heres another long time pet peeve of mine
the winning strategy of the pokemon games relies almost entirely on one/two hit KOs
while there are more involving strategies in later games but for most of the games when you first play through(to put into perspective) you're just taking the warrior approach as apposed to the theif or the mage unless you get lucky enough to find some other way on your own or do a lot research
i mean no one complained about the feature from Earthbound where if there is a 100% chance of winning a random battle the game allows you to skip the battle and you get the ex p anyway
I still wouldn't compare them to the CoD players who check every little thing.. (From Damage through Walls, to Reload time) Stat Checkers on Pokemon rarely actually check the stat anyways. They are more concerned about the move-sets of Pokemon, and not some stats that can easily be altered by a few in-game items.
well the winning the stradegy for COD a lot of the time is equipping the weapon with the fastest reload time and charge in like the freaking Transporter
when the frustration of accuracy is involved and pokemon that has its attack power doubled if its the same type as itself its easy to become a little obsessive compulsive if you love pokemon enough
And no freaking Zubats hiding out in every damn cave..
does that go for rattatas, geodudes and magikarps?
yeah i know that maybe we aren't supposed to pronounce an s at the end if it's plural anyway or maybe i've just watched the anime too much
Kid 1: Man, I love Altaria. So cool.
Kid 2: Altaria's stats SUCK. The EV rating is .2343. That's a joke. My blahblah could destory that with a pow attack rating of 4.234 and a catch rate of .42423152523.
If a conversation went anything like that when I was a kid I woulda thrown the game in the damn garbage lol.
lack self esteem much?
