  1. (Credit to the fine folks of the PUCL community for inspiring this game.) New rule, please read: Here's how this game works: one person starts by thinking of a Pokemon, and noting a fact about it (ideally one shared with many Pokemon, such as it learning a move like Helping Hand.) Then other participants can take a guess of what Pokemon it might be- and after at least one person has guessed, the person who knows the Pokemon will confirm if the guess[es] are right or wrong, and then give another fact about the Pokemon. The facts should get increasingly specific as this process continues- starting off with moves, egg groups, and place in an evolutionary line, but eventually moving onto abilities and typings and whatnot. Ideally, your guesses should be based on your innate Pokemon knowledge, so use of external information sources is discouraged but of course can't be prevented. When somebody does guess the Pokemon correctly, they get to think of a new Pokemon and new questions. There is a limit of 10 facts. If nobody gets it in 10, then whoever guessed most recently can do the next mon/facts. Because of this, the 10th question should be made to make the answer quite obvious, but not outright reveal it. (For example, if the answer was Plusle, you could say "It's not Minun.") Also, if the person presenting the facts fails to answer guesses within 24 hours, then this responsibility falls upon whoever guesses most recently/whoever feels like picking it up. Because this needs to be even more complex it'll be fun, I'll also keep track of who's been guessing correctly. If your guess was on the first fact, you'll get 10 points, and if it was on the last, you'll get 1. Leaderboards: I suppose I'll kick us off here: #1: This Pokemon learns the move Peck.
  2. What's your favorite main series cry? Why? Is it original? (gen 1-5) or updated? (gen 6-7) My favorite cry is....well...the Pokemon name is embarrassing....I call the Pokemon "Evil" instead of using the name :/ Hmm some Pokemon don't have a good explanation for their cries so there are a few exceptions.
  3. I am offering to fuse any and all Pokémon sprites. That is all. Examples of my work: Form Pokémon to fuse: Base Pokémon: Palette: Other Comments: !!!!RULES!!!! I have school, so if I don't get your fusion done immediately, please understand. I will fuse up to seven Pokémon. I will not fuse anything of a vulgar nature. Ex.: Were I asked to attach male genitalia to a Pokecreation, I would refuse your request, and would continue to refuse your requests for a probational period of time. If you post the pokecreation or its likeness anywhere on the internet, I require you give credit where it is due. You may make only one request, and must wait until I have completed the first to ask for another. If you'd like me to redo it, please ask politely, but I will not redo it 2 days after its completion.

  5. Alola! From the Pokestadium BATTLE FACTORY 2.0 Welcome to the second-ever Pokestadium Battle Factory! For those of you who remember the original, we can basically get right into it, and for those who don't remember/weren't around, the description from the first carries across the basic idea still- "The Pokestadium Battle Factory is a tournament that, as you might have guessed, is largely based on the Battle factory challenge from the gen 3 and 4 games. In the traditional Battle Factory fashion, you won't be battling with your own Pokemon or sets. Rather, you'll choose from a variety of pre-selected Pokemon and movesets. Unlike the traditional Battle Factory, however, these battles will be 6v6 on Pokemon showdown (set in anything goes) so you'll have a lot more Pokemon to choose from. For each slot of your team, there will be three Pokemon with pre-made sets for you to choose from. These pre-selected sets will be sent to you in a PM upon the starting date of the tournament of, and you'll have three full days to confirm your selection. Like the last time, there's some quirks you should keep in mind, though of course by nature of us being on the cutting edge of a new generation, they're a little different than before: If you'd like, upon successfully defeating an opponent in battle, you can PM me and ask to replace one of the Pokemon on your team, and I'll PM you three more sets that can be used in its place. If none of the sets seem better than the one you're currently using, however, you do have the option to decline. (Your time to make a decision on this is basically just until your battle is arranged with your next opponent.) However, now, there is an added alternative to this! An actual feature of the original Battle Factory was scouting your opponent's team, and if you don't feel like swapping out one of your Pokemon, you can also scout your next opponent's team a bit. You can either ask me for a broad generalization of what kind of moves and overall build they have, or the specific set of one of their Pokemon. (when asking for a specific set, ask something like "The set of their fastest Pokemon?" or "The set of their Z-move Pokemon?") Round 1 bracket: Fill out this microscopic form to join in on the fun! Please do provide any questions you may have in addition to your form, and good luck attempting to dethrone current frontier brain, @Yunn Goos!

  9. I don't know what happened to my first version of this but it is back again! And this time I actually have a plot in mind. Character sheet is: Name: Species: Type*: Gender: Age**: Appearance: Moveset***: *add a picture of your Fakemon here* *Feel free to create your own types. **Age is not required. ***Feel free to create your own moves. Here is my character. Keep in mind that you can only Roleplay as a fan-made Pokemon you made yourself. Name:Canar Species:Canar, Paper Canary Pokemon Type:Paper/Flying Gender: Female Age: N/A Appearance: Canar is an origami bird who has one upside-down yellow V on Each of it's wings. On the tail, legs, and lower beak, there are small patches of yellow. The face consists of two eyes that always look mad though Canar is not always mad despite that. Moveset: Tackle, Quick Attack, Protect, Peck. Plot: Altaria and her friends went to Sinnoh and decided to make an experiment where they create their own Pokemon. Though this was a success, it angered Arceus and he meant to punish Altaria and her friends and destroy the Fakemon. But that failed because Two Pokemon of Sinnoh have Arceus with them. The two Pokemon are not yet known, and the whereabouts of the Fakemon's creators were unknown from that point on. But now it's up to those Fakemon to save the Sinnoh region before there IS no more Sinnoh region! The picture is one of Canar and also I forgot the rules :/ Rules: All rules from PS apply to this and there are some other rules too: - You can't be a legendary Fakemon because Altaria and her friends did not make any legendaries. - Your moveset has to be reasonable (for example, you can't start with an attack with a base power over 60, and you can't start with a OHKO attack.) - Your character has to be an original idea, not similar to those of a real Pokemon. - No cursing, not even the two curses that are allowed in PS! 3 strikes and you are out! And with the cursing, ONE strike and you are out!
  10. Why, it's the Pokestadium Advent Calendar What is an advent calendar, you might ask? You see, it's a special kind calendar that tracks the 24 days of December before Christmas, which usually contains chocolate or ornaments or some other kinda cool stuff for each day. Of course, there's probably a lot more interesting historical and religious significance to it, but I don't know it, and with any luck, you guys don't care! So, a more important question is, what's the Pokemon-focused forum equivalent to an advent calendar? Well, for all 24 days leading up until jingle day, a question regarding some aspect of Pokemon will be posted. You then, uh, answer it! And it's fun! I swear! Regardless of the December holiday of your choice! (I personally have the strongest religious connection to National Cotton Candy day on the 7th.) So, the advent calendar question for December 17th... What is your favorite Water-type starter?
  11. A foreword: this RP was inspired by the concept around which the Augment RP was based, for whatever small handful of you might even know what that is, which was shown to me by CP. I’m not going to say this is a reboot, copy, or in any way affiliated with Augment, nor was Augment the original creator of this concept, but it was the inspiration for this RP. In summery, this is a fusion based Pokemon RP. Think ReBURST, except not like ReBURST at all. The world is in trouble, but nobody but you and your employers know how or why. How you chose to address this poblem, be it with violence or diplomacy, however, is entirely up to you. That all being said, I present Pokemon: Synthesis! RULES -All standard Pokestadium rules and, by extension, PS’s RP section rules apply. Breaking these rules will be treated as breaking this RP’s rules. -I will allow cursing, though nothing that goes beyond PS’s set language rules. -Godmodding, powerplaying, bunnyhopping, and all other strains of unfair play are strictly banned, especially in battle. Nobody enjoys dealing with excessive dodging, every hit being critical, and the like. Even against NPCs perfect battles are boring and come off as more obnoxious than impressive. -When creating and playing your character, please avoid Mary Sue behavior. Seriously. Don’t. -One liners are not allowed under any circumstances, as they are difficult to play off of and make RPing tedious. -Up to two characters are allowed per player. If significant activity picks up, I may raise this to accommodate. -No Legendaries, including minor bst 600 and below ones. In the future, special events may show up where players will have an opportunity to catch a Legendary, but starting with one will not be permitted. *Side note, beyond this Legendary limit, there are no hard restrictions on how many/what Pokemon you can use, or the moves they can learn given that it is a legal set that falls within the beginning perimeters I set (this includes the Alola dex, such as Pokemon like Mimikyu or Komala, however I expect good reason for an Alolan Pokemon to be in Kalos should you take this path). The Pokemon you own should make sense, though. A trainer with only one badge should probably not have a Garchomp with five other Pokemon to boot. Do not abuse the freedom I am giving you. -Only up to three Pokemon may have a strong enough bond to allow fusion when you start, and typically, it will be less than this. As the RP progresses, if I see significant character growth and interaction with a player’s Pokemon, I will grant them “bonded” status at their request. If a bonded Pokemon evolves or a new Pokemon can fuse, you will have to find a Pokecenter at which you can receive a new SynthChip from Chimera Corp. to adjust accordingly. -If you have read the rules, put a synonym for “fast” in the other section of your character sheet. CHARACTER SHEET (please, please, please delete bracketed text. Also, be sure to PM them to me, we no longer accept sheets in the RP thread) Username: Name: (First and last, please!) Gender: Age: (Nothing under 14 please, it just wouldn’t make sense for a 10 year old to be hired by a large scale organization to hunt down highly dangerous monsters) Appearance: (Text preferred, but a picture is acceptable. If you use a picture, however, I still expect a few lines of text detailing things that can’t be seen, e.g. height and the like. Otherwise I expect a word count of at least 150, or roughly four lines [characters submitted prior to the adjustment of this rule are not subject to it, and do not have to edit their sheets] do not hesitate to be as descriptive as you can!) Personality: (At least 225 word count, or roughly 6 lines please.) History: (Also at least 225. Please do not leave anything out or be unnecessarily vague for the sake of “mystery,” other players should not be confused ooc regarding your character’s origins.) Other: Pokemon: Species: Name: (Note that your Pokemon are not required to have a name, and many trainers do in fact opt to let Pokemon keep their base names. Up to you to decide how your character would regard Pokemon names.) Current Moves: (Anime rules - you are not restricted to just four moves, and may learn more as the RP progresses. Starting Pokemon, however, may only have up to five moves, two of which may be egg moves (must be from the same parent obviously), and one TM move if you so choose, or any combination of these. Additionally, as this is more close to the anime than the games in terms of mechanics, bear in mind moves do behave somewhat differently. Otherwise poor moves like Tackle and Slash are far more viable, and moves like Ice Beam and Flamethrower, while still quite good, are not the OHKO powerhouse moves they are in game. I am not going to restrict what moves you can learn base power wise, but please don’t abuse this.) Currently bonded?: (Yes or no, can this Pokemon and its trainer fuse?) Other: (Anything else worth noting about this Pokemon?) (Rinse and repeat for as many Pokemon as you have.) --- Spot reserved for Gruffin (the RP section is not quite as slow as I thought it was, but still, I'm going to have to question how much reserved spots matter anyways and yet here I am still doing them for no real reason).
  12. Just so you know you can only roleplay with your own character (not an already-made Pokemon or fusion.). And please don't ask me why I used a Mega Evolving Altaria GIF. I love roleplays so please do this.
  13. pokemon Dapper Sylveon

    From the album PC's Pixels

    Context for my avatar. No real extensive lore behind this, I was simply suggested to do a Sylveon, and about halfway through I started experimenting with its design and before I knew it I had invented a personal alt form of Sylveon. It is not much different from regular Sylveon, although it has an added Dark typing, and its SpA and SpD are switched.
  14. VGC17: Rise of (falling) Hail

    Hail's always been my favorite weather condition. And it's also been the worst, basically since it was introduced. In gen 3, the hail weather condition was added, likely in an attempt to make Ice types more viable. Now, Ice had always been an important type, but more as coverage on different types- the vast majority of ice types themselves have generally seen little use since genwun (where blizzard hit a lot more often and there was no pesky steel types) due to their horrible defensive matchups, being weak to three of the most common offensive types (also steel lol,) and having only one resistance. Now, to the main point, let's walk through a not at all brief history of hail: Gen 3: Hail exists, but isn't really used at all. It doesn't boost the damage of Ice type attacks (like sun with fire or rain with water) and while it does make Blizzard hit almost all of the time, this is only really worth it in doubles where it still requires too much setup anyway. Chip damage isn't enough to make up for lack of a damage boost, especially considering that the amount dealt by harmful weather such as sandstorm was lowered significantly from gen 2. Biggest weakness is glaring lack of useful abilities- no equivalent to Chlorophyll or Swift swim, and Snow cloak and Ice body are mostly worthless on a type meant to be on the attack. Gen 4: Hail is basically as bad as it is in gen 3. But, there's Abomasnow, and he's actually pretty good. (Well, niche use in OU, fairly big in VGC though, especially 2010 when Kyogre is the big threat.) However, Abomasnow's hail is basically just used to boost the accuracy of its own Blizzards, and replace opposing weather with hail (but mostly rain due to its grass typing.) Despite Abomasnow's usefulness, I'd still consider hail bad at this point because it's can't be used to support the team in any way (besides removing other weather conditions, but that role could also be played by the other two, so it's really more of a cloud 9 effect) so you basically still can't make a good "hail" team. Gen 5: Flying types and Dragons are massively popular in both VGC12 and VGC13. Hail teams exist in any form yet? Not really. While choice scarf Vanilluxe saw some use in VGC12 to wipe away genies and dragons with Blizzard, this was seldom backed up with hail to to no users of snow warning being available in Unova. Abomasnow is an incredibly important Pokemon in VGC13, but again, it isn't used in conjunction with any other ice types and is mostly just used for spread ice damage and good matchup against dragons, genies and water. You didn't see any hail teams here either primarily due to there being no better ones than Abomasnow- there was Weavile for sure, but despite being Ice it doesn't benefit from hail. Because lol hail. And besides, using another Ice type along with Abomasnow would be begging to be knocked out unless you could immediately clear all threats on the opposing team from the field. Gen 6: Gen 6 wasn't far off from gen 5- there was a weather nerf, but that didn't have a huge impact (though it did have some) on VGC since you don't see the long battles there that you more often than not do in OU. I enjoyed using a hail team of sorts in gen 6, but since there was only two Pokemon (Abomasnow and Rotom-F) that even benefited from it (and their only benefit was blizzard and seldom useful chip damage) and the rest of the team was devoted to covering the weaknesses and making sure they could do damage. So yeah, it wasn't exactly a weather team in the sense that a Rain, Sun, or Sand team was. Ice-weak Pokemon such as the genies, Garchomp and Amoonguss are very popular in VGC14/15, but hail-boosted Blizzard is far from the only way of dealing with them. (also heatran basically needed to be dealt with consistently in vgc15 so that was annoying.) Aurorus, another hail setter, was added, but is way too slow and has none of the defensive merits of Abomasnow so it's basically not even there. Gen 7: I'd argue gen 7 has finally made Hail on par with other types of weather- it did this through adding some usable new hail setters, Vanilluxe and more notably Alolan Ninetales, the first ever Pokemon with an ability that can really get some use out of hail in Alolan Sandslash (and beartic I guess) with Slush rush, and another move that can only be pulled off in hail, Aurora veil (a highly useful combo of light screen and reflect.) With these new tools, you can actually build a team that really makes use of hail. Now, don't get me wrong, you probably won't be running more than two ice types, and they'll typically be the only ones who directly benefit from hail through abilities or moves, but that's standard of pretty much every type of weather team (besides rain in 6v6 singles.) It'll be interesting to see how hail strategies develop as the meta evolves and currently unavailable tools *cough*abomasnowwhen*cough* become legal for use. TO CONCLUDE: YOU ACTUALLY KIND OF HAVE A REASON TO USE AND KEEP HAIL UP BESIDES WANTING TO USE ABOMASNOW SO THAT'S COOL HAVE A SAMPLE TEAM FOR VGC17 MAYBE HAVE SOME FUN REPLACE WHATEVER SINCE WHO REALLY KNOWS WHAT'S GOING ON AT THIS POINT Please do share any ideas or questions regarding our new king hail o3o
  15. Here's the minigame directions 1. Go to Bulbapedia.Bulbagarden.net 2. Click random until you get a pokemon 3. Share your partner pokemon!
  16. I've only been on this place for two days... The only way I've gotten money is from logging in. It said that logging in was the only way to get money. There is leveling up in this game so maybe if you help a person level up thier Pokémon you get money in return... Is this good?
  17. Adventures in genwun (featuring Blastoyse) is a comic that originated here on Good 'ol Pokestadium. I only got to make a few comics before the forum closed, but I continued the series on Pokepavillion and other Pokemon forums, and thanks to the support of those who read it, over the months I actually started making them regularly, and it managed to grow. This thread will be for updates on his adventures and general discussion/commentary as well. Here are just a few examples of his adventures, rises, falls, lawsuits, anti-Venussor propaganda, etc.: Did you like them? Did you laugh? Did you cry? Did you get chronic nausea? All of the above? I sure hope so. Feel free to comment any of these emotions you may have felt and other things relating to these comics here, that's what the thread's for. DOUBLE NOTE: CREDITS TO THE HONORABLE AND GREAT SCIZ FOR THE RETURN OF VENUSSOR THING, HE IS VERY WELL THE BEST PERSON ALIVE ON GOD'S GREEN EARTH AND IF YOU NEED SOMETHING FOR A COMIC I RECOMMEND BOTHERING HIM.
  18. While we're probably pretty used to the idea of Pokemon, especially since they're typically portrayed as companions, they can at times seem, uh, monstrous. Draining blood, controlling minds, and even stealing souls- there's at least one Pokemon that exemplifies most common fears. So, which Pokemon do you think the thought of dealing with in real life is most scary? I look for a Pokemon's more gruesome behaviors in Pokedex descriptions, as they tend to get a bit more "colorful" than the main games or anime. Because of this, Jellicent sorta freaks me out. I'm not a huge fan of Jellyfish in real life, though that's mostly due to the stinging part (and the fact that they generally aren't pleasant to touch.) However, with Jellicent, it's even worse- apparently, their favorite food is life energy, and ships that venture into their habitat are dragged to the bottom of the ocean (which they somehow use to build a ghastly underwater "castle".) Being a person who's quite fond of having life energy, and considers drowning to be probably one of the worst ways to die, I'd avoid getting anywhere near a Jellicent at all costs.
  19. Pokken tournament's coming out rather soon, and although we don't know everything about it yet, we do know there's quite a sizable amount of fighters in the game (and it seems almost certain that the roster we currently know will be the one it releases with.) So, from the information currently available to us, what character in Pokken do you think you'll be playing/enjoying most? Currently, I find Machamp to be the most appealing of all the available characters. Of course, I just happened to like him best as a Pokemon out of all the fighters (although there is a bit of a toss-up with Garchomp, I suppose,) as I just love how comically buff and out-of-place he looks compared to the other playable Pokemon. But there's also a good chance I'll like him the most as a fighter. I tend to gravitate toward the heavy, harder-hitting characters, and Machamp definitely seems to be the heaviest and hardest-hitting out of all the Pokemon in the roster. Also since I'll probably just be jamming buttons until I learn any combos anyway I might as well increase my odds by having four fists As for characters I'd hope to see added as DLC in the future (it was said that they weren't planning in DLC, but they said the same thing for Smash and I think even Mario Kart 8, so hey who knows,) I think it would be really awesome and different to see some sort of full-out aerial Pokemon get a shot. This is largely because my favorite thing about Pokken is how it's made types of creatures you would never imagine in a fighting game (such as Chandelure and Suicune) playable. My main picks for this would probably be Pidgeot, Staraptor, and Skarmory. Pidgeot is of course the original bird Pokemon, so it would certainly make sense. However, Staraptor is a bit cooler-looking (and from what I can tell, seems to be a more popular) and also seems a more agile than Pidgeot, so it might better transition into being a fighting game character. Skarmory isn't as standard a choice, but does have those sharp, threatening wings that would allow for more different types of attacks. So, what are your favorite current/potential characters for Pokken?
  20. The Pokestadium BATTLE FACTORY The Pokestadium Battle Factory is a tournament that, as you might have guessed, is largely based on the Battle factory challenge from the gen 3 and 4 games. In the traditional Battle Factory fashion, you won't be battling with your own Pokemon or sets. Rather, you'll choose from a variety of pre-selected Pokemon and movesets. Unlike the traditional Battle Factory, however, these battles will be 6v6 on Pokemon showdown (set in OU) so you'll have a lot more Pokemon to choose from. For each slot of your team, there will be three Pokemon with pre-made sets for you to choose from. These pre-selected sets will be sent to you in a PM upon the starting date of the tournament of, and you'll have three full days to confirm your selection. However, these Pokemon have a few quirks you should keep in mind: If you'd like, upon successfully defeating an opponent in battle, you can PM me and ask to replace one of the Pokemon on your team, and I'll PM you three more sets that can be used in its place. If none of the sets seem better than the one you're currently using, however, you do have the option to decline. (Your time to make a decision on this is basically just until your battle is arranged with your next opponent.) Round 1 bracket: Fill out this ridiculously tiny form if you'd like to join in on the fun: Feel free to post any questions you may have in addition to your form, and happy battling!

  23. Recently, two new Pokemon, Passimian and Oranguru were announced. In my personal editorial opinion that you've undoubtedly desperately needing in blog form, I think they're pretty cool. Because, you know, monkeys. But, these primates aren't an interesting addition simply because their designs- with Passimian boasting one of the most interesting abilities we've gotten so far, and Oranguru with a new move that already seems extremely useful. The seemingly massive potential of these two new introductions have prompted me to create this new (hopefully recurring) variety of my usual competitive claptrap. It's essentially what I usually do, except, you know, entirely hypothetical since we don't have all the given information on the mons/meta yet. I feel like I've explained myself sufficiently, so without any further ado, let's get to the bottom of this monkey business!!!!!!!!! like and sub (also considering that both of these new additions are doubles-only, and also because it's the best, this review will be almost entirely VGC focused) Passimian's Receiver Passimian's new Receiver ability allows it to gain the ability of its ally in battle after they've fainted. Sort of like a more controlled trace- it seems like it could certainly have some interesting partners that could potentially make for a powerful combination. Here are a few of the ones I've thought up so far: Although I'm sure we'll all real tired of it now (and it almost certainly won't be allowed in VGC17, as it's always the regional dex the first year and I doubt Lando will be in it) Landorus-t seems like it has some good potential as a partner for Passimian. Intimidate support would likely be beneficial to Passimian, since it doesn't look particularly bulky, and Lando's coverage will likely help out with Steel/Rock types, which are usually troublesome for Normal types like Passimian. And, if Lando should be KO'd before Passimian, then the opposing Pokemon must suffer yet another annoying attack drop. Lando-t also gets explosion, so it could evaluate the threats on the field, utilize its coverage properly, then release a powerful explosion attack (and anything that manages to live will have to take another attack drop from Passimian.) Megas haven't been confirmed for SM, but hey you know it's all hypothetical anyway so who cares. Mega Medicham has never been a superstar in doubles, likely due to its poor bulk and the extremely risky High Jump Kick being its most powerful move. If you were to use it, however, Passimian could certainly be a good choice for a team member. Considering its devastating power, Mega Medicham is like a lightning rod for opponent's attacks, so it realistically won't last much more than two turns or so after the fake out. However, once it's fallen, there's Passimian to gain the Pure Power ability and carry on its legacy- while we don't know Passimian's stats, it's most likely some sort of physical attacker, and even if it has a fairly standard attack stat (90-100) Pure power will make it on par with some of the heaviest physical hitters in the game. Fairly straightforward explanation here- Protean is an amazing, Greninja's a pretty good Pokemon, with its main flaw being that it dies really fast. Passimian capitalizes on that flaw by taking Protean on itself and (assuming it has even decent coverage) becoming much harder to deal with. Passimian would probably need to get Fake out or something for them to work together that effectively considering that both will probably be lacking in bulk and thus vulnerable to priority, but I can still see it going alright. Mega Beedrill isn't really a good Pokemon in doubles. Though insanely powerful against foes that don't resist it, Beedrill dies to everything unless it U-turns out and makes another mon vulnerable. But, at the very least, Passimian takes advantage of it dying so easily by taking its highly useful Adaptability and powering up its Fighting moves. Plus, Passimian looks like it could very well learn Quick guard somehow, so I wouldn't be surprised if it could help out Mega Beedrill by protecting it from deadly priority attacks as well. Perish trap, though basically non-existent in VGC16, wasn't a totally uncommon tactic in other gen six VGCs. It's a strategy that revolves around having Mega Gengar (or less often another mon, like Politoed with Gothitelle for the trapping) use Perish song, then using a combination of moves like Protect, Disable, and Encore to ensure that your Pokemon stay alive and can successfully switch out of the Perish Song. And of course, thanks to Shadow tag, provided you don't switch out too early both opponents will instantly faint. Passimian could certainly be beneficial to this strategy, particularly if it gets support moves like Encore- however, the main thing it brings to the table is that even if Gengar dies (which can still happen since opponents will usually go all-out on it so they can be free) the trap will continue to be in effect as long as Passimian remains, almost guaranteeing the perish trap is successful if it's been executed properly. Vivillon isn't a very common Pokemon in doubles, as even though it gets an amazing support movepool, a Bug/Flying typing means it's too vulnerable to even operate without a sash. Regardless, it has two abilities that could be of use to Passimian- Compound eyes and Friend guard. If Passimian gets any lower-accuracy, higher-power moves, then Compound eyes will be a huge benefit once Vivillon bites the dust (and has hopefully used Sleep powder/Set up Tailwind beforehand.) Friend guard is also a great ability, which a bulkier Passimian could help out its next partner with quite a bit. kill urself with Double-edge and there's plenty of parental bond to go around lol Oranguru's Instruct Oranguru's currently unique move, Instruct, allows an ally to use the attack they already used this turn yet again. We don't have a lot of potentially crucial details on this one, such as whether or not the move will be successful if Oranguru goes first, if the opponent's attacked on the last turn but not this one, or even its negative/posititve priority. Regardless, I'd asusme a lot of these strategies could work anyway: Heatran has always been an unbelievably good Pokemon in doubles, with some solid attacks and an amazing typing. Though it's not the fastest and has a 4x weakness to ground, odds are if you can't hit Heatran for SE damage, you can't touch it. Anyhow, Oranguru could work well with Heatran considering that it gets the move Lava Plume- a decently powered Fire STAB spread move that Oranguru will take no damage from. However, the main benefit is that Lava Plume has a 30% to burn both targets, and if Oranguru uses Instruct on Heatran, it's something like a 51% chance for a burn on each target, a big problem for your opponent's physical attackers. Same strat as Heatran, but with Discharge and something like Zapdos or Thundurus- not sure if it would be as good, considering Paralysis isn't always as crippling a status and more stuff's immune to it, but could still certainly make for some good speed control. Exploud deals ridiculous spread damage with Boomburst, an extremely powerful move, with its only drawback being damaging its ally (though this is fortunately null thanks to Oranguru's Telepathy ability.) With instruct, you'll be able to get out a mighty STAB Boomburst twice in one turn, likely taking out everything that doesn't resist/has really high special defense. Only problem is, Exploud is pretty slow, but considering that Oranguru is a psychic type it will almost certainly get Trick room, turning this yet another drawback into the pair's favor. Similar to Exploud- Sheer force boosted Heat Wave is extremely spammable due to its immense power and spread status, and Oranguru allows you to use it twice in one turn. Mega Camerupt is ridiculously slow however, so Trick room would be absolutely essential to making this one work (especially since as far as we know, Instruct only works if the attack was used in the same turn, so Oranguru would probably move before Camerupt and the move would fail.) Another mon that heavily relies on Trick room, I realize, but double-STAB Earthquakes and Rock Slides are too fantastic under Trick room to not be mentioned. Earthquake deals good damage to both targets while not scratching Oranguru, and a second Rock slide will likely result in more KOs and make opponents flinch even more frequently. Lando-T would also work better if you didn't want to run Trick room. Abomasnow is one of my favorite doubles Pokemon- deals with some of the most common types, has one of the best moves in the game with hail-aided Blizzard, works fantastically under trick room, and can go for a more offensive sash/life orb variant or go for the bulk of the Mega. Considering Ice's great coverage, two Blizzards (or Earthquake if you've got TR up and there are meddlesome fire types about) in one turn with the help of Oranguru's instruct can be devastating for your opponents, and an instructed Giga drain that would allow Mega Abomasnow to heal even more health could occasionally be of use as well. double double-edge or earthquake kills everything and oranguru doesn't even take damage lol Well, that's about all the conjecture I can muster right now. If you have thoughts or your own ideas on the primate bros, please do comment and share them! Until next time, then! *climbs nearest tree*
  24. Hey everyone! I just wanted to say that I absolutely love drawing pictures! I'm finally ready to show everyone some of the things that I like to make! Well, I've actually been ready for a while, but now I've found out how to do it. Now, these are all hand drawn by me, so please don't say anything rude. I like constructive criticism, but don't please don't say anything like "His hair is awful" because that's just mean and I already say all of that stuff to myself. I mainly draw gijinkas, which are pretty much people that look like Pokemon. So, here are a few of my favorite drawings I've made. (They're not in any order) ((WARNING! All images are very large!)) I will do requests of Pokemon only. I will pick whichever gender I want and it may take a while for me to put them up.
