  1. Most of old reborn is a shithole let's be honest. I think onyx ward would be the most fun though and probably the safest. Worst you have to deal with is what, Fern and his posse? There's a little roof garden too and it's close to obsidia which is where I figure most would do their shopping. Come to think of it it's the only ward that didn't get utterly wrecked somehow. Outside reborn proper, probably agate or spinel town. Actually the museum seems cool so Spinel town. It's close to the forest too and just seems pleasant even pre-reconstruction For neo reborn, maybe I'd move to obsidia, assuming the slums get fixed. Lots of job opportunity and the park is pretty nice now, plus you can go eat at the SPYCE.

  3. Like what musical genre do you think various Reborn characters would have a strong liking to? hardy - classic rock easily titania - symphonic metal aya - Hmm punk? It's even in her trainer title. Maybe an older style of punk, while Cain is more post punk. fern - rap easily, THE genre for big ego "swag jockeys" Cain - post punk, but pop works too. Corey - grunge, actually listening to Soundgarden's The Day I Tried to Live is what got me thinking about this topic. i'll add more later, but feel free to do whoever!
  4. To this day, after multiple playthroughs, that puzzle still gives me issues from time to time. like I sort of get it now but I always end up screwing it up and it takes me like 10 -15 minutes sometimes if not more getting it right. I hate her gym too.
  5. Came back from seeing Captain Marvel. I really liked it, TBH I enjoyed it more than the last avengers movie and homecoming.

    1. Yahen


      Yahy watched Cap marvel last week and it was coooooooly cool

      Yahy also loved infinity war. Not sure which one i liked more. I ate popcorn on IW but lots of candy on cap marvel

      So i'll go with mah gal Carol

  6. I think reborn and really pokemon in general is one of the few games that can consistently push my buttons. I guess part of it is due to how chance based some of it is, but I feel like I get more frustrated playing these games more than I do say fighting games or soulsbourne or whatever. There's just something about pokemon that kills my chill like no other. Funnily enough this isn't the case playing with actual people, just singleplayer. Like I still enjoy them and sometimes they feel relaxing but other times man I get saltier than the pacific ocean. Like an untimely critical, stuff missing when you don't need to, flinching 3+ times in a row...stuff like that. That's where I just lose all cool.
  7. Yeah it would make it easier. 0 and 10s are terrible lol. But idk alolatales was still outspeeding me when I tried it, then again I was probably leading with slow mons.
  8. Beat adrienne, took 5 tries. Megawile kept ruining things as it would one-shot just about everything and sucker punch dhelmise for a OHKO which sucked. Plus I had nothing SE against it if it was on the fairy tale field. I had to get  adrienne's whimsicott to first set tailwind(sometimes it would just spam dazzling gleam), then have trevenant set a trick room so it could outspeed megawile when it showed up on the field. By using destiny bond trev was able to take out megawile which let silvally and dhelmise clean house with their field buffed  anchor shots and iron heads. The hard part was getting megawile KO'd, the rest of adrienne's team wasn't that bad in comparison.


    You know wiseglasses for finding 10 people is a pretty lame prize.

      It wouldn't really be useful vs Titania because it turns into a Steel move, which here would've won you the game pretty much. Shame about the Lilligant tho, imo it's by far one of the best Grass types you can have.

    3. Monochrome_Complex


      Ahhhh that's why, I didn't know it turned into a steel move.

      I struggled with xem a lot too. Thankfully, I was able to cheese the hell out of him with Destiny Bond Sharpedo to off Granbull and Quick Claw Reuniclus to set up Light Screen before promptly dying, then setting up with Shift Gear Klinklang and my Delphox to sweep. Mega Mawile was sent out before Whimsicott came out to use Tailwind and turn it into a Fairy Tale field, so Delphox took it down with one Flamethrower.

  9. How much were their iVs reduced to? From 31 to 25 isn't what I'd call tanked by any means lol.
  10. It took me like 5 tries to beat victoria at devon. One time I was just like one hit away but lucario just swept the remainder of the team.  Mienshao's knock off and incineroar kind of made using the trick room strat a tad tricky. Eventually i found a way to pull it off reliably. I beat arclight first try, he's much easier in comparison IMO.

  11. Yeah leavanny's speed is what surprised me most. It's not even sunny in that fight but it seemed a lot faster than I remembered it. I guess it has a +speed nature or something. I didn't know leavanny got fell stinger until it used it on me in this fight, since last time I used leavanny was back in unova. But ohh mat block, interesting. I was under the impression it was a gimmick move but it I didn't know it protected both pokemon. That's kind of neat.
  12. OMG I totally forgot about the sucker punch AI exploit. I guess setting up would be key to winning these. Come to think of it that is usually the easiest way to win trainer fights in reborn. And okay I'm not the only one who found leavanny annoying lol. The sticky webs were probably the biggest issue in that fight with shelly/cain. Though moreso in how it made volcarona more vulnerable since everyone else on my team was getting outsped left and right by shelly's team regardless. I remember you said mono dark was strong, i'm guessing that required set up too?
  13. luna iMO was the easiest part of the gauntlet. once you get past her megabsol and weavile, but mega gardy is always worth respecting as a threat. Thing about luna is that megabsol frail as it is hits hard enough and is fast enough to KO a lot of stuff (meaning yeah you can take it out but risk casualties)which makes serra/radomus that much harder since you have less pokemon, unless you're using revives. Then weavile has focus sash so you pretty much have to have something that can tank two hits from it. Several attempts I would do well against luna but then lose to serra/radomus. Not sure how you're finding them a joke TBH.
  14. Lol this fight was nerfed? How was it before? Like sure the levels are lower 70s but these are still EV'd pokemon and you're dealing with megas too. If they don't want to nerf the difficulty anymore, you could always have a split outcome of the events dependent on beating radomus/serra or not but I understand that's a lot of work.
  15. Surely your non-kO'd pokemon get healed, no? I recall that at least happening. I remember not getting healed when I finished umbreon with a Z-move, but I think I did get a pokemon KO'd later attempts and still had my team healed. I figured it was a bug due to z-moves, much like how there was an exp bug with it. But why would having a pokemon get KO'd determined if if your standing ones get healed or not? Like idk, this gauntlet...I get why it's unfair but it's kind of strattling into bad game design. You're fighting 18(counting cain/shelly it's more no?) pokemon in a row with a team of 6, can't even change your team order between rounds, and not getting healed? Even the E4 at its worst let you heal/rearrange your party between matches. If not healing after luna is a thing, at least don't make us repeat cain/shelly again. It's not an impossible fight and I get why it's unfair but i'm not sure if it's really a positive for the game. Like even I only ended up beating it without bag items because alakazam bugged with setting psychic terrain.
  16. I know this is old but as of 18 the rotom information is outdated, you get venusaurite and decididium Z, NOT the yureyu key.
  17. fire is one of the first types you have access to via the starters and is quite powerful in how they can abuse the field system, which is why specific countermeasures have to be taken to keep them from feeling too strong. They're also one of the few types with a weather buff which combined with field bonuses can make them very strong offensively, as Charlotte in reborn so clearly demonstrated in the past. Crawli's rainy field buffs grass and water which are rock's weaknesses, so that field works against them(and crawli does use giga drain). fighting and rock also don't resist bug or ice like fire does so I can see why fire gets weakened on those fields where those two aren't quite as much. Fighting can't even take proper advantage of most fields so there's really little need to stack things against them on that note. EDIT: actually fighting DOES resist bug, but bug also resist fighting so it goes both ways.
  18. Ah well, first time I heard about pokemon was on the news during the porygon incident. The news seemed to make it out to be this dangerous and scary thing that was bad for kids as they said it was alike to dogfighting, had sexually suggestive scenes(of course they show James crossdressing at this point lol) and parents should be careful with it. I was in the 2nd grade and was initially kind of scared of it since the media made it out to be this "dangerous" thing lol. Then sometime later I caught it on TV and found it kind of cool, but didn't want my parents to know I watched it as I thought I would get in trouble. So I would flip the channel whenever they walked in lol. This happened for a while until my dad caught me, they were okay with it and ended up becoming a HUGE fan. I was totally involved in the whole pokemania craze and had cards, toys, clothes, videos....only thing I didn't have the first gen games but gen 2 came out I was all over and got them + a GBC(turquoise colored). I played those games to death and admittedly pokemon proved to be a great outlet for socializing with friends and making new ones. But man drama regarding pokemon cards was serious business back then lol. They were banned for a bit at our school, and many other schools did the same. Gen 3 is where I fell off though, and didn't get back into the series until diamond came out when I was in high school. I had nostalgia for the franchise but thought myself too "mature" for it but some junior student was playing during class, let me play for a bit and I was like, "dude this looks rad," and started looking up the new mons when I got home lol. Admittedly I found some of them horrendous looking(I like them now but man my reaction to drapion initially was something else) but stuff like torterra, dialga, lucario and garchomp got me wanting the game since they looked so cool. I was hooked when I finally played diamond and even now that game holds a special place in my heart. Being able to battle/trade online was mindblowing back then, as before it was link cable or bust lol. Since gen 4 I've stayed, and pokemon is easily my favorite Nintendo franchise and one of those series where I can always find enjoyment to be had. As for my favorite part? I guess I like how customizable the gameplay is in regards to how difficult you can make it and how to build your team, the surprising amount of depth, the worldbuilding and most of all the pokemon themselves, all of whom play an integral part in fleshing out the world. Plus it's great how there's literally a pokemon for everyone out there, like it's seemingly impossible to found someone who doesn't fancy a single pokemon design. Such is the variation and genius behind them that this can occur. I think this is something pokemon does better than other "mon" games, like in yokai watch and dragon quest too many designs are just overly goofy and offputting. Digimon is better but also suffers from a lot of over design too. But with pokemon there's a nice balance of cool, cute, awesome, and flat out weird. It's great.
  19. Guys be careful of going on twitter right now, there's currently a mass shooting video flying around(possibly the worst in recent new zealand history) and it's freakin awful.  Screw these white supremacists terrorists and sites like 8chan that entertain and promote them.

      holy shit... humanity has lowered itself once more

    3. Chimpnology


      video has been removed from pretty much everywhere unless youre really trying to find it, probably. so its safe to come out now.


      my condolences to all people and families that have been caught up in this. this is inexcusable and disgusting.

    4. JoStarNight


      My condolences to everyone affected by this heinous and despicable act. 

  20. Okay so I fought ciel. And...I won. like really easily. In fact it was probably the easiest  gym battle since flobot. 


    I taught trevenant trick room, and grinded up an abamasnow I caught a while back, and WOW, abamasnow is a monster in trick room. 


    For togekiss I had roserade use two venoshocks which KO'd it, as she was able to take one air slash, if barely.


    Oricorio was next, and this next move was crucial. Trevenant barely survived an air slash to pull of trick room, and then sacrificed herself via destiny bond to take down ori. Hard part over with.


    Abamasnow takes center stage now and steals the show. Mine had like 2 iVs in special attack and a -spd + special defense nature so I EV'd it to ensure blizzard actually kills. minior, gliscor, noivern all fall like dominoes and megataria barely survives, no doubt due to the poor IVs. The nature actually ends up being a good thing as abamasnow survives with 3 HP and finishes her with ice shard. 


    You'd expect the flying leader to be the hardest of the circus trio, but she ironically was  the easiest. 

    1. A̸͖̬͎̖̯̼̫͍ͣ̾ͧ͆͋͘͟ͅžͫ͗̈̅͗ͯ


      you didn't just throw lilligant at her and insta win?


  21. Sky drop STILL isn't fixed?

  22. So like I was having a bit of a hard time with fern/blake, and after 3 attempts I went back and switched shiftry for leavanny, whom I lead with. It made a big difference as I was able to finally beat them, and funnily enough solaris/orderly took only one attempt and felt much easier. Julia put in a lot of work this time.


    But alas....it's time for ciel. RIP.

  23. Taka's chatot can go to hell. He solo'd nearly the entire team. I could deal with everyone else(even minior loses to meganium 1 on 1) but chatot is a nightmare. Took like 5 tries to beat taka. I did find a neat trick for his komala, which is to use trick or treat and then use shadow sneak. His only non-normal damaging move is sucker punch which loses due to priority. 


    I've also gotten sivally(grass). Let me tell you, having flamethrower  alone helps immensely against steel types who have otherwise been troublesome entire game. 

  24. Ugh screw this turtwig puzzle. I'll just try to make do without him.

      I just don't have the patience for it right now. Maybe if titania gives me too hard a time I will.

    3. Neco


      If you take a look in your graphics folder, you can see a solved puzzle under pictures --> Puzzles. You could argue that this is somewhat cheating, but seeing the completed picture helps immensely (unless you're already doing that).

    4. Monochrome_Complex


      I haven't looked at the picture since I wanted to try and figure it out legit but I'm too impatient right now haha. I'll just try again later.

  25. Well terra gave more trouble than expected, Garchomp would basically solo the entire team. His flamethrower hit really hard, felt like I had to have rain up when he came out otherwise he'd 1-2 shot everything. I thought setting grass field would help with him(it did help with quagsire/palossand) but it had the opposite effect as it just buffed flamethrower.  I ended up teaching rain dance to roserade in place of venoshock for this fight which helped. I ended up taking garchomp down by having roserade use toxic and using protect/fake out/switching to ludicolo to stall the poison out.  The rest of her team was relatively easy, but garchomp was ridiculous. It took about 5 attempts total.
