Oh it's one of my favourites! Having electric attacks AND a fire attack is SO SO handy!
Yeah defence is still shit, but it's annoyingly useful in several situations, especially if you picked Oshawott and hate the fire monkey
Oh and it's always faster than the baddies
My rather thrown-together party that I'd accumulated had just started skirting Level 50 (or four of them had), but I just couldn't get motivated to train up in Victory road, so I decided to just give the league a BASH
My Samurott just TRASHED the whole Elite four. We did have a few hiccups but mostly it was one of two-hit KOs. I was quite lucky, in the 2-hits KOs, Surf was getting them down to just under half, so they never had a chance to use healing items.
I suppose I'd better just face N now, I'm a bit more worried about that, I'm shocked I got this far so easily
N is fairly easy but what happens after is so frustrating it'll make you CRY.
Oh well that's reassuring
YEAH I fucking did it Won't say too much as it would give away the story. But what a great story this time around, very EPIC
Samurott's Surf saved the day really, Druddigon is a surprisingly sturdy dude too. I've just woked up back home with my victorious team:
Samurott Lv58 (beating most of the last battles really gave it a boost!)
I finished two games today FFIV, YOU'RE NEXT
It's WINTER tomorrow. Is this something to get excited about???
Deerling and it's evolution change to winter form, and some of the areas where puddles were are now ice and you can slde across them, and just before dragon spiral tower is a mound of snow you can walk up to get an item previously unaccessable.
Yeah seems to change quite a few bits and bobs around Unova! Moreso than with any other seasons by the looks of it
I'm still about to CONQUER the fourth gym with my shitty zebra
*dies as soon as enemy appears*
Which one's the fourth one? I have a feeling either that or the 5th one was a real BUGGER for me. But after that it was plain sailing. That shitty zebra will clean up at the airfield gym!
Although by that time you'll have access to good Electric types and so will be able to stuff Zebstrika back in it's box to rot.
Good electric types like...? I didn't recall any of those
The fourth gym is that bitch with three identical Pikachu-lite creatures that she swaps EVERY turn.
Galvantula is a really good electric type i've found.. got really good sp. att and it's one of it's abilities, compound eyes, means Thunder has 100% accuracy.. and it's secondary bug type is useful too
Dwebble/Crustle stealth rock + rock slide.. annihilates them..
That's the one that I've been using. Somehow, in spite of having lower defence, special defence and HP than Zebstrika, it seems to die a lot less often.
Because of the bug typing it only takes normal (rather than double) damage from ground type.. which is insanely useful.. and it also resists fighting type moves, a predominant attack type in black/white
This bitch in the fourth gym is CERTAINLY taking her time to go down. But go down she WILL
I trained up a Krokodile for that gym, totally pasted her! Ground type FTW
She didn't bother using volt switch then either
Is anyone else having trouble linking to GTS?
Why is my forest crappy and empty?? Just sort of mindlessly wondering around at the moment. I accidentally walked into a house and has to battle the Diamond/Pearl Champion which I was not happy about as she slaughtered me
I am currently somewhere between the 5th and 6th gyms. I love the way the game just makes it SO easy to do pretty much everything that was a time waster before - for example giving you that egg which boosts the experience received, healing you at almost every turn. It's only taken them FIFTEEN YEARS to get it right.
It's something to do with linking up with black and talking to people there, OR SOMETHING. I think maybe there are things you can do to attract more residents and trees, not sure what though
From the ever so handy Bulbapedia:
White Forest (Japanese: ホワイトフォレスト White Forest) is a forest in eastern Unova. White Forest is exclusive to Pokémon White. Unlike Black City, White Forest has a variety of wild Pokémon as well as characters and tasks that do not occur in Pokémon Black. It is located to the east of Route 15.
The appearance of White Forest is dependent on the number of people currently residing there. When the player enters the forest for the very first time, the total number of residents is determined by the number of days it took the player to reach White Forest. The number of residents can be between 0 (low occupancy) and 10 (maximum occupancy). In addition to visual changes, some wild Pokémon will only appear with a certain resident.
At maximum occupancy White Forest contains large trees, several water surfaces and many patches of tall grass. At low level occupancy the trees are smaller, there are fewer or no water surfaces, and patches of tall grass are sparse. The Mayor's House and Pokémon Center are present regardless of how many people reside in the forest.
But how do you get more people?
The people on the first route after Opelucid city are HARD BASTARDS
All I want is a bloody Reshiram
I saw one on GTS in exchange for an Abomasnow but by the time I got one off the Poke transfer, it had gone.
Everyone wants Lv9 or under Legendaries that just DONT EXIST. why this fuck is this allowed to happen? It's literally 90% of all requests on GTS
I'm in that CAVE where the members of that RSPCP group reside. There is a random battle every other step. It's driving me MAD.
Super Repel! That's how I got through in the end!
I seem to have lost my DS. OVER.
Well I've got Thundurus now, but I can't get the other two without someone else catching the Black-only one and lending it to me
well he never bloody likes ANYTHING I've watched so I didn't expect much else. But I still like the animations and ranting
I presume the video game series is much better rhan the current episodes airing on TV. That new girl with Ash is no Misty or Dawn.
She really is insufferable isnt she.
Bring back Misty I say.
I have a Zekrom AND a Reshiram, motherfuckers I have been getting busy with the Pokemon Transfer lab and now have one of all the old Pokemon and probably about 40-50% of the newies. I'm working on it!
It's all gone a bit quiet
I've nearly finished my "seen" pokedex, just need to see a Braviary, and Volcarona and I think that's IT. Tonight I caught Kyurem and Landorus
All the trading on GTS has paid off though, I got a 2nd Master Ball from a guy in the Castelia Pokecenter
I've doing my third playthrough with horribly weak Snivy as my starter.
OMG new game. http://nintendo3dsblog.com/pokemon-heading-to-the-3ds
Pokemon Colosseum does seem like a good bet for 3DS now we are on par with the Gamecube. That made me DIE INSIDE sadly, I did it to get Ho-Oh
3rd Playthrough??? Are you resetting it each time or something?
