used to hate solrock as a kid because i thought he would evolve, and by like lvl 70 i realized i had wasted my time

It's strange how some people just KNOW not to use legendaries on their team. I don't think the games ever told us not to, if anything it's the optimal choice. And yet we don't.

>> No.11011817

The games themselves in single-player are already easy enough that using them is essentially overkill, and the places that actually can challenge you like Battle facilities won't allow most of them to compete anyway.

>> No.11011825

i never use them myself but honestly using some of the weaker ones like the regis and legendary birds would be fine (hell regigigas is pretty shit compared to most normal mons). there's a big difference between that and blazing through the endgame with a level 70 rayquaza

i mean, i don't want to validate the "you didn't beat the game" assholes, but there is a nugget of truth that if you are reduced to having to use the equivalent of a gotoh in a fire emblem game you are admiting to having fucked up while growing your team before the end of the game and having to take the easy way out

Dodrio and Tentacruel are sick though.

Using Pokemon you like is way better than the same old shit every time. Glad you don't have Gengar, and using Mew or Mewtwo is some real fag shit.

Why a Solrock instead of a Lunatone? Because it's his fucking game. It's Pokemon. Unless you're playing competitively, you're a loser if you take it seriously.

Well, this and the Gen 3 thread got me replaying Emerald for the first time in..19 years, holy shit. I've replayed ruby and sapphire but my emerald cart I've saved from restarting.
Here's my team so far. I kinda didn't want to keep Azumarill/Gardevoir/Aggron as I used them in my first playthrough, but hell, they're so useful. flygon is another one I used before- and I'm itching to add him again, but might keep it as an HM slave and let it stay at the daycare to level up in the meantime.
I love Gen 1, but having just replayed Red and blue it's refreshing how much QoL improvements are in Gen 3, even Gen 2 really didn't feel like as much an improvement in comparison.
Sableye is more useful than I thought. Hoenn is fun to explore though I'm dreading needing to cycle through HM slaves for dive and waterfall.

there's a gen 3 hm slave that doesn't require you to cycle and it's dragonite
it can learn all the gen 3 HMs except for flash

>> No.11014646

Evee, weird as it is given it can only evolve into Umbreon/Espeon through RSE, is unavailable in all of them.
problem is, dragonite isn't in RSE and having to level up an HM slave to 55 kills the point of having an HM slave.
always thing it's interesting when people ditch their starter. I like how you could possibly have gotten all of those before Cerulean except dugtrio. Keeping Butterfree through Kanto always feels comfy.

You know what's funny? As a dorky teen virgin I wouldn't have used Breloom, would've thought Sableye is cool but too weak because I associated short, single evo pokemon with weak stats. But both holds her own well. I picked up breloom/shroobish because I realized Seedot was going to be a non-starter. As much as Gen 3 fixes, it still has some awful movesets.

(The list of search terms above was arbitrarily constructed by me and is missing many relatively high-ranking entries. Although I like porn a lot, I am not an expert either in Pokémon, which I haven't played all that much, or in bestial/furry porn, which turns me off for the most part.)

Just finished this morning. Here's my E4 team. took some detours to grind(find a heart scale for dragon breath on Flygon, get icebeam/thunderbolt)walrein was my HM slave who didn't make the cut. Flygon proved useful enough that
I hate to say it, but Aggron is kinda useless. He's a good damage sponge if you need to set up healing, but the gyms/E4 in emerald don't give him much to do.
If it was still Steven as champion, Blaziken would've been way more useful. But there's only a handful of E4 enemies she'd viable against in E.
Also, got a shiny Golbat for my troubles grinding. Coincidentally, my first shiny was a golbat in Emerald 19 years ago. I suspect a good chunk of shinies people see in a playthrough are cave filler you encounter grinding.
