I still (and will) never evolve into 2nd gen pokes because I am O.G. and cherish my fond memories with the original 150.
Are there /po/ Masters that only dabble with the original red, blue, and yellow?

I still have my original Blue cartridge, glitched of course, and I also have Pokemon Pinball, Pokemon: TCG, and Pokemon Yellow. Haven't really played anything past them, and I like the simple oldschool nature of the originals, though I probably have some fun in store if I try the newer ones. Also the TCG on Gameboy is very good, the second one only released in JP has been fan translated.

Fuck, XY was like I KNOW YOU LOVE NOSTALGIA. You can catching a fucking mewtwo (Y is definitely the better mega mewtwo thanks to insane special, speed and the insomnia ability though char Y is better for doubles and X for singles). You get one of the original starters given to you after the first gym too.

What are your favorite ways to make the game a little harder/more fun?
I like the idea of Nuzlocke but I think it sounds like it would get boring - faint, release, catch new poke, grind for a million years, ad infiitum, until you finally beat it. You'd just be constantly raising new pokemon.

Anyone else have know of any similar set ups? I've thought about doing a team of all one type like a gym leader, but I don't know how I'd pick which one to use and it seems like it would be hard as fuck. But maybe worth it. Idk. Thoughts?

Oh and that reminds me that I own a Red version cartridge, so I once ran a game with just Charmander. Did not evolve him, had a team of HM slaves, and it was brutal. My HM slaves were all cute mons because I'm already running with Charmander. For some awesome reason, crit ratios in gen 1 are all fucked up, so after a certain lvl, every single Slash was a critical. Every. Last. One. It made the game pretty easy after a while because his lvl was way high compared to the npcs and his atk was already uber as well.

Looking back on it, it was pretty absurd.

yeah crits in gen 1 are crazy, they're based on speed.
the formula is: base speed * 100 / 512
With high crit chance moves like slash it is divided by 64 rather than 512.

Which means that anything with a base speed of 64 or higher has 100% crit chance with moves like Slash.
Would have loved to know this shit back in the day.

I'm looking to get a new pokemon game but cant decide between these two (or four I guess)
On one hand I've seen x and Y get great reviews but on the other hand i've only played up to generation 3, no diamond no black and white, my last game was regular sapphire for gameboy.
Could I enjoy X and Y if I haven't played the previous 3DS titles? Which one is the better game?

Yeah get all 6 trophies then you're welcome to say it's easy. I believe 3v3 is the easiest to cheese and you can always run sweeper dragonite/mkanga+1 for singles but the game will still chuck hard counters out to your lead that threaten other team members so you need to pick hard counters to your biggest threats and not make a single misplay.



I got 2 on X and then ORAS came out and I've not actually done any on ORAS yet because I'm lazy. I should get my doubles and singles again and then try this one really. Lol surf spam.

I have OR and am going to get X or Y soon. You can buy a "subscription" to the Pokebank app/thing from the Nintendo Store, it's 5 bucks for a year and gives you a shit ton of room to store them. You can also move pokemon from game to game using the pokebank which is quite nice.

Not sure if you ever got into it, but Shiny Hunting is A LOT easier now. They lowered the number from 1/8k to 1/4k roughly in gen 6. Shiny Charm, which you get after completing the nationali dex, makes the chances even higher.

I honestly prefer X/Y because ORAS had NO character customization. I preferred the graphics too, and the land. I just didn't like "updated" Mauville, and the more I think about it I don't think I even really LIKED Hoenn that much.
Too much water. TOOO much water.
It's cool that you get to fly to routes, now that's the ONLY thing I liked about ORAS,
but honestly, I like pokemon games for the "culture" and I just feel like ORAS had no "original" culture.

Kanto, is nature-like, Johto is "shinto"/Japanese culture like, Hoenn - meh, Sinnoh - MEH - I guess it has a "religious/mythology" theme.

I never played Unova region but I really want to - heard it has an "American" theme, X/Y Kalos region has a FRENCH theme.
ORAS... MEH. No culture unless you like sailors and marine life.

Sup /po/!
I'm lookin' to get back into playing both the cards and the handheld. I used to have a whole binder full of rare cards I had as a kid (my dad "lost it" in storage) and play the shit outta sum pokemanz. Looking to get back into playing it, but I haven't since I was 8 years old so I've literally forgotten everything. I mean I basically know how to play after a few sessions at my buds, but I'm looking for tips on starting my own deck.

As for handheld I only have the old big-ass silver styled DS. Which game should I grab?

Any tips, recommendations, for an old trainer looking to get back into the swing of things. Come on /po/, make me a mastah!

I want to TCG but I don't want to money. I know nobody around here, and there are no official events for hundreds of miles. Been considering buying older cards, starting with the Gym Heroes/Challenge sets, which I don't have as much of. I've always wanted to make a sweet Sabrina-based deck. I like YGO but it's so complicated. I've also been toying with Magic, playing with unwilling friends.

I have been grinding in PTCGO for I-don't-know-what, just filling out the 5 stars in the trainer challenges. I could probably do more than that, but it feels like that's what I should do first. Bouffalant first turn pretty much guarantees a win, kind of broken. Set the difficulty to HARD, you will progress faster. Didn't realize that until recently.

The screenshot kind of looks like shit, but it illustrates well enough what I'm talking about.

How have we, in nearly 20 years, never gotten a home console full Pokemon RPG game?

The closest things we got to them were the adventure modes in both Pokemon Colosseum and Pokemon XD - Gale Of Darkness. But those games took place in the Orre Region, which had some contrived reason that wild pokemon could not survive there.

Now I can understand not having a console game in the era before Wi-Fi gaming, as it would be an absolute bitch, if not impossible, to trade and/or battle with friends. But what's the reasoning now?

A Pokemon RPG on Wii U could be (more like will be) amazing. Different versions can still be released, and people can catch them all, thanks to Wi-Fi.

If I were still the child I was when I first picked up Pokemon I would say that I hoped it was because they were spending a lot of time working on it to make it the best game they possibly could. THEY ARE WORKING ON IT, they just haven't announced it yet. Sadly, I'm not that child anymore. The truth is probably that they have no need to make it. They're making a shitload of money off of the handheld games and they're going to continue to make a shitload of money off of the handheld games. They cost less to produce, the market is full of children with 3DSs itching to pick up the next Pokemon game and everything has worked really well for them so far so there's no need to risk anything. They're probably holding out on the console title because THEY KNOW how badly we want it. They're going to wait until shit has started to go south and they need a way to bring themselves back up. That hasn't happened yet and probably won't happen for quite a while. But when it happens, EVERYONE will buy it. I would buy the newest Nintendo console specifically to play that game and there are probably a lot of people who feel the same way. That's why they haven't done it yet. They're too comfortable and they have no need to take the risk. Sorry for the sudden dose of realism. :(

I can't be the only person who has some pokemon solely for swag, right? I mean, my favorite team was Farfetch'd, Shiny Psyduck, Delibird, and Ducklett. I never have played competitively, and enjoy the fact that one can beat the game with whatever pokemon they want.

Why would it be? Prankster is for moves without attack power. Poison jab is power 80.

None of those are. Maybe it's just my opinion but sableye works best exploiting prankster and it's typing with high defenses and with stuff like taunt, will of wisp and quash. A calm mind sableye is scary because if I send a physical attacker in it can burn it before said attacker can hit. Just trying to use it's typing and a bunch of offensive moves seems like a good way to waste a top tier support mon. If you're not going CM the only attack worth using is usually foul play. If you actually want to beat a thing using sableye rather than crippling things I'd go will o wisp and recover plus 2 other moves and stall the fuck out. Maybe 2 of foul play, protect and taunt. Taunt makes it even better for support, protect is useful in doubles and foul play gives it bite. In doubles it's also got fake out and quash and can only be faked out specifically by mega lopunny (who can also hit it super effectively, but doesn't want to be burnt) and pre mevo scrappy mega khan. Well maybe some other shit but nothing you'll see a lot.

You have to breed Recover into Sableye I think. And I just saw Poison Jab on Bulbapedia on a list of moves affected by Prankster. I'm not really that concerned with competitive gaming since I can beat any of my real life friends at this point. Thanks for the advice though.

You have three options. 1. Get X or Y and use the Friend Safari. 2. Check your Mirage Islands in ORAS daily, two islands have wild Ditto. 3. Change your PSS greeting to request a 5-6IV Ditto and do lots of Wonder Trades and random matchups. Look up on Bulbapedia or Serebii how to get Ditto in Friend Safari and to check which Mirage Islands are the ones with Ditto on them. Both require the PokeRadar and a lot of patience to actually get ANY 5-6IV Pokemon.
