    The bad parts of playing Pokemon

    EVs and IVs exist in RBY, you just can't see them. EV training is a lot faster than it used to be now that we have hordes. I can train 10 pokes in all 6 stats in 2 days. Natures are a big part of determining a pokemons purpose or particular affinity compared to others of it species, like EVs and IVs. If we got rid of those, why not get rid of every species of Pokemon except one? The variety is what makes it good. I do think it would be cool if 2 parents who had the same nature could make a baby with that nature without an everstone, like IV passing, but thats all i think should be changed. Egg moves are a big part of making the pokemon experience immersive, making you feel like youre living in a pokemon world. You can only get, say, Spikes on Roselia, if you breed it with Cacnea who can learn that move. There's no reason Roselia by itself should be able to set out spikes. Z Moves arent in this game Battling is the endgame, that is, you do everything else in the game to prepare for it. If you could battle with people who have been playing for a long time, immediately, it would be no fun and there would be no reason to play for a long time. Its more rewarding to battle with pokemon you have bred with egg moves and good IVs and nature, and trained their EVs. Ive spent like 10 minutes typing this when i could have been EVing 3 pokes at once. Sayonara

    Advanced EV Guide

    Should I expand this to general pokemon building; natures and what IVs are most important?

    Advanced EV Guide

    The purpose of this guide is to help players decide exactly what EVs they want on their pokemon, not where to EV them. This guide is intended for a lvl 50 metagame ("comp") only. Little Cup is completely different because you can get to a pokemon's max stat without full EV investment. Use this to confirm what your stats will be before you actually train your hard-earned breeds. It's also a good idea to decide what Pokemon you will have on your final team and their natures and moves before starting any breeding and training. You can use this to figure things out before you invest time and money. Speed IVs: odds & evens bonus w natures damage calcs: Super Ultra Mega Expert Mode I think this is almost done, someone please confirm/check my math Need to add: 30 is same as 31 etc in an uninvested stat Budget breeding short guide stealth rocks damage minimize: make sure hp is not divisible by 8; https://www.smogon.com/smog/issue2/saving_hp2

    Synchronoise should be nerfed, is bugged

    It's not allowed in official tournament play because of this, but it's pretty useful for getting through the story

    What's your fav pokemon

    When i first discovered pokemon my favorite was charmander. As i grew and matured, i imagined it growing too, and evolving into Charmeleon and Charizard. But no mega evolutions. If i have to pick a non-starter, lairon.

    Delete a save file?

    I dont think you can delete save files. You should be able to go to a different region as soon as you reach the port city in each of them (Vermilion, Slateport, and the huge 3-D one).

    Ultility Pokemon Guide

    Farfetch'd learns false swipe and can be tutored yawn (and taught fly), i use it as my catcher. psst you dont have flame body on your flame body pokemon and dont forget about octillery with suction cups (and why it's useful). Nice guide, this was missing before. Maybe you could go into a bit more detail about why the things towards the end of your list are useful. I've got more constructive criticism if youre open to it

    what's up with this

    you have to upload the screenshot to the internet. Try something like Imgur.

    New players looking for info.

    Yep. High damage, good coverage, fast, some can set up (ex: Swords dance) to do more damage or gain more defense. Walls cant do much damage on their own but can take a lot of hits, and heal health or status, sometimes on other members of their team (moves like wish and heal bell). An example of this would be Chansey. They basically slow an enemy's momentum and force them to switch. They are really only used in PvP where they are no fun to face, and you would probably be better off picking something with a little higher damage output for your story team.

    New players looking for info.

    You can get thunderbolt TM (and others) from the Vermilion poke mart, same way with all other cities and their corresponding gyms (Earthquake in Viridian City, for example). There are a few guides in the Guide Tavern you will find useful (Kanto walkthrough is in Work In Progress Guides but still should help a lot.) You can really use any pokemon you want, but you might find something in Guide Tavern to help you build a well rounded team. (sweepers, tanks, walls, etc) Good luck!

    Box Choice Item

    bumping cause i was about to suggest this It shouldnt even be an item, it should be automatic that everyone can choose to designate a box for caught pokes to go to. Thats how it was in the last core games i played. With the breeding system the way it is, Im surprised this hasnt been implemented/suggested more yet.
