    Pokemon Games Discussion Thread



    New Starters, a new World, a whole new Generation of Pokemon to come and lastly tons of fun. I've been going through the old games I didn't access to back when the games come out the past year, so I'll get to this eventually.

    I usually always go with the Water Starter in the Pokemon games over the years, going back to Squirtle, but I just might to rock with the fast Bunny out here putting people to sleep with his or her speed.

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    I am very excited about this. As if I wasn't getting enough mileage from my Switch, they have to go and introduce this!

    I'm not really sure what the differences are between the two but I am tempted to go with Shield.

    My picks have varied every year:

    1 - Bulbasaur
    2 - Totodile
    3 - Mudkip
    4 - Piplup
    5 - Tepig
    6 - Fennekin
    7 - Rowlet

    2 grass, 3 water, 2 fire. Leaning towards Scorbunny this time.

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    I decided to change the Title to just not Sword and Shield discussion, but games from the past and present as well. Anyone playing the old games currently whether it's a Randomized Nuzlocke Challenge you're doing or are you just playing it straight up? I'm playing Crystal Randomized right now time to face the Elite Four, but fuck me I was highly pissed when one of my so called Legendaries in Tin Tower turned out to be Hoothoot at Level 40

    Randomised challenges are absolutely amazing. I was once playing a randomised black version and got a starter Bouffalant which was a dragon type and the only moves it knew were Final Gambit and Splash. Can't remember what it's ability was.

    I've been dipping in and out of the old games while still cracking on with my completed USUM. Currently training a mono water team:

    Drizzle Politoed (shiny) - that took me literally weeks to hatch
    Protean Greninja
    Mega Swampert
    Rain Dish Blastoise
    Golisipod
    Azumarill


    I've also got a few other monotype teams but these are my favourite

    Grass
    Venusaur
    Breloom
    Rotom Cut
    Whimsicott
    Trevenant
    Tangela


    Fairy (my favourite type and team along with grass)
    Clefable
    Azumarill
    Whimsicott
    Klefki
    Mimikyu
    Gardevoir


    My favourite team I've got is my kind of gothic/evil team with psychic, dark and ghosts:
    Chandelure
    Greninja
    Hydreigon
    Mimikyu
    Reuniclus
    Gengar

    Awesome groups Shock. Greninja of the newer Generation has been one of my favs. I love his look, his Moveset, everything about him.

    Last night I faced the Elite Four and the Champion and for the first time ever I won on the first shot. Granted I had plenty of money for Revives, Full Restores, and Hyper Potions, but still it was a tough road. I had my hands full with Champion Lance dude had a FUCKING MUK..A FUCKING MUK that was his Second to last Pokemon and a Articuno. The Muk had me wanting to pull my Hair out, between the Minimize shit he does, and Sludge was killing me. Poor Golem was missing Rock Throw and Magnitude didn't help things at all I barely survived that and then Articuno was spamming Power Snow or something like that thank goodness getting him burned and unleashing some Surfs got the job done.

    Yeah I love Greninja too. Such an interesting design and its abilities are so good. Oh you're going to hit me with an electric type move? Would be a shame if I just turned into a ground type right in your face. So awesome.

    I hate minimize. It's the bane of my existence in the Battle Tree.

    My favourite thing is making teams. Want to make a team from each generation, so I'm going to start with Gen V since it's so under appreciated. I know it's got some bad designed Pokemon, but the good stuff in Gen V is so good. Going to build this soon:

    Whimsicott, Mr Pringles Man, Darmanitan, Galvantula, Hydreigon, Reuniclus

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    You see as a young Teenager I stopped at playing Pokemon Games with Silver so alot of these new Pokemon are like wtf to me. Now I do play the Pokemon Card Game Online which I love, but geez I wonder what kinda Drugs were these guys and gals taking before making the designs. I did play Ruby last year not randomized and I enjoyed that even though I had to look up where to go during the game. I'm sure as I play the newer games, I'm going to lose it I know it

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    Pokemon designs have always been hit or miss. Even in Gen I, you had absolutely rubbish pokemon designs like Diglett, Jynx, Mr Mime and Seel. Gen II you had Sunflora and Smoochum.

    The only gen I think that has bad designs all round is Gen VII. I like a couple of them. I think Lycanroc is really cool; the Tapus are awesome; Mimikyu is right up there as one of the best designed Pokemon ever; and words can't describe how much I love Bewear. But I hate pretty much every other Gen VII Pokemon.

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    Greninja was so OP in my first playthrough of X that I barely used it. I still need to get back into Sun/Moon. I wiped my previous save because I didn't remember shit and I'm slowly getting hyped for S/S.

    But I also dread the fucking trials or whatever so maybe I'll just break my cartridge in half.

    Yeah the trials and layout of the game is quite bad. Nice to see them do something different from gyms but I found it very difficult to get into Sun and Moon.
