We had one of these a while back and I think this will be good. This thread is for posting any good information about any Pokemon game. This thread allows for more casual conversation about Pokemon games.

I Put this on chatbox just to get wiped.

Team Intimidation:
Salamence
Arcanine
Gyarados
StarRaptor
Luxray
Tauros

Out of all the pkmn who Intimidate, I think this is the best team. Unless you prefere Stantler over Tauros. I'm sure their stats are pretty even.

Other less notable pkmn who Intimidate:
Stantler
Arbok
HitmonTop
GranBull

I can't remember if I left any out.
Would any of you be interested in running a team like this???

xD Not "****," just.  Mediocre.

I guess my response was wiped, too.

Gyara needs to be a Dragon Dancer.  Salamence needs Life Orb w/ Draco Meteor, Brick Break, Flamethrower, Outrage for wall-breaking capabilities, or Choice Specs with Draco Meteor, Dragon Pulse, Flamethrower, Hydro Pump.

Staraptor's a decent attacker.  Close Combat ftw.   Tauros just OK.  It would appreciate Choice Band to boost its max. Return.

Now Luxray is ****.

I'd really prefer if you built a team that focused more on working together than a common trait.

Your team doesnt troll 2 Mawiles. I am dissapoint.
It can troll Double Team and baton pass so 1. it doesnt die 2. an intimidate can hit something (intimidate only hits the first pokemon out if they switch their pokemon wont get intimidated, but if you baton pass 3 times their attack will be maximally low and you still have the effects of the double team)

But Ubers are cheap and broken.  Not cool to see a team of that on Wi-Fi, unless the conditions were agreed upon.

 I never use legendary pkmn. Because i didn't raise them. I use thw same 6 pkmn pretty much from the mid game to the end game. I don't swap any out for a newly aquired legendary around end game time.

That's just lame.

Ah, I thought that what you were suggesting.

Behold!
___

Here is a short, simplified explanation on EVs.  I'm sure this will help you!

  • Rattata is the 1st form of its line that excels in Speed (compared to its other stats).  This thing gives 1 Speed EV.
  • Gyarados is the 2nd form of its line.  It's renowned for its high Attack.  Therefore, it rewards 2 Attack EVs upon its defeat.
  • Alakazam is the 3rd and final form of a bra.  Its best at hitting hard with Special attacks, and fittingly provides 3 Special Attack EVs.

Knowing that a Pokemon's evolutionary stage is what determines the points it gives, it is actually smarter to beat lower-level Pokemon to accumulate more points.  That way, when your Pokemon levels up, it will gain a bigger boost.  No longer will you see the mere +3's you're used to, but you'll be treated to +5's (or more) as a standard.  Gaining at least 2 more points every level over an extended period shows major differences in your party's stats.


Say you want to make a fast, physical attacker
(like Red Gyarados).  To make Red Gyarados stronger and faster, it should face other Pokemon that are also strong or fast.  So, it's suitable for Red Gyarados to pound little Rattatas (Speed) or fiercely battle other Gyarados (Attack).

Of course, your bulky Pokemon
(Swampert, Skarmory, and even Gyarados) should train on things like Metapods or Cloysters for Defense and Clefairy or Jigglypuff for HP.

Marriland's Pokedex lists every Pokemon's EVs at the end of the "Additional Data" of its respective page.

Ya welcome.   If it helps, ignore the numbers and look at it logically.  Your Pokemon must match up to what they're fighting against.

Your Pokemon's stats grow depending on whatever you fight.  Simple.

If you go through the game normally, your stats still grow, but not in the right fields.  You're probably training your Blaziken in too much Defense, and things like that. 

"EV Training" is just a term for specified training.

o_o'''

You can just walk in the grass in Rt. 29 by New Bark Town and beat the little animals there to death.  Pretty much everything there gives you 1 Speed EV.  The exceptions are Sentret - 1 Atk, Hoothoot - 1 HP, Hopip - 1 Sp.Def.  Run from the critters that don't give the EV you want.

If you want to know other locations, just Google it.



Just to let you know, 4 EVs = 1 actual stat point.  If you beat 40 Spearows, you get +10 real Speed.  This means you can't add +1000 HP to your Chansey or something.

I understood it the 1st time I read it. But I knew right then I didn't have the time to play pkmn to that depth. Cause then what I'd start all my games over to get stronger versions of the pkmn I already have??? Naw. I'm just a casual pkmn player.

I need all my in depth strategy thinking to go towards other games.
