• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

    Can confirm that inaudible yawns are still contagious. Heck, just this discussion about yawning is making me yawn... I also have a co-worker who yawns very loudly, and it sucks because then everyone starts.

    XYORAS SMUSUM Cloaked in flames, the user dances and flaps its wings. This may also raise the user's Sp. Atk stat. Ho-Oh maybe, but first you show me where the wings are on those other Pokemon.

    Seriously? What "normal rules"? Manaphy and Xurkitree both clearly glow when they use the move, and neither emit light from their tails. I would give you the argument about bioluminescence for Manaphy, but Xurkitree clearly uses electricity to make its head glow for the move, and neither are...

    Manaphy and Xurkitree can learn Tail Glow, though, and Ampharos is clearly capable of glowing brightly enough to be a lighthouse beacon.

    Every other Solar Power user gets Sunny Day, though. Moreover, I rather disagree with your assessment that Solar Power is a bad ability for Heliolisk; effectively, it provides a Life Orb boost for the user to abuse on top of the other benefits of sun, while still holding an item. (although to be...

    The part that doesn't make sense to me about Toxic is that Pokemon are able to inflict Toxic on other Pokemon of the same species. This is especially puzzling given that the in-game animation generally shows the user secreting the toxins from their body.

    Heat Rotom is an electrical poltergeist that has possessed a freaking oven. Using that as a justification for Magnezone is like comparing apples to chicken. And the bit about other Pokemon using moves like iron tail is rather irrelevant to what Magnezone can or can't do. And yes, trapping is...

    Can we stop talking about the Meissner-Ochsenfeld effect? Not only does it only apply to superconductors, but it also only applies during their transition to the superconducting state, which is generally less than -250 degrees Celsius. Clearly the effect has no bearing on ambient temperatures...

    The fact that metal is so conductive means that it actually heats up less compared to other materials by coursing electricity through it. Given that and the fact that Magnezone is essentially a giant computer anyway, it really has no business using fire-type moves. On a somewhat related but...

    I always interpreted Moonblast as the user drawing on the light reflected off the moon, similar to how Moonlight allows the user's HP to be restored by the moonlight (Stadium2 description). Given this, it makes sense that a Pokemon associated with the new moon could not draw on the moon's light...

    Lycanroc and Nihilego (and technically Silvally-rock) are the only rock types with zero options for ground-type coverage. Even Kabutops, with a very similar stat distribution to Lycanroc, gets earth power. ____ Also, why can't Incineroar have sucker punch?
