    CAP 29 - Part 6 - Defining Moves Discussion

    I'd like to voice an initial support for "dual dance", with an additional caveat that I believe CAP29 should have both Swords Dance and Nasty Plot. This seems a little out there, but the justification is that we are trying to work with Colour Change's strengths. One of the primary uses of...

    Tournament Random Battles Team Tournament 4: Semi-Finals

    Hi Wigglytuff, cool post :3 For 7 weeks I’ve been wondering what the crust rule is since you said I was an example of it in week 1. Now that you’ve reminded me, I’m wondering if you could explain, as as far as I can tell no one has heard of it. Kind regards, Crusty Berry

    Levels are also adjusted from time to time based on winrate. If a Pokémon wins way above average, its level is decreased a little for balance, and likewise for if a Pokémon loses too often the level is increased a little. But of course, initial levels are based on what tiers the Pokémon are in.

    Unpopular opinions

    I don't think it's necessarily only those two options. There's probably an understanding that only more serious Pokémon fans will buy the third versions of each generation, while the first versions are for a wider audience which includes casuals and kids. So they make movesets easier in the...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    To stick the knife in even more, Mantine is one of few Pokémon to be in both the Sinnoh and Galar dexes. Pelipper happens to be another one, too, though seagulls are an iconic part of the British coast so their inclusion is definitely warranted too. Considering we got Mantine Surfing in Alola...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    I agree wholeheartedly, and I recall making a post about it when SwSh released. I think after that, the PokéTuber Lockstin also made this point in his video about how the Pokémon included in SwSh's base game are all linked to British culture in some way, albeit some of them were somewhat reaches...

    Rejected Display Choice Scarf Stats

    Showdown policy is to provide only the information that a player can’t realistically be expected to memorise or calculate in their heads. Multiplying by 1.5x is perfectly reasonable to expect players to do honestly, and you CAN use a calculator if you’re really unable to do it.

    Click on your name in the top right corner by your conversations and alerts (your avatar will be small and next to it) and it should appear in the dropdown. I just checked and on mobile at least “signature” is actually just its own option in this dropdown. Just click around until you find the...

    In-game tier list policy discussion thread

    Honestly, and please don't take this as specifically targeted at you it's just because you were the one to directly quote me, posts like this seem like the greatest cause of contention in in-game tier lists as of late. People are getting way too pent up and pedantic over tiny things that can go...

    In-game tier list policy discussion thread

    I don't really understand why a policy is being made of this, but as someone who admittedly used to contribute to tier lists much more than I do these days, I think Kurona has the right idea here with a kind of "no detriment" policy. At the end of the day, Pokémon is an RPG. Grinding is a part...

    SPOILERS! Mysteries and Conspiracies of Pokemon

    There is another instance, which is that Volbeat and Illumise can rarely breed to create the other one. There are a couple of egg moves which can only be obtained by breeding a Volbeat and hatching an Illumise or vice versa, for uhhh some reason. Regarding Manaphy and Phione, it's completely...

    Can it not be both, though? The symbolism works in a meta sense for players, while the evolution energy is the in-game explanation. Barry isn't chilling at Mt. Coronet going "wow, this is some wild symbolism" while a portal to the Distortion World opens up in front of him. Let's consider the...

    Pending Show amount of turns of sleep left while not using Pokemon

    This already works in the other display, if you mouseover the minisprite beneath your trainer. Not to say that it shouldn't also be displayed in the other hover box, but this is a way to figure this stuff out while its implemented / if it isn't implemented.

    Equally, the "red chain" is a complete enigma other than the fact that we know it was extracted from the Lake Trio. And we don't even really know what it did to Palkia or Dialga other than enraging them. We know much less about it than the Blue or Red Orbs, for instance, so why exactly the box...
