    Team Skull, Aether Foundation and Plot Discussion Thread [Contains Story Spoilers]

    The interplay between the two organizations could be one of the variations differing between versions, just like how Team Magma is the main villainous organization in Ruby and how Team Aqua is the antaganist organization in Sapphire.

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    (The use of Arcanine in all of the below examples is not meant to imply anything or suggest support for an Alolan Arcanine.) The answer could of course be that the "traditional" form of a species being native in the game does not at all contradict an Alolan form of the same pokemon being found...

    New Pokemon Discussion Thread

    After idly musing about the dolphin pokemon we may or may not get, I had a thought--what if Wishiwashi evolves into the dolphin pokemon? True, dolphins are distinctly not fish, arguably being less so than even octopi, but this (or any evolution) would enable Wishiwashi to wield Eviolite and...

    Regional Variants/Alolan Forms Discussion Thread

    A "surfing" pokemon is a lot different from a "surfing" human. The former is an odd hodge-podge of ideas, as in the overworld the HM represent you sitting aboard a pokemon atop the water, and so the concept should just represent a pokemon capable of ferrying a trainer atop it across a body of...

    Mega Evolution Discussion & Speculation Thread

    Only in the sense that "both can't be used on the same pokemon" (and that indeed is itself a supposition, supposing that Mega Evolution still requires a held item--to be sure, it still probably does, only a probably-false purported leak said otherwise).

    Starter Discussion & Thread

    Of all these supposed pitfalls the only point that would seem to be especially weak is the one regarding "Tapu Naene". For one, we already do have an odd and lone Greninja form, namely, an "Ash-Greninja" in the anime, TCG, Shuffle, and Picross with no equivalent had by either Chesnaught and...

    The Rite of the Island Challenge Discussion Thread

    Two thoughts: 1) it's weird how Hala seems to employ Tapu Koku in your battle against him, and then how another trailer has Tapu Koku in your employ, so it could be that the Island Kahunas employ pokemon without necessarily catching them, 2) perhaps champions will come from across the world to...

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    To remind, the term "Ash-Greninja" would make no sense for a leaker to make quick reference to (i.e., simply say "'Ash-Greninja' is in the game") if it weren't already a thing in the anime, TCG, Shuffle, and Picross. There are sources of revelation far more credible than credible leaks.

    Why in all my life I have nevuh hurd sum'in so out-ray-jis! No, they might've taken some loan from the name for the typing and motif but little more, not that typing and motif are on the whole small things. It's why Malamar is a Dark-type, because the name alone of the "Vampire Squid" allows...

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    Disproving any purported leak that includes a claim that Ash-Greninja is in the game is different from disproving the claim that Ash-Greninja is in the game, see my previous post. Or, for an example, imagine that I crafted this purported leak containing these two claims: 1) Alolan Raichu...

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    It's so stupid that it's safe to assume it doesn't exist, only, it exists. #anime #shuffle #tcg #picross(#OrSoI'veHeardRegardingPicross) We don't actually know that a Synchro form would equate to a direct "power-up" (a Mega Evolution does always amount to a passive power-up, as it increases...

    Weeeeeeellllllllllllll (this is going to be a very qualified post, hence the number of e's and l's) 1) I wasn't actually putting credence directly on the purported leak, I was only pointing out that the proposed method (regardless of how it was proposed) was a proposed method, 2) the failed...

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    What's the point of evolution, Mega Evolution, any pokemon at all, etc.? (Rhetorical question, but I'm too tired to type the answers.) Anyways, Ash's "Ash-Greninja" is Ash's "Ash-Greninja" because, in the emergent evolutionary state it attains, it comes to take on aspects of Ash's appearance...

    Regional Variants/Alolan Forms Discussion Thread

    For the sake of discussion, let's assume (and this is not my position, by the way, see below*) that Pikachu has a "true" Alolan form. Why would they hide it? Well, one answer could be that it doesn't differ in typing or significantly enough in appearance from a lot of its elsewhere-originating...

    Regional Variants/Alolan Forms Discussion Thread

    But we literally have not 'literally' seen "Kanto" (whatever that means at this point) Exeggcute, Cubone, and Pikachu evolve into the Alolan forms of their evolutions. Each time there is a cut from the evolution sequence to a battle sequence featuring the Alolan form evolved pokemon--the...

    New Pokemon Discussion Thread

    If some people get the game early they could theoretically be known before release. Otherwise, probably 16-ish hours after release, I'd say.

    Starter Discussion & Thread

    I looked up "heel" to see what this had to do with anything. Glad I did. Personally I liked the name "Beltigre" that went around and was pushed by the faked leak-dex. Her claim is ultimately that "Robinhoot" feels to her quite forced. I agree but think that, if they want to go with a...

    New Gameplay Features/Mechanics Discussion Thread

    So Pikachu using a Normal-type Z-Move has made me wonder about this, but how do we expect Refrigerate Amaura and Pixilate Sylveon will interact with the Normal-type Z-Move? These are the only Pokemon with -ate-or abilities accessible without holding a Mega Stone.

    Braixen, Chespin, Quilladin have some French origins (some of these you have to look to the Japanese names to see [reminding me of a Dos Equis commercial where it says the most interesting man speaks perfect Russian--in French--or perfect xth language in yth]), as arguably does Frogadier. I was...

    Starter Discussion & Thread

    At the very least the names of the starters was pretty French-i-ty (or, as they would say in France, el Francophone). "Gren", for instance, I believe is the French word for "blue".
