  1. The competitive aspect can be fun, yet there's a downside to it as well. You're definitely right in the sense that there are a great deal of pokemon that are considered 'entirely useless'. There's even a site that has dedicated itself to determining what tier a pokemon belongs on in terms of usefulness. Go on to www.serebii.net to learn about basic mechanics of battles, stats, etc. If you're going to play the game for the single player, by all means, pick up the handheld. If you're going to play competitively, go and pick up the pokemon online application from www.pokemon-online.eu. It's basically an program that lets you play against other players with any pokemon you wish, with all the specifications that you want.
  2. If any of you have not heard, and are interested, I'm organizing a pokemon tourney via an application called Pokemon Online. The client can be found here: www.pokemon-online.eu It's really simple to set up, self-explanatory, and appears to be more or less stable. The mechanics of the application seem accurate to the handheld games. The best part is, you don't have to spend dozens of hours building teams to exact specifications. If you're interested, just sign up on the thread on my signature below.
  3. Sounds good, I'm up for testing out Pokemon Online, I already installed it.

  4. If you have the time today, would you mind helping me test out a few of the servers available for pokemon online?

  5. A completely illegitimate parent can have a completely legitimate child, after all.
  6. And here I thought you would be an applicant for the tourney I'm setting up :). In any case, I see that you have good taste.

  7. I have no idea who you are but I would just like to say that your username is fantastic. I'm not sure if someone already has it, but if there is a Conan the Librarian here, you two need to get into a heated image-post thread at some point.

  8. Hey man! Pretty good, I just can't figure out what 3 extra pokemon I should have as backup. Any suggestions?

  9. How's your team coming along? Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

  10. BTW, I'll be on IRC so we can coordinate as needed (if needed).

  11. It's for this very reason that I'm considering opting for Pokemon Online once they set up Gen 5 data. It's too much a pain to set up competitive play otherwise.
  12. Try to keep the input to the tournament thread I made in the social group, please. Otherwise it's going to get buried within other random pokemon commentary.
  13. I've gone ahead and did what I could about it. Lots of rules to be agreed upon and clarified, SO I NEED INPUT . For any who are interested in an organized tournament, please click on the Pokemon Tournament link in my signature, sign up, and give us your thoughts on the matter.
  14. I've just by-passed what could have been rage-worthy. Picture this: To catch a Lapras in White or Black you have to land on bubbling water while surfing (the equivalent to shaking grass). To have one of these waters come up is fairly uncommon, normally requiring you to get repels and surf until one pops up. The pokemon itself only spawns 5 percent of the time in these rare bubble spawns. After getting nothing but basculin from these bubble patches, I finally track a Lapras down. After paralyzing her, I then switch over to a pokemon that uses false swipe. The suicidal little shit decides to cast perish song after my first false swipe. So I have 3 turns to throw a ball before she kills herself. It kept breaking out until the perish song countdown was at 0, where it finally gives in, and allows me to capture it. I'm going to feed her bitter herbs and throw her into daycare center, never to be released. Let's see her use that song again....
