    Pokemon that disappointed you in-game despite looking good initially?

    shout out to how HGSS hardly fixed this ah yes, lemme go minigame grind, that doesn’t kill the pace of the game at all (phone calls for stones are remarkably unreliable).

    A wild Zubat appeared! What Pokemon have annoyed you the most in playthroughs and in general?

    Adding to the above, Bronzor isn’t even a good Pokémon when you use it either. The typing would be cool if almost all the bosses didn’t hit you for neutral damage, and Bronzor’s base 24 offenses are so bad Extrasensory won’t save them. And assuming you get it early, you have to use Bronzor’s...

    Yeah, that's what I was trying to say more or less. But when your character is kinda a jerkwad with no reason to exist otherwise...

    Yeah Scott was an almost entirely pointless addition to Emerald. You don’t need an entirely new character to advertise a new feature (hi Ultra Recon Squad! Not entirely the same thing but they were also pointless characters despite showing up more than you’d think they do). Similarly, I think...

    Yeah you didn’t say that. I apologize. Overly edgy themes and difficulty in relatively kid-friendly works or former kid-friendly works is just kinda my berserk button. I feel like some works try too hard to pander to the older crowd. An example of the latter is almost everything about the game...

    Just stopping by to provide a counterpoint on challenge in kids games: Rayman 1 from 1995 is what happens when challenge from a friendly looking game goes too far. The game looks like this, it's beautiful: How bad is it...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    I never bother with vitamins casually barring the ones I pick up in the field. The way I see it, it’s just another extraneous thing we need to ignore like the Daycare to be as close to objective and “efficient” (yes I know that’s a buzzword) as possible.

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    Not to start an argument, but actually there have been Pokemon that have cases for being gotten later. In BW1 Purrloin was absolutely one of these cases. No Dark STAB until Pursuit at level 15 is just pitiful and it is far and away the weakest early thing you could use outside of the infamous...

    Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon In-Game Tier list (v2)

    Might as well call it Sandygag because that mon sucks Good luck with non-STAB Psychic and Giga Drain starting out! I’d be surprised if it’s higher than D, I didn’t like it when I used it.

    Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon In-Game Tier list (v2)

    Magnemite is a Pokemon I feel is a strong A tier, but definitely not S. Magnemite unlike it's BW2 counterpart has actual moves this time around in ElectroWeb, Shock Wave, and Signal Beam from tutors. So what's the problem? It falls flat for 80% of Melemele and Akala. You beat the Normal totem...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    Not to be that guy, but when Volt is done testing Cyndaquil can we please just get a consensus on it and then try to stop talking about the mon? I mean, I know it’s a starter, but it’s been suffocating discussion for most of like the last 10 pages and I don’t think anything major about the mon...

    Are direct sequels inherently bad?

    I like both BW1 and BW2 a lot. Some of the best games in the series bar none. Expanding on what I said earlier, BW1 for sure had flaws. Evolution levels kinda sucked for a few mons and not everyone was on board with the thing of “nothing but Unova till credits.” But as a purely new experience -...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    Just the Elite Four + Champion should be the end goal. Red is mostly arbitrary and tiring to test to, so I think excluding Red is the best move.

    Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon In-Game Tier list (v2)

    Actually, my Leafeon notably 1v1ed Hau’s Malie Raichu with a Z-move. You tank the Psychic which does over half then kill back with Bloom Doom off Razor Leaf, though Raichu outspeeds. I’d imagine X-Scissor with a Z-move would do the trick at the League, too.

    Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon In-Game Tier list (v2)

    Played for a few hours today after a roughly one week break: here's some mook thoughts (about to go up against Togedemaru): Picked up Pancham, with a 20% rate it's not too bad to find. While it's not super GREAT right out of the box (Crunch at level 42 / no good physical Dark STAB - it can't...

    Are direct sequels inherently bad?

    uh I like BW1 more than BW2. firstly BW1 has some actually good pacing and doesn't overstay its welcome. Yes, gap between badges 6 and 7 and then more trainers in Plasma gauntlet I'm looking at you. secondly it feels like a remake of gen 1 with all the annoyances removed and stands on its own...

    Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald In-Game Tier List Discussion

    Yeah I saw Slow EXP Group as a con. That post of yours was good. Not trying to nitpick, it's just I only think stealing Berries became mainstream when DPPT gave us the Pluck TM.

    Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald In-Game Tier List Discussion

    Not to be that guy, but I have never heard of someone advising Thief on Ralts to steal Sitrus Berries as coverage. I've played RSE back since it was new and nobody ever suggested that to me. Nova's levels may be a little low, sure, but the EXP group is definitely a problem for Ralts.
