  • Cool fam

  • Govnah of Destruction

    Just wanted to say to you guys, goodbye and enjoy your lives ok?

    • Natale

      ok.

      I’ll try

    • Govnah go to discord now

    • Ultron

      Are you going somewhere?

    • What?! Where are you going?! Don’t leave us my friend!

      :, (

  • Natale

    Cool thumbnail art btw :0

  • Ultron

    Those transparent pokeballs are pretty cool. I also rather like that evil team phone cover or whatever it is. Also sleepy Rowlet in the bag <3

  • LunaMoon

    nice

  • If Detective Pikachu comes in 2020… I will not be too happy

    But happy note I caught a Voltorb in Go that randomly spawned

    And question for those who saw the last Jedi
    Does r2d2 die? I thought I heard this, but I could be wrong

    • Other side note that is a bit odd

      I invited someone to my Amino, they literally within a day changed their profile to Kurusu 2.0 and told me they have a crush on me and I have no idea who they are.

      I don’t know whether to be paranoid or a bit flattered by the remark

    • InfinityD4

      Why does a Short, Japan-only Download-only Spin-Off get a movie?

      • Way easier then a main series one and I think to not have to go with the cliche of typical Pokémon games

        And it is basically confirmed to be coming to Europe and the U.S. within a few years (Probably a full version combining the existing game with a second half)

        • InfinityD4

          Better be a Big Second half…

          • InfinityD4

            also Apparently May 10th 2019 for the movie according to wikipedia

          • InfinityD4

            and Apparently the game in Europe in December 2020… no mention of them improving it in any way though.

    • Daedardus

      No lol, he’s only in ten seconds of the whole movie

      • I want to f*cking kill the producers now, for basically taking my favorite character out of the movie

        • R2D2 is your favorite character? He’s hardly even a character

          • He’s my favorite SW character and in my top 10 of all time

        • Monkeyfuzz

          My favourite character died in the movie he was introduced in.

          • Maul? I do wish he would have had more relevance to the movie tbh

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Nope, Yoda. Sure he has other appearances, prequels etc, but he’s best as a puppet I feel.

          • Oh that’s a little sad, Yoda is pretty cool and he was a big influence in the story as he basically was the leader of the Jedi

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yep, at least Chewie and C3PO are still alive…for now.

  • TheNintendoChip

    I’ve been looking for Poipole on the GTS… The first time I started looking I found one that was requesting a Dewpider (which I had), but someone got it before me :/
    I’ve not been able to find another one since

    • Feliz Navidad

      I just sold off shinies that I had on hand, getting limited Pokémon on the GTS is hell

      • TheNintendoChip

        I just want to reach Poni Gauntlet but I can’t before doing the UB quest in Poni…and I want to SR for a shiny Stakataka and a shiny Poipole too so I don’t want to get mine already. Just frustrating :/

        • Feliz Navidad

          I’ll happily trade you Poipole and

          • Feliz Navidad

            *Naganedel forward and back to get their dex entries?

            Sorry for comment break lol

          • TheNintendoChip

            That would be much appreciated! Would you happen to have Blacephalon too? If not that’s fine. And if there’s anything you need let me know
            FC: 4425-1958-2350

          • Feliz Navidad

            Got a whole livedex so I’ll happily help you with tracebacks for anything you need

            Will get my fc in a sec after checking if I have you or not

          • TheNintendoChip

            You probably don’t have me. I haven’t added anyone here for a while.
            I think I only need the following: Turtonator, Passimian, Solgaleo, Poipole, Naganadel, Buzzwole, Kartana, and Blacephalon.
            Basically all the Gen 7 version exclusives, I have a living dex for Gen 1-6 already.

          • Feliz Navidad

            2767-2720-7405

            I’d offer to breed spares of the breedable ones but I’ll probably only have time for tracebacks

          • TheNintendoChip

            That’s fine, there’s always another time. I’m heading on now

          • Feliz Navidad

            Just getting on UM now, was getting the stuff off bank

          • Feliz Navidad

            Were you Ken?

          • TheNintendoChip

            Yup!

          • Feliz Navidad

            We gonna go in a trade circle until I trade Swanna back for the last Mon?

          • TheNintendoChip

            That’s what I was thinking

          • Feliz Navidad

            Great mind think alike ⊂(▀¯▀⊂)

          • TheNintendoChip

            Do you have Kartana as well? I don’t remember trading it

          • Feliz Navidad

            I probably accidentally skipped over it, sorry bout that

          • TheNintendoChip

            It’s fine. Thank you so much!

          • Feliz Navidad

            No probs dude, always happy to help!

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • LunaMoon

      I’d also try to max my Dex but:
      1) Pheramosa shiny soft resetting
      2) Too lazy to find all of ’em.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        You can get infinite pheromosa lol so just catch one for the dex and then go back to shiny hunting

        • InfinityD4

          Once per visit to Ultra Desert!

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Yes and you can visit ultra desert as many times as you want and it’ll have a pheromosa every time as well?

          • InfinityD4

            why the Question Mark? I was Reaffirming your Statement.

        • LunaMoon

          I already have Pheramosa cause I transferred most of my Pokemon from Bank.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        You realise how much faster the hunt will be with Shiny Charm right?

        • LunaMoon

          Yeah but it’ll take longer to get all the Pokemon for the charm. Besides I think I’m getting close to the shiny. I can feel it.

  • InfinityD4

    Headcanon Time:
    Sinnoh’s routes are 201+ because it’s the northernmost Region in the Japan
    Hoenn’s are 101+ because it’s the southernmost.
    Kanto and Johto are 1+ because they’re central.

    headcanon is odd hundreds are between Hoenn and Johto and Evens are between Sinnoh and Kanto.

    • TheNintendoChip

      I think it’s more just a way of keeping Gens 1-4 connected but still different.
      Kanto obviously would have the route numbers in the 1-10s because it was the first region
      Johto it makes sense to continue from Kanto given that they’re directly connected
      Hoenn is farther from Kanto/Johto, so its routes start from 100 (like a half-reboot)
      Sinnoh does the same thing b/c it’s not directly linked to Kanto, Johto, or Hoenn, and starts from 200 b/c Hoenn already started from 100
      Unova is an actual reboot of sorts, so it started from 1 again. And then there’s no point to go back into the 100s/200s again so Kalos and Alola each start from 1 as well (you could also make some sort of distance argument).

      • InfinityD4

        … Headcanon… I already know the official reasons they did it…

        • TheNintendoChip

          Oh I didn’t know there was an official reason! My bad

          • Feliz Navidad

            Nah dude, he’s saying yours is the official reason and his is the headcanon :p

          • TheNintendoChip

            Yes I understand, I felt bad b/c I didn’t know that was the official reason, nor that there was one in the first place

          • Feliz Navidad

            Oh sorry dude I presumed you were apologising for not knowing his headcanon was official or something and I’m just generally confused

          • InfinityD4

            My Headcanon was the Even/Odd Routes thing and He Responded with the official Reason GF gave to Route Numbers Resetting and Didn’t know that was a thing.

          • InfinityD4

            Don’t Feel bad, I actually feel bad now since I assumed it was common Poke-Knowledge.

          • InfinityD4

            as you said, the official reason was because Hoenn and Sinnoh weren’t directly connected to Kanto and Johto, and the Sevii islands have no route numbers as to not make people think you could go to Johto in FRLG, and since New York, France and Hawaii are so far away they started over from 1.

  • InfinityD4

    So We know Lieutenant Surge is American and took part in some Modern Pokemon War, we just don’t know where from, he could be from Unova, Orre or Alola since all of them are Based on parts of the USA, or somewhere they haven’t invented yet. I want to know how/why he decided to settle in Japan.

    • Feliz Navidad

      I’d imagine since he’s a military man he had the opportunity to travel a lot and he just fell in love with Kanto and stayed there

      • InfinityD4

        Yeah. Also He Can Speak Fluent Japanese. Also, Remember Dome Ace Tucker? Who looks like Fantina? and also how we don’t know if She’s from Kalos because she’s French or not.

        • Feliz Navidad

          Actually, Fantina speaks English in the original Japanese version so she could be intended to be seen as American/British

          • InfinityD4

            Definitely Foreign though.

  • InfinityD4

    Question: Have you ever tried designing a region based on a place in the real world?
    I’ve been trying to base one on greece for years now.

  • Daedardus

    *SPOILERS for TLJ*
    Can we have an appreciation thread for how great the Cruiser lightspeed crash scene was? Like, one of the best moments in cinema ever and a great use of using silence. Even though you knew what Holdo was trying to do, the whole theater jawdropped for like half a minute when you saw what happened. Really amazing.

    • InfinityD4

      that was a close one.

      • InfinityD4

        the post/delete/repost thing.

        • Daedardus

          I fixed it under five seconds, no complaining ;).

          • InfinityD4

            I’m not, I’m impressed.

    • Feliz Navidad

      I saw what you did last spoiler ?

    • Chaos

      Yeah, you knew what was happening, but the cinematography was spectacular. With the silence you could literally hear a pin drop.

    • The Butter Grinch

      the silence was amazing

    • Natale

      Yep you kinda convinced me to watch this movie :0

      And yes I spoiled myself before even watching it…

      • dude I spoil everything to myself

        • The Butter Grinch

          Why? That could make something much less fun for you

        • Natale

          Tbh, spoilers never ruin surprises, in fact they sometimes can even make movies and other stories more enjoyable

          • I wouldnt say never

            I always prefer to go into a game or movie as blind as possible

          • Natale

            Oh didn’t mean to surprises, I meant movies

            Oops

          • ehh still though

      • The Butter Grinch

        So… you wouldn’t see Star Wars Episode VIII if it wasn’t for Dae?

        • Natale

          Pfft not only dae, I saw a lot of spoiled reviews, dae’s was just the last one to make me decide to watch it

  • UnburdenedLegume

    If people are gonna leave star wars spoilers here i’m staying away. thought this was a pokemon forum

    • Daedardus

      Don’t be such a baby, you can easily avoid them if they are tagged. We talk about a lot of stuff and Star Wars belongs to that pop culture.

    • Feliz Navidad

      ??? You literally brought up Kingdom Sharts yesterday?

  • EarthenWarrior

    So did officially lose Govnah?

    • The Butter Grinch

      Yeah, what was that about?…

    • Natale

      Yay!

      I mean no!

    • ShinyXatu

      Come again?

      • Look at the oldest comments on this article. He said goodbye and hope we have good lives

        • ShinyXatu

          Oh gimme a break, I’ll message him on Discord and he’ll be back within the hour.

          • Yeah people just have to avoid… those… weird… spoiler tags…..

            *dashes like a moth to a light to spoiler tags*

          • ShinyXatu

            Sorry, but nothing is wrong with spoiler tags, I’m with Dae on this one. They allow those who have seen spoilers and those who have not to coexist on the same platform. If that’s what Govnah was upset about, it might actually be an issue to address.

          • I also agree, I just love looking in them

          • ShinyXatu

            Then you see, it gives you the choice whether or not to cave in like that! Really a positive thing all around.

          • TheNintendoChip

            I haven’t seen the latest Star Wars. I don’t want to be spoiled. I can handle not looking at spoiler tags and any potential accidental things I see (like if I accidentally hover my mouse over a spoiler tag, I can just turn my head to not see anything)

          • MenacingCascoon

            Is there some disqus discord I havent been invited to >:(

          • Natale

            Same :p

          • yes

          • MenacingCascoon

            Well can I get an invite or do you guys hate me?

          • lol nah. we dont hate you. It’s just kind of a friend group and we’re close

          • MenacingCascoon

            Itts ok that you hate me. I understand

          • That’s not what Govnah was upset about. Don’t worry about it.

    • TheNintendoChip

      Probably due to people posting stuff about SW, albeit in spoilers.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Oh he’ll be back

        • Feliz Navidad

          He will be, I just think he need’a break for now.

    • Chaos

      I was apprehensive about discussing the movie because of this exact reason.

      Although I am done apologising because people have such little self control.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Dont worry. Im sure he’s probably got something going on. He’ll back soon. Happens to all of us

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I hate myself…..I want the Pokeball 2ds, but that’d be such a HUUUUGE waste of money that I can’t possibly justify it. Especially since Pokemon will be going to the Switch anyway (eventually)………*sigh*

    • ShinyXatu

      I have one of those but I haven’t opened it yet. Since it’s not as collectible as I expected, I may open it today and tell you what I think 😛

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        K….thanks…….I want it so bad, but know I shouldn’t spend the money haha

  • ShinyXatu

    So apparently I haven’t played Ultra Moon since November 25…I’m still at the beginning of Poni Island, but I’ll make the completion of the story a priority for the day. Things have just been so crazy with finals and life stuff, I guess I never realized how long it’s been.

    • LunaMoon

      That sucks especially since ~65% of the new content is at Poni and beyond.

      • I am a long way from the new stuff then… I still haven’t beat Olivia

        • LunaMoon

          Olivia is Rock-type

  • Oh right I forgot to mention how pissy I am that then ended season 1 one of SuMo while in Japan its still going on

    So we were 7ish episodes behind in the US, now because season’s take typically a month or so breaks we’ll 15 or 16 or more behind. Not to happy about it

  • ShinyXatu

    I have a feeling that Nintendo of America is waiting to reveal the Pikachu 2DS XL until the January Nintendo Direct. Just a hunch that I have, for anyone who is waiting for that.

    • no they wont release it in America. They’re going to try to end the 3DS quietly

      • By ending it with some big releases early 2018?

        • no

          by trickling out minor titles and putting all of their effort into their shiny new handheld/console hybrid

          • Kirby Battle Royal isn’t so small though?

            Don’t tell me Kirby is minor as its the 8th highest franchise under Nintendo.

          • Feliz Navidad

            It’s a spin off game. That’s still quite small.

          • Conquest was a spin off, it wasn’t so small

            And if your implying by the second comment 8th is still small (Just assuming you are) it loses with only three franchises younger than it beating it being Smash, Wii Series and Pokémon as it loses too Mario, Zelda and Donkey Kong all of which have quite a few years above Kirby. Yet Kirby beats some older games like Metroid, Yoshi. While also crushing other big names like Pikmin, Fire Emblem, Star Fox and Splatoon

            So no, Kirby ain’t small at all

          • Yes it was small. You have a very very narrow view of gaming. In the wide scale of gaming, it is tiny. You see it as a bigger franchise than it is because you’re super into it.

            It’s a super casual game and while there isnt anything wrong with that, it isn’t Odyssey or BOTW. Even the Kirby and Yoshi games on the Switch coming out are not exactly heavy hitters

          • Feliz Navidad

            Kirby is small, it’s absolutely dwarfed by other franchises. And Conquest is small, like two people heard of it

          • It flew off shelves all over my state, I got lucky that I beat the guy behind me at Best Buy

          • It’s a very small release.

    • Daedardus
    • Ultron

      Wow, very good

    • The Butter Grinch

      Rn the face doesn’t fit the body, but I know this is just the sketch. Other than that, Looks good!

      • Alyce

        Google is paying 97$ per hour,with weekly payouts.You can also avail this.
        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

    • Re:Seraph

      I like it! The hair especially

    • LunaMoon

      Looks like a neat concept of a DP remake girl player.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ughhhhhh i’m bummed out…..my brother let me in on what he’s buying for the family for X-Mas and he’s already spent 500 bucks on stuff making me feel like a cheapskate……

    I suck at getting people gifts

    • I got my brother a already owned baseball Plushie and I think he bought me Kirby Squeak Squad

      I have no clue what else to get him

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It’s not about the money, it’s the thought that counts. That’s why I only give the thought.

      • EarthenWarrior

        you make a compelling argument

    • InfinityD4

      I’m in a similar boat since I CAN’T FOR THE LIFE OF ME FIGURE OUT WHAT TO GET ANYONE.

      • EarthenWarrior

        i’ve boiled it down to

        Model Paints for my asshole Brother (i was gonna get him a cold steel Rapier but i’m not made of money…mostly fat but not money)
        Headset for my mope Brother
        Slippers for my Mother
        some kinda……thing for my Father

  • Interesting… according to the wiki,

    SuMo sold less than XY and BW sold even less than both. And HGSS is the second lowest Pokémon game in the Top 41 most sold Nintendo games being in 32 while beating FRLG by one place

    And oddly BW2, Crystal, Emerald, Platinum aren’t even on the list at all (Note yellow and ORAS are on the list so they aren’t just clumped together)… Also RBG is the 5th highest sold video game in Nintendo history only beaten by the original Mario game, Both Wii sports games and Mario Kart Wii

      XY was way more hyped than Sun and Moon because they were capitalizing on the growing 3DS hardware and transitioning from 2D sprites to 3D models. The same thing will happen with the Switch game(s) for obvious reasons, and then Gen 9 will likely dip again.

      • I just found these as interesting things I never knew till just now

        Now that I think every two gens. (Aside from Gens 1-3) we switch consoles

        Gen. 4 and 5- DS
        Gen.6 and 7- 3DS
        Gen.8- Switch

        • InfinityD4

          It’s because Console Gens are Getting Longer.

        • ShinyXatu

          We’re definitely going to go up to Gen 9 (and maybe even Gen 10) on Switch. We’re stuck with this beautiful baby boy until 2025 at the very least!

  • Daedardus
    • The Butter Grinch

      Two Blue Joy-Cons? WHAT MAGIC IS THIS?

      • Daedardus

        The Magic of the Blue Joy-Con pack?

    • aw thats cool

  • The Butter Grinch

    Has anyone noticed that the Switch with Neon Joy cons would be perfect for playing 2 player Cuphead?

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well my crystal run is going….swimmingly as planned
    Feraligatr
    Donphan
    Ursaring
    Crobat (newly evolved after nine proteins and a shiatsu)
    Pupitar (which i’m enjoying actually leveling for once)

    i feel like doing RSE after this

    • InfinityD4

      I wish I could do Crystal, I Foolishly Traded it to my friend for his Red Version

      • EarthenWarrior

        dude emulate

        • InfinityD4

          Why? I can Wait a month.

          • EarthenWarrior

            it’s just a decent thing to have
            I run Visualboyadvanced and Project64, granted Pokemon roms are now a risky download since they really cracked down on pirating Emuparadise and Coolroms used to be a Emulator’s paradise

          • InfinityD4

            The Paradise of Emus was my backup when Coolroms went down, and now it sucks too.

          • EarthenWarrior

            luckily i have literally all the best ones (granted they’re clogging my already 7 year old laptop)

          • InfinityD4

            I thankfullu managed to find and archive them for use later.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Definitely think I will get Crystal. I never owned it for real and I think I want to shiny hunt Ho-Oh and Lugia on it.
    There’s some merchandise here that interests me but we probably won’t get it here, might be on ebay I guess. The Salandit plush, Chimchar line figures, Decidueye figure, Alolan Marowak figure and clear Pokeballs all look good to me.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Shiny Huntin’ in Crystal…..have fun descending into madness

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Why? Sure there’s no shiny charm but I think I’ll manage. Also I don’t need to worry about nature since that’s decided by exp.

        • InfinityD4

          Just Remember, because Shininess and Gender are both tied to the Attack DV, Female Starters and others with that Gender Ratio can never be Shiny. Females also have low Attack.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            That’s fine, I’m only going for the legends shiny really.

          • InfinityD4

            10 in Speed Defense and Special and 1 of 8 values for Attack DVs

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK thanks, though I’m not sure if there’s a way to affect those or not.

          • InfinityD4

            I know just wanted to put it out there.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      It was the first pokemon game i actually properly played all the way through, it has great emotional value to me. Definitely getting it as well

  • ShinyXatu

    Yay, Pokemon I Choose You is on Kissanime now! Should I go for the dub? That’s what I’m most used to listening to, I’m probably immune to the toxicity.

    • InfinityD4

      It’s more Lactose Intolerance, because THE CHEESE.

      • InfinityD4

        although the last time I actually remember watching the Dub was one of the Nacrene City Episodes.

    • Ultron

      The best version of that movie to watch is the one where you don’t watch it at all

      • ShinyXatu

        God damn…however, I’m a masochist so I want to see what the kids are watching these days. Sub it is.

        • EarthenWarrior

          wait sub? don’t you mean dub?

          • ShinyXatu

            I may be a masochist, but I don’t want to die just yet.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I won’t lie……the dub is REALLY bad, i felt like punching my face to protect itself from permanent damage

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        It’s not that bad….it’s pretty par for the course. Not great, but not the worst thing in the world. There are worse dubs

        • EarthenWarrior

          whatever i punched myself to spare me the cringe
          and i came out with only minor drain babage

          • ShinyXatu

            Hey, that’s my dad’s joke. We have patent pending.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Pending schmending

  • EarthenWarrior

    ……crapballs, I beat Clair and i forgot i need some sucker to know Whirlpool and now i gotta find something i can use since normally i used Gyarados but i kinda….made it a Scizor which can’t do it

  • MenacingCascoon

    Let’s be real here. I may have asked this before.
    Is money a bad gift?

    Personally I say no because thats like a wild card and can spend it on anything they want, but I know some people who say money is a very terrible thoughtless gift. What do you guys think

    • MenacingCascoon

      I remember one time my parents gave us each $500 dollars for christmas, and I thought it was one of the best christmases

      • EarthenWarrior

        O_O on top of presents or just that….

        • MenacingCascoon

          Just that. It’s usually $250-$350 on top of bad presents because my parents suck at giving gifts.

          • EarthenWarrior

            and you say you’re not rich

          • Daedardus

            …………… I hope you realise how batshit crazy amount of money that is and that although there’s nothing wrong with getting that amount, just know that not everyone has such things in their life.

          • MenacingCascoon

            ? I guess? I still don’t have a switch so they slacking. But I guess I dont need it until Pokemon comes out

      • Daedardus
        • MenacingCascoon

          No my parents are not rich lol. It kinda It’s just Christmas you know. Giving gifts, silly. Go all out on Christmas. It’s about time I get some gifts too. There’s 9 of them (8 kids including me and 2 parents) so I just want to give money so I dont accidentally mess up on something

          • Daedardus

            Not rich, maybe not multimillionaire but I doubt your parents make anything less than six figures together.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      No, I think it’s better than getting something the other person might not want if you aren’t sure what to get them.

    • Daedardus

      Giving money to people who dont make their own is fine (kids, nephews,…), for your working friends just give them personal stuff, they can buy all the things they actually need anyway.

  • ShinyXatu

    So is there a reason why Ultra Necrozma just one-hit KO’d all of my Pokemon and had priority every single time, or do I just suck?

    • EarthenWarrior

      Nuroforce and all buffs

      • ShinyXatu

        Is that some kind of hip and trendy punk rock band?

        • InfinityD4

          Neuroforce Raises the power of Supereffective moves, and also should be.

        • EarthenWarrior

          no it means that Ultra Necrozma is a big pile of bullshite

          • ShinyXatu

            But if I literally can’t land a single hit I don’t understand how anyone ever beat this game.

          • EarthenWarrior

            you need a dark type or priority

          • ShinyXatu

            I just realized, Focus Sash is an answer for getting at least one hit. But I need to stock up on revives, which means I need to leave Megalo Tower. Great stuff.

          • InfinityD4

            Grinding, Grinding could work, maybe get some X items?

          • InfinityD4

            also Quick Claw?

          • ShinyXatu

            I can’t remember the last time I’ve had to grind in a Pokemon game…what is this parallel universe?

          • InfinityD4

            X items might even the playing field since he gets free boosts.

          • InfinityD4

            they were Buffed this Gen too.

          • EarthenWarrior

            maybe gen 4 was the last one

          • ShinyXatu

            This is going to sound crazy but my Focus Sash literally disappeared after the Necrozma fight. I think there’s some kind of bug in the game, I’m not making it up.

          • InfinityD4

            Focus Sash? it disappears after it saves you, in exchange it always activates that one time. unless you meant band.

          • Yeah and sadly Band is a pretty risky item as you have a 1/10 chance of saving 1 hp

          • I was able to beat it fairly easily

          • UnburdenedLegume

            I had max affection with incineroar which saved me twice and in turn allowed me to setup two roto boosts after which i OHKO’ed it with malicious moonsault

    • MenacingCascoon

      It’s bad game design IMO. There’s challenging but thats actually bad game design.
      Stats higher than Arceus+ totem boost+ Ability that boost SE moves (Its moveset is SE 8 types)+ Level 60 (highest level until you fight champ)= it’s totally just bad game design. You have to cheese it honestly.
      Sash+ Toxic+ Heal Spam

      • InfinityD4

        oh crap your right it’s the second straight up stronger than god(the other being both Mewtwo’s who are 26 points better than Ultra Necrozma)

      • Feliz Navidad

        Well I mean plenty of people manage to beat it legit so I’d say it’s more dependant on team which happens when you have over 800 different characters in a game

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      It’s pretty touch actually. That’s why. It was quite the hard battle and if my Decidueye hadn’t kept a single hp for multiple turns I may have been wiped out too

    • Did it use Smart Strike only? That’s why, Smart Strike has Priority unless your also using one and you have a higher speed stat

      • MenacingCascoon

        Smart Strike just doesnt miss. no priority

        • InfinityD4

          IT’S SWIFT!

        • Oh nvm then

          I thought it was Priority

    • LunaMoon

      You probably were cursed by Necrozma’s Evil Eyes.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So I’ve finally started my journey to SR for all the UBs that can be shiny. It’ll be a long journey, bit by the end I’ll have them all. Then maybe I’ll go after the legends. I’ve already caught a small handful of the non legend Pokemon in the wormholes as shinies so I thought I’d try my luck. Got the charm so hopefully it won’t be the worst thing in the world, but there are no guarantees

  • Monkeyfuzz

    @TheLastKurusu:disqus you able to trade today?

    • Atm my DS died and I’m in the car, but once I’m back at home I 100% am ready to go

      I am a tad bit sad only cause I wanted to evolve what I was going to give you, but my DS died before it could 🙁

      It’s a Natu with a Naive nature that I found

      • Monkeyfuzz

        It’s fine, you really don’t have to give me anything. Let me know when you’re ready.

        • Ok I will it should take anywhere from 20-40 mins. (40 if Traffic is super bad, 20 if we have light traffic)

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Alright, I’ll be around, no rush.

  • Well my DS may be dead, but I got Mr.Mime finally and I’m so close to getting Lanturn and Xatu

    Funny how my Chinchou is the same level as my whole team and I need to level it up one above my team to evolve it

    • LunaMoon

      What game are you playing?

      • Ultra Sun

        I caught a random Chinchou as they are rare for my dex

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Quick question: should i buy an eshop wallet code from a european website, would it still work on my 3DS since i dont live in europe anymore? i havent changed my 3ds location if that helps.

    • LunaMoon

      Yes

    • Daedardus

      As long as it is for the region you’re in, then yes.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        what does that mean? so i do need to buy a code thats compatible in the Americas?

        • Daedardus

          No, but if you buy a french code for a dutch eshop, it won’t work.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Oh ok but i live in the Caribbean now, which falls under America i think. So if i buy a dutch eshop code, it wont work despite my 3DS location still being europe?

          • Daedardus

            It will work, but you can’t use a german or french eshop code even though they are in Euros.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            great, thanks 🙂

  • LunaMoon

    I am going to si ng the nations of the world

        1st of all, why was my comment removed?
        2nd of all, I know, i was just joking. I can name at least 150 of the 197/8 countries of the world off the head. Here we gp:
        – United States
        – Canada
        – Mexico
        – Panama

        – Peru
        – Mongolia
        – Albania
        – UK
        – Uganda
        – Togo
        – Tonga
        -Swaziland

        • Daedardus

          I didn’t remove your comment, I’ll check.

          • Daedardus

            Moving did it.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          UK isn’t one country.

          • LunaMoon

            I know but it’s internationally recognized as a union of four smaller countries as one large country.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Ireland isnt part of the UK

          • LunaMoon

            Northern Ireland + Scotland + Wales + England

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Forgot NI cos they’re so irrelevant

          • Daedardus

            Still, the UK is a single country, having one unified government. It’s just not the same as Great Britain which is about the islands it’s made off.

          • Daedardus

            It is lol.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Alright it is a country made up of other countries.

  • ShinyXatu

    There actually is a foolproof way to beat Ultra Necrozma really easily, I just did it. Get a Zoroark, use Toxic the first turn and wait a couple more turns. That’s it.

    • ShinyXatu

      Additional question: should I not have wasted my Focus Sash? I might restart and do it again without using it, since I think I’m capable of it.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Depends if you need it. You can buy more for BP later.

        • ShinyXatu

          Okay so it’s unlimited? I won’t bother then, thanks.

          • Daedardus

            It’s not one time use lol.

          • ShinyXatu

            It is actually, and I can prove it because it disappeared after I fainted from Ultra Necrozma.

          • Daedardus

            What lol, that shouldn’t be happening.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            For Sash it does. Only in competitions like online, online battles or battle tree it doesn’t.

          • Daedardus

            Oh, that’s why i thought it was infinite use. Stupid design :P. reset and keep the sash, it’s a useful online item.

          • Daedardus

            Reminds me of Baton Pass Swords dance speedboost ninjask :O

          • Monkeyfuzz

            You can still buy more for BP later though.

          • ShinyXatu

            Well now that I know it’s unlimited stock, I’ll be getting at least 6 of them anyway. Not going to reset, fight the power.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Aren’t most items now? I think so.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Its so easy to farm BP in these games you can easily buy another Sash after doing 2-3 runs of mantine surf

    • orrr….

      Quick Claw Destiny Knot

      • Monkeyfuzz

      • Daedardus

        Does that work on totems too?

        • hell yeah

          • Daedardus

            What’s the first bonder you can come accros lol? :p

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Gastly I think.

          • Well i used Gardevoir but Gengar works

  • ShinyXatu

    How do people soft-reset for Poipole? They go through the entire Ultra Necrozma battle and then do it all again each time? Screw that.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Just reject poipole and come back later

      • Daedardus

        Brought to you by the datings tip for jerks toolbook.

      • ShinyXatu

        I’ll just wait until Ultra Sun to soft reset for it anyway, I’d like to get Naganadel for the ‘dex.

      Why you spamming though?

      • LunaMoon

        It’s only two comments.

        • Yes but it is totally pointless and leads to no meaningful conversation so it doesnt need to be here

          • Daedardus

            ^^^^^^

          • LunaMoon

            Fine, me and my two comments will take our business elsewhere! Humph! /s

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Verlis is too jokes lmao. Man complains about other poketubers for their clickbait, yet most of his own videos are captioned in big fat capitals yanno.

    • ShinyXatu

      I see only one problem with your argument.

      “Man”

      • UnburdenedLegume

        He has a beard so he at least has some male attributes tho 😛

        • ShinyXatu

          It takes more to be a man than just having a beard!

    • Daedardus
    • LunaMoon

      Didn’t some scandalous event rock Versify and his YT career? Something involving his mother or grandma or grandpa or something around those weird lines?

  • hmmmm… i dont know how im going to do backgrounds and lighting for this piece… maybe ill just stop for tonight? idk…

    • Lucky I haven’t even started yet

      • You probably should fam. The end date is coming up soon.

        It’s best to just start

        • Yeah knowing mine shall be done in colored pencil and Sharpie outline… I don’t have enough access to make art online

          • Well you can still get pencil sketches done.

            Ya know how when you write stuff you never wanna use your first draft? Art is like that. It’s good to correct stuff and make multiple tries at first.

            Art has the benefit that you dont have to put in all the detail for your beginning sketches :3

          • Yeah I may change mine a bit

            It was supposed to be a snow day where Pikachu and co. make snowmen
            -Pikachu and Mimikyu make a snowman together
            -Oshawott finds a Snow Sandygast
            -Rowlet gets spooked when Cosmog lands in its and becomes the snowman’s head
            -Litwick gets confused when it finds an Alolan Sandshrew curled up like an igloo and Sandshrew likes its head out

            But I may change it to just one of these ideas instead

          • I’d just say keep it simple :3

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I forgot my sketch pad and won’t be able to go back for it for a week so I might just crudely draw something on paint.

        • Just get a piece of paper or something lol

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I guess, my sketch pad came vacuum sealed and clean. I have to get some that also feels clean to me. OCD problems :/

  • Oh Monkeyfuzz I’m ready to trade now and almost online

    • Monkeyfuzz

      OK, I’ll be there in a moment.

      • Aww it’s little Oshawott

        Thanks dude!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          NP, it has perfect IVs and some egg moves including Sacred Sword. I was breeding them and though you might like one.

          • Thanks man I love It! I didn’t even know it learned Sacred Sword

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It’s a special USUM egg move. I got it on my Smeargle through Kartana and a wild Smeargle and then bred it through.

          • Thanks man!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Thank you for the Xatu btw, I’m sure I can use it with synchronize at some point.

          • Your Welcome

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Why did they feel the need to turn A Christmas Story into a musical? I’m so confused.

    • They felt the need to turn Spiderman into as musical

      There is no logic to it

    • Me too it looks so weird

      Why is don’t shoot your eye a musical number?

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Why is any of this necessary? It’s just obnoxious and disruptive.

  • Ok so let’s see which idea should I do for PJ art?

    -Litwick confused at Alolan Sandshrew because its in an igloo shape

    -Rowlet shocked that Cosmog has sat atop its snowman

    -Oshawott looking at a Snow Sandygast wondering what’s going on

    -Pikachu and Mimikyu building a snowman

    Which idea should I do?

    • which ever one you see yourself enjoying making the most

      • I can’t decide, mostly torn between Rowlet and Litwick ones

        • Ariel

          I like the Rowlet one a lot!

          • Ok I think I’ll do that then

            Rowlet will look scared and sort of offended because Cosmog wanted to have a bit of fun

    • LunaMoon

      You should draw a Piplup pecking away at a Boldore.

      • Hmm I feel a Piplup opening a stocking and a Roggenrola falling out because it was naughty would be funnier

    • EarthenWarrior

      Draw a bloody corpse in the snow

      • But Mimikyu wouldn’t kill a snowman

        • EarthenWarrior

          …..who wouldn’t try

    • MenacingCascoon

      Lol why are most of these something being shocked. I choose the last one

      • With Litwick its more confused like
        “Wait… Why are you moving? You’re an igloo?”

  • LunaMoon

    Be honest; what are the chances of me finding as Pheramosa shiny without a shiny charm. 0.5? 0.05? 0.0005?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      1 in 4000 ish according to the guy in that building in Heahea.

      • InfinityD4

        1 in 4096 in Gen 7, they doubled the Shiny Rate in XY

      • LunaMoon

        So a 0.025% chance eh.

  • EarthenWarrior

    I gotta be honest I haven’t turned my 3DS on in over a week… I’m just losing my mojo and my 3DS Battery issue has me too afraid to turn it on

    And I’m really having a Skyward Sword craving, mainly the first half when you get to Lanaryu

    • InfinityD4

      how old is it? have you replaced the battery before? they’re like 7-14 bucks on Amazon.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Like 4 years and HEAVILY used (and lots of instances where the battery was drained extensively)

        And no I never replaced a battery but it’s three screws and a simple pop out, just gotta be super careful with choosing a screwdriver

        • Thank you for listening to my warning to pick the perfect one

          Mine all are stripped so I need to still figure out how to open it fully

        • InfinityD4

          A lot of the ones on Amazon(including one I bought but didn’t actually need) come with one.

  • ShinyXatu

    Totem Ribombee is driving me UP THE WALL. It’s been a month so this isn’t a spoiler anymore. If you don’t beat it within the first few turns you’re basically completely screwed. Ultra Necrozma is like a baby goat compared to the ethereal beast that is Totem Ribombee.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Mudsdale crushed it

      • ShinyXatu

        Oh never mind, I got it this time with 2 of Archeops’ Acrobatics. Last time it didn’t work because of a second Quiver Dance.

  • ShinyXatu

    Can someone explain to me why Dragon Claw just beat Blissey in one hit like it was a level 3 Pidgey? Was it a bug? It wasn’t even super effective.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Well despite its overwhelming HP you must take into account level and their piss poor def

      I’ve been slaughtering Blissys in Crystal via gameshark and plenty of them die in one hit

    • LunaMoon

      Why the heck is Blissey not part-Fairy?

      • EarthenWarrior

        It’s a big fat egg,

      • ShinyXatu

        I don’t know, it should be. But there seriously is no way that Dragon Claw could beat Blissey in one hit (quickly) at full health.

      • You want to break the meta?

        It opens weaknesses to Poison and Steel, but gives it STAB Dazzling Gleam

        • EarthenWarrior

          ……are you seriously?
          When have you EVER seen a Blissy attack that wasn’t Counter or Seismic Toss

          • Few, very few

            This would give it a new move to utilize that will never miss

          • EarthenWarrior

            …that’s dumb it’s always
            Stealth Rock
            Soft boiled
            Aromatherapy
            Counter/Seismic Toss/Toxic

            No exceptions

          • LunaMoon

            It’s just stupid for a Fairy type to suddenly lose its Fairy typing at the final evolution, considering they LOOK EXTREMELY SIMILAR and have no physical traits showing them dropping it.

          • Feliz Navidad

            Chansey isn’t Fairy, neither is Happiny. They never have been.

          • LunaMoon

            Oh wait a second Blissey isn’t Clzfairy’s evolution why was I thinking that?

    • Re:Seraph

      10 base def

    • ShinyXatu

      I always like seeing Xatu with shades.

      • I thought this was perfect for it

        The smart glasses, the Lunar theme

        It just fits

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ok I got a fun little question say you had to live in a video game world

    What series would you pick and what level or world you pick

    (Please note that you’re most likely going to have to build your home and need supplies)

    • Daedardus

      The Sims.

      • EarthenWarrior

        But as a god or a pathetic insignificant coded sheep constantly getting trapped in the bathroom or drowning in a pool?

        • Daedardus

          Oh, do we have to abide by controls? I thought we just had to live in the world on our own.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well I mean it kinda goes without saying that elements of the game have a factor

    • Probably Kirby Triple Deluxe and World 1

      Lots of trees and little Waddle Dee’s roaming

      • EarthenWarrior

        Mmmmmm Waddle Dees make…..I’m assuming bland tasteless meat but there’s plenty of them

        • Oh I was meaning for them helping me

          I’d probably attack that bug enemy where you need to hit its shell off

    • EarthenWarrior

      I can’t decide between BOTW Hyrule because let’s face it it’s just so much variety and with plenty of Bokoblins to piss off it wouldn’t be boring

      Or maybe Fallout, me and my brother adore the series and often talked about post apocalyptic scenarios

      Or maybe in the Luncheon Kingdom in Odyssey I do like big food (I wanted those mussels)

      • LunaMoon

        Gerudo Town or Zora’ Domain.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Hmmm my choice of mocha Amazons or seafood…

          Gotta go with a nice 8ft tall Vai

        • ShinyXatu

          Sorry, I change my answer to Zora’s Domain.

          • EarthenWarrior

            You just wanna be close to Sidon

    • MenacingCascoon

      Pokemon of course.
      Probably Slateport City. Next to a contest, Gym is ahead. It’s a pretty nice place. And the music is awesome

    • ShinyXatu

      Golden Sun. Vale.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Jeebus that looks big

    • Persona, but only if I get one (A Persona, I mean).

    • Natale

      FFXV. Altissia

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So apparently on the 28th there’s going to be a special or something that’ll talk about past episodes leading up to the current and then also whats’ to come in the series as well. Maybe we can get a good idea of how much the SM anime seasons has left. If they tease a long arc like the Orange islands/Decolore/BF then that should be telling us enough to know how much we have before a proper announcement of the next gen. If we only see teases of Ula’ula and maybe some small stuff the who knows. The anime has been burning through content left and right and a sudden slow down would be jarring. Unless they have another filler arc that has a TON of content then I can’t imagine what they would fill almost 2 years with.

    • Josh Omega

      We shall see I guess. I think a lot of people are jumping to conclusions right now just because zeraora wasn’t revealed. Some are automatically saying that means gen 7 will last three years and gen 8 won’t come until 2019. 2018 is still very possible same with 2019. We can only wait and see. Either way I expect our first trailer for the switch games at E3 at the latest

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Yeah I’m still on the fence. I’m willing to wait and see before definitively saying anything one way or the other, but things are definitely looking odd. Something has gotta give. Either the anime has to slow down rapidly or the game will be out this year

        • Josh Omega

          Personally I think the games come out late 2018 to early 2019. We shall see. Either way I am planning to try and go in blind and only see the three starters and cover legends. Botw is what made me decide to do this. I managed to remain spoiler free with that game and it was one of the best video games experiences I have ever had. I want that feeling of not knowing what to expect in Pokémon again. The shock of seeing a new Pokémon for first time and being shocked at how my starter evolves

  • Finished every single kingdom’s moon and coins except for the Darker Side and the Mushroom Kingdom

    • EarthenWarrior

      Good luck you gonna need it
      when you get to Darker change the music to Honeylune Escape fits it so much better

    • LunaMoon

      I’m almost done getting all the moons but I’m not daring to get the 100 Volleyball/Jump rope challenges

      • There is a pretty easy glitch you can do to get the jump rope one and the volley ball is actually really easy. Just use 2 player mode and use crappy because he’s faster

        • LunaMoon

          Hey, I really like Cappy! Attack Alolan rotom not that beautiful hat.

  • ShinyXatu

    I finally finished Ultra Moon’s main story! I could have done it weeks ago but I didn’t feel like it for some reason. I love the little animations that happen during the final credits – it brings me back to Drill Dozer for some reason. On to Rainbow Rocket, wormhole shiny hunting, and of course Pokedex completion!

  • Shady

    Give me this Umbreon cub

  • Josh Omega

    Damn us update. Just got the sun flute. But my medicine has me tired so I will continue in the morning. going to hold off on a team update until after I get my final team member which I am getting really close to! So excited to use this particular Pokémon! That said I am off to bed lol

  • Re:Seraph

    1100 encoutners in I got shiny Latias
    ….rash natured…
    Fugg

    • Natale

      • Re:Seraph

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Oh, I had this when I went for Shiny Uxie in Alpha, I reset and got Bold later after a long long time.

    • MenacingCascoon

      • Re:Seraph

  • EarthenWarrior
  • Re:Seraph

      • Re:Seraph

    Yeah Cloyster is SOOO easy to counter

    • Re:Seraph

      Jesus christ that was the dumbest player I’ve ever seen in my fucking life XD
      If they clicked umbreon from square one they would have killed it

      • Re:Seraph

        He be like
        Yo want this W? Here’s my entire fucking team

    • Feliz Navidad

      Because his team was bad

  • Re:Seraph

    Just salted down to 1100 on showdown
    Why does this fucking happen

    • EarthenWarrior

      Happens to me all the time
      But I’m working on my you-know-what strategy and it’s getting better

    • MenacingCascoon

      Battle meeeee

      • Re:Seraph

        Not when im this tilted

        • MenacingCascoon

          This wont make you more mad. Plus it wont eve affect rank

    • Feliz Navidad

      I’m gonna start Showdown again and get rekt ?

      • MenacingCascoon

        Hey did you ever find all the members on that type list?

        • Feliz Navidad

          Yup, I actually got someone for rock which was a surprise and a half

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I actually like quite a few Rock types, it just isn’t close to being my favourite type.

          • Feliz Navidad

            I like individual rock types but I don’t like the type as a whole

          • MenacingCascoon

            Now lets make a tournament

          • MenacingCascoon

            If you dont want to, give me the list and I’ll make it

          • Feliz Navidad

            Don’t know how much people will sign up for it but part of the reason I made this list was so if people pick types again it’s easier so here it is:

          • Feliz Navidad

            Normal – Kuppo
            Grass – Carrot
            Fire – Govnah
            Water – Kurusu
            Electric – Legume
            Bug – Ultron
            Flying – Butter
            Poison – Fairy
            Rock – Chaos
            Ground – Earthen
            Fighting -Alex
            Psychic – Monkeyfuzz
            Ice – Armaggedon
            Ghost – Seraph
            Steel – NintendoChip
            Dark – Shady
            Dragon -Cascoon
            Fairy – Star

          • MenacingCascoon

            Yea probably no one tbh. Maybe 5 people here battle. I’ll make it if most people want it, but it doesnt seem that way. But it is quite an interesting list to look at. And see what people picked

          • Feliz Navidad

            I’ll join depending on when it is, I want to get back into comp so it’s a decent incentovwb

          • Feliz Navidad

            *incentive

          • Fedex

            If you make some kinda tourney I’d be interested to join just let me know when and what :]

          • Re:Seraph

            If you enter it
            I’ll destroy you entirely
            Yes, this is haiku

          • Fedex

            Lets do this fam!

    • Natale

      Common symptoms of playing Showdown:

      1) Literally turning into Earthen

      • MenacingCascoon

        IE: making a update every time something happens on showdown, letting the world know youre salty for losing,
        Next is posting your wins and bragging even if you got lucky/played bad player

        • Re:Seraph

          Here’s this amazing win of me beating a team of six Golisopod

          • EarthenWarrior

            Hey Golisopod is awesome it’s just difficult to use

            Like I say bulky build with SD Leech can work

            I’m experimenting if things like red card can negate EE

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It doesn’t negate it, it might slightly offset the negatives of EE but the ability still activates.

          • Govnah of Destruction

            your just terrible

          • Monkeyfuzz

            You’re back, are you OK? Sorry if I spoiled any of SW for you.

          • Govnah

            it was more personal issues i was dealing with and went a bit over board

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh, well hope it’s resolved or at least better now.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Suck my %#@

          • Govnah

            lol you would like that wouldnt ya

          • EarthenWarrior

            Maybe not from you

          • Govnah

            so dont tell me to do it then

          • EarthenWarrior

            Then quit picking on me

          • Govnah

            Its just who I am.

          • EarthenWarrior
          • Govnah

            right back ya

          • Re:Seraph

            I mean it’s sorta trash and running swords dance on it is basically about as useful as running calm mind on a komala

          • That’s why you don’t set it up its exactly my kind of Pokémon

            No status moves just brute force attacks (I hate using status moves)

          • Status moves help you win though

          • Status moves take up time and waste a move slot

            My in game team almost always has only attacks and status (unless it’s something like protect or those kinds or healing moves like Moonlight)

          • Ok but that doesn’t fly in competitive

          • I add status in competitive, but there is one thing I refuse to do

            4 status moves, as if you get to it being your last Pokémon your dead because it can’t do anything

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Finally finished my Charmander apricorn collection. Still a lot to go to complete my full Apricorn collection. If anyone has any of the new USUM combinations and wants to trade let me know.

  • Re:Seraph

    Okay stopping showdown for today
    I need to retain my sanity somewhat

    • Govnah

      you are the smart one of the showdown duo then

      • Re:Seraph

        Yee, I finished up on a good note so

    • MenacingCascoon

      Oh now you stop without playing with me/ Really feeling the love here

      • Re:Seraph

        I just got dicked like thirty times man. I gotta stop

    • Re:Seraph

      Jesus fucking christ

    • MenacingCascoon

      And I thought Rhyperior couldnt get uglier.
      I was right

    • Govnah

      Earthen during high school

    • Introducing mr. pedoperior

    • EarthenWarrior

      you kunt

    • Feliz Navidad

      You’re definitely improving but your drawings are very flat, which is okay for concept art (useful, even) but not so much for showcase art. Although that’s hard to do so all you can do is improve dude 😀

      • True, I know there’s still much to do, but I am proud I finally came up with a drawing for Womberry that I like (The Legs were the problem so he sat down this time to make it easier to do)

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I finally did some shopping and all remains is two people

    • MenacingCascoon

      Me and whoelse?

      • EarthenWarrior

        nope that diseased alpaca carcass is scheduled to arrive a little after the 25th

    • Feliz Navidad

      My family will get cards and they’ll damn well like it

  • Ok?… someone explain this to me and tell me if I’m wrong that its stupid
    http://www.animemaru.com/smogon-bans-pikachu-from-pokemon-anime/

    • Like what does it mean “Pikachu’s banned from the anime”? This doesn’t make any sense to me at all

    • Daedardus

      It’s a joke about how Pikachu is too strong in the anime and they crossreferenced a fake Smogon decision as the punchline.

      • Oh… alright then, that’s probably why I was so confused

        At first I thought either Ash hat Pikachu was banned or Ash was going to lose Pikachu

  • Feliz Navidad

    Christmas, a time for family. What do you think your role is in the Pokejungle family?

    • The youngest child who asks many questions as he understands nothing

      • Earthen is probably the grumpy dad or uncle

        • Daedardus

          Earthen is the uncle that makes all those silly jokes and laughs too hard at them.

          • EarthenWarrior

            =__=

          • Oh that’s cute

          • EarthenWarrior

            no….it’s morbidly appalling

    • Daedardus

      Bossy mom.

      • Feliz Navidad

        You’re not my real MOM

    • I’m a gay sister who everyone is slightly disappointed in because I want to do art and not something that would make…. money

      • Daedardus

        You’re so not going out in that dress, you hear that, lady!

        • Shut up mom I can do what I want

          • Feliz Navidad

            Not with those shoes child

          • Fuuck off I payed 200 dollars for these

          • Feliz Navidad

      The forgottn/avoided one. Sass level probably too high here to be listened to

    • Monkeyfuzz

      The one that merely exists.

    • ShinyXatu

      Probably the weird cousin who keeps trying to talk about conspiracy theories at the dinner table.

      • Feliz Navidad

        Who made the pyramids cuz?

        • ShinyXatu

          It was the Annunaki my man.

    • Feliz Navidad

      Bitchy uncle who judges you and appears to have obvious favorites but low key actually loves everyone and wants them to do their best

      • Fedex

        Great! Maybe I’ve misunderstood you and you’re quite nice after all!

    • Fedex

      I’d say I’m the adventurous warrior of the Jungle.

      • What the hell does that mean
        Sit down at the table and eat your peas

        • Fedex

          You’ll have to give me more than peas to sit me down, sister!

          • You’re adopted you bitch stop making a scene. We’re trying to have a nice dinner for one

          • Fedex

            With that attitude you’re not getting deserts, how disappointing!

          • Everyone else here just wants to have dinner. This is why you weren’t invited to Christmas last year

    • EarthenWarrior

      pretty much designated crap and ridicule receptacle

      • Fedex

        Naah. A better description of you is I’d say the Jungler who is tough,resilient in character and someone who likes to take risks and enjoy life.

      • You’re low key one of my favorites

        • Feliz Navidad

          Earthen’s one of my highkey favorites because he’ll say whatever he wants and he has those rare sweet moments

          • EarthenWarrior

          • Feliz Navidad

            Earthen is a low key sweetheart

  • ShinyXatu

    I CANNOT post the image for some reason, but late last night I found a shiny Sigilyph in the Ultra Wormhole! I just unlocked it yesterday so I consider this to be a great achievement. It’s also Docile nature which doesn’t seem all too bad. Don’t forget, it’s Psychic/Flying like a certain green bird, meaning I’ve always liked it a lot!

    • MenacingCascoon

      Sucks disqus being weird, Thts an amazing shiny too! I would train it and use it in RR since I know you just beat thegame

      • ShinyXatu

        Thanks, I love it too! I’ll keep trying until I get Drapion, that’s my goal for sure. I was actually going to ask a question about that, I’ve read that if I wanted to hunt shiny Stakataka yet also unlock Rainbow Rocket I could catch one Stakataka and kill the other one, then return later to shiny hunt the remaining one? Does anyone know anything about this before I do something stupid?

        • MenacingCascoon

          You dont have to kill it. What Im doing is Ty to find the first one. Not shiny then SR then encounter first again not shiny RE. so on.
          Personally Im gonna use a team of 6 shiny legends for RR it would be pretty fun

          • ShinyXatu

            So you’re saying I can run away from both of them, unlock and beat RR, then come back and have another shot at them being shiny? That doesn’t make much sense to me.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Well you would have to SR after you encounter both. So it resets the UB’s odds again

          • ShinyXatu

            There was a guy on Gamefaqs who said he caught one, killed the other one, beat RR and came back to soft reset for the one he killed, and claimed that he was able to find the shiny. This is possible or not?

        • TheNintendoChip

          Not sure…
          I’m at that part in the game, and I did some testing. The only thing I’ve concluded is that if you run away from both Stakataka, the “mission” ends. I don’t know if you can go back and get them though after doing RR — I don’t want to lose them for good on accident.

          • ShinyXatu

            All I know is that they keep respawning after you run away or knock them out until you catch both, but you have to exit the area of course. In an ideal world, I’d like to catch one for the pokedex and save the other one for later to soft reset, but I’m hearing mixed reports about whether it’s possible. I don’t want to wait until I finish soft resetting (which may never happen) to unlock Rainbow Rocket.

          • TheNintendoChip

            That’s exactly what I wanted to do too. I’ll see if running away from both, then exiting and coming back will let you get them again.
            They’re encounters in Poni Grove (so it’s not like they have an overworld that you interact with). I think the first two encounters are always the UB, and then the mission ends, but I’m not sure if they’ll come back or not if I leave and come back.

          • ShinyXatu

            Thank you, however my main question beyond that is whether that resets the shiny odds or not. Apparently this did work for someone, and I guess I can take their word for it since they made the topic asking about it in the first place.

          • TheNintendoChip

            So when the mission ends, you’re transported back home and then immediately thrown into the RR story. So I can’t fly back and see if they reset or not.
            I don’t see why it would change the odds…do they have greater odds during the mission?

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well i steamrolled the E4 in Crystal
    Feraligatr 52
    Donphan 50
    Ursaring 51
    Crobat 51
    Heracross 50
    Pupitar 51

    definitely gonna do some RES but maybe try to find a better randomizer

    • Feliz Navidad

      Pupitar being a late Evo keeps me up at night

      • EarthenWarrior

        true dat and the sheer fact that they made this thing severely late makes me all the more angry

        yeah Mt. Makes sense but maybe just maybe they could’ve made Larvitar be available in Mt. Mortar at like a 1% rarity

        I’m glad i got one as early as Headbutt because not only is having a decent Rock type really good for any in-game team but its one of my unacknowledged favorites and i feel the best way to really bond is to use it right in the beginning and yadda yadda i love this cute little dino bug

        • Govnah

          you are always angry

          • EarthenWarrior

            And this is news how?

        • Feliz Navidad

          Should’ve been a rare Mt Mortar who that evolves at Level 25-30 and then Level 50 imo

        • Houndour, Murkrow, Misdreavus and Sneasel also should have been rare instead if none existent (Granted Sneasel moved in Crystal, but that’s beside the point)

      • Zwelious keeps me up at night

        Latest evolving Pokémon in the game

        • Monkeyfuzz

          At least it has evolved once. Larvesta is the worst for evolution level.

          • Feliz Navidad

            ^This, so much.

    • Fedex

      I’ll probably start my sillver soon

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Looking forward to the anime New Year’s 2-hour special next week. They promised to showcase information for whats in store in 2018 in regards to the anime. Hopefully some captures and evolutions soon because it cant go on like this

    • EarthenWarrior

      Splain?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        what?

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Inb4 it is only the last 30 seconds of the show that has new footage.

    • I wish the season didn’t end in the US…

  • Feliz Navidad

    Volcarona should’ve of been a pseudo and we should’ve had a cocoon like middle evo to the line

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Volcarona is still perfection

    • Natale

      Yeah

      Bug pseudo

      That sounds cool :0

      • UnburdenedLegume

        We’ve only had 1 non-dragon pseudo so far. Hopefully gen 8 introduces another

        • Armaggedon16

          2..

        • Sunniera 2.0

          I hope that you forgot Metagross and not Tyranitar.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Metagross is in my top 5 favorite mons how can i forget it :O

          • Sunniera 2.0

            I hope that you Tyranitar as more highly ranked than Metagross.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            I like TT a lot but it doesnt make my top 5. Probably top 15 tho

    • Ultron

      True. Still an amazing mon

  • Feliz Navidad

    Seeing how the family comment got discussion revved up, what would your role be in a Pokejungle pantheon?

    • Armaggedon16

      Idk what that is

      • InfinityD4

        A Pantheon is a set of Gods in a Polytheistic Religion. Also a Roman-Temple-Turned-Church, not to be cpnfused with the Parthenon, which is a former temple of Athena in Greece.

  • Sunniera 2.0

    It has been a tough week because of last exams that can’t be called finals because of Hurricane Irma but are still treated like Finals. However, after tomorrow I will finally be free of this semester and can once again pick up UM. I am kind of glad that they released the 3rd Gen on Pokémon Go. It has made walking around campus more enjoyable. I am quite glad with my roster as is. Despite breaks that lasted between 3 and 6 months I have plenty of strong Pokémon.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      My best in GO has like 1025 CP lol i hardly play it

      • Sunniera 2.0

        It probably has to do with my area. I lived at and now near a college campus so there is a *beep* ton of Pokestops.

    • My highest is my 1940CP Rhydon, Killa Drilla

      My top 6 is
      Rhydon, Ursaring, Arcanine, Starmie, Houndoom and Vileplume

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I am holding off on a Vileplume and Bellossom (even though I have 450 Oddish candies and a Sun Stone because I want one with near perfect IVs) because I have been unlucky with my catches. So that is something you have over me!

        • I have good luck with Oddish oddly enough

          I always find them with like 400 to 900 cp

    • LunaMoon

      You should force your Exeggutor to learn neckcerizes.

  • ShinyXatu

    I don’t know what to do about Christmas…I’ve never really given gifts before but have always been given big gifts by my parents, and now that I have all of this money of my own I would feel guilty if I got the PSVR I asked for and gave nothing in return. None of us are that close and I just don’t know what they would like. Any advice for me during this moral dilemma?

    • MenacingCascoon

      Give them a gift card to their favorite food places.Or maybe give some pajamas. You can also never go wrong with a jacket

  • The Butter Grinch
    • LunaMoon

      ….Or maybe they’re discussing about the arts of Joy-Cons.

    • Natale

      Repost cuz reasons:

      What so F*CK YEAH about that? This doesn’t show anything that interesting other than Z-Moves coming back ( which is obvious) and…. the fact that it uses joy cons? idk

      • The Butter Grinch

        A main series pokemon game where you throw Poke Balls with motion controlling sounds frickin awesome!

        • Daedardus

          Yeah, like Wii Sports! Everyone still loves that game!

          • LunaMoon

            Wii don’t!

        • Natale

          … really? If anyone still uses that lol

  • LunaMoon

    I think they should make Gen 8 based off of a NON-EXISTING country, you know, one that died off long ago. Siam, Yugoslavia, Abyssinia, Kampuchea, Rhodesia, Aztec Empire, the Ottoman Empire, Zanzibar, so on…I’m serious.

    • The Butter Grinch

      Why tho?…

    • Feliz Navidad

      Nah, unless the game takes place in the past as well (which it won’t)

      • LunaMoon

        They should have it be that you awake 100 years after the main game and have to look for memories of you doing the gyms.

    • Natale

      That’s confusing like, you mean in a cultural way? Cuz in a territorial way that just ridiculous lol

      But why would they do that instead of doing real and more recognizable countries and regions?

      • LunaMoon

        Because there are no good countries in the world except of course Finland, Canada, Norway, Slovenia, Vietnam, Argentina, Chile and Cuba.

        • Natale

          I like how this barely answer my question because some of these countries are recognizable enough to be a Pkm region :p

          • LunaMoon

            Sure but it’d be nice if we explore a current region that was once an old region based off an old country.

        • Carrrot

          What about Australia or New Zealand?

          • LunaMoon

            New Zealand yes, but ehh to Australia.

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • Daedardus

      Seems more baseless speculation rather than inside information?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Seems like it but JynxClub is a reliable account even though this particular rumor doesnt come from them

    • The Butter Grinch

      UR L8

      • Govnah

        Rude much?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I have a life and dont lurk on twitter 24/7 for alleged rumors about a game we know nothing about

        • The Butter Grinch

          good for you

    • Sunniera 2.0

      I appreciate your L8ness, this is news to me.

  • Well guys say happy birthday to my little Lilly https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9a3bc4bfb39d07309674417dcdd765b249cbb3adac7918f090c6eb0568e1be65.jpg

    She’s 5 years old, and her 3 year with us. I’m so thankful for her and that I can give her a good home after her first 2 terrible years of life

  • MenacingCascoon

    I’m on phse 3 of shiny Timid UB Burst.
    Phase 1 non timid shiny blacephalon
    Phase 2 was a Bold shiny Trumbeak.
    It’s annoying how it’s not timid. I swear Sync never works. 50% more like 5%

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Am I the only one who thinks the use of the Joycons for throwing Pokeballs and doing the Z move dances is not that amazing of an idea? I can’t imagine myself wanting to do it like EVERY time. Like most of the time I’ll be using a pro controller when playing on TV and when I’m on the go the Joycons will be attached to the Switch anyway. It’s a fun gimmick, but I can’t see myself doing it more than a handful of times.

    • No.
      It sounds like a pointless gimmick they shouldn’t be wasting their dev time on

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Yeah that’s what I was thinking…..

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Sounds like something they would do, but it would be optional. They would more likely do it for the Z-moves. This is the opinion of someone who has yet to touch a Switch so I am not sure how the Joycons are handled.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Well yeah it’d be optional. They won’t get rid of the normal ways of doing it. It’s just seems like a gimmick that many won’t use very often if ever.

    • Natale

      They’d probably give us the chance to throw the Ball just by selecting it really. But I can see GF actually implementing that really

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I noticed that you end all of your sentences with really, moo. Some people might wonder if you really mean really or if you just end your sentences that way, moo. Please let me know…moo!

        • Natale

          Never expected someone to notice that lol, it’s just a thing I do and don’t know why I do it really

    • LunaMoon

      It’s stupid they’re making such a simple technique being forced to use motion controls, it’ll make catching legendaries more gruelling.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I mean you likely won’t HAVE to do it that way. It’ll be like normal if the cons are attached I imagine. It’ll be just an extra thing .

        • LunaMoon

          OK good, cuz if they did, I would just give up on shiny hunting/Pokedex completing COM.PLETE.LY.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I mean why would they make it something you’d have to do? lol Obviously it’d be optional. I was just saying it’s something I can’t see myself using ever.

          • LunaMoon

            Me too. I’d rather catch a shiny Haunter than it.

    • The Butter Grinch

      I’m 90% sure it won’t be mandatory

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I never said I thought it would be mandatory…..Is that what it sounded like? I feel like that’s what everyone thought I meant. hahaha I mean it’s like a gimmick that I’d never use.

  • Finished my holiday art :3

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I’ll hold off from watching this. I’d rather just play it for myself honestly. Especially since the story is likely the normal DBZ story.

      • Govnah

        it isnt actually XD

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Well in that case I really don’t want to watch hahaha I’d rather experience it for myself

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Idk why I felt the need to put “hahaha” in that post…….

  • Govnah

    HD rumble where you feel the rustle of the tall grass (and jimmies)

    • The Butter Grinch

      You can feel the Ice Cubes during hail

      • Govnah

        u ruined it go, i dont like u anymore

        • The Butter Grinch

          did u ever tho

  • HOLY FUUUUCK

    HD RUMBLE POKEMON AMIE

    YOUR JOYCONS ACTUALLY MELT WHEN YOU TOUCH MAGCARGO

    • The Butter Grinch

      Actually would be neat if we could feel the scales/fur

    • LunaMoon

      And they’d rumble sporadically when you try to pet an electric type.

    • Govnah

      thats not rumble tho, you distilled water looking girl

    • No idea what your going on about

    • Natale

      And it gives you a deadly Electric shock when you touch Pikachu too!

      Kids are gonna love it :3

      But seriously that’s a thing that’ll most likely appear on switch

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well i hate my brother again, he thinks that the whole Net Neutrality outrage is just one gigantic emotional pandering panic to win media
    that anyone voicing their displeasure (mostly celebrities) are just doing it for some alternative motive

    i really just want to punch him in his big fat brainwashed stoner face

    • Govnah

      how was the internet before Net Neutrality

    • The Butter Grinch

      D O I T

      • EarthenWarrior

        as much as i want to i’ll most likely get punched back and he has a boney fist

    • is your brother Ajit Pai?

      • EarthenWarrior

        nope just a brainwashed quasi-intellectual impossibly skeptical stoner jerkass who only sees the world as a unsalvageable mess

        he legitimately only feels that this is a issue because people might have to pay a little more for bundles or lanes

          • EarthenWarrior

            but slightly worse, he yaks on and on and on and i can never gain any kinda leverage in any discussion and i end up feeling stupid and defeated

            Every time I see his face I am filled with rage. I haven’t felt this way about anyone. Not even Trump, and that is saying a lot for me.

          • He looks like a legit pile of sh*t

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Well this is a pile of *beep* that I will gladly punch if given the opportunity and without foreseeable repercussions.

          • Natale

            Woah Kurusu you went too far.

            Don’t insult piles of shite like that .

          • Oh right my bad… 🙁

            I forgot those things have feelings too

          • Sunniera 2.0

            That was Kurusu, I have been quite busy recently because I didn’t realize that Kurusu has changed their name. Are you also someone that I am familiar with Natale?

          • Feliz Navidad

            That’s Kuppo dude

            Now I know what felt back then when you changed your profile name every 5 seconds

          • That’s Kuppo

            I’m also switching back soon for Christmas

          • Natale

            I might be

            F*Ck that guy to the max

        • Govnah

          lol people told me the bundles are false

          • TheReece25

            It has happened elsewhere… Why are you going by what people are telling you and not researching yourself? You are on the web rn.. use it

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Soon enough you won’t be able to. (Dramatic music).

            (But seriously take TheReece25’s advice to heart).

          • Govnah

            Fun fact i did research it lol. dont get all salty with me because i happen to say something you didnt like

          • TheReece25

            What are you even talking about kid? I only told you a Fact.. it happens elsewhere which your original comment seemed oblivious of. Also you have asked several questions which, to anyone else, would make it seem as if you haven’t done your own research. Especially that part where you say “lol people told me.. ” 0_0

          • Govnah

            but sir you cant believe everything on the internet O.O

        • TheReece25

          So wait.. are your for or against net neutrality.. because it being taken away is a giant mess.
          Plus.. your brother sounds like the future leader of a Pokemon villain gang 0_0

          • EarthenWarrior

            I am extremely for net neutrality
            i want a free equal internet that everyone has the same IPS and get things at same rate

            otherwise rich a-holes can just buy their way to having things that everyone can’t have faster or easier

          • Feliz Navidad

            Um Earthen

            That’s what happens even with Net Neutrality. Hardware is still a huge limitation, it’s just that the removal of NN will make it much, much worse

          • TheReece25

            Well that’s his point
            People like to say those things didn’t happen before NN.. but times are changing.. and I’m guessing the only reason they didn’t is because they didn’t feel safe to back then. At least not as safe as the Republicans have Officially made it.

          • EarthenWarrior

            which now further bolsters my newfound belief why even freaking bother, nothing gets better and it never will, that anyone voicing their displeasure is just because somebody put them up to it or its for themselves

            i truly don’t know what to believe in anymore

          • Feliz Navidad

            Um, no. Things do get better. But things also get worse. Earthen, if either of us were born even a few decades ago we’d be treated like crap for different reasons.

    • TheReece25

        I mean, they even told they were working on Pokémon Switch before their 3DS games even released…

        • Feliz Navidad

          I’m joshing dude, hence the eyes :p

    • LunaMoon

      I wonder how they’re going to top BOTW…

    • Daedardus

      SHOCKING NEWS OMG WOW!!! Who would think people paid to work with a permanent contract would get new projects after their old one finished? Nintendo really is doing genuis’ effort.

    • Feliz Navidad

      Apologise to Ziggy for the insult

    • Govnah

      you guys really beat a dead horse

      • I by “dead horse”, you mean Ajit Pai, then yes, we do want to beat him

      • Natale

        Ziggy or Ajit

      • I’m in a joking mood

    • Daedardus

      That’s not shovel knight, that’s a joke NPC.

      • Natale

        Wait..

        What? Really?

        • Daedardus

          Yeah, there’s this enemy in the game that are just SK but with a catfish head and they make fun of you.

      • Well, s**t. I knew he looked familiar

    • MenacingCascoon

      Im deead! Send me the link to this

  • Feliz Navidad

    So like obviously we were speaking about Net Neutrality which upset. Alit of people but what’s everyone’s greatest part of 2017 so far?

    • Govnah

      everything that made people upset

    • Daedardus

      In gaming. Switch. In my life? Everything!

    • The Butter Grinch

      Some good movies and TV shows
      Ultra Moon was pretty fun

    • LunaMoon

      To watch Guzma fall and break his back as he fell out of the portal.

    • Natale

      All these great Nintendo switch games that I don’t have enough money to buy and all these music that I’ve discovered that doesn’t make my life such a waste (((o(*゚▽゚*)o)))

    • Josh Omega

      That I am not with my psycho ex anymore plus I got a switch

  • Well CUT has moved back to his home in Pokémon heaven and I’m back, but he may return one day

    • Govnah

      nah i rather not see CUT again

    • LunaMoon

      Is CUT an acronym for something? Carbonated Uranium Toys?

      • No at age 7, I caught a Bidoof as my first ever capture and since I didn’t know there were lowercase letters and I forgot the E. It was CUT the Bidoof

  • TheReece25

    To all upset about NN’s loss. I suggest becoming a well researched conspiracy theorist. Not a looney.. Don’t watch Alex Jones.. He’s a double agent. But, think about it.
    Trump Didn’t win the popular vote…
    Meaning he didn’t get the most votes…
    Electoral college decided 4 us.
    A bunch of creepy old people in each state we know nothing about and have never seen.
    Because of some old outdated system We never even voted for..
    Next.. All it takes is a little research to see that Everyone and their grandmother was against NN’s removal. Even many Republican’s.. they are just the fall guys for everyone to point their finger at and blame.
    Yet it Still went through. We lost NN.
    Why?
    Because our opinions and votes are an Illusion.
    Media is only around to brainwash us. Get us use to their next idea for us. And make us Feel as if we are winning each time when They really are. Or if they can’t do that.. they choose a common enemy in plain sight we can all point blame at. Ie Republican this time.
    Don’t give up.. loose hope. Just knowing this means no one can ever play you again.
    The system is a joke.
    I’ll leave you this: Research “Lee Harvey Oswald Patsy quote” The Man who allegedly Assassinated John F. Kennedy (who was supposedly about to reveal something big about our government) he was a well known communist.
    Everyone hated communist at the time.
    He claims he was a patsy.. and killed no one..
    It’s chilling

    • LunaMoon

      I suggest the U.S to move towards a European/Canadian model, proportional representation, remove the undemocratic Electoral Collage.

    • Govnah

      Media brainwashes people to hate many of our politicians so its nothing new

      • Ultron

        Or they do it themselves by being sh*tty self serving people..?

        • Govnah

          well thats what u think lol.

          • Ultron

            No it’s been shown over and over again. A lot of the people “supporting us” really just support themselves. Look at the new tax “cut” they’re trying to pass off as being good “for the people.” Yeah, good for the rich people aka them, not us.

  • The Butter Grinch

    How has everyone not moved to Canada yet?

    • Govnah

      because not everything is bad here?

      • The Butter Grinch

        Yet
        (((Trump has still 3 years in office left)))

        • Please… He’ll likely get kicked to the curb within the next 2 years

          • Govnah

            ha will he tho?

          • At this rate seeing how many people suspect scandals rn and with all this other stuff

            The only thing that really could boost him in any way is if he is able to take out North Korea

          • TheReece25

            Noooo… I don’t want him touching this touchy subject. Trump is dangerously ignorant and can only serve to further upset them!

          • I think we should take KJU out of office or Russia and China should coax them away from developing nukes further

          • TheReece25

            He’ll more likely be too exhausted from all the McDonald’s daily to move forward

        • Govnah

          oh my god you dont even live in america all you know is what the news is saying, Im not for trump but if u do some research you can see half the sh!t media says is basically false and not true at all. get your facts straight

          • LunaMoon

            Saying that the media is fake news is pretty much a stupid way in trying to deny the truth…

          • Govnah

            Never said fake news tho 😛 but you gotta understand when news has a political side they support they will do what they can to make the other side look worse

          • LunaMoon

            Meh, I may be politically fairly centre-left/left-wing but I certainly know what not to use as news (Example: Fox News, Buzzfeed), and usually depend on more neutral news like Reuters or Politico, so if they’re saying something, I usually believe them. Of course unless if it’s an opinion piece.

          • TheReece25

            Depends on who you ask.. and many would agree, who live in America, it going to Sh*t. It’s so apparent people from other countries can see with their own eyes relatively accurately.

          • Govnah

            eh is it really tho? except FCC repealing the NN what else has happened?

          • TheReece25

            …… I’m fine.

          • Govnah

            yea because u cant think of anything 🙂

          • TheReece25

            Are you like.. 12 yrs old. Only listening to what Drumpf supporting mommy and daddy say. Is that how you pick your sides? Lol. No. I refuse to talk to you from this point on wards.. because you clearly have yet to grow the mental capacity to handle me, and the world that is Really around you. Continue to live in your lala land, waving your daddies red white n blue flag high, shouting ‘Merica! While kids of different nations surpass you. You one dimensional little ….ugh. Good day

          • Ultron

            Calm down, reece…lol

          • TheReece25

            Bu… But….. Ok. I’m done tho ?

          • Govnah

            Lol look mr let me make fun of someone for thinking different then me

          • Ultron

            You really want to go there? I really don’t think you do.

          • Govnah

            Most people look at the bad stuff that happened instead of the good stuff

          • I try to steer from politics for a lot

            So other than politics life is good

          • Ultron

            Because most of us live in reality.

          • TheReece25

            Ignore them.. no use fighting with a delusional little brat.

          • Other than Trump nothing

            And it’s still possible for NN to stay if the courts do there part and think NN should stay

          • TheReece25

            Yes but the list Under Trump.. and Why he is Bad.. is pretty lengthy. Which is what the other poster remains ignorant of. But whatever tho.

          • Govnah

            but he has also done some good for this country 🙂

          • Name one thing… ?

            I’m being serious, I want to hear your view on it

          • TheReece25

            Just ignore them.. ok whatever

          • Govnah

            like a certain fellow jungler said, do your research you are on the web ya know?

          • I know what he does, I know he’s taken some stupid actions, but I can admit he probably hasn’t done all 100% bad. Sure he isn’t great, but hey I’m more a neutral party

            I don’t like to judge unless given a very good reason to or if it personally affects me

          • Govnah

            like i said im not trump my mommy and daddy were both pro clintion :P. im a 19 year old boy who just happens to have different opinions then you guys. yet i get hated on for doing that? getting called a brat and saying i live in my own world? like man. like i dont have enough dealing with real life people treating me different now you guys will? you realize that hurts right?

          • I’m not hating, I respect your opinion even if I slightly disagree with you

            I’m sorry if I have hurt you my friend, I wish no I’ll will towards anyone.

          • Govnah

            listen im not saying anything i say is facts my friend. but still i should have more respect towards what i said before then being called Delusional or not in reality?

          • I never said those things tho?

            Besides people are people you just gotta roll in your own way and stick to your beliefs

            People will say things, but remember just because the world doesn’t agree with you doesn’t mean it’s right to call you names. Your a respected and valued Jungler through and through

        Plus it’s fun.

        • Natale

          Yeah it’s fun

          Especially when people get overly aggresive at each other :I

        • Re:Seraph

          No its not
          It causes nothing but arguing

  • LunaMoon

    Let’s see, what would happen if EVERY single Clinton voter moved to Canada:
    Clinton voters: 65,853,516
    Canadian citizens: 35,151,728
    Most likely cities that Americnas would head to: Missiauga, Toronto, London, Windsor, Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Victoria, Ottawa, Montréal.
    Canada after the addition of the clinton voters:
    101,005,244
    % of the new Canada population Canadian: ~35%
    % of the new Canada population American: ~65%

    So Canada would immediately become a majority American country, and most likely would shift to the right because of this, politically (The US is fairly more right-wing than Canada overall). Most likely independent movements in Quebec would pick up speed as most likely the new American arrivals wouldn’t really try to speak French and they’d get upset about that. Also, considering the U.S hated any British influence over their land, they’d demand Canada to exit the Commonwealth.
    So yeah, Canada would go from a bilingual constitutional monarch, at a safe and low 35 million population, to a staggering 101 million, majority Americans, and turn into most likely a republic like the U.S. This isn’t mean to be anti-American but yeah, you could see the issues with all the Clinton voters who hypothetically move here.

  • LunaMoon

    Eh forget all that politic mumbo jumbo I said let’s talk about some other stuff.

    • TheReece25

      I finally got a new 3DS charger.. gonna finally finish US soon! ?

  • ShinyXatu

    I’m going to make some baseless and not-so-baseless predictions about “Zelda 2020” since that’s a big news story right now.
    -Release: probably 2021.
    -Will make complete use of HD Rumble and technically be the Switch’s first and (possibly only) exclusive 3D Zelda game. Aonuma said he wanted to use those features but couldn’t.
    -Will rely heavily on BoTW’s engine but run at better than 30FPS most of the time and have better visual fidelity, since it doesn’t have to cut corners for the Wii U.
    -Possible return to a concept from early BoTW development…alien invasion? That would be crazy enough to warrant a Majora’s Mask-like apocalyptic story. It’s no coincidence that there are aliens in that game as well.
    -Stronger focus on masks, further connecting to MM.
    -optional Skyward Sword-like motion controls
    -Hyrule includes artificial portals to the alien world which is merging with Hyrule
    -Completely baseless prediction: there will be other alien species that Link encounters on his journey which fight the alien menace, which are very very very VERY distant relatives to the four species from BoTW (Goron, Gerudo, Zora, Ruto). They evolved and left Hyrule millions of years ago

    • Daedardus

      >release 2021

      What?

      • Feliz Navidad

        He doesn’t have 2020 vision

      • ShinyXatu

        I mean, it’s easier to call it that because it’ll probably be the first ZELDA game to come out in that decade.

        • Daedardus

          Then you’d say 2020s.

          • ShinyXatu

            Alright, I put an s on the end. Why don’t you just ban me, Mr. Bantissimo?

        • Sunniera 2.0

          You heard it first here folks! ShinyXatu makes the strong prediction that there Zelda will be the first new game of the decade and will come out on 2021, thus no new games will be released on 2020. Everyone prepare for Doomyear. It may be If Trump is re-elected (sorry for the the political jab).

          • ShinyXatu

            I also fixed that, thanks so much for your concern friend…

            It gets waaaaay worse

  • Sunniera 2.0

    So I know this is a trite topic but does anyone have any suggestions on how to improve hail. I don’t think Gamefreak will improve Ice types anytime soon, but they did make some progress with Aurora Veil. I have been thinking that maybe they could have the Sp. Def of Ice types boosted in Hail (another obvious one) and have Dark types benefit from hail. Not sure how but every other weather has had multiple types benefiting from its effects. For Rain, it is Water Types but Electric and Flying types also get some benefits as well. For Sun, both Fire and Grass types get a boost. And Sandstorm helps out Rock, Steel, and Ground types. Any thoughts?

    • InfinityD4

      They could make it Def in contrast to the Rock only Sp.Def boost in Sandstorm

    • Ice, Dark and maybe ghost should benefit from hail

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I was thinking that as well, but Ghost already has a lot of similarities offensively with Dark types (They both hit Ghost and Psychic types for SE damage). And with the added Fairy weakness I think that Dark types need a little bit extra added to their niche when compared to Ghost types.

    • Feliz Navidad

      I think Ice should get a Defense boost in hail, because they need more help with defense than special defense

      Besides that, maybe make another type take no (or less) damage from Hail

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I guess. From a quick glance over of the Ice types we have now it seems like that more of them have a greater defense than special defense. Regardless, more of them may benefit from the Defense boost considering that three of their weaknesses (Rock, Steel, and Fighting) lean towards Pokémon with Physical movesets.

    • LunaMoon

      I think they should shorten the hail damaging and just automatically take out a few without any messages.

    • Re:Seraph

      Ice types instantaneously die in hail

      • Re:Seraph

        *flying not ice
        Though ice is more realistic for gf

      • Sunniera 2.0

        For whatever reason, I think that both Gamefreak and you share a distaste of Ice types.

      • Natale

        They don’t faint

        They DIE

        • Sunniera 2.0

          They gain Ghost STAB?

          • Natale

            Yeah… Hail is very intricate weather

    • Armaggedon16

      50% boost to def to ice types.
      More abilities that benefit in hail
      Ice Attacks have 1.5x more power.

      The reason for having both the defence and attack boost is because like you mentioned hail only benefits Ice while sun, rain, and sand have a lot of other uses.

    Can I just say how much I love the digimon tri movies? I love the fact that they did something with the original cast and they they are giving everyone their own Megas besides just tai and Matt. Seriously excited at the final three movies coming out next year. And I have to ask. How did a political post happen like an hour ago lol besides net neutrality idk why it would be brought u ohere :/ quite honestly as someone who tries to stay in the middle I think there are problems with both the right and the left. And quite honestly in last years election we didn’t have a good choice. It was pretty much pick your poison. Can we just accept that bad hope we get better choices in 2020? That’s all I am going to say in that

    • Armaggedon16

      Tri was a huge missed opportunity. The only thing they have going for them is nostalgia sadly.

      • Josh Omega

        I am enjoying it so far personally. Bought confession over weekend and I am marathoning all of them today.

        • Armaggedon16

          My main problem is the pacing. I’ve watched 5 movies and the pacing is so terrible, plus by the end of the 5th movie the plot is all over the place and i don’t think one last movie will be enough to save it.
          Then there’s the issue with the 02 kids. No mention at all. Digimon Emperor and Imperialdramon appear? And everyone’s reaction? Let’s just beat it.
          And ofcourse, how bad of a character meiko is.

          • Josh Omega

            I will admit the whole 02 kids missing is strange. That said they can keep Davis away lol idk his character has always aggravated me. Probably now he instantly became leader in 02 when I feel TK should have been the leader since he had more experience in the digital world. I am mainly just happy to see the original digidestined back though and that’s nostalgia as you said. And I will reserve full judgement once I see them all dubbed since that’s the voices I am used to even though some of the actors changed

          • I thought they killed them off in the beginning of the first movie

          • No one’s gonna say anything about this?

          • MenacingCascoon

            I totally agree. It’s like 02 in that aspect its introducing so much but doesnt know which one it wants to actually make the story. I just dont understand it. Theres so many questions, and such confusion

    • MenacingCascoon

      Are you serious?
      Digimon tri is so bad and a confusing mess to me

      • Josh Omega

        Yes I am serious. To each their own. I love it you don’t let’s just leave it at that lol

        • MenacingCascoon

          Ok, but I think the last movie is the last one actually. Im pretty sure theres only supposed to be 6.

          • Josh Omega

            It is. For me I will be waiting for three more movies because I personally prefer the dub when it comes to anime. Probably nostalgia with digimon but hey that’s just me lol I will say that I wish they kept omnimons Japanese name though.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Ah! I see. Im watching in Japanese that explains it. Part 3 was probably the best part.
            If you havent watched digimon adventure in japanese though I HIGHLY recommend, it’s like a different show

          • Josh Omega

            I have actually thought about giving the original show a shot in Japanese because I have heard a lot of good things about it

          • MenacingCascoon

            It’s AMAZING. Like I loved digimon in dub (despite how cheesy it is), but my goodness… I was like blown out of the water with how much Eng changed somethings. I even knew what was going to happen (I saw the show like 3 times in English), and I got even more emotional after seeing it in original dub. Definitely a MUST see

  • Daedardus
    • LunaMoon

      I’d trust the SW actor over the Texan and the fatso.

    • Josh Omega

      I hate politicians…crap like this is why. This whole net neutrality thing is stupid. They need to keep it because let’s be honest a lot of people do not want it gone except for the businesses obviously. And not saying all politicians are bad. I am sure some of them actually care about the people but problem is they are outnumbered by the ones who only care about money

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well I beat Red again

      • EarthenWarrior

        Yep

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Are those hours? That seems like a very long time playing it. I don’t think my VC run had hit even 1/3 of the time and I was about to challenge Red with a team of slightly higher level. Did you catch all the Pokémon you could in the Dex or whatnot?

      • MenacingCascoon

        Probably super speed

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Can anyone help me breed something in a bit? I will provide parents, I just need 2 of my Chimecho bred together and they both will be English which will mess up my Masuda chain if I do it.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Oh and it will need to be on an Ultra game.

    • Daedardus

      I’m an orphan, I volunteer! How good are these parents you talk about?

  • Josh Omega

    That annoying moment you get a call from Walmart that your ex’s prescription is ready. Called them back and told them to remove my number from her file and told someone who talks to her to give her the message that I want my number removed from anything she uses. Sorry for slight rant was just really aggravating and had to vent some.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      As long as they don’t send you the bill.

      • Josh Omega

        Well explained to them that I wanted the number removed because she was my ex so hopefully that tells them to not send the bill to me lol


  • In case anyone cared, this is the music they used in the Jump Festa DBFZ Trailer.It’s really good

  • Josh Omega

    Dang I just realized the year ends in 13 days. To that I say I am ready. I am honestly ready for this year to end. A lot of ups and downs but I am so ready to put everything bad that happened behind me and move completely forward in 2018. Going to continue losing weight like I have all year and I will learn to drive in 2018 and finally get my license. After that I will find a better job where I can make more money. On a future relationship maybe who knows what will happen. Maybe someone will come into my life that changes my views on a relationship right now.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Finally got this set up to work decently
    https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ru-676139713

  • ShinyXatu

    I Choose You wasn’t THAT bad, it was just ridiculous. It seems like their only goal was to somehow fit together obvious Sinnoh foreshadowing, Sun + Moon content and Kanto/Johto nostalgia…and that’s pretty much it. It worked better than I thought, but it was just hollow. 7/10 from me.

    • LunaMoon

      The Gen 7 anime entirely is better subpar.

  • MenacingCascoon

    Actually curious. Did anyone prefer USUM trainer battle theme to SM?
    SM had the best trainer battle theme IMO, USUM messed it up. I do wish USUM remixed more like BW2.

    • LunaMoon

      I agree the USUM trainer theme wasn’t as appealing.

  • Josh Omega

    I just want to say something. Thank you everyone here. Whether you know it or not a lot of you have helped me a lot this year. Some of you may have seen on he forums earlier in the year that I went through a very bad breakup. It go so bad that I ended up leaving the forums because my ex kept posting stuff there about her new relationship and it got to me. That said using this site has helped me stay somewhat positive and kept my mind off everything that happened and I can’t thank y’all enough for that

    • MenacingCascoon

      Aw you’re welcome. Im sorry you went through that! We here will be with you through thick and thin! Im glad you stuck it through! And if you need anyone to talk to we are always here! I hope 2018 treats you and everyone better!

      • Josh Omega

        Yeah I am ready for this year to end. That said I am in a much better place than I was late last year when everything started happening and I am ready for 2018 so I can put all of this behind me. Some good cams of it though. I am closer to my friends and family again and I lost a lot of weight after gaining a lot the past nearly three years.

        • MenacingCascoon

          Congrats! Just keep going and stick it through and it will eventually work out!

          • Josh Omega

            I plan on it! Thanks!

    • Josh Omega

      I want to add something to this. If I can give anyone here some friendly advice on a relationship don’t settle for just anyone. If you are arguing a lot and the person tries to put a wall up between you and your family or your friends it’s not a good sign. I wish I had realized it earlier myself but hey that’s life you make mistakes. Only thing you can do is learn from them and overall if life pushes you down you get back up and keep moving.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Hail should really boost Ice types Defence by 50% for the duration

    • EarthenWarrior

      …..nahhh Avalugg would be extremely annoying without an open flame

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Avalugg is like the only bulky Ice type lol dont be so cruel to them

        • EarthenWarrior

          I’m just thinking that defense, on top of the 50% and Ice Body and leftovers

          • Monkeyfuzz

            And Aurora Veil.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah this needs to not happen

        • MenacingCascoon

          Only?
          Regice
          Walrein
          Avalugg
          Amarus
          Articuno
          Ninetales.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Shudder

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Most of those are OHKO’ed by either Flash Cannon or a close combat

          • MenacingCascoon

            Exactly. They need the help

      • MenacingCascoon

        Puhlease a boost in defense is amazing but it still literally dies to an ember. Just defense not Special Defense

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well then what about A Ninetales with Aurora Veil and that newer Def that’s 100% defense

          Earthen ain’t having that

    • MenacingCascoon

      It needs to honestly. I dont understand why its not like that. I guess they thought hail hitting non-Ice types was a good enough ‘buff’ when it’s really not.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I mean i like that Blizzard has 100% accuracy in hail, but its simply not enough.

        • MenacingCascoon

          It really isnt. They need the defense boost. Just bulky ice types sucks. Theres so many ice types who dont even know what they want to do. Ice NEEDS the buff

          • UnburdenedLegume

            SE v water
            resist water+flying
            Boost defense by 50% in hail

            Would be immense

          • MenacingCascoon

            I think SE on water is good, but I think it should resist fairy+flying. Ice doesnt really ‘resist’ water logically. TBH ice could resist grass and bug it logically makes sense. And maybe even be good against bug. but My IDEAL buffs would be
            SE on water
            Resist Fairy+flying
            50% boost defese in hail

  • Govnah

    i am sorry for how i acted before, it was very immature of me

    • ??

    • Josh Omega

      You are good. Saw your posts but stayed out of it. Honestly people shouldn’t post politics on here but that’s just my personal opinion

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    One of the most underrated Pokemon designs/maybe in in general is Sigilyph. I actually kind of want to use one at some point. It’s a very cool design and Psychic/Flying isn’t a bad typing either

  • Monkeyfuzz

    So nobodies gonna help me then? OK good.

    • Josh Omega

      What do you need help with if I may ask?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Just breeding my 2 Chimecho together so I don’t ruin my Masuda chain in US.

        • Josh Omega

          I can’t help you out! Just give me an hour or so please because I am eating right now and left my 3ds at home!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK thanks, I am not quite ready anyway so I’ll see you then.

          • Josh Omega

            Okay then I will send out a response as soon as I get home! If for some reason I don’t please just contact me!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh, looks like the server is under maintenance and won’t be done for 3 to 4 hours, will you be on around then? If not some time tomorrow?

          • Josh Omega

            I should be! If not I will for sure be tomorrow. It depends on how my body does me with getting over being sick and everything. Just contact me around the time the maintenance ends and I will get back with you!

  • Josh Omega

    Well I finally got my first fully evolved kanto starter in Pokémon go lol my favorite kanto starter no less so that’s a plus. Now I just need to get charizard bladtoise and typhlosion. And obviously all the hoenn starters final evos https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f929b32526dcb059f5133e50ec0b8e898d6170ee6ca95ba25c3a746678065fb6.png

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Also my favourite Kanto Starter. It was my first starter that I chose with my brother in Blue. I also used a Shiny Mega one in X.

      • Josh Omega

        Funnily enough as a kid it was my least favorite but as grew older it really grew on me!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I think Charizard was my favourite for the longest time. Bulbasaur+Ivysaur and Charmander+Charmeleon were pretty much tied. I think my favourite mid-stage is actually Wartortle though.

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Awesome! It looks like you got a good moveset as well. I try to aim for perfection so I don’t evolve my Pokémon unless they have good IVs. That is really only holding me back from getting a Charizard, Sceptile, and Feraligatr right now. Swampert and Blaziken are Starters that I don’t even have enough candies of.

  • Alright I gotta put Odyssey down for a bit… it’s really getting to me. Plus some other stuff on my mind I just gotta chill for a bit…

    • EarthenWarrior

      Did you beat darker

      • haha no

        • EarthenWarrior

          I did :3

          • tips? I could only make it to the cloudy section with the moving platform

    • stop the spam

      • LunaMoon

        It was just one comment.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Why has there been so much maintenance lately? Not just the recent update but the online maintenance, I’m sure we’ve had at least 3 in the last month, is USUM really that problematic?

    • LunaMoon

      They’re probably fixing it up.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I know that, I just wonder why it keeps needing fixing. Is it because there are issues with new Pokemon or something?

        • LunaMoon

          Maybe it’s because it’s pushing the 3DS’ limit and are trying to find ways to amend any bugs caused by that.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Hm, it is only online maintenance though.

          • LunaMoon

            Maybe the online is just berserk.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            That or hacking issues maybe. Hope it ends for a while soon.

    • Daedardus

      It’s always been like this, they do maintenance every week, you just play more.

    I dont use beard oil for 1 day and im already scratching itches lmao. Sometimes i just want to shave it all off but then i remember i am blessed with this exceptional piece of masculinity

    • Ultron

      Ew shave that

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I’m not a girl wth

        • Ultron

          Beards are disgusting

          • Josh Omega

            Respect the beard. I look so weird without one now lol

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I hate my face a little less with a beard, largely because it covers a portion of it.

          • EarthenWarrior

            YOU TAKE THAT BACK YE RAT FACED PIG

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Ur just salty cos you probably cant grow a proper one 😛

          • Ultron

            They physically disgust me. I will never grow one

          • Fedex

            Beards are for men, real men 😛

    • EarthenWarrior

      I just have my goatee…

      I wouldn’t go full beard, my face is too round and Italian to have a full beard

      • UnburdenedLegume

        My face was made for a full beard and hopefully it’ll continue to grow

        • EarthenWarrior

          Not mine, my facial hair is kinda “malnourished” I need some manscaping and maybe to grow it in a little more

          My chin beard thing is weird it’s like made of two points that don’t interlock so I gotta like work it into a bundle I dunno

      • Fedex

        I have a full beard :]

    • Sunniera 2.0

      What is beard oil?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Special oil to treat your beard with. It keeps it soft and easy to comb through

        • Sunniera 2.0

          Hmmm…Thanks for the info. I will never use it since I prefer to shave but it is nice to know.

    • You have a beard?

  • LunaMoon

    I have this feeling that I will soon get a shiny Pheramosa. Sure, I don’t have the shiny charm, but this is the part of the story where my patience is welly paid off, right?

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Well I feel like I studied quite a bit for my “not finals but actually are” exams tomorrow. I noticed on this article that the USUM games are supposed to be undergoing robust maintenance from 5:00 to 7:00 pm PST. I haven’t updated my UM game yet to the newest version, so does that mean that I can’t play it now as a break during this period of time because I can’t update it?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You can if you disable online.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Thanks.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    What is it with Netflix and kicking out actors for sexual harrassment lately? First Kevin Spacey and now Danny Masterson from The Ranch

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Because they are disgusting sexual predators and they don’t want to lose subscriptions?

    • Ultron

      **What is with actors and sexual harassment??**

      Fixed it for you

      And it’s because it’s really bad business to associate yourself with predators

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Yep i worded it wrong, didnt mean to imply i defended the actors.

        • Ultron

          Oh, well then it’s bad for business.

    • EarthenWarrior

      That kid from Spacey’s basement must’ve got out

      • Sunniera 2.0

        In all honesty, Kevin Spacey probably had the worst response to his sexual harassment accusation.

        “Well I don’t remember doing this but guess what everyone I am actually a homosexual!”

        (Cricket noises).

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Who is Danny Masterson and what is The Ranch?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Do you know That 70s Show?

        • Ultron

          We all knew he was though. Just look at him

          • Sunniera 2.0

            Well I mean I only saw him from That 70s Show so I thought his appearance was just him playing his part.

      • It’s a comedy about a family that lives on a Ranch

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Curly haired guy who always wore sunglasses in That 70s Show.

        • Sunniera 2.0

          Seriously!

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Its a sitcom about a dysfunctional family from a small town in Colorado starring Ashton Kutcher and until recently, Danny Masterson

        • Oh… I thought the dad was the accused one

          If that was the case, they would have made an enemy out of me, but well I can live without rooster

    • …The Ranch isn’t coming back then?…

      Netflix now just made an enemy out of me

      I could care less if they have supposed predators on shows as long as the shows good to me, there personal lives are not of my concern

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Season 4 came out yesterday actually and Masterson isnt in it

      • Monkeyfuzz

        They just remove the actor in future episodes. I imagine it’s easier in a comedy. I think House of Cards is dead now though.

        • Meh I don’t think I ever watched House of Cards. I watch only a select few Netflix shows and The Ranch just happens to be one of them

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Neither had I but it was a pretty big show for Netflix. I hear seasons 1-4 are good, but frankly I don’t know that I can be bothered at the moment. I recently watched Wet Hot American Summer which I found really funny for the most part. It has a fair amount of absurdist humour which I enjoy. You need to watch the movie, then first day at camp, then 10 years later.

    • Speaking of Netflix, you hear about how Twelve Forever is gonna be coming to it?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I dont even know what that is tbf

    Description: It is considered to be one of the most beautiful landscapes in the entire Pokemon world. It is the largest expanse of untouched land within the Incrum region for sure. Frigid waterfalls marvelously rush down to the bottom of the ravine, marvelously creating a rainbow color when it makes contact with ice. Despite this, it is among the most dangerous areas in the entire region. These features make it a commonly visited spot among poets, artists, thrill-seekers, and Pokemon trainers.
