#85 to #35 - mrfop (10/03/2013) [-]
Overrated piece of **** ? Y'know this form may actually make him one of, if not, the most powerful starters? It's Attack stat has been significantly increased and he's now a Dragon type. It's also gained the ability "Tough Claws" which means that physical attacks do +2. So Dragon Claw with +2, STAB and a Dragon Gem could kill ******* anything. Also Imagine that with Fire Fang? Or Flare Blitz? +2 Flare Blitz with STAB, in the sun and a Fire Gem/Life Orb. He's not an overrated piece of **** anymore. He's a ******* monster.

He's still gonna take 50% damage from stealth rocks
He has to take the damage cause he can't be sent out as mega charizard
User avatar #94 to #89 - mrfop (10/03/2013) [-]
So? If that does happen you'll be in a bad place yeah, but you can still use a Life Orb'd, +2, STAB Outrage. Face it, it's not a ****** Pokemon anymore, I'd even go as far as saying it'd give Mega Garchomp a run for it's money.

Haha! I do think Dragonite is pretty cool :')

Nevertheless if you can't admit that Charizard isn't actually bad anymore then I'm done here! Just for the record I don't actually like Charizard that much, Venusaur is the king of Kanto starters. It's just pretty strong now and I don't see how you don't get that.

If you don't care or you're not doing to use them I don't see why you had to comment. Aaand no. Nothing can get worse than fan made Sonic characters. Charizard might be overrated but that's because he actually played a part. He's a pokemon Ash had trouble with just like Pikachu. His first edition card is worth quite a bit too. Now Pikachu is overrated too, I still love them though. You can't deny Charizard is a great pokemon. Let me ask you, what's your favorite pokemon?
#45 to #42 - nyanturtwig (10/02/2013) [-]
You asked and you received
Something is worse than sonic fan made characters It's Mega Charizard X
I'm not talking in context of the anime which sucks btw, it was only good when as a child
Charizard is a teriible pokemon. It has a 4x weakness to stealth rocks which knocks it down to half health as soon as you switch it in, putting it in the bottom of the competitive tiers.
User avatar #47 to #45 - mustlol (10/02/2013) [-]
So it sucks because it's not good competitively? Charizard can learn steel type moves too, last time I checked Steel is effective against Rock. I also asked for your favorite, I don't care about your squad.
#48 to #47 - nyanturtwig (10/02/2013) [-]
Stealth rocks is an entry hazard, it does damage when a pokemon is put into battle
none of the ****** steel moves that charizard can learn will help him what with there low base attack and other moves with lower accuracy . There aren't many good things going for charizard, other than all the fantards having constant orgasms about "mah black dragon type charizard"
and if you're going to make me pick a favorite then I choose bellossom

Am I the only one that likes both of Charizard's mega evolutions? I really love the X version because ******* Dragon type and blue/black design but the Y version also has some charm for the original and really ups the special attack.
User avatar #18 to #17 - mustlol (10/02/2013) [-]

User avatar #29 to #27 - mustlol (10/02/2013) [-]
I'll just trade for it I guess. I just hope there are better legendaries or psuedo legendaries, i'm not feeling Fairy types at all.
User avatar #38 to #29 - fireprincess (10/02/2013) [-]
Yea I'll probably do the same thing. I don't really care for the fairy type. I don't use most of the pokemon it was added A new type is nice but they could have went with something cooler imo.
#43 to #38 - mustlol (10/02/2013) [-]
Doesn't bother me one bit, i'll just stay away from them. Dragon types for life.
#87 to #19 - pwnmissilereborn **User deleted account** (10/03/2013) [-]
I prefer Yveltal and I like the Y version of charizard better because of the looks and the special attack boost.

So it's a win-win for me.

I don't know how someone can spoil a pokemon game.

They've been the same concept forever.

Get a starter

Leave home

Battle gym leaders

Wonder why people have been standing still for so long

Take down an evil corporation

Battle Elite 4

Try to catch them all

Don't catch them all

Put game down for 8 years

Pick it up again and play
User avatar #68 to #64 - akkere ONLINE (10/03/2013) [-]
Spoiler: You will only really catch 5% at most of the Pokemon that are actually in the game before putting it down and moving onto playing the next big game release.

Now I've ruined everyone's game because of this.

People don't like having all the details removed. Half the fun of the Pokemon game is seeing all the new places and the new pokemon for yourself, with a whole new team.

Those may be the outline the series has tended to follow, but everything that gives the series it's true meat can be spoiled and some people really don't want to know about the whole mega evolutions, fairy type, new pokemon, new evolutions, new gameplay features, etc.

spoilers? What possible spoilers? It's pokemon. What could they possibley change? Maybe you will fight 9 gyms instead of 8? Maaybe it will have a actual story with adult characters that don't act like 6 year olds? OH! I'll bet it won't have like 18 tutorial sections teaching us how to battle, use the menus, walk around, talk to people, and use items.
What could they do? NOT have you catch creatures for battle?
User avatar #53 to #49 - nommonsterbaa (10/02/2013) [-]
The games are meant for younger kids, yet teenagers, adults, pretty much anyone can enjoy the games. If you're old enough that tutorials and such are not needed, you should also be old enough to get over it and play a great game. If you really just don't like them, don't play the damn games. Nobody if forcing you.

User avatar #56 to #55 - bothemastaofall (10/02/2013) [-]
No I'm just laughing my ass off that som people think that having a few new evolutions for an aging rpg is enough to justify buying it.
I mean, their plot went from world setup, to extra legendaries, to climate change, to physics, to god. Whats left?
#63 to #56 - Visual (10/02/2013) [-]
Well the Pokemon games were never that strong on story, I'll give you that, but if you're playing Pokemon for the story and getting pissy about it, then you're not really enjoying it for it's strongest feature. Which is catching pokemon and battling other trainers to be the best. Although the challenge is that you'll never be the best because someone else out there always has a better team and strategy than you do.

The new installments add new ways to battle and level your Pokemon, add over a hundred new Pokemon, update the visuals to be more appealing and give you and your Pokemon-playing friends a fun new game to play together. New Pokemon reveals give people excitement on who they'll be adding to their teams and there's nothing wrong with that.

If you're fine at sitting behind a computer screen and scowling at everyone for getting hyped for a new game that will affect you in no way with it's release, then maybe it's time to reconsider what you're doing with your life.

Me and like 5 or 6 of my buddies are gearing up for release day and will be playing the game together.

pokemon is the same **** since the begining, just new ugly as pokemon all years

and then people criticize call of duty but its the same boring ****
User avatar #92 to #14 - iridium (10/03/2013) [-]
1: no it isn't.

2: CoD was fine for its first several games. The problem is instead of expanding it keeps getting dumbed down. The campaign for MW1 was pretty solid, but the next 2 MW campaigns just kept getting weaker and more bland as the games became almost entirely about Multiplayer. Pokemon games core gameplay remains in tact, but each game expands on the last as more recent ones have featured better AI, more complex battles. If you play Red and Blue and then Black and White 2, they're almost completely different from one another. It pretty much progresses at the same pace as any other series of game does.

3: CoD is full of dumbass kids online who plague online. Any kids who you would be playing Pokemon with are usually a lot more tame at least in my experience at going to conventions, in part because you're playing with them in person. , and online mode has no voice communication. Most of the fans of the series who you actually will end up playing multiplayer with will be surprisingly mature considering the games are, quote unquote, "made for kids". The rest of the community, apart from the insatiable ones, is fine.

4: Pokemon main series games are released at a pace of 1 for every 3 years. CoD is annual. It gets stale a lot quicker. That kind of issue led to the almost-death of the music game genre, because Guitar Heroes and Rock Bands were coming out every couple months.

5: By nature, games like Pokemon feature more replayability, so they get stale a lot slower, so why would they really need to change full circle in the first place? Pokemon also sees far fewer imitators, with the only competition of games that really play like it it's really ever had being Digimon (which hasn't been that popular in like a decade), Monster Rancher (same), Dragon Quest: Monsters (way more popular in Japan, cult status here) and SMT which usually has M-rated cult games. CoD clones though are a dime a dozen.

6: Grammar and Spelling, ************ .
User avatar #99 to #92 - iridium (10/03/2013) [-]
Also, let's not forget the Pokemon series never had the problem where half the company quit because their publisher was being a douchebag.
#59 to #14 - Visual (10/02/2013) [-]
Pokemon has a great gameplay mechanic that makes the games last longer compared to CoD which can lose it's luster fast because the game mechanic isn't that fun anyways. Every new Pokemon generation they add new ways to battle (Triple Battles, Rotation Battles, Sky Battles, Special rules tournaments) and it works, while all CoD does is add new guns and barely even update the visuals, let alone the game engine. (Keep in mind that Game Freak update the visuals and game engine immensely every new gen).

There are many reasons that Pokemon still lives on and it appeals to many more people and is actually FUN.
User avatar #16 to #14 - aquaekk (10/02/2013) [-]
I can see your point. Both of them use the same base engines.

However, we're talking creatures and art here, not guns and HUD.

Guns are real life things. And yes, some pokemon are based from real life things, but with a new design.

All CoD does is take real-life guns and make them modern or tweak them.

I like CoD. I play it for fun. But it is the same **** .

I like Pokémon. I play it for fun. But atleast it strives as hard as it can to be different.
User avatar #102 to #16 - skinjacker (10/03/2013) [-]
CoD is meant to look like real life... The whole point of it is not to be different. Pokemon is a fake world, and it's meant to be different. Not trying to offend Pokemon players here, but it's true.
