Games General / New Gen 7 Starters
« on: May 16, 2016, 06:00 »
It looks like the Alola region's starters are Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio.

People think Popplio on the right looks silly, but aside from the fact that its face looks a little like Oshawott's I don't see a problem with the Pokemon. I would have gone with Litten in the middle, but since my friend is getting that one I'll choose Popplio. Which one will you choose?

General Pokémon Discussion / Least favorite pokemon
« on: April 15, 2016, 03:50 »
My least favorite Pokémon are Blaziken, Manectric, Lucario, Gyarados, and Regice. I think Blaziken is silly because it's a flaming chicken, which is like a chicken cooking itself. I don't know how Game Freak made that look cool. Since most people I know choose the Fire starter, I feel that the Water and Grass starters are overshadowed and tend to like them better than the Fire starter in general.

Manectric and Lucario aren't my favorite because I feel that they were designed to look cool. As soon as I saw them I knew everyone would have one. I don't like Gyarados that much because I can't unsee its Gen 3 sprite. Regice has one of the most intimidating cries in the game alongside Giratina, looks a lot bulkier and less like a human and more like a killing machine than the other two Regis. The suspenseful theme music didn't help

What are yours?

TV and Movies / Favorite Anime Series to Watch
« on: March 28, 2016, 02:00 »
What are some of your favorite anime series that you've watched, Pokemon and beyond? I really enjoyed Great Teacher Onizuka, Blue Exorcist, Kanon, Black Lagoon, Black Cat, and School Rumble. Those are a few really nice ones in my opinion

I'm always looking for some good shows to check out.

I was looking at the move Me First today, which I had always thought was introduced in Gen 5, and realized that it came in the 4th Gen. This may be because I associate Me First with After You, which is a Gen 5 move for sure. The same happened with Rock Wrecker, which was apparently Rhyperior's signature move in Gen 4. I had only seen Gen 5 Pokemon such as Crustle and Conkeldurr use it

As for abilities I always thought that Adaptability was Gen 5 but I guess not. The same goes for Leaf Guard. Which abilities or moves did you think were introduced later than they actually were?

ORAS is the first game I completed in a long time and I still play it pretty often. I picked up on some small glitches along the way when I was playing through these remakes. One of them was at one of the Move Tutor huts at the Battle Resort

I was trying to get rid of Spiky Shield and teach Thunder Punch to my Cacturne. At the last minute I decided against deleting the move, and the message that followed read "Spiky Shield could not learn Thunder Punch!"

Do you remember any bugs or glitches you've noticed in the games?

Random Randomness / Things you wish you were better at
« on: February 24, 2016, 23:56 »
I wish I were better at drawing manga. The foreign art style always fascinated me but I could never really draw it so well. I try sometimes but my work isn't quite as refined as the real thing

How about you?

Role Play / Re: Role Play Rush.
« on: February 21, 2016, 10:06 »
I was looking through the boards and found a topic called Role Play Rush.
I really like the idea and I want to see if we can bring it back. The first post of the original topic explains the concept of Role Play Rush in detail:

Basically, this is a game we can play alongside our current RPs, it's a bit of a project but I thought this was a good idea.

The idea is this: One person will give a scenario for an RP. It can be simple, describe the situation or idea in 25 words or less and after that the RP is open. As many people can join each RP as they want and everyone's forms are really simplified. There will be 15 posts on each RP and the last person to post in that RP gets to make a new idea.

Does that make sense to you?

It will look something like this:
Person 1: My idea is _____________________
Here are additional fields that need to be added to the form: I'm putting out a standard form that will be used across all the RPs on this thread
Here is my form:
Here is the first post:
Person 2:
Here is my form:
Here is my post:
Other people may join for the whole RP and it carries on for 15 posts (1 page)
The 15th post should look like this:
Person 2:
[final post on old RP]
The new idea is this _________________
Additional form fields:
My Form:
First Post:
Your RP idea can be garishly simple or rather complicated. As long as you can describe it in 25 words then it's valid.

Normal RP rules apply so no:
Material for an age rating over PG13
Power playing

If these rules aren't obeyed, you will be asked not to post on the thread again.

All forms are assumed accepted unless I say otherwise.

Here is the standard form:
Code: [Select]
Personality: (try to do this in about 10 words.)
Appearance: (try to do this in about 10 words.)

This is something we can do while the last couple of forms for the orb RP come in and while it's running too. This topic can generate new RP's if the ideas are good. Shouts go out to Wolstenholme for coming up with this

The idea is this: Police are following someone who is driving a car that has recently been reported stolen. Little do they know, she is a criminal who is in possession of stolen artifacts.

Additional form fields: Occupation

My Form:

Name: Alex Doherty
Age: 22
Gender: Female
Personality: Clever, enjoys outsmarting those who get in her way, breaking the law gives her a sense of freedom.
Appearance: 5'8", long brown hair, blue eyes, wears a black catsuit, ski cap, gloves.
Occupation: Thief

First post:

Alex was tempted to stick her head out the window and shout You'll never catch me alive! at the cops who were on her tail. But her adventurous spirit was disturbed by the possibility that the police were already on to her. Had they so quickly figured out that she had stolen the charm from the museum? Alex thought that she had skillfully carried out the theft. She had waited in the bathroom stall with a gas mask on, ready to use a bottle of disinfectant spray filled with a gas powerful enough to knock someone out instantly. And when the curator waltzed in, satisfied with the most recent item he had added to his collection, she sprayed him. He would wake up thinking he had just dozed off. Alex took the man's keys and open a display case that contained the museum's most recent item. It was a heavy necklace made up of large, spherical, reflective orange beads that had a red spiral-cloud pattern. Alex replaced the item with a cheaper-looking replica and placed the real thing in the trunk. All of it was hardly a pleasant experience. After all her planning and careful action, Alex couldn't believe that she could possibly be found out so quickly. She didn't know what the cops actually wanted from her, but her instinct was to speed away.

X and Y/OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire / Hoopa Unbound
« on: December 25, 2014, 04:39 »
Diancie, Hoopa and Volcanion

Diancie's long been around, but what about the other two?

Most of you probably already know about this, but there's no been no topic about it yet and it sounds pretty interesting. So apparently Hoopa (an unreleased Pokemon found in the code of X and Y) triggers an event in ORAS that lets it transform into "Hoopa Unbound." Hoopa was coded in since X and Y, but now that they further developed the Pokemon by giving it an in-game event, I predict that it'll be officially announced and distributed for ORAS. So far Hoopa is a hacker-only Pokemon. Nothing on Volcanion so far. Read more about all this here

Wireless Activities / Evolving Graveler in OR
« on: December 01, 2014, 04:11 »
Basically what the title says. My Geodude just evolved into Graveler, which I want to evolve into Golem. If anyone is willing to do a tradeback, I really appreciate it! If anyone has the same thing going on, if you have a Machoke, Kadabra, or Graveler you'd like to evolve, then we can even kill two Taillows with one stone.

Gaming / Smash Bros. Records
« on: November 23, 2014, 06:26 »
I've set a few records in Home Run Contest recently (before I got Omega Ruby, of course.) Do you guys have any records you've set in Target Blast, Home Run Contest, Multi-Man Smash, etc.? My current record in Home Run Contest with Ganondorf is 4497.3 ft.

Random Randomness / How would you describe yourself?
« on: October 04, 2014, 05:39 »
The title says it all. Does it differ from how most people would describe you? Are you trying to be someone you're not? What should people expect from you? Likes and dislikes? Personality traits? Anything that you feel defines you.

Well, how would I describe myself?

1) I tend to stay within my limits. I don't often discuss things that I don't know very much about, whereas I can have long and heated discussions about things I'm well-versed on.
2) I enjoy transforming meaningless words into deep analyses. So naturally, I love to read and write!
3) I work hard by nature, but I tend to overwork myself. And when I overwork myself, I'm very cynical about the priority of work. Lots of people have told me that your health is more important than work, so I shouldn't be staying up past midnight. But that's a statement that people contradict, since people feel compelled to stay up late and overwork themselves anyway.
4) I'm very cautious, almost to a paranoid level.
5) Very imaginative. I always find myself imagining a totally different world with characters in it.

That pretty much sums me up.

Say Hello! / Belated "Hello!"
« on: September 07, 2014, 05:09 »
I'm new here but I didn't think of making a Say Hello topic until I read the 'General Welcome to the Forums' thread. So I thought "why not introduce myself?" I've kind of been lurking a lot and exploring the forums. I've been enjoying most of the things here especially the Caption Contest (which I've been spamming lately) and Name Rater (which is how I got here).

While I was lurking I found the rules. Pretty easy to follow and a lot less complicated compared to most of the forums I visited, so I think I'll have fun here

Older Main Games / Some EV Questions in Pokemon Emerald
« on: August 23, 2014, 04:36 »
So I've gotten back into playing Pokemon Emerald and I'm training up a team to beat the Battle Frontier. EV training is going well, but I have a few questions.

1) I was training my Beldum's Defense stat by defeating Cascoon. With the Macho Brace, that training amounted to 404 EV's. My question is, if I keep training a stat even after it has the maximum 255 EV's, am I wasting EV's out of the total 510 I can gain, or am I just doing nothing?

2) Now, I have 255 EV's in my Beldum's Attack and Defense stats. Does that mean that, now that I've completed my EV training, I can battle any Pokemon I want for regular EXP? Will I still get my +63 stat points if I do? Or do I have to keep defeating Cascoon and Poochyena till Beldum (Metagross) is lvl 100.
