  1. Monthly Art Contest 7!

    Special Boy I'm as happy as I'm going to be with this picture, to put things a bit too pessimistically. It's not strict, true monochrome, but I did stick to the same basic hue. Maybe that's worth a couple points? It was fun drawing again, thanks for the motivation. I could ramble on about...
  2. Monthly Art Contest 7!

    @Alchemator: Banning such elements of the metagame will only serve to balance things; which is not, in-and-of itself, a good thing. Before considering more bans, we need to properly define the characteristics of a desirable metagame. Inarguably, the listed aspects of our competition...
  3. Confused about feelings.

    As someone at a similar stage in life, I feel that I am both badly suited and appropriately suited to answer your question. While I do not mean to assume anything about you, I know that the voice I am about to present has been beneficial to me in the past. Caution yourself not in your...
  4. Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer - Read FAQ in First Post Before Asking

    Is it possible to transfer Pokemon from generation four to generation five? If so, how does this happen? Do all of their moves remain intact? Can they bring over a held item? Where can I find more information on this? In addition, where can I find information on breeding in Generation five?
  5. The Fysical Phitness Thread

    I'm overweight, and that's been a problem for me since Junior High. It's a psychological issue as well as a physical issue. This is my grade twelve year, and I'm really fed up with being fat. When I'm eighty, I want to be able to look back and say, "Well, I wasn't always old and fat."...
  6. Pokemon Black & White, aka Gen 5. Coming to Japan in Fall 2010.

    The absolutely sexy new look of this game has me drooling. Sprites are beautiful when properly mixed with polygons and effects. Generation Four started us down that path; it looks like G5 will finish the job. Moving sprites are also a high point, though I definitely hope they don't go over...
  7. The Pedarsag's Palace: Home of the RNG Pokedex

    I'm looking for Negator's redistributable Timid Latias, and you have it. Please check my thread for something in return. I also have a freshly hatched Careful Curse Lapras that I haven't added to my thread yet. I'm looking to trade asap, since you're online. Is that ok? Also, <3 Zuko, and...
  8. Most Generation PRNG Help / Information

    Thanks for your help, Xileh. I have to admit, I did try using the DPPt Egg PID method. And while calling Joey thirty times wasn't all that bad, it was disappointing that random NPCs kept calling me. What an "immersive experience" lol. I already have a ringtone phobia irl, I don't need one...
  9. Most Generation PRNG Help / Information

    Thanks for giving me the answers I need. So I have to hit my delay once for the nature and once for the IVs? Nyeh. Now I don't know whether it's worth it for me to switch to HGSS for beeding. Isn't there any way to find an egg by finding your initial seed, like in DPP? I don't mind...
  10. Most Generation PRNG Help / Information

    I've heard that a lack of cowgirls makes breeding in HGSS much easier than in DPP. So I'm trying to move my operations from Platinum to Soul Silver. I've already calibrated my delay, and learned how to use the Elm method. While I think that resetting for IVs will be easier in Soul Silver, I'm...
  11. Pokemon Black & White, aka Gen 5. Coming to Japan in Fall 2010.

    @Saif: In Japan, most people know English. By the end of High School, they're expected to be borderline-fluent. Saying small phrases in English is considered cool, like how it's popular to use French in Ontario. Additionally, they use some of our sayings in the original English, like how we...
  12. Pokemon Black & White, aka Gen 5. Coming to Japan in Fall 2010.

    @Ericcc: Names is one issue I love to speculate on. I'm hoping to be able to properly predict at least one this generation. Unfortunately, Japanese translators are rare, so it doesn't look like it's going to happen... "Emboar" sounds pretty good to me. It would be for the second evolution...
  13. Shuckle (power trick sweep?)

    This set is probably the most practical way for Shuckle to use Power Trick. Unfortunately, that's still not saying much... Shuckle's only going to get one shot at using his offensive ability. The time it takes to set up guarantees that Trick Room will be gone before you get a chance to...
  14. Most Generation PRNG Help / Information

    In DPP, the frame advances by the number of Pokemon in your party every time you take 128 steps. I assume this carries over to HGSS. I'm about to RNG for Lugia in Soul Silver, and I'm wondering if the steps I am forced to take advance the game's hidden step counter at all. Do I have to factor...
  15. The 1v1 Metagame

    On the Subject of Focus Sash; I actually think it should be unbanned. It enables the use of otherwise unwieldy strategies. It keeps the simple "I hit hard and outspeed you" strategy at bay. It isn't really broken enough to be banned. I'm under the impression that "British" Gliscor is...
