    I mean, this is the ADV board, not current generation discussion. Commenting on today's rankings when asking about yesterday's kind of defeats to point of the topic, no?

    4th Gen Recent Happenings Thread

    Congratulations on the Gold print! Are you planning on going for the 100 streak for the Trainer Card star? If so, this post of mine from earlier and this link to Battle tower teams might be of interest to you. My post Battle Tower Opponent Teams

    Hoenn Legendary Golems

    Really? Competitively, all three were really solid in their debut generation, all placing in the OU tier / UU ban list. Regice was a special defensive monster that had niche OU usage and access to boltbeam, thunder wave, and was an excellent pivot. Regirock countered ADV staples in the meta game...

    Planned Teams Thread

    There's a part of me that wants to use my original Diamond team of Torterra/Staraptor/Luxray/Lucario/Toxicroak/Floatzel, but another part of me that wants that team to be specifically unique. GenIV is my favorite generation, with a lot of strong ties to Sinnoh. I've used everything a handful of...

    Will gen 8 age well for future players?

    I think GenVIII will age decently well in some areas, while failing massively in others. For starters, GenVIII has a lot to offer in terms of Pokémon variety and because of how raid dens and the wild area works, the pressure to get things like trade evolutions, stone evolutions, etc. goes down...

    Favourite Gen 5 feature?

    I never really got to take full advantage of Dream World and Join Avenue due to my college dorm wifi not working with the Nintendo DS. The PWT was nice but as much as I love battle facilities, I could never really get into it - it's definitely something I should go back to at some point to give...

    The Official G/S/C SHINY Thread

    About a week ago I was casually breeding my Feraligatr to send a Totodile to another game for dex purposes. Hatched a shiny Totodile about 5 or so eggs in. Was a cool little surprise. I am breeding with a shiny Ditto so odds are greatly reduced (1/64 as opposed to 1/8192) but I wasn't going for...

    Addressing The Hate of Tepig, Pignite and Emboar More Than Ten Years Later

    People are allowed to have different opinions on what they like and what they don't like; just as you have your own opinions. It's not that serious.

    Game Consoles To trade Heart Gold/Silver

    You'll need to trade locally. Have both games go into the Union Room on the top floor of the Pokemon Center. From there the two games will be able to interact and you can battle, trade, etc.

    What do you think of TRs?

    I like them as an old call-back to the older generations while not being obstructive like in days past. The whole thing needs to just be abundance and availability. Breaking TMs in past games wouldn't have been a big deal if you could always acquire them again, but most of them you couldn't...

    Your first Gen 1/2 Eeveelutions?

    In Red version, the first Eevee evolution was Jolteon. In Silver it was Umbreon by random chance.

    Gen VI had the best ideas and aesthetic. Fite me.

    I don't particularly think it's fair to say that Z-moves are 'lazy' in terms of design. Sure, in competitive, they were a nuke option that allowed for a lot of situations that had no counter play. But from a lore perspective, the Z-crystals, body moves to activate the energy flow, and attacks...

    SoulSilver Shiny Hunting. Any advice?

    The personality trait is tied to the Pokemon's IV's and has nothing to do with your SID or TID. The personality trait, which is known as the characteristic is tied to which of the Pokemon's IV's is highest. Each phrase covers 6 to 7 different IV stats. So for example "Quick Tempered" tells us...

    What Pokemon Teams did you have on your Gen 6 playthroughs? Any good memories?

    My initial X team was actually much larger than 6 pokemon, I used a lot of different things and rotated as I saw fit. What I beat the league with though was as follows: Greninja Talonflame Venusaur Trevenant Heliolisk Garchomp For Alpha Sapphire, I didn't rotate as much but I beat the league...

    Sinnoh's Underground

    I really liked the underground - I thought it was a really unique and fun way to get extra items like the base evolution stones, plates, etc. I also really liked that after you beat the Elite Four, other fossils were added. And really, I liked that outside of a few things, there weren't version...
