I remember a time...
Where nobody gave a **** about a pokemon's Stats...
Now it's just a race to get the ultimate pokemon, rather than to catch your favourite one...

Oldschool Pokemon Playing will always be the best...

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
User avatar #254 to #71 - samxdaxman (08/09/2012) [-]
ok, what the **** does EV and IV mean?
User avatar #591 to #254 - zombiesurfer (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.

Whenever i start a new game after transferring my pokemon to Heart Gold i always plan my team from the start
I asked my friend who was she thought was better Primeape or Hitmonlee
She gives me a lecture about their EV's and IV's
I just wanted to know which you preferred

yeah...
the only time I lose interest in a conversation about pokemon, is when they bring up tactics with stats and stuff...

User avatar #485 to #383 - anonymouslive (08/09/2012) [-]
Milotic and Flygon were my favorites. I always use Milotic as my main water pokemon if I can.
User avatar #486 to #485 - sefercil (08/09/2012) [-]
i could never get a milotic ._. no patience by the time i learned how to get it...
User avatar #501 to #486 - anonymouslive (08/09/2012) [-]
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)

absol is a badass ************
User avatar #81 to #80 - walcorn (08/08/2012) [-]
Sableye is actually pretty good...

His type combination of Ghost and Dark makes sure no attacks are super effective against him
User avatar #82 to #81 - elitetroll (08/08/2012) [-]
yeah he was so ******* useful on against brawly
User avatar #85 to #82 - walcorn (08/08/2012) [-]
yeah

Fight/Normal/Psychic = 0X power agaonst Sableye
also Spiritomb I think...
User avatar #86 to #85 - elitetroll (08/08/2012) [-]
yeah, also im starting a new emerald save now, what starter should i use and what should i choose for my other 2 pokemon ill get early on
User avatar #87 to #86 - walcorn (08/08/2012) [-]
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
User avatar #88 to #87 - elitetroll (08/08/2012) [-]
true, okay i wil use mudkip, now what 2 other pokemon should i catch within the first few cities
User avatar #89 to #88 - walcorn (08/08/2012) [-]
Zigzagoon because "HM Slave"
User avatar #90 to #89 - elitetroll (08/08/2012) [-]
maybe, i usually just skip the first two towns pokeon and get sableye and aron from the cave, and then i dont really remember the rest of my team when i played saphire as a kid
User avatar #91 to #90 - walcorn (08/08/2012) [-]

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.

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.

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.
