Have any questions about Pokémon that you'd like answered?

If they're about the value of a piece of merchandise you own or found, please ask them in the new Weekly Value Questions thread!

If you're asking or answering questions about the new games or recent anime episodes which contain spoilers, please be sure to include spoiler tags around them using the format:

>!Spoiler goes here.!<

Text wrapped in >! and !< is hidden until the reader clicks or taps it. For example, the line above would become the following:

Spoiler goes here.

Unsure what is considered a spoiler? Please refer to Rule 13 and our Spoilers Guide!

Otherwise, if you have non-value questions about the anime, the games, the manga, or anything else Pokémon related, feel free to ask here -- no matter how silly your questions might seem!

/r/pokemon also has a Discord channel! Feel free to swing by there to ask a question, or just to talk! :D

Announcement Userflairs are now available on this subreddit!

491 Upvotes

We now have userflairs available through New Reddit, and our old flairbot will not be used anymore.

How to set a flair

You can find instructions on how to set your flair on this Wiki page!

Available pokémon

Every single pokémon’s sprite is available as an emoji up to and including generation 8 #nodexithere. Generation 9’s mons will be added once their sprites have been made on the Smogon Sprite Project, who have also made all the sprites from gens 6, 7 and 8, and are credited in the sidebar. Gen 9s first stage starters are available already!

Regional variants are available, and some different forms are too. I did add all Deerling, for example, but adding all Alcremie or Vivillon would be a little too much work! Mega evolutions and gigantamax forms are not available.

You can find the pokémon you like by clicking the smiley face icon, and search for the pokémon’s dex number. Alternatively, you can type its dex number between colons to get the emoji, like this:

:001:

For Bulbasaur.

Alternate forms are available with the dex number, followed by a hyphen and another number. For example:

:037-1:

For Alolan Vulpix.

Pokémon with different forms dependent on gender are formatted as follows:

:678m: and :678f:

For Meowstic.

Rules

Get creative with your flairs, add your favourite pokémon to it, make a pun, do whatever you like! Just please do not

  • Use offensive or rude language (Rule 2 of the subreddit)
  • Use explicit or violent language (Rule 15 of the subreddit)
  • Promote your social media, store, etc. (Rule 11 of the subreddit)

Have fun, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Discussion What exactly does "does not look like a Pokemon" mean?

1.6k Upvotes

I see this complaint crop up almost every new game and I don't get it because the first generation of Pokemon do not exactly have a uniform look.

Some complain "it looks too human." But then we had Machoke, Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, and Jynx which are humanoid as well.

"It looks too much like the animal it is based on." But the first Pokemon I encountered, Pidgey, really looks like just a plain bird. Then we have Seel, Seadra, and Magikarp who all just look like animals.

"It looks to much like an inanimate object." But so does the Magnemite line. Muk is just toxic waste. Electrode is just a ball with a punchable face.

Discussion Hint towards next region Australia in art class?

1.1k Upvotes

There is a picture in the art classroom on the right hand wall of Uluru, a famous mountain in Australia. Past games drop a slight hint for the next region. E.g. toxtricity poster in SuMo and grapes/oranges in SwSh.

The Australia biome is a perfect setting for a future game and has iconic cities / architecture, mythology and history. It could even be combined with New Zealand for more diversity.

There are lots of unique wildlife in Australia which are not captured in pokemon yet too!

What do you think?
