    As I'm sure you're well aware, sites aren't free to run and so we run leaderboard adverts to fund the site. These ads are often specific game ones run by Sega etc.
    To make sure we get relevant ads as much as possible, could you fill out this survey my ad network is running? It's 100% anonymous and will just help us keep relevant ads on the site

    It's open til April 3rd

    Prankstar 73 zzz....

    Yes I know it'll never happen, but I hope to see my old favorite Azumarill back on the PotW. It didn't make it on 4th gen, and it's received some wonderful new tools such as choice banded huge power, aqua jet, etc.

    what about supplementing new POTW with updates on previous POTW? That way you can continue in your current direction while featuring more than one pokemon at a time. I realize some pokemon haven't changed that much (if at all) but a few have and i think the extra content weekly could be welcome. This might have already been suggested too. thanks.

    I think you should cover the legendaries, or maybe cover how theylearn the moves in their moveset.

    Hey guys you should rethink Charizard.... I mean running Solarpower means manipulate every nice spa that charizard gets. Keeping Timid Nature run: Fire Blast, Solarbeam, Focus blast, and HP electric. All weaknesses covered. Since u only use this in sunlight running a choice scarf is actually quite destructive..
     
  6. I think you guys should but dragonite or scrafty as the next pkmn of the week.

    Did you read the first post? At all?

    The pokemon are picked using an RNG almost every time. Exceptions to this exist, but only when there is a need to.

    There's not many Pokémon left to cover for 5th gen now, and I'm pretty sure it'll end soon for this generation of POTW. So yeah, if you just figure out what's already been done, you'll easily see the few left.

    (And as a side note, most of the POTW entries are fully-evolved pokes, so there aren't many left at all.)

    Actually, as there are around 350 fully evolved pokemon (not including the alternate forms of anything), we haven't even hit a third of these pokemon, leaving plenty of possibilities open.

    And don't worry, we're planning spectacular things for Gen VI :)

    What if you had a list that people choose who is on there and RNG that.
    Because a big problem is that in 4th gen PotW is that a lot of people weird pokemon favorites didn't get picked.
    Maybe for gen VI then.

    And if you unlocked the old threads, say alakazam, that way if anyone ever came up with a amazing strategy they could post it there. You wouldn't have to update the page, but it would be helpful.
    These are merely ideas that I thought of, (maybe someone else left these? IDK) just me trying to help improve the pokemon of the week.

    Aww... I honestly love the entries for stuff like Farfetch'd and Unown...

    But I understand it. Keep up the PotW entries!

    transform/ditto's hidden ability can be useful if you know how to use it

    Mr. Timn with an "n"!

    like killer draco said, the op states that the process is completely random and won't be voted on. personally, i'd like to see chatot done before pokemon x and y come out, but it's not going to happen unless the random number generator happens to pick it.

    I would like to see a Regigigas or Articuno, but In the next week, Druddigon appears in the anime, he has a decent movepool and good attack.

    Im sorry for my english....

    I would love to see what people can think up for Lapras, but I'm probably not random number generator. Keyword is "Probably". XD

    I can see why the number generator is used. If we chose the Pokemon, then all the good Pokemon would be done at from the start, and nearing the end of the generation, all that would be left would be the BU and NU Pokemon along with most of the UU Pokemon. It wouldn't be fun at all.
