  1. Has anyone else on here played Fossil Fighters?  Have you played the ones that aren't Frontier?  I loved the first two, and am just wondering if any Pokefans on here have played it and maybe I can meet someone who liked them as much as I did.

  2. I just realized/learned/found out that Golurk can learn Fly.  I don't think I can continue trying to understand things today.

      It combines the Jewish golem with classic anime mecha tropes, the latter of which is where it pulls its ability to Fly from. I'm fairly certain that it's spent around a quarter of its anime screentime in the air, actually.






      STAB Earthquake isn't the only thing that earned its fans, it turns out~

      I love both of you.


      @doombotmecha I knew this about Zangoose.  Maybe because Zangoose already gets STAB Slash they didn't think there was any point in allowing it to learn cut?  I think Gamefreak has forgotten Zangoose exists.  The moves it learns in Sun and Moon are barely different from what it learned back in Gen 4.


      @Autumn Zephyr Thank you for your large amount of knowledge about one of my favorite Gen 5 pokemon.  Especially the anime knowledge.  Isn't STAB Earthquake is usually a given for any Ground Type?  I would hope it's known for more than just STAB Earthquake.

      I was being silly there 😅. It's also got the dangerous combination of No Guard and DynamicPunch, if you really want to be serious about it. Design-wise, I've personally been interested in its seal for a long time, as well. On a less serious note, it was designed by the same person who bestowed vanilluxe unto the world, so how's that for sharp juxtaposition? 

  3. Do you have any escape ropes on you or Dig? (Or maybe those just put you back out the top sorry.) Do you have any backup saves from before you entered the mountain? Saving Amber is optional BTW I believe. I think you might get something from saving her, or the story might be different if you don't (like Amber won't invite you to her room after you beat her Gym Battle), but I believe that someone somewhere says that things with Amber will work out regardless of whether you try to save her or not. Also at the top of the mountain in the room with the big door and the PC and Heal things there are 3 different emotion crystals if I recall correctly. I'm trying to help you out here @hamfam000 I really am, but the one thing that I cannot do is edit a save file. So if that's what you're looking for, then I hope you get help from someone you can.
  4. I don't know how I'm only your 24th follower on here but oh well.  Glad to join the misfits on this sinking, on fire, and exploding ship.

      I'm reasonably sure there's a big conspiracy against me. Either that or most people don't use the follower function?

      Hope you enjoy yourself and will find plenty more adjectives to add to this awful ship as time goes on 

  5. Dude how did you do it so perfectly? I love this.
  6. You are right with how fast EV rooms are now. I value the power of Exp. All more, however, because it allows me to have high enough level pokemon at the time I need them. Early on you don't get that much out of EVs anyway. Sure it means if I want to have mainstays I can't use them until later because I need EV rooms, but this game doesn't require you to have EV trained pokemon early anyway (unless you are playing Hard difficulty). You're free to do you though. I think they're both top priority, though.
  7. Yeah welcome to the forums, BTW I'd recommend you get the Exp. All before you get any EV rooms, though tbh, but that's just me.
  8. Rule 34 content. Obviously. Jokes aside, I love the story, the characters, the music, the atmosphere, the overall feel of the game. Somewhere at the beginning of the game someone said the word "Fuck" and I immediately knew this game was going to be interesting...and indeed it was. Honestly the fact that it's a Pokemon game doesn't mean all that much to me, surprisingly. I remember reading somewhere recently that Jan sorta wishes he didn't do gyms, and I really resonated with that. This game could easily flourish with any decent game format, and probably be better off without the gyms sidetracking the main plot half the time like a damn filler episode. I don't love this game because it's a Pokemon game, but rather because it has created unique memorable experiences for me, and it simply uses the Pokemon format to do so. If I had to pick one thing, I'd probably have to say the music. If the music wasn't as good as it is, I'd probably hate this game for its level of seemingly bullshit difficulty at times. Don't get me wrong, I love the challenge, and it has made the tough victories all the more satisfying, but if the music wasn't as good as it is, I probably would grow to hate every tough fight. This is simply because the atmosphere would be dreadfully painful (in a bad way) the whole time, and I'd get to a point where I'd just say, "Fuck it I'm done." I'd stop playing a game clearly worth my time, all because the atmosphere was too obnoxiously plain/forgettable and it made replaying hard fights 20+ times become too taxing. So yeah, TLDR: I love the music in this game. 10/10 would listen to again.
  9. Oh yeah right now I remember that fucking Unburden LOL Yeah, I can't remember how exactly I dealt with that. By Narcissa I had almost all if not all the EV rooms and had like 15-20 different pokemon sitting at Lv. 35. I'm looking at my PC box right now. I do remember considering training up the Pancham you get from trading Aipom to that girl in Sheridan. It conveniently had Scrappy, but I ended up not needing to do that, as I see it still sits at Lv. 1 in my PC. (It may have Scrappy, but its IVs and nature suck balls.) I might have started out with my bulky AF Carbink and just used Drifblim to set up Stealth Rocks and then followed up by just spamming Smack Downs till the thing died My Greninja with Shadow Sneak that might've helped My Luxray may have simply tanked a hit from Drifblim and 1 shotted it in return I have 3 Mightyena, all with Moxie, so I think I might have swept a good amount of her team with my 252 Atk, 252 Speed Mightyena That's about all I can guess. I do remember this fight being a bit frustrating, but I can't remember it all that well so it must've paled in comparison to my other experiences in this game.
  10. Drifblim outsped your Lycanroc? What?
  11. If you see this then thanks for looking at my profile and scrolling this far.  Check out my cover photo.

      Holy crap!  I didn't expect someone to actually read my status update!  Especially not so soon.  How did you happen to read this?

      Oops...LOL oh boy do I feel dumb. 😅

  12. I'm definitely not going to miss going into the Speed room to get my EVs and suddenly realize my pokemon fainted because I wasn't paying attention to the fact I was fighting a Voltorb and aftermath damage and such. I eventually just gave up and never used contact moves on Voltorb in that room ever again.
  13. "Back then" you say? @Vince&Sylveon How far back do you mean?
  14. The one and only downside I see is now you can only get EVs in sets of 12...so like if I want specifically 100 EVs in a stat, then I have to get it to 96, switch the pokemon out to a different one to prevent it from going over 100, and go out into the wild to find pokemon that will give me 4 more EVs in that stat.
  15. Okay so I just went to go do some EV training in the lab for the first time after updating to V12...and HOLY JESUS THERE AREN'T ANY GRASS PATCHES...there is a trainer though so I guess I fight her for them now? I proceed to fight her and LOL 6 Lv. 1 Meltans. I look online to see how many EVs they would give and...they don't. Okay, so I look at my pokemon and see how many EVs I get from that encounter and HOLY FUCKING SHIT 72 Atk EVs from 6 Meltans!!!??? I LOVE IT! Thank you so much Jan! Thank you so much dev team! I don't know who actually came up with that idea but THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can't wait to not have to spend hours to max EVs on my pokemon anymore!
