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.
ShiningStarlia: I remember her voicing a blind kid who was healed by Fat Buu back in Z. And that must've been like, almost 20 years ago I think!

Donkarasu: It's funny, despite Ribrianne getting so much hate (not me, I think she's an entertaining character and love the Magical Girl parody Toei added with her and her team mates) people were excited to hear that Veronica Taylor was voicing Ribrianne.
Dec 6, 2018 6:04:19 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: In a way though. I personally have no problem with her and think her magical girl parody is hilarious and her transformation is meant to look hideous that even in-universe Vegeta couldn't bring himself to punch her when she tried to use Rollout on him.

ShiningStarlia: Though considering how much screentime she soaks up, I can see where most of the complaints come from. Then again, one can say the same thing about the Saiyans (U6 and U7) so who am I to complain? Haha.

Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: I think the forum's banner pic should be changed to Tsareena's butt closeup from today's episode. Pokemopolis thrives on easy-to-take-out-of-context stuff like that.

Donkarasu: So have been hearing Movie 21 has a heart warming story, it's not another movie that shoehorns in a Mythical and/or Legendary Pokémon for the sake of views, but rather their use in the plot is respectable, all characters get to do something notable, etc.
Dec 9, 2018 9:41:38 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: While that's true, it did still default to the whole "mythical/legendary hates humans until it meets Ash and friends" formula. Some parts of the old formula just had to stick around.
Dec 10, 2018 21:52:31 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: Everything else was fresh and well-done, though. And though I trash the music (the only weak point of the movie, and boy is it an Achilles' Heel; that is except for the dub's ending song), the movie itself is spectacular.
Dec 10, 2018 21:54:07 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Actual so-called-music that deserves to be called "noise" is whatever 4kids used in their dub for One Piece. Music you don't like, but can still clearly hear the instruments, should be called "bad music", calling it "noise" is just a petty insult.
Dec 14, 2018 12:09:50 GMT -4
Donkarasu: There were no instruments used for the 4kids' One Piece dub music, it was all synthesizers.
Dec 14, 2018 12:13:09 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Also that dub of that thing which when I showed Ryu the Japanese verison of long ago he said it was fine, but when I brought it up again, Ryu got all aggressive and started saying the original version was bad, despite the dub having all the flaws.
Dec 14, 2018 12:17:09 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: You never showed me that thing any more than once. And also, you showed me it in a failed attempt to make me like something about the JP version.
Dec 14, 2018 12:29:39 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Yes I did actually, I showed it to you to show you that when the narrator started singing it wasn't like in Brother Bear, like you thought (when the song was put over one character explaining something to another) but rather she was singing with them.
Dec 14, 2018 18:16:26 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Only you believe it was to get you to like the original, while I was just correcting your misinformation.
Dec 14, 2018 18:18:09 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: That first time was just a correction (and back then, the JP version hadn't fully earned my utter abhorrence). The second time was an attempt to sway me.
Dec 14, 2018 19:35:55 GMT -4
Donkarasu: No it wasn't, it was me having to get this thing out of my mind and so the best way was to let it out and share my thoughts with others. I mean by that logic, I guess you telling me that Popplio says "Arwoo" and Ashimari doesn't is you forcing me to like
Dec 15, 2018 6:14:45 GMT -4
Donkarasu: the dub voice and sway me away from the Japanese one, despite the fact that Popplio only goes "Pop! Pop!" and I have listen to Ashimari's voice more than enough to fully confirm it says what I said it does. But don't worry, I won't make that assumption.
Dec 15, 2018 6:26:40 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Oh and by the way, I do like the dub voice, but for a different reason from why I like the Japanese one.
Dec 15, 2018 6:30:30 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: All in all that was a good two parter: wish it lasted longer! And as for Dragonball Super, goodness it was great hearing Veronica Taylor again. She used bits of her May voice in the most recent dub episode.
Dec 16, 2018 12:35:04 GMT -4
Ryu Taylor, Dub Lover: HUGE dub-related news: Matori's dub name (or rather, only name since the dub kept her name as Matori) has finally been said in a dub episode.
