    The Positives of your Least Favorite Pokemon Game and the Negatives of your Most Favorite

    I would have been okay with seeing all Pokémon in the Sinnoh dex to unlock the post-game areas if it wasn't for the legendaries. The games basically force you to catch Azelf/Uxie and release Mesprit in order to access the post-game. I generally prefer to wait with catching all optional...

    Gen III Battle Frontier Discussion and Records

    As said last time, my next destination was the Battle Pike. I like it a lot. The theme of it is luck, but I think it is more a combination of skill and luck. Or as said by Lucy in Pokémon Adventures: it tests your ability to influence your luck. You don’t know exactly what awaits behind the next...

    Excellent post, many good points which I have never thought about before. They updated Glameow's model a bit. In Gen 7, the ears are different. (left is Gen 6, right is Gen 7) It looks more "natural" in Gen 7 IMO, the new ears make it look more similar to its official artwork and sprites in...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Violet - 18th Nov 2022!

    All right. Time for some more in-depth unstructured thoughts about the new info for the games. There was one thing I wanted to say earlier. Allow me to be a true Pokémon fan for a moment and whine about every little thing. I don’t like how they recently have been showcasing all new info about...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Violet - 18th Nov 2022!

    Some short thoughts on what was shown in the Presents: - The first 10 minutes were all about VGC and games I don't play much (Go) or at all (the rest) so I don't really care for it - Seems like ScaVio will be more like a real open world and not a linear open world, which is a shame. Oh well, I...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Violet - 18th Nov 2022!

    I have decided to watch this Presents since it will for once air at a convenient time for me. It is Wednesday, but I am free to watch it. I really want some more info about the games. The one thing I want to see is a few new Pokémon. 20 minutes means that there should be something new at least...

    Gen III Battle Frontier Discussion and Records

    Battle Pyramid (Part 2) Round 16: The theme of this round is Ghost-types. Slaking’s Shadow Ball should be able to take care of most of them, but the wild Duskull and Shedinja have Protect, and I wanted to try something different. Houndoom feels like a good choice. I ran some calcs with it, and...

    Gen III Battle Frontier Discussion and Records

    After beating the Dome and the Palace once and for all, I decided to continue with the Pyramid. It is the second of my two favorite facilities in Emerald. I love how it focuses on exploration. It is a ton of fun, and I think it is very exciting to play through. I have a lot to say about it, it...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    I want to say more nice things about battle facilities. I have recently gone back to the Battle Pyramid in Emerald as the next part of my project. The Pyramid is one of my two favorites in Emerald and I have talked about most of the things I like about it in a previous post. However, one thing I...

    Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 In-Game Tier List (Reboot)

    That's fair, I definitely understand. I was already planning to play on Challenge Mode from the beginning, I wouldn't have thought about contributing to this list if you hadn't started this thread just a day after I started playing. I won't do any more playthroughs after this one (at least not...

    Favorite Pokemon Picker

    I have wanted to do this for ages, but I never got around to it because I knew it would take a long time. There are so many Pokémon I like! But I decided to spend 45 minutes on it now, here's the result: My top 40. Fairly accurate on the whole. But this was very difficult and there are a lot...

    Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 In-Game Tier List (Reboot)

    Thanks for the advice! I haven't played through the main game of B2/W2 since they were new, so there's a lot I have forgotten. I'll keep your advice about the berries in mind. I also decided to go with Litwick as the final member of my team. It could be fun, and I need a Special attacker. I'm a...

    Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 In-Game Tier List (Reboot)

    What a coincidence, I just happened to start a new playthrough of Black 2 yesterday. Currently using Snivy and Pidove, planning to add Drilbur, Scraggy and either Staryu or Spheal to the team later on. Haven't decided on a final member yet, but I'm leaning towards Litwick or Axew. I should note...

    Gen III Battle Frontier Discussion and Records

    It has been a while again. I have been busy with real life and other games, so Emerald and my Battle Facility project has fallen behind a bit. I have continued, but I have had some long breaks and it has taken a while to get to this point where I have another post worth making. Kommo-o, it...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    The recent discussion about Battle Facilities in the unpops thread reminded me of several things I like related to that. I like the Battle Frontiers, but I don’t think they are the greatest thing ever made. But they are very fun and there are a lot of good things about them. One thing about the...

    Challenge Pokemon X: AZ's Floette Solo Run

    I think you might be mixing up the side-effects of Light of Ruin and Fleur Cannon. Light of Ruin causes recoil damage to the user, while Fleur Cannon lowers the user's Sp.Atk with two stages. Anyway, this seems like a fun challenge, so I'll follow along. It has been 8 years since I last played...

    This was a really excellent post and I agree with pretty much everything you said. I wanted to reply but I don't really know what to say because you summed it all up so perfectly. But I have some short thoughts on a few subjects. I agree. I love the Subway and the challenge it presents, but Ingo...

    I enjoyed playing through L:A despite the issues I have with it (though it did sadly frustrate me a bit too often). I also took my time with it, I explored most areas in detail, catching Pokémon and picking up items. Training 2-3 teams was also fun. I might be a bit too negative towards the game...

    Thank you so much! Here’s the final post as promised. :ss/arrokuda: The End Even if the Challenge ended yesterday, I still played a little today. There were a few things I wanted to do. First of all, Elsanna headed back to the Max Lair. She embarked on another Dynamax Adventure and finally...
