Yeah that was slightly annoying when playing FR/LG, but I think the second gen pokes are the most overlooked. There were hardly any of them in D/P.

Hm. I'm not sure about that. Just scrolling through the Sinnoh Dex in my Platinum game and it seemed to have a decent amount of each generation to me at least. You have to remember that they have 400 and some odd Pokes to cram all in one game.

I think part of it might be because a lot of second Gen Pokes have new evolutions in Gen 4, like Murkrow and Misdreavus.

You Know It

Pfft. No.
Umbreon? Typhlosion? Tyranitar? Aggron? Garchomp?

Gen I was great, but it had some really lame Pokemon, like Mr. Mime, for example. C'mon.

Aye but that was Platinum. I haven't played that so they could have added several second gen ones in, which I think they may have. At any rate I think the HGSS pokedex is on serebii, so you could find out which pokemon are available before you beat the E4.

EDIT: From what I could see, there were no third gen pokemon there, and the only ones from Gen IV were evolutions, like Yanmega and Honchkrow

Ah. My bad. I thought you meant 4th Gen in general. Sorry.

Well, like I said, that's better than nothing, though it still leaves out hundreds of Pokes that I might want to use.

But still, at least I don't have to get stuck with Murkrow or Sneasel when they can evolve into something way stronger, like in FR/LG, where I wanted an Umbreon, but day/night had to be conveniently cut out so I couldn't evolve my Eevee.

This thread has potential. I'm going to be advocating competitive Pokémon for a wider audience now.

One of these days when I have some spare time, I'm going to come to this thread try to learn everything I can on competitive battling. All I know how to do is battle against in-game trainers, and let's face it, all there is to that is type matching and being at a higher level. Maybe then I won't get totally annihilated every time I attempt to play Shoddy Battle.

Hey guys, if you skip a Pokemon's evolution in order to learn certain moves sooner, can it evolve again?

Of course!

You know about EVs and IVs, right?

And I don't care much about competitive battling. Whatever floats your boat though. I'm no expert, but competitive battling probably isn't as tough as you think. The main part is just getting a team with all of the moves/stats that you want (Which is easy on Shoddy). Then... The battling part, I'm not so great at, but ZeG can probably help you.

You could get an emulator and try playing it in Japanese.

Virtual Boy Advance. Download it from here and I can find you a ROM and PM the URL if you'd like.

On an unrelated note, I beat the E4 in Platinum today after saving before Cynthia and resetting like six times. It came down to a one-Pokemon-left standoff, too. It was intense.

My Platinum team:
Lvl. 52 Rapidash
Lvl. 52 Luxray
Lvl. 52 Garchomp
Lvl. 52 Umbreon
Lvl. 54 Staraptor
Lvl. 55 Empoleon

Swee thanks dude. I steam rolled the E4 on Platinum version, my Giratina ass raped them. I forget what other Pokemon i was using though. I had a bit of trouble with the first trainer, using that super fast Pokemon. I ended up just using Genghar and cursing him.

Asthetics, it's killing me too. I would play it in Japanese, but I wouldn't know what moves I'm using... I could try though...

Nah, I'll just wait 2-3 more months... I really can't wait though. The graphics are 20x better than Platinum...

This might tempt you more, but there is a fan-lation patch that translates the move names to english. No dialouge is done, but that is not the point.

I tried getting an English patch for the game (ROM), but it was really screwy. I think I'll just wait for the DS releases anyway, it's more fun that way. To be able to trade/battle with friends and such. (And yes, I have a handful of friends that still play pokemon).

I'm 20, and I still think Pokémon is awesome. Not the anime, though, it sucks pretty hard. But the games are among the best RPGs, at least for handheld devices. And the competitive aspect is a very, very deep game that requires a lot of strategy and tactics. It's hard to convince people of that, though, they simply can't look beyond Pokémon's "kiddy" image.

Does anyone know if there have been any updates on Pokemon HoF?

If you have Diamond/Pearl/Platinum then go ahead and get it. If you don't you won't be able to get any Pokemon and will be stuck with the same 12.

I'm playing it right now.

Does anyone else find it strange that 3 of his pokemon now have blizzard?

Bit late with this response, but Blizzard is there over other Ice moves because the battle takes place in a Hail environment, giving it 100% accuracy.
If you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all...

I'm playing Yellow, and I just caught a Gastly

I'm training it, but it's progressing too damn slow


It has no decent attacks, so I have to rely on the "first out then switch" technique, but it's taking damn forever


any advice? should I just be patient?

Yea, but it is not easy. Use Timer balls after a lot of turns of Ultra balls. Dusk balls if it is in a cave or night time.


Okay, a albeit late, I got Soul Silver patched. So far so good, all the important stuff is translated so far, even some of the more story related dialouge. Picked Cyndaquill OFC and named him Toast. =3

I've really taken a liking to Bulbapedia just because I like the way it's organized. Though they don't always have guides for things if you just plain know nothing about it.

Yeah I used to use serebii, but I prefer bulbapedia now. It has way more information. The only thing I use Serebii for is the POTW movesets and stuff.
