Everyone plays the game like this. EV Trainers don't get the game and then just train away. Stat Checkers don't just hop in and read up on everything immediately. Hell, I didn't play competitively until I had gotten about 390+ out of the 493 in Diamond. I could name every Pokemon from Gen 1 - 5 and tell you how good their stats are in each case, but that doesn't stop me from experiencing new things in the game, which I think is the best part of it. I've spent hours hunting for Feebas, just to complete the Pokedex.

I still get lost, I still spend a long ass time hunting for that final member of my team and I still have so much fun playing both the Main Storyline and Online. I know more than most when it comes to this game, but it still has its surprises that even I haven't found yet. (I only just found out last week that in D/P/Pl if you can select more than one Pokemon at a time in your PC.)

EV training is a weird subject for me too though.. I didn't use the Games for Online purposes, (I used an Online Simulator for that) so I don't have much experience with the whole EV shtick, but I don't think anything less/more about people who do, because it's how they have fun with the games after they have gotten bored of the Main Storyline.

And no freaking Zubats hiding out in every damn cave..

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

That's another great improvement in the newer games. There's a huge variety of pokemon everywhere now. Long gone are the days of having every cave be 75% Zubat. Except for the creation of Woobat. Easily top 5 ugliest pokemon of all time lol.

I maintain that the most funt to use and best pokemon for battling is Hitmonlee.

Fake out with normal gem to trigger unburden. Sweeps everything.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

I'm trying to catch them all right now. So I need to check moves and stats to do that rather effectively.

and Budew! What a fucking beast! This little seed is fucking killing everything!

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

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

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

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

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?

I think you're getting a little too worked up over it. It's just pokemon.

Of course it does. You're aiming to cause your opponent to faint, as is your opponent.. You're not going to sit around for 20 Minutes using Tackle on a Gastly just so you can stall out the battle.

People complain about everything so there probably was complaints about that feature.

The winning strategy on CoD is kill as many people as many times as possible. (And occasionally capture Flags, Headquarters etc.)

You don't see any of those 3 nearly as much as Zubat, so they don't really bother me as much. Also, Zubat has Supersonic.

I remember in FR I was training my Hitmonlee with the Cool Trainers at the end of wanna say the 7th island post game, a OHKO'd a Chansey 20 levels higher than me. Next time around, I missed my Hi Jump Kick and OHKO'd myself So much fun
