    Friendcodes
    Since the last Pokémon threads were all deleted, the list with Friendcodes is also gone. If anyone still has the list, you can let me know and I'll add it to the OP.

    If someone wants to have their Friendcode added in the OP, just let me know. We can make a new list if the old one is definately gone.

    I've never played pokeman.
    Such a big game, long running too.
    I'm a gamer but never played it.

    From what I understand it's about raising, and fighting your best monsters vs other monsters.

    I have a uncle who is dead now who fought dogs.
    I use to feed them and give them water way back in my teens.

    Is pokeman like this?

    You do fight against others in the game. Nobody dies though. Not a very violent game at all.

    What would you propose as a good introductory game to this universe.

    I have ipad and iphone.

    Is there a game you suggest?

    None of the main games are available on Iphone or Ipad. Only on Nintendo handheld consoles.

    You may be able to get Pokemon shuffle or something on your phone, but that's really just a candy crush like game but with Pokemon icons or something. If you want to play one of the main games, you may want to look into getting a (New) Nintendo 3DS XL. Or if you don't want to do that just yet, maybe get an emulator to play it on your PC. But I 'm afraid I can't help you with that, since I don't play on emulators.

    No monsters die, but let's be real. The losers at minimum get concussed as fuck, and the winners at maximum don't get concussed. They all get captured from freedom and forced into slave fighting with little to no interaction/affection from their owner. It's completely fucked up.

    Sun/Moon is a day 1 buy, though.

    We haven't had a first-stage dual-type starter since Bulbasaur. Too bad it's another grass starter that has a 4x weakness (Torterra, Chesnaught). Still, if the stats and movepool are decent, I may be inclined to pick that little owl.

    Also, I like that the protagonist is taller in the overworld. It's weird to see a running bobblehead in the overworld (XY / ORAS).

    At the moment I'm team fire kitty all the way. If they show the owl evolves into something cool it may change my mind. I think we can all agree that the seal looks stupid as fuck though.

    Also conflicted on the box legendaries. Both look so awesome!


    Biggest thing for me, looks like trainer customization is coming back!

    So what do you think will be the types for the final evolutions of the starters? Maybe Fire/Dark for the cat and probably pure Water for the seal.

    How about the legendaries? I feel Fire/Fairy for the lion and maybe Ghost/Flying for the bat.

    They need to make a generation where the Grass starter is clearly the best. First thing is trying to mitigate of all those weakness. Make it fast with high ATK and/or SpATK or make it Grass/Rock or something.

    That seal better evolve into something awesome. I really like the other two.

    ...and both legendaries are killer.

    Damn, interesting batch of new information.

    I like the designs of the new legends, but I'd have prefered it if they didn't make a fire lion, since we just had Pyroar.

    Starters look decent as well. So far, I'm going for the owl.
