Wondering why typing combinations are not a larger variety? by Officer Eugene - Sun, 22 Mar 2015 13:48:04 EST ID:YM1ABRaI No.226272 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

So, I was just thinking, why do you guys think the pokemon games have not made more diverse pokemon typing combinations?
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.

I had my doubts about even justifying a remake of the third gen games, and now I am so glad I got this. I know the feeling will wear off but for now this is the coolest thing ever.

The feeling doesn't really wear off. I mean the "WOAH CONTROLLABLE FLYING" novelty does a LITTLE bit but it's honestly useful as hell.
Effectively being able to fly without having a Pokemon that knows fly is fucking amazing

Actual spoilers here, beware. It regards how you encounter Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina in ORAS: If you have Mespirit/Uxie/Azelf in your party and you fly in a certain area, you'll encounter Dialga (AS) or Palkia (OR). If you have Dialga and Palkia in your party and you fly over *I THINK* Sootopolis, you'll encounter Giratina.

Nah. I used the Gameshark extensively and when you have illegitimate Pokemon, or you can't tell which are legitimate and which aren't, it's like using cheats in any other game. You can complete it, but unless there's a shit ton of violence involved, it's not fun to just blow through it with no challenge IN MY OPINION

But I don't know why people get angry about it, don't see why it matters how other people play the game and you can almost always tell legitimate shinies from fake on the GTS. Of course most of the real ones are probably cloned but c'est la GTS

Hey, I have a question for you /po/ (or like Danky, and the 2 others who still come here. Sigh, I miss the golden age...)

Let me give you the scenario. You've been searching for (I dunno, i'm playing OR right now) a Swablu, because you want an Altaria that can digivo- err... MEGA EVOLVE. Suddenly, you spot one. And OH SHIT. It's fuckin' shiny. Cue battle music. You send out your trusty (Insert personal favorite here) and in a flash the fight is on. It's quite epic, Swablu gettin it's licks in when suddenly KABOOM!

Theres bombs exploding all around you and they hit Swablu and your partner, both are unconscious as a net scoops them both up. Shit. It's Team Rocket! 'I am way too baked for this shit.' you think. They do the motto which somehow leaves you paralyzed, then they start flying away in their balloon, lifting quite a ways up. Your pokemon wakes up, in the net. It is quite injured. It manages to break the net and both it and the unconscious Swablu start plummeting. Swablu is unconscious, it will die when it hits the ground. Your pokemon is awake, but too hurt to do much of anything (including fly, if it can.) You quickly pull out it's pokeball, "Faggot, return!." The beam hits it in free fall and it vanishes. You have no time to send out another Pokemon. Only one thing to do. "Go!!! Pokeball!!"

My question /po/, is this: How good is your aim? Do you catch the Swablu, saving it's sexy shiny life? It's falling at nearly terminal velocity. There's a bit of a breeze. Can YOU hit it with that Pokeball?
What if you just weakened it on the ground and it was a fairly small Pokemon? How close would you have to be to hit it with the ball? We all like to make fun of Ash and call him a shitty trainer because he is but he's never thrown a ball and missed. Could you have caught Pidgeotto in mid air like that? How many of you would throw the ball 3 times then walk up to the weakened 'mon and just poke it with the button in defeat? Set up a small throw pillow on the other side of the room and try to hit it with your pokeball toy. Shut up, we all have one. If you really don't, use a tennis ball or something, fuck I'm not doin…

I've always assumed that Pokeballs had a Pokemon seeking homing system. You just toss it at the little fucker and the ball will fly and hit the Pokemon on it's own. lol. Like how the Pokeball Misty's Psyduck resides in rolled right up the guy. I mean that was writer's prerogative but still...

Me, I'd probably fuckin' miss. But if I had a special Pokeball, probably yeah.

Well buddy, thanks for mentioning me specifically in regards to this question.
First of all I'd be pretty impressed that I just witnessed a Team Rocket motto in person, but if they fuck with my catches, they're gonna have to suffer some consequences.

When it comes to catching that Swablu, in all likely scenarios I could quite easily miss the throw. I'm pretty okay at catching PokEballs, y'know like that whole cocky motion of throwing it up and then catching it back in your hand again.
My aim isn't good though, so I'd be relying on luck.

In fairness I think the best approach is to just dive where Swablu is gonna fall and grab it in your arms. Then you could totally save its life yourself and it'd think you're a pretty cool guy and join you of its own will.
You know, friendship and all that crap.

Thank you for the response! It was a fair one too. I'm not sure if I would catch it. My first instinct would be to send out a mon to catch it, but, the time factor. My aim isn't bad, but it's moving really fast...I'm not sure. I'd say I have 30%chance of hitting it. Maybe I should inject some X Accuracy first.

I always assumed the balls home in to some extent. The way they are often deflected (especially if it's someone else) means you just need to be near, however I'd probably stand under it and throw up. Upwards. If I'm not fairly close I'm boned, I have no hand eye coordination, it's why pokemon is one of the few competitive video games where I'm (just) above average at it, because my shitty nervous system has to really freak out to fuck shit up (it still does, but rarely). I rely on my wits.

I think it's probably got some degree of homing.

The real question is would I time it right?

Well, I forget what season it was (or even which region...) but there was an episode of the anime (Yeah, I watch the anime, OP is a faggot remember?) where Ash and co kind of get drafted into teaching these little kids some basic trainer skills. One of the activities they had to do was throw fake pokeballs at targets and the kids missed all the time. Based on this, I figured they didn't home. Ash eventually shoes them like, "no no, like this *Turns hat around* Pokeball, go! *Bullseye*

How is saying your favorite Pokemon game is X anything like claiming the newest Star Wars movie is your favorite? The newest Star Wars movie hasn't even come out. I don't think there's anything wrong with liking the newest version of something. Nothing (not even Pokemon) needs to have its adoration validated by nostalgia or 100+ hours of playtime and a box dedicated to shinies. If the newest version is someone's favorite, then that's fine. Any claim otherwise and you might as well be bitching that Bob Dylan started making rock instead of folk. Old =/= Good. New =/= Good. My favorite =/= Your opinion to dictate.

NB because this whole thread is potato.

x and y have awesome features and a better storyline than most of the others. Y is my favorite so far because of said features and an adult storyline that shows pokemon battles can get lethal (da war and whatnot) if they just carry on after the pokemon faints.

Trainers throw their pokeballs to release pokemon, right?

Do the balls boomerang back to their hands?
Do they scurry to pick them up right after every battle?
Do they just return their pokemon to a new pokeball?

I don't get it.

Another thing, if anybody knows, why specifically do trainers pay eachother money after a battle?

I'm actually curious about both of these, I've never understood them.

I have a basic sort of question I wondered since I was a kid watching the tv show: do pokemon who evolve shed their old personality?

When you grew up how did you change? Their body just instantly transforms. It's obvious from in game they keep their nature IVs and the traits associated with their IV score, so they change but are still them surely?

The show addressed this. Charmander was faithful and friendly to Ash but was always trying to prove itself. When it evolved to Charmeleon, it realized it was strong as fuck and that Ash was a pussy, so it stopped listening to him. It evolved to Charizard and kept the same personality, but eventually remembered that Ash cared for it when IT was a pussy, so he stopped being quite as much of a dick, but still a dick.

I imagine there are a couple, like Parasect (it's taken over by the giant mushroom), Hydreigon (3rd head), maybe some others that become smarter or change so much that their behavior is drastically different (i'd probably act a lil' different if I could suddenly fly).

But in general, no.

I found it. Their IVs and this don't change, neither does their nature. I think it's like being the same person but subject to bodily changes as I said but this is the actual thing I was thinking of. It's in the mechanics.

This is my UnderUsed team for the showdown main server. I'm not really looking for criticism but more of what do you think really threatens this team that I should be aware of.

「Najin e-mFire」 (Beedrill) @ Beedrillite
Ability: Sniper
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature
  • Protect
  • U-turn
  • Drill Run
  • Poison Jab
Beedrill is the team's mega evolution, but unlike most it is definitely not the star. Most games Mega bee will never come out or I'll sack it for free damage or a switch. Adamant because it DOES bring the pain and nothing bar crobat, which I will never kill anyway outspeeds it.

「Cheap Trick」 (Umbreon) @ Leftovers
Ability: Synchronize

I don't know shit about UU and I've been paying more attention to doubles lately. However taunt+sucker punch is not actually a very surprising combo, taunt eases prediction.

I like the beedrill set though beedrill is always going to be walled by certain types. However with those monsters out the way it's terrifying. I know that it fears strong priority attacks, but most of the threatening users are in OU or uber. No choice banded espeeds or priority brave birds and flying quick attacks to worry about in...Darmitan is another monster who benefits massively from the the metagame defining threats of singles (and to some extent doubles too) being absent like beedrill.

Donphant is probably pretty good in UU, would an assault vest give it more survivability? I guess it depends what hits it keeps taking.

Haxo is a really strong attacker, scarfed with max attack and mold breaker I can see it being really good for just wrecking shit. It can get DDance but it's too frail for setup, I reckon a scarf or band set is probably more practical. Probably scarf is the most sensible.

I've nearly got my doubles team set up, I've sort of got an entire spare one that also looks good but I need some black sludge. Going to have to farm that. When I've actually finished and used it a bit I'll get back to you. I recently made a singles team for the hoenn challenge but honestly it wasn't very good. It had some strong monsters like focus band breloom but I fucked it up a bit and couldn't get all the stuff I wanted. No speed boost blaziken or Msalamence which I really would have preferred to what I made do with.

Adamant Shell Smash Cloyster one-shots your entire team except Umbreon (which it has a 75% OHKO chance against with rocks up) if it finds a chance to smash, which it can pull off easily against Donphan or Umbreon and come out healthy enough that your priority can't kill it. Donphan's EQ does somewhere between 30-40%, Lucario's Espeed is around 30-35%, and Umbreon's Sucker Punch is 15-18%.
If either Lucario or Umbreon is dead, you don't have the priority or speed to kill a Smash Cloyster if it's full. It can eat a Poison Jab or Outrage, smash, and come out healthy enough that a +0 Espeed won't kill it. If you can force it out after it uses White Herb, obviously a +0 Espeed against -2 Def Cloyster will do 60-70% damage and kill it pretty cleanly, but Cloyster could be somewhat problematic.

This does assume it gets a free switch. If it comes in on a donphant spinning or putting rocks up though that'll do. I guess that's why offensive spinners are more popular in OU. If it takes a hit coming in then it's going to lose one shots on many enemy and will have to stomach a second non priority hit before it can start sweeping.

Darn, luke and haxo will all fuck it up if it comes in on them in an attack. And if it switches into a beedrill U turn it's basically deadweight. For half the team if it switches in on an attack (and any attack at that) it will lose without doing any damage, or doing minimal damage. Dam either OHKOs or 2HKOs whatever move it's locked into, haxo using poison jab won't KO but the other moves will (and if there's rocks it'll KO thanks to cloyster being ice).

If the opponent has cloyster he can handle it as long as it doesn't get a free switch. He could even try luring it with a double switch using donphant as the bait and about.. half his team carry fighting moves so he has 3 usable monsters to hit it with. The only problem is that 2 of them will be choice locked so a ghost or crobat can reverse the free switch situation pretty quickly and leave him in an awkward situation but if you can keep hazard dominance then you can chip at cloyster thus bringing him into priority OHKO range.

good luck getting hazard dominance if your setter and spinner grants cloyster that setup opportunity though. nb for adding to a post.

Does anybody have any nice ORAS shinies? I just bred this little fucker earlier today, I'm so glad I went out and got the shiny charm before I bred a single pokemon or even battled on cartridge. Also what 4th move could I run? Will-o-wisp?

I just caught a shiny remoraid yesterday when I was fishing them up training my serperior. It's nature decreased it's speed so I'm thinking trick room with a malamar or something.

You know contrary serperior is now available legit now? If not, they'll be rare as fuck but I'll have some HA snivy/tepig/oshawatt/tyrunts going at some point. Just got other things that need doing right now. Like finishing my doubles team (assuming I can ever get flash cannon for heatran, the island won't spawn) and building something for the ultimate showdown event.

Yeah pretty much the only reason I was training one haha, I just got the Emboar event today but I could definitely use one of those tyrunts. Tyrantrum is such a cool looking pokemon.

I think I can guess the code for Samurott given the trend so far but it'll be nice to confirm.

It'll be pokemon503 given that the others have just been pokemonxxx with the xxx being their number. I checked other people had already spoiled it before I did the meowth is out the bag. "pokemon497" for your serperior guys
