[QUOTE=RenegadeCop;51092723]PokeMMO looks really fun. Who here actually plays it? I might be down for playing with some of you guys.[/QUOTE] Well so far from Facepunch it's me, HybridTheory and Radio Flyer that I know of. We started off in Kanto and I can upload the rom I use for some of the mods/link you to some I've found to be useful. Totally down for playing with anyone from Facepunch as well. For those who are interested here's a link [url]https://pokemmo.eu/[/url]

[QUOTE=HybridTheroy;51092417]PokeMMO is the only decent one I know of. All of the other ones I've seen are cheap knockoffs and doesn't really use an actual pokemon game as a base. May I ask what's so bad about PokeMMO?[/QUOTE]Everything put it quite nicely. PRO has the same problem but larger. Just as an example I find menu design to be extremely important in a lot of games (despite being barely important) because so many menus look amateur. HUD design too but that's more important.

The point is that it should be much better than it is right from the start. Saying "it's kinda crap but you can mod it" is a kinder way of saying "they didn't put in the effort, so you need to instead"
What it doesn't have is proper attack animations or sounds and that's what irks me the most.

Saying "it's kinda crap but you can mod it" is a kinder way of saying "they didn't put in the effort, so you need to instead"[/QUOTE] I don't think it's crap though I think it's pretty good, I was just showing off the mods I use and letting users know they can customize menus :v: The mods don't fix anything anyways it just lets you customize the game. If I thought it was crap though I wouldn't be playing it or recommending it to anybody.
Eh, whatever, it wasn't a particularly pertinent point on my part anyway. Back on topic, I feel like pokemon fangames have some of the harshest expectations to live up to of any franchise I can think of. Everyone has their own ideas for the direction the series should go, new things it should do or old things it should bring back, and many will crucify you if you don't do those things exactly like they hoped you would, if you even do them at all. I'm a critic, sure, but I've seen how horribly brutal some people can be to pokemon fangame devs, insisting either it be made exactly to their whims alone, or that they should give up altogether. Even some of the huge team-built projects (that got so big PokemonCo put their foot down) wound up getting this same sort of violent critical flogging in some form or another before they even had a demo.
-snip basically page spamming- If any you want to add me and maybe start a team my IGN for PokeMMO is ArcNova
[QUOTE=IceCKryss;51092335]To be fair that battle can be bullshit even if you have a good knowledge of type matchups and are regularly training your team. Especially if you chose Mudkip; Grovyle's Leaf Blade will tear your team apart.[/QUOTE] At that point, Grovyle only knows Absorb. That battle is actually pretty easy if you catch and train a Gulpin, found only on that route.

[QUOTE=Steel & Iron;51093541][t]http://www.pokebeach.com/news/0916/Charizard-Pokemon-TCG-Evolutions-Base-Set.jpg[/t] Evolutions reprint on the left, original Base set on the left. Kinda bummed they don't even look similar.[/QUOTE] Part of the reason for the major difference in appearance is because the reprint is based off of the original Japanese formatting for the card: [IMG]https://www.professor-oak.com/images/Pokemon/Base/IMG_3428.JPG[/IMG] Granted, the reprint still has some differences, but it's much closer in appearance overall to it's source. :eng101:

On the subject of cards, are there even places to sell them? I bought for the first time 2 boosters from the "Ancient Origins" series and got this: [img_thumb]http://assets.pokemon.com/assets/cms2/img/cards/web/XY7/XY7_EN_98.png[/img_thumb] Apparently is 25$ or something like that. Also got a Goodra and Jolteon in holo form.
Regarding the Pokémon Showdown tourney, is it going to be Singles or Doubles? I'm hoping Doubles, all the fun shit happens there.

Whos voicing Blue (Green?) he sounds so familiar.

I wasn't expecting any sort of amazing quality and groundbreaking.
Do you guys think Porcupin (porcupine+pin) and Porcuspine (porcupine+spine) are good names for a pure Normal two-stage porcupine line? Or do they seem lazy because they're both just one letter off from porcupine?

I just sold a 40 dollar Yugioh card on TCGPlayer with no issues a few weeks ago so you might wanna try there.

The Japanese release kinda bummed me out, seeing as how they only reprinted Charizard's line and not the other two.

For those who are interested here's a link [url]https://pokemmo.eu/[/url][/QUOTE] I might actually try this out. See if I can get a friend in on it too. Might be good fun. Never really tried much in the way of fan made games before, with the exception of trying Storm Silver and the Black and White equivalents. I was generally shit at both and frequently got my ass handed to me. Made me realise how bad at it I really am if the actual games weren't so god damn easy.
