  1. [sprite]115[/sprite][sprite]133[/sprite][sprite]143[/sprite][shinysprite]335[/shinysprite] Lots of fun normal types.
  2. No, it is not. The RNG numbers allow us to determine the approximate probability of obtaining a high offset, and allow us to shift those odds in our favor, but a Pokemon with that offset can still be obtained via a completely random catch.
  3. Is anyone else sick of the fact that the default Pokemon names are ALWAYS IN ALL CAPS? Characters finally have lower case letters in their names (we won't be fighting the League Champion LANCE in HG/SS), but the Pokemon are still spelled in all caps. Why? Is Game Freak unwilling to admit that it was a stupid translation decision and that having two Pokedexes that don't match up perfectly is a small sacrifice for fixing this annoyance? No one likes the capitalized names. No one uses them. Capitalize the first letter like everyone else in the world and move on, Game Freak! Seriously, how many times have you heard someone brag about their awesome SCIZOR?
  4. I really wish they'd boost the utility of the other Pokeballs. I mean, what's the point of having Pokeballs with higher catch rates for bugs, surfing Pokemon, weak Pokemon, etcetera, when even with their boosts they are still nowhere near as good a bet as a Dusk Ball or Quick Ball?
  5. Mew and Mew. Yes, I cheated. So what. I'm not going to waste those useless moves on my competitive team, and I'm certainly not going to have a Bibarel on my team (that thing just looks too dang stupid). So I use Mew. Personally, I think that as long as you have the HM, and a Pokemon that can use the move, you should be able to use it, you shouldn't need to take up a battle move slot.
  6. Yeah, and I just got my USB WiFi Adapter working, so I can actually trade now. I just wish they'd make it so trade item evolving (ie, with the Metal Coat) didn't consume the item when the evolution took place.
  7. I've actually thought about this idea for quite a while. The big problem is that it would require a massive shift in the battle system, as random encounters don't really work that well in MMOs.
  8. I don't think Exploud really fits in that set, but you're right, Purple is also overused. And not red Lugia, Shadow Lugia, from Pokemon . Go look for a pic of it online.
  9. Palkia has the best body shape, stats, and unique move, but Dialga has the best type combo and color scheme.
  10. 1) Psychic 2) Dragon 3) Ice
  11. [sprite]448[/sprite] Watch the power of Aura! [sprite]483[/sprite] Best type combo in the game, and a nice color scheme. [sprite]376[/sprite][shinysprite]376[/shinysprite] Scizor and Steelix are fun too, except that I have an intense hatred for Pokemon that require trading to evolve due to not being able to trade for years.
  12. Yeah, I prefer the original Rayquaza as well, but I know a lot of people like the way the black one looks, so I mentioned it. Mew and Umbreon are the only shinies I like more than the originals. Too many of the shiny color schemes aren't coordinated properly. There are a lot of overused color trends as well. Although some of my favorite shinies are the blue Ice Pokemon, since they are just a lighter version of the originals [sprite]378[/sprite][shinysprite]378[/shinysprite][sprite]471[/sprite][shinysprite]471[/shinysprite][sprite]144[/sprite][shinysprite]144[/shinysprite]. They are the one group that didn't get changed drastically to the point that they look terrible. There is one other Pokemon with an alternate color scheme that's better than the original one: Lugia. Shadow Lugia is still one of the most awesome looking Pokemon in the game. Pity I can't trade it off .
  13. A downloaded Wonder Card uses spreads that are determined by the game's RNG, so you should always have the proper seed for the day, and thus you would never get the impossible spreads. Those are only a factor if you manually edited the Pokemon. So would changing the date in your DS change your RNG spread too?
  14. Factory is definitely the hardest. I think I'm going to give up on that one. Too much stupid luck. Arcade is the easiest. The slots are really easy to manipulate, and when you hit the team with devastating effects like paralyze, the battles are a cinch.
  15. If you save before you claim the pokemon from the deliveryman, can't you claim it, reload, claim it again, and keep going until you get stats/Nature you like for the dynamic ones? And, codemonkey, if they download the event through Pokesav, the game does the seed calculations based on the current date, which, as I showed, results in a legal Pokemon, so you can't check legality based on the date see of any of the downloaded events.
  16. Not sure we're on the same page here, so I'll give two examples, using the TRU Regigigas. Let's say a player got the event logged, and saved before talking to the delivery guy. He then shuts his game off, and waits until today to claim his Regigigas. Now, let's say a player today downloaded the event and got it working with Pokesav, and claimed his Regigigas from the guy today as well. Both are claimed from the delivery man on the same day, thus they both use the same date seed for the RNG. But one was an actual event, and the other was a downloaded event/wondercard. Thus, the date seed can't be used as a valid check, as far as I can tell.
  17. Actually, one of my biggest gripes with Shiny Pokemon is that frequently the original color scheme is better than the shiny one. I mean, the little sparkle when they come out is nice, but a lot of Pokemon don't look as good in their Shiny colors as they do normally. Of course, there are some awesome shiny Pokemon (Umbreon, Rayquaza, Mew...), but on the whole, the original colors are as good as they get.
  18. I thought that the stats of a Wonder Card Pokemon with a dynamic PID weren't determined until you claim them from the deliveryman. Therefore if you claim them at a later date, won't it still use the seed from the later date as well?
  19. I remembered Lance's hacked Pokemon, but I had mostly forgotten the rest. It's been too long since I've played the older gen games. But, anyway, I'd stick with TM moves only, for the rematches, and leave Egg Moves out of it.
  20. Since when do Gym Leaders use moves that can only be gotten on a Pokemon by breeding? I'm looking at a Clefable with Softboiled on that list. Almost all trainers in the game, including Gym Leaders, leave their Pokemon practically untouched on the moves list. If the Pokemon don't learn it via levelling up (or via a Gym Leader's signature TM), that Pokemon won't have it when you fight them. It's a big jump from that to them being master breeders, isn't it? Oh, and you're right. Until the variable level battles (things like the Orre Colleseum in ), trainers don't get EVs on Pokemon.
  21. Arceus and Darkrai are both still availible to be captured though, aren't they? I mean, Newmoon Isle still has Darkrai on it, and Arceus is still in the Hall of Origin (at least for us Americans). So what if we don't get to them first? What if they are captured by, say, Cipher? What's more powerful than Arceus, the lord of Pokemon? Shadow Arceus. I'd really like to see Shadow Pokemon show up in the handheld games. And, once Arceus is turned into a Shadow Pokemon, who knows what the villains will be able to accomplish?
  22. Is any one else getting really sick of seeing these moves on 90% of the legendaries in the game? I mean, with Kyogre, Groudon, and Rayquaza, we had legendaries who had unique abilities that were useful and matched the Pokemon's lore. Now, though, we're right back in the rut of having legendaries that only know those two moves. Ok, it's not totally fair. Regigigas has the crippling Slow Start, so that's a new unique one. Manaphy knows Hydration, which at least is unique among the legendaries. And Darkrai and Arceus both have nice unique abilities, if people could actually get those Pokemon without going to events. But, seriously, is Game Freak so stalled out for ideas that they can't come up with any new abilities for their legendary Pokemon?
  23. Easiest way to do the untouched challenge is to pick Espeon as your starter. With Bite and Confusion, Espeon has great type coverage, and a high enough special attack to get you through the early fights alone, though you may have to heal frequently. Once you get to Mt. Battle, you have easy training to get your Pokemon up higher, and you have access to awesome Pokemon like Flygon and Crobat once you can use the Pokespots.
  24. While I'm really impressed with this, there is one other thing I'd like to see about this. Could you please explain how the fertilizers affect this? I know there are some that speed up/slow down berry growth, and info on them would complete this section.
