    Reshiram's tail is incredibly obviously a flaming torch. I see absolutely no problem with his being fire.

    seraphic fire never come to mind?

    like i mentioned already there's an obvious light/dark reference here

    just because it looks like one thing doesn't mean that the appearance alone determines what it is, keep that in mind. there can be exceptions.

    besides, it's the first announced fire/dragon type in the series
    (p.s. altaria can learn fire blast too)

    Re: Pokemon Discussion Thread

    K, so my OU team.

    Aerodactyl @ Focus Sash Standard suicide Aerodactyl lead, moving on.
    252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP
    Pressure ll Jolly
    Taunt
    Stealth Rock
    Rock Slide
    Earthquake

    Sceptile @ Salac Berry I know Sceptile's UU, and I don't particularly care. Sub stops CB U-Turn from Scizor from OHKOing me, and Focus Punch is there for all the Steel types.
    252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP
    Overgrow ll Jolly
    Substitute
    Swords Dance
    Leaf Blade
    Focus Punch

    Gyarados @ Wacan Berry The guy I usually switch in after Sceptile. Mostly just switches into...
    252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP (Aren't I SO creative?)
    Intimidate ll Adamant
    Dragon Dance
    Waterfall
    Earthquake
    Stone Edge

    Electivire @ Expert Belt Yup. Switches in after Wacan berry saves gyara from an electric attack. Meditate strengthens the two non-STABed attacks he has, while TBolt survives on EVs and Nature.
    212 Atk, 252 Spe, 40 SpAtk, 4 HP
    Motor Drive ll Mild
    Meditate
    Thunderbolt
    Ice Punch
    Earthquake

    Lucario @ Life Orb Has great synergy with Gyarados, since Latias got banned. Lucario isn't outspeeding Gliscor/Salamence to Ice Punch anyway, so Crunch is more effective to kill the Ghosts that are totally immune to Lucario's two other moves.
    252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP
    Inner Focus ll Jolly
    Swords Dance
    Close Combat
    Extremespeed
    Crunch

    Salamence @ Life Orb Basically filler because I couldn't think of anything else. I hate Outrage.
    200 Atk, 252 Spe, 56 SpAtk
    Intimidate ll Naughty
    Dragon Dance
    Dragon Claw (I despise Outrage...)
    Earthquake
    Fire Blast

    And, my sweeper that replaces Lucario for lulzy battles...

    Zangoose @ Life Orb This thing has actually saved me in multiple battles. Return is powerful STAB while CC and Shadow Claw give perfect coverage.
    252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP
    Immunity ll Jolly
    Swords Dance
    Return
    Close Combat
    Shadow Claw

    I'll get a sig later

    Re: Pokemon Discussion Thread

    Ok, to Falcon Pawnch, ill give a team rate.
    First of all, even if your going to go the total offense route, it wouldnt hurt to have at least 1 Special sweeper. I would suggest Choice Specs Jolteon over Electivire since your whole team aside from mence is skarm weak. Second of all, your only counter to ice type is Lucario, and if you have Zangoose instead then you team is going to be in trouble if it faces a weavile what with 3 ice weakness's. And as for your gyara, why would you stay in on a elictric move. The mixed attacker set on Vire has a 99% chance of killing with Thunderbolt, and most other users of thundrbolt will kill gyara too, especially after stealth rocks woth thunderbolt. Give it leftovers or lifeorb. If you predict the move, then switch. Also, to incease the amount of special sweppers, try giving Sceptile this set.
    Sceptile@Choice Specs/Choice Scarf
    Ability: OverGrow
    Nature: Timid
    Evs: 252 Spe, 252 SpA, 4 hp
    Moves
    ~ Leaf Storm
    ~ Energy Ball
    ~ Focus Blast
    ~ Hidden Power Ice / Dragon Pulse/Hp Fire( for killing scizor if your that worried about him)

    Areodactyl is fine, mence...Even if you dislike Outrage, the extra power is really worth it, as you gain KOs you can't get with dragon claw. That about sums it up, take my suggetstion if you want, and i fyou don't then don't.
    YAY there is nothing here.

    Hey, uh, hey. There's already a competitive battling thread. There's been a couple team-rates for in-game teams, but not everybody in here wants to talk about the competitive scene. Plus, the comp thread is lonely and needs love.

    i really kindof go with the same team-ish every time.
    for B/W i will probably go with:
    Grass starter
    charmander(traded){NO CHEATS}
    various others....

    and for random: ALL SMILEY:

    Can't wait to catch a Shimama and Meguroko ^^ Munna scares me kind of.

    Some of the attacks seem kind of... Far fetched... and others are down right epic.

    Anyone else notice the significant point that the Professor is a woman?

    Re: Pokemon Discussion Thread

    More info on Serebii.net's homepage.

    - You have to "transfer" Pokémon from 4th Generation games via a machine, kinda like the GSC time capsule thingie.
    - The "C-Gear" allows for communication via Wireless, Wi-Fi and Infra-Red during gameplay. Don't quite get it myself.
    - There is a new weather indicator on the bottom battle screen. I think this could mean weather is far more integral than it was in previous games. If Nintendo wants to be REALLY awesome they could have alternating weather in real time, which could perhaps even change the map depending on certain factors. The Lake of Rage almost did this in HGSS, so they could be expanding upon it. On the option screen there is also a time display and a battery power remaining icon, which are rather handy. Also it has a pleasing retro font.
    - The crocodile's mouth opens randomly during battle, showing that the moving Pokémon isn't limited to just limbs.
    - Hikers and umbrella ladies are back.
    - Same numbering system for the first few Pokémon (Pokabu is no. 4, like all the fire starters before it). The chinchilla is no. 78, which is rather odd. I expected 'im to be earlier. Although you could say this defuncts him as being the possible Rattata/Bidoof of this generation.
    - Utilises the same item sprites as generation 4. OH THE EXCITEMENT. :P
    - I... have no clue what "Select > Shift" means. Unless it's selecting which shift item you want to use. I dunno.

    Well, yes, Zekrom is way cooler than Reshiram. :P
    (I'm guessing you mean Reshiram is cooler than Zekrom, but you got the games backwards. Black mon is in White and vice versa).


    And eeee Chiramii is so cute! And Meguroko is cute AND awesome! I can already tell yall my team will have Smugleaf, Chinchilla, and Desert Croc on it.

    EDIT: http://pokebeach.com/2010/06/play-bl...nshots-artwork

    OH MAI GAAAWWWD!

    Just think...maybe Online exclusive areas? MMO-like features? This is epic!

    Holy crap, the professor isn't named after a tree! Apparently, Araragi is a butterfly or something.

    Uh, maybe it's the pose, but Mamepato looks like Honchkrow. And Hihidaruma totally has a mustache.

    Gear is possibly the most uncreative Pokemon name I have ever seen. It's a gear. It's also called Gear. Also, I think the Pokedex designs are really cool.

    Chiraamii is a mouse with a face. :>

    I bet the middle version thingamabobber would either be Grey or Tan Zebra

    I hope America doesn't translate it. Araragi is a pretty cool name.

    I know they're gonna translate it, but one can dream

    Well, it's Wikipedia, so who knows.

    Actually me and my friend were thinking up professor names and Magnolia was one of them. If they do translate it, Professor Magnolia sounds more catchy than Professor Yew.

    I love friendship-based evolutions in Diamond/Pearl/Platinum. I use a really cheapo method in maxing friendship :P

    Diamond/Pearl/Platinum friendship based evolutions the cheap way- Keep feeding pokemon friendship raising berries until the text box says "It won't have any effect" then level up your pokemon by one level. There, I just saved you many many many many many days of evolution hell. (Just don't deplete your berries, save some for planting in the dirt so you have more berries to feed your Pokemon

    Alternatively, you could make it hold the sooth belle, give it ten vitamins in each of the two stats you want to be the highest anyway, then give it a haircut. Maybe ten minutes of walking will be enough to evolve it after that.

    I have a ton of berries :P So I won't have to go through the trouble of going to Daisy in Veilstone every day to get one measly massage. I usually go to the massage just because I get free Accessories :P

    Re: Pokemon Discussion Thread

    I agree with mamthew's friendship evolution strategy.... As long as you still want to USE that pokemon to fight. ALL of the berries that raise happiness lower a base stat, and therefore weaken the Pokemon. But if you want to merely use the pokemon in a contest or just to get the Dex data, Yamigekusu's fast tactic is a good choice.

    On a different note, I just restarted Emerald and Platinum a day ago. I'm going for Emerald first, and I just got to the 7th gym *A little slower than usual, but I like to level my pokemon equally* ...

    ...Does anyone have any ideas for a good Emerald team?
    My current team ATM is
    Lairon, Blaziken, Gardevoir, Vibrava, Wailmer, and Manectric. Yes, they will all be fully evolved, but I'm currently trying to get them all to level 40.

    Oh yeah and on one more point.... Munna scares the HELL out of me It probably evolves into some kind of freaky manbearpig -_-
