I caught a Honedge and had no idea what it was. So I ditched it.I beat the whole game
and I still have no idea where to catch Honedge.
Not an NPC, but early-game Scraggy hordes are the most evil things alive. All of them know Sand-Attack, Leer, and Low-Kick. My Flabebe nearly lost to them because Fairy Wind kept missing. After like 4 switches, I killed the fuckers.Any NPC whose Pokemon has Protect/Detect, an evasion increasing move, or and accuracy decreasing move because I can never hit the damn thing.
Korrina is a joke, I swept her with my Bibarel, and no, it didn't have moody.I blitzed through them in my Speedrun with Monferno. Grass Knot is awesome.
Honedge is something everyone must run in-game. It's just that good. Also I don't know how you would have beaten Korrina without Honedge, so kudos.
I agree. There's a similar situation in the original RBY games, where after Erika there's three different paths you can take, so they're all the same level, but whichever one you take first will be difficult since you'll be under-leveled no matter what. At least in GSC where there were the split paths they made it so both were a natural progression from gym 4, although that results in whichever bit you do last becoming very easy. In Yellow the way they did it meant that there was a huge gap between gym 4 (L.32 Gloom) and gym 5 (L.50 Venomoth), even though really you can get from gym 4 to gym 5 just by going down cycling road, which has only about 20 trainers on it. You don't level up proportionally, although there are plenty of good places to train at least.I wonder if I was the only one who had a problem with CYnthia's Milotic in Platinum that loved to do Mirror Coat.
I found Sabrinas Espeon quite tough in HG/SS as its got so much power and its not that long after the elite four so you would not of had much of a chance to level up yet.
also in HG/SS the level increase between Pryce and Clair is so drastic that you may be underleveled when you play her as there is not much grinding opportunities between her unless you fight 100s of wild pokemon lol.
Bryce strongest was 34 and clairs was 41.
then the level increase between Claire and Elite 4 is drastic again.
since victory road has weak type pokemon XP wise it takes a lot of effort to be around level 50 for Lance. (That was one of the more frustrating elements of HG/SS the level spikes in short periods of time between major NPCs)
I'll admit, I also had trouble with the Luxray tribe, but I've heard it becomes rather easy if you have something with Lightningrod.The Luxray tribe from PMD2. Seriously, it's fucking impossible.
Honorable mentions goes to:
Brock in Pokemon Yellow.
Red in GSC and HGSS.
N at that wheel-thing in BW1(fuck you Sigilyph).
Lance in Pokemon Yellow when you do not know that Ice is super-effective on Dragons(I was three years old dammit).
Dialga in PMD2(Roar of Time spam).
Pike Queen Lucy and her Shuckle of Doom.
As a 9-year old (or something like that), I never had any good steel-types, nor anything good with Taunt, but I beat it with Swampert after a few tries. The Milotic was a bitch though, I agree.And Lucy's Shuckle, I agree, is a huge pain. But, its moveset is: Toxic/Sandstorm/Rest/Protect iirc. In other words, it is completely powerless against Steel-types, Taunt, and Nidoking/queen. I found her Milotic to be much more difficult.
I'm pretty sure the fighting types in this game are sufficient to deal with Hydreigon (you do have Fighting types in his game, right? There were so much of them in Unova) . Mienshao and the musketeers outspeeds and the former has Jump Kick / High Jump Kick while the latter all have Sacred Sword . Sawk, Throh and Conkeldurr has enough bulk to survive and retaliate with Close Combat, Superpower, or Hammer Arm.BW1 Ghetsis' Hydreigon. Loaded with powerful special attacks to spam to its heart's content, though it may do you a favor if it goes with Focus Blast what with its horrible accuracy. If I can stomach it, I'll attempt to EV train a Haxorus to take it on next time I play White. (yay for not having easy access to Power Bracer and Anklet...)
Usually by the time I face him, I'm a bit underleveled and don't usually have access to link trade. Interestingly enough, my Darmanitan in White2 DESTROYED his Hydreigon with a Hammer Arm as they were pretty close. I've also only played through that game like two or three times.I'm pretty sure the fighting types in this game are sufficient to deal with Hydreigon (you do have Fighting types in his game, right?

Whitney and BW1 Ghetsis seem to be supported by most people. The ones arguing against those seem toSo I'm guessing there's no general consensus on the top hardest ones?
