It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Some of you may recognize that as a quote from Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities (1859), but I could think of nothing more apt to describe 2016. For the Pokémon community it was certainly a standout year and perhaps the best we could have hoped for in honor of the series’ 20th anniversary. The rest of the world fared much worse however, and it is hard to overlook the political changes that have no doubt touched many fans across the world.

Pokémon Go

Many doubted that a mobile Pokémon experience, featuring augmented reality no less, could capture the feel of the series and deliver something worth playing—myself included—but the end result was something that would make 2016 the year Pokémon made its comeback.

While not the most avid player myself, there was something definitely surreal about seeing the creatures pop up around me and also made exercise a little more fun. The same ‘Gotta Catch ’em All’ philosophy from the handheld games carried over to the real world and the game was hard to put down if you saw a rare Pokémon lurking nearby.

Hopefully it will find continued success in the next year and keep Pokémon firmly in the spotlight. Can’t hurt to grow the fandom, right?

Pokémon Sun & Moon

Phew. Now we know what it must feel like for a mother to wait 9 months just to see what her baby is going to look like. We were teased mercilessly by PR with new screenshots and trailers, just to know that there were still months away from having the game in our hands.

And how did it do once it was in our hands? Pretty damn well I’d say. Perhaps the thing I enjoyed the most was that Alola feels like the first region to be alive. The Pokémon introduced weren’t too bad either, with Ultra Beasts providing an interesting new angle.

What wasn’t the best? Z-moves. Not a fan, sorry. Especially painful after Mega Evolutions were shelved after just one generation. If I were to run for president, I’d definitely base my campaign on “A Mega Evolution for All”.

PokéJungle

This year was a good one for the site. Another good year; most new generation years are. We hit 20,000 Twitter followers in February of this year and now we end at 32,000. I thank each and every one of you that puts up with me.

I’ll also take a moment to be perfectly honest: running this website is not always easy. In many ways this year was one of my most stressful. I greatly admire people like Serebii, because they can effortlessly (or at least give the appearance of effortlessness) update their site and continue to document every nook and cranny of each Pokémon game that has been released.

I can’t, it is not my specialty. My talents lie in getting people excited for what’s next; what’s here is already dead and gone. Some of you may have noticed that the site posts decreased dramatically in the next month and I suppose I will be honest about why. For some reason I always have spikes in my depression after new games are released. I think it has to do with the emotional investment I put into news coverage pre-launch and then the emptiness of post launch.

Hope to be running again in full speed for 2017. Love you all. PJ.

  • EarthenWarrior

    This year sucked, really really hard

  • RedRat EastGovnah

    I didnt like this year

    • The Holiday Kurusu

      Elections, Not needed Celebrity deaths, and all the sickness

      Not good in deed

  • UnburdenedLegume

    2016 was very meh imo. It started out with Alan Rickman dying and ended with Carrie Fisher & George Michael dying. There were a couple of positive things though, like Sun & Moon and Uncharted 4 but thats about it.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      For me personally it was okay though

  • MelloMori

    Yeah, we all know that this year has been a mixed bag. From the mild sort of seeing the end of a failing console and the growing signs of the death of steam, to the much bigger pains of a very controversial year of politics in the US, and the death of countless people who touched peoples lives, this year could be pretty bitter.

    However I Choose to look at the positives. In this year we’ve scene the resurgence of RPG’s and JRPG’s in gaming, leading a genre that many felt was kinda dying to be embraced. Not only Pokemon, but things like Transformers, Star Trek, Digimon and I think even Yugioh all celebrated huge anniversary’s this year. Fire Emblem, a franchise I probably love more then Pokemon even, has finally been embraced by the masses and has easily become the little brother to pokemon, as it should be. Technology to allow the color-blind see color has become much more readily available. Major medical breakthroughs have been made into dealing with ALS, made better given it came off of the wake of the Ice Bucket challenge that dominated the internet last year. Among countless deaths, we saw the end of Fidel Castro, which was something celebrated by many people. In comics we’ve seen a huge resurgence from DC with its newest reboot, bring back Wally West(Which is one of the main reasons I’ll probably always hate young Justice, but that’s aside the point), as well as re-sparking a love for a lot of these characters that people aren’t that familiar with, namely the blue beetle. And that’s only scratching the surface of a lot of the great things that did happen this year.

    So remember, while this year has been bitter and cold, good did come from it. Its up to us to choose how we remember this year, and how we move forward. Don’t let yourself sink into anger and hate, as that does nothing but spread more misery. Go out and embrace the new year for all the good and bad it might give us.

    • EarthenWarrior

      AWWWWWWWWWWW WHY DID JIBJAB STOP DOING END OF THE YEAR REVIEWS

      • MelloMori

        This ‘JibJab’ is foreign to me. But if you mean stop being optimistic and trying to encourage people to do the same rather then sulking in their own misery and anger like you often do, then Never. Life is far to short to wallow in the muk of despair.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Watch this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ykqaq3KNPsc
          this was the last one they did before they retired

          • MelloMori

            oh that was pretty fun. A shame they don’t make them anymore, but its understandable. People grow older and use things like this as a launch-point for their careers into other things. but thank you for sharing earthen. I’ve been having a rough morning, but you just made it better.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Rough funny,
            Woke up with a neck cramp (Again)
            Crappy early morning losing streak to things i naturally should be better at (IE Electric, Steel, Ground and Ice)
            Stubbed my toe on the counter
            wanged my funny bone in the pantry
            knocked over my favorite bowl (its broken beyond repair)
            and spilled half my breakfast on the stairs
            all before 9AM

          • MelloMori

            Ehh rough. My mornings been a bit rough simply due to my Niece waking me up way too early, then going back to sleep and finding out that my brother ate all of the morning bacon, and then getting sick from some scrambled eggs. Not a big deal though.

            As to the mono team issues though, while that sucks, I suppose its just a sign of the changing metas really. Maybe its time to start thinking about ways to counter the new strategy’s that are becoming common place in monos, like running a Stunfisk(I think that’s how its spelled) for countering Skarmory and Celesteela since both of them go down pretty easily to a good thunderbolt no matter how you build them. Maybe running it with a trickroom Claydoll?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Stunfisk….i should smack you with one
            Stunfisk has base 81 SP Atk that is SHIT (and if you say Camerupt i will also hit you with an Oar)
            Nidoking is the only option because with his amazing speed and the triage of Flamethrower. ice Beam Thunderbolt amplified with Sheer Force make them extremely powerful, like base 117 per shot with Tbolt

            Trick Room is too much trouble since half of my pokemon are speed sweepers and to set it up safely and still have turns to use it is a nightmare,

          • MelloMori

            And yet your losing given the current meta with your speed sweepers, so maybe, just maybe, it means you have to change how you approach a fight in order to win. 81 sp isn’t great, but decent if your planning to use it to counter what I mentioned. As well don’t knock Trickroom. Trick room’s kinda huge right now in the meta since a lot of new pokemon are slow as hell.

            Also feel free to correct me, but isn’t Stunfisk still stronger with those t-bolts with stab over Nidoking with sheerforce. Not trying to start a fight here, but actually asking. Its clearly a good mixed attacker, but really it might be time to rethink how you play Monos. Just the other day you were saying how you constantly lose in this new gen given a lot of your ways of playing from gen 6 don’t really work well against new pokemon. Really it might be time to try something new that doesn’t rely on raw power with some good speed/punk to win, given its rather easy to stall out those kinds of thems.

            Also don’t knock Camerupt. If you were running a trickroom team M-camerupt’s pretty godly with that 20 base speed and being very viable as a physical or special attacker.

          • EarthenWarrior

            you just don’t understand the meta is nothing but stalling and bulk
            and No Stunfisk even with STAB isn’t strong enough because Sheer Force ups the damage
            And you constantly overlook the sheer amount of legends everyone overuses, now everyone has access to the Tapus and UBs which are a total bitch to deal with unless you have their exact counters
            Ground Types have been suffering so much lately, we have no good special sweepers like 3 at best, we have tons of weaknesses that are everyone’s favorites and just nothing gets better

          • SpectralSeraph

            Specs magnezones says hi

          • EarthenWarrior

            please it has fair speed and HP Ice it gets away with lots of things because of sturdy

          • SpectralSeraph

            It literally slaughters both UB-04 variants with HP fire and Thunderbolt

  • The Holiday Kurusu

    Highlights of this year (not in any order):
    -Yo-kai watch 2 Bony Spirits
    -Pokémon Sun and Moon
    -Mario Party Star Rush
    -Kirby Planet Robobot
    -I joined the Jungle (so did many others)
    -Christmas (This is always good)
    -Others I may have forgotten

    • Spetsnaz

      After somebody’s been here a week or two, I forget they just joined, so the usual posters have been here for years in my eyes, I forgot you just joined this year 🙂 glad you did!

    • Ultron

      Kirby is so underrated

  • zess

    This was by far the worst year in my life so far and not just because of the celebrity deaths and political fiascos. Just alot of financial and working issues in general but I’m certainly looking forward to a bright and lucrative New Year in general. So fingers crossed for a good New Year!🙏 (why is there no crossed fingers emoji?)

  • Golden_Monferno

    This year was mostly good in my opinion, I mean sure there have been a lot of celebrity deaths and about US politics, but to be quite honest a lot of good has happened this year for me.For starters, Pokemon GO became a global phenomenon and restored Pokemon back to popularity and Pokemon Sun and Moon were the best games to come out of the franchise. As for me personally, I have found myself to becoming more confident about decisions and what I should do about the future.

    Can’t wait for 2017!

  • TheXmasMonster6893

    As far as Pokemon goes this year was a real banger. Despite it’s faults GO was and at times is still really enjoyable to play around with. Also thanks to the rise in 20th anniversary merch I finally decided to start my own YouTube channel where I open Pokemon card packs. It’s still a slow go, but I hope in 2017 it will continue to grow and I can be more on top of it lol Of course then there’s Pokemon Sun and Moon! Probably the highlight of the year as far as Pokemon stuff goes. Such a great freaking game!!! I can’t wait for next year with the rumors of Stars!! Hopefully we’ll about that officially sooner rather than later lol Finally to end the year FINALLY found my first shiny for the new generation. I missed not having my shiny charm from XY/ORAS, but even without it I was lucky enough to find a shiny Cubone!! Now it’s a Marowak and I love it!! hahaha

    • Golden_Monferno

      Totally agree on this. Both GO and SM were fantastic additions to the Pokemon Franchise.

      Also nice job on finding a shiny Cubone!

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Thanks! It was pretty surprising. I was starting to give up hope that I’d find a shiny before getting my shiny charm, but there it is lol https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1d38a36f6d6e26a385e7fbded8c83375f4bf6cfc82ed85bcdc09670a9f8b6f21.jpg

        • Golden_Monferno

          The Alolan Marowak shiny is definitely one of my favorites

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            It’s SO much better than regular shiny Marowak lol

          • Golden_Monferno

            True, the green isn’t a good coloration for it at all XD

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            I find most Pokemon with green shiny colors look pretty awful. There are a few exceptions, but a lot of them look gross….lol

  • Serenotic

    Why is 6 afraid of 7? Because 7 8 9.

    • EarthenWarrior

      *Gunfire*

      • Serenotic

        Hey, it’s a prediction for next year. Lol

  • Prima-Azuril

    >Pokemon Go
    > Good part of 2016

    Uh no

    • MelloMori

      Pokemon go got a lot of people thinking about pokemon who haven’t in years, led to a lot of people going out side, making conversation with others in their communities, led to a huge sales increase in pokemon games across the board and did lead to a lot of people wanting to at least try pokemon sun and moon.

      While it by no means is the game perfect, it did do some good.

      • Prima-Azuril

        Except the fact Niantic has been involved in a lot of controversy/scandals lately, as recent as the Gen 2 clickbait. Sure there’s a few new GEN 2, but they’re all babies.

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          its not clickbait at all lol

          • Prima-Azuril

            Well it was it said “Gen 2 released” at least they could’ve said “Certain Gen 2 Pokemon released for now”

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            all their announcement said “more pokemon coming” not “Gen 2 Released”

        • MelloMori

          And that’s not really here, nor there. I’m taking about the fact that the product they released did do some good. Is the company great? No, not at all, but they did lead to a pretty big movement for a short period of time and have made something that a lot of people like.

    • Ithsme

      It was a ton of fun for a few weeks.

      • Prima-Azuril

        And then….it went boring.

  • Prima-Azuril

    I get rid of the black plague known as 2016 infested by the Russians, Americans, Niantics, racists, terrorist attacks, celebrity deaths, global warming, Hurricane Matthew, coup d’etat attack in Turkey and the purge, and many MANY other disastrous things with a simple dance in Just Dance 2017 <3 Who know dancing was good for relaxing

  • Spetsnaz

    The site gets better and better every year 🙂 community gets bigger, stronger, and better each year 🙂 can’t wait to see how the site grows next year!

  • SpectralSeraph

    Pokémon itself got amazing this year!
    My life plummeted down the tubes.. and I didn’t think it got worse than last year

  • Ithsme

    I can completely relate to the post-release depression feeling you have, but on a lesser-scale. After I beat every major release game, I feel sorta lost as to what I’m supposed to look forward to next in life, games are what motivates me. I hope this feeling doesn’t persist for you, PJ.

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      Next in life is the switch for me

      • Ithsme

        Right now I’m just looking forward to switchmas, I’ll make the switch release my next milestone after that.

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          switchmas is only 13 days!

          • Ithsme

            :O

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            ITS GONNA BE HYPE.

          • Ithsme

            HHHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYPPPPPPEEEEEEEEE

            I’m just worried about pre-orders selling out too fast.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            if u see it up on the first day dont hesitate

          • Ithsme

            I have school the day after switchmas, so I wouldn’t be able to pre-order anything until around 7:30 PM. 🙁

          • Prima-Azuril

            What if you get back home at 7:31 PM? Will you go bonkers?

          • Ithsme

            I guess so. 😛

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            the wii u had enough pre orders for a day

          • Ithsme

            That’s good to hear, I guess, but I don’t think it had as much hype as the switch does.

  • Prashanth Raghuram

    Question for you guys… What are your predictions about the next reveal in the Pokemon franchise (main series or spin-off) and what would you like to see? Personally I’d like to see the seventh generation version of the mystery dungeon series and hope it changes up the formula from PSMD

    • Ithsme

      Detective Pikachu 2

      • The Singular Kuppo

        Pokemon colosseum 2

        • Ithsme

          Poke park 3

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      Stars gonna be revealed for the switch coming in summer (closes leak rumor tab) Totally made that up in my mind

      • Ithsme

        Wait was there a new leak?

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          no im saying about the pokemon summer release leak for the switch

          • Ithsme

            Oh, that. Do you think it’ll be announced at switchmas? I really doubt it TBH.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            no it wont, i say it will have its own thing

          • Ithsme

            But if they’re expecting a summer release then it can’t be much later.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            who knows if its really a summer release lol

          • Ithsme

            I hope it is, but from a sales perspective it probably won’t be.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            hoildays is always the best time imo

          • Ithsme

            Sadly.

      • Prashanth Raghuram

        Yeah I think stars is a safe bet considering the walking and running animations

    • Golden_Monferno

      I honestly hope they do something out of the blue and do a prequel Pokemon game for Sun and Moon that stars Necrozma in its true form. Kinda like what they did for Battlefield 1

  • Serenotic
    • Golden_Monferno

      *Cue Jurassic Park Theme*

      • Serenotic

        Actually a Jurassic Pokemon park would be a cool addition mow that I think about it… lol

        • Golden_Monferno

          It would, I mean Snap was similar but an actual game just like Jurassic Park would be the stuff

          • Serenotic

            Well, I meant like in Star that that guy opens the park and you just see the fossil pokemon walking/swimming/flying around in a closed area. Nothing too crazy. Lol

          • Golden_Monferno

            Yeah lol. You know, like a Tyrantrum is something not out of the ordinary (sarcastic laugh).

            Actually, I just thought of something great about this idea. What if in Stars, this park with Fossil Pokemon is a new trial that’s for Rock types? And the Totem Pokemon is the new Alola Fossils they discovered?

          • Serenotic

            Well, actually they are supposed to be, due to not everyone having access to fossils or the device capable to re-fleshify them lol

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      OMG HOW DID i NOT SEE THIS?!?!?! Hahaha

  • Ultron

    What to look forward to in 2017:
    -New Kelly album
    -New Avril album
    -Pokemon Stars, if real
    -Guardians vol. 2
    -Switch/its lineup (ZELDA!)
    -Spider-man
    -Thor 3
    -Beauty and the Beast
    -Game of Thrones season 7 (Winds of Winter too please??? ;-;)
    -Star Wars ep 8

    Probably about it for me. What’s everyone else looking forward to?

    • Prima-Azuril

      – Pokemon Stars announced to also be on 3DS/2DS
      – French elections don’t end horribly
      – Scotland and Northern Ireland leave the UK

      • Ithsme

        – The world ends

        • The Singular Kuppo

          Cant wait for armaggedon

      • Ultron

        Stars on the 3DS would be cool, but idk if it’ll happen. Hopefully the elections go well, can’t say I have an opinion on that last one

        • Prima-Azuril

          I’m not British but I do know that Scottish rights were abused in the infamous Brexit event.

      • RedRat EastGovnah

        nah switch for stars

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Yeah good luck with that.It’d be a waste of effort for them to develop a game for both an HD system AND an underachieving system lol

        • Ultron

          They would have to develop the two separately I think. S/M was already pushing 3DS’ limits. I wonder if S/M are the last games on the DS. The Switch IS portable..

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            Switch main gimmick is that it can be portable, the only downside is the games loses double screen action

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            Well apparently most of the Nintendo higher ups hated the dual screen idea when they were making the DS. Even Iwata apparently wasn’t sold on the idea lol

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            Exactly. Either that or they’d have to downscale the Switch version and it’d look really crappy. The reason games can go cross platform most of the time is due to current system having similar specs. It’s way harder for developers to make a game if they constantly have to think about the secondary system while they’re making the “real” one. One of the many reasons the WII and Wii U barely got any third party games

    • The Singular Kuppo

      -Pokemon stars
      -Nintendo NX
      -New kirby title
      -Final Fantasy 30th anniversary

      • Ultron

        Is there gonna be another kirby in 2017??

        • Prima-Azuril

          I think it’s going to be Kirby Cash Bomb

          • Ultron

            Kirby ultra super mega foxy awesome hot star

          • The Singular Kuppo

            And knucles

        • Ithsme

          Hasn’t there been a title every year for a while?

          • Ultron

            Hm..probably?

          • Ithsme

            If we count the sorta spinoffs and such like epic yarn and rainbow clay

          • Ultron

            Lol rainbow clay. Still need to play that one…

          • Ithsme

            It wasn’t that bad, but it wasn’t my favorite. I found the gimmick a little hard to catch on to.

        • The Singular Kuppo

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          Damn i forgot switch and switch aswell

  • Golden_Monferno

    Another thing I do want to add something else about 2016 being a good year, and that is joining Pokejungle back 4-6 months ago. I really enjoy the community here, everyone is very nice and welcoming to any new here. All of you guys are pretty great and fun to talk to, and I really enjoy these conversations we have in the comment sections. Pokejungle itself has been one of my favorite highlights this year.

    • Ultron

      Aw, thanks. Now get out

      • Golden_Monferno

        (Sigh), Alright…

  • The Singular Kuppo

    Atleast we know the next year Will be better
    (I hope so)

  • Ithsme

    As for my personal highlights of the year, I think in chronological order:
    – Fire Emblem: Fates
    – Anouncment and hype leading up to SM (I had a great time here with you all)
    – Birth of my cousin’s son
    – Going to Florida
    Overwatch *sigh*
    – Meeting a friend who like Pokemon!!
    – Nintendo Switch reveal
    – SUN AND MOOOOOOOOON!!!!!
    – Rogue One
    – Christmas (but for me that’s kinda a given)

    • Prima-Azuril

      They should’ve made the mascot of Moon a cow.

      • The Singular Kuppo

        Miltank and Tauros as box legendaries, neat

        • Prima-Azuril

          Milbank’s sound and Movements are so funny. Don’t get me wrong i mean sure it’s not funny to laugh at fat things, but Milbank is the exception it just moves very wobbly.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Fire emblem fates was awesome

      • Ithsme

        Oh yeah, easily my favorite in the franchise (“true” fire emblem fans don’t hurt me)

        • The Singular Kuppo

          Fates is the only game i played from FE 😛

          • Ithsme

            Oh lol.
            The people who played the first 1-12 FE games first usually despise the 3DS titles.

          • The Singular Kuppo

            Thats your typical fanbase

          • Ithsme

            Haha true. The genwunners of FE.

  • RedRat EastGovnah

    Top 3 games for me this year
    1. Sun and Moon
    2. Overwatch
    3. Fire emblem fates

    • Ultron

      1. Sun and Moon
      2. Kirby planet robobot
      3. Skyrim SE

      Wow I did not buy a lot of new games.

      • RedRat EastGovnah

        Im waiting for the switch version to pick up skyrim

        • Ultron

          I couldn’t wait. It was like 25 bucks and I have a $30 best buy giftcard so I caved

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            smart robot, just buy it twice XD

          • Ultron

            Muahaha >:)

      3. Omega Ruby

    • The Singular Kuppo

      1. Pokemon moon
      2. (Place were i should put FFXV, but i cant because i still havent played it ;-;)
      3. Fire Emblem fates

    • Ithsme

      3. I don’t really know any titles worthy of this spot. 2016 was not a great year in games was it?
      2. FE: Fates
      1. Sun and moon

      • RedRat EastGovnah

        2016 had a very small line of up of great games imo

        • Ithsme

          The only other games I played this year were Pokken, Paper Jam, and Overwatch. None of which I liked.

      • Prima-Azuril

        3 should go to Paper Mario Colour Splash

        • Ithsme

          I didn’t play it but I’ve heard good things.

    • Golden_Monferno

      1. Sun and Moon
      2. Fire Emblem Fates
      3. Overwatch

  • Prima-Azuril

    Personal and political highlights of the year for me:
    – Playing Pokemon actually for the first time! (X, then Omega Ruby, now Moon)
    – Buying and playing Just Dance 2017
    – Halloween
    – Austrian Elections ending in a leftist victory
    – Pokemon 20th year anniversary free legendaries
    – Catching my first shiny!
    – Hatching my first shiny!
    – Getting my first shiny legendary!

    • Ithsme

      Fill in that last spot with whatever happens today!

    • EarthenWarrior

      enough talk about Just Dance, i don’t think ever in my live anyone have positive thoughts on dancing games

      • Prima-Azuril

        Well you must dance or your feet will implode!

        • EarthenWarrior

          I’ll give you some “motivation”
          *Pulls out a revolver and aims for your feet*
          and for good measures
          *Throws some live coal*

      • SpectralSeraph

        It’s good meme material

  • Ultron

    Can you only dye stuff pastel colors with the dye booths?

  • Ithsme

    @Redrat EastGovnah
    I had a scary thought about the switch. What if they market it and treat it as if it was a console with a portable gimmick, not as a hybrid? I mean, what if they come out with a new handheld in a few years, and suddenly we’ve lost the hope of having all games on one system?

  • Prima-Azuril

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1a6fbec20b84d1fad15a7fa3535d5b789c1d5741596c038f1fbd2a338dbeb58d.png
    When you just don’t want 2016 to repeat you beg for mercy for not to spread anything to 2017

  • Ithsme

    Next year:
    My top 3 games from 2017
    3. Splatoon Switch. It added so many new stages, weapons, and modes. I love how there was much more local multiplayer options!
    2. BotW. Exploring the world was amazing! It felt so alive, there was no empty lonely spaces in the world. Also had a great story.
    1. Stars! It added so many great features and fixed every flaw that sun and moon had. Easily the best Pokemon title yet.

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      all switch games 😉

      • Ithsme

        Haha that’s the point! I have high hopes for this thing.

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          me too! seeing that resident evil 7 is rumored to be on it makes me more excited

          • Ithsme

            I can’t wait to see the launch titles!

      • Prima-Azuril

        Excuse me! Stars is going to be a Switch/3DS combo!

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          I dont think gamefreak would waste their time making a switch and 3ds port. The graphics would have to be drastically different meaning more costs, you dont want a true HD pokemon game dont you

          • Prima-Azuril

            Ubisoft still makes Wii and xbox versions for Just Dance, why shouldn’t Nintendo?

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            comparing Just Dance to Pokemon lol. you’re funny

          • Prima-Azuril

            I’ll boycott GameFreak if the 3rd game for the same gen isn’t on the same place.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            ok you do that. have fun 😉

          • Prima-Azuril

            They never made 3rd gen games on different consoles so why should they stop the tradition?

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            they stopped many Traditions lol

          • The Singular Kuppo

            IKR They wont do that, Just like that time when they didnt remove gyms in sun and moon

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            Or the time they didnt do a traditional 3rd game for gen 5 and 6

          • Prima-Azuril

            So there won’t be a 3rd game after all thank heavens, I preferred a Gen 4 remake on the 3DS anyday.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            nah that will totally be on the switch

          • Prima-Azuril

            I doubt it, never have remakes been on separate devices than the original games.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            Why put it on 3ds when u can play the originals on it?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Because Nintendo doesn’t ever change things right? Z was a super amazing game wasn’t it?

          • Prima-Azuril

            I don’t care about your pessimistic trash, I’m defending the 3DS. If they make Gen 4 remakes or Stars on the Switch I’ll quit Pokemon, I refuse to buy another ridiculous console that takes up a lot of space.

          • SpectralSeraph

            It was nice having you in the community while it lasted buddy
            I’m being sarcastic, your expecting Pokémon, a game that sets patterns only to crush them the next generation, to stay the same

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            youll have to buy it sooner or later bud. Not all future pokemon games will be on the 3ds, so make sure you make some space

          • Prima-Azuril

            I just want one last game on the 3DS, and still, how will it work on the Switch, it’s not exactly as portable as the 3DS or the GBA.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            its suppose to be portable lol

          • Ithsme

            What did you plan to do when gen 8 rolled around? Boycott it then?

          • Prima-Azuril

            I’ll buy a new console then but at least keep Gen 7 on the same thing, that’s what they’ve done. And no, I don’t want any sarcastic comments on differing traditions, this is different than actual in-game features.

          • Ithsme

            ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • Prima-Azuril

      Sadly I despise Splatoon, too many cheating swines.

      Zelda seemed interesting but I lost interest, more hyped for that new Mario game.

      Pokemon Stars I’m super hyped for but I’m praying that it’s either a 3DS/2DS game or duo-Switch and 3DS. If it’s Switch only i’ll protest against the Switch host a revolution.

      • RedRat EastGovnah

        what do u have against the switch. and you see how hyrule warriors legends turned out we shouldnt have dual games anymore

        • Prima-Azuril

          I’m against it because it looks very expensive and it’ll just kill my Wii U. I refuse to make my Wii U perish, most of my favourite games aren’t returning onto the Switch, that’s why I wish for a Stars on the 3DS.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            its gonna be cheap nintendo even said it

          • Prima-Azuril

            It’ll cost a thousand dollars in Canada

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            what? what makes u think that

          • Prima-Azuril

            Everything is expensive here.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            ok and its not gonna be that much….

          • Ultron

            The WiiU can’t go on forever. It’s been bad for Nintendo. You should want the switch and want for it to do well.

        • Ithsme

          Hey do you think they’ll market it as a hybrid or make another handheld? I’m a little worried about this.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            its gonna be marketed as a hybird

          • Ithsme

            I certainly hope so. They need the full development staff IMO.

      • Ithsme

        How does one cheat at splatoon?

        • Prima-Azuril

          They be professionals

          • Ithsme

            Makes sense. 😛

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            how is that cheating then 😛

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Wait… the year has already passed??

      Wow that was fast

      • Ithsme

        Time flies when you’re having fun.

        • The Singular Kuppo

          If so then that was the best year of my life

          • Ithsme

            Haha it will be!

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          There’s a time and a place for mucking around!

    • SpectralSeraph

      I especially loved the mega flygon

  • SpectralSeraph

    I’m playing through sun and am on Sophocles trial
    He asks
    “Do you like festival plaza?”
    …. I have some select words for him….

    • Serenotic

      XD Be brutal.

      • SpectralSeraph

        XD
        Look, I don’t dislike Sophocles… but I want to say more than no… I FREAKING HATE IT

        • Serenotic

          I’m still trying to get to 30 on it…

    • Ultron

      I like it, but it could use A LOT of improvement
      -Better interface for the touch screen. It’s really not all that easy to trade/navigate
      -Ability to rank up your current booths by recommending them to people like in join avenue
      -Ability to buy and order booths from a catalog rather than the random chance one of your people has it or sophocles recommends it to you.

      • SpectralSeraph

        Actual working multiplayer would be nice too

  • RedRat EastGovnah

    i hope Pokemon brings GSC VC

  • SpectralSeraph
  • MelloMori

    So personal games that I’m looking forward to in 2017:
    3. Fire Emblem: Mobile. I just really want to see how it turns out and if its fun. It’ll probably not be that good long term, but its still Fire emblem so I can’t knock it.

    2. Persona 5. Other the Egor going threw puberty and terrifying me when I heard him for the first time I can’t wait for this game. fantastic voice cast, the game looks great, the new teddy is adorable, and one of your party members uses what is effectively Japanese Robin Hood as a persona, which is kinda great(I think at least.)

    1. Final Fantasy 14: Bloodstorm. I can’t express the hype I have for this expansion. From going to a new land, the edition of Red mage as a class, swimming(and likely Blitz ball, the greatest minigame in final fantasy ever), fighting Omega who will be both part of the main story and the main raid of the expansion, returning to Ivilice(no idea how to spell it but its the world of ff12 and the tactics series), Umatsu, the god of final fantasy music himself, composing the main theme and still knowing only about half of its features as of this point. It without question is going to be my game of 2017 for certain and I can’t wait to see what crazy journey we go through in what is likely a Chinese inspired region.

  • SpectralSeraph
    • SpectralSeraph

      I love this game

      • Prima-Azuril

        Where is that from?

        • SpectralSeraph

          If you purposely get things wrong in the Sophocles trial you get some dialogue

          • Prima-Azuril

            Ooooh I thought you were doing some sort of mischievous act.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Ummm

          • Prima-Azuril

            You know, hacking, checking through the dialogues in the game’s files, that kind of stuff.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Ah

    • The Singular Kuppo

      This trial is so underrated :/

      • Ithsme

        It’s a little lazy TBH.

        • Ultron

          Yeah it was easily the worst

    • Prima-Azuril

      I’ve sped through this trial I forgot to check for any secrets.

    • Golden_Monferno

      When I restart the game, I’ll have to explore this trial XD

      • SpectralSeraph

        You should xd

      • Prima-Azuril

        Why restart? You’ll lose all your Pokemon!

        • Golden_Monferno

          Just sayin if I ever do, besides I can store my mons later on Pokebank

          • Prima-Azuril

            Oh I thought you meant NOW

          • Golden_Monferno

            Nah, still trying to fill my Dex so it will be a long time before I would even decide to

  • MenacingCascoon

    Definitely a good year for pokemon. This is year was all pretty normal. I dont really care for celebrities, so i guess all thatvdidnt affect me. And although pokemon was just making out with Kanto I still appreciatedd all they did. Sun and moon were amazing games that rejuvenated my joy for the series. Im kinda sad this is the last day of pokemon20, it has to grow up. Im glad I could be a pokemon fan. Now to look toward next year. And the question is: Will it be a lame pokemonless 2015 or another hype Pokemon year?

    • Ithsme

      I wouldn’t think that we would have another pokemonless year after a new gen, those are usually inbetween.

    • Prima-Azuril

      Probably not as Gen 4 remakes/Stars seem to be very likely games.

  • Reece

    Today has been quite a good day for me Pokedex wise.
    I am now at 99% with the only 2 Pokemon left to get are Silvally and Necrozma. Both of which I’ll go after and obtain after I’ve worked out what nature I want them to be (if you’ve got an ideas, hit me up!)
    Also traded a Tirtouga for shiny Type: Null which I didn’t even realise it was shiny cause it’s not an obvious palette change.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Bold is a good nature for Necro

  • Green

    So this happened. (make sure you’re reading the chat too)

    • MenacingCascoon

      Bank is close to being out and this loses to rotom and azumarills

      • MenacingCascoon

        Also psychic is better than shadowball on primarina.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Ok he REALLLY sucks but shows enthusiasm for battling

    • Ithsme

      That Mimikyu should not run splash, go swords dance. It can be used more than once and it gains the use of an item.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Ok done

        • Ithsme

          😀

          • EarthenWarrior

            Ok this team has a bunch of flaws but I dunno, I like the ZSplash
            But i may switch the Komala

  • Ultron

    How did halas crabominable survive and outspeed my dragon danced zygarde complete form? This game is cheating.

    • Prima-Azuril

      Probably played some Just Dance.

  • Prima-Azuril

    Anyone still alive?

    • Ithsme

      Nope not me.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Maybe i am, maybe im not

    • The Holiday Kurusu

      Nope ☠️

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      what is living anymore

      • Ithsme

        No switch = no reason to live

  • Ithsme

    Watch some major celebrity die in January 1st just to show people that it’s a number that means nothing. 😛

  • The Holiday Kurusu

    Welp I just saw somewhere near my house there is a Charizard in GO but too lazy to walk there through a major road way. I also see two Pikachu and Vulpix and caught a Bulbasaur.

    • Ithsme

      Ooh, so lucky. I would’ve gone for it in a heartbeat.

  • Prima-Azuril

    Ugh I’m trying to make up a new team, this is what I have so far:
    lvl 100 Shiny Alolan Raichu
    lvl 64 Shiny Bruxish nicknamed HaroldFlower (in training)
    lvl 100 Shiny Mimikyu
    lvl 100 Primarina named Mizu
    lvl 98 Tapu Koko named Cocoa
    Lvl 91 Tapu Lele named Esprit

    I want to add Lunala to the team but it’s so hard dot choose who I want to get off!

    • Prima-Azuril

      I decided to put Mimikyu away, Lunala has better stats than it.

      • Prima-Azuril

        Nah I’ll keep Mimikyu o for a while

    • Ithsme

      Is this for competitive or…? I need for details.

      • Prima-Azuril

        For fun

        • Ithsme

          Oh then it’s fine as is.

    • SassyChespins

      How are your pokes so high leveled? It’s taking me forever to level up. Tho I haven’t played much lol. Are you just doing elite four?

      • Prima-Azuril

        Yes and a few of them I got by RGTS.

  • Why can’t we fire up The PokeJungle Tourney again to fill the gap?

    Also the Rotom Dex looks like the switch Pokemon Stars for Switch confirmed

    • Ithsme

      Wait what happened to PJT’16?

      I guess you could say that the PJL tourney was PJT’16 this year. xD

      • Yeah but like I want another tourney that doesn’t give me responsibilities

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          Heres my tourney
          There is no tourney

          • Ithsme

            *claps*

        • Ithsme

          Haha, now you’re trapped! >:)

  • RedRat EastGovnah

    First full moon of 2017 is Jan 12th
    Jan 12th is the switch event
    Moon is associated with the latest pokemon games
    Pokemon stars on the switch confirmed

  • Ithsme

    WAIT HOLD UP JUST ONE SECOND

    Are we ever getting the Bayonetta and Corrin amiibo? I need to finish my set!

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      Smash Switch Release bruh

      • Ithsme

        Oh makes sense. Along with another thousand amiibo for alt costumes.

  • TheNintendoChip

    Finally back from Disney! Went up there with 5 of my friends, was quite an experience (fitting 6 people on 2 beds, 16+ hours in Magic Kingdom, and more)
    Pokemon related insert to make this on-topic: I was able to catch two holiday Pikachus there!

    • Ithsme

      So lucky! I was supposed to go there over summer but my mom couldn’t get off work that long. 🙁

      • TheNintendoChip

        Aww that’s a shame. Although we were able to fit everything into 3 days (2 for travel, 1 for the park). It was really fun though, I’d do it again any day!

        • Ithsme

          Glad to hear! Hopefully I can go someday, I imagine it’d be a blast.

        I kinda see it being influenced by that

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      OMG IM CRYING

  • Golden_Monferno

    When we were all confused on Necrozma on its design and what it’s form will be, this makes so much more sense for me:
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d2c9d0c211e3729f3547be6e3129251fb246f78e7e46867fb679b31d5db73ca0.jpg
    If this is Necrozma’s form in Stars, I will literally pay the person who thought of this ten bucks.

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      make it $10.01 *throws penny in*

      • Golden_Monferno

        It’s a better deal

    • Ithsme

      I disagree. Look at necro’s abdomen thing. It looks like a dragon’s head.

      • Golden_Monferno

        I guess, but in terms of Stars it makes sense because:
        – Necrozma has been underground, similar to a scorpion
        – Scorpio is a constellation, and people did speculate originally that a scorpion would be the third legend (for Marshadow before everyone realized it was a event legend)
        – The massive arms make sense to be the claws of a scorpion, and the faceplate looks like it could be too.

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      I think it will have a new form. I’ve also seen people thinking it’ll be a dragon. Scorpion is also a good guess.

    • Ultron

      Automatically become one of my fav legends if this happens

    • EarthenWarrior

      ughhhhh i hate this this thing with a capital Salt
      yet another Psychic Legend/Myth that those jackass Psychic Monos mooch on
      super bulky with A RIPOFF OF MAH SOLID ROCK
      and they JUST HAD to give it Stealth Rock JUST HAD TO, they could’ve made it Psychic/Rock to compensate for the crystal prism theme but nope, just nope

      • Golden_Monferno

        I was expecting it to be a dual type as well, being either Dark/Psychic (It’s overused and not a good typing, but it fits the whole “death” part of its name) or Rock/Psychic (as you described it), but it’s odd seeing a 3rd legend without a secondary typing.

        • EarthenWarrior

          they are just determined to make Sun and Moon an everlasting misery for me

          • Golden_Monferno

            I bet Stars will be better for you Earthen

          • EarthenWarrior

            Fat chance
            what could they possibly add at this point, literally alternate forms of legends
            there is no chance in all seven layers of hell they’ll add real new pokemon at this point

          • Golden_Monferno

            Well there is the possibility of move tutors making the new Pokemon better, maybe even making Mudsdale and Palossand great. But that’s what I think, anyway

          • EarthenWarrior

            well you thought wrong
            Mudsdale can only be improved by Stealth Rock and i don’t give a crap about the Sand Castle it doesn’t hold up against anything

          • Golden_Monferno

            Ok then

    • zess

      It always had a bit of an incomplete look to me. This is an awesome concept.

  • TheXmasMonster6893

    Ugh…so I started hunting for Pikipek just to see if I could get something out of it within a reasonable amount of time, but my Smeargle ate the Leppa berry it had and for some reason Recycle won’t work. So now I don’t have the eternal PP I had planned on and only have what I have from the team I brought. Luckily I can still go on for a while as I have a full team, but still sucks….I wonder why Recycle won’t let me get the berry back…..

    • Ithsme

      Haha good luck, Pikipek took me forever.

      • RedRat EastGovnah

        this rockruff to me is how pikipek was too you

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        I don’t even have the shiny charm yet so this is incredibly frustrating to me that I basically burned a Leppa berry for no reason….

    • Ultron

      Just use a leppa berry in your bag instead of recycle.

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        I….don’t have anymore….I was gonna put the last one I had in Poke Pelago, but then used it by accident and then just decided that once I was ready I’d use the one I had planned on Recycling in pelago……grrrr…..lol

        • Ultron

          Poor planning. Go find another and plant it

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            Less of poor planning and more so I didn’t anticipate some weird stuff happening to the Leppa I had on my Smeargle. I didn’t imagine I wouldn’t be able to get it back. Also honestly I’m pretty nonchalant about shiny hunting for now. I go as far as I can and if nothing turns up I quit for a while. That’s how I need to be until I get my shiny charm. I really want Bank to get unlocked for SuMo lol

          • Ultron

            Me friggen too. Me. too.

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            Things would be so much easier hahaha

  • Ultron

    God, the festival plaza sucks ass right now. Like no one is hosting good missions.

    • Chaos

      So it’s not just me. Literally waiting there for half an hour for a mission to pop up.

  • ShinyXatu

    2016 was a very unusual year. At the beginning some of us were still convinced that Pokémon Z was next, rather than a 7th generation. Then Magearna came along and everything changed. I think the hype buildup for Sun and Moon was handled in a fantastic way, Pokémon GO was a cultural phenomenon when they needed it most, Pokémon RBY were finally released on the virtual console, and all of those Mythical events were genius. I don’t think we’ll ever see a game’s anniversary treated so well in our lifetimes. In my personal life, I spent much of 2016 questioning the role of technology in my life, and whether it would be best to completely cast it away, but after experimentation within myself I have found that technology will always play some role in my life. I will go through 2017 with this mindset. 2016 was also the year that I met someone in my own life who has changed the way I look at myself and others. I’d say it’s the first time in my life that I’ve deeply cared about a person, outside of myself and close family. I feel blessed to have experienced that feeling at all. Since there isn’t really more to say on that subject, good riddance 2016, and I hope 2017 has many more surprises.

    • Ithsme

      Wasn’t Magearna revealed in 2015? Or is my memory finally deteriorating?

      • Golden_Monferno

        Nah it was revealed back in February CoroCoro leaking

        • Ithsme

          Hmm, could’ve sworn it was like September 2015. Maybe that was Zygarde?

          • Golden_Monferno

            Yeah, that was Zygarde. Volcanion was in December, and the new movie was revealed in the same month as Volcanion.

    • Ithsme

      I’m confused on the technology thing. Do you mean like a career path or just technology in general?

  • Ithsme

    I know it’s unlikely but I really want to see Monolith Soft’s new project at switchmas.

    • Xenoblade Chronicals HD plz

      • Ithsme

        Xenoblade Chronices X HD plz

        FTFY

        And nah, they’ve said that they’re working on a completely new Xeno game that feels completely different from Chronicles and X.

  • Ithsme

    Another thing: does anyone else feel like 200,000 switch units worldwide is a way too smal number?

    • Ithsme

      *small

    • ShinyXatu

      I thought it was 2 million?

      • Ithsme

        I heard 200,000 on the switch subreddit, but that person might be wrong.

      • Ithsme

        Oops you’re right, the person just messed up lol.

    • MelloMori

      2 mil for a console we know nothing about seems about right. We have no idea how well the thing will handle, or any of its flaws really, and if rumors are to be believed the launch lineup’s pretty bad. Really once we do know what the system is like a lot of people will probably lose interest in it and honestly its better for Nintendo to play it safe right now and have low stock in the face of high demand. It’ll piss a lot of people off in the short term, but it also gives them plenty of time to see how much of a demand they need to meet and not end up with consoles filling up warehouses.

      • Ithsme

        Plus artificial demand always works out for them. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

        • MelloMori

          Less artificial demand and more under valuing their products, but yeah.

  • The Singular Kuppo

    Im only 1 hour away from 2017!!

    • Ithsme

      8 hours.
      ;_;

  • Serenotic

    Is anyone going to wait on Switch for a while? I’m going to buy one during the second wave or so. Lol

    • Ithsme

      Nope, jumping on the hype train ASAP. I’m just worried about pre-orders selling out lol

  • Golden_Monferno

    So the main villain of my region would be the team leader (of course), but with a different twist:

    Instead of knowing the villain’s identity, my team leader would always wear a helmut to conceal themselves. The identity would not be known until the very last part of the game.

    As for their appearance:

    The helmut would be similar to this:
    https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/38/6e/b6/386eb61b985bd8ae795feef8472531e9.jpg
    It would be mainly black, but there will be a green visor with red eyes blaring out of the visor.

    Along with the helmut, as for their overall outfit, they usually wear a mechanical-looking black suit that is underneath a slightly rugged, but overall tattered cloak to conceal their body.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Team….Neos

      • Golden_Monferno

        I’d say Neos is a pretty good name to be the team name, though I was thinking about it having Genesis in the name

  • Prima-Azuril

    Apparently in the GTW over 47 million Passimian have been traded.

    • Ithsme

      Where have you found these statistics?

            Yep and but it didn’t taste half bad, but it went to the dog once I was done taking pictures

    Last Comment Question of 2016: What is everyone’s New Year’s Resolution?

    • Ithsme

      To stop second-guessing everything I do.

      2017 will be the year of first impulse for me.

    • EarthenWarrior

    • ShinyXatu

      I want to get a job, I want to conquer my anxiety and depression, I want to treat my days with more enthusiasm, I want to enjoy my first year of adulthood, I want to stop being so hard on myself, and I want a girlfriend.

    • Ultron

      Get a good paying job that I’m happy with, take more risks, start writing more, finish all those videogames I’ve got… I’ve got a few.

    • Serenotic

      Earthen will crush me if I say it. Lol

    • Be fabulous as fuck

  • The Holiday Kurusu
  • The Holiday Kurusu

    I must say this for my fellow Junglers left

    Thank you! Thank you! I have loved this part of the year with you guys, even if this year sucked a*s with many deaths, the Election, and literally about a quarter of my family getting sick or worse in their illness, but in all fairness other than this I loved this year and hope for another one next year! I love you all see you next year! (As in about 5ish hours but won’t be back till morning)

    Happy Mew Year!

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Happy mew year for you too!!

    • Ultron

      Mew is adorable. Makes me wonder about that exclusive Z-move…I’m expecting a shiny Mew event with it as a held item.

  • Ultron

    I love PSI Kirby’s obvious nod to Ness :3 It makes me so happy. It’s also a bit OP with that damaging teleport.

    And do we know when exactly in January that bank is updating?

    • Ithsme

      Watch it be tomorrow lol

      • Ultron

        I’m not readyyyy. Although I’d prefer it be tomorrow I guess.

  • RedRat EastGovnah

    in 2017 Nebby still wont get in the bag.

  • Prima-Azuril

    What a terrible new year already 1 hour after a terrorist attack occurred in Turkey and at least 30 people died ugh it’s so sad 🙁 Not to mention that this’ll raise the far-right parties and xenophobia. Sorry but it’s just so sad.

    • Ithsme

      When will people learn not to blame a year for some bad events lol

      • Prima-Azuril

        Ugh some of my family lives in Turkey I hate politics and I hate terrorism sorry I’m not in the mood to be happy or random I’m seriously upset here. This is worse than Fomantis.

        • Ithsme

          That was really rude of me, I apologize. Terrorism sucks a bunch, I really hope that you’re family members are alright.

            It’s fine you two and thanks for being so concerned Ithsme.

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          I apologize then

        • *hugs* Why do some people suck

          • Prima-Azuril

            Thank you :>

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      i mean they could of done it 2 hours before it would of been 2016 and then 2016 left on a badder note, stuffs always gonna happen in the world no matter what

    • fuck fuck fuck 2017 is going to be worse isnt it

      • Ithsme

        I’m holding back a rant here…

  • Serenotic
    • MelloMori

      Aww, their both demonic horrors that should be burned with fire. That’s adorable.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I wanna see Terra surrounded by Rock and Ground types

      • Serenotic

        👍🏻

  • MenacingCascoon

    What better way to go to the new year than starting off with a shiny charm in sun and a brand new copy of Pokemon Moon (my mim bought it)
    It’s not new year yet where i love, but here’s to an amazing 2017!!!!

  • Chilling here in 2016 who’s with me?

  • Good things from 2016. I want to start this year with positivity.
    – Nintendo Switch Reveal
    – Zootopia
    – Stranger Things
    – Moana
    – Overwatch
    – Pokemon Sun and Moon
    – Pokemon GO bringing people together
    – Steven Universe’s best episodes
    – Phillip Defranco Show
    – Robbie Rotten
    – Fantastic Beasts
    – Rogue One

    • Yo, tell me about Robbie Rotten… did he get his own show or something?

      • He had cancer and had to undergo a crazy operation but because of the meme a bunch of people donated to his Go Fund Me and he was able to pay for it all

        • Ithsme

          That’s actually really cool, I hadn’t known about that.

    • Ithsme

      Yeah! More postivity never hurts.

      • Ithsme

        But move overwatch over to the bad things list, mmkay? 😛

      • Also I animated a thing yesterday in Flipnote Studio for the first time in a long long time and it looks good

        • Ithsme

          Lol I used to love that back when I used my DSi. I had this dream of becoming a famous flipnote animator. xD

      • EarthenWarrior

        Bah, you knows what happens when you times a positive with a negative

        • Ithsme

          Who’s multiplying here? xD

          • EarthenWarrior

            Me *Cellularly divides*
            *Rips right down the middle and the cells reconstitute whole*
            “For one Earthen becomes two!”

      • Serenotic
        • EarthenWarrior

          I uh…I don’t get the reference

          • Whaaat. Isn’t that Satan from Fantasia?

          • MelloMori

            Churnabog(not spelled correctly), but yeah.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I thought the art style was Disney in nature

          • MelloMori

            Err, It’s Disney’s Fantasia, so yes?

          • EarthenWarrior

            I ddon’t think I ever saw that

          • MelloMori

            The OG Fantasia’s pretty old, so not surprising. It is beautiful though. Same with its sequel(to a lesser degree) and the shorts they made that were cut from it, like the little match girl, the tin soldier, and another recent one that’s escaping me was done in Moana I believe?

          • Drew Genel

            I dunno, Firebird Suite was pretty great.

          • Serenotic

            :*(

    • MelloMori

      Solid list. Though I’m kinda surprised that you didn’t throw in Soliel from FE: Fates in there as well, given she seems right up your alley as a lovable character that was rewritten for the better in her English localization. Then again most of this community isn’t as big with the series, so what ever. Great list and see you tomorrow fellow member of the nation.

      • Ithsme

        I don’t think she played fates (she didn’t get my memes and it hurt my feelings ;_;)

        • Nope I didn’t

          D: Maybe if I can ever finish my dex and Paper Mario I’ll pick up Awakening or Fates and try it out

          • Ithsme

            You should, I recommend it highly.

          • MelloMori

            As would I as well. Fates is the better of the two, though a few references might be lost on you without awakening, namely Odin and his friends, though honestly its not that important. Only that Odin is one of the best characters ever.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Stop.
      You’re making me miss 2016

  • ShinyXatu

    For those of you fellow West Coasters, we’re at just under 5 hours until ball drop. I have a feeling that I won’t miss this year in the slightest. On December 31, 2017, I will be a community college-goer with a real job and some degree of direction in life. The best has yet to come. As I am synonymous with Xatu, I suppose I should ask: does anybody have any predictions for the crazy antics that will occur in 2017? So much unpredictable stuff happened this year, down to the most unbelievable things.

    • -Breath of the Wild will change gaming forever like the first one did or Ocarina of Time

      – I will be slightly happier

      – Pokemon Stars will make me struggle to decide what my favorite Pokemon game is

      • EarthenWarrior

        If Stars is actually a thing

        • Well I just confirmed it is with the Rotom Dex

          /s (but not really)

          • EarthenWarrior

            Rumor until proven otherwise

          • ok but come on

          • EarthenWarrior

            Nope, no positive vibes from this Elementalist

          • why tho

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’m depressed

          • MelloMori

            I wanted to become a psychologist. Wanna talk about it?

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’ll sum it in five words
            World sucks big time…..yo

          • MelloMori

            Well remember this my friend. Even if the world feels like its hit rockbottom, there is something to look forward to. Once your there, the only way is up. Things can only get better really, but they only will in your eyes if you want them to. So try to keep an open mind with the future.

          • MelloMori

            I’m kinda amazed that I agree with you Earthen. Yeah. Until proven real, its just a rumors. No sense buying into things that we want to be real because they give us everything we want to hear.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’m one of the few who don’t buy into tumors and make wild accusations

            And you know that moment when I crush those who are excited about rumors, I feed on that

          • MelloMori

            I’m not one to feed off of peoples despair, but its nice to see that we can come to a consensus on something.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I feed on disparity, anguish, carbs, i nibble on my goatee too much (really bad habit) oh and fear

    • Ithsme

      My prediction:
      – Regardless of what happens people will blame the number for the events that occur in these next 364 days

      • Ithsme

        Honest predictions:
        – Switch will have a great year because of the good advertisement by nintendo
        – There will be a great shortage (and I probably won’t get one until may sadly if this happens)
        – Stars won’t release until fall

        • ShinyXatu

          Here are some of my Switch predictions:
          -Animal Crossing before the end of the year. The new New Leaf. Sells like crazy.
          -Zelda BOTW is a launch title. Also sells like crazy.
          -Super Mario Switch is a holiday 2017 title rather than a launch title. E3 2017 features it. We get another Mario game at launch instead.
          -Switch sells out within days. Mass media panic ensues.
          -We get a Kid Icarus game on Switch in 2017.

          • Ithsme

            I have my doubts about the AC thing, but we are getting a mobile app, which, if apps themselves have switch compatibility, may hint at it.

          • ShinyXatu

            “Nintendo will design the latter game so that it will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems. By playing both Animal Crossing games, users will find increased enjoyment.” It’s going to happen, it’s simply a matter of when. I think it makes more sense to be closer to the app’s release than further in the future.

        • MelloMori

          Stars(which isn’t confirmed) was already rumored for a fall release, so count that last one confirmed?

          • Ithsme

            I believe it was originally rumored for a summer release, wasn’t it?

          • MelloMori

            Yeah, and then another rumor came out saying that the game was pushed back to a fall release due to dev issues, which makes it sound a bit more fake given it just sounds like their trying to continue the lie since a fall release wouldn’t be reveled likely in January. But that’s my own two cents.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      My only prediction that i can think rn because im tired as hell:

      -Stars wont sell nearly as much as sun and moon

    • TheNintendoChip

      Are you doing like a community college + high school program? Or did you graduate early?
      Either way, congrats!

      • ShinyXatu

        I’m going to do 2 years of community college before going to a full college for another 2 years. It saves money and increases options for me. I’m hoping I don’t get a D in Calculus before graduation, because that might cause some unforeseen problems. It’s seeming more likely every day. I’ve heard mixed reports though, I might be alright.

        • TheNintendoChip

          What I mean is that at some schools in my county, you can get your AA at a community college by attending during your junior and senior years of high school. Then you graduate w/your AA and high school diplomas. Is that what you’re doing?
          Also it’s very smart that you’re doing this. I know a lot of people put down community college as being “low-tier”, but in the real world it doesn’t matter. Good luck!

          • ShinyXatu

            Nope, I suppose I’m just going to graduate from high school normally, the community college won’t be involved in that. That is what comes after, as in this fall (probably). There’s this whole world of possibility that will open up for me post-June that I am extremely excited about. I need to be freed from the high school shackles.

          • TheNintendoChip

            College is a very uplifting, exciting, and freeing experience! I wish you the best 🙂

    • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

      More celebrities will die.

        At least Stan Lee made it

        • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

          The year ain’t over yet for the east coast. Don’t be saying those things yet.

          • I swear to god if he has like a stroke right as the ball drops I’m throwing hands

  • I’ve also resolved my inner conflict between Game Dev and Animation and realized I can do both

  • EarthenWarrior

    So in this hour of chewing out the clock until I decide to just go to sleep
    I figured I try for one more Fakemon for the night

  • EarthenWarrior

    (Hit return by accident)
    But this Pokemon is a Pure Electric Fox like Pokemon
    So far I call it Sparkit or Sparkistu
    Sparkit
    The Young Fox Pkm
    Motor Drive/Quick Feet HA: Speed Boost
    A Small bright yellow Mammalian Pokemon with a large backward jagged ears in the shape of lightning bolts and a white muzzle with squinting slits for eyes, and an extremely long tail
    “They live in high valleys following storm clouds, by absorbing Electricity into their bodies they can run up to 60MPH”

    Then by the touch of a Thunderstone these fast footed Electric types evolve into Veloxity
    Veloxity
    Electric
    Motor Drive/Quick Feet HA: Speed Boost
    A larger Fox Pokemon with sleek blonde fur powerful legs that have grey paws, their ears get very long and point back and their muzzle point out almost to a needle, their tail grow long and stray sparks of electricity jolt out of them
    “Blindingly fast, Veloxity amplify their running muscles with electricity to run as fast as a bullet, at top speed they discharge electricity and resemble a lightning bolt”

  • Y’all don’t leave this place can’t die yet I have no plans this New Years

    • EarthenWarrior

      Neither do I, so might as well go to sleep
      I gotta move furniture tomorrow so I need sleep

      • did you see my little animation I didn’t get attention for it and I’m really proud of it

        • Ithsme

          I didn’t see it, I only heard you talk about it.

          • http://imgur.com/9ZOmxKe
            ^^
            sfw titties though

          • Ithsme

            Great animation! Much better than all of mine lol

            I must say, I’m a little confused as to what’s actually happening though. O_o

          • So am I honestly.

          • Ithsme

            Ohhhhkay then. xD

          • Well like I was having trouble coming up with something to actually animate so I was just like “ah screw it I’m drawing titties”

        • EarthenWarrior

          Was she trying to inflate her bewbs?

          • I suppose ¯_(ツ)_/¯

          • EarthenWarrior

            Don’t lie

          • I never denied it ( ͡- ʖ ͡-)

          • EarthenWarrior

            Fine, hmmmmmmmm nah I don’t think you’re ready for “that” kinda animations

          • what kind of animations, Earthen? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well there’s this guy on Deviantart I’m friends with and he does a lot of animations (mostly fetish but what can ya do) but he’s a total nerd, I tried to invite him to the jungle but politely declined

          • ok. well I’m not going to become a porn artist Earthen so don’t you worry

          • EarthenWarrior

            I never said porn, and ya never know when erotic lightning strikes your creativity…gland….but whatever I don’t wanna sound like more of a creep than I usually do

          • “creativity gland” I’m dying

            And I don’t post everything I draw 😉

    • Ultron

      I have to go to bed, I work in 7 hours.

    • Ithsme

      No plans for me either. But I’m glad it’s that way. New year’s eve sucks, it’s new year’s day that’s the real party. xD

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Sorry, i need bed, bed needs me
      Me+bed=Happines

      • Ithsme

        That’s usually the case for me but I slept in until noon today. xD

        • I’ve been sleeping until Noon all break 0.0

          • Ithsme

            Usually it’s like 10 or 11 for me. Latest I’ve slept all break was 12:30.

          • Last night I realized I have been staying up til 3 AM every day so I decided to stay up all night to just f*ck up my sleep schedule even more so I can reset it until I realized that I had to stay up until 12 again today at 6AM

          • Ithsme

            I’m usually in bed by 11:30, your sleep schedule is too crazy for me.

          • Yeah so am I but this break just made me decide that sleep is for those with productive lives

  • Ithsme

    IDK if this has already been done, but what was your GOTY? If it’s sun and moon, then what got runner-up? For me it was FE: Fates. It kept me entertained through may, which is pretty tough to do for a non-pokemon game.

    • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

      I haven’t really played many games that came out this year.

      Hyper Light Drifter I guess

      • Ithsme

        It wasn’t a huge year for games tbh.

        • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

          I’ve just been catching up on old stuff, most of the games that came out this year I wasn’t interested in or couldn’t get as they came out on other consoles.

          • Ithsme

            That’s fair. Pokemon pretty much saved this year for me, if it weren’t for that, then I’d be completely lost.

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Pokemon Moon was great, I’m just taking a break from it right now so I don’t feel burned out later.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      FE Gates, havent played many games this year

    • EarthenWarrior

      God those Ghibli movies……..the feels

      • I need to watch more. I’ve only seen a few and half of Moving Castle

        • ShinyXatu

          I watched Kiki’s Delivery Service recently, it was incredible. Spirited Away is great too, of course. If you want a real tearjerker, watch The Wind Rises. Those are my three favorites.

          • Kiki’s Delivery Service is my personal favorite from what I’ve seen. Spirited Away is one of the best animated films ever though

          • ShinyXatu

            Okay, then watch The Wind Rises next. You may or may not love it, but you will hopefully like it.

          • My plan
            Finish Howl’s Moving Castle -> The Wind Rises -> Grave of the Fire Flies

          • ShinyXatu

            Nice plan. In case you want a sneak peek of The Wind Rises’ Elder God-tier soundtrack:

          • EarthenWarrior

            Didja hear about the Red Sea turtle?

          • ShinyXatu

            I did, looks like it’s been getting good reviews. It also seems to be releasing in a matter of weeks in USA – January 20!

        • EarthenWarrior

          I only saw Spirited away abet I was fairly young and No Face scared the shit out of me,
          And I watched Howl’s Moving Castle on the way to Comicon one year (never going back… Always alone)

  • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

    I started Undertale a few days ago and am at the end of the genocide route.

    Almost killed Sans but my cat jumped in front of the screen rip

    • Ithsme

      Ouch that’s harsh. I can’t beat him for the life of me.

      • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

        I got Undyne in five attempts and almost beat this jerk in two

        • Ithsme

          That’s INSANE. It took me weeks to beat Undyne, and I still haven’t been Sans to date.

          • Ithsme

            Oops used the wrong html ending. lol

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            The only attack that gave me trouble with Undyne is the ring of spears that spin around a bit before closing in on you.

            Once I got the hang of that it was easy.

          • Its easier with the Sea Tea

          • Ithsme

            I wasted my pie and had to restart when I released my huge mistake.

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            I didn’t use that.

          • Ithsme

            It’s been like half a year since I’ve played that fight but is that the one where you have to constantly run around the rectangle thing when more spears keep spawning over and over and over?

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Kind of? There’s an attack where spawn in a ring and come straight at you and one where they just spin around and close in. The one where they spin around is a pain for me.

          • Ithsme

            I don’t remember which one I’m talking about lol

            One of those two gave me a bad time a tough time.

    • its a sign. You can still reset and do a Pacifist Run ya know.

      • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

        I’ve done the pacifist and neutral runs already. I’m not replaying the game either so I don’t care if I taint the file.

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            ???

          • That was supposed so say that you have a cold dead heart

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Nah I just wanted to experience everything this game had to offer even if the genocide route is complete garbage.

          • Comments like these remind me how much of a genius Toby Fox is

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            I mean gameplay wise genocide is just trash. Two extra bosses makes it worth it though.

          • I think that’s why its so genius though. Because like you said you are only doing it to see everything. You are murdering all of the friends you just made just for more content so he gives you a tedious boring experience

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Artistically that’s cool but I’m not a big fan. You can still convey a message while creating an enjoyable experience, but that’s just me and I’m a victim of severe Undertale overhype so ¯_(ツ)_/¯

          • Ehhh I think it would be less powerful and kinda ruin the point if Genocide was just as fun

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            The genocide route already makes me guilty as hell so making it incredibly tedious feels unnecessary.

          • Well the thing is, you keep going right? Even though its tedious because you want to see what else there is. Even if it means resetting the happy perfect ending for one where everyone is dead. IDK if you’ve seen the end of the Genocide Route or not but it really ties this point up really well

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Yeah but that doesn’t require tedium, I already understand the consequences of killing everyone considering these brutal fights and the tainted save file at the end of it all.

          • Ithsme

            IDK if you were really supposed to get this impression but I felt like at the end of the game you sorta became flowey. Like reseting and stuff and testing multiple outcomes.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Lol that boss needs to chill out a little bit (even though he has a good reason not to)

  • MelloMori

    So since we’ve mentioned things that were looking forward to in 2017, personally I’m looking forward to see Miyazaki to come out of retirement(for the fourth time give or take) since he’s been talking about wanting to work around with 3-D animation. And wouldn’t you know taht after Gibili shut down a new studio make from their Alum that works with taht same art style, but in 3-D animation started up. Hmm…Makes you wonder :3

    • ShinyXatu

      Oh wow, that would be very interesting. I don’t think it will look too much different than Ni No Kuni.

      • MelloMori

        Yeah the studio’s name is Studio Ponoc. Here’s the trailer for their first movie.

  • Ithsme

    Time to end this year probably like I started it. Watching youtube.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Thats how i live my life

      • Ithsme

        Same, that’s why it’s likely that I was watching youtube at the start of 2016. xD

    • I started this year singing “Stronger Than You” from Steven Universe while my family was at a party across the street

      • Ithsme

        Well alright then. xD

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I’m officially going to bed
    And tonight’s the night to open (and christen) my new electric blanket

    This year sucked so unbelievably hard and I just know the next will be even worse, hopefully Yooka-Laylee is fantastic and inspires a new age of 3D Platformer games

    See you Buttmunches next year

    • Happy New Year!

    • Ithsme

      Aw, brighten up a little, would ya?

      Is what I would say, if I didn’t already know earthen.

    • ShinyXatu

      May the “Stars” align in 2017 🙂

    • The Singular Kuppo

      I like how positive you are

  • ShinyXatu

    I think you guys need to see this video before the end of your year…

    • then go here to remember all the ups and downs and downs and downs and downs…

      • Prima-Azuril

        Stupid Brits

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Why are there so many horror movies elements in the trailer?

      • …because its a horror movie

        • The Singular Kuppo

          …makes sense

    • Prima-Azuril

      They forgot the Turkish coup d’état

    • The Holiday Kurusu

      7 minutes for me

  • The Holiday Kurusu

    Well my 2K egg was the f*cking worst egg ever thought it would Pichu or something and it’s… F*cking Magikarp, yet got Tangela as well so…

  • What would you tell your past self from January 1st 2015?

    • Ithsme

      Do you mean 15 or 16?

      • Ithsme

        Either way, I’d tell myself all of the SM details so I could become a leaker.

        Nah, jk. I’d really tell myself that I live until 2017, so I can stop worrying about dying until then.

        • I could write a whole essay on what I would say honestly

          • Ithsme

            Oh of course, I could as well. But I wouldn’t have that much time, I guess.

          • This year was so crazy.

          • Ithsme

            Only one hour left…

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Please, dont break your phone “on accident”

    • ShinyXatu

      Don’t send that text on October 8th. You’ll know what I’m talking about.

    • TheNintendoChip

      Tbh: “You’re going to pass Spanish. Stop stressing so much”

    • some things
      – Hug your friends more you wont see them for long
      – Except John he is secretly an ass
      – School is goona be fine
      – May 23rd is going to change everything
      – Don’t stop making games

      • Ithsme

        Shoot I just thought of two by reading yours.
        – Keep in touch with your friends after 8th grade more, you won’t know how good they were to you until they’re gone
        – Don’t resist going to the school your parents want you to go to; it’s no use.

        bonus one I just thought of:
        – Take a huge initiative to make more friends in high school sooner. If you wait too long then everyone will sorta have a place except for you

        Doing this is sorta making me sad.

        • I talked to my best friend that doesn’t go to my school anymore during Christmas and it was the best. Friends are so important and nice

          • Ithsme

            Sure go ahead and brag about it, I have maybe two real friends, and we arent even that close. xD

            ;_;

          • oh no sorry oops I didn’t mean to brag. Can you not contact your friends at all?

          • Ithsme

            I only stay in touch with one of my “squad” (I’ve never said that lol), but we haven’t talked much recently (he’s one of the two). I’ve heard from him that the group split up at the new school, so maybe going to a different school than the rest of them was for the best.

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            I’m a real friend though… Right?

          • Ithsme

            Of course! All of you here are.

            But what I meant was outside of PJ. I need peeps to keep me entertained in the 9 hours a day I’m at school usually.

          • NO BECAUSE YOU ARE A ROBOT TRYING TO BEFRIEND HUMANS IN ORDER TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            I thought that was Ultron

        • TheNintendoChip

          Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t talk to my 8th grade friend group anymore. Tried to keep in contact w/one of them, didn’t really work out.
          I’m super close to my high school squad though, so I can relate to that. Especially because we only became squad in Junior year, so I was basically a loner for the first two years

          • I somehow found a bunch of nice people who became friends in high school pretty quick so I think I’m doing ok. I honestly dont know how

    • zess

      All the winning lottery numbers ect.

      • Ithsme

        And to put money on the cubs. xD

    • The Holiday Kurusu

      Not sure probably
      -Dude there’s a new Pokémon game coming and it’s sooooo worth it!

      but I’d rather go to September 2013 and tell myself (not gonna use names)
      -Alex don’t fall desperately in love with “Blank” it will f*ck you up the rest of your f*cking middle school life!!!!

      • I haven’t had a crush on someone ever. Part of that may be because I’m pretty caught up in my own stuff right now though

        • Ithsme

          Another one!
          – Don’t waste your time on your “love” life until college at least. You’ll have far more important things to be worrying about something that’ll never happen. (I’m being serious it’s a huge waste of time at my age)

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Unless you find “the one” like my brother

          • Ithsme

            Yeah, that’s fine and all, but statistically it’s a huge waste of time until you’re older. That goes for me to.

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Me as well I like’em but normally they don’t like me so why bother

          • Ithsme

            I like the new name and avatar!

          • TheNintendoChip

            I’m in college and I still have far more important things to be worrying about

          • Ithsme

            Oh, that’s not what I meant. xD
            What I meant is that it’d never really amount to anything big enough to be worth my time right now.

        • The Holiday Kurusu

          Trust me it’s not worth it you fall into a spiral of it and it leads to desperation, depression(yes I had minimal depression back then for a bit),and Psycotic behavior

          • Ithsme

            I had a spike in depression when my crush got a “boyfriend” (too young to be considered real).

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Yep my problems too

          • Ithsme

            I got over it soon enough, though.

          • actually I had a crush on a girl for a bit but that died quickly and we are just friends. IDK. Maybe this year I can find someone nice

          • Ithsme

            I swear don’t go looking for it. I’m trying to help you lol

          • nah I’m not looking for it. If it happens though thats nice. I have some work on myself to do first though

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Well hope you find a good one

          • The 2017 Kurusu

      I feel this so much. Except my pains are all medically related. It’s not fun having back, neck, feet, etc. pains as a teen, and people are like “but you’re not old”

  • Youtube comment arguments are so fun when you dont give a shit

    • Ithsme

      Watching them or getting into them?

      • I’m in one right now and this poor guy is just so confused about everything and I love it

        • Ithsme

          I’m intrigued.

          About what?

          • gay sex

          • TheNintendoChip

            >PIV is the only real sex
            bye fam

          • V+V 👌

          • Ithsme

            Which isn’t on the topic of the video, I’m assuming?

            Never change, youtube, never change.

          • The Singular Kuppo

            We almost never talk about the topic of the article either XD

          • Lol nah. Its this homophobic pastor guy in the video who is just funny to me because he goes on these huge angry tantrums like a child and I commented about how much I thought it was funny and this weird comment chain spawned about people acting like typical youtube commenters so I’m just f-ing around with both of them because they are both funny in how angry they are

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            It’s fun to watch people throw tantrums

          • It really is. Especially grown adults

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Unless it’s someone like in Earthens case of you know an illness (I think that’s how it’s said)

          • Ithsme

            Nothing out of the ordinary then lol

          • Yeah. Like you just need to not take it seriously and comment sections can be a playground

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Ummm… I would like to disengage from this topic Me no like this

  • zess

    Well my bed is calling me. You guy’s and gals have fun and I’ll see ya’ll later.

    • Ithsme

      Night!

    • The Singular Kuppo

      See ya in 2017

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    Hey Look no longer a Holiday Kurusu I’m the 2017 Kurusu… Unless Better name comes up

    • Ithsme

      Oh yeah delibird is no longer relevant huh…
      I’ll have to think of something.

      • MelloMori

        It kinda is given that its the year of the Rooster/Chicken

      • The Singular Kuppo

        It has to be a bird pokemon tho

        • Ithsme

          Oh yeah I’ve sorta got a trend going with rowlet and delibird now. xD

      • What is your favorite pokemon? Do that. I could draw ya something if you want

        • Ithsme

          I appriciate the offer, but I’m good. I like stealing official art and such. xD

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          Oh I forgot did you ever get around to making that Porygon for me? It’s no problem if you didn’t just wondering

          • omg I’m so sorry I totally forgot. Will see if I can do that tomorrow sorry

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            It’s alright I’m pretty laid back and patient with this stuff so take your time no rush

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Togekiss it brings hope and Jubilee to the world so perfect for today

        • Ithsme

          This is actually a pretty solid idea. Hmm, I’ll consider this.

  • The Singular Kuppo

    Crap… its almost 7am and i only have slept 2 hours

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      Get to bed my friend

      • The Singular Kuppo

        I cant sleep anymore ;-;

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          Have you tried counting Flaffy

          • The Singular Kuppo

            Does that even work?

          • TheNintendoChip

            It’s possible. Might have something to do with distracting yourself. I know when I can’t fall asleep, I have to “clear” my mind by just abruptly stopping my train of thought and just focusing on my breathing or something.

          • The Singular Kuppo

            Interesting… but I dont to sleep anymore so…

          • Do what I do and look at space

            Watch those space livestreams and cry a bit because the universe is is big and beautiful and even though humans treat eachother bad the world we live in is still amazing and we should love every minute of it

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            I love looking at space cause it looks just so magnificent to know there’s a lot more than us out there

          • me: writes a paragraph about the beauty of space and our planet while teary eyed
            also me: titties lol

    • TheNintendoChip

      Just fyi, if you’re actually making a game out of your region, it’s a lot of work and probably can’t be done well in a year.
      If you’re just doing concepts, then good luck and have fun! 🙂

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Well not a computer just more making all the main stuff then maybe making it on a computer

    • Golden_Monferno

      I really hope it’s gen 4 remakes, it’s been so long since Pearl came out, and I’ve been itching for coming back to the region

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!🎊🎆🎈
    I feel really good about this year, I just know it. 2017 will be wonderful (for the most part).

  • Ultron

    Everyone’s being all optimistic and I’m over here, cynical as usual, thinking there’s no way 2017 will be better than 2016 in any form.

    • Chaos

      I dunno what was so bad about 2016. I had a pretty good year personally.

      If you’re talking politically, then yeh it’s only gonna get worse.

      • Ultron

        I am mainly talking politically. I see no positives in 2017. Other than trump winning and some sad deaths, 2016 was a fine year.

        • Spetsnaz

          We should leave politics off of here if some people are going to make such sided statements

          • Ultron

            I’m an environmental studies major, what are you expecting. He’s anti environmental, just look at his cabinet picks. But whatever, I’ll stop here.

        • 2016 killed all sense of feeling for me

    • SpectralSeraph

      Agreed …

  • EarthenWarrior

    I started my new year stumbling into my nightstand and breaking my fan
    Bad Luck Confirmed

  • Prima-Azuril

    Good morning my pals and gals!

    • Golden_Monferno

      Good morning

  • Golden_Monferno

    I know some people think that its going to get worse politically, which is true, but as for this year I’m not going to really worry about it. Worrying about it won’t get me anywhere, so I guess I’ll just have to move on and see what the future holds.

  • SomeGuy

    Graduated in 2016 and moving to LA in 2017. I had a solid year. 2017 will likely be solid. No hyperbole here.

    • Vekxin

      Los Angeles or Louisiana? Lol LA stands for two things

      • SomeGuy

        Los Angelos

  • Prima-Azuril

    Anyone still alive or on right now?

    • Golden_Monferno

      So far its only been Horsea for the one I’ve caught, I’m going to use Island Scan today and find another Pokemon

      • Prima-Azuril

        Oh cool

    • Ultron

      Croconaw is the ??? that you’re forgetting

      But I literally haven’t touched the island scan.

      • Prima-Azuril

        Ah thanks.

      • Prima-Azuril

        I don’t think anyone has literally touched the Island Scan, it’s not a physical object.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      A litwick, but it was the baby of a litwick that i obtained via Wonder Trade so it doesn’t count

      • Prima-Azuril

        Ah

  • Golden_Monferno

    Holy crap

    So I just used island scan and I had to go find a Samurott in the Poni Wilds, and I found one with Adamant nature. 2017 is starting out pretty great.

  • Prima-Azuril

    Ugh I just feel so terrible, with all going on, life doesn’t seem fair anymore.

    • *internet hugs* 🙁

      • Prima-Azuril

        Thanks!

  • SpectralSeraph

    So for no reason I got DC’d during a local trade and can’t trade the synchro ABRA I needed to synchro solgaleo… fun

    • SpectralSeraph

      Cause bans

    • Spetsnaz

      Somebody on here taught me, breed a synchro abra, and just go until you get the nature you need

      • SpectralSeraph

        But it takes forever…

  • Drew Genel

    As a sort of new year resolution, I’m making a pokemon region. Any thoughts on my starter designs? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/1315bf5dba33cb751edca6d1d2b53ee6de1c65abb9b9eb6d286fc394d505cc42.jpg

    • Moar bunny pokemon

      • The Singular Kuppo

        More is never enough

      • Drew Genel

        Its supposed to be a pika, but they are closely related to rabbits

        • Well thats the once I would pick either way :3

    • The Singular Kuppo

      They are very cute 😀

      • Drew Genel

        Thanks!

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      I love it! Really cute!

      I think based on
      Grass- Koala
      Fire- Phionix?
      Water- Tardigrade?(Water bear)

      • Drew Genel

        Close!
        Pika
        Phoenix/Hummingbird
        Tardigrade

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          Oh ok it’s really cool though I have starters for a region I’m making but haven’t drawn them yet they are

          Grass- Lemur
          Fire- Bull
          Water- Flamingo

    • zess

      Loving that tardigrade and the rabbit.

    • SpectralSeraph

      BUG WATER?!

      • SpectralSeraph

        I NEED

  • Prima-Azuril

    I’m totally bored and want to be happy so I made up a list of possible evolutions for Pokemon in Gen 8:

    1) Carbink gets an evolution (yeah I know it and Diancie and that theory but there should be a linking Pokemon between ’em, not as evolution but in design-wise) that becomes completely filled with sapphires. It has a beautiful, Lusamine-like crystally hair flowing, with it gaining a dress created by lighter gems, along with a beautiful sapphire growing underneath it. Its name would be Sapphiregal, Sapphire + Regal.

    2) Furfrou gets a female pre-evo, known as Poodarling. It has less fluff, but its fluff is completely pink so it flashes out. Remains Normal.

    3) Hawlucnha gets a large evolution. The face of Hawlucha stretches out and its body is large, while its mask covers up half of it. It gets a menacing look with piercing wings, and becomes Fighting-Poison.

    4)

    • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

      Nah. Hawlucha’s gimmick is that it’s Fighting/Flying.

  • I was about to make a Lusamine pun but it was so bad you would all mohn and groan

    • Prima-Azuril

      Did you Lusamine?

    • TheNintendoChip

      bye

  • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

    Not pokemon related, but Megalovania has been ruined for me forever

    • Prima-Azuril

      Yeah it was a bad country sad they collapsed.

      • wat

        • Prima-Azuril

          You do, Megalomania, it contained Romania, Indonesia, Bulgaria, Nicaragua, Belarus, Lesotho, Lebanon and obviously Morocco.

          • The Singular Kuppo

            History Joke! !

          • Prima-Azuril

            Their leader was known as Vladimir Stinkpot.

      • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

        well ok we’ll go with that

    • The Singular Kuppo

      And im going to ruin spider dance for you

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tU3el-Kk8Fw

    • Prima-Azuril

      oooh

    • InfinityD4

      Now I need to know what all the others are.

  • Prima-Azuril

    I have a question; is Gen 1 really as good as people seem? As an avid critic and hater of Gen 1, I want to know other than it being the birth of Pokemon, why is it so popular? Why does it get so much attention?

    • Its not that great.

      • Prima-Azuril

        Thank gosh!

        • Do you hate it just because others hate it? Have you played it?

          • Prima-Azuril

            85% of its Pokemon are creepy, ugly, weird or just yucky designed, genwunners have soured it, Pokemon Go and Niantic’s devious plan to milk it, horrible region design.

    • wait a second

      “As an avid critic and hater of Gen 1”

      “Is Gen 1 really as good as people say”

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Its kinda good on Its own and people love because mostly nostalgia

    • InfinityD4

      It’s good for a GB game.

    • Chaos

      It get attention because it’s the beginning. No matter how successful you get, you will always be drawn back to where you started. You will always remember what happened right at the beginning. It’s natural.

      Also yeh, I think Gen 1 is pretty good. Some solid Pokemon. Cool region, cool Evil team. Nothing major but a good/solid starting point.

    • Ithsme

      It’s not terrible but it’s without a doubt the weakest entry in the series. But who can blame them really?

    • Reece

      You’ve got to think of when it was released. It was something that attracted kids instantly as 150 Pokemon to collect and battle and trade, that’s pretty cool, especially with those who had imaginary friends as instead of going on adventures in your head while running around the garden, you could do it in a big game with lots of strange creatures.

      Yeah I mean when you compare it to Sun and Moon standard, gen 1 sucks but what do you expect? I mean its the first title of the series, of course there were gonna be a few bugs and tweaks needed here and there (critical hit works on speed/toxic & Leech Seed/Fire Spin), but when you look at the core element, its a simple but brilliant premise.

      Gen 1 gets so much attention cause its the foundation of what is now Pokemon. It is something very successful that they could’ve never imagined to be as recognises as it is now. Gold and Silver were meant to be the last games but they sold out even faster than Red and Green in America.

      As for those who complain about how only Gen 1 Pokemon got Alolan forms, I would tell them to get over it. We are finally at a time where every generation of main Pokemon games can be played on one system, why not have a bit of throwback to where it all started and celebrate that in a game?

    • Prince Fae

      every generation is good in its own unique way

    • SpectralSeraph

      No it’s ass

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      I like it because it has some decent pokemon and interesting story somewhat

    • Prima-Azuril

      No you can’t.

    • MelloMori

      And yet she’s guilty of genocide and dooming the universe to a fate worse then death. Nintendo’s first female hero everyone!

      • She expelled the Universe

        • MelloMori

          Yeah, but none of that even comes close to the crime of Federation Force if the internet was to be believed.

  • Prima-Azuril

    Seriously fishing is corrupt, all I keep fishing are demonic pearls and my fishing rod must be broken…UGH!

  • Prima-Azuril

    Dunno why…..I just tried to shiny hunt a Bruxish. I already had a shiny Bruxish, I didn’t need another one, SOS hunting suck, why did i do it!?

  • joker901

    I found a shint rockruff a week ago. It took me like 850 sos and, despite I had a jolly kadabra, the shiny was timid with just two ivs and the worst abilitie.
    Today I decided to hunt for a better one: I found my second shiny rockruff at 70 sos, jolly, with its hidden ability, with 4 ivs and the non perfect two being sp. att and ps (which are normal). It will be a sweet no guard midnight form shiny Lycanroc!! So happy!!

  • Prima-Azuril

    I really hope that Shiny Lunala (and Solgaleo but I’m not a big fan of it) gets sent out like Xerneas and Yvetal. I really want the shiny!

  • EarthenWarrior

    ARGGHRARUGHHUGLAAAHHHHHHH
    Dead…..
    Moving furniture all day…..argghhrughhhhhh

  • Ithsme

    Ugh. Today and tomorrow suck so much. No matter what, the last few days of a break are always filled with me worrying about school again. Also I’m super bored, so there’s nothing to distract me easily.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I still gotta move furniture tomorrow and that involves lifting couches and setting carpet
      I swear my mother never thinks these things through, we get a u haul full of furniture fo free but we didn’t clear the living room first……..
      There’s like 3 couches in there….

      But tomorrow is my last day off until work calls me in…..

      • Ithsme

        That sucks. :/

    • ShinyXatu

      It’s always very depressing when a break comes to a close. I tend to look back and think about what I would have done if I could reset the break. Unfortunately I never do what I say I will do.

      • Ithsme

        I imagine that’d just make me more sad because that’d make me feel like I wasted it. xD

  • MelloMori

    So I just spent the last two hours staring at a proverb that was posted by a dev, hinting at a future update in a game I like, and I kinda had to face palm when I realized how obvious the message of it was, and that its a bit depressing. Simply being that a fan favorite character in the game is likely going to die in its next update.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I have know idea what any of that means

      • MelloMori

        Short version, Final Fantasy 14 is having its final big patch before its next expansion in two weeks, so the director pretty much wen to twitter/facebook, gave some warm wishes, and then posted this cryptic poem hinting at the next patch.

        ‘Look ye where the sun Doth rise,
        See crimson embers, dark’ning skies,
        Look ye where the sun doth fall,
        See azure lost amidst the squall.’

        More or less its meant to hint at what is to come, being that things are heating up in the east and leading to conflict and war, which is the main focus of the next expansion, and something being lost, likely dying, in the west, where the game currently takes place. Given theirs no real conflict there anymore, azure can be narrowed down to someone bearing the title of Azure, which three characters do, one being the player character, a character that has more lives then John Snow, and a character who’s too old to deal with this crap anymore and just wants to live a quiet life, meaning he’s the one most likely to die.

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          I guess its regular body or a young boy or girl body to resemble it being a first stage

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    OK for names of my Spider I have a few now so who likes which?

    -Duleggid
    -Rachduo
    -Duader
    -Twinider

    • Cat

      • Oh wait, I thought you literally meant a pet spider.

        • You named your pet spider… cat?

          • 1) Why would I have a pet spider? That’s gross
            2) I’m not stupid enough to give the name cat to a spider… come on…
            3) So what if I did?!

            😐

          • 1) Good point
            2) Good point
            3) I would be scared of you for having a pet spider

          • To be honest I’d be way too scared to own a pet spider. Anything with more than four legs scares me. Aside from octopi. Those are cute.

          • EarthenWarrior

            i used to have an imaginary pet Kraken named Frank when i was 7

          • Liar.

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          Nah my Fakemon it’s a two legged spider first of a three stages set

  • Prince Fae
    • This animation is so gooood

    • EarthenWarrior

      KILL THEM ALL

      • Prince Fae

        Quiet

        • EarthenWarrior

          NO THOSE FUCKING THINGS ARE STUPID

          • Prince Fae

            I don’t have time for this today

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Don’t worry I like them they are cute

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            It’s pretty good on my weather team on Showdown

          • EarthenWarrior

            Bah they’re useless and extremely stupid looking Amoongus clones

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            But till bank it’s The new Amoongus

          • EarthenWarrior

            just with a shitty type, shittier hp and a one trick pony

          • But they dont suck like Amoongus

          • EarthenWarrior

            Amoonguss is much more bulky

          • Its also gross and weird looking and Toad here is at least kinda cute

          • EarthenWarrior

            its just infinitely unnecessary they’re just overusing those fairy whore
            it should’ve been a Grass/Fire Tiki that would’ve been so much better then yet another mushroom

          • EarthenWarrior
          • Prince Fae

            clearly you’ve never used one, they are one of the most useful fairies this gen

          • EarthenWarrior

            *rolls eyes* all they do is what every other grass type since gen 1 does, spam leech seed, sleep powder and giga drain

          • Prince Fae

            no hunty. yes they may be a self healer but they also are sp.def tanks and can hit really freaking hard with moon blast and sludge bomb

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Moonblast is proven by me

          • EarthenWarrior

            not to steels types toots, one iron head or Smart Strike and they are done

          • Prince Fae

            honestly you’re so predictable at this point. Im not even going to dignify you with a response to that

          • EarthenWarrior

            because you can’t do nothing to them buttmunch
            it has a base 60 HP, sure it has good defenses for something so awful but Defense is nothing without HP and vice versa
            And that puny 30 Speed would be its undoing so it can barely set up without a bigger stronger pokemon slaying it down to size first

          • Prince Fae
          • EarthenWarrior

            hides behind gifs when exposed to the truth
            and with Bank coming out this thing will have tons of new threats that will be on EVERY team, talonflame, heatran, Salazzle, Excadrill, M. Venusaur, Gengar
            pretty much any of these ruin it

          • Prince Fae

            honestly the gifs are because you’re a dumb ass but I’m trying to be nice and not tell you to get a life instead of wasting all your time raging on a pokemon site.

          • EarthenWarrior

            niiice comeback not

          • Sorry Earthen but that was an even worse come back

          • EarthenWarrior

            like i give a shit, i know for a fact Shiinotic is stupid and will be outrun by anything that can hit it hard,

          • You know for a fact [insert your opinion]

            Not everything is about competitive

          • Prince Fae

            … the sad truth is his hatred for fairies makes him think that Shiinotic is bad competitively… its not and its a better mushroom all around that Amoongus.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Pffhhhh as if, alright right here right now go show me a battle where Shiinotic actually is useful

            I’m calling you out, chicken out and its fate is sealed

          • Jesus Christ, just let him like Shiinotic. If it was “good” then you would hate it for being powerful. Not every pokemon has to be top tier ubers. They all have niches and uses

          • EarthenWarrior

            And as my job as a battler to remind him that compared to nearly anything else it is outclassed
            its only pluses is the mandatory Spore and Strength Sap which is dangerous i doubt this thing can handle taking on big guns alone

            And that includes myself for having to let go of Rhyperior

          • Who cares though. You just said it. Rhyperior is competitively shit and its in your profile picture. Why do you feel the need to tell him how awful a pokemon he likes is. You always just try to bring people down whenever a fairy type is posted

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            This is also true very true like me and weavile

          • EarthenWarrior

            *mockingly whisper* what’s he talkin about Weavile is already a dangerous threat

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            It is? My friend tells me it’s horrible with x4 to fighting is he wrong?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Are you dull son, Weavile is one of the most lethal ice types ever made
            a base 12o attack and a mind boggling 125 Speed makes it INSANE
            access to fake out, Icicle crash and Knock off and the worst ice Shard

            it may be a glass cannon but with its speed it can easily to some damage to anything that doesn’t have priority attacks
            and even that, they still can run away or tough it out with a Sash

            your friend needs to get kicked in the head by a Mudbray

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            This is true why my one friend annoys me he only likes competitive ones and says all the time Weavile, Polished, and my favorites are horrible pokemon cause apparently they suck

          • Prince Fae

            mine wasn’t a comeback

          • I mean yeah that makes Earthen’s even worse!

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            I’ll douse Heatran with Samurott

          • EarthenWarrior

            then right into Breloom the most dangerous Mushroom to ever exist

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Almost every socks speed wise this region though

          • Prince Fae

            is he still going off?

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            I think he died off for now

          • Prince Fae

            ok, honestly I blocked him because he’s just plain annoying and I don’t need him commenting like Mr. Crocker every five seconds

          • EarthenWarrior

            says the ass who spammed chat for 3 days going on and on about a lousy shiny

          • TheNintendoChip

            Unless I’m thinking of someone else, you’ve got the wrong person.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Oh my apologies that was RR

          • EarthenWarrior

            no shit tis becoming one of the worst dexes
            the only things actually making an impact are the reskins and only a handful of pokemon excluding the op Tapus and UBs

          • SpectralSeraph

            They pale in comparison to Amoongus IMO
            But they’re still freaking great

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Hey your back! How you doin’

          • SpectralSeraph

            I was gone?
            (I’m dead inside… Nintendo banned my pokemon sun after an error occured in a local trade…)

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            😖.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Game Freak seriously needs to fix this…

          • EarthenWarrior

            Apparently not according to Fae

          • SpectralSeraph

            They aren’t bad though. I can say they are quite good

          • EarthenWarrior

            bah i say, the bloody thing will be condemned to UU or NU when bank hits i honestly doubt this thing is ready to take on Heatrans every match or talonflame

          • Do I have to pull out my “Subjective” Gif?

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      Dance my children!

    • SpectralSeraph

      These Morelull…. I want them

    • oops im goona animate it

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        I say
        5b- Snorlax
        1d- Weavile
        4d- Rhyperior
        1b-Lopunny

    • TheNintendoChip

      I wanted to find one for Cynthia, but A4 w/Barry looks too hilarious in my head

      • oooo omg yeah that is perfect. I’ll wait for more responses before I choose one

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      Oh ignore last comment

      2d Hilda

    • EarthenWarrior

      Fine how about Excadrill with a Shiinotic impaled on its horn

        • EarthenWarrior

          feh i’m always gonna be lonely

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            No you won’t you’ll find the one someday

          • EarthenWarrior

            fat chance

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            No you will any thing can happen

          • TheNintendoChip

            Well if he doesn’t do anything about it, he’ll be right.
            Keep telling yourself you’ll be lonely and miserable forever, and you will be.

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Yeah you just gotta leap the hurdles and rush into the rock wall at full force!

          • Well you gotta stop being such a grump before you are goona solve that bud

    • Ok I think I’m going with @irvinap:disqus ‘s suggestion and do Hilda 2D

      • imastart sketching if I dont get any more suggestions

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Yay I just thought OMG this would be absolutely adorable

  • Ultron

    Sorry if I’ve been irritable lately, y’all.

    • ??

      • Ultron

        Idk I feel like the few comments I’ve posted in the last day or so have been angry.

        • I haven’t noticed anything :/

          • Ultron

            Do I mean so little to you

          • I didn’t say that no *hugs*

          • Ultron

            I reject your love

          • crii

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            😲!

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          You seem bothered but not anything bad

          • Ultron

            I’m burdened with the weight of the universe

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      Don’t know what you mean but it’s OK if we all didn’t have are moments we’d be rocks

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Or Geodudes

        • Ultron

          I’d rather not be a geodude, especially alolan geodude

    • Ithsme

      Hadn’t noticed.
      Your behavior has been COMPLETELY unnaceptable recently. >:(

      • Ultron

        I’M SORRY

    • EarthenWarrior

      irritably is the correct way of expression
      If you’re pissed off you let the whole world know, and drag them down to your level so that everyone else is miserable

      • That is actually the worst way to react

        • EarthenWarrior

          Makes my day get better

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          Yep only thing I do smash my head a few times into a wall (it actually relieves lots of stress when it’s too hard to hurt)

      • Ultron

        I usually just avoid people if I’m angry

      • TheNintendoChip

        And what good does it do to make everyone else miserable?

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          Makes him sane?

        • EarthenWarrior

          So nobody’s happy, and when you’re angry or sad, their happiness is MOCKING YOU

          • ‘gettin real sick of your shit, Earthen

          • EarthenWarrior

            well i had a shitty day
            just like yesterday and the day before that

            spent the whole day moving gigantic furniture and i had to shell out 60 bucks to pay for my brother’s new mouse and my pup keeps wrecking things

            do you honestly think i do this just to be mean?

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            I feel sorry now for you

          • I don’t care at this point. You constantly complain about how unhappy and miserable you are then you spend all day being super negative to everyone here. How are you supposed to be happier if you keep pushing it on us? How about you just grow up and treat others with some level of decency and maybe if you can treat others with respect then you can treat yourself with respect as well

          • TheNintendoChip

            That sounds like a personal problem to me. Because when I’m having episodes, the last thing I want to do is bring down the people who try to help me. Sometimes I do what @Ultron6:disqus does, and just keep to myself. Other times I’ll be very open and willing to let those around me help instead of doing them harm.
            We’ve all been through pain, I can guarantee you that. I’ve had my fair share too. But the difference is when I’m suffering, I see people who are happy around me, and I think “Why can’t I be like that? Why can’t I be like that?”. But I don’t view it as them mocking me. I don’t view it as them teasing me, torturing me, telling me that I can never be like them. I see it as a model, that one day I can get there and achieve that. If nobody is happy around you, how will you know what happiness is? How will you get there?

        • Ultron

          It’s sort of like a coping mechanism with anger or anguish. Bringing other people down to your level to justify your feelings. Some people do it unknowingly though

          • SpectralSeraph

            If I even remotely tried doing it… I think I’d be a bit worse than Earthen.. hence why I don’t

          • Ultron

            Some times I have thoughts like that, but I don’t think I would ever actively try to take people down if I feel shitty.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah… Unless they try to diss me… than I’ll make a comeback and be ruthless… but only in self defense

          • TheNintendoChip

            I understand that, but it seems like for everyone involved, it does more harm than good. Surely there is a better means to cope.

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Head smashing!

          • EarthenWarrior

            already did that yesterday to the fridge
            (also i smash and destroyed the bananas my mother bought) i don’t know why she buys them nobody ever eats them))

          • SpectralSeraph

            Avoid the recoil

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Forgets recoil and faints

          • SpectralSeraph

            Unless your Nihilego … if anyone runs head smash on it i swear to god

          • EarthenWarrior

            still think it should’ve been a Psychic/poison type

            Also one thing that bugs me is WHY THE FRIGGING HELL DID LUSAMINE NOT HAVE ONE ON HERE TEAM
            I mean only one major boss fight had a full 6 pokemon team and that was the Champ, i mean if the lady is obbessed with the dang thing why doesn’t she have one for the final fight, and the Beast boosts on her pokemon are a fucking joke, they actually gave Milotic a attack boost IT DOESN’T HAVE A PHYSICAL ATTACK, this is why i think they’re just phoning it in at this point

          • SpectralSeraph

            Except for the Clef

          • EarthenWarrior

            who?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Clefable

          • EarthenWarrior

            What about it it got a boost in SP Def

          • SpectralSeraph

            I know, if you aren’t underleveled/lucky/refreshed it’s a pain in the ass
            Though fun fact, the Milotic actually has flail

          • EarthenWarrior

            that’s still a useless move and my point stands, there was no reason for her not to have one

            i mean come on, but its not their fault, their “target” audience are beyond stupid squirts who need constant hand holding, and that is the sole reason we’ll never get a harder Pokemon game, because they can cut corners and put little effort for a audience that doesn’t call them out on their shit

  • TheXmasMonster6893

    So after having Quick Attack on my Smeargle for a little while now I want to get something a little bit more powerful on him. Are there any regular double battles I can do now? I don’t know whether the Battle Tree even allows for Sketch to work, but even if it did I don’t really want to risk Smeargle learning something I don’t want it to.

    • Ithsme

      Get a wild ditto to do it for you. 😛

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Valid point……Might try that lol

        • Ithsme

          It worked for me, it’s the best way IMO.

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            Hopefully the Ditto will use the move I want it to tho. If it takes its time and uses every move other than the one I want I may be in that battle for a while hahaha

    • EarthenWarrior

      what possible Smeegle could you be brewing Smeargle is pretty much required by law to run
      Spore
      Geomancy
      baton pass
      Sticky Web

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Shiny hunting Smeargle so I have Recover, Recycle, False Swipe, and a real attack of my choice lol

  • SpectralSeraph

    Y’know how I can tell I’m hated by the world?
    My 3dsgot banned the MOMENT BEFORE I TRADED THE SYNCRHO ABRA I NEEDED FOR MY SOLGALEO OVER

  • Ithsme

    I leave for ten minutes and there’s ALREADY tension. xD

    • SpectralSeraph

      You are the mighty peace keeping birb, we need you

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      It spreads like Wildfire here

      • SpectralSeraph

        Why is this not a pokemon move yet?

    • Ultron

      I didn’t mean to bring this upon us xD

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        It actually wasn’t you

        • Ultron

          Ehhh indirectly

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            What do you mean?

          • Ultron

            Well my original comment sort of stemmed it lol

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Oh no don’t blame yourself blame Magikarp for this

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      Well how I see it

      Fae posts Shiinotic animation
      Earthen rages
      Fight starts

      • Prince Fae

        I didn’t fight with anyone, I gave a swift block and left it alone, if he’s going off still thats not my problem (unless he was fighting with someone else which I mean, when doesnt that happen)

        • Ithsme

          I don’t think anyone’s blaming you lol

          • Prince Fae

            oh good because I’m feeling fabulous today and so calm I might pass out. Meditation does wonders

          • Maximum fab

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      How is it possible the people here keep getting into shit? Can’t ya’ll go one day without annoying each other? I kid mostly, but come on now hahaha

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        It technically is over reactions chain reacting it forge… destruction

        • TheXmasMonster6893

          Over reactions are the spice of life lol

    • TheNintendoChip

      It’s like when you have family over for an extended period of time. After so much time you can only deal with so much, and you’re just tense all the time. It just takes one little thing for everything to erupt.

    • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

      What’s going on?

      • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

        Oh Earthen’s being edgy again.

        • SpectralSeraph

          Gladion, the Earthen edition

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Gladion wasn’t nearly as edgy as I expected, honestly.

          • EarthenWarrior

            bah he’s just trying to be edgey cause he has mommy issues

            i want a low life sociopath who stole a weapon and uses it for his own selfish reason

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Good luck finding that in pokemon.

          • EarthenWarrior

            That’s why i’m writing my own game

          • SpectralSeraph

            Appearance wise though?
            He did have a few edgy lines of gold at a few points

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          Yup

      • MelloMori

        Nothing really. Just the usual tension that happens. Some says something that set’s someone else, which causes a chain reaction, and more so now we’re all kinda tired of it, which is why things look a lot worse then usual.

  • SpectralSeraph

    Anybody know how long these stupid trade error bans last?

    • 2days i think

        KURUSU KNOOOWS

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        ???

        • Ok I was kinda reaching there to use a Bo Burnham Gif

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Oh I gotcha

          • For real though you’re so sweet. Goodnight!

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            This may be super super far down in the comments but Goodnight to you too I hope tomorrow you have an even better day tomorrow It saddens me to see you depressed and all but anyways Goodnight!

    • EarthenWarrior

      actually GF has a wildfire move
      Grass pledge with Fire Pledge causes a inferno that does periodic damage

      and i want to take a piece of rebar and beat the shroom until it bleeds glitter

      • SpectralSeraph

        I mean a move called Wildfire

        • EarthenWarrior

          too bad the concept is already there and implemented

          • SpectralSeraph

            Eh

          • EarthenWarrior

            but nope its too much trouble to run Grass and Fire pledge
            And if a Wildfire move isn’t just a glorified burn or weather clone then it truly has nothing more then the value of existing just for the sake of existing

          • SpectralSeraph

            hmmm

          • EarthenWarrior

            its either a full force attack, (Plenty of those) a Weather effect that does damage or increases power (exists and can’t be both) or simply a de-buff

            they should just focus on extremely unique attacks (and not just stacking a gagillion things onto a super ability)

            Like my Dark move Blindside which randomly activates in 2-5 turns for major damage

      I will not let you down my fellow avian. *salutes*

    An amigo of mine told me to use Incineroar in a playthrough and tell me how I felt toward it afterward… thinking my opinion would change
    I didn’t think I could hate it more….
    I was so wrong…

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          a flop

          • SpectralSeraph

            And some people LEGITIMATELY believe its good
            How?

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            probs the same people that believe lurantis is good:p

          • SpectralSeraph

            Nobody believes Lurantis is good
            People think INTIMIDATE will fix its problems? How about not being a defensive fire dark type

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            stoutland does a better job tbh

          • SpectralSeraph

            At this point I wouldn’t be surprised seeing Tyhpholsion being a better defensive fire type

          • Ithsme

            *glares intensely*

          • SpectralSeraph

            Lurantis has a god tier design but is still trash

          • Ithsme

            Oh yeah, I mean design wise and stuff. However Incineroar sucks in all departments.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah, who even made that choice

          • EarthenWarrior

            to think i was actually afraid of that thing, thank GOD they didn’t give it chlorophyll

    maybe that should be my project for 2016 my Rebar Club
    a piece of rebar, a string of nuts (Hardware) wrapped around the shaft and then bound together with good ol duct tape

      Ouch that pricepoint.

      • Prima-Azuril

        I’ve waited for new DLC for YEARS, now I’m divided on whether buying the SWithc or not.

        • Ithsme

          You know you want to. 😉

          • Prima-Azuril

            Why can’t it be Wii U? I have 60 dollars in the eShop. The eShop better return in the Switch with our accounts or I will burn a Switch.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            So you won’t waste money on a switch for games but you would to burn it

          • Ithsme

            I would imagine that it would use the same nintendo ID system and all, so eshop money would still be valid.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            I hope we can change our usernames atleast once I hate mine on the Wii u

          • Ithsme

            Same here. I also have a seperate account for both Wii U and 3DS because I was being stupid, so I really want an option to merge. I don’t want to lose games I have on either one. D:

    • Prima-Azuril

      YES POKEMON ISNT MENTIONED HOORAY! HOORAY! THE SWITCH ISN’T GETTING IT!

      • RedRat EastGovnah

        Pokémon isn’t a launch title silly

        • Ithsme

          yeah I’ve heard it’s most likely fall now

          • MelloMori

            And that’s assuming that its even real given that the sign’s of bad info/fake rumors are starting to show with one of the major leakers starting to be caught in a lie with breath of the wild.

          • Ithsme

            Multiple credible sources have referenced it to be true, so it’s definitely not just another leak to write off. It’s not confirmed, of course, but it’s got a little going for it.

          • MelloMori

            Oh of course, I’m not denying that their very well could be a project called Pokemon Stars in the works, but I would question that any information about it at this point could very well be false once people really look into who’s claiming what. Like for all we know Stars could be the code name of a spinoff game, some new dlc, or just about anything. Heck as we get closer to the big reveal of the Switch you already have people really trying to predict if the switch will really be viable as a handheld console, which seems to be 50/50 right now with people and thus bringing more questions as to what stars actually could be.

          • Ithsme

            Yeah, that’s true. Personally I’m really REALLY hoping that Nintendo doesn’t screw this up and release a new handheld in a few years.

          • MelloMori

            Honestly I’m kinda the opposite. I really don’t think the switch is viable as a handheld for many reasons, and the best thing they could do would be letting the 3DS continue on for a couple more years, pushing the new 3DS more, and then replacing it with either a successor in the DS style, or going for something like a smartphone like handheld that could play nintendos mobile games, and generally had power comparable to that of a vita, given that’s would be the ideal level of power for a handheld now.

          • Ithsme

            That’s one of the worst things they could possibly do (no offenese). IMO they’re going to need their ENTIRE development staff producing for the Switch to have enough exclusives to provide a great incentive for people to buy it. Don’t get me wrong, 3rd party support is great and all, but NOBODY is going to buy a nintendo console for the reason of playing 3rd party games. They have much better options out there, so they need to give players enough of a reason to purchase a switch, and splitting up their development teams like they are now won’t do it.

          • MelloMori

            What teams are they splitting exactly? Generally the only hand held devs that even slightly work close to them are gamefreak and intelligent Systems, who are both considered second parties and generally do what they want. Nintendo’s first parties are focusing on the switch and in turn the 3DS is far more known for its 3 party support. In fact most of the 1st party support on the 3ds is usually seen as pretty bad.

            But again we’re talking about stuff years off from now. And again this is why I say things are pretty 50/50. Everyone has their own idea of what would be best for Nintendo.

      • That is the most broken logic

    • What a bargain!

    • EarthenWarrior

      Nyarghhh I wanted to see something i haven’t seen before
      Where the hell is that mario game
      maybe that could momentarily quell my fire

      • RedRat EastGovnah

        Jan 12th will

        • EarthenWarrior

          it better because if this year is gonna get better (which it aint) we need to see a return of nintendo ACTUALLY MAKING GOOD GAMES

          Nintendo i used to loyally follow since the i was fucking 3 years old but now i feel they’re giving up the fight on making new original games when its easy to shell out

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            Leaks say to expect a new ip from them

          • Ithsme

            BotW looks pretty awesome IMO.

          • EarthenWarrior

            they can’t coast on greatness forever

          • Ithsme

            It doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it while it lasts.

    • MelloMori

      So honest question, is $120 a common price for Canadian games? Assuming that this is Canadian given its EB games, or maybe Australian? Those prices are pretty normal for them. Or maybe its a typo?

      • Prince Fae

        $120 is nowhere near a reasonable price for a game here

        • MelloMori

          Then its not impossible to Be Australian, where games do normally cost about 120 dollars, though their average wage is about double by comparison to the US/Canada, so it sorta evens out. It’s why you usually see things like Gamers from there complaining that people are complaining that we have to pay a merger 60 dollars due to them not knowing exchange rates.

          • Ithsme

            Then maybe the 999.99 isn’t a placeholder after all, and Nintendo just way overpriced the system. xD

          • MelloMori

            Assuming exchange rates that would put it around roughly 400-500 USD, which honestly sounds about right for a placeholder, and is pretty realistic. I mean at that point it is about the average cost of a console and would send a pretty clear message to consumers about the switch being a home console first and probably steer dev’s to keeping handhelds on the 3DS, given its overwhelming market share and that price point pretty much prevents owning multiple switches in the home.

          • Ithsme

            If they price it at 400-500 dollars then they’re just shooting themselves in the foot.

          • MelloMori

            It really depends. We don’t know the specs really, but if you said it was a slightly weaker ps4 that could be played on the go, then that price point seems reasonable for some. But again, we really don’t know what market Nintendo’s really aiming for with this. No matter how they handle the switch, their going to be taking a shot from some fanbase saying they did them wrong. Generally I just want them to put out a good home console and worry about a handheld market later. The 3DS is doing fine with plenty of games on the horizon for it, and the last thing they should do is burn that side of their business especially given how hot it sold this Christmas and how much money their investing into white hacking to keep people from hacking the device.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            RN a PS4 pro is $400 and a regular $300 if Nintendo wanna make any type of sales a 300 maximum is their best bet

          • MelloMori

            Fair enough, and even then they still probably are placeholders, but who knows really. We know nothing about how expensive this tech actually is. We might be looking at another Wii U situation where the price was as high as it was due to the gaming pad and not really the console itself. Perhaps because of making it a portable tablet, it increased the costs significantly.

          • RedRat EastGovnah

            But the console is the the tablet. LKD a reliable leaker said the dock and joycons will be bundled with the system but can be sold separately

          • MelloMori

            True, and some high end tablets can go for a lot. Then again, and don’t quote me on this, but I’m fairly certain that Nintendo’s the only console maker that sells their products at a profit, where sony and microsoft undervalue their consoles. At least that was the case during the time of the last two generations or so.

          • Ithsme

            I have to disagree. Pricing it that way would absolutely kill them in this market, where things like the PS4 and XBOX1 have a version priced at 300 dollars now, there’s just no way they’d do well in that kind of market.

      • RedRat EastGovnah

        It’s placeholders

  • Ithsme

    Also switch related:
    Our favorite japanese magazine, Corocoro, states that BotW is releasing in March, despite the rumors.

    Personally I’m inclined to believe this, because of the way they’ve been marketing the switch so far solely with BotW. It’d be odd for them to market it so heavily with the switch and then have it delayed until summer.

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      BotW is literally it’s only advertising point rn till switchmas

      • Ithsme

        That’s true, good point.

        I just don’t want to wait anymore to explore that beautiful hyrule. ;_;

        Also Corocoro has never been wrong that I can remember. I know zelda isn’t usually their specialty, but they definitely have more credibility than leakers.

    • Ithsme

      That’s a weird way to spell guzma and also ignore that last part.

      • Prince Fae

        ew.

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        guzma? that flop was basically a dog begging for an owner

        • Ithsme

          Lusamine wasn’t even the real villain, she doesn’t deserve the credit.

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            lusamine destroy guzma credibility as the villian. Point blank and the period

          • Ithsme

            If we’re getting really technical here, then Nihilego was the real villain of the game, not that puppet lusamine.

          • Lusamine wasn’t the puppet though. She wasn’t affected by Nihilego until the Mother Beast part

          • Ithsme

            Yes, she was. Nihilego had been posessing her for the entirety of the game.

          • ….No she wasn’t

          • Ithsme

            I could’ve sworn she was, but I can’t exactly tell you why. ._.
            Somebody back me up here?

          • No she was just obsessed with the beasts after Mohn disappeared into a portal

          • Ithsme

            Ok so I’ve heard that around then she became posessed by Nihilego and went crazy with the UB stuff, and that’s when she started treating her children cruelly. And then after she defused with Nihilego (in the ultra space, the physical fusion I mean) then she stopped becoming posessed.

            This all sounds really farfetch’d now that I think about it, but I swear I thought this was the case. Otherwise why suddenly after the final battle with her does she just start treating Lillie kindly again?

          • SpectralSeraph

            How to become best villian

      • SpectralSeraph

        Exactly

    • EarthenWarrior

      She’s THE WORST
      I honestly don’t think she did nothing more but the whole “She’s obviously a secret bad guy” cliche that can be smelt by anything with the slightest sense of smell
      does nothing more then be a bad parent and attempts to plunge the world into chaos and disarray but where’s the destruction? where’s all the rampant Ultra beasts AFTER THE FUCKING GAME, face it SHE’S EYE CANDY, her “Transformation fusion” just fucking eye candy that served very little impact than just looking like a villain

      Her team was very girly cliche, and she blinds you into thinking she’s this perfect villain but what did she honestly do, at least the other villains caused much more damage

      • SpectralSeraph

        Guzma even does the villian job better than her

          he’s just some angry dude who’s enacting revenge

            And best of all? He uses a Masquerain.. a mon everybody thinks is trash… and with those buffs? Yeah…. He teaches you not to underestimate it

            or Ground

          • SpectralSeraph

            Well to put it blunt, it can sweep

          • EarthenWarrior

            only when it has a quiver dance but after that, brother you are dead

          • SpectralSeraph

            Even without…. It hits a lot harder than you’d expect, considering the buffs it got

          • EarthenWarrior

            its basically a less fancy Volcarona and i eat those things for breakfast

          • SpectralSeraph

            It fits Guzma in a way

          • EarthenWarrior

            naw he should’ve had Armaldo
            he has the whole Scary bugs theme going on

          • SpectralSeraph

            Heres what I mean
            Masquerain has intimidate
            And its wings are literally meant to imitate a scary face, so it works
            Though I will say, I feel as if their are a few more bugs he could have had too

      • yeah so instead of having relatable well written characters lets have some nerds who want to get rid of the ocean and a living dorito

        • EarthenWarrior

          feh she’s all talk,

          • She unleashed a bunch of alines onto Earth. She abused her children. She fucking froze pokemon to keep them beautiful forever. She is insane and I love her for it

          • aliens* oops

          • EarthenWarrior

            and what did that do to us? nothing
            She says she unleashed Ultra beasts, but do we hear a BREAKING NEWS! UNIDENTIFIED MONSTERS ON A RAMPAGE MERMAID MAN WHERE ARE YOU?!
            nope all off screen and doesn’t even affect anything

          • So she is only a good villain if she directly targets the player… okay

          • SpectralSeraph

            Honestly? I liked her… but she literally just goes into a portal and summons a couple UBs …. I wish she did a little more

          • EarthenWarrior

            EXACTLY
            We only spent like 10 seconds in the Ultra Dimension

            they should’ve made it a gauntlet of puzzles and madness

          • SpectralSeraph

            Not just that… I honestly.. this might sound really stupid… would have found if you had to assist each Kahuna with the UBs (Make a ton appear) and than fight Lusamine once help was no longer required

          • EarthenWarrior

            No that sounds good
            WE SHOULD BE FIGHTING ULTRA BEASTS

            that way we know they’re actually doing something other them sitting on a bus stop twiddling their thumbs

          • SpectralSeraph

            I wanna say like three each or something..
            If anyone has played Rejuvenation, there is a segment when you fight a couple Deoxys’s… something like that would be good (But not with Rejuvenations story cause it has a lot of 3edgy5me moments)

          • EarthenWarrior

            a good villain actually gets RESULTS
            Do you honestly think we should’ve had a segment where Ultra Beasts actually attacked instead of a cheesy cut scene

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN I LOVE TEA

        • SpectralSeraph

          ….Archie was funny though
          But seriously? I prefer some of team skull for relatable

          • Ithsme

            Team skull, whether you consider them good villains or not, had an actual compelling story, unlike the AF.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Exactly, my favorite team easily

      • Ithsme

        Yeah her battle was really lackluster. I kept expecting her to send HERSELF out into battle, because she had fused with Nihilego and only had 5 pokemon, but nope. Just a dissapointing climax.

        • EarthenWarrior

          I rather fight Pokestar Studio extras
          And y’all know the one i’d fight *wink wink*

          • SpectralSeraph

            OOOH BOI

          • EarthenWarrior

            You know the one i’m talking about

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yep

          • Ithsme

            I actually don’t, never spent any time in there.
            That place was boring and stupid.

          • EarthenWarrior

            So was Ultra Space

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        lemme write you an essay why she is the best villian in Pokemon History:

        The Great Carbinkle
        Dr. Earthen Warrior
        Pokemon Studies 101
        1 January 2017
        The Mother Beast
        When it comes to Pokemon, many things have come cliches. Pikachu clones, HMs, annoying zubats, and a main villian team to stop. Sun and Moon brings a change in the pokemon tradition. Not only does it get rid of HMs, it introduces our first female viliian, Lusamine. As the President of the Aether Foundation, Lusamine is shown to have many good qualities of a leader. A caring trainer, a kind soul, and a killer fashion sense represents Lusamine perfectly. As the story progresses, we find out the Lusamine is not the perfect boss we met. She ends becoming the real villian of the story, leaving our boy Guzma in the shadows. Lusamine arc as a villian really shows how amazing she is. Her ability to manipulate people, her good team, her backstory, and her true intentions are few of the many qualities that qualifies Lusamine as the best villian in Pokemon history.

        When we first met Lusamine, we saw a lady on her forties looking like her twenties just taking care of the poor Corsolas. This makes the player believe that Lusamine really justs want to protect and love all the pokemon no matter what. Later on, we figure out that those are not Lusamine intentions. Lusamine real intentions was to open a wormhole and have the Ultra Beasts (UBs) to invade Alola. Lusamine manipulation skills are shown when she successfully makes her plans comes true. First Lusamine have tricked the entire Aether Foundation to do the dirty work thinking they were doing for the better good. Secondly, Lusamine tricked Guzma to do everything. She took advantage of Guzma personality and run with it. If it was not for the player, Lusamine plans would have succeeded.

        • EarthenWarrior

          blah blah blah she’s a mommy with a hot ass then goes nuts and does a buncha lackluster shit end of story

        • SpectralSeraph

          I’m sorry but…Lusamine’s goal morphed into chilling out with rock jellyfish in a world with trippy music
          Also, I would have had a harder time determining Archie as being a pokemon Villian than Lusamine. Also, the entire foundation? Faba exists and from the dialogue, some aether members seem quite aware ofwhat theyre doing

          I do like her, but still.

          • EarthenWarrior

            She was eye candy and her goal was full of holes

          • SpectralSeraph

            Though I will commend Pokemon on the effort…. just wish it was a bit more soild

          • EarthenWarrior

            not i brotha
            if there’s a single gap in that armor i will go in fists blazing

          • SpectralSeraph

            Just a tad bit annoyed about one thing…..
            Why did they not make a final battle with Guzma before ultra space where he had the UB02 of your game? It would fit him, he uses bugs

          • EarthenWarrior

            BECAUSE THEY PHONED IT IN

          • SpectralSeraph

            Imagine how amazing that would be fighting Guzma with a UB

          • EarthenWarrior

            i’m sure it would’ve been great TOO BAD IT DIDN’T HAPPEN

          • SpectralSeraph

            (Depression ensues)

          • EarthenWarrior

            eeeyup existence is misery so be as big a dick as you can before somebody stabs you in a parking lot

          • SpectralSeraph

            Pretty much

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          im not finished:

          Lusamine team is a pretty good team. Overall is one of the strongest teams when in comes to villians team aside from Cyrus. Clefable can stall you with calm minds, Milotic is overall one of the best water walls in the game, Bewear is a beast. High attack stat and natural bulk makes Bewear one of the strongest pokemon this generation. Lilligant can be deadly if overestimated with that STAB Leaf Storm. Same could be said with Mismagius and decent special attack and speed. The last thing that makes Lusamine team even stronger is her team’s totem aura. That right, Lusamine pokemon have an extra boost thats make them more scary to confront. Some pokemon villians, like Giovanni, needs to learn one or two things about Lusamine.

          Lusamine also had one of the saddest backstories in pokemon history. Mother of two children and wife of Doctor Mohn, Lusamine life looked completed. Sadly, Doctor Mohn dissapeared after experimenting with the UBs and Lusamine became a trainwreck. Her obsession with the UBs became very obvious that she forgot about her own children. She did not know this, but the impact on her children was so big that both, Lillie and Gladion, escaped because they did not want to deal with their mom anymore. Lusamine lost her husband, her children, and her sense and she could not realize it until it was too late.

          Lastly, Lusamine true intentions were deep. Lusamine wanted her husband back so bad that she would do everything to do bring him back. Even if that meant putting her life and the life of her acquantiances in danger. She even went as far as risking her life and fusing with an UB. Her obsession with the UBs became so much that she wanted to become one of them because maybe her husband became a UB too. Lusamine went through alot and seeing and understanding her backstory makes her true intentions very logical

          Lusamine is by far not only the best villian in pokemon history. But one of the best overall characters in Pokemon. Her charisma, brilliance, intelligence are superior over many other villians. Her team is something not to mess with. Her backstory is one of the most emotionals in the history of the franchise. Lastly, her intentions made Pokemon Sun and Moon one of the best, if not the best storyline in Pokemon.

            I honestly felt her kinda eh at times.. I get her backstory but …. still
            Look at some of the other stories in the game

            Pretty nice, gotta say

    • Ultron

      I like Cyrus more. His plan was more clear. I wasn’t even sure what she was trying to do. Was she just going to stay in the ultra space forever?

      • SpectralSeraph

        Yep, she watched spongebob as a child and decided to make her spongey role model proud and become the number one Jellyfisher in Ultra space

    I have to say, some of these dex entries in Sun and Moon are pretty fun to read (especially Elekid’s and Sabeleye’s). All of them bring up new but interesting facts that we didn’t know before, along with being original entries, and not the usual copy-and-paste entries from past gens.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Read the UB ones… they’re fun

      • Golden_Monferno

        Yeah, like Kartana’s is pretty cool and Guzzlord’s is suprising

  • RedRat EastGovnah
    • Ultron

      Why is she holding up 3 fingers in her left hand

          • Yeerp

          • Ultron

            It’s very cute

          • Thank you! I could’ve put a bit more polish into it but oh well

          • Ultron

            It’s pretty good as is

  • SpectralSeraph

    Random question… this annoyed me a little in XD and a bunch more in Sun and Moon…
    In XD Chobin gets into a groudon suit and fights while Lusamine embraces the dark side of rule 34 and … well
    Both transform, and it has literally no purpose….. Chobin’s wasn’t so bad since it was for humor, but what the hell is up with Lusamine?

    • SpectralSeraph

      What does fusion even do?

    • Stars version is goona make it so we have to fight her in her s̶e̶x̶y̶ Mother Beast form

      • SpectralSeraph

        I honestly doubt it (Inb4 someone hacks it and catches her)

    • EarthenWarrior

      THATS WHAT I’VE BEEN SAYING
      THERE IS NO SIGNIFICANCE OTHER THAN LOOKING GOOD

      EYE CANDY
      E-Y-E C-A-N-D-Y
      eye can·dy
      nouninformal
      visual images that are superficially attractive and entertaining but intellectually undemanding.
      “the film’s success rested on a promotional campaign showcasing its relentless eye candy”

      • She sexy and psychotic which isn’t a good combination irl but for a villain its the best kind of villain. Like her looking good is just a bonus to how well she is handled and how she interacts with other characters.

        • EarthenWarrior

          interacts shminderacts, she can’t coast on being a bad parent for her villainy

          • She totally can

          • EarthenWarrior

            Blind horsewhip

      • SpectralSeraph

        I do feel like Lusamine’s did have a purpose, but it was dropped for some stupid reason

    • Ultron

      This is why we need a third version, hopefully stars

      • SpectralSeraph

        Exactly
        (Please give Guzma a bug UB)

        • Ultron

          Also Volcarona

          • SpectralSeraph

            That wouldn’t work because…………
            Actually it would be fine…. but he already has five mons

          • Ultron

            Just drop Ariados or Masquerain

          • SpectralSeraph

            Not Masquerain… there is a symbolic meaning for it

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            explain pls

          • SpectralSeraph

            Guzma tries to act intimidating but is a rather scared person(Hence his response to Nihilego)
            Masquerain acts intimidating, is meant to mimic a scary face with its wings and literally comes from the word “Masquerade”, kinda like what Guzma’s tough guy act is

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      how many times i have to explain this ugh. Lusamine fusion with the UB to give her pokemon totem auras. No fusion = same first battle

      • SpectralSeraph

        I get this, but I feel like the Nihilego could have done it itself

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          not really, it is an UB it can do whatever the **** it wants. It does need Lusamine overall. It can be like “peace gurl im out” When it fuses with Lusamine, Lusamine has overall the power to put the totem aura to her pokemon

          • SpectralSeraph

            I know, but I feel like it could
            Though I will say…. it was hillarious to me how hard the legendary destroyed her

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            yeah lol

          • SpectralSeraph

            Basically
            Lusamine: “I LOST?! ANGER!! RAGE MODE ENGAGED!!!”
            Lunala: “Nope”

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            also i keep writting like im writting an academic essay help me

    • zess

      Maybe it will play more of a role in the anime. I was a tad bummed that I couldn’t fight her after the battle. You know knock some sense into her.

  • EarthenWarrior

    all this Villain makes me wonder who my Villainous team should be
    The goal of Team Quake’s leader Ilko (placeholder name) is to bring forth the destruction of the region though violent terrorism, establishing an authority of power, and resurrecting a long forgotten force of destruction

    • Team Angle, an offshoot of the Aether Foundation focused in Sinnoh. With me as that branch’s director and Fairy queen

      • EarthenWarrior

        Fake and Geey

          • EarthenWarrior

            Whatever my Villainous team actually wants to hurt people, to bring the region ton their knees

            What harm can that drum circle possibly do

          • We ain’t doing harm, hun. We are doing good in the world also I just said Angle instead of Angel oops lol. Lemme edit that

          • EarthenWarrior

            they start by hunting and catching extremely rare Pokemon
            they rough up science lab and steal research
            threaten to blow up a cliff dwelling town via seismic activity
            they’ve even infiltrated pokemon centers for a pokemon laundering scheme

          • That isn’t very helpful towards society

          • EarthenWarrior

            Ya Think?

  • SpectralSeraph

    I just thought of something….
    What if someone like Maxie or Archie, or even Cyrus got their hands on a UB…..

    • Ultron

      Cyrus w/ Guzzlord

      • SpectralSeraph

        No, Maxie would have that
        It swallows Oceans… and Maxie wanted the oceans to die

        • Ultron

          I was just thinking world eater fits better with Cyrus’ plan

          • SpectralSeraph

            I can see that…. though I feel like there might be better

  • SpectralSeraph

    I think I know what I want for the next Pokemon game…

    • EarthenWarrior

      one targeted for adults?

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        is not realistic at all

      • Do you realize how dumb that would be? Other than the copious amounts of waifus

        • EarthenWarrior

          no dumbass, i meant with a higher difficulty and way less hand holding

          • So a hard mode?

            But can we have waifus anyways

          • EarthenWarrior

            literally every Pokemon character in the world has been sexulalized one way or another

          • …so no more waifus?

          • EarthenWarrior

            only if there’s a fat female one in my age group

          • As long as we get a cute lesbian I’m down

          • EarthenWarrior

            ehh try getting that through

          • I have my trans beauty in the battle chateau, the implied lesbians in Sea Mauville in ORAS and its 2017 so anything is possible

          • EarthenWarrior

            yeah but a chubby female character that’s not old is NOT

          • Oh well not really? I also dont see why you dont like Lenora

          • EarthenWarrior

            She’s old and not even that thick ARE YOU PEOPLE BLIND

          • EarthenWarrior

            She’s just very light chub, mostly soft curves
            not what i want

      BW3
      In the other timeline, the nonmega begins to get distorted, and the UBs come through and good ol’ Ghetsis gets his hand on them…
      Some evidence says that the other timeline was destroyed… who would be better to do so than ghetsis….

      Yeah this sounds stupid but imagine taking on the UBs in their full potential alongside N and maybe the other protags!

      • Uhg. No. BW2 was so bad because they tried to make it about someone trying to rule the world instead of BW where it was about questioning the mechanics and absolutes. It was about how the world isn’t Black and White. Then the sequel threw that away by making Ghetsis evil for no reason and made him explicitly a bad guy with nothing to think about

        • SpectralSeraph

          He was a bad guy though…
          And the UBs have ….. very descriptive pokedex entries and I want to see WHY they got them

          • Yeah but Ghetsis wasn’t a major part in BW. It was the player and N’s story and it worked for the theme they were trying to explore. Ghetsis was just a way to show why N thinks the way he does. By casting him as an evil asshole who is evil for no reason, it just ruins it all. BW at least left so ambiguity around him

          • SpectralSeraph

            I just dunno who else would be good for this role….

          • Just dont make a sequel. Or if you are going to leave Ghetsis out of it and do something else with the grunts

          • SpectralSeraph

            Well… I would love to work alongside N

        • Ultron

          Bw 2 is still really fun though

            you cannot confiscate an entire pocket dimension
            it is accessibly only by sheer force of will and zany violent antics

      just the thing over and over AND OVER

      • Serenotic

        I know. This is a pretty lame line up.

        • Which is the same thing he’s talking about, though?

          I was following VGC, and trust me, Tapu Fini was considered garbage just 2 weeks to 1 month ago… so there’s metagame development right here. It’s not the same thing over and over, this is huge.

      • Chaos

        Be thankfully it’s not full of genies and heatran

        • EarthenWarrior

          just wait for bank,

          • That’s not how VGC works, BTW.

          • EarthenWarrior

            doesn’t matter, i’m basically done with Pokemon Battles now, i’m sick of fighting tapu lele and fini every friggin match

          • Yeah I think that’s a good idea, you should quit before you spiral into depression even more, from your self-imposed challenge.

          • EarthenWarrior

            its not a self imposed challenge
            its clear defiance to the legend heavy meta, because what that imposes is a strict set of Pokemon as the norm, and that stagnates extremely fast

          • You are allowed to use legends by the rules, but you “don’t”… so it’s a self-imposed challenge regardless of the meta or your “defiance” of it.

            But yeah your quitting competitive Pokemon is a good idea as it will make your life better and cure your depression.

          • EarthenWarrior

            fat chance i’ve fought like 13 times before 8 AM

          • Well you should stop it then, for health reasons.

          • Chaos

            VGC 2017 doesn’t care about bank.

    • Prince Fae

      at the very least its nice to know they are all pretty much only using one ultra beast and one legend but their variety is still garbage, but then again, I haven’t had a singles battle in like 4 years, doubles are the way to go, they are so much more fun

    • SpectralSeraph

      I mean, Araquanid is the best released mon of gen 7

      • Well, setting Tapu Koko aside, I can hardly deny that assertion.

  • EarthenWarrior

    so i need to burn off some excess aggression
    and nothing does that better than fakemons
    now i’ve been trying to perfect a Phoenix Pokemon, but rather than have the ironic fire bird i want to make a Fiery Peacock

    Peaphe
    The Peachick PKM
    Flame Body/Regenerator
    Fire/Flying
    a stupidly adorable gold and red chick Pokemon with very large black eyes and tiny ember like plumage on their head
    “Though very popular for its cute appearance one should never handle them, their feathers can reach temperatures exceeding 100F when startled”

    now i can’t think of a extremely clever name that mean violent firestorm and overwhelming beauty
    so far Furnix
    Fire/Flying
    Flame Body/Regenerator
    a majestic sleek bird with red, gold and orange feathers, long spreading wings and their….butt plumage normally held down looking like a stream of flames when presenting they spread wide and resembles a lotus mixed with a sun, and those head thingies are a slick crest of fire
    “Renowned for their unwavering beauty, they release scarlet flames from their tail feathers that incinerates boulders

  • RedRat EastGovnah
