    Ye Olde Trade Shoppe (10/12: Absolutely Certainly 100% Not Dead, I Promise)

    The trade thread's open again! I overreacted hard to the dex cut announcement and basically tried to cut Pokemon out of my life entirely. Clearly that didn't pan out because, well, here we are, but I think I just needed some time away from the franchise to realize that I still enjoy it for what...

    Let's Play! Blitz fights his way through corruption in XG: NeXt Gen (A Pokémon XD hack)

    This seems like a really interesting hack. Do the future-gen moves and custom shadow moves have their own animations?

    Ye Olde Trade Shoppe (10/12: Absolutely Certainly 100% Not Dead, I Promise)

    I've been way too busy to breed or trade as of late, sorry :(

    With the focus on Dynamaxing being limited to 3 turns, I almost wonder if you'll be prevented from switching out a Dynamaxed Pokemon. I would dislike the mechanic a lot less if that were the case, since it would make it a significant investment compared to the almost-always-immediate Mega...

    Corviknight definitely looks like a final evolution, possibly the earlygame bird. In which case it gets to join Staraptor and Talonflame in the earlygame-birds-that-are-actually-good club.

    Legendaries flavour text: Zacian: "Its shining blade can cut through anything." Zamazenta: "Its gleaming shield can turn back any attack." This is a clear reference to the story of the arms merchant who claimed to have both a sword that could pierce any shield, and a shield that could stop...

    Pokemon Sword & Shield Discussion RD: 15/11/2019

    Just watched the Direct! I was going into this cautiously optimistic, but I now genuinely think that Sword and Shield will be some of the better games. What most caught my attention is the overworld - we have confirmation that the camera will be freely controllable, and while this isn't...

    What are your thoughts on the Pokemon fanbase?

    I'd like to give my two cents as a VGC player. In Pokemon's official competitive format, just like Smogon formats and every other competitive game, there are certain strategies and options (in this case, certain Pokemon) that are significantly more viable than others. Naturally, people who hope...

    Ye Olde Trade Shoppe (10/12: Absolutely Certainly 100% Not Dead, I Promise)

    Been awhile, but I've finally had some time to breed a few new Pokemon. Buneary, Minccino, Roselia, and Chimchar have been added to breedables!

    Pokemon: Detective Pikachu ( Movie )Discussion Thread

    I give the movie a solid 7/10. The plot, while overall cohesive, has times where it doesn't make much sense, and some of the acting could certainly be better. That said, the Pokemon animations were fantastic, and Ryan Reynolds as Pikachu alone makes the movie worth seeing imo.

    Pokemon seen in the trailer (and presumably therefore in the game) are the starters, Pikachu, Minccino, Lucario, Tyranitar, Wishiwashi, Hoothoot, Grubbin, Munchlax, Zweilous, Flygon, Wailmer, Meowstic, and their evolution lines.

    Pokemon Sword & Shield Discussion RD: 15/11/2019

    I'm pleasantly surprised by this direct! I was expecting not much more than the game titles, but we actually got solid information. I love the region already. Looks like it'll be pretty linear, but it'll be interesting to see what they do with it. Not going to lie, all of the starters look a...
