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

    *Sees Mawile is allowed in Sw/Sh* Me: Oh cool maybe she can be my Mega during my in-game run...oh wait, no Megas so she is a trashmon again that nobody will ever use... If GF are insistent on limiting the dex size maybe they should leave pokemon such as Mawile for future games when Megas are...

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

    I'm finding it hard to come to terms with, but the pokedex limitation might be what causes me to quit pokemon altogether. It would be a huge loss for me, as I loved the Sun and Moon series and was happy with how gen 8 was going up till that point. But here is the thing, I spent hundreds of...

    Pokémon Let's Go! - Pikachu and Eevee

    So Let's Go is now avalible for download, with the file size being 4.1 GB. Thats only slightly more than Ultra Sun/Moon (3.6 GB), which goes to show just how bare bones this game is (the improved graphics are the only thing making it bigger than the USUM games). I know GF told us not to expect a...

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sun and Moon Full Game Datamine General Discussion Thread

    Can someone confirm if breeding regular Pokemon with HA can result in Alora Pokemon with their own HA (e.g Get a Snow Warning Vulpix from Drought carrying Parents)? Kinda important for me as currently the only thing making me consider choosing Sun is getting a HA Aloran Ninetails. But I already...

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sun and Moon Full Game Datamine General Discussion Thread

    It seems that nobody in any Pokemon forum was aware that several months after the announcement of SM GF sent private emails to people that were members of the Nintendo club and had bought several Pokemon games. Only a relatively small selection of emails were sent out (somewhere between a few...

    Pokemon Sun and Moon Demo Datamine + Full Game Leaks Collection (Read the OP)

    OK so it looks like Z-moves are going to be much more prominent then I thought they would be. Not necessarily for the attacking moves but certainly for the status moves. If Z-Geomancy loses its 2-turn wait and gets +1 on all stats on top of the +2 to its special + speed then Xerneas is going to...

    Pokemon Sun and Moon Demo Datamine + Full Game Leaks Collection (Read the OP)

    I agree that Z-moves are almost certainly not going to be as dominant as Megas were and will commonly be used to upgrade luring sets such as power-herb solarbeam Heatran. From what we know so far Z-moves add around 80BP to any offensive move (we don't know about status moves yet) and remove both...

    Pokemon Sun and Moon Demo Datamine + Full Game Leaks Collection (Read the OP)

    Ok so looking at the complete list the only 2 pokemon I really dislike is Aloran Persian and the final fire starter (not because the design itself is bad but its a big step down from its first and middle form and does not blend well with them, similar to when dragonair becomes dragonite)...

    SPOILERS! General Pokémon Anime Discussion

    So on youtube this episode currently has 73 likes and 1755 dislikes... Yeah I'm 100% done with the show now, that was probably the worst piece of writing I have ever seen. Ash's team had never been stronger, he had gone through emotional trials with himself and Greninja, he mastered a new form...

    Gen VII: Pokemon Sun and Moon Discussion MKII

    Well from the Japanese video we see that it has 79 hp at level 23. Assuming that it has 31 IV and no EV then that gives you a base HP of 85. If it has 0 IV then its base 100 HP. This means at level 100 with full investment you are getting 374-404 hp which is enough to KO most frail sweepers. So...

    Gen VII: Pokemon Sun and Moon Discussion MKII

    Well looking at Serebii I can tell you that; XY had 42/72 Pokemon, along with 13/30 Megas BW had 55/155 Pokemon DP had 30/106 Pokemon The site does not have prerelease Pokemon listings for gen 1-3 but they are less relevant anyway. SM currently has 35 new Pokemon along with 7 Alora forms. It's...

    Gen VII: Pokemon Sun and Moon Discussion MKII

    Got to admit that the SM crop of Pokemon has been really solid so far. It has already surpassed Gen 4 and 5 IMO and if the rest of the Pokemon remain this well thought out and designed it may even give my cherished Gen 2 a run for its money. Almost all of the Pokemon revealed have an excellent...

    Gen VII: Pokemon Sun and Moon Discussion MKII

    Yeah there is no such place sadly. This tends to happen at least once when a new game is revealed. In ORAS we got too interested in speculating the viability of new Megas which got the thread locked (more than once I recall). Competitive talk is banned in OI but if you try going to a official...

    Gen VII: Pokémon Sun and Moon (New info Post #5834)

    It looks like the official site has finally told us roughly what Ash-Greninja actually is. http://www.pokemon-sunmoon.com/en-us/a-sneak-peek-at-new-features/ "you’ll discover moves more powerful than any seen before". If you have been watching any of the amine you will see that Ash-ninja uses a...
