PostSubject: Technical Machines   Sat Oct 11, 2014 12:43 am

Technical Machines are small devices that are used to transfer energy stored as data from the device directly to a Pokémon, enabling them to expand their move pool. As technology has progressed, the methods of transferring the stored energy has evolved. Originally Technical Machines were one used devices: once the data was tranferred to the Pokémon, the Technical Machine would no longer have access to that data and be unusable. Now, however, technology has progressed to the point where Technical Machines retain the stored energy and can be used multiple times.

Technical Machines do, however, have a variety of limitations. The most prominent limitation is that not every Pokémon is capable of utilizing Technical Machines. While there are a few Technical Machines that can be learned by almost every known Pokémon, there are some Pokémon that cannot utilize any Technical Machines and most Pokémon are only capable of utilizing a dozen or two. The second limitation is cost. Despite the advancement of technology, Technical Machines are still quite expensive to manufacture, especially for Technical Machines that contain stronger energies. Some Technical Machines are quite common, found in various department stores or given to victorious trainers at Gyms and Contest Halls, but many of the more sought after Technical Machines remain elusive, even at championship level competition.

There are currently six series of Technical Machines, with only Series Six being currently in production. The previous five series are obsolete, although the devices themselves can still be used. However, as Technical Machines prior to Series Five were single-use, it is uncommon to find a trainer with a Pokémon that has used one, and quite rare to find a working device.

Series One Technical Machines
The Series One Technical Machines were released on February 27, 1996 by Silph Co. in the Kanto region. Totaling fifty devices, these Technical Machines were three and a half inch diskettes that could be inserted into a trainer's Pokédex or into a Pokémon Computer. The Pokédex or computer would then transfer the energy from the diskette directly into the chosen Poké Ball. Following the transfer of energy, the diskette would become useless, not even able to have any type of data written on it again.

The Series One stopped being manufactured after 1,363 days.

Series Two Technical Machines
Released on November 21, 1999, the Series Two Technical Machines were not very different from the Series One. However, many of the energies that were present in the Series One would not be found in the Series Two. The second series kept the number of distinct devices at fifty, but added many different energies to replace those that were not retained from the Series One. The Series Two Technical Machines remained a three and a half inch diskette, and were used the same way as the Series One.

The Series Two lasted 1,096 days.

Series Three Technical Machines
The third series was released on November 21, 2002 as a combined effort of Silph Co. and Devon Corp. While the number of devices remained at fifty, the energies contained within were almost completely overhauled. Most of the previous energies were dropped in favor of many new and more powerful energies. The combined involvement of two different companies also made it easier for many trainers in different regions to have access to the Technical Machines, although they still remained expensive.

The Series Three drastically changed the appearance of the Technical Machine as well. Where the previous installments were a simple disc, the Series Three was a small cube that would open slightly to allow a Poké Ball to be inserted. Once closed, the Technical Machine would attach to the Poké Ball and transfer the energy, breaking apart once the energy was transferred and being rendered unusable.

The Series Three would have a lifespan of 1,407 days.

Series Four Technical Machine
The Series Four, released on September 28, 2006, saw the most involved overhaul of the Technical Machine system yet. The number of devices was nearly doubled, expanding from fifty to ninety-two, and saw the return of some energies that had been present in earlier installments but absent in following installments. While the cost of Technical Machines did not decrease, they did become slightly cheaper to manufacturing, resulting in them being more easily available to trainers that could afford them.

The Series Four also saw another drastic change in the design of Technical Machines. They returned to the form of a diskette, although a compact disc instead of a floppy, and were utilized much the way Series One and Series Two had been. The bulk of the previous installment's devices had not been well received and this change was met with quite a positive reception.

The Series Four was discontinued after 1,451 days.

Series Five Technical Machines
The most positive and popular change to the Technical Machine came with the introduction of Series Five on September 18, 2010. Whereas previously a trainer could only use a Technical Machine one a single Pokémon before the energy contained within the Technical Machine was no longer available, technological advancements allowed for Series Five (and later installments) to be used a potentially unlimited number of times. The number of devices themselves was increased from ninety-two to ninety-five, but this installment did not see too many noticeable changes in the energies contained within the different devices.

The Series Five once again saw an appearance change. The Series Five Technical Machine would be contained on a USB drive that could connect to a Pokédex or other device and transfer the energy to a Poké Ball. It is because of this technology that Technical Machines were able to become multiple use devices.

The Series Five would last 1,120 days.

Series Six Technical Machine
Released on October 12, 2013, the Series Six Technical Machine saw the number of devices increase to one hundred, the introduction of a few new energies, but not much else. The devices themselves remained the same, utilizing a USB port and flash drive, and remained multiple use. One important thing to note, however, is that unlike the Series Five, multiple energies can be stored on the same device, eliminating the need for trainers to carry multiple devices.

The Series Six is still currently in production.
