Those fanmade Regis are pretty good looking. Think my favorite one is Regihive.

DOU is suspect testing Marshadow for the third time.

It is indeed 15th March in my time zone, but not everywhere else. So you might have to wait a few hours before the suspect test starts.

Not gonna lie, most of these Regis look cool, but not quite "Regi-ey". I think they look more like the originals when you have actual mineral-like bodies to work with, like the Rock, Fire and Flying versions.

Guys, quick question, just to avoid embarrassing myself elsewhere: do you think a Pheromosa and/or a Celesteela with beneficial Nature would be a good offer for a Timid Blacephalon?

You're better off asking for a friend for that. It's actually kinda risky to trade it off in GTS if you want an Ultra Beast with a beneficial nature.

Oh, sure. GTS was completely out of question in this case; I actually meant to offer them on my usual sites of choice for things like this.

Speaking of which, do you guys think a dedicated thread for trades (if non-existant) would be a good idea?

Not enough people willing to use it, probably.

Also, the fan-Regis were kind of garbage. And only 4 of them (charitably) we’re named properly. The Regis (minus Regigigas, which is a special case) have the type IN THE NAME. Regi ROCK, Reg ICE, Regi STEEL. I’ll forgive Regilectric for scanning better than trying to squeeze an e in there would be, but “Regiflame,” “Regiaqua,” and “Regiroot” in particular are inexcusable.

To be fair, though, those work because they're actually made of the material in the type.

Like, "Regigrass" just wouldn't work, because he's not actually made of grass. And that's one of them that I actually think still works conceptually as a Regi, as it's essentially a wooden golem.

Granted, I think it should have been called "Regiwood", but "Regiroot" still works better than "Regigrass".

I think those Regi designs are a little too imaginative. All of the Regis are bipedal humanoids with two arms and two legs, any variation on that basic mold doesn't really look like a Regi to me.

On an unrelated note, I've been playing Pokémon Tower Defense lately. Just going by what I've seen of this game and other fan games I've played, I've come to the conclusion that for some reason, the people who make Pokémon fan games have an unhealthy obsession with using the game's entire level range.

More often than not, I've found Pokémon fan games will require you to be within reach of max level before the end. Usually several gyms before the end, in fact. But the experience curve never seems to quite support it, leading to hours of pointless grinding. I'm going to assume this is a side effect of these games being released one update at a time.

Those regi designs were sick. My favorites were the water, poison,grass, ghost, and ground ones.

^I find it refreshing as I almost never get to max level in the proper games and they stop being challenging around level 80 usually but as long as there's adequate exp gain spots I'm cool with using the entire level range. I know some games raise the cap past 100 or in Reborn's case add extra E Vs to keep endgame challenge escalating(so far nothing too outrageous but hopefully they don't go overboard, game's hard enough already).

Part of it is how fangames usually have like 18 badges and like 20+ leaders.

So I suppose I can throw my Pokemon idea.

Design: Some weird beast trying to pass off as a Flying-type with its bird-like appearance in an attempt to trick any reckless opponent into using Electric-type attack on it. The "wings" are actually its hands, therefore it can't fly. Still fluffy, though.

Type: Ground/Fairy
Ability: Pixilate/Unnerve
Hidden: Cloud Nine

Stats:
HP: 85
Attack: 102
Defense: 80
Sp. Attack: 130
Sp. Defense: 95
Speed: 108
Overall: 600

Notable moves: Moonblast, Hyper Voice, Hidden Power, Thunderbolt, Swords Dance, Return, Feint, High Horsepower, Return, Superpower, Iron Head, U-turn, Encore, Tailwind, Defog, Acrobatics

Notably lacks: Hyper Voice, Tri Attack, Nature Power, Extreme Speed, Quick Attack

Its stats are shuffled from Garchomp. Pixilate is for the Physical Attacker role, hence the lack of any powerful Normal Special moves in order to not derail it. Unnerve acts more as an ability in Doubles given that most Pokemon love to hold 50% pinch berries, which is especially useful for Pokemon such as Incineroar and Zygarde. Cloud Nine supposed to check weather, but I'm not sure how useful that will be actually.

It has high special attack stat because I want a Ground-type special attacker that's not Palossand (it was terrible in competitive).

I really like the regis of all types, but yeah I gotta agree that they're a bit too interesting looking to be regis, because regis are all just kinda same-y looking in terms of anatomy.

It's just that the official Regis are golems. Their design gives off that crude, simple visual vibe that classic golems have. Not all of those fan Regis take that into account.

[up][up][up]I don't think a creature that needs to trick other Pokemon in order to predate on them would be a Pseudo-Legendary. Sounds more like a Pokemon in the 450 to 500 BST range. Pseudo-Legendaries tend to be dominant forces and the top dog in their own environment, they're not the kind of Pokemon that feign weakness to trick other Pokemon into attacking them.

Here's an addendum to my Fairy Hunter idea a few pages ago: when paired with any female trainer class in Double Battles such as a Lass, Picnicker, or even a Fairy Tale Girl, they are called Lady and Knight.

[up] I would guess that could work by having the question "Do you believe it exists?" appear after a level up and the two choices would be "yes" or "no".

Something along those lines, I guess. And here's a move idea: Eternal Rest. 5 PP, no base power, and Dark type. This attack is a one-hit knockout that only works on Sleeping Pokemon, but will always hit them.

Mar 15th 2019 at 3:37:23 PM

So either a friendship evolution or another painfully Guide Dang It! one (you must talk to this one specific NPC, and make the exact right dialogue choice. Also it must be the solar equinox and you have to rest a joycon on your head)?

CybranGeneralSturm Relationship Status: [TOP SECRET]
Mar 15th 2019 at 3:47:28 PM

[up][up] Komala will be knocked out in one hit by Eternal Rest, yes.

And this got me thinking of another move: Pestilence. 5 PP, no base power, and Poison type. It's another one-hit knockout that only works with a specific status condition and will always hit any enemy suffering from that status, but for Pestilence the status condition in question is Poison. It doesn't matter if it's bad poison or regular poison, if a Pokemon is suffering from any type of poison Pestilence will knock it out instantly.
