  • Murder Freak

    First comment
    Cool merch
    And also do we know anything about when USUM will be compatible with Pokemon Bank?

    • Govnah

      probably first day and you want a medal for being first?

      • Sunny

        I want a bronze for being 3rd.

        • Browserboom

          Ribbon for fourth

          • EarthenWarrior

            Crude certificate on loose leaf for fifth

      • Murder Freak

        Yes

      • Can I get a participation trophy for writing the post? 🌚

        • Govnah

          yes

  • Browserboom

    Ultra Instinct Shaggy, best video ever

  • EarthenWarrior

    I’m sick of these quiet days, my brain is going to mush from lack of intellectual conversation and stimulation (granted that’s from a number of things)
    But other than that I need to wait for the websites to update the Mario odyssey guides for later levels to help find the last stragglers

    • Browserboom

      Me too

    • Hate to say it, and I’m sure you already know, but once USUM releases we’re going to have quite the Pokémon news drought for a good couple of months. Earliest until January/February 2018.

      • Murder Freak

        I mean, we’re getting interviews about Pokemon Switch every now and then

      • EarthenWarrior

        *Whimpers*

  • Lazy terror

    That white rowlett thingy. Totally adorable

    • EarthenWarrior

      Itsa snowball

      • EarthenWarrior

        Wait no, it’s a pastry they make for New Years often accompanied with tangerines

  • MenacingCascoon

    I got my Shiny Silvally downloaded. Pretty much done with SM. I guess I could do a quick check to see if I have all the megastones. they NEED to make bank allow items. It’s going to e so frustrating trading over all the SM exclusive items or just items in general.
    + Pokemon merch looks amazing, I might just make a room in my house pokemon only. They all look so great.

  • Browserboom

    I hope more switch games come out around the start of 2018

  • Murder Freak
  • ShinyXatu

    Now I’m actually done with Odyssey (in terms of the final level), but that secret ending still remains. Who knows if I’m insane enough to do that though. Basically, it’ll be coasting through from now on. For anyone in post-game, I really do recommend that you push a little more because it’s worth seeing through…

    • EarthenWarrior

      I’m working my way up I just finished cap and cascade kingdom 100% and I’m almost finished with Sand Kingdom with only 3 moons left and 6 coins

      414 moons in total

      • ShinyXatu

        Sounds good! My method will be going from the kingdoms with the smallest total Moon count and working up to the largest. I won’t say which those are because it’s a spoiler. I’m at 531 moons now, and I don’t know if I’ll play any more today (although I’ll probably make time). It’s so hard not to talk about the game in its entirety, I can’t wait until I can!

        • EarthenWarrior

          Siiiiiigh I feel like I’m dead last in the odyssey race
          Some kingdoms I barely touched and only have as much as 12 moons

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I don’t even have the game so you’re not. Also why is it a race? As long as you’re enjoying it does it matter?

          • EarthenWarrior

            How would you feel that everyone is ahead of you progress wise

          • Daedardus

            I try to live in a bubble so I don’t care as long as I’m having fun. F the rest.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Couldn’t really care less when it comes to games, it’s my own enjoyment and experience of the game that makes it worthwhile to me.

      • Daedardus

        Wait, how do you 100% those so easily? I already had trouble finding the remaining 50%…

    • Browserboom

      Do you have to 100% it to get secret ending?

      • ShinyXatu

        Yeah, apparently you have to max out your Moon count, which is a ridiculous task.

  • Unseelie Fairy

    When GameFreak makes you do a HM puzzle and it’s not even a TM at the end https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5f50e302fed0c7627887dd2b5caa5a4d50df61885d8af97331d1747d3c72b5ba.gif

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Ice Puzzles are the worst imo.

    • Murder Freak

      That gif is my reaction to that gif

  • Ultron

    Yay, more adorable rowlet merch and more hideous popplio merch. They seriously don’t know what to do with that thing. Bitch looks like a kite with its arms spread out like that.

    *****And that Moon figurine with the starters looks like it has a cameltoe lmaooooo

  • ShinyXatu

    Time to acknowledge the article! I really like that Lapras plush, its well designed and seems pretty large. I’d own that any day!

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Even though that Pyukumuku plush probably doesn’t make its’ awesome sound and doesn’t puke out its’ innards I still want it.
    I think the Shiny Silvally event starts Friday here so I’ll have to wait until at least the following week.

  • So, today was eventful (at least, in terms of Persona 5)

    • zess

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7ab4c2679406e52bfd8b20b166fdb7710904c2b00aee207c0de9723a7ba65af3.gif unless you count playing Pokemon and Mario Odyssey productive in which case… I’ve done quite a bit 😋

      • I spent almost all my time this weekend playing Persona 5

        • zess

          I hear nothing but good things about that game. When I’m done with Mario and the Evil Within 2 I might pick it up.

          • I’m on my fourth run and have over 300 hours on the game XD

          • zess

            That’s why I’m waiting to get it I need to make sure I have time to devote to a game like that.

  • TheHipster
  • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

    The white Rowlet is so precious 0_0

  • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

    Also I’m adding a Piloswine to my Black 2 team, any nickname suggestions?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Manny

      • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

        I would use this, but it’s very similar to my Conkeldurr’s name

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Tusk, Icevory, Trunkless, Snout, Stomp, Shaggy, Mammothpig.

          • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

            Thanks

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I know they are terrible. Snuffleupagus/Snuffy is the only other I can think of rn.

          • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

            I ultimately decided on Icevory as the name, but they all are fine nicknames

  • Govnah

  • Ithsme?

    Whew, short weekend. I really wish I would’ve had more time to dedicate to Odyssey, since it’s sooooo amazing, but unfortunately it had to take the back burner this weekend to school projects and stress. I’m only at the 4th kingdom, but I have about 90 moons, and I’m having a blast. What a great year the Switch is having.

    • ShinyXatu

      You have a lot of incredible things coming your way! I hope you will be able to appreciate it as much as I have this weekend. Throughout my adventure I felt like a little kid again…I actually laughed, nearly cried, and gasped more than once. The last time I did that was with, well, Breath of the Wild. For a while I wondered, how can Nintendo possibly expand on Super Mario Galaxy in a meaningful way? It must be impossible! But in my opinion, the impossible is what Nintendo does now in a post-2017 world. Now I’m REALLY stumped as to what they can do next…but they will do it! I look forward to hearing your final thoughts……….

  • Hi my friends! I have returned! Just another time consuming eventful day

    Watching Halloween movies, carving my pumpkins, getting my Oshawott costume together (I did nothing, I need to go out tomorrow on my mom’s birthday to make it), finally got my Carmel Apple cookies done (They are burnt, but delicious), making my bed and thinking of new Pokémon ideas

    I think my Dew Pokémon will draw some interest because its going to have an interesting ability and set up (Its a 3 stage one and its going to be tough)

    • ShinyXatu

      Happy to hear you’re getting in the spirit of the holiday! Honestly I haven’t taken Halloween seriously for quite a while, even though it’s an awesome holiday. I’ll definitely watch Nightmare Before Christmas on Halloween night, which has been a tradition of mine for a long time.

      • Same, it’s such a good movie and the fact it combines two of the most popular holidays (Many would qualify it as a Halloween movie, but I deem it both Halloween and Christmas)

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I tend to watch it around christmas since it’s usually on TV then. Last year I saw it in the cinema for the first time (though it was in converted 3D). It’s one of my favourite movies.

        • ShinyXatu

          Good taste. It’s on Netflix (which I use frequently these days), so I’m planning on watching it there. Something about this movie brings me back to my childhood!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I’ll have to see if it’s on Netflix here, though I might just wait until christmas. It’s such a shining example of a good holiday movie and it works for 2.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I’ll probably watch a halloween movie, if Hocus Pocus, Casper, The Addams Family or Ghostbusters are on I’ll watch those, if not I’ll probably watch Frankenweenie. I did watch The Black Cauldron yesterday which kind of fits. I doubt I’ll watch an actual horror movie.

  • ShinyXatu

    I just finished Stranger Things 2, concluding what will go down as THE most legendary pop culture weekend of my lifetime, by FAR. I’ll be honest, it took a while for it to pick up steam for me (giving me more of a reason to rewatch it next year), but it definitely delivered by the end. Made me feel just as warm, if not warmer, than the first season. Bring on Stranger Things 3, and Super Mario Odyssey 2, and everything. As always, I have to be Mr. Dramatic and say that both of these things combined have made me feel like life has so much more possibility and creativity than I thought…and it gives me real hope that I was missing. It feels like the end of a good dream. Thank you Nintendo, thank you Duffer Brothers, and good night to all. Back to my regularly scheduled programming. And USUM hype, of course.

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      Warning: spoilers from stranger things 2 I loved Eleven’s character development. Even though the Kali episode was a bit cliche X-men, i teared up in the El and Mike reunion scene :’) And the scene where she closed the gate in the finale was pure epic.

    • MK126

      ST2 definitely had a slow start but really picked up after episode 4ish. I must say that the later episodes really tugged at my heart strings lol

      • ShinyXatu

        Episode 6 was where I really remember laughing out loud and enjoying it a lot. The next three episodes kept up the pace really well.

  • Unseelie Fairy
    • EarthenWarrior

      My bitch job doesn’t give me Friday’s anymore and I already have my chips and refreshments stored in my closet for the big day,

      I just had a thought what if USUM doesn’t let us trade Pokemon until the end?

      • Unseelie Fairy

        I honestly doubt that, no Pokémon game has done that before. Don’t think you have much to worry about! :p

        I might buy some small snacks, some nuts and fruits to be good to myself, my trust water battle, and a crap ton of ice cream to cry into about how sad I am staying up all night I play ;p

      • I doubt that would happen (I already hate Colloseum for that as I want to battle LG v.s. Emerald, but need to beat Colloseum to be able two cause I don’t have the stupid adapter or a second Game boy)

    • Murder Freak

      And I’m going on a week long vacation in a beach side hotel in Turkey the day after USUM comes out

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Kk

        • Murder Freak

          You forgot the third one

    • Sunny

      I am flying back home on Saturday, so I most likely won’t get to play until late Saturday. But I pretty much have a week long vacation aside from one interview that I am confirmed to have.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        At least you’ll get back home! That’s something to be excited about 😁

    • ShinyXatu

      I have the Friday before that off…very convenient.

  • EarthenWarrior

    20 moons and 18 purple coins then I never have to come back to the wooded kingdom ever again

  • Murder Freak

    Do you think USUM will have any surprise mons/forms?

    • Lazy terror

      I’d say no because they don’t do that in third versions but seeing how we’re getting new UB’s maybe we’ll get another one by surprise

  • MenacingCascoon

    18th place goes to Mina. Which is very surprising. I could have swore you guys loved Mina. Oh well shes gone now. She didnt really have a role in SM, so that’s ok with me. I honestly dont even know her character. She lad those lazy eyes, so I thought she was the lazy but strong/smart archetype, but didnt even have a totem and she was always out and about. I dont even know why she gave the fairium Z crystal. Weird character

    Vote for Least favorite 3 as usual!

    • Star did, not sure about anyone else, but I sorta liked her

    • Sunny

      The days when I have been correct in my predictions have long passed.

    • Ultron

      Can’t say I really like anything about her

  • TheReece25

    Wondering if that line in her shorts was necessary 😶
    Those models are unbelievably accurate tho 😍
    I almost want them.. and I Never buy this stuff

    • Ultron

      Omg I know! It looks like she’s got a cameltoe because of it

  • EarthenWarrior

    THAT STUPID MASTER KOOPA RACE IN WOODED HOW THE FREAKING HECK CAN ANYBODY GET THAT DIVE JUMP BOUNCE TO WORK IVE DONE IT A BILLION TIMES AND FAILED EVERY TIME

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Failures are the stepping stones on the way to victory

    • Lazy terror

      Practice, you’ll eventually achieve it

    • Govnah

      you just suck

      • TheReece25

        Cuphead? I watched a lot of that game on YouTube.. I like the art.. but it just seems repetitive

        • Daedardus

          I don’t know how you can assume cuphead when it’s clearly Mario.

          • TheReece25

            Talking to Govnah and their avi

  • TheReece25

    Made a $500 bonus with my job yesterday, and getting new phone today. Pixel 2 😇
    Yaay

    • MenacingCascoon

      Good Job! Hard work pays off. Literally

      • TheReece25

        I knooww.. I had to make 50 deliveries in 2 days! Insane! Thank God! 😫😅

  • TheReece25

    I doubt it.. but.. any other PostMates here? I’d love to chat

    • Sunny

      I have a friend who is a PostMate.

    • Sunny

      Are you that friend?

  • Unseelie Fairy
    • Ultron

      Makes me wonder if Necrozma will be introduced early in the game or not until the shrine of sun and moon part. We never saw Giratina till the climax

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I’m surprised they even bothered releasing this trailer now. We’ll have a bigger one coming later this week so it seems odd. I feel like this would have been better served next week or the week of release

    • Sunny

      Well we may have learned how we encounter ordinary Legendaries in Ultra Space in this trailer so that is something new that is shown in this trailer. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e4b5e6b6e5ec80c67c1bad3fb64e8efbd7db536fb74ec8197ed69261bfc966a5.png

    • Lazy terror

      I wouldn’t mind the game be filled with cutscenes if they’re going to look that good :000

    • Murder Freak

      Datzit?

  • SpooktralSeraph

    So I said I’d come back for the next trailer and it was C O O L A F
    Also all story heavy mons in Tapu Bulu? Interesting… maybe my favorite Tapu might get some time in the spotlight this time ;3

    • SpooktralSeraph

      *and tapu bulu

    • DarkySG

      yessss tapu bulu is my favorite too aaa

      • SpooktralSeraph

        He just looks cool as hell. It used to be Fini but it’s personality … ewww

    • Fedex

      wait was tapu bulu in that trailer??

      • SpooktralSeraph

        No look above at the merch

    • Ultron

      Ewww tapu bulu is straight shite

      • Unseelie Fairy

        That’s a load of bulushite

        • Ultron

          Sthapppp

  • SpooktralSeraph

    It’s good to be back… until it ends up not being good

  • SpooktralSeraph
    • pajamawolfie

      Lillie looks like she’s taking a picture

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Surprised there aint a USUM team builder website yet, games are out in less than 3 weeks.

    • Murder Freak

      We don’t know all catchable mons yet, that’s the reason. I just use the SunMoon one, but I’ll be only using gen 7 mons

  • Govnah

    I cleared my cache 3 times now and Disqus refuses to work on google chrome

    • Ultron

      Good, we don’t want you here

      • Murder Freak

        That’s a joke, right?

        • Ultron

          Lol… NO

          (Yes)

  • EarthenWarrior

    Yo yo yo look what old Earthen snagged when he was returning stuff https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b9a0cf87e670020b4141109b487fb32fe2ce7451e1ee7c8bb9663935aa4057af.jpg

    And it’s the best since it helps find purple coins

    • Govnah

      Mine is better

      • EarthenWarrior

        How is it better, do you not see how effing dapper he is?

        • Govnah

          mine is dapper and a has a extra tooth

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’m calling shenanigans

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Hope that glass of milk spills over the Switch

      Yeah im salty i dont have Odyssey yet, fight me!

      • EarthenWarrior

        ….that’s a candle

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Hope it melts and then spills over the Switch

          • EarthenWarrior

            ….which isn’t remotely near the switch?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Ffs just play along

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Now you’re just milking it

          • EarthenWarrior

            Make me

  • Murder Freak

    Been asked before but I’m bored
    Make names for the USUM UB Trio

    • EarthenWarrior

      I’ve got Kombustion, Cellblox and Gnoxio

    • Murder Freak

      Explown (Explode+Clown)
      Tribeuild (Tribe + Build)
      Toxocial (Toxic + Social)

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Some crappy made on the spot ones

      UB Burst – Lullahan
      UB Assembly – Mortress
      UB Adhesive – Noxtic

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Lullahan – ‘Luls’ + ‘Lull’ + ‘Dullahan’

        Mortress – ‘More’ + ‘Fortress’, hints of ‘Mortar’

        Noxtic – ‘Noxious’ + shortening of ‘Toxic’, sounds out ‘Stick’

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ok this Wedding Bowser is totally worth it
    It locates the nearest active purple coins even ones inside different areas

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Congrats!

    • ShinyXatu

      Well done, it looks awesome!

    • Ultron

      It’s glorious

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Congratulations on your golden turkey-phoenix..

    • SpooktralSeraph

      But its not thanksgiving yet…

      • Canadian Thanksgiving already past.

        • SpooktralSeraph

          True true

  • Murder Freak

    As tommorow is Halloween, how many of you are going Trick or Treating and how what are your costumes?

    • Sunny

      I am attending a university. I don’t really have the time to trick or treat, but I am going to wear my costume the entire day. I am going as a Team Rocket Grunt.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I’m too old for trick-or-treating, and it’s a Tuesday so it’ll just be soft drinks and scary movies for me and friends hopefully ☺

    • I’m going to 0 houses to get 0 candy in my awesome costume: Human in PJs.

    • I am and I finally have decided I’m going as an Oshawott

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Handing out candy. It’d probably be weird for a 24 year old to go out trick or treating

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Do any of you have nicknames yet for your USUM teams? I’m just throwing around some because I’m not even sure what mons I’m using.

    • Not many ideas, but I think I’ll name Rockruff, Dusty (just fits)

      Maybe Mantine, Wave rider or Phil

      Hmm if I use Shiinotic probably will be named Luna or another female name (yeah I want a female one)

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Deci – Trash Archer/Artemis
      Inci – Plagg/Enyo
      Prima – Aquarius/Farrah
      Lycandusk – Reus/Callisto or Coco
      Butterfree – Mason/Jasmine or Jushmine
      Ledian – Spot/Tikki
      Dugtrio – Geb/Rolaskatox
      Meganium – Kim or Kim Chi
      Typhlosion – Vulcan or Hestia
      Feraligatr – Sam or Sobek II

    • EarthenWarrior

      I never nickname main series teams
      But if I were to nickname em

      Incineroar Diablo
      Lycanroc Logan Steppenwolf Wolfgang
      Crabombinable Crabmeat
      Mudsdale BoJack
      Golisopod Razor
      Kommo-o Uther (ten points for the ref)

      • pajamawolfie

        Pendragon

        gimme my points

      • MenacingCascoon

        Wasnt this your same team in SM?

        • Murder Freak

          He repeats

    • UnburdenedLegume

      I dont do nicknames unless its a nuzlocke

    • Murder Freak

      I’m not sure bout any of them but I have few ideas:
      Decidueye: Owliver (if male), Queen (if female),Deadshot, Sniper, Vigilante (or Vigil), Owleye
      Lycanroc Dusk: Pumpkin Spice, Autumn, Ginger, Merida (if female)
      Alolan Persian will be for sure Joey (after my cat that Looks like AloPersian)
      Inky the Shiny Mimikyu is already named and waiting in my box
      The rest of the team is unsure but I have some options:
      Togedemaru (Spiky, Bowler, Pika the Hedgehog)
      Alolan Sandslash (Iceslush, Subzero)
      Alolan Golem (Beard (if female, Blackbeard (if male))
      Kommo-o (Jingle, Scale King, Drarmor)

    • pajamawolfie

      If I go Litten, I’ll probably name him “Man-Cat”, unless I want a girl, then I’ll name it something cutesy so it’ll be “Snuggly” the Incineroar or something.

      Whenever I choose Rowlet, it will be named “Hooters” no discussion.

      • Murder Freak

        Woman-Cat wouldn’t work?

        • pajamawolfie

          I don’t know why, but that sounds weird.

    • MenacingCascoon

      My character
      Zakai
      Torracat- Zuko
      Lurantis- Allure
      Lycanroc- Okamiwa (if I can nickname it)
      Passimian- Messi
      Alola Golem- Nappa
      Zygarde 10%- Koena (if Zygarde is there)
      Alola Dugtrio- Dee&Deb&Daf

      • Murder Freak

        I understand hating Incineroar, but not evolving Torracat seems. just cruel and unnatural

        • MenacingCascoon

          Evolving it would be a crime against humanity. Im saving it. Trust me

          • Murder Freak

            If you hate Inci, choose a diffrent starter. Littens fate is to stand up and become a wrestler. Don’t be the Parent that doesn’t let it change the way it wants to.

          • MenacingCascoon

            If I hate Inci then I wont let it be Inci. I think you forget that Im the one in charge in the pokemon-human relationship. It’s not whether they want to be evolved are not. I stay the leader

          • Murder Freak

            So you are the Parent that doesn’t let its kid change the way it wants to. K.

          • MenacingCascoon

            It doesnt want to evolve. Not in my story anyway

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Or you could just not minimise their comment if it bugs you

          Do I like Inci? Yes. Do I care that Casc is keeping it at a stage they prefer? Not really. Power to them really, I’m too basic to not evolve a level up mon XD

  • joker901

    So the absence of background in Mewtwo screenshot pretty much confirms that we are gonna encounter legends in UsUm like we did in Oras. Pretty lame…

    • Ultron

      Yeah it’s a bummer

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It’s almost exactly the same background.

  • Ultron

    Excited to see all the spooky artwork tomorrow 😀

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Lele > Koko > Fini > Bulu

    Facts

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Can confirm that this is the correct order of typings from good to bad:
    1 – Electric
    2 – Dark
    3 – Water
    4 – Steel
    5 – Ghost
    6 – Poison
    7 – Ground
    8 – Bug
    9 – Normal
    10 – Ice
    11 – Dragon
    12 – Fairy
    13 – Fighting
    14 – Psychic
    15 – Rock
    16 – Flying
    17 – Grass
    18 – Fire

    • Govnah

      Um sir. Fire is clearly 17

      • UnburdenedLegume

        At least you agree that it should be at the bottom

        • Govnah

          🙂

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Have nothing against them in terms of design (altho Torkoal is a mistake)

          • Govnah

            Every Pokémon is a mistake

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Ghost is a bit too low

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Why do you hate Fire?

  • Murder Freak

    What if we got Four starters each gen? Fire, Water, Grass and Electric

    • UnburdenedLegume

      That should acc be a thing because the four elements

      • Murder Freak

        Then it would be Fire, Water, pure Flying and Ground

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Fire, water, grass and electric are the elemental typings in Pokemon tho?

          • Murder Freak

            Not really. There is No thing like elemental typings in Pokemon, there are just Starter Types (Electric is one of them in Gen 1)

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Dragon types are immune to those four because they are elemental powers? Literally says so on Bulbapedia and PokeWiki

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Not official sources 👀

    • Lazy terror

      That’d be cool but they had to change the types advantages a little bit for it to work

      • Murder Freak

        Fire burns Grass
        Grass turns Energy into… its Energy
        Electric passed through water
        Water puts Fire out

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Electric doesn’t fit into a triangle

      Ur L8 M8, but 8/8 that news’s still Gr8 even tho it might be Clickb8

  • Fedex

    So in Hoenn I’m following my dream to become a top class co-ordinator and I’ve realised something.
    Contests are really good and more exiciting in ORAS.
    Heck ORAS are bloody amazing save the lack of BF possibly the best games in the series.
    How do people find time to dislike ORAS?

    • I don’t dislike it, I just don’t find as replayable as other games (Never liked the selection of the first few areas. Giving primarily Water or Grass types meaning unless you don’t mind over lap your limited to a small pool of teammates)

      • Oh and going off Cas. the level curve is bad

        I beat Brawly’s Makuhita with mine and I literally just caught and it won against his in its first battle with just 2 hits

        • Fedex

          That’s true in terms of difficulty but gen 6 games were never the most challenging something I’ve accepted!

      • Fedex

        Well I’d probably say same about Sinnoh although I expect Sinnoh remakes to fix that and they’ll be amazing.
        Well in ORAS you get the dex nav? Which creates great diversity and realism in catching.
        Surely there’s so much more to judge a game on than your early game perception?? 🙂

        • Meh I just found that the beginning of the game is the most crucial part cause you build your legacy and need the right partners early to gain appeal

          The middle is the fun part when you get to bond and play with your Pokémon

          The end is when your team starts to or gets serious facing the threat of the evil team and you must train hard and keep your Pokémon in shape to keep up with the pace

          • Fedex

            To be fair you do get a variety just before you reach Rustboro such as
            Tailow, Poochyena, Zigzagoon, Wurmple, Ralts and Slakoth. Pelipper is also part flying.
            Being a tropical region there naturally will be plenty of water types!
            As you hit Mauville/Lavaridge areas you get more variety.
            Honestly I feel Sinnoh would be worse and maybe BW Unova imo.
            Hoenn also has dex nav which helps get rare egg moves or abilities etc

    • MenacingCascoon

      I think I disliked ORAS initially because I hyped up battle frontier to the point it was the only thing I was expecting and since it didnt deliver + the fact that it was the easiest game to the point where it was boring, I strongly disliked ORAS.

      Now after realizing the amazing megas it introduced. The beautiful graphics. The amazng contests. And the convenience of everything that ORAS brought. I’ve to really adore the games. It’s too bad that it took me so long to understand.

      • Fedex

        Absolutely! The no BF made me so unhappy but I eventually got over it even tho it’s like the best post game feature.
        Then again the vastness of Hoenn/ORAS, the subtle details, the well polished region,delta episode and all the refinements to a great game as well as crazy features like soaring and dex nav make these games unbelievably good.
        And now I’m tryna realise that there’s life after the BF which makes ORAS more fun!

    • Murder Freak

      ORAS was fine and that’s all I can say about it.

    • Armaggedon16

      I honestly don’t have a specific reason. I just found ORAS to be boring and just unexciting for some reason. and it was honestly the only Pokemon game I forced myself to finish.

      • Fedex

        Aside from difficulty and lack of BF, I think the games strong points are the region, the focus on adventure and the fun aspect like the dex nav and detail the game has.
        I guess we all have preferences!

    • TheReece25

      I’ve always wished they developed that more in games.. to be a main focus if u want

      • Fedex

        Yeah I love contests like in the anime.
        To be fair ORAS did expand them greatly. We have Zinnia playing a huge role and the contests themselves are far better and more graphical with animations and special moves etc
        I believe ORAS has more rivals too!

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Yo if they are acc revealing the first gen 8 mon in early 2018 are they actually going through with a 2018 release too? I 100% expected 2019 for gen 8

    • Murder Freak

      *Sigh*
      Magearna merch was shown early 2015, I’m sure Pokemon Switch is still 2019

    • Auragar

      We don’t even know for a fact that they he showing a gen 8 Mon it anyways no it is 2019 or beyond.

  • Sweet Tooth

    Ooo since I’ve not been here long and feel like asking a question. What’s everyone’s favorite to least favorite type?

    • Murder Freak

      Fav is Electric
      I like Ice, Fairy, Dragon and Psychic a lot
      That’s all I know

      • Funny how Ice even though not being my favorite, is the only type that I don’t dislike any of (weird)

        Also unpopular thought Glalie and Dewgong are my favorites of the type

        • Murder Freak

          Glalie is alright, but it totally should be Ice/Dark

          • Debatable, its looks could make it Dark, but it also works pure Ice type too (something about it being with makes me love it)

    • Sweet Tooth

      Mine has to be

      1. Grass
      2. Fairy
      3. Electric
      4. Ice
      5. Ground
      6. Ghost
      7. Water
      8. Dark
      9. Steel
      10. Fire
      11. Fighting
      12. Rock
      13. Dragon
      14. Flying
      15. Poison
      16. Normal
      17. Bug
      18. Psychic

    • MenacingCascoon

      Wow time to bust out the long lists, to keep it from getting vertically annoying I will use go left to right (first is best; last is worst)
      Electric>Dragon>Fairy>Flying>Psychic>Ghost>Steel>Ice>Water>Fire>Poison>Dark>Fighting>
      Bug>Grass>Rock>Normal>Ground

      So I made some changes since last time (idk if you guys remember)
      First off, I really cannot decide if I like Electric types or Dragon types more, it’s always a constant internal battle.
      I moved Rock types from last to 15th. I realized rock types have amazing moves, and when they have a cool pokemon it really is cool. So they are no longer my least favorites.
      I moved fighting from 17th to 13th because I love fighting type moves. And I just how powerful they are.
      I moved Ground type to my least favorite type because well I was going through the list of ground types and realized, barely anything stuck out to me. Literally they were all below average or avrage. And they only have EQ as the only cool move. All in all I dont like ground types. They just suck looks wise. Theyre all boring. Ground type worst type

    • Armaggedon16

      Ice,Dark,Water, Electric,Fire are the best.
      Dragon, Fighting,Steel, Flying are good.
      Rest are meh
      Fairy,Rock are bad

    • Hello again my friend

      1. Water
      2. Grass
      3. Normal
      4. Dark
      5. Electric
      6. Rock
      7. Ice
      8. Steel
      9. Bug
      10. Ground
      11. Fairy
      12. Ghost
      13. Poison
      14. Fighting
      15. Fire
      16. Psychic
      17. Flying
      18. Dragon

  • EarthenWarrior

    And finally 500 moons……still 499 to go…

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Getting 999 of those things sounds as pointless as 999 Korok seeds in BoTW. Hope the reward isn’t a shiny golden turd as well…

  • zess
    • TheReece25

      Sweet

      • zess

        Yep i almost don’t want to open them.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      My local games store has them (and the botw ones too) on stock again, just when i spent a ton of money on AC Origins and collectibles ffs i hate my life sometimes

  • TheReece25

    Does anyone else follow a team formula?
    I Always use my Togetic, which makes team building hard, seeing as many of my faves are also weak to ice.
    Then, water, fire, grass.. last 2 whatever.
    I definitely got this from Ash..
    Growing up I was in love with Any main character, so it hasn’t changed u suppose.

    • Murder Freak

      Do you evolve the Togetic? I personally think Togekiss is better

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Raichu is better than Pikachu in terms of power but its uglier design wise

        • Unseelie Fairy
        • TheReece25

          Togetic is basically fairy Pikachu.. both evolve same way.. evos in 2nd gen. Ash.. Misty.. one is just fast other defensive. .and actually useable lol.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Togekiss has a much better movepool than Raichu, mad coverage.

          • TheReece25

            Yeah.. but Togekiss learns a lot of useful moves I admit… unlike Raichu .. which doesn’t learn any new after evo I think.

            Praying for Moonblast move tutor in UsUm for Togetic..
            I’d die from joy 😜

            Togekiss might move up a rank smogon. Not that u
            I use that much

          • Murder Freak

            Togetic is from the same gen as its prevo tho and has an evo from gen 4

          • TheReece25

            That’s what I meant. And the gen 4 thing is just a bonus 😉
            Also it gave 3 in its evo line. Like Pikachu
            First evo based on its like towards you.. then stone.. for both pokemon

        • Murder Freak

          If you’re talkin bout designs
          Pichu < Raichu < Pikachu < Alolan Raichu

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Waitwaitwaitwaiwat
            Did you just imply pikachu has a better design than Pichu?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Pichu is the most adorable thing ever not named Teddiursa

          • SpooktralSeraph

            That is absolutely not true but Pichu is cute af regardless
            Second cutest baby pokemon

        • Lazy terror

          But also Raichu is still cuter :3

          • Lazy terror

            *alo

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I disagree, I prefer both Raichu.

      • TheReece25

        Nope. Eviolite. It’s beaten many Togekiss.. all in fact. But they have different uses.

        • Murder Freak

          Togetic may be more useful, I just really prefer Togekiss’s design tho.

          • TheReece25

            No.. I mean.. if u want to attack hard.. Togekiss is the way to go. But uve never heard anyone prefer Togekiss appearance 😅
            To each their own

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Butting in here but I can’t prefer either of their appearances because they’re really different and I love both :0

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Ehh i always have a Electric type in my team, because i am emotionally attached to it but other than not really

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I usually have the triangle of Grass/Fire/Water. Typically not on purpose, but it happens a lot. It’s just a a handy coverage triangle.

    • Lazy terror

      Always have a flying and ghost type in my team no matter what. Idk why it just feels right 😡

      • TheReece25

        Does that ever make completing your team hard? Once again.. flying don’t like ice

        • Lazy terror

          Not at all, flying types are easy to find, the problem is ghost which are rarer

          • TheReece25

            I mean weakness wise. I feel like having more than 3 Pokemon with same weakness is not so good.

          • Lazy terror

            Oh, I never worry about weakness even though I almost always regret not worrying about them 😡

          • TheReece25

            Yasss. . And Stones lol.

    • Always have a Water type, other than that not really

  • Murder Freak

    Anyone here watches Tomska? I really love his sketches lately, they’re pretty hilarious

  • SpooktralSeraph

    Nani?

    • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

      Omae Wa Mou Shindeiru

      • SpooktralSeraph

        We should reverse these comments

  • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

    I have an idea for what I want my team to be in US. So I’m thinking about having a few new Pokémon (that I haven’t used before) on my team, such as Incineroar and Araquanid. However, the rest of my team members will consist of some of the team I had for the PJ anime thing. So this is my team so far now:
    -Incineroar
    -Araquanid
    -Dedenne
    -Metagross
    -Flygon

    And not sure about the last one. Maybe a special attacker I like in the old or new Alola Dex? Or a special Pokémon from Gen 7.

    • TheReece25

      Dedenne cuz its cute?

      • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

        Yep
        And also good ol’ times of wrecking Uber mons with it

        • TheReece25

          How??
          Online or in game?

          • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

            On Showdown, but basically it was 3 things/steps:
            1. Nuzzle
            2. Super Fang
            3. Thunderbolt or Volt Switch outta there
            It helped with taking care of Rayquazas

          • TheReece25

            That’s the set I was gonna use before settling on Togetic

          • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

            Nice lol

    • Hmm. You could try a rock type like Tyranitar on your team if you don’t mind overlap

  • SpooktralSeraph

    So it’s been a while and I’m sleepy, sup gais?

    • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

      Wait are you back briefly?

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Until the next catastrophe :3

        • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

          I see. But anyways, not too much, I’m about to fight Black Kyurem in Black 2.

          • SpooktralSeraph

            I seeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

          • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

            I also got myself a Mamoswine for the team too

    • Yay! Your back!

      • SpooktralSeraph

        *dabs*

  • UnburdenedLegume

    I may not have Odyssey yet, but that theme song is so damn catchy lol.

    • zess

      Yeah it’s so upbeat and makes me feel like nothing can go wrong.

  • SpooktralSeraph

    Macargo is a garbage Pokemon. The stupid pile of garbage can’t OHKO a Charizard ten levels below it with a 4x effective rock slide

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Speak for yourself Magcargo saved my ass against Lance 👀

      • SpooktralSeraph

        That was exactly who he screwed against. It was Xatu and Dewgong who saved me

    • Lazy terror

      *competitively wise

      It’s great in everything else, yes, even in beauty

      • SpooktralSeraph

        I mean ingame
        This stupid thing struggled against lance…… Like there was not one time where this trash sack came through for me

        • Lazy terror

          One said it’s great against Lance

          The other says it’s trash against Lance

          Who should I trust? x_x

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Hmm

          • Lazy terror

            Who is Hmm and where I can find him

            :p

    What do y’all want?

  • Murder Freak

    How did I just today find out that Araquanid is Lana’s Signature?

    • SpooktralSeraph

      BAD BOI
      GO IN A CORNER AND THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU DID

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Not his fault it’s in an obscure optional battle 👀

        • SpooktralSeraph

          Oh that isn’t his fault
          What is his fault is not knowing everything about Araquanid

        • Lazy terror

          Wait you can battle Lana?…

          • Murder Freak

            After battling her sisters

          • Lazy terror

            ….

            Lana has sisters????

    Cowabunga
    Classification: The Wave Catcher Pokemon

    Base Stat Total: 513
    Pokedex Entry: Cowabunga are said to have impeccable balance that not even the harshest waves can disrupt. This allows them to perform a myriad of different tricks while riding their boards across the water. The horns of a Cowabunga are perfectly symmetrical and are the assumed cause of their incredible balance. Surfers frequently make fake horns resembling that of a Cowabunga and wear then into contests hoping that the horns make them them win.

    Wave Shredder: All Water attacks made by the user become physical. Additionally, using more water moves in a row allows the user a higher chance to crit while the chance is lowered if the user doesn’t use them in a row.

    First fakemon in a while yeehaw

    • Murder Freak

      Was this mon made just for the pun in the name lol?

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Yes and no
        I wanted a surfer
        I wanted a water buffalo Pokemon
        Everything here kinda just aligned perfectly

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Opinions?
      On the mon? Its ability? Its lore?

    • I like it I want to imagine a buffalo on a surf board

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Yep that’s basically what it issss

    • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

      Seraph you’ve sold me on this just by the name

    Read the error section of the episode

    • Murder Freak

      Unfeazant is Pro-Rocket?

    • SpooktralSeraph

      You’re supposed to throw out your trash so the animators did just that

      • I wondered… Is Unfeazant missing because it had bird stuff to do that was more important than its trauner?

          It’s…. not the best flying type.. I mean.. even ash swapped it out 😅

          • Lazy terror

            But…

            It’s so beautiful ;-; and it helped me a lot ( even though its moveset is thrash)

          • TheReece25

            Lol ok

    • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

      Bigger question, why isn’t Unfezant Ground/Flying? It’s basically dirt…

  • Unseelie Fairy

    If you were to do a ditype run, what two types would you use?

    Rule: same number of both types (includes dual types)

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Bug/Ghost

      • Unseelie Fairy

        What mons 👀

        • SpooktralSeraph

          Araquanid
          Vikavolt
          Scizor
          Decidueye

      Lilligant
      Chandelure

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Fairy/Poison

      And it’d be something like

      Prima/Salazzle
      Florges/Roserade
      Togekiss/Nidoqueen

    • TheReece25

      Fairy/Flying… I guess… definitely fairy.. hmm.. electric?

      Magmortar
      Hawlucha
      Arcanine
      Skarmory
      Infernape

    • I would have to say… Water and ice

      (If we are talking about Gen.7 games then team would be)
      Samurott/Weavile
      Politoed/Glalie
      If allowed to use a Water/Ice type and another Ice then Walrein/Alolan Sandslash

      If not then, Mantine and Alolan Sandslash

    • Murder Freak

      Electric and Psychic
      Alolan Raichu
      Ampharos
      Oranguru

        Fire/Dark and No Inci?

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Some 👏 people 👏 don’t 👏 like 👏 Inci 👏 or 👏 prefer 👏 other 👏 mons 👏 over 👏 it 👏

          • Murder Freak

            I 🤚 still ✋️ Can’t 🖐 find 🖖 that 👋🏻 Emoji

        • Lazy terror

          Cuz everyone has to enjoy Inci

          EVERYONE

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I have Houndoom.

          • Murder Freak

            That makes sense

        • Ultron

          Why use Incini when Houndoom can do everything it does, but better and can mega evolve

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Wut

            Ones a special sweeper and the other is a physical tank

            I thought we were on the same team sis 🐍

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Tank is a bit of a stretch

          • Unseelie Fairy

            In game sis

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Ohhhhhhh
            Yeah than I guess it gets that

          • Unseelie Fairy

            It’s the bulkiest Alola starter and has the highest physical attack

            All three alola starters are pretty good at not being outshined tbh besides Deci

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Mate you can’t say Deci gets outshined if Incineroar is literally a worse arcanine
            I’m just leaving it at that

          • Unseelie Fairy

            You need to stop bringing competitive into in game discussion m8 in an attempt to validate your opinions

            It was a cheeky jab at Deci being in a game with two other physical Grass/Ghosts, not a serious comment. 👏

          • SpooktralSeraph

            I knoooooooooooooow
            I just gotta say it
            Its like an impulse
            …plus you bring it up quite a bit too so….

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Consider it payback for your irrational Inci hate boned of ’16 👀

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Ultron’s right

    • Ultron

      Dark/Bug

  • TheReece25

    Ash Alola Team:
    Pikachu
    Decidueye (fastest form)
    Torracat (fastest form)
    Lycanroc
    Minior (flying)
    Kommo-o (obvi.. maybe too obvi)

    Calling it now. Screenshot.
    He somehow pulled a fast team in the slowest gen

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Pikachu
      Dartrix
      Incineroar
      Lycandusk
      Passimian
      Golisopod

      • TheReece25

        I could never see ash using a Pokemon that switches out every touch

        • UnburdenedLegume

          He’s had Pokemon before who spontaneously jump out their balls in the middle of a battle or other situations lol.

          • TheReece25

            Way different

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Its the reverse of what you’re describing. And besides, i specifically remember his Oshawott pussying out of a few battles

    • joker901

      We know from the very fisrt leak scan that Ash will have Incineroar with Rowlet together, so Decidueye has to wait…

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I think it’ll be a team full of Pokémon with exclusive Z-Moves, so

      Pikachu (1, 000, 000 Volt Thunderbolt)
      Decidueye (Sinister Arrow Raid)
      Lycandusk (Splintered Stormshards)
      Incineroar (Malicious Moonsault)
      ??? (???)
      Kommo-o (Clangourous Soulblaze)

      • TheReece25

        I almost feel he won’t have a 6th Pokemon again..
        I felt the same about z moves too…
        Maybe he will use a past gen poke like he has in past… or gen 8 😶

      • Murder Freak

        Solgaleo maybeeeeeee

        • SpooktralSeraph

          Lets be honest it won’t actually be his

    • TheReece25

      Another good choice would be Alolan Sandslash.. but…. that would be 4 Pokemon weak to ground. And new ash is too smart for that.

      • Murder Freak

        No he’s Not

        • TheReece25

          I believe he is.
          I guarantee he won’t.
          Even if he catches it.. they will pull a goodra … send to professor after a while. just to show it ain’t a main poke.

          • He used 4 weak to Electric types in Kalos…

          • TheReece25

            No… he didnt

          • Yes he… Noivern’s weak to Electric right? Because then at least 3 are Hawlucha, Greninja and Talonflame

          • Murder Freak

            Greninja
            Talonflame
            Hawlucha
            Noivern

    • Murder Freak

      Yeah sure
      Ash’s Litten is almost for sure gonna evolve into an Inci (the leak and its character)
      And Ash’s Rowlet is almost for sure gonna not evolve (even tho both Inci and Deci would be cool)
      So the final team that’s probably gonna happen:
      Ash-Pikachu
      Incineroar
      Rowlet (this gens mon that should have fully Evolved but didn’t)
      LycanDusk
      Golisopod
      Maybe Kommo-o

      • TheReece25

        Goli won’t happen.. and oh yeah.. the leak. I’ll update.

    • Ultron

      Who says he has to use all Alola mons though? He used Phanpy in Hoenn and Aipom in Sinnoh. It’s more likely that they’re all alola, but I’d prefer if they threw a curveball and spiced up his team

      • TheReece25

        Yes. I said that below too

      • And Gligar in Sinnoh, but Ash did catch Phanpy in Johto and Aipom in Hoenn (granted Aipom isn’t from Hoenn, but oh well)

        • Ultron

          Oh, good point. Forgot about Gligar

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Aipom did evolve in Sinnoh though.

        • Ultron

          Yeah, after he traded it for Buizel :/ (mistake, imo)

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Aipom was there to eventually evolve into Ambipom, and Phanpy was in Battle Frontier, where old Pokemon coming back wasn’t surprising.

        • Ultron

          That is true. Aipom was to kind of promote those cross gen evos. Wonder if that could mean he’ll get an alolan form, though the only one he could probably use would be Sandshrew

  • Hmm guys I need help with a certain Pokémon in my region

    I’m starting dislike its name (and maybe it pre-evo’s name too), but it’s like the Rockruff of my region

    It’s a Coyote Pokémon that’s pure dark type at first, but if evolved in a cave or desert area it becomes Dark/Ground, Cold area’s result in Dark/Ice and in any other area it stays dark type

    They are Coykit and Coyowler. Think the names need to go? (Coyowler just gets weird to say after while)

    • Murder Freak

      Are Ice and Ground just forms of Coyowler? If Yes then:

      • Murder Freak

        Posted too Early

      • Murder Freak

        If Yes then:
        Coyomean
        Cruelote

        • SpooktralSeraph

          Wha….

      • Yes they are just forms of Coyowler

        • Murder Freak

          Yeah, then I think Coyomean for the 1st stage and Cruelote for the evo

    • EarthenWarrior

      How about Howlyote?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Cryote – Cryogenic + Coyote for Ice, Cry + Coyote for the others.

  • Unseelie Fairy

    What would be your dream team from all the Pokémon you remember using in the main series? Mine would be

    Babylon the Salazzle (Sun) – Fast special attacker, perfect Sp. Attack IVs. Can’t go anywhere without a Poison-type.

    Joules the Electivire (Platinum) – Strong physical attacker with amazing coverage, would be an amazing addition.

    Garret the Glalie (Mega, AS) – Super late addition to my AS team, but an absolute murderer. Mega or not, this guy’s always got my back.

    Viri the Lilligant (W2) – Sleep Powder. Quiver Dance. Giga Drain. Slay queen slay.

    Grape the Azumarill (AS Water Mono) – Huge Power Azumarill. Nuff said.

    Sasha the AloPersian (Another Sun run) – Killed everyone and tanked everything. An absolute legend.

    Venus the Clefable (Red) – Tank for days, is actually Lusamine’s Clefable’s grandmother

    • EarthenWarrior

      Mine is a tad hard to do without rotating
      Rhyperior from Platnium: “Earthen Fury”
      Emboar from Black: “Blaze of Glory”
      Heracross from Silver: “Herculean Champion”
      Pangoro from X: “Brave Berserker”
      Golisopod from Sun: “Killer of the deep”
      Aerodactyl from Red: “Pterror of the skies”

    • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

      This seems really fun actually:
      Enfuego the Arcanine (B2)
      Ruby the Starmie (Red)
      Sol the Heliolisk (X)
      Muss L Mann the Conkeldurr (B2)
      Ceros the Heracross (HG)
      Axe this the Haxorus (B)

      • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

        Oh and some stories about them:
        Enfuego: One of the Pokémon I’m currently using in my B2 run, Enfuego was a Pokémon I fought so hard to stick with me till level 45. And after all the training and evolving, Enfuego became a powerful, versatile ally on my team, incinerating everything on sight with Flare Blitz and Heat Wave.

        Ruby: I just want say, Surf/Ice Beam/Psychic/Recover worked PERFECTLY with this starfish mon. It dished out diverse attacks while also healing up itself without the need of wasting Potions. Thank God Starmie had Recover back in Gen 1

        Sol: Before I discuss about Sol, I just realized half of this team consists of Pokémon which evolve through stones lol. Anyway, Sol’s Parabolic Charge really helps it stay alive at the best times, and it was just always funny and satisfying one-shotting Lysandre’s Gyardos with Sol.

        Muss L Mann: Perhaps the second GOAT of a Pokémon I’ve ever had, Muss was, quite literally, the definition of OPM in the Pokémon World. Nothing would survive an Adamant Hammer Arm from this thing.

        Ceros: Quite a powerful and elusive attacker on my Johto Team, Ceros peppered every opponent he faced with an unresisted moveset. Also I just love Heracross’s design so much 😀

        Axe This: Because there’s nothing cooler than having a Dragon with axes as tusks on your team.

    • Splash the Samurott (W2)- One of the first starters I can say has pulled all the way through and stuck it out to the end with Me

      Marty the Togedemaru (Moon)- This thing took leaps and bounds and fought great everywhere. And I say is the all star of that game

      Heracross (White)- Wow seriously wow was this the all-star of the Post-game as it was my first non Unovan catch (was 10 levels higher than my next highest) and could just about smash anything in its wake. (Current location unknown as I lost my White version)

      Magnet the Magnezone (also W2)- This thing took out a team of 4 80’s level Legendaries (I already beat 2 others) single handedly at level 75, it held its own in most battles including being the ace that beat Marlon.

      Glice the Glalie (AS)- another top tier Post game member holding its own in most battles with being able to hit 3 sheer colds in a row to take on all 3 Hoenn starters

      Sylveon (X)- My most pampered team member and my first legit lvl.100 (I don’t count my Empoleon from when I was 7) and it was by far my most over leveled member in a Pokémon game thus far being level 80 by the time of Diantha

      Yep these are my most powerful memorable 6 ever

        N. O. 💔😂

        • Murder Freak

          He rescued that Wimpod for a reason

          • TheReece25

            It’s a friend Pokemon. he would have caught that. He won’t. He befriends many and not catch.. even riolu

          • And *Gulp, holding back the rage while still getting red and sweating* Shiny Phantump

          • TheReece25

            Lol. wow. He’s growing.. but still such a n00b at times.

    • TheReece25

      If a Pokemon is revealed from Gen 8
      I think that will be #6.
      He always catches the movie reveal Pokemon
      Phanpy
      Aimpom
      Buizel

      • Aipom I don’t think was an early reveal (unless it revealed it the Pokémon 2000 mini movie)

        • TheReece25

          O maybe not

      • Ultron

        This is slightly incorrect. He never caught Munchlax, which debuted during Destiny Deoxys.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      What app is this

      • TheReece25

        Pokeinfo

        I have Android, dunno if on iPhone.
        I plan all my teams

    • zess

      What’s the name of this app?

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Holy hell an app that uses the seventh gen models!

      • TheReece25

        Glad y’all like it as much as I do.

  • Soggy Auggy

    Sometimes I lie awake at night tormented by how dirty Gamefreak did me by creating Oricorio but giving it an awful moveset and stats

    • Unseelie Fairy

      They should’ve given it actual attacks from each of its type

      All forms but Baile would immediately benefit from Heat Wave

      • Soggy Auggy

        Sweetie don’t even get me started on Flying types that got rigged to be awful…

        Talonflame (which btw should have been named Scorchawk) was the only good “regional first route bird” that was actually good until the Smogon community screeched because of Gale Wings and now it’s a flying roast turkey

        • Lazy terror

          Isn’t Staraptor another good “regional first route bird” that is actually good?

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Bl..
            THE BL CURSE

          • Lazy terror

            But if it’s in BL it means that is above UU

            So that’s something..

          • SpooktralSeraph

            The BL CURSE

          • Soggy Auggy

            Tru

        • Ultron

          Staraptor is actually pretty good though

          • Soggy Auggy

            I’ll give it a shot when Sinnoh remakes come around 😅

          • Ultron

            You should! It’s pretty awesome despite the tired typing that I wish would go the fu*k away forever

          • Murder Freak

            It should be Dark or Fighting

          • Soggy Auggy

            I agree, Normal/Flying is really tired

    • Lazy terror

      Ikr!

      Hopefully move tutors will give our dancing bird the power it deserves

    • Ultron

      I remember being so excited to use it on my team…and then its moveset leaked. And I was really looking forward to MINIor evolving considering its name perfectly pointed toward an evolution.

      • Soggy Auggy

        Minior is the reason I’m bald tbh it snatched my wig I love everything about it… I wish I just had a bit more love in the stats department but I love cleaning house with Shell Smash

        • Ultron

          I mean I like it, but I really wanted it to evolve :/

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It’s actually worse than the way they did Rotom forms, at least the got a decent move of the type they changed to.

  • Murder Freak

    Imagine if Ash caught Exeggute that evolved into an Alolan Exeggutor

    • Soggy Auggy

      Imagine if the anime got replaced by Pokémon Origins

      • TheReece25

        I pray they do one for each gen!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I’d like Mallow to get it, I think she’d be loving to its’ derpy faces.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Yo anybody see this https://youtu.be/najBTCS43p0

    • Soggy Auggy

      Oh thanks earthen I was gonna try figure out a way to link everyone to this… POORLY NARRARATED TRAILER

    • I saw it… It underwhelmed me in a way that we just fight Mewtwo in an ORAS style

      • Soggy Auggy

        I know like it would kill them to make Cerulean Cave in 3D… they could just make an overworld cave and have a generic cave background for the battle but? I guess it’s easier to just re-do the Hoopa Holes

    • Auragar

      Yeah, it’s not a big deal though. I’m waiting for the real trailer that will be coming later this week with Mimikyu’s z-move and Rainbow Rocket info.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Still hoping they aren’t shiny locked.

    • Phantom S

      Would be marvelous if they are using the graphic engine of Pokémon Switch to create these trailers.

  • SpooktralSeraph

    I won’t even deny this, Delphox’s design upsets me. I kinda wish it was ghost type and had a more…. witchy look…. like a way darker color scheme and a little hat to go along with it. So like it looked LEGITIMATELY sinister

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I feel like it’s not because of Mismagius as well as the secondary type triangle.

    • Soggy Auggy

      Idk the massive ear fur… ruined it for me. Kalos is the only region where I cringe at each starter… I think the most tolerable is Chesnaught

      • Murder Freak

        What’s wrong with Greninja?

        • Soggy Auggy

          I got really turned off by the “Charizard effect”. It got a lot of attention from Gamefreak and an unecessary new form. It’s a good Pokémon

          • Murder Freak

            They should just go all the way and give Kalos starters megas

        • Ultron

          Everything

      • SpooktralSeraph

        I always liked Chesnaught but Delphox upsets me because it had SO MUCH POTENTIAL

      • Ultron

        Thank god someone has good taste. The kalos starters are fucking trash

        • Soggy Auggy

          I ADORE the base forms… they’re cute, they have personality, the second stages are all good too, but they really dropped the ball with the final forms

          • Ultron

            YES EXACTLY

          • Soggy Auggy

            Tbh here’s my plan to save these starters:

            Give Delphox a witch hat or something

            Make Chesnaughts armor match the colors of its pre-evolved forms instead of light colored wood out of nowhere and BRING BACK ITS SPINY EARS

            Greninja is fine how it is mostly just… maybe change the tongue scarf for bubbles? But the tongue is iconic so maybe change frogadier to have a more obvious tongue

          • Ultron

            And give Chesnaught elbows or something :I But yeah a huge part of its problem is the awful color scheme. Not even the shiny saves it though.

            Greninja’s tongue needs to go, but I also dislike its pointy ass head

            Delphox does need something else, but above all else it needs a better 3D model lol

          • Soggy Auggy

            True it’s just standing there like how about we give it a battle stance leaning forward, wand readied to cast a fire spell? Just sayin

          • Ultron

            Well they’re probably going to have to completely re-render all 3D models for the switch game, so here’s hoping

          • Soggy Auggy

            I have no faith in Gamefreak when it comes to them improving something they’ve previously established. Delphox is fated to forever stand still like it has a magic wand up its ass

    • TheReece25

      Lovvve Braixen tho. Her design was hard to top.

      • SpooktralSeraph

        They could have if they went all the way

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Ghost/Dark/Fighting isn’t a trio

      • SpooktralSeraph

        True but even disregarding that it should have been witchier

      • Ultron

        That makes me want to make some type trios:
        Fire/Steel/Rock
        Rock/Ice/Ground
        Flying/Ice/Fighting
        Steel/Fighting/Fairy
        Poison/Grass/Ground
        Electric/Water/Ground
        Fighting/Dark/Psychic

        Okay I’m done

    • Lazy terror

      Delphox had so much potential ;-;

      Atleast we still have Braixen

      • SpooktralSeraph

        But it upsets me! Delphox had the potential to be my favorite fire starter

        • Lazy terror

          Yeah -_-

          But you atleast still have Inci 😀

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Ahhahahah
            AHAHAHAHA
            AHAHHAH
            no

            I bet Typhlosion won’t be losing that spot anytime soon

          • Ultron

            You mean Infernape, right..?

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Nah I mean Typhlosion
            Infernape was always meh to me
            Like I never liked or hated it

          • Ultron

            :I
            :I
            :I
            ……
            ………
            ……………….

            Boi.

          • SpooktralSeraph

            What?

          • Lazy terror

            Typhlosion?

            TYPHLOSION?!?!?

            Let’s be honest

            It’s my favourite one too lol

  • TheReece25

    Spooky.. Ash team was. Actually balanced in Kalos. Minus goodra in the league. But that wasn’t a main team poke. I believe it was sent to prof solely to show that.

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Didn’t he have like literally three flying types?

      • Yes and its why I hate his Kalos team

        • SpooktralSeraph

          *shudders*

        • TheReece25

          I grew to like it.. I did at first too.. but this gen many on all fours. Especially if he catches Jangmo. He balanced it.

      • TheReece25

        Yes.. but type wise it was balanced. Dragon not weak to electric

    • Ultron

      I hate his Kalos team. Greninja and Hawlucha ruin it

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Woahwoahwoah BACK THE FUCC UP
        Greninja? Justified
        BUT DO NOT SHITT ON MY BOI HAWLUCHA

        • Murder Freak

          Itsa likea tha besta Flyinga typea!

          • SpooktralSeraph

            ……..ummm what? Why are you talking like that?

          • Murder Freak

            I’va alwaysa talkeda likea thata. Pleasa Ignora tha weirda capa witha eyesa anda thata mustacha.

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Please stop you’re lowering my life span from your sterotypical talk, nobody finds it funny

          • Murder Freak

            Other people cringing is funny to me

          • SpooktralSeraph

            From experience, that’s how you get people to not like you
            I’ve experienced it
            Save yourself

        • Ultron

          I hate Hawlucha probably more than Greninja. I think it’s so ugly and tiny.

          • Murder Freak

            That’s Midgetsist

          • Ultron

            Good, I hope so. I want to snap its stupid stubby legs

          • Murder Freak

            WTH

          • SpooktralSeraph

            But… he’s cool

          • Ultron

            It’s got a sweet typing. But a horrible shiny. I said it.

          • SpooktralSeraph

            *dies*

      • Murder Freak

        Hawlucha is awesome

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Greninja made that fraud team relevant lol. Talonflame, Noivern and Goodra were disasters who had a combined win total of like 4 or something.

        • SpooktralSeraph

          Hawlucha is great

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Yep i liked it a lot and it was a typical Ash mon.

          • TheReece25

            Minus that BS heat up league battle of his… like wtf. Frail af.. somehow turns into his Torterra

        • TheReece25

          Which is odd cuz they were all really powerful Competitive wise… minus noivern

          • TheReece25

            I spell so bad when excited lol

  • Murder Freak

    Every now and then I hope gen 8 is another cross gen evo Gen like Gen 4 or 2. But at the same time sometimes I wish for Gen 8 to be like Gen 5 and ”pull a BW” with 100+ new mons and mons from older gens only avaible post game…

    • Lazy terror

      I prefer a BW or something like that, I really want GF to surprise us with something new and interesting

    • Sunny

      Every now and then I hope gen 8 will have 9 Grass/Poison types like Gen 1.

  • Unseelie Fairy

    I hope that like XY we get a second set of starters again at some point but rather than old starters it’d be a Fighting/Psychic/Dark or Fighting/Fairy/Steel triangle

    • Soggy Auggy

      That would be a very new, fresh change for Gamefreak to implement in later titles!

      Don’t count on it 😂

    • Lazy terror

      Nah they’ll just make the starters have these types even if it won’t fit them too well

      Something something Delphox and Deci something

    • Murder Freak

      Only if they get some gimmick like Kanto Starters
      The closest thing we Might get is something like the Elemental Monkeys

  • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

    Tbh I actually thought (for the XY starters)that it was going to be Grass/Rock, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Fighting. I saw it as the Rock type would beat Fire, Psychic would beat Fighting, and Fighting would beat Rock. Plus it would be a pretty cool way for all 3 starters for balancing each other.

  • Soggy Auggy

    Speaking of things Gamefreak would never do because they hardly believe in retcons:

    Hoopa and Giratina are Ultra Beasts.

    Hoopa can freely create Ultra Wormholes with its rings, and Giratina is an invader from an Ultra World (the distortion world) that had to be sent back by Dialga, Palkia, and Arceus… or are they UBs too?

    Hire me Gamefreak I literally just wrote the plot twist for Gen 4 remakes

    • Monkeyfuzz

      That would mean an ultra beast was the god of Pokemon.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Tbf it wouldn’t matter much seeing as UBs are still Pokémon so it’s not changing Arceus from being a Pokémon creating Pokémon

        • Monkeyfuzz

          What I mean is Ultra Beasts are from another world, so Pokemon would be entirely unnatural in the Pokemon world wouldn’t they?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Not if Arceus created them in our world

            I mean the Christian God technically isn’t from earth

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Hm I guess so. I’d be fine with them doing this if they felt it necessary. I do wonder on what the future of UBs will be in future gens.

          • Soggy Auggy

            Probably swept under the rug like Primal Reversions, Megas, and probably Z-Moves

      • Murder Freak

        Makes sense

      • Soggy Auggy

        Tbh… if Arceus is still considered a god-like Pokémon, girl I’m atheist bc there’s nothing special about that deer caught in an ornate fence

    • Ultron

      But Giratina was banished to the distortion world, not from there. So that would mean Arceus would be an ultra beast because it had to create a portal to send Giratina there in the first place. But I think the clear distinction we have to make is that ultra beasts are from worlds other than pokemon-earth. Arceus and the creation trio are beyond that, not from anything really because they created it all. The only pokemon that I think could fit being an Ultra beast would be Deoxys because we don’t know where it’s from.

      • Soggy Auggy

        Damn you’re right… okay so easy fix Giratina is banished to Ultra Space… idk I really want them to bring back Ultra Beasts I love them

        • Ultron

          I think you could definitely make an argument for the Distortion World being an Ultra World/Ultra space. It fits the few characteristics that we know of it. Devoid of pokemon life save for the one species that inhabits it. But Giratina def is not an “ultra beast” I would think. Honestly though it gets hard to make distinctions in pokemon sometimes because often the mythology we rely on is limited.

          • Soggy Auggy

            And often poorly written?

          • Ultron

            Sometimes 😉 I think my main issue is that it needs to be expanded upon. They made a god pokemon and then locked it away within the game. The most we even know about it comes from a Wifi event from HGSS where we literally see it create a legendary pokemon

          • Soggy Auggy

            Ugh I forgot about that… I just hate Arceus…

      • Ultron

        But really the bottom line is that “Ultra Beast” is just a term to describe something scientists couldn’t classify and study, so they couldn’t understand them. When you get down to it, they’re really just pokemon. Not quite something separate from pokemon. They just have special characteristics.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Ash’s best team based on win percentage, this is factual so cant be argued with.

    Pikachu
    Snorlax
    Glalie
    Charizard
    Greninja
    Krookodile

    • Murder Freak

      There’s a fine video about that on YT

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Win percentage is bs when some of these Pokémon fought twice the battles others did whilst some of these Pokémon were rarely used yet successful in certain situations

      Consider yourself argued with

    • TheReece25

      No grass type.. his sceptile :,(

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Sceptile has a pretty average win percentage, esp in its pre-evolved stages

        • UnburdenedLegume

          But i agree that Sceptile should be in there, because well look at my avi

    • Ultron

      I never recall his glalie doing anything spectacular, so that’s definitely the most interesting member there

      • SpooktralSeraph

        GLAYLEE

        Also props to Krookodile for being the actual boi

        • Monkeyfuzz

          His Krookodile was probably the best of his Unova team in every way.

          • SpooktralSeraph

            It was the best of the majority of his teams tbh

          • UnburdenedLegume

            It was also the only Pokemon on his team in Unova. I dont consider the thrash he messed around with Pokemon

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I think he really underused Leavanny, then again I didn’t watch the whole of gen 5 anime because it was generally bad.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Literally not worth watching except for the Plasma arc and the Charizard reunion episode

      • UnburdenedLegume

        His Glalie has a 57% win percentage

        • Unseelie Fairy

          That’s easy to have when you were used like twice

          • Nope 4 times as Glalie and twice as snorunt which it is at 50-50 in Snorunt form and 75-25 as glalie

          • Unseelie Fairy

            C’mon English lessons!

          • Unseelie Fairy

            C’MON GRAMMAR LET’S GET GRAMOROUS

          • Soggy Auggy

            You’ll never be Grammar.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Well grammar have you ever watched the show?

          • Soggy Auggy

            Omg are you single 😂

            Edit: bye bye wig

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Yeah but I’m also not long out of single digits so I’m sorry 😔

          • Soggy Auggy

            Smh you’re right I can’t rob the cradle

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Can’t be pulling a Detox

          • Soggy Auggy

            Hold it… X

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I’M ROXXXY ANDREWS AND I’M HERE TO MAKE IT CLEAR

          • Soggy Auggy

            Okay I’m done here

          • Unseelie Fairy

            AS2 made me feel that way too

      • I just read up on it. It participated in all, but one watch of the Hoenn league and lost only once in a double knockout with a sceptile

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Glalie was pretty immense in the Hoenn League if i remember correctly, won all of its battles.

    • TheReece25
      • UnburdenedLegume

        Charizard covers the fighting weakness tho

    • TheReece25

      Poor glalie won’t see light of day again.. it’s “too ugly” I suppose.

    • TheReece25

      I just found a pic that says otherwise.. this can’t be right cuz gooses isn’t there at all.. it only lost once. This must be old. Plus infernape??

    • Chaos

      How long did it take to work this out?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I didnt make this

  • TheReece25

    Not to keep bringing this up but.. I guess rowlet won’t evolve.. :'(
    Due to that old leak I’m reminded of.. so sahd.. tho Dartrix is still really cute and full of personality yet battle ready. Dang anime…

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Ash’s real best team

    Oshawott
    Butterfree
    Noivern
    Torterra
    Boldore
    Palpitoad

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Replace Noivern with Unfezant and you’re correct

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Oshawank and Bye bye? 10/10 troll

    • Lazy terror

      You just crossed the fine line between best and overpowered af

    • TheReece25

      Ummm Torkoal… Helllllolollol

    • TheReece25

      Pikachu has been thrown in the garbage.. Ash has seen the light now. #AllStars

    • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

      The real team right here ladies and gentlemen.

  • TheReece25

    I think people have a hard time understanding Pokemon battles would be Wayy harder in real life.
    So many possibilities..
    It’s not just click.. think a minute.. click again..
    It’s intense..
    In reference to calling Ash weak.
    Honestly.. probably only 1 or two of us could ever clear the league if it were real.
    Playing a game 10 years proves nothing.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I’d totally be a co-ordinator instead, that looks way more interesting in the anime

    • I agree

    • pajamawolfie

      True. It’d have to be one hell of a simulator to train for that virtually.

      Wasn’t there one in that first season episode where they go to the Pokemon Academy and meet the kid who was hazed?

  • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

    I’m laughing so hard right now
    Like I get that an Adamant Conkeldurr would definitely one-shot Black Kyurem, but the main reason why I’m dying is because of all the build up and planning Ghetsis had for this very moment. Ghetsis went through 2 years of rebuilding Team Plasma, breaking out of prison, constructing a Pirate Ship with an ice cannon, finding Kyurem, finally getting the DNA Splicers, and finally fusing Zekrom to get 2/3 of the original dragon and freeze Unova,

    Only for a regular mon you would find in a Unovan cave to Plus Ultra the living thing out of Kyurem the instant after Ghetsis fused it.

    • Deerlia

      That’s pretty funny, actually, but you’re wrong about one part…
      I just played White 1, they fumbled ghetsis and he actually got away, that’s when it started studying kyurem, as N’s castle was collapsing.

      • Deerlia

        iirc, the shadow triad may have helped him with his escape, ironically only to contain him themselves in 2.

      • The Spooky Scurry Golurk

        Huh, I didn’t even remember that, and I just completed Black back in June and I should’ve remembered that.

        • Deerlia

          It was a small convo shortly after the post game begins, possibly in juniper’s lab or route 1…

  • Deerlia
    • EarthenWarrior

      If only they had Amiibos of all Mask forms
      i want a Goron and Deku Link (I hate how they made that ugly branch come out of his head when spinning)

      • Deerlia

        I have to say, the updates in MM3D to the models really made them pop, especially if you played the original.

        • EarthenWarrior

          true but still i loved seeing that big hat hat twirl

  • EarthenWarrior

    So what are you losers up to lately, its been too quiet lately
    i’m taking a Odyssey break out of severe wrist cramping

    • MenacingCascoon

      Well
      Hunting shiny Azelf which I’m gonna name Din
      Trying not to burn my room in fire because chemistry sucks
      Getting hyped for melee to be shipped to my room and to play the heck out of that. And that’s really it
      Also very angry at this poll. At this rate the eliminated person is gonna be… And I don’t want it to be…

      • EarthenWarrior

        in order
        Hmmmmmm i’m conflicted Din is power which is Azelf’s thing but Nayru is blue…
        Pyromania is its own reward
        Smash4 spoiled me, i’d tried playing Melee a few months ago and if you can’t do imputs or them fancy moves you will be ruined by those who can
        and that poll speaks only the truth, has Hau been booted yet i hate him with a deep searing passion

        • MenacingCascoon

          I gotta do Din. Din is power, but I know what you mean. Farore is courage, and courage is an emotion (Mespirit). And Nayru is wisdom and Uxie is literally wisdom as well.
          I need to start playing with it. I will just be playing with friends and no one knows those high tech tricks so its fun (with items too)
          And do you not participate in the polls? You should and so far Has has not been eliminated of the first 8… Yet. You don’t like Hau’s cheerful attitude? I love it it makes him fun.

          • EarthenWarrior

            wouldn’t Willpower be courage as well?
            but then again will to fight is power,

            Hau is too sweet innocent and good hearted BLLEEEEYUUCHHH that happy smiling face is just telling “Earthen please bash my face in with a rusty pipe”

            True, but courage is more an emotion than power.
            Lol, Well he isnt smiling in his USUM art, so maybe that’s a plus for you. I dont like it. I want cheery Hau.

          • EarthenWarrior

            i want caved in skull Hau

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Seeing Kahili eliminated made me very happy

          • MenacingCascoon

            I wish she wasn’t she was very cool ;~;

    • pajamawolfie

      I just watched “Drag Me To Hell”. Several people got dragged to hell.

      • EarthenWarrior

        tell Satan i won’t be able to come in for that 4 o clock workshop

        • pajamawolfie

          will do

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Was actually just playing Odyssey. Loving it a lot.

    Anyone here NOT interested in the Switch?

    I had a Wii U for Bayonetta 2 (the only game I had) but couldn’t afford Wiimotes for other games. I eventually sold it bc I didn’t use it for anything, since all my other games were on 3DS or Xbox 360 (including Bayonetta 1). I don’t really like Mario or care about Zelda or the other Nintendo exclusives. Well, Splatoon looked cool, but I didn’t have the money. Sold mine ages before Pokken came out.

    I played some Devil May Cry games, and a Tomb Raider game, and I still play Skyrim sometimes. Lollipop Chainsaw was the first Xbox game I got, and I’ve played that at least 3 times.

    I’m not knocking the Switch: I’ve never played it. Is there anyone else who just doesn’t care?

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Whoa……Just saw this on Bulbagarden. Has anyone really took a good look at the pre release download cards from a week or so ago? The ones with the Rainbow Rocket shots. In the US one it has the player riding on Lunala in Ultra Space while the UM one has the player riding on Solgaleo. So maybe we get both in these games!!!! Maybe once the version mascot gets taken by Necrozma the other one shows up some how and helps you get into Ultra Space to chase after!

    • Murder Freak

      So my theory was correct! Yeah!

  • Alexander0903

    Is there anyone with an extra ash cap Pikachu with its z crystal that doesn’t really want anything in return? I Don’t care which 1. Apparently tonight the code expired. I thought when it said until the 30th that meant it’s the last day to use it. But it ended up being the day it expires completely

  • SpooktralSeraph

    Kinda wish Darkrai were part ghost

  • DarkySG

    one new pokemon and one new ultra beast phew

    this ones based on different depictions of the devil, and it could be either dark-fairy or dark-dragon, i cant decide since it looks and feels very dragon and i can see it being the druddigon / drampa of the region, but the devil is a fallen angel so fairy typing makes sense too so let me knowww

    and the ultra beast, UB SIMULATION (electric-psychic) is based on virtual reality and where the human race is sort of heading, the leg is transparent or “fading away” to show that were so into virtual reality that were gonna stop being real and eventually live virtually, whatever that means ;’3

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/135e978aaec12ccbf0f51a3985afb0c8d9034342f683409a77fa1fe104a9bc7d.png

    hope you enjoy!

    • Ultron

      Those are pretty cool!

    • TheReece25

      I dont like how Pokemon has kids openly glorying traits of the devil. Sinister. But I’ll still play.. damn.. you pokemon

      • Murder Freak

        *cough* Girantina *cough*

        • EarthenWarrior

          Ehhhh that’s a hard stretch, Giratina’s only connection to the devil is just the concept of banishing to a horrible plane of existence
          But the real concept I sit being the master of a world where time does not flow or space having no laws aka antimatter

          • Murder Freak

            I heard that its design incorporates the 666

          • EarthenWarrior

            How…its a basalisk with some winged serpent

          • SpooktralSeraph

            6 wings, 6 … somethings .. it’s a stretch cause 666 isn’t the actual number of Satan

          • Unseelie Fairy

            It is the number of satan in popular culture tho

          • SpooktralSeraph

            True but still

          • Ultron

            I wouldnt say it’s a stretch. I’d just say giratina is as far as Pokémon is willing to go for something based on the devil. I mean arceus (god) banished it to a shadow realm because it was too violent, which is pretty similar. Giratina doesn’t steal souls and torture people though because arceus isn’t a benevolent god and doesn’t condemn people

    • Murder Freak

      I’d say Dark/Fairy or Dark/Dragon with a Fairy type Steelworker for the ability

  • SpooktralSeraph

    Happy Halloween y’all! Make sure to get some candy….

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well nobody cares about this but we’re most likely getting a new wow expansion announcement this Friday during Blizzcon
    And today is going to be the most lackluster Halloween ever, my brothers don’t wanna do anything nor anything is going on, and I have to work 8 hours where I’ll be helping shlubs get bags of candy and last minute decorations and supplies hoorah….
    Then to go home and keep working on odyssey finishing the wooded kingdom and starting the lake kingdom (ugh water levels are so tedious) and while I do that a Treehouse of horror marathon with my own bag of candeh

    So my odyssey journey is now over, now to go back and get all the moons

    • EarthenWarrior

      I have 500 and I’ve only scratched the surface

      • Govnah

        have u beaten the game atleast?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Yeah and I saw the very last final challenge it’s pretty tough

      • ShinyXatu

        I totally feel the same way. Whenever I turn on the game I’m surprised by what I find. I managed to break 600 last night, but it hasn’t been easy. It’s getting more and more difficult as time goes on, actually, because they’re so well hidden.

        • Govnah

          I found one in my shoe

        • EarthenWarrior

          Ughhhhh that’s it when I get home I’m busting through Wooded and then Lake and maybe even Metro

    Happy Halloween! I’m dressing as a hipster, which really isn’t that big of a change but just big enough to be a costume 😛

  • SpooktralSeraph

    Two fanmons yooooooo

  • Govnah
  • Murder Freak

    Just decided to make even more regional forms for my fakemon region, making the total number 38, 20 more than in Sun Moon, but I also have over 20 more fakemon than Sun Moon had new mons.
    I’ll make forms of:
    The Starter Lines
    Electavire
    Magmortar
    Rhyperior
    Dusknoir
    Weavile

    • Watch yourself with Weavile, you don’t want to tamper with something I cherish without 100% certainty that I could or may enjoy it

  • Prashanth Raghuram

    Assuming they are introducing new Alolan forms, sticking to gen 1 poke and not giving Alolan forms to poke with mega, the following can have Alolan forms:
    Butterfree
    Fearow
    Arbok
    Nidoking & Nidoqueen
    Clefable
    Wigglytuff
    Vileplume
    Parasect
    Venemoth
    Golduck
    Primeape
    Arcanine
    Poliwrath
    Machamp
    Victreebel
    Tentacruel
    Rapidash
    Farfetchd
    Dodrio
    Dewgong
    Cloyster
    Hypno
    Kingler
    Electrode
    Wheezing
    Seaking
    Starmie
    Mr. Mime
    Jynx
    Tauros
    Lapras
    Ditto
    Omastar
    Kabutops
    Dragonite

    Ive also excluded legendaries and pokemon with later evolutions

    Chose your top 6 to get the Alolan treatment

    • Murder Freak

      Many of these have been sadly confirmed not to have Alolan forms, by appearing in one of USUM trailers

      • Prashanth Raghuram

        Yeah ok let me edit those out too

        • Murder Freak

          Clefable for example *sigh*
          Alolan Clefable had so much potential

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Clefable didn’t have any more potential than any other Pokémon in Alola and seeing as it has a common suitable habitat I doubt it’ll ever get an Alolan form unless it’s such a good idea they bs it

          • EarthenWarrior

            Am I the only one who actually understands what it means to have an alolan form…

          • Unseelie Fairy

            No because you don’t even understand yourself

          • EarthenWarrior

            I understand myself plenty
            And I understand that the whole concept relies heavily on environmental influences causing invasive species of Pokemon to adapt and change based on differing habits
            You can’t deny this fact

          • Unseelie Fairy

            > Invasive

            If they were invasive they wouldn’t even need to adapt much

            Learn your terms

          • EarthenWarrior

            Learn my butt

          • I think I have a good understanding of it. But I have no problems with them even if some of their logic is off

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Weezing – Poison/Fire (smoke) or Flying/Normal (pure air)

      Rapidash – Flying/Fairy (from Flying/Normal Ponyta, goes from pegasus to pegasus unicorn)

      Farfetch’d – Fighting/Flying (uses a longer leek like a Fighters stave)

      Venomoth – Bug/Psychic (based on the elephant hawk moth)

      Dodrio – Ghost/Flying (dead as a duduo)

      • Prashanth Raghuram

        Woah, these are all great! Rapidash could be fire/fairy too, venomoth poison/psychic and Dodrio normal/ghost (especially considering how the dodo went extinct because it couldn’t fly)

      • EarthenWarrior

        Enough with the Fire/Fairy Rapidash just because it has a tiny unicorn horn doesn’t give it magically properties

        • Unseelie Fairy

          That’s the whole point of n alola form dumbass

          Different twist on the base design

          • EarthenWarrior

            But what would cause a newfound sense of fairiness it’s not just gonna happen because you say so

            (And so help me god if you’re only defense is Raichu don’t even bother replying)

          • Unseelie Fairy

            AloWak evolved because a weakness

            Rapidash could evolve due to a prevent predator with the Dark type, or they could bs ‘its ancestors had fairy qualities’ or it ‘always had an inner fairy’ (see: Exeggutor). AloForms are extremely easy to justify

          • Unseelie Fairy

            *prevalent

      • Venomoth I think could also become Bug/Ice (Based on a lunar moth) as when I think of lunar moth’s I think of the coldness of space

    • Primeape- Fighting/Ghost- Maybe a reference to its SuMo Pokedex entry where they may become so angry they die?

      Electrode- Electric/Steel- This could make it magnetic??? Idk

      Dragonite- Dragon/Water- *cough cough, the logical choice for all of you who think it should look more like Dragonair, but really it’s design already makes total sense cough*

      Omastar- Idk

      Kabutops- Probably Rock/Bug- it looks similar to a Bug, even though it’s design isn’t anything related to bug so

      Arcanine- I still like the Water type Arcanine idea

      • Murder Freak

        Arcanine is confirmed not to have a regional forms

  • Murder Freak

    Spooky Regional Form!
    Slavian Dusknoir
    Ghost/Steel
    A trainer from a far away regiom released left two Dusclops alone on a scrapyard in the Slavy region. Out of vengance, they absorbed many machine parts and Evolved into half-robot Dusknoirs that looked for its cruel trainer so they can devour him, but he escaped. Today when a Dusclops in Slavy evolves, it’s half-robot too and looking for that one cruel trainer.

    (Evolves from Dusclops when given Machine Parts (an item))

    • EarthenWarrior

      It pains me to say this
      Ghosts in the machine

      • Murder Freak

        what?

        • Unseelie Fairy

          It’s an anime reference

          • EarthenWarrior

            Book

          • Unseelie Fairy

            You read?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Hell no, I just knew that off hand

        • EarthenWarrior

          Its the title of a book by a British philosopher

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I’ve got a few issues with it

      – If it’s the Dusclops that did the actual adaption, it doesn’t make sense they stay the same.

      – idk, I know AkoRaichu is design over reason but something about this just doesn’t rub me the right way. Ghosts can pretty much go wherever they want, so why would they stay in the scrapyard when normal Dusknoir is resourceful enough to hunt someone down? Especially when their existing form isn’t hindered by corporeal machine parts. At least AloChu has fan theories and has the excuse of being the mascot’s evo

      – I don’t think it’s either subversive, referential, or expected enough to be justified. Like, Maro/Exegg/Rai are all references to something involving the Pokémon, whilst Ninetales and Persian reflect real life changes, whilst Sandslash is so subversive that it works. Idk, most of this is just my opinion

      • I kinda agree with you here, cause it sounds like a good base with many flaws

      • Murder Freak

        -Dusclops managed to evolve using Machine parts instead of Reaper Cloth
        -They needed to become more powerful to chase the trainer down, they needed to evolve and there wasn’t any Reaper Cloth near by
        -It’s kinda based on Haunted Animatronics/Robots and it seems fitting for me, as Dusclops is known for being hollow and devouring objects

        • Lazy terror

          But it was only these two Dusclops that managed to evolve by using the machine parts so I don’t find sensible how every other Dusclops now learns how to do it just because 😡

          And it doesn’t really fit with Dusclops’ lore or the Pkm at all just like Seraphu said

          • Murder Freak

            They weren’t any other Duskull/clops/noir in the Slavy region. They are all descendants of these two half-robot Dusknoir

          • Lazy terror

            But still, it doesn’t fit Dusclops at all

          • Murder Freak

            Dusclops have simple thoughts and can devour anything. They felt the need for vengence, so they absorbed Machine parts to get stronger and managed to evolve with them instead of a Reaper Cloth because there weren’t any Reaper Clothes near by.

    • SpooktralSeraph

      *shivering violently* d-dude…. that’s not… how dusknoir works… it drags people into the spirit world… ITS LITERALLY THE LAST FUCKING GHOST THAT WOULD EVER BECOME PART STEEL!! WHY WOULD SOMETHING THAT ESSENTIALLY CONNECTS ANOTHER REALITY GROUND ITSELF MORE IN A PHYSICAL FORM?!

      • Murder Freak

        Dusclops was affected just before evolving

        • SpooktralSeraph

          THATS NOT THE POINT ITS MEANT DRAG PEOPLE OUT OF THE LIVING WORLD NOT BE A FUCKING ROBOT

          • Murder Freak

            And Ninetails was meant to be a Fire type. It’s a regional form.

          • SpooktralSeraph

            It’s not the same thing though? You basically took the entire original concept of Dusknoir and threw it out the window. It’s not a revenant, it’s more along the lines of a reaper. Besides, a cyborg?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      To be honest, I think the idea might work better of it starts from Duskull. Imagine like a cool rusty mask instead of its skull mask

      • Murder Freak

        Yeah, but I’m doing only Gen 4 mons

        • Unseelie Fairy

          I think you should just let yourself play with rules a bit more, it’ll help when coming up with designs

          • Murder Freak

            Meh, there are enough mons in Gen 4. I prefer to follow patterns anyway.

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Yeah but the whole idea needs to be changed to match what dusknoir’s role and traits are

  • MenacingCascoon

    Happy Halloween everyone who celebrates it,
    I sure did get my ‘trick’
    Olivia was Eliminated ;~; I cant believe you guys voted her off. Especially since she was such a cool character. Not to mention she was bae. Best Rock type trainer. You guys are just so lame!

    • EarthenWarrior

      I thought you hated her

      • MenacingCascoon

        No way are you kidding. She is so cool and just pretty chill. She was pretty cliche in the anime, but in the games I liked how she says she nothing special even though shes a kahuna. She’s just pretty cool, and she’s bae material.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Could’ve sworn you didn’t like her

          • Murder Freak

            Some other people hated there

    • Lazy terror

      Hahaha yes finally a bad character gets out

    • Grahhh my picks keep leaving!

      Well Luasmine your targeted for eviction from the Big Pokémon House.

    • Sunny

      I am back on track. Also she was my most favorite of my least favorite three so I am sad to see her go as well, but there are just too many good characters in these games.

    • SpooktralSeraph

      She was SINGLEd out

      Awesome! I got one last year

    • SpooktralSeraph

      OHMY GOD ITS SO COOOL

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Fakemon concept that’s gonna be torn to shreds because I hate myself

    Illian Solosis line

    Electric/Steel-type, based on an individual metal atom, then a metallic lattice. It’s physically inclined rather than specially. Solosis is a grey metallic orb with some red and green details, in the middle of a glowing yellow aura, surrounded by small blue orbs. Duosion is a larger steel orb with a much smaller orb attached above it and another attached under it. Reuniclus follows this design theme, having arms made of these metallic orbs and an electrical aura. Has the abilities Plus and Minus, and the Hidden Ability Repulsion, which immediately inflicts Magnet Rise on all Steel and Electric-types upon switching in.

    They fled underground to avoid Diurnal Arabolas, their greatest predator in Illiux. They began absorbing metallic minerals through their membrane, and eventually emerged as magnetic creatures themselves. It has noticeably taken over the absent Magnemite’s role in Illiux.

    Diurnal Arabolas is a large, cowboy themed bolas spider, Bug/Dark. It uses its thread as a lasso.

    • Murder Freak

      Cowboy Spider… that may beat Cowabunga in the weirdest fakemon constest.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        It’s really just an exaggeration on what the Bolas spider already does

        • Murder Freak

          Huh. Is there a Nocturnal Arabolas?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Bug/Psychic, dangles a silk pendulum to hypnotise prey

            Dark is Diurnal and Psychic is Nocturnal because Diurnal is portrayed in an anti-heroic theme whereas Nocturnal is a straight up villain

          • EarthenWarrior

            Oh come on I did the psychic silk thing months ago

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Puppeteering and hypnosis are completely different

            Especially when I’ve had this one on the burner for over a year now lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            Alright I’ll give you that

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Thanks ::::p

      • SpooktralSeraph

        I can beat it

      • Lazy terror

        Not all lol I’ve seen weirder ;P

    • EarthenWarrior

      Diurnal Areolas?

      • Murder Freak

        There’s a Nocturnal form too

        • Unseelie Fairy

          He commented on it down below :p

          • EarthenWarrior

            You do realize I said areoles

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I just assumed it was you being an ignoramass as usual :p

          • EarthenWarrior

            I prefer timed belligerent

    • Lazy terror

      Arabolas seems very interesting cuz I like the whole thing of mixing spiders and cowboys. And the Alolan Solosis looks like a cool concept but I find it kinda weird the fact it absorbs minerals through its membrane

    Pokedex Number: 187
    Pinchirellla
    Classification: The Floating Crab Pokemon

    Speed: 61
    Base Stat Total: 335
    Pokedex Entry: Despite their fearsome appearance, Pinnchirella are extraordinarily timid. They will rarely enter combat unless their life is at stake. Escape and attack methods consist of creating a draft to blow themselves skyward to gain an aerial advantage. If they choose to attack, they will search for a weak spot on the target to pierce. When it evolves, this attacking trait is unchanged as the Pokemon grows much deadlier…

    Pokedex Number: 188

    Special Defense: 81
    Speed: 90
    Base Stat Total: 495
    Pokedex Entry: Guliosol are known to reside within sand dunes along the beach. They prefer bigger sizes because it lessens the amount of energy needed to make a wind draft, pushing them skyward. The draft they create allows them to reach and glide at high altitudes . When they see prey, they will stop creating the draft and brutally fall onto the foe in a corkscrew fashion with their claw. It is said a single hit could crack the shell of a Blastoise in one blow

    Opportunistic: All two turn attacks by the user will result in critical hits on their turns of impact.

    In a battle of weirdness, nobody outdoes me ;3

      Savage scavengers with spiny metal carapaces
      Into a ill tempered Goliath crab with a crane claw that can even crack Cloystera easily

      • SpooktralSeraph

        I think that entire fight would be location based
        In an open area yours dies , no contest, but in a closed area mine loses its entire advantage

        • EarthenWarrior

          But what about stats? This thing is just nothing but armor and aggression
          And it’s a Water/Steel type

          • SpooktralSeraph

            True but I mean lorewise that’s how this would go
            Besides it gets guliotine so

          • EarthenWarrior

            Sturdy
            And pretty much whoever gets close enough to land the blow, I mean that claw is a living hydrolic press and if anything gets in there it ain’t coming back

            And Krutankerous have very durable metallic shells covered in spines so unless it doesn’t dive bomb into a spike and get impaled it’s pretty much strength vs mobility

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Yeah, I think the biggest deciding factor is how many times it’s strikes miss or fail

          • EarthenWarrior

            But Krutankerous is slow (unless it’s angry which is pretty much all the time) you’d have to strike the same spot perfectly enough times to pierce it

          • SpooktralSeraph

            I mean… I dunno… it would be a battle I’d love to see though

          • EarthenWarrior

            Oh and Krutankerous eat ANYTHING they catch, magikarp, wailmer, Cloysters, even other members of its family

            Just a hyper aggressive species with no natural predators

    • Lazy terror

      I approve this badass flying crab 😛

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Yeeee
        It’s more of a gliding crab but the point still stands

        • EarthenWarrior

          Just the mere mention of the idea of a flying crab makes me wanna cover my junk

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Oh it wouldn’t aim there , it would aim for your head

          • EarthenWarrior

            Ehh nothing important there

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Welp

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Pinchster
      The Socially Transmitted Pokémon
      Fairy/Poison
      It infects hairs and makes it itchy

      Evolves into

      Crabbitch
      The Socially Transmitted Pokémon
      Fairy/Poison
      It jumps from trainer to trainer after intimate battles. It’s considered a pest

      You’ve been outdone

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Oh my god stop XD
        Seriously how do you like it?

        • Unseelie Fairy

          I like it, unique but not too out there that it becomes unrealistic

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Yeeeee >w<

    • Murder Freak

      Classification: Pokemon
      What the heck

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Oh shitt I forgot to include that part
        It’s supposed to say Dive Bomber

  • Murder Freak

    Decided to ditch my previous concept for Regional Rhyperior for a Rock/Fairy one based on extremalnie endared Rhinos hunted for their horns used for Healing purposes

    • Murder Freak

      jk

    • EarthenWarrior

      You never cease the desire to have you stuffed and mounted

      • Murder Freak

        Nah man I was jokin It’s gonna be either Fighting/Ground or Steel/Ground

        • SpooktralSeraph

          Steel honestly makes more sense

          • EarthenWarrior

            Duuude but no more Rock Wrecker, you’d be denying me my livelihood

          • SpooktralSeraph

            True true… so it does need rock in some sense

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Could replace it with a similar variant appropriate for its new typing

  • SpooktralSeraph

    For the sake of Halloween here’s a repost of an older fan mon! I might revamp it eventually

  • SpooktralSeraph

    Pokedex Entry: 147
    Candief
    Classification: The Candy Lover Pokemon
    Height: 1’04
    Weight:
    Type: Ghost/Fairy
    Ability: Candy Crook/Kleptomaniac
    Stats:
    HP: 20
    Attack: 50
    Defense: 20
    Special Attack: 20
    Special Defense: 30
    Speed: 100
    Base Stat Total: 240
    Pokedex Entry: This ghostly pokemon has an unhealthy obsession for sweet tasting goods and prioritizes them over almost anything else. This childlike pokemon is good at using its cuteness to win over its target in order to take what it desires. For, rather obvious reasons, it tends to get along extraordinarily well with children. It is rather cowardly in personality.

    Evolves Level 27 when a rare candy is used on it. (Note: This Candy can be used to get it to level 27)

    Pokedex Entry: 147
    Sugurglar
    Classification: The Sweet Snatcher Pokemon
    Height: 2’01
    Weight: 36.2
    Type: Ghost/Fairy
    Ability: Candy Crook or Kleptomaniac (Deciding between these two names
    Stats:
    HP: 60
    Attack: 100
    Defense: 50
    Special Attack: 60
    Special Defense: 75
    Speed: 120
    Base Stat Total: 465
    Pokedex Entry: Although its personality has not changed, its desire for sweets has only increased. It has changed from using charm to take its desired things to flat out stealing; an art it is extremely proficient in. Unlike its pre-evolution, Candief, this Pokemon is rather brave and will fight if it is necessary. It uses its blinding speed to circle around its opponent before striking whenever it sees an opening.

    Candy Crook/Kleptomaniac: If this Pokemon is on the field with any other pokemon that has a berry or candy item, it steals it and takes the effect.

    Wow I meant to post that in my last comment
    Anyways happy Halloween!

    • Murder Freak

      Wouldn’t Dark be better than Ghost?

      • SpooktralSeraph

        It would be if it weren’t for the fact that it’s LITERALLY a ghost

    • Lazy terror

      That’s an interesting take on the treat or trick thingy 😮

      We definitely need more Halloween Pkm

      • SpooktralSeraph

        It gets SO MUCH worse when you actually dive into the lore

        • Lazy terror

          There’s more? Like, it transforms people into candy and then eats them or something like that 🤔

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Check above ;3

  • EarthenWarrior

    So yeah working retail on Halloween sucks cornballs

    So many dumb people asking for specific candy completely oblivious to the notion that it’s effing Halloween and the store is picked clean
    Just wanna go home and order a pizza and cover it in Reece’s peanut butter cups

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Name: Stumbleweed
    Type: Ground/Grass
    Classification: The Tumbling Pokémon

    Defense: 107
    Sp. Attack: 40
    Sp. Defense: 100
    Speed: 40
    BST: 438

    Description: a tumbleweed with thorns weaved info it, so it looks like a spiked ball. Through the tumbleweed you can see the small, light brown earth Elemental inside. It resembles a small humanoid figure with green eyes. It’s almost gnome like, but not totally. It’s grinning in a cocky way.

    Infrared: Although it’s normally very slow, the slightest hint of wind or a descent will send it charging in all directions.

    Ultraviolet: Ancient peoples considered it a fickle desert spirit. It drops fruit from its tumbleweed, yet sometimes charges after the now vulnerable receiver.

    Ability: Rough ‘n’ Tumble
    Doubles attack power in a Tailwind or mysterious air current

    Ability: Drifter
    Gains an immunity to Flying-type moves, and speed is raised every time it’s hit by one.

    • SpooktralSeraph

      You know tumblr is the only good name for it

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Actual opinion 👀

        • SpooktralSeraph

          ;3

          • Unseelie Fairy

            That doesn’t resemble an opinion 👀

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Or does it

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Not really. You ask for opinions so it’s time to give some 👀

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Oooh that’s what you meant. I misread that XD

            I’m not really understanding it entirely, it’s a tumbleweed with an elemental thingy inside?

          • SpooktralSeraph

            Honestly, it’s a cool idea

    • Lazy terror

      Uh tumbleweed? That’s odd xD

      Does it evolve or something cuz the concept is neat

  • Murder Freak

    Another Regional form
    Slavian Rhyperior
    Steel/Ground
    People say that in a war long time ago people gave a mechanical Protector to Rhydon to make its evolution more weaponized. From that time all Rhydon in Slavy are given Mechanical Parts instead of regural Protectors. They produce Big metal bullets in their arms, so they can shoot from their hands without finding boulders.

    Ability: Living Tank/Cannon Fire
    Living Tank
    Its Defence, Sp Defence and Attack stats can’t be lowered
    Cannon Fire
    All bullet/missle/shooting moves are stronger and are more likely to hit.

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Okay okay this is a STEP in the right direction

      • Murder Freak

        That’s kinda a compliment, isn’t it?

        • SpooktralSeraph

          It is, the biggest things I’d change is
          1. The back story could use some work
          2. Scrap living tank
          3. Make it more cannony than bullety, it’s more fitting for Rhypherior

    • EarthenWarrior

      Didn’t Fairybutt do something about weaponized rhyhorns?

      • Murder Freak

        I don’t recall.
        And what is your actual opinion on it?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Hate it

          • Murder Freak

            good to know…

      • Unseelie Fairy

        It was bred so that its armour lost all impurities and it gained a shimmering steel skin

  • Sunny

    Seeing as it is Halloween, I am dressed up, and I haven’t posted my picture here before I am posting myself right now. I am dressed as a Team Rocket Grunt if that is not obvious. Let me know what you all think. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/dc702d2df440d994d9d22a86396f3ad92edee3addc6551e88292a4121865bd14.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/dc5abc88256dc732051777e7d0a9b80ad9dab37a81c8940ebfe8acf8f81200f6.jpg
    Haven’t shaved recently so I will do that soon. Contrary to my username I think I look a bit dark rather than sunny.

    • Sunny

      Blurry as fudge.

    • SpooktralSeraph

      Lookin good!

    • Murder Freak

      The short beard matches the outfit

      • Sunny

        Yes I am thinking of shaving the tomorrow when it would be a little weird for me to wear this in public.

    • Lazy terror

      Wow that’s a nice outfit 😮

      • Sunny

        That is the 7th comment that I have gotten today from someone I do not personally know. Thank you.

        • Murder Freak

          How many people from here you know personally?

    • EarthenWarrior

      You need a thicker goatee

      • Sunny

        Thank you for the sugesstion but I can’t grow my facial hair in time before Halloween ends.

  • Ultron

    Where da Halloween art!?!!

  • SpooktralSeraph

    Background on Candief and Sugurglar

    Candief is the spirit of a child who perished on Halloween. It’s desire to be alive again and its refusal to ditch the only part of its personality it retains (its childishness) lead it to seek candy, a constant reminder of its past. It will frequently play mischievous tricks to get candy but never acts out of malice. Once it evolves, it’s obsession with candy increases and FORCES it to have a constant supply or it is drowsy and unable to function. This leads to it peformimg any deed, no matter how vile, to get candy. It is possible to ween it off candy but it still needs constant sweetness regardless

    • SpooktralSeraph

      *its desire

    • Lazy terror

      Feel bad for its evolution :/

      • SpooktralSeraph

        Yuuup
        This mon is absolutely fucked up

  • Murder Freak

    I’m thinking about my regional forms of Gen 4 starters…

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well since everyone is ghosting around here’s all my ghost fakemons

    Opasson Normal/Ghost: Semi-deceased opossum
    Grimgoyl Rock/Ghost: hulking gargoyle
    Spectini-Ghoastalker-Greaper Ghost-Ghost-Ghost/Steel: stalking spirits
    Shillouette: Normal/Ghost: White cherub with living shadow
    Draghoul-Drequiem Dragon/Ghost: Immortal yet decaying dragonkin
    Necrocular Ghost: Floating eyeball of doom
    And a mythical Recursive Ghost/Steel: Mirror to the negative realm

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I really like some of yours, especially Shillouete :0

      • EarthenWarrior

        That was a fun one to design
        Think about a white featureless creature kinda like a chao from sonic, two nub like arms and legs and a small reptile tail and big eyes and antenna but it’s tail is stabbed into the ground and from the tip is a crude 2d shadow with angry eyes constantly following it, the shadow feels the pain of its host so it doesn’t allow it to be harmed, slinking from the shadows to strike anywhere

        The body barely acknowledges its shadow’s efforts (it’s a very…oblivious Pokemon) when night falls the shadow grows its strongest but is still like linked to the body so it can’t roam around

        • EarthenWarrior

          Oh also not to keep tooting my horn, pretty proud of the name
          Shill as in Shill: accomplice of a hawker, gambler, or swindler who acts as an enthusiastic customer to entice or encourage others.

          And silhouette which is the outline of light and dark

        • SpooktralSeraph

          I love it but one huge thing… a shadow wouldn’t really be strongest at night

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Rats can’t shoot lightning

          • Murder Freak

            That’s diffrent

          • Unseelie Fairy

            In what way

          • SpooktralSeraph

            I knowwwwwww, I just wish it was more accurate to the shadowy part because it’s such a common misconception
            But I still adore the design though

          • EarthenWarrior

            But it has more shadows to move in and with greater volume

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Ehhh those are technically not shadows because shadows are caused by light but I get the jist

          • EarthenWarrior

            Let’s just say it can’t move in the light….. But then again light is everywhere and this thing is barely a foot tall and not really giving it a whole lot to work with, let’s just not mockup the works with details

            The shadow lives and attacks anything that gets close enough

          • SpooktralSeraph

            ^^

    • Murder Freak

      Mine are:
      Vimpere-Fire/Ghost a Vampire Viper Final starter evo
      Decapitis-Bug/Ghost a male Mantis with its head bitten off after mating
      Firit-Ghost/Fire an Autumn Flame Ghost with two forms (Soul form and Nightmare form)
      Hauntdrawn -> Artialize-Ghost to Ghost/Normal a Ghost that used its Art to make itself a physical body

      And 2 Tale Pokemon (kinda like Ultra Beast for my games but not alien) and few Regional Forms but I’m too lazy to write about them

    • I guess I should say mine too (note None of my are 100% solid and the region us no where near finished)
      -An unnamed haunted Scarecrow- Either Ghost or Ghost/Fairy (compliments to Ultron for the idea of Fairy)
      -A Skeletal Dinosaur made of bones and Rocks- Rock/Ghost
      -My regional bug is a Beetle that is part ghost and gains Ghost in the cocoon- Bug/Ghost
      -And my Kabuki Mythical- Psychic/Ghost

      I don’t have all of them done so yeah

  • EarthenWarrior

    Oh damn
