    To be fair though, Steel resisting Ghost didn't make a whole lot of sense. Last I checked ghosts went through things regardless of their hardness or shininess.
    Poison attacks normally involve corrosive liquids, which react to metals strongly in real life. Meanwhile in the pokemon world it's the opposite.

    Actually, a variation of Freeze-Dry for Poison pokemon being super-effective against steel-types would be really neat

    I hope that for Pokemon Z they have a PWT type thing where you can battle the old champs like you did in BW2, and Lance has a Goodra

    Also, by that logic Ghost pokemon should be immune to ALL physical attacks. Imagine the horror.

    I wasn't suggesting that pokemon have set a precedent for making sense, I was just pointing out the logic in Ghost being unresisted by steel.

    So I just tried to breed whirlwind onto a fletchling so that I could breed that and brave bird onto a skarmory.

    I didn't realized that fletchling couldn't learn whirlwind even through egg moves until after I tried.

    I am in need of PP Ups. So, I've decided to collect Smeargle from other people on the GTS, until I have 100 of them, each one with the last two digits in their ID unique from the others. That way, I can guarantee at least a PP Up at Lotto-ID Center every day.

    It's ridiculous, but it's also getting me tons of PM.

    Also, do eggs kind of "build up" on the day care man over time, or do I have to get each one before before I can get another one?

    So I am new to Pokemon and apparently shinies are easier to breed (but still hard) if one of the pokemon is from another country or something?

    So I made a doodle of Vivillon because why not?


    In retrospect, I think it looks a bit too much like it's expected to be taken seriously, but I've spent enough time on it already.

    You can buy Luck Incense at a dock in Courmarine City that does the exact same thing.

    So basically Perfect HP and Sp.Atk IVs (Preferably go for perfect everything if you can), Choice Specs/Scarf and 252 HP/252 Sp.Atk/6 X EV spread, and spam the hell out of Water Spout.

    Run a Tank/Stall with Rain Dance, Baton pass and Calm Mind, Spam Calm Mind and Run a Rain Dance, then Batonpass to Wailord after you set up. Spam Water Spout until either you wipe the enemy team, or Wailord KO's.
    Carry a type coverage Pokémon that can take out water counters(which will almost always be an electric type), like Gliscor with a Toxic Orb and Poison Heal
    I actually already built a Trick Room team around him.
