so i wanted to ask this for a while

what are considered good skill for a mon? so far everything seems to be useless unless it delays the opponent once in a blue moon or trigger 100% of times like power of 4
>Because I'm at least somewhat of a moralfag
How do i get to my savedata file, help?
Depends, really.
I'd say right now the best overall skills in the game are Crowd Control and Power of 4+. Both of them have high activation rates and increase damage by a huge ammount.
Other skills are also good but more situational (Burn/Pyre are excellent for a M-Blaziken team and worthless for others, for example). Skills like Eject/Barrier Bash are great/uesless depending on the stage as well.
This game is incredibly Jewish with its energy

>But machamps arms grow from a mutation

Yes. A mutation caused by Graveler particles left over in the link cables.

In all seriousness though;
Machamp and Golem are a visual indication of an early conception of the implementation of the mainline games fusion concept manifestation (there is also the situation with Bill becoming part pokemon, another early indication of later fusion implementation —Karrablast, Shelmet and the Unova dragons are later indications of this potential future development. Outside of the games, in the manga and anime, a desire has been shown to implement fusions from the get go.)

Machamp and Golem, aesthetically speaking, are fusions of Graveler and Machoke. It's a visual fact. Your puny head cannon is trapped and misfiring within the confines of nonsensical game science. It is also incomplete. What of Gengar, Politoed, Magmortar and Electivire? Meanwhile, my true deepest lore strides gallant across real world design and development truths.

>Scyther completely (and its XY animations
Nonsense. Poorly animated 3D model mechanics are not ample evidence to support the claims of your lowly brain farts although I do agree with what you are saying, I find it necessary to lay you down and fuck you like the cur your are. In my experience Sceptile, for instance, often fails to animate at all when certain moves are used—should we take this lazy programming as indication that Sceptile is an adept psychic who needn't move a muscle to attack its foes? Surely not. Likewise, should we believe that no flying pokemon feet ever touch the floor simply because of another bad design choice on behalf the developers? I say nay. Nay.
>muh reptilian traits
An underlying theme of gen I mons. See schyther, kangaskhan and the nidos who develop reptilian traits despite starting of or being based from somethin else

>muh sudden change
Happens in a lot of evolutionary lines. Blastoise suddenly develops canons. Magikarp changes to an aquatic serpent. Exeggcute turns into a coconut tree.

What's next? Conk got his pillars from a Boldore?

I've always wanted a molten style Golem, but that typing would destroy any possible viability. I'd rather stay Rock/Ground but have a Fire-based ability;

Even though I like honchkrow this did always annoy me. Hell, murkrow's tail even mimics riding a broom stick.
Since gen 2 I always thought that Murkrow resembled a gangster, because in Crystal dex (and the anime) shows that it likes to find and steal shining objects (a reference to money, maybe?)
Mismagius because it actually has a movepool and a decent ability

ITT: unpopular opinions

I agree, something that's missing from Gen 6 is cameos from other characters even if it's just something unimportant. The only one has been Looker and while that's fun and all throwing in random Gym Leaders is a good way to make the world feel connected.
Why do you and others think that the reason that people are upset about Lucario is because they have a specific other mon in mind that should be getting just as much attention? I'm just tired of them shoehorning the same mon over and over again in most games and constantly hearing about how great it is.
>implying steven isn't gay
Highly agree. Though the last two gens have improved on that matter.

[citation needed]

You consider Shinjoh ruins to be part of Sinnoh do you?

Both gen 6 games are good, they are just too dissapointing and inferior to the previous games, but they arent bad.

Why is it bad to use legendaries on your team?
5 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I have no problem with weaker Legendaries being used anywhere, hell I use Kyurem, Zygarde, and Terrakion a lot. It's just when people use absurd shit like Mega Rayquaza and Xerneas that puts me off.
I'm in the same boat as this Anon
It triggers me when people bitch about using legendaries.

using them in single player? noob, plays the game on easy mode
using them in multi player? noob, relies on raw power rather than strategy

My favorite pokemon is a legendary, I paid actual money to wreck shit using what I want, the game gives me this option and a bunch of dumbasses will not stop me from doing it

If a kid whips out uber weather trio on me on battle spot, it's all fine, I can just go for a rated battle if I don't want to see this shit or even flick the wi-fi switch over forfeiting if I am a dork

>mfw Celebi is banned meanwhile people can freely use M-Kanga and M-Mence
I just don't like them because in order to use them you have to do one of the following:
A) Use hacked mons
B) SR for potentially days on end until you get the IVs+Nature you need, which even with a synchronizer and the 3 IVs they give you
C) Be at a competitive disadvantage to the people who DO do one of the above

Since gamefreak tells us we can't do A), we are left with B) and C), both of which give an unfair advantage to cheaters* (C for the obvious disadvantage, and B because the time you are using SRing could instead actually be used getting gud).

And if I decide after all my SRing I that modest isn't working out, and I should have gone with Timid? Well then I am SoL unless I want to run through the entire game again.

While breeding has a slightly similar problem, modern breeding mechanics have made the process much quicker and the time lost isn't that much. I can breed a team in about a day and if I need to make changes to it, it doesn't take too much longer to get a new 5IVers with the new nature I decided I needed.

For using legendaries in completion to be fair, GF really needs to either allow hacks (so long as they are not illegal moves/stats that is), remove IVs all together, or give us some method of manipulating legendary IVs and natures (either through normal breeding or an NPC of some sort). Until then, allowing them in completion rewards cheating, which is why I am against allowing them.
