    Rate My Gimmick Gen 5 Tournament Team

    On another forum I frequent, we host tournaments every now and then. Usually we do one type of "tier" tournament where we battle standard/UU/Little Cup/Uber one week, and then we do a "gimmick" tournament the next week. Currently running is the gimmick tournament. And the gimmick is Gen 5...

    Kotaku: The Way to Improve Pokemon Is To Make It An Entirely Different Game!

    Kotaku posted an article titled "10 ways to Make Pokemon Super awesome" or something like that. In it, they suggest adding a Gym Leader element where you become a Gym Leader and...sit there and wait for challengers, and sometimes fight people? I don't know. They also propose getting rid of...

    Ranch Question

    In the next few days/weeks/months, I'm going to clear out my Ranch and re-boot my Diamond. My question is, what process would I go under to "re-set" Ranch as well? I'd like to receive Hayley's Pokemon again, and possibly use them within the course of the main game. So how do I go about...

    How was Thunder Armor explained in the Japanese raw?

    Okay, I know that Ash often does improvise these odd combinations and all, but I can't quite figure out Thunder Armor. I first thought maybe it was a very, very odd way of activating Swellow's GUTS ability. Bulbapedia says Swellow's ability has been confirmed, but doesn't cite an episode...

    Do Dent and his brothers run the cheapest First Early Gym ever?

    This is the gym that, presumably, new trainers who just got their starter, trash rodent, and trash regional bird go to, after only a half a dozen or so trainer battles in their ENTIRE career. And what does this gym have? Dent's Yanappu has SOLARBEAM, one of the most powerful Grass type...

    What do you think about the animé's version of Pokémerica so far?

    What do you think about the animé's version of Pokémerica so far? We know, it's official, Isshu is based on New York City. And it's obvious many of the Pokemon designs are influenced by big-city life, or are blatant tributes to America like Wargle. So what about the anime's portrayal of...

    Titles are for suckaz: Improve my first UU

    I was getting bored of the 5-6 OU teams I was using, and have no idea what is even being tested on Suspect, so I decided to venture into UU. Pokemon are in bold and the original set follows. Any changes made by users will be shown in red font. And I have as much knowledge of UU as I do...

    The "I got bored on Shoddy" team (OU-Sandstorm-ish)

    So after using the same 3-4 teams (only one of them was really unique, the other 3 were variants with the same premise), I decided to re-construct a Wi-Fi Sandstorm team I used....but from memory. Aerodactyl (M) @ Focus Sash Ability: Pressure EVs: 6 HP/252 Atk/252 Spd Jolly nature (+Spd, -SAtk)...

    RMT- Ripping off Rhys

    This is, for the most part, my first team I actually put some thought into on Shoddy. I've greatly enjoyed being able to have nearly every legal move available with a few clicks instead of "ah screw it, too much breeding." This is based off of Rhys' team, located here The Lead of Awesome...

    What is a spoiler? What is a speculation? Where do babies come from? and more!

    Fake edit: Chelc, I wasn't sure if you wanted this in Spoilers or PAD. Move if you need to. Hi, welcome to the thread many (none) have been waiting for, the Speculation Vs Spoilers thread! Spoilers are confirmed events that will happen, but have not yet been aired. Spoilers are obtained...

    Help make this gimmicky tournament team into a competitive one!

    This team was made for a tournament using the standard clauses. I usually test out unique/gimmicky/crappy sets with them since we're not hyper competitive, but I think this team could turn into something useful. Oh, and I will make any changes in the OP rather than in responses. Rest...

    "But Timmy started it!" *strip searches Timmy* (Legal talk ITT)

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/24/us/24savana.html?_r=2 And as for the legal work, the 9th circuit ruled in the school district's favor, then it was overturned on appeal, and the Supreme Court is hearing the case next month. Let's establish ground rules first: The Supreme Court has...

    "Do we really want to subsidize the losers? This is America!" (Sports ITT)

    Local politics is what interests me the most. But usually I can't bring it up here since...well, no one cares, has similar experiences, etc... But as I've been reading up on the latest Pacers controversy (this time, it isn't a criminal charge!), I found this quote from David Stern...

    Gen I Tournament team

    Before anyone asks, I asked the staff if this falls under "no gimmicks" ,and they said they didn't. The Something Awful Forums have a good sized Pokemon thread, and we all play tournaments together. This time around, the theme is Gen I. The clauses: Items OHKO Evasion Sleep Species...

    Sexual partners, relationships, and strings

    So here's a non politics and religion topic. I know these usually don't go too well because the topics aren't nearly as controversial, but it's been on my mind lately: Our society is fairly open about sex. It's not uncommon to see some television couple throw down and not make anything more...

    While you're here, you may want to read the Rules & FAQs sticky. It's also full of fun things you should know! The reason the FAQ exists is because little to no good, quality discussion can be derived from these topics. They're either done to death and thus no new ground to cover, or are...

    What? I'm a certified rater? Well, RMT.

    To make this clear, this is a Wi-Fi team, as in with a Diamond cartridge and a Nintendo DS. Hypnosis' accuracy is still 70% on Wi-Fi. I've noticed that I've rated tons of teams, but haven't posted one in a long time. Please note that this team is for Wi-Fi and not Shoddy. I do not have easy...

    What would you IMPROVE about Pokemon games?

    Let me say that this is not a make-up-crazy-feature/plot/useless crap thread. That'd go in the Create Your Own sticky. This is to talk about improvements that can be made to what is currently in the games. 1. The GTS: You need to be able to search for Pokemon that aren't in your Dex...
