    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...

    How can you transfer Pokemon from a gen 3 game to a gen 7 game?

    One thing to note though, is that unlike the DS servers, Nintendo and TPCi own Bank/Home/3DS servers. I don't think we know the extent but there is some overlap as we learned recently with Nintendo helping out on HOME. So it's unlikely that this functionality will be lost any time soon. The big...

    Among the six Rotom's forms, which one do you like the most?

    I like all of them, especially base Rotom, but out of the non-original form, I'd have to say Rotom Mow is my favorite from a design perspective. Rotom Frost is probably my least favorite of the forms, but that was the Rotom card I got with my Platinum game. I do wish they'd retcon Rotom Fan and...

    4th Gen Recent Happenings Thread

    I took the time and got the Kanto birds that I wanted. Was a very tedious process and while I'm not the biggest fan of the Master ball, it was what I went with since otherwise I'd still probably be there trying to get them. At the very least, the Master ball send out animation isn't too bad. I...

    What Gen V Starter did you choose and why

    I imported Black because I knew I wanted White in English so my first playthrough was using some stuff that I knew I wasn't going to use in my normal first ENG playthrough but also wanted to use. So for JPN Black I chose Oshawott and in White I chose Snivy. In White 2 I chose Tepig just to round...

    Thoughts on the Elemental Monkeys?

    Conceptually I like the idea behind another trio - it gives an interesting and varied type to your team that you don't normally get early on. I also like that they are rare finds in a forest further on but the one you get lost/abandoned/whatever. But I don't like the designs or how they're...
