    Should Gender play a bigger role?

    I've thought of a couple ways that gender could play a bigger role in the games. I had a third but it was a stretch. Please read and comment. And if you guys don't like the second option I'll just delete it. Gender affecting strength, speed and potency - Let's say if a male version of a...

    Am I the only one who doesn't like evolution through trading?

    I get that they want to encourage players to trade pokemon and that it can be fun for some but everytime I do it I feel very underwhelmed. It doesn't have that special feeling like leveling up has. Even using a stone on a pokemon can feel rewarding if you use it at the time you feel is right...

    Best old game for a beginner?

    Question about Arceus

    Keep in mind that I have not seen any movie or special involving Arceus. If Arceus is a god or god, why did he create Humans who are (in most cases) superior to Pokemon? Pokemon may be strong but they can't do most of the things Humans can. Plus Humans capture, control and pit Pokemon...

    Hi, I'm new!

    Hi, I'm Cyborger. To start off I'm going to be honest and say that I'm only really here for the games. I stopped watching the show after Dawn was introduced. I never read the manga and I stopped playing the card game after YuGiOh came out. Then I quit YuGiOh and went to Magic: The Gathering and...
