There's probably already a topic on this, but I couldn't find one cause I'm too lazy. I've got my pokemon addiction growing, and anyone wanting to suck up their pride and talk Pokemon just converse here!

Bah, I haven't played Pokemon in a while. Last Pokemon game I've played was Emerald. Beat it, but I was constructing a team for Battle Frontier, the cliched Eevee evolution team and then I got bored of EV training and quit. :( I might pick it up on day and play again. :o

Play Gold/Silver? *shot*

Seriously, GSC is the best of the lot. I may have to look into getting one of RSE though because I wouldn't mind a new challenge. :o

Natures put a new twist in the plot, Mike. They make the game a lot gayer, but more fun and not so unfair

And yes I've got my whole team leveled up to 100, and it's my permanent team that I've gone undefeated with. On GSC I've got Umbreon, Espeon, Vaporeon, Lugia, Mewtwo and Tyranitar all waiting to go. I've kinda developed a bond with my silver game, seeing it through to the end. I even pretended to perform CPR on it when it got washed in the washing machine =P

Main reason I got bored, heh. EV training is only good if you're REALLY bored and have nothing to do. Like you're on a vacation or something.

Aurora Ticket IIRC (Either that or mystic, but I think that's Deoxys), which you get either from Ninty themselves at their silly events (ie Mew, Celebi, etc) or by record mixing with someone who already has it.

And I have somewhat a similar bond with my Gold, kinda tried to complete the dex, but it's frozen at 227 because I haven't worked on it in a while.

My Blue Pokedex is at 46 because I don't care about that aspect.  Gold is at 157 because Stadium 2 is silly and wants you to fill it up most of the way for some "cool feature" that didn't have that restriction in the first game.

I will take this opportunity to plug my PKUtility, which does stat and damage calculation and can sometimes help find your DVs.  The previous link requires Excel in order to do anything meaningful; a version for the OpenDocument format is also available.

Natures: Good idea but poorly implemented. Reasons: only factor to getting a good one is luck and the game keeps what they do hidden. The next game should tell players what natures do and have ways to change a nature.
EVs: Hate them. They're completely hidden, with no way to find out their exact number (in-game only), and they restrict freedom in terms of viable strategies.
I've collected every species in Blue and Silver. My old team was Feraligator, Celebi, Charizard, Ampharos, Tyranitar, and Mewtwo (used mostly as an ace in the hole in a tight spot).

Hay guiz, I made a table showing how many points each game tracked by TSC is worth. You should go see it.
Also v2.0 of my TSC calculator is available to use. You should totally use it.

While we're talking Pokedexes...

Blue: Fully complete from Bulbasaur to Mew - and I've never been to a Nintendo licensed Pokemon event.

Silver: Completed from Bulbasaur to Ho-Oh. As I said, I've never been to one of those "LEGENDARIES! GET YOUR LEGENDARIES!" events, so I never got Celebi. I mainly bought Crystal for this reason - then found out when I got home that Celebi was only in the Japanese version. As you might expect, I was damn pissed off when I read that.

My brother has the other four versions up to Crystal, which I've used over the years as tools to raise better Pokemon or to complete my Pokedexes.

Of course, some of you may also remember my attempt at speedrunning Gold. I eventually got my time down to 4 hours 37 minutes, but the time you will see on SDA in the near future is 4:13. I'm going to have to watch it and see the merits of getting a Rod and Poliwag versus catching the Red Gyarados...

Rayku that is really lol. Like Skitty/Delcatty is any good.

And how do you consider four more, considering there's only Jirachi and Deoxys as extras, and you can't get multiple forms of Deoxys in one game?

I got all 200 in Ruby non-national, but then I restarted. >_>

The move set structure for the series might need some reworking. (Mostly when it comes to HM's.) Here's one of my thoughts on what might be a good idea for next games. I'd like to hear some feed back about this idea.
-Moves are never forgotten when new moves are learned. All moves learned go to a move bank. In order to be used in battle, a move must be equipped to the battle set. (Like the way Tales of Symphonia manages things for human controlled characters.) The battle set can be changed at any time except during a battle. HM moves however, can be used for their non-combat functions even if its not part of the battle set. Some of the advantages of this system would be the elimination of the nessecity of "HM slaves" and the ability to change move sets for capturing stuff, then go back to vs trainer mode sets.

Non-National Sapphire I have 202 :D

National I have something like 336.

I refuse to let anyone touch my Sapphire cart because of that, same with my Leaf Green because it has the Aurora Ticket embedded into it X)

Most of the HM for the most are among some of the worst attacks in the game. Cut is only 50 power w/ no added effects. Flash is ok, but very inaccurate. Waterfall is a shitter Surf. Whirlpool = a Water Wrap and sucks. Fly gets pwned by Thunder. Rock Smash is quite possibly the worst attack in the game. Poor excuse of an attack. Surf is obviously the best HM and a worthy attack you'll have on your Water Pokemon that specialize in Special Attacks for the most part. All the others have to go and you won't want for you final team.

Strength isnt all that bad when you just need a Normal type move that hits pretty hard, and plus its needed at some point in every Pokemon game. Unless of course you have an uber happy++ Pokemon with return or something, or Double Edge or Body Slam >_>

Magnum: I think you should be limited to 5 moves and 8 pokemon per team, that's just my stupid head thinking though

5 moves is fine (I know of a message board RPG that allows six, actually); 8 per team; that's something they can't really change. It's just TOO classic.

And CF more like 63, not 68. 252 (the max effective effort you can gain) / 4 =  63.

The whole series is too classic, and needs changing before I'll bother with it again. Played RBY competitively back in the day (and got 151 in the dex), but everything since has been a disappointment; I've bought at least one of each generation since, but haven't completed the storyline of a game since the metallic days. Pokemon was the franchise I bought a Cube for (since I didn't want to miss out on another round of 3D Pokemon as I did without an N64), but I could never get into Colosseum.

Since even Final Fantasy's getting a makeover now, I'd say Pokemon is probably the most stale franchise I've ever played.

But hey, if anyone wants to PBS for nostalgia sake, I'm up for it.

I just seriously showed up my friend at Pokemon yesterday. He was talking crap about me, so I said 'Alright, I'll fight you' so he gets in and says 'no legendaries'. I say 'Oh shit, all my non-legendaries are on XD'

I beat him with 2 pokemon that were both rare-candied all the way to lv. 100, that's how much he sucked. And he did use a legendary, he used Suicune because he meant no uber legendaries, so I just owned him with a Gardevoir with straight Psychic attacks and a Kingdra. I laughed in his face...
