Well friends, the final chapter of our Alolan adventure is almost upon us and the final trailer before the release of Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon has arrived.

The review embargo for the games has also been lifted, so here’s what official outlets are saying:

  • Nintendo Life 10/10 – “You’d be forgiven for not wanting to jump back into the same world again so soon but, in their own right, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon are truly incredible entries to the series that deserve to be sitting amongst the elite Pokémon titles.”
  • GameReactor 9/10“The story is much more engaging this time around, there’s plenty of call-backs for long-time fans, and the title’s proceed to push the 3DS even further.”
  • Gamespot 8/10“Though they aren’t very different from their predecessors, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon make enough changes to stand apart as the definitive version of the seventh generation games.”
  • EGM 8/10 – “The definitive edition of Pokémon Sun and Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon encapsulate the elements of what made the first set of games great—and also carry forward some of the games’ flaws.”
  • TheSixthAxis 8/10“Plenty of new features and details will make fans of the franchise very happy and while I still mourn for the DexNav to this day, the new content is well worth becoming Alolan Champion once more.”
  • GameXplain ‘Liked-A-Lot’ – “They feel incredibly familiar to those who have traveled to Alola before”
  • Famitsu 36/40

    Are they hinting at a evolution for Ash’s Rowlet? https://twitter.com/Pokemon/status/930247218455494657

    • Butter Geek

      That’d be cool

    • TheReece25

      How so? That’s just a clip from the start of the anime. Plus there was a leak showing Ash next to incineroar and it was still rowlet

    • Unseelie Fairy

      What about this hints at an evolution like at all tho

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Only that they are giving it attention.

  • Dicie

    What game were these sites reviewing? I’m baffled at the high scores for such small changes.

    • PJ

      I think they’re probably basing it as a stand-alone title for someone buying the first time. For us it might score lower

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        Destructoid specifically mentioned playing it prior and that the small changes were enough to make the game better

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          *playing seventh gen prior

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Because it’s being reviewed as its own game as it was released as its own game, not as an expansion of an existing title. There’s people who’ve never played the original SuMo so the reviews are far fairer for them too because if they treated it like DLC then people who never played SuMo but are looking to buy USUM wouldn’t get a fair look at how they stand as an experience.

      • Ultron

        I feel like reviewing USUM as its own game isn’t smart because its not its own game. It’s been marketed as an enhanced Sun and Moon, so the main points of the review for a game like this should always be the differences between these and the originals. The reviews should really question: Was this worth it? Did this need to be made? What are the changes and are they good enough for the consumer to buy again?

        It seems from these reviews that most of them think they’re worthy of existing.

  • Damn, some of these scores are on par with BoTW. That’s impressive

    • Not at all actually. Game reviews are almost never outside of a 7-10 ratio

      Not to take away from the game itself it’s probably good but it’s not a breath of the Wild or Mario Odyssey

    • Ultron

      Not really? BotW received almost perfect scores from every place.

  • Cinnamon Squirrel

    Oh I honestly expected this. These games look amazing! I can’t wait!


  • Well, now we have an English trailer. It’s not even a minute long though…

  • Why are game reviews so…. bad

  • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

    These review scores are makin me all giggly

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    “there’s plenty of call-backs for long-time fans” ejem probably stuff for only gen 1 ejem

    But anyways, just by the reviews I can tell that the game are SM but with improvements and new features, so like, every third version ever, but I’m surprised the scores aren’t a bit higher if it just SM but better, but maybe it’s because it is still too similar to SM lol

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      I mean it’s mostly gen 1 but there are a FEW nice callbacks to previous gens mainly in the postagame

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Like what? 😮

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          Namely off the top my head Ghetsis makes a comment in which he refers to N

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Uh, now it makes me want a Pkm game where N appears again

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            We all do, but there is a fair amount of references to other games

  • Butter Geek

    English version was released revealing some new tutor moves (for example Drain Punch for Incineroar)

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      It also gets knock off

    • Monkeyfuzz

      We do actually know them all from datamining if you wanted to know all.

  • Shady

    I will make ur eyes bleeding! http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1510670066025.jpg

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I’LL BE THE ONE… TO FILL YOUR DARK SOUL WITH LIIIIIIIIGHT

  • Ultron

    Part of me is excited for this game…part of me hopes this is the last third version we ever see. Literally if USUM is the game you wanted to make from the beginning, THEN MAKE IT FROM THE BEGINNING.

    • Sunniera

      The rational part of me agrees with Ultron…the not so rational part wants Ultron to be wrong just to see more of Ultron ranting.

      • Ultron

        Ultron does enjoy a good rant every now and then. 😉

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I don’t care what anyone else says I’m looking forward to playing these games. There’s been so much complaining negativity about them it’s been ridiculous. Do these games not deserve to be respected in their own right as you would Platinum? I’ve seen people saying that you should completely ignore DP because Platinum is the real game of the 3. Should USUM not be treated the same? Or at the very least given the chance? All that said yes I would agree I do hope going forward they drop the 3rd version standard

    • I find complaining about people complaining about USUM more annoying than people complaining about USUM

      It’s kinda oversimplifying the problems people have with it

      • Sunniera

        I find complaining about people complaining about people complaining about USUM more complaining than people complaining about USUM

        It’s kinda complaining the problems people have with it

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          I find it more annoying that people complain about the fact that there’s no Battle Frontier still
          Even though it’s sorta clear it’s probably never comin back

          • Ultron

            Well if we don’t complain how will gamefreak know we still want it? Though clearly they don’t listen to us anyway -eyeroll-

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            Maybe they’re purposely holding it off cause we’re complaining
            After all, nobody complained about team rocket not being around anymore and look what happened

          • Ultron

            Us: “Please stop with the Gen 1 pandering, Gamefreak!!”

            Gamefreak: “Hey, everyone, I heard they want more Gen 1 stuff!!!!!!!!!”

            That said, I’m excited for rainbow rocket lol

          • Sunniera

            How I-and most likely Earthen-wish for another Gen 5 miracle.

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            Okay lemme try
            FUCC THE BATTLE FRONTIER NOBODY WANTS IT

            Now are we gonna get it if we talk about it like that?

          • Ultron

            Hopefully!

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            We gotta

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Lol actually fuc the battle Frontier I can’t believe fans want a bunch of filters on the battle tower before actual innovation

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            ;3

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Better than what we got really, and seem to be one of the few people who doesn’t want it back so eh.

            And if we gte improvement it has to be something better than BF because what we have got so far is eh

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I mean it might be because more people don’t mind/like Kanto pandering than people complaining about it and it’s just that we’re unfortunately in a minority but meh whatever

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            But what if Sinnoh remakes

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            Remember ORAS?

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            This time it might be different

            I mean

            IT BETTER BE

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            It’s a remake

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I’m not saying you HAVE to like USUM. You don’t, but acting like it’s any different from Platinum is crazy. You’ve said yourself that Platinum is one of the greatest games in the series so how is it really any different with USUM? (not saying they’re the greatest tho). I’m not happy that they’re going back to regular 3rd versions either, but we get what we get. you can’t compare USUM to BW2 because they’re very different games that are out to accomplish very different goals. Is USUM the best game in the series? I can’t say that as I have not played it yet and maybe it isn’t in general, but the fact is this is what we got. If you can critique Platinum as if it’s a stand alone game then I think it’s only fair for you to critique USUM as it’s own game too. If you want to throw in things like why wasn’t this in SM and why wasn’t that in SM then I could say the same thing about DPPT. Why wasn’t the BF in DP? Why wasn’t the dex better organized? Why wasn’t the pacing better in DP? If they could put all of that in Platinum then why couldn’t they do that for DP? See it’s the same thing. The only difference it that now we’ve had a taste of the series without regular 3rd versions being around and that in itself is a better deal. Again I want them to get away from 3rd versions too as they’re redundant, but for now we have what we have and we should critique the individual games for what they are rather than constantly comparing them to other games

        • It’s very different from platinum actually. The issues in Diamond and Pearl are actually fixed. Not really so in USUM.

          It’s also two games soo..that leaves a bad taste in my mouth

          By your logic, Crystal and Platinum are equally good which is ridiculous

    • Agent F

      Well done friend for standing up!
      There’s just too much negativity towards GF and the Poke games these days.
      I too just like yourself give no value to the negativity or negative people anymore.
      I’m gonna enjoy the game and appreciate them for what they are!
      Only few days left now!

      • I too give no value to myself

        • Agent F

          You should value yourself.
          You have many good qualities such as your drawing, personality etc
          I’m not targetting you with above comment just a general statement :]

          • lol yes you are

          • Agent F

            Maybe because I guess you have been quite critical. Sorry fam I should have been less aggressive.
            But I’m being serious I’m just tryna do my own thing from now on.
            No point getting involved, arguing and being immature.
            I hope you enjoy them and if you don’t,I might say but star this was good. I won’t get into heated debates again or I’ll try to be more friendly 🙂

          • “Heated debates”

            lol

          • Agent F

            Yeah that’s right :]

        • Unseelie Fairy

          TIL having no critical thinking is good

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        I’m not so sure about the don’t value the people that aren’t being positive with the game thingy, like, one should acknowledge that people are angry for a reason

        • Agent F

          Yeah sorry maybe I didn’t pick my words well. What I mean now at least is that I’m not interested in the negativity be that forceful opinions on the game or some of the sly comments people are pulling to try and irritate me. And I’m not referring to star here.
          I am looking to be positive and not drag myself into thede immature circles, fights etc

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Eh people seem to be complaining because they’re tired of third versions every time a new game comes out that aren’t very different from the main game and because there has been problems with the marketing before so people didn’t really knew what they were getting.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      People are allowed to complain. Most of the heavy complainers, like Star and Ultron, are buying the game hence giving it a chance. They’re allowed to express their opinions on the game just as people who praise the game are.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Not saying people can’t complain outright, but they shouldn’t act like USUM are some majorly new upset where it’s never been like this before. People love the old 3rd versions and never complain about them much, but now that we got USUM it’s all this weird negatively as if this has never happened before.

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Because the old third versions came out when DLC weren’t common practice and were utilised for games that had more glaring issues then SuMo had. Most of SuMo’s issues could’ve been fixed with a sequel rather than a copy paste.

          Also it’s unnecessarily split into 2 when one of the points of past third versions of were to unify the two first versions.

  • Govnah
    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Calling it, Persona 5

    • Ultron

      PUBG does not deserve to be there…sure, it’s a fun game, but it’s literally just a multiplayer battle royale.

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        Gotta fill that last slot somehow

        • SONIC MANIA

          NIER AUTOMA

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            But a normie game is needed each year or it’s clearly rigged

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Wow Persona 5, didn’t expect that

      • Govnah

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          If they somehow win the award, this song better be playing

          • I imagine either Wake Up Get Up Get Out There or Hoshi To Bokura To will play

    • Breath of the Wild hands down

    • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

      Last week I would’ve told you Odyssey but I’ve been getting back into BoTW so I can finally finish the story before the DLC (btw can anyone tell me exactly where Yiga Hideout is? I know it’s in that anyone but I just can’t find the damn thing) and now it hands down deserves the award

    • What website is this?

  • Looking forward to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! Only 3 more days now!

    • Sunniera

      Looking forward to not being able to play Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon despite it being week long break due to an interview in another state, and visit from extended family for who knows how long-hopefully not during Thanksgiving.

  • Sunniera

    I feel like there are a lot of lurkers on the site. (Nothing wrong with that). I looked at the total number of votes for the current poll on Pokejungle (309 votes). I am estimating that I have only seen like 1/10th of this amount actually posting on the comment section in recent articles.

  • Shady

    Wtf wrong with Kyogre and Groudon size?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Nothing you sizist

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Gf is like, never consistent with their sizes

  • Armaggedon16

    At kiawe’s trial. Dont see any improvements so far.

    • Dicie

      “Ultra” Sun And Moon. A joke.

      • Armaggedon16

        Eh from the trailers it seems the differences kick off after the story takes off, which should be after Akala. Let’s see

      • Govnah

        Ok. but it still has changes that happens later on, like most third versions

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Inb4 no one challenges your opinion like Stars or Ultrons because they know they can’t rag on you without consequences

        I have to agree, third versions are outdated and beyond obsolete. I just hope they used the time this filler bought them to make PokéSwitch even better

        • Dicie

          Everyone has their right to an opinion, being a mod doesn’t mean I’m always right 🙂

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        Admittedly there is quite a lot of issues with the games and the actual practice of third games is possibly one of the stupid things I’ve seen
        But simply dismissing the games as if they did nothing is a joke in itself.
        There needs to be change, but as a standalone game they’re pretty solid

        • Dicie

          As a standalone game I agree–the reviews speak for themselves.
          As a full price improvement over SM? Not by a long shot.

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      it’s samey till mid Ula Ula

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        That’s VERY late but still most changes than any third version really

      • Armaggedon16

        Ugh so I’ll have to play the same game for 60% of the story

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          Basically it’s QOL, a different climax, and new postgame

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Is it already confirmed whether or not USUM is compatible with SuMo via quick link?

        Which Unown forms are in this game?

          Unown U & R, as well as G and A and Y.

    Collect BP and Learn New Moves!

    In Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, you can teach your Pokémon moves in exchange for Battle Points—moves they would not be able to learn by leveling up or through any TM. There are places where your Pokémon can learn these moves on each island.

    You can earn BP by winning battles in the Alola region’s battle facilities, such as the Battle Royal Dome and the Battle Tree, or by using Mantine Surf from various beaches.

    In addition to teaching moves to the Pokémon that travel with you on your journey, you can also teach them to the Legendary Pokémon you’ve caught by passing through an Ultra Wormhole. Come up with your own favorite combination of Pokémon and moves to stand out from the crowd!

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Literally everyone including myself forgot battle royale was a thing

  • For those that have seen the leaks, I know this is a really stupid question but, are the Looker and Anabel missions with the Ultra Beasts still in the game or has that been removed?

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      gone like the frontier she belonged to

      • Also, another question. When the Elite Four is rematched, do they have slightly higher levels like they did in Sun and Moon?

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          yeah it’s about a ten level jump

          • Okay. Thank you!

          • And one more final question then I’ll stop. Is Looker still in the game in some capacity? I swear I saw a music file on YouTube that was titled Handsome (which is his Japanese name).

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            I know he is but where I dunno

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I’m watching the GameXplain review. so apparently they fix SOS battle calls to only have the Pokemon call one rather than endless call Pokemon over and over? If that’s the case that may ruin shiny hunting through SOS calls…….

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Adrenaline Orbs counter this

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Oh so the just one thing only counts if you don’t use the Adrenaline orbs? Because if each new mon only could call one other then that would be problematic

    • Govnah

      my friend got a shiny through sos in USUM the other day

      • Hayley Waalen

        What Pokemon was it?

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Welp, they make make a new shiny hunting method but ruin the other

      Nothing new 😛

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Yeah that seems about right haha

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Though there is a better way to shiny hunt
      Two to be specifc

      • TheNintendoChip

        What are they? I know one but not the other.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Samesies!!

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          The new egg process of gen 7 and spoilery one involving the wormholes

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        2? I know of one, but the other I’m not so sure.

  • Agent F

    Just had a nice long sleep.
    And I feel fresh as a Feraligatr!
    It really makes the world of a difference.
    I feel strong, energetic, positive and ready to go!
    Where’s my copy of US, I’m fired up!

    On a serious note, guys my advice always sleep well it makes such a difference to the quality of your day!
    OFC I learnt that the hard way :]

    • Waiting for my copy of USUM too. Still haven’t gotten a confirmation e-mail from GameStop that it’ll be ready for pick-up in the store on Friday yet. Should hopefully get that either tomorrow or Thursday. For Superstar Saga, the confirmation e-mail came the day before. While for Odyssey, the confirmation e-mail came 4 days before.

      • Agent F

        Did you pre-order both?
        If so which one will you play first?
        I’m super excited now can’t wait!

        • I pre-ordered both. I’m going to play Ultra Moon first. My friend is getting both as well but is going to play though Ultra Sun first, so that we can trade together. I heard Tyrantrum is going to be in the game as a fossil from Tyrunt. He’s my favorite Pokemon of all time. So I can’t wait to use him on my team!

          • Agent F

            awesomee man you look like you’re ready to go! I might be using a Dragonite!

          • Dragonite seems like a good choice. I never used one before. The only Psudeo Legendaries I’ve used have been Tyranitar and Kommo-o.

          • Agent F

            Thanks yeah it’s probably one of my signature mons and it’s really strong!

    • Govnah

        NATIONWIDE IS ON YOUR SIDE

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So let’s say gen 8 is next year. And also that the next movie has a gen 8 Pokemon. I hope that the gen 8 Pokemon isn’t a mythical. I’m sick of the special guest Pokemon being mythicals. I want them to go back and do a movie where it focuses on a regular Pokemon for once. I liked the Lucario and Zoroark movies a great deal. Sure they both technically had mythical Pokemon in them, but they weren’t the main stars. If the new mythical for this gen is one of the Pokemon in next year’s movie (and we know it will be) I hope the other special Pokemon isn’t a normal more attainable mon. Mythicals are coo, but I’ll never consider using on in my main team.

      Ugh……8 bit music…..SO glad they went from that grossness to real recorded music

      • Uh… 8 bit sounds great most of the time?

        That’s not the main reason it’s bad. The HGSS version is still awful

    Ughhhhhhh just 3 more days Earthen……just 3 moar days….
    Signing off….

    If anybody wants to be a real cool dude and relocate a guide of Pokemon encounters for routes in USUM dat would be helpful

  • MenacingCascoon

    I’m pretty surprised you guys voted off Gladion next.
    He’s such a cool and unique character thought it would be him vs Lillie. I just wish he had better Pokemon. Idk his pokemon dont seem to fit him IMO.

    Well now. It’s mother vs daughter.
    Well it be Lusamine, our female anatagonist, who had a different goal than trying to rule the world. Who was far more unique and crazy than past anatagonists.
    Or will it be Lille, our companion throughout the whole game who had probably the most character development of any character.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I’m confused, it’s saying I’ve already filled this in when I haven’t?

      • MenacingCascoon

        Sorry try again

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Thanks, that’s my last vote submitted :0

    • Well one of these character is a precious cinnamon roll and one of them is a deranged child abuser

      • Govnah

        I didnt know Lillie was a child abuser

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Yeah Lillie most likely will win.

      But I’m kinda surprised Lusamine got that high, like I never knew she was that popular

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I voted for her a fair few times, especially when my favourites went.

    • Your telling me Weavile doesn’t fit a darker character?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Lillie will win.

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Wow okay I like how the trash wasn’t taken out yet

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Blah blah blah Pokémon real, blah blah blah anime style

    Who on the jungle do you think would be the best trainer overall? I’d probably guess one of the mods, Casc, or Earthen tbh.

    • Govnah

      so we got
      Cant touch them vs Plays 3 game vs Ground type fetish

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Yes.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Heyy I am actually included in something that’s cool! Thanks for that. I am intrigued myself who would win.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Me of course duh

      Probably Seraph, Casco or Earthen really

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        Someone actually included me 😀

    • Agent F

      With confidence I would say myself!

    • Earthen, Casc. (Literally wiped the floor with Me, using Chatot) or possibly UltraMonster

      • MenacingCascoon

        Heyyy I just used that chatot to rekt someone last week! Good times,and Good mon

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I appreciate the mention, but I’m not sure I’m worthy of such praise. I’m pretty knowledgeable about the series, but competitive play has never been my forte. One day maybe it will be, but for now I’d say I’m not one of the best haha

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      I feel hurt right now

    • Soggy Auggy

      I think my bae Menacing 😍

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Should I use Totem sized Araquanid or should I just catch a regular Dewpider and evolve it? Idk what I want to do. If I go Dewpider then I can have it any time I want, but a huge Araquanid is really pretty baller

    • MenacingCascoon

      Spoilers… plz I actually dont want to know the totem mons. Thanks

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Whoops that’s entirely my bad…..sorry about that…..I’ll see myself out now……….

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Totem Salazzle is replace by a Totem Hiker that uses three Totem Magmars

        Sorry not sorry 👀 👀 👀 👀 👃 👄 👀

  • Ok based on the new moves given to Pokémon in USUM these are some I hate

    -First off, who da F*ck thought that Ariados, Qwilfish, Corsola, Vibrava, Kricketune, Carnivine and GOLDEEN getting Throat Chop (minding Goldeen has no limbs strong enough to chop something), while Magmar Blaziken, and Electabuzz and others can’t use it at all!
    -Farfetch’d got a move that could widely benefit it being First Impression as an egg move, only to find out Golisopod and it can’t breed meaning its impossible to obtain one!
    -The fact just about anything with wings now learns Defog (least upset about this)

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Farfetch’d can breed with Smeargle so you just Sketch First Impression and get it that way. Same for Leaf Balde iirc.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Farfetch’d is in the field egg group

      It can get that move from Smeargle

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Klefki with defog

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Jangling.

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          Kommo-o?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Key Jangling, shakes them really fast to decimate the fog and all hazards, such is the force of its’ jangling keys

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            explain rotoms that aren’t fan

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Electr0-farts.

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            totally

  • MenacingCascoon

    These reviews are pretty great. Also judging by other people’s review these are apparently the hardest 3ds games which is amazing! We finally get the difficulty we’ve always wanted. I’m ready for these games. Now I will say these will be awesome, but what isnt awesome are 3rd version reboots.
    As much as I will probably love USUM, I am DONE with third version reboots, It’s such a horrible development mechanic. Why should I have to pay again for things that should have been included in the first game! This game also did the most basic for third version games. No good battle facility. Seriously?? I can still only test my pkemon in Battle Tower remake? I want some minigames I want to use my Pokemon in. I love Photo Club because I can have pictures with MY pokemon! Pokeathelon used MY Pokemon. Mantine surf isnt my MY Mantine. Battle Agency is fun because Battle Factory is fun, but I like some variety. I liked Battle Dome, or Battle Arena. I liked Battle Arcade or Battle Hall. But this is just Tower and Factory. Battle Tree doesnt even have new trainers (Recon team would have been an amazing addition). Yes these reviews are amazing for the story and such, but after that. What’s keeping me playing.
    This is all coming from my need for something in post which GF isnt delivering, Im sorry for ranting about this topic for the 10000th time but it’s just so annoying

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      I agree with your points here

      Also as a heads up
      This isn’t just the hardest 3ds game
      I’m saying this MIGHT be the hardest Pokemon game period

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        People are saying it’s that hard huh? That’s incredibly interesting

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          As somebody who’s seen all the hard battles in the game…. I think I’m willing to vouch for it

        • Chaos

          I fear it being more tedious than hard.

          Please don’t make me grind levels, cos of a broken level curve or something…

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            Oh! I can answer this!
            The level curve actually seems extremely good considering alolas was decent already! The only warning is near the climax a certain foe has a level that exceeds yours by a lot. Its meant to be like this. Keep the exp share on and you may be at or above the level requirements

          • Chaos

            Meh, i guess at that point, I will at least have a ton of items, useful TMs and I can always purchase a bunch of X-items. I hate the incredibly tedious early game when you at lack the items to even think up a good strategy…

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            this is sumo early game though. You can get a hawlucha before the first kahuna.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            You can also steal Lucky Eggs from Chansey again I think.

          • Chaos

            Well if i remember correctly we’ve been given a free lucky egg in the last few games anyway…

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yeah 1, you might want one for all 6 of the ‘mon with you.

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            that I’m pretty sure is postgame

      • MenacingCascoon

        I wouldn’t doubt that! I’m ready!

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          You say that….
          but trust me
          NOBODY is ready

          • MenacingCascoon

            Have you forgotten. Im using Torracat instead of Incineroar. Im beyond ready!

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            Oh I know
            You played the smart role with Litten
            But all I’m gonna tell you
            Is to prepare for EVERYTHING

      • Agent F

        Really? Is it that difficult?
        Wow sounds awesome man!

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          ;3

          • Agent F

            Seraph should I play on set??
            These games sound frighteningly hard with set I my get my a s s handed to me 😛

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            Handed in a platter, seasoned with a couple hundred unique flavors, and than thrown out

            Basically wrecked in every single form

    • Chaos

      ‘Why should I have to pay again for things that should have been included in the first game’.

      These are my exact feelings about paid DLC/Add-ons.

      But yeah I agree either a third version needs to be drastically different from the base games, or they need to do away with them.

      I get the idea behind releasing 2 versions each generation (as much as i think it is a waste of money to buy both), but releasing a third version a year later with minimal changes is just insulting…

      • MenacingCascoon

        I agree with that. Especially DLC, it’s paying $40 dollars for minor stuff. See if it was a sequel I would be ok with that because it’s different story, but it’s barely any changes, it’s just annoying, and especially that theyre making 3rd versions 2 games just comes off as money grabbing. I really hope they drop this. If not I might as well not buy the original games and just wait until 3rd versions come out and play those

        Offtopic smash 4 had literally the worst DLC. $5 dollars for each character. $35 dollars (over half the game’s cost) just to have all the characters. That’s insane!

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I think I’ll enjoy USUM quite a bit, but I gotta say I’m ready for this prerelease to be over with and not because I’m crazy excited to play either……Regardless of who’s right and who’s wrong in all this arguing and debating I’m just kind of tired. I know I’ve started up a few debates here and there, but I’m just ready for us all to get back on the same page in some way. I think a nice new gen or even a year off can give us a good reboot for our systems. USUM has been such a controversy since it was announced I can’t say I’m surprised that the last 5 months has been a mess. I love ya’ll and regardless of differing opinions I want us to all to continue to be good buddies!

    • Agent F

      Yay :]
      We’ll all be on the same page once we start playing the games. The excitement, the madness and thrill of the games will bring us together again!

      • Govnah

        and what if we arent

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          Than we go to the move tutor, teach ourselves bind and FORCE us togethre

          • Govnah

            did u say force

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            NO HOLDING BACK
            ME AND YOU WE’RE ON THE ATTACK
            FULL SPEED AHEAD
            AS WE RACE TO THE SUNSET
            SUCH A DIFFERENT FEELING
            I WISH THAT I WAS DEAD
            THIS GAMES A FUCKING MEME FEST

        • Agent F

          What seraph said basically!

  • ShinyXatu

    As someone who loved Sun and Moon for what they already were, all of these changes are very good! I’m glad that I’ll finally have a “complete experience” for me to sink my teeth into, including shiny hunting (which I never took seriously in Sun like I said I would. Now’s the time!) I just wish we could have a Battle Frontier to right some of Game Freak’s wrongs…that ORAS incident is forever unforgivable. But my dual steelbook ships tomorrow and will complete my collection of Pokémon games from Gen 4 to Gen 7! It’s really just Gen 3 which eludes me, mainly because of laziness 😛

  • Deerlia

    Such an excited deer am I~

  • Govnah

    Im still not excited for USUM

    • Deerlia

      That’s quite alright, there’s a game on the horizon, so you’ll be set sooner or later!

  • Govnah

    I dont like the idea playing through basically the same again, only for the end game to be totally different, its gonna bore me to get up to that point again

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Understandable

    • MenacingCascoon

      Hey at least the areas look different!…

      • Govnah

        Hey atleast that one pixel is now green instead of pink

    • Chaos

      I wish they went with the idea of it being set in a different universe by making some major changes. And then give us the option to travel to the SuMo universe in the post-game. That would have been fun.

      Also I wish they would have at least completely revamped the pokedex and route encounters instead of making some very minor changes.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Well I can but I don’t like spending money on games that are very similar to those I’ve played even if they’re an improvement really 😡

  • Well, I cast my votes for the Game Awards (I think), and I mainly voted for Persona 5 whenever I could (Sometimes because it was the only game I played in that category). What did you guys vote for in the different categories? (If you did, that is)

    Yo Homies USUM Competitions n Shiet

    To kinda hype us up as a community, here’s a list of USUM competitions I’m hoping to organise for you guys to enjoy!

    Photo Folio! First Hall of Famers!
    Competition Style: Photo Club Folio
    Celebrating: Release
    Deadline: 31st November
    Description: Using the photo club, assemble a folio of photos that feature the six Pokémon that took you to stardom!
    Notes: Judging will be done through community voting.
    Prize: Love Ball for the winner
    Restrictions: Must be the six Pokémon you used to reach the Hall of Fame.

    Tourney! First Hall of Famers!
    Competition Style: Tourney*
    Celebrating: Release
    Deadline: Preferably ended before the 10th of December.
    Description: Using the team that you used in the climactic battle, fight it out with other junglers to claim victory!
    Notes: You can optimise the Pokémon for the competition, but they must be the actual team members that entered the hall of fame with you. Legendaries are banned, besides Silvally.
    Prize: Level Ball for the winner
    Restrictions: Your six Hall of Fame Pokémon, at least three of the Pokémon must of been caught in the game (to prevent fully optimised traded in teams from absolutely dominating), no legendaries.

    *Format of tourney depends on entry numbers

    The tourneys have kinda bad rewards, but I don’t want to invest so much effort in just for me to be ignored and for the thing not to happen. I just thought this would be good to set up and enjoy in order to hype USUM up, y’know? Please help spread the word so we can make this a thing :0

    Theze are meant to be as inclusive as possible, and as you notice it’s not a typical comp tourney with fully IVd mons and stuff.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Oh God what happened to my comment lol

      I’ll edit this so refresh lol

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Oooh!!! I like this!!!!
      I have a… weird suggestion for a challenge

    • Agent F

      Wow did you make all of these yourself??
      Very impressive!

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Wait who’s the judge? What if there’s mon bias?

      • Unseelie Fairy

        ??!

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Wrong comment I replied to lol

        But do you mean for the photo folio? Because it’s a community vote, using the same thing Casc used for his character poll.

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          Oooh good I was worried
          Still cool though!

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I’m judge, judy and executioner.

    • Armaggedon16

      Someone do a competitive Tourney.
      I wanna rek people

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        Shush we will
        Just…. give it like a month
        There’s a lot of new stuff in USUM that we need to get ready first

      • MenacingCascoon

        On it!

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          Draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaafffffft stttttyleeeeeeeeeeeeee

          • MenacingCascoon

            If we get enough people I will do draft style

          • Unseelie Fairy

            What’s draft style?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            You leave the window slightly open when it’s a tad windy and have to battle with constant chills whispering down your neck.

          • MenacingCascoon

            So it’s basically the people enterring tournament all come together and pick 10 pokemon from the whole dex (excluding bans) and there is no repeats on picks.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Ah that’s cool :0

            Hope I can compete in it some day

      • Agent F

        Lets do this im ready right now 👊

      • Unseelie Fairy

        I’ll happily help organise comp tourneys later, I just think it’s fitting if the first one is a bit more casual friendly 😀

        • MenacingCascoon

          I love the photo club option! Good job! you should make a rubric thingy where people can rate like creativity/ clothes/ background. Stuff like that

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Was gonna use Google forms, so what I’ll do is do a variety of questions to see what photos get different responses and stuff

    • Unseelie Fairy

      If this stuff succeeds, I’ve got plans for next month too. Photo folio + Christmas themed tourney

      Get hoipe

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Wow, is nice you’re doing this for this game season hype, hope it goes well :0

    • I would love to do this!
      Let’s hope bank works day one so I can get those special backgrounds cuz I need them

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Nice, how long it take to find?

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Hmmm maybe like 200 encounters or so? It wasn’t too bad. Felt like doing something different then SOS chaining

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            😤😤😤

  • Cinnamon Squirrel

    I have my FINAL Ultra Sun team devised. Here’s the team, and I’ll be explaining the reasoning between each Pokemon!

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6da6e19100205af3422cda606dca283425aa30653b948c68c4ecffdb36414ad4.png

    Ash-Greninja
    Reason: I saw so many people using this Pokemon for Sun/Moon. I only really used it for the demo, and then it spent the rest of Sun sitting in my PC. I was trying to stick to New Pokemon introduced through Alola, and this from (technically) counts as it’s the first generation where it appears. Also, the typing is kind of how I was able to build the rest of my team!

    Decidueye
    Reason: Last game I chose Litten as my starter, but from the beginning, I was also able to get a Rowlet and a Popplio on my team. So, I used all 3 started last time. I was originally gonna use Litten this run, but he cause a lot of problems when it came to weaknesses. When I added Ash-Greninja, I kind of shifted a couple of Pokemon, and vola, I got Decidueye!

    Oricorio (Melemele Version)

    Reason: I wanted an Electric type on my team, and I always prefer to get a flying type. I’ve already used Toucannon and Vikavolt in the Sun, so Oricorio is my saving grace because it’s BOTH TYPES! Also, if I need to, I can just give it some nectar and BOOM! New type! This is a really cool Pokemon, because it’s so accessible and so versatile!

    Lycanrock (Dusk Form)
    Reason: I used to HATE Lycanrock, but then I saw my little sister using the Midday form of Lycanrock, and I realized how cool it was! However, I wasn’t really sure which from I wanted since the only difference is the look, but then Dusk Form was announced. I think that I might as well, and that it’s not something that I can ‘just get later’ like the other Lycanrock forms. Also it looks the coolest!

    Salazzle
    Reason: I believe that for a strong team in Pokemon has to have the main three types: Fire, Grass, & Water. I have Water and Grass, but here’s fire! Now, I’m still conflicted on whether I want to play through Ultra Moon also and trade over a Totem-Sized Salazzle, but I’ll probably just use a normal one. Also, I really like Salazzle, and I think that the typing can work really well!

    Kommo-o
    I never usually use Pseudo-Legendaries, but I think that Kommo-o looks like a fun challenge to raise! With it’s Dragon/Fighting typing, I think that it helps really bring the team together as the final member. It also has an exclusive Z-Move, which I think is also pretty good, you know?

    So yeah! Tell me what you think of my team in the comments, and also share your own! Thanks for reading!

    • Agent F

      Wow I really like your team and your choice to use Ash Gren! As these are meant to be challenging games you have plenty of firepower to get you through!
      Awesome team!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I used Decidueye, Salazzle, Kommo-o and Midday Lycanroc in Sun and they were all great teammates. Oricorio Pom-pom is my least favourite Oricorio.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Cool team :00

      I’ve used most of them and enjoyed them all, so I’m sure you’ll enjoy them too! None of them really caused any issues besides Oricorio early game, but once it gets Revelation Dance it’s amazing

  • Armaggedon16

    The Totem for kiawe’s trial is actually pretty tough to beat.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Good to hear. The original was a bit too eaay

  • Unseelie Fairy

    If you’re interested in the photo comp or the tourney, hit me up under this comment with which one you’re interested in, just so I can draw out plans

    • Agent F

      Uhh I’d be interested in both. Especially the first hall of famer one.
      They’re both really cool ideas!

    • Why not both

      • Unseelie Fairy

        You can comment both 👀

        • Ok I comment both

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Yee

    • MenacingCascoon

      Boooth.
      Im game what if I use Legends as my in game team?

      • then dont

      • Unseelie Fairy

        What legends you planning to use? I’ll be happy including the weaker ones

        • MenacingCascoon

          Nagandal

          • Unseelie Fairy

            It’s only 540BST and I know quite a few people are planning on using it, so I’m on the line on it being used but it’s leaning towards yes.

            Silvally would also be used if it wasn’t like specifically competitively resetted. Like if you just traded over a random silvally it’s a-okay.

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Hereeeee

    • Sunniera

      In case you didn’t see my other comment explaining my late response, include me in the tourney.

  • You guys remember how the entralink let you kind of sorta but not really play with your friends?

    I would love that idea to be expanded into full multiplayer

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Pokémon MMORPG one day

      Pls

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Pls no

        It’s too expensive to make and maintain an MMORPG alongside other reasons

        • Unseelie Fairy

          But it’s one of the best selling games of all time 😢

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Sorry GF won’t take such high risks ¯_(ツ)_/¯

          • Unseelie Fairy

            It’d probably be a spin off by another country that actually has experience with the genre

      • EarthenWarrior

        I get a mix of SAO and wow
        I mean Wow has its own Pokemon esque thingy called pet battles

        They have their own “types” each with a weakness and passive ability
        Critter (can’t be stunned)

        Beast (raises attack below 50%)

        Flying (50% speed boost if at +50% Hp)

        Aquatic (lessens DOT effects)

        Mechanical (comes back to life after being killed with 25% hp)

        Undead (comes back to life after killed and is immortal for one turn)

        Magic (can’t be dealt more that 50% health from attacks)

        Elemental (Ignores harmful weather effects)

        Humanoid (recovers 10% if landed a blow)

        Dragonkin (raises attack power after bringing a opponent to less than 50%)

        • Unseelie Fairy

          You Earthen you interested in the competitions down below

          Also I think WOW/Pokémon would be my ideal PokéMMORPG

          • EarthenWarrior

            Maybe the photo thing, I vowed never to do tourneys here ever again

            And in Pet Battles my star is a thing called a Kun-Lai Runt

            Aka Slamhorn!
            https://d4rkb12ivmqp2.cloudfront.net/images/news/potm-kun-lai-runt_closeup.v10141.jpg

            Basically has a ice attack that causes chilled status and can you deep freeze that stuns chilled opponents and the Takedown that deals more damage to stunned opponents

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Okay, I’ll have you down the photo contest then! 😀

            So it’s kinda like a WOW goat/bull/Mamoswine? That’s cool

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I never got to do that. I can see multiplayer being interesting, though potentially annoying. Maybe team-ups for things like special bosses?

      • Well like… it was extremely limited and required two systems to work and only one player was really doing much.

        I think local multiplayer where you could get a team from the PC would be fun. Cutscenes would probably just ignore the second player

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    They should bring back the different angles shown when you heal your Pokemon in the center. ORAS was good with that

  • ShinyXatu

    Since I’m slowly becoming more independent and financially stable, I’m also slowly realizing that I can live out my dream of collecting rare video game consoles and other collectibles! As long as I don’t spend a stupid amount at once, of course. I’m currently looking to start with this bad boy: http://d2ydh70d4b5xgv.cloudfront.net/images/b/c/nintendo-game-boy-advance-sp-pokemon-center-achamo-orange-torchic-in-stock-5dbd11a40f0eb2f6a72f0f67d706f6d7.jpg

    • Chaos

      Man, that looks awesome. Would love to play an old school Pokemon game on one of those. Emulators just don’t have the same feeling.

      • ShinyXatu

        It really is cool! It also has an engraved Torchic on the front. Pokémon Center also made one for Rayquaza as well as Charizard and Venusaur for FRLG. I’d like to have a full boxed collection of these someday.

    • PokeVeteran

      theres a pokeball theme 2ds as well

      • ShinyXatu

        I have that one! I also have a Pikachu 3DS XL that has some sentimental value.

        • PokeVeteran

          Awesome i have my eye on that one !!

    • EarthenWarrior

      My dream is to blow up the world err create videogame strategy book library or bookcase

    • zess

      It would be nicer if it a had a black dot on the back…

    • Ultron

      Oh that’s an awesome edition of the SP!

  • PokeVeteran

    so im looking to buy a 2dsxl since its cheaper than replacing my 3ds, but i just realized they dont use the same memory cards. is there a work around for this? my AS is currently on my SDHC card…

    • ShinyXatu

      Does it use a microSD card? If so, there’s a way to transfer between normal SD cards and microSD cards using a PC and normal-to-micro adapter. I think I’m right about this.

      • PokeVeteran

        yes the 2ds use micro i would just need a way to transfer the data off of the sdhc into the micro sd

  • Unseelie Fairy

    https://discord.gg/FhjfK4 – Discord for those competitions I’m hoping to do like once every month or two? It’ll be especially helpful if I can get two or three volunteers to help organise competitions and stuff 😀

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      But like

      People who want to “see” the competitions can join or

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Only participants because the results will be posted here anyway

        • Unseelie Fairy

          But it can be participants for either contest

    • Agent F

      I’d be happy to help dude just let me know what you want doing! :]

  • EarthenWarrior

    So after watching the oranguru dub it got me a’thinkin

    Do you think they’ll ever expand on Bewear’s relationship with Team Rocket? She’s good as a running gag but I wish they did a bit more on her character, like why she bails them out every time and maybe a little backstory or even a confirmed gender and even using an actual move (Unless you count its death hug as Bind)

    I wonder if Team Rocket ever does steal a Z-Ring WHAT IF BEWEAR IS THE ONE THEY USE FOR BLACK HOLE ECLIPSE via Brutal Swing

    • I still think Mimikyu will use it with some move (Idk what)

      And yeah I think Beware does need more character, and I thought it was confirmed Female?

  • Govnah
    • I saw it last night. I find it funny that Zeno shares a VA with Tohru (Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid).

      • Govnah

        I just hope they dont ruin Limit break X survivor

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Thinking of using a Duskanroc with its’ Z-crystal, Stone Edge, Drill Run, Accelerock and maybe Iron Head? Also probably Jolly.

    • PokeVeteran

      Sounds good maybe change accelerock? i hate having multiple of the same type moves on one mon

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I would but I like the priority. I guess Sucker Punch is an option but not sure it’s much better.

        • PokeVeteran

          That sounds better and would be good depending on the rest of your team

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I’m not sure, no Dark type yet but I might add Incineroar. My only issue with Sucker Punch is the lack of STAB and necessity of prediction.

          • PokeVeteran

            Incineroar would be a good addition especially with the new moves, w hats your team so far

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Mimikyu, Araquanid, Alolan Raichu and Duskanroc. If I do go with Incineroar I will probably need another Special Attacker because only having 1 might be problematic. I’m trying to stick to gen 7 introduced stuff and ones I’ve not used before.

          • PokeVeteran

            Okay that makes a lot of sense

          • Taum2

            Ribombee is great!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It is, I have used it already though.

          • Taum2

            It is such an underrated pokemon tho.. Did you found what you want to use yet?

          • Taum2

            As a special attacker

    • Agent F

      Awesome!
      I think I’m gonna be using it too!

  • ShinyXatu

    So will this QR code work to get the movie Pikachu when the games come out? I saw another picture posted with the exact same QR code, which makes me think they’re all the same.
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5af953e3e61144929f5da1da19c155a97dcb8d6945a3f6cb583c9c3810899d5d.png

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Probably. Tbh I’m just happy I got mine and the promo card and enjoyed the movie.

      • Agent F

        I didn’t get anything strangely.
        I was in Manchester Vue Printworks for the movie.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          When did you go? Did you ask about it? I went to Crawley Cineworld for mine.

          • Agent F

            I never asked but they never said anything. I guess I should have but I was getting late.
            Nvm the movie was what I came for and I enjoyed it :]

          • Agent F

            And I went for the Nov 5 showing!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yeah see I made sure to ask before the movie to make complete certain I got it (which was very difficult for me to do because no confidence). Did you see anyone else there with them? It could be due to where you saw it, but I can’t be sure on that. At least you enjoyed the movie. I have seen the card on ebay if you really want it, but I think people are charging extortionately for it.

  • Govnah
    • Monkeyfuzz

      They fused? Permanently through Potara or can they separate?

      • zess

        Mortal’s only last an hour in a Portara fusion

        • Monkeyfuzz

          They changed it? I haven’t watched Super yet, last I saw in DBZ it was meant to be permanent but Buus’ insides made them separate.

          • zess

            Maybe they changed it then but now I’ll look it up just to be certain brb🤓

          • zess

            “Despite their innocuous appearance, the Potara are an incredible magical item, worn only by the Kaiōshin, and those who attend to the Kaiōshin. When two individuals wear a single earring in the opposite ear — one in the left and right respectively — they will be pulled together, before merging into a singular entity. While with the Fusion technique, the post-merged clothing is of the Metamorese uniform, the Potara fusion not only mixes the two people’s bodies together, but also their clothing as well.[1] Potara have the capability of permanently fusing the two sources in the state that they were in before they transferred. Also, the general effect of the earrings is far greater than the Fusion that the Metamorese created, and it also lacks the time limit the aforementioned dance possesses. The resulting fusion will have the power of both fusees multiplied by each other.[4] By Vados’ admission, a Potara fusion is greater than the sum of their parts, and the fusion increases their power “tens of times”.[5] However, those merged by the earrings will never split again, with the exception of mortals.”
            http://dragonballuniverse.wikia.com/wiki/Potara

          • Monkeyfuzz

            So I guess it they changed it and explained it as the Kais didn’t know? Also there goes my hope of SSGSS Gogeta.

          • zess

            Gogeta still might be possible the the kais in the tournament of power were throwing their portara’s into the ring or contemplating doing so. It might happen as a last ditch effort to win

          • Monkeyfuzz

            That wouldn’t be Gogeta though, it would be Vegito.

          • zess

            Oh yeah I forgot Gogeta is through the fusion dance and Vegito is through potara

      • Govnah

        Potara. so its permanent. sorry if i spoiled 🙁

  • EarthenWarrior

    So I think my team isn’t gonna be that much different than my original team

    Incineroar
    Flare Blitz, Darkest Lariate, Leech Life, Drain Punch

    Lycanroc D
    Rock Slide, Accelerock, Crunch, Iron Tail

    Kommo-o
    Clanging Scales, Close Combat, Flash Cannon, Flamethrower

    I’m fighting the urge to not use Crabominable or Mudsdale or Golisopod but I love them so much….

    Bewear, Pallossand and Vikavolt might make the cut but it depends if I find the others first

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Why both Leech Life and Drain Punch?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Better than nuthin, maybe Acrobatics since my Litten learned it early

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It gets Earthquake, Bulk-Up, Fake Out (through breeding), Thunder Punch, Knock Off, probably other stuff. I’d keep Drain Punch and leave out Leech Life as it covers anything Bug is strong against anyway.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I don’t care I mean long term ok but really it’s gonna be
            Fire Fang
            Bite
            Double Kick
            TM

          • Unseelie Fairy

            > Fire Fang
            > Eww

          • EarthenWarrior

            At least I’m thinking practically

            It’s not like I’m getting any better moves the minute I get my Litten

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            Just use a lot of mantine surf and you can get it some decent moves at the move tutors across the region

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Hey, I was meaning to ask you, is the Duskanroc set I put below any good? I’d like the most competitively useful set I can run but probably without Stealth Rock.

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            Huh? Repost if its okay, no idea where it is

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Duskanroc with its’ Z-crystal
            Stone Edge
            Drill Run
            Accelerock
            and maybe Iron Head?
            Also probably Jolly.

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            For a lycan this set is nearly perf
            Personally I’d reccomend an entirely different mon but this is about as good as roc gets

          • Monkeyfuzz

            What would you change?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Flame Charge doesn’t miss and boosts speed, and you get it halfway through Akala so if you’re not overlevelling you should have it and Fire Fang around the same amount of time

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Fire Punch is available island 2 I think.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Vikavolt is amazing dude, you have to try it

    • Ultron

      Um…use vikavolt

  • Why does the week of USUM have to suck and stress me out?

    I have an essay that’s half done due tomorrow morning and no clue where I’m supposed to turn it in (and teacher says because she is on vacation rn she won’t answer e-mails), Vocab work due tomorrow as well, Poster project alsi for English due Monday (there goes my weekend for USUM), Chem. Vocab due tomorrow, Chem.worksheet due tomorrow, 2 math pages due tomorrow, Walking cycle animation due 12/1 that I’m not at all even close to done and Design Project due by at Monday at the latest or I lose credit

    I feel like school needs to lay off the pressure instead of trying to take me and push me to my limits of stress (Just thinking about it has given me a splitting headache), I guess it’s all in the sake of getting the game, push through the abrasive pain of school for the reward of a game (that will drain alot of my funds and leave me with little money for the holidays)

    • Unseelie Fairy

      School >>>>>>> Game 100%. That’s where nearly all your focus should be rn until all that stuff is out the way.

      • Your right, but I love it how they decide this is the week to dump more HW then ever on me

        • Unseelie Fairy

          High school’s tough, it’s hard but it is how it is. It’ll all be worth it if you endure and put the effort in

    • Should add for those in Europe who have other ways of putting dates, that’s December 1st, not January 12th for the project

    • Agent F

      Relax. Take a deep breath. Life isn’t meant to be easy all the time. Sometimes you have to battle through the storm!
      School is your priority. Make a plan and get it all done and then you can enjoy USUM!! :]

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Sorry to hear that. I hope things improve. Just remember there is no rush to play the new game, it will still be there when you do have free time. Try to keep a level head, working yourself up over it will make things worse. Maybe you can ask for work extensions if it is all getting on top of you? If it ends up burning you out then it’s no good either really.

    • Homework is honestly pointless in my eyes. It just eats away at your time (Granted, I don’t really have a right to complain since I’m a huge procrastinator).

  • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

    I think Pokemon has officially brainwashed me


  • I really shouldn’t be laughing at this. Fair warning if you’re squeamish around broken bones or something.

    • I think I’ve been mentally scarred by this meme

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Sometimes I forget that Mudsdale can have Own Tempo as an ability……why you’d want that I have no idea, but oh well. Own Tempo isn’t bad, but Stamina is Mudbray/Mudsdale’s bread and butter.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I wanted to experiment with a Skill Link Rock Blast, maybe like Toucannon or Cloyster to beef its defense sky high

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Ideally you’d use something with a low attack stat.

        • EarthenWarrior

          It’s rock blast and it gets weaker with each shot) raising Def to max

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I know but you want to minimise the damage Mudsdale takes anyway due to lack of recovery options.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Also juts saw the PGL art for Naganadel and I must say DAAAAAAAAAAAAMN that S$%t is imposing. Such a cool thing. Really wanting to use it, but I know it’s late game thingy.

    Deers, a little oricoria told me shinies are easier to find in ultra space, can you be deers and expalin the deers and doe’s? Or… Dos and don’ts?
    Buck my life, my deerisms will doe me in!

    • Deerlia

      Sorry, pardon my kalosian…

      • EarthenWarrior

        I won’t *Pulls out a large axe*

    • Monkeyfuzz

      If an ultra wormhole has a certain appearance it will definitely be shiny, if it lacks that appearance it definitely won’t. The further you go into the wormhole the higher chance a shiny one will appear. I’m not entirely sure what the appearance is doe. This only applies to non-legendaries/UBs. Legendaries have the usual 1/4096 or 3/4096 with the shiny charm. At least this is as far as I understand it so far.

    • Agent F

      Glad to hear it :]

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Started Boku no Hero Academia, 5 episodes in and enjoying it so far. It’s the first anime I’ve watched in a really long time and I’m glad it’s a good one.

    • Nice. I love My Hero Academia, it’s a great show. I actually own the first volume of the manga. I’m glad you’re starting to pick up anime again after awhile, since there are some really good ones out there

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I was debating if I should watch the dub to ease myself in but decided I might as well just try it subbed and see how I went. I am doing OK.

        • Personally, I prefer sub, but the dub is good too. I’m so hyped for Season 3

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Apart from a few things I always prefer sub over dub when it comes to anime.

    • Josei & the Nekomata

      Good to know. It’s on my queue, but I gotta get through other shows first.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I really need to get back into shows. I haven’t watched One Piece in so long for personal reasons and I just need to start catching up. I think Tokyo Ghoul might be on my list too along with Attack On Titan.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      You watching dub or sub? I assume sub seeing as you called it “Boku no Hero” rather than “My Hero”. Either way it’s a great series and you’ll be glad you’ve started it.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Subs, I generally prefer them. The only one I really don’t like is DBZ but I think that’s because I grew up with the dub.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Some subs can be fine, but dubs can be really REALLY good sometimes. Like you said DBZ is one of the better ones. Funimation and Viz Media do a real bang up job of dubbing. They’re not the top companies in the industry for nothing after all.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yeah I am not against dubs as long as they are good. I think 4kids damaged alot of peoples’ perceptions of dubbed anime, not that they were all bad (some of the voice acting is still really good). I think sometimes dubs change names or pronunciations sound wrong and that I dislike.

  • Josei & the Nekomata

    Dang I miss the DexNav too. Wonder if Rotom would improve or worsen that feature.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I think it could improve it by giving us more details on the ‘mon.

      • Josei & the Nekomata

        Which details? It seemed pretty comprehensive in ORAS.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Like exactly where high IVs were on the ‘mon, maybe the nature it would have? If you are using a synchronizer it might be helpful to know if it has worked or not before capture.

    So I updated my phone 7 hours ago and right after I did that I could not access Pokejungle through my mobile anymore. Not sure if this is an issue for anyone else with the latest Iphone update. Please mention it if this is true for anyone else. Also @detoxic:disqus, because I could not access this site i could not express my interest in your tourney earlier. Due to time constraints I don’t think that I will be able to do the photo competition, but I would be more than glad to compete in the tourney if there is still space. Please let me know.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Weird. I’ll have to check it out myself. I think I still need to update to 11.11 or whatever it is so maybe it’ll do it to me too. Kind of hope it doesn’t tho haha

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Awesome! If I may suggest something tho. Her skin tone and hair are a little to bright and similar in shading and they make her face hard to depict. I would either recommend adding a very slight amount of ling or changing the shading of her hair or skin color slightly. That way we can see her beautiful face better. Otherwise this is great and good job!!

    • I’d say practice color theory. It’s sort of hard to tell what’s going on. Also don’t feel the need to color the lines the same color as the thing they are surrounding. Usually a darker shade of that color with a slightly different shade usually looks good!

      • Deerlia

        Sound advice, i’ll incorporate that idea into future works, thanks deer~

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I swear to god they better bring back regular fishing in gen 8. Restricting it the way they did this gen was dumb (encounter rates aside) The chaining feature wasn’t even a big feature to take out either! They could have easily left it in and it would have been no big deal on their end. It’s not like one of the bigger features they take out to cycle new ones in such as dexnav and walking Pokemon. It’s such a side mechanic it made no sense to take out.

  • Thanks for the encouragement earlier and I have to say after that and going to robotics I feel a little bit better and got the Chem, Math and almost done my essay (It wasn’t easy after staring at a screen for an hour before getting a spark of inspiration)

    And side note, my crush was actually looking for people to chat with and asked for #’s So if she messages me I literally will lose all my stress and just go balistically happy

  • Monkeyfuzz

    So I actually played a little Breath of the Wild, something I haven’t done in a couple of months, at first it was just me dicking around with Magnisis and a metal crate then I only went around wearing the hero’s clothing and whatever weapons I could find (which came to a staggering halt when a random Silver Moblin nearly 2 shot me) then I did my all time favorite pastime Lynel Hunting

    But one thing that was important, I saw all three dragons in my travels tonight and each one of them just reawakened the long forgotten spark which makes me truly love and appreciate how enchanting and bewildering this game truly is

  • Dicie

    Part of me is surprised that almost everything except Ultra Necrozma’s appearance was covered before launch. Due to the game leaks, it’s confirmed that there’s nothing else new. Lots are holding onto hope to a Day One patch that adds a bunch of new stuff…
    But we all know that isn’t gonna happen.

    • ShinyXatu

      I seriously hope you aren’t serious when you say that “lots” of people are hoping for a day one patch with new content. The chances of that are lower than me getting struck by lightning five times in a row and getting a girlfriend on the same day.

      • Deerlia

        I did win the lotto, maybe i should play again tomorrow and see if it’s true…

      • Dicie

        Poor wording on my part. I have seen quite a few 4chan threads with said hopes, however.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      True, same happened is SM where there were barely anything new that wasn’t covered by trailers, like I wish this game had more surprises 😐

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        That’s ironic because fans were saying how we had NO info at all just two months or so ago

        • Yeah I think GF’s mindset was
          When USUM was announced: “Well we spoiled everything ahead of SuMo, let’s give them suspense to make up for it.”
          Also at the beginning: “Pokken is coming sooner so let’s put the focal point on that for now then wait for this game.”

          After 2 months: “Well fans hate us now, lets give a lot of spoils.”

          I kinda hope Pokémon Switch leaves alot in the dark before the game like reveal, a fourth of the Pokémon and new features

          • Armaggedon16

            Not really. The reason there was no news was because there was nothing to show.

  • Gamer Dragon07

    I started my pokemon Silver journey very late but I did it. I beat the Elite 4 for the 1st time through with no trouble. I re-used some of the pokemon back in the original Silver copy but it’s for nostalgia sake. Not sure if I’ll have enough time to speed through Kanto and Red before USUM comes out but I’ll try.
    Here’s my team that I used:
    Watergator the Feraligatr ( male, was part of my original team )
    Slash, Ice Punch, Bite, Surf
    Beebop the Ampharos ( female, was part of original team but with different name )
    Thunder Punch, Strength, Light Screen, Thunder Wave
    Sunny the Umberon ( lucky to get as a female, wasn’t part of the original team but I remember this pokemon so fondly because I originally wanted a Espeon and then my kid self forgot that eevee has to evolve during the day time )
    Return, Confuse Ray, Bite, Feint Attack
    Aero the Lugia ( part of my original Team, nowadays I don’t use legendaries on my team but I was a kid back then and used them up until BW/B2W2 )
    Aeroblast, Waterfall, Fly, Recover
    Flutters the Venomoth ( male )
    Psychic, Leech Life, Gust, Sleep Powder
    Dori the Dragonite ( female )
    Dragon Breath, Fire Punch, Thunder Wave, Wing Attack

  • belmad

    It’s sad that they are mostly working for legendaries and UBs.

    86 Pokemon in Gen 7, 23 are UBs and legendaries, that’s 27%!

    Previous generations:
    Gen 6: 8%: 72 New Pokemon, 6 legendaries
    Gen 5: 8%: 156 New Pokemon, 13 legendaries
    Gen 4: 14%: 107 New Pokemon, 15 legendaries
    Gen 3: 7%: 135 New Pokemon, 10 legendaries
    Gen 2: 3%: 100 New Pokemon, 3 legendaries
    Gen 1: 1%: 151 new Pokemon, 2 legendaries

    They had good trend with Gen 5 and 6. Highest was Gen 4; people always say it was because Sinnoh was the home of many legends and myths. Now we have 27%, almost twice of the Sinnoh.

    • Deerlia

      It’s sad but true…
      People said unova was too much, then look what happened, less pokemon, more legendaries…

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Unova had 156 new pokemon?

    Does anyone have HA Murkrow in a special ball? i’m looking for one

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Fairies should be weak against Ice, Fire and Bug because they already are in folklore

    • zess

      I’m still waiting for more fairy types that aren’t that cutesy stereotype like maybe a few goblins,trolls, ect.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Fairies are widely associated with feminine qualities so most of them will always have that cute factor.

        I’m still keeping my hopes up for a Dark/Fairy imp or gargoyle tho

      • Armaggedon16

        Yea that’s the sort of fairies I wanted when fairy was first announced. I guess The tapus are a good example of what fairy types should be, dieties or creatures from folklore/myths

    • Shady

      Or at least make ice type resist to fairy.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      They’re not going to be because all these types are also super effective on Grass. It’s counter productive to the Poison buff.

      If anything, it should be Psychic that gains an advantage over it.

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        On the other hand ghost and dark can use some offensive difference

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Neither of those types need a buff and are already differed by their defensive properties and movepools

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Oh I know, it just feels weird. I kinda hope there’s more effects that get added to them though. I forget , are ghosts immune to shadow tag?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Ghosts are immune to being trapped, Darks are immune to Prankster

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Huh… thought it was shadow tag… that’s interestin

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Most psychic types are based on humanoids. Dont think it would make sense if they have an advantage over magical creatures

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      Dark and Fairy should be SE against each other

  • Unseelie Fairy

    How to fix the type chart

    – Rock resists Bug
    – Fairy no longer resists Bug
    – Ice resists Water and Ground
    – Never give Steel another resistance again. Like ever. Just leave Steel

    • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

      I agree with all of this except for making ice resist ground and I think it should resist flying because barely anything resists it

    • Chaos

      Steel to regain its resistance to Ghost and Dark.

      Ice to resist Dragon and Flying

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        We do not need steel getting more resistances

    • Armaggedon16

      No no no

      -Ice resists water,grass,flying
      -Fairy is weak to ghost

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Grass needs nerfs like Steel needs another 6 resistsances

    I’m conflicted…..do I just get US or do I get the duel pack and get them both? On one hand I’m not sure I need both and may never play through UM if I get them both, but on the other hand they’re the last 3ds games ever so maybe I get the duel pack as a special goodbye? I just don’t know………

    • Just get one. If you’ve played sun and moon then there really isn’t much point getting both

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Ah but you forget….I’m a Pokemon whore. There really wasn’t much point in playing both X AND Y, but I did that anyway……

        • Yeah but like.., there are so many games that came out this year you should save that 40$ for something else instead of the same experience you are going to have

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Ugh……….but I have the money!!! There are games that regardless of me buying both I’ll be getting no matter what so it’s hard for me……I’m just too much of a whore for Pokemon………XD

          • If you haven’t played Samus Returns yet, it’s a better purchase I’d say

            Gonna get that for Xmas. Already have Mario,Zelda, and Sonic Mania…………Hmmm trying to think of any other major games.

      • Fedex (Agent F)

        If I got it early I’d still wait till 17th!

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Why………………….?

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Well for one im rushing through alpha sapphire and secondly guess it wouldn’t feel right without everyone else!

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            That’s fair I guess. Finish AS! It’s a fun game in general.

          • Unseelie Fairy
          • Fedex (Agent F)

            It really is I love Hoenn, I’m just at the climax can’t wait for delta and last min legendary catching. Then I’ll make final preps for Alola.
            ORAS kicks a$$ even though the dude above seems to think otherwise ☝️ :]

          • Govnah

            Nah it’s just Trash

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            That’s your opinion friend :]
            I for one absolutely love the game.

          • Congrats you learned what an opinions is

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Thanks! Now next mission is for you to learn the definition of “Fact” 😛
            You have till the 17th!

          • A fact is a statement that can not be disputed

            So I was right

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Well done. 10 points to Slytherin! 👏

          • Armaggedon16

            Factm USUM is a boring cash grab. Am i doing it right?

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Lets wait and see. At this moment they look promising to me

          • Armaggedon16

            I don’t have to. Halfway through Akala buddy 🙂

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Woohoo you caught me by surprise! Have fun I guess 😛

          • Armaggedon16

            I wish I was 🙂

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            still have post game RR etc to look forward to!

          • Armaggedon16

            If I make it that far :]

          • Monkeyfuzz

            You should probably state that it’s your opinion as obviously not everyone agrees, nor do they have to.

          • Govnah

            Most people would agree

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Maybe for XY but I doubt for ORAS dude

          • Govnah

            Nah alot of people dont like ORAS.

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            I’ve seen a lot of positive feedback too, overwhelmingly positive.
            Except for obvious lack of BF which I myself was unhappy at, at first.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            How do you know? Have you done a survey of everyone that has played them? You are more than welcome to dislike them of course.

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            They haven’t at all. I have seen a lot of positive feedback for ORAS across the fandom. Understandably so, they’re great games.
            Even ultron agrees :]

          • Govnah

            they are really bad remake and retelling of the gen 3 games, Gen 2 remakes did alot better at capturing the heart that the games its remade after brought

          • This

            ORAS is less than the sum of its parts.

          • Govnah

            its only considered good because its still freshly new. in a few years nobody will care about ORAS

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I agree HGSS are better. That still doesn’t mean some people can’t like them.

          • Govnah

            Im not saying you cant like them, im just saying your liking trash in my eyes then

          • Monkeyfuzz

            That’s fair enough.

          • When did we ever say that people aren’t allowed to like ORAS

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Constantly calling them trash and saying people are wrong for liking them pretty much implies it. At no point did I suggest anyone is saying they aren’t allowed, I am saying some would disagree that they are trash.

          • Govnah

            I mean Alpha Sapphires initials are AS and you cant have Trash without AS

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Well said. I am glad you can see past the bushes and fences 😛
            Don’t worry. I will continue to enjoy ORAS, others are free to disagree!

          • Uh? No? Jokes aside saying something is trash is automatically a matter of opinion. It’s saying “I don’t like this thing”

            No one is actually saying people can’t like it.

          • It’s a fact though

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Bigly.

          • Armaggedon16

            Obviously it’s an opinion.an opinion i agree with. He didn’t ask anyone to agree to him :/

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I know but the general feeling whenever these games are brought up is if you don’t agree they are trash you are wrong. I just meant that he was stating it as if it was factual for everyone. Had he just put imo then this wouldn’t have been the case.

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            👏👏👏

          • Govnah

            Imasaso they are trash

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Idk what that means but OK.

          • Govnah

            In mine arma seraph and stars opinion

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh alright. No doubt many others also share that opinion. You must now scour the earth in search of all the others to add to your acronym, it is your quest.

          • Govnah

            Shet man, enjoy finding others to add to your opinion because clearly more people agree with me more

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I’m really not being serious. I hope you aren’t taking offence here. Now I feel like anything I say may be coming off wrong :/

          • Govnah

            im not taking offense

          • Armaggedon16

            As if anyone else’s opinion is important enough to add to the acronym

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Hahaha :]

          • Armaggedon16

            Eh their opinion doesn’t affect your opinion who cares if there’s an imo or not

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It would just help to not make others feel bad I guess. Some people are more easily influenced than others.

          • The delta episode is the worst part of ORAS. It’s an incredibly boring fetch quest. It’s only cool at the end when you’re catching the legends and flying to space and stuff

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            That’s your opinion and I respect it. There is of course room for improvement in everything.
            I for one really like the delta, the end sequences as you mentioned as well as the extras we are treated too.
            I can’t wait 2 experience it again!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I agree with this, I feel like there was much more potential to the Delta episode and it was largely squandered.

    • Ultron

      Oh that’s a huge bummer!

      • Fedex (Agent F)

        Haha it was. Granted the package was strangely large but that’s nothing new with Amazon :]

  • Govnah

    For anyone who has a PS4. On black Friday at best buy Persona 5 will be $30 online and in store. thats a really good price for the game

    • Monkeyfuzz

      When is black friday?

      • Govnah

        Nov 24th

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Oh OK, I ask because I think we have it here even though we don’t have Thanksgiving.

          • Govnah

            yea who knows but keep an eye on the playstation store if anything

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I don’t know if it’s the same for you, but in Scotland we definetly had it

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It’s an excuse for shops to sell crap in the guise of a bargain, I’m sure we have it.

    • ShinyXatu

      I definitely want it, but won’t they make a Persona 5 Gold or something like that?

      • Govnah

        Persona 5 Crimson because its themed with Red not Gold but that wont be for years tho

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Move Tutors are available as soon as you get to them and have BP right? I think this could be quite beneficial. In previous games we’ve always had to wait until post game for the majority of tutors, which whilst good for competitive does mean some people probably won’t have bothered with them before.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Isn’t the problem often them not being around until you beat the game? Not that you can get to them and they are just not available? I mean like in ORAS the tutors weren’t available until you got to the Battle Resort. Are the tutors found earlier in the game this time?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        That’s what I meant. There are supposedly one Tutor on each Island so I was seeing if anyone knew if we could access them immediately.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Ah ok gotcha

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    ORAS was a game that managed to wrap everything I liked about third gen into a fancy bag before violently slapping me across the face and taunting me with said bag all while violently shoving shitt down my throat..

    Also it had dexnav

    • Armaggedon16

      Don’t forget soaring

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Lets be honest, the only reason soaring was even somewhat relevant was because eliminated the need for a fly mon

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      The best part is how they blatantly ignored anything new that Emerald introduced

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        iTs NoT a EmErAlD rEMAkE

        I hate that excuse so much

  • Govnah

    USUM is what Sun and moon should of been IMO
    The only good thing about ORAS was Dexnav and soaring IMO
    X/Y was just a tech demo made into a real game IMO

    • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

      I agree with all of this
      USUM is without a doubt the best Pokemon game on the 3ds….. even though SuMo should have been USUM

      • Govnah

        X/Y was more of test the hardware of the 3ds at the time

        • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

          It kinda reminds me of a test that wasn’t proofread
          It’s utterly disgusting and how it went by without being changed is beyond me

    • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

      You also forgot the team leader remixes which were LITERALLY the one good remix in the game
      And Mega altaria/gallade as a whole

    • Armaggedon16

      Usum is a better sm and i liked sm. My problem is I’ll have to play 70% of the game before i see an actual thing that’s new.

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        ^^^
        My biggest issue of the game is WHY THE HELL DIDN’T ULTRA RECON GET A BIGGER ROLE

        • Armaggedon16

          If only they played a larger role during the first two islands the whole game would have felt a lot more fresh

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            I hate to say this but their role in the later portion of the game isn’t very relevant either
            But they still do have a bigger role than about half of gen 4’s cast

            Also the most amazing line in the game is still there

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    Sometimes I really go in on insulting Kanto and Johto for being full of flaws

    Within a minute or two I remember Kalos exists and begin to thank the great Araquanid in the sky that Kanto and Johto aren’t that level

    • Fedex (Agent F)

      In what sense?Region design, complexity, originality, execution??

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Like… literally every one of these things.
        The region is bland in 99% of the areas outside of like Anistar. Its story is barebones and the villian is literally ginger wolverine hitler. It’s not even remotely complex. There’s a total of one thing I like about X and Y (AZ) and it’s not nearly enough to account for the trillions of flaws of this game

        • Fedex (Agent F)

          I agree about story but then again im sure a Z version would have fixed that.
          Region imo was awesome versatile and reflected the beauty of theme and france very well. I thought it was like art, simply but beautifully executed.
          Laverre city was probably my fav. location!

          • Govnah

            Z would of been its own story, X/Y would of still had a bland story

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            I felt the evil team coulda been executed better, Zygarde was a big loss but I enjoyed the friendly relations and adventure this game projected!
            Ofc that’s my opinion.

        • Fedex (Agent F)

          Also Kanto and Johto as beloved as they are have many flaws and only together do they feel like a region that deliver on the same scale as latter regions!

          • “Many flaws”

            You keep saying that but you never actually elaborate

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            If you ask kindly then I’ll happily elaborate.

          • I just did

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            I’m sure everyone agrees to that.
            Regarding the regions both, Johto especially are beloved to me however have certain flaws most likely due to being early attempts from GF.
            Both were extremely small in size. I would describe as a walk in the park. This made the experience feel quick and kept a unsatisfied taste in my mouth wanting more.

            Secondly lack of diverse terrain, locations and structures especially in comparison to latter regions.
            This makes exploration more repetitive, less exciting and interesting.

            Johto was very cramped. Although Johto had cool side quests such as the Pokeathlon and BC, Kanto was very limited in things to do.

            The regions also didn’t impress in availability of mons and Johto was a testament to this.

            I felt like Kanto lacked identity, whereas Johto did have some imo

            Of course I love both regions but I feel simply put they both need each other.
            Whereas Hoenn, Unova, Kalos and Alola can stand on their own feet.
            Each region posses diversity in terrain, design and have an identity unique to them. They’re all very big too.

          • Govnah

            U do realize the limitations is the reason the terrains weren’t different?

          • Govnah

            *werent

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            That could be a factor. That’s why I wish to see sequels to them on the switch.
            Another thing to remember is the regions were designed as such based on Japanese regions and I feel this was no must alimitation but also a design choice

          • Govnah

            how tf would u differentiate Snow and Grass on the gameboy?

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Simple. White and green tiles/colouring for GBA. Different textures if regular GB.
            Don’t forget we’ve had remakes on better engines.

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          *ejem* ᵗʰᵃᵗ’ˢ ʷʰʸ ᵃ ᶻ ᵛᵉʳˢᶦᵒⁿ ʷᵃˢ ⁿᵉᵉᵈᵉᵈ *ejem*

    • Chaos

      Ok seriously Kalos isn’t even that bad. Sometimes I think people over exaggerate simply because they can.

      To me personally Gen 6 introduced better Pokemon than Gen 7, and it also gave us better battle mechanics. Mega Evolution also trumps Z-moves and regionals put together.

      Ok story, evil team and region weren’t the best (still better than whatever Johto was) but for me the Gen 6 games had me invested in them for much longer than the Gen 7 ones.

      • Mega Evolution is awesome but it hardly plays a role in the main experience

        Very few trainers actually use it and most of its involvement in the plot is just talking about it

        • Chaos

          I’m talking about the overall experience of the game, not just the story. As I said Gen 6 had more new things introduced which kept me playing longer after the story had finished. With Gen 7 I got bored much more quickly…

          • Ok yes but what I’m saying is that mega evolution is hardly used at all in the entirety of the game. You have a small number you can use during the story then the quest to get them in the post game is tedious and you don’t really have much use for them at that point if you don’t do comp

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        I’m not exaggerating when I say that I myself found absolute not one thing to make me like Kalos

      • Unseelie Fairy

        I agree Gen 6 is overhated, but a lot of the stuff you listed is subjective so of course you’re going to see other people as hyperbolic.

        • Chaos

          Well opinions are by nature subjective.

          I picked out the things that were important to me that I liked (battle mechanics, breeding changes, Pokemon designs).

          Others pick out things that are important to them that they didn’t like (story, evil team, region design), which I do acknowledge.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Yeah but like what I was meaning is that Gen 6 being hated is mostly due to its subjective qualities than its objective qualities, thus why others are going to appear hyperbolic for you.

          • Chaos

            People saying there’s ‘not a single thing they like about Gen 6/Kalos’ is a hyperbolic statement regardless of their subjective opinions. Of course I don’t want to get into the nitty gritty but it’s the use of such absolute statements that kind of irks me.

            But hey, personally I have quite a few things I like about Gen 6.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Well I’m leaving. I just wanted everyone to respect the opinions of others and not be so negative all the time. I really don’t see the point in arguing with anyone anymore, I was just trying to make everyone feel valued but once again I’ve messed up and I’m really not good at talking to people at all. Hope everyone enjoys USUM or Pokemon Switch or something Pokemon related in future.

    • Fedex (Agent F)

      Nooo. Do you have any other means of contact such as social media?? I would like us to contiue rapport outside of the jungle if possible?
      I also want to say I respect you and have learnt the importance of being mature and respectful. You’re a great example and someone I admire!

    • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

      Whoahwhoahwhoahwhoah!! You’re a really cool person! It’s fine!!! Don’t worry!! Nobody here wants you to leave! We all like you! You’re legitimately one of the coolest people on the site!

    • Govnah

      just stay man. like theres gonna be arguments

    • Armaggedon16

      Heyy just because people have different viewpoints there’s no reason to leave and no one is asking you to. Pretty sure noone is mad at that little argumen so you should stay and focus on the things you like rather than people disliking things you like.

    • You don’t have to leave fam. Non of this is new. People are always talking about what they like and what they don’t like about Pokémon. It’s not a big deal

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I respect your choice if you leave, but I really think it’s not worth leaving over. It takes two to tango, and people who are on the other side often push the opposing viewpoint and either on purpose or by accident, incense the other side into retaliating. It’s a victimless war.

      • Fedex (Agent F)

        He wasn’t tango’ing at all.
        Rather he was attempting to promote respect between the fellow junglers and was standing up for what was right.
        There was no fight really but I understand why Monkeufuzz feels frustrated.

        • Govnah

          i was standing up for whats right too. ORtrASh are bad games

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Cool. Good for you 👍

        • Unseelie Fairy

          I never said Monkeyfuzz was one of the people tangoing. In fact, he was one of the most level headed, critical minded person on the site.

          ‘What is right’ is funny coming from you because you’re one of the sides I’m talking about. You talk about being mature but you don’t practice what you preach. I’ve seen absolutely no critical thinking coming from you at all, and that’s an important part of being mature. Being able to make, process, and accept criticism, and knowing when to hold back when criticism goes too far.

          I do feel some people here can get too negative, but too positive can be an issue too. These thugs are extremes and neither are preferable.

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            I agree I was very critical and imposing initially and in recent weeks.
            I have accepted my flaws and I am trying to correct myself.
            In recent days I have been nothing but respectful, patient despite many attempts to provoke me.
            I am accepting criticism and every thing you say.
            If you look at the convo below you will see I am being very patient and respectful. Others were being imposing but that’s fine.
            I’m focusing on improving myself.
            I only wish you can see that too, don’t mean any offence friend :]

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Look, I understand that a lot of people are bringing in opposing views, but from an outside perspective a lot of what you’re accusing them of is inverted in your own comments. You seem like a really nice person and I really don’t want to offend you either, it’s just that I feel like all the conflict is caused by people not stepping down and either ignoring or accepting criticisms, just bouncing them back.

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            I agree I was very poor at accepting that others may dislike what I like.
            What bothered me was certain Junglers were very aggressive and rude and this would go unnoticed.
            My mistake was I’d drop to their level and argue back.
            At this point I’m trying to just focus on myself and be cordial to all.
            If you look through last few days you’ll see that’s what I’ve been doing and others not mentioning names have tried to provoke me to no success.
            Anyways I feel that ur upset with me. Sorry dude please forgive me, lets be friends and work to making a better Jungle!

    • Ultron

      Aw, don’t go, monkeyfuzz 🙁

    • Wait, who’s arguing about what?

  • Team Flare is so confusing to me

    They’re basically a cult right? Then why are they so ridiculous and laughable? It’s like they wanted them to be comedic but that doesn’t work when they’re resetting the damn world

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Because they’re Pkm evil team and they need to be silly duh 😛

    • Fedex (Agent F)

      Haha yes I agrew they are very strange to say the least.
      Which was your fav team star??

  • Unseelie Fairy

    I think a lot of issues on this site is that people find it hard to accept others opinions and feel a heavy need to be validated by their opinions. And I understand. It’s a game you play for fun, not everyone here is wanting biting critical analysis or to have their opinions challenged. That’s fine. But you can’t just criticise one thing and not take criticism to your own thing.

    • Ultron

      Thats true. Everything is open to criticism.

      Except Sinnoh, which is flawless. (Just kidding… 😛 the music is pretty flawless though)

      • Fedex (Agent F)

        Haha I disagree. Jk 😛
        I respect you’re opinions but what I respect more is you’re very constructive and not imposing :]

        • Ultron

          I try but sometimes I can be an ass lol

          • Unseelie Fairy

            You are an ass sometimes. We’re all asses sometimes. Everyone is a bit of an ass. Butt that’s why we’re all so understanding of each other and why we help ourselves better each other.

          • Ultron

            Yeah, which is why it makes me sad when there are arguments and someone ends up leaving. Hopefully monkeyfuzz leaving isn’t permanent:/

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            I was a bigger ass at first. Sorry dude. Of course you won’t remember as I have casted a memory charm on you 😛

          • Govnah

            I member

          • Fedex (Agent F)

            Imperiooo!

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Yes you’re right, it’s getting tired seeing people desperately trying to change someone else’s opinion to their own, like, let them have their opinions man. And I’m not trying to target anybody in particulare, just saying that i’ve seen this kind of stuff more often lately

    • TheNintendoChip

      I think it’s the manner in which opinions are expressed. Sometimes, it comes across as heavy-handed.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        I do have to agree with this. In fact, I’ve been guilty of it before. I think it’s just human nature to be honest.

    • I think when the conversation is literally about the criticism of a thing, you have to be able to make admissions and have a deeper complex opinion than “I like this thing”

      That’s just a frustrating brick wall if you can’t actually discuss something in a negative light without right away saying “oh but it’s good”

    • Chaos

      I think it’s more so that when person A shares an opinion and then person b shares an opposing opinion, person A feels the need to respond with, ‘God, it’s only my opinion why are you attacking me.’

      Just what I’ve personally noticed.

  • Govnah

    so after alot of thinking, Im 90% sure im not getting Ultra Moon day 1

    • Fedex (Agent F)

      Because you’re getting…ultra sun!

      • Govnah

        no. im not getting any of them.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Why 🤔

      • Govnah

        doesn’t seem worth $40 to me. the games being third versions feel too similar only till the end game theres a giant gap in change of the story. its not worth the price of going through the same old boring s/m story as the only time s/m got interesting was towards the end

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    Okay so as y’all know USUM is adding move tutors
    So to kinda celebrate, here’s an analysis of some Alolan Pokemon I feel might become better competitively with these new additions.

    Note, I will not be including Dusk despite the fact that it is literally a reskin because its not been used in competitive yet.

    1. Araquanid- Although it doesn’t seem like much, Araquanid has sticky web via egg move now. Even though Galvantula is considered the premier sticky webber, Araquanid can make interesting use of it. Due to its ability to apply pressure and essentially force switches on certain mons. Most sets would only have three real essential moves with an open slot which allows sticky web to perfectly fit on Araquanid’s set and give it a supportive role. Additionally, it can counter a specific clown like Ultra Beast pretty well which allows it to get webs up on it with ease. I can see it rising a tier if it works any way like it does on paper.
    2. Decidueye- Although leaf storm is nice, it doesn’t do much for it. Shadow sneak is a miracle because it allows for a more reliable priority attack to take out certain pokemon that can set up on a sweeping decidueye simply because they could stall out its sucker punches. Although I overlooked it at first, tailwind might actually be its most important addition. With its ability to trap Pokemon, provide support with moves like defog, and even posses healing and momentum options in U-turn and Baton pass, Decidueye’s role as a supporter may become much more potent.
    3. Incineroar- As much as I hate this thing, I can’t deny that it got quite a bit to work with….. or will. I’ll be honest, this thing NEEDS intimidate desperately. But disregarding that, it got a lot. Thunderpunch is nice but its a tad weak. Fire punch is a welcome addition considering its only real physical fire move prior was flare blitz. Considering how slow it is, there’s a reason that move is never used. It also got superpower, iron head, and drain punch which all give it various minor bonuses but NOTHING compares to its biggest buff, knock off. This Pokemon has high attack, enough said. The ability for it to hit with a strong dark move that knocks the item off an opponent is invaluable considering it can flat out cripple some Pokemon. Although I don’t see its position changing until it receives intimidate, it becomes without a doubt a much stronger Pokemon.

    4-7 coming soon

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Araquanid and the two best starters getting love?

      Time to celebrate 🎉

      • Did Primarina die or something?

        • Unseelie Fairy

          GameFreak evidently thought so seeing as it got no tutor moves

        • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

          It got absolutely nothing, which to be fair, it was already and still will be good

  • Ok, what happened here? Something about arguing and how we can’t respect each other’s opinions? Someone please fill me in.

    Part 2!

    4. Lyranroc Midnight- Although Lycanroc cheeto form is the main lycanroc on everyone’s mind, Midnight has received some unexpected buffs.To help this bipedal edgy fursona out, it got some interesting moves. It has fire and thunder punch which are a fair amount stronger than the fang moves midday received. It has access to foul play which is useful and perhaps best of all, iron tail. Considering its no guard ability, it can make use of this otherwise unusable move with its 100 base damage and chance to lower defense. This makes Lycanroc midnight a decently large threat in the lower tiers considering its ability to hit fairies rather hard along with the rest of its decent coverage.
    5. Passimian- TALK ABOUT A BUFF HOLY SHITT! This thing… got so… so much… Lets list some moves. Iron head, seed bomb, super power, knock off, electroweb… for… some reason, drain punch, gunk shot. DAMN! This thing got literally everything it could have wanted! I can easily see this thing rising a tier or two with these buffs… coverage, recovery, knock off… this thing seriously got every possible thing it could have wanted and actually has a proper speed tier to make use out of all these things… unfortunately it is missing one thing… its hidden ability. Considering how literally 30+ mons decided to hop on the defog train for absolutely no reason, Passimian’s defiant would be an AMAZING punisher for specifc defoggers like rotom considering its new addition, seed bomb. Unfortunately its ability is still locked for some weird reason.. just wait, the day it becomes usable, this weird lemur-monkey-jock-thingy will see some usage. I’m sure as hell using one.
    6. Kommo-o- …. remember when people said this would be bad? Close combat, elemental punches, iron head, aqua tail… z-move can I stop here? No? Okay. This got all coverage… recovery… yknow… literally everything..a new z move…along with the things it previously had like dragon dance and soundproof to cancel the z moves of other kommo-os, literally everything about it has been enhanced and made better. Oh yeah and it got stealth rocks cause reasons….
    This thing to put it lightly has been buffed like F**K

    I got a final mon to talk about but it’s… interesting so I’ll give it its own section

    Mah sauce: https://pastebin.com/raw/yy8wTD0G

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Oh I’m so glad that Midnight and Kommie are more usable now, especially Kommie, it really needed that buff

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        I got one last mon to talk about

    • EarthenWarrior

      I wish Lycanroc Midnight got a freaking longer tail!
      That little stub just irks me so much

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        ;3

        • EarthenWarrior

          Just something a little longer, besides I rather use Iron Head…….oh who am I kidding this thing isn’t out speeding anything so I guess my moveset would be

          Stone Edge
          Sucker Punch
          Fire Punch/Iron Tail
          Counter (Say what you will Counter is who Lycanroc midnight and many times I’ve suckered physical attackers to take the bait and win via counter)

          • I agree with you I almost took out a 20ish levels higher Oranguru with Counter (Got it to like 20hp left, but sadly out sped and Psychic’d me to death)

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Iron head is decent but there’s no reason to use it over tail considering it has no guard
            Also it needs swords dance

          • EarthenWarrior

            But I wanna see the rock on its mane glow silver and pull just head smash the opponent

      • Earthen yo any tips for the secret race on s rank in Odyssey?

        • EarthenWarrior

          What?

          • In the snow kingdom. The S rank of the race thatvyou go to behind the moon block

          • EarthenWarrior

            …….OOOOOOAAAAAHHHHHH
            I member that now, that was my most fun I had

            So you wanna be Supersonic Snowman so this is what you gotta do, it’s all about precision and timing, your goal is not to focus on being faster it’s making sure you bounce and bound off every bumper

            Focus on that and learn the course it’s all a matter of time until you realize that you’re way ahead of just barely make it

          • EarthenWarrior

            Also the real opportunity to place ahead is in the tunnel since they fumble

            (I literally just booted up odyssey and ran the course and even broke my record)

      • Unseelie Fairy

        God Earthen such a size queen

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well would you want to look at such a little tail?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            If it can use it well

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well I’ll be the judge of that

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Never had you down as that kind of guy

          • EarthenWarrior

            You do realize in a way I am a size queen?
            I’ll let you think that over

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I want to use Passimian but I don’t really want to put up with Receiver.

  • So I finished my sketch book I’ve had since June. I took way too long to fill it but oh well. Here are my favorites

    https://imgur.com/a/pnFLV

    • (It has Pokémon characters in it so it’s relevant I swear)

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Does anyone have a Delphox in a Poké Ball that isn’t the standard Poké Ball?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I have it in Dusk if that’s any good? I’ll be collecting it in Apricorn and Beast Balls when USUM is out.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        That’d be more than good :0

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I’ll breed you one in a minute, just finishing something.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            That’d be a amazing :0

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It’s ready, sorry it took so long.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    I get a lot of Snivy’s in friend balls via WT. Must be a trend lol

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Those peeps have good taste

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    7. Silvally…. this thing is… awkward.. it’s got a decent defensive type on some forms… decent…. other… stuff.. .A lot of the forms lacked coverage on the physical side prior so.. It gets a lot of new coverage moves like the pledges (apparently the blast burn part of its moveset was a mistake and it meant to reference the pledges), heat wave, and signal beam… but it’s special attack stat is mediocre and work up is the only raise it is Work Up….it has set up for its physical side which gets zen headbutt and oddly enough outrage… it also gets defog and tailwind which would make it a decent support mon except it’s required to hold a memory to get type changes and its utility is sorta weird… overall I can see this mon being used a fair bit more but saying how good it will be is a challenge considering how overall weird this mon is in general…. game freak honestly tried to make this thing good but… idk.

    Bewear, Togedemaru, and Pallosand all received buffs that make them quite a bit stronger but they’re all rather obvious for why they help the mon. Additionally, the actual impact they have isn’t that large and its plausible that they may not even leave their current tiers

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Do we have confirmation on whether Dusk Lycanroc has a hidden ability or not?

    • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

      I’ll look, give me a moment

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It doesn’t.

  • EarthenWarrior

    So I’m having an anime moment and I’m having trouble deciding if I even want Dusk Form Lycanroc…

    I mean it’s technically new but deep down I realized that Midnight a is the one I relate with more than any other form

    And if it learns Fire Punch I can see it cackling as it swings its fiery paws left and right even combining Fire Punch with Stone Edge to create flaming spires

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Have you ever used Midnight in game before?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Sadly no….The second game out the bunch is reserved for Ground monos which…wasn’t really fun….only had like Mudbray starter Dugtrio, Sandygast and whatever I didn’t use

        So I dunno, I have plenty of Steadfast Rockruffs in fast balls and would be no trouble to send it over

    • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

      Lemme change your mind as of now
      It’s barely new. It’s a midday with tough claws and a 2 stat point difference. It’s literally the same as Midday
      Don’t even bother

      • Unseelie Fairy

        I think you mean don’t even bother with Midday because it’s inferior to Dusk in every way

        • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

          that’s true but I mean if he’s ever used midday, it’s essentially the same thing but a slight amount stronger
          Barely any difference

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Move tutors my dude, not a huge change but it’s not going to be the exact same

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            I’m pretty sure Midday and dusk have the exact same move tutor moves. Midnight actually gets different stuff

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Dusk is basically Midday with Counter and Tough Claws, but i’m still gonna use it because i love it in terms of aesthetics.

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        DO NOT FORGET THE HUGE DIFFERENCE
        2 LOWER BASE SPEED AND 2 HIGHER ATTACK
        W H O A H

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Dusk is basically Midday but stronger so if you’ve used Midday already you won’t miss much, most of the changes from Midday to Dusk are aesthetic only.

      That’s why we needed Dawn ffs

    • Govnah

      Dusk Lycanroc was probably only made for the anime, added to the game late in development hence why its event only but still its more Ashcanroc then anything else

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Use Midnight if you prefer it. I can breed you one in any ball you like with Sucker Punch, Fire+Thunder Fang and Thrash or Crush Claw if you like.

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    Fun fact: Meganium is a better user of counter than Lycanroc

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Fun fact: Meganium is thrash

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Fun Fact: So is Midnight Lycanroc

    • Chaos

      Why would anyone use Counter on Midnight Lycanrock?

      It’s not a defensive Pokemon, it has loads of weaknesses, it doesn’t have recovery, it doesn’t have sturdy. Seriously why?

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Ask the people down below. Idk

        • Shady

          nobody said we should use Counter on it

          • TheReece25

            GF encouraged it

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Meganium needs a buff.

  • Govnah
  • Watching RebelTaxi’s review of Giant Robo. It actually looks pretty cool. Might give it a watch

    • Govnah

      its over

  • Ultron

    Is it sad the thing Im maybe most excited for in USUM is the music remixes from past gens?

    • no

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It seems to be a large part of it so I say it’s a good thing to look forward to.

      • Ultron

        Also I still just want to know about apricorn balls :I

        • Monkeyfuzz

          So do I. I really just want them to be purchasable.

          • Ultron

            They really need to be. That’s probably the thing out of this game I want most lol

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Even if it’s for like 4 BP a ball I’d take it.

          • Ultron

            While that would be shitty and I wouldn’t put it past them, yeah, I’d take even that

  • MenacingCascoon

    The trainer battle theme SUCKS compared to SM theme. They remixed it so much that I can barely tell its same theme. It’s awful/10. It’s a shame it went from best trainer battle theme to easily the worst.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    I have come back after a short reflection period. I am sorry for any upset and/or annoyance I caused earlier. I would have been back sooner to say this but I had stuff to do. As some of you know I have quite alot of problems, some of which I haven’t shared at all here, that affect how I react to things. Not that this excuses anything I say or do. I know I probably just seem weak and terrible and this was probably the shortest ‘leaving’ ever but I felt worse not coming here to apologise for earlier. Thanks to those who asked me to stay, I am annoyed at myself because I somewhat dramatised the situation which was never my intention. I hope we can all move forward from here.

  • MenacingCascoon

    I have a question for you guys. I’m compiling a list for top 10 favorites of Each type, and I want to include Both Alola and regular Dugtrio for ground. there is an obvious difference between them (I like ALola dugtrio more) would you have them be two seperate spots/ or would they share a spot. Same with pokemon in the same evolution line. Would they be seperate spots or would like average the likeableness in both? Does this make sense?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Separate for Alolan, same for evolution line, at least that’s what I do.

    • Butter Geek

      I’d say put em in one spot together.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Eh separate, I consider them different enough

  • Butter Geek

    Fav Fossil?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You mean Fossil ‘mon or actual Fossil?

      • Butter Geek

        Mon Lol

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Well you could have meant like Helix or Sail fossil. Anyway Kabutops, Omastar and Tyrantrum are my top 3 at the moment.

    • Taum2

      Definitely Aurorus and Tyrantrum.

    • Butter Geek

      For me it’s Tyrantrum. It’s just so frickin awesome! And it’s a Dragon type, Which just makes it cooler. An amazing mon!

    • Top 3 are

      1. Armaldo
      2. Rampardos
      3. Omastar

    • Ultron

      Probably Aurorus! The only one I dont really like though is Bastiodon

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Carracosta and Archeops

  • Just to say it, I’m making positive, thoughtful Pokémon memes now…

    I’ve made Birthday, Congrats and Need a Hug?. So what should I do next?

      ……….WHHHHAAAAAAAT I CANT GET TOTEM KOMMO-O IN SUN BULLSHIIIIIIIT

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Use Moon fam

        Especially if you’re gonna use Midnight Lycan

        • EarthenWarrior

          Ughhhhhhhhhh I don’t want Moon to be my main game…..

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Why. Good reasons only.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Just get it later when you play Ultra Moon then.

      But can you trade them? Honestly though it would be cooler if you could make any pokemon a totem. I want a giant Volcarona

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Giant Wailord would break the game if it were the size it’s meant to be then totem sized.

          The Switch could handle it 😀

    Just wanna say I loved the post kyogre/groudon scenes. The peaceful ending around hoenn where it shows different places and people celebrating their survival the end of heavy kyogre storms.
    Wonderful touch from GF..xD Love these games.

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    SOMEONE Tell me if vikavolt got major buffs to its speed?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      No, it’s not a generational shift so stats don’t alter.

    • Ultron

      The most it would probably ever get would be +20 to speed, but even that’s wishful thinking

  • Jewelwriter Moonstar

    …These are before gamers get their hands on it isn’t it? [Remembering that we are 2 days to release date.]

    I’ve got a hate hammer for gen 7 and I’ve been ready for what can be a failure of this generation by being the 3rd game that came out in under a year. (And unlike the other two that have came out in under a year, this one is in a good generation and will declare gen 7 the worst gen near gen 1 if it really goes fowl.)

    If GF were to make their games have three third versions, have only 50 new mons, and minamal effort but the post game had a battle frontier

      I’m not trying to shade anyone, but it’s true

    • Ultron

      Well I would praise it for that, but I also tend to look at pokemon games in parts. So if everything else about the game was bad, I’d point it out. I also would be kinda angry if there were only 50 pokemon :I I want another big generation.

      • Fedex

        We’re long over due a big gen of Pokemon

        I’m saying plenty of people would do so

        • Ultron

          Oh, no, I know. Though I am a big BF fan so initially yes I would be very excited. Hopefully it wouldn’t blind me to everything else though

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            I know it wouldn’t

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Right? I still don’t understand the love of the Battle Frontier, but oh well……not getting into that fight

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Oh it’s a great feature for sure
        I just feel like it gets focused on waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Is it tho? Just seems like a bunch of facilities that force you into long tedious tournaments of battle after battle and the only thing you really get out of it is a badge that does nothing.

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            I enjoyed it

          • Dicie

            It does have a greater sense of replay value than the Battle Maison or Battle Tree. Generally more varied, too.

          • Ultron

            Think if you could battle with past trainers in battle frontier facilities. Would really make it cool!

          • Dicie

            That would be pretty nice. An extension to the PWT would be even more.

          • Ultron

            Maybe the PWT to be incorporated as a new battle facility?

          • Dicie

            Dream come true, in all honesty xD

          • Ultron

            I’m not sure how a frontier brain for it would work though. Maybe like after you beat the circuit of 8 leaders you face the brain?

      • Ultron

        Well because pokemon has turned heavily toward competitive battling basically as a replacement for post game content. In gen 3, when the Battle Frontier was introduced, there was only link cable battling between players so the BF was all there was to do post game. But now that we’ve all got wifi, and competitive battling is so accessible, simply battling one another isn’t enough for a lot of us. It gets stale after a while.

        Think of it like a multiplayer game with little to no local matchmaking. We need something to substitute offline battling. Yeah, we’ve got the battle tree and the agency now, but it’s still less offline battling content than 13 years ago.

        I don’t know if I explained that well, but those are my thoughts. Online battling isn’t really content. We need more offline stuff (though online battle THROUGH the battle frontier would be cool too)

    • Dicie

      I think something that fans long for, especially those who do not care for competitive play or shiny hunting, is something to keep them going after the main story.
      I’m not gonna lie, I LOVE Pokemon, but after spending a couple of weeks with Pokemon Moon, it rested on my shelf for about 11 months until a couple days ago when I decided to revisit it. For me, personally, I don’t enjoy shiny hunting or competitive battling, so I guess you could call me a “casual” player. I just wish that I had more of an incentive to keep playing. In this game, I guess it will be catching all of the legends and Ultra Beasts, which is a slight improvement from SM, but what’s after that? Maybe I have to adjust my playstyle to enjoy these titles more, I don’t know.

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        I know what you mean. I’m just upset that some fans legitimately hate newer games not cause of their flaws but LITERALLY because they don’t contain a battle frontier. No other reason

        • I don’t think that’s it? It’s more that there isn’t anything at all to do

          • Dicie

            Thank you :))

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Again, I agree, but I’m saying that there are people who legitimately focus on a singular feature and thats it. That’s what bothers me

        • Dicie

          Yeah, I definitely agree with you. The Battle Frontier isn’t the only thing that could give players a tangible postgame. And it’s something we haven’t had in a long time, so constant “where is it” year after year is just annoying.

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Exactly. The PWT for example was a nice change of pace

          • Ultron

            If it was a one and done thing, I’d agree, but it’s appeared 3 times, so obviously they brought it back twice, they can do it again. And yeah, the second time it was brought back it was an identical thing, but still HG/SS’ content was insane.

        • Luigi301

          I think the battle maison did a good job as a BF replacement

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            Really? Battle Maison is just the Battle Tower with a different name, nothing special.

          • Luigi301

            Then clearly i don’t remember BF because I️ thought it was the same thing. Battle maison wasn’t slow paced which is why I️ thought it did well

          • Ultron

            But how? Frontier had 7 different play styles. Maison had 1

          • Luigi301

            Didn’t maison have 4?? Single double multi and 3v3

          • Luigi301

            Or multi with a friend I️ don’t remember

          • Ultron

            Unless I’m mistaken, each battle facility from the frontier has that. But they have special battling modes, like how the factory and the tower are different in their approach to battling.

          • Luigi301

            Oh I know what you’re talking about. From emerald. I just figured RS

          • Ultron

            Yeah. There was also a frontier in Platinum and HGSS (the same one though)

          • Luigi301

            Yeah I remember but emerald had it first so… lol

          • Ultron

            Yeah, but Emerald’s is the best lol.

          • Tev-Da-Trainer

            Battle Maison is basically an offshoot of the Battle Tower from the Battle Frontier. It’s the same thing just with a different name.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Psssh what a casual player thing of you to say *pushes glasses up*

      • Luigi301

        I don’t enjoy shiny hunting either. I think it’s pointless but that’s just me. Sun and moon turned me off of competitive play so i guess I’m in the same boat as you

        • Dicie

          And maybe we’re in the minority with these feelings because they seem to get ignored game after game. I’ve caught one legitimate shiny in my life which was a Poliwhirl from chain fishing in XY. It’s just not fun for me. :/

          • Luigi301

            I don’t mind competitive. SM turned me off because I think Z moves are stupid in all honesty

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    All GF had to do was make the tree more like the PWT
    Was that so hard?

    • Luigi301

      Was the PWT even good? I barely did it cuz it was boring

      • Ultron

        It was cool cause you got to battle past gym leaders with powerful teams of 6. Idk, gym leaders are fun to me 😛

        • Luigi301

          I like battling gym leaders too but not like that

          • Ultron

            I mean it could be revamped. I don’t think it’s a must, but it’s cool seeing returning characters. I would settling for just being able to battle that regions gym leaders over again whenever

          • Luigi301

            I guess but regardless I don’t think that’s all GF had to do for USUM. Just saying

          • Ultron

            Def not. I like the new content they added, just wish there was a frontier or PWT again.

          • Luigi301

            Unpopular Opinion below:

            I wish it was a sequel not an alternate dimension or whatever they are calling it. Sun and Moon were boring to me. I enjoyed the story aspect sure but leading to it wasn’t good. I didn’t like trials, some of the good Pokémon in alola didn’t get evolutions, one of my favorites had a freakin ability that ditches battle when below 50% which made sense for Wimpod but not Golisopod. Z moves ruined everything, etc.

          • Ultron

            Honey, that ain’t an unpopular opinion! I agree with you 1000%! I probably wouldn’t say they were boring, but like a lot of pokemon games, the plot could’ve used polishing.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I wanted a Black Tower/ White Treehollow style faculty, but I didn’t get that either…..

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        True…

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I think if the Battle Frontier was more like how it was in the anime where you’d travel the region over again and don’t have to challenge 80 trainers in a row without losing I’d be more inclined to like it. Also maybe if they added more incentives to doing it. Like special items that only the best of the best should be allowed to have or something….idk

    • Fedex

      I really enjoyed the battle dome which was only found in Hoenn’s BF. It reminded me of the anime tourney style league championships.
      It was quite challenging as well and fun.
      The others were ok, the battle arena was a cool concept. Pik and Pyramid were good too.
      The feeling of having the gold symbols ahh.
      It was challenging so every victory felt goood

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Anyone have that helpful image of the additions to the Alola ‘dex?

  • Jacob Marion

    The only real thing I’m worried about with USUM is that there won’t be any trainers to re-battle like in Sun and Moon because I stopped playing Sun and Moon due to that fact. I’m not just grinding battles for hours and being bored just to complete the games, give me trainers where I actually have to use strategy and not feel like I’m wasting Pokemon that could be useful to me. Why they thought that was a good idea is beyond me, but, more than anything, I hope that’s something that they’ve fixed in USUM because I don’t want to have to just toss these games aside just like I did for Sun and Moon.

    Good Evening. This is Sunniera (Sunny). You may notice that I am going by Sunniera 2.0 now. Well long story made short.

I would like to thank @spectralseraph:disqus and @disqus_B13dRd0KEP:disqus for lending their ear during this time and contacting a mod for me.

          • I feel like I should like them more than I did. Non of the creatures in Odyssey really stood out as “I really like this one” other than maybe the New Donk City people just for how ridiculous they are. I do appreciate the variety rather than just a billion toads. It wasn’t until I got to the Lost Kingdom shop when I realized how few toads I had actually seen.

  • EarthenWarrior

    OH MY FRACK the Starter intro bullcrap takes at least a whole 4 minutes to actually check nature and gender

  • So since I read both Odessy and BotW are in the ranks for best game if the year, so which one would you pick to win that title

    Haven’t played either (No Switch yet :/) but my vote would go towards Odessy

    • EarthenWarrior

      They’re very good but what truly makes a game of the year
      is it because the story and gameplay was so rich in detail and enchants the player with newfound senses of amazement

      or a game that is charming, vivid, creative and extremely enjoyable to play

      it really boils down to playing a game for its story or because its really fun to play

    • Breath of the Wild

      It sure has its flaws I won’t deny it. Difficulty stagnates as you figure out how things work, dungeons are very short and limited, shrines can become a bore and Korok Seeds are filler there is no denying it.

      And those are things that should be addressed moving forward but for what this game achieved it is just absolutely incredible. Just the sense of exploration you feel exploring Hyrule is a truly unique feeling. This is one of the best designed games Nintendo has ever made. It doesn’t hold your hand. The environment and mechanics lead you to figuring out how to survive on your own

      It is such an important game for the medium. It’s quiet while still feeling grand. It’s relaxed while still being an adventure. Future developers will look at this game as devs today look at Ocarina. The game is an absolute triumph.

      It’s an experience. The one where once you’re done with it you only wish you could forget everything about it so you can play through it and discover everything for the first time again. In a world where games seem to be little more than cynical cash grabs, BOTW reminded me that there are still creative people out there that want to create art. They want to create meaningful experiences with the player.

      As amazing and impressive as Odyssey is, I don’t think it is an accomplishment in the same vain as Zelda. Odyssey may be the better game on a surface level, but Breath of the Wild is a better experience. Odyssey is very close to a perfect game while Breath of the Wild has its fair share of issues. But once again, Breath of the Wild is just an experience that everyone needs to have. It’s just incredible

    • ShinyXatu

      I’ve played both significantly and the answer is Breath of the Wild. The scale of this game, along with the gameplay and polish, is just as close to perfect as you could get. Odyssey tries its best to establish that kind of scale, but does it within the confines of Mario. It’s an amazing game of course, but it can’t hold a candle to Breath of the Wild.

    • Govnah

      Persona 5.

      • Govnah

        Amazing story, Amazing Characters, Amazing Combat, and theres so much to do

        • Phantom S

          Clarify something for me, please. Is it better after the Bank? Because, man, the first castle and the story were so much better than this part! Its getting tedious and repetitive. 🙁

    • Dicie

      Odyssey for sure. I didn’t enjoy Breath of the Wild (not a huge Zelda fan), and while I appreciate the departure from the series tradition that BotW introduced, Odyssey still has that edge for me. Both are revolutionary in their own rights and are sure to be Switch classics, but I’m a Mario lover at heart.

    • Ultron

      I would have to go with BotW, but I haven’t played Odyssey. The thing about Mario though is that it’s just a fun game on the surface. The characters are never given any depth, which is something BotW actually set out to do with its characters. Even Link has some character to him. Yeah, I could definitely list a bunch of flaws of the game, but it’s also just a masterpiece and raised the bar for zelda and open world.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Well I think I’ve managed to update my Pokeball collection list with new ‘dex, island scan and wormhole ‘mon. Though I’ll have to wait for the games to release to be sure. Ready to start collecting/trading these extra species.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I just want to freaking start working on migrating crap and getting them moves,

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I will need to update some of my ‘mon with moves too. My Decidueye could do with Shadow Sneak for a start.

    Well i just started the homeowners question in botw. Will probably take me some time to do it considering i need 3000 rupees and 30 pieces of wood.

        I will keep that in mind for the future. Didn’t even realize that you could own a house in he game until I saw it online last night lol

        • You can buy armor holder thingies. i like to put the champion weapons in there :3

            Sounds good because I really want to keep them when I do get them. Have tried my best not to use the trident because of that.

          Lol
          No but seriously his ability is kinda like the arts

    As much as breathe of the wild was a disappointment to me I cant deny this is probably one of the best trailers Nintendo ever done

      Fun fact I noticed it says Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 instead of just Nintendo Switch Presentation so could we been seeing another one in the near future?

        A opinion… thats not the same as yours? Nani?

        • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

          I’m actually legitimately not understanding why you feel that way
          Can ya clarify why?

    • Ultron

      Eh this trailer is good, but not the best I’ve ever seen or anything

    • ShinyXatu

      A new challenger approaches!

      • Govnah

        the reveal video was cool

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    • ShinyXatu

      These Japanese music videos are unironically some of my favorite songs ever. This is my new favorite of the bunch.

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        I don’t even know wtf this is

    • zess

      So are we going to get a Tentacool themed game next lol?

      • EarthenWarrior

        or sure a game were you’re afraid to move a single tile of ocean

        • zess

          Maybe in a region far far away trainers hold competitions to see how long their tentacool can stay out of water. What ever the case may be I hope something comes of it I kinda liked Magikarp Jump.

      Don’t let the bastards get you down
      Don’t let the assholes wear you out

  • TheReece25

    I think one day, they will put the tamagachi or whatever.. pokeball thing in our phones. That would be a great app to interact with your Pokemon. It would basically have Amie inside . I’d love that

  • EarthenWarrior

        I hope you get banned!

  • EarthenWarrior

    HOLY CRAP TODAY’S NEW EPISODE DID SOMETHING CAZY CAZY I WANNA SHOUT IT BUT I MUST NOT
    Cosmog evolved and a Nihilego took Lusamine into Ultra Space

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Did you see the preview for next episode? Totem Kommo-o shows up already

      • EarthenWarrior

        Not just Kommo-o THE WHOLE EVOLUTIONARY FAMILY EEEEEE
        I just need it’s dubbed voice and a battle (one that won’t last 10 seconds) and I can write it better

        Also I noticed…..freaking Fairy Type Silvally….gross

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Gladion’s Silvally?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Well I mean… There’s no other Silvally we know of in the anime :p

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Wonder if its permanent or if Gladion is gonna switch between memories. If it stays Fairy, would that be to counter one of Ash’s (future?) mons? hope he gets a Kommo-o tbf

          • Unseelie Fairy

            It used the Dark Memory when it evolved, so it looks like Gladion will just constantly change it to whatever works the best

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Ash should take notes

          • Unseelie Fairy

            But ash doesn’t have a Pokemon that can change types on a whim 👀

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            We both know there are times when Ash flat out dismisses type matchups and wins because plot armor
            It doesn’t set a good example for the kids

        • Unseelie Fairy

          There’s no form better for absolutely decimating Kommo-o

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

      • EarthenWarrior

        Also Lusamine is starting to reveal her true colors

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Yo they better evolve Ash’s mons asap. Cant have him tackle Ula’ula with a tiny rowlet and litten smh

  • Deerlia

    This deer fell in love and now has a mate~
    Life really surprises this doe, one day i am alone, the next an old time friend and me get together.
    I am so excited deers, and with ultra sun and moon tomorrow, i can hardly contain my excitement~

    • zess

      Hmmm I suppose it is in season🤔 but all jokes aside… Congratulations! I hope everything works out for you two!

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    Making my all star team is such a bitch….. Seriously, WHY IS EVERYTHING I’VE USED EITHER A PHYSICAL ATTACKER OR A TYPE DOUBLE

    • EarthenWarrior
      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Not everybody is you Earthen, Type doubles weird me out

        • Unseelie Fairy

          I don’t think he was meaning anything rude by it, he just showed his all stars team which happened to have the two traits you described

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Oh I know, I just was responding to why I can’t

        • EarthenWarrior

          Could you imagine if everyone was me
          Just a crowded room and all you’d hear was
          “God Damn it!” “Frack!” “Piss Off” “Get Bent!” “Feh” “Bah”

          • Unseelie Fairy

            FEH

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Some weird FEHtish I see?

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            To be fair I say piss off and goddamnit a lot

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Would you ever use this team during an in game run? :0

        • EarthenWarrior

          I would and this team doesn’t handle too badly in UU
          But there are some hard counters like defensive Pokemon

          You’d be surprised how well Pangoro really is especially since it has Bullet Punch now

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Since you’ve already done a mono ground run, you should totally use this team in one of your USUM playthroughs 😮

            I used a Pangoro once, it was probably one of the two aces on that team

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Ironically everything here (idk about the rhyperior) is catchable in alola

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Rhyperior is island scan

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Seriously? Interesting

          • EarthenWarrior

            As crazy as it sound I don’t need anymore Rhyperior (last I checked I had at least 9)
            And 3 of them are basically every situation
            Bulky Attacker (This one’s the best because it’s a legit 6iv perfect Rhyperior in a Safari Ball)
            Defensive wall
            Rock Polish

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Holy shiiiiiiiiiiiiiit
            Actually you’re missing one type of Rhyperior
            The most collector-y type

          • EarthenWarrior

            What else is there?
            Standard all out attacker
            Defense
            And speedy sweeper

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Shiny

          • EarthenWarrior

            I don’t give a frack about shiny Rhyperior
            It looks so bad, like pale grey and lackluster gold

            I greatly prefer it’s grey red brown body and orange plates

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            But collector purposes
            I would get shinies of my favorite mons… besides Kommo-o… just…. eww

          • EarthenWarrior

            Ironically I have a Shiny Kommo-o

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            That thing looks so damn gross

          • EarthenWarrior

            I know, it should’ve been white and silver like a paladin

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Or like some dark color that would have looked good

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I was meaning for an in game run :p

          • EarthenWarrior

            If anything I should be working on Fighting Monos

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    I’m not used to being cold…

    • EarthenWarrior

      You lack sufficient levels of blubber

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        The thing is I’m NEVER cold
        Like I can stand outside in 20 degree weather and be perfectly chill with it
        For some reason here I’m fuckin freezing

        • Unseelie Fairy

          I forgot Fahrenshite existed for a second so I was going to question why you’d find being warm in 20 degrees impressive :p

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            I’ll give you that. I think it’s an absolutely moronic thing because Americans get used to some stupid temperature used absolutely NOWHERE else in the world and when they go to another country they’re fuckin confused af

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    I’d use Hydreigon but it doesn’t fucking evolve until level 64

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I used Zweilous in BW2, it’s actually not that bad if you keep the Eviolite on it when you’re not grinding

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Yeah but the issue is that it literally will not evolve until post game unless I overlevel

        • Unseelie Fairy

          It’s the same issue in BW2 but it was still fun to use :p

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      I used a hydreigon in my SM run. It evolved from deino to zweilous at Pink and from zweilous to hydreigon after my first failed attempt at the e4

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    Getting a shiny tepig with blaze was one of the worst things I’ve experienced

    • EarthenWarrior

      I know, Reckless is the only thing it has that works
      Slap a Scarf and smash things to bits with Stab Reckless Flare Blitz and boosted Head Smash/Wild Charge

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Do we know how Flabebe is distributed across alola yet?

    • EarthenWarrior

      Well I tink
      Yellow mele mele
      Red ula ula
      Blue poni

      While orange and white can appear rarely in any flowerbed

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        We’re just gonna forget Akala huh?
        it has tapu lele on it I’d love to forget it

        • EarthenWarrior

          I don’t remember if there were flowers there? Riiight pink so I guess red?

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Apparently there weren’t but Oricorio is found near a town that has them

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Akala doesn’t have a Meadow

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            …. holy hell I forgot…. couldn’t it be found near where Pink Oricoryinthehouse can be found?

      • Unseelie Fairy

        This is what makes the most sense in my head tbh, I just need to know where white is if I’m doing all stars :0

  • zess

    Does anyone know how soon we’ll be able to transfer Pokemon from sun and moon? I’m assuming it’s as soon as we get to an pokemon center and unlock festival plaza. Seeing as I won’t have the game till late tomorrow if somebody finds out or knows I would appreciate it if you’d let me know.

    Thanks in advance 🙏🏾

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    I’ve never actually done a dedicated team run of Sinnoh and Kanto yet…….
    weird

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    Even though I’m bad with my team at least I’m not my friend

    Friend: *wants to use all star team in alola*
    Friend: *One of the main members is locked behind post game Island scan*

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Why don’t they trade it over?

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Idk, I might just breed them an aron tbh

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    I honestly regret hating on passimian so much cause honest to god I love its design

    • EarthenWarrior

      Bro you’re sh*tposting what’s the mattah

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        that’s not a shitpost, I actually like the thing a ton

    • I honestly if it pops up, will catch it and use it

  • Unseelie Fairy

    How often do you notice that your in game team has an ace? Some teams for me have a super obvious ace (usually the starter or a pseudo), some teams have a sleeper ace (starts off bad but murders the game) and sometimes it feels like the whole team is aces (as much as I don’t like ORAS as a game, my AS team was kick ass)

    • EarthenWarrior

      Crabrawler was pretty effective in Sun,

    • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

      Frequently. In my runs…

      Every Nuzlocke: Honchkrow/Murkrow
      Alola: Araquanid
      Unova 1: Samurott (I twas just a kid)
      Unova 2: Ampharos
      Johto: Tylphlosion/Ampharos
      Kalos: Dragalge but the HM slave Hawlucha was the lowkey MVP I didn’t realize till later

    • Honestly in Alola my ace during most of the time it was on was Marty the Togedemaru

      In X it was Sylveon, AS… my Hariyama wasn’t the best in-game, but somehow even tho it had decent stats it dominated competitively, in Diamond definetly Honchkrow, BW and BW2 it was my Samurott (I love Samurott)

      But who probably pulled through the most as a whole and never disappoints? Marty 100% despite being Sassy he bested the E4 single handedly (for the most part) with a move pool of Zing Zap, Spikey Shells, Fell Stinger and Poison Jab (Poison Jab was just the greatest on it)

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    So it seems that my final team choice seems like I’ll be picking Honckrow or Glaceon for my all star team

    Honckrow has played a larger role in my games considering its saved three or four of my nuzlockes by itself.. but Glaceon also played a huge role in my childhood and was one of my favorite mons to use in Diamonds post game….

    I’ve never actually used either in a full blown playthrough (even though I might as well with Honch considering how long it’s lived in nuzlockes, sometimes even to the end of them)

    My team also has more special attackers and would overall benefit from Glaceon… this choice is so hard

    • Oh cool! Honchkrow honestly is amongst my favorite Dark and Flying type

      In Diamond it literally pulled the team through the cold mountains, the shocking SunnyShore Gym and was rarely bested *Flashbacks to the one shot Machamp battle* So yeah I totally say you should use it

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow
