  1. So I've been thinking of this as my first entry to my fanfic writing. I do have several ideas, but I'm going to try this as an easier entry to my try at fictional writing. It is not really a standard fanfic story, but an in-universe Who's Who guide book consisting of facts and gossip of all of the Gym Leaders and other notable celebrities from the Pokemon League and the wider Pokemon training scene. Both the characters from the game and the anime would be featured here. (I haven't read the Special Manga.) Note: As a longtime believer of incorporating real-life history and culture to Pokemon, I've incorporated a lot of real-life and alternate history of Japan - though not directly - into this world of Pokemon that the Who's Who is based on. Secondly, the Japanese original names (with some exceptions) will be considered as the canon names (with English names added to canon characters for clarification). Finally, there will be some crossover characters here and there. Contents: Chapter 1: Shoyoese Pokemon League Chapter 2: Kanto-Johto Region Chapter 3: Kanto League Gyms: Nivi City Gym Chapter 4: Kanto League Gyms: Hanada Aqua Arena and Gym Chapter 5: Kanto League Gyms: Kuchiba US-Shoyoese Common Air Force Base Pokemon Gym Chapter 6: Kanto League Gyms: Takashimaya Department Store Tamamushi Gym Chapter 7: Kanto League Gyms: Iga Ninjutsu School Koga House Dojo and Gym Chapter 8: Kanto League Gyms: Kirijo Yamabuki Gym Chapter 9: Kanto League Gyms: Atayama Baths and Inn Pokemon Gym - Guren Branch Chapter 10: Kanto League Gyms: Tokiwa Gym Further chapters to be added in the future.
  2. After the success(?) of my Emerald Gift/IGT only run, I felt like doing another one of these. The vote in the last thread was split, but I felt like playing HeartGold for unrelated reasons anyway, so that's what I'll go with. For a refresher, the idea here is to only use Pokemon that I'm given for free or which can be obtained via an in-game trade. Pokemon which are required for trades may be used up until the trade is available. (Or, that's what I allowed before...) Emerald offered an...interesting experience, with a somewhat troublesome early game and limited access to HMS - including NO access to Fly. How will HeartGold compare? Here are the Pokemon which will be allowed(well, with some possible exceptions): Gen I and II were a lot more generous with the amount of trades available, and their remakes reflect this. There's also quite a few gifts too. I will be playing mainly on a modded DSi, so there will be fewer screenshots this time. I'll still make occasional transfers to a PC emulator to get screenshots of new team members.
  3. Since Pokémon Scarlet & Violet is going to be releasing this month. What do you think if Game Freak is going to put in the possible Expansion Pass for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet similar to like how Pokémon Sword & Shield was handled? Since Pokémon Sword & Shield Expansion Pass had given two new areas to explore, new story plots that flesh out the parts for Sword & Shield, & managed to give amount of returning Pokémon to come back to Sword and Shield. I do think it's possible that we could see it happen for the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet & Violet to get an Expansion Pass happen later on. I do think we could see in the DLC are: Maybe have more than two areas to explore like maybe like three or four areas for variety. Maybe add a bunch of past Legendries for DLC similar to like the ones Crown Tundra brings them back. And we could see a few Galar Legendries be involved. Maybe add Mythical Legendary Pokémon to catch in one of the DLC areas. If Scarlet & Violet still haven't added the remaining Pokémon for the Pokédex at launch due to too much Pokémon handling for criteria work time, I think we could see the full Dex in the Expansion Pass. I think the Paldean Forms of the Legendries that I possibly think we might see are Paldean Latios, Paldean Latias, Paldean Mew (be the first Regional Form for a Mythical Legendary Pokémon), & Paldean Legendary Beasts. Maybe more members of Team Star that haven't appeared in-game, possibly remaining members of the DLC area. For my ideal Paldean Forms of the Legendries might possibly have are: Paldean Latios - Dragon/Fighting Paldean Latias - Dragon/Ghost Paldean Mew - Psychic/Fighting Paldean Entei - Poison Paldean Raikou - Ground Paldean Suicune - Ice If you had an ideal list for a possible Expansion Pass for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet that you would like to see it happen for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, you can post them here. Edit from 11/20: Since Pokémon Scarlet & Violet had been released, be sure to put spoiler tag down for Post-Game & Post-Game Ideas for the DLC to make sure the readers and posters don't get spoiled in-game spoilers.
  4. What the title says. i will be playing Pokemon Emerald, using only Pokemon available as gifts or in-game trades. I did this recently for FireRed and found it to be an interesting twist there. I wanted to try Emerald next because it looks like it's the most restrictive game in the series in this regard. The asterisk in the title is because I will allow Pokemon that are required to perform a trade to be used up until that trade is available. This is mainly just to prevent the early parts of the game from being a pure starter solo, which are boring. I'll refer to these mons as "substitutes" since they're "subbing in" for a future trade. I will use subs under the following restrictions: Only one of each may be caught. They must be left in a state/evolution stage where they can be traded. They must be traded as soon as their corresponding trade is available. Here is a list of the allowed Pokemon: Other restrictions/notes: No breeding will be done. This will not be a nuzlocke, because I'm not that much of a masochist. I will try to avoid grinding as much as possible. Not sure about specific limit, but I'll probably try to stay in the range of +/- 5 levels of the next gym leader/whatever other major story event? Outside trading will generally not be allowed. There may or may not be one exception, but we'll get to that when it comes up. So, yeah, Hopefully the restrictions are clear and this sounds interesting enough. Not sure if it will be challenging, but it will be at least a little tedious, so wish me luck. The first update will come later. I wanted to draft the first post to get all the rules/etc out of the way ahead of time.
  5. I've been looking into doing some Monotype challenges for the various pokemon generations, now assuming little to no grinding generally, what do you lot think would be the hardest Monotype per Gen? The one on my mind is like Grass in Gen 2, because while you can get the 6 grass types fairly early, they are kinda mediocre and Johto stuff tends to hate Grass in general lmao, but I was wondering what the rest of you thought on that and the other generations.
  6. The idea i used here is the fact Ditto is a DNA blob and the fossil amber sort of is too i hope you enjoy.
  7. I hope you enjoy these 3 Proto Pokemon i made i make many Pokemon on my Youtube channel Johtothkid if you enjoy my art please subscribe thank you.💖
  8. Pokémon Legends: Arceus has now officially released. What are your impressions of it? Please make sure to put anything that wasn't revealed pre-release in spoiler tags.
  9. There isn't much more to say. As revealed in the "Pokemon Presents" video earlier today, Diamond and Pearl remakes are coming! Under the titles "Brilliant Diamond" and "Shining Pearl", they are expected to be released late in 2021 - although, no release date has been made official. Here's the trailer, for those not yet in-the-know. So, what do we think about what's been revealed? Are the chibis charming, or stomach-churning? Does this look like what you were hoping for out of a Sinnoh remake, or does this one miss the mark? What do you hope they change, and keep the same, this time around? And will you be buying this game, or passing on it? I'd love to hear everyone's feedback! And yes - I recognize a topic already exists speculating on potential Gen IV remakes. But as those remakes have moved from the realm of "potential" into "announced", I believe another thread is warranted.
  10. https://www.deviantart.com/enlightened-titan/art/Tokyo-2020-or-2021-Nintendolympics-Collaboration-888328848 It was a long road, like the actual Tokyo 2020, but we eventually made it. Note that there are 282 characters, counting the horses.
  11. Today, the Pokémon company just released a Pokémon Presents video that provided a lot more information about current and upcoming games: What did everyone think of the announcements?
  12. Since Nintendo is still doing collaberations with Koei Tecmo doing a Warriors spinoff with the Zelda franchise with Hyrule Warriors and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and Fire Emblem franchise with Fire Emblem Warriors. What are your thoughts if Koei Tecmo did a Warriors Spinoff from the Pokemon Franchise? In my head idea of what the Pokemon Warriors looks like, this is what I came up with so far: I do think they might keep some of the mechanics from Hyrule Warriors series and Fire Emblem Warriors and add some of the recurring mechanics from the mainline Pokemon series. I think the enemy of the Pokemon warriors series had to be a Villain Team who is more powerful than the other Villain Teams from any Pokemon games. They're objective is to destroy the entire world of Pokemon and all the remaining trainers and allied Pokemon will have to fight on to save the world that be similar to like the Soldiers from Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. I think the players moves the Pokemon Trainers while using any attack button to send the Pokemon to attack the opponents. I do think the humans in Pokemon Warriors will get knocked down as well. I do think we could see some higher members acting as the Captains of the Forts. You choose any Pokemon in your specific teams. I do think Pokemon Warriors will get maybe around two new playable Trainers introduced in this game and the rest is legacy characters similar to like the Rowan and Lianna situation from Fire Emblem Warriors. I think HM Moves will be unlocked in specific areas instead of permately used in the party's Pokemon. I think the Legacy Pokemon Trainers that will be encountered as enemies such as Red, Ethan, Blue, etc. will might get brainwashed by the evil Team Members and you just unlock one of them by beating them similar to like you fight the the legacy characters when you encountered them in Fire Emblem Warriors. What are your thoughts on how Pokemon Warriors should be handled if Koei Tecmo decides to make a Warriors spinoff from the Pokemon series?
  13. As the title says: take a Pokémon from the previous games, and make a Galarian Version. Describe any changes to its appearance, its new typing, give it some Pokédex data, any new abilities, and/or any changes to its base stats. Keep in mind that the change should reflect something about UK culture/environment, given that the Galar Region is based on the UK. For an example, here's one I came up with: Pokémon: Ariados Appearance: Ariados's colour scheme changes to red & green tartan with yellow and white lines, and the spike on its head becomes an axe head. Type: Bug & Fighting Pokedex Data: After generations of living in the Galar Region, these Ariados have grown to live in groups referred to as "clans". The first Ariados to be trained in Galar was nicknamed, "Ariados the Bruce" after the human family that trained it. These Ariados have developed a keen fighting spirit, and their tenacity is legendary. The axe-like spike on their heads aids in fighting off stronger Pokémon. Abilities: Tough Claws, Vital Spirit, Sturdy (Hidden Ability) Changes to its Base Stats: -50 Sp. Attack, +50 Speed, -10 Sp. Defense, +10 HP This Galarian form is based on a legend that Robert the Bruce hid in a cave after a defeat, where he then observed a spider spinning a web across the cave's roof. The spider failed on the first two attempts, but succeeded on the third, and this inspired Robert the Bruce to keep fighting. The axe head comes from Robert the Bruce famously preferring an axe over a lance when fighting on horseback.
  14. So I'm pretty sure there have been threads for this kind of thing before, but I couldn't find any that were current, especially with the new 3H characters being around now. Because I'm an unoriginal person who cant think of good original nicknames like I used to, I've decided to combine my two obsessions in pokemon and FE (which both coincidentally have loads and loads of characters) by theming my pokemon nicknames around FE characters. But outside of a handful I can think of, I'm not very good at matching and thinking about good combinations of pokemon and FE characters on my own. And I want to use as many names across the various games as much as possible. So throw me some suggestions if you have time! With particular emphasis on Gen 1-3 pokemon at the moment if possible, but I'll file away all suggestions for the future (no, this has nothing to do with the fact that Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DX came out today, whatever gave you that idea? >_>; ). It doesn't have to have a ton of reasoning behind the matchup, just imagine what pokemon this character would transform into if they woke up in a world of pokemon. Or just simply what kind of pokemon they would likely have as a trainer. Have fun! 🙂 Note: I have not played Gen 8/Sword and Shield at all and have no idea what 95% of those new pokemon are or even look like (which is by design to stay unspoiled until I play it) so while I'll take suggestions based on those pokemon it likely wont help me much right now. Also, I'm not sure if this is the correct forum section for this topic; if not, please move it as needed.
  15. So, Pokemon Home has dropped suddenly, with both mobile and Switch flavors. Surprisingly, there are differences. Such as GTS being locked to the mobile version, of all things. It also seems that the mobile version is just plain better for that reason. Fortunately, it seems that the plan is shared between both, so once you sync up your Nintendo account, you should be good to go. Thus far, I haven't exactly been able to do much, as it has crashed on me a few times thus far. Curiously, the mobile version does not force you to read the terms of service, as the switch version does. You have to at least scroll through the entire thing, which includes more languages than English. From the mobile version, I did receive a free Pikachu and, from my choice of three, Bulbasaur out of the original starter trio. The latter came with its hidden ability. With the basic (free) plan, you are unable to: A) Move Pokemon over from Pokemon Bank B) Deposit and store up to 6,000 Pokemon (limit for basic is 30, I believe. One. Single. Box) C) Have up to 10 Pokemon up for trade in your Wonder Box at a time D) Have up to three Pokemon on the GTS at a time E) Create Room Trades F) Gain access to the Judge function (IV Checker) So, already, your incentive would be to buy the premium plan, which you can buy: One month ($2.99), three month ($4.99), and 12 month ($15.99) Honestly, over three times the price of bank for only double the Pokemon storage and a few features that were previously free WITHIN THE GAME ITSELF honestly isn't worth it, in my opinion. Oh, and get this. If you transfer from generation 7, all of your bottle capped stats are reset. You also only get the dex entries for the games that those Pokemon have been physically in themselves, as far back as X and Y, as I can tell. So, your Pokemon has to have physically been in X/Y, traded to ORAS, traded to U/S/M, etc. to get those Pokedex entries.
  16. Heya! I thought it would be fun to share some of our nicknames that we've come up with for our poke-friends. I like to make mine pretty silly, and love to hear what others have come up with! My pokes so far in this game: Lil' Bishie (male popplio) FROOT LOOPS (pikipek) Jim Thrope (rockruff)

    Pokemon region in europe

    The new Pokemon Sword &Shild games ar coming out around a half year later. My question is: How would you imagine a pokemon region based on middle europe? For exemple hungary?
  19. My curiosity was recently sparked when on another discussion and I just wanted to know what you all think about the different Pokemon Generations (and share mine as well)!
  20. So, what would you think the anime, manga, and the like will give our new heroes? Personally, I have this (From 20000 names): Male: Lyall (Scottish name for “Shield wolf”, after Norse name Liulfr) Female: Brenda (Scottish name of Scandinavian origin, based on Old Norse brandr, or “Sword”) Male one may just have a British origin, though, to run parallel to the female’s Scottish origin (sorry Wales).
  21. So yeah. We're (probably) getting Gen 8 news tomorrow. I don't really know what to expect since it's just 7 minutes long but after the mediocre USUM and terrible Let's GO, i'm hoping we see something good.
  22. I didn't see a thread for this, so figured I'd make one. Your favorite Pokemon; what is it? My favorite non-legendary is Gallade, and my favorite legendary is Groudon.
  23. This is Red Randomizer Nuzlocke. What's interesting about this particular one is that it includes all the Pokémon up to and including the sixth generation [spoiler=PICK MY GOON] Furret is the stuff of nightmares LET'S GO Nuzlocke demands a set battle style ahh that nice familiar face [: Why would my name be anything else? He looks like a bully and an asshole Perfect MUH POTION All non-key items are randomized! Or they should be, anyway I have a terrible foreboding feeling all of a sudden... And girls don't? Televisions are sexist I... need an adult? yo YO YO Pick for me, fellow denizens of the forest! Pokémon Silver Randomizer Nuzlocke starts here QUOTES:
  24. By the title, I mean the first two "generations", so to speak, of the GBA and DS Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games. Given that these games are twelve and nine years old, respectively, I feel like the only person left who still goes back to them non-infrequently. Of course, I don't go back to these games too often, because they're the games I spent the most time with in my teenage years by a long shot, but I still think the first two Mystery Dungeon series are great games that deserve all the praise they get. I was playing MD Blue on and off for a total of about 5-6 years to recruit all 386 Pokémon species, and currently, I'm trying to do the same in MD Sky whenever I feel like taking a break from Fire Emblem. I'd say I'm well on my way, but there's still a lot left to do, like train up a Pokémon capable of learning Fast Friend to completely max stats so it's possible for me to recruit Kecleon. For some reason I started as a Skitty in my current file... even though Normalize is literally the worst ability ever. I'd probably start over again if I hadn't already maxed out my Explorer Rank, cleared Zero Isle (and Destiny Tower, after like 50 attempts) and recruited about two-thirds total of the game's roster of 493. And for anyone who might be wondering, I don't have much to say about Gates to Infinity or Super Mystery Dungeon. GTI was pretty awful and I didn't find SMD to be much better, but if you've enjoyed those games, that's perfectly fine, they just weren't for me. I picked them up once and put them down after finishing the main stories.
  25. Hey there everybody! I've been something of a long time lurker on Serenes, but I figured I should Introduce myself! I stream a TON of Fire Emblem and Pokemon, particularly with a focus on silly Rom Hacking. You might recognize me from my association with Mangs, for whom I am a scriptreader/editor for his character spotlight videos. Drop on by my discord for a general good time, and to get updates on when I'm streaming! we also have a nsfw section. Enjoy if u wish XD MODEDIT: we have our own discord, don't advertise yours LUNAEDIT: oops, sorry about that. MODEDIT: no worries cheers, welcome to sf
