What do you think of dark-type Pokémon: Design-wise, I think dark-type Pokémon are pretty awesome!
Your partners: Tyranitar and Sableye.
What types rule: Dark-types. :)

It's been recently announced that the Fairy-type is super effective against Dark types while Steel loses it's resistances against Dark and Ghost. What are your thoughts on all of the recent news? How do you think it will affect the Dark type competitively? Will it improve it or make it worse?
In my opinion, fairy-type represents good and dark-type represents evil. Since good always win over evil at the end, it makes perfect sense to me to have fairy-type Pokémon be super-effective to dark-types. Dark Pokémon aren't used very often due to their weakness to fighting (one of the most common types in competitive battling), but this could make their usage even lower. They are neutral to steel-types now, but I honestly don't see how that would be able to help much, since there are already plenty of other Pokémon types out there that could take down steel.

The only dark-type Pokémon that would be able to keep its usage relatively the same is Zoroark, since its ability enables it to disguise itself as another Pokémon and trick the opponent. Tyranitar's usage could remain the same, too, maybe, since it's one of the very few Pokémon that has access to Sand Stream. d:

    LOL What if a Fairy-type fan club is founded and then suddenly we start rivalries between which is the better type an I'll be the type who gets pissed of by all their statements and starts a fight with them. XD

    Hopefully that won't happen, especially with me getting very aggressive, since my current mood is getting very gloomy towards Dark-type's eventual downfall. Maybe I'll lighten to the type as soon as I get to us a few of them.

      What do you think of Dark-Type Pokemon: Ever since the release in G/S/C I have been a fan of them and always tend to try and have one on my team cause of their resistance for psychic and ghost. And with certain dual-typings, makes for better resistances.
      Your partners: Drapion
      What Types rule: Dark Types Rule!
      Answer the current topic: The fact they are now weak to Fairy-type makes sense. And Steel losing resistance to Dark and Ghost will shake things up both Competitive and casual-playwise. Competitive because it will cause everyone to rethink their team as well as their strategy and won't have all the same 1 Pokemon who makes the entire team. Casual because simply the fact you have to switch up your team.

        My bad for not checking in to this club often. :( So sorry. Welcome all of you either way.

        We're definitely in need of a new topic:

        With Pokemon X and Y's release date only lass than 2 weeks away, do you see anymore new Dark types being revealed anytime soon? How about a Dark-type specialist?




        By soon I mean before the games release date. Anything could happen I think. Though the only new Dark type Pokemon I see being revealed would be an evolution of a already announced Pokemon , not a new species all together. They seem to be only revealing evolutions at this point. We supposed to be getting new Pokemon news during the showing of Pokemon Origins set to premiere in Japan on Wednesday morning (or October 2nd) so who knows. If the leaks about Chespin's final evo being Grass/Dark are true, then we could also see them reveal that with the final starter at the last minute. Dark type specialist I doubt less but it could still be possible. We haven't even seen the region's Champion or Elite Four yet.

          Sorry it's been so long since I've spoken up here! I took a long break, besides talking to AW a bit. As for the new topic, I have no idea. I've been doing my best to avoid any spoilers, but I'm sure they will do a few small pokemon announcements. Including some dark types :3

            Wow, considering we just opened a new topic AND XY just came out, there's a lot of inactivity here huh? Hope this club doesn't die...

            But anyway, to answer our current topic, a Dark specialist would be really cool. looking at the badge names, I think we can be fairly sure it's not a gym... (Bug, Cliff, Rumble, Plant, Voltage, Fairy, Psychic, and Iceberg) but we can conclude they're running out of ideas.

            Haven't heard anything about the elite four yet.

            Well, since XY is already out, I think we need a new topic.

            IF YOU HAD TO CREATE AN OFFENSIVE MOVESET FOR UMBREON, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

            Ignoring natures, stats and EV training, what do you think would be a good in-game moveset for Umbreon.

            This topic came to me because I just started Soulsilver and I want an offensive umbreon. This is probably a great challenge since umbreon is mostly a wall or annoyer.

            Well, this should be interesting. Hope this club isn't dying!

              Inkay and its evolved form Malamar are pretty cool. Dark/Psychic combo. 4x weak to Bug but good against Ghost, Poison, Fighting, etc.

              Uggh I'm sorry guys. :( Just so you guys know I haven't gotten X and Y yet so I don't want much spoilers on the game, but I know there wasn't much new Dark types this time around, but we do got the first Dark type starter, Greninja whose's Water/Dark!!

              IF YOU HAD TO CREATE AN OFFENSIVE MOVESET FOR UMBREON, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
              I'm not a competitive type but I'll give it a go.

              Dark Pulse- One of the best Dark type moves imo. Good power, 100% accuracy , and a 20% chance of flinching the opponent.
              Payback - While it only does 50 damage, it's double to 100 if Umbreon is hit first. It doesn't have the best Speed so it would likely be hit first often.
              Psychic/Toxic - Psychic is a good counter over Ghost types besides Payback and Dark pulse of course. Toxic obviously cause it badly poisons the opponent and it's 90% accurate.
              Return- You need to max out it's happiness to evolve it anyway so at this point Return is probably gonna be really powerful.

              Just my take. *shrugs*

                Umbreon moveset? I'd say Dark Pulse, Moonlight, Assurance and Faint Attack. I can't tell you why I picked those though other than I think it fits a Dark-type like him well.

                  I've been out for some time, college immersion XD.
                  Answering current topic, well, a defensive/supporter moveset suit perfect to Umbreon, but my offensive moveset would be: Psychic, HP (Fire), Payback, Work Up.
                  Just a focus on its weaknesses. Work Up raise attacks and special attacks, good to complete its already nice defenses; Psychic to cover
                  fighting types; HP Fire to deal decent damage on bug and steel type pokes; Payback has stab and deals double when your opponent hit you in the same turn.
                  A different way to use the umbra bunny XD

                  BUMP!!

                  Could really need a new topic here. And to update the list of members.... ._.

                  Anyway.

                  Out of the new Dark types we got in Gen VI, which one is your favorite and why?

                    Wow this club was meant for me. My username when translated literally means 'Thief of the night', and Dark-types have always been my favourite, so.

                    Username: Thief Noctis
                    What do you think of Dark-Type Pokemon: You can probably take a guess considering I'm filling in this form to join a Dark-type club.
                    Your partners: Shiny Mightyena (my first ever Shiny in Emerald) and regular Mightyena if possible. If not, then just Mightyena and Umbreon.
                    What Types rule: Dark types ofc.

                    I don't have X or Y yet, but I really, really, really like Pangoro. It looks really badass and it's based off a panda, and I love pandas. I really like what they did with the evolution, of needing a dark type in your party.

                        Yveltal definitely. It's stats are beast, plus with a signature move that can heal more than half the damage it deals, it would be scary to face on. I haven't used the others but I can see Malamar with much use thanks to it's reverse abilities.

                        I love Inkay and Malamar. The Dark/Psychic typing is an interesting combination and its design may not look the part but I love the whole concept with these two. I've heard that Malamar seems to be making quite an impact on competitive play thanks to access to moves like Superpower (great Contrary abuse there) and Topsy-Turvy to screw set-ups. One of my fave new Pokemon this gen for sure!

                        Oh, and welcome aboard DarkPoke001 and Thief Noctis! Glad to see your love for Dark Pokemon.

                          Yveltal. I was ecstatic when I realised I could finally have a signature legendary of my type that wasn't Darkrai. Darkrai's cool and all but I'm not exactly a massive fan of it. Yveltal is wonderful though.

                          I do like Greninja (Dark-type starter, finally <3) but it's a shame its regular form isn't switched with its Shiny form. Its Shiny would've been far more fitting for a Dark type and I love it. Thankfully I found a Shiny Frogadier in a Friend Safari the other day.

                          What do you think of Dark-Type Pokemon: You can probably take a guess considering I'm filling in this form to join a Dark-type club.
                          Your partners: Shiny Mightyena (my first ever Shiny in Emerald) and regular Mightyena if possible. If not, then just Mightyena and Umbreon.
                          What Types rule: Dark types ofc.
                          Well that's really interesting!! Welcome to the club! I have no problem that. Never done that before though.

                          What Types rule: Dark types rule!
                          Answer the current topic: it's got to be Yveltal, a giant clawed terror-inducing monster :)
                          Welcome!!

                          If I have to answer the topic myself.....

                          I'm tied between Pangoro and Yveltal honestly. YVeltal is why I'm picking Y just cause of how much cooler it looks over Xerneas in my opinion.And it's signature move sounds amazing from what I'm guessing by what Mithel said about it. When Pangoro was revealed to be Pancham's evolution, it really took me by surprised cause of how beastly it looks. Definitely the coolest of the bear Pokemon we've gotten so far.

                            Uff, this is a good and difficult question. I really like Pangoro, Yveltal and Greninja, I'm in love with their concept. Pangoro looks like this guy that always wanted to be a "bad guy" and it finally did it counting with a nice typology (I don't care of what can do the fairies) Yveltal is just awesome. A powerful force that subtract the other's energy ands emits a dark aura (also its ability) that everyone get depressed when it is near. Theses pokes are just cool, but my favorite is Greninja. It's the fastest of the water type pokes, can be used with a mixed set with no problem, the entire family show ninja skills from the very beginning, has a smooth design transition, and, my favorite one, has a plan design. The design take everything that a frog can offer to match the ninja concept without entering into the obvious things. Starting from the legs, body, scarf-like tongue and head's sharpness. It's just perfect <3

                            It's gotta be Greninja, definitely. It looks very ninja-like in terms of design, which was their aim. And I really like how they made its tongue wrap around its neck like a scarf—it's quite creative. Greninja may look a little similar to Toxicroak, but that's all right. Many animals look alike in real life, so why not Pokémon? Pokémon are animals, too, but with superpowers. When it comes to battling, Greninja performs extremely well. It has gargantuan Speed; it could outrun almost any Pokémon that it goes up against. It has a decent Special Attack, too. Its base Sp. Att stat is one-o-three, which isn't very bad. With that kind of strength, it could knock out anyone within only two to three turns. At the moment, I have a Greninja on my team in Pokémon Y; I absolutely love using it.

                            Along with Greninja, I also like Yveltal. Every time I see this Pokémon, I immediately get reminded of Lugia. Its shape, size, body structure, etc. etc. all look pretty much the same as this particular Pokémon. d: I wonder if these two are related, somehow? Only difference is that Yveltal's got a different color scheme, which is black and red. Interestingly, red and black are the exact opposite of Lugia's colors—white and blue!

                              Welcome AwesomeRob!

                              We need a new topic stat!

                              Pokemon X and Y introduced the concept of Mega Evolution . 4 of the Mega Evolutions introduced are Dark types (3 which were already Dark before and one that gains a Dark typing when Mega Evolving). These Pokemon are Mega Absol, Mega Tyranitar, Mega Gyarados, and Mega Houndoom. Out of these four, which of the Dark type Mega Evolution is your favorite? Which one do you think is best battle wise?



                              My favorite Mega is definitely Mega Houndoom. It's so much cooler looking design wise than Houndoom's original form and just looks much more menacing.I love the cuff links on it. Though I kind of which it was a normal evolution instead, I can still live with this. I really can't say how well it is in battle since I haven't played either X or Y yet, but looking at it's stats on Bulbapedia it looks like it's one of the best ones. Runner up to Houndoom is Mega Absol cause I love the design of the wings and hair. Absol was already one of my favorite Pokemon/ Dark types and it's Mega evolution makes it much more powerful and makes me love Absol even more!

                                Because I was gone from PC for a while, I'd like to rejoin this club if you don't mind :x

                                What do you think of Dark-Type Pokemon: I like the fact that they are immune to Psychic types. Immunity to a specific type is great.
                                Your partners: Question, can I say Tyranitar(Godzilla) AND Mega Tyranitar(Mega Godzilla)? If not, then Hydreigon(Darkzilla) as my 2nd choice plz

                                Okay, I'm going to be thorough here.

                                Mega Absol is fast, strong & has one of the best abilities of Magic Bounce, which is very useful when playing against heavy stall/entry hazard users. I don't mind the design, so its just another cool looking Pokemon to me.

                                Mega Gyarados, *sigh* I would honestly say would be much cooler as a Water/Dragon type to be honest. & Mold Breaker, really? Gyarados is much cooler being regular with the Intimidate/Moxie abilities. Don't know much other than the sprite in terms of design, looks sick, but in battle it doesn't impress me. Least favorite among the four, and the worst of the four.

                                Mega Houndoom looks like the Devil's Dog. Have to admit, looks cool. I actually ignore this Pokemon, so it doesn't grab my attention much.

                                Mega Tyranitar! We have a WINNER! Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding! I love Sandstream users, and Mega Tyranitar is definitely my #1 favorite Mega Dark type! He is SUPER bulky and powerful. What don't you like about him? His design is pretty sick also! I'd have to say he is also the bets to user battle-wise, because of his bulk and strength. Mega Absol comes in 2nd behind this bad boy right here.

                                  I quite like them all, but Mega Gyarados is my pick. I am shocked that his Mega is Water/Dark instead of Water/Dragon, but he is still badass.

                                  By the way, start your evening with this Dark creature:
