    Little things you like about Pokémon

    What's something small I like about SV? Breloom hops like a kangaroo! It's absolutely adorable and yet another reason why I love the Pokemon.

    Post Your Scarlet & Violet In-Game Teams!

    Normally, when I do my first playthrough of a new generation, I make it a point to only use new Pokemon. But this time... My beautiful mushroom kangaroo finally gets put in a regional dex for the first time since his inception in Hoenn, and I couldn't NOT use him. And sure, this team ended up...

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

    Yeah, Cyclizar is cool and all, and the new items look neat, but really that was all filler for the real announcement. MY BEAUTIFUL MUSHROOM BOY BRELOOM IS BACK!!!

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    I could go on and on about how to fix Dusknoir but I reckon that might stray too far into wishlisting, so I'll just say that it has an intended job but lacks the tools to actually do it.

    Reasons to Stay Optimistic About Pokémon

    If there's one thing the internet LOVES, it's getting angry, and there are few ways this can be seen more clearly than the current attitude towards not just Pokemon, but also towards anyone who likes it. And yet, I genuinely enjoyed both Sword and Brilliant Diamond, and I'm not ashamed to admit...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Here's something about the games that's always annoyed me. I'm reminded of it because of BDSP, but my frustration dates back to just about the original DPP. (This does go into competitive territory, but I'm hoping it's okay.) There are many Pokemon that I would call "badly designed" - not from...

    Big brain combos you've used in-game

    I used Lopunny in Ultra Sun and gave it Z-Splash + Baton Pass. Was it ever useful? Well... no. But it was a ton of fun, at least!

    Favorite Pokedex Entry?

    Another offender is Salamence - depending on whether you interpret its height (4'11") as head-to-toe or head-to-tail, it's either shorter than you'd expect, or absolutely tiny.

    Favorite Pokedex Entry?

    If we're talking about Pokemon relationships, I need to talk about my favourite one. :ss/meowth: :sm/murkrow: Meowth, Ultra Sun: "When visiting a junkyard, you may catch sight of it having an intense fight with Murkrow over shiny objects." Murkrow, Crystal: "It hides any shiny object it finds...

    History of In-Game Teams

    Interesting thread idea! I'll post all of the teams that I can remember, throughout various games. 2005 - Sapphire: Sceptile, Machamp, Filler x4 First game, and I did the expected thing and only trained my starter. And a Machop for some reason, which was a Machoke until about level 60 because I...

    Let's Play! Jordan Plays Pokemon Omicron (In Blackfist City)

    I'm on record saying I like PBR, and I still stand by it being a fun game if you're part of its (very narrow) target audience. Certainly doesn't deserve the level of hate it gets, at least.

    Pokemon that were more prominent in a generation besides their own

    Be honest: Did you ever realize that Skarmory, Slugma, Chinchou, or Natu were gen II? Admittedly I'm biased because Sapphire was my first "proper" game (I owned and tried to play Gold beforehand, but I was clueless to the point of not knowing how to exit the player's house at the start of the...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    Adding onto this, while the Dark type does have a bit of an identity crisis between elemental darkness, night power, etc vs. pragmatism and fighting dirty, it's not too hard to reconcile the two when you consider that it's easier to be sneaky under cover of darkness, and many of the Pokemon you...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    The way I've always pictured it working is that the Steel-type light-based moves (Flash Cannon, Mirror Shot, etc) are artificial light, and more specifically the glaring and unnaturally-coloured white light you would get from a fluorescent bulb. Contrast, say, Dazzling Gleam, which fits the...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    People have mixed opinions of Z-moves. Personally, I was never a fan. They were unpredictable, fairly overpowering, made battles revolve too much around using them at the right time... but most of all, had some of the most cheesy, cringe-inducing names I've ever seen. I know what you're...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Self-proccing WP wasn't a thing at all until gen 8 and Dynamax, though. At least, not on any serious teams that I know of.

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    A certain new move was introduced in Generation VI, which I can only describe as the most pointless attack to ever be introduced into the game: Petal Blizzard. Ho boy, where do I begin? First of all, I'll give credit where credit is due: its flavour is amazing. The image of a Venusaur...

    Pokémon Movepool Oddities & Explanations

    The thing is, the "rock-hard head" entry doesn't even make sense if the Dex is giving it generic octopus entries. Octopuses (quite famously, in fact) don't have any bones.

    Unpopular opinions

    My problem with HGSS is sort of a problem with GF's style of remakes, which is to be as faithful as possible to the original games. Because, as has been discussed in previous posts, they had a chance to fix many glaring problems with GS(C) - the level curve, the Pokemon availability, CHIKORITA -...
