Title: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y

Pokemon X & Y (with I guess "Z" later on)

Normally, I don't care about the series.  But I don't deny the love I had for it as a kid, and the fact that I love its concept.  But, I'm making a topic because the series is finally growing up a bit -- Pokemon XY is a FULL 3D game (that's right! No more four-directional walking!!!!!!!!!)

I'm curious.  The starters look pretty cool, and it's a worldwide release in October, 2013 (with maybe a delay announcement though haha).  I know we're all not crazy about the series -- but we've made topics for far more niche series'.

I like Fennekin the most (cute pun), but I can already see, being the most badass looking, everyone's gonna pick him.  I like the Grass type one, Chisnut or Chesnip or whatever.

Just hoping that unlike black and white, pokemon from previous generations get evolutions. Maybe pinsir will finally get an evolution. I'm actually curious what the water type will turn into and will probably pick that.

Eh; almost interested. Will keep an eye out for the new pokes anyway as time goes on. I wish the series were a little more adaptive though. What's funny is considering it's '6th Generation' Pokemon still pales in comparison (in terms of 'surface depth) to it's old rival, Digimon's, '2nd Generation'; despite the huge gap in time and tech. (I don't count the IV/EV system as 'depth'; in fact I see the series greatest weakness as there's no such thing as 'casual PVP' anymore. You either spent weeks RNGing the right stats or you just go play a rigged crane game at a shady Vegas arcade; same odds of winning.)

I.E: Digimon 2 had a very basic 'breeding' system. Allowing you to fuse your evolved monsters to get a new one to start over with; allowing you to pass on moves that the creature might not otherwise obtain and utilizing it to make certain evolutions unlockable only through repeated breeding.

It was crude and primitive but someone at Nintendo should've long grabbed that ball and ran with it. Breeding in Pokemon only means grabbing a Ditto and spaming the Daycare for shineys, IV farming, or Eevee cloning; such a wasted mechanic. If they adapted and enhanced the Digimon mechanic it would add a nice layer of depth and give you reason to actually cultivate your little army other than for OHKOing NPCs.

Well, they reworked how EXP is calculated as well, it's not as grindy as it used to be. The main game frankly requires hardly any grinding to win, unless you are just getting a new pokemon up to the level of your team.


You also get the Lucky Egg item pretty early now as well, which doubles EXP gained.

You can turn off battle animations. You will literally miss the battles if you blink.

The problem is that after the game boy installments sometimes they had the text crawl slower or had this weird delay after a line finishes, so even turning the animations off felt longer. I don't think BW was a exception to this.

This is looking really good. I'm excited. I heard predictions of a full 3D Pokemon in the main series after people saw the 3D pokedex floating around, glad to see it becoming a reality.

I think BW is an exception to that, actually. Not entirely sure, though, but looking at a video it does seem a heck of a lot faster. I'd pull out my copy, but then I'd have to dig out my DS...

Turn animations off and battles go pretty fast in BW. If I recall correctly, the problem with the slow text started in Gen 3 and carried on until Gen 5 fixed it.

sooooo now for the obligatory question.... if I were to entertain the idea of giving these games a shot where should i start..??? So many colors to choose from.... should I even bother playing any of the last installments or just wait for this?

Too early to say if this one will be worth it. I think Pokemon Black/White or HeartGold/SoulSilver are the best to start with. Black/White eases you into the game and is the least grindy. It also has only 150 pokemon to collect in the beginning. HG/SS is the best Pokemon game in general, with the most replay value.

I'm really excited for this game, having played each generation more than once. They finally gave us what we wanted: a full 3D pokemon game. i just really hope its worth the 10 years I've been looking forward to something like this. If it's all one big gimmick, and the actually game isn't as good, I'll be very sad.

There is.

Dark/Psychic/Fighting

Except, in the grandeur of things, Dark would be the most appropriate over both because of its negation to Psychic moves.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Darilon on May 27, 2013, 01:04:31 AM
I wouldn't mind if they kept Fire/Water/Grass so much if they just added a second type that countered the firsts weakness.

Fire/Dark, Water/Psychic and Grass/Fighting.

Who am I kidding. It would obviously be
Fire/Fighting, Water/Dark and Grass/Psychic
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Dincrest on May 27, 2013, 08:19:45 AM
I hope Fennekin isn't fire/fighting.  They've done that too many times already with Torchic, Chimchar, and Tepig.  The rumors flying around the web suggest that Fennekin will be fire/psychic, though my speculation is fire/normal like other "fire dog/fox" pokemon like Growlithe or Vulpix. 

Some rumors suggest Froakie will be water/fighting, but I speculate water/ice since his white wisps look like snow clouds on high mountains, "fro" is half of frozen, and there are frogs like the Alaskan wood frog who can freeze themselves into hibernation and generally survive winter climates. 

Chespin's rumored to be grass/dark, but I speculate grass/fighting because of those slashing claws.

-5 vs. 1 "Horde" Encounters
-Flying type exclusive "Sky battles"
-Much better looking new Pokemon than the last two generations (imo)
-Improved global Player Search System.
-More info on global release (7 languages, very challenging, blah blah blah)

Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Hathen on June 12, 2013, 02:58:36 AM
Well they never bothered retconning Gyarados into a dragon type for whatever reason (or Charizard), so not like that's the only weird thing across the ~700 pokemon that exist.

I'm excited for this one. I haven't looked forward to a Pokemon game this much since Gold/Silver.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Zalrus9 on June 17, 2013, 05:47:32 PM
What do you all think of the new Fairy Type? Is this a good paradigm shift, or too little too late?

That said, I'm probably going to get it and Nuzlocke it, naming all of my characters after playwrights.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Tooker on June 17, 2013, 05:58:51 PM
I didn't really feel like we needed more than the first set of types... but things still have never been quite balanced.  Depending on how this one plays out, I could see it adding that last bit of change that we needed.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Hathen on June 18, 2013, 07:38:54 AM
It's true that the dragon type is pretty broken. It has, what, 2 weaknesses, and I think a single type that's resistant? I don't really mind, I'd rather they add new things to the core game (battles) rather than adding new things like Pokemon contests.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Dincrest on June 18, 2013, 05:14:03 PM
With fairy types to balance out dragon types... It's kinda like learning the art of balance as we go along.  Like in gen 1, psychic types were unbalanced, so steel and dark types were introduced in gen 2.  Of course, dark became quite powerful (it was possible to get through a healthy portion of Gold/Silver/Crystal with Totodile/Croconaw alone since bite was retconned as a dark move and was effective against a lot of things.)  

And that's not even getting into the whole realm of dual-types.  Sure, a powerhouse like fire/dark is possible but you also have magcargo- a fire/rock type that's doubly vulnerable to water making for a big but puny opponent.

It's kinda like how rock-paper-scissor evolved to rock-paper-scissor-lizard-Spock.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Starmongoose on June 18, 2013, 05:22:18 PM
From the same source who leaked information about Fairy-type and Sky Battles, they also mentioned that Gen 6 would contain Dual-type attack moves.

For example Thunder Punch would be a Fighting-type move that does Electric-type damage. So Hitmonchan would get a STAB-boost from Thunder Punch, but Electabuzz wouldn't.

Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Starmongoose on June 18, 2013, 05:46:08 PM
I think people said that during the Gen 4 Special/Physical development too. :P

As long as its clear what move does what, I don't see it being a problem. I like the added depth and potential for new moves. Something like


Thunder Punch
Type: Fighting
Damage: Electric
Power: 70 (I didn't check what the actual power is)
Explanation: It is a punch of thunder.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y

You're probably right.  And the special/physical change was a great one.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Zalrus9 on June 18, 2013, 07:25:42 PM
Now, I've also noticed that the Fighting Type has been slowly getting a little bit of a power creep, right? Is Fairy going to help with that as well?
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Starmongoose on June 18, 2013, 07:34:58 PM
Rumor (and only rumor) says Fairy is strong vs Dragon, Dark and Fighting-type.

Which itself makes for a very offensive typing.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Hathen on June 18, 2013, 07:38:17 PM
I usually take developers that talk about "balance" with a grain of salt. Pokemon has never been particularly well-balanced. The only thing they need to avoid is having something be a ruiner of worlds (ie Mewtwo and first gen). Is Dunsparce, Parasect or Purugly "balanced" in the game? Not really. With RPGs like this generally all the dev has to do is introduce a system that is suitably complicated, throw in a lot of variables and the player will create tier lists of their own.

Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Dincrest on June 18, 2013, 07:45:19 PM
So the going theory is that the addition to "bring balance to the force" adds a little bit of unbalancing so that something else needs to be added later on to rebalance it?  Kinda like how we take meds for a condition then need to take other meds to counteract the side effects, thus making us chemically dependent on prescriptions? 

Considering how addicted we are to Pokemon (and RPGs in general) I would buy this theory.

Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Starmongoose on June 18, 2013, 08:36:11 PM
It would be strong against flying because Flying is weak to Electric and the move does Electric damage.

I don't think this is difficult at all.

Post by: Hathen on June 18, 2013, 11:30:22 PM
It's not hard to figure out, but every time they do something like that they kill a bunch of builds the same time they intend to introduce a lot of new ones.

EX: When they split physical and special Sceptile got its Leaf Blade build hit hard because it has high special attack.

It's probably worse in this case because the physical/special split was splitting into two different types whereas this time they're making two different properties split between 19 types, meaning moves can have up to 361 different combinations of properties. Combining with that that only a handful of moves are actually useful, the system would only add a lot of interesting aspects to gameplay if they plan on adding thousands of new attacks, which probably won't happen.

Though I guess the other option is to make said kinds of attacks very sparse so that they are only viable for special builds of Pokemon.

original pokemans came out in 1996, I think the fanbase has aged with the series and I actually don't know how popular it is with the really young kids over here now. Also, really feeling the new mon designs and promo code to preorder them on newegg for $33, life is good.

I'm actually really liking the designs so far, anything I find weird is in a good way. They usually show all the ones they're most proud of in magazines and such, though. I think G5 was my least favorite as far as designs go.

Pokemon is not getting more ridiculous. Pokemon has ALWAYS been ridiculous.

How is Grimer any less disgusting than Garbador, at least Trubbish is cute. Grimer just evolves from a small pile of shit and slime to a bigger pile of shit and slime. At least Garbador has a structure too him.

Also let's not forget Jynx, the Golliwog Pokemon.

I really, really think these Pokemon designs are fantastic. Especially Squidwin. I think the Cotton Candy pokemon looks adorable too.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Dincrest on July 11, 2013, 05:48:14 PM
I never said the ridculous designs were bad.  I think that's why I'm digging it more now, because it's just fearless creativity and fearless creativity is often polarizing.  Look at the gen 5 starters.  Oshawott was the dorkiest looking starter pokemon ever, but he evolved into quite the badass. 

I've said this before, but I hope the gen 6 starters are as cool as their potential seems to indicate.  Let's think about the starters.  I haven't played all the Pokemon games, but this is what a good portion of people on ze Intarwebnet seem to think.  Like if there was a bell curve to Pokemon preferences, these would likely be in the big middle of the bell. 

gen 1: Bulbasaur/Charmander/Squirtle- the benchmark set of starters.  They all have solid stats and great evolutions.  Charizard is teh awesome.   

gen 2: Chikorita/Cyndaquil/Totodile- definitely a step down.  None were as good as their first-gen counterparts whether starting or evolved.  Few people seem to have good things to say about Chikorita.  Totodile and Cyndaquil are alright, but not as good as Charmander or Squirtle. 

gen 3: Treecko/Torchic/Mudkip- vast improvement.  Mudkip and its evolutions are considered among the best water starters and Treecko (and its evolutions) are considered among the best grass types.  Torchic evolving into a fire/fighting type was cool.

gen 4: Turtwig/Chimchar/Piplup- solid lineup.  It's been often said that Turtwig is the best grass type starter ever, because Torterra is an absolute beast.  Piplup evolving into a water/steel type is a big plus too.  Chimchar was no slouch either. 

gen 5: Snivy/Tepig/Oshawott- from what I've been reading, these guys seem like a step down.  Snivy and its evolutions look cool, but don't seem to have the stats to back it up.  Grass aficionados favor Turtwig, Treecko, and Bulbasaur a lot more.  Tepig's evolutions are fugly and really?  ANOTHER fire/fighting type, and reportedly not as good as Chimchar or Torchic?  Oshawott has cool evolutions, but would water aficionados choose him over Mudkip, Piplup, or Squirtle?         

gen 6: Chespin/Fennekin/Froakie- here's hoping that Chespin is a good grass starter on par with Treecko or Turtwig.  Grass needs someone who kicks ass.  For Fennekin, I'm hoping it's NOT another fire/fighting type.  That would be ridiculous in a bad way.  I'm thinking Froakie will be like Oshawott- the starter that most people think is "dorky looking" but becomes quite the badass. 
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Klutz64 on July 11, 2013, 08:22:30 PM
I think Froakie is just as, if not more, adorable as Fenekin. Seriously, I think Fenekin is getting too much love. We already got "cute fire fox" in the form of Vulpix.

Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Jotacon on July 12, 2013, 02:39:48 AM
I hope so. He should be Dark/Bug as an opposite to Scizor. Yup, the least creative thing you've ever heard. They'd better! Or Fairy/Bug that would be hilarious.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Starmongoose on July 12, 2013, 04:17:43 AM
It's unlikely Pinsir will ever get an evolution, I'm not saying impossible, just unlikely.

His base stat total is 500, and all Pokemon with that stat total are already fully evolved Pokemon, Gengar, Ampharos, Donphan, Wailord.

An evolution would put him in Legendary territory stat-wise.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Jotacon on July 12, 2013, 04:32:54 AM
Scizor and Scyther both share a 500 base stat total, I imagine the stats would be shifted around to accommodate whatever role/flavour they want to give it the exact same way.

And the real shame is Farfetch'd doesn't have an evolution.

I mean he's the counterpart to scyther, him not getting an evo while scyther did is like making electavire and not magmortar(they both look kinda funky though). And oh man ampharos, mareep is like the only electric type you get for a good while in that gen so I used it for most of the game.

Starter evolves...

oh man.... they're kinda...really ugly.  Fenekin seems to evolve to get an ear parasite and a genetic stick in its tail, and Chespin's evolution is slowly turning it into a ball.  Froake looks alright, if not the tamest design of the bunch (and it worked).

Alt MewTwo is now a Megaman boss.

Not gonna look.  I wanna be surprised when the game comes out and I play it.  But it sounds like once again, the dorky looking one gets the most tasteful evolutions.  Look at gen 5.  Oshawott was a dorky looking creampuff, but its evolutions looked better than Snivy's and Tepig's.  Tepig's were fugly. 

EDIT: This guy's hypothetical evolutions were my favorite, though.  Here's his Froakie: http://forrestanthony.deviantart.com/art/Froakie-Evolution-Chart-347418045

That's applying Gen V mechanics to a Gen VI game. Garchomp can't just Outrage a team because Fairy-type are completely immune to dragon and thus it would pretty much have to switch out.

If you don't want to be spoiled, do not hunt down your typical Pokémon boards and other similar places. It's time to avoid the game now ahead of the release date.

New Mega-Ultra Pokemon Charizard looks badass.

I wonder how they're keeping track of all these Pokemen.  They gonna end up doing super evolutions for all of them?  Is it gonna fuck up tournaments (or will there be 'new rules' to limit them)?  Kinda sucks if one Pokemon has it and others don't I guess.

Ah well...

Hmn... it's interesting but not exactly aesthetically pleasing. It seems like it'll be a Fire/Psychic (maybe Fire/Fairy?), which makes it fairly unique and a complete reversal of the Fire/Fighting types we've had for the last 3 generations.

I have to say that I'm really digging the music. The soundtrack isn't something one normally cares about in a Pokemon game but I liked the soundtrack from the first game the most out of the entire series. X and Y's trainer music is really good though, and they seem to be doing an old school feel with new school style with the game, and I really like it. If they can pull off the gym battle music without making it sound dull (which has been the case since Red/Blue/Yelow IMO), this might be my favorite entry yet.

Hmm seems that Nintendo is cracking down hard on the people who got the game early. Tried looking up the early release screenshots, but I saw nothing on Fennekin's final evolved form. Well I saw an image that was supposed to have artwork for it that was supposedly leaked, but the consensus on the comments seemed to indicate that it was a fake.

I have to say though that Pokémon X seems to be getting the better looking Mega evolutions. That is really tempting me to get X over Y, but I always go for the "red" version. Decisions decisions.

Looks to me like there probably are more for two reasons. 1. I don't believe for a second that Charizard is the only former starter who gets two Mega forms. 2. I don't see a new Mew/Celebi/w/e came afterwards type pokemon in there to be the top secret cute type.

So far it appears that list is correct, the 69 new pokemon (there's 2 repeats on that list) are the only known ones right now, the only possible extra ones are maybe event ones like the Mew-type for this generation like you mentioned, but even if there are some of those to come that's a really small number of new Pokemon.

I don't really mind though, none of the new designs really annoy me when there's been a lot of those the last few generations.

"Shared EXP."  After your first gym battle, you get this item that gives every pokemon in your party EXP regardless of whether they directly fought in a battle or not.  Makes things less grindy.  And till Jan 14, you can get a free Torchic (with Blaziken megastone) which is a pretty nice bonus.  But, really, the "Shared EXP" feature is the cat's pyjamas.   

I haven't played a Pokemon since Crystal and I'm hooked like a prize trout. 
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Tooker on October 13, 2013, 05:45:25 PM
I'd recommend it, Bleaker.  They have tweaked a lot of little things to make life better for players.  As Dincrest said, big change to the EXP Share item (which now just sits in your inventory instead of having to be held).  Also, you start the game with running shoes and get roller skates very shortly after leaving home. 

But there are other things too - for example, Tackle is a 50 power move now instead of 35.  String Shot lowers speed "harshly."  And they've organized the wild pokemon so that by the time you hit the second town, you can have normal, flying, fire, water, grass, bug/poison, electric, and normal/fairy types in your crew.  So you don't get stuck rolling around with one starter and a bunch of normals for a few towns any more.  Lots of stuff.  This is a really big update to the series.

Great. I'll go buy Y tomorrow. This is going to be very shallow, but as a person who hasn't played Pokemon in forever, I am now judging my purchase of each version based on the fact that I like the color Red more than Blue.

Some may consider that a spoiler... but yeah.

I picked Y over X for a similar reason - decided the guy on the cover was cooler.  Also, lots of people were getting X, because they liked one or two of the mega evolutions that were exclusive to it more than the ones exclusive to Y.

The box/retail version of the game has an insert that says how to get the free Torchic.  I was already committed to Team Froakie anyway, but I think that insert might have swayed some people away from Fennekin.  Froakie, Torchic, and that's why I

chose Bulbasaur after the Sycamore battle.  Such riches aplenty so early on.  Even without these bonuses, it's pretty easy to get a balanced team before even the first gym battle.  

The only "new" pokemon I'm using a lot is Flabebe, because it's a fairy type, but I hope I can find a fairy type that doesn't have grass moves since I also have a Budew I'm raising because I really want a Roserade.

This is one of those games where it's all the little things that really add up.  Even something simple like dialogue.  I chose a girl trainer and I like that NPCs talk to me as if I'm a girl.  I remember RPGs, even recent ones, where I would create a girl character and the characters would still talk to me as if I were a guy.  Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology did that.  One mission was where I had to spar with Stahn because he didn't want to spar with Rutee because she was a girl and he didn't like to hit girls.  I looked at the screen dumbfounded and was all like, "Dude, *I* AM a girl!"  On the opposite end was Fate/Extra where my female familiar started talking to me in a flirty manner and I was about to shout "cop out!" when one of the dialogue choices read, "You realize I'm a girl, right?"   

Wonder trades are fun too. 

I'm having too much fun with this.

In one satirical picture, this what's wrong with the "current fedora trend":
(http://i.imgur.com/XOA5pQq.png)
Fedoras are, to say the LEAST, "not in", or "in" but with the wrong crowd who kinda match it terribly with other ill-fitting or clashing fashion choices (fedora + trenchcoat + neck beard)....and some personal choices that are just kinda...'icky', it's kind of a raunchy nerd sub-group otherwise.

It's sort of the current version of how "emo fashion" (and people) were just generally given the stink-eye to for both their fashion choices...and, well aspects of their "generalized" personalities (whether true or not).

I think the emo thing was a better example because its more mocking a sub-culture for their generalized personas and "uncool" fashion.
Mongoosey said it well.  Their attempts to 'stick out' fashionably (with fancy fedora?) has kinda backfired.

And also, limit talking about specific gender stuffs.  It's also icky.

Nuts to the fashion police.  I got kicked out of a store in Pokemon Y for not being stylish enough.  Well poo to those uppity snobs!  My Cresta is adorable (yeah, I play as a female trainer named Cresta.)  

Funny story at work today (kind about fashion.)  I was in a pokemon conversation with a couple of students in a class I assist in (I work at a high school), and this girl almost freaked because she was frustrated that she didn't get Pokemon yet and didn't want to be spoiled.  She then even said she might return a dress she recently bought (dunno if it was a homecoming dress since that's this week) just so she could get Pokemon.  How crazy is that?  Even when she said, "How sad is that?" regarding the dress, everyone in the class said, "do it.  Pokemon's worth it."  Even a dude on the football team encouraged the "ditch the dress and pick up Pokemon" sentiment.  (Bear in mind, this is a cool, artsy, semi-popular, and nice-looking teenage girl who you wouldn't think was a Pokemon trainer upon first glance.)  

So far, most of the students I spoke with either chose Froakie or commented that "everyone's choosing Froakie!"  Although in another class I assist in (a computer tech/ web design class) a young lady picked Chespin.  Not seeing a lot of Fennekin love.

On a lighter note, this is the first time I'm playing a Pokemon game and having no idea what to expect from the dungeons/gyms/etc., so I'm having way more fun with this game than any previous entry. In fact, this goes beyond my Red/Blue experience simply because it's like getting Pokemon for the very first time, and not knowing which Pokemon are the best battlers.

I said the picture was satirical.  I posted it because it summed up the "common nuances" of what you asked.
I've always shrugged on fashion comments.  I do think expressing yourself is important, but all the same wearing something that "fits" is just a "good idea" (for instance, I wouldn't go to a job interview in "slut wear" even if it was at aims to express myself).
Anyways, the joke with "Fedora Fashion" is because it started almost as an attempt for somewhat nerdy fellas to "look cool" but has since backfired on the intended purpose and invited in a lot of room for caricature (again, see how the emo trend panned out). 

I realize that "fashion" and "conformity" is a lengthy issue anyways; but I'm here to explain than debate. 

And if a running gag to the "fedora-wearing stereotype" is their inability to get girlfriends, I'm sure a nice fitting shirt would work better than wearing an outdated hat and trenchcoat (the same way I wouldn't wear overalls in this age to look appealing).

But hey, the early 2000s saw PONCHOS in style, so what the fuck can anyone say about fashion, but I do think the "expressing yourself" comment can only get you so far.

Man, the age we live in where adults can talk games with high schoolers.  Yaaay!  I've actually noticed the "you waste your time on video games" comment being spoken less and less.  I tend to spread myself thin between games and fashion and have little disposable income to show because for it. ;___;

I second Annubis and Ashton on this one.  (And I suspect that others of you do as well, and were simply trying to explain the in-game fedora joke.)

I just want to take this opportunity to say that I am an avid hat-wearer and have been for years.  And I look good in most hats, including fedoras.  Know how I know?  Because attractive, stylish people often tell me so.  I think it's the shape of my face and head, because that really affects how you look in different hats.  For example, I look like a moron in a cowboy hat. :)

My Uncle Sam gave me a trenchcoat one time (which I mention because the military made sure it fit me correctly), and I've been complimented on it a time or two as well, but I try to wear it under appropriate circumstances.  Like it's winter and I'm wearing a suit on my way to a funeral, or I'm walking through Manhattan in a shirt and tie on my way to work.  They just don't look good with everything.  Which is fine, because there are plenty of other kinds of jackets that work in other situations.


Also, I am really enjoying this Pokemon game.  I'm glad I took a game off with Black & White 2.  Does anyone know if the Amie system affects when Pokemon evolve who require friendship for evolution?  I'd really like Riolu to evolve, so I've been spending time petting him and playing games with him.

I won't deny that I've bundle up in enough layers till I'm a goddamn sphere if the weather is cold enough.  And I'll wear that XL shirt when I'm having a "cozy day".

I can't answer
I think that's why my pokemon interest fades in and out.  I don't really get much enjoyment in the "raising" aspect.  Or I'm no good at it (probably that).  I've been having fun anyways and this is definitely a mighty large step for the series.  I have no real idea what Amie is but I'm enjoying it anyways.

Also a big plus to the EXP share for making me "less nervous" about taking time with certain Pokemon to see if I like them.  It shaves a lot of time from individual swapping and training.

The whole fedora thing is just another one of those internet meme assaults that make people think that something is a lot more prevalent than it actually is. Yes, there's a lot of nerds that wear a fedora when they really shouldn't be, but it's not much more prevalent then any other piece of clothing and it just seems that way to you because of actual nerds who constantly blow it out of proportion so you tend to notice it when it happens more.

It's been associated with various groups (nerds, hipsters, emos, atheists etc) and it went from being a joke to just another way for stupid people to misdirect a discussion with ad hominem attacks.

Am I the only one who still thinks of Indiana Jones when I hear fedora?

Anyway. Just got done with the second Gym. The gyms are a lot more creative this time around. They are straightforward so far, but they each have more of a cool asthetic too it.

I'm also regretting grabbing Fennekin. I love it, its just that I should have picked a grass type for the first one, seeing as I can get a free fire type from that mystery gift, and then a water type later on. Really enjoying the game though. I do not like the huge time gap between gym 1 and 2 though. Gym battles are always the progression chart for me, and if I don't fight one in a long time, I don't feel like I'm making any progress. Anyone else feel that?

The bad news is that it gives everyone whatever name they've chosen for their character in the game.  So you may or may not actually know who your friends are. :D

For example, I freaked RPGFan's own Kyle Miller out last night by starting up a voice chat with him and asking if he'd do a trade.  He didn't know that I almost always name my game characters Jonas.

So perhaps I should note then that my avatar in Pokemon Y is a female trainer named Cresta.  

And it's amusing that in Grieg's game I open up the Bug Safari, especially since in the last Pokemon game I played, my unexpected MVP/favorite was a bug type. 

EDIT: And for anyone (Grieg?) who's a Flabebe-line fanatic, answer me two simple yes/no questions: Do these Pokemon eventually learn more fairy type moves than just Fairy Wind?  And if not, is there a fairy gym so I can give Floette a second fairy move to supplement its grass moves? 

Don't get me wrong, I love Fairy Wind, but my Floette is top-heavy with grass moves (which are equally awesome) but I want another fairy move to balance it.  It's like, I have this really great grass Pokemon (
Code: [Select]
Ivysaur) but I almost never want to use it because Floette has better grass moves and none of the grass-types weaknesses. 



Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Starmongoose on October 17, 2013, 05:29:23 PM
There is a TM you get from
Code: [Select]
The Fairy Gym that will teach you a stronger Fairy-type move. :) Also make sure to pick up a Shiny Stone at
Code: [Select]
The Gogoat Ranch to evolve your Floette. :D

Also the way I understand it, you will be a Bug-type Safari in EVERYONE's game, Neal. You actually have wild Butterfree and Beutifly in your Safari Zone, which is cool because you can't catch Beutifly in the game itself without your Safari Zone.

For anyone else who is curious about who has what in their Safari Zone, I've got a list here for you.

TurnbasedDude (Flying): Wild Pidgey and Hoothoot
Dice (Fire): Wild Magmar and Slugma
Tooker (Ground): Wild Phanpy and Dugtrio
Tunnels (Fairy - how appropriate): Wild TOGEPI (<3) and Swirlix]
KofvsCapcom (Rock): Wild Nosepass and Pupitar
Dincrest (Bug): Wild Butterfree and Beutifly.

No one has told me what my Safari Zone has, so when you guys get to it, let me know, I'm dying to find out if I have anything good in there.

Also, from what I've heard, you all unlock a THIRD pokemon in your Safari Zone if you are online at the same time as me, so If I see you online I'll check it out and update your list.

Thanks for the tip.  I originally wanted a Shiny Stone to turn my Roselia into a Roserade, but now I'd rather use it on Floette.

I beaten the game last night, and been digigng it a lot overall. Bit too easy (though I particually made it that way), the experience itself is still enjoyable. With loads of varied pokemon in the wilds, and enjoying the online aspect of it a lot, I've been enjoying the collecting aspect more than the other installments. Let's see how long I stick around for that.

Anyways, my friend code is 0473-7772-9263. Ill add you all who I did not add yet later tonight. Kind of letdown on my friend safari being lackluster, but ah well. Maybe my 3rd pokemon is a good one. Also, I read that the 3rd pokemon is actualy unlocked if your friend beats the game.

Starmongoose: Your friend safari has a Pansear, Braxien, and Pyroar (also currently the only friend on my list with a fire type safari.)

The easiness doesn't bother me as much as the incessant "level up" and "new move" dialogue.  Since you gain levels fast and *all* Pokemon share experience you keep getting the 'dings' that go on just a second or two too long (with respect to seeing/hearing it again and again for every Pokemon); and I hate how drawn out learning/forgetting a move is.  I know the game appeals to a broad audience, but c'mon, even a 4 year old can work a TV/DVD player after using it enough.  I hate when any game makes every choice you want into an "Are you sure????" deal.  YES I'M SURE.

Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Starmongoose on October 18, 2013, 09:33:35 PM
His attack and Special Atk are about even, really, a slight preferance to special attack.

Base Stats: 72 HP / 95 Atk / 67 Def / 103 SAtk / 71 SDef / 122 Spd

Perhaps your Greninja just has a Special Attack nature and a high Special Attack IV. :)
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Ashton on October 18, 2013, 09:52:27 PM
Well, his entire movepool and TM specialization seem to make him more special than physical, which is why my attempts to make my Greninja into a Physical attacker didn't work; he has much more versatility in terms of special attacks. ALso he never learns Dark-type attacks naturally even though he's Water/Dark.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Starmongoose on October 18, 2013, 10:10:24 PM
He does at higher levels, and Waterfall is a good Attack Water HM. :)
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Ashton on October 18, 2013, 10:32:01 PM
What level? Mine's almost 70 and still hasn't learned a Dark move. Good thing there's a Dark Pulse TM...

I'm aware of Waterfall, it's just that Greninja has more access to special attacks, and a physical attacker Greninja will never be as versatile as a special attacker. Plus, why would you use Waterfall if you have Water Shuriken? :P
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Starmongoose on October 18, 2013, 11:20:51 PM
Well, an unlucky Water Shuriken is only 30 damage. Even a max one is only 75 damage, while Waterfall is a flat 80. I guess the priority in Water Shuriken is nice, but Greninja is already super fast and will outspeed most things in the game already.

*shrugs* I was just showing that it wasn't all bad, like there were no options at all, I wasn't saying you were wrong.



Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Ashton on October 18, 2013, 11:28:53 PM
Well, I was lamenting that it has few other physical choices, because regardless of the low base damage, water shuriken is badass as hell and if I went physical I'd use that over Waterfall.

Soooo....I have one badge right now and a level 45 Delphox. Catching them all is really good exp if you destroy everything you encounter and do not catch. Also makes the game take freaking forever when hunting for stuff like Abra. Unfortunately I'm getting to the point where even my weakest Pokémon can occasionally OHKO wild Pokémon with his weakest move. >.> So I basically just have to paralyze them and then throw Pokeballs (or at least rare ones that I don't want to experiment survivability with). Bright side, I have the Chateau unlocked. I love that place it basically amounts to mugging rich people, so I can afford to throw massive numbers of pokeballs. I've been there twice today and already made up for the two challenge letters or w/e that sent out.

Side note, I feel like I must be doing something wrong when it comes to friends. I've added everyone who has posted their ID, but my friend list is still empty in game. I know two people who have added each other have to be on at the same time for the systems to register the friendship, but I was basically online all day yesterday. Hell I left my game on after I went to bed to try and catch anyone who is a night owl. Still empty. So three possibilities, no one signed on Saturday, no one has added me, or I am screwing this up somehow. I double checked and my friend code that I posted is accurate. So is there some secret handshake that I'm supposed to use that I would know about if I read the 3DS manual?

I seem to need to go to the home button to get the friend registered and I guess the next time you sign on in Pokémon (because you seem to have signed off 6 min before I checked my 3DS friend list) while I am on you'll get added to my in-game friends....Maybe? Hopefully I provide some kind of awesome Safari Zone Pokémon. Oh well whatever, I'm off to go mug some rich people again.

I still need to add a few of you. 

And I think I made an uh oh.  I get the feeling I evolved my level 26 Eevee into Jolteon too late to learn Pin Missile.  I really want that move since it's a bug type move and will add diversity to my party's overall movepool.  Anyone know when Jolteon learns Pin Missile in X/Y?  If I'm too late, then I definitely want to try and trade for a Jolteon with Pin Missile.  Because right now, the only other decent electric type I have now is a level 18 Helioptile and everyone else in my party is level 31- 38.

So I got my third badge last night along with the power to use Mega-Evolutions. Apparently my Pokémon are also high enough level to fight the Elite Four also. I guess mugging rich people and catching them ll is really good for EXP.

You have a Grass-type Safari and you have wild Petilil and Tangela. :D
Cool I guess? I haven't encountered either of those yet, so I dunno if either is rare or not. Can't say that grass suits me though. Btw, I am interested in the Cleffa you offered me (and any other uncatchable baby pokemon you might have), but I hit cancel a few seconds before the Cleffa appeared on my screen so I didn't realize you were offering anything else. A shame you can't cancel your cancel considering how long cancelling a trade takes. x_x

I have the TM, I just don't use it. Instead I now just use Sleep Powder, and throw pokeballs until they stick because I am filthy stinking rich right now.

My team: Jolteon, Meowstic, Florges, Pidgeot, Greninja, Blaziken.  I love this team (though I'd love it more if I had a Jolteon with Pin Missile.  I'm just about ready to trade my Ivysaur with mega-stone for a Jolteon with Pin Missile.)

I have very mixed feelings on the "rivals". On one hand I like the fact that there are multiple ones.

One thing that is bugging me is that the lot of them have no Pokémon. I'm up to my fourth badge and I think between all four of them, I have seen 7 Pokémon, while I have caught 150 at this point. It just seems silly.

The primary rival seems alright, I like her design. She has a generic enough backstory that works. I admit I wish she was a bit more antagonistic or maybe motivated. Then there is the....."love interest". I dunno what to call her. Memory girl? W/e. She works for me alright, but the "romance" feels awkward. It just suddenly appears out of nowehere with her commenting about how this is the first time she has watched fireworks with a boy and that it will be a special memory for her because she watched it with you.

The romance and interactions are basically the same with the female protagonist.  The pink chick basically, subtly, and ambiguously "flirts" on her side too.

Eh, it's not so much a romance so much as she clearly has a crush on you, nothing much romantic  happens after that. I don't know why the game is getting such flack for having friendly rivals, since it's been that way for the past 10 years and Pokemon is nothing if not formulaic.  May, Wally, Barry, Bianca, Cheren and Hugh and now Serena. They all fall into that friendly rivalry category.

I think people just want another Blue to be honest, no one much cares about Silver.

In terms of characterization, this game fails at it unlike how wonderful BW was in story terms.

Well, the Hard Mode in BW actually affected how the AI acts, so it was more than just a level advantage.

As for the characters in X and Y, yeah, they aren't that great, but saying that I've never felt anything for any Pokemon character ever, I've always seen them as just means to an end.

As for the rivals, the neighbor rival is Serena if you're a boy and Calem if you're a girl.  Calem is milquetoast.  I didn't feel bad about trouncing him every time (probably because he's a guy and there isn't that silly stigma of "you beat a girl"), but I feel like the element of a dangerous rival just adds a little heat to the subplot.  I liked the danger of the rival in Crystal.  Basically, I'm saying I'd prefer to have a rival like Paul (from the Diamond/Pearl anime) to punctuate the idea of a "bad trainer."  

As for Shauna (the girl with the pink dialogue boxes), I just saw her as an excited little kid out on her first adventure.  I saw her excited reactions to my character (I play as a female trainer) like a "cool big sister" that she wants to be BFFs with; especially since I'm always off on my own, she never sees me and it's like "Yay, big sis is spending time with me and not giving me the brush off!"  

EDIT: And in looking at passerby and all, I wonder... am I the only one who created a dark-skinned trainer?  Maybe it's because of my heritage, but every other complexion just looked pale to me.  And playing dress-up is fun.  I think my character is stylin.' 

As I said before, though, Fate/Extra did a good job when it came to altered dialogue if your character was a boy or a girl.  My familiar was talking to me kinda flirty, my kneejerk reaction was, "cop out!  I'm a girl!" then one of the dialogue choices that appeared was "Umm, you know I'm a girl, right?"

Eh, while I like the game, I'd say after how much effort B/W/B2/W2 put into the story, a lot of this game seems very weak in that regard. The rivals are all annoying (stop interrupting my adventure to drag me to some extra thing or give me some speech on friendship or dancing). Team Flare is kind of all over the place in their motives, and they're really just kind of... stupid, overall. There really didn't feel like there was enough of a build-up to the final confrontation with them, AZ and the Pokemon on the cover seem shoehorned in. I know there's foreshadowing to AZ, but his story didn't really make me feel anything. And the gym leaders. Besides Korrina, and a pre-gym scene with electric kid and Wulfric each, they seem to just be there for five minutes before you trounce them. They're so unmemorable that I keep mixing up the fairy and psychic leaders in my head. Gyms themselves were cool though.

I was also a bit "wait, who?" on the champion in this game, but X/Y has one of my favorite Elite 4s in all the games.

I still really like the game, but after the last few installments this one just feels like the main selling point was graphics and everything else took a hit for it.

I still really like the game, but after the last few installments this one just feels like the main selling point was graphics and everything else took a hit for it.
Well, let me summarize a few points:

Story: Is either the same or below average than the Kanto era, which is probably the worst compared to all games. The only character development you'll ever get is the fun sidequest in the Post-Game.

Characters: are pretty forgettable and never make you like them too much. Case in point, you'll never fight Fatty, Four Eyes, and Tanned Bianca beyond two times. If you took away Korrina's role as a Successor, she'd definitely fall flat in character development to the likes of One Liner Olympia... Actually, Korrina only lives for Mega Evolution yet she knows nearly nothing about what the hell happened to those mutated stones. Some successor you are, roller skater girl!

Villain Team: pretty much is like Team Rocket, but at least their boss showed a lot of hope.

Gameplay: is probably the only thing you'll need to focus on this game and forget the rest that feels like a bonus... But the Mega Evolution mechanic may as well stop rearing its head in future games because nearly all Pokémon who got this DIDN'T really need a boost. In fact, they get weaker because other Held Items are much more important. It's way more confusing how the region-exclusive Pokémon didn't get a single Mega. Oh, and Mega Charizard X? It'll still die quickly because Stealth Rock will nearly cream it before it Digivolves.

Post-Game content: ...what post-game content? Catch three Legendaries, defeat as many rich snobs in the Battle Chateau as you can, fight in restaurants, buy every single piece of clothing for you, participate in the Battle Maison, fill out that dex, and that's it...

Graphics: are very pretty and the fifth Gen can finally touch that ground in battles (not the Pokedex 3D Pro. By the way, will we ever get an update for that?)

Yeah, I feel like the game is better suited to super competitive people. I'm just only filling my dex so nothing interrupts me for PW: Dual Destinies in two days.

Added you too Ashton

Anyone can feel free to add me. I think I am only friends with Dincrest, Flamingrift and Lucca here. I apparently have an Electabuzz, Luxio and Emolga in my Friend Safari.

I miss having rivals that were douchebags. Blue and Silver made me actually want to beat them whereas Selena/Calem didn't have that effect. I will say that Wally from Gen 3 was a nice change of pace from the previous 2 but like the Fire/Fighting starter, I think it has outstayed its welcome.

I agree that the post game felt really lacking. Especially compared to the past few games.

Totally addicted to wonder trade. Although you get trash most of the time, you do still get the odd treasure. I also love getting Scatterbugs as it means a chance at getting a new pattern. I am up to 8 different colour Vivillons now.

I thought Serena made the most sense for a rival. She's obviously the best trainer out of the four that start the journey with you.

Also, I don't think having a 'bad trainer' rival all the time jives with the feel of Pokemon, which is supposed to promote good sportsmanship, also because the bad guy teams already fill in the role of 'bad trainer.' Though, to be honest, I'd like to see a game where a rival defeats the enemy team before you but instead of disbanding them s/he takes over as leader and then you have to fight them to disband the team.

As for the story, I thought this game was a step up.

Code: [Select]
Pokemon wars? A guy sacrificing hundreds of Pokemon lives to restore his friend? Weapons of Mass Destruction? Population cleansing? This is some grim shit for a game aimed at 10-year-olds.

Questions to long-term players of the series:

(1)  Are Pokemon relatively balanced or is it easy enough to isolate and forget a bunch of them?
(2)  Is it fair to say the two-type pokemon better than the one types (eg; Lucario as Steel/Fighting vs Goomy who's just a Dragon-type?)
(3)  I put an HM on and forgot you can't "forget" 'em off till later...meanwhile I sacrificed some good moves...can Pokemon relearn originally offered skills?
(4)  How often do y'all use power up/down moves and are they really worth it?
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Ashton on October 22, 2013, 09:33:12 PM
1. The latter.
2. It depends, but most - if not all - the good Pokemon are dual types that have fewer weaknesses, greater resistances, more versatility, or all of the above.
3. Yes. You can also delete HM moves by visiting a move deleter.
4. It depends.

4: I'd say power up/downs that effect multiple stats or boost/nerf stats by 2 or 3 stages are worth. Powering up just one stage of one stat is a waste of a turn.

4) I agree with Star.  I noticed that some of those skills have been tweaked this time around - String Shot now "harshly" lowers the enemy's speed, for example.

I'm surprised so many people are talking about the story, I never really paid much attention to it. I had a roommate who told me he really liked the black/white story and I suppose they did put a lot more effort into it that time. Pokemon's always been more about the game itself for me, though.

It doesn't matter in the least what you use in the game, Dice. Don't get bogged down in tiers and stuff, I play the game with the Pokemon I like. You only need to worry about that stuff if you want to battle competitively.

Aegislash is an absolutely outstanding Pokemon.
You tell me! Slow as heck but that enables it to resist a lot of damage before it changes to its offensive move and delivers some nasty damage, then you use its powered up Protect (King's Shield) to change back to Defense, negate all damage, and even then reduce the opponent's Attack harshly if it's a contact move.

I think I'm seeing a banned Pokémon in it.

I am such a girl.  

EDIT: In other news, my Jolteon got Pin Missile thanks to the move remember lady!  Between that and Meowstic's bug move, I have that base covered.  Only thing I'm lacking is a good rock/ground move.  Guess Luvdiscs are good for something after all- farming heart scales!

Thinking I'll probably give up on Mewtwo or w/e my legendary bird is since I'll be able to transfer those in during December, but I keep hoping to see a crap trade on the GTS that I can match.

The items in the botiques rotate based on days, so one option if you really really want the smock would be to change your 3DS system date to yesterday buy it and then change it back. Anyways, it isn't like there is anything else to spend huge amounts of money on. You can just beat up a Duke and get enough money to buy Pokeballs for two or three days.

Yeah, they really should have put in more male options, and they also should have made it so you don't have to wear a stupid freakin hat. >.>

I haven't gotten anything yet because as you said there really isn't anything worth getting. I however read in the (physical) guide that you can buy an item that cuts the price of clothes in half with Pokemiles in game, but it isn't in the shop list, so I dunno if you really can and if so what the price is.

I think only in hair styles.  Which is a bit of a drag.  But he gets just as many clothes, so that's something.  I am more troubled by the mandatory hat though.  Still, speaking ANY hairdo can happen in the Pokemon world, I'm surprised they limited the Male MC to 4 basic styles.

I'm more offended the female doesn't get a simple black hat (or I haven't seen one).  I can't see Pokemon games int he future without this heavy customization though, so hopefully it'll only get better

Also, how come some of the "Passerbys" look like Gym leaders or trainers?

So yesterday I saw someone trading a legendary for a low level Pikachu. I was so pissed that my Pikachu didn't match the requirements. x_x Right now someone wants a high level Aegislash for one. Might be able to get that one if I do some power leveling...Edit: Nope already traded by the time I realized I had enough rare candies to hit the level. I swear one of these days  will get a legendary by trade for a non-legendary. >.>

It also fixes the GTS bug.
I can now exclude legendary pokemon and only include pokemon I own without the 3DS crashing <3

How is everyone doing with their Pokedex? I only have 476 seen and 456 caught so far. I have heard some people say they have completed it as far as all currently available pokemon are concerned which sounds crazy to me.

The pics Dice linked also look awesome with Weepinduo being my favourite by far.

I've seen 350 and caught 211 I just got to the last city and have caught nearly everything in the routes so far and traded for all version exclusives(except for Xerneas). I haven't bothered evolving/breeding the giant number of Pokémon in my PC yet to fill out all the evoluions yet. Considering you have seen 476, I am guessing that the safari zone has Pokémon exclusive to the Nationaldex? As I believe that the total from the three regional dexes should be around little above 453?. Any idea on what the total currently available is?

I made what I think is my best PR video so far.  

PLEASE LOOK FORWARD TO IT GOZAIMASU.
Would love to, but you haven't added me as a friend yet. *glare*

I basically renamed two boxes "Breeding" and stuffed everything that had a pre-evolution I was missing into.  Yeah the Friend Safari has loads of pokemon that are only available in the national dex and also six of the seven currently available starters, only missing Torchic.

I tried to calculate how much pokemon were available a few days ago and I think the number was around 595.

EDIT: And in keeping with the general Pokemon discussion, I gotta ask: What's your favorite Eevee-lution?  Looks-wise, my favorite is Umbreon but my absolute favorite Eevee-lution is Jolteon.  Jolteon is a hyper-fast electric type who learns the bug-type move Pin Missile, which proves quite useful.  With all the other Eevee-lutions, I can easily find better Pokemon in those types, but when it comes to electric types, even if there are "superior" ones, Jolteon is still my favorite electric-type that best fits my playing style.  

EDIT 2: And Ranadiel- I found the smock I wanted!  I have a few in various colors, but the pale yellow one that's almost off-white is easily my favorite.  I don't care that the Lumiose City boutique doesn't think Cresta's stylish enough.  I luffers Cresta's style, I think she looks great in my PR vid, and Lumiose can't handle our coolness, awesomeness, and radicalness.  

Man, I am such a girl...

Jolteon. He used to lead my competitive team. Modest nature w/ Thunderbolt, Shadow Ball, Volt Switch, Signal Beam was fantastic. Would have liked Hidden Power Ice, but I could never get the right IVs.

Neal, if Signal Beam is still a TM in Gen VI, use that in place of Pin Missile. It's a special-type bug move that will do stacks more damage than pin missile.

Beat the game yesterday. Now onto breeding and evolving. Also got a Xerneas yesterday for a Yv that I got for my Zapdos. Wish it was in a Premier Ball like the rest of my legendaries, but I doubt I will find that easily on the GTS since I would be trading blind.

I'm going to go with the new one. I don't really use any of the Eeveelutions, so this is based solely on appearance and I think it is the best looking one. I do like several of the other ones though.....and it just occurred to me that they need to add a steel based Eevee. That would be amazing....probably.

Cool. And Lumiose style isn't based on clothes. It is actually popularity. Go do stuff in Lumiose and then they will accept you as one their own. If you want to quickly cheese it, just go to the Pokeball store, use highest Bargain level you have, buy Premier Balls until you have more than 100, and you will be considered stylish! Which can be used to get the egg hatching O-power! To be precise you need to have max "style." Only ways to check for max "style" that I can think of is being offered the Kanto starter mega evolution stones for 10,000 from the guy in the Stone Emporium and getting the egg power from the pink suited molester in the communication cafe.

I haven't found it is a TM yet, but my Meowstic learned it so that was a nice surprise.

Sorry Dice, 'twas just some playful teasing.  If it weren't for the whole Miley thing recently, I'd have referenced some other cheesy song about booty shaking, like "Baby Got Back" or something like that, in response to your vid.

EDIT: Oh, and is it just me, or are the legendaries kinda lame this time around?  I don't know about Xerneas, but Yvaltel kinda sucks.  Seriously, my Yvaltel can't take hits as well as my Pidgeot.  It's sad that my Pidgeot is a stronger battler than a legendary.

It only sucks in the fact that we only got just three of them.

No, Mega Evolutions aren't full-fledged Legendaries.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Dincrest on October 27, 2013, 08:03:45 PM
From what I'm seeing, Xerneas is a LOT better, being a fairy type.  Yveltal being dark/flying has a LOT more weaknesses.  X is definitely the more appealing Pokemon game what with Xerneas trumping Yveltal and X's Mega-Charizard being dragon-type (Y's isn't).  Man, was I ever wrong thinking Xerneas was a "glorified Stantler." 

I'm still having a blast with Y, though.  Just not using my legendary.

Currently hunting down Safari exclusive Pokémon through the GTS. Kind of annoying because most of the listings on the GTS are Legendaries or other stupid stuff. So I have to make a listing myself and just hope that people come across it. Electabuzz seems to work well for those purposes. Currently have 29 of the 52 safari exclusives. Once I get all 52, it is on to breeding and evolving everything. Woot! And then I will have every currently available Pokémon in my Pokedex minus two of the legendary birds.

Auuugh.  I still haven't found a black hat yet; closest I got is a brown fedora that just looks goofy on jean and shirt types of clothes.  x(

Looking through Serebii's customization list, I don't think there is a black hat for females. Well there is a Black logo cap, but it is 50% white. I guess they just missed including one (like white socks for guys). Closest thing I can see in the list might be the Felt Hat Navy blue. Don't know which boutique sells it though.

And hurray on nearly beating the game, that means your third Safari Pokémon will unlock soon! Here is hoping it is something good! Speaking of which, anyone check on what my third is yet?
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Dincrest on October 28, 2013, 05:25:56 PM
I think the closest to black is navy blue.  Unless the Lumiose boutique had a black hat, but their clothes are too expensive.  

Having visited all the boutiques now, I agree with Dice that Lumiose boutique doesn't have clothes that appeal to me, but they have some nice accessories.  So far, my favorite boutique is actually the bicycle town's one.  I love the colorful jeans.  The snow town and the town with the big crystal sundial have neat clothes too.  I thought the town with the pokeball factory would have my favorite clothes, because it's supposed to cater to weird/quirky style, but outside of that pale yellow smock top, I wasn't feeling much in there.

That was great. My favourite part was

"Sources also say that Bryant recently filed for divorce after catching her husband hiding in the bathroom on the toilet playing the game. He apparently told her to “fuck off” as he was about to catch a Shiny Mr. Mime."


Caught 530 so far. The ones I have left are either trade evolutions like Magmortar, pokemon that evolve at pretty high levels... and Clefable. Secret Super Training is not kind on left handed people but I really need that Moonstone :(

You traded a legendary away for a normal Pokémon? This makes me sad. Especially since you did it because of the Elite Four.

Pidgeot > Yveltal.  

It's almost as if Pokemon Y is crippled.  No dragon Charizard and a lousy legendary.  Is there anything Y has that's a trump card over X?  I like to favor the stuff that's less popular, but Y's not really giving me much beyond "pseudo-hipster cred."

While I suppose arguably true, wouldn't it have made more sense to trade for Xerneas since it is a highish level fairy legendary?

According to what I have read, a person out there has hacked the RAM of his 3DS allowing him to change Pokemon he encounters in an area to anything he wants by changing an entry in the encounter table (and I imagine he only changed the Pokémon and nothing about the Pokémon). He has discovered the three hidden legendaries of this generation which include Volcanion (Fire/Water?), Hoopa (http://smealum.net/hoopa.png) (Ghost/Psychic?), and Diancie (http://smealum.net/diancie.png) (Rock/Fairy?).

On an unrelated note, apparently people have managed to capture and decode traded Pokémon for this generation. So it looks likely that there will be a Pokegen for this generation.

If anything, that's a way-too-nice score because the story WAS an afterthought.

The story picks up near the end but yeah, it feels a lot like filler before that. Doesn't help that Team Flares leader was the only one in their group who felt threatening.

Looker sidequest in postgame had a decent story though, or at least compared to the main one.

Been playing through this game VERY slowly. Currently on Route 4 trying to catch a female Combee with one measly badge. Hence why I haven't posted my friend code in this thread yet. I may do so over the weekend though.

I kind of wish there was a way to change what Poke Balls your caught Pokemon are kept in. I have OCD and it's driving me crazy having a team of five regular balls and one Great Ball.

Couldn't find someplace else to put it, but for game of the month, you should really use runner up spots to give attention to games that may (sometimes) be really great but overshadowed by something that won hands down.

We had considered it, but then you have to consider that most months don't have many RPGs, much less GotM worthy ones.

Well you could maybe do it on a case by case basis, and not have any pressure to name a runner up, especially if it's a situation similar to if something like Ni no Kuni were beat by Pokemon/Skyrim or Radiant Historia against Trails.

Dice was actually quite flattered by online people wanting to be 3DS Friends with her.

But she decided not to say it allowed or even in forum-type; the small smile on her face said enough as she booted up another session of Pokemon Y.

Enjoying hersellf, she took another swig of beer. . A perfect reward to a long week; a hang out with friends and a chance to relax at the end of the  night.

I've been rocking that purple shirt with the blue scarf you get the in the Snow city... But I just look like I'm wearing a blue turtleneck in the picture... so I changed it up.  That, and the ranger has these GOLD eyes that just looked too cool for me. 

I'm hoping next Pokemon has a bit more character change options, eye style change, character build change, and maybe the option to take off that damn hat which seems like no trouble at all for the Rival character.

Anyways, I'm doing the Friend Safari!  ...I was so underwhelmed that it's just a patch of grass, but I do admire its 100% no frills approach!

Been battling people too.  I lost versus 4 with my 6....  I am not a Poke-Master (at least without Serebii open to tell me who's weak to what).

All this makes the new Pokemon-amie feature seem so so wrong.  

Anyway, I'm making bank working at the hotel now (I'm doing post-game stuff; really enjoying the detective sidequest), buying new clothes (duh), and just made another PR video, which I think is better than my first one.  

EDIT: And, I'll admit, the idea of the friendly rival/ group of friends is growing on me.  And I'm digging the worldbuilding.  Little things like the old man in the sundial city
Code: [Select]
who's lonely and asks you to lend him a lowbie Pokemon.  Post game, you see a pokeball in his house and a letter.  Simple, yet kinda poignant. do enhance the story.  And maybe because I'm more aware of the conspiracy theories, the whole "New World Order" slant of Team Flare added some gravity to them.  It wasn't necessarily comical villains like Jesse and James of Team Rocket, but there was some comic relief from the grunts.

I'm honestly stumped as to the massive appeal of the Pokemon games, I got good old Red back when I was a kid capable of putting hundreds of hours into tedious level grinding and even then couldn't bring myself to stick to the end. These days every time I get the chance to play a bit of Pokemon I get instantly bored and put it down. I suppose its the "gotta catch them all" mechanic that appeals to the many OCD gamers. Its massive popularity has to come from somewhere, so I'm probably in the minority here.

Yes! Finished up the Kalos Pokedex last night. Now I have the Oval charm! Current Pokedex is at 550! Assuming I haven't missed anything, I currently need 19 eggs, 10 level evolutions, and 5 stone evolutions. Edit: Oh right the fossil Pokémon. That adds a few more.

Oh right legendary birds.....anyone feel like donating one of them to me? :p

It is pretty tough to describe, but I think those of us who do enjoy it get a bit of a rush from catching a new pokemon or evolving someone new that we didn't have before.  And while this may differ for folks who play competitively, I think there's a lot of fun to be had in knowing that there are a ton of options for building your team for beating the final bosses, your team for catching pokemon, your team for...

That said, as someone who played Red for more hours than it could count (its clock maxed out at 256 hours) and caught 'em all that time, my enthusiasm for the series has waned over the years.  I didn't even play Black & White 2.  But all of the updates that they made for X & Y really freshened it up for me and got me into the old spirit.
Title: Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y
Post by: Dincrest on November 05, 2013, 02:42:51 PM
And it's different for different people.  I was addicted as hell to Pokemon Crystal and then was not at all interested in Pokemon... until X and Y.  I don't what it is that pulled me back in, especially after not caring for three generations.  And while Crystal did require a lot of grinding, X and Y put together a whole bunch of little tweaks that pretty much eliminate grinding.  I didn't really have to grind at all, and oftentimes was overpowered when trying to catch wild pokemon.  

EDIT: And I'm having too much fun with PR video making.  I have my first one (with a couple of mods) and two others that I like.  I can't decide which of the 3 is my best one.

EDIT 2: And when filling out your PSS profile, am I the only one who's a little disappointed by the limited answers?  Like, some of the questions I can't answer because the ones pertaining to me aren't there.  I wish that, like with the messages, you could write in your own responses.

Woot finished getting all 595 Pokémon that are currently available. Found a Xerneas on GTS last night for a Sloking and I was able to trade a spare Xerneas for an Articuno and then Moltres. So woot. I am considering playing long enough to get all TMs, but grinding BP seems kind of annoying.

Yeah, grinding BP sucks. If you beat 20 fights in a row in the Battle Maison though, you unlock super fights which let you start earning 2BP at the beginning rather than 1. Still slow but a hell of a lot faster than the first type.

Yeah, I've unlocked the single super fights when I was grinding for evolution items, but part of the problem is I just don't have a group of Pokémon that I like for the battles. My team when I was going through the first 20 battles (during which I amazing did not lose once) was Delphox, Charizard, and Azumarril. Obviously I have a serious weakness to water and ground with this group. I don't have a lot of other options that I really see. Delphox is staying because he is my most effective Pokémon. I could bring in my Aegislash, but he doesn't seem to have particularly good offense (probably low IVs and EVs in offense stats). I could use Blaziken, but well fire (yes half of my battle party was fire during the main game). My only other party Pokémon is Bellosem who was built as my capturer, so she has no offense. That leaves me with my legendaries as options, but I have no idea as to which of those would be effective.

You get it with Pokemiles according to the guide book.....no really knows the details at the moment though. People are speculating that it might be unlocked through the currently unreleased attractions though. Really though just battle your way up to Grand Duke status using the Amulet Coin on your first Pokémon and the Gold Writ once it unlocks (actually use the best Writs you have unlocked for maximum grinding). You'll have so much money coming out of your ears by the end that you can buy all the outfits and still have money left over....well male outfits at least. I think females have more outfits so you might need a bit more grinding.

ghost girl in an office building who floated by me and said "you're not the one." I'm curious if that's a one-off or if that's a hint to a further sidequest. 
I am betting that is a location where a specific event Pokémon triggers some event (or a Mystery Gift key item that triggers a legendary). So assuming it is related to a ghost that would mean Giratina or maybe Hoopa.

Last night I saw Moltres!  Too bad it flew the coop before I could even make a move.  It was somewhere between the day care and Battle Maison in the yellow grass, I think.  

EDIT: And if I'm to believe the Internets, then the most popular starter is/was Froakie.

If you check its Pokedex entry and area location, you'll see where it is currently. You have to find the legendary birds 12 times I think, before you can catch them.

Cool, thanks.  I just might have to do that.

Although, I'm partially thinking about going back to Vaniville town with my newly hatched level 1 Dratini (and perhaps with my level 1 Charmander) and retracing my journey fresh with a whole new team of 'mon.

Based on the number of Moltres's on the GTS compared to the other two legendary birds, yes. Yes by a lot!

If you check its Pokedex entry and area location, you'll see where it is currently. You have to find the legendary birds 12 times I think, before you can catch them.
Note that if you perform certain area transitions the bird will change areas as a well(and Fly will always cause it to change areas). The best strategy for encountering the legendary birds is to go to the Connecting Cave and soft reset whenever the Bird is in a nearby area as exiting the cave does not cause a location reset and you've got about 4 or five routes that you can get to without a position reset. Also keep a level 40 or something Pokémon in your first slot and use Repels so that the legendary bird is the only thing you can encounter in those areas.

My first shiny ever in this game is a light blue Relicanth caught with a single reeling move.

My second shiny was through using PokeRadar. It was a Shiny Diggersby, which is all gray except for a brown box on its belt.

My third Shiny through PokeRadar turns out to be a pink Dunsparce.

But I really want to have a Shiny Riolu...

EDIT: Happy day. I got a Shiny Ditto! It's pretty hard to notice the sparkles in a field full of high flowers.

Too bad Transform isn't affected by its shininess. I'd have loved to use it on nearly everything.

Andrew, Klyde, and GWulf (Tunnels) all have fairy safaris.  According to Grieg, my safari is a bug safari with wild Beautiflys.  Cool!  

And who fails more at naming things?  Rena (Star Ocean 2) or Shauna?  Gyoro, Ururun/ Creepy, Weepy are lame.  And in Shauna's case

Froabble is just stupid.  And I've never been fond of pet names like Kinniekins.  Chester is not bad for a male chespin.

Although from what I'm reading I might be boned since I don't really have a steady place to leave the 3DS logged in for long periods. All I have is a weak Wifi range I only get access to when I duck into the main house for a few minutes. XP Doesn't come out to my little perch.

Japan has re-obtained the right to download Pokemon Bank again. Expect many Japanese people completing their dexes and having a higher chance of defeating other unlucky victims by using tutor moves from B2/W2. Unless you want to die, swear off online battles for a bit.

But wait, as for the rest of the world(!) ...Stay tuned for updates! (http://"https://www.facebook.com/NintendoHandheldGaming/posts/606745806064081?stream_ref=1")

I have everything else, so I can trade you almost anything in return. I have all legendaries for trade (excluding Celebi, Mew, Deoxys and Genesect, Xerneas - only have 1 of each), plus a Shiny versions of Dialga, Palkia and Giratina I can part with. Oh, I could also use an Yveltal. Already have it registered in my Dex, but would like one to keep.

I've played every generation and I've only ever run into one shiny (A Nincada in Ruby), granted I never went out of my way to actually hunt for shinies before (I screwed with the PokeRadar in Pearl a couple minutes before I got annoyed), I usually just get my pokes up and battle. I actually think a lot of shinies look dorky, they choose the weirdest color scheme for some of them.

I already had Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina through the GameStop promotion along with the Legendary Dogs) through trades in GTS. But there's this nagging feeling that's telling me those were hacked Pokemon because the OTs look a bit implausible (0001337 for example)... Oh well! I like having these uber trophies anyway.

I should try to target Shiny Latios and Shiny Latias next.
