  1. With the existence of Battle Tower doubles, I do believe linking to battle other players is a long time coming. I'll upvote.
  2. Details Single Battle | Round Robin | 6v6 | Lv. 5 Date & Time Sunday, 25th April 2021 14:00 UTC Time Zone Converter Rules The only pokémon eligible for use is Smeargle. All Smeargle must be EV'd to have the exact same stat spread at level 5: 22/8/10/8/11/14. In acknowledgment of the fact that some strategies rely on being *slower* than the opponent, it is permissible to alternatively have Smeargle with a speed stat of 13. No two Smeargle may possess the same move. This only applies to moves with the same name. It is permissible to have multiple moves with similar effects (such as Roar and Whirlwind). No restrictions other than the ones listed prior (no OHKO clause, evasion clause, etc.) 1st Place Prize Semi-Comp (1x31, 5x27+) Level 100 Choice of nature and 4 moves & 500,000 Poké  2nd Place Prize 250,000 Poké 3rd-4th Place Prize 100,000 Poké

  4. I guess the idea is if you don't want your story mons to gain random EVs up until you reach good EV training spots. That way you're not forced to choose between inefficiently EV training early on or using EV reducing berries.
  5. The answer is Extreme Speed wasn't always an egg move. It used to be event exclusive and thus could be taught by the special move tutor.
  6. Play vs. AI is the very reason behind our team's inception! From the beginning to the end of the month, team members are encouraged to propose Pokémon sets. In order to properly assess them, each Pokémon will be used in battle. However, rather than team members facing off against each other, each set will be used in battles against random players in matchmaking! Submission Time: June 1 - June 30 11:59 PM (CDT) Judging: June 4 (Sunday) Rules: — Anybody can participate. — Entries will only be accepted if they are posted in either this thread or the set proposal channel of the discord server. — Be detailed. Sets must at the least mention the tier the Pokémon would be used in, the moveset, ability, nature, EV spread, and item of choice, but do mention additional details such as if Wish support is expected or if rain needs to be present, etc. — Sets must be outside the meta. Therefore all sets must either be a pokemon with little to no usage in the specified tier or a popular pokemon but with a unique set. — No duplicates. Ever. If a set has already been submitted, be it from a past month or by somebody else in the current month, you can no longer submit any variation of said set. — A maximum of 3 sets per person will be accepted. — Any entry must also include your in-game name. — Entries must be submitted within the timeframe. — Entries will be judged based on a balance of unorthodoxy versus effectiveness. Prizes: 1st Prize ₽ 1,000,000 2nd Prize ₽ 500,000 3rd Prize ₽ 250,000 * All participants will get semi-comp versions of their sets.
  7. Yeah, the problem is that the way stats are stored in index order, speed comes before the special stats apparently as opposed to the way it appears in the stat screen where speed is last.
  8. I like the hunt though. People have bonded over the struggle. Perhaps just slightly raise the number of phenomena occurring at a time.
  9. Well, actually you can also find it by surfing south of Fuchsia City thanks to the Let's Go games. Still really rare though
  10. Look, man. I agree with you when you say hidden abilities would be fun to have, but the meta being stale and the viability of pokemon are not good arguments. Here's what would happen if you give pokemon hidden abilities. The same exact thing that happens when you add anything to the metagame. The meta would be shaken up for a bit and then everything would settle with some pokemon coming out on top. That's because that's how pokemon works; it's an inherently unbalanced game whether there are hidden abilities or not. The reality is the introduction of hidden abilities won't save the majority of pokemon resulting in the meta becoming "stale" yet again. Returning to the example of Beartic, nobody gave it a second thought even with Swift Swim because it was outclassed by other swift swimmers. This is why I'm so disinterested in this matter. If we don't get hidden abilities, fine. If we do get hidden abilities it would be the same situation with different names.
  11. Oi, mate you missed the point that I was trying to emphasize. I never said hidden abilities had no business being in the game. I was mostly talking about the difficulty of acquisition and the time gap between when Beartic was introduced (2010) and when it got its hidden ability (2012) therefore suggesting that waiting for hidden abilities has precedence. Now regarding why I'm defending the devs. Well, for one it's a situation where they can't defend themselves because anything they say would just sound like an excuse, but more importantly they never actually lied. They said hidden abilities are coming, but they never even hinted as to when that would be. Am I disappointed Sinnoh came before we got dungeons? Of course, but I still have room to wait before doubting them.
  12. It's hard to say such and such pokemon was DESIGNED to be played with them because then it wouldn't be a hidden ability, it would be its normal ability. Your mistake is seeing hidden abilities as more or less a 3rd ability, but allow me to remind you hidden abilities were not something you could just get right away in gen 5. Hidden abilities were something released in waves over the span of the generation, and some pokemon never even got theirs until gen 6. Let's return to the example of Beartic. Out of the 3 years gen 5 lasted, Beartic spent 2 of them with just Snow Cloak and finally got Swift Swim in Black 2 and White 2, not as a normal ability but a hidden ability. Why? It still had an open ability slot. Is it not because Game Freak somehow saw hidden abilities as more significant than just an additional ability. Returning to your original question, why don't we just tack on hidden abilities? Why are we going through the effort of making it harder than simply having a chance of finding hidden abilities in the wild or something? Because Pokemon went through the effort.
  13. Um...you do realize slush rush is a gen 7 ability, right? I mean, hidden abilities are one thing, but we're definitely far from making the jump to gen 7 pokemon, moves, and abilities.
  14. Agreed. It is a small thing, and pretty pointless from a practical standpoint since the regions that don't have the feature weren't designed with it in mind in the first place, BUT... One of the biggest reasons I do my breeding in Hoenn is because it's just so fun hopping around while waiting for my eggs to hatch. Don't see it coming anytime soon, but would go towards providing a level of consistency across regions.
