Okay /po/ what pokemans would you like to have the most if you had a dream team?

Try not to make your decision on their stats but if you do, tell us that's what you're doing. Some people like strategy more than looks but me I've always liked taking pokemon I liked for whatever reason (looks, behavior, some symbolic association) and making them awesome even if statistically they're mediocre. It feels more genuine.

Try to keep it limited to 6 but if you only have 2 or 3 or just one that's totally cool. Say you're a gym leader or trainer out there in a world that has gone full pokemon. What kind of monsters do you train?

Me I pick Tauros because my astrological mars sign is in Taurus and Tauros is an all male pokemon. Taurus is one of those kind of forgotten mediocre pokemon and I like the underdogs. The astrology part is stupid and just as pretend as pokemon but still neat. I like occult/magic stuff for the storytelling archetypes.

I'd want my Tauros to be really strong, fast, brave and aggressive but maybe vulnerable to the trickier kinds of pokemon.. I'd ride him around to go places and his rugged good looks can impress the ladies. I'd teach it Rage or Thrash because Tauros is known for its violent nature, Strength, Giga Impact and Swagger.

Second choice is Rhydon, forgetting that Rhyperior ever existed because that thing took Rhydon and made him into a joke. Rhydon was my favorite pokemon as a kid, I liked that he looked like a rhinoceros and that he was described as being so tough he ate rocks and not even molten lava could harm him. I must've felt kind of weak as a kid or something. I want its personality to be adamant. Cool, calm, collected and unmovable with super high defense, special defense and attack, maybe not the fastest though. He will be really patient and know Rest, Counter, Sandstorm and Thunder Punch.

Next would have to be Houndoom, first time I saw that thing was playing Gold Version and it was just badass. I had a pet Doberman in my care for a while and they're my favorite dog breed. If I ever get a puppy, it's gonna be a Dobermann. I don't know what moves I'd want it to learn, it's got a lot of awesome ones. The mega Houndoom is awesome, he could be the one I toss out when I want my opponent to just shit themselves with fear.

Flygon is pretty cool. Make it learn fly, Supersonic, Screech and Dragon Claw.

Parasect and Slowbro as my powerhouses. With Slowbro's Trick Room, both are now masters of priority. Parasect's Dry Skin means that Slowbro's Surf heals him by 1/4th HP in doubles. Parasect speed-Spores, Slowbro boltbeams, and I polish off their strategy and type coverage with a Marowak, bulky, massive attack stat, and a veritable sweeper under Trick Room.

I would concoct various illicit substances using Parasect's fungal cultures. I would meditate with a psychic's accuracy, floating on Slowbro's shell on a lake. I have probably taught my Marowak how to drum phat beats.

All three of these because they can use transform, and Smeargle has the ability to learn almost everything which is even more neato.

I really like spiders. Pretty much all I need to like these Pokes.


I would pretty much choose Kingler all day, but I felt I had to shout out Crustle since he is also a crab. I am a cancer, so I like crabs and stuff.

Ditto because it's a pink blob that can mimic anything. What's not to love. Most adaptable pokemon ever, literally. Plus cute as fuck I would spend all day hugging ditto and feeling my depression go byebye.

Next pokemon would have to be a ghost type because I'm afraid of ghosts and having one as a pokemon would make them less scary. Probably Mismagius because I like that big witch hat. The description also reminds me of these hallucinations and migraines I used to get as a kid when I'd 'see ghosts' and have freaky night terrors;
"Its cries sound like incantations. Those hearing it are tormented by headaches and hallucinations."

Mismagius has a ton of really good moves too, choosing the best one would be hard but this is what sounds good.


Confuse Ray
Pain Split

Pain Split gets used after Curse to heal Mismagius and speed up the time Curse kills, Confuse Ray is the opener to fuck things up a bit and the 4th move, I guess Toxic would be fine. A real asshole of a pokemon.

Cute and silly. My duck leads my team 90% of the time. Has relatively balanced stats, always the first pokemon to reach level 100. I can sweep the entire elite four and champion with just my duck and a couple of elixirs, letting weaker pokemon I want to level up soak up experience from the exp. share. Also works well as a water-type HM slave (surf, dive, waterfall).

Hypnosis is good for catching pokemon, I've caught all of my legendaries by using a gengar or haunter to put them to sleep then whittling down their health with a weaker pokemon. Dream Eater to recover the health lost while trying to land a successful hypnosis.

A special attack heavy-hitter. I max out sp. atk. EVs and teach it some good sp. atk. TMs with a good typing spread.

Those are my three favorite pokemon, the rest I just choose to get a good typing spread.

Ground, rock, fighting. Very high defense makes for a sturdy pokemon.

Hello all. A pokemon tragedy has befallen me. Someone I know deleted my entire year and a half save file for reasons unknown to me behind my back out of malice... Rather than cry over spilt milk I'm just looking for a few pokemon to replace the special ones I had.

A Torchic (with or without the event speed boost) with blazikenite, a Gligar, pokerus, EV lowering berries, Feebas, Celebi from pokemon bank and any special vivilon. Most helpful for my new game would be the berries, Rus, Gligar, and Torchic.

I know some might be a long shot but I'm just trying to get it all back.... If anyone would be willing or able to help me with it would be greatly appreciated.

The parent with the nature you want the egg to have must be holding an Everstone to pass along its nature. A parent holding Destiny Knot passes along up to 5 of of both parents' IVs.

1) Revelations : The Demon Slayer was an okay B-rate game that had some monster-collecting elements in it. You could merge monsters and shit.


(If you decide to play, I warn you now that the menus in this game suck.)

2) Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 (Cobi or Tara version) was a great game too. It made me wonder why pokemon didn't have a different sprite for every monster. If DWM could do it, then why not pokemon? Maybe they ran out of room? (I don't know how much empty space they had left on the GSC games, but by the GBA era (RSE, FR/LG), they had plenty of empty space on the cart. Perhaps Moore's law saved the day?)

3) Robopon was basically a pokemon clone, but with robots. I've tried playing the game a couple times, but... the graphics are very gaudy, and the music is very beepy, even by GB standards. I wanted to like it, but couldn't.

So I picked up an AR for the GBA at a garage sale for dirt cheap. Came home, tested it on my bootleg Pokemon Emerald and it worked. Now I have a moral dilemma on whether I should use it or not. I think getting event pokemon with it is ok, but I also want shiny pokemon. Now I can get any shiny pokemon I want, they'll seem worthless and it'll take the fun out. So, should I just use it for a few shiny pokemon? My heart says to get rid of the AR before it corrupts me, but my head says to keep it.

I once messed around with an AR for some of the PokEmon games on the DS.
It was good for a laugh, but I didn't keep any of the PokEmon I hacked my way to getting.

If you're having doubts already about getting shinies with it, then it will be likely you'll have some remorse for owning those shinies and you may lose interest and dump them. Like you said, the thrill of finding a shiny is the fact that you can't easily predict when one will show and catching them is an adrenaline rush.

If you don't want to cheapen that, then I wouldn't use the AR. Use it to have a laugh or two, but don't use it to aquire PokEmon you intend to keep for the long-term.
That's just my advice.

I like to use it so I can start my playthroughs with a chosen team. I'll also use the walk through walls cheat to cut out tedious sections (like backtracking because you accidentally jumped a wall you shouldn't have). I don't play competitively though so there's no appeal in having a shiny pokemon apart from aesthetics since the game is fairly easy (except maybe the psychic twins' gym in emerald...)

So I want to make my own home made pokemon sprites. I'm not very good at it. I've learned a couple of basics and I've been on to the "Spriter's Resource" to learn some stuff. Though I can't really get my pokemon to look really good or like at least plausible looking for being pokemon.

I've made some trainer sprites and I've been okay with those, but my pokemon sprites just seem wonky to me and I delete pretty much all of them. I've looked up some youtube videos about it but none have been all that helpful.

So does anyone have some advice that might help me understand better how to make clean looking sprites that seem more animal or monster like?

In general post some of your home made sprites if any of you guys have made any. I guess if I get any better at it, I'll try posting some experimental sprites, but I don't really have any good ones at the moment.

I have been thinking the same thing about the fire/smoke looking misplaced. Maybe try centering the fire a tiny bit more and moving the smoke to the center of the flame and a little bit to the right? Might require you to reshape the smoke but I think it could look much better that way.

OP here, so I don't want to fully engulf the pokemon in flames, I kind of want it to look like it was just recently caught on fire and was starting to catch. I was thinking of extending the flames down his back a little.
Do you guys think the smoke would look better as a plume coming out from the top of the flames, or should I have the smoke slightly coating his body and flowing away from the flames?

I'm sorry.

I'd come over but my DS would get stolen on the bus and when I got there there'd be no trace of you except if I flicked to the back/barely even news segment of the local paper it'd say "Only 5 people died at the local park this week". So instead I'm going to go for a stroll and know that on my journey there's probably no one shadier than me in a one mile radius at any time. I live in a "city" too. I am a country boy with a great education working a white collar job. If I wanted to find some rood bois I'd have to walk to the part of town where the kids pretend they carry knives and if I wanted real ones I'd need to get on a train.

Of course I'm jealous that you have buses that run reliably at night. Hell I'm jealous yours even run reliably during the day.

but you know what I mean, no one's hurt by it unless you're cloning shit you'd not otherwise be able to get or making really difficult to breed teams in moments, unless you have a HA eevee with perfect IVs for hyper voice spam pixellate sylveon then you're not going to gain any noticeable advantages even if you do battle. If you were cloning one of those beasts though, they take fucking ages to breed. I know I bred one. What a ballache.

Weren't those games based around the anime of season 7-8, making them 10 years or so behind the anime?
Are they revamped games or are the games just that behind compared to the series

I get your point, but that's how it's been since they've been cut from the EU and NA games. There's always an NPC somewhere to say that. Definitely a visual update. The original idea behind Mauville was the city was always supposed to be cutting edge because of Watson and his Electric-Type power plans.

If not I deem your methods of breeding to be rather dubious!

But anyway, have you ever thought of giving it a move like Will O'Wisp? Pretty hand for a fire type to be able to inflict a burn right away on something that would be a bulky threat. If you intend to set up Sunny Day, you could give it Solarbeam too. That's quite unexpected and good coverage against water threats.
That's just my two cents anyway...

I was talking with a friend about this and he told me he thought it was because the creators of the pokemon are not very creative and are unable to come up with proper monsters that can apply themselves to the typing logically. In other words they are not very good at inventing new pokemon with original design concepts that are capable of applying to strange type combinations such as Grass/Fire or Fire/Electric.

My opinion on the lack of unique typing combinations, I think that maybe the creators are worried about how these strange typing combos might affect the competitive/online play of the game. I'm not sure if that's the actual reason and I know it sort of sounds like a bad excuse since there are so many things in pokemon that affect whether a specific typed pokemon is useful or not, but I think it's a better explanation than just admitting that the creators of the beloved pokemon franchise just literally don't know how to design new pokemon.

What does /po/ think? I'm always waiting for some really abstract pokemon type combos, and they just never seem to happen.

So here's something interesting I've never really noticed before until just a little bit ago.
So, based on the the idea of why there are not many interesting type combinations, how come the Pokemon games have also not explored their single typing very thoroughly?
As with the issue with Steel, originally there were not very many solid steel type pokemon because of how powerful the typing was by itself, with the first solid steel type being Mawile back in 3rd gen...

How come there are absolutely no solid Flying types except for the one Legendary pokemon, "Tornadus"?

I mean we have a crap load of bird pokemon... and not a single one of them is solid Flying type.
I've never thought that Flying type was all that overpowered, so why has there never been a non-legendary solid flying type pokemon? Could this seriously be a power issue? There's just no way it could be a creativity issue, and I highly doubt it's because they are specifically saving it for future games... is this something they overlooked after all this time? How could solid flying types be completely ignored, especially in the very first generation when they're trying to establish the typings?

This seems really weird to me...

Probably that was just how many they could fit in the first game and adding approximately that number became traditional. For example they added Mew some of the original games because they found out they had space for one more Pokemon + an encounter after they removed the Debug program from the game's memory.

I'm guessing because every normal/flying pokemon is a essentialy a bird. It's more of a thematic thing I think.

Tornadus is a spirit of the skies so that one makes sense, for many others it's more of attribute, as in they CAN fly but they also walk around or sit in trees.

idk maybe we get a pure flying pokemon in the form of a cloud or helicopter or something stupid like that.

Electric/flying and steel/flying.

I think flying is more a concept and yeah tornadus is the spirit of that but otherwise it's more a way of saying "this thing flies" but then it's a thing as well. Which is a bit singular among types.

I imagine they avoided certain type combos for a mix of 3 reasons. 1) Not making sense 2) balance 3) they can reveal it later.

I've always looked at pokemon typings in a similar fashion. The first type is what the pokemon is, and the second type is more of an influence or characteristic of the pokemon.

Shiftry is a plant creature (Grass type) that uses underhanded techniques (Dark type), or Poliwrath is a water creature (Water type) that has learned to hone its fighting techniques (Fight type).

However, I do think some peokemon were a little lost on this idea, for instance, Zubat has always appeared to me as a pokemon that was meant to only fly in the air since it has no feet, and is also very venomous which would imply that this pokemon would be Flying/Poison, however it is Poison first and Flying second, which would mean (based on my understanding of typing) that Zubat is completely poison oriented and has also developed the ability to fly.

So what do you Pokemon masters think of the Omega Red version? Just started and it's a new challenge. Mostly because I have been suborn all this time and never played any thing but red and fire red.

For those who don't know. It's Kanto region with all 3rd gen pokemon, no trade evolution requirements. All gym leaders have a full roster too. It's supposedly pretty hard.

I like the Fire Red hack Liquid Crystal.

It's Pokemon Crystal with 3 gens, 3 zones including a original zone, and the graphics of Fire Red.

The only sad thing is that it's buggy as hell and hasn't been updated for over a year. Onix is so buggy that the game crashes when you try to teach him a TM or if you trade a bellsprout to that kid for one. Also, Noctowl can't Fly apparently.

There's also icon bugs, Whitney of the Goldenrod gym looks like missingno.
