Intrepid gamers have dug deep to uncover evidence that suggests a new Nintendo Direct is likely be held this week. They have based this on the pattern which Nintendo follows when updating their site ahead of upcoming presentations.

Although Pokémon games are not usually announced at the American E3 gaming convention, they are commonly revealed during the month of May. Information on the follow-up to last year’s Pokémon Sun & Moon is highly expected before the end of the month.

This means that the next direct to come from Nintendo has a high probability of focusing on Pokémon and what’s next for the main series.

Sound the hype horn!

  • TCRowlet

    Would certainly be nice. The out of nowhere announcement of ORAS was amazing, but a direct would be hype

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    Yes please, I need something to be hyped 😀

    Also, the react faces…

    They’re quite interessante

  • TheMonster6893

    Gotta love how you didn’t make an article about this until Joe mentioned all the things announced in May hahaha Yo love him so much lol Anyway I do think a Direct is coming. Whether it’s a Pokemon Direct we’ll have to just wait and see. The way I see it we have 3 options for a new Pokemon game. The first being a kind of boring 3rd version of SM. It may be on the Switch or not, but in any event it matches the closest to Eurogamers rumor. The second option is DP remakes. I think I’d be fine with this as long as they fix the major issues with DP like the pacing, the Pokemon type distribution, etc. They do that and I’ll be down. The third option comes from all the Kanto/Johto pushing they seem to be doing with the movie. The movies usually are there to promote whatever games are coming out around that time (before or after it doesn’t matter). This time we have a movie set in Kanto that heavily features Johto legendary Pokemon. Sure Marshadow is in there, but obviously the focus is on Ho-oh. Makes you wonder, if the next game is really another Alola game then why is the focus on an entirely different region? Even if they were gonna do a Kanto journey for Ash in the movie they could still shoehorn Alola Pokemon in is left and right to tie into SM or whatever a 3rd game for them would be. Despite this the only Alola Pokemon in it that we’ve seen are Incineroar and Marshadow. It’s an eyebrow raiser lol

    • EarthenWarrior

      I mean Joe is kinda the leading authority of Pokemon news of all kinds
      He made his namesake and he does it well

      • TheMonster6893

        I mean I’ll give credit where credit is due, but Joe is also kind of a schmuck too. I think he thinks very highly of himself and often has his own head up his ass. That said again he does have a pretty great website for information lol

    • Ultron

      I’d much rather have a sequel to Sun and Moon than a third version. But I think DP remakes are next due to the walking with pokemon found in SM’s coding.

      • TheMonster6893

        Same for the sequel, but remember that the walking Pokemon feature really caught it’s stride in Johto soooooo……..lol

        • Ultron

          Yeah, but DP was the one who introduced the concept 😉 Another Kanto game is possible, but I’m not entirely sure everyone would be too thrilled. Maybe if it made Kanto and Johto more interesting and told a new story I’d be down.

        • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

          but Amity Square was the test for walking with pokemon

          • TheMonster6893

            Yeah, but it only allowed “cute” Pokemon. So unless they open it up to other Pokemon it won’t make any sense to have ALL of the Pokemon as walkers

          • Ultron

            They can just have all pokemon available to walk in the overworld, and then only cute ones in Amity Square. There are items and stuff in there

    • Shemar Corbin

      My chose is between DP remake and Kanto Sequel

    • PJ

      Actually we were keeping eyes on NeoGAF thread and I just tied in Joe’s tweets because they fit

      • TheMonster6893

        I figured. Was just poking fun. You and Joe have such an odd relationship hahaha

    • Actually I told Paul about this before Joe tweeted. Paul just held off posting because no one in the States would have been awake.

      😉

  • ShinyXatu

    Molto interessante! Honestly I’m not sure if this is evidence, but with the “stars” event coming up very soon, I’d say it will happen.

  • Hey, I actually changed my name for once along with my pfp for like the 500th time.

    • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

      oh hai you must be new here 😉

    • ShinyXatu

      Learn to live like me…my identity is as solid as steel. 😛

      • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

        IS MY IDENTITY SOLID AS STEEL YET

  • ShinyXatu

    Oh, looks like there IS actual evidence besides what Joe Merrick said (which is actually a good point, honestly). This is the Nintendo Direct page before:

    And after:
    http://i.imgur.com/wrkPlEu.png

    • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

      so wait the after image is the blank spot right?

      • TheMonster6893

        Yeah they shifted the directs around and removed the Miitopia direct

    • I feel we should make it clear that Joe tweeting was NOT what we considered evidence. There’s a link in the first sentence, that’s the evidence.

  • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

    what if the pokemon in the image for Look upon the stars are getting megas or regional forms in the new games (yes ik there is some pokemon who have megas and legends can’t get regional variants )

      also ik there is also ALola pokemon but its just quick theory nothing in-depth

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I hope, I’ve wanting Mega Chandelure since the beginning of time

    • EarthenWarrior

      your toolbar looks desolent

      • It’s my school’s.They give these us for the year.

        • EarthenWarrior

          NRYAGHHH I WAS ONE GENERATION AHEAD BEFORE MY SCHOOL GAVE THEM TO EVERYONE

    • ShinyXatu

      Speed weed?

      • EarthenWarrior

        i dunno my brother uses Insta-gram

        • ShinyXatu

          Apparently Speed Weed is a co-producer of TV shows…I wasn’t expecting that.

  • EarthenWarrior

    i hope we get some news soon
    i for one have been feeling like shit for the last 3 days with every orifice from the neck up and need some hype to spark my immune system

    • TheMonster6893

      Well if people are right in their speculation we should have a direct of some kind (Pokemon or no) by Wednesday. Maybe Thursday at the very latest.

  • Blitzin’ Arcanine

    If this is right, it will be a week of so much joyful tears from me.

  • ShinyXatu

    With all this news about the New 2DS XL and Nintendo keeping up their 3DS output until 2018, I’m really starting to doubt that Stars will be on Switch. But…what if they did a dual release? Pokémon Earth on New 3DS and Pokémon Stars on Switch?

    • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

      I already said this, but i disagree with it being two different versions. we are gonna get one version (stars) and its gonna be a dual release New 3ds and Switch like Fire Emblem warriors is doing

    • Blitzin’ Arcanine

      I mean they like to switch up their formula a lot (like with the BW sequels), so its not too out there.

      • ShinyXatu

        They also did it with Mystery Dungeon many years ago. In this case I guess we’re dealing with a much bigger leap than GBA to DS, but technically these are both handhelds!

      • Shemar Corbin

        Yeah we’ll probably see a pokemon game for Switch in Gen 8

    • Ultron

      Seems like a large amount of work for them, but I wouldn’t mind it.

      • ShinyXatu

        You’re definitely right, but it’s the only logical way I can see them satisfying the GameXplain rumors and also maintaining 3DS support. It could very easily be just 3DS after all, though.

        • Ultron

          It would certainly be epic! I might be slightly let down if the game is just for 3DS, because I’m dying to see how pokemon would translate to the Switch..but I guess it’s slightly more likely that this year at least we’ll get a pokemon title on the 3DS

    • MelloMori

      That honestly sounds much harder then it’d be worth. At that point you need to make sure that the two devices can communicate with one another in person, which I have no idea if they can right now. That also assumes that they can easily raise the quality of the games visuals and models to that of the switch, which you can’t really, and a number of other problems.

      But there’s nothing wrong with dreaming big. Just don’t let your dreams cloud logic.

    • Daedardus

      They need Stars more to sell Switch hardware rather than selling software copies. By making it an exclusive they could possible improve the momentum for Switch. If people want Pokémon on 3DS, there’s like 20 games to choose from.

      • ShinyXatu

        The strange thing is, didn’t Game Freak say they were only going to watch the Switch for now? They must have been talking about Gen 8 right?

        • Ultron

          Yeah, perhaps they’re waiting to finish out Gen 7 on the 3DS before moving it to the Switch for 8?

    • Shemar Corbin

      I think they’ll have to pull “Stars” back till 2018, because I doubt they’ll have for Switch already, especially GF a re hiring programmers for Switch

  • Shemar Corbin

    What do you think they’ll announce this week?
    A. Kanto Sequel
    B. Sinnoh Remake
    C. Pokemon “Stars”
    D. None of the above

    • Ultron

      B. Sinnoh Remake for 3DS

      And I think we’ll get a pokemon spinoff game for the Switch before we get a main series game, which will inevitably happen I think.

    • B.

    • TheMonster6893

      Hoping for A (As long as it brings the kind of story development that SM had) and expecting C….lol

  • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

    Welp Fire emblem devs stated Echoes is the last main series game for the 3ds, now i hope Pokemon transitions over the Switch

    • Ultron

      Well, this is good news I suppose…seems like the phasing out of the 3DS has already begun

      • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

        the only big winter game we know for the 3ds is Kirby. the other games are more summer release, Then fire emblem warriors in the falls, pretty small line up for 3ds unless e3 has alot of 3ds games planned

        • Ultron

          -patiently waits for Kirby to come to the Switch-

          E3 will really tell us what to expect from the future of the 3DS. I imagine the line up will be rather scarce. The WiiU was basically dead last year at E3, so we’ll have to see how the 3DS handles the new competition.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Looks like the Switch is replacing the 3ds •_•

      • Ultron

        I bet it’ll be more gradual than the WiiU’s sudden death xD

        They just released the new 2DS, so I don’t think they’ll pull the plug on it so soon. I’d say it’ll at least last till next holiday season.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Why does everyone think Stars or whatever is gonna be on the Switch?
    that means no backwards compatibility and i know for a fact they’re gonna keep Pokemon games on the main handheld strictly

    • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

      didn’t the Ds drop backwards compatibility after the DS Lite?

    • Ultron

      Who says Pokebank can’t be used with the Switch..? And you don’t know that for a fact, no one does.

      • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

        only gamefreak

      • EarthenWarrior

        i remember from an interview

        • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

          But peoples opinions do change tho

          • EarthenWarrior

            not marketing
            i’m just going with Gamefreak’s patterns, its a possibility but honestly pokemon is like the Handheld’s bread and butter

          • Ultron

            I just don’t think it’s this year. I think that’s too soon.

          • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

            Gamefreak has changed before

          • EarthenWarrior

            only time will tell
            me i’m leaning towards DS

          • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

            but earthen the 3ds is the system we are arguing about 😉

          • EarthenWarrior

            I hate you…..i truly do

        • Ultron

          Saying one thing and doing another is entirely different. Evidence for Switch move in the not-too-distant future:
          1) SM pushed boundaries for Pokemon on 3DS.
          2) Gamefreak hiring people who can work with Switch. GF doesn’t do the spin off games, and their other titles are basically hilariously non-existent, so I think this is really all the evidence you need
          3) If Nintendo really is releasing just the handheld version of the Switch, that completely undermines the 3DS

          • EarthenWarrior

            what does 1 and 3 have to do with anything especially the 3rd the handheld switch is beyond stupid

          • Ultron

            Well point 1 means that the 3DS can’t handle pokemon for too much longer unless they don’t plan on expanding upon the franchise graphically.

            Point 3, if true, would be a huge red flag for the death of the 3DS.

          • EarthenWarrior

            exactly the freaking 3DS needs to exist, and Pokemon is its lifeblood
            giving a main-series Pokemon to the Switch means less big sellers

          • Ultron

            Then they can just move everything to the Switch. Fire Emblem is already going there. Kirby and Animal Crossing are bound to follow

          • EarthenWarrior

            of course they are
            but what of the 3DS?

          • Ultron

            Idk, it can’t last forever. It’s already had a 6 year run, that’s pretty good for a console. And I don’t see it dying so soon, so add 1.5 – 2 more years for the system.

          • EarthenWarrior

            ergo a strong possibility Pokemon staying on it for a while

          • Ultron

            At least this next title is basically guaranteed for the 3DS

          • MelloMori

            Fire Emblem’s kind of a bad thing to compare too since it’s always jumped around whether its a home console or handheld game. It usually just goes to which ever device they feel like putting it on, even if its objectively a bad choice, like putting a game on the SNES when the N64 was already out and already showing its age. In this case Nintendo hasn’t announced anything new from the tech side(yet) and moving to the switch is the logical thing to do for them to move the series forward, and probably for the worse since the last attempts of putting the game on a home console were less then good.

          • Ultron

            That’s true, but they still have made quite a few titles for the 3DS for it!

          • MelloMori

            True, but that’s just because of common sense. Develop for the device that has roughly 50-60 million units sold, or the failure of a home console. It just made sense. And even then they had been making games for the DS before awakening so they were more familiar with the format, and Awakening was the game that they were told that if it sold poorly, the series was going to be canceled and thus probably had a small budget to begin with(which probably explains why the 3D models didn’t have feet. Too expensive to make).

          • Ultron

            Geez, that’s pretty harsh. But you’re right, the 3DS does have a lot of units sold. Axing it won’t be so easy, nor would it be smart to do it suddenly. A gradual phase out is what we might see.

          • MelloMori

            While I do see some validity in your first two points, though could say that those points are a bit conjecture, I have an issue with the third. Its highly unlikely that Nintendo would release a handheld version of the switch since the things meant to be a home console first and there’s no real way of getting around it. Really the only way to effectively make a handheld switch would be to just not give it a dock, and that really wouldn’t lower the price in any real way. The joycons still have to be detachable, the screen can’t really get any smaller since most of the switches size is due to its battery, and that’s even ignoring that the switch is kinda horrible as a handheld from a dev perspective, which I’d argue are the one’s you have to win over over the consumers.

          • Ultron

            Yeah, I’m just going on that rumor. You make some good points.

    • Shemar Corbin

      Eurogamer stated the “Stars is switch exclusive”

    • Daedardus

      They didn’t want Pokémon on console because it would interfere with ‘going out in the world and trade and battle, showing everyone what you’ve got’. That problem is mostly solved with the Switch.

      • Daedardus

        Also, Switch is Nintendo their only new console/handheld going forward. They’re supporting 3DS for now because it sells and is cheap to make/develop for. There won’t be a seperate handheld in the near future unless Switch flops. No Pokémon on Switch would mean no Pokémon, period.

        • Ultron

          Yeah I can’t see them releasing a direct successor for the 3DS. Otherwise, what was the point of the Switch, you know? Consolidating their consoles is a good idea, imo, because they dominate the handheld market and it would give that boost to their consoles. And they’d have to develop for less systems.

    • TCRowlet

      I have a feeling the next Pokemon game will be on the 3DS, but the series will eventually come to the Switch.

      • EarthenWarrior

        eventually, but i still have the gut feeling that they won’t give it to the switch until a long while since they’re not just gonna drop the 3DS as a source of revenue, because as i said that Pokemon is the Handheld’s biggest seller

        • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

          but if the switch gets Pokemon wouldn’t that be a System Seller and boost sales by alot

          • MelloMori

            Not necessarily. Remember that handhelds tend to be quite cheap and a great gate way for kids into gaming, or those with a smaller budget. If pokemon were to jump to the switch we have to assume that the game would be a standard home console game costing $60, and with the switch being $300; that creates a huge barrier to entry that a lot of people might not be willing to buy into. It would certainly help drive the demand up for the console more, which is already very high, but it’s very likely that Pokemon in turn could lose millions of sales due to this higher price. Those millions might also be a drop in a bucket given pokemon pretty much always sells about 10 million+ units, so even half as many is still very good, but it also sends a bad message to investors, seeing less units sold which could be seen as a sign that pokemon is dying and its time to start pulling out before they lose any more money.

            And all of that is ignoring that Nintendo’s made it pretty clear that they know that the 3DS and Switch have two completely different markets and I’d be willing to bet probably are working on some device that will be the successor to the 3DS simply because they know that those two markets can never fully merge, since the 3DS does appeal to people on a budget and the switch really can’t.

    • Crystal was GBC exclusive. Plus I’m sure they could pull some magic to get Switch consoles to trade with 3DS. If not, Pokebank exists

      • EarthenWarrior

        ehhh i’m thinking from a marketing standpoint

        • It’s going to sell Switches like crazy. Pokemon is a system seller

          • ShinyXatu

            This holiday is going to be nuts if they release Pokémon Stars and Mario Odyssey in the same month. Then there’s also the chance of Smash Bros. and other unannounced games coming as well before 2018. Things are looking up!

          • Ultron

            I really hope they bring Smash to the Switch or at least eventually get a new one out..it would make me feel less bad about selling my WiiU to get a Switch

          • EarthenWarrior

            you’re thinking the wrong way
            aside from Pokemon why else do people break down doors to put on the 3DS

          • So people start going to the Switch? The 3DS is dead. The new 3DS xl is for those young children who aren’t trusted with a Switch. It’s basically the Game Boy Mini or the Wii Mini.

          • TCRowlet

            Don’t say the 3DS is dead. Possible Superstar Saga remake/remaster whatever might be coming to it D: I need it!

          • EarthenWarrior

            …….i really hope it doesn’t use the Dream Team graphics

          • TCRowlet

            I don’t like the 3DS Mario and Luigi games. They lost their touch

          • I don’t understand why they used 3d models instead of handdrawn sprites

          • ShinyXatu

            I actually don’t mind those, but I’d say it’s almost guaranteed.

      • Ultron

        The DS could communicate with the Wii
        The 3DS could communicate with the Wii U

        Seems likely to me

        • ShinyXatu

          It’s basically guaranteed, even without the strong rumors which indicate it’s on the way. They did say “within the first year”, so it could still come next February or something.

          • Ultron

            I like your forward thinking, Xatu

          • ShinyXatu

            I swear, it was just a happy coincidence that I chose Xatu on this site, it really matches my ways of thinking too well.

  • Gikie

    Time for the big…SWITCH

  • TCRowlet

    It would be funny if Diamond and Pearl got remakes on the Switch. They were the first Pokemon games to use 2 screens, and a switch to the Switch would mean they would then be on 1 screen. RIP Poketch?

    • Ultron

      I wouldn’t necessarily be mad. The poketch was useful, but it’s not necessarily important for it to be displayed at all times. As long as we could pull it up that’d be fine with me.

    • Daedardus

      Pokétch could still be a tap on the screen away. And maybe a split screen mode, the screen is wide enough.

      • EarthenWarrior

        or just keep it on the 3DS

        • Daedardus

          Why would they though? There’s nothing to gain from releasing it on 3DS in 2018/2019.

          • MenacingCascoon

            More people have 3ds than switches.

          • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

            Well the 3ds is also a older piece of a hardware when the switch is only 2 months old?

          • EarthenWarrior

            and how many are they generally on the shelves compared to the 3DS or stupid 2DS

          • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

            all the gamestops around me haven’t had a 3ds in stock since christmas?

          • EarthenWarrior

            exactly

          • Ultron

            Pokemon can change that

          • MenacingCascoon

            Exactly. Thats why I think it could be for switch and 3ds but switch has more features. BAsically like smash 4. They havent had console pokemon since gen 4 AND Pokemon promotes things like crazy. I think it could make it on the switch

          • Ultron

            It’s possible. I don’t see it happening till next year though.

          • Daedardus

            Yeah, but the point is selling people Switches, thus increasing software sales of other franchises that wouldn’t do that well otherwise. They need to play the long game. I mean, they could release it on the DS too, or Sony could release Uncharted 5 on PS2, those all sold more.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Exactly. I was just playing devil’s advocate. I definitely can believe if it goes on the switch.

          • EarthenWarrior

            because its still a good handheld,
            and not everyone has a freaking switch yet

          • Ultron

            You do though, so why are you even mad lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            because i firmly believe that Pokemon will stay on handheld

          • Daedardus

            But the Switch is a handheld?

          • EarthenWarrior

            more home console console with the option to be handheld
            but i stand by my beliefs

          • Ultron

            Eh, it’s really half and half. That’s the point of it. Even in the name.

          • EarthenWarrior

            well unlike you guys i’m thinking about the 3DS’s lifespan
            how Pokemon is just the perfect thing to have it on
            i mean yes the switch has a lot to work with but not a lot of people have switches and also how often do people even carry them on their person during their daily lives (me i carry my 3DS everywhere i go)
            and not for nothing they just pumped out the 2DS XL and still have games coming to the switch so the 3DS is definitely not dead yet

          • Ultron

            I think we’re basically on the same page. I just think the 3DS eventually will give way to the Switch, but not this year and not till at least the end of next year. It still has some life in it

          • Ultron

            Well…the switch IS technically a handheld. Just a bit bigger and more expensive

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            No one has a switch yet but they might have it in 2018/2019

          • I have a new thing
            I have a thing everyone loves
            I put the thing on the new thing
            Everyone buys the new thing.

            I bought a DS literally just to play a Club Penguin secret agent game

          • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

            same fam

          • Ultron

            Zhu Li, do the thing!

            (Tbh I always thought her name was Ju Li so I’m shook rn)

          • Yeah the pronunciation is weird

          • Daedardus

            That’s Chinese pronunciation though, you thought (somewhat) correctly in an English frame but that’s how it’s actually written.

          • Ultron

            Learn somethin’ new everyday

          • Daedardus

            Yeah, but is it bad that you don’t have Switch yet? I feel like people have a huge fear of missing out, while nobody is obliged to buy a game and system they can’t afford.

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        But watch if you’re playing on TV?

        • Daedardus

          Pointer controls.

    • Make it like the Sheikah Slate in Zelda

      • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

        SO WE CAN TAKE SELFIES 😛

    • Shemar Corbin

      I would prefer it being on 3ds

  • MenacingCascoon

    Puhlease no new game is gonna be announced this week. Basing things off of patterns is crazy. Not only that Im sure Pokemon goes out of its way to break patterns.

    • Not really, they’ve aways liked to announce games then tell us nothing for months

  • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

    so reading the life span of the DS
    2004-2011 7 years (DS DS LITE, DSi, DSi XL)
    3ds rn i think is 6 years old (3DS,3DS XL,2DS,N3DS,N3DSXL,N2DSXL)
    I say the N2DSXL is the Wii Mini of the 3ds and they are trying to push out a bit more sales of the 3ds family for this fiscal year.

    • ShinyXatu

      The DS lasted until 2012 at least, considering B2/W2 came to it that year, so there is always a chance of the 3DS lasting into 2019. But I really doubt it, by that point the Switch will have tons of games and become the preferred console.

      • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

        I was going based off when a successor was release more then when games were stopped being developed. but you make a good point

        • ShinyXatu

          Right, I guess I was just pointing out the overlap which exists between any two generations. You’re totally right about the New 2DS XL being the last push before focusing solely on Switch (possibly). They could also reveal a brand new handheld at E3 2019 to compete with their own Switch, because that’s a Nintendo thing to do!

      • Daedardus

        BW2 were also the worst selling main games if you account for the fact that there are two games instead of one.

  • Honestly it could go both ways. If Stars is an Alola sequel then it will probably stay on 3DS but if its just a third version then I see no reason why they wouldn’t put it on Switch. All those indie game devs talked about how easy it is to develop for the thing so GF could get a handle on it quickly

  • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

    so im guessing this is Pokejungle: Civil war?

    • Daedardus

      Not long until Tauros gets hold of all the Megastones

      • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

        but hes my friend

        • So was I

          • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

            STAR I THOUGHT YOU BE ON OUR SIDE

          • wait am I? I just wanted to finish the line lol.

          • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

            Oh ok fair enough

    • Pokemon Gold and Civil

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      What’s happening!?

      • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

        People think Pokemon should be on the switch while others think it should stay on the 3ds

        • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

          Oh

  • TCRowlet

    3DS or Switch, at the end of the day I just want another 2 region Pokemon game ._.

    • You sure as hell wont get that on 3DS

      • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

        Well New 3ds ;P

      • TCRowlet

        The 3DS Pokemon games have had barebones content in exchange for 3D models and graphics. Is that GameFreak incompetence or system limitations?

        • Game Freak incompetence. That’s why Sun and Moon’s story is miles better than whatever X and Y had

          • EarthenWarrior

            (yet they couldn’t even incorporate the Ultra Beasts better, y’all are just blinded by Lillie’s mommy issues)

          • Sorry but Lillie’s mommy issues is still the best plot in a Pokemon game. (Well Black and White’s was better but no one cared other than me apparently)

          • EarthenWarrior

            Excuse me?
            I think Black and White was the best one yet

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            She just said black and whites were better

          • Ultron

            The way I see it, S/M had good characters to carry the so-so story, while X&Y had neither decent characters nor story to make it good.

          • TCRowlet

            XY had good characters. They just weren’t fleshed out. AZ had such potential. Sycamore is awesome, his theme is so french. Diantha is trash, but Lysandre was great.

          • Ultron

            Everyone felt like robots to me. The flare scientists weren’t given much personality outside the fat guy (xerosic or something). Sycamore was good, but kinda forgettable as well. He doesn’t do much other than give you Kanto starters. Lysandre was alright, but still a bit of a knock off Cyrus. He needed more to do. We only encountered him like twice and both of our battles with him are in the HQ right before his supposed death. Diantha was absolute trash, which is a shame because I like her design, her champ room, and her theme. AZ had potential too, but they really beat around the bush with him and hardly answered anything about him.

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Can we point out how Lysander had this huge goal and intended that the button only be pressed if you chose the right one?

          • Ultron

            Yeah he was an idiot

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Also, you fight him THREE TIMES AT THE END OF THE FLARE ARK ONE AFTER THE OTHER

    • Ultron

      I’ll settle for a game with a shit ton of post content like B2W2. Also Battle Frontier, that’s a whole post game in and of itself

      • TCRowlet

        Please…Sun and Moon died so quick for me.

        • Ultron

          Honestly..I’m burnt out on breeding and there’s literally nothing else to do unless you like repetitive battles.

          • Bring back contests.
            Sinnoh contests
            They had that awesome dancing minigame
            Bring back Sinnoh

          • TCRowlet

            I hope contests in the Sinnoh remakes can be done online…why did ORAS not allow that?

          • MenacingCascoon

            Or We’ve had the Battle Tower remix for 10 years, WHY have they STILL not added an online function to play with friends online

          • Ultron

            I totally forgot about the dancing part! I wish they were just completely redone. I like the idea of contests, I just hate the format. It basically all depends on chance rather than skill.

    • MenacingCascoon

      I know Ive said this a million times, but if pokemon does happen to be on the switch, it better have a LOT of content. There’s no reason for it to have same or less content than HGSS or SM. It NEEDS to have more. and if just the same old story and BAttle Tower Remix I will be beyond angry

      • TCRowlet

        So will I.

      • It’s also basically a port of Sun and Moon so they have plenty of time to add that stuff in. Thats why 3rd versions always have the most content and why Gen 6 is the worst one

        • MenacingCascoon

          I dont just want little extra though. I want Complete new and amazing story. Maybe even a sequel like BW2. I want Challenge mode. I want cutscenes everywhere. I want amazing cutscenes! I want 2nd region. I want BAttle Frontier. The amount of stuff BoTw can do, GF can be on the same level (for a pokemon game)

          • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

            So every 2 steps triggers a cutscene like the first island in SuMo

          • TCRowlet

            Why are Gym Leader rematches still not a staple in the series?! Even in Sun and Moon, I want to re-battle all the trial captains as many times as I want.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Seriously! Can we please get places where we can battle high leveled trainers. Specifically Gym leader rematches. It makes no sense that it’s basically a guessing game. It needs to just stay back. Who doesnt love hearing the Gym theme more times than 8 (or just 4 in SM).

          • TCRowlet

            That’s the main reason I love Gym rematches, to hear the theme again! Yeah we can now hear it when we battle people online, but I still like getting to re-battle the main characters. This really bothered me in ORAS.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Me too! And I like seeing the gym leaders team grow, it just feels so nice. It’s like they are actually doing stuff in their free time rather than standing in one place

          • Ultron

            That amount of content might be a bit much. Zelda titles release like every 5 years so they have time to do a lot of content, while pokemon is either annually or biannually, and should stay as such. There’s still no excuse for no content like XY and S/M have though.

          • I was with you until cutscenes. Nah fam they need a button to skip cutscenes

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            I’m ok with cutscenes as long as they’re interesting and not boring like the ones in ORAS

          • MenacingCascoon

            Lol I love cutscenes but I guess a skip button would be nice. Knowing me I would accidentally skip of them and cry.

      • TCRowlet

        The most content in the Sun and Moon post-game is the 40 minute ending after beating the Champion.

  • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

    Gee, this was late

  • ShinyXatu

    I just want to point out how weird it is that we’re actually talking about 2018/2019/2020 these days because it’s actually in our near future. I can still picture myself back in 2010 trying to imagine what Nintendo of 2020 would look like. Honestly, this is better than I could have imagined.

    • Ultron

      I don’t think anyone could have imagined they’d make a portable home console

      • ShinyXatu

        I also couldn’t have predicted that Nintendo would make it through the Wii U era AND completely reinvent themselves in the course of half a decade. It will look awesome in the history books.

        • Ultron

          Now they just need more third party support!

          • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

            Give us marvel vs capcom >:(

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Eyyy my boy

        • If the Wii U launched with all the games from 2013 and 2014 at launch the Wii U would’ve probably done amazing

  • So… how much is Switch online going to cost?

    • TCRowlet

      And will Pokemon be exempt from it?

      • MenacingCascoon

        Probably not

      • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

        Hey maybe it will stop the many GTS problems

    • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

      Most likely will find out at e3 but probably not alot

    • MelloMori

      I don’t think we have hard numbers yet, but I think the ball park is something around $20-30 USD Annually. So not too bad. Though this is Nintendo who do like screwing over everyone outside of Japan.

      • Daedardus

        More like economics screwing everyone over with the exchange rate of the past few years.

  • Me: *laughs*
    My little brother downstairs: “SHUT UP”

    • EarthenWarrior

      How incredibly stupid?

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        VERY stupid
        Possibly unbalanced
        But really weird

      Why dont we do a battle royale

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        I would but this idea is beautiful

      1:15

      • MenacingCascoon

        Wow…. That song spoke english. Nice.
        Oh and the pikachu getting kidnapped thats disturbing

        • “PRESIDENT PIKACHU HAS BEEN SHOT”

        • TheMonster6893

          The suit was deflating so they had to rush to get it off stage. I will say tho that having all those guys swarm the Pikachu was a bit much. They could have easily had the Pika start to walk off and then just had a couple of guys help them out. Instead they chose the most distracting way possible and had like 10 guys rush the stage. lol

          • That’s the funniest part to me. The only way they could’ve handled it worse was if they stopped the whole show to get him offstage

      • Pharap

      At first I was thinking ‘Korean songs are weird’, then I realised ‘dear god that’s supposed to be English’.

  • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

    My grand idea: Everyone who comes on showdown picks their team… in a special way
    The numbers 1-801 (Shadow BBU isn’t out yet) are put into a randomizer
    You get six numbers
    Whatever numbers you get are your team
    If you win, you gain the ability to re-roll
    But this is only allowed three times

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      Feel free to join!

      • EarthenWarrior

        as soon as i figure out what that means

        • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

          It means a random number generator is choosing the mons you use

          • EarthenWarrior

            so….just random battle…..

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut it can also choose preevos

          • EarthenWarrior

            and be at a severe disadvantage

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Exactly, I said it would be unbalanced af

        • MenacingCascoon

          Yea.. Why do we just do randomizer

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            I mean a randomized team… the whole team is randomized, it’ll be wild

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Because those choose sets and don’t include pre-evos

          • MenacingCascoon

      Maybe it’s better to re-roll if you lose, because if you have like three weedles against three Arceus you are not going to win anything :P.

  • Ithsme?

    Question time, here’s a fun one: would you rather have a new Pokemon game every 2.5-3 years and have the amount of content that HGSS had every time, or have a new game every year, but continue with the minimal content?

    This one’s easy for me- option 1. A HGSS style game would last me much longer than the recent ones. SM didn’t have the content to last even 3 months for me.

    • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

      i only play sun and moon when im really bored

      • Ithsme?

        I picked up MH4U yesterday and it’s a blast. I’m using it to fill the gaping hole in my heart after finishing BotW.

        • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

          I just continued to play BotW having fun again

          • Ithsme?

            That’s good. I’ve pretty much done everything I wanted to at this point, so sadly I won’t touch my switch for a month or so. I am glad I got done before exams though lol

      • I don’t remember when I last played it. When I made my Lusateam maybe? That I never used?

      • Pharap

        Haven’t touched it properly since January.

        I have been hatching eggs in ORAS however (still can’t get the Eevee I want).

        • Pharap

          ‘properly’ being not just downloading and claiming a mystery gift.

    • TCRowlet

      2 years with post-game

      • Ithsme?

        Yeah. It’d suck having to wait but it’d pay off.

    • Pharap

      HGSS was gold (and silver), I can wait years if it means properly good games instead of games I’d rather forget existed.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Option 1 – There wouldn’t be as many Pokemon games but it’ll be worth it, I’m kinda tired of Pokemon games with minimal post game content

    • Ultron

      I think they can strike a balance. B2W2 were only a year after BW and they managed a good amount of content. HGSS was only like a year after Platinum anyway. Granted I’m not sure how much longer it would take with the new graphics

      • Pharap

        Their attempts at improving the graphics are one of the main reasons it keeps taking so long. Reusing all the old Pokemon and Player models and just adding new ones would save them a ton of work compared to redoing a ton of the existing ones.

        • Ultron

          That’s true. That’s why I’m almost hesitant to say there’ll be another game this year.

          • Pharap

            Tbh I’m kind of hoping they’ll put it off if it means getting a better game.
            As nice as the graphics and customisation in SM were, I’d live without them for some better post-game content, a better paced story or various other refinements.

  • Ithsme?

    Question 2, spinoff question: if option 1 happened, would you rather that GF continue with the concept of a “generation” with a few games each time, but with a lot of content, or have new Pokemon and new everything every 3 years, but do away with remakes and sequel versions?

    • Ithsme?

      I would rather have option 2, because otherwise we wouldn’t get new Pokemon or anything for like 6-8 years.

      Sorry if this doesn’t make sense. Basically what I’m asking is, would you rather continue what’s happening now, or have a new story and new Pokemon every game?

      • TCRowlet

        What’s happening now is perfectly fine for me.

  • So is this MK8D Tourney actually happening or no?

    • TCRowlet

      If only it was 200cc ;~;

  • the only thing I remember from the 3rd movie

    • Blitzin’ Arcanine

      It’s yo mama

    • Pharap

      The 3rd film was well animated but the plot was full of holes.

      • like what?

        • Pharap

          The Unown having the Power to create an Entei (among other Pokemon) and the power to crystallise things.
          The fact they could hypnotise Delia and cause her to faint but couldn’t simply do the same to everyone else.
          The fact something so drastic is going on and they don’t make any attempt to call in the E4, the Champion or any Gym leaders.
          Not to mention why the Unown chose to do it all in the first place, or why they chose to return Professor Hale afterwards.
          Oh, and they never said where her mother was while this was all happening, her father had been kidnapped but considering what was going on someone would have had the sense to contact her mother.

    • Ultron

      I always remember, “If that is what you wish”

      Entei says it like 50 times. I never liked how he talked though. That movie actually made Entei my least favorite of the legendary cats beasts

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

    -Typhlosion

    That’s not to say I don’t like these guys (Charizard Y is one of my favorite megas) but I feel they’re a bit overhyped

    • EarthenWarrior

      all

      • Ultron

        wut

        • EarthenWarrior

          overhyped buttrags

      • MenacingCascoon

        True Pokemon is just overrated. Digimon is where it’s attack

    • Gikie

      OU pokes

      • Ultron

        Fair enough

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Ho-oh
      Charizard
      Blastoise
      Every Pseudo except Goodra
      Mewtwo
      Greninja
      Eevee

      • Ultron

        Poor Goodra

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          It deserves more love

          • EarthenWarrior

            tell that to google images…

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            #ruinedbygoogleimages

      • Pharap

        Goodra was a mistake.

        • Ultron

          I’m not a big fan of it, but I like it more than kommo-o

          • Pharap

            Granted I’m not a fan of either, but Kommo-o has the advantage of not being a disturbing pile of hentai-abused goo.

          • Ultron

            I’ll stay away from google images

          • Pharap

            I have seen things that cannot be unseen.

    • Pharap

      Greninja is definitely at the top.
      Not sure about any others.

      • Ultron

        Stupid greninja

    • MenacingCascoon

      What does overrated even mean? Is just a pokemon many people like that you dont like? Or a pokemon many people like that shouldnt be liked?

      • Pharap

        Aren’t those the same things?

        • MenacingCascoon

          No examples:
          1. Means a lot of people like Celesteela but I hate it.
          2. A lot children including myself pikachu, but it really is a super basic pokemon and shouldnt really be liked.

          • Pharap

            Why shouldn’t Pikachu be liked?
            Sometimes simple designs are the best.
            For example, most of the earlier Eevee-lutions are quite simple but they’re still well liked.

            Both points have their basis in opinion since you cannot define what ‘shouldn’t’ be liked in a purely logical/scientific way.

          • MenacingCascoon

            They were examples, but I understand the meaning now

      • Ultron

        I’d probably classify it as pokemon that are put on a pedestal but aren’t the end-all-be-all of pokemon.

    • Blitzin’ Arcanine

      Lucario, Mega Charizard X, and Mewtwo

      • Ultron

        True. Megazard x is a bit overrated

        • Blitzin’ Arcanine

          Used to love it, actually. But then I slowly realized how much it was getting the attention, with Charizard Y getting left behind. Then I started hating it.

      • Pharap

        Mega Charizard X would be less terrible if its flames weren’t afixed to its mouth.

  • Gikie

          The end tho XD

            How did it end, I got bored and closed it 😐

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            at the end everything but morelull and tyrunt died,lived via focus sash tyrunt went for Fire fang, missed, morelull killed it with leech seed

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            I feel bad for Huntark xD

  • If you ate the bird people in Botw would they be Do-ritos?

    • Pharap

      Was that a rito-rical question?

      • No need to be so ger-RUDE-o

        • Pharap

          That was terrible ; n ;

  • Dr_Vulpine

    Pokemon RUMBLE Stars.

    • Ultron

      That would be disappointing

    • TheMonster6893

      Oh I’d be so …….Oh idk…I don’t really hate the rumble games, but that would be a bummer lol

    • Pharap

      Eh, could be worse.

  • Pharap

    OH GOD, WHAT, NO, HALP, WTF HAVE I STUMBLED UPON!!??

  • NOOOO I WAS DRAWING ON THE WRONG LAYER

  • Blitzin’ Arcanine

    Be playing Showdown while listening to this:

    • Pharap

      Both Mario Galaxies had exceptional soundtracks.
      I wish they’d make a third.

      • Blitzin’ Arcanine

        Yep.. I was so eager for a third to be announced in 2012 or 2013. Great times.

        But I’m satisfied that we’re getting SMO, which is somewhat similar to the Galaxy games

        • Pharap

          I’m going to miss the crazy gravity-defying planets though.
          And I have my doubts about it being Sunshine/Galaxy level.

  • BLEHGGG

    I’m drawing right now but I can’t stop thinking of BotW. I wanna play it so baddddd

    but if I don’t finish this today it will take me forever to

    I got a really dumb idea for a tournament, yes indeed I do

    • oh god what is it?

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        Draft format
        Multi battles :3

        • Draft format as in pokemon get chosen for you?

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            As in you can choose a certain number mons from each tier (rank since this is multi battles) and when you choose a mon, no one else gets to pick it

          • @MenacingCascoon

            Found your next tournament format

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            XD thanks
            I said multi instead of doubles because it’s two people on a team and it makes everything more insane

          • MenacingCascoon

            I wish. Multi isnt as cool, plus we wont have enough people. But Ill do draft singles

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            I wanna do singles but smogon is taking so damn long to release NU which we 100 percent need

  • Pharap
  • Why are multi battle free for alls more fun than battle royals

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      Simple: the game doesn’t end when one player loses all their shit so you don’t need to play as carefully

  • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

    WHY IS X’S VICTORY ROAD THE WORST THING EVER IF YOU AREN’T LEVELING!?

    • I never liked Victory Road dungeons really.

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        I like them but I’m getting slaughtered
        I think my team just sucks

        • What’s your team?

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Gourgeist (Putting in the absolute most)
            Barbaracle (The alternative was Clawitzer)
            Delphox
            Florges
            Noivern (Underleveled…. a lot)
            Pangoro

          • Wtf? Barbaracle over Clawitzer!? I lost a bit of respect for you.

            But the rest of your team is pretty cool. Especially Gourgeist so respect points come back

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Gourgeist was literally the first pick. I wanted naught but i didn’t wanna type double
            Barbaracle was literally because I want to destroy birds

          • Ice Beam .-.

            Nah but X and Y for sure has alot of great options for Pokemon. I’ve played through it twice and there a[re still some pokemon I wanna use (Florges and Goodra especially) If only that dex was attached to a better region

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            About that…..
            I really honestly hate the type spreads, fire literally has fucking pyroar as the other Kalos choice. If you wanna use all new mons, you’re fucked

  • What’s the champion of Sinnoh’s favorite instrument?

    • Ithsme?

      I want to see the battle frontier and walking with pokemon return, not just amity square. And I want amity square to be something new.

      • TCRowlet

        Amity Square will be where you can walk mega evolutions

      • Make Amity Square into a facility where you do minigames with your pokemon to raise Happiness and its EVs

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        Amity square, deluxe drifloon walking

    • Pharap

      I want to see Ultra Beasts retconned 😀

      Seriously though, as long as they keep the honey trees and bring everything back I’ll be happy. An ORAS treatment (minus urbanising things, I still have a grudge against them for what they did to mauville).

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        AGREED WITH THE MAUVILLE THING TOOOO

        • Pharap

          Apartments above a shopping mall?
          It’s like some awful pre-futuristic dystopia.

          And then what they did to new mauville… ; n ;

    • Ithsme?

      Yep. I’m here passively while studying for my AP test playing monster hunter.

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        Haiii

        • Ithsme?

          😀

      • Pharap

        What’s the test for?

        • Ithsme?

          World history. I’ll probably be fine, but I’m the kind of person who stresses out about these things and does nothing about it.

          • Pharap

            Can’t help you much there. Most of the history I know is either British (Battle Of Hastings, Great Fire Of London, Shakespeare, World War 2, Celts, Romans) or really really ancient history (Romans, Egyptians, Greeks, Japanese).

          • Ithsme?

            I’m fine on everything up to 600 CE, and everything after 1750 CE, but there’s a blurry patch inbetween there.

          • Pharap

            Back in my day it was BC and AD 😛

    • Yep drawing Natalie digitally

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        Hiiiii

  • Pharap
    • Ithsme?

      The article title is sorta misleading. They should’ve mentioned something about the formatting on the website.

      • Pharap

        Patterns.

        • Ithsme?

          It’s still more evidence than this, but I guess you’re right.

          • Pharap

            It’s like the old adage of the cursed gemstone. People believe that anyone who wears it is cursed to die because a few of the owners died in mysterious circumstances, but everyone conviniently forgets the owners who survived because nobody writes a newspaper article with the title “owner survives curse of gemstone”. Further to which, the owners were all wealthy, which makes them inherantly more likely to be violently robbed.

            I suspect if you looked at all the cases where there was no pattern to Nintendo direct, you’d find the ‘lack of pattern’ cases outweigh the patterned cases. On top of which, any pattern is usually coincidental due to the birthday paradox. The more nintendo directs you have, the more likely it is that they’ll coincide with some past event.

      It looks good

    • Pharap

      It’s a matter of taste.

      • … what does that mean

        • no seriously like… what do you mean?

          • Pharap

            I don’t like the shiny patch on the cheek because I am biased against art styles where skin is made to look shiny because it goes against the physics of subsurface scattering.

          • /r/iamverysmart

          • Pharap

            Never doubt the power of subsurface scattering:

  • MenacingCascoon

    Lets do a poll then
    Who thinks a game counnouncement will happen THIS WEEK
    Who doesnt think one will happen this week?
    One vote for no

    • TCRowlet

      I don’t know about this week. But fingers are crossed. It’s been so silent.

    • Pharap

      I’m going to vote no it won’t, they’ll be announcing something else.

    • I’m confident in something being announced this week

    • Ithsme?

      Nay

      None this year at all.

      • I am Kurusu!

        That will just send me into dispare…. Unless they finally announce the date it comes and if an exclusive medal will come with YW:PS

    • Blitzin’ Arcanine

      I believe one will occur

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I think that a game will get announced.

      I hope…

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      • Pharap

        • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

          OH GOD

        • Daedardus

          • Pharap

            That’s not a Pokemon, it’s Chuck with a Taxidermy Pokemon.

    • I am Kurusu!

      I think game announcment this WEEK!

    • TheMonster6893

      I honestly think it could happen this week. Back in April the week before the last Direct they did the same shifting of old ones and that happened a week before last month’s direct. So it stands to reason it’d be the same for this time as well. lol

  • Hey guys, I came back as soon as I heard this news. I got my Nintendo Switch last month and I love it so much! I would be so excited if the rumor of Pokemon Stars coming to the Switch is true. It would be another wonderful title to add my library. I got Breath of the Wild with my Switch and defeated Ganon finally yesterday. And I got Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on launch. So, my library is pretty sparse at the moment. Currently only waiting for Super Mario Odyssey to come later this year, so it would be nice to have another title to look forward to in the future.

    • BotW is AMAZING. I have only killed two beasts and I’m taking my time with it. The best game I’ve ever played

      • I agree. Breath of the Wild is hands down one of the best games I’ve played. Such a beautifully crafted game. I hope that future Zelda games take the same direction. This was actually the first Zelda game I played and completed. It got me hooked into the series. I plan on getting Wind Waker for Wii U per a recommendation from my friend. Anyways, now I defeated Ganon, I am focusing on the Shrines. I have 89 done, so I’m almost there. Just 31 more to go.

        • Wind Waker is my personal favorite (besides BotW of course) so you’re goona love it.

          • I can’t wait to pick it up. The exploring of the islands seems like it’s going to be a lot of fun. Kinda similar to the exploration in Breath of the Wild. I can see why my friend recommended it to me.

    • Daedardus

      Have you never played Xenoblade Chronicles? I’m anticipating 2 more than any other announced game atm.

      • No, I’ve never played Xenoblade Chronicles but I might give it a try in the future. I’m trying to get into more game series. Before playing Breath of the Wild, the only game series I liked was Pokemon and Super Mario. Though now I can say that I’m becoming a proud Legend of Zelda series fan too.

        • Daedardus

          Plaaayyy itttt.

          • From what I’ve seen, it looks kinda similar to Breath of the Wild in terms of the exploration. Is that true? I hope to get to it eventually. I’ll have to check out the trailer for Xenoblade Chronciles 2.

          • Daedardus

            Nah, it’s different. Xenoblade isn’t an open world game, just a game with free roaming to past areas and very huge areas. The structure of the game is still linear. Xenoblade X is truly open world but sacrifices the story for the feel of exploration. Xenoblade X is more like Breath of the Wild in terms of finding new areas and wanting to explore everything. Chronicles is the better overal game though, with better story and combat imho.

    • I am Kurusu!

      Yay your back

  • Dicie

    Was expecting some actual evidence towards a new game soon rather than speculation, so kinda got my hopes up for nothing. It is about that time, although there’s been a lot of breaking of tradition lately. Who knows what’s gonna happen?

    • It is the month of May, so I’m holding out some hope that we’ll get an announcement. Traditionally, Pokemon games have been announced either during the month, as was the case with ORAS, HGSS, and Platinum, or the first big news on a game is announced, as was the case with SM, BW, and DP.

    • Daedardus

      The recent announcement of the merchandise saying ‘look upon the stars’, is a pretty huge hint though. Masuda also hinted/trolled at something on Twitter a month ago, something he also did when he visited France (Kalos) or the beach… 🙂

      • Pharap

        And here I thought they were just preparing for the delta aquarid meteor shower 😛

    • Daedardus

      She looks like she turned her head way too far, and she also has a left hand for her right arm 😛

      • …shit you’re totally right

        • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            (Rowlet cry)

    • MenacingCascoon

      Man people who can do this are always respected. But her neck doesnt really seem natural. At least turn her body a little bit. Other than that and the hand thing, and that one boot is bigger than the other,

      • this is what I get for not using references for 90% of it >.>

        • MenacingCascoon

          Its so much better than whatever I can do. Congrats

      • Daedardus

        The shoulder bone should also not come that high when holding the arm in that position, it mostly sticks upwards when you are putting your arm real high with the hand above the shoulder. Try it for yourself in a mirror :).

    • Pharap

      I don’t like her hairstyle.

      Or the colour of her kidneys 😛

    • EarthenWarrior

      butt!

      • i hate everything

        • EarthenWarrior

          not everything

    • MelloMori

      Hmm…Its well done. The boots are slightly off, but the right one being slight bunched up kinda saves it. Her hair’s well done, though I feel like the shaved half might be better illustrated as a lighter/pastel color. Kinda like if you’ve scene someone who shaved their head and you start to see the hair growing back. Really the only flaw is the position she’s in. Its a great pose, but she needs to be at more of an angle. Where she’s standing right now it looks like she’s stretching her neck back unnaturally to the point that it’s uncomfortable and unnatural at best, to being a full on owl girl at worst. Also just noticed that her right hand’s backwards. Otherwise it’s really good. The arm bangles look super good and stylized and once again your eyes and faces are fantastic. Easily some of my favorite in recent memory.

      • Thank you! Really helpful! References really do help fix the pose I guess 😛

        Did someone say Oingo Boingo?

          Araki certainly knows his musicians.

  • TheMonster6893

    Ugh….I know it isn’t likely until at least tomorrow, but I want Nintendo to just announce when and what the direct is! I’d like to know now whether I should be SUPER excited or just moderately excited or just neutral. Obviously I really want it to be a Pokemon direct, but right now I’d really take anything. Just tell us what it is!!!! lol

    • Daedardus

      I asked the Magic 8 ball for tomorrow: http://www.indra.com/8ball/19.gif

      • EarthenWarrior

        None can surpass the wisdom of the novelty toy….

      • TheMonster6893

        I mean I don’t think the actual direct will be tomorrow, but it’s likely we’ll get a heads up as to when the the direct will be. That heads up COULD be as early as tomorrow. With said heads up we’ll know what we’re dealing with.

      • Pharap

        The reason those are capable of predicting the future is because there’s a tiny black hole inside.

        bah Mighty Lynel Bown WITH FIVE SHOT

  • How do you recharge items in BOTW

    • EarthenWarrior

      recharge?

      • Like the champion weapons

        • EarthenWarrior

          i don’t think they recharge…..

          • I think they do, you just gotta wait.I know that’s for the Master Sword, but I’m not sure about anything else.

          • EarthenWarrior

            the champion’s weapons break and don’t come back
            the boons however just have cooldowns

          • Oh, I wouldn’t know since I don’t own a Switch

          • EarthenWarrior

            then why am i even talking to you

          • I don’t know, why are you?

    • If you’re talking about the Master Sword, you have to wait for it to recharge on it’s own (In real time, mind you.).

  • TCRowlet

    Does anyone want to play MK8 Deluxe? Gonna be doing some 200cc races.

    • Daedardus

      Maaaybeee. I suck at MK though and I’ve never played 20cc before.

      • TCRowlet

        Lol oh it’ll be an experience if you’ve never played 200 xD What’s your Switch FC?

    • I suck at 200CC

      • TCRowlet

        The only way to get better is to practice

        • Yeaaaaahhhh

          • EarthenWarrior

            or find where they live and break their thumbs

          • TCRowlet

            Do you wanna play or gonna pass?

    • EarthenWarrior

      i’m game if the others thicken the numbers

      • TCRowlet

        You never sent me your FC yesterday

        • EarthenWarrior

          Kuz in don’t like you T_T

          • TCRowlet

            Then don’t play me!

          • EarthenWarrior

            i want to just so i can settle the score

          • TCRowlet

            There’s no score to settle, it’s Mario Kart

          • EarthenWarrior

            Dude there’s always a score to settle with me
            Name one person here i don’t have grudges with

          • You have any grudges with me?

          • EarthenWarrior

            if i can remember who the frack you are

          • Well, my username before this was Pokemon Trainer Alex.

          • EarthenWarrior

            then i don’t think there’s any bad blood (but there’s always room for it)

          • Oh boy

          • Pharap

            This is why I’m always telling people to stop wildly changing their usernames and icons 😛

          • Kurusu?
            Seraph?
            .. me?

          • I’m pretty sure he has grudge with Seraph.

          • EarthenWarrior

            he’s always ragging on my teams

          • Honestly, he can be a dick like that (He’s constantly ragging on me for liking Incineroar), but he’s still a good guy.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I mean he even has issues with me running Sashed Nidoking

          • I don’t really care about competitive.

    • I’m up for it!

        • he probably has good acceleration, or ya know, might just be a bit better than you lol

            impossible

  • TOO FAST TOO FAST

            so do i and i cannot understand how he’s always so far ahead

      • Chicolombia

        Nope I don’t 🙁 You can always hit me up on Twitter though! We should talk haha

        • Pokemania88

          omg Chico you’re alive

        • You need to drop in more often

          • Chicolombia

            I’ll try, life’s so hectic and busy lol

    • A blind person with no hands could probably beat me

      • MewMew

        I didn’t think you were bad from what I could tell, MK8D is a lot of fun but the items are even crazier. I think you did much better than me when I first started 200cc so you deserve more credit and you will continue to get better so don’t lose hope! 🙂

        • Aww

          Well I just now got good at 150 CC so it’s going to be a bit before I can do 200CC well

          • MewMew

            That’s great! and practice makes perfect, we all have to start somewhere and you’ll get there for sure 🙂 we’re probably in the same boat, I tend to drive off road or into walls every so often XD but its fun and we should play again sometime!

  • It’s fine to discuss other games and talk about races in MK8, but please don’t narrate every single tidbit that happens. Also some of you need to watch your language.

    This isn’t a chat room. If you want to have a free flow chat go use our Discord.

      @ Moving you do need to watch your own language. Ya big ol doodoo head!

        • I am Kurusu!

          So you want to break up with her? Or she’s angering you to that point?

          • I already wanted to break up with her but doing so would make this project hell. It’s just a lot of stuff she does that kinda pisses me off and she doesn’t care about anything I like or I’m interested in but she like… expects me to be interested in her stuff like…. and just little things too like the fact that she’s a yaoi fan girl that obsesses over gay guys to the point I wonder why she’s not dating a guy (She’s pansexual) and just

            bldqufqiwfjiqefjqifjwiegqw blaaaahhhhgggggg

            sorry for the rant

          • EarthenWarrior

            And to think my brother brings home the crazy ones
            just kick this bitch to the curb

          • I will as soon as we finish this project. It’s done right at the end of the year too so that makes it easier. Like I’m pretty sure I only started dating her because I don’t know any other gay girls and we were already friends

          • I am Kurusu!

            Its ok sounds like the right call anyway, but waiting for a project also good call I would do the same in your position

          • EarthenWarrior

            i would’ve gone in a homicidal rampage

          • Jesus, Earthen she didn’t kill my family lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            ……i don’t see the difference….

        • EarthenWarrior

          Gryghh its those types of situations that really bare my fangs

    • Ithsme?

      Ugh, I agree. Not only do I end up doing all the work, but I reward them with good grades for their inactivity.

      • I am Kurusu!

        For me I get shy and try to think of good ideas so I kind of sit and think then (since my groups are normally all girls!) They choose some terrible idea thats very annoying to me that I get no say in for thinking

        Like 8 Grade history puppet show we did. It needed a celebrity in it so my group decides the one day I’m absent to do Highschool musical and to say no to my not highly appreciated Pikachu puppet I took a while to perfect and build

        • Ithsme?

          That’s awful. 🙁
          They should at least hear out your ideas.

          • I am Kurusu!

            Worse when for years and your in all female groups the teacher forgets your there and says “girls” and forgets to mention your a boy

          • Ultron

            That still happens to me

          • I am Kurusu!

            We just have to be more out there

          • Ultron

            My friends are just always generally girls so it’s destined to happen I guess lol

        • I had a group project in 7th grade where we had to research, write and illustrate a book about some roman guy who wasn’t Julius Ceaser. This girl (the popular, annoying girl) wanted to draw the pictures but I wanted to also.

          We decided to both draw a person and the other girl in our group would decide. We start and she says “Do I have to draw a person, can I just draw a flower?”

          Like… gurl… we drawing people. She ended up asking to leave the group and made her own book even though we already finished it and all she had to do was sit there and take the credit?

          • I am Kurusu!

            Oh lord

          • I am Kurusu!

            I remember now a person who was a popluar annoying girl I liked her so my idea go and ask for her #

            So I walked up to her during lunch and asked after kind of getting her out of range of her friends asked and she just walked away without a word sat down and went back to chatting as I slinked back to my table disappointed

            Now I have to say I don’t want to kill her for it but if she got hit by a bus I’d be driving it!

          • Ultron

            Well, at least you tried!

          • I am Kurusu!

            True funny I’ve gotten a few numbers in my life and lets see of all girls I’ve liked

            -Tried repeatedly for till gave up (from Oct. Of 7th to March of 8th)
            -Got the crap embarassed out of me by a popular one and rejected last day of 8th grade
            -Rejected last day of same as last
            -Gave up
            -Rejected
            -Gave up
            -Still after (We’re friends, but I really like her)
            -Gave up
            -Ignored after getting number
            -Gave up
            -The rejection I had earlier this year *I’m over it now though

            Well my love life since beginning of middle school

            Now I just realized… WTF did i just say this!!!!!?

          • Ultron

            I’ve never even asked for a friends number that many times lol. But good luck to you. I’m not upset that I’m ace and don’t have to deal with that haha

          • I am Kurusu!

            Oh no these were girls I’ve liked and what happened, but got about 7 of their numbers

    • Unless I’m working with a friend, I’ll work alone.

  • I am Kurusu!
  • EarthenWarrior

    I’m bored and still angry!

  • I am Kurusu!

    Ok sleepy tired and all plugged out and should get to bed due to just getting well and… my freakin’ math test tomorrow and german make up quiz! Ugh I’m just done

    Good night see y’all tomorrow

  • Pokemania88

    So I met a pokemon Go youtuber today… His name is Mystic7.

    I was just walking down Miami beach and there was a hoard of 8-13 year olds so I decided to check it out since they all had pokemon hats on.

    And yeah. This guy has like 1.5 mill subs.

    In other news, I am praying for some sort of announcement. Please GameFreak give us something

    • I met Mariland a few years ago at Pokemon Symphonic Evolutions which was really cool because I also had my art featured on his Black 2 Nuzlocke. Meeting youtubers is always rad. Unless the Youtuber is like… Rice Gum

      • Pokemania88

        that’s awesome! Marilland seems like a REALLY nice guy.

        • Yeah he was really nice! I told him about how much I was enjoying the Explorers of Sky playthrough he was doing at the time and he did some of the voices.

        • Ultron

          The next pokemon games WILL take place in a NEW REGION

    • EarthenWarrior

      The closest I’ve ever gotten to a YouTuber was TheJWittz when he came to NY for the Pokemon XY release, I was preoccupied and didn’t notice the hubbub, his little “tour of the line video” you could see my fat head in there but I neve got to meet him, at least I was in the vicinity of him

      • Pokemania88

        That’s cool. I feel like JWittz is a very intricate video maker. he seems to really put in a lot of work into all his content.

        • EarthenWarrior

          I would definitely shake his hand or Headbutt him if given the chance

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      Why do Pokemon GO youtubers have more subs than actual Poketubers?

      • Ultron

        Casualssss

      • Pokemania88

        Well, probably because Pokemon GO was the biggest thing in the world last year and they blew up because it was trending.

      • EarthenWarrior

        My guess extra chromosomes

      • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

        because of the hype of pokemon go and mystic7 does account giveaways if you sub

        • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

          Fuck

    • Pokemania88

      You know which Poketubers I want to meet??

      Shady and KingNappy. HELLA love their content and they seem like genuine guys.

      • I wanna meet Tamashii Hiroka. She’s just such a rad person and was partly the reason I was interested in Rom Hacking

        • Pokemania88

          She’s pretty cool. I used to watch a lot of her videos, but I unfortunately disagree with a lot of her opinions on Pokemon XD

          • Oh totally, I mean she doesn’t like Gen 4. What even. I wish she still made pokemon videos like she used to

          • Pokemania88

            Yah… She had some great Rom Hacking videos..

          • Ultron

            I couldn’t love someone who doesn’t like Gen 4..

          • It was really hard but I got over it. Had to go through the samething with Fae 😛

          • Ultron

            As long as they’re not bringing up their hatred for it all the time…

            Which I suppose is funny coming from me, considering I talk about my dislike for X&Y frequently. Although, in my defense, I generally only bring it up when prompted

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            I could

          • Ultron

            I play Gen 4 music a lot in my free time…they’d have to enjoy that at least

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            I enjoy like three tracks

        • Pokemania88

          Yes. So much yes

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            😀

      • Ultron

        I’d like to meet Ali-A and Claire Siobhan when they’re out doing pokemon go videos…too bad they live in the UK and would have no reason to come to Ohio

        • EarthenWarrior

          Feh I have nobody I want to meet from YouTube, except maybe one… But that is not the time…

          • Ultron

            Yeah I don’t really follow many so…I’d rather meet real celebs

        • Pokemania88

          I love his videos, but I don’t like his Pokemon videos and I have no idea why XD

          • Ultron

            I can understand that lol. They pronounce names wrong sometimes and I’m just like, “No!!! That’s Mamoswine, not Piloswine. Come on, guys…”

            I like when he and claire play pokemon in 3D though (don’t know if you’re familiar with the video they do together)

          • Pokemania88

            Yes! I like those videos! I also enjoy his pack opening vids too

          • Ultron

            I don’t think I’ve ever seen them!

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      In fact, that’s the subs of two shofus

      • Pokemania88

        Oh yes. Shofu and his squad are awesome too

        • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

          But a go youtuber has double the subs of one of the most popular poketubers

          • Pokemania88

            meh. As much as shofu deserves double the subs, it feels like more of a tighter community of people versus when there’s MILLIONS of people watching

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            True

            (At least it isn’t wolfpack boi)

  • Pokemania88

    Since we are talking about Poketubers let’s do this. What are your top 5 favorite Poketubers out there?

    My top 5 are:

    1. TheKingNappy – all of his content just makes me laugh and smile so much. It’s always fun.
    2. Shofu – such a great competitive battler, and the cypher 2016 made me fall out of my seat
    3. Shadypenguinn – when he played pokemon (now he does other stuff) his attitude and sheer excitement was awesome.
    4. TrainerTips – even tho Pokemon GO is mostly for casuals, I love how informed Nick is about everything and knows exactly what real Pokemon fans want out of the game
    5. Maybe a tie between aDrive and Aaron Zheng’s channel – just love their competitive content

    • Ultron

      I’ve just dipped into following Youtubers. I found Claire Siobhan when I was looking for what Mods to download for my Skyrim and liked her weirdness, so I subbed and watched her playthroughs. And then she’s dating Ali-A so I follow him now too…but they’re about as close to “poketubers” as I’ve gotten.

    • 1. Jwittz
      2. Tamashii Hiroka
      3. Dookieshed
      4. Mewmore (idk if that really counts)

      • Pokemania88

        omg dookieshed XD forgot about that man

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I’m still pissed, I sucked the last bit of info from my go-to sites
    Night >:[

  • Ultron

    Okay, I’ve decided I’m selling my WiiU to try and get a Switch. The only real downsides to that are that I won’t be able to play Smash (and it might be ported anyway) my favorite Mario game: Super Mario 3D world, or Wind Waker..although I have the gamecube version of Wind Waker, but I’d need a game card and controller to play it on the Wii. I feel like it’ll be worth it in the end though.

    • How much will you even be able to get for it though? :/

      • Ultron

        I feel like I could get maybe $180 for it on ebay or more, idk, I’ll have to look…and then sell my games separate for $15 or so each?

        • 2BBBB

          sorry ultron

          • Ultron

            For what

          • MaayaUchida

            I messed up post my posts. sorry

          • Ultron

            I don’t mean to be rude, but who are you exactly

    • EarthenWarrior

      Don’t sell it, you’ll definitely regret it
      Just get a job you hobo

      • Ultron

        I have a full time job, but I just dropped friggen $800 on car insurance, $400 on rent, and about to drop around $100 for gas and electric bills this month…not to mention paying for gas every two weeks or so…I’m about to potentially get a second job, but it’ll only be part time and pay $9 or 10/hour.

    Oh by the way I’m currently painting Weavile. what do you guys think so far? This only took me 25 minutes so it’s 100% NOT finished. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d67228caf53cb68ef059592a36c574046f0ae4ceb7750ac588fee1968d826eeb.png

    • WOAH RAD

      I think really the only things you need to change a bit is the mouth and maybe the claw is a bit big.

      But it’s super cool woaaahhhh

      • Pokemania88

        thx so much!!!. It’s not done, so the claw looks big currently, but it’s gonna actually be a perspective thing once the lighting is right 😀

        • How did you do this in 25 minutes? 😛

          • Pokemania88

            I’m a fast at digital art. Or art in general. I drew the initial sketch in 2 min, then I did the line art in 10 minutes (that takes the longest time), 7 minutes of local color, and then the rest doing shadow/lighting and adding volume

          • Jeez fam. It would take me like… 5 times that amount.

          • Pokemania88

            XD I’ve been doing digital art for a long time so it takes practice and a busy schedule to do it quickly lol. Gotta love school

    • MelloMori

      Hmm…Its quite good. The face is very well done from a stylistic sense managing to capture a unique look for it while being well lighted/shadowed. The tuf’s of fur are really well done and look very natural and good. I can see some of the obvious points that your probably going to touch up on like the upper chest looks a little wobbly for lack of a better word and thinks like that back leg and back claw look off. However for something done in 25 minutes it looks really good. Kinda reminds me of the Game Grumps Pokemon art academy art from ages ago. So really well done.

      • Pokemania88

        I actually am like only 17-20% done so it’ll look much better (I plan to make the bigger claw look like a perspective sorta thing, and the back claw will eventually be blurred out since I intend for Weavile to have a sense of running very fast).

        But very well said my friend 😀 I intended for the face to look a bit unique and for the lighting to have an eerie mood. I imagined Weavile passing by a snowy highway running through the shadows at night avoiding the light!!

      • Pokemania88

        Also I will post the final product when I finish, but finals and stuff so I can’t right now lol

    • Pharap

      Kinda spooky for Pokemon, but excellent technique.

      • Pokemania88

        Lol my intention was for it to have a darker feel with moody lighting. I guess it’s a stylistic thing that I do lol

        • Pharap

          It’s not negative per se, just unexpectedly gritty.
          Like dark modern batman vs 1960s shark repellent batman – equally good, but different intentions.

          (When it comes down to it art is all subjective anyway, only the artist’s opinion matters.)

          • Pokemania88

            Lol totally didn’t think it was negative 😀

            But either way thank you!!!

          • Pharap

            I like to be careful with my wording, some people get very touchy about their art.

          • Pokemania88

            Yes, a lot of people can get upset so you is 100% right about being careful XD

            But we iz coolio

          • Pharap

            Innit tho? 😛

    • The face kinda bugs me, but other than than that, it looks really good.

      • Pokemania88

        Yah, the face will be much smoother once I finish blending and adding the details. I’ll post it once I’m done later and then it’ll be awesome!!!!

      If they’re going for places in greece, Santorini and Crete are much better 😛

  • Chibi ME ME BIG BOY

    What did you think about the new SU episodes?

    • I really liked them, my favorite has to be I Am My Mom.Also, Aquamarine is adorable.

      • Chibi ME ME BIG BOY

        That british accent makes her sound so adorable and evil at the same time!

    • EarthenWarrior

      Liked them I don’t understand why everyone is in such a tizzy about them

    • ☆Fae☆

      I loved them

    • Still haven’t seen them. Aquamarine’s voice is adorable but I still think her design needs to be fixed up a bit with a better color scheme

    • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

      dont like SU

      • Pharap

        Thank god I’m not the only one!

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      Is the season over? If so I might start watching it

      • I think so

        • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

          Hmmmmmmmmmmmmziez

          • It’s good until Season 4

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Okay?

          • No like seriously you can skip most of Season 4

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Okeey

          • I recommend skipping Rocknaldo.There are more, but I’m just gonna recommend one before I go on this huge rant.

          • Awesome Waffles

            Not really; I understand that season 4 is the most divisive season but there are some good episodes that you would miss if you skipped it.

    • MewMew

      I liked them, they were really good episodes imo, it was interesting meeting more gems Topaz and Aquamarine were quite the pair

    • MelloMori

      Gotta still watch them, but I don’t think they air on Television in the US until tonight.

    • Ultron

      They were alright. Still no peridot so I generally don’t care as much when she’s not involved

  • The next animal crossing should have Pokémon DLC

    • EarthenWarrior

      The closest would be Pokemon inspired NPCs and some Pokemon themed items and clothes

    • Like.. maybe like..

  • Lord of Snails

    I guess were a day or so away from Corocoro leaking. Doesn’t it normally leak on the 9th or 10th in Japan, or am I thinking incorrectly?

    • TheMonster6893

      The 10th is normally the earliest we’ll get it. That said unless it has something crazy juicy it prolly own’t leak until the 12th/13th and even then if it has nothing worthy of leaking then it may not leak at all.

      • Lord of Snails

        I guess that is true. Hopefully we will get a Pokemon game for the switch.

  • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

    That was a funny and fucked up joke

        • Pharap

          2019? 2 years away?

          • Daedardus

            May 19th

          • Pharap
          • Daedardus

            Earthen is American so I used American notation. They aren’t all so bad though, European use the order of smallest increase -> biggest increase, but American notation is just because of May 19th = May 19 = 05 19 = 5/19, you don’t say 19 May like other languages do. Japanese notation is actually the international standard one, because that way there is no confusion for European and Americans.

          • Pharap

            I know how it works, I just forget because I so rarely encounter it.

          • Pharap

            Side note: I do encounter the internation standard almost as frequently as the one most European countries use locally because ISO 8601 is used by a lot of comptuers.

          • Pharap

            It’s also just occurred to me that nobody here writes “May 19th” either, it’s always “19 May”, “19th May” or more verbosely “the 19th of May”.

          Spoiler: it doesn’t get much better.

          College has nicer students but harder work.

      • Pharap

        Sadly being well educated and being an ignorant prick aren’t mutually exclusive.

        Some of the students who left secondary school with better grades than me had levels of arrogance and nastiness that makes me look humble and pleasant.

        Sadly pretty much all physics-based games are limited by processor speed and the bullet-paper problem.

        That said, I have a feeling this video isn’t really pushing things as much as it could be though.

        • Daedardus

          Nah, it’s more the fact that he crashes 200 times into the wall and always rides off terrain. I expected some crazy skilled dude who could take all the turns while building up insane speed.

          • Pharap

            Ah. It’s one thing to be able to reprogram a racing game, it’s an entirely different matter to actually be good at it 😛

            Maybe he/she should have tried to get the AI to run it.

    Well my day just took a turn. Apparently my old childhood pet is about to die.

  • I am Kurusu!

    Well I’m in a good mood one of the cute 11th graders on my bus just came up to from now where and said I have beautiful eyes now I was feeling just neutral today, but that made my day

  • Blehhgggg when I get home I have to edit (completely fucking redo) the script for our project -.-

    Today just sucks

    • I am Kurusu!

      Aww sorry about that it can still get better the day is still young

      • Pharap

        Not here it isn’t, it’s 8pm here 😛

    • Pharap

      What’s the project about?

      • The War of the Worlds radio broadcast panic. We have to make a five minute video about it

        • Pharap

          Wasn’t that just a massive hoax?

          • Yeahhh we found that out after we couldn’t change the subject. It wasn’t a hoax but more of an exaggeration. Just a couple people were fooled, it wasn’t a huge panic

          • Pharap

            Oh well, at least you have a plot twist.

  • ShinyXatu

    I really do think they’ll announce the Direct tomorrow or Wednesday. Something simply has to happen around this time, new mainline game or not. Even back in 2015 when we were waiting for a Pokémon Z announcement, we still got Super Mystery Dungeon in May. Fingers crossed!

    • G̖̘o̸̗̮̩v̵̘̬ͅͅn͇ah͖̙͔̹͔ ̱̣̯

      A direct on 5/10 would be amazing because ill be off

    • TheMonster6893

      I think regardless of whether it’s Pokemon related we’ll see a direct this week. It seems likely. Hopefully it’s a pokemon game tho hahaha

    For those hopelessly waiting on a Direct announcement, there was to be a short course on ‘How to deal with disappointments’. It’s been cancelled, however.

    • Pharap

      One of my rules is ‘no shipping’ 😛

      • It brings me too much joy. Forgive me, for I have become trash

        • Pharap

          I don’t understand why there can’t just be stories without people getting into relationships.

          *yells at the heaves*
          Asexual is a valid choice too.

          • What.. no that’s not the point. I don’t think these character should necissarily be together in cannon, I just like them together. I’m with you that we need more asexual characters. As well as non-binary characters

          • Pharap

            Seeing other people in relationships gives me no gratification whatsoever. Unless it’s critical to the plot I don’t give a damn who the characters are shacked up to.

          • Ok?? But like… I do? I think they’re cute together and it makes me happy. Not everyone has to enjoy it

          • Pharap

            Eh, I don’t get it.
            Call me when there’s explosions or plot.

          • Cute fanart will do

          • Pharap

            That can exist without relationships though.
            Most fanart is rule 34 anyway.

  • Blitzin’ Arcanine

    For all you guys earlier, thank you for comforting me. Y’all are the best 😀

    Anyway, while it will be pretty sad that my dog is going to die, I reflected on the good times I had with her. I remember picking her out of the litter when I was a kid, playing fetch with her, bringing her to dog parks, and even working on my homework while she was right next to me.

    Often I didn’t realize the things she taught me. I thought about it today, it truly dawned on me she introduced me to love in a new light. I knew she loved me my whole life, but just the immense affection she showed melted my heart. Her willingness to stay with me all the time was beautiful, and it inspired me to become someone better. She introduced me to showing an ideal sense of love, which helped me.

    It’s very tragic that she’ll be passing soon, but she forged a mark in me and my family. We were her caretakers, but really she was the one that care-took our hearts. I’ll always love her for that.

    • Pharap

      Nobody knows unconditional love like a pet.

      This is precisely why I prefer feline company to that of humans.
      *totally not a crazy cat bachelor*

  • Ithsme?

    This is quite possibly the worst week possible for a direct for me, as I’ve just become aware. On top of my AP test, I have the biggest test of the year in Latin as well as a bunch of projects to do. Ugh, at least I can see the summer-y light at the end of this tunnel.

    • Pharap

      I wish Latin had been an option when I was at school.
      All we got was mandatory French and German.
      If I’d had the choice I would have avoided German completely.

      • Daedardus

        Meh, Latin is pretty useless. It’s just picked by all those so called smart people to show that they are smarter than the rest but it serves nothing lol 😛

        • Si on peut parler Francais, on peut avoir plus utilité à partir de cela il.

          • Daedardus

            Do you speak French or is that Google translated? 😛

          • I’m taking French in school but some of the words were google translated because I also have my lowest grade in that class 😛

          • Daedardus

            Ah ok, because that didn’t make any sense whatsoever :P.

          • lol yeaaahh
            I always try to show off my
            AMAZING FRENCH SKILLZ
            but I can’t speak the language for shit

          • Daedardus

            I really like Cyprien, you should check his channel out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJD1zoAaCmo. Videos are one of the funniest on Youtube, the French level isn’t too hard and there should be subs or translations available :).

          • Pharap

            I understood a worrying amount of that without looking at the subtitles.
            Maybe my education wasn’t a total waste after all.
            I find it odd that he’s pronouncing the ‘chat’ in ‘snapchat’ like the French word for ‘cat.
            Snapcat.

            What even is a snapchat. Wait, don’t answer that, I don’t want to know.

          • Pharap

            “My french is terrible. But I live in a castle in the sky and my birthday is the 1st January 700 AD”

            I don’t know what the french equivalent of AD is and I couldn’t remember anything over 100.

            Technically that should have been a comma before ‘mais’, but I’m always forgetting that with English connectives anyway 😛

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            eyyyyyy

          • Pharap

            My French isn’t very good, but the grammar of that sentence seems off somehow.

          • it probably is

          • Pharap

            For a start ‘parler’ is the verb on its own, it should be ‘parle’ in present tense like in “Je ne parle Francais”. I don’t remember much about avoir except it has some crazy rules. The rest I only have half an idea about. I recognise the verb ‘partir’ but can’t remember what it is. I’ve got a feeling it’s related to going somewhere, but I’m probably just seeing false etymology in ‘depart’.

          • No it’s parler becuase it comes after the verb “Peut” so you wouldn’t conjugate it.

          • Daedardus

            You don’t use pouvoir though. You just speak a language, you are not able to speak one :).

          • Pharap

            Oh right, I was reading ‘peut’ as ‘peu’, I thought it was an adverb.

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Comment t’apples tu?

          • Pharap

            (Huh, I was taught “Tu t’appelle comment”. Aparently there’s two ways of asking for some reason.)

            Je m’appelle ‘le char noire’. Je suis morte. Et tu? Est tu un cheval ou un chien?

            (Mort? Morte?… hrm…)

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            hmmmmmmm

          • Pharap

            I just told you my name is ‘the black cat’, that I’m dead and I asked you if you’re a horse or a dog.

            Education well spent.

          • Pharap

            Note: I got a C in French in my GCSEs. Aparently this sort of nonsense passes as ‘acceptable’.

        • Pharap

          Actually it’s very useful because it’s the basis of most of the European languages and makes it easier to reason about the meanings of various English words. The vast majority of complicated English words have their etymology founded in either Greek or Latin.

          (I have a Latin dictionary I sometimes flick though. If nothing else it’s handy when trying to name things.)

          • Daedardus

            Well, yeah if you want to learn French, Spanish or Italian it’s useful. For German, Dutch, Danish, Swedish not so much. But the latter are the better European countries to live in though 😛

          • Pharap

            French and Italian are two languages I wouldn’t mind knowing. Spanish would probably be useful though I’ve no great interest in it.
            Denmark and Sweden would probably be ok to visit but I wouldn’t want to stay.
            As for Germany, absolutely no interest whatsoever.

          • Daedardus

            Where are you from?

          • Pharap

            England.

          • Daedardus

            Visit everything while you still can I would say 😛

          • Pharap

            Why would I not be able to? Are my legs going to fall off?

            I’ve been to France, Greece, Egypt and Bulgaria before, if I can visit Italy and Japan someday, that’ll be all the most interesting countries done.

          • Daedardus

            You’ll leave the EU, remember? :p

          • Pharap

            That doesn’t mean all Britons will be eternally prevented from travelling to mainland Europe. Britain’s not a part of America, Africa or Asia but everyone can still travel there.

          • Daedardus

            Of course not, but Visa free travel is a blessing though.

          • Pharap

            Eh, if I’m going to the trouble of planning a holiday I can live with the extra forms. Besides, I’d have to do it for Japan anyway.

  • UnburdenedLegume

      Do some exploring. Make sure you’re mentally ready for the end. That way it’ll make it all the more sweeter when you beat it lol

        • “MEGA GROUDON AND KYOGRE??????”

          I would argue with my friend about that. I was pretty sure it was some kind of form change but he was certain it was mega evolution

          • TheMonster6893

            I mean it basically is mega evolution hahaha

          • Blitzin’ Arcanine

            Lol same

          • Daedardus

            So you were both right? 😛

          • lol i guess so

      • TheMonster6893

        I never really liked the audio they did for this video and the original battle vids they did for XY. silence and some rumbling can be good, but I feel like that’s not what you want for an announcement vid or clips of the games.

        • TCRowlet

          This is how the trailer should have been

          • TheMonster6893

            I mean ……….with the music yes. Maybe not that annoying sound that is super loud along with the music hahaha

      • Ithsme?

        I hope if we get a new game announcment it’s more than just that. I remeber being hyped and then seeing nothing. Same with the pokenchi thing. Just like when SM got announced.

        • Pharap

          Pokenchi is a weird show. Pretty sure it’s aimed at 3-5 year olds.

          • TheMonster6893

            It is aimed at younger kids lol The problem is that people keep thinking about how it was in it’s much earlier iterations in which the variety show had a lot new information on the games. They even revealed a few games there too.

          • Ithsme?

            I get that but remeber being promised new footage and getting groudon for two seconds? I mean they didn’t lie per se, but it was annoying.

          • Pharap

            Welcome to Japan. Stop having expectations and eat your Onigiri like a good work horse. And don’t forget to ward off the yokai on your way out.

    • TheMonster6893

      I remember being in my Video Post production class when the news hit. Class was about to start and when I saw that ORAS was announced I nearly jumped out of my seat and screamed. I had to stifle myself hahaha

  • Pharap

    It’s just occurred to me that ORAS acknowledged that there was a Litleo constellation (this fact was inconviniently removed from the English version).

    Also Zinnia’s Whismur was names Aster, and it was apparently named after the previous Lorekeeper.

    And her Japanese name is based on the red spider lily, known as the ‘flower of heavens’ in Buddhist scriptures.

    Amusing.

    • Ithsme?

      I’m confused, why was that removed?

      • Pharap

        Translators make the weirdest choices.

        Excuse me while I watch Brock eat some onigiri jelly filled doughnuts.

          • Pharap

            France.

        • Pharap

          Nobody understood the Havisham joke ; n ;

          • Pharap

            Somebody acknowledged that nobody understood the Havisham joke and didn’t stop for an explanation.

            Charles Dickens would be crying now… if he weren’t dead.

    • Blitzin’ Arcanine

      What’s the team now?

    • The best champion…
      and by “best” I mean most wasted potential

    • Ithsme?

      Don’t you mean time to press A and win?

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        I’m fighting her underleveled….

        • Ithsme?

          I can’t imagine she’d be that much more difficult.

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            I mean the elite four buttfucked my terrible team

  • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

    Why is Diantha so damn pathetic? I’m one shotting everything….

    • She has Mega Gardevoir though so… that’s cool?

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        Haven’t got to it yet

    • MenacingCascoon

      Are you overlleveled?

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        Underleveled

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      And my starter just died
      Congrats Delphox, you were garbage

    • Pharap

      Ironically half her Pokemon are weak to Fairy, half to Steel and 4/6ths to Ice.

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        Eyyy

        • Pharap

          It’s ironic because her mega is half Fairy.

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            True

  • Dicie

    Have any new trademarks been filed in regards to a new set of Pokemon games? That is how we got our first look at the Sun and Moon logos last year.

    • Ithsme?

      Not that I know of, but it was only one day in advance last year, so it’s not too late.

  • TCRowlet

    Cool 0:09

  • ShinyXatu
    • Pokemania88

      lol just watched this.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Wow this is getting more speculation than I expected

    • Daedardus

      12 minute video with no real evidence to decipher? Yep, it’s Gamexplain. (Love them though)

  • MY GROUP LITERALLY JUST COPIED FROM WIKIPEDIA AND PUT IT IN THE SCRIPT WTF

    • Pharap

      Alter the sentence order, that’s what I used to do.

    • Blitzin’ Arcanine

      Did you get stuck with a group of people who never do anything usually?

      • Pharap

        i.e. 80% of the school?

        • Blitzin’ Arcanine

          More like 90% for the schools I went to

          • Pharap

            It fluctuates. By the 4th year I gave up and stopped caring about my grades, and that’s how I didn’t get any As. The moral of this story? I live in a shit town that has a shit school full of shit people, but I’m glad I went to the ‘good’ school and not the alternative – in my school the kids were only smoking and shoplifting, the other place was doing drugs and knifing.

          • Blitzin’ Arcanine

            Damn that’s awful about the alternative, but it’s great you went to that better option.

          • Pharap

            Better is relative.

            Hardly anyone played video games or watched anime, they were all into lame normal hobbies like sport and horse riding and sport and reading novels.

          • Blitzin’ Arcanine

            That’s a shame. At least we’re here for ya for video games and anime 👍

          • Pharap

            Except I never get round to watching anime these days, and everyone here plays console games rather than computer games. And the ones who play computer games mainly play Overwatch and/or don’t use Steam.

            I know, I’m hard to please 😛

      • not really? They just don’t know how to do this stuff apparently. Hell, I’m going to make story boards after the script to make sure we get this shit right

  • EarthenWarrior

    What are you chuds up to, i’ve been busting my ass trying to get a Dark Pulse Deino for my associate

    • Pharap

      The usual. French, death, speculation, mocking Diantha, Hitler Moon.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Oi vey…

  • Pharap
  • EarthenWarrior

    Bored……..I want to make a pokemon associated with light
    But this pokemon is also a evil
    Lightmare?

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      Edge?

      • EarthenWarrior

        I’m getting so sick of that,

        • It’s on the edge of glory though?

          • EarthenWarrior

            oh please that wasn’t the context
            Nowadays you can’t have a legitimately badass character without it being a instant joke

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            Reminder that some people think that Reaper is cool, not edgy

          • Pharap

            Because this isn’t biased at all.

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            I see one as edgy and one as bland but eh

          • Pharap

            I meant because one of them is an Overwatch character (I had to reverse image search to confirm that hunch).

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            They both are

          • Pharap

            Huh, I thought the latter was a comic book villain.
            No idea who I’m getting them mixed up with then.
            Never mind, carry on.

          • How is this biased?

          • Pharap

            Overwatch. Didn’t even know who the character was but I could tell they were from Overwatch.

        • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

          Devangle
          The edgy pokemon

          • EarthenWarrior

            maybe a Valkyrie

    • Pharap

      Brightfall?
      Ivony?
      Shadawn?
      Luminight?

      • EarthenWarrior

        i like the Luminight
        if i wasn’t already doing a set of Elemental Pokemons based on a card suit i could’ve made a set of angelic mythicals

        • Pharap

          Or Lumenox (Latin is useful!)

          Fun fact: Judaism has different tiers of angels to Christianity.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Hmmmmmm let me try something….

            Luminight
            Ghost/Flying
            The Guidance Pkm
            Soul Sworn: when ally pokemon faints the user regains 50% of max health
            an angelic pokemon with……i lost it……just a female looking pokemon with white armor plates heavily resembling a Valkyrie, a set of powerful wings and a ghostly spiritual glimmer whirling around it
            “a Pokemon of legend that only appears when great pokemon will meet their end, it challenges them to a final fight to prove if they are worthy of paradise”

    • Illumsday?

  • Pharap
  • I am Kurusu!

    Well I worked on my Smash fantasy list

    I’m also making a small piece of characters who might still make it, but for now I’ve excluded such as any app related ones, Venoct and Runny Egg

    • EarthenWarrior

      Whip it out and i will judge it with my mighty Earthen cynicism

      • I am Kurusu!

        Oh I haven’t finished and can’t cause its at my Grandma’s but Shovel knight, Yooka lay lee, Splatoon person, Lycanroc Midnight and King K Rool are on it and more

        Rosalina was sadly forgotten to be put on and its already at 65 characters

        • EarthenWarrior

          K Rool is a tough sell, his fat ass hasn’t been harassing the kongs in years, his last appearance was Super Mario Sluggers and since he has a identity crisis every game pinning down a moveset is hard

          • I am Kurusu!

            Yeah that was more cause he was a fan favorite on the ballot so i thought tough sell but its possible

  • EarthenWarrior

    Quiet…

    A sexy foot long sub with honey glazed turkey, ham and bologna (oh baby), topped with sensual homemade Coleslaw and avocado all on a extra thicc New York style deli roll.
    And organic carrot chips and Mac and cheese with breadcrumbs and bacon and a mug of ginger ale
    And true to its description the entire thing was a mouth orgasm

    • Nickerton

      More attracted to the wallpaper behind the sandwich tbh

      • EarthenWarrior

        it’s a tapestry

    • Pokemania88

      Looks really good but it would’ve been awesome if you took a picture of the cross section

      • EarthenWarrior

        that didn’t last long, it was sooooo good, the coleslaw added such a great taste better then standard condiments and the red cabbage and veg slivers gave it a hearty crunch, and though hard to see the avocado gave it a serene taste as its custard like meat enveloped each bite
        and the best part was all the meats and cheeses were at room temperature and that really brings out the flavor,

        • Pokemania88

          oooooohhhhhhhhhhhh

    • Pokemania88

      But now you made me hungryy!!!!!!!

    • MelloMori

      Nice Sandwich, but the real question is what are you drinking with that.

      • EarthenWarrior

        maybe if you read the description you’d find out

        • MelloMori

          Maybe I did and didn’t see it since I’ve been studying for hours and my brain’s pretty fried. I actually did read that like 3 times and didn’t see it. I need a drink. What sounds better to you. White cap and coke, a double IPA, or a dark amber ale?

          • EarthenWarrior

            i’m not a drinker,

          • MelloMori

            Too young, or just not a fan of alcohol?

          • EarthenWarrior

            not a fan, also i’m the addictive type and i’m plenty fat and messed up, so blossoming alcoholism is one thing i don’t need

          • MelloMori

            Fair enough. But glad you enjoyed your sandwich.

    • Someone get the lotion.

      • EarthenWarrior

        just use mayo

    • Gikie

      Bruuuuh

    college does take a stall on people huh

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      EYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

  • NicoLito

    I really like that pokemon constellation pic. There should be an updated one with horoscopes

  • When Smash 4 comes out on Switch we better have a tourney for real

    • EarthenWarrior

      T_T we can have one now….

      • UEAH BUT I WANT TO DO IT ON SWITCH

        • EarthenWarrior

          Then at least say Smash 5
          we don’t want remakes we sequels

          • EarthenWarrior

            need sequels*

          • I’d take either

      • I am Kurusu!

        I can’t join well not anymore I gave my Smash 3ds to my brother for Easter

  • Just watch Dunkey beat Sky in smash like a year or what ever late but now I’m in a smash bros mood

    Midna for smash
    Shovel Knight for Smash
    Zelda BotW skins for Link and Zelda

    • I am Kurusu!

      Jibanyan for Smash!
      Paper Mario for Smash!
      Aiai for Smash!

      • When are you getting a Switch, Kurusu?

        • I am Kurusu!

          Hmm not sure probably Christmas to Birthday or if my parents scrounge up extra cash and put it towards that for me then when that happens

  • TheMonster6893

    I am going to be so pissed if we get to the end of this week and nothing happens. If I had to listen to Joe Merrick talk though this entire video for nothing then I may kill someone lol

    • I am Kurusu!

      And this is a direct reference to Stars with this randomly timed gift you can buy on thier main site

      • TheMonster6893

        The thing is I wonder what the actual game’s name is. “Stars” is supposed to be the code name so I doubt they’d name a merchandise collection after a code name lol

        • I am Kurusu!

          True

  • MenacingCascoon

    Who wants to join me and NL in smash we just need 2 more people

    • MenacingCascoon

      and NO it does NOT matter how good or bad you are. Its for fun

    • Hang on fam I’m coming

      • MenacingCascoon

        we need one more to make it four

        • Come on people

          • EarthenWarrior

            Nrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

          • MenacingCascoon

            Are you in?

          • EarthenWarrior

            i don’t wanna, but I can’t ignore my thirst for battle
            it will only end badly

          • MenacingCascoon

            Cool!

          • EarthenWarrior

            one fight… and the outcome better be good…..
            i’ll be on in a second gotta move some things

          • MenacingCascoon

            What’s your NNID?

          • Coldflare I think?

          • MenacingCascoon

            Ok I have you. Im making the room

  • Omg when did the Wii U game pad get so clunky

  • Holy crap,just seeing the thumbnail hits me with a wave of nostalgia.

    • I am Kurusu!

      Still wish after the other one they would’ve made a battle v.s. Dialga one

      • That’s a shame.Anyways, one thing I like about this is how in the Japanese dub, Chimchar has the same Seiyuu as Shigechi from JoJo Part 4.Also, I brought this up before, but I’ve been working on a Pokemon Mystery Dungeon fanfic for the past few months.I’ve gotten a good ways through it, but the only problem is I can’t think of a design for the main antagonist.

        • I am Kurusu!

          Ooo who are the protags? And who’s the antagonist?

          • The protagonists are me (as a Riolu) and my friend (as a Treecko).The main antagonist is supposed to be this deity-like figure that seems almost unbeatable.I already have everything that’s going to happen planned out.

          • I am Kurusu!

            You could do my antagonist a Darkrai

          • I kinda want something unique and not just some Legendary Pokemon.

        • I am Kurusu!

          I’ve actually built my own world similar to Mystery Dungeon where I am Pikachu who was a human, a Clefairy who lived in the village is my partner, I also travel with a Bulbasaur who is the son of the elder of the town Venosaur

          The three antagonists who are after me to get in my way are Chimchar, Misdreavus and Zoroark who are serve in the Shadow brigade

          Its a whole long ass story about me saving the world, but its very interesting if any one wants to here more tomorrow?

  • EarthenWarrior

    SON OF A BITCH RYAN
    My brother must’ve DC’d last time i let him smash online

    • oops will do next round. Dont have discord tho

      • MenacingCascoon

        Oh btw Earthen Runs win he wins so sorry it ended so quickly

  • Blitzin’ Arcanine

    So for the guys who’ve read adventures, what was your favorite arc?

    • RSE

      • Blitzin’ Arcanine

        Would you say the Emerald part is as good as RS

    • Armaggedon16

      Black and White is the best.
      Although I also really liked FRLG and DPPt.
      Yellow sucked

    • I am Kurusu!

      GSC arc for sure had almost all my favorites!

  • Woah Zero Suit Samus is so hard to play :0

    • Blitzin’ Arcanine

  • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      But honestly not sure, maybe 3 from what I’ve seen? Haven’t been around lately so idk.

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        I think it’s like four or five in the past three months

    • Damn, are you going to be ok?

      • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

        Status reads negative m’aam, diagnostics require me to get serious help from a counselor
        BUt hey, that won’t do shit
        I really wanna die sometimes.. fuck my life entirely

        • Fam seriously go get help if you need it. It may not feel like it helps but it’s better than nothing. Don’t make me worry about you 🙁

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            I would but I can’t go missing tests for stuff like my mental health…

          • Get sessions after the school day. Your mental health is more important than school

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            In modern day society, is that even the case anymore?

          • Yes. It is. Please go to therapy if you need to. There’s no shame in it

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            I really wanna take it up…. but than I’ll just put more pressure on ,myself due to scheduling…

          • For me I only went once a week or every two weeks

          • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

            I see…

          • And hey, school is almost over!

          • Well, you got your friends to help you not go insane.Why do you think I’m not a depressed, suicidal mess by now?

  • Wow I suck at smash

    • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

      Lemme smash

      • If you have Cascoon’s NNID you should be able to join the room

        • Sexually Aroused by Aardvarks

          That was a meme tho….

    Can I please bring a chainsaw to work? I’m so sick of being the one who has to fix my predecessor’s numerous mistakes every time I walk in
    I just truly feel I’m the only one in my department who actually does the job, I come in on days I don’t work to shop and get my schedule only to find my department a steaming pile and to add insult to injury the exact same stuff in the exact same place 2 days later
    And I bust my hump dissecting the in pile because you can’t even put stuff away efficiently without it being organized which takes my a hour of running back and forth moving stuff to make room and I don’t even get any praise from my superiors
    They see the place in a state of chaos and they seem to not care if this job is done right or wrong…and when somebody actually does it right they seem indifferent
    Hence why I want to murder my coworkers

  • Do you remember in an interview one of the creators of Sun/Moon talked about “different versions” being developed at the same time? Can someone tell me where to find this interview?
    He also said that the idea at the beginning seemed crazy, but they liked it at the end.

  • Mr. M

    When comes this Nintendo Direct?

    • Ice

      Usually Nintendo Direct is announced a few days prior, so I don’t see us getting anything. Although we might get a trailer of some sort once the full version of Corocoro comes out, which is tomorrow. Or today around 6 Central time in the UNited states, which is in about 11 hours.
