Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

HA! HOPE YOU HAVE BURN HEALS!

Blaine is the best gym leader in all the pokemon games, ever. He was the second-last gym leader in the Kanto region, and is a quiz master and fire pokemon expert. Since he was such a badass Giovanni burned down his gym, because Giovanni is a dick who loves irony.

It's okay Blaine, your spirit burns on, just like your pokemon!

    Pffft. If you needed Burn Heals, you were doing it wrong. I took out his Pokemon before he could even use any burning moves.

    I made that thread when the old thread was already closed, thanks. I know how to read.

    I meant that the OP/Thread title was a place holder till I made a better one.

    Also I didn't care about being first, I just wanted to keep the discussion open.

    Its not important, I'm just annoyed because that's the third time I've had a thread closed on me and I've seen way worse OPs in SE.

    And burns really hurt and if you don't heal your pokemon you are a cruel bastard.

    But water moves are super effective, which means that they were just normally effective.

    So what's the difference with Pokemon Platinum? Just extra Pokemon that nobody cares about?

    The first 150 were the best. Anything else afterwards wasn't good.

    Hey Campion, if you still need that male Meowth I've got a few kicking around. I also have doubles of dittos of most of the main natures if you wanted one of them to simplify breeding things a bit.

    Yeah. In the best decision they've made in a while, they stopped making Flash an HM and throwing in a single cave where it was necessary.

    They also made a new HM called Defog which is basically the same fucking thing.

    I guess burn happened so rarely and the game was so easy it never occurred to me that attack dropped. Was it just physical attack or did it also affect special?

    If its just physical yeah no way I would notice, who uses lame pokemans like Taurus or Rhydon anyhow?

    Dublo, the art style and pokemon designs in Diamond/Pearl manage to harken-back to the original games extremely-well. Far better, I think, than the gold/silver or ruby/sapphire generation in my opinion.

    It's also noticeably more-difficult than previous incarnations, largely because a lot of gym leaders diversify their lineup so that it's still theme-appropriate, yet spamming a single move won't work.

    Sinnoh has a lot of water and earth types but there's a serious shortage of fire around, which is a very subtle but appreciated nod towards the pokemon eco-system.

    I hope the next game takes place in an exotic locale like a desert or mountain range.

    I want a space colony pokemon game. Traveling around to different satellite cities, encountering alien pokemon, that would be sweet.
