Yeah, I can't even argue that. Second gen set the bar pretty high. I guess that's why I've always had high expectations for pokemon post game.

ORAS was another one with a disappointing post game, and it's because Masuda removed Battle Frontier.

>Interviewer's note: In short he means that they didn't include the BF because only a very small part of the players would have fully appreciated and made use of this feature; nowadays players get bored and frustrated more easily and they aren't interested in things that are so demanding/challenging.

Masuda's reason for removing it was complete bullshit.

Precisely. We haven't had a great post-game since the gen 2 remakes so anything looks disappointing in comparison. And they could totally do it again, but they don't need to because why spend the time and money when people are just going to eat up whatever they shit out anyway? I mean, shit, they could easily put you on an airplane (or that train just looming over our heads in Couriway Town) from Kalos to any other redone region at the end of Z and people would lose their shit, but not enough to justify putting in the effort.

>>227386
Wouldn't surprise me if that reason was merely a justification for keeping the budget down. It's blatantly obvious how much a BS reason that is, but it looked good enough on paper for them to pass it as an excuse.

He probably believes that the demographic is mostly made up of children. That's still not a good enough excuse when you're remaking the game.

Regarding XY's post game, I was too busy breeding and trading to notice that it had a shit post game, and I realized it looking back. I hope Z gives us more stuff to do rather than just capturing legendaries, and slapping on that lousy Battle Maison.

look when i was a kid i collected the cards just like everyone else, i dint know how to play the game.

that is until i was 22 and i found a old gameboy card game version of the game. i played the shit out of that and was surprised by how easy it was to learn and how fun it was.

now im 24 and i fucking love the Pokemon card game i would never tell anyone this because im not that autistic. i also cant play anyone irl cuz all the card game stores dont host them and if they do its a bunch of kids or big Ol nerdy fat people who i don't want to be around.

can we make a online game that is a huge rip off of Pokemon and allow people to build decks and play eachoter? is there something like this.

You get trainer tokens (coins) for every match. 90 coins/pack or you can buy a full theme deck for more. You also get season unlocks, the moar you play the bigger the unlocks get. Beyond that, if you buy packs of real cards, IRL, they come with codes or something like that that'll let you open the same pack in game (though not necessarily the same cards).

>gen wunners aren't all bad they are mostly misunderstood
>gen wunners also like second gen
>gen 1 and 2 are the same apples in most gen wunners minds*

when ruby and sapphire first came out most didn't have access too all the gen 1 & 2 mons. this might off putt players off coz they thought they would never be able too use their favourite mons again, by the time fire red and leaf green came out they might of lost interest not too mention the gba titles ending with lack of gen 2 starters/legendarys being in circulation.its also mentionable that alot of kids could not afford emerald witch became the hub for all the mons caught in R/S & LG/FR. battle frontier created initiative too continue playing/play pokemon differently, meanwhile alot who didn't own emerald probably stopped playing. this is most probably why gen wunners are gen wunners


(marril and togepi were used in the show to transition fans into gen 2 seamlessly)

Gen 1 had magnets with eyes. You're just viewing your childhood generation through nostalgia tinted glasses.

Also apparently Vanilluxe and those pokemon have something to do with Japanese mythology in which normal objects take on conscious aspects but I'm not really defending Vanilluxe

I thought about it, can't really understand why you'd go out of your way to post on /po/ to say "I just like the old games".

Are you trying to convince us the old ones are better? I mean I can understand if you came here to be like "hey can you help me find new pokes I like?"

Just kind of a debbie downer thing to do. I should go to /woo/ and say that Hulk Hogan and Greenburg were the best and nothing ever will ever compare to them. Then when people point out better wrestlers I'll say "no just doesn't stick"

Have you tried just not lamenting over pokemon and find a different game to play? I'm not gonna go to /v/ and tell them halo 2 was the best and that halo 5 just doesn't stick.

Nostalgia just seems like it's for people who don't want to try new things.

I dunno. I am made to feel like a weirdo from normies who don't understand I genuinely like where pokemon has gone in terms of mechanics and designs? blah blah gen 5 blah. I just see people going like "REMEMBER WHEN THERE WERE ONLY 150 AND YOU KNEW EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERYTHING" fuck that, there's what? 718 now? not including megas? I know enough about them to enjoy it. I like getting surprised. I like having to study. I like complication, I'm 25 years old and 1st gen pokemon was retardedly straightforward. Mewtwo+psychic over and over again. I thought it was retarded that dragon type was basically the "boss" pokemon type.

We needed dark and steel just like we needed fairy.

If you have BW2 why not try to do a monotype to clear the tower/tree? That'd be pretty badass/boastable. Well assuming you don't choose steel or dragon mono.

Also OP if you run a solo rattata he better have 4 perfect IVs because that's about 1 in a million.

I always have Kanto-based dream team ideas, based on the notion where I'd actually be living in Kanto in real life. Where Legendaries are just stories and I'm just an average Pokémon trainer Joe.

So there's lots of theories about Ash's world. He's in a coma, it's a post-war society, etc. Now let's say Ash is not in a coma but it is a post-war world where most of the adults and young adults went off to war and died, Lt. Surge probably tasered them all to death with his Riachu, seeing as he's "Merican and the regions the show is set in are obviously part of Japan except for Unova and Kalos which are other regions not associated with the mainland of Japan that Gen I, Gen II, Gen III, Gen IV seem to take place in. So I present you with this. Are all the Nurse Joys and Officer Jennys that claim to be cousins are actually clones with fake memories? Cloning works in the Pokemon world as we know with the first movie and gene replication of ancient Pokemon fossils. I'm too sober for my own good. But seriously, how the fuck do they staff every Pokemon center across Japan and in America and France (Unova and Kalos, it's a stretch but you know it's true) with the same person and claim they're all cousins?

Yes it's a show, yadda yadda yadda, but I'm too sober to take it at face valuer ight now.

Wouldn't they just clone them? Probably still have genetic defects though due to genetic drift. All that time Brock doesn't realise they're gagging for it but they can't because the babies would all be harlequins with shitholes in their belly buttons.

Hidden abilities are easy.

Hidden power is a bitch but it's niche. It is useful on a handful of mons where it might allow you to lure in specific hard counters with quad weaknesses or who can't hit you hard but can tank your shit, and catch them off guard, also greninja getting STAB on HP fire means it can carry off some KOs that almost no other HP fire user can. Basically it's usually HP fire or HP ice because those are about the only hidden powers which catch a lot of very dangerous monsters hard enough to care. Even then you're basically taking the move to handle maybe 2 monsters at most. And only them.

However honestly you've got six monsters and you should have those types of moves somewhere out there. Ice is about the best attacking type in the game and fire while not amazing hurts a lot of steel types who otherwise wall entire teams. Being "forced" to take Heatran, Talonflame or a megazard is hardly the end of the world. You can fit one of them into pretty much any team type ever.

Anyway my point is Hidden power is niche.

If you want to compete but cba to breed then use pokeshowdown and play a sim. You can get whatever IVs and EVs you need and hidden powers are actually almost viable then.

I also bred (using random monsters and destiny knots) a bunch of synchronisers which make legendary farming easier. If you're happy with 3 good IVs and a decent nature it takes 20 or 30 minutes to get a suitable legendary. Maybe an hour if RNG hates you. I'm not a perfectionist but my modest heatran losing 5 speed, 3 defense and 15 attack doesn't bother me when he's max hp and sp atk and just belches heat waves over the enemy team (extra points for rotom chucking WOW at him).

Actually rotom is a bit of a bitch to breed but even that isn't bad once you've got one with 5 ivs. Which it has a bunch of formes, quite a few builds work in any forme. It's more you might need to breed more rotoms for additional roles. For example a modest rotom will work in any forme at all, you want your bulky modest rotom wash to be a fire type attacker? Okay now it's a bulky modest rotom - heat? Actually your team needs grass type coverage, ok…

You under estimate my typing speed. But yes, either way that supports my point. In the mean time it's taken me longer than the life of this thread to decide on a mega for my doubles team.

yeah, I do pokemon in cycles. I prefer being part of the competitive breeder-tier master race. I just don't play pokemon 24/7 365 like some people do. I have shit to do. Can only squeeze in like 2 hours per day sometimes.

>links to the next iteration of the main Pokemon games somehow

So far, it looks like only the first generation will be available, but I'm sure the rest will come via updates. What do you guys think?

It hurts to see so much wasted space on the dead. They should clear that area and turn it into another film production office so we can keep shooting in NO. You guys have a bomb ass film incentive, I spent 6 months filming there almost two years ago

I agree for the most part, but it won't happen. The city claims them to be "historical" and a huge "tourist attraction" to the city. Hell there's a huge hostpital that's been closed since hurricane katrina that they wom't tear down for the same reason. Anyway nb for not being pokemon related.

At least it looks interesting. Here in California (and elsewhere on the west coast, and I'm sure elsewhere in America in general, but less so in older states) you just get massive fields with shitty little plaques instead of interesting, ornate headstones 9 times out of 10

it's about history and economics

the older a grave, the more likely it belongs to a rich person who could afford some baroque testament to how important they were

the west coast's population boom (mid-19th-mid 20th centuries) corresponds with the expansion of the middle class, people who only wanted/could afford a little space to say "someone i loved is here now"
