Your favorite shiny Pokemon by Juggler Doris - Sat, 13 Aug 2016 04:41:03 EST ID:b58x+7C1 No.228362 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

This is a little different but I want to see your opinions. What are your favorite shines and why? I like shiny Scizor because Scyther was my favorite Pokemon growing up. When his evolution turned out to lose the scythes and turn red, I thought it was just a big mistake. His shiny version obviously keeps the clamps but the coloration makes me feel better at least.

I'm kinda surprised they didn't get megas or something when OR/AS came out considering Absol, Mawhile, Sableye all got that treatment. I imagine mega Seviper/Zangoose could look really cool. I think Gen 3 had some of the best mon designs overall tho.

I watched one of the anime episodes in which Paul is introduced. I guess Misty had to start running the gym in Cerulean or something, but Brock and some new bitch are chillin with Ash while he does his thing.

Anyway, at first I likened the episode:
to Ash's challenge at the Vermillion City Gym against Lt. Surge, but this episode was SIGNIFICANTLY DARKER __CAPS LOCK__. This thug Raichu holds down what must be Ash's lvl 99 Pikafresh and HYPER BEAMS IT IN THE FACE. Pikachu goes unresponsive and has to have Nurse Chansey and company begin CPR with a defibrillator. I paused it there, but this is worse than that time in the first episode with the spearows and shit.

Is it me or did Pokemon get more real in the last 20 years? It's like that shit in college about children's media "growing up" who am I quoting lol- to meet an aging audience.

that's because Paul was based on Silver from Gold and Silver, who was giant asshole and the son of Giovanni (though paul's dad isnt anyone special iirc). I'm not surprised the episodes with him were darker. there's a couple episodes like that I've heard of where things get darker and shit gets real. people talk about the one where ash gets possessed by an evil emperor the same way. but it's largely the same upbeat adventure show it was when it started. if you really want a fucked up pokemon series just watch Narutaru or something.

>Opponents team is mainly fire/electric

>Opponents 2 remaining 'mon at around 50% health each
>Opponents 3rd 'mon is a Mega Charizard at full health
>You have no mega-lutions

If both players have a full 6 mega team, I can see the appeal. But if just one player has them and the other doesn't, how is that in any way going to be a fair fight? Until ALL pokemon get a mega-lution, I will continue to see mega evolution as a cheap and dirty trick designed to let n00bs (who probably haven't put the time and effort into crafting a deadly team) win and feel superior. Babby's win button.

Fuck Mega Evolutions.

I feel they're all about being another choice. If every monster was mega there'd be no choice, you'd always use megas. But instead the opportunity cost of using a mega is not only using another mega but using the non mega version instead.

I'd still like to see if OP got hosed because he sucks and his carefully assembled team (which somehow ignores an entire section of teambuilding and strategy entirely) was actually just contrary weak or not. Or if he's living in an earlier gen and somehow thinks a static metagame is exciting forever.

Mega charizard isn't the hardest monster to beat honestly even when you don't know which one it is. Mega khan can wreck teams once a very small number of specific counters are removed and I think it's a pox on singles and if that beat him I'd sympathise, his opponent would have been a poor sport. I'm not above bringing it out in doubles but hard counters aren't as necessary when you can have 2 things on the field at once.

I just asked OP what his team was and got no answer. You're not going to make a point to anyone who doesn't already get it.

You're probably right that OP didn't use the tools at his disposal and lost and that's it, but we don't know. Maybe he had a strong team and just no mega. Also what if he just got legit outplayed? Like OP might have had 3 monsters at full HP and they were strong but he'd sacrificed his 3 charizard mega checks earlier in the game? In that case he lost because his opponent played well and he didn't.

If you don't like a thing agree it with your opponent. If you don't like a mechanic that the game is balanced around then if they agree to skip it then you're the one being dealt a favour.

Also hydreigon doesn't get much love these days because modest latios is faster and hits harder. I use it though because my latios is timid and I'm not going to reset Omega Ruby with it's complete dex and 2 super challenges (annoyingly one of the ones I don't have is singles which I did on X) any time soon.

Yeah I don't know competitive mon. I actually use Farfetch'd AND Delibird in most of my teams, but I don't complain about choosing weak mons like OP. If you want competitive play, you follow the meta or lose.

Post those pokemon that you really just love, your best friend pokemanes. My delibird, Dill, is just such a homie. He's always so jolly, and he gets me high as fuck with his dilly pack since he knows "present," and he's codeine purple. We nod together, and he often dozes off.

And Howard, my loyal Farfetch'd, has been through everything with me. When everyone else failed, and there was only a lone, thoroughly cunning duck, armed with a mighty leek, between the elite 4 and me, he came through and swept all of them (at lvl 59). He's brave, honorable, and tough.

IceBergSlim is my shiny Honchkrow, He's a quirky bird, and likes to pimp the female pidgey populations in Kanto. He has a pink pimp hat and is capable of taking hits, so we smoke together a lot.

Quilava will always be my number 1, solely because of my experience having my Cyndaquil pull off a clutch critical at 2hp against Bugsy's Scyther during my first run of Gold. He won the match and evolved, immediately after.

But if I were to have an Ash/Pika-esque deal, it'd have to be Sableye. I make a point to have one on my team anytime it's possible.

This goofy fucker is a failed idea turned bro. Back during the height of Gold and Silver there wasn't much info to be found about the legendary dogs except putting them to sleep. The only pokemon that I ran into that had hypnosis was Stanler so I caught him and started to train him but no matter how much I fucking trained the dopey fucker he was always too slow. I finally ended up getting another pokemon for the job but Stanler stayed as a main on my team just because.

So when Sun and Moon comes out there is a reserved spot for that big nosed goof on my team.

What do you guys think are some good NFEs to use. Pupitar springs to mind, it is a different typing to tyranitar and has an amazing ability. Dragon dance STAB earthquake rocks. Dragonair also is a different typing from dragonite and he a great ability. Shelgon works as well with higher defence than salamence and no weakness to rock or 4x weakness to ice. Seadra is cool. The best NFE is scyther

I use Scyther and Misdreavus a lot for fun. with eviolite they're surprisingly bulky. I wanna raise a Porygon2 since I love that line so much, but it was so much work just to get a good PorygonZ without a 6iv ditto to begin with. I dont wanna start that shit again. Though if it's easy to get bottlecaps in the new game I could just MAKE a 6iv ditto and breed porygon2.
