    Default Dark Gym Leader missing!

    There hasn't been gym leaders with dark-type pokemon yet. Especially not much poison-type gym leaders since Koga.

    Why hasn't there been!? We need those type of gym leaders next!

    Question Considering catching up on the pokemon franchise.

    Hello all, recently I have considered returning to playing pokemon something I haven't done in 8 years. My interest has recently been reignited and well considering how time moves onward and services close down in regards to online features I figured it was worth asking prior to making any actions.


    Would it be possible for me to transfer my collection of pokemon from Diamond/Pearl (those are the last 2 games I played prior to stopping 8 years ago) and jump from generation to generation up to the most current or would something prevent me from doing that?

    The transfer chain from Generation IV to Generation VI (and soon VII) is unbroken, so it is doable. You'll require at least one game from each of the involved generations, however, and the first leg of the journey requires a second system. And as you can only send over six Pokémon in one sitting, transferring an entire "collection" is a task of considerable time.

    You'll have better luck asking further questions in the right place.

    Default Got back into Pokemon games and bought Pokémon X & OR; want to play online now

    Sorry if this isn't the appropriate forum for a post of this type (mods, feel free to move it if you need to).

    I decided to get back into playing Pokémon (after an 11+-year hiatus from my GBA days) a few weeks ago. I bought a New Nintendo 3DS XL and got Pokémon X and OR and have already pre-ordered Pokémon Sun.

    I actually played the original Pokémon Ruby game back in the day (though I sold that, along with my GBA, way back then) so I was a little familiar with the story and adventure. However, I did wanted to try out the mega evolutions and well as using Primal Groudon. Hence, I've mostly been playing this one first to get it out of the way and with the help of a strategy guide (lol), I've already beaten it, just starting the Delta episode (and this was without the help from a bunch of level 100 Pokémon that I got from trades); in fact, I started playing OR on Sept. 2nd and beat the Elite Four (and the champion) last night.

    But I digress; anyway, the main point of this point is to let you know that I now want to get into the online functionality of these games, specifically battling others and participating in tournaments. I'm assuming that there's a dedicated forum about this kind of stuff but I wanted to inquire on how I can play against members of the Serebii.net forum, as well as trading with members of said forum. I see a lot of you have your Friends ID codes in your signatures (as well as some other credentials); I'm guessing I should do that as well? Please help a novice out lol.

    Default Pokémon Nickname List

    Over the years I’ve had a lot of Pokémon to name and, being a bit of a wordsmith, I really put my heart and soul into finding exactly the right fit.
    And so I’ve complied a fair list - full of characters from various mythologies, pop-culture, Latin and Greek words, Japanese words, and just plain unusual words that seem to fit either the elemental nature of Pokémon, or the ‘battling’ lifestyle.
    I recently decided to ditch my coffee-stained notebook, write it up and share. I hope my fellow trainers find it useful, and if it can save one Pikachu from being named 'Sparky', I'll consider it a job well done!

    Hello everyone,

    This isn't a rant, although regarding the shenanigan I have been put through the last couple of days it makes me want to rant.

    As you know, Smyths are distributing the Shiny Yveltal over here in the UK until the 19th September. I went over to my local store and was informed at the time that they didn't have any codes. So, lesson learned, I opted to call them instead. After 4 attempts at getting through to them via phone I called a different branch only to find out that they are "being told not to distribute the codes even though they have them as it expired on the 15th" (this being the branch I rang not the branch I had issues getting through to, they said they couldn't find out about the branch I tried to get through to).

    Does this mean that the event ran out on the day they told me instead of the day that the event allegedly ended on the website? I am in a kerfuffle!

    That's, uh, nice and whatnot, but it's not really something that needs a thread made for it.

    Angry "Pokémon should be like Fallout 4..."

    Seriously?
    I was hearing a Pokémon music when I suddently saw the comments and one of them, oh my Arceus!
    (S)He said that Pokémon must have a "greater story" just like Fallout 4 and that, without this "upgrade", Pokémon is just a average RPG (in other words, nothing special).
    The saddest part is that many people on the Pokémon fanbase thinks like this. I lost the counts of how many times I heard/read someone saying"Pokémon should be more adult", "Pokémon should be like GTA", "Ash must f*ck some girl RIGHT NOW!" and other bizarre/nonsense things.
    BTW, if you want Pokémon Hentai, Google is your friend.
    But WHY? Why some Pokémon fans want to transform the official material in something that is not Pokémon? Do you want a "Pokémon Shippuden"?
    NOTE: there's a difference on making a Pokémon fanfiction and try to transform such fanfiction in something official.

    Because different people have different taste. Opinions and such. Some of them are trolls.

    BTW, regarding Google and the Pokemon hentai, I'll pass.

    ... The hell is this?

    Also, who gave you the right to dictate what Pokemon is and isn't? Not that I agree with Pokemon Fallout Version, but we are getting Bottle Caps in Sun/Moon...

    I've always found the whole "Pokémon should be more adult and more like X game!" thing pretty stupid as well, but the best thing to do is just ignore it.

    Or argue against them, whichever comes first.

    Uhh yeah this isn't really a great start for a thread. If you want to express dissatisfaction with these views there's a thread for that here, but keep the "hentai" stuff out please.

    Default If You Could Alter One Thing About A Pokemon...

    Simple question, we all have Pokemon that borders as our favourite, but sometimes there's one major nitpick that prevents them being on the top of your team.

    Is there any element of a Pokemon you'd love to change, be it design, type, attacks or ability?

    In hindsight I'm not sure if this belongs in Create/Rename Anything thread or not.

    type changes:

    nix poison for gengar. As the original ghost, it shouldn't be weak to the type ghost was meant to counter. Also, what is with that weird mega? But it's still one of my favorites. ^_^ If it got an alola form, I would want it to be part fairy...(because it's precious)

    fairy for dragonite? I mean really. And it looks like we're not getting an alola form either for it, which would've been a perfect opportunity... but still love it too.

    I feel like darkrai should have a secondary typing... either ghost or psychic

    fairy for mew?

    nix fairy for cottonee line and give it to lilligant line. Also why is snubbul line fairy?

    dragon for charizard. I know there's a mega, but still... sometimes I feel they should introduce third types.

    Design changes:

    the ears on noivern... I know sound is sort of its thing, but they look really ugly

    shiny coloring on dragonite (and a number of other dragons, for that matter) to not be that weird green. Espeon too. a light blue/blue-lavender would have been nice. And shiny rapidash's mane should stay blue like ponyta's is.

    I didn't really like sylveon's design. I feel a design something like espeon would've been better for fairy eevee. Just look at the gym leader--she looks like she would totally match an espeon.

    I'm sure I could come up with other things, but that's it for now.

    Weedle line: Seriously, how can Bug Buzz not fit Beedrill perfectly? Plus it would be a more creditable bug type attack for the species (it took them long enough to get a good poison type attack).

    Pikachu line: Just cut the formalities and have it learn Iron Tail naturally already. And cut Raichu some slack already. If you're not going to give it a Mega Evolution form at least give it one unique token post evolution attack like so many others (it's only benefit is getting to relearn Thunderbolt and Quick Attack from any level).

    Meowth line: Give Meowth at least one 60 power level normal type attack to perfectly take advantage of Technician and be strategically powerful. Either let it learn Persian's Swift (and make Power Gem more remarkable to counter balance Meowth's Pay Day) or give it another productive move, Covet would fit the species perfectly for example.

    Magikarp line: Give Magikarp one really powerful move, but at a VERY late level, just to reward those trolling gamers for their Magikarp full run. XD
