    LT Weekly Poll #42 Did you ever find a Munchlax on a honey tree?

    I managed to finally find one on Diamond about... 3 years ago, I think, on the route north-east of Solaceon Town before reaching Veilstone City. Up to then, I thought that I would be within the doomed majority to never, ever find one in the Gen 4 games! Munchlax was also assigned to me as a...

    SPOILERS: The Official Travelog + Let's Play Thread

    I started up my newest Kanto adventure with Let's Go Pikachu last night, and I would say that the game's strongest suit so far is its graphics. A HD Pokemon adventure is as much a novelty in 2018 as a 3D one was with X/Y in 2013. Equally so, I am impressed with the level of interaction with the...

    SPOILERS: Official Let's Go Pikachu/Let's Go Eevee Discussion Thread

    The more that I watch the footage from E3's Treehouse and direct feeds, the more that I question Game Freak's decision to completely leave wild battles out of LGPE. With the graphical power of the Switch, I would love every opportunity to see the Pokemon world live and breathe (Pokemon in the...

    SPOILERS: Official Let's Go Pikachu/Let's Go Eevee Discussion Thread

    No Johto?! No party... These games are the definition of a mixed bag for me. Kanto in 3D is nice, as is the connectivity with Go and general accessibility for first-time players. I also approve of mechanics such as the return of following Pokemon and even the option to ride eligible critters...

    GSC Playthrough Thread (VC releases)

    Playing through the VC versions of Gen 1 and 2 has truly made me realise how little time and mental capacity I have, as an adult with various commitments, for playing the Pokemon games nowadays. Where it used to take me 2 weeks maximum to reach the Elite 4 in most of the games, these are now...

    GSC Playthrough Thread (VC releases)

    I downloaded Silver after buying both it and Gold's physical boxed releases last Friday, and since then I have made slow progress. Today I have reached Goldenrod City with the following team - still waiting for the Egg to hatch: For this playthrough, I have decided to largely go with Pokemon...

    GS (no C) Virtual Console Thread

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one to notice these. Both occurrences seemed jarring to me. I purchased the boxed edition of Gold from GAME during my lunch break at work yesterday and had Silver delivered from the Nintendo UK Store. After marvelling at the nostalgia of the box art, I downloaded...

    Pokémon Evolution/Capture/Release Thread

    If any character were to catch Jigglypuff, I would hope for it to be Misty since she was the one who expressed a desire to catch it in its debut episode. That said, I think that it still fills the niche as a recurring gag Pokemon very well even after all these years. I'm really glad that it...

    Pokémon Evolution/Capture/Release Thread

    I think there might be time to touch upon a sizeable number of Ash's Pokemon while thrusting one or two into the spotlight. The Right Place and the Right Mime in AG did this admirably over one episode. From memory, Tauros, Bayleef, Bulbasaur, Snorlax and Phanpy all had meaningful interactions...

    Pokémon Evolution/Capture/Release Thread

    Maybe one of Ash's reserve Pokemon could evolve during the Kanto arc - kind of similar to Phanpy when it returned in AG or Cyndaquil in DP. Given that the arc occurs prior to the GSC Virtual Console launch, I wouldn't mind seeing Totodile finally evolve into Croconaw through a (TR?) dispute at...

    Unpopular in-game Pokemon

    Sneasel's Pokémon Moon Pokedex Entry states: I recall that in an episode of the anime, a Johto filler episode, townsfolk were disgruntled by a Yanma that kept shattering windows due to the speed of its fluttering wings. I'm not sure if this is a concern that people share in the gameverse, but...

    Charizard's return to the anime. For or against?

    I would be all for another Charizard return as long as it benefits the character's development. Its return for BW was a great nostalgia trip (apart from overhauling its old moveset - Dragonbreath, Overheat, Seismic Toss: BE GONE! Hullo there, generic Slash and slightly impressive Dragon Tail)...

    Halloween promotion to run for Pokémon GO: Catch spooky Pokémon, earn bonus Candy from Oct. ...

    Well, considering all of the Pokemon being given boosted encounter rates are already nauseatingly common in my area, I won't get too excited on that front. Double Candies for transferring/catching and less walking for Candy from Buddy Pokemon will be extremely useful, though. Really looking...

    Ash Greninja Confirmed!

    I'm really happy that we finally have closure on Ash-Greninja. I couldn't have imagined a different way for it to be included in the games, so I am satisfied with the method of obtaining it. It does seem rather strange that our player character will have the ability to form a bond and wield the...

    Alola Variant Pokemon: Thoughts and Predictions

    Welp... this goes some way to fulfilling my pipe dream. Poison/Steel Nidoking & Nidoqueen let's GO! I couldn't believe my eyes when I opened the trailer at my desk at work and saw that Exeggutor. Can't quite get my head around its Alolan design, but I fell in love with Ice type Vulpix/Ninetales...

    Pokémon Evolution/Capture/Release Thread

    Welp, with all the exposure and glorification that Mega Charizard X has enjoyed through Alain's ownership, I hope that Y eventually gets its time in the sun :) after being OHKO'd by its cousin today. As Trevor's MCY will likely never appear again, perhaps the much speculated plot element of Ash...

    SPECULATION: Thoughts on a Gen II VC release?

    I loaded my Crystal cartridge for the first time in a few months last night and found that the internal battery has finally died. That marks the end of an era as both my Silver and Crystal GB cartridges are now unplayable. RIP Easter the Chansey, called such as I was searching for one holding a...

    SPECULATION: Thoughts on a Gen II VC release?

    Going by merchandise trends, i'd say that GSC being released on the Virtual Console soon is fairly likely. There is a Johto edition Monopoly on the horizon, as well as this: Oh, and there's also the recent Johto Classic Battle Competition, so it seems that Game Freak/The Pokemon Company are...

    PREVIEW: XY121: The Bewildering Woods... The Dawn of Evolution!

    Something feels familiar and somewhat edgy about Ash's behaviour when Serena finds him at the end of the preview... The fact there is an ongoing blizzard in this episode can only have helped cement this vibe. :p XYZ had a very iffy start, but I have to say I am gripped by the Ash-Greninja...

    Gen I VC Discussion Thread

    While playing the game, press the Home button on your 3DS and (without closing down the game) open the Miiverse app. This lets you post a screenshot of your game in its current state to your Play Journal or Screenshot Album. After doing that, you can copy and paste the screenshot from a browser...
