Alright, since general-purpose instances seem to be closed these days, and smaller-focused instances are flourishing, lets make a list of good instances people on mastodon.social can move to! Places with good moderation, relatively good uptime, open (or fill out an application) and nice communities.

Lets try:

Who is it for

I want to get rid of these shadows in my National Pokedex, so I’m looking for somebody to help me touch trade the following in 🙏🏼

• Meltan :meltan:
• Melmetal :melmetal:
• Zacian :zacian:

I won’t keep any of them. I’ll trade you an Eternatus :eternatus: that I got from GTS (you can keep it at the end if you wish, just make sure to prepare one extra Pokemon for trade). Just let me know if you can help!

A few days ago, a ROM of the unreleased Pokémon Picross for the GBC was found in a Nintendo leak. As a fan of both Pokémon and Picross, naturally I’ve been playing it since a few days!

I gotta say, it’s a neat Picross game, and it features never seen before spritework that’s really charming and with really good use of the GBC’s color capabilities

I never grew out of Pokémon. If that’s a phase that’s a long one

The GSC shiny colors for Ampharos look better than later generations, imo. They look silver with purple gems and tails!

The pink/blue version is... fine (shiny Ampharos say trans rights?), but not as interesting, imo.

This is old but I just stumbled upon it again, so have some screaming magikarp

A tip for filling your pokédex when you have pokémon Home.

You may have noticed that when bringing pokémon from Home to Sword/Shield, the pokédex entry is not automatically filled. But there is a way in the game to get the entry, by leaving the pokémon at the day care and taking it back.

Here's an example with :porygon_z:​.

I think it would be really cool if the future Gen 9 region was based on China

I'm still amazed how I can just build a childhood game from source, and even modify some stuff from it super easily

What I did with this some months ago as an experiment with this was adding a "BEPIS" type in the game, a type that was resisting any other type and itself, but normal, to which it was weak to, and I made Charmander being of this type to test it, and it worked. Was a fun thing to do

This is a GitHub repository containing the source code of Pokémon Red and Blue, disassembled and refactored to human-readable (and editable!) asm.

While the code is refactored, its functionality is untouched, and the ROMs you built with this code will be identical to the one that is on US Pokémon Red or Blue cartridge.

It is a really cool and interesting project!
