    Cheers, all. Welcome to the Past Gens Research Thread. Links to the most recent research threads of each of the older generations are compiled below as a handy resource. I don't expect this thread to see much use, but there are still potentially mechanics that need to be researched, and as such, it's best to consolidate it. There are a few ground rules, however~

    Don't use this thread for simple questions. We have an SQSA for that. You can ask mechanics-related questions, but look to see if they've already been answered in the older research threads. "How does X move work?" is not a good question. "Does X move still function in Y condition?" is a much better one. Be specific.

    This is not a discussion thread. We don't need to chat about how mechanics affect a metagame. We have plenty of other threads here for that sort of thing. Only post if you have a question concerning a game mechanic or if you are answering a question.

    Don't test mechanics on simulators. It should go without saying, since the simulators are based off our research. When testing, in-game is the preferred method and the best possible source. Please cite how you tested any mechanics or where you found any answers.

    This is only for past gens. Duh, that's in the title. XY research is here :P
