I liked Unova for the region itself, never cared for the Pokemon, I *love* Unova and its music and secrets and quests

Kalos has Z came out would have overtaken Hoenn for me. I wish XY are given justice when the remakes ever come out

Unlikely. That's Pokemon, Kingdom Hearts, Dragonball, Naruto,... to a lesser degree Assassins Creed.

Their new iterations are all dumpster fires. All series I once enjoyed but can now only enjoy the older versions.

Speaking of... I'm going to continue my DBZ rewatch, just hit the early buu saga.

XY can be best comparable to Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2, but in some ways was more tragic:

-Potentially good plot dealing with the spirits of the past's regret over the use of a destructive super weapon
-New "giant"/"mega" monsters/forms
-Both come out super half-baked with a pisspoor post-game

But in the end, Joker 2 got the amazing "Professional" Re-Release which was glorious. XY got... Nothing. Least it's evened out by Americans never getting to experience DQMJ2:PRO

I liked Megas, they just did what they always do and gave them to popular Pokemon rather than use them as a balancing tool to make irrelevant Pokemon better.

Like all the generations have their own sort of stat spread and gen 1 tended to be more well rounded with each generation creeping up the stat totals and making stats more specialized.

130-150 on any individual stat used to be reserved for top tier legendaries and now basically any old Pokemon has 130 in at least one stat.

Older Pokemon needed that same boon to keep up.

I remember when I first thought megas were a permanent evolution.

Valid Kricketune idea:

Fury Cutter w/ Metronome, Sticky Web, Perish Song, [Some Fourth Thing, maybe Aerial Ace or Taunt]

Max out Attack, have something with Cosmic Power and Baton Pass set up defensive buffs...like, say, for instance, this Lopunny I have with Cosmic Power and Baton Pass. :mhm

Hey, since my White version of 11+ years crapped out, I need something decent to take up my time raising, goddamit. :C

Pitting this Kricketune up against the "competitive" Gym Leaders has mixed, but generally favorable results. :doge

@Nep Nep

Please validate my Kricketune

I'm surprised you swept him with a defense boosting move. Esp if you weren't over levelled. Though his party in D/P is pretty average power wise.

If it was platinum though I'm suitably impressed.
