• 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.

    For more information, see this thread

all I want somthing with that 'poipole' thing the ultra recon sqaud has in Ultra sun/moon.

So most likely a futuristic city, based on somewhere OTHER THAN JAPAN, with rural/countriside in the edges, and a small island down south that is covered in ice.

Also, I want the orange islands and more ultra beasts (like poipole!)

So, who else wants Ultra Burst to be the new thing of gen 8? What I mean is, without introducing anything new, Gamefreak takes Ultra Burst and expands it. The idea I have is very simple. Using a new bracelet, it has a power I like to call Burst Forge. Taking a Z-Crystal and a Mega Stone, it forges them into a new Ultra Gem. Ultra Gems would be Z-Moves that then trigger all existing Mega Evolutions, while also creating new Burst Evolutions for existing mega capable Pokemon. Think of it like this:
Garchomp with a Ground Ultra Gem would mega evolve into the current Mega Garchomp, but a Steel Ultra Gem would trigger a Burst Evo with an Ultra Garchomp that is now Dragon/Steel. Or an Ultra Ampharos that is triggered by a Psychic Ultra Gem, now being Electric/Psychic instead of Electric/Dragon.

I don't think that's gonna happen. It will make Megas even more powerful than they already are.

And @Mitchman's idea will give the same few special snowflakes effectively 18 different Megas while leaving non-Megas down in the ditches.
I mentioned two examples, but forgot to add that only in special cases can you forge an Ultra Gem of different typing. Like, you aren't gonna get multitype mega evos for every mega, that would be ridiculous.

That's what I thought that was. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

really cool idea but for other pokes that didn't get Z or Mega stones already. (hope other starters that didnt get megas get them)
