>Johto ghost gym
>There isn't a single trainer who uses the only ghost type introduced in gen 2
>>
that's because YOU are misdreavus
>>
If someone had Misdreavus that would have spoiled the fact that it exists.
>>
>>34388903
Yeah
What's Acerola?
>>
>Johto gym
>Using Johto Pokemon at all
>>
>>34388911
Also you.
>>
reminder that kanto leaders use more gen 2 than the johto leaders
>>
>flying gym
no Noctowl and Hoothoots, literally zero excuse
>bug gym
strongest shitter is a Scyther, not an Ariados/Ledian or Heracross (you can get one once you get Headbutt at Ilex forest)
>normal gym
Whitney does it right
>ghost gym
no Misdreavus
>fighting gym
Primeape and Poliwrath instead of Hitmontop
>steel gym
Jasmine does it right
>ice gym
Pryce does it right
>dragon gym
Clair does it right
>>
>>34388906
This is the best excuse you could pull out of your ass?
>>
Thing is, they weren't Johto Pokemon and Kanto Pokemon. The Gen 2 Pokemon were supposed to be newly-discovered rare things in a world where there had previously only been 151 of the critters known. It was a different philosophy than what they went from Gen 3 on.
>>
>>34388911
Noise.
>>
>>34389241
It was a time before internet could spoil everything for you,so lategame secret mons were good but they wouldn't work now,with the internet spoiling us of them unless of course you don't watch a single new about the game and won't check any info online
>>
>>34389188
>Jasmine does it right
No she doesn't.
>type introduced in Gen II
>still uses more Gen I Pokemon than Gen II
>only uses a Gen II Pokemon because it evolved from a Gen I Pokemon
She should've had a Forretress and a Skarmory.
>>
>>34389241
He's not wrong though. When you came back on the second tour you wouldn't have gotten a nice surprise of new pure ghost pokemon. Though on the other side, it's probably worth asking why gamefreak didn't just include more new ghost pokemon if they wanted to have a ghost gym that generation. Then we could have seen new pokemon on the first and second trip to the gym.

second tour? what?
>>
>>34389514
There's no gym rematch feature in GSC. HGSS onlyfgags disgust me.
>>
>>34388915
The FUCK is a Johto Pokemon
>>
>>34389298
Noise doesn't throw Pokéballs.

how about dragons
>make the last gym a dragon gym
>the champion is also a dragon trainer
>however there's still only 2 fully evolved dragons, kingdra and dragonite
>clair has 3 dragonairs, lance has 3 dragonites
>several trainers in clair's gym use seadra, which isn't even a dragon type
>>
>>34389550
>>34389694
He's talking about Kanto.
>>
Gen 1
>only 3 ghost types, all a part of the same line
> only 3 dragon types, all a part of the same line

Gen 2
>introduce only ONE more ghost and ONE more dragon

Literally what the hell were they thinking? Hoenn fixes everything though. Several new ghost types, dragon types, plus steel and dark are expanded. And only 2 of the new Pokemon had any relation to old mons
>>
>>34389298
Is that a TWEWY reference?
>>
>>34390193
No it's a Pokemon reference.
>>
>>34388893
Johto is a joke
>>
>>34390057
but misdreavus is mt silver only
>>
>>34388906

Best post
>>
>>34391661
You think switch is getting hacked next year? Ok bud
>>
>>34389289
Except for Ho-oh, Lugia, and the beasts, which are all featured in Johto's classical lore
>>
>>34391707
"known"
>>
>>34388906

Because not being able to catch one literally until the last area of the game was a great idea.
>>
>>34391714
>featured in local legends and actively sought after
>not "known"
>>
>>34389289
That's how it was marketed but it never really felt like that in-game.
>>
>>34391732
So according to you, the Yeti, Chupacabra and the Loch Ness Monster are all known?
>>
>>34391739
People actually contacted Ho-oh and Lugia on top of the Ecruteak towers, anon
>>
>>34388893
Calm down faggot they did it the right way.
>>
>>34389241
He's not lying. I remember how even strategy guides weren't allowed to reveal the new Pokemon at first. Nintendo really wanted a lot of the new Pokemon to be secret for some reason
>>
>>34389298
Stop posting on 4chan, Nanu. Go back to being a Kahuna.
>>
>>34391727
Yeah. Imagine if the final dungeon after going through two regions had no new and desirable Pokémon whatsoever and it had just been Golbat, Onix, Graveler and Ursaring/Donphan. Would've been a disaster.
>>
>>34391658
People can still dump Switch models bud. Happened with ARMS.
>>
>Falkner
Pidgey, Pidgeotto
>No Hoothoot/Noctowl

>Bugsy
Metapod, Kakuna, Scyther
>No Ledyba/Ledian, no Spinarak/Ariados

>Whitney
Clefairy, Miltank

>Morty
Ghastly, Haunter, Gengar, Haunter
>No Misdreavus

>Chuck
Primeape, Poliwrath
>No Hitmontop (This one is most baffling to me.)

>Jasmine
Magnemite, Magnemite, Steelix

>Pryce
Seel, Dewgong, Piloswine

>Clair
Dragonair, Dragonair, Kingdra

Out of the 22 Pokemon the Johto Gym Leaders use in total, only 4 are new Pokemon. 5 when counting Magnemite due to the steel type.

Just accept it. Johto Gyms were terrible.
>>
>>34394057
clair has 3 dragonairs not 2
>>
>>34391683
what's wrong with it getting hacked?
>>
>>34389321
>so lategame secret mons were good
No anon, they're never good unless they're legendaries. First and foremost you should show the new pokemon.
>>
>>34388893
I'm just not seeing the problem here.

Perhaps /vp/ is autistic?
>>
>>34393148
Wasn't that what Larvitar was for?
>>
>>34391658
Don't worry, the trailers will spoil everything for you. Besides, it's your own fault for looking at the leaks.
>>
>>34390093
Yeah but you still had shit like Phoebe and Glacia using dupes of the same Pokemon.
>>
>>34394143
Nothing, he’s an angry moralfag/breedercuck,
>>
Was I the only who couldn't figure out how to navigate this hell hole? I was legitimately stuck in the front of Mortys gym for months when I was avkid.

It got so bad to the point where my starter was in its 40s and already caught an Entei and Raikou. Because I gave up trying and just started to battle trainers, and wild Mons.
>>
>>34394143
Nothing its just not going to happen before Pokemon comes out.

Captcha: extra Nintendo
>>
>>34394762
Lmao yeah apparently!
>>
>>34394762
lol that 'puzzle' is so simple
>>
>>34394982
Maybe not piracy but switch datamining is already a thing
>>34393961
>>
>>34393148
there's larvitar in there, a pseudo-legendary

misdreavus is no longer relevant at that point in the game, it's supposed to be an early game shitmon but you don't get it until the very end of the game
>>
>>34389499
Jasmine recently transitioned to a Steel Gym, that's why her gym still has a Rock theme. Probably got tired of getting fucked by Sailors or any kid with a Good Rod.
>>
>>34389321
>>34389514
>let's give players less options to choose from in order to keep it a secret
>also it's at the end of the game where it's barely usable
