    I am thinking of pairing Tapu Lele with Mega-Metagross (Rock Polish sweeper set). Is this viable? If yes, what pokemon would go well with them?

    Pokemon Sun and Moon Demo Datamine + Full Game Leaks Collection (Read the OP)

    The Ultra Beasts are all inspired by household items or pests. I'm beginning the think that Gamefreak is developing a new franchise and Pokemon SuMo will serve as some sort of backdoor pilot.

    Binary Battles

    Instead of hard-coding a new metagame, can we not just start two battles on pokemon showdown with the same team and make sure the pokes sent out cannot overlap? Unless I am missing something? Either way I don't think I will completely understand the rules until a see a reply lol

    Pokémon Picross General Discussion

    Can I get some clarifications on the pay-to-win aspects? So basically we need to either pay or wait a very long time for new puzzles? And even if I am infinitely skillful in solving the puzzles I can't finish the game without buying picrites?

    Interest in a Smeargle Solo Run 'Blog'?

    I agree with Pikachu315111. Obviously how many people will read your story depends on how good of a writer you are, but in general we all love a good read and the premise sounds pretty interesting to me. So I am definitely giving the first chapter a read if you decide to go ahead!

    New Pokémon silhouette leak (maybe Zygarde form?)

    The higher res image that BlazingFlareon uploaded a few posts above pretty much confirms the Zygarde connection for me, from the hexagonal middle eye and the five-split crown thing. The other distinctive feature of the silhouette is its towering height, which reminds us of the Yggdrasil, and...

    Research I programmed Snake into Pokemon Silver using only glitches

    At first I thought you programmed in Metal Gear Solid sprites or something lol This is so much more sophisticated and impressive!

    Modest Evolutions

    But Mywtwo actually makes sense and sounds just like Mewtwo lol And Mmpharos is just Ampharos (you pronounce the letter "M")

    If a base pokemon borrows move from its mega form typing, does it need to hold the megastone? e.g. If Gyarados learns a Dark type move, does it have to hold Gyaradosite?

    SPOILERS! Mysteries and Conspiracies of Pokemon

    On Lugia: I can understand the choice of Psychic typing as in the manga it is depicted as warping the water around itself in a sphere (kind of like water bending in Avatar), instead of swimming through water itself. It is also depicted as possessing telepathy in the anime (I think?). On Palkia...

    How do you pick a version?

    Introducing the OU (no Mega) Ladder

    As far as Justified mons go, the OU viable ones are Lucario, Terrakion, Cobalion (some niche as volt switch SR setter I heard?), Keldeo (lol mixed Keldeo any takers?) Toxic Orb Breloom I can also agree once you have got the toxic status. As for other bulky Fighting / Fairy mons I still see them...

    Introducing the OU (no Mega) Ladder

    LOL this paranoid conspiracy stuff needs to stop. Why must there be some kind of "hidden agenda" / "end game" / "long-term goal"? At the moment I just see it as a fun new ladder, and in a sense a glorified Other Metagame - indeed, wasn't there a mega-less idea in the OM forum? Whether this will...

    Should designs be based off animals only?

    This is an interesting topic and here are my two cents: 1) I think that when you break it down there are several categories of non-animal designs. There are completely non-animal designs which I quite like - Magneton and Porygon for example. By completely non-animal I mean designs based on...

    Other doughboy teaches teambuilding: Lesson 1 - What makes an effective team?

    This looks like a good project so can't wait for the next installment! BTW I think you meant "hazard remover" in the first line of the Latias description.

    How do you pick a version?

    I remember one of the complaints was that FRLG did not have Johto as a post-game region - some people were expecting a "reverse-Gold/Silver" in that sense. Back on topic, interesting to see some people picking a version based on the pokemon sprites! I recall there is a "worst pokemon sprites"...

    How do you pick a version?

    Great to read all your responses! From what I gather, it seems the most common reasoning is to "get what my friend didn't get". How nice for you guys to have a sibling / close friend who also plays pokemon!

    How do you pick a version?

    Okay the title is probably a bit confusing. We all know that Gamefreak usually releases its games in pairs - HG/SS, X/Y, OR/AS etc. So I basically want to kickstart a discussion about how you guys go about choosing which version and how easy/difficult it is for you to decide. I'll start off with...
