What's up everyone I'm sure you guys have been waiting for a pokemon mmo for some time now but guess what one has existed for that last 3 years and you probably havent even heard of it.
Having played this game since 2012 I can say forsure that it has come a long way. It's sort a mishmash of generation 3-6 mechanics and some interesting breeding mechanics of its own.
Here are some quick highlights of some of the games features
>Ability to travel to both kanto and hoenn
>Gen 3 stats, moves, and pokemon
>No legendaries except for rayquaza and mewtwo
>There is only 1 rayquaza in the whole game and whoever beats the person who owns it in a battle becomes its new owner
>Gen 6 electric thunder wave immunity and grass grass status moves immunities
>Gen 5 egg moves
>Crazy money based breeding system. It costs 1.3 million for a 6 iv pokemon.
>Player customization, secret bases, clans
>Trading system and automatic ranked battle system
The list goes on. Come play this shit guys, you wont regret it!
I tried it, it's eh. Not my cup of tea.
So what happens if the owner of Rayquaza leaves and never comes back? If there's a "you have to battle [x] times a month" what's stopping them from getting on just to battle a couple people who'll throw the match then staying off until you need to do it again?
>implying anyone here thinks gamefreak makes good decisions
Last time I played they were trying to create their own tier system for the server because they were missing some OU mons for Hoenn. it was pretty awful.
>Arena Trap was apparently broken
>Dugtrio was popular
>people start using Diglett
>ban Diglett too
Oh and don't forget the Slaking debacle, where for the first few months after it was available it was stuck in ubers because Truant didn't work, and then they fixed Truant and then they didn't move Slaking down from Ubers for months afterwards. For the record, Tiers are determined before a fight and most ingame tournies forced them, meaning it, along with T-Tar, Dragonite, Snorlax, all these things, Uber and unable to use on anything even slightly noteworthy.
tl;dr these guys are idiots and I fear for how the game is now.
What so wrong about banning OP pokemon? Isn't that the point of tiering and banning? If it were exactly like smogon rules there would be absolutely no variation and no reason to play over a sim.
tl;dr It's its own shit.
>defending banning fucking Diglett from OU
I remember when /tr/ made a guild way back when it was great until the guild leader spazzed the fuck out over something
There's some sort of system in place, I don't remember the details though. I think the person with the legendary pokemon needs to come online once every few days or something
