Pokémon Bank, the massive online storage system and transfer means for Pokémon, is due for a major overhaul by the end of January 2017 – here’s what we’ll get in the update and what it means for Generation VII!

As of right now, Pokémon Bank is only compatible with Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. And its companion app, Poké Transporter, is only compatible with Pokémon Black, White, Black 2 and White 2; bridging the gap between Gen III and Gen VI if you use the proper transfer channels in each subsequent game.

In short, the promised update will make Bank compatible with Pokémon Sun and Moon, and allow Transporter to make transfers from Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow on the Virtual Console. Along with this new compatibility, a brand new National Pokédex feature will be implemented into Bank: grabbing data from XY, ORAS and SM to see if you’ve caught them all! But other than those two changes, no other details have been released on whether or not other features will be added.

So What Does This All Mean?

Like we’ve discovered with other transfer means in the past, once you transfer a Pokemon from any previous generation to Pokémon Sun & Moon, it won’t be able to go back to that era of games. That means any ‘mons you bring over from Gen VI to Sun & Moon even once cannot make a trek back to XY and ORAS. Why is this such a big deal? Well, there are so many things that aren’t currently obtainable in Sun & Moon. Take Mega Stones for example: since items aren’t transferable via Bank, and only a little under half of the Mega Stones are available for purchase in game, most of these forms are now constricted and exclusive to Gen VI (for now).

More over, this is the first time since Generation II that Gen I Pokémon will be able to be brought over to a newer era of games. It’s been a solid twenty years since we took our first steps into the Kanto Region, and in that time dozens upon dozens of changes have been made to the game. Back in RBY, Pokémon only had four IVs – Attack, Defense, Speed and Special – and only had a maximum value of 15. It wasn’t until the overhaul in Gen III that we adopted the current 6 IV, 31 value IV system that we all know and love. So what will happen to our beloved Gen I Pokémon? Will their IVs and Natures just be randomly assigned upon transfer, or will there be a way to influence these changes? Will some Pokémon just randomly transfer as shiny since they didn’t exist until Gen II? There have just been so many changes, and unfortunately we won’t get any of the answers until Pokémon Bank updates sometime this month.

What are some features you want to see in the future of Pokémon Bank? Any predictions on what event Pokémon we may get with the update if at all?

    Thirst

    I’m really confused with gender, like what if a Pokémon I named feminine becomes male and vice versa?

    • This shouldn’t be a problem when imported from gens that Pokemon already have genders. When importing from Gen 1 though… time to be careful with the name and stuff.

      • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

        That’s what I was meaning

        I’ve been playing since Diamond, I think I’ve noticed the genders :p

        • The actual problem is some hacked Pokemon do swap abilities and genders and natures when imported between gens, because they have the wrong Personality Value when hacked, so it is an actual problem only for hackers or people who have received hacked Pokemon and when transferring between gens 3 to 4 to 5.

  • I heard some people say “No Guard Fissure Machamp” won’t affect Game Freak. That is correct for VGC 2017, but it will negatively affect (the non VGC 2017 rules part of) Battle Spot.

    So I am guessing GF are thinking of combating this in some way.

    • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

      In all fairness, Machamp is slow af and has numerous weakness

      It’s probs just gonna be a niche set tbh

      • A niche set that everyone needs to have a counter for. Scarf makes it fast enough. Presence of a guaranteed OHKO would make Battle Spotters fill their teams with fliers, levitaters, sturdy pokemon and balloonists, along with things that defeat Machamp outright AND are faster than Scarf Machamp.

        • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

          Scarf Champ isn’t that fast, it can’t even beat invested base 80s iirc

          Not to mention it needs to invest in speed for it to work and it then either loses its bulk or its offense

          • You can universally slow down the entire enemy team (and the ones that Fissure will hit anyway) by using things like Sticky Web.

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            Sticky Web isn’t that good, it only has frail setters and Defog is common af now

          • Defog does have a counter in Defiant, just like Rapid Spin in Ghost Types. Also “it only has frail setters” surely doesn’t include Shuckle…

            Since we’re talking about Battle Spot and not Smogon where OHKO is already banned and Defog is not prevalent, a player can only choose three Pokemon, and the theoretical Fissure Machamp doesn’t even need to show up so half the team can enable Fissure Machamp to succeed and half of team counters the counters to Fissure Machamp, so each win in Battle Spot singles becomes a coin flip.

            For Doubles, it’ll be even easier to support Machamp with things like redirection and fake out, near ensuring an opposing non-floating target is taken out guaranteed on turn 1. And Machamp doesn’t even have to run Scarf in doubles too because its bulk is respectable.

            I’m done explaining why this is metagame centralizing and I’m pretty sure Game Freak, if they are in anyway smart, won’t want that.

    • Ithsme

      I heard a rumor that all will transfer with HA. It makes sense, they’ve said that the transfer would have something special.

  • zess

    If my mew’s are shiny upon transfer or any of my pokemon for that matter I’ll be a very happy man!

    • Hmm… that makes me wonder if there’s any cheat/glitch detection feature they will have to stop people just churning out Mewtwos and Mews?

      Well obviously they ain’t letting Missingno through…

      • zess

        That’s true. Because I have two Mews from the glitch so I hope they don’t ban duplicated pokemon🙁

        • Well they never stop clones from getting through even in bank… IF they’ll block your mews it will be through other things…

          • zess

            Your right they could just ban mews from those games because they can’t be caught naturally.

      • zess

        But imagine if they did and they updated sun and moon to add new pokemon to the pokedex and Missingno was one of them? While I know it won’t happen it would be a great fan service if it did.

        • Well it has to be Bird type…

          • zess

            What would be the reasoning behind this? I don’t know about Missingno that well.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Fehhh bank only means that everyone will be bringing back all the previously op legends which is just another headache for me

    • What if Tapu’s, UB’s and/or Silvally are revealed to be not “legends” based on the upcoming Alola Friendly rules? Does that mean you can use them now?

      • EarthenWarrior

        They’re still legends to me, it’s like saying the Swords of Justice or the Genies aren’t Legends but they clearly are and I want no part of fighting them or using them

        And I never said Silvally was a legend

        • Ah so you arbitrarily assign things as legends, eh? Ok then.

        • SpectralSeraph

          I forget that Regice is a top tier threat cause it’s a legend

      • Chaos

        Sillvally isn’t a Legend though.

        • EarthenWarrior

          But the Evolite Type: Null is still a very real threat also Parting Shot is getting annoying

          • Chaos

            Nope. It’s shit

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            It doesn’t have recovery tho

            It’s baaaad

          • EarthenWarrior

            plenty of things don’t need recovery to be good, I’m saying with invested bulk plus Evolite it can pretty much absorb plenty of damage since it only has to worry bout fighting type

            It’s not perfect but those unprepared for the unexpected could cause damage

          • SpectralSeraph

            There’s a fine line between “Annoying” and “overpowered”

    • Chaos

      Because you suck at beating Pokemon that are weaker than Garchomp?

      • EarthenWarrior

        So your gonna say that Tapu Lele or Fini won’t just one shot it?

        • Chaos

          Magnezone one shots Tapu Fini and Tapu Lele. So it’s also OP? I understand

          • SpectralSeraph

            It can run HP fire, but eh

            Araquanid, the RU Pokémon that kills UB’s and a few tapus that didn’t deserve an OU analysis over Alolan Exeggutor

            (Dead serious, without terrain, Koko can’t OHKO Araq, but Araq can kill it

            Also poison jab is nice

          • Chaos

            A 2x super effective HP Fire isn’t OHKOing a Magnezone. Even from a Specs Lele.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I never said Magnezone
            I said Garchomp

          • Chaos

            And I said Magnezone. Cos I though we were pulling out random Pokemon with obvious type advantages to prove our points.

      • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

        Savage

      • Armaggedon16

        Heatran and Landorus are weaker than Garchomp?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Heatran is just an annoyance in the way but Landorus is still a deadly staple

        • Chaos

          We were talking about UBs and Tapus. 570 BST be 600. Of course there are some Pokemon that are strong than Garchomp, but Garchomp Is a lot stronger than some of the legendary Pokémon which Earthern thinks all fall under the same bracket of overpowered.

  • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

    The Tapu are overrated threats and aren’t nearly as bad as Talonflame last Gen

    Dont @ me

    • I agree. It’s been proven that a major VGC tournament without a Tapu or a UB.

      • SpectralSeraph

        Love it! My boi Araquanid shined

    • SpectralSeraph

      Agreed, besides Lele in singles

      I love Bulu only because the grassy terrain support and typing is rather nice for my team

      Though I won’t lie, I actually want to kill someone when I fight Lele

    • Armaggedon16

      Talonflame wasn’t bad at all. It’s best moves give it recoil,it’s weak to stealth rock and a bulky Pokémon can easily shut it down.
      From the Tapus, Fini’s lack of recovery kills it,Bulu is good but has many weaknesses,Koko’s lack of physical moves hold it back,Lele is the best one.

      • SpectralSeraph

        Bulu is my favorite rn because it fits really well on my team
        I just flat out despise Lele
        Koko’s moveset…
        And I’m fine with Fini

        • Armaggedon16

          Koko could have been the best one if it had gotten Play rough and Zing-Zap.
          It’s a shame considering Koko is my favourite Fairy type design wise

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah… I agree… would have killed Celest so hard

            But seriously, Bulu is probably my favorite ATM

          • Armaggedon16

            Speaking of Celest, It and Rotom-W are the only 2 Polemon I complain about it in competive.
            Why the hell does it get freaking Leech Seed?!?

          • SpectralSeraph

            You have a problem with Celest, run a Magnezone

            I have issues with Mega Gross and Lele, who has NO excuse to be that strong… it’s stupid

          • Armaggedon16

            I don’t Personally like Magnezone, so I don’t use it.

            For lele, use Mega Metagross. It can’t touch it AND mega Metagross gets a boost from Psychic Terrain

    • SpectralSeraph

      Also, Talonflame was kinda trash IMO

      • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

        Not really, in XY at least

        • SpectralSeraph

          I thought so

          • Armaggedon16

            It was Definetly good, but I never had trouble with it not considered it broken.
            You know what was Broken?
            Aegislash.
            And it got a buff instead.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh, yeah

  • The Singular Kuppo

    Wait… You can catch missigno in the Pokemon red and blue 3ds port? If so what would happen if you try to transfer it?

    • Alyssa Dunn

      probably become a weird kangaskahn. or other pokemon from transferring missingno to gen 2

  • SpectralSeraph

    Smogon.. I get that this is a new gen… but why the fuck are Kyurem, Kommo-O and Metagross in FUCKING RU?!

    • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

      TBF Kommo-o is baaaad

      • SpectralSeraph

        But Metagross and Kyurem?

        • MelloMori

          Metagross can easily die to any ghost or dark type attack, so It’s been RU since X&Y. As for Kyurem; it has five weaknesses and at only 90 base defense and S. Defense it’s not very bulky, and thus its pretty easy to take down.

      • SpectralSeraph

        And Kommo-o isn’t RU. It’s a UU mon, it’s not abysmal, just not RU tier

        • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

          Fairy types exist and it has no good fighting attacks

          • SpectralSeraph

            True, but it isn’t ru

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            Wouldn’t be surprised if it goes to BL3

            (the one between RU AND UU IIRC)

          • Ah, close, that’s BL2. 🙂

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            Thanks

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Kyuren in RU? What’s next? Keldeo in UU oh wait..

      • SpectralSeraph

        Yeah XD
        No but seriously, UU is a freaking mess
        On the bright side, trashroar is the only starter in RU

        • The Singular Kuppo

          Incineroarvin RU? Welp, he surpassed my expectations XD

    • Chaos

      I’m tired of explaining why 🙁

  • SpectralSeraph

    Welp I found a a bad player on smogon and I won because of a bit of unneeded luck… he raged

    • Armaggedon16

      Lol bad players and Rage quitters are everywhere there

    • Ben

      “You only won because of the CRIT!!!”

      If I had a nickel…

      • SpectralSeraph

        Raged over a CRIT despite the fact my other moves would OHKO

  • SpectralSeraph

    ….Y’know what’s funny? Not counting megas this gen actually has some of the best tiered starters in total…. ironic, but still

    • Does Gen 7 have anything in OU like Greninja..?

      • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

        Ditto, I really wanna know but can’t find anything XE

        • SpectralSeraph

          Whaddya mean

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            Their tiers

          • SpectralSeraph

            Not OU, but high uu

      • Armaggedon16

        Ash-Greninja 😀

      • SpectralSeraph

        Kinda.. two upper uu

  • SpectralSeraph

    I have a love hate relationship for smogon

  • SpectralSeraph
    • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

      RU serious

      • SpectralSeraph

        Do you see this team

        • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

          Togekiss and Suicide should not be in RU XD

          They’ll be banned soon, I’m telling you that

          • SpectralSeraph

            Yeah XD
            I hope it does

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Wait…. Suicune and klefki in RU?

      • SpectralSeraph

        And entei

    • Ben

      That was painful to watch.

      • SpectralSeraph

        I know…./
        But VIKAVOLT IS SO GOOOOD

        • Ben

          That thing is bulky af

          • SpectralSeraph

            I love it!
            Of course not as great as Araquanid, but still amazing

  • SpectralSeraph

    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7pokebankrualpha-514598070
    Things I learned
    1. Vikavolt is so good!
    2. Smogon is broken

    • Ultron

      If Vikavolt had like 100 base speed it would be amazing..Too bad it’s slow. Still good though.

      So many great quotable lines. Especially about Danny’s nipples. Though it’s kinda disappointing that its being moved to a premium service. Oh well, that’s why third party sources exist.

    • zess

      Gotta re-watch the older episodes it’s a shame this show isn’t on television.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Then they’re gonna have to cut corners and censor a few things

        It’s better the way it is

      Why am I not surprised?

      • Ultron

        Honestly I wonder what keeps you coming back if you’re “not a troll.” You never contribute anything of value.

        • Ziggy Fartdust

          I do, you just shut it out because it goes against the echo chamber.

          • Ultron

            Do you? All you ever do is complain. Try saying something else for once.

          • Ziggy Fartdust

            Again, you’re shutting me out to ensure an echo chamber of positivity and no hurt feelings.

          • Ultron

            I’m shutting you out because you troll and spam. You only bring up complaints about pokemon becoming PC. Only thing you want to talk about.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Just don’t fucking engage with him
            The sooner we as a collective shun and ignore him his only options are to get lost or be a bigger nuisance until he’s laser X’ed out from disqus

            Then we can have some peace

          • Ziggy Fartdust

            Again, you just want to hear good things to spare your feelings away. Reminds me of that episode of Steven Universe.

          • Ultron

            It’s just sad. I’m sure if he stopped trolling he could contribute something.

          • Ziggy Fartdust

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            Becuase these are kids games genius

            It needs to be appropriate for them

            There’s nothing wrong with changing something that could genuinely be seen as heavy racism

            My god your dense.

            And how is Jynx racist in anyway? You’re just seeing racism where ever.

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            Bravely Default is aimed at around 12+ in the west. Those are still kids

            You’re angry about removing molestation simulator? Get a life

          • Ziggy Fartdust

            No it’s aimed at teens and young adults, hence the T rating, you dingus.

            Also
            >molestation simulator
            Nice straw manning there. Is Pokémon Amie a molestation simulator then?

            Those aren’t racist on their own. They’re taken from Zwart Piet.
            Your being racist now.

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            It’s a 12 plus in Britain, genius, America isn’t the only place in the west.

            No, that’s like saying petting your pet is molestation XD

            Nobody’s saying GameFreak was purposefully racist, they just happened to make a Pokémon that matched some racial stereotypes and politely changed it

        • Ziggy Fartdust

          To ensure the circle jerk, right?

          • Ultron

            We call Gamefreak out on their BS regularly, we just actually have valid points, unlike you.

          • Ziggy Fartdust

            And what points what be?
            Not enough diversity?
            Too much toxic masculinity?
            Too white?

          • Ultron

            No, none of that. Mainly problems with the story or features.

          • Ziggy Fartdust

            …So, exactly what I just stated.

          • Ultron

            …..no….
            I haven’t seen anyone complain about any of those things here ever.

          • Ziggy Fartdust

            People were complaining how the female options don’t apply for the males too.

          • Ultron

            That doesn’t fall under any of those categories. The main problem with customization is the lack of male hair styles in comparison to female.

          • Ziggy Fartdust

            No, people were upset because the male character couldn’t wear dresses or put on make up.

      • The Singular Kuppo

        Why is this happening again? -_-

        • EarthenWarrior

          Because y’all don’t know how to not talk back to him

          • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

            He comes back anyway Earthen

            If we ignore him he still speaks, if we engage him we at least get some entertainment

          • Yeah, Zig’s kinda funny. I met some anti-censorship guy on TV tropes already, maybe it’s the same dude, moving here since he got banned there.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Somebody kill me or something
    Today is mondo boring…..my stupid sleep study thing is a load of ass and I’ve officially entered the boring months for retail since the holidays kept me busy….and to top it all off I’m still concerned with how we’re gonna procure Nintendo Switches
    I mean are they gonna be dicks and only send a handful to be preordered and to stores?
    I just want to be a smart and savvy consumer and ensure that I can get one because the last thing I want to be is left in the dust by those overzealous types who snatch up everything in the blink of an eye

    • Ziggy Fartdust

      Don’t worry; the Switch will be filled with Tumblr approved games so you don’t have buy a thing.

    • Ultron

      I might need to start working fridays to save up for a switch… ugh

      • EarthenWarrior

        I just need availability
        Like I would pay 500$ this very second for one maybe even 600

    • I’ll probably have to (try to) visit the local video shop every day until their pre-orders open, then pray I don’t get wait listed.

  • BloodyRat EastGovnah

    Game in UK has opened pre orders for the switch, slated for a March 17th release

      News flash; no one cares. People want Xbox One and PlayStation 4, not Nintendo toys.

      • BloodyRat EastGovnah

      • SpectralSeraph

        What self respecting human being uses the phrase “News flash”

        • BloodyRat EastGovnah

          A person whos part of the media so we should listen to him

          • SpectralSeraph

            Whoa shit

        In all seriousness, why do you waste your time here? Nobody here agrees with your ridiculous ideas and nobody treats your trolling with even a grain of seriousness and you don’t even like Pokémon

        You’re literally just wasting your time, it’s kinda sad

        • Poekoko

          I agree with you RAD.
          Except for how you say “Nobody here agrees with your ridiculous ideas”
          All ideas should be accepted here, no matter what.
          It’s how he spreads his ideas that’s the problem, not the ideas.

    • The Singular Kuppo

  • Ziggy Fartdust
  • SpectralSeraph

    Would Earthen be a better tornado or hurricane?

    • The Singular Kuppo

      A tornado filled with rocks (and hammers)

      • EarthenWarrior

        Actually that’s not far off
        Not to sound too nerdy but tornadoes could uproot and suck up so much debris and that’s what makes them so dangerous

    • He doesn’t really use any mons that can learn Twister or Hurricane, though…

  • EarthenWarrior

    I am super duper bored…..
    So I’m trying to figure out if I should have a trio of Normal/??? Horned Bovidaes or just pick one

    Like a Normal/Rock Nubian Ibex (Precibex)
    A Normal/Steel Moose with metal antlers
    Or a Normal/Ice Deer called Frostag which has Icy horns

    But so far I like my Nubain Ibex

    • Deerlia

      I like the deer idea!

    • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

      That isn’t a trio of bovids, that’s two members of bovidae and a cervid

      • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

        They’re all pecoran tho

      • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

        Wait wrong way round

        That’s actually two cervids and only one bovid

        Step up your bio game Earthen

      • EarthenWarrior

        Whatever, they’re big hoofed horned mammals

        I’m just gonna drop the Moose and Stag only because not only is it repetitive it also is plagiarizing the Regis in subtle way so I don’t wanna get my butt sued with that kinda crapolah

        So this shall be it
        Precibex
        Normal/Rock
        The Mountain Goat Pkm
        Rock Head/Sheer Force HA: Reckless
        It is a tall muscular quadruped goat Pokemon with a dirt brown coat and soot grey accents, a goat face with a few stalactites under its chin but the main attraction is the colossal stone antlers that sprouts atop their head, also their hooves are made of stone
        “Precibex constantly fight one another over territory, they slam their mighty antlers into one another until they break off or worse pushed off the cliff side”

        • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

          Mm no

          There’s plenty of differences if you bother to look, especially because deer don’t have horns – they have antlers.

          That’s like comparing a vulpes to a lupus

        • SpectralSeraph

          The wild Ledian used Mach Punch

          • EarthenWarrior

            Please that would do literally nothing

            252 Atk Ledian Mach Punch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Aggron: 52-64 (18.5 – 22.7%) — possible 5HKO

            0 Atk Ledian Mach Punch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Aggron: 32-40 (11.3 – 14.2%) — possible 8HKO

    • SpectralSeraph

      Normal/Steel… normal/Ice
      (Cringes so hard I become a ball)

      • EarthenWarrior

        Look say what you will but the decision is final
        Normal for being mammalian and the others whatever their antlers are made of

        • ŘÂĎ~ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง~ŘÂĎ

          Ibex don’t have antlers, they have horns :p

          • EarthenWarrior

  • Prince Fae

    Why is Saggy Flopdust not banned again yet, like truly, honestly.

    • zess

      I suppose because while he’s very annoying and his views are narrow minded and baseless, he’s pretty much harmless… like a male mosquito.

    • SpectralSeraph

      Apparently he is, he just finds ways back

      • EarthenWarrior

        This is why whenever we ban somebody I should break their legs and abandon them in the woods

        • SpectralSeraph

          And slather him in something to attract predators

          • EarthenWarrior

            I think that goes without saying, also I steal their wallets….and shoes

          • Steal one shoe just to inconvenience them if they survive

          • EarthenWarrior

            rookie mistake, shoes are very valuable

    • The Singular Kuppo

      Don’t worry, he’ll eventually run out of IPs

      • Poekoko

        That is literally impossible

    • Maybe he is using VPNs? Idk how those work

      • Prince Fae

        that seems like an awful lot of work just to be a troll

        • Well if he is going to troll he clearly has quite a bit of time on his hands

    • SpectralSeraph

      I’d join if I could… I have a ton of ideas

      • Deerlia

        You are welcome to leave out your ideas if you want for other artists to attempt, or you may contact me privately and i can consider seeing what my mind comes up with, after the contest is over and all.

        • SpectralSeraph

          Okay!

    • EarthenWarrior

      Easy
      Alolan Vileplume
      Mega Excadrill
      And…… Does it have to be a legend because I have only one attack Aerial Drill Claw!!!

      • Deerlia

        Just draw pictures for em now, that’s the rules~

        • EarthenWarrior

          hmmmmmmm doable but i always screw up on some of Excadrill’s body

          • Deerlia

            Well, give it a try, you can always do it again~

    • Alyssa Dunn

      i guess i’ll try this contest

      • Deerlia

        Great, good luck~

    • Alyssa Dunn

      also does the reigon variant have to be from gen 1 to 6?

      • Deerlia

        Because of alolan pokemon actually existing in gen 7, it would be a good run from Gen 1 to 6, yes… However, if your heart is set on remastering a pokemon from alola to another reigon before, i won’t stop you.

    • Golden_Monferno

      I might do this, it depends on how busy I am this week

      • Deerlia

        That’s fine, it will end next Wednesday if all goes well, good luck~

      I beleive i’m very much alive here

    • I mean… my heart is beating so

  • Contact came out 👌🏻

  • MenacingCascoon

    Since barely anyone is talking about the article anymore, I will. I really do wonder how bank will do things. I feel like they are just gonna make a update. Adding national Dex, new mega stones, maybe some action and stuff like that, but to be totally honest idk how the gen 1 thing will work. If no old mega stones come back I will be very disappointed.

    • Prince Fae

      me too, none of the fairy megas are available :C

      • MenacingCascoon

        Yaaas. I’m ready to bring back my past megas and be back in the scene.

        • Prince Fae

          My Mega Altaria dominated in doubles and triples(RIP)

    • MenacingCascoon

      Also the bringing back of many mega stones switches up the meta more which kinda sucks, but kinda good. They probably will add one final hack detecting system too.
      Yay for the return of my worked Pokemon

      • Chaos

        I thought you can’t transfer items through banks so how will we get the remaining mega stones.

        • MenacingCascoon

          I’m saying if they do make a way to bring it back

    • BloodyRat EastGovnah

      I heard the National dex is now part of bank

    Hola

    Questions dawg

    Is there any animals (mundane or mythical) you feel are over due for inspiring a Pokémon? (including Pokémon you feel weren’t adapted well enough or were only partly the inspiration for something)

    >Like every dog breed, but especially
    (Any sort of bulldog, corgis, shibas, pugs, chihuahuas, papillons/phalènes, great danes, labs and retrievers)

    >Peacocks

    >Sea angels

    >Nearly every type of wolf

    >Krakens

    >Gorillas (Eww Slaking is bad)

    >A non legendary phoenix

    >Hydras (Hydreigon doesn’t resemble one at alllll besides being multi headed)

    >Cerberus

    • SpectralSeraph

      Well my fangame has three of those
      The Hydra, Sea Angel, and Kraken

    • Golden_Monferno

      Well there is one they should’ve done a long time ago:
      A Griffin

      I’m desperately waiting for one -_-

    • Prince Fae

      Flamingo, Platipus, Pegasus, Mouse Lemur, and it would be cool to have a real giraffe, I love girafarig but I feel like its only loosely based on one.

      Also another sheep pokemon would be lovely.

    • The Singular Kuppo

      A rabbit Mon (yes, I know that there’s already 3, but I found one too ugly the other too creepy and the other too inappropriate)

      And a dolphin mon

      • Lopunny is fine and is only sexy if you sexualize it =.=

    • EarthenWarrior

      I want to make my Phoenix Peachick and Peacock

      there was idea that was a hell-hound into an orthros then a Cerberus

  • Golden_Monferno

    So funny thing that I believed:

    Before Sun and Moon came out, I made a bet with my friends and predicted that after X and Y’s gen there would be a new generation with it being based around the sun and the moon, with the sun legendary being a Griffin and the moon legend being a Wyvern. Ontop of that, I thought one of the starters would be a Grass/Flying type.

    And when the first Sun and Moon trailer came out with Rowlet, Popplio, Litten, Solgaleo, and Lunala, my jaw dropped. For the most part, I was right, with me being partially right about what the legendaries would look like. Like I was extremely happy to see all that I predicted was true.

  • Now that I am playing R/B/Y again I realize the difficulty of those games OMG the Mt. Moon without any repel…

    Why why why like this trainer just makes the game crash to red

    • Ithsme

      Do you mean crash to rad?

    • TheNintendoChip

      I wanted to add a bunch of pokemon swimming in that one underwater area. It completely broke the event I already had.
      At first it just didn’t run, and I figured that part out…
      Now it just stops in the middle of it? Ok then

      • D:
        I got the battle to work. no idea what I changed though

  • EarthenWarrior

    ok Showdown is being a total dick
    3 Greninja Dark Pulse Flinches then 2 crits

    • InfinityD4

      is it a dick? is Earthen Just Unlucky, or is it Karma? more at 11.

      • EarthenWarrior

        both

        • SpectralSeraph

          Run Araquanid, it walls Grenny stupid hard

  • MelloMori

    https://twitter.com/Wario64/status/818945492407025664

    So just throwing this out here for people who are hyped for the switch. This leaked today and assuming Nintendo is following the usual rules of pricing and this is real, just replace the Euro for the USD or CAD to have a rough price that their selling these as.

        You are welcome my friend.

        • EarthenWarrior

          I wanted all that glory

          • MelloMori

            But their is no glory to be had my friend. Nay Glory is earned in posting something substantial, like the game explain video that just was put up as of the moment that I’m typing this

    • Ithsme

      Eh not a fan of third party accessories. 😛

    • what is that thing? the rectangle button device

      • MelloMori

        Its a game pad used mostly for fighting games. Granted this is a third party device, however them making it at the launch could mean that we can expect to see some fighting games early on in its life, the most likely being Pokken.

    What I WISH they would give us is Gen II on the VC. >.<
    Gold/Silver/Crystal were my FAVORITE games growing up, and they are still tied for first as my favorite in the entire franchise.

    What I wouldn't give to be able to hunt my long lost Gen II Shinies, without ever having to worry about a dying internal battery again…

    And being able to transfer them to future games via Bank? YES PLEASE.

    • BloodyRat EastGovnah

      Yes i agree! Gen II on VC would be amazing, Maybe in the near future for 3ds and/or switch

      This graphic reminds me of….toucannon’s beak

    • Prima-Azuril

      Has anyone else noticed how the Switch’s control is literally the same but one side has the button on top and one on the bottom? A bit lazy of a design if you ask me.

      • Dubb

        That’s pretty much the point so both sides can be used as individual controllers

      • … no? It’s for a more comfortable controller

      How did you get phanpy so early

      • Golden_Monferno

        In the Gen 2 games, you can access Route 46 by the first route in the game, and only in Crystal, there is a 5% chance of finding Phanpy in the wild, plus it has to be morning.

        • Ultron

          Oh, I didn’t know you could find it there. And I even have Crystal.

            I bought it last year

          • Ultron

            I got Silvery first, but the internal battery was corrupt and wouldn’t let me save so I had to return it. Then I found Crystal at the mall. It was fate.

        • EarthenWarrior

          those long noses have a tendency to flee though same with the bear

          But after 8 hours of searching i got them and power leveled

      I have a feeling it’ll happen in the next week. The new VGC season starts on the 17th and it’s open to the national dex. Gotta imagine they’d want people to have access to said National dex before then lol

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Then why cascoon lie below? And really just want to fix the biggest wrong in Alola

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          The tropical Monkey Aipom gets absolutely no appearance in it at all

      • Slight nitpick: It’s the new “Battle Spot” season. Not VGC season, BTW.

        • TheWinterMonster6893

          Sorry that’s what I mean, but my point still has meaning lol

  • Prince Fae

      Good luck

  • As far as I know the following have been confirmed for the 1.1 patch:
    > Fixes Kadabra evolve moveset (now it’s no longer garbage until you get Psychic TM).
    > Fixes disconnect bug with Z-Parting Shot and Z-Memento.

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      What is that is it the Bank or something else? I really want it now

      • I think everyone told you already there’s no bank. 🙂

        Anyway, I’ll probably post more if I see more of changes posted on other sites.

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          Ok 😢 wahhh!

          • Well PJN and I will probably be informing you in the off chance bank comes out…

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Yay!

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      I more want Bank for my Aipom back

      • Prince Fae

        yass aipom is one of my favourite pokemon!!

        • The 2017 Kurusu

          And yet its a tropical monkey and what never made it to first tropical region?

          • Aipom came from Johto, but I’m not sure if that place is tropical…

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Almost every catd its printed on is made tropical seems like a tropical pokemon yet I just feel it should have made it in

          • Ok I just asked google the question: “Are there monkeys in Hawaii?”

            And the answer is surprising… 🙂

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Yes?

          • “There are no wild monkeys in Hawaii. Monkeys are not native to the Hawaiian islands. In fact, only two species of mammals, the hoary bat and the monk seal, are native to Hawaii.”

          • Don’t pay attention to that though, because Mankey and Primeape are available… 🙂

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Oranguru is kinda looking like it belongs but why Aipom dissed

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Still tropical not Hawaii is what I more thought like how does a Dragon and Super Computer brained beast exist? But not a freakin purple monkey? They never thought that through really

          • Yeah they have like at least 3 other primates in Alola.

      • Ithsme

        I want bank for my shiny turtwig, pinsir, drifblim, scraggy, and my legendary set.

        I really wish I had my old pokemon from my first runs of DP and BW.

  • ShinyXatu

    We’re getting absolutely battered by storms here in the Bay Area, and just now we had these bizarre pulsing lights next to our house that were pink and blue and lit up the whole sky. I think this is a sign that Diamond and Pearl remakes will be announced on Thursday.

    • aliens

    • Ithsme

      I’m saying that theres a 95% percent chance that we won’t see pokemon, but I’d love to anyway. I just want to things:
      1) Monolith soft’s new project or Xeno X port
      2) Huge suprise

    • Golden_Monferno

      As much as I would absolutely love for DP remakes to be confirmed, I have huge amounts of doubt it won’t be confirmed just yet. It does seem too soon to be announced.

    • SpectralSeraph

      …..that’s a sign that I want a photo, that actually sounds really friggin cool

      Stay safe!

      • ShinyXatu

        I took a video, we’re theorizing it was some kind of emergency beacon or something. We have absolutely no idea.

  • The 2017 Kurusu

    Shiny Hunt question time: Which one to go after

    Bonsly, Grubbin, Lillipup, Drifloon, or Makuhita?

    • I vote Bonsly, I always found the Sudowoodo cute.

      Yellow balloon might be a more dramatic color change though.

    • Grubbin

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        I think this is what I may go for only cause its the easiest to find

        • SpectralSeraph

          And Vika is good too

    • Ultron

      DRIFLOON

    • Golden_Monferno

      Vikavolt’s shiny is amazing, do Grubbin

    • Prince Fae

      go for the golden child abductor!

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Thats gonna be second Grubbin first

    • SpectralSeraph

      Grubbin is super good

  • Wes

    So Knock Off in game makes you lose the item? Sure wish I knew that earlier. Stupid Hariyama.

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      Its a bane to all Weavile lovers, item users, and everything that hates defense and Fighting type

    • Lol that is literally the only reason people use it

    • I don’t think it does. I recall getting knocked off and the lucky egg was still there. What did you lose?

      • Disposable items are the only ones that get knocked off in the main game I think

        • That’s what I thought… and now I want to test it. I’ve got a convenient Decidueye just for this occasion…

      • Wes

        My Chandelure lost its Focus Sash. She had it in battle, and it was knocked off. I assumed it would return or go to my bag, but it’s nowhere to be found.

        • If Chandelure was hit at full health with the Focus Sash, it wasn’t Knock Off that consumed the sash, it’s because Chandelure actually used it up to survive the attack with 1HP.

          • Wes

            But it didn’t come anywhere close to 1HP. That’s why I’m so confused.

          • Oh then maybe if Starstorm’s assessment is right, it was knocked off as it was a “consumable item”. An expensive one, but still..

  • EarthenWarrior

    um I dunno but i can’t do internet stuff in my copy of moon because it wants new software or something. please help also using a 2ds here

    • what. you gotta be specific

      • Alyssa Dunn

        im saying that it can’t use internet features unless I get a software update

    • Simply go back to the main menu, close Moon, and patch the game.

      • Alyssa Dunn

        you say that but it seems that glowing dot isn’t next to my copy of moon

      • Alyssa Dunn

        ..

    • Wes

      Open the eShop, search Moon, and download the patch.

  • Ziggy Fartdust

    So given how badly butchered Sun and Moon was, is there any hope for Nintendo’s other games?

    • Fuck yeah there is!

      Mario looks to be reexamaning 3D platformers to bring us another classic. Better than the game changers that were Mario 64 and Galaxy!

      Zelda is finally becoming what the creators first dreamed of 30 years ago. A beautiful world to explore and changes and improvements to the zelda game play we all love.

      Kirby is hitting its 30th anniversary and is going to do something really awesome probably!

      Smash, Splatoon, an Mario Kart may be getting advanced ports for the Switch

      When you just enjoy games, there is always stuff to be excited for!

      • Now channeling the spirit of Earthen…

        “Don’t engage.”

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Pokemon=Secret to life

      • Oh! Also the amazing indie games that will be made with how open the development program is.

      • The 2017 Kurusu

        Maybe like my Kirby Fan idea

        Kirby’s Dragon Quest
        “Dreamland is taken over by dragons and kirby becomes dragon kirby a powerful new kirby to fight them.”

        • “Dragon Quest” is a Square-Enix RPG series, you can’t use that as a subtitle. 🙂

          • The 2017 Kurusu

            Dragon Journeys is the best I got then

        • wat

      Yeah, of course. I mean, have you seen the BotW trailer? That trailer always gets me every time.

  • So I’m heading towards my next tournament this Sunday and my team (I’m not even done building it!!!) might be: Vikavolt, Kartana, Tapu Fini, Gigalith, Arcanine so far.

    My last one could be Garchomp, Porygon 2 or Celesteela.

    • Alyssa Dunn

      i’m sorry i didnt look hard enough for the update

      • No prob, it’s easy to miss an unannounced patch. 🙂

    • MelloMori

      Solid team given the current meta. I’d probably still favor Porygon 2 for the trickroom option, but it might be a bit expected now.

      • I might be running a gimmick if I’ll be using P2… it won’t have trick room options, it’ll either be a standard staller or a conversion sweeper.

        I would have good bulky mid speed stuff that are decent against the trick room matchup… and while I bluff a trick room set, the actual goal is speed control using Vikavolt’s String Shot.

    • Prince Fae

      evolite porygon 2?

      also gigalith is cool, its not something you see very often

      • Eviolite is the usual item on it, but I may have other plans… 😉

    • SpectralSeraph

      Hmmmm, I like it

  • Damn I didn’t realize just how excited I am for the Switch. It really crept up on me!

    So if the cast of Moana has Alolan based teams, what would they be?

    • Well, Moana’s pet looks like Granbull, so gotta have that, at least.

      Maui might have all the Tapus, Hariyama and Marowak.

    • The 2017 Kurusu

      Moana team

  • Ithsme

    I guess tomorrow to keep me busy I’ll perfect my bingo card when I get home from school and go to bed a little early. Switchmas might be a late night for me.

    ALSO GUESS WHAT THERE’S A POSSIBILITY THAT I’LL HAVE A SNOW DAY ON FRIDAY IT’D BE A SWITCHMAS MIRACLE

    • I have no possibility for snow for two weeks

      • Ithsme

    I just watched the whole GameXplain predictions discussion. Getting so pumped! I do agree with them though, that Stars won’t be announced for a while yet.

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      Yeah I don’t see it getting announced any earlier than May. I’d say maybe mid to late may is our best bet.

  • Golden_Monferno

    Just beat Tate and Liza in Emerald, and they were actually difficult. Lunatone kept on spamming Calm Mind and took out a good chunk of my team, and I was down to my Slaking and Hariyama.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Alright this is why earthen don’t play emulator Pokemon games no’mo
    i apparently have a game time of 50:07 because of the Throttle (those unfamiliar it speeds up the game)

      I have that problem with stantler and golduck, I always think they are part psychic

      • … GOLDUCK ISN’T PSYCHIC?

        WHY IS PSYDUCK NAMED PSYDUCK THEN?

        • Ultron

          Trollfreak. If a pokemon’s type ever needed to be retconned, it’s psyduck and golduck

        • Prince Fae

          I consider them pseudo psychic types, considering psyducks signature move is confusion and both stantler and pysduck are said to have psychic powers

        They always mess me up especially stantler I mean it had an entire episode showcasing it’s illusionary abilities right?

    Less than 2 days until the big event! I spent most of my afternoon finishing work so I won’t have much else to worry about this week. Tomorrow is the day I get HYYYYPED and ready for action. Let us pray for decent stock of this thing…

    • ShinyXatu

      Oh yes, I almost forgot. I think that, if Animal Crossing Switch is announced, it will be slated for June 2017. Just a guess.

  • More patch changes confirmed:
    > The infamous “Shell Smash Kommo-o” in Battle Tree has been nerfed! It now has Draco Meteor instead.

  • “It wasn’t until the overhaul in Gen III that we adopted the current 6 IV, 31 value IV system that we all know and love”

    Speak for yourself. Ever since their inception, Gen 3 IV’s have been a blight on the series. I’m was very disappointed in Gen 7 for many reasons, one of them being how it went about allowing us to boost IVs.

    Grind to 100 and then give a random, hard to get item to a random NPC. How is it that the new fire emblem phone game that got announced figured out how to do this and year a 20 year old series is still struggling? Boosting and maxing out all attributes of your party members should BE the game, not just some once mentioned side attraction; and I’m still shocked that they continue to grant additional and ever changing options for managing EVs, but have yet to actually explain in game how they work.

    I guess why waste effort on that when you could instead have a professor suffering from a midlife crisis who’s too busy living vicariously through children to actually ever do any real research.
