  1. @Desu I don't speak for everyone obviously but I appreciate the ETAs even when they wrong due to unforeseen complications.
  2. There is apparently an issue with UU and NU being barren when it comes to matchmaking. I don't actually know the extent of the loneliness of these tiers because I have never played them but I have been told you can only find people in UU during ranked and NU never sees any play period. I was trying to think of ways which could encourage people to play these tiers in matchmaking more often and this is what I came up with. At any given time there are X amount of people playing in matchmaking. Let us say that number is 18. If we weigh the prizes for winning based on which tier is getting the highest and lowest percentage of these players then it may encourage people to play the other tiers more. Let me explain. A typical matchmaking prize is 500BP (or 550 if you are on a streak but to make things easier let's stick to 500) which means that for every group of three players that wins their match at any given time there will be 1500 BP handed out. The reason I used a group of 3 is that there are three tiers of matchmaking. If 100% of the people in matchmaking are playing OU I think that the potential earnings for BP per match should be scaled down and the potential earnings for the other two tiers scaled up based on the percentage of players playing in each tier. There is no way of doing this perfectly evenly without using fractions but for example, if 100% of the players in matchmaking are in OU you can cut the potential prize by 50% and raise the potential prize of the other two tiers by 25%. Then if more people start playing the other two tiers the percentages start going the other way the BP prize adjusts itself accordingly. I haven't really thought about the specifics of how the math would work but i would assume you would want it to work out in such a way as to not have much more BP being pumped into the system than there is right now because that would have an inflationary effect on the BP economy but I hope the example I gave illustrates the point I am trying to make a little more clearly.
  3. No same xp. No mixed signals, i just think that gyms would be more like pvp if it was tourny mode. And if you mix the tiers, some gyms do OU, some UU, some NU, some Doubles, it will give you a feel of the pokemon used in those tiers. Which ones can do what you know.
  4. My idea is to have little boxes, like packages (the graphic of the item doesnt matter), in the PC (they take up 1 pokemon slot) that you can drag a pokemon with an item into. You can do this with six pokemon. The pokemon doesnt disappear into the box from the PC, it still takes up a slot in the PC BUT when you drag the box from the PC to your party all pokemon currently in your party goes to the first available slot in your pc and all of the pokemon with the items that you put in that box gets put into your party in the order you put them into the box.The idea is to make it easier to bring comp teams out of the PC. It also is a good way to keep track of all of the different teams you may come up with. With this you wouldnt have to remember which starmie you used in this particular team or wich dragonnite went well with that team etc etc. You just drag the box for the team you want and its there. The boxes should be renameable so we can label our teams. You should also be able to see what pokemon are in the box holding what item. And finally pokemon should be able to be removed from the box when ever you want to so you can upgrade or use a different mon on any given team. IF you drag a team to your party and you no longer own a certin pokemon/item then an error message should appear to help prevent ppl from going into battle with incomplete teams. This is a quality of life suggestion so it would be reasonable if you put these items in the gift shop. I would pay real money for a pack of 3-5 of these things. Someone had posted a snippet from another thread in another one of my suggestions about battle boxes that does kind of the same thing but in a different way. Idk if that was a suggestion or if it was planned for future implementation. If you guys already have plans to help ease pulling comp parties out of the boxes then you will obviously disregard this one. And thats fine, just thought it would be a good idea, a nice quality of life change for the game, and a good way to earn some revenue for the devs.
  5. You guys want the gyms n such to be a good introduction to PvP right? So why not make them tournament mode? No bag items and all pokemon are the same level. Also, some of the gyms can be doubles and some singles. You could even implement the tiers in it with each gym leader representing a different tier. This obviously wont be the same as PvP but its a step in the right direction. And it gets rid of those POINTLESS AND ANNOYING full restores. Side note: Full restores dont make the gyms harder to beat with my team of lvl 100s, it just makes them take longer and annoy me more. Stop with that. We would probably have to use our comps to beat these gyms considering we wouldnt be able to rely on over leveled mons to beat the gyms. That brings up an issue of exp. The solution to that is to make it to where pokemon dont gain EXP unless they are holding an EXPshare or Lucky Egg. Then EXP is given to that pokemon like it normally would be.
  6. .There are a butt ton of phenomenon spots. Thought it would be nice to have a thread where people can post all of the spots you have found. If you can post a screen shot of the locations too (having the map open will also help people find it if you post a screen shot). I might make a guide from the information given here but idk.
  7. There is actually a few things in this meta that could prolly be considered broken w/o team preview. Discussing and banning them all might be pointless. BUT i think trappers in particular are different than something like les say conkeldur bc of their uncompetitive nature.
  8. Is it worth discussing wobbofet and other trapping mons until we get team preview?
  9. "Reduced base stats of storyline Kanto/Hoenn Elite 4 battles slightly" So they do change the E4 Base stats at least right?
  10. Oh thatd make sense. So they dont make them stronger? Bc i was told they were "powered up" by a teammate. Idk what they meant by that.
  11. I had a life orb lvl 80 something polywrath outspeed my lvl 100 timid starmie. How and why? Did the devs mess with the base stats for the pokemon that the gym leaders have? If so why? Wouldnt it make more sense just to make their pokemon lvl 100?
  12. Portable PCs would be cool BUT it still doesn't allow you to hatch eggs while you comp. "You either breed or you battle" Why does it have to be that way? Battling IS the endgame to this game. Why limit our access to it in such a mundane way? I understand its a mmo and time is an aspect that you have to put into it. But while breeding I don't have many options as to what I can put my time into. You COULD payday grind or search for item but is that really good gameplay? I understand that grind is necessary, but i saw a grind in the game that doesnt have to be as mundane as it is and offered a suggestion that could make it less so. If YOU dont think you would find a need for this suggestion then thats fine. The ocarinas arent for everyone, not everyone cares about vanity items, etc etc. doesnt mean that others wouldnt find use in it. If it doesnt effect the game negativly, can help some ppl enjoy the game more, and bring revenue to the devs who work on the game i dont see why people are activly against this suggestion.
  13. First you cant hatch eggs like that (which usually takes more time than waiting on the egg does), second, this is a quality of life change more than anything. Yes, you can put pokemon in the daycare hatch, pull out your comps, play a match, put half your team away, rinse and repeat. But this makes the task of doing this a lot more convenient.
  14. Unlike with kite, i see your logic and where you are coming from. I just dont think its going to be the problem you think it is. Being able to battle while breeding, imo, isnt going to cause a comp flood. If i need or want to make a comp ill just take the time to breed and forego comp until its done. Ibe never once put off breeding something i needed bc i couldnt comp while doing it. I usually clean or do something irl while breeding. This suggestion is to give us something in game to do while breeding.
  15. You dont use them for battling. You have no access to them during a battle. I have explained this in more than one different ways already.
  16. Let me explain your line of logic using a different example than the one at hand You: My carpet is fuzzy therefore it will snow toda Me: Please explain to me why your carpet being fuzzy will cause it to snow You: Because its fuzzy, nuf said. You either dense, a troll, or one of those people who cant admit when hes wrong even tho his wrongness is blatant and obvious. Either way you have no valid points so i am done with you. This doesnt make getting 31s or any other comps any easier. It just gives you something else to do while breeding. If anything it makes competitive battling more active because you can do that while waiting on eggs.
  17. This has gotten ridiculous, you say that 3 extra slots will cause a need for rebalance of pvp and pve, i explain that you cant use the pokemon in the 3 extra slots in battle, you say it doesnt matter. You have failed to explain how having 3 extra slots that you cant use in battle will cause a need for a rebalance for pvp an pve.
  18. you cant use the extra 3 pokemon during battle. Thats what i meant by they are inactive.
  19. How does tht effect anything balance wise tho.
  20. Why would they have to rebalance everything to accommodate 3 extra slots? You are still only using 6 of those pokemon while battling. I like the battle box idea too. Can you have multiple teams in there and choose from them?
  21. How does having extra inactive slots break the balance of the game entirely? Edit: i like the idea of a battle box... still doesnt allow us to do other things like comp while breeding
  22. Thats certainly better That suggesting was a separate slot for eggs. Idr how much attention it got. I want a slot you can put pokemon in too, and maybe even allow us to buy 6 of them so we can quickly switch out comp teams during tournies. But certainly people would get use out of extra slots for the egg at the very least. You cant really judge what the player base would like based off from a thread in the suggestion forums the same way you cant judge anything based off from polls in forums. There was no necessity for the ocarinas. I also dont think its based in any lore either. But the fly ocarina i have is nice an the money is spent on it helps the game keep running. This can do the same thing.
  23. Oh wow okay, and the problem is?? Its a quality of life change, not a necessity. Both of you still have no legitimate reasons not to have this as a feature in the game. While i have good reasons to have it in. Now unless you have something legitimate to say please stop commenting on this thread. It feels like both of you are just arguing for the sake of arguing,
  24. But what you are missing/leaving out on purpose for what ever reason is that the extra 3 slots, unless it has an egg in it, is inactive. You can not use the pokemon in those slots for battle meaning no core aspects of the game is changed. Again its just a quality of life change. Just because you have no use for it doesnt mean others wont. I like to breed and i would love to be able to buy extra slots so i can breed and comp at the same time. Therefore your first statement is irrelevant. Your second point, why dont they just give me a way to..., that is the slippery slope fallacy at its worse.
