    does this mean it's not good or not fun

    It's awesome, but really boring, 'cos it basically just makes battles into a random chance of your pokemon actually doing anything this turn. Similar deal with Serene Grace Togekiss, but Prankster makes it even easier to set up with very little your opponent can do to stop it.

    Oh, okay, cool! I'll wait for the challenger rules before moving forward, see if I broke anything else.

    Gives me some time to plan a new team when I inevitably lose my next challenge.

    Okay, so on the GTS, you have the option to filter out "Special" pokemon, which removes all the requests for Xerneas/Yvetal/Zygarde/Mewtwo. Which is awesome!

    But it leaves in the Birds.

    In online formats that ban legendaries (I think I heard this was a thing?), would they still be allowed?

    I know that just being legendary doesn't necessarily make a Pokemon good, but it's still weird to me. What determines a "special" pokemon?

    The ground gym is bred, I just need to ev train them and level them. I'm not really feeling the current setup I have for my gym so I may switch things around a bit when bank comes out. I need to do some serious BP grinding though

    Legendaries = special on the GTS.

    Also, people dont get that you cant get certain pokes till Christmas when the Bank opens. Stop asking for a mew for your vivillon.

    I looked up the VGC banlist, which I assume would have similar rules to any in-game online format that would ban legends, and it seems like the birds are OK. It seems like legendary birds and their gens equivalents are cool.

    So it's kosher to use my Articuno!

    most legendaries are in uber tier but the birds are probably okay

    i'm not going to use any of the four musketeers but that's mostly because i think they are super lame

  • SkulloSkullo Registered User regular

    Yeah, I know legendary doesn't automatically make something awesome. I was mostly intrigued by them not being considered 'special' despite their legendary status. And I figured the 'no legendaries' ban from tournaments extended to anything legendary, but apparently not.

    Which is cool, because I don't think Articuno is going to be in Ubers any time soon, and I'd like to use the timid, good IV one I caught and trained up.

    Third post but

    The way my team fares in the battlenoun (i.e. team bugs) is making me a bit nervous. Is the battlenoun an accurate representation of what will happen to my babies? I guess I could go online and find out...

    battle noun will often cater parts of teams specifically to counter you. Liek when i'm using my dragon team sharkpedo with speed boost and ice fang shows up a lot.

    Also it legit cheats after you get a ways in. Probability goes out the window, items activate every turn, and all their moves have 100% accuracy. Like so



    One thing that really aggravates me about battle noun is that it's the only way to get a Lansat berry (that boosts crit chance when on low health). That not necessarily a great berry, but to get it you have to win 100 battles in a row in the maison, which I'm pretty sure is actually impossible.

    Haha, I literally just ran into that Sheer Cold Walrein. She also had a Contrary Serperior :rotate: To be fair, that sort of silly buggers didn't show up til after I got my 50 win streak for 244 points and a monument in the maison, woo! Scizor/Garchomp/Gengar, bringing the pain since Gen 4 (though notably, critical lack of water resist).

    There should be a Super Super Battle tier that unlocks after 50 wins, shit gets stupid tense once you're up against Veterans fielding Latis and other base 600s.

    The BF became that guy this morning. He put one of the ultra rare Vivillon on the GTS asking for a Yvetal, and somebody snatched it up in less than one minute.

    He put another super rare one on for an extra Xerneas for me. We are both kind of crazy about needing to actually have the pokemon in our box and not just the dex entry.

    I've been putting up Kanto starters to see if anyone will bite for a Xerneas or Yvetal, then I'm going to turn around and trade that for some of the more ridiculous requests on the GTS.

    Also, how does he have a super rare Vivillion? If you breed them, do they keep the parents color?

    do you remember what type he traded away? I would also like to have all of them in my box, not just my dex, so I would look into doing something similar.

    Sadly, no. They will only become the pattern based on your region on the first save. For the two of us, that is the ultra common High Plains pattern.

    He has three complete sets of the Vivillon due to 1) Obsessive scouring of the GTS, and 2) going to various groups on facebook (like Pokemon Hawaii) and asking if anybody would be willing to trade that way.
