  1. effectiveness visible in moveset

    This was actually a thing that really bothered me when they added it to sun/moon. It just doesn't seem right. When I encounter a new species for the first time I feel like there should be some sort of mystery to it. I want to be able to see a new thing and try to figure out its typing on my own, not have its weaknesses revealed to me immediately. Learning something's typing the hard way has been one of the most fun things I've experienced in Pokémon; From the time gunthug tried to shadow ball a girafarig, to the time topquake used fake out and psychic at the same time on sableye in a double battle. Most of getting good at Pokémon comes from learning how the game works, and this feels like it almost takes away an aspect of gameplay giving you one less thing to learn about.
  2. If only @Malp and @Thegreatsalami were here to see it.

  4. [VVVV] Veni Vidi Vici Vixi

    Work is killing me lately, send help.
  5. Drought Ninetales when?

    Since Drought is Hidden Ability on Ninetales it won't be coming until we see dungeons if things continue as planned. And I think it's safe to say dungeons aren't coming next update so in short: Nah.
  6. Christmas Movie Marathon Night

    I have Monday and Wednesday off next week if that works for anyone
  7. we considered that when we were talking about knock off but didn't want to add it in a way that never existed in the games before.
  8. I still don't even get it, what's the comparison to sub passing vs volt turn? Do you miss the part where you are passing a sub? because that's kind of a big deal. with u-turn and volt switch, sure you keep the momentum if the opponent decided to switch, but what ever comes in doesn't get a sub to hide behind if the opponent attacks. You're comparing a switch that passes boosts and sub to a switch that can do damage and possibly fail if it doesn't successfully hit, and then saying the latter is the stronger one. It would be one thing if you just brought up volt switch and u-turn saying you think they're strong, but comparing it to baton pass is a tad silly.
  9. What part makes them seem "more busted" in any way? They are damaging moves, which is kind a pro and a con because that means they can actually fail to things like protect, or a lightning rod/ground switch in for volt switch. And they don't actually pass the substitute or any boosts the way baton pass does. I don't get what you're seeing here. Edit: so very ninja'd
  10. Old Accounts

    No. There was one time that accounts got wiped if they met certain requirements. I forget exactly what the requirements were, but it was something like less than 8 badges in any region, less than 10 (could be way off with this number) hours played, no shiny Pokémon, and less than a certain amount of money, and if it wasn't logged into in the past certain amount of days. And like I said that purge only happened once and that was probably about 2 years ago. So in short no, there's no timer on your account that will kill it if you don't log in, but if you had an account back then and never did much of anything, it's possibly gone.
  11. FOUL PLAY BANNED

    It isn't working correctly. Once it's fixed it will be unbanned.
  12. [Unofficial] Shiny Existence Thread [5th Life]

    this exists by the way
  13. Sleep Verb "provide (a specified number of people) with beds, rooms, or places to stay the night." "studios sleeping two people cost $70 a night" Sorry sir, this match only sleeps 1 pokemon at a time.
  14. Knock Off Damage

    We decided against it. In the regular pokemon games that buff came along with some other things to balance around it (mega stones, fairy type, etc) that we don't have, so we don't want to do it.
  15. Soon™

    The only real issue I have with it turning out like this is the fact that we made tiers operating under assumptions that these things would be working. I don't think it's a problem having the region without everything working because I waited like 3 years for substitute to work but had a great time in that 3 years. Things just happened as they happened and it was a good time. But this time we had to make tiers beforehand, which I never really liked the idea of (although it was fun to do, so I wasn't particularly mad) and now that the update is here it feels even more stupid that we built the tiers at all because most of what we based things on doesn't exist. This time it came as a bad mix of "letting it happen as it happens" but also this thrown in sense of "don't put out something incomplete (game with no tiers)" and it ended up with this ridiculous mismatch. So I guess what I'm trying to say is I don't particularly agree with waiting to have the entire working gen 5 out. I love that we got the update even in this incomplete form, it's just that I feel that's the part that makes it offputting, at least competitively.
