  1. Oh well, do not ask me about nicknames... Every Pokémon has to have a nickname in my game! Mostly I give them names I like, in most cases it is just the name with no additional meaning or something. A great part do have something in common with the name of the Pokémon. That could be the first 1/2/3 characters of the name, maybe a particle of it, or a name which is hidden in the Pokémon name. But I do like names with a meaning, so a name with a meaning which is striking for the Pokémon could be applied too. Furthermore, the 'meaningful' names, which are no common names for people, but based on things, phenomena or thoughts, are another category. And what is left, are the funny names! Of course I do not like some Pokémon, so I will torment them with a weird nickname. And others just have bad luck. That category is not that relevant for people here, because they are mostly made out of jokes in my native language. And translating them would be dumb. Let's explain some names, then! Ambipom: Ambidexter (F/M) Very funny for such an idiotic Pokémon like Ambipom. ^^ Roselia: Rosalie (F) An 'anagram' for Roselia (although only two vowels are swapped), and well, just look at the name... It is almost the same, and it has something to do with roses. Salamence: Salami (F/M) Another name which is not that serious, but as you can see the first five letters are the same. Lunatone: Luna (F) About 'names in names', Luna is very striking for a Pokémon that looks like a moon! Sandshrew/Sandslash: Sandra (F) Instead of Wraith picking the 'shrew' part, I picked the 'sand' part and wait, Sandra contains the word sand! Plain and simple. Nidorina: Rina (F) I think I do not have to explain that name? Kadabra: Kadaver (F/M) Well, from the department of morbid humour, the name is derived from Cadaver, as you could notice. Bellsprout/Weepingbell/Victreebel: Bella (F) The whole evolutionary chain contains at least the letters 'bel', so... Ponyta: Lavinia (F) I really like that name, and somewhere it almost has 'lava' in it, so it looks suitable for a Fire Pokémon. But besides that, it is just a cute name for a Ponyta. Muk: Musk (F/M) A well-known ingredient of perfume, must smell a lot nicer than a Muk, according to the Pokédex! Tangela: Angela (F) The most extreme form of 'a name in a name', just remove the T and you get Angela. Omastar: Stella (F) This one is clear I suppose? Moltres: Sulfura (F/M) Sulfura is the French name of Moltres, derived from sulphur as it seems. Anyway, I like that name a lot better! Dratini: Snoepje (F) The diminutive of sweet or candy in Dutch, because Dratini is such a sweet thing. ^^ Meganium: Megan (F) It is starting to get a bit boring with explaining... Noctowl: Athena (F) This one is as cliché as it can be, I am afraid. Flaaffy: Morgana (F) Yes, this one is a least thought-through. Morgana is the shepherdess from the opera Alcina of Georg Friedrich Händel (which is based on the epic of Ludovico Ariosto, named 'Orlando Furioso'). I am not really sure, but I thought Morgana did not belong to the epic of Ariosto, although the link between sheep and shepherdess is close enough, I think. Sudowoodo: Sudoku (F/M) Well, look at the similarity. A funny name for people who like those games. Sunkern/Sunflora: Sunny (F) The perfect Pokémon to be called Sunny, I think. Wooper: Miyako (F) I really like this name, but I only recently gave it to my Woopers/Quagsires. It comes from 'mi' (beautiful), 'ya' (night) and 'ko' (child). 'Ko' is often used for the end of female names, but the meaning of it is in this case fairly good for a little Wooper. Mantine: Tamanta (F/M) The romanised Japanese name, I believe. Tamana could also be used if you have a female Mantine. Skarmory: Victoria (F) I have the tendency to give birds the name Victoria (I used it for Fearow and Pidgeotto too, for example). Tyranitar: Tyra (F) Drop -nitar and you get this! I do not have Tyranitars often, though. Lugia: Lucia (F) One character change and you got a proper name. Ho-oh: Aurelia (F) For those who do not know; it means 'Dawn'. Linoone: Angelina (F) Especially the 'Lina' part comes from Linoone. Kirlia: Kiri (F) Named after the girl in Sootopolis City who gives you berries every day. "My parents wished I would grow healthy and warm-hearted", or something like that. Gardevoir: Cynthia (F) Plusle: Kyrielle (F) I listed this one because I have no clou where I found this weird name. Torkoal: Etna (F) Well, you could use another random volcano on earth for it. Regirock: Ragnarok (F/M) I cannot get enough of this: Ragnarok looks a lot like Regirock. It comes from the Norse mythology of course, the awaiting disastrous events in the future that destroy everything. Well, maybe a bit optimistic for Regirock's power, I guess. ^^ Regice: Antarctica (F/M) Another 'meaningful' name of the same kind as the one above, but Antarctica is a very innocent name instead. Infernape: Incendie (F) Incendie means 'fire' in French. Bronzong: Campanella (F/M) Meaning 'little bell' in Italian, and I believe Bronzong is supposed to be a bell? Snover: Setsuna/Suzuna (F) I used both names, but Setsuna had something to do with snow ('calm snow', or something). Togekiss: Valentina (F) Named after my favourite classical pianist Valentina Lisitsa. Gallade: Ballade (F/M) Again, the secret of one character change! Together with Waltz (for Ralts), I would make a whole dance related evolutionary chain, but I cannot come up with a good dance which looks like Kirlia and Gardevoir. Froslass: Candy (F) Because Froslass looks like a candy, with that ribbon around her middle. Uxie: Gyeonmun I could not come up with a good name for it, something with acuity did not work too, so I switched to Korean. It seems to mean 'knowledge', but there is a chance I picked the wrong word. Heatran: Lavana (F) I thought one of the three minor leaders of team Dim Sun was called Lavana.
  2. Really? But the Bule version is focussed mainly on non-Japanese culture, as you could read in my short summary! Or is there any town called Plataeae at Hokkaido?
  3. Yeah, I did not expect to fit perfectly in your descriptions, but still I have to choose in some way between them! I do not really know which aspect of the description is more accurate for me, so that is why I wrote a long story about it. Noblesse includes the aesthetic vision more, but Everstonite is just more than true as a result from that emphasis on aesthetics... but those aesthetics work something different for me, as you can read. And I want to choose one of them, because when everyone sticks with 'Others' (because nothing really fits, as you stated yourself) it results in a boring poll result in which 90% chose 'Others' or something. :\
  4. I think they did not sell the Bule version in Korea, Wraith. But it is a really interesting version of the old games, in which you have to choose Bulebasaur as starter, after a short preambule of Bach that keeps you waiting, and after hours of gameplay you finally battle the Eltie Fout at Indigo Plataeae (an restored ancient Greek temple). It is a shame you did not know about this highly interesting game! Besides that, welcome to Project Pokémon, Bioshadow! I hope you will enjoy your stay here in the end and have fun browsing the forum. I was wondering if you came to PP for specific reasons, if you maybe have some specific interests about the Pokémon games (like competitive battling, hacking and editing and the like)..? I almost forgot to put my question mark there, I write such weird sentences... Well, I hope to see you again!
  5. Hehe, you have to be bored more often, Wraith! Only in this way there are some funny topics created at PP. And I like those polls, too. Let's see what I have to say about it... [icon]300[/icon]Everstonites You only like using cute Pokemon and don't care if they win or lose in a battle. In fact, evolving Pokemon makes them ugly; why do it? Some have gone far to become Infante Fatale; winning battles with deceptively powerful baby Pokemon! [icon]282[/icon]The Noblesse You only like using Pokemon of elegant quality in terms of aesthetics, such as Empoleon or Gardevoir. You're born a noble, so you should put up that image to whoever you're around and avoid using ragtag Pokemon like Rattata or Zubat. In extreme cases, they are extremely picky and do not even acknowledge the existence of commoner Pokemon. I just quoted a random compilation of the types of Trainers and some additional writing which are applicable to me, I think. Firstly, I am definitely an Everstonite, because I am always running out of Everstones in my game (recently, I had to dig them up in the underground of Sinnoh!). Actually, I really detest the 'real babypokémon' like Pichu, Igglybuff, Azurill and the such, but I am very fond of the first stages of evolutionary chains. So yeah, I cannot deny I am not picking cute, little Pokémon. Secondly, to define why I somehow belong to the 'Others' group and to explain why I think 'Noblesse' would also be right to choose: I am primarily focussed on aesthetic values of Pokémon. This expresses itself mainly in choosing Pokémon I like, which are mostly those little creatures and some elegantly looking Gardevoir things - very subjective of course. But in this way, the two groups overlap each other. What does not really fit, is that I am not really a noble type, and besides, it would conflict with my love for some 'ordinary' Pokémon like Zigzagoon or something. So if I would be more accurate, I would say I belong somewhere in a grey area between those Everstonites and Noblesses. And why I quoted you Wraith, was because I somehow thought the same about the group 'Islanders', but there always are some Pokémon outside of the selected group who I cannot exclude (like some Sinnoh Pokémon). Aside from some specific Sinnoh Pokémon I like, I am not really a Gen IV (and totally not a) Gen V enthusiast. I do not know with option I should vote for the poll, though, so I still have to think about it! But it is a nice poll you made.

    No, I do not know what you mean, actually. That is why I ask people what kind of music they like, because it seems a universal 'good' or 'bad' does not exist... It would be pretty difficult to say how many 'disappointments' some kind of music need to have to be classified as bad (or good), otherwise. Maybe you can explain a bit what is good in your opinion? (I you want)

    Hello Rilgar! Welcome to Project Pokémon! I hope you liked the site so far, and hopefully you will enjoy your time here in the future. If you have aspirations to get back into wi-fi battling; there is a whole board dedicated to competitive battling, so I think you will have to check it out! It is not really my cup of tea by the way, but others can help you out definitely (if needed, of course). Well finally, I want to question one thing which has nothing to do with Pokémon (although, it depends on your answer). I do like to know what kind of music you prefer and if you maybe have some favourite artists? If you would answer that for me, I'm happy. Enjoy your stay and I hope to see you again!
  8. Hello Kirak! Welcome to Project Pokémon! I am always wondering how people can keep up with more fora, and being active everywhere! Only PP will keep me going enough, for the time being... or maybe even too much. Anyway, I greatly hope you will get to know the community a little, for I believe I did not succeed in it so far, but you can give it a try. So, what is your main interest to become a member here? Are you busy with editing/hacking, with competitive battling, with just the games, or something else? Well, enjoy your time here and I hope to see you again!

  10. I think I take that more as a problem, those high prizes. I mean, Voltorb flipping is quite good for earning coins, but to get 10000 each time is a bit hard. Maybe I am the only one who is bored enough to buy a Dratini, TM13 and TM24 in the Game Corner, but... In Pearl I would not even try to 'gamble' such high prizes. It is such a ridiculous difference between getting a Pokémon like Dratini, as I mentioned, and a simple TM like Ice Beam! So, indeed, raising the prizes and remove the Coin Dealer was not really a good move. But to be honest, if the prizes were lower, I do not miss the Coin Dealer... I really like Voltorb flipping in a spare moment. Well, if you get used to Voltorb flip, you can play it much faster, I noticed. I make a lot of mistakes too, but you can at least optimize your time investment with it.
  11. That's weird. To earn a 'measly 3000 coins' with gambling back in the days of FireRed and LeafGreen, it took an hour (if it is not more than that), too. And those fruit machines do not guarantee a win, just like Voltorb flipping. In both games there is a large element of chance (like, they are created for that!) and Voltorb flipping also incorporates Skill... I mean, I you have the Skill, you can win a ton. By the way, a mistake with Voltorb flipping does not cost you any coins, while a mistake in that gambling game costs you three coins each turn. Practically, you cannot lose any coins with Voltorb flipping, so what is the problem with that game? :\
  12. Do I have to be afraid to hit you up on your VM wall then, since I do not know (of) you? ^^Well, beside that, welcome to Project Pokémon. What is you main interest to become active here (again), if I may ask you? I hope you enjoy your time and the such!
  13. Whether the Aprijuice decreases or increases a stat fully depends on your Pokémon. In principle, every juice will increase or decrease something... but for some Pokémon it does not seem to decrease a stat. I thought that had something to do with their condition, which varies every day. On the other hand, you cannot give your Pokémon more juices than one at the same time. The effects of the second juice you will give your Pokémon replaces those of the juice you have given it before.

    <p><p><p><p><p><p>P.O.W.E.R. is not really well-known, but it was a Canadian industrial rap group back in the '90. Accidentally, their full-length is the only rap record I've got.
