Taka Greninja was getting quite OP due to the protean ability like Menos said, because it changes Greninja's type to the move it uses which in combination with Greninja's quite good stats and wide as hell movepool (especially since the reintroduction of move tutors in G6 with OR/AS) made him extremely unpredictable and it gave all his moves a same type 50% bonus damage. Greninja got placed in the same tier as mega Kanghaskahn who became broken due to attacking twice with each move, speed boost Blaziken and some other megas and legendaries.
Having that said in the G6 games since i always bred for as strong as possible pokemons i should have a few hidden ability starters and other pokemons lying around as well as some excellently bred pokemons (almost have a few around with 4 IVs and the optimal ability and nature) which i always make a few extra by accident. If any of you want
Wasn't much of a breeder guy. Did EV training for a bit. I was more of a collector guy. It take me a quite a bit to get used to the new Pokemon. Some of them like that slug Pokemon are misleading for types. I thought it was a poison type. Turns out it was a dragon type.
What happened to Pokemon these days?
I forgot to register one of my siblings' game. Turns out they were done with Alpha Sapphire a long time when I bought it as a gift for them. I used to spend hours on Platinum. I guess the new games have less retention and replay value with my siblings. They don't go back to Black and White and others.
Taka I also did collecting but after you catch every single catchable in the game nothing but breeding remains, although breeding in itself was a means and not an end since i did it to get very strong pokemons for the battle frontiers and battle maisons. We managed to clear every super challenge in those on omega ruby. But to that end i also ended up collecting and breeding good pokemons from the other games, like hidden ability bulbasaur and my favorite which i still have to do Drifblim (but decent drifloon are hard to get) and even pokemons like Gengar.
As for the pokemon designs of the last generations, don't begin about it. They don't seem to have a lot of new ideas anymore, given that especially generation 5 was horrible with icecream, garbage, chandelier and just plain duck and a swan pokemon (of which the duck has the most uninspired name ever). It seems they're shifting to making pokemon based on objects now.
I still have to register mine as well, little brother doesn't really bother too much anyways and is mainly breeding and doing GTS (and trading away a lot of the breeding junk via wonder trade). Wondering if i should register Y or OR, since we did most on OR but my little brother is still using that one.

HungryWorld: I'm interested in your offer since I have more perfect Bunearies than I ever need in my life right now. I also agree that Gen 5 wasn't that strong on the design department, but they ended up with a lot of useful pokemon. This gen had a lot of useful pokemon too, but the dex was the smallest out of the other Gens most likely because Gamefreak wanted to change the metagame for the better with mega evolutions (which ended up working).
Taka: I also have collected for the pokedex, but I mainly battle or breed pokemon.
Master Menos Well we have a perfect Lopunny as well, little brother made that one for the Mega Lopunny. Normally just interested in a pokemon we don't have yet or one we don't have a good parent or so of yet. I really just bred for pokemons i liked and were also good in competitive use. And for the Megas, heck i think we have about every mega there is possible safe for Garchomp (getting Garchompite is a pain in the ass). So i'm not really in the need of Bunearies but we can work something out XD. Think there was a few AS exclusive pokemons that we don't have on the dex yet i think (we have over 500 on the dex seen and at least a couple of hundred caught). Also always am looking for some good leftover parents from pokemon i'd like to breed but haven't bred yet. As for battling, i think we could try that once as well. I think you can expect a Hoopa or some other really strong pokemon though XD
And i agree on the metagame changing a lot since G5. Pokemon like Aegislash and some other quite unbalanced ones came out. Also the introduction of Shell Smash made me love Cloyster. Cloyster is love, Cloyster is life.
Taka: Acnologia: HungryWorld: This month's fan game is Pokemon Reborn. I added the description to the OP. It's actually really good. Unlike Insurgence, you will NOT choose to have a lighter story there as the arrival to Reborn City sets the tone for you at the start.
Master Menos I never really did pokemon fangames :S. The only thing close to it i did is CAP on Showdown. I cannot stand using imaginary pokemon too much since i will automatically memorize them and keep them in mind when planning and doing mind games.
Master Menos I did say it once before in this thread. Yeah i have a username on there. It's ChainsawPinsir (just imagine the badassery of Pinsir with chainsaws instead of those what do you call them horns).
I ended up playing with a lot of them (ROM Hack and RPG Maker types) because of trying Reborn out right before Gen 6 got announced. I do like the official games a lot more, but some of them are fun just like the official ones.
EDIT: Taka: I almost forgot! On that game, I apparently found someone with the same name as you in Team Meteor. It was too good not to share. XD
That's cool! I think I did played a fan game but it wasn't like the ones (romcoms?) you guys mentioned. It's called Pokemon Crater. It was a website game that was opened for a period of time and closed down since the creator had commitment that took a lot of his free time.
Entertainment news source Variety reported on Thursday that software development company Niantic (Ingress) has raised US$20 million from The Pokémon Company, Nintendo, and Google to develop its Pokémon GO augmented reality smartphone app. Variety added that the three investors will give Niantic another US$10 million upon meeting unspecified performance goals.
Pokémon GO will be available in 2016 for Android phones and iPhones. 2016 marks the 20th anniversary of the original Pokémon games.
For Halloween promo, Pokkén Tournament, is doing a special stage and assist pokemon for the holiday:
The game is also celebrating Halloween through November 3rd with a haunted mansion stage, witch and magician outfits, and support Pokémon Mismagius with Ominous Wind, giving your pokemon increased attack power and Ninetales with a Will-O-Wisp flame effect.
Taka: As for anime business, I'll work on the Spring 2020 anime stuff this weekend. I will finish up the Winter 2020 banners. My apologies. I thought I will out of work due to the virus outbreak. I'm glad I'm still working at the pharmacy

Dream: Looks like California and New York are now enforcing all non-essential workers to stay home, except for necessary needs and all public gatherings are banned, at least in New York. New York's are in effect Sunday.
Mar 20, 2020 16:16:17 GMT
Dream: Far as essential workers go, the following are in the category to my knowledge: retail, pharmacies, warehouses, food suppliers, medical offices, transport, emergency personnel, banks, media. May be some differences in what is considered essential...
Mar 20, 2020 17:27:04 GMT
Dream: ...dependent on state or localities. But basically, anything that is a major need for everyday living is considered essential.

Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.
Mar 24, 2020 13:38:28 GMT
Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.
Mar 29, 2020 15:13:27 GMT
El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
