We’re just days away from 2018 which happens to be a “Year of the Dog” according to the Chinese Zodiac. In Japan, the country of origin for the Pokémon series, there are reminders everywhere as New Years draws near. There are also plenty of dog-like Pokémon now in the series, so many so that it might be hard to just pick one favorite but today we challenge you to do just that! What is your favorite dog (or dog-like) Pokémon?!

From Poochyena to Furfrou, Granbull to Manectric, what’s your favorite Pokémon that resembles a dog from our own world?

Here are some pictures to give you inspiration as you think of your answer! Tell us below!

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Houndoom

    Also: i have €70 in my Switch eshop wallet, what should buy with it?

    • Daedardus

      For non-packaged games: Minecraft, Stardew Valley, Rocket League, Overcooked, Snipperclips Plus, Shovel Knight (if you have Pro controller), wait for Terraria.

      For packaged games that you rather want digitally: Zelda (or the DLC if you have it already), Mario Odyssey, MK8D, Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

      There’s like fifteen other games out there that are must buy, but 70 will only get you so far :P.

  • PJ

    I said this on Twitter, but I’d probably have to choose Absol myself

  • Rockruff because it’s adorable and Lycanroc is really cool (mainly Midday and Dusk)

  • LunaMoon

    i don’t really like dogs but the best one here is probably Furfrou as you can customize it.

  • Ultron

    Hyenas are not dogs fyi. They’re more closely related to cats

    But lycanroc.

    • Daedardus

      “Although phylogenetically they are closer to felines and viverrids, hyenas are behaviourally and morphologically similar to canines in several elements of convergent evolution;”

      • Ultron

        Yes, they act and behave like dogs, but that doesn’t make them related to them.

  • Armaggedon16

    Arcanine is best dog

    • Daedardus

      Yeah, he’s so cute and good at Flamethrower!

  • Lycanroc and Houndoom are my favorites

  • Daedardus
  • Chaos

    Rockruff is best dog. Too bad they ruined the evolutions.

    • LunaMoon

      What do you mean?

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    Rockruff for me. It has the best evos :0

  • Bad news. Crobatair, the RR leaker and friends with PokeSirena said this on Bulbagarden Forums regarding the deleted Tieba forum leak: “I’m acquainted with one of administrators. He checked the background process and confirmed that it wasn’t a self-deletion. Also that administrator who executed operations seemed to have some connections with inner leakers. The famous Chinese leaks for sun and moon were also deleted by him at first, then later appeared on 4chan. So ‘Kanto remake’ is definitely one of the most trustworthy leaks so far. I stand on it.”

    • LunaMoon

      Uhh, there already WAS a Kanto remake. If they’re thinking of a SECOND Kanto remake happening soon, well I’ll be pleasantly popping their nostalgic bubble for them, there is no way that Kanto will get a 2ND remake whereas Gen 4 and onwards must wait their turn and give up their spot in the line for Kanto just because it’s “nostalgic” and “original”. Besides, Alola basically had Kanto revamps, with the Gym, tons of the Pokemon and a whole lotta references to there, we don’t need second remakes of a game yet.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Omg, If we get ANOTHER Kanto REMAKE, with no new pokemon, no lasting post game, and for it to be the first console on the switch. I would be soooo done with the game. I wouldn’t get it honestly. I’m sick of all this Kanto pandering. And seeing the USUM RR ending with giovanni cliffhanger, it already seems like we are getting Kanto pandering next game, but the whole game on Kanto remake. Unbelieveable…

      • Josh Omega

        I know right! I get that kanto starter the series but the pandering or it is getting way out of hand. From charizard and mewtwo getting two Megas to alolan forms only being for kanto mons it’s annoying at this point

    • The Butter Grinch

      NONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONONO
      PLEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAASE
      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

      • If UltraMonster’s idea is true will you like it?

        Basically it’s Kanto, but new story, tons of new Pokémon, new starters

        So basically Kanto in a rebooted format

        • LunaMoon

          Ah, so it’s a new generation, but they’re too lazy to come up with a new region so they lazily use the excuse of it being a “reboot” of Kanto.

        • Josh Omega

          If we are actually going back to kanto I hope this is true x.x I am seriously getting tired of all the kanto pandering. We get it. It’s the first gen that started the franchise but can you please give it a break

        • The Butter Grinch

          No, that would suck. That’s just a new region but in Kanto.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Having a Kanto remake as the first switch game is a VERY safe move from GF part and also the fact that we’ve been in that region a crapton of times already, but oh well, maybe they finally make Kanto an interesting region for once and add Johto and add the necessary stuff to maye make it worth visiting again.

      But honestly, a new region is such a much better option because it’ll have a totally and completely new experience for everybody but oh well, gotta pander to Kanto like they’ve been doing for the past 6th and 7th generation -_-

    • Josh Omega

      I seriously hope UltraMonsfers theory about this is true then if we are actually going to kanto again that is

  • ALL OF THEM https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/52f8ae7bc0daa2acbb24fbfc62a1b55958d369b764932dcdfd4a9a5efa1ba944.jpg

    THEYRE ALL SUCH GOOD BOYS

    ESPECIALLY HOUNDOOM BECAUSD HE’SMY MAIN GOOD BOY WHEN I PLAY HGSS

    JUST TRADE OVER A HOUDOUR FROM PLATINUM AND BAM. INSTANT GOOD BOY

  • MenacingCascoon

    Definitely Manetric. It’s a cute pupper, cool, and powerful Pupper. I love it’s hit hard and run fast play style. Mega Manetri may have a crazy simple, and interesting design, but I love it. And it’s shiny is Black and Yellow, who doesn’t like that

  • The Butter Grinch

    I like Jolteon, LycanDusk and Houndoom a lot, I dunno which one is my fav tho

  • Shiny Lurantis

    If you don’t use Houndoom you’re not doing drag Pokemon right

  • EarthenWarrior
    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Did the Garbodor just randomly blow up

    • LunaMoon

      Is that from the ICU movie?

  • Favorite Dog Pokemon? I’d have to say it’s a tie between Houndoom and Lycanroc Midday.

  • LunaMoon

    Ugh I’m a bit down because I watched the BOTW cutscenes again. It’s just so….depressing on what happened. Geez it’s horrifying.

    • LunaMoon

      Anyone want to comfort me :/

  • LunaMoon

    Anyone know where I can download a blank (no points like shine marks) map of BOTW Hyrule?

    • LunaMoon

      Please someone tell me I desperately need a map D:

  • ShinyXatu
    • Shiny Lurantis

      Stoutland is an amazing dog

  • Josh Omega

    Rockruff and lycanroc day. I instantly loved both when they were revealed! Kind of have a soft spot for them because they remind me of my dog who passed away in 2011. Actually nicknamed the rockruff I used in my first sun playthrough after him. Brownie.

  • LunaMoon

    Gah why can’t I find a stupid blank detailed map of BOTW Hyrule.

    • ShinyXatu

      That looks like a big bag of rice.

  • LunaMoon

    Gah why must the map not work I was planning on using it :/

  • LunaMoon

    Well that sucks the map has so much details it’s causing major lag thus I can’t use it RIP

  • I’ve been keeping in touch with PokeSirena. So far, she said this: 3 of her sources say it’s Generation 8 (the same people who got RR right), one says DP Remakes, and one says Kanto Remakes. I’m assuming that this is not counting the recently deleted Tieba forum leak.

    • The Butter Grinch

      Maybe all are right and we’re getting a game with all regions?…

    • Shiny Lurantis

      DP remakes aren’t going to be the first switch games. Well, they might be, but i doubt it. They’re not as hype-able as new games or a remake of the OG

      • The Butter Grinch

        Yeah, probably will come out 2020

  • MenacingCascoon

    I know we are talking Pokedogs, but guess what I found yesterday. Shiny Raikou! Cats are better than dogs anyway

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fef8722fb905317f225aed2f06126e372818d5205b50034242463828507d478d.jpg
    This is 4 straight days of shiny legends

    • LunaMoon

      I thought it was a Legendary Dog?

      • MenacingCascoon

        People miscorrectly call them Legendary Dogs. Raikou is definitely a cat

        • LunaMoon

          Oh ok

      • Shiny Lurantis

        Fan term

    • Shiny Lurantis
      • MenacingCascoon

        Yes. Cats are way better than Dogs.

        • Shiny Lurantis

          Cats are condescending little schizos whereas dogs actually love and respect you and enjoy bewwy wubs

          • LunaMoon

            Dogs can kill you.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            If you’re either a terrible person and upset them or they were raised by a terrible person

            Everyone you love can kill you, doesn’t make cats better than them

          • LunaMoon

            I know.

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Cats don’t love or care for anything, they just enjoy being there in one place while doing nothing productive for all day.

            That’s why they’re better

          • MenacingCascoon

            Awww. You hate cats and cats treat you with hate back. Almost sounds you know… fair? Dogs are so extra you have to do sooooo much for dogs they just need to sit down somewhere. Dogs blindly love anything. Such desperate creatures

          • Shiny Lurantis

            What? I love cats lol, and some of them are nice back. I just like dogs better

            And honey, the only desperate thing I see here is your sass. Dogs know when they’re not wanted lol

          • MenacingCascoon

            You have to earn a cats love. And my ‘sass’ is desperate? What does that even mean

          • Shiny Lurantis

            You have to earn a dog’s love as well, lol.

            It’s desperate because it’s not very good. You know, like a desperate situation? A situation that is not very good?

          • MenacingCascoon

            Pet a dog an it lves you GG.
            Boy bye, nobody here has any sass.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            A dog liking you for being nice =/= loving you girl bye

            I think you make it quite apparent nobody here has any sass :p

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Catz rulz, wish this was the cat year instead and we had to talk about our favourite cats instead of dogs :p

  • Shiny Lurantis

    I really want Gen 8 to be a reboot, Rainbow Rocket felt somewhat conclusive, as did bringing back the OG player character and rival.

    • The Butter Grinch

      Boooooooo!

      • Shiny Lurantis

        And here we see the Nintendo fan exhibiting typical behaviour

        • The Butter Grinch

          We got enough Gen 1 pandering

          • LunaMoon

            *Alolan forms flashback*

          • Shiny Lurantis

            And if they were rebooting the franchise Gen 1 pandering would help stabilise the transition

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Unova was in no way Gen 1 pandering, it was a very different Kanto. We might get something very unique cuz it’s a reboot not a remake

    • LunaMoon

      It should be a reboot of Gen 4 only.

      • Shiny Lurantis

        Ew.

      • The Butter Grinch

        That would be even worse

        • LunaMoon

          Better than garbage 1.

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Gen 4 is not that good, gen 3 and 5 are better imo

        • Shiny Lurantis

          > Implying Gen 3 was good

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            > Implying Gen 3 was bad

          • Shiny Lurantis

            > Don’t need to imply when you look at the sales

          • > sales =/= quality

          • Shiny Lurantis

            Sales can indicate quality lol

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            But…but….but… there are many so examples of that not being the case ;-;

          • Earthbound says hi

          • Shiny Lurantis

            My point exactly

          • You bitch! >:0

          • Shiny Lurantis
          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Mfw sales doesn’t equal quality kek

          • Shiny Lurantis

            > Dropping the greentext and going for kek

            I feel backstabbed Kuppo you ruined JungleChan

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Sorry not sorry shouldn’t have used greentext outside of 4chan in the first place ?

          • Shiny Lurantis

            > Not approving my greentext

            Go back to reddit

          • LunaMoon

            People might buy the games but it doesn’t mean the games are good, you can’t exactly tell whether a game is good or not without reading a review while purchasing a game.

        • … shouldn’t it need a remake more then?

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Exactly

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Rather a Reboot than a remake, I mean the soft reboot that we got was amazing so I’m hoping that a total reboot might even be better

      • Shiny Lurantis

        It could be a reboot remake tho. Rake in that kanto dough

        • LunaMoon

          They already did…..In Gen 1…..Gen 3…..Gen 7….do we need another generation of Kanto-influence?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Those were only remakes and also the same story. A full reboot would be a completely new story as well

          • LunaMoon

            OK, as long as it doesn’t replace a third version or Gen 4 remakes, I’ll be fine with it.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            The last time we’ve started in Kanto was over a decade ago, and soon it’ll have been a decade since we’ve been in Kanto at all. It and Johto also haven’t been seen in 3D. They can do plenty with a Kanto revisit.

          • Gen 6 too

            Kanto Starters with megas
            Butterfly regional bug
            Mewtwo in a cave
            Virdian Forest
            Legendary Birds
            2 mega mewtwos

            Probably more I can’t think of

          • LunaMoon

            Ah yeah I forgot about that. So, four generations with Gen 1 influences.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            > Butterfly regional bug is apparently Kanto pandering
            > Beautifly exists

            Star I love the Mr. Fantastic cosplay

          • -.-

            I’m pointing out similarities. Gen 6 has a lot when you look

          • Shiny Lurantis

            It does have similarities but two butterflies that look nothing alike isn’t pandering. Pokemon wise, Gen 5 is far more Kanto Pandering than Gen 6 was.

          • Why are you pointing out the only one that was a tiny bit of a stretch when they literally copy pasted viridan forest’s layout

          • Shiny Lurantis

            Because that’s the only thing I had a problem with? Just because someone has a tiny problem with your argument and points it out doesn’t mean that they’re immediatly against you lol

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Still be good, Kanto still has great potential

          • UnburdenedLegume

            If its a complete reboot i’m fine with it

  • Armaggedon16

    A completely redone kanto rather than a typical remake wouldn’t really be that bad. Plus it could signify a new beginning for Pokemon quite Nicely.

    • Lol so basically you just want a new region

      No one wants Kanto again I love it

      • Shiny Lurantis

        ‘I want them to use the potential of a region that we haven’t seen used to its fullest even though we’ve visited it more than once’ =/= ‘new region’ lol

        • “Completely redone Kanto”

          No one really wants the same Kanto with the same routes and towns. They want a new region.

          If the use Kanto and Johto as a base for an open world game I’m fine with it but otherwise FRLG are the best ways to experience Kanto already. We don’t need it again

          • Shiny Lurantis

            ‘Completely redone’ isn’t the same as ‘completely new’. Completely redone in this context means taking what’s already there and readjusting it, not starting over from scratch. What a new region is.

          • Ok but honey, do you really want 3D FRLG instead of just something new?

          • Shiny Lurantis

            How is ‘completely redone’ just a 3D FRLG? That’s remade, not redone. A remake is redone but not everything that’s redone is a remake lol. There’s so much they can do with Kanto lol

          • Ok but what is there to redo? Kanto is fine!

          • Shiny Lurantis

            > Using the region’s open design to make a far more open Pokemon game
            > Use new mechanics and features that didn’t exist the last time we were in Kanto and incorporate them well
            > Build the region up physically and lore wise thanks to having so much more power to work with
            > Telling a new narrative utilising old, fan favourite characters who can be fleshed out. Or no narrative and just expand on these characters because they’re all bland but deserve better

          • Ok so a remake

          • Shiny Lurantis

            Far more drastic than anything a Pokemon remake has ever done before but if you want to play contrarian sure hun call it a pancake for all i care

          • LunaMoon

            Don’t think GF should waste all that expensive time and resources and the ability to refresh Pokemon on an existing Gen for a remake, they should focus on using the new tactics on a new Gen before Gen 1.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            It’d take less time for them to use a pre-existing region and all the new rad stuff

          • LunaMoon

            But it’d be less exciting to use something already existing instead of making something new.

      • Armaggedon16

        Yes
        Basically.
        Call it kanto so the old fans are happy and have returning kanto characters Because nostalgia.
        But like be different Enough.

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        I do because a remake can vastly improve that region

        • Kanto is fine enough on its own honestly. They kinda nailed it the first time.

          I just don’t want another that badly.

    • LunaMoon

      I don’t think it’s a good idea to restart Pokemon. Have you ever seen Mario or Zelda restart?

      • Shiny Lurantis

        Mario and Zelda constantly change up their mechanics and thus don’t need to restart lol

        Pokemon already did a soft restart with Gen V

      • Armaggedon16

        Bruh zelda went from story focused linear skyward sword to small scale handheld to completely open world game.
        Zelda has games ranging from majoras mask to four swords so it isn’t comparable

      • Multiple times

    • Chaos

      I personally would welcome a sort of alternate reality Kanto (Which I though USUM would be with respect to SuMo).

      Have the same characters in different roles, have a different starting position and route through the region e.t.c

    • I just want Generation 8 Pokemon in the Switch game. That’s all I want. I can’t wait until Crobatair posts information on the deleted Kanto Remake leak from Tieba forums. Then we can leave it up to our own thoughts on whether the leak is true or false.

  • Between Lycanroc (Dusk/Midday), Mightyena and Houndoom.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Something is very wrong with me today
    I actually slept and woke up refreshed, I had a winning streak in LC and in Rocket League and work is going 100% smoothly

    IM CURSED

    • Chaos

      The universe is toying with you man…keep an eye out. Lulling you into a false sense of security. Be careful

      • EarthenWarrior

        Things are going too well… I died in my sleep didn’t I….

        Or am I under anesthesia while someone is harvesting my organs

    • Sounds like a good day! :3

      • EarthenWarrior

        That’s the problem I am used to everyday being miserable and constantly in pain

        • Well, maybe it’s a sign that things may start turning around

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Don’t worry tomorrow will probably be as good as always :3

  • Me playing HGSS: YOU CAN GO TO KANTO???

    Me today: Oh are we really doing Kanto again?

    • Chaos

      The best thing about returing to Kanto in those games is the changes to the region 3 years after the originals. We haven’t had that opportunity with any other region…

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      GF is refusing to let that region go, I mean I don’t blame them it has BY FAR the best designed Pkms and best cities and towns in Pkm

      • It’s so solid. People here kinda forget how much they really nailed it the first try. It doesn’t tell you exactly where to go but gives you enough hints in the dialogue and level design to tell you where to go especially later in the game

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Yeah these games were actually pretty good, and really innovative as well. It’s just a shame it didn’t aged well tho

  • LunaMoon

    I just realized; how are we going to transfer USUM/SM Pokemon to Gen 8 on Switch? I hope they’ll allow some sort of DS/Switch connection which enables you to use some sort of AirDrop to drop your Pokemon across, and not either some stupid game hunting your Pokemon or not at all. Cuz if it’s like Gen 2 and 3 with the inability to transfer, that’ll stink.

    • Chaos

      Or Pokebank just become compatible with the Switch and Gen 8 games. I mean that’s the whole point right?

      • LunaMoon

        But you had to switch cartridges while transferring, and although yes they can send data to the Switch via your Nintendo Account, it would probably be complicated.

        • Non of what you said made sense

          • LunaMoon

            Yes it does, you had to take out the Moon cartridge out of the 3DS, then INSERT the Ultra Moon cartridge to deliver the Pokemon inside.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            Both your switch and 3DS will share the same bank. You won’t need to switch cartridges because both the Switch and 3DS have access to the same database for moving your Pokemon. But like all cross Gen transfer since Gen III > Gen IV, it’ll be irreversible.

          • LunaMoon

            Okie.

          • Shiny Lurantis
          • ….

            you put the Pokémon 3DS game in the 3DS and put them in bank

            You access Pokémon Bank on the Switch and take them out onto the Switch game

        • Shiny Lurantis

          Fam, i think you’re underestimating GameFreak and their software. It’s actually very simple, don’t worry about it. Technology wouldn’t be what limits GameFreak from letting you transfer your Pokemon. If you can’t transfer it’d be their choice.

    • Shiny Lurantis

      It’ll just be bank. Because it’s an application and not hardware it’ll be super easy for them to do.

      Hell, you could already transfer Pokemon between console and handheld in Gens III and IV, a one way transfer is nothing to worry about dude

    • POKÉMON BANK

      MY GOD

      • LunaMoon

        Yes but for Gen 7 you had to SWITCH THE CARTRIDGES, and you sort of can’t fit a Switch cartridge into a 3DS and vice versa.

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          I don’t think you would need to do that

          • LunaMoon

            But how else would you transfer? AirDrop?

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            No. You’d just have to download bank on the switch.

        • ….

          Oh my god

          They put Pokémon bank on the switch

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Wut? Once it’s up in the bank it’s in there. You’d out ALL your Pokemon in bank and then jump into your switch and bring them down again. There’ll be a bank app on the switch too most likely.

      • Shiny Lurantis
        • I’m so sick of people asking this lol. It’s so obvious

          • Shiny Lurantis

            I am too pal, they’re not worth your anger

          • I’m not actually that mad

          • Shiny Lurantis

            You come across as very angry tho

          • I guess so. Idk. I’m not even an angry person really. Idk

      • MenacingCascoon

        Speaking of they need to add some update to bank to allow, Item Storage and Search Option. I have too many Items I spend BP on to leave. And finding a pokemon in bank is crazy omg

        • Finding a Pokémon is pretty easy? Just use the search thing.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Wait there is a search option? I dont believe you!

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Gotta go with my girl Midnight Lycanroc. She’s been great. Mightyena was great in ORAS, But I like Lycanroc more.

    • Midday Lycanrock in Moon and Dusk Lycanrock left a bad taste in my mouth

      I wish I liked them more >.>

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Midnight is fun to use. Not a crazy fan of midday and dusk is fine, bit midnight was a good girl to me so I got rep it

      • Shiny Lurantis

        Dusk and Midday were literally the iPhones of Pokemon.

        Liked Midday Lycanroc? Here, here’s an objectively better one mechanically whilst having some less appealing traits to balance it out!

  • They should just make an open world Pokémon game and CALL it Kanto kinda like how every zelda game has a completely different looking Hyrule but they still call it Hyrule because some timeline bullshit

    • LunaMoon

      It could work, they could say it’s Kanto after years and years of devastation and natural destruction.

    • Shiny Lurantis

      I wouldn’t call it bullshit since time is known to change the appearance of a place, especially in the exaggerated medium of video games :p

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I mean I figured that’s what they’ll do. They’ll have landmarks and certain cities that are the same, but ultimately it’d look different.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Pokemon already has a timeline bullshit so we’re halfway there.

    • Chaos

      As long as we get a Skill Tree, and ability to craft items (Apricorn Pokeballs anyone?)

      • The more I think about it the less I think a skill tree would really work

        • Chaos

          Three Skill Trees. Physical, Special and Status. Choose how you want to play the game.

          • Wouldn’t a system that lets you dedicate “skill points” to stats to replace EVs and finally get rid of EV training be better?

          • Edited*

    • The Butter Grinch

      That sounds aweful. It wouldn’t be a 100% new region, for the fans it’d be pointless Gen 1 pandering and the Gen 1 fans would be dissapointed too, because it wouldn’t really be Kanto

      • That’s like saying BotW sucks because it’s like Ocarina but it isn’t Ocarina

        • The Butter Grinch

          Pokemon is diffrent from Zelda

          • How is this example different.

            Pokémon is an adventure game is it not? It has a big world. If we’re talking an open world loosely based on Kanto I think people would be happy with an open world to explore and wouldn’t mind that it uses the town names from Kanto and some vague geographical similarities

          • The Butter Grinch

            But why tho? Why not just make a new region if it won’t really be the same Kanto anyways?

          • I mean like, it is easier to borrow from something that already exists.

            I would prefer a totally new region but as long as it’s a mostly new experience I’m cool with it

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Lol how that’d be “aweful”, not all gen 1 fans want an exact copy of Kanto, and it wouldn’t really be gen 1 pandering because the region would be significantly different. Pokemon fans aren’t that black and white

    • MenacingCascoon

      They shouldnt. I hate Link games. Therefore, if that happened I’d be against it. I dont even like open world that much.

      • Well your opinion also doesn’t matter because you’ve never played a “link” game for more than 5 minutes so

        • MenacingCascoon

          #1. Yes I have
          #2. Even If I hadntthat proves my point that I hate them
          #3. My opinion is valid

          • 1. Four Swords doesn’t count
            2. You can’t hate a game if you haven’t played it
            3. No it isn’t unless you’ve actually experienced it for long enough to form a real opinion

            You refuse to ever break away from playing the same 3 games so how would you know if what other games did was good or bad?

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Why doesn’t 4 swords count, I want to feel proud for completing a zelda game 🙁

          • Nah I mean I like four swords but it isn’t representative of the series.

          • MenacingCascoon

            1. It wasnt four swords.
            2. I have played it lol
            3. Again I have soooo my opinion is pretty valid

            Lol, rn I play the same games, but I have tried outside my bubble

          • Oh really. What zelda game did you play and how long? Because I highly doubt it’s enough to actually form an opinion

          • MenacingCascoon

            Legend of Zelda Minish Cap for the Gameboy Advanced. I played that game for like 3 months. Sounds long enough for me to form an opinion

          • Ok fair enough but like… that’s not the same kind of open world anyways?

            You haven’t played Ocarina? Twilight Princess? For sure not BOTW

            Like I’ll say right now I prefer 3D Zelda to 2D Zelda

            I don’t think saying you “hate” the entirety of Zelda based on minish cap is fair at all

          • MenacingCascoon

            I didnt like Skyward Sword. I didnt like OoT. I didnt like other games open like that. Idk why its so hard for you to understand. I dont like open world

          • You didn’t play Ocarina even past the first dungeon. And I know you didn’t because you posted about it on here. That’s like watching 5 minutes of a movie and being like THIS MOVIE SUCKS AND SO DO THE SEQUELS

          • MenacingCascoon

            Ok? I didnt give OoT justice. Why?Because I dont like Open world games

      • Shiny Lurantis

        Sweetie I think the point landed on the other side of the country

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        So you’re hating the idea because it’s something that’s happened in a link game before?

        Sorry what

        • MenacingCascoon

          Because I dont like playing games like that. So that’s why I dont feel like it would fit. Plus pokemon definitely isn’t a series for that though lol

          • “I don’t like it so it doesn’t fit”

            Boi. Pokémon is a series about catching and battling monsters while exploring.

            How is an open world NOT perfect for that?

            Gen 1 was pretty open for the time anyways. An open world is the natural progression for that.

          • MenacingCascoon

            Im definitely not talking about open world, Im talking about being set in one region over and over with just a brand new design

          • But… if it’s a new design just with the same name… why does it matter?

          • MenacingCascoon

            Because it might as well a different place? Pokemon is not some fantasy world where it’s not based on Real world LoZ games. Pokemon is based on Real life places. So making a completely new region design with same name makes no sense

          • *face palm*

            ok in THIS context. It’s using Kanto as a base for an open world. It just has some geographical similarities and shares a name. It is still basically a whole new experience

            Why does it affect the game if they use the same name? Who cares?

  • The Butter Grinch
    • LunaMoon

      Cute pic….especially as Pheromosa is my first UB shiny!

  • Real talk: What really bothers me about some people is their ability to lie and post stuff like game leaks that don’t end up being true just to get an amusement out of others.

    • Discussion is good

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Sometimes it’s fun to talk about clearly fake rumors. I just can’t see a reason for people to come up with all kinds of legitimate sounding things only for them to be lies. Why out the effort into it?

  • The Butter Grinch

    Did that Larry Gekouga guy turn out to be fake? Cause something interesting is happening on Twitter…

    • Yes but what’s happening

      • The Butter Grinch

        He and some guy he knows has been posting some mysterious stuff related to the ”Canadian Starters” leak. Tho if he’s fake he’s probably just playing with people that still believe him.

        Also, how did he turn out to be fake?

        • He tried to claim Pokémon Plus and Minus were real

          context for you newbies. Pokémon Plus and Minus were rumors that spread after X and Y came out and actually got a lot of attention but were obviously fake

          • The Butter Grinch

            But didn’t he leak some XY stuff?

          • I guess he just wanted attention again

    • I hope he’s not fake. Because he says that Generation 8 Pokemon are in the process of being named and trademarked. As much as I hate the part about the battle system being changed, which is what he also mentioned. I want to believe the first point because that means Generation 8 and not this Kanto Remake garbage that I’m so worried about. If he’s fake though, there’s still some hope left. PokeSirena said that she heard the Chinese translation team was in the process of naming the new Pokemon back in November.

  • Why was the minecraft Pokémon mod the best Pokémon game since Black and White lol

  • Shiny Lurantis

    I know everyone’s speaking about the future of Pokemon but i’d actually like a demake of one of the games as a side game, i think it has the opportunity to be quite fun

    That or RBY but with the new types and Johto, including evos of Johto and Kanto mons

    • I want a demake of X and Y in BW style and some pacing adjustments

      • Shiny Lurantis

        BW3 but in the same style as BW(2) with all the new functions

        • And it has a plot that’s good like BW but a post game like B2W2

        • LunaMoon

          Ah yeah, since BW failed to make an actual third version, it instead should get a third game instead of a remake.

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            It would make more sense actually because it got 2 instead of a third version. And they never failed cuz they never tried in the first place lol

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Sorry I misread lol

          • Shiny Lurantis

            BW2 were better than any third version was in terms of being their own games tho? Platinum and Ultra Moon made me felt ripped off because they should’ve been what I got with Diamond and Moon

          • LunaMoon

            Third versions are different than sequels ya know.

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Yeah sequels are much better

          • Shiny Lurantis

            What? I know that, I’m just saying BW2 were far better. Third versions are a scam. Remakes aren’t

          • Shiny Lurantis

            *sequels

          • LunaMoon

            Meh, IMO I prefer third versions.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            ‘Meh, IMO I prefer being ripped off’

            FTFY

          • LunaMoon

            It’s called OPINIONS .

          • Shiny Lurantis

            It’s not an opinion that sequels are objectively less of a rip off than a third version

            Have you ever even played BW2? lol

          • LunaMoon

            No. But you cannot force me to not like third versions just because of that.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            I’m literally so done rn

          • LunaMoon

            For me having an opinion? OK.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            It’s not your opinion, it’s your attitude.

            Third versions, from an objective standpoint, are worse than sequels. They’re a scam. You’re allowed to like the third versions we have better than the sequels we have, but you can’t even acknowledge you’re being ripped off

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Why

            Sequels are basically third versions but with new story, new cast, new towns etc…

          • LunaMoon

            Because I like having that kind of alternate road.

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Eh, the alternate route is not very different from the maun game.

            At all 😡

          • LunaMoon

            I still like how there’s this middle Pokemon (Giratina, Rayquaza, Suicune) who is the main focus instead of either one of the spectrum.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            That’s what DLCs are for
            Or choice based games
            Not buying the same game with slight improvements

    • The Butter Grinch

      Just had an unlikely idea:
      What if the Kanto remakes is just a Spin off set in Kanto for 2018v?

      • The Butter Grinch

        *2018?

      • Shiny Lurantis

        Remakes wouldn’t be spinoffs, they’re far too marketable

        • The Butter Grinch

          No, just that someone with sources heard something about Kanto and thought it was a remake but it was actually just a Spin off

          • Shiny Lurantis

            But you just said ‘remake is just a spin off’

      • The announcement was clear: new core series games for 2018, which means they are no spinoff or remakes.

    • LunaMoon

      I mean the current games that are most likely to be remade are Gen 4, whether you like them or not, it’s fairly certain.

      • Read the post again

        • LunaMoon

          Not my fault I didn’t know demake wasn’t a typo.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            “I know everyone’s speaking about the future of Pokemon”

            what is context :p

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I love the idea of demakes and would like SM but in the style of BW. Or maybe BW with the style of RBY with Pkms having those weird sprites from the original Red and Green :0

    • Monkeyfuzz

      People do sprites in earlier gen style for new Pokemon and they often look really nice.

  • The Butter Grinch
  • Shiny Lurantis

    I’m really glad Ultra Necrozma exists because I think it sets up precedence for the Original Dragon in Black and White remakes 😡

    If we’re disregarding reality I’d rather they ported BW/2 on the eshop or something and then we’d have BW > BW2 > BW3 (which would have Mega Reshiram/Kyurem or Mega B/W Kyurem with the OD in the background just like UNecrozma)

  • Listen… listen

    No one wants a Kanto remake

    Ya know what we need

    A JOHTO REMAKE AYYYY

    POKÉMON SOUL MUSIC SILVER
    POKÉMON HEART ATTACK GOLD

    • LunaMoon

      “Heart Attack Gold”, What, Ho-Oh dies of a heart attack?

    • Shiny Lurantis

      Not unless they fix that god awful level curve

      • No make it even worse. Victory road mons are at level 20

        Only real Pokémon masters can beat this one

        • Shiny Lurantis

          Every mon evolves at Level 50 for their first time and then 100 for the second time, but NPCs ignore this

          Eat your heart out Unova

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      In Pokemon Soul Music Silver, everytime your Pokemon are in low health the song “I will survive” plays

        Uhh…
        Furret is a god
        Ampharos is a friend
        Scizor is a badass
        Ya got a bunch of Kanto Pokémon including Vulpix
        Murkrow in the safari zone my dude
        Slowking is the true king
        Tyranitar is late game goodness also available in the safari zone.
        Gastly is available EARLY

        Not to mention the two best eevees that aren’t Sylveon

        Johto is amazing if you just know where to look

        • Chaos

          Starters are the worst of all Gens. Absolutely terrible in literally every serious scenario in the game.

          Johto Pokemon aren’t even available as widely as the Kanto Pokemon.

          Ampharos had a terrible level up moveset in the originals, not much better in HGSS either.

          Scizor, and Slowking required trade to evolve, not as easy to do back in the days as it is now.

          Pupitar evolves into Tyranitar at lvl 55, with literally no where to grind out levels, due to once again, the terrible level curve.

          • Pfft. This is why I’m a Pokémon master and you’re not

          • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

      Overall some pretty interesting ideas.

  • Just curious if anyone knows how many times have deleted leaks on forums like Tieba, Reddit, 4chan, and 2ch have led to real leaks in the past and haven’t led to real leaks? I’d like a tally.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Not sure, but I know the most recent Kanto remake (sort of?) rumor was deleted by an admin that was deleting the SM leaks from 2016. That much on its own is interesting.

  • Just started playing Axiom Verge and based on the first 20 minutes, this game is the closest to the first Metroid than I’ve seen any other metroidvania come to. It’s great so far

  • JUST IN: Crobatair responded to PokeSirena and she said this regarding the deleted Kanto Remake post on Tieba forums: “Nothing else. ‘Kanto remake’ is just a nominal statement without any further details.” What’s your take? Real or fake? I wonder why the Tieba Admins would delete such a vague post. I’m sure there’s tons of posts on Tieba saying that the Switch game will be a Kanto Remake but why haven’t those been deleted? I don’t get it.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Also like it’s been said the admin that deleted it apparently has ties with a group of proven leakers and even was deleting leaks from 2016. It’s certainly telling, but it’s a very hard thing to out right say one way or the other. (I know I basically said this to your other post down below lol)

      • Maybe he deleted this time to help out the real leaks to prevent false information from spreading? I guess we’ll never know. All I know is that according to PokeSirena, two deleted Tieba forum posts in the past have led to valid information. That being the Sun and Moon Chinese leaks about no Gyms, etc. then the Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon Chinese leaks mentioning Team Rainbow Rocket. I’m sure that there’s tons of other posts on Tieba that say the Switch game is a Kanto Remake. Why haven’t they deleted those then? I am just so confused. Ah well. There’s nothing we can do but wait to see what happens.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          With all the threads that just simply talk about rumors/leaks and whatever I’m not sure the admin would just delete one in order to make sure fake rumors weren’t spreading. would be a waste of time since there are many more fakes out there. It’s more suspicious that they did in fact delete it. If they left it alone the post may have just blended into the void of all the other posts. Now it’s got some slightly possible credit just because an admin that apparently has ties to leakers deleted it.

          • It is suspicious and warrants some attention and concern. Though I heard from PokeSirena that 3 of her sources (all of which knew about Rainbow Rocket early) mention that the Switch game will indeed be Generation 8, one source says it will be DP Remakes, and one source says Kanto Remakes (not sure if she is counting the deleted Tieba leak or not). Again, there’s nothing that we can do but wait and see what happens. Which is sad. All I want is Generation 8. That’s all I want! I honestly don’t care about anything else at this point. Lol.

          • PokeSirena also said to me (I’ve been keeping it touch with her) that she hasn’t really seen any Tieba forum posts mentioning the Switch game being a Kanto Remake, so that also warrants futher concern. I don’t really know what to think to be honest. There’s so much “information” spreading around about the Switch game, I don’t know what to believe anymore. I just want my new Generation 8 Pokemon dammit!

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            “concern” as if a crazy new look for Kanto would be a bad thing considering it hasn’t really been fleshed ever. Anyway I have a theory that I posted yesterday. You say you want gen 8, but how would you feel about a somewhat reboot where we are in Kanto, but it has a larger dex with brand new Pokemon in it and a new story? I’m sort of thinking that the people saying that we’ll get gen 8 and the people saying we’ll get a Kanto return are both kind of right. It would be sort of a hybrid of the 2 things. I doubt they’ll just simply remake the original Kanto story again only with the new features we have now. It’d make more sense for them to do a brand new story even if it’s still in Kanto.

  • Spetsnaz

    So hoping to get some ideas from you guys. One of my coworkers got the download codes for both ultra sun and ultra moon, didn’t realize she couldn’t use them on a regular ds, so they’re giving me the codes for me and my step son, are any version exclusives better for newer players than others? And can anybody recommend switch games that are good for 3 or 4 people?

    • For the Switch, I can recommend Snipperclips. It’s a download only title from the Nintendo eShop. It’s a good game and a lot of fun with friends. At least that’s how I found it to be. Not sure what others would think.

    • Mario Kart 8
      Rocket League

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Honestly it might just be easier for a younger player to play with the regular time of US than the flipped time of UM. There aren’t that many version exclusives and they don’t make too much difference to gameplay. Totem Gumshoos is probably easier than Alolan Raticate unless using a Fighting type. It’s really just personal preference though.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Who has a regular ds and thinks that brand new games would still work on them? this is why Nintendo was dumb with the naming of their last gen of consoles. It was the same with the Wii U. Just call it something completely different and people will better understand what they’re buying.

      • InfinityD4

        Hey! 3DS is a way better name than Wii U.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Fair, but “New 3DS” is just as bad if not worse. Just saying

          • InfinityD4

            THAT I CAN AGREE WITH.

        My body feels like a dumpster fire

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So apparently something that got brushed under the rug for the anime is that there was a teaser of Giovanni doing some weird stuff. It’s prolly a teaser for the Rainbow Rocket arc if there really is one. Will be interesting to see if Ash recognizes any of the evil leaders or if it’s just some crap where he has selective amnesia.

    • He’ll probably have selective amnesia. Lol.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I swear to god…..He personally battled Giovanni in BW and on top of that has officially battled all the previous leaders in all other series….It’d be dumb for him to see Lysandre and be like “Who the heck is this guy?” He literally just had an adventure in Kalos…….

        • InfinityD4

          If he does actually recognize Lysandre it woould be funny if Lysandre would either be Who’s this Kid or YOU AGAIN.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I would like it for Lysandre to not recognize him, but for him to recognize Lysandre. That way Ash isn’t a total freaking idiot and since Lysandre would be from a different universe he wouldn’t remember Ash anyway.

          • InfinityD4

            I was thinking maybe it was a universe in which he met Ash but also killed him.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I don’t think they’ll reference a universe where Ash died haha

          • InfinityD4

            I now want someone to make a version of that who’s this sassy lost child pic from one punch man but with Ash and Lysandre

      • InfinityD4

        I mean the Movies either are non-canon except to eachother(and that special with Mewtwo but they gave him amnesia intentionally) because WHO WOULD FORGET MEETING CELEBI

        • InfinityD4

          AND ALSO GOD, HE PROBABLY FORGOT HE MET GOD.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            The movies sure are in their own thing, but he met and battled all the evil leaders in the show itself. Those things are canon to the current season even. So it would be very VERY frustrating for him to suddenly forget who these major people are,

          • InfinityD4

            I hope so, it’s pretty hard to Forget a Guy with Neon Orange Hair who TRIED TO NUKE FRANCE(or whatever his crazy zygarde plot in the anime was)

    • Monkeyfuzz

      New season, who dis?

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Right? I’m willing to accept him not totally recognizing Maxie and Archie for whatever reason, but Lysandre was literally his enemy in the last adventure he was on. Especially if the XY friends end up cameoing at some point I’d be very annoyed….

        • Monkeyfuzz

          He does get electrocuted, burned etc alot, maybe amnesia is a side-effect.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            It turns out that Ash had to go to Alola for a vacation because after what happened in Kalos his doctor told him he needed to stop going on adventures because he has brain damage and severe ptsd

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Would explain so much tbh.

          • InfinityD4

            and his mom just said it was because Barrierd won a Contest with it’s amazing Psychic Fairy Powers

          • The Butter Grinch

            But he won the Alola vacation in a lottery?

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            That was a trick made up by his doctor

          • InfinityD4

            His mom used Mimey to make him Believe with it’s amazing Psychic Fairy Powers

        • InfinityD4

          Well I mean They and Cyrus weren’t really involved as much as Lysandre, or even Giovanni and Ghetsis in BW

    • EarthenWarrior

      Team Rocket wants to find Ultra Beasts and give them to Giovanni

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I mean I bet that’s where we’re headed. Makes sense to me.

      • InfinityD4

        Holy Crap, if Team Rocket Gets Poipole.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          They won’t lol They won’t in general because they’re TR and they don’t get jack. Also merch is teasing that maybe Ash gets it. Maybe for keeps or maybe for temps, but he’d be the one to get it and not them.

          • InfinityD4

            just to be clear we mean catch/hangs around with, like how Bewear works.

            Maybe hang out, but not catch. Ash MIGHT catch it, but it likely won’t be permanent

          • Monkeyfuzz

            If he gets it it’ll evolve and go back to Ultra Space by the end of Gen 7 anime.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            That’s what I’m thinking. I can’t see him taking it home to Kanto just to live at Prof Oaks place

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It definitely won’t. Also not sure if they are even continuing Ultra Beasts into the future.

          • InfinityD4

            not adding probably, but I doubt they’d delete pokemon.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            That’s what I mean. They might just make them like most past gen legends and forget the Ultra Beast thing.

          • InfinityD4

            so you just mean returning to status quo.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            That seems like something they’d do.

          • InfinityD4

            Again, Status Quo, so it’s kinda the definition.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Idk of all the newer mechanics I could see them having UBs make occasional appearances here and there in the future.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            But would they keep the whole Ultra Space thing and UB name? I’m not so sure.

          • InfinityD4

            He has had a Gible, which evolves into a Psuedo-Legendary but never evolved, and a Goomy, which did evolve, but he released.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            His Gible not evolving to at least Gabite annoys me.

  • Doctah Govnah

    i still havent beaten USUM

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      It’s worth beating. The ending is a fun little thing and the post game is nice too.

      • Doctah Govnah

        I just found the Ultra wormhole and was like I needa do this

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Oh yeah that’s dangerous. I caught myself for a brief moment thinking that maybe I’d take a little time to fly through it before going to Ultra Megalopolis, but ultimately said nah I’ll finish things up.

          • Doctah Govnah

            Yea its all I been doing since i got to it

    • Neither have I pal, neither have I

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I want the Shadow Triad to come back…..I like them as a secret assassin squad that did special mission for TP

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Also I hope Colress continues to show up. He’s such a great character

      • InfinityD4

        I wonder if they’re tracking Colress since he’s kinda a good guy now(although he was morally grey(hence the name)in the first place)

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Oh god PLEASE let this be a thing!! I’d love it if he had a mini arc in the ext game where you meet him and then end up running into the triad because they’re keeping close tabs on him.

          • InfinityD4

            I just Realized Ghetsis the Mastermind Behind/Leader of an organization of knights/pirates who also has a Personal Trio of Ninjas

          • InfinityD4

            I wonder if he Knows but just doesn’t care.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I bet it’s that. He seems like the kind of guy that’ll just continue doing whatever it is he feels like and doesn’t care if he’s being followed so long as they don’t get in the way of his research.

          • InfinityD4

            he has a Ninja Detector in his Fridge Suit.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Hmmmmm in the spirit of canine Pokémon I’m trying to think of any fakemon I have

    ….All I got is an experimental Dark/Psychic Lunar Wolf Pokemon

    Lupup-Wargrowl-Dyvinir

  • InfinityD4

    Ya know, other than the fact it would have a terrible 4x weakness to fighting, I Think Rockruff and Lycanroc could have been Rock/Normal Rock/Dark(for Midnight)

    • EarthenWarrior

      A lot of people think that Midnight should be dark but honestly I don’t see it anymore

      Lycanroc midnight isn’t malevolent or vicious, more of a battle hungry combatant who lives to fight stronger and stronger opponents, it’s just hot blooded

      • Doctah Govnah

        stop being rude

      • Ultron

        Isn’t that a lot of fighting and dark types though?

        • EarthenWarrior

          Fighting yes and Dark it really matters why/how they fight (examples Crawdaunt, Sharpedo and Hydreigon are extremely aggressive and attack anything that moves)

          I’m just saying I personally don’t feel the Darkness in Lycanroc these days

          And believe me Stab Sucker Punch would be so freakin helpful but I like em how they are

          • Ultron

            Yeah I mean the pure rock doesnt bother me, but I can see a case for dual typing

  • Nintendalek42

    So I just got to look at the USUM Pokédex guide, not expecting anything interesting out of it (I buy them to collect them), it’s the usual does it’s job except it doesn’t include mega evolution dex entries for some reason… But then it had some interviews at the start with some very interesting detail on the development philosophy of the games and on the general design ethos for pokémon. Like how sugimori’s ethos is purposefully making sure pokémon aren’t too cool by altering them accordingly, so they can be more interesting and memorable; or how they purposefully go out to make controversial additions like ultra beast rather than give us what we expects.
    The USUM development interview is interesting because it reveals how deeply they think about things… and it’s interesting to think how somehow they simultaneously miss out on making things feel perfectly done, in the classic gamefreak style

  • Nintendalek42

    Also this is super late because I saw it back when it came out but I was busy then, and I still want to throw out a few thoughts:

    -It was as mediocre as expected, though enjoyable.

    -The visual quality could be weirdly inconsistent but overall was enchanting, definitely the best aspect of the film.

    -The new characters (the travelling companions and the rival) were honestly mostly utterly bland stock characters with no ounce of the charm of the ones they replace, and that old Bonji dude was empty exposition character use at it’s finest (though they somehow cared enough to give him a massively intriguing design without exploring that aspect at all).

    -Overall it mostly felt like a visually stunning but often empty retread of the first few big beats of the anime’s start, banking off emotional attachment that couldn’t be built up because here the time we originally had wasn’t there (I think the best example of this was the buterfree goodbye, which really was just cashing in on nostalgia feels)

    -The inclusion of marshadow and it’s tie into ho-oh was probably the most egregious nonsensical inclusion of a legendary “because it needs to feature in the story” I’ve ever seen. I haven’t been watching the movies for a while but this whole crap that Bonji was throwing about Marshadow being the shadow guardian just felt nakedly lazy like I’ve never seen before, Marshadow in universe is just important because it’s important, because it was in the development checklist.

    -That pikachu talking scene was surprising but obviously it’s just to highlight the strength of the emotional connection, so I don’t really have many thoughts about it

    -All that said my overall impression wasn’t really negative because this is the general quality I expected. I mostly went for the special pikachu, and I got what paid for: a fun time with my friends.
    It says a lot that the ending clip and generations episodes they showed afterwards were probably the highlight of the whole thing haha .

    Two things stood out though:
    -THAT LUXRAY SCENE… Boy, that messed us up, did not expect something that harsh.

    -So everyone’s talking about the pikachu talking scene, how come i’ve never seen anyone talking about the ASH COMA THEORY MIGHT BE REAL SCENE. Like holy sh*t that was so weird/perturbing/unexpected/why/interesting! It was so jarring to see a world without pokémon that makes sense like ours! Who would ever have thought pokémon would tackle that! It had ash and co at a regular school and all! Cars instead of pokémon on the posters! I was so confused as to where they were going with it… THE IMPLICATIONS! That was so unnerving yet fascinating! I don’t understand why the hell they went there but I’d love to see this sort of aspect more explored!

    Though I do I think it was mediocre overall, I’m certainly intrigued that the next movie seems to stay in this continuity but add in Pokémon 2000’s plot elements, and look forward to seeing more of that

  • So, I bought Night In The Woods. I’m interested to see where it goes

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Good

      It’s an awesome game :0

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Man im so tempted to buy XC2 even though the previous title on Wii U didnt do much for me. I just donno what to buy with all this money in my eshop wallet lol

    • Wait for Hollowknight to come out on Switch

      And get Stardew Valley

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Whats Hollowknight?

      • Daedardus

        Don’t listen to her! Well do listen but get XC2 too.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Tbf this game fixes some problems that X had like the combat (which is the best part now) and quests (they aren’t as tedious as before)

      But still if you didn’t like I wouldn’t recommend getting this one just in case lol

    • Daedardus

      Do ittttt.

  • EarthenWarrior

    So Samson’s Komala officially knows Rapid Spin, Wood Hammer and newly learnt Sing which is interesting i say this because Popplio learns Sing and it shown a liking to it and it’s one of the pokemon that can pass it down via egg moves

  • The Butter Grinch

    I’m sick and I feel like f*cking sh*t and I wanna b*tch about it

    • …???…………………

    Arcanine and midnight lycanroc are my two personnel favorites.

      I love Arcanine. I used one in White 2 and it was one of my strongest.

  • Shady
  • Night In The Woods is pretty good so far

  • ShinyXatu

    I’m really proud of myself tonight! I just ordered a Series 3 Apple Watch with an extra strap entirely with my own money earned from working (as well as a couple gift cards and a Christmas bonus). It’s definitely biggest purchase I’ve made so far but it feels really good to have earned this all on my own. Sure it’s a ridiculously expensive Apple accessory but it’s also a symbol of hard work! It’ll be here a couple days before the new year and I’ll probably wait until then to open it, just for added effect.

    • ShinyXatu

      Update: for some reason my card was declined and I don’t know how to fix it. That’s no fun. I hope to report back with good news tomorrow.

      • Daedardus

        Most likely because it’s the biggest purchase you made and either the bank flagged it as fraud or you went over your limit.

    • PJ

      We’re proud of you 🙂 I’m sure you can get your card issues worked out soon

  • Hey guys in Sage are there Shinies? If so do they make the sparkle thing?

    I just saw a Musburry (weird berry mongoose thing) with a Pink nose and berries rather than blue

    • Monkeyfuzz

      No there aren’t, Musberry changes depending on what berry it holds.

      • Oh… I must of found a pink berry holder then

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Yeah I think it’s Pecha the pink ones hold.

    Good morning all I decided to shiny hatch Oricorio as they’re beautiful.

  • LunaMoon

    What jerks would want me to give them a Poipole for an oricorio?

    • EarthenWarrior

      Just freakin go catch one you lazy idiot

      • LunaMoon

        I’m trying to get another country’s one to be able to do the Masuda Method. No need to insult as I’m intelligent enough to know that it takes two to tango and one of them must be from where I’m from.

  • The Butter Grinch

    Kinda related to the article:
    Do you guys have any Dog Fakemon?

    • LunaMoon

      Never.

      • The Butter Grinch

        What?…

        • LunaMoon

          Psychic as cats are quite intelligent and becomes a pyro-cat at the end because of its intelligence flooding its mind, giving it the power to create fire out of floating molecules.

          • The Butter Grinch

            what?…

          • LunaMoon

            It’s a better ida than Octillery and Remoraid.

    • EarthenWarrior

      It’s a wolf
      Lupup-Wargrowl-Dyvinir
      Dark/Psychic wolves with a connection to the moon

      Kinda going off the whole warg or vargr vibe with some Fenrir but with deep family bonds

    • The Butter Grinch

      Mine is a Normal/Ice type based on Mountain SAR dogs named Searchcue. It has two possible abilities. One makes it more likely to find rare pokemon if Searchcue is the first mon in your party. The second one works like pickup but it can only find Full Restores and has no effect in battle.

    • I keep trying to make Dachshund work and I’m in the process of making a Red wolf an animal that lives only in a small portion of North Carolina and is very rare

    Lycanroc is the better dog, and apparently Sand Rush negates sandstorm damage

      it’s a rock type, rock ground and steel types get no damage from sandstorm

  • LunaMoon

    Well hey everyone I’m going to try not to make this day a bad one as it started wrong but let’s be happy! Please wish meh luck as I now shiny hatch this Oricorio.

  • LunaMoon

    Ooh this Champion’s theme is beautiful. I hope they use these in the Gen 4 remakes!

  • LunaMoon

    After listening to some Japanese-esque version of King Dedede’s song, I came up with some neat places the next Pokemon region could be:

    – Cambodia (Beautiful temples)
    – Nepal (A nice mountainous region)
    – Tibet (Could have a story based on the monks and Buddhism)
    – Iran (Literally could be filled with Persians)
    – Mongolia (Nobody can stop the Huns)

    • EarthenWarrior

      AH’LL KICK DAT KURBY TO THR KURB

    • Gikie

      Omg Cambodia and SE Asia would make me so happy to see. Especially, if the whole tradition and innovation holds

      • LunaMoon

        Hopefully they do something like that instead of a more bland region, no offence, like Spain or Australia.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Speaking of fakemon one Pokémon I want to experiment with

    A literal lionfish a large aquatic big cat with vivid colors and wild fins and quills

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Reminds me of Sea Kings from One Piece.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Obviously

  • Hmm what’s a type that affiliates best with light? Because I’m making a Dragon Pokémon who has ties with light and such and wanted to give it a good type combo to make it good

    Would Dragon/Fairy, Dragon/Fire or Dragon/Electric work?

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Can someone explain to me why in the world people would want a main series game that features the player characters being an already established characters like Lillie or Gladion? The purpose of the pcs in Pokemon are that they are blank slates that anyone can push their own personas onto. If you play as Lillie for instance you’re playing as a character that already has a a personality and a specific name. Even lets say if you get customization back. Suddenly having the ability to change not only the name of her and her look would make being her in the first place useless. Why even bother at that point? Some rpgs are meant to be where you play as a specific person like FF. It’s meant to be that way for a reason as you are playing a story revolving around that person. In Pokemon the story is supposed to revolve around YOU as a person. Why would you want to go on a Pokemon journey that’s for someone else? I just don’t understand……Having characters return in a support role is one thing. PLAYING as those characters is dumb.

    • LunaMoon

      PCs are the computers where you store your Pokemon, you know.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        *sigh*…… you’re telling jokes now huh?

        • LunaMoon

          No, I’m pointing out that PC means that.

    • Shiny Lurantis

      Not really? If it can be used to tell a better narrative, go for it. It’s just that it’ll restrict other aspects of the game. The reason than Unova and Alola had great narratives compared to the rest of the series was because whilst it was still your journey, it’s N or Lillie’s story.

      • It’s not N’s story in black and white at all. You as a player serve as the antithesis of N. he wants Pokémon to be freed but you as a player want to catch and battle Pokémon because that’s why you play Pokémon.

        • Shiny Lurantis

          N develops. You don’t. Bianca and Cheren develop. You don’t.

          Although you’re the hero of the story, it’s those characters who develop and form a proper narrative.

          • That’s ridiculous. You still drive the plot forward.

          • Shiny Lurantis

            Your character is nothing but a plot tool. You’re essentially a non-character.

          • No shiit you’re the power character

            But your inherit wants from a Pokémon game define your character and that’s where the conflict with N emerges

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            *player, and player characters can actually have a role in the plot lol

            Because everyone has differing opinions, and it relies on the input of someone outwith the game, it’s not that strong of a narrative because it simultaneously tries to be a self insert narrative and an established narrative. Because of this, and the fact there’s already opposition for N to play off of, your character is really more of a catalyst in a chemical reaction than anything.

          • No because if you play Pokémon, you’re playing it to battle and catch Pokémon BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THE GAME IS ABOUT.

            If you didn’t want to do that you would be playing some other RPG.

            Youre really underselling BW

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            Alright Beyonce lets take the tone down a notch or ten

            People may agree with N in terms of the treatment of Pokemon in other ways, for example forcefully liberating them from bad trainers or they enter the game with a different opinion and then either agree with N or see parts of his point. For Black and White, it isn’t that black or white.

            BW has a good narrative… For a Pokemon game. There’s games out there that are considered the weakest of their series that have a better narrative.

  • They already finished recording Gen VIII Starter Pokemon voices.

    -Shizuka Ishigami
    -Mutsumi Tamura
    -Rie Murakawa
    -Ikue Otani

    Does anyone have a link to this source? It was mentioned by someone under the Disquis name of “Mario” in the previous article.

    • Wow, the voice of Kobayashi from Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid (Mutsumi Tamura)? That’d be cool if this turns out to be true

      • My concern is that Ikue Otani is among them on the list, which means Pikachu could be a Starter, lending credibility to the deleted Kanto Remake Tieba leak. I DO NOT want a Kanto Remake for the Switch! Anyways, I contacted PokeSirena to see if she heard anything about this. Waiting for a response back. It could just be that “Mario” on Disquis is being saracastic for all we know.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Yeah I figured it was probably made up. I haven’t heard anything from the people I’ve been following either. The only thing I’ve heard is that the human characters may possibly have an AC style VA, but who knows what this point.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Imagine if this time she does not voice a dragon. In other words, what I am trying to say, she is going to voice Charmander.

      • EarthenWarrior
    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Where’d you see that? Also a note Ikue Otani is the voice of Pikachu. *Cough*Kanto return*cough*

      • I know. That’s what worries me. It was on the previous article’s comments section about the rumors. Someone under the Disquis name of “Mario” said it. I wrote to PokeSirena about this and got a response from her. She said that she hadn’t heard anything. So it’s likely Mario is just making it up to be funny. I asked Mario where he heard it and if he had a link to the source. I doubt I’ll get a response back. His comment was posted over 11 hours ago.

  • Monkeyfuzz
  • EarthenWarrior

    Omfg there’s this GIGANTIC Doberman at the vet

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So just jumping off of the supposed VA for the gen 8 starters being recorded. What recording really? The only Pokemon to date that actually needs recording is Pikachu. Unless they’re switching all the Pokemon over to saying their names.

    • Shiny Lurantis

      They may also just be switching over to using human voice actors for their animal sounds to make it more organic feeling.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I suppose it makes sense honestly. It’s not a hard thing to add and it adds to the overall growth of the games. Especially if they’re going to continue scaling things up to fit the full HD environment they’ll have.

    • ShinyXatu

      Where is this coming from exactly?

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Don’t worry about it. It’s turning to be likely false anyway. ??

      • Don’t know. Just some guy on Disquis under the name of “Mario” that posted in the previous article about the rumors.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    So Lugia is definitely confirmed for movie 21 through merchandise, hopefully we get more soon, confirmation of a certain Electric type perhaps.

    • There was supposedly a third blanked out spot on the merchandise sheet. Probably for that said Pokemon.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        That or a Gen 8 ‘mon, probably that though. I wonder if the Ho-oh inclusion means it will pop up again or if it’s just to go with the Lugia Figure.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Prolly just to go with Lugia. I’m not sure it got a figure this year, but I could be wrong. Even if it did it’d make sense for them to release both at the same time.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Great, Lugia top 2 gen 2 legendary behind Suicune

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I like Raikou best of Gen 2 Legends.

      Raikou? Suicune and Entei got their own Movies

        If only, but no the other one Zeraora.

          I know, we all know, it’s a Joke.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I see, wasn’t sure everyone knew about it by now,

          • InfinityD4

            well it’s probably more like 90% of people here who actively comment.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So apparently the UB promotion for merch ends by the end of the summer. If we don’t get a new game next year, what will they promote?

    • Shiny Lurantis

      Necrozma and random Pokemon

      • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

        Zeraora probably

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I mean they’re already doing that now in general. Just seems like they won’t have anything specific to focus on. Especially since by then Zeraora will likely have already gotten some merch in the run up to the movie (I believe it’ll be in the movie)

    • LunaMoon

    Tbh I hope for a pokemon game in the future where you can kinda establish yourself as a character. Even just a little. Would be kinda interesting I think, I’d like to see how GF would handle that

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Kinda happened with Memory link in BW2 didn’t it? You might also count Red.

      • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

        Red doesn’t count

    Jesus fuckkk I forgot how much I loved Wally’s themes until now

      I don’t think the intent was to suggest Poochyena was first.

      • Griffins a cool dude. He isn’t just copying another list. It’s what his favorites are. Just his opinion on the ones he played

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Forgot Botw was released in 2017

      Time is passing by too quickly

      • It’s so weird to be here for when a masterpiece like BOTW comes out

  • bell02alpha

    So is it a thing here where no one answers the question of the actual topic anymore and just talks about whatever the heck they want or not?

    Anyway… Rockruff

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis
    • Monkeyfuzz

      Well there’s not much to talk about after initially stating and replying to other peoples’ favourites, most of which was done near the beginning of the articles comments. So after that we tend to go into general Pokemon/Game talk with some completely off-topic stuff thrown in.

      I like Rockruff too, especially shiny https://78.media.tumblr.com/d77ccefe58f35ed1080cc50ed363426a/tumblr_oubxfxoOSa1r8sc3ro1_500.gif

    • They do at first but at a point there isn’t much else to discuss

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Best Ball for Shiny Bisharp? It’s between Heavy, Moon and Beast.

    • Heavy for sure

    • I’d say Heavy

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      Moon Ball has all the colours of a shiny Bisharp so it’s the best dood

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Hm, it does. Though Heavy has a nice Steel type feel to it. I might see how Pawniard looks in both before I decide.

  • Riahi

    How do the chinese leakers have info on the gameplay though? didnt they have info on the script? you are telling me they know about the battle system from a script of the game?

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      The Chinese leakers that were mentioning the scripts and translations weren’t where the battle changes came from. Right now the rumors are coming from a few different sources. All of them have at least some merits, but of course take with a grain of salt.

      • Riahi

        does the battle system part come from the same people who leaked the rainbow rocket?

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Hmmmm not sure actually. They may have known about RR, but they’re not the ones that people would say are famous for leaking it. The battle system rumor comes from a couple of different sources on Twitter. I couldn’t link you to them so sorry about that. Either way they seem to have at least some knowledge or connections. It’s just whether the info they were told is actually true/used in the gen 8 games. Either way from what I’ve seen they’re very sincere and don’t have a history of being trolls. They of course tell people to be careful of what to believe and to be cautious, but ultimately at this point I don’t see any reason to not believe them. As far as I know the RR leaker is Chinese and hasn’t explicitly said anything about it, but to be honest at this point there’s a lot of sources saying stuff and while many of them SEEM somewhat believable it’s hard to keep track of exactly where certain things came from right off the top of my head. Here’s a pretty decent compilation of all the stuff we know (or think we know lol) right now. https://forums.bulbagarden.net/index.php?threads/generation-8-rumours-fakes-leaks.241013/

          • Riahi

            thanks for the reply

          • Riahi

            so I read the unconfirmed leaks and it seems like the battle system change comes only from one source/leaker , I thought there were multiple sources supporting that

        • UnburdenedLegume

          RR was leaked on a Chinese forum and then (roughly) translated and shared on 4chan. So yes its from the same source i think

    • UnburdenedLegume

      No one knows where they got it from, but it were Chinese people who leaked the Alolan starters last year as well so they do have some credibility.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        You talking about the actual leakers of the starter image or the guy on Twitter that translated it ? (don’t want to use his name as I don’t want him getting too swarmed by people, privacy and all) If you’re talking about him then he’s not Chinese at all. He lives in Japan and from the one video on his non active YT channel I heard his voice he sounds very black. I could be wrong tho lol

        • UnburdenedLegume

          I honestly dont remember the name of the person who leaked the starters tbf

    Alrights Pokéjunglers, I got some hands on exclusive insider information regarding Pokémon Switch. It’s best to keep this confined since it contains sensitive details about the game.

    – The next game will have Pokémon in its title.
    – The game will be for the Nintendo Switch console
    – It’s possible to buy the game through both retail and digital channels
    – The game will feature Pokémon, which you can use to battle with
    – It’s possible to add aditional Pokémon to your team
    – The game is being made by Game Freak, who apparently made several previous entries in the Pokémon franchise.
    – The game will be exclusive to Nintendo consoles, due to a never-seen-before deal made with Nintendo and Game Freak.
    – The game will feature a story which you can complete and continue on playing afterwards.
    – The game is set to release an unspecified time after writing this post, but we do know it’s not releasing before.

    That’s all! They are quite the changes to the overal formule, do you like them? Discuss!

    Anyone remember when the anime screwed up and revealed Dewott and Servine early? Like, the BW starter lines as a whole also leaked (far closer to reveal than the SuMo starters tho, but the SuMo starters didn’t have leaked middle evos), but these were leaked and confirmed extremely quickly because Woobat and Axew were revealed like a week later.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/30e7fa4edf09ca887424cbbbb87ff411e5d3efbe253a01d729dc334db3705d85.png

    • LunaMoon

      Ah yeah, the anime which also destroyed the fun parts of Team Rocket and made them into Plasma 2.0 for the anime, made fifty thousand “rivals”, and removed fun contests. I HATE the B/W anime. At least the S/M anime had some great moments, B/W overall was belch, with a few gold moments like Dawn returning as well as Cynthia and Looker.

            ? I’m talking about how Rattata is a Meme, it’s okay to insult Patrat though.

          • LunaMoon

            I had no idea that Rattata was a meme, I just thought it had enough letters to make the same rhythm as Mickey.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      The marketing team (or whoever was in charge for this kind of stuff) were really competent back then

      • Totem Shiny Lurantis

        The new marketing team now is really competent and are extremely good at hyping things. It’s just that they don’t have enough content to work with.

        This is especially apparent with Gen V and VI which were super hype but had very little left to the imagination, whilst they tried their best to hype USUM but it just didn’t have enough content to hype.

        • Totem Shiny Lurantis

          *VI and VII, lol.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            USUM had a hype season!?

          • LunaMoon

            Wasn’t 75% of the hype season people just disappointed how similar it was and then 25% hyped?

          • Yes

            Nah it was just a season cuz it had no hype

    • I remember this scan and reporting on it when I used to have my fansite.
      R.I.P. Pokemon Aqua Crystal. <3

  • Totem Shiny Lurantis

    On the topic of starter leaks, which disappointed you more? Unova, or Alola? Did you prefer one whilst being more disappointed from an individual design in it?

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/5c60873d072b870e29dc7c3af514bdf12b2bd861cb1bba0e285bb142562ce783.png

    I can remember where I was when I saw these, which is odd because I usually can’t remember any hype season before SuMo super well. That said, I was quite indifferent. These were probably the least surprising ways for these Pokemon to develop besides Samurott, but at that point I really didn’t like Oshawott anyway so I didn’t care. And I like pigs too much to care Emboar was now Fighting-type. The middle evos were either leaked before (Servine and Dewott) or literally just an inbetween with no traits of their own (Pignite) so they didn’t really sway me at all.

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8c34dd8a2319cf55c767244837f6c4dd86048554cf1de0beb1a8bd998512e6a1.jpg

    I really didn’t mind Popplio until I saw these. I absolutely loved Primarina’s design, and as SuMo hype season is when I really started to like Fairy-types, I was so excited for it.

    Might come as a surprise to some, but before I joined here in like August(?) 2016, I stanned Rowlet and couldn’t stand Litten. I actually didn’t really like Incineroar until I did a playthrough with it, whereas I liked Rowlet until I saw more and more of Decidueye at which point I stopped caring. Not a big fan of the feather fingers or the goofy goggles, and when the hood goes down it looks uggo.

    So overall, Unova just didn’t faze me and Alola was a mixed bag. Which is arguably better because it actually provoked opinion from me.

    • InfinityD4

      Wrestlecat grew on me. the only leaks that changed my mind on a starter were the small ones right before XY came out and revealed the Disappointment that was Delphox(which isn’t as bad as I remember it looking)

    • I can’t bring myself to hate any of the Unova starters or their evolutions including emboar but Inceliroar is just the worst

      • Totem Shiny Lurantis

        How can be Incineroar be any more of a disappointment than Emboaring tho? Third Fighting-type in a row and not even the middle evo can redeem it :p

        • Because I don’t know something about Emboar looks huggable

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            I’m not the best judge of that because anything I use on an in-game team becomes huggable to me :p

          • Don’t use a Ferrothorn

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            Won’t unless I fail my exams 🙂 :p

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Emboar IS huggable :3

            http://i.imgur.com/JHXwXsY.jpg

          • Yay!

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Lol when the unova starters leaked I only cared about NSUNS2 back then.

      But about the Alolans, I was fascinated at how creative Deci was, like whoever made that leak evolved Rowlet’s theme about throwing its feathers in a very cool way, and I really liked the design too like Deci alone made me wish the leaks were tru.

      My reaction to Inci was pretty much the same I have now, couldn’t whether I like it or not. And for Prima I really liked its design back then, now it’s just meh to me ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • I’d have to say Unova.

      For Unova, I can’t stand Emboar. I feel like there was so much missed potential and that it would of been great as a quadrupedal pig. Serperior was middle ground, didn’t love or hate it. And I didn’t mind Oshawott’s line. But it’s not my favorite Water type Starter line out there.

      For Alola, the same with Incineroar, I couldn’t stand it but wasn’t surprised that it turned out to be bipedal given the theme that the past 6 Generations before it featured final Fire type Starter Evolutions that were bipedal. Decidueye was middle ground like Serperior. And I loved Popplio’s line.

    • Ultron

      Kalos. All suck.

      Probably Alola I guess? Because I didn’t like Tepig from the beginning so Emboar couldn’t disappointment me. Snivy turned out amazing, so the only disappointment was Samurott. With Alola I had hopes for Popplio’s evos, and I simply don’t care for them now. And with Litten, Incineroar is major salt in the wound because the first two evos are awesome.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I was so happy to finally see little Pokabu’s evos and I LOVED EM

    • belmad

      I hated Emboar but secretly wanted this leak to be real because of Samurott.

  • ShinyXatu

    *THE BELOW POST IS 99.9% NOT REAL*
    I saw this posted on 4chan and it looks deceptively real. I guess it’s possible to copy that format but maybe, just maybe, there really is an unlisted video on the Nintendo channel.

    • This would be so easy to fake lol

    • It wouldn’t surprise me if we got a Direct in January or February to show off some of the titles that are upcoming for the year. But I wouldn’t count on seeing Pokemon for Switch news there. It would probably come separately in a Pokemon Direct.

      • There is a Direct in January for sure

    • ShinyXatu

      I’ve already found a flaw, Nintendo would call it “Nintendo Direct 1.3.2018” if it were real, assuming they don’t change their ways for no reason. So…consider this an opportunity to predict what will happen in January’s Direct.

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      Damn peeps are desperate for this January direct already :p

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Pls be real even though it probably isn’t

    • Daedardus

      Lol. Way too soon for them to announce it even.

    • LunaMoon

      I know it’s fake but here are my predictions for a January 2018 Direct anyhow;
      – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC Pack/Mario Kart 9 (either is great)
      – Yoshi’s Yarn Adventures (Yoshi Switch)
      – Metroid 4
      – Super Smash Bros S
      – Kirby and the Acid Balloons
      – Xenoblade: The Actual Game (no more chronicles)
      – Animal Crossing: Town Master
      – Free downloadable Zelda BOTW DLC; cutscenes showing post-Ganon life (free or paid)
      – Nintendo Musical (use characters to make a musical)

      • Totem Shiny Lurantis

        – Kirby and the Acid Balloons
        – Xenoblade: The Actual Game (no more chronicles)

        Gurrrrl you don’t need any more acid after these predictions

        • LunaMoon

          I have no heck of an idea for Kirby and Xenoblade so I made some bad, bad, WIT titles for them. Just think of them as “Kirby Switch” and Xenobalde Switch.

          • Daedardus

            They just released a new XC. They have DLC to reveal. You think they’ll announce a new game?

          • LunaMoon

            They did with Sun and Moon and Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

          • Daedardus

            Huh what? No they didn’t.

          • LunaMoon

            I mean they released it fairly soon after SM.

          • Daedardus

            But that was after they were done with the previous games and it was only an enhanced remake, they are still marketing $30 DLC for XC2, they’re not going to cannibalise on that.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            Only Fighting games and Pokemon pull that BS.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            We’ve already got a Kirby game coming, and Xenoblade Chronicles is the name of the franchise.

          • LunaMoon

            I know I just randomly guessed a Kirby game name for it.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            It’s called Kirby: Star Allies

      • Daedardus

        – Not happening
        – Likely
        – Maybe
        – Not sure
        – Lolwat?
        – Nope
        – Could see AC, but not that title
        – Hahahahahaha
        – Is this a joke?

        • LunaMoon

          Nah, I mean there was Wii Music, Wii Party, Wii Party U, I’m sure a Switch Musical of sorts would happen. Plus, there must be something MK will happen next year, a new game, DLC, or reveal/announce of a new game.

          • Daedardus

            Bombed, ‘bombed’, also bombed and it was this what put a dent in the Wii U marketing campaign. They’re not going to repeat that.

  • Finally back!

    I saw Ferdinand yesterday and seeing Star wars in a bit for my Birthday, other news I got Super Mario 3d maker and already have finished World 1 of my idea for a Mario game.

    Also want to talk about Ferdiand a bit
    I thought it was a great movie, for a book that’s about 10 pages it was very well done. I only didn’t like the a$$hole Horses, so annoying

    • Daedardus

      Darth Vader is Luke’s father, Luke and Leia are twins, Han Solo loved Leia, Emporer Palpatine was a Sith lord. There, enough spoilers already for you.

      • LunaMoon

        Don’t forget Han Solo dies.

      • But Darth Jar-Jar?

  • LunaMoon

    For Super Smash Bros. on the Switch, I have some ideas for which characters should be in it:
    – Decidueye/Incineroar/Primarina (any one of these is fine)
    – Marshadow
    – Callie/Marie
    – Marina/Pearl
    – Arms Characters
    – Opera Rabbid
    – Cappy
    – Tiara
    – Broodals
    – Madame Broodal
    – Link (BOTW)
    – Zelda (BOTW)
    – Urbosa
    – Mipha
    – Revali
    – Daruk
    – Calamity Ganon (sized down to be able to be usable)

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      > Primarina isn’t happening. Decidueye may happen due to popularity, Incineroar may happen due to not being in Pokken and being a fighter
      > Marshadow may happen but won’t if any other Pokemon from Gen 7 does.
      > The Squid Sisters seem more likely, but Off the Hook don’t IMO. More likely we’ll just get an Inkling.
      > We’re probably getting at least one or two ARMS characters considering it’s already a fighting game
      > How could a hat and a tiara fight? If anything they’d be present as assist trophies which can possess your foes or on a skin for Mario and Peach but they’re not going to be individual fighters.
      > The Broodals probably aren’t getting on over more iconic Mario characters, especially considering how many Mario characters we already have.
      > These will just be skins for Zelda and Link, they’re not as different as Toon or Young Link to justify their inclusion.
      > I can see one or two Champions getting in but not all 4 tbh. If all 4 did tho that’d be cool because God knows LoZ needs more reps
      > Not before Ridley he ain’t

      • LunaMoon

        IMO I think all 4 should appear, because honestly it wouldn’t be fair. All 4 are equally strong and shouldn’t be limited. Although IMO fi they had to choose two it should be Urbosa and Mipha.

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Let’s not add too many Zelda characters, especially if they’re all from one game

      • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

        Deci could also because we’ve had a final evolution for fire and water but lack a grass representative

    • Too many characters that aren’t necessary

      Get Marina in there though I wanna fuckup some nerds with my octowife

    • Also cappy? Wtf are you on

      • Totem Shiny Lurantis

        Acid Balloons keep up Star

      • EarthenWarrior

        Meth

        • Totem Shiny Lurantis

          Fehth

      • LunaMoon

        I dunno they could make him as a skin for Mario or something or an item.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      – I find mars to be more likely as a pokeball monster, and the starters are all quite likely except Prima, not popular enough and the body type is weird

      – Do the squid sisters even fight lol, if so then they would be good but only one or two tho

      – ARMS characters are good but not for me 🙁

      – I don’t think they would bring a character from a spin off, especially this boss, fits more as a boss in some sub mode

      – Lol cappy and tiara, sure thing

      – Broodals as assist trophies, but lol they’re just bosses nothing special

      – BOTW outfits would be cool ngl

      – I really don’t see BOTW characters in Smash, and calamity ganon can work as a final smash

      • LunaMoon

        How can you NOT see them in Smash? Honestly would be a bit offensive to them if they or any BOTW characters weren’t added to Smash tbh.

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Lol how that’d be offensive, I just don’t think they fit imo 😡

          • LunaMoon

            Ah, so I guess the 2nd DLC pack cutscenes were utterly useless then?

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Useless for what? That doesn’t make them more likely to appear on Smash. I can list a number of characters who got more attention but still aren’t in smash

    • I just want Joker from Persona 5

    • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

      Marshadow.. just…YES

  • Totem Shiny Lurantis

    Counting only the major directs (meaning aired in multiple countries and shieeet)

    January 2012
    N/A – Got one on Feb 22nd focusing on the 3DS

    January 2013

    8th-Pokemon Direct (XY Reveal)
    23rd-Wii U Direct

    January 2014
    N/A – S. Korea got its own 3DS centred Direct tho on the 17th

    January 2015
    14th-Wii U and 3DS direct, reveal of the New 3DS

    January 2016
    N/A-Got the 20th Anniversary of Pokemon Direct on Feb 26th, where SuMo was revealed

    January 2017
    12th-Nintendo Switch Direct, revealing the console and some games for it
    18th-Fire Emblem Direct

    So basically no guarantee of a Direct but if we do get one it seems likely it’d be halfway through

    • Daedardus

      Don’t forget the leaked EA slides.

      • Totem Shiny Lurantis

        Ooh forgot those, so we’re probably getting one but no clue when because it varies a bit. I’d wager on the earlier side with the leaks tho

        • Daedardus

          I’d guess two weeks in after the holidays. People need to return to work too, they’re not going to do one next week since half of Nintendo isn’t at work.

      • LunaMoon

        Did you have to pay to be able to watch the EA slides?

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Starting from 2015 they were given more important stuff to show so if we’re getting one I’m expecting something big like Smash port or FE Switch :0

    • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

      Wait what for 2017

  • LunaMoon

    What the heck is the right circle pad for? It’s the appendix of the New consoles.

    • Daedardus

      Monster Hunter?

    • Kid Icarus

      Oh wait

      • LunaMoon

        Ah so it’s for two games I don’t even play. What a useful feature.

        • No the joke was that Kid Icarus needed that second control stick but it didn’t update to use it

          Xenoblade and Majoras Mask 3D use it tho

        • Totem Shiny Lurantis

          ‘I don’t personally use it so it doesn’t work’

          • LunaMoon

            TBF it’s Nintendo’s fault for making a button that only works on such a limited amount of games, it’s not exactly my fault I thought that it didn’t have a use, its usage is really limited.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            It’s not anyone’s fault lol. You just don’t play the games it works with lol

          • LunaMoon

            Well they could’ve at least come with a list of games it works with, it makes sense to do that.

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      Xenoblade Chronicles 3D
      Super Smash Bros for 3DS

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Some games use it. And youtube

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      You forgot Shadow the hedgehog and a MLP character smh

    • LunaMoon

      Young Link as in 17 year old Link from BOTW, or Young Link as in Link as a child?

  • The Butter Grinch

    ROUMOR
    In the next Zelda game, Link will have his Elf hat back. The hat will become sentient and get the name Hatty. Link will be able to throw Hatty and posses them, giving Link control of them. You’ll recognise things controlled by Link easily, they’ll have Link’s elf ears as well as Hatty on their head. This joke sucks.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Yet you posted it anyways 👁️‍🗨️👁️‍🗨️

      • The Butter Grinch

        I’m too bored

    • But that already happened with Minish Cap 😉

  • The Butter Grinch

    How come it’s not a problem when I read the comics but every time I watch Teen Titans and someone calls Beast Boy Garfield I laugh out loud?

  • ShinyXatu

    So I finished watching Black Mirror Season 4 this morning and the show remains, without a doubt, one of my favorite of all time. I would be satisfied if we just got the first episode, USS Callister, and nothing else since it’s basically a movie on its own. I STRONGLY urge all of you to watch the show on Netflix if you haven’t already because it’s glorious.

    • I’ve also seen it. I am shocked and questioning life and reality 😱
      Some episodes like USS Callister and San Junipero deserve a movie indeed.
      I am sure the series will inspire many SciFi movies and other series.

      • ShinyXatu

        Speaking of inspiration, there’s another Sci-fi movie on Netflix which feels just like a Black Mirror episode called OtherLife which I really enjoyed. It’s not quite as good but the idea was also really interesting and you should watch it!

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Yeah tbh I only watched two but oh boy if they were fantastic, I should really give this series a try :0

  • Totem Shiny Lurantis

    So, what’s everyone’s plans for today/tomorrow? Me and my friends are going to see some fireworks after a meal because we couldn’t find anyone’s house to party in :<

    • EarthenWarrior

      my delinquent cousin and furry cousin are coming over for a dinner party along with my aunt

      • Totem Shiny Lurantis

        The delinquent, the furry, and the furious

        Sounds like a regular sitcom to me

        • The Butter Grinch

          Coming up next: It’s The Earthens!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Does it star Vin Diesel?

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            Earvin Diesel

        • EarthenWarrior

          no it’s serious the kid’s got major problems, causes major problems in school and flat out refused to go in for 2 semesters and even tried committing suicide via metal master sword replica

          it’s because his deadbeat asshole of a father was divorced

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Can’t decide which is worse

        • EarthenWarrior

          T_T how do you think i feel

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Not very good i suppose

    • I’m goona play Bring me to Life at the exact time so it turns 2018 at the first WAKE ME UP

      • Totem Shiny Lurantis

        Me but I’m gonna sync it up to when I open my university offers and exam results

      • Gonna watch Shrek so it syncs up and my first words are “Get out of my Swamp!”

    • The Butter Grinch

      Stay in home
      Do homework
      Be sick

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Play HGSS,I’m so fucking slow in that game lol

      • Monkeyfuzz

        How long you been playing it?

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          5 hours but I play like 30 to hour per day and I barely advancing :p

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Is it your first playthrough of it? I think taking your time is fine as long as you are enjoying it.

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Nah is my third, and yeah I’m enjoying it, is one of my fav Pkm games after all :0

    • Gamer Dragon07

      Currently sr for a shiny Palkia, I’m already over 2400 sr so I’m not very lucky with this hunt

    • LunaMoon

      Shiny hatching for a shiny Oricorio.

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      I don’t think people realise I’m talking about new years. Which is today for people in Europe and other timezones and tomorrow for the rest of you 😡

      • The Butter Grinch

        oh yeah
        I didn’t realise it’s past midnight
        so
        it’s New Years

  • Monkeyfuzz
    • EarthenWarrior

      I prefer the red

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      Ayyyyy Moon Ball

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Niiice I got one back in Y from a friends safari

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Thanks. I never had much luck with shiny ‘mon from Friend Safaris, maybe because nobody stayed online much.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Yeah if you wanted to get that last slot it’s a real pain in the ass. Otherwise it’s an easy thing to shiny hunt in as long as you have something else to do like watching tv

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Oh I got the last slots, it’s just I think there was a higher chance of a shiny if the person whose safari it was was online when you were in there.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I don’t think them being on has anything to do with the shiny ratio. It doesn’t matter. You just weren’t trying hard enough haha

  • EarthenWarrior

    since i been absent most of the day
    My Smash Newcomer list

    Shovel Knight (The Blue Burrower should’ve gotten in last time)
    Daruk (Unlikely)
    Magnus from Kid Icarus (Assist Trophy turn fighter)
    King K. Rool (Extremely unlikely)
    Paper Mario (a man can dream)
    Banjo Kazooie (an interview said it wasn’t impossible)
    i REALLY don’t like putting any non super popular pokemon in smash unless they’re universally accepted (but if i could do any 3 regular pokemon Rhyperior, Heracross, Midnight Lycanroc)

    • The Butter Grinch

      Król (pronaunced Krool) means King in Polish. So for me King K.Rool sounds like “King King”

    • Banjo Kazooie is a must have. You can tell they wanted them and started programming but just changed them to duckhunt

  • Totem Shiny Lurantis

    Why didn’t she come back for RR? GOAT villain right here

        You’ve discovered more and more about yourself, and whilst you’ve appeared jaded at times I think people have realised just how much you care. Again, like Kurusu, you’ve also became much more confident in your online presence and it makes me proud how you’ve grown for the better as a whole

      Hi

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Bit of Black Mirror ahhhh lets see what all the fuss is about

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I’ve heard some pretty dark and terrible things about Black Mirror. Be ready to have your soul be eaten by the devil

    • ShinyXatu

      It’s literally my favorite show ever, so I think you’ll enjoy it at least a little bit. Make sure you watch all of them.

    • Ultron

      Saw the first episode and thought it was disgusting. Not something I’m really interested in watching, though I understand each episode is stand alone.

  • EarthenWarrior

    ughhhhh my aunt tried the VR…….the cringe…….i should’ve filmed it

  • ShinyXatu

    After a seemingly endless saga I’ve FINALLY ordered that Apple Watch, and it seems to have worked this time. All I had to do was not use my card at all because it’s useless apparently! As I said before, I’m very excited about this, although I do have to wait until Jan. 4 to start using it as opposed to New Year’s Day. However, 2018 is still 2018! I really wish I could add a dynamic Pokémon watch face but not yet…the kaleidoscope will have to do.

    • Daedardus

      Ordering without using a credit card? They call that stealing over here. 😉

  • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

    Nnnnnnnnnnnnaaaaaaaaaaaaani

  • LunaMoon

    I just got myself a shiny Oricorio! OMG The Japanese Oricorio looks beautiful as a shiny.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Nice, did you breed it?

      • LunaMoon

        Yup I shiny hatched it! I had this feeling I’d get it today and I did!

        • Monkeyfuzz

          What Ball and nature is it? How long did it take? Do you plan on keeping it in the same style?

          • LunaMoon

            Its a Calm nature with a “Sturdy Body” characteristic. It took about today, I don’t remember if I also did it yesterday but definitely today. I’m prettyy sure ys, as although I love the fire style, I’d prefer to stay in one.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I honestly think my UM team may be my favorite team I’ve had to date. Between them all just looking cool and also being pretty fun to use I’m just not sure there’s many other Pokemon in my prior team lines ups that could be more cool for me.Gen 7 was really a gen of very well designed Pokemon as far as looks are considered. Some of the new Pokemon stats are weird, but all of them have some kind of value. I think gen 7 was a pretty decent success.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      What’s your team?

    Well I bought a new game for switch! It went down to 39.99 so I couldn’t resist it! Loved the first one so I am excited to finally play this! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/45c380b005f67838ef41f7d9b0658b9f1f115aae67a93011574a94f38a478305.jpg

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Nice, I have wanted to play this but I don’t have any consoles it’s on.

      • Josh Omega

        It’s gameplay is already better than xenoverse one lol so I definitely recommend it!

  • You are all cute girls

  • Josh Omega
    • Monkeyfuzz

      Is that even your final form?

      • Josh Omega

        No this isn’t my final form lol

  • Shady
    • LunaMoon

      What game is that?

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      That wouldn’t be realistic with some of the sizes we have in the series. Upscale a little bit more for some? (looking at you Wailord) Sure, but idk if actual size will ever be do able for them.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So idk how familiar you guys are with the Plus and Minus rumor that came out 3ish years ago. Back then I would have said the rumor was ridiculous and silly. It certainly has some cool parts, but back in 2014 it didn’t seem realistic. Fast forward to 2017(well….the end of 2017 anyway lol) It has a LOT of things that seem quite suspicious. Between basically calling the main features of how the Switch works and and bringing up rumors we are currently discussing after fresh sources brought them up it really does seem like this rumor may have some kind of possible credibility Hell we even have a newer source (that I believe is sincere) also mentioning about how the new story will be darker than usual and a source stating the battle system will be different. The only thing I can’t see happening in the next games is the legendary Pokemon being so similar to Solgaleo and Lunala. So maybe they were just prototypes and are changed now? Other than that everything else basically checks out. It’s all VERY interesting to read and VERY suspicious. Could we really have had a leak from THAT far in advance??? It all seems so weird, but the pieces look like they at least sort of match. It’s worth checking out at least and keeping an eye on. I will say tho if this ends up being in any way true then the 2018 release is very possible indeed. That would mean that GF has been making a game for the Switch for a VERY long time. That all said read it for yourselves and as always keep a weather eye on reality. They may have just gotten very VERY lucky haha Here’s the link if you guys want to read it. https://mynintendonews.com/2014/01/06/next-gen-pokemon-games-called-plus-and-minus/

    • LunaMoon

      Gah so long so confusing

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        My post or the rumor itself? Sorry if it’s my post. Just had a lot to say about it. Read the rumor first I guess and then return here a read what I said. Prolly should have said that if that’s the problem so muh bad lol

        • LunaMoon

          Oh no it’s fine.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Yesterday I did my newcomer wishlist and if Heracross joined the fray

    His playstyle is mobility with powerful attacks

    Neutral: Fury Attack: a combo of horn thrusts
    Side B: Megahorn: Dives straightforward and skewers opponents
    Up B: Seismic Toss: Rises straight and smashes the opponent down
    Down B: Reversal: a powerful counterattack that does more damage the higher %

    Final Smash: Mega Megahorn!: Upon activation the trapped opponents are stuck in an animation of Heracross Mega Evolving then using its mighty horn they are lifted and flung over the earth with its mighty strength

    And whenever it grabs an opponent they are balancing on his horn while he is on all fours

  • LunaMoon

    So what’s everyone’s favourite Oricorio shiny? Mine is:
    1) Sensu/Japanese (the current shiny I own)
    2) Tango/Spanish (the other one I badly want)
    3) Hula/Polynesian (the one that looks like it lost half of its feathers)
    4) Cheerleader/American (the one that looks like it came out from High School Musical)

    • Armaggedon16

      None

      • LunaMoon

        Denied!

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      It’s flamenco not tango btw. 2 different dances. Either way it’s my favorite of the four. Then the Sensu form. You gonna try and get all of them or are you just happy with being able to switch the form for whatever you want whenever?

      • LunaMoon

        I think I might switch, but i really only like the Sensu and Flamenco styles.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      1. Baille
      2. Sensu
      3. Pa’u
      4. Pom-Pom

      Non-shiny I swap 1+2.

      • LunaMoon

        Baille is the Flamenco bird right?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          The red one yes.

    • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

      You realize we get you have it right?

      • LunaMoon

        Right but I’m asking a question.

  • Doctah Govnah

    Hey pals. I guess a direct is coming sooner then we think. Amazon just uploaded 18 listings for games
    https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=as_li_ss_tl?&fst=as:off&rh=n:496994,n:!11846801,n:16227128011&bbn=496994&sort=price-desc-rank&ie=UTF8&qid=1514730863&linkCode=sl2&tag=myamiibonewsc-20&linkId=06f583decb924755739d0ff13847235e

    • LunaMoon

      *crosses fingers for Mario Kart 9, SSB5, BOTW DLC3, Mario Party 11/Switch, Hotel Mario 2: Broodal Boogalo*

      • Why Mario Kart 9? Mario Kart 8D is great already

        • LunaMoon

          Well I want some sort of new mario game. A new Paper Mario,a new Mario Party, anything! I know some will say both series are ‘ruined’, but IMO Colour Splash was a fun game, and the 3DS MP games were decent enough, plus since Nintendo did the great stuff for Zelda and Mario, I’m sure they’ll be able to do the same great stuff for Paper Mario and/or Party.

          • Ok but…. they’re gonna make more Mario games if they make sense. You don’t need to worry about that

          • LunaMoon

            I know but I just want some kind of Mario game this year, as I’m mostly a Mario fan.

          • You just got Odyssey

            Chilllllll

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Too soon for Mario Kart 9 tho

        • LunaMoon

          I mean they could at least make DLC for new tracks.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Pretty sure they already said there’s not gonna be anymore dlc for kart 8. I could be wrong tho. they could even reverse that decision too (if I’m even right)

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Hmmm I don’t see Pokemon on that list. Not even a place holder like Metroid has. That’s odd. You’d think they’d capitalize on its existence even if it doesn’t come out for some time.

      • Daedardus

        It’s Switch game 27.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          I’m sure it is bud…..*rolls eyes*

      • Doctah Govnah

        they all labeled switch game tho. they usually do a bulk release so when the titles are revealed its simple edit

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Not saying it’s a hard change. I’m just saying that since they have Metroid marked clearly I wonder why they chose not to do so for Pokemon. Not saying it’s suspicious or anything. Just that it’s weird they wouldn’t want to have the place holder there in general.

          • Because Metroid 4 was already revealed

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Not by much more tho. All it got more was a title card. Regardless of whether we got a name for the Pokemon game they still could have very well shown a title card reading “Pokemon Switch” and then a little thing on the bottom saying not final name or somersetting. It;s not like we have an actual trailer for Metroid They’re essentially in the same boat. Either way I guess it’s not much of a big deal. Just thought it was odd Amazon wouldn’t want to make a specific page for it is all.

    • ShinyXatu

      I KNEW IT
      We are getting a Direct on Wednesday, mark my words.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      That’s a lot of games, I’m hyped :0

    • LunaMoon

      I hope it’s not just small third-party games.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    The one sad thing about a direct now is that Pokemon once again won’t be part of it in all likelihood. They haven’ revealed Zeraora yet to they’re not gonna show off Pokemon Switch yet. The only thing I could see them focusing on Pokemon wise in normal a direct (rather than just a special direct for Pokemon) is Pokemon Switch. They won’t bother showing off Zeraora in a direct. It’s not big enough and they can easily just do it in a YT video. Zeraora needs to get out of the way so they can start talking about Pokemon Switch hahaha

    • Zeaora isn’t getting in the way of Pokémon Switch

      Zeaora is holding time over for Pokémon Switch

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        NO it’s in the way I want muh HD Pokemon!!! I’m mostly kidding, but yeah…..even if the game doesn’t come out until 2019 I still kind of want Zeraora to be revealed soon. Idk why it’s just bugging me. At the very least it can settle things a bit and it’d be one less thing to worry about.

        • I personally don’t give a sh*t about Zeaora on account that it is a boring design and a boring type

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Same. Not that I hate it, but I could move on from it very quickly. That’s why I’m a little impatient for Switch news haha

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Potentially unpopular opinion, there are too many Legendaries.

    • More unpopular opinion

      Legendary Pokémon make more sense as just rare Pokémon that ancient people made up legends about

      • LunaMoon

        More unpopular opinions.

        Diancie is an amazing Mythical Pokémon and has a beautiful Mega evo.

        • That’s not unpopular

          • LunaMoon

            I just found a ton of people who consider it meh.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            There’s tons of people who find every Pokemon meh

            On average, Diancie has positive reception.

          • LunaMoon

            Good.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        I think it depends how much lore is built around them. But most seem to be considered one of a kind so idk.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Idk if that’s an unpopular opinon. I think it’s a very reasonable opinion.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        There’s just so many now, I like them but I can’t say I use them much, doesn’t help many are banned in competitions/battle areas. I prefer things I can breed and raise earlier on, that I can actually journey with.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Plus what’s the point of them being legendary if they’re in almost EVERY game AND there so many of them. It’s become a cool club of just a few to a crazy amount where more than half of them get forgotten.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Phione should evolve into Manaphy and just be a rare event breedable, otherwise I’m not sure why Phione exists. I do remember all Legendaries most of the time, I just don’t really use them.

    • LunaMoon

      ~50-60% of Gen 5 legendaries/mythicals are useless, like the orus trio and the Musketeers.

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Define useless

        • LunaMoon

          They’re kinda filler Pokemon, I mean they’re fairly forgettable after Gen 5. Like who would remember the four Musketeer Pokemon if asked about?

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            No they aren’t. They serve good purpose for the lore and worldbuilding of the region, and they have cool events as well and are not just a legendary trio from a previous game copy and pasted, like gen 6 fe

          • LunaMoon

            The Musketeer Pokemon are not too interesting design wise though, I mean especially that fat grey one, who’d prefer that over say Ho-Oh, or even Lunala.

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            They’re memorable to other people tho

          • LunaMoon

            Sure but overall they’re not as memorable as say the Time-Space continum trio, the land-sky-sea trio or even the Sun-Moon-Eclipse trio.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            Because those are box legends. They’re actually part of the main plot and are important to the story lol

            Also, shorter names are Creation trio, Weather trio, and Light/Cosmic trio

          • LunaMoon

            Having a trio named “Creation” in a game heavily focused on evolution is pretty weird.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis
          • Ultron

            Not really. Things have to be created before they can evolve. Plus the whole plot of Sinnoh is about creating something new

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It refers to the creation of the universe, not creationism.

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            That’s so subjective tho, and these are box legends so

          • LunaMoon

            so

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            So of course they are going to be more memorable

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            So they’re meant to be more iconic because the marketing is heavily on their fictional shoulders

          • LunaMoon

            Meh you’re right.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Terrakion reminds me of Spike from Tom&Jerry and that’s how I remember it. Also it has a unique typing.

          • LunaMoon

            Isn’t it Ground-Fighting?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Rock/Fighting.

          • LunaMoon

            And I guess Verizion is Grass-Fighting and the blue guy is Water or Ice-Fighting right?

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            Virizion – Grass
            Cobalion – Steel
            Terrakion – Rock
            Keldeo – Water
            All share a secondary Fighting type and the move Sacred Sword

          • LunaMoon

            Oh ok. Well I was partly right, I remembered Keldeo being water and Virizion not being grass would’ve been weird.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        The genies are used alot in competitive, especially Landorus. The Musketeers are less used.

        • LunaMoon

          Yes, but they really made too many mythical Pokemon in Gen 5, 1-3 is fine, 6+ is not. That makes the “Mythical” title not really an exclusive title.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            There are 4 Mythicals, Victini, Meloetta, Keldeo and Genesect.

          • LunaMoon

            Well then there are too many Legendaries introduced in Gen 5.

      • Totem Shiny Lurantis

        They’re well designed and unlike most other legendaries can be used during your playthrough… Which you’d of known if you’d actually played the games :p

        • LunaMoon

          No need to rudely snap at me.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            It’s an explanation followed by a joke. 5Gs

          • LunaMoon

            Sure but I actually did play a bit. I just lost the interest and the game.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            You got to like the third gym. You wouldn’t even of seen the legends lol

          • LunaMoon

            TECHNICALLY, I saw the legendaries at the opening title.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            You didn’t see them in game, which is where your judgement should reside. Unlike most modern games, you can use most of Unova’s legendaries before the Champion. Hence they’re far from useless.

          • LunaMoon

            You could also use the mascot legendaries in the Elite 4 for X/Y though.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            That doesn’t make the Unova legends useless lol.

          • LunaMoon

            I know.

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            Then why bring up that point?

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Yeah, that’s specially bad in Gen 4 and 7, where gen 4 had like 15-20 percent legendaries and 7 where it had a lot of UBs compared to normal Pkm

      • LunaMoon

        Oh yeah, there was
        Shaymin, Giratina, Dialga, Palkia, Darkrai, Arceus, Cresselia.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Gen 7 is slightly more understandable considering UBs are a new concept.

  • ShinyXatu

    So everyone, I’m going to say that it’s now guaranteed that we’ll get a new Nintendo Direct this week after this Amazon placeholder debacle. They’ll probably drop a tweet tomorrow saying “HAPPY NEW YEAR! Join us on Wednesday…” and set the date and time. I feel like this is going to be one fantastic event if it truly goes down this way.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Seems likely. It’s been a little while since we got a direct and they’ll need to outline at least the first part of the year as early as possible.

      • ShinyXatu

        The last one was on September 13, which feels like ages ago to me. I’m happy that we won’t have to wait too long past the new year to get a new refresher of things to look forward to!

        • Totem Shiny Lurantis

          Next Nintendo Direct is in February and it’s a Digimon direct ʕっ•ᴥ•ʔっ

    • LunaMoon

      I think they should make the Gen 8 Grass-type based off that large and long creepy centipede.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        No centipedes…..they’re really REALLY gross……….

        • LunaMoon

          Or they should make it extremely detailed on one of those gigantic spiders from the Coniferous and have it feast on all other Grass starters.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            So you just want a real gross grass starter then huh? lol

          • LunaMoon

            I’m just joking of course I don’t want it.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        We already have Scolipede based on this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scolopendra_gigantea

        I guess we could have something based on the Arthropleura but I don’t think as a starter since it’d have to be Grass/Bug probably.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      what’s Primarina? It’s too small and I can’t see it.

      • it is something with spikes

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Not sure that makes sense….but ok…

      • LunaMoon

        Primarina should’ve just been a siren.

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      Fire and Grass have basis, but the Water one is far too random tbh. If the weapons were really part of a pattern, they’d be better incorporated into the designs and probably be used as weapons.

      • they have a point but yeah Grass types also have weapons: leaf, vines, arrows, spike shields, …

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Primarina is kinda farfetched imo, and Feraligator too. But the others kinda fit

    • ShinyXatu

      Wow, thanks for the insight articuno Pokemon art Tumblr gaming Kanto 90s Instagram photo video anime.

      • lol I found it while searching chinese zodiac fire starters. but I found it a curious theory

    • belmad

      Weapon is reaching. Water starters are most likely based on creatures that live both on ground and water. That’s why we haven’t seen a horse or fish water starter.

    • Armaggedon16

      I believe in none of them.
      The fire one sorta has basis, but Fenniken isn’t really a dog.
      Grass maybe, but sinvy line is a snake, treecko line is gecko,and turtwig lines are turtles mainly.
      Water is just pure bs

    • Ultron

      Nah. Typhlosion and Delphox don’t fit unless we’re stretching it. I also seriously hope Gamefreak doesn’t limit themselves to such stupid patterns and instead just focuses on making good pokemon.

  • Totem Shiny Lurantis

    Fun fact: every Pokemon game besides the original Red and Green, Fire Red and Leaf Green, and Black and White 2, were released initially in Autumn.

    (Blue came out the same year in Autumn as RG, but because it’s a third version Blue probably didn’t effect RG’s release date at all (if it was even being made when RG were released, because it’s less of a third version and more of a third game in a trio), whilst Emerald came out the same year in Autumn as FRLG. FRLG may of been delayed from Autumn of 2003 but it could’ve just been their intent)

  • Totem Shiny Lurantis

    Does anyone else wonder how GameFreak would handle a reveal over the course of more than one year, like a good number of game companies do? I know the fanbase would be barely able to cope lol

    • Armaggedon16

      I remember the fanbase went crazy when the initial Announcement of oras and usum didn’t have a trailer. So really if the new game is different Enough maybee we could have small trailers every month or so, otherwise the whole fanbase will go nuts

      • Totem Shiny Lurantis

        TBF ORAS and USUM didn’t have the best reveals but like… I don’t think this fanbase realises how spoilt it is for pre-release compared to others lol

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Release a few Pokemon a month, maybe a smidge of gameplay to placate us.

    • LunaMoon

      Have a Pokemon Advent Calendar sometime in the middle of the year where they reveal one Pokemon for 12 days.

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      Best approach would be bi or trimonthly large reveals (which either narrows down the months of content to 6 or 4) with minor reveals dotted inbetween

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I feel like revealing new info every month would be a little overwhelming and spoil the game a little too much, especially if it’s in the course of over a year, so I’m hoping for medium sized trailers every three months and adding a few more minor trailers the close it gets to release.

    • Ultron

      As they currently operate, they couldn’t. They haven’t put enough content into these past 2 generations to draw it out for so long. They barely make it on the pre-release marketing schedules as is. (I’d even argue that they don’t given how abysmal hype was for USUM)

    • Let’s see what happens in the January’s Nintendo Direct
      I think they will reveal the title names and we’ll have to wait until before summer to see the first images

      • Ultron

        I think that’s way too soon to be getting any info about the games. They need to reveal zerora or whatever first

        • The Butter Grinch

          Zeraora will probably just be in the movie with one Gen 8 mythical

          • Totem Shiny Lurantis

            Zeraora probably would’ve been revealed by now if there was another surprise Pokemon in the movie. Right now, it seems it’ll be Lugia as the first reveal and Zeraora as the surprise.

          • Ultron

            I really hope lugia isn’t in the movie. That bloated sea bird has gotten enough attention

          • Ultron

            They still have to reveal it officially.

        • I have a feeling it will be revealed in next movie

    • The Butter Grinch

      I expect something like this:
      January Direct:
      Pokemon [Blank] and [Blank] coming to Nintendo Switch 2019
      Beggining of Summer Pokemon Direct:
      Region, starter, protagonist, box legend and battle system reveals
      The rest of 2018:
      Trailers showing more and more
      Very Beggining of 2019:
      One Final Trailer
      Early 2019:
      The release

      • LunaMoon

        Lets hope.

      • Totem Shiny Lurantis

        I really hope it comes/see it coming in 2019

      • Rockcrawdaunt

        If I recall correctly, we got the Sun and Moon starters revealed in a trailer in August right?

        • Rockcrawdaunt

          So based on that reveal and a November release date (was that the November of the next year? I can’t remember.), when would we expect the same things? (I know they don’t always match this timeline but its still nice to think about.)

  • LunaMoon

    I hope for Gen 8 it’s not based off a tiny region like Gen 5 and 7 were, they really should return to actual countries instead of “Ooh! Hawaii!’ or “Ooh! New York City!”. They need to expand the cultural influence to southeast Asia or Eastern europe.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      The regions aren’t small though.

      • LunaMoon

        Sure but I’d like it if they use more different cultures. Currently only 3 areas have been used; Japan, the U.S and France.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          That’s because Gen 1-4 were based on Japan. By all means expand into different real life culture bases, they have already done this with Pokemon themselves.

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      Alola and Unova were based on US states. Which are pretty darn big.

      • LunaMoon

        Hawaii is relatively small, compared to majority of Europe, Asia, Americas and even Japan. Unova was mostly based off of New York the city, and I’m not American, but I do know New York City isn’t really a state.

        • Totem Shiny Lurantis

          Unova is based on NYS with aspects of New Jersey, and Virbank City even draws inspiration from Burbank in California. The reason NYC is so prevalent in its design is that NYC is super iconic, especially to those from without NY state.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      The 4 first regions weren’t specially based on huge regions exactly, Kanto for example is based on a kinda small region in japan (which is not much bigger than Hawaii)

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      Also, only one region was based on a country lol. And it was only the Northern part of that country.


    • The size of the area it’s based on isn’t representative of the in game region

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ughhhhhhh note to viewers Hawlucha has a very low SOS rate, I spent 36 minuets hunting one and an hour and a half and it only called 8-14

    Honed Claws and eventually brought down my entire hunting party aka Marowak, Scyther and Pangoro until I was left only with Aerodactyl and Pressure it into struggling

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      Get a Pokemon with Unnerve, increases call rate but doesn’t lower PP like Pressure.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Good to know I was either hunting for Hawlucha or Bagon

        • Totem Shiny Lurantis

          There’s strategies for making it so you don’t have to worry about PP but you’d have to get a Leppa Berry onto the target and have Skill Swap + Harvest but I’m too lazy for that :p

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I have Exeggcute set up for that.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Yo that sounds perfect dude can you breed me one?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yeah, I need to find it in my bank, it will be in Dream Ball.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It’s ready, you got any Apricorn or Beast Ball ‘mon you can trade for it?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        And Intimidate I think.

    • LunaMoon

      Just threaten him with a Tauros.

  • The Butter Grinch

    Odyssey is so amazing that if BotW is really even better I really won’t be able to contain myself

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Probably more a case of which game style you prefer.

    • ShinyXatu

      Definitely was for me. The most mind-blowing thing is that BotW feels so expansive yet so open for improvement. I can’t really say the same for Odyssey, which is sort of locked in place. Both were incredible though!

      • Doctah Govnah

        Odyssey was better to me

    • Ultron

      Currently I’d say I like BotW better. You can explore everything. Whereas in Mario there are still places limited by Mario’s jump. But there are definitely comparable aspects of Odyssey that are better than BotW. For example, power moons and the purple coins are way more satisfying to get than Korok seeds.

      In the end it comes down to what you prefer. I’m more of a Zelda fan so naturally BotW holds more meaning to me. Mario has always been something I play with friends so Odyssey is something that I both dislike and enjoy.

  • ShinyXatu

    Guys…GUYS!
    Amazon removed the listings.

  • ShinyXatu

    I just watched the last Nintendo Minute video of 2017 and it had some very suspicious moments. Krysta said one of her resolutions for 2018 was to play a long term game, and was talking about Animal Crossing and Stardew Valley as possibilities there. Also, they said that they’re taking a break for the first half of January…for all of the new Direct content to blow over perhaps?

    • Ultron

      Who da hell is Krysta

      • ShinyXatu

        She’s the woman host on the show.

        • Ultron

          Do you think she would know insider stuff though?

          • Doctah Govnah

            uh she works for nintendo? and most of there shows and pre recorded

          • Ultron

            But she’s just a spokesperson. Does working for Nintendo automatically mean they spill all their secrets to you?

          • Doctah Govnah

            but he never said she spill anything secrets tho?

          • Ultron

            I thought Xatu was implying that she was implying something when talking about wanting to play a new long term game. And if not, I’m not sure why it was important to mention that part at all. All he would have to say then is that the show is taking a break

    • Totem Shiny Lurantis

      She’s obviously talking about New Leaf: Switch guys

    • Doctah Govnah

      IT ALL COMES TOGETHER

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

    What are you most thankful for in terms of the Jungle this year?

    • Support on my art!!
      I try very hard and I’m very discouraged sometimes but seeing all the nice comments I get when I post my stuff on here it makes me so happy!

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Well thankful for the good moments I had here in the first half of this year, like I really needed that back then 😛

      ( btw never knew Shaymin could do that that’s pretty cool)

    • LunaMoon

        • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

          *places a rug on that rug*

    • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

      The fact that y’all don’t hate me

      And that cute shaymin

      I’m kinda glad how accepting everyone is

      Like you all accept I’m the best person here ♥

      No but in all seriousness nearly everyone’s so nice and stuff and I really appreciate that

    • Monkeyfuzz

      People actually talking to me and not hating all of my ideas and opinions.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So I started playing Metroid Samus Returns last night. Not too far in yet, but so far I’m enjoying it. Have never actually beaten a Metroid game so this should be good. It’s the last game in the line of games from older series from Nintendo I have set out to beat this year (sort of) The first game was a Zelda game, Then a Mario game. And now a Metroid game. Until this past year I don’t think I’ve ever actually beaten a Zelda or Marion game ever. Played them sure, but never fully beaten any. Now that’s not true as I’ve beaten both BOTW and Odyssey. Now I set out to beat Samus Returns so I can say I’ve beaten at least on game in Nintendo’s biggest 4 series.

    • Samus Returns is a great entry point to the series.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Yeah seems to be. I’ve played a little of Fusion and the original game when I was younger, but for some reason never really got into it. I like Samus and the world in general, but my tiny kid brain just couldn’t focus long enough for me to actually get through a game. Which really says something as the Metroid games are generally some of the short games in Nintendo’s arsenal. haha

  • https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=rHG-JO8gIGk

    This always makes me laugh so much

    “YOU STUPID EVOLVED PRICK”

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    *Gets morph ball bomb* *presumes to use it to blow everything up*

  • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

    Okay sorry if this sounds greedy to some but like
    I really really REALLY hope the water starter is something I love this gen…. I always claim I love water types but I rarely actually pick water starters. It feels really weird

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      What animal would you like to see as a water starter? inb4 dolphin………..

      • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

        Honestly? Either a Shrimp, Manatee, or Jellyfish… or maybe a cuttlefish

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Any of those could be really cool. I could see a Cuttlefish being part psychic

          • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

            I can see that
            Shrimp could be bug, or even fighting
            Jellyfish is my absolute favorite and it could go in like fifty different directions
            Manatee would just be adorable

          • Mantis Shrimp Starter! 😀

            It has way more than just Water/Fighting possibilities too if I may add

          • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

            Ayyyyyyyyyyyy 😀

          • Cause apparently they use some mechanism that paralyzes its prey so Water/Electric

            This one won’t happen, but they also can boil their prey so Water/Fire could work

          • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

            Oh I’m well aware of what they do

        • The Butter Grinch

          *all water starters have to be based on animals that can walk on ground as well as swim*

          • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

            Shrimps can do it
            And who’s to say Pokemon can’t take liberties? You realize what Garchomp is right?

          • The Butter Grinch

            yeah, but starters are diffrent

          • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

            Says who?

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          I need to get a move on with the second season. I’ve been slacking with keeping up. Have only gotten into a few episodes, but so far the second season is still as good as the first season.

          • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

            Imo there’s a quality drop but it’s definitely not bad

  • Deerlia

    Dear Nintendo,
    I’ve been (mostly) good all year, my new year’s resolution is to game with you for another prosperous year of fun!
    I had fun setting skysail and kicking it old school and new style with Mario across the world ( and beyond) in Super Mario Odyssey.
    I explored the vast land of Hyrule and took on a mighty quest to smite Calamity Ganon in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
    I Defeated the threat to Ferrum, the great and terrifying Shadow Mewtwo, and cleared the final championship Test in Pokken Tournament DX.
    I Gave the Splat to the Octolings, saved an oldtime Inkling friend, and freestyled the evil remixing leader in Splatoon 2.
    I Knocked out the malicious face of evil, Hedlok and bested the league in ARMS.

    Here’s to another good year of victories, accomplishments and fun on the Switch~

  • ShinyXatu

    I’d like to post this for no reason other than that it’s amusing.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Happy 2018 to everyone in Europe and Australia! Just want to wish you all the best in the new year and good luck in whatever you pursue as well as health.

  • Im writing my “games i played this year that were great” essay. I’m starting with BOTW but it’s becoming an essay within an essay.

    I don’t even mind. I love this game so much it deserves it

  • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

    If One’s justice sucks I’m eating cyanide

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I worry how the battle system will work with some characters.

      • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

        Agreed

  • Yay after about 50 attempts I beat it and got… Clouds and Wrentch things…. (._. )

    I just want a Yoshi Egg so I can have Yoshi…

  • Armaggedon16

    Since I’m bored. My best games i played this year list yeaa.

    1)Persona 5
    2)Horizon Zero Dawn
    3)Tales of Berseria
    4)Stella Glow
    5)Dragon Quest XI

    Sadly i don’t have a switch, otherwise zelda would be here for sure

    • UnburdenedLegume

      • Armaggedon16

        It’s reallyy good

        • UnburdenedLegume

          GOTY 2017

          • Armaggedon16

            No. Persona 5.

          • The Butter Grinch

            No. BotW.

          • Doctah Govnah

            did u even play it yet

          • The Butter Grinch


            no

          • Doctah Govnah

            so you have no say in it

          • The Butter Grinch

            But it got GotY

          • Doctah Govnah

            doenst mean it was his tho?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Cos Zelda is a bigger name than Horizon, doesnt mean it was better

          • Armaggedon16

            I don’t care about that though.

          • He’s right. It isn’t fair to say that until you play it…

            but I think you’ll feel the same as I do about it :3

          • Armaggedon16

            Maybe..if i had a switch.. I’m a huge zelda fan and love all of them (except majora and zelda II).. But like.. i don’t think any game will have as much of an emotional impact on me as persona 5.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Literally a Skyrim reskin but without the level up system. Still a very good game tho dont get me wrong

  • ShinyXatu

    So, it’s December 31 2017 and to say it’s been quite a year is a MASSIVE understatement. Ever since the Nintendo Switch Presentation 2017 on January 12, this beautiful piece of hardware has gripped onto our lives in ways we never thought possible. 135 hours of Breath of the Wild, 45 hours of Super Mario Odyssey and 40 hours of ARMS, amongst others, have made this year a joy to partake in. I’ll forever remember the feeling of picking up my Joy-Con Grip for the first time on March 4 and jumping right into Breath of the Wild, and look forward to sharing those raw emotions with game historians of the future. I know it’s an unpopular opinion but I actually enjoyed ARMS a whole lot more than Splatoon 2 (which was also a blast), and this makes me unbelievably excited because we all know there will be other brand-new IPs with the Nintendo charm in 2018 and beyond.

    This year has also been very tough for me because of my grandma passing away on April 26. Some of you may not know what it feels like to go through that situation but ever since then a little piece of my identity has been lost, likely forever, and it sucks. I know Nintendo doesn’t care about me specifically (although I’ve given them thousands of dollars over the years), but they could not have timed this new generation any better. When one door closes another opens, that’s what I believe now.

    I also graduated high school this year on June 9, which only happens once in a lifetime! Yet it was tough to really feel happy about it due to the aforementioned situation having a lasting toll on me. I remember this was one of the few times in recent memory that I can truly say I was happy after acknowledging all that I have endured.

    I don’t feel like writing too much more, but my main resolution for 2018 is to continue playing the Switch and being enthusiastic about games and technology in general! With all that has happened in 2017, I will try my best to radiate positivity in 2018 regardless of the circumstances of my life. And I’ll still be visiting PokeJungle each and every day 😛

  • The Butter Grinch

    Ya fellas still in 2017 while I am in 2018

  • Majora’s mask soundtrack is something to behold for how well it paints a feeling of absolute dread and hopelessness

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Song of Healing is up there with my all time favorite soundtracks

      • Clock Town is just incredible. How a happy melody never changes but it becomes absolutely dreadful by day 3. When you hear it you just know that sh*t’s fucked

    • Armaggedon16

      The Zelda series in general, along with Persona, has imo the best osts in gaming.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    I think i’m gonna treat myself to XC2 as a New Year’s present

  • The Butter Grinch

    If the decision which one of these games will be better, Pokemon Switch or Metroid Prime 4, was your’s, what would you do

    • Doctah Govnah

      Pokemon switch duh, because of Metroid Prime 4 is gonna be developed by Bandai Namco its most likely gonna be great

    • Prime 4

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Pokemon cuz having a Pokemon game that’s better than a game that’s probably gonna be awesome would be pretty great.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Pokemon hands down, I don’t give an effing s about Metroid

      • thats unfortunate. Metroid is great

        • EarthenWarrior

          yeah never fell into the hype

          • Which ones have you played? I feel like you would like it so I’m suprised

          • EarthenWarrior

            Nun

          • You gotta change that.

      • Ultron

        You should, as it’s a nintendo classic that deserves your respect

    • ShinyXatu

      I’d go with Metroid Prime 4 because it will probably be my first Metroid Prime game that I play through (unless they release Prime 1-3 on Switch beforehand). Gen 8 will likely be inferior to Gen 9 anyway, if the 3DS era is anything to go by.

    • Pokémon on every level

    • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

      Pokemon switch for me.

    • Ultron

      Well I havent played the metroid series ever so I cant really say without bias completely controlling my decision, which isn’t fair to a series I’ve never experienced. But I’m at at least inclined to agree with Xatu. If Gen 6 is anything to go off of, most of the effort will be put into graphical updates for gen 8. I wouldnt expect a lot from any other aspects of gen 8. Probably not even pokemon designs.

  • Working on my BOTW section of my essay. While I’m going to cut and summarize alot in the final thing, I wanted to share the section I wrote about BOTW’s soundtrack. Comments and criticisms welcome!
    A major criticism of Breath of the Wild is with the soundtrack. The series has always been full of some of the best soundtracks in gaming. So much emotion is tied in with these pieces of music. Hearing the Hyrule Field theme the first time after leaving Kokiri Forest in Ocarina of Time while being greeted with a bright new world is a feeling that I will never forget. And the music always ties in directly with the games they originate from. Wind Waker’s music fills the mind with dreams of Seafaring Adventure while Skyward Sword’s score swells with sweeping orchestral pieces that feel romantic and comforting reminding you of why you are on your quest. Majora’s Mask however, haunts the player with sound that never gives them the luxury to relax. Like the moon that constantly looms over the people of Termina, even the upbeat melody of Clock Town drowns into a dreadful repetitive song that leaves no hope to the people of this world.
    These scores set the player on a journey matching the world they are immersed in. Taking away the music is taking away a piece of the experience as you lose a crucial part of world building. The music is a hugely important tool in the story telling. Breath of the Wild’s hyrule is a land that is torn apart. A melancholy realm where a kingdom that once thrived is left to ruin. Their hero has been dead for one hundred years. The time for a master swordsman to swoop in and save the world is long gone. You aren’t a valiant hero that everyone knows will save the world anymore. You’re an adventurer trying to do right to the world that has little left to offer.
    Riding a horse isn’t accompanied by a sweeping hero’s song, but rather a simple, playful tune that gallops along with the horse. As the notes jump, Zelda’s Lullaby quietly rides along, a slow quiet duet that brings little attention to itself. At night, the main theme takes the lullaby’s place.
    The world fills itself with small piano flourishes and the sounds of nature. Often times you are left with birds chirping and the wind blowing through the grass. Hyrule itself whispering through nature as it no longer has the strength to make itself known in a loud bellowing roar calling for heros. All it can muster now is a quiet, reflective last sigh of sadness.
    Towns and villages are where life is still thriving somewhat and the songs feel more alive and melodic. It shines during the Tarry Town side quest where you are tasked with helping a growing village fine citizens and workers from all corners of the world. When you do, motifs from that race is added to the basic melody such as gorons with loud, obtuse horns, and wind instruments from the Rito. Sections from the themes of their domains fuse together harmonically to create a song full of life signifying another new start for the land.
    While the music from Breath of the Wild may not stick with you like music from the rest of the series would, it is the right choice for the world. Themes from other games are laced within the music of BotW to show that even though this melancholy Hyrule is broken, it isn’t completely gone. It blends the struggling land of hyrule with the past and you are the one left to salvage what’s left. All told musically.

      It does make complete sense for the game, but damn is it still disappointing.

    I mean… a shitton of animes I like are getting stuff next year. So 2018 looks noice

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      What’s on the docket for next ear anime wise? I’ve really fallen off the seasonal schedule and am just trying to keep up with what I can.

      • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

        Re Zero is getting an OVA
        Konosuba has a new project involving it
        It’s extremely likely One Punch Man season 2 will be out
        My Hero Academia season 3

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          I’m looking forward to MHA season 3. Also I really hope One Punch Man comes back soon. Was a really funny and awesome show.

          • Please don’t hate me 2018…

            I’m looking forward to Re Zero getting anything

  • Doctah Govnah

    my 2018 goal is gonna be watching the whole Dragon ball series again before 2019
    Dragon Ball then Z then Super then GT (even tho its not canon)

    • UnburdenedLegume

      i tried to do that but Kai and the remastered episodes are lame. They replaced all of the OST and it just isnt the same

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Pat aside I thought Kai did a good job with the redubbing. All the actors knew what they needed to do this time and were comfortable with their voices.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Voice acting is good but the fights are woeful without the proper music

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Don’t watch GT…….don’t subject yourself. It’s not even canon anymore.

      • Doctah Govnah

        hmm true. I might just watch the last part with SSJ4

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Wait when was this confirmed that GT aint canon anymore?

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Well for one Toriyama basically once said he doesn’t like GT and barely had anything to do with it. Also with super how is it possible any of GT could happen? Both Goku and Vegeta are way stronger in Super than they were in GT. The existence of SS God and Beerus are enough to make GT illegitimate

    So with Animal Crossing Switch inevitably coming, what upgrades to the series do you think they’ll make? New Leaf added town customization, which is pretty huge. I’m thinking:
    -Cooking. It is a simulator game after all and it would give us something more to do inside our houses.

    -Designing other animals houses. Surely Happy Home Designer wasnt for nothing, right? I think it would be great to totally up the customization aspect of the game. Maybe even get villagers input on what they want for their house.

    -Inviting/Evicting villagers. Something that has always bothered me with the series is that there are just those one villagers who won’t get the hell out of your town. Ignoring them for literal weeks on end sometimes just doesn’t do it. Especially given our mayoral powers in new Leaf we can’t get them to leave. Wouldnt it be nice to pick and choose? In NL I constantly had people come to my campsite that i just couldnt invite because my town was full of uglies who wouldnt leave. And going off the campsite invite aspect of NL, I do REALLY like that in pocket camper we can choose who we want at our campsite. No uglies!

    -Base character customization! Leaving it up to random questions asked by Rover in the beginning is a no no from me.

    -More travelling. The only place to really go in NL was the island, which was nice, but too small. Im thinking a city/metropolitan area like City Folk, but way bigger and more customizable. Maybe even an apartment style living that you can adopt and live in? Maybe in the beginning you choose between developing a town or a city and then at some point in the game you can do the option you didnt choose.

    Thoughts? Input? I know I’ve been on about AC too much, but thinking about it has carried me through the past few crummy weeks 😛

    • EarthenWarrior

      I just want a freaking REAL PAPER MARIO SERIOUSLY NINTENDO GET INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS AND MAKE A GOOD PAPER MARIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

      • LunaMoon

        Colour Splash was a nice move away from SS IMO though. Besides I’m sure they’ll return to the old format or the more popular one now.

      • Ultron

        Ian, as much as I appreciate your ideas, you do have a tendency to take a someones topic and turn it into something you want to talk about.. 😛

        But unfortunately I can’t even entertain your idea as I’ve never played the paper mario series. Turn based rpgs just don’t interest me outside of pokemon

        • paper mario actually makes turn based combat interesting though

          • Ultron

            Maybe I’ll try it out if they do one on the switch.

          • I’d say try the original on Wii U VC honestly.

            Or one of the mario and luigi games as it’s pretty similar

          • Ultron

            ..I sold my wii u for switch money 😛 no fuckin regrets tho

          • Lol. Just emulate it then. I have low expectations for any new entry in Paper Mario

    • LunaMoon

      Probably the ability to have your “town” go through different stages.

      Settlement -> Large Settlement -> Miniature Village -> Village -> Expansive Village -> Rural Town -> Suburban Town -> Urban Town -> MegaTown -> City -> Megalopolis -> Ultra Megalopolis -> City State

      • Ultron

        That would be kinda cool. Though some people would definitely lament the loss of the small town rural feel animal crossing can have. That’s why I suggested separate towns. But I also think going from rural to urban would change the music and you would lose some themes as it evolves

        • LunaMoon

          I dunno they could make the towns/main area to have different themes so even when its at a maximum point, at an urban city, you could have it look like a rustic city.

      • ShinyXatu

        This is a very, very interesting idea. It goes to show you that Nintendo have only barely scratched the surface of this series, and they have no excuse for not making Animal Crossing Switch as soon as possible. However, I feel like they’d probably have separate the town, city, shopping area, etc. to be upgraded individually, because somebody may like to spend their time surrounded by nature while others would want big buildings around them.

        • LunaMoon

          Yeah but they should also introduce some sort of level-based system, and not have each place be individually upgraded as that’s similar to tons of basic apps.

    • EarthenWarrior

      I feel more in-door activities would be a nice addition but really Animal Crossing is basically fishing until your pockets are full and selling it to that asshole Tom Nook and making your little world slightly comfier until you either stop playing or get trapped in a house fire

      • Ultron

        Maybe to add to the indoor activity part, having furniture that actually does stuff. Like collecting books you can read and putting them in a bookcase? Or keeping ingredients in a pantry or fridge? Phones that let you call villagers and invite them over?

        • EarthenWarrior

          ….we eat? its usually we eat like one fruit off a tree and just kinda starve

          • Ultron

            Yeah the eating part would come with the cooking part. But would that mechanic then make it necessary for us the player to make sure our player is fed? Or would cooking be completely optional and just used for selling and gifting to villagers?

    • ShinyXatu

      Possibly tourists? Like a crap ton of villagers who walk through the city and you can form a relationship with ALL of them, blowing everyone’s mind. Then you could have a diary or something to keep track of your relationship with all 400+ animals. It would be a bit like Pocket Camp in this way, but also be its own thing due to the huge variety.
      Another thing that I would love would be an upgradeable boat that can go out onto the ocean, with each upgrade allowing you to go a little bit further and get rarer and more difficult fish species (with some alternate colored ones, like Shiny Pokemon).

      • Ultron

        Oh, I really like that! Something to keep track of everyone would be great! And I like the boat too, a way to get rarer fish sounds good especially when you’ve got those big loans and need to rack up money

        • ShinyXatu

          It just sort of makes sense to scale up in that way, if they also scale up to upgrading entire cities over time. That’s assuming that they don’t introduce some new way to get Bells which we can’t even imagine at the moment. An idea I have for that would be tenants, where you can welcome villagers into your home and get some money from that every week or so. It would be a double whammy because you get to keep your favorite villagers in one place, AND get paid for it too!

          • Ultron

            You’ve got some good ideas. Do you think they’ll introduce new species of villagers? I was thinking more sea life as the octopi are kind of one offs. Sharks? Crabs?

          • ShinyXatu

            Thank you, I honestly just started thinking about it now. Back when Wild World was the latest release I was a little kid who thought the series was for girls or babies, and laughed at the idea of playing it, but now it makes me extremely happy. You actually just reminded me of an idea that I had probably 10 years ago or so! Basically, I thought there could be some rare villagers based on underwater species like sharks, crabs, whales, angler fish, etc. which wash up on shore (like Gulliver) all disoriented and can then become a part of your town. It would also be neat because they would be super foreign (maybe speaking an underwater language that has to be translated) and give you very rare items from sets exclusive to them.

          • Ultron

            That would be cool. I wonder if that would imply that there’s an underwater city where they live.

            But what do you think about the idea of having negative relationships with villagers?

  • uhg… how do i even condense my thoughts on BOTW. I’m sitting here with 1300+ words written on the game.

    I know I gotta shorten it but I just have so much love for this game >.>

  • HOLY DICK ITS LENS BIRTHDAY

    I hate today now :3
    I just wish my friend Nick didn’t move

  • Ugh I just want to play my DS a bit before midnight, but instead I have to watch a bunch of action movies when I’d rather just play my DS or watch a damn comedy if any movie

  • Please don’t suck, 2018…

    My thoughts are my profile name

    Well I’m going to bed, 2017 you were a gigantic steaming pile of shite, I only fear for the worst in the upcoming year
