How cool of a throwback would it have been if Game Freak finally officially acknowledged this thing in game as an ultra beast? That would have been some actual good G1 pandering.
>small relatively strong snake
>larger snake that can reliably whoop some ass
>suddenly a giant orange barney the dinosaur with tiny ass wings bearing 0 resemblance to the previous pokemon
What the fuck where they thinking?
Hey /vp/ what do you recommend for a good first playthrough team?
>lose the "defending your title as champion" match
>you don't actually lose your title
Can we have a cat pokemon thread for the greatest day of the week? All felines allowed!
>still complaining about Kahili being a literally who
Have none of these people played a Pokemon game before?
E4 who never appeared outside of elite four:
Bruno (is mentioned by Brawly and certain NPCs, though)
Aaron (though a similar character was mentioned in B2W2)
Siebold* (he is mentioned in one of the restaurants, though)
*i don't count battle chateau
Alola may be the first region where the Elite 4 aren't a bunch of whos
btw this is my favorite Wholite
>Forget that dumb Anabel girl
>I'll show you something much better, hm?
>do you like it?

Has anyone here played this? If you haven't heard of it, it's a Pokémon rip off but all the Pokémon are cute girls.
Has the Pokemon Company begun selling gen 7 merch besides the the starter and Magearna plushes?
I wanna get my hands on a Stufful plush.
A random girl comes up to you while you're playing Pokemon S/M in public.
>"Are you playing pokemon anon? That's cool. What is your team?"
>*you show her as she looks over your 3DS and she sees a Primarina and a Tsareena*
>"Ew, are you one of those furry weirdos or something?"
>*she notices that you picked the chicken-chan trainer as well*
>"Are you a pedophile anon?"
no memes, the only correct answer is to look her dead in the eye, smile and say yes, you are a pedophile.
She'll be fucking triggered to shit but won't be able to do shit and you'll get mad keks.
We all agree that this is the best ship in SM, right?
Mods are asleep
Acid and Acid Spray are now super-effective on Steel-type.
Aside from Ferrothorn and Mawile
also Klefki but who cares he got nerfed already, who gets hit?
The STAB you get from your secondary type is 1.33x instead of 1.5x and when checking type effectiveness, the secondary typing is only checked if the attack is neutral to the Primary typing.
So a Grass move hitting a Fire/Water type would be ineffective and that same grass move would be super effective on Water/Fire. If the Pokémon was Normal/Fire, it would be ineffective.
Has it ever been explained why some of the Ultra Beasts look like some of the main characters of the game?
Does the "Battle Royal" game mode run like pure shit on the New 3DS? (Frame rate)
Are you ready for the UK region, /vp/?
I can't stop watching....
>literally impossible to actually get surf on this in-game, even with pokemon bank
>smogon sets make it use surf exclusively anyway
what did they mean by this
>even with pokemon bank
What? Everything I'm reading says even if you do the everstone thing or transfer up, you can't even get a kanto raichu. Why would a surf pikachu event transferred from any other gen not turn into an alolan raichu?
>fast as fuck and has high attack
why is no one using it? many weaknesses?
You know how usually the E4 is LITERALLY WHO?
Well with SM they aren't literally who and are instead characters you've already met
except for Kahili
so when you go in expecting another character you've already met, you get a literally who
cue collective interest
stop oneshotting everything you piece of shit i don't want to use beast balls
Is there a way to get more than one Lucky Egg in Sun/Moon? I know Kukui gives you one, but there seems to be no agreement over any additional ones.
Serebii doesn't mention a chance for an SOS Chansey to carry one, but is this confirmed or just not up to date? Has anyone managed to Thief a Lucky Egg off a wild Pokemon?
Why wouldn't a SOS Chansey not have one? Just bring someone with Frisk, False Swipe and Thief to see if any have them.
Sneasel line is perfect for this combination to keep in just one poke, but you can always interchange between pokemon.
>This is what your typical Gamefreak apologists sound like.
>lets make a challenge to capture 100 million pokemon
>but you have to register in the festival plaza
>but you have to have a global link account
>oh, and breeding doesn't count
GEE I WONDER WHY IT WON'T REACH THE GOAL
Let's talk Protagonists, the design of these seems criminally overlooked often.
Who is your favourite? Do you usually play as male or female? Do you like the redesigns of characters over remakes / sequels? Was Lyra a mistake? Why do some look late teens (Hilda, Serena) while others look 10? (Moon, Leaf) Why don't the new protags have canon names yet?
Personally I'll never forgive them for what they did to Brendan and May in OR:AS
Hilda / Hilbert a fucking best
No idea how they managed to make them looks so simple yet incredibly urban and also somewhat older. They really fit the theme Unova was going for. Hilbert seems like the closest thing we've had to another Red since literally ever.
It was GF finally taking the hint with online communication, it wasn't PERFECT, but it was a foot in the door, Festival Plaza feels really gimmicky and gratuitous by comparison
Truly for as shit as Gen VI was in hindsight did they really have to take THIS away from it?
I was really upset about Festival Plaza. PSS was great. Everything you needed was right there in front of you all the time, convenient as fuck. It's baffling that Game Freak would scrap it.
All right, so by now, we all know why Mimikyu is disguised as Pikachu- because it's lonely, and it knows that Pikachu is super popular, popular enough to have a ton of merchandise flying around not just the real world but the Pokemon world as well, while it's not nearly as loved. In addition, it hates bright lights, hates people looking at it even more (either the sight itself, or Mimikyu's anger, killing any who peek beneath the veil), and according to the Anime, its mimicry of Pikachu does not mean that it likes the electric rodent at all- it instead hates it...

And if the Pikachu merchandise was in the Pokemon world, what's to say that an event similar to Electric Soldier Porygon wasn't? An event where a Pikachu, through bright, flashing lights, sent hundreds of people into seizures, and everyone pinned it on Porygon- causing Silph Co.'s creation to plummet into hateful obscurity while Pikachu danced in the limelight, having gotten off scot-free?
Would it not, therefore, make sense that the ghosts of Porygon that were deleted or abandoned after this,...

You know this thread is going to be shit as soon as you notice the (cont).
Instead of playing the game, or doing something actually productive, you spent your time creating this headcanon. For what purpose? How long did this keep you up last night?
