    I need help coming up with a Fakemon name.

    Putting this here since really have no other clue where to put it. I'm trying to put the finising touches on a list of Pokémon I came up with for a fan game (which will probably never get made, but I can dream), and I'm stuck on a few that still need names. One in particular is based on a...

    Pokemon Duel issues

    I just downloaded Pokemon Duel the other day, and it's amazing! However, I've run into an issue; the timer doesn't seem to run while the mobile device is asleep. It's really frustrating, because I had a Timed Booster opening, and last night there were about three hours left. This morning, I turn...

    Let's Play advice

    I'm hoping to start doing Let's Plays on my YouTube channel sometime in the near future, and I'd love to do some Pokémon LPs if I ever get the ability to, but I'm not sure exactly what Nintendo's policy is on LPs of their first-party games. I've heard a few conflicting accounts, and it sounds...

    Crystal Issues

    If this sort of thread already exists, I apologize, but I don't feel like browsing through the entire forum looking for it. I just restarted my copy of Crystal, got to Violet City, saved, and shut the game off for a bit to figure out why YouTube apparently decided to skip three videos on the...

    Fossil Pokémon's original typings

    We all know that Fossil Pokémon are all at least part Rock-type. Bulbapedia's article on them suggests that this may be due to the method by which they are obtained in-game. If this is the case, then their original typings may very well have been different back before they died out. Looking at...

    Superhero types

    If you could assign Pokémon types to superheroes (or supervillains, if you want), what would their types (and abilities and moves if you want to get that creative) be? I'm going to be posting my thoughts on four heroes from Marvel and DC respectively: Captain America: Normal/Fighting Ability...

    What happens when a Trainer dies?

    A thought occurred to me sometime last year: When a Trainer dies, what happens to their Pokémon? Do the Pokémon get released? Are the Pokéballs buried with the body? Are the Pokémon passed on to the Trainer's relatives? This was such an intriguing question that it ended up giving me an...

    Game Corner Alternatives

    Back in 2010, when I realized how freaking difficult Voltorb Flip was, I started brainstorming ideas of what they could have done instead in the localized versions. I mean, a Minesweeper variant is just a huge waste of the touch screen's potential. I thought it would have been better if someone...
  9. Pokémon Spectrum


    Hi! I'm new here! The site told me to introduce myself here, so I guess I'll do that. I've been a Pokémon fan since the start of the anime. My first game was Pokémon Silver, my first Starter was Cyndaquil, and my favorite game so far is Pokémon Y, because that's the closest I've ever gotten...
