But damn jubeh, those pokemon are still almost all first form, and can be beaten by almost all decent leveled pokemon you'd have at that point. The revamped elite four(75+) and cynthia on the other hand are hard as hell.

It's probably because my old DS is hardly intact.

And also our WiFi is a bit weird.

It's a shame really 'cos I enjoyed collecting and growing berries in the other games and you can only do it in the Dream world in B/W.

Victini. :3

Matt
03-21-2011, 10:10 AM
My Victini's sorta pathetic. I'm shooting for a level 100 starter first, Samurott in my case. Unfesant (however you spell that) might beat him there, what with boosted exp. and all. He was my first traded Pokemon.

Sad fact: after owning the game a week, I haven't even beat all the gyms yet. I got a lot more into it when my brother bought Black version, though.

Bacon_Barbarian
03-21-2011, 01:48 PM
Meh, I dumped Samurott for Jelicent.

And Matt, I was resetting for a few hours to get a good Victini. And then I EV Trained it. I'm into competitive Pokemon. IOW, I'm a big-ass nerd (not that my ass is big)...

Matt
03-21-2011, 02:05 PM
Oh, wow. I never considered resetting to get a better one--I just wanted to catch it. One HP and asleep, it still broke out. How do you break out of a ball when you're asleep?

Well, I'm training him up. Hopefully he'll be better after a few routs of the Elite Four. Level 100 would be awesome, but I haven't got any of those since filling my party with them in Gold version. Working on a lv. 100 Pidgeot in Moemon Leafgreen (yes, I went there). I'm actually EV training it for high attack. One Island's got a good spot.

White version's the first game I've considered swapping out my starter for someone else, but after turning Dewott into Samurott, I decided against it. Samurott's pretty good.

Well, I ended up using him to solo the E4. Which he did at level 100, not before (head-desk). Sad thing is, I got him from 15 to 100 in less then 24 hours.

I know, I just havn't bothered yet. My favourite steel type, Ferrothorn has a X4 weakness to fire, but it's still amazing. Also only other thing thats super effective against it is fighting, cause steel reduces out all other types good against grass, and grass reduces against ground.

So guys, which is the best pokemon game in your opinion?

For my is ruby, saphire and emerald, this is because these where the first pokemon games in apply the IV and EV (as I remember), the first in making a villain team who doesn't have a stupid goal as "steal pokemons", gave us more battles after the elite 4 (the gold and silver were good, and they gave us 2 worlds, kanto and johto, also you could fight against ash, but in here we have a island of battles), gave us the pokemon contests (which wasn't very developted at the time), and was the last pokemon with the best pokemon and starter pokemons (the pokemon black nd white, as pearl and others after these pokemons games gave us some pretty shit pokemons, by design and stats, were the worst).

My last pokemon game that I play it on GB it was the Gold, but I have to recognize that emerald, ruby and saphire where pretty nice games.

Bacon_Barbarian
03-24-2011, 08:01 PM
Eh, they're all good. All games had IVs and EVs Clock, unless you're saying that's when you started to care about them. And you're joking. Gen V has introduced some of the best Pokemon (by stats) yet.

I'd say my order is as follows:

BW (Feels like the originals, but has more and better graphics) > RBE (Can't beat the orignals (Except you can)) > GSC (IDK honestly, I just remeber Johto fondly, probably because that game taught me how to read) > DPPt (Things were stale. I got into competitive battling this Gen though, so...) = RSE (Hoenn was fun, but the plot was too much. Team Rocket made sense (they wre the Maffia) while Aqua and Magma were insane (especially Magma))

They're all awesome though, each has their Pros and Cons.

jubeh
03-24-2011, 08:14 PM
Black and white is the best imo.

ClockHand
03-24-2011, 08:18 PM
what red and blue have IV and EV... never knew it.

For my the worst is Black and White, the pokemon look bad, and the starters has the worst stats ever (lets do a fire pokemon with high attack, sp. attack, but low def, sp. def and speed. And a water starter with low def. sp. def and hp), also. What the fuck with all the monkeys? (we start with mankey and primape in red and blue, then they add Aipom, then his evolution Ambipon, then chimchar, monferno, infernape, and now they add Pansage, Simisage, Pansear, Simisear, Panpour and Simipour. And Darmanitar does look like a monkey). This pokemon is the shittest by far and with just looking at Garbodor you know its true.

Also, who ever said before that pokemon are turning more and more into digimons, should see Genesect

I love ruby, shapire and emerald, they bring the berries (the berries were introduced in gold and silver, but it was in these version were the berries have more importance), the villains are villains and have a relationship with the legendary pokemons, great starter pokemons and first starter with 2 types (wate/ground and fire/fighter), first in putting pokemon contests, etc. It were great pokemon games that I enjoy as much as I did with Gold and Red.


Edit: also in graphic. Would you tell me this http://pokebeach.com/content/games/black-white/prerelease/0510/black-white-screenshot-12.jpg looks better than this http://ui10.gamefaqs.com/9/gfs_61813_2_3.jpg ? Because obviously in emerald the pokemons were much more smoother in combat.

Bacon_Barbarian
03-24-2011, 08:31 PM

Worked differently because of Special Attack and Defense being the same stat.

Some are misses, but most are hits. Emboar doesn't really need the speed as he can take quite a few hits from his bulk alone, and very few starters have actually been god competitively.


Also, who ever said before that pokemon are turning more and more into digimons, should see Genesect
I don't really see that as bad. Necessarily.

Dream World.

Actual plot.

Decent replay value. (Not as good as Emerald)

Most Pokemon are actually pretty original (and the ones that aren't aren't have very good stats)

DrPumpkin
03-24-2011, 09:08 PM
I think I'll never be able to pick my favorite pokemon game subjectively since I'll always love the one I first played as a small kid. (Which was emerald, btw).

Also, I never thought pokemon was a game about stats. The whole magic of pokemon is in adventure and ever since I discovered what EVs and IVs were, I felt I sort of lost some enjoyment value.

But I suppose I'll have to say Black and White is the best game so far since it pretty much fixed the flaws in the gameplay. I'm sad that they didn't add all the stuff they added in Heartgold and Soulsilver with pokemon following you and stuff but I'm guessing they'll keep on adding and adding from now on as B/W was probably a reboot of the franchise.

Rant over.

So last week, I was watching this LP for pokemon white and it looked cool as shit in terms of graphics. Story, well idunno since I wasn't actually playing. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I were lawl BUT I DONT HAVE A GODDAMN DS. But yeah, interesting beginning, very different from other pmon games (well at least the ones from GBA down. no idea about the other ds games). wanna play it badly, so I (or clock) have yet to find a good ds emulator

As for pokemon in general, I've been becoming interested in different peoples' styles of training, so whats yo' training style? When I first started playing, like any little kid playing pokemon, I would train the shit out of my starter (60-70) and just beat the story like that, but then when it comes to the elite four its like fail fail fail. So lately I've been trying to train them equally, without much success but one day I will be awesome at it

I'm playing firered though (yeah I know, fuckin old school man). this is my team atm, I'm obviously not extremely far in the game, I'm still trying to make my team nice:
Growlithe Lv 26
-Bite
-Oder Sleuth
-Ember
-Secret Power
waiting for him to get fire wheel, then I'll evolve him to arcanine. I'm having a hard time leveling him up though, for some reason
Diglett Lv 22
-Rest
-Cut
-Magnitude
-Dig
trying to level him up, but not very successful but i am confident that he will soon become an amazing dugtrio
Wartortle Lv 32
-Bite
-Brick Break
-Water Pulse
-Mega Kick
Fearow Lv 31
-Aerial Ace
-Pursuit
-Fly
-Fury Attack (shit move btw)
Kadabra Lv 33 <--coolest pokemon, I've never caught an abra so when I did I felt like the coolest person on earth. if only it was shiny
-Reflect
-Shockwave
-Disable
-Psybeam
aaaand HM slave, which is a paras. he's level 9 so no one loves him, not even his mother

so whats your guys team on whatever version you're working on atm? how are you training them? did you predecide your team or did you go with the flow?

EDIT: drpunkin; emerald was also my first and favorite. the map is huuuuuuuuuuuge and blaziken is a beast

Bacon_Barbarian
03-24-2011, 09:12 PM
DrP, you aren't that much younger then me are you (Emerald being your first game and all)?

So I can't discuss about which mortal kombat is better? or street fighter? or megaman? (I can keep going) just because it would be like comparing M&M colors?

Each pokemon game is different and it has his own good and bad stuffs, under that statment I can compare and discuss about which one is better and which is worst.

Bisharp reminds me more of a nazi(not the reason I like him, thats because of the awesome swords) with his roman salutin', WWII-esque helmet of a head, and the fact that hes in the German colors.

For a megaman pokemon, Genosect (http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-bw/649.shtml/url) comes to mind. His unique attack changes type depending on what special item hes holding, like Arceus' plates sorta.

ClockHand
03-25-2011, 12:55 AM
and there is still no platypus pokemon (or tiger, lemur, camel, llama, leecher, dolphine, etc). Funny how pokemon is out of animals to use, so it has to repite (monkeys) and create new animals (use from digimon and megaman).

No-Guard DynamicPunch would rape Frolass, especially with a Choice Scarf.

But Forslas is faster and can do Blizzard with 100 of accuracy (No Guard from Golurk) which does the double of damage against Golurk.

If you train Froslas Sp. Attack, you could win.

IMHO froslass and golurk are pretty bad.

Why would you choice scarf a base 55 speed pokemon?
If anything use focus sash, lum berry or choice band on him.
He's practically a ghost Machamp.

The roms you find anywhere are pretty much fine (for the most part) if your computer's up to it. My laptop just barely doesn't run it at full speed (a 2006 model). If you have a desktop you bought in the last 4-5 years, you should be fine.

My netbook can run it fine without sound. The deal I'm having now is that the pictures get freezed and after Oak talk to you everything turn black.

So anyone have some advice for it? (I have tried the cheats)

Winston? That is epic.

I have a Whimsicott called Fluffee, but I got that from some girl in Nacrene. I talked to her a few seconds later and battled a level 63 Leavanny (I think--can't remember). I'd given it to her at level 14. Whatever that girl (Dye was her name) used to train it that fast, I want it.

Eh, since I'm into the competitive aspect of Pokemon, I only nickname what I keep. Which is about 1/90 Pokemon post E4.

Question for you competitive types: are flat-50 battles frowned upon in more casual settings? Just because as a casual fan training takes me far longer in real time since I play less frequency. The flat-50 rules cuts down on the grinding time.

No, but you wont be very competitive at level 50 as you wont have had the time to EV train. Or it's less likely you have.

Mostly, but Random Matchup is largely competitive, and if you don't play that way, you'll lose most fo the time.

Pretty sure if you played somebody at an equal skill level to yourself stats would matter a lot more. Which is kind of the point of high level play. Players plateau and look to the game system to give them an edge.

It makes 63 points in a stat difference. At max. And coupled with Natures and IVs, it makes a 94 point percent difference and 1.5x the Base Power of the benefited stat in difference. So yeah, it does. Have you ever even battled someone who EV trains?

I'm a humongous Pokemon fan, it was literally my childhood. Recently I found my old Gameboy Advance and a bunch of games at the bottom of a drawer. I've started replaying Pokemon Blue and it's bringing back so many memories. :') I've only defeated 1 gym so far because I'm scared to go into the water gym. I just know my charmeleon will die unless I make it a high level first. D: So I've trained it to 30. And my nidorina the same. That's probably more than necessary for the stage I'm at but I really don't want to take any risks. >_>

People are hating one Dream World, I think it does exactly what it should. Some quick, mildly entertaining minigames, but most importantly: that anticipation and anxiety of wondering which pokemon will appear. That's the fun part for veterans.

Personally I didn't want it to be too engaging. It would take away from my time playing the actual game! 15-20 mins per day is enough.

Realize this is a bit of a necro, but last time I started a new thread because something fell behind I was ridiculed, so whatever. New games were announced a bit ago and look like they're gonna be ... Interesting to say the least. Head over to Serebii if you want specifics. Personally, I'm not really sure what to think. What little of the plot looks fine, but I'm not sure I like how they're handling the Dex. No doubts about it, 300 in the National Dex is amazing, but the variety ... It sort of kills the whole reboot thing. I dunno, I hope they explain it well.

It won't. However it will have Pokemon from all the proceeding generations and some new towns while old ones are no longer available. And it's not a remake like Platinum, the story is new. Completely. Although N may be around.
