Niantic has officially announced the Pokémon GO Travel event!

From now until to November 26th, trainers across the globe must work toward the goal of collectively catching 3 billion Pokémon in Pokémon GO! As the week progresses, and more ‘mons are caught, rewards will start to roll out: At 500 million Pokémon caught we’ll get 2x Experience, 6 hour Lure Modules and an increase of worldwide spawns. At 1.5 billion, we’ll get the previosuly mentioned bonuses plus 2x Stardust and even more increased spawns. And if we reach our goal of 3 billion we’ll get all the aforementioned rewards plus Farfetch’d will spawn worldwide for 48 hours (Kangaskhan will spawn in East Asia as compensation)!

If the below infographic isn’t your style you can check out the fun video Niantic put together for the event, or read their official blog post.

In main game news, (much to our surprise) Pokémon Bank is already compatible with Pokémon Ultra Sun Ultra Moon! Requiring 516 block, version 1.4 of the application is now available for download via the eShop. Along this, compatibility for transfers from Pokémon Gold & Silver can now be made in Poké Transporter.

What will be the first Pokémon your transfer to your new Ultra Sun or Ultra Moon games? Excited to finally add Farfetch’d to your Pokédex in GO?

  • Butter Geek

    Just add all of gen 3 already

  • EarthenWarrior

    Of course the day I go back to showdown I get nothing but bad match ups and a hefty 5 in a row losing streak

    STRENGTH SAP IS BULLSHIIIIIIT

    • Unseelie Fairy

      It’s only distributed to weak grass mons lol

      • EarthenWarrior

        That may be so but I had the displeasure to deal with a Jumpluff on my PU team

  • Unseelie Fairy

    According to serebii, you can’t bank the totem sized mons based on USUM totems, but the SuMo sized totems are a-okay. I’d imagine this is an oversight as new Lycan, Pikachu and Ultra Beasts are all bankable and it’d be weird if only a few can transfer forward

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      Maybe Totem Sized Pokemon will be available in Gen 8 too.

  • EarthenWarrior

    In a outrageous fury I incinerated that wimpy Totem Ribombee, didn’t even try to fight back it just spammed quiver dance

    • Deerlia

      Wow, it was a tricky one for me, well done~

      • EarthenWarrior

        At first I tried to use Inferno Overdrive but the SOB had a fire berry thingy
        But in the end

        • Deerlia

          *clap clap*
          I applaud your strength this time~

          • EarthenWarrior

            THIS TIME!?!?

        • Unseelie Fairy

          It ran away from a flaming fursuit?

          • EarthenWarrior

            If you consider being reduced to a charred pile of slag running then yes

          • Unseelie Fairy

            ‘slag’

            stony waste matter separated from metals during the smelting or refining of ore

            I don’t think you know what that word means…

          • EarthenWarrior

            All that matters I inflicted major pain to a oversized bee fly

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Visual pain maybe with your ugly ass team

          • Ultron

            It ran away from a predator shooting flames from its crotch. Don’t blame it.

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Good Morning Everyone! Just got to St. Louis nearly 3 hours before my interview day. Anyone familiar with this town know about something that I can do?

    • Deerlia

      My mom used to live in St. Louis, if she was here, i would ask… Sorry deer, she is at work…

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Snow Problem.

  • EarthenWarrior

    .__. I landed a critical capture on Necrozma with a pokeball….at full health

    • Hayley Waalen

      Lucky you

  • zeldaoreonerd

    On my way to Acerola’s Trial! This game is so amazing and fun! Team Update (only missing one more member):
    Noibat Lv 39
    Infernape Lv 38
    Primarina Lv 40
    Totem Lurantis Lv 37
    Dusk Lycanroc Lv 38
    Also how many totem stickers has everyone collected so far? I think I just got to 65

    • TheReece25

      I just realized it’s Insane how quickly Ash’s Noivern evolved from an egg 0 _0

      • zeldaoreonerd

        I didn’t watch all of the Kalos anime so i just looked it up. That was a short amount of time! Kinda rushed imo

        • TheReece25

          Yes. He got him very late in the series

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I’ve got 30 almost there to getting the totem I want to use

  • EarthenWarrior

    ……I finally blacked out, some stupid Focus Blast missed Tyranitar

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Whelp time to get muh shiny charm. Gonna be fun playing through the majority of the game with the charm. Maybe I’ll actually run into a shiny by accident.

  • EarthenWarrior

    After an hour of SR I dun got me a Timid Necrozma

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Use synchronise it’s way faster

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Kind of upset some of the totem sized Pokemon are blocked by bank. I hope it’s just a glitch and will be fixed since a few of them are able to get up there. I don’t want to have to ditch my planned totem once gen 8 comes out.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Does it honestly matter?
      It’s not like your gonna be using them outside USUM

      Are you planning on sending it anywhere else?
      And Gen 8 is literally ages away so what bother getting in a tizzy now

      • Unseelie Fairy

        People like taking their teams forward in case they reset, using them in side activities, and just having them for sentimental value.

        • TheReece25

          And competitive.. it’s like using a shiny. We don’t just restart every gen.. that’s what bank is for.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I like keeping my teams whole when I transfer up. I always bring all my teams with me when new gens start. Doesn’t amtter if I use them or not.

    • Daedardus

      You can’t transfer them because gen 8 likely won’t have totem Pokémon, so there’s no point in transfering them.

      • TheReece25

        I don’t know how hard it would be to make some Pokemon bigger than others… It’s like owning a shiny. They already do something similar with pumkaboo. Their totem status would be irrelevant then.. they can just give it a Ribbon showing it previously was.
        I say all of this with no interest in owning one.

        • Daedardus

          I just don’t think they will keep the concept of Totem Pokémon and will want to do something new. It’s technically possible, but they will creatively decide against.

          • TheReece25

            I really couldn’t see a good reason why…. But yeah. Their choice.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        You can bank the ones introduced in Sun and Moon, which means they’re most likely transferable. That’s why people think it’s weird.

        • TheReece25

          U could catch sun moon totems?? I never finished game

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Totem sized Pokémon based on Sun and Moons totems is what I mean

          • Daedardus

            Hmm, don’t know about that, maybe there’s a glitch and you aren’t supposed to be able to bank any of them?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I hope they allow all them to go on, people use them in teams and you don’t need to totems to have totem sized mons especially if they reuse the same models next Gen again

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        The point is I like having all my teams together. If I can’t transfer up then it feels like I’m leaving something behind

  • TheReece25

    “Gamefreak was very nervous about doing any kind of radical departure for Pokemon, they sell so well why would you mess with that? Apparently, Breath of the Wild’s reception and the reaction to Mario at E3 was so overwhelmingly positive that it convinced them that they need to make the next Pokemon game as disruptive as those two games were. That it’s going to be as big of an innovation as those two games were.”

    • TheReece25

      Added link

    • YES OH MY GOD YES

      THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANT FROM POKÉMON SWITCH

      I mean it is really shitty hat it’s confirmed that was the attitude at game Freak but YEEEEEE

  • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt
    • UnburdenedLegume

      Gen 8 to contain solely Eeveelutions, including the starters and cover legends.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        I wouldn’t complain

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Real talk tho, gen 8 better give me my Ghost & Dragon eevelution

    • TheReece25

      Meh.. probably some phone thing or whatever.. I won’t be very interested in

    • Daedardus

      New Eevee plush line! Or mobile app.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    O-Powers & Mantine Surf are the best things in USUM man

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I dun beat the champ
    Each of my Pokemon counted the opposing Pokemon perfectly

    • Govnah

      Congrats. now go get a shiny

      • EarthenWarrior

        I’m still deciding what I wanna hunt for first
        I was thinking a Shiny Grubbin for Ultra Moon

  • UnburdenedLegume

    What ball should i use to catch Necrozma?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      A black one

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Dusk or Luxury then?

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Luxury because Necrozma doesn’t suit the green at all

        • Ultron

          Luxury because Lux means light so that fits as well.

    • TheReece25

      I say premier cuz it likes light…

      • TheReece25

        Oops premier.. tho you’ll likely Never catch it in this .. lol

    • EarthenWarrior

      I just used an ultra
      All that mattered it was Timid

      • EarthenWarrior

        …….BWAHAHHAHAHAAH ULTRA BALL ULTRA NECROZMA AHAHHAHHAHAH

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Spoilers

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          I beast balled one ;3

  • Govnah

    Chewie the tyrunt finally evolved :3

  • Chaos
  • Unseelie Fairy

    The new backgrounds, something really dumb is that they can only be used by Pokémon from that region

    Fire Starters of Old https://imgur.com/gallery/wJKZE

    • Ultron

      That is rather dumb :/

    • why is gen 6&7 so full of stupid limitations like that

  • EarthenWarrior

    Final Results
    Incineroar 64
    Lycanroc 61
    Komodo-o 69 (it was traded so it leveled fast)
    Crabominable 61
    Mudsdale 62
    Golisopod 61

    Game time: 41:57
    Time to soak in the sights, collect TMs and Stickers and focus on moving stuff from Sun to here, and to get deeper into ultra space

    • Unseelie Fairy

      ‘The game was easy’

      Is super overlevelled

      • Chaos

        Champion has Pokemon levels 58-60 no? So not that overleveled, except Kommo-o

        • He was overleveled for the entire game

    • Ultron

      Do you not have to work or something? How did you put 42 hours into a game that came out not 3 days ago? Also, why?

      • EarthenWarrior

        My fall schedule is screwy and it’s usually like only tues, thurs sometimes fri (they’re dicks and barely give me decent days)

        And it was the weekend and I’ve put in a week of chores, exercise and yardwork to get those days free

        And are you serious? I’ve been playing it nonstop

        • Ultron

          Honestly I just don’t see the appeal in essentially speed running a game. I like to take it all in.

          • TheNintendoChip

            Same. I got it on release day. I’ve clocked 6 hours and haven’t even finished MeleMele yet. I’ve been taking my sweet time 🙂

          • Ultron

            I just beat the water trial

          • Chaos

            I don’t see it as a speed run if he took 42hrs.
            Seriously how much playtime does it take to complete a Pokemon game? Just curious. Some of the older games were easily completed in under 24hrs.

            He just had the whole weekend off and spent it playing the game.

          • Ultron

            I guess binging would be a more appropriate term here 😛

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      DUDE
      WTF

      • EarthenWarrior

        Y’all sound like leveling up is wrong, is it my fault I fight everyone I see

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Dude i have 3 traded mons in my team & none of them are overleveled and i’m getting close to the E4.

  • Daedardus
    • Ultron

      I hope Isabelle is excluded from whatever main series animal crossing game is next

      • >:0

        How dare you

        • Unseelie Fairy

          She’s a little bitch

          No like, literally.

        • Ultron

          Hehe 🙂

  • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

    As expected, this is project Eevee
    http://www.pokemon.co.jp/info/2017/11/171121_cm01.html

  • Ultron

    I never realized how good Gladion’s battle theme is

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      ^^^

  • Unseelie Fairy

    What I really like about USUM is that the level curve for bosses feels like old Pokémon games when you done have the EXP Share on

    • Ultron

      Aren’t the totem pokemon the exact same levels as they were in SM though..?

      • Their call Pokémon combos and movesets make them way stronger

        • Ultron

          Yeah looking at those I actually do like the call pokemon they chose this time around

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Slight level curve increase that’s more noticeable come Ula’ula

        • Ultron

          Gotcha, I can’t say yet. Still on Akala

    • I have the exp share on and it’s still really challenging. Bosses regularly knock out half my team

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      It’s honestly very refreshing for the bosses to be challenging. Yes it’s frustrating at times, but I can’t remember the last time I was frustrated with a Pokemon game because but was hard haha

  • Oh BS! Why at 3 billion does East Asia get compensation when they already get so much

    The U.S. in Go really is on the losing end of the spectrum

    -During the event back in July we got one area where all regionals can be found, while Europe got like 10 different events that lasted a few days and Japan also got them
    -We get a dinky Farfetch’d to fill the dex, Japan gets Kangaskahn a Pokémon people would actually use
    -Japan got the Pikachu festival, we got back nothing

    Why does Go hate us?

    • Ultron

      Don’t forget Europe already got the Safari Zone event…nothing for the US.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Role reversal! Finally!

        • Ultron

          Europe gets better preorder stuff for the main games that actually matter tho 😛

          Either way we’re still sh*t on when you compare to what Japan gets.

          • Yeah exactly
            -Ho-Oh is much more powerful than Charizard from the movie event
            -They got Marshadow months ahead of us
            -Gets every event (and when another place gets an event, they get something twice as good)
            -Japan gets at least 30 event Pokémon a year, that’s at least twice as much as the other countries combined

      • Exactly! I think that people saying Europe isn’t excluded are a bit wrong

        They get tons of Worlds event Pokémon, US gets one at max.

        Oh or the fact GF gave us Charizard, gave Japan event Ho-Oh to compensate -.-

        • Unseelie Fairy

          We never got good event distributions and we were usually the last of Jap/America/Europe to get the games

          Quit complaining now that you finally know how it feels 👀

          • Ultron

            It’s just stupid GF doesn’t go the extra mile for anyone other than for their own people

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Pokemon go and preorders probably aren’t GameFreak tho

          • Ultron

            Those are the least of it, look at the events they give to Japan

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Because it’s their home country and it has a crap ton of celebrations. Of course they’re gonna have bias

          • Ultron

            I’m just saying I don’t think it’d be hard for them to put at least some of them up for wifi events

          • Yes Europe got no event for the Pikachu, but think

            Ho-Oh v.s. Charizard is not a fair trade of in any way

          • Unseelie Fairy

            ??? Europe got the exact same Pikachu event as America???

          • You did? I must have forgotten that

            But when I choose you was coming about a month in advance America got Charizard to promote it, about a month after the movie in Japan, they got Ho-Oh as a promotional event. This sounds quite unfair

          • Unseelie Fairy

            It was a boring ho-oh with nothing special

          • So was the Charizard…

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Why does it matter tho? The Charizard has more practical uses

          • It doesn’t just venting (I failed a math test and my venting is… I guess this :P)

          • You got Gold steelbook cases for USUS… We got a keychain…

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Hence why I used past tense

  • I love how Leech Seed just breaks the totem battles lol

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Any status that gradually leeches health does… It’s beautiful.

      • Especially when you also leech the call Pokémon :3

  • Ultron

    Okay, buy why does Hapu even need my help with dealing with two skull Grunts when she has a big ass Mudsdale that could just curbstomp the both of them?

    • Govnah

      because her mudsdale isn’t Earthens

      • Ultron

        Still probably trash tho >.>

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Hapu doesn’t use the Exp share

      Be like Hapu

      • I am like Hapu

      • Ultron

        Nah, I hate her

        • You hate everything nice apparently

          • Unseelie Fairy

            He hates Incineroar so it’s evident he hates everything nice

          • Ultron

            I don’t hate Incineroar, but it’s so disappointing design-wise. I used one in Moon and it was good and I used it competitively and it wasn’t bad. But like compare it to the perfection that is Torracat and try and tell me it’s a better design 😛

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Inci disappointed me as a Litten evo, but I feel like Torracat had enough hints of becoming bipedal that it didn’t bug me. I love it as an individual tho

          • Fedex

            Glad to know im not the only one who likes Incineroar!

          • Ultron

            I just don’t like the female characters from SM. They’re all either bad/boring/unexplored…except Lillie.

          • I guess but like.. Hapu is nice

            And Lusamine is awesome?

            Lillie really is just the best character though.

          • Ultron

            Lusamine in SM was not great. I still don’t understand her motivations or even her goals. Her design was good though, and her fusion form is super cool.

          • So do you

            Ms.I hate Toucannon 👀

          • Unseelie Fairy

            She said everything nice

            Not every average thing

          • I should have thought before posting again….

          • Fedex

            You hate like most things too
            Just as much as Ultron if not more

          • Lol nah

          • Fedex

            :]

          • Ultron

            Okay, I just throw the word “hate” around a lot. There are only a handful of things in pokemon I actually hate. Maybe.

          • Fedex

            Haha well i guess it’s good to be critical at times too :]

  • I started my idea for my collage project in design
    I call it “A Toucan’s Bliss” a.k.a. Toucannon irl

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/22c942bf2e59708eca7ba5f74d1380cb36d9b34686dc741900dbbac180a4bc02.jpg

    • EarthenWarrior

      What is this…toucan of which you speak
      Toucannon’s bliss

    • Fedex

      Never used Tou in SM but plan to in USUM and have just realised I really really like it!

      • What are your thoughts on Incineroar

        • Fedex

          Haha I get the feeling you will not appreciate them 😛

  • UnburdenedLegume

    What ball for Solgaleo?

    • EarthenWarrior

      Premier Ball for the whiteness
      Repeat Ball just to match the sun like pattern
      Luxury Ball because it just looks nice

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Timer Ball because it shares Solgaleo’s colour palette

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I caught mine in Heavy because the blue bubbles matched its’ faceplate and I felt it went well with the Steel typing.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Good suggestion for future playthroughs, already caught it in a Timer tho but i’ll remember it.

  • Ultron

    Do you need the new ultra beasts in order to get the shiny charm?

    • Govnah

      yes

      • Ultron

        Butts

  • Fedex

    OK glad with that bank update that was quick! I can get two of my breeded mons over to USUM.
    Can’t say who they are except they are 2 of my most iconic and extremely powerful partners that I used regularly in Johto! 👊
    Can you guys guess who they are??

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Not really because that criteria includes 200+ Pokémon :0

      • Fedex

        You’re right!
        Ok they are 2 of the stronger non legendary mons you can get in Johto.
        One is extremely hard to evolve the other you only get one but very early.
        Each compliment each other very well typing wise.
        That’s my attempt at a riddle haha xD

    • Ultron

      Ampharos, Houndoom?

      • Fedex

        Good try but much stronger like these two mons at least one are arguably strongest mon you can use in Johto:P

        • Ultron

          Tyranitar, togekiss

          • Fedex

            You’re almost there.
            The mons are a little more colourful though in design 😛

          • Ultron

            Are they Johto native?

          • Fedex

            One is the other isn’t.
            The colour blue is common in their evolution line.
            You should easily get them now!

          • Ultron

            Feraligatr & Porygon?

          • Fedex

            Feraligatr 👍
            The second is much stronger than Porygon. Arguably strongest non legend 😛

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Tyranitar.

          • Fedex

            Very closee 😛

          • Ultron

            Volcarona
            Dragonite

          • Fedex

            Yeahhhhhh 👏
            Well done dude, for that you get an early copy of DP remakes!

  • UnburdenedLegume

    I love what they done to Mount Lanakila. It actually feels like Victory Road now, sort of.

    • Fedex

      Wow can’t wait 2 see it for myself

  • Ultron

    Wait…can you not battle the trial captains anymore in USUM?? I can’t find Ilima in his house.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      you have to battle all the captains as part of Mina’s trial on Poni

      • Dicie

        That’s awesome

      • Ultron

        hm. I kinda liked how it was in SM, but I guess that’s okay

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Its extra exp & thats never a bad thing i guess

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Usual comment about not playing Go. Also yay Bank! This’ll make things much easier when I get USUM.

    • Fedex

      When you planning to get them?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Not sure, I need to before the Rockruff event ends, I just need to make sure I have the money.

  • EarthenWarrior

    …..I found Guzzlord’s domain…I don’t have the words…

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    My game is gone… I transferred my mons… years worth of comp mons down the drain…

    • UnburdenedLegume

      ??

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        I lost Ultra moon somewhere and I’ve been looking for almost an hour…

        • UnburdenedLegume

          how is that even possible

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            What do you mean?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Like how could it be gone forever if it never left the house
            It’s bound to turn up eventually

          • Exactly, just keep looking cause there’s few things that can take a game at this point

            -A Vaccum
            -A dog that likes small things
            -Garbage disposal (Highly doubtful)
            -or accidentally fell in the trash (which is easy to recover)

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I’ve literally looked through the entire trash can which thankfully was emptied yesterday

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I dunno…

          • EarthenWarrior

            Look, you WILL find it
            Maybe not now, maybe not today but it WILL turn up, and why would it be out of your DS anyway

            I don’t like it when worry sets in making everything all tense… And I don’t like seeing anybody upset unless I caused it

            So retrace your steps

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Thank you…. a ton

          • EarthenWarrior

            Anything for you Broham

          • Unseelie Fairy

            This is non ironically so cute

          • EarthenWarrior

            Huh

        • It’s ok dude it will turn up, I mean where have you taken your DS in the last few days? (I’m literally the king of losing things I can help)

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            It’s been at home and never left it

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Where do you remember having it last? Maybe it went down a crack or crevice somewhere?

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ok I’m never updating YouTube ever again I hate the new update

    I can’t even use the upload date search

  • Dicie

    Wow… Totem Araquanid is no joke.

    • Butter Geek

      That’s a spoiler for people before Lana’s trial

  • Shady

    Did pokemon sun and moon episode 50 “sub” reveal yet?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      It releases every Thursday so it won’t be for another two days bud

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    I FOUND IT

    • UnburdenedLegume

      YAY

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        😀

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Where was it?

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        MOMS CAR

        • Monkeyfuzz

          That was in your house?

    • Butter Geek

      YOU MADE ME WORRIED NOW I CAN GO TO SLEEP IN PEACE

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Hmm

  • Fedex
  • Dicie

    Here we go! Another attempt at Lana’s trial:
    Lycanroc (Dusk) – Lv. 25
    Torracat – Lv. 26
    Fomantis – Lv. 22

    Play time: just over 11 hours 🙂

    • Fedex

      Looks like you’ve got quite a challenge ahead 😛

      • Dicie

        Sure do

        • Fedex

          Good luck. Can’t say much else as I’ve not faced it yet and from what I’ve heard it’s quite challenging!

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Being genuine, what do you feel your first Pokémon would be if Pokémon were real? Like, accounting for popular pets and wild life in your area

    • Herdier or some other dog Pokémon

    • Fedex

      Probably a growlithe. It would be between dogs/cats as pets and probably wild insects so maybe a Beedril.
      But if I had to choose then growlithe all day!

    • Unseelie Fairy

      If I’m being honest, I legit feel like the starters where I’m from would be Deerling/Vulpix/Seel so I’d probably pick up Vulpix tbh 😡

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Hm, we have alot of Foxes around here, and Dogs and Cats are the most popular pets, so combining all of those maybe Eevee.

    • Rockruff

    • Butter Geek

      Mons that I imagine seeing a lot would be Murkrow, Pidove, sometimes Wingull. For pets some cat or dog mons. One of these could be my first mon, I kinda like the thought of a starter Murkrow.

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      A Rowlet probably
      I’m being serious
      It’s a bird
      And I’d find in a park or something

      Otherwise I’d be the weirdo with the Venipede

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Aren’t barn owls more country birds?

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Somewhat but to be fair, a leafy bird wouldn’t exactly be out of the question

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Leafy country bird

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Still fits
            Give me Venipede at least

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Idk where you live fam.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            In a suburb
            Bugs and poison-y stuff is everywhere
            Anime Venipedes have been seen in sewers

    • ShinyXatu

      We always have deer walking and sleeping around our house, sometimes right outside my window. I’d have to go with Stantler or Sawsbuck.

    • Pachrisu or Spearow

      My backyard is filled with them

    • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

      Probably Murkrow

    • EarthenWarrior

      Ugh I get nothing cool here
      I live near the sea so….argh just give me a Sandshrew

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        I’ll give you Gastrodon and Quagsire

        • EarthenWarrior

          Ehhh I mean personally Quagsire is really cute, but completely I want to kill it dead

          Oh fine, did you know when me and my brother were kids we begged our dad to find Tomy figurines of Quagsire and Chikorita because of the anime

          Also I TOLD YA YOUD FIND IT
          HUG ME BROTHA

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            *insert hug here*
            Ayyyyyyyyyy

            I’m getting a venipede which is good enough

  • Monkeyfuzz
    • UnburdenedLegume

      Wtf you can get multiple Apricorn balls now?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I don’t know exactly. You show him a GS VC transferred ‘mon and he gives you some, not sure how many or the limit.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Mispelling of Alola

          • Actually it just is the best region

            As much as I love Sinnoh and Johto, Unova is just perfectly designed

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I mean I like Alola more

          • EarthenWarrior

            A dead rabbit torn in half
            With its intestines everywhere

          • I found a decomposing wolf once in Greenkill

          • EarthenWarrior

            Sad, circle o life baby
            One summer I walked home from college classes and this dead cat slowly deflated each week as I walked home, you never forget the sweet pungent scent of death

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      • Rosella aayyy

          Goldeen
          Surskit
          Swanna and ducklett
          A few Squirtles

          But sadly no rough terrain where my favorites flourish

          Except……maybe my former summer home in Jersey (which is gone sadly) but that’s mostly forest and freshwater dwelling Pokemon with a lot of birds

          • Monkeyfuzz

            No Seismitoads about?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I want the surskits

      Wurmple
      Weedle
      Venonat

      Drifloon
      Oddish
      Woobat
      Zubat
      Drilbur
      Hoothoot

      This is just all I got

  • Dicie

    I never really planned out a team before Ultra Moon, so I have to make these decisions now. Would Dewpider/Araquanid be more useful than Wimpod/Golisopod?

    • Yes

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      As somebody who has used Araquanid in two playthroughs, bragged about it for the past year on competitive, and has it as their second favorite mon. Hell to the yes

      • Dicie

        Awesome 🙂 my 4th member confirmed!

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          😀
          Oh and if you want a tip, get a mon to slaughter birds, most kill him and he’s spooked of them

      • Monkeyfuzz

        What’s a good set for it? I’m thinking Adamant with Liquidation and Leech Life but not sure what else including EVs.

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          It depends, what are you running it in, doubles or singles

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Probably singles.

  • Govnah
    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      It’s a sign that your next nuzlocke will be successful

    • ShinyXatu

      Because you’re more likely to get a shiny than to not get a shiny in the Ultra wormhole?

    • EarthenWarrior

      THE WILLY POKEMON:D

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        But is it …

    • iunderstoodthatreference.gif

  • I transferred over almost everything. Left duplicates and Hall of Fame parties behind, plus some mon for friend’s I’ve been holding.

    Playing USUM lightly (just finished first trial), but running with Sinnoh Pikachu (replaced Quick Attack with Brick Break), Rowlett, Event Rockruff, and a Ghastly.

  • So cool I tagged along to my brothers work to go buy a pack of cards and I got reverse Holo A.Raichu and Buzzwole GX, plus a second Fighting Memory and a New Psychic Memory for Silvally (a card I have yet to get)

  • Govnah

    Hey star :3

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Following on from stars question which follows on from mine, what Pokémon would you use in your team from the Dex you answered to star?

    • Salandit
      Deerling
      Noibat
      Squirtle
      Floette

      Ninetales/Roserade/Dewgong/Dusk Lycanroc/Crobat/Klefki

    • Hmm

      Raichu, Sandslash, Venomoth, Politoed, Arcanine and Honchkrow

  • I feel like Unova could’ve been better if the entralink wasn’t plopped in the middle

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Would’ve been better if it wasn’t designed to be linear asf imo

    • Fedex

      BW2 Unova was awesome.
      Wha a beautiful region that was

      Look I replay Pokémon games a lot but

      This is far too soon :0

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        No I mean I have the game put down, what I mean by AGAIN is that I literally wanna pick up the game and go back to playing it
        I have a dex to complete and a bunch of shiny Ultra Beasts to hunt

    Name five bug legendaries that aren’t Ultra Beasts

    Do you see the issue?

    • Name a Poison Legendary that’s not a UB.

      I see another issue

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Name a Fighting type legendary that isn’t a UB, an alternate form, or some sort of goat thingy

      • Does Poison Arceus count?

        • Meh to a degree other than it there’s 0 (excluding Silvally as it is confirmed Legenday by GF)

    • Monkeyfuzz

      The issue is most of them are Psychic.

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Or dragon
        Or psychic/dragon
        Screaming the necrozma theme

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Dragon kinda makes sense as a legendary type but yeah.

  • EarthenWarrior

    So Star i have semi-bad news I kinda caught all the Blacephalon in Sun…..but i was smart enough to bring a Synchro and they’re both Timid

    I don’t know if i’ll bother looking for Shiny Ultra Beasts, the only one i’d sorta hunt down is Buzzwole and maybe Stakataka

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      *Looks towards you rapidly*
      B L A C E P A H L O N?!

      • EarthenWarrior

        What

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          I need one for my pokedex
          I N E E D T E H S H A N E E C H U R M

          • EarthenWarrior

            well I want a Stakataka….but i also promised star….decisions

            well like all conflicts in life they must be settled with a fight to the death

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I mean I’d literally take it and give it right back

          • EarthenWarrior

            but where’s the profit?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I’d do the same for a mon of your choice? it’s literally just for pokedex completion for the shiny charm

          • How many do you get? When I get there you can have one If there’s 4

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            2, I just need to borrow it

          • Ok it will be a while, but you can borrow it (one’s going to my brother while I get his second Stakataka)

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            hmm

          • Best part of having sibling he gets one and I get the other (He has Celesteelia and Pheromosa because of me)

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            True

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    I wonder if Yammega frequently consumes yams

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Yanmega.

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        It’s a Yam now

  • Name your least favorite Pokémon of your favorite type?

    • EarthenWarrior

      Wormadam Sandy

    • Toxapex from water type

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Grounded.

        • It aggravates me to no end how it has so little counters

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Are you forgettink what Naganadel is?

          • Haven’t fought one yet

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Ahahaha.. let’s just say it makes Toxapex a lot riskier to use

          • EarthenWarrior

            agreed, the only surefire way is a psychic sweeper
            it has a decent chance to tough out a ground attack and play the scalding game

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Mismagius
      I don’t dislike it, it’s just my least favorite

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Magmortar

    • Chaos

      Togedamaru from Steel.

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        So you like Ferrothorn over togedemaru?

        • Hmm suspicious

        • Chaos

          Yep. Ferothorn is probably in my top 5 favourite Steels.

          Plus it’s actually useful as opposed to Steel Pika Clone.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Whoooaaaa we both know Togedemaru isn’t the least useful steel type, he’s used in VGC

            And ferrothorn looks fuckin disgusting

          • Chaos

            I don’t play VGC, but some of those guys can probably make a Sunkern useful…

            Ferrothorn is amazing. Unique typing, great utility, I didn’t like it’s sprite in Gen 5, but since Gen 6 the 3D model has really made it stand out…

          • Fedex

            I agree Ferro is just awesome. The concept and not to mention how viable it is competitively

          • Marty my Togedemaru says otherwise (He was my ace of alola)

    • Dicie

      Shiinotic for Fairy

      • 🙁 my mushroom beauty is despised

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I like it, better than some other Fairies.

          • I like it over quite a few, but for Fairy my least favorite is

            Whimsicott that is by far my least favorite Fairy

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            HOW DO YOU HATE COTTON BABY

          • The fact its just a Spammy Leech Seed, Substitute, prankster

            And the fact some Pokémon could have gotten Fairy that deserved it wanted, over this thing, a cotton plant or if I’m correct a weed…

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            It’s cute

          • Monkeyfuzz
          • Monkeyfuzz

            I love Whimsicott tbh. Aromatisse is my least.

  • Ithsme?

    Haven’t commented yet on how my journey is going, so here’s my update–
    I’m having a blast so far, but that’s because I’m taking it individually rather than an update of SM. Or maybe just because it’s given me a much needed chance to forget about the world for a bit and catch up with an old friend.
    I’ve been rotating 9 pokemon so far, and I’m stuck at Totem Marowak. My team isn’t type balanced, and with rotating I’m underlevelled. But overall, definitely harder than SM. Side note: mantine surf is awesome. Aside from being a cool minigame it makes the game feel more coherent.

    I’m gonna make an in-depth review of the game when I finish, and I definitely see why so many people are unhappy. I understand that it’s a lackluster update over SM, but rather than being dissapointed about what it isn’t, I’d rather enjoy what it is, at least for now.

    • Fedex

      Glad you’re enjoying it!
      Look forward to your review!! :]

      • Ithsme?

        Thanks! I’ve only ever done this once, with Splatoon 2, which I have similar feelings on. In short, a blast but not a huge upgrade.

    • Pretending sun and moon don’t exist is the only way to not feel ripped off lol

      • Unseelie Fairy

        They make me regret purchasing last year lol

        • Game Freak has an amazing business model

          Well for them not for consumers

          They get to release a beta version at full price

          • Fedex

            Sun and moon was a pretty good beta if you ask me (except for post game)

          • Congratulations

            You missed the point

          • Fedex

            No I didn’t.
            I’m just speaking about the games here not the marketing/model.
            I feel SM were better than say DP, RS and XY as first entries of their respective generations.
            I would say only BW comes close.

          • Meh FRLG may not have story, but comes close to it as a game

            Because it’s more straightforward and to the point

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            But there shouldn’t be a beta in the first place. You don’t release a beta game, you release a beta test for free. And when the game is complete you release it
            Lets be honest, we all could have waited another year and Game Freak wouldn’t be up this creek

          • This wouldn’t of even taken a year. It would’ve taken a couple months

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Point still stands though
            Even if it did take a year we all could have waited

          • Fedex

            Yeah true I would prefer if they took their time with new games.
            Even if they are beta I wouldn’t call SM beta as I feel it doesn’t do them justice. They are excellent first attempt games or if you wanna call them beta

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            The biggest issue was that the games were incomplete and to be honest, they had a lot of issues.
            USUM literally feels like the completed games, and it feels like we got sold the same thing twice
            That’s the issue, no matter how good these games wre that point still stands

          • They don’t even feel completed. There is still so many things left unfixed

          • Fedex

            From USUM? Like what out of curiosity?

          • Melemele has an hour shaved off but it STILL is a boring slog and some of the worst experiences I’ve had with the series

            Z moves are unskippable

            Many characters like Wicke and Plumeria still don’t have any arcs

            Still so much dialogue and cutscenes that are unskippable

            Most of the trial captains are still just as undeveloped

            Alolan forms still have terrible encounter rates

            Post game is better but still not nearly as good as Platinum or B2W2

            Just off the top of my head

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            You forgot to mention that they accidentally left out the part where sophocles gets erased from existence

          • Fedex

            For me they’re all pretty minor, like there could have been bigger issues.
            Keep in mind im still not even 5% into the game so I cant say much more

          • Fedex

            That I agree with :]
            I hope they pace up with gen switch and not repeat these mistakes.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Agreed

      • Ithsme?

        I’m not really gonna dive into this just yet. Don’t get me wrong, there’s plenty to be said, but I don’t wanna downtalk what I’m still enjoying.

        To each their own, but tha’s not entirely true. I’m enjoying the games just as I enjoyed SM, even though they didn’t meet fans’ hopes.

        Also, don’t act as if you’ve been ripped off. The game leaked days before release, you had plenty of time of choose for yourself not to buy the games.

        • Uhhh what?

          I didn’t look at story leaks because I expected changes.

          There is hardly anything significant until the end of Ula Ula

        • Fedex

          Well put dude. I’m gonna play it enjoy it and then come to my conclusion 👍

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      I adore these games tbh
      Even if the practice is *insert swear word here*

      • Ithsme?

        My thoughts exactly.
        Fun games when taken individually, but it’s an outdated anti-consumer business practice. I enjoy what they are, but I hope GF takes note of the backlash.

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Agreed!

  • EarthenWarrior

    So i need final decisions for my moon

    Snowshrew baby at level 5 with Metal Claw as a egg move as my starter
    Rockruff with Suckerpunch and Steadfast
    Regular Grubbin
    and i gotta wait until i get Stuffull and Sandygast
    and i still got one slot open
    which is looking very bleak

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Alolan Muk

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I’d day send the Sandshrew over as an egg just so it doesn’t get overlevelled tbh

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Btw it learns Metal Claw Lv 14 so it’s a pointless egg move.

      • EarthenWarrior

        but i want it nooooooooow

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I can give you an egg of it in a Heavy Ball with SlushRush, Icicle Crash, Icicle Spear, Curse and Night Slash if you want.

          • EarthenWarrior

            too much, i don’t want too many powerful moves, Metal Claw is fine enough for me

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Teach over them early and get them back later.

          • Soggy Auggy

            I’ll take you up on that… but it’s like midnight in Germany so let’s try to trade tomorrow 😊 I’ll import my bank

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    Serperior scolipede and Azumarill dropped to UU

    OH
    SWEET
    MOTHER
    OF GOD

    • Fedex

      Serp did??????? Noo wayy!

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        I don’t think it’s going to stay there considering it got Defog
        But Azumarill…. Y I K E S

        • Fedex

          Serp is hella scary
          Azumarill is too

    • EarthenWarrior

      Well goodbye everyone it was a horror meeting you
      *Runs outside and waits to be hit by a bus*

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    I would 100% buy a third release of SuMo if it cannonically confirmed sophocles is dead

    • Chaos

      And Lillie actually gets caught in the beginning cutscene so we don’t have to listen to her yapping all game…

      • Lillie is like the only great character in the game what are you on about

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Gladion?
          Hau?
          Guzma? (USUM version)

        • Chaos

          Hau
          Gladion
          Kukui
          Nanu
          Guzma

          Lillies gets really annoying really fast…maybe if she didn’t keep cropping up everywhere she’d be alright…

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I agree with all these characters
            USUM Guzma is GREAT

          • Chaos

            He sure is.

            I don’t know why but I dislike Characters who keep interrupting my play through with meaningless dialogue. Not saying Lillie is a bad character but at least make her do something instead of whining.

            That was partly my hope for a completely different personality for Lillie in USUM, but alas it wasn’t to be…

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I like Lillie more in USUM simply because she actually goes somewhere at the end of the game
            In SuMo though?
            Y E E SH

          • Excuse me? She actually has an arc

            She’s the only character to go from a passive character to an active character in basically the entire series and that change is seeable through her actions.

            She’s the one that goes after Lusamine. You’re just there because she’s not a trainer

          • Chaos

            That’s my point, the whole game she isn’t able to actually do anything except rely on other people. I wanted a different character arc for Lillie in USUM with I didn’t get…

            And don’t get me started on that ‘this is my z-form’ dialogue…

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Okayokayokay
            I can say this
            She actually acknowledges this idea in USUM
            Like she kinda notices she isn’t exactly helpful and in the post game she attempts to change
            That honestly makes her more bearable in my eyes

          • ?? But the one she has is fine?

          • Plus she isn’t even in the game that much for the first half

    • Monkeyfuzz
    • Dicie

      I think there’s a lot that needs to be cleared up, especially in terms of who the mastermind of the Ultra Recon Squad is, who Mohn really is, who the Masked Royal is (I’m deadass), and just other small lore things that would make a world of difference.

        I think the Masked Royal might be either Lillie or Youngster Joey.

        • Dicie

          I think you’re onto a solid theory there 😉

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            So my theory about him being Gladion’s mega evolution was wrong

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        I’m pretty sure that the mastermind of Ultra Recon is Phyco, he outright calls Soleria his subordinate at a point

        And isn’t it obvious? Mohn is a fat dude who likes beans

        • Dicie

          In one of the first scenes with Phyco and Soliera (Ultra Moon), they talk about asking the “boss” something, so I don’t think it could be Phyco. This makes me wonder if it’s one of those puppet master leaders like Giovanni and his grunts.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Hmmm
            I don’t actually remember that statement
            I’m pretty sure they aren’t even a team and are more like a research team

          • Dicie

            It’s right before Ilima’s trial, and you could be right. They are a “recon squad” instead of a team after all.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Yeah
            It’s mainly because, if you don’t mind spoilers
            they kinda establish the fact that they’re from a group of people living in Megaopolis and their entire goal is to find someone strong enough to fight Necrozma. If you listen to their dialogue, they seriously resemble a team of researchers

  • Fedex

    So with all the unhappiness with GF’s model over here,Amazon and pretty much everywhere.
    Surely GF will never repeat this again with all this feedback right?

    • They better not. They need to stop doing more than one version all together

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        To be fair it’s never going to stop
        Let’s just hope the third version is a sequel next time

        • Unseelie Fairy

          They just got major flak for it and switch games are more expensive

          If they’re smart, they’ll stop

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            These are the same people that designed Sophocles

          • Fedex

            hahaha lmao

          • Unseelie Fairy

            They’re the same people who designed Decidueye so by that logic Deci is bad

            Well it is already bad but that just confirms it

          • Fedex

            100% agreed 👍

          • Ithsme?

            I’m confused on this, why are people already complaining abou the fact that the Switch game will cost more? If the games are fantasic, then there’s no problem. The main issue with that is if they try to pull another double version. We all know it’s been pointless for years.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I’m not comparing the switch games are more expensive? I’m complaining that them being more expensive means less people will buy both versions whereas more people will buy a single, better game

          • Because Pokémon games in its current state are not worth 60$ especially if there are two versions. That goes from 80$ to 120$ for both

            If they actually make it good then it’s fine

      • Fedex

        Yup surely they’ll see sense now with all this backlash

    • Chaos

      The questions is, did it make them money? If yes, you can expect it to happen again…

      • Fedex

        Not sure with all the negative feedback will sales be effected?Even if not it should push them to make sequels as opposed to 3rd version hopefully

        • It will be.

          3rd versions already don’t sell as well

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    What depresses me is that Pokemon will never again reach the level as hype for me that this gen did
    Simply because my ideal Pokemon have been made already
    Outside of a ghostbug of course

    • Ithsme?

      Which is that again? I’m blanking.

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Marshadow
        Araquanid
        Decidueye

        • Ithsme?

          Pretty good gen then, huh?

          My favorite have to be Decidueye, Komala, and I haven’t used on yet but I really like the way Naganadel looks.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I love it allll dude

    • Chaos

      I dont think I have any favourites this Gen. I liked Rockruff, but I seriously wanted it to be a 3-stage evolution line as none of its evolutions do It for me. I also liked Salandit, but not not much a fan of Salazzle.

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Imo you’re crazy

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Or he just has different opinions 😉

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            But not liking having a single favorite mon of gen 7?

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Can’t blame him, nothing this Gen was like super fave for me besides Inci and the Poison types.

          • I feel like gen 7 is either amazing or trash for people

            For me half of it is amazing and half of it is trash

            Cuz I got Tsareena Primarina Salazzle Mimikyu Alolan Raichu Alolan Ninetails and Ribombee but then ya got Toucannon and Incineroar

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Incineroar is clearly the best because it got the most tutor moves and so far the most attention in the anime 👀 👀

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I didn’t know Incineroar was a four legged dog
            Afterall
            Look how many move tutor moves that got

          • Unseelie Fairy

            How many of those will it use tho? Even in game some of those tutors are just outshined by other moves

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            The anime doesn’t always make the right things popular

          • Unseelie Fairy

            One example of one thing wrong it made popular

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I just gave Lycanroc as an example
            Additionally we can’t pretend sceptile was ever a mon that stood out

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Lycanroc was popular before the anime made it popular so they capitalised on it and made a new form to push it.

            I don’t know where you’ve been but Sceptile is popular fam

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I know it is but I mean ingame there’s nothing that makes it stand out

          • It’s because it appeals to little boys and furries

            Of course it’s goona be popular

          • Unseelie Fairy

            ‘Primarina appeals to little girls and is waifu bait’

            ‘Decidueye appeals to edge lords who love anything with ghost slapped onto it’

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            And the box appeals to a fair amount of people too

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I like Decidueye because it is an Archer and Owl.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Fam it’s a hyperbolic

          • Eh
            Fair enough

          • Fedex

            Incineroar is probably my fav final stage starter of all time. Says a lot :]

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I’m scared to know what other starters you like…

          • Chaos

            That would be Blaziken for me.

          • Chaos

            I said I don’t have any favourites, in that none would break into my top 10.

            I still like some of them…

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            gasfdsaredafdsfsa

        • Well he doesn’t like Lillie so

          Make of that what you will 👀

          • Chaos

            Didn’t say I don’t like Lillie, I said she’s not a bad character but I expected more from her…there’s others I like better.

        • Chaos

          Nah, this Gen was seriously poor in Pokemon designs.
          Pallosand and the Jangmo-o line stand out to an extent.

          The starters were all really bad. Basic bird and rodent were terrible compared to Gen 6.

          Even the legendaries were substandard, guess I could make a case for Bulu being awesome

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            ARaquanid

          • Chaos

            Araquanid is alright I guess. Decent design, but overhyped in competitive…

            Never really saw the appeal of it.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I’ll admit it’s overhyped but it’s still good
            Plus it’s design is great

  • EarthenWarrior

    so….
    Snowslash
    Lycanroc Midnight
    Vikavolt
    A. Muk
    Bewear
    Pallossand

  • Dicie

    So while normal Pokemon shiny rates in Ultra Space are greatly increased, I’m guessing Ultra Beast shiny rates remain around the 1/4000 range?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Yes, UBs and Legends remain the normal rates.

      • Dicie

        Thought so. Thanks 🙂

  • Fedex

    Incini gets hate like so much but you know what..
    I love it! Like its probably my fav final stage no joke. And I’m an avid fan of all 3 Kanto, Johto, Sinnoh, Kalos and Hoenn starters. Even Serp.
    I just love its design and the complexity behind its personality adds to its appeal!

    • Dicie

      I think Alola is the only region where I genuinely like all three final stage evolutions.

      • Fedex

        I personally feel that since gen 6 GF have been doing well with starters.
        What do you think of the Kalos set??

        • Dicie

          I’d love to lie to you and say that they’re all great, but I’m not particularly fond of any. That might be because of all the amazing fanart that circled the web from January to October.

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Kalos contains some of the worst, have you seen Delphox?

          • Dicie

            I didn’t wanna put it that way but my thoughts exactly 😡

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            :3

          • Fedex

            What about Greninja? Chesnaught is pretty cool too imo
            They could have done Delph better but I still like. Looks good enough for me and I loke the concept how it links to France!

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Chesnaught looks cool
            And a tongue scarf has so many practical issues it’s a miracle this thing is still alive as a species

          • Fedex

            Haha nah fam I like gren especially from a competitive stand point :]

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Outside of a competitive standpoint what is there to like

          • Fedex

            It’s design. The slick, stealthy and warrior like look it imposes.
            Opinions friend :]

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            It’s a frog with a tongue that flops around as it runs

          • I think it’s cool

          • Fedex

            That’s what frogs are supposed to do buddy :]
            You’re missing the stealth ninja like features imo are a perfect match!

        • The worst trio ever

          I don’t like any of them after their first and second forms

          I say first and second because Chespin is ruined the moment it evolves

          • Fedex

            Wow I thought they were well received esp gren?
            What do you think of the unova trio?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Triooooooooooooom

          • Greninja is the least worst one purely based on competitive value. Design is still awful.

            Unova is meh. It at least has Serperior who is incredible and the other two are cute in their first stages

          • Fedex

            Unova was a real let down for me except Serperior.
            I disagree with Greninja love its design. Competitively it’s ridiculously strong :]

      • That’s Sinnoh for me

        • Dicie

          Those are cool though Sinnoh tops my least favorite regions list 🙂
          dont hurt me pls

          • I mean I can understand it in DP but in Platinum?
            Nananananananaaaaa

            … batman

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I have ideas how it could be better but I still like it.

      • Fedex

        Oh yeah like on all fours would have been nice too!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Or even just hunched over and more feral. Get rid of the grey chest shirt thingy. Make the arm, tail and leg stripes jagged like a real tiger. Make the hands more paw like, like larger versions of Lucarios. Make the red a more burnt Orange like a slightly darker Torracat. Make it look more like it has furr, like the tufts on the shoulders and the tail.

        • “I choose you” actually confirmed Incineroar runs on all fours rather than on two legs like a person

          • Fedex

            Oh yeah it does! I like Inci on all fours or not. I think its awesome :]

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      But like what other starters do you like?

      • Fedex

        My all time favourites would be Feraligatr, Ape, original 3, Sceptile and now Incineroar.
        I do like the rest though like Blaziken, Torterra alot too.
        The only ones that bother me a little were the Unova set. Typing coulda been betta

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Incineroar is so bad imo

          • Fedex

            Thats the thing with starters what one person likes greatly another dislikes and vice versa.
            I wonder what gen switch has in store!

    • EarthenWarrior

      You kidding i love Incineroar
      That rowdy disposition, that complete disregard towards others safety and that flame belt

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          It looks more like an “I wanna kill myself” stare to me

  • Fedex

    Speaking of starters what do you realistically predict or expect GF to design the switch starters after?
    Like what design concepts are begging to be used 8 generations in? I guess you can also add what would you like to see?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Water probably won’t be a Mammal again. Fire if we follow the Zodiac could be Rabbit, Bull, Snake or perhaps Ram. Grass I hope for another Mammal.

      • Yeah like the only non-Repilian or Amphibious Grass starters are Chespin (based on a nut) and Rowlet an avian

        Can we get a Mammal for gosh sakes

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    Rotom gave me a comment about telling physical from special attackers and mentioned looking at their movesets to figure it out….

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Probably just happens when Exeggutor turns around to see what is slapping it and Makuhita gets caught by the tail, then Exeggutor sees nothing there and is confused as Makuhita blasts off again.

      • Fedex

        Haha yeah they are quite clueless. Still quite a comedic scene nonetheless:]

  • Fedex
    • Monkeyfuzz

      Sophocles is a hideous mutation of a Makuhita.

      • EarthenWarrior

        thought that was Tabitha

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Tabitha is a less hideous mutation of Makuhita.

    • I still now wish Drasweet was the real Bounsweet evolution

      I mean instead of making a prissy princess, instead make it a cute Dragon fruit that could have had a lot of potential

      • Monkeyfuzz

        They can do that with another ‘mon in future though.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So I’ve got my team fully assembled I guess. I’ve got a lot of grinding to do to get the lower 4 up to snuff, but in the end I think this team will be great. 3 of them have egg moves and all except Dartrix and Dewpider are eggs traded over. Should be a really cool team after they’re all fully evolved. Still bummed I won’t be using a totem sized Araquanid due to it not being able to go in bank and ultimately transfer up to later gens but I guess I’ll live with this. Either way I’m happy.

    Dartrix lvl 25 male
    Midnight Lycanroc lvl 25 female
    Dewpider lvl 17
    Stufful lvl 13 male
    Sandile lvl 15 male
    Alolan Sandshrew lvl 13 female

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    whelp I’m an idiot. What am I doing complaining about not getting the lucky egg before post game when I have a perfectly good lucky egg in my Sun sitting being unused? For the record I just want to use the Lucky egg to get my lower mons up to the same level as my Dartrix and Lycanroc. Once that happens I’ll put it away until after I beat the game. I don’t want to make things too easy for myself after all. Just don’t feel like grinding for the sake of grinding…….

      Naga’s entire Sctick is getting a nasty plot up which it needs

      Stak runs lonely with 14 def iv

      • EarthenWarrior

        why lonely? wouldn’t minus speed be better for it? or anything that lowers spatk?

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          No because if you don’t go lonely it doesn’t get Attack boosts

          • EarthenWarrior

            i cannot grasp this… then why not just go Adamant? or Impish

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Because it doesn’t get Attack boosts. The things defense is so high that even if you go adamant with 252 Evs and 0 def, it still gets beast boost on its defense

          • EarthenWarrior

            OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
            Ok now i get it, i am a’stupid

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            It’s fine no worries
            The mon itself is honestly designed in an extremely idiotic manner and whoever designed it should be removed from statmaking

          • EarthenWarrior

            …..i like how it looks
            and its stats aren’t…..too bad……that trick room thing surprised me………

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            But it’s stats are so baaaad
            Like I’m sorry it’s dumb to need to run Lonely to make use of it

          • Fedex

            Stats are fine. Its main issue is typing. Something like steel ghost would have been better but stats are great. Perfect.

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Also for Blacephalon I reccomend Mind Blown, Shadow Ball, psychic/psyshock, and pain split

  • Well as we were talking of Starters I want to share my thoughts of all starters

    Kanto- I love the three of them, but I have to admit Charizard pulls through only because when I was little Charmander was my favorite Pokémon of all time.

    Johto- I also like, but on a lesser scale as Meganium could be better. And my favorite is Feraligatr as I loved Totodile for so long

    Hoenn- The first region I have a less positive view on. Sceptile definetly is great, but not a fan of Treeko or Grovyle. Torchic is fine, but I dislike the Chicken wing Combusken and mostly for how its so over rated Blaziken I have low likng for. Mudkip line I like all around, but I believe Swampert could be a bit better (It’s hands look weird)

    Sinnoh- This region gets a Blue ribbon for some great starters, not one single problem with any of them

    Unova- What a wasted opportunity Serperior was, could’ve made a Grass/Poison snake or Grass/Dragon maybe, but no we got a pure grass type with a blander level up move set then meganium, I like Servine and S nivy though based on looks. Tepig is cute and holds high favor for me. Do you have to ask, Oshawott is my favorite starter line ever I have 0 complaints about it at all.

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Oshawott is not water fighting

    • Ultron

      Serperior isn’t wasted at all. Maybe type wise it could’ve been more interesting, but it’s the best out of the starters stat and battle wise.

      • It got speedy (a typical snake trait) and contrary saves its competitively

        But to me it’s bland to use and much less interesting than using Oshawott

        • Ultron

          Oshawott and Dewott are good, yes. That’s about it for that line :3

          • I like it’s variety gets Bug moves and Fighting moves which gives it more variety in game than the others

          • Ultron

            Yeah its movepool ain’t bad

          • The fact it gets Megahorn via level up makes me so happy

    • Part 2

      Kalos- Chespin is my favorite Grass starter, despite the hate that it turns into a fat lard according to some people, but it’s nice to see a Grass starter that actually can was meant for defensive power that can actually defend. Froakie and Frogadier could have looked less ugly, but Greninja’s pretty cool so no biggie. Fennekin… is just bland to me, Braixen I like for its design, but no Delphox, it looks pretty weird (It’s face doesn’t match its body) could have had hat like fur to look more like mage/witch/wizard, but all in all. Not my favorite

      Alola- finishing strong on this, I have no complaints with the final stages, sadly for the first time I don’t like two of the mid stages, Dartrix and Brionne. Dartrix just looks like a pompous pr*ck and I don’t like that fact that it acts so prim with its stupid emo hair. Brionne I think points way to far towards being completely female, at least in some ways Primarina can be saved, but Brionne is has a dress (which most men don’t wear) and its called a Pop star Pokémon (Pop star 90% of the time means female) so yeah, but Torracat is great

      Well this is my opinion on starters

      • Kanto-Starters are basic, but this is Gen 1 we’re talking about.Overall, I like them. My favorite is Charmander

        Johto-As much as I dislike Gen 2, it had pretty good starters. My favorite is either Totodile or Cyndaquil

        Hoenn-To risk sounding like a broken record, I like all of them except for maybe Torchic, but it’s evos more than make up for it. My favorite is Treecko

        Sinnoh-Where I started, so nostalgia warning or something. I love all of them, they all look great in my eyes. This is the one Gen where I’m stuck between all of them as my favorite

        Unova-Snivy line is fine, I just feel there’s improvement needed. Same with all of them, actually. I don’t really what I’d fix for Samurott, but I feel Emboar needs a redesign as much as I like it. My favorite is Oshawot.

        Kalos-I love this region, it’s really cool. Same for the starters, all the final evos are really good (except for Delpox), with Greninja being my fave. I was actually gonna pick Chespin first before I saw Froakie’s evos. As I stated before, my fave is Froakie.

        Alola-I love this region too. I like the starters, some more than others, but Rowlet I just don’t really like until Deciueye. I really like the Litten line, but yeah, Incineroar could’ve been better. I’ve started to warm up to Brionne, so I actually like it now. My favorite is Litten

    “Hey, Gamefreak, can you make more hairstyles for males in USUM? 6 Really isn’t enough for people to accurately portray themselves.”

    “Sure! We can do that!”

    >>>>Adds 1 single male hairstyle.

    • It’s at least a good one

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You wanted the Kim Jong Un didn’t you?

    • Females still don’t have enough cool short hairstyles

      • Ultron

        They still have almost 4 times the options though :I

        • Daedardus

          A fringe isn’t really a lot more options though.

        • And non of them look like my hair style >:(

          • Daedardus

            Grow your hair fam 😉

          • No I’m cute >~<

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Hah you admitted it ;3

          • Fam I’ve accepted it by now

            I’m just waiting on you

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Well I know you’re cute af already

          • Nah I’m waiting for you I know that you’re cute too

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            ghjyhkgng

    • Luigi301

      as much as i really could not care less for customization, I dont understand why they cant just make the same options for both genders. I mean for Miis you can do ANYTHING then choose the sex at the end. I dont see why they couldnt just have a set of options for anyone to choose.

      • Daedardus

        Add crossdressing too, please.

        • Luigi301

          I mean, i implied this as well. but actually now that i think about it in Mii creation the sex also changes the shirt to a dress. so yeah i meant crossdressing too. Its freakin customization, let people do what they want. Imo it would look much better for them

      • Ultron

        It’s frustrating. I will definitely be talking about this in my review. It’s one thing to make the mistake once, but this is the third (?) time they’ve done this.

        • Luigi301

          I didnt know you review?

          • Ultron

            I don’t, but I have a lot to say about USUM. I have always wanted to start reviewing things on a blog or something.

          • Luigi301

            as have I tbh.

          • Ultron

            Let’s both review it :O

          • Daedardus

            Dae’s review: “Good but not worth it.”

          • Luigi301

            cant review what you havent played. well USUM is an exception i guess since they are just sun and moon +

  • Dicie

    The Masked Royal has to be Kukui… right? Right?

    • EarthenWarrior

      Don’t be stupid

    • Monkeyfuzz

      They are nothing alike.

    • I always thought it was Hau from the future come back to beat us down in our prime… XD

    • No way, they are two completely different people. Idk how you came up with that, but it’s wrong. The real question is:Will we ever find out who the Masked Royal is?

    • You never see them in the same room together

      I’ve been saying this for a year but you fuckers still want to deny it

    • Luigi301

      weird. i think your kanto and johto are the exact same for me. But im deciding between wartortle and squirtle. I just love the first stages for kanto

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I love Wartortles tail and ears and the blues used for it against the shell colours.

        • Luigi301

          yeah the ears are awesome

      • Ultron

        Wartortle is awesome!

  • ShinyXatu

    I just got a King’s Rock from one of the bubbling spots…and then immediately ran into a Poliwhirl. I think this is a sign. Anyone want to help me get a Politoed for my team?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I can FC: 0748 – 2744 – 4660 IGN: James

      • ShinyXatu

        Okay cool! I might already have you, but I’ll check after I finish up in Malie Garden.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          OK, I probably need your FC though.

          • ShinyXatu

            Mine is 2191-7648-0558, name is Kevin.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, I’ll get online now.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I don’t think you have me added as it’s not coming up.

          • ShinyXatu

            Now you’re added!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, I’ll be in plaza, request when ready.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            You want it to learn swagger?

          • ShinyXatu

            Works for me! Replace what you think is best 😛

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Removed Double Slap as I think it has least merit.

          • ShinyXatu

            I would’ve done the same, good choice. I might be adding Magmortar later down the line, so maybe I’ll let you know. Thanks a lot!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, glad to be of help 🙂

    • EarthenWarrior

      It is a sign!

    Do QR mons spawn with random natures or are they fixed??

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You mean island scan? Random.

      • Fedex

        I found a hardy Squirtle.
        Should I try resetting for something better?? I think I may just do thanks!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Yeah, might need to scan in again depending when you saved.

          • Fedex

            Got a modest squirtle on my next try!

    • Ultron

      Sheen…this is the seventh week in a row that you’ve shown ultra sun in class..

      • EarthenWarrior

        But this one is different, this remake has powerful move tutors and nuclear features, with rare never seen ultra beasts making it highly collectible

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Never been seen huh? Well then how do you know it’s even in there?

          • EarthenWarrior

            *Pulls it out* Neh Neh
            *Realizes the game is shite*
            NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            *makes snarky look with an attitude*

  • EarthenWarrior

    well the mighty Earthen has grown bored…..
    Do i really want to send over all my Nature Dittos and my teambuilding pokemon or make all new ones
    All i really have is my Shiny 6IV Ditto named Max, but i’ll need at least 9 Everstones

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I just spent the last half hour moving my living dex in and out of my Ultra Moon in order to get my Pokedex as close to completion as I can before beating the game. My two regrets are I prolly should have been training my lower level mons and that I wish I could get the shiny charm before beating the game……oh well at least now all I need are the new UBs and a couple others that I had evolved in Sun. Some being Type Null which I evolved into Silvally so I don’t have one for my living dex yet and Cosmog which I evolved into Cosmoem. Both of which I’ll be able to get in these games easily.

  • Daedardus

    How would you rate USUM out of 10?

    • Fedex

      Still got a long way to go Dae im still on melemele :] but I will post my review/opinions once I’m done!

    • ShinyXatu

      8.5/10. Very solid games indeed.

    • 3/5
      6.5/10

      It’s fine.

      • 3 being a good/average game that’s worth playing

        Though that’s only if you haven’t played Sun and Moon

    • 7.5-8.5/10

    • Ultron

      Am I ranking it as its own game or as a remake of SM?

    • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

      10/10 as their own games 6/10 as remakes of SuMo

    • A solid 9/10 only due to only having like 3 or 4 hours logged so far

    • Dicie

      As a standalone game, 9.5/10
      As a follow-up to Sun and Moon? 7/10

    • Butter Geek

      9/10 as standalone
      8.25/10 as a follow up

  • ShinyXatu

    I’m having trouble choosing between all of the Fossil Pokemon for my team because I love all of them. I guess I’m tied between Kabutops, Archeops and Bastiodon. What should I do?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Archeops if you can cope with Defeatist, otherwise Kabutops.

      • ShinyXatu

        As you know, I already have a Water type on my team so I’ll go with Archeops.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I didn’t know if you minded that, maybe give it leftovers.

  • Luigi301

    the coins in odyssey are the most tedious part of the game tbh

    • I usually find them on the way looking for moons

      • Luigi301

        but i found all the moons i can find in seaside, i need 3 coins

    • EarthenWarrior

      Get the bowser amiibo
      I did and it helps out so much

  • MK126

    I just wanna take time to thank the holy arceus with finding this bad boy on my first try https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/826b04befb021d4144e9614ddbade4808ec351c3fc955fd3513e01419bd2e747.jpg

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Nice, was it SOS?

      • MK126

        Nope. Ran into the grass and saw an eevee that i killed so i kept looking for another eevee and found a yungoos and then this! I only had 2 great balls and a heal ball. First great ball without damage didnt work so i used my Torracats ember and it got burnt! I was like praise the lord!!

      • MK126

        Sadly its just gonna sit in my box but atleast i can say i finally caught a shiny

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Why’s that?

          • MK126

            Cause ive already used a Mudsdale in my Sun playthrough. My US playthrough will be pokemon i havent used before

    • EarthenWarrior

    • Get yourself some leech seed my dude
      It’s so easy with leech seed

      • ShinyXatu

        I already won, but I still wanted to get that out of my system because it was INSANE.

    • DucoLamia

      The same thing with me

  • ShinyXatu

    I think I have my final team planned out, I’m pretty happy with it to be honest! It sort of evolved over time, just the way I like it.

    Decidueye
    Malamar
    Florges
    Magmortar
    Politoed
    Archeops

    I may switch Florges out for Metagross or something like that, but the chances are slim because I want a Fairy type on my team.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Pretty snazzy team.

      • ShinyXatu

        Thanks, I was a big fan of the Gen 6 Pokémon that are newly featured in USUM so I wanted to take advantage of that. And Politoed just hopped out of nowhere (no pun intended).

    • Ultron

      Solid. I say keep Florges though

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Have fun getting a Politoed

      • ShinyXatu

        I already got a Politoed today! I got SUPER lucky and found a King’s Rock in Malie Garden, and then immediately found a Poliwhirl. It was like magic.

    • Dicie

      Very nice 🙂
      I’m the type who likes to build a team around that generation’s Pokemon specifically, so I’ve planned Incineroar, Lycanroc, Araquanid, Lurantis, Bewear, and Mimikyu for my Ultra Moon run.

      • ShinyXatu

        When I played Sun I also used exclusively Alolan Pokémon, but now I felt like changing it up a little. Decidueye is still a significant choice though because of its Grass/Ghost typing (and it’s a starter I’ve never used!)

  • Butter Geek
  • Soggy Auggy

    So… everyone is posting their teams. What do you guys think of mine?

    Decidueye
    A. Marowak
    Toxapex
    A. Ninetales
    Araquanid
    Minior

    (Yes I’m basic)

    • Butter Geek

      Cool, tho the double/Triple type repeating seems weird.

I have enjoyed this game so much that I am kind of upset that I am so close to the end. On the bright side there are some quests I can still do and I plan 100 percent to get the dlc later so that should be fun. I think I will start ultra sun after I finish this. Or maybe even Mario Odyssey. We shall see.

        I’M EXPERIMENTING UU IS REALLY STRESSING ME OUT
        EVERY TIME I TRY TO ADJUST I JUST KEEP LOSING

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Wanna battle? I’m making a team too

          • EarthenWarrior

            no…….i want to use some new builds but i keep losing to all my usual threats

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I honestly don’t know what I’m doin either

          • EarthenWarrior

            I want to try the Bulk Bewear out but so far its been crap

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            I have a few mons I’d love to try out

          • EarthenWarrior

            Honestly i’m just gonna focus on USUM…..
            Get to the battle tree
            unlock IV checker
            get all 100 TMs
            move my team builders from Sun (i want to teach my A. Exeggutor Skill Swap)
            start hunting down Everstones
            And maybe start working towards whatever i need to do for the oval and shiny charms….

            otherwise breed my stuff for moon yadda yadda yadda…and after all that i might make a new file on Breath of the Wild but my competitive pokemon vitality is fleeting

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Same tbh

          • EarthenWarrior

            in other news, my Kommo-o is seriously climbing the levels, would you believe he’s already level 73

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Holy crap

          • EarthenWarrior

            And with Kommolium Z at his beck and call
            But i have to say…I loved every moment raising the little prince…

            In my weaker moments…after i finished my Dragon Trial…i wanted to write that i released him

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Tbh I’m mixed on the mon

  • EarthenWarrior

    OK WHAT THE HELL PRANKSTER DEFOG WONT WORK IF A DARK TYPE IS UP

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      >;3

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Honchkrow really is the best flying type

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    I wish Kommo-o was better

    • EarthenWarrior

      dude it gotr Close Combat, a Z-Move, AND DRAIN PUNCH

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        I know but like it’s so weird when you run its z move because you need to run mix

        • EarthenWarrior

          Isn’t that good though
          a mix of both

          Clanging Scales to get the boost
          then recovery with Drain Punch
          and you get either Iron Head/Poison Jab/Elemental Punches for coverage

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Here’s the thing
            It forces it to run a defense lowering nature
            And once you use it Clanging is kinda like an empty slot

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well nothing is perfect,
            and speaking of the scale clad warrior

            He’s tearing Red a new one as we speak

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Hmm

          • EarthenWarrior

            Clangorous Soulblaze is the win button

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Not in comp

          • EarthenWarrior

            i mean….to a lesser extent but it could potentially be a win button

          • Chaos

            Drain Punch is incredibly weak coming from Kommo-o even at +1. Same with Iron Head and Poison Jab. Realistically it needs +2 To even have a chance of sweeping. And that means getting off a DD as well as your z-move.

    • Chaos

      The main issue with its Z-move is that’s it relegated to being a setup move to allow Kommo-o to do more damage as opposed to being a one time nuke when you actually need it…

      Clanging Scales being Physical would have made a world of difference…

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        ^^
        Exactly

    • Butter Geek

      I wish Jangmo-o was avaible at level 25

    • Daedardus

      Worst pseudo-legend? Worst pseudo-legend.

      • Chaos

        Well Goodra gives it a run for it’s money

        • Daedardus

          At least Goodra isn’t butt-ugly.

        • Goodra is adorable

      • Butter Geek

        Nah it’s Ok, the worst are Heidreigon and Tyranitar

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Are you on drugs? I think you are

          • Butter Geek

            Heidreigon is ugly, weird and annoying in battle. Tytanitar has a weird typing, weird mega and is overrated

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Yep you’re on drugs

          • You have to be insane

          • Hydrogen I can get the ugly part (I personally think it’s cool), but Tyranitar has a weird type? I think if you want overrated your meaning Salamence

            Seriously its a x4 weak to ice, typical Dragon/Flying type (My least favorite Dragon and is in my Top 10 least favorite Pokémon)

        • Chaos

          Except Tyranitar got even better with USUM release…

          • Monkeyfuzz

            How so?

          • Chaos

            It didn’t gain anything directly. But it is an excellent stop to two strong new additions in Naganadel and Blacephalon.

        • ..
          Are you high?

        • That’s a weird way to say Salamence?

          • Butter Geek

            I mean, Salamance Looks pretty cool and the backstory is kinda neat

        Oh I know
        I used one nonstop in comp
        But now? It’s SOOOO far beyond

        The annoying thing is rebreeding… I have a shiny one already

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    I wanna battle you Earthen-kun

  • Fedex

    Ok so almost at the end of melemele.
    IMO there are enough changes to keep me happy.
    The opening is less tedious, there’s more plot with URS who I love,they’re so mysterious and unorthodox.
    Level curves are better. Mantine surfing or the big wave beach/cave expands on SM melemele. I like the overworld mons and ability to interact with them! The Alola photo club feature might be my fav as the game progresses.
    In a nut shell yes they’re very similiar but there are enough changes for me and I appreciate the less stalling at the beginning.
    The game feels very polished too.

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Melemele is an abomination still, it gets a lot better though

      • Fedex

        Way better than SM for me :]

    • 5 hours in melemele

      I almost returned the game I was so bored

      Also why are people saying the ultra recon squad is cool? They suck.

      • Fedex

        I think it’s just personal preferences. I can see people liking them easily and others hating them. I just like how unorthodox and alien like they are. They’re clueless and very wierd. That’s what I like.
        I only played SM once which may be helping me in USUM but its good for me so far :]

        • So did I. I only played them once.

          I honestly can’t believe that they made getting a starter faster and nothing else. It’s dreadful and I never want to play gen 7 again purely because of melemele being so damn boring

          • Fedex

            I mean its a major improvement over SM soo less clutter with Kukui etc and getting your starter.
            Although it maybe not be much I do feel that you are more in the main game with URS appearance and features like APC/Mantine surf makes melemele feel more active/interesting/diverse then SM melemele which was more of a slow introducing process to Alolan life.
            If you’ve only played SM once I’m surprised it bored you so much fam

          • Do they? The URS is just shoved in randomly and Mantine surf isn’t even a thing until you leave the island. What about it makes the island feel more active?

            You know what would’ve been better? If Mele Mele was actually totally overhauled.

          • Chaos

            Or even better, we don’t set foot on Mele Mele until about half way through the game. Seriously man we should have started on one of the other islands…

          • Akala would be so much better.

            It’s the best paced island in the story anyways

          • Chaos

            Well it certainly has plenty to do. Poni island was my least favourite in the original. Mele Mele i forgave as a sort of tutorial island, but Poni was rubbish…

          • Fedex

            By active I mean there’s more life/more things to do not necessarily related to plot.
            Firstly we have Alolan photo club which maybe a small feature but its still something extra to do.
            Mantine surf maybe at the end but its still part of the experience,part of melemele
            I like the side quests such as the one in Haouli Hall.
            As for URS I am one of the people who enjoy them you seem to be the opposite
            Ok so I’ve not listed anything revolutionary but we have to remember that we’re talking about the beggining part of the game, surely we can’t be expecting BF.
            And yeah an overhaull woulda been better but im ok with how it is I feel its good enough, could have been worse:]

          • Yeah we could’ve had what XY did, a 1st route that has 0 Pokémon on it

          • Fedex

            Yeah exactly as the games are not sequels we can’t really be expecting BW2 level of changes. However there have still been a good amount of changes on melemele. Honestly so far well done GF but I want you guys to go all out on Switch!!

          • Your expectations have to be so low I swear

          • Fedex

            No my expectations were higher I expected more change, just it’s harder to disappoint me and easier for me to express appreciation.
            Keep in mind I have yet to complete the game to form my final opinion but as it stands I’m happy.
            And if I don’t see major changes on the switch then you’ll see my fury at GF like you’ve never seen before 💪

          • Yeah I admit, just giving me a Pokémon game is enough

            When I play a new Pokémon game for the first time I always love it (including 3rd versions and remakes)

          • Fedex

            People would be better off if they thought like you and maybe me. Like just focusing on positives rather than complaining about every minute detail lol xD

  • Ugh, I can’t sign in to my regular Gmail on YouTube without my Chrombook signing me out of my school Gmail on Google Docs

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Well I was absent from here yesterday. It was a very busy day and I was not able to make progress on UM. So I still stand at 6:00 of gameplay and have yet to reach the Alola Photo Club. I might be busy today as well and the day after, and the day after…In other words, I feel like I am being stranded on Melemele while everyone else is finishing these games.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I haven’t started yet.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        The misery of others does not make me any happier. But I am glad that I may be stranded with you.

      I enjoyed your Stakata however you spell it demolition you posted yday :]

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      So what’s the last move you’re running?

      • Chaos

        Poison Jab

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Good to know

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Just encountered my first shiny in USUM, not surprisingly via a Worm Hole. Will post a pic once i get back to the PMC

  • TheReece25

    So is everyone doing the worm hole method to find shinies? I might even search for them now… Sounds super easy.. super quick… Lol. The way I like it.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      I’m not hunting for shinies but since encountering a legendary is more likely to occur the farther you go in the worm holes is also the method to increase shiny encounters, its most likely to happen.

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      It’s good but as a warning there’s only 20 Pokémon it works on

      • TheReece25

        O… Ok

  • Deerlia

    A few Pokemon Parody ideas i had:

    “There ain’t more Rocks to climb~ (Feat. Magcargo)”

    “Hello Roto”

    “Steppin’ on Mantine Beach”

    • Butter Geek

      I always wanted a parody of Katy Perry’s Roar about Incineroar

  • Butter Geek

    Can I SR to get a shiny totem or are they locked?

  • UnburdenedLegume

    And now i run into Xerneas. What ball to use?

    • Butter Geek

      Love?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Great would be best but if you’re still out of those then maybe Quick?

    • Luxury

    • NO USE BEAST BALL

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Yeah Beast works, I don’t know how many you’d need, like a 100 at least I expect.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          I used 7, just caught it in a beast ball 😀

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Wow, nice, you must be lucky. It took ages for me to just catch a Munchlax in one.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            It was on 1 HP & i had thunder wave, plus it ran out of Horn Leech PP i think

    • Butter Geek

      WAIT DOESN’T QUICK BALL HAVE AN X ON IT?

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Level or beast

  • DucoLamia

    So I’ve cleared my mind a bit. Here are my honest thoughts on the game and warning, it’s long and not pretty.

    Having completed the game and currently finishing up the last of the post game stuff, I will say that the game on it’s own is good. It does not deserve one star ratings. I’ve played one star games and this is clearly not one of them. However, I can also clearly notice that so little minimal effort was put into this game. As a third version it is incredibly dissapointing, but I already played through it and paid for it so I only have myself to blame. If you’ve never played Sun and Moon, you can pick this version up because it’s clearly better and fixes minor issues that made Sun and Moon worse. These games practically make them redudant. However, the problem with the game is that it really should’ve been DLC or one version. It would’ve gone a lot better with the reception if that was the case.

    But instead, we got two versions for the full price of $40 without any major changes to the gameplay other than minor story fixes and some new Pokemon added to it.

    For that reason alone, this is probably the worst “third” version of a Pokemon game I played next to Crystal ( but even then, I would want to play Crystal over this a bit more) Because even though third versions are just DLC in itself there’s still something NEW. A new Legendary Pokemon. A New gameplay change. Something really. Even with Emerald and Platinum, they are clearly superior and make their games better. They practically make themselves one of their kind. Even BW2 ( if you consider that a third game) has way more than this game could ever give you.

    But USUM? We already know of Necrozma so that surprise is gone there. I admit I was excited to learn more about it, but even then it didn’t make up for some of that lost excitement. There were too many glaring flaws that bogged this game down and I would be more excepting of these flaws if this was there first game. But it isnt. And that’s the ducking problem. This isn’t Sun and Moon. This is a enhanced version. And you’re telling me this is ALL you can do? The game that’s the send-off for the 3ds and THIS IS ALL YOU DO? I am very disappointed. Not as a consumer, but as a Pokemon fan. Gamefreak can do better and I know they can.

    Yeah, Starter Pokemon don’t take a half an hour to get anymore, but they still force feed tutorial down your throat. ( And don’t tell me it’s for new players either. My little brother was a half an hour in and just wanted to catch a Pokemon and he asked why the tutorial took so long. If a little kid is asking that, you know, your TARGET AUDIENCE, there’s a problem).

    Yeah, there are story changes but those changes seldom appear until 3/4th of the way in and even then, it’s great but so short.

    Yeah, there are new features and Pokemon, but the encounter rate for the new Pokemon is still complete garbage. It took me an hour to find an Alolan Pichu.

    Seriously, you have to have the patience of a saint to get through this game’s 3/4ths quarter to get to the good stuff. The Necrozma stuff doesn’t start until you’re 3/4 into the game and before then there is simply not enough to keep you interested. Melemele is still a chore to get through and the fact is, your audience will not continue to play the game if they find it boring. It doesn’t matter if you keep feeding them info about this new world. Gamefreak, just let them go into it. Don’t tell them everything. Just let them enjoy it.

    Now as for me, I already mentioned in another comment that I loved SM and I really do. There were glaring flaws, but in that game there was a clear effort to make it something good. But I can’t extend that to USUM. It’s really a love-hate relationship for me. I love the minor changes they made to this game to make it more vibrant and the fact that it’s more difficult and that there’s actually a decent Post-game for once in a Pokemon game. But I also hate it because this game is kind of a waste. There is no need to spend $40 on this game UNLESS you ABSOLUTELY loved SM. If you didn’t love SM or even liked it, I can’t recommend it honestly. It’s not worth it and it won’t change your mind. Which is a shame. I guess to me, Alola will always be more style over the substance.

    Sorry for the long post. Just my thoughts.

    • Fedex

      No worries you are entitled to your own opinion and I feel where you’re coming from. Maybe a lot of focus is on switch idk but ATM im just leaving melemele so I can’t say much.
      I do however expect them to be a bigger improvement then PT and Emerald but we’ll see as I play more.

    • MK126

      I feel you especially with the encounter rates. I found a pichu on rt1 WAY faster than I found a hawlucha on rt3 and hawlucha has a higher encounter rate. One would think that the encounter rate would be higher for pokemon that are “native” to that region… like there shouldn’t be a reason why I can find a mankey or a machop as often as a cuteifly

  • UnburdenedLegume

    AND NOW ITS UXIE WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE?????????? TIMER BALL??

  • Butter Geek

    Alola Photo Club should include Poses for all signature Z-Moves

    • MenacingCascoon

      Signature Z moves use the same poses as their specific type..

      • Butter Geek

        Aren’t they like, a little diffrent?

        • MenacingCascoon

          Nope. They just have a different camera angle sometimes

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Casc is absolutely right, they’re literally identical besides both of Pikachu’s, one which has a unique dance and one that doesn’t even have a dance

    Mantine surf is amazing!
    My first attempt at it, what do you think guys??

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I think it’s a decent first score, but I air until you unlock new moves and get even better. Then the real fun begins!

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        How do you unlock other moves?

        • Unseelie Fairy

          You mean things that aren’t the twists? Git gud.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            okey

    • Unseelie Fairy

      You’re also on a higher difficulty, if you surf from Melemele you’re on the Easy Course, if you surf from Akala you’re on the Super Course, etc

      • Fedex

        So its easier to get points on an easier difficulty? So if I want higher score I should be surfing from melemele??

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Each course has its own high scores and stuff

          • Fedex

            Oh I see. Well it reminds me of the Pokeathlon and I was crazy addicted to that, looks like I’ve found a new toy to keep me busy xD

        The team also had eject button on a torkoal

    • Someone who has a unique strategy

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        That’s not unique, their entire team had fucking eject buttons

  • My list of shinies I’m hunting with corresponding pokeballs

    Shiny legend pokeballs

    Mewtwo – Dusk Ball
    Entei – Heavy Ball/Ultra Ball
    Suicune – Dive Ball
    Lugia – Heal Ball
    Latias – Quickball/Ultra Ball
    Azelf – Great Ball
    Uxie – Quick Ball
    Mesprit – Heal Ball
    Virizion – Love Ball/Heal Ball
    Cobalion – Beast Ball
    Terrakion – Timer Ball
    Yveltal – Luxury/Premier
    Registeel – Beast Ball
    Regirock – Really doesn’t matter just don’t kill it like ya did in ORAS
    Regigigas – Master Ball
    Palkia – Beast Ball
    Giratina – Beast Ball

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Real talk, why not Dusk for Yveltal

      • Cuz idk

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Premier is nicer than Luxury for it (tho cherish is ideal)

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I might do Mewtwo in Friend Ball, though it’ll likely fail so I’ll go for Dusk.
      Latias I’d go Luxury, same with Uxie.
      Yveltal I’d go Premier.
      Regirock I’d choose Luxury or Ultra.
      I think these are good matches though. GL getting them.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    I think my Incineroar will have a personality like a cross between All Might and Bakugo (When angered) from Boku no Hero Academia. Also my Drampa might be a bit like Eraserhead.

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      I love this but it also made me think of Drampa with Eraserhead’s face which is no joke one of the most horrifying things I’ve ever pictured

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Honestly it’s because of the hair going up when Drampa attacks being similar to Ereserhead using his Quirk and also his eyes going red from overuse are like Drampas.

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          I can see it

    • EarthenWarrior

      Mine’s just a gigantic A-Hole

      Always itching to fight
      Boasts its power
      Relentlessly competitive
      Not afraid to cut loose and really go all out

      • Monkeyfuzz

        That seemed a bit obvious to me, I wanted it to be more heroic but with an angry “I’ll kill them all” side.

  • So tell me, is Gunk Shot available via Tutor before Post Game?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I believe it’s at the battle tree tutor, so post game.

      • Grrr that’s makes me mad

        I wanted to try and use Passimian on my team, but want a Fairy counter

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Then just do it. There’ll usually be a type your team can’t counter well either

          • Yeah at least the only time Fairy is a big threat is Mina (Which Furball can probably just burn up with her Flamethrower)

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It gets Iron Head as an Egg Move.

          • Ooo maybe it will get a Fairy counter then

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Does nobody else on your team cover it?

          • Well I have hit no problems yet but when I get farther

            -Incineroar will most likely struggle with them (does it get any Steel or Poison moves?)
            -Lopunny doesn’t get coverage either
            -Lycanroc won’t have it most likely
            -Dewgong might have something
            -Shiinotic may be Fairy, but no clue how it fairs against them

          That is my issue with this generation, I am a fan of Fairy types but I like having my coverage too. Most of the steel types are legendaries, and Poison types are difficult to locate. There is AloSlash, AloTrio, Togedamaru, Toxapex, Salazzle, and AloMuk. Pretty limited on choices here.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            They are fantastic Poison types though. Also you can get enough coverage on other ‘mon, even if it’s just neutral.

          • Yeah we need the variety excluding Alolan forms, we got one single Steel type that wasn’t legendary of UB

  • Govnah

    found a second shiny Swanna…

  • Unseelie Fairy

    What could ruin a regional variant of your favorite Pokémon?

    • Chaos

      As in what is the absolute last thing I would want as a regional variant of my favourite Pokemon…

      Fairy Type Metagross

      ’nuff said

      • Plz explain

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Oh come on imagine a ribbon armed metagross strangling stuff to death

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I’m imagining it as a Fairy/Fire type birthday cake with Ribbon Arms and a candle X on its’ face.

      W E L P

      • Sunniera 2.0

        My sentiments exactly. I type this as my sister takes a Snapchat of me. Neither of us attempting ordinary human interactions such as talking.

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    Without a doubt Kommo-o and Araquanid are moving up a tier

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Is Kommo-o still the worst Pseudo?

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        It depends to be honest

        • Sunniera 2.0

          So would it be a close competition between Kommo-o and Hydreigon (my favorite Pseudo but Fairy types and middling speed do not help it)?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            No Hydreigon is actually considered to be quite good
            It’s between Kommo-o and Goodra, Kommo-o has a small lead

          • Sunniera 2.0

            That is nice to know. Actually I am wondering what are the tiers of Pseudos. Would it be…
            Salamence
            Metagross
            Garchomp
            Tyranitar
            Dragonite
            Hydreigon
            Kommo-o
            Goodra?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Counting megas, possibly. Tyranitar and garchomp are close considering the new meta

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Yea, I was counting Megas. Thanks.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Yw

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Sorry if I’m annoying you, did you get a chance to look at my team yet?

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Oh wait crap put that here again

        • Monkeyfuzz
          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Why so many z moves?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Only because I haven’t used them, this is more for in-game. Afterwards I’ll change them to Life Orb for Mimikyu etc.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Hmm.. what tier?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Any, I probably won’t use this exact team for competitive, I just like to have them at their general competitive best for if I want to use any of them.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Hmmm… as of now it’s a tad unbalanced

          • Monkeyfuzz

            What should I do?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            First of all, Lycan dusk and Drampa are not exactly good. Incineroar can work in a much lower tier but not anything high

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, they can be relegated to in-game use only then.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Where’s a good place to double battle in SuMo? I want to put moves on my Smeargle.

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Got a Poipole from the GTS! 😀

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Cool, I’ll be needing to do that when I go after my Shiny Charm.

  • Govnah

    Its nice that shiny stay shiny in the ultra wormhole for regular mons or i would of had my first fail

  • Butter Geek

    I just got to Poni. How long do I have to wait until I get Mimikium Z?

    • You don’t get it through the main story. You need to follow Mimikyu in the Thrifty Megamart at night, according to this guide I found

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer
  • Unseelie Fairy

    If any mods happen to see this, when will it be okay to talk about Zeraora?

    • Dicie

      I don’t think there should be a problem discussing it.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Okay, thank you! 😀

  • EarthenWarrior

    When I get home I’m gonna try and find a wormhole shiny

    What’s your distance record so far
    Mines like 5,526

    • Sunniera 2.0

      How many light years is the perimeter of Melemele. That is my record so far.

  • Sunniera 2.0

    If I may open this thought to discussion, A lot of the Pokémon in this generation are very humanoid in shape. Do you think his has anything to do with a newer team of people working on Gen 7? Also do you think there will be less of Pokémon like these in the next generation since it has been reported that the veterans are working on them? Finally, what region do you want to see the next games to be based on?

    Myself:
    I would say yes to my first two thoughts and I would prefer to go to a colder region. Especially since we are going to end up having 4 years in regions that are hot-ORAS and SM/USUM-if we end up getting Gen 8 during Holdiay season next year.

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Hmmmm…. possibly? I don’t know if it’s the same people though…..

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Sorry for asking you to clarify but the same people as who (I am assuming you are talking about the veterans)?

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          I mean like I’m pretty sure some of this gens designs were made by veterans

    • Butter Geek

      My hope/idea is a Big UK region divided into 4 parts (like Alola) with a small Ireland Region next to it. You can visit Kalos Post game.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I liked this concept initially with SM, especially with how they divided up the Pokédex. However, regions like these may have contributed to the lack of new areas to be added if a 3rd version or sequels to be made. USUM is the example. Of course they can just do away with 3rd versions and sequels in future generations. I mainly want a colder region so there will be more ice-types introduced in the generation. I think Sinnoh is generally treated as the coldest region and they added 7 new Ice types. That and I want a couple of cold years. Gen 8 followed by DP remakes or Platinum remake (depends on whether they decide to do away with the two versions model or not).

      • Unseelie Fairy

        The UK is four different countries. I’d be disappointed if my country was crammed into the game as 1/4th of a game :>

        • Butter Geek

          There’s no chance they’d make a region based on one of the Four UK countries, so the only representation you could get would be as a part of the UK region.

    • Dicie

      If by humanoid you’re referring to the Ultra Beasts, then I doubt we’ll be getting similar designs unless there will be another story arc involving them. I would love to see a region based on Greece, and maybe changing up the Gym formula again to involve the mythological gods/goddesses or relics of some sort.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        No I am referring to Salazzle, Lurantis, Tsareena and the final evolutions of the Starters. I would also like to see a return to the Gyms next generation and a change to the formula to incorporate the local myths would be really cool. They did that with the trials to convey how secluded the region is. However, it may be unlikely considering how they really shoved down the sci-fi elements with the Ultra Beasts on a region based on Hawaii. I guess it depends on how willing Gamefreak is to take a risk.

        • Butter Geek

          I really hope Ultra Beasts reappear, or like the 3rd legendary is an UB, just so we can have totems. Or Maybe something simmilar to Totems but more just spawning im the wild, Maybe with a diffrent name… Raid Pokemon, maybe?

          • Sunniera 2.0

            I am not sure what to hope for. They have been changing up how many legendaries are introduced each generation-especially in gen 7. I honestly wonder how they are going to handle legendaries If they abandon the double version model. The strong legendary trio was introduced in Gen 3 since it best capitalized on the release model they did. Dual versions followed by a 3rd version. If they went the single version route, I was thinking they might just do one Cover Legend, a minor trio or quartet, and miscellaneous legendaries. (Could be UB, something specific to the region’s mythos, or something else).

      • Sunniera 2.0

        The humanoid ones would also include ultra beasts like Pheromosa and Buzzwole.

    • I’d say that I want Gyms back and trial like things for post or side quests (Still am trying to build my own idea for this), UB’s can come back idc either way they are all Pokémon, I want to see one of the following be done for Gen.8: Australia, Canada, Italy, Germany, or India (if Yungoos exists in the Indian region of course)

  • UnburdenedLegume

    What should i use to catch Prinplup?

    • Butter Geek

      Heavy Ball Maybe?

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Your heart.

      Rational side: Heavy Ball seconded.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Either dive or heavy

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Man today has been a very long day…….I still have an hour left of work and I’m soooooooooo tired……been up since 7 and my back is starting to get stuff and sore……I just wanna go home, relax, and play Pokemon

  • Govnah

    Amazon cancelled my steelbook, I guess everything does happen for a reason

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Sorry pal. Have you still not played yet then? That’s a real bummer if you’vr been waiting all this time just to have your order get cancelled

      • Govnah

        nah i got ultra sun i mostly bought it for the collectible steelbook as i collect those

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Gotcha. well it’s still a bummer you couldn’t get the steel case. They’re pretty cool. I’ve always considered trying to get them, but then I hear stories like yours where orders are cancelled.

  • Fedex

    Ok with all the negativity with USUM I wanted to say something great GF has done.
    Mantine surf. What a great feature, graphically amazing and the overworld water mons adds to the realism. And its addicting.
    But what’s even better you get early and easy access to move tutors, vitamins etc
    This alone makes USUM an amazing game for me.

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Too many Wailords. 7.8/10.

      • Fedex

        Haha well played :]
        Or you could say too many fish in the sea 😛

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      My only problem with Mantine surf is I feel like sometimes the block Pokemon spawn too close to each other. I’ve had times where there are just lcusters of them and I can’t possibly pick up steam

      • Fedex

        Haha yeah I see what you mean but it adds to the difficulty and makes it less predictable I’d say :]

        • Nah it’s actually just bullshit but whatever

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Very true. Still fun tho

    • EarthenWarrior

      Surfing at dusk and night is magical

      • Fedex

        It really is the graphics are out of this sea. Pun intended 😛

    • Govnah

      Ultra wormhole riding is 100 times better then that

      • Fedex

        I haven’t played it yet but can’t wait 2 check it out. If it’s 100 times better as you say :]

    • Ultron

      The only thing I dont like about it is that it’s just kind weird, though fun. It’s just one giant wave that spans the entire distance between islands? I feel like it’d be better if there were just a bunch of different waves rather than just one giant one.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        It’s better for the game play tho

        • Ultron

          I know, but the logic of it kinda bothers me

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Fam

            Electric Psychic mice on surfboards thanks to pancakes

            This isn’t the franchise for logic

          • Ultron

            Girl, I know. But the thing with pokemon like that is that it’s essentially magic while giant waves still function according to our world. But it’s fine, it’s not a bad minigame

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Maybe they just have bigger waves? Their logic doesn’t have to be a 1:1 to ours

          • Ultron

            Well I mean it was probably just for gameplay rather than to show their laws of physics are different 😛

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I never said it was different, I just suggested an option :p

    • I predicted it would be the best part of the games

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Gastrodon in USUM is the most random overworld pokemon ever lol

    • Fedex

      Haha wow a gastro.
      I haven’t seen one yet myself

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Blue or Pink? I prefer Blue myself.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    ngl im addicted to ultra warp ride

    • Unseelie Fairy

      GameFreak needs to add more mini games that have nothing to do with battle. Warp, Mantine Surf and Pokeathlon are all amazing

    • EarthenWarrior

      I’m addicted to pokebeans
      *Stuffs a handful in my mouth*
      I can quit anytime I want

    • Fedex

      Wow can’t wait 2 try it. That’s 2 amazingly fun, graphically great and rewarding features in USUM. These games are great :]

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Lure ball for Lombre/ludicolo or Nest?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Nest.

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    Can someone trade me a Blacephalon for a moment so I can register it in the dex?

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • Unseelie Fairy

      Tbf, they’re probably common asf in their world

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I wonder if future pokemon games will do more of this stuff & actually let us explore these worlds a bit more. Doubtful tho knowing GF

  • I love my Grandmother, she went out and bought me from McDonald’s, the Grubbin and Yungoos toys from McDonald’s. Though because I’m headed to my other grandparents, I won’t get them till Friday

    • Ultron

      That was nice

    • Monkeyfuzz

      That was kind of her. Does that mean you have the whole set now?

  • Sunniera 2.0

    After 7:08 of gameplay I have finally Mantine Surfed and gotten to Akala Island! Time for more exciting trials!

    • Fedex

      Similiar to me ive just arrived at Akala. Not sure about game time probably about 10 hours maybe more :]

    The FCC will soon be voting to cut Net Neutrality completely. Net Neutrality is what keeps the internet open and free. Without it, your internet provider can throttle sites and control what you do online.

    Without it, big companies can pay to slow down their competition for the end user. For example, Hulu could pay your internet provider to slow down Netflix and speed up Hulu making you pay more.

    This affects every single thing you do online and all of you use the internet.

    If you play Pokémon show down, this will affect you, if you rely on sites like Pokejungle and Serebii for Pokémon news, this affects you. If you play any game online including Pokémon… THIS AFFECTS YOU

    • Monkeyfuzz

      This is so important. I hate that this is even a thing to question. Internet freedom has become a right, not a privilege, in this age. Doing this is like a dictatorship.

      • It’s unbelievable. Everyone needs to understand what this means and what they can do. I encourage you to tell IRL friends and family members because a lot of mainstream media outlets aren’t putting much out about this.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I would but no-one I know IRL lives over there. It is good general advice though. The thing that worries me is if America does it, how many others will follow? I think we’ve already had it questioned here under the guise of ‘protection from porn’. The thing is Porn may well be an addiction to some and harmful to people, but blocking it for everyone isn’t the right option. Of course it is really an excuse to monitor people, collect information and select what we can see. It is a power nobody should have.

          • Exactly no one should have the right to tell me what to do online

            If I can’t come here anymore because of this… look for me on national news, I’ll be the one who destroyed the FCC headquarters

            This reminds me of the FCC episode of Family Guy. It’s essentially a step so your Government can select what you see, it may be moving their preferred news to the top of your searches or outright preventing you from looking for alternatives to their narrative. This is what China does.

          • I will literally e-mail the fcc or even the white house with a long a$$ speech saying that how can we be a great country when we are doing exactly what Russia, China and North Korea have done censorship

            Keep it on TV not the internet

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Imo no form of media should be censored. Some should be removed if for instance inciting terrorism but the intelligence services are largely on that. The Dark Web will still be unaffected I think so really they won’t stop anything by doing this.

          • Yeah, I have to say if they really want to target something, target the dark web before all else

          • Monkeyfuzz

            That’s really hard to do though. I think the most they can do is try to monitor it, and even then I’m not sure what they are currently capable of.

          • Soggy Auggy

            I just want one with Slush Rush and maybe some egg moves if you feel generous… unfortunately I don’t have a lot of apricorn Pokés but if it’s a dealbreaker I’ll work on finding you what you want in whatever ball

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Nah it’s OK I’ll just breed you one.

          • Soggy Auggy

            Thanks I really appreciate it 🙂 but the trade might have to wait until tomorrow, it’s late here in Germany.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Do you play in german? Can you breed 5IVs? I can trade tomorrow.

          • Soggy Auggy

            I think I have a 6IV ditto laying around. What Pokémon do you want? And no I’m American unfortunately I live in Europe right now

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh OK then. I’m just looking for a 5IV Male Smeargle that isn’t English language. Anyway just @ me here when you are available tomorrow and I should have it ready for you.

          • Soggy Auggy

            Okay thanks again! Idk about smeargles but I’ll find you something good 😊

  • Soggy Auggy

    Btw everyone who has Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp we all need to add each other so we can help each other have good camps. My friend code on ACPC is 67349701422

  • Sunniera 2.0

    So I’ve gotten enough stickers for my first Totem. What nature should I soft-reset for Totem Raticate?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Adamant.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I just got Adamant without having to soft-reset. Is this a sign for me to use the worst Alola form? Nah!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Nop, it’s a sign to open a restaurant in Kalos.

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Jolly

    • Soggy Auggy

      Ugly nature 😂

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Correct answer.

      She’ll smash Cloyster still gives me nightmares.

      • EarthenWarrior

        It got buffed with Liquidation

  • Dicie

    So I had initially planned to use Bewear on my team, but I’m not sure if it’s as useful as Togedemaru. In addition I will have Incineroar, Lycanroc, Mimikyu, Lurantis, and Araquanid.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It’s much better than Togedemaru as long as you have Fluffy I think.

      • Dicie

        Should I make room for Togedemaru elsewhere or is my team okay?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I think it’s OK. Depends if you really want to use it above others. If you remove anything for it it’ll likely be Lycanroc or Lurantis.

    • Soggy Auggy

      Your team looks like it needs a special presence. Meaning, all of the Pokés on your team are physical attackers.

      • Dicie

        What would you recommend :3
        It’s only for the main story, I’ll likely end up breeding another team if I wanna do competitive.

        • Soggy Auggy

          Ribombee, Drampa, A. Ninetales just to name a few

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    ANyone wanna touch trade Blacephalon with me please?? I have stakataka! and Naganadal. I just one more and my dex is complete

    • Soggy Auggy

      Hi sweetie 👋🏻 Lol I don’t have a Blacephalon I just wanted to say hi bae 💕💕💕

      • MenacingCascoon

        You saying hi is even better than a Blacephalon <3!

  • ShinyXatu

    I’ve been enjoying Pocket Camp a LOT. Definitely my favorite Nintendo mobile game so far, no contest. Please give it a try if you’re new to the Animal Crossing franchise, because as a fan, I’m actually amazed that it feels like…well, genuine Animal Crossing!

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Really pretty bummed that Alolan Sandslash doesn’t learn Ice Beam……really would have liked the option of having it……

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Why? It gets Icicle Crash and Spear.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I know, but Ice Beam is a pretty reliable move. I’ll have the Icicle moves on anyway tho.

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Alolan Sandslash has one of the lowest special attack stats of all Pokémon 😡

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Honestly it is only a physical Pokemon. There is no real point trying special on it.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I guess

        • Ultron

          You do realize its base sp attack stat is literally only 25?

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Oh I don’t care lol

          • Ultron

            I mean you’re just not going to do any damage with a move like that. If this was gen 3 before the physical and special split, you’d probably be good, but Icicle Crash can flinch, which is way better than freeze.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            It’s less of a thing I’d actually use and more that I like Ice Beam and wish it was on all Ice types ok……You don’t need to convince me of anything hahaha

    Earthen, I need a minor favor

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You need to perform the ritual to summon him.

      • So he must stamp his feet and roar to the skies “LONG LIVE THE LAAAAAANNNND!”

        • Monkeyfuzz

          No that’s the pre ritual ritual. All Earthen summons require blood sacrifices.

          • Hmm sacrifice a seagull, they already are pests

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I live in an area overrun with them so be my guest.

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Can I borrow your Blacephalon for dex completion purposes? I’ll give it right back

    • EarthenWarrior

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Blacephalon… I need to borrow it sensei

      • Deerlia

        I was watching that clip and this came up…

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        So… can ya?

  • Fedex

    I am feeling so unwell right now guys :/

    • Monkeyfuzz

      What’s up? Somethings been going around my area and I keep getting it.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Sorry to hear that…….Hope you feel better soon. It;s never too fun to be super sick….

      • Fedex

        Thank you friend :]
        It really does kill your day but it hasn’t stopped me from playing ultra sun haha xD

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          That’s the way. When you’re sick play some video games

    • I’m sorry about that 🙁

      I hope you feel better soon

      • Fedex

        Thanks Kurusu! And don’t be it has to happen to me at least once every year :]

      • Fedex

        Can I order some drinks too??

    • Ultron

      Feel better! :c

  • EarthenWarrior

    And my short lived glory on RU immediately ended via 4 consecutive matches of hax

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      I recommend staying off RU unless you’re testing certain mons (Kommo-o and Araq break the tier)

      • EarthenWarrior

        tell that to Shaymin haxing me and the stupid Rimbombee somehow IHKO’s Cloyster

        • Govnah

          git better 😀
          *jumps onto a gogaot rides off into the sunse(

        • Seraph used Wood Hammer

          Ribombee? Wtf
          No but seriously, a set up Kommo-o when I use it takes out two mons at minimum and Araquanid slows nearly everything

          • EarthenWarrior

            F*CK IT I’M ALAWAYS GOING TO BE A FREAKING LOSER, CAN’T DO ANYTHING RIGHT

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Learn how to deal with hazards and Kommo-o before doing extensive RU.

            Fairy types, Stat resetters, and soundproof mons do a lot. For example, if you come in on a cocky Kommo-O with your own, you can outpredict them and sweep. Earlier today I did that and 6-0d someone. I also run araq which , considering his godlike webs is nuts. He forces out specific matchups and webses. He also hits way harder than Galv and is a fair amount bulkier too.
            I mean… that small buff pushed him into the OU viability rankings. He literally comes in clutch every game.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Doesn’t matter, everything is IHKOing Cloyster or Sigilyph
            i’m losing way too much from every angle

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Wonder if/when Pokecharms will update, want to make some new trainer cards.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Why won’t Rotom just shut up?!?!? I hate this…….RotoLoto is fine, but he keeps talking and all I want is to just see the map on the bottom screen………….

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You know he’s why we can’t dive right? Shortcircuiting him is tempting.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Is that actually a reason from the game……….Whelp I hate Rotom for even more reasons now. Can’t wait for gen 8 to get here so we never have to worry about them trying to fill a bottom screen ever again.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          No I made that up, they just couldn’t be bothered to add diving in to the perfect region for diving, this was the only excuse I could think of for their negligence.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            What about on mantine when you sink

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I haven’t played it yet but I’ll assume that doesn’t count.

      • Ultron

        Wow, that reality actually upsets me because dive was so needed in Alola

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Would have been a really cool feature to have in Alola. Imagine us being able to dive and then find underwater caverns and hidden tunnels………..

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It’s not the real reason, that would be laziness, but I would’ve loved dive in this region. Mantine Surf is cool but I’d like to dive and swim past the underwater ‘mon too.

  • EarthenWarrior

            At least you’re not losing to hax, i fall asleep for 3 full turns and he wakes up the very next turn

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Earthen you’re the kind of person to blame a loss on hax when a one health mon gets crit

          • Govnah

            if he doesnt win, it haxs

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I still have a code for 100 revives that came with my game. haha Some day I;ll find a reason to cash that code in.

        Nope I’m a liar. Just checked the box and it’s 12 revives. I was WAY off haha

      Don’t complain about getting a shiny. Unless that shiny is like Garchomp or something and sucks.

        But it’s a stupid Audino (I have like 3 shinies already) and now I forever have the stain of this thing being my first UWH shiny and first overall Shiny in US

          Yeah, but it’s like 2 shinies in one since it has a mega

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Tiny Kommo-o is tiny

      • EarthenWarrior

        No duh they’re barely over 5 feet

        Also they kinda lean down and not stand all the way

        • Unseelie Fairy

          I doubt they can stand up all the way, seeing how heavy their armour is. It’s still a midget tho

  • MenacingCascoon

    Does anyone have blacephalon to trade? Pleeeeeeease. I will trade it back!

  • Unseelie Fairy

    The reason Kommo-o isolates itself is because it’s afraid of Sylveon

  • Are you kidding?

    THEY REMOVED THE LILLIE SCENE IN EXEGGUTOR ISLAND NOOOOO

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Im fine with that ;3

    • zeldaoreonerd

      I KNOW I WAS SO UPSET

    • Ultron

      Why you mad? They altered it because they’re homophobic

      • True but it’s better than nothing >:(

        • Ultron

          I’d rather not be reminded about their issues with people who want to cross dress/love people of the same gender tho

          • It’s still a cute moment and it fuels my ship homophobia or not

      • Unseelie Fairy

        The straight version of the scene was removed too, because Lillie doesn’t even come to Exeggutor island this time. This is practically lunging to conclusions

        • Ultron

          No I meant they altered it the first time because they’re homophobic. I imagine they removed it because they didn’t want to be labeled as such

          • Unseelie Fairy

            I can’t remember any differences between the genders from my playthroughs but if making an eleven year old character straight is homophobic I’d remove that scene too lol

          • Ultron

            It’s not that, it’s that they didn’t want people to read into it between lillie and the female character. It’s just ridiculous they thought the slight change in dialogue was necessary when changing it is what caused people to raise eyebrows. But it’s no secret they’re super behind the times at gamefreak. Like every other nintendo franchise allows cross dressing except pokemon.

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Or it’s just that Lillie is straight so a possible romantic aspect isn’t meant to be as obvious as it is with a male?

            Games like Tomodachi Life and Animal Crossing let you crossdress because their models are extremely simple and they wouldn’t have to adapt it between genders. Mario and Zelda’s crossdressing is meant to be more humourous than anything. None of this is actually done because they’re progressive, Japan is a traditional country and Nintendo is all entertainment. It’s not a political statement at all.

            If you think this is an issue compared to all the real issues gay people (including myself) have faced and continue to face, then I think you net to get your priorities straight.

          • Ultron

            I just think it’s stupid because it wasn’t romantic. “I want to travel together with you,” was changed to, “I’d like to become a trainer, and learn all the things you know.” It’s a stupid change. Apparently there can’t be close platonic relationships between females.

            I also don’t have priorities when it comes to this, but I think more clothing and hair options are a change they should consider making in the future

          • Unseelie Fairy

            What? They both imply Lillie wants to stay with you in some degree lol, because they both basically imply Lillie wants to be with you as she learns. It’s two different ways of basically saying she admires you and wants to learn from you, and both sound platonically pretty freaking close.

            “Apparently there can’t be close platonic relationships between females.”

            The whole story is about your relationship with Lillie fam. You get pretty platonic with her even with a very minor line change which can apparently be taken as homophobic even though both are roughly as romantic as each other.

            Clothing and hair should be the bottom of the long list of things they should consider. Their core gamplay mechanics and story need sorted well before something which a fringe part of the audience want.

            I’m in disbelief homophobia came up at all during this conversation when it had nothing to do with homophobia like at all.

          • Ultron

            Well yeah, homophobic is a bit of an overreaction and I don’t really think they are, but like I said, I think the change was completely unnecessary. You’re free to disagree, but I just cannot see any point in changing it the way they did. I would never have picked up a romantic hint from Lillie UNTIL they altered the dialogue. Honestly the exclusion of that scene from USUM is strange though.

          • Speaking of lines a game changed for the same scene, still salty about a very certain Yo-kai Watch scene

            The Truck scene… When you first meet Jibanyan (a more or less secondary protagonist in the game) in the original he screams as he attacks a truck “Take this you evil beast!”, in the second game however it was changed to “Take this you dumb truck”… not a large change, but I found it annoying af that they changed one of my favorite scenes from the entire game

      • Daedardus

        This is like saying we can’t be mad because something is racist.

  • zeldaoreonerd

    I forgot how good the Vast Poni Canyon theme was! I love taking my time in this game for once because of the difficulty. My team members are all late level 50s so hopefully that’ll be good enough for the story sequence up ahead.

            Like heck y’all said I should’ve have level 14 and 15’s for Gumshoos and beat it with 13’s and 12’s

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Incineroar dies in one hit guaranteed

            Well hopefully Dewgong can survive and get a Sheer Cold in

          • Oh Passimian is already dead like before the fight has even begun

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            My Araquanid with base 135 special defense died in a single hit from a special attack

      This is absolutely brilliant! It took down all my team members but i used a max revive on my starter. Such a great battle!

    • DucoLamia

      I should’ve done that TBH. That fight was so scummy at how unfair it is. Like, I love the difficulty in this game, but how the hell do you anything against….THAT? The only reason I didn’t completely die was because I had affection clause on all my mons.

    So i started ACPC. Made me realize, this game is anti-me with all the customization. Its not terrible tho.

  • zeldaoreonerd

    I thin I’m going to SR for a shiny Poipole as my last team member. It’s such a good shiny the coloring is so cool! But this means I’m going to have to replace Noivern who has been with me since the beginning which is a little sad.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Do you have a Timid synchronizer? I recommend it. GL getting it 🙂

    • Luigi301

      how soon do you get poipole?

      • zeldaoreonerd

        Right after completing the main story arc involving Necrozma they offer it as a gift

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well Kommolium Z is banned

    • EarthenWarrior

      In RU

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        It was obviously going to happen

      • Chaos

        Cos its actually OP in that tier. I feel it’s a bit more balanced in UU . But we will see. If it gets banned to OU it won’t get any use at all which will be a shame…

    • Lord of Snails

      You should try it out in doubles or in vgc. I am sure you can have some fun doing that.

  • Mina is my spirit animal

    An artist girl who is just totally dead inside and loves fairy types

    • Shady

      This’s not an animal

      • I don’t think you understood

        • Shady

          I know wat spirit animal means

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Humans are animals. Learn biology before coming for her lol

        • Shady

          How dare to put that scum in animal kingdom?

    • Ultron

      I haven’t gotten to her trial, but from what I hear, I kinda like it.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I thought she was less dead on the inside and more stoner

  • EarthenWarrior
    • DucoLamia

      I use an Assault Vest Bewear and it works wonders.

  • Sunniera 2.0

    So I have been rethinking my team, and I am wondering if anyone can help me get a Glaceon before the 2nd Trial?

    • Sunniera 2.0

      I would just need to trade the Eevee over and have this person level it up near the Icy Rock and trade it back to me. Anyone up for it before the night ends? (1 hour and 40 minutes).

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I can do it, how far into Lanakila is the Icy Rock in Sun?

        • Sunniera 2.0

          I think it would be quicker to get there if you head from the Pokémon League. Thanks. I can’t use Pokémon Bank because I left my SM games at my University. I can get on Festival Plaza now. My FC is 0791-2546-9720.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK FC: 0748 – 2744 – 4660 IGN: James, can you attach a Rare Candy? I don’t want to level it too much.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Yea. Give me a sec.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Also like last time I am Soggy.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, coming online now.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Thanks again. Let me know when you are ready.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            You want Icy Wind on it? Also I taught Quick Attack over Tackle, hope that’s OK.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Yes and that is cool.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            What you want me to teach over for IW?

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Tail Whip.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, coming back to trade.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            I as well.

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Thanks again for helping me out with one of these late night trades.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            NP 🙂

          • Soggy Auggy

            Bruh what?? Your character’s name is Soggy?!

  • What should I name Necrozma

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer
    • Monkeyfuzz

      Nice one, and in a beast ball too, that will be valuable for you to breed and trade for a while.

    • Shady

      Did he use all these thunders on u?

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Yep, killed half my team

  • Ultron

    Okay, the Animal Crossing app is pretty amazing. I take back what I said.

  • DucoLamia

    I caught Zygarde….in a premier ball. I was joking…. what?

  • Rockcrawdaunt

    So since I was never really that excited about USUM, since I never saw a reason to drop 50 bucks on a game that seemed only marginally different (though I’ve heard good things), looking forward, the next big game is gen 8/ switch and I’m thrilled. It might be too soon to get excited, but news will be dropping about the new starters, region, legendaries, titles, evil team, and more in the coming months and that is always such a great time for me. I look forward to things in life all the time but adding Pokémon news/ rumors to the daily excitement is such a blessing.

    • It will probably be much longer than a few months

      • Unseelie Fairy

        If Gen 8 comes out next year, we’ll see obvious hints of it by the end of the year. Such as Zeraora being revealed with, or soon after, the movie.

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        Longer than a few months? If the games come out in November like sun and moon did, won’t we see the titles and things in May or earlier? And before that there wasn’t magearna right?

        • The games are for a whole new system fam. It probably wo t be out by 2018

  • Minor spoilers so I may or may not be tearing up because the credits are G/S/C/HGSS style

  • Josh Omega

    So I just finished breath of the wild and I must say that was a truely beautiful game! Was kind of sad ending it in all honesty. That said I will for sure being buying the expansion pass in the near future for the extra story lol I need more! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b1510aca3a7156dd16b0f7512c5a56387be6aa8bbc666b7183b832eabce2b1cc.jpg

  • MenacingCascoon

    I love the outfits in this game!! I just got done karate outfit and I love it!!

    • MenacingCascoon

      Also I got the shiny charm before kiawe trial which is also handy

      • EarthenWarrior

        The hell?

        • He traded over all her Pokémon to fill the Dex then I think touch traded the new ones

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    I love it when I set up, they have a mon that directly counters me, I point it out to them out of pure pity and they LITERALLY DON’T EVEN SWITCH TO IT

  • EarthenWarrior

    So far all I’ve done in US is try to organize my competitive Pokemon and hatching eggs for the IV checker, I still need a full set of synchronizer and nature dittos

    I have them in Sun but…would I ever need to go back in there ever again?

  • Butter Geek

    Trying to make a new name for my Dark/Flying Regional Bird Storkder, cause I found out a Murder is a group of Crows. So I’m thinking about Storkill, Storkiller or something like that. Any suggestions?

    • Is it a mix of Storks and Crows?

      • Butter Geek

        Just a Stork

        • Then why is there anything about crows involved? But I’d say for a name Storiller

          • Butter Geek

            There’s nothing with crows involved, I just didn’t know that a Murder was a group of storks when I made the name Storkder and now I thought that I should rename it.

    • Butter Geek

      Maybe you @EarthenWarrior ?
      You’re great at fakemon names

      • EarthenWarrior

        Hmmmmm Storkruel is all I got but that clashes with my dark/flying Cuckoo bird Cookruel

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        *coughs violently*
        I’m here too dawg

        • EarthenWarrior

          You should get that checked

        • Butter Geek

          Yeah, just Earthen is more likely to anwser after I compliment him, you don’t need that, right?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            True

          • EarthenWarrior

            =_=

          • Butter Geek

            Then… you have any name suggestions?…

  • UnburdenedLegume

    What ball goes best with shiny Drapion?

  • EarthenWarrior

    SOMETHING IS WRONG
    I left my Necrozma in Evelup for the necessary 63 sessions to max out his SpAtk and it’s saying it only went up by 114

    Granted I haven’t developed it but that still shouldn’t mean the time needed changed OR HAS IT

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer
    • Sunniera 2.0

      Floor J*zz really saved your team in the end there. (I censored it in fear of getting this post put under approval by Disqus).

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        You’re forgetting the real star here
        Araquanid ;3
        Seriously, I would have 100% lost without those lunges

        • Sunniera 2.0

          Well it’s a given that Bubble B***y will always be there for you. (In this day and age no one knows what words are safe or not).

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Buddy is safe
            Him and Floor Make an amazing team

          • Sunniera 2.0

            I know. I was just making a joke.
