By now many of you have probably heard about the corpse that “YouTube personality” Logan Paul (and crew) found, filmed and subsequently mocked in Japan. It was a terrible moment for social media and anyone who uses it because of how plainly it exposed the vapid and narcissistic depths to which it can sink and how far some people will go to attract viewers.

What you may be less familiar with is that during his time in Japan Logan Paul continued his antics with a video of playing “real-life Pokémon GO” on the streets of Tokyo. I won’t link directly to the video (if you watch it please do so on a mirror to deprive him of the views), but he harasses hapless Japanese passerbys in various ways. Walking into a sushi bar he throws the plush Pokéball at an unamused chef, runs into traffic dressed as Pokémon characters and even tries to get a rise out of a police officer.

This has now gained traction in various Japanese outlets and while the general understanding seems to be that he is a crazy YouTuber, it was not a good impression of Westerners—and certainly not for those of us who actually like the Pokémon franchise. If you want to visit Japan in the future (and I recommend it, great country!) it is particularly important that Japanese people see us as generally respectful and willing to learn. Therefore I think we all have a small duty to pushback online against this sort of repugnant behavior.

We should recognize as a fandom that this sort of behavior is not acceptable and anyone masquerading around in Pokémon costumes and harassing people is not something the Pokémon community condones. And that stand whether or not it’s Logan Paul. If you want to take action there’s a petition to get him removed from YouTube as well.

Here’s to making 2018 a better year.

  • Butter Geek

    F*ck him, why do small kids even like his videos?

    • zess

      Because children and those with a child like mentality like loud nonsensical things. It’s really sad that YouTube supports this kind of disgusting behavior more so the lack of parents watching the content that their children consume online. Like you can’t just give them an iPad and call it a day you have to be more proactive.

    • Because he’s an adult that acts wild and childish and “savage” and that validates that part of them while they’re at the age where they need to start growing up

  • Daedardus

    Logan Paul is partially fake, partially ahole and everything he does it just to gain clicks/views/subs/money, like almost all big Youtubers out there, he doesn’t actually care about you as long as you make him. Don’t support this type of personalities, and watch the actual content creators on Youtube that put lots of effort themselves in their videos and that don’t have a million dollar production house behind them!

    • Butter Geek

      Okay, as someone Who watches many youtubers, luckily most of the Big youtubers are much better than the Pauls. For sure not perfect, but they aren’t that bad.

      • Daedardus

        Yup, luckily we have great dudes like Pewdiepie, Fine Bros, Verlisify, Boogie,…

        • Butter Geek

          Well Pewdiepie and Boogie aren’t bad and Fine Bros are better than most Reaction channels. Verlisify is the only actually bad one on the list and he isn’t even Big.

          • Daedardus

            Meanwhile, the Fine Bros tried to trademark ‘reaction videos’ and sued many people doing similar stuff, they took a step back when they got a lot of heat for that though.

          • Daedardus

            And Pewdiepie has a history of saying bad stuff on cam, which isn’t the real issue, but more how he handled the response, which didn’t show a good side of him tbh.

          • Butter Geek

            What? Did you see his apology video? He looked like he really regrets those mistakes. And you have to admit, he got scr*wed over by news outlets (but not really by other youtubers like Logan Paul).

          • Daedardus

            His apology video was the worst one, since like I said, he again played the victim card and he didn’t get screwed by news outlet, he got repercussions for actions he did in the past. Kinda like if I screw up on the job and made the company look really bad, my employer has a good reason to take sanctions against me.

          • Butter Geek

            I mean, when you Compare it to Paul’s apology it’s not that bad. And he got scr*wed over. When you watch him for a while you can see that the news outlets were really overreacting. He did something awful few times, but what they wrote it isn’t representive of what he usually makes.

          • Daedardus

            I think that’s the actual problem: because he has reached this celebrity status, it somehow shields him from the consequences of the stuff he does and would diminish every bad thing he says (not to mention his userbase consists of lots of kids who have trouble completely understanding this action->consequence dynamic).. News outlets were completely in their right by dropping him from a business view (like they can do with everyone they sponsor), this stuff happens a lot in sports too, people get lots of dropped sponsorships after stuff they’ve done.

          • Butter Geek

            The popularity makes what he did worse, tho it’s not like his viewers are kids that have him as their role model. But it also makes the consequences much much bigger. If he had 50k subs nobody would care. Yes, if he wasn’t popular people wouldn’t defend him that much, but if he wasn’t popular there wouldn’t be anything to defend him from.

  • Funny Valentine

    I don’t like Logan Paul, and I know I’m far from the only one, but that dead body video and him just generally being an asshole is not enough of a reason to kick him off YouTube. Let him get banned by getting strikes like the rest of us instead of petitioning it (which almost definitely won’t work in the first place). It sets a dangerous precedent that if we don’t like someone, we can petition and rant about them to get them off the platform.

    • Daedardus

      “It sets a dangerous precedent that if we don’t like someone, we can petition and rant about them to get them off the platform.”

      This is the whole basis for democratic election of leaders…

      • Funny Valentine

        1. That has nothing to do with this.
        2. This has more in common with Hillary Clinton supporters making a petition for the Electoral College to elect her instead of Trump than an actual vote for whether or not he should be off the platform.

        • Daedardus

          The petition itself holds no legal basis, but this is making clear to Youtube that they need to think about they need to handle such behaviour on their website. They are clearly lacking on that part, and the platform has become a prime support for people making a quick buck by targetting other users or spreading false information.
          Nobody is actually saying they need to remove him for reaching X petitions, but if you don’t like something, make your voice heard.

          • Funny Valentine

            I never said there was a legal basis. Petitions have no legal basis.

            It’s clear that they’re lacking on that part because YouTube themselves are biased. YouTube promotes people like him because they know he’s the type that they can make the most money off of.

            Um people are saying they need to remove him. Over a quarter million and counting: https://www.change.org/p/youtube-delete-logan-paul-s-youtube-channel

          • Daedardus

            “Nobody is actually saying they need to remove him for reaching X petitions”, is different from “Nobody is saying they need to remove him”. This is clearly making your voice heard and putting the ball in Youtube’s park. What other action do you expect them to? “Yeah Youtube, uhh you wanna let Logan sit in a corner for an hour and after that he can go play again, OK. Be nice to him, ok bb.”
            This not setting a predecent that they need to remove everyone who reaches a certain amount of votes, but it is making clear that this behaviour should not be tolerated.

          • Funny Valentine

            No it’s setting a precedent that YouTube should listen to people making petitions to get rid of YouTubers they disagree with. I never said anything about having a certain amount of signatures or petitions.

    • PJ

      Essentially I agree, but as a YouTube ambassador of sorts (with his own YouTube RED series) I think that this should have made the platform look bad enough that YT should have stepped in. I’m not personally for just getting rid of people I disagree with in general.

      • Butter Geek

        What is your RED series?

        • PJ

          Sadly I don’t have a RED series. They turned down “The Real Wives of Pokémon”—their loss. Logan Paul is doing The Fighting Dead or something apparently though

          • Butter Geek

            Oooh, I read that wrong lol. I’d watch Real Wives of Pokemon tho

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Should be “The Real Waifus of Pokemon”.

      • Funny Valentine

        YouTube already did say the usual thing about him not representing their values and that stuff, so they technically have stepped in. They probably would have deleted the video, but Logan did it for them.

  • zess

    Haven’t been here in a while so Happy New Year to you all! Btw how’s everybody doing so far?

    • PJ

      Happy New Year 🙂

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Happy New Year. I’ve not done much except see The Last Jedi again and Jumanji:WTTJ which I felt was OK but not a patch on the original overall.
      How have you been?

      • zess

        Fine. I’ve just been extremely busy with work trying to organize things before the the busy season arrives. I’ve been thinking of seeing The Last Jedi, since you’ve seen it twice i take it is a good movie?

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Well I enjoyed it alot, I have my problems with it but I can mostly get over them.

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    Ugh, typical coming from one of the Paul brothers really, always acting acting so obnoxious and annoying creating a bad image for youtubers ( and now for americans and tourists who visits Japan) yet Youtube somehow supports his channel whether making them appear prominently on a Rewind or not taking down or even age restrict his suicide video forest after they manually reviewed his channel; and I assume it’s because they get a lot of views.

    But anyways, as long as he still gets endless support from his fangirls (they always support him no matter what messed thing he does I swear) and Youtube to a certain degree, he’ll still act like that, so hopefully YT does something in the matter.

    • Daedardus

      As long as he earns money, so does Youtube. YTB will only step in when they risk tarnishing their brand image, thus losing (making less) money.

  • That guy is a moron. People can’t have that as a role model.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It concerns me how many people might think it’s OK and try to replicate this behaviour or take it further.

  • Daedardus

    For example, Boogie has taken up for The Quartering (twitter.com/TheQuartering) a guy who got angry at the creators of Magic TCG because ‘they depict too much women in the game while we know women can’t play Magic’ and who was banned for life from the game after years long evidence of harassment of other Magiccers and is now on a crusade due to the ban. His Twitter should show you how toxic this stuff is.

  • Butter Geek

    That’s an overreaction, especially from someone that doesn’t watch him. It’s the same problem that Pewdiepie has gone through. They both did some absolutely sh*tty stuff and people who don’t watch them judge them just on the bad things. The diffrence between them and someone like Logan Paul is that you can see they aren’t really bad people, they just make mistakes and honestly regret them. (I have to admit I’m talking mostly about Pewdiepie here, I don’t watch Boogie that much, tho I know people that do).

    • Daedardus

      Well, PDP isn’t as bad as Boogie, but go watch recent events/Twitter of Boogie. He’s really not a “nice guy that has done some shitty things”, he’s the dude that plays the victim card whenever he has targeted someone else (psychological projection). He was banned on NeoGAF due to that, and I know the admin who banned him, the stories he told of him in private conversations…

      • Butter Geek

        Well not saying that you’re wrong but I think you’re basing your opinion on him just on the sh*tty stuff. And honestly, I have a feeling the Admin who banned him would show him in a bad light on purpose.

        • Daedardus

          Well, if he has clearly done shitty stuff and continues on doing so, does that not make him shitty even though he has done a few good things? Everyone does good and bad things, but there’s somewhere that a line needs to be drawn where you can’t accept more of the bad stuff.
          And the admin is a really cool guy, he has no reason to just ban people for doing nothing wrong, and why would he show him in a bad light on purpose? He gets banned for the stuff he does, he doesn’t do stuff for getting banned.

          • Butter Geek

            I mean, if the Admin had good reasons to ban him, he’d probably tell others just the bad things he did, leaving a bad impression of a person he didn’t get to know well.

          • Daedardus

            If you make a serious traffic violation, doesn’t that give the judge the right to take actions concerning your driving license? It doesn’t matter if he’s a good person or not for other things, what matters is that you can and should take action concerning a person’s bad behaviour. If that behaviour is through making Youtube videos (or posting on a video game forum or twitter), you should be able to take action against those.

          • Butter Geek

            I mean, it’s totally fine that the Admin banned him, I’m just saying that could leave a wrong picture of him in the admin’s mind.

  • MenacingCascoon

    Wow,he really makes Westerners/foreigners look terrible. I hope the people there understand only he’s the idiot. But what can you do? Youtube is makiing money off him, He’s making money off it. There’s no way to stop it

    • MenacingCascoon

      (Dont mean to be rude or anything but I still havent gotten an email from PJNfor my reward, If you sent it lmk)

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Soooooooooo sick of seeing this scumbags face on the internet. Had no idea who was before all this and now I wish it had stayed that way……..it doesn’t matter where you’re from, who you are, or what country you visit. Nothing excuses the behavior he exhibited and I’m disgusted……

  • Bae Nijima

    Y’all know I’m not exactly a Deci fan but wow they did him dirty compared to Prima and Inci here

    • MenacingCascoon

      They all actually look pretty cool. The other Deci plush looks terrible, so this is a nice change. Inci looks aight though

      • Bae Nijima

        The thing is tho is that these are figures, but they just gave Deci normal arms and made its wings felt. It just looks bad because the colour and texture is totally different, and because they’re pose-able so if you move Deci’s ‘arms’ in any way the wings are going to droop and just look awful.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Still want it.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Not only it looks a little too fatty but it’s wings… it’s just… no

    • It looks fine to me, but I don’t understand why they put cloth on the wings

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Never heard of them. Often I see people that are so inconsiderate, disrespectful of others, unkind and selfish, I’m so sick of it. There’s no excuse for this behaviour from whoever this is and they should’ve been arrested and cautioned/fined. It’s not funny and paints a distorted and largely incorrect picture of those they, knowingly or otherwise, represent (Westerners, Pokemon Fans etc). I certainly won’t be watching anything this ignorant moron does, they deserve to be punished and I hope they get their comeuppance sooner rather than later, before they influence others and cause further harm.

    • And just when you think it’s over, Jake Paul does equally as stupid

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Also have no idea who that is.

        • You’re better off that way

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I really get that feeling. A shame people like this are successful.

          • zess

            It sucks and it teaches the small children who idolized them that if they act the same way they can make it big too and it enhances the idea that you as long as you have money and fame you can do illegalor irritating things ect. without consequences

          • Monkeyfuzz

            It’s bad, I don’t understand their success or lack of punishment (I know YT is because money but pretty sure they broke laws in Japan). I just hope parents of kids who watch them are able to teach them how wrong what these people are doing is.

  • EarthenWarrior

    never heard of this buttwipe

  • I just keep seeing people I didn’t expect to cover this actually cover this. I’m not mad about it or anything, just surprised, I guess

  • EarthenWarrior

    And if i may speak freely similar to wolf boy any negative views or outright hostility be it social media or any other format is what he wants, people like them gain their fame by being worse that the worst because infamy and fame are nearly identical, i rather just let them tie their own nooses on their own pace and not fan the flames, with any luck some radical will just do the work for us

  • Butter Geek

    If there’s good one thing that came out of Logan Paul’s terrible actions and fake apology, it’s this video from Jacksfilms
    https://youtu.be/ySJpMyLiLRU

  • ShinyXatu

    I have no tolerance for bigoted “men” like this who expect everything to be handed to them on a silver platter, and see others as below them due to their skewed perspective on reality. Logan Paul and his brother Jake are scourge of the Earth and deserve nothing less than to be shunned from the public eye and work at McDonalds for the rest of their lives rather than rolling around in cash, negatively influencing millions of children along the way. This is the objective truth. Now, how about you SMASH that upvote button and get this post to 1,000 upvotes?

      Should it matter? Make your coffee, enjoy a great sandwich, life goes on, nothing of value is lost.

      • Sunniera 2.0

        No, but it is kind of like that one time when Pokémon had announced a new trailer for SM on a Wednesday morning, and they ended up delaying it to another day last minute. It is the little things that accumulate that make up the day, and I would prefer if there aren’t too many bad little things that I should concern myself with.

        • Daedardus

          Meh. So many great things you need to focus on though! Wouldn’t say my day was very exciting, but I had a nice shower, looked great after that, had some laughs from talking to people, learned new things, ate a really nice croissant, the weather is fair, got my most popular imgur comment et, watched a good soccer match, and in all in it was very relaxing. Don’t fing care what this LP did or if people think I don’t know Bitcoin or that I shouldn’t find furries weird, that won’t screw up my day!

  • Bae Nijima
    • Wow, Pokemon outsold Dragon Quest and Zelda.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Hard to believe that 1 2 Switch is still selling at all, or that SM is still selling that well even with USUM as a choice. Not surprised at USUM selling that well because is still recent and games sell best when they’re relatively new I guess.

      • I think it’s selling just because it came with the Switch

      • Bae Nijima

        The thing is that’s the sales for all of those games within 2017, meaning that it’s outselling stuff like Odyssey and BOTW in a shorter time than those two

        • Bae Nijima

          Wait nvm wasn’t Odyssey after USUM? I actually can’t remember lol

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            No lol, both odyssey and zelda released before USUM, you can see the date in the pic tho :p

    • Bae Nijima

      Just gonna take down my own notes on it

      – Not surprising that there’s no XO games on here, because I knew beforehand Microsoft doesn’t sell to well in Japan.
      – What is surprising is how Yokai Watch doesn’t seem to be selling super, super well. Granted it’s the newest game on that list but it’s not any less surprising. Especially since it was outsold by a game that came early the year before.
      – You can really tell what sorts of games Japan likes. Monster Hunter, Dragon Quest, USUM. They love their RPGs. They also love their cute quirky things, like Splatoon and Yokai Watch.
      – Despite how innovative and well received it is, BotW didn’t sell as much as I thought it would. Whereas Odyssey is chilling in the top 5 despite a relatively later release.
      – Japan really freaking loves Pokemon. Like, seriously. SuMo being in the top 10 is insane considering that people knew that there was a ‘better’ version coming for half of the year. Despite that, I know there was outcry in Japan due to USUM.

      • XO?

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Yokai Watch not selling nearly as well as it used to sell doesn’t surprise me because the series is losing its popularity rather quickly as far as i’m aware.

      • Daedardus

        >Xbox One maybe has 10,000 consoles out there, sells usually 50/week comapred to 30K+ for Switch.
        >Still respectable sales for Japan, although less than usual yes
        >Of course, those are all monster franchises saleswise.
        >Zelda’s never been much of a Japanese franchise even though it’s made in Japan, seems like it’s on track to sell better than before though
        >No surprises there, even though Pokémon USUM is a lot lower than SM.

        Keep in mind population of Japan is around 120 million. That’s 1 in 70 that owns Splatoon 2! Those are crazy numbers for any product!

  • The goal of my content is ALWAYS to entertain

    • Daedardus

      But what if you entertain through hurting other people? As stupid as it sounds, LP himself thinks he probably just entertains everyone too. The goal should be to entertain without crossing the line in hurting other people :).

      • Butter Geek

        She quoted the beggining of LP’s alology

        • Daedardus

          Case in point!

      • Sunniera 2.0

        Unfortunately what Dae says is true. There are varying perspectives in this world and something that may appear harmless to the one saying might be quite harmful for another. Now I am pretty sure the general consensus is that Logan Paul was aware of how harmful he was. I am just emphasizing that care must be taken on this medium as misunderstandings can easily occur.

        • Daedardus

          Yep. And I do think it’s possible to say ‘daring’ things and still be able to entertain people. People fearing that they can’t do anything anymore need to learn when something’s really hurtful or not. Severity and intensity are major contributing factors to that. Borat is an example of a movie that makes many controversial jokes, but if you watch the movie, he makes fun of everyone and you realise not all of it is actually serious (Baron Cohen is a jew himself and the jewish couple they visited were actually very fond of how nicely Baron Cohen treated them). Or how the Fawtly Towers german sketch is acceptable, since not all of Fawtly towers concerns making fun of germans).

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So far I’m actually really enjoying playthrough Black again. It’s bringing back a lot of feelings. BW were such a breath of fresh air for me after gen 4. It was also the first game that I actually completed the regional dex ever (I’d ususally get close, but always have a few missing) So far my main team members are My Pansear (My real starter) and Woobat. I also have a Sawk in straining so I can take on Lenora. I’m not sure I’ll keep it on my team, but we shall see. Then in the back I have a Lilipup who I had just in case I needed and extra body that didn’t have a specific weakness. Then finally my Oshawott whom I would have boxed already, but I have cut on him so he’s gotta stick around for at least a little while. Nothing personal with him, but I’ve already used Oshawott so he was never gonna be on the team anyway.

  • what an assH*le! I hope he gets banned wherever he goes, but stupid people just keeps following him…

  • Bae Nijima

    If Pokemon Switch is one game rather than two, do you expect them to stick to one Pokemon per cover or do you think they’ll switch it up a bit?

    I personally hope they’ll switch it up, most Pokemon box arts look kinda boring because its just one Pokemon on the cover on a different background. And most of the time it’s literally their Sugimori art, not even a dynamic pose or anything that looks far more appealing.

    • Butter Geek

      I’d like it to be a 3D render of some pokemon on a 3D background (same, but double if there are 2 versions)

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      They’ll just make the background more vivid or just the map of the region and call it a day. But yeah, they could pull a SMD and have a ton of Pkm in the cover and the main legend in the background really. But knowing GF I feel kinda doubtful that they would change the cover art

    • Luigi301

      this is an interesting thing to think about. i guess i didnt think about with switch games being more expensive would that lead to an end to the split. but now it makes me wonder, what will they do about completing a new dex for example. will they just make all pokemon available in one game?

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      If they do just one version then I could see them do a more artistic cover. Still with maybe a single Pokemon or maybe 2 as the main pieces, but it’s possible they add more in the background and maybe even put a landscape in there.

            The troll recognizes me?

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Of course, they’re clearly the same person from before

          • Daedardus

            It’s always those two Pakistani dudes, smh, they can’t give up.

          • Yaboi Lebron james

            Yes and the troll has come back as a good person and btw you might rerecognize me from that comment I made on starstorm

    • It should, but it unfortunately won’t

      • Yaboi Lebron james

        Yeah because YouTube favour him in everything

    I guess it’s true what they say. There’s no such thing as bad publicity. Before this whole fiasco I didn’t even know this guy existed…
    Imagine how much money he must be making just from curious people looking around his content.

    Personally I don’t wish anything negative on him, but can only hope he uses this situation as a learning curve to become a better person. Probably unlikely but it’s better that a person with his kind of influence does something good rather than fading into obscurity…

    Just my 2 cents.

    • Bae Nijima

      My thoughts near exactly tbh. He’s not malicious, he’s ignorant. He doesn’t need something bad to happen to him, he needs to wise up realise what he’s done and move on to do better things.

      • Luigi301

        honestly i disagree. I dont think someone who did somethng this stupid should have a platform at all. his audience is too young for him to be putting out so much stupid content. But maybe this was a way to get away from that audience. Then you have his brother who continues to do stupid things. they should not be whatever the influence they are

      • Daedardus

        That’s why you take (good) corrective action, give him a reason so he knows to wise up and move on. This ‘apology’ video hardly will do that. And especially let it rest for a while, if he just goes on to do the same thing next month it hardly was the right action at all. I don’t want him dead lol.

        • Luigi301

          it wasnt even an apology for what he did. it was an apology for how the viewers responded to it. but as many people have already expressed, nothing will happen. YT doesnt care because they believe the BS that it was suicide prevention, which to me seems extremely inappropriate and disrespectful to people who really want the help. They responded to people complaining by saying something like “we work with groups like suicide prevention….” once someone else messes up, he will be out of the spotlight. thats just how it works.

    • Luigi301

      sure but i know both him and his brother because of the bad stuff they have done. It’s not a good thing to know someone because of their stupidity. That is bad publicity.

            Well do you want STAB or not
            imagine all those times where you needed a Electric attack and lose because you couldn’t handle recoil

          • Maple Seraphp

            Thunderpunch

        • Chaos

          I wasn’t sure if it got Thunder Punch or Wild Charge, so left it out.

          • Maple Seraphp

            It gets both I think, thunder I know is tutor but wild charge is recoil so…

          • Chaos

            Yeah Wild Charge not great for sweeping. But good for punching holes into the opposing team for your main sweeper to sweep easier late game.

            Depends what your teams needs I guess.

          • Maple Seraphp

            Yeee
            I mean to be fair I’ve gotten worse..

    • Bae Nijima

      Because the game doesn’t revolve around comp and it’d be annoying if everything in-game had the same nature as your synchronise ‘Mons

      They should add an item or something that makes it work 100% of the time but Synchro only working some of the time makes sense. Same reason Static and Magnet Pull don’t guarantee encounters with the Pokemon they draw in.

      • Maple Seraphp

        Just something, anything is better than this shitt

        • Luigi301

          is a non shiny adamant one better?

          • Maple Seraphp

            I wouldn’t have caught it, I just prefer to not spend several days only to get dissapointed

          • Luigi301

            thats the point. you got the shiny. why get disappointed because it doesnt have the right nature. to get a shiny first of all, is extremely difficult. tack on the fact that you want a certain nature, its even harder. its still a shiny tho.

          • Maple Seraphp

            Well
            1. I’m always going to get the shinies, just a matter of when
            2. It’s for bragging rights, comp reasons

          • Luigi301

            in that case maybe you should keep hunting. i guess its just a matter of when you will get a shiny with the desired nature

          • Maple Seraphp

            I would but it had nasty plot and that battle is not an experience I’m willing to relive

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        I don’t see that annoying when synchronize would only work if the Pkm is the leading one in the party

        • Bae Nijima

          Because some people have Synchro mons in their actual party and if every wild with them in front is their nature it can get annoying

  • EarthenWarrior

    wait Seraph Thundurus does get Thunder Punch

    • Maple Seraphp

      Yep, move tutor

  • Bae Nijima

    Can we talk about the fact that the article header actually crosses out some random guy in the Logang and not Logan himself? It’s probably because I’m super bored but I find it like very very slightly funny

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      The logang and Logan are more or less very very slightly the same thing

  • Is there a single person out there who has Karrablast as their favorite pokemon

    I really don’t think so

    • Chaos

      What’s a Karrablast?

      • EXACTLY

      • Armaggedon16

        That thing you trade to get an Accelgor

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Nope but Escavalier is cool though!

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      If there are then i guess they’re having a blast with it

    • Maple Seraphp

      No but I can see escavalier being someone’s

  • UnburdenedLegume
    • Armaggedon16

      fake logos. Nice

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Hey man we all want some juicy news, its getting boring now

        • Armaggedon16

          Its been like 2 months since usum released. The Pokemon fan base needs to calm down lol

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Basically the same game as SuMo with minor tweaks

          • Armaggedon16

            Tru but it’s been a very short amount of time since a maingame was released. I don’t expect any news this year at all

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Ugh i would be devastated ngl and i frankly dont think GF can afford to do that. Even a teaser would be great

          • Bae Nijima

            USUM was the best selling game of 2017 in Japan and it came out in November.

            They can afford a single gap year to make PokeSwitch better

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Yeah thats why i said a teaser for a game in 2019 would be fine. Lots of developers do that tbh to at least let the fans know something is in the works

          • they already did at E3

          • UnburdenedLegume

            With footage this time like a 30 second teaser with (tentative) title at the end. Just something

          • why

            we know a game is coming. knowing the titles wont mean anything

            be patient. play some other games. shadow of the colossus is getting remade this year, that’s exciting

          • Bae Nijima

            People got annoyed with an USUM teaser with no follow up

            Imagine the same for longer

          • Armaggedon16

            Pretty sure they can “afford’ it. And really a slight mention at e3 us the most I expect. And it’s better this way, I can’t think of many quality game franchises that release as often as Pokemon gams do.

          • Bae Nijima

            And their games are going from handheld to console. They need to step it up

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Faaaaaaaaake Yup I’m gonna be one of those people this time

    • Maple Seraphp

      Fake but they look pretty

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    My Woobat will never evolve. It keeps getting knocked out by weirdly strong Pokemon that shouldn’t be hurting it this much. I’m gonna have to pump it full of vitamins if I want it to evolve at a reasonable time

    • Be sure to get the Soothe Bell in Nimbasa

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Good tip

    • EarthenWarrior

      Like my Crobat in GSC

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        See when I was playing HG last year I didn’t have a problem getting my Crobat. This time it’s gonna be an up hill battle lol

    • Ultron

      Just ride around a bunch on your bike

  • Not a single team member of mine has evolved but they’re still fucking up everything that comes their way

    I really can’t wait for BW to get remade. I’m pretty excited to see what they can do with the region in full 3d. Playing through Black has been great so far (even tho I’m only at Castelia).

    • Butter Geek

      We’ll probably have to wait until around 2023 for that

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Or later honestly haha It’ll be worth the wait tho. BW are just very quality games. Aside from the story they’re just fun to play. Plus they introduce a bunch of quality of life features that are a must have for the series now like the ability to use TMs multiple times

  • Well for Starters I decided to do instead what I call a reboot. Forgetting all knowledge I have of it and instead an playing it by ear
    So here’s my team after Striaton Gym and the Dream Yard https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c4d19997dc3f48a0092c430d7d856b2f1765ee9eb4eb3fbf02a9659a03635b56.jpg

      Pansage is cool. You have 2 12.5% females, which could be considered lucky if you were trying for those.

      • Yeah Boinky I thought was just luck and Ginger was a big suprise to me

        • Monkeyfuzz

          I remember trying ages for a female Panpour but couldn’t get one so I ended up getting bored and using carrotcoaster instead.

    • Sometimes I really do question if you guys (Excluding Monkeyfuzz)
      Really just don’t care about what I do with my playthrough’s or if you just don’t see them.

      • try naming one of your pokemon “cumlord”

        that usually gets people’s attention

    • Bae Nijima

      Star and Seraph comment on eachother’s because they’re basically internet brother and sister and I don’t comment on anyones because the act of playing Pokemon doesn’t really interest me rn. Plus it’s not too busy it’s not too much people seeing it

    • Bae Nijima

      The ‘old…’ is actually them referring to how Pokemon hasn’t meaningfully changed in forever

  • Pikmin 4 will be featured in the next Nintendo Direct

    • Butter Geek

      Is your dad Reggie?

      • Yes.
        Also Nintendo Force Magazine mentioned it which means that the press knows about it

    • Ultron

      I would really like that

  • Ultron

    So my mother lost my DS case, which had nearly every single pokemon game in it as well as ocarina of time, majoras mask, and a Link between worlds. I’m so upset and I’m on medicine that makes me moody so I’m even more mad/sad. Those games are such a huge chunk of my life. I really hope the case turns up

    • It will you just need to be patient. If I had a dollar for every time I lost my DS case I could buy 2 more Pokémon games at regular price.

      • wtf dude how do you lose it that easily? I always put my 3DS back in the same 2 places when I’m done

        • EarthenWarrior

          i NEVER let anyone touch my game cases EVER, and i always make sure that it returns to my desk or night stand

        • People keep touching and moving my stuff. Or I leave it somewhere and can’t remember exactly whete

      • Ultron

        I have misplaced it before but idk emotionally I’m a mess rn lol

    • EarthenWarrior

      you will find it, it will turn up

      • Ultron

        I hope so. I’m worried she somehow put it in the Christmas decorations box because they took everything down the other day..which would mean I’ll have to dig through everything

        • EarthenWarrior

          well it may come down to that and by law your mother has to help sort through it, it will turn up i mean it didn’t leave the house right

          • Ultron

            I don’t recall ever taking it put of the house. I haven’t really left let the house recently other than for work alone left with a need to bring my ds

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Lost in your house? If so you’ll find it. Just gotta keep looking.

      • Ultron

        Yeah, but my mom has tendency to throw things out. I don’t think she would, but who knows

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Oh that’s scary. My mom used to be like that too (my dad still is) It was always a gamble when I was growing up and I never knew if something was lost or it if was in the garbage. It’s never done maliciously, but when it happens it’s never good

    • Monkeyfuzz
      • Ultron

        Are you trying to tell me I need to let go of the past like Andy did with his toys? ;-;

        Also I’m pretty sure Woody says, “so long, partner”

        • let the past die

          kill it if you have to

          • Ultron

            Omg this quote was going through my head

          • that quote is so good

    • Bae Nijima

      Trust me, I’m far worse at losing stuff but it always shows up in the end. The best way to go about it is try to calm down as much as possible or just wait until you’re less emotional because then you can think about finding it more clearly

      • Ultron

        I have to be on this medicine for 6 more months x-x but I’m slowly calming down. All my important stuff is on Ultra Sun which is safely in my DS.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    How in the world did Ash, Misty, and Brock get lost so many times when more often than not when they were in the woods they were traveling down a straight clearly marked path? It’s not like they are ever shown just walking in the middle of the forest where there’s no path. So how in the word can they get lost?

    • Ultron

      Because they didn’t let misty be the navigator

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Pretty sure she got them lost once too tho lol They should have had Nami from OP be their navigator

        • Ultron

          I’m pretty sure she does get them lost in johto or something lol. It might be that hoothoot episode or something

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I’m actually watching that episode right now! So far she hasn’t got them lost. It was Ash actually…….Even still I’m sure you’re right that she gets them lost in Johto at some point. It’s just that it’s usually Ash so I can’t remember haha

          • Ultron

            Honestly there are some really good episodes sprinkled throughout the first two regions. There’s an episode that I think is called Ignorance is Blissey that you’ll get to about Jessie’s past that’s actually one of my favorites. You’ll have to let me know if Misty does get them lost sometime haha

      • Bae Nijima

        But it’s hard to see when it’s Misty

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Booooooooo get off the stage!

    • That is odd how they got lost though I remember Bulbasaur and the hidden village they were actually in the middle of no where

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        On occasion they’ll actually be in the middle of nowhere, but most of the time they travel paths in the forest and it doesn’t make sense

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Ash is always in front, he’s a moron.

  • Bae Nijima

    So, what are you all most excited for and dreading this coming year?

    • Shadow of the Colossus Remake. Always wanted to play it
      Starbomb 3
      New NSP album
      Prime 4? ;3
      Smash for Switch? ;3
      ya girl’s goona drive yo

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Wouldn’t count on Metroid

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Some switch games like Fire Emblem and Octopath traveler, Pokemon news. And in regards of movies nothing much just the Han Solo movie really :I

    • Excited: Kirby Star Allies, Finishing all my Pokémon for Howlite version (added like 40 last night due to watching a lot of idea giving movies), Any Pokémon TCG pre-releases will be good, staying true to my New Year’s resolution to curse less, Pokémon the movie 2018, possibly any other new games I may like coming

      Dreading: Hmm my father is probably going to prison for most of it, political things and probably other small miscellaneous stuff

      Seems good outweighs the bad this time in quantity, but not as much in quality

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Uh, why prison?

        • He accidentally bumped someone going down the road on his way to work and then sped off, but afterwards the guy lost control of their car and it crashed into a school bus

          Though his sentence should be 18 months to 2 years and with good behavior be out in less than a year.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Seems more like the other guys fault mostly. Shouldn’t have sped off but prison seems harsh.

          • Agreed, but things will turn out alright

            Its more dreading because that means I won’t see him as much and when I do it’ll be visiting him there

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Are you sure it will be a prison sentence he gets?

          • Yeah because he is guilty and they can confirm he’s guilty, but there are always other substitutes that could happen. like its always possible he might get House arrest instead

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I guess it depends on the severity of what he did. Well hope for the best outcome

          • Ultron

            Oh wow, that super sucks, dude.

          • Yeah won’t be a crowning moment in my life, but I’ll survive

          • Ultron

            It seems like he didn’t mean harm by it though. At least he wasn’t out intentionally hurting people

          • Yeah if he was doing it out of anger or spite then I’d be more angry then upset about it. Good thing none of the kids are still in critical condition (One did go to the ER over it, but from what I remember they are fine now)

      • Bae Nijima

        I’m glad you have things to look forward too even with the incarceration. I’m sure you’ll both get through it though. People make mistakes, sometimes against their will, and it sucks but sometimes life just does suck

        • True, its a good thing I’ve had a long while to process and prepare for this so I have a much more positive attitude then what I usually would have

        • I’m ready to see best girl Ann (fight me) dance, and I’m curious what alt costumes they’ll put in (Crossing my fingers one of them are the DAN DLC Costumes in P5)

    • MenacingCascoon

      Hmmmm Smash Switch honestly

        Dreading, tuition and all this studyingand work

    • Luigi301

      most excited for FE switch. dreading pokemon switch being kanto because people will get angry that its not sinnoh remakes. dreading pokemon switch being sinnoh remakes because nobody will shut up about it afterwards lol

  • EarthenWarrior

    The mighty Earthen grows bored……do i feel like doing Master Mode Vah Naboris or do i start looking for Kakiriko Village and start that

  • i swear you guys my 2017 Games Reviews will be out by February I gotta finish Hollowknight and playthrough Persona 5 but it’s comin’

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Lol you can take the time you want, especially if they’re long reviews :p

    • It’ll take a while considering you’re gonna play Persona 5 and that’s 80-100 hours long. It’s so worth it tho

      • I may actually leave it out just so I can get the rest out. i will review it separately

  • Monkeyfuzz
    • Bae Nijima

      I’m gonna Axew a question. How long did it take?

      • EarthenWarrior

        *Smack you up the head*

        • Bae Nijima

          Hopefully I won’t get a bone Fraxure

      • Monkeyfuzz

        A while, but at least I didn’t Haxorus a cheating device.

    • MenacingCascoon

      Man oh man you hatching shiny after shiny. Glad the magikarp method is working for you! I may need to try it some day…
      So do you get the shiy magikarp look at the IVs and then choose a pokemon based off it? Or do you already know whch pokemon youre doing next?
      And How do you always get IV missing atk/spA? That’s like perfect luck

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Actually I was breeding Aipom for this and since I save fairly often when this came up I switched it then. For the method I just get the Magikarp/whatever then try one of the ‘mon I’ve been wanting a shiny of. I try doing egg rejections to re-roll IVs or the ability etc if they aren’t what I want. I’ve actually had more not be in the right place or one of the ‘wild’ IVs is lower than I’d like instead of perfects. Oh and I have always bred the parent of the shiny Pokemon I’m going for in advance to the point where it has the IV spread I want on the shiny, as well as a Male foreign Pokemon I’ve traded for with similar IVs and hope for the best.

  • Ughhhhh, I just want to watch Ep 122 of DBS, why does Crunchyroll have to be down?

  • Two things before I go to bed

    First that guy Logan Paul sounds like real arse, hope he gets kicked off

    And secondly, I just proved I could never make it in the real world, because I had to call my dad and ask how to make my dinner because I didn’t understand how to use the microwave 😫

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Kurusu……The microwave? Come on man……….XD

      • I didn’t understand why it called it an oven… I have never heard it called a microwave oven in my life

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Omg hahaha my young child

    • Monkeyfuzz

      You are on the internet, could you not have looked up how to use it?

      • I couldn’t understand if it was the right thing to use because I’ve never seen it called a Microwave oven

  • Maple Seraphp
  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I think……maybe this is gonna be my team for my playthrough of Black. I’m not 100% sure tho. It’s certainly not exactly what I would have thought my team would be, but as I was playing around in the team builder I realized I’d need to be level headed about it and pick Pokemon so my team was relatively well rounded. Still enjoy this roster tho. We shall see how things go! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d64d06b444975051c6c9911185a102eb5ca896b216e4a82cd716fe82b9daef21.png

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Scrafty, Jellicent and Haxorus are great, can’t say I’ve used the others.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Cool. I’m a little iffy on Scrafty, but you can’t beat the type for this region. Should be an interesting build. I just gotta remember that I can get Axew just after Driftveil (I think?) I always forget that cave is there.

        • TheNintendoChip

          Yup! Just remember that you need Surf (which I don’t think you get until later)

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Yeah I’ll have to back track a little. You don’t get it until Twist MT and that’s after you beat Mistralton gym I believe

        • Monkeyfuzz

          What’s wrong with Scrafty? With Moxie as the ability, Drain Punch, Crunch, possibly Dragon Dance if you breed it, and plenty of other coverage it should do great. Unless you dislike the design?

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            There’s nothing inherently wrong with it. I’ve just never really felt a strong pull to it. Maybe after this I will tho

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I think you will, it’s a really cool Pokemon. Just be careful if you plan on using High Jump Kick.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Will prolly steer clear of Hi Jump Kick. It’s too risky of a move. Powerful sure, but is it worth it? I’m not so sure

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I guess it depends on how much you need its’ power. Drain Punch should see you through once you get the TM, you can always use Brick Break before that or even as well or I guess instead if you want. Maybe Rock Slide would be a useful coverage move.

  • Josh Omega

    https://youtu.be/01DQ0xHzWqg I really doubt this is real but I have to say I would love to have these games on the go! It isn’t out of the question at least since Activision hinted at it coming to other platforms in the future. Fingers crossed I guess! Oh and screw Logan Paul! And Jake Paul too they both suck!

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I highly doubt it, Crash has always been Playstation only afaik.

      • Ultron

        Actually no. I thought so too, but apparently there were crash games on xbox 360 and wii.

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Oh, well then I guess it is possible, still don’t believe it until an official announcement which would have been made by now I think with the release date given.

          • Ultron

            Exactly. It probably would’ve already been on Xbox one. But I think the thing is that the games that the N sane trilogy are remastering were all Playstation Exclusive while the series didn’t become multiplat till later.

      • Josh Omega

        It used to be but it became multi platform after Activison got the rights. I hope it eventually comes to switch. Would love to have it on the go so much! All I can say is if it happens my need for a PS4 is going down a lot 😂 I just need KH3 to come to switch and for telltale to put all the walking dead seasons and I will be happy! And maybe a bioshock collection 🤔

      • Daedardus

        Activision bought Crash, they put up the trilogy on PS4 first, but they have all the rights to put it on Xbox or other consoles.

    • fake fake fakeeeeee

      • Josh Omega

        I know I rs most likely fake but still worth sharing lol that said I really hope it comes to switch eventually!

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So I’m trying to find a Scraggy with Moxie and I started thinking. In modern games is there even a place for the ability Shed Skin? With Amie/Refresh I feel like you don’t even need it anymore since the friendship effect does it already for you.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It’s useful for competitive where those things don’t count. In game I guess it’s nice to have even more of a chance to heal without using a turn on an item.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Ah yes I didn’t think about competitive. That makes sense I guess.

  • Josh Omega

    I seriously hope that Nintendo announced the direct date soon. I want my gaming news lol

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I want it so the fakes end and then we can get better or at least new fakes.

      • Josh Omega

        Same here although the *leaks* do tide it over some. That’s the reason I shared the likely fake crash video although I would LOVE it to be real. I would quite literally scream if it actually happened eventually lol

    • Ultron

      I want more info on Kirby and Yoshi :I

      • Josh Omega

        I am pretty confident that we will get Kirby’s release date at least! I plan to preorder a copy for me and as a very late Christmas present for my nieces! Yoshi is a maybe but I want more info as well!

        • Ultron

          I’m just happy that Kirby is coming so soon to the switch. It seems all the franchises really are making the jump. Rip 3DS

          • Josh Omega

            I haven’t really touched my 3ds since I got my switch lol once Pokémon comes to it and I can get my bank transferred that’s it lol

          • Ultron

            With USUM really being a huge disappointing closure to the 3DS, I really struggle to open the thing

          • Josh Omega

            Yeah it’s the first time I haven’t played a Pokémon game nonstop. Usually when I get a Pokémon game I can’t put it down with US I enjoyed it but overall I think I could have done without it.

  • Ultron

    Kirby is a franchise that could really serve to break free from the traditional platformer elements that it’s always been accustomed to. More exploration, less linear gameplay. A 3D Mario approach to the franchise

    • Josh Omega

      I wouldn’t mind a Kirby like that! Could be very interesting!

      • Ultron

        It would inevitably have a very Odyssey type feel to it, but really odyssey kind of borrowed some mechanics from Kirby with the inclusion of Cappy. Which is fine, I think Kirby could learn a lot from Odyssey/past 3D Mario

        • Josh Omega

          It would be a lot of fun that’s for sure!

    • As long as Kirby still looks the way he does I’m all for it

  • Josh Omega

    So predictions for 2018! Games I think that will come to switch this year!
    Pikmin 4 – Nintendo has pretty much hinted that they have been working on this for a while so it wouldn’t shock me if it comes this year. Maybe 1-3 comes to the eshop to hype it up?

    Metroid prime HD collection- pretty self explanatory metroid prime 4 probably won’t be out until 2019 at least in my opinion and this would be a great way to hype up 4 and could get people who haven’t played the prime games ready as well!

    Animal crossing switch- just a feeling that it will happen this year. Most likely late 2018 release

    Super smash Bros Switch- I have a feeling that this will be announced anytime. Could release in 2018 but may not happen until 2019

    Donkey Kong country switch- wouldn’t be surprised at all if this happens. I wish that Nintendo could get the rights back to the kremlings but I don’t see it happening unfortunately

    Pokémon switch- not entirely sure on this but it wouldn’t shock me if this is the big release for this year! If not this year early 2019 is likely

    • Josh Omega

      Would love other people’s predictikns! Going to add some things I want as well!

      Luigi’s mansion switch- please Nintendo

      Digimon world/story Switch – yeah I am fan of both Pokémon and digimon lol

      Bioshock collection switch- I would love to have these games on the go

      Mega man legends 3- capcom stop toying with us and give us this game already for all the consoles.

      • Holy crap, I’m not the only Pokemon and Digimon fan here. Also, Persona 5 on Switch.I highly doubt Mega Man Legends 3 is coming at this point.

        • Josh Omega

          I have some slight hope since capcom is releasing megaman 11 in new art style as well as all the x games coming to every console. That said my hopes and very low lol like 1% low. and yep I am a huge fan of both! Also I really need to look up persona 5 haven’t watched its gameplay yet since I can’t get it lol

  • Josh Omega

    Something I forgot to post a few weeks ago. The outlast games are coming to switch this year! Have wanted to play these games for a while now so I will definitely pick them up! Wouldn’t be surprised if they talk about it in the direct some since it’s supposed to release first quarter this year. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2d37f4b06291e1b0a37b19ed4a47793a14cb2d288efaad9d93344fbd902b818f.jpg

    • Congrats man on your White Demon Coconut 😀

  • Butter Geek

    Yall are playing Black/White, so I decided to finish my B2 playthrough. My team: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/dbefee15d845a5f3e8599a48214bf6dab89a04fe3d00c838a72adee9f2e4b9a0.jpg

      Creative nicknames

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I wish that Beheeyem advised you to get these Pkms better nicknames 😛

      • Butter Geek

        thanks…

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Have you enjoyed using this team?

      • Butter Geek

        It’s allright, pretty fun to use.

        • Seems like a fun team. How have you enjoyed using Audino?

          • Butter Geek

            Attract and Secret Power are fun to use on her

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Swanna I would have as a HM user but never had it as an actual battling team member, is it good?

          • Butter Geek

            yeah, pretty good

  • Maple Seraphp

    Finally changed up the name of that one edgy fakemon I had.
    Flagrahan rolls off the tongue decently and it’s more descriptive of what the hell the mon is

    • Maple Seraphp

      Conflagration- Dullahan

    • Butter Geek

      What is that mon?

  • UnburdenedLegume

    OMGGGGGGGG DRAGON BALL SUPER WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MEEEEE

    • Reece

      I just wanna know how it’s all gonna end – especially seeing as there’s only like 9 minutes left (although we all know how it’s gonna end and who’s gonna be victorious)

      • UnburdenedLegume

        I wanna know whats gonna happen with Vegeta man. I hope he gets UI but knowing Toriyama doesnt particularly like Vegeta, i doubt it,

        End of the day, Goku will steal the spotlight anyway, as always

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Goku is the main character, of course he will.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Vegeta is a main character too

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Yes but the series is mostly about Goku, he was there from the beginning after all. There was a point where it was meant to shift to being about Goten iirc from the Buu arc but it didn’t happen.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Genuinely havent even seen Goten yet in Super (i missed a few episodes tho) GT isnt even canon anymore lol

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I know that, Buu is Z not GT though, he was also barely in GT.

  • Team Update for me
    No Nacrene City Badge yet, but I caught Bubbles the Tympole. Oh and Ears the Audino, but she’s boxed up

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3ee7375a627c1a77489d53d606aa6fe2e3fd7a77355ab6890cb64bb77a0882b1.jpg

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Oh yeah Tepig evolves at level 18. You keeping most of these on your team?

      • I might switch Pupper and Moon, but the rest most likely will stay (Unless I find a better Electric type)

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Well there’s Eelektross and Galvantula you could find more useful.

          • I might switch to Galvantula

            And I also might switch Moon for Elgyem later on (Always wanted to use it, but then again I’ve never used a lot of Unova Pokémon)

            And I also might use Escaviler or Accelgor in place of Pupper if I can get White2 to help me out

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Hmm, you would then have 2 Bug types don’t forget.

      • Oh and Ginger I’ve decided I’m going to wait till at least level 22 or 25 to evolve because at one of those levels it learns Seed Bomb

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Good idea. What nature is she? A physical or mixed set could work, you’ll likely want to teach her Rock Slide.

  • EarthenWarrior

    so does everyone have Unova fever or something?

    • I think so
      I also wanted to have a more memorable team from BW1

    • UnburdenedLegume

      3rd best region just had a crappy anime

      • Monkeyfuzz

        What annoys me most is how many great Pokemon from the region may never get to have another major appearance in the anime, so they are stuck with whatever bad episode they were in to showcase them.
