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

    Unless I missed something there really was almost nothing shown. The graphics look like an improvement, although on a mainline console we could maybe expect better. The region looks kinda cool, but really almost nothing has been confirmed apart from maybe the return of gyms. The starters and...
  2. Pokemon Shuffle General Discussion

    From memory, I think around 75 you get 2 initial disruptions. And 95-99 you get 3. Neither of these is consistently a problem against a "4 SE base 70+ pokemon with Gengar" team, but you can get unlucky and have 5 or 6 blocks frozen on the top row, which can mean a loss if you don't combo-out...
  3. Pokemon Shuffle General Discussion

    Solosis comes in at 160, meaning that trying to reach 200 will be a significant investment in terms of time and coins. Having said that, if we don't get a competition after M-Blaziken, there won't be much else for me to do at that point...
  4. np: ORAS OU Suspect Testing, Round 1 - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles [Greninja is Uber]

    I don't understand why your scenario even validates your point here... there is no reason that in your situation the greninja player couldn't choose to HP fire predicting the switch, and suddenly bp isn't doing enough because of the resist, not that greninja needs to stay in anyway. True, in...
  5. Pokémon X & Y In-game Tier List Discussion (MkII)

    After having caught a pikachu with a light ball (admittedly, only a 5% chance) I must say that it more than qualifies for C ranking under this condition. It's one of the best early-game pokemon before the really good stuff starts coming along (MEvos, Lucario, etc). I can understand that it is...
  6. Gen 6 np: XY Ubers Gengarite Suspect Test - In The Shadows [READ POST #71]

    Just lol. The ignorance in that statement is outstanding. Let's say I have one counter or check to a huge threat. If Gengar forces a one-for-one on that counter on a double switch, then I lose. My opponent has forced a win-condition. "well you got outplayed if he got his gengar in" - it's hardly...
  7. Gen 6 np: XY Ubers Gengarite Suspect Test - In The Shadows [READ POST #71]

    1. This isn't about Gengar being broken. This isn't OU. (Not that this statement doesn't not apply to anything with less than 100/100/100 defenses). 2. Ok, so getting 1 free turn is the challenge? For a ghost type with levitate, which is also fast and has access to substitute? ... Ironically, I...
  8. Gen 6 np: XY Ubers Gengarite Suspect Test - In The Shadows [READ POST #71]

    You are on thin ground trying to argue this point. No legitimate move or ability ever breaks a game mechanic. I'll run with ignore/remove for arguments sake here. Priority completely ignores the speed stat, which is a mechanic. Pursuit ignores the priority given to switching out. Taunt removes...
  9. Gen 6 np: XY Ubers Gengarite Suspect Test - In The Shadows [READ POST #71]

    This is the best part of your post, and also the most important part. It horrifies me that people are comparing Shadow Tag to evasion and confusion, and pushing for a ban just because of it. I don't necessarily agree with the rest though. Imo, MegaGengar is terrifying in a completely different...
  10. Shiny Charm and Masuda Method

    I'd say it's very likely that the rate is 1/512 going by the data (and considering that would "make sense" in terms of how the calculation worked in previous generations).
  11. Shiny Charm and Masuda Method

    This is bad luck, but you have to realise this is statistics. Say the chance of a shiny is 1 in 500 (which seems to be roughly correct) - this doesn't mean you're guaranteed a shiny if you do 500 eggs, or even 10,000. In your case, if it's binomial (1900,0.002) then it's a 3.1% chance you don't...
  12. ORAS General Discussion - Mark 2 - Spoilers Inside

    The anime helped him on his way. Clefairy was (supposed to be) the original mascot back in the pocket monsters manga, but I think fans preferred the MC's pikachu, so they went with that instead for the anime, then it stuck. You know, I was fairly sure that they would keep customisation just...
  13. Battle Maison Discussion & Records

    To be honest with this thread, just like previous gens', it is abundantly clear which users should be credited with really innovating and theorymoning various strategies and I'm sure everyone else is thankful for that anyway. It would be nice to see users give credit to the original strategist...
  14. Sticky Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

    Sorry, should have made it clearer that I was referring to the RSE in-game dex which has kingdra at around #180 iirc. But I think Lopunny is still a nod towards this dex being expanded in ORAS.
  15. Sticky Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

    There are 7 dragon pokemon in the Hoenn dex iirc, and (assuming lati@sites come out in ORAS) 4 of them have MEvos (and "mega" rayquaza doesn't look too unlikely, neither would Mega Kindra be too surprising). RIP in peace sweet prince (flygon). Aside from that, I quite like the new designs. I...
  16. np: XY OU Suspect Testing Round 6 - Wrecking Ball [Read Post 423 for Posting etiquette]

    My concise view on MMawile is that it just has too much going for it. Even if you individually pick aparts various aspects of it and theorymon with them, perhaps things might not look so bad. But MMawile is definitely greater than the sum of its parts, which is something that is very obvious...
  17. Gen 6 np: XY Ubers Gengarite Suspect Test - In The Shadows [READ POST #71]

    This analogy to coin-flipping bugs me greatly, because it simply isn't true. It is true for an evasion scenario or for confusion, but it is not true here. Competitive (yes, I'm using this word purposefully) pokemon is all about taking calculated risks, playing to execute a plan and trying to...
  18. Sticky Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

    I don't understand why you'd think the opposite. These games are RS remakes. We might expect elements of emerald that are more add-ons (such as the frontier) to appear, but if you are remaking a game, then unsurprisingly the basis will be the original game, instead of the original games...
  19. Sticky Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

    Lol yeah, a fairy- type with those defenses + 700BST + magic bounce is not going to be good. I mean who would ever think the opposite? And there's definitely no pokemon in any metagame with less than 125 base attack who ever even have a hope of creating an offensive presence.
  20. Sticky Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

    Hopefully we'll get some clearer scans of the second page (and maybe more) soon. Certainly no surprises so far though. Why would the E4 having megas detract from the story? And why does the story have to take precedence? Ignoring your personal feelings, is there any logical reason for either?
