Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

Finally got my Togepi...

... With a meh nature, and a crappy (compared to serene grace) ability... Sigh... Time to evolve to Togetic and breed...

Electrode is, unfortunately, a fantastic example of what Electric types regularly are..

~ Above average to great Speed.
~ Very little Attacking Stats
~ Fantastic Supporting Move-sets that would be (and often are) better on almost every Steel Type Pokemon.
~ Little to no defensive capabilities.
~ Wong moves entirely at times.. (Fucking Gyro Ballin' Electrodes...)


Gen 6 seriously needs another Galvantula! Great Speed, Sp. Attack and a useful move-set that actually makes use of its best stats... A Physical Attacking Electric/Fire or a Special Attacking Electric/Psychic would be nice to see.

Would Trick Room make Gyro Ball hit harder?

True. And Magneton with Eviolite definitely outclasses it now.. I want Electrode to get some improvements in gen 6, but I doubt it will happen. When a new gen comes out they seem to only care about the new Pokemon for the most part, very few old Pokemon get good improvements. Electrode suffers from mediocre stats except speed AND a bad move pool, and I thought of way to improve it to make it more usable by giving it access to every ball move (things like Shadow Ball, Energy ball, Weather Ball) - as it's the ball Pokemon after all. That would give Electrode some more coverage moves, to make it's move pool a little better, as most electric types seems to have good move pools - but Electrode misses out.

Gen 5 ruined Electrode further by nerfing Explosion and bringing about Prankster users that ruined it's niche as a rain dance lead.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

I thought Torkoal (with White smoke) would avoid the whole "SPC attack has greatly fallen" effect from Overheat. It didn't. How sad. I was excited.

as for Electrode, he was fine on my team, but with Swellow already being a speed demon (I thought he was beast when I was like 13 years old; now I think he's kind of bullshit) already, Electrode didn't help. But Magneton's Spc. Atk. is really a lot. And I'm training him on route 121 (where it's raining in Emerald) so his attacks never miss. so easy right now.

White Smoke only works on stats that the enemy tries to lowers, like with the Intimidate ability. It doesn't work if you lower you own stats through a move. http://www.smogon.com/rs/abilities/white_smoke

What you need is a Torkoal with the White Herb item, which won't lower your stats when you use Overheat.

Flannery the fire gym leader in Emerald uses a Torkoal with White Herb.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

I just got a vulpix and might switch it out with torkoal. Get him some good move set, then evolve him. he isn't as good; but he looks cooler imo.

or maybe a shuppet?

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

Whats everyone think of the new Mystery Dungeon? Bought it the other day, I really like it as both a dungeon crawling RPG fan and Pokemaniac alike. Great title to keep me tided over for Pokemon X and Y in October. I like the find a magngate feature, hope they continue to implement the 3DS camera into things. So far there is this and the Dream Radar app.

I also see some EV Training discussion in here too :O Would love to add some of you folks in the games for some battles if you wanna exchange friendcodes.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

Bought a 3DS with my tax refund and started playing B2 again. So far got my team set up of Shiny Gible, Larvitar, and Dratini, not sure what else to use. probably a Joltnik, try a Glaceon, and one more special attacker.
