Pokemon B&W looks epic, and the new combat system in the game looks awesome too.

Honestly, I'm not fond of the new battle system. While the the movement is a nice addition, 3-on-3 fights seem like a bit too much. I would have rather liked to see 1-on-1-on-1 fights. But hey, that's just me.

I'm excited for the new games and the new pokemon, but I'm willing to wait until next March or April. I'm not too excited at this time.

Pokemon sucks. Everyone knows this. Durrrr.

A friend of a friend is over on Smogon bitching that they should ban Stealth Rock before they start banning Pokemon. Cuz, you know, it's warped the entire metagame and pretty much defines tiers.

It's especially to blame for the offensive metagame. It's not that Pokemon are stronger than before (though Choice Specs/Scarf did help), it's that SR turns so many 2HKOs into OHKOs and 3HKOs into 2HKOs etc. It's ridiculous.

This, it pretty much screws up anything. Either tone the damage down or Ban it I say.

I'm really tired of Stealth Rock. I had it on my Empoleon for a while, but after thinking about it, I really don't want to run a pokemon with Stealth Rock. Its just way overused.

I'm hoping Game Freak steps up in BW and nerfs it. For the sake of trainers everywhere.

Again I have to agree, also Id like to see GF fix Mold Breaker.

So while trying to figure out a possible moveset for my shiny Golbat to use when it becomes a Crobat (thanks to being unable to breed down shininess now =/), I came across a dilemma; If Crobat uses Mean Look, then U-turns out, does the Pokemon that comes in for the switch keep the Mean Look status on the foe?

Try:
Crobat@ Black Sludge
Mean Look
Toxic
Super Fang
Taunt/Roost

Use it as a lead or wall killer.

Nope. U-turn does not pass stats/other things like Baton Pass does.

Well it's the Mew pokemon, so it's a little special. And it's #000, which is bizarre. Poor Missingno...

New pokemon. Nothing special though.




Also, GXG still owes me a copy of SoulSilver. :x


Would you take a Japanese copy of SoulSilver?

Anyway, has anyone actually tried to acquire at least one copy of all 493 pokemon? You know, actually "catch 'em all"? I don't mean complete the pokedex, I mean getting a legitimate copy of all of them.

I took me about three months, but I managed to get all of them. Believe it or not, some of the original 150 pokemon were the hardest to get, because I didn't have a copy of FireRed or LeafGreen. I had to get most of them over the GTS.

I cant read Japanese. :geek:


Dang. I have a spare Japanese copy of Soulsilver that I'm not using. I'd be willing to give you that.

If you want an english copy, you'll have to wait until I can get some money. I'm pretty low on cash right now.

I use BL/UU Pokemon whenever I can. Go Azumarill!

And yeah, I have legit versions of all 493 Pokemon in Platinum.

I wish Stealth Rock was nerfed so that it doesn't do super effective damage. Also, I guess have it not do not very effective damage as well. I want to see Charizard rise through the ranks again.

Stealth Rocks... you either love them or hate them... These days, it's foolish to enter a competitive battle without a Stealth Rocker on your team. Many pokemon that would be Ou (Charizard) are bumped down to NU because of it. At the same time, however, it prevents monsters like Dragonite and Gyarados from setting up a DD, switching out, then setting it back up again as much as they like without risking loosing their mon... Personaly, I think that Stealth Rocks is a good idea, and I think Gamefreak might just actually make mroe Steath Rock-ish moves, like Stealth Ice (Boy, will THAT be alot of fun for Salamance and Garchomp in Ubers...)

Who knows that could be real but we'll find out when Coro Coro and Pokemon Sunday announce more new Pokemon! :D
