  1. Eh, that competition was a bit of a wet fart. It's fine in theory, but then it just devolves into people swapping Pokémon, desperate to get the opponent to run out of PP. Metronome matches kinda need a gentleman's agreement to ban swapping Pokémon out. Probably would have to disallow items too, makes it too easy to tank everything. A pity that. Well, if anyone wants to have a Metronome fight with me, go ahead.
  2. Just a final reminder that if you want to enter the Metronome only tournament, you have to register today.
  3. Hey. @Julius. Got a favour to ask. Have you cleaned out Ramanas Park yet? Because I have, and would appreciate a trade session to get the 4 Diamond exclusives there.
  4. If there's one thing about Legends: Arceus that I'm absolutely certain of, is that catching thousands of Pokémon is going to be how you progress. Battling itself is going to play second fiddle, just like Let's Go. So I can believe that IV's are going to be replaced by that candy system. You know, the candy system that made competitive battling in that game die on it's arse stupidly quick. But then, I don't expect multiplayer to be a thing in Legends, so meh. But yeah, the game is defo gonna be solely about capturing a stupid amount of Pokémon over and over again.
  5. Will Mario Kart 9 release on the Switch?

    See, that's what rubs me up the wrong way. The breadth of customisation options Tour has is mostly there to encourage people to engage with the awful gacha system. You remove that, and there's not much reason to do that sort of thing on that sort of scale. And that sucks.
  6. NEO: The World Ends With You

    I bought it. The original game, while confusing, was a fun time. That said, I bought, like, 6 other RPG's as well in that sale, so no idea when I'll feel like starting it, but I will.
  7. Will Mario Kart 9 release on the Switch?

    You realise Nintendo consider Mario Kart Tour the ninth entry already, right? That can stay off the Switch, thank you very much. I actually think they'll do this. But they'll still call it Mario Kart. Animal Crossing, Link, and later, Splatoon has already garnered a positive reception from players. Why not expand on that? That said, there needs to be a balance. Mario stuff should still be front and center. Making up the majority of tracks, characters, and items. But I wanna see more Ninty series get in. Oh, and hit up Microsoft for Banjo. He literally debuted in a Nintendo kart racer game and is from the DK universe, he belongs in Mario Kart as much as DK and Diddy do. Do it!
  8. General Switch Discussion

    No, he came at you with Pokémon. There's nothing logical about Pokémon players. Yeah, if Pokémon BD/SP couldn't make it. A 10 hour tops game like Dread has no hope.
  9. In all fairness, this is the first Pokémon remake that has gone out of it's way to be so faithful to the original games, for better or worse. It can be a bit of an unexpected departure from modern RPG's that normally make it simple to get to your next goal.
  10. Same reason Surf was there in Red/Blue. To get you to go there. I know it's a mad concept for a Pokémon game these days, but you do get told that Defog is in the Great Marsh by someone in that same town. You gotta chat to people more. As for Strength? You don't have the necessary badge yet.
  11. Be thankful the Town Map shows you your next destination, DS players did not have that luxury. A lot of people getting lost in Sinnoh was the most likely reason Unova ended up being more straightforward as far as the critical path went (Still plenty of side areas though). I think Gen 5 struck a good balance with it's map complexity, pity it went too far in the straightforward direction after the jump to full 3D.
  12. Mario Party Superstars (29th Oct)

    Mario Party 3 ain't all that. The real injustice is that people delude themselves into thinking a late N64 title has any hope of beating a Wii launch title. I'll stick my vote with Mario Party 6, thank you very much, at least that game has a shot of beating 4, which would be justified. 4 is awful.
  13. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Then in that case, Time Format matches tonight at 8pm.
  14. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    I'm good whenever.
  15. Merry Christmas, you N-Erds! This is the thread for showing off the stuff you got this festive morning! As well your tables/floors/beds. Actually, no. Especially your tables/floors/beds. I haven't got my stuff yet. Too early. So I'll be back.
  16. I've got my Metronome team ready to go! I normally don't make the team public, because strategies vary so wildly. But, in this case? What bloody strategy!? So, if you can't be bothered getting a team together, but want to take part in this Russian Roulette of a competition, feel free to use mine. All Max IV, EV trained specifically for these stupid battles. Shoved full of PP Ups as well, to minimise having to resort to Struggle. Clefable is probably going to be the best Pokémon here. Magic Guard is an amazing ability for this. Inteleon is more of a statement then a viable choice, and that statement is "I like chameleons". An OK choice if you wanna go more offensive though.
  17. Dragon Quest X Offline

    Around the time these expansions are done. I expect it to be released in one lump package, right at the end of the Switch lifetime. Just a gut feeling.
  18. Oh my god, this Max Raid battle I just had was brutal! For once, I was the person letting down the team. It was a Ditto. I send in my Inteleon, the other three people were some losers going with boring legendary Pokémon; Zacian, Mewtwo, and Zarude. And then, the ability Imposter activates and it transforms into my Inteleon... My very competitive, very strong, Inteleon. So we've got a Max Raid Ditto with the massive HP pool you'd expect from it, and the horrifying stats of a level 100, max IV, Sp. Atk and Speed EV monster of death. The next 5 turns were just these three legendary Pokémon getting one-shotted, and me getting a painful hit whenever I was targeted. Barely scraped through there. I was literally too good for this fight...
  19. The Best Gaming Music Ever.

    5 minute orchestra performance of some of the Pokémon Diamond/Pearl soundtrack released on the TPC YouTube channel. Get in here, @Julius EDIT: OK, can't seem to embed it. Here's a link.
  20. I kinda fell out of favour with online battling because Dynamax stripped the fun out of it. But this one? I'm gonna get a team ready for this one. Only Pokémon that can learn Metronome, and only Metronome, as in, you'll have to delete the other three moves. Good thing I have over 150 PP Ups! Registration closes on the 6th of January. Battles take place from the 7th to the 9th. More details, including which Pokémon are allowed, here.
  21. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    What is the best silly fight in Smash and why is it menu fight? Always hilarious!
  22. Yes, except Mesprit and Cresselia, seeing as they're roaming Pokémon.
  23. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Online Thread

    Right, it's a theme night tonight. And what better way to celebrate Christmas then finally giving @BowserBasher what he wants. Wild Pokémon Battles! Hold your horses, I know what you're already thinking. Simply put, 8 characters is too slim for my liking, if it's less then Smash 64, then it's not good enough. So apart from the obvious Pokémon characters, here's my reasonings for the other 4 bozos. All Pokémon stages are naturally here, but there's a few others to help diversify things a bit. Basically, stadium type arenas, and Onett, which could pass for a town in a Pokémon game. Format: Stamina, 6 stock, 80 HP FS Meter: On In the spirit of Pokémon, it's stamina matches. I've also doubled the amount of lives everyone has, due to each trainer being allowed to have 6 Pokémon. But to avoid having matches drag on too long, I've almost halved the HP you have. Still, at least falling off with full HP won't be as devastating as usual. The room will be open tonight at 8pm.
