Imagine you had knowledge of a brand-new game; when would be the best time to share its existence with people that cared? If you chose “on the day that its predecessor finally arrived 9 months after it was announced”, you might just be a jerk. That’s exactly what Tom Phillips, and gaming site Eurogamer, decided to do on the release of Pokémon Sun & Moon with the revelation that a third game, codenamed Pokémon Stars, was in the works.

Two months and one giant Nintendo Switch press conference later we’re still no closer to learning about whether or not the game exists. Other gaming journalists, eager to capitalize on the buzz about the title, even casually doled “info” on Reddit (yes, I’m referring to Laura K. Dale).

I like rumors. I imagine that most people visiting my site like rumors. What I don’t like is when professional gaming sites build up hype for a title that seems like it will be revealed soon, but ends up being a no-show. With Sun & Moon being announced a full nine months in advance, it wouldn’t be too crazy to assume that we would get a five or six month advance notice of Stars if it was going to be a Summer 2017 release (which was later “pushed back” according to these same sources).

Just because you have information doesn’t mean you need to share it right away. Professional gaming sites (which this site is not, we’re a fansite) should temper expectations and let fans have at least a little enjoyment of a game’s release before they’re bombarded with news about a successor that may or may not exist.

You all may feel different, but I had to weigh in with my disappointment on how the “professionals” have handled things.

    WHAT THE HELL KIND OF SITE POSTS RUMORS LIKE THIS ANYHOW?!

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      Exposed?

    • Zachary Davis

      what about buzz feed?

  • Serenotic

    Sun and Moon just came out not too long ago. I think I can wait for Star’s release.

    • Serenotic

      If it exists, that is. Lol

  • Bait.

  • TheWinterMonster6893

    How is it a let down? Eurogamer/Laura Kate Dale/Emily Rogers don’t have any power over when the game will be announced.They simply reported on what they heard while the information was still fresh to them. Did it seem like the right time to release the info on the release date of SuMo? Maybe not, but in no way did it take away from SuMo. Either way you can’t blame people for saying what they hear. Info gets leaked to people all the time. Sometimes rumors come out months or even as long as a year from when the games actually get announced. That doesn’t mean the people reporting on said rumors are trying to string people along. They’re just getting the info out when they can. Let’s say Stars did get announced without any prior rumors. then Eurogamer stated that they knew all along. People would be calling them liars or just wanting to jump on board then too. You can’t blame people for saying what the DO know and not what they don’t. None of the leakers for Stars ever stated that it would be shown off or even announced anytime soon. And once again I doubt the idea of a new Pokemon game ruined SuMo for anyone. It’s pretty obvious at some point we’ll get a new game. It certainly didn’t ruin it for me……..Sorry for the rant hahaha

    • PJ

      Journalism isn’t just about sharing news, it’s also about when to share news. Gaming isn’t the most life-or-death news genre, but I think it should be handled in a way that respects fans. I think in this case they just wanted the big $$$ that came from Sun & Moon being a hot topic and they knew it would drive traffic.

      • TheWinterMonster6893

        That may be, but you have no way of knowing what they were really thinking. Again I’d say that yes maybe the actual release date of SuMo may not have been the most appropriate time to do it, but it’s not like it really ruined anything for anyone. News site/stations report news in this fashion all the time. I’m sure you have also thought at one time or another that certain rumors or news could help this site out a bit. You just gotta play the game. Them posting about Stars so early may not have been very tasteful, but it’s not like it was hurting anyone. either way everyone has a right to their opinions lol

        • Ziggy Fartdust

          So you support sloppy Tumblr journalism. Good to know.

      • Snazzy EastGovnah

        Yea its like how Pokemon Go was hot thats all u saw from news articles was rumors that were never true

    • SomeGuy

      100000% agreed

  • Ziggy Fartdust

    Shit like this is why we need Gamer Gate.

  • Ziggy Fartdust

    So how can Stars fix Sun and Moon?

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      The Translator got fired lol

      • Healing Fae

        I hope thats not actually the case, yeah he messed up big time but I thought it was just nerves, poor guy

        • Snazzy EastGovnah

          Yea It does suck for the guy, but i thought there was more then one? was it the same guy the whole time

          • Healing Fae

            yes, Im pretty sure every person had a different translator, they just happened to give that guy most of the work

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            i do feel bad, it must suck messing up. I’d be nervous too if i had to translate for 500,000+ people

      • MelloMori

        Honestly it’s probably not the that the guy got fired. After the internet had a good laugh at his misery, People pretty quickly realized that most of the presentation was scripted, but Suda51(being him) pretty much went completely off script needing the translator to translate in realtime. Made worse was that apparently filled his speech with old Japanese fighting game references that even a vet. translator would have trouble picking up on.

        • Snazzy EastGovnah

          Yea, but it still sucks that guy is one of the reasons people hated the event

          • MelloMori

            Yeah, but that’s because most people are kind of idiots who would hate on someone for little to no justifiable reason rather then look deeper and see who’s at fault.

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            yea i understand, i didnt think he did that bad of a job, i think was more focused on the game trailers lol

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      OMG THIS IS HYSTERICAL!

  • Healing Fae

    Plot twist, what if Trollface (you all know who I’m talking about) is actually Verlis coming to get his revenge

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      Verlis expose video incoming

        “This just in, Pokejungle hates men and treated me badly.”-Verlis

      Shit…I think you’re right. #CaughtHim

  • SomeGuy

    Gaming “journalism”, similar to comics and film “journalism” isn’t journalism. These industries are little more than fan sites. And guess what, there’s nothing wrong with that. As long as these people don’t turn out to be lying trolls, gimme all the info your heart desires. I’m not 5 years old. I know how to temper my emotions and expectations and on the off chances that I fail to do so I don’t blame other people. Has responsibility for oneself delapitated to the point that people are blaming news sources for creating too high of expectations for a product? Seriously… Screw modern society.

  • Golden_Monferno

    Usually, for rumors like these, I can expect that it has a high chance of being fake, so I take in a grain of salt. Plus, I’m not really expecting Stars to be announced right away, taking in consideration the the fact that PokeBank has not released yet and Battle Competitions have just started (basically) for Sun and Moon. I will expect it to be announced in May at the latest, though.

  • Ultron

    I have no opinion on this, nor do I care that much, but I respect that you’re so passionate about it, PJ 😀

  • The Kirby Kurusu

    So this is where you were all hiding

    • Golden_Monferno

      Yep, even though I got here about 20 minutes ago XD

      • The Kirby Kurusu

        I’ve been staring there for 20 mins. XD

  • The Kirby Kurusu

    I have a new Pokémon for my fan-region its a Tardigrade and water type one of its special features is smallest Pokémon on record so far being 3 inches tall

  • Veiland K

    Since this article is a little negative, I’ll tell you something pretty cool and that makes me happy. I got my first ever hunted shiny last night, it was a Rowlet that I got at fourteen eggs. I have only ever done one hunt before this, for Chespin. Needless to say, I didn’t get it. P.S. I named him Roy like red arrow.

    • Veiland K

      🙂

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      Nice job! Once I get my shiny charm (come on Bank!) I’ll prolly start Masuda-ing for Pokemon too. I can deal with the battles for hunting without a charm, but breeding is so boring and I won’t do it without the charm lol

      • Veiland K

        Oh yeah, I also got my shiny charm last night.

  • Prima-Azuril

    Gen 4 remakes are much more likelier than Stars and they didn’t even get any mention :/

    • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

      Not really, if SuMo gets sequels they make more sense to come out. And tbh, it has a lot of plot threads to be resolved

      • MelloMori

        Yeah, but plot thread’s being unresolved wouldn’t be new in Pokemon. Look at gen 6 and a lack of any squeal games. As well you can’t really ignore the elephant in the room that their’s always going to be a stigma to making a direct sequel to any pokemon game after the considerable lower sales of B&W 2.

        • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

          XY didn’t have any astounding ones though, compared to say, Lillie going to Kanto or the whole ordeal with Mohn. XY just had minor plot threads like Zygarde and the ghost girl

          • MelloMori

            Yeah, but your points pretty subjective. Lillie’s point is pretty much taken care of by talking to Wicke at some point in the game saying that she’s going to see Bill since he’s a good bet on curing her mother, and Mohn’s kind of not important in any sense. He might be their father, and he might not be. However anything about him would be pretty irreverent. It wouldn’t really add anything more to the game since he’s barely mentioned in the story and him coming back really doesn’t have that many options to explore from a story telling point.

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            I mean true, but it’s undeniable that the plot points are at least more apparent than XY, not to mind the fact that SuMo were a phenomena and a sequel can cash in on that

            That’s not that tied up though. Do they ever meet Bill? Can Bill even help Lusamine?

            Also Mohn is obviously their father. He looks like them, is mentioned inadvertently if not by name (can’t remember if Gladion does say so or not, but he mentions his father’s role in Ultra Beast research and the pioneer mentioned in the dimension lab place is called Mohn), and is the reason that Lillie, Lusamine, and Gladion are where they are now. It’s his absence that drove Lusamine insane and caused her to isolate her children, which drives the whole point of SuMo. From a story telling point, it’d just be interesting to see what happens when someone is reunited with a long lost loved one and how they’ll cope with that change and then, cause each other to possibly change once more or to reflect on how they’ve changed. Saying he’s irrelevant is just unjustified imo

  • Reggie (Ithsme)

    I was expecting this to be an article saying that stars was all a lie. xD

  • Reggie (Ithsme)

    I sorta felt the same way you did PJ. Everyday on my way to school I check pokejungle, and if I’m being honest, I was kinda dissapointing to find out that the game that I was so excited to play was going to inferior to this next game, the announcement timing was pretty bad.

  • Golden_Monferno

    I need help with something in Emerald:

    So I’m not sure what levels my Pokemon should be when taking on the Elite Four, I’ve been doing a little bit of training and this is what my team looks like so far:
    Sceptile (lv 47)
    Hariyama (lv 43)
    Slaking (lv 44)
    Crawdaunt (lv 44)
    Manectric (lv 43)
    Flygon (lv 45)
    The first Elite Four member’s highest leveled Pokemon is level 49, so I am trying to aim for there. Though, in your opinion, how much more should I train up to? And is Victory Road the best place to level up at, or are there other ways to get exp faster in Emerald?

    • MenacingCascoon

      Level to 50-53
      Best place to train in match call- If not then I guess Victory road. (The reporters arent bad either)

      • Golden_Monferno

        Thank you so much

    • The Kirby Kurusu

      Sydney is kinda easy depending on what you use but I think your good but yes all except Hariyama and Sceptile are perfect for VR I beat Sydney with

      Sceptile lvl.42
      Raichu lvl.45
      Aggron lvl.40 something
      Sealeo lvl.42
      Dodrio lvl.40 some
      Heracross lvl.39

      He was semi hard but with Hariyama you are Golden

      • Golden_Monferno

        Did you remember what it was like for the other Elite Four members with your team?

        • The Kirby Kurusu

          I lost to Phiobe sadly In emerald I have never beaten past Dyndney so far

    • Chaos

      I always aim for lvl 50.

      Gabby and Ty, and the match call feature are your best bet for leveling up quick.

      • Golden_Monferno

        Thanks

    • The Kirby Kurusu

      Wait does Sceptile know Pusuit? Or does any of them know it?

      • Golden_Monferno

        Sadly no… But I can reteach Sceptile Pursuit if you want

        • The Kirby Kurusu

          Its alright but because Phiobe switches constantly that a strong choice to fight Phiobe

          • Golden_Monferno

            I’ll reteach Sceptile Pursuit then
            Also, my Slaking knows Shadow Ball, so it can just spam that for the majority of the battle too lol

  • MenacingCascoon

    I actually agree with this article. It wasnt in their place to reveal anything new. Sure they are journalist, but you have to know when to reveal information. Pokemon isnt a topic we NEED to know about. If they do reveal early, they could have waited a couple of months. They revealed Stars maybe a month or two after SM. Give us some more time with the game before you start making everyone talk about a new game. Honestly, I feel like Im being rushed with sun and moon, everyone is making hope list for Stars, and I barely even compiled a top 10 list for things a love about this game. Heck, I havent even finished everything in my Sun (stupid battle tree)

    However, I don’t if they even know when Stars will be officially revealed so they probably just revealed asap it just in case (Which I do not agree with). I think it was very unprofessional of them to reveal it this early.

  • zess

    Really hope these rumors are false. I would Hate for Stars to be just sun and moon, so why give it the code name to begin with? Well only time will tell…

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Sun and Moon had a code name lool. Project Rainbow

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      What if stars is a code name for DP remakes and sources just fabricated the new Pokemon stuff because it sounded like a sequel to SM?

  • EarthenWarrior

    I’ve been telling you blokes for weeks that Stars isn’t real
    We just got Sun and Moon 3 months ago and you greedy craps collectively believe in false rumors

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      It’s fun to speculate.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Aka stoking the fires of false belief and like fire it spreads to the point where people actually believe it’s real

        • Reggie (Ithsme)

          Yeah doesn’t that sound like a blast?

          • EarthenWarrior

            No, no it doesn’t
            I find zero appeal in getting excited for a game that won’t be,

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            ¯_(ツ)_/¯

          • EarthenWarrior

            Wipe that smirk on that face mister

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            ¯_(o_o)_/¯

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Release would be October 2017, which is roughly a year after Sun and Moon. And just because this article which doesnt contain any facts at all implies Stars is fake, doesn’t actually mean its true. Laura Kate is a very respected journalist with legit contacts so debunking her leak because it doesnt sound logical to you is just lame.

      • EarthenWarrior

        It very much means it’s fake “And just because this article which doesnt contain any facts at all implies Stars is fake, doesn’t actually mean its true.” the bs is so real I can feel it

    • Ultron

      Is it that farfetch’d?

      • Veiland K

        One of my favorite Mons, plus, right now, I don’t even care if Stars is real or not, all I want is walking animations for pokemon and a pokebank update

    • MenacingCascoon

      It might not be, but it does come from a very reliable source. Its honestly 50-50. Or 60-40 against it being fake

      • EarthenWarrior

        Don’t care, either it’s real or not take your pick

        • MenacingCascoon

          Lol I don’t think there’s a third option.
          “I believe its 60% stars and 40% not stars”

        • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

          Not everything is black and white Earthen, not everyone wants to scream ‘it’s real/it isn’t real’

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well in the end I end up being smarter and level headed

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            Smarter and level headed would be accepting you can be wrong or right, idiot

    • Chaos

      Finally someone who speaks sense.

    • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

      I mean

      Any third version would be in development either at the same time or just after SuMo, and planning would’ve been early too. It’s a believable rumor, get your smug ass off your high horse

      • EarthenWarrior

        Rumor schmumor
        Lately as of XY direct sequels have bee fleeting
        XY went straight into ORAS and Sun and moon went onto their own thing to pathetically fill in some of the many cracks XY made

        So don’t blame me, blame the formula

        • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

          Um not really

          We’ve got two pairs of direct sequels (BW2 and GSC) and they came years after another, they can pop up pretty much any time because there’s no pattern

  • TCRowlet

    I’m more upset by the Mario Kart rumors. “Oh, I’m hearing 16 new tracks for the Mario Kart port.” And then it comes out that there will be no new tracks lol. I’m still excited to play Mario Kart on Switch and the new battle mode, but that’s false hype right there.

    In regards to Stars, I didn’t expect it announced at the Switch event.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Yeah they said no new courses tracks or nuthin’ sadly I don’t feel like shelling out 60 clams for a battle mode THAT SHOULDVE BEEN LIKE THAT TO BEGIN WITH

      • EarthenWarrior

        Damn it I want some clams now
        Or sea food…
        I’d kill for a raw bar
        http://northriverlobsterco.com/files/22fc56e0fdaf6ad0525931f64ba5548e_full_size.jpg

      • TCRowlet

        I’m still gonna get it, I’m glad they finally fixed Battle Mode. But the constant rumors of we could be getting as many as 16 new tracks only to be met with uh, no? No new tracks at all. That’s a letdown.

        • MenacingCascoon

          Wait so is it paying $60 for an addition to an old game mode. And new net characters…
          Why buy it?

          • EarthenWarrior

            That is what we call a DLC

          • MenacingCascoon

            Wait are you serious? Its $60?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yes, yes it is why do you thing we’re getting our collective panties in a twist

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            Not everyone bought the original

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            Because it’s the old game + DLC + new characters and battle mode, and not everyone bought the game before

          • TCRowlet

            Because I’m a sucker and love Mario Kart

          • MenacingCascoon

            But. Will it even havethe dlc from mk8?

          • TCRowlet

            Yes it has all the DLC

          • MenacingCascoon

            Lol GG Mk8. My last MK game

          • EarthenWarrior

            If they offered a discount in the future maybe
            But Earthen ain’t gonna be a sucker for this shit

        • EarthenWarrior

          Very poor on their end honestly
          They can wow me with the switch day and night and sure I might go for it but my higher part of my brain is the telling me when they pull their typical lazy stupidity

    • Healing Fae

      what do you mean no new tracks? we saw new tracks when they showed it off at the switch event

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      TBF 48 tracks is a ton for a MK game, but if the new battle mode and characters is really are there is, I might reconsider purchasing it.

  • Reggie (Ithsme)

    Something just occurred to me. When Kimishima took over, he said that Nintendo directs would take on a new format in 2016. Well, here we are in 2017, and directs are just more sparse, they’re still the same.

  • TCRowlet

    Instead of Stars, how about some news on Bank

    • MenacingCascoon

      I predicted it will come from 17-24
      Screen shot this

  • … I honestly don’t get the point of this article

    • EarthenWarrior

      It’s telling y’all to stop being stupid, think RATIONALLY and actually gain some common sense

      It’s the kinda kick into the pants I revel in

      • People really shouldn’t have expected this to be revealed in freaking January. Like I’m 99% sure this is real but come on… they would not reveal it now!

  • Ferencz Zoltán

    maybe the pokemon company going to reveal Pokemon stars in a later month like may to the pokefans enjoy sun and moon because if they reveal in January everyone forgot about Sun and Moon play Stars that is actually the same game just the difference (spoiler alert) is that Necrozma is the main legandary and Cosmog evolveinto that and also no exlusive found.Passimian is available at day and Oranguru at night and Rockruff evolves into lycanroc(midday) in the day and Lycanroc(midnight) also Tortunator is found at day as well as Alolan Vulpix Drampa and Alolan sandshrew at night.So everyone be disapointed in september if they reveal in summer.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Doubtful they usually pull these kinda reveals during low gaming seasons like late winter when they can tease it at E3

  • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

    Lmao at people complaining about Kart 8 Deluxe when Pokémon’s been pulling the same shtick for nearly twenty years

    • MenacingCascoon

      Yes Pokemon definitely adds just 10 new Pokemon every game
      Same exact region in every game
      Adds one new feature
      Includes features from previous games
      Yup Pokemon has been doing that for 20 years

      • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

        Or maybe I was talking about the third versions

        Which are literally

        >Small story changes
        >Oh look we tweaked a character design or two
        >These three Pokémon have new forms

        • MenacingCascoon

          That’s literally what I was talking about though

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            In that case deluxe adds more than third versions lol

      • EarthenWarrior

        They should just make a game based solely on Pokemon, just no new features and or gimmicks and just make a shit ton of new Pokemon

        • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

          No because that’d be boring, imo the gimmicks are the only stuff keeping the game alive

          Not to mention that why just shit out Pokémon when you can store and release

          • EarthenWarrior

            (I honestly think you just go out of your way to disagree with me)
            How could a large selection of Pokemon be boring? I mean what’s honestly more important features or the damn thing it’s based on aka Pokemon

            Why don’t we put it to a poll
            Who votes more Pokemon less features
            Or
            Who votes less Pokemon more features

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            No Earthen, just because someone doesn’t share your opinion doesn’t mean they’re out against you

            And its my opinion, I don’t need a poll to assure my fragile ego like you do

          • EarthenWarrior

            Bah, Gimmicks are killing the games
            They oversell the idea and sacrifice a lot to give into them

            They show just focus on decent sized rosters and a actually solid story

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            SuMo was solid for a kids game

            Gimmicks appeal to kids

            Do you get the recurring theme here

      • Prima-Azuril

        Technically the sequels count like that, you know B2W2, Platinum, etc….they add no new Pokemon and keep most of the previous things the same.

    • People are complaining about everything

      • MelloMori

        Personally My favorite complaints have been people complaining to Nintendo that Skyrim going to cost $60, despite its still being the same price on the XB1 and PS4, and console makers don’t actually set the prices on games; dev’s do.

        • Ultron

          But..it’d be portable skyrim. How is that not worth $60??

          • MelloMori

            It most certainly is. It’s just that people want to have a reason to be angry. Like that being a reason. People saying the new Mario looks like sonic 06 because one level appears to be taking place in a city. That Nintendo doesn’t care about Metroid any more, despite Reggie openly saying give them tine to announce that a game might be coming. That the controller’s are way to expensive despite the hardware that they have in them probably being half the cost alone(Yeah their expensive, but remember that Amiibo scanner in the joystick. The only price we can go off of with those things is from the 3ds version which is around 20 dollars, so seeing something cost $70 isn’t impossible to understand.)

            People just want to have a reason to be upset about everything because the simple truth is that it seems that we’ve kinda reached a weird point in our culture, if you’ll allow me to rant. Where in saying for years “vote with your wallet” we’ve kinda twisted it around that people see the end consumer as the most important thing and thus anything that isn’t to our advantage is bad, even if what the consumer wants varies. That really I’ve seen people openly say that they wished that they held back the switch for a holiday release simply so that they could have an insanely strong launch lineup, not not realizing that those games would largely hurt one another’s sales,and is the likely reason why nobody’s trying to release anything to compete with Zelda across the board. That the system should have been sold at a loss and expected to make a profit from the games like Sony and Microsoft, but at the same time Microsoft’s been losing money from the XB1, and while Sony’s making bank from the PS4, the company’s openly talking about merging divisions of their company to save money do to their poor sales across the board in their other divisions, and that could easily change in the future.

          • Yu Narukami

            YouTubers like Haedox aren’t making things better either.

      • Healing Fae
        • ehhhh no. It seems kinda like a cop out to keep PD alive in one way or another. I prefer to think that her shattered gem is in the chest in Lion’s mane

          • Yu Narukami

            I feel the same way about people saying that Rose is just regenerating inside Steven. Total cop out.

        • Yu Narukami

          I’m pretty sure Lion has something to do with the pride Rose was with in Buddy’s Book.

          • Healing Fae

            I think so too but vaguely, I don’t think Lion is related to them in any way, just that rose loves lion, so lion (whatever he is) is a reflection of her love of lions, but I do think there is more to him than just being a lion

          • Yu Narukami

            Naturally; sadly normal lions don’t have hammerspace in their manes.

            What if Lion is Rose’s son? 😛

          • Healing Fae

            no.

          • Yu Narukami

            I’m kidding. It’s an old SU fandom joke.
            …Although some people do seriously cling to this theory.

          • Healing Fae

            … well then

          • The Kirby Kurusu

            What if Lion… Is Rose?

          • Healing Fae

            I once had that thought as well, that lion was roses subconscious, but I don’t really think that much anymore

          • Ultron

            Maybe Lion is Pink Diamond.

    • TCRowlet

      I’m complaining about the rumors that there were 16 new tracks which turned out to be false. I’m still excited for the game being on the Switch. I think MK8 is the best in the series history.

      • Snazzy EastGovnah

        also best soundtrack in Mario Kart

    • Chaos

      Well technically ‘third’ versions were done away with almost 10 years ago. But yeh I see what you mean.

      Personally I never understood why people buy both versions of a new generation…But let’s not get into that.

      • MenacingCascoon

        I do it because I wanna replay, but i don’t want to get rid of my save file.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Ditto, just sometimes you just wanna play again

      • Healing Fae

        you can get all the version exclusives, replay the game without deleting your save and trade with yourself for trade evolutions

        • Chaos

          Doesn’t that mean you need multiple 3DS as well? :O

          Maybe I’m just poor…

          • Ultron

            :Pokebank

          • Healing Fae

            not nessecarily there are ways to trade with yourself using the GTS I do it all the time, you just need to know how to do it

          • Chaos

            Oh..Hmmm…Guess you could?

            Yeh I’m probably just poor. Just the thought of buying 2 video games costing £30-40 each (when they’re basically the same thing) makes me uncomfortable.

            To each their own.

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            I bought both sun and moon and still haven’t touch sun yet lol

          • TCRowlet

            Same, I’m waiting for Bank so I can use my Shiny Snivy

          • Healing Fae

            I mean I’m poor too, but I work hard and save up my money so I can, I don’t always buy two versions though, I have only done so with XY and Sun and Moon

      • Yu Narukami

        Buying two games is weird in the first place.
        The whole point of dual versions is to trade with your friends.

        • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

          And to make money, but TBF is part of the whole trading concept is the point of the game

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      In what way, exactly?

      Pokemon gives us an altered story, more character development, tons of new features, etc. and MK8 deluxe is supposedly giving us a few purely aethstetic characters and a battle mode (which does look fun, I’ll admit).

      • Snazzy EastGovnah

        People are still gonna buy MK8 Tho!

        • Reggie (Ithsme)

          I probably will eventually too (after my birthday in August is most likely), just as I buy every third game, but I just don’t understand the comparison.

      • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

        Pokemon literally just alters what they have, and third version doesn’t give as much development as much as it literally just gives a few new characters and a few new interactions

        Platinum was probably the best third version strictly in terms of new content (Emerald is arguably the best for manipulating what content it had, and I might not be a fan but I agree) but they’re literally no different from deluxe in that they’re just upgrades that should’ve been in the game in the first place, or actually should’ve been the game. At least MK8 Deluxe had the excuse that you can’t play MK8 on the Switch

        • Reggie (Ithsme)

          That’s fair, I understand what you’re getting at here, but the amount of new content in a third version can’t be compared to an altered battle mode.

        • MenacingCascoon

          Mk8 doesn’t have batle frontier
          Pokemon wins

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            Please stars don’t fail me

          • MenacingCascoon

            Its the last chance

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            Well I wouldn’t say that but I’ll admit I’m scared.

          • MenacingCascoon

            If they can’t put Battle frontier in a switch game all hope is lost for good

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            After all the teasing and Anabel it’ll hurt me so much if we get another stupid maison. I kept telling myself that the tree was better, but no. It’s not.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Thank you. Everyone keeps saying tree is better. Lol no it isn’t. Its the same old battle tower. Tree is harder than previous tower remixes. If that means its better then there you go.

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            I was just trying to deny the fact that SM’s post game is almost as bad as XY’s was. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved SM’s main game, but the lack of a decent postgame is starting to show for me, I’m feeling sorta bored with SM right now, as much as it hurts me to say.

          • TCRowlet

            Pokemon hasn’t had a Battle Frontier in a long time.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Yes that’s true. Pokemon in losing for almost 10 years

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            A-anything can change, right? R-right? Right? ;_;

          • TCRowlet

            2nd region :'(

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            Pokemon following you.

            Hey, at least we have hope there.

          • Yu Narukami

            Maybe.
            The Battle Frontier tease in ORAS may have been for the DP remakes.

          • TCRowlet

            That Frontier sucks compared to Hoenn’s

          • Yu Narukami

            Bruh.

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            Well said, my Rowlet friend.

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            Better than the maison.

            In fact, anything is better than another maison/tree.

            Besides, that’s the frontier that I grew up playing, so I’d be happy with that. Plus it’d show that they haven’t given up on longevity.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Its the truth.

          • Ultron

            Still better than no frontier..

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            That’s what’s great about the tree. IT’S A LANDFORM! They can’t just say suddenly that Sinnoh had a battle tree too!

            *knocks on wood*

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            ‘This is the Battle Rock, which has been hollowed out and constructed to resemble the Alola Region’s Battle Tree’

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            I’d probably go cry for a while in eterna forest.

          • TCRowlet

            Sinnoh will have a Battle Tower

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            Just let me have my dream! ;_;

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            Sadly this is the truth

  • MenacingCascoon

    Sorry to ask here, but anyone have any tips for battle tree multi. My teammate keeps making stupid moves 😣. I can’t carry that old man on my back any more. It will break

    • TCRowlet

      Get a 2nd 3DS and multi with yourself with the team you use for Doubles. The only good multi partner was Steven Stone in ORAS.

      • MenacingCascoon

        Well you be able to fight the red and Gary and get the stamp?

        • TCRowlet

          Hopefully lol

    • MelloMori

      For Multi, get a better partner. Plain and simple. Get someone who is remotely good and build your team around them, or at least making sure it doesn’t hinder them.

    • Chaos

      Yeh, I seriously hate the AI when it comes to Multi Battles in the battle tree.

      Me: Ok he has a super effective move to take out the Fire Type, I’ll attack the other Pokémon.

      AI: Lol, No.

      • MenacingCascoon

        Mine is like that or ALWAYS z moves a Pokemon with one hp

  • Ronan Goodwin

    I feel the exact same way. This whole thing just makes people forget about how great SuMo are!

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      That’s exactly why I want stars to be real, though! SM was already an amazing game, so I’d love to see what a third version could add on!

  • Healing Fae

    I just saw a picture of Gogoat/Skiddo online and for a good like minute and a half I was like “thats a very well designed fakemon.”

          • Well you encounter it at level 20

      • The Kirby Kurusu

        This also concerns me

    • MelloMori

      Not a bad opening of pokemon, but make sure that your game is balanced for it. Either making sure that your giving the player a lot of money, or finding a way to raise catch rates on pokemon with lower catch rates to be fair for the early game.

      • You are given 10 pokeballs before you enter Route 2

        • MelloMori

          That’s not much though really. Like maybe up those to great balls since mence alone will eat through Pokeballs if someone finds one.

          • Yeah you’re probably right 😛

          • MelloMori

            Also a great balls colors do look similar to mence, so their’s an easy way to justify it. Like maybe the npc who give them mentioning that route two’s famous for the rare chance of seeing one fly by, and as such people often give balls of its colors as a means of good luck for trainers to find one.

      • Healing Fae

        I posted that like a week ago too

  • Garth St.Claire

    What’s with the whiny blogpos…uh..I mean “article”?

    That’s just modern journalism for you. But just to be clear, nobody “let” anybody “down” here.

    I didn’t let rumors of Stars “ruin” my enjoyment of Sun, why would it? Sun is an awesome game and I still have lots of fun with it (I haven’t even finished all the post game quests!)
    Why would the news that there might be a third version in the works take away from that experience? Aren’t you underestimating the capacity of people to enjoy things? Of write them off as too fragile, easily marred by some morsel of news/rumour? (bonus: Marshadow hasn’t even been release yet, so no marring possible :-P)

    In addition to that, I did not expect any news of Stars at this point, the rumours already said Stars was pushed back and Sun/Moon are still fresh so Nintendo is unlikely to reveal it at a period when it still could negatively influence Sun/Moon’s release. We might hear about it in a couple of months, or longer.

    The rumours are not at fault for what fans might make of them or any expectations that were deduced from them, but not explicitly stated.

    I don’t really see the problem here.

    • Ultron

      I think PJ just doesn’t want the “next big thing” to undermine the current one mere days after release.

    • Chaos

      I sort of agree with you. It’s only a let down if you allow yourself to become hyped with such minimal information.

      A let down would be an officially announced game being cancelled or something.

    • Ziggy Fartdust

      Like I said, everyone here are entitled crybabies.

            But hey what can you do, I guess we need some sort of entertainment in the world.

    • The Kirby Kurusu

      I admit I’m fine with no Stars info or it at all, but if you’ve seen the stuff this guy posts you’d hate him too

      • Garth St.Claire

        Sorry but I’m not sure what guy we are talking about, if you mean, the one who wrote the article on Eurogamer? I don’t really see anything wrong with the article and it doesn’t promise info for the Switch release.
        But I do agree that the last part of the article is a bit…manipulative…
        If you mean the other commenter, well the internet is full of people who just want to quarrel.

        • Ziggy Fartdust

          TBH, a lot of posts here are manipulative in one way or another.
          You get used to it.

        • The Kirby Kurusu

          I was meaning the other commenter

          • Garth St.Claire

            Ah okay, no worries.

  • Ok let’s just drop this all. He is loving every second of this. Don’t reply, no matter how witty your comment is, don’t reply. Don’t bring him up. At all.

    Unless you want to keep him coming back, don’t entertain him. Don’t reference him at all. Just pretend he doesn’t exist. Then all it is is a child screaming that he didn’t get a toy and still not getting it after screaming his little head off. Don’t validate what he says with a response

    • Ultron

      Can we feature this? Wait, that would actually take some effort from a mod

      • Don’t blame the mods, they are doing all they can. They can’t be here 24/7 after all.

        • Ultron

          I still just think we need to make more mods..I don’t see how it’d be a problem. We have some dedicated and trustworthy users who could become extra mods.

            I’m going to reach through the screen and strangle you. Can you guys stop replying? It’s making me more angry than his trolling.

          • The Kirby Kurusu

            Sorry don’t read what I read above then 😖

        • Chaos

          Don’t you use the same fallacy?
          Or does it only apply to people that don’t agree with you? Sorry I get confused sometimes.

          • Ziggy Fartdust

            When do I ever use that fallacy?

          • Chaos

            Let’s see:

            ‘If you don’t agree with me, you are PC and an SJW’.

            Does that ring a bell?

          • Ziggy Fartdust

            I just call them like I see them.

          • Chaos

            Cool…Me too.

          • Ziggy Fartdust

            You use straw men fallacies.

          • Chaos

            I learnt it from you.

      • Yu Narukami

        Speaking of facist, I want to personally thank you for giving me the idea for Impuptous and Doggiema.

        • Prima-Azuril

          YW

    • Ziggy Fartdust

      It must be so much fun being the thought police.

    • Chaos

      Personally I think if there nothing that can be done about keeping him away indefinitely may as well challenge him. Notice how he fails to reply if your smart enough with your comments.

      But yeh, you tell ’em…

      • He keeps coming back BECAUSE we challenge him. Thats what we do every single time he comments. He isn’t here for actual conversation, just to be a source of toxicity and to get people angry.

        • Chaos

          I disagree. Even if you ignore him he keeps coming back. He’s doing it for the reaction that many people give him, which involves only insults. If you challenging his way of thinking he doesn’t respond…

          • Sure, but we also ignored him for a single day. If we just never engage him then he will get bored and go somewhere else.

  • MenacingCascoon

    Battle Tree multi is impossible if my my teammate’s raikou keeps using thunderbolt then protecting allowing the opponent to heal! Another loss. I just want my stamp!

    • MenacingCascoon

      Taking auditions for new multi partner!

    • Chaos

      Wait is this the Super Multis or just the normal ones?

      • MenacingCascoon

        Super, sorry. It’s just so impossibleee

        • Chaos

          Oh I haven’t beaten any of them in Supers. I don’t really have the time. Still sitting a 45 Streak on Super Singles.

          Which partner do you use?

          • MenacingCascoon

            I recommend you choose a partner where your first pokemon is faster than there’s because then you will be taking most of the initiative, and you wont have to rely on them to attack the right one. And your partner is up to you. Just build a team around their strengths and weaknesses.

          • Chaos

            I have Wally ulocked as a decent partner, but after a couple of 20+ streaks losing due to the incompetency of the AI partner, I haven’t bothered much further.

            I only do Super Singles for the BP, when I have time

          • MenacingCascoon

            I might beat super singles recruit some good teammates then comeback to multi. I have done this so much I have 800+ BP

  • zess

    I’m at Fridays has anyone been here before? If so then how’s the food?

    • Ultron

      TGIF? It’s alright

      • zess

        Yeah

      • zess

        Gonna Order a burger and some wine.

    • Prima-Azuril

      That’s a place?

  • Ziggy Fartdust

    So is this what Pokejungle is all about? Policing other people to ensure an echo chamber?
    You people are no better than Tumblr.

  • Waiting on a remake

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      i wanna see the two npcs using the Ds to now be using the 3ds/switches

    • The singular Kuppo

      4th gen music is so nice :3

      https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=g7MRIx5K6aA

    • Prima-Azuril

      This sounds more like a Mario ending song than a Pokemon theme

    • Ziggy Fartdust

      Pokémon…before it went full SJW.

  • The Kirby Kurusu

    Sorry Starstorm and everyone else This is a long time coming

    Ziggy you saying “everyone here are entitled crybabies.
    They write blogposts about stuff no one cares about.” I say

    F*CK YOU, YOU LITTLE F*CKING C*NT!!!! If you don’t like us go bother another group that has similar interests or motives instead of starting arguments, causing headaches, and putting me in a state of pissed off mind set here. You say you fight a cause here no you don’t you know we don’t agree with you so you do it to ruin our days and you do it in spite for no reasons at all except your a dousch and feel like it!

    And you tell us you don’t even like Pokémon and you ridicule us on a site for pokemon… Why go to a fandom or blog site to talknabout your likes instead of giving us more of a reasons to punch our walls!

    So go bug some other site that agrees with you and your motives and stop giving us a hard time about our likes and dislikes!

    I still am sorry for this guys I need to get this out I’ll delete if you want me too…

    • Ultron
      • Snazzy EastGovnah

        the thing is can’t mods IP ban?

        • Ultron

          Pretty sure they have some sort of power like that.

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            this old group of bad people got IP banned once. no offense to mods, but if this is possibly he can be gone easily why cant it be done now?

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            Iirc he’s dodged even that

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            he must be using some program where he can change his IP. i guess the only thing we can do now is Ignore like Star and Ultron said till he gets bored and leaves

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            It’s gonna be hard but hopefully we can do it

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            It should be the featured comment, DO NOT REPLY OR MENTION TROLLS

          • The Kirby Kurusu

            PJ and Moving may just be away from their computers and don’t see it or worse… they agree! (JK XD That would never happen)

      • The Kirby Kurusu

        Sorry

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      because hes a troll, his reason to be here is to get reactions like this, if we just stop noticing him AND mentioning him he will get bored and leave

      • The Kirby Kurusu

        I really am sorry

    • Thanks for ignoring what we’ve been repeatedly saying for 3 days now and validating everything he said. You just gave him the best response he could’ve asked for. I swear to god if we cant just ignore him im gone for a bit.

      • The Kirby Kurusu

        I’m very sorry I’m being serious I’m deleting this now so he doesn’t get it just need a moment but I truly am sorry don’t leave us I’m done posting about him

  • -.- So for whatever reason, the game now crashes when you enter Route 2?

    • MenacingCascoon

      PRobably the salamence

      • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

        Don’t speak shit about the Salamence ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

      • No, it was fine earlier. All that I changed was I added an event that makes an NPC gives you Pokeballs and IDK how that affected anything

    • Prima-Azuril

      Gen 1, 5, 6 or 7’s?

      • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

        Her fan game

        • Prima-Azuril

          Oh

    • The Kirby Kurusu

      That’s not good sorry… And I’m sorry about what I said

  • Prima-Azuril

    The new comment button appears to be malfunctioning, it keeps saying there’s new comments above but all it does is keep spawning Kurus’s comment, it’s probably just an automatically deleted comment or just a bug.

    • The singular Kuppo

      Try refreshing

    • The Kirby Kurusu

      I did delete it I regret writing it too I may have chased off some of my best friends and I feel shame for it and probably will for quite a while I am sorry about it

      • It’s fine, just don’t do it again dont worry

        • The Kirby Kurusu

          Ok Thank you

  • Reggie (Ithsme)

    Is there any chance that someone a little more frequent here could be given mod powers? I’m not saying that our current mods are doing a bad job, don’t get the wrong impression. I think they’re doing a fantastic job but the thing is many of them only come on here like once a day or every so often, and by then the damage is already done. Just my two cents. My unwanted and probably wasted two cents. 😛

    • Prima-Azuril

      Just give it to some trusty ol’ pal and loveable know-all like @irvinap:disqus or @disqus_DD3HNtN9xO:disqus or even @PrinceFae:disqus, better yet @starstorm295:disqus.

      • Ziggy Fartdust

        Pokejungle will turn into 1984 for sure with them in charge.

      • Healing Fae

        Im here like all the time but I don’t think you’d want me to have mod powers, I basically become a b*tch when it comes to power. Although I am very good in authoritative roles because I make myself

        • The Kirby Kurusu

          Me I’m neutral and think for the community ahead of myself… at least when I’m at a role like that never had a role higher than backup or demi-leader

      • Snazzy EastGovnah

        Im always on here 24/7 anyway, even at work i have PJN opened

    • The Kirby Kurusu

      If they need help I could help moderate I’d work for free(I’m a minor who has too much money already then I need) , and I’m on everyday for a while at a time so

      PJ if you see This seek me out for the job!

      • Reggie (Ithsme)

        Yeah, just someone who’s here more as a backup.

    • Ultron

      See, this is what I’m saying.

      • Reggie (Ithsme)

        I’m glad somebody agrees, now I don’t feel as treacherous making a comment about somebody usurping power. xD

        • Ultron

          I feel you! Tbh I’m kinda harsh on the mods, but I just never really see them here during the day.

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            Gotta choose your words carefully, they hold your fate here.

        • The Kirby Kurusu

          I agree 100% with ya moderators should be more varietized

    • Healing Fae

      most of the gym leaders don’t even come here anymore tbh

      • The Kirby Kurusu

        PJ, Moving, The guy with apple chespin, and Food face guy… yup they are seldom seen

        • Healing Fae

          theres also defensive but like I never see him

  • The Kirby Kurusu

    It’s done I killed the post I made I really am sorry I should have kept my big mouth shut and just thought to myself it. I really do just want to apologize for my rash and quite stupid actions. I will try better in the future I Promise

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      You’re fine, don’t beat yourself up over it. It was with good intentions.

      • The Kirby Kurusu

        Good intentions of a bad topic I just hope it’s dead and gone now

      • The Kirby Kurusu

        and thank you this makes me feel better

        • Reggie (Ithsme)

          No worries

    • Chaos

      My advice. Never resort to outright insults and vulgar language. You have a right to react, but try to be smart with you language.

      How you say it is more important than what you say.

      • The Kirby Kurusu

        Yeah That first part I admit was my original post then I went too deep into my thoughts and pulled it out

  • Reggie (Ithsme)

    I’m really hoping that at E3 we get a new AC announced. They already have all of the HD models of the animals from the Wii U AC plaza thing.

    • Chaos

      I want AC to mean Assassin’s Creed, but I think you mean Animal Crossing…

      • Reggie (Ithsme)

        Assissin’s creed plaza for Wii U confirmed

        • Chaos

          My exact thought process.

    • Healing Fae

      Yes!!!

  • Dicie

    Hey guys,
    Sorry for the delay in getting things situated around here, but I’ve gotten rid of a certain troll permanently from our comment section. The staff here at PJN lead very different and busy lives, so I understand why some of you are vouching for a more active community moderator. We’ll be looking into that in the coming weeks for sure. Your feedback is always appreciated. 🙂

    • Prima-Azuril

      THANK YOU!

    • Healing Fae

      Dicie to the rescue

      You did YAY!!!!!!!! Victory and I understand, but if you ever need extra moderators… I am always of service

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      I am very sorry if i seemed to bash the mods saying some are barely here. I dont mean it like that I understand you guys have busy lives and such.

      • Snazzy EastGovnah

        just tired of the trolls man! If u guys need any help im always available everyday, I always keep a tab of this place open. if not ill just use the report button on those pesky trolls

        • The Victory Kurusu!

      This should be the Featured comment at the top of the page!

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      Sounds like a good plan. I can’t get mad at the mods for having lives (unlike me lol), so more division of power might work well. Thanks for taking this into consideration! 🙂

    • Ultron

      Thanks, Dicie! You da best

    • Trusk

      Hi Dicie. It’s me. I am sorry about what I did last December. I have a bit of Autism, meaning have a bit of problems understanding people’s online cues. I tried reaching you but you would not respond. I didn’t mean to cause any trouble. I have turned over a new leaf. Can you please unban my IP address please? I wish to use my computer for this site again rather than having to use only my phone. I have a friend who understands what it is like. I just wish to have another chance. Thank you.

  • The Kirby Kurusu

    To celebrate I looked up this for just the occasion

  • Prima-Azuril

    Yay I’m really thankful that the mods did it hip hip hooray! Now I won’t have to worry about him replying tome and me accidentally replying to him again! Victory is OURS!

    • The singular Kuppo

      Watch him return tomorrow with a new account like he always does

      • The Victory Kurusu!

        Then lets tip something over!

        • Snazzy EastGovnah

          We should take pokejungle and push it somewhere else!

          • The Victory Kurusu!

            But a Giant Wurmple is on the loose he’s big

  • Daedardus

    To be honest, nobody said it was due to be revealed soon. More even, common sense dictated that it would be a while before it got shown, since they still have 3DS copies of the game to sell. Blaming people for sharing information too soon all because you set up the wrong expectations yourself doesn’t help anyone.

    That said, I feel the agonising pain of rumours, but I do believe all will be revealed in March a week or two after Switch launch to garner some momentum for the console.

    • The Victory Kurusu!

      YAY! the Leaders are returning!

      • Daedardus

        I’m back. Sorry if things go haywire when any of the mods is away. I have a busy life and can’t check the site daily, sadly. We really need some sort of emergency button that if three or more people click on it it flashes a giant bat signal light to the mods or something.

        I’ll write up my thoughs on the Switch reveal in a coming post, be warned it will be a bit long. 🙂

        • “it flashes a giant bat signal light to the mods or something.”

          THE SAWADDLE SIGNAL

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            WOAH WE BOTH SAID IT LOL

          • Daedardus

            I mean, what’s wrong with poor Zubat?

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            Dae I love you for saying that! ZUBATMAN TO THE RESCUE

        • The Victory Kurusu!

          OK and if you need more leaders I’m here for you to help

        • Snazzy EastGovnah

          you do great jobs! and we should make a Sewaddle Signal for Emergency

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      THE CHOSEN ONE HAS ARRIVED

    • Garth St.Claire

      Exactly there was just information, which is a good thing, neither the info nor those that gave it are to blame for any expectations that were built upon that info.

          YAY!!!

    • MenacingCascoon

      Are you planning to tell us everything you do?

      • The Victory Kurusu!

        I assume so

      • Not everything, mostly just funny little moments and encounter rates. I can stop if you dont want me to though

        • Snazzy EastGovnah

          I love it

        • The Victory Kurusu!

          I want you to do this though I like encounters

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I just bought the Joy Con grip and a Starter Carrying Case
    CAN IT BE MARCH ALREADY

    The rest of the month and especially February is just the most useless month in the way right now,

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      Yea it sucks the joy con grip that comes with the system isnt a charging one

      • EarthenWarrior

        Don’t care I just need stuff to fill the void,
        After say two more weeks of working I’ll buy an extra pair of Joy cons just because it’s smart to have them in case those son of a bitch turds I call my siblings miraculously wants in on multiplayer stuff

        • Snazzy EastGovnah

          play the sandwich eating game with them

          • EarthenWarrior

            They barely eat

      • Daedardus

        Wel, I don’t find it too bad. You’re either charging them with the console or you are using the AC adapter for the dock itself. It sucks a bit but if it keeps costs down I’m OK with it.

        • Snazzy EastGovnah

          cant you only charge them when the console is docked tho?

          • EarthenWarrior

            I dunno i kinda need to review the tech specs….i’ve been kinda going overboard with pre-ordering accessories (but they’re all on Gift Cards so no harm no foul)

          • Daedardus

            I feel you. I think I got almost all of the possible accesories ordered. Gonna order the charging grip soon and debating whether I want coloured grips too. Ugh, I really feel like I’m letting nickel and dime myself lol 😛

          • EarthenWarrior

            Whatever the switch is gonna be good in the long run, better have all the stuff now and debt yourself now instead of later when the getting is good

          • Daedardus

            I assume so since the Switch has a 4310 mAh battery while the Joy-Con use a 510 mAh one. Charging them from the main battery would take up 33% of the Switches battery considering the efficiency of charging.

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            hm i got the charging grip just in case tho

          • Daedardus

            I’m getting it because it’s a second grip for my extra pair of JCs, and then I can also charge both pairs at the same time if needed.

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            This console has so many accessories lol

          • Daedardus

            AND THEY’RE EXPENSIVE ON TOP OF THAT TOO :S

    Am I the only one who is really excited for ARMS? it looks like a fun fighting game and I’ve heard good things about it from people who actually got to play it

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      I can’t wait to play, but I hope there’s enough content to warrant a 60 dollar purchase.

      • Snazzy EastGovnah

        Its gonna be the splatoon of fighting games im gonna guess lol

        • Reggie (Ithsme)

          That’d be great but I just don’t see much content there yet

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            Well its just a demo lol. They gonna show more later on

  • It is so fun trying to find one specific trainer in the list of every trainer in the game including some that aren’t even in the game is really fun >.>

    • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

      Much fun
      Very cry

  • Daedardus

    Currently debating whether I want to choose the Grey Switch SKU and buy the Red/Blue Joy-Con pack alongside, or if I choose the Blue/Red Switch SKU and then buy the grey JCs as extras or just the Red/Blue ones so I have both colours in left and right. I don’t know what I like more, blue on the right or blue on the left. And I think having grey as an option is better if you want to stay low profile, and I’m not buying three pairs of Joy-Cons at launch :P.

        Inb4 its just the word switch 500 times

    • Healing Fae

      You should get the Red/blue one

  • MenacingCascoon

    So is battling here on SM 6v6 or Battle Royale a thing or should I just not try?

    • MenacingCascoon

      Yea didn’t think so

    • SpectralSeraph

      I’d be up for it if I had Magnezone ready….

  • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

    So today’s been a good day. Comp went well, troll got banned, and peeps seem relatively happy here

    • It really has. I’m also getting alot of progress on Rad Red and I’m going to play through another chapter of Paper Mario in a bit. maybe finish a world in Super Mario World

          But then you can’t go outside to have fun :/

          • SpectralSeraph

            What is there fun to do outside? Get bitten by mosquitos? Walk two inches before an overprotective parent calls you back?

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            Enjoy the fresh air, the freedom to just walk places and see stuff, talk in relative privacy with friends without risking it digitally

            Outdoors is bae, can’t wait till the BS weather stops and me and my mates can go out again

          • SpectralSeraph

            Too bad I’m not allowed outside the house because, American suburb

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            I thought suburbs were notorious for how uneventful they are

          • SpectralSeraph

            They are…. I can’t do shit because there’s nothing TO do
            And having overprotective parents doesn’t help either

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            Oh God, that must suck. I kinda live in one of my city’s deprived areas (its more of a weird mix of normal middle class families who earn decently, and a bunch of druggies and alchies who kinda drag the rest of us down) but even then there’s still the beach or the forest to just take a nice stroll in

            Me and my mates will also just walk/talk and hold movie and game nights and stuff to alleviate the boringness too

          • SpectralSeraph

            (druggies suck..)
            Lucky! *Pouty face*

          • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

            Eh, we do what we do to pass time

            But I can agree so much, honesty can’t go out without seeing one and I’m torn between disgust and wanting to help them :/

    • zess

      Well you’ll be happy to know a certain troll was finally dealt with. A truly great day for us all!

      • SpectralSeraph

        Oh cool!

  • Healing Fae

    I have something to say for all the people out there that say they want to buy an extra coloured joycon and make them all blue or all red. You know you cant do that right? Like the left and right side work on their own sure but you still have a designated left and right, and not all buttons are present on both. So unless they make ones that you can buy that have the other side in the same colour. You’re stuck with blue and red together.

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      but arent they making Neon blue and Neon Red separately not bundled with the console tho

      • Healing Fae

        yeah, but thats what I mean, you would have to buy them separately. So you’re better off getting the grey with the console if you want to have matching sides. Otherwise you’ll end up with like 3 red and 1 blue or vice versa

  • SpectralSeraph

    I had the longest battle of my life…..
    Playing a Rom hack called Order and Chaos
    I decided the fire starter (A scorpion) was really cool
    Basically need to grind to level 20 on level 3’s to get past the first area
    Got sick of the shit and used rare candies
    Saw other bullshit
    Added Walk through Walls on to avoid said bullshit
    Game gives no indication on direction, walks into area with level 40s vs my level 20 starter
    Begins to break the game trying to figure out what to do
    6th gym is a Koga’s gym clone that doesn’t properly work, hence a half an hour on the damn puzzle… in and out
    Game breaks from this point onward
    Forced to restart
    Hacks in the badges so I can actually story and skip that gym
    Game breaks and becomes unplayable

    Please… to you rom hackers out there…. please test your game and not release a total shit crockpit like this…

    • Jesus christ that sounds awful

      • SpectralSeraph

        Here’s what really sucks, some of the fakemon designs were great. There was a space snail on goomy levels of cute. And best of all, they added ANTI HACKING FEATURES TO A GAME LIKE THIS
        Like seriously, everything broke at once…. I tried to glitch it into working but seriously…. This wouldn’t have been a problem if a working pokedex to locate pokemon and proper grinding were actually allowed

    • Golden_Monferno

      Good lord I’m sorry you had to go through all that

      • SpectralSeraph

        Yeah….
        Worst of all… I don’t exactly have self control…. take a wild guess what happened once I learned there was a ghost fighting type halfway across the region…
        No seriously, gym six was so bad that I tried to spawn a battle pokemon in (Mewtwo) to kill my team just so I could get out

        • Golden_Monferno

          That must’ve been so rough…
          And the fact that you had Mewtwo kill you to let yourself out as well

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh… I wish… the Mewtwo didn’t even show up

          • Golden_Monferno

            I found the hack on the Pokecommunity forums for roms, and I’ve seen that saving was an issue, and one person got very pissed off according to its comments.

          • SpectralSeraph

            Oh, yeah. You can’t open the game after saving… at least for me..
            I had to use save states

  • Ultron

    Sorry if I was rude to you, mods. I was letting my frustration get the best of me. Thanks for getting rid of the troll!

    gonna be lit fam 👌

    • Ultron

      I’m excited for each day to be one day closer to trump leaving office! Also excited for marvel movies and Star wars episode 8

      • Golden_Monferno

        Spiderman: Homecoming is going to be amazing. The trailer for it has me super hyped

        • Ultron

          The part where he tries to hug Tony is hilarious

            “It’s not a hug, I’m just grabbing the door for you. Alright… Good luck out there.”

  • omg there are 19 different names for the characters if you don’t enter anything in Fire Red/Leaf green o.o

    • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

      Like actual names or random sequences?

      • Actual names.

    Pokedex Entry: A pokemon traditionally owned by the high class that enjoys the art of battle. It tends to look down on pokemon or people which it sees as a lower class. It is very picky in everything it does, ranging from its diet to the very battle style it has. The battle style it works with is specific but specialized. Under their cold hearted exterior, they would risk death in order to protect a trainer who treats it nicely enough.

    Elitist: This Pokemon chooses to only able to use moves of its own type. Moves of its own type do 2.25x their normal damage. Super effective moves it uses do 3.0x their normal damage

    “Filthy peasants”

    • Golden_Monferno

      It would pain me to fight this thing in game, like its a Flying/Fighting (one of my favorite types) but the dex entry wants me to hate it so much

      • SpectralSeraph

        That’s the point XD
        It’s supposed to be hateble until it respects you
        Of course, it isn’t the only aristocratic Pokemon…. the other one is much sweeter though

        • Golden_Monferno

          Oh can’t wait to hear about the other one

  • https://www.reddit.com/r/nintendo/comments/5obbkq/nintendo_reps_might_be_right_about_botw_launching/

    tl;dr The build of BotW shown at the Switch event is essentially the E3 Wii U build of the game, meaning they’ve had months for optimizations and improvement, leading me to believe that a 1080p 60fps BotW at Switch launch is possible.

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      Am I the only one who doesn’t care about FPS that much? If people didn’t bring up FPS differences in games I probably wouldn’t be able to notice at all lol.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I’ve never once gave two donkey asses bout framerate drops or that kinda stuff
        never once

        • Reggie (Ithsme)

          I feel like even when there’s a head to head comparison I still have to outright look for it to notice.

      • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

        You won’t notice small frame drops, but sometimes the fps in BotW dips from 30 to 15 and it’s pretty noticeable.

        • Reggie (Ithsme)

          I mean like 60 to 30.

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Well, that’s not particularly noticeable imo

            30 to 15fps frame drops are brutal, but I can handle it cause I’m a blind fanboy.

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      i hope it is.

  • Golden_Monferno

    Golbats are the most annoying Pokemon ever.
    In Victory Road, I’m trying to train up my Crawdaunt, and there’s always a Golbat that spawn. And because Crawdaunt is slower, it’s very annoying to take out one, because they love to spam Bite, Wing Attack, and Confuse Ray.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Can’t you use Smoke Ball to run from them?

      • Golden_Monferno

        I could, but I also need to find some Hariyamas and Lairons to level up on

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Smoke Ball just lets you run, you’ll still find them.

          • Golden_Monferno

            I’m such an idiot, forgot about that

  • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

    45 days

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      So close yet so far

      • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

        When it comes out, it will have been over 2000 days since that E3 demo, and 1500 days since the official announcement in a direct.

        It’s not that much longer.

        • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

          These 45 days are gonna kill me on the inside, though. It’s gonna feel wayyyy than those previous 1450 days.

        • Reggie (Ithsme)

          Time flys, wow. I had no idea it was announced so long agoZ

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            *ago.

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Keep in mind the official announcement was over a year before our first teaser at E3. We just knew about development at that point.

      • Snazzy EastGovnah

        And arms still doesn’t have a release date

        • Reggie (Ithsme)

          Honestly I see mid-may.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Ughhhhhhhhhhh we’re not even done with Blanduary
        And Smeguary i could care even less about

  • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

    By the way, if that troll knows what it’s doing you haven’t gotten rid of it. Just pointing that out.

    • Dicie

      The troll’s been IP banned so that solves part of the problem…

      • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

        Well, then the question is how dedicated he is. Changing your IP isn’t that big of an issue if you know how to do so.

        • Dicie

          I think if he tries to pull anything off, we’ll be able to tell. He has a distinctive way of starting conversations here on PJN, and are usually completely irrelevant or uncalled for.

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Yeah, but again if he’s good at trolling people he’ll still be just as much of a problem. Staying hidden doesn’t matter to him if he can just change his IP 20 times over.

          • Dicie

            You make a good point, and it’ll be difficult to get of him indefinitely :/

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            It’ll be borderline impossible. Just try to keep a mod on just in case he comes back around, and make a note to remind people to ignore him. Attention is what it wants.

          • Dicie

            Absolutely, I’ll do my best 🙂

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            I will signal the Diciecopter if he returns

      • Snazzy EastGovnah

        Oh so its still a thing!

        • Dicie

          What do you mean

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            idk i just thought IP ban was like gone. he was here for awhile so i thought there was issue with IP banning lol

          • Dicie

            Oh no that’s very much still a thing but IPs can be changed relatively easily

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            ah yea i know, I learned how to do so in computer class by mistake lmao. but Ziggy didnt seem like a smart troll tho so he wont be a problem anymore i hope

          • SlightlyBlackMageYoshi

            Trolls can appear stupid. This doesn’t mean they are stupid.

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            yea ik but he would constantly do the same routine he never switched it up. like if u said “I like Lillie as a character” he would say something about being racist

      • Reggie (Ithsme)

        Correct me if I’m wrong but I could’ve sworn that he had already been IP banned, multiple times.

        • Dicie

          yeah he has

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            So in theory, an IP ban, while its the best we can do, won’t stop him long term. :/

          • Ultron

            He’d just have to find a new computer or something to come here on I think..

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            Changing your IP is possible though

          • Ultron

            Oh, so I guess that’s a thing too. Well eventually he’ll get tired of having to do that and move on. All people have to grow up at some point.

          • Reggie (Ithsme)

            You’d think lol

  • EarthenWarrior

    So my boredom makes me create, i feel a slithering hissing from below the earth, Serpentine Ghost Pokemon that dwell in haunting places hoping to sink their fangs into the realm of the living
    I want to create a Ghost/Dragon Snake Pokemon that hide in the shadows of the underground (and so happens there is a recently discovered species of the same name, pretty convenient)

    Slithysis (Slither and Ecdysis (the process of shredding) WIP
    Ghost/Dragon
    Shed Skin/Regenerator HA: Cursed Body
    The Shedding Pokemon
    a very long serpent Pokemon with bone white skin and black rings all on their spines, long streamers of grey pale translucent skin are wrapped around their neck that freely blow about, their heads have a “turban” of wrapped skin wrapped around the top of their heads with no visible eye sockets but a green neon eye light is seen through this shroud, and a pair of extremely long fangs, and a grey plated underbelly
    “Whenever a Slithysis is gravely wounded they immediately shed and discard their skin, some say that lost souls inhabit these shed skins and are reborn as a new Slithysis”
    “This Pokemon cannot smell, hear or see, it flicks its tongue the air and can taste the location of pokemon nearby”

    • Healing Fae

      umm…

      • Shiro

        trade

  • Healing Fae

    I find it hilarious that the first shiny I wanted in Sun and Moon was Morelull and yet its probably going to end up being the last fairy I get in S/M.

    Also Mimikyu is a pain to SOS chain

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      it really is, people have said to put smeargle with the box legends signature move

      • Healing Fae

        my smeargle has soak and stuff

        • Snazzy EastGovnah

          Well replace the attack move with it lol

          • Healing Fae

            but soak is the only way I can hit them and not kill them?

          • Healing Fae

            sorry I mean hit them with false swipe

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            u soak the mimikyu thats gonna SOS, then you kill the summons with moon
            a good set would be
            False swipe
            Recover
            Soak
            Attack Move of your choice

          • Healing Fae

            yeah this is the same smeargle I used for my ninetales though so it still has freeze dry and moon blast on it

    • SpectralSeraph

      Avoid it, the shiny is disgusting for it

      • Healing Fae

        excuse you, I love it

  • Idk if my team is trash or if I just suck at Overwatch…

    I think I just suck

    • Snazzy EastGovnah

      or sometimes the other team has a bastion and a torb with a reinhardt plus Zenyatta

      • Ouch lol

        • Snazzy EastGovnah

          DONT FORGET SOMBRA AND GENJI. we didnt even get the point with that defense

  • Ultron

    Have any of you read the Avatar the last airbender graphic novels?

    • No but I should

      • Ultron

        I really want to..I’m gonna put them on my list 😛

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      I think I read the first one or two, but I can’t remember as it was a while ago.

      • Ultron

        There seem to be quite a few, or you can buy some compilation ones.

        • TheWinterMonster6893

          Yeah. I’ve been meaning to read them, but I never seem to want to spend the money lol

          • Ultron

            I need to finish the books I have before I go off and start reading others.. ^-^’

    • Shiro

      never

  • Healing Fae

    its fitting that I would be hunting a ghost pokemon before I die from the uncooked chicken I accidentally ate earlier. and now we wait.

    • TheWinterMonster6893

      How do you accidentally eat raw chicken? I feel like that would be an easy thing to recognize lol

      • Healing Fae

        it seems like it would be but a series of unfortunate events lead me there.
        Long story short my oven was on the wrong setting and I had ketchup on it so I didn’t notice until I looked down at it.

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      RIP

  • Idk if I could be friends with a reaper main

    • Reggie (Ithsme)

      Idk if I could be friends with an Overwatch player.

      >.>

      • Well too bad you are *angrily hugs*

        • Reggie (Ithsme)

          YOU NEED TO ESCAPE THE TRAP THAT IS OVERWATCH

      • SpectralSeraph

        Same

      • The Victory Kurusu!

        Same here all I like is that Tracer

    • MelloMori

      You couldn’t be friends with someone who’s basically serving the same role as a tracer player?

      • Oh please, Reaper is hardly the same as Tracer

        • MelloMori

          Not really. At their core their both meant to be good offensive, close range characters who are meant to pick off enemy’s one by one by using their ability’s to sneak behind them while the rest of the team keeps the focus of everyone else. Their really more of a preference of play style more then anything, and personally I kinda prefer Reeper to Tracer in that sense. Granted I think both their character’s are pretty bland, but I’m the guy who think’s Zen is the funniest character in the game. But that might also be because I like character’s who take things 100% serious and find them funny.

          • Snazzy EastGovnah

            talking shit about one of my mains eh

          • MelloMori

            How am I talking shit about anything. All I said as that personally I don’t care for them as characters. One’s an edgelord, and the other feel’s like its some British Stereotype that I’m not familiar enough with to know for certain. But that’s me. I’m not saying somethings bad because I don’t personally care for it. Tracer’s clearly the poster girl for a reason and the lore behind reaper’s pretty great. It’s just what I find that interesting.

    • I Don’t Care Bear ʕง•ᴥ•ʔง

      But could you be friends with pro Symmetria mane

    Also today marked the Series Finale of Regular Show………..jolly good show….jolly good show….

    • I stopped watching that furry mess when they went out to space. That was the only show on cartoon network that didn’t cater to children or hipsters. smh.

    • Oh dang… I haven’t kept up with it in a long time. If I watch it will I understand what’s going on?

      • EarthenWarrior

        You’d need to watch the dome arc and the space arc to really appreciate it

    • SpectralSeraph

      I’ll watch it soon, is it worth?

      • EarthenWarrior

        I cried at the end….

    • MelloMori

      Yeah. At the very least we have Adventure time and The Amazing world of gumball for one more season. And we’ll probably see the team’s next project in a couple of years. Greatness breeds greatness, and they very rarely take breaks for long.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I hope that infinity train gets the contract
        I’m a sucker for bespectacled redheads….

        • MelloMori

          Same here. it certainly has some promise, though it’s a hard call. It can certainly pick up the adventure time crowd, though it’s a bit of a risk if it’ll be cannibalized by steven universe.

      • The Victory Kurusu!

        Everything but Gumball, Adventure Time, and SU now sucks on The CN after they have killed Pokémon from their roster and almost everygood… And replaced it with Teen Titans GO

    • Golden_Monferno

      I remembered when the first episode aired….
      Wow, time really did fly lol

  • this long ass battle http://play.pokemonshowdown.com/battle-gen7ou-518546759 He tried to sweep me but my toxapex was saying NO SIR! keep it pushing. i guess there’s a reason this thing is the most used pokemon in the game

  • MESS, why are people expecting Pokemon stars anytime soon? the game is just rumor after all and not to mention Sun and moon came out just a few months ago ( even though it feels like ages) i’m not expecting pokemon stars till next year. Get ready for pokemon drought again

    • The Victory Kurusu!

      My thoughts on the matter anywhere from Feb.-Jun. We should be seeing some info on some type of new game

    • SomeGuy

      Because the original rumor said that it was developed side by side with SuMo and regardless if it’s a sequel or third version it’ll be recycling a lot of assets. It’d make sense to launch it on Switch year one if Nintendo is serious about making it a must have console because Pokémon is a system seller. It’d make more sense that the Pokémon drought would be 2018 if 2019 is DPP remakes since they have to start from scratch remaking the Sinnoh region.

  • aww i missd the troll 🙁

    • Healing Fae

      count your blessings

    • The Victory Kurusu!

      Which one?

I’ll be sure to respond and take care of the situation as soon as possible. Hopefully this will allow you guys to gain my attention quicker and put an end to issues before they get out of hand. 🙂

    Whelp My new patch for FF14 starts today(currently 12:33 am.) so I”ll be gone for a couple days clearing content. See you Jungle Lovelies soon enough.

  • Shiro
  • Daedardus

    I finished my Switch piece but I’m looking into getting it published as a full article. Look forward to it soon!

  • Prima-Azuril

    Good morning everyone!

    • Yo

    • EarthenWarrior

      Glrrrrrrr brain busted…..
      Some kinda flying Naga frantically being chased at a collage campus

  • Tessa

    Except what they stated was their reasoning was spot on.

    For those of us who were obsessed with it and/or have decent access to funding to buy all the things, it doesn’t matter… But some people were just getting back into it.

    If you were one of those people, wouldn’t you rather know a more expensive system with a better version was coming fairly soon so you didn’t waste your money on buying the current lesser system with a lesser version?

    From what I’ve seen them say, the original article probably wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t better for consumers to know. There is no argument against that reasoning.

    Those of us who would buy them anyway are the ones who SHOULD be okay with waiting as long as necessary meaning it’s a problem with us, not the article.

    And yes, I say US because I mean me too. I have zero patience but I’m perfectly okay with waiting for the announcement.

    If anything, I’m more confused as to why they don’t just say it since it’s been leaked. The only game that has EVER moved more consoles is Mario in pure sales numbers. Keeping it a secret only stands to hurt them as the Pokémon GO fad fades away.

  • Rocky Rochford

    Well Emily Rogers started to talk about it, only to have Liam Roberton tell her no, also it’s not like they purposefully do it. Nintendo actually altered their presentation reveals. They had other games to talk about but have chose not to reveal them. Pokémon Codename Stars is not to be discussed until E3 now.

    Some companies don’t like leaks, so when they happen, these companies try to make it out like they are false. Take a look at all the previous Masuda Switch talk, he has confirmed such a title in his own way, but Nintendo are sitting on it.

    Also a switch Pokémon game was first leaked by MCV, it was said it would release in September, October.

    • PJ

      I actually don’t have much doubt about it existing; will expect it to be revealed at E3 or even maybe before. Don’t blame Nintendo for delaying it really

  • johnofthemolemen

    How are you going to complain about being mad that someone led you on with false information when you posted an article last week titled “Facts We Know About Pokemon Stars?”
