  1. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl - Release 19th Nov 2021

    I genuinely feel like the creators of these games are totally oblivious to what fans want. Pokemon has ALWAYS been a series that has suffered from poor QoL choices and mechanic implementations. The IV/EV system, Hidden Power, antiquated mechanics, single-use TM's, HM's, etc. have always felt...

    Disagreed on Cress. Cress is a decent Trick-Scarfer in tandem with its version of Healing Wish. It's a good lure and a essentially a bulkier version of Healing Wish Latias.

    How do you think BDSP are going to handle Unknown and Hidden Power? Will HP ever return as we knew it?
  6. Most Generation PRNG Help / Information

    I noticed something unusual today when attempting a method K RNG in HGSS for stationary legends. I booted up RNG reporter to re-attempt an RNG from the night prior that I was unable to catch before Moltres struggled. The time finder window indicated this particular seed of 820F082E had a...

    If you're RNG'ing Entei/Raikou in HGSS can you RNG them the first time you beat the E4? Or does it have to be the round 2 rematches?

    + AgiliGross + Koko Screens So, I really like using unconventional wincons, and I also really like using Screens HO. I decided to try Weakness Policy Agiligross expecting a total meme but instead I got a surprisingly potent and unexpected chad. You set up screens and rocks, and after a little...

    The North American Magearna QR Code has been removed from Pokemon's Official website. Does that mean Magearna obtained after the fact from the NA QR code listed on serebii are "illegitimate"?

    According to the smogon useage stats for last month roost is the most used form of recovery on Mew, shortly followed by Softboiled. In fact, Recover isn't even listed in Mew's top 20 moves, so wouldn't a Lati w/Recover make it less susceptible to this Imprison strat?

    I absolutely think Dragapult is top tier, but not broken at all. One of the trickiest things about Pult right now is figuring out which set its running. It used to be you could safely assume specs 70% of the time but now DD and Sub sets are becoming more and more common. While this has...

    Team Balanced squad based around SD Blaziken w/Protective Pads and Specs Gar. This team is big pivot to keep momentum and constantly establish favorable matchups. This team struggles with Volc.

    Hi I'm trying to Stationary RNG the Uxie outside of the museum in Black 2. It's very frustrating, becasue I think the NPC's are messing with the starting frame. Does anyone know off the top of their heads how many frames the NPCs affect the starting PIDRNG frame?
