    U.S. Politics 2021: Ignore the Neighslayers

    So everyone's (least) favorite misinformation profiteer Alex Jones got handed a $49.3M verdict in one of several cases against him for his blatant slander and defamation against the parents of the victims of the Sandy Hook massacre. Sounds like a good thing, right? Well, a couple things have...

    I've always thought Magikarp and Gyarados were pretty neat on a conceptual level. You've got a Pokemon that, at an initial glance, seems to be the most useless entry in the entire series. It doesn't start with a damaging move, the damaging moves it can eventually learn are weak and inconsistent...

    Things that grind your gears!

    Including the parts where the third legendary is shoved in a random cave somewhere, mentioned by nobody and relevant to nothing, playing a bigger role in the Gen 7 games than in X/Y? Or the part where a main character unironically says you should have met half-way with the crazy genocidal maniac...

    Things that grind your gears!

    Add it to the long list of things in X/Y that were half-baked.

    Create/Rename/Change Anything and Everything

    Great Wall of Text incoming, but there's an idea that I've been chewing on for a little while now. I mentioned it briefly in one of the PLA threads a while ago but I decided I'd post it here to flesh it out a bit and maybe get some opinions, especially from people who consider themselves shiny...

    Weird moves certain Pokemon can or cannot learn

    Keldeo can have Hidden Power Fire in games where Hidden Power is still an accessible move (I.E. not Sword/Shield). Besides in Sword/Shield, the only restriction on Hidden Power is that Pokemon in the Undiscovered egg group (I.E. Legendaries, Mythicals, and Ultra Beasts) who originated in Gens 6...

    Do The Pokémon Mystery Dungeon Games Take Place In A Different World From The Main Games, Or Is It In The Same World But In The Far Future?

    It almost certainly doesn't take place in the same world (probably not even the same universe) as the main series games. With OR/AS all but confirming that multiverse theory is valid in the Pokemon world, it's likely that PMD takes place in one of these alternate universes. As for other humans...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

    I'm curious how many people giving the marketing team grief are themselves marketing specialists or anything of the like. Maybe they've decided that, this cycle, less is more. You lot certainly don't stop talking about the games, even if it's mostly griping and doomsaying about the lack of news...

    In your opinion (no flaming), what is the worst gaming community?

    So, uh, just to get this straight, you're saying you consider criticizing a video game to be worse than simulated CSAM?

    What is the most fun Pokemon game?

    Explorers or Platinum would be my picks, although Emerald is very close behind. Gold was also up there when I was younger but since then I've sort of become disillusioned with the Johto games and wouldn't recommend them to someone new to the series, nor peg them as the most fun or anything like...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

    The point is that, despite having all these gripes with Nintendo's development and marketing strategies, Pokemon fans keep giving them money. They are literally incentivizing them not to change. Companies don't like to take risks; from their perspective, why should they when they have a formula...

    Would Gamefreak ever decide to "re-allocate" types of existing pokémon?

    There are plenty of Pokemon who levitate, but don't actually have Levitate as an ability; lots of Psychic-type legendaries for example (Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Deoxys, etc), as well as certain Steel types like the aforementioned Magnemite line and Klink line. Then you have Bronzor and Bronzong...

    Things that grind your gears!

    Yes, because like I said the titles aren't referencing the Legendaries. In Sky's case, Shaymin is pivotal to the Sky Peak arc that the title is derived from so it does make some sense for it to be on the cover I suppose.

    Things that grind your gears!

    The titles of the Explorers games aren't referencing legendary Pokemon, they're referencing where your journey takes you within the game. The "Time" part in Explorers of Time arguably doesn't even refer to Dialga, it refers to the fact that the game tells a story that spans both across time and...

    Please rate my team. Any advice is welcome. ?

    It's a simulator format.

    Things Sword/Shield Nailed

    The Rotom-PC is a huge step in the right direction, and I hope it appears in future games. It could be disabled during certain gauntlets if balance is ever a concern. I also like how Sw/Sh gave an increased focus to co-operative PvE elements with Raids and Dynamax Adventures, which is something...

    Sneasel's/Weavile's ears

    I've always assumed Sneasel's feather was supposed to resemble a feathered cap, the kind often associated with figures like Robin Hood. Sneasel obviously draws a good deal of inspiration from bandits. Weavile's headdress resembles a Native American war bonnet, which I guess could be considered a...

    Superpower is a physical attack and not boosted by Calm Mind, and it does not lower the same stats that Calm Mind raises. It is not a substitute for Focus Blast on a Calm Mind set (not that I would particularly recommend using Calm Mind Deoxys-D in the first place). It's a much better choice on...

    How good will be certain Pokémon if they had certain ability/move(s)/typing?

    Dragon Rush is weaker than Outrage, although admittedly having no drawbacks besides the poor accuracy. Regardless, Dragon STABs aren't nearly as valuable to Dragonite as they used to be now that it has a reliable Flying move. I don't think a perfectly accurate Dragon Rush would be nearly enough...
