Looking for a website that has a functioning rom for some of the older games (Thinking Gen 2/3)

Where do you folk get your roms from?
Do people still play roms?

emuparadise is the best one. if you wanna play gen 2 go for the emulator edition of crystal. it gives pokemon who evolve via trading simple stone and level up evolutions, and pokemon you couldn't get in crystal are there now, but are rare encounters. idk if there's such a hack for emerald or frlg though.

Use Troll and Toad. I've been getting occasional single copies on it, and the cost isn't THAT bad if you figure in the idea that you would have to buy a LOT of booster packs to get any one specific card.

What's up my dudes, i just started playing moon for the first time, been playing since pokemon yellow so this is a pretty cool thing for me that I've been putting off.

However I wanted a certain party in mind but the pokemon are transfer only, so i'm basically here to beg for them is any of you have them, while also starting a trade general.

I'm looking for a Duskull and/or lotad. the evolutions work but the lower level the better! my friend code is 1435-8895-7646

I think from how low key the announcement was, this is gonna be a sparsely expanded sequel/remake. maybe they'll expand the town that got taken over by team skull, do a few new alola forms, or add some shit to festival plaza to make it less boring, but I don't think we'll get anything substantial like a full island or something. I might skip this one.

>switch game
we'll get one, this is a stopgap so they can keep the series relevant and keep a stream of income until they can get a switch game finished. it's gonna be a lot more work than normal and judging by interviews on the subject, they know it. idk why people thought it would be done this soon. you look on other forums and people are outright pissed that the pokemon stars rumor turned out to be a dud. did they really think it would be done this fast? or that it was a just gonna be another pokemon yellow but for sun and moon? the real switch game will be gen 7 and have nothing to do with alola.

What ability does it have?

I have used whimsicott to great success but essentially it lived by grace of focus sash or resistances. In doubles with 4 of the following: taunt, fake out, protect, tail wind, beat up (terrakion as partner).

Though I know someone who ran a bulky leech seed.

Anyway the point is that the best build is the best build, that build will have one or two optimal natures and maybe 2 or 3 other okay ones.

At the end of the day what you can do with non optimal pokemon pretty binary, either you end up with a version of the same build that isn't quite as capable of doing the things it should, but it's good enough to handle the things you need it to, or it's not good enough. Your team is weaker either way but in the end we can't give you a good answer until we know what you want to do with it.

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.

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.

>muted colors
nobody ever talks about this but I hated that so much. a lot of the shinies aren't vibrant anymore either. parasect got it the worst in the color department imo. though I'm pretty disappointed in that model they use for Musharna. other pokemon like koffing and torkoal get real smoke animations and for musharna they did this ridiculous static smoke tentacle.

other than that though I remember being really impressed by the new battle graphics when x and y came out. I just wish they had spiffed them up a bit in sun and moon. I bet the colors will still be muted and boring on the inevitable gen 8 switch games though.

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.

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)

>>228900
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.
