This is a thread to discuss released Pokémon games, main and spin-offs. Talk about your achievements, reveal your main series games teams, ask for help, etc.
I got Pokémon Conquest, the Pokémon and Nobunaga's Ambition crossover, around four weeks ago and finished the main story yesterday, now I am currently playing the extra stories. I have to say I have been really enjoying it, it's the first time I played game like this, unfortunately due to me enjoying it I felt like I've been playing it too fast. It also makes me want to see more crossover games being done of Pokémon, though not sure what game would make for a good one.

No, we just had threads for main series games. I know there are people who want to talk about any current Pokémon game, so that's why I made this thread.
By the way, I believe it's better for any newly released spin-off game to be discussed here instead of having their own thread, this is due to their usually being hardly any discussions on them most likely from a lack of interest (I am very into Mystery Dungeon and Pokémon Ranger). Meanwhile, any newly revealed main series Pokémon games are better suited for their own threads - like the one for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire - because they always get talked about a lot.
I loved Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team! It was one of my very favourites (and still is, even though I don't play it anymore)! I had played it for over a hundred hours before I knew it. This game left a huge impact on my life. Needless to say I had a mental breakdown when I accidentally overwrote the main save file. I never got the urge to play any Mystery Dungeon game since then.
I am seeing all these new spin-off games being revealed which I don't care for and all I can think is; "Where's the fuck is the new Pokémon Ranger game?".
I want to have Pokémon Ranger in 3D, I want to loop in 3D, I want there to be riding Pokémon in the skies just like in Guardian Signs, only this time I want to see in all angles instead of just in front, I want to ride on Pokémon all over the outside land just like with the second and third games in 3D (unlike in just one part of an area with X and Y). Also Pokémon Ranger games have had good plots as well, these games undeservedly underrate when they really are great IMO, although I wouldn't suggest starting with the first one as the looping in it can become very annoying and might result in a badly aching hand, wrist and fingers.

All this recent Pokemon talk has put me in the mood to play the games again, so I picked up X again and I've retaken to trying to hatch a shiny Wooper. If anyone wants a Wooper, lemme know because I got like over 100 of them right now.
Also sorry because I'm gonna be clogging up Wonder Trade with these things soon also.

I really liked Pokemon Conquest, though I've yet to finish it. It was a bit too simple for my tastes, and a bit too easy too, but I've come to expect that from Pokemon games. I would have liked if the Pokemon got more than one attack to use, it woulda been a lot funner.
And as I've said before I love how it takes place in Pokemon's feudal Japan equivalent of an Amish Country.
Also Guardian Signs was excessively easy, even for a Pokemon game. I also found the characters to be annoying and they talked way too much, and removed the multiple partner option they had in Shadows of Almia (which in my opinion, was the best Ranger game).
A shiny Wooper with Curse and Recover?! Damn, well done! You seem really obsessed with Quagsire. I usually don't hunt for shinies, as I believe that all that glitters is not necessarily gold. I even wonder why people go after these things like crazy. I have no complaints about my "shiny" luck, as I have found quite a few shinies over the years, sometimes even the same species twice! I don't use any of them, though. I just keep them boxed as collective "trophies" or something.
I have never played Pokemon Conquest, and I have no idea what this is about.
As for Pokemon Ranger, I enjoyed both the first game and Shadows of Almia, though they were extremely frustrating at times, especially the first one. The first Ranger game was the hardest in my opinion. I also fully completed the Almia Browser, and captured that fucking Regigigas at last (it is a pain to catch in all the games it has appeared in). The only thing I left is the special events, which I don't have access to, since emulators don't support Wi-Fi (yet). I haven't played Guardian Signs much, because it is a "heavy" (as I call it) game, and I don't have the fastest PC, so I can't tell much about it. The thing that bugs me about Pokemon Ranger (especially the first game) is that you can't keep the Pokemon you capture.
Also, I think that Pokemon Ranger: Shadows of Almia is the first Pokemon game where the player can die.

Nah man I don't give a shit. Whatever you got.
Fucker's got a Relaxed nature with Unaware as its ability, it's also got Curse and Recover and has perfect IVs in HP, Attack and Defense so it'll be competitively useful if you're into that sorta thing.
You want a nickname on it? My FC is 2492 4175 3923, by the way.
Donkarasu: Complaining about TPCI skipping SM064 means they also watch the dub version or they are people who only watch the dub, but are aware of every episode when they air in Japan and thus where wanting to see this episode dubbed and got upset it was banned.
Mar 26, 2019 3:26:04 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes, there where people who only watched the original complained about it too, but they're just a part of it.
Mar 26, 2019 17:37:01 GMT -4
Donkarasu: So I understand going against those who made something controversial or are horrible people, but there's no justifying doing it to a good person who's work is innocent simply because you don't like it. You can hate the work without insulting the creator.
Mar 26, 2019 19:13:53 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: And I'll add on that just because one group is loud and pointlessly angry doesn't mean you have to stoop to their level to counter it.
Mar 26, 2019 23:23:44 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Agreed, it's better to just ignore the criticism than letting it get to you. And this also leads to people trying to force new viewers not to watch a certain version of a show simply because they don't like it. Fuck off and let folks decide for themselves.

pkfan: Hey guys I'm planning on doing a Pokemon crossover story with Deadpool, due to the 'Detective Pikach' movie coming out and I was wandering if you guys would have any suggestions for me to use in the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:41:14 GMT -4
pkfan: I mean first off I am going to have Wade completely destroy the fourth wall, and the stuff he's going to say about the franchise and the fanbase as a whole, trust me nothing will be off limits. The title is going to be called 'Alola to The Merc' so yeah.
Mar 28, 2019 20:43:31 GMT -4
pkfan: like I said I'm open to any ideas for the story.
Mar 28, 2019 20:44:00 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Well we haven't really ever covered fanfiction here, but I say that if you have an idea you wanna use, then by all means go for it. Though I say try not to have the satire overtake the plot, it should be used as a supplement after all.
Mar 29, 2019 9:00:54 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Though also you should make sure to post it there instead of here if you do write it out.
Mar 29, 2019 9:01:45 GMT -4
pkfan: Oh trust me I'm going to post it there and as for plot... no comment on that one.

Donkarasu: People can hate silly things without acting like they are offended by it. It's not that hard.

ShiningStarlia: The flaws of XY and XYZ were many, and there's too many to count. The whole reason I believe that transformation exists is because they had recently used the Ash's Charizard card and he had no mega-capable Pokemon on him, and generation 6's gimmick was

ShiningStarlia: super saiyan transformations, and Greninja was popular (Heck I like the frog and his transformation still; characters and mon's can't decide to be overwhelmingly popular) enough that the writer's be like "Lol, we dun goofed. Gen 7 is coming and we
Apr 1, 2019 23:28:45 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: "Fiddled around procrastinating long enough. We write ourselves into a corner so just give the Frog super saiyan powers and lets wrap this up quickly so we can move onto gen 7."
Apr 1, 2019 23:29:55 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Was more of a major pacing issue and they learned their lessons with the Sun and Moon anime. I can only hope that they don't drop the ball now and honestly have the audience feel like there has been true progression on Ash's journey by the end of it.

ShiningStarlia: I have to say, the Bewear Kite comedy in the most recent episode was pure gold!
Apr 15, 2019 12:07:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, I love the clever nod to the games where Ryuki mentions the problems with his baby-like face which is why he hides it the way like we see. However, while it isn't really brought up here, the way his actual eyes are shown does show that youthful
