Show the other moves coward! It also gets thunderpunch which in gen 2 is Special
90% of Gen 2 Pokemon are pure garbage
Movepools sucked balls before gen IV, nothing new.
Goldenrod is such a good place for Pokemon who need moves. Fire Blast, Thunder and Blizzard in Game Corner. Return, Thunderpunch, Ice Punch and Fire Punch in Mart. Dig in nearby area.

Flame Wheel + Thunderpunch
Done, slap EQ on it later and you get perfect coverage.

It sucks but Heracross has a massive Attack anyway so it can just spam Strength (and later EQ).

Coil + Leaf Blade + Leech Seed + Return
It's more viable than you think.

>You're not allowed to use multiple pokimans
I don't know if I'm alone with this but for me half the fun about playing Gens I and II is trying to come up with decent movesets for the Mons and making sure that my team members don't fight over the same TMs (this is also the case with Gens III and IV). For Gen II starters I'd go with something like this:

>Razor Leaf / Earthquake / Body Slam / Synthesis
>Flamethrower / Thunderpunch / Earthquake / [Return / Quick Attack / Dynamicpunch]
Surf / Ice Punch / Earthquake / Return

Typhlosion's base 84 Attack is perfectly fine for in-game so it can use physical coverage moves without any problems. Feraligatr's base 79 Sp Attack as its main offensive stat is pretty sad but it can still work (Lanturn for example is even weaker and Mantine's Sp Attack is just one point higher). All of the starters are usable tho and can put in a lot of work in-game.'

All bending started out as energybending
Fire is the one most in touch with that idea, as fire is energy
The other elements are too static and benders have no experience with controlling them like firebenders do, that's what the whole episode where Aang burned Katara was about
Lightning is refined energy in the form of electrons
Only firebenders can do it as a result

>>I'd still say it's dumb that Amon turns out to be a Waterbender using Bloodbending, instead of Energybending
Agreed. Looking back at Korra, even though it had a lot of flaws(like forced romance), I think the biggest one for me was it being episodic. Of course, this was actually because the writers really believed Korra wouldn't pick up and was originally intended to be a mini-series, but I guess they were caught off guard when Nickelodeon gave them the green light to make more seasons.
I think Vaatu should've been the series main villain, considering he's the ultimate evil and the reason the Avatar exists in the first place.
Imagine if he was connected to every villain, like say, he was the one who gave Amon the ability to energybend. He is what the Red Lotus worship, and he was the one who subtly corrupted Kuvira into becoming a tyrant.
>e was the one who gave Amon the ability to energybend. He is what the Red Lotus worship, and he was the one who subtly corrupted Kuvira into becoming a tyrant.
That's just shitty writing desu. Having a big bad behind the scenes renders the other villains useless and it makes everything so cliche. If you want to have them interconnected at least give each villain their own agency. I've always ignored Vaatu when thinking of how this show could've been better but for the sake of the argument I guess he could fit somewhere at the end. Maybe foreshadow harmonic convergence with new airbenders and spirits showing up instead of having it cause them by being opened, and add an element of mystery that builds up to him as the group travels the world to find answers? That also fixes the lack of worldly adventures the series was sorely lacking.

>What is a Nuzlocke?
Nuzlockes have two rules - 1) First encounter in an area is your only capture, faint or don't like it? tough shit 2) If a Pokémon faints, it's permaboxed or released.Other rules can be added - most people, for instance, nickname all pokemon or play with a dupes clause because they're weak ass trainers who don't know the joy of a raticate squad. More info on additional rules and variants below.

>Is [insert thing here] acceptable?
You can do whatever you want. As long as it follows the two rules, it's a Nuzlocke. Feel free to add additional challenge if you want. It's your game.

>Is [game/romhack] hard?
Probably. There's a ranking list of mainline games below. Most romhacks will be as hard or (likely) harder than that, some are borderline impossible.

I swear, that kid with the Butterfree north of Vermilion always manages to down at least one of my Pokemon with Sleep Powder and Confusion. This time it was Enoch, which ended up being a pretty severe blow right before Lt. Surge. Feels pretty bad that I'm not getting the chance to use Golem any time soon.

Wanting to conserve my Diglett, I ended up improvising a bit and gave the Dig TM to Mike. I'm... not sure I'd recommend that. While he's shaping up to be an excellent force against anything weaker or slower, when I brought him up against Raichu, he only lived through a single Thunderbolt by the skin of his teeth. It seems that you really have to bring a resistance or immunity along with you if you don't want any deaths - fortunately Nadja was there to fill that role.

I also grabbed the Old Rod and a Magikarp around here, because why not. Gyarados is a fun Pokemon to have around, but I'm definitely thinking of throwing it back in the box at some point so I can take advantage of it in future games.

just got to mossdep, if i can catch a ghost type will definetely add to the team to face off tate & liz
current team, just two deaths until now(Fiona the Linoone and Boombox the Loudred)
I do this as well

Banning every pokemon used doesnt work. I tried. By FRLG unless you were super strict with your captures, it gets really dicey
Lilycove, not mossdep, I always confuse those two
For me, if it's a hall of famer it cannot be used futhermore, even if it fainted during the E4
I also cannot use any pre-evolution form of any hall of famer unless it has a different final evolution that is not registered yet(i.e slowbro/slowking).
If a NFE becomes a HF, I can utilize it in the subsequent runs but can only register as a different evolution stage in the HF.

Although I'm quite unsure about LGPE myself, and my opinions towards it are getting less and less positive each day, but doesn't it seem a tad unfair to blindly screech about it before actually fucking playing it? Like I'm sure even after releasd you fucks will cherrypick one or two screenshots to shitpost about without bothering to look up gameplay or some shit.

Also the "KANTOOO" and "OH NO NO NO" memes are gettin' pretty stale.

Fair enough.
Part of me wants to say that they're just trailers and you can't judge the quality of an entire game from a couple trailers.
But another agrees with you, the trailers really don't have anything to offer. I mean they're showing 5 year old Megas like they're new.

>doesn't it seem a tad unfair to blindly screech about it before actually fucking playing it?

So you need to spend money on a game in order to judge whether it's worth your money or not?
Anyway, the game was confirmed for garbage the instant the 1:1 copypaste of the GameBoy map was revealed
>before actually fucking playing it?
Why? It's a reimagining of a game we've already played. We almost certainly know everything the game has to offer already. And the game is so basic there's functionally no difference between playing it and watching a video of someone else play it. You literally cannot use the "it's not out" argument anymore.
>It's a reimagining of a game we've already played.

No, it's a revamp
A reimagining would have the map updated to the Switch capabilities (bigger cities, more organic routes...etc)

Nvm I found it. Prime numbers refer to which corner you turn. To get to the center you need to turn on the 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 7th corners. This works no matter where you start.
Explain the prime number trick, you mean?
This is actually the way to navigate the ruins as quickly as possible so you can reach the Relic Crown: no matter which of the four entrances to the ruins you take or which floor you're on, if you count every time the path branches into multiple directions, you're always supposed to change direction at the prime numbers and keep going straight at every other fork, and that gets you to the center and the Relic Crown without fail. Of course you'll have to deviate from this to get every item, but since you have a limited step counter and it's hard to reach the fourth floor/the Relic Crown (which is the most valuable item there) by wandering aimlessly, it's a really cool trick to know that we only learned from the text describing it (and a really genius way of mapping the ruins!) that saves the effort of trial and error or struggling to figure out the shortest path by looking at the whole, confusing map.
(Be aware that you should reset your count every time you go to another floor! For example, it's the second, third, fifth and seventh on the first floor and then the second, third, fifth and seventh on the second floor, not the second, third, fifth, seventh, eleventh, thirteenth, et cetera in total.)
I feel like the Abyssal Ruins could have been the perfect start to underwater routes becoming a thing, and were the perfect representation of how an underwater dungeon would be since it was so creative. Minus the getting pushed out of the ruins automatically thing.
This is the most important thing to me and why USUM was the first mainline pokemon games I didn't buy - they added what, like a few new routes and towns if that? All I want from a new Pokémon game is comfy and fun exploration and it seems to get worse each game

>They should of waited releasing them at the second "Pokemon is for losers and kids" phase
Kind of this desu
I grew up with gen 1 and 2 as a kid, so I experienced the different generations at various phases of my life. I was starting to grow out of pokemon during the second half of gen 3 when emerald was released and I hit my teens. I got back into briefly in high school when platinum came out and a couple of my friends were playing it during lunch. By the time gen 5 came out, I had gotten over my initial nostalgia with the franchise and was bored of the whole thing, so black felt kind of stale, even with the new stuff they were trying.
When Gen 6 came out I was finally in my 20s so I could accept that I did in fact enjoy pokemon and was able to come back to the series with a new found appreciation. I wouldn't be surprised if other people my age went through similar phases, which would explain the seeming distaste for it despite it not being objectively worse in any way.
That and the post game was pretty shit. I think even after black came out I would still go back to platinum just to mess around in the battle frontier and work on filling out the pokedex. Unova felt emptier than Sinnoh to me.
There was something about Gen 5 when it was coming out
I just didn't care for it and I think it was all of the trailers showing the big empty city and the boring box art but I picked it up 8 months after release and I was completely wrong and then Black 2 made me love the series with all of my heart again and I'd only ever browsed /v/ and other boards but started coming here to lurk
Kek then Gen 6 happened and it's been a shit show ever since
I feel bad I didn't support Black on release
That’s a lot like me anon. I got ruby and played it, grew older, skipped emerald and Kanto remakes. I was 20 and saw soul silver out, so I got it because I loved johto. Quit that for a while after I accidentally ko’d a shiny quagsire, but that’s a tale for another thread. Gen 6 came out, and I worked nights. Saw friends waiting for the midnight release and bought Y to enjoy Pokémon with friends like I did as a kid. That might have affected how I viewed gen 5 when I picked it up to play, since most of the mons were known to me from XY. I still love unova, though. Black and white are some of my favorite games. Some designs are aweful, but I can tell effort when in and I really enjoy it.

So what does Japan think of this shit? Are they having the same reaction we are?

Huge thanks to the translator anon.
>lowest pre-orders for a Pokemon game ever
The shill reply is "kids don't preorder".
The sensible reply to the shill reply is "kids don't go on the Internet and talk about how much they like the game either, so you don't actually know that Japanese children are excited for the game.

There, saved us a couple posts.

>You can make pretty games using chibi graphics, but just look at Jesse and James, their faces are flat and unsettling. The graphics and battle animations are far worse than Battle Revolution's were. Masuda's comments just sound like an excuse for laziness.

Holy shit, I thought I was the only one who thought BR looked a hell of a lot better than Let's Go.....fucking based japs man
Anyone with eyes can tell BR looked better, resolution aside. The animations especially.

I wish the series stayed 2D if this is what they would have come up with. There are no benefits to the game being in 3D in the approach they are taking with these games, especially LGPE. 3D allows free camera movement and in-depth level design, as well as more detailed expression when it comes to animation, that's when it outclasses 2D. Here they're just making a 3D game like it's still a 2D game limited by GB hardware for all intents and purposes.
