Two special forms of Vivillon to be distributed on Pokémon X and Y; PokéBall Pattern Vivillon and Fancy Pattern Vivillon (information from Serebii.net)-
A new event has been announced. Making its first appearance worldwide, the special PokéBall Pattern Vivillon is to be given at the Pokémon Center in Paris from June 4th to June 21st. This Vivillon is Level 12 and comes with the moves Stun Spore, Gust, Light Screen and Struggle Bug. It is unknown if this event will make it out of France.
It has been revealed that the next special form of Vivillon has been announced. This form, the Fancy Pattern, is to be distributed when over 100 million Pokémon have been traded on the GTS and is to tie in with the fact that Vivillon is the most traded Pokémon. The number is currently sitting at 85 million so only has 15 million to go. It is said that the distribution will be worldwide. The actual means of distribution has yet to be confirmed but we'll post as soon as it is
I thank you all for your time here, even if there wasn't much going on. But now it's time to move on...
This has been tweaked in Guaridan Signs, you only lose a Pokémon you capture if you use it to clear a target or it gets hit by a Pokémon attack.
You mean "Guardian", right?
I vaguely remember anything about Guardian Signs. I did not play it much, I stopped playing a bit after Cranidos' capture in the cave if I recall correctly, but I do remember that this issue got better as more Ranger games came out. At least, this indeed holds true for the first Ranger game and Shadows of Almia.
Yes, if time runs out in the sinking of cargo ship mission. Heck, the Pokémon Ranger games are rather violent (especially the 2nd and 3rd ones).
I remember the cargo ship! It has been years since I last played Shadows of Almia, so I do not remember the order of the missions. I do recall, though, that some missions were kind of extreme (I do not mean the Rangers' School), even in the first game.
I am not so good with the more strategic method of training. Got any help on how to raise my Deino?
Like which stats of hers should I raise in Super Training (I'm guessing one should be Special Attack)?
Truth is, I don't know much of the sixth Generation metagame. The only advice I could give you is that since it is a Modest nature, don't even bother with physical attacks like Earthquake, Stone Edge, Outrage, Crunch or Superpower. You could maybe use U-Turn if you decide to give it Choice Specs or something for scouting your opponent's team. Your best bets are Draco Meteor, Dragon Pulse, Dark Pulse, Fire Blast, Focus Blast, Substitute, Roost, and maybe Flash Cannon to hit the pesky fairies. As for items, go either with Life Orb, Choice Specs or Leftovers. Pick four of these moves, one of these items, get out there to see what works best for you, and watch out for the newcoming fairies.
As for the stats, usually the best way to go is maxing out Special Attack. So, put 252 EVs on Special Attack, and, from what I've seen so far, people put 252 EVs on Speed as well, and the remaining 4 are put on HP.
I should inform you that most Dragons (especially Hydreigon) have taken quite a downfall since last Generation. Important moves were powered down, such as Draco Meteor and Fire Blast (I call this bullshit), fairies were introduced, new threats, Mega Evolutions etcetera.
That is all the advice I can give. If you want more help, you can lurk in Smogon. They always have a strategy that works fine, both in game and competitively. Although it is outdated, here is the Generation V article for Hydreigon. It may come in handy.

Hydreigon was not one of the top Dragons, mainly thanks to its base 98 Speed. Thanks to it, it fell short against many Pokemon, which prevented it from being a top threat. Salamence, Dragonite (because of Multiscale), the Lati twins, Garchomp, and even Black Kyurem (when allowed) were generally better Dragons to use. That doesn't mean that Hydreigon was bad, though. It was simply outclassed. Furthermore, Hydreigon had a move that could OHKO or 2HKO just about every Pokemon in the game, even Chansey with some prior damage.
I also like Hydreigon, regardless of its competitive value. It, along with a few other Pokemon, is proof that Generation V Pokemon don't completely suck (fuck you Vanilluxe! ), and is a good response to genwunners.
I made a mistake- It wasn't a Vullaby which I traded for Deino, it was another Pokémon who I forgot.
Ironically, in this Generation, thanks to some game mechanic changes, Mandibuzz is generally a better Pokemon to use than Hydreigon... But fuck it. I don't like Mandibuzz at all. I would rather use Hydreigon any day!
I was trading a bunch of Wooper off the other day and I actually got a shitton of great stuff. It's basically where people go to dump all their breeding leftovers.
Even then it's become stupidly easy to get Pokemon with 5 IVs thanks to the Friend Safari and Destiny Knot.
Really? It seems that I am falling behind, and I need some catching up to do! A Pokemon with 5 perfect IVs being a breeding leftover?! I do not own the games, since I can not afford them, and if I know stuff about them like villains, Mega Evolution, metagame and soundtrack, it's because I like to spoil myself by watching related videos or lurking in sites like Bulbapedia or Serebii. So, I learned over time that it is quite easier to obtain shinies and Pokemon with perfect IVs, but I had no idea it would be THAT easy! Also, I thought that Wonder Trade was full of assholes trading away Bunnelby, Fletchling, Flabébé, a worthless HM slave or something like that, hoping to get something good in return, but it seems I was wrong. Well done, humanity!
I still play Pokemon Emerald after all these years, and I occasionally breed. Man, breeding back then was HARD! Everstone had only 50% chance of passing the nature to the offspring, and, if Ditto was present, it ONLY worked with Ditto, and if Ditto was not present, it ONLY worked with the female parent. You would be lucky if the offspring inherited a total of 3 IVs from BOTH parents. Inheriting abilities was unheard of back then. The chances of inheriting the desirable ability was 50-50. Also, there were no hidden abilities and such bullshit. Also, no O-Powers, hatching power and friends. Flame Body or Magma Armor was all you had. That means that if you were to breed something like Dratini, Snorlax, or even worse-Beldum, you were done for. There was no place to look for Pokemon that always had at least two perfect IVs. No Power Bracer, Power Anklet and such. All you had was Macho Brace, which had no effect on breeding, and EV training with only Macho Brace was more time consuming, maybe more than twice as slow compared to other EV training items. Also, no Super Training. Destiny Knot? What's that?

I don't think I've gotten any with 5 IVs off of Wonder Trade, but in most cases you really only need 4, anyway. I'm currently breeding a Wooper and a Ditto with 6 IVs, though. Wonder Trade is still full of crap, but it has good stuff, too. But if you find yourself trading with anyone named, like, Gavin, or Hunter, or Maxwell (anyone with a name that one of THOSE kids from grade school had), then you're probably gonna get something bad. It's pretty amazing how they've tried to simplify breeding down so much, but all I ever hear from people is that they want them to remove the IV mechanic entirely.
Destiny Knot's an item that's been around since like, Gen IV or something. Originally it was a held item that would activate if your Pokemon got affected by Attract and make the opponent attracted as well, but then after X and Y came out some Game Freak developer revealed on their Twitter that the Destiny Knot not passes down 5 IVs from the parents when breeding.
ShiningStarlia: I absolutely have no idea how anyone draws the conclusion that it's bringing forth the Apocalypse. Or a Japanese cartoon show having characters use different forms of Japanese dialect and accents to fit their different cultures is the worst thing ever.

ShiningStarlia: Either way, it's over with, and tomorrow's episode is something more plot before the league episodes start up. Can focus on that instead of losing one's mind over a forgettable filler episode.

Donkarasu: Sorry, I need to say this; When you posted those other forum comments, Ryu, it's clear you were reading what you wanted to read and took me saying that you shouldn't act like your life was ruined by this episode as me saying you shouldn't like it at all.
Jun 24, 2019 4:32:42 GMT -4
Donkarasu: This is why I got so pissed off at you, because you purposely twisted what I had said. In fact, a majority of those comments you posted basically had the correct way to dislike this; calling it dumb or annoying, but without any of all the unnecessary rage.
Jun 24, 2019 4:39:48 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I listened to the full version of the remake for Type: Wild and I found Shōko Nakagawa did a great job.
Jun 25, 2019 12:40:48 GMT -4
Donkarasu: Also way before that (like last week) I heard the remake of Together With The Wind, it was good too.
Jun 25, 2019 12:42:09 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Excellent. I'll get to hearing it whenever I get the chance to.
Jun 25, 2019 16:43:30 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Goodness gracias that type wild remix was amazing! I love how so full of energy it is!
Jul 8, 2019 17:07:22 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Hah, I can't get over how good the Alolan remixed Type: Wild is. I remember when it played during Infernape vs Electivire; if this song got remixed, we're due for something amazingly good and fun. Can't wait!

Donkarasu: I forgot to post the magazine scan and translation for the episode that aired yesterday... Oh well.
Jul 15, 2019 5:35:27 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I had no idea this forum had a block button which hides posts that you can open to see.
Jul 15, 2019 18:12:13 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Huh really. Anyway, enjoyed the newest episode. Ash's ironic tobias moment done accidentally and Mallow & Lana's clash.
Jul 15, 2019 22:01:52 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Rowlet in that Decidueye costume is extremely adorable
Jul 28, 2019 17:04:34 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: You know, THAT was probably the anime's biggest fake-out that I've ever seen and made me go "Wait, what?!" for a couple of minutes until everything was cleared up.
Aug 4, 2019 20:46:02 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: I find it so poetically ironic that even its been weeks after that bait and switch fake-out with Rowlet falling asleep...I still see some circle jerking around a few other boards.
Aug 24, 2019 19:26:39 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: For all the fire that 2016's Kalos League failure drew for Ash losing it down to the wire...never in my wildist imagination would I ever see parts of a community screaming so violently lividly that he should've lost instead.
Aug 24, 2019 19:27:39 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Whether or not the joke was in good taste is up for debate, though I find it quirky and humorous, I wouldn't think people would get this levels of upset.
Aug 24, 2019 19:28:20 GMT -4
ShiningStarlia: Saw the incoming upcoming anime episode clip and a certain old friend we've long missed makes their return! I'm so darn excited!
Sept 20, 2019 22:22:02 GMT -4
Donkarasu: I usually post full summaries for next week's Pokémon episodes on Monday, because that's when the previews show up on YouTube. But this time I decided to post it on the day it was revealed, seeing as that was the ONLY summary for the episode.
