    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Because "antenna" only has one t. Words with more than one set of double consonants are rare in English. "Hattenna" doesn't work for this reason. Visually it looks wrong and from a pronunciation point of view it looks like it should be pronounced Hat-t-tenna rather than Hat-enna. On the flip...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    Possibly dumb question: how so? I'm not tremendously familiar with all Home's workings but on the main Pokedex page everything's all in one big block, whereas in PoGo they're separated. Also it's seven not nine in the Hisui dex, I'm really dumb today Honestly I prefer the messier approach. I...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    Waiting impatiently for Go to add all the Hisuian Pokemon but I really like how (as indicated by dataminers) the Hisui dex is a category of its own rather than being combined with the Galar Pokemon. It's kind of cute to have a Pokedex that consists of just nine Pokemon.

    SPOILERS! Mysteries and Conspiracies of Pokemon

    In RS, Steven's self-introduction on the PokeNav's Trainers' Eyes list is "When it comes down to it, I'm still the strongest!" which is a pretty bland and non-specific bit of text for him but does make sense given his insistence that he's "not just a rock maniac". In Emerald, this gets changed...

    Pokémon You Frequently Associate With A Region It Isn't From

    Maybe it's a sign of advancing age, but I find that I'm frequently mixing up regional form Pokemon. Alolan Muk? Yeah that's from Gen VIII. Galarian Rapidash? Yeah that's from Legends: Arceus, isn't it? I think it's more that I mentally categorise these species as "regional Pokemon", thus in a...

    Challenge Faster Than You Know – A Slow Speedrun of Sword

    Oh, do! They're phenomenally good reads. And I'm amused that the -Speed nature pattern is *still* occurring.

    My preference for a Hail-related stat buff wouldn't actually be a Defence boost; I think that's buffing the wrong area. The vast majority of Rock-types appreciate a Special Defence boost, but not all Ice-types want or need a physical Defence boost: some, like Avalugg, don't require it, and...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Just remembered the existence of a Sailor in Emerald (IIRC he's on the final stretch of those fast-current routes between Pacificidlog and Slateport) who, after you defeat him, says "Great, now I've no way to get off this island... actually that's not true. I know that a fainted Pokemon can...

    Hiya! We're one interaction away from levelling - I'm levelling with a bunch of people at 11am UK time tomorrow, but if you'd rather do it sooner that's fine. Let me know if you want to send/open a gift :)

    Without veering into wishlisting, some interesting ones that stand out to me: Poison/Ice - by far the most interesting of the unused combinations to me, would potentially be a defensive and offensive powerhouse Fire/Fairy - feels like one that should already have been done, really. But has a...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    I'm pretty sure in ORAS you can encounter Surfing Ace Trainers who don't have a Surf user in their party, which always struck me as odd. But then maybe not all NPCs use their whole party against you.

    Simple Questions/Requests - Mark 50 (Minor Pokemon Trades, Item Requests etc GO HERE) (NO HACKING)

    No that'd be perfect! I'm not hugely concerned about legality as long as it's functionally correct and legal, and IVs/Nature are irrelevant. No rush at all - just message me whenever you're ready. Anything in particular you'd like for it?

    Simple Questions/Requests - Mark 50 (Minor Pokemon Trades, Item Requests etc GO HERE) (NO HACKING)

    Looking through my Bank and realising I never managed to obtain the shiny Diancie given out in Gen VI. Does anyone have one spare? I'd like one that can still enter Gen VI, as I'd like to get the dex entry in Y. I can offer a mythical of equivalent value, including shiny Darkrai and Shaymin...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    So with Scarlet & Violet all things considered probably not maintaining Dynamax, are we ever going to get shiny G-Max Melmetal? I don't even play SwSh and yet it's an omission that bugs me given that Max Soup doesn't work on Melmetal, preventing players from giving the Gigantamax Factor to a...

    Pokémon whose mechanics fit a different generation(s) better than its own

    I have another one. Remember the pledge moves introduced in Gen V? It seems that they (or a very similar concept) were planned for Gen III to take advantage of double battles. From TCRF: Hidden in the code is a dummied-out function that allows the player to combine multiple moves into a...

    Pokémon whose mechanics fit a different generation(s) better than its own

    Interesting theory about the Regis, but Golduck kind of throws a wrench into it. It's the only Pokemon barring Rayquaza to get a weather-nullifying ability, and it feels like more Pokemon should have had that in a generation where weather became a more important battle mechanic; later...

    Pokémon whose mechanics fit a different generation(s) better than its own

    I always wondered why Abomasnow, or more to the point Snow Warning, was introduced a generation too late. I imagine a lot of people were expecting a "hail generator" akin to Drizzle, Drought, and Sand Stream in the eventual Gen IV, and we got one, but it's odd that Gen III didn't introduce one...

    Challenge Faster Than You Know – A Slow Speedrun of Sword

    I vote that you go after Calyrex first, it's a fun story. And I vote that you nickname it Menisculis. I also vote that Quick be evolved into Slowbro! I prefer the original Slowking over Slowbro but Galarian-wise, something about Slowking just doesn't quite work for me. The various postgame...
