Pokemon! Pokemon is many things to many people. Here are some current poketopics to pique your interest:

Pokemon SuMo (new trailer!)
https://youtu.be/3AZHowhxM0U
Out this November 2016. Tropical themed! New Pokemon! New aloha forms! New attacks called Z-Moves! Potentially a chance to train IVs? Whoooo knoooows!

20th Anniversary

The Arceus promotion starts August 1st. You'll have to go to your local Gamestop/EB Games to get the code. This should be the last time you're required to step into a Gamestop until November.

Pokemon Go

Sometimes people will play Pokemon by walking around in real life. What a concept! Enjoy the newest update, with the total inability to locate any specific 'mon.

Nuzlocke runs
Several brave and crazy souls on this forum seem to be doing a Nuzlocke run. Share your victories (and hilarious losses) here please!

    I should be able to snag an extra Arceus code or two if anyone has difficulty making it to an EB Games / Gamestop.

    Beat Flannery today in OR.

    Sort of forgot that there is basically no content between gym 4 and 5. In the originals you had to walk to back to Petalburg from Lavaridge, but you've already done all but the very end of that loop already. In the remakes your rival will just warp you to Petalburg from the Lavaridge gym's doorstep.

    Vow, I'm afraid that was all the luck you get for this playthrough. You have squandered it all on an electric rat who is now doomed to die from a series of unlikely misses and poorly timed crits.

    New Nuzlocke rule:

    If a new Pokemon is caught when you have a full team of 6, roll a dice to see who of your current team gets put on the subs bench for the new guy.

    Subs may only be put back into the team following the death of an active member. They may be freely chosen in that situation.

    Thus did Nutkin the Pachirisu replace Cragger the Onix.

    I'm thinking that the encounter rate for Pikachu in X must be way higher than it was in Y

    In Y, it took me wandering around for a little while

    I've now run into six Pikachus in a row in Santalune in Y. I just finally got into an encounter with a Scatterbug that broke the streak

    Does anyone have any extra event Pokemon from the first half of the year?

    I have been away from the series so long that I didn't know they were doing all of them in 2016 until now.

    I'll try my best to get extras of the ones I can to spread the love.

    Nah, my game is over if I run out of Pokemon.

    Also losing the sky battle didn't black me out anyway.

    I like the UI changes they made in Go for the most part. Still wish they'd just make a mass transfer option though.

    If you just need to get out of route 7 head left until you hit the caves then take those through to the next area.

    Nope, nothing "official". One common house rule states to not use gift Pokemon, period. Other people treat it (and the original starter) as a "random roll". Otherwise, I guess take whichever one you want.

    Hmm, I guess I'll just use a die to do it then

    1-2 Bulbasaur, 3-4 Charmander, 5-6 Squirtle

    This particular Pokemon will fill my sixth slot which means that the next one I catch I'll be doing the dice roll anyways to see which slot they replace (that's a damn cool idea)

    EDIT: Rolled a 6, giving me Squirtle. This really is a run which is playing straight to my preferences

    yep pikachu is a pain to catch just like the other starters, I waste so many resources whenever I see them.

    So far i've saved enough candy between pidgeys, ratatas, caterpies, weedils, and a bunch of others to get me around 100k experience if I sit and evolve stuff, I just dont think a lucky egg would last that long and i'd have to be catching a few since I have more candy than pokemon to evolve.

    Raichu is an old man who can't learn anything without tms, so it's probably a good idea to hold off on evolving until you've got a movepool you're happy with
