PKMN.NET / Re: What is Mantis?

The site peaked around 2008, since then the world has changed and online communities don't really use these sorts of forums any more. It's a great shame.

Most of us grew up, too. With that comes responsibilities and commitments that come ahead of spending time on sites like this one. Sites like blocked are still going but there's less of a community, and smaller places like this just didn't stay updated which made traffic decline. That said, this community saw me through some tough times as a teenager, so I'll always be thankful that it's still around.

Hi there :)
I wasn´t sure if anybody would reply so thank you for that. :)
Despite the lack of activity I think that it´s neat to just go through all the older discussions and see what other pokemon lovers have to say.

I think it is a real shame that this website isn't as active as it used to be. It could definitely do with a lot of updating.

I agree. I´m new here and I had hoped that the site would be a little more active. It´s still nice to go through older discussions but still - exchanging would be a lot easier if there was more traffic here.

It's not all bad news though, there were definitely some good parts.
Thoughts from everyone else?
I totally agree. I wasn´t too sure about the game when I got it (because of feedback from friends) but I have to say that it´s not totally bad.
Sure, the Pokemon were ok but I didn´t like the story. But then I really liked the Wild Arena like you already said.

So I guess for me the game just didn´t give me what I had hoped for. But I wouldn´t say it was terrible..

I think it is always nice to see someone new on the forum. Despite the lack of activity, I still check frequently to see if anything is going on.

I just wanted to introduce myself really quick. I´m Anna, 29 years old and from Germany. I realized that this site is not the most active one, but i still hope to get to know a few people and to exchange some ideas and stuff :)

For me its the red and blue. I grew up with those so I guess I´m kind of attached to them. Those were actually the first games I got for my gameboy. Sure, the graphics suck but they remind me of my childhood so i have to say that those are my favourite.

It isn't in the vanilla game but with the Isle of Armor DLC, you can indeed get a dynamax Wailord now!

 So, I sat down and played the game again to jog my memory and the game's honestly okay. The Pokemon have grown on me and although the game didn't live up to my expectations, I've come to appreciate what it is.

 It just feels like the game could have been better for a Nintendo Switch game.
I'm only going for "Shiny Charm" requirements, so the events aren't needed.

I see what you mean when you said about the picture quality the other day.

Not the best!

Edit: I've stumbled across another idea. My Gamecube/Gameboy Player and this on my pc. Many of the reviews say that it doesn't work with Windows 10, but that's where my 12 year old Windows 7 laptop can come into play!

OBS Studio (which I planned to use with the usb capture card) doesn't work on my old laptop and Windows 7. No surprise there then!
