    Pursuit, Return/Frustration, and Hidden Power are gone. Welp.

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword & Shield Pre-Release SPOILERS - Check Post 2!

    Oh cool, Melmetal did actually make it! (and has its own dynamax form apparently?) I was hoping they wouldn't leave him in Let's Go hell. Edit: Also Primarina. I guess I'll still spam the Specs set for one more gen.

    Galarian Corsola and it's evo is legit nightmare fuel material and I love it.

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    Galarian Weezing has a lot of potential IMO. The Zigzagoon family on the other hand ain't looking that promising in the grand scheme of things (even though giving them a punk motif is kinda brilliant). Loos like a reskinned Pokepelago to me, which is a good thing 'cause seeing that feature...

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    Someone did a pretty good analisis on the whole "3D models are hard to port" argument for those interested. The thing is - and I believe even KH says it in his video - that wasn't always the case. Back when they were still in weaker hardware, Gamefreak could go above and beyond with their...

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    Because it's getting obvious GF would rather force the consumer to make sacrifices if it means they won't have to make some themselves? Don't get me wrong. Both The Pokemon Company and Nintendo are also likely to blame for the direction the newer games have taken these past years, whether it's...

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    There's always the chance HOME gives you a one-week-trial to do whatever you want just like Bank does, which should be enough time to transfer everything you have into SwSh. I did that for Gen 6 at least.

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    Honest question: can we talk about Pokemon Home here? I just realized that while the controversy might not affect the sales of Sword/Shield, it does (as far I see it) has the tiniest chance of screwing everyone over in the long run by not allowing us to transfer anything. Pokemon Bank as far...

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    Welp. That's...quite the way to prevent the metagame from getting stale over the years? I...still have no idea what to think of that.

    Data Usage-Based Tier Update for April 2019 (May @ #41) (June @ #75)

    I'm honestly surprised Kommo-o got to OU, and this is coming from someone who has used it a lot in the tier. While It's by no means a bad mon (at least not as it was in SM) and it's good natural bulk and resistances do give it far more switch-in options + setup fodder one would expect, the...

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    Cloudsaving would render half of Pokebank's purpose pointless so I highly doubt it. Also just realized that unless Gamefak pulls some coding magic we should finally be getting mutltiple saves like with Let's Go.

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    Yeah but the move tutors which don't involve starters, legendaries or Draco Meteor always happen to end up skipped in the first games of a generation, so if patterns are any indication we shouldn't be getting those until the Diamond/Pearl remakes or the enhanced Sword/Shield versions.

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    I've seen many people disappointed over the graphics of these games, and while I do understand where the frustration is coming from (trust me, I would love to get games with tons of work put in their graphics), I'm honestly less worried about that and more about the actual features and/or lack...

    Announcement np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 6 - A Thousand Miles [Zygarde is now Banned]

    For me this whole suspect feels less about Zygarde itself and more on whether Thousands Arrows bypassing the standard ground inmunity is "too cheap/overpowered" for the metagame, but since banning a move just to keep one mon viable is silly, in the end it's far more practical to ban the whole...

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee Datamine Info

    Poliwrath seems to learn Superpower now, so I could see it finally doing solid damage with a Choice Band in the future.

    Pokémon Let's Go! - Pikachu and Eevee

    Not to mention that, if pre-release footage is any indication, pokemons can't have hold items per-se, which makes the inclusion of megas very unlikely (they could change the way they work for this game though, but that would make things even more confusing in the long run for those who are gonna...

    Resource USUM OU ULTRA Viability Ranking Thread

    Supporting your nomination and I would like to also mention how Kommo-o can use both Ferrothorn and Toxapex as setup fodder (Bulletproof blocks Gyro Ball and with Thunder Punch Pex is forced into healing itself allowing you to set-up, works pretty well behind screens/HO and it's tanky enough to...

    Data Usage-Based Tier Update for April 2018 (May @ #97) (June @ #150)

    While Mew definitively wasn't, Clefable was another story entirely. Heck, if my memory serves me right, I dare say it was just as controversial as Breloom currently is (though for different reasons), to the point people were begging to make it S tier AND quickban it as soon as possible.

    Pokémon Let's Go! - Pikachu and Eevee

    GameFreak has been keeping Pokemon GO/Gen 7 connectivity unused for quite a while, so it's not like they haven't come up with anything for that or anything:

    Resource Simple Questions, Simple Answers Thread (read the op before posting a thread)

    Not really. While I can see it tank attacks from Scarf Lele, Lati@s, Koko and the Greninja Bros, both Lele and the Latis can bypass it with Psyshock, Raikou's best move vs the tapu is Shadow Ball and, alongside Greninja, can always U-Turn/Volt Switch to an electric counter/check. In general...
