Fashion Focus – Team Magma and Team Aqua

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

Hello and welcome to Fashion Analysis, where I discuss what’s hot in fashion! For today I’ll be talking about the villainous teams from the Hoenn region, Team Magma and Team Aqua. Both teams not only went through different outfits, but staff changes too! Makes things more exciting, don’t you think?


Forum Events & Achievement System!

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Yes, a short advertisement!

The BBS Forums are currently running a posting blitz, coupled with a number of events to be held over the next week, such as a game of Mafia (kill or be killed), writing prompts, and wifi battling. Also a thread just for CAPSLOCK AND GIFS. Why not register and join in?

In addition, we’ve also launched a Achievement Hunter system. The link gives more details, but the gist is that you can get achievements that can be displayed in your profile and postbit, coupled with points.

How do you get achievements? By completing tasks. They range from doing stuff on the forums (like posting your works, or just posting in general), on Wynaut? (like helping edit or write articles via the forum), or for stuff you do in Pokemon (like beating the games [main and spinoff!], or watching the anime, or sharing a new piece of Pokemon merch you got). You can even suggest new achievements for the system – it can always get bigger! But basically – talk about stuff you did in the games or with other canon, and/or contribute stuff on the forums, and get rewards.

The points? Well, that’s up to you on how to use them. The shop system the forum has allows you to buy stuff like profile customisations, or your own ‘shop’ that you can run and offer services like Pokemon trades or an art shop for more points! Rumor has it a forum RPG/Anime-Style Battling section might go up soon too, which’d also use these points. And points are on top of a shiny badge once the system is fully implemented too.

So join in! We don’t bite. Much.

Wyatt may bite, though.

We’ll soon resume with more articles!

Cheating? In my VGC?

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

Pokémon has always been one of those games where players have access to cheat codes and devices, going all the way back to the first two generations. The Game Shark and Action Replay were staples and made you the cool kid of any school playground. After all, what kid wasn’t amused by the idea of a Sunkern with 999 stats and moves like Flamethrower? 

But there’s the other side of it. People don’t exactly like it when you beat them up with hacked Pokémon, and that can be a fair enough viewpoint. Throw in a recent event in this year’s Pokémon VGCs (Video Game Competition) in America, and you get an interesting topic of discussion. Here we look at both sides of the debate on how ‘right’ it may be to use the newest of the external devices – the Power Save – to help you prepare for a Pokémon competition, and let you weigh up both sides of the debate. Warning – a few battling terms exist in this article.


Pokémon from outside your console! [Part One]

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

Most of us have played more than one Pokémon game. After a game is finished, chances are that the next one will be loaded into your console. But how would you define ‘finishing’ a Pokémon game? Is it simply beating the Pokémon League? Or is it beating the Pokémon League and finishing the post-game events? To go even further, it might even be completing the entire Pokédex. An even larger extreme is to have all the Pokémon in the Pokédex at Lv 100, regardless of whether they’ve evolved or not.

But how do we get the access to all these Pokémon? Even after weeks of hard work, you’d find that certain Pokémon can only be evolved by trading and certain Pokémon need to be transferred from the other version of the game. Some are even distributed solely in Nintendo events. The general consensus is that if you want to beat the game, you’re going to need help. And that’s what we’re following in this article. We’ll also examine how various features of the Pokémon games took advantage of the ability to link between each other, across all the generations.

The owner wanted to attach an Everstone before trading Haunter over, but his friend didn’t like the idea for some reason.
