    Unpopular opinions

    This is the unpopular opinions thread, so...Ice sucks thanks to bring a mediocre defensive typing and Pokemon who aren't built to use their type well, and I kind of hope it stays that way. Their existence is a side effect of having Ice moves in the game.

    Unpopular opinions

    I don't think that gen 2 and 3 count in this list tbh, at least for the 7 badges requirement. In Gen 2 I would think the pairing of the Rocket Hideout in Mahogany and the Radio Tower+Underground (treated as one entity) would be closer to what you said. For RS I would say the Lilycove...

    Serious 2020 Democratic Candidates Discussion

    I haven't read any of the posts but I've been keeping up with politics for awhile. The concern here is that there are so many different candidates here that any infighting between them could amplify fractures in the Democratic voter base (this is what happened between Bernie & Hillary and helped...

    Unpopular opinions

    I don't like the majority of the remixed HGSS music. There seems to be something lacking in some of the tracks (energy might be the thing in my opinion). Take the regular trainer battle theme (the one you spend the majority of the game listening to). It seems to be all over the place to me...

    Pokemon Sword & Shield Discussion

    Can't believe there's no starter poll on this topic. How else will we determine the starter everyone is most excited for?

    Pokemon Sword & Shield Discussion

    Do a side by side comparison of Chespin and fire bunny. It's really come across as cookie cutter/too many resemblances. Needless to say I'm not blown away by any of the designs.

    Ahem... "I...AM...GROOKEY!" Actually Grookey=Sobble>>Scorbunny (I really don't care for Scorbunny's design) Aside from tha the region looks beautiful

    Your Favourite Place (Route, City, etc.) in Pokemon

    I just had to do a double take because I don't think anyone mentioned any of the routes or cities in the north of Johto except for Ecruteak City (including the route with the Moomoo Farm, Lake of Rage, etc). For now, I'll discuss one because I think it's a doozy: Johto Route 44 is a really neat...

    Your Favourite Place (Route, City, etc.) in Pokemon

    There's only 2 good things about Paniola Town: 1) You have Magmar acting as staff for a local hotel. That's amazing 2) If you feel lucky you can try fishing in the southwest pond for Barboach (not exactly the strongest Pokemon but is cool in of itself) Edit: I am convinced the developers said...

    What are your thoughts on the Pokemon fanbase?

    Pokemon's fanbase is pretty good. People have had the exposure to know what it is, and whether they like it or not. However, when you have something new coming along trying to prove itself with a big following and memes, there's an intense pressure being exerted on those not familiar with it by...

    Your Favourite Place (Route, City, etc.) in Pokemon

    Solaceon Town is another location that I admire. In Pokemon DPPt we typically think of all the bustling and large cities (Jubilife, Veilstone and Hearthome for instance). Solaceon, on the other end of the spectrum, is a quaint little town with a laid back attitude (one of the NPCs says "howdy...

    Best Pokémon distribution?

    Platinum does the best job of distribution, no contest. D/P lacked diversity (the infamous examples of 2 available Fire types only of you pick Chimchar, and Gym Leader/Elite Four teams that don't share a common type being 2 major red flags). In addition, many older Pokemon that got evolutions in...

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Smash 5 SPOILERS btw)

    I'm hoping Jiggles is fixed, as she's been my character I mained in 64, co-mained in Melee, initial mained in Brawl and first char I tested in Sm4sh. And my other mains who were washed out (Young Link and Wolf) are back. So I'm testing these chars, Ryu (Sm4sh main) and Daisy pronto. I'm...

    Pokémon Let's Go! - Pikachu and Eevee

    The " time+resources" argument is one I see a lot in Smash, when they talk about x character taking up a so-called "slot" that could've been used for character y instead. We don't see the development side and make assumptions of the development as a result. I think GF has had plenty of time and...

    Pokémon Let's Go! - Pikachu and Eevee

    Not really...having nothing to show for this year is bad, especially for such a lucrative franchise and insatiable fanbase. You know how up in arms people were waiting for any announcement? I do. Also, I'm not the one suggesting Game Freak only gave the 2019 announcement because they felt they...
