Dhelmise isn't an anchor. It's the seaweed.

 

and Lurantis is pretending to be a bug, it's not a bug. Fighting would be cute for Brick Break tho. (and stab contrary superpower and hammer arm plz GF). 

this tea, :jonny: i wanted to hack Superpower on to mine but Close Combat seemed more realistic so i went with that :chick3:

The Pokémon Company confirmed last year that they have begun to work on games for Switch. Add to that the many reports of Pokémon Stars. With confirmed information and so many leaks, it just seems redundant to not even mention it. Especially when they announced Fire Emblem for 2018. Just an odd decision...

Yeah but beginning to work on something doesnt mean its going to be ready. Pokemon Games usually take 3 years when they start working on them in the early stages. They're waiting till the switch is out and its performance to see what route to go with the new games. 

 

Also the paying for online usage is gonna hurt.

It's an anchor and ships helm covered in seaweed. Even so, Grass/Steel would have sufficed. I love this gen, but the typings drive me crazy! With so many Pokémon now, they need to stand out. One way to do that is unique typeing. It's criminal to have amazing designs only to have lackluster stats and a basic typing.

As a design, yes. But as a concept, no. The Pokemon is literally stated to be the seaweed. It is possessing an anchor. Hence grass and ghost. It's like Comfey; the flowers aren't actually the Pokemon etc. It makes sense altho i would have preferred water and grass tbh. 

 

Also we already have two really good Pokemon for both Steel Ghost and Grass Steel (Aegislash and Ferrothorn). Grass/Ghost on the other hand... even with 4 of them now... eek.

No. they changed the note on the manual to 'By the end of Q1' instead of end of january. However, I still kinda believe it'll be end of January. Dunno why people expected it so early. Thought it was obvious that it wouldnt come out till at least the Alola Friendly was finished? I'd expect it around the 30th. But yeah, might be February or March now

 

"plz understandé".

Does anyone know if Pokemon Bank uses the same server as the PGL? It's so slow because of Pokemon Go's servers being attached, I couldn't imagine what will happen when Bank-SM comes out :deadbanana3:

 

The PGL takes forever to browse. It's annoying. I came fifth in the UK for the Battle of Alola btw :gaycat1:

Eh last few weeks I actually went back to my Omega Ruby to Breed and get pokes to LVL 100 :doc:(breeding in gen 7 may be faster, but lord it is very hard to get them above level 60 in S&M):. There really isn't much to do postgame and I'm so frustrated Pokebank isn't out yet :jonny:

I don't even think I finished getting all of the Legendaries in Ruby. I got the majority of them, but I don't feel like going back to finish. :jonny:

The next rate should be fun, I hope the host allows comments because I have CHOICE WORDS for a few of them.

 

Gen 5 isn't as bad as y'all make it out to be, though. Better than 6! 7 truly showed us what a good 3D Pokemon game was.
