Personally, I prefer older protags. The romances feel less awkward, and it's less ridiculous for a 17 year old to save the world than for a 10 year old to do the same.

lol agree completly. the protagonists should have customizable ages.
>>
>>31407182
I think that could work. The one you don't choose (old guy or kid) becomes the rival. If you are the kid, the veteran works as a "mentor" kind of rival. If you are the veteran, the kid is a prodigy with more talent than you.
Whole effort vs talent thing.
>>
>>31407182
makes more sense a 18 years traveling than a kid. People travel by their own as adults, you know? A kid should be in school, and not being a trainer.

Also a trainer is a job by it's own, as they gain money battling.

> Daughter as a rival
> One of the E4 is your old classmate, he gets really happy to see you finally give it a go.

dude make this happen
>>
>>31407630
Point is, age difference is too large to work. A kid wouldn't just become friends with an adult just because they started the same day. A kid losing to adult or an adult "bullying" a kid are not the same things. It also kills any and all possiblities of romance, which is what the OP was concerned about. If there isn't going to be any romance, just make the protagonist a kid. It doesn't even matter.

In your mind, it might make sense. To me, it just doesn't. There's simply no reason to not just make them both the same age. A little customization is nice, but when going this far, it's not so much.

POKEMASTER the Sceptile was my first starter and Pokémon, ever, that I picked in Sapphire. Transferred all the way up to where it's sitting now in AS.

the oldest pokemon that I still have is probably the blaziken from my sapphire run, but the oldest pokemon I have and isn't just box bait is the linoone from that run, named Zigzag. One of the few pokemon I've ever got to lv 100 without the missigno item duplication glitch, and he saw play in every generation's postgame up to now thanks to the combination of surf, strength, and pickup.

Blastoise from when I started all the way back in gen one. It's living safe and sound in my Pokemon Stadium 2.

Since I couldn't transfer any of my mons from Red and Gold, the oldest I have is my Blaziken from Ruby.

I'm sure my Red version is still somewhere in my room with my original Gen 1 team on it.

But as far as the current games go, I've actually kept all my first game clear teams from each Gen. I still take them out each gen to get new ribbons or something. Obviously the one I've had the longest is my team from Ruby.

Sceptile, Torkoal, Milotic, Swellow, Aggron, and Chimecho.

>>31407441
It's not that weak to use so you're atleast doing some damage, and if the opponent gets burned then that just makes things easier to kill especially if they're physical attackers with no team clerics
>>
>>31407441
for the exact scenario outlined in the op, which can lose you games
>>
>>31407486
The only Tapu that's worth being physical is Tapu Bulu. Tapu Koko can OHKO easily after rock damage, 2HKO in the worst case scenario, so if you keep Fini in anyway for a slight chance of a chip damage you're a retard. Same thing with Lele, it's not really scared of Fini and even if you burn it it's still not worth it.

Tapu Bulu fucking wreaks Fini with a Wood Hammer, but it admittedly can be crippled if you manage it to burn it

Tha's fucking it tho. This is literally the ONE scenario where Scald MAY be more useful if you're lucky. That's still not fucking worth it becaus the odds of it happening are so low. It's like running Wake Up Slap instead of Close Combat because the opponent may use Rest

Why did these assholes bother giving any sort of release date without giving an exact day?

Remember the original wait for the initial fucking release? Remember that feeling of dread and anxiety while waiting for the fucking app to drop in the first place?

Why the fuck would they want to recreate that feeling again in their immense fanbase? It was already a huge blow when they didn't have bank ready for Sun and Moon on day fucking one.

So we're forced to wait, and how is our patience rewarded? By making us sit here and wonder every day "where the fuck is it?" At least if there was a specific date set for release, we would all KNOW when it's coming and didn't have to sit here twiddling our thumbs in the dark, constantly asking "is it here yet!?"

Stop doing this to your fans Game Freak.

Eh...I'm pretty sure even normies notice how jaggedy the models in the 3DS games are, especially since they even have the nicer ones on Go to compare them to.

That and the fact that the 3DS games dip into single-digit FPS is noticeable to everyone.
