Since I fully looped around back to the now fully explorable, gigantic, nightmarish to navigate hub city I've lost all momentum playing this game. This fucking city, just like the awful (yet not even this atrocious) central hub city in B/W is enough to kill all the will I have to play thru this fucking thing. I wish I knew what the fuck they were thinking including this. Even pulling up a map of the city isn't making me want to slog thru this. There's a bunch of fucking useless cafes and shit with nothing in them, trainer battles scattered all over, every street and building looks the fucking same and the god damned controls and camera are the worst I've encountered in any video game.

I ended up using a good mix of classics and new characters for my playthrough.

Obviously, I caught everything I encountered, but the party I ended up beating the game with was: Greninja, Charizard, Aegislash, Exeggutor, Lucario and Aurorus.

In my Y playthrough, I used Chesnaut, Blastoise, the special offer Blaziken, Golurk, Malamar, Tyrantrum,


Now I mostly just use my all-Dark team that are all level 100, max Speed IV, correct nature, bred with Egg moves to cover their weaknesses, etc.

Protip: A Normal-type friend Safari with Chansey's in it it awesome for level grinding. Even at level 30, Chanseys are a shit-ton of XP, and their spawn rate in the safari is 33% instead of the normal 1-5% it is in most games.

So, this right here is pretty fucking cool if you're curious at all about competitive Pokemon play.

It's basically Nintendo keeping track of the 12 most used Pokemon in each type of ranked play, their most used moves, items, abilities, etc.

Surprising literally no one, they have apparently announced remakes of Ruby and Sapphire for the 3DS.

They took their time to say it's a "new adventure" and that it's a "new world", which are strange phrases to throw out when announcing remakes.

I'm a little weird in that Gen 3 was my favorite generation, so I'm super excited for remakes, especially considering just how damned good Heart Gold and Soul Silver were.

Gen 3 was the worst IMO because of all the fucking water.

I'm sure there will be a ton of tweeks to lesson the amount of surfing :)
Hopefully lesson the amount of freaking HM's as well! Nothing I hate more then wasting a slot on HM slaves.
Bring on Mega Swampert & Sceptile! Maybe he'll even get some grass/dragon typing.

More rehashed pokes. I'd make fun of all you idiots, but historically I'm just as big of a sucker for rehashes of my favorite games too.

Can remakes be called rehashes?

Absolutely, yes. Although even the main line Pokemon games are rehashes as well. The entire franchise is eating its own tail.

Oh good. I get to take a year off from Pokemon. That's a relief.

It's not gonna add any new Pokemon, and since the Bank is supposed to be compatible with all future games, there's no real reason for me to catch anything in R/S again. Hell, a bunch of the Pokemon in my bank are from the original R/S.

I'm sure it will add a bunch of new Megaevolutions. But since you can't put Mega stones in the bank, there's no reason for me to get them.

Been meaning to replay X&Y. If everyone else seems to be starting a new playthrough maybe this is a good excuse for me to start my second playthrough.

I wish you could have multiple saves in Pokemon. Gonna try backing up my current save somewhere but I'm not sure if it'll work.

Oh God, Mega Gallade.

He looks kinda doofy, but it's still a Mega Evolution for the best damn capturing Pokemon in the game(Hypnosis, False Swipe, Mean Look).

I might have to play Omega Ruby after all.

I decided to get back into Pokemon Y because for some odd reason I've felt the need to catch them all before Ruby comes out. This is odd considering I've never played a Pokemon game before Y and now I'm fixated with catching all in X/Y. I've been grinding away, capturing and evolving as many as I can, as well as trading.

Any tips? I have 3 people in my friends safari, but I've caught all the ones offered through them. Is there someone where people exchange friend codes just so they can get access to the safari?

I'm not a fan of the way the mechanic works, but I love the evolutions themselves.

I know Gamefaqs has a whole thing they do there.

I'm sure actually Pokemon forums could answer that better though.

Haha, I made this post when R/S remakes were announced and that totally proceeded all the "Too much water" shit that the Pokemon fanbase collectively lost their shit about.

http://www.ign.com/boards/threads/lmao- ... 454299512/

From this IGN review:

Reviewer is fucking RIGHT and Pokemon fans are fucking retarded. Ruby and Sapphire sucked shit.

Oh, I started playing fucking Pokemon again. Just dabbling. I only played enough to remember why I fucking HATED the new games. They're so bad.
