    pokemon can talk …… I’m too old for this

    • PreyMantis

      Uhh… Pokémon always had talking monsters. The very first series and movie had Mewtwo and Meowth talking. You’re just too young to know.

      • ash32121

        i haven’t seen the anime since a long time, i know that Meowth can talk and that pretty much it.

        • Sakurazaki

          Mewtwo in the movies spoke with telepathy, but other than that, no.

        • That’s the only known talking Meowth. Slowking talks too.

        • Raltrios

          Lugia could also speak in his movie. As could Entei in his. Arceus could speak too, of course.
          Though naturally all of these were with thought-speak.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Ash…you don’t age bro.

      • Diinytroc

        Most cartoon characters don’t age.

      • MXC

        What are you talking about? He recently grew teeth silly.

    • Guest

      Legendaries in every Pokémon movie talk, no exceptions.

      • Tharius

        Latias/Latios, Celebi, Deoxys/Raquaza, Regice/rock/steel, Dialga/Palkia, Giratina, Victini. I’m pretty sure none of those ever spoke in movies. There might be more, but thats all i could think of off hand.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Oh great more kids spamming Dark void

    Shawn uses”Taunt”

    NVM I’m good

    • cameron forsyth

      yeah there are far too many counters for status moves in general, my personal favourite…

      cam uses “magic coat”

      darkai’s darkvoid was reflected back
      darkrai fell asleep

      or just switch into my Magic bounce espeon

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        Magic bounce, Espeon is the best since everyone loves using blissy and spore

      • Raltrios

        The Magic Bounce play is often easy to predict, though. I’m quite fond of Sticky Web, so I often lead with my Galvantula. If I know they’ve got an Espeon, I’ll usually switch tactics and start with either Bug Buzz, or Volt switch to a Scizor or Bisharp and Pursuit trap it.

        • cameron forsyth

          oh yeah magic bounce reflects sticky web, lol i have to try that someday and i’m guessing it’s a focus stash galvantula which coveres the free switch to a heavy hitter fire type (those are overabundant in the metagame). but yeah i ussually use espeon to counter saboteurs like klefki and sabyleye.

          as for sticky web in general i have my own special counter by using a contrary spinda (which causes sticky web to increase my speed) to begin sweeping with moves like superpower, and assist; giving spinda access to moves like V-create and such.

    Hoping we’ll see some kind of similar event elsewhere in the world.

  • CirnoLakes

    Someone needs to fly me over to Japan. I want a legitimate Diancie as soon as possible. ;_; I’m absolutely in love with how cute it is.

    And no, while I do collect Legendaries and event Pokemon just like any other Pokemon, I’m not so much a Legendary enthusiast and they aren’t my favourite type of Pokemon.

    I just like cute Pokemon and being an event legendary means I can’t miss out. Mew, Celebi and Jirachi are all Pokemon I treasure and have done my very best to get legitimately because I love them so. And Diancie is my new favourite legendary and event Pokemon, I absolutely must them(Diancie is genderless? And ‘they’ is a genderless pronoun)

    They are so cute! And they talk! And their voice acting was so adorable.
    “Watakushi wa Diancie”
    Ohh, so adorable. I must meet a Diancie and have them on my team. Diancie event, oh please happen soon.

      So you’re a cute legendary enthusiast? Okay, count me in. >:)
      Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, Victini and now Diancie- gotta cuddle them all. >:D

      • CirnoLakes

        “gotta cuddle them all.”
        I completely agree with this sentiment! :3

        Well, I’m more of a cute enthusiast than a legendary enthusiast. But being event exclusive or legendary makes them all the more precious in some ways. After all, they’re not only cute, but very, very strong!

        Also, event exclusive Pokemon are very special.

        • CirnoLakes

          I kind of like and don’t like the event exclusive thing at the same time. On the one hand, it makes you feel very special if you have a special Pichu or a legendary Pokemon. At the same time, you have to be vigilant in order to not miss events. As much as it makes it all the more rewarding to have legitimate event Pokemon. I can see how frustrating it must be to miss out on Pokemon for years at a time because one wasn’t an active Pokemon fan when it was happening. Or even worse, isn’t in the country that the Pokemon is available in.

          I can see how it tempts people into getting Pokemon though illegitimate means. And is a part of why the online training and training community has to use so many things like PokeCheck in order to avoid widespread hacks.

          On the one hand, if Pokemon are too common, then rare Pokemon like this don’t feel like the rare part of special events that they are. And Pokemon like this should feel special and like a part of a rare celebration. I’m really looking forward to being a part of it, and taking pictures and showing off getting legitimate event Pokemon. At the same time, Pokemon like this don’t become as rare or special if they’re so rare that many people are encouraged to start buying hacking hardware and software in order to get such Pokemon. To the point that there are so many illegitimate Pokemon that it is hard for the legitimate trading and raising Pokemon community.

          So I feel that there are two sides to this issue. And that the event distribution method isn’t perfect, especially since many countries don’t have Pokemon events at all.

          Still, I’m looking forward to the great experience of getting my Pokemon legitimately and knowing my Diancie will be special and unique. I’m planning on taking pictures and everything just to commemorate the event.

          • s07195

            Nice! Hopefully HK will get an event soon… We’ve only had a special ‘Weakness Policy’-holding Sylveon event for promoting X/Y.
