  1. Hi guys, I own myself a Retrode 2 but unfortunately, the GBX plugin was not available anymore. Since more than a week ago, they are back in stock and I have ordered and received one unit. Result is great ! I tested on Win 7, everything is plug and play. The cartridge content appears as an ordinary mass drive. I can just copy the rom and sav to my computer. I tried to edit the save with Pikasav. I worked. I just had to select "forced sav". Hope this might be interesting for some of you. https://www.dragonbox.de/en/71-retrode-2-retrode-4260416650091.html https://www.dragonbox.de/en/135-retrode2-gbx-plugin-retrode.html I'll then sell my Mega Memory Card and my Game Boy usb 64m smart card.:-)

    Snorlax Moveset

    Ha yes I know pickup but did not know it allows you to find that TM ! However I saw it's also available against Battle Points. Yesterday I got old amber and soft resetted till I have a Jolly Aerodactyl. I'll also train it. I've also spend some time to get Power Item to increase Sp Att. So I can easily start EV train my Gastly.

    Snorlax Moveset

    Indeed, a Choice item might be considered. But look, I'm facing one Pokemon and triggers a move. The guy then directly changes to e.g a Psy. Then I'm stucked with first move and cannot use the U-turn against him. So still need to think. Another I'll think about is Omastar. Just got some Helix fossils. :-) You mean when you reach level 100 you get some TM ? Indeed, I'm from Europe. Belgium to be exact.

    Snorlax Moveset

    I did not know this ability. So indeed it's dangerous. Also for him if he faces one having a capacity like Fissure, ... Indeed Energy Ball seems so great because of power, accuracy, STAB and the fact it's a special attack. So I think I've my moveset defined for Exeggutor. Sleeping Powder Leech Seed Psyko Energy Ball / Leafstorm Thanks for those advises. ;-)

    Snorlax Moveset

    Hi, Thanks a lot for the time you took to answer. First, I want to come back on : Dynamicpunch is only 50% accurate. How do you make it 100% ? For sure one of my friend will use Scizor and at least another one will use Steelix. That' sur why for my Snorlax I wanted Fire Punch. Also to address Heracross which might be sent against my Snorlax. For my Primeape, I planned to give him : Expert Belt U-turn (to escape from Psy's and still inflicting damages) Ice Punch (for birds) Close combat : power, accuracy, STAB Earthquake (if not alteady used) / tunnel For my Exeggutor, I was thinking of : Leech Seed Psyko : accuracy + STAB + power Giga Drain : STAB + heal Explosion : suicide move I really want to leep leech seed. I was thinking of replacing Explosion by Toxik but it means 2 turns to set the strategy and knowing Exeggutor low speed, it might not survive 3 hits. For the Dugtrio I'll read more about what you proposed. I did not know this strategy. Other option is maybe to replace Explosion by Sleep Powder and start with that before Leech Seed. But sleeping powder is only 70% accurate. So it's still a risky plan.

    Snorlax Moveset

    About Articuno, indeed if I use it, it'd be for late game only. Some of my friends have pretty good level, other mediocre. Myself, I'm learning about competitive play. So I read a lot. The thing is that I'd like to try to win with Pokemon I like the most. Hence Ditto. The good thing is that mine has the item which doubles its speed. But my main plan (in that case it's more in 6vs6 battles) would be to use it just after a strong battle where my Pokemon just fainted and the opponent is still there with low HP and preferably a status change. This would be the use case if I use it. I did not know the mechanics of this move (Payback). I'll read about it. FYI, I stopped after Gen II and just restarted with Hearthgold 'cause I liked the original game.

    Snorlax Moveset

    Many thanks for this detailed answer. As said, I plan to use this Snorlax as a Sp. absorber. Sleep Talk, I hesitated but I don't like the fact it'll miss 1/3 of the time or 2/3 against ghosts. Recycle would be used only in case of necessity. I hope to not have to rest more than 1 time. But what I like with Recycle, Rest and Chesto is that my opponents might use a lot of PP of their powerful attacks. Imagine then if Snorlax could have the "Pressure" ability. :-) Also, it'd be too nice for a Gengar with Dream Eater to face a sleeping Snorlax. Indeed I'm vulnerable against something like Rhydon / Golem / ... A strong physical and accurate water attack would be really nice. Too bad Surf is a special attack. One of my friend uses Gengar for sure. And Earthquake will not touch it since it levitates. Against Fighting types, I'll be hard also. So after all this thinking I understand better your point of getting rid of Recycle to increase coverage with another strong physical attack move. I'll check the alternatives to Earthquake and then decide if I make it more versatile or if I keep it as a PP Sp. Attacks absorber because for sure he won't win the game alone. So maybe better to keep it for its purpose and build a team around him to cover each other. About facing a Gengar, the risk would be my friends giving him the strong Fighting Special Attack (don't remember the name). But it shall not OHKO me I think giving Snorlax huge HP and Sp Def and the fact that this attack will not be stabbed. I've not said it but we'll be mostly playing singles standard (3 vs 3) "flat" battles. The other I'll train for sure those battles are : - Exeggutor - Gengar - Ditto - Primeape - Aerodactyl - Dugtrio The ones I might train after : - Moltres - Articuno (mind reader + sheer cold) - Dodrio : just because my Duduo is (except Gyarados) the only Shiny I caught - Electrode I'll just take Pokemon I like. I think with this list I can make some combinations of 3 Pokemons teams. Thanks again !
  8. Hi, I just have caught Snorlax. It has Sassy nature which decreases speed and increases Sp. Def. I want to use it to play against my friends. I'm thinking of this moveset : - Rest - Body slam - Crunch or Fire Punch - Recycle Item would be Chesto Berry. EV HP : 140 EV Sp Def : 252 EV Att : 116 Rest + Chesto + Recycle = no comment needed Body Slam : high accuracy, STAB, 30% chance paralysis Between Fire Punch and Crunch, it's hard to decide. As I want to make it a Sp Sponge, Crunch would be ideal for Sp sweepers like Gengar or Alakazam. But this Snorlax would be weak against Steel. On the other hand, Fire Punch could also be good against Gengar. Snorlax has high physical attack and Gengar low physical defense. Alakazam can still be hit with Body Slam. So my preference would be to use Fire Punch over Crunch. Does this set make sense ?
  9. Hi, I restarted playing HeartGold. Bad habit from Gen 1 and 2, I named myself in the game GOLD with caps and my rival SILVER with caps. I know it's possible to rename the hero's name using PokeGen as well as DO name of all the beasts I caught. I would like to keep those names but with only the first letter as cap. My first question is : Is it also possible to rename rival caracter ? Second question : If I change OT Name of all the Pokemons I got, would their curent PID still be valid ? E.g. nature has impact on PID. I guess OT Name doesn't since PokeGen let you edit this field but I wanted to be sure.
  10. Hi, Yellow was released after R/B. I'll try to find some time next week to do the test on my Yellow and Red games.
  11. Hi, Try to export save before editing it in PokeGen. Then use the import feature. It shall do the trick. Make sure save type is set on "auto".
  12. I don't know if I'll invest myself in newer gen's. For now I'm playing Heartgold and I'm finishing to make my team level 50 to beat E4 and reach Kanto. In the meantime I'm already preparing my team I'll use to battle my friends. I'm relunctant to start Moon / Sun because it would mean invest on a 3DS. I'll see by the time if 3DS prices are decreasing. Also I'd go for a 2DS but the fact we can't close it stops me from buying it. Q? : is the 3DS zone free ? If so, I might buy one when I go to Australia in few months. I think I'll rather play Leafgreen.
  13. I'll do the test for red / blue - yellow. I did not know that in Yellow they anticipated GSC games. Thanks for the info. I saw something similar about Mew's fix IV to prevent its Shinyness when transferred to GSC but I was sceptical.
  14. I had the exact same feeling. However, my favorite gen is the first. Probably just because it's the first I played (blue cartridge). After 2nd Gen, I stopped playing Pokémon. And restarted few weeks ago with some friends on Heartgold / Soulsilver.
  15. In the meantime, I found a Timid Gastly with IV AttS 27, IV Speed 30 and all others 20+. It's cool to have an Abra with Sync. :-)
