    SPOILERS! Scarlet & Violet Leaks Thread - Data/Mechanics

    so i may have just discovered rabsca's dark secret. the pokedex entry states "The body that supports the ball barely moves. Therefore, it is thought that the true body of this Pokémon is actually inside the ball." which i thought was bullshit. just some speculation and its not like pokedex...

    SPOILERS! Scarlet & Violet Leaks Thread - Data/Mechanics

    the fact that only wo-chien and chi-yu were found by this leaker (so far maybe), which are the exact opposite of chien-pao and ting-lu being revealed by centro, also at the same time, leads me to believe these exist as version exclusive pairs. do we even know which mons are confirmed to be...

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

    Heads up, the entire list of returning Pokemon apparently just got leaked (and thus, "confirming" who got dexited from gen 9.) It would be nice to discuss some interesting dexits, but I suppose I'll have to wait for that leak thread to go up.

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Legends: Arceus *Leak Thread*

    I was gonna be funny and build monotype teams in PLA, until I found out there are almost no Dragon types in the game... It seems to be just Garchomp and Goodra, from what I see? Bit of a letdown, unless I pull a Lance and use Gyarados, etc.

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Legends: Arceus *Leak Thread*

    Drowsy seems more like a replacement for Sleep to me. Makes sense, it's arguably just as broken as Freeze.

    There's also the fact that *the almighty Arceus speaks to us*. It's isekai time, baby!

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

    So, are we waiting for the datamine thread to be created before posting spoilers, etc.? Because there might be a big one right out of the gate that the promotional material never even hinted at.

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

    The best part of this trailer was the battle with Alpha Walrein. It looks like a good challenge, and I was thinking for nuzlockes, to make up for the lack of trainer battles, these Alpha pokemon battles would instead become encounters you can't run away from as soon as you see one. And boy is...

    Pokemon BDSP Playthrough Discussion

    Isn't the affection mechanic unlocked by going to Amity Square? ie if you never go in there youll never get any affection boosts (and also never be able to have your pokemon follow you)

    SPOILERS! Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl Data Dumps

    That's such a weird thing to be in the game at all. You can just randomly get locked out of the postgame (the best part of the game) for an entire week. If anything, absolutely anything at all, about the circumstances had changed, then this would not happen. They could have put the Drifloon in...

    SPOILERS! Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl Data Dumps

    Just a random question, but has anyone managed to get a Spiritomb? I know online features aren't turned on yet, but maybe local meetups will work? I'd like to know if it still requires 32 meetups, and whether those can be the same person.

    SPOILERS! Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl Data Dumps

    It seems that you can indeed catch Platinum pokemon before the E4. They just show up as ??? in the Pokedex.

    SPOILERS! Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl Data Dumps

    Still waiting for the Underground mechanics dump, if there even is one. I'm still not even sure whether you can find Platinum-exclusive mons before the postgame...

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

    hmm theres something odd about drifblim's page here... no its not that it has no ability, that probably comes with the territory of the new battle system its not the weirdly high stats either ... why does calm mind have an agile/strong style change but not extrasensory?

    Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl - Release 19th Nov 2021 i see an omastar statue omastar wasnt even in the original platinum dex (being post game only) so does this mean they wont be limiting the available pokemon to the 210 in platinum after all?

    Resource Simple Questions, Simple Answers Thread

    a couple of questions: - i'm seeing a lot of sets that choose to put the remaining 4 evs in def or spdef. why in one of those stats and not HP? i thought buffing HP indirectly buffs both defenses. does it have something to do with odd vs even hp? (if so, what exactly does that mean) - in...

    Resource Simple Questions, Simple Answers UU Edition

    I'm interested in Morpeko, and surprised that it's even in UU. I saw that the recommended set uses Choice Band, then notes the inconsistency of Aura Wheel as a point against it. I've been running Protect alongside Aura Wheel, both as a scouting move and because it guarantees a safe type change...

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

    I'm looking for a Pincurchin with HA. Any one will do, but I don't have much to offer. I do have some other HA Pokemon that I've caught in raids: Mandibuzz, Hitmontop, and Tyranitar. (or, if you can point me to the exact den Pincurchin appears in, I can start hunting for one myself)

    SPOILERS! Sword and Shield in-game team discussion thread

    might as well throw my team in here too. first time: - Rillaboom - Orbeetle - Obstagoon - Toxtricity - Cursola - Falinks then for every time i replay the game, it'll be either a nuzlocke or a monotype challenge.

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword and Shield Datamine Thread

    so like, hear me out. the fossil pokemon are in the undiscovered group. the only other pokemon in that group are all legendaries, and "legendaries" like UBs (well and babies/nidoqueen, but other members of their family can breed). whats more, because theyre fossils, presumably you only get 1 of...
