    Comp stuff is made much easier on PO.

    Having to breed 200 fucking Pokémon for the right Hidden Power and Nature is bullshit.
    Hidden power shouldn't even be in the game, it's just bullshit.
    You can't even predict hidden power, you're fighting like a fuckin alakazam with your volcarona, you know he has to switch out so you're either gunn abug buzz or quiver dance and then BAM. Hidden Power Rock, OHKO. LOL U MAD.

    That is why it's so great!

       In all seriousness though, it's a pretty hard move to use if you don't know two shits about the IV system.

    My original team got dissolved shortly after the E4. I didn't even start transferring my SS Pokemon till after I pretty much explored the rest of the region.

    I kinda miss some of them, though my current team is probably better...

    Its tough to get a good Hidden power, plus there are common Pokemon that carry it.

    Hidden Power is needlessly obfuscated and it requires a stupid amount of time to create a legit system to reliably get the correct one. But then again I guess that's part of its "charm" considering without the whole grinding, Pokemon's post post game would be dreadfully barren.

    They are the same thing.
       If memory serves right, Effort Points were what they used in the first two generations of games.   
    It was Stat Experience.

    Oh shit, all this talk of EVs. It makes me want to consider getting back into this.

    The whole system is put in place to make it "fair" somehow that a pokemon can get a random coverage move it really really shouldn't.

    If pokemon needed the most random crap coverage moves, it should be in the movepool, it's bullshit that there's a move that can be of any type in the entire game on 99% of pokemon, you literally can't predict hidden power unless it's on one of maybe 10 specific pokemon that really need hidden power to work.

    Speaking of Hidden Power, I still can't believe that they didn't make that Glyph bird Pokemon that they added in Gen V the evolution to Unknown. It would have made Unknown infinitely better than it is now.

    Dreamworld Arceus to release today.

    I still want it despite not using it, just for the Pokedex spot.

    Can someone inform me how to get those special Dreamworld Pokemon?
    (I know how to befriend one, got a Trapinch once.)

    Edit: Never mind, I think I know.

    Makes some Pokémon with atrocious movepools slightly more usable.

    Wasn't GameFreak's fault for Arceus, it was a poll vote. vv

    Hey guys, I've been trying the Nuzlocke challenge these past few days and I'm really getting tired of playing the same games over and over again. Could anyone recommend maybe some kind of a hacked pokemon rom, where the map and pokemon location and trainers and everything is different, a new experience basically. I'd appreciate if it was a rom played by lots of other people who can say they enjoyed it, I want something with a high quality, not some cheap amateur stuff.

    Thanks in advance.
    Oh yeah and it should be for the GBA, thanks.

    Well, will fail to get it, but would you be able to get the birthday gift if you past your bday date(same month, but your bday passed already)?

    Next week will be my bday, so I am wondering.

    I would trade you one of my fully trained competitive Typhlosions (I got like, 5 of them), but like I said before, I seem to have lost my 3DS, which at the time was holding my Pokemon Black.

    Edited:

    Also, I think I'm going to continue on my little Nuzlocke, already have an update done for it, just have to put it together.
       Also, probably starting with my next installment, I think I'll just stay to video, so as to not page stretch so much.

    Can someone here be a bro (or sis) and keep my Victini safe for me? I want to start a new game as I feel like I rushed through White without really training my Poke's or having fun.
    Anyone?

    Have a brain hemorrhaging story:

    My boyfriend is possibly the worst Pokemon trainer in the existence of all bad Pokemon trainers.
    Why?
    He refuses to grind.
    He went through the entirety of Soul Silver severely underleveled, and somehow survived.
    But now he's doing the same in White and he made it to the E4, but keeps getting pummeled.
    His entire team isn't even level 40. He does not EV train, or do this as a challenge. He whines when he loses, and when I tell him that it's because he's underleveled and needs to grind a little more, he bitches at me because he hates grinding with a passion.

    He pretty much gave up on ever playing again.
    He wants me to Poketransfer his level 93 Umbreon from Pokemon Colosseum and trade it to him to plow through everything, but I refused and said he'd have to beat the game, essentially work for it, if he wants anything out of me.
    That still wasn't enough of a push to get him to try.

    Halp!

    To be fair, I never did any EV training myself. I did grind. I've never put aside a Pokémon without a party of 6 Pokémon who were level 100.

       Besides Blue, I glitched the living daylights out of it.
