As I don't typically do double battles and I quit the competitive metagame altogether, I wasn't aware that heal pulse got boosted by that as well.

 

Yeah, I don't really use it myself, but, still Clawitzer is pretty good.

I prefer mega-Blastoise to do the same thing as Clawitzer personally. It just feels more sturdy.

You won't really need to waste a mega-evolution, though.

Fair enough. I'm just not known for using many types other than fire or dragon.

I made a pokemon theory. Would it be better posted here, since this serves as a mega thread for Pokemon discussion, or given its own topic, for the theory to be discussed there, so as not to derail this thread?

With all the rodent type pokemon that we have, I wonder why there's no Hedgehog pokemon, yet. Preferrably a blue one, with a black and red shiny form.

 

Also, more pony Pokemon. Because reasons

 

I always thought of Sandslash as a kind of hedgehog.

It's a pangolin. It's like an armadillo anteater hybrid with scale-like plates. Shaymin ground-form however is a hedgehog.

It is but take note that it's a bit of a slow Pokemon so Trick Room, Tailwind or a Baton Pass from Ninjask/Scolipede can help make it outspeed more Pokemon. That's my advice.

Sounds like it would be much better in double battles due to it's reliance on trick room/tailwind, seeing as those are both really common moves in most competitive double battles. Plus, like someone mentioned earlier heal pulse is boosted by Mega Launcher, so that makes it even more useful in a 2v2 situation.

 

 

Or maybe I'm wrong and I don't know anything about Pokemon battles anymore.

Yeah. I also think the Pokemon would do a better performance in Double Battles with all that support.

I've never completed the national dex myself and I probably never will, but it's always super awesome hearing about other people completing it.  :pinkie:

I've always used cheats to complete the dex, it was such a bother in earlier years because there where no Pokémon distributed over Wi-Fi and you had to go somewhere to get event Pokémon which were usually either in Japan or the US or somewhere random in Europe. It has now become a lot easier but some Pokémon are still really freaking hard to get, for example those you simply cannot trade over the GTS.

in the newer games i believe you can get some pokemon in the friends safari however some of them are still harder to find, the games are overall very complex with this, i could still never find deerling in Pokemon X

I've never had much problem with completing the Pokédex myself. I've completed it in Black 2, X and Alpha Sapphire actually. It just takes the right games for transferring and a lot of patience to get them all without the use of cheats.

 

Completing the Pokédex has always been one of my favourite things to do in the series. As long as it is, it's more fun and more of a challenge than most of the post-game stuff.

I was able to complete the dex in Red version, though I'll admit to using the Mew Glitch and a modified version of that same glitch to get mew and a couple of version-specific pokemon.  Haven't finished a dex since, but I will be attempting to finish the Kalos national dex soon.

I'm just way too lazy for that stuff, it seems boring to me. Same goes for intensive breeding and shit to get a combat-ready Pokémon. Not keen on spending several hours just for one Pokémon that's good enough to use in a competitve battle. Meh.
