Zygarde looks ehhhhh (the concept of him changing appearance when powering up a certain percentage is neat though) but potential megafrog looks dope. But we might not even be getting Charizard X vs Y either now? Bah.

I don't even post here that much but anything but I can't just ignore a thread that mentions Sinnoh in its title <3

Do you guys think that Detective Pikachu game is still a thing? Wasn't that supposed to release this year too? Maybe they're saving it for the 20th.
I'm really missing these big Pokémon spin-offs, where's my new Pokémon Ranger anyway? :(

A reason I can think of introducing weaker Zygarde forms is that you'll be able to get and use Zygarde Core early on and power it up throughout the game

*pokes head in*

After the while ID thread thing happened, I decided to check and see my ability to identify every Pokemon by picture. As it turns out, I am really close to remembering them all (names):

Code:

G1	0	151	0.00%
G2	1	100	1.00%
G3	0	135	0.00%
G4	1	107	0.93%
G5	12	156	7.69%
G6	6	72	8.33%
Total	20	721	2.77%
So as it turns out, I can recall 97% of names, with a picture. The ones I missed are Dunsparce, Rampardos, Gigalith, Scolipede, Basculin, Krokorok, Sigilyph, Emolga, Ferroseed, Ferrothorn, Tynamo, Bouffalant, Mandibuzz, Heatmor, Spewpa, Pyroar, Swirlix, Carbink, Gourgeist, and Avalugg. OF those, I always forget about Dunsparce...

Some of the ones I remember took me a long time, though - the names will come to me when I'm doing something else. Others I remember in chains - I remember the 4 trade evos of G1 as a group, all early bugs/birds as a group. When I can't remember, I recollect my playthrough of each game, as well as gym leader teams.

In any case, I need practice :p

They should go all the way and make Zygarde Core as your starter, with starter-level performance. :P

But if it's central to the game's plot, how would they make sure the player doesn't just deposit it at the very beginning and never power it up?

I'm not following the game a lot but it seems to be shape up better than Gates of Infiity, which is great for me.

It's not just that. I don't like the idea of spending an hour in a dungeon, only to lose and get nothing whatsoever from it.

That said, I'll be hooking up my Youtube (http://www.youtube.com/SerebiiSPP) up to Super Mystery Dungeon once I've done a bit of it and upload Meowth's Dungeon videos

I like that as soon as it became a Talonflame, it just started spamming Brave Bird.

Despite it having Flame Body, that's very true to Talonflame :p

I find the Mystery Dungeon games to be as fun as the mainline games. I really like the gameplay.

And when it comes to losing in dungeons, I don't really have any problem with that, but I can see how it bothers some. Some dungeons have checkpoints, where you can save. I don't remember any dungeons that took one hour to beat aside from the optional ones though.
