Yea that was the best battle I've had. I couldn't believe it. I didn't even need the stealth rocks. I did get lucky with the confusion. 3 turns and it never hurt itself. would've been better if pinsir was my lead. then it would've been a 6-0 sweep.
The king of the hill is basically a battle thing where one person is the "king" and then people can challenge that person and if they beat him then they become the king. And so on. And if there is no king then any 2 people can battle and whoever wins becomes king.
its one of the 5th gen unevolved fossils. rock/flying type. i had 4 grass types, a fire type and something else. i was no match for that thing. i didn't even have any moves that was supereffective against.
Yea but its not like you HAVE to follow the tiers and all the stupid rules they make. The good thing is it looks like its a little more like Melee. It doesn't seem as floaty as Brawl was. There is no random tripping like in Brawl. It also looks like they might trying to balance the characters a bit. Bowser has been changed. He stands upright now and his attacks might be different. They have given Pit a new moveset.
Well technically Pokemon Black White and Black White 2 are DS games but yea I see your point. I've been enjoying my 3DS with Mario Kart a few Mario games. I should check out the Fire Emblem series then I could get that for it too. I'll probably also get SSB4 on both 3DS and WiiU.
Now the WiiU needs more games. But there are a few coming out this year I plan on getting for it.
Yea thats true. But from what I've seen so far X and Y does look great. Sky battles for just flying types and pokemon with levitate. And has swarm encounters which is 5 wild pokemon at once. And the Pokemon that have been revealed so far I like more than most of the 5th gen ones. I already have a 3ds anyway.
There is a new Zelda for 3ds coming out. Its a sequel to Link to the Past. So that would be worth playing.
yea no wonder i cant win on wifi. i was always too lazy to grind and train my team properly.
By the way I might be transferring all my pokemon up to 5th gen games soon. So if I do we'll only be able to battle on Showdown. I just want to finally move on from 4th gen. When 6th gen comes out I'll be getting one or both and I'll move to 6th gen too.
i've been really enjoying the random battle option on showdown. it gives both sides a random team. can have any pokemon on the team. the stronger pokemon are in the 70 levels the weaker ones are 80+ levels. the weakest pokemon are level 99. so it is part luck based too.
today i faced a guy who got a level 99 magikarp to lead off the battle lol.
yep. there are more people than you think that do that. besides you can do other stuff while resetting. i was mainly resetting while watching tv or when i wasn't at home. or while i was playing through another pokemon game. besides it didn't actually take too long. and besides i think shinys are better if you find them legit without using action replays. i also had found shiny charmander by using the masuda method.
As far as I know right now most of the remaining active members are keeping in touch using the new group conversation feature. Beyond that there are talks about creating an IRC or Showdown server for the group. I'll invite you to the main conversation
i found 2 shinys while the site was down: shiny blitzle after about 2,000 random encounters on my black and a shiny totodile in heartgold after 3,592 soft resets. in hg/ss you can see shinyness BEFORE you choose a starter. so you can check all 3 at once.
i don't know yet what shiny i should hunt for next.
lol i dont like my new username. But whatever
yea seems like none of the groups are returning. This is what chaos posted in one of the threads in the forums: "the social groups wont be coming back. what usually happened was the creator of a group would forget about it, and then the spambots would spam em up, and nobody would remove the spam. fuck that" his exact words.
