    Most obscure way needed to find a pokemon?

    Well, Feebas in R/S/E is definitely the weirdest one. There are 6 specific tiles in the river on Route 119 you can fish on to have a 50% chance to find it, and those 6 tiles are based on what your "trendy phrase" in Dewford City is. I also had problems finding Snorunt in Ruby. It took me a...

    Which Pokemon game had the best repeatable content?

    Emerald with the original Battle Frontier definitely.

    Should Game Freak start naming Pokémon games after metals/gemstones again?

    I think the ultra generic, watered-down take BW offered us with "truth" versus "ideals" is the closest thing to a genuinely controversial issue that Pokemon will ever broach. All of these (but especially the last one) touch too closely to real-world issues for Pokemon to touch them with a 10...

    U.S. Politics 2021: Ignore the Neighslayers

    There's no way she gets manslaughter or murder. Best case scenario they fire her and pay out a settlement to the family. More likely is that they decide he was going for a gun or something so the shooting was justified, and the poor officer was just emotionally traumatized by the incident or...

    Serebii dead?

    Serebii was always "rulified" in pretty much the exact same way it is now. If anything, the rules have gotten a little more relaxed the past couple years (my long list of infractions ending in like 2017 is evidence of this). Maybe you'd have better luck if you don't go around calling people...

    Least favourite Pokemon of each generation

    Gen 1: Zubat due to how annoyingly common it is in almost every cave in almost every game. Tentacool is a close second but I've had some decent success with Tentacruel that warmed me up to its evolution line. Gen 2: Sentret. Definitely my least favorite of the regional rodents. It doesn't even...

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    Seemed to me like you were saying essentially the opposite, like here... and here... Comparing Pokemon to FF6 or pretty much any other open world game is comparing apples to oranges. You might as well compare it to World of Warcraft, or Call of Duty. That's sort of the point I'm trying to...

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    I think a big part of the problem is there really aren't many similar games to Pokemon to compare it to. It's not a traditional JRPG although it does share some simularities to the genre. It's by far the most well-known monster battler game and, while I know there are others, the small handful...

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    Nobody's ambushing you. Disagreeing with you and ambushing you are very much not the same thing.

    What do you think of Pokémon's lore and mythology?

    Honestly? I think it's one of Pokemon's weaker points. Let's take Sinnoh's legends for example. From what we can gather, Arceus created the universe, but in doing so created Dialga and Palkia, the rulers of space and time respectively. Why does Arceus need Dialga and Palkia to control space and...

    Most annoying regional layouts in any game?

    I wasn't a huge fan of these puzzles as much because timing was also an issue with them, as you needed to be going full speed on a Mach Bike and still make sharp turns that were delayed by a square. I doubt I'd have as much of a problem with them now as I did back them but 11 year old me was...

    Most annoying regional layouts in any game?

    This seems to be an unpopular opinion but I loved Hoenn, and that was in large part due to the water routes that everyone else seems to hate so much. Coastal areas and islands are some of my favorite to hike in and explore in real life, so having a region that had a significant explorable...

    Were we wrong to want HMs gone?

    Surf and Waterfall are the two HM moves that really don't need a buff. Waterfall is still a viable option for physically-inclined Water-types, competing only with Liquidation (which has a somewhat worse distribution, although becoming a TR move in Sw/Sh did change that a bit) and Aqua Tail...

    Popular Theories you find Bizarre

    Actually, this can apply to literally everything ever, because it's basically a rewording of the simulation argument. How can you prove that anything you ever experience is actually, truly real and that you aren't comatose and experiencing an extremely vivid, extremely detailed dream? You really...
