Welcome one and welcome all, to the PokéJungle Advent Calendar 2017!

Today marks the start of December and the official countdown to Christmas Day has begun. Hopefully you’ve all opened the first door on your own advent calendars, but for those who haven’t (or those who just crave more sweet, delicious goodness…) we’re happy to kick off our new Advent Calendar event!

From now until December 25th we will be publishing daily articles for our readers to… read. So what can you expect to find?! I shall tell you, young Trainer, just read on!

Saturdays will mark the return of our Showdown series, in which you guys vote for your top choice in order to see it win the round, hopefully make it to the final round and take the crown.

Sundays will remain the spot for our usual Weekly Wrap Up (but keep an eye out for some hidden extras).

Mondays will be where you can look forward to a new series, something we think you can only find right here in PokéJungle.net.

Tuesdays will mark the return of JungleAsks.

For the remaining days of the week we will be publishing a jamboree of other exciting content, including things such giveaways, competitions and special one-off articles! Of course, if there’s anything you’d like to see from us, just let us know and we’ll do our best to get something together!

So, here’s to a great festive season wherever you are in the world! We look forward to seeing everyone in the comment section as we count down the days until Christmas together!

PS: keep your eyes peeled for our Christmas theme coming very soon!

    Yes Pokemon showdown is back!!!! ;-; been waiting for so long.

    Also what’s a JungleAsk? Never heard of it before

    • We will ask questions for you guys to answer and discuss. Our favourites get featured in the next article. 🙂

  • zeldaoreonerd

    YOU GUYS! I FINALLY GOT POIPOLE! 5261 RESETS!! I’m so happy i can finally finish Ultra Sun now! So worth the wait i love this little guy! I’ll post pics in a reply to this comment in a little bit!

  • Sunniera 2.0

    This sounds like it will be a good December for the community. I am excited to see what articles will be on the other days. Thank you for your hard work. End of my robotic and topical comment so that all of you know that I am still with the living. (I am quite tired and in need of some holiday cheer).

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Ok so two things. First I’m an idiot. I picked up my Ultra Moon this morning and forgot that the time was shifted 12 hours…..I though my games time had been messed up some how because it was night time at 9 am……duh. Second is I caught Necrozma! Not all that hard a battle, but that’s cool. I got it in a Luxury ball which is pretty rad. I like where they had you catch it. The area is neat and makes it seem like something happened there.

  • EarthenWarrior

    siiiiigh I don’t have the holiday spirit
    nobody in my household doesn’t really know what to give to one another

    • Hmm you should stalk them or sneakily look into there interests, that’s how I buy gifts

  • Iron Hydride
  • Ultron

    Sweet. Looking forward to this

  • I expect you all the enter the giveaway. The prize is me. xo

    • Sunniera 2.0

      How do we enter?

      • You have to pledge your soul to me.

        • Further details to follow.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Damn it, can i work out a soul tab?
          I kinda sold mine to a bunch of people
          *you see a long line of demons and mobsters behind me*

          • I’m sure it can be arranged…

        • belmad

          It’s all yours, do whatever you want.

    • You sure you wanna just give that prize away?

      • Sorry, I meant “giveaway”.

    • belmad

      OMG! FuC, I need to win this giveaway

      • Hahahahahahaha, ur cute.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Soooooo my Grimer ate Hau’s team….single-handily

    • EarthenWarrior

      I just see my grimer just a goofy glutton, always trying to eat whatever is in his way, from rocks to even going as far as prying fence boards out of the ground

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Well Victory road still isn’t all that challenging in Alola. It’s a bigger tho? Still a cool area, but certainly not hard to get through. I guess that’s in part due to not needing HMs. They gotta find a way to up the difficulty and add a few puzzles without the need to HMs. That’s what makes a fun VR.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Got my first Ultra Warp ride shiny! IT was a Swellow that is now named Tsubame!

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Now I just caught a shiny Stunfisk! Named her Volterra.

      • I finally came up with a new name for Stunfisk, Pancake Face

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          That’s a good one haha

  • Monkeyfuzz

    I don’t have an advent calendar so I guess this will be what I use. There better be lots of Delibird representation.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Was gonna use Ultra Warp ride to train for the E4 since all the Pokemon found in there are lvl 60, but shiny hunting is very distracting so I may juts need to put going back in on hold until I beat the league. haha

  • What’s a Showdown series?

    And hyped for the rest!

  • And I know it’s getting repetitive now, but I made the level move set for Weblet the first stage of regional Bug. *Side Note it evolves at level 10, then level 20*

    Weblet
    Start- Tackle
    Lvl.3- String Shot
    Lvl.7- Fell Stinger
    Lvl.12- Sticky Web

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Give it Bug Bite, maybe at level 15 like other regional bugs.

      • They all get it? Ok then, I always thought that was just Caterpie

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Many if not most do at some stage. Also it’s a spider so it should probably have a bite move.

          • Yeah I think it’s final stage will learn Bite when it becomes that stage

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Well give it Psychic Fangs at that point then.

    • Oh and I remembered my regional Bug has some unique abilities making it difficult to fight

      Hylluweb will have
      A new Ability that makes all its contact moves have a 30% chance to confuse, Probably something like Tinted Lens and HA: Illusion (yep Zoroark ain’t special no more)

  • UnburdenedLegume

    About to take on the Aether Paradise! My proud team:
    Megatron the Metagross lv45
    Atlas the Torterra lv43
    Steve the Hakamo-o lv43
    Pikaboo the Mimikyu lv42
    Buzzkill the Yanmega lv42
    Naja the Arbok lv41

    • Seraph backwards is hpareS

      Yamyam

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I had to give it Signal Beam via tutor because it doesnt learn any decent stab moves until lv 53 (Air Slash and Bug Buzz at 55)

  • EarthenWarrior

    Totem Araquanid is defeated
    Charjabug put a valiant effort but those water bubbles ganging up on my tiny bus


  • As I said in the previous article, I might just pick him up

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I really need to hurry up and get my shiny charm back. I’m getting more and more sucked into the Ultra Warp Ride and just ran into a Moltres. I had to run because there’s no way I’m SRing for it without the charm. That’d take forever and I haven’t even beaten the league yet. I gotta focus on the task at hand so I can get the post game sooner rather than later. I think if I hadn’t found those shines I’d have stopped doing the UWR earlier, but the addiction is getting to me……lol

  • Daedardus

    Alrighty whimsy Pokéjunglers, which one of you bought Xenoblade Chronicles? If you didn’t, go buy it outright!

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Ok, just let me steal the money from my neighbours real quick

    • Boi

      I gotta finish 100%’ing Mario Odyssey

      Shiny Hunting in USUM

      Making some progress in Stardew Valley on Switch

      I gotta play Axium Verge

      And who knows when the hell Hollowknight Switch will be out

      Plus I wanna draw

      I am not throwing a 100 hour RPG experience on top of that lol

      • Daedardus

        Girl. If I say something take my advice okay. I don’t give bad advice.

        • Also wanna finish the Splatoon 2 story >.>

          • Ultron

            The story tbh is the worst part about the game

        • Plus Zelda DLC is coming this month

          And I wanna play the Metroid Prime Trilogy

    • Nah, I’m waiting till either Christmas for more games (I asked for Kirby Squeak Squad, Pokémon Y, Super Mario Maker 3ds and… I have the feeling there was one more, but I can’t remember) or holding my Money for Kirby: BR this January

      • Daedardus

        Can’t you just save the money for Switch? Especially Pokémon Y, that game’s not worth it.

        • I gave up my X to my brother so I wanted to go back and revisit Kalos

          And I’d rather get a job in Spring and build up money for a Switch then (or wait till a big sale)

    • Deerlia

      Dangit! i’d like to, my brother would love to, but cash is tight this year, deer…

    • Chaos

      Nah, I’ll pass

    • EarthenWarrior

      …….nah 🙂

  • Govnah Dex
    • Daedardus

      The Special Edition is so gorgeous! My package arrived and I was like, what, this is huge?!

      • Govnah Dex

        The EU one is better tho 🙁

        • Daedardus

          I have the European one! 🙂

  • MenacingCascoon

    Yessss! More interactive articles. Thank goodness. Lately all the Pokemon GO articles are not for me since I dont play go! and Im wiling to bet most people here dont. I’m ready to see what the new articles have in store!
    Competitions?? PJT 17???

  • Well 1 down, only 9 to go in GO (of my super close ones) https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d37e99732af4979a4edf3bee3ac6680c3367ee5b0883837cfc71234c38a7a336.png

    My next challenge is Clefable

  • EarthenWarrior

    Totem Marowak was no match for Lycanroc, but now I can hunt for Stufful

  • MK126

    Im convinced that my lycandusk will remain a rockruff forever. As soon as it hits 5pm in my game it goes to night time. Its already level 50 and i just beat Lusamine the first time and i really just want him to evolve to actually be usable in battle 😭😭😭

    • Butter Geek

      Check if your 3DS clock shows 5 pm too

      • MK126

        It says 5:40 so i fixed it to its appropriate time lol

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Have you tried breeding it and seeing if a bred one evolves?

      • MK126

        I have not but the game clock now says 4:48 and the sun is still down

        • Monkeyfuzz

          What version is it?

          • MK126

            US

          • Monkeyfuzz

            And it’s the event Own Tempo one? Did you try changing your DS clock to 5pm? If it still doesn’t work and doesn’t work with a bred one I suggest contacting Pokemon.com to see if they can help.

          • MK126

            Yeah its the event own tempo one. The DS clock was already after 5pm so i set it back an hour

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Other than trying a bred one or contacting them to see if it’s a glitch idk.

  • Carrrot

    My poison heal breloom keeps expeling the posion so I don’t worry. 🙁

    • Monkeyfuzz

      That’s because you did refresh with it too much. Does it hold Toxic Orb?

      • Carrrot

        It has a toxic orb, I just wanted it to love me.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Well you’ll have to put up with the side effect then unfortunately. At least it’s only going to happen in-game.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      That’s the one thing about the refresh stuff. Things like poison heal Breloom become issues. I have one from ORAS and he was great. I’d have a poison orb on him and he’d destroy.

  • LunaMoon

    On the first day of December my Pokemon gave me to me; 1 oran berry in a berry tree!

  • joker901

    Just a question: have the odds of sos chaining changed?
    I caught a Flabebe at a chain of 258 and it had 4 ivs. Today I caught one at a chain of 262 and it has 4 ivs.
    In s/m the chain ended at 255. So what?

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well since I don’t feel like recatching my Stufful in a Heal Ball I need to figure out what ball to use on Sandygast……maybe a Dusk Ball duhhh or should it be an Ultra Ball

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Dive because it’s at the beach.

      • EarthenWarrior

        BUT ITS NOT BLUUUUUUUUUUU

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It’s not the same colour as any ball so…

          • EarthenWarrior

            No Dusk Ball

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Half way through the E4. At Acerola. So far not too bad. That said my team is like 10 levels above all of theirs so it’s not like I’m on their level, but still having fun.

    • EarthenWarrior

      That’s the problem I’m having I feel bad my Pokemon are leveling up super fast even when I turn Exp Share off

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I feel like after you beat the main story part right before the league a little grinding basically gets you to a point where you can beat the league no problem. Up until now my Pokemon have all been either at about the same level of the opponents or even underleveled. That said I did spend a little time on Mt Lanakila doing some grinding so I’d be ready.

  • I’m a little annoyed that Hollowknight still doesn’t have a release date for the Switch version. They said it was coming out in August and still hasn’t.

    I’ll probably just get it on Steam during the winter sale

  • Deerlia

    So i caught a shiny lombre last night, but i dunno, i wanna try sos battles again, oddly enough.
    I’m not saying i miss them much, but.. there was a lot more choices for a little extra wait.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I wish things like Wimpod and Passimian are SOSable

      Seriously I get why Wimpy can’t but why do Passimian summon Trumbeak, the damn thing is all about teamwork they should call in a horde

    • There wasn’t that much wait actually. You could get a shiny in 1-3 hours ususally

      …. EXCEPT MIMIKYU WHICH I HUNTED FOR DAYS AND I NEVER GOT

      • Oops. I was goona say.

        I’m hunting for a Shiny Pheramosa right now but I wanna try for a shiny Mareanie and name it watermelon

      • Deerlia

        *patpat* there there deer, one day…

    • Ultron

      SoS battles give me cancer.

      • .-.

        • Ultron

          I hate them so much. Just masuda method

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Pokemon Mum who has her own Pokemon and clearly knows about wild Pokemon: “Hey why don’t you go out to town completely defenceless”. Surely she could send Meowth with you by your side.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Beat the league! It was a fun time! Not CRAZY challenging, but I make a head canon to make it more theatrical in my head. lol My one complaint about the league and honestly all the main characters in general is that they end up using they’re main Pokemon second to last. I would have rather had them save their main Pokemon for last to make it feel like we both have our strongest Pokemon out in the final battle, but oh well.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Holy crap the end credit sprite animations are totes adorbs for USUM!!

    • It got a cheap smile out of me because it reminded me of Johto

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        That’s exactly what it’s like. I love the chibi sprites they used for the credits. So cute

  • DucoLamia

    Has anyone seen this video yet?

    I honestly recommend every Pokemon fan watch this video. It’s long as hell, but really, I think everyone who loves Pokemon should take a look at it. I may not agree with some of the things this guy says, but it’s worth a watch.

    • EpicThugRug Plays

      i saw it

    • I seriously recommend this. He brings up such great points and put a lot of my problems with modern Pokémon into words.

    • I would seriously love if this was actually in the game

    • TheReece25

      🤣..

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    What am I doing to myself? Am I really full odds hunting for a shiny Stakataka while knowing I’ll have to trade the other for a Blacephalon later leaving me with now normal Stakataka? *sigh*….this is my life…..shiny hunting for the sake of shiny hunting and it hurts


  • I find the weirdest s**t on YouTube

    • Holy crap, I just realized the thing explodes at the end

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I just got back from seeing spooky scary skeletons: Mexico

    ….I loved it, And not to be that kinda guy it meant a lot to me because my father is a musician who had similar goals and aspirations but truly loves music and lives by it

    • Ayyyy

      I think this might be my favorite Pixar movie. You can just tell the people who made it really wanted to make it. Just a fantastic movie.

  • Yo, anyone on?

    • Carrrot

      No

    • EarthenWarrior

      Only a few faint sounds of life *Fart*

  • https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9d00622814bb369aa5ca4370e723a2bab80284eb0520f575ecfd3d67be198f13.jpg
    So, this is the Female Majin character I made in Xenoverse 2 (This isn’t my first Avatar, btw, my first one is a Level 85 Frieza Race/Arcosian character). I named her Makoto because it just popped into my head (She’s Level 62, btw). I had her in Gogeta’s outfit before, but I just decided to change for the picture for whatever reason. I wonder if anyone here would be willing to draw her (I’m not asking anyone to draw her, but if you want to, that’s cool. Just clarifying)?

    • Also, sorry if the picture is a bit blurry, I had to take with my Chromebook and I didn’t know how to turn the camera around (Not the actual Chromebook itself, just the camera).Also, Disqus has been acting weird on mobile lately

  • Listen… people like… go see Coco, it’s phenomenal. Gorgeous animation and visuals, great story, wonderful characters. Pixar at its best.

    But get there 30-40 minutes late…

    Trust me…

    There is 21 Minutes of a Frozen shirt that is just such garbage I wanted to leave the theatre. It’s only redeeming quality is that it kinda sorta looks like Frozen.

    Coco is fantastic

    But… 30-40 minutes late. It’s not even so bad it’s good. Like I think I hate it

    • TheReece25

      I’m confused… First 30 min suk cuz a character wore a frozen shirt??

      • She meant a short

        • TheReece25

          O… Lol. I was wondering why there is still so much new Frozen merchandise being made. They’re Really milking this thing years later

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I still have to wait until January, but it’s Pixar so I’ll see it (the exception is Cars sequels, number 2 put me off).

    • Ultron

      A 21 minute frozen short is literally ridiculously long to ask of people. Why didnt it air on tv like all the toy story ones and then that slot could be given to animators to be creative?

      • I think it’s another way for Disney to hold shackles on Pixar and force them to advertise that over used movie (seriously, Frozen wasn’t even that good looking back now)

      • They didn’t think people would want to see coco so they moved a TV special to a short to put before Coco to make people see it which is ironic because it made me never want to watch a movie again

        • Ultron

          If anything that puts me off from wanting to see Coco.

    • LunaMoon

      Yeah, when I went to watch Coco, I found it a bit ridiculous how long the Frozen short was. Normally the shorts are between 3-6 minutes, sometimes over but never over 10 minutes. I get that Frozen is great, but did they seriously have to delay a brand new movie for another short of something that came out 4 years ago? It’s weird how Frozen gets so much more attention than Moana, Zootopia, and now Coco. I find it stupid.

  • TheReece25

    I do find Rotom annoying at times… I didn’t think I would but I do. He’s Always depressed until you tap on him.. and he just keeps talking.. like.. stfu! Ugh. Not like in anime

    • LunaMoon

      I also don’t like it when he’s like “Here’s where I give you advice you didn’t ask for!” especially when I’m trying to access his Roto-Lotto or something that involves him.

  • https://streamable.com/xatx6
    Yo, this opening is amazing. Little Witch Academia is such a great anime

  • TheReece25

    Wow.. Andi Mack is a good childrens show . Finally something for kids that doesn’t insult their intelligence. It’s like everything else is purposely dumbing them down.
    I do see some illuminati imagery in the background tho..

  • Josh Omega

    USUM update. I am taking this slower than usual but I just finished my first trial and beat totem gumshoos. This is my team as of now. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/223ab732c58e7b9da34ac287f0756403d19830754d3559805477cbb896ac75f4.jpg

      On tuesday I got a great new Land Rover Range Rover from having earned $11752 this last four weeks..with-out any doubt it’s the most-comfortable job I have ever done .. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it GoogleNetJobsFreeWorkFromHome/find/jobs….

    • Cool team!

      • Josh Omega

        Thanks!

    • LunaMoon

      Neat! I suggest levelling up Zuko before battling as he’s really close to evolving.

      • Josh Omega

        Delayed his evolution until lv 22 to get bite earlier lol plus I love littens design a lot

  • Well I think I have got my Regional Rodent

    A Quoll a small predator of Australia *Ironically with all my Australian origins, my region spans the Mid-atlantic of the US

    • Ack I just remembered and not gotta make the call do I go for a Quoll or an idea I just remember that I made the other day and have a Music themed Rodent called Micstro (A blend on the words Mice and Mistro (or conductor of a band or orchestra)

      • Nvm, I have better plan I’m doing a SuMo

        The Quoll will be available at night, while Micstro will be around in the morning

  • Hmm based on the title of the next few episodes of the Anime, I think I know what’s going to happen

    -Solgaleo will return to Ultra Space as expected
    -Filler episodes
    -Ula’Ula arc, where I believe a lot will go down in this arc judging on how slow Ash’s team has progressed thus far, so I assume Litten evolving and a new catch
    -Sidebar note, I guarentee the Ghost trial will give a ton of development to Jessie’s Mimikyu
    -More filler in which by this time Ash should be hitting his Max team count for Alola (maybe we will dive into more the USUM part of the series)
    -Poni Island revisited arc, so maybe he visits the Battle Tree or Faces Mina
    -The Mane of Dusk and URS arc
    -Then in the middle of this arc, maybe they visit Buzzwole and Pheromosa’s Worlds and spend time there
    -Finally the big climax to it (Ash v.s. Necrozma, granted they do Necrozma in the show)
    -And then the Pokémon League

    Think my idea is right or do you have doubts?

    • LunaMoon

      I think there also might be a movie/final arc involving Episode Rainbow Rocket. For the movie they could call it Pokemon: Rise of Rainbow or something and if it’s an arc, they could have the first episode focus on its attack, the 2nd Ash’s encounter with the first two from G3, then 4, 5, 6 and then Faba, and finally it’s Giovanni.

      • I shoot I totally forgot Rainbow Rocket, I did want to mention them, but forgot

        I do believe though that Giovanni and the others will appear. Only problem is unless they really are from other dimensions in the Anime, both Lysander and Cyrus will be absent due to them being deemed dead

        • LunaMoon

          Yeah, and although I understand fully how ORAS are in the same dimension as USUM and they’re good guys or at least not evil and such, but i really prefer their ORAS style over their old ones. Their faces look too small for their heads and they’re so…..boring! I prefer Archie’s pirate-esque outfit from AS and Archie’s glasses from OR.

  • LunaMoon

    For anyone who did watch it, what did you think of Coco? Personally I really enjoyed the movie, it had a great balance of humour and emotion, and it was really unique. Plus they did some excellent foreshadowing.

    • I haven’t seen it yet, but I want to

      • LunaMoon

        You really should it’s an amazing movie.

  • Ooo thinking about something that LunaMoon

    I want to start back up my Fan-fix, but reroute it entirely (like change teams, fix certain elements, fix some personalities, etc.)
    Think I should go for it?

  • EarthenWarrior
    • I’m watching that rn

      • EarthenWarrior

        Basically this would happen if we ever played a RPG
