  1. Exactly. To survive Stealth Rock effectively, you need to be packing a Rapid Spinner such as Forretress. This wouldn't be a problem if SR wasn't so widespread, but the fact remains that an astounding number of teams carry the move. In other words, one is forced to carry at least one Pokemon of a certain role that could otherwise be replaced with a more useful one, or at least one that works better with the rest of the team. Now, as I had hoped, some good points have been brought up. Certain 'mons such as Salamence and Gyarados would admittedly be more of a threat without Stealth Rock kee
  2. Sorry for the bump, but I've gotta say: I got this for Christmas and it's awesome. It's great. Fun. Epic in every way. Did I actually say I didn't care to own this game? I was so young and foolish.
  3. Ahoy, all. Anyone remember me? I've been somewhat unfaithful about staying on top of this forum. In any case, I apologize if this topic is superfluous, in the wrong place, or inappropriate in some other way. I searched and didn't find another thread like this one. Now, to business: The move Stealth Rock, for those of you that don't know, is a Rock-Type attack that is laid down in the same way as Spikes. It damages opponents switching into the battle for a set percentage of HP. However, unlike Spikes, Stealth Rock cannot be "layered" to deal additional damage to switching Pokemon. Ins
  4. Dear me, all this time has passed and I still don't have a decent photo of myself to show for it.
  5. Excellent. Good enough to bring me out of a rather lengthy silence. Alright, I admit, it was a coincidence; I just came back to see what was new around here and found this gem. And am I the only one who sides with Paul on the sliding scale of idealism vs. cynicism?
  6. I really want to get this, but my dad says I've got enough consoles already. D:

  8. The Battle Tower has been giving me trouble for quite a while, actually (trying to get 100 wins). I was thinking of going through with a Garchomp/Tyranitar/??? team. Any thoughts? Also, Articuno with Mind Reader and Sheer Cold is positively evil (I've actually used a Wondereye with a similar setup). But can it outspeed everything in the tower?
  9. Ah, trust me, if I'm grabbing and throwing with Squirtle, I only use his D-Throw. And I'm still practicing the timing for "hydroplaning," but it's also quite useful. Ike is really fun to use in Item-heavy Free-for-alls, or if your opponent is predictable. If you can predict your opponent as Ike, you've already half-won. And good gracious, that's an interesting texture for our feathered friend.
  10. How can I choose between two of the most awesome Pokemon to ever awesome the game? Luckily, the option for "both" means I don't have to. Maybe Mewtwo, though...
  11. For one thing, my philosophy regarding Pokemon would change. I've always found it ironic that the games and anime go out of their way to specify that Pokemon are partners and friends, not pawns, when they are just that: pawns. Let's be honest here; Pokemon are pixels on a screen, and if the Pokemon is useless, it generally is ignored. You and your Pokemon could be the greatest pals in history, and it wouldn't stop your level 10 Bidoof from getting annihilated by Cynthia. However, if Pokemon were real and had the same intelligence and feelings as they supposedly do in the fictional world,
  12. I'm getting good with Pokemon Trainer. Squirtle's aerials rock.

  14. No "remember me" option and the fact that it's the forum's default theme means I have to log in every time I visit the forum. This one would be a thumbs-up if not for that.
