    Gen III Battle Frontier Discussion and Records

    Can I ask for advice for Pokemon Colloseum Orre Colloseum Level 100? The battles their kick my ass. I can't also RNG my mons for perfection. Sorry but I can't think of a better place for Gen III double knowledge than here.

    Just want to say so far this metagame feels very balanced and fair - I can even run experimental sets. Rillaboom is a bit overrated - Grass is after all still a garbage offensive typing being resisted by fire, steel, flying, poison, grass, bug and dragon. That's 7 types. If I would have to...

    Just want to add to this: Try it with any team mate which provides screens, be it Grimmsnarl/Regieleki/whatever you want. And laugh, because you are guaranteed easy victories. Also Life Orb Cinderace is kinda incredible powerful. I ran Zen Headbutt > U-Turn and it kinda doesn't care: Two or...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    You see I wanted to post about my Exeggutor/Cyndaquil/Pineco/Miltank run but I was always wondering about this part of the game.... how do people play the part around Gym 3 / Gym 4? Because I often have read statements about the team being so much higher level if you catch something at this...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    This is going to be a long post: 1. Can someone rationally explain why we choose a 4 Main Pokemon Team? Seems somewhat arbitrary. I have had the most success for making it casual with 3 for example. 4 spreads the EXP to thin, making battles against Trainers on Routes mandatory instead of...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    Just want to point out in that context that my Tauros run is tainted with Rare Candies. So the late game performance is maybe exaggerated. Midgame I didn't face Jasmine for example with Tauros, but instead Pryce. Poliwrath also got dunked on with Return. Can't say Tauros is excellent Mid-Game...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    Oh. Wow, really? That's... good to know. Didn't know that. Explains a lot actually about the tier lists. Anyways, is anyone surprised about the following pics? Tauros swept the complete Elite Four easily. It only needed healing during the final battle, one ether for return and that's it...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    Well you are not speaking for everybody, I quite enjoyed the "newish" perspective of Rare Candy in the discussion. Basically his argument (not from a usage standpoint but a tier-list practicality one) is that Rare Candies should be treated as TM's. Nobody would bat an eye about using TM's in a...

    Ah yes, the classic sentence at the end of each suspect test. Let me give me my prediction about that statement. Nothing about the metagame is fundamentally changed thanks to Cinderace, Spectrier and Magearna spam being around. Nothing. Thanks for reading my one-liner. The problem is those...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    1. I only used one Rare Candy on Tauros for the Ice Gym. Three are left 2. I think I need to emphasize again how good Geodude is. It won against Kingdra as a Graveler because I baited it into Hyper Beam and I used Self-Destruct on the recharge turn... Also Defense Curl + Rollout + Quick Claw...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    My current run so far. Read from left to right. - Geodude as always, makes the first four(!) badges completly trivial. It will evolve again at Level 37 btw. - Just going back to Eevee let me level up my Tauros one level on trainers I skipped with Geodude. Also, Headbutt + Return is OP - Getting...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    You know sometimes when you want to try something Pokemon but are not inspired? Well I want to thank this guy for inspiring me! I never, ever used Rare Candies in a "Tier List Run" before. I am interested if Tauros, who can indeed struggle due to being the Slow EXP Group, can become amazing - of...

    Unpopular opinions

    Usually this should be asked some mod, but since I am not quite certain whom to ask: Is it allowed in this thread to discuss/critisize/disagree on the unpopular opinion? If so, I'll do it for the in my opinion undeserved Jotho bashing. Anyways, my rather small unpopular opinion: Black/White 2...

    I am disagreeing very hard on leaving the metagame "to settle" after Urshifu suspect most likely removes it from the tier. I am not looking forward to dealing with Magearna in OU. (especially behind screens). About Urshifu, after it gets banned, I'll run the water one. Its underrated anyways...

    Seems more like Buzzwole needs an adaptation to its moveset, not that it falls off. I am saying that because Buzzwole stats are high enough that it can vary its movepool and still be excellent. For example: Earthquake deals with mons like Glowking which Buzzwole "cannot do anything against it"...

    I run Mono Attacking Phero, in my case Bug Buzz + Taunt. Block/Mean Look and Taunt is what makes the combination so deadly. I am still in search of the best Taunt Block Mon, but as described Tapu Fini comes close. I have to agree, I am surprised how good Hydreigon is again. I have tried a Defog...

    I am personally interested in the lower ranks as well - the top ranks look like they make a lot of sense (I especially appreciate Magearna at S Rank, I hope this motivates another suspect test for this...thing in the future) Swampert at B Rank: I would argue atleast B+ because it is one of...

    Considering I have had success with Mean Look Tapu Fini, I have to agree with this sentiment. I am currently experimenting on ladder with Block Taunt Quiver Dance Pheromosa as well. The idea was: In a Regenerator Meta trapping moves should be incredible. However, I still need to find my Future...
