    I want somewhere to put whatever the hell I'm doing playing Pokémon instead of interspaced between google docs and my notebook.

    I am an avid casual player of Pokémon, and since it is holiday time for me I have been playing Pokémon games via roms or my cartridges that sometimes work.

    I like NUF and I like Pokémon so I decided to make a sort of listing of the Game's and what I'm doing on them on this doc and make the OP some sort of directory.
    I'll also post related artworks to the game's I'm playing I've finished (because I have a lot of unfinished one's lying around) as well.

    This thread can also be a discussion about the game's I'm playing, people's thoughts or if people want to join me in for wholesome Pokémon challenges!

    Notes: I used the Pokémon Randomiser to replace one of the starter pokémon with Jolteon. Since for the first few levels it learn's nothing decent, I really struggled but afterwards it was steamroll after steamroll. It's actually pretty fun!

    notes: I hacked in random starters and chose 1 of them which was Aron. He stopped being very useful however after the first 2 gyms, and never really needed to use him either, but in the champion fight against Iris he was the real MVP. Took down the 2nd half of her team.

    Notes: Making a Hub World because I have some Gen 4 game's that need some spring cleaning before I delete their current saved data. I'm mostly using a DS for playing the game, but since I'm making use of the Dream Radar on the 3DS, I switch over that to transfer Pokémon. Currently got a level 20 Therian form Tornadus in the PC I'm wondering if I should use... hm.

    Notes: I finally payed for Pokémon Bank again and then I promptly remembered that my old hub world was Pokemon White and it is a huge pain to sort through boxes in it, I abandoned some of my Pokémon to be deleted... I had a Decidueye and a Mudsdale but I hated the damn owl. It was 'adequate' and I didn't have any weird affection for me to ignore it! So I chucked it out, shifted through my Bank, got a Volcarona, Ninetails and a bunch of other water types, including Swampert.
    Bred like 10 of them each, and picked what seemed to be the best ones although I'm a bit salty that I got a bunch of modest mudkips but not a single modest vulpix or larvesta...
    Just found a Dusk stone too, so I finally evolved my Murkrow and ditched the eviolite, bless it's stone heart. It can now hang out with Larvesta till it evolves. I kinda chucked Mudsdale although it is actually good cause I want an Ultra Beast on my team and Waver covers that nice Ground typing. Made a chart and everything on what Pokémon to get, and the disavantages/advantages. + what I actually wanted on my team lol.

    Not going to talk about it. I mean I'd still enjoy it, sure but it's just low-key disappointing. I'm just hoping that the player characters don't look like a husk while doing anything. It still bothers me while playing Moon/Sun or Ultra Moon :sweating_profusely:
    I do my best to ignore it though!
    Being will-fully blind to GameFreaks faults is great! no more worries for the rest of my days~! :blobparty:

    Tbh, I love the Switch. With all the crap Microsoft and Sony have been pulling recently ( like forcing censorship on games and forcing policies banning certain "kinds" of "hate" speech by banning accounts outright and denying them access to products they have bought) I pretty much only use my gaming PC and the Switch as a console. The only bad thing I can say about the Switch is the lack of social UI and functions; I;E Achievements and party/chat function. Otherwise, I don't have anything bad to say about it. I guess the fact it costs another 70$ for a good controller (pro) is a bummer. But ya, have fun with it, it's awesome.

    oh wow. I'm mostly in the Nintendo Crowd, and learning about Microsoft and everything else via Osmosis.. but wow thats terrible. Reminds me a bit about the lack of any official 'gambling' places in the recent pokemon games.. probably more overt in your cases. :(

    I have heard some criticism about the bad lack of communication and chatting online on the switch. Tbh the best nintendo chat option I know of is the Pictochat which came out as a software on the DS.

    The last time's I've tried to bother was on Pokemon X and Mario Kart 7... was very rubbish and not really worth mentioning. Otherwise quite excited to play other than the motion controls! Was fun for Wii Sports and the like, but for everything else it was quite rubbish. Not exactly my cup of tea.

    And will do! :blobsalute:

    Notes: Praying to find a dark type to replace Mightyena with because it's pretty bad with the physical/special split going on and its just not great.. I also forgot to put it's name in all caps so its bothering me a bit. *sigh*. sort of casual run on my phone, the only rom on my phone atm. The skitty is so damn rare too, so I'm quite lucky to get it. I'm also including a sort of Shiny clause that's up to me how I want to run it. I started it before my White 2 run, and this is where I got the name 'Much'Moore' from. It's actually an Icecream brand but it has 'ore' in it. so it's a pun! fuahahaha!
    used to own the rom but I lost it. Which really sucks tbh.

    Seriously? I mean I had some fun with the videochat feature from Pokemon BW/BW2 but that's pretty nasty :blobfearful:
    I think I heard some rumours about it, but I wasn't really in an area where people owned a nintendo, so I didn't hear much about it.

    But yeah, I guess that definitely makes sense. But I'd still like a freedom towards at least chatting with other people, rather than clicking pre-made messages or emojis.
    I mean, in Pokemon TCG that's exactly what happens and it does make it safer and less drama caused by shitty users but.. pulls down the overall user experience. I can only hope in the future they'll include a software, while not including video features, will at least make use of the microphone in it. I have heard of some games making use of it to have more chat capabilities which is nice! now we just got to wait for the official nintendo products to include it too. Probably. Perhaps not, it has been 2 years in the Switch's lifecycle... orz

    must be awkward having to pull out your phone to chat with others too :\
    Might as well use skype or discord imo

    I've been wandering. Are you ever gonna stop playing pokemon? I can honestly imagine you as a grandma yelling at her grandkids that Pokémon are the best thing ever.

    Probably not. I'm actually less in-your-face about Pokemon irl >_>
    And I respect other people's opinions!
    but stopping playing pokemon? I will take breaks, probably even ones for a few years but I will never stop permanently playing it!
    I also now have Pokemon mobile games to full my addiction
