^Using Legendaries is Lame. Although Kyogre is one of my favorite legendaries.

Manectric is ok, but tbh, I don't really like any of the pure electric types in gen 3. Lanturn's a good electric pokemon but it's also part water, so if you're not sure what you want as your water Pokemon you could use that. You can find Chinchou (it's pre evolution) under water in Dive areas.

Pre-B/W ghost types never interested me. Emerald has a lot of great 'mons you could use. Wouldn't use a space up with a ghost.
Gen 3 Ghosts sucks. I wouldn't use one in Emerald. But in the gen 1 and 2 games, or Fire Red, Gengar's always a strong choice for me. It's a favorite of mine and a great Pokemon too, and a Ghost type is good for the in-game because they're immune to Normal moves, which make up many trainers moves, and fighting type moves.

Psywave isn't super effective to anything, similar to how Future Sight isn't super effective to anything.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

It was a legit question, I don't mean to be disrespectful. It's just the amount of times me and others have had to correct you on something in this thread. And most of the things you don't really need much Pokemon knowledge for, like Skarmory's weaknesses for example, I've known Skarmory's weak to Fire and Electric since I was like 10 year old. Basic type knowledge is like one of the first things you should know in Pokemon.

I've been playing Pokemon since Red and Blue was released in Japan, and I didn't know about Psywave's lack of effectiveness, nor that Skarmory was weak against electric. Heck, there's allot of stuff about the game series that I didn't know about until recently, and probably still don't know. it's allot of info for allot of games.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

Psywave lack of super-effectiveness to be fair is something I don't expect everyone to know, but Skarmory's weakness to Electric? It's a freaking Flying type. You know like the Pidgey's you would destroy with Pikachu's Thundershock in Pokemon Red. When people claim to have played since the first games but don't know basic Type knowledge it really surprises me.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

I was only joking about being angry. I get confused easily. I know most of the type stuff; I thought steel was 1/2 effective to electric. Hence why I got so excited.

I can't see the rational behind psychic being weak to steel. like, it's cool and all, but why?

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

Psychic isn't weak to Steel, Steel resists it, yes, but Steel isn't more than 1x vs anything other than Ice or Rock.
