@  Fire Blazer : (18 March 2020 - 03:18 AM) hope everyone is managing ok...
@  kirant : (03 March 2020 - 05:41 AM) New challenger approaching!
@  xcrash1998 : (26 February 2020 - 09:55 AM) Not anymore
@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)

I don't know if anyone else on this forum cares, but here goes...SPOILERS AHOY!

 

 

It's of interest to note that one girl revealed in this video was apparently part of a final starter evolution leak a while back:

 

Spoiler

 

So yeah, looks highly likely (I say, while hoping with all my heart that it is not true because it has not been OFFICIALLY confirmed yet) that we're getting YET ANOTHER Fire/Fighting starter.

 

Supposedly though, according to another leak, there's two final starter evolutions. We'll see about that.

 

On the brighter side: I AM ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH THE ICE VULPIX. I have dubbed it Snowpix and it will be mine. And I will love it to death in whatever the new Pokemon Amie is. <3

Man, Exeggutor is high as a kite. 

 

I'd also like to point out that Alola Ninetales > Alola Vulpix in my opinion.  :ph34r: 

 

Still though, I'd love to see if they alter the stats at all.  Exeggutor has a pretty nice type now but needs the stats to back up being a grass dragon.  Please have tanky stats.

 

(Also, we get Alola Lapras when?  I have wanted a viable Lapras in forever)

You are entitled to your opinion. :P My opinion is that the wispy things on Icetales turns me off. That being said, Icetales could possibly be a dragon Pokemon's worst nightmare, with that ice/fairy typing.

 

As for stats, according to Pokemon's website on Snowshrew:

 

"Sandshrew’s body changed to adapt to the harsh environment of the snowy mountains. The Alolan Sandshrew has a shell of ice covering its skin, which is like hard steel. It excels defensively, but it lacks flexibility and can’t curl its body into a ball like a Ground-type Sandshrew can.

Its heavy weight makes the Alolan Sandshrew slower than a normal Sandshrew, but the claws on its hands and feet allow it to move across ice without slipping. When it wants to move quickly, it uses its stomach to slide across the ice like a curling rock."

 

This seems to imply that Sandshrew's stats will be altered, so this might be a thing for all the alola forms.

I'm really hoping that they fully explore the alola form thing. If we're only going to get like just these Pokémon with alerted forms it won't make much sense. I'm not asking for every Pokémon to be altered mind you, just a decent chunk(maybe 30?)

Edit: more important than the number however is how well it's explained in game lore-wise

This seems good. I can't wait to see how it all lays out, some Pokemon seem legit, like that new Lizard they had that has the ability corrosive so it can hurt steel with Poison moves.

The Pokemon website has some interesting descriptions on how they came to be, such as sandshrew/vulpix moving into snowy mountains and having to adapt. Exeggutor's dragon typing isn't explained at all, though its height is.

 

Not in-game, but it's something, at least.

I've said this already but it's just so weird

 

not bad, just like man, it's gotten kinda crazy again, lol. I'm not sure you can exactly call this playing it safe or not, haha. I mean in a way it's interesting I just don't know how to feel about this. I'm neither excited nor appalled, just kind of neutral like "ok then..." lol

 

new Vulpix is kinda cool I guess

really because even I don't see what I did there LOL

 

oh hey so those leaks I saw earlier (I think that's what they were) were made official eh. Raichu doesn't look quite as cool IMO but whatever, it's interesting they gave Raichu any attention lol. Marowak is cool and Meowth being dark is... idk, I can kinda see the anime having an alternate alohan or w/e version of Meowth competing with Team Rocket Meowth though (assuming Team Rocket is still a thing, it's not like I watch the anime anymore... >_>')

^ This, basically. lol

Pretty sure everyone did. People are REALLY good at data mining these days... And apparently have WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS to be doing this crap. I for one was hoping it was fake because at this point, even Game Freak is splicing things. Those ears? Dragonair.

 

I am bitterly disappointed in this because I know it won't actually KNOW Surf. And even if it did, Pikachu wouldn't. Because heaven forbid we get a surfing pikachu that isn't an exclusive event! >_>

Honestly, what the hell is new Exeggutor? Why is it Dragon type? Because to hell with reasoning? It doesn't look like one. The others seem okay so far. I like the Vulpix and Raichu.

The Z-moves look silly and feel awkward imo. What next? Dab to no-sell the next attack? Did we need limit breaks?

I don't know, maybe I'm getting old, but it feels like we're really jumping the shark here. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

That said, the new mons don't look too bad - except for why they had to make sand castles evil - don't give people a reason to kick other people's sand castles over and make kids cry.

Exeggutor is dragon type for the dragon palm. It's a bit of a stretch even for Pokémon(heh), but that's the only explanation I can come up with.

Wait...evil? Excuse me while I go look at serebii.

 

Wait, got distracted by Pokemon Snap being released in Europe.

 

Okay, here we go.

Sunabaa is a grudge that dwells inside a pile of sand turns into a Pokemon. Truly a terrifying creature
Shirodesuna steals the life force from other Pokemon. Those Pokemon's grudges turn into a new Sunaba.

.........................................

 

Does it hold a grudge because some kid shoved a shovel in its head? WTH man.
