>You're in a tense match
>Type switching abound
>Your team is pretty balanced, covers most types
>Opponents team is mainly fire/electric
>3 'mon each left, yours at full health
>Opponents 2 remaining 'mon at around 50% health each
>Opponents 3rd 'mon is a Mega Charizard at full health
>You have no mega-lutions
>Proceed to get stomped

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.

>>The Pokemon Company has announced Pokemon Generations, a new animated series of shorts inspired by every generation of the Pokemon games. Generations will consist of 18 episodes, each varying in length from about 3 to 5 minutes, highlighting some of the biggest moments from the games, all the way from Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow to Pokemon X and Y. Generations will debut on September 16 at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET, with two of the 18 episodes premiering that day. All episodes will hit the official Pokemon YouTube channel.

You literally have no reason not to be hyped for this.

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.

I really liked Yanmega and Togekiss though. The eevees they added to gen 4 were great too. Leafeon is fuckin adorable.

NB because Pichu is actually pretty good in Melee if you're not terrible. He's floaty and has a scaling damage cap. Much better than Lucarigoku.

>Also, I hadn't gotten a 3DS until a few months ago, so I missed all the Hoopa and Diancie giveaways if anyone has any spares.
Go on the GTS and check common Pokemon that are popular as shinies (like Gigalith or Gastly). Wait until you find one that someone is basically giving away (asking for a regular, actually-obtainable Pokemon). Get that shiny, then put the shiny up on the GTS asking for a Hoopa or Diancie.

Also sometimes you can skip the middle man and people are basically giving Hoopa / Diancie away on the GTS, but those get picked up quicker usually.

I love the Gamecube games. Always nice to see a Pokemon story go a different direction from the mainline games and have a darker aspect to them. (Dark for Pokemon I guess...)

Plus at the end of XD you can transfer the purified Pokemon over to your newer games and they have special moves they wouldn't otherwise be able to learn.
