Oh geez, I sure haven't been here in a while.

 

In the middle of a Sapphire Nostalgia run. I've nabbed a 10/21/21/30/27/7 Modest Kyogre. It's very handsome on the special side, so I'm inclined to keep it. What do you guys think?

 

The poor health is too bad, but having a low speed is actually pretty good for weather. I'd say keep it if its nature isn't awful.

So, after thinking I'd never get into Pokemon again after Black (which I thought was awful, BTW), I got X just to try it out... And I'm actually really enjoying it.

 

Just caught Xerneas, checked the IVs and it's 31/5/1/31/11/31 with Careful nature. Not too keen on the low Atk/Def and middle-of-the-road Sp. Def, but that HP, Sp. Atk, and Speed is rather nice (31 is still high for IVs, right? Haven't done this in ages).

31 is the maximum for IVs, yeah. This gen, however, all unbreedable Pokemon (legendaries and baby pokemon) have 3 perfect IV's automatically, so it's easier to reset for better IVs on legendaries and such.

^My brain decided to scramble the letters in the word "Phiones" when I read that, causing me to wonder how it was possible to breed iPhones.

 

Also- random question, haven't been able to find the answer anywhere else...

 

What happens when Mega Kangaskhan uses Counter?

From Bulbapedia: "Counter, Mirror Coat, Metal Burst, and Bide deal the full amount of damage for both hits."

I'd like to briefly describe a world from a popular fictional series.

 

The world is populated by a great variety of different nonhuman species. Some of them resemble and act like humans, while some others are animal-like. These species can be categorized by which elemental type they fall into. There are over a dozen elements, such as fire, water, metal and electricity, and each confers different fantastic powers and abilities to the beings of this world. (Not all the elements were revealed at once; some were added by the writers after the series began.)

 

The beings of this world do not grow up in the normal manner. Instead, certain circumstances may cause them to suddenly metamorphose into a new form with different traits and powers. They seemingly do not age otherwise, and some have lived thousands of years.

 

In this world, much of the action takes place on islands or similarly small areas, although each usually contains many different smaller areas such as caves, jungles, deserts, and volcanoes. The habitations of this world are often, but not always, associated with an element uniting the beings which reside there.

 

In this world, the story usually focuses on a team of six who use their powers to serve the side of good. The heroes face threats such as villainous gangs, ancient monsters and corrupt authority figures, while also dealing with creatures which individually pose minor threats but appear in huge numbers in the wild areas between or beneath inhabited places. These heroes follow a code not to kill any of their enemies, but to only go as far as to temporarily incapacitate them. One of the most important themes is the heroes learning the importance of trust and cooperation.

 

Did I just describe Pokemon, or Bionicle?

Just Pokemon. Most of the species in Bionicle aren't actually categorized by elements.

Pokemon games don't have six heroes, they have one hero: the random PC schmo, who orders around their little party of servants.

Ballom: He never specified six heroes; he said a team of six...

And heroes could, especially as of recent games, refer to the alt-player or rivals. Like in Diamond and Pearl and onward.

It's actually more similar than I'd think; though I don't think Pokemon's had corrupt authority figures yet. Officers that mistakenly battle you, sure, but you are alone with a team of high powered Pokemon, and a lot of the situations were night-only in most games, so it had reasons. =P

Well, I guess it depends if you consider a Gym Leader an authority figure.

Giovanni, and Ghetsis kind of. Bionicle didn't have many either. It's kind of a weak point in the comparison I guess.

Ghetsis wasn't ever an authority figure technically, though; he was always a member of Team Plasma, who were TRYING to force themselves into what was effectively the government, but never succeeded. =P

Though, Bionicle had Dume; and technically the Mata Nui Turaga, until they headed back to Metru Nui. They didn't mention it for a good reason, but I can't help but think things would've gone better if they had've just explained things to the Toa first. =P

Giovanni, however, is the closest equivalent to Dume, so I guess that works. And I guess in another sense, Malva of Kalos' E4.

Don't the X and Y cover legendaries always have 3 max IVs? If so, that's still quite good, but not as rare as 4 max IVs would be an a purely random Poke.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

9.Bigger secret bases.
10.Gen 3 style Pokémon Contests and Pokéblocks (No poffins)

1. I doubt we'll see seals, since those were mostly a Diamond & Pearl thing, and I don't mind. Having a separate bag for Poké Balls again would be nice, though, considering how bloated the main bag section has become in recent games.

2. We will most likely see rematches, but it'll probably be through the PokéNav rather than the Vs. Seeker. On that note, I'm not sure whether they'll use the Match Call (from Emerald) or the Trainer's Eyes (from Ruby and Sapphire), but I hope it's the former, since that's what allowed for Gym Leader rematches.

 

3. Again, I doubt we'll see this. It's possible, but the ways in which you obtain HMs in the originals would have to be changed to make sure you didn't skip a Gym outright. And I think that'd be too big of a change, rendering some NPCs useless.

4. I do expect we'll see this, even though they didn't appear in Hoenn until Emerald Version.

 

5. This one's iffy. I don't know how good such a thing would look with the 3D graphics of these games, since obviously huge Pokémon like Groudon, Kyogre, or Wailord would have to be shrunk significantly if you wanted to be able to maneuver around the overworld. It's a possibility (after all, HeartGold and SoulSilver introduced the feature and it was extremely popular), but I think it may be a generation or two before that feature returns, if at all.

 

6. No. I do hope to see a day/night cycle (since the original Ruby and Sapphire lacked it), but seasons were less convenient last generation (since you could have to wait months before fully exploring certain locations) and ultimately I think the seasonal cycle would be largely incompatible with Hoenn's tropical climate.

 

7. This is iffy. In past generations, I'd say such a thing would be a given in remakes, since it would be the only way to teach moves that were TMs in the originals but no longer are. But since this generation features TMs that can't be traded, and are instead reusable like key items, it's entirely possible that they could give us all the original TMs instead of the ones from X and Y. Let's consider that a "maybe".

 

8. I certainly hope so! I imagine that we will see the Emerald Battle Frontier returning, since there's no suitable alternative in X and Y (and it'd stink if all we got was the leaderless Battle Tower from the original Ruby and Sapphire). I fully expect this to be included, unless they do in fact plan to release an Emerald remake this generation as well.

9. How about Secret Bases at all? I'm not that concerned about them being bigger, since there were a range of sizes in the original games if you bought some boards at the department store sale, but I'm ready for the grand return of Secret Bases. Even better if they integrate Streetpass or Spotpass, to be able to exchange Secret Bases with friends, passersby, or just people you trade or battle with.

 

10. If contests return (and they pretty much have to), Pokéblocks will follow. They wouldn't use Poffins, since those were exclusively a Sinnoh thing. Not sure about how Contests should be brought back, though—I'm not arguing that the overly-complex Super Contests should return, but I do think Contests can be improved upon. Hopefully the condition boosts from Pokéblocks will at least be able to be reset!

I'll post my own hopes for the new games at some point. No time right now.

With the ability to catch HA Kanto and Kalos starters in X/Y, I hope we can catch other HA starters in OR/AS. Dat Sheer Force Feraligatr.

Kind of off topic, but does anyone have friend codes for Friend Safari?

Mine is 3668-8206-7027 if anyone wants it.

Um, pretty sure Zoroark was an event Pokemon for the gen 5 games but you can still catch one in X/Y...

Technically you could catch a Zorua in B2W2. But your point still stands.

Honestly, I imagine the event exclusivity for Blaziken was simply because they liked the design and wanted to make it available early. But Blaziken itself isn't exclusive, so it only follows that its Mega Evolution would only be that way temporarily.

Fair point, I'd forgotten about Zoroark. But then, the entire thing is Megas are obviously somewhat more special than Pokemon (even if Zoroark could be caught only through event, you were still free to breed it if you wanted, whereas Mega Stones are a one-time-per-game deal) They're in a nebulous spot between regular Mons and Legends. As I said, I wouldn't care if event-exclusive stuff stops being event-exclusive, personally, so I don't mind being wrong.

 

But more importantly

Ballom: He never specified six heroes; he said a team of six...

And heroes could, especially as of recent games, refer to the alt-player or rivals. Like in Diamond and Pearl and onward.

It's actually more similar than I'd think; though I don't think Pokemon's had corrupt authority figures yet. Officers that mistakenly battle you, sure, but you are alone with a team of high powered Pokemon, and a lot of the situations were night-only in most games, so it had reasons. =P

 

Then there are always those trainers who try to make a mockery of you.

 

I would imagine a full on coop Pokemon game to be disastrous.

Added. Could you add me too, please?

 

 

Also, can anyone tell me what my Friend Safari is? My friend code is 4098-4028-0743.

 

EDIT: Never mind. I found out.

I can feel the pressure getting steeper with every life lost.
You hope that I won't see the light of day in time to come.
