I don’t use caps in titles very often, but when its the release day of a new Pokémon game you better bet I’m keeping my pinky close to the CAPS LOCK key to shout about all the GREAT NEW STUFF waiting for Pokémon fans. After months of eagerly anticipating the enhanced version of last year’s hit titles Pokémon Sun & Moon, it’s finally time to dive into Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon!

Now live in Australia, Japan, and mainland Europe, the games will be debuting soon elsewhere. And fans are encouraged to share their progress in the comments below! Please be respectful to fellow fans and refrain from sharing spoilers about the storyline.

If you have QUESTIONS or want a more organized and DEDICATED DISCUSSION SPACE please be sure to check out our forums! You can request trades, battles and more! Click here! Our main page works a little different than most sites and aggregates new discussions so you can see all the great topics right from the get-go!

I would also like to take time to remind everyone in our Disqus community down below to please treat your fellow trainers amicably and be polite. When moderating I never like to take a heavy-handed approach, but please do not make me get out my ruler to smack knuckles. Keep discussions appropriate, don’t insult people – All those great rules for life you learned back in primary school 😉 I know we can do it Junglers!

Love you all

<3 PJ

  • Browserboom

    So hyped for tomorrow!

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    The full alola dex and more are now on Serebii
    Note Baltoy and Golett are exclusive to US and UM respectively

  • Deerlia

    Awesome, it’s gonna be a fun trip~

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    “Rubbing its fleece generates electricity. You’ll want to pet it because it’s cute, but if you use your bare hand, you’ll get a painful shock.”
    So if I died in Pokemon, this is how it would happen

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    “It has a habit of storing things it values in its water bubble. If its Trainer doesn’t watch out, Araquanid will try to put them in its bubble!”

    This is both adorable and scary at the same time

    • EarthenWarrior

      I still want to run an experiment on Dewpider and Araquanid’s bubble

      Like is the water bubble viscous or watery, like if you stuck your hand and tried grabbing the water, and what holds it together

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Hmmm
        Well at least we know the bubble is water

  • EarthenWarrior

    To actually think tomorrow is the day, I still remember the days everyone was hating the game and going crazy from lack of news

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    So why the actual hell does flygon get wood hammer?

    • Ultron

      Does it finally get quiver dance?

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Unfortunately no

        • Ultron

          So Flygon still sucks and is knockoff garchomp despite coming first

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            iT gEtS wOoD hAmMeR XdXD

          • Ultron

            ITs TyPe StIlL nEeDs To Be ReTcOnNeD tO BuG/gRoUnD

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Agreed but this is what we’re rocking with

          • Ultron

            That’s why I’ll settle for quiver dance :/

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Agreed… it literally gets a shitton of sound based move
            Would love mega flygon that builds on that concept but eh

          • Ultron

            But gamefreak hates us

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Maybe if we give our flygons wood hammer they’ll love us

          • Ultron

            Such a strange addition to its moveset 😡

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I don’t know why half the things that got it did

    • Chaos

      To beat Milotic obviously

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        But it makes literally no sense.
        Of all things
        FLYGON

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Wait, what? When did this happen

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    So Flygon is now canonically a siren of the desert
    I accept this with open arms

  • I got very confused by the title because I was pretty sure it was a Thursday morning and not Friday

  • Can you trade totem sized Pokémon?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      They’re tradeable and bankable, at least between USUM

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I think some can also be in SuMo.

      • Awesome!! I hope someone wants to trade a totem Ribombee

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Think that’ll be a hard one to trade for seeing as it’s the one you get for collecting all 100 stickers :0

        • Fedex

          Depends what you’re offering in return!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Oh that’s a totem now? I hope it’s a tough one.

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Ooh might want to spoiler that BTW

        • EarthenWarrior

          I’ll give you mine if you give me a Totem Kommo-o

  • Fedex

    Thanks PJ we appreciate your kind words :]
    Only a day left,I am sooo FRIGINN EXCITED!!

  • Fedex

    I’m still busy from the sea and land to space in Hoenn. Better be quick or I’ll miss the ferry to Alola.
    See you guys later on 🖐

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow
    • He’s not wrong? He listed all of the forms

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Look at the stats and typings

        • Oh oops

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Yep…
            I love oricorio mega salamence form

    • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

      Fire flying
      Fire ground (Mega Camreupt’s stats)
      Normal fighting (Bewears stats)
      dragon flying (Presumably mega salamences stats)

    • Monkeyfuzz

      New forms with ‘special nectar’.

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Ayyy

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    Why the fucc does HAWLUCHA GET WOOD HAMMER

    • Fedex

      And Flygon does too!
      Anything new on Arcanine???

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Dragon pulse if thats new

        • Fedex

          Arghh no knock off??

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            It honestly doesn’t need it

          • Fedex

            Guess so what it really needs is some physical equivalent of quiver dance. Dragon dance!

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            It doesn’t, have you seen it in vgc?

          • Fedex

            Yeah. I meant for singles OU UU etc
            It does good in VGC doesn’t it??

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            it’s the best mon in vgc outside of like Lando t

          • Fedex

            Wow awesome.
            What makes it so good? Intimidate? Good movepool?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Both

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Uhh what

      Where are you seeing this

      • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

        Serebii… they updated everything (And hillariously fucked up oricorio’s stats)
        Flygon and Hawlucha get wood hammer for some weird ass reason

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Wouldn’t of that got picked up earlier by the dataminers?

          • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

            Yeah but I never actually noticed it until now

    • EarthenWarrior

      That’s impossible

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        But it does now

  • CallMeHM03CuzIGotThatFlow

    Litten literally lights itself on fire to shed its fur

  • Ultron

    Oh cool. Giga Drain is back as a move tutor. Probably will give that to my Volcarona this time around instead of roost

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Deci gets it

      It also gets the legendary WOOD HAMMER

      • Ultron

        It gets leaf storm too. Is special deci more viable? I feel like shadow sneak overall is better to go with

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Wihtout a doubt physical is much better
          Shadow sneak is great cause it’s more reliable than sucker
          But its support set is nice now too

          • Ultron

            Still need dat leech seed? I feel like leech seed should totally fit it. Like it could shoot seed bomb arrows at the foe that will sapple its health 🙁 maybe it couldve even gotten another special move that does that. An arrow-based leech seed

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Exactly….

  • Monkeyfuzz

    “An Ultra Beast that lives in a different world, it cackles wildly as it sprays its opponents with poison from the needles on its head.”

    • Ultron

      Ooo Adhesive into that demented dark humor sh*t. I can roll with that

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    Welp so much for any usage aipom was gonna get in this game

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Why?

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Pretty sure its post game considering dex placement

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Trade, Bank, GS VC transfer?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I mean I doubt half the people who wanted to use it will now

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Probably not :/

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            *sigh*

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    So scizor gets wood hammer

    Jesus christ this list is getting bigger and bigger

    • Ultron

      Voltorb gets wood hammer

      Jk

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        It says klefki gets it too… this is clearly an error

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Riolu gets Meteor Mash as an egg move now 🙂

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      I do not wanna mess with that
      he’s already broken in Pokken

      • :3

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          He’s I think the best in the game from what I hear

          • Wait, really?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            yep, general consensus puts him in the top 2 at LEAST

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    Wait nevermind
    Apparently SOMEHOW serebii managed to switch Defog and wood hammer
    Jesus christ how do you even make a mistake like this?

  • Monkeyfuzz

    So Serebii has listed Zeraora already, I thought he usually held off until mythicals were officially revealed? I remember Marshadow didn’t appear for ages.

    Also just noticed he follows himself on Twitter…

  • Funny Valentine

    Is Wood Hammer a new meme now?

    • Maybe so (Also, nice profile pic, haven’t gotten that far in JoJo yet, but I’m excited to get to it)

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Nope,merrek made a mishap and somehow replaced move tutor defog with wood hammer so some mons who make zero sense for having defog are listed as having it on serebii

      • How is that even possible?

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          I don’t even know but I did some digging in and found out that’s the case

      • Funny Valentine

        All male Pokemon should be able to learn Wood Hammer ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer
    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Aww, that’s kinda cute

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        BUT IT’S SO LITTLE
        LIKE THEY COULDN’T MAKE IT REACT A LITTLE MORE?!

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          It doesn’t need to :3

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            It just looks a bit lazy
            I mean I’d love to be proven wrong but I feel like Assembly is a filler

        • Unseelie Fairy

          It’s a stone wall

          There’s literally sayings about stone walls

          They could’ve went lazier than giving it a unique model posture in refresh

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I guess but like it just feels lazy though.. I dunno..

    • Unseelie Fairy

      That’s actually adorable

    • My Chromebook won’t load the page, can you DM me the image?

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Its a video of amie assembly
        It barely moves

        • Just send me it

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I can’t rn

        • Unseelie Fairy

          *refresh

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Whoops

    • Ultron

      That’s kinda weird

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    For all you nerds like myself caring about moveset changes
    https://serebii.net/ultrasunultramoon/movesetchange.shtml

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Mr Mime literally got one moveset change
      It now learns pound

      • Ultron

        Oh hell, better watch out!!

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          ZOINKS

          • EarthenWarrior

            RUH OH

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Well this has informed me that in SuMo Bulbasaur learnt Vine Whip twice 2 levels apart which was stupid.

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Drowzee learns headbutt twice

        • Monkeyfuzz

          At least the levels were further apart, still pointless though. I really do wonder why they did that.

  • Josh Omega

    Tomorrow is a bad day for my wallet. Pokémon USUM releases and skyrim for switch too. I will end up getting them all eventually and most likely put countless hours into skyrim again lol

    • Josh Omega

      That said I will be exploring alola a little later than expected. I am saving hyrule right now although Zelda is probably raging in the castle because I am building a house instead of focusing on stopping Ganon 🤣

    • Ultron

      Aw yeah, I’m getting Skyrim (for the 3rd time) tomorrow too. But it’s gonna be a christmas present :/

      • Josh Omega

        I will get it eventually. Probably next month after I get two extra controllers and Mario kart for when my nieces come to the house

        • Ultron

          Though I’m not holding my breath, I really hope they add mod support for it. After playing it on Xbox One with the project hippie mod, going back to vanilla Whiterun will be kinda hard D:

          • Josh Omega

            I have never played with mods since I only owned it on PS3 lol though it would be nice if Nintendo let them add mod support

          • Ultron

            I think they said it was possible it could come. It would warm my cold, shriveled heart

          • Josh Omega

            I would love it if a mod that made the npcs smarter came to it lol and random but your profile picture reminds me that I need to use a Durant eventually. It’s one of the Pokémon I have never used

          • Ultron

            Honestly I wouldn’t be surprised if a mod like that already existed lol.

            And yeah, Durant is really cool! It can be frail, but its typing makes up for that a bit and it can hit like a bitch lol

          • Josh Omega

            I will probably use in USUM eventually then. Not first playthrough though already decided on ribombee for bug type

  • I have this huge empty sketchbook to draw in and I have no clue what to draw lol

    • Deerlia

      draw a comic, something funny about pokemon to tie in with USUM, just an idea for ya~

    • EarthenWarrior

      Reminds me of middle school
      I have four notebooks filled with monster ideas and I constantly strained myself to come up with new ideas

      • It could be fun to remake some of those

        • EarthenWarrior

          I should show them to you sometime that’s how my video game character Flash & Zap was born

    • Ultron

      Draw you walking with totem Ribombee. Maybe draw its new size as being comical

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    It’s so weird not seeing Regular SM in store shelves. I guess they don’t want people being confused between the two games

  • EarthenWarrior

    So the whole Wood Hammer thing was a mistake?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Yes, it was put in instead of Defog.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Knew it, sadly I wish Emboar had Wood Hammer, would be SO HELPFUL
        And Close Combat or Submission

        • It doesn’t learn close combat?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Nupe and I have to rely on Superpower for a decent Fighting move

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It should definitely have those last 2.

        • Unseelie Fairy

          But wood hammer makes no sense on it. _.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I know but imagine the coverage

          • Ultron

            Even with wood hammer it would still suck, my dude

          • EarthenWarrior

            Very much wrong on that
            All you need is a choice scarf

            Bumps it’s speed to like a 376 and Stab Reckless boosted Flare Blitz hurts

            And it can also abuse Head Smash and to a lesser extent Wild Charge

            Trust me Emboar isn’t as bad as everyone assumes it is

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Normally I’d like to point out every single way you’re wrong here but….
            well
            I 100% agree… it would actually be really good with Woodhammer.. though it makes zero sense

          • EarthenWarrior

            You’d think that but
            “The user slams its rugged body into the target to attack. This also damages the user quite a lot.”
            It’s kinda like power whip a few non plants learn it

          • Ultron

            Isn’t it like partly based on an oven/kiln? Guess it wouldn’t be that big of a stretch.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            The thing is through every Pokémon that learns wood hammer has wood on its body or as a tool, whereas Power Whip from its intro Gen onwards was always just ‘it can whip’

          • EarthenWarrior

            I know I’m just sayin
            Emboar would really benefit from a decent grass move

  • ShinyXatu

    My copies should ship in about 12 hours following what happened with Odyssey! It kinda sucks that I’m in a busy time right now (I have to pick next semester’s classes in 2 weeks and I have no idea what I’m doing with my life), but these games will be there to help me through it.

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    I love how USUM’s dex entry talking about how Hawlucha basically flaunts off its special moves so much that it screws itself over

  • Deomage

    Does anyone know how soon you can trade in USUM? And, if you can trade from regular Sun/Moon right away? I want to give myself a team I breed to play through the game.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      From the first Pokecenter and yes straight away afaik.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Noooooooooice, but the rule was Jangmo-o only shows up at the pokecenter (critically injured) after I get back from my first trial

        I just can’t believe that tomorrow starts Jangmo-o’s journey

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Will you be writing it up as a story?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah Jangmo-o was stolen from poni canyon as an egg and was shipped off, and on a pit stop on melemele it hatched and immediately displayed immense power enough to free itself but was quickly overwhelmed by stronger Pokemon and was left for dead until it was brought to the pokecenter

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’m think it has an unusual high aggressive and rowdy temperament

            The moment it open its eyes it was under distress and fought tooth and nail to get away but just kept fighting everything around it out of blind fear and anger, until the little dragon bit off more it could chew and got KO’d by a flock of Spearow

  • PokeVeteran

    So i ordered a 2ds xl and it should arrive by tomorrow, i plan on pokebanking 90% of my team besides rockruff im just not sure if i cant transfer my eevee eggs this way. any advice?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Trade the eggs to someone else and switch games then they trade them back to you. Eggs can’t be banked.

      • PokeVeteran

        Thanks, would you be willing to help me out with this and my houndoom mega stone?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Yeah, just let me know when. I am out most of Friday though so you might have to wait or ask someone else if you’re in a rush. Are you still breeding shiny Houndour when you get your new 2ds?

          • PokeVeteran

            yea hopefully ill get the 2ds tomorrow so i can continue trying after work until sat when i go pick up US and no rush. If sat works for you thats great.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I’m not sure, I should be around from 10.30pm GMT for a little while, the rest of the day I’m busy afaik. I’m not sure how that works out for you and your timezone.

          • PokeVeteran

            Thats about 5:30 for me which is perfect. ill just write you here?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK.

          • PokeVeteran

            update: I wont recieve my 2ds until Mon. Target just updated my delivery date 🙁

  • Ultron

    Question: Can you ride both Lunala and Solgaleo in the wormhole in either version?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I don’t think so. I believe it is like soar in ORAS.

      • Ultron

        Nooo 🙁 That really makes choosing which game to make my hub difficult..

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Yes. You’re forced to use one of them before a point but afterwards you can choose between them.

      • Ultron

        Oh, bless Arceus! Alright, Ultra Sun is my hub. Sorry, Ultra Moon.

      • Josh Omega

        Okay I am happy about this lol was aaa fraud I would have to right lunalaa when I prefer solgaleo.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Oh, well that’s better.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    https://twitter.com/JoeMerrick/status/931215307284336640
    Also he’s caught 6 wormhole shiny ‘mon today, so either he’s really lucky or they are easier to get.

    • Ultron

      But were they legendaries or regular mons?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Regular. He didn’t SR them.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Question: is quick link compatible with SuMo?

  • Ultron

    USUM, Skyrim Switch, and my Urbosa Amiibo are set to arrive tomorrow from Amazon. Also I’ll be picking Battlefront 2 up from Gamestop as well (yes, I know, I’m a horrible person for buying it, but I boycotted the first one because it sucked and I like most of what they’ve done for the second. Just not the “progression” system and the loot boxes.) And I’m off Saturday. Should be a good 2 days.

    • > Still buying BF2

      Smh

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Battlefront 2 is great, on the PS2.

      • Ultron

        I know…I’m cancer ;-; They already said they’re changing the progression system though. As greedy as a move as it was, at least they are listening. Plus they said Ahsoka is very possible as a DLC hero, I can’t pass that up

        • I think you should wait until they actually do fix the progression first

          • Ultron

            My brother would stab me if I cancelled the preorder lol

    • Monkeyfuzz
      • Ultron

        Ugh, I loved that game. Wish my PS2 didn’t die and still could play it

    • Govnah

      someone reviewed battlefront 2 and said its a buggy mess as well

      • Ultron

        Ugh, I hope not..

        • Wait for reviews and gameplay

          • Ultron

            I’ve already seen a ton of gameplay and read reviews. It’s not even really for me, my brother wants to play it more than I do. I’ll be playing US and maybe doing a round here and there.

    • ShinyXatu

      I was going to get Skyrim on Switch but I’m planning on getting the Skyrim VR bundle for Christmas, so I don’t want to double up on it. I’ll definitely pick it up next year so I can play on the go.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Oh my brother is getting me Fallout 4 virve

      • Ultron

        Coolness. They’re definitely beating a dead horse when it comes to Skyrim, but I love it so much that it doesn’t bother me. You have to let me/us know how it is with VR.

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    HELL WITH IT IM BREAKING THAT STUPID SELF IMPOSED RULE
    I WANNA USE A F**KING GLACEON

    • Monkeyfuzz

      What rule?

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        No trading
        But if I followed it I wouldn’t have one until victory road

        • Monkeyfuzz

          You could let someone else evolve it for you. Is it not an SOS call for Eevee?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Nope….

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Eevee only SOS calls Espeon or Umbreon depending on time, but it’d be cool if in future games that use the SOS mechanic if Eevee summoned the Eeveelution best suited for the environment it’s in

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh I thought it was a random eeveelution out of all of them.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I mean

      Is trading really an issue if it’s your Eevee being evolved and traded back? You don’t have the EXP boost and it’s not like Glaceon is super strong or anything. It’s just an Eeveelution, a solid team choice.

  • Unseelie Fairy

    So what’s everyones plans for tomorrow? Me and a friend or two are gonna go into town early to pick up the game and then just generally exist from there lol

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      After school, get the game and the gang of my friendos together
      No life it one day
      Invite em over the day after
      And no life it again

      • Govnah

        i thought u didnt have friends

        • I’m his friend

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          My name ain’t govnah ;3

          • Govnah

    • EarthenWarrior

      I’m going to prep my armchair to accommodate my likings
      Then leave at 8:45 to toys r us and get both copies
      Get hope and get into some comfy clothes waiting on the chair (and I’ll have my gallon of water and Cheetos puffs stored in the freezer in the basement) bust open those and have my brother’s 3ds there waiting for the trade
      Then just play play eat play, occasionally piss in a jug, play, rub one out, and keep playing until I need a break or my body no longer responds to basic nerve impulses

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Going to watch Just ice league because my friend who doesn’t care about Pokemon wants to.

    • Sunniera 2.0

      School, work, maybe go to the beach with some of my friends, pack for my flight on Saturdsy morning, and hopefully go to sleep early. I won’t be able to play USUM until Saturday.

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    “Fixed a couple of issues with display of Move Tutor moves in the Pokédex”

    Oh serebii… are you maybe talking about

    W O O D H A M M E R ?

    • Chaos

      Well Woodhammer is more exciting that Defog

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Competitively it ain’t

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So I think I may end up deciding which game I get based on the legends available. I’m gonna shiny hunt them so it depends on which shiny Pokemon I want more

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It’s tough
      US has:
      Raikou
      Ho-oh
      Latios
      Groudon
      Dialga
      Heatran
      Tornadus
      Reshiram
      Xerneas
      Solgaleo
      Buzzwole
      Kartana
      Blacephalon
      UM has:
      Entei
      Lugia
      Latias
      Kyogre
      Palkia
      Regigigas
      Thundurus
      Zekrom
      Yveltal
      Lunala
      Pheramosa
      Celesteela
      Stakataka

      US has more that I want but UM has some major ones I want too :/

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Yeah it’s a real troublesome thing…….I want Stakataka, but at the same time I want a shiny Blacephalon too…..I just don’t know……

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Well the latter is better in every way.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Trying to decide on team members.
    Passimian, Bewear or Crabominable for Fighting?
    Passimian – got some good tutor stuff but still hasn’t got Defiant, it’s defences aren’t great and it only has 80 speed.
    Bewear – is a pretty solid option but 1. I only like it shiny and I already have a shiny Bewear, 2. I might want to use Drampa and I dislike type overlaps obsessively.
    Crabominable – I’m not sure, did it get anything new that’s good? It’s very slow but I do like the thought of using an Ice type.

    I only want to use gen 7 introduced stuff.

    • Ultron

      Other members? I’m leaning toward Bewear even though I detest it. Drampa would be better tho

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Mimikyu, Araquanid, Alolan Raichu and probably Duskanroc.

        • Ultron

          Oh, do Drampa for sure then. Is it imperative you use a fighting type?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It would likely be helpful, I’d need at least a move.

          • Ultron

            Maybe Crabominable and Drampa then

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Finally! I can use Pokejungle on my mobile again. For those who don’t know I had updated my IPhone and I couldn’t access Pokejungle anymore. For those who are still hesitant to get the latest update for your iPhone here is what I did in order to access this website again. After you do the latest update, you have to power down and turn your phone back on. Then you have to clear your website history and data. It is that simple.

    • Govnah

      I updated and nothing happened

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Well that maybe because you didn’t have 90 tabs that you keep on telling yourself you are going to go back to but don’t end up doing so for a year.

        • Govnah

          You know theres a close all tabs button

          • Sunniera 2.0

            You are not getting it Govnah. I did not have the strength to press that button because of “hoard-like perspective on these tags.

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Yo Monkeyfuzz you still got that Fennekin? Sorry I couldn’t get it last night, I feel asleep 😡

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Yeah, I can be online in a moment. FC: 0748 – 2744 – 4660 IGN: James

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Great, I’ll be on in a tick, iirc I have your friend code so it should literally be a second

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Can you post yours so I can check I have it?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Sure! Jordan 2767-2720-7405

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, coming online.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            That’s me sent a request, I don’t know if I have anything super good to give 😡

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I did it at the same time :/

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Oh XD

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Thanks!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            NP, hope it helps.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            It definetly will, it’ll look good with a shiny Fennekin

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Well it does on mine 🙂

  • PokeVeteran

    did we figure out if there is anything special about totem sized pokemon other than their size?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Their weight :p

      • PokeVeteran

        So totem sized gumshoos gets wrecked by lowkick okay got it. Thanks 🙂

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Regular did tbf.

          • PokeVeteran

            Thats true lol

    • Sunniera 2.0

      They weigh more. I think?

      • PokeVeteran

        yea apparently, i was hoping its not just aesthetics

        • Ultron

          Do they not have stats boosted like actual totems?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Nope

          • Ultron

            So…they’re not even totems then, just giant pokemon?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Well I mean I thought the fact they were called ‘Totem-Sized’ and never ‘Totems’ made that clear

          • Ultron

            I thought they were just the totems left over from trials. Do the trial captains just give them to you or something? It’s kind of weird they have giant pokemon to give away, idk.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Well I mean i think them giving away one of a kind totems would be even weirder…

          • Ultron

            Are they one of a kind? I thought trial captains could train any pokemon to be a totem?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            If that’s how that’d work, they’d still be putting time and effort into raising a totem. But the way they spoke about their totems, I always took it as its an individual they raised as their auras are linked to Ultra Wormholes as theorised by Wicke

          • Nightvalzin

            Anybody recall version-exclusives of Totem-sized Pokemon?

          • Sunniera 2.0

            It is on serebii.
            US:
            Gumshoos
            Alolawak
            Lurantis
            Vikavolt
            Ribombee

            UM:
            Alolicate
            Araquanid
            Salazzle
            Togedamaru
            Kommo-o

            *Mimikyu is in both, because Mimikyu is perfect.

          • Nightvalzin

            Thanks. Would’ve liked to have Ribombee, Lurantis and Alola Marowak, but getting Araquanid, Salazzle and Kommo-o is nice too.

          • PokeVeteran

            Yup just giant rats and bugs

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            They do not. Other than size they’re regular Pokemon

          • PokeVeteran

            They do have their hidden ability

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Wait. The Totem Pokémon given to you has its hidden ability?!

          • PokeVeteran

            thats what is says on serebii

          • Sunniera 2.0

            This changes everything.

          • PokeVeteran

            yea im looking forward to mar-o-wic (alolan Marowak) and flare blitz!

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Where did you see it on Serebii? I am looking at the Gift Pokémon page and it is showing that we get the Totem-Sized Pokémon with their regular abilities.

          • PokeVeteran

            doesn’t look like all of them have their hidden ability maybe its a typo? im not sure now

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Some, like Lurantis and Salazzle, have a regular ability. Others, like Gumshoos, definetly have a hidden ability.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Oooooo I didn’t know that. That’s pretty cool I guess. As long as said ability is good anyway

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Do you know if they are Shiny Locked?

          • PokeVeteran

            that i am not sure of

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So I think one thing I am a little worried about if I pick UM is when I’ll be able to get Dusk Lycanroc. given that UM is 12 hours removed from US It would mean I’d have to get up SUPER early in order to evolve my Rockruff…..Which I’m not interested in…….Unless I’m understanding the mechanic wrong

  • MenacingCascoon

    Well what else did we expect??
    https://pa1.narvii.com/6312/fe9ab096df6d53f8dcc59dfb1da32d20a6137f2a_hq.gif
    Lillie is the winner of the Best character in SM. Obviously, she’s probably the best character of all of pokemon. Character development, strong willed, funny, cute. everything about it is so amazing about her. She was is the reason many people love Alola, including me.

    Thank you everyone for participating in the Poll of Best Character in SM. SM (IMO) had the best characters in all of pokemon. Sure the cutscenes are annoying to some people, but I really do like it. It builds the characters in the SM world. It’s like by the end you are friends with everyone. It’s not like past games where you walk into the gym and you get your badge and leave. Everyone had their quirks, and everyone was very unique which I appreciate about Alola. Definitely a great game. I can say SM were probably the best ‘first games of a generations.’ Tune in next time for the next poll where the answer probably wont be as obvious.

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Boo!

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      While I followed the directions correctly I think this poll was weirdly worded. Why not tell everyone to pick their favorite character rather than telling us to pick our least favorite. Seems a bit backwards. Either way Lillie is great and I’m happy.

      • MenacingCascoon

        Lol, idk why I didn’t do that. I guess I didnt want to make a random switch up when youre used to the opposite. Sorry

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          No you’re cool. As Sunniera 2.0 said I suppose the way you did makes some since now that I think about it. Either way it was a fun poll to see in the comments every once and a while.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Well since he wanted to get someone voted off each day, it would be troublesome if there were multiple people who were without any votes on one day.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Best girl won! Yay! 😀

    • Ultron

      Yay and then they ruined her in USUM

      • Unseelie Fairy

        In what way lol, it’s the exact same story except she doesn’t confront her mother face to face but does help way more with Lusamine’s redemption arc

        • Ultron

          her stupid team, but at least she becomes a trainer I guess instead of blueballing us like they did in SM

          • Unseelie Fairy

            She’s ruined because she’s using the best type?

          • Ultron

            she’s ruined because she’s not a mixed user, which would’ve been 100% better and more badass

          • Unseelie Fairy

            But it ties into the fact that she has a Clefairy doll and also the fact that she’s a kind of caring Pokémon, which a lot of fairy types fit for. Besides she’s only in the battle tree where type specialists are more common, besides like one battle in Aether

          • Ultron

            then give her a friggen chansey 😛

          • Unseelie Fairy

            No. Get yourself a better taste in types and bow down to the best fairy user of all time 👁‍🗨👄👁‍🗨

          • Ultron

            Pfff you’re as biased as I am. I like fairy, but we didn’t need another fairy specialist 😛

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Fairy only had two specialists before Lillie, the least of any type 👀

          • Ultron

            I don’t even want to hear it. Fairy got a gym leader before dark did (and still technically doesn’t)

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Because the better types get gyms

          • Ultron

            Oooo, girl, you gonna catch these hands!

    • MenacingCascoon

      Looking at this gif, Who did Lillie’s bangs?? They are uneven. She’s not best girl anymore

      • Ultron

        Homegirl probably cut them herself

    • Your Welcome

      Happy she won

  • Alexander0903

    So the event Rockruff is able to breed to get other Rockruff with Own Tempo. Thank the Lord. I was scared it was gonna be another Ash greninja situation.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I think it was the way it was announced that everyone thought this.

      • Alexander0903

        Yeah thats true. It was shown almost like it was the very first shown but apparently according to the dex entry its just a super rare occurrence

    • InfinityD4

      Another Ash Greninja Situation would be a Pointless Pokemon Forme for ONE POKEMON OUT OF A SET OF 3 JUST BECAUSE SATOSHI NEEDED AN ASS-PULL. at least Mega Sceptile and Mega Swampert joined Mega Blaziken in ORAS

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I think you meant ASH-PULL.

        • InfinityD4

          Satoshi-Puru, Tajiri-San Puru?

  • Ultron

    WAIT WAIT WAIT. Hold the phone. Professor Burnet is actually white?? So she’s just tan from being in Alola?! I feel betrayed, just like when I learned stupid Marlon is white. I mean, I guess it’s my own fault since she’s originally from like 2012, but still.
    http://static.pokemoncrossroads.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/07205420/SMTrailer-1.jpg

    • Monkeyfuzz

      She’s from 2012? Marlon is white?

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Yup if you look at his feet and just above his swim suit he clearly has tan lines

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Or vitiligo.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I guess……but what are the odd GF would make a character have that kind of pigment problem? haha

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Idk, thought it might help people accept it. Also those are weird tan lines on his feet.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Yeah I’m not sure why they made his feet white (pale). If his feet are mostly uncovered most of the time why wouldn’t they be tanned too?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It is so weird.

          • Ultron

            Honestly it doesn’t even make sense his feet are white if they’re exposed unless he wears shoes all the time. Either way, gamefreak made it a point to say that he’s white by designing him that way. I just don’t know why he couldn’t be black?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It makes no sense, for his feet to not be tanned there he’d have to have the top of his feet covered and not the bottom, how would he even achieve this?

          • Ultron

            Yeah, idk, I guess the only explanation is that he recently changed footwear

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Because the point of the design is to show that he’s exposed in a sunny area all the time which is easier with light skinned races because their tans are way more noticeable

            Was the tan poorly done? I’d say so, but the idea makes sense.

          • Ultron

            Oh, yeah, the idea makes sense, but really my issue is that they made the tan so dark that he looks black. Hence why people here are still learning he’s white lol. So yes, poorly done as you said

      • Ultron

        Yep, She came from the dream radar app with B2W2. And look at his stupid feet and waist!
        https://cdn.bulbagarden.net/upload/thumb/e/e2/Black_2_White_2_Marlon.png/200px-Black_2_White_2_Marlon.png

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Oh yeah, I never got the dream radar and don’t remember anyone mentioning that she had appeared before.

          • Ultron

            Yeah I never got it either. Probably part of my problem.

        • *TRIGGERED* Damn it!

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      How did you not know this? She’s been around for 5 years

      • Ultron

        Idk, I guess I thought she was tan then too.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      You do realise that tan isn’t a race, right? :p

      • Ultron

        Well, duh, but I assumed she was an islander race of some sort. (I don’t know how to define races in the pokemon world, exactly..) Point is I thought her skin was naturally that color, not a tan.

    • Chaos

      Wait, Marlon is white?

      Damn it Gamefreak

      • Ultron

        It’s so stupid because I’m not even positive you could get such a dark tan

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Idk…….I’ve seen some white people with VERY dark tans……It usually doesn’t look very good……

        • Unseelie Fairy

          You don’t get blue hair naturally either, welcome to anime art style where things are exaggerated for the point of design :p

          • Ultron

            Shhhhhh….

    • Wait Marlon’s WHITE?!?! Since when?

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Ugh…..now idk Should I go with Midnight Lycanroc instead of Dusk? I’ve never liked Midnight’s mouth (it looks weird), but the more I look at Dusk the more I think that maybe it’s not worth it? I like Midnight’s overall look more. I can also just breed a Rockruff with the fang moves or whatever………Reasons for going with one form over the other GO!!!!

    • Unseelie Fairy

      One gets the elemental punches whilst the other gets Drill Run/Iron Tail/Zen Headbutt

      Depends on what coverage you need. One’s an alternative to Midday Lycanroc and the other outclasses Midday

    • Alexander0903

      Dusk is 2 points stronger than both other forms but its still technically slower than midday. But still faster than midnight.

  • Browserboom

    Does Lillie have a team in USUM?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Clefairy, Comfey, and Mimikyu. You never battle against her, just with her.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I see that she has the best Pokémon on her team.

      • Browserboom

        Does she seem different in USUM?

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          not until later in

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        not counting battle tree

    • Chaos

      From what little i’ve seen, Lillie seems to be the exact same character as from SuMo

  • MenacingCascoon

    Another Question regarding Top 10s. So If youre making a top ten of each pokemon type, would you just only catergorize pokemon with their primary type? (IE you would only put garchomp in dragon’s list, not ground, but you can appreciate it in ground) This does avoid the constant repeats, or would you say it doesnt matter.

    • Browserboom

      Doesn’t matter so people can put the pokemon in the type they want to

    • Chaos

      I would say it doesn’t matter.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      No because then your list for Flying could only reach three Pokémon max :p

      • MenacingCascoon

        Well, excluding flying lol. I’m just saying it because a lot of type lists would have repeats and may get predictable

        • Chaos

          If you want, what you could do is only place the Pokemon in the type list that it more closely identifies with. i.e Lucario I would only put in a Fighting list and not a Steel one.

    • I would keep them seperate, but idc how others do it. If one likes one way more they should do it

  • Oh god I completely neglected time and kept trying to message Seraph only to realize you all were here

    So I have a predicament
    Do I want to use Seel or Mantyke?
    What do you suggest?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Mantyke.

      • Hmm due to Mantyke just being better in every way or something else?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It’s probably better, depends if you need ice.

          • Alexander0903

            Mantine can learn ice beam anyway so that’d be my pick

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Good point.

    • PokeVeteran

      id suggest mantyke, besides the 4x elec weakness its a solid poke once it evolves

  • Chaos

    Quick question. What makes Dusk Lycanroc superior to the other two forms? Is it just because of Tough Claws or is there more?

    • Has slightly better stats then Midday

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Actually they’re considered worse

      • Chaos

        It’s slower, falling into the overcrowded base 110 speed group.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Tough Claws, 2 more in attack (the -2 speed is not that bad)

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      It’s literally just tough claws
      The only difference in stats is that exactly 2 POINTS are shifted from speed to attack
      This allows a few more pokemon such as godspeed purugly to outspeed it

      • Chaos

        That’s what I thought, I’ve seen people mention it a few times how significantly better Dusk Form is and I was confused.
        In fact I think the speed hindrance is a bigger issue that negligible attack difference. But I guess Tough Claws is good, though it doesn’t help its main STAB Stone Edge.

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Exactly
          Honestly I’m more excited for midnight. It gets perfect accuracy iron tail, the elemental punches, and foul play. It may not rise but it’ll be funner at least

          • Alexander0903

            Where was it said it gets the elemental punches?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Move tutors

          • Alexander0903

            I know it would from move tutors. I meant where did you read this information? Was it part of the leaks and serebii just hasn’t updated it yet?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            It was part of the leaks and serebii just updated today

          • Alexander0903

            But serebii doesn’t say it gets the punches yet. But they’re still updating as time progresses so I’ll be patient

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Yee

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I think you’re selling me more on Midnight now hahaha

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Tough Claws compared to Midday’s three trash abilities. It’s a free life orb for contact moves.

      • Chaos

        Tough Claws is actually nice powering up Accelerock, making Drill Run hit harder than Earthquake would have, powering up the Fang move if anyone uses them.

        But it’s just speed stat that is concerning. It now ties with the plethora of base 110s.

        • Alexander0903

          With the tough claws boost i guess you could run choice scarf jolly nature on it. Unless you wanted to use it signature z move. Then probably set up a sticky web on your opponent or tailwind for your team from one of your other pokemon

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Supposedly, according to Serebii, all the Totem given to you will have their hidden ability except for Salazzle and Lurantis. I am slightly steamed about this because I wanted to use a Totem-size Contrary Lurantis. Why Gamefreak! I didn’t think anything that you would do in these games would disappoint me GF, but I was wrong.

    • I’m upset that Totem Togedemaru is available to my brother and not me

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Burn his 3DS. Togedamaru is weak to Fire-Type attacks.

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      ….ahahahah
      AHAHHAHA
      AHAAHHAHA
      WATER ABSORB ARAQUANID
      SON OF A BITCH YOU HAD ONE JOB GAME FREAK

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Wait. Actually Totem-sized Araquanid still has Water Bubble. So you are good.

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Thank god

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Yea, sorry for the mistake. At least they got Araquanid right.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            yeee

      • Unseelie Fairy

        They wanted to punish Araquanid fans for relying on an OP ability

        All two of them

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Shush there’s way more than two

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Lana doesn’t count 👀

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I know

    • Monkeyfuzz

      The 2 that actually benefit from them don’t get them? That’s stupid.

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer
  • ShinyXatu

    My steelbook shipped…no turning back now! I’m at around half of the excitement as I was last year but it’s still something to look forward to, of course. I’m going to commit to shiny hunting this time, I PROMISE!

    • Govnah

      I just pre ordered the steelbook :3

  • WhiteSamurott

    Anybody remeber Xerosic? Might be such a throwaway character after all.

    Pale skin? Check.
    Colored “anime” hair? Check.
    Usually walks around with eye coverings? Check.

  • Alexander0903

    I wont have time to play them right away so i just decided to order both games to be shipped to me. They should be here by monday or tuesday and thats when I’ll dive into the adventure.

  • EarthenWarrior

    So I’ve made my decision
    Ultra Sun
    Incineroar
    Lycanroc Dusk
    Kommo-o
    Crabominable
    Mudsdale
    Golisopod

    Ultra Moon
    Incineroar
    Lycanroc Midnight
    Vikavolt
    Bewear
    Sandygast
    Alolan Sandslash

    • Govnah

      use a different starter

      • EarthenWarrior

        Uh no

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Decidueye is good.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Gross no, Earthen only picks what he likes and Starters are hit or miss

        • Govnah

          but like wont it get boring using the same starter that many times

          • EarthenWarrior

            Nope 😀

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Why Sandygast and not Pallosand?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Brain fart, I meant Pallossand

    • Unseelie Fairy

      > AloSlash and Vika

      I’m actual proud rn someone go hold my purse whilst I suburban white mon clap and holler

      • EarthenWarrior

        Don’t make me pop you one

        • Sunniera 2.0

          Eww.

      • Alexander0903

        I used both of them my original run through of moon and it was one of the best decisions in my pokemon career

  • Ok WTF!
    I tried to change my avatar and it keeps refusing… Why won’t it work?

    • Not exactly what I wanted, but I’m content with my new me now

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Actually may be having the same problem. I tried to update the one I have now by adding an Ultra Wormhole opening behind Poiploe and whenever I try to upload it it does nothing.

      • Mine worked now, but I think it refuses to accept edited photos

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          hmmm idk. I may try another pic to see if it changes to something completely different. It may be freaked out by the fact that the one I’m trying to swap out is so similar to the one I want in. If that even makes sense…..

  • Browserboom

    I was looking at the in game text and this was said, look at the last sentences

    What! You met my grand-nephew Blue?! Well, if that doesn’t just take the cake! It’s like six degrees of Pokémon separation![VAR 0114(0034)]
    Springing Forth from Alola I became an island challenge champion And wanted to show my vaunted skills In a far-off region. But those city Trainers were strong… So, as Champion, If I had just passed the time peacefully, I wouldn’t have had to suffer so much, I say, cursing myself, but I want to Leave my claw marks on the world— Today, too, I’ll be pushed by my partner To exact revenge for yesterday. Rise with my remaining strength… Yes, springing from Alola…
    Some Myriad Z-Move Notes The vigor and strength of the Trainer combine with their Pokémon, as they bring everything out of one another in a move. Thus came the Z of Zenith.

  • Govnah

    pre ordered the collectorz for ps4 but hoping it still has a chance to come to the switch

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    How does Midnight Lycanroc learn the elemental punches? I’m not seeing them as a level up move, egg, or Tutor move. Am I missing something?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Tutor, it’s Fire and Thunder https://pastebin.com/4Ed04RB2

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Ah now I see. Must have just missed it. Gotcha thanks!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It’s not on serebii for some reason.

  • Hmm Idk what do you guys think of me in my new Light? (Get the joke)

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Looks cool. Where’d you find the art? Google?

      • Yep and aww

        The joke was because I have enLightened and its a Morelull

        I guess they weren’t so bright

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          No I got it. Sorry I internally got it and didn’t say so…….lol

        • Monkeyfuzz

          How…illuminating.

    • I don’t get the joke

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Ok that’s prof pic is cute :0

  • Sunny Mahmud

    When you finally are somewhat free of exams in time for USUM’s release, only to find out you totally forgot to forge your planned team X’D now to mad rush breed everything T-T

  • What do you call it when Samus Aran is introduced to a guy named Troy?

    Metroy

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I don’t get it.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Star pls

    • EarthenWarrior

      *Revs up a chainsaw*

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I swear to god my two golden retrievers are Midday and Midnight Lycanrocs. My older one is super gentle and has leaner paws and is less muscular. Meanwhile my younger one is such a butt head is always rowdy. My younger one also has unusually meaty paws. She also has a habit of using them like she’s punching. It’s really quite the remarkable those tow girls hahaha

    • BIG. MEATY. PAWS.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Of course that interests you 👀

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Well these paws ain’t for just attracting mates!

  • Chaos

    I’m confused about something so was wondering if someone can shed some light on it for me.

    Why on earth are there Pokemon (legendary or otherwise) being found thousands of light years from earth?
    Like how did they get there, how have they survived ?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Theory is parallel timelines/dimensions rather than completely unique ones, so that’s why we find these regular Pokémon there. No idea why it’s measured in light years tho

      • I heard the further you go in light years the higher the shiny chances

      • Chaos

        The light years thing is annoying me.

        Previously I was ok with it being different dimensions.

        But light years is a measure of distance…

        I guess its to simplify it so they could increase rarity the further you travel, but It still bugs me.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Because GF don’t know math and science?

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      They’re more of parallel dimensions and the fact that Pkm existing from that far away wouldn’t be too farfetched imo

      • Chaos

        Dimensions I’m ok with, but measuring it in light years just adds a layer of confusion

        • Because they want us to know we will never reach Brock

        • zess

          It only does that with the UB worlds right? If so i think its to imply that they simply don’t all come from alternative dimensions some just came from very far away.

  • Govnah

    another video game adaptation of a game from my childhood? oh no

  • Oh question about Serebii

    Are all Ultra Beasts excluding Assembly, Burst and Adhesive, unlimited redrawn so you can get as many as you want?

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Not Adhesive, Assembly, and Burst

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • Well, it’s Saturday night where I live (Funnily enough, the same time the new dubbed Super episode airs on Toonami)

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Haven’t been watching the Japanese episodes (watching the English dub instead) but have been kept up a tiny little bit on what’s happening. Feels too early for him to get back into things. They should hold off I think, but oh well….

  • Vinnilala

    Hey, I was wondering if anyone knows wether you need to catch all the legends in order to obtain the shiny charm?

  • All these stupid video game movies and still no adaptation of To The Moon

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Game Sync is back on.

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Oh? Hmm…

  • Govnah
    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Good to know. I’ll have to keep my eyes open when the time comes

    • Monkeyfuzz

      So it is unavailable with its’ HA in these games?

    • I want it so bad

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Hmmm . If I end up using Midnight Lycanroc that means two things. First I’ll have to play UM. That would certainly help me with my indecisiveness. The other thing is that it means I wont have anything “new” on my team. It really would have been nice if there were other new forms (specifically regional ones….). It feels kind of sad to not have anything crazy new on my team that I couldn’t already have in SM. I guess them’s the breaks tho. I might actually go for Midnight. It’s a cool form and could be fun to use. Plus again it reminds me of my baby dog whom I love so much.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You can always get help with evolving though.

  • Sunniera 2.0

    It’s 8:15 am in Japan. PJ is probably having a blast playing USUM right now. Happy for you PJ!

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Nah he’s prolly working. He’s a teacher so school is prolly in session.

  • Sunniera 2.0

    On Serebii.net one of the stickers is located in the Poni Gauntlet. Does this mean that 100 Stickers Totem is not available until Post-game?!

    • EarthenWarrior

      makes sense

      • Sunniera 2.0

        But I wanted to use Totem Kommo-o in my main story team…

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well you thought wrong

          • Sunniera 2.0

            I know. Man I am going to have to rethink my team. Yes it has to be Giant. What do you think about Bewear, would that be a good replacement?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            As long as it has Fluffy.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Why would anyone not use Fluffy?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I know but just making sure you check it has it.

          • When your Cuddles the Beware (I wasn’t picky during SuMo and had a good time)

          • I honestly think if he’s going for a Z-Crystal using Beware I suggest Klutz (You don’t take super effective from Fire and Z moves work even with klutz)

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Might as well use Cute Charm, Klutz is ew, the defensive boost from Fluffy is worth the Fire Weakness.

  • Tick

    so excited for tomorrow

  • Celestial Decidueye

    i have to wait till 12:00am EST to get my copy of ultra moon. DX i know its only like 5 hours which if you think about it isn’t that long but still i cant wait!!!

  • Celestial Decidueye

    Honestly I’m just going to stay up all night to play it. Sleep is no longer important 0.0

  • EarthenWarrior

    I have a very big problem
    WHERE WILL I DISPLAY MY GAME BOXES?!?!??
    My mantle is filled up!!!!!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e48f82f51904a586c4bdccdd1752fd8001a7c865dec42b2076e11f7d9908cbd9.jpg

    • Maybe on the arch? Or on the other side seperate from the Zelda game

      • EarthenWarrior

        That’s my window… Maybe I will just put them over there

    • Tape it to your window.

    • ShinyXatu

      You have to start sticking them on the ceiling.

      • EarthenWarrior

        I kept telling myself to add an extension but no I was lazy and vertically challenged (I don’t like being on step stools)

    • Celestial Decidueye

      thats impressive…

      • EarthenWarrior

        If I had the room I’d display all my game boxes, I want one of those blockbuster racks or something to display em

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Shelves

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Linoone gets Extremespeed as an egg move now, watch out everyone.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Still has to survive after using Belly Drum

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I wasn’t being that serious.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well trust me it can totally surprise ya if you aren’t prepare
          A move that has the highest priority and stab with 4x attack

          Pretty much anything will have a bad time unless you have a rock, steel and ghost

  • Fedex

    Monkeyfuzz I need help!!

    • EarthenWarrior

      Wipe front to back

    • Monkeyfuzz

      What with?

      • Fedex

        If you don’t mind I need help evolving my Kadabra in ORAS.
        I was gonna keep it as a Kadabra but im having doubts ill get past the e4!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Can you do it right now? I need to sleep soon.

          • Fedex

            Yes I’m ready.
            Do we have each others details??

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Not sure, here FC: 0748 – 2744 – 4660 IGN: James

            I have you!
            FC: 1049 – 3838 – 8617 IGN: Ash

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, coming online

          • Monkeyfuzz

            You want it to learn calm mind?

          • Fedex

            I have the TM and plan to use it to obliterate the e4 but thanks!
            Also I love how you traded a Porygon!
            And a million thanks!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            That’s OK, I thought I might as well evolve another Porygon whilst I was here, hope that was OK.

  • Wait not sure if anyone saw so I’ll post again

    It says UB’s other than Adhesive, Assembly and Burst, respawn after each successful trip to their world. Does this mean you can catch an unlimited amount of them? Or am I wrong?

  • Fedex

    Earthen the warrior I summon you!!

    • EarthenWarrior
      • Fedex

        Sorry for disturbing you master (evil grin)
        My initial pre order from Amazon got cancelled for US.
        So for the first time in maybe 9 years I’ll be going in store to pick it up.
        It reminded me of the plans you posted.
        Arghhh I shall hike it there on ma alolan goleemm! 👊

        • EarthenWarrior

          The hell are you going on about?

          • Fedex

            Basically my pre order for ultra sun got cancelled. So I will be going in store to buy a poke game for the first time in about 8 years.
            Which reminded me of what you posted earlier, your plans for tommorow to get the games!
            Makes sense?

        • TheNintendoChip

          Haha I’m the exact opposite, I always go to a store to get them 🙂

  • @spectralseraph:disqus, I summon thee
    Watch me swooce right in

  • I’m real upset rn

    My crush just blocked me on Instagram… and I’m literally just sitting crushed and alone at home. I need a hug and someone to talk to about it with

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Why did they do that do you know?

      • Idk I never did anything wrong

        She said she was bored and wanted someone to talk to and asked her how she was doing. And then she blocked me. Unless there is something I have done unknowingly that upset her then I did absolutely nothing

        • Did she know it was you

        • TheNintendoChip

          I would never want to be with someone who acted like that. I know it hurts, but consider it lucky that happened.

          • I was told to not say from her friend, but I’ll put in spoilers
            She has some form of PTSD and depression so maybe she did it due to that Idk

          • TheNintendoChip

            My girlfriend has similar issues. She does not do that. Sometimes she would want to not feel lonely and want friends, which is completely normal. It isn’t normal to ask to talk to someone, and them block that person after they’ve helped.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            At least you reached out, perhaps in her own time she will give a reason or change her mind.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Maybe it was accidental? I don’t have the app so idk how easy that is to do.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Been there it hurts, just give it time and don’t go nuts asking her to unblock ya,

      • I kinda want to ask her why. Not even to unblock me, just what reason did I give her to basically ignore and loathe me

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well try to do it as subtle as humanly possible, trust me.

        • Sunniera 2.0

          I second Earthen’s opinion. People usually assume that others can read between the lines when in reality We are not infallible. If you want to ask to understand where you went wrong, I would actually advise not to do that right now or to actively seek out answers. If you pass by this person later you can ask later when you feel you can do it naturally. Or if given time and accumulation of experiences, you may come to the answer naturally.

        • Sunniera 2.0

          I made my comment before reading under the spoiler tag you put up. Everything I said I still stand by except I stand a little less by my last statement about naturally coming to the answer through an accumulation of experience. This may be more of an internal issue which probably should not be broached.

          • I just don’t get how I could envoke something

            I never even heard of her name till this year. But Idk maybe I tried to hard to be a friend only to push myself far away

            I just realized if my friend is still having the party and we both will be there… at this point I might just give her a gift and leave (if I do get over this girl or come to terms, I want nothing to do with her)

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            NO!!!!! Don’t do that. Dude listen…..don’t let this ruin you having a good time. Stay at the party. Don’t even give her a hint it bothers you. Just hang out with your friends and have a good time. The only way you’ll meet someone is by being yourself and being with the people you care about. If she see’s the really you then maybe things can change. And again if things don’t change then that’s ok too. It’ll all work itself out, but you can’t let this one thing dictate how you live your life. Just live the way you want and everything will fall into place one way or another.

          • Only problem is its her friends so it probably will mean I’ll know her and Boyfriend only and they definetly will get to be the center of attention (Then again her party, I wouldn’t care if she got the spotlight)

            And the fact I was willing to do something that I have never wanted to do (Ice skate) just to talk to this girl and get to know her. only to now know I will sit in a room of people I don’t know at a thing I don’t particularly like for someone who will ignore me or dislike me the whole time… (Sorry I feel like I’m being so negative)

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            No it’s fine you’re having a rough day it seems. Maybe if you go to the party you’ll find other people you can talk to. Maybe someone else that likes Pokemon even! It’s never a bad ting to meet new people. Worst case scenario you stick around for a little while and then take off a little early. You’ll still be there for your friend, maybe meet someone new that you share interests with, and maybe even have a little bit of fun. Ice skating is a good time too! If it’s your first time I get it’s scary, but once you get on the ice and try it out it can be a good experience. Trust me as someone who was VERY introverted when in school I get how you feel. Going to a party where you barely know people can be nerve wracking, but you may find you might meet someone. Hell maybe if you stay the party for a little while you may even meet someone new and hit it off with them. Maybe even another girl in which you KNOW you have stuff in common. At least give it some thought. You may end up regretting not staying later on down the road.

          • I will go now just for this experience. Thanks Buddy

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            No problem. Let us know how it goes! Just try and have fun. No pressure!

          • Yet I think it’s on the weekend of the 24th?

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Weekend after Thanksgiving huh? That’s a weird weekend, but I guess if that’s when her bday is that’s when her bday is.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            I think that is the best move. It might not be the easiest, but in the long run it will benefit the most number of individuals including yourself.

        • Fedex

          You dont know if she loathes you. Maybe shes having issues at home. You cam never be sure.
          And if she does loathe you good so what let her loathe you, youre strong and these minor things wont affect you!
          If you let hate effect you then what will you do in more serious situations in life? Be strong oh jungler!

    • ShinyXatu

      I’ve experienced so many depressing situations related to non-relationships that I’m just numb to the whole idea of relationships now. At least you’re not me.

    • Fedex

      Friend! As an older jungler (assuming you’re younger than me) my advice to you don’t worry. Literally just laugh.
      It may seem hard right now, crushes and love can be painful especially in early days but you’ll grow up and find the one who deserves you and one day you’ll look back and laugh at this!!!

      Don’t let it bother you! Show your mental strength! You’re better than this! You can get through this!
      Value yourself! Believe in yourself!
      Back in my school days I used 2 get nervous maan I screwed up so badly youd never imagine but it helped me in long run

      BASICALLLY with all due respect dont let a woman control your life and emotions.
      You’re young! Youve got a life ahead of you more and better opportunities will come.

      Trust me fam if you was here I’d set set you straight.
      If she has blocked you then with all due respect is that someone you want 2 share ur life with, someone so unpredictable and one who blocks you?
      She isnt ur boss!Youre equal so you deserve to be treated with respect

      FAM dont bring urself down and lose ur self value over others.
      People should respect you!
      It works both way.
      Man up and go with the flow.
      You’ll find your girl trust me to the moon and back ur issues is what eveey guy and girl go through
      Im here any questions ask!
      And just relax

      • It just upsets me so as unlike so many around me I fail at relationships because I feel like no one (excluding a select few) really likes me and that it will always stay that way

        • Fedex

          Oh shut up maan.
          Thats a lie.
          Thats imo a lack of self confidence.
          DONT base ur life on people liking you as youll always be let down.
          Practice emotional strength and independence!
          Be a man who can stand alone.
          And dont try too hard thats where you fail let it happen naturally.
          Youre young its not like youre a 50 year old opportunities will come.
          Also DGAF about others let others succeed in having a million girls. Dont compare ur situation to others. Everyones life is different.
          If you focus on urself in building confidence, mental strength and character and uh chasing ur goals e.g. career, the women will come running after you.
          Do NOT be weak and clingy or desperate that always fails.
          Look women and men respect and desire those people who are confident, have a presence and in your case a dominant BUT BUT respectful one. Look after ur appearance,be responsible for ur life family and beliefs then people will respect you and as you continue to improve more and more avenues will open.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      HUGS!!! Sorry friend. Any reason why? Could have been a mistake. It’s not like someone would block you if they didn’t think something was up.I’m not saying something is…..I’m just trying to figure out why they’d do that……ok I’m gonna shut up now………

      • Its ok

        I honestly don’t see what I did.
        When she was upset I told her “that I hope she gets better soon” she deleted the message. When she was bored, I said we could chat blocks me after. Never talked to her much

        One single thing that could be a thing is that she thinks I just stared at her, which is half true. I glance at her occasionally in the one class we have together (even though can’t do that as she sits in the back of my row) and a lot of the other times is because she walks into my line of sight

        I don’t giving encouragement, liking her posts and accidentally looking in her direction really is a reason to block me

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Hmmm well best of luck guy. These things can be tough sometimes. School life can be hard. Just gotta pick yourself back up, dust yourself off, and keep on keeping on. I agree with what the others said below. Don’t go chasing after her her super hard now. If it’s meant to be things will will work out. The harder you push right now the weirder things will be between you two. Just gotta play it cool. Given time it may all make sense. If it doesn’t then that’s ok too.

    • Fedex

      Another thing. We all fall in love but in the end do you know what matters?
      The girl you end up spending your life is one you can trust, who will lopk after you and someone who will be there to the end.
      Looks and crushes dont matter then coz that’s when true love appears.
      In other words you’re battling small issues here, your time will come.
      Your priority is to be mentally strong and uh have a dominant but respectful personality.
      That’s what she will like or any girl is to see youre independent ur a man/guy who can direct, who has self confidence, who isnt clingy cos they hate guys who are clingy.
      Be a superstar, a millionaire whatever motivates you chase that and girls will follow including this one .
      But if you mope around it wont change anything, in fact it will depress your life and make her and others respect you less.
      If you strengthen up, gather ur wisdom, lead a independent goal chasing productive life make urself a better person you’ll have a flock of girls chasing you.
      Thats my experience and advice for you.
      Trust me you will get through!
      This is nothing hahahaha xD

    • Fedex

      Also you come across to me at least as a soft and emotional/good hearted person.
      Awesomee! That’s great just like me (except the heart) do not change.
      BUT what needs to change is you need to have boundaries that others cant cross.
      Dont be a slave to others.
      Be firm but nice
      Have authority but with respect
      Be strong yet forgiving
      Its a rough world out there so you need to have mental strength and strength in ir character.
      Guess how to get it? Easy. You only you can by constantly making effort on urself and always self reflecting e.g how have i improved, ok so what can i do to improve etc

    • TheReece25

      Why dis they block you though?
      Did you invade their personal space?
      You were only a crush, not a relationship.. so it sounds very possible.
      Just move on…
      Time will heal.
      Someday you’ll have a true relationship to cry over 😅

      • Thanks and I actually got another little Ray of hope

        Her friend who is also my friend (the one who’s having the party) told me she normally doesn’t do this and is going to look deeper for me to help me. Why do I question my friendship with her? She like the coolest female friend I have irl

  • TheNintendoChip

    Anyone know if the Battle Agency is confirmed to be singles only? Doubles is my favorite format (apart from rotation, but I don’t get my hopes up about ever seeing it too much again)

    • I think I saw doubles, but I’m not quite sure

    • Dicie

      I think only singles, but I could be wrong.

    • TheReece25

      I loved rotation as well!

  • Sunniera 2.0

    So because I can’t settle on a team and new information that I learned about Totem Pokémon, I am starting with UM and here is my team. Please let me know about your thoughts.

    -Astolfo the Primarina (Male) Again, Dae points to anyone who figures out the reasoning behind this naming scheme.
    -Pearl the Toucannon (Female) I forgot if the crystal gems actually identify with a gender. If not, could someone please let me know so I won’t have to spend extra time looking for a female Pikipek. I would also like to hear Star’s opinion on this nickname.
    -Drunk Ubear the Beware (M/F) I had to get some help for this nickname. I think that I am quite happy with this one.
    -Varazzless the Salazzle [Totem] (Female) i based this nickname on the genus name of the Komodo Dragon. Salazzles are female and draconic in appearance so I added the -ess of dragoness at the end. Yes I like Komodo Dragons.
    Thor the Togedamaru [Totem] (M/F) I don’t want to reset for gender unless it really pertains to the nickname and there has been a male and female Thor in the Marvel comics so less work for me.
    Loki the Mimikyu [Totem] (M/F) Same reasoning for Thor.

    I will let y’all know about my US team later.

    • Monkeyfuzz
      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Fun Fact: Zoidberg never once said the phrase “Why not Zoidberg?” in the series.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          OK, I just thought it looked funny.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            It is funny. Didn’t mean to be a bummer….. ;p

        • EarthenWarrior

          E-A-R-T-H-E-N Eaaarrrthen
          E-A-R-T-H-E-N Eaaaaarrrrthen
          Saying E A R Theeeeeeeeeeen

      • Sunniera 2.0

        If you are referring to my US team, I already have a team planned out, but by the time I get around to it I am not sure if I am going to stick with it. I will probably getting around to unveiling it once I commit to nicknames for all of them. That seems to be the factor that solidified them as team members.

    • Dicie

      I also plan to use Bewear! Overall well-balanced and diverse team.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Thanks. Yea I made a last minute change and added Bewear since I found out that a Pokémon I wanted to use was locked post-game.

        • TheReece25

          Y a male primarina?

          • Sunniera 2.0

            It is based off of the best Male character that looks like a girl this anime season.

          • TheReece25

            Lol. Ok

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Yea, I know that for whatever reason gender is a touchy subject with Primarina. I don’t care about that. I just thought of a nickname that fit how much I liked Primarina and the gender was just so that I would stay true to the name.

          • TheReece25

            Certain Pokemon should be one gender only… But maybe nowadays that would give bad press. Unless it came with good reason like Salazzle.. I think that’s the name… 0_0

          • My competitive Primarina is a beautiful boy >:/

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Whelp it’s the final night before USUM and I think I’ve made my decisions…..I’m going with UM and I’m gonna use Midnight Lycanroc. It’s been a long journey for me, but I think I’ll be happier this way. So here’s my team. (as if I haven’t posted this before in some fashion lol) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/601ef36f49b8eb6419b5745d864a08b8e85203b3c191773683a70ee53ceca757.png

    As an added bonus here’s another team I put together a really long time ago for Primarina. Maybe if I ever play through US later on I can use this team. That or it’ll be my team in 15 years when we get a SM remake haha
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/26a7b17b7039a323d77655de3d4197a454227632f45bc486b491c8443454d8bd.png

    • Monkeyfuzz

      The first team is way better in general.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I also enjoy the first team which is why I’m using it. The second team is a bunch of Pokemon I’d like to use, but their all basically B team Pokemon for me….Well I guess actually they’re the C team since I’m going with the top team in UM this time making them the B team. hahaha

    • Ultron

      First team is better

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Apparently so haha

    • TheNintendoChip

      You’re making really want to use Krookodile & Araquanid instead of Lycanroc (Dusk) & Ambipom lol

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Aipom is late/post game btw so you’ll either have to wait or trade it in some way.

        • TheNintendoChip

          I know, but thanks anyways. I was planning on snatching one from the GTS and then breeding my own.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        One day I’ll use Aipom. I love Aipom so much, but it’s one of those Pokemon that is forever out of my reach when building a decent team…..I wish Ambipom looked better…..and was part fighting or something……

        • TheNintendoChip

          Agreed with the part fighting. Or at the very least not just Normal only

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I also end up not using normal types. Normal type has always been a weird type for me. Many of the normal type mons have decent designs, but ultimately you’re gonna end up putting other kinds of attacks on them At that point why not just use a Pokemon that gets STAB from the attack……..

          • TheReece25

            They get immunity to ghost and Stab normal. I mean, people put other type moves on most Pokemon. It’s no different. It won’t be super effective is what u mean I guess.. but they have it her qualities and good power and stats typically
            Plus many normal moves have high power… Giga impact
            And only fighting is super effective against it. Really balances out

        • Ultron

          Aipom is one of the cutest pokemon ever

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            It really is

        • TheReece25

          So weak… Unbelievable it was ever a stand alone Pokemon. I felt the same

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Gotta go to sleep now, hopefully I can get the game tomorrow after seeing Just ice league.

  • Ultron

    Why does Zeraora have Volt Absorb…

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Why not?

      • Ultron

        Idk, it just seems like a huge waste for a new ability or something at least beneficial

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          ^^^^^^^^^^^^

          • Ultron

            I knew Seraph would have something to say about this lol

    • EarthenWarrior

      plasma fists turns normies into electries

      • Ultron

        I can’t see that being that helpful. So its ability is only viable if you’re facing a pokemon with a normal move that you turn into an electric attack, either forcing a switch, forcing them to use a different move, or if they’re dumb enough, they’ll heal you

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well tough

          • Ultron

            I’m just saying it seems too conditional to be that useful. and again, it should be electric/fighting

          • EarthenWarrior

            Den they’d have two fighting mythicals

          • Monkeyfuzz

            They’ve had multiple Psychic ones before, not really a problem.

          • EarthenWarrior

            In the same gen?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Jirachi and Deoxys.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Meloetta Victini

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh yeah and those too.

          • Ultron

            Keldeo and meloetta share the fighting type as well

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Also that.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          You can also switch in on a predicted Electric attack. It would likely have benefited more from Lightning Rod

          • Ultron

            true, but there are probably better volt absorbers out there

          • Monkeyfuzz

            There are. It could have had a new ability or a better one. Defiant could have been good for example.

          • Ultron

            yeah. All well, still looks cool

        • TheReece25

          Or double battles.. make your other Pokemon hit it .. I think discharge hits everyone on field

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Probably because Plasma Fists makes Normal moves electric, which I assume includes the opponent?

  • Deerlia
    • Monkeyfuzz

      You’re using 5 Unown F? ;P

      • Deerlia

        it describes my current situation against hedlok in arms… FFFFF…

      • I would seconded it, F is my favorite Uknown as it was the first one I ever caught

    • I’m choosing Popplio, mainly because I already chose Litten for Sun

      • Deerlia

        I only want popplio if it’s female deer, it’s hard being a male Primarina, i bet…

      • ShinyXatu

        I’m going to be using Rowlet for the first time, I’m excited!

        • TheNintendoChip

          Same here!! I used Popplio in the first b/c I loved Primarina, but I also really wanted to use Rowlet.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      A solid well rounded team imo. I think the game will be almost too easy for you

    • ShinyXatu

      Your ending team better include 6 Unowns. That Litten is amateur hour.

      • Deerlia

        …i had six, but the last one died in a plane crash…

        • ShinyXatu

          Let me guess, the location of the crash is still…

          …Unown?

          • Deerlia

            Yes, actually… they were in the military, have you ever heard of the unown soldier?

          • TheUltraMonster6893

    What’s your favorite Pokémon?

  • EarthenWarrior

    I am so beyond tired, but I gotta wait to go to bed
    I just know I’m gonna wake up extremely early like 5 or even 4 and not get a wink

  • Kneesus

    Will pokebank be available immediately?

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Prolly not. If it was gonna be it would have been announced for an update by now and people would have access to it already due to the game being out in most of the world already.

  • Anyone know what Fairy, Ultra Monster and Fedex’s favorite Pokémon are off the top of their head?

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Oh god I hate this question……….It’s always so tough to answer……..For now I guess let’s just say Typhlosion haha

      • Ok I’m so glad you didn’t say Adhesive. I looked all over Google and not one picture comes without background

    So why is another one of my comments awaiting moderation. I am quite concerned since I banned globally yesterday because I pretended to be a spam account?

      • TheReece25

        Maybe you can’t make long posts now..

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      It’s still technically there. It’s just hidden unless the person reading clicks the view thingy. Weird tho seeing as it wasn’t hidden before when you originally posted it.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Yea, I am more concerned as to why this is happening. I made a joke by copy and pasting a spam’s account text on a reply to Seraph because he was complaining about Spam accounts. And I got banned globally, I just want to know how did this happen so I don’t get faulted for something that I did not intend and have this account banned.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Well I’m sure if you talk to one of the mods they can do something about it if there’s a problem. Not like you’re a problem child here or anything.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Yea, thanks. How do I go about contacting them quickly?

  • TheReece25

    I’m sad I likely won’t play. .. dunno if I’m willing to pay for a new 3DS charger knowing I’ll never buy another 3DS games again… And I just got Another Switch Game…. Lol.. Shovel Knights..
    So ugh…

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      It’s ok friend. Honestly all you’re really missing in the long run are the new mons and forms and even then they’ll prolly be made available when the Switch game comes out anyway.

      • TheReece25

        I know… I was planning on just creating a Gen 8 team for the switch game.. play that . Transfer it to whatever bank they’ve created when done. Minus Togetic, And then repeat for all previous gen teams.
        I keep and plan all my teams on an app
        I also plan to gen to make it quick lol

    • You maaaay wanna just get the charger just to keep your Pokémon bank subscription for Pokémon Switch

  • Hey still anyone know what Fairy or FedEx has as a favorite? I really wanna just throw fairy as a Sylveon and FedEx as Blaziken

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Cool. Do you plan on using Totem Salazzle in UM? Also what do you think of my Toucannon’s name?

    • TheReece25

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well it’s official bedtime for me, for tomorrow it begins
    Don’t burn the place down while I’m gone

    • Sunniera 2.0

      If I’m going down then I am bringing this place down with me.

  • I just want to say something

    Thank you… truly to all of you who helped me feel better over this problem I had (I’ve gone from in tears to happy again thanks to y’all)

    I know I say it alot or often, but I really do appreciate you guys being there for me when I have my moments of self-doubt, lack of confidence and the works. I just feel like I can tell you guys anything I can’t tell anyone else because you listen and care about my problems

    So really from the bottom of my heart thank you all and give you this (I know it’s super pixilated, but this is the Zenith of my phones ability to do stuff)

      Nice choice of words. Especially that last sentence.

      • Thank you and how do you like the portrait I made?

        • Sunniera 2.0

          I quite liked the spacing between the Pokémon. There are quite a number of Fire-type Pokémon on this site.

    • Well, I contributed to nothing, but I’m glad you’re feeling better.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

  • Well its time for me to go to bed so good rests and see you tomorrow while we all play USUM!
    Goodnight folks

  • I’m both happy and sad about tomorrow.

    Happy: I GET TO PICK UP US AND UM!!!!

    Sad: I have test(s) to study for, and must exercise the willpower to not play them. 🙁

    • TheNintendoChip

      Ahhh yes I feel you! College kind of gets in the way sometimes like that.

  • Hate to bring the down The mood here, but apparently Hiromi Tsuru (Voice Of Bulma) just died. She was only 57

    • Sunniera 2.0

      How did this happen?! What are they going to do?!

  • Govnah

    Im ready. got its we are set. end of a era

    • ShinyXatu

      Excited for tomorrow to get mine! I really think Game Freak came around from XY to make something really special with Sun/Moon and USUM, despite what some critics say. I’m proud of them and even though Gen 8 may be equivalent to Gen 6 in terms of quality, Gen 9 will turn it around once again.

  • Josh Omega

    BOTW update built my house and finished my second Devine beast. Naborsa to be exact. Took me like 8 tries to beat the boss but I finally got it 😬 if the bosses at this point I am scared to see the final one.

    • ShinyXatu

      I’m glad you’re enjoying the game, I already have nostalgia for March when I first played it. It’s just such a pure experience, and with the new console it was just magical. I’m going to start a Master Mode playthrough sometime, but I don’t want to rush it!

      • Josh Omega

        Oh I am definitely enjoying it! Even though that boss killed me countless times and made me cuss a lot it was still fun lol this game has already topped orcarina of time as my favorite Zelda game of time which is so shocking to say! Definitely looking forward to what the game has left for me!

        • ShinyXatu

          I totally agree. I’d go beyond Game of the Year and say that it deserves Game of the Decade, although against Portal 2 that may be tough. (I can’t believe that was back in 2011…I’m so old)

  • ShinyXatu

    Hey @Sunniera 2.0 (I don’t think that works on my phone), I just had to approve a post of yours for the second time in the past day, even though there’s nothing wrong with it. Let me know if you notice anything on your end, it’s kinda strange.

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Thanks. Yea I will try to keep my eye out for whatever is going on. The first time made sense since a defense system against Spam accounts is useful due to the nature of Disqus. I am not sure what was wrong with the post on the description of my team. Maybe the dr*nk is tabooandthag is what it was.

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    I WANT THESE GAMES IM GONNA EXPLODE OF EXCITEMENT AAAAAAAAAH

  • Deerlia

    First difference i noticed, there’s a switch in your room.
    They finally get it~

  • Luigi301

    Sorry but I’m going to have to be that person again. I’ve been going through serebii, all the new links connected to USUM. And I’m sorry but I still don’t get how Joe continues to defend these games at all

    • Butter Geek

      I meaaaan, they’re really great games on their own and typical 3rd games compared to Sun/Moon. It should be more diffrent from Sun/Moon, but it’s still awesome to play.

  • Unseelie Fairy

    For anyone interested in using the Flabebe line in USUM, you find yellow in Melemele, red in Ula’ula,, blue in Poni, and the last two colours are obtained through S. O. S chains

    • Butter Geek

    God damn it god damn it all to hell every freaking time
    WHY CANT I SLEEP
    I go to bed around 10:30 and I fall asleep thinking it’s almost time and I freaking wake up a whole hour later! And I just keep falling asleep and waking up an hour later and it’s 4:30am and I just cannot fall asleep and actually freaking recharge so I don’t wake up feeling like crap and with a headache which I’m very accustomed to at this point, just waking up feeling tired, unenergized, lethargic and with a migraine (which is pretty much 75% how I feel on a daily basis)
