Anyone else find it exceedingly annoying that using Battle Spot to battle online is 3v3 instead of 6v6, and that they scale pokemon down to 50 but don't scale them up to 50?   
   
I just tried it for the first time last night after having finished training my team and I noticed those things, saw three people in a row running Xerneas/Mewtwo/Yveltal (as they're not banned in free play), and went "Nope, nope, I'm done."

It's sarcasm. If you wanna do free battles, do it witht he most overpowered shit you have.

i really hope that we get x2y2 instead of just z
or if we get z that it's not just a redo of the first ones with some lttle changes but is actually a new story/a sequel like with b2w2

Same
Sequels are much better waste of moeny
User avatar #530337 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
wouldn't it be cool if there was ability that let you switched out after you made a nonstatus move? or an ability that let you switch out after an attacking move?

call it Hit n' Run

put it on a slower or decent speed stat pokemon so it isn't overpowered.
User avatar #530474 to #530337 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
U-turn, Volt Switch, and Parting Remark all do that.

U-turn does physical damage and then returns to its pokeball, Volt Switch does it with Special, and Parting Remark lowers Attack and Special Attack and then switches.
User avatar #530514 to #530474 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
Yeah I wasn't talking about a move. I'm smart enough to know about those. I'm talking about an ability that does it for attacks AND/OR non-attack moves / status moves
User avatar #530520 to #530514 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
That's retarded.
User avatar #530523 to #530520 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
It's better than giving Drought to Ninetailes and Drizzle to Politoed. They fucked up so bad they had to change how weather works because of it.
User avatar #530527 to #530523 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
No, what I mean is that your ability is retarded. "Oh, I could sweep the entire team! Nope, switched out"
User avatar #530531 to #530527 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
how? it would be for strategic purposes, mainly being fodder or a stat and run.. and you don't normally sweep a team with one pokemon unless you are facing a retard.. course you could regulate it with putting it on a shit tier pokemon.. but it'd make a shit tier pokemon usable in higher tiers merely cause of the ability....
User avatar #530534 to #530531 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
No, because normal scouting moves like U-turn are better than that. Like, a lot better.
User avatar #530547 to #530534 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
omg are you fucking stupid? it would be giving a normally shitty pokemon a decent ability.. AND IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE WITH JUST ATTACKING EITHER. fuck are you challenged?

they could do eq, making up for their shit attack, and still switch out.. but that wouldn't be the point of the ability at all. it'd be more of using attacks and status moves that are detrimental to your opponent while getting a free switch... so like t-wave and switch to serene grace pokemon.. or lowering attack with a move like psychic, bubblebeam, constrict, and the like.. or mean looking and switching to other pokemon...

more strategic value than just u-turn. you could also regulate the movesets of the pokemon so it isn't overpowered.. like mean look and switching would be rigged... things like that...

do you understand or do you just not know anything about the metagame?
User avatar #530575 to #530547 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
The ability is hardly ever what keeps pokemon in lower tiers other than a namely 3 (Archeops, Regigigas, and Slaking), and it's not that big of an advantage.
It's clear that you know nothing about the game yourself, as the pokemon with Serene Grace all have Thunderwave, and switching out after using Mean Look cancels the effects you fucking moron.
The same things can be used with U-turn, and switching out after KOing a pokemon isn't good either, because they still get the opportunity to choose the matchup, because the switching comes first. Fuck off with this stupid crap, you obviously know nothing about the game so stop acting like you know the metagame like the back of your filthy hand you thick skulled shitbrain.
User avatar #530579 to #530575 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
Ok bby.
That's why I was in the top #50 on smogon for the ou tier.
whatever you say babe.
I won't argue
User avatar #530581 to #530579 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
You don't know anything. Saying that you're in the top 50 for smogon is also retarded, because people who play in smogon leagues just copy/paste the top 6 pokemon onto their own teams and do nothing else other than do exactly what the smogon page says. It takes literally no skill to be good in smogon.
User avatar #530555 to #530547 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
*but it would be just for status / non attack moves or just attacking moves...
get it?
so you could still attack a shit load and not switch out.. but then you do a status move and you switch...

DO YOU UNDERSTAND?
User avatar #530578 to #530555 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
It's not good for anything other than scouting. It's shit. You're shit. And you know nothing about the game.

User avatar #530647 to #530583 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
I know right babe? I guess all it takes to win battles is copying others teams and strategies. There is no other talent, skill, surprise, or diversified movepools required to win. Teach me more master.

le sneaky pebbles
User avatar #530342 to #530337 - pickaxe (11/08/2013) [-]
nah,it would break cooldown,or stat. loss moves,also it would be pretty annoying if it came up every time you attack.
But I think one that keeps stat changes when switching out would work.Like Baton pass,but as an ability.
User avatar #530528 to #530342 - elitehacker (11/08/2013) [-]
ah true. but what if you gave the ability to only pokemon that didn't have moves like that?

your idea is pretty cool tho. i just said it as an idea seeing as that there aren't a good amount of switch out/in abilities... and it'd change up the metagame a bit.

So I'm battling Golurk and Banette for Attack in Gen V, but my Arcanine is still only getting 1-2 EVs per battle at level 30.

Is his growth just that bad, or am I doing something wrong?

Did the same thing with my Alakazam in Celestial Tower and he's almost at 400 special attack.

User avatar #530323 to #530321 - leprecono (11/08/2013) [-]
Each pokemon gives only 1-3 EVs per battle in a particular stat. And that EV is set, so Banette gives 2 EVs per battle while Golurk only gives you one.

What do you think the age limit should be to stop playing Pokemon?

I keep running into this one guy whom I always see Jogging. Every time he sees my Light Blue 3DS in my hand he starts getting wet. Soon he changes course and starts jogging slowly in the direction I am going asking me questions like "so what is your favorite pokemanz mine is Pikablue"

I have so little patience for this but I make sure not to yell at him because I just give him simple one word answers until he eventually jogs backwards all the way home.

what do you think guys?
User avatar #530353 to #530311 - RisenLichen (11/08/2013) [-]
Stop being an introvert and talk to the guy. Unless he's breathing down your neck, I see no problem with it.

Also it's probably safe to assume that if he doesn't approach you each time drenched in childs blood and rockin' a massive erection, that he means no harm.

As for what age you should be to give up playing/having an interest in pokemon,
I'd have to agree win Ren.

User avatar #530322 to #530311 - thegreathoodoo (11/08/2013) [-]
The poor guy probably just loves pokemon and doesn't get to talk about it all that often with real people. Unless he's a total creeper, why not humor him at least? or are you just more of an introvert in general? it's cool if you are.

how do I tell the hidden power?
User avatar #530277 to #530271 - allnamesrtaken (11/08/2013) [-]
In 4th gen: this was the best way.
Step 1: Battle a pure-Psychic type, like Abra, etc.
If it is Super Effective, go to Step 2a.
If it does regular damage, go to Step 2b.
If it is not very effective, go to Step 2c.

Step 2a: Battle a Normal/Flying type, like Starly, etc.
If it does regular damage, Hidden Power is Dark type.
If it is not very effective, Hidden Power is Bug type.
If it doesn't do any damage at all, Hidden Power is Ghost type.

Step 2b: Battle a pure-Bug type, like Wurmple, etc.
If it is Super Effective, go to Step 3a.
If it does regular damage, go to Step 3b.
If it is not very effective, go to Step 3c.

Step 2c: Battle a Gastly.
If it is Super Effective, Hidden Power is Psychic type.
If it doesn't do any damage at all, Hidden Power is Fighting type.
User avatar #530279 to #530277 - allnamesrtaken (11/08/2013) [-]
Step 3a: Battle a pure-Fire type, like Vulpix, Growlithe, Ponyta, etc.
If it is Super Effective, Hidden Power is Rock type.
If it does regular damage, Hidden Power is Flying type.
If it is not very effective (or does not damage at all), Hidden Power is Fire type.

Step 3b: Now battle a Ground/Rock type, like Geodude, etc.
If it is Super Effective, go to Step 4.
If it does regular damage, Hidden Power is Dragon type.
If it is not very effective, Hidden Power is Poison type.
If it doesn't do any damage at all, Hidden Power is Electric type.

Step 3c: Now battle a pure-Water type, like Magikarp, etc.
If it is Super Effective, Hidden Power is Grass type.
If it does regular damage, Hidden Power is Ground type.

Step 4: Battle a pure-Grass type, like Seedot or Shroomish.
If it is Super Effective, Hidden Power is Ice type.
If it is not very effective, Hidden Power is Water type.
If it does regular damage, Hidden Power is Steel type.

User avatar #530298 to #530297 - allnamesrtaken (11/08/2013) [-]
No idea, all of the stats are 6 except for HP and attack. About 99.9% of level 1 eevees have 12 HP, and the 5 in special attack is probably because of the adamant nature.

It's A LOT of work, and hidden power is fairly unreliable unless your pokemon has great IVs.

Basically I don't get how I need to know what I need for what pokemon. I had someone explain Gastly, so maybe I can get a good Gengar. But nothing else fits together to me.

If you dont know what sets to give pokemon, www.smogon.com/bw/pokemon/ is a good place to start as any, I guess.

bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Nature
This will show you what natures do what

As for breeding, just know what the Destiny knot, Everstone, and power items do in relation to breeding
bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Power_items
bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Destiny_Knot#Destiny_Knot
bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Everstone#Everstone

And for EVs you might have to get a little more in depth with that, but youll have to do it if you want competitive pokemon


Also, try using play.pokemonshowdown.com/ to test teams before you commit to anything if youre new

i know its late and that i have asked this question a few times already, but would anyone like to trade there heracrossnitte for my pinsiritte ?
User avatar #530287 to #530231 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
I plan on using it to find Hidden Abilities in Friend Safaris.
User avatar #530289 to #530287 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
i guess that works
User avatar #530233 to #530231 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
As helpful as you have been to me, I regret to say no, I would never, ever, EVER want anything having to do with Pinsir.

Also I don't think I have Heracross's Mega stone.
User avatar #530234 to #530233 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
i just think that mega heracross has the potential to be a cincinno with steroids.. and sadly i have pokemon x
User avatar #530238 to #530234 - alicorn (11/08/2013) [-]
mega pinsir seems just as good though
User avatar #530240 to #530238 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
1) i already have a good nature/ev/iv heracross
2) heracross has skill link and learn rock blast/ bullet seed/ force palm (stab)/ swords dance
User avatar #530242 to #530240 - alicorn (11/08/2013) [-]
Since when does it get those, i thought it only had pinmissle
User avatar #530244 to #530242 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
sorry
bullet seed/ force palm/ swords dance/ pin missile

I have a Heracross, I think. I'll trade that. Got a Ralts/Kirlia/Gardevoir with Trace?
User avatar #530237 to #530236 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
idk maybe... i would need to check.. but im in the e4 atm
User avatar #530239 to #530237 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
If you start a Wonder Trade you can check your pokemon's info no matter where you are.
User avatar #530245 to #530239 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
it seems as though i traded it away knowing that i was getting one from the champ

Yup. From now on, when I say &quot;HA&quot; and I'm talking about pokemon, you know what I mean.   
   
Congratulations.

Congratulations.
User avatar #530281 to #530278 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
cool but why trace ?
User avatar #530284 to #530281 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
It copies the opponent's ability. Therefore, you know right at the begining of a battle if catching it is worth the time, money, and effort.
User avatar #530285 to #530284 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
so you plan on using it as a means to catch others ?
User avatar #530249 to #530245 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
Ah, oh well. Guess it can't be helped. I'll still trade the Heracross. It's Level 1, Japanese, Adamant, Moxie. Horn Attack, Endure, Counter, Rock Blast.

Don't really know how good this is, but whatever really.
User avatar #530259 to #530257 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
Oh, I misunderstood. I thought you wanted a heracross and had a Pinsir.

My mistake. Add me if you want anyways.

THANK GOD I CAUGHT THE FUCK
User avatar #530209 to #530197 - allnamesrtaken (11/08/2013) [-]
31 IVs in SpA and speed.
100% worth it.

what frog?
User avatar #530195 to #530192 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
frogadier i guessing
User avatar #530194 to #530192 - allnamesrtaken (11/08/2013) [-]
A protean Frogadier. Thrown like 15 pokeballs and it's at 1HP.
User avatar #530198 to #530194 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
I have a Protean Froakie, do you want it?
User avatar #530200 to #530198 - allnamesrtaken (11/08/2013) [-]
No thanks, this one is good.
User avatar #530211 to #530200 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
I offered cause at the time you hadn't said you caught it. I don't need it, so eh.
User avatar #530187 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
I think I'll stop trying to get a competative team. There's only three people here who are actually helpful and none of the stats/natures/etc. make sense to me.
User avatar #530199 to #530187 - alicorn (11/08/2013) [-]
To be honest a good nature and ev's are all you really need, iv's only count for up to 31 points per stat anyway
User avatar #530201 to #530199 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
IVs do count with Speed though, every point makes a huge difference with speed.
User avatar #530206 to #530201 - ancientchaos (11/08/2013) [-]
Its piss easy if you only need perfect EVs in that though. It only gets complicated if you want more
User avatar #530218 to #530206 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
Archeops with 31 IVs in Speed outspeeds a Jolly Haxorus with 29 IVs in speed, but doesn't if the Haxorus has 31 IVs in speed. This is real life situations.
User avatar #530222 to #530218 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
who uses archeops anymore.. defeatist kills it
User avatar #530226 to #530222 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
Well yeah, but if it hits first and hard, it doesn`t ever get into Defeatist range. And if it can`t kill something in one hit, it has U-turn.
User avatar #530221 to #530218 - ancientchaos (11/08/2013) [-]
I know what you mean

Jolteon needs perfect speed to give him an edge on crobat and aerodactyl, even though they all have the same speed
User avatar #530196 to #530187 - ancientchaos (11/08/2013) [-]
How do the stats and natures not make sense to you?
User avatar #530203 to #530196 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
They just don't. I don't spend my spare time studying this stuff.....
User avatar #530217 to #530203 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
nature multiplies the whole stat by 1.1 if its positive, but multiply it by 0.9 if it's negative. Each nature has a negative and positive stat, so its best to choose one that doesn't fit with your attacking type, but boosts the stat you're working on the most. Example, if I was training a Gastly, I'd want one that had a -Attack nature because it doesnl't use attack. I'd also want it either +Sp.Atk or +Speed because I want it fast, or to hit hard, and the defenses suck anyways, so it's no point in boosting them.
The two Natures that fit the criteria are Modest: +Sp.Atk -Atk and Timid: +Speed -Atk, so you'd want a modest(for more hitting power) or Timid(to be faster) opposed to anything else.
User avatar #530220 to #530217 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
See, it makes more sense when people tell me how it works, but no one here does that. They just say "google it yourself" and leave you to suffer if you don't know it already.
User avatar #530214 to #530203 - ancientchaos (11/08/2013) [-]
Its not difficult to comprehend

Natures give you +10% in one stat, and -10% in another, unless its neutral

And Im not sure what you mean when you dont understand stats
User avatar #530219 to #530214 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
I mean they don't make sense to me. It's math, and I was never good at it.
User avatar #530223 to #530219 - ancientchaos (11/08/2013) [-]
Its not really math though, its just numbers
User avatar #530224 to #530223 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
Do you understand it all?
User avatar #530225 to #530224 - ancientchaos (11/08/2013) [-]
For the most part, unless youre talking about damage calculation

No body gets that shit
User avatar #530229 to #530225 - cryoticshell (11/08/2013) [-]
Then how could you understand someone not understanding it? You know it, it makes sense to you. I don't know how any of it works, and there's no one to help me anywhere around here.
User avatar #530230 to #530229 - ancientchaos (11/08/2013) [-]
Well itd help if you told me what exactly doesnt make sense to you
User avatar #530193 to #530187 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
just go for what you like.. fuck the stats.. the most you should do is moves and evs
User avatar #530202 to #530193 - princessren (11/08/2013) [-]
natures are kinda important to EVs though
unless you have a neutral nature
User avatar #530205 to #530202 - ecomp (11/08/2013) [-]
neutral natures are shit
User avatar #530204 to #530202 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
i guess natures help

I'm pretty sure it's unobtainable at this moment.

You can choose between other trainers from the game (such as your rivals, gym leaders, etc.) or a representation of your trainer. PSS settings i think.
User avatar #530181 to #530179 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
sounds dumb lol.. ill just keep mine

Yeah, it kinda is.
#530164 - allnamesrtaken (11/08/2013) [-]
Why do I still have this?

Also I think I'm gonna work on getting vivillons, just as a side project.
User avatar #530333 to #530164 - mettih (11/08/2013) [-]
all i need is sandstorm and sand vivillon, then my collection is complete (except the new ones)

I've gotten a few scatterbugs over W.T. though.
#530150 - toxicrepulsion (11/08/2013) [-]
is this pattern rare ?
User avatar #530334 to #530150 - mettih (11/08/2013) [-]
is the most common of all vivillons, since you get them in japan and many people in japan
User avatar #530162 to #530150 - alicorn (11/08/2013) [-]
when they first came out it was nothing but these and moderns on the gts

I sure hope not because I traded one of those away for an eevee.
