  • Deerlia

    Wow, nice wrap-up… Shame about the Wii Games, but… Life moves on, we did live through the Wifi connection shutdown.

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    Those badges are sleek

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Way past spools

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Nani?!

  • Alaskya 1Q

    Those badges 😍

  • Alaskya 1Q
    • Seraph Has Fury

      Well nobody else is commenting so I’m livening this place up
      Plus, it makes me feel a little less lonely seeing comments even if they’re my own
      makes me feel like someone wants to talk to me… except I don’t even want to talk to me

    • EarthenWarrior

      My Father’s favorite skit

  • EarthenWarrior

    Blarhh so ends the slowness of September
    Now we enter October, a shift from summer to fall
    And the start of decent games to release, Mario and Luigi, South Park The Fractured But Whole and the most important Mario Odyssey
    And the most important thing is my Birthday is in 2 weeks (which I’ll go to the city for barbecue and a trip to the Superstore)
    And Corocoro is coming within two weeks so that’s something to look forward to

    • Alaskya 1Q

      Summer ended a long time ago boi

      • EarthenWarrior

        Not that long maybe like a week into fall

    • Seraph Has Fury
    • Monkeyfuzz

      Mario Odyssey is fun to play, at least the small amount I did was.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Really… slow? It went super fast for me, just like the rest of the year

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Do we know the UK Marshadow distribution yet? I hope it’s by code and easy to get.
    The badges look cool and I want that Hydreigon.

    • Alaskya 1Q

      Hope it’s announced soon if it hasn’t been already, Marshmallow is the only Pokémon left that I need for my Live Dex (excluding forms)

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I just love it and need it. I wonder if the codes will also work for USUM if they are indeed codes. I would like if it appeared in the Battle Royale Dome in a back room or something, but then that’s attributing a mini story to it which doesn’t happen anymore.

  • Alaskya 1Q

    Ngl, if they do the Sinnoh badges I’d have to get one and pin it on my school blazer, I’m a sucker for badges

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I never was, but the ones from the image made me one

  • MenacingCascoon

    Pretty nice decent week in pokemon.
    I definitely want those badges
    The article thumbnail is more reason why Solgaleo is better than Lunala. Can’t cuddle with a Moon Bat God

  • ShinyXatu

    I NEED a giant Ditto plush like that. The Magnemite is really cute too!

  • Shady

    Y they didn’t show the sleeping Shiinotic in the anime. http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1506882195970.jpg

    • Oh that’s cool

    • It’s for reference. In case animators need it in a particular way it’s there so they know what to do

  • Alaskya 1Q

    Kinda unrelated to the article, but is something I thought of and keep forgetting to ask you guys

    Do you think that since the QR code won’t expire, Magearna will be obtainable with the same code? Maybe even in its original colour form? I know most of you won’t care about the non shiny recolour but like. I’m a collector. Gimme.

    • Seraph Has Fury

      Noip

    • Alaskya 1Q

      *For USUM

    • I’d collect it too

  • ShinyXatu

    So tomorrow is the start of the Sinnoh Hat Pikachu right? I’m kinda excited to pick one up in Sun. Then next week I have to head out to GameStop for Marshadow (and maybe Target for Charizard too). Everything is happening in October!

    • Deerlia

      Even my Birthdeer, in a week~

      • ShinyXatu

        That’s so exciting! My birthday is in March and I’ll be turning an unbelievable 19.

        • Deerlia

          Woo, my Birthdeer is on the 8th of October and i will be 25~

          • Oh cool thats my brother 2 year anniversary, but happy early birthday 😀

    • MenacingCascoon

      Sinnoh Hat is the best one. Volt Tackle is a necessity.
      It sucks that NA can’t get all but Japan can. So unfair. Anyway I would like marshadow too, then I will have the whole dex

      • Hoenn hat is my fav (has green), it has Volt Tackle too tho

        • Alaskya 1Q

          Hoenn doesn’t have Volt Tackle, but can learn it through the tutor in Konikoni

          • It doesn’t?

          • Alaskya 1Q

            It’s based on its moveset at the start of the series, Pika got volt Tackle decently late into Hoenn

          • F*ck. Oh and why on Earth did Ash take Volt Tackle off for Electro Ball?! Electro Ball sucks

          • Alaskya 1Q

            Gen V promotion

          • I think it was an Aweful call at least have it know 5 moves. If Snorlax and Dragonite can do it so can Pikachu

    • It is?! F*ck I need to get on tonight before tomorrow

    • … I’m going to miss the only Pikachu hat I wanted

      • Then find a place with wifi and get at it

        • I didn’t bring Moon

          • Oh… Well wait if I get one then delete the file it was on (with it snuggly in the bank) can I get another? Cause I could get 2 then Trade it to you when you get back

          • I think you can

          • Ok I’ll get you one then

      • Alaskya 1Q

        I’ll get a spare and trade to you?

  • Shady

    Those badges…… Hoenn confirmed

    • Alaskya 1Q
      • Shady

        This bugs me

        • Alaskya 1Q

          Your meme is old

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Maybe that’s the joke or something like that

          • Alaskya 1Q

            It’s a tired overused meme that needs to be allowed to enjoy its retirement

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            “Humour is subjective”

          • Alaskya 1Q

            2017 meme VS 2014 meme which died when Hoenn was actually confirmed

            Calm your salt

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Stop saying that I’m salty ffs

          • Shady

            It’s not a meme

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Sorry but this says otherwise

            http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/hoenn-confirmed

          • Shady

            Y every thing I say become an issue? …..it’s just random talk….u should aware I have different culture.

          • Alaskya 1Q

            Everyone here gers criticism, you’re not specially targeted or anything

            And when you go onto a site that’s primarily one culture, you’re going to get cultural class. Hell, the person you’re speaking to (Kuppo) isn’t part of the predominant culture (USA)

  • Well its official I’m an a$$hole

    Playing Pokémon Go at the Hospital https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b277f25bbc701d3e8fbce6843d37464a795221c164e59a534a0c08abfc7da42e.png

    Btw I didn’t catch the Raticate

    • Monkeyfuzz

      They need to up their hygiene standards, they’ve got a Raticate problem.

      • Funny thing other than an Eevee all of them were Rattatta

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Any Chansey around? Lol

  • I always get so tempted to buy the official badge sets, but they’re so expensive hnnngggggggasdfghkl

  • Shady
    • EarthenWarrior

      i absolutely adore these
      especially how Toucannon’s beak turns yellow when its firepower is low and the process of Oranguru’s fan construction

      absolutely fascinating

      • Shady

        Look at the smoke that evaporate from its nose …”Oranguru’s fan construction” is ideal that’s prove how much GF concepts is.

        • EarthenWarrior

          It’s a pokebiologist’s dream

    • ShinyXatu

      interesting to think that they’re probably working on concept art for Generation 8 as we speak…

      • Shady

        They always do that ….I feel sorry for us

    • Ultron

      Toucannon <3 <3 <3

    • Monkeyfuzz

      This is why they should release concept art books.

  • Govnah
    • Monkeyfuzz

      What I played of the Desert level was fun and looked great. There is a wall mechanic that’s pretty cool, I think a Zelda game had something similar. It was my first time using Joycons so I didn’t end up getting much done.

  • EarthenWarrior

    https://pokebiology.wordpress.com/
    remind me to read this in its entirety

  • EarthenWarrior
    • Monkeyfuzz

      I hope they haven’t abandoned new Fossil Pokemon.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I hope not, Fossils are my favorite

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I kind of want them to change up the part Rock Typing, but then I guess that’s their major constant as a part of the de-fossilisation.

          • EarthenWarrior

            there are many theories behind this
            that the rock typing is a result of fossilization process but two pokemon throw a kink into the theory

            mainly Cranidos and Tirtouga
            Cranidos being a pure rock type
            and Tirtouga being primarily Water/Rock which is odd because all fossils are primarily rock

            this raises the idea that these pokemon were naturally Rock types in their era

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yeah I mean some probably would be, but I doubt all would’ve been. Archeops for example I feel wouldn’t had the typing and perhaps instead been part Dragon (going by some of its’ moves). The more obvious one would perhaps be Armaldo which likely could’ve been Water/Bug. Though it’s interesting that if this were the case, it is their Primary typing being replaced. Perhaps a new breakthrough could restore some fossils to their true original state of living.

          • Shady

            Mamoswine should be fossil too.

          • EarthenWarrior

            ehhhhhh the ancient power schpeal is fossil enough

          • Monkeyfuzz

            No, it is literally an evolution that brings forth its ancestral DNA, caused by it learning Ancient Power.

          • That’s a debatable statement

            Only cause even though Mammoths have gone extinct in this world over in the Pokemon World the ancestors lived on

            I believe the Mamoswine we have is a evolved version of the original Mamoswine as the original went extinct while they adapted and changed a bit to survive in the new World, the same can be argued for Relicanth

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Actually Relicanth is stated to be unchanged since ancient times.

          • Hmmm I still wonder what made it never change?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Probably it never needed to, if the conditions in which it lived didn’t change or it was able to cope as it was without needing to adapt then I guess it just didn’t. Evolution is largely driven by survival, I guess it was doing just fine as it was.

          • It’s amazing though how hasn’t it survived since the first or second great extinctions?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Probably lives so deep in the sea it’s unaffected by surface changes.

          • EarthenWarrior

            coelacanths never really needed to evolve

          • Sunny

            Well obviously that is because there was no Infernapes swimming in the sea to prey upon the Relicanths and drive its evolutionary path.

      • Yeah cause they still have tons of creatures they haven’t even scratched at yet from the past

        • EarthenWarrior

          like a tiny Rock/Ice Mammoth thingy and its Rock/Fire predator Pyraptors

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I have thought of so many I’d like. There are so many extinct creatures that they could use. Actually they could use them in non-fossils too as long as the concept matches up.

      • Shady

        I miss Fossils in gen7

        • I did too. They kind of give a special touch to the entire game and give an option that is interesting to teams

    • Shady

      T-Rex and the other birds r my favorite

  • Ok so I need someone’s opinion

    Should I have my Kabuki Pokémon be a Legendary or be just a rare Pokémon?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I’d say rare, depends how many legends you have, what its’ lore would be as a legendary, whether you have anything else you’d like to make a legendary more.

      • I planned 4 Legendaries (not including the trio like the dogs)

        And it’s lore would be more a rare Entity that had become a Legend for saving a particular area from destruction in the past, but the 4th Legendary can be anything really as my others are A Pokémon based on Gaia that is the Main Legend- Ground type, but has two forms which make it Ground/Fire or Ground/Ice, An evil Demon which plays as the main villainous Pokemon- Dark/Poison, and a Leviathan that resides deep in an ocean cave, but has no role till post game- So far its just a Water type

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Maybe make it like a Mythical? Like Magearna?

          • Maybe that actually sounds better for something like it (if I make the game though it will exist, but only cause making a mystery gift thing would be a lot of effort that wouldn’t help anything)

            And one quick thing should for anything I think should be trade evolution, should I make a special item that will simulate Trade evolution (like a link cable)

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Mythical in every sense except being event only yeah. You could make an item, but that’d pretty much be like a stone. Unless you are bringing back older Pokemon you could leave trade evolution out which would likely be easier.

          • Oh that makes sense to just make it stone like cause it’s having a Unova like style where old Pokémon are added in the post game

    • EarthenWarrior

      question is it masculine of feminine

      • More Masculine

        It was going to be Ghost/Flying or Ghost/Psychic

        • EarthenWarrior

          Hmmmmmmmm i’d go with psychic, it has a eerie singing voice that distorts reality around it

  • Sunny

    Ok so I need someone’s opinion

    Should I challenge the E4 with my team as it is?

    Typhlosion
    Wigglytuff
    Heracross
    Lanturn
    Jynx
    Donphan

    All are level 42. Thus, I am worried if I am a little underleveled and that I may need to grind at Victory Road or buy a lot of potions and revives when I challenge them.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Probably grind to around 45 if you’re worried.

    • I’d agree with Monkeyfuzz cause 45 sounds like a safer level to challenge with

    • EarthenWarrior

      it really depends what’s packing what
      you need to combat Will’s Psychic and Flying types
      Koga share a fire weakness
      Buno flying and water
      Karen is a mixed bag
      and Lance you need Rock and Ice

      • Shady

        Psychic to deal with both Koga and Brouno team

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Any y’all here?

  • Seraph Has Fury

    will be setting up a tournament once USUM comes out

    • Oh cool I may not enter due to me not planning anything

    • ShinyXatu

      Sounds good, I may actually enter this time.

      • Seraph Has Fury

        :3

  • ShinyXatu

    I know these Joy-Con are going to drive me insane one day. Come ON Nintendo, is this really necessary?

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2c03b6efe70545a86af325588e59370f2a9cc5308f8b4499a614f3287c4527f2.png

  • Ok, why is it that Yu has so much more personality in Persona 4 The Animation than in the game?

    • Auragar

      Because the animation is the animation? It isn’t supposed to be a self insert.

      • I guess, I mean, Yu isn’t supposed to be the avatar in the anime. But still, it’s kinda startling

        • Auragar

          *shrug* It is what it is.

  • Star I might not get to do it in time cause I left my DS at my mom’s and might not get home on time to beat the clock

    If I’m not able to I’m really sorry my friend :/

  • ShinyXatu

    I’ve been doing homework for almost the entire weekend and I’m finally done (for now). Note to self for the future: please don’t procrastinate THIS much. Now I’m almost braindead.

    • MenacingCascoon

      How’s college going for you, Dexbuddy ol pal?

  • Sunny

    Nearly done grinding for the elite 4. The question that I am confronted with is…

    Do I fight the E4

    or

    Do I watch the Rick and Misty Season Finale

    Before going to sleep?

    • Butter Geek

      The finale is underwhelming

  • Shady

  • Deerlia

  • As impressed I am with Kalos in emulating Paris I’m also kind of sad they didn’t incorporate some more religious elements of the city like Notre Dame because that could be such a beautiful location. Just change it from Christianity to some kind of Xerneas/Yveltal thing

    • Also yes I was just at Notre Dame

      • Deerlia

        Was it truly amazing? I would love to see it some day, but today isn’t that day sadly.

        • It really was! I’m very much not a religious person but it is such an amazing sight. Such an anchivement of architecture too

          • Deerlia

            I personally want to go for inspiration as being an artist myself, to study the advanced artwork and architecture techniques they must’ve used to make everything so fantastic and pretty there~

          • I’m regretting not bringing a sketchbook but we are all over the place so I wouldn’t have time to draw anyways. The city is beautiful

    • Deerlia

      I don’t think Nintendo wants legal trouble regarding certain landmarks. It’s an interesting artistic idea, but…

      • But they literally had a cathedral in Hearthome lol

        • Deerlia

          And in black and white/2, don’t forget that… The problem with notre dame is it’s specific, and if anyone picks it up as the focus of a church at any point, religious people will cry foul… There’s a reason it’s not featured, they could wind up in big trouble, kinda a big risk when you get specific, in some places pokemon is already considered “demonic” as is…

          • Ehhhh I don’t think they would care all that much. If Disney can do it then Pokémon can do it with a way looser connection. I don’t think those evangelicals calling Pokémon demonic have really done much to harm the series

          • Deerlia

            Normally i’d agree, but in certain places, the churches have a lot of power and if you make yourself a target, and they don’t like it, they will hunt you down like you were the devil, i’ve seen it happen a lot, and it’s quite sad. I saw lots of stuff even in the US where the churches act like the mafia, or some weird equivalent of it, it’s not pretty…

          • Also where was it in B2W2?

          • Deerlia

            Driftveil as a church in 1, in 2, it was the Plasma Sages’ Sanctuary.

          • Shady

            Yeah these called Humanzzz

    • Shady

      This’s should Gothic architecture right?…….that bring me back to hunchback of notre dame…..wat I can say I love Victor Hugo

  • Cinnamon Squirrel

    I’m in first period (math class) and I have a giant headache. Still, here I am! (Ta-da!)

    So, lately I’ve been working on a story. A Pokemon one, specifically, and have just finished the second Ark (Heart Gold, Soul Silver, & Shattered Crystal Ark). The two current arks (Fire Red, Leaf Green, Aqua Blue, & Thundering Yellow Ark is the other one) are basically the rise and fall story of a trainer from the Sevi Islands who travels through Kanto ( with the story of yellow, along with a couple things from the anime), conquers the Indigo league, but goes to Johto in the second ark to stop Team Rocket, who is under new management after he stops Giovanni in the first ark. He leaves behind all of his Pokemon and starts new, saying that he’s going to battle the gyms when he’s actually going to stop Team Rocket, who is officially a terrorist group (they blow up Silph Co. during this Ark). They’re specifically targeting him, so his family can’t know that he’s going. To accompany him in Johto is Crystal (shes goes by the name Kris), who ends up leaving for Kalos at the end of the Ark to pursue a modelling deal. Basically, the trainer (named Gideon) becomes so obsessed with stopping Team Rocket that he looses the value of why he became a trainer, and only realizes it in the climax, when he battles Ho-Oh and fails to capture it, essentially having a breakdown and Ho-Oh flying away. His journey through Johto by that point is done now, and he ends up going up Mt. Silver at the end, only to see Mew, along with a Spirit of himself from the first Ark. He explains that Mew took him out when he crossed the border into Johto, and how Gideon needs to get back to the roots of why he became a trainer in the first place. He tells him to leave the land of the Indigo League, leave the land that is plagued by Team Rocket (now just rogue members). They have a battle (it’s the Red battle from the end of the Johto games), and Gideon realizes what he meant by getting back to his roots as a trainer. He wins with his Johto Pokemon, and decides that he should go to Hoenn after seeing an ad (his dad, a gym leader, lives there). on TV.

    So, I’m at the end of the second ark, now I need some help for the third Ark (Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, & Delta Emerald Ark). The biggest Question is “what should I do about Mega Evolution?” since I’m going in chronological order (Black and White is also gonna run together with a new main character named Hilbert with the Third Ark to set up Black 2 and White 2 for Gideon later). I’m thinking that at the end of the Delta episode, his Key Stone should shatter from an overload with Raquazza. I’m not sure though, I’m definitely trying to keep up continuity. Gideon won’t bring a Key Stone into Sinnoh if they aren’t given one in the main story. If nothing new with Megas happens, and it’s like in Sun/Moon, then I’ll probably just skip it. Also, he’s always ended up having all of the starters. Should I do that this time? Or should it definitely just be one?

    I’m not sure when I’ll release the first Ark, but it’ll be on my Fanfiction.net page. So, I’ll probably just make an announcement on here when I decide to release it.

    Also, suggestions story-wise are always helpful. Thanks in advance!

      Shattering the Keystone makes sense, he can always get a new one if he travels to Kalos, perhaps having to retrain at the Tower of Mastery. Much as I like all of the starters in Hoenn, it may be good to let other Pokemon from the region shine. Pick one that best suits the character.
      Sounds like an interesting story 🙂

    Thoughts about the season finale? (R&M) I think it was underwhelming, but it was good

    • NO SPOILERS

    • Sunny

      Well I think that Rick and Morty are guaranteed future seasons so they don’t really need to be concerned with going out with a bang each season and are satisfied with continuing the narrative how they like. I liked it for the change in dynamics that was implemented. Not going to say anything further.

  • Fedex

    So watched Azkaban yesterday and I can see why it’s so well critically acclaimed! ✔

    – I do love the more mature and darker theme
    – The plot was very good and pacing was great
    – Honestly you connect with harry and his past in these films especially his parents thanks to the marauder group Lupin and Sirius in particular!
    – The dementors scared the s h i t out of me and added to the darker theme
    – Also Patronuses was really cool
    – Plot was very interesting with plenty of references to the past, loved the Snape scene when he catches Sirius and co.
    – Overall? Uh honestly imo from the first 3 films, it maybe the best but chambers is very close.

    Next up is Goblet of Fire where s h i t gets real.

    • That long take of Harry and Ron’s dad tho

      • Fedex

        You mean when he was warning harry about sirius?

        • Yeah. It’s all one take and it’s so gooood.

    • Fedex

      Also well done Harry for f u c k i n g up aunt marge.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Love PoA, the Marauders Map was a bit underutilised in comparison to the book but I guess they have to cut stuff somewhere. Also it lacked Crookshanks stuff that was quite important with the Whomping Willow. The worst part of Goblet is the guys hair.

    • Daedardus

      It’s the best movie of all eight, the next three are the weakest of them all.

    • Alaskya 1Q

      I stopped playing Minecraft because I kept dying and losing my stuff

      • I only stopped because I was playing other games and I didn’t like many of the updates. That game is still really important to me because it’s what got me into game development and eventually game criticism and art

      If I had a penny errytime this happened to me :Y

    Soaring around Hoenn I realise why ORAS was marked down in that review. You see it is an island surrounded by water, big water, ocean water.

      Next thing you know Trump is going to tweet about Hoenn’s poor leadership and laziness.

    Am I the only one that finds it sick that in USA anyone can buy a gun and shoot 250 people?

    • Oh you’re not. I hate to politicize any tragedy like this so soon when it happens but there has to be more limits on this stuff

      • Butter Geek

        Personally I think Normal people shouldn’t have guns. If you want a weapon you can but a Steak Knife or an Axe, not mentioning Pepper Gas or Tazers.

        • People don’t need anything more than a pistol or like.. a shotgun. That’s all you need to defend yourself. Automatic weapons are just asking to be used for horrible things

    • zess

      I’m still waiting to see if all those guns he had were legal (there’s no way those rounds were for commercial use), in which case makes it all the worst. Like to be perfectly honest what does a civilian need with automatic rifles and the like? They answer is the don’t. The only weapons the layman needs are pistols and shotguns maybe a rifle if you hunt. Truly a sad day to be an American.

    • Alaskya 1Q

      Am I the only one that finds that this sort of politics doesn’t really belong on here?

      Like, this isn’t who’s in power or identity politics, where it’s not really life threatening unless it’s an extreme case. This is a complex life and death situation that’s just going to lead to controversy and cultural clash: especially when a lot of us here aren’t a part of the relevant culture in this debacle.

      Like personally, I think the US should have stronger gun regulations. But like I appreciate that I don’t have the same insight as American citizens. Also, ‘anybody can buy a gun’ is senseless exaggeration. Yes, it’s shockingly easy compared to other countries to get a gun, but pretending there’s no regulations in place at all isn’t helpful in the slightest

      • Butter Geek

        We talk about anything on here and most Americans I know I know on here.

        • Alaskya 1Q

          The difference is we usually sh!t post and actually speak about Pokémon, never getting into a super heavy debate like this is. Like even the Trump stuff is a million times lighter because Trump’s memeable whether you support him or are against him

          Whilst a lot of members here are American, we also have a sizable number of European members, a few more international memberss, and American members who come here to have a good time, not start a controversial debate. And to be honest, PJN is a terrible place to debate because most of us here are varying shades of liberal so it usually just comes down to pedantic.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      You’re not the only one sickened by it….And it’s way over 250. It’s 58 dead and 500 injured……..It’s really REALLY awful…

      • Butter Geek

        BTW is Tracer trans? I’ve heard diffrent roumors

        • Govnah

          No? I never once heard any rumors of that

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Just lesbian, the only character i’ve heard rumors of being trans is the russian girl

          • Govnah

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            H A C K I N G N O I S E S

          • Butter Geek

            Huh. When I searched it there were mixed results

          • That’s just because she’s butch

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            And because the colour of her beam is apparently the trans flag iirc

            But eh, if she was trans we’d have already known it

          • Butter Geek

            Wait is that just because she is a little musculine with her muscels?

          • Actually the colors of her beam are the transflag though :3

        • Alaskya 1Q

          None of the characters are confirmed trans iirc, but I’m not exactly kept up on OW outside the game

        • She’s gay but it hasn’t been said if she’s trans.

          I would be so happy if she was though but D.VA is trans in my totally unfounded evidence

          • Headcanon not evidence I mixed up words

        • Govnah

          Bastion is trans actually

  • Butter Geek

    I was gonna replay Heart Gold before USUM, but I think I’ll play the games I haven’t played yet, which are RBGY and GS (with planned teams, YAY!)

    • Why would you play GS instead of HGSS

      • Butter Geek

        Because I haven’t played GS yet

        • Yes but you played a better version of it already

      • Alaskya 1Q

        Tbf, they’re more different than you expect. Phys/Special split, different levels, less moves, and different behind the scenes mechanics makes it way more different than HGSS imo than one would expect. I still prefer HGSS a bit more but like, they don’t completely invalidate GS in every single way

      • To play a game he’s never played before. (Just cause it’s superior, doesn’t mean you should never play the original)

        I bought for 40 dollars a physical copy of Silver a few years ago because I wanted to try the original game of a great game

    • MenacingCascoon

      Dont do it. Just stick it out until USUM. Build up the hype of wanting to play a pokemon game

      • Butter Geek

        But I’m weak

  • Butter Geek
  • EVERYTHING IS OK MY SISTER IS GOING TO TRY TO GET SOME OF THE SZECUAN SAUCE FOR ME

    • Govnah

      is it in ur area tho? its only at select stores

    • EarthenWarrior

      I WANT THAT MULAN MCNUGGET SAUCE

    • You have a sister? I thought you only had a brother

  • Alaskya 1Q

    Does anyone else find Pokemon games really easily repayable? It’s probably because I usually go into rerurns with a plan and don’t even touch TMs and stuff I don’t need, and I’m also not too bothered about levels

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Well they’re the most replayable games I’ve played, you can do a lot of things like nuzlockes, mono types, playing with Pokemons you haven’t played before etc..

    • Depends on the game. I feel weird playing B2W2 without playing BW first.

      • Fedex

        haha that’s exactly how I feel or at least what I’ll do if I go back to Unova games it just wouldn’t make sense

    • I don’t touch TM’s either, but I really just have to get past the beginning (its super boring at the beginning till at least the first gym in replays) but the middle is my favorite part cause you have most of what you want and have lots of stuff to still do

      The end unless I really like my team gets very repetitive sadly and makes me lose interest or if I leave for a long while before getting into the end

  • Butter Geek

    Oh wait, I won’t be able to use Gengar or Alakazam (Some of my fav Gen 1 mons I haven’t used yet for some weird reason) in Blue cause I have No friends ( that have a 3DS)

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Just ask someone on here that has VC, pretty sure it has online function doesn’t it?

      • Butter Geek

        Nope

  • Butter Geek

    So I think my teams will be:
    Blue:
    Blastoise
    Arbok
    Primape
    Exeggutor
    Jolteon
    Dragonite

    Silver:
    Typhlosion
    Ledian
    Ampharos
    Delibird
    Espeon
    Tyranitar

    • Amazing
      Ok
      Ok
      Ok
      Amazing
      Amazing

      Amazing
      Ok
      ULTRA AMAZING
      Ok
      Good
      Amazing

      • Just hope you enjoy using Tyranitar once at the end of the game after grinding forever to get it

      • Butter Geek

        Is it bad that for me design-wise it’s:
        Mareep > Mega Ampharos > Flaaffy > Ampharos

        • Yes

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Very

          Nah Mareep is vute

          • Yeah it’s a pretty cute Sheep I prefer it over whats thought to be the original

        • Nah it’s not bad I trump Flaaffy over Ampharos (it gets rid of most of its Sheep traits and has a sorta weird body shape)

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Losing its sheep traits is actually a good thing cuz it makes Mareep stand more on its own

          • But it’s body… why does it have a super skinny neck then is primarily cubby through out the rest

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Like the Silver team; Typhlosion, Ledian, Ampharos and Delibird are all neat choices :0

    • Hmm I like both teams, except a few questions

      Why Delibird? :0
      And Why Exeggutor over Victrebell?

      No problems with those Pokémon, but I do like both of these teams

    • Ceres

      Just got Gold myself and planning my team as well. So far, I’m still doubting between Cyndaquil and Totodile, and looking for Pokémon I’ve never used before. Your team looks pretty solid!

  • Ceres

    Because of the amazingly looking Hoenn gym badge collection, I decided to do a rerun of AS. I’m planning on using Pokémon I’ve never used before, like Donphan. But you can only get it in game at the Safari Zone.. So I was wondering if anyone would want to help me get a lowleveled Phanpy? I’m also planning on using Ludicolo, Houndoom and Grumpig. I don’t know if they’re good or not but honestly, I don’t care. I just want to enjoy my favorite region again 😀

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I can help you in a bit.

      • Ceres

        Really? That would be awesome! Any Pokémon you want in return? I have some on my Bank, but none competitively bred.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Could you help me evolve a Porygon? I think I have what I need to do it. I Just need to evolve this Sandygast and I’ll go breed it on X.

          • Ceres

            Sure! I’ll gladly help you too.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, Phanpy will be in a Heavy Ball and can be in an egg if you want.

          • Ceres

            Thank you so much! I can hatch it myself, you’ve done enough an effort already.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK it’s ready, I hatched it to check IVs and it’s a perfect 5, then I SR’d it back in the egg so it’ll hatch with your OT.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, coming online

          • Ceres

            Okay, I’m completely new to this. I just help you to evolve your Porygon, right? Because I don’t have one and I don’t to be a fraude..

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yeah I have it on me. Just evolve and trade back.

          • Ceres

            Got it!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Thanks for the help, I hope the Phanpy is helpful. If you need anything else let me know.

          • Ceres

            Thank you so much! I’m sure it will be once I hatched it. Glad I could help you too.

  • Alaskya 1Q

    Really hope that Nihilego’s Mother Beast form becomes a Mega Evolution for it or something, it’s such a good design ;-;

    • Even better

      Player can become mother beast

      • Alaskya 1Q

        When your Pokemon are so bad you take matters into your own hands

        But like seriously I hope we get to fight Mother Beat Lusamine in USUM, make her a typeless Arceus statwise with Beast Boost and a totem boost

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          But in Pokemon rules it’s usually “if you can fight it then you can control it” so that’d make it a weird exception

          • Pokestars studio

          • Alaskya 1Q

            PMD dropped that rule so why not main series?

            And in this case it’s understandable because it’s a human, not a Pokémon

            + you can minimise that by giving us mother Beast Nihilego

        • Yessss

          Seeing that battle intro was the most “OH DAMN” moment since the Giratina cutscene

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Where instead of Lusamine is the player that controls it

    • It could just be a form change

      • Alaskya 1Q

        Would be a bit disappointing considering it looks stronger than normal Nihilego

        + Mother Beast is formed from the physical union of a Pokémon and a person, so a Pokémon person energy union (Mega Evolution) could like also activate it or soketjign

    • Butter Geek

      Battle Bond nihilego maybe?

  • I wanna ask this because, why not?

    Have any weird dreams lately?

    • Skunt

    • Daedardus

      I dreamt that two new Pokémon games are coming out next month.

      • Deerlia

        I dreamed that a pokemon switch game was coming next month.

      • Omg I’m just realizing that they are in a dream I also had

    • Deerlia

      I had a dream where a bunch of bunnelby turned into missingno and tried to kill me…
      Other than that, nope~

    • EarthenWarrior

      I don’t think you want to hear the dreams I’ve had recently

      I may need therapy

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I dreamed a dream of times gone by.

    • Sunny

      I have been dreaming a lot about info drops about USUM. Than I wake up and I’m saddened by the fact that I am not getting spoiled this pre-release season.

    • Well I should give my response too

      I had a dream of my friend, a female friend and her boyfriend and I had no idea what was going on, but a little before I woke up I married my female friend… I have no idea what that is supposed to me, but I woke up and my first words were “WTF just happened?”

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Perhaps you dreamed the future, can you help me win the lottery?

        • Hmmm You shall get your wish

  • ShinyXatu

    We’re rapidly approaching the one-year anniversary of the Switch announcement. I still remember it so well…after so many months of rumors we were able to see what we would be playing with for the foreseeable future. I’ll admit, I was hoping for a catchier name but now it just works.

    • Daedardus

      What would you have named it though? I feel like Switch is fair name, it does get the recognition it deserves.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I’m gonna miss those months when we called the Switch “NX”

    • Govnah

      it was the day after my birthday

  • Deerlia

    A dear friend of mine passed away recently due to a heart attack, i will miss her deerly…

      im so sorry for the loss.

    • Ohh… I’m so sorry.

    • I’m so sorry for your loss me friend 🙁

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Sorry for your loss 🙁

    • Fedex

      Sorry to hear about your loss. Stay strong for your friend and we are all here for you!

    • Josh Omega

      So sorry for your loss.

  • Luigi301

    sudowoodo is a pretty good pokemon. also i cloned rollout and taught it to furret, i figured the ghost gym would only use ghost attacks so i thought why not and gave it to togepi too to catch it up with my other pokemon. it worked very nicely. and Morty was horrible! who says whitney was hard because she was simple. that dream eating gengar is what is hard

  • Well I’m going to start my Anime team (like as if I was in the Pokémon World)

    Now what to do for a starter? I have problems with them all rn cause

    -Treeko is waaaaay too weak at the start cause it takes me like 10 hits to finish off a little Wurmple
    – Not very fond of Torchic in the game (its cry is worse than its original too)
    -And I’ve used Mudkip so much in the past

    So who do I go for?

    • Deerlia

      Pikachu~

      • I wish I could start with Pikachu in AS (oh I probably should have said its in ORAS)

    • Sunny

      Ralts

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Treeok

      Make it strong

      • I tried so many times, but it just lags and gets super repetitive with Absorb

        Let’s face it, Absorb is sh*tiest Grass move ever, but I’ll manage

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Don’t evolve it until Lv 21.

          • Why?

          • Govnah

            It learns giga drain from what I remember

          • Oh that’s a good move thanks

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Just go with Treecko, it won’t be too bad really.

      • Yeah, and gives me room for stuff like Torkoal

        • Monkeyfuzz

          If you want any eggs let me know.

          • Ok and no thank I got dis

  • Ok so how’s ’bout dis for a team?

    Sceptile
    Tentacrule
    Minun
    Magcargo
    Flygon
    Glalie

    • Side note I hate codes

      It rejected my Volcanion card I’ve saved for a while now

      • Monkeyfuzz

        That’s because they expire.

        • Damn

          • Why did you wait so long?

          • I kept forgetting redeem it and I lost it a while ago for a span of a few months

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I like it, Minun might be tough to use but it’s still cool.

      • I forgot what Minun’s moves?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It gets stuff like Discharge and Nasty Plot as well as your standard Thunderbolt etc. You can probably do OK with it in game but it’ll likely rely a fair bit on the rest of your team. Discharge + Mega Sceptile could be good.

          • Hmm it could be a great addition to do the team

    • Josh Omega

      I give you a ton of points for Sceptile lol that said that is defiently a unique team. Some underused mons in it.

      • Thanks and I thought use primarily Pokémon I haven’t used/never finished a game with

        So… all of these

  • Gosh Damn It my DS is definetly broken the battery jumped from being 3 bars to red to blinking red back up to 3, then to red

    Any one know what might be wrong with It? Other than the battery is messed up

  • Shady
  • Sunny

    About to challenge the E4 with my team

    Typhlosion
    Wigglytuff
    Heracross
    Lanturn
    Jynx
    Donphan

    All level 45.

    I think I’ll lead off with Wigglytuff against Will. It knows Rollout and Shadow Ball.

  • Auragar

    Dunno how many of you care about Golf Story but good lord is the last tournament a pain in the rear.

  • Fedex

    Location: somewhere
    Film: Goblet of Fire
    Start time: soon
    * you’re all welcome in joining me, gl finding me with that terrible description ^ 😛

  • Sunny

    Challenging Lance. We are both down to our last Pokemon Typhlosion vs. Aerodactyl. Used 3 smokescreens and Flame Wheel twice before he can land the first Rock Slide-but he was burned by the second Flame Wheel. Two more smokescreens and a Flame Wheel after breaking the speed tie allows me to defeat Aerodactyl and complete the league!

    • That’s awesome man! Super proud

  • Oh, Persona 5 is so much fun. Seriously, I’ve been playing for the past few hours traversing the 6th Palace

    • Auragar

      Sae’s?

      • Yeah

        • Auragar

          Well at least the music is good, the like aesthetic or whatever you call it is pretty cool.

          • Honestly, I’ve heard it so much, It’s starting to annoy me

          • Auragar

            lol Oh? xD Well I guess that can happen when listening to the same thing for a long time on repeat.

  • Oh hey. Why does Disqus suck now? It won’t let me create a new channel, only a new website and on websites you can’t post discussions and it barred me from my channel

  • Shady
    • That’s not too bad an idea, but jeez, this looks fake af

      • Shady

        Yeah ……but if they show the captain alone I would believe it.

    • Auragar

      Why would people hate you for posting fake pictures especially since you aren’t claiming that this is real or anything you just posted a picture you think looks interesting.

      • Shady

        That wat humanz do ……….they adore objection.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Hmmmmm
      well ears do regulate body heat and a decent amount of the venom is in its ears so its possible that the venom could be frozen

    • I kind more wish it was real than fake

    • Ultron

      I love that Ice Trial Captain design. I wish it was real just for her.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Amazing I love it! Wish it was real.
      WISH. because it isnt real. Alola evolutions only happen with green background.
      But if it was real it would have been sooooo awesome. But why are we giving all these Alola forms part Ice.
      Don’t get me wrong I love me some Ice, and I shouldnt be complaining, but there are a decent number of types not in any alola forms.
      If only GF cared about Ice enough ;~;

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I mean clearly fake, but it’s still pretty cool I’d love to see an ice type captain and obviously more Aloan forms would be pretty great too

  • EarthenWarrior

    yeash i nearly got checked by a freaking Furfrou
    spammed toxic rest and snarl but a crit Draco Meteor killed it finally

    • That’s the last thing I’d want to lose to

  • Ultron

    Something I hope we see in USUM is for every type to be covered by a trial Captain/Kahuna.

    • Auragar

      Doubt that will happen.

  • Golden_Flygon

    So today’s been… half and half.

    The good that came out of today was finding out that I got a 98 in one of the tests of my lower classes (super happy about that) and it brought that class grade up a little bit higher. I also didn’t have really any homework (luckily) for tonight, so there’s that too.

    But… there’s been some bad stuff today too. I found out after school that my mom, who was at Vegas for the past weekend, was sitting at the hospital for the entire day because a couple of her clients have been shot at the concert shooting last night. She’s been through a lot today, and I’m extremely concerned for her. Since I’m seeing her tomorrow, I’m going to try to spend as much time with her as possible. I’ve been worried for most this afternoon, so that’s why I haven’t commented much today.

    I don’t often share my personal life too often here, but I felt like this is something I wanted to say.

    • Josh Omega

      I wish your mom the best. Do as you said and be there for her on this time.

      • Golden_Flygon

        Thank you.

  • InfinityD4

    It might be because it’s 10 PM but It’s still Monday the 2nd And I managed to get Sinnoh cap Instead of Hoenn Cap because I procrastinate.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Man this Snorlax hunt is already taking a thousand times longer than the Ho-oh hunt. I REALLY got lucky with Ho-oh. Full odds shiny H-oh with barely any resets (well comparatively lol) and now I’ve been spoiled. Now I’m in the trenches to get this Snorlax

    • Ultron

      Why do you even want a shiny snorlax from gen 2? It’s going to have Gluttony.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        It’s not for comparison. just that I want it. Also I’m playing HG so it won’t have gluttony

  • Alaskya 1Q

    Random theory: the three Z-Crystals we saw earlier (the red, yellow, and purple ones) aren’t the Kommonium and two other Z-Crystals: they’re Entei, Raikou and Suicune Z-Crystals

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I think we saw Dusk’s Crystal being used in a trailer and looking exactly like one of those crystals tho

      • Alaskya 1Q

        The Lycanroc crystal is brown, not red

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Idk it seems brown to me and not red

    • Auragar

      They are clearly Komo, Mimi and something else. The red one is the real mystery.

  • UnburdenedLegume
  • Shady
    • Butter Geek

      Aw

  • EarthenWarrior

    WHY DO I ALWAYS HAVE SUCH HORRIBLE LUCK???!?
    ROCK BLAST MISSES
    I GET 4 PARALYZES IN A ROW AND I CANT EVEN STALL OUT WITH PYUKY BECAUSE THEY JUST HAD TO CARRY SUB

  • EarthenWarrior

    HOW COULD I LOSE 200 POINTS OF RANK I WAS FINALLY GOING TO HIT 1.4k BUT ALWAYS THE BAD LUCK AAARRGHHHH

    • Because Pokémon requires no skill only luck and whatever the meta team comp is

      • Seraph Has Fury

        Welllll
        Skill is needed (as long as the luck isn’t overwhelmingly bad)

        • No it isn’t

          Just an understanding of how it works that you get from playing a regular Pokémon game with very little extra knowledge

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Star… why would I win games if it was all luck based? There is some skill required
            Yes, luck determines a lot, but ask literally anyone who plays the game competitively. It requires some skill, trust me on that
            And besides, saying it requires zero skill is insulting to literally anyone who plays the game competitively who doesn’t suck literal ass

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Sorry if I’m coming off a little rude, I’m having a shitty day right now and I kinda got a little ticked off at what you said so it’s coming out here a little, just gonna leave this here and I’ll stop responding to it

        • EarthenWarrior

          Which in my case its bad 24/7

          • Seraph Has Fury

            #freezehaxyo

        • Fedex

          you’re right skill is an absolute must

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Unless you run like Jirachi aka
            “HERES SOME FLINCHES”

          • Fedex

            even that don’t work as a skilled battler is always prepared to take on e.g flinch rachi

          • Seraph Has Fury

            There’s no prepping for Rachi…
            It’s more or less waiting to hit

      • Seraph Has Fury

        Have you not played a tier lower than OU?

        • Yes. I have. You’re confusing skill for not being a freaking idiot when choosing a move

          • Seraph Has Fury

            You can’t just say Pokemon requires ZERO skill
            There is competitive Pokemon for a reason you know

          • Fedex

            Skill is necessary to build good teams, to battle the best battlers even if its OU

          • Seraph Has Fury

            OU is an exception

          • Fedex

            not really you need skill/experience in OU more than any tier due to how chaotic it can be with the various threats up there and playstyles etc

          • Seraph Has Fury

            OU is literally the same playstyle every game, OU is skilless
            I play every tier sooooo
            RU is probably the most skilled tier at the moment

          • Yes I can.
            It takes no skill.
            It takes knowing how the game works. That’s it. The rest is up to a dice roll

          • Seraph Has Fury

            I’ll talk about this you when I’m not in class, kay?

      • Fedex

        It requires a lot of skill when you’re competing against the best.

        • EarthenWarrior

          I absolutely loathe when people claim to have skills or claim to outplay me when my attacks miss

          • Seraph Has Fury

            The meaning of “outplaying” is baiting someone into making a dumb choice or predicting them to fucc them over

          • Fedex

            haha yes you get people who talk trash unfortunately :]

        • No it doesn’t.

          Half of it is based on luck. Will you get a crit, will it miss, will you get frozen, well you hit yourself from confusion, will you get out of confusion, will you wake up, will the secondary effect activate

          So many factors that will determine if your Pokémon lives or not, there is very little room for skill. Very little you can honestly improve at

          • Seraph Has Fury

            But it’s not entirely luck though, admittedly the system has one HUGE flaw, but it still requires skill

          • Fedex

            Look at the bigger picture.
            Yes luck does play a major role in battles and can decide the outcome buts it’s NOT the be all end all.

            – Crits are not as game changing in this gen due to damage change
            – missing moves us a risk and reward and ultimately choice of trainer will he go for the risky but more powerful fire blast or guarantee of never missing flamethrower.

            As for skill:

            – necessary to build solid and effective teams that serve its purpose (e.g. if team is basedon Zard X it supports abd allows zard to flourish) and also make it through the devastating OU tier where there are several differentl playstyles and top tier threats one must consider when building a team if you want to be the best.

            – e.g. the various megas causing havoc like SD mega pinsir, medicham, CM mega lati, SD Mawile, Zard X or Y and much more
            – plus other threats like DD Zygarde, CM Reuni or Magearna, Alolan Marowak, Tapus esp specs lele and offensive bulu/koko
            – also prevalence of Z moves e.g. z move lando or koko
            – then you have variety of playstyles such as stall variations, variations of hyper offense, Trick room teams, Drizzle teams and other weathers, Fat teams or balanced offense.
            – Not to mention several defensive cores

            So..you have to make a team that is able to make it through such a pressure centric tier where there are several ways to win AND lose.
            As for originality its possibleand many people use their skills and thinking to surprise their opponent e.g. running unorthodox sets e.g. offensive mons running toxic to break counters

            – in the battle its about predicting, playing to ur teams strength and making a pathway to win a match in a certain way e.g. you feel ur Charizard C can win if your opponents scarfed Gatchomp is out so ur opponent knows that and is protectin the chomp and ur job is to find a way around so you can win.
            Requires a lot of thinking and strategy.
            Also skill and experience helps you to mature in ur approach e.g you cant always be aggressive making doubles but you cant be passive and predictable.

            So in summary Skill is a must.

          • Seraph Has Fury

            All ya gotta do to prove skill is say the word
            “Mindgames”

          • Fedex

            yup :]

    • Seraph Has Fury

      What tier?

      • EarthenWarrior

        PU

        • Seraph Has Fury

          That explains a lot

          • EarthenWarrior

            Every other tier is filled with annoying stuff and still im harassed by Mesprit

          • Seraph Has Fury

            TBH RU is the only remotely balanced tier at the moment
            Every other tier has something in it that’s stupid that determines entire matches from turn one

          • Seraph Has Fury

            I mean… OU is bland, Ubers is unbalanced, UU is a fucking mess in every sense of the word, NU has a few mons ie: Emboar Rotom and Barbaracle that dominate literally the entire tier
            And PU just has a few mons that destroy the whole tier simply because they lack counters

    • Seraph Has Fury

      Fucc me

    • UnburdenedLegume

      How is that even possible when we have over a 100 more pokemon?

      • Seraph Has Fury

        I mean most probably ain’t new

      • Alaskya 1Q

        Smaller fonts and trimming the fat to reduce money spent

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Already debunked to be fake but not gonna lie, i’d have loved an Ice type Nidoking https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/0abce05b8c88b7e3e97d603af4a24f16f1d099a9d49f11a12204f0630b46b268.png

    • Golden_Flygon

      Imagine if it had Sheer Force:
      STAB Ice Beam + SF would be deadly

    • Butter Geek

      I wish it was real, both the forms and the specialist

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Why is life sucking so hard right now

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Can I actually like get a break? I’m stressed out of my mind

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Why are my college process teachers such useless fucking tools

    • Sunny

      If you want to talk about it we are more than glad to lend an ear. It might not change your physical situation but it might help if you relieve some of your stress on the comment section-it has been a bad week for some.

      • Seraph Has Fury

        True… it’s just the fact that they want me to go to a college fair which is going to have ZERO colleges im actually interested in since mine have already came so I need to skip one of the two periods I seriously can’t miss today so I can avoid getting a zero

        • Sunny

          Obligatory events was honestly one of the ducky parts about high school. I am pretty sure you know what methods you would need to take in order to compensate for missing one of these necessary classes-asking others for notes or whatever applies in that scenario. These events are much less frequent in college-except for freshman orientation.

          • Seraph Has Fury

            The issue is I can’t here
            THe kids in my math class are as clueless as I am and sociology is a study session for tomorrows test so

          • Sunny

            I would say that if you are able to study by yourself or if you can ask the teacher after school about what you had missed in the review session-after explaining your situation-then you should skip sociology. If you have the choice.

          • Seraph Has Fury

            I guess but I can’t do that since I’m going to be stupidly busy today

  • EarthenWarrior

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME WE LOSE RAINMAKER BECAUSE MY LAME BRAINED IDIOTS DIDNT SPRAY THE MOUND AND THEY GET LAZY BECAUSE WE WE 4 POINTS AWAY AND LOSE

  • Butter Geek

    I really hope Togedemaru will get a Z-move and not just become a totem

    • EarthenWarrior

      it annoys me that Togedemaru cannot learn Gyro Ball naturally nor any other steel type moves

      • Butter Geek

        Okay, Gyro Ball is like the perfect move for it, it should learn it on level 20

        • Seraph Has Fury

          Gyro ball is terrible on it though, it’s a move for slow mons and Togedemaru is not slow whatsoever

          There is ZERO reason for it not getting iron head

      • Alaskya 1Q

        Smart Strike by TM in USUM or bust

    • Butter Geek

      I mean, I like it’s design and typing, but without a Signature Z-move it might not be worth it and the trailer animation could easily be for a totem

      • Seraph Has Fury

        I suppose, it seems admittedly weird for it to get one but I certainly would not be opposed to it

  • Seraph Has Fury

    My honest number one critique of Pokemon
    Fucking critical hits….
    Like I swear, that’s the one variable of Pokemon that’s uncontrollable and fucks up every single solitary thing
    The only way crits should be allowed is by using moves like laser focus and focus energy

    • Seraph Has Fury

      Oh and by certain abilities like super luck

    • Seraph Has Fury

      Seriously, fix this and you get a much more balanced meta

      • Butter Geek

        But the satisfaction when you hit a crit is great

        • Seraph Has Fury

          But it breaks the game. You can be set up for a win than you suddenly lose because the stall arcanine got a random extreemspeed crit and your strategy is gone

    • MenacingCascoon

      This is an RPG. RPG have crits. End of story. It’s just a thing. It shows you the game cant be 100% determined no matter what

    • Only certain moves should be able to crit just like only certain moves can miss under normal circumstances

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Theories say Golisopod will get a broken Z move of its own
    I wonder what it would be…

    • Butter Geek

      Guzma’s Goli’s Gigantic Grab

      • Seraph Has Fury

        Oh god that sounds like a fanfic title

    • EarthenWarrior

      Ocean’s Razorslash

      • Seraph Has Fury

        Inb4 the move gives it sheer force

        • EarthenWarrior

          Please

          • Seraph Has Fury

            I’d actually be okay with that because it’s not anything that’s too stupidly strong. I could see it going to UU with that

          • EarthenWarrior

            its such an awesome pokemon i am extremely in love with but they’re really screwing me by giving it the worst ability ever

          • Seraph Has Fury

            There are worse abilities
            Regigigas says hello

          • EarthenWarrior

            well Golisopod doesn’t have a powerful 160 attack stat

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Your right it has a 120ish one with literally some of the best bulk in the game
            I’ll admit it though the ability does screw it up
            If they added a regenerator effect that might help a fair bit

          • EarthenWarrior

            just make it 25% or let it preform its move

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Better idea, let it heal plus have the ability to choose switching out

          • EarthenWarrior

            no they would never let you chose thats way too easy
            it needs to have strengths and weaknesses

            but then again Stealth Rocks ruin its reentry

          • Seraph Has Fury

            If they made it’s ability like that it would still not be amazing y’know

      • Alaskya 1Q

        That’s a terrible name tbh

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Can we nerf psychic terrain? Kay thanx

  • Seraph Has Fury

    I wish alolan mons weren’t literally 99% garbage

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Challenge: Defend slow start as an ability

    • It gives you time to plan what you’re gonna do?

      • Seraph Has Fury

        You know what it does right? Halves attack and speed for five turns

        • It halves your Attack and Speed? I thought it just delayed you for 5 turns

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Nope attack and speed
            The ability is literally pointless

          • Wow, that’s actually retarded

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Watch the language Alexis

    • Trick room

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Can we just talk about how Laser Focus is literally ages better than focus energy

      No, because its not

          • EarthenWarrior

            well the sp def drop and then the crit psychic and then the missed head smash and the crit z move

          • Seraph Has Fury

            The smash is kinda expected but I’ll give you the crit z move, that 100% costed you

          • EarthenWarrior

            YEP AND NOW IM LOSING BECAUSE MISMAG LOWERERD GOLBATS DEF AND IT KOED BEFORE I LOST ROCKS

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Crits are a bane to teh game

          • EarthenWarrior

            i’m fucking done, i’ve been LOSING ALL MORNING SO MUCH MY ANGINA IS FLARING UP AND NOW I GOTTA GO TO WORK FOR THE NEXT 7 HOURS WHICH WILL BE STRESSFUL AS HELL

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Hint: when you start to lose a bunch, take a break
            Playing Pokemon on tilt is literally agonizing

          • EarthenWarrior

            no because then they win and I lose
            That I’m so bad or unlucky it forces me to stop because it’s so pathetic

            And the day is not getting better THOSE FREAKING RETARDS WHO CONSIST OF THE NIGHT PEOPLE TRASHED MY STATION AND LEFT IT A HUMONGOUS MESS THAT I HAVE TO CLEAN BY MYSELF

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Again, take breaks, untilt yourself
            It works a lot

    • Seraph Has Fury

      Also your team is pretty good outside the Viv
      The viv is honestly a bit of an unnecessary weakness and I HONESTLY suggest Vikavolt as a replacement
      Besides that you actually have a pretty nice team

      • EarthenWarrior

        yet i’m constantly having bad luck

        • Seraph Has Fury

          Same
          But the viv…. throw that out boyo

          • EarthenWarrior

            Its extremely powerful

          • Seraph Has Fury

            Yeah but the meta doesn’t exactly work out well for it
            Vikavolt is a REALLY good choice right now as it beats a LOT of current high tier threats and I think it would fit really nice on your team

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Lets start a chain! Replace all nouns with crash bandicoot

  • Butter Geek

    What about making Emergency Exit boost Goli’s attack when returning into the battle?

  • Seraph Has Fury
    • EarthenWarrior

      Please tell me you weren’t that awful awful stupid team

      • Seraph Has Fury

        Im trying to get a win with it

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Cherrim is actually a super cute pokemon wtf

  • Alaskya 1Q

    They should’ve let you enter the Pokemon centre before your first time in kukui’s lab -_-

    Resetting for the Pikas is gonna be so fun

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I think seeing as there is Tauros in the way it’d be fine. Really the Mum should show you the center not Lillie, she shows you everything later anyway.

  • Seraph Has Fury

    SUGOI

    • Surf plz

      • Seraph Has Fury

        N-NANI!?

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      何?

      • Seraph Has Fury

        Yooooooo

  • Alaskya 1Q

    Favourite Lycan and Necrozma forms?

    • Sunny

      Rockruff and Dawn.

    • Seraph Has Fury

      Midnight Dawn wingz

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Midnight and Dawn

    • Alaskya 1Q

      Double Dusk

    • Dawn
      Dawn

      • Wait is Dawn the Lunala?

        • Alaskya 1Q

          Dusk Mane and Dawn Wings, so yee

          • That… seems backwards but yeeee

          • Alaskya 1Q

            Dusk is the end of day, dawn is the end of night

            I think it’s fitting considering it’s Necrozma taking them over tbh

    • Midday
      Dusk

    • Butter Geek

      Midday I guess (I’ll use Dusky in UM tho)
      Not sure (I’ll play UM tho)

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Shiny Midday
      Dusk Mane

  • How do bird trainers know what birds even are

    • Alaskya 1Q

      ‘Bird, dog, fish’ etc are actually just terms used in universe to refer to Pokémon that look a certain way (which just happens to align with our irl definition)

      Just a headcanon but it’s what I roll with

    • Seraph Has Fury

      What about whale trainers

      • Well you have one line of wails so

        • Seraph Has Fury

          What is Kyogre

          • Alaskya 1Q

            Our only dolphin Pokemon

          • An orca

  • Alaskya 1Q

    Ngl I’m gonna get super salty if DuskLycan isn’t just a normal evolution for Rockruff in the future, I get why they’d promote it for USUM but beyond that it should really just be evolve during that one hour of dusk

    • Seraph Has Fury

      Inb4 its not

  • Seraph Has Fury

    Just watched the first episode of a new anime
    cliches.exe
    Also the main character had naruto levels of screaming every second but his voice sounded like a dying bird

    • Black Clover?

  • Butter Geek

    Won’t Thunder/Fire Fang be a little OP at the very begining of the game?

    • Alaskya 1Q

      No? They’re only 65 base power, non STAB. We’ve gotten the similarly powered Razor Leaf around the same point in games before, as well as the slightly weaker Bite

      • And Litten gets Fire Fang pretty early too so

    • EarthenWarrior

      Does it really matter -__-
      Pretty much every Duskroc is going to be running

      Accelerock
      F-T Fang
      Bite/Crunch
      Z-Celebrate

      That’s all any

      • Alaskya 1Q

        Accelerock? Not when it’s Z-Move is a thing fam

        • EarthenWarrior

          It’s not like you’re getting it right off the bat

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Stone Edge will probably be a late game TM lol

          • Alaskya 1Q

            Except Butter was talking about the beginning of the game where it’s still a Rockruff so Accelerock isn’t relevant either

      • Butter Geek

        Happy Hour?
        The Lycanroc Z-Move?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Are you getting Stone edge in the beginning of the game?

          I’m talking the special Rockruff during the campaign

          • Alaskya 1Q

            You didn’t specify a time kiddo

          • EarthenWarrior

            Are you blind Butters literally said in the beginning

          • Alaskya 1Q

            Are you blind, beginning obviously refers to first island where you’d pick up the Rockruff lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            no you ass, Butters said if the elemental fangs would be op because you’re getting the special Rockruff as early as connecting to the wifi
            You won’t get stone edge or its z move until later

            Ergo the beginning of the game

          • Alaskya 1Q

            At least people like ass

            ‘Beginning of the game’ = ‘will the fangs be OP in the early game’, where you don’t get accelerock anyway because Rockruff won’t evolve into Lycanroc until you’re nearly done the second island

            Your first comment was almost as irrelevant as you ♥

      • I won’t run Z-celebrate (I find it a useless move) and since I don’t play the story mode for competitive, Celebrate will only be there till an attacking move is brought out

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Useful yes but not OP really

  • Deerlia

    Here’s a mystery for you guys for fun~
    Anyone remember the X and Y Ghost Hex Maniac?
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f6e2b10c9f6e05ee47e5e6f7e8a4760e0dff13706c9087ed2cd418fb6295fd3f.jpg
    Well, I had 2 theories on her, one from the same gen and a reference to the past one.
    Theory 1- OR/AS Demise, a murder mystery…
    Look carefully at what she says in the pic above…
    Now look at this: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a2051cb7f5e1d061c49ec1d88a9f524e7a6be219d2d6e8bd9e6d24a15aa4a430.jpg
    The idea is then that OR/AS take place way before X and Y, after all the Royal Unova wasn’t built yet in OR/AS (At the Oceanic Museum it says that) She died somewhere between the two games, and more likely in X and Y given some other unique clues, such as a screaming situation and a possible murder…
    Theory 2- Unova She falls, Under one Strange Roof…
    Remember how i just said in theory 1 the Royal Unova wasn’t built yet? Doesn’t mean Unova didn’t exist, in fact, Unova’s war also proves that it is pretty old and divided from Kalos.(Remember the founding of the US from Great Britain?) Maybe this hex girl simply haunted a new building as a reminder to the actual player, not the IG Avatar, that she is keeping an eye on them from Gen to Gen… in different ways and forms. Unova also had a strange and huanted place, with another dead girl too… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2b34214977e15f553b17cb7f2e8057ebed12a031028140dd4092bdb16fbe808b.png
    Yep, the Strange house From Black and White 2… She seems to be like the same concept in Unova as in Kalos, a floating, inanimate, teleporting character sprite. (I’m certain the game creators made no mistake, perhaps a nod to her?)
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/73183c1c433089db202dd672fa3046437aa62c69d012f3863eb1b1dcb3b04b07.jpg
    She might be simply interested in the two diverse cultures and wanted to let the new player (or returning player) know that she was important somewhere, maybe in the past, or maybe in events to come…

    Those are my two theories, hope you enjoyed them and gave it a little more thought, this is just for fun, so try not to start any drama on it, i was just coming up with my ideas of it is all.

    • Butter Geek

      The Gen 6 ones were on purpose for sure, not sure about the Unova ones. I’d belevie something was going on if in Unova and Alola there were Hex Maniacs saying that same line.

    • Umm… Unova wasn’t built yet? What?

      The time line goes

      Kanto/Hoenn – 3 years later – Johto/Sinnoh – Some time – BW – 2 years later – B2W2

      The entirety of Unova was not made in less than 10 years lol

      • I just realized that you didn’t say it wasn’t built yet oops I’m sorry I’m dumb

    • My actual theory is that gf didn’t have an idea they just put it in there to keep us talking about the games before we realized there is nothing to do when you beat it

    • ShinyXatu

      It’s a bit freaky honestly. “You’re not the one” is just an off-putting statement. “The one” probably means the person who killed her who she’s trying to haunt. The Unova one is even creepier because there is absolutely no reasoning for it. The developers may have just been bored…

    • Alaskya 1Q

      Unova ghost girl was just there to set up your encounter with Cresselia, or at least that’s what they changed her to in between BW and BW2

  • Butter Geek

    Just discovered that if I ever’ll want to use Swinub in Platinium it’ll evolve after the first time I level it up

    • EarthenWarrior

      Unless you breed it to know Ancient Power you gotta Tutor it

      • Butter Geek

        It’s:
        Catch Swinub at level 33
        It evolves after you level it up once
        Level reminder and it evolves

  • Govnah
    • TheHipster

      Reaper gets ANOTHER skin? It better not be legendary! While Ana still needs a legendary one lol.
      Anyway, I’m liking that McCree! Would love to get it!

      • Govnah

        I feel like you can do so much with Reaper with Halloween events

        • TheHipster

          You can, but let others shine too lmao!

          • Govnah

            I want a spooky butler/maid skin for someone

          • TheHipster

            I heard rumours Ana will get a doctor plague skin, so I’m hoping for that lol. IDK who could get a butler skin? Reinhard or Soldier76 maybe???

          • Govnah

            if a bulter skin happens i will scream this into my mic when I kill them

      • Plague Doctor skin can still happen

    • THESE SKINS ARE RAD

    • Wishlist:

      -Sombra skin that doesn’t suck
      -Spider Orisa
      -Plague Doctor Ana
      -Witch Mercy to only be 1000 and not 3000

      • -That’d be cool
        -How about Spider Widowmaker?
        -Don’t we already have a Plague Doctor skin for Reaper?
        -Yes

    • Butter Geek

      Doomfist Halloween skin has potential

  • Alaskya 1Q
  • Murder Freak

    Guys
    Its October 3rd (at least over here)
    And we don’t have Halloween themed names/profile pics
    It’s important
    All of Twitter has Halloween names
    Why should we be worse
    (Changing name as we speak)

    • Alaskya 1Q

      Because the meme will get boring in 28 days because of how minimalist and small of a community that ‘regular PJN posters’ is

      • Murder Freak

        dont ruin my spook hype

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I’m only doing it in the 31th so it feels more special 🙂

      • Alaskya 1Q

        Eh only one day?

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Yeah you’re right, only doing it in the Halloween night 😀

          Eh, if I find a good one I might use it for more time really, who knows

          • Murder Freak

            What about SᑭᑭᑌKO

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I was thinking about making something in Illustrator today or tomorrow. Wanna make something nice.

      • Murder Freak

        And Maybe change the name to TheUltraMonster666

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Lol maybe we shall see what I do for my name 😉

    • Govnah

      No

      • Murder Freak

        Not even Govhead/Cupnah?

        • Govnah

          no

    • Because I’m not home and haven’t been able to draw Witch Star yet

      • Govnah

        Im perfect as a cup

    • Isn’t my profile pic scary enough?

    • Oh darn I just renamed… be right back

  • Murder Freak

    Woah
    Someone made a (kinda) funny Woah joke in October 2017 (3:25)
    https://youtu.be/JNPJC3Cddyw

    • Govnah

      no screw him, hes annoying

  • Govnah

    my top 3 games of 2017 currently. (odyssey will def destroy Rabbids out of the spot)
    Persona 5
    Cuphead
    Mario+Rabbids.

    • I’m proud of you

      • Govnah

        I just realized something
        Playstation exclusive
        Xbox Exclusive
        Nintendo Exclusive

        • Well, Cuphead is on PC too, but counting only consoles:
          *Illuminati intensifies*

          • Govnah

            Technically you can only play cuphead on a window OS. owned by Microsoft who makes xbox 😮

    • I’m assuming BotW isn’t there because it’s just obvious

      1. BotW
      2. Sonic Mania
      3. Samus Returns

      • Govnah

        Actually BotW is my most disappointing game of 2017

        • Murder Freak

          You gave Star a Heartstroke

          • Govnah

            and? im clearly allowed to have a opinion

          • Murder Freak

            Yeah I know JK. What was disapointing about it tho? Just No spoilers

          • Govnah

            the world yet, beautiful felt very empty, The four main dungeons felt too simialr to me and didn’t feel unique, the shrines got too Repetitive, Felt like all I was looking for in the world was Shrines,Towers and Koroks seeds, nothing felt really alive to me, its just my silly old opinion tho

          • Maybe you just kinda went through it too fast? I took it really slowly and enjoyed it much more. I spaced out each divine beast

        • Lying is a sin

          • Govnah

            if i said i liked the game would be me lying

          • Why didn’t you like it?

      • Tick

        Ive heard samus returns is really great, would it be good for someone whos never played metroid?

        • I think zero mission is a better entry point but it’s still pretty good

      • Alaskya 1Q

        Huh. Haven’t really bought any games that came out this year, I’ve mostly been buying older games I never got the chance to play :0

        • Im probably forgetting some. This year is so good for games

    • Murder Freak

      I just realised that I play almost No new games rn. I just replay pokemon and wait for my Christmas Switch.

    • Favorite 2017 games in my book
      1. Yo-kai Watch 2: PS
      2. Miitopia
      3. Mario+Rabbids (haven’t played, but looks like fun)

      USUM will knock off Mario+Rabbids and knock everything down one place

      • You haven’t played much lol. There were so many amazing games this year

        • Don’t play Switch cause me don’t have one and I only play on Nintendo systems (other console’s games are too expensive)

  • Wow, I’m super tired from school and getting my HPV shot.

  • Alaskya 1Q

    Does anyone ever really want to do like a creative thing (drawing, writing, etc) related to the jungle and then immediately gives up? Me asf tbh

    • More often then I want to admit

      • Alaskya 1Q

        Relatable asf

    • Murder Freak

      Once or twice

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      *Flashbacks to the anime PJ fan fiction that Fairy made*

      • When was that again?

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Months ago, back in April or May, maybe even further back

    • Yes alot

  • EarthenWarrior

    The most intense fight I’ve ever had in my entire life!!!
    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ru-640328425

    • Sunny

      I wanted to see Donphan vs. Donphan. Why must I be disappointed today of all days.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Well he chickened out because he assumed I was gonna lead with rocks
        But Abomasnow wrecks most of that team alone

  • Ultron

    Revali from BoTW was an asshole. I’m glad he died. Urbosa ftw

    • I love Urbosa so much

      Like

      Honestly I wish I was half as awesome as she is

      • Ultron

        Daruk was the only other decent champion. Urbosa easily had the best voice acting work in the game though.

        • I’m so glad they are making the champions ballad so we get more of them <3<3

          • Ultron

            I want the urbosa amiibo

          • I’m hoping I’ll be able to get them all

          • Ultron

            Im too poor to buy them all. But luckily I dont like all of the champions

          • They’re in a bundle I think

          • Ultron

            Nuuuuu it’ll probably be expensive then

    • Seraph Has Fury

      STAHP ILOVED HIM WHAT

      • Ultron

        His one memory with Link where he questions why it was Link to be her guard he’s a straight douchebag

        • SpooktralSeraph

          HES FALCO

          • Ultron

            Yeah I mean he looks cool (and like falco) but overall he’s my least favorite so far. I still need to finish his divine beast though.

          • SpooktralSeraph

            BUT LIKE HIS BOW IS SO COOL
            ALSO I LOVE HIS VOICE

          • Ultron

            Mehhh he’s no Urbosa

          • SpooktralSeraph

            BUT HE’S A BOID

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      This made me literally laugh out loud. You and I have the same opinion on this subject hahaha

      • Ultron

        I don’t like his voice actor much either. Overall not a huge fan of the english choices :////

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          I thought the actors were fine. Nothing crazy, but they weren’t bad by any stretch.

  • Murder Freak

    LOOK AT THE PIKACHU IN THE MIDDLE I WANT IT
    https://twitter.com/pokemon/status/915308540314521600

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Scared Litten tho, so cute

    • Ultron

      Buy the plushie of it. I bought the mimikyu and rowlet ones

    • I want Litten and Popplio. Litten’s costume kinda reminds me of Darkstalkers too

    • Golden_Flygon

      Rowlet tho XD

      • Ultron

        Rowlet with a mini pumpkin rowlet hat is perfect <3 UGH I LOVE IT

  • Oh no!! I forgot about the Pikachu event, and I JUST missed the last day for a Hoenn cap Pikachu!

    Does anyone know if these Pikachu are tradable?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      They are.

      • Oh good. Now I got to update my systems though. It’s been a long time since I’ve played on the 3DS.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I’m not sure about on the GTS though, but player to player works.

          • Oh, well fudge. I will get one of the other four then. Just got Sinnoh on Moon. I’ll wait for another week.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I think it can be Wonder Traded. The only ones I’ve seen on GTS are hacks asking for impossible things like Male Ditto.

          • Of course. This is why we don’t get nice things. *cougheternalflowerfloettecough*

            People hack and cheat to get nice things, so the rest of us can’t get them legitimately.

  • Well I may have changed, but I’m sad 🙁

    To put it briefly I’ve been thinking about my friend (Remember at the beginning of Summer about my female friend who moved away? Yeah that’s the one) and I realized today how much of a fool I was that I never told her how I feel or ever tried to get to know her (Some friend I was)

    I hope she kept her number from when she was up here because then there’s a chance she will see my text and then I want to get the closure I need and move on with it.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Hope it works out for you, it’s terrible living with regret.

      • Yeah I feel foolish and she always will hold a special place in my heart for what she did for me

    • Auragar

      I’m gonna say no she probably didn’t, but sucks you are feeling like that, it is no fun having regrets like that.

      • I may find a lucky break in one aspect though, I’m friends with one of her close friends and maybe I can get her to help me contact her (I hope she can/will try help me)

        • Auragar

          Mmn…

    • You’re young. You’ll find so many other girls. You will be alright fam 🙂

      • I guess so…

        • My friend told me that there are like 4 people that have a crush on me and I literally will never know who they are unless they tell me.

          Worst case scenario is they say “no”

        This makes my 3rd shiny in the line, I caught 2 shiny Sandslah previously in 2 different Safari Zones.

    • Sunny

      It’s different from the rest. Kill it with fire!

      • Monkeyfuzz

        It’s a Ground type, it’ll just create a shield of sand (Sand Shield should definitely be a real move).

    • I miss horde battles

    Goblet of fire ✔

    – Easily one of the best HP films
    – Its Azkaban taken to the next level
    – Very very dark theme and much more serious/mature than prev films but still has moments of light humour
    – Many deaths owes to the serious nature of film
    – Acting was great I liked Dumbledore here he was very serious at times, trio has grown up!
    – Loved how there were such a variety of characters old and new e.g Mad eye, Cedric, Death eaters, Ministry of magic and the 2 schools etc
    – Triwizard tournament was amazing, just so thrilling and a cinematic master piece
    – Plot was very good a lot of maturity, so much was happening in this film it was jam packed
    – Voldemort returns need I say moarrr!

    Next up is the order!!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Harry and Rons’ long hair looked stupid to me. Other than that I love the film. It is one of my favourites as is the book (which has time to delve deeper into stuff and more dragons). Oh I also don’t like the Krum Hermione relationship,but mostly because I had a crush on her since the first book I read.

      • Fedex

        Yeah me too I didn’t particularly like Krum although he was ok i guess.
        The film is amazing, I hope to read the books after the films. Its just that extra detail you get from them.
        I mean goblet of fire is a massive book isnt it haha

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Oh yeah, you could totally get 2 to 3 films per book were there time and money for it. Fortunately you can use the films to inform how you imagine some of the visuals the book describes too. Now I want to re-read them.

          • Fedex

            Oh yes absolutely having read deathly hallows the detail and how JK creates a thrilling story is amazing!
            And you learn so much more than the films.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            There are things I found hard to visualise early on before the first film released, largely due to my age when reading the early books, like Hagrid whom I had an odd image of before seeing it, but now the movie version completed him for me and now that is the one that resides in my imagination as I read it. It’s nice that things can go both ways like that .

          • Fedex

            Yeah that’s a good point picturing them from the films really helps too. I guess that can be said for Hogwarts as well!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yeah the locations, especially places like Gringotts are well adapted to film. There are alot of places that are book only too like secret passages that I do kind of miss in the films tbh.

      • Fedex

        oh and are you looking forward to the possibly 4 films in the fantastic beasts saga and hopefully Dumbledore vs Grindelwald??

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Yep, as much of that universe I can get, as long as they have a good direction they’re going in and keep up the quality.

          • Fedex

            They have same producer and director and JK is writing the scripts.
            Just when I thought HP was done we get this. Makes me really happy.
            Grindelwald is like the best character they could focus on imo

          • Monkeyfuzz

            My main worries are: It might feel a bit drawn out by number 5, really depends where they go with them; Jude Law as Dumbledore, we’ve had 2 excellent actors play him quite differently, as he’s one of my favourite characters I hope he is once again done justice on screen; Johnny Depp as Grindelwald, he’s only really been good as Jack Sparrow in recent years imo. Also I really liked Collin Farrell in the role.

          • Fedex

            I think Depp is gonna be perfect for Grindelwald just by lpoking at the end of the last film that evil grin he had.
            Well JK said shes planned it out and I guess we can trust her and the support of WB guys.
            I have hopes for them!

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          I feel like additional Fantastic Beasts movies are unnecessary. It was good as a stand alone movie and doesn’t need more stories to follow up

          • Fedex

            I see but honestly JK is taking a very active role in these films as the script writer or something so hopefully we’ll be getting good films.
            And naaaw the more films the better esp it being Grindelwald Dumbledore focused!

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Not saying I wouldn’t be interested in seeing new stories, but I don’t think they need to be Fantastic Beasts related. I’m actually surprised that she’s taking an active role in the newer movies. She seemed to want to get a way from HP a little now that the core story is done. I recall hearing her say that she almost didn’t want to do the stage play as she was done with the characters more or less.

          • Fedex

            She said something that it was never going to be one movie but she expects 5. I guess she cant stay away but at the same time if there wasnt potential she either would not get involved or not give the green light to Warner brothers.
            Dont forget this builds up the greatest battle in history so we need sequels!

          • Ultron

            Idk, I would like to see the legendary dual between Grindelwald and Dumbledore on the big screen.

          • Fedex

            Me too. You get the feeling that they’re gonna build it up very nicely over the next few films!

          • Ultron

            I hope the duel is as legendary as it’s told to be.

          • Fedex

            Well with JK writing the scripts I do wonder what she has up her sleeves. Like what majes a dual legendary? what makes it so good?

      • Ultron

        It really bothered me that the guy they chose to play Krum was…not hot. Like he’s supposed to be good looking. The actor is not…no offense to him.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I had no opinion either way there, I disliked his personality alot of the time though.

          • Fedex

            Yeah i hated the arrogance
            but LOL at Ron in the film how he calls him the enemy etc and totally ruins Hermiones mood. Rupert was amazing

          • Ultron

            Yeah that part always bums me out! But really it’s just part of Ron’s character to be jealous!

          • Fedex

            He was mad af at Harry competing in the TW tournament haha wasnt he

          • Ultron

            He’s alright. He could just be hotter lol

    • Ultron

      It’s a pretty good adaptation of a very long book. BUT BUT BUT in my honest opinion, they really screwed themselves for skipping out on Dobby’s role! Dobby has a good role in books 4, 5, and 6 and then when it came time to adapting book 7 they were like, “Well, we definitely can’t avoid Dobby any longer. Guess we’ll have to reintroduce him 5 movies later.” And they did a good enough job with that, but it really wasn’t necessary because he should’ve been around already. That and he should not have been wearing those slavery rags in 7 pt. 1. Ugh that bugs the crap out of me.

      • Fedex

        I know leaving him out was unnecessary. Not sure why they did tbh
        I guess you’ve read the books?
        I only ever read DH but I hope to read them all once im done with the films

        • Ultron

          Yes I love the book series! My favorite ever. He’s pretty important in the books, they just replaced his role with other characters (Neville usually)

          Spoilers from the books if you care:
          He actually steals the gillyweed for Harry. He also discovers the Room of Requirement for Harry and then warns Harry that they were ratted out. He also told Harry that Malfoy was using the Room of Requirement in Half Blood Prince. And then he has his bigger role in Deathly Hallows where he saves Harry & co.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        They mostly left out Dobby subplots and S.P.E.W due to time constraints and flow which is very different in a movie than a book. It is a shame as Dobbys’ end was much more impactful in the books imo. I agree with the rags bit, I assume they did it partly to help casual audiences remember this character that hasn’t been around for 4 movies.

        • Ultron

          It’s a shame because it broke the lore that they had already established about House Elves

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I agree, it may also have been money saving, not having to re-design him. Not like they explained what happened to him after film 2 really anyway.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Harry Potter will forever be the Pizza of movies for me. It’s not that I need to watch it crazy often, but if someone offers it to me there’s absolutely no reason for me to turn it down. It scratches this little itch I have for magic and mystery. I’m not crazy into medieval/whatever kind of stories as I’m way more interested in futuristic things, but the idea of magic has always intrigued me. I love the idea of abnormal things existing in the regular world. Which is one of the reasons I love Fantastic Beasts. If the HP series continues as we’ve seen I’d love to see more interactions between muggles and those in the magical community. I’d like to see characters that are muggles harness magic in limited forms themselves. Like they wouldn’t be able to create magic themselves, but using charmed items to do various tasks would be cool. Anyway the idea of magic in the normal world is a cool thing. It’s that kind of thing that really makes me love the Persona series. It’s weird and out there concepts happening to (relatively) average people.

    • Fedex

      ✌✌✌

    • Monkeyfuzz

      The muggles you speak of would be Squibs, we’ve only had 2 so far iirc in the films, Filch and Mrs.Figg. I agree with you on watching the movies, though if I’m watching 1 I kinda want to watch the rest.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Fair, but I’d like to see some non magic related people do something cool too. The both of them at least were born into the magical world. They just happen to not have the capabilities that their parents did.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          The main problem is they need to uphold secrecy where they can otherwise muggles might turn on them and more bad wizards would rise, which is tough to do if you have muggles using magical items. Kowalsky happened to be a nice guy, I guess certain verified Muggles allowed some magical items could be OK, as long as it’s nothing dangerous and they can keep the secret.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            True, but I think it’d be interesting to see the secret get out. There’s this constant fear that Muggles would freak out, but by the time the core HP story ends maybe people at large would be more accepting. It’s hard to say, but it’s an interesting concept I feel will never be dug further into…..

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Given the way people react to those whom they deem ‘different’ now I’m not sure it’d go well. Muggles would likely fear and lash at at these people that are significantly more powerful than them. Magic was not always hidden.

    • EarthenWarrior

      my take on Harry Potter

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Of course that’s you’re take…….

        • EarthenWarrior

          That’s because i’m a bloody proud dwarf!
          Ye think you can put onna dress and wave a wee little toothpick around and fling yer hocus pocus like some pansy!

      • Ultron

        Your take is sh*t take and you should feel bad.

  • Fedex

    Ok guys Order is up next.
    My reaction will be up later tommorow hopefully!

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      the order is the most boring of the films imo. I feel like the majority of it is incredibly forgettable and the only crazy good part is the ending at the ministry.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        They leave too much out from the book, it’s still good. There was also a tonal and creative shift that is better handled in the book.

      • Ultron

        At least they cast Luna perfectly

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Also Thestrals <3

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Oh Luna is the greatest lol

  • Hey guys question about Instagram (yes I’m not technically advanced for this level of hell)

    If I send a message to someone in particular will it be private or will everyone be allowed to see the message?

  • Ultron

    I hate that it’s the full incense and not the lax incense that you need to breed a Munchlax..they should’ve just switched wobbuffet and snorlaxs items when gen 4 came out tbh

  • ShinyXatu

    Everyone’s asleep right now but Serebii just updated: global premiere of USUM footage tomorrow afternoon (or today afternoon?) It could be something decently substantial like the Lycanroc form!

    In addition, we’re T-8.5 hours from the Google Pixel event, and I’m personally excited for the Google Home Mini and Max (if they’re even going to be announced at all). Yes, I’m a slave to technology, sue me.
