The thing about Vivillon and why it’s evil is because you need all of them.

But yeah, as long as they don’t add another new type anytime soon, I’m OK. A change in the meta is good and all but there aren’t many fairies I like that weren’t from older games (like Wigglytuff) or thise that look more focused on one type (Mimikyu)

WE DON'T NEED ANY MORE TYPES OK

fairy types "balancing the meta" is bull****. they only made things worse.

also, Kyogre's in GO now.

my MONSTER CONDOM for my MAGNUM AMIIBO DONG




This is the only non smash Pokémon amiibo ever.



Wasn't there a Shadow Mewtwo Amiibo card for Pokken?

The Pokkén DLC is wayyyy overpriced. I want to play Blastoise mildly but it isn't worth it at all especially with few single player modes.

Lost 51st consecutive match in Battle Tower to Regice freeze hax. Feelsbadman.
The RS AI in Battle Tower is so terrible and I love it. MAYBE YOU COULD HIT SKARMORY IF YOU USED NON-GROUND MOVES THAT AREN'T TOXIC YOU FOOLS

I have all the Contest Ribbons on Arcanine now so, time to update everyone on that I guess. I'm surprised how fast getting Ribbons actually is...

[User Posted Image]


Cute - 10/1/18
Contest Moveset: Charm, Rest, Flamethrower, Sunny Day
Can't remember, I think this one went by the smoothest. Pretty sure I got each of these Ribbons on the first try and I honestly don't remember any other contestants. Charm was helpful and made for a great combo with Rest, which kept me safe. In fact I tackled Cute Contests first because of Charm (an XD-exclusive move for Growlithe only, meaning I could not relearn it). This was a deceitful first impression of these contests.

Beauty - 10/1/18
Contest Moveset: Flamethrower, Sunny Day, Charm, Rest
Easy sweep, the combo was killer and my boy's Beauty was high. Can't remember how much those Cute moves helped but I believe Rest did work in a pinch once or twice and they helped to keep the applause under control.

I only got paintings for Cute and Beauty Contests, but I just cared about the Artist Ribbon and actually thought that would need more effort so it's fine. If I really want more paintings of Arcanine, I can just use a clone from Emerald with better moves, or a different Arcanine with more specialized Conditions. (Also the GBA games make for one of the worst gens and my least favorite and I'll never play them again and see those paintings anyway, fite me)

Cool - 12/1/18
Contest Moveset: ExtremeSpeed, Iron Tail, Sunny Day, Flamethrower
Very annoying, made me frustrated, took way longer than any other category. It feels like I won this through luck. There's such a variety of Pokémon in the Master rank here and they had the scariest strategies to me.
Shoutout to Taria and that ridiculous Dragon Dance + Hyper Beam... That thankfully I beat in my winning match. I couldn't believe that.
ExtremeSpeed helped to steal full applause a few times, though there were others like Welow with Agility who also used speed-boosting moves after me and stole it instead. Thankfully that didn't happen too often and not in any matches I was really hopeful about.
One more honorable mention to Casty for inspiring the "disrupt" strategy I ended up using for Smart and Tough Contests.
Oh, and Wobet ended up using Destiny Bond on its second turn once. I knew NPCs could do stuff like that on Turn 4, but Turn 2? I'm never going to forget that sheer stupidity.

Tough - 12/1/18
Contest Moveset: ExtremeSpeed, Strength, Sunny Day, Flamethrower
Very annoying and Master Rank took repeats, but not the hardest. Don't feel like I have a ton to say except I was really just hoping for Lairn to be dumb or not show up because of the annoying combos it used. Cubin was also a strong opponent but weirdly, never managed to beat me. Rados beat me a couple of times but I don't have much to say about it except... It used a pretty similar combo-spam style to me. Heh. I have a weird respect for it, but it helps that I already like Gyarados.
That was all that really sticks with me about this category and Lairn was all that really bothered me. I can't remember it that well because most of it just breezed by despite a lack of good Tough moves on me.

The "disrupt" strategy I mentioned was really just using disruptive moves to keep the applause meter low. Then nobody could use that for a comeback and I didn't really have to plan around it. I only used Strength to take full applause once or twice in all my Tough Contest attempts. If I expected applause to be high in the next turn I could also use ExtremeSpeed in advance to then use Sunny Day while, hopefully, the applause meter was at 3 or 4- something I did in the Smart category too.
At this point I was annoyed of trying to get more moves, and since I managed to win the Tough contests relying mostly on my "disrupt" strategy I went into Smart contests with no Smart moves. I could have grabbed Odor Sleuth, but honestly, it didn't sound useful to me.

Smart - 13/1/18 (at like 1 am lol)
Contest Moveset: ExtremeSpeed, Sunny Day, Flamethrower, Bite
The final category I tackled was thankfully much easier than my Tough or Smart contests. Master Rank only took 2-3 retries, and while opponents did a good job with annoying strategies that scrambled up matches, I didn't find the strategies actually threatening because only Casty really managed to stack up hearts against me.
My winning Master Rank match was hilariously clumsy and had a bunch of missed turns, everyone getting only 2-3 hearts whenever they got them, but... Well, everyone suffered from it. I only managed to pull through with a final Sunny Day + Flamethrower that didn't get disrupted, despite Arcanine getting nervous the other time I tried to set it up.
I think I'm lucky Casty wasn't in that match because its Sunny Day + Weather Ball probably could have floored me, or at least matched me and won with Casty's higher condition. I never thought Castform could seem so threatening.

Master Rank Contests aren't really as hard as people say. Just annoying at times.

Yeah, there was.
Also, Pokemon Rumble U had NFC figures which were kinda like a spiritual predecessor of amiibo.

Oh **** I always forget about that, but even so that's a card rather than an actual amiibo.

Good ideas, but you are completely blocked by stuff like Aggron. Also none of Ambipom’s abilities benefit this moveset, as Acrobatics is only affected if it isn’t doubled.

I caught my first non-legendary wormhole shiny last Friday which was a Swanna.

I went back to Pokeradar chaining on Platinum yesterday and caught a shiny Staravia from a chain of 40 and a shiny Bibarel from a chain of 14.
