  1. Other DLC2 Crown Tundra Speculation Thread [SPOILERS]

    Now i'm not the most knowledgable ou player, but crown tundra drops one more mon that can keep cinderace in check...tank chomp. Normally cinderace relies on u turn to chip checks and make progress but with chomp on the field, it entirely loses this option because 252 Atk Libero Cinderace...
  2. Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow In-Game Tiers - Reboot

    I won't say its invalid at all to compare pokemons depending on the context. As i stated in the post, i'm using blastoise as the standard A tier pokemon to draw lines to determie if blastoise and zard should be in the same tier, mostly basing on their performance. Hopefully, i'm not...
  3. Pokemon that disappointed you in-game despite looking good initially?

    (Platinum) Now i didn't expect hippo to be amazing or anything but being a long time ou member and infamous for its physical bulk that exceeds even skarmory, you'd think it'll do sth against cynthia's garchomp right? The foe's Garchomp used Earthquake! (Hippowdon lost 52% of its health!)...
  4. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Professor oak's pokedex evaluations at the very end of the early gen games. Look, its a cool idea to show how competent of a collector the player has become but after tanking and dishing out blizzards, outrages and earthquakes, i'm very tired of the last line of my casual runs being ""Good. I...
  5. GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    Having finished a meganium run recently,i'd like to chime on the discussion as a casual runner. (1) meganium is extremely weak. You are basically stuck with razor leaf and return until red, making its damage input the weakest among the current s to c rank, with the sole exception of bellosoom...
  6. Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow In-Game Tiers - Reboot

    You are correct, i forgot surf is only after koga. But this only proves my point imo, considering that both dig and earthquake are contested tms, i'd still give the edge to blastoise here. It has to be my habit of fighting everyone that made me not realize you can skip everyone before blaine...
  7. Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow In-Game Tiers - Reboot

    I'd like to start a discussion again on Charmander to B. I'm going to compare it to squirtle, the posterboy of A rank now that it has been rejected to be S. (1) Gym matchups: Other than sabrina, charmander performs worse in every major matchup compared to squirtle. Brock: I didn't use a potion...
  8. Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow In-Game Tiers - Reboot

    Very late because i didn't check the thread but from yr logs,i still can't see how clef is comparable to zam at end game, let alone being considered good there. For starters, clef uses 4 tms here and psychic+tbolt is some of the most contested tms in the game. Lorelei:As i mentioned i used...
  9. Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow In-Game Tiers - Reboot

    Just ran a charizard / victreebell / kingler / alakazam / clefable / nidoqueen team. Keep in mind that its six mons so all mons are lvl 47 before e4. Wom't comment much on kingler because i rare candied it to lvl 30 but i can't see it higher than c. Crabhammer is very late, its best normal stab...
  10. Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow In-Game Tiers - Reboot

    Bruh Nidoking learns surf :3. Though i also had no idea nido lacks dig so perhaps bubblebeam has more merit than i give credit for, to hit random things like gastly if you lack thunderbolt as well. I also disagree blizzard is pointless on water types when it lets water types obliterate an...
  11. Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow In-Game Tiers - Reboot

    I believe the nidos and clef don't mind passing bubblebeam at all for four reasons (1) It provides zero value in gym matchups (2) Water gun hits rocks hard enough (3) Ice beam and psychic makes this tm obsolete for the nidos / clef so its only useful before celadon (4) Its very hard for the...
  12. Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow In-Game Tiers - Reboot

    Drums encouraged me so here i am giving my thoughts on certain mons. Do keep in mind that this run is two months ago, i used six mons and never rly bothered invidiually testing anything so take it as a grain of salt. I will try my best to not give any repetitive opinions. My team is as follows...
  13. Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow In-Game Tiers - Reboot

    An off-topic post about the nature of in game tiers, skip if you want The in game tier lists were never meant to be truly efficient in every single way, otherwise squirtle will be xx tier due to his soloing potential. Instead from what i can see, the in game tier list assumes a set method of...
  14. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    The topic has been beaten to death already, but the first thing that comes to mind regarding with the dex placement is that gf wanted to emphasize them being duos rather than trios. Lore wise, resh and zek are obviously counterparts to one another. Battle-wise, they also have basically the same...
  15. Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver In-Game Tier List (MkII)

    I guess where the post game ends is highly subjective so i'm not going to comment on this matter a lot but if red / blue is considered post game, then everything has to be ranked. I don't see why this tier list has to be an exception when every tier list does this including the old gsc tier...
