  • Me and my new holiday form are first! Wooohoooo!!!!!

  • Iron Hydride

    I love how you guys are displaying the merch, very non-intrusive and compact
    which allows for the article to have more content without being dauntingly big

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    I like how the merch is being displayed so it doesn’t make the article too long. Now it’s way better to see all this christmas stuff :3

  • I also like the new way they are displaying the merchandise here

  • Some of you already have, but let me know if y’all like/dislike the new way the merchandise pictures are presented!

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I think it’s an improvement. Let’s us see all the new merch, but doesn’t clog up the screen like ti used to. At times when there was a crap ton of merch it felt like I was scrolling down to the comments forever.

      • Glad I’m not the only one who thought so too. Here’s to more organized posts! haha

    • ShinyXatu

      While it was nice to see everything in one glance, this definitely looks more professional so it should stay this way.

      • Yer, that was the main reason I kept it in its long form for so long. haha I felt it was better to see everything at a quick glance…also I’ve actually been trying to get the slideshow to work for a good few weeks now, but for whatever reason there was some weird issue where it would always screw with the formatting of the post until now. haha

    • LunaMoon

      I really enjoy this one because of its modernist look and how organized it is. The other version was also nice but it took up too much room, this is more dense and has a better way of looking through them.

      • Yeah, the posts were always a little bit daunting when there was hella merch. Thanks for the feedback!

  • MK126

    I feel like i need a grass pokemon on my team to make it balanced but im a bit too far in the game to train one i feel

    • LunaMoon

      You should try to make sure your team is as balanced as possible.

      • MK126

        I definitely try… right now my team is komala, Mareanie, vikavolt, mimikyu, rockruff and incineroar

        • LunaMoon

          Nice, just need a grass-movie at least.

          • MK126

            Komala learns wood hammer right?

          • LunaMoon

            I don’t know.

  • LunaMoon

    I’m happy to say that today, I filled up an entire box of USUM shinies! 🙂 Granted that a lot are shiny repeats, I’m still proud of myself, as at most I got ~1-3 walking shinies.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Bored….I want to try for a shiny charm or a living dex but I just don’t have the motivation

    • Ultron

      Its super easy

      • LunaMoon

        Not as easy as last game.

        • Ultron

          True, but that’s why if you’re gonna do it, probably do it in ORAS

          • LunaMoon

            Yeah but I took out literally all my Pokemon from there and hunting Pkmn there would be impossible without any of ’em there to help XD

      • EarthenWarrior

        Not entirely, still requires a astronomical amount of time and energy

        • Ultron

          I did it in like a week in ORAS.

  • LunaMoon

    Yey I now have Sinnoh + Kanto Pikachus.

  • Ugh, I wish I didn’t have to complete the Pokedex to get the Shiny Charm. It’s so tedious

    • Make a live dex. Do it once and you never have to again

    • Iron Hydride

      The whole point of it is that it’s a reward tho

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Sorry but I don’t want to get just a diploma for completing a whole dex, the Shiny Charm is basically the perfect reward for it

      • Even with the Shiny Charm, I just don’t feel an incentive for completing the Dex. I can’t think of any other ways, but just something other than that. Whatever, that’s just how I feel.

  • LunaMoon

    Anyone know what time dusk arrives in USUM? I just got to the reverse world with this Solgaleo and it’s 5:05 pm right now (in my game at least)

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Are you trying to evolve Rockruff to Dusk Lycanroc? All you have to do is level it past 25 between 5 and 8. It shouldn’t matter what the game is loading for the sky. If you’re on US then it’s pm and if your’re on UM then you gotta get up in the am to evolve. At least I think that’s how it works

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Not 5 and 8………I meant 5 and 6

      • LunaMoon

        Yep. I went to the reverse world and am waiting for evening but it is 5pm here, but I refuse to believe the only way for me to evolve is at 5 am. If that’s it, I demand the Moon to be denied.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          It;s not how the game looks tho. It’s the time you have to look at. Even if the game is loading a blue sky in US when it’s past 5 you’re Rockruff will still evolve. It doesn’t matter if the sky is orange or not.

          • LunaMoon

            Yay

    • 5:00-5:59PM EST in US
      5:00-5:59AM EST in UM (Unless you’re in the Reverse World, of course)

      • LunaMoon

        OK, good.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Guzma has been defeated and I have Bugium Z. Now to go rescue Lillie I assume. Unless the story takes a hard turn anyway. Either way it’s exciting to finally be getting to the point where the story picks up. Should be a lot of fun!

  • LunaMoon

    I wish you could breed Lunala with Lunastone and create a moon-breed exclusive Pokemon, same with Solgaleo and Solatone. It’d be pretty cool!

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I wonder if and when they’ll release old color pallet Magearna. Seems like a waste if they don’t. And before you bring up Eternal Floette, at least Floette had a story thing going on for it. Old colors Magearna wasn’t ever shown in the game period so it seems like a waste of time and effort is they don’t release it

  • LunaMoon

    Uhh, what? My RockRuff didn’t evolve. I’m:
    – At the reverse world
    – It’s between 5 and 6 (my 3DS is an hour ahead so although it’s 4 now it’s 5 in the game.)
    – Evolving it.
    What is the deal?

    • MK126

      Im havin the same problem lol only mine is at level 40 😂

      • LunaMoon

        Something’s going wrong!

        • MK126

          Idk what time im supposed to be lookin at

          • LunaMoon

            Me 2

          • MK126

            Well it says 5:40 in my game time but i think it might be 17:00-17:59

          • LunaMoon

            So far it’s 5:47 in my game but it’s still day.

  • LunaMoon

    Well, I can officially confirm Dusk Lycanroc is purposely programmed to be unobtainable other than 5-5:59 am. It appears Dusk Lycanroc is a taboo Pokemon in UM. What a shame.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Alright here’s the plan
    I’m gonna wait until FuzzMonkey has my Sandshrew ready for breeding (only now I’m realizing that I can’t nickname it Snowshrew and Snowslash so I gotta figure that out)

    And once I finished Ultra Moon it will be my new holding space for the gigantic amount of bank stuff while I work on my living dex, region by region
    Hopefully a region every week it’s not gonna be all bad but I’m the type of guy who’ll probably try to get everything from scratch

    I wish Audino grinding was a thing… Seriously a job like this is gonna need a hell of a lot of leveling

    • Iron Hydride

      Just breed off the Sandshrew he sends you so it doesn’t get the Exp boost and you can nickname it

      • EarthenWarrior

        …….but I want the exp boost…

        • Iron Hydride

          Scrub

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well is it wrong that I want my Pokemon to level up fast

          • Iron Hydride

            Yes.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Or should I just relentlessly torture myself by hacking 0iv Pokemon and after every battle I feed them EV lowering berries and have toxic orbs equipped
            Oh here’s a thought! Every time I level up I jam this rusty screwdriver into my thighs!

          • Iron Hydride

            Learn to take a joke you dingus

          • EarthenWarrior

            Of all people I’d thought you’d enjoy my pain

          • Iron Hydride

            I don’t live off of pain

            I live off regret and Chinese food

        • LunaMoon

          Do some Roto Lottos and hope for EXP Boost.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Do Refresh.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      If I, Monkeyfuzz, give it to you as an egg then you can nickname it.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Whatever you say UzzkeyFmon
        But no can do I still want Icicle Spear and Metal Claw

        • Iron Hydride

          He can give you icicle Spear and metal claw in an egg?

          • EarthenWarrior

            …I rather do it so its Adamant with 5ivs minus SpAtk

            It’s just easy if I just got the seed, then I can worry about the details later

          • Iron Hydride

            Earthen. The egg will hatch the exact same thing Monkeyfuzz sends you if he hatched it in his own game.

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’m not paying for all that effort on his behalf

            I just needs a heavy ball, nothing more nothing less

          • Iron Hydride

            Youre not putting in any effort lol, he doesn’t have to do this at all

          • EarthenWarrior

            I am referring to him making sure everything is right including nature, IVs and egg mores, I don’t want him to do so much for something I can do entirely myself

            Just a female in a heavy ball is all I need

          • Iron Hydride

            Then you clearly didn’t understand what I said then. I said that him sending you an egg, which is actually easier for him, will give the exact same results as him trading a live one for you. He’s willing to send you a ready one and you’re just making a fuss about it

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It can have Spear. It learns Metal Claw at level 14.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Ugh fine rely on Icicle spear for a short while
            It’s pretty much gonna rely on that and metal claw until I get X-Scissor or Shadow Claw or Leech Life

    • LunaMoon

      Audino, grinding takes a long time….get it….heh…I made a funny…

      • EarthenWarrior

        Groan

  • LunaMoon

    Hmm, maybe it’s from 6-6:59 (with my DS time)

    • Are you sure it’s the event Rockruff?

      • LunaMoon

        Yes, it has a red ball.

        • EarthenWarrior

          You should really consider neutering

          • LunaMoon

            I should really consider Poke-bribing.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Maybe you should check yo clock and everything
            I really hate military time

          • LunaMoon

            It says 5:54 for my 3DS and 4:54, so probably something going on.

        • Did you breed it? Is it the exact one you got from the event?

          • LunaMoon

            I’m pretty sure it’s the exact same one I got from the orange-blue mailman.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Isn’t it 5-5:59?

      • LunaMoon

        Yes but for some reason it’s still day, I’m in reverse world BTW.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Uh, maybe it’s because you changed the clock on your DS, and the time changes depending on the version also. If you’re using UM then it has to be 5-5:59 AM and US 5-5:59 PM

      • This could be it. Changing the time on your 3DS locks you out of time based events for two days

        • LunaMoon

          I didn’t change it for weeks if not months though, it was always like this since I bought the game.

  • LunaMoon

    Watch me hatch a shiny Cutiefly before my Rockruff or the sky listens to me.

  • LunaMoon

    Welp, dusk never came and instead when I returned it was night. Well, it appears dusk Lycanroc is not working in UM. I don’t know who to blame, the lousy sun or moon, or Rockruff.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Maybe you pissed off a Dialga

      • LunaMoon

        I am going to use Solgaleo and Lunala to destroy the real Sun.

        • EarthenWarrior

          When you suffocate and burn up when trying to escape the mesosphere can I have all your stuff?

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Are you sure you did it in the right time?

      • LunaMoon

        Yes, I went there at 5:00 pm. I constantly checked for the dusk; wasn’t there. After, I thought maybe I had to leave and return; didn’t work. I thought maybe it worked with the real time and not the 1-hour ahead time of my 3ds; it didn’t. Something went wrong and I have no clue what. All I know is I am considering trading my Rockruff for a Weedle.

        • Iron Hydride

          5pm real time or 5pm game time?

          • LunaMoon

            5pm game time, right now IRL it’s 5 but my 3DS is set at 6.

          • Iron Hydride

            Right. In Ultra Moon, to get Dusk in the reverse world you enter it at 5am in game time, which is 5pm irl time.

          • LunaMoon

            I did, but my 3DS is an hour fast, so that’s probably why it failed.

          • Iron Hydride

            You’ll need to reset your time then or wait until tomorrow :/

          • LunaMoon

            I want to reset it but then for a day I’ll not be allowed to go on Festival Plaza/GTS, at least I think 🙁

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          What’s your version? US or UM?

          • LunaMoon

            UM

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Welp that’s the problem, in UM you have to evolve in 5:00 AM, not PM

          • LunaMoon

            Ah. Well, I guess I have no choice, but to GTS hunt.

    • Iron Hydride

      I really don’t want to sound bitchy but can you keep your similar comments to comment chains? Just makes navigating the comments a bit easier, sorry if I’m coming across as a bit rude.

  • LunaMoon

    Sorry bout my spamming people, I deleted lots of comments of mine except for replies, didn’t meant to bother y’all. I’m not really that upset about not getting a dusk Lycanroc, but I’m certainly disappointed in the way things turned out.

    • It’s ok man, I do give ya

      I live by the leave no bridge burned policy (unless my plans for the day are burning bridges)

      • LunaMoon

        Thanks

    • Iron Hydride

      You’re not really bothering anyone and you didn’t have to delete anyone, I was just saying for future reference because it’s more convenient for others 😡

      • LunaMoon

        Ah of course, I just deleted just so it would clear it up.

      • Iron Hydride

        *delete any of them, not delete anyone

  • Well today has been a successful as I have finally revived an old idea that honestly had so much potential and I never really pushed it forward

    It’s a split evolution bear where as if its Physical Attack is higher it evolves into a Fighting type black bear, but if Special is higher than it evolves into a Psychic type bear based on Ursa minor. I also now added they evolve again into a Fighting/Dark and Psychic/I am not sure yet at a certain level

    • EarthenWarrior

      Sounds plausible, I feel something like this would be a night or day kinda scenario

      Kinda similar to my Pebble Pokemon that either becomes a golem if evolved normally or a lava beast if leveled up in a area with high geothermal energy

      • Hmm that could work too like how I did want an space observatory so maybe that could work into it

  • LunaMoon

    Well, good news! I got a Dusk Lycanroc; although it was someone else from GTS, at least this problem is resolved.

  • MK126

    So i just got my toxapex and i want it to learn baneful bunker… what should i remove:
    Water pulse, recover, toxic, posion jab?

    • Toxic
      It’s not necessary in game

      • Chaos

        Neither is Baneful Bunker if we’re being honest.

        • Soggy Auggy

          *makes a shady face and raises finger in agreement*

    • Soggy Auggy

      Keep Toxic it wears down the Totems… and it can combo with Venoshock and Merciless if that’s its ability

      Edit: Sorry that’s not answering the question… delete Poison Jab or Water Pulse

      • MK126

        No its got regenerator

        • Soggy

          I stand by my point (lol bc Toxapex is an urchin)

          • MK126

            So then leave recover/toxic…

          • Soggy

            And delete water pulse or poison jab…

          • MK126

            Deleted poison jab

  • Iron Hydride

    Hughest amount of SRs/hatches/encounters you’ve done for a shiny?

    • Chaos

      0

      I don’t shiny hunt.

      • Soggy Auggy

        You are on point tonight reading my mind! Yassssss!

        • Chaos

          Lol. I just jumped on for a couple of snide comments before heading to bed…

          • Soggy Auggy

            same tbh

    • Soggy Auggy

      1 lmao

      I think the only shiny I truly can’t live without is Minior but I don’t really shiny hunt if it happens it happens… but I don’t have time to soft reset

    • EarthenWarrior

      My longest I can recall is my hunt for a Shiny Sandygast I must’ve been at it for 2 days straight
      I even stole a 3ds charger to feed my battery so my time wouldn’t be in vain

      And my lowest might be my Shiny Hakamo-o where it only took….maybe like 20-42 SOS calls, I was trying to summon a Kommo-o

    • I don’t hunt them (unless you count when I tried to breed for Shiny Make Skitty in AS)

      But I still have two so far (and I plan to find at least 1 in US)

    • ShinyXatu

      I remember doing 2500-3500 encounters or something for my shiny Sawsbuck back in White. Along with my shiny Elgyem at around 100 eggs, those were the only hunts I ever committed to and succeeded with.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Jumping jeebus it’s gonna take a while to do a living dex…
    But that’ll be my goal and whatnot

    A region a week

    • Deerlia

      I have a living dex, sans poiple…

  • Soggy Auggy

    Has anyone seen “Unseelie Fairy” and Menacing? They’re my favorites and sometime this week I wanna challenge them to a battle with my outdated comp Pokémon lol

    Is the PJN chat still a thing?

  • Monkeyfuzz

    @BigGuyI:disqus will 6IV Snow Cloak female do?

    • EarthenWarrior

      I guess the abilities are very much useless on a play through

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I can keep going for a Slush Rush if you want, I doubt you use Hail though.

        • Soggy

          Hail gets kind of troublesome… I had this problem with A.Ninetales where she would be fine but the rest of my Pokémon would take chip damage

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I worked around that in game by only using it in the battle or just considering it a Handicap. It’s generally worth it once Aurora Veil is set up.

          • Soggy

            It’s a minor nitpick… I was mostly tired of not seeing the nice sky because of the ugly snow clouds.

            Btw Hail should be called “Snow”

          • Monkeyfuzz

            But snow wouldn’t hurt.

          • Soggy

            Neither would a sandstorm…

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Depends how fierce, the sand could scratch you. Snow your main threat is hypothermia or freezing.

          • Soggy

            I know hail is literally ice falling from the sky but I feel like it’s not representative of ice. Maybe a tornado? But not ice. Nobody likes hail. I’ve never wanted it to hail on Christmas. I don’t enjoy winter because of hail. HAIL NO

            Sorry I just hate hail

          • Monkeyfuzz

            So do I. Hail can actually be very dangerous and annoying/worrying to hear. I think hail fits ice just fine. It occurs with cold. Besides we have moves like Blizzard, Icy Wind, Powder Snow etc that represent snow for Ice types just fine.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Nevermind, I got a prefect Slush Rush 31/31/31/xx/31/31 female for you, with Spear.

  • Hmm well while people are here I still can’t think of what exactly I want as my final Pokémon.
    I already have Fire/Dark, Normal, Rock, Water/Ice and Grass/Fairy

    So what Pokémon type would fill a good 6th slot so any Pokémon you could suggest that can be found on Akala or Ula’Ula?

    • EarthenWarrior

      You could use a Fighting type

      • The only problem is which one? I could use Passimian, Machop or Jangmo-o (though Jangmo-o is super late)

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I can give you a Jangmo-O egg if you like.

          • Hmm that could work, but I think I would want to add it around Ula’Ula so that could work (it will take a few days till I get there though)

          • Monkeyfuzz

            You can just box the egg until you want it.

          • Ok then how soon can you get the egg? It doesn’t matter for natures, moves or anything just that it is Male will do (I want an even team of Male’s and Female’s and I already have 3 females)

          • Monkeyfuzz

            In a bit.

          • Ok I can wait (I’ll be around till probably 10:00 which is about 3 and half hours)

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It won’t take that long. Is a Heavy Ball one OK?

          • Yep that’s fine

    • MK126

      I would say instead of grass/fairy use bug/fairy and then grass/ghost

    • Chaos

      Talk about a massive Fighting weakness. You could try picking up a nice Psychic or Flying type

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Well he has a Fairy Type.

      • After this I kinda want to use Xatu

        I mean I want Pokémon I haven’t used yet and Xatu fits that bill

  • Soggy

    Okay so just to clear up any confusion… I’m August, the 20 year old gay baldy Flying type enthusiast from the army. NOT Sunniera 2.0 I know we have the same nickname but yeah I’m Soggy Auggy

    I was feeling self-conscious about my thicc neck so I changed my profile to be more simple and not so revealing lol

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You don’t need to feel self conscious. Also thanks for letting us know, I often can’t keep track of peoples’ name changes.

      • Soggy

        I agree with the name change thing and thanks… I’m not too self-conscious but that pic made me look like I have no chin 😂 so it was time for it to go

    • Fedex

      Your a cool guy from what I’ve seen don’t worry :]

      • Soggy

        Aw thank you so much! You’re cool too 🙂

    • Ultron

      I honestly didn’t see anything wrong with your selfie

  • EarthenWarrior

    -____- my Puggy isn’t doing good
    She seems shocked and quiet… A bunch of my brother’s friends came over and she was barking up a storm but now she’s submissive…

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Sorry to hear that. Maybe try playing some dance music, I heard somewhere it’s meant to calm them during fireworks so this may help here too.

      Also do you want the Snowshrew egg now?

      • EarthenWarrior

        I guess…I can’t leave her side….lets just make it quick

      Dat butt head

      • Fedex

        Haha of all the possible observations you could make!

        • Soggy

          They don’t call it Boober for nothing 👀

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well it’s from booby which is a species of bird

          • Soggy

            Nah it’s totally the head boobs

    • What I find funny, there’s a random Magmar walking on Wela Volcano and I sat for 10 minutes dying over it

      • Soggy

        That thing scared me I thought it was like a creepy glitch

        • I saw it and at first after laughing wondered

          Is this thing real? Or are my eyes playing tricks

      • Fedex

        Haha yes that cracked me up too. Out of all of the overworld mons I’ve seen so far that was the most unexpected and quite a cool addition by GF I must say.
        Really funny too xD

        • Just that one Pokémon that is like “Do do do, look I’m a walkin’ on a volcano”

          • Fedex

            Hahah yes! And I wonder what it was doing? Going for a sleep walk? xD
            Anyways I think this is a good indicator we’ll see more overworld pokes on gen switch!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Yay Magmar, the best of its’ line, weird looking though it is I like it. http://i0.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/001/228/282/8d8.gif

      • Why is Magmar, Loudred and Palpitoad all better looking than there evolutions

        • Oh and why does Magmar get some of the best battles in the show?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Because it’s cool. Also the first one was because it was up against Charizard and they had a rivalry.

          • Like Charizard v.s. Magmar (Awesome), Heracross v.s. Magmar (my second Favorite battle to date and second only to Marshadow v.s. Pikachu from I choose you) and Rockruff v.s. Magmar (just awesome)

            Magmar is by far one of my favorite Fire types just based on so many different qualities

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It’s a pretty versatile Pokemon in the anime. I think it just looks pretty weird yet cool so it gets used.

          • It seems like the perfect rival Pokémon like it will be perfect for those battles that are too hot for some to handle

          • Fedex

            Yh Magmar and Zard/Garys Magmar vs Heracross were great battles!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Maybe they thought uglier=more powerful?

          • Maybe. I mean Seisemetoad is cool, but just unpleasant to look at unlike Palpitoad which looks adorable

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Gangstertoad is, though I generally dislike the lines warty thing.

          • I always presumed they were like drums to reverberate sound waves

            But I do admit it makes them uglier

      • Fedex

        I gotta say I do like Magmortar :]
        What do you think of Evire?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It’s fine but I prefer Electabuzz. I mostly dislike Magmortars’ face and the random pink bits.

  • EarthenWarrior

    I can offer
    Steadfast Fast Ball Rockruff, Adamant Pancham and Impish Wimpod

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Anything is fine.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Thanks, I gotta get back to hugging Beatrice

        • Monkeyfuzz

          OK, hope it helps and hope she gets better.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Thanks, she only gets this way when she is at the vet, normally she’s rowdy gluttonous and a feisty but this time she’s quiet passive and shaking

            But then again people are over

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Does she respond when she sees other dogs on TV or something? My dogs are often captivated by other dogs on TV and will sit there watching it. Probably needs quiet time away from crowds where you can give her some calm attention.

          • EarthenWarrior

            No she doesn’t like strangers or other dogs

            She could’ve been spooked by Andy who is very tall and very ginger, but she’s sitting on my couch gnawing on a plush toy

            I was gonna put her crate in the living room but since they’ve in the basement (and drinking) they are talking loud and the VR volume is high

            She just needs a little nappy

        • Aww poor little doggo I hope she gets better soon

  • Fedex

    About to take on my next trial against everyones fav SM character 😛 LOL

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I detect sarcasm, so it must be Electric.

      • Fedex

        Got me :]
        Damn I hate him for the Plaza time waste he puts you through!

        • I hate how I can’t use the Battle Agency yet because I am not a high enough level

          • Fedex

            I haven’t even tried yet.
            Wait is it in the Plaza??

          • Yep if I’m correct its inside the castle

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Make sure to answer some questions wrong…

          • Fedex

            I wish I could but his trial has changed a little 😛

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh, that was my favourite part of it.

  • Oh boy, watching some more Katekyo Hitman Reborn after I don’t know how long

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      There are two things I wish for that series. The first is that they had ended the show like they did the manga. The second is that I wish the show was dubbed. I wanna say Funimation had steppes in to stop fan subs on behalf of the Japanese company that made it. So why not have them license the show for Western audiences?

      • I’m only on Episode 27, so I wouldn’t know. Also, do you have any people in mind that you think could play the characters for a dub? I only have one and that’s Yuri Lowenthal as Gokudera.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          It’s a fun show. Things really pick up later on as you go. I honestly never put much thought into it. I agree with you that he’d make a good fit for htheyhave you watched any of elDlive? I feel like a lot of the actors in that would be decent fits for a Reborn dub. Especially since elDlive is the series the manga creator of Reborn made/is making next

  • Hey is Kommonium Z post game?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Yes post-game.

      • Aww well, I guess Fightium Z and Dragonium Z will take on Scales (I believe this will be Jangmo-o’s name unless anyone has a better name)

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Honestly they will be more than enough. I’ve just started breeding it.

  • Fedex

    I lost to the electric trial.
    Wow well done GF it’s a well thought trial strategically very difficult and much more challenging than SM version.

    • hhaaahhaa wow game freak good on you for making the game slightly challenging oh my god gamefreak i love game freak have my babies gamefreak wow

      • Monkeyfuzz

        ???

        • She’s mocking fedex because she thinks Fedex thinks they can do no wrong

          I admit they do make flaws, but they don’t make a whole lot of mistakes

          • haahahahahahahah some of there games are entire mistakes

          • Well that’s entirely your opinion though? Just because he likes Gen.6 doesn’t mean you need to say stuff like that. Even if you believe last time you guys fought he started it, don’t try and mimic him, be the bigger person and let it go

            Sorry to nitpick just something about this really flared my emotions rn

          • no sh*t I know he has opinions.

            There is having opinions and then there is being such a blind fanboy that you refuse to apply your critical thinking skills and just praise a game company for doing their damn job

          • Fedex

            Or I choose to focus on the positives and share it with you all here.
            Sorry if that’s offending you :]

          • Yeah. F*ck me for demanding more out of my games. Honestly I can’t stand you. Your constant “positivity” only comes off as fake and patronizing. Reading your comments is like listening to an education show on PBS Kids or some sh*t. Oh there is no wrong in the world ever. Everything is amazing. And it’s your kind of “focusing on the positives” that enable game companies to f*ck the consumers over even more.

            Christ, I cant stand you. Can you just act like a person? You know it’s ok to dislike something right? It’s ok to feel negative emotions. What is happiness if you are always all upbeat and chipper. It’s fake and meaningless and everyone else here has bought into it

          • Fedex

            Ok so you’re coming on my post attacking me for being positive? That’s very nice of you.
            I have a lot of negative things to say but I don’t because there’s no need for me to. I come here to have a chill, a laugh with fellow junglers not to moan about my life or how bad the weather is.
            As for USUM I can only be critical once I’ve finished the whole game atm I’m playing it and want to enjoy it.
            I’m not sure why you dislike me so much and feel the need to write all that^
            Everyone knows me well now, I have a lot of friends. We all having fun here, you are also welcome to join us. Please drop it.

          • Vengz_

            Can you just lay off em, it’s his opinion let him enjoy the game and think positive about life

          • Fedex

            Thanks friend :]

          • Vengz_

            This is supposed to be a forum for general happenings,progress, communication so on so fourth so why the hate mongering? Like f*ck I’ve been coming to this site for years recently started posting and all this in fighting over games that a majority of us bought is tearing this site apart can we all just get along for f*cksake

          • Fedex

            Yeah he’s the coolest guy on here so fun and love his warrior like personality.
            You’re right this is a place to talk, chill have fun but these fights kill the peace.
            We’ve had a good 2 weeks or so since USUM release no one has started any fights and guess who comes to spoil the party star.
            Like im just posting about my trial progress and out of nowhere she comes and attacks me.
            I’m just ignoring her and focusing on myself but if she continues I’ll have to report her.
            Thanks for sorting everything out :]
            Are you playing USUM??

          • Vengz_

            Yea I got them for my birthday from my fiancé she got the dual pack for me and UM for herself we kinda play them Togather( I’m the better all around player since I’ve been playing it since RBY) but I’m on Akala at the moment due to work and the holiday I haven’t really played and the drag of seeing people fight on here killed my mood 🤦🏻‍♂️ Honestly my team atm is primarina, toucannon, lycandusk,flaffy,zoroark,Magby( just captured) oh that’s is ultra sun btw. In ultra moon I’m on Melemele with dartrix,trumbeak,inkay

          • TheNintendoChip

            If “doing their job” includes making their games challenging, then I disagree with you. Pokemon’s target age is like 10-12, isn’t it? At the very least, there’s a reason USUM mentions the age 11 so many times.
            We’ve clearly seen that GF doesn’t care about anyone except those who grew up w/Gen 1 and those who are about 10-12. Do they really need to make a challenging game for them? I don’t agree with their practice at all, but they really don’t need to be making a challenging game. Their “job” is to produce something enjoyable to their target demographic.
            In the same way you would say “if you want a story driven game, don’t play Pokemon”, I would say “if you want a challenging game, don’t play Pokemon”.
            I like that USUM has been surprisingly challenging. With that said, I don’t agree they should even exist at all, but given that they do, I’m glad I find them hard.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK but it seems a bit harsh and unnecessary to me.

          • I agree, I understand fights break out over opposite opinions, but it seems Star is trying to just pick a fight out of no where

          • Fedex

            Don’t worry just ignore her :]
            We’re too busy in Alola.
            How far are you now buddy?

          • Training in Wela Volcano Park

            Sadly Luna is a difficult one to train around Fletchling and Salandit

          • Fedex

            Oh cool. I guess you’re still seeing good old magmar going for his morning jogs 😛
            I’m at Ula Ula, just returned to Malie City!

          • Oh that’s cool

            Have you challenged the Gym yet?

          • Fedex

            Yes I did but only once.
            It really gave me a nostalgic trip to Kanto even if it was quite basic.
            I wish we go back to Kanto one day like a new Kanto

          • Fedex

            Well said :]

      • Fedex

        ????

      • I’m thinking this is done deliberately just to pick a fight

        Note I will try not to take sides, but I suggest you stop before this gets ugly. Let him think what he wants even if you don’t agree

    • Ultron

      Yeah, I’m glad there’s some challenge. Even some of the regular trainers are annoyingly difficult. Though, if I’m being honest, the difficulty was never one of my problems with regular SM.

      • Fedex

        Exactly! In gen 6 they wen back on the difficulty but SM with gen 7 especially USUM they’ve made the game more challenging which for me is more fun.
        This electric trial is ridiculously well thought out. I’m really impressed :]

  • Monkeyfuzz

    @TheLastKurusu:disqus the egg is ready. Also maybe call it clanger as it kind of reminds me of the Soup Dragon from The Clangers and, y’know, has 2 clanging moves.

    • Ok sorry I was eating dinner

      But if your hear I’m ready for it now

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I am. I’m online though not sure I have you added still.

        • I think we have and I’ll be on in a sec. do you mind getting a Fletchling in return?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Whatever is fine. I have deleted some FCs because I’m still keeping alot of old ones for Friend Safari which is still occasionally useful.

          • Ok my FC is

            Ign: Alex
            FC: 0748-2900-2536

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Looks like I do have you.

          • Cool Japanese Chimchar

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I had to find where I put the egg 😛

          • Some guy tried to trade me a level 100 shiny Arceus…

            I assume he didn’t want Fergosin the Mawile as he turned it down

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, I don’t understand why they would bother unless they confused you with someone else. Anyway hope the Jangmo-O helps 🙂

          • It will I bet

            Such a powerful ally to add

    My G wrecked the Totem mon.
    No one beats me twice 👊
    Prop to GF for the improvements :]

    • MK126

      Totem-maru was a pain to beat

      • Fedex

        Oh man tell me about it.
        How many tries did it take you?

        • MK126

          One but i had to plan my attack correctly. I had to use flame charge on my incineroar a few times to outspeed spikey sheild. What hurt me to was Skarmory laid its entry hazard so it made it worse

  • EarthenWarrior

    It’s all good, Bea’s fast asleep and snuggling with her lamby
    I swear these dog will be the death of me

  • Monkeyfuzz

    I feel really quite unwell right now. Have headache and my muscles and joints hurt. I feel like I get all the sickness going round, probably because people cough and sneeze everywhere without caring about anyone else -_- Also think I hallucinated a large black wolf and a person walking across the road dressed in black medieval robes whilst I was half asleep earlier which was weird. Anyway might watch some One Piece and go to sleep now I think. On a side note I have only Friend Ball Charmander to get and I’ll have all 8 new combos for it.

      Oh sorry to hear. Make sure to take some medicine/tablets.
      It took me a week to get back to my normal self :]

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I usually try not to take any but I think I’ll have to. Hope I have some without Caffeine in.

    • How I feel everyday. No, but seriously, I hope you feel better. Also, I’m curious, how far are you in One Piece?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Thanks. I’ve just got to Luffy VS Caeser on Punk Hazard. I have read up until Dressrosa and Gear 4th VS Doflamingo but need to do alot of catching up on both.

    • Sorry about that my friend 🙁

      But still thank you for Clanger

    • EarthenWarrior

      I hate that people everywhere have little to no consideration towards anybody but themselves

  • Oh thanks again Monkeyfuzz for the egg

    I definetly will use Clanger as a good team member

    • Monkeyfuzz

      That’s OK, btw it is built as a special attacker so you might want to give it Focus Blast, Clanging Scales, Flash Cannon and maybe Flamethrower.

      • Ok sounds good

        I definetly could use a Special user
        With Lycanroc, Incineroar and Lopunny being physical

        Dewgong being Special

        And Shiinotic being Defensive

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Yeah I remembered those first 3 so thought it would be best.

    I made this campaign for net neutrality, please save my cute little friend!
    I did the artwork for it, but please, share as far as you like, i want my little friend to make a difference in the world~

    • I was about to ask can I share this with others?

      Would you like me to use your name when I credit It? If so what’s your Instagram name?

      • If your ok with it, I’ll just update the post at a later time

        • Deerlia

          Oki, can you provide a copy of the link to it?

          • Oh I did

            I tracked down Star’s link to it

            Sadly only negative feedback as Amino blocked it and my Instagram followers have blown by it completely as it has yet to get even 1 like or comment

          • Deerlia

            What is amino anyways?

          • An app where people can come to chat about basically whatever they want

      • Deerlia

        Yes, use my name, Deerlia Deerling.

    • I have spread the word to Amino and Instagram

      If I can I also hope to try and spread it further than even that

    • EarthenWarrior

      I have a very negative view on the net neutrality I truly feel that no matter what we do or how many people vote against it the FCC will just rig it or do something to get their way

      • I hope we can beat them this time

        Especially cause if I lose this site, I will go crazy (I wasn’t here for two days once and I literally was on the verge of a breakdown)

        • EarthenWarrior

          True, seriously you guys are literally my only friends, and if PJN goes down with Disqus AND Discord

          That’s it game over, I’m done, bullet in the temple,

      • LunaMoon

        Oh yeah I heard about that. What’s going on about Net Neutrality?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Basically the Internet is going to get screwed big time
          People can’t have independent sites and Internet providers have the power to pick and choose what they can let you do

          So yeah utterly terrifying

          • I’d murder entire countries to keep my Jungle safe for all

          • EarthenWarrior

            I’d murder for pretty much anything

          • I’d murder Donald Trump and whoever thought this ass-backwards plan was a good idea

          • No one should control the internet

            I guarentee Twitter will not have to pay to keep themselves up because of the Donald Dump himself

          • Ajait Pai

          • LunaMoon

            Wow that’s such a jerk move.

      • Deerlia

        With 10 million + people glaring at them?
        i promise you some nutjob will try to kill the FCC chairman before it happens, or hackers will find a loophole and exploit them to make a point.

        • EarthenWarrior

          I just don’t understand anything anymore

          Just tell what do I have to do so everything doesn’t change and I won’t lose you guys

          But even if things seem right I just know something will go wrong

  • Seraph used Wood Hammer

    Why does Pokejungle feel so empty nowadays….
    It just feels like the site is now an empty shell of its former self.. it’s kinda depressing…. I think I’m post less frequently. Maybe just to post here and there… otherwise … it’s kinda depresing

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      *im gonna

    • Well, everyone here is at each other’s throats, so maybe that’s why.

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        I don’t think its even that… it just feels like… a ghost town… and not the good kind either

        • Where’s the sheriff when you need him?

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Back in the stone age. It’s hard to find reliable cavemen these days

            I don’t think that’s it either

    • EarthenWarrior

      It’s the holiday season, it’s a melancholy feeling but we just gotta stay united

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        True true

    • Yeah and the worst part in a few weeks we might lose each other due to this stupid net neutrality

    • TheNintendoChip

      Personally, I’ve got a lot of stuff in my life. Getting reorganized from Thanksgiving break, finals coming soon, other personal stuff, etc.

    • Dicie

      Hype for USUM wasn’t what it usually is so I guess it died down quickly. There’s also not much to talk about or speculate on, but I expect things to pick up around Pokemon Switch time. Until then… :/

    • Josh Omega

      Give it time once they officially reveal the switch games titles and everything things will pick up. I do wonder will the starter evos leak out super early again like last year

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      There aren’t any rumours to speculate and USUM aren’t as big compared to XY, SM and ORAS regarding new content soo

  • Oh wow real d*ck move on their part

    Amino hid my comment about Net neutrality…

    • EarthenWarrior

      See, they’re shadowing the resistance to get their way

  • EarthenWarrior

    Tonight has been nerve racking…I just want to sleep and have everything be normal in the morning

  • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

    Well with all the negativity going around with Net Neutrality, at least I can be happy with 100% proof I’m getting a PS4 for Christmas! So, my mom got $350 credit for Fingerhut and one time my mom went on Fingerhut on my phone because she left her phone home, and my mom never signs out of things unless it’s a bank account or something, I refuse to check on the website in case my mom will be able to tell, but Fingerhut ads usually have things you’ve recently looked at and I got this ad today https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e64b172fb2c5bea9b183cc20bbf5345d1c544157d8a58eda4392e7ce16723a1a.png


  • This is pretty good

  • Ultron

    It’s super lame that they chose probably the lamest Kanto gym to emulate in the Malie City gym and it doesn’t even change to the other ones… :/

    • Fedex

      it’s like they’re intentionally teasing up

      • Ultron

        2018 Kanto Remakes on the Switch

        • Fedex

          I hope one day they remake kanto like a new game years later but I guess it would be a challenge to make something good from it

          • Maybe use the region and everything in it, but rework a story relating to Team Rocket

            Maybe steal some of it from the adventures Manga

    • I haven’t gotten to it yet, but I guess it’s hinting to something

      But I only can think of two things that it would hint to
      Switch is a Kanto region game or Gyms return in Switch

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      It’s super lame that the first time you go in there only one person in the gym has a Pokemon from Kanto………Not sure about later times, but I don’t think it’s much better. How in the world can it be a “Kantonian gym” if most of the Pokemon they use are from other regions?

      • Ultron

        Not to mention they didn’t even use remix of the Kanto battle themes…not even a gym leader one.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I went there again today. Only difference was that Ryuki was there.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Laaaaaame

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Just baseless spitballing here, but it could be that the Kantonian Gym is a parallel to how Hawaiians try to emulate Japanese culture in some of their tourist attractions: that they do a very poor job of it. My reasoning behind this assertion, I ate half a bag of candy.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Maybe…..but idk. I’ve never been one to call GF lazy for the sake of calling them lazy. they usually have a plan for things and when it doesn’t go the way fans want they start pulling out the word “lazy”. This time however I’d say maybe they were a tiny bit lazy. They went out of their way to build an entire building, but when it came to any of the content inside they stopped short. I think they just didn’t care enough and that’s what happened. Which is a shame as it could have been a very cool facility.

  • A thought just hit me

    This site has ties to Disqus so wouldn’t that protect this site? Or would all of Disqus also get swallowed whole by the matter?

    And another thought, would the Discord board still be up? As it is more an app than a site…

    Regardless its still not ok. But if this site somehow could be kept safe it would make me much happier

    • Ultron

      Dismantling Net Neutrality doesn’t necessarily mean pokejungle will be blocked or anything. Theoretically, It could be by your internet provider if they so wish, but I’m not sure why they would. Either way, getting rid of neutrality is disgusting

    • Daedardus

      It won’t go that way fast. What will most likely happen is throttling of high bandwidth streaming websites like Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime,… unless you upgrade your plan to a ‘high speed unlimited’ plan for $20/month more. ISPs are shitty, but they won’t make everything pay per piece suddenly, then they would be dead lol.

  • LunaMoon

    Wait, would all websites and users, no matter which country be in danger if net neutrality would be repealed?

    • Daedardus

      No. Doesn’t make it any less shitty.

      • Butter Geek

        I mean, other countries would probably have something simmilar happening soon after it works in the States

        • Iron Hydride

          You do realise that most countries with a half decent government would realise that their people wouldn’t like this, right?

          • Butter Geek

            Well not all countries have a half decent government

          • InfinityD4

            I would say 98% don’t. But I may be Biased Considering I’m American and Am in a State of Constantly being Pissed off by Life in General

          • Iron Hydride

            Most of those countries would try to rid of net neutrality without seeing America do it lol

        • InfinityD4

          It apparently is already a thing in New Zealand

      • LunaMoon

        Welp I Hope it doesn’t get repealed.

    • No just the U.S.

      If your in Europe or Asia or any other continent than you have no worries on the matter

      Despite this some of the members off the top of my head that are at risk are: Starstorm, Seraph, Alex, Earthen, The ultra Monster, Deerlia (I’m pretty sure) and myself to name a few

      • EarthenWarrior

        *Whimpers*

      • Josh Omega

        Will effect me too. Freaking FCC trying to screw with our internet. Well that one guy mainly but whatever

      • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

        I’ll be affected as well, unfortunately

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I as well.

  • EarthenWarrior

    I can’t tell if I should indulge in Cyber Monday…
    With the way things have been going, my basement dismantled just so my brother can play VR, my electronics having battery and charging issues

    I just don’t feel as materialistic as I used to be, but at the same time I have a void I want to fill with things in a vain attempt to feel happy

    • You should go on a trip somewhere. It’s always nice to have a change of scenery.

      Well, after winter because snow is super rad

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Seconded. The one thing that sucks going to University in Florida that there aren’t really seasons or snow. Can’t wait to go back home for winter break.

    • Iron Hydride

      Go to a desert or a mountain

      No seriously I feel you’d like a trip to one of those places, it feels very you

  • zeldaoreonerd

    Just hit 4750 srs for Poipole. I’ve done 4200 srs without the charm and 550 with it. Hopefully I get the little guy within the next day or two!

  • Wow, I am legit dying rn from how spicy the chicken patty I just ate was

    • EarthenWarrior

      Can’t be worse than the horrifically painful intestinal distress I dealt with last night

      Also this stupid Snowshrew isn’t hatching correctly, nearly a box and a half and I still don’t have a male 5iv Slush Rush Snowshrew

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Where did you get it from? I like spicy food so I may be interested.

  • Iron Hydride

    Your biggest hope for a Gen 8 type combo?

    Poison/Fairy x100 for me tbh

    • EarthenWarrior

      Ground/Fighting….20 god damn years…and they haven’t used this combination……

      It won’t be perfect….weaknesses to water, grass, ice, flying, psychic and fairy but I don’t care…

      It’s the two types I live and breathe

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        A nice attacker :3

        • Iron Hydride

          You know GameFreak will make it slow as hell and also trial

          • Iron Hydride

            *frail

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            So it’ll be regional crabominable… crap

      • Sunniera 2.0

        They are saving the best for last!

        • Butter Geek

          Or for never!

    • Dragon/Fairy that isn’t a mega

    • Butter Geek

      Electric/Dragon that’s not a Mega/Legendary
      Electric/Dark
      And most of all
      Fairy/Fighting

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Ghost/bug that isn’t shednja

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Ice/Fire or Fire/Ice. One of the two.

      • Iron Hydride

        Covering all those bases I see 👀

        • Sunniera 2.0

          All the ones that matter.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Finally my Snowshrew is ready now I must make the ultimate decision….do I nickname it Snowslash now or just have it stay Sandslash

    Unless I nickname it Snowshrew now and when it evolves I trade it back to nickname it Snowslash

    • I’d say Snowslash

      • EarthenWarrior

        i already named it Snowshrew but when i get the ice stone in Po town i’ll pop it back to ultra sun and change it to Snowslash

        • Butter Geek

          Why trade it back to US?

          • EarthenWarrior

            you dumbo i’m giving it right back because i want the name to match the evolution

        • You can’t rename traded Pokémon tho

    • Butter Geek

      You get to name rater before you get an Ice Stone (I’m almost sure)

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You re-bred it? I gave you a perfect one…

      • EarthenWarrior

        it was female…

        • Monkeyfuzz

          You asked for a female. Also why does that matter?

          • EarthenWarrior

            i asked for female only to change the egg moves up, i didn’t want you to do anything more for me

            and i’ve made it very clear i am a pokemon sexist

  • It really bugs me they still call Alolan Sandslash… sand slash.

    Why would they ever call it that

    • Butter Geek

      You’re right, but if they made it its own mon, it wouldn’t seem right either

    • Iron Hydride

      Because it’s part of the species known as Sandslash, even if the subspecies doesn’t live in sand anymore.

      • Well I know that but like. Someone who has only lived in Alola their whole life wouldn’t call it Sandslash.

        I know it’s just so players don’t think it’s a new mon or whatever but still

        • Iron Hydride

          Elephant hawk-moths are called elephant hawk-moths even though the adult moth has nothing to do with elephants. People will call things the same even if the name is now redundant for the sake of consistency.

  • Iron Hydride

    I really want to know what all the other regional variants are traditionally in Alola, since we know AloPix is Keokeo and Alochu is Hodad

    • Seraph used Wood Hammer

      Keokeo sounds interesting
      Hoooooooooooooooodayd

    • Butter Geek

      Do this names mean something in Hawaiian?

      • Iron Hydride

        Ke’oke’o is Hawaiian for white

      • Iron Hydride

        Hodad is a slang term which is actually Spanish iirc which refers to a non surfer who acts like a surfer – Alolan Raichu doesn’t actually surf, it imitates surfing

  • Butter Geek

    I don’t really get why gallade isn’t fairy/fighting

    • Chaos

      Because it has nothing fairy about it.

    • Iron Hydride

      Gardevoir is spiritual and is based on a mage. Along with this, it’s guardian angel based (this point is far more subjective though)

      Gallade drops all of this and becomes a Knight. A trained fighter that uses their skills to protect. Hence, why it loses Fairy for Fighting.

      Also no Pokémon had Fairy replace one of their types, excluding normal.

      • Butter Geek

        But, like wouldn’t loosing Psychic make much more sense? Psychic is much more mage related. And also Fairy/Fighting works better for a knight that Psychic/Fairy.

        • Iron Hydride

          No and no

          Psychic has very little ties to traditional magic in Pokémon. It’s all stage magic based, along with genuine Psychic powers (Gallade is an empath) and things related to the cosmos.

          Why would fairy make sense for knight? Fighting covers that by itself

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            Isn’t the whole empath thing thrown around between several mons of various types? Marshadow for example can sense emotion

          • Iron Hydride

            Marshadow does it by entering people’s shadows (ghost based empathy) and Lucario does it through aura (which is either fighting based or typeless). Ralts line are Psychic empaths.

          • Seraph used Wood Hammer

            True true
            I feel like there’s another mon who does it

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Sunniera 2.0 is a technological empath. Hacks into your accounts, monitors your daily activities, and infers what you are feeling at that moment.

          • Butter Geek

            Delphox is a mage/Witch and it’s psychic

          • Iron Hydride

            Delphox is based on the mage stereotype but actually fits more into the role of a seer – which is more Psychic. It doesn’t perform anything that’s pure magical. It also needed to be Psychic because Fighting/Fairy/Dark isn’t a triangle. Fighting/Dark/Psychic is.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Because prior to the fairy bullshite
      Ralts Kirlia and Gardevoir where pure psychic

      Male Kirlia exposed to a Dawn Stone become Gallade which gained Fighting ergo Psychic/Fighting

      Now that they are retconned to Psychic Fairy there is no reason the secondary fairy typing should transition towards Gallade who was already Psychic/Fighting to begin and end with

      the prime rule is that pokemon do not shift their primary type the only cases of this happening are to Azuril, Swablu and Fletchling which are all normal types but this rarity does not mean any ol pokemon can get away with it

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Uh why would it lose its primary typing?

      And Fairy barely has any phisical attacks so it won’t get benefited from it

  • Butter Geek

    I’m slowly learning Pokemon Essentials…ugh my brain…

    • Iron Hydride

      What for?

      • Butter Geek

        My fan game that I decided to make half a year ago. That’s what’s all the fakemon I made are for.

  • Iron Hydride

    Is there any lore in Pokémon you want to see expanded?

    I want a larger explanation on aura tbh

    • I’d like to see that. I’d also like to see backstories for the main villains. Btw, Aura is actually a main concept in my series.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I want more information on Ultra Space
      If i may allow my case the transversing into different dimensions kinda tore pokemon lore a new one

      not only do these pocket dimensions hold pokemon of varying species but some actually contain human-like lifeforms. i need to know if they’re true humans or interdimensional

    • Josh Omega

      Megas in all honesty. I hate how they seem to have dropped it in favor of z moves

      • EarthenWarrior

        a better question is how the majority of them go crazy from it

        • Josh Omega

          That is a good question. Expand on having to have a strong bond with a Pokémon to preform mega evolution as well. You shouldn’t be able to mega evolve a Pokémon you just got. Looking at you lucario in pokemon x and y

          • EarthenWarrior

            Garchomp: Its arms and wings melted into something like scythes. Mad with rage, it rampages on and on.

            Tyranitar: Due to the colossal power poured into it, this Pokémon’s back split right open. Its destructive instincts are the only thing keeping it moving.

            Scizor: It stores the excess energy from Mega Evolution, so after a long time passes, its body starts to melt.

            Acerodactyl: It will attack anything that moves. Mega Evolution is a burden on its body, so it’s incredibly irritated.

            So were we fed a bunch of lies that Mega Evolution unlocks true untold power through our united bonds? or that a surge of dominate traits and abilities overwhelm our pokemon and go nuts

          • Josh Omega

            That is so weird. I love the theory that the rotom fed comes up with screwed up entries to mess with you honestly lol

    • Butter Geek

      Why are certain mons in the Ultra Space and why are there more likely to be shiny? And is Ultra Space in the end an alternate dimension if the Rotomdex says it’s a certain distance from the Altar?

  • Iron Hydride

    We could see our first Gen 8 mon as soon as February and that really excited me tbh

    • Josh Omega

      Let’s just hope people don’t get their hopes up too much with the starters this time in particular if the fire starts out a qaudruped. I was personally fooled by both tepig and fennekin staying that way and they both went bipedal. Didn’t make that same mistake with litten

      • Josh Omega

        That said I am super excited to see the first gen 8 pokemon!

      • Butter Geek

        I imagine a small horse that Evolves into a Fire/Fairy Bipedal Unicorn

        • Josh Omega

          I can totally see that happening and just imagine the rage from the community at it lol that said I would prefer a quad fire/fairy Pegasus but it’s most likely not happening lol

          • EarthenWarrior

            I just want Toroast the fire bull calf
            the evolution can either be bi or quad but as long as its fire/rock fire/ground, fire/fighting or the rare pure fire

          • Josh Omega

            I would love a bipedal bull Pokémon since it would be a Minotaur. Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Greek mythology. obviously this should tell you hydriegon is my favorite pseudo legend

          • EarthenWarrior

            y’know Hydreigon isn’t directly linked to Cerberus right?

          • Josh Omega

            Hyriegon is a hydra though? That said a Cerberus Pokémon would be interesting!

          • EarthenWarrior

            ….how foolish of me

          • Josh Omega

            All this talk of Greek mythology makes me really want a region inspired by Greece somehow. The legendary trio could totally be inspired by Zeus hades and Poseidon

          • EarthenWarrior

            just don’t do the whole family tree…

          • Josh Omega

            Oh I agree that would be overboard lol make the final mythical be based on Kronos though since he is their father in the mythology.

          • Butter Geek

            I’d imagine the rest of the Olimpians and the main Titans being the Ultra Beasts of that gen, with the Sea-Sky-Afterlife trio being mascots, while still being those pantheon mons (like Solgaleo/Lunala are mascots and still UBs)

          • Josh Omega

            Want to add that I would prefer fire/ground from the types you listed. Make it what Emboar should have been.

          • EarthenWarrior

            yeah no, i like Emboar being Fire/Fighting

            The line is Toroast-Triggore-Eruptoro

            Toroast rough and rowdy with the ability to blow embers from its snout

            Triggore easily agitated and the more heat built up makes it more active

            Eruptoro wild and always frustrated, it becomes so angry its whole body engulfs with flames and it rampages

            i feel Ground kinda attributes to its hardy nature (not because of lava in any way) that’s why i felt pure fire made the most sense,

  • Govnah Dex

    I think Blaziken should of been Fire/Flying

    • Idk, Fire Chicken just screams “Fighting”

    • Iron Hydride

      Primarina should be Water, Decidueye should be Grass/Flying, and Incineroar should’ve been Fire/Fighting

      • I would say that they should maybe introduce 3rd types, but that would probably break the game even more

      • Josh Omega

        I say fire/dark really fits incineroar. Yes it’s a wrestler Pokémon but it’s a heel wrestler which are famous for winning by any means necessary. Dirty fighting, raking the eyes, low blows, sucker punch( why doesn’t incineroar learn it is beyond my guess)

      • Chaos

        They all should have stayed pure type

      • Iron Hydride

        Guys me and Gov are joking lol

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Every fire starter should’ve been fire/fighting

      • Soggy

        At first I FELT VERY ATTACKED that Deci wasn’t Grass/Flying (Flying is my favorite type) but now that it’s been a while I’m glad it’s Ghost bc Grass/Flying is a rough type

    • Josh Omega

      But chickens can’t fly. Well they can but not super far

    • EarthenWarrior

      Cockfighting

    • Butter Geek

      Roosters are better at Fighting than at Flying

      • Govnah Dex

        you’re wrong

  • Iron Hydride

    Would you rather have Gen 8 introduce Megas but only from your least favorite Gen, or Z-Moves from your favorite Gen?

    • Megas

      Mega Kalos starters… except Greninja

      • Iron Hydride

        Mega Ash Greninja with an abiltiy that lets it use Z-Moves

    • EarthenWarrior

      That already happened in ORAS

      • Iron Hydride

        What? ORAS added a Mega of every Gen lol

        • EarthenWarrior

          I mean they gave megas of my least favorite gen aka Hoenn

          • Iron Hydride

            I meant if they gave only your least favorite Gen Megas

          • EarthenWarrior

            forget it, its just easier to say i hated 95% of the megas introduced in ORAS

          • Iron Hydride

            Did you already hate the Pokémon or did you actually hate the Megas

          • EarthenWarrior

            50 50
            they caused me literally nothing but trouble

    • Josh Omega

      Megas. I really do not like z moves. And I honestly really don’t hate any gen of Pokémon just dislike some Pokémon from each gen. Looking at you bidoof

    • Chaos

      Megas from Johto? I guess i could live with that…

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Z-Moves, Unova needs a little bit more love :3

    • Soggy

      I’m really over Megas so I’d say more Z-moves. Even if some are exclusives.

      P.S. Hi bae

    • Ultron

      Megas

  • Chaos

    Oh man, OU has wisened up to Stakataka shenanigans, it’s harder to play it now that literally everything carries a Fighting or Ground type move…

  • EarthenWarrior

    Bored…so i’m watching the first 2 episodes of the Big Hero 6 series, gotta say pretty good, not patronizing or lacking in decent animation and jokes

    Nothing short of quality Man of Action animation

  • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

    Is Switch online still free? I can’t get on Splatoon for some reason

    • ShinyXatu

      Yeah, payment starts sometime in early 2018 so it couldn’t have anything to do with that.

      • EarthenWarrior

        oy….another monthly fee
        lets see
        i gotta shell 300 for insurance
        wow subscription
        pokebank

        • ShinyXatu

          Pokebank is $5 for 12 months, I hope you’re not complaining about that.

          • Iron Hydride

            ‘HOW COULD I POSSIBLY MAKE 40 CENTS IN A MONTH :p

          • steal

          • EarthenWarrior

            no i’m not but it all adds up, and my job screws me out of decent wages
            they barely make me work 20 hours

      • Butter Geek

        How much will it be?

        • ShinyXatu

          I’m pretty sure it’s $20 for a year or something like that.

          • Butter Geek

            That’s frickin cheap

      • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

        Ok thanks, I was in a class so I didn’t see this until now

    • Yes. It’s either down for maintenance or your internet is being dumb

      • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

        Probably my internet, it sucks, but it works for all my siblings iPads at the same time (that’s like 5) so I think it might be my Switch

  • ShinyXatu

    I’m really in the mood for a Nintendo Direct…if they don’t do one in December I’ll be both surprised and disappointed. They always give me something to look forward to, and this next one will be a big deal because it’ll reveal some 2018 games! Predictions anyone?

    • EarthenWarrior

      my biggest hopes and dreams are

      Pokemon VIII
      Smash Switch
      The possibilities of a Zelda Link’s Awakening remake on 3DS (i’m not giving up on the switch yet)
      Virtual Consoles including titles from the Gamecube and some N64, hell even some Wii titles i have been craving a replay of Skyward Sword lately
      and dat’s all i can think of right now

      • EarthenWarrior

        Oh and Pikmin 4

        • I feel like that sums up Pikmin 4 perfectly

          “Oh and Pikmin 4”

          • EarthenWarrior

            Who don’t like some Pikmin
            That feeling when you first get 100 Pikmin and absolutely destroy a Bulborb and feel so powerful

          • I’ve never played a Pikmin game, I’ve only seen Chuggaconroy’s series on Pikmin 3. I really want a 4th one tho

          • EarthenWarrior

            you should totally pick up Pikmin 1

            it really isn’t hard and the first one is so….pure

    • Ultron

      Animal crossing

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      If Pkm is really coming in 2018 then we MAY get a teaser for it. And maybe FE too if they haven’t forgotten about it yet.

  • Butter Geek

    Had an idea for a cool ability
    Corruption
    The Pokemon’s allies’ Dark type moves get a damage boost and Normal type moves turn into Dark type moves

    • Hmmm…. maybe it would work better as a dark type Pixilate

      • Iron Hydride

        Agree, and change the name to ‘Villanize’ because it fits in with Normalize and Galvanize

  • Iron Hydride

    I think next Gen is going to be another Japanese based region tbh, based on Ryuki’s general existence. But at the same time I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s just a random irrelevant character made because they needed a dragon specialist

    • Sunniera 2.0

      They needed a Dragon specialist, but there was supposedly no need for an Ice specialist.

      • Iron Hydride

        Sina

      • Sina.

        • Sunniera 2.0

          Greninja’d by Iron Hydride. I don’t know why she didn’t leave that much of an impression on me. Maybe the Exeggutor shirt was too distracting.

          • I wasn’t greninja’d

            I saw his comment but I just really wanted to Hammer it in because people don’t seem to understand it

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Hammer. Dragon Hammer. Alola Exeggutor…It all comes together.

        • Butter Geek

          Then why did they make Faba a type specialist? They didn’t have to

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Being a type specialist isn’t like a noble title or something, it just characters who just happens to use only the same type of Pkm. And there can be two type specialist in the same region of the same type, just look at Iris or Draysne or Lance and that blue dressed woman.

          • Because GameFreak

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Another Japanese based region wouldn’t be farfetched like:

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/4c6c35ef811fc980451f0ccfaa9f08a7852cffd808db62e5d826ed53a0835ab6.png

      We could use the place between Hoenn and Johto cuz it has interesting geography. And Ryuki doesn’t have a more prominent role in USUM? Cuz he appears in the Kanto gym so I thought he had one

      • Sunniera 2.0

        That would work. But I wouldn’t like it. We will have had 4 years straight of warm regions: ORAS, SM, & USUM. I would prefer this time around we have a colder region-part of the reason I would be excited for a China inspired region if they included the Himalayan mountains which are located in the periphery of the country-because I want a generation with a lot of new-and hopefully strong-Ice Type Pokémon. Then after the Gen 8 game(s) we can have DP or Platinum remake(s) and after that I don’t really have any wishes as to what Gamefreak should do.

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Uh, I’d find that place to be more climate mixed than cold, but yeah, I kinda also want a cold region tbh, maybe something that takes place in Canada or Europe :0

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Sorry if I wan’t clear about my preference for China in my reply-I wanted to keep it short. I meant that if they did based a region off that country with the Himalayan Mountains included-tallest mountain range in the world-then there would hopefully be a greater proportion of Ice types introduced among the new Pokémon. Well if there is any deeper meaning to the tweets about their travel to Germany, we might be getting a Germany-based region for Gen 8.

    Post naga meta im almost at 1800 points with minimal effort. If I really try I’ll easily break into 1900+

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Are you using Naga in this post-naga meta? I feel compelled to ask because of how you worded your statement.

      • Fedex

        No Naganadel is banned. I was using a pretty decent team including Naga previously but it got banned so the team above that I was using is a sticky web offence. One of my favs :]

        • Sunniera 2.0

          Wait…which tier is this? Did it get banned to Ubers?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Lit says OU Gen 7
            That tier is just the same crap over and over and over

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Didn’t see that. Thanks for pointing it out.

          • Fedex

            I’m coming for you UU RU NU PU all of them tiers

          • EarthenWarrior

            Oh just knock it off already

    • EarthenWarrior

      I just don’t understand how anyone can accumulate that kind of rating
      My highest was 1.5k

      • Sunniera 2.0

        That is because Fedex isn’t any one person. Fedex is a bot.

        • EarthenWarrior

          -___- makes me feel worthless
          I battle every day for over two years and my rating is always piss poor

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Well from what I have seen, you have tried to uncompromisingly fight competitively with the Pokémon the Pokémon that you like-for two years as well. I feel that is a great accomplishment in itself.

          • EarthenWarrior

            What’s the point is you lose 75-80% of the time, always being under heel by literally everything because that’s how I feel, never an instance where I have control or confidence of the situation

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        What if he was using legends 👀

        • EarthenWarrior

          Probably was and most likely the reason why my rank is crap… But why should it matter it’s not like I’m meant to be prosperous or happy

    • MenacingCascoon

      Ooooh. A good battler. Good job! You deserve that high rank. It’s nice hearing about good battlers here. Do you ever battle in game?

      • Fedex

        Thank you friend :]
        I haven’t in a long time.
        Need to make some competitive mons!

  • Iron Hydride

    186 resets for Pheromosa and I’m getting bored, how do people do this lol

    • Sunniera 2.0

      They don’t. They outsource to India and China.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      By doing another thing they like while they do this like listening to music, watching a stream :p

    • EarthenWarrior

      Most jerks have two copies and two 3DSs and I think there’s a way you can flash reset the game (or is it just in editing)

      • Iron Hydride

        You don’t know about soft resets? You’re scrubbier than I thought

        • EarthenWarrior

          -__- just blow after blow today…
          I feel like I should just dump all my stuff in a furnace and just drop off the face of the planet

  • Ok I want a challenge

    Give me a team of 6 fully evolved Pokémon to use and I will use them on OU Showdown (only fully evolved, so no Magikarp or Pikachu)

      Basculin
      Delibird

      You said ‘challenge’ so I made it challenging for you :p

      • zeldaoreonerd

        Pineco evolves into Forretress though

      • Has to be Foretress though

        I said fully evolved

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Oh, I thought both were stand alone :I

  • EarthenWarrior
  • Do Foretress learn any priority moves?

    • EarthenWarrior

      ….it’s a forretress…its rapid spin, spikes/TSpike, stealth rock, explosion/Volt Switch

      • Damn! I wanted to try a Sturdy, Pain Split, priority set.

        I guess rest Lum berry will work too

        • MenacingCascoon

          No way Jose. Just rocky helmet/ lefties. Hazards+ rapid spin and volt switch

        • Iron Hydride

          Fortress isn’t strong enough to kill after that sort of pain split

  • Hmm use Kuppo’s suggestion first or earthen’s?

  • Hey Guys!!!!!!! I just beat a good OU team with my Challenge Team!!!
    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ou-665610288

    I highly believe Stunfisk is the MVP

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Who you actually managed to win even with my crappy team :O

  • Iron Hydride

    Least favorite fossil?

    • Archen, its the only one I actually don’t like

    • ShinyXatu

      I guess Lileep because I never use it.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Cradily but I like them all anyways :3

    • Soggy

      Tirtouga and Carracosta. I feel like they aren’t as creative as the other fossils. Why choose a prototurtle when there’s plenty of better prehistoric animals to base a Pokémon on?

      Plus a turtle vs an archaeopteryx? Girl.

    • EarthenWarrior

      It’s hard to say but Archen

      • Iron Hydride

        I’d of guessed Cradily tbh

        • EarthenWarrior

          It’s a soft maybe
          Fossils are second nature to me, I kinda like Archen but never Archeops

    • Chaos

      Probably Shieldon/Bastiodon

    • Butter Geek

      The weird rock plants I guess

  • ShinyXatu

    An interesting update to my wishes for a Direct…I completely forgot about the Game Awards! Nintendo announced that they’ll be giving five sweepstakes winners the opportunity to attend. They’re definitely going to announce something, and I personally think it’s the place for Smash Bros. Maybe they’ll also announce when their next Direct is? December 5-7 is what I predicted and the event is the 7th so that would be neat.

    • Iron Hydride

      Considering Melee > Brawl and Brawl > 3DS/Wii U were both six years I’m really not expecting Smash Switch news anytime really soon 😡

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I’m expecting a Smash 4.5 really, like FeH said, it’s too early for Smash 5 and that brings the question, if Smash 5 is a thing, who’s gonna direct/produce/make it?

      • ShinyXatu

        Please give it to Koizumi, that man is magical.

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Yes please, he did a great job with SMG 2 and Odyssey *0*

    • LunaMoon

      I’m expecting Mario Kart 9 or Mario Party 11. Sure there’s 8-deluxe and Top 100, but they’re not really new, so it’d make sense if they made MK9 and MP11.

  • Hey look how easily I beat this guy
    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ou-665613842

    • EarthenWarrior

      That guy was a scrub
      He didn’t switch into talonflame on Heracross

    • Hey Earthen your team just Crushed here

      Once Heracross got out it was basically over

      • EarthenWarrior

        Heracross is a deadly weapon once it gains momentum

  • Iron Hydride

    Your dream type combo is realised next Gen, but it’s the only Pokémon of either of its types

    How do you feel?

    • cool
      i mean we have plenty of fairies and dragons so thats fair

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Well it will be strong, since according to your explanation it has to be a starter Pokémon for that generation.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Normal/Ghost so that’s unlikely lol

      But yeah I’d still be cool with that, we already had enough cool ghost Pkms in gen 7

    • Hateful very hateful

      Water/Grass should not only have one of each (Note still not a big fan of Ludicolo)

    • LunaMoon

      It’d be nice to see a Fairy/Fire or Fairy/Fighting.

    • Butter Geek

      Kinda Impossible for mine

    • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

      Ghost/Fairy? Eehhhh it’d be ok, but the more fairy the better

  • Sunniera 2.0

    This question was asked a couple days ago. We now have an answer.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So I’m about to take on Lusamine for the first time(?) in UM. I’m actually kind of nervous. I had a hard time with Guzma and even had to use a few Rare candies to get my Pokemon up a couple levels each. I’m surprised I had such a hard time with him as he wasn’t too bad in SM. Excited to start getting to where the story diverges from normal SM tho. Should be good fun! Now to beat Lusamine. Wish me luck!

    • Wasn’t too bad?! His Masqurain killed me itself

      That battle will always haunt me as it was the first time I ever got frustrated being beaten by a nuisance

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I mean he wasn’t too bad in SM. in USUM I agree his Masqurain is deadly. He was pretty hard in USUM. Which why I’m scared for Lusamine. Gonna do that now!

        • He took out my Turtonator about 10 levels higher in 2 hits

          Air Slash, flinch, then another Air Slash

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Yuck…….that Air Slash is dangerous

    • MK126

      I’m just about to go through Po Town and I must say even fighting Guzma when it was just his Masqurain and his Golisipod (idk if I spelt that right) he was a pain so I can only imagine him now

  • Iron Hydride

    If Megas come back I want them to be handled like Z-Crystals in Alola where they’re used far more often

    • EarthenWarrior

      Uppity bug bitch

    • LunaMoon

      I had no idea Lusamine was a Pokemon! /s


  • Well, this is a pleasant surprise

  • Oh right Monkeyfuzz what was Clanger’s nature?

    I just want to know what all 6 of my Pokemon’s natures

  • So uhh.. was Top 100 any good?

          YES AND I THOUGHT WHEN I FINALLY DID IT I ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING JUST FOR IT TO BE IMMEDIATELY QUASHED

          I SPENT HOURS UPON HOURS

          • Govnah Dex

            Honestly I did after u showed me

            no? so you can surpass the teacher

    For the inevitable Switch Gen 4 remakes, here are some Megas I’d like.

    Mega Starters – Empoleon would gain a large metallic anchor and be covered by parts of metal, Infernape would be engfuled even more in flames and his eyes would turn bright red, and Torterra would gain sprouting roots all over and exploding trees and bushes all around.

    – Mega Lickylicky – Lickylicky’s tongue would expand all around and would carry Lickylicky around. It’d become a Normal-Psychic.

    – Mega Porygon-Z; it’d become flashy and parts of it “glitching” around. It’d have electricity shooting throughout as well as it having a blue glow resembling something downloading.

    – Mega Roserade – Its roses would bloom into two large shield-like rose bushes and its hair would explode into a spiky rose. It’d get a black mask and be covered with spiky vines.

    – Mega Mamoswine – Its tusks would be covered by sharp icicles, and its fur turning a bright white. Its feet would also become icicle-like and it’d have two dark eyes. It’d become Ice-Dark.

    BTW, I just replied Bunnelby and Buneary from the anime both sound the exact same, and Buneary sounds like Daisy from Mario..


  • So, after seeing this review of Coco (spoilers for anyone who hasn’t seen the movie), it makes me wanna see the movie even more now

    • LunaMoon

      Someone should make a parody of it as “Koko” and about Hau going to the Tapu-world to find his dead mother and father, and gain the trust and power of the legendary Tapu Koko.

    Well this day was nothing short of sad and depressing
    And tomorrow awaits another day of monotonous slave labor

    • Govnah Dex

      sorry

      • EarthenWarrior

        You don’t understand how upset I am, I worked so hard just to have it taken away

  • EarthenWarrior

    Can’t even break 5.5k anymore, I’m just destined to fail at every turn

    • No one is keeping score dude. It’s perfectly ok

      • EarthenWarrior

        I AM, I WORKED SO FREAKING HARD TO ONLY TO HAVE THAT ONE FLEETING MOMENT WHERE IM NOT A COMPLETE FAILURE JUST TO HAVE IT TAKEN AWAY, HOW COULD I POSSIBLY NOT FEEL ANYTHING BUT TOTAL DESPAIR

        • There’s always room for improvement. You can’t give up just because someone beat your score or something. You need to pick yourself up and try again.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Tell that to the four entire days I devoted to trying to beat it, just to get back at him for throwing my words back in my face making me feel like a failure, it’s not like I got a whole effing lot in the confidence department, I honestly feel like hitting myself or cutting myself at this point because things just do not get better for me at all, just an endless slew of feeling like a complete failure

            But why should anyone care, it’s not their problem and most people don’t give a crap about anything, just adding to the feeling that anything I do will be worthless

        • I think you need to take a step back and devote some time into less competitive activities. You will never be the best at anything, but you should always be improving to be the best YOU can be.

          I honestly think when you get into this competitive mode where you try to be better than everyone else at something, your failure just hurts hard. Just try to avoid those things and instead just do things that revolve around your own skill and no one else’s

          • To risk sounding like I have nothing to say and am just taking your words, I couldn’t have said it better myself. I was gonna say something else, but I can’t remember what it was

          • EarthenWarrior

            its just fancy talk for “you suck and you can’t prosper so give up, you won’t be better than anyone”

            I need to be better, it’s the only time that I don’t consider myself a gigantic waste of flesh and carbon

            I hate literally everything about myself, how I look, how I feel and how I speak and how I act upon this world, I’ve honestly considering driving away until was so lost I’d starve and die, or just lock myself away until my inevitable heart attack hits me and with my super obesity it’s guaranteed

            It’s either I be better than my peers or just live a life of senseless existence

          • Fam I’m an artist. My entire life revolves around turning my terrible artwork less terrible until it’s eventually good enough. I had to learn quickly that I will never be the best. There will always be people better than me. The artists I admire and look up to have people better than them. That doesn’t mean that those artists suck. Quite the opposite.

            Being the best in the world is an impossible goal for nearly anything in life. What you want to do is strive to be the best YOU can be. I’m only just now beginning to get my art to a place where I feel happy with it. Improvement takes a long time. And if your goal is to be better than the rest of the world, that improvement becomes harder and harder to see and you just become more and more frustrated

            I’m just using art as an example because thats what I do but this applies to anything you do.

            The trick is this. If you give up, you’re never going to see yourself and your skills get better. If I just stopped drawing a year ago, I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am now. And I could’ve stopped. Because improving my art and my mental health isn’t an easy thing. But I think I’d rather work through it and end up with something than give up and have nothing

          • EarthenWarrior

            No, I just don’t see myself improving, you’ve known me for years an nearly every day of that you’ve heard my yell my head off over countless losses due to my iconic bad luck or overall horribleness, I’m just unlucky and overall failure, I try and try and try and never get anywhere and even when I do, it gets 1upped and I’m back to square one.

            I rather off myself because clearly I’m not making headway with any departments, I’ve long accepted I will die alone and unhappy

          • You’re not alone as long as you have us. And though it may seem hard to improve, it’s never impossible, no matter what you think. Even if you do get 1-upped, it should give you more motivation to better yourself instead of moping like this.

          • Actually..? I’ve seen you become a much better person. You are much more chill than you were a year ago. You have your moments but for the most part you’ve been great.

            Again, improvement is hard. Sometimes it’s slow and you can’t really see it.

            IMO you need to cut out or cut down on the things that make you angry. You need to muster up your will power to avoid competitive battling especially when you see a losing streak coming. Do something with low stakes. Draw a silly comic, replay an old game you love, watch a new movie or TV show, go to the park. Something.

            Clearing your mind of the frustration will also help you when you return to what made you angry. You have a fresh perspective and you can see the bigger picture.

            And it can be extremely hard to do this. Especially if it’s something you’ve done for years. You will be the better for it. Life is going to suck if you are putting yourself through things that make you unhappy.

            I want to see you continue to improve yourself like I’ve seen these past few months. You are genuinely a really cool guy. Don’t let the games you’ve lost get in the way of that

          • EarthenWarrior

            But competition and anger is my lifeblood
            My sole reason I work myself into the ground is to prove to everyone I don’t suck, but I never get that moment, and even if I do it barely lasts half a day, and all my favorite “activities” just translate into me doing them alone or living in the past, since nobody ever hangs out or even talks to me in my household nor I have any physical friends, but I just remind myself I don’t belong with people or belong anywhere,

          • I honestly have to say your probably better than all of us at battling competitively

            Casc. may outsmart us by giving typically useless Pokémon a chance, but you pour your heart and soul into a battle and usually come out on top

            For someone who doesn’t use Legendaries you definetly are in the top tier best battlers out of anywhere I’ve seen

          • So you do competitive activities to prove that you are worthy as a person? In that case I think your biggest issue is confidence. I think that’s something you can work on.

            I’ve found that once you know a problem and you can attach a name to that problem, you have an angle to attack it from. That’s basically what dysphoria is and was for me.

            I’m still improving at this too so my biggest advice is

            1. Count your victories, and consider failiures as an oppertunity to learn. Don’t dwell on defeat

            2. Just tell yourself you’re awesome. Even if you don’t think you believe it, just say it. Every morning. Everytime you see a mirror. If you say something enough times, eventually you will believe it. So use that power for good.

            3. Don’t worry about other’s thoughts. Easier said than done I know, but other people can crush our confidence. We’re social animals so we want to be liked by others. If we don’t feel that then it hurts confidence. It’s best just to focus on you and the things that make you feel good. A lot of people think a lot of things about me. But why should I care? They don’t know me. This isn’t a switch you can flip instantly but it’s something to try to think about when you start worrying about what others think

            4. Try to always find something to look forward to. It can be a game, a holiday, an event, just something.

            5. It’s ok to not feel ok. It’s ok to have days where you just want to lay on the couch and be sad and watch youtube videos. It’s healthy to let emotions out. If you let it out rather than bottle it up, you will be better and stronger afterwards

            6. Be healthy. (I’m bad at this) get consistent sleep, eat well, go for walks sometimes. If your body is healthy, your mind will be too.

            Thats my advice anyways. This stuff takes time. It takes being proactive and it takes willpower. But think of it as a strategy to fight a problem. These are things you can do to begin slowly winning the fight against the things that you struggle with. And I know you’ve had lots of experiences already with therapists, but don’t be scared to ask for help if you need it. These people are paid to help people with their problems. Find the type of person who works for you and be vulnerable.

            I believe in youuuu

          • EarthenWarrior

            I don’t have any confidence in myself, not anymore

          • It can always be built back up fam. I know it can because that’s what I’m doing. And if this mess of a girl can do it, I know you can too.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Honey you don’t understand the gigantic disaster that is Ian Entharalis Earthen T K

          • Maybe not. But I’m still not giving up on you. You just gotta keep trying.

          • EarthenWarrior

            It’s a worthless endeavor, things never change or improve on my end, hell even in this short time I spilled and broke one of my favorite mugs on the bathroom floor and it was OJ so that’s hell on tiles, I CANT EVEN GET A FREAKING DRINK WITHOUT IT ENDING IN DISASTER

  • EarthenWarrior

    Yep totally a failure day, losing on showdown with a decent 5 loss losing streak

  • EarthenWarrior

    BLISSEY TBOLTS MY CLOYSTER AND PARALYZED IT WHY AM I NOT SURPRISED

    • It’s Blissey… It and Chansey are a nuisance to all competitive players (I usually think people who use them ate just using it to get a cheap win, instead of actually trying to have a good battle)

  • EarthenWarrior

    Oh this is rich, I get a crit Clang Soulblaze just for a Crit Jellicent Shadowball to just snuff it out….

      All right here to laugh and make fun of

      • Seraph used Wood Hammer

        Your team seems to be quite weak to rocks. May I reccomend serperior or rotom as a defog option?

        • EarthenWarrior

          All my teams are weak, always fearing the same old crap

      • I think you did nothing wrong, you just got dealt a bad hand

        But I think a Grass type could benefit your team

        How about Amoongus? Seems like your type of Pokémon and finding strategies with it can’t be too hard

  • EarthenWarrior

    There the only effing victory of the entire day
    Only because the other guy was an idiot and didn’t realize he could’ve dealt with my sweeper via fake out aka low ladder scrublords
    https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7nu-665750397

  • Hmm Earthen I think I know a way to balance your team Use

    Kommo-o
    Amoongus
    M-Aerodactyl
    Beware
    Galvantula
    And Crawdaunt

    Since your better at strategic planning I’ll let you decide how to use it, but I believe this team may help

    • EarthenWarrior

      Feh at first glance tho team lacks any worthwhile walls and cannot deal with walls themselves

      Worthless against any Tapus other than Bulu and Mimikyu ruins half of it, same with M. Venusaur which destroys if Aero isn’t healthy

      My only attempt would try to set sticky web and let amoongus soak up hits in a vain leech tox regenerator scam while you beef up with Kommo

      • Where is Venusaur ranked anyway?

        Because Tapu’s, Mimikyu and I think Venusaur are all OU tier meaning they wouldn’t touch this team

        • EarthenWarrior

          I’m just using OU as an example

          • Oh… alright

            But in stuff like UU it could be good especially if Aero runs Defog
