    You read my post wrong. I meant why it wasn't 151Mew.jpg.
    Because the template names are different from the names they use for the final image. The webpage is built beforehand and looks for specific filenames, so the resulting files are given those names to avoid having to rewrite the page's code.

    It's a pretty common practice when it comes to largely template-based ecosystems.

    Edited:

    Also, oh my GOD Drought Ninetales with Solarbeam is ridiculous. I'm really regretting skipping the TM until now, 120 damage one-turn 100% accuracy grass lasers are nothing to sneeze at.

    Mine has IVs in Speed and Special Attack with a Timid (+Spd -Atk) nature as well, so even at a type disadvantage against Ground, Rock or Water I'd probably still win by being faster.

    Stored Power Opinions?

    Every stat boost ups base power by 20. Calm Mind ups 2 stats at once. Do the math.
    I was apprehensive at first due to the amount of time needed to set up compared to more powerful moves (ie: Psychic, Psyshock) , but I tried it on my Gardevoir and it works really well if you can get Calm Mind off a couple times or Baton Pass some stats.

    I personally Baton Pass a couple Quiver Dances to Gardevoir, and can then sweep unranked online teams if they aren't prepared with a physical priority move. It could definitely be used pretty easily in-game as well.

    It's funny. The kimono girls in the Battle Chateau, their Audino always seem to use Simple Beam against you in scenarios where that would immensely help you, such as against a SwordsDance Zangoose.

    "Oh hey thanks, now I need one less turn to sweep you."

    So, what do you guys think, does a Steam group sound beneficial?
    for yes
    for no
    no

    we already tried a steam group in the past and nobody used it. it's just not necessary when we have this thread

    Uh... how come Goomy learns so few Water-type moves? And it learns Muddy Water but NOT Surf? Nor Scald? It's a water-loving slime, come on.

    It's the same as Tyrantrum not getting Outrage and learning Horn Drill... despite having no horns.

    What kind of sorcery is this?

    My friend challenged me to make a team based around a Pokemon I would random.

    I randomed Wailord.
    Wailord is one of the most underrated threats in the UU metagame. At a glance, it seems to have lackluster base defenses, even with its enormous base 170 HP, and only passable base offenses, which are further hindered by Wailord’s low base Speed stat of 60. However, if you take a closer look, it becomes clear that Wailord does actually have a niche in the UU metagame; its access to Water Spout, a powerful 150 Base Power move that is dependent on the user's HP at the time of use, allows Wailord to act as a destructive special attacker. By simply spamming Water Spout, Wailord can become a dangerous offensive threat to any team not prepared for it.
    So basically Perfect HP and Sp.Atk IVs (Preferably go for perfect everything if you can), Choice Specs/Scarf and 252 HP/252 Sp.Atk/6 X EV spread, and spam the hell out of Water Spout.

    Run a Tank/Stall with Rain Dance, Baton pass and Calm Mind, Spam Calm Mind and Run a Rain Dance, then Batonpass to Wailord after you set up. Spam Water Spout until either you wipe the enemy team, or Wailord KO's.
    Carry a type coverage Pokémon that can take out water counters(which will almost always be an electric type), like Gliscor with a Toxic Orb and Poison Heal

    Lilligant can learn Flash, but is incapable of learning Dazzling Gleam.

    If you can't see why exactly I find this stupid, allow me to quote both move descriptions.
    Flash posted:
    The user flashes a bright light that cuts the target's accuracy. It can also be used to illuminate caves.
    Dazzling Gleam posted:
    The user damages opposing Pokémon by emitting a powerful flash.
    These are essentially the exact same thing according to their descriptions, and it would be nice if my Lilligant could learn a damaging move that wasn't fucking grass.

    Meanwhile, Whimsicott, its version counterpart, gets a new typing of Grass/Fairy and is running around in the Battle Maison moonblasting my Flygon to death.

    Because of Lilligant not being capable of anything but grass moves, it is incredibly hard for me to find a reason to actually use it. Sure it's powerful, but it doesn't mean anything when Grass is NFE against all these fucking types.

    Nope, breed it with Azumarill.

    Absol also gets it, but it makes a slighty bit of more sense (and Dark/Fairy makes for excellent coverage).

    Still, Fairy fails HARD at the Dragon countering deal because nobody gets strong Fairy moves. It resisting Bug was unneeded (seriously, Bug and Grass are resisted by SEVEN FUCKING TYPES), and it resisting Dark and being SE against it wasn't really balanced, GHOST was the type that needed a new weakness and a new resistor.

    Wow, poor Lilly. I really hate when counterpart pokemon end up unequal, and it happens way too often. She gets Quiver Dance, yes, but if the only attack you can use that is not Grass-type is Hidden Power we have a problem.

    Making Fairy and Dark being weak against each other would've been cool, also that would've made Steel losing its Ghost and Dark resistances unnecesary

    Meganium and Typhlosion were found here. I have no context for the other three, I wish I did.

    That page also contains many more images of currently unobtainable (but NOT spoiler) pokemon, including Regice, the Lati duo, and Cobalion.

    To be fair though, Steel resisting Ghost didn't make a whole lot of sense. Last I checked ghosts went through things regardless of their hardness or shininess.

    Also, on the topic of unequal conterparts:

    -Weepinbell needed a split evolution; Carnivine would had been PERFECT for that.

    -Rhyhorn has Gravelerish stats and looks similar to evolved Pokemon such as Nidorino or Lairon. Rhydon has Golemish stats and looks similar to fully evolved Pokemon such as Nidoking or Aggron. An early-game preevo would have given more to the line than an evo which basically gives +10 in everything but speed, and permanently downgrades Rhydon's design (as a mega it would be fine).

    -Jynx, well, it is an odd case. Closer to Mr.Mime than to Magmar and Electabuzz in terms of design, stats and method of capturing in RGBY; also, both it and Mr.Mime would have benefited more from an evolution than Magmar and Electabuzz (a 455 BST Pokemon could evolve just fine, a 495 one, well, would you evolve ALAKAZAM?). Still, Mr.Mime got a baby, so this one is stable.

    -Rather than evolving Pinsir, Scyther shouldn't have gotten an evo. It should have gotten a preevo, and said preevo would have a branched evolution, Scizor being an alternative one. And of course, Pinsir should have gotten a preevo to share with Heracross. Having a 500 BST in Little Cup is enough.

    -Sneasel had to be a version exclusive back in GSC, mirroring Gligar, and not gimmicky Delibird. Oh well, now it is fixed.

    -Skarmory would enjoy a baby now that Mantyke exists.

    -Sableye didn't get a Mega. And it could evolve in the future, while Mawile will never evolve now.

    -Dusclops got an evo, fairly wasted, but an evo. Banette has the same BST, but now will NEVER get an evo. Has a mega, but, Dusclops has an evo.

    -Milotic has no Mega.

    -Lilligant is now the only 480 BST, version exclusive, stone-evolving Grass type to be a pure Grass. It'd enjoy being a Grass/Fairy, to be honest.


    And then, there's the whole deal with starter megas (fuck Charizard), pseudo legend megas, legend megas (fuck Mewtwo), etc...
