DISCLAIMER: Rumors are not confirmed information, should not be thought of to be confirmed information and should not be shared as confirmed information. These are for discussion purposes.

We shared a rumor with you that Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon may be getting additional Alolan Forms of older Pokémon in a previous post, but now we’re going to share a little bit more. Please be aware that some may find this a form of spoiler so you are advised not to read further, even though we are posting this as an unsubstantiated rumor totally outside the scope of official information.

The reason that we are posting this to append the previous rumor is because of the confirmation we got about Rainbow Rocket’s takeover of Aether Paradise (which could be seen on the Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon download card). A Chinese fan sent us some of this information which also seemed to line up with other things we had heard from separate sources.

  • Alolan Oddish, Alolan Gloom and Alolan Vileplume will all have Poison/Fairy-typing
  • Alolan Parasect will be Bug/Ghost (the rumor did not mention Paras so I will not infer anything there)

I am taking this with as much salt as you should, but I’m definitely hopeful because there seems to be a lot of potential for all the Pokémon named in the rumor and it would be great to see these unique typings as well (Shedinja aside)!

  • Lazy terror

    Alolan forms for my two favourite Gen 1 Pkms?

    I’m sold

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Honestly? Bug/Ghost Parasect makes a LOT of sense. It’s already a walking talking zombie being eaten away by the mushroom on it’s back. It’s basically dead anyway. I buy as possible. that said the two typing for the Oddish line and Parasect are predictable. I’d like to see something crazy like Alolan Marowak. I’m sure there’ll still be surprises tho. I think next week’s trailer will be our first taste of the new Alolan forms. It’s likely gonna be a big trailer given how they’re giving us a heads up so why not show us something we thought wasn’t gonna happen? lol Anyway I think next trailer we’ll get a lot of confirmation for a few of the rumors and leaks we have so far. Maybe even have some rumors drop out of the race altogether.

    • Gikie

      Isn’t there an Alolan Marowak already?

      • Murder Freak

        I think he meant he wants Alolan Parasect to be as crazy as Alolan Marowak

        • Gikie

          Gotcha! Lol I’m too tired to think apparently haha

  • Josh Omega

    Really hope this is true. Really want more alolan forms. Just hope some Pokémon besides just gen one get some if it’s true

  • Yay more Alolan’s!

  • Auragar

    lol No. Anyways nice to hear news is confirmed for the 2nd. We didn’t get a trailer this week though like I had anticipated so it will probably just be then instead but eh that is fine.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      What makes you “lol no” it? It’s not like this is a crazy out there rumor that couldn’t possibly happen. Plus given how a few of the rumors that are steadily gaining credibility say there are Alolan forms I don’t see what the problem is.

      • Auragar

        Because GameFreak would have shown off new Alolan forms by now if they existed.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Not if there are only a few of them this time around. It’s still likely that we’ll get at least one more new UB plus we still have the light form of Necrozma too. There’s still plenty of things they need to show off and could have shown off earlier, but didn’t. I’m not sure the “they would have shown them already” argument is a good one. They can show things off in any fashion they want really. Whether how they show the new stuff is well done is another issue.

          • Auragar

            There are no more UB either and light form as you are calling will likely not be talked about and saved for players to discover ourselves. But whatever believe what you want I would gladly be wrong.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            How can you say with 100% certainty that there are no more new UBs? Why would they only create 3 new ones and show them all off before release? That makes no sense given how even with when they reveal a large majority of brand new Pokemon they still keep a few hidden for people to discover. I’m not saying 100% that there will be new UBs or new Alolan forms, but talking as if you have the game already seems a bit close minded……..but like you said we can believe what we want. Agree to disagree I suppose.

          • Prashanth Raghuram

            maybe the same way ORAS showed… EVERY SINGLE FREAKING NEW MEGA… Gosh was that a massive disappointment. Not agreeing with, just saying.

          • Sunny

            There is actually an interview on YouTube that says there are more new Pokémon to be shown that they can’t talk about right now. From the context it is implied that it could be more UB.

  • Sunny

    I’m siding with Pokejungle in his sugesstion to take this with as much salt as possible. I am very happy about these rumors, but there is one thing that I do dislike. That the Alola Oddish line is supposed to be Poison/Fairy. Don’t get me wrong I love the type combination. My issue-and this has been on my mind for a while especially for this generation with all of the new typing combinations-we are reaching a point where we all type combinations will have at least one Pokémon; meaning there won’t be any more new typing combinations. I am really interested in how everyone else feels about this. Please reply if you have any thoughts.

    • Murder Freak

      Yeah, the roumor’s probably fake. And actually, I don’t see how no unused type combinations could be a bad thing, could you explain what you mean?

      • Sunny

        What I mean is that when new games come around, and new Pokémon are being shown, one of the things that I have noticed garnering a lot of excitement is the typing of the Pokémon-and a lot of the speculated typings are new typing combinations. I am wondering how this speculation period will change when all type combos are used. Will there still be the same level of general excitement towards the speculation of a new Pokémon’s type?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Imo yes, it will just shift to lesser used combos like Ground/Electric.

          • Sunny

            We do need more Ground/Electric types.

    • It may be fake, but I fimd its healthy to get a little hype over long shots like this.

      • Sunny
        • Murder Freak

          Ready or not
          Here we… Dance!

          • Sunny

            Ayy Papi!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Tom Hanks is my favourite.

          • Sunny

            David S. Pumpkins was a fantastic character. I am saddened that they might butcher it by a less than spectacular performance in the Halloween special tomorrow.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I don’t know what this is from, I just like Tom Hanks.

          • Sunny

            Saturday Night Live’s Halloween episode last year. Literally my favorite Halloween skit of all time.

  • Murder Freak
    • Monkeyfuzz

      Nice, congratulations, hello Inky 🙂

      • Murder Freak

        I was Magikarp Methoding, at 40th egg I got a shiny but it went to waste since I forgot to use a forgein Ditto. But the second time I was super lucky and got a shiny on 2nd egg!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          What do you mean? Did you not save before the first one? It’s good you got it so soon after anyway though.

          • Murder Freak

            No, It’s just that I wasn’t using Masuda Method, Which meant the shiny egg wasn’t shiny when I restarted the game.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            So the shiny karp came up without Masuda Method?

          • Murder Freak

            Yeah, I was really lucky and it went to waste lol

          • Monkeyfuzz

            That’s annoying, still I guess it worked out in the end.

    • Hi Inky! Do you know Blinky, Pinky and Sue?

      • Murder Freak

        Wasn’t it Blinky, Inky, Pinky and Clyde?

    • Sunny

      I actually prefer Mimikyu’s non-shiny form, but good effort on your part.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Ok so that French interview from last week that claimed no new Alolan forms, has been confirmed as fake. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CI4knVxiImc

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Wow, so it was all for clickbait?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Yep

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Apparently that particular website is quite known in France to be clickbait

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Still annoying. Do you think it would have gained as much traction were it not for Joe?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Probably would because social media

    • Max van den Elsen

      Was quite obvious with the poster in english even tho french translate everything.

      on top of that, i love it that i cant even post a comment over that the journalist needs to post sources without sources the entire claim is bullshit.
      Paul went to journalist school and cant even post a damn source some good school that was.

      Also here is some actual information
      https://twitter.com/AggressiveZone/status/923823062180683776
      Translated from the twitter from the pokemon company
      We getting new news guys the 2ond of november

    • Murder Freak

      YESYESYESYESYESYESYES!!!!!

    • joker901

      Well, despite I usually trust pokesirena, this does not “confirm” the interview as fake. I mean a leaker debunking something is not actually a reliable source…

      • UnburdenedLegume

        The website is notorious in France to post fake stuff for clickbait?

    • Auragar

      Makes sense it was fake but there are no new Alolan forms.

  • SpooktralSeraph

    OKAYOKAYOKAY FUCC MY ABSENCE BUT MY LEAST FAVORITE BUG IS POSSIBLY GETTING MY FAVORITE TYPE IN THE ENTIRE GAME I WILL ADORE THIS THING IF IT GETS IT AND INSTANTLY PUT IT ON MY TEAM HOLY F**KING SHITT

  • Murder Freak

    So my UM team is confirmed to have:
    Decidueye
    Lycanroc Dusk
    Alolan Persian
    Inky the Shiny Mimikyu (that I just bred)
    Maybe Kommo-o

    • Sunny

      My US team is confirmed to have:

      Nothing.

      Life is an uncertainty.

      • Murder Freak

        Yeah, I wanted to have that with UM, but It’s kinda Impossible for someone like me

        • Sunny

          No it’s the same for me. I want to plan my team as well, but I have gone through so many revisions already and the fact that new Alola forms are not set in stone (eh I am keeping my comment relevant to the article) is what is preventing me from doing so.

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      So if UB-Adhesive is available early on in-game then it’s on my team. Otherwise:
      Primarina
      Lycanroc Dusk
      Alolan-Oddish
      UB-Adhesive
      Alolan-Parasect
      Golisopod
      Alolan-marowak
      Mimikyu
      Volcarona
      Lopunny

      Basically a combination of these that doesn’t repeat type.

      • Sunny

        That is more than 6. You are breaking the rules of he game by using all of the interesting Pokémon.

  • temporario23

    Man, screw Oddish! I’d prefer an Alolan Bellsprout line a lot more.

    • MK126

      Maybe we’ll get A. Bellsprout in the opposite game A. Oddish is in

  • Murder Freak

    Fun fact:
    There are two kinds of Radioactive Alligators both of which humans created. That is both horryfying and an amazing idea for a Poison type Pokemon.

  • MK126

    Alolan Oddish just might make it onto my team and maybe even Alolan Parasect! I hope we get more than this but if we dont than for once in my life ill be using an Oddish in one game and a Parasect in another. I feel like Poison/Fairy might be a stretch for a typing though. Maybe they’ll have it by the garbage place on the second? island

    • Sunny

      I think that I agree with you on using Alola Oddish if it is Poison/Fairy. I’m not sure about it being available early on since we are confirmed to have a formal trail for Mina. There aren’t really any Fairy types on Poni Islanf aside from Granbull so they might just add the Alola Oddish line to Poni Island.

      If I do use it my team might look like

      Decidueye
      Komala
      Alola Oddish
      Bruxish
      Lycanroc Dusk
      ???

      • Murder Freak

        The only thing wrong there for me is the lack of Grass type. Wouldn’t they still be plants?

        • Sunny

          It doesn’t really bother me that much. I mean we have Dragalge a Pokémon that inhabits water and it is a Poison/Dragon type.

          • Murder Freak

            But its prevo is still water

          • Sunny

            …Pancakes.

          • MK126

            But it evolved from a water/poison type but i see your point. Its like Dhelmise being Grass/Ghost with a steel powered ability and being found by fishing 😂 who at GF was on drugs that day when they made that decision

          • Sunny

            Of course, Dhelmise. How could I forget. We had a lot of great Ghost Pokémon this generation. If Alola Parasect is true then that is just another great one to be added to the batch.

          • MK126

            There are a lot of native Alolan pokemon I want to use this time. Ive already used: Decidueye, Primarina, Toucannon, Mudsdale, Riombee, Salazzle, A. Muk, A. Raichu, Crabominable, Lurantis, Bewear and Minior

          • Murder Freak

            That’d make 3 Grass/Ghost mons from alola

          • Sunny

            The rumor is predicting it to be a Bug/Ghost. However if this is true then that would be 3 Grass Kanto lines with Alola forms.

      • MK126

        Well we can confirm that Mina will prolly have a Mr. Mime since Mime Jr. is in the game. I’d also think that she’d have a Comfey and a Riombee as well

        • Sunny

          That is a possibility, but what I meant is that Alola Vileplume may be the Totem Pokémon.

          • MK126

            That would be interesting. I’d rather see Totem Riombee tbh

          • Murder Freak

            Ribombee is Mina’s Signature so it probably won’t be a Totem

          • MK126

            You right lol I forget what pokemon are on the trial captains teams

        • MenacingCascoon

          What if Its partner Mime’s and they use Reflect and Light Screen. The terror

          • MK126

            Oh god LOL better sacrifice a fast fighting type to brick break those

      • My team will definetly be
        -Incineroar
        -Dusk Lycanroc
        -Alolan Parasect
        -Mantine
        -Shiinotic
        -??? Maybe another Alolan or may be I’ll pick a random Pokémon

    • Parasect will definitely get a spot on my team, due me wanting a more Special attacker on my team

      • MK126

        I think the Alolan forms were basically made for Kanto pokemon that no longer have a chance at being used competitively since there are now pokemon that do what they used to do but better. Oddish/Paras always seemed mad basic to me so now with the possibility of them getting new and interesting typings I’m intrigued to use them

  • MenacingCascoon

    First, I think these types aren’t real. I think people are just listening to whatever they see goes with the previous rumors. So I highly doubt this.
    Second, If they do bring back alola forms, I really hope, but strongly doubt, they will add more than just 2 different lines. What if they use both Bellsprout and Oddish line and make it version exclusive. Also does it HAVE to be Kanto mons? That’s just annoying. GF is not good at diversity.

    • MK126

      I think the Alolan forms were basically made for Kanto pokemon that no longer have a chance at being used competitively since there are now pokemon that do what they used to do but better.

  • MenacingCascoon

    Well, Hapu has been eliminated. She didn’t really have a stand out character anyway, so good riddance. Now there is exactly 20 characters left which also means 21 days (exactly 3 weeks) until USUM.

    • Sunny

      I was wrong…

      • MenacingCascoon

        Yea, I thought it would be someone else, but I guess Hapu was just boring. She was though.

    • Ultron

      #OliviaNeedsToGo

      • Murder Freak

        #No

    • I think you accidentally took Ryuki off

      As far as I remember he was still available for elimination

    • Obviously Hau is gonna win this. Nobody likes him.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Bah these cant be real, I mean Oddish just won’t stop being a plant, and because Gloom has a branched evolution that skips a gen that is clear indication that it won’t have an alolan form

    And I’m really hitting Odyssey hard today I have 40 moons in Desert kingdom

    • Murder Freak

      Just please no SMO Spoilers (or Smoilers if you will), some of us have to wait a while to get it

      • EarthenWarrior

        What have I spoiled, unless you are blind everyone has seen the desert level, I’m just saying I found 40 moons

        • Murder Freak

          You haven’t spoiled anything yet, just reminding you for the future

    • Parasect always has a shot (it does make sense in a way with Parasect being… what it is)

    • Ultron

      Im sure this fake, but havent you learned by now to stop trying to apply logic to alolan forms..?

  • joker901

    Things that are still in mystery:

    – Star shaped pokemon on the box arts.
    – Mimikyu and Togedemaru speculated z moves.
    – Rainbow Rocket plot.
    – Festival Plaza battle facility.
    – Fire trial update (today a new picture of the trial has been posted on the official site: nothing changed with A marowak stupid game apparently).
    – Fairy Trial.
    – Gym simulation (?) in Malie.
    – Different plot (we know that Lilie escaping from AP and Nebby on the bridge with koko will happen again so at least the first part looks the same even if URS is replacing AF in the intro).
    – Legends found in Ultra Space. How and how many?
    – Is it possible to ride Solgaleo in UM and Lunala in US as we saw on the download cards?
    – New UBs, possible.
    – New Alola Forms, always less possible but still not impossible.

    • Murder Freak

      Mimikyu Z-move is confirmed to exist

      • joker901

        Yes and Togedemaru is right there too. But we don’t know what these moves will do in battle.

        • Murder Freak

          Togedemaru isn’t confirmed to have a Z-move and it probably doesn’t. The scene from the trailer looked more like a Totem battle

  • Daedardus

    What are you doing here and why are you not playing Super Mario Odyssey? Not having a Switch is no excuse.

    • MenacingCascoon

      I only play Pokemon games! Theyre the only thing worth my time. I dont have a switch

    • Murder Freak

      Is watching Stranger Things S2 an excuse?

    • I’m broke, But it and Kirby Star Allies are my two games I want as soon as possible

    • UnburdenedLegume

      I bought AC Origins today, not getting SMO for another 2 weeks

    • Auragar

      I have a Switch but am no interested enough in SMO to spend money on it.

    • Pajamawolfie (towelgirl21)

      I might ask you the same question.

  • Prashanth Raghuram

    GUYS I know again what fear is…
    Stranger Things 2 reminded me..
    YELP

  • Sweet Tooth

    This is interesting… I think I would love a Poison/Fairy and Finally Shedinja will not be the only one with such an interesting type

  • UnburdenedLegume

    I need both these regional variants in my life. Poison/Fairy is a new dual type and even though i like Shedinja, i dont like using it in playthroughs so hopefully this rumour is true about both Parasect and Oddish line.

    • MK126

      Is Shedinja any good? It having only 1 HP really threw me off when playing RSE

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Eh it can only be killed by supereffective moves, so that gives it an advantage in certain battles. I’ve never seen people use it in competitive battles though, its probably viable enough for a regular playthrough but i just never really gave it a chance

        • MK126

          Really? That seems rather gimmicky even for in game usage

          • UnburdenedLegume

            It has a decent movepool with access to Shadow Sneak, Shadow Ball, Phantom Force and Heal Block through level up and TMs like Substitute (which wont kill it because its not SE despite Shedinja having only 1 HP)

        • joker901

          Despite the fact that toxic, sandstorm, hail, burn, stealth rocks, spikes and whatever SE move oneshot it.

      • Ultron

        No. But it’s certainly cool.

      • Pajamawolfie (towelgirl21)

        It’s great for catching certain ORAS legendaries.

        A Shedinja that knows False Swipe

        Good for the Lake Trio, Cresselia, Suicune, Kyurem, Zekrom, Virizion, Cobalion, Dialga, Palkia, Lati@s (with Eon Ticket event), Kyogre, Rayquaza, and Deoxys.

        Have a strong Pokemon False Swipe them to 1 HP and then let Shedinja float there while you throw Pokeballs or get him to smack the target as needed with False Swipe.

          You deserve it but I’m still salty

    • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

      I guess you weren’t Reggie for running into him

  • Apparently in the media there is outrage on a new game called Draconis Go
    https://www.google.com/search?q=draconius+go&safe=strict&client=ms-android-verizon&prmd=nsiv&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwj53uj3zpHXAhVC7IMKHVwgBYYQ_AUIDigA&biw=360&bih=560&dpr=4

    They claim they aren’t ripping off Pokémon, but looking at some of the parts of it. It uses very similar backgrounds, uses the same gym system, Has the same looks during battle (has the same setup as Go where you can only fight in Gyms) and a very similar method of how to catch Dragons as to Pokémon

    Idk do you think it’s a knock off or do you think it’s a unique, original idea?

  • Pajamawolfie (towelgirl21)

    I seriously doubt these are real.

    • Auragar

      They’re not but people like to believe things that won’t happen for some reason.

  • Murder Freak

    Would it be weird if my Normal/Ground Hatchick fakemon evolved into either into male Psychic/Ground Roosken or female Fairy/Normal Chichen?

    • For the Female yes, because its Normal typing is moved from being its Primary (Which is very Uncommon in Pokémon that keep at least one original type)

      So I’d say make it Normal/Fairy

      • Murder Freak

        Yeah, That’d make more sense, but it doesn’t fit the mon that much. I would make it Fairy/Ground, but I already got one Fairy/Ground mon so I don’t know

        • It’s quite alright imo to add multiple of a new type. As long you don’t have like a 5th of your dex already being Ground, then Fairy/Ground could work

          And why wouldn’t it fit for the Female to switch from Fairy/Normal to Normal/Fairy? The male is fine as is on the other hand

          • Murder Freak

            It’s just a special dynamic between the two mons, Fairy and Psychic. But maybe I’ll make it Normal/Fairy…

  • Stevosan

    I’ll be super cheesed off if Alola Vileplume becomes a thing but Bellasom gets nothing. That’d be dumb and there’d be even less reason to use it.

    Intriguing if Alolan parasect was a thing, what, did it just die after the infestation of the shrooms? That’s dark.
    :’P

    • InfinityD4

      I mean it’s already a Zombie

      • Stevosan

        Perhaps parasect is finally free and under its own control in death?

  • zess

    I’ll have two Fairy/Ground fakemon in my region. One is a Hen and the second one is based on the kids story of Sandman.

  • pokedigijedi

    If the rumors are true then……

    1. The Vileplume family lost their Grass typing weird, but at least we get a shiny new/unused type combo 🙂

    2. Hopefully Alolan Parasect is better than Shedinja, although the bar is set low for that one

  • zess

    Finally I can set this baby up and play me some Super Mario Odyssey! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/61e7b0855b3a8e8cece335793ba1c5061f2a6d60ccdde75f7f788c44b39d07cc.jpg

  • Stephen

    Super Mario Odyssey is so addicting and keep posting up pokemon ultra sun and ultra moon rumours even if they are not true its keeps the excitemen

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Your young male accomplice has reappeared from his busy break in order to show the children how Fakémon are done 👀 👏 😝

    http://pasted.co/411aa906

    • Wait your breaking too? 🙁

      I really like your Pokémon though! 🙂

      I still have to finish making some of mine

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I find it odd for the Normal type rodent to have a name that suggests poison when it has no Poison typing or ability.

  • Hey guys I need a tad bit of help

    I want to have a good typing for my Raccoon starter, it’s already Grass, but I wonder what to use

    Most likely types I can think for it are: Dark, Psychic, Ghost, or just Pure Grass

    I can make names and stuff though, but your welcome to give suggestions

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Dark seems to make sense if it is based on a thief. Ghost could also work, if it’s based on an extinct species, myth/legend or Tanuki (which could also apply to Fairy).

      • Yeah my original thought was to make it based on a Trickster and an honorable thief (won’t steal things unless their is a good reason to)
        So I guess I can just keep Grass/Dark

        And soon I want to shed some light on one of my new Pokémon based on dew (its not related to Dewpider) and Guttation

      • EarthenWarrior

        I’ve dabbled in a raccoon Japanese thief (the ones with the bag thingy that wraps around the nose)
        But it uses its dense bristled tail to store objects

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Sounds good. I think there are ways to make it different enough to other Raccoon fakemon while still using the thief theme.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Rakarobba
            The Stealer Pkm
            Dark/Normal
            Pickpocket
            A plump rodent like Pokemon with dark grey fur with shaggy horizontal stripes, it has a hood like head with two large black leaf shaped whiskers and yellow eyes, it’s large tail is bigger than its entire body and is clung closely to its backside hoisting numerous bristles

    • Ultron

      I’m thinking psychic because they’re so smart. But dark is also appropriate as well.

  • EarthenWarrior

    bleerrgghhh I’m surprised my body isn’t reduced to a smoldering husk of flab and neurons

    I’ve put in at least 17 hours into oduhsea

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Rest, it’ll still be there tomorrow.

      • EarthenWarrior

        *My unconscious body braised and emitting smoke*

    • SpooktralSeraph

      How far are you? I want an opinion on a certain boss when you reach em

      • EarthenWarrior

        Hmmmmmm I arrived to New Donk city

        • SpooktralSeraph

          So … did you see the mecha wiggler from the trailer?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah but I left it in worse condition when I found it

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Oooh

  • ShinyXatu

    YIKES, that’s too much good stuff in one day. Odyssey is TOO amazing: like, imagine your expectations and then multiply them by 5. Surprisingly, my favorite element so far is the HD Rumble which is extremely satisfying when throwing the hat or doing pretty much everything. I’m a few kingdoms in so far (and I spent ages in the Wooded Kingdom for some reason), yet I’ve barely scratched the surface. Also, I’ve watched the first few episodes of Stranger Things 2 and I’m impressed so far! It’s really cool how they can add new characters and retain the general “feel” of Hawkins, Indiana. It’s been a good day.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Finally gonna try to play Mario. Been out all day as well as had an edit so I didn’t have time. Now it’s time to unwind for the night and play some good old Mario. Here we go!!!

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I can’t speak or think in coherent sentences nor compose proper witty banter oh woe is me the pain it all

    My brain is fried big time

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Is the game as easy as it looks?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Well it’s a Mario game, it’s not rocket science but I kid you not its a collectathon, big world’s and so many things to find

        But it’s still fun to be a tunneling brain parasite and meet charming locals including some thicc mermaids

      • Ultron

        I imagine it’ll be like the other 3D marios. Pretty easy until that one random level comes along and completely f*cks you sideways

        • EarthenWarrior

          there is one section where you have to control bullet bills in a maze and the controls are so wonky that you can’t move straight and the slightest clip of the wall makes you explode same goes for poisonous lakes, you can’t even dip a toe without all of your organs going into shock

          • Ultron

            O joy, lookin forward to that

      • ShinyXatu

        It’s just like Breath of the Wild: easy on the surface, but when you really get down to completion and things like that it’s VERY technical sometimes. It really just depends on how you want to play.

        • EarthenWarrior

          My original goal was to not leave world’s until I 100% them and hell just so much ground to cover ((also am I the only one getting motion sickness with the way the camera shifts from 2nd to top down))

  • EarthenWarrior

    Siiiiiigh I wish Star was still here, she would’ve loved this
    https://youtu.be/I0leUetSocw

    • Ultron

      Not a huge Mina fan because she’s kind of an after thought of a character, but yeah Star would probably appreciate this

  • SpooktralSeraph

    Okay so NOW I’m leaving for a while for real this time
    P E A C E

  • ShinyXatu

    Any PlayStation fans around here? This Monday is going to be HUGE! I’ll still be knee deep in Odyssey, but PGW is worth paying attention to. Get this: 7 game announcements and 21 game updates, and that’s before their actual showcase, which will reveal even more high profile AAA games. Apparently they’re saying that “E3 was only half the story”, with this being the second half. I can’t take all of this gaming madness, 2017 won’t let us get away with our sanity!

    • Auragar

      I own a PlayStation but I’m not expecting much to interest me considering I only like jrpgs really.

  • Deerlia

    I beat odyssey hours ago, i was really, really surprised, it as very good, but maybe it’s that i have become better at mario or the developer timeframe, the game could virtually be bested in 1 day if you play it enough… It still has lots of promising after story elements, i won’t spoil anything about them or the story though…

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Jesus you beat it it already? I’m like a world in and have already spent a few hours just looking around and trying to find moons/purple coins……….lol

      • Deerlia

        Maybe one day this deer should speed run~

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Maybe hahaha

      • Daedardus

        IIRC, the main story is pretty easy to complete, but the amount of collectibles is insane and you unlock more stuff once you beat the endboss.

    • ShinyXatu

      I’ll probably finish the story tomorrow, if not Sunday. I’m incredibly excited to see what other crazy things Nintendo came up with.

  • ShinyXatu

    That stretchy Wiggler thing in Odyssey is legitimately one of the most satisfying playable “characters” to use in any game I’ve ever played. It just feels GREAT for some reason. I want Nintendo to create an entire spinoff game based specifically around the stretchy Wigglers like they did with Captain Toad (and I’m only partially joking.)

    • Murder Freak

      That would be a spoiler dear sir

      • ShinyXatu

        Sorry if you felt spoiled by that but it’s really not a spoiler. It’s been in at least one trailer.

    • Lazy terror

      It’s definitely the sound it makes, it already feels good just by watching imagine how satisfying it’d feel by playing it lol

  • Josh Omega

    Well I picked up my copy of odyssey last night. Now I just need to pay off my switch and I will be good to go gamewise for a good while. Now the question is will I play mario odyssey or breath of the wild first https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6791e4703779aeaa11b09b69a1e5dc51487121a3cfa867ef580100d5b8170d14.jpg

    • ShinyXatu

      As a person who’s played both, I’d say you should start with Odyssey and then go to Breath of the Wild. The main story of Odyssey (seems to be) fairly straightforward, while Breath of the Wild will take ages to finish no matter which way you slice it.

      • Josh Omega

        Thanks 🙏 I will keep that in mind! Either way I am just excited to finally get a switch in a few weeks. Just a few more payments and it will finally be mine lol also will have a digital copy of splatoon 2 since i managed to get the bundle so that’s a plus. I honestly don’t know if I will get USUM or not because of it since i will have so much to play on the switch. Will have to wait and see if they reveal something next Thursday to entice me to buy a copy!

        • ShinyXatu

          I really hope you enjoy it, I know you will! For me personally, the whole state of gaming during the Wii U era had me depressed, thinking that Nintendo had exhausted all of their ideas. But the Switch, with the help of its amazing games (especially first party) has made me a believer again when I was VERY far gone. Now I believe that the sky’s the limit and we’ve only scratched the surface! I know this all sounds dramatic but for me, it really is that revolutionary.

  • Murder Freak

    Last two nights gave me weird dreams. One of them was Star visiting Poland and the second one was that Ash’s Litten evolved into a bipedal Torracat

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Hmmm very interesting. Masuda and Ohmori are in southern France to study caves https://twitter.com/Junichi_Masuda/status/923815337652391936

    • Murder Freak

      Maybe we’ll revisit Kalos in Pokemon Switch.

      • Fedex

        As a Johto – Kanto?
        So if they make an italian based region where you’d then travel to Kalos.
        That is the only possibility in my opinion we’ll see Kalos again in the near future.

        • Murder Freak

          I still think/hope that Pokemon Switch is the UK, you could travel there with an underwater train.

          • Fedex

            That would be cool but persobally I hope they go more Italian or maybe Greek or Egyptian. Egyptian will be really cool all the possibilities.

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      That could totally be a route!!

    • Zoruart

      Could this be the destination for the railroad station in couriway town!!!

    • Shady

      How can he support this shiiit? http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1509203176840.png

  • Fedex

    So currently in Hoenn having a good time I have 3 weeks to catch a ferry to Alola!

    My realistic expectations/hopes for usum:

    – Excellent post game involving all evil teams twice as long and good as delta ep.
    – New Tapu forms, alolan forms and ubs
    – More changes to Alola possibly new island but graphically better changes to layout and higher demographics of alolan people
    – Wanna see character changes in Hau and Lillie as proper rivals with one being champion
    – new interesting characters
    – More side quests and features such as battling facility and maybe BW2 like medal achievements?
    – super interesting main game!
    – Just want this to be the culmination of all past generations!
    – gym feature where each day the gym layout and leader changes everyday based on past 6 gen gym leaders
    – several post game quests

    • Ultron

      I would like Tapu forms too. I’m not the biggest fans of them right now. They’re definitely unique and well designed, but they don’t much appeal to me.

      • Fedex

        Something is telling me if they have made tapu forms then they’ll be shown next week. I like how they pulled it off with the therians!

        • Ultron

          I love the therians. I definitely think we’ll be surprised next week

          • Fedex

            When they revealed them back in BW2 in corocoro I was so happy and kinda shocked.
            Yeah I can see something big on the horizon!

    • MenacingCascoon

      This list is exactly everything I want. Good job! You even included medal system which I adored.
      I want some gym/kahuna rematches and battles. SM really suffered from lack of repeatable high level battles post game.To raise my pokemon to level 100 fast.

  • Fedex

    So next weeks trailer/reveal what do you think they’ll reveal AND what do you guys personally hope for!
    As for me I’d like a huge ultra trailer full of info about team rocket, post game, new tapus or alolans and show of Alola in it’s new flesh! And finally surprise me GF!

    • MenacingCascoon

      Honestly I think they will reveal rainbow rocket and all that. Maybe a new post game ally like how Looker and Anabel were.
      What I WANT them to reveal is the (hopefully) new battle facility that’s super cool, or new alola forms

      • Yeah cause isn’t it true since XY they have revealed the Battle facility in the game prior to its release?

    • Auragar

      Mimikyu’s zmove and rainbow rocket beyond that I dunno.

  • Murder Freak

    Still hoping for a Water/Fighting Evo!
    https://twitter.com/pokemon_cojp/status/923836675771346944

    • EarthenWarrior

      You do realize if it gets an evo people would just slap evolites on it?

      • MenacingCascoon

        Eviolite mons are the best. You kidding? and Yes I know you hate them, it just adds the diverse people crave so much.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Diversity smersity all of them just end up being second walls
          Name one Pokemon that actually differs because its previous and isn’t setting up

          • MenacingCascoon

            Piloswine is a better wall, It makes them better defensively
            Porygon 2 is a good wall, but Z is an amazing attacker
            It doesnt mke sense to get mad at the item thats doing it’s purpose. course it makes them a better wall, thats the eviolites purpose. It’s like getting mad at assault vest for raising Special Defense.

          • EarthenWarrior

            It most certainly does make sense because of what it does, do you know how effing annoying it is to be on the receiving end of a evolite wall,

          • MenacingCascoon

            Oh I know its highly annoying, I play as much as you. You just gotta have a knock off user. Or just beatit out. Everything has a weakness. Just gotta play around it.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Bah still doesn’t change how much bulk is still invested into the annoyance, it’s not like they’re not gonna stop being annoying after its knocked off

          • Do Clefairy count?

      • Murder Freak

        And what’s wrong with that?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Do you not know how bulky pyukumuku is on its own
          All it needs to do is poison and get the respective wall up and it can just spam recover while nothing scratches it

          • EarthenWarrior

            And add unaware and it can’t be killed without status or taunt

      • Shady

        Exactly

    • Lazy terror

      What it’d evolve into tho? It feels complete to me

  • MenacingCascoon

    Incredible. The one voted off was Ilima. I thought he would get pretty far, he’s a cool dude, and I liked the fact he used Smeargle as his main pokemon that beat all the starters. He beat me the first time I think lol.
    https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1V-V_edp-qpKl7CAwSPZHXx31PPqkIRMruql1Vvn-9bg/edit
    Vote for least favorite 3 again!!
    Recap:
    25 Sophocles
    24: Faba
    23: Molayne
    22: Ryuki
    21: Hapu
    20: Ilima

    • Murder Freak

      Illima’s Signature should be Komala

    • Ultron

      Yeah his smeargle is pretty tough

    • Sunny

      Wow…I’m shocked as well. I wanted him to go far as well. As of now he is probably the only one that I regret to have voted already been voted off already.

    • Lazy terror

      Really Ilima?! How dare they >:[

    • Yes! My choice is down!… Who to pick now 🤔

    • Pajamawolfie (towelgirl21)

      I didn’t like Ilima’s prettyboy look. But I do like how he’s the “prince among trainers” and he stands there watching his pokemon battle like this. What a dork!

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/01111cebb5390c79286b3b2e593e92325fbd58a0c5533cfb15df308d7024e177.png

  • EarthenWarrior
  • Murder Freak

    What level should my Normal/Ground fakemon Hatchick evolve at? (It can evolve either into Fairy/Ground Chichen or Psychic/Ground Roosken) I’m thinking Maybe lv 20 or 22

    • Sunny

      59.

    • Lazy terror

      Depends mostly in the moveset, the area it’s found and how strong the evo is

      • Murder Freak

        Hatchick is found on Route 3 or 4, and the evos aren’t that strong maybe base stat 400 or something like that. Both evos are special attackers, Chichen has higher defence and Roosken higher Sp. Defence. Chichen can learn moves related to eggs, some Ground type moves, some fairy type moves and few Flying type moves. Roosken learnes moves realated to vision and waking up, morning etc, some Psychic and Ground type moves and few Flying type moves.

        • Lazy terror

          Psychic and fairy seems weird types for Pkms that seem to be solely based on Roosters and Chickens but anyways because it’s found at such early routes and have low base stats I find lvs 18-25 to fit better.

    • Dazzling Fireworks

      25?

  • Murder Freak

    I can’t decide if product placements on ST are cheesy and obvious on purpose or not

    • Lazy terror

      ST?

      • Murder Freak

        Stranger Things

        • Lazy terror

          You should just enjoy them, cheesy product placement are the best xD

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      They’re great don’t think about it haha

    • Ariel

      The KFC one was soooo obvious, but it made me laugh.

      • Murder Freak

        ”The best thing is that it’s only 8000 calories” was better

  • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

    Holy shet the coolest thing just happened when I was maining Zenyatta this morning.

    So I’m on the Defend side and the payload just got to the 2nd door. I’m sneaking up on enemy players and taking them out with Orbs of Discord while also being sneaky with healing up my allies too. I then hear a Meteor Strike from an enemy Doomfist being launched, which now I’m trying to avoid getting killed. Then the Meteor Strike shows that it’s landing where I’m at, which I prepare for the worst when I’m suddenly seemingly levitating up. I thought (at first) it was a bug with Meteor Strike, but then I realized the 2nd door was shutting. And just before the Doomfist lands, the door pushes me outside and it closes, saving me from the ult.

    Then I’m just sitting there dying. XD

    • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

      This is about Overwatch BTW

      • Dazzling Fireworks

        Oh good, I thought this was how your day went

  • Wes

    I hope this becomes reality because Parasect is one of my favorite Pokemon, and if it gets my favorite typing as well I’ll be completely sold on these games.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I’m just trying to rack my brain around it, it sounds good in theory but when I think of it Bug/Grass is from the bug body and the parasitic mushrooms on the back grass

      But for the alleged zombie parasect thing where it’s officially dead and still being controlled is perplexing

      Wouldn’t it being dead get rid of its bug typing since it died making it a Ghost/Grass type

      Or did it just die and the mushrooms died as well because there are no more nutrients to suck up but somehow the body moves on its own

      • Murder Freak

        Maybe it should be Ghost/Grass but GF did the right thing and said we got enough of those

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Maybe something causes the bug part to start rejecting the mushroom, killing it, but then the bug part remains mindless so a new soul takes over the body or something idk.

  • Well going to go after Alola Cap Pikachu now

    I wonder what starter I want in my team because I already own one stage of all three

  • ShinyXatu

    And just like that, I’ve completed Super Mario Odyssey! Except for one little detail…there’s a CRAP TON OF STUFF still left to do! I think I’m going to write out my full thoughts later, but let me say that this game exceeds expectations more than I thought possible. And while I’m going to refrain from giving away any spoilers (especially because I haven’t even seen everything yet), there were lots of things that surprised me and made my spoiler-free tirade worth the trouble. PLEASE play this game.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Augh am I the only one actually not rushing, I just hit the luncheon kingdom with at least 187 moons and I keep hearing schmucks already beating it left and right
      I keep telling myself to enjoy it and make it last but constantly hearing people already done with the main story just bugs me,

      • ShinyXatu

        I didn’t rush at all, the game is just so addicting that I’ve been playing so much. I found as many secrets as I possibly could in each kingdom and soaked it all in. I’m at 292 moons as of my last save by the way, and I don’t feel like I’m anywhere near the end. I don’t plan on rushing that either.

        • EarthenWarrior

          =__= makes me feel so freaking behind….this is why i should avoid my family and constantly play until I have a decent amount…

          • ShinyXatu

            I’d consider it rushing if somebody got every purple coin and Moon in Odyssey before 2018. There’s just that much content packed in. Definitely don’t let your competitive side get to you because it’s worth savoring the experience, I promise you.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Nrrrrrrgh you just don’t understand how potent that side of me is, it’s just eating away at my desires for savory gameplay and replacing it with gratifying completionist moxie

          • ShinyXatu

            Seriously though, I can’t wait until a couple months from now when the game exits “spoiler territory”. There is so much I want to rave about, it’s almost hard to contain myself. This will likely be one of my last Odyssey related posts for a while so I can focus on keeping it to myself.

    • Daedardus

      Can you spoiler how many kingdoms there are in the campaign? I’ve just been backtracking the first four kingdoms for all the moons and coins. One problem I have though that the ones left are really obscure it seems, but there’s still half left of them lol.

    • Deerlia

      391 moons and counting, this is a crazy high objective count game, woop woop~

  • ShinyXatu

    So GameXplain just posted a video (which I won’t watch) with a title claiming that you can get 999 Moons in Super Mario Odyssey. That’s even higher than the number of Korok Seeds, which I still plan to do as well. Nintendo…this is not okay. My life is over, OVER I TELL YOU!

    • Ultron

      Is there even a use for all those moons though?

      • Maybe they made a secret boss like as a bonus for it and that boss would give some awesome item idk

      • Daedardus

        It’s Super Mario. If you’re asking “Would doing this get me something?”, the answer would always be “yes”.

        • Ultron

          I would guess like moon (star) world or something

  • Fedex

    Ok does anyone have a spare Hoenn cap Pika?
    I guess I could trade a Sinnoh cap in return if really necessary?
    I reallly really want one but made a mistake of not getting it whilst I had the chance :O

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Someone on Serebii was offering one for a 20th anniversary event if you had any spare, might be worth a try. Failing that I really think they’ll re-run the event in the future, possibly through a second chance newsletter code that they have done before.

    • Sorry my friend I only have the one 😓

      I wish I had a secondary one to givr

  • Can I just say how much I love Charjabug!

    I love it design, it’s shiny, it’s cry, the fact that it stands out in the secondary regional bug stages, the fact you keep one for so long during the Game, the fact that it has a 400 BST, it’s a battery and it has some good move at its disposal

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cf59b9557931464230766808d9ced289be08f5cb6a8227643ba3da33b4a222d7.jpg

    Only one thing I don’t get, how does a block jump up a hit an opponent with Acrobatics? Either way I love it!

  • BanzaiFerret

    The Rumor Come Out – Does Vileplume Is Alolan??

    Kinda disappointed that Bellossom isn’t getting an Alolan form too, I’ve always liked it better than Vileplume. If only it were a Kanto Pokemon..

  • Pajamawolfie (towelgirl21)

    Yo-kai watch is hard because you have yo-kai befriend you, mainly based on luck. I’m a pokemon trainer: I like to beat creatures up and forcibly remove them from their homes whereupon they develop Stockholm syndrome.

    • What? I do admit its hard, but that sounds intense

    I officially declare the month of October “Odyssey Addiction Awareness Month”. It’s a genuine and daunting threat to society. Progress so far: 420 Moons or so (laugh all you want). I now call this game “one more Moon Simulator 2017”.

  • EarthenWarrior

    AGH I THINK SOMETHING IS WRONG
    I’m trying to do post game Cascade Kingdom moons and #33 where you capture chomps and fling them to break the fossil is broken for the life of me they do not make contact with the rubble, just inches away, I’ve tried ricocheting the chomps I’ve looked up countless guides and videos and none of them have problems but for some odd reason mine won’t work

    • EarthenWarrior

      Nvm it somehow broke itself…

  • Well my mom has dirty mind

    We were looking at costumes for me and I showed her Oshawott. She thought Oshawott’s schalchop was a d*ck at first

      Wait it’s not?

    Smh I’m so unoriginal 🙄 I was gonna submit something for the Halloween art thing and I was like “omg Yas I’ll do a Pokémon haunted house” and literally the first result on google is what I had in mind…

    What is a good place for Pokémon to haunt?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Pokéjungle rn because it’s kind of a ghost town

      • Soggy Auggy

        I’m calling the police I was gonna just do a simple Gligar/Gliscor since it’s flying type and looks like a vampire but sure enough that’s been done too

        • Lazy terror

          Uh not really, I’ve seen may Gliscors done as a gargoyle but never as a vampire 😮

      • EarthenWarrior

        Everyone is either playing odyssey or just not frequently around these parts until stuff picks up

        As for me I have two kingdoms 100%ed and will be working on a big one later today

      • Yeah I keep sitting here waiting for a new article or for a big discussion to start… I feel lonely, a little aggravated (not at y’all just personal stress, so the usual) and tired

    Ngl Clangourous Soulblaze is my least favorite Z-Move because it’s pretty much as long as the legendary Z-Moves and not even half as impressive looking

    • EarthenWarrior

      Granted they could’ve gave the war dance a little more oomph and the sound wave I can’t tell if it’s coming from the mouth or just emitting from its body

    • I can’t remember what it looks like it’s been so long now

  • Ooo I have a good question for y’all

    What is something that is unpopular (or rarely talked of) thing you want in USUM

    Personally you know how in the Anime a Darknium Z was guarded by a Wild Totem Raticate. I think that Z-Crystals like Flynium Z, and Icenium Z are too easy to get and I think they should have Wild Totems protecting them (without a trial or captain)

    And another note on another game I’d like to add. In GO I’d like particular Pokémon to have a third move that I’ll call (overworld moves) that help get certain Spiecies like Rain Dance to increase Water encounters, Flash to summon Bug types, Sunny Day to attract fire, ect. Then they could make an easier way to get Castform’s forms

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      I had the exact same idea while playing SM! In fact I actually expected a totem glalie or something to take over when I reached for the icium z and was disappointed when I just picked it up.

      • Yeah I want unique totems like that

        Like maybe Totem Alolan Sandslash/Ninetails varying on version

        Toucannon for Flynium

        Oranguru for Psychium

        I mean we sorta got it with Kommo-o, but they referenced it at one time may have had a captain

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Sitting down. But yeah each Z-Crystal should’ve had a totem, even without a trial.

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      I know the ship has probably sailed on this one but I want new mega evolutions :C

    • Ultron

      For Mt. Lanakilia to actually be explorable because that part was probably the lamest sh*t in the game. No post game part where can go down into the depths of it?

      • Mt.Lanakila definitely is the saddest VR in Pokémon (its a straight path with only three small areas)

        Maybe in USUM they will add after the cave instead there’s a cave in and you go through the whole mountain till you reach the path outside from another entrance (and after the cave will return and it will be optional to go through)

    • MenacingCascoon

      A better achievement system honestly. We only had like 15 achievements in SM. I want to have like a medal system in B2W2 with all these achievements. Ive only seen one other person talk about this.

  • Prashanth Raghuram

    Does the halloween art have to be a ghost poke? Cause honestly I’m terrified of Guzzlord

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Don’t get hopes up, but we shall see what this comes to. It’ll likely be interesting regardless.

        Who knows, but I can imagine if it’s something of interest this coming Thursday will give us some info

  • MenacingCascoon

    I cant believe it. You guys voted for Kahili??
    Well she’s been eliminated. Why though? I liked Kahili she was very cool, and her battle was really hard. Her and toucannon RBF is just amazing. I can’t believe this.

  • MenacingCascoon
    • MenacingCascoon

      Seeing how USUM will be out in November. I guess we will be rushed through USUM. No Post game probably either.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Alternatively, we’re going to see new Pokémon revealed before their Gen as they usually were every Gen before V and you may be jumping to an unlikely conclusion considering PokeSwitch will probably be 2019 and USUM is being worked on by other members of GameFreak but idk

        • MenacingCascoon

          Yea I guess I didnt mean rushed, Lets be real we’ll all be done with USUM by 2018 anyway

          • I have doubts we’ll be 100% done

            It took me alot longer than usual to play SuMo than usual (Then again this time, I’m putting my foot down and if my brother won’t play I will leave him. As because of that I wasn’t done till after bank came for it)

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      Is this USUM related or switch related?

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Unknown. All we know is it exists.

        • That’s mean at least 806, Pokémon are confirmed to exist

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Well…..yeah. But we don’t know if it’s a Pokemon for USUM or the Switch game

          • Either way I’m happy that we know another one is, yet to be discovered. Can’t wait till its revealed

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I’d say there are two possibilities. It’s either a new mythical for this gen or it’s a new mythical for next gen. I’m not sure they’d hold off that long on merch for new normal Pokemon. It’s likely a mythical either way

      • pajamawolfie

        If it’s a new mythical for this gen, someone will datamine it in USUM. Because how can we get it if its model is not in the data?

        • BanzaiFerret

          DLC? that’s been my theory for a while. hold back a few mythical pokemon and patch em in later, that way the inevitable datamines can’t lay out all the cool secrets at once.

          • pajamawolfie

            Will all the patches and DLC make the games unplayable when people buy them used 10 years from now?

    • Murder Freak

      So probably the magearna of gen 8

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So let’s say the mystery Pokemon is gen 8. that basically means Pokemon Switch is coming out next year.If it’s not a gen 8 Pokemon then we still get a new Pokemon.I think either way we’ll being getting a win win situation

    • All situations with a new Pokémon are a win-win situation

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        SOME people could argue against that tho haha

      • pajamawolfie

        Not if I don’t wanna buy a Switch.

        I mean, I still would anyway, but I’d complain about it. Switch games are $20 more expensive than 3DS games here in the US.

        • Ultron

          The amount of content they’ll be able to add though because of the switch’s power will be well worth the $20 upcharge.

          • pajamawolfie

            Maybe if you already *have* a Switch.

            Okay, but if a Switch cost $100 more than a brand-new New 3DS XL, and I want to get both games, that’s $140 MORE than I’d pay otherwise. Not to mention I already have a couple of 2DS, and I could get a brand new one of those (with Mario Kart 8 preinstalled) for $80.

          • Ultron

            Well the hope is that they stop with two versions. I don’t think that format would translate well on the Switch. And yes, it is nice if you already have a switch, but I got mine by saving up money and also selling my Wii U for it. It’s still cheaper than the other consoles.

            As for it being expensive for families, that’s true, but that’s just the price of gaming. It’s never been a cheap hobby, even through the 2DS. 2DS are like $90-$100 give or take (if you’re not getting a 2DS XL, and most kids I know have a 3DS and do not want the 2DS model in the slightest), plus $40, so that’s around $140 for one child for just one game. Yeah, it’s still like half the price, but I’m sure Nintendo is aware of that and I’m sure they’re probably working on alternatives. Anyway you spin it, I think this is a good move for the franchise. Creativity should not be held back by the limited power of the 3DS just so it’s more affordable for kids. It has to be allowed to grow and evolve.

          • pajamawolfie

            Do we truly play Pokemon for the creativity? Truly? It’s been the same game for about 20 years. It just looks prettier and prettier, and some of the game mechanics have improved (battling system, internet connectivity).

            I’d *say* this might hurt their bottom line, but with Pokemon, anything is like printing money, so whatever.

            I still don’t like it, and talking about it is starting to make me mad. So I’m going to stop for now.

            They’ll probably release some sort of Switch mini or something before then.

        • I know that I live here too. My only wonder is will Pokémon actually stoop to the level of upping their price (Has it ever changed from $40 dollars?)

    • Murder Freak

      No it’s not… you know that. Magearna merch was avaible early 2015, so Pokemon Switch is still probably 2019

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Wut…..that’s wrong…..Magearna wasn’t revealed until February 2016. The merch may have been hinted at via a “?”, but the actual merch was never fully revealed until Megearna was officially shown in February

  • Murder Freak
    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Yikes……………

    • I kind of want to see this because my crush watches it, but I also don’t cause I hate horror (and wiki listed it as horror)

      Tell me more about this show or explain to me some more about it

      • Murder Freak

        It’s great. Not my fav show, but I love it. The first season really made me like the protagonists, it was exciting, cool and pretty funny at moments. Its a really good, interesting and worth watching show. The second season is alright, but I only watched few episodes to this moment. I don’t want to spoil the plot, I will say that it gets somewhat horror-like at moments, but not too much. I’m not a horror guy myself and it wasn’t that bad. My recomendation for you is to watch few episodes (3 to 5) you’ll either love it or really not. Then you’ll decide if you want to watch it all.

        • I’ll probably when at my grandma’s tomorrow will try it and see for myself

          • Murder Freak

            You have Netflix at your grandma’s?

          • Yeah my brother is the one who actually has it (yeah I have an odd family life, as my grandma’s house is where I go after school everyday and my mom picks me up everyday to go home) but since he practically lives their I just deem its my Grandma’s

  • Browserboom

    Im wondering if the Pokemon switch game will come out next year or 2019?

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I’d still say it’s a 50/50 chance, but I suppose it depends on what that mystery Pokemon is. We shall see. That said I think if it is coming out next year we’ll hear about it early next year.

      • Browserboom

        So 2/21?

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Where you get that date from? I mean it could be, but the date is really not what matters. Either way I’d say winter 2018

          • Browserboom

            Pokemon day’s around that time right?

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Pokemon day is the 27th. But yeah I suppose they could do it that day. They announced SM on Pokemon day so it wouldn’t surprise me if they made that day their new traditional game announcement day.

          • Browserboom

            Maybe like the first USUM/Poken trailer

      • If it is 2019 though I have one problem, they said USUM is the last 3ds Pokémon game so that would mean either we are getting a spin off game on switch first (PMD: GtI was the same way so) or We are going to go through even worse than the Drought of 15

        • Prashanth Raghuram

          Not just Gti but blue rescue team on the ds too… Every other gen of pmd is ahead a console.

    • Murder Freak

      I’d say 2019 for sure. If there needed to be a year in between ORAS and Sun/Moon there needs to be one in between USUM and Pokemon Switch!

      • Browserboom

        Yeah its two games then a break

      • But I wonder what will be in between the two for next year

        • Browserboom

          They said they’re done with mainline pokemon games on 3DS, maybe a different kind of game?

  • Browserboom

    Look up Ultra Instinct Shaggy, its great

    • Sunniera

      I have not gotten the email yet.

    • Sunniera

      Yo, I have not gotten the email. Do you need me to type it out again?

  • Well even if this is BS (totally is) at least if it happens to be true. Then at least I get two days for USUM

  • MK126

    What is this talk of a new pokemon being revealed? There’s too much to scroll through to see where it all started

  • Jacob Marion

    I’m totally all for this, I’d love more Alolan Forms! The more, the better, I say! 😀 And these sound great! Poison/Fairy sounds really interesting for the Oddish line, and I love Parasect, other than it’s Bug/Grass typing, so a Bug/Ghost typing sounds awesome to me! I hope these are true, though I’d say that they’re probably false. But, then again, USUM is the first games to add new Pokemon between games like this so we never know. 🙂
