Da Husk.
I might play some more Moon tomorrow. Got 11 hours of flying ahead of me tomorrow.
Oh yeah, I've got a train trip on Tuesday so it'll be nice to have Pokemon for that
Anyone got any tips for Moon? I'm still on the first island at a pokemon school (?) I think.
Catch a Spearow and take full advantage of the trade in the Route 2  Pokemon Center that will give you a Hawlucha for it.
no such trade exists outside of ultra; it's just a machop in his game
Oh, thought he was talking about UM. Point still stands though, because that Machop was a powerhouse on my team in Moon.

FUCK evolutions that needs a specific move that isn't in the pokemon's learn set



So Swinub/Piloswine need ancient power to evolve, they don't get it by level up so you need to either breed it onto them, or heart scale Piloswine. And the move relearner? They're at the Pokemon League in gen 7. So I had to trade to Sun, but I went out of the way to get it adamant/icicle crash

Jacob Potila was actually a Jacob Flotilla of lies.- WarTurkey
I accidentally soft reset while doing the swap breeding method, and I haven't got a shiny yet. Am I fucked? Or am I still okay since it just went back to my last save? I'm only 2 boxes in.

my pokémon are dying in the absolute stupidest fucking ways

it's never poetic, it's always a combination of me being a retard + absolute garbage luck

like yeah, it may seem retarded to use an inkay against a bug-type, but was i REALLY supposed to assume that this cutiefly was going to know struggle bug at level 11?

i guess i'm still used to gen 2, where everything's moveset is trash garbage

I just learned that Gengar no longer has Levitate as an ability. I am very upset at this decision. Why would someone do this to a Pokemon that wasn't really that OP?

because they finally realized that it physically does not levitate

it's still very good

It's a ghost. Of course it levitates.

Literally the only upside to this is that it can now clear toxic spikes.

if you didn't like sumo, you wouldn't like this probably

unless your reasons for not liking it were "there's not enough pokemon" or "the story wasn't crazy enough"

After playing Showdown and getting fucked in circles repeatedly by RNG I can't bring myself to buy anymore of these games. Crits feel like they have been amped up to 11, and 90% - 95% accuracy moves miss far more than they hit anything.

Also, someone explain how a non-crit Low kick on a Timid Greninja one-shots Kyurem Black?

a super effective 180 power move (120 factoring in kyurem's weight + STAB after protean)?

that's a dead kyurem

crits are also not even that bad anymore; they used to deal double damage, and now they only deal 50% more

i fucking adored moon, favorite game in a long time easily, so i'm cool with playing it again with some extra new added stuff

though i AM disappointed that it's just another rehash, and as a consumer i feel like my balls are in a vice

Da Husk.
It's basically the same game as SM up until Aether Paradise. I appreciate the fact that they added an actual Victory Road this time around, but I found the E4 to be significantly easier than in SM. I suppose this is made up for by the Ultra Necrozma and Totem Ribombee fights though. Rainbow Rocket had some pretty hard fights too. Cyrus was challenging and Giovanni gave me a run for my money. Only survived with one Pokemon left with about 5 HP.

They seriously need to drop the third version concept, Gen 5 and 6 had it right by not doing rehashed for the first games of the generation

So like how they'll release say Ruby and Sapphire or Diamond and Pearl and then follow up with what is essentially a definitive version of the game like Emerald or Platinum. I appreciated that they didn't do a Grey or Z for Gens 5 and 6.

USUM has some different story things

Spoiler
Like Lusamine actually trying to defeat Necrozma instead of whatever the hell she was doing in SM

but it's not a sequel like Black and White 2

I don't care about either of those things. I want a good post game.
