    Wow this looks good! If you have anymore fusions I would love to see them.

    Sometimes I wish Pokémon would introduce fusions like this but chances are we’d get a cross between a Bidoof and a Wobbuffet and then everyone would forget about trashing on Z-moves

    Shellder is my favorite Pokemon... He went from adorable to badass... Thank you.

I've finished making the box sprites for both Gen 2 and 3 out of Perler beads!!! Switch for scale.

    Here is just Gen 2 and just Gen 3. Most importantly here is my cat for scale with Gen 2.

    The sprites are from this page on Bulbapedia. If you would like to see any sprite specifically, let me know as I have individual pictures of all of them. And lastly these are regular Perler beads, not minis.

    Do you have a list of all the bead colors that you use? The shading and highlights look great!

  • Exiled_Survivor
    1 points Mar 25,2019, 2:54pm

    Holy shit! That must have taken a lot of time and effort! Now to do Gens 1, 4, 5, 6, and 7. I know, that will take ages, but from what I can see in this picture, I know it'll look AMAZING. Also, nice switch in the bottom left of the (AMAZING looking) pokes.

    EDIT: I JUST noticed you organized them by dex number! That's cool! Also, it'd be cool if you did all the megas that way, too. I'd pay money to have a collection like that, honestly.

    EDIT 2: I just carefully read the title, and now I feel like an idiot (kinda) for shouting out your switch when it was just there for scale. What size tray did you need to use for these guys (I'm assuming perler beads are the ones you need to put on those little spiky boards and then iron to finalize the pattern)?

  • GayName22

    I think Im one of those that never expected a BOTW style Pokémon because like...

    Pokemon is a heavy story focused game with levels... It wouldn't work

  • HarpietheInvoker
    23 points Mar 24,2019, 9:58am

    I never wanted pokemon BOTW style so I'm personally fine sticking to what I enjoy and what works

  • Mpasserby
    13 points Mar 24,2019, 12:12pm

    Imo when people say BOTW style Pokémon game they don’t mean it has to be an open world free roam adventure game. Most people want a breath of fresh air in the games like how Mario Odyssey or BOTW redefined those style of games. Frankly game freak has been kinda lazy with the past couple installments and it would be nice to see a revitalization of the old Pokémon formula.

  • _Marxes_
    17 points Mar 24,2019, 9:49am

    I didn't think they would make pokemon into the next BOTW, but I still was let down because they just improved the graphics for the first main series game on home consol and didn't try to make a change like BOTW or Odysey. At least they should implement a hard mode.

  • Hemlock_Deci
    11 points Mar 24,2019, 10:18am

  • Noelle_LoL

    Everyone expected it from the biggest franchise in the world after Zelda did it, even more so after fans have been begging for it for years.

    But we forgot one little detail: Gamefreak's philosophy is to not do those type of games anymore, they never try to make something groundbreaking and never will.

    They just milk the cow with basic games + rotating some gimmicks. It works because the originals are a masterpiece formula.

    They still sell milions, so us fans must come to terms with the reality that pokemon BOTW will never happen, just another basic gen with updated graphics yey.

  • Kazemel89
    8 points Mar 24,2019, 9:53am

    Wish they’d make a spin off series that was like BOTW or open world. It’s not that hard if low graphics and totally possible on Switch capabilities.

    What I'd like to see implemented in a Pokémon game, that BOTW gave to me is the immersion in the world, the animals in there looked like they belonged to the nature, some were aggressive, some passive, when I first saw it, I thought to myself "imagine if those were Pokémon, that's what I want to see in Pokémon".

    Imagine you walking through a forest and finding Caterpies in the trees or in the grass, maybe being pursued by a Pidgey or another predator, walking through a volcano area and seeing aggressive Pokémon like Magmar fighting for the territory or surfing through the ocean and seeing a Wailord in the distance or just below the surface, just imagine the kind of side quests we could have for the legendaries! The encounters could be about the same as they were in LGPE, some Pokémon would charge into you, others would mind their own business and others you would have to pursue or sneak upon.

    The game wouldn't even need to be free-roam, just make the routes larger and the camera would need to be third person too, just with these two things the world would be a lot more immersive, because as it is right now, it doesn't really feel like the Pokémon live in there, I mean, it's fun, but could be a lot better, those kind of things are in my opinion what makes BOTW or Red Dead Redemption so good to me, the world feels alive, it's not because it's open world, it's because of how the NPCs behave.

    I got a copy of Platinum at the beginning of last summer. I could barely contain my excitement while waiting for it to arrive. Once the game arrived, I couldn’t put it down. It was like Pearl, but better.

    While it definitely has its flaws, Platinum was super enjoyable to play. Here’s hoping that the gen 4 remakes are based on it.

    So what you're saying is that Platinum is basically old enough to start it's own Pokemon journey.

  • darkyoungsterjoey

    Maybe they stopped making third versions because they knew they could never top Platinum.

    I guess you could say... they went platinum?

    This game is my favorite game to play. I never reseted the game, and I abused this game with all the cheats I did. This game soon became the passport game. It hosted pokemon from the gen three titles and they stayed their. I don't have money for pokebano though, but I still remember my first pokemon me and my brother raised to level one hundred; Empoleon. I need to say thanks to this game for helping me become the pokemon lover I am today, even though I don't have enough to buy a switch.

    I lost my pokemon platinum on a plane ride home from grandma and grandpas ~9 years ago. Diamond and Pearl were OK but I can't seem to remember ever beating the elite four on them, I always got to Palkia and quit. And when I lost platinum I swore off gen 4 forever (I was also 12 so there was a lot of crying involved)

    A little over a year ago when I picked up Platinum for dirt cheap again. I was on the downward slope of a pokemon kick (games go in waves for me) and put it away.

    With the announcement of Sword and Shield I started getting nostalgic, did another playthrough of ultra sun, and afterwards picked up platinum again. I had left off about to enter the team galactic base, which is almost the end of the story.

    I literally beat Giratina and the 8th gym yesterday, and it's really funny seeing this pop up on reddit now

    TLDR: After 10 years I'm finally about to beat a 4th gen game

    Also side note: I forgot how hard the old games were. I typically beat every trainer and do 0 grinding outside of it, and every trainer is matching or above my level. It's really satisfying

    I remember desperately wanting this game throughout most of 2009. Unfortunately I live in a country where Nintendo games are hard to find due to their lack of official presence. So you should have seen my face when I was finally able to get my hands on a copy at the end of the year. It's for that reason that this is probably my most cherished game of the series.

    As a 14ish year old I completed the full Dex for Platinum. 3 or so years ago I reset that save and 1 year ago I realized WiFi has been disabled for the games so I basically cannot complete the dex again because of Spiritomb.

    I'm debating whether or not its worth it to play through to Eterna 32x on my other DS in Pearl or Diamond to local play for Spiritomb.

    Platinum holds a special place in my heart because I didn't get a DS until 2010 and was stuck in the 3rd generation with Emerald for half a decade desperate to play the new DS games but my family wasn't doing so good so that had to wait. When I finally got my DS and Platinum with it I didn't put the game down for several months and even bred my first even Battle Frontier ready team (Garchomp, Starmie, Lucario).

    Haven't played it in a long time now, should definitely give it another run soon.

    I can only hope that gen 8 lives up to this game in my eyes, ultra sun/moon was cute and fun but felt shallow in terms of content, omega ruby felt like there was way more to do and was an excellent remake , and x/y were okay, but platinum and hg/ss were the last pokemon games where I felt "hooked" and couldn't play any other game

    I remember I ordered it off ebay in 7th grade when it came out, and I came home every day for a week and a half to check the mailbox and see if it arrived. The day it arrived I was so excited. I think it must have been some B grade copy because the thing took 5 minutes to save the game everytime, and by the time I hit the endgame was completely broken and froze at the start of every encounted. Nonetheless, 7th grade me played the shit out of that game and loved it.

    Sapphire may have been my first game, but my favorite pokemon game as a kid was Platinum. I loved the designs of the pokemon, the Sinnoh region, and especially the music from this game. The sprite design was at its peak in this gen too (Gen V was just too grainy and the camera angles really showed it). Damn I'm gonna have to dig this game up now.

    Platinum was my very first pokemon game and one of the first real video games I ever played, and I played it a lot. I picked turtwig because I got a grotle in my first pack of cards, and to this day thenjubilife city theme is my favorite of all pokemon music except maybe ultra necrozma. hearing the piano cover of it in y gave me tears, and I know that the inevitable remakes will do the same. I love this game more than I can say, and all I can say is thank you to game freak for impacting me so much with this series, happy birthday giratina, heres to future remakes

    But it's not Giratina's birthday... he existed before Platinum. He was catchable in Diamond and Pearl.

    I got a copy of Platinum at the beginning of last summer. I could barely contain my excitement while waiting for it to arrive. Once the game arrived, I couldn’t put it down. It was like Pearl, but better.

    While it definitely has its flaws, Platinum was super enjoyable to play. Here’s hoping that the gen 4 remakes are based on it.

    Maybe they stopped making third versions because they knew they could never top Platinum.

    This game is my favorite game to play. I never reseted the game, and I abused this game with all the cheats I did. This game soon became the passport game. It hosted pokemon from the gen three titles and they stayed their. I don't have money for pokebano though, but I still remember my first pokemon me and my brother raised to level one hundred; Empoleon. I need to say thanks to this game for helping me become the pokemon lover I am today, even though I don't have enough to buy a switch.

    I lost my pokemon platinum on a plane ride home from grandma and grandpas ~9 years ago. Diamond and Pearl were OK but I can't seem to remember ever beating the elite four on them, I always got to Palkia and quit. And when I lost platinum I swore off gen 4 forever (I was also 12 so there was a lot of crying involved)

    A little over a year ago when I picked up Platinum for dirt cheap again. I was on the downward slope of a pokemon kick (games go in waves for me) and put it away.

    With the announcement of Sword and Shield I started getting nostalgic, did another playthrough of ultra sun, and afterwards picked up platinum again. I had left off about to enter the team galactic base, which is almost the end of the story.

    I literally beat Giratina and the 8th gym yesterday, and it's really funny seeing this pop up on reddit now

    TLDR: After 10 years I'm finally about to beat a 4th gen game

    Also side note: I forgot how hard the old games were. I typically beat every trainer and do 0 grinding outside of it, and every trainer is matching or above my level. It's really satisfying

    I remember desperately wanting this game throughout most of 2009. Unfortunately I live in a country where Nintendo games are hard to find due to their lack of official presence. So you should have seen my face when I was finally able to get my hands on a copy at the end of the year. It's for that reason that this is probably my most cherished game of the series.

    As a 14ish year old I completed the full Dex for Platinum. 3 or so years ago I reset that save and 1 year ago I realized WiFi has been disabled for the games so I basically cannot complete the dex again because of Spiritomb.

    I'm debating whether or not its worth it to play through to Eterna 32x on my other DS in Pearl or Diamond to local play for Spiritomb.

    Platinum holds a special place in my heart because I didn't get a DS until 2010 and was stuck in the 3rd generation with Emerald for half a decade desperate to play the new DS games but my family wasn't doing so good so that had to wait. When I finally got my DS and Platinum with it I didn't put the game down for several months and even bred my first even Battle Frontier ready team (Garchomp, Starmie, Lucario).

    Haven't played it in a long time now, should definitely give it another run soon.

    On this day, I give thanks to my mother who went out of her way on a work day to get me, a poor 11 year old boy, a copy of the game with the Giratina figure and DS carrying case.

    I lost the figure but I still have the carrying case and I remember that day well.

    Not only my first Pokemon game, but the first game I ever owned in general and the first I beat. So many memories with this game.

    I was in a different country at the time with little access to a GameStop and I knew the base my dad was stationed at wasn’t gonna get it for a bit so my Grandpa got it and sent it over and the amount of time I spent on Platinum...

    This game is a damn good contender for Magnum Opus of the franchise (BW2 is literally its only competition)

    I remember I ordered it off ebay in 7th grade when it came out, and I came home every day for a week and a half to check the mailbox and see if it arrived. The day it arrived I was so excited. I think it must have been some B grade copy because the thing took 5 minutes to save the game everytime, and by the time I hit the endgame was completely broken and froze at the start of every encounted. Nonetheless, 7th grade me played the shit out of that game and loved it.

    Sapphire may have been my first game, but my favorite pokemon game as a kid was Platinum. I loved the designs of the pokemon, the Sinnoh region, and especially the music from this game. The sprite design was at its peak in this gen too (Gen V was just too grainy and the camera angles really showed it). Damn I'm gonna have to dig this game up now.

    Platinum was my very first pokemon game and one of the first real video games I ever played, and I played it a lot. I picked turtwig because I got a grotle in my first pack of cards, and to this day thenjubilife city theme is my favorite of all pokemon music except maybe ultra necrozma. hearing the piano cover of it in y gave me tears, and I know that the inevitable remakes will do the same. I love this game more than I can say, and all I can say is thank you to game freak for impacting me so much with this series, happy birthday giratina, heres to future remakes

    Top three alolan pokemon for me. Three good STAB options because of his ability, good bulk and an amazing attack stat to go with it. Am also a big fan if his design. His movepool is also pretty good with access to things like power whip, EQ, and rapid spin. All around i think he’s better than people give him credit for

    Dhelmise would've been one of the strongest steel types out there...if it wasn't grass/ghost. Its ability, Steelworker boosts steel type attacks by 50%, add that to its great attack, and the steel type stab (it should have gotten) and it would decimate.

    So, basically, unles sit's a competitive powerhouse no one gives a damn.

    It's Klefki's evolution, actually! The pokédex states : 'Klefkis who are abandoned by trainers at sea drown and rust under the waves. Upon death, they evolve into Dhelmise, collect weapons at the bottom of the ocean such as broken bottles and anchors, and float back on land to seek vengeance on their trainers.'

    It's Klefki's evolution, actually! The pokédex states : 'Klefkis who are abandoned by trainers at sea drown and rust under the waves. Upon death, they evolve into Dhelmise, collect weapons at the bottom of the ocean such as broken bottles and anchors, and float back on land to seek vengeance on their trainers.'
