What's up /po/

>What game is everybody playing?
>What point in the storyline?
>Pokemon you are currently trying to level up/catch/breed?

Currently high as fuck and working my way through victory road in Y Version.
It's been kind of tough, but I just caught a Druddigon and evolved my Zweilous into Hydreigon, so things should start rolling now.
Also working on leveling up my Pupitar.

Bump on fellow trainers!

Vaporean is an excellent eevee choice, your team looks killer.

I forgot my 3ds in my backpack the other day and it died, and turns out I didn't save my game since the very start of the game while playing Ultra Moon. Still have the same team, since I transferred them all at the start, but now they are all level like 18.

Just wrapped up a on-again-off-again 2 year Nuzlocke on Crystal. Lost 4 guys throughout the game, including my Dragonair in the battle with Lance. The surviving team members are:
Typhlosion - lvl 46
Gyarados - lvl 45
Kadabra - lvl 46
Noctowl - lvl 45
Electrode - lvl 45

It's been a long road, but hopefully it won't take another 2 years to finish the postgame

Can we talk about mewtwo for a second and how legitimately badass he is?

He is a genetic alteration of the first ancestor of all nonlegendary pokemon. He was created by humans. He is an abomination, not a legendary.

Yet he is still considered uber. Still banned. Even in gen 7 his Mewtwo Y is hugely overpowered. He stands up to all the legendaries and yet he is a human creation.

My mewtwo "Dillinger" is a bro. I soft saved until I found one with perfect IVs except in HP and attack. Timid. I used him in gen 6 to take down darkrais in triple battles online.

Just look at mewtwo Y. He's like a bastardized effigy of a hindu god.

I dunno just mewtwo is great y'erd? What are your thoughts on the legendaries and how mewtwo really isn't?

Mewtwo is a character. Every other legendary is a plot device; an animated universal abstract -- fire, ice, thunder, water, air, earth, nature, magic, technology, darkness, yin, yang, wuji, logos, ethos, pathos, space, time, creation...

These are cool, but they're constant. These are things that always have been, always will be, and always must be, or else nothing could be. They exist to do the perpetual, Sisyphean, vital work of the cosmos. Thus, they can't change, and can't have a character arc, and can't be strong characters.

Mewtwo, on the other hand, is created in absence of a role, and is subject to all the existential uncertainty, conflict, folly, resolve, achievement and ultimate growth therein.

Basically, every other legendary is the world around us, and Mewtwo is our experience within that. Mewtwo is us.

Maybe if they did a remix: new gyms, routes, starting town, new pokemon, actual story etc.

And starting with a pikachu that can't evolve would just suck tbh. Being able to choose any of the electric rodent pokemon might be cool though.

That'd be awesome actually. they should totally make a game like that, almost like the pokemon ranger or mystery dungeon games except more like an old school RPG. You could control your partner pokemon as well as your human trainer, who would be able to use items like pokeballs or potions to provide assistance, maybe even level up and discover unique classes/skills. I wouldn't mind having a pikachu the whole game if you could customize it into a more unique companion

I could totally go for that... making the pokemon more useful than just using them for fighting, CUTting trees, STRENGTHing rocks SURFing water and so on. Some finer bonding/friendship mechanics could make it a really good tool for learning new abilities, random loot and more...

what would really rock, though, would be another proper console addition. We have really good cel-shaded 3d graphics, we have the powerful hardware and we have the ability to cram at least four or five regions and a few thousand 'mons onto a disc with neato open-world mechanics.

think of it... a new Yellow Version, not for the handheld, but one that looks like the cartoon on a proper big screen..

10 year old me yould have peed his pants if he saw that... at 30 that still hasn't changed

That's true. I fucking love the comic so far and it started to create a really cool addition of the Pokemon world, I really fucking dig that. Don't expect it to be something that it is not, and instead appreciate it for what it is. Reels is a champ when it comes down to the page, but the book is not so much there. That doesn't make the page any less awesome, it just means you shouldn't be so invested in it in the long run. It's a short story and it's being updated very slowly.

Reels, I remember when you dropped this on here for the first time. If you are reading this, I think you should keep going, just to at your own pace and do it your way man. Yadon was the perfect mascot bro. Don't forget that.

OP here. Still only have 9 copies of Emerald. Sometimes I see copies of Emerald and the label and cartridge look perfect. I have to avert my eyes from it's shininess. There are a few things stopping me from buying more Emeralds now, it has jumped in price from £10 to £22. Also, it used to take me there days to beat Pokemon Emerald. I've been playing copy 7 for the past year and haven't even beaten the last gym yet. I also know if I buy another it won't stop. I have also stopped hoarding other stuff and given a lot of junk to charity. I am only keeping unique stuff of a certain colour. It makes me less tempted to buy random junk. There is still some ways to go though. I have multiple copies of other Gameboy games.

I don't care for the designs of either of the new version exclusive UBs. The poison one and its evolution are alright though.

I have no plans of getting a copy, I think my 3DS is fucked up after some shenanigans with an error during a system update a few months ago and my interest in Pokemon has faded to watching this one guy play showdown on YT sometimes and checking up on news.

why is cyrus helping anyone? why is anyone helping cyrus? he's not into mobster shit or world domination he literally wants to nullify existence and create a new one where he's the only holdover from the previous existence. nobody benefits from this but him, not even the bowl cut retards serving him, which I also never understood. was it because his team had the best outfits? I can't think of a single reason to join his team. I mean he was cool and all but his minions are dense.
