He he, Guyperfect righting the wrongs.

I've got a good laugh from that.

Check the photo again; I included the cartridge in the image. The label is pretty clearly intact, despite the seller saying it wasn't.

The ultimate goal of my migration project is to create some kind of hardware device that will allow transfers between Game Boy and Game Boy Advance cartridges for the purpose of linking generations 2 and 3. The hardware side of things is still a ways off, since I have minimal experience with electronics, but the software side, boy howdy, I can take care of that for sure!

So hey, art for a change! I made little 3DS-style app icons for each of the Gen 2 and Gen 3 games, which will wind up being used in my project (mouseover for the name of the game it's supposed to go with):



Obviously, the emblems used in the Gold and Silver icons came from HeartGold and SoulSilver.
The one used on the Crystal icon is genuine, but it was only distributed on the Japanese logo art.
The Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald images use recreations of the in-game Red Orb, Blue Orb and Jade Orb icons.
FireRed and LeafGreen's emblems are genuine as well, and again only found on the Japanese logo art.

Turns out the original Red, Green and Blue titles had those little icons as well, though Yellow doesn't have one. In a pinch, I'd probably use a stylized Pikachu tail to get the point across, but I don't like making new iconography for other people's properties. I kinda lucked out with the ones I used!

Stats and IVs and OT ID and other random bits notwithstanding, I'm fairly certain no one else has a Pokémon quite like this one:



Between Focus Punch, Drain Punch and the Moon Ball, I find it not unfeasible that no other Pokémon player has ever had Breloom like this. It's really starting to come to light just how awesome it is to have games representing every facet of the series, because I get to do fun stuff like this.

So what do you think, am I underestimating the zeal of the global Pokémon player base? Could there be someone out there with a Breloom not only with these moves, but in every type of Poké Ball?

If by that you mean, "Am I the only person who's ever thought of breeding a Pokemon in a Kurt ball [and - optionally - with egg moves]?" then no:



Shiny Love ball Fire Fang female Mawile (I got a male but continued to Masuda for a female), and a shiny Moon ball male Gengar.

The general rule is: if you ever think "Am I the only one that _______", then no, you pretty much never are. I wouldn't be surprised if someone RNG'd, say, a shiny flawless Magnemite in HG/SS and caught it in a Kurt ball, then gave it tutor moves from B2/W2 before transferring it to X/Y, just to have a competitively-viable shiny genderless Pokemon in a Kurt ball. Hell, I wanted a shiny legendary but couldn't get a flawless one, so I settled for a non-shiny 5IV Fast ball Latias with Defog.

Under ordinary circumstances yes, but this particular combination was not possible prior to X and Y. As Focus Punch is only an egg move for Shroomish (chain bred from Snubbull, Granbull), getting a Breloom with it in a Moon Ball (HeartGold, SoulSilver) requires Gen 6 breeding (X, Y ). In and of itself that's probably been done, but then I also went to the trouble of getting Drain Punch (Black 2, White 2) on the same Breloom as Focus Punch, in a Moon Ball.

The only possible way to do that is to teach Scraggy or Shroomish (or evolutions) Drain Punch via Move Tutor in Black 2/White 2. I know we're looking at some cosmically-large data points here, but I still find feasible the notion that no one else has ever done this one before.

Point of interest is that Focus Punch and Drain Punch are both still egg moves on Shroomish, despite it being impossible to breed Drain Punch onto one using the Gen 6 available move set.

The sticker album is complete! But... the fanfare was minimal:



Now, next time a Pokémon game comes out, I can just offload my bank's contents to the PC boxes and fill out the Pokédex that way. Thinking ahead for the win!

So yeah, click 'em for the big versions:






I used my entire collection of games going back to the Game Boy Advance in order to get this all fleshed out. If anyone needs a particular hard-to-get Pokémon (I'm looking at you, Glameow), just holler.

Welcome to the Guy Perfect thread, apparently.

I'm willing to trade away this little gem:



It's an event exclusive, Jirachi, though of all the event exclusives I figure more people have this one than any other except maybe Celebi. Either way, it's got a Lucky Egg, has the Pokérus, and knows Iron Head and Trick, two moves it won't learn leveling up.

What I'd like in return for any trade is one of the following, which are all event-exclusives:

Deoxys
Manaphy
Darkrai
Shaymin
Arceus
Victini
Meloetta
Genesect
Gabu

Star Mario
Placeholder Ikachan until :effort: is found

Okay, I've been neglecting mentioning these two things for a while now:

-In my X save file I didn't even log 13 hours before I somehow contracted Pokerus. So I managed to get Pokerus in both X and Black, while only running across one shiny Audino.

-I managed to obtain a second Cobalion via GTS. With my Jynx. Named Blowupdoll. Somebody actually wanted a Jynx in return for a Cobalion. I can't even

Eesh, I thought maybe the game froze a la Lumiose City on launch day when I entered that Pokémon Center, but it was just wishing me a happy birthday.

"Happy birthday, the game isn't frozen!"

I think the chance of getting pokerus has been raised in X/Y,
cause like I got it in my third wild pokemon battle somehow

also happy birthday guy

hey guys is this plausible?

ORAS isn't taking place in hoenn

"The new titles promise to take players through a dramatic story within a spectacular new world." - press release "Explore a dramatic new world!" - reveal video



also some people are theorizing about the cover pokes being mega forms of Groudon and Kyogre, and Mega Stones weren't around back then in hoenn (unless maybe the Orbs are actually Mega Stones... Mega Rayquaza, anyone?)

just my thoughts. Gen 3 was my least favourite from an aesthetics point of view, so I'd kinda be happy if these weren't in hoenn.

and hurr durr water trumpets

(and to clarify: i did still like the games, just not as much as the others.)

I honestly thought they would not remake Ruby and Sapphire. The way I always saw it, the only reason they redid the Gen 1 and 2 games was to incorporate compatibility with the new EV system, since Gen 2 can't migrate to Gen 3.

'Sides, it totally would be worth the dough to put up Ruby and Sapphire on 3DS Virtual Console and have it compatible with Poké Transporter.

EDIT:
Uh oh, if they're going to do this right, we're going to see a return of contests. |-:

Ruby and Sapphire are rather dated as well, since they don't have the physical/special move split.

Also, the red and blue gems are now mega stones. :>

I had assumed, after Black 2 and White 2, these were going to be remakes in a "modern" Hoenn, and I'll be kinda disappointed if it's just a full on remake. It SORT of makes sense(With the lack of multiplayer support on the VC and the fewer devices that support GBA, it can be hard though not impossible to get from the GBA gens) but a remake seems a bit unneeded outside of fandom requests or going into a thoughtless cycle "just because we did two other remakes"

Someguy: The target demographic for pokemon is mostly kids. Hench, as soon as a game gets old enough it's going to get remaked, simply due there being a new generation that never experienced those games. The fact that remakes are a sure seller among certain fans (since they know what the game will be like.) may also help.

could be like a combo of going to kanto from johto
and firered/leafgreen's sevii islands


also emerald had like the best endgame
if these have the original contests and a complete battle frontier

it will totally be my number one pokemon game
