General Pokemon Discussion

Post by The Administrator on Mon Mar 15, 2010 4:59 pm

Well I have a feeling that Pokemon will be the majority of chat that goes on here, so for general chat about it post here.

What is/was your team, in any game?


My Crystal/SoulSilver team is:

Gengar
Golem
Typhlosion
Raticate
Poliwrath
Umbreon

Yeah. That's the stuff. Killer team, them, Let it be known that Rest + Sleep Talk is the most useful combo EVER for a low-HP tank like Raticate.

Also, little tidbits of info and hints and the like can be posted here. For instance, those who have played Pokemon Stadium Two will know about move combos, like how Rollout is stronger if you use it after Defense Curl. The more you know, huh?

As a final note, forgive me if I ramble. Talking about Pokemon sparks some serious nostalgic feelings for me.

To quote myself, Pokemon Heartgold and SoulSilver are "Like one giant
nostalgia trip x20 glazed with awesomesauce and sprinkled with
mind-blowing powder." And that pretty much sums it up. It's a remake of
Pokemon Gold and Silver in the style of Diamond and Pearl, and it just
makes you EVER SO NOSTALGIC if you played the games when you were
little, like I did. Later on in the game there's even a way to toggle
the original Game Boy Color music on! It's just... I can't explain it.
Go out and buy it NOW. I COMMAND YOU.

Here's the party I want for these games though (yes it's the same one)
Venusaur
Pidgeot/Swellow
Rayquaza
Mewtwo
Lapras
Magneton

All at level 100 of course

I have Heart Gold.

And I cant belive I'm about to do this....Out There.

That Team will never work.

Magneton isnt full evolved. Magnezone is its superior form.

Swellow and Venasaur can both be killed by ice type moves.

Rayquaza and mewtwo are considered 'ubers' and banned from most battles.

Lapras is ok.

Basically Mamowine and Gangar can this team down handily.

I have a few things I need to point out:
1. Magnezone is not available in either Firered/LeafGreen or Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald (generation 3)
2. This party is not for Nintendo-sanctioned events, especially since Firered/LeafGreen and Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald aren't supported at sanctioned events anymore.
3. Lapras is a water/ice type, so I can just send it in against ice types
4. This is just for beating the Kanto and Hoenn Elite Four.
5. I may just teach one or two of my pokemon in that party a dark move via TM

Again, I do not have a Nintendo GameBoy Dual Screen of any generation: I just have a GameBoy Advance, so I can't play the generation 4 pokemon games (Diamond/Pearl/Platinum and HeartGold/SoulSilver) and I'm too broke to get one, at least new.

@OUTHERE: Hmmmm Beating the elite four is only the first step. If your going to fight other people then there are Standard Rules. That are universaly followed.

@ALEX: Ya. There are certain carnival rules when team building. And I do belive you could use a bit of help.

1. Physical moves are given strength baced on the attack stat. Specail attacks are given strength baced on the Specal attack stat. Togekiss shouldnt have both phychic AND wing attack. Also metronome is considered useless because you never know what will come out. Togekiss also has an amazing move pool. No need for metronome.

2. Never have the same type of pokemon on your team more than once unless you have a good reason. You have two flying/normal types. I suggest you get rid of pidgeot.

3. Golem will die before its rock polish can be put to good use. Unless your golem's speed is absolute maximum it's not going to work so good. Most people dont even use this pokemon in standard battles because ryhperior/rydon is better in every way.

4. Never use sunny day unless you build a team around it.

5. Gengar can be put to MUCH better use than that! Get ird of curse. Use hypnosis/dream eater if you feel you must. But I wouldnt. Hypnosis has a pathetic accuracy and gengar has a history of being one hit koed a whole lot. In my opinion, use max speed and semi max special attack. Then stack it with three special moves and an ace up your sleeve. [Like 'trick' or 'subsititue']

6. Dont have the same type of STAB [same type as attack bonus] move on your pokemon more than once. It only has four moves and you can find a more useful move than two stab moves. (slash and headbut are what im talking about)

The thing is, I don't have any friends that play generation 3 Pokemon games, or any Pokemon games. In fact, I really don't have many friends at all.

Though I would like to know what exactly these rules you refer to are.
