Ho, ho, ho-ly crap, Christmas is right around the corner! And with the holiday season coming to a close, we say goodbye to the nightmare  year that is 2017, which was actually one of the best years for gaming we have ever seen. It sure is a good time to own a gaming PC, or a PS4, or an Xbox One; but forget that noise, it is a great time to own a Switch and a 3DS because Nintendo sure took us on a wild ride this year! (Dare I say it’s cool to be a Nintendo fanboy again?) Our bodies just weren’t ready for the success the Switch saw in such a short time and it is incredible the 3DS is still viable…almost seven years later…so let’s take a look at what our friends, family, Italian plumbers, etc. are hopefully getting us for Christmas this year.

Super Mario Odyssey (Nintendo Switch)

We’re starting off with the OG himself, Mario, who has stolen the spotlight once again with the best Super Mario installment since Super Mario Galaxy 2. He’s not spending too much time in outer space this time around though, but rather flying around on a top hat-shaped airship through various “Kingdoms” such as a desert, a city, and The Land Before Time, chasing after – you guessed it – Bowser who has kidnapped – right you are, again – Princess Peach. Bowser isn’t taking it slow anymore, he’s trying to wife Peach up in this story and you (as Mario) are speaking now and not forever holding your peace because that’s your woman!

The level design in Odyssey takes you back to Super Mario 64 basics with 3D, free-roam worlds and the game-play (think Super Mario Sunshine) is familiar too yet totally refined with the addition of Cappy, your trusty sidekick atop your head whom can be thrown at enemies like Koopas and freakin’ dinosaurs to shadow control them. You also collect Power Moons in additions to coins to purchase additional outfits so you can dress up like a chef or take Mario’s shirt off – in 1080p.

If the ability to play as topless Mario isn’t convincing enough, the game is Nintendo’s fastest-selling Super Mario game ever and it has received near perfect or absolutely perfect reviews by every respectable critic, because it damn well deserves it. Super Mario Odyssey is simply a must-have for every Nintendo Switch owner, and truthfully a sole reason alone to get your hands on a Switch!

Metroid: Samus Returns (Nintendo 3DS)

Let’s slow it down a bit now by bringing up a special lady/bounty hunter who seemed to be forgotten: Samus Aran. Remember Metroid II: Return of Samus? We back to that, but with improved graphics and now you have more controls such as firing at any angle and countering melee attacks. The game also introduces Aeion abilities which allow Samus to do new stuff like scanning the area for hidden items or routes as well as old stuff like Power Bombs.

Samus Returns isn’t so much a remake as it is a “re-imagining” of Metroid II and a solid one at that. Plus, after the garbage that was Metroid Prime: Federation Forces (and Metroid: Other M, to be honest), this installment is essential for Metroid fans. And it won Best Handheld Game at The Game Awards this year so if you’re into platform shooters, or just itching for something new to play on your 3DS, then voilà.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (Nintendo Switch)

If you never played or even heard of the Xenoblade Chronicles series, fear not because this JRPG might still be for you! You play as a warrior named Rex who wield a sword that is also alive, her name is Pyra. Y’all are searching for a place called Elysium which can serve as the ultimate paradise for humanity because civilizations are currently living on the backs of a bunch of ginormous beings called Titans – no, not the ones from Attack on Titan (that would be terrifying). Also, although it is technically a sequel, the world is new and so are the characters and the story-line can be understood without having played Xenoblade Chronicles or Xenonblade Chronicles X.

The game plays like your typical open-world, action role-playing game (think Final Fantasy, or Kingdom Hearts even), the graphics are pretty stunning for what the Switch is capable of and the music will slay you, beautifully. It has been well-received by critics too; this is the JRPG to get if you were looking for one on this console, hands down.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon (Nintendo 3DS)

Here we are again, with another Pokémon. The second installments of the seventh generation of the main series titles Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are quite similar to its predecessors yet different enough to give you a fresh – or at least fresh enough – experience this time around. The game revolves around Necrozma, who is up to no good thanks to those pesky Ultra Wormholes, and introduces a new group called the Ultra Recon Squad as well as a familiar group called Team Rainbow Rocket. There’s also a few new Pokémon to catch and locations to explore.

Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon were reviewed positively and are definitely solid purchases if you missed out on Sun and Moon, but seriously who on Earth – Pokémon fan or not – missed out on those!? Therefore, it comes down to how much you love this franchise and how long you want to wait for the next, genuinely new main series title to drop…which, truth be told, is gonna be awhile. Besides, it’s Pokémon; it’s always fun.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Nintendo Switch)

We’ll end on a high note here, perhaps the highest of notes Nintendo has ever hit: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I feel like just mentioning this game, which won multiple Game of the Year awards this year, is enough…but I’ll go on, I suppose.

In Breath of the Wild, Link embarks on an adventure like never before after waking up from a hundred-year snooze to the sound of Zelda’s sweet voice to find out Ganon has unleashed evil upon Hyrule once again. However, this isn’t your ordinary Zelda; no sirree, this Zelda features an open-world environment for the first time ever, insanely complicated physics, breath-of the wild taking graphics that push the Switch’s limits, and Zelda talks!

Link’s core mission is to reclaim these gigantic metal animals called Divine Beasts located in each of the four corners of the map and then take on Calamity Ganon in the center Hyrule Castle. You use your Sheikah Slate (the poor man’s Switch) abilities to create bombs, control metal objects, freeze water, stop time AND take pictures – all of which helps you along your adventure…yes, even the camera app. There are also shrines (mini-dungeons) to clear which serve as warp points on the way, and they reward you with Spirit Orbs for upgrading your heart count or stamina limit. However, there are just so many side quests to complete, towers to para-glide off of, areas to explore, special armors to craft, unique weapons to find, meals to cook, friends to make, mini-bosses to pummel and Koroks to play hide and seek with that you will forget a monster like Ganon even exists!

I, and everyone who has played Breath of the Wild, can’t recommend this game enough. It is worth getting a Switch for, even over Odyssey (but, like, why not both?), although if you own a Wii U you should know there is a Wii U version – which I played through myself before getting a Switch and it’s just fine. And, Breath of the Wild recently received two pieces of downloadable content available to purchase, so it’s still relevant…even though it has been all the rage since release. Well, what are you waiting for? Zelda needs you!

Honorable Mention:

Splatoon 2 (Nintendo Switch)

I wanted to give a quick shout out to Splatoon 2 because although it’s quite similar to its predecessor, Splatoon, it is still a solid game. The best parts about Splatoon are present in Splatoon 2 with the addition of a way better single-player campaign. There’s new weapons as well as a new type of weapon, dual-wield pistols, and a new co-op mode.

It basically is just Splatoon on the Switch but if you haven’t played Splatoon, this is a solid purchase as long as you enjoy shooters (think Overwatch I guess) and know what you’re getting into – which is playing multiplayer matches over and over and over with breaks in between to upgrade your weapons and gear. However, it’s the only shooter and one of the better multiplayer experiences on the Switch, for now…

Anyways, as always, let us know which of these games you have played, are playing or might be playing soon! And, Happy Holidays!

P.S. We at PokéJungle sincerely hope you didn’t wait this long to get your Christmas shopping done, but we hope this list gave you a a good idea.

  • ShinyXatu

    I’ve been wanting to pick up Metroid: Samus Returns since it came out but never got around to it. I’m sure it’ll be among the first games I get post-Christmas. I may also get Xenoblade Chronicles 2 if the special edition is still available by then, but I doubt I’d be able to sink too much time into a game like that.

    • Feliz Navidad

      It’s really annoying playing games like Xenoblade because there’s so much content but so little time ;-;

  • Feliz Navidad

    IMO as a continuation of a franchise, USUM doesn’t deserve to be on here but as an individual, it does. I just wish it was our first impression of Alola and not our second.

    Haven’t been able to play any of the other games but the fact Nintendo is doing so well makes me happy. And 2018 looks promising as well! But 2019 is where it’s at if that’s when we get Bayo 3 and PokéSwitch :p

  • Ultron

    How you about to put USUM on the list but then have splatoon as just an honorable mention because it was too similar to its predecessor? Pretty sure they put more work into making splatoon 2 a new game than Gamefreak did with USUM. But hey, opinions.

    • Feliz Navidad

      Gee, I wonder why the Pokémon site out Pokémon on their list…

      Also tbf USUM never advertised itself as a sequel whilst Sploon2 obviously did

      • Ultron

        Splatoon 2 probably could’ve innovated more, but I don’t really know any shooters that innovate too much between games. The story though I will admit is weak, but I didn’t buy it for the story where as I did for pokemon -shrug-

        • Feliz Navidad

          > Buying a third version for the story
          > acting as if you could be anything but disappointed :p

          I guess you meant the campaign as a whole tho :p

          • Ultron

            Honestly they hyped big changes and we got almost nothing. I partly blame myself tho

  • Natale

    Yee seeing Metroid here makes me really happy that the franchise hasn’t been forgotten. But really, this was such a great year for Nintendo in general that it’s going to be very hard for the next year to top it :0

  • The Butter Grinch

    Getting Mario Odyssey and the Honorable Mention 3 days from now!

  • I really wanna talk about all the games I played this year but I haven’t played Persona 5 or Hollowknight yet

    • The Butter Grinch

      I really’d like to play Persona 5, but I guess the only way that could happen would if a Switch port came out

      • Natale

        You could also wait for the future Shin Megami Tensei game for the Switch is *practically* the same

    • but I’m about to play Hollowknight cuz it’s 9$ on Steam YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

      well after Life is Strange Episode 3

  • Deerlia

    I missed you deers so much!
    My stupid wireless extender kept messing up the cached website of this site, so i couldn’t get to you guys without being redirected…
    I had to flush my whole cache just to get back to here, but now i am back~

    • The Butter Grinch

      Happy to see you back! And also I’ve seen few ”Oh Deer” T-Shirts and Sweaters in the last few months lol

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Are you in your winter form now?

  • Chaos

    Why is Magearna so good in OU?

    • Feliz Navidad

      Great moves, great ability, and an amazing defense typing :p

      • Chaos

        Yep. Also great stats.

      • LunaMoon

        Also great design.

    • I love Magearna so much ^w^

      • Sunniera 2.0

        I don’t see how your love makes Magdalena so good in OU. If it does, please spread that love to Pokémon in lower tiers so they can ascend as well and hate some that got to Ubers so they could return to OU. That is all I ask for Christmas. Please and thank you.

        • The Butter Grinch

          Magdalena?

          • Natale

            Cupcake in spanish

            I know, weird typo

          • The Butter Grinch

            And a popular Polish name

          • Sunniera 2.0

            I have never even typed the word down before, so yea it is weird.

        • #BringAegislashFromUbersDownToOU

      • Chaos

        I never used it until now, but the amount of work it does in battle is insane.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Lets batttttle

    • EarthenWarrior

      Annoying ability
      stupid Shift Gear and overly powerful stats

  • EarthenWarrior

    Yet another battery anxiety day, normally my phone is really good with battery usage but it dropped a whole 10% over twenty minutes and I wasn’t even exerting it, just YouTube and an occasional safari flip

    I just wish I could lombotomize the part of my brain that gets so worked up over it or that my devices wouldn’t lose power as quickly

  • Sunniera 2.0

    So

    • Feliz Navidad

      there

      • Natale

      Tbh all this chain shows how bored we are lol

      • Sunniera 2.0

        This chain was supposed to be a comment but there was something wrong with Disqus, as a chain was started I decided to try to continue it.

  • Re:Seraph

    Well I said a “savage” comment to an athlete today… it was enough that I feel guilty for saying it XD

    • Feliz Navidad

      Are you going to share said comment or

      • Re:Seraph

        Mayybeee
        I asked who the kid with the highest grade was (mainly cause I want to dethrone them). One kid commented on how he should be my competition (considering he was #1 in a stock market simulator game called market watch the teacher made us play) I responded with a simple
        “Colleges don’t look at marketwatch, do they”

        • Feliz Navidad

          That’s honestly quite tepid tbh 😡

          • Re:Seraph

            Shush I’m an unpopular shy boi and he was an athlete

          • You’re lucky he didn’t do what would happen at my school. Punch you in the face (My school is real violent, we had 20 fights by the this time last school year)

          • Re:Seraph

            Oh my school is like that, they just couldn’t where I was

  • Sunniera 2.0

    So…was an issue with posting the comment. What I meant to say was that Pokémon Go AR+ has been launched. I tried using it but the Pokémon wouldn’t come out of the grass no matter how many times I tapped it. Could someone check if they are having the same problem or if it is working fine for them?

    • Re:Seraph

      Iphone 5

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Thank you for making me aware of your inability to check this.

        • Re:Seraph

          Anytime dawg

  • The Butter Grinch

    I had a cute idea for a XMas pokemon drawing, but I’ve been struggling to draw Aloshrew’s head so f*cking much

  • LunaMoon

    Why are the React icon names in Turkish?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      They aren’t?

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Why are you typing in English?

    • Sunniera 2.0

      (I don’t even see the react faces but that may be because I am using a mobile).

    • Natale

      Sometimes they change languages, there was even one time they were in italian

      • LunaMoon

        Huh.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    The only one of these I have is Ultra Sun, though I want to play all of them alot.

  • LunaMoon

    Okie never mind, just fixed it, I had to refresh. I don’t know if it automatically changes depending on what you like or where you’re from but wow was that weird.

  • LunaMoon

    How ironic, they use a picture of Mario in his coat in a frigid Shiveria when they’re talking about “Hottest games”.

  • I really love the new life is strange episode but the delivery on Chloe’s lines is so off sometimes. She’s fine but she really is no Ashly Burch

  • LunaMoon

    Wouldn’t it be awesome if they actually had the Divine Beasts as karts for Mario Kart 9/Switch? It’d be amazing to see them use special abilities in certain area (ie., Medoh opening his wings while flying, Ruta using its trunk to get air or as a motor, Naboris legs moving while on land, Rumania shaking its tail while on climbs.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    What’s the best ability and nature for Luxray? I’m not sure I want to wait until Gen 4 remakes to breed a shiny one.

    • Feliz Navidad

      If you’re using it in game, Adamant with Intimidate

      If you’re using it for comp, Adamant with Guts or Intimidate depending on item. Flame Orb for Guts, Band for Intimidate. Depends on whether you want to be on a timer or forced into one move.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Hm, thanks, it’ll be competitive. I will probably do the opposite gender for Gen 4 remakes as they have differences.

  • Feliz Navidad

    Does anyone else find that listening to music with the same vibe as the thing you’re writing/drawing really helps make you flow better as you’re working?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I generally prefer silence if I’m writing as it’s easier to concentrate.

      • Feliz Navidad

        What sort of stuff do you write?:0

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Only stuff if someone asks for fakemon ideas really. I should probably do more creative writing tbh.

    • Natale

      That’s the power of music for you :p

    • Totally. If I’m listening to something sad then I usually work a little slower and more thoughtfully and a lot of the time those drawings don’t work out at all

      If I’m working on a piece that takes more time I’ll usually turn on a podcast or a longer album. It keeps me working and busy

  • The Butter Grinch

    In my class right behind me sits a girl that draws like really frickin good, like really really good (she draws mostly diffrent cute girls). One time our art teacher told us to draw owls and this girl was never satisfied with her drawing even tho it was great and everyone told her that it was great. When I asked her what she finds good, she anwsered “a lot of other people’s drawings on Deviantart”. I don’t really know why I wanted to share this, it just semeed weird for me.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I think comparing yourself to others can be helpful and spur you on to try and progress your own skills. If you do it too much however it can have the opposite adverse effect.

    • Sounds like you got, Buttered up…

      But is this the same girl you’ve talked of before? I remember you talking of a Girl who was into Pokémon and art once before

      • The Butter Grinch

        Yeah, it’s her. I think I know her a little more now and… she seems kinda weird. I’m not sure if I could be friends with her really.

        • Why not? Sounds like she just has self confidence issues.

          • The Butter Grinch

            It’s not that, it’s just her personality as a whole. Sometimes she’s kinda mean, tho maybe not on purpose. I mean, when I was talking to her about pokemon, it was okay. But Idk really…

          • Hmm tough decision maybe you could be mild friends with her (You have so small talk, but not much else)

          • The Butter Grinch

            Yeah I think that’s the closest I could/want to get to her

          • And it’s good to have those

            I could say I only have like 8 friends that aren’t like that

        • Sunniera 2.0

          We are all on a spectrum of weirdness, you shouldn’t let that bar you from possibilities of new relationships and expierences.

          • The Butter Grinch

            That’s not the kind of weird I meant

    • I can speak as an artist I’m never fully satisfied with my work. It’s really easy to look at other’s work and feel like my work doesn’t compare. At the same time, it keeps me from getting complacent and it keeps me improving

  • Oh what the heck I just heard something very absurd on the news
    “The US will stop funding countries who don’t vote with them in the UN”

    Do we really need to cause strife with other countries?

    • Sunniera 2.0

      No. But Trump does.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Barely formed Fakemon idea:

    Name: Driftuff (corruption of drift off meaning to fall asleep)
    Classification: The sleep inducing Pokemon
    Type: Psychic/Fighting.
    Ability: (not sure on name) A sleep version of Poison Touch.
    Description: “This Pokemon has great natural fighting skills and yearns to teach others, however it has the inane habit of expelling a sleep inducing aura as it does so, leading to it becoming disheartened as others fall asleep during its’ lessons.”

    • Sounds cool tbh

      Reminds me a bit of Komala in lore

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Hm, I wonder how it would interact with Komala. Since Komala is always asleep but can still do things as if it were awake.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I have something similar

      Monkii and Woofukong
      Fighting/Psychic Baboon martial artists/Shaolin Monks

      • EarthenWarrior

        Monkii try their best to harness their emotions to achieve a meditative state but get annoyed by distractions

        Woofukong willingly fight with their eyes closed to perfectly fight with senses but if they open them all the sights will overwhelm their bodies and fly into a rage

      • Monkeyfuzz

        It’s not that similar tbh. Driftuff has a face covered in long white hair and pronounced long white eyebrows. It has a long beard if male or a natural ponytail if female. Males have dark red fur covering their bodies which resembles a karate gi, the females have purple fur resembling a kimono, both have black under-shirt like fur. They are probably Baboon size but that’s about as monkey-like as they are. They have long black tails that act like belts around their waists, the females is wider like a sash. They are meant to look kind of like old martial arts masters.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Mine are covered in long drapey orange fur like a monk gi and white hair and hot pink skin

          And on their tail they have golden spheres

  • I’m gonna go back to more US while still wallowing in the fact that Hau completely destroyed my team with one Pokémon 🙁

  • Brick Break or Reversal for Jangmo-o?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It’s Modest so neither. Brick Break is more immediately powerful though and does smash screens.

      • I only need for a filler move till I get a better move

        Dragon Breath and Dragon Tail are great, but I need more variety

        And it can learn most of the other TM’s I have

    • TheReece25

      I’ve never heard anyone promote the use of reversal

      • Monkeyfuzz

        It works well with Focus Sash.

        • TheReece25

          Is it competitive tho? It sounds cool.. but I don’t think anyone uses it that way

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Not on Kommo-O, on stuff like Dugtrio it is.

  • Life is Strange never loses its ability to totally f*ck me up at the end

    Damn.

  • TheReece25

    I hope that Metroid finds it’s way on to the Switch. This game I mean. I know it’s that they are using it to sell their Hundredth 2DS model… So it likely won’t .. but still

  • EarthenWarrior

    So I’m watching Trollhunters and I’m noticing a lot of HTTYD recycled models namely
    Their hammer models (with the weird abstract spikes)
    Throk’s Axe
    And now even Maces and Talons game board including the pieces

    Earlier mentioned fakemon expansion if anyone cares to read:

    Name: Snoozit (Snooze meaning a light sleep + hit)
    Classification: The sleeping fist Pokemon
    Type: Psychic/Fighting.
    Ability: Hypnotic Fist – A sleep version of Poison Touch.
    “ A novice in the training of the Martial Arts, born with an urge to learn to fight. Its’ swaying as it attempts to learn new moves often has the unexpected side effect of making others fall asleep”

    Snoozit have white fur covered faces, black furry torsos and either light red or lilac leg fur resembling trousers depending on gender. They are small and their arms and legs are quite stubby. They have short black furry tails, the females is slightly wider but they are really quite stumpy. Their eyes are large and black like smooth shiny coal.

    Name: Sleepight (Sleep tight a saying meaning to sleep well + Fight)
    Classification: The sleeping fist Pokemon
    Type: Psychic/Fighting.
    Ability: Hypnotic Fist – A sleep version of Poison Touch.
    Evolves at level 17
    “This Martial Arts apprentice often excitedly tells others of its’ progress in honing its’ skills, unfortunately its’ garbled speech and excited demonstrations often leave others dozing off into a slumber. They sometimes use their psychic power instinctively to steady themselves when attacking”.

    Larger and with fully formed limbs, the face fur is longer, the beard of the male is more pronounced and the females hair is longer. The male now has a darker brick red fur covering its’ body like a sleeveless karate gi, its’ tail wraps round its’ waist fully and looks exactly like a belt unless unfurled. The female has similar except it’s fur is purple, It has short sleeves and its’ tail ends in a short bow at its’ back. The eyes are semi-closed but shine white when attacking.

    Name: Driftuff (corruption of drift off meaning to fall asleep and tough)
    Classification: The sleeping fist Pokemon
    Type: Psychic/Fighting.
    Ability: Hypnotic Fist – A sleep version of Poison Touch.
    Evolves when knowing Hypnosis at level 44
    Description: “This Pokemon has great natural fighting skills and yearns to teach others, however it has the inane habit of expelling a sleep inducing aura as it does so, leading to it becoming disheartened as others fall asleep during its’ lessons. Their psychic power allows for great precision in their attacks and greater anticipation of their opponents movements.”

    Driftuff has a face covered in long white hair and pronounced long white eyebrows. It has a long beard if male or a natural ponytail if female. Males have dark red fur covering their bodies which resembles an old martial arts masters robes, the females have dark purple fur resembling a kimono, both have black under-shirt like fur. They are probably Baboon size. They have long black tails that act like belts around their waists, the females is wider like a sash with a large bow at its’ back. They are meant to look kind of like old martial arts masters. Eyes appear closed but fully open and glow Crimson for males or Amethyst for females when attacking.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Really looking forward to seeing Poipole doing some stuff in the anime. It’s such a great Pokemon. Will also be very interesting to see how they handle the rest of the UBs. It’s clear that if they’re doing USUM content in the anime that the movies will never feature them. So it should be fun

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I hope the Ultra Recon Squad appear and get good characterisation.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I could honestly see them getting left out with Ash and co. being dubbed the “Ultra Guardians” who knows tho

    • EarthenWarrior

      I feel it’s going to be a reoccurring character that will pull plenty of Meloettas until it decides to reveal itself

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I could see that. It’d make sense

  • LunaMoon

    This is what I’d like the character roster to be in Mario Kart S (for Switch)

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Probably too many.

      • LunaMoon

        Meh.

    • Why not Kirby? Wouldn’t be hard knowing be actually had his own racing game on a console before

      • LunaMoon

        Eh forgot about him

      • Monkeyfuzz

        So has Sonic.

    • Ultron

      Remove metals and babies

  • Sunniera 2.0
    • Monkeyfuzz

      Spheal and Delibird are cool.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Delibird Cool? Surely you jestin

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I like Santa Bird.

  • ShinyXatu
    • TheNintendoChip

      Glad to see this lol. I was actually revisiting a lot of songs I haven’t heard for a while, and I remembered Handlebars. Such a great song!

  • EarthenWarrior

    I swear I hate when gimmick teams get stupidly lucky

    A turdle power team

    • Turtle power?
      Blastoise
      Turtonator
      Carrocosta

      • Ultron

        Ew what turtle team would carry turtonator over torkoal

        • Monkeyfuzz

          A mono Dragon one.

          • Ultron

            How can you make a mono dragon turtle themed team? Pretty sure only turtonator would fall into that category

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Exactly https://media.tenor.com/images/1e14b550b1d3a5d45f470679528c4c5d/tenor.gif

            (Though I do actually like Turtonator still).

          • Finally! Another person who likes the Turtinator

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It’s better in the anime tbh.

          • It needs work in stats and location

            Turtonator is however has and always will be one of my prized 5 from Moon (Brother traded it to me)

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It really does, it has a nice typing it just has bad stats and could probably do with both a better ability and movepool.

        • I think Turtonator has a lot of potential for greatness

      • EarthenWarrior

        Shuckle torterra and Turtonator

        Damn Rock Polish Torterra landed two Stone Edges on my Sigilyph and Torkoal somehow sweeps…….

        I feel like cutting myself

        • Ultron

          I really hope not

          • EarthenWarrior

            Not yet maybe on Christmas

  • Well, I just rewatched Space Patrol Luluco. Still good as ever

  • Ultron

    After extensive playing, I’ve concluded that mantine surf and ultra wormhole riding simply are not fun. Getting gangbanged by sharpedo while descending and not absorbing space orbs when you literally pass right through them is annoying and ruin these minigames

  • LunaMoon

    I remember when people were speculating how different or serious USUM would be based on the artwork. Oh, how wrong those people would be…

  • EarthenWarrior

    During work I had an idea

    The Earthen that stole Pokejungle

    Mainly “Little Kurusu who” with more than two Us

    • I am honored to be that Who

      • EarthenWarrior

        But instead of me sending you back to bed I just abruptly punt you any given direction

    • Monkeyfuzz

      The little girl from the Jim Carrey Grinch movie grew into the hot lead singer of The Pretty Reckless which is kinda weird to think.

  • Guys I discovered something today. Torracat should never not have Leech Life

    It was getting beaten left and right in 1-2 hits, until I added now everything it touches get demolished. Also gave Minty, Smart Strike to widen its move pool

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Until it can get Drain Punch from tutor which has wider coverage. Seel having Smart Strike is weird but OK.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Well Smart Strike is similar to the Iron Tail requirements that a Pokémon with a developed horn can use it

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I guess, I didn’t really associate it with a horn because Kartana has it and that’s all I’ve used with it.

          • EarthenWarrior

            The user stabs the target with a sharp horn. This attack never misses

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Alright, I didn’t read the description, just used it as it naturally has it. It has tiny horns so I assumed it used its’ blade arms.

      • Just a diverse move that could give it some coverage later.

        It probably will get replaced some time when something else is available as he is Modest

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Well that and I didn’t imagine it could do it.

    • LunaMoon

      I mean Torracat isn’t even a grass type so it shouldn’t be allowed to use it.

      • It’s a Bug move. And that’s like saying Groudon’s and Moltres are Ground and Fire types respectively so they shouldn’t learn Solar Beam

        • LunaMoon

          I think Torracat needs to be taught a lesson on misbehaving. *Gets out whip* Ahh, this should do it. *uses rope to get out cat food*. Torracat won’t be needing’ THIS for a while.

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Wait…Trollhunters was made by Guillermo del Toro. Maybe I should watch it.

  • I’ve been playing Hollowknight for almost 2 hours and it might be the best metroidvania I’ve ever played

  • DucoLamia

    For any other artist on this site, have you ever started drawing but realized you wanted to do more than that and add some meaning to it? Like, not in that ” art must have a deeper meaning!” type of way that many pretentious artists spew but more of, “I’d like to make something that is meaningful.” I feel like I’m like that when I draw. It’s not that I don’t want to create something, I just want to make something that is enjoyable.

    • I often find the mood or meaning of a piece while making it. I don’t often start with one of those but I feel like I probably should ^.^

      • DucoLamia

        I can see that honestly. Lately, I’ve been doing what I feel “makes” a character enjoyable to me and then adding “meaning” to them later with their personality. I guess it depends on which you want to do first.

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • LunaMoon

      What’s happening, is Poipole being expelled from this world an being ejected in the dumpster Wormhole?

      • Feliz Navidad

        Now that I think about it, you kinda remind me of someone lol

        • Natale

          Details.

          Cuz he also reminds me of someone ?…

          • Re:Seraph

            Reviewing was the name and the game

          • Natale

            Same

          • The name sounds familiar, but can’t place it

        • Monkeyfuzz

          The one that got banned that kept getting others to ask if they could come back? I forgot their name.

          • Re:Seraph

            He may have wanted a shiny fomantis

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Ash gets a Poipole

    • Re:Seraph

      Cannot wait till Ash releases it. Watch it not want to go either

  • LunaMoon

    Fun Fact: Pokéjungle sounds like ‘Poke a jungle’.

    • Feliz Navidad

      I mean… You should be working in school ?

      Ah the good old days of using proxies to access blocked websites at school…

    • Natale

      But…what if you need to use the website?

    • That is BS! I would hate that knowing I have figured out how I can watch my shows on my Chromebook via Youtube

  • Feliz Navidad

    Preview of something I’m working on

    Combo Name: Terra Hammer
    Combo Moves: Rock Wrecker/Hammer Arm
    Type: Rock/Fighting
    Description: As Rhyperior charges up a gigantic Rock Wrecker, it uses Hammer Arm to slam it down straight onto the foe. The debris can form rocks on the battlefield, to Rhyperior’s advantage.
    Effects: Add rocks to the battlefield, extremely traumatic damage to the foe, but leaves Rhyperior immobile for a short time.

    Combo Name: Seismic Slammer
    Combo Moves: Earthquake/Hammer Arm
    Type: Ground/Fighting
    Description: Rhyperior uses Hammer Arm to launch into the air, and as it comes back down it readies Earthquake to simultaneously strike the earth with Hammer Arm. This causes Earthquake to violently chuck up earth, and is devastating if Rhyperior directly makes contact with the opponent.
    Effects: Slows Rhyperior down but not the same extent as Terra Hammer, can destroy field hazards and terrains.

    Combo Name: Arockalypse
    Combo Moves: Rock Wrecker/Earthquake
    Type: Rock/Ground
    Description: Rhyperior embeds Rock Wrecker into the earth as it charges up to a massive size. Rhyperior will be on top of the rock if it charges, and will actively attempt to pin its opponent under the rock. Then, Rhyperior piledrives the rock and crushes it, causing a severe earthquake that sends out a storm of stony shards. Although amazingly powerful, it is risky as the debris can be very inaccurate if the opponent isn’t pinned. Rhyperior is left in an extremely vulnerable position and is also quite tired after using it.
    Effects: Completely razes the battlefield. It has the field reset aspect of Seismic Slammer and the rocky field aspect of Terra Hammer, but is weaker in both aspects than either. The residual stones are smaller than Terra Hammer’s, and the field cleanse isn’t as precise and may leave lingering effects.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Out of curiosity why Rhyperior?

      • Feliz Navidad

        No other feedback? ;-;

    • Natale

      Tbh Pokemon using 2 moves at the same time to perform a combo move sounds very cool, but I’m curious as to why all of those involve Rypherior, are you EarthenWarrior2 or something ?

      • FEHry

        Changing my name to Fehry as we speak

        • Natale

          Good.

          Spread the feh

  • Opened Go during History Class (Fairy don’t worry we are watching Mulan, not doing work) and I saw the biggest haul I’ve ever seen
    A Makuhita, Meditite (New), Elektrike (New), 3 Swinub, a Snorunt, a Gulpin, 2 Seel, Torchick (New), 2 Roselia, a Sneasel and a Skitty

    I didn’t catch anything but the Snorunt and the 3 New ones as I have one Ultra Ball left.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      I just caught a Seedot and Snorunt and there are Hitmonlee, Shroomish, Poochyena, Makuhita and Roselia nearby

    • Ultron

      Um…why weren’t you watching Mulan?

        Ew. Drill Rotom Electric/Steel could be good (handheld drill for walls,wood etc).

      • YES

      • Natale

        Let’s keep it PG anyone?

        • Sunniera 2.0

          Fine. It is an Electric lightsaber that my parents own and keep in their drawers for some reason. Make it Electric/Dark.

      • The Butter Grinch

        Electric/Fairy?…

        • Why Fairy?
          Don’t you dare say its a magical experience

          • Josh Omega

            It’s a magical experience. You don’t them not to say it. Didn’t say anything about me lol

    • We got vending machine Rotom in the game via side quest

  • EarthenWarrior

    Also no more BOTW DLCs it is completely done

  • Re:Seraph

    So who decided that of all the Pokemon needing events, they should pick Corsola

        To be fair Corsola looks cute

      • I like Stantler tho…

        It’s not bad for a Deer Pokémon

    • Probably to give lesser known Pokémon more love

      • Re:Seraph

    I wasted my last Ball and it leaped over it after I gave it a Razz Berry even ?

  • TheReece25

    If Ash catches Poipole and doesn’t release it.. I will be So Upset. First of all… That will be 4 Pokemon weak to Ground.. Ash.. you’re in Pokemon School. You wanted to be Better than Kalos.. where you made it to finals… Wtf. Secondly.. Naganadel Doesn’t fit him At All.. Nor his team. It looks awkward af. Meaning he may not evolve it, and what’s the point of having an Ultra Beast if you won’t evolve it?? Plus he may not even evolve poor Rowlet. Ugh. Ew https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e2d005e3a536ef44278e7dcb2d491709a2ee72903f268db196b12422d2368691.png

      Ditto?

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Ash is the Ditto. That is why he never ages.

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Wow, by the number of comments it seems like a lot of people are having fun playing Pokémon Go again; while I have to wait at my home because no one is awake yet and there is only two Pokestops and a Gym in my neighborhood. The possibility of running out of balls is very real.

  • Ugh I don’t understand how grades work

    A 78% on a quiz somehow drops a 69% overall to a 67%? How! I keep adding grades higher than my overall and it instead keeps lowering the grade.

    I can confirm it here. I am just a terrible test taker. I study, learn the material and try hard and still fail everything

    • TheReece25

      Tell your teacher, and they should help. May need tutor. Also they allow students extra time who needed it when I was in school.

      • She’d probably help me, but my teacher has made it clear that basically if you don’t have special needs you don’t get extra test time

  • Sunniera 2.0

    For those of you excited about the release of 20 new Pokémon yesterday in Pokémon Go because Relicanth was released in this batch, I have good news for you! You now have an excuse to travel to New Zealand because supposedly it is only found there…Yea?!

    • … Go is starting tick me off with now 5 regional exclusives

      Let me guess, Luvdisc also is region bound?

    • Re:Seraph

      RELICANTH ISN’T IN AMERICA!? FUCCCCCCCKKKKKK!!!!! THAT WAS THE ONE THING I WANTED

    • Lucky you had Serebii

      Basically my schools thought process if its fun, blocked except Youtube

      • Good thing they can’t block me from making what ever Google docs I want for Howlite. I would go to war to defend that

        • Speaking of Google Docs, I’m writing something rn

  • The Butter Grinch

    I have an idea for a fakemon duo
    A Sailor with a giant fist and a pissed off shark that got punched in the nose multiple times

    • Re:Seraph

      A better duo would be two pieces of paper. One that says scrap, and another that says this

      • The Butter Grinch

        Was never gonna make it, just thought of it

    • Natale

      Except this doesn’t feel like a pkm at all

    • One idea that could be good is to do something similar to the SV Snaggerjag from Yokai Watch.

      It’s a living boat that uses a hook to fish up, ally fish to aid it

      Maybe a Pokémon that is a boat that has little fish Pokémon as helpers

      It will be so large that it will already be near you when it spawns, it will get spooked, and then it will run away without you being able to catch it. I am honestly excited to get a Wailord simply because of the challenge to obtain 400 Wailmer Candies.

    • Natale

      …..big

  • EarthenWarrior

    Screw it im restarting Skyward Sword today

    • FEHry

      Hope you enjoy dude

      • EarthenWarrior

        I will because I loved Skyward Sword and I don’t get why it gets such a bad rep

        Yeah the motion plus and Fi and the art turns people off but who cares I have different tastes and I just feel like doing it

        The ultimate lesson is
        “Play games for yourself, not for anyone else”

        • FEHry

          Defo, as long as you enjoy it who cares what others think?

          Unless it’s sonic. Then you should feel bad ?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Well to be utterly honest
            Sonic Adventure 1-2
            Heroes
            Mean Bean Machine
            Battle

          • FEHry

            Heroes is a childhood fave ?

          • Natale

            – Said the biggest Sonic fan here ?

          • Sonic Forces is the funniest game of 2017 and I enjoyed it thoroughly

            “Non of this is good, vex. That’s why it’s called war”

        • InfinityD4

          THE MOTION CONTROLS WERE NEVER THAT BAD FOR ME(Skyward Strikes and Pointing due to how the Sensor Bar works notwithstanding)

        • Ultron

          I really like skyward sword for the most part

        • The art turns people off? That’s like the best part of the game tho

          • Ultron

            Impa is gorgeous in that game

    • Deerlia

      Good, fun game deer~

  • School is a d*ck

    It let me download Emerald extreme randomizer, but the administration blocked get the app to work it and I can’t delete the download so it’s stuck there useless

  • Sunny Mahmud

    Anyone mind helping me with something quick in USUM. I need to teach a Pokemon Thunderbolt? If possible, do reply, thanks!

    • I can’t help, but if you want I can ask Monkeyfuzz for you if you’re not here later.

      He’s the best guy to go to about stuff like this

    • InfinityD4

      SANDY CAVE ON MELEMELE.

      • Sunny Mahmud

        Thanks, but I jsut bought Ultra Sun and need to teach my Pichu Thunderbolt lol

      • InfinityD4

        WITH MACHAMP NO LESS

  • FEHry

    As individual games:
    Platinum > USUM > Emerald > Crystal > Yellow > Blue

    As third versions:
    Platinum > Emerald > USUM > Crystal > Yellow > Blue

    Fite me

    • Platinum > Emerald > Crystal > USUM > Yellow > Blue

      Just what I enjoyed the most

      • FEHry

        Eww hoenn above actually good regions

        • Hoenn is good you hoe….nn

          • FEHry

            No. Enn. It’s a failure at a warm region, has far too much terrible gimmick Mons, and forgettable characters. Last thing is amended in the remakes and the first is helped a bit in ORAS but at the cost of a ton of stuff

          • By gimmick mons you mean pokemon that actually interact with the world and mechanics

            By warm region, it’s not RSE’s fault that ORAS failed to capture what they couldn’t on a GBA

          • FEHry

            ‘Actually interact with the world and the mechanics’

            Like what? What Pokémon interacts with the world anymore than other Gens? And ml the mechanics based Mons are basically failures because they’re all poorly implemented, or their feature is poorly implemented.

          • *sigh* I mean… if you actually paid attention to the lore around the Pokémon and stuff then you’d see tat they were actually designed to be integral to the region itself

            I don’t really wanna go in depth but like

            Keckleon blocks the way because it can color change like… of course it would. It would confuse people if they just bumped into something invisible without realizing it’s a keckleon

            Verdanturf Tunnel is full of whismur which is a Pokémon that makes very quiet noises and it was being disturbed by the loud digging that was going on so the people stopped the digging

            Relicanth is described as being unchanged after millions of years of evolution and it is used in the regi sidequest because it is tied to ancient times

            Plusle and Minun demonstrate double battles obviously

            I think you forget that this was before comp was a big thing. Pokémon didn’t have to be powerful. That wasn’t the point. They just had to be part of the world like an animal would.

            That’s why Voltorb exists ffs. No one ever said it was this amazing design. It’s a mimic. It serves a purpose in the world. Pokémon needs more of that

          • FEHry

            > Whismur isn’t a terrible gimmick Mon, and whilst it’s actually implemented into the world well, it’s just a cool little detail used to explain why they can’t dig straight through the tunnel. Nice, but not an amazing thing which changes how bad the other gimmicks are.

            >Relicanth is actually cool but considering its quest requires braile with very little clues in game its not done all that well.

            >There’s been plenty of other ways to block in the game, Kecleon isn’t some astounding new innovation and its in battle gimmick fails because it needs to take hits and it’s not exactly great at doing that the whole game.

            >Double battles? Which you do like ten-ish times the whole game? Which you’re unlikely to use both in? Which NPCs barely utilise in conjuction with Plusle and Minun?

            Just because I disagree with you doesn’t mean I ‘don’t know the lore’ or ‘don’t know it was before comp’ lol.

          • InfinityD4

            the thing is, as pointed out on Bulbapedia, is that the SOUND was adversely affecting the Whismur, who have SOUNDPROOF.

    • Natale

      – No black or white and platinum in first

      fites you

      • Natale

        Wait BW2 counts right?

    • Individuals based on teams and what not

      US> Diamond> X> White 2> Leaf Green> Yellow

      • Before you jump on me about my picks, a team really defines how good it was doesn’t It?

        If you have a bad team you’ll have a bad time and vice versa

        • third… versions…

          • Oh then

            USUM> Yellow> Emerald> Platinum> Crystal
            *Crystal is so low only cause never played it before
            *Unless your in Japan Blue isn’t a third version, but if it did count then it’d go above Crystal… fite me

          • FEHry

            USUM and Emerald over Platinum

            Ew.

          • I like Platinum, but my Emerald team really was good to me

            Sceptile
            Walrein
            Heracross
            Dodrio
            Aggron
            Raichu

          • Ultron

            Yellow is way too high

          • I liked Yellow

            It was fun to play, but after I learned Ditto sucked my team fell apart it was before however
            Pikachu
            Butterfree
            Chameleon
            Seadra
            Victreebel

        • Natale

          Not really, having a bad team will make the game harder and not worse, so you’ll have a bad time but only in terms of difficulty.

          • If I work with teams with Pokémon I’m not fond of, the experience won’t be as good as a team of Pokemon I like. Unless it grows on me like Walrein has

      • FEHry

        These aren’t third versions tho

        • Sorry, didn’t realize that so I did another

        • Natale

          Tfw gen 1 was so bad that they needed two third versions instead of one ?

    • FEHry

      Guys. These are all third versions. ?

    • Natale

      Emerald > Platinum > Crystal > USUM > Yellow > Blue

      Haven’t played half of these tho

  • It’s sort of weird that I can remember when Emerald was widely considered the best game in the series

  • InfinityD4

    You know the 12 Days of Christmas Right? Yeah those start on The 25th and End on January 5th.

  • TheReece25

    After playing USUM, Not knowing what Pokemon I really wanted until I caught them for like the first time… I’ve updated my Ideal UsUm team.
    It’s basically my in game team, minus Butterfree and Tapu Koko. I’m happy it’s Speedy ?
    I wish they used Zora wasn’t stood straight up tho.. looks odd

    Update: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/494c0600289085b2c3fdb72e9accf6696aa92b265296acbc9bb241b69e33bdad.png

    • But Zeraora isn’t released yet?

      • TheReece25

        I Know…. I know…. I plan to hack or have someone do for me. Makes no difference to me personally.

        • InfinityD4

          *pulls out Squirtbottle* no! Bad Togetic!, no hacking Current Gen games! The only games we hack are 3rd Gen (and to a MUCH lesser extent 4th and 5th Gen.)

          • TheReece25

            … squirt me again ?

    • TheReece25

      Had a hard time ditching Decidueye and mimikyu

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ewwwww the batteries in my old wii mote are oxidized or whatever

    • InfinityD4

      Acid Leakage? I think that’s what that’s called?

      • EarthenWarrior

        Something like that

  • InfinityD4

    Does XY suck or does Kalos Suck?

    • Sunny Mahmud

      Game Wise, XY Sucks. Anime-wise, pretty good.

    • Natale

      Neither of them sucks really, it’s just that they weren’t as good as Pkm games usually are, same happened with DP really.

      And I would say Kalos cuz a lot of the problems people have with XY come from it

      • InfinityD4

        Kalos just Flew by after Shalour… AND WHAT I’M PRETTY SURE IS THE ONLY ROUTE IN KALOS THAT NEEDED SURF BUT YET DIDN’T NEED TO NEED SURF.

        • Sunny Mahmud

          lol that route might as well been the route to justify Surf, and HMs return as a whole. Glad they took a back seat in Gen 7.

          • InfinityD4

            I mean Surf, Fly, Waterfall(Gen IV+) were good enough to Become TMs, if Cut had a HCHR it would have just been slash with 20 less power, Flash Could be buffed like string Shot, Defog was Buffed after it lost status, Rock smash could be a little stronger but even when it wasn’t buffed to 40 BP it still had the1 in 2 chance of lowering defense, Dive is just Dig/10 weaker fly, Rock climb could be more accurate but has decent power and a 20 % confusion chance, and I liked the idea of HM Slots which you couldn’t use in battle but you could still have the field move

          • Flash is an awesome move, Idk what your talking about

            Give Totem Lurantis 2 hits of it and you can evade everything

    • probably Kalos but X and Y still suffers from pacing, story and characters

      • InfinityD4

        I was Watching Commander Holly’s birds only playthrough of sun and she and Ross and possibly Jimmy put it into really clear terms how XYs characters failed.

        • Can you link me to that episode?

          • InfinityD4

            No idea, because I binged the playlist. Possibly one of the Jimmy Episodes, Its at least in the second Half of it.

        • XY probably was good on paper, but failed in the scheme of things

    • Kalos, Great Pokémon, not too great of other stuff

    • Ultron

      Both

  • TheReece25

    Is Phermosa still the beat ultra beast… Singles wise? I wanted a Kartana.. especially because Z-Tailwind is Insane. Hmmm

  • Sunny Mahmud

    Might as well ask again. Anyone got a Thunderbolt TM? Need it for Pichu as I am still on Mele Mele? Thanks 😀

    • Monkeyfuzz

      If you still need it you can trade me Pichu and I will teach it.

  • InfinityD4

    So just to be clear, Everyone knows Zeraora is Pure Electric Right?

    • The Butter Grinch

      Sadly, yes

      • InfinityD4

        Is it the new Charizard/Gyarados?

        • The Butter Grinch

          Yes, but the typing is even worse

    • Natale

      Smh only good thing about it is the design

      • TheReece25

        Good stats… Good move pool.. I’m sure it will get some bonus next gen to make standout

        • Re:Seraph

          Good stats? It’s outclassed by a fair amount of electric types
          Can’t run a physical swords dance which it was clearly tailored for
          When’s the last time a mythical got anything

          • TheReece25

            Shhhhhhhhhhhh.. ill Slay u with it!

          • Jirachi with Draco Meteor and Iron head

          • TheReece25

            ..?

      • Re:Seraph

        It’s a fursona, it doesn’t even have that

        • Natale

          > Implying fursonas are bad ?‍?

          • InfinityD4

            I mean Ross Convinced Danny Lucario was some kid’s Fursona the Make-a-Wish Foundation put in Smash.

          • Oh my god I totally forgot about that. That’s fuckin hilarious

          • InfinityD4

            He recounted the story on an episode of Holly’s Birds only Playthough, which again I finally Binged Recently.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Argh I forgot how impatient I am in gaming
    I hate all the yakking of stories

    • The Butter Grinch

      So I guess you hate movies?

      • EarthenWarrior

        No it’s just I’m overly impatient these days and don’t want to listen to them tell me things at least 3 times

      • Natale

        Some people like games without story because it sometimes interferes with the gameplay

      • FEHry

        Nah, I think the issue here is is that you buy a game for game play and a movie for a narrative. One isn’t intractable and is someone else telling you their narrative whilst the other revolves around being intractable.

        • FEHry

          *intractable, calm down autocorrect

          • FEHry

            *interactable

  • InfinityD4

    anyone here been on pokecommunity?

    • Sunniera 2.0

      What is that?

      • InfinityD4

        a forum.

        • Sunniera 2.0

          Why would you go on any other forum aside from Pokejungle…perhaps…are you a spy?!

  • The Butter Grinch

    What do you think about Mamma Mia 2? I think the first one was Ok. One thing I have to admit is that the title ”Mamma Mia 2 Here we go again” is pretty funny

    • FEHry

      Never thought I’d see Mamma Mia on here ?

      • Natale

        Welcome to PJ 😛

    • Natale

      w h y t h o

      The first one was only a cliche chick flick that didn’t have any original songs and only used ABBA songs to capitalize off from moms. So I don’t think this one will be different.

    • Ultron

      Jukebox musicals make me f*cking sick

  • Sunniera 2.0
    • The Butter Grinch

      The Hariyama model is pretty Dope

      • Sunniera 2.0

        It is also a pretty dope Pokémon.

    • EarthenWarrior

      JESUS H FAK you REALLY let yourself go

      • Sunniera 2.0

        The 17th blackberry turnover is probably when I should have stopped.

  • The Butter Grinch

    I’m more sure than ever that Jacksfilms is my #1 Favourite Youtuber

    • EarthenWarrior

      Mine hands down SMG4 tomorrow is most likely his Christmas special

  • The Butter Grinch

    So the new Arms update is the last one. A sequel in the works?…

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Or they just aren’t paying to support it anymore.

      • TheReece25

        Isn’t it hardly responsive?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I really don’t know since I don’t have it.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Just saw an actual advert on tv for Go, the first time I think I’ve ever seen it advertise on tv here.

    • Hmm what was it like?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        It basically was just saying Gen 3 was out and “please come back, we miss your money”.

        • They don’t need me back… they still have me

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Fair enough, pretty sure they’ve lost 3/4 of their users since last year and that’s why they need advertisement.

  • Bored what to do… ooo pick for me

    -Start my Pokejungle art fully (Not the rough draft I showed)
    -Train my team in US
    -Play my new Emerald Emulator where I name everything with the first thing in my head
    -Watch Family Guy
    -Play one of my other gam… crap my cases are at my mom’s not where I am, crap! Wait? Is this still on?

    • So side addition to the last one I have Yellow and Silver on my DS so those also are options

    • Monkeyfuzz

      The first 2.

      • Ok then.

        I really should get started as my back up I forgot to photograph before I turned in

        I took a snowflake template and made a Cryogonal at school today

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Sounds cool.

    • TheReece25

      Give each an hour or two and Do it all

      • My character is named Fruitz ad he owns Webster the Mudkip

        Next hopefully will be Randy Jackson the Wurmple

        • TheReece25

          People love Randy Jackson..

  • TheReece25

    Maybe Gen 8 will add a True 5th move slot. . ?
    I’ll be ready to read through the sh*t storm..
    It won’t happen, but , how many Pokemon suffer from 4 move syndrome or whatever it’s called..
    Z moves ain’t solving this.
    I’d be all for it. Butterfree would be so much better.
    Sleep powder, Bug Buzz, Roost, Z- tailwind, Air Cutter would really make the competitive scene.. more competitive. Especially singles.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I feel like while a 5th slot would be useful it wouldn’t be quite as useful now that HMs aren’t a thing (hopefully going forward too) The problem before was that HMs took up a spot and it felt like a waste, but now in gen 7 at least it’s not much of a problem at all.

      • TheReece25

        No. I mean competitive wise. I read a lot of Smogon… Tho I don’t follow it . Also on Serebii Pokemon of the week. You’ll often read they say something like.. the Pokemon has a diverse move pool but wishes it could learn another move.
        Even back then though.. people just kept a TM slave..

    • EarthenWarrior

      Hmmm if I could add the madman’s 5th slot

      Excadrill
      Earthquake, Iron Head, Rock Slide, Aerial Ace, Rapid Spin

      Nidoking
      Earth Power, Flamethrower, Tbolt, Ice Beam, Sludge Wave

      Garchomp
      Dual Chop, Earthquake, Iron Head, Crunch, Poison Jab

      • TheReece25

        I wonder if there next gimmick will be combining 2 of your 4 moves to make a fifth generic move

      • Ultron

        You’re running dual chop garchomp? Aren’t you the one always complaining about bad luck?

  • Josh Omega

    Can someone please help me out? I am trying to decide which switch game to get next. I currently own Mario odyssey, zelda breath of the wild and splatoon 2. I have sort of narrowed my list down to these games.
    Mario kart 8
    Xenoblade 2
    Arms
    Skyrim
    Doom
    Thanks in advance to anyone who helps out!

    • TheReece25

      I hear xeno sux from the fans.
      Same for arms
      Doom has same problems as Skyrim when it comes to frames and small text.. More about the portability. But I think Skyrim more popular.. I want it.
      I’d say Kart 8..
      Then Skyrim if possible
      Skyrim my next buy

      • Josh Omega

        Honestly I can live with the frame issues. I have been playing Skyrim for years now on a freaking PS3 system lol having it on the go on switch seems too good to pass up.

    • Mario Kart is great if you have friends over often. Nice and casual
      Xenoblade 2 if you can stand the overload of tutorials
      Arms is dead
      Skyrim is always fun but it’s still best on PC with mods
      Doom is fantastic

      • Ultron

        Arms is so dead

      • Doctah Govnah

        tfw arms has a active player count close to splatoon 2 still

      • Josh Omega

        I mainly want to get mario kart for when my nieces come over. Don’t get me wrong i want it as well just not as much as others lol. And are the tutorials that bad in xenoblade?

        • From what I’ve seen and judging by the previous Xenoblade games… yeahh.

          The characters designs are also hit and miss but it may not bug some people as much as it bugs others

    • TheReece25

      I regret Splatoon purchase.. I didn’t know it was wifi only… And it had a big learning curve for beginners… ☹️

      • You should probably do more research into the games you buy but like… big learning curve? No. Lol not at all

        • TheReece25

          I did research. A lot. And apparently it worked on the reviewers phone hotspot.. not mine. Also. Yes.. it pretty big. I think aiming is totally lame.. I’m sure after a Full day of practice you’d be Decent.. and even better after that. For me.. someone whose never played a splat. But that’s not what I was looking for. I’m not interested enough at least yet to put in that time. It looked casual. Maybe someday

      • Ultron

        I wouldn’t say there’s a learning curve at all. It’s probably the simplest shooter you could play.

      • Josh Omega

        I hate that that happened to you :/ and I sort of get what you mean with the aiming thing. It’s why I turned off motion controls personally on it

    • ShinyXatu

      Don’t listen to Reece, get ARMS. It was just updated to Version 5.0 and it feels like Nintendo of the future, which it is.

      • TheReece25

        Meh.. maybe I’ll watch more videos on it… But I heard it wasn’t accurate. Looking like your just flailing around hoping for something good to happen. Could be wrong.

        • It’s Christmas Charl Bron

          Motion controls aren’t necessary, and it even has button mapping

          • TheReece25

            I had no idea. But it’s just the standard fighting game without it huh? Maybe I’ll check it out. I’d rather wait for a Brawl

      • Govnah

        and we got psycho waifu doctor 😮 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hp-JqSGRxyw

        • ShinyXatu

          I played a couple rounds with her and she’s definitely closest to my play style out of all the new DLC characters. She might become my main over Byte and Barq eventually.

          • Doctah Govnah

            I havent tried her yet but I like Lola Pop rn

        • TheReece25

          Tired of the illuminati eye everywhere.. jeez. Unoriginal mfers..

          • Doctah Govnah

            The eye is suppose to represent something I cant remember what

          • TheReece25

            It’s just a common excuse

          • Doctah Govnah

            Yea but I know it represents something I dont think one eye automatically means it a reference to the Illuminati

        • Oh yeah I’m in the game

    • It’s Christmas Charl Bron

      Get ARMS my dude

      • Seraph? Alex? Or Fairy?

        Just seems those 3 are the most likely to have that name. If you’re not one of them I apologize

        • It’s Christmas Charl Bron

          Nah, I was Dazzling Rainbow Rocket Grunt before, but I had to get in the Christmas spirit 😛

    • Dicie

      MK8 only if you haven’t played the Wii U version
      Xenoblade if you’ve played the other entries (or like JRPGs)
      ARMS if you’re interested in a decent fighting game, but nothing on the level of Smash Bros or Mortal Kombat
      Skyrim if you can’t get it on another console
      Doom if you can’t get it on another console (neither port is bad, but you’d be better off with an Xbox One/PS4/PC copy)

      • Josh Omega

        Well didn’t own a Wii U at all so Mario kart 8 will be fresh to me lol that said I think I have narrowed it down to doom xenoblade and Mario kart for now. Will eventually get skyrim but I can hold off since it’s on my PS3 already lol

  • Finally think I have my idea

    I’m going to draw a bunch of Snorunt sleeping with possibly some Glalie watching over them

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Why are you using a Magby against it?

      • UnburdenedLegume

        because magby is cute?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Poor little thing doesn’t stand a chance.

    • LunaMoon

      Isn’t having two Muks albeit different forms kind of redundant?

    • TheNintendoChip

      I think this is one of the few battles where I used an X item strategically. I remember using an X Sp. Def. So using one might help? Especially on A. Muk if you have a dark-type move (I had a Honchkrow w/Foul Play)

    • FEHry

      > Uses a super specific strategy to cheese it

      Git gud ?

  • I officially will say I hate Sharpie markers!

    Whenever I need one they come in the wrong kind need one like a pen. I only have normal ones and vice versa

    I’m just gonna use pen because I’m done dealing with this stupid marker business

    • Oh and I’m gonna add Glalie and Froslass to it to fill up the sky.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Don’t you have pencils? I’d do it faintly in pencil then go over it carefully with pen.

      • I do that’s my outline after I’m going over with pen and then erase the pencil underneath

  • LunaMoon

    Ugh I hate permanent heart palpitations :/

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You seen a doctor about it?

      • LunaMoon

        No as I don’t think it’s really a dangerous thing but it has been quite a pest.

        • EarthenWarrior

          Well palpitations aren’t dangerous they just try to avoid stress and anxiety and sugary things like soda and coffee

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It could be an early sign of something else, I don’t mean to worry you but you should probably get checked out.

          • LunaMoon

            Ah ok.

    • TheNintendoChip

      I think we all have some health-related issue we wish we didn’t have.

      • LunaMoon

        I especially wish this wasn’t there :/

        • TheNintendoChip

          You really should see a doctor. There may be other stuff that’s wrong that you don’t know about that could come back to bite you (speaking from experience).

          • LunaMoon

            I feel like it’s probably caused by a ton of sugary/sweet treats as it seems to increase depending on how much sugary stuff i have. At least that’s what I hope is the issue :/

          • TheNintendoChip

            That may be what causes it, but the fact that it happens at all suggests that there’s some kind of abnormality. Let’s say my car A/C works above 70 deg F, but doesn’t below it. If I keep my A/C at 70 deg F, I would never know there was a problem. But let’s say I lower it to 65 and it starts having issues. Of course I could easily just turn it up to 70 and forget about it, but that doesn’t change the fact that something wrong happens below 70 degrees.

          • TheNintendoChip

            I should also add, like @Monkeyfuzz:disqus, that I’m not trying to scare you. I’ve just gone through serious health (cardiac) problems because I didn’t get some stuff checked out that I really should have.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Hope you’re doing better now.

          • TheNintendoChip

            I am, thank you!

          • LunaMoon

            Ah ok I understand, and wow, I hope you’re better now.

Up until now I’ve only ever been able to find them on websites with crappy players and desynced audio. this should be good stuff for me. Good thing I have Verizon

  • Well got done all but most of the coloring of Glalie and Froslass plus the scenery… It took 6 attempts to not screw up those damn little Snorunts

        If it didn’t have Serene Grace it would be worthless

        • Ultron

          Well though generally I do value pokemon more on their designs than on competitive ability, yes, if it didn’t have serene grace it would need something else to make it good at battling.

            Because say it with me “60% chance to flinch is nucking futs”

    • The Butter Grinch

      So a diffrent Spin on a Barnacle pokemon?

      • EarthenWarrior

        in a way, i mean Barnacles cling to hulls of boats and sea creatures but not so much a parasitic way more of they just anchored down and are a jerk to get off

        and i wanted a Poison/Steel type that made sense so i decided on a metal eating barnacle that feeds off steel types, they melt holes in the armor, latch on and gradually dissolve the metal for nutrients to make their own steel bodies

    • FEHry

      The name is a bit of a mouthful but nice concept

      • EarthenWarrior

        i’m very much working on a name and its way better than Barbor its original name

        • FEHry

          Toxicle? Barnox/Barnoxic/Barnoxicle? Nah those suck

          • LunaMoon

            Besides Barnoxcile sounds like Barbaracle.

          • FEHry

            Eelektrik Electrike

          • LunaMoon

            Yungoose Zangoose

          • FEHry

            Those sound nothing alike lol

          • LunaMoon

            Yes they do. The operative word here is goose.

          • FEHry

            They don’t sound alike at all tho. Not to the same extent of Eelektrik and Electrike. They have extent distinct beginnings.

          • EarthenWarrior

            it’s hard our brains just try to play with the barn suffix and force it
            Anchrust? Anchor and Rust?

          • FEHry

            I’d just skip the barnacle bit for the name and go for something easier. Remember that they don’t have to be perfect portmanteaus as well, but it’s still super hard

          • EarthenWarrior

            Same with one of my hardest names ever MY EFFING LUCK DRAGON

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Ah OK, interesting to know.

        • The Butter Grinch

          Yup

  • Shady

    They looks great here specially my dude. http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1514013233527.jpg

    • FEHry

      The problem with Inci is that it looks good in dynamic poses but its official art and in game animations are quite reserved and involve very little movement

      • Shady

        Agree……they should give him this pose in the game , and some of his facial expression kinda sucks in the movie ….those lazy artist but look at him here.

      • LunaMoon

        Plus its battle regular animation is like “Come here child I have some candy, heh, heh, heh. Come here so I can give ya some delicious candy.” He looks like a pervert trying to lure in innocent people/Pokemon.

        • Shady

          I call it taunt attitude

          • FEHry

            They could’ve made the taunt far better tho

          • Shady

            Like wat?

          • LunaMoon

            Like make it less perverted.

          • Shady

            This’s only ur dirty mind

          • FEHry

            More aggressive and less wavy arms

        • FEHry

          I wouldn’t go that far but okay

      • I should also note I will have Dewgong and Incineroar by then and if I’m lucky Hakamo-o too

        • FEHry

          Overlevel much? :p

          • LunaMoon

            Naw.

          • FEHry

            Yes.

          • LunaMoon

            Nope. My Primarina was at lvl 35 when I battled Olivia. I don’t think Kurusu is overleveled.

          • FEHry

            We’ve been over this. You were overlevelling. Nothing wrong with it but you have to acknowledge you were making the game way easier for yourself lol

          • Dude I fought Hau the other day and was underleveled (Lvl.30 Dartrix) now your telling me the Totem is less than this?

  • LunaMoon

    I had no idea that Zangoose and Yungoose were Geese Pokemon…wow…the more you know.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Cat Ferret

      • LunaMoon

        I Torracat into pieces.

        • EarthenWarrior

          no i mean Zangoose a mongoose esque pokemon is classified as the Cat Ferret Pokemon

    I just saved Pumba from being eaten by two Red Bokoblins!

    • The Butter Grinch

      What the f*ck?

      • LunaMoon

        What I mean is that I killed two Bokoblins who were chasing this boar. But that boar looked like Pumba so I made a hee hee.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Great, now YOU can eat it

  • LunaMoon

    OMG I just came up with this ingenious alliteration/tongue twister:

    Polish Poles polish poles.

    Whaddaya think?

    • EarthenWarrior

      uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh you do know what a a pole polisher is right?

      • LunaMoon

        Yes, a person who polishes poles. Stop sign poles, school crossing poles, and so on!

        • EarthenWarrior

          Oral sex

          • LunaMoon

            Well that’s not what I meant.

          • EarthenWarrior

            well that’s what IT means,

          • LunaMoon

            I didn’t watch that movie so how should’ve I known what that meant.

    • FEHry

      No one cares

      • LunaMoon

        Fine!

    • No one cares

      • LunaMoon

        OK

  • EarthenWarrior

    i’m still in a Fakemon mood but what is left…..Sand Snake, Kickin Kangaroo, Manatee

    • The Butter Grinch

      Sand snake sounds interesting

      • EarthenWarrior

        Sanwurm-Servepent-Pharobra
        Ground/Dark Snake that is almost always underground, but as it evolves into a cocoon like snake it hides in caves and creates a charming hissing melody that lures prey close to to it and finally a colossal sand cobra that creates mirages with the organs in its hood and waits for prey

        • The Butter Grinch

          It’s not Poison!

          • The Butter Grinch

            *?

          • EarthenWarrior

            it WAS poison but i changed it

          • The Butter Grinch

            Why?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Because it wasn’t really venomous

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Not all snakes have poison.

          • Serperior is a great example of this… I still wonder why they decided pure grass was the best type for it

          • FEHry

            Because it’s a constrictor and isn’t based on a venomous snake. No other type really fits its design

          • It seems odd though cause its design could have slightly altered it to add something else

            Though off the type of my head Steel is what comes to mind with how metal can be constricted and what not. I’m at peace that its pure Grass however

          • FEHry

            Why would they change a design they’re happy with to add a second type they don’t need to?

            And what does metal have to do with snakes :0

          • Ultron

            Honestly I thought grass/electric would’ve been cool for Serperior. It would use electricity to paralyze its victims instead of venom. And the electric type would emphasize its speed.

          • FEHry

            But the design doesn’t reflect electricity at all

          • Ultron

            Well yeah this was before serperior was revealed.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Actually an interview said it was meant to be Grass/Dragon but decided against it due to being overpowered

          • Ultron

            Wow that’s really disappointing. Draco Meteor contrary ughhhh screw you, gamefreak.

          • FEHry

            In game balance > comp

          • Ultron

            Serperior stats aren’t that great though and adding dragon to its typing wouldn’t unbalance it at all. Just make it slightly bulkier. Its still better than the other two though even without dragon

    • Like when Seraph would post like 4 comments in a row? Most of those were pretty interesting

    • Ultron

      Same though. Sorry, everyone, but random sh*t about your day and fanmons are not interesting, especially since we get like 50+ fanmons every hour

      • So you basically just called me a sh*tposter

        Well, then I guess I stop causing you all so much trouble.

        • -.-

        • Ultron

          I like a fanmon every so often…but there are so many. It’s just not interesting for me to read them all. I’m not trying to speak for everyone, I’m sure some people like them all

            They are 80% Earthens. Also you can choose not to read them. I’ve done a few but probably won’t bother again.

            Come up with some yourself then.

          • Ultron

            I try…Can’t exactly carry the whole site though

          • Monkeyfuzz

            What can we do? There’s no news to discuss, I’m sure people do try to come up with interesting topics if they can.

          • Ultron

            Idk but posting things not worthy of discussion just clogs up the feed

          • FEHry

            It’s annoying having to minimise them every time you refresh or leave the page with the sheer quantity

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Don’t worry, I won’t do any more.

          • TheNintendoChip

            I think it would be more advantageous to save them somewhere online–Like github or something? And then post a link saying that you have some new ones and give the names if people want to look at them.

          • FEHry

            This is exactly what I think should be done tbh, much more convenient for everyone involved.

      • FEHry

        It’d be alright if the posts about that stuff weren’t 24/7. It’s okay rarely, entertaining even, but Fakémons especially oversaturate

        • Ultron

          Sometimes it feels like fanmon jungle

          • FEHry

            Eeyup, I’ve tried to endorse the use of sharing sites and even a discord but that failed

          • Ultron

            I tried using the discord, but it’s worse. Random sh*t I can’t follow at all

          • FEHry

            It was a separate one because I’m not a big fan of crowded channels lol

          • Ultron

            Oh well good luck getting that going haha

          • FEHry

            It failed, this was a a ages ago :p

    • Natale

      Shots fired? Shots fired

    • Does that name change mean you’ve finally played Fire Emblem Heroes?

      • Natale

        Nah, Earthen’s feh reference

    • LunaMoon

      Ok

  • LunaMoon

    I hope for Pokemon Switch the following happens:
    – A significant decrease in Normal-type Pokemon (they’re fairly boring, and too many Gen 7 Pokemon were Normal type)
    – Between 90-110 Pokemon (not too little, not too many)
    – References to regions other than Kanto (Alola felt like its own Hawaii)
    – More customization of clothing
    – Return of Gyms (honestly, Trials should be left in Zelda and Gen 7 of Pokemon.)
    – Titles are based on gems/colours, not random opposite stuff (For example, Amethyst and Topaz, not something like Water and Land or Happy and Sad).
    – Legendaries that when collided create an amazing mixture (example: Amethyst Legendary colliding with Topaz Legendary creating a sparkling Amethyst-Topaz combination Legendary)
    – Return of Pokemon Contests (felt that good games/anime have Contests of sorts)
    – The region’s team being subtly based on famous revolutionary groups (The Bolsheviks, the Confederates, the Viet Cong, the Ayatollah supporters, etc…), and with a similar plan (ex. they think that the current society of the region is too imperialist and unfair and wish to completely rule over and create an equal society.)
    – New Mega Evolutions (honestly they should make this as regular as customization or special/physical split)
    – Very quick and convenient online area, not too slow and time-consuming as Festival Plaza.
    – No weirdo Professor like Kukui (had too much going on, talked in an increasingly annoying way)
    – Team is actually evil and threatening, not too edgy or meme-centric like Skull.
    – Significant increase in snowy areas, significant decline in tropical areas (because of Alola obviously)

    And if they do at least half of these I’ll be happy.

    • LunaMoon

      Oh also forgot:
      NO. TALKING. POKEDEX.

    • Ultron

      I really don’t think there should be multiple titles. $120 for both games plus having to pay for online use with the switch is just way too much. I will not be buying both versions if they continue to do this.

      I really liked Kukui though, but was slightly uncomfortable they kept talking about why he didn’t wear a shirt

      • LunaMoon

        Meh, I feel like people would complain about why there was only 1 version of Gen 8. They could just make both $60 so if you buy BOTH it’ll be $120, but I guess you’re right about the price.

        • Ultron

          Well yeah of course they’ll be $60, I’m saying it’ll be $120 if you want both

        • FEHry

          Why would they complain about buying the same game twice?

      • Doctah Govnah

        Fun Fact. Its up to the dev of the games if they want to use the paid online service

        • Ultron

          Really? So they could make wifi battling and trading a thing even if you didn’t pay for nintendo’s service?

          • Doctah Govnah

            yea thats right!

          • Ultron

            That’s pretty interesting

    • Doctah Govnah

      so basically anything that isnt gen 7 😛

      • LunaMoon

        Kinda yeah

  • FEHry

    What are some things you hope GameFreak changes next game? Not stuff like ‘I hope this comes back’ or ‘I hope this is added/removed’, like existing things you want to be altered

    • LunaMoon

      I hope they alter Normal types to become the least common type. I like all types BUT Normal. Disgusting bland whacks who don’t deserve so much spots.

      • Natale

        They’re called normal because they’re supposed to be common. And there’s plenty of normal Pkms that aren’t “disgusting whacks”

    • Ultron

      -No two versions is probably the biggest.
      -Useless event legendaries. Put them all in the f*cking game. That or just don’t have extra unnecessary legendaries
      -How limited hair options are for males. Similarly, I’d just like more customization. There are characters with blue and green hair, why can’t we have that?

      Probably more stuff, I’ll have to think

      • FEHry

        Events are there for promotion. They’re probably not going anywhere sadly

        • Ultron

          I know, but at least a return to gen 4’s handling of it would be nice

    • >refer to my longass post I made a few days ago about encounters and stuff

      Open world

      Gyms to come back BUT they’re more like shrines where they’re scattered around the map and they’re smaller kind of challenges with puzzles and a leader at the end. The leaders would just be NPCs but there could still be trials as the big main challenges

      • Ultron

        Would the gym leaders just be throwaway characters though? Or generally memorable and have a role in the story like gen 5?

        • Yeah they would be but the trial captains would be the important ones

        • LunaMoon

          Personally hoping for the former as I disliked Gen 5.

          • Ultron

            Bruh you only got to the 3rd gym leader so I’m discounting your opinion

          • LunaMoon

            Don’t care. I still will dislike it. Even if I made it to the end, I’ll dislike it. I mean, after battling Ghetsis in G5, I didn’t really find him appealing so I doubt I’d have found the main story appealing. Plus, I hated N as I felt he was just some whiny brat who hogs the spotlight.

          • That’s a horrible attitude

          • LunaMoon

            Well I disliked Gen 5 especially considering how it’s based off entirely of a city, which i found idiotic. Plus it geographically doesn’t make sense. Desert to the south of a city and a lush forest in the north? How does that work?

          • Natale

            It’s a videogame for children, why are those things supposed to matter?

          • LunaMoon

            Even Mario has geographically made sense in many games, like Odyssey, having the regions at generally safe distances from each other.

          • Natale

            Still, that’s not necessary it won’t add anything, they wanted to make the region more biologically diverse and if they stuck to these rules they wouldn’t be able to do that

          • Ultron

            Unova is one of the best regions. Every part you enter is unique and memorable.

          • LunaMoon

            Meh, I still prefer Gen 6, 4, 2, 3 and 7 over it.

          • Ultron

            Objectively most of those are much weaker than gen 5.

          • LunaMoon

            Not really.

          • Ultron

            Yes really. They tried really hard to stuff the game full of new experiences for players and it paid off. Gen 6 in comparison was a lazy introduction to 3D graphics and that’s just about it

          • LunaMoon

            I still enjoyed its cultural influence, it was a neat touch.

          • Ultron

            I still don’t understand how you can fault unova for going from city to desert when Kalos has a permanent snow location not 10 feet from a swamp. That’s just kinda how pokemon regions are

          • Natale

            >Placing gen 6 before 5

          • LunaMoon

            So? I like Gen 6 and am proud.

          • It’s based on New York State.

            And they BASED it on it. It’s not going to be 100% accurate because the region needs to be diverse

            Gen 5 is like the best in the franchise. You only got to gym 3 how are you supposed to know how the rest of the game is?

          • LunaMoon

            By watching other people play and see if I would enjoy continuing off from Gym 3?

          • I mean.. why not just play it your self

            I’d reccomend chuggaconroy. He’s playing through it now and uploads daily

          • LunaMoon

            I do watch him although so far the game seems a bit boring than usual.

          • Also

            Alola has a fucking wild Wild West town in it. I don’t see you complaining about that

          • LunaMoon

            Yes, a Wild West Town, but literally not an entirely different biome.

          • Ultron

            Still bugs me they won’t let us go into most of those building in that town. Lazyyyyy

          • FEHry

            It’s based on a state. And it’s in a world where rats shoot electricity lol.

          • Ultron

            Ghetsis is not even a major character. You don’t need to like him. N isn’t whiny at all, he’s nonchalant.

          • LunaMoon

            Either way didn’t like him.

          • Ultron

            Well I can’t think of a pokemon game where I enjoy every character so I still don’t get your issue

    • Natale

      – Gym leaders to be important to the plot again, like really there’s always a region threatening even and they do nothing ( that’s why I like gen 5 gym leaders)

      – The region to be less linear and let us explore more but i know they won’t do it cuz pkm need to be simpler enough for kids

      – Make cities bigger pls :3

      – That Z-Moves have animations for both physical and special attacks

  • The Butter Grinch

    Guys
    It’s right before Christmas
    Do you really have fight now?

    • Ultron

      Honey, this is banter. You do not want to see me fighting

    • LunaMoon

      No but I have to defend my opinion especially as many here consider my dislike for Gen 5 obsolete.

      • The Butter Grinch

        No, you don’t

      • Your opinion isn’t valid because you didn’t even play half the damn game

        • The Butter Grinch

          Star… really?
          Remember when I told everyone that they should like Incineroar?
          That was dumb.
          I stopped that.
          Just let them think what they want.

          • Natale

            You don’t criticize a movie without watching it

            Same with videogames

          • The Butter Grinch

            I’m saying LunaMoon is right, I’m saying they have the right to have an opinion on a game.

          • Natale

            That they’ve fully played

          • The Butter Grinch

            Stop

          • Natale

            Make me 😉

          • FEHry

            Kuppo pls

          • LunaMoon

            I found the game fairly boring anyways so I didn’t just stop as I got stuck on Gym 3, i didn’t like the game and found it fairly boring. Sure, you can say “But the real events happen later”, I didn’t really find it too fun up until tat point. I just felt…obliged to complete and play the game.

          • When did you even play it?

          • LunaMoon

            Early this year.

          • If you got through USUM you can get through BW

          • LunaMoon

            My Pokemon are too underleveled and unlike S/M/US/UM, there aren’t any fun or easy ways to level up.

          • FEHry

            So basically you’re saying a kids game is too hard for you when it’s considered one of the easiest games in he franchise

          • ….
            yes there is

            Audinos appear in shaking grass. Seriously you can just walk back and forth and the grass will shake and you can encounter Audino. They give you a bunch of XP

            It’s also better to not raise too many pokemon at once early on because XP Gain is higher if you are lower level than the opponent and gradually lowered if you are higher leveled

          • Re:Seraph

            Ayy you, dino

          • LunaMoon

            Well I didn’t know about Audino/Blissey cheats at that time.

          • Natale

            Welp that’s fair I guess, I’m just saying that when someone says that a game sucks without experiencing it is just wrong.

            And I’m surprised you fully played SM considering how much boring the beginning of that game was

          • LunaMoon

            I have to admit it was fairly boring and I found some of the character to be annoying, such as Kukui who now I realized how much I’m annoyed of him, Hau, the mother as I found her to be irritating and lazy, Hala and the entire Iki Town as their traditions weren’t too interesting, and just Melemele wasn’t too exciting.

          • FEHry

            They can have an opinion on the game, I think it’s just rubbing people the wrong way that they’re judging the whole game without experiencing it. They’re allowed to dislike it I agree but they shouldn’t be criticising it as if they experienced the whole product 😡

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Unless it’s something like the Emoji one.

          • FEHry

            Eh, she has a point but she worded it quite harshly

          • Yeah but if they’re saying

            “This game sucks”

            Then says

            “I didn’t even finish half of it”

            Then their opinion isn’t based on anything and so it’s ridiculous to say that.

            If they play the game and still don’t like it, then fine. Whatever.

    • EarthenWarrior

      We gotta be ready for Boxing Day

    • Natale

      Just because people disagree and argue about something doesn’t mean they’re ‘fighting’ ??

    • FEHry

      When you get older you care less and less about how christmas affects your online life

      • The Butter Grinch

        Why tho?

        • FEHry

          Because unless you’re religious it’s pretty much just a financial holiday and spending time with your family. 23rd of December is nothing special to me. Tomorrow I’d be spending time with family and on the 25th I’ll be with family being too drunk to care about people’s terrible opinions

          • The Butter Grinch

            But… can’t you just treat it as few days when you’re nicer to others than usual?

          • FEHry

            Why should the time of the year influence how nice I am? I’ll probably be nice on Christmas to anyone I see because it’s a holiday but a random day isn’t going to make me nicer. Especially when the people I’m arguing with aren’t exactly saints themselves lol

          • The Butter Grinch

            Because Why not. You don’t have to always be nice to everyone, Christmas is just a time of the year when it’s a tradition to be nicer. So… just try it. There’s No reason not to. It’s not hard.

          • FEHry

            Fam. If people start debates you’re gonna debate. To be honest, people here aren’t even being that mean or rude. A lot of it is banter or just being direct, not being mean on purpose. It’s not my fault if people can’t handle debating. There’s being nice which is easy and avoiding offending absolutely anyone which is hard because people nowadays are softer than toilet paper and think everything is mean when it’s really not

    • Yes

  • Ultron

    Guys..I bought Ultra Moon for christmas, but I think I’m going to return it. I just don’t know if I can replay Alola again. Really the only thing I wanted from the UM was shiny Stakataka/Stakataka in general, but maybe I can get one on the GTS.. :/ This will be the first pokemon game that I don’t have both versions

    • The Butter Grinch

      Maybe make it a Nuzlocke?

      • Ultron

        Never done that. At best I’d do a wonderlock. That might be more fun

    • FEHry

      I’ve never seen the point of buying both versions. I did it on a cheap impulse buy for Moon (which was second hand) but tbh its just fueling a bad business model and is a waste of your money especially when bank can hold Mons if you wanna reset

      • Ultron

        It’s more just getting rid of all my items and stuff that I stockpile.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Don’t see why we can’t have an item bank.

          • Ultron

            I would so pay for it..

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It should just be part of Pokebank. that already costs more than enough.

          • Ultron

            I definitely agree. Maybe one day? I don’t see why it couldn’t be implemented

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Just stop Key Items, Z-crystals and I guess Mega Stones from being deposited if they are a concern. If you are depositing them in bank you’ve obviously already played so you aren’t really gaining an unfair advantage. There’s really nothing stopping them imo.

      • The Butter Grinch

        I like the two versions thing, tho I’d never buy both

        • FEHry

          Why tho. It’s such a bad business model that excuses them grabbing money and removing content

          • The Butter Grinch

            I like the choice aspect, I like the diffrences

          • FEHry

            Choices and differences can still exist on a single game

          • Natale

            The “differences” barely any worthwhile to buy a game you already have for same price

          • Ultron

            Their differences are never enough to justify $40 tho.

          • Ariel

            This right here. I think the only games that were truly big differences were Black/2 and White/2 and even then it wasn’t by that much.

          • The Butter Grinch

            I can agree with that. IMO if you bought one version, you should get a 75% discount for the second one.

          • Natale

            GF would completely remove double features before doing that lol

      • EarthenWarrior

        I’ve bought both versions for two purposes
        -I want the option to replay the game with a different team (usually as a Ground Mono, the only way i can continue calling myself a Ground type master is to go through every region with a monotype team)
        -I collect the cases to display on my mantle
        -extra legends or storage

        • FEHry

          > Bank
          > Wouldn’t need to be done if there was only one game
          > Bank/GTS

          And you’re not a true ground master until you use Pizza Wormadam :p

          • EarthenWarrior

            Wormadam Sandy Cloak doesn’t exists, it is a myth

          • FEHry

            I’m just sad it isn’t a special attacker when it has the potential to be okay in game if it just got Quiver Dance/Bug Buzz/Earth Power

          • EarthenWarrior

            uh it has Quiver Dance now

          • FEHry

            But it has the lowest sp attack of all Wormadam

          • EarthenWarrior

            i know……..Look it’s a total fop…..Hell i rather use Nincada….again…..
            in AS i used a Nincada and Everstoned it

          • Ultron

            No eviolite? You crazy?

            Look it was just a throwaway mon

            Claydol
            Flygon
            Whiscash

            At least i had 6, usually its at most 5……..I WANT A FULL FLEDGED GROUND MONO TEAM AGAIN

          • Re:Seraph

            You should have used Trapinch

            …….I did…..den it evolved………

          • Re:Seraph

            I mean two
            One as a flygon
            One as an Arena trap overlord

          • EarthenWarrior

            nope not happening and its already done

          • Re:Seraph

            Already done? Niceeee

          • FEHry

            You used Silvally and Zygarde in Alola yet? 10% Zygarde is super fun to use

          • EarthenWarrior

            I didn’t use Zygarde as it is a Legend and Silvally is kinda the same ball park but since you got it post it doesn’t count

            the goal of a monotype run is to use the native ground types and only use them until you are the new champion

          • FEHry

            Silvally is weaker than the pseudos and so is Zygarde. Their legendary title is for lore, not game play

          • EarthenWarrior

            true true but the deed is done, maybe i’ll do it whenever i feel like deleting moon

          • Ultron

            10% form only has a base stat total of 486 though. That’s not even good. You’ve used pokemon with more than that on a playthrough. Hell, Garchomp has way more than that being a pseudo.

          • FEHry

            It needs buffed, as do all the Wormadam. Barely used Trash because it has good defense typing

          • Ultron

            If only gamefreak cared enough to go back and buff the horrible pokemon they leave in the dust 😛

          • EarthenWarrior

            literally its covered in dust

          • Ultron

            It’s a perfect example then :I

          • FEHry

            Eh they minor buff a few but not fast enough

          • Ultron

            Did they buff any pokemon stat wise in gen 7? I know they did in gen 6

          • FEHry

            Quite a few iirc

          • FEHry
          • Ultron

            Thanks. Now I do remember hearing about that mantine buff. I do wish they would go back and help the horrible pre-gen-5 bug pokemon they made. At least mega beedrill is a thing

          • FEHry

            Regional bugs should all get a buff of +20 with the rodents and birds getting between +15 and +10 tbh

          • Ultron

            Exactly. They actually care about bug type now so it’s only fair they fix their past mistakes. I mean Vikavolt is pretty good. Compare it to the likes of ledian and the difference is crazy

          • Ariel

            Ledian sucks soooooo much. I hella agree with you. This game had so many fun bug types!

          • Ultron

            Ledian is the worst. I actually hate it more than Wormadam because at least wormadam is interesting with its gimmicky evolutions and form stuff

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Maybe they should evolve again along with Mothim.

      • Natale

        They’re gonna still do it because of how much money it makes, but hopefully Switch changes that like seriously, making USUM a double version instead of being a single one like every other third version before is pushing it

    • Armaggedon16

      I know how you feel man. I’m at the beginning of ula ula but i just can’t pick it up and play, which is wierd Because i loved alola the first time i played it

      • Ultron

        There’s just something about Alola that’s a drag..I could play Unova a hundred times through

        • FEHry

          Melemele and story. Quite easy to name :p

          • Ultron

            Melemele indeed sucks, but so does ula ula other than Malie city 😛 And Akala really isn’t very exciting either

          • FEHry

            I like Ula’ula but the pacing is iffy. So much back and forth and it’s extremely vacant.

          • Ultron

            That’s my issue with it. There’s really nothing there. Almost of all of it is covered by these largely unexplorable two mountains. Really when you add up how much can be explored on the island, it’s the smallest, which is funny considering they market it to us as being the “biggest”

        • Natale

          The tutorial and huge amounts of dialogue

          • Ultron

            Probably like 95% of the problem :I

            If only you could disable them

          • If you could disable them the game would be like three hours long lol

          • Ultron

            And it would be a great game lol

          • LunaMoon

            I liked Gen 7 but I can agree that USUM were fairly mediocre games, because of the fact ~75% of the stuff from S/M still existed in the game and we had to do the boring tutorial once again.

    • LunaMoon

      I assume you bought Ultra Sun as you can’t get Stakataka from regular Sun and Moon.

  • LunaMoon

    Meh in order to stop all this fighting I’ll just say I dislike Gen 5 but I admit that I haven’t gotten the full experience so if I decide to finish it I might change my opinion, but so far IMO I don’t like Gen 5.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Alright i gotta go, i left a list of emergency numbers in the oven and a ham on the fridge

  • Armaggedon16

    I miss pre-sumo jungle when it wasn’t a shithole

  • LunaMoon

    I’m going to go off PJ a while because I think most people here dislike me considering i dislike Gen 5 and the fact almost every comment arguing about my points are upvoted.

    • FEHry

      We don’t dislike you. We disagree with your opinion. People here do this to even their best friends on here. It’s just that people exaggerate their responses on the Internet

    • Ultron

      Yeah we don’t dislike you bruh

    • Armaggedon16

      Disagreeing with you=/= diskliking you

    • thats not why we dislike you

      • Natale

        We do?

      • FEHry

        Um a bit harsh 😡

        • Re:Seraph

          But isn’t it wrong to lie?

      • LunaMoon

        Ah alright. Although it still means I’m doing something wrong at least I’m not being too much of an annoyance.

    • The Butter Grinch

      It’s not that bad, I wouldn’t say most people dislike you

      • LunaMoon

        Oh okie.

  • Re:Seraph

    A kid was nutting inside of a cabinet at school yesterday and I’m scared

    • Ariel

      WTF???

      • Re:Seraph

        I don’t know either tbh

    • Ultron

      Wtf..

      • Re:Seraph

        American education

        • Ultron

          Not surprised I guess

          • Re:Seraph

            I’m spooked

          • FEHry

            How can a ghost be spooked

          • Re:Seraph

            We’re weak to ourselves, it’s very possible

    • Monkeyfuzz
      • Re:Seraph

        This is what I deal with on a daily basis

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It was secretly you wasn’t it?

          • Re:Seraph

            Nope
            Ironically it was the kid who does the announcements

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Did he also announce it?

          • Re:Seraph

            Not over the loudspeaker but yes

    • FEHry

      He was LARPing battling as an Incineroar

      • Re:Seraph

        WELP

    • Natale

      Should’ve joined him

      • Re:Seraph

        He wasn’t even attractive or anything

        • Natale

          Eww avoid him!

          • Re:Seraph

            *swooces away*

        • Ultron

          Probably explains why he was doing it then

          • Re:Seraph

            hjkjlkj

  • FEHry

    So we all noticed Wormadam

    But I didn’t realise it was Mothim

    I feel dumb lol

    • Re:Seraph

      GODDAMNIT I’M BLIND

    • Ultron

      I’m impressed you figured that out

    • oh my god thats so clever

    • Natale

      Everything makes sense now

    • The Butter Grinch

      Same…

  • Ultron

    Am I a sh*thole for actually liking Battlefront 2?? lol…like I like the offline modes and play those a lot. I have my fair share of complaints about the game of course, but it’s not the travesty I was lead to believe.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Back when everything was in the game to start with.

        • Ultron

          At least the DLC is free. Big part of why I didn’t buy the sh*t they tried to call “battlefront 1”

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Is it? I thought that was half the complaints?

          • Ultron

            Yes, all DLC for BF2 is free. Though who’s to say how much DLC they will be doing now that the game has underperformed. They already released Crait/Phasma/Finn a little over a week ago.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Probably the largest screen time Phasma will get.

          • Ultron

            Don’t remind meeeeee. She’s really fun to play as though and I think deserves her spot in the game. Other than Kylo Ren she’s pretty much the only sequel trilogy villain that would be marketable/fun to play as. Plus I get to hear Gwendoline Christie’s voice more in my life, which is never a bad thing.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Star Wars TLJ spoiler: Once again they bigged up her part in promotional material and she was on like 2 minutes before the explosion. If she’s somehow back in the next one and they do it again I will laugh and also be somewhat annoyed.

      • Ultron

        ‘Twas a great game, though it’s quite out of date. Graphics aren’t even the issue. I still like a lot of things that game did and wish the new ones implemented them

        • It’s super cheap on Steam right now. I may pick it up idk

          • correction: it was. damn, should’ve gotten it while it was literally a dollar

          • Ultron

            Man. People were probably buying it left and right instead of the new one so they probs upped the price because of that haha

    • FEHry

      As far as I’ve heard, people are okay with the game play, just not the business model

      • Ultron

        Pretty much my thoughts. Really just I hate the “progression” system. I don’t like that obtaining star cards is up to chance. You should unlock them with milestones you complete/be able to buy specific ones with your credits and then just upgrade the ones you buy with the credits you earn (which is what you kinda already do)

        And then the arcade mode is fun, but the selection of maps for it is very limited and you also can’t do starfighter assault offline. A few more months would’ve been good for this game.

    • Re:Seraph

      It depends, do you acknowledge that the game had no right to live considering other games that died?
      If so, you aren’t

      • Ultron

        Explain. What games died?

        • Re:Seraph

          Evolve for example. It died because of its dlc plan compared to like battlefront that lived

          • Ultron

            Tbh I don’t know anything about that. >.> From what I hear though, BF2 isn’t exactly living, more surviving than anything. If only they had fixed these issues before the game launched.

    • Natale

      Star wars fans reeeeeally like to exaggerate, like if something doesn’t come close as being good to the originals, a lot of them start calling that product trash

      So I guess same applies to videogames

      • I dont think this is the same thing. EA fucked it up baaaaaaad

        • Natale

          EA fuccs something bad, the earth is still spinning.

          But seriously what this time? They had everything going for this game -_-

          • This game actually is having an industry wide effect as it really kicked off the anti lootbox train. Apple is even self regulating the lootboxes in games on the app store. And thank god for that

        • Ultron

          Really it’s just the progression system that’s bad (which the lotto boxes is kind of integral to). Which of course is a fair reason not to buy the game, it’s a large part of your experience. I just wouldn’t say that what is currently in the game makes it unfun to play though, just rather imperfect.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Honestly reading stuff people post about the latest movie I have to agree.

      • Ultron

        Well yeah star wars fan are largely toxic.

    • The Butter Grinch

      One of my friends say that they think it’s Good

      • Natale

        Watch that friend be Ultron, as he remains the only person that likes Battlefront 2 :PP

        • Ultron

          No, but it might be my brother. He’s obsessed on an annoying level. Like play some other games.

          • The Butter Grinch

            Yeah, that friend isn’t that obsessed

  • The Butter Grinch
    • FEHry

      And that something is jack shieeeett :p

    • Doctah Govnah

      he doesnt know anything…. now your taking every tweet he says as something for the future

      • The Butter Grinch

        Probably

    • Natale

      Half of his tweet gets posted here I swear to dog

      • The Butter Grinch

        Nah, he tweets a lot, what we post here is like 5% of his tweets

        • Natale

          Hyperbole son

          And you guys still post a lot of his tweets tho

  • FEHry

    How much would you changed, irl and in the Jungle, over the past year?

    • Doctah Govnah

      i got more annoyed by all of you

    • The Butter Grinch

      I think I’m a little bit less dumb and annoying now

      • Doctah Govnah

        nah you still annoying

        • The Butter Grinch

          That’s why I said ”a little bit less”

          • Doctah Govnah

            nah u haven’t changed

          • FEHry

            Either have you :p

      • FEHry

        Eh you were new, we all have that newbie phase lol

    • well i found out that im actually a gay cat girl

      • FEHry

        Eww furries

        • Natale

          Eww you ?

      • The Butter Grinch

        You realised that you’re gay this year? Wow, that has to be a major change

        • oh wait i didnt realize he said over the past year oops.

          • The Butter Grinch

            lol

        • Natale

          Well I realised that last year when I was still here and that wasn’t a major change at all for me 😡

          • the real major change for me was the girl part. the gay part was pretty easy

          • The Butter Grinch

            Well yeah that makes sense

        • Re:Seraph

          It’s nowhere as big as you’d think

          • FEHry

            Ehh really depends on the person

          • Re:Seraph

            Tru

      • THIS YEAR: I’m (usually not always) more level headed, my artistic abilities have gotten way better (shoutouts to Kienan Lafferty for making the best art videos on youtube) and I cried alot because of Breath of the Wild being so good

    • Re:Seraph

      I managed to grow figure life out a tad more and my self hatred increased tenfold

    • Natale

      I’m smarter :^)

      But no seriously I’m kinda more open now and much less afraid of interacting with other people

      • Natale

        Meant to spoiler ffs

        • Natale

          Yeah Seraph, commenting to your own comment does wonders

          • Re:Seraph

            *dabs*

    • Armaggedon16

      Irl, a lot. I’ve become more angry and done with People. But ive also become much more active in school and everything else. In the jungle, I talk more now.

    • Ultron

      I rediscovered how stupid love is and am back to accepting that I will die alone.

      I graduated college and also became the self-appointed acting President of the Sinnoh & Unova defense league. You say some sh*t about my regions and you get rekt

      • Re:Seraph

        I’ll defend Unova too

      • I found out that getting into a relationship with a girl you don’t actually like that much is a bad idea because she turns out to be… odd

        • Re:Seraph

          I learned that 17 years of being single does a number on someone’s pyche

          • TheNintendoChip

            I was there too but it didn’t really affect me..? Idk I just never really cared and figured it’ll happen when it happens.

          • Re:Seraph

            I’m sensitive as fuckc

        • Ultron

          I did something like that once. Except I knew the girl for a long time before so I didn’t find anything out about her, just that I was a horrible person

          • *hugs*

          • Ultron

            -hugs back-

            we stopped being friends for like 4 years ever since we broke up looool. But now we’re talking again, which is nice

    • TheNintendoChip

      Irl a lot (in chronological order): Got into a research lab, started my (first) relationship, died, got hella depressed, exhausted, and angry, became more social, got nominated for a super prestigious scholarship.

      • FEHry

        Ayy! Glad to hear about the good stuff!

        • TheNintendoChip

          I’ve mostly recovered from all the other bad stuff. I normally have a short temper but I can usually control it. I was recently put on some new medicine that exacerbated it, plus stress from school. The other bad stuff came from side effects, I think. I switched medicine and everything seemed to die down!

          • FEHry

            Sucks when stuff happens because of medicine because it can be hard to find something with less adverse side effects but acts just as well, so I’m glad you managed that dude

            This is my last year of school so I can relate to the stress part just glad I’m getting some chill time over the holidays

    • Shady

      Many things:
      – I found that ppl around the internet don’t like me more than the pp irl does
      -Humans r complicated and weird being ……they r not logical most of the time ….most of them doesn’t have deep connection with themselves…they would rather follow the common pattern.
      -It’s good to know how ppl feel about certain object sometimes
      – Govnah is annoying

      • Re:Seraph

        I love how you put that Govnah point on its own line

        Also, since I know your trying to learn english
        I think you mean certain. Cretin is a word that basically means idiot

        • Shady

          edit

        • Shady

          Dude if u want to criticize me no need eulogize me first ….just say ur point directly

          • Re:Seraph

            I’m not criticizing you? I was legitimately trying to give you a heads up

          • Shady

        Is that a typo or a joke?

          A joke

  • The Butter Grinch

    I can see that Kurusu is here, but is just uovoting, not really posting anything

    • Natale

      What was that about deleting like 20 comments of his tho

      • The Butter Grinch

        What? I didn’t see that

        • Yeah I deleted every comment of mine in this article

          I think I over reacted a bit, but the combination of here and what happens irl at my home I couldn’t take it anymore

          • The Butter Grinch

            Oh buddy, that has to be rough

          • Yeah I probably would’ve brushed it off if it weren’t for my family fighting and due to my low self confidence I felt as if I was just a problem and nuisance to all, both here and there.

      • I was trying to leave because I basically took it from Ultron that my comments all are just burdens and constipationposts that no one really cares about

        Ultron even if that isn’t what you said that’s how it made me feel, but I’m just going to let it go

        • thats not the problem?

          all that was said was that there are too many fakemon and not enough actual discussion

        • Ultron

          Yeah I’m just sayin there are too many fanmons, nothing aimed at you personally, lil snorunt

    • I’ve now decided I’m going to just forgive and forget that incident and just keep going, but I’m going to post less because if I’m correct I am considered a constipationposter by some people.

  • Disney: Yo we might make a princess gay
    Me: lol no you wont
    Disney: Hee hee we will
    Me: Fukin do it. You won’t
    Disney: ;3

    • The Butter Grinch

      I hope they make Elsa gay

      • Nah

        They said they’re making a new princess that’s supposedly goona be gay but I really don’t think they will

        • The Butter Grinch

          If they will there are chances it’d be another BatB

      • Natale

        Because fans want to?

        Nah

      • Ultron

        Asexual Elsa plz

        • im down for this actually

          • Ultron

            Even if it was something like, “I’m just not really interested in love” that would be cool, pun intended. But for now I’ll just stick with Todd from Bojack and Varys from GoT for my popculture Aces lol.

    • Shady

      Yeah I know my English is simple ….but wat the point of calling ur self gay?

      • cuz i am

      • Natale

        Not everyone uses the word gay as an insult

        • Shady

          I am not implying it’s an insult ……but it’s related to males right?

          • It can be men and women.

          • FEHry

            Nah dude, it can be boys or girls

          • Shady

            How’s that? ….wat I know girl x girl called lesbian ……and guy x guy called gay?……..if some girl call herself gay wat that suppose to mean??

          • Ok ok so like

            originally gay was reserved for homosexual men and lesbian was used for women but over time it just became a thing to call homosexual women gay too.

          • The Butter Grinch

            I wonder if we’ll start calling Gay men Lesbians sometime soon

          • We won’t.

          • Natale

            No

          • FEHry

            Lesbian comes from Lesbos, a place famous for its gay women. Gay just comes from a word meaning happy so that’s why it’s gender neutral.

          • Shady

            That’s more confusing …actually they need to make gay word is exlusive for men

          • The Butter Grinch

            Why tho?

          • Shady

            If I find a girl call herself a gay I will bet she could be a trans or shemale ….this’s one of the reason

          • I mean.. no? She’s still gay because she is attracted to women.

            Also shemale isn’t really what you should call transwomen

          • Natale

            No. Is not that hard. At all

          • FEHry

            Gay is for boys and girls, lesbian is just for girls. Gay is used more often for boys but just means you like people the same gender as you

          • The Butter Grinch

            Gay is for both men and women
            Lesbian is just for women

          • Natale

            Gay means people that are attracted to the same sex, independent of the sex of that same person

          • Natale

            Nah

    • Natale

      Nah they will, they’re going liberal iately tbh

      • If they actually do then I will be very impressed

        They will probably queer bait the hell out of it and make it all “look shes gay wow so crazy” instead of like.. just making a gay princess??

        Cuz god knows i want a gay disney princess

        • Natale

          Yeah, hopefully they won’t make she being gay her whole character tbh

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Which is weird since Walt Disney was a raging anti-semite and hated a lot of things. Good things are happening I guess then

  • Shady

    When the hell Litten should evolve??…..dam it

    • FEHry

      We’ve got Torracat merch for the anime so it should be early next year dude

      • The Butter Grinch

        And I think it’ll probably evolve once more some time after that

      • Shady

        I am kind worried SM don’t have much to show

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Such a good game, but the next installment really has to improve on the flaws BotW had such as weapon durability and bring back core dungeons. Shrines are nice for the first two playthroughs, but they get repetitive and boring eventually.

  • ohhh.. now im sad…

    Barry is leaving game grumps

    https://twitter.com/razzadoop/status/943992071949451264

    i hope he does amazing stuff!

    • The Butter Grinch

      WIll someone replace him?

      • oh he hasn’t actually edited the videos in a long time. Kevin helped him out with it for a couple years and then afterwards Matt and Ryan from SuperMega took over for the both of them

      • FEHry

        Jon ?

        • Natale

          I wish ??

          • I don’t ????

          • FEHry

            I do ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

          • The Butter Grinch

            Okay, I love this animation

    • Natale

      Welp, hopes he has luck with his vision :0

  • Shady

    Y the animators mess up with Inci face that’s freaking lazy ….sometimes I hope we back to 90’s

    the scene still awesome though …I like Cross taste http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1513983606309.jpg

    • The Butter Grinch

      *scene

    • what’s wrong with his face?

      other than everything

      • Shady

        The scale of the head r wrong it’s shouldn’t be that big …..the facial expression does as well ………u can see the difference here . http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1514013233527.jpg

        • Re:Seraph

          Same for the rest of it body but that never seemed to bother anyone

          • FEHry

            That’s a lie you Inci haters moan about it constantly :p

          • Re:Seraph

            ;3

          • Shady

            It’s bother me that’s more than enough

    • FEHry

      That’s exactly what its face looks like, it’s just pulling an expression.

      • The Butter Grinch

        It’s mouth is opened too wide

        • FEHry

          Not really? It eats things in two bites on Refresh

      • Shady

        No the scale of the head is bigger than wat it should like ….I am sure about it

        my job is about proportions.

    • Natale

      He would have a good taste if he didn’t have an Inci ?

      • FEHry

        Yeah, because with Inci he has great taste. Unlike those people who like that fingered bird thing

        • Natale

          That “fingered thing bird” is called ??? and you can’t understand it ?

          • FEHry

            All I see is three boxes and to he honest they look better designed than that thing

      • Shady
    • Is Cross eating a Taco?

  • The best thing Barry has ever made

  • breath of the wild is one of the best games ever made

    • The Butter Grinch

      I really can’t wait to play it

  • ShinyXatu

    Ssshhh…do you hear that? I think it’s…JANUARY 2018 PREDICTION TIME!
    -Pikmin 4 (May 2018)
    -Super Smash Bros. Championship Edition (Autumn 2018), launches alongside white Pro Controller and Joy-Cons
    -Animal Crossing: Joy Farm (Summer 2018)
    -Random new IP involving a space badger or something (2018)
    -Fire Emblem Switch full reveal, Kirby, Yoshi, etc.
    -TOSS-UP: Tease for Pokemon Switch (ten seconds max, no title)
    -Third party sizzle reel, including those EA games
    -Super Mario Odyssey DLC?
    -Some random wishes, even though the aforementioned things are likely too much already: Luigi’s Mansion 3, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3, Pilotwings + Wave Race with Joy-Con controls

    And last but not least,

    • The Butter Grinch

      ”championship edition”?…

      • ShinyXatu

        I just don’t think they’ll call it “for Switch”, since it’ll likely combine elements of the Wii U and 3DS versions and add new stuff.

    • They could show the metroid prime 4 logo again and I’d still lose my sh*t

    • Natale

      Yeah seriously reveal FE Switch already, I’ve waited eternally for it :I

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • Shady

      The right one should be ghost or dark rather than ice

      • The Butter Grinch

        That’s right, not left

        • Shady

          I know I was editing this

    • This looks really cool tbh

    • Ultron

      This concept is really good. Actually making sense of a trade evolution

      • Shelmet and Karrablast make some sense

        There is a real animal that steals and uses snail shells so yeah

        • Ultron

          True, those do kinda make sense. Most don’t though :I

          Like why can’t my dusclops just put on a reaper cloth, why does it need to be traded to do so?

          • True, but ones like Steelix and Scisor maybe they need electric stimulation to merge them

            Also the entire first Gen. trade evolutions I think were to force people to make friends to get the strongest Pokémon

          • Ultron

            Pretty much, just wish it would stop now that trading is so accessible

    • ShinyXatu

      Of course this is a perfect idea, but we all know Pokemon will never return to past-gen evolutions like they should. Megas ruined it.

      • The Butter Grinch

        But megas are dead now

        • Natale

          Watch next gen have new megas.

          Far more likely than having new cross evos

        • ShinyXatu

          It doesn’t matter, they’ll never make an Absol, Lucario, etc. evolution because of it.

          • FEHry

            Let’s be honest those two were never getting evos anyway lol

          • The Butter Grinch

            Maybe a prevo for absol

          • I think Lucario already had no chance to evolve already

    • tag yourself im the heartbroken pokemon hell yeah

      • Re:Seraph

        I’m the Luvdisc

        • Natale

          A soon to be Halibrek :p

    • The Butter Grinch

      I love this series

    • Natale

      But seriously, that’s a very clever way of using Luvdisc’s love motif as a way of evolution, GF should do something similar :0

  • I still wish Mega Absol was Dark/Flying

    that “oh the wings are just static making the fur stand up” is bullshit

    • FEHry

      The wings are just meant to be aesthetic to give it that ‘angel of death/guardian angel’ imagery tho

      • Natale

        But why can’t it be one

      • Re:Seraph

        Would have wanted dark fairy cause unique type

        • even better

        • Natale

          or even better

          dark/fairy/flying so no future complains will come

      • dont care
        I WANT STAB AERIAL ACE

        • FEHry

          Aerial Ace is trash on it tho when it gets Psycho Cut and Aerial Ace

  • The Butter Grinch

    Am I the only one that wants to see split prevos someday?

  • I think Dark/Fairy may be my favorite type combo that doesn’t exist

    • The Butter Grinch

      Granbull should have it

      • eww no

      • FEHry

        Nah I think Granbull looks pure, Normal, or Fighting more than Dark

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Granbull should be fairy/fighting but it is what it is

      • Natale

        Pls give it to an actual good Pkm

    • Re:Seraph

      Ghost/bug but shednja

    • Natale

      Normal/Ghost mine

      So….

      Perfect ;-;

    • Ultron

      Still waiting for dark/electric

      • UnburdenedLegume

        And we have Luxray ffs

        • The Butter Grinch

          It has No reason to be Dark except the design

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Flygon got dragon because it was cool, let me have my dark type Luxray lol

          • Ultron

            Flygon also got dragon because GF doesn’t know what a dragonfly is and that antlions are not in the same family as dragonflies

        • Ultron

          Don’t let earthen hear you say that. But, yeah, I’d love that

    • Shady

      That’s cuz the tremendous dark type hate to be fairy

  • ShinyXatu

    I never got around to playing the Bravely Default games on 3DS but it looks like we’re likely going to get one on the Switch!

    https://twitter.com/BDFF_OFFICIAL/status/944584489153335298

    • Natale

      Bravely 3rd confirmed? ?

    • FEHry

      I can die happy

    • The Butter Grinch

      What is this series about?

      • Daedardus

        It’s about replaying the same game for a second time and calling it ‘story’.

        • The Butter Grinch

          DAE!

        • FEHry

          You’re fucking full of shít

          You replay the story at least five times :p

  • FEHry
    • Ultron

      Idk who would win, but I would probably lose everything

    • Natale

      Me

      • Natale

        But no seriously, win in what? What is this?

    • Re:Seraph

      Fairy would win, as would I. The others are kinda dependent

      • The Butter Grinch

        You seem overconfident

        • Re:Seraph

          To be fair you aren’t much of a competition

    • FEHry

      You’re all wrong. I’m Fairy confident I’ll beat everyone’s ass and if I go up against earthen I’d wait for him to get tired trying to catch me before going for a groin kick

      Oh? You all thought this was for Pokémon?

      • Natale

        And after that he smash you with a rock :3

        • FEHry

          Can’t hit what already beat your ass

          • Natale

            And after that you wake up realizing all of that was a highly unlikely dream ;3

          • FEHry

            But a highly entertaining one ?

    • The Butter Grinch

      What kind of fight?

      • FEHry

        To the death

        • The Butter Grinch

          I’d just hide and wait for Seraph to give up

    • Match begins
      *Small Rock falls from Colloseum roof and kills Kurusu

      • FEHry

        Wow earthen learned Rock throw?

    • Natale

      Earthen or fairy or Ultron because they’re the only ones willing to hurt anyone here, you all are a bunch of softies

      • FEHry

        ? ? ? you know it

      • Ultron

        Well if it was a fight to the death, I would definitely be fighting dirty as hell…

        • FEHry

          Because I respect you I’d make your death as painless as possible dude ☺

          • Natale

            That’s pretty cool because being beaten by you in the first place is already painful enough 😛

          • Ultron

            Aw that’s very sweet of you

          • FEHry

            I’d expect the same from you dude

          • Ultron

            Of course, I don’t think there’s anyone here that I would give a painful death :3

    • I can guess the results
      Ultron
      Literally a Metalic death machine

      Seraph
      He’s a Ghost and is resilient

      Fairy
      Is this one ever a comparison

      Earthen
      Sorry he’s a Earthened Warlord

      • Natale

        No they’re all humans and this is what they want you to believe

        Wake up sheeple

        • FEHry

          I’ll have you know I am a fairy in real life ?

          It’s just that it’s not the magical kind

        • Deerlia

          I will sing you the song and do the dance of my people…

    • Armaggedon16

      I’d kick everyone’s ass in the end anyway so does it matter ?

    • Fight me bitch

      • FEHry

        *breathes in your direction*

        • ok stop this isn’t fun anymore

          • Natale

            It’s always funny tho 🙁

    • MenacingCascoon

      I feel offended to not be included in a tournament

  • The Butter Grinch

    So
    What are you getting for Christmas?

    • FEHry

      Vodka and a laptop, hells yeah
      And £100 from my dad after he comes back from offshore

      • The Butter Grinch

        That sounds like one hell of a Slavic christmas

        • FEHry

          Nah dude it’s Scottish Christmas, it’s like slavic christmas but a day later and with Turkey instead of carp

          • The Butter Grinch

            Does that mean you keep you buy an alive Turkey and keep it in your bath tub until it’s time to cook it? (Many people here do that with XMas carps)

          • FEHry

            That seems fishy

    • Daedardus

      Money, money, money… 😀

      • FEHry

        Dae is actually an escort and his Christmas rate is borderline extortionate

        • Daedardus

          Well, even my non-Christmas rate is ;).

          • FEHry

            ‘I cost a lot every Dae!’

    • Natale

      Anything other than money if lucky 😀

    • TheNintendoChip

      I think some socks. Maybe money? I should have asked for some Sharpies but I totally forgot

      • The Butter Grinch

        Are they at least cool socks?

        • TheNintendoChip

          No lol just normal socks; mine have holes in them 🙁

      • Daedardus

        Socks with money printed on them!

    • Persona 5

      Uhhh

      Some amiibos

      Adobe Flash hopefully

      Uhhh

      • The Butter Grinch

        What amiibos?

        • Urbosa and Mipha and… maybe some others I forgot

    • Ultron

      Granted I bought 99% of these for myself and just put them under the tree.
      -Mario Odyssey
      -Skyrim Switch
      -Ultra Moon
      -7 Animal Crossing Amiibo (They were on sale so why not)
      -Like 8 funko (3 Fallout ones, 2 Lord of the rings, 1 Lara Croft *rock candy*, 1 Ellen Ripley *rock candy*, 1 Iceman)
      -Avatar the Last Airbender: The Promise
      -Captain Phasma Comic
      -Nice ugly Christmas sweater
      -5 Pokemon mega construx sets

      So basically I’m a 22-year-old man child, which is fine with me

    • No clue, but asked for quite a few movies, some new Lego sets and Pokémon stuff.
      Like the Buzzwole GX box so I could get Xuriktree GX (My favorite UB)

      And I still am firmly believing my brother got me Kirby Squeak Squad as on Black Friday i showed him it in Gamestop and a few mins later he went to gamestop and I was told it was for me

    • The Butter Grinch

      I’m getting
      A Neon RB Switch Splatoon bundle
      Mario Odyssey
      And a Pro Controller

  • The Butter Grinch
  • FEHry

    Do es anyone else feel really weird not nicknaning their Pokemon? Just seems weird like you wouldn’t call your dog ‘Dog’

  • Prashanth Raghuram

    Hey Folks! What d’ya think of this:

    TLDW:
    Masuda was in Spain for Gathering Information
    Oricorio and Tapu Bulu are inspired from Spanish Culture (Flamenco and BullFighting)
    Kalos had unanswered questions
    Annnnd….
    MOST IMPORTANTLY
    what’s in the thumbnail. the teaser for the next movie shows Ash wearing the Spanish Flag on his collar!

    • UnburdenedLegume

      I hope its not true

    • TheNintendoChip

      Patternicity.

    • Natale

      Not so sure about that tbh, like they didn’t have that many clues leading up to Alola did they?

      • FEHry

        Strange souvenir was it really but everything can change

        Oh and the Hawaii pattern Vivillon in the SuMo reveal trailer

        • Natale

          Ye but I don’t know why would they hint the region like that. And that Vivillon appeared when the games had already been given a name and released a trailer

          • FEHry

            But the region wasn’t revealed with the game title

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      the oricorio/ tapu connection is interesting though I don’t see the North American connection with the cheerleader/ rooster, I don’t see a kimono on Fini, and I don’t see a hulu skirt on lele. However, the bulu and flamenco style bird is really cool.

  • What does this guy mean Ash has 5 Pokémon?
    http://comicbook.com/gaming/amp/2017/12/22/pokemon-ash-poipole-ultra-beast/

    Pikachu, Rowlet, Lycanroc and Litten
    And Rotom is technically not his because it isn’t owned in a Pokeball or was never captured.

    • FEHry

      Probably just a mistake

  • The Butter Grinch

    How many of you have seen Netflix’s A Series of Unfortunate Events? It’s incredible

    • It’s good

    • Ultron

      It’s good, but I found the reptile house so boring

  • Sunniera 2.0

    Just watched the new Star Wars Movie! I just have one question… what was up with the dice? I know that it was on the Milennium Falcon and that it held sentimental value with Luke, Leia, and Ben Solo; but I don’t really know the history about it. Were there scenes in prior movies and what is the significance of them disappearing at the end?

    • Chaos

      I haven’t seen original trilogy in a while so I can’t remember the sentimental value. I imagine the dice were part of the force projection, so they disappear when Luke does, although it doesn’t explain why they disappear so late, maybe to also signify Luke’s death, and the end of the original trio…

      • Daedardus

        I imagine Luke becoming a force ghost lets him hold on to the force projection of the dice for a time. After nobody is caring for them anymore, he just lets them go.

        • Chaos

          The main problem I have with the dice being a force projection is why was Kylo able to physically interact with it, when minutes before he passed right through the force projection of Luke

          • Daedardus

            That’s because it’s totally possible for force projection to be solid or not. Same as force ghost to be honest, Luke let him just pass through him to show he wasn’t real, but he could have faked his death *cough cough* Snoke *cough*.

    • Natale

      I think that that dice thing is the thing that Luke trained with in a new hope

      https://dorksideoftheforce.com/wp-content/blogs.dir/319/files/2017/05/luke-skywalker-and-his-lightsaber.jpeg

      • Ultron

        Lol no it’s not. That’s just a ball. They were dice that hung in the cockpit

  • EarthenWarrior

    I’m back baby!

  • FEHry

    https://randompokemon.com

    1) Make it choose only one Pokémon
    2) Enter the most dex for the region you’d want to live in (using the third version/sequel dexes where applicable)
    3) Disallow Ubers, keep NFEs, reroll if it’s a legendary or UB

    How happy are you with your starter? Where do you start from?

    • FEHry

      Bonus: allow natures and use them to make your Pokémon’s personality

    • Oshawott
      Lol

    • FEHry

      Misdreavus
      Could’ve been better but I’m not feeling negative
      Would start from the Seafolk Village, one night I go to the Poni Meadow to collect berries and a Misdreavus tries to scare me. I however get attacked by Cutiefly for trying to take its berries due to a mistake. Misdreavus helps and we bond and shieeeett

    • My starter would be a Misdreavus who would carefully concoct its spells in peace to not screw up

      I got Careful Mismagius, but assumed round it to its first form

    • EarthenWarrior

      i got a Crustle which transitions to Dwebble and i’d totally use a Dwebble

      • FEHry

        It’s adorable

        How would you meet it dude?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Probably me asplorin’ the rocky terrain and i am collecting rocks and i accidentally picked a Dwebble’s shell and either it would Rock Blast me repeatably and give me several concussions and drain babage or it would be scared yet it would be impressed by all the rocks and like me for having them

          • FEHry

            That rocks

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yeah we’d get along but here’s the weird thing I might keep it a Dwebble for a while

            I mean I love Crustle but it’s just one of those cases where I prefer the prevo than the Evo

            It’s moves would be
            Fury Cutter
            Rock Blast
            Dig
            Shell Smash

            And it is a total rock lover it always inspects rocks around us and judges them, I’d imagine the moment it saw my room full of boulders it knew I was someone who it could understand

          • FEHry

            I could totally imagine it getting totally depressed because its rock breaks after an intense fight, so you go out of your way to get it an ever better one

    • Sunniera 2.0

      Gentle Meganium in Alola…I have been thinking of doing a Grass Mono in Alola for US after I completed my run in UM. Hmmm…

    • Natale

      Lax Mareanie in Alola, found it while fishing in that city in Melemele but wanted a pelipper so threw it away but it follows me because I accidentally destroyed its house so now I have to let it company me so I can pay my sins

      • FEHry

        What’s wrong with Mareanie D:<

        • Nothing except its broken evolution q:

        • Natale

          Is not pelipper ?‍?

          • FEHry

            But it’s better than Pelipper ?

    • MenacingCascoon

      Heyyyyy I got Dwebble. Pretty gross. I did it again and got torchic so thats amazing

      • FEHry

        Doesn’t resetting kinda defeat the point? :p

    • I first got Sandile, then I realized I hadn’t turned on Natures, and then I got Pichu. Wasn’t too happy with either…

      • Natale

        But with a Pichu you can get a Raichu

        Aka the most awesome thing evar

        • I like Alolan Raichu, don’t get me wrong. It’s just I would’ve been more satisfied with something like Riolu or Eevee

    • TheNintendoChip

      Happiny. Hell no.
      I rerolled and got Weavile, which I’m much more happy with. Canalave City, probably.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Adamant Honchkrow, pretty snazzy.

    • Ultron

      Toxicroak if Sinnoh
      Eelektrik if Unova

      I like them both, but they’re not my favs.

  • Well off of FEHry here would be my team in a Platinum Adventure

    Misdreavus, Careful
    Given as an egg when little and uses spells to confuse opponents

    Cherubi, Gentle
    Met when it was being attacked by Starly horde. Very kind to its allies

    Wurmple that evolves to Dustox, Bold
    Met in Eterna Forest while it slept under a rock. Will usually be the first to attack even in a impossible battle .

    Wooper, Impish
    Met when it got lost on the bike path, while it was squirting bikers. Usually will hides before striking.

    Barboach, Careful
    Found in The Great Marsh. Mostly anticipates attacks and prepared for them.

    Bidoof, Adamant
    Met in Celestic Town when t got stuck by the fog. Usually won’t take any way except its own.

    Still sad no Minun and Plusle in Smash :/

    • Monkeyfuzz

      They would have to work together like Ice Climbers (who I missed in 4).

      • Yeah they were apparently going to appear in 4, but because the DS couldn’t handle them in it and they wanted the games to be equal, then they were scrapped due to that

  • Again. Hollowknight is so damn good

    I’m stuck on this bossfighf and it’s really highlighting how good the combat is

    I’m jumping, dashing, getting hits in whenever I can, waiting for the ideal time to be able to stop and heal without getting hit… ITS NUTS

    Every hit hurts. You feel the impact when you take damage. And because you only have 5 hearts it really does mean a lot if you lose one.

    And even though I’ve lost to this boss like 6 times now and there’s quite a bit of space between the save point and the boss fight, I’m still going because the deaths feel fair.

    I’m loving this game so much

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Harry Potter marathon later. Bought my big bag of nachos w dip and other snacks & a good bottle of wine and im gonna abuse the lazy chair until late midnight! :3

    • FEHry

      Very festive :p ?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Well most of the movies do feature christmas a bit.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Is it Harry Potter Weekend on Freeform again already? Feels like it’s been a whole week since the last time they marathoned the series hahaha

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I dont have a tv plan yet as i just moved here so im watching the films online

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Ah. Just for the record what I said was a joke if you know what the channel Freeform is. They basically play HP movies every single weekend, but act like it’s a special event as if they don’t anyway lol

      • TheReece25

        Lol.. ikr… I always watch it tho.. I saw all of them Thanksgiving… For the 100th time.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Same hahaha they always play the series, but I can’t stop watching

  • Well after a long hard fought match to stop Team Skull from err… stealing a bus stop this happened https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7c5d4bf002ae31548b886fe1e5d6c26d678fa1afc64dc2f190f0fd4bfa4c1386.jpg

    Meet Minty the Dewgong

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Ive never used Dewgong before. Plan to in the future for a mono Ice run

      • If you use the right moves its a very good battler

        My set is Aqua Jet, Smart Strike, Brine and Aurora Beam

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    For those that celebrate Happy Festivus!!!

  • MenacingCascoon

    Here’s a fun Pokemon Would you rather on Amino
    http://aminoapps.com/p/9mj616
    Try answering with actual answers. And each other. Don’t forget to provide a reason!

    • MenacingCascoon

      1. OOF. This is pretty hard. Being a Trainer is what we’ve always been I get to get badges and prove to be the best and use Pokemon in battle. I would love to be coordinator based on the anime. It’s always so cool and I really love it. It’s more complicated but feels more rewarding. Trail goer is a easy no. They just don’t seem as interesting honestly. Buuuuuut I think I have to choose trainer. It’s much more simpler, and it’s not as restricted to certain regions.
      2. ‎Sinnoh is fun with the gyms and stuff, but the cold weather doesn’t look too fun. I gotta go with Alola. Alola nice weather better Pokemon, and I love the way the region is. It just in general seems more positive.
      3. ‎Gym Leader easily. As a trial captain I feel like you don’t do that much. Gym leaders are respected, strong, train their own Pokemon. They also have their own jobs. Gym leaders honestly are more iconic. And seemingly more high class.
      4. ‎Yea I’m not about to catch these hands today. Mr. Mime is about to be my best friend. I rather not die
      5. ‎Well Arceus would probably kill me afterwards sooooo kissing it is. It can’t be THAT bad
      6. ‎As you can tell, I’m not going to get murdered by a pokemon Soooo sorry charmander. You were overhyped anyeay
      7. ‎I can eat magikarp! So it’s the obvious choice
      8. ‎Nightmares are pretty bad and can affect you more than you think. So I have to say Hypno. Hypno is very scary but I don’t have nightmares and never will. They suck.

    • LunaMoon

      Oh THAT’S what Amino is….I was really confused for a while about what the heck it was.

  • ShinyXatu

    For some reason I just discovered that I can use Amazon Prime Now since I live in the SF Bay Area. Last night I checked it and they had the SNES Classic available and I ALMOST went for it just to keep it sealed, but I decided against it. I should have done it because that was likely my last chance. However, I could order Pokken Tournament DX and DOOM and have them here in 2 hours…a worthy proposition…

    • Daedardus

      Don’t keep it sealed lol, they are continuing to make this until they have to throw them on a landfill. 😛

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So I think after the holiday I’m going to play through the Kingdom hearts collection on the PS4. I won’t go in expecting to be it within a certain time period, but I’d like to play through at least the 2 main games before 3 comes out. To refresh myself a bit.

    • Oh, you’re gonna need to play all of the games to get a full understanding of the Kingdom Hearts lore

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I mean I’ve already played though the first 2 games and played through much of birth by sleep and Dream Drop distance. I know all about the lore of KH. I just want to play through to refresh myself on the series as it’s been a while and I think it’ll be fun.

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Not necessarily as DDD has the Glossary section which contains all of the core information about every main title

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          That’s tedious tho lol It’ll be more fun for me to remember tings as I play through again

          • UnburdenedLegume

            358/2 days is not really worth playing tho. you should just watch the cutscenes in 1.5

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I’ve never played 358/2. Never had much interest in it anyway. Like you said I’ll prolly just watch the cut scenes

  • EarthenWarrior

    Who wants to see how I decorated my brother’s Christmas present?
    I drew “Bitchin’ Santa”

  • LunaMoon

    Well I’m back and a lot calmer now. Sorry if I left with a really dramatic message, I’m much calmer now.

  • MenacingCascoon

    Small thing I want to fix next Pokemon game. In double battles when an opponent uses protect or avoids a spread move attack, there shouldnt be an animation for it getting hit still. It just looks bad.

  • Re:Seraph

    1134 srs in and I’m still goin

  • ShinyXatu

    I hate Nintendo with a burning passion for allowing 200cc to happen in MK8 Deluxe. I thought games were supposed to be fun, not arbitrary “what the hell just happened” simulators. I already feel as though my heart will explode and I’ve only beaten two cups with 3 stars so far (with hours of effort put in).

    Also, I found a shiny Yanmega last night in the wormhole which is kind of exciting! Nothing else to say about that!

    • LunaMoon

      Congrats on the Yanmega!

    • EarthenWarrior

      I have 3 stars on EVERY cup
      I want a 300 CCCUP

      • ShinyXatu

        That is impressive…but have you completed all 48 time trials by beating the Nintendo staff ghosts to earn the golden tires?

  • LunaMoon

    Do you think I should continue my shiny hunt for pheramosa or give up? I’m getting bored of doing it and it feels more and more like a chore than something to be excited for.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Depends how much you want it and how tenacious you are.

      • LunaMoon

        I do want it and I’m getting a new 2DS XL (white orange version) for Christmas/December 25th which’ll be fun to use, but on the other hand I want to get more shinies from the wormholes.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Maybe you should take a break and work on the shiny charm.

          • LunaMoon

            I’m too lazy on doing that. Besides, a ton of the Pokemon I’d have to GTS and really do some complex stuff to level them and evolve them, thus I’d rather do the ever-so-slightly less harder and more simpler SR.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Do you also watch TV or other things whilst doing it? I find it can make it less tedious.

          • LunaMoon

            I do but either way the SR really makes me distracted and plus I worry of missing the shiny.

          • Re:Seraph

            It’s 3 times easier with the charm

  • LunaMoon

    As we’re not getting any more DLC or anything finishing BOTW’s story, unfortunately, I decided to share my concept of what happens after the finale.

    A few days after the annihilation of Calamity Ganon, Princess Zelda and Link set off across Hyrule to inform the defeat of the vicious tyrant who had brought the serene and vast kingdom to its knees. They first arrive at Zora’s Domain and inform King Donephan about Mipha. Shortly after this and a proper mourning ceremony for her with the newly received information, Donephan explains that Ruta had been malfunctioning due to it being not properly charged or refilled. After a quick trip and quick dungeon, Link returns and Ruta back to normal. They soon begin to head to Kakariko Village before to any other of the Divine Homes, to meet with Impa. However, along their way, they are soon approached by a Guardian. Aware of what could happen and now an expert in eliminating them, Link stands up and prepares. However, as it returns, the Guardian suddenly flashes in Sheikah orange, and cheerfully arrives at them. Zelda then notes that they had all been under Ganon’s curse and his death also included the cursed creatures to be released from it. This brought great news to especially in restoring Hyrule, as the Guardians were now under complete Sheikah control. Shortly after arriving at Kakariko, Zelda reunites with Impa and explains all that had happen. Impa, cheerful, would demand a celebration in the village for Link and Zelda. The Guardian would remain there and it would help out the citizens, both as it was its main function and its punishment for crimes against Hyrule. Zelda and Link travel to the three other main spots; at Goron City, they inform of Daruk, in which Yunobo happily backs up. He is then crowned “Descendant Protector of Goron City”. After, they reach Rito Village and they help restore and revive Revel’s name to the people. Finally, they reach Gerudo Town and inform Riju of Urbosa and the fall of Calamity Ganon. She rejoices and then shows her emotional side, revealing that she had never gotten over her mother’s death and wished for an official mourning ceremony of it. Afterwards, they head over to the other main village, Hateno, and ask for the -son’s help. Soon, they receive a mighty work force composed of Hyrulians, Zoras, Ritos, Gorons and Gerudo, along with many reformed Guardians of all types to restore Hyrule. As the castle is restored and Hyrule Castle Town is also restored to its former glory, Zelda and Link along with the Sheikah Trio, Purdah, Impa, and Robbie, head to the Yiga Clan and finally take down the rebellious group. Without Ganon’s influence nor a leader, the Yiga surrender immediately and are taken to the prisons. Years later, Hyrule is once again blooming and Zelda finally feels confident in herself, realizing she at last now is worthy of Hylia’s blessing and the power.

    • Rockcrawdaunt

      I thought there was a new interview with the zelda creator and he said he wants to do more dlc!?

  • Ooh, new DBS is up on Crunchyroll

  • Ultron

    1) ARCEUS I hate Revali. He’s the worst Zelda character ever.

    2) I’ve just realized that with Pokemon Switch becoming a thing…that probably means they’ll be making pokemon amiibo. Probably just the starter final evos/legendaries/maybe some characters, but it’s kind of exciting to think about. And frightening due to the possible expense.

    3) Slightly disappointed in the Champion’s ballad DLC. It’s nice to have a reason to be back in Hyrule and everything, but I kind of wanted an actual narrative. Right now it’s just find the shrines and then rebattle the bosses. I would’ve at least liked new mini bosses instead of the ganon blight things. All well..they didn’t really have to make anything at all

    • lol Jesus I know Revali is a dick but he’s not that bad lol

      • Ultron

        He has no redeeming qualities

        • He’s cool when he shoots arriows though

          • Ultron

            Yet he still managed to die against the easiest blight. Lolllzzzzz he seriously sucks

          • LunaMoon

            i think they purposely made the Blights difficulties per character. Ex. Reveal is self-absorbent and believes he’s the strongest thus they made his opponent really weak and show how he’s not as strong as he thinks. Urbosa is undoubtedly a strong, powerful Gerudo vai, therefore giving her the hardest blight makes sense.

        • ShinyXatu

          He shot those arrows pretty skillfully. That’s something.

  • Don’t you love it when get a cold the day before Christmas and had to sleep for 2 hours to get rid of your ear splitting headache?

  • The next DBS looks so good, I’m so hyped

  • Shady

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Man the second Pokemon movie is so freaking great. Lugia really got the better deal when it came to movies. It’s so jarring hearing the characters talk about stuff that they would never ever be able to now…..kind of sad actually……Like when Team Rocket rhyme about how they’re gonna die when they jump off of Lugia. Or when They’re all talking about being with the opposite sex hahaha Some of the funniest parts and it would never happen now a days……Speaking of jarring I had now idea that the Weird Al Yankovic Pokemon song was sandwiched between the Power of one song and the last very chill sounding song during the credits. It’s been a while since I’ve watched the entire end credits and it caught me off guard hahahaha

  • Well it happened if finally happened (DS died so I’ll show picture later) I finally got Incineroar

    Furball the Incinroar
    Lvl.34
    Blaze
    Female
    Naughty Natured, Good Endurance
    Item: Firium Z
    Moves:
    Darkest Lariat
    Leech Life
    Fire Fang
    Double Kick

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Can you Tutor Fire Punch yet?

      • Is it on Ula’Ula? If not, then no

        • Josh Omega

          It’s in heahea city so you can get it! Can confirm since I taught it to my incineroar!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It’s on the Heahea beach one. Just need t o fly to it.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Yooooo DBS is becoming more and more intense! Hopefully the rumors are true & Vegeta gets the offensive portion of Ultra Instinct

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Vegeta should get his own thing and then they have to train each other.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Although i wouldnt put past them to eliminate Vegeta as Akira hates him with a passion

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Why?

  • EarthenWarrior

    Well ‘‘tis Christmas Eve eve and I’ve done very little productive things

    Watched an hours worth of SJW fails, maybe 2018 will be the year they start dying out

    Night everyone

  • TheUltraMonster6893
  • Merry Christmas Pokejungle!

  • Josh Omega

    Well I bought the botw dlc tonight. So much rage at the first part of there champiosn ballad lol finally finished that part though. Will do the next part a little later today!

    • Natale

      Misty – “Did you get more wood?”

      Ash – “ohhhhh yeahhhh! ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)”

      Ok then…

  • FEHry

    https://youtu.be/4javKwfN-DI

    I really hope that Gen 8 takes some inspiration from PBR aesthetically, such as Pokémon scale, the health bar being depleted with aesthetics related to the move used, and different body types for trainers

    Also get rid of the black lines but make it look good unlike the mods for Gen 7

    • Natale

      Oh God I really do want Pkm scale to be on the game for Switch, it gives so much deep and realism to the battles, and I also like how when using a physical move the Mon actually walks forward to the other mon and hits it (as shown in 1:10 by Regi)

      • Armaggedon16

        I guess the reason the physical moves aren’t like that in the main games is because it would slow down battles a lot. Imagine a random trainer battle with these animations

        • Natale

          Eh tru, but maybe an option to speed up battles might fix that

    • FEHry

      Okay but why does Sky Attack look so good

      2:20

      https://youtu.be/LPCqVpw7cU4

      • Natale

        Time mark pls

        And you can say the same about every other attack animation, like that’s one of the best parts of the game really

        • FEHry

          Refresh, time stamp is there (2:20) :p

          • Natale

            My god it does, almost feel like a fire move

  • LunaMoon

    Merry Christmas Eve everyone! Please wish me luck as I try to get a shiny Pheramosa, which I’ve been mostly inclined to do since UltraMonster got it before me.

    • FEHry

      Why does it matter of others get it if you’re eventually gonna get it tho? 😡

      • LunaMoon

        Because it reminds me of my failures 🙁

    • Monkeyfuzz

      GL, maybe she’ll feel like strutting into your game soon.

  • Daedardus

    I ordered the Bayonetta Special Edition. What am I doing with my life, I can’t stop buying Nintendo LEs :(.

    • FEHry

      But you ordered the best one

      • Daedardus

        True. From the pics, I doesn’t look like it’s worth the extra money, but then I remembered my Xenoblade 2 special edition and the box it came it, and looked at the box they had for the Bayo special edition and I’m guessing it will be a similar situation where the box is really nice.

  • The Butter Grinch

    Watching Arthur Christmas

    • Oh I love that movie!

    • EarthenWarrior

      I rather watch the Grinch honestly

      Or that Penguins of Madagascar Christmas special (my mom and dad ALWAYS bring up Mr. Chew whenever Bea gets into a temper tantrum)

  • EarthenWarrior

    SOSing a Trapinch today at my Aunts

    • FEHry

      Good luck and godspeed

    • LunaMoon

      GL, may you not get my kinda luck. But TBF, I’m hunting a legendary without a shiny charm so it’s kinda my own fault I have so much stacked up against me.

  • Well just learned the sad truth that my Lycanroc wasn’t lucky. Dusk form has Accelerrock as one of those moves that aren’t guaranteed to have. So now mine must find a different set to use 🙁

    I guess Drill Run will do, when do you get access to that move?

    • FEHry

      What? All Lycandusk get Accelrock, they just need the reminder for it

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You’ll have to either ask someone else to re-learn it for you or wait until Lanakila but you can get it.

  • Holy crap Totem Togedemaru was something else, I barely won

    But I learned that even if you have a disadvantage you can still hit hard as if it weren’t for Dewgong I would’ve lost https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7b94868e829d438a1992ddf8752ce0c988ec1178847ba1bd6d63e666eca7d80d.jpg

    • The Butter Grinch

      Can Mega stones be traded? If yes then why not ask someone to trade you Lopunnite?

      • LunaMoon

        I don’t think you can, but you can buy the vast majority at Battle Tree with BP, and Diancite from a Konikoni shop.

        • The Butter Grinch

          Yeah, but he wanted Mega Lopunny before the E4

          • LunaMoon

            I don’t think there’s a legal and legitimate possibility for you to get it before the Elite 4, as you need to go through a room that’s accessible only after becoming the Champion.

          • FEHry

            You can trade Mega Stones but it’ll be useless without the Key Stone

          • LunaMoon

            You CAN???

          • FEHry

            Ever since they were introduced

          • LunaMoon

            I had no idea you could trade Mega Stones, I thought they weren’t able to be traded.

          • FEHry

            They’re held items. The only items that can’t be traded are Z-Crystals and Key Items. Or if you’re trading to a game where the item doesn’t exist (like trying to trade a Lopunnite to XY)

          • LunaMoon

            Oh ok. Darn, I wish I knew that before transferring all my S/M, X/Y and OR/AS to each succeeding game. Now I can’t transfer my Pokemon back and bring the Mega stones.

      • Because mega stones don’t work till post game when you get the key stone

        If it wasn’t like that I would get it

  • LunaMoon

    Welp, either everyone’s busy getting ready for christmas eve or I really isolated myself. If it’s the latter, I sincerely apologize for being really divisive these days. If it’s the former, well then, sorry for bothering you, have a great Christmas Eve!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I think everyone is busy.

      • LunaMoon

        Gud.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Merry Xmas eve!! Hope everyone has a great day!

    • LunaMoon

      Thanks! I hope you enjoy your shiny ultra-rare Ultra Beast Pheramosa!

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Oh I will enjoy her. Not gonna lie it was prolly the first shiny in a while that I actually gasped and hopped in my seat when I saw it hahaha

        • LunaMoon

          I hope i get that sort of reaction instead of just ignoring it and then realizing “Wait, she was half-black….oh great” and then throwing my 2DS out the window and crushing it with a hammer.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Gotta be careful. I actually did reach for the buttons to reset before I realized it was shiny

          • LunaMoon

            Oh wow.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Part of the reason I gasped and hopped back into my seat haha

          • LunaMoon

            Ah, that makes sense! 😛 I hope I can easily tell the difference because honestly it’d be gut-wrenching to SR on a shiny. Would be waste of my time!
