    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    don't you think that thrash isn't very convenient for longer battles? it'd mostly serve to ko one mon reliably

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    I actually tried this before with both Pokémon, though I wished I had done it with tiering in mind. It's very frustrating due to the low catch rate (especially Ho-Oh) but it's great to have Return as the go-to move against generic enemies. I don't think it really helps Ho-Oh that much against...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    i bought enough to cap and test on everyone, which were around 7 Proteins and 7 Carbos - however it doesn't seem to make a difference, and ultimately it's not something we can assume on every playthrough (because some teams might need GC TMs for example), which is what made me doubtful to begin with

    Random Passerby what's your policy on vitamins? should they remain unused or can people buy them if they have a money surplus? i have 250k pokédollars and nothing to spend them on, for example

    tbh i don't think that exp groups factor in for gen 5-7-8 simply because the experience formula readjusts the experience gain according to your level, so slow leveling pokémon end up gaining more experience and fast leveling pokémon end up gaining less, pretty much balancing their leveling rates...

    You can catch wild Slowbros in the Slowpoke Well after getting Surf, which is the same time you're going to get the King's Rock.

    Neither Ursaring nor Granbull face speed issues against generic enemies, but that's because even Sunflora can outspeed a solid bunch of them. It's mostly against bosses that the lackluster speed becomes noticeable, and I'm fearing that it will affect their Elite Four performance. They would have...

    Trying Pokémon Crystal with Spearow, Kenya, Snubbull and post-Surf Ursaring. Everyone has 9 Atk IVs, 8 IVs everywhere else. At this point I got Snubbull and Kenya. For Kenya I calculated the experience I'm getting with standard Spearow after acquiring Kenya, and multiplied it by 1.5x to...

    I finished my playthrough with Mudkip, Tentacool, Chinchou and Clamperl (Gorebyss). I branched in two possible playstyles. The first one involved from the first Juan log onwards, where I advance further through the game. This is the "lower leveled" one...

    tbf given that granbull belongs to the fast experience group, it wouldn't surprise me that it gets inadvertently overleveled

    Pardon my language if I expressed myself wrongly in my question. English is not even my third language. You used the concept "sensible test" in your previous post, and I was demanding an explanation of what you meant by this, because I sincerely wanted to believe you aren't saying this because...

    GSC In-Game Tier List Mk. IV

    i think the first post clearly states it's for an efficient playthrough i don't think it's useless to a casual player, though. if i just want to go through the game, i can look up the list, see where my favorites land, and have more or less an idea of how difficult or easy it will be, or how...

    ooooooooooooooooookay so, I retried after having battled every trainer in hoenn before juan, including those I deliberately avoided battling with mudkip and tentacruel through the whole game to avoid overleveling (which is very generous, a normal team wouldn't be able to invest on lanturn like...

    I have been using Mudkip, Tentacool, Chinchou and Gorebyss in the last couple of days. Here are my logs until the last badge. At this point I went for Tentacruel. I caught a Lv35 one in the Abandoned Ship (also went for Ice Beam) while my Marshtomp was almost Lv35...

    tbh i'd prefer not to test further than lance (the other notable ones are Silver Ho-Oh, Gold Lugia, and VC Crystal Celebi, the first two of which massacre the rest of the game, I think)

    My experience tells me B, but I can settle for Ralts as A as long as it is not S, which I don't think it belongs to at all, and which is what I stated on my final conclusion. What do the others think, though? I know Texas doesn't agree but I feel that, according to what's explicitly stated in...
