Anyone think it's funny that there are no Pokemon who can use time screwing powers in game?

Like, you can't go ZA....WARUODO!!! with Celebi and freeze your enemies turn for a bit or flat out turn back time in game?

There are only two time manipulating Pokemon in the series (Celebi and Dialga) in the entire franchise though, so maybe that's why it's not a thing yet.

I'm not sure how one can even do time-stop in Pokemon, outside of just being part of the move animation.

How come Comet Punch isn't a fighting attack?

It feels like it should be a fighting attack?

Then again, so do Mega Punch and Mega Kick.

Dunno, Fighting moves need some amount of technique behind them?

Aug 18th 2019 at 8:52:30 PM

Turn based moves get extended by an X amount of time? Terrains, Weather, Screens and Rooms are buffed, Toxic might be nerfed by it, Outrage, Thrash and Uproar last longer, Rest is a death sentence?

Aug 19th 2019 at 12:31:29 PM

[up][up][up]If Mega Punch and Mega Kick are just 'throw every ounce of strength into one attack', then Comet Punch would be a series of rabbit punches-weak, but fast. The fighting-ish Normal moves are, conceptually, more like street brawling moves-effective, but lacking in technique. Hence the high power, low accuracy, and lack of useful secondary effects; compared to things like Low Sweep, Force Palm or Brick Break.

I just realized how some localization names are actually eerily accurate. Nyarth -> Meowth, Gaogaen -> Incineroar among other things.

Lone wolf? Hah! "Lone" wolves die out of hunger and loneliness. The wolf needs the pack, and the pack needs the wolf.

We got some Global Link News. I'm stealing this translation from somewhere else:

Timburr:

#532.5 - Timburr are found around building sites, where they help workers with construction and moving heavy loads. They always carry squared logs, adoring the sensation of carrying a heavy weight, and aiming to challenge themselves at alll times. As they grow older, Timburr will look for heavier logs to carry around with them, sometimes even felling trees to find the perfect log. Their muscles grow larger and stronger with age - a source of pride for these Pokemon.

#533.5 - Usually found near construction sites alongside Timburr and Conkeldurr, Gurdurr are known to usually carry an I-beam girder in its arms. The steel frame is used to train its muscles, and Gurdurr boast about their muscles with their comrades. These Pokemon are so muscular and strongly built that even a group of wrestlers could not make one budge an inch. As they age, wild Gurdurr will go off to develop their own concrete, the mixture recipe having been passed down through Pokemon lines. They will create their own concrete pillars, which fully mature Gurdurr - Conkeldurr - use both in and outside of battle.

Man, it's hard to imagine that's on the official site. I'm wondering if the ID numbers mean anything; they're easy to transpose into a month, day, and year.

Also, they misspelt Mt. Moon as Mt. Doom at one point. Oops.

The fact that the world exists means nobody has had a TRUE 'everything bagel' yet. Twitch

Maybe Team Rocket is stopping another group of twerps, particularly the one carrying that one ring of power.

While I was watching BrainScratch Commentaries' first part of their Platinum playthrough, Ted, despite his loathing of gen 4, had a point regarding the inevitable remakes.

In order to make the games more natural, ala Gen 7 and 8, they are likely going to need to redo most of the map because of how blocky the games are before gen 7.

This might mean that unless they had part of the team working on making the Sinnoh map less blocky during Sword/Shield's development, there is a chance we might not see the gen 4 remakes next year.

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

The biggest complaints people have about the Sinnoh games are the speed and Pokedex selection, neither of which means they have to redesign the region.

So, the Spaceworld 97 demo seems to have been cracked.

It looks like they had to cut about a third of the Baby Pokemon, Pinsir was going to get an evolution, and Weepinbell looked to be getting a split...

Eh, as someone who loves Sapphire but only made it about halfway through the remake before getting tired of it, I don't want DP remakes to be like ORAS. Especially since, even ignoring that I never finished AlphaSapphire, there are a lot of things in the remake I am not a fan of like pretty much all of the Gym Leader redesigns, Team Aqua's redesign, the changes to the story no matter how minor, etc. If we're getting DP remakes I want something more in the vain of FRLG or HGSS rather than ORAS.
