Is hold back the most obscure move? A pure copy of false swipe given only to some event pokemon. I'm aware moves like celebration exist, but they are at least somewhat memorable.

Isn't that popular with lopunny though?
Having a klutz lopunny with a poison orb/ flame orb?

If not, that's the only reason I remember that move.

>It's a set-up move that causes a big blast with fire types right
er, what do you mean by that?
>>
>>27376736
This move is an increased priority move. If a Pokémon affected by Powder attempts to use a Fire-type move during that turn, they take damage equal to 25% of their maximum HP and cannot execute the move (PP is still consumed).
Powder will damage the Pokémon even during heavy rain. If a Pokémon with Magic Guard affected by Powder attempts to use a Fire-type move, it will fail to execute the move but take no damage.
Powder does not prevent a Pokémon from thawing itself by using a move like Flame Wheel. If a Pokémon affected by Powder attempts to use Natural Gift while holding a Berry that makes the move Fire-type, the Pokémon takes damage from Powder but the Berry is not consumed.
Grass-type Pokémon, Pokémon with Overcoat, and Pokémon holding the Safety Goggles are immune to Powder.

A fair number of mons get Flame Burst but I bet few people remember what its special effect is (because it's stupid).

That was more on the anime than the games.

Johto was near unwatchable and while the games were loved and hyped at release, the anime was needed to maintain overall popularity.

AG had a far better anime but the damage was done.

>Games on better-selling platforms can do better than games on worse-selling platforms

Gee I'm real shocked that Gold & Silver, playable on the GB and GBC, and Diamond & Pearl, playable on the DS, did better than Ruby & Sapphire, playable on the GBA. It's almost like the GB/GBC and DS sold 30m and 70m more units respectively.

It's like those people who jerk off HG/SS for marginally outperforming OR/AS. On a platform that sold nearly 3x as well.

so should i save my pokemon with the most filled cp bar and dump all candies and pixie dust into it?

Wait until you're like level 15 before spending shit besides common Pokemon for evolving for exp. Unless you don't really care, then go for it.
>>
>>27376698

No. If you have like 5 pokemons with 500ish cp or so. The best one is gonna be the one with the least full bar.

Or compare pokemoms with the bar filled the same way and then compare their cp.

Electric types are pretty trash until niantic rebalances speed, which they might never do. The only good electric types might end up being ampharos, zapdos, and magnezone. And dps/hp are king.

Exactly why Snorlax and Vaporeon are so fucking overpowered.

This is information sent to me from a friend who works for a certain gaming site, claiming to have received emails informing him about New Pokemon, emails that seem structured like something from the official Sun and Moon site. There were eight profiles sent to him, resembling the profiles seen on the site more or less, and are of the evolutions of the Alola Starters as well as five additional Pokemon. These will apparently be the ones revealed on August 1st.


Spectrix
Four-Eyes Pokémon
Grass/Flying
2'11"/19.8 lbs.
Overgrow

Spectrix is the Evolution of Rowlet. It has an aloof and highly curious nature, constantly observing everything around it even in the middle of battle!

From the moment it evolves Spectrix sports a pair of glasses carved from wood that seem to be permanently attached to its face, somehow these wooden spectacles give it unmatched vision. Even on a night without a moon it can spot prey from over a mile away, firing off a feather with pinpoint accuracy before the target has a chance to react!

Spectrix is an extremely intelligent Pokémon and is always observing something, rotating its head around in a complete circle to take in its surroundings. Sometimes it gets a bit distracted when something catches its eye, but will quickly spin its head back around if an attack is incoming and dodge it. Don't stress if it appears to be ignoring you, no matter where it's looking it always is listening to its Trainer's commands.

Most people in their mid-late 20s stopped watching the anime when Misty left, but me being a semi-youngfag (21), I grew up with the May episodes/movies in addition to the misty ones and I... liked them.

However, when May left and Dawn came in, that was the end for me. Not that the anime got worse (it's always been pretty bad, desu, despite some good memories), but that's where my nostalgia for the franchise ends.
>>
I resent missing out on what dawn episodes could have been because the show is one huge advertising gimmick.

I hope that when they finally ditch ash his last season is spent entirely as a bad ass mentor figure to someone like dawn whose rival is someone like paul.

I dropped out in the beginning of AG but came back towards the end of AG.

>>27376684

Even the battles in AG were dull. That is why a lot of people dropped out. if the battles don't carry water then people move to the next best thing which is the characters. May was the only thing holding AG together even with all the quality and cyclical episodes
>>
>>27376684
The old anime had more battles. In some of the recent anime more episodes are devoted to pageants and beauty contests. Ash is a terrible character but I hate seeing him sitting in the sidelines waiting for the contest to end so he is allowed to battle. Should just make that shit a spinoff for all the waifufags.

Why is there no Bug/Dragon yet?

After a bit of a thread hiatus, the server is back again. Same map, now populated with custom NPCs and custom NPC Gyms. These are fairly challenging and reward you with money and a badge.
Only extra mod is Crayfish Furniture.

>==[News]==<
-Updated Installation Pastebin since Pixelmon updated their launcher. It now includes Optifine as well. If you don't want to bother with the launcher, use the MultiMC-Guide in the helpful links.
-Gyms are now populated by NPCs, collecting all badges enables you to challenge the Elite 4 and become the Champion. You can find a book in spawn that will help you find the Gyms.
-Routes have been built to connect the towns that have gyms to make it easier to travel between them (if you want).
-Some towns are now also populated by NPCs with custom teams. These reward more exp.
-You can find custom NPCs around the map and challenge them to battles or get items.
-If the NPCs are well received and don't strain the Server too much, we can probably add more, as well as some that give out items.

Nothing good. A few garbled junior-high level attempts at a hurt/comfort, but otherwise empty. I guess I could change it to a request, or maybe do it myself if I have the time. A simple, cute/comfy story of friendship is all I'm asking for, if anybody is up to it.
