    Where the fug is Corocoro that’s a better question
    because other than that September is just gonna be blah until October where so many games are releasing

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Late Tuesday or wednesday if i have to guess

      • Dazzling Dusk

        Here’s hoping, as much as I’d like it now, it’d be cool to have it on my birthday!

    • Patience – It practically never leaks before the 10th of the month. We’ll probably get CoroCoro leaks this Tuesday or Wednesday!

    • Phantom Govnah

      why couldnt you make this comment + your first lol

  • UnburdenedLegume

    We need to talk about how this thing got a massive buff, which basically made its counterpart powerless in a head-to-head battle. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8afcea350e836498ccdf84346b2c7cac89b03b0b510133d14430172243818ad8.png

    • Chaos

      Groudon is the most epic cover legendary to date.

      Primal-Groudon had the single greatest impact on any metagame I have ever seen.

      Primal-Groudon is boss. Screw Kyogre.

      • Daedardus

        M-Rayquaza would kick a lot more ass if he ever was on the cover for the supposed DeltaEmerald. It was also so powerful that they had to create an all new metagame, since he was too OP too fit in with the OP Pokémon.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          wtf is DeltaEmerald

          • Chaos

            What ORAS should have been.

          • It was a license that leaked during the time ORAS was still popular. Well, “leaked”

      • Golden_Flygon

        I agree. It’s about time Godzilla is as broken as the whale once was in the earlier gens.

      • I think Dialga holds that spot for me

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    What no new merch??? What it is this crap? hahaha

    • There actually was, but it’s a lot of work to find and consolidate it all, so i was seeing how people would react if I didn’t put it in. A lot of people on our socials are disappointed at the lack of merch as well – so it’ll be included again in the WWUs starting next week! 🙂

      • Daedardus

        You’re doing Arceus’ work here, so just keep it up!

      • Sunny

        I had the same initial response as TheUltraMonster6893, but with exclamation points. Although I understand that it may be too much work. Just keep on posting enjoyable articles in a timely manner.
        Ozymandis gets a 4.5 out of 5 Daes.

        • Daedardus

          But aren’t there seven daes in a week?

          • Sunny

            The legendary 7 out of 5 Daes rating is reserved for something that is so praiseworthy that it can only occur once every Daecentury.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Nice hahaha no problem at all. Sometimes that kind of stuff is more difficult to compile rather than general info. Your do what’s best XP

  • Daedardus
    • Ultron

      A Dance with Dragons ayyyyy

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Swear Mimikyu and Silvally are getting way too much love with this new upcoming merchandise line. Exclusive Z-moves are inevitable https://twitter.com/Pokeshopper/status/906072111478919172

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Oh they’ll definitely get new Z moves. I’m actually surprised Silvally didn’t get a Z move in SM

      • Ultron

        It would upstage all the damn discs they had to make for it

        • EarthenWarrior

          Sivallium Z
          RKS Overload!
          Mult-Attack
          “Sivally overloads its cells with its Memories and unleashes a powerful blast that always deals super-effective damage”

          • Ultron

            Me gusta

        • All of the pointless discs that they could’ve just used Plates instead

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Eh I guess that’s true…..that said I wonder what the Z move it might get would be typed…..I could see them gibing it a Z move that works for any move. Basically a type-less Z move until you choose the move it’s based off of

  • EarthenWarrior

    Why did a Tangrowth get a crit on my Slurpuff…
    Was gonna win and just like that just ALWAYS BAD LUCK

  • Golden_Flygon

    I have a question: does Rock Polish work well with Bisharp if it’s Adamant and has full evs in speed and attack?

  • My experience in Season 6 of Overwatch

    – People throwing the game
    – People leaving after losing the first point
    – Terrible team comps
    – People in voice chat ignoring the others
    – Being called toxic for pointing out that you don’t need 4 offense heros on defense
    – triple tank offense

    Great

    • Daedardus

      You described online gaming in general.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Thats basically every MMO or other game with online multiplayer

    • I play on console for a reason

  • Butter Geek

    Looking for a new name for my fakemon Sweetandy. It’s a first stage of my candy shaped mammal 3 stage line (pure fairy). I thought about Offsweet (Offspring and Sweet) Cuz It’s a first stage

    • Dazzling Dusk

      Sucreet (sucrose and sweet)

  • EarthenWarrior

    Body…..frozen……had to skim the pool……..must’ve been 65 degrees
    So….what are you fart-lickers doing

    • Ultron

      Probably about to play some splatoon. Anyone down?

      • I’m laying Splatoon also! :0

        • EarthenWarrior

          I haven’t played in weeks…

          • Ultron

            Let’s all play

        • Ultron

          Nice! Bout to get on. I just heard of a dragonite spawn not too far from me in pogo so I went to get it xD

  • The spawning grounds is such a better map than the one with the room in it

  • Looks like Kamen Rider Build is turning out to be pretty good so far. I need to watch it someday

  • Shady

    • EarthenWarrior

      some errors
      Toxapex isn’t pecks its apex as in top of the food chain
      Shiinotic not from narcotic but hypnotic
      Type: Null, the lack of the data wasn’t the reason for the name but as a given name for a failed Type: Full beast killer which was its original goal
      Solgaleo there is common assosiaion towards Galileo

  • Uhhgggg… I’m in such a terrible mood… the current salmon run weapons are terrible too. How does anyone use the blaster?

  • Desu-er Seraph

    So, long story short absolutely nothing happened this week Pokemon related?

  • Ultron

    IGN comment sections are so toxic. Bout to delete my account there.

    • That kinda goes for almost all community websites. Especially (From what I’ve seen) Tumblr

      • Ultron

        Well good thing I avoid tumblr

      • Tumblr is like Reddit. It’s fine as long as you stay away from toxicity

    • Desu-er Seraph

      Too much
      wAAAAAAAAAAAAATterrrrrr

      • sOnIc WaS nEvEr GoOd

      • Ultron

        Yeah their staff isn’t the greatest either

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      That’s so true, they’re somehow worse than YT comment sections

      • Ultron

        Everyone is so rude

        • 4chan’s kinda toxic too

          • Desu-er Seraph

            True but they have leaks which makes them more useful than IGN

          • True

          • Ultron

            So I’ve heard

          • Kinda?

          • They have their moments of kindness. Like when they helped this young YouTuber reach a few thousand subs

          • EarthenWarrior

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Nobody can take any single opinion

  • TheNintendoChip

    Haven’t been able to come on lately, super busy with university starting again 🙁 I’ve had about a week off school b/c of Irma, so I had a lot of time to get a map done! This is Elos Ruins, south of Elos Village, where you meet the 5th protagonist! The perspective is a little weird, but I did the best I could.
    http://i.imgur.com/E633Aw1.png

    • Desu-er Seraph

      YOOOOOOOOOOOoo

    • These keep getting better and better

      • TheNintendoChip

        Thank you! This one took a couple hours. First because it’s a huge map, second because I went through a couple draft versions first.

    • Ultron

      Super cool. Makes me miss the old graphics 😉

    • Golden_Flygon

      0_0

  • Hey anyone want to Showdown rn?

  • EarthenWarrior
    • EarthenWarrior

      well that barely got my pulse up

  • EarthenWarrior

    Earthen bored, i feel like creating a fakemon, but i’m so running out of good ideas
    the last one that got positive reviews was Sylkommand Bug/Psychic Puppeteer

    I kinda feel like ravenous consuming flytrap but done to death, or something ghostly

  • Goodnight folks have good nights/Mornings and I’ll be back here with ya tomorrow

  • InfinityD4

    Well I’m pissed I can’t Buy the Steelbook because A. I forgot I’m not charged until november and waited this long and it’s sold out. and B. I know Amazon Canada has Stock But I can’t Buy from their because Video games Can’t Be Shipped internationally and C. It’s Amazon Exclusive and D. IF IT DON’T GET IT I NEED TO GET RID OF THE SM STEELBOOK I ALREADY HAVE OR ELSE IT WILL PASSIVELY DRIVE ME INSANE.

    • InfinityD4

      to Explain, My Birthday is the 10th, and I got some cash out of it. this prompted me to try and buy it since I now had enough to purchase it. I have also Tried Amazon Japan Because I heard they do International Shipping of Games now. no dice. Looking like the Best option is to buy the seperate versions and see if someone sells just the Case on Ebay or something.

      • InfinityD4

        placed the order because I could always cancel it if the steelbook somehow comes magically back in stock before they ship it. PANIC ATTACK OVER. thank you for reading this late night while nobody’s around freak-out.

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • zess

      I hope they release it here in America as well.

      • Same but they probably won’t

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Eh, they released Tapu Koko so anything can happen.

          Maybe only Europe gets it 😛

  • EarthenWarrior

    That new Rick and Morty was just….it was deep

    • Desu-er Seraph

      Wait it aired?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Yes… Dude watch it here while you still can..
        Just….just you gotta see it
        https://youtu.be/YoqVBZoVWkY

        • Desu-er Seraph

          I’m in school son of a dildick

          • EarthenWarrior

            Sounds like you need some Simple Ricks

    • When that song came on…

      OH DAMN

  • Prashanth Raghuram

    Guys any news on corocoro… Can’t wait. Please let it not have leaked with nothing significant.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Well the cover was posted on Amazon, but nothing really. Honestly I think if we’re gonna get anything the real show will be from a trailer not the magazine

      • Prashanth Raghuram

        Corocoro has exclusively revealed info before during xy days, which would be followed by an official trailer… But the trend faded with S/M and disappeared with USUM… Honestly I don’t even know wth their marketing strategy is now

        • GameFreak: “What’s a marketing?”

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I mean….To be fair it’s not GF that’s in charge of marketing hahaha

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          This time around is an odd ball, but I think their main focus now is just trailers with few CoroCoro exclusives. They don’t need CoroCoro now that they’re launching worldwide on the same date. It makes less sense to focus on a magazine that most of the world would never see normally

    • Probably tonight or tomorrow night. It will for sure be this week

  • So if a direct is happening this week we will probably know in either two hours or tomorrow morning

    • Phantom Govnah

      Yea we need release date for Skyrim and Xenoblade

      • I’m actually expecting USUM info. I feel like it’s a good time.

        Team Cherry will almost definitely have Hollowknight Switch news

        Zelda DLC trailer

        Stardew Valley release date?

        Some surprise at the end (ANINAL CROSSING PLEASE)

        • Phantom Govnah

          More of a e3 for AC

          • Ultron

            Hopefully not that far away. Maybe another AC direct?

  • Ultron

    It’s my birthday wooo

    • Desu-er Seraph

      Happy birthday boi!

      • Ultron

        Ty bb

        • Desu-er Seraph

          *Celebratory rapid fire dabbing*

          • Ultron

            22 dabs for 22 years

          • Desu-er Seraph

            22 straight minutes, 22 dabs a minute

          • Dab on the haters

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Happy birth wooo

      • Ultron

        Thanks kuppo!

    • Butter Geek

      Happy Bday!

      • Ultron

        Thanks! :))))))

        • Butter Geek

          You made the emoji of me smiling

    • BIRTH

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Happy birthday yo!!!!!

    • Happy Birthday, man.

    • Sunny

      Hope your birthday is a sunny one.

  • Butter Geek
    • The lollipop…

      Why

      • Butter Geek

        Why not is the better question

        • No it really isn’t

          • Butter Geek

            It just was an idea I liked. The line are levitating mammals that look like diffrent kind of candy. What’s wrong with that?

          • It’s supposed to be a mammal? What mammal looks like that?

          • Phantom Govnah

            Wait Lolipops arent Mammals?

          • Butter Geek

            None. It Works like a mammal, but isn’t based on existing ones.

          • Then it’s just a lollipop with a face. At least Vanilite was cute and had more to it than just “it’s ice cream”

          • Butter Geek

            It has fur.

          • A hairy lollipop.

            Great

          • Butter Geek

            It producent milk, It has fur, its a mammal! That’s more than just a lolipop

          • But why. What about lollipops make you think of mammals?

            Why not a goat with a candy theme. Maybe the horns could be lollipops or candy canes. Ground/Fairy type maybe?

          • Butter Geek

            Okay, I just wanted to make a Lolipop with a face, but I tried and make it creative. Just like GF with Klefki, Comfey and the Vanniluxe line.

          • Well I’m saying it didn’t work at all

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Lordipop shouldn’t have hair tbh…

      • Butter Geek

        Its a mammal that Looks like a lolipop (the stick is a sticking out bone)

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Ugh, that’s freaky and it doesn’t look like a mammal

    • Desu-er Seraph

      Wtf is a canedy
      That sounds like a knock off brand

      • Butter Geek

        Candy Cane (that name is pretty lazy I know)

        • Desu-er Seraph

          Please give this thing knock off cause of my joke

          • Butter Geek

            I will

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      But I like Seekfowl, and you should spice canedy a bit, looks bland

  • Phantom Govnah

    only a few more minutes till suppose direct announcement or maybe even tmmr who knows


  • Oh god, I’m not sure which one I like more, Shiny Ray or Mind Conductor

    • Phantom Govnah

      Spongebob OP is great too

      • Oh yes

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        A R E Y A R E A D Y K I D S

  • Butter Geek
  • Phantom Govnah
    • Butter Geek

      YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

      • Butter Geek

        im sorry

    • Cool, when is it? I’m at school rn and the post won’t load, so that’s why I’m asking

      • Phantom Govnah

        3pm pt, or 6pm EST

        • Wait, you mean it’s today?

          • Butter Geek

            On 13th

          • Oh

          • Butter Geek

            You got your hopes up?

          • No, I just thought it was today

      • 3PM PT

    • YES AND ITS AFTER SCHOOL!!!!!!

      • Butter Geek

        Midnight before school here…
        Who needs sleep anyway

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Hope they’ll reveal the release date of Xeno 2

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Uh and it’s 45 minutes long and it’ll contain information about Odyssey

        • Yaaaaaassss

        • Phantom Govnah

          so bascially 40 minutes odyssey and 5 minutes rest

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            I’m good with that 😛

          • I think they will talk about peach and bowser’s hats

          • Phantom Govnah

            and Luigi not being there

        • What I want is some info for USUM. Is it focused on any specific console?

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            It’s focused on 3ds and Switch

          • Butter Geek

            That COULD mean USUM… but it probably won’t

          • Phantom Govnah

            this is basically a direct for the rest of the year, so not having USUM is bad

          • Butter Geek

            Maybe there could be a seperate Pokemon Direct

          • Phantom Govnah

            It could be both tho

          • If it were focused on mobile too, I would’ve hoped for info on when Nephenee and Black Knight are coming to Heroes and when AC Mobile is coming out, but I guess not.

          • Phantom Govnah

            no both

          • Butter Geek

            *Wii U crying in the corner*

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Fam, the Wii U ceased production a long time ago

          • R.I.P.

          • Butter Geek

            *Wii U crying in the corner even more*

          • The Wii U is dead. It has been dead since before the Switch

        • Butter Geek

          Can we already bet on no USUM news?

  • Phantom Govnah

    New Article

  • I want playable Peach in Odyssey
    I want playable Luigi in Odyssey

    I WANT PLAYABLE WALUIGI IN ODYSSEY

    • Butter Geek

      Maybe post game
