    SPOILERS! Mysteries and Conspiracies of Pokemon

    I can see the logic but to me the way they work is too different to really apply it.

    SPOILERS! Mysteries and Conspiracies of Pokemon

    well worst case they can just import another region's legends. Sinnoh had one million sub legends and still felt the need to import 3 others and then add a new one for Hisui. Or, hell, just reuse the birds again considering they were in XY to begin with. I am still on the A-B-C legendary...

    Ganondorf & Bowser are also playable characters and transform in their final smash, and got those transformations as bosses. There is a reason I brought up mega mewtwo Y and also those 2 in the same conversation here.

    To be fair, if there was a Pokemon boss they probably would have had at least one route actually based around fighting said boss regardless of who it was. & yeah Marx was in Dark World alongside Dracula & Ganon (all 3 had their own areas, though marx's was only tangentially related to Milky...

    I'm guessing it's more because they did not actually care about being thematic & they didn't want that many bosses. So in addition to the 2 new OCs & the Hands as minibosses (who they're already using for Classic mode) you had 2 returning smash originals (one of which got to reuse assets), 2...

    I don't think it would tone down the zigzagging at all, it just puts it in a different spot you'd go Katy on the qest, then Brassius to the east, then Iono a little more to the east then back to the west for Kofu & Larry to Katy west, Brassius east, back over to the qestfor Kofu, then Iono in...

    Honestly every time I've seen Geeta fight (excluding her BB rematch) she typically sent out Kingambit 4th, to the point where I wondered if she had a special AI routine for it and it was like "yeah this gets the point across, watch out!" if that was just coincidental, it's pretty funny

    Honestly even without super mechanics and with generally stronger teams, it still feels slightly deflating. We'll put aside rando rival battles or mid game gyms or lolBugsy. Those are too easy to peck away at. How about Cynthia? I think we can all agree that she's a pretty solid team. High...

    I think it works fine because you get to see their strong pokemon have extra aesthetic things and go 'wow neat' I think the number of people who see "best for last" and go "oh this is how i need to play!" are pretty low. Not like people are out there seeing low team numbers and going "I have to...

    I dunno I think shoving out their best Pokemon the millisecond they can is kind of....dumb? Like oh okay I guess the finale of this battle will be your weaker Pokemon. Great. It just makes sense from a gamefreel perspective to put the best for last.

    I will say "base points" as the official equivalent for our "EVs" makes sense, but also this is a great example how sometimes, after a certain point, as a community you just gotta stick to the ultra-ingrained fan terminology. like imagine if they didnt just throw their hands up and go "fine...

    ok I actually have some issue here I mean first off they're going to use "base stat" for the remainder of the article anyway so you should just still keep it named Base Stat and then have a "official referred to as blahblahblah" but secondly when they speak about Vitamins they speak about...

    April 5-7th 7* raid - Psychic Meganium

    Tried the Malamar method for a solo, but it didn't go so hot. Then tried online and got a team of Skeledirge, Annihilape and Volbeat Despite the Annihilape using Screech after the Contrary went up, it thankfully happened after his first regular screech and he stopped doing it after he died...

    And aside from flavor it was probably locked behind a NPC at the time since it might have been more of a technical limit. I feel like if RPGs at the time ever let you rename anyone you typically had to go to someone else, so not being something they could shove into a menu wouldn't surprise me...

    because level 56+ will still take longer to reach but honestly mostly just like...game feel reasons. After a certain point the "game feel" lands on "okay this is just annoying. I'm annoyed." because in the back of my mind I'm constantly thinking how I already had Dragonite or whatever...

    On the other hand if you zoom in on the 2-stage 500 BST lines.... Houndour evolves into the Houndoom at level 25. But if that's too early generation-wise to really take in, that's fine because.... Clauncher evolves at level 37 Binacle evolves at level 39 Mudbray evolves at level 30 Cufant...

    I can understand why they don't want to fully overhaul a given Pokemon, but evolution levels are definitely something they can and should tweak considering how often they keep wanting to offer them as early/mid-game Pokemon. The "magikarp" style of evolution only works when it's a short period...

    Big and Small SV Victories

    Wait is that how Lycanroc swarms work? They swap out by the time? That's so strange to me, I figured it was like any other form and just picks one.

    Granted it does feel like it'd be more important for Eternatus to show off Eternamax when using Eternabeam so if "we don't want to update and import the old eternamax model for a single move" was a reason, I can see why they wouldn't want to keep the move but cut the actual important part of the...

    I always see people say the gen 8 lines feel incomplete without their G-Maxes but I've never really gotten that. Most of them feel (a split between "what if this but more" and "what if it was jokes". Being mostly-cosmetic probably helps me, but even beyond that I was never really seeing G-Max...
