want to do that with Pokemon I want to use but clearly that doesn’t matter when they’re naturally bad compared to overpowered legends

          • Here is the thing though. If you ban the legends… you are only going to get other OP mons that were checked by those legends. You ban those, OP mons checked by the other OP mons. That is how it works

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’d rather have it that way because out of all the Pokemon in the game that aren’t legends, psudos or megas all have exploitable weaknesses that almost any Pokemon can muster, and they won’t be invincible

            Because would you honestly rather have a wide and diverse team instead of the same carbon copy team nearly everyone is using, and are punished because you wanted to play differently

          • It doesn’t matter how much you ban. Pokemon will still rise to the top and teams will become stale and carbon copies. If VGC didn’t ban most legends then they would all be used. But they are banned so you have your kangas and landorouses. Ban them, idk you would have the same 6 others

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well you cannot eliminate tiers but you can try to eliminate what can be used in said tier

            I’m done with this, Legends will always be cheap and I wish for a world with the option to not fight them, but that will never ever come

          • SpectralSeraph

            Nihilego is one of the best UB’s
            Use Guzzlord as a wonderful example ;3

        • You mean perfectly legit choices that you choose to not use just because of some crummy standards or something. You will receive more power and victory if you shed these chains of yours!

          tl;dr: “Come, join the dark side!” -Malco

    • Monkeyfuzz

      What nerf? Don’t they go straight to Mega speed the turn they Mega evolve now?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Yes, which totally ruined Garchomp for me
        Literally every Pokemon I like that got megas got the raw deal

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Oh OK, I prefer regular Garchomp so I didn’t realise. I know alot of what it benefits don’t have their Mega Stones this gen.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Of course everyone prefers regular because that tiny fucking speed drop it didn’t need was its complete and total downfall

            Now they took away the one Mega I can actually use and once be proud of, sun and moon have truly caused me nothing but pain and suffering

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I actually meant I prefer its’ design. Hopefully you can find other things you like, or can at least tolerate using. Or maybe there’s another strategy you can try with Mega ‘chomp, Tailwind or Dragon Dance are all that come to mind atm.

  • EarthenWarrior
  • zess

    Finally after all day and night! My shiny salandit! Shame it’s male though but a shiny is a shiny! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1d59eacf2f1eaa034bd7f3f6defaab5949a35549e73e24645b4a48618ac41ea5.jpg

  • zess

    Now I’m off to get a shiny Delibird before Christmas.

    • EarthenWarrior

      The worst Pokemon ever

      • zess

        Well I’m trying to catch shiny pokemon with a Christmas theme. The shiny salandit I just caught reminds me of the Grinch so Delibird will be Santa and maybe one more but I don’t know yet.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Bah humfairy

  • Tapu Fini just might be my favorite Tapu

    • SpectralSeraph

      I can respect that, it’s my second favorite

      • Is Lele your favorite? because I love her too

        • SpectralSeraph

          Nope, Koko is

          • MelloMori

            Tapu Koko. The right choice, every time.

          • Oh yeah I love Koko. I love all of them other than Bulu really

          • SpectralSeraph

            Koko just wins me over, I love its personality

    • EarthenWarrior

      I just want to take them all and force them through a trash compactor until they’re completely 2 dimensional

  • EarthenWarrior

    Maybe I should invest in a Alolan Muk…I hear that they make effective work on the Tapus

    • zess

      I personally like it it was the main member on my team other than Araquanid helped a lot with the main game at least.

      • EarthenWarrior

        As long as it resists them and hurts them I will welcome it with Welcome arms
        Until other shitty Legends start making its life a living hell

        Necrozma is becoming annoying, this has just been a very bad region for me and it’s just going to get worse and worse

        • zess

          Well since it’s part dark it should resist Necrozma fairly well.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Just why did they give it Stealth Rock…..I truly hate this new generation

    • MelloMori

      Its good against the Tapu’s, but it’ll still struggle against things like Kartana, Celesteela and other UB’s. Though if your Play VGC, run it with Porygon 2 for a trickroom setup and its a pretty hard fight to counter.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I say go for it, though that’s because I really like it.

  • What are some good status pokemon?

    • Ultron

      Klefki

  • SpectralSeraph

    Tbh, I feel like the most… toxic new mons are…

    Pheromosa
    Tapu Lele
    Celesteela
    Kartana
    And POSSIBLY Bulu, but I need a bit more testing

    • EarthenWarrior

      Bulu definitely
      Boosted Horn Leech, free stackable leftovers and just very tanky so it must have its neck slit and a fist jammed down their throat

      • SpectralSeraph

        I honestly am debating it because it isn’t exactly terribly hard to counter.. just annoying to switch in on

        • EarthenWarrior

          Hard to counter? you need a fire flying or poison to make a dent in it
          The only definable counter is Salazzle

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah, that isn’t so bad since sludge bomb basically slaughters it and there are other counters to it…

            Lele however is a whole different story

          • EarthenWarrior

            Nothing can get remotely close to it
            You’d need a Sand Rush Excadrill to hurt or Choice Alolan Dugtrio

          • SpectralSeraph

            Lele is, in my personal opinion, MUCH worse than Pheromosa.. I have zero clue why Pheromosa is considered worse.. it hits hard but is an extremely easy kill. Hell, it is downright completely useless at times. Lele is consistently useful and basically screams “busted”

          • EarthenWarrior

            One conjoined word
            U-Turn
            Put on Choice Band and it can U-Turn in and out as it pleases
            Also those jerks let it have Ice Beam

          • SpectralSeraph

            Hmmmm
            I still think Lele is worse though… At least priority kills Phero

          • EarthenWarrior

            I just hate them all

          • SpectralSeraph

            Just pick up a Comfey and watch the rage quitters

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It’s a Fairy, so it’s unlikely to say the least.

          • SpectralSeraph

            I know

          • Monkeyfuzz

            They must have other counters available, Scizor?

          • SpectralSeraph

            For Lele? You can’t bullet punch it due to psychic terrain and it just runs HP fire nowadays

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I forgot Fairy resists Bug for no reason. Is Metagross a possibility? With Meteor Mash, also can benefit from leftover Psychic Terrain.

  • Ok so I’m for sure using Alolan Marowak its so good

    • in Stars I mean

    • SpectralSeraph

      Ahhhh Alolan Marowak. The pokemon raised to OU because “HEY GAIS IT KILLS TAPUS AND UBS”

  • EarthenWarrior

    Fucking angry insomnia I cannot sleep

  • Okay I think I made a few bad choices here but yay I did good! I think I have a team here!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      What does Fake Out on Raichu do for it? (I know what the move actually does.)
      Would Grass Knot be better in its place?
      What is the purpose of Flame Wheel on Marowak? Bonemerang isn’t too reliable is it?

      • Fake Out is really helpful for scouting though I could experiment with Grass Knot.

        Oh dang he gets Earthquake NVM on Bonemerang. Flame Wheel is for Fire STAB

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I mean I guess Bonemerang has some uses, Sash breaking etc, but I think EQ is better. It gets Flare Blitz which is twice as powerful, you could try it with Rock Head and not have to worry about recoil, I’d go with it even if you use Lightning Rod because Flame Wheel imo is too weak.

          • Ehhh but I get too much use out of Lightning Rod as it covers both Mandibuzz and TapuFini.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Well I’d still use FB, you may even last longer as you’ll get more KO’s with it vs Flame Wheel.

    • Armaggedon16

      Replace Flame wheel with flare blitz, flare blitz is way to weak

    • Chaos

      I would swap Fake Out for Grass Knot or Surf on Alolan Raichu. Fake Out doesn’t get much use in singles unless something has a real high attack stat.

      Also Flare Blitz and Earthquake on Marowak.

      I like the Tapu Fini set, but mono water attacking set is easily walled. Change Refresh or Taunt be switched out for Moonblast or something.
