How the fuck does this thing evolve? I've fulfilled the HP requirement and have taken it under the arch but it isn't working. Is there some other requirement too?
5 replies omitted. Click here to view.
is there some kind of logic or lore behind the evolution requirements? like how the method for finding Spiritomb in D/P/Pt was a reference to a number of spirits or something?
*Huff Huff huff*
*HUFF Huff Huff*
Well, that's what worked for me
It has to sustain damage while in your party.
I tried taking a freshly caught one with only a bit of HP left there and it didn't evolve.
So I healed it, let it get beaten up by a Noibat, and then brought it back and it worked.
Some of them, yes. Malamar's features are inverted from Inkay's, and the spin for Alcremie is literally making whipped cream. There is no lore justifying Runerigus, though.

I agree with you that there's definitely someone incompetent at some level of Game Freak. The games being stale in many areas is one thing, but there are a bunch of bizarre decisions, like removing the EXP Share toggle, locking audio options behind an item you get from an optional NPC, still not letting you skip cutscenes in TYOOL 2019, etc, that can't be explained with anything except incompetence, laziness, or stupidity.
The sad thing is, the fact that people will buy Pokemon no matter what should mean they have all the opportunity in the world to experiment and try new things. And yet, because there needs to be constant growth in profits, and because GF no longer sees their games as anything more than a small slice of their merchandise pie, the only changes they'll even consider are those that will give them a direct and guaranteed increase in profits; that pretty much consists only of penny-pinching and ways to reduce development costs, aka effort.
One thing I forgot to mention in my last post was that Nintendo was actually willing to delay the game, to add new features, no less, which GF would never consider because they need the Pokemon brand to be omnipresent in your mind.
>spanish dub
Who tf is that guy with Mexico's flag? For me the real and only Ash Ketchum's latinamerican voice is Gabo Ramos
I also mean straight up incompetence in programming and art. I don't wanna bring up "the tree", but there is no reason is should look that shit, and they just copy pasted that one tree everywhere too. There's a lot of little bugs and poor optimization in general.

And why the fuck is the budget for the games 20 million? They make like 700 million on the games alone each gen, and like you said, that's only a fraction of their merch-empire money. Why on earth would they not invest 100 to 200 million to make the games fucking glorious and increase their merch sales even more?
100 is a AAA game, 200 could make the most polished games on the planet.
Oh yeah baby.. freeing Hong Kong intensifies.

You mean the credits that say Nakatsui was the Pokemon/Character design lead? And that JT was the Art Director and one of the Pokemon designers? Which is exactly what I said?
>Yes, he is the art director.
>Yes, he is a Pokemon designer
Yep. So OP lied and you're a faggot.
>So he assigned Nakatsui to oversee the Pokemon designs.
Which means he had to oversee Nakatsui's choices as well. Do you not know how compartmentalization and workforce team hierarchies work?
I’m convinced GF’s employees purposefully sacked this game to give their gaijin a bad name and turn him into the undesirable of the workplave
gamefreak designers are so fucking stupid they can't even get the credits right and we can't fucking tell who did what
good job, gamefreak!

Remember that the Pokemon appearing in the overworld was made in less a year because of legpiss

The comfy safari zon- I mean wild aera would be an empty bitch where you would still need to search grass to get random pokemons
>still seething
LGPE's overworld mons were horrible
and yet they were still better than random encounters
The point is that everybody suck the dick of SwSh safari zone when Masucuck didn't have any fucking idea in the first place and the whole game would have been Pokemon but without the content

Now everytime the shills will bring their so beloved wild aera, they secretly sucki'g LGPE cock

This is Showderp, where one anon volunteers to be champ, and everyone else gives champ six pungent odors to sniff. When champ passes out, we either brew six new aromas, or a new champ takes their place.

>the literal eleventh hour
Still better than Lysandre who's only plot point was "I Like Beauty. I'm Gonna Make A New World." Why? Because... reasons.

At least they made a genuine point to lampshade the fact Rose wanted validation/to be seen as the dude who "ensured Galar's future". Leon even points out he could wait a DAY and he doesn't, because he's a narcissistic asshole.

/vp/ help me decide which pokes should be on my team: galarian rapidash, cursola, or haxorus. I can take two and truly cannot decide who is getting boxed.
Give the rest of your team
I'd say Rapidash and Haxorus just for coverage purposes unless you're doing some trick room shenanigans then maybe cursola over hax

I just beat the champion, what’s left to do?

Selling the game.
Buy all the clothes and get the other fossil pokemon. That's what I'm doing.
Wait till the game deletes all your saves
Alright so straight up there’s these two faggots with weird hair. Are they interesting at all?

sucks that megas are gone, wish I coulda seen these lads mega evolve...
Seriously! A Mega-Feraligatr and a Mega-Infernape would have been the shit. They would have definitely been at least OU. Feraligatr could have kept Sheer Force, but I would have rather seen it get something like Adaptability while picking up the Dragon-type. As for Infernape, just the stat boost itself would have made it great.

Just thinking about it makes me want to fiddle with my dick.
Neck yourself. They ruined my Hoenn and Kanto bros outside of Venusaur

This. All I generally see in the pokemon fandom as a whole is talking about the 6-8th gen games, which I've never really cared for, so seeing a general pop up for the older stuff is a welcoming sight.
I enjoyed XY too, and lament what it could have been if we had gotten a Z version like it deserved.
But me neither, Gen 7 burnt me hard. I'm way more critical than ever with the new games.

I'd also recommend HGSS. There's some debate about whether Gen V, Pt, or HGSS are the best entries in the series, but they're all definitely up there and my vote is for HGSS even though Pt was my first major game and I loved it. It's got amazing nonlinear routes to explore, gorgeous scenery (see >>41305084 ), 2 whole regions, daily things to do like berries and the radio, swarms, etc...

Glad you're enjoying it! I wasn't sure if there would be enough interest to keep the threads alive, but it's cool to see people having fun talking about something here for once
The secret base mechanic in Gen 3 was my all time favorite. I love Gen 4 but the underground felt really underwhelming and kinda boring compared to the varied options for secret bases in Hoenn.

That said, Anyone playing gen 3/4 got cool secret base screenshots to share? I regret nowadays that I didn't spend enough time on those little customizable rooms when I was a kid, because I really wish they'd still be around.
will do, anon! there was no "_____ edition" in the OP because I forgot.
also, good job on starting the first thread. here's hoping these generals stick around.

I've been resetting this raid for a HA snom for like 4 hours now. what am I doing wrong? I thought the rate was like 25%.
You have to do all of them before they reset.
so annoying. fucking magikarps and quillfish spamming water moves to heal seismitoad
Isn't the HA already decided by the time the den spawns?
Is it? I don't know.

With gyms being placed by rank, he's the second strongest out of the entire region. He probably could have fucked up dragonfag if he bothered dynamaxing but is too much of a proud chad to do it.
Based shota showing crack addicts whats what
Second strongest gym leader without Dynamax.
Imagine a 20 year old getting bullied by a 10 year old for being a retard.
I'm glad he got to retire!
At least now he can rock n' roll now!
Hope he'll be happy
