HG/SS only serves for filler and nostalgia , its a good thing for pokemon fans who are tired of waiting for the next generation of games (but i do love the nostalgia of the game sweet memories of G/S/C haha)
They pretty much driven themselves into a corner with DP/Plat series Legendary pokemon ...i wonder what will they do? they already ascended from a rare pokemon and a villainous team that only wants to steal pokemon to pokemon that created the world&universe and a villainous team that is trying to destroy the universe :\ ( like when this is all happening no one does anything besides the Champion of the said game ....+_+)
I just onder how there going to up that
So what starter pokemon(s) did you guys start off with? Any favourites? Would you choose the same one again?
Kanto: Bulbasaur - Charmander - Squirtle / Pikachu
Johto: Chikorita - Cyndaquil - Totodile
Hoenn: Treecko - Torchic - Mudkip
Sinnoh: Turtwig - Chimchar - Piplup
None of them.
^Mudkip for the world!\o/
Anyone saw the new video?
I usually vary my team most of the times I play through the games, since it can get a bit repetitive picking the same starter/picking the same flying, etc. everytime. My favorites are Squirtle for 1st Gen, Totodile for 2nd and the others I've only played through once because I didn't like them.
I dont go anywhere near the grass type. So its mostly a straight choice between the water and fire starters. The first time i played them, i went with charmander, cyndaquil , mudkip, piplup. But i play it again and again so it changes. My favourite has to be mudkip. Swampert is a god. Earthquake <3
Anyway, with heartgold and soulsilver i have been playing it but i stopped. I got to the fourth gym and i cant be bothered to continue. Ill go back to it one day. I stopped because before i got it i finished crystal on a emulator. Feels slightly like playing that all over again. So now im playing platinum. And genuinely in love with my team so far. Only around level 20 but:
Rotom (lawn mower version)
Once they all fully evolve, man they'll be awesome. I dont think iv ever been in so much love with a team. Anyway whats your favourite ever teams?
my favorite starters are these
Cyndaquil/Totodile (i cant choose i love these two )
Mudkip / Torchic
Piplup >while im not really into Piplup i do love its final evolution Empoleon
telling from my list , yeah i love water pokemon ...Blastoise will always be my favorite final evolution haha
ooh common pokemon list (im not adding Legandaries)
Dragonite / Salemance / Garchomp (well my HG/SS is now rigged with all three dragons)
Alakazam/Gardevoir(Gallade is cool too)
(insert starter pokemon)
I cant believe I jsut discovered this thread!!! I'm not circulating enough...
I was thinking of getting the HeartGold or SoulSilver but now I hear there's a new one on the horizon?
For Johto, it was Cyndaquil. Almost always Cyndaquil. I love fire Pokemon. Their fire attacks are just awesome.
Fuck Hoenn and Sinnoh. Nothing beats original Pokemon game.
Strategy is pretty easy. Only thing that's a problem is it being time consuming, as you have to train all your Pokemon to stand a chance. As a newb, I focused on my starter and used other Pokemon as fodder. After a long time, I started to focus on the team, as five midlevel Pokemon does more damage than one highlevel Pokemon. It's worth training them.
So as you can see, I have a grass fetish cept when it comes to Chikorita.
Why? They have some cool Pokemon in them too, just not as many. Plus, the games are still fun even with less fun Pokemon. The old games have plenty of crap Pokemon as well (Hoppip, Jigglypuff, Paras, Ekans, etc.)Originally Posted by M3J
I thought i'd share this video, with those who havent seen it. Absolutely awesome!
This is for Dermie, the following story.
So I was walking back to Goldenrod, when all the sudden I encountered Entei. I didn't even battle or anything with it, I just threw an ultra ball and bam! I captured it! It was easy as poking one's self (sorry if you're paralyzed or handicapped) or counting to 1 (sorry if you're bad with numbers). Now I have a powerful Pokemon!
I now have a Typhlosion! I'm training my Pidgeotto to become Pidgeot now. I have Gyarados because I wanted Surf and I fished and got Magikarp instead. I had rare candy and I thought, why not feed it candy and hope it evolves? I want victribell, but I think I need to trade it. <_< Bellsprout and Weepinbell are soooooooooooooooooooo slow, which is shocking despite it being lightweight. X__X
Raticate is meh. I have Abra and Ghastly but I'm ignoring them because I'm an idiot.
For HeartGold btw.
OMG POKÉMON BLACK AND WHITE LOOK SOOOO AWESOME, JUST LOOK AT THIS SHIT!
