    Heads-Up: Cherrim Sunshine Forme Is Glitched

    Though it won't break your game, there have been reports that a wild Cherrim, once it turns into Sunshine Forme, becomes impossible to catch. People have depleted their entire stocks of Poké Balls (of every kind), and it breaks out every time no matter how many attempts were made. And while I'm...

    Interesting Hard-to-Notice Things

    As I've been playing through this game, I've noticed a few things here and there. Some of them I've made videos for, and some I have not. Most are related to functional things and mechanics, but I do have a few artistic observations as well. And I know some of these have been noticed by other...

    How Likely Will the Remaining Pokémon Turn Up in Hisui?

    Assuming that Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl has not only every Pokémon from Generations I through IV, but no Pokémon after that, it still leaves some big holes in the National Pokédex spanning Generations V through VII. To that end, in this post, I will list every Pokémon line not...

    Interesting Screenshots

    Since the Switch allows you to take a screenshot at almost any time (and definitely at any time for Pokémon Sword & Shield have you made any interesting ones? I'll start with one of my own:

    "Gotcha!" Bump of Chicken Music Video Analysis

    On September 29th, 2020, the Japanese rock band Bump of Chicken made a song celebrating Pokémon and its history with a song called "Gotcha!" The accompanying music video, which is about a boy with a Pikachu and a girl with an Eevee setting out and encountering each other, contains a lot of...

    What Do You Think the Upcoming Ranked Series Will Be Like?

    As of when I'm typing this, Series 6 is underway in Sword and Shield Ranked battles. Each series has been 1 to 2 months long, so this one should end in October 2020, to be followed by Series 7. That one, if the pattern continues will be from November to December 2020. In Generation VII, where...

    What other spinoff Pokémon games would you like to see sequels or followups to?

    For me, that would be Pokémon Pinball. The original Pokémon Pinball, on the Game Boy, was part of my segue into real life pinball, and now I participate in tournaments as a ranked player on the IFPA (International Flipper Pinball Association)...COVID-19 notwithstanding. We haven't had one since...

    Come Up with a New Hold Item

    Any hold items you'd like to see added in or you think might be interesting to have? They don't have to make sense within the game or make sense for game balance. Here are a few: Buckler - The Pokémon holding this item has no weaknesses. However, this Pokémon cannot hit any Pokémon for...

    Are you a Timmy, a Johnny, or a Spike?

    When it comes to playing Pokémon, would you consider yourself a Timmy/Tammy, a Johnny/Jenny, or a Spike? These are player psychographic archetypes created by Mark Rosewater, the lead card designer of Magic: The Gathering, but they can be applied to any game with a large degree of customization...

    How to Get Good at Voltorb Flip

    (I've decided to put this here because I get the feeling that Voltorb Flip is here to stay, due to European lawmakers' views on gambling. HeartGold/SoulSilver is just the beginning, so you'd better get used to it.) It seems that a lot of you have trouble figuring out Voltorb Flip, and many...

    Roulette Nervousness

    You know that wheel you have to spin for the Neon Colosseum Fortune Battles and the Courtyard Colosseum Survival Battles, right? Well, I know how to manipulate the wheel and get what I need. For a while I get what I want, and I can get through them just fine. However... ...after some time...

    Most Useful Ability

    For now, forget which Pokémon are attached to. Just think of the Abilities by themselves, maybe put onto a theoretical Pokémon. I'd like to see which Abilities you would consider to benefit the msot or most likely to benefit that Pokémon. I also don't count Wonder Guard for this list, as its...

    How do you get the "Assistant Principal" title?

    I've noticed that a few in-game opponents have the "Assistant Principal" title, but I'm not sure how it's done. I've figured that it requires the muscular man model and probably the entire Sports B set, but I get the title of "Sports Guy." Does anybody know what needs to be done to get...

    Ash and Pikachu Unicycle Stunt Show

    Some randomness I found on YouTube right here. It seems to be a school talent show, and this was the winner. The music they use is the original Japanese theme song for the Pokémon show. They mess up a few times, but what's truly astounding is that the person dressed as Ash is 9 years old, and...

    Nintendo of America Interview

    Heh, it looks like PokeBeach beat Serebii.net to something: an interview from Pokemon.com with the main people behind PBR. My thoughts: • Screaming at bug problems is something I don't think constitutes "self-control and...not disturb[ing] others." • Looks like there were plans to make a...

    Origami Dialga

    This just showed up on YouTube: a step-by-step slideshow on how to fold your own Dialga! I'll give this a try when it isn't half past two in the morning, but if you don't have much experience folding origami, it might be a little difficult to understand, since he (she?) treats some of the more...

    The announcer fails his duty.

    The job of an announcer is to describe what's happening to the visually-impaired and for the people listening over the radio, is it not? How are you supposed to understand what's going on when the announcer says something like... "From the red corner...Rotom! And from the blue...

    Random thought about IV breeding...

    I've had this thought for at least a few months, but I just remembered it now again: IV breeding is eugenics. Basically, what you're doing is eliminating all Pokémon that come to you whose genes are unfavorable, which is exactly what the practice of eugenics is about. Just for a bit of...

    Pokémon Battle Revoluton: A Victim of Culture Clash

    Pokémon Battle Revoluton: A Victim of Culture Clash Yo. I guess this would be the next in a series of Pokémon-based essays that I'll write. For those of you who missed the first one, I wrote something called "Top 10 Misconceptions About Pokémon I Wish Would Go Away Forever." Well, here's the...

    What Berries Are Based On

    A lot of people probably won't care about this, but I'm a curious person. I'm the kind of person who looks up at the sky and asks, "Why is it blue?" And I do some research and find out that the mixture of gases reflects blue light. In this case, I see lots of strange names for Berries, so I got...
