    You are a type specialist in a hostile region. How do you best represent your chosen element?

    Not the most exciting or diverse team, but I could see all these Pokemon being part-Ghost if they weren't already. Pretty self-explanatory, I'm not overly unique for any of those choices except for Noctowl. Owls are very much associated with the supernatural and ghost tales, and Noctowl gets the...

    You are a type specialist in a hostile region. How do you best represent your chosen element?

    There are more Fairy types in ORAS than I expected! I think this would end up being the "default" Fairy type team for Hoenn which isn't super exciting unfortunately, but it's still pretty solid. Gardevoir, Azumarill, Mawile and Wigglytuff are the only available Fairy types in ORAS Hoenn and are...

    Post Your Scarlet & Violet In-Game Teams!

    I've got Grafaiai and Mabosstiff on my team and both are pretty good! Grafaiai feels weirdly strong and has a pretty solid offensive movepool early on (Acid Spray, Bite for coverage, Poison Fang isn't super late, Scratch gets you by until Slash) but I'd honestly pick up Mabosstiff. If you can...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    So there I was, minding my own business, starting my adventures in Pokemon Scarlet for the first time. Like many players, I plan my team! Skeledirge, Pawmot, Clodsire, Houndstone, Mabosstiff and Tinkaton were chosen - purely based on design, as I've done this song and dance enough to not be...

    "Worst Pokémon Ever"

    Whilst I think the implementation of the elemental monkeys to give you a perfect counter to the first gym was a bit heavy-handed, especially since the two rivals using the other starters taught you about type match-ups, I like the idea behind it. Gifting the player a Pokemon early on that...

    In-game tier list policy discussion thread

    I know there's talk above of an in-game tier list for Scarlet & Violet coming out at some point, so this question will probably be answered when that occurs, but I am curious - what are the stand-out new Pokemon from Paldea, either in terms of being an S/A tier monster or so bad it's almost...

    Closest In-Game Pokemon

    Threads like these make me regret ever restarting my games, because I love seeing people keeping Pokemon from their first or most fun save files and dragging them through different consoles to reach the latest game! I have a Tiktok saved of someone showing off their Ninetales they caught in...

    Mons you can't go without in-game?

    These 3 are the only Pokemon I've used that have made it onto more than 2 different in-game teams, which is quite the achievement given how much I prefer to diversify my teams for playthroughs. Out of these 3 only Electivire has been used in three different generations/regions (HeartGold, White...

    SPOILERS! General Pokémon Anime Discussion

    I'm also from the UK and noticed the same thing! Seems it airs an hour earlier now, although I couldn't tell you why. Episode 135 preview: Summary for this episode comes from Dephender on Serebii: "Now that they've both finished their challenges, Satoshi and Go reunite in Sakuragi Park, where...

    Pokemon Merchandise thread

    I can't believe nobody has posted this yet... Pokemon Squishmallows are here! Well at least for the UK, US and Canada according to the initial Tweet. Pikachu and Gengar are the first batch and we know Togepi and Snorlax are coming, but who knows what other Pokemon may appear? I just bought...

    Have you ever used any “theme teams” for in-game playthroughs?

    This was a Platinum team I used back in 2020, with a colour theme - be (somewhat) blue! They even had names based on shades/hues of blue: Azure, Tufts, Dodger, Brandeis, Majorelle and Cyan respectively. I don't really know why I went with this theme - we all know what went down in 2020 so I was...

    SPOILERS! General Pokémon Anime Discussion

    We've had a lot of interesting miniseries' for the games and franchise as a whole, and I think some amalgamation of Pokemon Origins + Pokemon Evolutions could work if they wanted the anime to end but still showcase the Pokemon and story of the games. Origins was the showing of the Red/Blue games...

    SPOILERS! General Pokémon Anime Discussion

    I stand by my thinking that Ash will have a true Paldean journey in the new series whilst continuing on as the World Champion in the PWC. Given that Leon didn't have to climb back into the Master's 8 beforehand it seems the World Champion just takes challenges from Master's 8 members until the...

    SPOILERS! Scarlet & Violet Leaks Thread - Data/Mechanics

    I think Pikaclone has become the norm for a lot of people so at this point there's no real need to change the concept. Every generation has an Electric-typed Pikaclone anyway (Johto has Pichu, Alola has Togedemaru) so nothing lost there, this is just the first generation where one evolves. But...

    SPOILERS! Scarlet & Violet Leaks Thread - Data/Mechanics

    Nope, because that's its own thing - that's your Rattata, Sentret, Zigzagoon, Bidoof, etc. That being said it doesn't look like we have one this generation outside of Lechonk, which I thought would be the Wooloo / Lillipup of the region? Lechonk isn't a rodent though, so... tradition broken...

    SPOILERS! Scarlet & Violet Leaks Thread - Data/Mechanics

    As the above have said, it's still Pawmi. Traditions can and do change, and this is one of them. Makes sense since Pikaclones are a weird tradition anyway - lots of folks count Mimikyu as one and it's not an Electric type, some count Marill due to Pikablu, whilst Pichu is part of the Pikachu...

    SPOILERS! Scarlet and Violet Gameplay/Story Leaks

    I figured the post-game was the so capturing them there is pretty much post-game in my eyes. I want a chance to use them and train them properly within the story, getting them when there's not much left to do outside of rematches or whatever is too late in my opinion.

    SPOILERS! Scarlet & Violet Leaks Thread - Data/Mechanics

    So I read somewhere (in this thread I believe) that we may be able to capture Paradox Donphan before the post-game? Is that true ?
