  1. Awwww yes, I can put my Reborn memes in here! So I kinda made some for @DerogatoryTrainer's Reborn run but now I can put them here, enjoy me trashing (or praising) some Reborn characters must protecc taka (spoilers for reshiram route) fern training a kricketune in reborn I have made other memes - about Reborn characters I dislike - but I don't want to get hated in case I dislike someone's fave, so maybe I'll post them at another point xD
  2. The Titania/Amaria story hit very, very close to home for me as I have also struggled with severe depression. I took the Reshiram Route for my first playthrough, and sympathised with Amaria a little re: drowning the player because of her situation. The symbols of her love are literally given to an intruder who she can't remember, Titania is nowhere to be seen and I took her action as a sort of... unstable, panicked act of desperation which she later apologises for. I have less sympathy for her when it comes to the fact that she is consciously and knowingly keeping Titania in a relationship which she knows damages her, and on this I agree with the OP and other posters here. Her mental health provides an explanation for her actions, but not an excuse - Amaria puts Titania into this situation because she clings to this one person for a source of stability despite there being others like Julia who she could help connect with. I know full well that this is far easier said than done, but it seems as if the thought of trying this has not even been considered by Amaria at this point of the story.
  3. Honestly, that wouldn't surprise me. The knight version of her in Titania's Gym called "Rylin" battled with an Alolan Ninetales that looks like it came from Ame. It makes sense that she'd battle using Randomus' Gardevoir too, because she seems to like stealing other peoples' Pokemon like the cheapskate she is If this is on the subject of what Pokemon Lin has, I also have a theory about what another member of her team could be in E19. Let's suppose that she is fighting with a Gardevoir, Hydreigon and Ninetales-A. She seriously needs at least one Steel-type counter and I think I know what she could pick. @Filthy Casual mentioned on Discord that the New World Field boosts a lot of Hydeigon's STABs and possible moveset options (Flash Cannon, Draco Meteor, Dark Pulse, Black Hole Eclipse), making it quite likely that the Lin fight would be on this field. But that field *also* adds a massive boost to a different Ability and move: In addition, Reborn does use Pokedex data to drive bits of the story (eg: G. Gardevoir creating the black hole) and Victini's Pokedex has some very interesting titbits which may (?) possibly (??) help to explain how that Hydreigon tanked that Fairy attack from Ame's Ninetales-A There are a lot of other possible explanations for Lin's powers of c - and the field also boosts Shadow Shield and lunar-themed moves so we could easily get a Lunala instead. But if we do fight Lin's Victini in E19, I can be happy about calling it! I'm not saying this is proof or anything though, obviously it's just a theory a game theory
  4. I... I have no words, I saw this on Discord and still have no words
  5. Oh hey, an emoji user too! and welcome i lurk around here a lot too so it's nice to see i'm not alone. I hope you enjoy your time in the forums!
  6. In my run, an Amnesia/Acid Spray Gulpin whittled down most of her team. Kricketune can get Technician + Fury Cutter which helps too
  7. Going with what other people have said, in my view it's better to replace the Noibat with something else because it takes so long to evolve and its moves and stats aren't that great. You also don't need Munna if you have Meowstic - speaking of which, I would recommend seeing if you can get a different Ability for it. The male ones can get Prankster and the female ones can get Competitive, which should be much more helpful than Keen Eye. I would also change Primarina's Ability b/c at the minute Liquid Voice makes Disarming Voice a Water type move, and you already have Sparkling Aria. Torrent should mean that you still have that Fairy type coverage. Some useful Pokemon that you can pick up at this point include: - Lillipup which can be evolved into Herdier, and if you delay the evolution by 2 levels the thing can learn Crunch. The Lillipup comes with one of the elemental fangs so you can get some additional coverage, and learns Work Up so you can set up. It evolves into Stoutland at Level 32, and has 85/90/90 bulk when it does, which isn't bad at all in that point in the game. The Ghost immunity/Crunch can help with Shade too - Electrike can be found if you battle the Mightyena pair in an alleyway in Obsidia. It evolves into Manectric at Level 26, and is pretty powerful and speedy for that level. You can teach it Charge Beam from Julia's Gym which'll hit v hard from Base 105 SpA, and it also comes with one of the Elemental Fangs. Corey and Shelly use some Flying and Water Pokemon and Taka has the Chatot from hell, so it could prove pretty useful there But honestly, any team that can get you through the Gyms and bosses is good enough for a casual playthough. If you want to use the Ariados and Munna for example, and you can make it work, then go for it!
  8. Thank you xx And @Auburn_Ember Roserade is best Pokemon, I love its Shiny too! Meanwhile @Wolfox grass-themed songs are best songs haha Thanks for the information as well @Candy
  9. Okay so I've just been introduced to this from Uberle and I love it Here's my likeability rankings for the Gym Leaders! Titania got saved from the bottom tier only b/c I find her character fascinating (this may change if I wipe to anyone in my nuzlocke btw)
  10. I'd recommend having the line as more of a support Pokemon while you wait for more Fairy-type moves, especially as the line isn't the best at attacking and moves like the screens and T-Wave can be really helpful in a game like this. My Igglybuff also came with Perish Song on its intial learnset, which could be really helpful against bosses and Pokemon that nothing else can cut through. The little balloon Pokemon deserves a chance to shine
  11. Hey everyone! My name's Iola and I'm a uni student in the UK who likes Pokemon and hanging out in forums. I also like visual novels, murder mystery video games and philosophy books ~ I was first introduced to Pokemon when I was about eleven, when I received Pokemon Diamond for the DS. Back then I wiped a lot b/c I always assumed that trying to beat Psychic types with an Infernape was an amazing idea. At the moment I don't wipe (so much) and I really like nuzlocking Pokemon games (this is basically Pokemon where you can only catch the first encounter in an area, and if a Pokemon faints it's considered dead and must be permaboxed or released). I also love fangames, and really enjoy Pokemon Reborn's storyline and intriguing characters. My favourite characters are Florinia, Cain and Taka, as they're all multilayered and fundamentally decent people who are still conflicted and very very human. I like drawing, and want to draw some Pokemon Reborn fanart at some point at some point to show my appreciation for the game. Pokemon in general has been a great escape for me throughout the years, and it's hard for me to find a game or Pokemon that I actively dislike. Even ones like Castform and Unown are ones that I'd like to own and give lots of hugs to. My favourite Pokemon is probably Roserade (I love Grass types in general haha), and my least favourite is the walking wet fart known as Stunfisk. I heard about Pokemon Reborn from the Nuzlocke Forums which are here https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/nuzlocke_forum/, and I'd recommend their forum/discord if you're interested in finding out more about nuzlocking or if you just want to hang out. A lot of people there document their nuzlocke runs there and/or make stories and comics out of them, which brings me to what I would like to do quite soon. I am trying to nuzlocke Reborn at the moment (which is really hard, but very rewarding), but I also want to make a story out of it where the protagonist (and Pokemon) are their own characters who can talk and react to the mind-blowing events that they get thrown into. So if anyone wants to look into something like that, or ask me about that, feel free to ask me about it and stay tuned! Also um this forum looks really cool and busy, so it'd be nice for me to get to know some people here. I'm a bit timid and don't know my way around here yet but I'll do my best to say hi! Also happy pride month everyone
