  1. SPOILERS! "What Isn't A Pokemon Yet" Repository (+ Type Combinations & Super Forms)

    My intention wasn't to say "this is my idea for a Pokemon", I was just attempting to say what that kind of animal was most likely to be/what types seemed most apt if it was one. But fair enough. Nice try, but the Poliwag line doesn't match what I meant - sure the Pokedex tells us their skin is...
  2. Pokémon GO

    They're doing a Pidgey event soon, too (though that's also for the Flying Cup that's just been added to the GBL). Considering that it could have been literally any other Pokemon, it does seem like they're priming us. I imagine when the Crown Tundra is released there'll be some sort of event for...
  3. SPOILERS! "What Isn't A Pokemon Yet" Repository (+ Type Combinations & Super Forms)

    I was incredibly disappointed that Galarian Ponyta and Rapidash didn't end up being Fire/Fairy, which seemed a lot more logical - and interesting - than the by-now dull Fairy/Psychic they ended up being (come on Game Freak - we've had that typing multiple times now!). So I got to wondering if...
  4. Pokémon GO

    Apparently we're getting two guaranteed Deino from research that week.
  5. Pokémon GO

    Rather have Shinx than the absolute army of Absol and Feebas I've hatched.
  6. Pokémon GO

    What, you mean you haven't been hatching 100 5km and 2km eggs a week and very very very occasionally getting a 10km egg from a Pokestop which, one time in forty, hatches into a Deino or Axew with piss-poor IVs? Amateur.
  7. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Anyone else really weirdly love that they've started doing that with legends in recent dexes? Idk why I'm so fond of it exactly, but it's kind of fun that rather than shoving all the legendaries to the end in a massive list they split them up and disperse them a bit more. Zygarde gets plonked in...
  8. Unpopular opinions

    This has got me wondering how it'd be if the secondary story from HGSS - the player proving themselves worthy to encounter a legendary - was the sole focus of the game, without any antics from Team Rocket or any other group of evildoers being involved in the story at all.* Other elements could...
  9. Pokémon GO

    Damn. I was looking forward to getting my 3 cheap Remote Raid passes I wasn't going to use on Pinsir. My guess is they're still not ready to release Raid Invites yet and this was supposed to be the launch.
  10. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Holy crap, I've been wrong about what that move did for years. In my defence, I've been playing the game since before that move was even a thing and I don't think I've ever used it.
  11. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Yes, it's literally all there is but it's still a pro, which was my original point. I'm sure there must be something else. Yes it's largely a hindering ability but there's a positive effect, much as Hustle and Sheer Force both hinder and help. (Although it's obviously not nearly as useful) I...
  12. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Normalise is nowhere near on the same level. It's not stellar, but there are some aspects which can be utilised for strategy. I once saw a player paralyse a Garchomp with Thunder Wave, for instance. What I'm saying is that it has pros as well as cons. Stall has no pros that are readily...
  13. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    So this is something that's probably fully intended to annoy me, but goddammit I'm annoyed by it anyway. Why does Sableye have Stall? Both of its other abilities are far superior (and considering one of them is Keen Eye, that's quite an accomplishment). It doesn't have a major thematic link to...
  14. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Everyone and their aunt cousin uses Gyarados in HGSS. Three Dragonairs wasn't particularly diverse but it was bloody tough and the Ice-Fire-Electric triangle she had going on complemented Kingdra nicely. Nidoqueen, Meganium, Feraligatr, and Ampharos all are just as viable if Clair fancied aping...
  15. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Clair uses special moves (Dragonbreath, Dragon Pulse, Twister et al) to differentiate her from Lance, who uses physical moves like Dragon Rush and Outrage. That said, I remain baffled that the remakes gave her a Gyarados. Least-needed roster update EVER.
