A week ago Laura Dale, a video game journalist, participated in a Reddit AMA (‘Ask Me Anything’) session for the Nintendo Switch in which she claimed that the Pokémon Sun and Moon follow-up, codenamed Pokémon Stars, could feature 20 new Pokémon.

This is notable as Dale has been involved in leaking other information about the Nintendo Switch which has been proven accurate. She mentions that another gaming writer (who unceremoniously announced Pokémon Stars on the release day of Sun & Moon) didn’t think the inclusion was likely.

Where this leaves us, the fans, isn’t known, but it does raise a question: will their be Nintendo Switch exclusive Pokémon? While we have always had new forms or event legendaries for titles within the same generation, content has never been locked away on a separate console. This could make some uncomfortable if they can’t catch ’em all without ponying up what is likely to be $300 for the Switch this spring.

A Nintendo Direct focusing on the new console is just a week away, so we could see the title announced with more details then.

  • temporario23

    Well, fuck GameFreak if they do that.

    • Prima-Azuril

      That’s very inappropriate.

      • temporario23

        Maybe, but it’s also my most honest reaction.

        • Prima-Azuril

          That’s right.

  • MK126

    And all those new pokemon will have encounter rates between 1-10%

    • Prima-Azuril

      Ha. Ha.

  • anymonus

    as fucking if. S/M are the end of this “generation”, deal with that already.
    See ya next year with gen 8 on Switch

    • Ithsme

      There’s literally nothing to suggest that but okay…

      • anymonus

        exactly; literally nothing, that’s why Stars or anything else follow up to S/M won’t happen. Just pull S/M up in IDA and have a fun time seeing that S/M was planned ever since X/Y and actually, nothing else is.

        • Ithsme

          Nothing except rumors from sources who have repeatedly proven their credibility. It’s not confirmed, of course, but it’s not something to just ignore.

          • anymonus

            Far from ignoring it, that’s why I had the thought of looking up things in the ROM. X/Y predicted OR/AS which then again predicted S/M by game origin values. Sadly, I can’t find the original source on that because the site was hacked, but two unused game origin values were in OR/AS and guess what, we got two more games. S/M got nothing more, they fill up those slots.
            As for “Stars” to be Switch exclusive, different wireless communication make the games directly incompatible. Indirect compatibility, like Bank, would probably work, however there’s no reason they would ever do that.

          • Ithsme

            By that logic then we’d never get another Pokemon game though.

          • anymonus

            They’ve only run out of numbers for the console-specific titles, that’s basically it. It’s not a perfect explanation, but gen 8 is the next step.

  • Ithsme

    If stars is real, then I HIGHLY doubt we’ll see it at Switchmas. It seems to close to SM’s release to be announcing a game that’s basically an enhanced version.

  • sigh it will be a long time before i can buy the switch~

    • Ithsme

      I’ve been saving up for a while now, but I’m just worried about it selling out.

      • hope you can get one before it runs out!!

        • Ithsme

          Haha thanks!

  • EarthenWarrior

    Emphasis on COULD I seriously doubt that, they NEVER add any new Pokemon to a dex via remakes not once ever

    • anymonus

      Third game/sequels? They kinda kinda did with Deoxys/Giratina and they kinda did with Kyurem. Remakes? Megas are kinda equal to new mons in the game code. People argued “but they’re not new entries in the Pokedex” and yet we got new dex entries for them in S/M so that argument is dead tbh

      • EarthenWarrior

        ALL FORMS OF EXISTING POKEMON
        Not full fledged Pokemon

        • anymonus

          Of course, I don’t believe any rumor the slightest.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Basing on patterns. Lol dont be silly.

      • EarthenWarrior

        piss off you know its true

        • MenacingCascoon

          I dont think anyone knows the truth yet

          • EarthenWarrior

            pssshaw

  • TheXmasMonster6893

    I doubt there will be 20 new POKEMON in stars. Now 20 new FORMS yeah that’s a very good possibility. Very often in Japan when we get a new form for a Pokemon the Japanese promotion will call it a “brand new Pokemon!”. In the end it’s just a form. It’s likely the same kind of semantics here. I could very well see 20 new Alolan forms or even 20 new megas. They skipped megas for Sun and Moon to fully show off Z moves, but I don’t think megas are done for. I could see Stars being the start of Alola basically integrating what the rest of the world has more wholly. At the end of SuMo they had just gotten a Pokemon league and now Mega stones are making their way more wide spread into the region.Stars is definitely a real project if you ask me and I believe this person is also a reliable source as well. People can get things wrong while still being correct so I wanna say that what she said is at least partly true. Only time will tell, but that what I think lol

    • Vincentk

      I can agree to this.remember spiky ear pichu? They hype that up very seriously around that time calling a new Pokemon and everything. I like the pichu but it didn’t deserve that much marketing even if a movie was coming out at that but,but like you said Japan tends to do that lol

  • Ithsme

    Watch them all be UBs.

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      Or yeah they could all be UBs. Like I said in my post below, I doubt they’ll just be normal Pokemon. Forms are the best bet I believe lol

    • The Singular Kuppo

      I would love to see that XD

  • Spoopy-kun

    i think they’ll just be new megas and maybe more alolan forms

  • Shymin

    hmm… well it would be interesting. I just hope that it’s not the exact same game but now with 20+ new pokemon(if even that it’s probs just new forms or something), some dialogue changes or extra story would be nice.

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      Prolly won’t be. I wanna say one of the rumors from Eurogamer stated that the story would be more or less all new. I honestly don’t have any idea where the article they said that is now tho. I don’t think it was in their first article about the game, but in a subsequent one that featured rumors about a bunch of games. I could be wrong tho lol

  • MenacingCascoon

    I would hope if i have to pay that much money for a whole to console to buy a pokemon game there would be way more than 20 pokemon

    • MenacingCascoon

      And as stated prior, Im pretty sure they’ve said new pokemon when they mean form change/ mega. And since megas and form changes have pokedex entries it could seen as a new pokemon. Still better be more than 20

      • Prima-Azuril

        I’m pretty sure Stars/Gen 4 Remakes will be on 3DS too or only on it. Unlike all you skeptics, I still believe Game Freak would neve make a generation on two separate console.

        • EarthenWarrior

          you call us skeptics, i call you false believer

    • Ithsme

      I mean that’s not all they’d add I’m sure.

      Battle frontier pls

  • Serenotic
  • EarthenWarrior

    Earthen’s Demands for Stars (if not met severe repercussions are as followed)
    -a better Story: have much more fights with opponents with fuller teams that can’t be easily shot down, Ultra Beasts actually destroying and causing harm,
    -Ultra Space: lets face obvious facts it sucked, they should’ve made a whole distortion world puzzle gauntlet (and give Lusamine a frigging Nihilego)
    -Much better leveling options, or at least make Chansey chainable or at the least some kinda easy grind
    -more customization options, like more hats and backpacks,
    -make IVs passable from Hyper Training
    -Move Tutors and give Bewear Drain Punch
    -friend safari return or customizable summer villa that you buy plants and furniture that attract Pokemon you can battle/catch

    • Prima-Azuril

      Why do you hate Sun and moon so much????

      • EarthenWarrior

        so many flaws

        • Prima-Azuril

          In your eyes only

          • EarthenWarrior

            because i’m not a drooling mongoloid that sees it as some perfect game, it had flaws and i’m pointing them out

          • Prima-Azuril

            Those are you opinions though and I have my own opinion.

          • EarthenWarrior

      • > There’s no new “good” Ground types.
        > Story takes too long to slog through.

        • Ithsme

          > Grinding is too hard
          > BP grinding is a drag

        • EarthenWarrior

          the dex is smaller and small dexes piss me off, i want variety, not just a series of Unique Pokemon
          literally every Pokemon introduced has a gimmick
          and i expect a fair amount of pokemon of each type to be honored, like Todgedemaru the only freaking Steel type that isn’t a reskin or legend
          seriously you cannot honestly think that some types deserve less while others got more to work with

          and the story was bleh at best, it had some interesting points but it fell apart right when things got good

          • Ithsme

            Yeah, the uneven amount of types in the dex was sorta ridiculous.

          • EarthenWarrior

            i know right, like its just plain unfair
            And legends and Variants do not count

          • Prima-Azuril

            I doubt 801 Pokemon can fit onto 4 tiny islands.

          • SpectralSeraph

            They could add more ice types fgs

          • Prima-Azuril

            Pff Global Warming denies your request.

          • General consensus is that the story is good; but it’s ok. You are entitled to thinking it is poor because of lack of “mature” elements that you may expect from Call of Duty games.

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      While I’ll agree with fuller teams and a more fleshed out Ulstra Space, I have to ask what is it about the story you don’t like? SuMo had an AMAZING story!!! It was so interesting, powerful, and heartwarming (I assume this is the sort you don’t like lol) and was over all well paced for the most part. A really solid game if you ask me lol

    • SpectralSeraph

      And Leech Seed being a move tutor move

  • The Singular Kuppo

    Cant wait to see all of these new pokemon be in the end new alolan forms

  • Yu Narukami

    This is so weird; not long ago, I stumbled upon a /vp/ thread that had an image of around 20 silhouettes, including potential Alola forms and fossil Pokemon. According to the posters, using reverse image search yielded no results, leading many to wonder where the image came from.

    After so many curveballs were thrown at us during Sun and Moon, I’m willing to believe anything.

    • Would you happen to have a link? sounds intriguing

  • ShinyXatu

    Who wants to bet that 10 of them are Ultra Beasts?

    • Ithsme

      Who wants to bet that ALL of them at UBs? xD

    • Yu Narukami

      I’d bet a small Nugget or two.

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      I could see that. Can’t imagine all for them will be UBs, but some for sure lol

    • Prima-Azuril

      I prefer not to bet.

    • temporario23

      Y’know, I wouldn’t mind that at all.

  • TheXmasMonster6893

    Here’s an idea. So in the run up to SuMo many of the rumors we got that actually had real stuff ended up getting some small things wrong like not having Alolan forms in the actual game. What if the leakers from those rumors actually had general info and assumed the forms would be in SuMo, but those forms were actually being held off from Stars? So in stars we could see Alolan Arcanine, Alakazam, and Dodrio. What people think?

    • Yu Narukami

      Will we get that fighting type Arbok?

      Though, I doubt we’ll get Alolan Alakazam, considering it already has a Mega and the vanilla Abra line is already in the Dex.

    • Ithsme

      And the SS Anne!

      That actually makes a ton of sense. I heard a rumor (I guess it’s a rumor) that GF was working simultaneously on SM and stars, and that a few months before release they stopped to focus on SM. It’s not that out of the question to think that the leakers may have had mixed info.

    • EarthenWarrior

      no more Aololan Forms, because of them i’ll never see my Mega Golem which becomes a spike boulder

      and if we get more for god’s sake MAKE THEM PURELY ENVIRONMENTAL seriously the way they shoehorned BS reasons for changes

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Ok so no more Alolan forms because you didn’t get what you wanted. Gotcha makes sense lol

        • EarthenWarrior

          i never said that, i’m saying make alola Forms actual environmental adaptations
          so far the only ones that get a pass is Exeggutor, Ninetales and Snowslash (but i don’t agree on their secondary typing for the ice ones) and maybe Muk but only because i liked that they made it dark because of the chemical changes making its metabolism go haywire and causes it to violently eat everything in sight

          but the rest are purely just reskins for lousy reasons,
          Raticate living at night, Meowth being raised by royalty, Marowak becoming a Fire/Ghost type just because of Grass types (they still have water types to deal with too) and Diglett growing whiskers just to monitor above ground they’ve done that fine for years

          • Prima-Azuril

            They should have Magikarp and Gyarados covered in poison due to the water pollution.

          • EarthenWarrior

            that makes ZERO sense Magikarp live in polluted water all the time because of their severe hardiness, unless it was bathed in a pool of 1005 chemical waste then it would be a mutation

          • Prima-Azuril

            Then have the Vanish line be water types and all watery because of global warming.

          • EarthenWarrior
          • TheXmasMonster6893

            Ok I will give you that. Better reason for the changes would be better. Most of them in my opinion are fine excuses, but I get what you’re saying. The only one I think they really got lazy about is Raichu’s excuse. They probably could have come up with a better reason than it eating pancakes lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            exactly if they made their reasons have more believable reasons i’d have no choice but to accept them, but they just stopped caring

          • Armaggedon16

            I have to agree. I liked the idea of Regional variants when they were first announced,but they weren’t well executed at all.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Don’t forget Exeggutor unleashing its inner dragon

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Alolan forms that arent based only of Kanto pokemon, i would like to see that

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Agreed. I’d also like to see that. The idea of Alolan forms is so interesting. I’d love to see it spread to the other regional Pokémon

      • Yu Narukami

        Going back to silhouette I was talking about, many assumed one of the shadows was an Alolan Gothitelle. It’s something.

  • Prima-Azuril

    I have some ideas for a few of the possible 20 new Pokemon:

    1)A pokemon based off of a coconut. (Type- Grass/Fairy, Grass only, Grass/Water)
    2) A thunderstorm Pokemon. (Type – Water/ELectric, Water/Flying, Electric/Flying)
    3) Pokemon based off of a rainbow. (Type- Normal/Water, Water/Fairy, Fairy/Normal)
    4) A Pokemon based off of a planet (gassy and rocky forms) (Type-Water/Rock, Water/Grass, Rock/Poison)
    5) A Tiki Pokemon (Type – Rock/Ground, Rock/Fire)
    6) Dolphin Pokemon (Type – Water/Fairy, Water, Water/Psychic)
    7)Turkish Cat Pokemon (Type – Normal/Ground, Fairy/Rock, Grass/Ground, Dark/Fairy)
    8) Dictator Pokemon (Type – Normal/Dark, Dark, Dark/Poison)
    9) Gold Pokemon (Type – Ghost/Rock, Rock/Psychic)
    10) Kimono Girl Pokemon (type – Ghost/Fairy, Ghost/Psychic)
    11) Smoothie Pokemon (type – Grass/Water)
    12) Hot Pepper Pokemon (type – Fire/Grass)
    13) Instrument Pokemon (type – Steel/Psychic)
    14) Carbink Evolution
    15) Chatot Evolution
    16) Buneary Pre-Evolution
    17) Girafarig Evolution
    18) Skarmory Pre-Evolution
    19) Ghost Type Eeveelution
    20) Disco Ball Pokemon (type – Steel/Ghost, Steel/Electric)

    • Yu Narukami

      There are a few rumored Pokemon I wish came true, so here’s hoping.

      We never did get that dolphin, did we?

      • Prima-Azuril

        Tapu Fini but not really, so nope we didn’t. I hope they also add a few more evolutions and pre-evolutions to older Pokemon, I loved when Game Freak did that.

        • Yu Narukami

          Wasn’t Tapu Fini more of a marlin?

          Also, I think the reason Game Freak moved away from evos/pre-evos was because of Gen 4.

      • Are you a boy or a girl?

        Isn’t Lanturn a dolphin?

        • EarthenWarrior

          no? why would anyone think its a dolphin its clearly a fish

    • Ithsme

      Dictator Pokemon tho. 😮

      • Prima-Azuril

        Leader Pokemon, Dictator Pokemon, anything around that.

        • Ithsme

          But what would it look like?

          • Prima-Azuril

            Blond hair, a white-blue-red shirt, speaks in French.

          • Prima-Azuril

            Never mind that concept..

        • The Singular Kuppo

          Dont we have enough with yungoose?

          • Yu Narukami

            Yungoos evolves into a hard boiled detective. It won’t stop until it gets perp/dinner.

          • Prima-Azuril

            Forget my ida of the dictator getting to confusing now.

          • Yu Narukami

            No, see, I’m steering away from anything politics related. That’s I’m reminding people that Gumshoos was based on the general idea of a detective, not a political figure that Game Freak could care less about.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Unless the sun sets

    • EarthenWarrior

      i have a coconut pokemon already and its way better
      Cocojoe and Cocomando
      Solider PKM
      Grass/Fire
      Skill Link/Sniper
      a tiny wooden coconut Pokemon with a funnel like mouth and a coconut half on its heat with a tiny palm tree sprouting out, tiny cup like feet and no hands and their bodies have a camouflage pattern
      “their bodies are filled with combustable gasses, by absorbing sunlight they can ignite their gasses and spit pellets over 60ft away’
      then it evolves into Cocomando
      Cocomando
      The Mortar PKM
      Grass/Fire
      Skill Link/Sniper
      a bigger more humanoid Pokemon with a large coconut for a face with a long tube on for a mouth, their helmet palm leaves get bigger and now have a bushy shoulderpads that they use to conceal themselves, they grow mitten like hands and their feet are still peg like cups
      “tactical and precise, they lob hard shelled pellets at opponents that can explode, by igniting their internal gasses they spit fiery pellets strong enough to blow apart a train”

      • you could also have said that normally, without insulting someone’s ideas

        • EarthenWarrior

  • maybe she was talking aout mega evolutions.

  • Armaggedon16

    We thought the same would happen with gen6, but it didn’t. And it won’t happen this time either

    • Prima-Azuril

      You need to belieeeeeeeeve

  • Prince Fae

    I stg if these are all UB’s that we just randomly catch out in the wild I will not be pleased, however I will accept new ultra beasts but I want them to have a story

  • Hayley Waalen

    What about Tapus

    • Prince Fae

      if they introduce another island down in the bottom left corner (like I have a hunch they will, there are too many clouds there) then I can see that, maybe a dark/fairy one with a similar colouring to their shinies, based on a bat

      • Hayley Waalen

        Or a Normal/Fairy based on a dove

        • Prince Fae

          I love that too

    • Yu Narukami

      There’s only 4 islands.

  • TheNintendoChip

    If there’s going to be any new Pokemon, I would rather them be cross-gen evolutions

    • Yu Narukami

      People are supposedly sick of cross gen evolutions.
      Remember all the complaints about Gen 4?

      • Prince Fae

        I hate gen 4 but that was one of the things they did right in my eyes, the pokemon are top notch

        • Yu Narukami

          Gen 4 will always have a special place in my heart and I am looking towards the inevitable remakes.

          • Prince Fae

            Im looking forward to a remake too, maybe they will fix most of the things I disliked about it, like a pacing and stuff

          • Yu Narukami

            Didn’t Platinum fix a lot of the mistakes D & P made?

          • Prince Fae

            no

          • ???? What? Yes it did. More fire types in the dex, better region design, better story, battle frontier, great post game, better pacing, new forms, like there was so much there that improved upon DP. Platinum is great

          • Prima-Azuril

            I love cross-gen evolutions! To this day, I still hope for a Carbink evolution that’ll link it with Diancie (not literally, just design-wise).

          • Prince Fae

            O_O

          • Yes

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            You and me are in the same corner my friend. I found DP such a drag…..It’s such a grind to get through (it took me a whole year to beat) and I found the rewards at the end less than worth it. I know people say Platinum is better, but DP already ruined it for me. I love the Pokemon and region in general, but the lack of diversity and slowness of the game made me hate it…lol

          • mario9785ify

            Gen 4 is the best gen imo even has my favorite starter(infernape) and I love ryphirior

  • SomeGuy

    In a perfect world: 5 New, 5 Evos, 5 Mega Evos, 5 Alolans.

    • Armaggedon16

      No More Alolans. All of them except Ninetales,Sandslash and Exeggutor are terrible.

      And I don’t see the new Alolans Pokémon getting evos.
      Most of them already have high enough stats

      • Prima-Azuril

        They should just make a Mr Mime Alolan Form which is a woman.

        • SpectralSeraph

          How bout no

  • MelloMori

    Ehh, I’ve made my feelings in the Starts rumors enough so I won’t bog people down with that. All I’ll throw in this time is that their have been some questions of Laura Kate Dales credibility with her leaks, given she has back peddled on some of her initial claims when information that contradicted her claims came out. We’ll see sooner or later what stars is, if it even is a thing, though honestly I can’t see GF really thinking its a good idea to gate 20 pokemon behind a roughly $300-500 dollar price wall, and on hardware that hasn’t proven successful over the 3DS which has.

    • Ithsme

      Taking back claims and such doesn’t negate credibility IMO.

      • MelloMori

        For me it does given she defended the point for so long and only verified her claim with a single source according to her, which seems a bit questionable.

        • Ithsme

          ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      Well whether She is credible or not the rumors about Stars don’t originate from her so it really doesn’t matter. Imo stars is in fact a real project and will likely be announced by May of this year. And Like I’ve said I think the new Pokemon will likely just be new forms/megas. they’ve done game exclusive forms before and there isn’t anything stopping them from doing ti againlol

      • MelloMori

        True they have done exclusive form before, though I think its just a bit excessive in this case. Demanding that people buy the newest pokemon game to have the new forms is fairly reasonable, but demanding people buy a new console along with a new game and any other things that they’ll need is a bit of an extreme jump in my eyes. Then again I’m the person who doesn’t think that stars, if real, would be a main series game, so who knows really.

        • TheXmasMonster6893

          They have to move onto the system at some point. There is no difference between them putting a new gen on the Switch and putting up a new gen 7 game. From what we’ve heard Stars will be a new story. That coupled with the possible new Pokemon/forms/megas is more than enough. The idea that people shouldn’t have to buy a new system in order to play a game is not a new idea, but it certainly is a silly one. Eventually everyone will have to buy a Switch if they want to play the newest games. That’s how this industry works. lol

          • MelloMori

            Well yes,your right in one sense. If the switch is going to be the 3DS successor, then yes it has to be moved eventually, but the thing is Gamefreaks not usually the fastest to abandon old tech. Remember that gen five could have easily launched on the 3DS if they delayed the game in Japan, but they didn’t given the DS had far to many sales to take the gamble on some new tech that people might not buy into right away. The same can be said here. Before the holiday season the 3DS was sitting at about 60 million units sold, and that’s a pretty big market to cut out and assuming that everyone’s going to buy a switch at launch, and even then sales would still probably be less then putting it on the 3DS. What makes more sense is for them to eventually put it on the switch, but in a couple of years, after any shortages are taken care of, theirs a bulky enough library to justify the machine as more then a pokemon box, and Nintendo can meet the sudden demand, but again those are my opinions.

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            I will agree that GF is not typically one to jump to the next system right form the get go. I would say that’s partially due to their laziness tho. Back when they were developing gen 5 Iwata was making a push for them to develop a 3D game, but they basically said they wanted to stick to pixels as they were comfortable with them and didn’t want to do 3D. Iwata’s word obviously pushed them ultimately as gen 6 was in 3D. I would say that as times change they’re delay to the next system will become lesser and it’s very possible this time they are making the jump almost right away. As for staying on the 3DS I’d say that it’s over stayed it’s welcome at this point. I like the 3DS very much, but its tech is so outdated now. SuMo have pushed it to its limits and another game would be a waste on it. Each installment needs to offer something of an improvement, even just slightly. The 3DS really has nothing more to offer other than just being readily available.

          • MelloMori

            True, and if you were only speaking on the OG 3DS, I’d agree, but we can’t denying there is that pretty big elephant in the room that is the New 3DS. The tech from that is still pretty good, and because of it you could see them getting another couple years out of the devise, at least in my mind, and because of it being a 1.5 device, their’s no need to not put it on the regular 3ds. it might run like crap on it, but as long as you allow it to and put a little tag on it saying best on the new 3ds, people really wouldn’t care.

            But again time will tell with what we’ll see. Like I said I don’t think that Stars is going to be a main series game, much less a third version since they haven’t done one since Platinum. But we’ll see. Here’s to hoping what ever GF come up with turns out to be something successful.

        • Prince Fae

          but wouldn’t that be smart on their part? pokemon is going to sell no matter what and that will help push the console even more. I mean you don’t have to buy it, but nothing in life is free

          • MelloMori

            In a sense, yes, but you could also say that Mario sells no matter what, which it does to a degree. The problem in my eyes is that Nintendo just made a huge push with the 3DS this last year, still has a strong lineup of games on the horizon, and trying to release a main series game at a new consoles launch might leave people feeling burned, more so if it turns out that the switch really doesn’t work well as a handheld device, or worse, isn’t intended to be Nintendo’s main handheld device, but that’s getting into a whole different debate.

            Generally for me it just feels like a lot of this is things that people want to hear and thus believe, but when looking to GF and how they’ve handled pokemon, it leaves me skeptical.

  • mario9785ify

    Oh if this is true then I’ll be hyped to get a third version instead of playing it and being like “ugh Im only doing this for the new forms of pokemon”

  • SpectralSeraph

    20 mons? Watch them be all grass bug and electric type

    • SpectralSeraph

      And Alolan forms

    • Ultron

      Need more fire and dark alola mons

      • SpectralSeraph

        Yep..

  • The thing that bugs me, is why hide 20 Pokemon out of Sun and Moon’s datamine and put them in a third version? It doesn’t make any sense to me. Though it would bring the total of new mons up to 101 for this gen, that is if all of the Pokemon are newly introduced Pokemon.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Maybe because they were still adding these last few in and once the datamine happened decided to nope out?

      • EarthenWarrior

        that would never be the case

    • Ultron

      Because if there is a main series game on the switch, they’d probably build it from the ground up, therefore not being in sun and moons coding

      • It’s time to… switch it up

        • Ultron

          I’m hyped. I hope it’s true. I love the 3ds, probably my favorite console ever, but it’s holding pokemon back. It’s the second highest grossing videogame franchise, time for it to get some higher treatment

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            Yea give it the HD treatment

  • TheXmasMonster6893

    Does anyone know where the Switch rumors from today are? I keep seeing people talking about them on Twitter, but no one has linked

    • MelloMori

      I’ve been following Game explain personally, though their largely getting it from peoples twitter. So far the big ones are that Breath of the Wild is a launch title, and Mother 3 is coming to the switch, which isn’t going to happen. That dreams is dead and long buried.

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Oh I forgot about GameXplain. I’ll look there. Thanks lol

        • MelloMori

          No worries. Though I’ll be the first to say I think their going a little to heavy with these rumors given that we’re all slowly setting ourselves up to getting upset when a lot of these rumors turn out to be false, like they usually do.

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            Idk many of the rumors are coming for people that have good track records. All the details might not be 100%, but I’d say anything that involves Eurogamer and Emily Rogers are likely to be mostly real.

          • MelloMori

            Euro gamer maybe, but Emily Rogers has kinda lost a lot of her credibility over the years, one of her biggest messup’s being Mother 3 coming to the Wii U. I’m not saying that their all wrong, but their are cases where they might have bits and pieces of real info, but then make assumptions that turn out wrong.

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            True, but it’s possible Mother 3 was set to come to the Wii U, but got scrubbed for some reason. I won’t say that she is 100%, but it’s not like she could know everything change Nintendo will make. She only knows what she is told and if things change then it makes her look bad even tho she didn’t do anything.

          • MelloMori

            That though again is one case of her information being wrong, and at the time it was very specific information, saying that it was going to be shown at E3, but I get what your saying. But at the same time I don’t feel she’s without blame. When people reveal these rumors from their sources their openly putting their necks on the line. They have to speak out saying they openly believe what their sources are telling them, and if their wrong, then they made a bad call trusting their sources. We’ll see in like ten-ish day’s how much of what has been rumored is true, and then we’ll likely see a lot of people turn against these leakers if they are proven false given the average person would think that you could verify the information with another source, or simply check in with them to make sure that the info’s still good. But again we’ll see soon enough.

    • Ithsme

      What switch rumors from today?

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        That’s what I was trying to find out lol

  • SpectralSeraph
    • Vincentk

      Well that was fast. I don’t even know what I am looking at exactly ub

      • Vincentk

        Ub perhaps.I don’t like the design of any of the ub really but these look worse to me

        • SpectralSeraph

          It’s fake afterall

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      Oh man I can’t wait for Stars to actually be revealed. It’s gonna be so amazing hahaha

    • The Singular Kuppo

      They look…… weird………very weird

      • SpectralSeraph

        I like the dragon snek one

    • Golden_Monferno

      That looks sick and actually legit

      • SpectralSeraph

        Yep

  • Armaggedon16

    This Stars rumor made me realize that the Water Arcanine Rumour never came true,but the same rumor was correct on a lot of other things..

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      water arcanine would have been an incredible pokemon competititve wise

      • Armaggedon16

        I know. And I really wanted Arcanine to get a mega or an Alolans since it’s one of my favourite Pokémon, but we got freaking Rainbow Muk and Diglett with hair instead

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          not a fan of both design wise, but competitive wise A-Muk is a beast. A- Diglett is a flop that lost its only niche in competitve

        • Vincentk

          I wanted to see aloan arcanine too.the more people talked about it the more i just wanted it to be done just cause

    • TheXmasMonster6893

      In my post below I said that maybe the rumors that got some parts correct and some part worng actually got them entirely correct. Maybe water Arcanine is actually in stars? lol

      • Armaggedon16

        Could be, but I still don’t buy the stars rumor. Only time will tell

  • thegreatcarbinkle

    this better be true, i want some new pokemon

  • RedRat EastGovnah

    I want this actually, it be new and different to see pokemon introduced after the first games, and it would give us reasons to be more hyped

  • pokedigijedi

    Yeah, I don’t believe it, they’ve never done it before and they certainly not going to do it now. If anything they might introduce new Alolan forms (I want water snake Ekans and Arbok please)

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      Traditions change

      • thegreatcarbinkle

        and Sun and Moon is a clear example for that. They got rid of HMs

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          and gyms

      • pokedigijedi

        I can’t deny that, but in this case if they do, do it, I am going to have to see it in order to believe it, nothing personal

  • Idk why people would be so upset about this. D/P remakes and Gen 8 are going to be on the switch anyways

    • RedRat EastGovnah

      idk why people want stars on the switch AND 3ds it would be a waste of time to make the same game on two different devices

      • Ithsme

        Plus SM is pushing the limits of the hardware already. Making another game for it would just be holding the potential back.

        • RedRat EastGovnah

          look at hyrule legends, Yoshi wooly world even Super mario maker! all ported to handheld and they looked terrible compared to their HD counterparts. I say if pokemon goes on the switch it should just be there not on both

      • Vincentk

        The same can be said for smash bros

    • MelloMori

      Well two things: 1. Don’t assume that D/P remakes and Gen 8 would come to the switch since one of those isn’t confirmed and in general we really don’t know what Nintendo really plans to do with the switch. Assuming things its the quickest way to make an ass out of yourself in the future, and we’ll have to see how things go. If it does go that way, then the majority of us who are resistant will probably be on board, but at this point we really don’t know what to expect.

      2. I can’t speak for everyone, but honestly I don’t have high hopes of the switch being able to merge two markets, no matter how hard Nintendo tries to force them, since nobody(and please tell me of a case that has succeeded in the past) has really been able to do so before. Really if I were being super negative about it I would say that I see it appealing to people that want a good homecolsole from Nintendo, but it ulitimately being ignored by the handheld community, or at worse it crashing almost as bad as the Wii U given it might not be able to find a proper market, since even with the ease of porting people might still favor the PS4 or XBone, and the handheld market might simply say screw Nintendo for making them pay for a $300-400 for a box to play pokemon and inturn push dev’s to stay with the 3DS, or even urge Nintendo to make a new Handheld proper, which won’t really help the switch.

      And I’m really not trying to be negative by any means. I want to see the switch succeed, but I feel like the closer we get to the reveal the more critical we have to be of the facts. That the last real attempt to make something similar to the switch(in terms of a high power handheld), being the Vita, backfired as dev’s really didn’t see much of a reason to make games for it since it either cost too much, or it wouldn’t really bring in enough money to make it worth it for them. The switch really won’t have troubles from a triple A dev in that sense, but the double A market might reject the machine. As well, we have further evidence of how hard it can be to merge markets with things like Super Mario Runner kinda doing less well then expected. Its doing ok in sales, but its probably far less then anyone would have guessed having a Mario game on mobile, with the general consensus being that the Mobile Market doesn’t want it, and those who are enjoying it being largely those of hardcore Nintendo fans and the usual handheld crowd.

      And by all means please tell me why you don’t see these things are issues or concerns, or even how you think Nintendo could get around them. Because from where I’m standing 90% of people talking about the switch simply seem to be ignoring the concerns that people have; telling them to shut up or that they don’t matter, and others actually so have some valid points that do allow us who are concerned to see things from a different perspective. I want to get hyped and see this things as a huge success, but everything we’ve seen over the years seems to actively suggest that the Switch could either be a huge success, or a massive failure, and it all depends on who they try to appeal to and what market they go after.

    • temporario23

      So, you actually think it’s a good idea for Sun & Moon to be the only Gen 7 games for the 3DS? If that happens, I might actually not use Bank to transfer my Gen 6 mons cause I don’t want them stuck in such an incomplete game.

      • Sun and moon aren’t incomplete though? If anything X and Y were

        • temporario23

          But X & Y had ORAS to complement them, which is my point. If Sun & Moon are the only Gen 7 games (and the last overall) for the 3DS, they’ll be forever isolated.

          • Vincentk

            X an y had alot of things in complete especially story wise. I can agree with sun and moon too only because I expected them to finish up some stuff left unsaid in x and y but instead they just go hey here is zygarde -_-

          • Jackattack72

            You can breed to get non Alola Pokemon. An NPC tells you that in the game. I’m not sure how it works with cubone, egg and pikachu. But the ones that pop from eggs Forsyth have a chance

    I was very disappointed when Silvally transformed into pure types instead of preserving the Normal type as the first one. I thought it was going to bring us all the Normal/* combinations.

    A Normal/Ghost would rock: 3 inmunities, 1 weakness.
    The Rock/Ghost could be a grave.

    I think 4 of the new Pokemon will be the Fossils, I mean some time would have passed since Sun and Moon, so maybe they excavated new fossils that are exclusive to Alola.

  • Chaos

    New Pokemon introduced mid-generation is the correct direction for Pokemon to go in. It keeps the metagame fresh, prevents competitive battling from getting too stale.

    I’ve been asking for this since BW, so if it does happen it would be a welcome.

    Finding female snorunt is so hard. I found a HA Glailie but not even one female snorunt.

  • Prima-Azuril

    I came up with some fantastic ideas for Gen 8:
    a) Gen 8’s Cat Pokemon; based on Garfield. Its name would be Purrest. Type: Normal-Fairy

    b) Pokemon based on a flag, known as Drapooky. Type: Ghost-Flying

    c) Disco Insect Pokemon, name is Buggie. Type: Bug-Psychic.

    d) Pancake-Ghost Pokemon, known as Pancreep. Type; Ghost-Normal

    e) Wooly Crab Pokemon, known as Knitacean. (Type; Water-Grass)

    f) Maple Pokemon, known as Syren (Syrup + Siren). Type: Water

    g) Political Bird Pokemon, also known as Gauchirp and Droibird. (Gauchirp – Flying-Fairy, Droibird – Flying-Dark)

    • Prima-Azuril

      By the way a few of the ideas I got by listening to Moskau and Rasputin so if you see any political Pokemon, don’t blame it on me HEY!

    • DTheConqueror

      a) Alolan Persian Basically
      b) Unlikely
      c) Love to see that as long as it isn’t basically disco ledian
      d) What Alolan Raichu eats
      e) Maybe Crabrawler branch evo
      f) Should be a Grass/Water type with sap sipper.
      g) Don’t know bout that

      • Prima-Azuril

        a) Nah, it’ll be light yellow and it eats Vaniluxe, Pikipek and Rattata.

        • DTheConqueror

          Alolan Raticate would be very Caloric though. Add a lasagna Pokémon for it to eat.

          • Prima-Azuril

            Of course! I’ll have Jynx evolve into a Lasagna Pokemon! Sure it’ll be completely random, but we already have a fish = octopus, cotton candy dogs, flamingo death dancers, so why not a humanoid Pokemon into a human-ATE Pokemon?

  • I should stop watching game design videos and actually make a game aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

      That’s awesome! So jealous, my basement is just storage + spiders.

      • dont have a basement anymore

        • Ithsme

          Anymore? As in you moved, or something happened to your basement?

          • We used to have a basement…. before the war

        I don’t got one! And I want those spiders

        • Ithsme

          I’d gladly give you the spiders, they give me the creeps.

          • SpectralSeraph

    • Prima-Azuril

      I like the Far-Eastern cultured lamp floating graciously like a stalking Drifblim, waiting for its prey at its weakest moment to grab, choke and slaughter above you seat, it’s so beautiful!

      • Prima-Azuril

        Seriously, I think that room is amazing!

        • EarthenWarrior

          it took me all day yesterday to clear out my Mom’s friend super rich house (and she’s moving into a nicer already furnished house) and she let us have any of her old furniture for free, this included an L Couch some nice desks and that t.v stand

          but damn i’m still sore all over

          • Prima-Azuril

            Ooh

      • EarthenWarrior

        also if you zoom in
        there’s a tiny chibi Thor on the end

        • Prima-Azuril

          I think I can see it….if I squint enough.

    I wanted this as the shiny so bad

    • Prima-Azuril

      THAT SHINY IS BEAUTIFUL!

      Best Starter + Best Colour = Best thing ever!

    • Ithsme

      Yeah primarina’s shiny kinda sucks. It had so much potential lol

    • EarthenWarrior

      nrrrghh i cannot deny my love of the goth look

      • Purple/Pink + Black is my favorite color combination.

        • Ithsme

          I prefer a royal dark red and gold.

          • ooooo nice and kingly

          • Ithsme

            Put that palette on any shiny and it’s an insta fave for me.

          • idk pink is one of my favorite colors and I dont like alot of pink shinies.

            http://i194.photobucket.com/albums/z197/Samkipped/pinkies.png

            I do adore ones like Lopunny, Jumpluff and Furret though

          • EarthenWarrior

            BLEEHEEGEHHHHHHHJHHHHHHHH TOO MUCH UGLY PINK

          • EarthenWarrior

            hmmm unsurprisingly i prefer dark earth tones

            like my fantasy color scheme is Brown, Yellow Tan and grey

            but my evil attire is soot black, blood red and maybe silver (fun fact all of my evil demonic forms my right eye splits vertically into two demon eyes while the left is unchanged)

        • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

          I feel bad

          • Ithsme

            Don’t feel bad, it’s not your fault. I fell for it just as much as you did.

          • MelloMori

            Don’t man. You saw something that looked real, and someone said it wasn’t. However it did start a good discussion, so you did good. Keep your head held high as you take that walk to Earhten’s Basement.

    • EarthenWarrior

      well you know the consequences

    • DTheConqueror

      Get ready for the Backlash…

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        Hey I fell for it. Not my fault photoshop is crazy good these daysb

        • SpectralSeraph

          WElp…..
          I forgive ya

  • Ithsme

    Hey below there was a comment asking about the source of recent switch rumors. What rumors were they talking about (I don’t want to miss any)?

    • MelloMori

      Gamexplain is probably the easiest to follow

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      Laura Kate Dale is ur best bet

      • Ithsme

        I mean what rumor? Not the source.

        • MelloMori

          The current ones are that Breath of the wild is a launch title and Mother 3’s coming to the switch. Next I’m guessing that half life three is coming to the switch with VR support. Sounds about as likely as mother 3 at this point.

          • Ithsme

            xD

            Hey, they did tease Mother 3 at E3 2014, so I have that hope to hold onto.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

          • This physically hurts me

          • Ithsme

            I don’t even want M3 to play it, I just want it because I feel like it’s owed at this point.

          • MelloMori

            Yeah, but its been three years. I’ve given up hope at this point because even if they did release it people would probably be disappointed since it can’t live up to the hype/nostalgia anymore.

  • Prima-Azuril

    I’m still waiting for Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 3 for the Wii U.

    • DTheConqueror

      Might want to start a nuzlocke, cuz it’ll be a while…

  • Rocky Rochford

    Stars (purely a codename) isn’t supposed to be discussed during the presentation next week but there is supposed to be between 20 to 30 new Pokémon that can be traded and exclusive to the platform and Pokémon that can’t be obtained in it. Among the new Pokémon are supposed to be new Alolan forms and some evolutions to Pokémon previously seen. (I’m hoping for a male Salazzle.)

    • I want one more Ribombee evo

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        atleast its a evolution

      • DTheConqueror

        Ribombee is Gen VIIs Klefki

        • The Singular Kuppo

          I thouhgt it was Comfey

          • DTheConqueror

            all of them can be klefki, unreasonably broken, throw in mimikyu while we’re at it.

    • Ithsme

      Yeah I agree, there’s no way stars will be under the switchmas tree.

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        I think by now im the not hyped im just crazy for switchmas

        • Ithsme

          I spent all day yesterday and half of day watching prediction videos on YouTube.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            i spent the last 3 months watching videos, u should use the reddit it has alot of rumors and stuff

          • Ithsme

            I’ve been checking the Reddit occasionally as well. Even if none of the rumors are true, it’s still good to keep us busy. xD

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            its amazing how crazy we are getting

          • Ithsme

            hahahahahAHAHAHAHAHAHA

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            HAHAHAHAHAHA ITHSME WE ARE GONNA HAVE A FIELD DAY JAN 13TH WHEN WE DISCUSS

          • Ithsme

            AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH THE HYPE

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            We have to dicuss on the dreaded discord or make a chatango just for it lol

          • Ithsme

            Yeah, either one’s fine. I still have discord on my phone, so I don’t mind using that. But if we use chatango then more people could join in.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            Ill make a switch chatango for the event so we dont flood the comments with “OH MY GOD”

          • Ithsme

            Sounds like a good plan! Can’t wait!

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            Im so hyped

          • DTheConqueror

            Is this the Pokémon community nowadays, wait for one thing to come out and jump on the next hype train once it’s released.

          • Ithsme

            That’s sorta always been me, at least. I’m still enjoying and playing SM, I haven’t just given it up, but a new console release is a huge deal.

          • MelloMori

            I would say more gaming in general is like that the just pokemon. Hype things up, love it for a week, the complain that it wasn’t perfect and demand you get the next best thing soon or else.

          • Ithsme

            The hype is part of the fun though, I wouldn’t say that it’s an issue (unless it’s like NMS, where the hype sorta killed the reception).

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            NMS killed me

          • Ithsme

            I didn’t even pick it up at all (mainly because I didn’t even know about all of the hype at that point).

          • MelloMori

            Hype can be dangerous though given too much of it kills all expectations. Really imagine if in ten days if only half to the rumors turn out to be true. That pokemon stars isn’t real, or mother three isn’t coming, or heck the extreme being that the switch isn’t going to be the new handheld as well as a console and Nintendo actually meant what they said when its a homesonsole first. How many people do you think their would be saying Nintendo’s doomed now, I’m not buying this worthless brick, screw Nintendo and the like.

          • Ithsme

            You can’t blame hype though for the bad decisions Nintendo makes.

          • MelloMori

            But you can blame people shouting into a vacuum on what they feel are the right choices for the company to make having no idea what’s actually going on behind the scenes and then acting like spoiled children that they didn’t get something that was never promised in the first place. Its why I say don’t act like something’s real until its proven real. Because if you get upset that something turns out to be a false rumor, you can’t get mad at anyone but yourself for believing it, but of course people will point their hatred at Nintendo.

          • Ithsme

            That’s very true, but hype isn’t the same as thinking you know what’s best for the company. If they make the decisions you said earlier, people likely would have been just as mad if the rumors hadn’t existed at all.

          • MelloMori

            But at the same time you can’t deny that Hype and this mindset do walk close to one another. Also while people would complain no matter what, a lot more people will complain because of the hype putting this idea in their head. Like you can’t really be disappointed if you expect nothing, but the moment you expect everything is the moment you set yourself up for disappointment, if that makes any sense. Like no matter what people will be disappointed with the switch in ten days. The Hype is too high at this point for it not to fall a bit. By how much simply amounts to what Nintendo does and who you ask.

          • Ithsme

            I get where you’re coming from now. Not all are like that, but I’m sure that you’re right for a part of the fans. All I know for sure is that Nintendo really needs to pull through with this event, this will make all the difference.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            I never act like that lol.

          • MelloMori

            I’m not saying you personally are, but I think we both know that their are people on the internet or real life who would proclaim that Nintendo’s doomed the moment they do anything different then what they think is the right choice.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            yea i agree, but i have really high hopes for this system, u can tell obviously but i do think the cons at times too!

          • MelloMori

            And I really hope that this system does well, but I really don’t know what Nintendo has planned for it which is why I’m concerned. This thing could be great, or it could be a massive failure as well. At the very least though I do feel like some portion of Nintendo’s market will not respond well to the switch and that might hurt it more then we would like to think.

      • The Singular Kuppo

        I think that a Pokemon spin-off could appear tho

        • Ithsme

          If we get a spin off I want something completely fresh, not another rumble or PMD or something.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

  • Ithsme

    Ok, so usually in a Nintendo direct style presentation, Nintendo always has a “One last surprise” announcement at the end. What do you think that announcement will be on Switchmas?

    • Pokemon or Mother or Metroid

      • DTheConqueror

        Early release date + Mother 3 and Pokémon Stars Bundle!

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Switch being delayed, that would quite be the surprise

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      Smash Bros Trailer lol jk why would that happen, its totally gonna be something saved for e3

    • Ithsme

      Hope: Monolith Soft’s project
      Prediction: Retro’s project

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        Im gonna go really really .1% and say the big surprise will be switch F-Zero

        • Ithsme

          Or metroid. People would go nuts for that, it’d be a great way to end.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            A trrue Metroid prime sequel OH

  • Paper Mario needed a little segment on the train where some if those robber enemies from the desert try to hijack the train or something

  • Mr. M

    Following evolutions please:
    – Komala (Normal/Psychic evolution)
    – Pyukumuku (Water/Fight (evolution)
    – Togedemaru (Steel/Electric evolution)
    – Bruxish (Water/Psychic evolution)
    – Drampa (Fairy Dragon evolution)
    – Dhelmise (Ghost/Steel evolution)
    – Mimikyu (Ghost/Fairy evolution)
    – Tortunator (Fire/Dragon evolution)
    – Salandit male evolution (Poison/Ghost evolution)

    • SpectralSeraph

      I like all of these except for Drampa and Dhelmise
      Especially Male Salan

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      Drampa fairy dragon? you know pokemon never get rid of the their primary type

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        wait nvm i forgot Azurill was a normal typee

        • EarthenWarrior

          Those are the few exceptions but the formula is iron clad

  • Golden_Monferno

    Because of their usual trend of surprising us with each next game, what if “Stars” is a prequel game set hundreds of years back? It’s a very unlikely theory, but it would be interesting to see

    • DTheConqueror

      We could not even have pokeballs!

      • SpectralSeraph

        Imagine having a Porygon

        • DTheConqueror

          Porygon won’t be invented for another couple Hundred years!

          • SpectralSeraph

            Exactly, so if you traded one over…

          • DTheConqueror

            Have Pokemon invented time travel?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Dialga?

          • DTheConqueror

            #SinnohRemakesConfirmed?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Nah breh

          • The Singular Kuppo

            Unova have one

          • Golden_Monferno

            Would probably cause a space-time distortion in the timeline

    • I HAD THIS IDEA OF LIKE POKEMON ZERO AND IT COULD BE Z AND IT WOULD HAVE TRIALS INSTEAD OF GYMS. LIKE I HAD THIS IDEA AFTER X AND Y AND EVERYONE WAS LIKE “OH BUT THERE WOULD BE NO GYMS”

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Pokeballs dont exist in that time so we catch the pokemon with our own hands

      • Golden_Monferno

        Imagine trying to literally catch a Steelix

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        Pokemon cant catch these hands

  • SpectralSeraph

    Weaviles apparently eat Vulpixes and Sandshrews…

    • DTheConqueror

      #OnlyInAlola

      • SpectralSeraph

        It’s like Australia, everything is beautiful but can gloriously murder you….. wait a second… Komala

        • The Singular Kuppo

          Araquanid, strangely enough is the same size as most australian spiders

          • SpectralSeraph

            Except I’m a good percent sure it is taller

          • DTheConqueror

            Pokémon Stars in Australia based region near to Alola, and in post game, you go to Alola?

          • SpectralSeraph

            perhapz

          • The Singular Kuppo

            Just a tiny bit

          • SpectralSeraph

            Really? Huh

          • The Singular Kuppo

            No, i was just messing around 😛

          • SpectralSeraph

            I wish

    • Golden_Monferno

      So that’s why there isn’t any Sandshrews in Sun XD

      • SpectralSeraph

        Yep XD

        • Golden_Monferno

          I suppose it’s one way to get rid of the Alolan forms population

          • SpectralSeraph

            Pretty much

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ughhhhhh note to viewers
    Regularly turn on and update your consoles at your earliest convenience

    Xbox 1 forgotten my Password and the change password thing isn’t working, I better not have lost all my Fallout 4 data

    • Ithsme

      That’d suck so much. I lost 600 hours on Xenoblade X, so I feel your pain.

      • EarthenWarrior

        this is why i prefer nintendo’s approach to data management
        you turn the game on, the data is stored on the memory card bing bang boom your in

        but xboner theirs all the profiles the xbox live, cloud storage, downloading and installing the game crapola

  • Cody

    At least 10 of them better be new evolutions of previous gen Pokes (7 included). And also at least 10 new Megas!!!

  • SpectralSeraph

    I’M STILL BANNED YAY

    • Ithsme

      YYYYAAAAAAYYYY

      • DTheConqueror

        YYYAAAYYYY

        • Golden_Monferno

          HUZZAH

        • SpectralSeraph

          YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYAYAYAYAYAYAYA!

      • SpectralSeraph

        Can nintendo please fix this gts shit?! I GOT DC’D IN A LOCAL TRADE

      • The Singular Kuppo

        YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HA!!

  • DTheConqueror

    So, will this be Gen VII.V

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      i mean they wont considered it that it will just be gen 7 still

    • Green

      It’ll be like Pokemon Crystal, Emerald or Platinum, which are still their gens. Another comparison is B2/W2. You can’t trade certain Pokemon back to B/W (Black and White Kyurem), but it’s still part of gen 5.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Cant wait for gen 7.8 and gen ReCoded

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Im thinking evolutions of some of the gen 7 pokes would be in order. Komala, ribombee, pyukumuku, minior, and maybe some new megas.

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      what are megas?

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        Are you asking which ones I think will happen?

        • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

          ohhh u mean that feature gamefreak gave the short end of the stick this gen

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            yeah… surprised you forgot… or maybe you were being funny
            lol

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            i scrolled down to see you already used that joke lol

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            im gonna keep using it lol

    • EarthenWarrior

      none of those pokes need evolutions (their gimmicks are plenty enough)
      but *begrudgingly* Ribombee doesn’t have an asinine gimmick that doesn’t restrict a mega

    • SpectralSeraph

      Kinda wish Komala had one

      • Ithsme

        :'(

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ok my xbox 1 stuff is sorted out and now while i finish up in wow i can listen to my favorite track in all of Shovel Knight

  • Golden_Monferno

    This is like how Kurusu did their gym leaders, but does anyone want to be a part of the Elite Four for my region? If you do, just give the name of the character, the type specialist, and what type of room you want it to be like for the Elite Four member.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Me! As a ghosty ofcourse

      • Golden_Monferno

        Alright then, with the type out of the way, what name do you want for the character and what would the room look like?

        • SpectralSeraph

          Seraph of course….
          I dunno actually, but shadow themed!

          • Golden_Monferno

            I’ll think about something that’s shadow themed.
            But thanks!

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yw!
            Out of curiosity, since I would be using a native team what can I expect to have?

          • Golden_Monferno

            Well I do have plans for a ghost type that’s basically a possessed pirate ship that is in the shape of a goblin shark and is about 20 feet long. As for its stats, it would be incredibly tanky in HP.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Ooh!! Sweet! What else?! 😀

          • Golden_Monferno

            Here I’ll check the list I have so far for my fakemon, so I’ll be right back

          • SpectralSeraph

            Okay!

          • Golden_Monferno

            So I looked back at my old Fakemon list, and I saw this:
            A guardian angel that is Ghost
            A Virus Pokemon that is Electric/Ghost
            And a Rock Monster that lurks around temples that is Rock/Ghost

          • SpectralSeraph

            Electric ghosty! 😀

          • EarthenWarrior

            aka Rotom

          • Golden_Monferno

            Yeah I was thinking about scrapping the idea because of the similarities to Rotom, I haven’t been the best at coming up with Ghost types

          • SpectralSeraph

            But we need an electric ghost line

          • EarthenWarrior

            Rotom took them all

          • SpectralSeraph

            I actually want a relevant one

          • SpectralSeraph

            Like Electric Ghost is only one one form

          • EarthenWarrior

            i’m saying what possible concept would a Electric/Ghost type possibly possess that doesn’t mooch on the concept

          • SpectralSeraph

            Something involving code

          • SpectralSeraph

            I dunno rn

          • Golden_Monferno

            My idea was it having the appearance of an actual virus like this:
            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2e230f1f2a9d824e16f077df43d9ca50406d3b0b8b4bb4e4892b64b5611c6b25.png
            But its legs and head are distorted and look similar to corrupted code.
            The reason why it looks like an actual virus is because its the primary form it takes when it doesn’t turn into malware and corrupts computer systems, so it took this form to represent a literal parasite of technology.

          • SpectralSeraph

            I WANT IT

          • Golden_Monferno

            Then I’ll add it to your team then

          • SpectralSeraph

            😀
            My ace perhaps? ;3

          • Golden_Monferno

            Maybe
            This Electric/Ghost will be blistering fast and a solid special attack. HP, attack, and special defense are average, but the defense is its weak point

          • Golden_Monferno

            I guess I’ll keep the line in. It was going to be a two stage evolutionary line.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Eyyy

    • MenacingCascoon

      I do! You too should combine forces though it will be too confusing to have two seperate league-like things. Maybe 4 of the original 8 become gym leaders and a tourney is held to replace the 4 gym leaders

      • MenacingCascoon

        I will do Fighting

        • Golden_Monferno

          Yeah I think it would get pretty confusing, but thanks for the suggestion!
          And as for your type, what will the name of the E4 member be?

          • MenacingCascoon

            Oh I need a name? I would keep it as username for less confusion

          • Golden_Monferno

            Ok that’s fine, and it can also be a random name too

    • The Singular Kuppo

      I also want to!!

      • The Singular Kuppo

        My type would be ghos- *sees coments behind* grass type and make the room jungle themed!

        • Golden_Monferno

          Thanks!

  • MenacingCascoon

    Kinda saddened we are already talking about a new game when Im not even done with sm. That being said, i will be mad to have an exclusive main story game only for switch. Thats almost 500 dollars for 20 new pokemon. Thats an awful deal

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      The switch isn’t gonna be 500 they already said it’s gonna be cheap and affordable

      • MenacingCascoon

        But console games are 60
        So if its 300 (the minimum) its almost 400

        • MelloMori

          That, and the cost only goes up when you factor in a pro controller, and additional add on’s, ect. Though Yeah I can’t see the switch being less then 300, and probably closer to 350 if I were a betting man.

    • Ithsme

      THATS HOW I FELT ON NOV 18TH WHEN STARS GOT RUMORED
      xD

    • Ithsme

      Also it’s not like you’re paying 500 dollars for only 20 Pokemon, you’re also getting the new features and fixes of stars. Plus the ability to play the other switch games, which will likely be great.

  • SpectralSeraph

    …299/300 Pokemon in the dex… yay

    • Jackattack72

      What are you missing? I could help maybe lol

      • SpectralSeraph

        Solgaleo….

        • Jackattack72

          I actually can’t help with that lol. I have moon, I had my fiancé trade me his and trade back. I could maybe train up a cosmoem in his game though, it would just take a while

          • SpectralSeraph

            Welp XD

          • Jackattack72

            Still in need of Solgaleo? I evolved my Cosmoem in his game and can trade you it!

          • SpectralSeraph

            :3

          • Jackattack72

            If you want. My friend code is 113471270529 and my name is Jack

          • Prince Fae

            oh my gosh thats so cute, I’m dead!!!

          • Jackattack72

            Thanks I think… I didn’t mean to kill you (sorry for late response been busy)

  • EarthenWarrior

    Holy Shit…they’re making the final final FINAL Hey Arnold movie that will resolve everything

  • Golden_Monferno

    I just swept on Random Battles on Smogon with a Dedenne. It was amazing:
    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7randombattle-510120315

    • EarthenWarrior

      bah he was stupid

    • MelloMori

      Ah yes, the one good star power in the game, enjoy it, because its the only one you’ll ever use.

    • EarthenWarrior

      mah man Skolar!
      Ohohohoho the next chapter is a fun one

      • Bow and Kooper are the best btw

        • MelloMori

          Wait until the next chapter when you get the objectively best party member in the game. She’s a cutie.

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      thousand year door better be a early on vc title on the switch, i need to play that again

      • EarthenWarrior

        i do too, my Gamecube is nothing but dust at this point she’s been with me for nearly 10 years

    • P.K. …

  • EarthenWarrior
  • Switchmas RedEastGovnah
    • EarthenWarrior

      too bad its a merciless killer

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        THATS ITS ABILITY

        • EarthenWarrior

          fun fact The Crown of Thorns Starfish the species which toxapex is based on, actually eats coral and is considered a environmental hindering species since coral reefs are endangered

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            That’s actually really fascinating lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            they’re killing coral reefs….

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            Doesn’t make it any less fascinating lol

          • SpectralSeraph

            Named mine “Death Star” for a reason

    • it reminds me of Mawile 🙂

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    just beat an entire team with a togekiss. oh my…

    • Ithsme

      Yes! Best Pokemon ever!

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        I know, a few flinches, towards the end…

        • Ithsme

          Paraflinch set?

        • Naw, Ithsme is a genuine Togekiss fan.

    • EarthenWarrior

      cheapass

      • Ithsme

        😉

        • EarthenWarrior

          feh and how many flinches

  • Edr

    it’s fake??

    • Ithsme

      No way to tell for sure

    • MelloMori

      Short answer, nobody knows at this point. Just gotta wait and see. Just know that the next 10 days will be pretty much open season for fake leaks. So take everything with a grain of salt.

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        I have a leak!
        theres a new color variant for pokemon in stars, rarer then shinies itself

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        Is there something in ten days?

        • Switch Direct

          • MelloMori

            Yup. Pretty much everything about the switch will be known in a matter of days, hence why you see a lot of us talking about it in here and trying to figure out what Nintendo has planned for it.

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            you think any pokemon news will come about?

          • MelloMori

            Hard call. I’ve been open that I don’t think Stars is real, but even if I did it would be hard to think they would announce it so soon. Seems like its more of something you would announce at E3. That said though I wouldn’t be surprised to hear something like a Pokken port with the four new characters coming to the switch, or maybe even new characters as well.

          • Ithsme

            I doubt it. Pokemon usually does their own thing, plus it seems too early to announce a better version of SM, I almost think it’d hinder sales.

  • Golden_Monferno

    Comment Question: What’s a Pokemon that you were neutral about at first, but it grew on you over time?
    Mine are Driftblim, Dedenne, Pyukumuku, and Magmortar

    • EarthenWarrior

      Scrafty, Simisage, Oranguru, Araquanid, Togedemaru

    • Alolan Persian, Oranguru, Drampa

      • EarthenWarrior

        A. Persian is slowly rising the ranks of pokemon that annoy me
        Parting Shot should’ve stayed on pangoro

    • Ithsme

      Togekiss.
      Now we’re in separable.

      • Ithsme

        *inseperable

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      Heatmor, ferrothorn, cryogonal, magmortar, golurk, barbaracle, magnezone.

    • Prince Fae

      Slurpuff, I absolutely hated it when it came out and loved the Aromatisse line, but now Swirlix and Slurpuff are my favourite pokemon of all time, and I have no clue how it happened

      • Golden_Monferno

        Funny thing was that was the same case for Drifblim, I absolutely hated it because it was basically a possessed blimp, yet I started using it more and I find it as one of my favorite ghost types

        • Prince Fae

          honestly I didn’t like it at all first either but then I was like, its kinda cute (drifloon line)

          • Golden_Monferno

            Yeah, it is kinda cute. Besides that whole dark backstory the two have XD, they are awesome

    • Ultron

      Mimikyu, Tentacruel, Aegislash, Barbaracle

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      Mimikyu, Dugtrio, and others I can’t remember

    • Gamer Dragon07

      I never would have thought I would use some of the pokemon in my team but they have proved themselves very useful for me over time
      For Black 1: Sigilyph and Jellicent.Sigilyph had Magic Guard and was a great help against Ghetsis’ Cofagrigus while Jellicent provided great coverage for my team
      For Black 2: I used Swanna and Galvantula.My Swanna was a savage against Marshall’s team,she single handedly swept and getting lucky flinches.For Galvantula,I slowly found it to be very cute
      For Alpha Sapphire: Ludicolo,I never realized on how useful this pokemon was to my team until I used him,especially since I picked Torchic as my starter
      For Moon: Drampa,Lycanroc Midnight form,Lurantis and Araquanid.Lycanroc,Lurantis and Araquanid lasted me for most of the game,they provided my good coverage but has since been replaced with Kommo-o,Drampa and Alolan Ninetales….even though it gave me a severe weakness in dealing with rock types.Drampa was a last minute entry into my party because I really needed a bulky pokemon and he was capable of learning surf and energy ball to provide coverage

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    Can you get island scanners before post game??

    • MelloMori

      Yeah. Technically you can as soon as you get the pokedex. Unless island scanners are different from island scans.

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Good cause it’s a bitch getting Spheal

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          I got it named it Blubby

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Also, happy new year all (again… I’m pretty sure I already said this on the last post)! Last year was so fun with you all!

    • Golden_Monferno

      Happy new year to you too!

    • Ithsme

      2 days in and my year sucks so far.

      But happy new year to you!

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        Oh no! Hope things can turn around!

        • Ithsme

          It’s not that bad I guess, mainly school stress (even though I don’t even go back until tomorrow, I’ve been receiving bad news about it), but I know it will. Thanks! 🙂

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    If you could redo the typing of any one pokemon (not adding or taking away the amount of types they already have), what would it be?

    • I would remove Fairy from Azumarill. Probably replace it with Normal.

      Note of course that Azu is my favorite Pokemon of all time.

    • Golden_Monferno

      I would have to change Palkia’s typing. Out of every single Pokemon, Palkia having the water type didn’t make any sense, besides the fact that pearls come from the sea. I would change its type to Psychic/Dragon, to better fit the whole spatial theme

      • I would think the only excuse for that is Palkia not explicitly stated to be an extraterrestial.

        • Golden_Monferno

          Yeah true

      • EarthenWarrior

        we you understand that pearls are found in the water
        and water offers the same effects of a low gravity environment
        and fun fact astronauts go in water simulations to practice space fare

        so its not out of the ordinary

        • Golden_Monferno

          Oh that makes a lot more sense, wasn’t really thinking about that

          • EarthenWarrior

            i know you weren’t

      • Ultron

        Water/Dragon is a way better typing though.

        • EarthenWarrior

          pain in the ass typing

          • Ultron

            Literally

    • Ithsme

      Reshiram and Zekrom to Normal/Dragon and Dark/Dragon because idk why not

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        See, I’d get rid of the normal typing on toucannon and replace it with dark. I was so bummed we went back to having normal/flying regional birds.

        • Ithsme

          That’s clever, I hadn’t thought of that. Yeah, Talonflame really gave people a distaste for the typical normal bird.

          • Rockcrawdaunt

            Id seen someone say it should be dark because of the anger protruding from its expression. and the black coloring to boot.

          • Ithsme

            Plus the theiving tendencies goes along with the cheating strategy of dark types.

        • EarthenWarrior

          What possible reason would toucannon have anything to do with the dark typing
          Should be a Fire/Flying

    • Ultron

      Staraptor to Fighting/Flying

    • MelloMori

      Probably a weird choice, but Making Electivre electric/fighting. Kinda fits better with it learning some good fighting moves and punches, as well as it more or less being a living taser.

  • Ithsme

    Add on question: any Pokemon that you loved at first but grew to hate?

    • Prince Fae

      Charazard

      • Golden_Monferno

        Same, after Mega Charizard X became very overrated I began to hate it

        • Prince Fae

          mega charizard X? I was under the impression that mega never really saw the light of day, it was always Y that I found overrated and used way too much. But then again Charizard in general has been overrated since gen 1

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            nah, DD charizard X was the main one used atleast for me. Y was good but that weakness to SR you could barely switch in and out

          • Prince Fae

            I literally only saw X used once and killed it in like .2, but Y I saw every second battle, but I play doubles so maybe one was more used in singles and the other in doubles?

          • MelloMori

            Pretty much. hazards aren’t common in Doubles since you really don’t switch out a lot during it, and its very easy to lose your pokemon if they double up into you. Y kinda dominated for awhile given its free sun setup and that it paired well with a lot of pokemon because of it.

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            yeah! i dont do doubles is too much

          • That is true, X is more popular in singles, Y is the only one ever used in doubles.

          • Golden_Monferno

            Really? It was always the opposite for me lol. But yeah Charizard has always been very overrated.

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      Gliscor. ugh i hate battling a gliscor

    • As a competitor I tend to like mons by competitive viability. Since there’s rarely anything that becomes outright trash in later gens, I don’t actively gain dislikes thanks to Game Freak not nerfing any specific mons in general.

      • SpectralSeraph

        Gengar, Talonflame

        • Gengar not floating is actually surprisingly good with today’s prevalence of terrains. And Ground attacks are surprisingly limited in VGC…

          Also I never liked Talonflame so it’s like it went from meh to “even more meh”.

    • EarthenWarrior

      everything

      • Ithsme

        Even Rhyperior?

        • EarthenWarrior

          no, but i am annoyed when others use it

    • Golden_Monferno

      Darkrai, it gets very old after people spam it in Ubers all the time

    • Ultron

      Malamar, Liepard, Absol

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      Emolga and Miltank we all know why

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        And kind of pyukumuku competitively because it sucks

  • Switchmas RedEastGovnah
    • thegreatcarbinkle

      12/10 quality content

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        Most develope character

    • Prima-Azuril

      They must make a side-game where we play as Hala going on an adventure to the laguna.

  • MelloMori

    So honest question about the switch. Its more or less been confirmed that the Switch will have only about 32 gb’s of storage on the device. Do you personally see this as an issue for yourselves? To give a bit of a sense of data size for those who aren’t that familiar, Splatoon was just shy of about 2 gb’s, something like witcher 3 was about 22 gb, and something like gta 5 is roughly around 60 gb.

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      Since it uses cartridges instead of disc is there less room used?

      • MelloMori

        Yes and no? Generally cartridges are known for usually faster load times, but at a cost of size since their not cheap to produce. The exact sizes of game cards isn’t known, but its about 16 gb at launch. So in a sense you could think of it as being able to own two or less games digitally, if you buy games digitally.

        • Today’s carts can definitely hold a lot of info now. I’d look at the Vita and its PS3-quality games in carts.

          • MelloMori

            Yeah theirs no knocking quality, simply a concern of space at an affordable level. That, and it does seem a bit odd that Nintendo wouldn’t be designing a console that can handle a digital market like its competition easily can. I mean I can’t imagine people would complain that much if say the switch had something like say a 250 gb SSD built into it, but Who knows really. I’m still a bit of a greenhorn with specs and why it might be more favorable for Nintendo to take the switch in the direction it did.

          • Nintendo are probably just being cheap, as usual. Just like the Wii U being 8-64gb but “just expand it with an SD card yourself”.

            PS 4 has to have 500 GB+ because there’s no way to add storage to it.

          • MelloMori

            Good point. I suppose now we’ll just have to see if their is a way to increase its storage size or not. If the latter though, do you find it a possible issue? I mean its probably safe to say that we won’t see cases of dev’s offloading data, for lack of a better word, which has kinda become common practice these days with it, but it would limit the digital market a fair bit. Heck given we don’t know the full range of how big cartridges can be for the thing, I’m curious to see if that could also limit which games could even come to the console. I mean in general we know that skyrim is coming which is normally around 20 gb of data, though their are a few ways to drop that number, and its possible that they did for this version.

    • If SD cards will be supported, it won’t be an issue for long. Even less if it supports external hard drives like with the Wii U.

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    I need to ask a question for regional bug

    A tick or
    a cockroach

    • EarthenWarrior

      hmmmmmm how about a Silverfish

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Maybe

    • I think we should go with cockroach, since we already have a tick.

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        We do?

        • Joltik

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            I thought it was a spider?

          • Well it’s a “tik” that evolves into a spider… but yeah.

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Well cockroach it is yet with Earthens idea I think silverfish that evolves to Cockroach

    • Golden_Monferno

      I’d do a cockroach

  • SpectralSeraph

    Question, since everyone else is asking I might as well too..
    In my game I will have seven trainers in a certain area, and six slots are available …
    Anyone want a slot to be in? Pick your name and type

    • SpectralSeraph

      GHost is off limits though

    • Golden_Monferno

      I’ll be in one slot!
      Name: Eli
      Type: Fire

      • SpectralSeraph

        Sweet! Anything about your team I should know? Attacking style, dual types you may like, anything you can think of

        • Golden_Monferno

          Basically it would be a sweeper like team, with one or two bulky fire types there. It would be somewhat difficult to face.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Okay, good to know
            Any dual types you may want?

          • Golden_Monferno

            As for a new Pokemon:
            Maybe a Grass/Fire type and a fire/fighting
            For old ones:
            Mostly pure fire, but also a Fire/Ghost

          • SpectralSeraph

            Ooh! I got all three of those

          • SpectralSeraph

            Only thing is that most mons are new

          • Golden_Monferno

            Oh ok, well in that case if there is one old mon, then it can be pure fire (like a Torkoal with Drought so it can in harsh sunlight for the team)

          • SpectralSeraph

            I mean like I literally only included a select few old mons XD
            Your team may end up entirely new, but the type combos WILL be there

          • Golden_Monferno

            Yeah you can do whatever you want, I forgot that you did have select mons so my bad on that part

          • SpectralSeraph

            XD it’s okay!
            By the way, any type you’d want your ace to be?

          • Golden_Monferno

            I guess the fast Fire/Grass one

          • SpectralSeraph

            Cool! 😀
            Oh by the way, it’s a legend :3

          • Golden_Monferno

            Well I suppose it will give more of a challenge to the player XD

          • SpectralSeraph

            😀

    • Ultron

      Mordecai, Dark type

      • SpectralSeraph

        Ooh! Fun! Anything else you would like to let me know about?

        • Ultron

          I’m super hot and use all dual types

          • SpectralSeraph

            Of course XD

          • Ultron

            I also have a cape w/ hood. My getup is sort of like a sorcerer, but I’m not evil

          • Serenotic

            Suuuuure.

          • Ultron

            I’m not against fighting dirty though, don’t forget it.

          • Serenotic

            Same here, my good man

          • Ultron

            Also Dark/electric pokemon would be lit

          • SpectralSeraph

            I have one in the works, want it as your ace?

          • Ultron

            Yes sir

          • SpectralSeraph

            Awesome! I’ll let you know what it is when it is made

          • Ultron

            Cool cool

          • SpectralSeraph

            😀
            It’s gonna be an attacker btw

          • Ultron

            That’s fine with me!

          • SpectralSeraph

            😀

    • TheNintendoChip

      Just curious, what’s it for, and is this going to be an actual game or just a concept?

      • SpectralSeraph

        I WANT to make it a game, but I am seriously doubting it will happen

        • TheNintendoChip

          If you do, I would suggest downloading RPG Maker XP and Pokemon Essentials. You could do a ROM hack, but I find them to be far more limiting (and the tilesets are super hard to import). RPG Maker XP comes with a trial mode, but when it runs out you can just change the time on your computer for infinite use 🙂

          • SpectralSeraph

            True! I’d give it a shot!

          • Golden_Monferno

            Hey maybe I can do this too, I’ll try it out sometime soon after I plan out everything!

    • Serenotic

      Both of my favorite types are already taken 🙁

      • Ultron

        Be a bug trainer

        • Serenotic

          Ewww. No lol

          • Ultron

            What’s wrong with bugs?! There are some cool bug types. Respect the bug yo

          • Serenotic

            I’m like Misty when it comes to bugs. I only like a few lol

      • SpectralSeraph

        🙁
        Any others you’d like?

        • Serenotic

          Can I be a trainer with tri-types? Lol Dark/ghost/Psychic?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Hmmmm XD I dunno…but psychic isn’t taken!

        • Serenotic

          Actually, I’ll be a psychic, but can I have a Sableye who doesn’t battle? Lol

          • SpectralSeraph

            Sure! Shoulder Sableye it is!

          • Serenotic

            Yeeeeees!

    • oh hai
      Ava or Star either is fine
      Type: Fairy

      • SpectralSeraph

        Okai!

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Oh hai Mark
      Yo can call me Kuppo
      And my type Will be gho- *reads comment behind* grass typ!

  • Golden_Monferno

    I just came up with a good idea for a Fakemon:

    The Beat Pokemon
    Type: Electric/Fighting
    Ability: Constant Tempo (After hit by an attack, its speed gets boosted)/Static
    Height: 4′ 11″
    Weight: 96 lbs
    *Would be based on an ape and the concept of a boom box incorporated into its design.
    Dex Entry: As if it were drums, this Pokemon beats its chest in order to store electricity. When it beats, a burst of sound waves are emanated, so it can beat its chest different ways to create different sounds. This makes them pretty popular at concerts. Constantly moving also helps keeping the electric flow from stopping.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Monkey Lucio!?
      Nah JK XD, I like it!

      • Golden_Monferno

        Haha thanks, I was just brainstorming about a new electric type I can put in my region, and this came into mind.
        Also, when the game is made, you can name the mon Lucio if you want XD

        • SpectralSeraph

          XD yay
          (I actually am not an Overwatch fan, just needed the joke)

      • Ithsme

        Lol my friend named his Passimian “Lucio” for whatever reason.

        • SpectralSeraph

          XD hmm

  • Y’all lied to me. Shy Guy’s Toy Box was the worst D:

    • Ithsme

      ??

      • Playing Paper Mario

        • Ithsme

          Ah, ok.

    • MelloMori

      We weren’t lying, we were being sarcastic. Its one of the worst chapters in the series, though the party member you get is objectively the best party member in the game without question. She has piercing damage which makes her a godsend.

      • Oh .-. Yeah it was awful. The music was not that great and having to go back and forth from toad town to the toy box was terrible.

        Watt is nice though. I swear though everytime I defeat a boss I’m always right about to level up. I beat this one and I’m at 97 star points

        • MelloMori

          Yeah, the next chapter’s a bit better if I remember right. It has Yoshi’s if that helps.

          And yeah Watt’s kind of adorable to me. Though she’s not my favorite in the series. That forever go’s to Vivian in TTYD and its mostly for reasons that Nintendo never probably intended.

          • Prince Fae

            Vivian is the best mario character in general imo

          • She has a neat design I need to play TTYD next

          • Prince Fae

            She has a great personality and is also transgender (just a neat little fact) so like I love her https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/90935dbae575475609c55bb900cbb550e2f686d9435ecfda8f97626ea0be7cb7.png

          • Prince Fae

            OH MY GOD!!! She looks like what would happen if Tapu Lele and Tapu Fini had a kid!!!!!

          • Prince Fae

            with a mismagius

          • less Tapu Fini and more Mismagius

          • Your telling me a Nintendo game in 2004 had a trans character omg I already love her. Oh I guess Birdo was sorta trans but they kinda retconned that which sucks?

          • Prince Fae

            Yes! It is canon that she is transgender, they only removed it in a few countries because the localization teams didn’t agree with it. But she is 100% Trans, no retcon was done

          • If we could get more of that in modern gaming I would be so happy. Yeah really hope the Switch has TTYD on Virtual Console or a remake or something because I really wanna play it. I’m really loving the N64 Paper Mario

          • Prince Fae

            Have you ever played Dragon Age: Inquisition? it is my favourite game ever, its on PS3 and PS4 and made by bioware, a canadian company. It has a similar feel to skyrim and other open world RPGs but in this game every story element is extremely rich and you have several same sex and opposite sex romances that you can pursue and omg the feels!!! But my point of it all was that there is this really strong and cool character named Krem and he is openly trans, and a bad ass warrior. You can even talk to him about it.

          • Yeah I’ve heard that game had alot of great LGBT representation. I should check it out! Bioware makes pretty great stuff anyways so wow

          • MelloMori

            Well that’s kinda the case, but not really. It wasn’t so much that she was cannon trans and it was removed, as much as it was a happy accident. In the Japanese version there’s a scene where her sisters insult her and more or less said that she looks manish. Most localization teams realized that meant that she’s being insulted. that their saying shes ugly. One team, I think the Italian localization team, mistranslated that as her being a man and thus it became a debated cannon if she was a woman or if she was a transwoman.

            However once people looked at the trans angle, the game has a bit of an interesting tone. Her sisters always call her a sister or a woman, implying that they have no trouble with being trans. People refer to her as female meaning that either can’t tell or their being polite. She openly expresses feelings to Mario, which could also make her one of the first gay characters depending on who you ask when it comes to sexual preference and trans, and her kinda putting aside her feelings for Mario at the end of the game so he can live a happy life with Peach could be because she realizes that Mario might not realize that she is trans and might not be attracted to that.

            But yeah, her being Trans is more or less accepted as cannon, though I don’t think their’s ever been an official statement on it. More just a happy accident that people kinda liked.

          • Prince Fae

            … theres a lot about this that bothers me but I won’t say anything about it (its not even about Vivian being trans but other things) but I mean, I really don’t think it was an accident there are several moments in the games that kind of confirm it, sure nintendo themselves won’t say anything about it because they know how crazy people in other countries are and that they feel threatened by anything remotely out of the norm. But yeah pretty sure it was intentional, way more so than birdo, and everywhere I have looked has accepted it as canon and back it up with evidence and such.

          • MelloMori

            At the same time though its very easy to read into things where none were intended. And I’m not saying the interpretation is wrong or anything. I like to think she is as well. I just meant that its more or less up for interpretation in the Japanese version and wasn’t made 100% clear. Only a couple of languages did outright say it, and most didn’t either not realizing what might have been intended or any other reason.

            I just personally see it as something Like a Kanji from persona 4 situation where things are kinda vague, despite having a clear answer in the Japanese version, and in leaving it vague fans have kinda come up with their own interpretation, though its not nearly as agreed on as Vivian being trans. But again perhaps its better we just leave it aside. No matter the reason we both agree that the character’s great for many reasons.

  • Ok so in a bit I’m goona start a Platinum nuzlocke because I wanna finally finish a Nuzlocke and I love Gen 4
    Who should my starter be and what should their nickname be?

    https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/f6/e2/3b/f6e23b58846429a63b3f52305cf421e6.jpg

    • Piplup, Happy Feet

    • I need more replies or I may just do the Trainer ID thing D:

      • What’s that? 🙂

        • You choose the starter based on the last digit in your trainer ID so like…. If the last digit is 1-3, the grass starter is chosen, 4-6 the fire starter is chosen, 7-9, the water starter is chosen

          • Well, sounds good…but if it’s zero? Or is the trainer ID never ending in zero…

          • 0 then you choose

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      Chimchar

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      9 days left till we know

      • nooo I can’t wait that long

        • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

          We made it this far my friend a few days won’t stop us

    • MelloMori

      I’d say it’ll happen when pigs fly, but given they do in that game I can’t really use it. In that case I do kinda hope it comes out, if only because it’ll ruin Laura Kate Dales credibility for years if its wrong, and she’s already on thin ice with a lot of people.

  • SpectralSeraph

    I plan to give 10 Pokemon a “Sort of” alolan form for my region… one I’m doing is Victini and I plan on making it Electric/???
    I don’t quite know what to make the ???

    • Psychic, I guess? Since the original was.

      • SpectralSeraph

        That’s what I’m thinking..

    • Electric/Fire would be cool

      • SpectralSeraph

        I thought about that, but I know fire is the type I’m removing from it for Electric

        • Oh…
          How about Electric/Fighting?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Maybe…
            I’m thinking Electric/Flying or Electric/Fairy

          • Ultron

            Electric fairy

          • SpectralSeraph

            I actually ended up deciding on Electric/Flying XD, but thanks for the imput!

  • Ok so I decided to go with Turtwig because i’ve never used it before so why not

    • What should I name leaf turtle

      • MelloMori

        Maybe after some island turtle in mythology?

        • ok ill name it big ass turtle

          • MelloMori

            Sounds about right XP.

      • Ultron

        Lion turtle

  • SpectralSeraph

    I made some Regional form typings and DANG I think I may have come up with some good ones

    • Ghost/Fairy Mismagius thx fam

      • Ultron

        Such a good typing

        • SpectralSeraph

          Well… I still have two more in the works and once they’re done I’ll say em :3

  • SpectralSeraph

    My regional forms :3

    Bronzong (Water/Psychic)
    Shiftry (Steel/Flying)
    Yanmega (Bug/Dragon)
    Lurantis (Bug/Fairy)
    Goodra (Fire/Ground)
    Mienshao (Ice/FIghting)
    Eelektross (Electric/Water)
    Accelgor (Dark/Grass)
    Escavalier (Rock/Poison)
    Cacturne (Ground/Ghost
    Victini (Electric/Flying)

    • SpectralSeraph

      Imput would be appreciated! 😀

      • SpectralSeraph

        If anyone is here…

    • SpectralSeraph

      If you want to know the origins for any, lemme know

      • MelloMori

        I would like to know the logic behind these choices. Like some make sense like an eel being water, but some of them seem a bit extreme.

        • SpectralSeraph

          Well some are sort of extreme, and I’m still thinking of explanations for a FEW
          A few easier ones to explain are Accegor who is mainly adapting to become more ninja like in a grassy environment. It tends to use the nature around it to perform its tactics. For example, it can create a pseudo-smoke bomb out of just natural material. Bronzong is also easy in the fact that several dex entries for it mention it being, almost a rainbringer and I decided to build on that
          Shiftry is flat out a strange exception because it is NOT natural. Shiftry was altered in general. Y’know that theory of Genesect being a Kabutops? I essentially applied a similar logic toward what regional Shiftry is.

          • MelloMori

            Ah interesting with Shiftry, though I would probably make its previous forms Steel though to kinda keep with the theme. Like saying it was an experiment years ago, but eventually some of them escaped into the wind and bred like bunnies to the point that their just common now or something.

            Also with Accegor its a good explanation, though I personally would have probably let it keep a bug typing and then given it one of the other two. Like if dark saying that its become a bit of a dirty fighter and aims at sneak attacks, or using grass for the explanation you used. But good work so far.

            Some other easy ones could be Goodra changing itself in order to protect Goomy, given how weak they are, and maybe cacturn being a victim of living in a land with so little water that it body petrified turning it into its current form?

          • SpectralSeraph

            Thats what I did for Shiftry’s line, but I’m deciding still if Nuzleaf should get flying
            Accelgor is partially didn’t want another form and that I felt Grass/Dark would be a good fit

            Goodra I decided would be like this, they ended up moving toward a volcanic area due to overpopulation of a certain other pokemon and began to take a rather muddy form. Being close to a volcanic area in my region, they began to adapt to the heat and.. well

            I like that one for cacturne, but I’ll think on it

            Mienshao is that classic “Trained in the mountains” story but it became Ice due to a combination of adaptation over many years and as a way to keep up with/hunt prey

          • SpectralSeraph

            So yeah

      • Golden_Monferno

        I am curious about Victini and Accelgor

        • SpectralSeraph

          Accelgor I explained below
          Victini is due to the fact that it managed to fill itself with so much energy (Y’know, Victory energy) that it morphed into an electric type. Its flying part came from more adapted wings for flying at high speeds

          • Golden_Monferno

            Accelgor’s change makes a lot of sense, and Victini’s is something that works very well with its backstory

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yep! 😀 thanks!
            Any others that peak your interest?

          • Golden_Monferno

            Goodra and Excavalier’s typings are very different than what I was expecting, I’d like to hear their backstories too

          • SpectralSeraph

            Escavalier is the one I’m still thinking of an explanation for, but poison was inspired by Beedrill. Also it has levitate cause the dex states that it FLIES for some reason.

            Goodra is mentioned below

  • SpectralSeraph

    …Battle tree.. Grimsley just 3-0’d me…

    • As long he’s not using his Dark team, that one is kinda hard…

      • SpectralSeraph

        He pulled out a Mega Tyranitar turn one….

        • SpectralSeraph

          I never saw what else he had

          • Oh, I checked Serebii and it’s all dark, and you just got the worst mega possible out of four. 😐

          • SpectralSeraph

            (Cri)

    • This new year, I almost got 50 wins and just barely lost to Blue. 🙂

      His Pidgeot lived with like a pixel before Marowak died…

      • SpectralSeraph

        Oh god

  • Golden_Monferno

    I got some a few new regional variants (there will be about ten more later, but these are the ones I have so far):
    Starmie: Water/Ground
    Gengar: Fire/Dark
    Dragonair: Ice/Dragon
    Dragonite: Ice/Dragon

  • SpectralSeraph

    Some sample abilities that will be included

    Blood Guzzler: The Pokemon restores its own health upon using a contact move on its opponent. This effect decreases the lower its opponent’s health is. (Heals entirely at full and 10% at 1% health)
    Example of a pokemon with this ability: Wompire

    Overcharger: The user can use two turn moves in a single turn and does not to recharge. Instead, it takes 20% recoil damage.
    Example of a pokemon with this ability: Drag00n, Porygon-Z

    Rampage: The more a move is used in a row, the more damage it does. Upon hitting its damage cap it will confuse the user. If the user switches moves, this effect resets. (Increases in .5 intervals up to 2.5x)
    Example of a pokemon with this ability: Primeape, Tauros

    • SpectralSeraph

      I think these would work

      • I think Overcharger should do 30% recoil instead to be standard with Flare Blitz and others…

        • SpectralSeraph

          Hmmmm, I see your point… but at the same time people using Hyper Beam will more often die themselves than do anything spectacular… I’m probably raise it to 30 regardless though

      • Next question is if Rampage will stack with Rage, Rollout, Ice Ball, and Fury Cutter… and also if it works with multi-turn multi-attack moves like Outrage, Thrash, Uproar and Petal Blizzard (or is it Petal Dance).

        • SpectralSeraph

          Not the former, and the latter I am deciding on

          I don’t think so

  • SpectralSeraph

    OKAY WHY DOES ANABEL HAVE A LATIOS ON BATTLE TEN!?
    …And it got bodied by an ingame Araquanid… .way to go Anabel

    • Right now, I actually see no way Latios could win 1v1 against Araquanid, though… (unless it’s Choice Specs Draco Meteor)

      • SpectralSeraph

        Except I had an electric terrain up and it could have T-bolted… .good to know Araquanid is godly though xD

        • Latios floats, so it couldn’t take advantage of that. :p

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh yeah! I forgot!

          Name: Alex
          Type: (depending on what’s taken) water, dark, steel, fairy, or normal

          • SpectralSeraph

            Sweet! Water is yours!

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Yes My favorite type is mine

  • zess

    Any new pokemon would be appreciated its a shame that it’s only 20 I just feel that such a low amount should have been included in sun&moon. If this rumor is true I hope they give a good reason for 20 pokemon just coming out of nowhere. Bet they’ll say these pokemon are really rare that while they’re seldom seen or found. More 1% pokemon anyone😈?

    • SpectralSeraph

      Or megas… or alolans

      • zess

        I forgot they counted Mega’s as there own pokemon. also does anyone think they might recon mega’s to be a semi permanent thing I mean if the walking animations are for follower pokemon why give the to mega’s if they’re a thing that only exist within battles? At any rate I can’t wait for Stars!

  • Prima-Azuril

    Is anyone alive?

  • SpectralSeraph

    WHY IS VIKAVOLT SO BULKY!?

  • Prima-Azuril

    I just caught a wild 3 Max IVed Bagon….wow.

  • SpectralSeraph

    Welp, can confirm Bulky Vikavolt and Banded Lurantis have some use

  • SpectralSeraph

    Now that I’m testing, is there any new mons anyone would like to know how to use competitively?

    • Chaos

      Gumshoos

      • SpectralSeraph

        I was afraid of this one, I’ll give it a shot regardless

        • Chaos

          I tried a banded one right at the beginning but its so sub par. I couldn’t be asked to experiment with it any further.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Banded was what I thought of… I’ll see what else it can run

    • Prima-Azuril

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      Ambipom, Lurantis, Mega Garchomp

    • Try using Gigalith or Porygon 2 or Tapu Lele. I actually already know, but I know they’re also beasts in VGC 2017.

    Hello

  • TheLucarioKid

    this is bullsshiet pokemon stars is fake does not make sense for nintendo to why not relese on 3ds, 20 new pokemon is like cheating old players not wanting switch.gamefreak if you do this you not gonna get my money

    • … it’s real fam.. sorry

      • TheLucarioKid

        y should we trust the leamer they dont work for gamefreak so how did they get the info about more 20 pokemon, people too gullible nowadays

        • .. boi ok first off, proof read before you type.

          The “leamer” is a trusted source and IIRC has leaked quite a bit of information that turned out to be true. Combine this with hints such as the Rotom Dex resembling the switch, the dying 3DS and Wii U, SuMo pushing the graphical limits of the system, like its happening wheather you like it or not

          • TheLucarioKid

            ROTOM dex looks like swutch hahaha funny thing i heard all day. 3ds iaint dying it had good year in 2016 why would the dying wii umake pokemo start exist in our reality makes not sense, you use common sense fact sheck aint enough

          • Trusk? Is that you?

            The 3DS is a now 6 year old system. The Wii U, while being only 4 years old, was a flop and barely pushed a decent amount of units. They are both dead in March. The Switch is going to replace them. That is just logic.

          • TheLucarioKid

            trusk wtf is that why would there be console pokemon read what junihi mauda said said pokemon is for portable switch is too bg to be a good potable, swutch wont replace 3ds that is just slly 3ds make their most of money

          • I literally cannot understand what you are trying to day at this point. For god’s sake like I don’t like being a grammar nazi but you have spell check and autocorrect how do you type like this?

          • TheLucarioKid

            you dont have to judge caus eenglish aint my first mother tongue, stop trying to chane topic you know pkemon stars is fake so stop stuntung

          • I’m not changing the topic. I actually could hardly tell what you were saying. Second, I doubt that’s true but what ever. I have already explained why it is happening so can you please back up your point of view with real evidence?

          • TheLucarioKid

            i can tell you are the evidence is out there yo have to lok i aint gonna do your work for you.

          • So your argument is: “Lol I’m too lazy to actually list reasons and evidence and just tell you to disprove yourself looooooolll”

          • TheLucarioKid

            if you cant see by now you aint using brain power to be honest

          • That isn’t a counter argument

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            He’s not responded cause you detonated the logic bomb on him Thank you for that

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          Cause leakers bring us good info that mostly turns out true

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        I know have a plan pre-order Stars get Switch for Christmas this is my logic

        • Pokenar

          I’m saving up for it myself. I made the mistake of getting my previous systems at launch and waiting months for games I wanted anyways, might as well wait and get a nice stack of games to play at once.

    • Pokenar

      May I ask how young are you? I know its been 10 years since the last one, but they were doing Third Versions up until gen 5. Platinum even introduced multiple new formes (which are treated as new pokemon in marketing)

      • TheLucarioKid

        why woyld they start making third version again, makes more sense for remake cause it is 2 games wich means it iwill make more money, age aint matter

        • Well let’s see
          B2W2: To continue the story (though IMO did it poorly) and make up for the dex as well as a few other things
          XY: They wanted Sun and Moon to be the 20th anniversary game and didn’t want to spend resources on Z and instead direct it towards making SuMo the best it can be

          • TheLucarioKid

            but why stars make no sense should be pokemon blackhole caus eof space fam, pokemon stars is fake z iwll be on 3ds not EXCLUSIVE!! i know many bout ninty i know how they work nintendo does not make pokemon with out care so read up boiii

          • Ok what? It could be called Pokemon Nebula or Pokemon Meteor or hell, even Pokemon Uranus. Stars just sounds nice to GF I suppose.

            We have plenty of evidence for Stars and logic tells us that it most likely will be on the Switch. Like, come on Sun and Moon are honestly amazing with how much they push the 3DS but the system is at its limit. The Switch is the start of a new console generation and its time for Pokemon to move

          • TheLucarioKid

            why move pokemon to switch when nintendo market sewtich like home conslole, if they are marketing th console as handheld i would understand pokemon stars leak, they wll make new handheld

          • Pokenar

            Because the Switch is both their next Console and Handheld. It’ll replace both the Wiiu and 3DS. Releasing a dedicated handheld would just cannibalize sales of the Switch.

          • It’s a console/handheld hybrid. It’s both. I don’t think it was marketed as a home console rather than a hybrid

          • TheLucarioKid

            no boo before they revelaed they said they owld reveal new home console gaming system so get your facts straight boy. we cannot tak nything the leakers say as definitive fact take with grain of sal

          • Use your spell check please. Your words are being underlined red for a reason. And they said that because they didn’t want to spoil it was a hybrid clearly. It’s a console only in part.

          • TheLucarioKid

            now you are just creating bullshit, they said home console before, they have home console games like breath of thw ind the system has pro controller it is a fucking home conole, too lazy for spell check i am going fast

          • Pokenar

            That’s why its a selling point. its a device that has console games that is portable. As I said before, also releasing a dedicated handheld ontop of that would just kill Switch sales, Dedicated Handheld sales, or both.

          • Then slow down so you don’t sound like your age. They called it a home console because they didn’t want to show the selling point yet. It has a pro controller because it is a HYBRID. It is both. How is that hard to comprehend?

          • TheLucarioKid

            i dont care i feel like i sound like 12 cause thatsm my fucking age, dont dare tell me comprehend i understand okay, stars is not coming to switch it might come to both but not only swithc becaus

          • Explain to me why then

          • TheLucarioKid

            it owwould not make sense, did you see gamefreak immediatly switch to 3ds when the ds was dying, they will tkae their time for the swich to build up an audience they are probabyl gonna release a spin off and game on switch in 2 years get real sheep

          • Pokemon would be a major selling point for the system. The reason B2W2 wasn’t on the 3DS was because it was a direct sequel rather than an advanced version. This version would be an improved version of SuMowith more pokemon, better graphics and better performance with some story fixes. Two years on the 3DS after the Switch release would be actual suicide

          • Pokenar

            For the record, I believe its called Stars because Necrozma is, in addition to having a prism theme, a dead star.

          • ah

        • Pokenar

          Personally, I think SM were intended for the Switch, but the Switch didn’t make it in time for the 20th Anniversary. That’s why much of the UI looks like it could cleanly be merged together without affecting the battle, and why they added things like trainers in battle despite the 3DS struggling with XY as it was. With this in mind, it’d be easier to produce a third version based on their original plan, rather than planning out a sequel.

  • Nick

    Stars seems like the most likely place for those walking/running models to show up. Pokemon following you in Stars?

  • Pokenar

    I can completely believe that the next main game will be on Switch, and I can even believe they’ll do a first and make the first entry on a new console a third version, but what I question is adding new pokemon. This however, can be solved by the possibility that the person heard marketing talk, where they consider Megas new pokemon.

  • Nessa Marin

    *there

  • Kishie

    Or, or, or, pokejungle can stop spreading false rumors:

    http://nintendoeverything.com/game-freak-talks-pokemon-alola-forms-and-potential-return-series-future-more/

    Masuda killed rumors of a Pokemon on the Switch over 2 weeks ago.

    • TheLucarioKid

      this dude gets it whta i am tryingto say

    • Pokenar

      I assume you also believe Bethesda when they said Skyrim isn’t confirmed for the Switch

      • TheLucarioKid

        and it is not !

        • They just showed skyrim for shits and giggles then?

          • TheLucarioKid

            it is not fucking confrimed where did they say confirmed huh link it to me pls butt

          • I never said it was confirmed. I’m saying it is all but confirmed. Like it is more or less true at this point

          • TheLucarioKid

            bullshit you did !!!111!!!

          • Did I?

          • TheLucarioKid

            well when stars is not fucking revealed at the january evemt i will be laughing

          • It won’t be revealed then most likely though

          • Pokenar

            ORAS was announced in May, mind. I do expect it at the event but it being missing from there isn’t a deconfirmation of anything but it being a launch title, which was never implied (they listed either Summer or Autumn)

          • TheLucarioKid

            why revela stars when sm came out so reently it would hider the sales potentil of the games, thats whwy it woulnt be real

          • Pokenar

            XY was revealed 3 months after Black 2 and White 2 released in the west.

          • That is why they aren’t fucking revealing it in January. It will be mid year like @pokenar:disqus just said

          • TheLucarioKid

            woah calm down you getting a little butthurt hthere laddy, xy was revelaed in january bitch

    • This is also the guy who said there would always be gyms soooooo.

      Plus none of this disproves Stars. It just means it isn’t coming right away

      • Pokenar

        Until an official announcement has happened, you pretend it doesn’t exist. Basic marketing. They could be ready to release a Switch game on release but would still say that until its announced.

        • I would also like to bring up the riddler who was correct on alot of stuff talking about another version being developed alongside SuMo

    • Armaggedon16

      “No doubt Nintendo Switch is the future, but we will have to wait for it to come out to the market and study in what way can Pokemon benefit from it. When people get it, we will have to analyze how people use it and then think about how to develop future Pokemon titles and how to take advantage of the new console.”

      This is nothing but PR bullcrap. Do you expect him to come right out and say that a new Pokémon game is in development for it.

      • Pokenar

        Exactly. It was a foolish question to ask and anyone who’s paid attention will know that, regardless of the truth, they’d just give a non-answer.

        Hell, I remember one time the former producer of the “Tales of” series was asked if they’d make an HD remaster for Symphonia’s 10th anniversary. He denied it outright saying they instead would just sell some small merchandise. Literally 1 week later Tales of Symphonia Chronicles was announced.

    Last political comment but I just want to say as i’m relieved, none of the famous, non-controversial, bad celebrities support Trump. Phew! i wasn’t listening to traitorous music after all.

  • EarthenWarrior

    I hate work so much…gnawing away on my fibers
    So that is why I came up with a new Fakemon

    Terramite
    Bug/Rock
    It has a new ability Resilience which halfs damage when their HP is above 50%
    A fairly small insectoid Pokemon of a dark grey and brown coloration, their bodies have a rocky shell and needle like legs that skitter pretty fast, their rears are fat storage tanks that constantly burns off consumed materials, and lastly is their powerful mandibles which resembles a crane claw
    “Consuming more than 50lbs of Rock and dirt a day are these disastrous Pokemon’s dietary habits, capable of chewing mountains to pieces in over a week some have reported feasting on surrounding Rock Pokemon”

    They’re a menace to anything stone!

    • SpectralSeraph

      A rocky bug with a fat anus

      • EarthenWarrior

        That can destroy mountains from the inside out if left unchecked and besides real termites (and most insects) have fatty abdomens

        I wanted to write a dex entry that was like
        “They crush and digest rocks with their powerful teeth, they occasionally try to eat Graveler and Onix”

        Yep except one club is animation so that’s OK I guess

    Question does a Bug/Steel type regional bug interest anyone?

    • EarthenWarrior

      What did you have in mind
      A steel plated cockroach that NEVER dies

        I wish we would of got sometihng like this http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/a/a2/Kasanagi_evolution.png

          OOO OOOOOOOO
          PUNCHBUGGY

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            That totally would of been the name lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah but they’d have to disguise it to sound clever
            Bugnacious Claiming that name

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            Thats amazing, i was thinking of Knockroach

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Not necessarily immortal cockroach I thought cockroach is durable, Steel type is durable so makes sense

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          Not an immortal cockroach

    • Chaos

      Well Steel is the greatest typing ever created…

      • EarthenWarrior
        • Chaos

          Unfortunately they don’t cover each others weakness so a Ground/Fighting type will have 6 weaknesses.

          Whereas a Bug/Steel has 1.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I am very much aware of that, but nonetheless a Ground/Fighting type would have the highest amount of STAB Supereffective attacks

            AND I FREAKING NEED ONE I HAVE BEEN DENIED IT FOR FAR TOO LONG

          • temporario23

            Actually, no. The two types combined cover 8 types super-effectively. Ice/Ground or Ice/Fighting cover 9.

      • Vlad

        Now this I can agree with. Steel + anything fucking works. Is there a poisonous steel type??

        • The 2017 Kurusu

    • I think Amethyst would be a better name for it because Toucannon was a mistake

  • In an interview with someone of Gamefreak or Nintendo (I don’t remember) someone said that they had to do a different version of the games / different games just before finishing S/M and that he was surprised that they were asked to do that but he liked the results.

    Another thing, was the secret shared with Rockruff and the starters coming from an official source? Because AFAIK the secret isn’t revealed yet… That could be a hint of what’s coming.

    • MenacingCascoon

      The secret was a mistranslation

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    Oh right I just got some new pokemon ideas from old things I have made introducing as the ideas

    -A Moss pig- Grass but turns Grass/Dark- two stage

    -A Bubble pokemon-Water- Two or three stages

    -A Frog pokemon- only last stage is known and no type confirmed- three stages

    • I don’t see a grass pig, anyway they are already existent concepts more or less…

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        It’s supposed to be based on a wild pig but it lives in a swamp with moss, slime, and other swamp ware on its back its moss green colored as well

    What’s the point of Honey in the games now? Since it doesn’t summon hordes? Also does anyone know a faster way to get a Destiny Knot? My Meowth rarely picks up anything at all :/

  • MenacingCascoon

    I just had an instant realization.
    Fairy/Steel is probably my favorite type combo. I love both types. They hit so many things and can take a lot too. Also every pokemon of this type is great. Mega Mawile rekts lives. Megearna blasts away the families. Klefki eats the salty tears of the fallen.
    Whats your guys favorite existing type combo?

    • Ice/Ghost I luve it

    • Poekoko

      Probably Water/Ground. I like how it only has one weakness and is my favorite 2 types.

    • EarthenWarrior

      they’re fucking gay as fucking fuck
      they’re coasting on op abilities
      Huge power is BS
      Prankster is arguably the worst ability along with serene grace
      and Soul heart is way way op

      face it without their abilities they’re crap and you know it

      • Poekoko

        Same with Mudsdale, same with any Rock type with Sturdy, how about you stop with this bias and blind hate that you shed on Fairy types just because you can’t counter them

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        ur ability is crap

      • Reece

        Oh no, Pokemon have abilities, can’t rely on them.
        Like abilities and moves make a Pokemon, you can’t bash on an ability when stuff like Sheer Force Life Orb exists.
        I mean in doubles a Sandstormer paired with a Banded/Life Orb Sand Rush Excadrill would be OP but it’s something that you would/do potentially use.

        Competitive battling is all about finding a way to beat something that is potentially better than you, and sometimes that involves unusual strategies and changing up what you have, adapting to win. “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”

        Also really, it’s 2017…”gay as fucking fuck”?

      • MenacingCascoon

        Wow 2017 and using gay as an insult. Pretty pathetic

  • TheXmasMonster6893

    QUESTION: If you had to pic a select few Pokemon to get Alolan forms whom would you pic? They can be from any region. Try to be specific in type, ability, and design. No sweat if you can’t think of the ability or design as much lol

    • Flying/Ice Noctowl
      Ghost/Fairy Delphox
      Dragon/Fairy Dragonite

      thats all I can think of

      • TheXmasMonster6893

        Any reason for Flying /Ice Noctowl? I think Noctowl would be better suited for it’s most wanted typing of Flying/Psychic lol

        • it would bean arctic owl 😀

          • TheXmasMonster6893

            That’d be pretty cool lol

    • oceanics

      Alolan Caterpie/Metapod/Butterfree line!

      Alolan Caterpie (Bug/Psychic):
      – Much lighter shade of green on its back, and its belly is a light pink colour. Its antennae are a little longer and lay back across its head onto its back, and they’re coloured a darker pink. Not sure what the story would be here exactly, but the longer antennae would be what it channels its developing psychic powers through, and it uses them for sensing emotions/feelings and such. I’d imagine them as more timid than regular Caterpie and they read the feelings of people and Pokémon around them to know who to trust and who may wish to do them harm.

      Alolan Metapod (Bug/Psychic):
      – Noticeably fatter than regular Metapod, and it’s the same light green colour as Alolan Caterpie but the lines on Alolan Metapod are the light pink colour of Alolan Caterpie’s belly.

      Alolan Butterfree (Bug/Psychic)
      – Its nose/mouth, hands, and feet are the light pink colour of the Caterpie belly. Its feet are smaller than those of regular Butterfree. Its main purple colouration is a lighter purple now. Its antennae are much longer and drape over its head and behind its back, and they are the darker pink colour of Alolan Caterpie’s antennae. Its wings are larger than those of regular Butterfree, and the lines on its wings are the dark pink colour as well now.

    Hey guys….. if we had an amusement park.. know what Earthen’s ride would be called..?

    The FEHris wheel ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    • mine would be called “the tunnel of lulling into a deep depression twice a week because of lots of personal shit and the fact you are too introverted to talk to friends like a normal human being so instead you decide you want to draw something but you are too un-motivated to do anything at all so you just go to bed and cry yourself to sleep” but I dont think the name would catch on so lets condense it to the tunnel of love

            Really?

          • I hope not my career I’m not doing anything to progress relies on steam

          • MelloMori

            Kinda. mostly Green Light’s kinda made it pretty toxic with a lot of bad, broken, or asset flip games dominated steam now. Really its more that Steam has lost a lot of its appeal due to the lack of quality control to a point that people are actively looking elsewhere for their pc games. Also the fact that a huge percentage of steam games were all posted this year alone due to green light.

            Generally a lot of people have been looking for an alternative at this point, though their really isn’t one yet. Like their’s Gog, or buying the game off of a dev’s website, but without a clear alternative it’ll continue to rule in its muck.

            xD

        • MelloMori

          Pretty sure the creator said that he’s putting the second campaign back up on the 17th. In order to allow people who missed the first line to rep the Joycon Boyz

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            this is the 3rd line

          • Ithsme

            What? I’m confused. I was asking about bank.

          • MelloMori

            Oh sorry. Kinda misread your and govnah’s comments given your both using similar icon ‘s now. Just saying that the nest run of those joycon boyz shirts should start on the 17th.

          • Ithsme

            Oh, alright then. xD

          • Ithsme

    So I’m just browsing YouTube and this one video has a thumbnail that has a picture of Lillie and says “SEX SCENE”. I’m a little disturbed. O__o

      Why would any one do that!!!!!!!?

      • Ithsme

        On one hand, we have a really disturbing animation, but on the other more likely hand, we have another bad case of misleading thumbnail.

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      clickbait

        Either way…

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    Alright I got a new pokemon for my region (I’m on fire tonight with them)

    Name: Tinkertot
    The Toy Pokémon
    Type: Steel/???
    “A popular child’s toy, after wanting to impress their owners so badly this pokemon found a way to bring itself to life; though timid by nature it’s will put its life on the line to protect its trainer.”

    • EarthenWarrior

      Hmmmmmm fight Steel with Steel!
      Herore And Ferroic

      Ferroic
      Steel
      The Justice Pkm
      Justified/Guts
      A humanoid Pokemon with a body made out of a flexible liquid metal, they have red and yellow boot and glove like markings and a large fin sticking out atop their cube like heads, a pair of long tassels extends out their necks and resemble a scarf or a cape, they also have extending shoulder blades and lastly yellow goggle like eyes and a mask
      “Nobody knows where these Pokemon originated, some reported seeing them descend from the sky; theirs body is made up of a unknown alloy that has many mysterious properties”

      They learn a plethora of moves including
      Bullet Punch, Extrasensory, Ice Beam/Flamethrower/Thunderbolt, Fly, Teleport, Superpower, sticky web (just kidding), Flash Cannon, Iron Defense and lastly Mind Reader

      But at the cost of abysmal HP

      • SpectralSeraph

        Theirs?

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Oh right this pokemon is kind of in a tamrapazoid shape made of shiny metal has four little silver and red wheels, two pupil less yellow eyes, two shiny dual pronged rods for arms, and a small hand drawn on mouth (kind of like Mimikyu’s)

  • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

    does this give us a idea how big the switch carts with be? this part of the switch starter kit by a 3rd party
    http://assets1.ignimgs.com/2017/01/04/game-case-02-1483493172066_765w.jpg

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      They look like Gameboy advanced cartridges

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        thats what i was saying. those are pretty big cartridges lol

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          A fun thing if they looked exactly the same I could play my Emerald on it if I got it

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            might be skinny tho lol

    • Ithsme

      Unless those are tall instead of wide, the slot didn’t look big enough for that.

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    Should I have Tinkertot be Steel/Electric or Steel something else?

    • EarthenWarrior

      Steel/Ghost
      It might be hard to sell an organic Pokemon as a robot toy

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Alright that’s a good type for it actually

        • EarthenWarrior

          I mean what Pokemon has wheels?

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Good point

          • Rotom-Mow <3

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    Well I just counted not counting my Grass type elephant with no confirmed evolution number I have 63 new Pokémon for my region so far (includes pre-Evo and Evos of old Pokémon) I love it!

    Goal is to have 130 or more new Pokémon in it (including pre-Evos and Evos of old Pokémon)

    • EarthenWarrior

      Hey hey hey hey, don’t be macking on Grass Elephant
      That’s my Grass Starter idea since like….2010

    • Golden_Monferno

      That sounds like its going good so far, I ought to include new Pre-Evos and Evos for the old Pokemon too.
      Also just a quick question, but what are your ideas for the main legends?

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        For Thunder version a sort of Dragon like creature but it’s pure Electric

        While Quake is still unsure of design for it but it’s Ground

        • Golden_Monferno

          Try like a dinosaur design for the ground type.
          Overall, these sound very cool!

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      hype train

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      this is outta the rails!

      • “off”, actually; but close

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    I need to ask for my Bull starter should it turn

    Fat but bulky Musk Ox with lots of hair

    Bold powerful Bull with Musk Ox qualities but still less hair and more muscular

    Neither will be bipedal so no worries

    • Ithsme

      Second choice

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        That’s what I wanted more since I just thought it up today

    • EarthenWarrior

      Sounds like a fire or water type
      Either it’s so hairy that it builds up heat inside it and blasts it out to cool down

      Or a Water Buffalo that stores moisture in its fur

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        It’s a Fire type
        Fire is Bull
        Water is Flamingo
        Grass is Lemur

        • EarthenWarrior

          So like a tiny fire bull calf with a feisty attitude then into a more mature oxen but gets frothing mad and finally a big muscular bull that get so angry its entire body engulfs in flames

        • SpectralSeraph

          I call lemur

  • Ithsme

    I just thought of something today.

    Why isn’t the Xbox One suffering from the same naming issue that the Wii U did? The wii u name mislead customers into thinking that it was just an add on to the Wii, so many didn’t even know it was a new console. So why is the XB1 having a similar issue? Wouldn’t people think the “one” would refer to the first XB, and not the newest version? It seems like just as misleading a name as the Wii u is.

    • Wii U’s misleading name was also topped by questionable advertising which focused on its unique controller, reinforcing the impression of being an add-on.

      • Ithsme

        That makes sense, but the XB1 is still losing that “word of mouth” advertising in a sense. If you just heard or read about it then the average consumer still might think that it refers to the original.

        • I kinda disagree with that: the original Xbox was pretty obscure except to the Xbox players themselves, who are also the least likely people to mistake people saying “Xbox” today, to refer to the original Xbox.

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      because hypocrites

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      LUCKLY WE DIDNT GET NINTENDO SWIITCH

      • Ithsme

        Lol I hadn’t even thighs of that!

    • thegreatcarbinkle

      to be fair, Xbox had the number theme with 360 and they always name their consoles xbox. Now you have nintendo who every single console had a different name, SNES – N64 – Gamecube – Wii to name them all. Now if you see they kept the Wii name on, hoping that because of how successful the Wii has been, the name will be enough brand power to sell the console. Sadly this backfire because they stopped the tradition, the legacy of naming the console something completely new.

      • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

        if we would of got the Super Wii it would of been different

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          most likely, because quite frankly the usage of words is key in a succesful marketing and advertisement. With the word super, people would say improvement, better. The only thing is how uneffective the name would. Do you really buy a console with the name super on it. Maybe in the past it would being, but in this generation some people would be ridicule by saying “oh yeah i bought the super wii”

      • Ithsme

        But the original was called “Xbox” but since that’s just the brand now, you’d have to either say “the original Xbox” or “the first Xbox” (basically where I think it would get confusing to consumers) to distinguish what you’re talking about. I get what you mean, I’m so glad they dropped the Wii brand though.

        • thegreatcarbinkle

          the thing is the word one has a bigger impact than first or original. The word ‘One’ does gives that sense of completely fresh or new.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            and its also all in one.

          • Ithsme

            In what way at all? “One” to me would refer to the first in a series, not the third. It doesn’t sound fresh to me, but I didn’t comment to get in a disagreement about console names. 😛

          • thegreatcarbinkle

            one: the only one -> the only product the matters; like govnah said, all in one. One -> the top, the best One -> the beginning of something new

            see the word first would symbolize first of everything imo.

          • Ithsme

            ¯_(ツ)_/¯

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            it part of the slogan
            “all in one, Xbox one”
            its meant to be advertised as a home entertainment not just a console

    • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

      its funny tho we call it the switch but in reality the consoles name is Nintendo Switch clearly. which is a pretty neat name. it flows well

      • Ithsme

        I mean for us educated consumers there’s no need to add the Nintendo.

        • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

          yea ik its gonna be like, Eh yo can i get a switch, like how people ask for a xbox instead of Xbox one.

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    Why does it seem like earlier everyone was depressed? I understand personal problems and other stuff, but I wonder why is the world so sad these days?

    • Either 2016 hangover, or holidays withdrawal, most likely.

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Yeah it saddens me when people like Starstorm, Seraph, and even Earthen are depressed and such cause literally this place is my place to talk to awesome people who share my interests (unlike most in my area) and I see people are sad it just makes me sad too just more for them than about a lot of other stuff

        • Ithsme

          I’m always sorta here, you can talk to me if you’d like. I hope they’ll get over that soon as well.

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Yeah especially Star cause I don’t know if it’s a big secret but I do care for her quite a bit (also not saying I have a crush or anything, and not saying I like her anymore than the rest of you but still) and she has such amazing talents in Animation and Drawing and is beautiful so it makes me sad when people like that get like that, same goes for talents with all of us surprisingly everyone here has talent and could make it big one day

          • Ithsme

            That’s really nice of you to say that.
            I care about everyone here as well, and I know they’ll get through this. Tough times happen, and life goes on. Best we can do is just wait it out I guess and hope for the best for them.

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Yeah we all will get through this Go Team Pokejungle!!

          • Ithsme

            😀

          • Golden_Monferno

            Very true, no matter what we all get through the hard times

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            And come out on top in the end

            (Also in later news almost have a Duosion in Moon)

          • Golden_Monferno

            Oh nice, I also used Island Scan earlier this week, but on Poni Island, and got myself a female Samurott with an Adamant nature

    • Ithsme

      End of break is always a depressing time, at least for me.

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        It’s kind of for me too but for me more I’m just pissy and a tad moody but less on Internet cause I know if my full force was here I’d be ignored I’d be that bad with showing everything that can be built up inside me (even though this is my normal me)

        • Ithsme

          Yeah, I get what you mean. I have a 4 day weekend coming up which should be pretty nice though, so I can look forward to that at least.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            and jan 12….

          • Ithsme

            Of course, that goes without saying. xP
            I really REALLY wish I was off on the 13th, I’m going to be super ticked off if I miss pre-orders.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            i would be too

          • Ithsme

            Here’s hoping that we’re both lucky. Where do you plan to order from (given the choice)? I’m going to try Gamestop at first, and if I can’t get that than anything is fine.

          • Switchmas RedEastGovnah

            amazon to secure
            gamestop to attempt to secure instore then cancel amazon

          • Ithsme

            Good plan. Bad part is that 80 dollars of the money I have set aside is in GS gift cards, so if I can’t order from GS than I have to somehow come up with 80 dollars by March. I’ll probably try to trade some games in or something, Idk.

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Yeah we all that have that will be happy

    • EarthenWarrior

      The world is going down the drain faster and faster, depression is at an all time high

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Yeah but I wish something would make people happier… that’s legal at least

        • Ithsme

          I would say that it’s a bunch of small things that make the world a happier place, rather than one large event.

    • TheNintendoChip

      I get really tense when I’m around my parents for too long. I can’t stand them sometimes…

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        That’s pretty understandable parents can be bothersome at times

        • TheNintendoChip

          Lol I wish it was just that. My mother is a narcissist and very mentally abusive. But that’s my problem I guess

          • Ithsme

            That sucks man, sorry. :/
