this is really the inescapable moral quandary of pokemon: its fun to make them fight

its really the fundamental moral quandary of animals/beasts in general: its fun to collect, play with, control them (and eat them) but they dont always want to be collected, played with, or controlled, (and they def dont wanna be eaten)

Behold the Glory of Revolution, My Comrade!

Freedom is not Free, sometimes you need to bleed the Oppressor Scum to send the message. Unfortunately, as Comrade Meowth Zedong made clear, sometimes innocent lives will be lost in the process of purification. It does not matter - their sacrifices will forever be remembered, as they shall be as martyrs for a free world!

BUT!!! Do not listen to filthy Plasma lies - they betrayed the revolution for power, for money, and turned liberation on its head through their revisionism!

Medium Doris - Sun, 18 May 2014 13:26:09 EST ID:efRnMdlz No.224708 Ignore Report Quick Reply
N is one of the main characters in gen 5. Some spoilers follow though I tried not to spoil too much plot and have just not mentioned the bits not relevent to N's arc.. though there is more to him and the main storyHe was raised among pokemon and barely saw humans. As a result he could communicate with pokemon but feared people who he had only witness cruelty. Skipping the plot spoilers, he was bent on freeing all pokemon from captivity but in his travels he met many trainers whose pokemon told him the same thing, they loved their trainers and liked being with them. Among those obviously, the protagonist. After being repeatedly defeated he accepted that pokemon often have shitty trainers but that pokemon enjoy battling and enjoy being with people. Though he does hope that one day these bonds can be shared without both people and pokemon being trapped by pokeballs (which he sees as something necessary but hopefully not forever).

Black and white was actually a clever naming scheme because it wasn't just "here's two things that go together" but also the theme of the game was that even good ideals can be destructive when taken to extreme, that seeing things in black and white without compromise is destructive (reshiram and zekrom destroyed the whole unova region in their fight of truth versus ideals in ancient history which is part of the metaphor) and N himself embodied this. Depending which game he picked he either chose the unrepentent truth that he thought pokemon all hated their masters or the ideal of setting them free but regardless of his ideal the outcome is the same. That might seem shitty but actually it's consistent with the theme. In the end the protagonist teaches him to consider other views and compromise. I'm suspect Kyurem the grey dragon represents compromise making either truth or ideals stronger.

So there will be a ranked season of 6v6. No items which I guess means no megas but it could still be fun. As much as I like 3v3 and am building a team for it, it's often over before the first attack whereas 6v6 becomes about the battle itself. I imagine setup sweepers and walls will be much stronger here without choice and boosting items. Walls benefit from leftovers but turning 2HKOs into 3s and 1s into 2s changes the power of a lot of mons. Your nasty hyper offense pokemon might be strong but without a choice band that enemy might get a dragon or quiver dance off and outspeed and KO you.

Anyone else excited by this turn of events?

I had a better picture but it wouldn't let me upload it.

Yeah, of course. Anyone who's a regular here knows how much I bitched about wanting 6v6 in ranked.

Fuck it. Fine by me.

>No megas

I'm not a huge fan of mega Pokemon anyway... I'm cool with that.

>I imagine setup sweepers and walls will be much stronger here without choice and boosting items.

With that being said, I know I'll be using Slowbro, Hippowdon, and other annoying walls that carry recovery moves.

Yeah I suspect I'm going to have to switch up my team a bit for sturdiness. Also means I can use some different mons. Intimidate DD gyarados comes to mind. Or maybe multiscale dragonite. Also makes having a taunter that much more useful. And clerics or status absorbers. Wish I could use my celebi as it'd be perfect. Natural cure and recover.

Gliscor? Though it won't be quite as good because it won't be able to gain status immunity and healing right away. Makes hippodon more inviting though. I should breed a regenerator slowbro at some point, just annoy the shit out of people by getting a lot of very cheap switches.

Well, this gives me an excuse to use volcarona as talonflame without a band loses a lot of 1 and 2 hit KOs. Bulky volcarona with dance/roost and max def and HP could be really fucking good.

...to the very first time you ever came into contact with Pokemon, the first time you you saw anything related to Pokemon.

For me, it was the original print ad (as far as I know it's the original English North American one, anyway), that I saw on the back of a Disney Adventures kids magazine. Pic is related. Pokemon was just about ready to drop, or just had. I had no idea what it was or what it could be, it was perplexing, but it interested me, The ad was successful. Had little information but just enough to catch my eye, and I looked out for anything related to this weird-sounding Pokemon thing. This lead me to the games, the show, and then the cards, and well the rest is obvious.

What's your story?

I was a kid, I dunno what age exactly, 8-ish. Pokemon had just started (The show) not long before and a bunch of kids were talking about it on the schoolbus and it sounded weird but cool, and I didn't really understand it. But this kid was trying to explain, but told me it was on tv at five on YTV and to just watch it. So I did. I even remember my first episode ever was Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden. I fell instantly in love with it. It sent lasers through my brain and I got chills. Loved it ever since.

KidsWB on saturday mornings is what did it. After the first time I saw it, I was in love with it. I begged my dad to buy me the handbook and, the following Easter, he bought me a teal Gameboy Color, with both Red and Blue versions. I played the fuck out of blue, because it was my favorite color. I chose Squirtle (obv) and wound up beating the whole game using a water-team, because of my little kid crush on Misty.

I did the same thing for a bro in HS that was bad at raising his own Pokemon and wanted to try battling. Gave him a taste of competitive by giving him a team of his favorites with good movesets, IVs, EVs, taught him he ropes and such.

I know he's gotten some of his own Pokemon from there, but I wonder how the originals faired...Did he grow attached to them only to find out that he can't transfer them?... Thinking about talking to him again now that Ruby/Sapphire remakes are coming out, so we can nostalgia over them; but I always suck at picking up old connections.

I had an idea of something but I don't think it necessarily deserves its own thread.

How would you feel if the next (not neccesarily ASOR) Pokemon title had a shoddy battle/pokemon online sort of clone accessible beside the story, kinda not really like how smash has a story mode and a nonstory mode? It could be unlocked after the story or even as you complete the dex, or accessible from the get go.

You could create ideal teams with a team builder. If you create the idealized team you're using competitively in game then that could unlock battle swag, like access to shiny reskins (or even giving you a one time guaranteed shiny in game or something), using approved nicknames online, or more intimidating effects or even like a 1~10% stat boost or something (and then making it still mostly necessary to put in the hard work the competitive scene does).

Also something I'd like is multiple saves or maybe just something like concurrent memories mode that lets you relive the story without destroying your original save (in case you want to give up half way through but still have a finished save on hand). With that latter thing I guess what I'm imagining is like the end of the wind waker where you fight the bosses again only your items are grayed out, only your items are your items, old pokemon, and such...

Lando incarnate has sheer force and makes a good mixed attacker, lando therian the one with intimidate has 145 base attack giving it what might be the second hardest hitting earthquake in the game. It lacks groudon's bulk though. Intimidate just allows you to survive more hits thus increasing the things you can check or counter with it but it's more like gyarados whose intimidate helps it set up. It's a shame it can't learn DD though as it'd be a terrifying Dragon dancer. It can double dance though with rock polish swords dance and edgequake but that shit is hard to pull off.

You should be able to backup the save periodically, I believe in the system settings? Speedrunners at least prefer digital copies so they can make saves before every segment to practice and not risk deleting them with power saves.

Sorry if this is stupid - anyone know anything indepth about the new shiny and breeding mechanics?

Google is useless, duckduckgo moreso. Both want to bring me to ign etc where the 13 year olds are talking out of their asses. Serebii being pretty much ign now. Then they just forget my search terms and return shit for "mechanics" or "sheen (metallicy)" or get confused with VI and IV. Plus, they can't really search images like this. Even so I figured po deserved all the info, speculative and otherwise, compiled in a nice place without bp's dumbassery.

I know friend safaris increase the rates - in one day I got a shiny magneton and a shiny (booboo keys idk it's english name). But I haven't gotten anything since, which is sad because I lost the magneton to it suiciding on a badly placed mon. I feel like soft resets had something to do with it but I don't remember if I was doing them with boobookeys (magneton happened on accident).

The rate seems to be bumped up by like 4 all around, and the charms and masuda method return. I've also heard that pic related can pass shineyness somehow but I don't really think it's true.

I've heard rumours that it's genetic again (so shiny parents bump the chances of shiney kids) but I really doubt that. I've heard rumours about tipping but that seems to almost certainly be wishful thinking.

Some things we know about competitive as opposed to shiny breeding is pic related. The Destiny knot guarantees 5 ivs from the parents; at first it was thought to be only from the holder but now it seems (if I'm understanding it correctly) like it picks the top 5 (though it has a chance of picking the same stat twice). Egg moves can be passed from either parent now too.

I don't know about shiny mechanics but stats and natures I can explain.

Normally 3 iv are chosen at random from between the parents and it can pick either parents iv for the chosen stat. The destiny knot raises this to 5. It does not guarantee you get the best stat but it helps speed up breeding and raises how many stats you can raise to 31. Here's a few examples.

If you bred 2 months. One with 31 in each stat and 1 with 0 in each stat and one had a destiny knot you would get one stat picked at random which would be random, any number from 0 to 31. The other 5 stats would each be pulled off a random parent but separately. So for each of the 5 remaining stats you are guaranteed to get it off ONE of the parents but each stat can be either. So you could get 31 5 times or you could get 5 0s. Or you could get 3 31s and 2 0s. Plus whatever the random stat is. The odds of a perfection pokemon are 1/1024 at this point. Which is still pretty long. However you will likely get offspring better than the 5x0 parent you can replace it with pretty quickly narrowing the odds.

If you bred one with 31 in attack, speed and hp and one with attack, defense and special defense, aside from the random stat, which obviously has a 1/32 chance of being 31 have a 5/6 chance to get a perfect attack because as long as it's a selected stat you will get a 31 because both parents have it. However there's a 1/6 chance it won't get passed on. Additionally you have a good chance to get 31 in any other stat except special but again the odds of a 5 iv monster are long.

If you breed 2 5x31 mons you get a 1/6 chance that the dump stat is the one not passed on at which point it can only choose from 31s.

The knot doesn't improve genetics, you have to select the breeders but it gives you more ability to improve faster.

Okay now natures are passed on by whoever holds an everstone so breeding a perfect monster you want to equip a parent with the everstone so the nature gets passed. Either parent can pass their nature but it will always be the nature of the stone holder. Otherwise it's random.

So let's say I take N's Zorua and breed it against and Absol from my German speaking ntsc Y. Do I get the bump? Do I not?

this is an interesting question considering in gen 5 games, 0x17 is the language/region data that the masuda method looked at, but it wasn't data about the actual geographical location. all that mattered was the langauge of the game the pokemon came from. but now in gen 6 games, there has to be geographical location data stored because of vivillon, right? so the game is either going to follow gen 5 rules and only look at the language, or it's going to use the location stored. that doesn't answer your question at all though, i know.

daycare at the future said it's looking at languages - in that way some people who have both x and y play one in another language for the control over ivs apparently. Vivillion seems to just look at the 3ds's geographical location (at first start?) and it becomes accordingly, but language doesn't really matter to it.

Does anyone have a Trevenant/Phantrum with harvest and 6ivs (or 5ivs with sp.attack not being perfect)? I would generally breed it myself but getting that hidden ability is a total bitch and I don't have time. Bonus points if it's shiny. I have a decent collection of shinies/legends so just ask for something and I might have it or might be able to get it.

also, make it's nickname Finglas if it's not too much trouble.
