I'd stick with the Ryhorn to be honest. I always feel secure with at least one ground type knowing Earthquake on my team. :)
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Not sure if joking, or EV training is even more ridiculous than Neil manages to convey.

Fletchling is incredibly OP when it evolves into Talonflame. It is MUCH better than Pidgey.

Only if you get a friend safari Fletchinder with the Gale Wings hidden ability.
But basically 120 base power for Brave Bird + STAB, is 180 base power. Give it a choice band to boost attack by 50%, so you end up with 122 base power in attack (134 with the right nature), and then the ability gives speed priority to flying type moves. So whilst you basically take a massive hit on damage, it's a great revenge killer. If you don't want to be locked into one move with the choice item, you could go for a 30% boost with a life orb.

However with a standard Talonflame you have the flame body ability which halves the number of steps taken to hatch an egg if it's first in party (even better is if you get the hidden Hatching O-Power), that coupled with fly so you can fly to Kiloude City to check for perfect IV's without having to take up an extra slot or mess about on the PC every 5 eggs, makes it a really useful pokemon to have if your breeding for nature/IV's.


>using smogonbird

Why not just get a Rotom-W as well, boooooo.

For anyone who has these games, I have been breeding Ekans' I have a couple spare. One is 6IV but you'll need an ability capsule because it's shed skin, the other is 31/31/31/x/31/31 and Intimidate. Both are Adamant. Both come with Sucker Punch.

I didn't use Smogon, I just noticed the ability on a traded one I got, and have a basic understanding of tactics, and spotted patterns of success online.

I would but only if it isn't a tier type game. I like to properly train and have decent IVs and whatnot, but I use my bros instead of what is good. Basically shitmons like Arbok :p

The cartoon HD app has 750 episodes of Pokemon and 14 movies

I want to watch the movies in the order they came out compared to the series
Im assuming the first movie was after the first series, but after that I have no clue, someone please tell me the order to watch them in

Side note; if you havt got cartoon hd yet, do. Seriously.

It's contentious as to whether or not the movies follow the timeline of the anime

but this thread might be of use, though it is only one persons speculation.

I'm sure it'll come as no surprise given the in game hints in X & Y, and the trend they've had of remaking every game two consoles down the line.

I really hope they expand it though and add additional content. I kind of feel like this was the weakest generation, especially once you beat the elite four and there's next to nothing to do.

They make it sound like it's a new game, in a different place, but with the same legendaries. I won't hold my breath in hope that they'll stick to that..

HOENN CONFIRMED


WOOOOOO


Yeah they'll obviously add a load of content. Think of how much shit they added in the Gold/Silver remakes. Plus these will be on 3DS, so more megas will be a thing. Probably explains where they were going with the leaks of Mega Latias and Mega Latios.

I'm hyped as shit for this. Definitely getting Alpha Sapphire :D

Did they add much in HG and SS? They had the pokemon following you, and a park for them. But beyond that I don't recall a hell of a lot more. Then again, it's been ages since playing it.

I too shall be going for Alpha Sapphire.

You could catch several legendary pokemon from other games, they added a safari zone, a park where you can move pokemon from GBA games to the DS games, the ability to rebattle gym leaders, raising the levels of the Elite Four, a Battle Frontier, and probably other shit I don't remember.


But yeah, HG/SS had the most stuff to do in it post-game. Hoping these remakes do something similar. I'll be getting Omega Ruby since my brother is going for Alpha Sapphire.
