    Research Do you believe pokemon games are on a downward spiral?

    Yes. After XY specifically. ShSw can attest to that. Still enjoyable, tho, but I'd never expect another Pokémon game with the same polish or content than gold era NDS. I started playing Pokémon in first gen and I opine that Plat, HGSS and BW2 are the greatest, more content and most ambitous...

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

    I do think Gen 6 Exp. Share should be a staple forever. It promotes incorporing new members to the team and training them all to accesible levels without the tedious grinding. They fail in the aplication because there's no level limit, and it should be. A trainer's skill is conceptually...

    I wouldn't use GFs backstory this time, because at this moment they are unpredictable. As you've clearly stated (and it's true), until this point in time the Pokémon franchise was always that predictable. You had a new generation (starting from third gen), then you had remakes that incorporate...

    My Bronzong runs Heatproof, no one uses Earthquake against it because they think if they do and it has Levitate they will look stupid, so out of pure ego no one dares to use EQ and then you have 2 resistances instead of 1. New meta.

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

    Game Freak has been hindered by technology. Back when Pokémon main series was for portable systems, Pokémon could seriously contend with any jRPG you can think of, mainly because during the 1990-2000s era, apart from Golden Sun (which did not came until GBA), jRPGs were seen (and still are...

    I recently used Manaphy on my Regenade Planitum locke because it outclasses every other bulky water. Tail Glow + base 100 pure water type is broken. Tail Glow in itself is broken and the only mons that get it are Manaphy, Volbeat (who lack the stats) and Xurkitree (lacks the speed and overall...

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

    I've recently finished both a nuzlocke in Renegade Platinum and a normal run in Platinum (in a 2 days marathon, back to back), and having this gen more fresh than ever, I've to say that the original DPPl is by far the hardest official generation in all of Pokémon (only founds competition in BW2...

    I mean, I think it won't harm anyone to -as fans- desire for at least equal content than that of HG/SS, BW2. So I'm always expecting it, even if I have also assumed it'll never be.

    The unexplored area of Victory Road + Battle Zone (which is empty in DP, only in Platinum does it have notorious aditions, one of them being the Battle Frontier which is like 99% of what makes the Battle Zone the Battle Zone) is about 1, 2 hours of extended gameplay. I've in my old Diamond...

    Hardest Relative NPC

    I'm slowly but surely replaying Platinum rn, and I've to say the entire early game, if you create a full team, is somewhat tough. Most trainers have lvl 7 or 9 Pokémon, and the first battle against Mars is interesting. My team was Shinx lvl 14, Staravia lvl 15, Budew lvl 15 and Piplup lvl 13...

    Things you spent too much time on

    Imagine that I grew in a non-Internet era (not that Internet didn't exist, but that it wasn't common at all for kids to have a PC with Internet as we know today 30 years in the past), where your only resource of information as a kid was the Nintendo Acción, the raw amount of lies I (and my...

    Pokemon Legends - Arceus - 28th Jan 2022

    No one can answer the first, we can only theorize. But the second question is unnecesary. In the hypothetical scenario that they are available in other games (ShSw, for example) how is it even conceivable that they could lack abilities. Just using logic, do you imagine yourself pressing the data...

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

    Battle Frontier of Platinum (which is identical to HG/SS Battle Frontier) was a reimagination of III Gen Battle Frontier. In 4th, it consists of a series of enclosures (5 in this gen, 7 in Gen III Emerald), that propose a challenge in the form of custom ruled battles. Each one has different...
