    Pokédex Entries...for Humans!

    I thought this would be a neat thread and something different. Why not try your hand at making Pokédex entries for the human characters of the Pokémon video games! You can use main characters, Gym Leaders, Champions, villainous characters, Trainer Classes, etc. As long as they are named or have...

    Preview Pokemon: Twilight Wings

    Didn't see a thread about this (which makes sense since this was just announced today), so I figured I'd make it. There's a new Pokemon Generations-esque animation coming in January (starting on the 15th), titled Pokemon: Twilight Wings. These 5 minute episodes, of which there will only be 7 of...

    Dynamax: Thoughts, Feelings, or Concerns

    This seems to be the main new gimmick for Generation 8. As a reminder: "Dynamax is a phenomenon unique to specific locations in the Galar region, where Pokémon are able to take on gigantic appearances. Pokémon from the Galar region are capable of Dynamaxing, and the Dynamax Pokémon become...

    Gen 8 Movepool Update Speculation Thread

    What new moves do you think will be given to Pokemon? Any you'd like to see? Even any taken away? Updated movepools are one of my favorite things about new Pokemon games, and I'm sure the transition to Gen 8 will help several Pokemon out (either greatly or in a small dose).

    New Pokemon Species Discussion

    What kinds of new Pokemon would you all like to see? You can include type combinations, design ideas, cross/generational-evolutions, etc. Also, how many new Pokemon do you think will be introduced in the Galar region? What amount would you like? I'd like 80-100.

    I was wondering if you'd all could help out. I've been curious lately as to which of the two games has been more popular? Let's Go Pikachu or Eevee? Is there a certain overall sales site I can view? Has one been doing better with western audiences than in Japan? Given all the Let's Plays...

    Can Team Rocket ever have another main mascot Pokemon?

    What do you all think? Do you think the TRio can ever make room for another core member as important and popular as Wobbuffet? Or do you think the balance between the current four members is all that is needed? If you think they can, is there a Pokemon you'd like to see personally? Or was...

    If Mega Evolution was used more liberally in XY?

    As the progenitors of Mega Evolution, I felt that XY didn't really utilize the phenomenon as much as they could have. Barring yourself, about four other Trainers actually use (3 if you don't count Korrina utilizing it for tutorial purposes). I get that it's a rare possession of ability to have...
