  1. And as for "why is it not OP like other crests", Pokemon that are already strong are more likely to get a crest that changes their game style or is more of a sidegrade than an upgrade compared to something that desperately needs something as massively powerful as something like Ledian Crest's effect.
  2. Big old wall of text regarding game difficulty opinions. These are somewhat outdated and based on Normal rather than Intense for the most part.
  3. I'm pretty sure you can actually answer the question "Is a pseudo-legendary available yet" by "Can it learn Dragon Dance", because I'm pretty sure every one that can is not, and every one that can't, is, outside of mystery egg Larvitar. (Which I get, considering how it's one of the most busted setup moves on top of powerful Pokemon.) Dratini, (non-egg) Larvitar, Bagon, and Jangmo-o are all unobtainable currently unless I missed something. (which I may have, I thought Vulpix was still unavailable but it seems to not be in V12)
  4. Yeah, I'm not implying people are harassing him to add it, more that people seemed to fixate on it, and/or some of them may not have seen his statement. You had worded your post (mostly the "take into consideration") part in a way that came off to me like he has to be open to changing his mind or listening to repeat suggestions, which is why I had gotten somewhat aggressive in tone. As for the word "friendzone", I almost always see it used in that context (in general, not specifically here) so I'm going to react negatively to it, though I don't want to argue about it further on the forums and ignite a flame war. I don't have enough knowledge personally to speak on the topic anyway.
  5. The issue is that he has. He said no, never. It gets repetitive, at least in that instance. Asking for features is fine if it's done politely, but asking for something already said that will never, ever be in the game is going to get on the devs' nerves.
  6. The repeated use of the term "friendzone" is gross and implies the characters are entitled to be your romantic partner (likely because they are female, though I won't put words in other people's mouths to be inflammatory). Especially because some of these characters likely don't have attraction to men (though I won't erase the possiblity of them being bi/pan.) Also, asexual/aromantic people (not me, I just use the general term "queer" to refer to myself as I don't particularly identify with any label of sexuality, but I am friends with people who are) play games too. Waifu culture is absolutely exhausting when so many games already pander to people thirsty for anime girls and make it sound weird if you're not. Seeing a game that doesn't is refreshing. (And, many of these characters are barely 18 if they are 18 or over. Also kinda skeevy.)
  7. Team I played through much of V12 with. I need to get around to properly EV training them and fixing their natures as EV training is so much easier in this version and I didn't see it necessary so far on Normal, but now I don't have much of an excuse! The only shiny one in my main team is Torterra, but it also was shiny without having to reset at all! (Serperior is the starter, Torterra was from the event) Pokemon I have used, intend to use, or are full-on rotation members (notably Mismagius, Typhlosion, Lanturn, to a lesser degree A. Muk, Beheeyem, and Lycanroc). Gligar I might actually train to be an Eviolite Gligar now that it's obtainable in V12.
  8. I'm not sure if just Meditite can do it unless you rare candy it to level 37 to evolve it, but it's also an incredibly hard hitting fighting type that will have High Jump Kick by level 35 as well. Medicham absolutely would be able to if you do have 2 spare rare candies, even through enhanced cosmic power. I'm not familiar enough with her V12 team otherwise to help if her lead Pokemon have moves that would threaten Steel or Rock types, but Sudowoodo from the shadow Bonsly can also be useful, especially if it still comes with Shift Gear. (Multipulse is like a weaker Judgement in how it functions, AFAIK, so it's likely that Multipulse is Water to be S.E against Rock and neutral to Steel.)
  9. Jan has already said that "relationship" doesn't have to mean "romance". I can imagine characters maybe getting little epilogue bits based on their reationship points, seeing an extra custcene or small gameplay bonuses postgame. I don't think anyone should try to change his mind. It's his game and vision, and enough games, mainstream or otherwise push romance on the player as it is. People insisting on it will just become exhausting for him. I think something more like little "where are they now" bits for other characters that vary based on relationship points are more likely, to me, compared to platonic personal endings based on them, as well.
  10. I'm interested in an answer to this too. Neo Gearen Laboratory lacks a rematchable trainer as far as I can tell, and sidequest trainers will eventually run out. I'm fine with the high prices of new items because of the absurd amount of money trainers hand out at this point in the game, but I don't know if there's a way to make up for that outside of leveling a Persian to 85 and slowly payday farming or selling items obtained with Pickup. (if any of them have noticeable values, I'm not actually sure what Rejuvenation's pickup chart is)
  11. I think they meant more in the sense of a trainer who doesn't speak in general, though it could be referring to the player character. I can imagine if Pokemon can understand human language, that something like sign language or even just general gestures/instinct could command them as well, though it might take more effort to train them. This is all "headcanon", though, and pardon if this counts as answering questions for the devs themselves, though this feels more like a general hypothetical inquiry about Pokemon.
  12. Not yet. It will in version 13 (confirmed in the Q&A thread), but keep in mind that will only be for the late part of the game. Both the Dawn and Dusk stones can be found in Wispy Ruins as soon as you can reach them. This thread will help with the locations of items, but be wary of spoilers. Edit: To answer your edit, Lycanroc may fall off once other good fast offensive Pokemon are available, but Dusk Form should easily be viable until the end of the current version and Midday should too. I'm unfamiliar with the use of Trevenant or its natural learnset, but Dusknoir does have some late-game potential in the form of unique Crest items that tend to improve weaker pokemon in ways similar to a lighter version of a Mega. I can't recommend one or the other due to lack of experience.
  13. The Shadow Chinchou is a decent choice. Unless its moves changed, it has two very useful illegal moves and Lanturn is a very solid pokemon already. Try to use edits on your posts instead of repeatedly posting in the same thread three times in a row, though.
  14. Is this planned to be true of (official, sicne I think Gym Leader moves were stated before to be planned for postgame) TMs, or will a couple of the really powerful ones be V16/Postgame? If this isn't considered confidential, as it'd pretty implicitly state certain TMs will be in V16 like Earthquake, Ice Beam, Swords Dance, and Calm Mind unless you pull one of those surprise moves like Flora/Florin giving out Energy Ball, Erick rewarding Volt Switch, or Narcissa rewarding Shadow Ball. (Unless V16 is already planned to be a standalone postgame version as opposed to Reborn E19, I don't remember the version roadmap) Also, thank you for answering my questions too, happy to see that more crests are planned!
  15. I'd consider having not-crap S. Atk (though Atk is better early game, Poison Sweep is a dream move for low level Nidos) and Speed IVs good enough, though that nature will hamper you for a while, as I think you will have at least 9 badges if not more (I don't know when they become accessible) before you can access a nature changer. If you don't mind waiting till then, then I'd keep it, though I was never much of a stickler for IVs outside of if all the useful ones for that Pokemon are in the single digits.
