    Your "FUUUUU" moments :D

    The first time I tried to do a Nuzlocke was in Platinum. I get to the first battle with Barry, and his Turtwig gets 3 critical hits on my Piplup. Mizuki the Piplup died before I had a chance to catch any other pokemon. T_T FUUUUUUUUUU

    Naming characters vs. Using default names

    Starting with White, I've always named my female protagonist either Sicily or Luciana based on an OC of mine. In AS I named the protagonist Haruka because I'm also used to May being in the anime and it's hard for me to call her anything else. The only time I've ever played as the male...

    Rules Bulbagarden Forum Rules - *New set valid immediately*

    Is it okay to bump an old thread? I wanted to start a new thread in the video game forum but I've found that one already exists, but it's about a year old. Is it okay to bump it or no?

    Rival Showdown! Who's your favorite rival?

    I didn't put Wally on the poll because you only battle him twice in the game while you battle Brendan/May 4 times. But even then I probably should have included him since you battle him in Victory Road. He just didn't feel much like a rival since you didn't encounter him often, but he does...

    Most annoying gym puzzles

    Candice's puzzle drove me crazy. It took me 3 days to finally get to her. Lt. Surge's also annoyed me because the switches would always reset if you didn't pick the right one.

    How did you first react to discovering your rival as Champion in Gen 1?

    I got into the games late so I didn't get to play a Kanto game until FireRed came out, but I was still pretty new with the Pokemon games and I made sure to avoid spoilers about the older games. When I first saw Blue standing in the Champion room, I was less shocked and more just wondering how...

    Rival Showdown! Who's your favorite rival?

    I didn't include Wally, Shauna, Tierno, or Trevor in the poll only because I consider Brendan/May as your primary rival in the Hoenn games and Calem/Serena your primary rival in XY (and I didn't want the poll to be too long) but they still count so if one of them is your favorite then say so :)...

    ORAS Trainer Travelog

    Just got to Fortree City today. My team is at a decent level (all in the 30s) but because I'm having trouble deciding on a final team I keep swapping out pokemon like crazy ^^' Currently I have Sceptile (39), Manectric (36), Altaria (36), Gardevoir (35), Lombre (34), and Camerupt (35) I swap...

    The Minor Complaint Thread

    I don't know if this is just me, but Brendan is a lot lighter in the game than in the artwork. In his official artwork he has a bit of a tan but in the actual game he's as light as most of the other characters. I just found that kind of weird ^^' Speaking of Brendan, he doesn't seem as snarky...

    Re: Simple Questions + Simple Answers: ORAS Edition Crap, I was hoping to roast Steven's steel types in the Elite 4 with a Mega Camerupt, but oh well. And I guess I'll wait until after I get the Fortree badge for the Manectrite because I'm honestly too lazy to go all the way back towards...

    Simple Questions / Simple Answers (Gens 1-7)

    I need a little advice on my Crystal team. As of now I have 7 badges and I'm fighting Team Rocket in the Radio Tower. I want to add an Ice type to my team later on because I'll need one for Clair and Lance once I get to that point, and that means I'll have to swap someone out on my team...

    Would you watch the Pokemon anime if it revamp every several years?

    I would definitely continue to watch the series if each generation has new protagonists. I think that would make the anime more interesting and it would equal more promotion for the games since they would be using the game protagonists each generation. And to answer each point listed above: 1...

    Would the anime be as successful today if they replaced Ash early on?

    What makes Pokemon different then anime like Sailor Moon or Dragon Ball is that the Pokemon anime solely exists in order to promote the games that it's based on. Therefore in my opinion, in order to promote the games even further it would make sense to use the game protagonists in the series. I...

    Preview Upcoming Summer Camp arc

    I'm curious about what goals those three will have in the anime. I can see Serena and Shauna having a similar problem of not knowing what they want to do just yet and towards the end of the arc they'll find something that they will want to go for.

    Would the anime be as successful today if they replaced Ash early on?

    I'm kind of curious about how popular Ash is in Japan. How does he rank in character polls? I know that Pikachu is the mascot of the entire franchise, but is Ash heavily promoted in Japan as well? I'm also kind of curious as to how Ash ranks in comparison to protagonists from other series. It...
