>>What kind of trainer are you

Maybe read some of the replies. Good job beating a kid's game. That really defines your playstyle.

This is like saying
>I don't know how to play PC games

>When did you first discover pokemon?
Some time between the release of crystal and R/S. But my first game was either blue or yellow which my friend group traded around so we held copies for a week or two. I didn't even play G S or C so I thought Johto mons were introduced in Colosseum for a long time.

>What is your favorite game?
Yellow is my fondest, but I think I enjoy Pearl the most.

>What kind of trainer are you? What's your favorite type?
Bird keeper. I like to fly about, train birds, & look at bird pokemon. / Flying

>What's your favorite battle format?

I do not battle humans. I do pay attention to tactics for my favorite games and work on teams just to see them work on in-game trainers.

I picked up PoGo a few weeks ago to play with my coworkers, but I've noticed a few mismatched in typings. For example, ice attacks should be not very effective against my Jynx, but they are average effectiveness. Has anyone else noticed issues with typings? All the issues I have seen are specifically with dual-typings.

Also general pogo thread.

I walked around for 3 hours for the squirtle event and my face has been totally cooked by the sun, but I have a shiny blastoise with sunglasses and hydro cannon so worth I guess.

And now that trading is a thing I finally met up with one of my friends and we swapped phones and searched through what each other had. Maaaaaan I just got hit with this feeling of nostalgia just like the good old days as a young child when my friends and I would search through each others' cards for potential trades.

Also I sometimes wish you could trade with friends from anywhere in the world instead of people right next to you. I would love a kangaskhan without taking a vacation and blowing money on plane tickets to get one virtual being, which isn't going to happen. I'm told you can hatch them but I keep hatching the same shit over and over.

Come on now. Taking the piss with that.

Seriously though, the lack of a national dex in Gen 7 really bugs me, one of the things I always liked the best in Pokemon was filling up the whole national dex and registering them and really catching them all. Using the included Pokemon bank Pokedex just ain't the same.

I was never a dex completionist myself, but the lack of a National dex in Alola bugs me too.

I liked registering the Pokémon I had caught over the years and even if it wasn't a complete dex, it had a certain unique element to it because it was Pokémon I had seen and captured; my journey if you will.

Also Rotom was pretty annoying. I miss the robotic Dexter voice of the anime....

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?

No. The others embody things. They don't "fall under". Moltres and Entei aren't "sort of fits into fire" they ARE FIRE. They are just fire in animal form. Even Genesect is a cyborg abomination it's just not just the product of technology but it's defined by it.

Perhaps Mewtwo represents humanity though. I mean that's what defined mewtwo.

I subscribe to the theory that pokemon are advanced military bioweapons from an ancient war which littered the planet with them.
But there's also an implication that the "trainer journey" kids go on is a somewhat fictional construct. Kids set out thinking they're gonna be the best or whatever, but actually receive a philosophical education on the duality of existence, or something. But it's a fundamental part of the way the post-war civilisation has rebuilt itself and a vital coming-of-age process, so it's an accepted part of their culture that adults don't interfere with these kids' worldview, and instead basically roleplay whenever kids are around. What I mean is, groups like Team Rocket are essentially actors who are LARPing as antagonists. Ten-year-olds do not literally fight the mafia.

Thing is, that's a reflection of the role the games play in reality: Pokemon is a game that you buy for your ten year old.

So there's a narrative symmetry which is integrated into the design of the games, and I think that's deliberate based on what I've heard about the design philosophy. It's a lot like how every Metal Gear game is canonically a virtual reality programme being played by some "jack" who represents the player themselves. My point is, this enforces narrative constraints: something can only really be canon if it can work dualistically.

So the "Legendaries" must be a fucking lie. They're creatures based on legends, sure, but they're created by man just like Mewtwo because ~~they're all man's creations because it's a gameboy game~~

In the manga, mewtwo regards Blaine as his brother, since he used his own DNA in the creation of Mewtwo when he was working for Team Rocket. Mewtwo wasn't just created by humans, he's a human-pokemon hybrid

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..

I want a pokemon that adds, variable starting difficulties, that way it isn't so easy if I'm still playing pokemon when I'm an adult (I am). I'd also enjoy an emphasis on player choice in story. Specifically, I want the option to focus on a specific type or characteristic and receive recognition in the game for it. I want to be able to ultimately start a pokemon gym based around a specific type and battle new trainers as the end-game, but I also want to be acknowledged for not choosing a single type if I don't do that.

But really, I just want to glorify my team of bird pokemon.

Did you ever play pokemon Colloseum or XD? Something like that visually with more content and options would be ideal, I think. Also, remember when you could have your pokemon following you around in HG/SS? yeah, they should bring that back

long ago I thought it would be great if you had a little more freedom with how you pursue the gym challenge- i felt like all gym leaders should have three "ranks", the first being "amateur" (3 pokemon max, lvl 1-20) the second being "novice" (4 pkmn max, level 20-40) and "professional" (6max, lvl 40+). The premise being that all gym leaders would have teams for each tier to accept challengers of different experience levels. Defeat two gyms at amateur level and you advance to novice, defeat 5 gyms at novice and you go pro, and if you defeat all 8 gyms on PRO rank, you become ranked "expert" and can challenge the Elite 4. But basically once you rank expert you get more character and post-game options, among them being maintaining your own gym (probably something of a 'bonus' gym, like the karate dojo or trick house) and would be able to set teams for each ranking as well as customize those of your gym trainers, the puzzle layout, etc, similar to a hidden base. Maybe even set up environmental effects for battles. That would be easier to do on a hack of previous gen now tho, since it's gone full 3D.
I was checking out a thing for a pokemon tabletop I saw on here a while ago, it seemed a little impractical in places but it was a good rough setup, one of the things it went into was more distinct player classes you could get into based on your playstyle, which provided various benefits to the player. Type specialist was one of the player classes available, and it looked interesting in that they all got bonuses based on what type they specialized in. I could see the various achievements for character class being used to unlock stuff like outfits and accessories and possibly access more class-specific items and equipment.
