    I was working on Dexnaving a Vulpix in my Alpha Sapphire, but after two 90+ chains and a few smaller ones and over 400 encounters I decided to put it on hold and actually finish the game. I swept through the E4 pretty easily, got Kyogre in a Premier Ball, and now I'm working my way through the Delta Episode and catching the mirage spot legendaries. The Delta Episode is great so far, I had no idea there would be a whole new portion of the game added in, and I'm loving every second of it.

    Wow, 3 days of nothing...

    I'm back from my holiday in Norfolk, although I'm at my grandparents instead of at home. This means I have better WiFi and can use my laptop, at the cost of **** Pokemon nearby in GO and still not being near my friends. Luckily I'm only here until Friday, when I shall return home for a week before coming back :/

    I caught a Dratini last night in go and a 393 CP Eevee this morning on my way home in GO. Strongest is my 836 CP Vaporeon still, did evolve my second 353 Eevee into a 678 Jolteon the other day though (why it had such a shite CP I don't know, especially since the Eevee that evolved into the better Vaporeon had a worse CP).

    Finally have got a semi-proper IV, OU, Kalos Rules team put together on ORAS. The only thing left to do on a few of them now is Super Training. Fun.

    Ooh, nice! Super Training, not so much... what's your Kalos Rules team?

    I've got to start EV training my Psychic monotype team, not particularly excited for that. I then have to do the Battle Maison to get a Focus Sash, 2x Choice Scarf and possibly an Assault Vest.

    I need to make a Unova Classic team! Gen 5 is hands down my favorite generation and I must honor its legacy with Triple Battles!

    You do realize I hold majority of your team, and I can give you some of the needed items, I buy plenty that don't get used, they just sit on Pokemon in the PC that potentially one day, I will surely use in battle.

    I knew you had my Espurr, Smoochum and Bronzor (which is being replaced by Metagross, but I'd like to have the Bronzor nonetheless), but had no idea you had some of the items. We need to sort that out... eventually.

    My friend recently found their SoulSilver, so he wants to play through that with me. Since I have HeartGold, it makes the process easier (and more fun). All he knows he wants to use are Feraligatr, Togekiss and Umbreon. I'm completely fine with this, as I don't like Totodile that much (still do like it though) and I've used Umbreon before. Togekiss is a sad loss, but it's not a great Fly user. I'm probably going to make my team for that here, so you'll see pretty pictures and movesets :)

    I just beat Alpha Sapphire for the first time, and that was a lot of fun. I don't know how to get the fancy sprites into my post like snivy so I won't post my team right now, but it swept through pretty much everything. I got both Kyogre and Rayquaza in Premier Balls, but unfortunately I accidentally beat Deoxys so now I have to go rematch the E4 to get him back. I think that once I get Deoxys, I'll go back and finish hunting for a shiny vulpix, then finish the Pokedex, because I've never done that in my 12 years of playing these games. Any recommendations on doing the national Dex? Because I know it's gonna be a huge challenge.

    Images is easy enough. If you go on Serebii and find the Pokemon in the Pokedex (I'll assume the ORAS Pokedex, should be a link somewhere) and simply copy the image address (or something like that), then come onto your post where there'll be an "Insert Image" button up the top around the bold/italics/underline row. Paste the image address into there and there you have it! I hope that made some sense, otherwise I'll just find a link that demonstrates it. Play around with it.

    Anyway, congrats on beating AS! I've still not done it, cannot be bothered to. I wish you luck with your shiny hunting, Vulpix is worth it!

    I've been watching videos like this recently, don't know why. Seems like a fun idea though, and there are rumours about S&M and gyms I believe that may make this actually useful. Maybe at some point I'll convince someone to run this as a guild creative challenge or something, see what people think and what ideas they have. Who knows.

    Well, just got back from a convention this weekend, where I acted as a Gym Leader in the Pokémon Gym Leader Squad; well, technically I was cosplaying as Barry, but I was still part of the PGLS and I was distributing a wholly original badge. Anyway, I went undefeated the entire weekend, but I had a lot of good battles (many of which I will be posting on my YouTube channel thanks to my new modded 3DS). I even ran into Marashu from these forums, so it was the first time I've met someone from the forums in real life.

    Ooh, nice! Sounds like fun.

    New trailer revealed! Some weird stuff, old Pokemon now have new Alola forms (Exeggutor, Ninetales, Sandslash). Mudsdale has a prevolution and it's adorable, Yungoos evolves into Donald Trump some more and there're some new birds and new Grass types. Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iaav6J6XzFs

    I think my in-game squad may change now for Sun and Moon - was going to use Rowlet but there're some pretty sweet Grass and Flying types added that may make me change some stuff.

    First things first,

    Challenge Pokemon: Haxorus
    Challenge Rules:
    1 - Keep the Spotlight Pokemon alive during the battle.
    2 - Must use the Spotlight Pokemon for 3 turns total during the battle.
    3 - Have the Spotlight Pokemon get at least 1 Kill.​



    Needs more Ground-type changes to old Pokemon. And as for Rowlet, I'm still going along with it, Grass Starters are a must-have!!

    Not sure if there'll be any new Ground types; it was fairly plentiful in Gen I with Golem, Onix, Marowak, Sandslash, Nidoqueen & Nidoking, Dugtrio and Rhydon. Only types with more Pokemon than that back then was Water, Normal, Flying, Poison and Psychic (if you count Legendaries). With such a large amount of Pokemon with that type originally there's less Gen I Pokemon (assuming the regional thing is Gen I only, if not then ignore me) to make Ground, so chances are they'll all be made Ice, Dragon and other types. Also if the rumours of a Water type Arcanine are true...

    I tend to go with the faster starter rather than a particular type (don't know why, I've just had more success with Typhlosion/Sceptile/Infernape/Serperior/Greninja). Chances are I may end up with Rowlet since it looks to be the fastest, but I really like Lurantis' design. Possibly should've been either Bug/Grass, Bug/Fairy or Grass/Fairy, but whatever. It gives me Lilligant vibes, and I didn't mind Lilligant much. I can see a final team for me being Popplio evolution, Pikipek evolution/Oricorio, Salandit evolution, Lurantis, Mudsdale/Mimikyu and Vikavolt. All depends on what Rockruff and Komala evolve into really. Too early to plan, but there you go.

    My original plans be to use Regional Pokémon as well, but if something I like gets better, why not use it again, and I see your point as well, they only became Ice based on the climate they migrated too. I personally think they were created to kill Dragon's, so far all of the Alolan Pokemon have 1 type to kill Dragon's with, and I'm okay with that, really loving the Ice|Steel Sandshrew & Sandslash.

    Oh for sure. The team I play through S&M first may not be the same team I complete the game with. X&Y was a perfect example of this - my original team was Greninja, Talonflame, Gogoat, Pangoro, Aegislash and Goodra. I got up to catching Yveltal before restarting and playing through X. My final Y team? Greninja, Talonflame, Venusaur, Lucario, Gardevoir and Heliolisk. I'll probably end up mix-and-matching stuff when I feel like it. First playthrough I always try the new Pokemon out though.

    Icy Sandslash is amazing, Sandshrew looks like it's part-igloo! Adorable. I'm still hunting for one in Pokemon GO...

    I try to only use New Pokemon, I think the only game I've done so in was Gen 1 of course, Gen 3's Ruby & Emerald, FireRed & LeafGreen, and again in Gen 5's White since of course it only had Unova Pokemon first time.

    But before the games do come out I try to plan a team out time, but it doesn't always go as planned, I always find myself catching a Pokemon from another region.

    Yeah, seems like a solid plan. These new Pokemon look solid, much better than XY and maybe even BW. I'm excited to play these games now.
