  [Meta Thread] Pokerole Mystery Dungeon: Primal Shadows
Posted by: Dragonstrike - 03-29-2020, 05:38 PM - Forum: Roleplaying - Replies (27)

Time for another pokerole adventure to begin, this time hosted by me! 

[Image: 300px-Pok%C3%A9mon_Mystery_Dungeon_logo.png] 
Primal Shadows

Welcome to Pokerole Mystery Dungeon: Primal Shadows!

For those of you who are returning players from the other Pokerole campaigns we've hosted on this forum, I hope you're ready for an experience unlike any other we've played so far!

And for those of you who are new players, welcome to the roleplay section (and possibly the forums as well)!  We hope you'll enjoy your stay and have a lot of fun while you're here!

If you were a human who woke up as a pokemon one day, but had very little memory of your life from before you were a pokemon, what would you do?  How would you survive?  And more importantly, why were you turned into a pokemon in the first place?  This campaign seeks to answer those questions and more, as we go on an adventure across the world of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon!

Current Players:
1. Lord Windos (??? the ???)
2. PhantomUnderYourDesk (Kee the ???)
3. Spiritmon (Kogeki the ???)
4.
5.

If there are empty spots in the list above, then we have room for new players to join the game!  PM me if you'd like to join!

Do note that if you wish to join the game, it's expected that you'll be at least semi-active.  Posting in the game thread every other day at minimum is ideal, but it's to be expected that real life will get in the way of that every so often.  If and when something happens that interferes with your ability to play the game, inform the GM that you'll be unable to post if you can (and when you think you'll be able to resume posting if possible) so that they can take action accordingly.  If you're inactive for long periods of time, the GM may auto your character or remove the character from the game at their discretion.

Character Creation, Rules, and Other Stuff

To get the ball rolling on actually joining the game, if you don't have the Pokerole rulebooks downloaded yet, the first thing you'll need to do is download and read through them.  The first one you'll need is the corebook (we'll be using the 1.2.5 version, which is the latest one at the time of writing), and the second is the Pokerole Mystery Dungeon Module.  Click this link to go to the Resources tab of the Pokerole website, where you can download both the corebook and the Mystery Dungeon Module.

Now then, whether you're new to Pokerole or a returning player on these forums, here's a brief overview of some rules and mechanics that are relevant to this game!  If something has a page reference next to it and you want more information on the topic, you may want to read that section in the corebook or the Mystery Dungeon Module, starting on that specific page.  (Of course, it's good to read all of the rules regardless, and I highly recommend doing so if you're unfamiliar with them, but this post should work as a quick reference if needed)


And that should do it for the pre-game debrief!  I hope everyone's excited to get started, because I know I am!  If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in this Meta Thread or PM me. 

Pokerole Mystery Dungeon: Primal Shadows will begin once I either have at least 4 players participating or it is Tuesday, April 7th, 2020 (whichever comes first)!

  UCS Debrief: What It Took to be the Champ
Posted by: FamSlayer - 03-27-2020, 07:14 PM - Forum: Competitive Discussion - No Replies

Hello again, this is the followup post I mentioned in my drafting guide. As promised, I will be dumping all the teams I made for this season and tournament in this post, but I’ll also be going through my preparation each week in depth (some longer than others). Hopefully this will provide a more tangible grasp of my process than generally saying things like “build your opponent’s team first, and use a friend to battle against it.”


Thanks everyone for reading. As always, you can find me in the competitive discord (https://discord.gg/Peysqny) where I'm officially willing to answer all questions. Until next time,
-Fam

There's no thread about this on this semi-dead forum, so I thought I'll just make one now. Share thoughts, fears, opinions, viewpoints if desired, I'm curious to listen and wanted to give them a platform here.

I'll start: Things are serious, yes, but things still feel so...surreal for me. Maybe because not much's really different; I tend to wash my hands relatively often anyway and rarely ever leave the house unless I must, so if the curfew comes, I wouldn't mind too much.

Either way, stay safe and healthy~☆

It has been a long time since I first came here, asking for advice on my broken save file. I am a lonely person, finding it hard to make friends and connect with people, but I try everywhere I find myself. I was ready to meet new people and find my niche. But, there was few people on anymore (although I didn't know it). I tried reaching out, trying to trade with people, trying to make friends. But it did not work...

PhantomUnderYourDesk, I bred you a shiny Eevee, hoping that you would be my friend. But, in November, you stopped replying to my messages or looking at anything I posted. I wonder if I said or did anything to cause that! 
CodySP, thank you for helping me with my save file, it has enabled me to help many suffering souls on Reddit with issues they have. 
Spiritmon, I'm sorry for frightening you by my irritated comment a little while ago (I didn't know my words could frighten anyone!). Thank you for listening to me and all the other things you've done for me, although what they were escapes me at the moment. You have been very nice in offering the shiny lv100 near-perfect-stat Beliaddon, although there's nothing I can give you in exchange that would be worth it for you... 
TheTainted_Wisdom, I've read everything you've posted, heard many of your ideas and opinions, and received several wonderful pokemon friends from you. Your friendship has been invaluable to me, it has definitely helped me feel less alone in the world, and frankly, you're the reason I'm not leaving this forum forever to more active Pokemon Uranium areas (like Reddit).

I have noticed that there is almost no activity everywhere on this forum save for the roleplaying section. Therefore, I have an announcement. I will join the many who have left this forum for unknown reasons. I won't just disappear, though. I'll still ghost on and off, seeing how things are going, but I will no longer comment or post anything from now on. If anyone wants to trade with me or anything, they'll have to post it where I will be willing to reply. I don't have discord (and won't for a currently unknown length of time) so don't look for me there. 

I am tired of being largely ignored. Nothing that any of you say or do will prevent me from leaving. I am sorry it has to be this way, but this is all my fault. It is my fault for coming on a largely silent forum, naively thinking a lot of people were on here normally, and expecting to make friends with at least one person within the first 3-6 months, and trade with many more.

With that out of the way, I have a little confession to make. If any of you noticed that it was my birthday, sometime in August, well...... I lied. That's not my real birthday. And my age? That's not my real age, either. I chose both at random. And don't ask my birthday or my age either, because if I don't lie to you about it, I probably won't tell you. It's a little personal preference. 

I'm not angry at anyone on this forum. I will find people that enjoy (or at least don't mind) my company, eventually. I am now finished. This is the last post I will make, the last comment I will have, on this forum. I knew it would come to this eventually, I just didn't know when. I'm not deleting any of my comments or posts that have been previously made. I'm not quitting Pokemon Uranium. I'm not even slowing down on what I do on there. But, I am quitting here. Say what you will about my decision, what you say is up to you. Good luck to all of you on your various endeavors. We part ways, for now. Goodbye!

Bingo

  If you could make any 'mon Nuclear what would it be?
Posted by: TheTainted_Wisdom - 02-19-2020, 10:57 PM - Forum: Suggestions - Replies (8)

With Masking previously planned to have a nuclear form, the Pahar line getting one in the form of the Mystery Gift, and some Pokemon like Lavent getting shiny sprites that resemble Nuclear forms, I'm curious about what you would make into a Nuclear type, what secondary typing it would have, as well as Nuclear moves. Also, what would be your worst nightmare when it comes to having to fight against a hypothetical Nuclear mon?

I think the coolest (no pun intended) one for me personally would be a Nuclear and Ice Type Dermafrost. I just love the idea of a nuclear-corrupted Pokemon with thick sheets of ice as armor plating on some parts of its body while others burn with the heat of radiation as it lobs Atomic and Ice punches around. Although obviously this would never happen as even though the terrible Ice-typing coupled with Nuclear would be FAR from making it a gameplay-breaking threat, the only way for it to get Atomic Punch logically would be for it to learn it after leveling up from a Snopach, and nuclear Types can't learn nuclear Type moves as they level up. So it would have to be stuck with Nuclear Slash or Gamma Ray or something. Still, I love the idea of a custom sprite with a body that has both the blues of ice and the greens of radiation seemingly battling it out on the surface of the pokemon's body and generating steam in parts as a result.

I also like the idea of Antarki having a nuclear form because it would remind me of those shadow people from the Metro games. Having a Ghost-Nuclear typing, Half-Life, Gamma Ray, Grudge, and Ominous Wind. (Yeah I know it's supposed to be the good counterpart of Dramsama, but the idea is that it's been corrupted). It would also be cool to see a nuclear sprite that's a little closer to the original shiny since I'm not a fan of the newer sprite.

The idea of a Nuclear-Rock/Psychic type Astronite would be cool too. Just being this mysterious sentient celestial rock being with both Psychic AND nuclear powers. Having Gamma Ray, Solar Radiation (Basically a nuclear type version of Growth that boosts ATK and Sp ATK by one stage, and 2 stages in the sun), Meteor Mash, and Psywave.

And something that's always bugged me: How come *none* of the Nuclear Pokemon have ever been Flying types? I mean I could understand the balance issue of nuclear types having type immunities, were it not for the fact that there are plenty of Dark, Normal, and one set of Ground Nuclear mons that are all immune to Psychic, Ghost, and Electric moves respectively. Yet, Eshouten, Gyarados (though in that case it's entirely understandable), Gliscor, and even Pajay all lose their Flying Type, what gives?

Worst nightmare nuclears:

Well a Nuclear Actan comes to mind. Not so much because of its typing, ability, or even its base stats, so much as the idea of a perfect-stat Nuclear Actan being distributed as a Mystery Gift. (Though some of those other elements are certainly scary too even if abilities like Defiant and Competitive could turn Intimidate against it).

A Nuclear Lavent with any move other than Gamma Ray packing an Adaptability Flamethrower for Steel types would also be pretty nightmarish.

But I think a Nuclear Archilles/Inflagetah would probably be the worst. As cool as its sprite would be, a Nuclear powered stab fire/ground toting mega with solid/the best speed, +2 priority moves, AND nuclear attacks?!? Nooooooooooooothankyou!

  Uranium Championship Series Debrief Part 1: How To Draft
Posted by: FamSlayer - 02-18-2020, 11:28 AM - Forum: Competitive Discussion - No Replies

Hello, I am FamSlayer, the champion of The Uranium Championship Series for Season 1. Through no shortage of luck, I managed to go undefeated through the entire tournament, finishing with 9 straight wins between the regular season and the playoffs. To help competitors preparing for next season, I want to share as much of my strategy as possible so that the tournament and players can grow. This is the first post where I will be briefly breaking down the first part of the UCS: the draft.

The Uranium Championship Series is a draft league format, and if you don’t know what that means, you can read up on it here. The short version is that each of the 8 players take turns drafting from the Pokédex to make up a team. This draft will inform your entire season, and it is incredibly important. There are three general types of Pokémon that you should be prioritizing in draft.

The first type serves a vital utility in removing hazards such as Stealth Rocks and Sticky Web. Defog users are better than Rapid Spin users because they cannot be “spin blocked” by a ghost type, so prioritize them first. The best Defog users are Coatlith, Gliscor, and Gligar at the moment, although Gliscor and Gligar only get defog due to a bug in the online simulator, and that might be fixed before next season. I do not recommend a Defog (or Rapid Spin) user that is already weak to Stealth Rocks as you will have to take (at least) 25% when switching in. You have a couple more options when choosing a Rapid Spin user, but S51-A and Gararewl are still the best of the bunch, so pick them if you can. Unfortunately, assuming Gliscor’s access to Defog gets fixed, there will only be three “good” hazard removers, so I recommend drafting first! Remember, Pokémon like Splendidfowl may get Defog, but its weakness to Stealth Rocks will limit its effectiveness. If you were not lucky enough to get good hazard removal, you need to think more carefully about whether the key Pokémon on your team can be weak to rocks. Think twice about drafting Harptera and Inflagetah if your only way to remove hazards is Dermafrost.

Secondly, you want offensively threatening Pokémon with raw power. Actan, Yatagaryu, Harptera, Seikamater, Garlikid, Inflagetah, Mega-Archilles, Frikitiki, and Paraboom are perfect examples of pokemon that can 6-0 teams after just one turn of setup, and some with less than that. You’re looking for Pokémon  with very high speed or speed boosting moves, or ones that can easily spam high base power priority moves. Sometimes a Pokémon that is extremely difficult to kill and tends to OHKO things with its STAB moves like Actan or Mega-Syrentide fit the bill as well. 

Lastly, you need defensive Pokémon. You can’t expect to win every week with hyper offense, even though hyper offense is very strong in Pokémon Uranium. Antarki, Mega-Syrentide, Actan, Laissure, Luxelong, Gliscor, Escartress, Nimflora, Cubblfly, Tofurang, and Tubareel all serve different roles, but have unique typings and niches that make it difficult for one Pokémon to break through more than one or two. Pokemon with reliable recovery on this list deserve special recognition, like Antarki, Luxelong, and Escartress with Recover, and Gliscor, Nimflora, Cubblfly and Tofurang with Roost. These recovery moves allow these Pokémon to serve as true walls to much of the metagame, and will all serve you well on your team.

I made a tier document at the start of the season, and have updated it throughout as I have seen different Pokémon perform. This is only my opinion, so do not follow this as law. Also, don’t draft straight down this tier list, as there are far more important factors than what tier I put a Pokémon in, like how well it would work on your team.

FamSlayer's UCS Draft Tier List.


This is some basic information I wanted to get out before I made my followup post about teambuilding and preparation where I will be dumping (as promised) all of my teams. Thanks for reading, and be on the lookout for a followup post in the next couple of days!

  The Curious Case of HIDDEN Hidden Abilities
Posted by: TheTainted_Wisdom - 02-17-2020, 12:41 AM - Forum: Help Desk - Replies (4)

I'm not sure how common this knowledge is but I thought I'd put it here just in case. Both just as an "FYI" but also for the sake of getting clarification.

Everyone who's read Aiden's Breeding Guide knows about Hidden Abilities (Massive Thanks Shoutout for that by the way since I missed a LOT of developments since the last Pokemon game I played was XD Gale of Darkness) However, a while back I was breeding for a perfect stat Seikamater candidate, which resulted in a lot of time spent, and more than a few high/perfect IV male Tricwes. Naturally, I kept some of them to breed with other Bug Egg Group mons to transfer those IVs over.

But here's the thing, at least one of those Tricwes I was using for breeding passed on a HA to the offspring, despite neither the female mother, nor of course Tricwe (since it doesn't have an HA) having an HA present. (And, yes, this was a while ago, but I stopped while writing this, went into a cave with Gligars, caught one, and bred it with what I believed was the Tricwe with the "hidden HA," and literally the FIRST egg had a Gligar with Immunity.)

A bizarre circumstance to say the least, but this lead me to assume that the reason some Solar Power Nupins were in the Wonder Trade were due to using hacks, bred from a hacked Nupin, or using a Shiny Duplicat caught using the Pokeradar, as even though Duplicats don't have an HA, Shiny Pokeradar Grass Patches are supposed to be guaranteed to have HAs, and given the previous case of a mon without an HA generating offspring with an HA even when the mother did not possess it, I assumed it would be possible.

I tried a male Tancoon, a female Tancoon, and a genderless Comite bred with one of my many shiny Duplicats, yet even with a sample size of 15 or so offspring apiece, not ONE had their HA.

So I would have to assume that this is only something that can happen via breeding, as the Tricwe in question was bred from a female Tricwe + a male mon that had an HA, and it's the only way for something that doesn't have an HA to be treated as if it has an HA. However, given that there aren't that many breedable Gendered mons without HAs, I don't have anything to compare this too, so perhaps it's something that can only happen to the Tricwe/Seikamater pre-evolution linneage or something. Regardless, there appears to be no way to get the HAs for genderless mons that can't be picked up with the Pokeradar like S51, Tracton, and Nupin unless someone trades the offspring of a hacked mon like with those Solar Powered Nupins that have been floating around.

  Is this Ban-Worthy?
Posted by: TheTainted_Wisdom - 01-08-2020, 04:08 PM - Forum: Help Desk - Replies (4)

Okay, so I just became aware a few days ago that the Nuclear Actan is still kicking around in some capacity.

Let's say, hypothetically, I or anyone else were to somehow get my hands on one. Be it via Wonder Trade by some miracle, tweaking files to get rid of the patches that prevent the glitch that made catching it possible, or just straight-up hacking one from a Chiynmunk if I somehow figured out how to do that.

If this Actan were to attempt to be traded in the GTS, or set up on a Virtual Trainer team... Would that get my file/game banned from online use? I've gotten the message "you have been banned from online play/services" erroneously before so I know it's possible. I just don't want to go through the effort of trying to get something awesome only get completely and utterly locked out of the game's online community just for doing so. I also don't relish the idea of going through a ton of effort only for the Virtual Trainer I try to make to just get banned and disappear anyway.

  Virtual Trainer Suggestions/ID numbers
Posted by: TheTainted_Wisdom - 01-07-2020, 06:01 PM - Forum: Battle and Trade - Replies (2)

So I've been working on breeding some mons with solid stats and moves all the way to LV 100 anyway. So I figured that after discovering how to create multiple save files I'd create some novelty Virtual Trainers that people could fight for fun.

I'm already working towards a Curie-themed VT (albeit really slowly) with Urayne, Pajay, Gliscor, Xenoqueen, Jerbolta, Mega Arbok, Mega Baariette, Mega Gyarados, etc. as considerations (All nuclear obviously) Minus Nucleon since the rival and most VTs have it anyway. Or maybe even a shiny Lavent if I can find one just for shiggles.

Another one would be an Eviolite-focused one with things like Cubblfly, Gligar, Cararalm, Sableau, Corsola, Folerog, Dearewl, Skelerogue, Misdreavus, Palij, Primape, etc. all with Eviolite.

A stall VT with Umbreon, Lanthan, Seikamater, Corsoreef, etc.

And lastly a Malevolent/Dark/Ghost mon VT with things like Chainite, Mega Gyarados/Baariette/Dramsama, Mismagius, Beliaddon, Navighast, Vilucard, Sableye, and Oblivicorn.

I was also considering some meme and even juvenile joke pokemon like my Fafninter nicknamed "TRoosevelt" or getting a female Aromatisse so I could have it say "Can-can dancer"/"Slut"/"Hooker" Used "Attract!"/"Captivate!", "Penis" Used "Harden!", "Emo" Used "Cut!" (yes I know that move isn't in the game, it's just an example) that kind of thing.

Do any of you have suggestions of what a funny or interesting combination of Pokemon, Moves, Abilities, Names, etc. You'd like to see as virtual trainers? And what would your ideal combination of 'mons consist of? (I know that the VT AI isn't exactly Chess Grandmaster levels of strategic and all, but this is more for novelty than anything else).
