    I had a pinkish Ampharos in the original Gold too. Poor little thing just stayed trapped in there, un-tradeable until the cart's batteries gave out. :(

    oh yeah

    check these out

    You see lots of things, out there in the swamp at night. Some of them might even be real. But the Bugboy? That's just plain impossible.

    guys i am bad at pokemon

    i am basically pp stalling clay's excadrill with my scraggy by using a ton of healing items on him while he uses slash

    because i dont want scraggy to die

    he's too young

    (also because he has like a million attack due to moxie and getting swagged on earlier)

    FUUUUUUUUUCK CRITICAL HIT

    Ihave confidence that this will be the genertion I finally find a shiny. Only it will be on something like vanillite which I will never use. YOU HEAR ME! I refuse to use that abomination.

    So I got SoulSilver right after it came out. But then I also got DragonQuest and so never bothered to play it

    Except a week or so ago I played for three hours and then my battery died and I hadn't saved and so I said fuck it, and now I'm playing SoulSilver

    I picked Totodile and named him Mr Chomps

    I think I need to stop reading this thread before my game gets here. I'm already trying to plan my team and everything. Can't decide for the life of me which ghost is the best ghost.

    But Jellicent does have a pretty sweet 'stache.

    I think the regular single train is the fastest if your team can't beat the super train up through round 4 (mine can't :( )

    the single super train is some BULLLLSHIT

    also i get really confused when some unevolved pokemon takes half of my pokemon's health away with a not very effective stab but when i hit it with a super effective stab it doesn't go down in one hit

    fuckin' computer pokemon with perfect evs and ivs and whatnot

    at level 50, EVs/IVs/nature can swing your preferred stat up around 50-70 points.
    Look at what your stats are at

    think about how much better they'd be

    You definitely can. I PP stalled
    Spoiler:

    Something I discovered this playthrough because I didn't have a sixth pokemon until the eighth badge, the computer even tracks the PP of Wild Pokemon and will keep it the same when you capture them.

    “I’m the next president,” Greene said. “I’ll be 35 … just before November, so I was born to be president. I’m the man. I’m the man. I’m the man. Greene’s the man. I’m the man. I’m the greatest person ever. I was born to be president. I’m the man, I’m the greatest individual ever.”

    Hopefully it isn't raining in my game today. When I turned it on yesterday it was raining, and Cheren was there with a Panpour that was stronger than the fire types I just took out to start training for the Ice Gym.

    If it is still raining I am going to get out my level 40 Emolga and just rip him apart

    because

    also if I breed a Metang with a Ditto and everstone the Metang does it pass on it's nature? In an area where both pokemon have no gender I'm not sure what happens
