    Connection to Legends: Arceus Speculation

    I'm not really sure how to begin this post other than to say... 1) Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl and Legends: Arceus were announced at the same time 2) Both games will take place in the Sinnoh region, at different times. Even though they're distinctly separate entities, I can't imagine there...

    What song would you want to get a “Pokémon 25 Version”?

    What song would you want to get a “Pokémon 25 Version”? So for those not in the know, Pokemon decided the best way to celebrate their 25th anniversary yesterday was to have Post Malone cover a song by Hootie and the Blowfish. Oh and there was some music from the games spliced in too ;) It’s...

    Does Pokemon have "indie roots"?

    Hopefully the introductory post will clear up some confusion about the question I'm asking... Is Pokemon an indie game series? Absolutely not. Nintendo's involvement and the marketing from the earliest of days make that pretty clear. Is Game Freak an indie company? It's hard to argue that they...

    What Will You Name your Player Character?

    Ever since I found out about the Galar region being the Poke-equivalent of England, I wanted my player name to be some sort of homage to Tolkien, who I've grown to appreciate a lot more recently. After searching through multiple sources I finally found a pretty reputable looking site called...

    Was the 2D sprite to 3D model transition inevitable?

    This actually came into my head while watching The Geek Critique’s video on Sonic 06. In it he said some of the questionable character designs had to do with the push in the field towards “realistic graphics” but that now the industry is sort of pushing back. He uses Cuphead as an example of a...

    Connectivity with Let’s Go?

    Now that the official Gen 8 games are a thing a lot of the people who worried about Let’s Go will have some consolation. I certainly get where they’re coming from but I don’t want to discount the Switch’s inaugural Pokémon outings either. I have yet to purchase either Pikachu or Eevee but they...

    Pokemon Quest (Pokeminecraft?) Discussion

    It's no surprise that the Let's Go! games were the highlight of that reveal, but I'm looking forward to hearing what you guys have to think about this spin-off. My first impressions are that they're not even subtle about their source of inspiration, from the blocky mons themselves to even the...

    Pokemon you prefer NOT shiny

    So I've got some friends who are soft resetting for a shiny Poipole. The name Poipole made me laugh at how much it sounds like a New Yorker saying purple, and then I realized I don't really care for Poipole and Naganadel's shiny colors. I like them much better as purple Pokemon. So what...

    Reasons to Keep Playing Vanilla Sun/Moon (Possible Story Spoilers?)

    With the release of Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon and the games being so similar you'd think the originals would be rendered completely obsolete. But I had such a good time with these titles that I don't want them to be completely forgotten, and there are things that the original games do differently...

    Virtual Console Transfer Discussion

    So after the Pokebank update, the thing I'm most excited about is those transferred Pokemon with the Little Game Boy in the corner. Here's why :) All transferred Pokemon seem to have their hidden abilities, even the starters! Also this solves the No Guard Fissure Machamp problem. In...

    Pokemon on Disney XD now???

    So I saw this on Serebii's main website: It has been confirmed that the North American Magearna QR code will be given on the official website on December 5th, in conjunction with the airing of the new movie and sneak peak of the Sun & Moon anime on the same day on Disney XD Is the Pokemon...

    Do you consider Missingno a Pokemon?

    I thought about this when I posted in Pokken that I'd like Missingno to be a joke support mon. He could be like Blooper and "mess up" the opponent's screen for a little while. Obviously Missingno was never intended to exist but he's the most well-known "accident" in the series. So in your...

    Is the player character a Mary Sue?

    So I've been playing through Alpha Sapphire and made it through Omega Ruby as well, but I've really been analyzing the story I can't help but ask myself this question. Obviously in every game your player character is the "chosen one" who encounters all kinds of legendary Pokemon. I never...

    Hypothetical what-if thread :)

    This is a thread to discuss all the crazy what if scenarios we can come up with in regards to non-pokemon anime. I'll start by throwing out a couple topics... What if 4kids dubbed attack on Titan? (Definitely more of a troll statement but wanna see what y'all can come up with ;) ) What if...

    Gen 5's impact on the series

    I posted a topic like this when x & y were first announced and now that they're here, I figured I'd go back to it: what do you think gen 5's impact on the series was as a whole, in terms of concepts introduced, etc.? Honestly, as much as I enjoyed gen 5, especially white 1, I felt like it has...

    Gen V's legacy on the series

    I think this is okay because it's not speculation on Gen VI ;) So Nintendo is quite literally pregnant (9 months, eh?) with the new generation of Pokemon and Black/White/Black2/White2 will soon be delegated to the realm of "retro". What memories do you think this gen will bring? In terms...

    Pokedex for iOS!!! Gasp!

    So it's officially out in the states too, not just Japan. Has anyone downloaded it yet? I was just about to but i don't have iOS 6. What are your thoughts?

    Underappreciated Games in the Pokemon Series

    This is for talking about both main and side games, but what games would you say you really enjoy but seem to be underappreciated by the "mainstream" Pokemon community? For me the whole 3rd generation of main games seems to fall in this category for one reason or another... Ruby/Sapphire...

    Teams you made that you will never forget :)

    So I was reading a thread on a certain other Pokemon forum about nostalgic moments and got to thinking about a team that I made that I will never forget: I would say it was a "huge achievement" for me in Pokemon Gold because they were all relatively rare Pokes: I had a team of Meganium...

    Playing as the character opposite your gender

    I sometimes like the girl designs better than the guy designs (specifically May and Princess Leia, Lyra's pretty cool too). Does anybody here regularly play with the character opposite your actual gender? On a side note, am I the only one who thinks Hilda looks like Miley Cyrus?
