    General Improve a bad ability

    Magnet Pull is in a weird spot where it’s worthless in main game but really good in competitive—Magnezone in particular has used it to great effect against Pokémon like Skarmory in Corviknight—so I really like the second option! Gives it some great utility ingame. Anyways: Flower Veil: In...

    Kalos Written Log Commentary The Totally Fascinating Lore of Kalos... er, Kanto...: Zorua3's analysis-filled Kanto-only Lorelocke of Pokemon X

    Happy (slightly late) April Fools Day! I love this holiday, it's a lot of fun to see what people come up with. I celebrated by... uh... changing my pfp from the one I originally put on for last April Fools day and never took off for some reason. I sure am a great prankster! Anyways, on to the...

    Ruleset The Lorelocke - Version 1.21 is up with art for all the original 151 pokemon! (And rules up to Gen 3).

    @SirKillalot98 I don’t know Ruby’s ruling, but for my run I sacrificed a Pokémon for Potion of Life but didn’t sacrifice the ones for Love and Immunity since they explicitly state only “have” whereas the Life one is “sacrifice.”

    Kalos Written Log Commentary The Totally Fascinating Lore of Kalos... er, Kanto...: Zorua3's analysis-filled Kanto-only Lorelocke of Pokemon X

    @Trollkitten An excellent suggestion... I had completely forgotten about the blessing that is Repels, but I'll have to keep that in mind in the future because Wobbufett is the worst. @RubyClaw Hordes are pretty fun! This won't be the last time they make an appearance, and I'll be able to...

    IRL stuff has kept me away from the forums for a while, but I am now ready to make a return with the next update! @RubyClaw I saw the update! It's a nice quality of life change.

    That sloth (?) looks ready to commit a war crime of some sort.

    Ah, a fellow person of culture! Coney's awesome. His Smash stuff lured me into his variety content which is hysterical, I think he's one of the best small(ish) YouTubers out there. Ashley, iirc, has a little red demon henchman named, well... Red. Good luck on the last two fights! Even on...

    Kalos Written Log Commentary The Totally Fascinating Lore of Kalos... er, Kanto...: Zorua3's analysis-filled Kanto-only Lorelocke of Pokemon X

    @RubyClaw Yeah, I knew before starting this run that X and Y's diversity is famous, but their Kanto diversity specifically is absolutely insane. I think that well over half of Kanto's dex can be caught over the course of the story. And yeah, Plant of Love is a fun rule! It's a less restrictive...

    Video Let's Play (completed) Super Smash Brothers Brawl Subspace Emissary Intense difficulty run

    I love love LOVE The Subspace Emissary, back before Smash 4 and Ultimate I spent a ton of time playing two-player with various siblings as well as trying to 100% it on my own. And those cutscenes... they felt like reveal trailers before those became a thing, and some of them (Subspace gun, first...

    Screenshot Unova Teen Mon A Cap, No Cap

    It's viewable! Other than the images being a bit large (though still readable) I don't think there are any problems with the formatting and such. RE: the run, good start! Meloetta is a pretty interesting mon for a solo run, mostly because of Relic Song should you choose to utilize it. I imagine...

    Sinnoh Written Log General Liberty or Death -- AT's Platinum Wedlocke!

    Okay this concept is glorious. I never would have expected Benjamin Franklin to be so knowledgeable about Sinnoh and Pokemon Training, yet here we are. Nice to see that your third "meeting with a Governor" went well! Scyther is a fantastic catch, especially with Technician. Though, between it...

    Screenshot Hoenn Teen Mon DARK IS NOT EVIL: an Alpha Sapphire Monolocke

    Those stupid Sandslash are the worst. Sand Tomb + Poison Sting + Dig has a lot of potential for nastiness on its own, and then you throw in Sand Veil on top of that and it just becomes painful. Thank goodness they changed Ghost to ignore trapping effects in Gen 6, or that Sableye would be toast.

    Written Story Galar General Proving Ground (A Sword and Shield Nuzlocke)

    This is an interesting rule! It definitely seems pretty mandatory for a Nuzlocke where you can't box Pokemon, since without it I imagine the run would be really hard. Question, I assume you'll make the encounters in the Wild Area random by running into the exclamation point rustling bushes...

    Screenshot Hoenn Teen Mon 7.8 Too Much Water: An Emerald Water Monolocke

    I just realized, in Gen 8 there's a feature where you can send your Pokemon to do random jobs for EXP./EV training + random items and food. So I'm guessing that your Mom is paying some passerby "movers" (read: random trainers) in important items such as Fresh Water and Sausages (actual reward...
