    The Wario Matchup Thread - Use this thread to talk about any Wario MU!

    In that case, I'd like to offer :ultsnake: as the next matchup as I have enough experience to fairly say enough on it from at least local tournaments. It's fair to say Snake actually struggles in this matchup. He's going to spend alot of time setting up grenades and traps for Wario to try to...

    Pokemon Sword and Shield Discussion Thread: Games are Finally Out! Have fun in Galar!

    Little PSA here i've seen on Twitter: If you're playing on the digital Eshop version of the game, turn autosaves off. There are reports the autosave will corrupt the game and delete your save data so you have to redownload it and it will also corrupt save files of other games on your Switch...

    A friend of mine has actually done a ton of research involving Game Freak employment. In spite of its huge revenue, employees are barely paid more than minimum wage. You could get a just as good or more profitable work anywhere else and given Japan's work policies, you can imagine overworking...

    That's certainly very strange considering the fact SM's whole PokeDex among other stuff was also leaked early due to the data dumps from the demo release. As far as I know, they still sent out review copies for SM. What's different this time around for them to change that other than their...

    https://youtu.be/QWGGtKgalDo The Official Pokemon YouTube Channel has confirmed Nature Mints that change a Pokemon's Nature, medicine items now no longer have the 100 EV cap and can max out for the 252 EV cap instead and that Pokemon of the same species can pass on Egg moves. Sure is grand...

    The Wario Matchup Thread - Use this thread to talk about any Wario MU!

    My experience on :ultpokemontrainer: is kinda limited but I'll do my best. For more general stuff, go for Chomp, UTilt, DAir or NAir if you predict a DownB to catch them with a lasting hitbox. :ultsquirtle: I've learned from watching Glutonny that Wario ACTUALLY outranges Squirtle's aerials...

    Which really wouldn't be an issue if the models had a far smaller polygon count like tons of other monster collectors that use 3v3 do.

    Yeah, they pretty much implied in the interview it is automatic and you have no control over it. I. E. You can NOT turn it off. I also find it ironic these guys didn't seem to consuder that some people ENJOY a hard game. Which really wouldn't be an issue if the models had a far smaller...

    https://www.gameinformer.com/2019/10/01/exp-share-is-baked-into-pokemon-sword-and-shield EXP Share is confirmed to remain on the whole game with no option to turn it off and all party members gain EQUAL EXP rather than the previous 50% Not only does it remove more freedom for their to be any...

    The Wario Matchup Thread - Use this thread to talk about any Wario MU!

    Now THESE are matchups I'm pretty familiar with. :ultjigglypuff: It's no exaggeration to say Jigglypuff is Wario but worse. All the options and playstyle are similar but ours are just better. Outside of specific Rest combos, BAir reads and Smash attacks, Jigglypuff can't kill Wario. FAir can...

    The Wario Matchup Thread - Use this thread to talk about any Wario MU!

    I'm in the same boat. I still have yet to have alot or really any good matchup experience against Roy, Chrom or Ike. The best I can offer is Glutonny vs Mr. R's Chrom where it appears to be pretty even despite Glutonny's overwhelming dominance. https://youtu.be/K0aAunaTD48...

    Assuming either of those Pokemon aren't cut to begin with (if not, then good) and considering the fact Stufful and Bewear have proven themselves as far more marketable (which is part of what is taken into account with the selection of Pokemon in SWSH), I have my doubts. It'd still be very nice...

    Obstagoon has helped me realize why people didn't like Incineroar's bipedal stance. I didn't care for Torracat or most Starters in general anyway and was fine with it cuz it was a newer Pokemon with a newer idea but Zigzagoon and Linoone have been around for 15 years and only NOW do they decide...

    Dude. All the reasons for the hatred have plenty of merit to them. That's kinda the whole point of the transfer system that people are paying money to use: to transfer Pokemon. There's really no good reason for Pokemon to have one in the first place when plenty of other MCRPGs have just as big...

    I don't know about the rest of you guys but that Galar Dex nonsense makes this game a hard pass for me. If I had to suffer through a mediocre Pokemon game, I'd prefer to do so with monsters I know I care about. Besides, if I wanted to try other monsters, that'd certainly be much easier to do if...
