    Sticky Pokemon Direct - 6th June Discussion - Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

    Sorry, I somehow missed Dewgong in my list. It's been added. Dewgong is a prime candidate for an Alolan form, since Walrein overshadows it. EDIT: Really, all I want is a Bug/Dark Alolan Venomoth. The existing Alolan forms either added a type that was rare in the Kanto dex (Persian, Dugtrio...

    Sticky Pokemon Direct - 6th June Discussion - Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

    So, as a reminder, the 1st-gen Pokemon that are still "open" to getting Alola forms (they don't have a mega evolution or an evolution in a later gen, and also aren't in the Alola Pokedex) are: • Arbok • Nidoqueen • Nidoking • Vileplume • Venomoth • Victreebel (although it's available in Island...

    Discussion: Resistance Berries

    This is an oversimplification. If your Pokémon is taking Poison, Burn, Leech Seed, Hail, or Sandstorm damage, Focus Sash means you faint at the end of the turn. Additionally, it can't be used if you take damage coming in, either from a move, Stealth Rock, Spikes, etc. With a Berry, you may...

    Discussion: Resistance Berries

    Again, this assumes that you'll be switching in to take damage. If your previous Pokémon got KOed, Focus Sash and resistance berries become more useful. It depends on the kind of team you're building.

    DP Research Thread #2 ("New")

    I haven't calculated it, but from eyeballing the damage taken, it seems to work the same way in PBR, even if it shows both taking damage simultaneously. It's actually kind of annoying that it works this way in PBR, since you're able to glean less information about the relative speed of your...

    Discussion: Resistance Berries

    Sorry. It's just a pet peeve of mine. Boring is in the eye of the beholder. You may not find it boring that every turn involves a switch, but I do. It's as simple as that. I apologize for injecting my personal opinion into it. I agree that more prediction is better, but I honestly don't...

    Discussion: Resistance Berries

    If you're running a 'standard' team where you or your opponent is going to be switching every single round, then the resistance berries aren't going to do you a lot of good, since you're switching out of every attack that's effective. The resistance berries are best used when the extra turn...

    Acupressure and Psych Up go right through Protect. There's a Doubles team in the PBR single-player mode that capitalizes on this. One Pokémon Belly Drums. The next turn, when you try to finish off the weakened thing, it Protects and its partner Psych Ups the Attack boosts.

    Major League Gaming, GameBattles and Pokemon!

    You can set it to level 50, which is for all intents and purposes just as good. Users will simply have to tweak their HP EVs for the purposes of Subs, Leftovers, etc. Honestly, Smogon as a whole should move to L.50 battling as the standard. Nintendo is clearly moving in that direction...

    DP Research Thread #2 ("New")

    Snow Cloak prevents Hail damage to non-Ice types, just like Sand Veil prevents Sandstorm damage to non-Ground, Rock, and Steel types. This may have been posted earlier, but wasn't in the first page of either this thread or the old research thread.

    The Lagoon gives Tri Attack. I'll add it in to original post.

    PBR and the Power of Nature

    I wish that were true, and I agree that every arena should be tested (I'd do it now, but the TV is in use). Still, if the research on Secret Power is correct, no arena has Freeze as its added effect, so I doubt any of the arenas have Blizzard for Nature Power. That's an excellent point about...

    PBR and the Power of Nature

    Well, I tried all but three of them on my copy of PBR. The research thread has information on Secret Power and each arena correlates with an environment in D/P. Each arena that I tested had the Nature Power that correlated with its Secret Power, and I'm assuming the others for now until I have...

    PBR and the Power of Nature

    This thread is to discuss the viability of the move Nature Power on Pokemon Battle Revolution's Wi-Fi modes. As we know, in D/P's person-to-person battles, Nature Power can only become one move: Tri Attack. In PBR, however, the move that Nature Power becomes varies by arena. Lagoon -- Tri...

    Rest fails because of Insomnia. That's one of the reasons that Worry Seed is so cool. EDIT: I did some testing of Nature Power in PBR. It seems to treat the arenas in the same manner that Secret Power does. This is to say: Lagoon -- Tri Attack Gateway -- Hydro Pump Main Street -- Tri Attack...

    STAB Explosion (Lickilicky Discussion)

    Pokémon Center New York. They periodically give away Pokémon that have moves that they couldn't normally have. Rare stuff.

    STAB Explosion (Lickilicky Discussion)

    I don't think it's unfair. I just think it's probably banned on PBR Wi-Fi for the same reason that Shaymin and Arceus are banned: they're not legally available yet.

    [Warstory] - The Rise of the D.Knight

    This is a classic example of the 600 Club being overpowered. No Pokémon should have the power, defense, speed, typing, and movepool that Garchomp does. If it weren't for your Garchomp, this battle would have gone to your opponent.
