    Jupiter might legit be the hardest battle in this game, and if she isn't, she's way up there.

    Pretty similar experiences to mine so far tbh. My Turtwig is Naive, so Grass Knot really does a chunk against it anyway. Roserade also hits pretty hard and that makes it even worse. Honestly, you'd be better off trying to set up Curse vs her Turtwig since she actually switches it out when the...

    Probably Glameow if it's not too much of a bother because it's Pearl-exclusive. While I'm here, sorry for not posting too much, I've been utterly swamped with work. Gonna drop a log this week.

    My personal opinion is that it's better to fight everyone because this guarantees the Nat. Dex unlock at the end of the game (which means you unlock most of the post-game), so people that do casual runs might keep that in mind. The Sinnoh games are unique in the sense that beating all trainers...

    So is getting bodied because you're 10 levels under a Leader's ace. Some times, as inefficient as it is, you gotta do what you gotta do. Closing the gap to like, 3 levels below once you're completely out of trainers is alright in my book. Sinnoh does have a steep level curve after all. :mehowth:

    Nice. Just a question tho... Any special reason for you to have caught a Klutz Buneary? :smogthink:

    Looking forward to it. Thanks for helping out.

    Makes sense I guess lol. Still, I gotta ask for the "non-overkill" strats next time. Either way, data is always good. Besides, as long as you're being clear on how you're getting your results like you were on that log, people can take their own conclusions.

    That sounds a bit excessive tbh... To say the least. It's always good to have a second look and you're using it anyway.

    H-How is that not a remake? :smogduck:

    To be honest, at this point, I'm more surprised when Grotle can learn something.

    The difference being Gen 4 only zooms out on Stark Mountain (and it does look bad). Gen 5? The camera is controlled by a drunken Lakitu. Go to Castelia and find one street where the camera is normal. You ain't finding it. It's a recurring effect they do, every once in a while the game turns...

    If only Z existed, we wouldn't need to mope... :psysly: Dropping a like just for giving GOAT Platinum the proper honorific. Also, an anthology would be trouble because jamming all games mean that people will notice just how badly they got ripped off by paired versions and then 3rd version...

    Just for the sake of clarification for the rest of the thread, 1~2 levels are usually fine. What matters most is transparency on how you got it. That allows people to make their own judgement on whether or not to follow suit themselves. Let's take a practical example: Note: On DP, Mars's...

    I'd like to raise some discussion on Move Tutors. The benefits are obvious, but how much of a cost are they when it comes to efficiency?

    Not on emulator because you can just change the internal clock but... Yes, pretty much. So you either save the Honey or save the mon. No third option barring save states but I'm not using those because I've lost entire GC "Memory Cards" to reloads that didn't have a proper save tied to them...

    The mon is generated on the honey slathering. If I save before I slather honey, I can save money by using the same honey to get different mons. If I save after setting honey, I can soft-reset for natures and level. The thing is, early on, your money is still pretty tight. So I couldn't just...

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

    Just gonna add a little to this. Slow, offensive mons. If you're slow, you gotta be bulky. Otherwise, you just don't get to land the big hits you want. This is why a lot of Ice-types are just horrible, especially in-game with all kinds of jank like Double Team and Confusion. As for my...

    You sure you want Partner Pikachu stats with a Light Ball? Speaking of which, remember all these Hat Pikachu events in SwSh? The ones that are pretty much worthless because you're pretty much just getting a Pikachu with a different model? Why didn't they get Partner Pika stats?

    After you get Waterfall, go full physical. Higher Attack + Swift Swim boost would make Floatzel stronger in the long run. Sure, you need to set up, but Floatzel hits hard enough to not need to set up rain for route clearing. Also, that frees up Specs for another teammate. Now, it's time for...
