Well, I like the Electrode one ;D

And the Slowpoke is pretty cool. They should make one for Hypno.

As for favorite Pokemon overall.... I'd probably be able to narrow it down to one or two for each type...except Normal. Love all normal types pretty much.
Normal - see previous statement
Fire - Vulpix
Water - Slowpoke
Grass - Chikorita/Bulbasaur/Leafeon
Electric - Minun/Ampharos
Ice - Eh, probably Lapras or Jynx
Fighting - Hitmonchan
Poison - Muk
Ground - Hippopotas
Flying - Honchkrow
Psychic - All of them
Bug - Shuckle
Rock - Omastar
Ghost - Misdreavus/Dusknoir
Dragon - Salamence
Dark - Umbreon/Cacturne

I want a Poliwhirl one. 
And animefreak's the exact same as animecrazy, right?
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 19, 2010, 06:45:28 PM
they have a poliwhirl one... i believe, either that or poliwrath

and yes, animefreak is a little anime-freaky!
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on July 19, 2010, 07:32:43 PM
Yeah, they have a Poliwrath one. You can see which one it is because of its eyes.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 19, 2010, 07:33:25 PM
I like Poliwhirl better than Poliwrath lookwise.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on July 19, 2010, 07:34:24 PM
Same here. I like the way Poliwrath looks, but Poliwhirl is just better imho.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 19, 2010, 07:34:45 PM
Yeah. Poliwrath's eyes are too small and Hypno-ish.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 19, 2010, 07:36:40 PM
Yep... i never really evolve Poliwhirl into Poliwrath, only sometimes. Poliwhirl can be pretty cool/powerful when I want it to be!
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 19, 2010, 07:37:19 PM
I prefer Politoed! :D
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on July 19, 2010, 07:42:19 PM
I don't like Politoed. I don't know, he kinda looks retarded. x)
Title: Re: General Pokémon

I like how its cry controls Poliwag.  :O
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 19, 2010, 07:45:31 PM
That's why Poliwhirl is the best bet... though as I said, I sometimes use Poliwrath for certain things

Politoed was just bad overall
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 19, 2010, 07:46:06 PM
I like Poliwrath for a team. Poliwhirl looks cool though.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 19, 2010, 07:51:23 PM
I sometimes do... i usually use Blastoise for a water Pokémon, or Lapras if im going for the mix
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 19, 2010, 07:53:28 PM
In gen III, I use Ludicolo or a lowlevel tentacruel with Surf, Waterfall, Dive, and Cut.

Gen I, I use Lapras or Blastoise, if anything.

Gen IV, I use an assortment of water-types.

Gen II... haven't been through it enough times to say.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on July 19, 2010, 07:55:46 PM
I usually go for a Poliwrath, or sometimes Poliwhirl when I don't feel like evolving it.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 19, 2010, 08:10:29 PM
Ive always hated Tentacool/Tentacruel... never my favorites (though they can make some cool hats)

But, its all meh to me right now... In Gen III, i used swampert for surf and then other water pokémon for dive and waterfall

Hey! Politoed is a happy frog! Overworld-wise, that makes him a million times better than grumpy Poliwrath. Though, when it comes to professional battling, his best spot is on the side line, waving a small flag and cheering (oh, can't get that image out of my head).

Also, stick Swords Dance to a Tentacruel and run amok with Waterfall and Poison Jab and whatnot. Or a defensive/supportive Toxic Spikes/Rapid Spin set.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Cobraroll on July 24, 2010, 09:06:00 PM
Sorry for double posting, but I'm feeling nostalgic today. Also, I have little to do (well, I guess I should work with Emergence, but don't worry, I do that too).

Tonight, I want to talk about a Pokémon that has kept a special place in my heart ever since I first heard about the franchise. A Pokémon that was widely feared in the beginning of the saga, both game- and anime-wise. If you ever were to walk around in a Pokémon forest, this was the number one Pokémon to look out for. It still is. Ferocious, inhuman, semi-lethal (as far as I understand it, wounds caused by Pokémon will heal themselves, so they can't kill. However, the target will be knocked out for a long time, depending on the force of the attack. Read Emergence for further explaination), and totally badass. Except that in the games, it was a bad ass at best. It had limited value in terms of practically everything, learnt few moves and was both offensively, defensively and supportively one of the worst fully-evolved Pokémon in the games.

Tonight, I'll dedicate a speech to Beedrill.

By looks alone, Beedrill is one of the most awesome Pokémon in existence, hands down. Scizor might be the "ultimate bug" of today, but before Scizor, Beedrill owned the fear sections of our brains. A wasp or bee, ranging from half a metre in size to bigger than a full-grown man, with knife-sharp stingers on each hand and a particularly nasty toxic spike on its abdomen. Large wings so it appears bigger. And to complete it all, the eyes. Red, large, inhuman. Coldly calculating, like camera lenses or motion sensors. Yet worse, they hunt in swarms. Many of the hardcore fans from the early days, when 150 Pokémon seemed like a vast number, can attest that one of their childhood fears was a Beedrill attack. How many of us didn't walk around in forests in our dreams, when suddenly a sound like a chainsaw roared from the sky, and a swarm of man-sized bees dropped from above? Scyther might have been a cold-blooded ninja, and Venomoth might have been creepy as hell (look at those eyes), but nobody could match a Beedrill. Not even Scizor or Heracross could match a swarm of them.

But GameFreak, despite giving this adorable little hell-bug the looks which gained so much fame, decided that its main selling point would be aquisition as early as lvl 10. Thus, it couldn't be too powerful, or the game would be too easy. In the early days, Beedrill never got any better moves than Pin Missile (Base Power 28) by levelling up, and while some of us wasted a TM 15 on it, the strongest move we gave it with other means was usually Cut. Generation II was not nicer with it. It got Pursuit (did I mention that Beedrill would follow you for kilometres on end if you disturbed it, a distance it would comfortably cover in a couple of minutes?) as its new strongest move, and some game designer gave it Sludge Bomb as a TM move, presumably out of sheer sympathy. Still, Beedrill's movepool was abysmal at best. Its only selling point was mediocre Swords Dance sets, built from TMs that could be used way better on other Pokémon. The addition of Steel types made it an even worse attacker. Those days, I bet Game Beedrill cried itself to sleep, dreaming about the respect it was given in the Animé. Even Ariados was a more viable option than it, thanks to Spider Web, and Ariados itself was but a bleak copy of our hero bee.
Then Generation III came along. Beedrill got the meagre Endeavour, and an ability you saw a-plenty with all the other bugs. It had a comparatively shallower movepool than ever, and was even outclassed by Raticate. It enjoyed the respect of Seaking, Ledian and Luvdisc, and even Magnemite could beat it without breaking a spark (Magnemite don't sweat, do they?). In competitive play, Forretress annoyed its opponents to tears, Ninjask outspeeded everything, and Scizor was more memorable to new fans than the half-useless Beedrill. I had almost given it up myself, I was at the point of refusing to catch it so I wouldn't have to face reality, and live with the memories instead. We all remembered Beedrill as awesome, but upon inspection, it really wasn't at all.

So, on the doorstep to a new generation, where is Beedrill today? In the shadow of almost every other Bug type, long since forgotten, and barely seen used in the remakes of the classic games. Beedrill is a ghost of nostalgia, well-known from way back then, but not even used by the Pokémon marketing team any more. From Generation I, there was Pikachu, Mewtwo, Meowth, the starters and Beedrill we remembered. Two still haunt the Animé, one got a movie and a special episode dedicated to it, nine enjoy eternal fame, while Beedrill sobs in the shade of Grumpig, Furret and Skuntank. It shares its destiny with a lot of bug brethren, but Beedrill is the veteran. Ariados, Mothim, Ledian, Volbeat; they are all newcomers. Before they were even thought of, Beedrill soared on silver wings through the woods. This once-so-mighty bee, a source of inspiration for a ton of new Bug Pokémon, deserved a better fate than this. However, it has one ace up its sleeve. And mind you, it has to pull those stingers through its sleeves, so the sleeve is big:

Lo and behold (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36VRrTkTe2s)

X-scizzor was the move Beedrill needed to rise up. A generation ago, it got an ability which boosted... Twineedle (now buffed to 50 Base Power. Bubblebeam is 60, do the math). Thank you, Game Freak. Now, let's see what it can do with X-scizzor, SilverPowder, Swarm and Swords Dance. Watch the video. I just saw it, and my love for the monster bee bloomed again. Of course, it won't rise to the standards of Scizor, not any more. It will never outspeed Ninjask, and not cause Kyogre to flee in terror like Shedinja. It won't take hits like the bunker Forretress, or win the hearts of little sisters like Beautifly. But Beedrill can punch holes in Snorlax and one-hit-KO Tyranitar after a little setup. Beedrill isn't an useless-but-cool Pokémon anymore, at least not totally. He has proven that if you make him angry enough, Beedrill will haunt your dreams again.

So that's Beedrill. Average at best, hiding in niches to be effective, but totally badass. To us veterans, there will never be a scarier Pokémon, nothing will ever make you jump at buzzing sounds like the bee from the first generation. Back when Pokémon was Pokémon.

To Beedrill.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 25, 2010, 02:37:12 AM
Okay, then. As long as we're doing tributes (sorry if you have copyright issues, Cobraroll :)) I think I'll make one to a very underused Pokemon: Shuckle. Note, I'm mostly doing strategies here. You might find it interesting, though. :)

Shuckle is a very infamous Pokemon. Wretched, crappy offensive stats. Abysmal Speed. Less-than-average HP. What's so great about it? Shuckle holds the record for being the Pokemon in the series with the highest Defense AND Special Defense. If you hit this Bug- and Rock-type Pokemon with a STAB Hydro Pump from a higher-level Blastoise, it MIGHT get it down by 1/5 HP. And it has Sturdy, shielding it from those pesky 1-hit KO moves. Not to mention its resistance to Sandstorm.

Shuckle is curious - and irritating - to use in battle, as of course it has simply horrible offensive stats. In gen II and III, it had potential ability. You could teach it annoying health moves like Rest (combo with Chesto Berry goes for really frustrated opponent). You can have it learn Attract to stop your opponent from using moves that wouldn't have much effect anyway. And then you could use Protect. Encore also goes for good irritation.

But, as we all know, these moves, while fun to use to make your opponent mad, are not enough to win a battle. So, most Shuckle movesets contained a move like Toxic. That's extremely risky, though, as you still have no weapon against Poison- or Steel-type Pokemon. Sandstorm is another option, but it's so slow that there's really no point.

So things really started to get interesting in gen IV. Shuckle was mostly kept with the same moveset. It had the noteworthy addition of Gastro Acid, nullifying the foe's ability.

But the move that gave Shuckle real potential was the addition of Power Trick, which switches the user's Attack and Defense. Now, that often can be bad, as its Speed is still horrible, plus it has terrible Defense now.

This can still be used to your advantage. A very skilled usage of Power Trick can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JzKMzQ64q0

Defensive or offensive, Shuckle can be a real powerhouse.

Shuckle: useless? Or misunderstood? Decide for yourself, my friends...

It's really a time-passer for those who don't love the battle frontier, or are bored of it, and have nothing to do besides daily events. :P

Hacked mons are fine as long as you keep them for yourself, i.e don't trade them/battle with them. So as long as he doesn't then it's fine.
Title: Re: General Pokémon

You're in Ontario (I think)?

US Universities are astronomical, unless you live in the state and go to a public university... I'm only paying $21,000 USD by the time all is said and done. Most schools here are $50,000 USD with all the fees and crap.

I would have gone to Texas, but it was too expensive and even the UC schools were pretty pricey, so I went to the cheaper, more well known school in the CSU system.

I'm not in Ontario, I'm in Quebec. I'm probably going to go to the Université Laval in Quebec city since they offer the possibility of studying abroad. I wanted to study in Japan, because it's so different from here, but they only offer my program in Spain... so I guess I'll go with that.

How that helps either of us, I have no idea.

It was the story of my life. I was really smart in some subjects, but not so in others (Physics, ugh), but the people around me were just as smart. They are just lazy. They do their homework the morning its due... even worse, the class before its due. So when I show everyone a project a week before its due, everyone looks at me like I'm taking crazy pills or something. And then there are group projects in my non-AP classes. These guys were so stupid they'd think Garfield is Shakespeare, ok, not THAT stupid, but you get the picture. I usually got stuck in a group (which im not really happy about because of the following) and then everyone would say they would take separate stuff. Then two days before its due, I ask all of them, none of them did it. So I finished it all that night, and to be a wise-ass, I just put my name on it (I only did last year cause I was fedex+ups=fed up). Win for me! Not-so-Win for everyone else... people down here have a SERIOUS procrastination problem

/rant

To keep this Pokémon related, all the seniors for the second semester brought in Gameboys with R/S/E/FR/LG and of course me with SS just played Pokémon in classes, not really caring about much work anymore... WOO Senioritis! I'm cured now, fyi

Also, I have a Golden mask which increases the recruit rate by 24%. Plus I'm lvl 100. So... how much is the recruit rate now?
EDIT:
You don't have to answer.
Remaining Pokemon:
Rayquaza: around 39%
Kyogre: around 39%
Articuno: around 69%
Recruited Articuno, Kyogre and Rayquaza are going to be a b!7$*# to catch.

EDIT:

Recruited Kyogre.
All that's left is the Ozone living Pokemon Rayquaza.

Strange. And I'm not too concerned about beating my HeartGold, as I like SoulSilver better, and want that to be my main game. I got HeartGold so I didn't have to delete my SoulSilver, and so I could go through Johto any time I wanted...

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 28, 2010, 01:57:19 AM
Totodile is a really good choice. It has the best Attack stat of the three starters. Though admittedly it also has the worst Special Attack.

Chikorita is really balanced (which can be good or bad) - it has slightly above-average points for all stats.

Cyndaquil is for those reckless trainers who like all-out power (95% of Pokemon players) but has poor defense. However, its Speed is so high that you don't really need to worry about defense.

so you're calling me reckless??? I choose it cause it looks cool (plus i like the type of animal they're derived from... hedgehogs!)... and I like to be reckless sometimes!

If Pokémon have a really great stat, chances are that there is a not-so-great stat, too.

I'll probably go with Chikorita. I haven't used Bayleef in a long time! Then, I could just use either a Vulpix/Growlithe for my fire needs. I'll make a team and get back to you on that!

Recruited Darkrai.
The second hardest Pokemon to recruit in Mystery Dungeon.
My favorite quote by him:
"The darkness sleeps inside me... I can still feel it at times..."
EDIT:
Found a gif about Empoleon vs Salamance.

I get mine on august 19th if I'm not mistaken, and I'm starting school on August 23rd. At least during the first school week I'll be able to modify my schedule if I don't like it. And no more English classes, which means I'll finally be able to finish classes before 9 PM! Awsm!

I dunno, get like a combination of Slowpoke and another character from other games.
Examples:

So Zetta Slowpoke. (Combination of the Grim Heaper from The World Ends With You and Slowpoke)

Deapool+Slowpoke

There's a whole bunch to choose from. (http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/slowpoke)

Hahaha. I restarted my HeartGold (drpamplemousse reached for his gun) because I wanted to relive my original Silver experience - I'm going to train only Chikorita. Should take a while. :D
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 30, 2010, 06:21:45 PM
Yep... but if you only train Chikorita, you're gonna get one strong grass type pretty quick! I may try that out and have a single Pokémon if and when I restart Platinum or SoulSilver
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 30, 2010, 06:23:24 PM
It makes the game much easier, but also far harder. For example, your Pokemon is ridiculously high-leveled normally... but in the Battle Frontier, it's just level 50 like everyone else and you have no backup. :)
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on July 30, 2010, 06:32:01 PM
A friend of mine used to train only his starter... but doesn't that make the game boring? You've no diversity in your team, stuck with one type... I know I wouldn't like it.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 30, 2010, 06:33:41 PM
Yeah, the only good thing about it is that it takes away the boring training sessions when you catch a weak Pokemon you plan on training... of course, that is solved easily enough using the day care.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 30, 2010, 06:38:01 PM
true... but you won't get EVs from the daycare
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on July 30, 2010, 06:41:53 PM
Yeah, but throughout the game you get random EVs anyway. So I think it's better to try and EV train them the way you want when you capture them. I don't do that though since my 'mons either have crappy IVs or I don't have the berries to remove the non desired IVs.
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Now I have a lot too, because of my action replay. Really useful when you train your freshly bred Pokemon. :P
And I always forget where I plant my berries, so in the end I never get any. So berry pots ftw.

I don't hack, I just use it for those kind of things, i.e getting items for breeding. You'd be surprised by how many people do that.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 30, 2010, 06:50:21 PM

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 30, 2010, 06:50:51 PM
you know, what's really funny. I got my ARDS while I was in canada. I looked everywhere and finally found one at Zellers (even the local wal mart didnt have it... haha)

Now, I just use it to get TMs and Berries when I start a new game. I want to train my Pokémon right, so that's what I do that (I dont do the medicine or general items cheats... that's just not right)
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 30, 2010, 06:53:07 PM

Items are not considered hacked in Pokemon games, just so you know. And there is a huge difference between hacking the game like crazy, or doing what Drpamplemousse and I do.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on July 30, 2010, 06:54:42 PM
Eh, I'm going by my personal opinion. In order to get the items, your game must be tampered with. Is it seriously bad stuff? No. But your game has been messed with.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 30, 2010, 06:55:57 PM
It's basically giving you the best and all of your training options. This allows you to make you Pokémon see its true potential!

It isnt bad stuff, Slow. It's the most basic of fixing up the game. Item mods can be easily deleted. Just delete the items and you're back to normal
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Oni-Link on July 30, 2010, 06:56:23 PM
Okay okay.
I only use them on non-competitive games. Or games that I don't really have a challenge.
Otherwise, I like the challenge and I don't want to be unfair.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 30, 2010, 06:57:53 PM

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on July 30, 2010, 06:59:16 PM
Don't worry, I see your point. But I only do it after I finish my game, meaning I've done pretty much everything I can before I get to breeding. I don't like messing with my game when I know I haven't finished the story yet. And at least it's not as messed up as if I were hacking Pokemon. :P

And sorry if I sounded rude, that wasn't my intention at all. :D
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on July 30, 2010, 07:02:30 PM
I didn't mean to bring tension (or rudeness), either...

Basically using item mods justs adds a few lines of code that are extraneous for the game to run correctly. Pokémon mods change the game's code slightly, and may affect the game some way some how!

I always play out a story first, then use some "extras" at the end or when I restart and know the story well (except for Spyro, cause its just way too easy)

I only use AR codes in Pokemon, because it's the only game I feel that's worth it. Having the fast hatch code is great when you need to breed a Pokemon with a certain nature/ability. Having to do over 3000 steps only to see you messed up... that must be something. :P

And I want caek pls.

I'll use a lucky egg as fast exp gain... I used to be heavily reliant on Rare Candies... but I'm off the stuff. I used a total of 10 in HG... YAY!

... Then I discovered EVs. Rare Candies just level up the Pokémon and it won't gain EVs

They don't give any. I only used them on the competitive Pokemon I make, just for speed sake. I EV train them, and level them up with rare candies a little.

Actually people put up Pokemon like a chimchar or a dratini and they want to trade it for Darkrai, Mewtwo, Mew, Shaymin... you get the point. But yeah, I agree that stealing 'mons over the GTS sucks.

Morning Sun's a healing move, it's Moonlight's counterpart.
Roar can be a really useful move actually. And those moves are not definitive, it's just the moves it had when it hatched. :P

That's where we found Growlithe/Arcanine back in RBY so I thought it'd be a nice hatching place. I prefer having various hatching places than just Goldenrod/Route 34.

Title: Re: General Pokémon

Yep. Really good breeding choice. Stunky learns Toxic at level 20, so you don't have to waste a TM. And Skuntank learns Flamethrower immediately after evolving. It's almost enough to make you forget that it's cry sounds like farting. :D

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 01, 2010, 06:24:41 PM
Still... I should have added the fact that I want a move that could inflict damage according to its type weaknesses... wasting a perfectly good slot with toxic, when earthquake could be there is just something I can't afford... its my battling style! You prefer the slow and drawn out way, I just want to get on with it!
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 01, 2010, 06:46:44 PM
I mean, I don't always prefer the slow, drawn-out way... that's just foolish. But with most people, it's just attacking recklessly and mindlessly. The way I see it, Toxic is a useful move against Pokemon like Shuckle, and usually the other three spots are filled with "good" moves (i.e., Skuntank - Toxic, Flamethrower, Sludge Bomb, and Dark Pulse).

Although, in that case Toxic could easily be filled with Calm Mind...
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 01, 2010, 07:06:46 PM
now I sometimes use Calm Mind with Alakazam... but with Skuntank, I'd do Night Slash, Sludge Bomb, Poison Jab and Dark Pulse... Skuntank's Attack is higher than its special attack. Flamethrower would be great to have, but it isn't a STAB move
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 01, 2010, 07:12:10 PM
Yeah, I know. :3

It can be good for facing those pesky Grass- and Poison-types who aren't weak to Poison though. :P

Actually, that moveset isn't that great - only two types... keep Poison Jab and Night Slash. Then teach it Slash (learns it naturally) and I would teach it Flamethrower (again, my business...). If you gave it a Scope Lens, Slash and Night Slash become more likely for Critical Hits. If you delete Flamethrower for its base move Focus Energy, you can add to that chance. But you wouldn't do that. :)
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 01, 2010, 07:38:58 PM
nope, no focus energy, but a scope lens would be something i'd use. I may get rid of dark pulse and replace it with flamethrower
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 01, 2010, 07:39:45 PM
Yeah, if you're going to use Dark Pulse, might as well have  a (better) special move of a different type... :P
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 01, 2010, 07:41:04 PM
see... but with Dark Pulse, its a STAB attack... so it may actually be a bit stronger than flamethrower (on a pokemon where dark and fire types affect it normally)

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 02, 2010, 01:33:36 AM
Yeah, easy to train...

But the problem is, as of Gen IV, Jynx learns zero Psychic-type moves. You need to either use a TM for a decent Psychic STAB move, or evolve Smoochum later than Lv30.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 02, 2010, 03:30:35 PM
Blah, that could be good as well... Psychic, Ice Beam, are good (only by TM can Jynx learn them, however). You could then fill the remaining spots with - (note I'm not using physical moves as Jynx's Sp. Atk is really good)

Attack moves:
Wring Out - learns naturally and can be a good move, to some extent
Shadow Ball - move against other Psychic-types
Energy Ball - strong special attack that offers some move type diversity
Focus Blast - same as Energy Ball, but low accuracy
Water Pulse - move for the Fire-types who will kill you
Dream Eater - an alternative for Psychic
Hyper Beam - strong special move, but with a catch

Or you could use some...
Status moves:
Calm Mind - good for Jynx, because most likely it will know only special moves.
Lovely Kiss - a sleeping move that only Jynx learns - 75% accuracy, can irritate opponents
Fake Tears - learns naturally, an alternative for Calm Mind
Toxic - good in a pinch
Hail - puts hurting on non-Ice-type opponents
Attract - not a horrible move, as Jynx is only female and most opponents gamewise are male
Captivate - not as good as Attract, but an alternative

There are also some options like

Combos:
Mean Look + Perish Song
Lovely Kiss + Wake-Up Slap
Lovely Kiss + Dream Eater


Now that we've covered a session on training Jynx, how much does Roz want to breed one? :D Or two? :D

Jynx moveset : Psychic, Ice Beam, HP Fire, Nasty Plot. With that you've got a hell of a sweeper.
I'd love to breed a Jynx, however since it's only female, I need a father i.e Drowzee/Hypno with beastly IVs to begin with. I don't have one, and don't feel like breeding one. Guess I won't really have a choice though.

Also, anyone has a Squirtle they could give me? I can clone it and give it back too. Just need one for breeding, and since my friend's on vacations, I can't transfer 'mons from my plat to my HG game.

HP is Hidden Power. Power and type varies depending on the IVs spread. You probably knew that already, right? :P

This is the BEST hidden power calculator I could find. Try it out yourself.
http://www.metalkid.info/Pokemon/Calculators/HiddenPower.aspx
70 Power is the highest it can be. It gives all the possible IV's for the hidden power, it's better than all the Hidden Power Calculators I could find.

Yep, Metalkid's IV calculator's awesome. Usually the one I use when I need to. There's also a link on psypokes that gives you the combinations of IVs needed to get the HP you need with base power of 70.

Anyway, I ask you this - (I've been breeding for my HG)

When you breed a female Jynx with the moves Psychic, Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, and Lovely Kiss with a male Toxicroak with the moves Nasty Plot, Poison Jab, Sucker Punch, and Revenge, what should the offspring Smoochum know?

From my knowledge, the Smoochum would know Psychic, Ice Beam, Shadow Ball, and Nasty Plot. But, perhaps because I traded it from Platinum, it knows only the move Pound.

Any theories?

Don't ask me, I only breed from FAQ's. Like, I bred a Lucario with a Luxray so it could learn Crunch. Since, Lucario only learns bite, which is basically Crunch but weaker, I changed it.

Try breeding one with a Hypno instead. I did, and it works.
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Nah, I just traded the TMs over. So my Smoochum knows Pound, Lick, Ice Beam and Psychic. Hope you don't think I'm cheap, but I also traded over the Energy Ball TM (Smoochum can't learn until evolving).

The last spot will either be filled with Calm Mind (top choice at the moment), Sweet Kiss (less likely), or Lovely Kiss, which I can now only get through the Move Tutor. :P

And I'm not sure about Slowpoke anymore... may not train it.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 05, 2010, 12:58:30 AM
Jynx does have the higher base stats, and a WAYY better Sp Attack and Sp Defense, too. You really gotta beef up Jynx's Defense... a whole lot!

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 05, 2010, 01:09:05 AM
Blah, that could be good as well... Psychic, Ice Beam, are good (only by TM can Jynx learn them, however). You could then fill the remaining spots with - (note I'm not using physical moves as Jynx's Sp. Atk is really good)

Attack moves:
Wring Out - learns naturally and can be a good move, to some extent
Shadow Ball - move against other Psychic-types
Energy Ball - strong special attack that offers some move type diversity
Focus Blast - same as Energy Ball, but low accuracy
Water Pulse - move for the Fire-types who will kill you
Dream Eater - an alternative for Psychic
Hyper Beam - strong special move, but with a catch

Or you could use some...
Status moves:
Calm Mind - good for Jynx, because most likely it will know only special moves.
Lovely Kiss - a sleeping move that only Jynx learns - 75% accuracy, can irritate opponents
Fake Tears - learns naturally, an alternative for Calm Mind
Toxic - good in a pinch
Hail - puts hurting on non-Ice-type opponents
Attract - not a horrible move, as Jynx is only female and most opponents gamewise are male
Captivate - not as good as Attract, but an alternative

There are also some options like

Combos:
Mean Look + Perish Song
Lovely Kiss + Wake-Up Slap
Lovely Kiss + Dream Eater


Now that we've covered a session on training Jynx, how much does Roz want to breed one? :D Or two? :D

Just thinking of something...

Okay, as I've discussed before (in my second Pokemon rant, seen above), Jynx can be a real powerhouse when trained properly. However, maybe because it looks so bizarre, it has remained in the underused and unpopular section.

This can be a very good thing, as most trainers are not prepared for a Jynx.

I've got some options, and I think I'm going to go with Jynx's Calm Mind moveset - Calm Mind, Psychic, Energy Ball, and Ice Beam.

Calm Mind could also be substituted for Toxic, Hail, or Lovely or Sweet Kiss. Ah, well.

I could combine it with Magmortar and Electivire to make the ultimate Ice/Fire/Electric Battle Frontier team! Hahaha.

That would be REALLY sick! I've been training Girafarig, and it may fare so well. I'm not final on the moves yet, but it'll probably be Zen Headbutt, Psychic, Stomp and either Energy Ball or Crunch

Hey, Roz, Oni, Dr Pamplemousse, Cobraroll, or anyone else who feels like helping -

I'm breeding an Elekid next (in my SS, for my HG). I'm breeding an Electabuzz with a Hitmonchan so it will know the moves Thunderpunch, Fire Punch, and Ice Punch. :)

Later on I'm deleting Thunderpunch for Thunderbolt, and its final spot will most likely be Brick Break.

Then comes Magby, which unfortunately cannot learn Ice Punch, but can learn the other two... so its moveset will definitely contain Thunderpunch and Flamethrower... what else should I teach it?
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on August 05, 2010, 03:24:27 PM
I'd go with a fighting-type move, either Cross Chop or Focus Blast. I'd personally go for Focus Blast. As for the last spot... I'd give him HP Ice, but I'm guessing it'll be hard for you to get the right IVs combination for it. The last spot really depends on what your team is/what moves they have.
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Actually, Jynx/Magmar/Electabuxx are "rivals" of each other - like Lileep/Anorith, Bellsprout/Oddish, Slowpoke/Psyduck, etc.

They all have babies in gen II that evolve at the same level, and they are right ext to each other in the Pokedex, just like their parents - Ice first, then Electric, then Fire. :)

But they didn't give Jynx an extra evolution... probably because Game Freak is very tentative of using Jynx after the outcry against its design.

They even changed its face color from black...

Really, unnecessarily long post, sorry. :( And it's interesting to note how much better Sugimori's gotten at art. I mean, look at those pictures of Jynx, compare the Red/Green/Blue design to the FireRed/LeafGreen design. Even from there, look at Smoochum's HGSS design... pretty cool drawings. :3

It's funny because I caught the Lv47 or so one in Distortion World, and trained it with my party, but dropped it once it was Lv70... then I caught Dialga and Palkia Lv70 on Spear Pillar, you know, so they're lined up next to each other in my PC.

And yeah, Skuntank is like eighteen times better than Gliscor.

I'm sorry to object to this.

Gliscor has superior stats to Skuntank, save for HP and Special Attack. Gliscor biggest selling point, perhaps, is a STAB Earthquake and an immunity to said move itself (while Skuntank is flattened by it. Earthquake is the most commonly seen move in competitive battling). Gliscor can also learn Swords Dance, a move Skuntank would have killed for. Other advantages on the movepool side of things are Stealth Rock, reliable healing (roost), Stone Edge, Rock Polish, U-Turn, etc, etc. It's also immune to Spikes and Toxic Spikes, and it isn't outclassed by another Pokémon which fills the same niché (who in their right mind would choose Skuntank over Drapion?).

Also, Skuntank is stopped dead by Steel types. Admittedly, Gliscor doesn't like Gyarados much, but can always work around it by building another move pool. Skuntank's only option against Steel types is Rock Smash.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Oni-Link on August 05, 2010, 10:17:54 PM
The stars are...

  • Defeat the Elite Four
  • Collect five Shiny Leaves on one Pokemon and speak to Lyra/Ethan in New Bark Town
  • Defeat the records on all ten Pokeathlon events
  • Get a 100-win streak in the Battle Tower
  • Complete the National PokeDex. You need to capture all Pokemon other than Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Deoxys, Phione, Manaphy, Darkrai, Shaymin, and Arceus, giving you a total of 484 in your PokeDex.
We know, I saw what stars you can get on Serebii.

The city wok owner has a stereotypical chinese accent so he says "shitty wok" instead of city wok... basically an elaborate form of shitty

Im in the battle arcade now for a change of pace

Well, I usually went with the Battle Tower first, but I chose the least likely one I would choose.

Go for the one you really wouldn't choose (Arena? Arcade? Castle?)

If you cant choose, go with Battle Castle!

Definitely Tower. The others are just silly and the Tower is the most fun anyway.

Or, pick the Hall if you have a really move diversified Pokemon.

In my Platinum, I go on the Hall (and have beaten the brain) with a Gardevoir that knows Psychic, Thunderbolt, Shadow Ball, and Signal Beam. Gives it incredible advantages over many types, which include Dark.

The Battle Factory is so hard it's ridiculous, and the Battle Arcade is just a bad rehash of the Battle Tower that takes too long for my liking.

I don't really think they can be compared... they're pretty much the same for me, but I would rather listen to the remixed. I like both better than the Four Island remix though. ;P

It's probably my favorite song in G/S. Actually, I love all of them

Beaten Whitney, going on Route 35.

I spent forever playing Voltorb Flip because it's freakishly fun now. Got like 3000 coins and bought a Dratini... however, I was considering training it, but it has a Bold nature, so I won't. Besides, I think I'm just gonna stick with the four I've got.

Took a Team Rocket Photo with my Pokemon and dressed up my Smoochum! :D

You can only use one from the movie, first, and then the one from the hall of origin the second time... and that's it. I tried with a third one from Japan, and no dice.

Not strange at all, seeing as how Blue/Red/Yellow's batteries will never die unless they malfunction by a fluke. Gold/Silver/Crystal had a time battery that needs to keep running even while the game is off... so it will run dry eventually.

that's what I figured. Crystal still works, though! I'm gonna buy that special screwdriver to open up the games and replace the batteries, so I can play G/S again...

PokeDex - 15

And if you ask why I only have that many registered in 15 hours, it's because my HeartGold isn't going to be a serious game, not going for PokeDex.

Nah, I've been to Ecruteak, but I only have three badges...

BUT you have to take all this into account -

-I raised my Chikorita to Lv10 before bringing it to the first trainer.
-I trained a Togepi, which needed to be trained in the wild from Lv1 to Lv14.
-I raised a Smoochum, which needed to be trained in the wild from Lv1 to Lv17
-I raised an Elekid, which needed to be trained in the wild from Lv1 to Lv17
-I raised a Magby, which needed to be trained in the wild from Lv1 to Lv17
-When I got to Ecruteak, I backtracked and played Voltorb Flip for literally hours - at the moment I have some 5500 coins, and I already bought a Dratini.
-Plus I don't like speed runs
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 08, 2010, 07:32:56 PM
makes sense, then... but that should only account for around 10 hours... im not usually the speedy type, but the longest i went before my first elite four battle was around 28 hours

ok... itll take me a couple of days if i play for about 8 hours a day.

And the transfer process means all my SS Pokémon are being split and transfered to Platinum and HG... so that means catching a shitload of starly, pidgey, bidoof, rattata, shinx and sentret, and all that fun stuff attached to it.

Ok, I'll take it from the perspective BOTH sites share... its Japanese name


ツタージャ, Ill break it down from here
TSU TA - JYA

Now the dash is what makes things interesting, meaning that it makes the TA have a long a sound... another japanese rule states that when a combination of TA-JYA or TE-JYO or anything that has a long vowel for the first syllable and then a combination, makes another consonant sound preset by what the preceding syllable. So,

It is spelt Tsutaja, but is PRONOUNCED Tsutarja. That's where the mixup is!

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 12, 2010, 05:28:46 AM
It happens to be something normal. The game knows you changed the clock. When you switch the DS time, then the game will think "huh? Why is the DS clock earlier than the previous save data?" and will do into a secret mode that doesn't affect the UI that will reset daily events and other new things (like the daily swarm Pokémon) for another 48 hours

Oh, and I was once a part-time bug tester for DS games for Nintendo (I did Phantom Hourglass and Pokémon Diamond)

It depends on the game. If youre talking about Emerald, your best bet is to get Ralts, found on the route before Petalburg city or Poochyena (its evolution, Mightyena has fairly moderate stats). Lotad can be cool when it evolves into Ludicolo down the road and Wurmples evolve fast into Beautifly and Dustox. But the really powerful ones here is Ralts. Its rare, but when you catch it, you can use it the rest of the game!

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Hoenn_Route_102

If you wanna compare stats, just click on the Pokémon name and take a look at their base stats!
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 12, 2010, 09:40:39 PM
I myself do usually go for Ralts. Aron is the real powerhouse - available for capture on the second floor of the Granite Cave in Dewford Town. Whismur, a really weird-looking pink rabbit...thing is also good at its final stage. For Electric, go Electrike - look for them just north of Slateport City. Fire, go for Numel - the best Fire-type in the game besides Blaziken. Find them in the Fiery Pass above Mauville City. Water, Lotad is good as it's also a Grass-type... Sharpedo, Tentacruel, Crawdaunt, and Whiscash (and Swampert!) are good Waters. For Grass, my personal favorite is Cacnea - it evolves into a Dark- and Grass-type called Cacturne that has amazing Attack and Sp. Attack (find Cacnea in the desert).

Sorry if this is no help at all. :) Those are my opinions though.

Post by: SuperFireKirby on August 12, 2010, 11:13:42 PM
I went with Treecko. So far I've caught a few pokemon but right now the only one I'm actually working on as a perminent member of my team is Abra.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 12, 2010, 11:17:00 PM
Alakazam will make a perfect team member... you should teach it Shadow Ball since there is a Psychic gym in the game.

You should get a Water Pokémon early on for surfing, because it is an integral part of the game this time around and you'll need some high level Pokémon at the same time (without being able to switch at a given moment)
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SuperFireKirby on August 12, 2010, 11:28:42 PM
I know how to play pokemon very well, especially when its comes to making balanced teams. Its just I've been hit with two generations of pokemon and moves that I've never heard of before.

I have an unbeatable team on my blue version consisting of Blastoise, Alakazam, Jolteon, and Nidoking.

Blastoise beats fire, rock, dragon, and even grass.(I've taught it ice moves)

Alakazam beats fighting, ghost, poison, grass, and rock.

Jolteon beats water, ice, and bird.

Nidoking is just an all around powerhouse.


I'm thinking for this game I'll go with grass, psychic, electric, water, and maybe dragon. Good idea?
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 12, 2010, 11:34:36 PM
you still got one more slot open. you may need some ground moves to beat wattson, some fighting moves for norman, some ghost/dark/bug moves for tate and liza, sceptile should be great against juan. but the only problem you might run into is Glacia and Drake in the elite four they are Ice and Dragon respectively. You should get a Snorunt or Spheal (spheal is dual water/ice) like Seel/Dewgong... if you can venture into Shoal Cave, because it can REALLY help you against Drake, but you may need some firepower for Glacia. For Dragon, you can't even reach Bagon until after you beat Juan and ready for the elite four (meaning a crapload of more training on your part if you want a good Salamence) but if you can catch Swablu west of Fallarbor Town, Altaria can really pack a punch! (except itll be weak to Glacia).
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Oni-Link on August 12, 2010, 11:39:27 PM
I think Ice is pretty good, since a lot of people use dragons.

Ice type affects:
Grass, Ground, Flying, and Dragon.

You can OHKO a Salamance with like, Ice Beam.

I think it's a good choice.

OR IF YOU DON'T WANT TO FOCUS ON JUST TYPES YOU COULD TRY TO FOCUS ON STATS.

Or are stats to complicated, that you can't have a well balanced team of one that's defense, one that's a attack, and one that's (Sp)Atk/(Sp)Def+Speed?


My team is like that, I don't focus on "Types". To me, that's not what makes a team balanced.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SuperFireKirby on August 12, 2010, 11:46:49 PM
Well for Glacia and Drake, Electric should take care of Glacia's ice pokemon and a water pokemon with some ice moves will take care of Drake's dragons. Wattson may be a problem, but the treeko>sceptile can learn graound moves so I'm alright there. And Juan will be taken care of with an electric pokemon as well as sceptile.

So far I'd say the team I'm aiming for is good. But I'm thinking in a gen 1 sense anything change that would make what I've just layed not possible? Ex. OMG SFK! ICE ISN'T WEAK AGAINST ELECTRIC ANYMORE! U SO DUMB!!!

And I also focus on stats making sure I don't and up with a situation where pokemon are heavy on attck power and super weak on defense. I try to keep that balanced as well while making sure I have types that can own almost any kind of pokemon.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 12, 2010, 11:56:08 PM
Erm, Ice was never weak to electric... It was just that all Ice-types (except Jynx) were paired with a type that's weak to Electric...

U NOT SO DUMB!!11! ahaha. Electric should do wonders against Glacia's Walrein. Maybe you can teach your water pokemon (whatever it may be) to know Ice Beam. Definitely EV train your Pokémon. I'm doing that for my restart on Soul Silver! You can now look up your Pokémon's nature on Serebii or Bulbapedia and see what stat wont grow as much as the others (unless its one of the five that doesnt change)

Do you have a rough team that youre planning on following through with to Wallace?

Outrage and Zen Headbutt are Move Tutors moves, so you don't have to breed to get them. As for Egg Moves, Dragon Dance/Sleep Talk/Curse are all useful moves.
Title: Re: General Pokémon

But I can Move Tutor Outrage to a compatible breeding Pokémon with Lapras, and then use it! Unless Outrage isnt valid as an eggmove, because Charmander can learn it as an egg move

Keep thinking Snow, and maybe you may get an AH HA moment!

EDIT: F you Roz! Jk. You are the points leader with 2 and Slow is coming up in second with 1 and Oni isnt in this game yet.

Title: Re: General Pokémon

Nah, something really controversial. Like, I don't know. Someone coming on and posting "Sinnoh sucks! Kanto was the best! There are no Pokemon besides the 150 REAL Pokemon and there never will be!"

And everyone takes sides to either agree or say that the new games are great and you're an idiot and if you like the original games so much then go play them.

Either way, it usually spawns really long, heated conversations filled with evidence and reasoning.

Here, though, everyone (except KF, of course) is pretty mellow, so I doubt anyone would get seriously mad.

Anyway, I want to know your opinions, now that I think of it: Which is better, the new or old regions? (Counting Kanto as old, Sinnoh as new, and Johto/Hoenn as anything you like)

I'll post my opinions later... ;P

Well my Magikarp can beat your Magikarp.

That's why using them in Trick Room teams makes them so awesome.
Also, shiny Dunsparce with max IVs everywhere can be deadly.
And I'm going to breed a Shuckle just 'cause its awesome.
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Are you going to go for a power trick shuckle or an annoying defensive shuckle?

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Cobraroll on August 15, 2010, 08:04:56 PM
Hmm... Power Trick Shuckle needs Trick Room support to do any good. As it can't learn Trick Room itself, it means that two of the five turns it's active is spent setting up and switching into Shuckle. Another turn is spent using Power Trick. That leaves you with two turns worth of sweeping. Shuckle also does not resist any priority moves save for Fake Out, Quick Attack and ExtremeSpeed, and are actually weak to Aqua Jet and Bullet Punch, two of the most used priority moves. Thus, you end up with a near-useless Shuckle who also is vulnerable to opponents.

I'd say a defensive Shuckle is more effective. Go for that.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SuperRiolu on August 15, 2010, 08:22:47 PM
I agree with Cobraroll. Trick Room doesn't necessarily block any of the priority moves from happening, it's just for normal moves and inverting it so the slower Pokémon goes first using a normal move. If you create a super-defensive Shuckle (which I did in my Argent SoulSilver game, using this thing called a RNG), then you can just "rollout" until every trainer is defeated (though not necessarily using rollout)
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 15, 2010, 09:28:50 PM
As if we didn't know what RNGing is! xD

EDIT: I also vote Defensive Shuckle, UNLESS you do this:

Use the first Pokemon in your party with Trick Room, next turn use Explosion (Bronzong is the example I'm thinking of, but there are many others). Then send out Shuckle with Power Trick (I'm assuming Explosion killed the opponent) and HAVE IT HOLD FOCUS SASH

If you do, even if you're attacked with Bullet Punch (I'm not counting Aqua Jet because its Sp. Def stays the same) then it won't die.

Don't think you can teach us anything about Pokemon. I, as well as the rest of the people here, already know a lot.  Sorry if it sounds rude, I don't mean to, but that's just how it is.

Yeah, I planned on breeding a defensive one. And even if there are a lot of priority moves out there, Trick Room teams can be deadly when you're not prepared for it. It's the same as Rain Dance/Sunny Day/Hail/Sandstorm teams. You can easily be swept when you don't know how to deal with them.

No, it isn't rude at all! It means now I can talk with people who know a lot like Pokémon  ;D. Most of my friends who I play Pokémon with don't have any idea what a RNG is.

Good to see you take it that way. :P I'm a lot into RNG too, but since I work 6 days a week I don't really have time to breed anything at the moment. >_< And I don't know, even though my mother tongue's French, I really do prefer English. I guess it's because people around me have a tendency to butcher it.

I, unfortunately, have to speak more english. my parents speak a lot of english (well, my dad is American) and they have to for work. For my age, my english is pretty well advanced for being from a country that ONLY speaks French. Work hinders fun, IMO.When I leave from university, I'm going out on my own, or with a small group of people (so I can pick my hours). Currently, I'm RNG-ing a Shiny Surskit with near perfect IVs. Ill let ya know how they turn out

Out of sheer boredom respect for the language and a desire not to butcher it, I decided to quit French as soon as I had the chance. If English and mimicry can't help me out of a situation, I'm pretty sure French can't either.

English is actually a language of Germanic origin. But we do take bits and peices from latin based languages such as french and spanish.

You would call a person who speak 2 languages bilingual. You would call a person who speaks 3 languages trilingual.

But what do you call someone who speaks only one language?

American.

American.

Because most Americans can barely grasp the true essence of the English Language.

And I know about being Bilingual. I AM BILINGUAL! I still make some grammatical errors in my second language, its just not what im used to! (and Roz can scoff at my remarks and fix 'em up all nice)... understanding is the easy part!

And I also know about the Germanic Origins. I spent about three months studying Beowolf and the Canterbury Tales, some in the original Anglo-Saxon language (which is extremely easy once you can adapt it to modern English).

It's Lv15 because I just started training it. I was trying to decide between Miltank or Tauros (Miltank is better, IMO). I would WAY rather have Snubbull, but as it is practically impossible to find (and I don't feel like hatching another Egg from my SS) I'm training Miltank. She will face Morty...because she has the amazing Scrappy ability!

Yeah, Tauros is really good! I caught one with Intimidate, though... a really good ability, but I prefer Anger Point.

Plus, I was ticked that it had a timid nature... slow-rising attack doesn't sit well with Tauros.

Also, Miltank has a better move pool overall. Milk Drink is probably the best healing move in the game besides Slack Off (made better by the fact that Slowpoke learns it) and Roost.

Snubbull would have completed the "cutesy" team better, though. ;D

Well, you can tell your teacher that he's wrong, because "Bon chance" is not correct.  The4 only way to spell that is Bonne chance. And you should say La France a de la chance. ;)


Well, I will never, ever talk to that "putain" (yes, i know its pretty bad) ever again... she made my life a living hell. She thought she was all "I know French and you don't" and we agreed, because she was from Nice and she killed the fun of learning with SOOOO much busy work. We were done with la futur in two days, and she spent two weeks covering it. I'll take la feminin from now on, since it seems like its going to be that way (trust me, my speaking is better).

But The reason why I said La france a la chance, because It CAN have all the chance in the world, not just some. But si c'est la route je dois suivre, alors, anisi soit-il!

Ok... then im good -whew-. my teacher really took it personally when I was describing some woman in French History when I wrote it in a paper... I think I was talking about Marie Antoinette

How was that last sentence (i love that phrase, anisi soit-it!... oh and C'est pas de ma faute!)

And see, there are reasons WHY i disconnect myself from Disney, Slow... MANY reasons (Excessive Crowds at Disneyland, too many tourists at Disneyland, Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, they have to conglomerate everything, they have to really get their name out there, they own ABC, they have to overcharge everyone for churros and bottled water, they overly hype everything, Miley Cyrus (yes she needs to be in here twice)... she is such an annoying lump of a human, they have to ruin the world, they have to ruin great video games like Pokémon, watch south park, season 12... something about absinance/chastity... that sums up only some of my disgruntling feeling towards them )

I used to love the Suite Life. It was a pretty funny show. Now they have that stupid "Suite Life on Deck" or "Hannah Montana" or "Sonny With a Chance"

I never watch Disney Channel anymore, unless they're showing a Tim Burton or Harry Potter movie... I like it to watch movies because they show few commercials, and no "real" commercials.

Anyway.

Arcanine would be pretty awesome, but it is pretty huge. I could take an Ursaring (and Ill still be taller than it)... but definitely either Umbreon or Growlithe... Pokabu would be cool, too... TOO MANY DECISIONS... ARRRRRGHHHH!

Fine, let's say two.

There are indeed many choices...

Hmm. Slowpoke and...

Perhaps Leafeon? Phanpy and Teddiursa do make for the most adorable pair. xD Hmm. Misdreavus could be interesting to have around. Blissey? You'd be the healthiest person alive. Bulbasaur/Charmander/Squirtle are all so cool! Hypno? No more Insomnia (still, I think I learned from Kare's mistake). And what about baby Pokemon?

Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff, and Togepi obviously have the typical evolutions. Wynaut would be hilarious, same for Mime Jr. Vulpix, even cooler than Growlithe. Marill...:) Meowth, Psyduck... Smoochum, Elekid...

The list is neverending. And I only covered some of the cute ones. We could go even farther with strength. I may be taking this too seriously. But that's okay, too.

I think the only thing that Canada doesn't have is a desert. We may have one in west Canada, I don't really know for sure. And you're wrong about the first part. There are a lot of people outside of Montreal and Quebec City. There are a lot of villages here. The only place where no one lives is in the north, 'cause it's too cold; or so they say.

Not to mention im just feeling really tired after entering a place I applied to work earlier (a place where I wanted)... and after wowing everyone on my part, hire someone else and just dont tell me that they went with someone else, it is quite irking. At least I have a steady job that I'll have to quit before I move up north. Hopefully I can get it off my mind and get a better job (insert all the religious stuff here, so as not to offend the non-Christian folk out there).

Are you going into college, Roz? or are you still in your high school equivalent school (whatever that is in Canada).

I'd hate to break it to you, but you can only be reincarnated in the caste system. Maybe one of the castes can be like Pokémon Trainer or something so it CAN happen. You'll have a better shot in Buddhism than Hinduism. (sorry, i took a world religion course my last year of HS... it was pretty cool... it basically went a little in-depth into major religions, and then we studied cults and then the "crazy mormons" (as my teacher put it). Some of there beliefs are a little... Farfetch'd... haha)

GroundClaw(Gliscor)
~BlueDuck~ (golduck)
And two Porygon-Z's
PoryPower (Pure raw power)
PoryPwnage (1 high attacking move and some more accurate attacks)

I traded a Quilfish for a Spiritomb over the GTS... if you put up something reasonable like that, youll probably get it!!
Spiritomb just isnt fair, since no one can have super-effective attacks against it and its immune to Psychic, Normal and Fighting!!

You have a pretty solid team, otherwise, you definitely covered some bases there (and I'm guessing one of those is your favorite Pokémon)

Also. LESS THAN 1 MONTH UNTIL BLACK AND WHITE IN JAPAN!!!!!!!!!!!

It's a mid-range Pokémon in my book, not necessarily super powerful, and it's weak to like 4 or 5 types because of its Bug/Flying combination. It is a pretty Pokémon however! Masquerain was part of my main team for Diamond, and then I used it in contests mostly (its the perfect contest Pokémon)

You know TV Tokyo showed Pokémon... you have that program on your computer... it was on. I just then realized you didnt want to be up at 5 AM to see it live.

I acutally dont think it will be Officer Jenny and Nurse Joy... they can't change something that was already established. Since its "far away" they reset the routes, the game names (they are back to colors), and now the people will be reset that will be recurring in the subsequent Gen VI, VII and VIII (if it reaches that far).

So its probably going to be Officer Mary and Nurse Maggie (something similar like that... but not necessarily what I said)

Since its "far away" they reset the routes, the game names (they are back to colors), and now the people will be reset that will be recurring in the subsequent Gen VI, VII and VIII (if it reaches that far).

So its probably going to be Officer Mary and Nurse Maggie (something similar like that... but not necessarily what I said)

I know what you mean, but the fact that it won't be Jenny and Joy makes me sad. And I watched it this morning, as you said I didn't feel like watching it live. :P

Yep... and theres a possibility of no Brock and he's going to be replaced by this photography dude from Kanoko Town. Also, Dawn leaves (yay).

Im so sad about Officer Jenny (she was my favorite character in the beginning part of the anime)... then I just got mixed in to so many and kept changing my mind.

I get to sleep in tomorrow! Woo!

Title: Re: General Pokémon

The voice actors over here have changed a few times. Every region has seen a new voice actor for Sacha (or Ash in English)
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 20, 2010, 10:16:59 PM
No. Not every region. Veronica Taylor did it for quite a while. All the way up to Battle Frontier, I believe.

Then along came Ash's new suckish voice actor. Who is still doing it.

(This goes for English, at least...it may be different in France)

I have also officially shelved HG and packed it with my other DS which is going to school with me. Maybe we can do it after I unpack (which will be three weeks away from monday)

And I can wait for BW... I have decided to hold off on playing the JP version early, but I will be watching the anime in Japanese, prepping for my Japanese class and doing my bulbapedia thang!

There is so much Pokemon branded stuff there.  It's pretty schweet actually.  But it's still considering mostly a kids thing, just like it is here.  It's only ok for older people to play the games if they had played them in their childhood and it's PART OF THEIR VERY BEING.

But you will see grown men in business suits playing something on a DS, so maybe they do play it?  From what I heard from other high school age students though, it's still mostly for kids.  And people there are not all obsessed with anime, especially CHILDREN'S anime, like all the fucking weeaboos think.  It's still considered a bad thing over there if you are.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 25, 2010, 10:05:46 PM
I actually don't LOVE the anime. Do I like it? Of course, you can't not like it.

But I'm not a huge "fanatic-who-watches-every-episode-religiously".

Not that there is anything wrong with those kinds of people. But I've never been one of them.

As you all know, all I watch religiously are Total Drama and The Middle.

If you still watch Pokemon anime and you are not in elementary school there is a problem.

You can be a cool kid and watch the first episode for nostalgia blast, but you're a twat if you actually keep up with the show.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 26, 2010, 06:15:39 AM
The new stuff is just repetitive and meant for those who can't really understand nearly anything

Ash and Friends meet someone
Someone has a problem
Ash tries to fix problem
Team Rocket interjects
Ash's Pikachu sends them "blasting off again"
It ends in a sunset

talk about BORING... not to mention it isn't even funny nor does it have a single word of sophisticated diction in it. I just have to grind my teeth and watch the new ones (in japanese) so I can get that Golden Porygon award (and I know, it is COMPLETELY POINTLESS, but I've already started, why stop when im almost done?) and then I'm off to Black and White (the games) in three weeks, and I won't have to suffer through Ash's incessant annoyance and Dawn's constant annoyance of everything in general

Title: Re: General Pokémon

Who cares?

PLUS, that's not something you can answer. EVERY Pokemon (even Magikarp) has its uses (even if that use is to be sent out while you heal a stronger Pokemon).

That's a pretty stupid question. If Roz, Oni, or DrP want to answer, they can...but I'm not wasting my time. ::)
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 27, 2010, 02:10:22 AM
No Question is stupid, slow...

But in this case, you may be asking people with Doctorates in Pokémon, but we just can't choose a set of 6, or even a list of 20. Like Slow said, every Pokémon has it's uses.

I will say one thing: Alakazam/Porygon-Z/Slaking/Blissey/Rampardos/Shuckle/Ninjask/Shedinja

Shuckle? Shedinja? Really? xD

Shedinja's awesome when used properly. Especially because of Wonderguard. Shuckle can be effin' annoying because of it's beastly defenses and especially since it usually knock off/toxic/encore everything out there.

Raymondbl wants to know what the best team of any pokemon from any game is. He won't ask himself, little pansie. Don't be in any hurry to respond.

It's impossible to answer to that question imho. The metagame keeps changing so even if you had a team that could kick ass, after the metagame changes then you might suck if you don't adapt your team to it. Plus it depends in what tier he wants to play; Uber, OU, BL/UU, NU or Little Cup which are all different kind of play style. There are a lot of factors that can make a team good or bad at a specific moment. Also any team can be good depending on how you use your 'mons. We can't just tell him "use that 'mon, it kicks ass" if it doesn't fit with his style play or his team. He should just make a team with good synergy, try it out and change things that need to be changed.

Tri-Attack > Hyper Beam 'cause he doesn't have to waste a turn to recharge.

Hyper Beam is SO much stronger.

Tri Attack is meh.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on August 27, 2010, 10:27:01 PM
Hyper Beam was awesome in RBY. Now it sucks. Using two Tri-Attack is going to deal more damage than using 1 Hyper Beam. The fact that it has 20% chance of either paralyzing, freezing or burning your opponent's 'mons makes it even more better than HB.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 27, 2010, 10:52:09 PM
Tri-Attack is better FTW. Just like Roz said, while youre recharging from HB, you can hit with another STAB Tri-Attack from P-Z. It is probably one of the overlooked options to HB (but it is a fairly used move in comparison to others).

I loved using Tri Attack when I had a Dodrio, and it  can really do more damage than HB
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 27, 2010, 10:53:28 PM
Yeah, Tri Attack is good.

BUT (this has nothing to do with above)

if you use a Slaking, teach it Giga Impact because of its mega attack power. It will have to recharge the next turn, but because of Truant it doesn't matter anyway.

Post by: Roz~ on August 30, 2010, 10:20:06 PM
I hope not too. RBY and GSC are classics and they deserved to have remakes; I don't think the same thing applies with gen 3-4.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 30, 2010, 10:21:22 PM
They're too new. They're part of this generation, whether you like it or not.

Red, Blue, Gold, and Silver were remade JUST SO they could be part of this generation, too. Ruby, Sapphire, Diamond, and Pearl? no point.

I know that, but the fans' demands for a GS remake did help out too. I expect a RSE remake on 3DS.

Actually, that sounds cool! xD

[/contradiction]

I would so get Pokemon Ruby 3DS!
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on August 30, 2010, 11:28:04 PM
Well there were remakes for the GBA, then for the NDS, so remakes for the 3DS... yep, it seems really possible.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 30, 2010, 11:31:22 PM
I actually hope they release a third Pokemon Pinball. I recently started playing my Pokemon Pinball R&S again, and it's really fun, just like I remembered it!

(In case you're interested, I have in my PokeDex 198 out of 201. The only ones I'm missing are Feebas, Milotic, and Skarmory)

Once I get those three, Pokemon Pinball Ruby and Sapphire will become the first game I've ever fully (and legally) completed a PokeDex in! :D
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on August 30, 2010, 11:36:39 PM
Haha yep, Pokemon Pinball's really fun. I liked Pokemon Puzzle League too. :P
And I'm close to completing my Platinum Pokedex. IIRC I only need about 20 more 'mons to do so. So yeah, maybe one day I will... probably not since we're planning on restarting our games.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 31, 2010, 12:26:50 AM
There will always be remakes. Gen III remakes will be made around 2012, as they are already in progress and they will keep on making remakes for future systems, probably adapting them to a new overworld standard in the future
Title: Re: General Pokémon

They're already confirmed?

I'd rather they remake the trading card game or make a sequel.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on August 31, 2010, 02:54:37 AM
They did made a sequel, but it was only released in Japan. I agree though, we need another TCG video game.

I never played TCG, it did look interesting. I stick to main series games for the most part, not really venturing to spin-offs, though I have played a few
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on August 31, 2010, 11:47:01 AM
You should try it. I'm not fond of spin-offs either, but the TCG's awesome. Definitely worth it.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 31, 2010, 12:19:12 PM
I've played the actual cards...used to play them all the time. And if my brother's Yu-Gi-Oh! card game for GBA is fun, Pokemon definitely will be.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on August 31, 2010, 06:30:35 PM
This is prompting me to bring out the ORIGINAL Pokémon cards just to look at them!

My how things have changed from the original 150 and the holographic Charizard that once went for 200 dollars

And sold it for $80 at a charity garage sale.

Post by: DrP on August 31, 2010, 07:21:16 PM
you still made some money on that (if you were hoping to... because of the charity thing and whatnot)

You know what I just realized, I completely forgot Pokémon aired on Saturday and I skipped an episode... Am I free from the crap that is now on? something got to me!

I know... I havent done anything Pokémon for almost a week, and I'm not suffering Withdrawls. I just go in and out of things I like. Now I'm back to being a normal person watching comedys like 30 Rock and Community and I'm play Civilization IV and working on some new piano music:

Chopin's Op 69 No.2 Valse
Mozart's 13th Piano Sonata, No.3
Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata No. 2 and No. 3
Satie's Je te Veux and Lère Gymnopedie
Title: Re: General Pokémon

You have way too much free time to be able to work on all of those.

Right now I'm just working on Moonlight Mov. 3.  It's actually significantly easier than I expected :o

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on September 01, 2010, 02:00:45 AM
Well, DrP already knows I know he's talented.

God, no need to be like that. If I had complimented DrP, you would say how I'm always sucking up to him. Are you ever satisfied?  :P

Also, it wasn't sarcastic.

Hey Slow, just wanted you to know that I managed to transfer some 'mons over to my HG game from my Plat game, meaning I may be able to restart my game soon.

I still kinda suck, you know.

You have way too much free time to be able to work on all of those.

Right now I'm just working on Moonlight Mov. 3.  It's actually significantly easier than I expected :o

I was pretty busy today. I spent the day with my awesome grandma, went to lunch up in yuppie ville (Newport Beach) at this beach cafe... that was one bad Tuna melt... Gruyère doesnt belong with Tuna, then I had Gelato in Laguna Beach (a city south of NB) and then saw some photos from my grandparent's trip to Lithuania and then read an article about my grandfather's speaker company in a Audio Pro magazine... It was pretty fun, though it kinda got boring afterwards

Anyways, I finished the Moonlight Sonata movements over the weekend, though I still have to perfect the third one a bit more. Satie's stuff is quite easy, and now I have begun work on Chopin's stuff (which should take a couple of days) and Mozart's 13th should take a while (it is 14 pages).... I still have two weeks for these two

Mozart's 13th Piano Sonata, No.3
Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata No. 2 and No. 3

ahem... Squirtle... ahem. hahaha

Don't worry, I haven't forgotten :P I tried something out and it didn't work, so I'll go for a shiny one. I'll give you an egg so when it hatches in your game it won't be shiny. It'll be a lot more easier to breed it that way.

Cool! :)

If you can handle waiting till after I'm done with school (and probably homework).

That's also the day that The Middle season two premieres...so I can't do it from 8:00 to 8:30...

Maybe that's not the best day... xD

And Thursdays won't work because I have TSA and piano.



If you want a really early suggestion, we're all off of school this Monday, no? We could do it then if you've finished.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on September 02, 2010, 02:28:44 PM
This Monday eh? I'll try to transfer my 'mons as quickly as possible then. I still have to transfer Regigigas and 'mons I can't get in HG. Shouldn't take me too long.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on September 02, 2010, 07:46:38 PM
Ill do a bunch of transfer stuff on Sunday then, maybe Saturday... I kinda wanted to write a bit, since my novel hasn't been touched in 3½ weeks

You're writing a novel? That's cool! Hope I'll be able to read it one day :D And yeah, I'll also have to do some intense trading this week-end. Dunno when I will since tomorrow I've got to go to school and then work, Saturday I'm off to Quebec City and I work on Sunday... I should be able to do it though. I hope so. :P

I've already learned Lost Woods (non-virtuoso), Minuet of Forest, Bolero of Fire, Serenade of Water, Prelude of Light, Nocturne of Shadow, and Requiem of Spirit. Basically, all the easy Zelda songs.

Oh yeah, I forgot to thank slowPokes for the TWG practice. Need working on my defense, lol.

Edit: Which is better forum ettic... etticate?: editing a post or double posting. I've seen people complaining about others double posting, so I'm gonna guess editing. Correct me if I'm wrong, though.
And of the new TCG set, HS - Triumphant expansion
Would you rather get the theme deck built around Mamoswine (Verdant Frost) or Nidoking (Royal Guard)?
I would get Verdant Frost and make my brother get Royal Guard, so I can switch whenever I want to. However, this is only the case if I actually get the chance to buy them. What about you?
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on September 04, 2010, 02:22:27 AM
Editing is better ETIQUETTE. x)

But if it's been a while since a post (about a week) double posting is excusable because it marks this topic as new posts.

Anyway, I really love Pokemon. Want to order Pokemon Stadium soon.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on September 04, 2010, 02:50:52 AM
I'd like to get into TCG 'cause then I'd be able to enter VGC and TCG. But since there's no one to play with it'd be kinda hard.

You need to click on one if you want to be able to see the channel's name. I can't say exactly which one it is... start browsing them from the bottom of the list.

Edit: Damnit, they're only showing Worlds footage! I already know what happened there! Show some BW stuff ffs! x)
Edit 2: I lol'd hard at the fact that they only showed footage of the junior division, probably because Ray Rizzo won against Yasuki Tochigi, hahaha. Unless they're going to show footage of the senior division next week... That would be unlikely though since it's supposed to be the big show with Junichi Masuda. And about the Musical part, they only showed the hall where they're going to take place. It lasted for what... 30 seconds? Kinda sucked.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on September 06, 2010, 03:08:57 AM
Yep... Books for Fall Quarter, an new iPod, Goldeneye for Wii, Civ V, more money for Starbucks, money so I can go out to dinner once a week, a new clarinet, new cookbooks, new stuff to fill my apartment (yes, I have to overcome my fears and walk into Bath and Body Works and Yankee Candle), and $3000 for a trip to China and Tibet (and possibly another $800 to go to Canada)... and some other things on my list (which is somewhere)
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on September 06, 2010, 03:13:06 AM
You'd better try to visit me if you come to Canada :D
I think Pokemon Ranger 3 looks interesting. I wonder if we'll get something like the Manaphy Egg to transfer in other Pokemon games... maybe BW?
And I think we should wait for you Slow, since we said we'd all restart our games together.

I don't think I'll be allowed to go past Moncton UNLESS my dad is there, and he drove up from Massachusetts, then we could take a "trip" to Quebec City... he is fluent in French, Lithuanian, Chinese and I think German (he did work for OTAN in Luxembourg for 9 or 10 years!)

So how 'bout that Pokemanz?

After having never owned my own handheld console, and thus no Pokemon games, my friend and I have decided we're going to buy GBA's, and a copy of either Red or Blue each, and Gold or Silver each. This is gonna be fun.

I was tossing up between the fat purple one and the SP, which is better overall? And is the SP backwards compatible?
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Yep... the SP is better since it has a lighted screen and I've played Crystal and Gold on it... so it is backwards compatible

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on September 06, 2010, 02:31:27 PM
Plus it has a backlight. Seriously. ;)

And I could be on AIM at 3. Maybe.

Either way, thanks for waiting... :P

EDIT: I think I might be gone today. Here's what I have to say: Start at 12 (DrP, that's 10 for you), and I'll start at that time even though I might not have Internet. I know that's early, but I think I might have a long car ride ahead of me, and Platinum would sure pass the time.

If you're both on AIM earlier than that, we'll start then.

Any questions? Good.

If you really want to wait until I get home, that's good too.

SECOND EDIT: Oh my God, I better transfer my team from Platinum to SoulSilver! I have a pretty amazing team!

Girafarig Lv37
Torterra Lv37
Scyther Lv37
Azumarill Lv37
Crobat Lv38
Luxray Lv38

o_O

How am I in Canalave City, and I never finished the game with a team like that???

BTW, I also have a Lv30-31 Probopass in my PC...I dropped it for Scyther.

BTW BTW, training tip: Use the VS Seeker to battle the trainer with Happiny above Solaceon Town about 800 times... Happiny give you SO MUCH EXP

If it's 10 for DrP, then it's 1 PM for me. I might work today, seems like someone can't work today... I'm feeling kinda sick, so I won't go anyway, haha. That should be okay with me.

OH right, DrP is THREE hours behind EDT...

nvm.

And epic win on not going to work.

But, I guess we're not GOING anywhere, but I have to go to my frickin' neighborhood pool, where it will be crowded and ESPECIALLY cold since it's the last day the pool is open. ::)

Anyway, that'll only be a few hours. So.

Title: Re: General Pokémon

I say we restart them at 1 pm EDT (earlier is better, but you have to let me know, and tonight is also fine).

I'm staying home from the pool because I have an AWFUL migraine... most likely because I had cheddar cheese this morning.

I lost my peripheral vision for an hour, but now I just have a headache over one eye... I need something to distract me.

Tonight would be better for me since I'm about to go to work. I also need to transfer some Pokemon over... didn't have time to finish yesterday.

J'agree! I think tonight would be better... I was slapped with a list of chores since I woke up at 9 this morning... I gotta start getting ready for school! (one of those chores is soaking meat in beer!)

Isn't the RNG exploit technically cheating?

It's like looking at the answers for a test imo
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on September 09, 2010, 06:20:37 AM
It's not necessarily "cheating"... you're basically taking steps to "weed" out the weaker of the Pokémon to converge on that one standing in the center looking all helpless and BOOM, you capture (or hatch it)

I don't think that this much effort goes into cheating on a normal basis (except for programming hex characters into a little device)
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on September 09, 2010, 11:56:13 AM

No it's not. When you use Pokesav or any AR codes, you modify the coding of the game to get something you want. The RNG helps you getting Pokemon with desired HP, nature, shininess, etc. Basically it's a tool that helps you get legit 'mons without using any external devices to get what you want. It's not cheating, we're only using the game coding at our advantage. There wouldn't be a huge community RNGing 'mons if it was considered as cheating.

So, it seems like I fail at RNG'ng some Pokémon

Well, if the stuff Roz teaches me, I can always PokéSAV things up!

Meh, don't Pokesav them. They'd be legit hacks, but still... =/ It's really hard at first (took me 3 hours to get my Suicune) but it's worth it. You shouldn't think that you'll be breeding some sweet 'mons right away. It takes a lot of practice, sometimes days before you can RNG something good (though now it's a whole lot easier because of Pikatimer). It's easier to RNG stationary legendaries like Suicune; maybe you should try that first.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on September 09, 2010, 12:28:11 PM
It's cheating in my book, but technically the game is not being tampered with in any way...

You're just abusing the conditions... Which is not as bad as PokeSav.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Jub3r7 on September 09, 2010, 04:05:46 PM
Meh, Ir eprefer breeding methods and EV training.... although I haven't really done that, lol.
Oh yeah, since I'm the newbie, I have a question.
Pokemon A fights Pokemon B with 2 speed EV's. Pokemon C is holding an experience share. When Pokemon A beats Pokemon B, do Pokemon A and Pokemon C each get 2 speed EV's?

Title: Re: General Pokémon

Of course we go through EV training! I probably do it more than others. I decided to try the more legit way of RNG to get some good Pokémon from the field, instead of checking a few boxes, holding down L and R and then catching the pokémon... you have to be extremely precise when you do RNG mechanics... 1 second off and you can mess up big time

At least we're working hard to get our 'mons. I hate it when people are too lazy to try to breed and just Pokesav them 'cause that the easy way around.

Part of the reason it feels so accomplishing to get a shiny Pokemon or perfected breeding Pokemon WITHOUT Pokesav is the work that it took to get it.... I've personally never used any hacking devices (or game code reading devices), EXCEPT one time when Rogbzz gave me a chance to catch Shaymin using the walk-anywhere, since I missed the mystery gift. I killed it (and turned the game off). So technically, it's as if I never used one. Oh, and in case if your wondering who Rogbzz is.... Well, just tell me when any of you reach Hearthome city. Then I'll make a semi-rpg post about how the guy that walks you around town takes you to see me, where I tell you my life story (lol) and how so many of my Pokemon died....

If you want me to name it, I will, but I'd rather keep it a surprise for now. ;)

Until I get it right...

Also, Pokémon Sunday didn't really have many prospects, even though Junichi Masuda appeared...

Here's a Synposis of what Masuda confirmed:
The design team had been working on the games for four years.
No pre-Generation V Pokémon are available until after the National Pokédex has been obtained.
No previously introduced characters such as Professor Oak will be in the games.
Cheren and Bel are childhood friends.
The starter Pokémon is a gift from the player character's parent, rather than Professor Araragi.
Team Plasma Grunts use Minezumi.
Minezumi's Pokédex information was shown (below).
There is a Poké Mart inside a Pokémon Center.
Pokémon Trainer N has the cat-like Pokémon Choroneko.
Cut can be used to pass through a gate.
Makomo will give the player a C-Gear if they show her a Munna.
Victini was shown in battle.
New Pokémon were shown, including Desukaan (the mummy one), Denchura (the electric spider), Ononokusu (the tusk dragon), and Baoppu (the fire monkey) was seen as a silhouette.

Also, there was a scene from BestWishes showing Slowpoke dancing to Billie Jean, from Michael Jackson's Black or White

If people would've taken time to read through new posts they would've seen that Slow wanted to know if triple battles' mechanics are complicated. They would've also seen that you clarified them for him. No one would've said that. (at least I think so.)

isn't it A can only attack A and B, and C can only attack B and C?
whoooah triple battle.. it's so beautiful!! what does it mean?!??!

I think that's it... A and C can both attack 2 'mons and B can attack all of them.

Female 'mons are useless since they can't pass down egg moves. I stick to males one. And starters are overrated.
(That kinda sounds sexist but it's still true! xp)

Post by: SlowPokemon on September 26, 2010, 12:44:12 AM
I love Smoochum!

Tip: Either teach Jynx the TM Psychic, make it an Egg move, or don't evolve Smoochum until it learns it.

Because Jynx learns no Psychic-type moves. :(

Final moveset should go something like Psychic, Ice Beam, and then maybe for attack moves, Shadow Ball, Energy Ball, Wring Out, or Signal Beam; and for status moves, go with Calm Mind, Lovely Kiss (possible Dream Eater or Sleep Talk), or Sweet Kiss.

:)
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on September 26, 2010, 12:46:44 AM
I already know what I'm going to choose as Jynx's moveset:
Nasty Plot/Psychic/Ice Beam/HP Fire 70.
Should be something like that... might change it's HP type.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on September 26, 2010, 03:02:14 AM
It would be good to have a Water move, because Fire-types will destroy it.

And I looked on Bulbapedia, I didn't think it could learn Nasty Plot... So I suggested Calm Mind instead. I guess if you breed with a Toxicroak it could happen... :-\
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on September 26, 2010, 03:27:03 AM
You breed it with Hypno. No big deal. And a water-type move on Jynx? That's pure nonsense. Unless you're either retarded or just a brainless twat you WILL switch out on any threat you see. You also have to consider 2 things : Jynx is in the NU tier, it's rarely and never used in UU and OU respectively. Plus it has an excellent base speed of 95 meaning it can outspeed a lot of 'mons in NU.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Winter on September 26, 2010, 03:37:57 AM
What do UU OU and NU mean?
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Sekter77 on September 26, 2010, 03:55:22 AM
Basically they're just the names of the tier rankings given to groups of pokemon in the competitive battling community. NU stands for Never Used. UU is Under Used, and OU or Standard is Over Used. There's also an Uber tier reserved mostly for legendaries. Jynx being NU just means she's on the lowest tier compared with the others. For some more detailed info on tiers you should check Smogon's website. They are pretty much the largest and most committed pokemon battling community.

Weepinbell is the coolest. :3

I'm revealing my Platinum team right now--

GROTLE Lv23
PSYDUCK Lv23
GOLBAT Lv23 (I met this at Lv10, so I was like, "Cool I don't have to go through the annoying Zubat stage!")
BUNEARY Lv23 (AWW IT'S ADORABLE, and a Hasty nature makes its Speed even better)
GABITE Lv24 (my most recent addition, met at Lv19)

Thinking about Houndour for final Pokemon, since Ice-types will destroy Torterra, Crobat, and Garchomp.

Any suggestions?

Also, you guys don't need to reveal your teams, I just want suggestions.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on September 26, 2010, 06:33:27 PM
Well, Ill be nice and reveal one more!!

Prinplup Lv 28
Shellos Lv 28
Togepi Lv 1
Luxio Lv 27
Roselia Lv 26
Buizel Lv 23
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Jub3r7 on September 26, 2010, 07:24:25 PM
For some reason I never liked Shellos/Gastrodon....

Time to reveal my teams!
Pearl
Original Team: (all lvl. 80)
Torterra
Gyrados
Machamp
Staraptor
Palkia
Alakazam

New Team: (all lvl. 60)
Torterra (son (or grandson) of the original)
Empoleon
Infernape
Blissey
Salamence
Froslass

HeartGold teams (they died....)
Original team: (They were about level 40 something when they died...)
Feraligatr
Venomoth
Togekiss
Arcanine
Aerodactyl (traded from Pearl)
Dragonair

Poison Team (they were about level 30 when they died....)
Venomoth
Golbat
Haunter
Nidoking
Nidoqueen
Ariados/Riolu (The league I wanted to join allowed one Pokemon of a different type, I remembered that after training an Ariados....)

Prinplup Lv 28
Shellos Lv 28
Togepi Lv 1
Luxio Lv 27
Roselia Lv 26
Buizel Lv 23

That's a great idea in training two Water-types... then you can teach one Waterfall and another Surf and can gratify them with diverse movesets. Togepi for me was going to be an option to replace Golbat or Buneary, but it had Hustle rather than Serene Grace... which immediately turns me off to it.

However, I think you should get rid of either Buizel, Shellos, or Prinplup... Unless you want a Gym Leader setup to use at the Battle Tower! Because three of one type isn't normally a good idea. I'm inclined to tell you to rid yourself of Buizel since it is a pure Water-type and will not gain another type.

So, for my final Pokemon, you gave no suggestions! ;D

I'm considering:
Houndour
Pikachu
Rotom
Duskull
Gardevoir/Gallade
Alakazam
Mr. Mime
Blissey
Octillery
Weavile
Espeon
Magnezone
Porygon-z
Magmortar
Froslass
Absol

And I'm seriously considering replacing Torterra with:
Leafeon (now that you get Eevee in Hearthome)
Carnivine
Abomasnow
Tangrowth
Hippowdon
Mamoswine

Please help me narrow this down!!!

ALSO

I really love the move "Boiling Water"! The water move with 80 power and can cause a burn!

I saw that and it looks cool!!!

Umbreon is one of the coolest in design but sadly the worst in terms of movesets... perhaps it can be improved through TMs...

Leafeon is my favorite out of them, and also pretty good; probably the best physical sweeper of the family.

Espeon is probably the best in terms of Special Sweeper, Glaceon also works in this category.

Flareon, Jolteon, and Vaporeon work best when complemented by one another.

Wtf. Umbreon's moveset coupled with its typing and awesome defense makes it on of the best wall out there. I really don't get why you say that.

Since you are going to work on the actual game after the English translation, you feel more involved in it than any other game you have played.
Along with that, Shigeru Miyamoto and Satoshi Tajiri really did their best to make this a NEW generation, fresh and breathable, with NEW species, and NEW features that make the game feel fresh and anew.

My favorite Zelda game was Ocarina of Time, but my favorite game is Pokemon. In general.
And this post's subject is General Pokemon. What a coincidence!

Comparing an adventure/action game with a RPG's kinda pointless imho.

Yep. So, hold on. Are the Mario platformers also action/adventure? ???

Also. Playing Emerald. Sootopolis is like the best song ever! Not really, but it's good.

well Pokémon is an adventure game (i know some people who say it)... you do travel across the regions and follow a storyline.. seems adventurous to me!
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on October 12, 2010, 10:53:13 PM
It's technically an RPG. It may be adventurous, but it's not in the action/adventure category.

The difference? The way the game goes depends on you. :P
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on October 12, 2010, 10:54:13 PM
and that's why its an RPG... the experience is different between each player and how they perceive the game
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on October 12, 2010, 10:55:00 PM
Yep! That's also why I love the Mario and Luigi series! A good RPG is hard to beat. A bad RPG (95% of them) is just irritating.

It's obvious you're talking about video game RPG's, but...
A lot of RPG's are text-based, board game style, or D&D style. None of which involve videos...

Oh well, don't mind me. I'm just getting a little bit obsessive over this one text-based MUD I found...

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on October 13, 2010, 04:00:11 AM
I'm guessing HP's not an option since you probably have no idea what you're EVs are... unless there's a dude that tells you what type it is like in DPPt? I just use my IVs to find it out so I ain't sure. Anyways, as for your Raikou's moveset...

Thunderbolt's a given, Shadow ball too for some nice coverage. You could also go with Calm Mind and/or Substitute, those moves are always useful. Otherwise Charge beam can also be good if you want more stab. Usually it's just one Electric move but since you probably don't have HP Ice/Grass/Fighting you could go with that.

So yeah, I'd go for something like
TBolt/Charge Beam/Shadow Ball/CM or Sub
or
Tbolt/Shadow Ball/CM/Sub

Hope that helps.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on October 13, 2010, 11:14:58 PM
That would be HP Grass. Raikou's movepool lacks different typings so that's why we usually rely on it, but since you probably don't have it I don't think you can counter them.

My stupid idea:
If the double battle idea doesn't work, we could do some kind of tournament with different themes in mind.
For example, battles where only Pokemon of a certain type are allowed, with every battle being one-on-one.

Oh, and if the double battle does work, then you four can do it without me.
I don't want to force anyone else to be excluded from something like that, so... yeah.

Going through HeartGold again. Playing as a girl, used Lyra's Japanese name (Kotone). I named my rival Lyra, it's hilarious.

Anyway, I thought I'd make the game a real challenge by going through on a Grass starter solo run. Crap is this hard. Going into my third time facing Bugsy.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Shadoninja on November 05, 2010, 12:29:24 PM
I never really paid much attention to their themes. May have to take a listen.

Speaking of Gens, I noticed that Red is the only protagonist that does not have any mandatory interaction with the mother. the closest thing would be in FR/LG when the mother gives the running shoes to the aide to give to you after you beat brock.

Gold gets the pokegear from his mother and she also saves money for you.
Ruby has a few conversations about the father, tells you to change the time on the clock, and gives you running shoes.
Diamond gets a few messages about their rival and warnings not to go into the grass, tells them to thank rowan, and even finds out that she participates in contests.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on November 05, 2010, 12:32:04 PM
Yep, in the originals there WERE no running shoes, so there is no mandatory conversation--if you talk to her, she says, "Right...all boys leave home someday. It said so on TV."

-_-

Post by: Sekter77 on November 05, 2010, 05:47:30 PM
Not only is it strange that there is no mandatory interaction with the protagonist's mom, there's no reference whatsoever to a father for some reason. There's also the fact that these characters are 10 years old when they go off exploring an entire continent on their own!

Pokemon is actually really screwed up if you think about it. Just visit TV Tropes' Nightmare Fuel page for Pokemon and you'll find tons of examples.

Pokemon is actually really screwed up if you think about it. Just visit TV Tropes' Nightmare Fuel page for Pokemon and you'll find tons of examples.

You are absolutely right... Many people consider Ash's mom "overcaring". She wouldn't let him go on his own, if she would be a good mom... xD

Although the father has been a definite source of fan fiction.
http://mareodomo.com/#425319/Letters-To-An-Absent-Father (http://mareodomo.com/#425319/Letters-To-An-Absent-Father)

Red/Ash's father might possibly be the champion in some region far away.

A lot of people think that giovanni is his dad... *cough*

I didn't actually know that. But that's because I only really play the main games. I hardly know any of the expanded storylines.
But that's pretty cool! No wonder Ash is such a promising trainer. His dad took on the leader of basically the Pokemon Mafia!

You should have played them better! There's a guy in FireRed/LeafGreen who works for Team Rocket on Five Island warehouse--return after you beat the warehouse, and engage him in conversation. He says: "You...you're not Giovanni's kid, are you? Hmm, I guess not...Giovanni's kid has red hair."

I've seen the first three movies too. Looking back on them, they were really ridiculous, especially the first movie. It's weird how much more emotional they seemed when I was younger, but now they're just hokey. But I haven't seen a whole lot of the anime, just scattered episodes from Kanto and Johto which were also seen when I was younger.

Actually, most people in my dorm love pokemon too. It's never a faux pas to bring up your favorite 'mon. I'm lucky to be in a welcoming environment, but I'm sure if I moved to any other parts of campus I would be derided for it.

^True. Every single person who told me that Pokemon sucks/is stupid were huge fans back then.

Also, someone requested a battle on PO earlier today. I wasn't really paying attention 'cause I was doing something for gym class, but anyways. He was down to one 'mon and I had 3 left. He said something like "That's exactly how I wanted it to be. I'll be able to defeat you with only this Pokemon". He then proceeds to send Jaroda out. I let him kill my Machamp only to be able to switch to Heatran. I pwnt him. LOLZ

Something to discuss: (Yes, Slow, I know it's 1 day old)
Also, tons of Pokemon distributions for Pokemon Black and White.
Tabunne is being distributed in different Pokemon centers in Japan.
Different Pokemon eggs are being distributed.
Quote
The contents of these eggs will be one of three currently-unknown Pokémon. The one to be obtained will be selected at random.
The egg distribution will start the same day that Ash gets a Pokemon egg in the BW anime, along with the release of "Black and White collection" (TCG Expansion) in Japan.
Event-exclusive croagunk available with passwords from CoroCoro's November issue...
Passwords for Kanto starters will appear in an issue of Pokémon Peer...
Passwords for Hoenn starters appear in a player's guide that has yet to be released...
Passwords for Sinnoh starters will appear in the "Beginning Set" (TCG set).
Quote
From Sept. 18 to Nov. 1, fans could vote for a Pokémon that will be obtainable in the Pokémon Global Link.
Arceus won the dream-world poll, so that's another of the distributions.

might as well post some questions I had while playing pokemon red.

if bill was accidently combined with a pokemon, where does the pokemon go when you fix him?

how does the bike shop owner in cerulean city get business if all his
bikes cost 1 million pokedollars and he has bike vouchers?

why doesn't the celadon game corner sell or give away coin cases? where would you get them if it wasn't for the broke guy at the restaurant? speaking of the restaurant, why are they always on break?

what reason did silph co. have to develop a silph scope. was there a high demand for ghost sight seeing?
Title: Re: General Pokémon

speaking of the restaurant, why are they always on break?

And how do THEY do their business when you can't buy any food?

Seeing as he has a huge machine connected to a PC there, supposedly back to some storage system

how does the bike shop owner in cerulean city get business if all his
bikes cost 1 million pokedollars and he has bike vouchers?
My guess is that PokéDollars are either a trainer-only currency (hence why you can only buy Pokémon-related equipment with it), or it's worth next to nothing, so what you earn and lose in battles is only symbolic sums anyway (and all items are heavily subsidized, perhaps by a "trainer's license" that your mom takes care of paying). A million PokéDollars might not be that much for a "civilian". Seeing as very few trainers in the game own bikes (apart from bikers, who don't appear to be able to collapse their bikes, indicating that they might not be from the Bike shop), I guess the item is not really meant for trainers. Still, the shop owner looks like he respects trainers, and might hand out some vouchers to promising younglings for marketing (for instance, Rydel's bikes have his name plastered all over them), as the trainers travel all over the region with their bike. Look at it like sponsoring athletes.

why doesn't the celadon game corner sell or give away coin cases? where would you get them if it wasn't for the broke guy at the restaurant?
Perhaps there is an age limit on selling gambling equipment to minors in the Pokémon world, and some bureaucrat thought that it would be a sufficent protection if the Coin Case was prohibited for sale at the Game Corners. The Coin Case might be powered by the same container technology as the PC system (seeing as it can hold ten thousand coins and still only take up minor room in your backpack), and might therefore be patented. The guy in the restaurant either doesn't care (he's obviously tired of gambling and probably hates the place), or is to full/drunk that he doesn't realise what he's doing.

speaking of the restaurant, why are they always on break?
The woman at the desk is always on duty. Day on, day off. No breaks. She might be awfully tired (who wouldn't, apart from the seemingly brainwashed nurses in the Pokémon centres?), have a bad day, or hate kids. She justs wants to reject as many potential customers as possible, so she can get fired and get away. Thing is, her boss is so busy supplying the guys who have their eternal eating contest going that he doesn't realise that she does an intentionally crappy job

what reason did silph co. have to develop a silph scope. was there a high demand for ghost sight seeing?
I guess the media has covered the ghost sightings to such a degree that revealing what is behind them has become a prestige project. Silph co. obviously has too much money anyway (as evident by their overly large headquarters, with a fountain larger than the Sinnoh Lakes in the lobby), and some scientists have too much time on their hands.

Answers? All made up, of course...

Me and my brother are in roughly the same spot in Blue/Red. My team has undergone a few changes.

I've been to all the towns/cities except the Indigo Plateau.
I've battled all the routes, including water, except for the one right below Fuchsia City.
I've beaten four Gyms--Brock, Misty, Lt. Surge, Erika, and Koga (plus the Fighting Dojo).
My PokeDex is 37.
My team:
Venusaur Lv41
Pikachu Lv41
"Omy" Omastar Lv41
"Marmag" Magmar Lv41
"Kabra" Alakazam Lv41
Nidoqueen Lv 41

Moves:
Venusaur--Body Slam, Toxic, Leech Seed, Razor Leaf
Pikachu--Thunderbolt, Mega Punch, Thunder Wave, Agility (Pikachu sucks in RBY)
Omy--Water Gun, Withdraw, Horn Attack, Surf
Marmag--Ember, Leer, Confuse Ray, Strength (Magmar only knows Ember until Lv36 [Leer] and then 39 [Confuse Ray], then I taught it Strength)
Kabra--Teleport, Psychic, Recover, Psybeam (and it only learns one more move--Light Screen)
Nidoqueen--Surf, Body Slam, Scratch, Poison Sting (Scratch will be Earthquake)

Omastar can't learn any Rock moves in this game (:(), so Ice Beam is either going to it or Nidoqueen (no one else can learn it). Probably it because its Special is really high.

If you're interested, my brother has "Bulb" (Venusaur), "Shocker" (Raichu), Kabutops, Hitmonlee, "Rockey" (Golem), and "Nido" (Nidoking).

Please rate my team and stuff, etc.

I just want to say that those are all surprisingly plausible. I would never have been able to rationally explain all that stuff.
The biggest question for me in Pokemon is How do new pokemon keep getting discovered? As in, going back to Kanto in Gold and Silver had loads of new pokemon that weren't there in the previous games. Are they invasive species or something? How did they manage to stay under the radar for so long?

Uber late, but you have to consider that you won't be able to evole your Weepinbell before the E4 since the only Leaf stone you can have is given to you by Bill's grandfather. It's still good, but the fact that you can't evolve it in Johto's meh. Togepi's not that good, I think you should drop it. Gastly and Mareep ftw. I've never used Chikorita in GSC so I don't know if it's good or not but I guess it's okay. Also, I'd use Poliwhirl over Wooper/Quagsire but that's just me personal preference.


Also, I'm curious: Are any of you guys playing the Pokemon Trading Card game (not the vidya game version)?

I can't find anyone to play with me, it would be fun though. :(

And I haven't even played my Silver since I last posted that; still training Chikorita. Playing Emerald lately.

Also, Gastly sucks in pre-DP games because both Ghost and Poison types were physical.

Yes. In fact, me and my brother are putting together a deck with different legends that we got broke on buying off of ebay.
:/

When I got the Suicune/Raikou (part of it) in a booster pack, we bought the other half on ebay.
Then we got part of Dialga/Palkia legend in a booster pack... and did the same thing.


I get paid 50$ for working 2 days... and a theme deck costs about 12.50 where I got them...
I lost a whole weeks pay buying the four theme decks based on Espeon, Umbreon, Mamoswine, and Nidoking...

The next theme decks coming out are based on Lucario and Tangrowth. [/TCG rant]



I really need to finish reading the Pokemon manga. It's really awesome and slightly more violent.

Instead of standing and watching, the trainers have to actually fight thieves, too.
Koga was kind of evil, so one of the main characters killed his arbok; it looked like a sliced worm.

I was only on the yellow arc, so I had a LONG ways to go. :(

Plus, I've been reading Japanese translations so all the names are mixed up whenever I see them referred to in english...
Seeing as Green is now Blue and Blue is now Green. But Red is still Red and Yellow is still Yellow. [/Manga rant]

REST IN PEACE MY DEAD POKEMON. I WILL TRAIN THE LIVING POKEMON IN HONOR OF YOU. [/VG Rant]

I've never played the Trading Card Video game, although I've heard it was good... [/TCGVG Rant][/sub][/sub][/sub]

Is it bad to be obsessed?

You bought them off of ebay? How much did it cost you? Probably a lot more than they're worth.
I bought 5 booster packs today... got Mew prime which is worth a lot of money plus the top part of Entei/Raikou legend :D
Oh and theme decks are not that good... or so I heard.
Also, you shouldn't use legend in any deck. Their attacks usually are costly plus if they get KOed your opponent takes 2 prize cards instead of one which sucks.

Well, actually, it wasn't killed, as Nintendo has stated that Pokémon never die in battles. They might, in some cases, severely maim each other, but never kill. Apparently, the wounds regrow quite fast, but the Pokémon at the receiving end of the attack will be unable to fight for a looooong time if not treated correctly (see Deoxys in Destiny Deoxys, who took a Hyper Beam from Rayquaza at point-blank range, but rose from the water ready to fight after four years).

Ah, some reverse reverse psychology going on, eh?

Anyway, I will be getting black. Just because I decided that before I knew what any of the version exclusives were, and my brother same with white. But I actually like most if not all of the version exclusives in black better than those in white.

My current problem now... Im debating whether I should sell my DSi XL in preparation for the 3DS and just get that.

I think I can make back a decent profit and all.

My question is... should I sell it?? My problem is that I only have one DS up here, so I'll be without Pokemon BW until I get the 3DS

Oh the dilemma

Why don't you wait until like the week before 3DS comes out to sell your DSi XL?

I know I'm going to trade in my DSi soon to Gamestop or something; it's pretty useless because A) The L and R buttons don't work, even AFTER sending it in for fixing (only cost like five or ten bucks, but still) B) The stylus recently went missing C) I have a perfectly good DS Lite.

They have really used up all their imagination by now.

And yes, I agree with you. You covered a good chunk of the "normal" Pokémon, but have a look at the legendaries as well:

Genesect/Genosect is just like Mewtwo. An ancient, powerful Pokémon who got an upgrade.

Tornadus, Thundurus and Landorus are powerful genies who roam around and play some significance to something. Just like Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres.

Victini is Mew. Just like Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy and Shaymin were.

The rest of the legendaries, however, follow the formula of the fourth generation, with two big dragons (and a trio master), two legendary trios (the aforementioned genies plus the Musketeers), and another event-only Pokémon (Meloetta). Keldeo is a nice new touch, though.

They already said that when they mentioned that the Unova region was far away.

*sigh* And that gave us... Vanilluxe?

Well, it's original, at least. I think an ice cream (vanilla flavour, even) is better than just copying existing designs and change their colour (Ariados=Galvantula) or just copy an existing design, change nothing, and pretend it's new (see Glameow up there).
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on February 06, 2011, 12:05:05 AM
Do you know why they did that? Because they wanted the game to have a more American feel to it since the Unova region is based on NYC. Seriously, stop complaining, those 'mons are not that bad. Denchura would've been a fire type spider and you would've complained that OGAWD THEY COPIED ARIADOS!!11!1oneone Of course it reminds you of Ariados, they both are based on spiders. It's as stupid as saying that Roopushin is a pale copy of Machamp or that Nageki/Dageki are pale copies of Hitmonlee/Hitmonchan.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Cobraroll on February 06, 2011, 12:33:19 AM
Oops, didn't mean to turn this into a debate.

All I say is that I'm a little disappointed with the creativity here. Not only are some (but mind you, not all!) of the new Pokémon strikingly similiar to the old ones in build, but also in pose when it comes to artwork. Look at Buffalon/Tauros' legs, for example.

To your credit, I have to back down on the spiders. Upon researching, I realise that Ariados and Denchura/Galvantula are based on different species of spiders (jump spiders and tarantulas, respectively), and that a Denchura in motion would be drastically different from a walking Ariados. Still, I find it a shame that they put them in identical poses for the official artwork. The fact that they use two of the same colours doesn't help too much either. Credit to the designers for basing Bachuru on an obscure species of spiders, though.

Roopushin/Conkeldurr (honestly, who doesn't love the English name they gave it?) is cool, I think. Stat-wise, similiar to Machamp, but then again, so is Crawdaunt if you want to look at it that way, so it's not much of an issue. However, I think that basing a Pokémon on a construction worker is somewhat... obscure, but if they want to remain original, they need to come up with new design bases. Hence we get construction workers and ice creams. As I said, I prefer that to copying old designs. After all, most of the "obvious" design bases were taken already in the first and second generations, and most of them have been reused once or twice since then (five times for electric rodents).

Plus its English name DOESN'T suck; therefore, Cofagrigus = Out Of The Spotlight.

"For those of you with Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold or SoulSilver, the Legendary Trio of Johto WiFi event has just begun. This event, originally announced for Europe is available for download with European games as well as American and Australian games allowing for everyone to have it. For this week, the event allows the download of Raikou. This will last until February 13th 2011 so get it while you can. These beasts, when transferred to Pokémon Black & White, allow you to get Zoroark."

I don't really think it's a challenge to breed for a shiny 'mon when you're not RNG'ing, you just need luck. Even with the Masuda method the odds are only about 1/2000 something. So yeah. Plus I don't care about shininess, I just want perfect IVs. Shininess is cool when 'mons look great when shiny (Shellder, Skorupi, Absol) otherwise I don't care.

You lead with Ambipom and you don't even use Fake Out? Wait wat?

Really? Fake out is a must on Ambipom, so you definitely want to use that, Plus it gets stab, so yea.
Mind games are important when you battle. You have to think about what your opponent is going to do next (i.e switch, what move, etc.) so you can counter its moves. Ya must practice.

according to serebii:

"As stated above, Pokémon Black & White are DSi Enhanced. As such, they will only work on DSis of the same region as the game. However, despite this, there are a variety of new features exclusive to the DSi. First is the Xtransceiver which does allow for voice and video chat between up to 4 friends locally and 1 friend over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. In addition to this, Pokémon Black & White are capable of connecting to the Internet via the WPA encryption as opposed to previous games only being able to connect to WiFi through no encryption, or WEP.
The games can be played on any model of DS"

A short opinion by me about the general state of Pokémon at the dawn of the fifth generation. I think this belongs in this thread, as it's in no way "news":

Where to start? Well, guess I can skip straight to the point: I feel more and more like Game Freak is trying ot completely "restart" Pokémon with Black & White, and distancing the franchise from the first four generations. It seems like the older generations take a back seat, the old Pokémon being more like bonus materiel in the new games, and new Pokémon taking over the established roles of old ones.
For a start, take one of the first things revealed about the Unova region: It is located far away from the other regions, reflecting America more than Japan. The short time span between the Japanese and international releases, the web connections, etc, all means that these games are meant to be more "international" than the others, catering to a global audience and focusing less on Japanese culture and legends. It's also a convenient way to distance itself from the elements and characters from the first generations:

Look at the Animé. For a start, Ash got a new look, for no reason whatsoever. Not only a change in clothing, but his face changed too, and the vivid colours are toned down. Predictably enough, after Sinnoh, he decided to ditch his old Pokémon, lobotomize Pikachu and head for a new region. However, this time he's ditching Oak as well, sending his Pokémon to professor Juniper instead. Only the sixth generation will tell if this is staying, but I'm worried already. How long before it's never mentioned again that Ash is from Pallet, or his mother/Oak moving to Unova? The latter is unlikely, but still...

Then, the case of new Pokémon in old roles. For a moment, let's forget the ever-present Pidgey, Rattata and Pikachu clones; they have become a tradition at this point.

I mean, how can you think "Nurse Joy" without an image of a Chansey by her side (or a lovestruck Brock, may he return ASAP)? Well, Game Freak wants to teach you how: Meet Audino.
What if I say "All-male Fighting Pokémon, constantly sparring and training martial arts"? Some will picture the classic Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee, while Black and White give us Throh and Sawk.
"Annoying bat jumping at you for every other step you take in a cave"? Zubat, Golbat, ooooor... yeah, Woobat and Swoobat.
"Annoying jellyfish jumping at you for every other step you take in the sea"? Tentacool has always been a staple here... until Frillish came along
"Huge, bulky Pokémon valued at construction sites due to their immense strength. Have to be traded to evolve". Machop or Conkeldurr, the choice is yours (at the moment). Here are a few more:

"Pokémon created by human carelessness, living and thriving in the pollution of large cities"
"Tapir-based Psychic Pokémon feeding off dreams"
"Tadpole-like Pokémon living in ponds"
"Bull Pokémon roaming the great plains"
"Weak fish Pokémon found everywhere you can surf or fish"
Smogon sums it up greatly here: http://www.smogon.com/smog/issue14/firstvsfifth
Also, it's important to note that the generation V Pokédex is the only one not to have any Pokémon from other generation related to it by evolution.

Last, I'd like to point out that the Pokémon World Championship only allows Unova Pokémon to be used this year. That's right, kids, forget the old and bring in the new.
With all the backwards compability of the games nowadays, it's likely that Game Freak will use the Generation V Pokémon primarily in the future, and keep the older ones as "history" for new players. As in, they are compatible with the new games, and some can be found directly in them as well, but they will have as little to do with the storylines as possible.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on March 11, 2011, 10:33:11 PM
A short opinion by me about the general state of Pokémon at the dawn of the fifth generation. I think this belongs in this thread, as it's in no way "news":

Where to start? Well, guess I can skip straight to the point: I feel more and more like Game Freak is trying ot completely "restart" Pokémon with Black & White, and distancing the franchise from the first four generations. It seems like the older generations take a back seat, the old Pokémon being more like bonus materiel in the new games, and new Pokémon taking over the established roles of old ones.
For a start, take one of the first things revealed about the Unova region: It is located far away from the other regions, reflecting America more than Japan. The short time span between the Japanese and international releases, the web connections, etc, all means that these games are meant to be more "international" than the others, catering to a global audience and focusing less on Japanese culture and legends. It's also a convenient way to distance itself from the elements and characters from the first generations:

Look at the Animé. For a start, Ash got a new look, for no reason whatsoever. Not only a change in clothing, but his face changed too, and the vivid colours are toned down. Predictably enough, after Sinnoh, he decided to ditch his old Pokémon, lobotomize Pikachu and head for a new region. However, this time he's ditching Oak as well, sending his Pokémon to professor Juniper instead. Only the sixth generation will tell if this is staying, but I'm worried already. How long before it's never mentioned again that Ash is from Pallet, or his mother/Oak moving to Unova? The latter is unlikely, but still...

Then, the case of new Pokémon in old roles. For a moment, let's forget the ever-present Pidgey, Rattata and Pikachu clones; they have become a tradition at this point.

What if I say "All-male Fighting Pokémon, constantly sparring and training martial arts"? Some will picture the classic Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee, while Black and White give us Throh and Sawk.
"Annoying bat jumping at you for every other step you take in a cave"? Zubat, Golbat, ooooor... yeah, Woobat and Swoobat.
"Annoying jellyfish jumping at you for every other step you take in the sea"? Tentacool has always been a staple here... until Frillish came along

I don't know why you sound so disdainful. Pretty much all of the things you mentioned are an improvement. Fifth generation is way better than the fourth and third, and it's right up there with the second.

Post by: Cobraroll on March 11, 2011, 10:58:39 PM
^I haven't played the games yet, so I don't know if it will turn out any better or worse, but I still feel that they shouldn't just "replace" all the old Pokémon with new ones, if you get what I mean. It's like they "kick out" the ones who have filled certain roles since the first generation, put in some new and suspiciously similiar ones instead, and pretend the old ones never did anything but just existing. I know keeping track of almost 650 Pokémon is a hard task, but I feel that they shouldn't forget all the old ones.

I know it's better marketing to milk the new Pokémon for all they're worth, then create some more when people start losing interest, though, so sticking to the traditions makes no sense from a business perspective... still, it makes me sad. No matter how you word it, Poliwag is better than Tympole, Pidgey curb-stomps Pidove any day, Woobat is a silly excuse for a Zubat, etc. Yes, I will learn to love the fifth gen. Pokémon one day too, but in my heart, there's nothing like the original 151. Seeing Sentret and eventually Zigzagoon take Rattata's place saddened me, as I knew they were essentially the same Pokémon, but the concept eventually grew on me. Same with the birds of the respective regions, but when they extend this and put in new Pokémon for every role in the games, I die a little inside... a little pick and mix wouldn't have hurt, would it? Sure, I too am annoyed by always meeting Zubat and Tentacool, but who's to say they are the only Pokémon in four generations that can inhabit their respective caves and seas en masse?*

Also, I forgot something in my last post: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Pok%C3%A9mon_by_Unova_Pok%C3%A9dex_number
These are the new Pokémon (yes, spoiler alert and all that) listed up. Do anyone else thing that after Zoroark, as listed, the Pokémon become more original (with the exception of Emolga)? It seems like they've put the old and used concepts at the top half of the Pokédex, and the original concepts at the bottom...

*Yes, I know that you technically can blame Woobat's type advantage over Zubat to explain how there are no Zubat in Unova, but Staryu never expelled Tentacool from the seas... Though Staryu are dwelling at the bottom of the oceans, while Tentacool float on the surface.... bah! Can't make a logically sound argument!

I can see where you're coming from there! (BTW the Pokemon have been out for like a few weeks now...just so you know... you don't have to worry about spoilers)

I truthfully think Blitzle is the bigger Pikachu copy than Emolga... Blitzle is just overused. xD Nothing wrong with it...but it is overused. So is Darmanitan.

Minccino... <3 I think it's my new favorite Unova Pokemon.

Also, I exclude Vanillite's family from the cool designs... though I suppose it was "original"... xD

Minor bump here...

Anyway, I need some help on B/W: Namely, the Battle Subway. I've got a few questions:
1) Does a victory on a Super Line yield more BP than the 3 you get for beating the Normal Line?
2) Anybody know about a good strategy/combo for Double Battles? I am currently leading with Krookodile and Gyarados (Intimidate + immunity to Earthquake), with Chandelure and special orientated Lucario as backup. It works, but I rarely have the margins on my side, and I feel that the team in general is too slow. Do you have any better suggestions? I currently do not have access to the Internet on my DS (thus no Dream World Pokémon, or trading for that matter, so I can only use Pokémon you can find on White).

Thanks in advance!

1.Yes , it starts at 5 BP and goes up by 1 every 7  battles you win

2. Your team is very well thought our for Doubles and it's much better than mine(Tyranitar, Garchomp, Excadrill and Stramie all spamming Surfs and Earthquakes)There is an interesting combo for the battle subway. Spiritomb/Sableye and Shedninja. Simply use Skill Swap with each other and congradulations! You can now beat any trainer on the Battle Subway.This is for people who don't want to risk losing and don't mind the shame.(I don't recommend this method for Wi-Fi or Competitive battleing as your opponent may turn their DS/Emulator Off)

Finally beat the Super Double Train (once)!

Leading with Lum Berry Hydreigon and Expert Belt Krookodile, with Lucario and Gyarados as backup seemed to do the trick. Would probably be better if I got a Krookodile with a proper Nature and EVs, though. Raising at random with a Bold nature isn't exactly the best way to train a Krookodile. Should probable have replaced Lucario as well, as my current team have three Pokémon weak to Fighting, and Lucario is both fragile and slow.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Cobraroll on May 12, 2011, 06:15:14 PM
Wrong nature (I used it in-game, and didn't want to roll around Challenger's Cave for eternities finding a Riolu with the right nature), and not proper EV training makes a Lucario slow. I got one with a Quiet nature, which meant good Sp.Atk, but terrible Speed. It wasn't until later I started to look for proper natures and stuff, and I haven't bothered to train "doubles" yet.

Timid nature
31/31/31/31/31/30 HP Ice 70
Egg moves: Wish
Hatch location: Lighthouse
Meant to be a Jolteon.

If you guys want a copy of one of my Eevees just hit me up so we can trade. They are on my HG cartridge though.
Oh and if you have ideas for hatch locations then please tell me. Some are obvious, like Glaceon @ Ice Path, but I'm not sure about where I should hatch the others.

Hey Nebbles, it's hard to remember if you can just remember one thing: it's not the MOVES that are physical/special, it's the types. :P Here:

The move will be special if you use a move that is type:
Fire
Water
Electric
Grass
Ice
Psychic
Dragon
Dark

It will be physical if you use a move that is type:
Normal
Fighting
Poison
Ground
Flying
Bug
Rock
Ghost
Steel

I just had an epiphany! You know how in Pokémon B/W the back sprites of each Pokémon is super-pixely, even somewhat reminiscent of the days of Red/Blue sprites? Well I was thinking, when the enhanced Pokémon "Gray" version (title pending) comes out, the guys at Game Freak should re-do all the back sprites at high resolution, so that way when the camera zooms in on your Pokémon, it doesn't look like a pixely mess.

Yeah, I wonder how it'll change the metagame.

And the game looks really interesting, hopefully it'll be released here.

Edit: Trailer. Looks awesome. I'd definitely buy it if it were released here. And considering it's Pokémon and Pokémon games sell here, I think we may be able to play.

Wonder Guard!
Or yet better, Drought!
Or maybe Air Lock would be better. Negates whatever bad weather it currently is.
Adaptability would be cool as well. Changing one's cellular structure to perform better in the given environment.
No Guard would mean that you could never fail. That would be kinda awesome.
Levitate... nifty indeed.
Illuminate could be handy as well. Unless you're in the military, that is.
White Smoke... Because who doesn't want to be surrounded by smoke?
Imposter would just be boring. Never able to be oneself except when alone.
In a city like this, Rain Dish would have been a fantastic trait to have.
Immunity has the potential to be cool too. Eat whatever you want; it won't kill you.

I think Own Tempo would be more like not taking notice of what's happening around you. It's not that you understand everything, or have infinite knowledge, you're more like Goofy, too dumb to realize how dumb he really is. But he's still a very happy and carefree guy.

Also, Inner Focus might suck in the games, but in reality it would be quite nice. Complete mastery of the situation, never letting anything put you off.

Overcoat falls in the same category. Weather's bad? No problem.

Speed Boost... well, guess it could be useful unless your perception of time slows down as your speed increases. So that a boring math class of 45 minutes is percieved as lasting four hours.

Heatproof... I'd imagine it affecting your skin somewhat, but it makes up for it by making you able to withstand high temperatures better.

It was very nice for trading, but for general use I didn't bother with it and having it turned off left it blank. That's such a waste. I much prefer the menus in heartgold for example, having that quick access to stuff that I would use more often. What they could probably do would probably just have the C-Gear as a seperate button/menu.

Post by: garlicbananas on February 26, 2012, 08:54:19 PM
I was really hoping they would make it for the 3DS.  It seems that the limits of the DS's capabilities have been reached.  I do hope that they take some risks with these because frankly there needs to be a big change to the pokemon formula, even if it's something like 3D character models.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Cobraroll on February 26, 2012, 08:59:24 PM
^Why would they need to change the tried and true formula? After all, their target market is kids aged 5-12, those who started playing some time after Ruby/Sapphire were released. If us "old-schoolers" could keep playing with the same formula for two or three generations before giving in, sure the kids born after the turn of the millennium can too.

There is no money in trying to cater the franchise to the people who grew up with the games, simply put. New games are released for new players.

Thus, I doubt we'll ever see R/B/Y remade again. There is only so much you can earn by catering to nostalgia.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Nebbles on February 26, 2012, 09:01:41 PM
Why the hell would they remake RBY anyway? It's already been remade.

Title: Re: General Pokémon

I am strongly against Pokemon 3DS games at this point. Black and White were the most polished, best, closest to perfect Pokemon games so far; I don't think the formula should be changed. The 3DS does not seem suited for main series Pokemon games and wouldn't have much more to offer beyond Spotpass. I hope for RSE remakes soon.

Well, while that may be unlikely, I think it's very likely that N'll show up, since as far as I've heard the Black Kyurem and White Kyurem are the mascots for Black 2 and White 2 respectively.  Assuming they're actually some sort of fusion between Zekrom + Kyurem/Reshiram + Kyurem, you'd have to get the dragon N has.

They should seriously make another game that caters to a target market of 13+, with a new story type (like you have a profession to earn money... you don't get money by beating trainers), bur you still have to go get the 8 Badges and stuff. It should definitely be much more friendly to those who had RBY.

2) I usually only play them to compete with my friends.

Or that Gamefreak finally decided to make a legitimate sequel, and not just a repeat of the first two games in the generation.

That's not confirmed yet. It could very well be a remake.

And seeing how it has "2" in the title, I'm inclined to believe it's a sequel.

Guys, I have a crazy idea, and its something I noticed about the newly revealed Pokémon games...notice how the two logos are Blue and Red...remind anyone of a set of remakes that we've been waiting for? I'm sure these sequels will have some form of a remake inside their covers... :D

Just an observation :)

Maybe. Perhaps, the protagonist will have traveled outside of Unova for whatever reason.

That's not confirmed yet. It could very well be a remake.

Why would they make a remake with the title "Black and White 2"?  Assuming you mean remakes like the third games, then there is no reason for them to be titled like like this. These aren't tentative titles, these are the actual titles.  Why would they give them this name if they planned on them being just normal third(technically third and fourth) versions?
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Nebbles on February 28, 2012, 04:20:41 AM
And also, why would they remake something a year later on the same console...?

Title: Re: General Pokémon

Regardless, I'm pretty sure these are sequels... not saying anything for definite, but still. I doubt they're remakes.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: spitllama on February 28, 2012, 04:38:27 AM
Yah it's too early to decide. It's really suspicious that they'd alter the usual trend of just picking another color/element for the third game. "2" would usually refer to a sequel, movie or game. Yet at the same time it's a bit soon to have already made an entirely new story rather than just alter the game like usual. It could just be a marketing ploy.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Nebbles on February 28, 2012, 04:42:49 AM
I think sequel makes a little more sense... just because it's not one game like remakes usually are.

I dunno. We need more info.

They could have been working on it while working on Black and White.  Iirc, Black and White were being worked on before HGSS even came out.  That'd also explain the super!early release date.

Edit: Also, you guys do know we'll get information about the games way before they come out, right? No reason to wait for the games to actually come out.
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on February 28, 2012, 04:53:23 AM
Definitely remakes, I'd guess they've been working on this since BW came out, hence the short waiting period. At the moment I'd wager they're working on the next big thing. :X I'll get one anyway though. BW were great enough for me to get a director's cut.

A lot of people think that the game's gonna be Unova + Hoenn, because of the airport in Idon'trememberthename's city + the names of the games are in red and blue. I mean it could makes sense, but I guess we'll see.

It could be Red/Blue, because I remember the rival's music being remixed for the world champion battle.
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Title: Re: General Pokémon

Hopefully they'll be longer even if they're not with another region. And some sort of Battle Frontier would be great.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on February 28, 2012, 03:42:33 PM
Haha yeah, it'd be fun. That and move tutors. Usually they appear in the third installment of the generation so hopefully there will be a battle frontier in B2W2.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Funktastic~! on February 28, 2012, 05:59:45 PM
I doubt it'll be Red and Blue.  The red and blue colors most likely refer to Zekrom(electric) and Reshiram(fire).

I do hope there's a Battle Frontier though.

Well, most of the world just found out now, you guys already have posted several pages about it (http://www.pokemon.co.jp/ex/b2w2/?a001=msign), and no, I won't read all the pages. I'm lazy nowadays

About the poll, I'm too broke for now, and I'm pretty sure that Grey will be for the 3DS, which gives me a good enough reason to wait

If confirmed, give me a link. Seeing as the same company that registered the domain for BW registered one for grey, I'm pretty sure it will come.
With the research of mine, I've noticed how many that believes that grey will come for 3DS, and I don't see why it shouldn't really. Makes perfect sense to me

Gamefreak registers them just in case.  For example, people thought Platinum would be called Opal because they bought the domain name for it.

I know that a lot of people think that there won't be one because Nobunaga's Ambition isn't as popular in the west as it is in Japan, but with Pokemon added to it, I think there'll be good enough sales.  Plus, it's selling well enough in Japan.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Roz~ on March 25, 2012, 05:02:15 PM
Yep, that's what I think too. It'll sell just because of the Pokemon part. And it might be appealing to those who enjoy RTS games too. The gameplay reminds me of Final Fantasy Tactics, and I loved that game.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on April 13, 2012, 03:43:14 AM
I personally liked the original BW trainer designs...the girl this time is cute but the boy's hair is so ridiculous... and I don't like how they look younger :P I liked the "older trainer" look better. These strike me as what GS was to RB--adding to the region, set a couple years later.

As to the 300 'mons in the regional dex--some new ones (like GS)? Or (more likely) a mix of all the regions? And if the second one is so, which ones would you like to see return?

Is it still Unova... from what it looks like, it has some different buildings and layouts.

I know Eevee and Larvitar are in there... which is good enough for me.

Double-post.
Apprently, Pokemon Conquest takes place in the "Ransei" region, and apprently has a mix of all pokemon from Kanto/Johto/Hoenn/Unova, but I don't see Sinnoh pkmn... *continues the search*...

ADD: It's a mixed game with pkmn and nobunga's ambition (whatever that is) *continues searching*...

ADD AGAIN: about the location of the "ransei" region: well we know kanto/johto are together, in the center of pokéarth (don't ask), and hoenn is southwest of them, and the islands that you visit in kanto (i'm not sure as well in johto) are directly south of them, and then sinnoh is way off from all of them, east-bound from kanto/johto, and finally we have the the unova region, which I dont know at the moment where it is, having not played it yet. but as for pokemon conquest...... I have the feeling it's going to be somewhere northeast of kanth/johto, but correct me if i'm wrong/think i'm wrong. *stops searching*

Concerning the BW2 Unova map...

It's not a layer of frozenness. Look at the image (here (http://images.serebii.net/corocoro4122big.jpg)). See Skyarrow Bridge? Or how the layer of "ice" doesn't even remotely follow the contours of the terrain?

A theory posted on Smogon proposed that it might be the picture that is frozen over, to cover revamped areas, and that more of it will thaw away the closer we get to release. In other words, the map will be posted again in the future, this time with ice covering a little less, revealing a new area or something.

I also like the idea of starting in the southwest corner of the map.

Oh, and throwing this in here:

Actual subway, anyone? The lines appear to go somewhere. Might be more stations that we can go to as the story progresses? And that the last line will go to a Battle Frontier, having taken over the purpose of the Battle Subway in B/W?

Yeah! That map in the background seems to have a town south of Driftveil! But how was that not in BW? Is Game Freak gonna be like, "Lol guys here's a town that's never beeen discovered before! It just happened to be there all this time! With out anyone noticing! How mysterious!"

OR THE COULD BE LIEK: "OMG GUYS THE COLD STORAGE TOTALLY HID THIS TOWN FROM US WITH ALL ITS ICE! WE DIDN'T NOW IT WAS THERE AT ALL AND WE ARE SHOCKED TO DISCOVER IT!" *End caps excitement.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: DrP on April 13, 2012, 06:38:28 PM
I just think the picture is frozen over. I dont think that the region is fully frozen over... especially since the north would have the propensity to be frozen over (as Driftveil City gets flurries and Iccirus City gets all that snow, but Nacrene City isn't affected)

GBA, kinda yes. GB, no.

You'll have to import your gba pokemon to one of the DS Pokemon games and then trade.

...Meaning you need either a DS Phat or DS Lite, since none of the newer DS's have GBA slots.

The other shinies (electivire, ninetales, charizard, jirachi, manaphy, arceus, spiritomb, cyndaquil, oddish, totodile, scizor, chimchar, etc.) were traded to me.

I, ahem, spent my entire life one summer and beyond getting a certain shiny in SoulSilver. It happens to be a shiny Lugia. I swear I could go through that dungeon part with my eyes closed. It took such. a. long. time. I love it though. Everybody accuses me of cheating though.

Did you know that there is about a 1 in 8000 chance of getting a shiny Pokemon? That means that you would (mathematically/theoretically) have to battle a certain Pokemon over 8000 times to get it in shiny. . . I'm so glad I wasn't counting tries.

In Pearl, I've got a Kricketune, and I found a Lotad in Emerald.

In my opinion, the more shiny Pokémon you have, the less special they are. That's why I've never actively hunted for them.

The one shiny Pokemon that I have (shiny Golem) was because I used to not have a life and just spend time on the GTS and try to trade people for shiny Pokemon.  I got sooo close to trading this guy my Charizard for his shiny Spiritomb.  I was soo pissed off. 

And my best friends caught 3 shiny Pokemon IN A ROW!!!  (Spheal, Doduo, and Geodude I think) They did not use a gameshark1

Finished my stunfisk-only run. Overall it was easy because BW gives you a lot of trainers to battle for exp and a lot of monies if you equip an amulet coin. I think I ended up with like 200,000+ pokemonies. As for using stunfisk, being weak to grass, water, ice, and ground really really really sucks. Not being to hit grass types until you get bounce(lulz) or sludge bomb makes the early game suck. I have video of the final battle with dennis recorded but it needs a bit of editing.

Dunsparce is NOT a bad Pokemon. I don't know why everyone thinks that; it's a beast in competition and pretty much the most annoying Pokemon in the game--it can paralyze ground types with Glare, get an extra chance for flinch and the like with Serene Grace, the list goes on and on.

Shado once beat the shit out of me with a team of six Dunsparce @_@' The memories...the horrible memories....

Post by: Kman96 on August 15, 2012, 10:42:44 PM
So I had a thought- so yeah, they're making sequels to Black and White, but what if they are they replacement of the remakes,so instead of having one third version, they'd have two!

Also on that note, instead of remaking ruby and sapphire, they could just remake Emerald instead! That way they kind of switch in a way.

They normally remake two games of the original series, and have a singular third version, but what if this time they have two third versions and only one remake of a third version of an earlier Gen!? I think it's plausible.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: SlowPokemon on August 15, 2012, 11:06:07 PM
^They ARE taking the place of "remakes" which is good as BW are the best they can be, in my opinion.

And while it's a good suggestion, they'll never do it because with remaking Ruby AND Sapphire, they'll make a LOT more money than they would simply remaking Emerald. Say what you will, Game Freak does exist to make money.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Shadoninja on August 15, 2012, 11:19:09 PM
Dunsparce (http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/206.shtml) has a very good level up moves and a wide TM movepool. It gets yawn and roost too which is badass.
Drifloon's (http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/425.shtml) okay. It'll have problems with normals, especially normals with a high defense since the only level up moves that can hit normal, minus explosion which is stupid for a solo-run, will be running off of it's slightly lower attack stat.
Luvdisc (http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/370.shtml) has a pretty barren movepool that doesn't have much in the way of coverage making it a perfect contender for a let's play-style run.
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Fire-types would probably be easiest as it gets rollout early and ancientpower and dig later. It also learns water pulse by TM which is pretty cool.
Grass would be second easiest because of ice beam/blizzard and flamethrower/fire blast. I don't know how easy it is to get those TMs in the game you're playing in.

Can't decide to do solo run in Diamond with Smeargle, Ditto (even possible?), Castform, Spiritomb, Nincada (does this mean I get to have Shedinja and Ninjask? :D), or Riolu.

Bleh why do I like all the sucky Pokemon?

Also in solo runs can you evolve or is that frowned upon?
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Kman96 on August 16, 2012, 08:25:55 PM
I think Spiritomb. Eric and I have a special Spiritomb that you could use. You'll be invincible. ;)

It's shiny, and has "wonderguard" as the ability, making any attack that isn't super-effective against it uneffective. Which means you can't be touched. Except for some exceptions...

I had to beat his "Wondertomb" in order to be able to have it (I cloned it, so I gave it back), and so I used a six-man team against it. Unfortunately, he had just the one Spiritomb, so I pulled out a lv.100 Arceus with Perish Song. Hit the Spiritomb, and I just switched out every now and then until it was dead. Eric had to honor our agreement, so now I have an invincible Spiritomb. I think it'd be great to see a solo run with an invincible Spiritomb.

EDIT:...Shit, I just realized that it's at lv. 100. Damn it.

Post by: Nebbles on August 16, 2012, 09:32:05 PM
I think in solo runs, you generally don't evolve them. That's the purpose and adds to the challenge.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Bespinben on August 17, 2012, 08:09:37 PM
I have a theory. I believe Bidoof's Wish is how you became a Pokemon. Sure Darkrai attacked you mid-time travel, but that should've only wiped your memory, at worst (like Palkia did to Darkrai in the post-game). As such, I believe, along with Darkrai wiping your memory, Jirachi turned you into a Pokemon so that Bidoof could have a pal/mentor, since by no means could a human possibly be that, with the communication barrier and all.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Bubbles on August 17, 2012, 08:17:18 PM
But darkrai wouldn't have wanted grovyle and you to stay together, and grovyle had no way of knowing who you were if you were a Pokemon. I think Bidoofs wish just either made you meet your partner or help you join the guild. Otherwise it makes Bidoof look like the bad guy
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: FSM-Reapr on August 17, 2012, 08:28:48 PM
My theory is that Bidoof's wish made Primal Dialga. That's why the human had to come to the past to save the world.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Nebbles on August 17, 2012, 08:34:32 PM
Well, Bidoof wished for a partner... and we know Darkrai messed up you and Grovyle's travel to the past, to prevent the world being saved. And at the present, time is already out of whack, so Primal Dialga is already there and getting worse. So Jirachi probably had something to do with the hero transforming into a pokemon, because there's a chance it knew about the world and what was going to happen.

So... probably, at the time when you were traveling and Darkrai got in the way, Jirachi probably saved your life by turning you into a pokemon. Because how would they react at a human? My guess is in the future, you were the only human left to survive the world's paralysis... because somehow, you were working with a Grovyle. So where are the other humans?

Man... I need an answer for that...
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Nebbles on August 17, 2012, 09:01:42 PM
Is that canon? It's been a while since I've played it...

But if that's the case, Jirachi just probably had the human-to-pokemon part. If time was going out of whack, primal Dialga already would have been formed. I think the time issue was way before Bidoof's wish - just no one knew about it yet.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Bespinben on August 17, 2012, 09:02:04 PM
Jirachi made Dialga to Primal Dialga and let things go by themselves.

Primal Dialga is a product of a collapsed Temporal Tower. Temporal Tower's collapse was caused over time by Darkrai. These two facts are canon.

To say that Jirachi made Dialga into Primal Dialga would be to say that Jirachi caused Darkrai to be evil in the first place to cause him to attack the Tower, which is not the case because one, I doubt Jirachi has the power to change a person's personality, and two, Darkrai had been evil long before Bidoof made the wish.

Yes, but Jirachi knew all along what's gonna happen.

...and Jirachi is a wish-granter, not a psychic. It's not Xatu.

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Nebbles on August 17, 2012, 09:19:07 PM
But what Bespinben makes sense.

Darkrai had a plan to destroy the world all along. He was the one who began the ruin of time, thus creating Primal Dialga, which was an issue even before Bidoof made the wish. When Bidoof wished for friends, you and Grovyle had their time travel ruined by Darkrai who knew they were going to change history. Thus, you turning into a pokemon completed the wish, you and your partner being Bidoof's friends.

Jirachi did not know about the destruction. It made your partner want to join the guild, and your partner found you and you both joined together.

I love the side adventures! The story of Wigglytuff's past was the one I loved the most, because the first dungeon has my favorite music from PMD blue/red, the bond between Armaldo and Wigglytuff, and the ending that nearly made me cry.
The PMD series is awesome because it's good at provoking much emotion..

Roark... fucking roark and his damn rock types. I'll admit, I used turtwig to get past him because I am not dealing with that and I'm not locking myself into using Rock Smash.

My thoughts on solo-spinda so far:

Spinda's not that bad. I ended up with an adamant (+Atk,-Sp.Atk) one with Own Tempo (Prevents confusion) that's "capable of taking hits" (lul). So far its Base 60 stats have not hampered me too much.
Thankfully, I got faint attack for ghost types and psybeam for fighting types.

How's everyone else's solo runs going?

For teh lulz.

Team Galactics Headquarters confuses me. The way you go up the building makes it seem like either there are rooms hidden from view on the left or it's a slanted building.

Also, Platinum has too many fucking roadblocks.
"you can ride down cycling road and end up in hearthome city"

Soulsilver indeed! Here's my plans for it: Adamant Nature - Leftovers - - Serene Grace - EV Spread (due to Smogon’s help…) 144 HP 252 Atk 36 Def 76 Spd

Moveset shall be Body Slam, Rock Slide, Zen Headbutt, Earthquake

I think that should work.
Title: Re: General Pokémon

Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Nebbles on August 21, 2012, 12:23:30 AM
Mmm, a little, but there's the option of staying in one spot and just beating up Pokemon that give out those EVs. Which I can do with ease.

Specific EV Training is a bit unnecessary for the main game.

It would seem that you'll have a bit of difficulty getting your ideal moveset.
The only way it learns Body Slam is by 3rd gen Move Tutor. Rock slide as an egg move or TM from the Pewter City Gym. Zen Headbutt from the Battle Frontier Move Tutors.

Title: Re: General Pokémon

Yeah...sadly hes right. The only other moevs I can think of that wont completely suck are pursuit, take down, or ancient power from leveling up. Apparently Dunsparce can learn blizzard, flamethrower, and water pulse through tms, so you could try that if you're willing to find all of them
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Nebbles on August 21, 2012, 01:38:11 AM
For now, I can use bite as a move until I can replace it... so Bite, headbutt... I could breed for Rock Slide, if I really wanted to.

But crap. I'll have to look at its level up moveset and use that until I can replace them..
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Shadoninja on August 21, 2012, 01:41:28 AM
http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/206.shtml

Yeah. I could offer some suggestions for replacements.
If you want the paralysis from body slam, you could use glare or thunder wave. If you want a normal-type STAB Attack, try Return, Take Down, or Headbutt.

What's Rock Slide and Zen Headbutt for?
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Bubbles on August 21, 2012, 01:42:14 AM
Did you already start? I think Bite is an egg move, and if you restart the game youll need to trade the egg from another game
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Nebbles on August 21, 2012, 01:43:06 AM
Flinching, I believe...

So Headbutt and Bite can work for that, I'll throw in Glare and think of another replacement move until I can get those ones.

And no, I haven't started.

Shado, what are your replacement ideas? =/
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Shadoninja on August 21, 2012, 02:02:40 AM
Hmm. have you considered using a speed lowering nature? that would allow you to use some special moves without a reduction in power. It has a really good special movepool.

I would strongly suggest you use Roost which it learns at level 33 or TM which you obtain early.

Headbutt's an egg move too? Siiiigh...

Shado, what are your replacement ideas? =/
you can learn headbutt by move tutor at Ilex Forest.

How about:

Glare
Roost/Take Down/Return/Headbutt
Water Pulse/Thunder/Blizzard
Dig/Earthquake

You can also not use roost if for some reason you don't need the recovery.

Other Options:

Shock Wave
Charge Beam
Shadow Ball
Rock Tomb

Post by: Nebbles on August 21, 2012, 02:06:20 AM
Headbutt, Glare, Roost and Earthquake doesn't sound too terrible. But that's not a lot of coverage... I could replace Glare with Thunder, maybe...

Updated the set.
Normal/Ground/Water gives you good coverage that's only resisted by Giratina and Shedinja.
Normal/Ground/Electric resisted by those two and Rotom
Normal/Ground/Ghost resisted by Skarmory.
Title: Re: General Pokémon
Post by: Nebbles on August 21, 2012, 02:22:50 AM
Normal/Ground/Water sounds best to me... because in all reality when do I face a Giratina in SS? Or Shedinja? I should be fine with that set...

Great! I looked up Falkner because I forgot what he looked like, and I didnt recognize anything from the screenshots of the game. I dont remember any of the gym leaders, but Im positive Ive played it completely because I remember the Pokeathlon and getting other generation pokemon after beating the game. But Im pretty sure I wouldve remembered Blue (who I see as Gary) as a gym leader. It kinda scaring me, since the game came out only a few years ago

On another note, I easily beat Canalave city's gym using Dig

Possibly no healing items? But that would pretty much screw you against someone your weak against or a party of 6. Idk, because thats really the only easy part so far. Im dreading the Elite four, even though the only type disadvantage for me isnt that bad

Solo runs aren't too hard after a while, which ruins the point of it being a challenge. Once you get insanely over leveled, you just sweep everywhere.

And for nuzlockes, I have a "5 item limit", which means that I can get 5 of one type of potion and like, full heals or something. In reality, later on in the game, that can screw you over...
