    Type: Flying
    Ability: Keen Eye/Gale Wings (Hidden Ability: Resonance)
    Stats:
    HP: 25
    Attack: 25
    Defense: 35
    Special Attack: 65
    Special Defense: 45
    Speed: 75
    Base Stat Total: 260
    Pokedex Entry: Although it possess wings, it is extremely poor at flying due to the weight of its wings compared to the rest of its body. It can run quite fast and is good at escaping danger. It is known for the sweet sound that plays through its harp-like wings as it runs. If it is cornered, it will create a shrill sound from its wings whilst screeching in order to harm its offender and call for backup.
    Evolves at: Level 19

    Pokedex Number: 46
    Harbilee (Harpy-Jubilee)
    Classification: The Innocence Pokemon
    Height: 3’01
    Weight: 65.3 Lbs
    Type: Flying
    Ability: Keen Eye/Gale Wings (Hidden Ability: Resonance)
    Stats:
    HP: 40
    Attack: 40
    Defense: 50
    Special Attack: 85
    Special Defense: 50
    Speed: 95
    Base Stat Total: 360
    Pokedex Entry: Harbilee is an extremely friendly and carefree Pokemon. No matter what happens to it, it will never turn violent due to its own will. This unfortunately leads to it becoming an easy target for malicious Pokemon and people who desire its food or its valuable string-like feathers. It will never fight back when it is abused but it will never forget its abusers. When it become filled with enough anger, it will patiently wait for to evolve…
    Evolves: When it learns Punishment (Level 38)

    Pokedex Number: 47
    Harpunish (Kinda self explanitory, wouldn’t ya say?)
    Classification: The Grudge Pokemon
    Height: 6’07
    Weight: 129.4 Lbs
    Type: Flying/Dark
    Ability: Vengeful (Hidden Ability: Resonance)
    Stats:
    HP: 71
    Attack: 90
    Defense: 78
    Special Attack: 115
    Special Defense: 78
    Speed: 63
    Base Stat Total: 495
    Pokedex Entry: This Pokemon remembers any suffering it experienced in its life and will hunt down anyone who had wronged it. A victim will be alerted by its presence when they hear the sinister tune that comes from its wings as it descends. If it happens to evolve without holding a grudge, it will instead fight to take revenge for other Pokemon that have been wronged in the past.
    Evolves from: Harbilee when it learns punishment (Level 38)

    Vengeful: If this Pokemon took damage within the current turn, its attack will do double damage for the turn.

    Blasting Volume: The user’s sound based moves do 1.5x times damage. Additionally, sound related moves that hit multiple foes do 1.0x damage.

    Notes:
    The entire line is based on harpies with literal harps for wings. In their previous forms they have a mostly white and baby blue color scheme but will gain a greyish and navy blue coloring when they fully evolve. In their first two stages they will frequently have their wings spread open but will tend to cloak themselves with their harp wings after becoming Harpunish. Interestingly enough, Harpunish only needs one of its wings to actually fly.

    Additional note: Blasting Volume is not a signature ability, it’s just the first Pokemon I’ve shown to have it so I’m explaining it here

    MY FINAL FAKEMON!!! For now

    Pokedex Number: 99

    Evolves at: Level 19

    Pokedex Number: 100
    Humivibri (Humming-Vibrate)
    Classification: The Fairy Bird Pokemon
    Height: 1’00
    Weight: 2.2 Lbs
    Type: Fairy/Flying
    Ability: Serene Grace/Speed Boost (Hidden Ability: Sap Sipper)

    Special Defense: 50
    Speed: 130
    Base Stat Total: 320
    Pokedex Entry: As it flies, its wings move at an unbelievably fast pace that allows it to travel miles in mere minutes. In order to satisfy the amount of energy it uses to fly, it consumes large amounts of nectar and Ribombee per day. It’s coloration will become more vibrant as it gets closer to evolving. Additionally, it will begin to require more nourishment.
    Evolves: When it learns Fiery Dance (Level 38)

    Pokedex Number: 101
    Solaphony (Solar-Symphony)
    Classification: The Sunbird Pokemon
    Height: 3’11
    Weight: 9.3 Lbs
    Type: Fairy/Fire
    Ability: Serene Grace/Channeler (Hidden Ability: Drought)
    Stats:
    HP: 45

    Defense: 40
    Special Attack: 130
    Special Defense: 80
    Speed: 170
    Base Stat Total: 495
    Pokedex Entry: Moments before it evolves, it will fly upwards at sunrise before encasing itself in a cocoon of light that bursts with a radiant flash as it hums a beautiful tune. This phenomenon is referred to as a “Double sunrise” due to the amount of light it emits. The flames that engulf its body are painless to all it does not desire to attack. Legends state that its burning feathers can be used to communicate with the dead.
    Evolves from: Hummivibri after learning Fiery Dance (Level 38)

    Channeler: Ghost type attacks act as STAB moves for the user.

    Note: There IS some lore to this believe it or not. Two of the myths involving hummingbirds in Mayan culture are that…

    The hummingbird is the sun in disguise who is trying woo the moon.
    Hummingbirds would piece the tongues of kings, which when poured on ancient scrolls and burned, ancient spirits would appear.

    To reference this, Solaphony has wings that resemble sunbeams and when they all are together, resemble the sun. Additionally, its eight tails all have feathers with a scroll/spell tag-esque shape to mimic the sacred scroll. (Ideally they’d say the word Sun in Kanji on them but I’m trash so….)

    This thing…. dies to priority so fast xD
    And trust me, there’s a lotta ways to kill this thing, so don’t worry about those stats for a moment

    Also it’s meant to be Harpunish’s counterpart

    • Monochrome Dream Eating Seraph

      *which when the blood was poured….
      way to go me

    • EarthenWarrior

      i like the hummingbird part but you lost me with the last evo

  • So wait can you still get Lugia and Articuno?

  • Ithsme?

    I heard somewhere on here yesterday that there may be a leak today, did that fall through?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I think it was a lie on twitter.

      • Ithsme?

        Ugh. Didn’t really expect anything, but I need something to absorb.

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    You should’ve left resseructing an article until Ho-oh :p

  • Govnah
    • Butter Geek

      Wth

    • Ithsme?

      Not gonna lie, I tried that but figured it might be hard to get off.

    • this just looks….wrong

  • Butter Geek

    @irvinap:disqus I added some details to my suggestion for your Grass Starter:
    Bapy (baby ape)
    Grass
    The Fruit baby pokemon
    They have a single fruit growing out of the palm of their hand. Many pokemon try to eat them, but they can easily run away.
    looks like a baby orangutan with green fur and a orange fruit with its stem growing out of the palm of its hand.

    Orangetan (Orange + Orangutan)
    Grass
    The Fruit Ape pokemon
    The fruit has grown into a small fruit tree in Orangetan’s hand. It can use the tree to hit enemies. It likes to rest and watch human entertainment.
    Looks like a small orangutan with green fur holding a small orange tree, standing on two legs.

    Gigantooluse (Gigantopithecus + Tool + Use (uses tools))
    Grass/Normal
    The Human-like Ape Pokemon
    The Fruit Tree has grown so big that Gigantooluse has to hold it with two hands. It uses the tree as a tool to build shelters or as a weapon in battle. It acts very simmilar to humans. Myths say some Gigantooluse learned to speak human!
    Looks like a giant humanoid ape with green fur holding a big orange tree.

    • Hmm it could work, but I think I’ll stick with my Racoon

      This is really good though

    • Luigi301

      the names are clever especially the last one, and idk the tool usage is giving off a steel vibe for me

  • Ultron

    Flaming rubber chicken

  • MenacingCascoon

    Man the legendary bird trio is so amazing. I would say I dislike Moltres the most but its still soo cool. It has so much Fire power going for it. Man I love flying types!

  • Luigi301

    Articuno has always been my favorite bird of the three. it just has the best design out of all of them. competitively zapdos is the best, but articuno just looks the best

    • MenacingCascoon

      Exactly how I feel. I love Articuno’s design, but I love using Zapdos in battle.I gotta say I diont like Moltres as much as the other two, but its still amazing

      • Luigi301

        honestly for me, fire pokemon designs dont do it for me. Ice has always been one of my favorites because of 1) the fact that they are blue 2) they are portrayed a lot as having this snow/ice shinyness if this makes sense and 3) a lot of water types can learn ice type moves and vice versa. i just love ice beam and surf together. always one of the combinations i use when playing a new game. same with like thunderbolt or earthquake

        • MenacingCascoon

          Thats seriously exactly how I feel about Ice types. Ice types always have this sort of beauty with them whether them being blue (my favorite color) or shiny like you said. It’s something about them just lookds so pretty and majestic-like. Its why I love Ice types. If only they were better in Battle they would definitely be my favorite type in the game.

          • Luigi301

            no joke, i could not have said it better. my exact thoughts and blue is my favorite color as well. majestic, pretty, beauty. you hit the nail right on the head

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Personally I like Zapdos best, https://images4.alphacoders.com/718/718581.jpg

      • Luigi301

        i mean dont get me wrong, zapdos is cool. I just prefer it in more battlign rather than its design. zapdos is too sharp a design which fits considering its typing and theme, just ice types really do it for me in terms of design

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I love all 3. Articuno has the best shiny. Zapdos is just my favourite, second depends on the art, but probably Articuno then Moltres, they are pretty much on the same level for me.

          • Luigi301

            I agree with the shiny. its not overdone like moltres’ its simple and whats better than blue? just a nice lighter shade of it

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Zapdos’ more vibrant yellow shiny is nice, just not that different. Moltres’ shiny looks eew to me. Articuno looks more Icey.

          • Luigi301

            exactly! i do not like that shiny moltres. personally i wouldve loved to see moltres with a blue flame cuz blue = hotter.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Zapdos best birb

  • The PinSir is back
  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Who the hell decided to make the weather TMs so expensive in SuMo? Someone hated BW OU much?

  • Luigi301

    another thing, i dont play go very much cuz i guess the whole AR didnt appeal to me as it did for many others, but seeing the birds and lugia in go makes me really want to play XD Gale of Darkness again

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I never got this one, I don’t remember why, I got Colosseum.

      • Luigi301

        i own both (while they arent in the best shape) by far some of my favorite games to play over and over and trust me i have. I love the concept of the game, i love the 3d of the pokemon at the time, the unique moves some pokemon got. just fun games all together. wish there was another. i remember buying BR because i thought it was another colosseum but it turns out it was more stadium then them

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Wes has one of my favourite designs and I like that he was kind of a bad guy to start with. Rui was pretty nice too. http://pm1.narvii.com/5748/a24d27f1083d4224fbbb38840466afafbafb77f6_hq.jpg

          • Luigi301

            i like his design too! also lol for some reason everytime i see Rui i immediately think its the girl from the [email protected] movie.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Shes reminds me of Rika from digimon, but happier and a bigger forehead. Especially when I see Rui (Ruki is Rika jpn name) I get confused

          • Luigi301

            lol i can see that

          • Monkeyfuzz

            She reminds me of Misty quite a bit.

          • Luigi301

            this game is definitely the reason why espeon is one of my favorite eevees, jolteon because i used jolteon in xd

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Jolteon is probably my favourite. Umbreon couldn’t be used to its’ full potential in this at all, Espeon had the edge over it. I really liked having both as ‘starters’ though.

        • MenacingCascoon

          How do you handle the big level jump in Colosseum? I never beat Colosseum (heck I think I barely got halfway) but I found out about the level spike no way young me could have done it. How do you?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Legendary Beasts, then repeatedly re-battle who you can. It is tedious.

          • MenacingCascoon

            I didnt get very far. I think my team was Espeon Umbreon Plusle and Entei ( I didnt know how to purify pokemon and still dont)

          • Luigi301

            i believe i always used misdreavus. she was so powerful with shadow ball i remember when my brother made her forget it years ago

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It is done through:
            Walking around with them
            Battling with them
            Massaging
            Daycare
            Time Flute
            Calling them when they go into Hyper mode.

            I forget what I used except Raikou.

          • Luigi301

            lol after playing for a while you would get excited when you saw your shadow pokemon’s gauge go down and knew exactly when they were learning their real moves

          • Monkeyfuzz

            And finally getting exp and actually levelling up.

          • Luigi301

            exactly. going to the relic was amazing and i loved the music that played too lol

          • Luigi301

            honestly i dont remember much in terms of the leveling. I dont ever remember finding myself failing to keep up with level besides the fact that a lot of the shadow pokemon have high starting levels

    • EarthenWarrior

      hehh i like how the great fairy locations are labeled thicc

      • I know you do, Earthen

        • EarthenWarrior

    • I relate to the “HOW DO I GET IN”

    • EarthenWarrior

      correct me if i’m wrong but has there ever been an energy beam sword for that varia blaster?

      • I don’t think so

        • EarthenWarrior

          i’m surprised they haven’t done that

  • This guy predicted the Nintendo Switch in 2015

      Wow he was really pretty spot on with that lol

  • The PinSir is back

    Ok whoever casted the English Dub for MHA is a genius. Izuku and All Might are fantastic.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Yeah the MHA cast is awesome! They’re really hitting it out of the park. I gotta catch up. After they jumped off the same day simulcast I lost where I was in terms of episodes. I think I only have one to watch, but I’m not sure lol

      • The PinSir is back

        What do you remember from the episode you last watched?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Is it censored?

  • TCRowlet

    I hope I can catch Moltres, but at least I got my favorite bird.

    Also it’s so fun finishing so far ahead of the pack that other racers get timed out and don’t even get to finish the race xD

    Omg I just realised our character tries to give Nebby to Lillie after catching it, but she declines.

    • Looks cool. I saw it yesterday.

      • I think it’s awesome

        • I don’t even have Yo-Kai Watch 2

    Jessie and Mimikyu get separated
    Mallow’s father does a tv interview
    And Ash and Lana meet a trainer with a Brionne

    • Mimikyu new form will be revealed watch

    • Mallow gets an Oranguru? (Hopefully)

      • EarthenWarrior

        It’s probably the interviewers (since they hold fans? And it would just hold the mic)

    • EarthenWarrior

      Way to puss out

    • I think actually there are quite a few holds barred

      • I hadn’t noticed.

    • Monochrome Dream Eating Seraph

      *proceeds to have holds barred*

  • EarthenWarrior

    Apparently Throh can learn Mat Block

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      It didn’t make sense being Greninja exclusive anyway tbh

      • Daedardus

        It’s a ninja move though.

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          It makes sense for Greninja, but there’s more more than one ninja Pokémon and martial artists have mats as well

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      It does fit Throh

  • Shit, I still need to finish Episode 30.This is my favorite ending in the show, btw.

      That sucks :/

      • Yep. Didn’t expect so many in a fucking computer science class.

        • EarthenWarrior

          well you have only one other choice…

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          I guess they thought it was a easier class just because there are computers

        • Daedardus

          Well, did you expect to pick up some hot chicks in a computer science class? 😛

          • Hey, you never know, it could always happen.

          • Daedardus

            After five years in engineering I know that all the semihot chicks in class already had a longterm boyfriend, until I once sat in bioscience engineering class. I chose the wrong major :P.

          • Well no but like. Idk. I think Kuppos right. It’s an easier class .-.

          • Daedardus

            What’s it like? Introduction to programming? Algorithms? Or “This is a mouse, this is Word, here you can type stuff using your keyboard.”

          No I’m very much done with them never listening to me about how the night people lazily cram everything into carts (even opened or damaged goods) and just leave it a gigantic mess for me to dig through, clean and organize and restock all by myself

          • Sunny

            Well anything that I will say won’t change your physical situation, but I am happy that you are at the least venting about it on this forum instead of actually doing something that you might regret.

  • ShinyXatu

    Happy August folks! By the end of this month, I will have begun to settle into community college…that’s a terrifying and exciting thought. We’ll most likely get Pokémon news this month, but with the end of the year approaching, I’m wondering when that Animal Crossing app will be revealed (as well as how). A Direct? A press release? And how long will they wait to release it?

    • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

      My game is back today :^)

      • ShinyXatu

        I’m extremely glad to hear that!…?!?

        • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Wait…..they’re bringing back that weird online games made by Cartoon Network? Very strange lol

          • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

            YEP! but cartoonnetwork has nothing to do with it, its made by the fans, theres two verisons one thats the OG game and ones a re imaging, heres the trailer for the re imaging

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            So what you’re saying is that they’re gonna get hit with copyright infringement lol

          • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

            nope, already had a meeting with the head of cartoonnetwork, they are allowed to use only characters from toonami(tom only)-amazing world of gumball, anything else the game will get shut down

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            That seems very constricted. To basically they can throw Tom into the Amazing World of Gumball and that’s it lol

          • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

            no the – means anything shows between that they can use

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            What does that mean then? That’s such a broad spectrum. Like anything that’s currently airing now, but nothing that’s been off the air for a specific amount of time?

          • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

            Like any shows that aired and ended( also had to be in game too) between those 2 shows they can use, like Dexter, Powerpuff girls, Johnny test, Regular show, Adventure time, Flapjack,Chowder etc

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            ah well that’s a lot of good stuff then. I wonder what shows they’re restricted against using. I guess the most popular shows on the network seeing as CN would want to profit off of them directly.

          • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

            they have a silhouette area (dont mind the larry david part it was during apirl fools and everything was changed too that)
            http://www.fusionfalluniverse.com/images/Legacy/News/Devblog/Eddy/ffl_eddy_endcard.png

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Hmmmmm another thing I wonder is if they’ll get the original VAs. Some of them might still be around, especially for currently/recently airing shows, but I imagine getting the much older show’s VAs will be tough.

          • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

            They cant get VA, they are using voice clips from shows sadly

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Ah that makes more sense I guess. I’d be willing to bet that’s a rule on CN’s list of restrictions.

          • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

            yea most likely but i guess if they can make it work it will be fine

        • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

          Also good luck with school my somewhat feathered friend

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      good luck with school! College really isn’t all that terrifying once you get into it. Just make sure to keep up with whatever work you have and you’ll do great. I’d be willing to bet we get Pokemon news sometime in the next week. With the 10th being the reveal day for that toy line I think they’ll show off whatever it is in official capacity before then.

      • ShinyXatu

        Thank you! I’m not too concerned because the difficulty should be way less than my high school. I almost thought that they might have a USUM Direct as soon as this week. It’s definitely about time, but I still don’t understand why they’re approaching news in this way. There already isn’t that much hype because of the Switch, so they should have been aggressive with marketing from the start.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Yeah. Honestly the amount of time they’ve been silent isn’t too out of the ordinary, but the lack of excitement for the games certainly is a problem for them. Especially if they really do end up being regular 3rd versions with nothing super crazy to offer.

    • ShinyXatu

      I’m going to respond to my own comment because I can. I can’t believe I didn’t think about this before, but I bet they’re going to use Apple’s “iPhone Pro” event next month to announce it like they did with Super Mario Run. Maybe it’s not as high-profile, but the timing does make the most sense.

      • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

        it would be very cool! and whats this Iphone pro?

        • ShinyXatu

          The rumored name of the iPhone 8 releasing this year, with a ton of new features like a screen over the entire front face (no home button/physical fingerprint scanner), double camera, etc. It’s going to be something else.

          • Armaggedon16

            “Screen over the entire. Front face”
            You mean like the s8

      I feel it should have a ‘t’ before the ‘o’, so it would be Malistocrat.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Hmmmm I don’t know about the physical fairy attack this thing is mostly a toxic attitude

        I’m indifferent with the name

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I think it flows better and makes me think of the Aristocrat part more. I kind of think Queenly Majesty might be a good ability.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I guess I mean this Pokemon thinks of itself highly and will do anything to stay atop the social food chain
            Even going far as to attack its own kind with its poison soaked tentacles

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        I agree, Malistocrat sounds better

        • EarthenWarrior

          Fine it’s changed

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Do we really need more low level Poison moves? We have Smog, Acid, Acid Spray, Clear Smog, and Sludge.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I just didn’t want sludge since it deals with clearer poisonous sweat

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Clear smog, Acid or Acid Spray could work then?

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Then why not Smog? It’s not liquid but it’s a vapour

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Like as in the same kinda runny liquid as sweat

          • EarthenWarrior

            Fine I wanted to give every type a new attack for low leveling

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            If you wanted to give poison a new early move it should be physical because the rest are already special

          • EarthenWarrior

            I thought of poison sting but ehhhh

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Poison Sting’s power is lower than my hopes to the future

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Maybe something to do with the tentacles. Poison Fang and Poison Tail aren’t that strong.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Why is it fairy?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Because I wanted to make the allusive Fairy/Poison type and I thought of some kinda snobbish high society women with those big over the top dresses and vile and despicable sense of vanity and self importance

        • MenacingCascoon

          But how does that equate to fairies?

          • EarthenWarrior

            It will have some elements of a witch in this one but this one was the result of the idea

            High society women with toxic attitude

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Makes sense tbh, older bitchy women are called hags

          • MenacingCascoon

            Then shouldnt it be dark dark instead of fairy?
            I mean I understand the High Society Women that attitudes, but that seems more Poison Dark than Fairy.

  • MenacingCascoon

    We will see some news within the first ten days. Get hyped! Im ready for some news.
    After using Moltres a bit it has amazing strength. It OHKOs everything

    • Ithsme?

      They can’t stay silent much longer. I say CoroCoro at the latest, but then again I was sure that it would make an appearance at E3.

  • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Theory: if Eevee gets another evolution, seeing as its Z-Move is called Nine Evoli Boost and Eevee has eight evolutions, it’ll be its last.

    And even then the nine could just be Eevee and its evos

  • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah
  • Monkeyfuzz

    Thinking about a new move, Mercy Strike, a Ghost version of False Swipe. The Pokemon attacks with a forceful spirit but leaves its’ opponent alive, having mercy on its’ soul.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Sounds perfect for Greaper

      • Monkeyfuzz

        You may use it.

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Gurrrl you’ve got a Reaper mon too? Let’s hear it

        • EarthenWarrior

          Sec

        • EarthenWarrior

          Greaper is the final form of my Ghostly Pkm

          Spectini Ghost
          Ghostalker Ghost
          Greaper Ghost/Steel

          Spectini a spectral Pokemon that has a habit of wandering endlessly until it finds a person it has the exact same aura and once it’s found it it will follow you until the end of your days (some reported them following infants)

          Then as it evolves its stalking habits get much more aggressive that if the person it’s following tries to outrun it it will scream and chase it down

          And finally after leveling up around 45 at night it becomes the harvester of souls, it hunts Pokemon with long sickle like claws, it has a coiled head that constricts and unfurls based on somebody’s life force

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Sounds cool, got the creepiness down. Generally I like it tbh, unique from Dusknoir.

            Mine is a complete 180, it’s a cute little hooded ghost who’s dedicated to reaping souls, but is generally bubbly and excitable. Hence why some spirits slip though. It has the ability Soul Custody which means that when it faints an opponent, it takes their stat boosts.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I mean they mean no harm (unless you try to get away from it) they just yearn for a companion that it shares that specific wavelength, it has the ability Ethereal Body which attacks that make contact a chance to miss

            And speaking of ghosts

            Draghoul and Drequiem my Dragon/Ghost zombie dragons, these Pokemon are practically immortal and their bodies never heal from wounds or damage but they continue to live
            Their only ability is Doom Stand where when fainted it has the ability to preform one last action for a solid turn but then faints afterwards

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      We need a variant that is anything but Fighting or another normal because got SOSing ghosts is dumb

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Yeah, I thought Ghost would be most helpful and doesn’t completely outclass False Swipe because Normal types are immune.

    • The PinSir is back

      We definitely need something like this. Even though Quick Balls are effective in some cases, it’s agonizing to try and catch a Shiny without having False Swipe available.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Yeah, it’s generally useful to have False Swipe for SOS and Legends too, so one that can hit different types better/at all is something I’ve been wanting.

    Best trial captain and why will it always be Mina?

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Cubone needs Battle Armour to Evolve into Alolan-Marowak with Lightning Rod right?

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      A lightning rod Cubone will evolve into a lightning rod Alowak

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Oh OK, it’s Rock Head that changes.

        • Yep the best Marowak is Rock Head imo

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I might use Lightning Rod, since it gives an immunity,

  • Daedardus

    My hype levels of USUM have sunk to enormously low proportions, I’m now of the believe that the game is nothing more than a quick cashgrab ‘remaster’ and will only get information a month in.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      If I wasn’t reminded of them here I’d probably forget they exist.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Same what are those Gamefreakites thinking, are they purposelessly starving us of info just to reveal something

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Earthen, every game has had droughts. For XY after the first trailer we got nothing but Sylveon for months (and even then we got a huge tease with its type), and SuMo was exactly the same as USUM is now except it was more hype because new Gen.

        • Meh, but at least we saw good leaks about starters for SuMo, we have had no solid sounding leaks for it at all

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Those good leaks came after actual news. Those leaked in June, after the two month + drought

          • I saw quite a few starter games tho

            Like the Ram, lizard and bear were around April/May I think

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Those were really obvious fakes tho?

          • I thought they were real

        • Daedardus

          The games release in three months.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Tell that to BW2

          • Daedardus

            With BW2 we at least knew what they were, they fucked up so much with USUM teaser and they aren’t taking any action at rectifying it. Seems to me like they don’t have a lot of good news to tell.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            All we knew about them was that they were sequels, just like we only know that USUM are ‘another’ story.

            And considering that sometimes ‘2’ might not even mean there related (see: Final Fantasy and XC) we still didn’t have that much to go on.

          • Daedardus

            But what does another story mean? It’s a lot less clearer than sequel.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            It literally means ‘another story’. We’re visiting Alola with a different story line. Probably not a sequel, and going off of Pokémon’s past, it’s a redo of an old one.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    What’s a good Lurantis set? (I know it’s not great but I want to use it in Moon).

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      In game, I used Leaf Blade/Leech Life/Brick Break or Poison Jab/Swords Dance with Scope Lens. It’d actually amazing in game tbh

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I need it to be useable after too because I’m breeding it shiny. I’m thinking about using a Contrary one.

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Thing is tho it’s only contrary move is Leaf Storm iirc, and Lurantis has higher Attack and a better physical movepool. Here’s Smogon’s set for it

          http://www.smogon.com/dex/sm/pokemon/lurantis/

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yeah they say to use it with Leaf Storm. They don’t have an expanded analysis so I’m really not sure I had thought maybe I’d use a contrary physical attacker that gets boosted by intimidate, or maybe mixed.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I am honestly relieved this thing was a total dud
      The minute I saw this thing I feared that it would have chlorophyll and wreak havoc with insta Solar Blades

    Ultra Sun/Moon – Revealed 6th of June, no info as of today, 1st of August 2017. The ongoing drought has been 56 days. That’s 18 less than Sun and Moon’s.

    Reveal to Release: 164 days

    Not only do we have shorter to wait from reveal to release, the drought still isn’t as bad SuMo’s, especially as we were way further from release.

    ‘But we’re unsure of what Ultr-‘ we were unsure about SuMo, a bunch of people for some reason thought it was Gen 6.5 or Kalos’ Johto. We’ve been told it’s an alternate story, and thus we’re being strongly pointed to the direction that it’s more of a retake than a continuation.

    We know that it’s probably a third version or even a complete change of SuMo’s story based on the phrase ‘another/alternate story’. It could even be a sequel, however unlikely. But GameFreak knows that for most fans, the story isn’t purely what sells it to them.

    The story might be amazing and make you want to get the game more or bad and make you want less, but GameFreak knows what ultimately sell is new features. Walking Pokemon, move tutors, new Alola Forms, new formes, etc.

    It doesn’t matter if it’s a sequel, prequel, alternate timeline, or an in-game musical to celebrate Lillie, Queen of the Multiverse, because it’s the features that are gonna sell the game and they’re not gonna start spilling the beans when there isn’t as much beans to spill.

    Could also be feedback to people bitching about how much the game was spoiled for them :v

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Heh, I remember the SM drought

      And it was torture because CoroCoro kept teasing us with crap like this

      http://media.pocketmonsters.net/news/2549/corocoroapril1.jpg

      • That was the most irritating thing for me

        Having the whitout effect

    • Ithsme?

      What you left out is that the game comes out in 3 1/2 months. When we first got real SM info, launch was still a good 6 months away. They could wait longer because they had more of a time cushion. While it’s true that there’s less to reveal this time around, it’s not smart from a marketing perspective for the company to keep tight lips on the games after the reveal provoked some negative response. Of course they don’t have to reveal anything, heck, they could technically stay silent until release, but that doesn’t seem logical from their standpoint, at least to me.

      As for that last statement, neither of the two poles is a good choice. On the SM hand, they ruined what they value most, surprise. On the USUM hand, keeping silent for this long has given ample time for people to form negative assumptions based on a rough first impression of the games. Just scroll a few comments down and you’ll see what I mean.

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        I did mention time to reveal for each of them to illustrate that USUM is coming out. In fact, my whole point is we’ve had less of a drought that SuMo and we have shorter to wait.

        And it’s fairly obvious that the reason that USUM has been silent is because they won’t have as much to reveal. They probably revealed it without the info because they know how restless their fandom is, especially coming off of a 1 year break.

        If they go for a SuMo style schedule, 3 1/2 months will be ample time to release info for a third version. It’s no reason to panic and boycott the game because they’re now used to being spoiled.

        BW2 were also revealed closer to release than normal, also had a fairly similar drought, and probably, to be honest, brought similar doubts. However, despite having worse sales, they’re regarded as great games full of content.

        • Ithsme?

          The fanbase can be quite impatient, myself included. I’ll give you that. And of course it’s plenty of time to reveal enough information. They could do it with a day until release. But my point isn’t that they can’t, it’s that they shouldn’t. You don’t exactly have to go on a magical quest to find that a large chunk of consumers are frustrated with the game as it stands and are jumping to unfair conclusions about USUM. However, much of that is derived from mass confusion. Let’s see here, they announce a pokemon direct that’s six minutes long, and tack on a new game “reveal” at the end of a 3 minute trailer for a game that’s been out for over a year. They proceed to talk about the game for twenty seconds with ambiguous wording about nearly every point, then say “stay tuned!” and go silent for two months. My point is, the drought itself isn’t the problem. The problem comes when a two month drought proceeds and rough announcement that left everyone confused.

          Maybe I’m just looking for a place to project my impatience onto, but from a marketing perspective, it’s a terrible decision. First impressions matter.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I do agree the actual reveal could’ve been a million times better. That teaser should’ve been by itself if they were going to do a teaser at all. But it’s still more info than we got for other game reveals such as BW2 and SuMo, which had very large draughts. At least they gave more info than they usually do, because we rarely get jack and shit. We’ve had tiny nuggets to speculate off of rather than nothing – which has lead to really cool theories like the Broken Akala theory, which would’ve been impossible with the standard ‘dump the titles and fuck off’ approach.

            Yes, this is subpar marketing. But people are severely overestimating what this means. BW2 sold shit for Pokemon games, but are extremely well received. And it still sold well and is a Pokemon game, so its not like a bad sale will cause the franchise to fail or decline in quality.

          • Ithsme?

            I completely agree with you on that last paragraph.

            I know we got some footage and all, but it’s all of the variables compounded together that make it a bad decision. But by that last paragraph, it seems we’ve already agreed on that.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Yup, defo agree it’s shitty marketing and GameFreak needs to wise up, but I’m pretty much doing damage control like this fandom does every time because I know that unless GameFreak becomes totally fucking incompetent at least some people are gonna like USUM regardless of what they said before

    • Uhh no. We knew what Sun and Moon was at least better than USUM

      It was pretty obvious that Sun and Moon was a new generation because of how they revealed it. 20 years of Pokémon, all the games, concept art. But with Ultra Sun and Moon, it could be a platinum version, sequels, alternate universe or something else entirely. It’s so infuriating

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Take yourself to online Web forums like Serebii and Bulbagarden, dig back to 2016, see all the arguments over whether SuMo was related to XY at all or not, and whether it was a ‘.5’ Gen or a completely new Gen. At least we know USUM is connected to SuMo.

        If it was a sequel, they would’ve said sequel. I might be wrong but to me the phrase ‘another’ and clips of things not in SuMo make it seem like it’s going to be an alternate take, not a sequel.

        • Sun and Moon being related to Kalos is vastly different.

          Sun and Moon was: It’s probably a new gen but it could be a Kalos sequel

          USUM is: It could be a third version, sequel, or alternate universe.

          And again, that’s all up to interpretation. The new flowers could mean a sequel in a more developed Alola, or it could be a third version like how Platinum vastly changed many areas making them prettier.

          Those Lycanrock and Mimikyu things could be cutscenes, Z-Moves or Trials and if it’s new trials it could be a sequel or an AU

          No one knows what the hell the games are. Sun and Moon were pretty obvious. They weren’t up to debate as much

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            SuMo were not obvious at all lol. The debates were worse than SuMo was, because people didn’t know what the region was based on, what the mascots would be (I even heard people suggest the Mega Charizards as mascots!!!) and we just came off of a full Gen with tons of insane unanswered questions.

            Whereas we know that USUM is probably an alternate take on the story of USUM (alternate universe and third version are pretty much the same concept, just different in how drastic they are)

          • Ithsme?

            Speaking of unanswered questions in SM, I better get some context here GF.

            What really is Type: Null?
            What’s the deal with Necrozma? (This one’s a given)
            Why are there so many unused locations?
            Why is Tapu Village in ruins?
            What happened to Poni island?
            and please, for the love of arceus,
            EXPLAIN THE ULTRA BEASTS

            Oh, and also explore tapu lore some more.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Tapu Village and Type: Null are answered in SuMo :v

          • Ithsme?

            Wait really? (the tapu village stuff I mean. I know Type: Null is an ultra beast killer but it wasn’t fleshed out well. What is it a fusion of? Who created it? Why is there one in sinnoh? RKS system?)

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Tapu Village: they put a supermarket in sacred land, Bulu destroyed the whole village in retaliation.

            Fusion: Cells. The documents at the Aether Foundation say that it’s cells used to give it access to all types, so it’s probably just an artifically made organic body or a chimera of body parts or like cells implanted into an embryo or something. (which GameFreak probably wouldn’t of wanted to mention in case peeps get angry over frankenstein mon)

            Sinnoh:??? There was never one in Sinnoh. They went to Sinnoh to research the myths on Arceus to work on inspiration of type changing.

            RKS: the memories probably activate the different type cells in Silvally, hence the name ‘memory’. It was most likely installed to be able to adapt to fighting Beasts any time.

            Creator: Faba. It’s all in secret Lab A in Aether Paradise.

        • Ithsme?

          To support your point, even Serebii labelled them under “6.5?” for a few days.

          Though, in retrospect it was pretty clear, since they went through all the generations in the reveal trailer.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Even then tho, that could’ve been taken as a thing for the anniversary rather than for. A totally new Gen.

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          People thought that SM was a related to Gen 6? Didn’t we saw in the reveal trailer a Pokecenter that was completely different from Kalos’, thus suggesting that is a different gen? lol

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            People thought the region would take us back to Kalos.

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            So they thought it was a new region plus Kalos?

            but

            New region: new gen

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Poké fans are weird lol. People thought the region was Southern France and it’d just be southern Kalos. I did mention other people thought it was like Johto, as in a new region with an old region taped on for sales in a new gen

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Omg the games are Called Sun and Moon and not Triangular X and hardy Y or XYZ or something like that lol

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Gold and Silver weren’t called Metallic Red and Blue

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Ok yeah, but I was arguing about the people who thought that SM was XY sequel. I already mentioned the two region argument in a previous comment :p

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            XY had a lot of references to the Sun. Sundial, Parfum Garden, Lysandre. NPC asked if a moondial exists, another mentions a group of people who weren’t team skull interested in the legendaries.

            Kalos doesn’t include much of southern France so people thought the new ‘region’ was just part of Kalos.

            The logic for the name connection was that you can use XYZ to place celestial bodies’ positions and shit, I never believed tbh

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Ah. But I doubt they’d change the name just for a few references here and there. And the southern part… since when the regions had to include the whole Country/Area/State

  • Well I battled Lucia in a 15 person raid

    Lost about 20 Pokémon and got it down to red before time ran out 🙁

    Weird how my 768 Umbreon survived longer than my 1892 Rhydon

  • Ithsme?

    “. . .featuring pokemon that didn’t appear in the original versions.”
    – Masuda, during the June direct

    Pretty sure this just means old pokemon not in the SM alola dex, as I don’t want to get my hopes up. However, technically all 802 pokemon can appear in SM, an the wording is quite suspicious.

    • Ithsme?

      Oops, didn’t finish.
      At this point do most people agree, or are you still holding out hope?

      • Holding hope

        And that Mantine will appear

        • Ithsme?

          I want to believe, but hope about the Alola dex has betrayed me once before.

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Still haven’t given up after the demo I see ;p

      • Ithsme?

        Haha, never. 😛

        I wanted to believe the latter, but since they haven’t revealed anything yet, it probably means the former. Maybe just worded that way for hype points.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I’m still thinking it’s just new alolan forms

      • Ithsme?

        That would still be pretty neat. Maybe we’ll see the rumored water arcanine and fighting alakazam?

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          I hope so, these two are the forms I wanted the most to see 😡

    • THIS IS MY POINT

      THEY WORDED IT SO VAGUELY

      THAT CAN MEAN LIKE 7 DIFFERENT THINGS

      • Ithsme?

        Yep. Then, while their fans are confused and slightly angry, they go silent for two months. And people wonder where the impatience comes from. Simple confirmation of a few points isn’t that hard.

    • Noooooo!!!! I don’t want a mess like Pokémon SMD

      • Ithsme?

        ??

        • Way too many to many to hold down

          And Quite a few will be too easy to catch or find

      • What was wrong with super mystery Dungeon

        Other than the fact that if you don’t have revived seeds you can get stuck at the final boss

        • They added all 721 Pokemon and made them way to easy to befriend

          In the originals you must battle foe’s that you have a chance to befriend, but it’s not guaranteed capture

          In SMD you just have to grab an item, escourt someone, save someone, or the rare chance of a boss battle you just get it

          Worse they give quite a few legends foe free and powerful helpers like giving Alkazam, Tyrantar and Charizard to you by just beating like 10 quests

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I’m pretty sure it’ll just be new forms and old Pokemon not in SM

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Pokémon BW2
    Revealed: 26 Feb 2012
    Released: 23 Jun 2012
    Reveal to Release: 118 Days (over a month less than USUM)
    Reveal to First Big News*: 48 days (only 10 less days than USUM’s current drought)
    FBN to Release: 70 Days

    BW2 got their first big news town months and a third before their release. Granted BW2’s reveal and release were closer, but if anything that’s worse because it gives you less time to prepare for them and have GameFreak less promotion time.

    *We were told about Black and White Kyurem, but that’s it. We didn’t even get a release date revealed for BW2 for the first few months.

    • Ithsme?

      I don’t know if the reactions are similar to USUM or what, but just because they made a similar decision a few years ago doesn’t mean it’s a good choice in their current market. Stop trying to justify their marketing incompetence.

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Games still sold relatively well and got great reviews lol

        • Ithsme?

          Oh absolutely, I’m not saying that their marketing equates to the quality of the actual games (if it didn’t we’d be in trouble).

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Yeah I think people are freaking out about the lack of news for no reason. I’m more concerned about the nature of the games rather than how much pre-released info we get.

      • Daedardus

        I think the fear mostly comes from them being silent. Like, the games are not so good so they try to hide that fact and prepare for a very short advertising cycle so the negativity does not completely burn the game out. But seems like it might be backfiring whether the games are good or not.

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          If the game was total trash, why would they even release it when they’ve been working on PokeSwitch? They’ve taken gaps before and if they were really shitting themselves about it being bad they could’ve just made a third version with a battle facilities or something and the fandom would coo over it

          • Daedardus

            Nobody knows how these things are negotiated. Maybe Nintendo wanted some 3DS games still the ride out the console and ordered GF to produce some new games on a tight budget and time schedule.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Then why wouldn’t they just jazz up Sun and Moon and slap on some post game stuff rather than going for the ‘alternate story’ thing that means they appear to be changing up more (like us having an Ula’ula Z-Ring and the cutscenes with multiple Pokemon)

            Inb4 USUM are just what I described lol

  • The more I think about it, the more I realize that USUM will probably sell terribly.

    – Third Versions always sell less
    – Tiny tiny window to get people hyped (Sun and Moon had 8 months, USUM has 5 months. Or actually 4 since they wasted a month)
    – Many people will just wait until Pokémon Switch instead of buying an extremely similar game for an outdated system

    • Daedardus

      They will probably take the crown for worst-selling main games, taking over from BW2.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Technically 3 and a half months for USUM lol

    • Ithsme?

      For a pokemon game? Yeah. For a game in general though? Nope, they’re pokemon games. They’ll sell like hotcakes, even if GF makes Pokemon Yes and No, marks them up to 100 bucks a piece, and releases them on the GBA.

      Having “Pokemon” in the title is a huge cushion for them.

      • Ithsme?

        However on a more positive note, sales aren’t really what we care about. Emerald and Platinum didn’t sell that well yet they’re considered to be some of the best games. BW2 is widely considered better and sold worse than BW.

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Tbh, why do people here care so much about the sales? Pokemon always sells millions, so it’s not like the franchise is going to crash and burn if they dip a bit. It’s the quality that matters imo.

      Black 2 and White 2 had a shorter timeframe to hype, didn’t have any new gimmicks like Megas, Alolans or Z-Moves they could adf mid Gen, and didn’t come out straight after Pokemon GO and other anniversary promotion that put Pokemon back into the limelight.

      • It’s the precedent. Video Game industry people are very stupid when it comes to figuring out why games don’t sell.

        Notice how much content was packed into B2W2? Then it selled trash. So they figured no one cares about crazy post game stuff which isn’t true

        • Ultron

          And then we got X&Y with practically 0 post game

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Gold and Silver sold amazing with a large post game but less than Red and Blue then we got Ruby and Sapphire which had trash post game.

          You can apply that to any dip in the franchise.

          • Ultron

            Was there even a post game in R/S? I never even thought about it

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Pretty much just catching a few legends, so arguably worse than XY depending on your opinion.

        • Ithsme?

          I fear what might happen if USUM is similar. Great games (yay), but bad sales (boo). We already know GF is very fragile when it comes to extra content. If games that go above and beyond sell poorly, it might be the nail in the coffin.

      • Daedardus

        Share- and stakeholders in a company decide otherwise though. It’s all about relative performance, and if something underperforms you can be sure there will be people fired or replaced at top positions.

    • Ultron

      I fuckin said this the other day and everyone shit on me

      • Ithsme?

        It’s a never ending cycle.

        Person A: I want USUM news.
        Person B: Don’t be so impatient.

        Person B: I want USUM news.

        And the cycle continues.

        • Ultron

          Literally this

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    My main hope for USUM is that it’s actually worth buying. Since it’s reveal I’ve been concerned that it’s just SM with a new coat of paint. If it has a decent story change up and has a bunch of features that SM didn’t have then maybe it’ll be worth it, but if it’s just SM with Necrozma shoehorned idk about that……

    • Ultron

      Yeah no one wants third versions ever since they did B2W2 so hopefully they’re in touch with their fanbase. But who am I kidding? They never fucking are

    • Ithsme?

      Oh come on, it’s pokemon. All of us here will buy it no matter what. Even the “re-skins” are considered fantastic games.

      That being said, since we know virtually nothing, I fear that USUM may have been an afterthought to pad the 3DS’ line-up as well as calm the fans until Pokemon SW.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        The problem is that the other 3rd versions weren’t released a year after their original games. If USUM is just SM but with minor changes then what was the point of playing SM in the first place? It made sense for the others as there was enough time between the games that it felt ok to release an updated version of the games. This time it’s just feel like a middle finger to the face

        • Ithsme?

          And this here is EXACTLY my point. You’re confused about what the games are, which has provoked a negative reaction and assumptions about the game. I rest my case.

          (Sorry for using you as evidence, but I saw my chance. xD)

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            It’s…….Fine……….listen I understand my confusion. I’m willing to keep an open mind until we actually get info, but what the actual games end up being is a huge deal. It could make or brake them

          • Ithsme?

            Sorry if my response was a bit out of the blue. It’s nothing against you, I know a lot of fans are confused (heck, I am too. It’s fair to say we all are), but when false assumptions start to emerge, that’s when their “strategy” backfires.

            And I totally get what you’re saying. Since they haven’t revealed anything, it does raise the question of whether or not they have that much to reveal.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            It’s fine no offense taken. Anyway again I’d say it’s the impression they gave us in the first trailer that’s more concerning than the lack of news. BW2 had basically 2 maybe 3 months max of actual news before it came out. So saying that we won’t get a lot in the game because of such a small pre-release period a bit silly.

          • Ultron

            Yeah really the issue lies with Gamefreak NOT communicating what we should be expecting. Speculation is only fun when we have something to go on

      • Ultron

        If I had to guess, I would say that USUM is just padding until they can put out the Switch version. So I’m gonna guess that they may not even be that updated :/

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          I’m not sure they need padding like that tho. It’s not like they’ve never taken a year off before. They can do whatever they like honestly. If you concider every non first game of each gen as padding then there’s no point in having them at all. They all have their own places for better or worse. That’s just my opinion tho lol

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    ‘Wow Platinum is so good’
    ‘GameFreak give us another third version and I’m boycotting’

          Yep, same (well, not Incineroar, but I have standards, you know). As it stands, I think I’ll use an early game mon as my pseudo-starter.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Inci is amazing, but I wouldn’t expect a Deci fan boy to understand

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5b21b99d7279463abcbee81b013a97e9eb855cd93b5998d07aa42c5bf9da4ac8.gif

            :p

          • Ithsme?

            Pssh, no way Incineroar could do that with hands bigger than its head.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Real talk, all three Gen 7 starters have disgusting hands

          • Ithsme?

            Fair enough, but they’re comically large. It seems like more of an oversight than a design aspect to me (but then again I’m not sure how you couldn’t catch something like that).

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Inci and Prim have yaoi hands

            Deci either has thin wide feathered fingers or prehensile feathers and both disgust me

            Hopefully what they get in USUM is better hands

          • Ithsme?

            What if they just get human hands.

            GF: We’ve heard your complaints about hands now shut up about it

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            They all get featured in the ARMS prequel: HANDS

          • EarthenWarrior

            i dunno i liked Dartrix’s feathery fingers maybe if they didn’t look like planks it would be better

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Dartrix’s look better because they don’t have to handle a bow and arrow, Deci’s fingers are a necessary evil

          • Primarina and deci dont have hands

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Who cares tho?

            Primarina has flippers, that’s what I was referring to. They’re still hideous.

            Deci has fingers that it uses to operate their bows and arrows. Still hideous.

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Prima’s hands aren’t bad ?

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Yaoi flippers

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Bad thing it is?

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Yes, they’re ridiculous and clash with the elegant design

            All imo

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Why you said imo? Now I can’t make a counterargument due to the subjective manner of the matter ::::(((

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I enjoy making you all. Suffer >:)

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Eeeeeeeviiiiil

          • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

            Don’t knock it till you try it

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I found that unlikely tbh, I probably think that they’re just focusing on the “new” mons, the new storyline, the legendaries and a few new features here and there

    • Ultron

      Nope, and I plan on skipping them

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Saaame, Deci is boring asf I’ve used Inci twice and I’ve used two fairies in most of my SuMo playthroughs so I’d like to avoid using one unless it’s new

        • Ultron

          I just get burned out on the starters real quick…

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            There’s some I can use forever and some that I just wanna toss immediately (*cough Jolly Primarina cough*)

          • EarthenWarrior

            yeah some just don’t do it for me
            sometimes i just want to just grab a Sandshrew or a Cubone off the streets and just use that

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Just do it

            Breed a Kantonian Sandshrew and trade it over

          • EarthenWarrior

            As much as i want to the rules are the first playthrough of any mainseries game must be from the local region’s national dex

            but i’m really considering the Jangmo-o

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Omg no do Jang its cute

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            *do it

          • EarthenWarrior

            but it feels like cheating i mean it’s just too cliche to give yourself a Pseudo Legend baby at the start of the game
            but Jangmo-o learns shit and will have to rely on TMs unless i give it Dragon Breath

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Really? I’ve never heard of anyone doing it and tbh it’s not like you’re going to make the game that much easier than it would be already

          • EarthenWarrior

            well i hear so many stories of people sending over practically all their entire team in the beginning of the games and often all shiny

            i try not to be so frivolous since i prefer starting from the ground up (no pun intended)

            but this Jangmo-o thing really ticked me off

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I’d just do it, it’s just one Jangmo-o. It evolves relatively late anyway so it’d be a challenge raising your little warrior into a mighty paladin, and it’s not like it’s a 6IV shiny with all egg moves. It’s just a lil cutie to be your starter

          • EarthenWarrior

            Alright fine but it will be
            Male
            Soundproof
            either Timid or Modest
            in a Heavy Ball or Level Ball
            and will know Dragon Breath
            IVs whatever and no EV investments

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Do ett

          • EarthenWarrior

            i was gonna send an egg but i don’t want to risk it being female

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Save the game, hatch the egg, reset. Egg values are based on when you get it, not when it hatches. If you trade it, it’ll stay male.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Prolly new Z moves. I’d say new animations a mixed bag now in this day of 3d models. It’s hard to say

    • Sunny

      They’ll have Ultra forms. Haven’t you been watching the trailers on YouTube?

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Sadly

      • EarthenWarrior

        I’m really debating if i like that idea or not
        first of all these Ultra Forms could just be a load of hoo-ha and just be ginormous cocktease just for box legends

        and wasn’t there a tweet saying that these forms weren’t exactly Solgaleo and Lunala

        there’s just such a painful lack of what exactly is going on

        • Sunny

          That is what I think. I was just making a reference to the trailers jokingly.

    • EarthenWarrior

      i doubt we’ll get anything fancy since they wouldn’t bother making new animation when its cheaper and lazier to re-use them
      but that being said i want them to fix Incineroar’s idle animation so he doesn’t have his arms out like a weirdo and haves them crossed

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        This guy slaps your girls ass at the PWT wud?

        • Ultron

          My Vespiquen stings its feet to match those meat grabbers

  • Ithsme?

    I remember back when there were like 10 pokemon revealed and everyone had already planned their team. I waited until the dex leaks, but even then, I only used 1/3 of my planned team in the real game.

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      I was gonna use everything and then just chucked it all and went sooo off course tbh XD

      I can never plan, I just find it boring to follow it and I can never follow it anyway :p

    • Sunny

      For me there was only one big change up for my team during the run and it was one fueled by rage.

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Pray tell? :0

        • Sunny

          Mimikyu decidedly became my favorite Pokémon and still is now. So when it took me two hours to see my first wild Mimikyu, only for my Araquanid to critical hit it to death. I was quite frustrated to the point that I boxed Araquanid…forever.

  • Haxford

    I wish Delphox’ 3d model wouldn’t suck so much. It’s my favorite Psychic-type, but its in-game model is so bad.

    • Ultron

      I’m triggered thinking about it

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      It was R O B B E D

    • Pokémon that look better in fan art are the most heart breaking ones to me.

      THE POTENTIAL

    • EarthenWarrior

      for second it looked pregnant for some reason….
      Can Pokemon even be pregnant?

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Eggs

        • EarthenWarrior

          i know but still the process is still stupidly unknown
          GET OFF YOUR FUCKING ASS ELM AND FREAKING FIND OUT WHERE THEY COME FROM

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I think it’s just simplification of what would actually happen, I’d reckon most Pokemon would multiply like their actual basis

          • EarthenWarrior

            i know

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      It’s design really isn’t that bad, but it’s model males it look flat and unattractive. Tis a shame since both Fennekin and Braixen look good in game

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Maybe it could get a better model in the Switch

    • Ithsme?

      The real question: why does every fire starter need to become a biped? Or at least partially?

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Because GameFreak wants to give them a leg up on the competition 👀

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        I think that it’s a coincidence and they haven’t paid much attention to that

      • Haxford

        Really wished Torracat stayed on all fours once it evolved

        • EarthenWarrior

          i really wish Torracat’s butt wasn’t so disturbingly round

        • Ultron

          Why is Torracat so perfect

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Because the domestic cat is perfect as a species

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Way better than dogs

          • Ithsme?

            Strike three.
            *hovers over “block user” button*

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    What’s an underrated Pokemon you really, really like?

    Kanto Muk is my baby

  • Daedardus
    • EarthenWarrior

      i personally want some new small bowls for snack foods and fruit

      • Daedardus

        I want arcade machines back.

  • Splatoon 2 gear cheat sheet
    https://imgur.com/a/PqbW7

  • EarthenWarrior

    so a little weird question
    Do you guys have a pokemon crew? like you have a few select pokemon that fulfill specailized tasked such as Egg Hatching (or i call Egg Nannies) via Flame Body or Magma Armor or pokemon that steal stuff via thief and so forth

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      It had a Hydreigon that would always be used for level grinding in the XY restaurants and I use Flavia the Talonflame for Thief and Flame Bod

    • I have a foreign Talonflame I’ve used since X and Y and a Roserade that I used for horde battles when EV training or completing the ORAS dex

    • EarthenWarrior

      Talonflame for egg nanny-ing ( wish Numel had Magma Armor i can easily see a adorable Numel hold eggs over the hole in its hump)
      Machamp for Horde EV training
      Vileplume Sweet Scenter
      Sycther and Marowak SOS hunters
      Dittos all with Adamant, Modest, Jolly, Timid, Impish, Bold, Calm, Careful all in Repeat Balls which look like helixes
      A. Exeggutor aka Kuluko for frisking stuff

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I have Talonflame in gen 6 and Magmar in 7 for Flame Body. Butterfree with Compound Eyes and Thief for item hunting. A Poison Heal Gliscor with False Swipe and Skill Swap Alakazam for SOS hunting, though I’ll probably switch the latter at some point. I have synchronizers for every nature in various forms. I also have 6 lv 100 pickup pokemon, which allow me alot more Big Nuggets, Heart Scales, Max Revives etc. I also use Surf/ Pick-up utility Linoones in gen 6 and Dive/Fast Surf Sharpedo in ORAS.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Linoone used to be my Sapphire Heart Scale stealer
        she made it all the way to 64 all on Luvdics

        i’m surprised Covet wasn’t a Fairy move

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It would seem to fit Fairy more. Linoone is possibly the most useful of the HM ‘slaves’.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Linoone…….the more i read it its one of those names that look weird

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Before the anime I thought it was like linen+noon, not line+noon.

  • Sunny

    I’m so hyped for Misty!
    https://youtu.be/TaPUBC43sFg

  • EarthenWarrior

    I just had a scary thought what if in USUM they get rid of the fence!

    • Sunny

      You mean the fence at the ranch?

      • EarthenWarrior

        They very same!

        • Sunny

          Are you worried that the Pokémon will run wild and destroy Akala Island?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Do i look like i care about the safety and well being of others?!
            I wanna fucking hatch my fucking pokemon in a convenient fucking location

          • The fence sucks. Lumiose is better

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            The fence is better if you’re able to constantly press, Lumiose is better for set and forget.

            The fence is probably the fastest way to hatch Pokemon

    • Sunny

      Or do you mean the one that you need proof of completing trials and prevent you from going to certain areas?

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      If they do this I’ll riot

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      No. That fence is my husband

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Like for breeding? Just do it outside? As long as you do it in a circle outside to the left you have plenty of space. Also you don’t have to keep getting on and off to talk to the breeder that way too

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I don’t use it, it isn’t that good tbh.

  • Daedardus

    When you feel like trash so you put on some Nickelback so you at least feel comfortable knowing you’re surrounded by peers.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Doesn’t listening to Nickelback make your ears bleed? Lol

      • Daedardus

        No, I’m already braindead so it doesn’t matter anyway.

  • Shady

    All these theories about Infinite and no one said anything he could bring those character from other dimension (the past) …..that’s clarify y Shadow id evil again, sometimes I feel I want to make my own youtube channel but I don’t give a shit. http://t02.deviantart.net/484VkDquqoy9OkbQ3rk36Yfb_qQ=/fit-in/700×350/filters:fixed_height(100,100):origin()/pre05/79c8/th/pre/f/2017/207/7/9/i_n_f_i_n_i_t_e___sonic_forces_by_yukiartofficiel-dbhpu5f.jpg

    • Monkeyfuzz

      More likely an evil Tails.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I would love for you to make a YT channel you can use a voice modulator and just talk about random scary shit

      • Shady

        Not bad idea

  • Dicie

    Anyone wanna play some Splatoon 2… 😛

    • EarthenWarrior

      ask in maybe 20 minutes

  • EarthenWarrior

    well out of boredom i bred my young warrior prince
    http://img03.deviantart.net/aab4/i/2016/250/d/a/jangmo_o_by_notawesomeaki-dagtmrc.jpg
    twins actually both male in heavy balls Modest with Dragon breath and have the exact IVs 5Ivs in everything but SpDef but it’s pretty good so it’s nearly perfect and i decided Bulletproof

    so now i gotta decide which young paladin will make the cut maybe the hidden power will decide it

    • Monkeyfuzz

      If you give me one I can breed you a perfect spread for you and trade it back as an egg if you like.

      • EarthenWarrior

        nah i want it this way, this is for USUM

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Well you could keep it in the egg and trade it to that later. That way you prevent over-leveling easier.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            ^This, overlevelling suuuucks

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Especially because if it’s too high it won’t listen to you without your OT.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I kinda want that i see Jangmo-o is that brash hot headed vigilante type who’ll bite on more it can chew when fighting opponents and though Modest doesn’t really project this kinda personality but who cares

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Yeah but is just gonna make your game go piss easy piss hard piss easy, especially with the IVs

          • EarthenWarrior

            yeah that’s why i didn’t want to did it, but who cares i want to use Jangmo-o and this’ll be it

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I still don’t get why you wouldn’t just send it as an egg :p

          • EarthenWarrior

            I just want to make sure it’s at least male with everything in a good place, i probably won’t trade it until the first trial is over

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Earthen, if you save before the egg hatches its details will still be the same because its data is determined when its received as an egg in the original game :p

          • EarthenWarrior

            well that sounds time consuming and tedious

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Not really? You literally just breed Jangmo-o eggs, and if one pops out male, you remember what egg it was and then keep the egg to trade. Takes like two minutes?

          • EarthenWarrior

            i already hatched them and one of them is HP Steel

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Eww Flash Cannon ftw

          • EarthenWarrior

            well i’m not gonna get that until it evolves just imagine this as Flash Cannon’s little cousin

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I know you won’t get flash Cannon for ages but still

            Eww

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I like that you have a story set in mind for it. Well the offer is there, even if you want to hatch it in SM so it has your name on it then trade it over you’d still get that.

          • EarthenWarrior

            you kidding i give all my pokemon personalities and backstories
            (although i feel that my wild and restless personalities get used too often trying to work on it, also plenty have tried to steal my bag)

    • MenacingCascoon

      Are you Pokemon sexist?

      • EarthenWarrior

        i am actually

        • MenacingCascoon

          Shame. Why?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Because i see some pokemon as male and or female and i prefer that some species be male and others female (but mostly Male)

      • Somewhat

        Like I normally look for certain genders on certain Pokémon like

        Vivillon- Female
        Yungoos- Male
        Heracross- prefered Male for horn pattern, but I also will take female
        Sneasel- Will only take Male’s

        So on and so on

        • EarthenWarrior

          yeah that rounded heart pattern bugs me so much i need those powerful prongs

          • Yeah like if I get Females of one I’m a little bummed only cause it doesn’t fit the powerful theme

            Unless trying to make a very personality based team and need a tough female

          • EarthenWarrior

            yeah and you know how important Heracross is to me

  • Butter Geek

    Here’s my baby girl for USUM. I thought I might as well breed one for it seeing how usum will probably have near same Pokemon. Still debating if I should use shiny yungoos ( it’s level 18)

    • Butter Geek

      I kinda wanna breed a shiny starter for USUM. Maybe try and make a female shiny Poplio

    • EarthenWarrior

      eww that pink thing is disgusting and do you really want to use such a disgusting wad?

      • MenacingCascoon

        Green* and yes. Its not as gross as kommo-o. Plus I like it. Probably top 10 Mons of gen 7

        • EarthenWarrior

          i was referring to the yungoos
          this should’ve been the shiny

          • MenacingCascoon

            I hate Fan shiny Pokemon. I think they are so pointless. There are a billion ways to male every shiny look better. And I really like gumshoos its probably my favorite early rodent. Too bad mine has stakeout

          • EarthenWarrior

            gross……just……eww….

          • MenacingCascoon

            Yea kommo-o is pretty gross

          • EarthenWarrior

    • MenacingCascoon

      And its planned move set is gonna be Sunny Day/ Solar Blade/ Solar Beam and filler. I hope it works out. I’m planning to teach my Litten Sunny day too

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Yoo don’t know how many people are on rn but @BigGuyI:disqus guess this might interest you? Basically I was considering using discord to make a smaller fanmade content thing for us disqus users?

    Basically, you’d spam it with your fanart, fanmons, even fanfiction if you want to (eww) and you just get feedback. You don’t even need to make things, you’re just expected to give feedback if you join.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      So you guys are making a discord channel?

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Maybe, I want Fanwork creator’s opinions on it.

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          That’s a really good idea tho

    • EarthenWarrior

      you assume i only make NSFW fanfiction

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        What? Nah fam I know you write actual stories, the eww was mostly a joke.

        So what do you think of the idea? I’ll need to chase up the others later

        • EarthenWarrior

          no i most do NSFW 😀
          so far i got like 5 stories in the making

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Oh okay, I was meaning that you could share your game stories and stuff :l

            But seriously dude, does the idea of somewhere you can literally dump all the fanmade shit you want appeal to you?

          • EarthenWarrior

            why would I when i already do that here

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Because you’re guaranteed feedback because it’s the whole purpose of the channel. You’re also free to post as much as you want.

            Because there’ll be less traffic than the main site, if you ask for opinion people can actually find it instead of it being drowned. You’re also not gonna clog up the comment section with Fakemon which I know some people don’t appreciate. You don’t have to stop posting Fakemon here, the channel is pretty much for concept work and feedback before the final product, as well as sharing concepts and stuff you might not want to share here (like ‘is this idea stupid’, etc)

    • Disqus? I think that’s the one I use so I’ll join link me plz

    • I’d totally use it. :0

  • People posted their favorites I guess so here is my favorite Pokémon that I have. My shiny Lopunny named Cotton! Though I kinda want to hunt one in Platinum and get as many ribbons as possible

    • MenacingCascoon

      When did people post their favorites? Anyway Lopunney is a nice Shiny even better in mega form

      • Oh I saw you and earthen I guess I misunderstood. Oh well.

    • Oh and while I have you

      For Jade Jungle are we allowed to make Evolutions for Pokémon like Komala?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You could just get all the hoenn ribbons and wait for remakes.

    I’m so nervous I have a phone interview for a possible freelance job tomorrow morning…………I hate talking about myself, but I guess I gotta do what I gotta do. I’ve done other freelance stuff, but this is the first time I’ve done something without it being through someone I’m super familiar with………

  • Monochrome Dream Eating Seraph

    Back again

  • The PinSir is back

    That very awkward moment when you log back into your old Disqus account you haven’t used in 2-3 years.

    • Luigi301

      is it one you used here? cuz tbh i dont recognize your username lol

      • The PinSir is back

        I’ve only been on this site for not even a year yet lol

        The old one I used on Anime Haven (when it was still active and going strong). I think the last thing I remembered commented on was when I was discussing episode 24 or 25 for Soul Eater.

        • Luigi301

          oh ok. youre a newer user. sorry. i started using this site almost 4 years ago. and i stopped for a while but stayed in the chat.

          • The PinSir is back

            Nah you’re fine

  • UnburdenedLegume

    3rd Lycanroc form reveal will be a huge L to those sceptics who told us that the ”?” on Pokeshopper is just Totem Lycanroc lmao. Because Ash will run around Alola with a gargantuan Lycanroc ok

      It’s have been a long time since I didn’t get a joke 😛

      TL;DR I don’t get it :T

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        oh wait

    • So wait is the reveal huge? Or is the Lycanrock evolution huge?

      • Sunny

        Taking Verlisify seriously. I’m worried. Have you gone delirious from the drought Star?

        • Well I assumed he got it from some leak

      • Daedardus

        The reveal will be huge. Literally. Like, it will be projected on a very big screen.

        Not…….what I meant……

        • EarthenWarrior

          I already paid for them I’m not letting them go to waste

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Just have fun and don’t get caught then lol

            You know one day you could actually go on a rampage and tell us about and I would never know if you were joking or not

    • Persona Q2 was apparently also announced, but it doesn’t look like they released a trailer.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Curious about this supposed 3rd Lycanroc form. I wonder if its a dual type or just pure Rock like the other two?

    • EarthenWarrior

      I don’t know hopefully my Shiny Rockruff can be integrated with it if it exists

    • Sunny

      Inb4 it will be the first Rock/Rock type. All of it’s weaknesses are quadrupled but it’s stab is still the same.

    • Ultron

    • Daedardus

      That’s a tiny bird.

      • TCRowlet

        Tiny but packs a punch 🙁

    • The PinSir is back

      Great job on getting it!

      • TCRowlet

        Thank you!

  • The PinSir is back

    So how many birds have you caught so far? Have you caught both Articuno and Moltres, one of the two, or none at all?

    I’ve had the worst luck in finding a Legendary Raid near me, so none so far.

    • TCRowlet

      I’ve caught both Articuno and Moltres. Took me 2 raids each to catch them. Tried a Lugia raid, but failed at catching it.

      • The PinSir is back

        That sucks about catching Lugia

    • None, but attempted Lugia yesterday and the 15 person group got destroyed (then again it was primarily 9 year olds who were like lvl.13)

    Over the course of its life these pokemon change forms, like they suddenly discovered something. Its not considered evolution. This pokemon has a strong connection to the space.

    Signature Ability:
    Discovery and Change
    If a battle is longer than 5 turns, Copernismos changes into the Psychic/Fire Heliocentric form, its Sp stats are boosted

    YALL I JUST BOUGHT A SWITCH!!!!!!!!!!! IM SO EXCITED!

    • Deerlia

      It’s a lot of fun, hope you got Zelda, ARMS, or Splatoon 2, deer~

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        I only got zelda to start out with since the whole thing was so much money. I figured BotW could last me a while until I can pay back the credit card company (aka my parents because its their credit card)

    • Ultron

      Yayyy!

  • Deerlia

    Yesterday was a first step with the interview, my goal was to either get hired or do well, i can at least say i did well… still waiting on the hiring part…

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    Do yall think pokken is worth it?

    • Nah

    • Monochrome Dream Eating Seraph

      Dx yes
      Pokken normal, not in the slightest

  • Perfect!
    I have a Fever of 101.5, chills, super drained and tired and my menegitis shot has swollen even worse

    My life needs to stop doing this to me

  • EarthenWarrior

    i’m booooooooorrrrrrreeeddddd i have the house to myself and i don’t feel like going outside

    • Monochrome Dream Eating Seraph

      Explore the house

      • EarthenWarrior

        but i’ve been in every room possible

        • Monochrome Dream Eating Seraph

          Exactly

          • EarthenWarrior

            maybe i’ll explore other people’s houses

          • I think that’s a crime

          • EarthenWarrior

            It’s only a crime if the occupants alert the authorities
            That’s why you drug and restrain them, that keeps them quiet

          • That’s also illegal and will spark an investigation after they realize their house has been broken into and they have been drugged

          • EarthenWarrior

            Pishaw you just gotta get rid of the Feds
            Anything to alleviate myself from such a dull afternoon

          • Melee’d a Roadhog Govnah

            you sir need help

          • EarthenWarrior

            I need an activity to keep me distracted with

    • Daedardus
      • Daedardus

        The monthly fee is a lie though, it is ridden with micro- and megatransactions.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I wish I more free time…….Like so much free time people would look at me as if it was ridiculous. If I had that much free time I’d be able to focus on my passions. Instead I find myself stressed out during even my actual free time……..Life is so hard……hahaha

    • TCRowlet

      Play more Mario Kart

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        That doesn’t help if I don’t have time to really enjoy it lol

    • Ithsme?

      Exhibit A: Earthen’s comment just below. xD

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        That’s what made me think hahaha

    • Armaggedon16

      Maaan i know exactly​ how that feels. I have like 3 days a month Completely stress free

  • EarthenWarrior

    So young prince Jangmo-o one day you’ll achieve greatness

  • Sunny

    At your local spelling bee:

    Proctor: Spell drought.
    Student: Could I have a definition?
    Proctor: When Pokemon is able to keep a tighter hold on any leaks or news than Donald Trump’s White House Administrationcan with confidential information.
    Student: … (starts tearing up due to the harshness of reality).

    • The PinSir is back

      I’m dead lmao

    • Daedardus

      To be honest, that isn’t a hard thing to do.

      • Sunny

        Do you mean spelling that word. Pretend he or she is an elementary school student who has parents that are very politically active and lean to the left. This spelling bee is also only at his school level. He or she might not know how to spell drought but the definition given to him or her is what causes the action of crying.

        • TheNintendoChip

          I mean even at an elementary school level, I wouldn’t expect a word like “drought” to appear. Idk, it depends. I participated in one in 2nd grade (which was the earliest I could do it at my school). In the qualifiers, I remember I had to spell “isotope”, which is definitely harder to spell. In the practice packet they gave me for the actual spelling bee, I had to spell harder words (ones that I remember: “prescription” and “smorgasbord”)
          But then in the real deal, the words ended up being stupid easy like “log” and “brown”.

          • Sunny

            I was honestly expecting people to be triggered at my joke. But I thought that it was going to be about the politics or the lack of Pokémon news. I did not know that spelling bees were this serious.

          • TheNintendoChip

            Nah it’s not serious, just clearing stuff up lol
            I liked the joke though. Most of us here are pretty left anyways

          • Sunny

            Yea, I know. It’s why I felt safe making the joke on Pokejungle.

        • Daedardus

          No, it’s not a hard thing to leak less than the Trump administration.

  • The PinSir is back

    What are your favorite Physical, Special, and Status moves?

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    So please keep this spoiler free/plot free for me, but what’s your favorite mechanic/ thing to do in BotW? What I should I look forward to?

    • Ithsme?

      Honestly? Just exploring and finding secrets was my favorite part of the game.

      And look forward to Hyrule Castle. You don’t have to wait, but I waited until I was ready to finish the game.

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        I’m excited for the strategic combat too! From what I’ve seen it looks like a blast!

    • Exploration is so amazing. Finding each part of the world is so rewarding and fills you with an amazing sense of discovery

      But using stasis to charge hits on rocks and tree then climbing into them as they fly is really fun

      • Also this is one of the few games where stealth is really actually fun

    • Ultron

      Getting to the top of a mountain and seeing a stunning view! <3

      I also love just stumbling upon little secret things here and there

    • EarthenWarrior

      Splorin’ i love just wandering around finding shit
      also fighting enemies and getting their weapons

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Theory: Tapu Lele will get an even more broken form in USUM and you’ll all be at the queen’s mercy

    • She will rise to the Top-u Lele

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        She’ll see all those losers Leletr

    • EarthenWarrior

      like i said i wanna see Animal Spirit Formes
      Rooster
      Butterfly
      Bull
      Fish

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Im already at the queen’s mercy

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Ngl mad that we got ‘Tapu Cocoa’ but not a ‘Tapu Lelei’

  • Summer Games 2016 legendary skins will be 1000 gold instead of 3000

    thank god

  • EarthenWarrior

    So Passimian is absolutely worthless right?
    Adamant or Jolly
    Receiver (defiant isn’t available)
    Close Combat
    Iron Head
    Earthquake
    Rock Slide

    I’m trying to figure out what possible abilities could benefit this pitiful ape
    Huge Power, Speed Boost, Contrary, Parental Bond

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Good in game, trash in meta

      Describes 90% of the Alola Dex tbh

      • EarthenWarrior

        i’m so peeved it doesn’t learn Seed Bomb

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          That’s what move tutors are for I guess :<

          • EarthenWarrior

            i now but seriosuly it lugs a coconut around with it and its main way of battling its exactly like Mienshao not learning power whip (which is weird since their both pure fighting types trying to learn a grass move)

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Omg I love Mienshao :000

          • EarthenWarrior

            i could take it or leave it

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Unfortunately. I might use one in USUM but only in playthrough. It could do with a faster and stronger evolution.

  • Wow I’m super relieved

    Before I left for two weeks of vacation I wanted to invite my friend over to my pool to swim and well I did it!

    She said she can’t, but I’m relieved I at least tried

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Good that you worked up the courage to at least try ☺

      • Yeah and for once someone gave me a good reason for why because she works all morning then babysits

        There was a girl who once told me she just didn’t like the activity I was inviting her to 😐

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Soooo… Conveniently none of the Island Scan Pokémon have Megas 😉 😉

    If we get a regional Tepig and it isn’t Ground I’m calling the cops

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Shitpost but is anyone else considering writing a story for their USUM? Wanted to for SuMo as some of you might remember but honestly that team let me down so much I now reside in hell ☺

    • EarthenWarrior

      yes, but I need more data
      most likely revolving around Jangmo-o
      maybe a wayward egg finds its way to wherever i’m going or it was apparently has been taken all across the island due to a freak accident

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        I’m gonna do the same with the Rockruff I’m keeping as an egg and then sending over, basically her story (she’s not an egg in the story and is the protag’s pet) is that she was attacked by poachers and trafficked to my character’s home region. When that region’s Aether Branch rescued it, my char adopted it.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Damn it don’t use poachers that’s what i was gonna do
          i see like an entire prologue of hunters trying to steal Jangmo-o from Poni canyon and the Totem Kommo-o is the caretaker violently wipes them out but they steal one egg that hatches during their stop on Melemele and this one was feisty and nearly blew the roof off the car (with dragon breath) and the young Jangmo-o wanders the wilderness and gets into a scrap with local wildlife and winds up hospitalized and we meet
          some kinda commotion with Team Skull and i rescue it and we vow to find its birthplace and grow stronger

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            We can both use poachers, more than one group of poachers can exist :p

          • EarthenWarrior

            Fine but i’m debating if i should make this one the child of the Totem Kommo-o

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I think that might sound a bit too Mary-Sue? I’d say maybe have it that he’s under Totem Kommo-o’s guidance, maybe even have it that Totem Kommo-o adopted it. I’d just stay weary of having it being a Totem’s biological child.

          • EarthenWarrior

            well don’t forget he never met said Kommo-o and was technically hatched on Melemele

    • maybe. idk.. probably not

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Not story related but have you ever sketched one of your teams? :0

        • I think I have actually. it was a Soul Silver team

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Is it *the* Soul Silver team? :0

          • I don’t remember 😛

          • Wait no it’s not :/

            I wanna draw every single team I’ve had tho

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            That sounds like it’d be fun :0

          • Yeah it would. That’s a lot of pokemon though…

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            A fun nightmare :p

          • basically any project I ever do lol

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Art as a whole tbj

        • EarthenWarrior

          I actually have something like that somewhere in my accordion folder
          my first black team
          but it was them using an attack

          Emboar Flame Charge (i think)
          Excadrill Drill run
          Sawk Retaliate
          Leavany Leaf Blade
          Eelektross Flash Cannon
          Golurk Fly

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Ehhh, my last playthrough kinda had one so maybe I might do it

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Ooh :0

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I kinda just go with the flow. If I find a head canon that I like as I play then I stick with it. Otherwise I don’t plan it out too much.

  • Question… should I save my 198 pokebank battle points for UltraMoon or take them in Moon?

    • EarthenWarrior

      yes battle items and move tutors

      • EarthenWarrior

        save

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      I had like 12000 and I just dumped them all on my now permanent sun run :0

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I hope that dex gets better with USUM 👀

      • EarthenWarrior

        hmmmm check your math buddy boy your Johto run is missing a 6th member

        • EarthenWarrior

          why it’s a fossil i always use fossils (minus Black)

          • The PinSir is back

            I know, but I always thought it was hard to pull off Ramp in-game cause of the bulk

          • EarthenWarrior

  • joler901

    Am I the only one who finds ultra solgaleo in-game face really stupid? Like a big stupid smile…

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Least favourite team you can remember?

    Deci/Turt/Toxa/AloPers/Comf/AloTales

    Whenever a starter is so badly outshined by the rest of the team it’s gonna have a bad impression on me. Comfey and Toxapex were tanky but I just didn’t have the patience for their weaker attacking stats because Deci and Turtonator just made me want that game done ASAP.

    Deci just felt worse than my Dhelmise from my other run because it was so physically frail and slow in comparison to half of the tram. Turt dragged until it got Shell Smash and even then it has a terrible movepool. Was great in the E4, but boring.

    AloTales was good but not particularly noteworthy.

    But Sasha.

    Sasha the Alolan Persian. This bitch.

    She was the slayer. Murdered everything, U-Turned back to the team. Helped cover Deci’s physical weaknesses with Fur Coat. And if she was against a physical attacker, it was set up Nasty Plot and win, win, win! An absolute legend 😢

    • Y. I still love it but I just love it less

      Delphox, Furfou, Clawitzer, Slurpuff, Yveltal, Gogoat

    • EarthenWarrior

      probably my early Red and Firered stuff
      i was always trying to cram stuff in there like Dugtrio, Nidoking, Rhydon Aerodactyl Snorlax Kabutops

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Sounds like a nightmare, so much grass and water weakness :0

        • EarthenWarrior

          no shit
          although i did have some fun times with a Parasect and a Victreebel once
          i’ve proabaly played Fire/Lear roms a bazillion times

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Victreebel is one of my faves <3

            I miss Grass/Poisons. You feel that way about Rock/Grounds?

          • EarthenWarrior

            a little bit….but then i remember all the times i had to flee in terror if i was up against a water user

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I just realised that my favourite type combo (Fairy/Poison) and yours (Ground/Fighting) are strong and weak against eachother :0

            May the best type combo appear first 👀

          • EarthenWarrior

            Malistocrat vs Warhog!
            unfortunately Malistocrat is a physical attacker and Warhog has high HP and way better attack

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Puggylist VS… Umm…

            Don’t have a Poison/Fairy since I scrapped all my Crypto Pokemon and my Regional Aromatisse and Slurpuff

          • EarthenWarrior

            it is just such a hard concept to nail down that isn’t some noxious sprite

            I should work on Abbigale the 6th Gym Leader
            the bratty daughter of the Super Department Store chain Founder, she basically had her father buy her expensive pokemon and position of gym leader nothing but sickening cutesy fairy types

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I don’t think it’s too hard, for example Swirlix was gonna become rotting (idea replaced with new Pokemon, Rankid and Festelder) Spritzee was going to be a poisonous perfume, and the Crypto Pokemon was a potion

          • EarthenWarrior

            or piggybacking on a existing pokemon……

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            If GameFreak does it I’ll do it 🤷‍♂️

    • Ultron

      Sucks you had such a bad time with Decidueye in game. Mine was great.

      My bad experiences with a team usually lie with one member: Emolga sticks out as being a huge weak link on a team I had. I’ve also had bad experiences with Pidgeot in SoulSilver. However, my worst experience with a pokemon was with Heliolisk in my first X playthrough. Its typing is trash and could never one shot anything and instead got OHKO practically every time.

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Omg guys we got like an extra second of USUM footage! (go to 50 seconds in)

    https://youtu.be/m_bbaOAWa3M

    • Ithsme?

      Oh that’s NEWWWWWWWSSSSSSS

      Time for a 24 hour gamexplain analysis.

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        ‘As you can see, Mimikyu jumps out of the woods. This appears to confirm that this isn’t a Z-Move, which could mean that ZYGARDE IS THE TRUE EVIL TEAM LEADER?

        • Ithsme?

          Seems accurate.

          Add that to the list of things I want explained: why is Zygarde in Alola?

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Obvious answer is Aether playing around with trying to open Wormholes but it’s never explained at all

            Cosmog and Null get backstory in files you can read, Ultra Beasts have elaboration from Wicke… And Zygarde got jack shit

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Well I mean we can rule it out as a Z-Move I guess? :0

      • The PinSir is back

        I mean.. it’s something right?

    • Sunny

      I literally paused the video a couple of times to get this screenshot. Mimikyu has crazy acrobatic skills! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d9deee120e53525ca1ea2f96fa833e6398edf7dd84d10fd2d75350eb1ccdbe96.png

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Damn Mimi jumping higher than fan’s problems with USUM

  • did it work?

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Yass girl

      • 😀 yay!

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Loving it

    • Sunny

      It’s cool. Personally I liked the avatar with the tentacle hair (splatoon based one). That’s probably why I also like Lusamine.

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Theory: as Mimikyu is seen in the trailer popping out from some woods, as well as the fact that there’s an upcoming anime episode called ‘Mimikyu’s disguise!’ where Jessie’s Mimikyu’s disguise gets ripped, we’re gonna see a Mimikyu form/evo.

    If it’s an evo it’ll either be a Silvally (minimal stat increase) or a Scizor (no stat increase, just rearrangement)

    • Thats what I was thinking! I still want a no face like abomination for its evo

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        I’m expecting it to be a total cutie under the rag tbh, like it’s actually just a shadowy Raichu or something XD

    • Sunny

      Well if you look at the image I posted below-it was the result of me trying to capture an image to see where the Mimikyu is jumping from. All we really know is that it’s jumping from something that has leaves. It could be a bush, it could be a tree, and it could be an Alola Exeggutor. The speculation one can derive from this one second is endless.

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Wherever it is, I’m wondering if this is actually Totem Mimikyu relocated? And this leafy area is its new domain?

        • Sunny

          I think that might be the most likely explanation.

        • Sunny

          Thrifty Megamart may actually be operating ordinarily in these games. Leading to Mimikyu living somewhere else. Maybe nearby the Pikachu camp. Just spitballing.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Ooh, what if Bulu never destroyed Tapu Village (and maybe extend that to Skull never taking over Po Town?) that’d be so cool

          • Sunny

            Yes! Little changes in the geography will make this game much more enjoyable to play.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Evolution is very strong, there is definitely a chance they might make an ultra form but at the same time they’re never going to show what mimikyu looks like under there

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        What the fuck is an Ultra Form? Like what happened to the legends? Because I’m more betting that’s just Necrozma manipulating light to appear as Solgaleo and Lunala.

        An Ultra Mimikyu wouldn’t fit because that goes off the theory it’s a fusion with Necrozma, and the pieces of Necrozma are the same size on ‘Solgaleo/Lunala’ as they are on Necrozma

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Also sorry if that seemed rude with the ‘what the fuck’ btw, not the best wording

          • EarthenWarrior

            Nonsense I talk to everyone like tha

        • EarthenWarrior

          True very true
          I’m just saying there is absolutely zero evidence that Mimikyu is going to change form whatsoever

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I just gave you ya two pieces

            Not solid but it’s nice to speculate

  • Sunny

    Well of the 163 day wait it has been 57 days. We are 34.97% of the way through pre-release and have finally gotten an extra second to the 16 second of game footage that was in reveal trailer. How is everyone feeling!

  • Anyone been seeing this completionist bullshit? 2 years after greg, his buisness partner left the show, he told Jirard to remove all episodes with him in it just as a way to fuck him over. Jirard has to delete most of his videos now and he is now redoing every single one of those games.

    During the adpocalypse too. What the hell.

  • The PinSir is back

    I’ve got some good news, I finally know where I’m going to base my new region around: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8e64e7aa5f336b32f9fd08ce455a9fce9da258fb212993bdbbcbf8aebb2d9757.jpg
    The name of the region will be Kamoja, which is a combination of the Swahili words “Kama moja”. When translated, this means “as one”.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      That sounds interesting, do you have any ‘mon in mind yet?

      • The PinSir is back

        I’m thinking about having a Fire Snake starter to keep up with the Chinese Zodiac. I also would like to include a mon that’s based around an African fighting style.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    I feel both like Rowlet and Mallow hit in the head by Rowlet in this http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/202/471/e1b.gif

  • Monochrome Dream Eating Seraph

    It seems like the new trailer shows the mimikyu scene and what looks like the water totem battle of USUM but a level lower…… (Note the background)
    Are they making these games easier…..

    • Monochrome Dream Eating Seraph

      Or I’m braindead
      But hey more customization

    • Tick

      what trailer?

    • What new trailer?

    So what type of side things would you prefer back in USUM?
    Battle Frontier?
    Poke Athelon?
    Medal System?
    Amie Minigames?
    Royale Stadium?
    Contests?
    Gym rematches?
    Battle Tower Remix?
    All of the above? Lol jk this isnt HGSS

    • Dicie

      all of the above pls

    • All

    • The PinSir is back

      Basically everything in this list

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Everything but Frontier, PWT is way better

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        ^this

  • EarthenWarrior

    New Donk City residents are officially called New Donkers

  • The PinSir is back

    So what are you expecting for tomorrow’s episode? Rowlet evolves? Someone learning a new move?

    • Sunny

      Rowlet does not evolve and Rockruff and Rowlet will both work together to pick up the KO on Lycanrock. Probopass will be knocked out earlier.

  • ShinyXatu

    I’m feeling that Nintendo will probably make a general Direct (like the one from April) next week, either August 9 or 10. Maybe the week after that. My point is, I think they’ll definitely give the first USUM trailer through that, showing the box art and stuff. Anyone else think this could happen?

    • Sunny

      Yes. It is a little disheartening to think that the first reveal will probably only be about the covers and legendaries. However, that also leads the way for a hopefully more exciting reveal at World.

    • Ithsme?

      I say that’s incredibly unlikely. I mean, what do they have left to reveal for this year? It’s not close enough to 2018 to look that far ahead in a regular direct, and other than USUM and the AC app, which will likely have its own event, there isn’t much left to say. Though it would be nice, I’ll say that. Maybe they could scrap together that Kirby title, an USUM trailer, a new Xenoblade clip, and call it a day.

      • Zelda DLC
        Samus Returns stuff
        Miitopia updates no one asked for
        USUM
        Kirby
        Yoshi 2018
        Xenoblade
        Arms/Splatoon updates
        Sushi Game
        Smash Bros tease?? ;~;

        • Ithsme?

          Forgot about that
          What left is there to say?
          Don’t know much about that, so I can’t say anything
          Yeah, but Pokemon usually has their own announcements
          Kirby 2017 stuff, yeah
          Probably too early
          Yeah, that would be nice
          Seems likely, ARMS updates seem especially slow considering what they promised
          Also forgot
          No way

          • They could elaborate on Samus Returns Amiibos

            Same honestly

            Sure but if they are getting one more Nintendo direct then why not?

            Ye

            I mean not if it’s an early or mid 2018 title

            Xenoblade is just a go to at this point

            Also they could mention that fire emblem game

          • Ithsme?

            I guess they could potentially scrap up a direct, but then they have nothing until January if they’re doing another presentation. I say wait a month or two.

        • Luigi301

          you forgot the rumored pikmin world 🙁 that was rumored with smash port

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Idk. I can see a direct happening at some point, but I’m not sure Pokemon will be featured. Main Pokemon games are already so rarely shown in directs and they just mentioned one in June. I can’t imagine they’ll talk about USUM. If we get anything it’ll be through TPCI press releases we’ve been getting as of late. That said I’d say we’re definitely getting something very soon. Before the 10th anyway.

    • Tick

      I am thinking if not in a direct, we get more info at worlds.

  • glauca
  • UnburdenedLegume

    Hmm interesting, it seems that Mallow might catch an Oranguru in episode 38.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Hopefully, this isn’t true smh

    >the legendary pokemon shown in the trailer are not new forms of Solgaleo and Lunala, but rather Necrozma’s Radiant Sun and Full Moon forms. It transforms by using one of 2 exclusive Z-moves.

    >some of the new alolan forms include an electric type Alolan Dodrio, a dragon type Alolan Ekans, and a rock type Alolan Lapras obtained by reviving a fossil.

    >the story is mostly the same as Sun and Moon, though Lusamine seeks to unleash the Ultra Beasts by using Necrozma instead of Cosmog. There is also a mission after the beasts are unleashed where the player, the rivals, zygarde, the kahunas, and the tapu defend alola from the beasts. UB-05 Guzzlord and Zygarde have a special role though I dont know what it is. Cosmog is notably absent until postgame.

    >gyms do not return, but some of the totems at the end of each trial are changed from pokemon sun and moon.

    >some new postgame areas are added where you can catch legendaries from previous games, such as a volcano where Heatran appears. This does not include “mascot” legendaries such as Dialga or Xerneas.

    >Move tutors are added through festival plaza shops. They require Festival Coins as payment.

    >New trainers are added to the battle tree, such as Steven and the rival from Gold and Silver.

    HOLY SHITE TYPE: NULL

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Lycan evo is more hype

      • EarthenWarrior

        I think that might just be Gladion’s

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          That’s not what I’m talking about lol

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Gladion already has a Lycanroc dude

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            He thought I was implying the Midnight Lycanroc was Ash’s evolved but I was talking about something different

          • UnburdenedLegume

            I think its pretty clear that Ash wont be getting either Midday or Midnight lol

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I wasn’t sure until I saw that both forms are gonna be here to witness the evolution, I doubt they’d have both forms here if it wasn’t implying it’s a third form

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Until 2 weeks ago, i was certain that Ash would be getting Midday because it fits both his personality & battling style the most

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Same, plus Gladion’s his rival so Midday VS Midnight with Olivia’s inspiring it to evolve

            So hyped for the new evo

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    https://youtu.be/yQqXEf9VlHA

    Next episode:

    Olivia and Gladion’s Lycanrocs

    Type: Null appears

    Rockruff fights Tapu Lele

    Ash’s Rockruff’s eyes glow green in reaction to the sunset

    Seeing as two other Lycanrocs are there, it’s obvious third evo hype is real

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      What if they reveal the new Lycan form in this month corocoro :0

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Next episode airs on the 10th and Corocoro usually leaks around the 11th so right in time I’d say

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Actually I’m pretty sure the anime episode and CoroCoro are due on the same day do we’re defo getting in on the 10th officially and a CoroCoro leak before

        Does CoroCoro come out on the 10th in August? Or is the twelfth? If it’s the twelfth Lycan will actually come out in the anime before the mag

      • KᑌᑭᑭO
        • UnburdenedLegume

          Wtf the sun is green

          • The angle of Light must change the sun to green

            Or maybe it hints Rockruff will become green

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Zygarde did it 👀

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Lycanroc Z-form omggggg

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            One Lycan form is based on the Sun, the other on the moon.

            So this one could be based on the earth :O

  • UnburdenedLegume

    LYCANROC DUSK FORM aahhhhhhhhhhh

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Doubt it’s ‘Dusk’ because that has night connotations like Midnight

      I think it’s gonna a be a form between night and day, which occurs at sunset and sunrise

    • Wait…. What?
      Was this confirmed?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Nah i’m just calling it that atm. Rockruff’s eyes started glowing green at sunrise, while both Lycanroc forms are present so its pretty obvious it’ll evolve either next week or the episode after that

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    -We’re due merchandise on around the 10th

    -Ash’s Rockruff will evolve on the 10th

    -CoroCoro comes out earlier in August

    Hold your horses bitches, we getting a Lycan form

      What if it’s just a glorified mishmash of both day and night forms
      Like a fusion

      • I think I will love it regaurdless

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Doubt it, they’re gonna be wanting to hype this lil bitch

        I think we’re gonna get one with aspects of both forms, like a site wolf or something

      • UnburdenedLegume

        It better be dual type ngl. Pure Rock is boring

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Rockruff should’ve been Rock/Normal, Lycanday should’ve either kept that type or become Rock/Dark or Rock/Ground or something, and Lycanight should’ve been Rock/Dark or Rock/Fighting

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Predictions for third Lycan form:

    – Domestic dog, stays pure Rock. Stat spread is similar to Rockruff’s but obviously better
    – Direwolf, Rock/Dark. A balance between Midnight and Midday’s stats.
    – Wulver, Rock/Fairy. Again, a balance between the two existing forms, ooor a special attacker.
    -Necrozma based, Rock/Psychic. Most common prediction I’ve seen.

      Rock/Fairy for the banter and to piss of Earthen

      • EarthenWarrior

        Screw you

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          That’s gay

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Just clocked, this would be only the 2nd time in the series where a new form or evolution from a new game/generation is introduced via the Anime. Mega Charizard X in Origins

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Oh wow so Ash beats Olivia in the Grand Trial, so no rematch episode.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Way to fucking spoil it jackass

      • UnburdenedLegume

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

    The real question no one has asked yet is “will Lycanrock 3rd form be a quadruped or bipedal”?

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Tripedal 👀 😛

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Its a Cyclops

    • I’ve been thinking that as well I’d say for my preference Bipedial

  • UnburdenedLegume
  • What if rockruff evolves into Necrozma

    So, is anyone planning on getting these games? If so, which one do you plan on getting first? I’m gonna get Dancing Star Night, but I’ll probably end up getting both through some means.
