    Pending Make it so moves appear before pokemon when searching the teambulder

    At most this should be a toggle that you can turn on or off in settings, which uses up server memory I think and probably isn't worth it. When teambuilding, most people already have decided what Pokémon they intend to use by the time they get into the teambuilder, and use resources such as...

    Let's Play! Pokémon Colosseum Nuzlocke

    CHAPTER 2 I have a very free day so I'm just gonna play on and off today and we'll see how far we get. We leave Phenac with a level 28 Umbreon and level 27 Espeon, which is still lower than our upcoming opponents will be, but it's the best we can do. We heal up on the way out, and move...

    Let's Play! Pokémon Colosseum Nuzlocke

    Encounters in this game are just not restricted in nuzlockes, allowing you to catch all of them. If you restricted them by location, then you would only have Umbreon & Espeon (starters), Makuhita, something from Battle Square (Slugma, Noctowl, Flaaffy, Skiploom, Quagsire, or Misdreavus; I...

    Let's Play! Pokémon Colosseum Nuzlocke

    Nah, I don't intend on doing so. It's one of those glitches that's so easy to do that it could be considered a feature, but it still feels cheap to me. By the time you get the Master Ball you only have a bunch of bad Pokémon and Heracross left anyway, so its only real use is the equivalent of...

    Let's Play! Pokémon Colosseum Nuzlocke

    Yeah let's do it. This will probably be updated very periodically so if you're interested watch the thread, mainly because Pokémon will die and this game is slow. Beyond that, this will be a somewhat casual nuzlocke by traditional standards because, hey, it's Pokémon Colosseum. This game was not...

    Pokémon Movepool Oddities & Explanations

    Hm, you're right but Stantler still creates that light through distorting space, I think. It has no other light source. The ultimate point is that Confuse Ray affects the world around the combat, where Night Shade doesn't.

    Pokémon Movepool Oddities & Explanations

    I think that's a totally valid interpretation and we might be... both right? My thing is, and I usually dislike when people do this line of argument but I feel it fits here, is if it were truly just making a larger mirage of your head for intimidation / unnerving purposes, Stantler should...

    Pokémon Movepool Oddities & Explanations

    Perhaps a better question is what the heck is Night Shade? I mean, the phrase has no meaning (I don’t think we’re chucking a tomato at the opponent), and the Japanese name Night Head doesn’t seem to have much more meaning either. The move descriptions for the move just say “attacks with a...

    Usually on the sign just outside their gyms. I don't know if this is for every generation, but I'm 99% sure it's true at least up until XY.

    SPOILERS! Mysteries and Conspiracies of Pokemon

    In RS, Wattson only uses Pokémon from New Mauville, which is a project he oversaw. I think they thought it added to his flavour to use a team of New Mauville Pokémon for that reason, and then in Emerald realised it just makes more sense for him to use the new electric dog on the route right...

    Tournament Gen 8 Random Doubles Open - Week 4

    First blood perk again vs fren and HOOPer Nate. He had rough luck second game but I think I still won tbh. https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8randomdoublesbattle-1415524319 https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8randomdoublesbattle-1415526897...

    What are Pokémon that failed as single-staged and why?

    To make it even worse than this, Heatmor has never actually had a gimmick for 99.99% of players. You noted that Fire Lash doesn't make it worth catching in Gen VII; I actually think it's fine as a move as it only competes with Flame Charge (weak), Flare Blitz (recoil) and Fire Punch which is...

    What are Pokémon that failed as single-staged and why?

    When discussing single-staged Pokémon, it's important to remember what the purpose of single-staged Pokémon is actually supposed to be. They're not supposed to be as powerful as the final stages of Pokémon that evolve, but are supposed to be more powerful than earlier stages of Pokémon that you...

    Format Discussion Pokemon Sword & Shield Random Battle Sets

    Yeah Cloud Nine is a great ability; it's a shame every Pokémon with it has one that's better, or at least better suited to its role. But Lickilicky is a great opportunity of actually introducing the ability to rands, and as previously mentioned Lickilicky cannot bluff being non-Band for long...

    Won in 2 vs Miss Novelist, ggs. Matchup in the second battle was rough for them tbh. https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8randomdoublesbattle-1409545173 https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8randomdoublesbattle-1409549708

    Hi! I'm GMT+1 so that's definitely convenient ^^ I honestly tend to prefer just playing when the other person messages me most of the time. My name on Showdown is Celly Berry, if you PM me on any of those days I'll probably be able to play. I'm getting a COVID jab on Saturday so Friday would be...

    Game Corners will now be rated PEGI 18 (equivalent to ESRB AO)

    Yes it would, because it has a roulette wheel in a casino that you have to spin in order to win stuff, which is simulated gambling (based on a google). Gambling is bad kids. That’s not a joke.

    Game Corners will now be rated PEGI 18 (equivalent to ESRB AO)

    Belgium and The Netherlands are those that have taken direct action that I know of, with Belgium’s being stronger and more direct. That was in 2018, though, and acted as an impetus for many other countries to begin talking about it and publish government reports :)
