All I wanted to find was a simple Piplup,but most are put up for Mew or Arceus (the latter which cannot be traded if it's not Japanese,because it was event only.And I doubt Japanese people want to trade their Arceus for a baby penguin).That's basically the entire GTS as well.Sometimes,you get decent offers to pop up,but otherwise it's easier to put up a version exclusive if you want something simple like a starter.I miss what it was like in the early days of Diamond,Pearl and Platinum,where I was able to get some good Pokemon for decent trades.
Sad but true. May 20th of this year, we will lose the ability to play some quite amazing games online. This also includes the only 2 Fire Emblems with competitive multiplayer(FE11 and FE12). This is not Nintendo's fault. Nintendo outsourced server management to GameSpy for the Wii and NDS. GameSpy was recently purchased by a company and they don't seem to care about anything other than mobile gaming, so all of the old GameSpy servers are being shut down. But this doesn't have to be the end. Nintendo consoles have all been emulated, with the exception of the current gen(and we'll get there). If you look for NES games, or SNES games, you'll find that fans have painstakingly preserved these experiences so that they can be enjoyed far into the future. So, why don't we do the same thing with Nintendo WFC But how do you propose we do this? It's not going to be easy. I don't even know if we'll be able to write servers for every game in time. What we need to do is make sure that as much data is collected about each of the multiplayer games that are going offline as possible. There is an effort being lead by an emulator developer named ToadKing to reverse engineer each game and collect as much data as possible to do this. But how can I help? 1. Use the guides on ToadKing's website to capture packets of as many use-cases of online in any game that is going offline and send it to ToadKing. 2. Anyone with network protocol experience would be invaluable in extracting data and figuring out the encodings of data 3. Any information you can find relevant to the multiplayer. Most multiplayer games use Nintendo WFC's servers to find a match, and then from there everything is Peer2Peer. Please spread the word! May 20th is a few months away, but it'll be here before we know it
By request from many of you, it is back! If you're interested in what I'm talking about, go here. I'll be offering an explanation though if you don't want to look back. Gym Leader Tower was an event I did back in 2012. It was really successful, even though we had a few inactive gym leaders, and I've had a few people asking me if I could do it again. So, here it is again, only under a new name. It follows the exact same format: Beat all of your competitors. It really can't get any more basic. When you beat everyone, you will be entered into the Hall of Fame. The biggest change from 2012's edition is that I'm not handpicking who gets a spot in the league/tower. Anyone is welcome to signup to be a Gym Leader, Champion or Elite Four member. I will need 13 people, but I will take substitutes as well. I haven't decided how long I'll be running this for, as it depends on the interest. I'm only going to end it when activity dies down, as there isn't much point in keeping it open if no one is interested any more. However, before we begin, I am going to post some ground rules. These is basically the battle clauses, but will also extend to the battles themselves. These are pretty much non-negotiable, but I am willing to change some things by popular request. Battle Clauses In terms of conducting battles: Due to the ease and simplicity of using it, battles will only be considered official if they take place on Pokemon Showdown. However, if both players agree to use Wifi to conduct their battles, then that battle will be considered official. That's all the regulations out of the way. If you want to become a member of the league just post saying that you are interested. As said above, I need 13 volunteers. However, you are welcome to apply for the position even if I get more than 13 volunteers. I will be holding tryouts sometime in February where you can show me your skills. I will take the best 13 that apply. Anyone else can still be on the subs list. You may challenge the gyms in any order you wish. You will need to beat all of the Gyms before you can challenge the elite four, whom you can challenge in any order as well. Fair warning: Gym leaders and Elite Four are not bound to type restrictions like in the games. Kalos League Members Champion: Alfred Kamon Elite Four: Comet (Water-type) / JSND (Fighting-type) / DualSilverGunner (Steel-type) / Not-An-Apple (Ghost-type) Gym Leaders: Breezy Kansaki (Flying-type) / LuxSpecs (Dragon-type) / Silver Lightning (Electric-type) / SmogonsLawnMower (Dark-type) / Esme (Poison-type) / Xinnidy (Ice-type) / Shin (Grass-type) / Assurhaddon (Fire-type) You must defeat all eight gym leaders to challenge the elite four. You can beat the gyms in any order. You must consecutively beat all four elite four members (you can challenge them in any order) before challenging the champion.
After not playing this game for a couple years, a few of my friends and I agreed to restart this game and create teams to fight each other, given a month of playtime (enough for online shopping). After browsing guides and whatnot, these are the teams that I have concluded to use. Please help rate them and improve them. I'm not gonna clock abuse, but I will RNG abuse the hell out of my units, and arena mabye 2-3m total gold for forging.
