Pokémon Discussion / Re: Known or nah?

You're far from the first to want to know, but this is the type of thing that threatens the possibility of further leaks in the future. It necessarily could only have come from some sort of "insider", but having risked this much just to bring fans of a video game series some info, to be paid back by having their identity revealed would be downright wrong, not to mention a resounding "don't!" for anyone else who may have this kind of material.

Oh, that was just more of a passing "I wonder what kind of person could have gotten a hold of this kind of information" rather than "SOMEONE GO FIND THIS GUY" -- sorry, I didn't mean for it to come across that way! To me, it just seems unlikely for someone unaffiliated with Game Freak in some way to have it -- no wonder they want to remain anonymous.

What's the "little gimmick" you'd wish they'd kept, by the way? I think I may have missed it

It's real. It was also known some time before Helix Chamber released it.

Do you know anything else about it? HC seems like they might know more than they're letting on about it.

I'm curious as to why there is a prototype Blue sprite of Mew when Blue was released after Red and Green, but also because Mew wasn't added until the game essentially went gold, as I understood it. It's strange to me that a sprite of Mew from so much later on would be present in such a prototype. Unless the donor just had the sprite from elsewhere and included it?

Assuming this is real, I wonder who the leaker is. Getting hold of a copy of a Spaceworld cart isn't as far out there, but this seems like it would be only accessible internally. Really strange.
Pokémon Discussion / Re: Revision differences in Pokémon games

I might know what at least a couple of the changes are, but sadly I don't know which revs they are.

When I played Stadium on console, I remember one of the Announcer's quotes being "Taken down on the word go!" when immediately knocking out a freshly sent-out Pokemon in one hit. He has another similar quote to this, but not the same one.

However, when I played it on emulator a few years later, his quotes weren't the same. The above wasn't in the game, and instead I heard a new quote: "It's a head-on collision; power versus power."

This has baffled me for years and I don't understand why his quotes are different. Also, these were all NTSC and not PAL.

EDIT: Here's my original post on it:
I share much of the same opinion as Papa Doc. I think these games look really cute and wonderful and I'm actually fine with the capture mechanics being changed, but no wild battles is really odd. Hopefully that's dropped in gen 8 (I'm sure it will be)
AAAA omg omg omg OMG OOMG I've been waiting for this for YEARS!!!!!

By far some of the best news I've seen in a while for the old Pokemon games! I thought we'd never see a picture! Well, assuming it's real.

Metapod's shiny is orange so that's kind of funny
Generation VII Glitch Discussion / Small evolution visual error
« on: December 28, 2016, 01:32:09 am »
Not really a big glitch or anything, but I thought it was a little interesting.

In Sun and Moon, when evolving a Pokemon, the model of the evolved Pokemon appears near the top-left corner of the screen for a split second before disappearing. At the very least, this has happened to me when evolving Pichu into Pikachu. If I had to guess, I'd say that the model loads in while the Pokemon is evolving, but appears for a very small period of time before it moves off-screen?

I'll see if I can get a picture of it soon. Has this happened to any of you guys?

EDIT: Ok, here's a kind of crappy picture. I took a video too, but there's a glare of my face in it despite all of my attempts not to catch that, ack

It seems that there is an exploit in Sun and Moon that involves using a Ditto and gathering a lot of eggs in advance (preferably Magikarp) and then hatching them. If one of them is Shiny, you can reset the game and swap out the Magikarp for another Pokemon and the same egg will result in a Shiny of the new species you put in the daycare. Due to this, it's advised saving every 10 hatched eggs or so, so when you reset you aren't set back super far.

Apparently, the stats of eggs are determined so far in advance that they're practically no longer random anymore.

I love Cutiefly and I wanted to use it even though I expected it to be pretty useless...

... until I ran into one and it started slaughtering my team as I was trying to catch it
EDIT: I'm stupid and realized that it's because it was using Roost, which removes its Flying type. Still, it had to have a Calm nature, max HP and a lot of Spdef for it to do only half....

I didn't put this in the Glitch section because it could very well just be me hallucinating or something :p

So I was just in the Battle Tree in my Sun game, and I was battling a trainer that had an Altaria. My Metagross was paralyzed, and it just kept using Roost every time I did any damage. I didn't want to deal with that, so when it was at what I'm CERTAIN was full HP, I switched my Primarina in to decimate it with Ice Beam.

So she uses Ice Beam... and knocks this Altaria down to red HP but doesn't quite KO. I'm like alright whatever, it can't do anything to Primarina, so I'll just kill it next turn. It uses Roost, gets to about half HP... Primarina uses Ice Beam, and... it doesn't die. It lives with a sliver of health. I repeat this next turn. Lives with a liver of red health. This goes on until I finally end up freezing it, THEN I manage to KO it.

I'm absolutely CERTAIN I didn't crit first turn. Primarina is really strong, Modest and has max Sp Atk. Altaria didn't have a Yache berry... there's no WAY Ice Beam was only doing half. I even just did a calc. Ice Beam still almost always OHKOs a Calm Altaria with max HP and Spdef and the best IVs possible. At worst, it does 90%. Wtf gives? Am I going crazy?

I didn't have too much trouble with Kukui, but a few of the totem battles actually proved to be pretty tough. I found them harder than most gym leaders in the previous games.

I think this game had a really good difficulty level. It didn't feel too easy, and it also didn't feel like it was hard in the cheap or artificial way (as in, tons of hax). The totem battles being generally 2 against 1 helps add a little more challenge, even if the helper Pokemon usually aren't super strong.

Wishiwashi was the hardest one for me. b*****d called up a Alomomola with Heal Pulse. Ugh.

I'm a bit late, but I'm glad to hear you got things figured out for yourself, Zowayix :D You too, Torchickens. I had a similar self-discovery a bit over a year ago now, too. I identify as agender myself :)

Like the others said, hope your transition goes smoothly! I've planned stuff too, but I'm not there yet :p

Quote from: Zowayix
I never quite understood the "known since I was 5" narrative, myself. I don't think it actually happens that often at all, maybe in these days where children are educated (are they?) but for people of our generation we wouldn't have had the ability to identify dysphoria or know what transitioning is.

I don't really get it either... and when I hear it it's often from people who are actually a lot older, so I don't even think it's the younger generation. I mean, I can relate a little bit -- I've always really disliked being associated with my birth sex, but I didn't know that being transgender was a thing. So I guess in hindsight, maybe I did "always know", but obviously it never really occurred to me until I researched it. I wouldn't know to call myself that if I didn't know it existed, after all!

Quote from: Torchickens
I have read there may be stigma in which people might say things like 'not trans enough'. Initially it made me anxious until I realized these are just some people's views.

I was afraid of this, too, when I first figured out what I was. Sometimes I still feel like I'm 'not agender enough' or whatever, because I don't have as much dysphoria as some people... but I try not to let it get to me. Like you said, everyone is different and we all express ourselves in different ways :D
Pokémon Discussion / Re: RBY to be released on the 3DS Virtual Console

As far as I'm aware, it's local wireless only, no Wi-Fi.
Pokémon Discussion / RBY to be released on the 3DS Virtual Console
« on: November 12, 2015, 04:34:44 pm »
As announced on the Nintendo Direct today, Red, Blue and Yellow will be released on the 3DS's Virtual Console on February 26th

Bulbapedia's tweet about it, this is brand new so I don't think it's been posted to anything yet apart from Twitter (at the time of making this topic, anyway)

One of the coolest parts about this, I think, is that it apparently uses the 3DS's Wireless communication to link battle and trade. I wonder how many things they fixed/patched...?

Perhaps you guys will find new and interesting ways to break it  :P
