  • Important Idea: Internally Inflicting Indignity


    Marcello

    So as you may have seen from the previous Dev blog post, we've begun internally testing the E19 story just to make sure it's all up to standard before moving on fully with the mammoth that is postgame.

     

    As such I have been playing through the story and testing it out, providing my thoughts and critiques along the way.

     

    As we have known for the last... 4? 5? Episodes of Reborn, there is a PULSE Mr. Mime somewhere in Labradorra. So I think it's safe to say there's no spoiler in revealing this is something that is going to be fought.

    And so we figured, just to give you a taste of what is to come when we eventually do release the episode, we'll share the commentary I gave on that particular fight:

     

    ' So here's my thoughts on the fight so far:

    I knew the gimmick for this fight a long time in advance.

    PULSE Mime is like the one aspect of E19 I know more about than anything else, I nominally helped with the design, I discussed the moveset and such with Ame, and I wrote the AI for it

    And with all this foreknowledge

    And with a team that (admittedly accidentally) has the tools to deal with it

    I

    Can do

    fuck all

    against this thing '

     

    That's all for today, I HoPE yOU aLl ArE SUfFerrINg LeSS tHan mE!

    So, uh, Mr. Mime Mirror Match is decidedly not go? Well, that's a bit of a shame. Hopefully this clown doesn't invoke any more phobia than the original does!

    let me guess, it has an ability that either automatically heals itself in battle, automatically puts up screens, or is completely immune to Perish Song/Toxic/other cheese strats

    I'm so excited to suffer again, and I'm expecting it to bring ALL the screens.

    My body is ready.

    Well, that's half the reason we play this game, isn't it? Seemingly-impossible challenges that we take the time and effort to figure out - and beat the shit out of anyways, whether through tactics or just cheesing it with stat boosts and weather (or both). I don't think the Reborn team has created any unique abilities or moves in the game, though - there's already plenty to work with.

     

    Though considering some of the stuff I have seen and what Mr. Mime is supposed to be doing, I'm expecting that the screens on the Mr Mime will be there at the start of the battle... and renew themselves every turn or something. Or that Mr Mime has a team consisting of backup Mr Mimes or such. If this is one of the last PULSES, there's no way it won't be hard... we have every non legendary potentially at our disposal, now.

    wait wait wait... I'm keen to guess. Filter being a good ability means his whopping three weaknesses would be targetted. Simple enough. Attack with a solid physical move since his defense is trash. But being the poke is built around defense and stall make it so he casts a barrier or something on transform.  Have the game stall the player out. Have someone like Sirius that can tank hits until you are down to the last mon to make it so if it has pressure it force stalls you to struggle. Probably immune to destiny bond because Reborn. 

     

    Orrrrr two healing moves and a healing item plus 1 protection move and one offensive move... probably fairy along with pressure in a field that totally benefits it alone to force you to kill all offensive options. Since pressure isn't on any non-legendary... I think it would mean that you would die out long before mime.

     

    Option 3... lol get rekt. level 100 mime in a fairy field. 2x speed and 4x SpA.

    Will we have something like Ultra Burst for AI?

    Let's just hope we'll get to use the other PULSEs for ourselves before that one... right?

    Focus sash Rattata? If it can slay both God and god-slayer, surely it can slay this.

    A Pokemon with Infiltrator maybe?

    I'm thinking something with Misty Field and Wish and an insane amount of defense. So you either have an insanely strong steel move to knock it out before it sets up, or it's useless. And the steel-ghost weakness can be dealt with by Filter, which could leave it affected by weather and other hazards...
