It all makes sense in context.


In my 18 years of playing Pokemon, I have never been interested enough to watch a video to see a Pokemon pre-release. Today, Sandygast and Palossand changed all that.

The Sandcastle's ability sucks, I can't believe it doesn't get Arena Trap or Sand Stream. I'll shout this from the rooftops until the day I die.

Yeah it seems really bad. Raising your defense when you get hit by a super effective move is already not that great since you're already heavily wounded. But its raising defense against water attacks, which are almost always special. So what, it can get hit by surf one turn and then die to it the next? Great.

Hopefully it will have a hidden ability that's actually good.

EDIT: Oh I guess since we're all doing this

I liked it--it was witty enough and a lot more impressive than I was expecting for a girl's toy cartoon. So I thought, "Hmm. I'm on Something Awful. I don't see a thread for this anywhere, but other people might like it--it's not like it would be the first cartoon for kids that SA's taken a shine to." So I made a real earnest thread and put it up in TV/IV. And I was both right and wrong, because the forum blew up and fell over, and the thread got raided to shit by FYAD, and in like I think two weeks the show was banned outright because people kept causing fucking drama.


Aaaagh I can't decide

All I know Fo Sho is that I really, really like Magnemite and Magneton. Magnezone it's been eight years and I'm still not used to the way he looks, because I'm a stupid idiot, but I love that line a lot. They're so CUTE! But also tough, and I love Electric and Steel types, and and and

I can't decide between Venusaur and Heracross as my favorite pokemon. They're both my bros that have been with me since Leaf Green. Mudkip is a great pokemon, Duskull is a super neat design, a single Furret carried my team through an entire Gold nuzlocke, and Honedge is too cool not to have on my list.

My favorite team was Scoliopede, Mr Mime, Espeon, Vaporeon, Gliscor, and Smeargle, that was a baton pass team that never attacked, and it was the only fun I had in competitive gen 6 before smogon mercilessly banned it, and I'll never forgive them.

My favorite team was my in-game team for Diamond: Torterra, Honchkrow, Golduck, Lucario, Bibarel, and Luxray.

Those guys were the best. I need to get them moved from my Diamond into the bank sometime.

Maybe not a good team for competitive, but I've always liked them.

Crosspeice posted:

I sometimes wonder if they'll ever create another Pokémon like Phione: One that's able to breed like any other Pokémon but it's only available via trading with others. Like if they created only one, gave it to someone and then that person bred it and traded the offspring and so on until it spread to nearly every player.

It's probably unlikely due to the fact that it'd be easy to just cheat for it if its already programmed into the game but it would be interesting to see.

Stufful lore posted:

The truth is that Stufful doesn’t really like being touched. It hates being hugged tightly and will flail its arms in protest.

Bewear lore posted:

When Bewear is acting in a friendly fashion, just swinging its arms around, you must never dare to approach it carelessly. It is acknowledged to be a dangerous Pokémon, even within the Alola region. You may see warning signs posted near places it resides.

When Bewear grows fond of its Trainer, it may show that feeling in a fond embrace—but the force of that hug is tremendous! Trainers must teach these Pokémon how to restrain their strength when showing affection.

RIP.
