    I want Game freak to play with the Psychic/Fight/Dark starter idea. For example: starters with Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic and Water/Fight types; or Grass/Fight, Fire/Dark and Water/Psychic types; with secondary types following the usual super-effective cycle in reverse
    This post makes me miss my Empoleon. That guy was a fuckin' tank. He got all the bitches too. He's gotta hold so many eggs on his feet it's like Harlem Globetrotters up in that ice field. Morgan Freeman would tell you he's weak to electricity, but this bird knows Mud Sport.

    Man I love fourth gen.

    if you talk to him again, he'll ask for it back, if you turn him down, he cries, I believe.

    I remember an anime that had a good chunk of an episode devoted to a Pokemon parody game called Nokemon.




    Like literally, the majority of the episode revolved around it alongside the main story. The anime itself was pretty decent though.

    Unova badges are quite different so I think I'll probably have a seperate case but the top one doesn't sound too bad.

    If anything I think the idea of making them their own special case would be awesome enough, like a symbol on the case specific for their region.

    The wild Pokemon AI is exceptionally stupid in B/W.

    Run into Golduck
    Send out water type
    Golduck uses soak
    Water type turns into water type

    It's because wild pokemon pick a random move.

    Trainers have a little bit of AI, but it's still semi-random.
    I think battle subway has fairly in depth AI, I also think they cheat sometimes (they predict switchins WAY TOO OFTEN)

    I would've at least hoped that it'd avoid damn pointless moves but... Meh.

    Speaking of God Damn Stupid AI...
    About Gen 1 again.

    (Yes, this is a hacked game but the battles themselves like this are not modified.)

    In case you were wondering, this happened because the first gen AI always used a* super-effective attack if it had one, regardless of whether it did damage or not. Zubat is Poison type, Agility is Psychic type, thus the Agility spam.

    Now you know, and knowing is half the battle. The other half is fighting against a really crappy AI.
    Wow.

    Wow.
    Seeing this video reminded me: you know what I miss? Moves that were powerful FEELING powerful. My main gripe is Ice Beam. One of the most powerful Ice-type moves. Most powerful with 100% accuracy, even. In Gen I, it was this crazy ass beam that slaughtered everything. Now it's just this dinky little beam that doesn't feel like it has any power behind it.

    Edited:

    Wait, no, I was thinking of Aurora Beam.
    Still better than the pissant beam of current gens, though.

    I disagree. In the earlier gens, it just felt like lifeless, but now, with moves like Surf shaking the screen, with huge, moving effects, feels powerful and badass.

    Surf filled your ENTIRE SCREEN WITH WATER in gen1. Like it FLOODED. Pretty much any move with more than 70 power shook the screen the entire time, several of the more powerful moves INVERTED THE ENTIRE SCREEN and STROBED LIKE MOTHERFUCKERS.

    Gen1 attacks were INTENSE.

    They were intense but looked like graphical errors more than attacks. When I used thunderbolt for the first time I thought my copy was broken.

    Gen II Surf was more like that, instead of random water drops and screws up and down it looked line an actual flood

    Anyone have a Skarmory and Nincada/Ninjask they'd trade me? Gen 5. I can try to get you something you'd like instead of just random crap Pokémon (keep it fair, no asking for Zekrom).

    Edited:

    I should also clarify: I'm heading to bed right now, so it'll probably be about 6-9 hours before I can trade.

    Ok so I've heard around the web that Hydreigon and co were originally meant to be all robotic and tank like.

    Holy fuck that should've happened.

    Slightly.

       You follow Suicune around and Eusine is there, also fix the radio tower, battle one last team rocket member, and that's about it
