    Honestly, I'd enjoy a really good storyline (and to a lesser extent, post-game content). I absolutely loved BW's plot. I guess a second thing would be to not have so many shitty mons aesthetically.

    I would hope nurse joy is wearing a hula skirt.

    Also a good story i guess but who really cares about that, you'll forget all about the story when you're bitching about hax. But, I would love to see how the Gyms will look. I always loved the cute little puzzles you had to do to get to the Leader.

    7.8/10 too much land

    I hope the villains are unique and interesting. Part of what I like about RSE is the environmentalist themes (not just in the villains, but with random NPC interaction) so I'd like so see that surface again. Maybe they can make global warming a major plot point (thus giving evangelicals another reason to believe Pokémon is the antichrist).

    The biggest disappointment I had with XY, ignoring the competitive side of things, was the story. It all seemed very rushed in between Gyms 7 and 8, just to make sure there was a reason for the boxart legendary mon to exist and be caught.

    If they manage to actually give us a decent story throughout Alola that is well executed, as well as just keeping the core mechanics of Pokémon, Gen 7 has a chance of being pretty damn good. Build upon Gen 6, but fix the issues people have with it. Problem solved.

    As for the region itself, I just hope it's handled in a classy way. Sure, you need a few obvious references to the location it's based on, but if all the girls are wearing a hula skirt and a coconut bra, or all the male characters are surfers, or they utterly butcher and misinterpret a bit of culture so hard it causes outrage, you're gonna have a bad time.

    I'm hopeful that they don't continue to add things that degrade the competitive aspect of the game. I hope that they elaborate on some of the unfinished things from gen 6, or I at least hope that they won't leave even more unfinished. It seems odd to me that Diantha and Zygarde never got much of a back story. I would like to see the Pokedex features from ORAS return. I would not like to see Red Orb or Blue Orb anywhere. I would like to see more new Pokemon and less megas. I hope the game is not too rushed because it seems like it may be. Really, I think if they just take the good things from gen 6 and build on those, it should be alright.

    I set my alarm for 6:30am, got up and made my mother coffee & breakfast in bed. Got her a card and flowers, then took her out to eat at her favorite restaurant later that evening. Then got her a necklace. She said it was the best Mothers Day she's ever had so I was pretty happy to hear that.

    Hope everyone else had a great Mothers Day too! *insert huge ass smiley face here*

    Before I answer, time for yet another rant about how America is dumb as fuck.

    So America is, I think, the only country that celebrates Mother's Day on the 2nd Sunday of May. I think that this is rather fucking stupid. Why do I think that?

    Well, America has a tendancy to pretend that Christianity runs deep to the core of the USA (despite it literally being in law that the state will always be seperate from religion), and thus has a tendancy to try and follow all Christian things as much as they can.

    So why the fuck do they not celebrate Mother's Day on Mothering Sunday, a day that is the 4th Sunday of Lent, and is thus a notable date in the Christian calender? Idiots.

    That being said, as someone that thinks we need to fully seperate church from state here in the UK, perhaps we should stop observing Mother's Day also, especially considering that it is just another stupidly commercialised holiday that has lost its true meaning over time.


    Anyway, to answer the question, I called my mum up (on Mothering Sunday, which was March 6th) and spoke to her for about 40 minutes. That's it.

    Well, nothing. I'm going to refer to Mothering Sunday as well. I went home for the weekend and went out for a meal with my mum on the Saturday to celebrate Mother's Day. On the Sunday itself, nothing actually happened because my mum had to get up early for work and I had to go back to Uni because I had classes on Monday. Rip.

    Derp, in DR we celebrate it in the last Sunday of May so...still nothing. Though I'm planning on visiting her since I'm p sure I'll be done with my semester by then. She hasn't seen me in months so spending some time with her is probably the gift she wants the most.

    My family got together for lunch at Grandma's house.

    Why does Mother's Day necessarily have to be about Christians? Why can't it just be a day to celebrate mothers? Unless you are looking at it from a religious perspective, the day that it is recognized is really irrelevant.

    I know that there have been several America themed questions (probably too many recently), but could you try ranting less?
    That's really all that was needed for this question. Also, if you don't like the topic of a question, not responding would be a lot better than just ranting about it.

    I rant about the topic in quite a lot of questions to give my thoughts on the topic of the question, as well as to potentially start discussion. I wasn't ranting about how the question was shit or anything like that. I was ranting about the holiday itself. Scroll back to questions about Christmas and Valentine's Day where I did the exact same thing.

    There has been a few too many America themed questions, I agree, but considering the nationality of Joeypals, I understand why. Regardless, this was a non-factor in my rant, as my rant was not about the question, but about the holiday specified in the question. I would request you re-read my post with that in mind.

    I appreciate you trying to keep the thread going, and trying to call me out for appearing to complain about it. I hope this post helps to clear up any issues you have with my posts.

    EDIT: in fact, I'm gonna extend my rant

    WHY THE FUCK DO SO MANY COUNTRIES ACROSS THE WORLD ALL CELEBRATE SOMETHING AKIN TO MOTHER'S DAY, AND WHY ARE SO MANY OF THEM ON DIFFERENT DAYS TO THE OTHERS? OMFL

    To be completely honest here, I don't hate mothers day and i don't like it either. You should appreciate your mother for as long as you live, she is the one who brought you into this world. ( i love my mom and i had to say it cos if not she may haunt me rip ) I honestly appreciate my mother and what she has done for me and I'd never let her forget that, on mothers day i just kinda do a bit extra since it's a holiday and moms love it so.

    When it comes to why it's on different days in other countries, maybe every country thinks their mothers are better so they are like: "Oh hey our mothers day is on this day", "OH YEAH? OURS IS THIS DAY BEAT THAT SHIT".

    Actually from the society I belong to, mothers day is completely unnecessary.
    That's to say we don't need an excuse to remember our mother. Parents are almost always held in high regard, and the parents themselves always mean well and always shows up. It's a relationship that seems to work on its own, and nobody needs any motivation or anything.

    Is that even a question? Lemme see, I pretty much did nothing worth mentioning, checked PO Forums, checked FB and saw all my retarded friends wish their mums who haven't even signed up on FB. Then before going to sleep, I go sit with Mum in the living room and read books along with her. That is like my daily Sunday routine. I don't need Mother's day to share my feelings of love with Mum! :v

    Well i had like 2 mother's days. Since hispanics celebrate mother's day on Tuesday (It was May 10th) we celebrated both on Sunday and Tuesday. I gave my mom a bouquet of roses. We also called my aunt, who was heading to Mexico on Sunday to see my grandma. When she got to mexico she surprised my grandma with a mariachi band. Then i called my other grandma (father's side) who lives in Los Angeles. Let's just say, i miss them both.

    I guess I'll start with Popplio since it's the one I'll be choosing.

    Popplio I can see maybe something kinda close to Samurott but still looks kinda like a circus seal. Maybe it'll have rings on it's arms or something. I could see some kind of Ring Leader theme going on. Might fit better to it being Water/Fairy like i hope it will be.

    Litten, I honestly can't help but think it'll look sorta like Liepard. I literally have no idea as to what kind of design it could have besides possibly flaming paws or some shit. Maybe more of a ninja look. Hoping it gets poison type to fit that role.

    Rowlet will end up looking like a bigger owl but with a necklace of leaves. Maybe look like one of those cocky owls. I just have no idea on Rowlet to be completely honest.

    Tbh, i see Popplio looking like this too. http://img05.deviantart.net/a9c8/i/...tion_speculation_by_monsterpocket-da28blz.png

    Sorry, picture was huge as fuck.

    Designs are going to vary so no point in talking about those. However, the final typings are more interesting.

    In the HTML of the Japanese site here, there are two type banners that are unused. There are Ground and Fighting.

    So we possibly might end up with Fire / Fighting Litten and Water / Ground Popplio (LOL)

    Or we possibly might end up with Fire / Ground Litten and Water / Fighting Popplio, which would mean that every type in starters would have been paired with the Fighting type.

    There is no happy ending if either are true,,,

    No.
    NO
    NOOOO.

    You don't joke about these things.
    Seriously, why are we assuming such out of whack typing.

    I think this time, we won't be getting secondary type triangle. What I'm trying to say is it will be like gen 1, where the secondary types(Flying, poison, No type) aren't related to each other.

    I think Litten will be a badass Fire/Dark type. The color themes suggest so, it looks kinda moody. I'm also 99% sure it will have high Special Attack and Speed, and low bulk on either side or both. The nature itself has high variety of cats, and they'll pick one for Litten.
    It'll probably be a direct upgrade to Houndoom which is good cause Cats are master race and should one up the doges.

    Rowlet will be the fat one. Almost certainly keeps the grass/flying type. It'll continue being owl. It's gonna be interesting because we haven't seen this typing defensive outside of Jumpluff. And unlike jumpluff, this one will have roost.

    Poppilo will keep the pure water typing I think. It'll look like one of Otter/Sea Lion/Dolphin/Walrus. It will get a larger move pool than it's counterparts and have decent to high attack I think. No idea about rest of the stat spread.

    Rowlet will end up NU.
    Popplio will end up NU.
    Litten will end up slightly below Houndoom... so probably NU. (totally assuming dark/fire here)

    As much as I'd like the 3 starters to actually be able to compete in UU or OU, but they aren't looking like that material.

    Like Oak said they'll most likely be left in NU.

    Seals and Owls don't belong in OU anyways ;(

    I'd like to see Popplio be at least UU. But i can't really say anything about it until i have really played the game. Litten might end up NU with Rowlet maybe being UU with Popplio.

    Still can't say all that much. I hope i'm not dissapointed by the final evos.

    Unless Rowlet's final evo gets a godlike stat spread, good moves, Defog and a damn good ability, it just won't make it anywhere past NU. Grass / Flying is such as shit type lol

    Yeah if it's defensive, NU

    If it's offensive with stabs like Acro/Brave Bird, Wood Hammer, and moves like Superpower or EQ it'll go far.

    More than half the Water starters are consistently in the UU range so Popplio's prob going to slot there.

    Litten's rly depends on its role but yeah could be anywhere in OU / UU / LU. Fires are also p solid tiering wise

    I wanted to change what I had said since I decided not to put too much logic into it, I could see Rowlet staying Grass/Flying, Litten being Fire/Fighting and Popplio being Water/Steel.

    Based on Rowlets pokedex description it says it can unleash kicks ( inb4 this little shit turns Fighting/Flying. ) Plus it's pretty cool that it gets new grass move called 'Leafage' which is a move Rowlet uses by striking it's opponent with leaves. Even though it's just a shit move but still.

    Rowlet: Neckless owl is just pure hype. If it becomes an fully fledged offensive mon with decent offense and movepools and aerialate then Imma 100% scream like a gurl! Grass/Flying all the way.
    Litten: Like Razzle said before me, it could be poison type by the end. But I am pretty sure it gets to be dark type with badass offenses and maybe prankster for HA.

    Question for May 13th, 2016: What are your predictions for the final evolutions of Rowlet, Litten, and Popplio?
    • I think Litten might end up like a chimaera. Idk why, but otherwise it is going to be another generic cat mon. We already have too many of these gamefreak! A chimaera might suit the fire/poison typing, too.
    • Rowlet, it could be an owl-like gryphon (I think they are called tytogryphs, I am not sure). That would make it a bit more bulky ad might make it usable, idk. Either that or they are going to play around with tropical leaves as plumage.
    • Popplio, hard to say, given the circus concept with it. We already have buizel and floatzel, we already have walrein, we already have milotic if it was gonna elongate and be some weird sea snake thing, we have samurott.. I honestly don't know what GF are thinking. The only mention in mythology in regards to seals are selkies but, y'know, celtic folklore + Hawaii setting? Seems unlikely.

    Something like Colosseum and XD.

    A 3D Pokemon RPG, preferably not based on Doubles though, with its own unique story that isn't just "BEAT THE GYMS, ALSO EVIL TEAM NEEDS STOPPING". It should also have Stadium-like battling, and potentially mini-games like in Stadium too.

    I also wanna see a Pokemon game with a lot more story to it. I wanna be given choices to things like letting my Butterfree go ( ouch ) and things like that. I don't want to just go to a gym, beat it, beat a bad guy, rinse/repeat.

    I really care about the story in a lot of the games I play. Pokemon isn't the #1 on my list but I enjoy the story with some of the games ( not xy ew wtf ).

    Also why are we not seeing a game where i can ride a Lugia in 3D and fighting the legendary bird trio???

    Reminds me of how disconnected I was from the story in BW1, I literally paid 0 attention to it and just blasted through probably the easiest gym leaders I've ever encountered.

    By the time I completed it, I didn't even realize there was a story in BW1. l0l

    It'd be nice to have an actual story :)

    It would be interesting to see another stadium or colosseum type game that could interact with the handheld games. I would like to think that another Pokemon Snap could be neat, but I think it was such a niche game to start with that it would probably need to bring a lot more to the table than the original did apart from the new Pokemon. I don't really care much about the console version having a story (unless it is like colosseum) because I would rather Sun/Moon provide that.

    >an actual story

    I think Black and White probably had the best story out of all of the main series games. Maybe you should actually pay attention. lol

    Shows how poorly the story was actually executed :)

    Nothing made you care to pay attention to the story either way.

    Meanwhile Gen3/Emerald had the best story and lore to it imo
