As far as I know you only get one when you beat master rank. I know if one pikemon gets all of them it gets some sort of battle effect kinda like the shiny effect.

I just encountered something weird in Leaf Green. Lances Seadra(water/dragon), Gyarados,(water/flying), and his Aerodactyl(rock/flying) aren't super affected by my Mr.Mime's grass type move Magical Leaf. Can anyone clarify this to me?

I can't believe that. Surely you spend at least 15 minutes on menus even if you drop some drugs and start at +100 in 2 stats. Well I guess it depends on the spread. My Lapras with like 5 invested stats took 5 minutes. But damn man those menus and loading times account for at least half my time doing that.

Depends on the mon and spread I guess.

Most of that horde stuff looks RNG dependent as fuck. If there's a 1% chance you'll get a horde with the wrong IV or a 5% chance it'll rain you'll get rained on 95% of the time and when it's dry 99 out of 100 battles will have the wrong IV. The games are pretty quick. I've done a lot of them while breeding shit, so I ride around tapping the bag between matches and getting steps in.

Ironically people lost interest in the second gen TPP for a lot of the same reasons people lost interest in the second gen pokemon back in the day.

I remember this really old guy at the D&D and comics games store who had a killer deck.
It was basically modular so he could switch out different colors and always have an advantage. Almost every card he had disabled your poke in some way, and he spammed all kinds of cheap shit. Also he didn't call them pokemon, he called them lil' animals lol.

I didn't play long enough to really be good or know which cards sucked and which didn't though. All I know is that my brothers poison deck was BS.

If you could only have ONE Pokemon, what would it be? Assume everybody gets one Pokemon. Not everybody battles with them, like some use Pokemon for work or play or whatever, but there is certainly a subculture of Pokemon trainers who battle with their Pokemon. Pokemon that evolve through levels gained in battle can evolve via happiness or real-life experience if battling is not your thing. Ones that require stones obviously still would, and you can prevent an evolution with or without an everstone also.

I guess it's important to note that in this scenario it is possible to have more than one Pokemon, but let's just say that you'd need a special battling permit, similar to how you need to pass a test for your drivers license, depending on how many Pokemon and at what levels they are. Just go with your number 1 Pokemon for this thread though.

Name the Pokemon, and post a picture of it if it's not too much trouble. No restrictions on generation or region, starters are allowed.

I choose Vaporeon, but I'd try my damnedest to obtain a Squirtle just because he's also been my Pokebro forever. The reason I went Vaporeon is he'd be a better snuggle buddy and potentially be more playful.

It's a shame that heatran is one of the few things that will beat magenzone as that rework while leaving you stronger overall does leave you walled by the lava dome. I mean metang can beat it with EQ but if it's a scarftran or invested in speed it will have to eat a lava plume first. A defensive tran probably won't KO and won't go first but an offensive one will wreck it. Greninja is your sole check for offensive heatran though it will one shot it with hydro pump and has a 50% chance to KO it with surf assuming perfect defensive IVs, note it doesn't outspeed so tran gets 2 shots but it needs 3 to KO you with no prior damage, and that's before life orb damage at which point you might KO both mons at once. Overheat will really hurt, a specced tran or a crit will KO you and it's got okay odds to 2 hit you thanks to life orb chipping you away.

This is what people mean about hydropump. It depends what you need greninja to beat but hydro pump has a 85% chance to hit and therefore one shot offensive tran. SUrf has a 50% chance to KO but will always do a lot of damage so I guess you can send chansey out to finish the job.

Note also that getting defog is hard. Mandibuzz can be bred for it visa swanna but as I said it doesn't get rocks.

I say all this because heatran also walls your mega without EQ. It's not a decision you can make easily but it's worth bearing in mind that a heatran with good IVs is a LOT rarer on Battle spot than smogon so you'll face a lot less of them. In OU it's a dominant force due to it's defensive typing and stats but it tends to weaker and rarer in the... wild.

If they have decent IVs I'd be interested. Can never be fucked to breed a sableye but it only needs hp, def, sdef and speed really perfected, and I would conceivably use it, it's always just too low on my to do list. I won't be on tonight but maybe tomorrow, want anything in return? I have some espeed multiscale dratinis whose IVs won't blow, bullet seed HA shroomish (quick feet but it's technician on evolve, you have to get spore before you evolve then use the reminder to get mach punch though), or mold breaker excadrill if you want one of them.

>>225574
It's a nice set. It's going to struggle with garchomp who's everywhere though, so it's not super anti meta but it can tank hits from hydreigon even with choice specs. I guess combining that bulk with good spread moves and knock off is nice too. That set also has room for a bit of switching up if you're okay with losing a bit of coverage. You could run taunt, roar/whrilwind or protect. For singles it's main issue is it could be setup bait to any bulky attacker though as drapion isn't super threatening really. It can probably nail most HO teams if you have chewed up the setup sweepers a bit though.

If you were a gym leader, how would run your gym? How hard would it be to win your badge? Would you teach lessons or would you just want them to have stronger pokemon than you? And what would your team look like?

The manga, the special thing they did last year that relived gen I in like 5 episodes, and Cheren in Gen V2 pretty much confirm that that's exactly what being a gym leader entails.

Also hinted at, the reason they only fight you with like 2-4 at a time is for the same reason there's an arbitrary limit of six mons at a time; trainers supposedly can only adequately attend to the needs of a few pokemon at a time, and because of the previous that means gym leaders have like 20 they watch after, train up, take care of, learn to trust and read and predict, etc.
