  1. Greninja got first in the Pokemon Day popularity poll. Not THAT shocking since he got first a few years ago, but I thought he'd fall a few spots since the anime isn't boosting him anymore. Rest of the top 10 was pretty predictable. 

    10) Gengar, 9) Gardevoir, 8 ) Rayquaza, 7) Garchomp, 6) Sylveon, 5) Umbreon, 4) Charizard, 3) Mimikyu, 2) Lucario

    Umbreon being so high is the biggest shock, but even that isn't TOO out there.

      Umbreon and Lucario ranking so high makes me extremely happy. I'll admit that I would never have expected Chandelure to be the most popular of Unova, but I'm happy with it. Chandelure deserves the love.

      I quite agree with you.

      Didn't Greninja get crushed by Charizard? I guess everyone loves the pokemon that Ash lost with then. See, Ash didn't lose the Indigo League with Charizard. Charizard refused to murder a Pikachu. Charizard only lost the Silver Conference because the writers wanted to give Blaziken (who is at a type disadvantage against Charizard) some love. Allow me to explain: Charizard is Fire/Flying and Blaziken is Fire/Fighting. Fighting is weak to Flying (ever try punching a bird?). Now given that both pokemon used only Fire moves (that arena must've been extremely hot), they were only dealing half the normal damage. Now if Ash used Flying moves, he would've been dealing double damage. But the writers have to make Ash lose. They show us a genius through the whole season and make him lose in the end. 

  2. Finished the Gen 7 living dex, complete with regional forms. Not going to worry to much about Gen 8 since I don't know how I want to build everything (plus not everything has there HA that I want) and I'm not moving the Living Dex forward until doing so won't trap most of the Pokemon in Home. Going to start on breeding work. Been a LONG time since I was actively breeding competitive Pokemon instead of accidentally getting them while working on the Living Dex. Plus I'm going to end up doing some Gen 8 stuff so I'll still end up with a bit of a head start.

  3. One of my favorite song lyrics from last year is "404 not found".

  4. I want the 49ers to win because a Scooby Doo villain was the Miner 49er.

  5. In a little over a month SwSh have nearly sold as many units as SM have life time. 

  6. I mean, do we need another mod? The forum isn't super active and I can handle things by myself.
  7. Oh look, by years end over 200 more Pokemon are going to be back in SwSh. This is more or less expected. My only real question is why they didn't say this earlier.

      My guess is time issues were the major factor. For what ever reason they couldn't both have the full national dex and have the game out in time for November. That being said I do think several other things could have played not it. I do think they were going to have to try and have a game where all the Pokemon weren't programmed in. In another 10 year we'll likely have another 200 odd Pokemon, more when you factor in forms and what not. It was going to have to happen eventually imo. Might as well try it now and see how people react. I also think they bought into their "we did it for competitive shake up" a little. While they could have just had a rule of "only Pokemon in the Gala Dex" it was certainly another way to force it to happen.

      If they're all back I'll honestly buy the game. If you address people's issues with a game, they'll buy it. That's how life works lol

      I honestly never thought the Gen 8 would see certain Pokemon not returning. As it stands that could still happen but I think its less than 1%.

      Try putting them away in various locations.

  10. PSA for My Hero readers. Read the Vigilantes spinoff chapters 59 until the end of the flashback. Will make the recent chapter have more context.

  11. Anyone else find it funny that competitive Pokemon isn't allowing GigaMax Pokemon that haven't had events? Its like they looked at it and were like "it is not reasonable to make people grind out for these" and just noped them out via rules.

      So somebody literally says "Hey buddy, here's a free charizard" in the game?

      You get it from Leon in the post game.

      I see. I guess a charizard is a charizard after all.

  12. My whole team in Sword is level 100. This is new. At least now I can beat up on any raid.

  13. Rank 4 and 5 raids are actively trash solo. The AI was actively made to be awful, but if you don't want or can't battle with humans you have no choice but to try and put up with them. 

  14. Dear lord, I have 2,239,200 worth of EXP from candies. On top of 36 Rare candies. I've spent a lot of time doing raids.

      I've heard about how broken the EXP candies are, which is why (when I get the games) I'm refusing to use them until I'm donion rings with the story and filling the dex.

      I think I used some at the start to get one of the level 1 Pokemon I had caught up to the rest of my team, but yea, if you go all in on the candies the game becomes a joke.

  15. So, I've been trying to do all the Raid Battles as they showed up in the wild area. My battery hit 1% before I could do all I had available. Seriously, because of them I'm nearing 100 Pokemon caught and have gotten enough EXP candies to get everything but a Slow or Fluctuating EXP Group Pokemon to level 100 from level 1. Thats without using 1 of my 22 rare candies. Not to mention tons of watts and TRs stored up. I don't think I've gotten a single HA which is sad at this point, but man are raids SUPER worth it.

      I've yet to max out a single pokemon on Go.

  16. I need help with a nickname for my last teammate in Sword. Will talk specifics in a reply incase people don't want spoilers.

      I need a name for Frosmoth. The Ice/Bug type in the gen. Any ideas?

  17. I think one of my biggest issues with Sword/Shield is how insanely difficult it is to get Hidden Abilities main game. In XY you were limited in the main game to horde Pokemon, but you still got some decent options with it. ORAS had DexNav which made it a piece of cake and let you get anything basically. And Gen 7 had SOS which was more annoying than DexNav since you need to be able to check for the ability, but that was true with Hordes too. Gen 8 it is only Raids and from what I can tell they seem super rare. It even has the extra bonus that since the game just came out it is hard to tell where you'd even need to go to do the raid for the Pokemon you want.

  18. I mean, they could just post a written card if they can't find a picture. If the main reason they want to use a blank card is because the aesthetic of being in a card is preferable to a written cards, then in a similar way the card having art, even filler art, is preferable to just being blank.
  19. Is it really that difficult to find images for cards? Like, it can just be a filler image but having any art at all is preferable to a blank space imo.
  20. The starter Pokemon don't have preset natures right? Cause I got Jolly on my Scorbunny which is the actual perfect nature. Damn, thats a good sign.

      Maybe Gamefreak got upset or felt bad for players that kept resetting their games just to get the nature they wanted.

  21. Crap. I totally forgot to get the HA Passimian. Not the biggest lose, but kind of tilting.

  22. Listening to Game Explains Q&A about SwSh. Sounds like some of the technical issues people were seeing might be a result of the games not being legit.

      More likely people falsifying info to stir the pot?

      I don't think so. People were playing leaked/hacked/illegal copies so the game wasn't running as well as it should have. This made the "god GF totally half assed this" crowd all the more vocal. I don't know how well the game runs since I've heard some reviewers are having issues, but the leaks were making the game look worse to some degree. The question is how much. 

  23. Finally finished the XYZ anime. I still have the two specials that are part of it, but the main series is finally done.

      Wait... I thought he was talking about Pokemon.  Now I'm confused 😆

      Wait. You might be right. But that anime broke my heart.

      I was indeed talking about Pokemon. I can see why you'd think Yugioh for a second.
