    Gen 2... I think the games (and their remakes) are solid overall, but when it comes to the typical reasons I see given as to why Gen 2 is supposedly the greatest generation ever, I honestly have a hard time vouching for them. Here are some of the more common reasons I see given, and why I don't...

    I actually think Shiny Espeon looks good in Gen 8. I can't say the same for previous generations, but somehow SwSh managed to find a way to make it look appealing to me. As for other green Shinies? I really like Crustle, Beedrill, and Lurantis, whereas Fearow is my pick for the worst of the...

    Unpopular opinions

    Not to mention the Mystery Dungeon games' cutscenes, especially in Gates to Infinity. I'd also add "too much water" from gen 3 to that list. I really don't think it's that bad, especially since you can surf at twice the normal speed on a Sharpedo in ORAS and grab up a few Max Repels to not...

    And meanwhile, I'm here in Chicago visualizing it being part of a region full of Cornn Berry fields because that's what 90% of Illinois outside of Chicago and its suburbs is.

    Klinklang > Gen 1's trio of penises moles that are really happy to see you only show their heads above ground any day. Cry harder, genwunners.

    Your Favorite and/or Least Favorite Shiny Pokemon

    Let's talk about Shiny Pokemon. Which ones would (or did) you go to the depths of hell and back to get, and which ones would you sell your soul to never waste the random encounter chance on? There's a few of mine. Feel free to share yours.

    Your Favorite Theme in Pokemon?

    My favorites from each main series game: RBY: Route 1 - Catchy as hell, sets the stage for what was at the time a fun adventure, and still enjoyable to listen to today. Just about everything I could want in an early route theme. GSC: Dark Cave - If you're going to make a giant labyrinth of a...

    Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl - Release 19th Nov 2021

    I could go into detail regarding individual things I hope to see in BDSP, but here's the primary thing I want to see addressed: I realize what I'm about to say here is going to be a searing hot take, but... DPP are probably my least favorite games in the series. I don't dislike them (hell, I...

    Let's Play! Post your current In-game teams here

    Recently replayed Platinum with a team of six mons I had never trained before, and here are my thoughts on them: - For whatever reason, I never thought to pick Chimchar before now. Took me long enough to finally do so. Infernape was as great as advertised overall, but I don't like how it's...

    I'm a simple man. I see the names "Alolan Ninetales" or "Zoroark" in the title of a pet mod and submit entries. (Nerfed a bit as of 1/27)

    Pokemon That You've Grown To Like Recently

    Not to mention things like Nihilego, Beartic, Sawsbuck, Ribombee, Barraskewda, Morpeko, and Yanmega that would be far worse off without said split. On that note, I've recently replayed Platinum with a team of six mons I had never previously used on an in-game team, and I have a new addition of...

    A wild Zubat appeared! What Pokemon have annoyed you the most in playthroughs and in general?

    I hated Pelipper in RSE. Anything that learns Protect through level-up will abuse the hell out of it in-game, and with the myriad of trainers who have one in those games, it can be quite the repetitive nuisance.

    Reasons why I should not be making nominations at 3 in the morning. I meant to say Muscle Band.
