I've caught 5 I can remember. My post on Shinys some pages back:

I've only ever found shiny Pokemon in the gen 2 games, probably because those are the games I've played extensively and have had countless files on them over the years. When you play enough, you're bound to find a shiny eventually.

I've also got a few shinies through the shiny Ditto breeding trick on the gen 2 games, but those weren't caught obviously.
Slowpoke, Pidgey, Weedle, and Zubat was 4, but now my Shiny Hoothoot makes 5 Shiny Pokemon caught over the years. Not counting Red Gyarados obviously. My favorite was Pidgey, raised it into a awesome Pidgeot, wish I still had it, but I lost it when my data got corrupted and I was forced to restart my game. Least favorite was Weedle, just because I don't like Weedle, but I was very excited when I encountered it nonetheless.

To cut a long story short grinding is burning me out of the game slowly and I don't want it to, I quit black #1 just before the elite 4....whilst I was grinding levels and it's always been a stumbling block

After all this is said and done I still don't know what would make a good composition or indeed what movesets would be ideal, right now all my pokemon are essentially smash smash and smash, I wouldn't mind something a bit more controlled or defensive
http://www.smogon.com/bw/pokemon/ These sets are normally used for competitive battling, so they will mostly be Smash, but there a lot of more defensive sets that you could try if you feel like it.

Don't give up. Grinding levels is the more dull part of the game, but it honestly isn't necessary! Just stock up on Medicine items and you should be good!

Sweet F all. Boosted stats in Gen 2, but they're now used mainly for bragging rights.. Or they were until the invention of PokeSav. (Allows you to change shit in the games. From Name & Party Pokemon to receiving Event Pokemon & Shinys.)

Smogon may be more for competitive battling, but many of the recommended move sets for Pokemon are great for the in-game story as well. The site is very knowledgeable and it teaches you the importance of type coverage, setup moves, strategies, combos etc - which work great for online batting and the casual in-game story. It's a site I often frequent when I'm looking for potential movesets for my Pokemon, and when I want to check out the current Pokemon and their tiers, because while I don't play Online battles, I have an interest in them and I've watched many battles on Youtube and stuff.

Just found these while looking through my old YouTube channel's favorites.. (One more was there but the guy removed his channel.. T'was my best battle too )




I think all 4 are in poor quality.. Haven't had the chance to re-watch them yet. These were back from when I used to be on some Pokemon Forums.. (I think they have all stopped running now..) If I remember correctly, I had some form of Wi-Fi Pokemon Journey type deal going on in one of them. (Gyms, Elite 4, 'Aftergame'..) Really good times, back when I was starting off competitively using an Ambipom constantly.. To the point where everyone had to have a fighting type somewhere in their team to stop me or I would have way too much fun constantly switching in & out using Fake Out! Good times!

I don't care for Wooper, but I like Quagsire. I'm like that with some Pokemon and their evolutions.

I hate Ambipom just from the Wifi battles I've watched. Fake Out is such an annoying move. I'd imagine from your experience in Wifi battling that you've watched some well known Youtube battlers before? My favorite YouTube Pokemon battler is TheKillerNacho, although he hasn't posted a wifi battle in months.

I used to watch The Killer Nacho a fair bit, yeah. Preferred BlameTruth personally, but TKN was a good watch every now and then!

Ambipom is one of the best Pokemon for making opponents Rage Quit. Step 1: Fake Out, Step 2: U-Turn. Step 3: Rinse and Repeat until opponent tells you he fucked your mother. Step 4: Find new victim.

Jirachi's a cunt though. Body Slam with a 60% Chance to Paralyze, Iron Head with a 60% Chance to Flinch and Water Pulse with a 60% chance to Confuse. Mix them together and your opponent will literally never get a move in against you.. (When Paralyzed, if hit by Iron Head, you only have a 15% chance to get a hit in next turn. Add confusion and that drops to around the area of 7.5%..)

Getting back onto X and Y, do you think this'll be the lucky gen where we can choose our hero? We have male and female, but I think it'd be cool to chose between at least 3 male avatars and 3 female avatars.

A shot in the dark, I know, but we kinda had the function at least in the PVP aspect of things.

I hated the thing that the rival ALWAYS looks better than you, so it would be nice.

I used to watch BlameTruth a lot, before I got blocked by him for the stupidest thing. He was a good Pokemon battler though, and I originally subscribed to his channel many years before he did Pokemon battles because of his COD gameplay/commentaries.

Jirachi's very annoying too, same with Togekiss.

I doubt it, but it's a nice idea. The player characters are looking worse each year. I mean look at the male player character from Black and White 2:



He looks AWFUL. By far the worst player character design to date.

They should of stuck with good designs like this:



And it would be cool if we could have a few male characters to choose from. Or if we could customize the clothes of the player.
