So I want to start getting into pokemon romhacks. I fond this
Which are completed games. I don't know where to start. And all the fan reviews are so drastically skewed its not even helpful. I've messed around with a couple, what are some romhacks worth really diving into?

I'm okay with difficulty. I'm just trying to figure out which ones are the most fun I can have with this. I don't care if they happen to be amateurish I'm just looking at this from a perspective of sheer dumb fun here.

The original hack was Pokemon brown. It was a hack of pokemon red/blue but included pokemon from other generations. I haven't played that one yet, i'm too used to fire-red graphics by now.
Instead I've been playing Rijon Adventures which is a remake of Brown but a hack of Fire-red. It's pretty entertaining so far, im about half way. Challenging and original. Includes gen1-3 pokemon so far. Apparently it includes Johto and another fan fiction region for the post-game.

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.

Holy shit, this fight was intense. Gengar really came through in the end, though. His disable/substitute combo was absolutely clutch. Red gifted me those Kanto starter mega stones for winning. I finally bought Pinsirite and unlocked super consecutive singles. Noice.

The non super modes are a lot harder this time around. I've not yet unlocked doubles but I got the other two. Went over to a friend 's and we battled back to back against red and blue they didn't have a chance to be honest for singles I abused beast boost. Nihilego and kartana got me a lot of wins then I had... something it didn't even matter. Nihilego with sash usually set rocks (to break sturdy and sashes and make it easier for kartana to pick up KOs) and might occasionally sweep or do some damage with it's sludgewave/pyschic/power gem and focus sash too.

I've barely touched supers though I haven't unlocked super doubles yet. Once I get round to that (which will be after I make my explosion team) I will have my pick. My ORAS doubles team of heatran, rotom W, ferrothorn and mega kanga isn't quite an option so I'm thinking pelipper, koko, celesteela and heatran. If that doesn't work I'll build something around tapu lele. Did I mention I like raw power? That thing's psychic hits harder than a hydreigon draco meteor, an attack which OKHOs things like "most rotom builds".

My heatran is utterly clutch in doubles. So much raw power. My strategy is usually raw power in doubles with enough resilience that I can either thwart or just ignore most enemy strategies and grind them into paste. Don't get me wrong, there's a lot of calculating and working out how to beat specific match ups involved.

Battle Tree was nearly impossible before the PokeBank update. I think everyone was using the Ultra Beasts except me. I still don't have any of them since I'm too lazy to catch them.

Also, you reminded me that I need to try using Heatran more often. I used to use it all the time in the meta game, but I'm rusty as hell right now. All I remember is how great its defensive typing is. It certainly wouldn't be a bad idea to use it on my team.

As far as doubles go, I haven't touched any of that. I've never gotten into it as long as I've been playing Pokemon, and I feel like (I could be totally wrong) it's something I have to dedicate more time to learning.

Doubles is fun actually it does take a little getting used to but it makes the number of broken monsters smaller because there's always 2 things on field to counter it.

My heatran was max special attack with max hp and it just shrugs off even neutral attacks and hits back hard. The typing and ability are good but it's stats are fantastic too. Mine's 100 with perfect IVs now. During the doubles ladder at one point it ate soemone else's heatwave... shit got real very quickly.

Also I got my shiny modest venusaur to 100 so now it's a shiny modest 6iv giga drain venusaur for mega forme funtimes. I am quite happy with this.

Anyone remember this cringe fest, especially that one track with Misty trying to get in Ash's pants?

It was kind of disappointing to get. I remember hoping it would at least have that song they had a Japanese and English version of on the outro of a couple shows once, then pulled them and replaced them with one of the regular outros for the reruns.

That one is embedded deep in my brain. Once in awhile, when I blazed enough, lines from that song will just start pouring out.
This could also be due to at least once I recall falling asleep with the CD on repeat, and the songs just playing out in my dreams.

I haven't been on in ages either, I seem to remember a lot of drama bullshit happening that would better to just let rest. I never had a problem with Loskene personally, I think the board wanted to drag mod and he kinda played into it by getting all pissy but it's not my place to blame or judge anyone. I just remember the "/po is love" days, the board may have just been hit by a wave of insufferable summer douchebags (my opinion at least) so bad that people stopped having fun and visitors started dropping steadily after a while. That said, things are looking pretty nice here now, albiet sorta empty. Hope we can all be Pokebros again

I installed pokemon moon on my 3ds, and got a new3ds right after (that fucking pikachu one man). If its the same deal, you just need to do a transfer process between the two which you can look up. It transfers all your information/account shenanigans from the one to the other, and will take a long ass time. But yeah you should be fine.

installation takes a little while but just keep em both charged and it's easy. the main issue here is if you find the 3ds itself uncomfortable, and whether you get the regular or the xl. there's a lot of grips to choose from that make it much more ergonomic. the best one is the hori monster hunter cross hunting gear but it looks like that's never gonna go back down to 20 bucks, so you would be better off with the cybergadget or dreamgear grips.

Didn't like this when I gave it a go. Is there still a semi active community of people playing it now? I haven't seen nearly as much coverage about it in a considerable amount of time. The whole thing seemed like a bit of a fad that ran its course to me.

yeah semi-active is the word, it's not dead or anything, I still see people playing it on the streets, but it's nowhere near as big as it was during the initial wave of popularity. not even close. during that time there just wasn't enough to do and you could tell it was going to fall off the radar after the majority of the playerbase reached a leveling plateau and ran out of things to do. And then they did. This new update could have extended the fad period were it released then, but only for a few more months at best.

Yeah, they really did release a game that was half done at best. Before Gen 3 comes out they'll be working on rolling out trading and battling, so that's a plus. Honestly, I still find it fun and at the very least, a good reason to get out of the house. I'm lucky to live in a state that has a really good community for it, documenting and updating nests.

I have played on and off roughly since launch. At this point the only ones from gen 1 that I don't have that are not region locked/legendary are Hitmonchan and Kabutops (only just got a Kabuto recently after hatching a ton of eggs.) Gen 2 the only ones left that I have are Mareep's evolves, Sunflora, Unown, Wobbufett, Girafarig, Shuckle, Sneasal, Donphan, Hitmontop, Miltank, and Tyranitar (minus Delibird and Smeagle who are not in the game at all I believe at the moment.)

The evolve items are few and far between. I have lucked out and gotten 3 dragon scales, 3 metal coats, and 3 king's stones but have only gotten the 1 sunstone which I used to get a Bellossom.

I quite liked the design on vikavolt. It's got an insane special attack and I thought it might be good in a trick room. In single player it was a letdown because by the time I could evolve my charjabug all the good moves had been long passed and I had to go to the move reminder to have good coverage for the elite 4.

However if I want an electric sweeper who can decimate things with a shitload of support (which vikavolt is) Xurkitree is just better (it can also set it's own electric terrain). And if you're in a trick room facing the oh so meta torkoal then Xurkitree has much better odds. All vikavolt has going for it is access to bug buzz and ground immunity. Which I don't think beats better typing, more bulk and beast boost.

I know it was just the generation's common bug but it just needed a little more... something to be genuinely viable. Maybe a little more bulk. Slightly better movepool. Or a more offensive ability. If it kept battery that might even be enough. Maybe I'm wrong though and actually I've just not spotted that it's got a perfect partner sitting around somewhere. I just noticed it gets flash cannon... shame it doesn't get earth power and sludge wave instead though)

I thought it might make a good trick room option. Run with torkoal and just beat down anything the heatwave can't. I really love taking reasonably bulky but brutally offensive monsters (my archetypal monster would be heatran or azumarill, utterly devastating attackers who are able to take a hit) and just smashing enemies down with them. On paper lurantis might do that but actually I agree, it's shit.

I had a good think about it. The speed isn't awful because it's slow enough to underspeed non trick room pokemon and if you're against another trick room you can always try to turn the room back off. It has good bulk and the BP of it's solar blade makes it quite a hard hitter. It's abilities are useless though. Essentially its niche would be a more offensive trick room sun abuser. Use growth and then just smash down stuff that torkoal can't break.

What breaks it is not that ferrothorn is bulkier and has better coverage, or that amoongus is mo…

yeah it's just tragic. there's just nothing lurantis can do to justify itself. I love the little bastard too. and I cant use it in a shit pokemon battle cause I'm usually running pokemon like Dunsparce (best mon ever) in those, so it would end up overpowered. blaaaaaah.

I swept my friend the other day by using agility on it but any lycanroc with accelrock or choice scarfed super effective anything would kill I think. it's pretty gimmicky. fun though. more usable than lurantis at least.

I haven't used it much yet but that thing has the best in battle animations. the devs were clearly having a lot of fun animating that thing.

Hmm agility vikavolt would work.

I think that or put it in a sun trick room team. Actually it can use solar beam and would work well in a sun room team. Thunderbolt, Solar beam and bug buzz. Only thing it can't seriously fuck up is kommo-o who largely sucks.

I do wish it had gotten battery or just a little more bulk, it'd have made it a really viable monster.

Well I guess next time I down a run of breeding that's on the lost after all though. I've got enough 5iv stuff sitting around it won't take long and the island means everything gets passively trained.

Shit I just remembered who did disappoint.

Golisopod. The fact it kept emergency exit breaks it. It's bulky, but gets STAB leech life and has the right stats to abuse that. Emergency exit means it will switch in and get to just first impression more but if something just hit me I'd rather sit in and hit it back with a same power move THAT ALSO HEALS ME. And being so slow, it rarely hits first then gets beaten the fuck back out. Golisopod usually loses it's attack if it's hit hard. It's ability confines it to first impression spam.

Might be entrainable but that's a whole other kettle of fish.

Aquaranid has probably been my favorite for some reason. It's just nice to have a tanky water/bug who benefits from the leech life boost. Ribombee is like the exact opposite, but they function great together which is probably why I kept them on my team.

>When did you first discover pokemon?
I was 6 and the cartoon was what first caught my eye. Saturday on KidsWB. I loved it but it was just another one of my cartoons until...
>What were your first games
The first one was Pokemon Stadium. Only like the second or third game I had for the N64 I got for my birthday, pokemon became an obsession easily.
Yellow was the first real game I played, followed by Crystal then Sapphire.
Also Snap and Stadium 2 followed a few years later.
>What is your favorite game?
HeartGold/SoulSilver no question about it. Omega Ruby was okay but everything in HG/SS just clicked perfectly.
>What kind of trainer are you?
Never been competitive really. Truth be told--most of my friends could easily tear me apart in every evenly matched pokemon battle and they usually were pretty mean about it so I quickly learned to only trade pokemon with people and leave battling for the nerds. I only casually play Sun/Moon right now and already people are irritated with me for how long its taken me to finish the main story.

Fire. All my favorite pokemon are Fire it seems.

1998. Toys R Us.

Gold/Silver. The amount of content is insane compared to later games and it's almost all centered around exploring the game world, rather than grinding.

>When did you first discover pokemon?
When it first came out, kids at my afterschool started bringing cards in

>What were your first games?
First one was Red version, but I convinced my parents to get me yellow too even though it wasn't too long after R/B came out

>What is your favorite game?
Platinum came out just as I was getting my friends back into it. I have the fondest memories associated with all of getting together to trade and cook poffins

>What kind of trainer are you?
I'd consider myself something like a pokemon ranger. I enjoy doing playthroughs, and I like the differences between each game, even between older versions and remakes. I guess I enjoy the overall journey too much to focus on particular aspects.

>What's your favorite battle format?
I don't really have one, when I battle friends I usually ask if it's ok to start with a double and then finish with a single

I love my legal legendaries. Last season you needed terrakion or landorius really because while other monsters could counter mega khan (who centralised the whole meta) none did so without being useless for anything else. These guys justified a spot on your team even without mega mom.

I've found legendaries are often clutch as fuck but most of the battlespot legal ones are not team centrepieces.

Meanwhile UBs are the opposite. Some are broken but celesteela aside (I'm still not 100% sure it's better than ferrothorn in every way but I need to field test it properly) most are extremely powerful but brittle and need support. Xurkitree for example has 173 base special attack and beast boost, but average defenses and moderate speed. It needs to be protected and/or given speed support to sweep. Pheramosa is frail as fuck and karana and nihilego are reasonably bulky on one side but frail as fuck on the other. Kartana at least has a good defensive typing nihilego does does not and if you even say "earthquake" its focus sash breaks and it faints.

The exception to what I said about legendaries is that the tapu's field setting moves are a big deal. Especially in doubles. That said I'm looking forward to using modest tapu lele in singles. It'll probably do a better job (not quite as fast but not timid anyway, more special attack though) than my modest specs hydreigon did last season though the question is whether to use specs or psychium Z as one gives me more reusability but the other lets me stay in and switch moves.

If you don't want to use legendaries in doubles I'm guessing torkoal +a chlorophyl user or torkoal + trick room oranguru + tsareena is probably not a bad way to go.

I thought it was really strange that they made most of the UBs weak to fire, so then I figured it was to make sure that they won't be abused in comp. I'm not ready to play on that level yet because I'm still building gimmick teams and getting used to the battle systems, then pick the best out of those to fill my final battle teams. If the meta is going to require UBs then I'll have to start thinking of training a few for practice. I'm liking Nihilego and Pheromosa but I have a sneaking suspicion that Celesteela is going to be seeing some screen time with that insane Defense stat.

Are megas still viable or is it all about the Z-moves now? I imagine they play a huge role now because of their power so as I spec moves I'm trying to keep in mind that I may have to use Z-moves eventually and also throw in a Protect move here and there to cut damage. Using and fighting against the Tapus also looks like it's going to need some planning for, especially Tapu Lele. Some of those terrain changing moves look like they're going to be a pain to deal with because you can't inflict statuses on the relevant Tapu while they're active. I've taken a real liking to the weather changing moves and have most of the Pokemon and moves centered around Harsh Sunlight and Hail in two of my teams.

Some of those abilities that capitalise on weather conditions and affect hit rates or charge times on big moves like Blizzard or Solar Beam are really cool. The Froslass I have planned is basically going to be a Blizzard cannon once she's set up in a match. I forgot that Drought was a weather inducing ability and that will make a really nice combo with my Sunshine team for doubles games, thanks for that advice.

I don't think you'll NEED any one monster but legendaries and UBs are both options which bring a lot to the table. The tapus will bring a lot to the team but also self support while the beasts will need a lot more hand holding but can yield more.

Celesteela has great defenses and great attacks, it has the movepool to abuse both. You can EV and nature it so it gains attack boosts on KO or boosts one of it's defenses. It learns leech seed and giga drain, can do earthquake and some fire coverage and it's main STAB heavy slam hits like a truck as it's 120bp on most of the game and it's typing is superb. It's going to be a top 10 monster this generation all generation long. It's not unbeatable though, it's not as bulky as the likes of ferrothorn so it can be one hit by a few things, it's not particularly fast or particularly slow so it can be worn down or crippled with burns and it's attack stats while solid are not outstanding.

I see nihilego as being viable for an offensive hazard setter, but otherwise solid but outclasses. Pheramosa is super fast but I think needs a sash or a a lot of support or else even neutral priority moves can KO it. I mean azumarill will have no trouble taking it down with aqua jet, talonflame is still around etc. Might pair well with tapu lele as per your image. That's also probably another meta as fuck core.

I always felt like fire is a mediocre attack type on paper but just hits so many otherwise really hard to harm things hard and ends up being mandatory on every team with any element of offense.

They added new weather setters this gen for every weather. Alola ninetales wants a word with frosslass. Coming back to the tapus I think field effects will matter now too. They each block some statuses and have other effects. Psychic terrain doesn't stop status but prevents priority. Misty terrain stops all statuses but doesn't boost attacks, it just cripples dragon moves. Which sucks when the setter is fairy tbh.

I'm thinking drizzle pelipper plus tapu koko + thunder with a life orb KO's a lot of shit. Pelipper can run ice beam and a 100% accurate hurricane and a boosted hydro pump as well so the…

I just made this thread to let you all know that Brionne is the single most adorable Pokémon of all time and I love her.

I agree Brionne was too damn cute, the courtesy animation and sound was perfect which makes it hard to evolve it to Primarina because it really does lose that magic when you do.. its just not the same ;_;
