    (Little) Things that annoy you ALL gens (But not the USUM bits of Alola)

    Why do physical event distributions still exist? You'd think The Pokémon Company would wise up at the worldwide spread of the games and just use online codes like some of their events but nah, let's limit the event to like 20 countries at best!

    So, the locations in Latin America for the Dialga and Palkia events were announced and... I dunno why I'm still surprised, but I won't be able to get them. I know, I know, there's trading but when it comes to events it simply does not feel the same. Mexico - Best Buy Chile - Zmart Peru -...

    ... or perhaps the rooster is actually Torchic. That quote does not exactly state that the whole chinese zodiac had Pokemon representatives by Gen II, just that Piloswine was created because of the Pig.

    Perhaps the Elite Four wants to be sure you've not been slacking off and that you are ready to accept challenges?

    Best Luck in Pokémon

    A few weeks ago I was going to breed Treeckos to make a team based on the one I used to beat Alpha Sapphire (except as competitively viable as possible). I got a 29/X/31/30/31/30 Treecko with HP Fire from the very first Egg I got.

    Data Pokemon Sun/Moon Battle Mechanics Research

    So this means "Super Luck + Move with higher chance to crit" is no longer a guaranteed crit, right? Seeing that's quite the gimmick (instead of, say, Z-Tailwind + Move with higher chance to crit or Focus Energy + Scope Lens, which are unaffected by this), it's no wonder it went unnoticed all...

    SPOILERS! Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon In-Game Tier List

    ... assuming you play Ultra Sun. Cubone should get separate rankings depending on the game thanks to Totem Alolan Marowak not being available in Ultra Moon. (As should Salazzle, but the differences are less extreme)

    Adding on to what was said before, take into account that, while the Choice Scarf is a +50% Speed boost, it´s not a "+1" boost. It does not cancel the -1 Speed. Depending on rounding, a Pokemon that is at -1 Speed and then uses a move like Dragon Dance can be 1 point faster than the same...

    (Little) Things that annoy you ALL gens (But not the USUM bits of Alola)

    More of a personal gripe, but the inability to get a Reckless Starly in anyone of ORAS, SM or USUM. I wanted to go and train one yesterday until I realized I have no means to get it. Why can't Island Scan Pokemon call for help? :(

    Detective Pikachu (Possible Spoilers)

    Nintendo's attempts to keep the 3DS line alive even though all other devs have moved to the Switch. I may consider getting this game... now, I found something weird about the spanish version... because the trailer wasn't dubbed - it's just a subbed version the english trailer with some of the...

    I assume it's also because there's a bunch of switch-ins that this set cannot beat that you'd want to burn much more than poison (say, Tyranitar). Sludge Wave having a third of Bomb's poison chance reduces the possibilities of inflicting the wrong status.

    And then even in lower grades the randomness can be harmful. I spent several days in Rank 3 because of a Sableye that was constantly haxing its way through me, and then again in Rank 8 because the game couldn't offer anything better than a STAB-less Zoroark... (seriously, what's with this game...

    Perhaps Blacephalon's largest drawback for a set like that is its lack of Solar Beam. Had it got such a move, it could have some kind of utility as a move that would make Tyranitar flee like it's never done before (I remember Ninetales using a set like that in BW). But nope, just HP Grass.

    SPOILERS! Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon In-Game Tier List

    As well as the fact that in Ultra Sun you can get an underleveled Totem Alolan Marowak, which even with the effort to get the necessary Stickers is far and away better than getting one the old-fashioned way because it actually has good STABs without the need of tutors, especially Shadow Bone...

    (Little) Things that annoy you ALL gens (But not the USUM bits of Alola)

    It's still strange that some event Pokemon need to have their signature moves taught through Move Tutors. It's not like these tutors have literally any other purpose beyond that. Why not adding them to the Pokemon's level-up movepool, then? I mean, there have been a few examples of Pokemon...

    I doubt so... the easiest way to check is to throw Dusk Balls at the non-legendary Pokemon that spawn when they are at full health, and see what happens.

    (Little) Things that annoy you ALL gens (But not the USUM bits of Alola)

    Apart from the completely random nature of the Roto Loto (I stopped using it as I was getting too many discount powers), what I don't like about it is the fact the hints it gives are rather... poorly programmed. There's not one playing session where Rotom goes "Hey, it's been a while and I...

    SPOILERS! Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon In-Game Tier List

    I think the Wormhole legendaries and Ultra Beasts should be ranked. While the former are rather difficult to get until you get the hang on the controls, they are in a position similar to Emerald Rayquaza (cover legendary that is caught at a higher level than the final main story battle), except...

    Well, that's not exactly a good example. All they'd have to do is change the Egg Group numbers on them, but for some reason they don't want to. For some reason, they didn't do it when moving to Gen III and rewriting the entire game from scratch.
