    Totodile needs Blizzard if it wants to have a shot against the Dragons or reach crucial KOs against Xatu or 2HKO against Vileplume, something that, as far as I'm concerned, Alakazam does not need (not that it can learn it anyways). This is a -massive- investment, especially since Blizzard is not...

    Tested Magby (Odd Egg), Ho-Oh and Entei (obviously Ho-Oh and Magby can't be in the same game, but whatever) Ho-Oh and Entei had 9 Atk, 8 everything else as DVs. Magby had 0 DVs everywhere. I used Cyndaquil as a starter to keep levels in check, but won't discuss it since its rating is already...

    It must be noted that a player doesn't have to own only one Friend Ball in Crystal since you can produce multiple ones there in a single day, although you still have to use time manipulation more than once. Regardless, that means you can have higher chances to have your desired mon into a Friend...

    I'm not quite sure Tauros on A is very convincing - setting aside comparisons with Furret, the Slow leveling rate makes it need a lot of experience to catch up since it arrives at Lv13 post Whitney (edit: I remembered it's Lv15, but it's still underleveled), and aiming to catch it with the...

    I don't think Team Rocket is being considered a major boss fight, especially since the enemies are unnamed Regardless, the Team Rocket Houndoom is not nearly as powerful as Karen's Houndoom since it has Bite instead of Crunch and it is not going to overlevel the player

    Yeah, the Oddish line really wants Moonlight and Sleep Powder for the lategame if it wants to contribute at all. I evolved Gloom after getting Moonlight, which let Bellossom sleep the foe and heal if it needed so, and there were battles where the improved durability made a positive difference...

    1. From the moment I obtain them, but availability is important too, and joining late is probably worse 2. Only as necessary to maintain levels with the next boss. For the endgame, obviously every NPC I can 3. From Gens 1-4, needing buyable TMs is not really a negative while those given to you...

    I managed to beat Bruno without Razor Leaf, but maybe it has to do that I used Return instead of Body Slam. You are right that Razor Leaf is the most expendable move since it is barely useful after Jasmine. My endgame set was Return / Synthesis / Reflect / Light Screen. I didn't have the same...

    you know, the problem with the argumentation is that this description makes cyndaquil look comparable to chikorita. think about it: according to my results Chikorita couldn't win: Falkner, Bugsy, Silver (Azalea), Silver (Burned Tower), Morty, Clair, Koga, Karen, Lance [9 battles] assuming I...

    I personally believe a balance should be found between the two points that Millky95 suggests - obviously being able to win a battle is a good thing, but it's not as good if you used resources as if you didn't What I personally started doing (this doesn't mean everyone should do it) is to work...

    I may respond to atsync's post later, as I have a few things to say but regarding this post 1) because someone else may want rollout mid or long-term, too. using a non-replenishable TM always comes at the detriment of other mon, which can make a battle that another mon could have taken worse...

    I was asked to share this list on the thread, since gsc has a lot of hax list of hax Falkner: Mud-Slap Bugsy: String Shot, Poison Sting Rival: Curse, Lick, Hypnosis, Supersonic, Confuse Ray, Thunder Wave Whitney: Attract, Metronome (can do anything) Morty: Hypnosis, Curse Chuck: Leer...

    Might as well post this here I don't think it really matters that Chikorita is a starter. It gives Chikorita benefits (a level lead, perfect availability for a chance to contribute), but it has to take advantage of them. If you got Ditto as a starter, would that be an automatic C Tier by...

    I also did a playthrough with Chikorita, Hoppip, Oddish (Sun Stone) and Sunkern. Here are the results: (EDIT: I forgot to add again that DVs are 9 Atk, 8 everything else) Results: Chikorita should be C. Chikorita has a bunch of interesting tools...

    I did a playthrough with Totodile, Wooper, Poliwag (Trade) and Slowpoke (Trade) months ago, but I never got to post the logs. Here are the results: (EDIT: Forgot to add, DVs are 9 Atk, 8 everything else) Results: Totodile should be A. There are a couple of...

    It must be noted that MeepBard considered Kanto as well in their descriptions, so they probably also took the positive match-ups against certain Gym Leaders. Though they should probably clarify that themselves anyways. I also have used Sunflora (I can try to show logs), and I think that it's...

    To be honest I don't see how it is an issue. Other than Falkner, I barely make it to the level cap with my starters after defeating every trainer available up to that point, and I don't get to match at all post seven badges. The only one able to do so was Kenya to me (and Rocky should be able too)

    I don't think you can say that Arcanine has a good performance against Whitney while you have stated the following when Fearow is faster than Arcanine, hits much stronger thanks to STAB, and has a better leveling rate

    i don't think i have proven anything, i'd rather see both kenya and spearow drop to A, and the differences are not that consequential
