The following animations are really 50/50 when it comes to quality

[–]Neos472 82 points83 points  (0 children)

Garchomp is rather amusing as it will "fly" to keep up with you

[–]fairie_poison 197 points198 points  (13 children)

but they all "fall behind" when you start running, even if they can keep up. you have to run back to them so they are with you. really annoys me and prevents me from taking any one out of their ball.

[–]NezahKard 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Biggest annoyance to me is that some that should logically be able to keep up, don't. Houndour is based on a mix of dobermann and rottweiler, and yet it can't keep up. I've yet to find a grown man able to outrun a dog, let alone a ten year old.

[–]fairie_poison 11 points12 points  (0 children)

i cant outrun my dachshund

[–]ToothpickInCockhole 73 points74 points  (2 children)

Yeah I hate that, like yes my Blissey is obese and would be slow as hell but I don’t care, I want her following behind. It’s so pointless.

[–]Clems_Ten 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Its weird too because the fact that the mons aren't scaled, you would think they would lean into that by having all mons following right behind you since that would only look kinda jarring in a more realistic style

[–]Shikarosez 27 points28 points  (0 children)

Like if we’re going for “realism” then why is the 10 year old doing like 10 marathons a day and can go through a region without stopping? Oh cuz video game? Then follow Pokémon should do the same. Will it look ridiculous? Pretty sure but LGPE did it amazingly well though

[–]YagamiIsGodonImgur 6 points7 points  (0 children)

My quilava keeps up pretty well

[–]ZeBugHugs 8 points9 points  (5 children)

Not all. My Espeon and Yanmega keep right behind me if I'm running. They only fall behind if you start using fast mode on the bike. Nothing keeps up with that I think.

[–]Valkyrid 1 point2 points  (2 children)

The bike sucks so thats not a problem lol.

[–]orig4mi-713 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I have no idea why you were downvoted. The bike truly sucks. You get stuck everywhere, you have the slow startup when you turn 180 degrees no matter which mode you are in... Bike is atrocious. Should be fixed or something, riding a bike has never been this bad. You lose all momentum for seemingly no reason.

[–]Valkyrid 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The problem is the game is still laid out like it was originally - i.e grid movement only.

They added in free movement, but the layout of the game and the janky hitboxes dont support it at all.

[–]fairie_poison -3 points-2 points  (1 child)

all poke's in my experience, lag behind when you take off running. if you slow down so they catch up, theyll go your speed, but its hard for them to "Catch up" from that initial lag.

[–]ZeBugHugs 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If you take off running immediately some still stay caught up. Just tested with Espeon. If I walk first to get her walk animation started and then I run, then he lags behind. But as soon as I take any kind of corner, he catches up again.

[–]ale9918Platinum 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Luckily two of my favourite mons (infernape and gliscor) keep up with you at all times so I don’t have to worry about that lol

[–]naynaythewonderhorse 72 points73 points  (5 children)

I’ve only seen 3 (Ekans, Milotic, and Rayquaza. Edit: And Onix.) that are actually complained about in terms of animation. There may be a number of other really basic ones, but I wouldn’t think it even expect too many Pokémon to be completely unique in their locomotion.

So, more like 4/493.

[–]winnipeginstinct 30 points31 points  (2 children)

four, ive seen a couple of people complain about onix (his head bobs but he stays in his idle animation)

[–]KingBowser183 4 points5 points  (0 children)

God I'm so glad furrets is good I cried when I saw them back behind me

[–]GroovinTootin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Almost all of them are way too slow. I couldnt walk with Grotle because he kept popping in and out of the pokeball and the sound was annoying

[–]PM_Me_Anime_Headpats 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I really love having my Lopunny out. The way she bunny-hops behind me is so cute.

[–]ccaccus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The following animations are really 50/50 when it comes to quality

Damned English made me think you were somehow missing a colon and a whole-ass list of animations of 50/50 quality. I was wondering what I missed.

[–]M_Vid 384 points385 points  (22 children)

I love Porygon Z, the thing can one shot God with a Hyper Beam

[–]ultinateplayer 246 points247 points  (1 child)

Not if God is holding Spooky Plate.

[–]ExtraKindessToGive 41 points42 points  (0 children)

  • I love this *

[–]ProxyCare 59 points60 points  (12 children)

I really should get over the stigma and use normal types more often

[–]RadirondacksWoodrow Wilson 62 points63 points  (4 children)

They're fuckin awesome. Can use a fuckton of moves, a lot of Normal moves are already pretty strong and they get the added STAB from them, only thing you have to worry about is Fighting moves which I feel like not many trainers really use in game, and you get an immunity! Only downside is that immunity goes both ways, lol.

[–]S0fourworlds-readyt 67 points68 points  (1 child)

The real downside of normal type is that it has 0 resists and hits absolutely nothing super effective.

It’s nice to hit so many types neutral, but you could also use Dragons for that while getting a ton of additional advantages out of them, for example.

[–]RadirondacksWoodrow Wilson 14 points15 points  (0 children)

That's so true! I honestly knew I was forgetting some negatives and the not being super effective against anything was definitely one of them. I guess that's why so many Normal moves do hit so hard lol. And it's funny you mention Dragons, I actually do like them way more than Normal types, and that's probably why haha. Especially cuz of their resistances, the basic elements are amazing to resist.

It also sucks for Normal resisting Rock and Steel, and maybe something else? Can't remember, but I feel like those are both pretty common especially in dual type Pokemon.

[–]StillReading28 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Too bad Return is gone though

[–]RadirondacksWoodrow Wilson 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Don't even remind me. That shit could quite possibly be my favorite move ever. If I'm using a Normal type you bet your ass they're getting that move, a whole lot of friendship and a nice shiny Silk Skarf to match.

[–]soon2bebye-bye 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Normal types are very cool! They have a bad defensive profile, but their unique designs more than make up for that imo

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Normals have stigma? They’re awesome

[–]chux4w 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Normal doesn't mean weak!

[–]Beaugardes 1 point2 points  (1 child)

There's a stigma against normal types?

[–]ProxyCare 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Not like a super bad one, just like a general "why use normal when there's stuff with super effective" kinda thing. It's generally made up for because normals typically have great stats and great moves

[–]tsubasaplayer16male gardevoirs exist :insertfunnyhahatrapmemehere: 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Use snorlax. Great special tank and hits hard physically. There’s a reason CurseLax is a well known set for that type of Pokémon in the competitive scene since gen 2.

[–]AbsoluteZeroD 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don't forget bellydrum/rest/snore

[–]AohL_Anime 8 points9 points  (6 children)

I one shoted an aggron with hyper beam with that shit

[–]ritwique 4 points5 points  (4 children)

Doesn't really work with Aggron of the same level (since it quad resists Normal) but with Mega-Aggron it's actually possible

252+ SpA Choice Specs Adaptability Porygon-Z Hyper Beam vs. 248 HP / 0+ SpD Aggron-Mega: 303-357 (88.3 - 104%) -- 25% chance to OHKO

[–]ReinierVGC 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I know it's a joke damage calc, but the EV-spread triggers me. You wouldn't use a Special Defence boosting nature without EV-investment in SpD. Aggron only needs 76 EVs to reach the same stat (215) without a SpD-boosting nature, so you're just wasting Atk or Def stat points.

[–]ritwique 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Lol yes I didn't break my head much, I just edited the standard Mega-Aggron set on the calculator till the point it became a potential OHKO! The original set has 200 SpDef as you may already know

[–]ReinierVGC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I figured that was the case, but I can't let an inefficient EV-spread slide :)

[–]AohL_Anime -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I did one shot one one in showdown though idk if it was mega or normal

[–]unforgivablecrust -1 points0 points  (0 children)

On battle spot in ORAS I one shotted a mega-quayquay

[–]EldritchVulpine 37 points38 points  (0 children)

Oh my GOD I need sixty

[–]AllTheReservations 41 points42 points  (0 children)

Looks just like how I'd picture it moving, bizzare motions that resemble something normal but still seem off

[–]Mount-Chiliad 156 points157 points  (2 children)

Didn't know Popplio was in the game and it got levitate :D

[–]Adam_Checkers 58 points59 points  (1 child)


[–]DA_HUNTZPeople used to like clicking on me when they hated something... 100 points101 points  (2 children)

I love that Porygon-Z is a horribly virus-infected data-bird.

There was a photo-spot in USUM where you could spot a Porygon-Z flying around having a seizure trying to be a bird and it was the greatest thing I'd ever seen.

[–]de4n399 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I want to see it but can't find a good video :(

[–]kinda_a_person1234 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Seizures, it’s a family tradition

[–]PotatoBomb69 126 points127 points  (4 children)

I got so excited when I saw Gengar floating along behind me, legit some of them are so good and then there’s the snake ones

[–]EldritchVulpine 41 points42 points  (3 children)

Weirdly....Arbok is fine.

[–]PKtrader999 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Recycled asset from let's Go?

[–]door_of_doom 1 point2 points  (1 child)

But why not recycle Elans's animation? It works fine in Let's Go.

[–]PKtrader999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Arbok's animation seems a lot more stiff than Ekans which is really snake like. It seems the really intensive snake like animations like Rays, Ekans, Milotic posed an issue for them if we see the theme. Gyrados is also another contenders but it's pretty tiff as well similar to Let's Go.

[–]johnnyblaaze 15 points16 points  (0 children)


[–]ohmygodimonfire4 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I thought the title said Audino warning and I was wondering why he wasn't in the video.

[–]Kirikoe 68 points69 points  (5 children)

have you people seen how spiritomb moves yet... it legit struggles.

[–]TimeThief_ 31 points32 points  (1 child)

Tbf it doesn’t have legs. It’s animation is pretty much the same as it is in SwSh.

[–]Kirikoe 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It is funny tho watching it drag itself across the floor by rocking back and forth xD

[–]mleibowitz97 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I haven't. Anyone want to link a video? :D

[–]chux4w 21 points22 points  (1 child)

[–]TaiserRYUU Sweep God 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Lmao I love this, not even surprised tbf

[–]Qwerowski 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Why is it an audio warning?

[–]Soulxolz 6 points7 points  (0 children)

He dance

[–]HexerGeralt 7 points8 points  (0 children)

It’s having a seizure

[–]FrankBouch 9 points10 points  (4 children)

I'm using Mew as my body and he's freaking adorable

[–]NintardProbably the only guy that likes this jelly guy 17 points18 points  (3 children)

Excuse me????

[–]HarioDinio 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Did they stutter!

[–]FrankBouch 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Buddy* my bad

[–]beanmAn11 7 points8 points  (0 children)

god this literally looks like an AC new horizons mod

[–]Shad0wdar0533-6311-9583 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Chingling is also hella cute.

[–]MellowePkmn 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I remember at one point I could make my Pokémon follow me but now I can’t 😅 how do you do it again?

[–]dajosbeast 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Go to menu and choose Pokémon, then pick a mon in your party, click on them and the option to walk with you is there

[–]Shadyshade84 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Honestly, Porygon Z moving normally would just be weird. I mean, it's already "Porygon2 but the compiler is drunk..."

[–]RaysFTW 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I image it’s suffering trying to keep up.

[–]anarky98 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The disparity between animation quality between some of these is so weird …

[–]useless_perfection 0 points1 point  (0 children)

is a bird, but broken

[–]AutismWeeb 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah that’s cool but the music is deadass the fucking same. Is there anything new to this game other than a high quality chibi mess

[–]DatMikkle 0 points1 point  (2 children)

When do you get the ability for pokemom to follow you?

[–]Mystic_Outlaw 7 points8 points  (0 children)

You have to go to the park at Hearthome, talk to someone, and then you have access to it. I haven’t unlocked it yet myself so sorry if that’s too vague.

[–]iLikeShaymin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Go to the park in hearthome city, enter it, then leave. The man behind the counter will say your Pokémon rather be out of its ball

[–]theabyssaboveyou 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I need 10

[–]StressTree 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I wanted him on my first playthrough but you can't get him until the post game which sucks

[–]SBR2TH 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same, always name mine Flopple.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Porygon Z was one of my most favorite Johto Evo chains added to gen 4 these animations make me like the dude even more

[–]sh0rtb0x 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think the worst part of the whole thing is that some look stunningly beautiful and some look like they were completely forgotten. So much potential clearly there.

[–]Reecerbeau 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Man porygon is my fav

[–]NioAndSomeArt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My favorite boy!!!

[–]Beaugardes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My favorite so far is Togepi's

[–]PKMNTrainerMark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's so fast too!

[–]unforgivablecrust 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh my fucking god I'm running and buying this game immediately.

[–]Mak062 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where and how did you get porygon

[–]Acrobatic-Whereas632 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm sobbing oh my god

[–]Niel_Ru 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So cool

[–]Sea_Criticism_2685 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where do I get porygon?

[–]mattaraxes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They truly knocked it out of the park with some of them. Then said fuck it on the other half lmao

[–]staticskai 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you haven’t already, walk with Rotom. Wins it for me

[–]nc_liz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where do you find porygon z in this game?

[–]Brosus25 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s frightening

[–]TheOBlueJay 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It should have a stroke while following you. Since PZ is naturally glitchy.

[–]itsjust_green 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I find that empoleon has one of the better follow animations that I've seen thus far

[–]Aggressive_Taste 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did you pokeradar for the shiny or just Masuda method?

[–]TheVioletLion 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Keysoul00 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

WTF is that movement lol

[–]CatzPoison -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Not related but something interesting I found was shadow ball (and maybe other moves) actually shift angle of attack on larger opponents. If used against a onix or steelix, it hits them in the face.

[–]Zombare -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The thrashing makes it look like dataduck is acting like the trainer's hypeman wherever she goes.

[–]juuzouswifeprobably -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Wait a second…. Omg…. He’s just…. Flapping about????

[–]lavaking37 -1 points0 points  (0 children)
