[Pokemon] Chuck those Pyukumuku, sniff those beds!

Hey trainers, there's been a lot of news in the Pokeworld recently!

olrd8opromo4.png


SUN AND MOON

The big one. Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon release this Friday November 18th worldwide... except in Europe, where it will release on November 23rd for some reason. Set in the Alola islands, SuMo will feature a whole bunch of new pokemon, new special "Z" moves, an end to the HM curse, and also "alola forms" of some beloved first-gen 'mons.



Spreadsheet for adding SE++ players
Add your info to this spreadsheet and join other SE++ers in playing the game!

Early rewards
  • Playing through the SuMo Demo (obtainable in the eShop) gives you access to a special "Ash-Greninja" that has a special Z move
  • A special Munchlax will be available for download by Mystery Gift
  • Magearna will be available by QR code on the Pokemon.com website from December 5, 2016 to March 5, 2017. You must beat the game before being able to obtain it.


20th ANNIVERSARY LEGENDARIES

44e6584gfq55.png

For players with XY and/or ORAS, Genesect is available by paper card code obtainable at your local Gamestop/EB Games. This concludes on November 24th, so pick up your code today!


POKEMON GO

It's getting cold out there, but some people are still playing Pokemon Go! Yes, really! Newest update: DITTO IS IN THE GAME. It's apparently disguised as pidgey, rattata, or zubat, and only reveals itself if you catch it.


SE++ LEAGUE?

We may be setting up a SE++ league? Some discussion about this was floated about in the previous thread. TBA after everyone has had a chance to go through SuMo, and perhaps when the Pokemon Bank becomes compatible with it in January. Feel free to pitch the mechanics or your ideal gym setup!


Anyway, Pokemon talk goes here. As a courtesy, please spoiler leak talk up until the games' release.

    Just as a heads-up, that spreadsheet link told me I need permission to access it.

    Dangit, give me a second to try and fix that sheet, sorry

    Also in drafting the first post I JUST realized it was "alola" and not "aloha" as I've been saying ever since the initial announcement.

    i still really want gen 2 mega starters.

    they're just so kinda bland right now. What if, you could make Meganium, bigger, happier, and goofier?

    It would be, astounding.

    I like Feraligatr fine, but Mega Feraligatr would be teeeeeerrible. Just an amorphous lump of spikes with a face.

    Does Haxorus at first glance look extremely dark and badass and evil

    Then on second glance appear to be a dragon who has made a sock puppet version of himself for each hand

    No?

    Haxorus is probably the best of the edgelord dragons, for what that's worth. At the end of the day it's all about Flygon and Goodra, though.

    I'm sorry, a lot of those dragons are good but none of them are able to match the king of the dragons: Alolan Exeggutor.

    if Hydreigon is the best, why isn't it Dragonite?

    Dragonite would be bottom tier if it weren't for Salamance and Druddigon

    Noivern, now that's a dragon

    noivern is a wyvern. And therefor not a dragon.

    As it grew taller and taller, it outgrew its reliance on psychic powers, while within it awakened the power of the sleeping dragon.

    The game comes out in a week here in Europe. My wife tried to argue that it was a waste of money to buy a DS just for one game. Now I need to find out if that was just a ruse to surprise me with it (early christmas present or whatever) or if she was serious.

    My DS, diamond and soul silver and just arrived through the mail courtesy of my brother. They still have my pokerus infected pokemon and event Jirachi stored on them.

    I also saw a huge rainbow this morning. I'm not sure if it's possible for me to be any happier

    One of these days I'll get around to doing BW2. It's the only games I've skipped.

    I never went back and beat the E4 for real in Black either, now that I think about it.

    Salamence is great.
    By evolving into Salamence, this Pokémon finally realizes its long-held dream of growing wings. To express its joy, it flies and wheels all over the sky while spouting flames from its mouth.

    It learns Fly when it evolves.

    Is there a guide or list somewhere of the version exclusives? Or are there no exclusives because you can just play in day/night to get the day/night evos or cycle your clock?
