  1. ~ Shrouded In Mystery ~ Hey everyone! It's good to be back giving you all an update on things! I couldn't really organize our inner workings into a single theme, so you'll just have to bear with a smattering of... well, things. Due to the chaotic nature of everyone's lives at the moment, we've all been working on different stuff at different times. This means there aren't really clear sections on what I'll be talking about, so I hope you like... uh... words. Let's get started. - A very early WIP concept Ruby has been working on - For me, life has been pretty crazy lately. I'm about to sit my final exams for medical school, so my life has consisted of essentially living in the hospital, then working when I'm not there. The most exciting part is that the end is in sight... but I'm just not quite there yet. This has meant that I haven't had ample time to stick to one task (like I usually do) i.e. main story, longer side quests, and questlines, etc. Instead, I've been working on a lot of 'stuff' throughout the month. This includes shorter side quests, scripting, and graphical updates, as well as some general tinkering. It's all useful stuff that I've more or less been procrastinating, really. On the bright side, I have had some pretty great output on the writing side of things, but I'll leave that for another update. Now, enough of me moaning. I've stolen the spotlight ranting about myself long enough, so I'll show off some of Posty and Crim's work too. Posty's been busy working on many of the new areas that we will explore outside of the city in E6. He's beginning to deeply expand his role, and I'm pretty proud of the guy. Lately, he's started branching out into side quest building as well. This has sped things up more than you can imagine. We're working at slightly different points of the game, but it means that the gaps are being filled in far more quickly. Speaking of side quests, I just wanted to mention that there was a wee update to the quest log look. It might stand to change some more, but I thought I'd keep you all in the loop. Finally, I'd like to touch on an area Crim has spent a huge amount of time working on, and it definitely paid. It's definitely the highlight of this monthly update, which again makes me super grateful to have her around. The colors and atmosphere in this area are pretty great, and I can't wait for you to see it in E6. Yeah, it's pretty good fun bringing this area together. What's it meant to be used for? Well... we'll leave that in mystery just for the time being. Once again, super proud of Crim's work. Well, that's it for this month's update. Once again, I apologize for the disjointed nature of our inner workings. It's just been a chaotic time outside of development. We're hanging in there, and I'm glad you're hanging in with us. Till next time, Caz

  3. I shared it over in the Discord, but I completely forgot to share it here. When V13 released I was very impressed at the new Aevium forms and being new to spriting I wanted to try and make my own. I was more insecure about my work then, but I feel confident to share it now! Introducing my own Aevium Pokemon, meet the Fire/Grass type Falinks! Stranded on Terajuma Island, this group of Falinks had to adapt to its new environment over time. From scavenging in the jungle to scaling the mountain, the Falinks had to make the most out of what was available as their equipment began to degrade over time. Exchanging one of their shields for a spear to attack from afar and constructing new shields to defend up close, they have adopted a new fighting style for a more offensive formation. Though they've grown to rely more on their instincts than instruction, the Falinks will continue to follow their leader through thick and thin no matter the challenge that bars their path!

  7. I would compare Taka with someone involved in some sort of cult: is the cult doing bad things? Yes. Is the person whose entire family is in the cult doing, by proxy, those bad things? Yes. But, to what point can you blame them if that cult is the only thing he knows? It's like individually blaming each grunt who wouldn't share the same degree of control that Sirius and Solaris had over Team Meteor's decisions.

  8. Unfortunately, I had to reduce the sizes of the drawings quite a bit so that they all fit into one post. Saki (Rejuv) and Julia (Reborn) drawn on behalf of the user @GreatNinja; Saki - once with her short hair and once with the long hair, from the latest version, but I left her hoodie there. Then I draw florin. I really hope that more stuff will come to Florin and Flora, I like them both very much :)

  9. ~ Excerpts from Patreon ~ ~ Urban Smoke and Nature's Bliss ~ Hey everyone, long time no see. It's that time of the month again where I jumble together a number of items we've worked on, and try to find a theme that links everything together. It's certainly a reach to call that process a success this month, but it's the thought that counts. Today, I'll briefly discuss our inner workings in a number of locations, including Cellia East and some... well, areas we've decided to leave unnamed. - A snippet of one of Ruby's masterpieces that will appear in-game. - To begin with, let's take a step back to see how the greenery has been growing: Old Content #################### | Map Updates (80%) #################### | Script Updates (55%) #################### | Misc (65%) -------------------------------------------------- #################### | Total (67%) New Content: #################### | Story (65%) #################### | Mapping (90%) #################### | Scripting (55%) #################### | Sidequests (75%) -------------------------------------------------- #################### | Total (71%) Yup, it's getting there. Bear in mind that these parameters are educated guesses more than anything. Anyway, now onto the actual update. Big Smoke and Blinding Lights Work continues on the bright lights of Cellia East. Only now, the end is actually within sight. Frankly, it's very comforting to actually see that nightlife coming together exactly as intended. It's been a long time coming, but it's definitely getting there. Thanks for hanging in there, you must be... The last few bits and pieces in Cellia East includes completing and tidying up some sidequests, and finishing the eventing processes within the Prison. These are all areas that have been previously revealed. After that, we can finally say with certainty that we're proud of the overall package that we call "Cellia", which is an exciting prospect. There's also a lot of balancing that still needs to go in within this area, including battles, item placement, quest rewards etc. It's the largest city area that has been created for the game thus far, so there's a lot of tweaks that need to be done for us to avoid things going awry at launch. A final reason as to why Cellia East has taken so long is one that I have iterated many times before. This district is my first real attempt to nail the world outside of the main story. Not just NPC's, but characters within sidequests, and the stories they have to tell. I want to make sure that every story is interesting within itself. This is something that I'm dedicated to, in order to reduce filler, and increase the amount of interesting and thought-provoking plotlines to explore. A Breath of Fresh Air Some of you may recall that we actually ventured outside of the dark and catastrophic atmospheres of Cellia and the Dreamscape in a past update. Well, we figured that it's been long enough since we broadened our horizons, and decided to share that with you. Obviously, it's clear that we've kept everything outside of Cellia and the Dreamscape pretty carefully under wraps, and we'll continue to do the same... at least for a little longer. But... there's definitely room here for at least a couple of screenshots. Yeah... your eyes aren't deceiving you. There's actually a world outside of the city! Firstly, you'll immediately note that the general aesthetic of this area is pretty unique, especially compared to past areas. This is because the talents of Crim, both from a graphical and mapping perspective (with help from everyone's favorite post-man, Posty), have allowed this entire section of the game become a unique area with its own personal feeling. I'm really proud of the work they've done on this, and following, areas. I can't beat around the bush - there's still lots to do. From the main story, to side quests, to general world-building... it's a lot. However, I feel like I can express some genuine happiness in saying that the end is actually within sight. There is an endpoint, and I feel as though we are no longer lost within a swamp of dev tasks. I find that pretty exciting, and I hope you do too. That'll be all for now, folks. Cheers for sticking with me! Till next time, Caz

  11. INTRO: BEGINNING AND END Hi, name's Hank, I'm not technically new to the reborn forums but my last post on my old account which I can't remember anything about was somewhere around 7 years ago, so yeah... Anyways I had no intention of posting this, but my friends heavily insisted. Now, I'm no beginner to reborn I've played since Ralts was where Espurr is. I've done casual playthroughs, serious breeding meta playthroughs, monotype challenges, nuzlockes and more. Thing was though while my friends went through chapter 17 and chapter 18 I never did. Time passed, and Pokémon Reborn was now but a fleeting joyful memory. Then one day when playing D&D with my friends one of them said, "hey did you know Chapter 19 will be Reborn's last chapter?", and the metaphorical dam broke. I didn't say anything at first, but I was already downloading the latest chapter. I thought I'll just load up my old save file, and catch up from there... No... no, no, no. When was the last time you even played Reborn Hank? Do you even remember? No start again, remind yourself. On August 30th, 2021 I loaded up Reborn and set one rule for myself. I was going to catch every single Pokémon and they had to be shiny. Ultimately my final run time would be 603 Hours and 47 Minutes not counting resets when breeding or encounters. *I'm going to apologies because I don't have many screenshots during the run as I never intended to post this on the forums. I hope the screenshots of the Shiny Mons relevant to the segment will suffice. CHAPTER 1: I DIDN'T PLAN AT ALL My starter was Froakie. I like Froakie, and Greninja is a very strong Pokémon. So I began resetting; 50 resets, 100 resets, 150 resets... what were the Shiny Rates for Pokémon Reborn again? 1/100. Guess I'm unlucky. 200 resets, gosh already off to a rough start, and on top of that I want a Protean Froakie. Still, I knew this was going to be a long haul... 238 resets, It's SHINY! Checking it's ability... Protean and a Jolly nature; honestly well worth the delayed arrival. Thrilled with such a great starting Pokémon I eagerly ran off to battle Cain... where he scored two crits in a row at the start of the battle and wiped the floor with me. At least I beat Victoria. Now given the freedom to explore the city I shall now spend hours never going any further than the grass right outside Grand Hall. I had a hurdle to overcome and a mini hurdle before that. I needed Bibarel to get Female Combee as it was the only Pokémon that learned Headbutt in the area. See if I had taken any time to plan, I wouldn't have searched for a Female Combee right now. You can also find Combee in Adventurine Woods, and by then hopefully have a Shiny Male Lopunny with Cute Charm increasing the rate of a Female Combee from 12.5% to 66.7%. Better yet Igglybuff is nearby and can also have the ability Cute Charm, but as the title of the chapter states I didn't plan. So I grinded away looking for shiny Pokémon. Then my first shiny appears, and little did I know, I would come to depend on this Pokémon more than I could ever imagine. Watchog was the MVP of this challenge run. It has the ability Illuminate which increase encounter rate, learns Super Fang a very handy move for capturing Pokémon, and can learn the majority of HM moves. I was disappointed that I didn't find a Meowth first, but over the course of the run I came to value Watchog more and more, and I can't imagine the run without her. After Watchog came Meowth, and a horde of Rattatas. Still I needed Bidoof, and eventually I got one. I also managed to catch all the others in the area except for Hoothoot and Spinarak, but trust me even without planning I wouldn't need to; THEY ARE EVERYWHERE. With Bidoof in hand I quickly leveled him up to get access to headbutt. I actually really liked the headbutt mechanic as a kid playing Pokémon Crystal; brings back feelings of mystery and wonder. My upbeat happiness will be short lived however, little did I know Reborn trees are made out of grenades. Why oh why does Pineco learn SELF-DESTRUCT AT LEVEL 6! I can only imagine what the nurse in the Grand Hall is thinking when I walk in covered in explosive burns with my fainted Pokémon. Me coming to the desk asking her to heal them up just for me to walk outside, and then the sound of explosives going off again. Still my Bibarel's head is made of adamantium as I tell it to headbutt over and over again. During those hours I came across many, many shiny Pineco's and I didn't catch most of them. I should have started with Mudkip it has access to Damp which negates Self-Destruct and Explosion; again title of the chapter. Still they aren't the target no we have a much more elusive predator to look for. Couple hours later the first Shiny Combee arrives of course it's male I wasn't expecting much else. Unfortunately I killed it because by now my Bibarel is level 20, and well I overestimated Combee's tankiness. More Combee's appeared all being male of course even had a Shiny Spearow drop in. Then suddenly she appears a Shiny Female Combee on my fifth Combee. I consider myself incredibly lucky I was preparing to be here for two days at least, but the RNG gods saw otherwise they won't be so nice in the future. Satisfied that I had accomplished my goal for the area I finally muster up the courage to talk to the little girl blocking my way out to the rest of Reborn. She tells me her Stufful won't listen to her anymore because she doesn't have the level appropriate badge, and that Pokémon of Reborn won't listen to you no matter how buddy buddy you are with them. Considering how I treated my Pokémon to explosive ordinance and Biberal's head is caved in I wouldn't blame them. Looking out into the horizon I only had one goal in mind; Home Invasion of an Elderly Man. I think this is a good place to stop. If you're interested, and want me to continue let me know, but if this annoys and bothers people I'll stop. Oh wait... here's 500 bucks fisherman I'll see you in a couple weeks. NOTES: *I know my grammar, word choice and general story telling is awful I get enough of that from my Architecture friend whose side hobby is writing stories, so feel free to badger away. *Some of the Pokémon met dates will be off because of messing with system time for weather event specific Pokémon, and the fact that I often transferred my save file to a laptop to take to work to play during break, or when it's a very slow day at the hospital. It's a very old laptop and dies if it's not plugged in. *If you're wondering why many of the Pokémon are Level 69 it's because I took like two days to grind all my Pokémon to that level just before the level cap of 70 you know before Agate Circus. I stopped doing this afterwards it its tedious with 15 boxes of Pokémon.

  12. If you choose the path of Ideals he never dies. For Taka you have to remember that said organization wasn't originally a group of terrorists it was twisted into that by Lin. Also Taka didn't just feel bad or whine about it, he acted as a mole where he actively helps the player many times. You forcing him to reveal himself isn't a change of heart, he was already working against them from the inside, its a betrayal of trust that gets him killed. Without Taka's interference more people would've been killed. Just because you don't think he should know how to sabotage the machine doesn't have the knowledge and afterward he was repentant and helps against Blake. Things aren't black and white.

  13. Blake let an entire city starved and locked heather in a cage on top of Mt. Amerterine , one of the coldest area in the game. Dude , have people begging him for food but all he cares about is himself. Hell , Cal , try to be a better person after throwing Kiki’s Medicham into the volcano. Likewise,he’s the only person in the game that if he dies I wouldn’t shed a tear . Edit: Fern may be insecure but Blake takes being asshole to a whole new level.

  15. All of the Aevian forms do actually have dex entries..... Just that the Pokédex won't heckin cooperate in-game and doesn't show alternate forms properly. I'll probably put together a post with all the dex entries at some point!

  16. A little bit overdue for this one. I think I've gotten far enough with my prep work that allows this thread to go up! So what's there to expect with v13.5? +Updated Gen 8 DLC moves/movesets +DLC mon inclusions. (Galarian Slowpoke, etc.) +New Sidequests. +Small main story addition +Quality of Life additions. +New Aevian forms. +And more! Of course, all of this will be elaborated on in future posts, but for now I'll let these marinate in your minds for now.

  19. Before I share these next 2 I want to establish that neither of the front sprites were made by me; they were made by a user named bazaro in a thread called reborn mega sprites; though they were missing back sprites & I liked these so much I decided to make back sprites for them; though I will share the front sprites too (for better context) all the credit goes to the user bazaro.

  22. This is just a WIP of mine but I've always felt that any mega metagross back sprite I could find online just didn't do the insanely badassely designed pokemon justice. I've been working on one of my own for a few hours yesterday & another few today & was also wondering if anyone decided they wanted to make some tweaks to it (because my work is no where near flawless in this one) they can take the full credit I'd just really like to see the persons work. Anyway here is my megagross back sprite WIP (not a shiny recolor this time). (The 2nd one is another attempt with a different upper right front limb) (Update: Did some more work I think these next more recent 2 might be a little bit better)

  25. Now that v13's newest story gives quite an Undertale vibe and the previous one had some changes here and there, I'm starting to think of a Rejuv story but with Frisk, Undertale's MC, as the Interceptor. One of the storyline changes in v13 is how the bad future arc's climax choices are handled, so I might as well make a one-shot of how it goes with Frisk. For the record, Frisk is a non-binary in a male body (I'm going for Axel's) with they/them pronouns here. And before I forgot, Undertale spoiler alert. Read at your own risk. Sorry for the shortness though. I did it on my phone and that's all I can think of for now.

Development of Episode 6 should be a great time, especially now that Ruby, Posty and I have really got the gears turning in terms of efficiency. I'm excited to see what we will bring to the table, and I'm excited at the prospect of really stepping things up, especially with the feedback that I have received. I'm honestly stoked to see how well Desolation was received by the community, despite it's multi-year absence. We'll be in touch! Caz

  27. Reuploded Spork with the following updates and fixes UPDATES -Gen 8 DLC Pokemon added -Smoothie solos added -added item Throat Spray (sold at the Battle Mall) -added move Double Iron Bash -genderless Pokemon can now learn Attract -Oricorio forms are randomly determined on encounter (previously only Baile form could be found naturally in the wild) -Triston's Golisopod changed to Inteleon (nickname still Waiter) -Strawberry's nickname theme changed from emoticons to Sanrio characters -Chelsea's Pyukumuku's nickname changed from Mari to Chika, and Primarina nickname changed from Riko to Mari -Raymond's Aerodactyl and Aurora's Abomasnow now mega evolve in their postgame rematches (Raymond's key stone is called Mega Gavel and Aurora's is called Mega Skates) -Tomas's Toxtricity's held item in the gym battle changed from Wise Glasses to Throat Spray -Clifford's birthplace changed from Eterna City, Sinnoh to Stow-on-Side, Galar -Anthony now has different dialogue at Crolea's birthday party if you didn't speak to him at the Pokemon Research Institute prior to attending the party -continuing with the Sonic name themes of the teams in the Tapu Bulu quest, the Cosmic Meowstics are now named Silver and Blaze BUG FIXES -at Shiny Scouting, Eternatus encounter options are now activated by action button instead of event touch -evomethodsandotherchanges notepad file now mentions that it doesn't need to be night for Galarian Linoone to evolve into Obstagoon Reupload plans changed a lot the past month. Smoothie solos and Gen 8 DLC Pokemon were added at the same time. One day last month the topic of Gen 8 DLC Pokemon came up in the Rejuv dev server, where Jan mentioned that we do have sprites for them since leparagon gave us permission to use theirs, and they just hadn't been added yet. Following this realization, I started adding them to Spork. The legendarysidequests notepad file has been updated with information on how to obtain the new legendaries. The following are not currently included: -Gen 8 DLC gigantamegas: the document we (Rejuv team) have for deciding on their abilities and stats doesn't currently have anything for Urshifu -battle cries -summary screen icons for Gen 8 DLC Pokemon are all Slowpoke as placeholders for now, similar to how Lycanroc was once used as a placeholder for the Pokemon added in USUM Smoothie solo song names Lemon: Scenic Route Orange: Aromatherapy Cherry: Cherry Blossoms Lime: GRASS GREEN NEW WORLD Grape: Solo Solo Blueberry: Relic Anthem Strawberry: Plushie Party You can start the Smoothie solos arc after completing Planet Puzzle. If you've already completed it, you would go back to Planet Puzzle and then leave. Also as part of the change in reupload plans, the new planet that was going to be included with Gen 8 DLC has been moved to next reupload. There's still brainstorming that needs to be done for it, and I feel like it'd be easier to work on at % energy as opposed to in the same timeframe as Smoothie solos and Gen 8 DLC Pokemon, which both used a lot of brain battery. I really enjoyed doing them, though, and I hope everyone else enjoys them too!

  30. CHAPTER 2: CASCOON, CASCOON, SILCOON and A TESTAMENT OF WILL After busting into an old man's apartment, it was time to search for quite a list of Pokémon. I quickly notice on the Wiki that Trubbish has a 1% chance of spawning, so I'm not going to worry about it here, and Stunky as well since I know they are also in Peridot Alley. The focus right now is Cherubi, Spinarak, Ledyba, Hoothoot, Caterpie, and Wurmple <.< ... The first Wrumple arrives and I really like it, but I know I'm going to need a couple of them to get both Dustox and Beautifly. Not long after a Shiny Ledyba appears... and another... and another..., and oh my lord please no. Yeah I was being swarmed by these things, and they are found in multiple areas in Reborn they will plague me throughout the run not as much as another Pokémon that starts with T, but it's third. I then luck into a Shiny Cherubi not bad. Having acquired most of the morning Pokémon, I change my system time to night and continue hunting. I catch a few more Wurmples up to four by the time I finish catching all the other night time Pokémon. Spinarak, Hoothoot, and Caterpie is caught without too much trouble. By the way, my friends and I were discussing what Pokémon we used in Generation 1. I told them I kept Butterfree all the way through the game, and my friends asked me why. Butterfree is pretty fast, and has Compound Eyes Sleep Powder need I say more. Also Butterfree is pretty handy Pokémon to have on this run primarily for Compound Eyes to increase item collection rate, and Sleep Powder a very accurate move in the hands of Butterfree and a nice status condition to help capture Pokémon. I'll be using the Ariados later to help deal with a Pesky Land Shark, but that's way later in the run. With four Wurmples in hand I begin leveling each one, and evolving them odds are I'll get one of each no problem. First one evolves into a Cascoon, and that's one down now just need a Silcoon. Second evolves again Cascoon to be expected, but surely the next one will be a Silcoon. The third one evolves; another Cascoon, I'm starting to sweat. The last one evolves... it's a Cascoon. I'm pretty much defeated. At this point I still haven't learned to check where else I can find Pokémon later in the run to counter the early woes. I jump back in to find another Wurmple, and desperately level it up praying to whichever god would hear me out. It's evolving, and finally I get my one Silcoon. All right Bibarel you know what time it is. Nothing too interesting here I find both a Male and Female Burmy for Mothim and Wormadam. I really like Wormdam's Shiny sprite neat concept. After causing the next extinction event in the Old Man's precious garden I head off to the lake to go fishing. Every time I have to fish I deactivate speed mode because I do not have a fast enough reaction time to keep it on maybe younger me could do it, but younger me thought Drakengard 1 was an easy game on the hardest difficulty. Two Goldeens, 1 Finneon, and 1 Grimer later, and I'm done packing away the Old Rod for what will be a very long time. Now a quick stop in the alleyway. I gather the rest of the crew; Poochyena, Stunky, and Trubbish. All done yup nothing left in the alleys we're good to move on to the event Mons... A Wild Purrloin appeared... Nani? I didn't know Purrloin was here. I totally missed it when looking up the WIki, and it never appeared during my search for the other shinies... YOU HAVE A 21% CHANCE OF FINDING IT HOW DID I NEVER SEE IT TILL I WAS ABOUT TO LEAVE. A bit more searching, and done Shiny Purrloin acquired now we're done. It's on to the event Pokémon. First one to bat is Pachirisu being cornered by some hooligans honestly at this point every battle is a curb stomp since my Pokémon are around level 18-20, so every fight is going to be a foregone conclusion. About 58 resets later, and Shiny Pachirisu is in the bag. I make a quick stop to nab myself another Bidoof just a normal one this time quick and simple and speed level it by fighting all the fights I avoid up to this point. Pay some money to a dude in an alley to get out of the way, and next up is Espurr... 428 resets... I actually started to give up. I mean in Sword and Shield I have boxes of shinies but you know its like 1/512 so 1200 Mons after I'm still motivated to keep going, but Reborn's 1/100 can be demoralizing. By the way my Espurr was female so just note that... just something I'd like to point out... Blitzle, Joltik and Tynamo all take swings at my determination with 212, 359, and 520 resets really testing my patients aren't you guys. Fortunately those are the worse of it. Pansear takes a good 145 resets, but not too bad. I totally forgot Woobat and Noibat are around here so I go out of my way to catch them too didn't take long. I secure a shiny Igglybuff from a scared old lady, and I'm not giving it back unless she can tell me what color her Igglybuff was. Surskit, Whismur and Gulpin are caught with just 8, 21, and 32 resets; about time I got easy wins. Teddiursa is no where to be found, and I searched everywhere I just can't find it. I'll end up returning and nabbing it later. Heading into an apartment, Shelly asked me to take a Shiny Kricketot with me on the 13th parallel universe. Lastly it's late at night I'm exhausted from spending nearly 20 hours hunting for shiny Pokémon, and I have one to go. I walk in, and begin trading my Plain, Normal, Non-Shiny Bibarel for Greg's Munna. I get it on second try is what I would like to say. No, my dingus smooth brain hits F12 without even looking, and my subconscious tasers my brain to attention to realize I just reset over a shiny. I would like to give you a number of resets, but no it gets worse I reset not once, not twice, but three times over a shiny Munna. I wanted to go to bed 4 hours ago. I gather my brainpower just long enough to nab the fourth shiny that appears, and head off to bed it's been a long day. Now with everything checked off, and done it's time to progress the plot I post a screenshot to my friends right before I fight Fern, and they remark on what in gods name took me that many hours to get to Fern. It is at this point they realize what I'm doing. Fern doesn't stand a chance six level 20 Pokémon vs his three that are barely out of their teen levels. Quiver Dance Mothim just annihilated him, and I had five more Pokémon that never saw combat. The battles with Team Meteor were pushovers as well at this point my character is jaded the woes and concerns of both my allies and team meteor are but white nose to the cries of a Butterfree coming out of its Pokeball for the twenty thousandth battle in a row. I meet Julia at her gym and Moxie Mightyena sweeps her team. I had Loudred on my team to counter her sonic boom. Pachirisu with Volt Absorb to counter her damage, Kricketune as a back up sweeper, Persian for fake out and revenge killing. None of it mattered Mightyena had it handled. This is a good place to stop for Chapter 2 up next something far worse than what I had to deal with. NOTES: *I'll be taking a bit of time in between post. I essentially devoured Reborn over the course of a month with very little sleep, and a whole lot of shiny hunting. So I just need to spend some time doing other things, and catching up on games I didn't bother touching. *One of the reasons I rushed through the game in one month like this was because I was worried Reborn would be done before I finished the run, and I wanted to finish the run before Chapter 19 came out.

  31. So true. I see Cal being a big part of E19, just because we have seen so little of him, and him consequently gaining the retribution he so badly desires from most of the main cast. BUT, no way with Victoria, don't see her ever forgiving him.

  32. OK lets grant that wish. Without Taka's and his family someone would be able grab Arceus more easily for their own ends, (as their role used to be guardians, till Lin twisted the goal to be the complete opposite) Taka's interference wouldn't have happened so the player and other people would most likely be dead, Lin would still be around and still be able to form Team Meteor as we know them today some other way, as she doesn't really need the family, she just used them for their insight and connections, Sirius would rise to power earlier, the volcano would go off without a hitch and Blake would be successful in his schemes because no Cal, Eclipse wouldn't be there to stop PULSE Clawlitzer, Luna wouldn't exist and thus the void would be a permanent prison and Evelynn and Lumina wouldn't exist, which would be the only potential positive as there is a chance there would be no PULSE pokemon. (forcing Lin to rely on the megas or gigamaxing) I think that covers everything

  33. Hello ! I would like to talk about the Delcatty Crest ^-^ I discovered it with Risa and I thought it was useless, until I learnt how it works. This crest is powerful but has one weakness : its stats. Indeed Delcatty receives 10% of each stat of each unfainted Pokémon you have in your party. You can make different sets for Delcatty : Special, Physical, or Defensive. The problem is Delcatty needs all of your Pokémon. More you lose Pokémon during the battle, weakest Delcatty becomes. However, I think using a Special Bulky Offense is a good idea with Delcatty. Here is the set : Delcatty Ability: Wonder Skin EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Timid Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Hyper Voice - Thunderbolt / Grass Knot - Ice Beam / Shadow Ball - Calm Mind / Charge Beam For the moment, Delcatty can't learn Calm Mind and Ice Beam. These moves are important for setting up Delcatty and having BoltBeam. So, I use Charge Beam to increase SpA. Let's compare its stats : First, there are the 'base stats' of Delcatty And here you can see the new stats when all the team is ready for a good battle : Speed : 416 ! It's faster than Dragapult, and pretty bulky for setting up. And I'll show you the team I used to have these stats ^^ So what do you think about Delcatty now ?

  34. Its an argument you could make for most enemy groups in any pokemon game, but in every case, those groups exist and at the moment of the players entry into the story, they're causing harm to the characters in universe. Taka is but a cog in a machine (being Lin's meteor) that he alone cannot stop, and as such has been doing his part as discreetly as he once was able to, sabotage a corrupted and change Meteor. Yes without Taka's involvement at all he wouldn't even be debated as being evil, but considering his circumstances and actions, he fights for what he truly believes in, which is what I believe Is a more noble goal than what Lin is currently utilizing the group for.

  36. Eh...it really doesn't. While it uses a lot of the same mechanics, Rejuvenation has an extremely different style, tone, even down to basic storytelling. Honestly it feels less and less like a Pokemon game as time goes on, but it definitely isn't a Reborn copy in the slightest.

  37. If we can collectively wait for over 3 years, I think we can wait just a little longer for this to be worth the hype

  38. Saki Blakeory from Reju and T3RR4 P13RC3 from Reborn as a Crossover. Since they are both crazy and also technically skilled, would they get along well? Erin/Eriena with her Absol. Since I'm currently on the latest version, Erin made it to number 2 in my ranking. :)

  43. "One with a soul as gold as Arceus light. One with the resolve to lead others. One who fights for a lost loved one." One is the Interceptor and the one with the resolve to lead others is Aelita, it's crystal clear. I haven't got the time to collect my thoughts, but I think we lack info for the rest. But I'll come back at some point with my mind collected. About the one with a soul as Arceus I see two options, Melia and Adrest. -Nymiera's letter to Alexandra said that 1/3 of the entity's soul fell right in front of her and it was Adrest. I'm eliminating this option immediately for two reasons. Firstly because Adrest can't be two lights of the prophecy. And secondly because he doesn't have a soul AS gold as Arceus, his soul IS part of him. -We know that Vitus wished for children and Erin,Alice,Allen,Maria came to exist, not Melia. Melia btw is sure she isn't Maria and I tend to believe that. So we all choose Melia blindly because she is more of a "main character" but we lack info, these 5 may use Polymerization who knows. About the other one who fights for a lost loved one. I can think of Cresent, Nim, Ana and Nymiera, but I believe it's Cresent. Check this out. Alexandra had suggested that the world had already been restarted once by activating the Resetting Core. Because Adrest lives inside the MC, she thought that we activated it. So we entered the Zeight to find out about that and instead we learnt that Cresent is the secondary co-host of Adrest. Remember back in Spotlight City, in the Phoenix Academy with Cresent and all the possible MCs when the Storm-9 hit. Our MC pushed Cresent off the cliff to save her, they said they love each other. She must have activated the Core to reset the world soon after, resetting everything except herself. Then at SS.Oceana where she summoned our MC with the black box, we made a contract with Veriya to be the Interceptor, but we got half the duties of the Interceptor. Cresent, Dahlia was probably born of man, we don't know much yet but she had a brother. In this world however, maybe she classifies as not born of man because everything was reset except her, and her lost loved one is the MC before the reset. What do you think?

  45. Due to the upload limit here's the last member. Due to the fact that Laura's Gloves are either green or pink depending on if it's her VS-Sprite or her Trainer-Sprite, she decided to go with pink gloves.
