    Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl - Release 2021

    Sun and Moon Battle Tree: Everyone and their grandma have access to keystones. Mega Stones are easy enough to supply for sale. Considering Let's Go had Mega Evolution too, story lore can easily be thrown out the window.

    Pokemon Presents - 26th Feb 2021

    Is there any place were the recently leaked gameplay can be posted? I wanted to see other people's thoughts on it.

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    It was me. While on Duraludon rivalries, remember when people thought Tyranitar was going to be its main rival in-game, with the official site saying the two Pokemon share the same habitat? Meanwhile in-game, Tyranitar is a Shield exclusive with the only trainer that uses one is Gordie, a Sword...

    SPOILERS! Mysteries and Conspiracies of Pokemon

    :ss/Hatterene: :ss/Grimmsnarl: The Hatterene and Grimmsnarl lines feel like they were suppose to be version exclusives, with Hatterene being in Shield and Grimmsnarl in Sword. They're found in similar areas (Motostoke Outskirts, Glimwood Tangle, Lake of Outrage), there's a trade in Stow-on-Side...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Got any video, cause I never even heard of that, but as a Sinnoh fan, I can feel you. Between slow game speed, God Arceus, Dom Cynthia, and lack of Fire types, Sinnoh discussion runs out of things to say way too fast unless you want to delve deeper.

    Custom #Pokémon25 Survey & Discussion

    General Pop Culture Osmosis, i.e. just passive learning, but I have a hazy memory watching Jirachi: Wish Maker in a hospital as my earliest encounter. Diamond sometime in 2007. Battle Revolution before I played Diamond. It being lackluster without a game was the reason I got into Pokemon. Games...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    It's obviously a Cheer Captain Julia reference. (Funny thing is that Reborn had Julia way before S/M was even conceived, with a later update making Oricorio her signature.) Pokemon definitely gets inspiration from pop culture, even past Gen 1. You would think a drum set playing gorilla from the...

    Unpopular opinions

    I will say that after learning that Gold/Silver were developed as direct sequels to Gen 1, more like Black 2/White 2, more of Johto's flaws like overabundance of Kanto Pokemon, Lance being essential halfway through the Adventure, and the low level curve, make more sense. Still don't like Gen 2...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    :Gengar-Mega: :Kangaskhan-Mega: :Sableye-Mega: +20 to defense wouldn't to be too crazy for :Gardevoir-Mega: , +20 attack feels like it was added either for added confusion recoil or for heat like Pixilate Double-Edge if you bothered to transfer it from Gen 3.

    Mega Gardevoir gains +20 attack, a stat it shouldn't be increasing at all. Those stat boosts should have went to speed or even defense. In contrast, Mega Gallade gets a boost in attack, defense, and speed, stats it should be increasing.

    Anything for early game Larvesta.

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Vultures and Buzzards are known for having extremely potent stomach acid and for vomiting when feeling threatened, making Mandibuzz one of the few non-Poison types to make sense learning Toxic. Umbreon should still learn Toxic though, if the dex entries are going to keep bringing up its...

    Your Favorite Theme in Pokemon?

    I already brought up battle gene M as my favorite Cynthia remix, but the Ruby/Sapphire and Black/White OSTs brought two more insane remixes. The use of in-game sound effects really elevate the chaotic nature of the songs.

    Pokemon that disappointed you in-game despite looking good initially?

    Don't forget about the DLC areas and their dens. I had some fun with an early Exeggutor from the Isle of Armor, and there's an Ice Stone in the Path to the Peak in the Crown Tundra. Ghost types destroy any sense of danger thanks to their innate guaranteed escape ability.
