Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

IN STORES NOW
DO NOT TRANSFER YOUR SHINY RAIKOU/SUICUNE/ENTEI TO THE NEW GAMES USING THE REGULAR TRANSFER METHOD

BULBAPEDIA SAYS THAT WILL NOT UNLOCK ZORUA/ZOROARK

you have to talk to some douche in castelia and give the answers "EVERYONE" "HAPPY" "SIMPLE" "CONNECTION"
and then that unlocks the "relocator" on the main menu (like, the Continue/New Game/Mystery Gift menu)
use that to transfer them in
EV Hotspots
Spoiler:
it's absolutely a step backward in functionality
I still think we can have fun with this video game
that is for fun having

maybe it's not the fun we were expecting
maybe we won't have AS MUCH fun as we thought we would, or for as long
but it's still pokemon, the single player was already worth the price of admission in my opinion
whatever blood we squeeze from this stone is a gain


Will your draconian-type hold over the pokemon thread never cease?!
No. I am the once and future king of the Pokemon Thread. Also the current king. It's an infinite regency.

The hell goes on in here?
Mostly, we just argue about which pokemon are the best, and Fiz talks about the anime and the rest of us have no idea what's going on, and sometimes dudes post bad fanart on purpose. Gen 5 is literally here right now, and the SE++ Pokemon League is prepared and awaiting Gym Leaders with completed teams.

Incidentally, which pokemon are the best?
All poison types, Escavalier and Samurott. The rest rank somewhere below those ones.

But wait, I don't know anything about pokemon!
You disgust me. But if you wish to learn, there are three sources:
Bulbapedia, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a pokemon wikipedia. Craploads of information, and fairly user-friendly.
Serebii is another option, and probably a faster one for quick browsing of pokemon, but the guy who runs it seems really kinda weird and I don't think I like him.
Finally, Smogon.. This is a bad place. It is all about competitiveness and no fun, but in the interests of giving everyone access to information, I have included it. Just let it be known that if you make use of the dark secrets and cookie cutter strategies contained within, I will disapprove.

Why would you disapprove?
Because pokemon is not about winning. It is about FIGHTING SPIRIT, a bond between man and animal that does not in any way resemble some kind of horrific violent slavery. Strong pokemon, weak pokemon- these are the flimsy perceptions of people. True pokemon masters try to win with their favorites.

Got any other resources?
Got the animated sprites here.
Also, high quality artwork, complete with pokedex number and both english and japanese names. Handy.

WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH THE SE++ POKEMON LEAGUE?

So, with the introduction of B/W, the competitive battling community received a horrible shock: standard wi-fi battling was gone. The reasons for Gamefreak making this decision are likely unknowable and maddening, but we gotta make what do with what we got. And what we got are Flat Battles.
The hell is a flat battle?
It works like this:
- All pokemon are leveled down to level 50. They aren't leveled up, so if you have a dude at level 45 he will stay at level 45 and everyone else will be at level 50 and your pants will fall down and everyone will see your tiny penis. If your dude evolves or learns moves above 50 he keeps everything, he just gets reduced in level.
- Species Clause is in effect. The game physically will not allow two of the same species number.
- Item Clause is in effect. The game physically will not allow two of the same held item.
- Singles battles are bring 6, pick 3. Then you battle with those three. Just the three. The other three don't do fucking anything, they just watch and hop up and down and get mad that they weren't picked.
- There is a built-in banlist. See:
Spoiler:

So, how do we deal? This is how we deal:

- Until further notice, SE++ Pokemon League battles are to be Best-2-of-3 Flat Battles, with each participant having to use all six of his pokemon between games. Yes, this is not ideal. But it is better than not battling at all.

There is also the option for a Wonder Launcher, which is some kind of weird-ass way to say "You can use items in online battles". It's actually a pretty neat system, earning a point every turn, and those points being able to be spent on items like potions, heals, stat-up items, and at the very end of the scale, revives.

- Use of the Wonder Launcher is not mandatory. If you want to use it, and I recommend doing so, go ahead. If you don't, you don't have to. People who do want to use the Wonder Launcher are overruled if their opponent doesn't.

So, that's it? No more 6v6?
I didn't say that. Or if I did, I was lying. There is a 6v6 option, but it doesn't autolevel any of your pokemon. Why this option is even here I don't know, maybe they thought people just fucking love experiences like taking on the elite four and having all their dudes eight levels above you and getting their asses kicked and they wanna recreate that with their friends. At the moment, this option isn't an option, because I ain't gonna force the league to level all their dudes to 100 manually.

But, there is hope.
What we need are 3-4 people who can hack the game to produce infinite Rare Candies. Bold talk, I know. But bear with me. If you have Black or White, access to the Internet, a hacking device (I don't know what they're called I'm not a hacker) and a bunch of free time, you can help save the SE++ Pokemon League.
One we gather enough people with this power, the process is easy: everyone trains their pokemon as usual. When finished, they trade their team to one of these rare candy wizards. They take their infinite supply of sweets and use them to make all your dudes level 100. Then you get them back and we can battle 6v6 again!
Note, however, that this process is only a hope. Not enough brave hackers have volunteered to make this process feasible. If they do, however, it is an option.
I dunno if I'm comfortable with all this hacking.
Then don't do it! The best-of-3 flat battle style is still the official method of the SE++ Pokemon League. This option is just for people who really miss 6v6 battles, and agree to earn their badges through this method.

There is one more official rule:
- Don't be a dick. This is, bar none, the most important rule. View every action you take through the lens of wondering if you are a dick. Are you a dick? Cut that shit out. This is a big league. We do not need you. If nobody wants to battle with you, nobody will battle with you.
Don't be a dick.
