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.

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.

>>219653 here

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 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.

He said he did fight in the war. People keep their ranks as titles though I don't see why they'd keep that one, it's the lowest commissioned officer rank in a lot of forces and thus implies he never got promoted. I do wonder about the pokemon in wars though in XY they made it clear pokemon fight and die at war too.

In the series he's basically the dream crusher for kids but I don't get why Ash didn't go to Digletts cave or something for the battle. Raichu isn't that strong either, plenty of stuff without type advantage can flatten it so I guess he only faced kids most of the time not real enemy. Consistent with his rank as war, he's in a different level the big boys but all he beats are kids, all he outranks are NCOs (though that's not to say an experienced Sergeant Major isn't a respectable badass but he'd probably still end up deferring to such a man a lot). I doubt it's deliberate though, they just wanted a fierce Guile esque badass whose status wasn't excessive for the 3rd gym leader.

It could be possible that the military resigned his commission after the war, and/or that he was a conscript. Less like, though very possible because every military is different and the PokeWorld is strange, he was a lieutenant colonel or lieutenant general, and as short, he's just Lieutenant. Kinda like how sergeants are called sergeants and privates are privates, despite having multiple ranks of each with their unique names and insignias.

OR! Lieutenant isn't his military rank at all. Maybe he was in the military and in the war, but he's Lieutenant as some sort of PokeLeague office, like Treasurer. Maybe it's a fraternity rank. He could be a mason!

The only thing that springs to mind with regards to what you should know, is that we don't really do team playthrough threads. That's a no-no since you can beat any game with almost anything.

I keep trying to come up with a good team to take advantage of Persian's access to Technician, Nasty Plot, Water Pulse and Swift besides his great speed, but he's just way too frail. Does /po/ have any ideas? for OU/standard I mean

Timid Persian w/ Technician @Life Orb
max Spe and SpA

~Nasty Plot
~Water Pulse

(alternatively, Choice Specs and Switcheroo instead of Nasty Plot, but that's not as powerful I think)

Persian can learn hypnosis as an egg move, that might be able to buy you some time for it to set up. Plus since it's pretty fast you have a good chance of getting your move in first, which means you could even go as far as to teach it Taunt to shut down anything that tries to set up.

Those are my suggestions anyways, I don't know a huge deal about Persian.
If he's too frail I'd just sash it, but that's just me.

Honestly, Persian's main problem is its very lackluster attack. Its 65 atk/60 spatk base. It can't even do much damage with stab fakeouts. I think it can work in lower tiers, but it's just outclassed by almost everything in OU.

I just prefer lower tiers anyway, so it wouldn't bother me running it in LU/RU. As for the last move slot, u-turn/knock off/icy wind/substitute are probably your best bets.

Getting in a sub could mean knocking out something with priority/faster/let you set up/etc. U-turn would allow you to pivot. Knock off is just dumb right now due to sheer power (130 if an item is removed). Icy wind is coverage and the only thing that can actually benefit from technician that it might want to use. Hypnosis isn't a bad choice either, as Danky mentioned, but that accuracy. I'd zoom lens if I was ever going to run hypnosis.

Persian has 70/65 attacks but it's got lower defenses and it's typing means that it won't ever be able to switch in on resisted attacks. Unless it comes in on a monotype ghost attacker whatever it comes in on will be able to seriously hurt it or KO it. So it needs a safe switch into a mediocre attacker to be able to setup.

Swift isn't a bad idea. I suspect as a technician user it could also run hidden power. In gen 6 it's now power 60 and benefits from technician.

Honestly I don't think persian has much potential, it's probably actually better on wifi where swift is suddenly a lot more useful. STAB technician swift off a nasty plot special attack is threatening but all it takes is a mach punch user to come in on you and you're fucked. Plus ghost types are a problem. Water pulse gives good neutral coverage but you need an answer for ferrothorn, ghost trees, and the like in OU. In lower tiers you have more options. I'd use persian in whatever tiers are the lowest it's allowed because it's one of those mons where others do it's job better. PorygonZ is probably straight up better for example but in the lower tiers you might make it work unexpectedly well.

Hey guys. I've been playin' Black version a lot recently and I've been having a recurring problem: I keep getting my ass kicked in the battle subway. I need a new team and some advice/pointers. I was hoping some Pokemon masters could help a brotha out over here. I was thinking of using Gengar as a starter because of his speed and sp attack. Gengar could also use toxic and poison the enemy. He is effective against many Pokemon and ground/normal moves can't hurt him. For my other two Pokemon, I am not sure what I should use. I have a Ferrothorn that I was really hoping to incorporate into my team. I love his defense and I spent a lot of time EV training this guy. If Ferrothorn really isn't a good choice I'd be open to leave him behind(reluctantly of course). My current team is: Staraptor, Ferrothorn, and Volcarona. I can describe the moves that I have taught them and what moves would be ideal for them to know for the battle subway. I would also like to discuss what hold items would be effective for my Pokemon to use. I want to go over every factor that it will take for me to be a battle subway master.

tl;dr > I need help with making a bad ass battle subway team

The PVE mentality is different from pvp. In subway you need a pvp mentality. You build to win each game one at a time instead of being able to go through loads of tough trainers.

I would reccomend a good core with decent coverage, which you have. Properly EV train stuff.

Ferrothorn is beastly but he's not threatening, he's way better in 6v6 than 3v3 but he will wall most enemy in subway. Give him max hp, good defenses and leftover. Gyro ball (unless you end up with good speed) power whip, leech seed and protect is probably his best 1v1 set or just send him out with twave and then switch him back out for every enemy. As he's defensive he needs partners who have defensive rather than offensive synergy, he hates fighting and fire moves but only those so while you have fighting covered with both his partners, you have nothing to resist the inevitable fire moves incoming. He could run toxic instead of one of the attacks also, as he's a monster at stalling.

If you wanted to run a heavy defensive team a poison heal gligar evolves into a gliscor who with toxic orb becomes a monster physical wall whose main weaknesses are ice and water, ferro handles water but you'll still have a hole defensively. Gliscor could either run ice fang/EQ/roost and then protect/toxic or toxic/sub/protect/EQ for a super stall set which runs toxic, then protect then sub until the enemy drops, eq will slaughter most things that would otherwise setup. Skarmory laughs at you though but see below for a solution. A toxic orb poison heal gliscor will heal 1/8 of it's hp a turn, every second turn it will protect and then it will sub having healed the sub off.

Maybe a bulky heatran is an option here? It absorbs fire, gliscor and ferro plug it's defensive holes while their quad weaknesses either hit for 1/4 damage (ice) or power it up and don't hurt it (fire). It hates EQ which gliscor laughs off, and fighting which again doesn't really hurt gliscor while water is a joke to ferrothorn.

Slowbro is also a good partner for this team as he resists ice, fire and psychic and water. Regenerator means you can switch him in and out a lot. If you can't get that it's not the end of the world. You can run a calm mind set with psyshock and surf and just buff and sweep. Or run icebeam instead of CM and tank. Slack off is necessary in any spec. You could also run yawn for shits and giggles. Sleeping can last a single turn in gen 5 though so it's risky business.

The following are all offensive heavyweights but have fuck all defense.

bro also resists fighting, infact ferro/bro is pretty fucking solid as electric, dark, ghost and grass (his weaknesses except bug) are all resists for ferro. If you slip in an attacker with bug resist (staraptor, pretty much every monster in the previous post) you could run an attacker who gives you a solid defensive core and some punch. You could also go full defensive and run someone like skarmory with a hazard/ww/roost and brave bird and then just wall the shit out of everything but I don't think you can have triple leftovers. Leftovers for ferrothorn and the bro could take a berry of some sort or even an offensive item for a CM spec.

Hope that gives you some ideas. I'm not a subway master but hopefully this helps a bit.

Arcanine or Delphox (love at first site, but arcanine's an old flame)
zoroark or luxray if I'm high

I don't care that there's better options for all of them. Got about halfway into breeding them before I got tired of breeding. I use the Delphox/Swampert/ChlorophyllVenusaur combo though, win a little less than I lose but it's fun enough.

you know, I liked it back when even the higher tiers relied on Rain Dance/Sunny Day/whatever instead of Drought-like abilities.

That shit should've stayed in the ubbers...

You're a generation late now anyway, perma weather is now gone.

Weather effects last 5 turns or 8 if your monster holds the relevent rock as it's item. Drought and stuff are only as useful as rain dance. Of course they're free so can be activated by switching in still. But if you want it to last you have to switch a lot and preserve your monster and/or give up an item slot.

yeah they've been greatly nerfed

the weather is limited to 5 turns after switching in, unless you give up your item on your weather starter (a huge deal and very limiting for tyranitar/hippowdon/abomasnow especially), which gives you 8, but thats at most 7 turns for other mons who would take advantage of the weather, maybe less if your weathr starter wants to set up something else like toxic or stealth rock

and then the biggest problem, which only becomes apparent in practice, is that its actuallly tricky to keep the weather up since if you switch back in while the weathr is still going, you dont "refresh" the weather, it still ends at the same time, which could be just 1 turn after you re-enter if it turns out that way, and your t-tar could be left sandless and therefore his sp def would be lowered

its a nice mechanic and works pretty well, even uber powerful switft swimmers are now manageable, but doable

The only downside is that this cannot happen. (Using his opponents rain nonetheless)

So i've beaten pokemon emerald and done my fair share of battles at the battle frontier and i discovered i could put ANY TM on ANY pokemon, so /po/, what kind of TMs can you think of that would be completely devastating on certain pokemon?

Currently have an EV'd out skarmory with recover lol

If you want, in more of a metaphysical sense, what pokemons could be unstoppable given the right moveset in gen 3 general

I'm assuming you mean hackedmon.

Sableye is the best bet. Give it wonderguard and a full troll set. Substitute/toxic/wisp/move with high pp that can do legit damage to most anything. Alternatively, drop toxic for a boosting move and give the last slot to something with high PP that can't be ignored by any Pokemon. It's still killable, but it has to be a Pokemon that has faster toxics and gets it out before the sub.
