I love Rhydon. I used him in a Nuzlocke of Blue once, and he was one of three surviving guys by the end of the Champ battle.

Fun fact: Sugimori stated that he's the first Pokemon design to be completed, which is supported by the fact that he's #001 in the index of R/B/Y.

And I really wish they tweaked the breeding system in B/W. It still takes FOREVER to get the shit you need.

In terms of true blue favorites, Typhlosion is my ultimate favorite.
I also love Murkrow/Honchkrow and Sneasel.

My Yellow Team that I took to the Elite Four was:
Pikachu
Charizard
Blastoise
Articuno
Zapdos
Moltres

In hindsight it probably wasn't wise to bring the legendary birds, Moltres was the only one that could hold its ground, but Blastoise is my favorite in the group primarily because it managed to win me the game with only 12HP

As for favorite pokemon overall it might be dragonair, I'm not absolutely sure.

Because that's what they did instead of actually improving the AI like they said they did. I've also noticed that it cheats more than it used to, but I suppose The Computer Is A Cheating Bastard has been a staple for Pokémon since the beginning of time.

Not a very practical deck. It'll be very difficult for you to work anything with that many energies. It'll be funny but don't count on winning... ever.

Best decks are single or dual energy decks, my deck right now is a water/psychic. Psychic has good effects, water tanks. Just start out with a starter deck of some elements you like that you can get in the store, and buy a few booster packs. Experiment with some builds, make sure you have a good mix of cards. I almost always end up with too many pokes in my deck, but I knew a guy who had too few in his lightning/psychic, where he used a quick switch strategy.

Enjoying B/W a great deal so far. Has a sense of wonder to it which gives it quite a fresh feel. As fresh as a game copy-pasted 67 times over two decades, I mean.

It's incredibly easy though. Love how the game basically gives you a pogeyman which levels each gym right before they occur. There's even an NPC in every area who'll heal your team for free now.

lucky, my venipede appears to kind of suck. Everyone says that this poke' is a "destroyer of worlds" but when I went to go destroy worlds it backfired. Now I'm running around outside pinwheel forest leveling it because that seems to be the only place it stands a chance.

Anybody have any advice?
>> No. 920
>>919

That's because it's still a Venipede, not a Scolipede. Like all bugs it sucks before it evolves, it's just this time when it does reach it's final form (level 30) it becomes very threatening indeed.

Once it reaches level 20 I think it learns Poison Tail and then at 22 it evolves into baleful tire of sulkiness, after which it can handle itself reasonably well. Make sure it knows Poison Point rather than Swarm, otherwise you won't get anything out of the awesome move Venoshock.

It's not about liking or disliking; it's about the fact that most people that DO dislike blindly think GEN 1 IS THE BEST GEN AND HAD THE BEST DESIGNS EVER THE NEW STUFF IS SHIT BY DEFAULT

Hence the "nostalgiafags" in the title :V

Every gen has a good number of shit and awesome in about the same proportions; it just takes a while for a new gen to sink in. Also, once you start actually playing the game, a lot of the designs you once dislike start growing on you. That happened to me with a number of them, especially Scraggy/Scrafty.

That I understand. I'm not going around bitching and moaning about how Pokemon is RUINED FOREVERZ. I have my opinion about the designs and a majority of the new ones just don't appeal to me at all, but at the same time I love the shit out of some. I fully admit that. I personally DO think that the first two gens had the best overall design. I don't go around rubbing that into the face of everyone who plays gen 5 though.

Now excuse me while I heart Wargle because it's among my very favorites now why can't you be in every Pokemon game ever lhasdlsjalsk
>> No. 937
I'm probably going to get ragged on for saying this but there IS a distinctly higher proportion of just flat-out bad designs in Gen 5 than in previous gens. There were lots of bad ones in Gen 4 as well, I said that in the first place. A lot of them toed the line. But the ones in Gen 5 pretty much take a running fucking leap over the line and land six miles beyond it.

It's like the proportion of shit new designs in comparison to good new designs rises every fucking time.

In my opinion.

Not gonna fight you on this one, but like >>930
said, once you start playing the game, some kind of grow on you.

As an example, I wasn't fond of this pokemon until I learned its english name. Now I laugh every time I see it or Trubbish. Also I wasn't into (S)woobat until I got one.

Then again that doesn't exactly change that some of them suck.

Just finished the main plotline of White with four pokemon in my team. Emboar (Thomas), Sawsbuck (Bambi), Sigilyph (Sentry), Haxorus (Bob). Great ending.

It took me maybe 20 pokeballs of various sorts to catch Cobalion. I imagine I would punch it in the face if I could. To be honest they seem to be the only difficult aspect of this game for me.

You have to breed around 1419 eggs to have a 50% chance of getting a shiny with the Masuda method. That's just under an entire 24 hour period of pure breeding and hatcing at a rate of about 1 egg/minute, which obviously doesn't happen.

Ooohhh. I remember reading that in increased your chances by a good 75% for 5th Gen, and figured a few hours of work would make it happen pretty easy.

remember when i caught that shiny roggenrola in a rom back in october or so? i transferred it to my legit white and now it's a boldore

i wish i had someone to trade with aaaaaaahhh shiny gigalith is so badass


also i think it's pretty cool how if the first pokemon of a species you encounter is shiny, the shiny version will be recorded in the pokedex rather than the regular one.

I am new to stats, but during this past generation I've been doing my best to learn about them. I figure one step in the right direction is to ask someone here.

I caught a Deino not too long ago, but am not sure if it's any good or not- I'd provide a picture but my camera is a PoS. I can provide the stats though:

Deino, level 38
HP-90
Atk- 57
Def- 45
Sp.Atk- 53
Sp.Def- 54
Spd- 39

Judging by the stats of my other pokemon, I'm pretty sure these aren't good ones. should I put in the time and effort to make Deino better or go catch a new one?
>> No. 1003
>>1000
Deino has a three-stage evolution, and it's pretty much pure shit until the third stage. If you're willing to train it all the way up to level 65, it'll suddenly become awesome, the pillar of your team. If not, then you can probably tell it to go fuck itself.

Be wary of stat comparisons, though. That's a dark road, and if you choose to go down it, it may end up consuming you.

I'll be sure to remain wary of that road, then. Thanks for the advice (as well as the head's up)

So I'm working on my Pokemon White team right now, and I realised I need a decent fire-type pokemon (I chose Snivy as a starter), but I really hate the look of Darumaka. It's face just bugs me. I've just arrived at Mistralton City, does anyone know where I can find any nearby wild fire-types?

Also, side note: Current team is Servine, Drilbur, Scolipede, Swoobat, Herdier (Gonna replace him with the fire type) and Panpour.
What 'mon do you all have?

Pic is THE most annoying pokemon of Gen V.

Look in Celestial Tower for Litwick (you can't fight the Mistralton gym leader until you go there anyways) and in shaking grass in Pinwheel Forest for Pansear.

A third, if not time-consuming but totally-worth-it option: Get this guy.

It may seem to be weak/a slow learner at first, but if you're looking for long-term results, definitely go with larvesta (you need surf to get to it though)

However, if you're looking for quicker results/faster leveling, I would follow everyone else's advice.
>> No. 1019

I got Black and I'm in Driftveil at the moment. My team is currently Servine, Tirtouga, Sigilyph, Darumaka, Sandile and Yamask. I keep swapping it around to try to find the best combination, though, and I don't really like the Darumaka either. The only ones I'm married to are Servine (I always keep my starter on me at all times, it's like a loyalty thing) and Sandile (Krookodile: best name? Best name), and I'm open to suggestions.

Also agreed on that STUPID EMOLGA

And I caught a shiny Trubbish, who is now SITTING IN THE BOX FOREVER

I will seriously give you a Zekrom for that Trubbish. Or a Tynamo. Or anything ;_;

So Tynamo's supposed to be rare or something, is it?

>> No. 1023

I caught a Litwick, which has proceeded to kill everything and become the strongest on my team, but I am so getting a Larvesta once I get the Surf HM.

>>1022 I have like 5 tynamo for some reason. Me and my friends refer to them as "Electric Magikarp"

Also, I now have a SHINY ARCHEN. My first shiny, I'm so haaaaaaaappy!

I agree, not sure who thought a main villain that's an autistic guy who ends up starting pseudo philosophical conversations about using animals would be awesome for a kids game, but at the same time I kind of enjoyed it.

So I'm trying to make a team with the derpiest of derps. So far, I have Garbordor with an awesome Rock Polish set, RestTalking Stunfisk, Curse Bibarel, and Autonomize Vanilluxe. I need more derps; who should I use?

Quagsire is too cute to be considered "derpy", at least in my eyes.

Read the post again :V

I think I'll fill the last two slots with Carnivine and Probopass, that latter of which is nearly a perfect counter for Ferrothorn, which is common as fuck these days. Unfortunately, it'd give me a HUGE fighting weakness, so I'm trying to find a way maybe replacing Carnivine and ---- EXEGGCUTOR
>> No. 1074

Some ideas: Dunsparce, Shuckle, luvdisc (though I think you're covered on water types), plusile/minun, swalot, volbeat/illumnise, maybe heatmore (it looks like a derp to me).

Bibarel's a good HM slave, though.

I only have a Vanillice right now, but if its evos retain its "heal every time it's around hail" ability, it's actually pretty good.

I was considering Swalot, but Garbodor that much derpier and causes much more rage in people.

And a lot of people still use Serene Grace Dunsparce and Prankster/Tail Glow/Baton Pass Volbeat. I WANT to use Moody Bibarel, but apparently, Moody is banned because it MIGHT raise evasion.

They have decent bulk, but the ice typing makes it horrible on the defenses. They're much better as outright special attackers and have the stats for it, similar to many other ice types.
>> No. 1079

Hypno might be a choice. I'm glad you got Garbodor, I'd suggest using my lame as hell move set of Fling (hold black sludge), stockpile, swallow and toxic.

Pretty much just toxic, pile x3, if shit's looking tight then fling or swallow as needed.

Hey. I have a question for all ya'll who play competitive pokemon. I'm making a pokemon character (rough design on the right) who is in part a parody of competitive cliches. However, I know almost nothing about competitive pokemon. So -

What's the most cliche'd competitive team you can think of? I'm talking like, strategy, pokemon types, natures, builds, you name it. Just stuff where you walk into a battle and you're like "goddamn, this shit again?" Legendaries are out of bounds, but puesdo-legendaries are fine. I got a basic team up there, but any information/changes would be great. I could probably also read up on what kind of lingo is used. Since you guys seem to be fairly knowledgeable, anyone willing to help a bro out?
