>Play Pokemon Heart Gold for the 1st time in years

>Pick Chikorita as my starter

>Get all the way to the part of Cherrygrove city where you go and collect the Mystery Egg

>Go to where the scripted rival battle between Silver is before making the treck back to New Bark Town

>Grind my Chikorita up to Level 10 and decide to save my game since my rival most likely picked the fire type and since this is the remake I bet it knows Ember which would royally fuck with my Chikorita something fierce

>"Sorry there is already a previous save file on this device which means you cannot save. If you would like to start a brand new game, please enter the title screen and pressed Up Select B to start a brand new adventure"

This shit right here is one of the WORST fucking things added into the remake. The Gameboy games never fucking had to worry about this because if you wanted to start a new game and erase your old save file it just let you do it. Why was this programmed into the game? A safety precaution because too many younger siblings would go and grab your gameboy and then just erase your savefile since Pokemon games are only programmed to have one save file per game.

The man who came up with that design concept should have been fired

Do you really think you can come up with an infinite pool of good ideas without changing the boundaries of what is considered acceptable?

That's not to say they will all be rubbish forever past a point just that over time quality will trend down overall. I mean the vanilite family is still the worst design ever despite 3 subsequent gens. But it's something they peaked at a while ago. People expecting 80+ amazing new monsters are asking for the moon on a stick at this point.

I suspect every region has been a bit half arsed to fit in the pokemon cliches and stuff. Some of it felt forced some of it was absent. Hammerlocke felt like you got Dover (or any large extensive fort castle) and Winsor castles to fuck, then removed the bits of Winsor that were town and filled them with it. No white cliffs, no black country, no moors (North East or South West).

Hello bros, I come from the distant land of daycare on 4chan, where we've been cooking up something good.

I'm part of the team that's working on a Pokemon fangame based on Scandinavia. Our region is called Forenti and it's home to many cool, cute, and tough Pokemon, like the starters pictured in the thumbnail.

We're hard at work developing maps, spawn rates, sprites, and anything you could imagine.

However, in Norwegian "Forent" means "United", and that's what we want our project to be. We're trying to connect all corners of the Pokemon fandom to create something that all fans of the series can enjoy. No offensive humor, no inside jokes, just fans of the series working passionately to make something people can love just as much.

That's where you all come into play, we're always looking for more people to help us out as we work to make something great.

>What can I do?
Anything! We're primarily looking for programmers and composers at this stage in the game, but any help is appreciated (even if all you can do is give feedback on designs)

Come join us and play a part in something great!

We’ve lasted very well so far. This thread was posted months into development and development continues at a steady rate every day; besides this board, we have gotten people from all corners of the Pokemon community with 0 issue. We appreciate your concern but we are not the 14 year olds who bring down the board and site’s reputation, the game is to be seriously written in a tone and style that matches the series.

As for the artwork, I thought it was pretty implied that this is not finalized, we’re not gonna have every mon’s official artwork done by different people; however, while we still discuss design philosophy and changes to be made, we feel it would be a confusing and pointless decision to create Sugimori artwork of designs that are subject to change. Rest assured that when the dex is completely finalized. Pretty immature response from someone trying to call the board we originated on immature.

Regardless, I understand your assumption and likely can’t change your mind, but feel free to stop by if you’d like to help out. We actively hold polls on different designs and things of that nature, there’s always stuff to do.

Oop, I ended a sentence prematurely.

Rest assured that when the dex is completely finalized, consistent artwork of all mons will be produced. Getting caught up on Sugi art while the game is actively in development is such an amateur move that causes many projects to never finish, there is no reason for us to have it at present.

>Starts up the grill
>Puts some burgers on

Does anybody else just miss the good old days? You turn 10, pick up a Pokemon, travel the region to catch other Pokemon & collect gym badges, fight other trainers, mean rivals & gangsters? Nowadays, everything is just so complicated! Too many Pokemon, the rivals are all wimps instead of jerks & bullies, the evil gangs have these cockamamey schemes of a new world order...

Heck, even the trainers are too soft these days! What, with never having to change their box if they wanna catch more Pokemon, default EXP share, trading with people through the internet instead of in person like the good old days. I heard that there's even a FAIRY type, now! Can ya believe it?

>Flips burger patties

The way the rivals, professors & the champions always holds their hands, these darn kids will ALWAYS be kids! Apparently, legendary Pokemon will even come down & clean up the messes caused by the kids & the evil teams! when I was on MY Pokemon Journey, I NEVER had a legendary waste their time by helping me, nor did I ever expect them to! Today's Trainers need to pull themselves up by the bootstraps & fix the messes that they create!

But, hey, maybe I'm asking too much, because believe me when I say that I have seen Cryogonals who don't aren't as big of snowflakes as these kids! What do you expect when you send them all to Safe Space City to go to the Fairy Type Gym so that they can get their Participation Badge? Heck, they're probably gonna just download their badges through their Rotom phone apps in a coupla years... & then, there's the friggin' media!

All the media & younger trainers talk about these days is "gigantamax, Z Moves, mega evolutions, EV training..."

I just wanna battle, for Mew's sake!

>Serves you your burger as he throws on another pair of patties.


>Opens cold can of Pocket Monster Energy Ultra

There is only ONE first Pokemon, & that is Mew! Not AR-SEE-YUS, not Bulbasaur, not friggin' Rhydon; MEW! That's what my parents taught me to believe, that's what their parents taught them, & it's what the missus & I teach to the boys! If you believe anything else, then ya ain't got your head one straight!

Oops, managed to accidentally post.

Was going to point out I caught all 150 when there was 150 +1 that you couldn't get outside Japan or maybe one event that happened once in your country. I'm as much an old fart as you.

Honestly most of the new shit is good. Pokemon training is a young man's game but now I have a life and job and responsibilities all this quality of life means I can still get on with my life and battle. You wouldn't be sat around this barbequeue if you were a serious trainer back in the day, you'd be breeding 900000 pokemon and iv training. And the lack of exp share? It was tedious. Psychic types terrorised everything and no one had an answer.

Your journey was never difficult, it was just about putting in a load of effort. Do you really think those gyms weren't going easy on us? Seriously? You think Brock actually fights with a level 12 onix seriously? Nah it's just something he grabbed from mount moon to make sure the kids weren't slacking off. His real team would have buried your little charmander in a single rockslide and no amount of scratching away would have saved you.

The real problem isn't all the advances but that all the love and attention, the friendly folk whose houses we could wander into, people who'd share their stories with a kid. It's gone away.

Greetings /po/kemaniacs and trainers -

In an attempt to jump start some discussion / content on this board lets plan to host a Pokemon Sword / Shield tournament sometime in the near future.
We all know that we can jump online and play ranked matches anytime so lets do something a bit different.

Generation 8 (Sw/Sh) is now five months old and brought several new faces to the franchise so lets focus the tournament solely on the newcomers.
Format will be exclusive to new Galarian Pokemon only (minus Zacian, Zamazenta and Eternatus) in 6 vs 6 single battles.
For an idea of tournament legal 'mons check the link to Serebii below.
(Note - Serebii does not include Galarian variants of previous Pokemon on their list such as Galarian Weezing - these 'mons are also legal!)

For anyone who wants to participate but is new to the battling scene breeding and training Pokemon is now easier than ever.
As a community we are here to help - feel free to post in this thread or come chat with us in the #po channel in Discord.
I am happy to provide and help train competitive pokes for anyone who needs them.

Details such as time / date as well as potential prizing will be determined later based on interest.

So what say you /po/ - up for trying something new?

I'm fine to tear it up on this board one last time. Even if my competitive knowledge is severely dated.
We haven't had a tourney on this board since gen 4 I think.

We should definitely use Showdown for this kind of thing if it actually takes off. We used another sim last time and I completely forgot the name.

I haven't been around any Pokemon community in the time since these games came out. When I saw the tweets about how Game Freak "fucked the game up" by cutting Pokemon and MuH AnImAtIoNs, I cringed beyond belief. This is the kind of shit that makes me hate being a part of any video game fandom. If it plays good, who gives a fuck what it looks like (EX: literally any classic arcade game)
All this to say, this has been the most fun I've had with a Pokemon game since Gen 4. It's also the first game I actually FINISHED since Gen 4, since no other Gen could hold my attention like this one. The story isn't great, but its Pokemon. The story has never been Shakespearean (regardless of what everyone wants to tell you about BW.) I'm absolutely ok with them cutting half the Pokemon. Nobody cares about the new ones BECAUSE they let you have the other 700+ that you liked before. It also just made me care more about my old favorites that WERE in the game just that much more. SwSh was fun, and anyone on the fence about it, stop reading the negative rhetoric around it. They're Pokemon games. If you liked them before, you will like this one. Everyone who hates it made up their mind months before the game came out.
This is now the thread to discuss all the great things about this Gen that everyone wants to gloss over when deciding that Gamefreak bought a review from IGN.

I love it personally. The original game got me emotionally invested more than pretty much any other game. Im playing through the post game now. Its easy to pick up but it gets so nightmarishly hard eventually. Multihit moves like Bullet Seed or Fury Attack can be an instant death sentence. Confusion and sleep are both pretty busted. Its definitely a game you can easily pour a few hundred hours into if you enjoy it.

They added a couple of ways in gen 7. I don't know about 8. On 7 you can just leave your monsters training and they get 4 evs per half hour. Or 15 minutes if you use beans on the pelago. I don't know about 8 but every generation they've made high end battling less of a time sink and RNG grind and more something you control.

They have made breeding easier too though it still gets easier as you go. The more 5 or 6 iv pokemon you have the easier it gets to make more.

I'm really out of it, the last thing I did was dreamed up a team for doubles SM then never got round to testing it. However I'm pretty sure a lot of people had the same idea and it was meta as fuck.

Tapu koko and pelipper, though I think most people didn't go for such an offensive pelliper. That rain Z move hydro pump is as lethal as the electric surge rain light orb thunders. Heatran and Terrakion in reserve because they always solve problems. If I'm playing a player there's a celesteela (would have used ferrothorn in previous gens, maybe I'd have gone back to it) and I never settled on a 6th monster, maybe Tapu Lele with choice specs. I figured her psyshock is about as terrifying as my gen 6 hydreigon's rotom crushing meteor but probably a better single player choice than doubles one.

Currently playing battle tree super doubles and it's going alright. Anything those leaders can't handle tends to REALLY dislike heatwave, rockslide and usually close combat as well. That said I might be about to get haxxed to death by a double team absol...
