    Is it possible to trade from Let's Go Eevee to Sword? My kid is playing Let's Go and wants a Gengar. I don't have a second copy of Let's Go, and I don't really want to pay for an online subscription for her to do a couple of trades. Or maybe I could get her Pokemon Home, send her Haunter there, trade to my Home? Would that work?

    Even the slightest provocation can set off such a discharge, so in human settlements, Hisuian Voltorb is considered a nuisance. Tales of people temporarily plugging the hole on Hisuian Voltorb’s head and kicking it out of settlements are not entirely uncommon.​

    You can only trade pokemon with the same game/same pair of games. And I believe you can only take pokemon from Let's Go to home, not the other way.

    You can get Pokemon Go connected to Let's Go.

    Getting a Gengar in Pokemon Go is fairly easy... around Halloween.
    Maybe not so much now.

    Is it a whip, or a scythe and a Pokemon made of hay.

    IIRC there were whips in some of the NPC trainer sprites that were cut for the final release. So I think it's actually a concept that lasted for quite awhile.

    Forget where exactly I saw it, might have been https://tcrf.net/The_Cutting_Room_Floor (of course I'm at work so I can't check now, it's blocked here :3)

    A bunch of trainers had whips back when Mew was from Brazil and Surge was American.

    Notably, the gym leader Sabrina had one.

    I haven’t bought a main series game for a long time but I could almost be convinced by A Large Hay-bail, a single line grass type with nothing notable about it.

    I'm going to be honest people. Let's Go Pikachu has been great. Easy. Pretty. No PC box to run back and switch out mons. Psyduck main baby.

    I think the real next step is a new pokemon stadium. They already have 3d models for everything. and i just want to battle people, not deal with breeding for IVs and egg moves, then dealing with leveling and EVs. and then they can do all kinds of rotating tournament types and seasons with different banlists and items and things like megas, dynamax, and legendaries. and they can consolidate the entire pokedex into one game because they wont really need to do up a whole world and story.

    I spoke to Mr. Game Freak and he says they have to have the snot green kind of shinies.

    Call it whatever you want if I get the functionality but don't have to play it in a fucking java applet, and it is more broadly adopted than by a bunch of Smogon adherents.

    Honestly? I’m all about the mini-games. I dare not play Stadium 1 again for fear they weren’t actually as awesome as I remember.

  • discriderdiscrider Registered User regular
    I don't think that's possible honestly.
    They are exactly as awesome as that.

    I’m over this as a game series but this little short that just popped up for me is pretty much ideal. You should watch it!

    So I just got Shining Pearl for Xmas and apparently they kept TMs as one time use? Not cool

    Would someone be able to trade me a Gible? I’d like that to use as my “starter” if that’s possible

    Eh it's fine, you can get plenty of each TM as needed, unlike the og games.

    Gameplay overview:



    Im quite looking forward to some new pokemans explorations.

    And the speed/strength attack system with the order bar in the corner is a slight thing but one that should make combat much more dynamic and interesting. It not being just a back and forth adds just that little something else to any turn based RPG that has me quite excited to use it in a pokemon game.

    i need someone with either BD or SP to trade evo with me.
    of course, if the person has SP it's even better, cause then we can trade version exclusives.

    Ohhh it also looks like they increased HP numbers which really looks to go a long way to make the new battles have more back and forth instead of one shot city.

    Hypehype!

    I finally got around to pre-ordering Arceus :3 I'm debating if I wanna watch that video, but I think I'll just say "I already bought it, let's go in as blind as possible at this point" :P I do hope the mission stuff is a big part of it - that really appealed to me a lot.

    I'm kinda unhyped about Arceus.
    The idea seems awesome, but what videos i have seen do not exactly sell me on it.
    That said, probably somewhat uncharitably on my part, the biggest "wait, what?" thing in them that has made me less than fully onboard was just having a guy in a labcoat standing there.
    Could you not go all in on ancient looks? Make them a priest or a monk or a sage or something?
    That, and that rather poor animations shown (not finished game footage, yes, i know), and some other stuff, have made me decide not to pre order, and instead wait a couple weeks after launch and see reactions from actual players before buying myself.

    My biggest concern/criticism is that it looks like only the three announced variants will be travel pokes.
    Due to the silhouettes on the UI to trigger them.
    Let me ride all the pokes.
