So, for the 3rd Pokemon to appear, you both have to be online at the same time and the other person has to have defeated the Elite 4.
When you encounter that 3rd Pokemon and add it to the possible list from the person, does it stay available to find if they then go offline, or can you only find it while they're online?

I can leave my 3DS on and plugged in if anyone wants my 3rd (i'd kinda like to know what it is as well
Edit: Ah nvm no I can't. It won't let you stay online if you close the 3DS to put it in sleep mode or w/e they call it. Ah well.

I have yours on the list it's Cloyster

No, once you're online at the same time as that person and it reveals their 3rd Pokemon you have access to it whenever.
#84
Oh good.

Cloyster? :S Poo.

Nietsche, you should add me. You got dat Ivysaur in yours and I want <3

Cloyster is good though Piloswine/Mamoswine is the better 3rd slot for Ice, but Cloyster is a close 2nd.

I'm so conflicted whether to run Huge Power Azumarill or Protean Greninja on my new team... it involves Baton Passing speed and attack boosts so Azumarill naturally fits the bill.. but I already have a slow water type physical attacker on my team. OR should I take him off and run Protean Greninja and Huge Power Azumarill? So many choices so little time...

Hmmm....
#87
It is, but Azumarill doesn't have the bulk to pull off Belly Drum I don't think. You'd have to predict the opponent to switch or set up, because any neutral attack with decent BP will probably kill it. Much too risky, throw a Choice Band on him and have Huge Power. That's plenty of firepower.

I really want to share my strategy for it on here but idk if I'll be battling any of you at some point

Let's just say Baton Pass with some very scary boosts will help him out a lot
#88
I think it can survive a good bit if you put most of his EVs in defenses and HP since Belly Drum will give you more than enough attack, but yeah speed would be a concern because even a Belly Drum Aqua Jet wouldn't OHKO common tanks like Skarmory and he could just Whirlwind you out to lose the boosts
#89
I think I've added everyone who's posted their FC now. Time to get catching!

Well don't forget Azumarill lost no weaknesses and gained one, as well as losing a resistance (it did get dragon immunity, and if you run sap sipper that's two).

I think Azumarill will become more of a threat with its new ability to likely OHKO Dragon, Dark, and Fighting types with Play Rough, but I don't think it will quite make it up to higher tiers. Too many common threats just wall it. Unless you're passing speed to it it's easily countered by Venusaur who is becoming even more popular, or Aegislash who is dominating the metagame right now.

The real new story to look at in my eyes is Adaptability Crawdaunt, who gained Aqua Jet as an egg move. It has the power of Azumarill with actual bulk and more coverage.

Yeah Crawdaunt looks pretty good, I'm excited for Mega Mawile too. I thought he was the coolest looking Mega evolution and his defenses are pretty good plus he gets Huge Power with a good base attack.

678 base power is going to put a good dent in most things even if they resist the attack, and it gets even crazier if you Baton Pass a few speed boosts to him or Swords Dance and Sucker Punch anything to death
#93
I spent last night running some tests on Pokémon Showdown, and I can tell you if Mega Maw is as good ingame as it is there it's almost broken

PS isn't perfect yet though, for example it really pisses me off that using Sucker Punch on a King's Shielded Aegislash lowers your attack when ingame it does not. I've lost to a couple Aegislashes who couldn't touch me otherwise that way

Just added everyone on the list so far. I think my mii name is Sbbass or something along those lines.

I'm playing Y right now, but I have both versions. I haven't gotten to the Elite Four, I have 7 badges, about to get the 8th. If I'm online, I'll gladly help out anyone with trades.

Yeah, the combat isn't the smoothest with the 3D on. Which is fine, I don't think it adds much anyway. In general the 3DS's 3D tends to not add much or hurt my eyes. I just leave it off.

Add me, I'll be on for a little while and I can help you evolve your Scizor.

You mean to tell me you're breeding and NOT using Ditto?

#106
I really hoped that there would be a Dunsparce Evo this gen. I mean it already has little fairy wings, so a cool normal/fairy evo would be pretty cool. Maybe even ground/fairy.

How is Granbull looking in competitive with the new typing? I've always thought it was cool.

About the same. Gained a weakness and traded immunities.

It's too slow and has no bulk. You need one or the other typically to be viable.

Can someone tell me what my safari is by the way? I'm far from being able to access friend safaris, but I'm curious.


I have your info, it'll be in the OP in a few minutes

But you're normal type with Aipom and Kecleon so far. I take it you haven't beaten the E4

Kecleon is eh but Ambipom might be my favorite 4th gen evo of old Pokemon, the thing has tons of possibilities

Bleh. Not a fan of either of those. But maybe I'll get lucky and get a ditto for the third one. Although I probably just jinxed it.

And yeah, I only have two badges.

Been a long time since I played it, but isn't he pretty close to the older brother in the underground bit? I think you can get Daisy to groom your Eevee too, but I don't know. The internet is your friend.

jeez, how many free Pokemon do you get just by doing the main story?

just did that first mega evolution battle and got a Lucario.
