    Favorite Pokedex Entry?

    Another offender is Salamence - depending on whether you interpret its height (4'11") as head-to-toe or head-to-tail, it's either shorter than you'd expect, or absolutely tiny.

    Favorite Pokedex Entry?

    If we're talking about Pokemon relationships, I need to talk about my favourite one. :ss/meowth: :sm/murkrow: Meowth, Ultra Sun: "When visiting a junkyard, you may catch sight of it having an intense fight with Murkrow over shiny objects." Murkrow, Crystal: "It hides any shiny object it finds...

    History of In-Game Teams

    Interesting thread idea! I'll post all of the teams that I can remember, throughout various games. 2005 - Sapphire: Sceptile, Machamp, Filler x4 First game, and I did the expected thing and only trained my starter. And a Machop for some reason, which was a Machoke until about level 60 because I...

    Let's Play! Jordan Plays Pokemon Omicron (In Blackfist City)

    I'm on record saying I like PBR, and I still stand by it being a fun game if you're part of its (very narrow) target audience. Certainly doesn't deserve the level of hate it gets, at least.

    Pokemon that were more prominent in a generation besides their own

    Be honest: Did you ever realize that Skarmory, Slugma, Chinchou, or Natu were gen II? Admittedly I'm biased because Sapphire was my first "proper" game (I owned and tried to play Gold beforehand, but I was clueless to the point of not knowing how to exit the player's house at the start of the...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    Adding onto this, while the Dark type does have a bit of an identity crisis between elemental darkness, night power, etc vs. pragmatism and fighting dirty, it's not too hard to reconcile the two when you consider that it's easier to be sneaky under cover of darkness, and many of the Pokemon you...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    The way I've always pictured it working is that the Steel-type light-based moves (Flash Cannon, Mirror Shot, etc) are artificial light, and more specifically the glaring and unnaturally-coloured white light you would get from a fluorescent bulb. Contrast, say, Dazzling Gleam, which fits the...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    People have mixed opinions of Z-moves. Personally, I was never a fan. They were unpredictable, fairly overpowering, made battles revolve too much around using them at the right time... but most of all, had some of the most cheesy, cringe-inducing names I've ever seen. I know what you're...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Self-proccing WP wasn't a thing at all until gen 8 and Dynamax, though. At least, not on any serious teams that I know of.

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    A certain new move was introduced in Generation VI, which I can only describe as the most pointless attack to ever be introduced into the game: Petal Blizzard. Ho boy, where do I begin? First of all, I'll give credit where credit is due: its flavour is amazing. The image of a Venusaur...

    Pokémon Movepool Oddities & Explanations

    The thing is, the "rock-hard head" entry doesn't even make sense if the Dex is giving it generic octopus entries. Octopuses (quite famously, in fact) don't have any bones.

    Unpopular opinions

    My problem with HGSS is sort of a problem with GF's style of remakes, which is to be as faithful as possible to the original games. Because, as has been discussed in previous posts, they had a chance to fix many glaring problems with GS(C) - the level curve, the Pokemon availability, CHIKORITA -...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Tiny nitpick, but I've never understood why Flip Turn is only 60 BP instead of 70 to match U-turn and Volt Switch.

    Sceptilian70's Thread for Bargain and Business

    No worries! It means Check My Thread - that is, is there anything in my thread you'd like for the Floatzel or a clone of it? I know it's one of your trophies, so it's absolutely no problem if you'd rather not trade it.

    Could you please CMT for that beautiful Shiny Floatzel?

    Project VGC Next Best Thing - Week 8 (Tsareena voting)

    Ok so I really love this set. Since you mentioned Psychic Terrain would it be worth running Heatproof > Levitate so that Bronzong benefits from it?

    Project VGC Next Best Thing - Week 8 (Tsareena voting)

    Going to try getting involved in this! I thought long and hard about why anyone would use Bronzong in Series 9. It has some cool options, but all of these options are outclassed. Ground immunity isn't nearly as useful in SwSh formats compared to before (though S10 may change this); It gets...

    [Gen 7] Ye Olde Trade Shoppe (7/4: Shiny RNGs)

    New update! I've been getting back into one of my favourite activities as far as obtaining neat Pokemon is concerned: RNG abuse. This time, I am proud to add some Shiny legendaries to the thread: Groudon, Rayquaza, Ho-oh, and Manaphy!

    The Best and Worst Boss Fights in Pokemon

    I'm not sure it's necessarily limited to Fire-types, either. The overall issue, at least to me, is that later bosses tend to be easier than earlier ones because the player has more options lategame. There are exceptions, of course; for example, HGSS Clair is a notoriously difficult battle...
