So now that they've been around for a while, I thought I should ask how /po/ feels about mega evolution, in general. Some questions: what's your favorite/least favorite mega evolution? how has the performance of mega evolutions stacked up to the hype, or your initial reaction? Do you feel like most competitive battling should just ban them altogether and stick with conventional team building, or do you think it is the way of the future and every team should be structured to compliment them? Were they implemented just to recapture nostalgia for older players? Or to inspire reverence in younguns, much like the legendary pokemon of eld?
I personally think they are an interesting concept that has good and bad points. My main grievance with it is that only one pokemon from previous generations had a new standard evolution in X/Y, Eevee. I like when pokemon from older generations receive new evolutions, but I don't know how I'd feel if they only received Mega Evolutions from now on. Probably a little annoyed.

I'm cool with them.

I think it adds a little depth to the gameplay. Running Chlorophyll Venusaur on a sun team is a lot of fun but instantly slapping the Mega button won't get you far and you might even get punished for dropping the Speed boost.
Only other Mega I've used so far has been Ampharos. Also a lot of fun and I like that I have to be really careful about when to slap on the Dragon typing.

Mvenusaur is the tits. Losing chlorophyl is niche, also bear in mind speed isn't changed until the next turn so you can have a speed boosted mega for a single turn still.

Mkanga is OP as fuck. The charizards are pretty scary though I've only faced them. Bulbasaur was my first mon in gen 1. I am glad I can use venusaur and it's awesome. It just grinds through most teams once you've removed the checks and counters. Lucario is almost as broken as kanga. I've not used many others but I've faced most of them most aren't as useful as the most popular ones but offer something for certain niches (ie mega ttar is a great dragon dancer, same with gyarados who can't set weather but has mold breaker earth quakes and so threatens rotom-w, scizor makes a better bulky setup sweeper than it's normal but that's it etc). Manectric is probably the least intimidating one I've met. I hear banette sucks, but I cannot verify it. I get the feeling it's a good prankster though a lot of people sell it on destiny bond. Using Dbond on your mega seems really fucking stupid. You get one slot and it should be the one drawing throwaway suicide attackers, it shouldn't be one. However I suspect it's good at support. Absol also occupies the niche of a brutal sucker puncher and the only foul play resistant (as opposed to straight up weak to it) magic bouncer.

Also just a thought but for a sun team you'd probably run Charizard Y anyway as it has drought and solar beam and 159 special attack. It's even better in doubles too apparently. Your venusaur could just be a sweeper with growth/beam/eq/sludge bomb or something like (that will get walled by skarmory but then char Y will not) the mega evolve turns it into a tank but previously it would just outspeed and hit shit really hard, aiming for one hit KOs after a growth surely? Gaining bulk gives you a backup plan for when the sun goes away but the mega doesn't help it do it's main job as much as having a charizard Y blowing up anything which can think about walling it. Throw in something that can handle talonflame and you're set.

This sounds really fun, but I've tried playing single player games alongside my friends before and it never really goes smoothly. Last time I tried was when I was in highschool when no one had a job and only rarely could we all get together and play. We did eventually beat the game though.

Doesn't R/B take like 20hours to beat without these rules?

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd

  • U-turn
Now how do I explain this particularly odd and at a first glance TERRIBLE tornadus? Truth is I can't, but I can justify it by saying it ohkoes blissey, quag, and gastrodon. 50-70%s latios AND ferrothorn, has amazing speed and is neigh unkillable with regenerator and the right prediction. Also knock off OP as fuck.

Yeah but if you're using defog then you probably don't want to use hazards.

Rocks are fucking awesome. My usual lead is overcoat forretress right now because I couldn't find anything better to cover the spinner role (well I could have used starmie but a) I've got a water already and b) I'd then need someone else bringing rocks)

Not necessarily. You can run both. Once you defog, put your own hazards out. Rocks is only one turn for a lot of free damage. If you've removed their hazard user then you're not losing anything.

Bringing this back up because I've tried my team and an approximation of it on pokeshowdown too. I have an idea what is working but need help with what isn't (or maybe suggestions to cover for them by tweaking the rest).

I'm running

Talonflame @Choice band
Gale Wings (duh)
Full atk and spd and adamant nature
Brave Bird / Flare Blitz / Will of Wisp/ U Turn

Good for either late game cleaning or removing specific threats to venusaur depending how things go. It works fucking well for me and always nets at least 1 KO though it's won me a couple of games by turning being 4-2 down to 5-5.

Azumarill @ Choice Band
Huge Power
Adamant with full atk and hp and rest in spd I think.

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.)

>>223837
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.

My first real team (please ignore any of my earlier drunken comments):

Tyranitar - the sandstorm thing - sets up the rock type spikes, smashes what it can, all good
Swampert - torrent - is a choice move cannon. Proving so deadly I wanna turn him into something, but abysmal stats make it hard
Delphox - blaze - sets up sunny day for below or risks glass cannon blows to fire-weak or psychic-weak or god forbid a heavy grass-weak; known to be weakest link
Venusaur - chlorophyll - sleep powder/poison spam, solarbeam, useless without sun
Dragonite - multiscale - big flying tank she's so awesome
Lucario - forgot ability don't remember english - made him special with aurosphere, flash cannon etc. Don't know how comfy i am with him like this.


Team has surprizingly great coverage but absolutely no synergy. The dual weather is easy to work with despite the apparent contradictions, problems arise with a choice earthquake and only one flyer, or the lack of real power trinities within the group (making 6v6 not terrible but 3v3 bad)


I'd like a bit of advice on the theory of synergy.

I'm thinking about setting up a website for this. Would people be interested in that? It could be semi-automated with a hacked version of showdown/actual showdown and just pasting replay codes.

Seems like a good idea to me OP

Just set it up so people have to deposit the money in advance and at the end get money back according to whatever system is used. (Winner takes all?). Actual showdown would be easier. Just save the link of the replay.

Ideally there would be something that prevents ou from looking at other players battles, finding out their teams/movesets, and changing your team accordingly.

PVE Pokemon is pretty simple. You don't have to have great pokemon to beat the game. I've only done it on gameboy/GBA games that I played on an emulator because I can't even enjoy pokemon without being able to fast forward anymore so it's not too time consuming. It's a lot of fun, makes things very intense, and you're a lot more emotionally invested in your little creatures. It also allows you to use pokemon you never would otherwise which keeps things interesting. Nuzlocke runs are awesome.

Yeah those pokemon are useless, so you've never used them before, and its a new experience. And since its a childrens game its pretty boring if you dont up the difficulty level in some way. Dont forget one of the most important nuzlocke rules is to name your pokemon, i swear you might not think you will but its fucking emotional to lose a bro that youve spent hours training and has saved you before. The element of risk really adds suspense to every fight in the game, even random ass trainers who could get a lucky crit.

So I started a new game on Leaf Green to play when I'm taking a poop and I decided to use Pokemon that I've rarely used in all my years of Pokemon. Naturally I went for Mr. Mime, he has always been a creepy ass goofy nigga so I never used him.. until now. I found Mr. Mime to be quite fun over the standard USE STRONGEST MOVES TO WIN gameplay and Instead of that I'm setting up things like substitute and reflects ect, ect. and it has made battles a lot more fun.

So my question is are there any other fun Pokemon like Mr. Mime that goes outside the norm to change things up a bit? preferably Leaf Green only but I own Platinum.

Any stall/wall pokemon. Setup sweepers can be fun as you have to get them in and set up safely. I am having fun on SS using gyarados and with intimidate to switch in and tank a couple of hits while it dragon dances but there's most sophisticated stuff. Just take more monsters with status and control moves. Take a dream eater or sleep user. Someone with sub and disable or sub poison heal, protect toxic and an attack or the like. You could have a baton passer who has a baton pass then a buff or two and a defense or two. You could use a weather team too though that will work better in diamond but especially in gen 5. In gen 6 weather is much harder work but more balanced. You could run hazards and a shuffler and shuffle something that doesn't threaten your setup sweeper or baton passer out and then switch said mon in and sweep. A lot of pvp tactics work in pve but they're largely not necessary and while they're very easy to pull off with an AI opponent they are less rewarding a lot of the time as a result. But probably more than just taking 4 coverage moves with the highest power and 100% accuracy you can get on 6 fast attackers.

Platinum is a later gen and has more options as a result so some of this stuff won't work in LG.

Neutral nature too. He was the only Poke I used in Fantina's Ghost Gym. I'm so glad I taught him Substitute and Double Team. Sub protected him from all status attacks(Curse and Confuse Ray abound). I would've lost so many mon to Curse and confusion hax if I didn't have Gligar playing stall.

Through my Nuzlocke I've learned that bulky Pokemon are extremely valuable. The slow game is in your favor when you can use items.

Starly's line is also pretty interesting imo. Barry uses Staravia expertly unfortunately. I was playing a semi-blind run and had forgotten about the post-gym rival fight. We both led with Staravia, his one level higher than mine.

His strategy is basically, Double Team 6x, Endeavor when at low health, Quick Attack
It's brutal.

>I see his Staravia, begin spamming my Double Team
>he does the same
>6 turns later we start exchanging Wing Attacks
>I miss every single one for ~10 turns, land a few over ~20 turns

I used to do that when I was 12.

I always thought that female pokemon were inherently weaker.
I avoided the females at ALL costs.

It made finding the natures even harder.

I generally prefer using male Pokémon because I'm a dude and my pokes are my bros. If it makes sense for the Pokémon to be female, then I'll look the other way, but that's a pretty rare scenario for me.

Not autistic, just super-obsessive-compulsive.

I'm an equal opportunity ass kicker. I just take whoever can do the job best.

Despite that my teams end up sausagefests pretty often. In my current team Gengar and Forretress are girls, Venusaur, Landorius Talonflame and Azumarill are guys which is actually more balanced than usual. My SS team is pretty much all guys. That's RNG for you. My other mons are mostly guys as well it seems, TTar, Volcarona, Aegislash, Gliscor have all seen use while the girls count among them Ferrothorn, Kanga (duh) and that's about it. Unless I use the dragonite I have sitting around.

Just RNG for you I guess.

So, after going about my whole life without getting any shinies other than that Rayquaza and the ones the games give you (e.g. Red Gyarados), I decided in prep for pokebank to use http://www.pokemonspeedruns.com/index.php/Main_Page and "speedrun" through a few games (rather, follow the route). Did Sapphire and FireRed Round 2.

While hunting for Latias in Sapphire's postgame, I ran across a shiny zigzagoon - the first "legit" shiny in all of my time playing the games. Literally the next day I did the FRR2 and got a shiny Venomoth on like 2 island (on the way to get the girl).


Then a few weeks to a month ago I went after Zygarde to finish off my dex, and in his hole I found a copper Fermicula (the metal ant I can't remember english). That was pretty cool but for the rest of the day my *only* encounters were Fermicula hordes, the Zygarde, and for some reason for the very first time I was attacked by "pokemon in a bush" on one of the routes (where their shadows jump at you like in the caves) which was naturally a fermicula...

I think I stole their queen and now I'm terrified of them...

First shiny was a red Graveler in Silver's Victory Road before I knew what shinies were. Caught it fortunately. Evolved it into a red Golem and used it for like a month before starting a new game.

Caught a green Marrill in Emerald and didn't use it once. Recently encountered a shiny Mareep in X in a horde battle. I actually battle with that one. Pink MAmpharos is adorable af

Plenty of traded shinies have come my way as well, likely genned.
I feel like I'm forgetting one or two but maybe not.

You're from Germany or Austria. We actually had a thread about DURANT DURANT.

Don't be scared, just run a strong fire type. As they're wild 100 base speed with full investment will ensure you will be protected from their attempts to liberate their queen. Or breed your own durant army. Use the destiny knot eugenics to make your an army of super soldier ants. Despite being their natural predator don't use heatmor though, he's slow and soft and they can hit him with dig or stone edge.

Either way though, army of ants or fast fire user (special attacker is better due to their abysmal special defense) and you will be able to walk the roads of Kalos safely without fear of ant repercussions.

I kinda suck at catching, or even seeing shiny. I did get a shiny, lvl 100 gengar from a wonder trade, but traded it out not knowing the red star meant shiny!! So, right now I'm just trying to complete my pokedex and have better chances of getting a shiny.
