    Viable Teams In OU Using XY Exclusive Options

    So this is probably the first time in Pokemon history that I've been inclined to raise competitive Pokemon from scratch. It's just so easy to spit out a perfect Pokemon in a couple of hours if you know what you are doing, and finding opponents through the new and improved WiFi system is easier...

    Finished Oak's Original Pokedex

    So as this thread doesn't really belong anywhere, it's been shunted to the Game Corner. It's not really a "game" and belongs in the same oddball group as YLYL, so you should probably treat it as such. General guide to thread: 1) Post stupid dex entries 2) In general that should be all...

    OU: Strategy The Most Dominant Pokemon in Competitive Gaming

    ITT we look back at previous generations and metagames, and speculate about the most absolutely, hideously, absurdly overpowered Pokemon for its environment. Pokemon who were suspect tested and later banned can count towards an OU metagame because they existed in that meta for some period of...

    Pikmin 3

    So, has anybody else picked up this game? I got around to playing it this weekend, and while I didn't get as much time with it as I'd have liked, I still managed to complete a casual run of the main story mode. I haven't yet touched the mission and bingo modes, so there's a lot that I can't...

    What Do You Think About Vegetarianism / Veganism?

    So I've been a herbivore for about 4 years now, still going strong. Occasionally I have dreams about demolishing buckets of KFC but I don't really think that counts. My reasons used to be somewhat aloof, like justifying it for ethical and ecological reasons. But to be honest, I think it more...

    Lets talk Programming!

    Recently I've had to code extensively in MATLAB for my job, and after picking up the basics and becoming more confident with the syntax I'm really starting to enjoy it. With a language, compiler and enough RAM, I have the ability to create a code that simulates pretty much anything I can think...

    Chess, the gentlemen's game. I'm awful at it. Maybe because I'm not a gentleman. But it's a lot of fun, and one day I hope to be a formidable player. I have set myself the lofty goal of consistently being able to beat the Lvl 5 computer opponent on my smartphone's Chess app. It actually goes...

    Interesting Movesets and Ideas

    Pretty much what it says in the title! If you have been having success with an unusual Pokemon or moveset, post it here.
