    Ghost/Flying. I hope it is because it can function as another spinblocker in ubers, which is always nice.

    Spinda should totally get an evolution.

    I agree, but I don't like that evolution design. I think it should look something like this:

    Also, nothing XY related was confirmed in this week's Smash. Oh well

    I seriously doubt that they even remmember making Spinda in the first place, let alone give it an evo.

    Just look at Farfetche'd...

    They remembered Dunsparce in the new Mystery Dungeon game, so we still have hope.

    Spinda evo would probably end up being based on a giant panda anyway.

    Ghost/flying makes no sense. It's black, it's clearly a dark type.

    Anyone else think we're starting to talk in circles?

    I'd question if they'd really want to make a Spinda evolution. Remember, it has that special gimmick of having a near endless pool of spot combinations. Do they really want to recreate that on an evolution? And if they didn't recreate it, then Spinda would lose possibly the one thing that made it memorable.

    Everyone seems to be stressing over ruby/sapphire remakes. These make absolutely no sense to me. Sure, the same cycle has been going on for years now, but that all changed with BW2. The only main series games viable for remake are yellow, ruby, saphire, and emerald. SO, emerald is just an updated version of ruby and saphire. Yellow is still a main series game but has gotten just about zero attention from anyone.


    My conclusion from this would be that the remakes for Gen 6 will be Yellow and Emerald sold alongside each other. From an economic standpoint, this makes worlds more sense as many players would have incentive to get both games. I mean, no one buys both games just to get version exclusives. With Gen 3 cartridges starting to not tell time, and the rarity of Yellow cartridges, this makes alot more sense than just a boring old soulruby and heartsapphire. After we got BW2, Game Freak prettymuch threw the gen cycle out the window and anything could happen now.



    or im just a hallucinating retard and you should disregard all of that. meh.

    It's, uh, not very difficult to make that whole circle thing. The only requirements are a mono-color sprite.

    In any case, yes, we do want a Spinda Evolution. Even stats as mediocre as 90s all around give the lower tiers a usable spinner and the even lower tiers a spinner as well.

    Hell, with some luck, a 90 all spinda evo could make it decently high in OU if superpower is granted to it without stupid dw restrictions.

    That would be awesome as a sort of second quest, where all the enemies are extra powerful. It would at least give you something to do after the elite four.

    Enough people do buy both of a paired version. Not necessarily at the same time, but I venture a majority of Smogon's members own at least one version pair.

    More importantly, RemakeYellow and RemakeEmerald would be two different games, both requiring considerable work. If they were both remade, they would absolutely not launch simultaneously.

    All I want is a qwilfish evo. It could even be a split between an offensive lionfish and defensive stonefish. All are essentially real water poison types, and evolite intimidate qwilfish would be an awesome bulky spiker.

    I've often really hoped that this option could come about. It's really not that hard to do and, tbh, even if it's only in the battle tower, it would be pretty cool.
    However, the easiest way to do it is for the AI to expect STAB moves and switch whenever it fears one coming based on a certain chance (for example, it has garchomp vs. vanilluxe and, if a random integer from 0 to 2 is 2, it switches). Another thing that gf could do is up both the levels and the movesets of mons - ala challenge mode - but not make it extremely stupid to unlock in a game.

    I actually rather like this idea. Water/Poison is a good defensive typing that is relatively rare (barring Tentacruel). More viable Poison-types in OU (and perhaps Ubers???) would give a slight nerf to Fighting types (and I really want Poison to resist Water cuz it makes sense).

    That's just smogon or hardcore fans, though. Little kids (the "main" audience) aren't enticed to buy both versions, and if they are, their parents refuse to pay for basically the same thing. Like I said, it makes much more economic sense.

    I sure hope you're joking.

    On the topic of a Spinda evolution...

    I completely agree. Unlocking challenge mode probably isn't worth the inconvenience for most people. I wish/hope gamefreak includes assist/challenge mode from the get-go, considering numerous console games with a story mode allow that.

    Maybe we shouldn't even have to unlock difficulty modes, like oak will ask you "Are you a boy or a girl?" and then "Do like like an easy game, a challenge, or an impossible quest?"

    The one thing I really dislike about fan pokemon designs is that once they're made, they obviously will never be used/have a similarly designed pokemon actually created

    nintendo could get a lot of bad attention if it was found out one of their 'new' pokemon designs looked as if it borrowed heavily from some random fan art which existed prior. even if it was coincidental, nintendo could not prove it, and so they probably do their best to avoid it. or even some of the ideas for pokemon, like a ghost/grass type based on a stump I saw and really liked, have less of a chance to be implemented once they're created and spread across the internet.

    of course it would be impossible to find and avoid all fan designs, but they've likely seen those in some of the more popular mods.

    basically people need to stop taking their ideas away, I want a Jynx or Delibird evolution this generation but they won't do it if all of their designs have been taken! :(
