I don't like most of them honestly, especially the starters and legendaries, the rest are generally okay though.

I agree completely, although I don't like the whole Black and White 2 thing...
I haven't had a chance to play through black or white, know where I could download a ROM? I've got $1.75 and that's it

What's interesting about Black and White 2 is it offers much more opportunity. It's the first direct Pokemon sequel ever. It's just really interesting thinking about it. And I heavily recommend White version. It was in my opinion better than the 4th gen. Not sure where you can find it though.

I miss those days. Now when i asked my friend for a pokemon battle he went on about tiers, EVs, IVs, held items, movesets, base stats, natures, etc. I miss just choosing your favourite pokemon to fight your friend with

ok, what the **** does EV and IV mean?
#591 to #254 - zombiesurfer
Reply 0
(08/09/2012) [-]
It's something to do with their stats. IV means individual values which is what pokemon are "born with" and i don't think you can change them.

EV means effort value. each pokemon you fight will give you 1 "point" in an effort value, for example, zubat is speed, shuckle is defence, etc. and when you gain 4 of these points, when you pokemon levels, you will gain 1 stat point for the 4 values you have. for example, if you kill 4 zubat, when your pokemon levels up, you will gain 1 speed point. it maxes out at 256 of these points so you can only gain a bonus of 64 stat points from this.

And as complicated as that **** is, i think it pretty much ruined battling for me. If you have one guy who knows all the mechanics of EVs and IVs and all that, then he can instantly gain a massive advantage.

It took me bloody ages. You have to scan ever piece of water and fish 3 times ish in each. The best place to do it is the first lake first, though. This is because that first lake holds something like a quarter of the water in the whole area, so it's likely 1 of the six spots is there. I'm dreading trying to find a milotic in Platinum, though. Considering trading my Emerald one to Platinum (After cloning)

I always choose Mudkip
.__.
When choosing a starter, I always look at the types.
The only starter that remains single-typed is Treeko
I prefer multi-typed pokemon, because more advantages against other pokemon
This leaves behind Mudkip and Torchic
Water > Fire

Also Swampert is immune to electrical attacks, which is uaually a pain in the ass when using water pokemon

Speaking as a Pokemon master. I believe you are a true trainer someone who is willing to cry for a Pokemon is a true trainer. Unforeseen circumstances made you lose your team which is sad, but everyone must know nothing can last forever. Don't dwell in the past strive for the future.

Try this...
I had a Charizard card, too. My cousin asks me about it a bunch of times, and I refuse to trade for a long while. Finally I break down and ask what he'd have in return. A shiny Lapras. Still not as good as my Charizard, but he claims it to be worth even more. Being the clueless kid I was to rarity and worth, I agreed to trade. I proceed to tell my older sister about this cool new card I got for my Charizard. "Wait, what? No. Dark Charizard is worth way more than that Lapras." My face probably showed absolute confusion, because at that age I didn't know how my family is made up of complete assholes and liars. I ask her to go get my card back for me, but she refuses. Saying she's tired of doing that sort of thing. (She's never had to do it all that much before, but she likes to think she was some sort of protector to me. Yeah, whatever, sis. **** you. If you really were some sort of protector, you would have beat his ass for lying and taking advantage of my young age.)

To this day, I've not forgiven most of my family for doing lots of little things like that...
And that's one of the incidents that started it.
