What is your favorite Pokemon and generation? How did you get into this series? Discuss.

No. 33730

Favorite from each gen:

I - Mew / Meowth / MissingNo.
II - Jumpluff / Corsola
III - Skitty (obv)
IV - Probably Drifloon
V- Reuniclus / Chandelure
VI- Klefki / Flabebe line
VII - Eh, not sure.

I've played since RB came out. I remember being a little kid and my brother, who knew I loved cats, told me about this new cartoon with a bunch of monsters, called Pokemon. That there was even a talking cat! I was all over that shit.

Then he showed me Red version on the Super Gameboy we'd gotten, and I was super hyped. I don't even remember when, but I began playing on his file and catching MissingNo.
(The best pokemon, obviously)

The rest is history.

For the most part, I like every gen, I feel like they all have something I like. But my all time favorite is probably Gen II, but I also really liked Gen V.

No. 33731

I love cute Pokémon, like Jigglypuff, Oddish, Mudkip, Drifloon, and Vulpix. Gen III will probably always be my favorite, because it’s the first gen I played when it was new. I also love gen I. I’ve been working on a playthrough of Yellow where I use the Ditto glitch to fill the Pokédex. I’m mostly done with it, but I’ve taken a break for now.

I got into the series because kids at school liked it, and I tried (and failed) to make friends with them. I started watching the show, then my dad bought me a used copy of Yellow for $10. Now Pokémon is really nostalgic for me. I still watch a couple of indigo league episodes once in a while.

When I was little I watched the original anime on tv and had a whole bunch of Pokémon books. I also saw the first movie in theaters and had some random merchandise like an electric pikachu toothbrush.

I didn’t play the games until a friend gave me an old game boy advance sp with a copy of pokemon crystal. My favorite 1st gen pokemon were Lapras and Sandslash

No. 33739

I’m pretty old so I got into the series when I was subscribed to Nintendo Power as a kid and got those little Pokémon Power mini-magazines they included when Pokémon Red and Blue were about to be released in the states.

My favorite generation is probably gen II probably because it’s the one I played the most and was just such a significant upgrade from the first one. My starter was Cyndaquil so Typholsion is probably the closest I have to a favorite Pokémon. I missed out on gens III and IV though and have been meaning to play those for a while.

No. 33740

I'm 19 and I started with Pokémon Pearl on the DS.
I also loved Pokémon Ranger and Explorers of Darkness / Time, also on the DS.

favourite pokemon is and always will be espeon. best pink cat

favourite generation is X and Y, i know a lot of people dislike that generation and even i dont really know why its my favourite, it just is lol. second fave is 3rd gen.

got into pokemon when the first games came out in europe, i was like 4. have liked it ever since although never been quite as obsessed as i was between ages 4-11. i watched all the episodes of the anime back then too.

I was aware of what pokemon is when i grew up but i never played the games bc we were too poor and 3rd world to have gaming consoles and the anime seemed too childish for me. then i really got into pokemon go when it came out (i still play lmao) and played moon and ultra sun when they came out. moon was alright but ultra sun was very boring and i felt like an adult playing a game for 8 year olds. I'm considering getting alpha ruby/omega sapphire once uni goes on winter break because a friend who's really into pokemon said it's her favourite and i don't want to be a fake fan that only plays pokemon go lol

anyways, my fav is tangela and i was quite upset when the cut 1st gen pokemon concepts came out earlier this year bc tangela's evolution looked mega cute

i'm obsessed with pokemon. primarily the first two gens as they're the most nostalgic for me, but i still play almost all the games (at least the new gens if not the gen-specific sequels they always get). i'll admit i forget the names of most of them past gen 2, but i still love pokemon so much! it's a huge part of my life.

my fave pokemon is bulbasaur (the whole line really), and my fave gen is pretty evenly split between 1 and 2. r/b/y was a masterpiece, g/s/c was a masterpiece that expanded. it's too hard for me to choose.

i will always hold pokemon close to my heart. have some nostalgia from a simpler time.

My favourite game was Pokemon diamond for the DS, my favourite Pokemon in general are cyndaquil and bulbasaur

>favorite pokemon
I have a lot that I love, but absolute favs are probably Houndoom and Wailord.

>favorite gen

GSC, followed by DPP and XY.

>how did you get into the series

I was in 5th grade and had a huge crush on this kid in my homeroom who was super into pokemon like everyone else was at the time. We had the old ass brick gameboy at home so I asked my parents for one of the games. They got me Red and I wound up loving it so much I didn't even give a shit about impressing him anymore.

I was pretty obsessed with the series until being disappointed with RSE. I thought it was going to be a sequel more in the vein of GSC (which I was obsessed with to the point of actually completing the pokedex, the first and only time I've ever done that). I didn't really like the music, the style, or many of the pokemon that gen.

When DPP came out I put off playing it for years because I didn't have a DS. When I finally got the money for it I picked up Pearl and loved it a lot. Then BW came out and thought it was shit so I stopped caring again until XY. I wanted to play Sun and Moon, but my 3DS was lost on an international flight so I never got further than a few gyms and haven't bothered replacing it since the 3DS is being retired anyway.

No. 33748

I remember when the games came out and everybody at day care had 'em.
Weirdly, I didn't find a favorite Pokemon till after I dropped it when entering college and then rediscovering during gen 4. Good ol Baltoy is my pal.

Favorite gen is five because it's the most complete, there were a lot of cool Pokemon and it was the last before crap like mega evolution and z crystals. And Unova might be best region.

No. 33749

What's weird is having a favorite Pokemon from when you started playing (I started w/Red) and, like, I feel guilty changing it lol. So I like to have a top 5 for each generation.

I: Charmander (my first fav. It was also my favorite number–4. And the mascot of my favorite color. It was destiny). Flareon, Magneton, Haunter, and Gloom round out the rest.
II- Cyndaquil, Politoed, Lanturn, Magcargo, Porygon2
III-Mudkip, Skitty, Shiftry, Metang, Camerupt
IV- Empoleon, Luxray, Dusknoir, Toxicroak, Roserade
V-Eelektross, Chandelure, Swoobat, Audino, Trubbish
VI-Chesnaught, Litleo, Pyroar (yes, I'm counting them separate because I love both of them), Espurr, Klefki
VII-Litten, Rockruff, Mimikyu, Tsareena, Salazzle

My favorite gen is 2, 3 or 6. I really did not like 5 or 7. 5 was better when they released the sequels so you weren't bound to just Unova Pokemon, but I think I will always have negative memories towards it because an incel-tier guy asked me out by saying 'hey, will you check out my team?' and he had named them "Anon/will you/go/out/with/me". And that was… not good. Don't do that. Unless you absolutely know someone will say yes, don't do it.

I just haven't gotten around to liking gen 7. I finished Sun, never finished the sequel. I'm salty they didn't do any sequels for XY. Z was there… calling their name. But they didn't answer. They had way better trainer customization options than SM/USUM. Like. I just don't understand. XY brought back my love for Pokemon that was lost with BW. I know people say the plot was weak for it/mega evolutions suck, but I really enjoy the game every time I play through it. It's one of the games I'll do type-restriction challenge because they make it fairly easy to at least get half a team going at the start for various ones.

Remake-wise, I loved HGSS. So. Much. I loved having your lead follow you around and I loved Lyra's character design. It's a feel-good game for me. I liked the mini-game things that were next to the National Park.

I fucking love this movie and probably will go see it again in a week or two! It's absolutely joyful and fun. I am looking forward to a sequel.
I really wanted to play the original game, but then I found out it's really simplistic and for kids only. Maybe that's for the better, since I am still paying for my Switch.
Really bummed about lack of merch where I live.

I loved this movie, I thought it was so cute and sweet. It was like a dream coming true to see CGI Pokémon in the big screen. My friend didn't like the movie and it was her suggestion to go, she said it was "too childish"…

No. 33753

I really loved to see a more character focused Pokemon story. The Pokemon world is so interesting and yet Nintendo does NOTHING with it. You can tell so many interesting stories in it and yet all the Pokemon anime movies are a cliche fest centering on Ash (who's not a very interesting protagonist). I wish we could get more stories like Detective Pikachu. It's sad that I have to dig for the few good Pokemon fanfic and fancomics (like It's a Hard Life) to experience a good story involving Pokemon (other than the movie, of course).

Weird to hear that the movie was too kiddy for someone. To me it was clear that just like PoGo, it was targeting grownass millenials AND their kids. The plot was obviously easy to understand, but there were plenty of things for adult pokemon fan to enjoy.

Loved the movie, hated the ending though. Also couldn’t get over how ugly a lot of the Pokémon were

Hope you don't mean Mr Mime, there is no way this fucker is not ugly.
I also found the ending the weakest part I am always bored when the time comes for the Final Boss battle and all action Hollywood movies tend to do it recently.

I love the movie too, anon. The Bulbasaurs made me cry tears of joy.

No. 33758

I fucking love Pikachu. He's the mascot and the first that I saw when the first season would play on TV. I felt like a basic bitch for loving Pikachu when a lot of my friends around me would pick other pokemon as their favorite, but now as an adult I don't give a fuck because Pikachu has the most merch anyway so I'm never short of finding cute Pikachu things (both a blessing and a curse).

My dad bought and let me play the first generation of games when I was like… 4 years old or some shit but I didn't get too far (up to where the Snorlax is blocking the path) because I could barely read and understand what I was reading lol. The first game that I finished from beginning to end was ruby/emerald, but I didn't play any of the games before or after that until Sun/Moon came out. Sun/Moon was the first pokemon game I actually bought for myself with my own earned money lol. I really want to get alpha sapphire/omega ruby to play some day!

TV show wise, I fucking love the Sun and Moon series. Absolutely love it. All the seasons are really fun to watch and I'll watch them whenever I happen to catch them on TV, but Sun and Moon was the first one where I really watched all the episodes in order (I'm very much behind now, but I would watch it weekly when it first started airing for the first few weeks). I loved how much more slice of life-y it is, and even if people shit on the art style, I think it's fucking cute as shit and I love those moments where they switch from really simply and cutesy, to more detailed and ugly faces lol. At some point I was watching it subbed because the dub was taking too long to come out, and even though Netflix has it now, I'm too used to the subbed to want to switch back to the dub (which is only what they have). The OP/ED are cute as fucking shit and I downloaded the songs and sing along to them too. I haven't watched Detective Pikachu yet but I want to so bad.

I was into pokemon from 5 up until a few years ago (grew out of it? idk). At that age I just watched the show and had toys. I was only allowed to start playing at 10 when my mom bought me a gameboy advance and leafgreen for me for my birthday. It was a really fond memory.
Growing up my favourite games were by far the Mystery Dungeon ones, the humour appealed to my young self and I preferred interacting with pokemon as characters rather than owning/training them. I bought the newer PMD game a couple years back and I still haven't finished it since I'm just not into vidya much anymore.

Anyway Mime Jr. is cutest pokemon and you can't change my mind. Sinnoh/gen 4 will always be close to my heart since I played Pearl and PMD:EoT to death when they came out. Most of my other favourites (Darkrai, Gallade, Vespiquen) are also from that gen. Popplio is fave starter though.

Thinking about it makes me want to play again, but I know I don't have the energy anymore. Sad!

No. 33761

Is Sun and Moon worth watching for someone who loves Pokemon world and slice of life, but isn't keen on typical Ash and Team R antics?

Your fave one is Baltoy? Why? That is an interesting choice, I must say.

No. 33762

Hm, that's tough to say. I only got about 15 episodes in before outside factors stopped me from watching/keeping up, so take my words with a grain of salt I guess lol.

As for Ash, at least the episodes I've watched, there's a good dose of focus on the other characters. The very first few in the series are centered around Ash and one of the companions in the group so you get to know them a bit more. I personally don't find that Ash overtakes the show that much this season because they have to balance out such a big main cast (5 companions instead of just 2 or 3). Also, I know pokemon is all about battling, but I loved that so far I've seen minimal pokemon battles lol. There's a big one in the beginning and I've seen the Brock/Misty scenes that come up later on, but I don't think there's a whole lot of it, mostly just school and life antics.

For team rocket, they didn't really seem to cause all that much trouble. There's like one episode I watched where they fucked shit up, but the majority of it is them dealing with the Bewear who's basically captured them, and I think the scenes with them dealing with Bewear are really funny and entertaining to watch. Most of the shots I was thinking about when I mentioned the "changing from a cutesy, simple style to a more detailed ugly face" were of Team R.

That said, I hope you decide to pick it up and watch it anon! I love it so much.

Same. And it wasn't even the story, just seeing the bulbasaurs got me so emotional… That scene looked so incredible, hopefully there's gonna be more scenes set in nature in the sequel(s)

Gen 4 is definitely the one I've played the most, it was the first one that multiple of my friends had too, so finally getting to play with others (which other people obviously got to in earlier generations) elevated it sooo much in my eyes.

My favorite is Totodile, probably because he was the one I got in the Mystery Dungeon quiz.
I got into the games because of my older brother, who had grown out of it by then so I got to play all his vidya.

Anyone here played Stadium?

The N64 games? I clocked so many hours on them as a kid. I still think they're revolutionary in the way that they let you use your Pokemon from your RBY/GSC saves. Plus there were achievements in Stadium that gifted you special Pokemon you could use in your games too (Psyduck with amnesia was my favourite). Also, the minigames were TONS of fun with friends. Why haven't we gotten games like Pokemon Stadium for recent generations?

Pretty sure they are late stage encounters, the dex entry says:

It is said that Corviknight is the strongest Pokémon living in the skies of the Galar region. It can often be seen fearlessly soaring through the air. Many say that any Pokémon foolish enough to challenge Corviknight are sent running with just a sharp glare and cry from this fearsome Pokémon. Corviknight possess superb flying skills and high intelligence. Because of this, many of them work for the company called Galar Taxi, helping transport people from town to town.

exactly, I don't see how it will be strategic to use dynamax. In the gym battle they show, both pokemon are giant which makes the whole thing seem sort of pointless? Maybe they'll get special moves or something. Also, I hope they don't make every gym in the style of an arena just to accommodate the dynamax thing, that would be lame.

What do you guys think of the recent outrage over no National Dex sparking the hate against Game Freak? To be honest this post ( https://www.reddit.com/r/pokemon/comments/bzyzfo/game_freak_pok%C3%A9mon_and_lack_of_ambition_this_is_a/ ) in particular triggered me because of the complete disregard of Mega Evolutions being all "just a little stat boost nbd".

>809 pokemon and Mega Rayquaza still banned.

Sorry for ruining this thread with sperging, I know everyone here wants to talk about cute pokemon…


Dynamaxing raises the stats of a Pokemon as well as lets them use 'Max Moves' that they learn depending on what moves the Pokemon already knows. It only lasts 3 turns, but how I would see it as if a set-up Pokemon (like Ferrothorn) was Dynamaxed, it would give it an even larger health stat and if moves like say (Toxic) Spikes/Stealth Rock has a max version, your non dynamaxed Pokemon are already more than halfway to dead once they come in.

I'm pretty sure we'll get the National Dex patched into or something. But right now the national dex whining is a big irrational circlejerk. Game Freak really doesn't deserve this.

XY was great when the meta was locked to give or take 200 pokemon (until everyone went back to using Blissey and Heatran). I'm excited to see what the Galar region pokemon can do.

They could have just made it like Sun/Moon so that Pokémon not in the dex have to be transferred over and they don't get a dex entry. It seems a bit weird to cut out some Pokemon completely. Also it makes Pokemon Home a bit useless as you can put Pokemon from other games into it, but you can only take them out into Sword and Shield. So if you put in a Pokemon that's not in the Galar dex into Home, its locked there.

People were harassing GF so much over National Dex that they had to make a statement telling them to stop whining. Pretty sure this has only being posted through the American Twitter account too, proves what audience are being brats over it all.

The /r/Pokemon Reddit has gone into meltdown and there's multiple threads saying that everyone should cancel their preorders and boycott the games and if you do buy the games you are contributing to the downfall of Pokemon LMAOOOOOOOOO. Any one who says they are still buying it is getting downvoted to obvlion.

I'm happy that the new title (and to an extent Let's Go) both went against what the retarded hardcore fans want. Each iteration is an identical grindfest with no substance, people are using the same tactics over and over and are throwing shitfits about their particular fav pokemon.

These aren't the kinds of fans you wanna continue to please. I'm happy that GF is looking to change the formula, first with the pokemon go style catching mechanics and now with getting rid of the pokemon bloat over the gens.

No. 38387

I agree. Like, if it was the same thing over and over, it would be so boring. I liked the trials of Moon/Sun, I liked Go, this new Masters thing looks cool.

But no, everyone is throwing shitfit cos they can't use the exact same Pokemon team from a previous game. Everyone was praising how cool it looks but as soon as the dex was getting cut all of a sudden its "the game is lazy, the graphics are shit, it is underwhelming, Pokemon is dying off, etc." Pandering to the tard fans only care about being overpowered fucks and not the actual storyline of gameplay is idiotic and I'm glad they are taking a stance on it. And if you dare say you are still looking forward to it, you are a "bootlicking corporate shill" (actual insult I've seen used today).

Also my fav Pokemon hasn't had official merch since like 2003 other than a card here or there, so these people can handle their fav not being in ONE game.

Really loved when each new generations gimmick was something really small like "we've added berries!!!", insignificant but something cute to remember the region by. Now there has to be a big new gimmick every single time to base all their advertisement on.

Why does Pokemon Sword/Shield look so boring? I don't get why Game Freak is trying so hard to add useless and uninteresting features for battles when they would add or change the entire formula like they tried for Sun/Moon and spice things up. And the new pokemon don't look good either. I don't think I want to play this one when all the other games on the Switch look way more interesting.

I agree, the changes in previous generations were small and yet they really added something worthwhile to the whole series, like the berries and holding items in general, contests, battle frontiers, the weather. This one is going to be like Mega Evolutions, it'll be fun for the first 5 minutes then everyone will forget or complain about it.

Idrc about stats or battling as much as much as the pokemon iteself. I much rather like the designs and lore behind the pokemon. One of my favorites Phanthump is absolute trash at battling but I still used it through my X playthrough. I feel like if you use your favorites and build a good team with a variety of move coverage is more unique than having the same pool of 10-15 mons competative battling uses.

No. 40470


Unfortunately I don't think there's a real good way of connecting a real game to a rom, but if you want to play through multiplayer I'd recommend Pokemon MMO. It's exactly what it is, you use a rom and connect to servers, and you basically play through the game vanilla with the bonas of other players/customization /battles/trading. Its a little bizarre to see players clip through each other & in cutscenes but imo its a better way to play the older games with more functionality.

I’ll sound like a dickhead for this but since SWSH is based on the UK I’m … surprised the Champion is a random anime brown guy. Like what?

Is he a reference to something? His outfit is utter shite too, anything would be better than a football kit with a tacky ‘royal’ cape on top and a fucking chav hat.

Apparently the Japanese digital version Sword and Shield has a save bug that over time thinks the SD card is corrupted and they need to delete game saves.

I don't know if I should get SwSh, I'm hesitating for many reasons. I'm ok with the lack of national dex because completing it is a hassle and it makes online battles boring when you keep finding random trainers with only shiny perfect IV and EV legendaries. Anyway I have a few questions for the anons who played or are playing the game:
>what do you think about the art direction and character design for the pokemon? imo some of them look good, some look out of place even if they look good, some are fugly, more than in the previous generations
>is the game balanced around the fact that you can't turn off the exp share? or is the game trying to encourage you to rotate between a bunch of pokemon/parties thanks to the pc being accessible all the time?
>does the game lag or crash? if yes, how often? I was annoyed everytime I had to do double battles or beat totem pokemon in SM because of how much slower the game got everytime. It even crashed once.
>are there proper dungeons and routes? or is it more linear like the 3DS games?
>how intrusive is the story? I hated being interrupted in SM and USUM every 10 minutes because of cutscenes

No. 63349

>what do you think about the art direction and character design for the pokemon? imo some of them look good, some look out of place even if they look good, some are fugly, more than in the previous generations
I actually liked a lot of designs and art from this generation. I tend to lean towards the “cutesy” designs and this generation had a lot of that. I think a lot of details in some designs are clever too. Like Knickit. As for character design, while I do like a lot of the art and Marnie and Hops designs, Leon and some of the others was meh for me. I think it’s split. I liked 50-60% of character designs.
>is the game balanced around the fact that you can't turn off the exp share? or is the game trying to encourage you to rotate between a bunch of pokemon/parties thanks to the pc being accessible all the time?
Compared to Sun and Moon they really toned it down quite a bit. Even after wandering around for a few hours, fighting every trainer I ran into, and catching random Pokémon, I was still either around the same level as the gym leaders and even below the Champion. It was noticeably tougher. In a good way.
>does the game lag or crash? if yes, how often? I was annoyed everytime I had to do double battles or beat totem pokemon in SM because of how much slower the game got everytime. It even crashed once.
Offline, there’s no lag that I’ve ever noticed in gameplay. There was a noticeable lag in 2 cutscenes in the game but considering some of the other bugs people have found in the cutscenes, I’m sure they’ll do an update for it. Online in the wild area is definitely laggy. Then again, it’s an MMO styled area with no servers in place on a new game. Don’t know what they expected there. Local battles and raids have no lag either. So mainly just online.
>are there proper dungeons and routes? or is it more linear like the 3DS games?
This is what I was waiting to answer. In my opinion, this game is very nonlinear with the wild area feature. It doesn’t push you to leave it to continue the story since the wild Pokémon stay around if not above your level. You could spend forever in just that area catching a shit ton of Pokémon and camping. The main story itself is pretty standard, they direct you from gym to gym, but they let you explore wherever you want to go in between.
>how intrusive is the story? I hated being interrupted in SM and USUM every 10 minutes because of cutscenes
When I was trying to speed through the story, it definitely was being stopped every 10 minutes to have another conversation with an NPC. Granted as previously stated, they don’t really hand hold you through the game and don’t make it clear how long you’re meant to spend in the wild area or through routes. I feel like if I had broken it up by doing that stuff in between gyms, I wouldn’t have felt stopped so much. But I must admit as much as I loved the game, the story felt like it was yo-yoing me. It was a bit irritating being dragged back and forth.
>do you have more info about the bug that makes some Switch brick? I keep seeing different info that contradict each others, hopefully none of you had to experience this
Yeah. No one I know including myself has ever experienced this. Again, the only bugs I’ve come across are just silly art bugs that are easy fixes for them like Hops mouth not being filled in.

In short, I really liked the game and would say that it’s probably in my top 3. I liked all the new features it brought and I can see myself really clocking in a lot of hours. I did a standard run and finished in at 24 hours.

Ugh, ~sexy~ pokemon are a disgrace. It’s fucked up that nowadays they’re clearly intentionally designing them with r34 crowd in mind. It did start with gardevoir, which I don’t think was entirely intentional, but after it caused a huge wave of hentai fan art, they must’ve realized there’s money to be made in pandering to lonely nerds, because in every generation onwards you’ve got at least one pokemon that’s clearly coded as female and attractive, like lopunny or tsareena.

this has interesting potential but the fact they're showing it off now worries me. It tells me this is near the final product rather than proof of concept, and my concerns are:
- implied 1 town area, the rest of the map is a large empty open world
- no gyms or league, therefore no battling goals, literally just a capture and explore game (which could be solid if the world design delivers, and I don't think it will from the trailer)
- graphics aren't incredible, which I mean Pokemon isn't known for high quality graphics anyway
- bigger concern is poor framerate. Rewatch the trailer and that Chingling and Chimchar was painful, barely hitting 10fps by the look of it. So I worry this game will have poor performance.

I'm concerned about the performance as well. I'm not sure if Game Freak has it in them to create a well-designed open world game that isn't an unpolished lag fest like the wild areas in SWSH. Even BOTW still had framerate issues. Hopefully the game gets more polished before release because as is it looks pretty rough in terms of visuals.

By the way, I'm seriously thinking about replaying all the mainline games (except Shield since I'm not completely done with it). I've been thinking about some habits I had when playing long ago, before I got used to playing other JRPGs. Like how I always kept shitmons until the end because I started with them, they were cute and using more powerful pokemon I also liked felt like cheating. Or how I gave HMs to all my pokemon instead of having a HM slave, or how I sometimes avoided doing some of the side quests like the contests in Platinum then again I did too many contests in Emerald, the Pokeathlon in Soul Silver or the Hollywood stuff in Black 2. I'm also thinking about transfering most of my pokemon from older games in the Pokemon Bank, but I hate how long it takes to transfer from gen 4 to gen 5 first.

A slightly unpleasant childhood memory about Pokemon games follows. Spoiled not to creep out anons just enjoying cuteness of this thread. Sorry, I randomly remembered and wanted to get it out.
I want to complain that I understood the concept of a furry/zoophile before I even learned those words thanks to Pokemon games on Gameboy. There was this Pokemon Fanclub and I think a radio show where characters were uncomfortably fawning over Pokemon. I found it fucked up and it creeped me out. Those people were salivating too much over vulpix's shiny coat for that to not have some sinister connotation. Has anybody else been weirded by that? An even weirder thing was that I got scared of getting squirtbottle because I didn't understand what it meant and somehow assumed it's sexual. I did not know about squirting porn, or so I think. Why the fuck did I assume it means something bad instead of something related to Squirtle? What was wrong with me

Here are mine, when making the chart I realized there is almost no water, fire, electric, ice, poison or ghost pokemon I really like. I like grass, dragon, steel, ground and rock pokemon best because they're more likely to be cool tough looking pokemon, and I like pokemon who look dragon like best.
I like your pokemon too
It looks to me like you decide who is your favorite by who is the cutest, it's funny to me because when I was a kid I'd look up on bulbapedia to see which pokemon was the strongest with the best stats before I'd catch any because catching pokemon you like is for LOSERS and winners take pokemon with the best stats no matter if they are boring!

I would definitely pick Hoenn, I’m a nostalgiafag because emerald was my first Pokémon game that was like, actually mine, not a hand-me-downs from my brother.
I loved the secret bases a lot, i would spend hours just decorating my favorite one.
And if I was just a random character, I would definitely get a poohyena as my starter because I love them, then I would get a zigzagoon and a pikachu, we would win lots of pageants together and I would go to the outdoor baths to relax every once and then.

No. 166102

I would go to hoenn too, I'd love to bathe in the hot springs and I loved secret bases too. I think hoenn seems the most diverse geographically but maybe that's because I know it like the back of my hand and the other regions I don't really know. But imagine, one day you can go to the desert and dig for fossils, the next day you can collect soot to get pretty decor and look at skarmories and spindas while you collect it. Then you can bathe in hot springs, play with spoinks and admire Flannery, and then maybe next day you can go to Lilycove, to the huge mall and watch some pokemon contests and treat your pokemon to pokeblocks. Then you can go to Slateport for a swim and some icecream and check out the museum and market. I would have a Tropius and it would fly me to wherever I want and when I got hungry I'd eat the bananas under its neck. I feel like a kid again

i am also a genwunner and love the rando gen 1-2 battles but they are much wonkier and slower. anything in the current gen is very fast-paced and winning usually comes down to sweeping or saving your gmax for later.

It's just a feeling. The pattern looks too correct (the Pokémon don't look bizzare) and the fabric (the soft plush with short fur) looks like recent AliExpress Pokemon plushies I saw. The old Nirvana ones are often made with some furless cotton (like picrel). I think they are suspicious to me since they aren't bizzarely off model and made with super cheap materials.

Why does the Pikachu doesn't seem like a mirage? I saw someone else talk about a very similar one (sorry if I sound confrontational, I do not mean to — I genuinely want to reach the truth). See picrel. It seems to me like it's the same Play-By-Play plushie. I
It seems to me that people are using the mirage term wrong (not you). According to the person who coined it, mirage cannot be based on official pattern. But plenty of people sell bootlegs ripping off official plushies as mirages:
>1. They are old (so far nothing beyond Gen II has been found), made at least a decade ago.
>2. The were not mass produced, and are very rare. Usually less than five people are known to own the same kind of mirage plush, and the majority have only been seen one or two times total! The reason these plush were never mass produced is probably because:
>3. They have unknown origins (probably unlicensed), but ARE company-made, with limited-info tush tag or none at all, and created by small/independent companies that lacked the ability to mass market (see above). Notice this does not specify Europe – but 90% of these plush do come from there.
>4. They are created from a 100% unique pattern (not a reject or a copy of an existing product). The PPP is a great resource for comparing what might be a Mirage Plush to plush made by, for example, Play-by-play (which often resemble these Mirage Plush). If it's a mass-produced copy, bootleg, or factory reject of something official, it does not count as a Mirage Plush.

it's honestly not easy to describe exactly how a mirage looks vs just a bootleg of an existing official pattern. i guess the easiest way would be that they seem to be made of parts that were meant for other toys, because they were. a mirage also has little inconsistencies from what the actual pokemon is meant to look like. i'm sorry if this is too vague. my advice would be to just look at the gallery of mirages and compare them to existing plushes to try and get a feel for which are mirages.

No. 172752

there's also some SUPER wonky looking official plushes so you have to compare them to the others at the time. another hint at mirages is that they had models of pokemon in plush form before nintendo ever did. basically every pokemon was made into a mirage plush long before nintendo decided to make plushes of the more unpopular mons

>my advice would be to just look at the gallery of mirages and compare them to existing plushes to try and get a feel for which are mirages.
I genuinely hate that people show bootlegs of legitimate Pokemon plushies and call them mirages. It really muddles the term.

The whole mirage thing made me remember that I have quite a few Pokemon plushies (probably by Play-By-Play) that have the 'not for sale, only for fairs' tag. Sadly, they all look legitimate (never thought I would say it, lfmao).
Super weird that some people incorrectly call bootlegs mirages. Picrel is being sold as a mirage right now even though it's a bootleg of a legitimate plushie (IDK if by Hasbro or what, but I have it). I guess maybe they are trying to sell it for more, but people online genuinely also refer to bootlegs as mirages.
Super disappointed since the original post mentioned Poland as a source of a mirage bootleg and I haven't gotten the luck of running into any so far!

No. 172762

yeah, that's also part of why it's hard to find them. i see some plushes online right now listed as mirages that aren't. that's why, for me, i especially seek out weird colors like i mentioned before because that adds more legitimacy.

they also look "old" in a way that simple bootlegs don't but again that's so vague and hard to describe to someone unless they look at a lot of comparisons.

It's funny, my opinion is the reverse. I thought being interrupted every 5 seconds by pointless cutscenes in Sun/Moon was unbearable, which made playing USUM a pain in the ass because I thought it'd be a proper sequel and not just a third version. But I thought the cutscenes in Sword/Shield were less intrusive. By the way, if you like the wild area you'll probably like the DLC, but I recommend you play them after beating the main game and only if you don't want to shoot yourself after completing the pokedex.

>Idk maybe I've just outgrown this franchise now

Maybe, it depends on what made you like the series in the first place I guess. I feel like I've outgrown Pokemon sometimes, and then I compare previous games with the recent ones and I feel like the real problem is the direction the franchise has taken. I could definitely replay the first 6 gens no problem and have a lot of fun, but after that I'm not so sure. I grew up playing all the mainline pokemon games, and now that I'm way more familiar with way more JRPGs I feel like the first games felt way more like standards JRPGs, while the more recent ones feel very simplified. Not because of the target demographic but because of laziness, shitty deadlines and because the franchise is taking the same direction as Disney, were the "main" products, the games, are now here to advertise retarded merchandises instead of the reverse.

What are anons favorite Pokémon games? Mine is X and Y. When I played it in high school I really enjoyed the story and remember crying at the end, I hadn't really connected with any Pokémon game like that before. I also really love Pokémon Amie, and the super training. I loved watching the little sprites beat on the punching bag, kek. The little bedroom rest area for Amie was soooo cute, I loved seeing other people's Pokémon come by and sit with mine and leave cute gifts, holy balls that's adorable. I was bummed to see the changes in Sun/Moon and didn't much care for the carnival area. I also have a bias for X/Y because of the Pokémon available, Sun/Moon didn't have my favorite Pokémon except by transfer. Linoone is my fav, btw. I think he's a really well rounded little creature. He's able to use both Cut and Surf, super mega useful, and he also can learn Return which you can get pretty early as a TM and it makes him a hard ass of you bond with him.

I hate that it's like an inescapable established rule that anytime there is a new game there needs to be new Pokémon. We have enough, we've had enough. And all of the new "discoveries" of random Pokémon technology and evolutions just don't make any sense and are so shoe horned and unnecessary. I don't need my Pokémon to evolve five times into three different versions of itself with special bracelets and stones and whatever the fuck else. I will admit that I enjoy some of the newer Pokémon, but mostly because their designs are still grounded in reality and look like animals and aren't literally bags of garbage and candelabras. How does Nintendo not get it though their heads that this isn't necessary? Put that energy you use making shitty designs for shitty Pokémon into new features and environments for us to interact with the Pokémon in? And they need to stop coming up with new types as well. It's over saturated. No wonder so many people are turned off to this franchise, it's ridiculously clunky.

I also like XY best! Just like you I cried super hard at the end, I remember bawling all through the credits. I loved dressing up my trainer to match the environment, or sometimes to colour coordinate with my team. The château battle system was awesome, too; I'd spend all day just beating down these rich sons of bitches and taking their money with my amulet coin kek. All to fund my clothes hoarding habit. My favourite pokemon Dedenne is from gen 6, so I am biased for that reason as well. I named mine Plick and she was super cute and strong. I wish I still had the game so I could feed her sweets and pet her in Amie…

I've been thinking about this ever since the national dex cut debacle, that the developers shot themselves in the foot way back in the day when they established the norm of introducing 100+ new pokemon with EVERY single new game released. One of the most retarded choices they make is always introducing some pokemon with shitty stats and bland designs that are clearly filler, when these pokemon will inevitably be cut from the next game now that there are too many.
On the other hand, the new pokemon are probably a huge factor in why people continue to buy the mainline games that literally have the same basic plot and gameplay with minimal improvements in graphics despite it being 2022. Releasing the starter silhouettes every gen builds a lot of hype and is basically easy marketing for the new games. I wonder if Gamefreak could create less new pokemon every generation from now on (say, 25-50), or if fans would start to feel the games are devoid of new content.
Imagine if GF stopped releasing new pokemon after gen 2, or heck if they stopped with the original 151, and focused on improving the gameplay of pokemon instead. Maybe we would have better games now, but imo Pokemon might not be the best selling video game franchise of all time if that were the case.
Honestly I'm curious to see just how long pokemon can keep selling games with the formula they have, it boggles my mind that despite all the complaints there are millions of hardcore fans who keep coming back every few years for a whole lotta nothing.

YO WTF. I thought Gen 8 pokemon looked bad. These are atrocious. They look like bootlegs. Pokemon designs really went down the shitter with that new artist.

I can't pick my absolute favorite main games, its either HeartGold, Black or Moon. Heartgold was my first and had the most heart(ha) put into it with the simple but beautiful graphics and following pokemon made it feel alive, and there was so much to do in these games. I played X a ton as a teen and liked exploring it, but after I finished the game I haven't really touched it. B/W probably have the best plot in the series, but Sun/Moon were really close & I love almost all the characters in those games. Though I consider the absolute best game in the franchise to be Explorers of Sky. Kinda hope they remaster/remake it at some point, but idk I still love the pixel art to this day and I feel like they would screw up the soundtracks too much

No. 180255

My taste aligns with the first poster of this thread perfectly, which stuns me because I've never met anyone else who adores gen II, meowth AND klefki kek.
I honestly really like the older gens because they are a lot faster to play, and I felt like I could come up with stories based on my own imagination with them since they had no plot. When pokemon started getting into the really long animations and cutscenes, it became a slog to play and I pretty much couldn't take it anymore by Black and White. I play the pokemon games on and off still (I played Y and managed to get halfway through Moon) but I just am really meh on the new pokes, the boring gameplay, and the weird shoehorned plot that gets more PG each iteration.
Anyway sorry for the rant, I can't talk about this anywhere because I get mobbed by brainlets who crucify you for saying you didn't like B&W, kek. My favorite gen is of course II, I loved the mafia stuff with team rocket so much.

No. 180265

I was trying to go spoiler free before the release but I'm kind of glad to see the new evolutions because jesus. I may be in the minority in this thread but I ADORE seeing new designs. But agree they need to cut back by a lot. Cut all the filler Pokémon since no one cares anyway. But I do get super excited to see new designs and see the pokedex entries. Gen 8 had Alcremie who I used all through my run of Galar and she really carried my whole game. She's so cute. So I'm confused how they went from designing my favourite Pokémon in Gen 8 to….. this trash. This doesn't even look like the same franchise of creatures. They look so off brand.

No. 180598

I've long stopped enjoying Pokemon years ago and every now and then when I check in to see how things are going it's like a total clusterfuck, so nobody can accuse me of being a hater when I say these designs look like bad fan designs. It's like they took a regular Pokemon and used the liquify tool to shrink/grow some parts then drew a different pattern on it, that purple slime dragon especially so. And some of these have really fucked silhouettes.
Honest question, what is that pink reptilian cloud thing? A Torkoal? And even if she's the least offensive, that Lilligant with no dress on or hair fucking sad, give the girl her leaves back. Dialga and Palkia are like ancient Pokemon 'splice art' I used to make as a kid (it's when you do pixel art with the sprites but combine or recolor them in certain ways that had their own names)
It really looks like those fan designs where people tend to take the base form then make it larger and stick more spikes on it rather than a radical change in shape (think Morgrem -> Grimmsnarl or Kirlia -> Gardevoir)

No. 180621

That's not a torkoal, anon lol thats a genie of all things. A fairy type to go with the Landorus, Thundrus, Tornadus nature trio… because everyone knows the *4 main forces of nature are thunder, ground, wind, and FAIRIES! The torkoal version is its therian form.

No. 180669

I'm guessing it's a fairy type because fairy type is supposed to represent a 'life' typing. Like how Xerneas and the Tapus all have the fairy type. It looks like it has two snake heads which could maybe be part of a caduceus, which to some is a symbol of life and healing. Not excusing the dogshit design but that could be what they were trying to go for.

The game's hideous to look at, so if you're a person who really values graphics then skip it. It's an improvement but honestly nothing special compared to Breath of the Wild, it's really just bootleg Breath of the Wild with Pokemon so it's all about whether that premise is enough for you.

The graphics are shit but honestly? I'm having a great time. But maybe it's just because I'm autistically into Pokémon. But I think Legends is a big step up from Sword/Shield. I like the crafting and openish world. It's just fun. Where you basically sprint through gen 8 since it's linear with little story, this one allows for more adventure. I actually enjoyed Gen 8 overall, though, but it was after not playing any games for several gens so maybe that's why. Shit story but it was nice to be back in the Pokémon world after years since I was big into it as a kid.

There's this thing called the trading card game. I forwent the games for several years but stayed up to date with the cards, mostly. I didn't collect much for x and y but other than that. Not complicated, the franchise is a lot bigger than the games.
I meant Sword and Shield aka the Galar region specifically. I wouldn't consider Legends Gen 8 either…. It's Sinnoh but way in the past and we don't know yet if this will become a running line of games in it's own right. You knew what I meant, though, surely.

No. 184564

Does Legend of Arceus have actual dungeons and puzzles to solve or is it more like BOTW and the Xenoblade games were you explore somewhat empty spaces and hope to find hidden places? Honestly the game doesn't interest me all that much, maybe because I already played Xenoblade 1 and 2 a lot last year and it feels pretty fresh in my head. Plus, I have a copy of BOTW and haven't started that yet but I will soon.

>I wouldn't consider Legends Gen 8 either…
Not her, and I get what you meant but that's not how that works. The RBY remakes are considered gen 3 games, the GSC remakes are considered gen 4 and the RSE are considered gen 6 games, it's not linked to the region but to the national pokedex at the time of release. So by this logic the DPPT remake and Legend of Arceus are part of gen 8.

No. 184569

I mean, yea, I can see how it's all Gen 8 if you consider them all like waves of games grouped together. Which I know lots of people do, I just personally don't. But I'm glad you understood what I meant! I just don't feel like writing out Sword and Shield over and over so I tend to shorten to Gen 8 without care. Some people use SwSh, too.

Also no there are not dungeons, sadly. There are Noble Pokémon in each section of map you unlock that you have to fight and calm down. But unlike mainline games with gym puzzles, there's nothing like that. There's a few puzzles around, like I can think of 1 that's a part of the story that I distinctly remember at the moment. But I'm drawing blanks remembering any other required puzzles. It's mostly you just roaming the different sections of map, battling/catching Pokémon then unlocking the next section with story beats in between. You have to go back to the village in order to change which section of map you are on so you go back there often, it's the hub. Doing requests for people are also a big part of the gameplay but not actually necessary to progress the plot. It just fluffs out gameplay time with stuff to do, tbh. I like it in more of a relaxing game kind of way, something to unwind with - but if you are looking for actual challenges then this is not the game. Which does seem disappointing to most because it's not as grand scale as the whole hype train build up made it out to be. Doesn't mean it's not enjoyable, just not what other fans probably wanted, I can see that.

No. 184587

Yeah, your description of the map(s) reminds me too much of the exploration in Xenoblade games and the DLCs in Sword/Shield, I feel like I'd get sick of it pretty quickly because I played them not that long ago. Maybe I'll be more interested another time though.

By the way, you said here >>184425
>Where you basically sprint through gen 8 since it's linear with little story
That reminds me that I took my time beating Shield and it only took me 24 hours to beat the main game, but I spend like 80 hours trying to complete the pokedex for the main map and the two DLCs.

I do like Legends but HGSS is still better to me. I don't know what it officially is but I consider Legends a side-game, and it actually reminds me of Pokemon Snap in a way since the focus is on how the Pokémon behave.
I hope we get more Legends games. One set in Unova in the past would be interesting to me.
I definitely like how it allows for more adventure. I did rush the story a little to get all the rideable pokemon to make exploration easier though.
The only puzzle I remember was just a memory puzzle in the final area of the game. There's a side quest involving Mr Mime making invisible walls which made me chuckle, but I'm not sure if that's necessarily a puzzle. It's more exploration and catching focused.

Anyway here are three psyducks sleeping (do not be loud or you will wake them up sshh)

Shinies used to be rare encounters, but the way modern Pokemon games are there's almost nothing to do after you beat the main story but shiny hunt. There are some streamers that spend hundreds of hours hunting for shinies and Gamefreak must've took notice bc with each new game they are easier to get. I guess they just want to entice players who want all shiny teams even though making them easier to encounter is essentially devaluing them

No. 185538
