  1. Unpopular opinions

    I get the sense that replay value is a somewhat foreign concept for Game Freak, at least the Game Freak of today. The Pokemon games have a ton of variety in how a play through can go. Even choosing the exact same team of six Pokemon can vary due to IVs, EVs, natures, etc. In that regard, Pokemon...
  2. Unpopular opinions

    Granted, in older games watering the berries more would garner more berries in return, and some of the rarer berries needed a lot of watering just to get much out of them. However, I do appreciate the Poke Pelago's ability to just plant the berries and forget 'em, though you can leave Poke beans...
  3. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    You pronounce it the way a native Japanese speaker would, of course. Not that it would prevent any sort of arguing, because clearly someone's opinion can only ever be right and everyone else is just plain wrong on the internet...
  4. Unpopular opinions

    And the Nidorina/Nidoqueen example is comparatively generous. Want Shroomish to learn Spore before evolving? Hope you like missing out on all STAB Fighting moves. (and let's not forget it didn't learn Spore until level 54 in its debut generation) Want that Flare Blitz and Outrage on Growlithe...
  5. Simple Questions/Requests - Mark 49 (Minor Pokemon Trades, Item Requests etc GO HERE) (NO HACKING)

    You could just scan the QR Code for Magearna and get it that way... the QR Code doesn't expire. (sadly no such luck with Marshadow)
  6. Unpopular opinions

    I'm sure this isn't unpopular, but it wouldn't hurt if the Move Reminder was found earlier than at the League's doorstep. I wouldn't want to see being able to learn later moves now go away, and recognize that option being earlier would be VERY unbalanced, so... why not have two Move Reminders? A...
  7. Unpopular opinions

    They didn't really update them, but there's a side quest that will allow the player to have both bikes.
  8. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Those people have far too much time on their hands, honestly. What does it matter how a Pokemon's name is pronounced as long as it's close enough to recognize?
  9. Unpopular opinions

    Well... it's gotten an evolution or two every other gen since gen 2, so... maybe Eevee will see another evolution or two this time? I do agree that Eevee has more unique evolution methods than is really necessary. And maybe they could tie the Leaf and Ice Stones to Leafeon and Glaceon...
  10. Unpopular opinions

    Some of this has been addressed in more recent titles... to an extent. In gen 5, weather appears as an icon in the corner of the bottom screen, while gen 6 onward just has the weather visible in the background. And animations have generally sped up and removed the slight delays seen in Diamond...
  11. Little things you like about Pokémon

    Well... there was Feebas. Not a new Pokemon, of course, but because contests and contest stats were dropped entirely, a new method needed to be devised so players could evolve Feebas into Milotic. Now if only either Eevee could have used any snowy location to evolve into Glaceon or Crabrawler...
  12. Unpopular opinions

    But it wouldn't matter as much if more Ice types had more offense-oriented stats instead of trying to be defensive glaciers. Of course, since the typical Ice type isn't encountered until very late in the game, (and the Galar region looks like it'll be no different in this regard) it's unlikely...
  13. Unpopular opinions

    Ice doesn't need a buff. Game Freak needs to consider making more Ice types with stats that take better advantage of the type's offensive prowess. (i.e. aren't defensively oriented with all the speed of a glacier) It's unlikely to happen, though. (Vanilluxe was a step in the right direction, but...
  14. Unpopular opinions

    But OR/AS isn't RSE, for better or for worse. And you do technically face Courtney/Matt and a Magma/Aqua Grunt in a multi battle right in front of Lati@s, so I can kind of see where they're going with that. (aside from giving the player a Pokemon that can blast through the later half of the game...
  15. Event Discussion

    Some more details have been revealed about that Mewtwo distribution for Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee. It's level 70 and has a Quiet nature. I don't know why it's Quiet, but I suppose event collectors will go nuts for it anyway.
