Sounds pretty legit, in my opinion at least

Currently making a YouTube playlist that'll ultimately have an individual theme for each and every Pokemon, including the infamous Missingno. The music doesn't have to be from the same franchise: it just has to be fitting to the individual Pokemon.

Haven't done all the obvious choices yet, since for some I might use a different theme than their canon theme.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6Y9N-wSgnKpPsWsj2GEl6NkBKCYDfJwU

So, have any music suggestions for my playlist? I've already did the Popplio evolution line and the Sun & Moon cover legendaries. I'm considering using a theme from one of the classic '80s horror movies for either Bisharp or Darkrai.

So, a bunch of new Pokemon have been revealed, thoughts?

I think that Iwanko, Nekkoala, Pikipek and Grubbin are well designed, but I dislike Yungoos. The fuck's up with its teeth? Anyway, I think that Solgaleo and Lunala are awesome too, and I'm going with Pokemon Moon

Yungoos' teeth are like that because it's supposed to be both always hungry and always angry. This is because it's based on the invasive species of mongoose in Hawaii in an attempt to control the population of a rodent, but it got out of hand since the rodent is nocturnal and the mongoose is diurnal, so as a result the mongoose ignored the rodent and starting gorging on the native wildlife. So it's not a coincidence that Yungoose is not native to the Alola region.

It's worth mentioning that according to official sources Solgaleo is kinda hostile towards humans while Lunala is revered as a guardian by humans. I guess this means that Lunala is the good Pokemon while Solgaleo is the evil Pokemon. I'm getting Moon version first.

It's crazy to see Pokemon the way that it is today. As a player of red/blue when they first came out in 1996, 20 years later everybody is wandering around catching Pokemon! A lot of the people who are younger than me are unfamiliar with the original 151, at least they don't know all of them (hey it's a lot). I enjoy seeing everybody out and about. The lures feel a bit lazy where people just post up camp and hang out and let the Pokemon come to them. I WILL BE THE VERY BEST LIKE NO ONE EVER WAS. Man.. 20 years. and yet, here I am, trying to catch them all just like I was 8 :)

I wasn't even born when Poke mania existed and I only started playing when Diamond came out, so seeing this is amazing to me. I actually rode my bike yesterday for the first time in about 6 years, and I can really appreciate what the game is encouraging people to do. It also gives me a small sense of what it was like when Pokemon was at it's peak back in the 90's, which is pretty comforting; to just see so many people out and about, catching pokemon.

It seems that Legendary Pictures, the studio who created Godzilla 2014, has acquired the rights for a live-action Pokemon movie.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/07/20/detective-pikachu-live-action-movie-coming-from-legendary-pictures

It's based on the currently Japan-only game called Detective Pikachu.

Anyone planning on getting the Sun and Moon Demo? Personally, I'm not sure if I will or not. I might watch some gameplay before I make up my mind

Anyone into the Pokémon TCG? I never really got in the competitive side since the Diamond and Pearl era, but instead started collecting after returning while taking on a lighter side of collecting rather than competitive play nowadays.

The Sun and Moon sets are quite difficult with the pull rates than X and Y...

Have not been able to purchase cards in awhile but during the short period I was playing the TCG instead of collecting, I had a real fun time playing.

I never really got into actually PLAYING the TCG. Some 15 years ago my friends and I were big into collecting and trading, but I think myself and maybe one other person I knew at the time actually understood how the game worked. I think I still have those cards somewhere though.


Sometimes the best solution is, simply, a swift kick in the ass.

I might watch it just for Ryan Reynolds alone

Starting this back up since there's no reason why should this be dead


Has anyone been curious about the Gen 4 maps before?

It's hard to believe everything in made in 3D, Ethan's model here looks good enough to be in a 3DS game or something!

I've never looked at any of the maps broken down like this before. Personally my favorite mapping is either X/Y or Alpha Sapphire/ Omega Ruby though. I think they the engine used for that generation was done the best.

It does take advantage of the 3DS' abilities, but I really don't like how pale the colors are on some of the Pokémon and Trainers though. I know it's meant to resemble the official Sugimori art but still...

It's been ages, but anyway. What's everyone's thoughts on Pokémon Sword and Shield so far? I really love Grookey and Sobble personally

Sword and Shield looks great, the new Starters look good and I am hoping Scorbunny will be a Fire / Electric or Fire / Steel possibly.
