  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. (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...
  6. 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...
  7. Pokemon Heartgold and Soulsilver In-Game Tier List (MkII)

    I also hard disagree on stopping the test before blue. Sure, the mons in kanto r very inefficient but just send the things to the bottom tiers then. Maybe things that stomp kanto hard can go to e, some that can't to F. Technically, the game ends after red yes? Then, basically only things after...

    All remakes suck. Now i don't actually mean this, hgss is my 2nd fav pokemon game but that is just my childhood bias and my love for walking pokemon speaking. Now i admit i don't exactly know gamefreaks policy, but remakes for me cater primarily to the older audience so rather than being tile...

    I'd hardly commend gamefreak and swsh over something literally every switch game not named animal crossing can do....instead imagine a situation in which the developers fking lock the save file with a patch lol.
  10. The Positives of your Least Favorite Pokemon Game and the Negatives of your Most Favorite

    The best Platinum -Obviously HMs -Who thought marsh areas were good? Getting completely stuck in mud tiles and having to spin like an idiot is one thing but when you instantly fall to the next deep tile.....Initially, i thought this was trivial because on route 212, you can easily skip through...
  11. (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Its japanese name is also foothold trap....can't imagine it not being an oversight esp considering stunfisk learns only one physical steel move (metal claw if you were wondering)
  12. SS Random Battle - Dynamax Voting

    Dynamax: Do not Ban
  13. Pokemon that disappointed you in-game despite looking good initially?

    Don't think that haxorus n vanilluxe's late evo levels r overblown at all. Recently ran emboar, swanna, simisage, excadrill, haxorus and galvantula, fighting every trainers and still can't get my team above lvl 46 when i got to the league. In fact, i had to use two rare candies to evolve...
  14. SS Random Battle Suspect Process - Dynamax

    Does this suspect involve mono random too? I can understand if dmax ends up being banned in the normal format but not the mono one. Its a relatively obscure tier already and its super swingy from the start anyway. At least dmax lets you have a chance at the often BS matchups there. Its a usually...
  15. SS Random Battle Suspect Process - Dynamax

    As disgusting dynamax is in general, I don't think it should be banned in random battles at all. Before I get into the details, its probably better to lower the gxe requirements. Now i've already got reqs myself, but requiring a high skill ceiling is kinda useless here cuz the battles r rather...
  16. Unpopular opinions

    To add to the exp share scandal, the real reason why despite exp share being on, ss had equal leveling curves was cuz of the short routes after motostoke. This is why till kabu's gym your team seems overleveled but suddenly at bea, the levels seem to get equal again. Despite the 7 levels...
  17. SPOILERS! Sword and Shield in-game team discussion thread

    Centiskorch is ok but as a coalossal user in sword, i think its rly great. Its not strong but the typing allows it to stomp a ridiculously high amount of route trainers. Centiskorch also is available aafter gym 3 unlike carkoal who can stomp milo. Not trying to say coalossal is better but if yr...
  18. SPOILERS! Sword and Shield in-game team discussion thread

    I think mr.rime's late game n doesn't learn ice beam naturally, meaning yr stuck with freeze dry. Centiskorch on the other hand is stuck with flame wheel n bug bite until the 50s. The fossils if i remember correctly have a poor level up movepool missing out on at least 1 stab. Plus, they learn...
  19. SPOILERS! Sword and Shield in-game team discussion thread

    Unfortunately, sneasel's only ice move is ice shard until it gets ice punch just before the league and swinub's stuck with ice fang so woukdn't rly count them as ice types I'm so disappionted that trs r a thing now...its cool for competitive variety but in game, acess to them is fking...
