The first images of CoroCoro have begun to surface!

As per usual, the cover is first to appear. And upon closer inspection there’s something that looks incredibly Lycanroc-like – albeit with a different color palette and, most notably, green eyes.

This is not confirmed to be related to Pokémon in anyway as of yet, however the similarities are simply uncanny.

Time to weigh in your thoughts! Pokémon, or nah? Are we looking at a dusk/dawn Lycanroc form? Maybe Ash-Lycanroc? And are those Necrozma-like extensions coming out of it?


UPDATE: Shigeru Omori will be appearing on tomorrow’s episode of Pokénchi with the latest news about Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! It will air at 8AM Japan Standard Time, so check your local Google search bar to make sure you’re up and ON OUR SITE for the latest info regarding what is revealed. Due to the nature of the games’ international release, an English trailer could even be simultaneously be released – but we’ll have to wait and see!

Gavin has never really been good at writing bios, nor does he think he ever will be. When he's not playing Pokemon he enjoys long walks on the beach and reading romantic novellas by candlelight. He's just finished serving his two years of NS in Singapore, and is slowly adjusting to civilian life.
  • Worth noting that in the past there have been CoroCoro covers that have had little no Pokemon content on the cover, but had lots of juicy info inside – take everything with a grain of salt, and have fun speculating!

    • nb97

      How much do we actually have to wait for the inside of the magazine? As far as I can remember, it’s stil not leaking time. I might be wrong though.

      • Corocoro

        Corocoro releases early in august so it’ll leal earlier than usual aswell. Propably in the next couple days it’ll leak;)

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    Very similar to Midday imo :T

    But hopefully when the full art is shown I end up liking it more

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Surely it has two forms? Doubt they’d give Ash a Pokemon that is powered up by a legendary, would be insanely OP

    • Mia Cloud Valentine

      So was Ash greninja but that doesn’t mean if he has it he won’t lose in some battle?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Ash-Greninja was not a legendary nor was it powered up by one?

  • ShinyXatu

    Nice catch there. Perhaps Serebii didn’t look closely enough. I’m personally convinced that’s Lycanroc.

  • AuroraLights493

    it’s interesting…… It really seems like it’s a strange hybrid of the two forms… At least what I can make out of it …..

    HOW EXCITING!!!! =D

  • Daedardus
  • joler901

    Those black things on it? Necrozma related? Ultra forms?

  • The Geek Man Cave

    I just finished a video where I look at the new form being alomost a fusion of each other form check it out! https://youtu.be/1SCm6FQi4Hc

  • Chris Mckenzie

    the wait is over almost over next week

  • Hey anyone notice how Clefairy from the “other” Manga is on the cover as well? So who evee reads that one maybe something about that is coming

    • Oh, I didn’t notice that. I guess it’s possible we can get another Electric Tale Of Pikachu.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Apparently tonight’s Pokenchi has USUM news (source: Serebii)

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Whats more interesting, is that Omori is covering the news and not Masuda like usual.

    • joler901

      it’s been 20 years of pokemon. That tv show is the biggest troll ever. Do not expect anything more then what we know already.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Yeah except this time the lead designer of the franchise is a guest which is highly uncommon

  • MenacingCascoon

    Looks like Lycanroc midnight form color scheme on Lycanroc day form body

    • I think it’s looks too orange to be the color scheme, but then again that might be where it is on the screen and the shading for me

  • Butter Geek

    So, how is everybody doing in Sage? I’m on route 5 and my team is:
    Melter the Pyroat lv 23
    Pickaxe the Koblin lv 15
    Caesar the Alpint lv 15
    Proffesor Yak the Psybex lv 15

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • Butter Geek

      FAKE! at least I hope it’s fake, it shouldn’t be pure rock

    • Bwah Govnah

      It looks fake, but it gives us a better idea of what we could be looking at

    • … I’ll take it, but I’d rather Dawn and Dusk or my new placeholder names for them

      Lycanroc DayBreak and NightBurst

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I’m like 80% sure that this is fake though. Still have a feeling it’ll be dual type

    • Seraph The Lava Lamp

      NIGHT SHADOW WOW

    • I ACTUALLY LOVE THIS

  • EarthenWarrior

    ………..this is all the info, when does it come out

  • EarthenWarrior
  • EarthenWarrior

    Well time for more Sage,
    I just found this tropical place and my Rocano evolved into Volcaroc and I’m loving it

  • MK126

    Whatever it is it looks like it has the hair of Admin Mars fron DDPT. I feel like these next few months are gonna be information overload because if how close to the release date we’re getting

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Hmmmmmm so that may be a new form huh? I’m surprised it’s so similarly colored to midnight form. Also I’m not holding my breath for Pokenchi. I’ll believe it when I see it hahaha

  • MK126
    • UnburdenedLegume

      Already confirmed as fake

      • MK126

        Damn people move fast lol i just saw this 5 minutes ago

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Its like 2 days old tbf. I’m on 4Chan almost every day so i read a lot

          • MK126

            Oh womp and i thought i discovered some shit 😂😂😂

  • PJ

    Literally my first day of summer break. Thought I could sleep in, relax, game a little… but no. Gotta wake up at 7:45 to cover Pokémon news :'(

    • Ithsme?

      Wait, what? My summer ends in a week.

    • Bwah Govnah

      First day of Summer break means first day of news season my friend

    • Lucky my summer ends in 3 weeks

      • PJ

        Well I only get two weeks off my job so :<

        • Bwah Govnah

          SO TWO WEEKS OF NEWS OMG

  • Ithsme?

    To add a little something onto Ozy’s comment, Pokenchi has also promised information many times and dissapointed. I want to be optimistic, but they don’t have the best track record.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Agreed but this time Omori is covering it, pretty uncommon occurence

      • Ithsme?

        True, but they’ve also had Masuda as a guest a few times, and revealed nothing. Guess we’ll find out soon enough.

    • PJ

      Actually I just edited Ozy’s post. It was my note, so if you must… blame me…

  • Wait a minute… The newest TCG Burning Shadows is an Alolan set, yet it has Regular Raichu in the line up of cards?!

    • Butter Geek

      Not that weird

      • But if the cards are meant to be in Sun and Moon, why give a Pokémon form you can’t obtain in Sun and Moon

        • Butter Geek

          I think you can get cards of mons that don’t appear in wild

  • Sunny

    So I looked on Serebii and it said that Pokenchi is 19:00 EDT. That would place Japan at 8:00 tomorrow. My question is…will we know if Pokenchi is once again revealing nothing worthwhile at 19:00 EDT today?

    • So 7:00 tonight?

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        7 est yes

    • PJ

      I wrote 8am right in the article lol; the segment about USUM might not air until 8:10 or 8:15 so allow at least 30 mins to know definitively if we have new info

      • Sunny

        Yea. I was just asking when it would start. I know that they will do other stuff on the show besides the aforementioned “new” news.

  • Bwah Govnah

    inb4 this is what we see tonight on Pokenchi
    https://youtu.be/ue-CBOrLnb0?t=3m1s

    • I think they may cut Pokken out of it

      • Bwah Govnah

        well I purposely made it so the video would start when the trailer starts at USUM

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Tbf, I’m 100% sure that this trailer will appear, but I’m more interested on what Omori will say about the games

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Aah so excited! I’ll probably be up at midnight playing Persona anyway, bought my own copy today! ☺

    Shiny Rockruff, Persona 5, USUM news. A good 24 hours! ☺

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Glitch mode in BotW is too unfair man lol

  • SuperNintenDex
  • Hayley Waalen

    I hope it’s a new form for Lycanroc

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp

    Sageboi is here
    Anywho, good to know backstabbing Rock asshole has another form to evolve into! Tbh it’s probably going to be another pathetically weak mono rock type with a cool appearance with a “signature move” like stone edge or something ;3

    Or at least I hope it’s something so we know GF didn’t forget these games existed my dude

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Not Rockruff’s fault Rowlet is as durable as a cotton condom

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        But it attacked it for no reason
        Even if it didn’t faint its still an ass move
        I would get on Rowlet if it did that

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          It couldn’t help itself, it’s grown restless due to being near evolution. That’s literally nearly all of its lore

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Okay?
            You realize I called it Rock Asshole as a joke right? I don’t think I’d term it like that if I was serious

            I’d use something along the lines of “piece of shit” , y’know?

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I was joking too, who the hell would use cotton condom seriously

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            You never know ;3
            I mean… we do have Earthen on this site

            So anything is possible really

  • @themonster6893:disqus To continue our Bleach Brave Souls talk from the previous article, what’s your team?

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp

    Actually real talk: I’ll be super depressed if the new form is yet another fucking mono rock type

    • TheNintendoChip

      If we’re only getting one new Lycanroc forme, then I could easily see it just being called “Lycanroc” and be pure Rock.

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        Oh god………..

    • Bwah Govnah

      its gonna be rock/rock

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        Yes ? XD

    • Butter Geek

      Off topc, but have you seen Lava Lamp Squid’s evo?

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        HELL YEAH AND I LOVE IT

        • Butter Geek

          I nnnnneeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeddddddd it

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            YEeeeeeeeeeeeeee

          • Butter Geek

            Also, why isn’t Phlask catchable yet?

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Cause the world hates everything I adore

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I think it’s very likely tho :/

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        I know ;~;

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Assuming this Lycanroc form is somehow connected to Necrozma, I think its highly possible that Ash will receive an anime-exclusive form similar to Ash-Greninja but it wont be significantly more powerful than other Mons imo.

    • Butter Geek

      If somebody’ll get something like that it should be inci

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Ah man I want him to get Inci so badly

        • Butter Geek

          I mean, litten will for 100% fully evolve

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Yep yep agreed. Similar backstory as Charmander and Froakie

          • Butter Geek

            I feel like he’ll have an Anime exclusive Z-move that make hism look like Ash-Inci for the duration of the attack

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            No offense but doesn’t ash have to use Litten in order for it to evolve?
            I mean even though Rowlet gets used here and there, it’s pretty clear that Rockruff is the new Poke-fave right now

      • Bwah Govnah

        It be cool if Rockruff became the greninja of this gen

        • Butter Geek

          You meant to say Inci

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Or both

            Two, two Greninjas

          • Bwah Govnah

            They fuse
            Incinroc or Lycanroar

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            So that’s why furriest are bad

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            *furries

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Seraph is the biggest furry here 👁‍🗨

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Nah that’s Alex

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Relatable

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Incineroar is his fursona

          • Bwah Govnah

            I am thou, thou art I… Thou hast acquired a new vow.
            It shall become the wings of rebellion that breaketh thy chains of captivity.
            With the birth of the Incineroar fursona, I have obtained the winds of blessing that shall lead to freedom and new power…

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            I’d rather drink bleach

          • Bwah Govnah

            Bleach PERSONA.

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            So how about gouging my own heart out?

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Incona

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Incerona

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

          • Bwah Govnah

            ITs gonna stay rowlet

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            I feel like this conversation already happened 😛

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            It’s not, they’re all gonna evolve and only Rockruff will be cared about

          • Bwah Govnah

            Where will it sleep then 🙁

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            On his head clearly

          • UnburdenedLegume

            In Ash’s shadow as its a ghost 😛

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            PLEASE

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Marshadow does it in the movie, so why not?

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            IKR :3
            But let’s not talk about that movie, kay?

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Watch an article about the movie pop out just because you said that :p

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Nope
            NopE
            NoEP

          • Butter Geek

            I JUST IMAGINED SOMETHING. ASH’S FINAL TEAM:
            ASH PIKACHU
            ASH INCI
            ASH DECI
            ASH TWILIGHT LYCANROC
            ASH GOLISOPOD
            ASH ALOLAN CLEFABLE

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            The last one is what gets me

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Ew

        • Ultron

          It should be Deci, but Nintendo is stupid

          • Butter Geek

            *It WILL be Inci, cause GF is smart

  • UnburdenedLegume

    My translation might be off, but i’m positive this says ”world premiere” relating to the USUM news in Pokenchi (rf) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c7e250d31b912d6999d84700a5fb8d1de7539315a7f92cd08e70884e1ea495bf.png

    • Seraph The Lava Lamp

      We’re gonna see a premier of the first USUM trailer for the first time on Pokenchi

      • Bwah Govnah

        Beat you too that joke already m8

        • Seraph The Lava Lamp

          I know I just needed to say it

          • Bwah Govnah

            Hmm you win this round

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            :3

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp

    I forget is there any way to watch this Pokenchi?

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      There’s streaming sites for Japanese shows

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        Can I be linked to this? I desire to watch

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          I need to find it too XD

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            I SHALL LOOK WITH MY EARS

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I think they’re going to put the stream in the website just like they use to do

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        I seeeeeeeeeeee

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp

    Worst case scenario
    -No news
    -October Demo
    -Everything is leaked

    • Bwah Govnah

      GG

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        Tbh that would be the saddest shit ever

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp

    My favorite Pokemon type is dog
    Y’know, beats dragon and fairy
    Weak to normal
    Stuff like stoutland, Houndoom, Dustox

    • Armaggedon16

      Arcanine

    • Sunny

      Why is Dustox…nevermind.

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Entei Suicune and Raikou

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Strong against cat types like meowth and Meowstic

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        Wtfs a cat

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          A mythological creature from New York duh

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Wtf is a new york

          • Butter Geek

            A baby york dog, you silly!

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            A magical place where everyone is mean and with a lot of traffic

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Wtf is a traffic

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Something California has a lot of

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Wtf is a California

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            A place where everyone says “groovy” and no, I don’t know wtf a groovy is

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Wtf is an everyone

          • Butter Geek

            A sequel to “Me”

        • EarthenWarrior

          Scratch Cat
          Classy Cat
          Catty
          Tiger Cat

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp

    Fun fact: Once in a nuzlocke I got a Dustox, got kinda pissed off and named it something random
    Enter Dog the Dustox

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Don’t worry I do that a lot as well, once I named my Snivy “France”

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        I ended up having lots of names like that
        And more profane ones
        Like Dildick the spearow

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          dildick

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Still proud of that name

      • Butter Geek

        But the Snivy line is based on French royalty (and the next gen after Snivy’s gen was based on france. And the Rowlet line is based on diffrent british characters, sooooo)

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          But it’s still a kinda dumb name tbh. It’s like calling a Lotad “México”

  • Sunny

    So if it’s something new. What do you think Pokenchi will show? The Coro Coro magazine cover is already showing the supposed new Lycanrock form so I would think that it might be first shown in Coro Coro. But what would they show on Pokenchi? Or I could just be wrong.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I think they’ll hint new features from the games, and maybe the new Lycan form or a silhouette?

    • Butter Geek

      *Lycanroc

      • Sunny

        Thanks for the correction.

  • Bwah Govnah

    They gonna show walking with pokemon

    • Butter Geek

      YYYYYYEEEEEEESSSSSSS I WANT IT EVEN MORE NOW THAT I’M PLAYING SAGE

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I wish

  • MenacingCascoon

    But how could it be new Lycanroc form if they are advertising the old forms https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/781379259605981d746de38c2c62021956d52ef7fa266374e6858024fe46fe9d.gif

    • Bwah Govnah

      because maybe all 3 (4?) get its own z-move?

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Its obvious that the old forms are gonna have Totems in USUM

      • EarthenWarrior

        I kinda want to see a Totem Dhelmise

        • Bwah Govnah

          Justs see giant anchor then the moss ghost seaweed develops on it

          • EarthenWarrior

            I just want so see some switch ups with the totems

      • MenacingCascoon

        I wouldn’t say obvious. I would like to see new totems. Maybe oricorio calling pokemon to help woth the dancer ability

        • Bwah Govnah

          That would be very cool 😀

        • Ultron

          Oricorio calls for help! Volcarona appeared! Volcarona used Quiver Dance!

          • MenacingCascoon

            Volcarona uses Fiery Dance
            Oricorio dancer activates
            RIP trainer or!
            Lilligant partner with Quiver Dance and Petal Dance

  • EarthenWarrior

    I’m tired, groggy, bloated and smell like a rotting bobcat,
    But hopefully tonight will be the night it lights a mighty flame under our collective asses

    Also I’m deciding if I wanna 100% Ocarina of Time 3D

    • Ultron

      How have you not already?

      • EarthenWarrior

        I did MM 100%
        I never bothered with OOT because of the Skulltulas

        • Ultron

          True, but it’s a minuscule feat compared to 100% BOTW

          • EarthenWarrior

            yeah you guys are very much aware of the hair thin sanity that lingers

  • Ultron

    It looks very.. Zoroark ish

  • Butter Geek

    What if in USUM oricorios get a move that lets them change forms during battle?

    • Ultron

      Idk if it has the defenses to use such a move. It would likely still be OHKO’d

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      That’ll remove the purpose of the coloured nectars,but i’d cool to have the possibility of using the nectar in battle to change the form

      • Butter Geek

        Maybe the move would change into aa random form while the nectars would let you choose

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Then you just spam the move to get the desired form -_-

          • Butter Geek

            And you get attacked multiple times

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            You just fight a lower leveled enemy but this move doesn’t make sense anyways, it’s stated multiple times that only nectars can only change Oricorio’s form so it won’t make sense for Oricorio to change the form without any nectar whatsoever and randomly like that.

            Just because USUM is an alternate dimension doesn’t mean that literally anything can happen.

  • Butter Geek

    Ugh… Google won’t anwser me … In sage where should I go after getting to the crossroad

    • Butter Geek

      Help me, it’s not a major spoiler, it’s about geography (kinda) and I still have’t got to the second gym

      • EarthenWarrior

        did you fight that douchebag?

        • Butter Geek

          Nvm, I got it

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well Sage Update
    After braving the wilderness i have stumbled onto a lovely bay side town with a Water Gym Leader, but i want to grind my team to the 30s before that

      You’re close to the end…

      • EarthenWarrior

        i know

  • UnburdenedLegume

    So after looking again, I noticed that this Lycanroc has the facial structure of Midday and the manes of Midnight. Fusion/hybrid form?

    • EarthenWarrior

      i”d be fine with that, i mean hypothetically the genes are all there and there’s not reason they can’t try to activate at the same time

      • UnburdenedLegume

        It looks to have Necrozma-like extensions too. Crazy shit happening rn

  • ShinyXatu

    Finally, confirmed news. On Pokenchi of all things. Let’s hope it’s something substantial!

    • My hopes
      -Lycanroc
      -Anything else about USUM

      That’s all I want today, start vacation good

      • ShinyXatu

        I’m going on vacation today too! I’ll still be in a car getting there when this news drops.

    • Sunny

      And it only took nearly one day short of two months to get it.

  • I just wanna point out that the first substantial news Coro Coro had about sun and moon (other than Magearna and Zygarde forms) were Rockruff and Komala reveals.

    • Butter Geek

      #KomalaEvoConfirmed

    • Ultron

      Oh, Komala…what a forgettable pokemon

      • Maybe not by the end of the night :4

        • Ultron

          One can dream I suppose.

          • I don’t think it’s 100% we’re getting a Komala evo reveal in corocoro but it is possible

          • Ultron

            I’d be happy if we did, but I don’t think GF is that on top of their shit to actually give pokemon evolutions

      • Still cute though

  • Stevosan

    I just hope it’s not like a yokai watch monster or something. That’d be disappointing.

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • I really like thissss

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I want it to be real ngl this design is unreal

        • Ultron

          You right, it’s unreal cause it’s fake af

          • I mean obviously

          • Ultron

            Js the posing is really bad, GF usually does their official artwork pretty well. The 3D models are another story though..

    • ShinyXatu

      Looks like an artist’s quick interpretation of what’s on the CoroCoro cover.

    • Ultron

      Ewww what’s with the head shape..? Like look at the bridge of the nose

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Its a fusion of Midday and Midnight

        • Ultron

          And sloppy

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I looks overdesigned compared to the other forms tbh

      • Ultron

        Why does it have unicorn hair tuft

    • I want a good Lycanrock form because my Lycanrock in Sun and Moon was trash and literally the worst member of my team

      • Ultron

        Well, I mean, it is a rock type xD

        • I just hope it gets a second type… my golem I Heart Gold was way better than he was

          • Ultron

            There are few good rock dual typings. Rock/Grass is like the only one I think is actually decent.

          • Butter Geek

            #LycanTwilightIsRockSlashGrassCauseGreenCONFIRMED

          • Ultron

            I’d be 1000% fine with that, it’s a good typing xP

      • They are good, design wise and they are good if you use one in the right conditions

    • Bwah Govnah

      that looks very cool

  • Butter Geek

    I just discovered I won’t be able to evolve my Pawter (in Sage) cause you can’t get a thunder stone yet… F*CK!

  • Ultron

    Gen 8 should just be 100% new evolutions for old pokemon with no new pokemon. Just go on a mass evolving spree and make every shitty pokemon they’ve ever made actually worth caring about, which includes megas for fully evolved pokemon and stat reassignments. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • Armaggedon16

      Or maybe be like gen 4 instead

      • Ultron

        That would be better than nothing, but they would still leave out some that need work

    • Nah make it more like 50/50

      • Ultron

        Alright, I’d settle for that

  • The PinSir is back
  • Ultron

    I hope there’s a new industrial evil team and they cut the battle tree down and burn it

    • I like Alolan evil teams. They are the best since Galactic

      • The PinSir is back

        Not to mention the team leaders have really great themes

      • Armaggedon16

        Lol plasma was wayy better than aether and skull, tbh skull was bad and the aether being evil ‘twist’ was badly executed.

        • Skull really just wasn’t bad guys, they more were just inadequate Bullies, excluding Guzma

          • Armaggedon16

            I don’t even know what skull wanted, like why were they with aether? What did the team hope to achieve? Why was gladion there? They never felt like a threat, and you just go and take over there hideout without any buildup and lusamine shows up and is just like ‘btw im crazy’

          • Butter Geek

            Guzma was with Aether cause Lusamine is pretty

          • Ultron

            I guess the whole thing was that guzma was following Lusamine because she was the only one who recognized his power and made him not feel like shit. Honestly though, I feel like their organizations definitely should have been collaborating more, it felt thrown together at the last minute. And I would’ve liked to see internal drama from both skull and aether members about them having to work together

          • Armaggedon16

            Skull and aether members didn’t even know they were working​ together.. i think? Since there was a small dispute shown in the game

        • No???

          Skull was great because it was actually a group of people and not robots with motives that make no sense. They are a bunch of disillusioned kids who are alone and want a family. That’s why Plumeria is referred to as like a sister. Meanwhile you have magma over here. Why the hell are these people following Maxie? Did try not think for 2 seconds that you can’t just get more land,

          Even if the AETHER twist was obvious, it’s still great. They have a great story with Lusamine and Lillie and Gladion. Type Null leads into the darker parts of their plans. But despite the corruption, AF is genuinely trying to help Pokémon. It’s so good

          • Armaggedon16

            Yes, but like what was the team trying to do? Why was guzma with Aether. And you’re talking about how they weren’t robots but i didn’t feel any personality from any of team skull.

            Aether was badly done, lusamine is a great villian but aether is crap. You go there once, the game shows you there good. Then without any buildup it jusy says lillie was taken there. I’m going to ignore how Stupid it is that the Mohn thing wasn’t​ mentioned in the main plot, even then the story and the teams aren’t well thought out. The only thing well thought about whole of sm is lillie.

          • Clearly you didn’t pay attention at all because they explain it multiple times. Guzma was with Lusamine because she was the only adult who treated him like he was a strong trainer. Guzma grew up in an abusive household so someone to validate him is very important. This also makes Lusamine even more evil because she is taking advantage of him.

            Skull steals Pokémon, then supplies them to AF so they can keep up this image that they are saving pokemon from team skull.

            And I don’t know how you can call Aether badly done. They are set up through out the entire region. You see houses and trailers around the region. They give you so much explanation and small hints about their true intentions.

            Gladion also is there to make you question AF. IN THE BEGINNNG OF THE GAME LILLIE IS RUNNING AWAY FROM THE AETHER FOUNDATION

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            A lot of this information isn’t conveyed clearly tho. You shouldn’t be spoon-fed but you shouldn’t have to dig so deep

          • I knew all of this my first playthrough? They tell you straight out

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Mostly the Aether stuff tbh, I just don’t find it well explained. Good for you if you figured it out but clearly some others didn’t which isn’t good as they’re the driving force of the game

          • Butter Geek

            A lot of this is headcannon tho

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Less head canon and more implied. Head canon makes it sound like it has little value

          • No it’s not. At all. It’s all in the game.

            Plumeria explains why Guzma is with Lusamine on Poni Island

            Guzma’s dad and the broken golf clubs.

            He never got to be a trial captain

            Guzmas redemption in post game

      • ShinyXatu

        Totally. In a game with lots of strong suits, the evil teams were some of the strongest…suits.

      • Ultron

        Yeah I do too tbh :I Just hope they get more to do

      • I wish Guzma didn’t have Masquerain on his team, then I would like Guzma more

    • Armaggedon16

      If it’s better than skull and aether sure

      • What are you people talking about?

  • The PinSir is back

    I am just dying to know about U-Solgaleo and U-Lunala. I know it’s a hybrid of Necrozma and one of the mascots, but I want to find out their abilities, potential z-moves they might have, and some lore behind them.

  • agomon26

    I swear if it’s an ash-lycanrock form some one at Pokemon will die… Jk but srsly a new lycanrock form would make a lot of sense

    • The PinSir is back

      I highly doubt it’s a Bond Phenomenon form. The Pokemon with bp has qualities that look like the trainer, and looking at the picture, not really anything about it looks like SM Ash.

      • Sunny

        Unless…it works the other way around this time and Ash will look more like Lycanroc when it activates.

        • The PinSir is back

          Maybe 👀

        • Butter Geek

          And start a poketuber channel

  • ShinyXatu

    I really just want a confirmation that there will be more new Alolan forms in these games, especially from Gen 2. It would be awesome if we got some Gen 3 as well, but I doubt it.

    • Sunny

      Gen 3 has gotten a lot of love when Megas were still a big deal. But I do agree with you in that I would like to see Alola forms from Gen 2. It would also allow them to capitalize on sales from the virtual GS coming out in September.

    • Butter Geek

      I still want more alolan forms from kanto. Clefable, Alolan Fossils (not you Areodactyl), Arcanine, Machamp, so much more potential!

      • Bwah Govnah

        what would Machamp become?

        • Sunny

          It would have 4 legs instead of 4 arms. That would be the only difference.

          • Butter Geek

            It’d be Fighting/Bug

        • Butter Geek

          Fighting/Dragon or Fighting/Rock or Pure fairy

          • Bwah Govnah

            it better Shoryuken then

  • I’m so used to playing with the pro controller that using the grip is really weird now .-.

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp
    • Sunny

      A slow yet awesome episode.

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        Agreed

        • Sunny

          Also the next episode isn’t in the manga at all but it should be interesting since it will be giving background in the other student’s internships that was kind of skipped over after the end of the Stain Arc.

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Yeshhhhhhhh

  • Ultron

    Why does my Switch only get like one hour of battery life in handheld mode? I haven’t even had it for 2 months yet

    • Turn down brightness, use airplane mode ( you can enable wifi while still using airplane mode) and turn off auto brightness. If it doesnt hell you may wanna contact Nintendo

      • Ultron

        Yeah I turned the brightness down, I’ll try the other two things. Thanks 🙂

      • Help*

    • ShinyXatu

      I used to get two hours or more while playing Zelda in handheld mode, so something may be abnormal there.

      • Ultron

        Yeah same, but when I was playing Splatoon a day ago it was like >1 hour and my friend was at like 80% on his doing the same thing…

  • Inkbrush hurts my hand so much. I wish I didn’t have to spam the Attack and jump button I get anything done..

    • Bwah Govnah

      It looks great tho

        I miss making shinies 🙁 any shines you want me to fix Im bored

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Garchomp

          • Bwah Govnah

            Should i make it match its pre evolution or its mega or do my own rendition

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Your own rendition 😛

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Ultra Lunala and Solgaleo 👀

          • Bwah Govnah

            I DIDN’T THINK OF THAT, but im doing Ultra forms of my shinies predictions
            http://i.imgur.com/wSDBgHh.jpg

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Lunala was close owo

          • Bwah Govnah

            it was :3

        • Butter Geek

          Dartrix looking like the 11th doctor

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            That wouldn’t be a shiny tho? That’d be a total complex palette swap

          • Butter Geek

            Shinies are often complete pallete swaps

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Example

            Now

          • Butter Geek

            Passimian (I think), Muk

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            They both swap colours, not have a complex palette swap. For example, Muk becoming all green rather than all blue, Passimian’s green becoming more orange

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Muk only has one colour with only two shades, and Passimian are just colour changes that doesn’t make much sense, Fairy explained what differentiates between a palette swap and a shiny so I won’t do it myself 😛

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            They swap certain colours, not swap independent pieces. The only ones to do so are Pheromosa and Gardevoir and that was non descript changes to their dresses, meaning it wasn’t too complex

        • Primarina and Tsareena?

        • Butter Geek

          Oh! Blue and Neon Yellow Aloraichu

        • Dazzling Marina

          Black and purple Lurantis?

    • Ultron

      If they actually do have a sunset form, I imagine there might also be a daybreak form

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Just say sunrise you hipster 👀

        • Ultron

          Hm, that actually didn’t occur to me. I do like daybreak a smidge better tho

  • Inkopolis is full of furries now o-o

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      I blame Butter Geek and Alex

      • Butter Geek

        Where did I go wrong?!

      At least you can tell the colours changed :

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Wow it’s so vibrant and nice (oOo)

  • Sunny

    Well it has been about a week since I posted Alola Meganium so it’s about time for the next one of the trio:

    The next of the hypothetical Alola-form Johto starters (and how I think Gamefreak should do them) that I will be talking about is my favorite of the three Johto Starters and also a possible reason why they might not do Alola-form Johto starters. The reason being that making one for Typhlosion without making it an entirely different Pokemon (think Marowak vs Alola Marowak with the complete type change) is kind of hard and unlikely since it is a starter so it’s primary typing is trademark to it. I describe more about it down below. Please let me know what you think and next time will be the final one of the trio.

    Alola Typhlosion
    Fire/Normal
    Ability: Blaze -> Technician

    It’s kind of hard to come up with an Alolan form that would vastly improve upon Typhlosion. It was one of my favorite Pokémon back when I got Pokémon Gold and absolutely rocked in-game. However, this is before Gen 4’s physical/special split. Many of Typhlosion’s moves are physical while its strongest stab moves are special. They could just keep it specialized but then issue is the not so diverse Special movepool that it has. Thus, it would be probably be in Alola Typhlosion’s best interests if they change its movepool post-evolution to have strong special Normal-Type attacks-which is unlikely considering only Hyper Voice and Boomburst are stronger than Swift. This is the reason why I would say that Alola Typhlosion would benefit from having Technician so it could boost the power of Swift. My reasoning behind Fire/Normal is that if I am following the Chinese Zodiac correctly, Typhlosion is based on the rat a Pokémon that is traditionally Normal type . (An exception of course being Pikachu). Also Typhlosion already learns a large number of Normal type moves. An argument could be made for Fire/Rock, Fire/Steel due to it learning both rollout and gyro ball. To do this the variant will need to be physical and that would mean ignoring the rare new move that it was given this Generation called Burn Up. Typhlosion also doesn’t have the bulk or speed to sacrifice for it to be a worthwhile mixed attacker, unless Gamefreak were to go down the Fire/Steel route which has been displayed to be a fantastic defensive typing for a Fire type by the likes of Heatran. There isn’t really much to base off of in terms of TMs if we are staying with the special variant because the few that Typhlosion has might be strong, but are also unreliable and seem only to be included for the extra coverage.

  • Tick

    Can anything new be expected from Pokenchi tonight?

    • Yes

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Kinda likely

    • Tick

      Im just hoping its not like April last year when it was thought there would be more news but it was just the Sun and Moon trailer again.

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Or in 2014 with the ORAS opening 👀

        • Tick

          What happened with that?

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Just a cutscene they showed of the legends in their normal forms, it wasn’t an opening its them on their way to Sootopolis I just forgot

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Take a huge grain of salt, Pokenchi is mostly aimed at younger kids and to be frank have disappointed people before

      • UnburdenedLegume

        We have reason to believe they’ll reveal something new because Ohmori is a guest in the show this time

  • I’m trying out charger again. I’m having a really hard time aiming though.

    • Conclusion: Chargers suco

      • Chargers suck and so does my phones keyboard

    • Ultron

      Chargers are complete shit

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Ngl I just want info on what the mascots are, hoping they’re not totally boring and that they either change types or get new abilities (looking at you Kyurem)

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I wonder if they’ll have new abilities or pre existing ones

      But we haven’t had a Box mascot without signature ability since gen 4 sooo

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        I just hope they don’t get Full Metal Body, Shadow Shield, or Prism Armour

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Yeah, it’d feel lazy and the legend will feel less unique

  • The soundtrack for Sun and Moon is probably the best in the series tbh… so many themes are heard throughout the region. The Alola Region theme is all over the place, The Aether Foundation theme is in Guzmas theme and.. it’s just so gooood

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      You mean leitmotifs?

      • Yeah o just couldn’t remember the word >.>

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Best leitmotif is the Tapu one, but I love how Island Trials have their own (Kahuna themes are a fusion of the two) as well as the legendaries

          • Oh shoot never noticed the tapu theme

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I agree, some route themes are great as well

      https://youtu.be/SJrqFYcd6as

  • Bwah Govnah

    so will the Regi trio come back yet again in USUM lol

  • ShinyXatu

    The most important element of these games for me will be the variety of Pokémon. They have said that there will be Pokémon not found in Sun and Moon, which is a great start. I will likely want to shiny hunt in one or both of these versions, so having a wide range of options would be awesome.

    • Bwah Govnah

      it would be and i wish certain pokemon had call rates instead of being unable to call

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Electric/Flying Alolan Mantine that conducts electricity through Water/Steel regional Remoraids 👀

      • Ultron

        Wouldn’t the remoraids be the ones conducting electricity

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          You know what I mean, I’m shit posting and not taking anything seriously

          • Ultron

            Maybe Steel/Flying Mantine, with Electric Remoraid. Mantine has an ability like Dhelmise where it takes STAB damage for electric type attacks. Learns a new move called electric torpedo

  • UnburdenedLegume

    How does a Nuzlocke work? You cant use Pokemon centers right?

    • No you can use centers

    • Well you can but you can choose not to.

      The standard rules are

      Catch only the first Pokémon you find on a route

      Release a Pokémon if it faints (or stash it in the PC. Point is you can’t use it anymore. It’s dead)

      • UnburdenedLegume

        What about starters?

        • It depends. You can choose whichever you want or you can base it off of your trainer card ID. Look up the bulbapedia page for nuzlocke for all the rules and stuff

  • Butter Geek

    When I’ll beat the third gym, will I be able to leave it there and update it when the next patch comes out? (Sage)

    • Seraph The Lava Lamp

      No clue

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      No. Everything you love will be taken away.

      • Butter Geek

        I cannot tell if that’s a joke

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          It’s not

          • Butter Geek

            Oh…

    • Seraph The Lava Lamp

      It depends
      Last time it did not work like that

  • Luigi301

    Looks like it’s 4pm pst

    • Sunny

      Yes

  • ShinyXatu

    No, here’s my actual number-one wish for USUM (or any future Pokémon game): the ability to choose between 2D sprites or 3D models. I know this will probably never happen, but I feel like I would be more inclined to play Pokémon if they looked like how I remember from my childhood. Anyway, post your pipe dreams here.

    • Luigi301

      Unpopular opinion: I wish for Pokemon games to be good again

      • Butter Geek

        They aren’t bad

      • Sun and Moon were good though

      • ShinyXatu

        You’re a brave man for posting that here. I like that.

      • Ultron

        Sun and Moon were better than X&Y for sure, but still paled in comparison to gens 4 and 5, imo. GF isn’t really putting the extra mile in

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        I want them to be as good as RB

        • Seraph The Lava Lamp

          SHUSH

        • ShinyXatu

          GENWUNNER ALERT
          CODE RED…AND BLUE

          • Butter Geek

            ANG GREEN IF YOU’RE A HIPSTER

          • Sunny

            What about Yellow?

          • Butter Geek

            Nobody likes Yellow

          • Sunny

            Not even Genwunners?!

          • Butter Geek

            Nah

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            NEW POKEMONS DESIGN ARE CRAP

            MUK IS SO MUCH BETTER THAN LYCANFLOP

            AAAAAAAAA

          • Luigi301

            It’s true though

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            But it’s nott
            I do admit, I like newer designs more
            But the rest kinda declined

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Which sentence?

            The crap designs one, the muk one or the aaaa one?

          • Luigi301

            The first 2 and I guess the third cuz why not. But yeah as I have mentioned a bunch of times I prefer the more simple designs

          • Butter Geek

            You’re REALLY edgy, aren’t you?

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            *screeching the Gladion theme*

          • Luigi301

            How so? I like my Dewgongs and Lapras’ and Bellsprouts

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            I feel mediocre for all of those

          • Luigi301

            I guess you can’t please everyone. Oh well but wow I’m edgy now? Lol wouldn’t be the first time I was called it. I did start with unpopular opinion tho so it should’ve been expected

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            I ain’t calling you out though
            I’m just saying gen 1s designs bore the fuck out of me

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Pot kettle black

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            If shady was saying it it would be even funnier

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Oh well.

            But tbh, the newer generations also have Mons with simplistic designs as well

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Salandit for example

        • Red and Blue kinda suck tho

          At least compared to every other Pokémon game

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        So basically you want Gen 5 2.0

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Who doesn’t

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Exactly

        • Butter Geek

          That’s Sage

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Yep <3

          • The PinSir is back

            So true

        • Luigi301

          I’ll take gen 3 2.0 if GF doesn’t mess it up like ORAS in terms of content. I’ll take gen 1 further remakes using Alolan forms cuz why not, and I’ll take gen 4 and 5 cuz I need to learn to like sinnoh (also unpopular opinion)

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            oooooh

          • Bwah Govnah

            wow, Not even ORAS made me like gen 3 :3

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            ORAS more like ORASS
            I loved emerald

          • Bwah Govnah

            I didnt like Emerald

        • ShinyXatu

          Actually yes, that’s what I was getting at with my post. The sprites from Black and White were incredible and when we moved to 3D models, something changed for me. Gen 5 is amazing and it was only 5 years ago, as hard as it is to believe…

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Something that shows whiners how overrated their precious Frontier it was 👀

      Jk sidequests, affinities with other characters, and dating

      • ShinyXatu

        Dating made me laugh because it’s actually something I can see happening (as sad as it is).

        • Luigi301

          What do you think people used the messaging system on the pwt (?) the trainer thing that helps you set up battles trades etc for?

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Because it’s already happened in SuMo 👀

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Dating?

        Pokesona confirmed

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I want the pokeheatlon to return so badly….

      • Ultron

        Same

      • ShinyXatu

        Yes, I agree. 100%

    • Battle Frontier and PWT in the same game. Just replace the battle tower with the PWT. And include more than just gym leaders, E4 and Champions. I want

      Lillie
      N
      Eusine
      Zinnia
      Lisia
      Flygon boi from ORAS
      Looker
      Mars
      Maxie
      Archie
      Jupiter
      Saturn
      Bianca
      AZ

      • Ultron

        Misty, Elesa, Volkner pls

        • Well gym leaders included.

          WITH 3D MODELS

          • Ultron

            Yes, but not HGSS Misty though. I didn’t like her hair tbh

  • Pokemon maniac

    Necrozma sun form, and moon form

    • Shady

      I want this freaking badly

      • That’s what the Lunala and Solgaleo things probably are

        • Shady

          No Lunala and Solgaleo r not Necrozma

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp

    TBH I feel bad for USUM..
    All the aggression Pokémon fans have for the issues of the series has been directed at them over various things… I just hope they’re really good

    • Ultron

      Give me battle frontier and all will be forgiven

    • Luigi301

      For me the only way usum will be good is if they do something like bw where it was that beginning transition into 3D for Pokemon. Usum should be the transition from 3ds pixel outlined 3D to switch 3D.

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        Yeshhh
        TBH I felt a real bit of wonder when I started playing SuMo, I adored it… but that disappeared after a while… Black and whites wonder never vanished

        • Luigi301

          Ohhhh and another thing. Get rid of z moves. Megas can stay because I’ve grown to like a few such as medicham but z moves gotta go. Also sun moon were the first games that actually put importance into the story but failed with competitive play after. I beat the game and loved the story but I couldn’t get back into competitive that I did back in xy

          • Ultron

            YES Z-moves are so stupid

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            No one got back into competitive, the tapus caused tier shifts and… well… you see the mess that happened right?

  • The PinSir is back

    Loved the BnHA episode today, it’s setting up so much stuff.

    • Seraph The Lava Lamp

      Yeeessah

      • The PinSir is back

        I’m hyped for finding out more about All for One

        • Seraph The Lava Lamp

          Fun fact, he’s 7 foot

          • The PinSir is back

            Damn

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Yep
            And izuku is 5’5

          • The PinSir is back

            Huh. The more you know

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Yep

    • Golden_Flygon

      Also even though it’s a filler next episode, I’m still excited for the character interactions.

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        Agreed

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp

    SuMo was basically a Pokémon game with the most potential in the entire series and could have been perfect but all the the things that would have made it perfect were either underutilized or ignored
    Hence why I’m excited for USUM, which I hope fixes this

    • Butter Geek

      it had potential to be perfect, but i turned out to be really good

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        It did… that’s what made me so sad

  • Golden_Flygon

    5 hours remaining till Pokenchi 😀

    • Siri lied to me… she said it’s going to be 11 o’clock my time but it’s actually just 6… -.-

    • Seraph The Lava Lamp

      Oh BoI

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      So I have to watch it at 1am .-.

      • Butter Geek

        Same #EuropeansUnite

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Except british

          • Butter Geek

            Still europe

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Fuck you were still European geographically >:(

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            I said that because you guys have different time zones than most of us 😛

            And I wanted to see how many british will get mad by my comment

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            None 👀

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Suuuuuuuuuuuure 😉

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I’m no British I’m Scottish

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            Brotish

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I’m awa to deck you ya wee raj ur da sells avon

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Good. Scotland better than Britain 👀

      • Golden_Flygon

        That sucks

    • Bwah Govnah
      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        Or hopefully one of the other two ;2

      • Golden_Flygon

        Watch as they say that it got delayed it to February

        • Seraph The Lava Lamp

          If it makes the game better…

          • Golden_Flygon

            ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • Shady
    • Seraph The Lava Lamp

      EWW WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED GO LYCANROC IT LOOKED LIKE AN EIGHT YEAR OLD DECIDED TO PLAY WITH A PAINT TOOL

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Ugly asf

    • Butter Geek

      Put some emeralds on him and it’ll be good

    • Luigi301

      If this was actually what it looked like I swear this and the necrozma things shown in the first trailer will be on my “Pokemon I think look horrible” list

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      The colour scheme doesn’t do it for me

      • Shady

        Disagree with that one

    • Shady

      I know wat u gonna say about this ……but I just want to share wat I feel I know it’s childish but kids r artist by nature so it’s not a bad thing I guess

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        This isn’t so much art as it is a different color scheme with a horn slapped on

        • Shady

          These colors works good together …..The only prplm he have the art quality …………and I can imagine him with good one that’s it.

          • Seraph The Lava Lamp

            It looks like it’s mane is made of shit… like literal shit

          • Shady

            I don’t fucking care wat u think ….I said wat I said don’t try to drag this topic on another place read clearly before posting.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            You literally just derailed Star’s comment above, check yourself before you wreck yourself

          • Shady

            Stop acting clever plz u seem new here …….every body know i was mocking her …………and this is not ur business ok?

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Her comment wasn’t your business either if you were going to comment something completely different 👀

          • Shady

            This is pathetic …..I didn’t judge her like u did to me so this is the case ……how old r u?

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Dude I’m not being serious lol, who’d say check yourself before you wreck yourself unironically lol

            How old are you that you don’t understand that lol

          • Shady

            I didn’t feel that tbh ……..my feeling is great though.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I have no clue what you mean but okaub

          • Shady

            wat okaub means?

  • When Unova remakes are made in 2025 Elesa William be a literal 3D model

    • ELESA WILL BE

      • GOD DAMN IT AUTOCORRECT

        • Luigi301

          What color hair will she have in the remake?

          • I hope Black because I loved that design

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Purple

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      lol when I googled images for Elesa william, the actual Elesa from BW appeared o-o

  • Golden_Flygon

    Also decided to change back to my old username

  • Butter Geek

    EYES OF LYCANROCS ARE RUBY SAPHIRE EMERALD COLOURS OMA

    • Hoenn confirmed?

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Screw Sinnoh

        Pokemon ORAS remakes is where at

      • Butter Geek

        for a 2014 remake

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp

    Game freak: hasn’t made a truly good game since 2010ish
    4chan team: had internal conflicts, is 4chan, probably lacks GFs resources, makes possibly the best Pokémon game ever, aka Sage

    Jesus fucking Christ GF please step it up

    • Golden_Flygon

      We can only pray that they go all out with DP remakes in 2019

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        All out…
        Remakes

        Yeahhhh I’m not sure if that’s possible anymore considering the most likely director

    • I wish I could play Sage without the studdering… ;~;

      Ya know I can’t even imagine what the best Pokémon game would be like

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        If it works you’ll know what it’s like
        You just gotta keep trying! I know it will work!

    • Butter Geek

      Sage: Great, very BW-ish
      Sun Moon: Greater, diffrent than the previous games

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        Seriously picture SuMo mixed with BW
        That’s what I view USUM like

  • Luigi301

    Ok guys I feel like everyone should already know this by now but remember. Do not overhype this. It can be something so little.

    On the other hand, I believe they announced bw2 on one of these Pokemon shows. I remember it like it were _____ years (whenever they were announced). I was watching the show being streamed by some guy and he went nuts when they announced them

    • They announced HGSS too

      • Luigi301

        I actually did not know this. I really started watching the during back during bw2 announcement time. Since then the show has been boring and a disappointment. Thanks for telling me this

    • Seraph The Lava Lamp

      We need anything we can grasp

  • EarthenWarrior

    Yo I need help making a Discord Server

    • Luigi301

      I started the PJ one so I can help if you want.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I have the server but I don’t know how to send invites
        Like codes and what not

        • Luigi301

          There should be a little person and + icon for inviting. It will give you a url that you can post

          • Luigi301

            Should be found right next to the name of the main text channel Which is your “general” channel when you first set up

        • Luigi301

          Or if you click on the server name itself you should get a pull down menu that includes notification settings and invite people

    • MenacingCascoon

      Ooooh. What type of server? Is it Pokemon related? Because we have one like that in the discord already?

  • Seraph The Lava Lamp

    So I decided “maybe I should give battleborn another chance! Let’s check the updates!”

    …still nothing… even the most loyal people are getting pissed off…
    And I’m kinda glad I dropped it

    • Bwah Govnah

      its all about OVerwatch now

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        It’s always been about Overwatch 😛

    • Glad you got

      Over

      It

      • Seraph The Lava Lamp

        (Rapid dabbing)

  • HAHAHAHA

    I AM THE KETCHUP QUEEN!!!!

    • Seraph The Lava Lamp

      Mayo

    • Shady

      Do u know Ash Ketchup? he’s a freaking punk.

      • What? No… I’m talking about Splatoon

        • Shady

          Ok I know and I am talking about Ash Ketchup

          • but why

          • Shady

            Ur Ketchup Queen and didn’t know Ash Ketchup wtf?

          • WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT IM SO CONFUSED

          • Shady

            Never mind I just like missing with u from time to time

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I’m proud, now beat up those mayo followers :^]

    • Ultron

      Mayonaise is disgusting

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Agreed, mayonnaise is better, mayonaise is missing a n-gredient

        • Ultron

          :/

    • EarthenWarrior

      WHY DO THINGS CONSTANTLY DISTRACT ME DURING SPLATFEST

  • Golden_Flygon

    Favorite 3rd version/Sequel? I absolutely loved Platinum, I logged in so many hours of playing on it before I lost the cartridge.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Emerald

    • MenacingCascoon

      Emerald . Easily. No doubt. No contest.

    • Platinum

      hands down

      • Golden_Flygon

        Wasn’t the Underground so much fun?

        • Imagine it with better online functionality… all of your friends can appear if you are online at the same time!

          • Golden_Flygon

            That would be so much fun

          • Maybe throw in some better traps and more mini games

          • Golden_Flygon

            Can you imagine if there was a Teleporting Trap that took you to another side of the Underground lol

          • But if you came up you’d be on the other side of Sinnoh 0.o

            SPEEDRUN STRAT

          • Ultron

            Well no cause you always return to where you started

          • oh thats riiiiiggght…

          • Golden_Flygon

            yep

        • Ultron

          It could be, but perhaps it was a bit too repetitive. I always played tag with my friends down there

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Because I actually have taste, certainly not emerald. Probably platinum

    • Deerlia

      Imma be an oddball here and say Black and White 2.
      I thought it fixed several limited species issues with 1, and even though not as great a story, a good ending to the saga.

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        I heard that game had a really good post game :0

        • Ultron

          A lot of stuff to do

        • Golden_Flygon

          There’s so much to do in it

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Then I hope USUM are like this, it has the same director after all

      • Golden_Flygon

        True, it had a great dex and a decently good ending for the Gen 5 story. Loved the Gameplay

    • Ultron

      Platinum..followed closely by B2W2 and then Emerald. Crystal and Yellow weren’t as innovative

    • I’d say Platinum for my Houndoom

  • Shady

    Is this pic confirmed or still? http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1501855648225.jpg

    • Still up in the air

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      False asf

    • Golden_Flygon

      Dunno. It looks legit but I’m taking a grain of salt for it.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      This art doesn’t look very official.

      Specially with those unnatural long arms

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Long and thin, actual sticks

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          He can be an ARMS character

    • Ultron

      I’d say super fake, the scale is all off. The old guy looks gigantic

  • Deerlia

    Good afternoon, Deers~
    I updated Nether Nihilego to match the style Deerlia was shown in.
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5946773ff68c68b7c320dac8bf2445bbec748a07621430579ebd5dcf056fc658.png
    Hope you like it~

    • I think the only issue is that it looks metalic like a robot. Doesn’t match Nihiligo’s look. I’m sure that could be fixed with less dark spots 😛

      • Deerlia

        It’s good advice, and could potentially be fixed, i’ll give it some thought, thanks deer~

    • I like it. I like it alot

    • Golden_Flygon

      I like the glassy/metallic look to it, it fits its out-of-this-world theme

  • Black and White’s level of story
    Platinum’s Post game
    And everything HGSS

    These were the ingredients for the perfect Pokemon Games. But Professor Masuda accidentally added an extra ingredient to the concoction. Chemical Lillie…

    AND THUS THE PERFECT POKEMON GAMES WERE BORN

    Using their entertaining gameplay, Platinum, BW, and HGSS have dedicated their lives to 10/10 scores and being amazing!

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      I’d say that Black and White had the far better post games, and if everything else HGSS means that terrible level curve then hellllll no

      • yeahhhh no they dont. I replayed it a while back andwas surprised how little there really was. HGSS and Platinum had way better post games

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          HGSS has a shitty Kanto tacked on and Platinum has one island

          Unova has half a region to explore and unlike other first versions had decent E4 rematches

          • Luigi301

            you spelled amazing kanto wrong

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

          • wtf? Kanto isn’t so shitty it makes it worse. YOU HAVE AN ENTIRE REGION TO EXPLORE COMPARED TO HALF AN EMPTY REGION

            like… what the heck are you talking about?

          • Luigi301

            seriously. Kanto was another whole region to do another 8 gyms and everything. how can someone even call that a bad postgame?

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Because it’s terribly underutilised. You could’ve slapped those eight gyms in Johto and it makes no difference

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            You’re exploring a full empty region with simplified areas, little to nothing to do but challenge gym leaders (seriously has no plot at all) compared to half a region with an actual objective (finding the sages), that actually has interesting varying routes, a decent level curve after the initial raise, and isn’t just a dumbed down version of a past region tacked on as fanbait

          • How is it fanbait when it was in the second fucking game ever?

            and its empty because its obviously past its prime. There are power outages, pokemon tower has been made into a radio tower, their champion disappeared, cinnabar is destroyed. It’s a shitty situation

            SUBTEXT

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            No, it’s empty because it’s a second region done by a company that clearly can’t utilise the idea right. Removal of areas, downsizing areas, keeping the shitty level curve from the first region in the game. It’s all baaaad. It’s not subtext at all, it’s just trying to rationalise GameFreak’s lukewarm attempt at a second region

            All imo

            Because the first game would’ve had fans lol

          • But you’re like objectively wrong about the fanbait.

            They wanted to fit it in because they expected it to be the last game. It provides closure to pokemon Red and Blue and it is a technical marvel they fit it in at all.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Closure? They closed the story in Johto. Kanto feels like an afterthought

          • Luigi301

            thats the point. its postgame

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Well designed post game =/= afterthought

          • Luigi301

            8 extra gyms to battle, updated e4 after first run, and gathering all the leaders into the dojo for rematches =/= afterthought. also besides you have to understand that even getting a second region in johto at the time was a big accomplishment

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            The eight extra gyms were like the only thing in Kanto to do, other games have had E4 rematches without a tacked on second region, just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. Kanto severely suffers from being so empty imo

          • Luigi301

            but not all games had gym leader rematches. in hgss at least, you had to find all the gym leaders to send them to the dojo. also you got to catch the legendaries that were in kanto. mewtwo, zapdos, moltres, articuno. what else did there need to be?

          • I am baffled right now honestly. I dont even know what to say. Like.. no.

            Red from Gen 1 is there. They game literally ends with you fighting the protagonist from the last game. HOW IS THAT NOT AWESOME?

            You see all the gym leaders again, people talk about Red, Pallet Town is so melancholy. It has such a great tone.

            Just the fact a GBC game had two regions is incredible.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            The Kanto and Johto gym leaders were never interesting characters to me

            Pallet Town doesn’t come as melancholic to me, it comes as a mum worried her dumb son hasn’t called

            One epic battle doesn’t justify how poorly Kanto was handled imo

            Sorry you can’t process opinion about it

          • Its because you’re expecting two games in one on the game boy color. Thats just being unreasonable. It was handled in the best possible way. It is your opinion but its a pretty shitty opinion because of super unrealistic expectations

          • Luigi301

            so what counts as a postgame to you then? cuz a meaningless story like in ORAS with the deoxys thing was stupid, or the looker thing in xy was also meaningless and had nothing to do with the story of the game. postgame is postgame not “ok the main story is over but we want to extend the main story into the postgame therefore it not actually being postgame”

    • Platinum’s post game wasn’t that far off from the originals tho? Excluding BF

      • Yes it was. Quite a bit

        • Like what have I missed? The villa?

          • The entire other island
            Bird trio
            Regi Trio

            oh wait

          • Other island? Are talking about where Mt.Stark is and the resorts?

            They were in DP and they barely changed in Platinum

    • Ultron

      Well shit, now the PPG theme is stuck in my head

      • Deerlia

    • Golden_Flygon

      Yep XD
      I was initially so confused why it was there

  • Golden_Flygon

    I have a question for you all: If you were in the Pokemon World and you wanted to hang out with a Pokemon character at a local restaurant, who would it be? Kinda stems from how you can interact with SM characters at restaurants sometimes.

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Red because he’s daddy asf in SuMo

    • I want Elesa to give me emotional clarity.

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Why would it be Dragon tho

      • Butter Geek

        The only green-related type that kinda matches one of the lycans

        • Bwah Govnah

          That makes no sense, so i have brown eyes does that make me fucking rock or ground

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          The colour of its eyes doesn’t justify its typing, midnight has red eyes yet is not fire types

    • Bwah Govnah

      where does the dragon come from?

      • Vlad Vanguine

        Where does the dragon typing EVER come from when dealing with Pokémon? They’ve slapped dragon and fairy on to so many Pokémon with no logic behind it at this point

    • Golden_Flygon

      Even though I’d dig another Rock/Dragon type, it doesn’t really fit with Lycanroc at all

    • Not really, I would rather have for second typing Psychic, Ghost, or None just be pure Rock

  • I wish I could be half as cool as Elesa is

    • Golden_Flygon

      But u are already kool

    • Ultron

      Just dress as nice as her and fake the rest

          Wait, why would surgery be necessary xD

          • Butter Geek

            There’s a lot of “rest” to fake

            Shut up Butt

  • Nah you wanna talk about kanto being handled badly… what the hell was up with Red and Blue in Sun and Moon?

    You only get to battle one of them (and honestly idk why you would ever pick blue over red) then you have to go through the battle tree to battle them again.

    At least they have awesome redesigns….

      From what people said Leaf isnt canon

  • MenacingCascoon

    Im saying this now, but If I see the Battle tree is the same, but just decided to add more characters Im going to be HIGHLY annoyed

  • Sunny

    So assuming that we do get Johto Alola forms in USUM, who do you want to get an Alola form. (Excluding Johto starters because it is already a given that they need some love and may or may not get them in these games).

    • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah
      • Sunny

        That is pretty sweet. It would be awesome if they did this but it might be a bit similar to Alola Exeggutor. And I feel as if they might just go the route of rock/fighting for the lulz.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Noctowl, Ice/Psychic or Ice/Flying

      • Sunny

        Ice/Flying, Despite not being defensively good as a typing always appealed to me conceptually. So I would be excited for this.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Yeah it is terrible defensively, and they’d have alot to do to make its’ stats viable too. I just want an arctic owl really.

    • Golden_Flygon

      Ledian. Poor thing hasn’t gotten any love or buffs ever

      • Sunny

        Make it bug/steel and hope it’s better than that Wormadam-trash.

        • Golden_Flygon

          And give it more of a special attacking stat with more special attacking moves

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Noctowl Ground/Flying
      Sunflora Grass/Fire
      Phanphy+Donphan Grass/Ground
      Slugma+Macargo Ice/Rock

      • Sunny

        I’ve actually thought of the Sunflora and Donphan before. I’ve also imagined them as Grass/Fairy and Ground/Water respectively.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Always wanted a burrow owl Pokemon and Noctowl would be a great option for that, albeit via a regional variant.

          • Sunny

            I haven’t given Noctowl that much thought with it being a regional bird. But a regional variant can go a lot of ways.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Also had this idea for a Bug/Psychic regional variant for Spinarak and Ariados

          • Sunny

            The question is, will it be worthy enough for Guzma’s team.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Sunflora
      Magcargo
      Jumpluff
      Ariados
      Furret

        Some Gen 2 Pokémon like Magcargo and Jumpluff do need some love.

    • MenacingCascoon

      BEllossom- Grass Fairy
      Politoed- Water Grass
      Ariados- Ghost Poison
      Granbull- Fairy Fighting

      • Sunny

        Water/Grass is pretty nice typing and unique as well. I also had similar thoughts for Granbull.

      • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

        I LOVE THE GHOST POISON

    • Ultron

      Lanturn: Electric/Dark
      Politoed: Fairy/Grass
      Ursaring: Fighting/Poison
      Octillery: Psychic

      • Sunny

        I am kind of excited to see Lanturn as the first Electric/Dark type.

    • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

      Noctowl Ice/Flying Like Monkey said
      Ledian Bug/Fighting
      Sudowoodo Water/Rock Sudowoodos act like a protector for corsolas against mareenie (come at me earthen)
      Maybe the Teddiursa line being based off a Black bear?

      • Sunny

        Would the Teddiursa line have an added dark typing, become entirely dark type, or is there a more sensible typing that I am missing?

        • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

          Dark type would be fine since Alola loves Alolan Dark types

          • Sunny

            And Alolan Steel Types. Only Togedamaru.
            And Alolan Ice Types. Only Crabomiable.
            This is of course excluding legends and sublegends.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I would say Dark/Fighting but then it’s just Pangoro 2.0.

          • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

            yea i was thinking that but like its bear brother was already fighting/Dark

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I mean it could work if they completely re-did the stats and made it very different to play. I would say Dark/Fairy because of Fairy type being moon related, but I’m not sure on it.

          • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

            make it based off a care bear lol

          • Sunny

            Normal/Fairy for the win! At least that is the typing I would imagine a Care Bear to have.

      Psychic/Steel Sun themed US exclusive magcago
      (Still would prefer more Kanto alolan forms tho)

      • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

        Why would it be a ghost?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          He wants them to copy the cover legends.

          • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

            oh but why Ursaring?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Dunno, because it is moon themed?

      • Sunny

        It’s quite likely that we would get a version exclusive for a pair of Alola forms. It would be interesting assuming if the typings they have still matched up with our cover legends which we still have no solid info on.

      Alolan Crobat Poison/Dark with the ability levitate?

        • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

            Fruit Zubat, Fruit Golbat and fruit Crobat

            Uses its feet like vines to sleep while hanging from trees after being displaced from the caves by a new predator. Also changed to be diurnal and its alimentation is fully based on fruits causing it to lose its toxins and become grass type.

            Golbat

            Uses its tongue as an extremity to pick up fruits mid flight. It has developed good sight and lost its echolocation

            Crobat

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Hadn’t given it much thought but maybe something in the lines of Intimidate or a new one where when hit by a Fighting type move, your next physical attack deals 50% more damage.

      It should have an ability that makes it Half fighting at day and half dark at night, and a Green Flash related Z-move/signature move

        Idk Bout the z move but the ability idea is honestly interesting.. but it could get bothersome when you want to use it online

        • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

          it would be confusing

            Hmm… ok

          • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

            Sorry no offense to you

  • Fedex

    I’m totally behind you guys but I’ve just almost finished AS. Amazing game. Where’s that dude that said ORAS aren’t good???
    I’ll give him a piece of my rage!!

    • Armaggedon16

      Hello. It’s me

      • Fedex

        ARGHHHH..hello 😂

    • They are good the first time around but the mor you play it the more you realize Emerald is better

      • Armaggedon16

        The more you play it the more you realize that every pokemon game is unutilized potential and gamefreak makes questionable game decisions

        • true

        • Fedex

          That’s GF for you but they do alot of good things too!
          Soaring impressed me for example

          • Armaggedon16

            Rangers did it better

          • Fedex

            Never played Rangers. What were they like??

          • Armaggedon16

            I’m probably the only person that liked them lol.
            The third one has a ride pokemom feature (I’m seeing a pattern here lol) ans you can ride latios and staraptor and it’s better than soaring

          • Fedex

            They look good 2 me tbh but never got round to playing them. Who knows I might one day!

      • Fedex

        I disagree. Pre game the no BF made me anxious but after playing through I think there’s no comparison. ORAS are well polished games.

        • ehhh….. I wouldnt say well polished at all….

          The BF being removed is pretty inexcusable

          • Fedex

            That made me mad as you can see in my DP, I’m still mad 😛
            I’ve played Emerald like a million times and have 2 say ORAS improved on almost everything. They were really enjoyable.

          • My issues with oras are mainly

            – Really really bad remixes of hoenn music. It may just be the soundfont but they lost all charm the original GBA games had. Gen 6 had this problem as a whole and is certainly something they fixed in Sun and Moon. The original compositions like for Zinnia and Wally are fantastic though if a bit repetitive.
            – No battle frontier.
            – Delta Episode was little more than a fetch quest with nothing to fetch. The only good part was at the end where stuff actually happened
            -They ruined the Sky Pillar
            -NPC redesigns felt bland
            -Really easy
            – Legendaries are just given out

          • Fedex

            Why I think they’re better.
            – Graphics. Hoenn was just stunning.
            – Better story we had more of May/Steven/Wally even Aqua/Magma but what I liked most was the Primal/mega lore.
            – Delta Episode was a great expansion. Story doesn’t end after Sootoplis.
            – Soaring was fun.
            – Dexnav was game breakingly good.
            – Subtle changes in everything story, overworld etc

            I thought music was good, soaring and Wally’s theme for example.
            Only thing Emerald had going was BF, GL rematches and more challenging main game.
            But yh no BF was really frustrating but I’ve gotten over that somehow. I wish they were more challenging too

          • https://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thumb/6/6e/Hoenn_Route_103_RS.png/300px-Hoenn_Route_103_RS.png

            https://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thumb/7/74/Hoenn_Route_103_ORAS.png/300px-Hoenn_Route_103_ORAS.png

            -idk I think RSE was way more vibrant
            – yeah… yeah for sure
            – It was pretty bad IMO. You just go place to place to place. Nothing really happens
            – Fair enough
            – YEAH WHY DIDNT THEY BRING IT BACK?
            – I guess
            – Again those two were original compositions. The only exceptions I can think of are like… Team Magma/Aqua leader themes and… Vs Deoxsys?

            Verdanturf is so bland now which is sad because it was so beautiful.

          • Fedex

            – I think the big thing with RSE was it was a HUGE jump in graphics from GSC. I still remember when I first played Emerald the graphics blew me away.
            ORAS are a good step up from XY but not as big as RSE were.

            – Perhaps but it’s still has some interesting points and better than no post game story at all.

            – Hmm I agree with Vendaturf and some others but some of the themes like leader themes, evil team encounters, littleroot and some route themes I liked alot. Oh and Foretree.

            In the end what I liked about ORAS was the experience. But I’ll never forget the originals!

    • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

      Sup

  • Monkeyfuzz

    I for one am very excited at any new form we might get. I just hope it’s good. I will probably use it in USUM if I like it enough, probably have to shiny breed again ;P

    • LoquaciousUxie

      YaY sHiNy BrEeDiNg FoR nEw FoRmS

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I just hope the Swap method continues in USUM.

        • LoquaciousUxie

          Yeah, same, I wonder if GF knew about it, they probably didn’t rebuild the breeding system for this game so we’re probably good.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I think it was purposefully in built for regular breeding, the shiny swapping is just a bonus of that. It would be annoying for them to rebuild it again, I don’t want to Jynx it though.

  • EarthenWarrior

    AURGH I SWEAR KOMMO-O BETTER GET AURA SPHERE
    All of my focus blasts missed costing me the damn game

    • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

      Focus better

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It might get a wider Physical Movepool too.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Or MAybe Try Physical Kommo-o

      • EarthenWarrior

        but that just leaves me with Sky Uppercut
        we need another special fighting type that isn’t Keldeo and Kommo-o is just better off a special attacker

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It might gain Close Combat, Iron Head, Drain Punch amongst other things.

          • EarthenWarrior

            that would be good….but i really rather have it as a special attacker

      i like it

    • ShinyXatu

      I’d like to hear what reason they give for this form not being in Sun and Moon.

      • MenacingCascoon

        We didnt do enough research on Green Sun in HawaiiDusk didnt exist then”

        Or

        No explanation like z moves..

        • MenacingCascoon

          That does make me wonder though. We havent had 3rd versions Since Platinum, so I wonder how they will work timeline wise. Will they be Alternate alternate timelines?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Promotional reasons. I mean, Ash-Greninja didn’t appear in X/Y

      • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

        Rockruff didnt understand the true meaning of sunsets till i built this break wall between me and it

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Eclipse form, Special Green Sunset form, just because we can really form.

    • Please let it look like this

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Inb4 only Ash gets it until Gen 8 event. Tomycase always does good stuff.

    • Shady

      That’s better than the others

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    So Sophocles’ Charjabug is getting a focus episode

    Miracles do happen

    • Butter Geek

      Evo?

  • So if USUM are alternate universes…. which one is canon?

    Sun and Moon?
    or Ultra Sun and Moon?

    If its USUM then it better not fuck up Lillie’s story

    • Butter Geek

      It’s just one of many alternate pokemon time lines. Maybe it’s the “until XY not counting remakes”universe where mega evolution doesn’t exist

    • LoquaciousUxie

      I think Pokémon games being canon in general is tenuous and not something GameFreak thinks about honestly.

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      There is no canon universe, as it’s all one big canon multiverse

      • Well no like..

        FRLG + ORAS > DPPT + HGSS > BW > B2W2 > XY > SuMo

        there is a canon. The only multiverse stuff is the other version and if there are megas or not

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          That’s not been confirmed as canon though? That was given as a timeline, but never stated as canon. And when you establish a multiverse, there can’t be a canon. There can be the continuation of a specific time line, but everything is equally canon. Heck, in your supposed canon there’s already multiple alternate timelines (Fire Red is a parallel timeline of Leaf Green, HG to SS, B2 to W2)

          Also BW2 happens the same time as Kalos

          • idk… I think it depends how you think of what is canon.

            But B2W2 does not happen at the same time as Kalos because Colress is mentioned to being in Kalos but that cant be possible if he is in Unova

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            In a multiverse, to refer to something as canon would mean it partains to one timeline (for example, ‘this game is canon to this timeline’). However, everything is canon to its own timeline, and we’ve never been given any specific timelines (such as Fire Red to Soul Silver to X to Moon or anything) and if consider the idea that GameFreak wants every playthrough to be seen as its own timeline then it just makes canon arbitrary unless we’re comparing the game multiverse to another multiverse (such as anime or manga)

            Also:

          • I hate talking about Pokemon time lines tbh… I wish GF didn’t complicate it with the megas >.>

            And huh… That’s really weird… I really thought B2W2 was before X and Y

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I like it, they’ve been alluding to it since Black and White and it’s a really cute nod to different versions + allows them to explain away everything they add

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      The one with the better story

  • ShinyXatu

    I still want to hear about a limited edition 2DS XL for USUM. That would probably be enough to make me get one. It would actually make sense, since blue and orange were already the default colors. Just put blue on the bottom shell and orange on the top with a cool design and BAM, instant money.

    • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

    Anyone still playing Sage? I’m giving up looking for the Bear and Blue Racoon in the Forest I think, not even sure they are in it. Anyone know if there’s a Fire or Leaf Stone in this Demo?

    • EarthenWarrior

      i’m playing it RN

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Did you find the Bear or Blue Racoon? Any evo stones?

        • Butter Geek

          Sadly there are no evo stones avaible yet. Which sucks, cuz I wanted to evolve my Pawter

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I want to evolve my Fire Rabbit. I did find a Moon Stone, not sure what evolves by it though.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Same with my Lava Rock

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I guess we’ll just have to make do and look at pictures of their final forms with longing.

          • Butter Geek

            WAIT… YOU FOUND A MOONSTONE?… WIKI SAYS YOU CAN’T… MAYBE THERE’S A CHANCE FOR OTHER STONES TOO

        Yeah, it is quite like HGSS which I like.

    • Butter Geek

      I am

    • I can’t, but want to badly

      Mostly so I can be sad about how I’m now inadequate to 4chan

      • Monkeyfuzz

        When you can use a computer you should. It’s only a demo still but quite long.

  • LoquaciousUxie

    Wait, maybe Rockruffs evolution will be determined by actual time of day instead of which game you have, sorry if old news

    • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

      there is no old news since news never existed for USUM

      • LoquaciousUxie

        I mean if a million people already suggested this hypothesis

    • Monkeyfuzz

      If only, it might have 2 new forms and still be version exclusive just because they can.

      • Dazzling Marina

        Maybe if you evolve it during the day in UM you get the one on corocoro, with the body of Midday, but still under Lunala’s influence, and then the other way around for Ultra Sun

    • EarthenWarrior

      my guess predating to the site’s data
      “When Rockruff is bathed in an abundance of solar/lunar energy, it evolves into its Midnight Form. In the world of Pokémon Moon, Solgaleo’s/Lunala’s influence causes Rockruff to evolve into this form.”

      so my guess is that they might try to something with the absence of Solgaleo/Lunala like we have no idea is Cosmog is the only one of its kind and that maybe there’s more, or the ones we know are in the Ultra Space and not radiating energy

      Its the excitement. RSE uses much more excite and trumpets. The gba sound makes it even more exciting. And a lot of time RSE has these little background sounds ORAS doesnt have (or uses very quietly)

      Is that contagious?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Highly.

        It was 1% encounter and I finally found it. I think the Bear isn’t in this demo.

        • Butter Geek

          Thought about catching him… But I did encounter him, I kinda regret not catching him

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh, yeah it took ages to find her, I nearly gave up. It was worse than finding Snome.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      It has an amazing typing

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Yep, hope GF gives us a Normal/Ghost soon.

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Yeah, these two are some of my favourite typings

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Sheet ghost pls

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            UUGHGHGH SHEET POKEMON? THEYRE RUNNING OUTOF IDEES

            I bet it’d look very adorable :3

  • Is Pokémon Sage completed?

    • No just a 3 gym demo

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Unfortunately not.

    • Butter Geek

      Some would disagree on the post game part… but not me!

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        No one would disagree that SuMo has a better post game than Kanto lol

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          At least RGBY Kanto

        • Fedex

          If they ever revisited Kanto which I hope they do. They’ll have to completely revamp the story, region etc

  • Fedex

    Burnt ma Hawaiian pizza today
    Shoulda cooked it on aloha temperature

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Predictions:

    -Short trailer
    -Mascot reveals (Psychic/Fire and Psychic/Ice or Psychic/Fairy)
    -No Lycanroc because that’s for the anime and CoroCoro to reveal

    • Sunny

      Agree

    • Butter Geek

      Psychic fire and Psychic water/Psychic dark

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        I could see Pyschic/Water maaaaybe but seeing as the only tie Dark has to the moon is umbreon + its Japanese name is Evil I doubt it

        Psychic/Ice – That color scheme + Lunatone learns ice moves

        Pyschic/Fairy – Moonblast, Moonlight

        • Butter Geek

          Then Water cause Fire and water has not been done yet in mascot legends (it was almost the case with lugia, but GF f*cked that up)

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Primal Groupon and Kyogre

            Lugia and Ho-oh as well as base Groudon and Kyogre have a fire VS water theme

          • Butter Geek

            But not typing-wise. And yeah, I forgot about ORAS

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Predictions:

      – Omori tells us what the game’s about and makes some jokes
      – The same trailer from before ;3

      • Butter Geek

        that’s more than usual on pokenchi

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        Remember the ‘there’s more than 10 new Pokemon’ incident?

        Loved it

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          I really hope there’s another moment like that

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            ‘At least one Pokemon gets a new form!’

    • Sunny

      Predictions:
      -Omori pops out of a prop he has been hiding behind during the entire show and tackles the person trying to show a new trailer. Proceeds to say “stay tuned for Pokémon USUM news”.
      -Pokenchi ends.

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        I wouldn’t even be mad

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        If that happens it’d make my entire day

      • Fedex

        Hahaha

    • Armaggedon16

      Actual prediction.
      Lycanroc and a small scene of the legends like oras

    • Chris Mckenzie

      i think we should have a ground/fairy type called tapu bobo a fire/fairy called tapu jiki and finally the real leader of the guardians will be a dragon/fairy tapu upat https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b2627b486ab9922105efc9ef3a618f95c1e3790a90bab31ebb6f264472199951.jpg and the evil guardian will be named tapu baba a dark/fairy pokemon

      • Ultron

        I wish tapu bulu was colored different…

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          It’s the guardian of the red island :p

  • Butter Geek

    I’m going to make my fan game on the same programs as Sage, I wonder If my fangame will be ever as good as Sage

  • Ultron

    So I turned my brightness WAY down and turned off auto brightness and after an hour of playing splatoon in the handheld I’m at 15%. What the fuck.

    • Fedex

      So basically does the switch have sub par battery life? *Don’t own one atm *

      • The battery life is actually pretty good. I usually lasts as long as an average play session anyways depending on the game but it shouldnt be THAT bad. i think he just has a defective switch.

        It is possible the percentage just is incorrect. That seems to be a issue

        • Ultron

          I want to say it’s something with the new update because it was never like this before.

          • Fedex

            Could be. How are they compared to the new 3DS/2DS models?

          • Ultron

            Eh my new 3DS XL gets a bit better battery like probably 3-3.5? I haven’t played for such a session in a good while though so I could be wrong.

          • Fedex

            Hmm I never look that deep as I usually always have a charger nearby.
            Btw im using the 2DS XL!

          • Ultron

            Nice. You like it?

          • I can play Breath of the Wild for 3 hours. I imagine 2D indie and retro games like shovel knight or the NeoGeo games get better battery life. my 3DS lasts a lot longer but I’m willing to bet thats on the games and less on the system

      • Ultron

        In the handheld, yes, but normally I get 2/5-3 hours of battery life playing Zelda..

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Predictions:
    Lycanroc reveal (because i think they wont use the Anime to reveal something like that)
    Mascots info
    Short trailer

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Why not? They used it to reveal Megazard X and even then it’s on CoroCoro’s cover so it should be CoroCoro revealing that it not the anime

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I would agree, if there wasn’t new merchandise involved.

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          I guess but I still think it’d be weird for CoroCoro just to recap if we’re getting into the actual news cycle

          I guess Pokenchi might just show a clip and CoroCoro goes into detail?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Wouldn’t be the first time Corocoro simply recapped information. I’m not going to claim anything, but just saying that it wont be surprising if Lyca is revealed in Pokenchi

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I know but I just feel it’s weird if they just recap when it finally looks like we’re getting news and stuff? Anyways I guess we should just be grateful we’re getting one thing now XD

          • Sunny

            Actually now that I think about Coro Coro is officially released in the 11th or 12th in Japan. The Pokémon episode this week is on the 10th even in Japan. Thus if it is not shown on Pokenchi today and there are no other news announcements until the Pokémon episode. Than the anime will technically and legally be the first thing to reveal Lycanroc’s new form.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Corocoro officially ”leaks” on the 10th in Europe/NA but it’ll be the 11th in Japan due to time zone

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    Besides the confirmed Mascot legends + Lycanroc, and speculated Mimikyu and Tapu, what new non-Alolan forms do you guys expect or want to see?

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      New non alolan forms Pokemons?

      Aa new Oricorio form

    • Butter Geek

      More alolan forms of kanto mons
      Lillie as the Ice specializing champion
      Komala evo
      MORE COOL ICE TYPES

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        All of these don’t match the question at all??

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          I think you skipped a key word in your question

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            ‘what new non-Alolan forms do you guys expect or want to see?’

            Not Alola Forms
            Not trainer speculation
            Not evo speculation

    • Fedex

      With this long intentional period of no news. I expect a trailer/gameplay footage and/or something to get us speculating.
      E.g. like how they revealed the frozen map of Unova for BW2.
      I remember them days were endless speculation!

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        I miss the crazy speculation of a new game :0

        • Fedex

          Me too. It may be the most fun part as a fan! For me BW2 were the best of them all. Especially that map that was crazy!

      • Ultron

        Sucks that there’s almost nothing to speculate about for USUM…

        • Fedex

          I know but guess what when we do get something we’ll be more hyped.
          Can’t wait tho!

    • Sunny

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Not yet anyway

      • Butter Geek

        read my post again

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          oh……………ok. I get it………*sigh* I’m very tired right now lol

  • Fedex

    Who remembers when the frozen Unova map was revealed. The speculation was endless. It was fun too.

  • Fedex

    I believe Shigeru Omori directed ORAS.
    I wonder who’ll be overseeing USUM!

    • i think it was the B2W2 guy which makes me worried for the plot but hopeful for the post game

      • Ghost of Leaks Past

        BW2 still had one of the better plots in Pokemon? Better than Gens I-III and VI imo

        • Fedex

          I agree BW2 was fun, plot wise. Especially because it was the first sequel.

          • Fedex

            I think GEN 5 were the best games in the series esp. Story/Plot wise.
            The sequel idea was just great and well executed.

        • Sunny

          That is true. Unfortunately people may be comparing it to what is fresh on their minds, which is SM.

        • However.. i disagree!

          It totally lacked and sort of nuance the first games had. BW had a brilliant plot that even tied into the titles. It was about not everything is so Black and White. Dreams and ideals are different for everyone. There is no one right way, there are multiple perspectives.

          This is shown through the dynamic between N and the player.

          The player is put into a roll of a trainer who brings out the strength in pokemon and betters not only themself but also their pokemon. N only sees Pokemon being trapped and wants to free them.

          Why Team Plasma works is because they take a side then radicalize it. They steal pokemon, they make speeches without any actual debates, and they have motives that are unclear.

          But B2W2 turns Team Plasma into fully evil with no reason to be evil other than they are evil. Ghetsis just wants world domination and the player doesn’t take any roll. I feel like they were aware of this because Marlon questions if team Plasma is truely evil which doesnt work in the game where they just did a terrorist attack on a highly populated city.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Like literally every other game in the series, making it worse than BW but not bad overall.

            – Wraps up lose ends

            – Your rival has a relatable goal even if he’s a bit of a doof

            – Mostly well paced until the end

            – Sensible evil team, they want to use power for dominance rather than to… Destroy the world they live on? Commit misguided genocide?

          • -Wrapping up loose ewnds IS really nice. B2W2 arent bad games obviously, but its a huge disappointment after bW
            – Hugh sucks. I’ve talked about this before but it makes no sense for it to be his sisters purrloin he is after. He is also an edgelord but not the entertaining kind. He has basically no character development and bianca and Cheron are so much better
            – The end gets REALLY bad with pacing
            – I guess but it felt like they were trying to do Rocket again

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            The little sister is really young? Like I know our protags tend to be early tens but why would he let a little girl without any other Pokemon go out herself to get it?

          • You are missing my point. Why would they write it so that he has a sister who had a purrloin that got stolen then have him rescue it.

            -Purrloin is a super common pokemon anyways so it has little value, therefor no stakes if you want to be cynical about it
            – Why not make his sister older and be the rival
            – Why not remove the sister entirely and just make it Hugh’s pokemon?
            – This sister is seen like… once and doesnt even have a name or a unique sprite so why care about her

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Dude the first thing you get told about that Purrloin is that it’s from their late grandfather, meaning it has sentimental attachment. Especially for a little girl.

            Also for someone who loves BW you don’t seem to get Team Plasma’s point? Even common Pokémon aren’t disposable items lol, at least in universe. You ever had a cat or dog? They’re about as replaceable as a common Pokemon is in universe. That’s seemingly the common view in universe seeing as they actually bother to bury their Pokémon.

            Because it speaks more for one’s character if you’re willing to act for others, especially those who cannot help themselves. If Hugh just reduced his own Purrloin or had his sister be the older one for some uneccessary reason, it wouldn’t have as much impact on his character. He’s a caring person. Characterisation can exist outside of BW and Lillie you know?

          • But we never SEE that grandfather. Or the moment that she got the pokemon. So we have no connection to it as a player. A purrloin is just a purrloin to us, players who see them every single time we walk in the grass. It doesn’t click. We are told all of these connections but never see them so the character is never built up enough.

            Hugh is never shown to be compassionate though. He helps people but he always does it angry and full of rage. He seems more like an ass with anger issues than a caring person. A character that is constantly angry is unlikable.

          • Fedex

            Hmm no.
            I think Hugh helping his sister gives some development to his character. That he cares for his little sister. You know the big brother to the rescue. Without it he’d be like another Blue/Barry

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            If you can’t connect with people just because they were never part of your life, I’m sorry for you. But it’s not meant to be the player’s driving force at all. It’s Hugh’s. Look at his perspective rather than yours.

            By that logic, we shouldn’t feel bad for N or Lillie because we never see their sad upbringings, we just see the aftermath and interaction afterwards. The exact same as the Purrloin plot.

            That’s called being passionate. He feels emotion strongly, as shown by his love and anger.

          • The thing is though, when someone tells you that something sad happened to their family member, you feel bad for them and you sympathize. But in a game or a movie, you have to have a reason to sympathize. Its what makes characters into people. Because you can’t relate to fictional characters. You can relate to fictional people.

            When we hear that Hugh (who we dont even know anything about at this point because the game just started and he isnt in BW so we have no idea what kind of person this is) has a sister who had her purrloin taken, we don’t feel that sympathy because in this world, everyone gets their fucking pokemon stolen. You cant even go to school without someone taking your pokemon. So why should we as an audience care,

            The game fails at making us care about these people because their perspective is never properly shown. We never meet this sister and have an actual moment where we understand what it means to her. We are told that by Hugh.

            And hugh is literally ALWAYS ANGRY. He never has any moments where he is a friend to you or he talks to someone like a regular human being. He is always pissed about something. he sees you and anyone else around like allies to help him get his fucking pokemon back and not like people. It makes you ask why are you friends with this kid

      • Fedex

        Hahaha hmm we’ll have to see. I have high hopes for these games

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        The plot of BW2 wasn’t better than BW but it doesn’t mean it was bad

        • Ultron

          Agreed, it wasn’t that bad imo. The cool region and new order of it made of what it lacked anyway. Plus the new features and stuff like low level volcarona, mandibuzz, and braviary was great

          • Fedex

            Actually BW2 were more than not bad. They were v.good

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            One of my faves tbh, like 4th maybe?

          • Fedex

            My first even ahead of hoenn in terms of story is BW/BW2. I don’t class them as separate they’re like one big game.

            You can’t hate on Unova. The characters and depth was out of this world.
            Hmm should play them again soon I think! =)

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            I think Hoenn has one of the stories tbh :v

            At least we can both agree Unova had amazing plot XD

          • Fedex

            What was better than Unova?
            I guess Sinnoh was good.
            Not played SM yet so can’t comment on them.
            But yh gen 5 was just amazing:)

        • Fedex

          Agreed. And you know what it didn’t have to be better coz BW set the foundations and BW2 just picked off from where BW ended. Great games

        • It was just bland. it turned into a good vs evil plot instead of two equal perspectives battling

          • Ultron

            Well to be fair we did learn that ghetsis was straight evil and he was the main villain again

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Black and White literally came down to evil VS good too

            There were legit evil grunts

            The whole plot was orchestrated by Ghetsis who is evil

            The final battle is literally good VS evil instead of VS a champion

          • Sure but that was because it was a radicalization of the idea that Pokemon shouldn’t be captured and used which is what N felt. Ghetsis took advantage of N but it was still N’s story.

            The grunts ween’t all evil either. In B2W2 there are still Team Plasma members that wear the old uniform because they still believe that Pokemon shouldn’t be captured. You never battle them.

          • Fedex

            And that’s what makes it interesting. Old Plasma and then you have new plasma. The division and separation was interesting as ever.
            Then the shadow triad and Colress just added to the suspense!
            Also return of old characters like Cheren, Alder and Bianca.
            Iris being champion. All the changes made an interesting revisit of Unova

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            BW2 also posed the idea of people having to stay with evil teams because they have nowhere else to go and the idea of repenting (N, Plasma Grunts, etc)

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            There’s people that kicked Munna and others with pretty fishy dialogue

            There was evil plasma grunts

          • Sunny

            It’s scenes like those that make me wonder why there aren’t life sentences in Pokémon.

          • Fedex

            Haha ikr
            And Shelly punching the weather institute guy. That was brutal!

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            ORAS shelly is my favourite thing from Hoenn tbh

          • Fedex

            I liked Matt he was cool and kinda funny. Need 2 play OR and check the Magma admins out!

          • … I know there were evil ones. But you’ll notice that those Munna grunts were following Ghetsis and were frightened by Ghetsis. Not N.

            There were Plasma grunts that followed N and wanted pokemon to be happy truly, but there were many others that followed ghetsis and used it as a shield for evil actions

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            The game still comes down to good VS evil in the end tho? And the second game does tackle issues such as repentance and reliability in regards to evil teams

          • Fedex

            Plus there’s so much depth to the story regardless if its an evil vs good. Isn’t it always good vs evil?

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            At least for Pokemon, yes

          • Sunny

            The winners write history.

          • Yeah but thats not what its about. It only ends with fighting Ghetisis because he was using N. The whole game you talk to N about what he thinks and fights for. NPCs all talk about different perspectives. The brothers in the story who had Reshiram and Zekrom fought over their ideals, The game is called Black and White.

            Its not about Good vs Evil

          • Fedex

            I agree. BW were much more deeper and versatile in plot.

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Ghetsis is evil. You are good. The game is far deeper before that, but the game does just come down to good VS evil. N would not be involved at all if it wasn’t for Ghetsis’ evil.

            You can say it’s deep and all that because it is but it does just boil down to good VS evil in the end.

          • Fedex

            Yeah basically BW2 were still very good games story wise. I think them being sequels set 2 years later in enough.

          • … no. just.. no.

            Star Wars comes down to Luke vs the Emperor but he isn’t the villain. Not really. It’s vader. Vader is the one who is always there. Same with N and Ghetsis.

            Saying the plot is good vs evil because it ends with fighting an evil character is overly simplistic and robs the story of its depth. You are ignoring 99% of the story because of the ending. Thats ridiculous.

            B2W2’s plot is centered around good vs evil unlike BW which is centered around the multiple perspectives clashing. A purrloin is stolen, a city is attacked, a pokemon is used for power. None of this is in BW in the same way

            Wanna know why N wanted the legendary? Not for some ultimate power of evil, its because he wanted to shape Unova to his ideals.

          • Fedex

            I have to agree with what ur saying but I do disagree that BW2 weren’t good plot wise they were good just BW were better in terms of being more versatile and different

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            See the thing? Star Wars is still good VS evil, jedi VS sith. Luke VS Vader is a morally grey area in a tale of good VS evil, just as BW is. BW is a story of good VS evil in the end, because Ghetsis is the source of conflict, not N. N is barely autonomous, he spends the whole game as Ghetsis’ bitch and doesn’t really even has his own ideas or truths – everything given to him was from Ghetsis. N used the Dragon because Ghetsis wanted it for his evil plans.

          • Oh so because Ghetsis was feeding N these beliefs i guess all of that other stuff is just meaningless. Nevermind the fact that Zekrom and Reshiram’s backstories are entirely cewntered around opposing ideologies yet neither of them is the evil one. Forget the fact that in the second town of the game you see people reconsidering their beliefs. Forget all that.

            There is a villain so its good vs evil with no other depth and so BW is the same as b2W2

          • Ghost of Leaks Past

            Sit down kid.

            I said it is deep. I said it’s better than BW2. But in the end, BW still comes down to good VS evil. Did I say it was just barebones good and evil? No. Did I say it had no depth? No.

          • But its not a story about that! Having an evil villain that you fight doesn’t make the story about good vs evil. It’s not the destination, its the journey and the journey is filled with people’s perspectives. Not the villain you fight at the end.

            Maybe so but I don’t think they were bland. They still had depth, unpredictability to some extent and just because of the fact they were sequels that made them great. Never mind anything else. That alone is like 500 plus points (Or BW2 medals lol)

            Yeah the plot couldn’t be as good as its predecessor but does it really matter, the plot is still good in Pokemon standards and the great gameplay makes you forget the plot anyways. It didn’t surpass BW and character plot wise, but it surpassed BW in everything else.

    Good evening, i am still rocking Miitopia, and my first person almost reached level 50, the first hero i had to date. but here’s a strange fact, levels for relationships extend well beyond 50… i think my highest is at 76 (soulmates)

  • Sunny

    So am I jumping the gun or is an article going to be made to stream Pokenchi any time soon?

    • JJ Knight

      I think it starts in like 50 minutes?

      Thank you r1907 for what I assume is a link to a stream of Pokenchi.

      • r1907

        It is, sorry for not explaining!

        • Sunny

          Snow Problem. It was more than I asked for.

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Not all heroes wear capes

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So the new Lycanroc form seems to be on all fours. I imagine that’s the Pokemon we all thought was Midday in the June trailer. they seem to be similar in looks so it’s not like we could have known any better

  • Fedex

    I have super high hopes for USUM.
    Like story wise, post game and plenty of new forms. I feel GF will be going all out to keep us busy till gen 8 which may take it’s time to come out on the switch

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I just hope it has a different enough story that it’s worth buying. I really don’t feel like buying and playing through SM again in less than a year. I love Alola and I loved SM, but I want a relatively new story with the characters we’ve come to love lol

      • Fedex

        Ahhh don’t worry they’ll be much different. If they aren’t then..
        Me and you will jump on a mega mence and rain destruction with hyper beams and draco meteors!

  • UnburdenedLegume

    PhillyBeatzU will be live streaming the Pokenchi episode om his YT channel

    • Ghost of Leaks Past

      Will it even be a real stream tho 👀

      Also someone already posted where to watch it + Pj’s maybe streaming think?

  • Daedardus

    I’m expecting nothing and I will still likely be disappointed.

    • Sunny

      Just wondering if Dae can ban us…than who can ban Dae?

      • Daedardus

        I can ban myself.

        • Ghost of Leaks Past

          Don’t do it! You have so much to moderate for!

        • Sunny

          This does not seem like a good checks and balance system.

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          In case you don’t want to see yourself become the villain

          • EarthenWarrior

            I don’t need any other villains on my territory

  • Ultron

    How long is pokenchi?

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      The last one was half an hour iirc

  • Fedex

    After ORAS I actually have high hopes for the eventual Sinnoh remakes.
    Can you imagine an “Arceus episode”?
    That would be amaaazing!

    • Sunny

      Cyrus escapes from the Distortion World riding on the back of an Arceus while you are on the shoulders of Cynthia for the battle of the ages.

      • Fedex

        Hell yeah! Bring it on!

  • Ghost of Leaks Past

    New article!
