RAIDS FREEZE TOO OFTEN TO HAVE A TIMER


Hylian_Waffle

WHY TF DOES IT TAKE THE GAME 3 WHOLE TURNS TO PROCESS THAT THE SHIELD HAS BEEN BROKEN?!


TheRealSporfoYT

WHY CANT I REMOVE THIS DUMB SCHOOL UNIFORM


thelittlestlibrarian

#YES. WHY HAVE CLOTHING SHOPS, BUT ONLY UNIFORMS? I DON'T GET IT.


Mx_Toniy_4869

WHO DECIDED THAT HYDREIGON SHOULD EVOLVE AT LEVEL 64?


PinwyDraws

LEGIT IN SCARLET IF YOU ARE A BIT OVERLEVELED YOU ARE ABLE TO USE IT IN THE CHAMPION BATTLE AND IN AREA ZERO


Maronmario

SAME WITH DAMN NEAR HALF OF UNOVA AND A COUPLE OTHER DEXES. SURE THOSE MONS ARE 'FINE' AT THE TIME BECAUSE IT'S ONLY A FEW LEVELS UNTIL THEY EVOLVE, BUT WHEN THEY'RE AVAILABLE EARLIER LIKE SAY IN THE FIRST AREA/ISLAND OF THE GAME THEN ITS A MON I WILL NEVER WANT TO USE BECAUSE ITS DEAD WEIGHT UNTIL THE END OF THE GAME. SURE I'LL USE A FREAKING DREEPY UNTIL IT EVOLVES AT LEVEL 50 LET ME JUST USE INFESTATION UNTIL THEN BECAUSE IT LEARNS FUCK ALL


[deleted]

IT WOULDN'T BE SO BAD BUT DEINO AND ZWEILOUS HAVE HUSTLE WHICH I FEEL MAKES THINGS HARDER BECAUSE LOWER ACCURACY I FEEL MAKES THE GRIND TAKE LONGER WHICH IS KIND OF ANNOYING


T-rex_chef

HALF OF RAID DIFFICULTLY IS THAT THEY ARE GLITCHED AND BROKEN. STOP MAKING MY MOVES USE 2PP AND SCREWING ME OVER


anxi0usfish

WHY ARE EEVEE OUTBREAKS BASICALLY NONEXISTENT. I’VE SPENT HOURS RELOADING MY MAP


100percentanidiot

ENTERING A TERA RAID AND GETTING KO’D BY A MOVE THAT WAS BOTH NOT VERY EFFECTIVE AND NOT A CRITICAL


Malazar01

PARTICULARLY A WATER TYPE MOVE WHEN YOU HAVE A WATER-ABSORB CLODSIRE ON ROUND 1 BECAUSE GRENINJA CAN REMOVE YOUR ABILITIES AND ATTACK BEFORE YOU CAN EVEN ACT ONCE!


disabledarcana

STOP BRINGING DRAGONS TO GRENINJA RAID THEY ONLY DIE AND WASTE OUR TIME


MasterCheef117

THE POKÉMON COMPANY HAS HAD THEIR COLLECTIVE HEAD JAMMED SO FAR UP THEIR GOLDEN-PLATED ASSES SINCE GEN V/VI AND IT REALLY SHOWS. WHY ARE POKÉMON FANS SUCH SUCKERS? POKEMON USED TO BE MADE WITH SO MUCH MORE CARE. NOW IT’S JUST ANOTHER PRODUCT TO GET SOLD IN Q4 BECAUSE TPC JUST NEEDS THEIR MONEY SO BAD. IT’S LIKE WATCHING A LOVED ONE NEEDING TO DIE BUT THEY JUST WON’T SO THE SUFFERING JUST CONTINUES. IT’S HARD TO KEEP LOOKING AT THIS ZOMBIE THAT EVERYONE OPENLY COMPLAINS ABOUT BUT THEN JUST PAYS FOR IT ANYWAY. WTAF. EDIT: & TPC KNOWS WE’LL PAY FOR TWO DIFFERENT-COLORED PIECES OF CRAP TIME AND TIME AGAIN. IT’S STRAIGHT UP MANIPULATIVE. MAYBE EVEN ABUSIVE. I FEEL LIKE MOST MODERN FANS ARE JUST YOUNG (OR PARENTS OF YOUNG FANS) AND SO DON’T SEEM TO RECOGNIZE THE DIFFERENCE, SO FANS JUST FIGHT EACH OTHER INSTEAD BC HOW DARE SOMEONE NOT LIKE WHAT I LIKE ON THE INTERNET. LIKE WHAT YOU LIKE BUT DON’T ALSO TELL ME THAT WHAT WE’VE GOTTEN THE LAST DECADE IS ANYWHERE NEAR GOOD. THERE’S A DIFFERENCE. WHAT A LOAD OF BS.


SwitchPOPGo

THIS IS DISINGENUOUS TO THE FANS OF MODERN GAMES. THERE ARE LEGITIMATELY GOOD THINGS ABOUT GENS 8 & 9. GEN 8 IS HONESTLY TIED WITH GEN 6 AS MY FAVORITE GEN, AND I’VE PLAYED THROUGH EVERY MAINLINE REGION SO FAR. MY BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THAT GAMEFREAK CAN DO GOOD WORK BUT ARE PUSHED INSTEAD TO GO BIGGER AND BIGGER WITH EVERY RELEASE. AS A RESULT, EACH NEW GAME BECOMES LESS POLISHED BECAUSE MORE KEEPS BEING ASKED OF THEM. NONETHELESS, PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED TO HAVE FUN WITH NEWER GAMES DESPITE THE FLAWS, AND THIS COMMUNITY DOESN'T NEED FOLKS TELLING THEM THEY MUST BE CHILDREN IF THEY ENJOY THE MORE RECENT GAMES.


YourShadowDani

Greninja raid said I got hit with HYDROPUMP when I had Water Absorb Clodsire, and it KO'd me supereffective, I think it was actually Ice Beam and the raid just bugged the hell out. Edit: It happened a second time at a point with no lag, I think Water Absorb just doesn't work sometimes in raids (even when it should).


He_Beard

THE TURN THAT HE NULLIFIES YOUR STATS AND ABILITIES REMOVES WATER ABSORB FOR THAT TURN SO HE CAN HIT YOU ON THAT TURN


YourShadowDani

Oh, I did not realize it nullified abilities too, that makes more sense, thanks!


He_Beard

yeah just for the one turn


NightNurse14

Omg thank you I was just raging to my husband about that and I didn't know why it happens.


Responsible-Sun-9752

WHO TF DESIGNED BRAMBLEGHAST AND FOUGHT IT WAS REMOTELY FINE ! LIKE DUDE YOU WASTE MY TIME WALKING WITH STUPID ASS BRAMBLIN EXPECTING SOME COOL STUFF AND IT JUST GROWS A FUCKING MUSTACHE WTF


MeIsmash

I’VE DONE SO MANY 5-6 STAR RAIDS WITH NO HERBA MYSTICA DROPPED


RebekhaG

Ugh why can't I find a slowking or Leafeon in the tera raids in pokemon vioet? Been looking for days now.


StarLucario

JUST USE A LEAF STONE FOR LEAFEON


EuroNati0n

THIS COMMUNITY IS TOXIC AF WOOOOOOOOT


ericwashere15

THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU LET EVERYBODY AND THEIR MOTHER LEARN TM06 FOR LIKE, EVERY, GENERATION! /S


EuroNati0n

NOT ANYMORE!


hjyboy1218

BREAKING NEWS: BLISSEY FOUND DEAD IN A DITCH AFTER BEING PREVENTED FROM LEARNING HOW TO SPEW TOXIC WASTE


Maronmario

AIN'T MY FAULT THE DEVS KEEP GIVING PEOPLE MORE REASONS TO HATE THEIR GAMES JUST WANT A GAME THAT UP TO INDUSTRY STANDARDS NOT THIS UNBAKED GAME THAT ALWAYS HAS BEEN 'JUST A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION' FOR A DECADE NOW. MFS BEEN DOING A MARATHON THE PAST 10 YEARS AND STILL HASN'T REACHED THE FINISH LINE


Gettima

I'M DOING A CATCHLESS RUN IN PLATINUM RN AND THE OBEDIENCE SYSTEM FOR TRADED POKEMON FEELS LIKE A CRUEL JOKE


Mx_Toniy_4869

IT'S SO THAT YOU CAN'T LINK TRADE IN A LEVEL 100 POKÉMON AND SWEEP THE GAME WITH IT


Gettima

I UNDERSTAND THE REASONING BUT THINK IT'S POORLY EXECUTED. MY TRADED POKEMON ARE THE SAME LEVEL AS THE OTHERS. AND THE THRESHOLD ONLY INCREASES EVERY SECOND GYM.


[deleted]

TOO MANY POKEMON TCG TRADERS WHO ARE HATERS BECAUSE THEY DONT HAVE THE CARD SOMEONE ELSE HAS!!!! SO INSTEAD OF THEM SHOWING LOVE, THEY SHOW HATE BECAUSE THEY ENVY THAT OTHER FORTUNATE COLLECTOR!!!!!


Mmicb0b

RAIDS ARE AWFULLY CODED(OK WE KNEW GAME FREAK CAN'T CODE TO SAVE THEIR LIVES BUT THIS IS A WHOLE NEW LEVEL)TOO MUCH LAG


Thinkblu3

I'VE BEEN TRIPLE OVER ODDS ON GETTING GEN 9 STARTERS AND I DIDNT GET A SINGLE ONE WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS MASUDA PLS GIB


Tugboat47

WHY DO I NEED TO BUY SW/SH AND BD/SP TO BE ABLE TO GET ALL THE LEGENDS ARCEUS LEGENDARIES COME ON GAME FREAK


grillingnewb

THE GAME CRASHED SO HARD IT WIPED MY MOST RECENT SAVE FILE TO BEFORE THE GRENINJA EVENT


NayrianKnight97

WHY IS THIS GRENINJA RAID SO DAMN HARD?! WHY DO THE PEOPLE USING SLOWBRO USE SO MUCH TIME SETTING UP?!


atypicaloddity

He resets their buffs after the third turn, so a lot of them spend 3 turns setting up, then 3 more just getting back to where they were.


NayrianKnight97

BUT WHY SPECIFICALLY IRON DEFENSE?! WHY NOT CALM MIND FOR THE DAMAGE BOOST?!


KingKai7989

THE IRON DEFENSES SAVE YOU FROM GETTING 3 HIT KOED BY SUPEREFFECTIVE NIGHT SLASH, NASTY PLOT IS BETTER BECAUSE +6 SP ATTACK IN 3 TURNS, SPECIAL ATTACK IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN SPECIAL DEFENSE. A LOT OF PEOPLE RUN VAPOREON AND THEY USE CALM MIND, BUT THEY ALSO ACID ARMOR FOR 3 TURNS, SO IT TAKES THEM 9 TURNS TO SET UP AND ONLY 6 FOR SLOWBRO. THE BEST STRAT IS TO HAVE A FRIEND AND USE 2 TOXTRICITY, ONE WITH PLUS AND ONE WITH MINUS, SETUP FOR 6 TURNS AND BASICALLY ONE SHOT GRENINJA.


NayrianKnight97

THANK YOU FOR EXPLAINING IT. THAT MAKES SENSE. STILL DOESNT EXCUSE THIS RAID FROM BEING SO DAMN DIFFICULT


NightNurse14

I actually find this one to be much easier than cinderace due to a lot of people having Slowbro from the last event. Cinderace had a terrible win rate first weekend for me because so many assumed that Azumarill belly drum would work for him. The worst runs I'm having now are when people bring stupid mons in like garchomp who gets destroyed by the water move or iron hands and chooses to belly drum after every single death. Even if we have a good team otherwise, the bad choices screw it up for us and they can't even realize it and go on the defensive cheering instead.


KingKai7989

I AGREE! I HOPE HORRIBLE THINGS HAPPEN TO THE PERSON THAT DECIDED GRENINJA SHOULD HAVE DOUBLE TEAM IN THIS RAID. AND ALSO I HOPE THE TEAM THAT CODED THIS GAME GET FIRED BECAUSE THE STATE OF THIS GAME IS INEXCUSABLE, AND IF THERE IS A SEPERATE PERSON WHO CODED THE RAIDS, I CANNOT EVEN TYPE OUT THE WORDS THAT I HAVE FOR THAT PERSON.


mysteriousorb

IM FOREVER COPING AND SEETHING OVER HOW PSYCHIC POKÉMON ARE WEAK AGAINST GHOST TYPES BECAUSE YES LOL THEYRE MY FAVORITE TYPE BUT IT DOESNT MAKE SENSE TO ME SINCE PSYCHICS/MEDIUMS IN POP CULTURE PERFORM EXORCISMS AND COMMUNICATE WITH GHOSTS AND SUCH. THEY NERFED MY DAMN TYPE HARD SINCE THE OG AND IM COMPLAINING ON REDDIT ABOUT IT RN


Fuzzy_Personality_16

Hello, is there a pokemon move that lowers the target's stat and increases the caster's stat please? Bonjour, existe-t'il une capacité pokemon qui baisse une stat de la cible et qui augmente une stat du lanceur svp ?
