    Quite the cosmic coincidence that we go from a Pokemon that looks like a UFO to a literal alien the following week! You would think coming from another planet would give Beheeyem a lot of cool extraterrestrial power, but sadly it gets outdone by many other Psychic types no thanks to low speed...

    Yeah, kinda hard to make a fun set with this literal pile of trash. Though I suppose I am fortunate enough to at least own a shiny version of one.

    Of all the nearly 1,000 Pokemon in existence, Milotic continues to rank in my top 10 favorites. I loved its sleek and slender design, its beautiful coloring, and the fact that it evolves from an ugly fish into something marvelous. The games and anime also did Milotic justice, often being in...

    Am I the only one who sees Endeavor's facial hair when I look at Centiskorch? Anyways, Centiskorch is one of the few Fire types released in gen 8, and even I put one on my team. This living heater is blessed with a large offensive movepool and good defensive stats, but is held back by poor...

    Arguably the weakest and saddest of all the miss-matched fossil Pokemon of gen 8, Arctovish lacks the nifty gimmick it's brothers possess. It isn't as fast or broken in terms of power like Dracovish or Dracozolt, nor does it have the Bolt-Beam STAB of Arctozolt. Instead all it has is boring...

    It should be noted that Diggersby cannot learn Body Slam. No idea why, but Gamefreak be Gamefreak I guess...

    Starter rodents are typically famous for two things. Being HM slaves, and being useless competitively. Diggersby it seems wanted to duck that fate by giving itself two things as well. Secondary Ground typing which grants it amazing coverage with its STAB alone, and the hidden ability of Huge...

    One of my favorite gen 8 Pokemon, Flapple has a lot going on for it considering all the things it's design is inspired by. It's a worm in an apple, a pun on how worm and wyrm (A type of dragon) are homonyms, a clever nod to the falling apple that allowed Isaac Newton to understand gravity, and...

    Gen 9 Starters - Discussion/Speculation Thread

    Grass starter will probably evolve into a shaggy and mossy leopard, Fire starter will probably evolve into a bi-pedal Fire/Dragon with chilli motif, and the Water starter will probably evolve into a navy commander (Sailor suit ftw).

    If GameFreak had made our Octo bulkier it would have been fun to use with Octolock. Honestly, I feel the same thing happened with Pincurchin in the stat distribution sector. Couldn't commit fully to attack or defense, so it went with both and sucked at both...

    Can anyone imagine how OP Eternatus would have been had it kept its Gigantamax form's stats?
