    "Worst Pokémon Ever"

    Two months late to the Fearow conversation but an interesting thing about it is that Spearow is a weird case of an early-game mon: for the first two gens it's found in a side route that many people might miss out alongside mons that are definitely not intended to be early-game only, such as the...

    Hi, it's been a while. So I'd decided I wanted to try Arbok in Silver after using it in Red and it ended up becoming an actual test so I wanted to share the results. My team was Pidgey, Ekans, Wooper, and Lapras. I know their ranks are mostly set but I figure one more test isn't gonna hurt...

    SPOILERS! Scarlet & Violet Leaks Thread - Data/Mechanics

    Phew, that was some 30-something pages of catching up from last night. Apologies if my post gets in between the current discussion. Gotta say when I first saw the stat leaks for the starters I was like "No way the cat magician is physical with Protean, I hope this is fake" but after seeing the...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Violet - 18th Nov 2022! **OFFICIAL INFO ONLY**

    That crab looks so silly lol, not sure about it being pure Rock-type but I guess it's better than having another Shell Smashin Water/Rock. Also this looks familiar.

    Pokemon Scarlet & Violet - 18th Nov 2022! **OFFICIAL INFO ONLY**

    I think they meant to write Hitmonlee but wrote Drifblim twice. I'm not sure what to make of Grafaiai (or Grafayeaye as I pronounce it in Spanish). It's definitely unique and I expect it to have a signature move—because we don't have enough of those. Due to Poison Touch I'm guessing it'll be...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Violet - 18th Nov 2022! **OFFICIAL INFO ONLY**

    When it was first mentioned that there'd be a Tera move I theorized that something like Dragonite could get rid of its Dragon typing since it'd get a solid Flying-type STAB (kinda like with Z-Fly) but then discarded the idea because I figured the move would be special like Hidden Power or...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Violet - 18th Nov 2022! **OFFICIAL INFO ONLY**

    Yea I generally agree with you but, at the same time, there wouldn't have been any "pattern" per se had they not given us Shiinotic. Not saying it's not an interesting concept in itself, simply that when put alongside the others it looks kinda forced. The reminder that it exists is the reason I...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Violet - 18th Nov 2022! **OFFICIAL INFO ONLY**

    I mean, if we wanna be pedantic Parasect is a parasitic mushroom taking over its host insect (with all those creepy dex entries) so if someone told me it was Grass/Bug I would've believed it. Although my brother would say fungi are totally different from plants, but I guess it's established Game...

    Ok so I honestly didn't expect that reaction to my post. I want to clarify that when I was reading the previous comments I got frustrated but that's why I waited to type, so I wouldn't come off as too snappy. I just wanted to provide more information so that the discussion wouldn't keep...

    Ohhh boy, the can of worms has been opened. There's a lot to unpack here so I'll try to be thorough. My impressions are based off the last run I did with Cynda which was for the other thread (therefore the noms are inflated), I wanted to use it alongside Vileplume but never got around to. I...

    Just wanna mention that, while it is true that a lot of midgame Water-types require a backtrack, Tenta definitely isn't one of them. You can catch it at level 24 when your team should be at around 25-26 and it effortlessly beats the Rocket Hideout and the next three gyms. While it falls lategame...

    The first thing I thought when I saw the name was "Ghost Pirate LeChuck's pet", and how could I not love it? Sad some people dislike it because chonk. Smoliv producing a very bitter oil not suitable for consumption makes sense even tho I love olives, otherwise it'd be nearly extict (or suffer...

    Enemy Mon Hall of Fame

    I actually remember having problems against DP Garchomp due to the dumb AI, since I couldn't bait the Giga Impact on my Empoleon so that it could 2HKO back (fsr Choice Specs Ice Beam failed to OHKO, probably a combination of awful IVs and low level since my Timid penguin actually had higher...

    You've talked about good and bad moments, but what about your WEIRDEST?

    Hey, I didn't know this thread existed. A little intro: since I come from a low-to-mid income family in Argentina I never had a console to play Pokémon games, meaning I always had to use emulators to play them. I remember when I was a kid my American cousins had a Game Boy (possibly Color with...

    Pokemon Legends - Arceus - 28th Jan 2022 *Official Content Only*

    I think DEFCON 1 is the worst one so I suppose a Pokemon game being leaked is a reasonable DEFCON 5.

    Pokemon BDSP Playthrough Discussion

    I didn't get the game so it's weird that I'm even posting here but I just wanted to say that some of your nicknames are great, in particular Mothim's as a fellow Les Luthiers fan (and Empoleon's too but I hadn't even realized before I read the explanation, lol). Also s/o to the Superclásico...

    Challenge Pokémon without catching Pokémon: Fire Red

    Hey, this is interesting!! Hope you're able to finish it. I have a question: if you happened to get the Celadon Game Corner Abra would you be able to trade it for the Route 2 Mr. Mime or is that against the rules (since it's technically neither a gift nor a purchase)? Good luck either way!

    The thing about Graveler is that, while Will and Bruno are pretty bad (you might get one KO at most in both, and losing to Onix is just dumb), Koga you can beat four mons if you avoid Veno, Karen you OHKO Gengar and Houndoom since you live one Crunch and against Lance you can beat both Aero and...

    Hi guys, it's been a while but I finally finished my Silver run. I used Jigglypuff, the GC Sandshrew, Tentacool, and Lugia with the support of Totodile and Spearow (since I hadn't used them in a long while). At first I was gonna use Kenya but then I realized I had no way of training Jiggly until...

    Big brain combos you've used in-game

    It isn't so much a big-brain combo as a "Duh! Big Brain" moment but the first time I played through Ruby entirely I was determined to sweep Steven with my level 48 Blaziken. I knew I could set Bulk Ups to the max on Skarmory and was confident I wouldn't need more than one healing item...
