    Ghost is also a much better attacking type than Poison, as Speed Racer I'm sure noticed this battle. It's only supereffective against ONE TYPE, in exchange for three resists and an immunity.

    Sludge Bomb is cool as a STAB move I guess but I don't use it on my SpecsGar in favor of a Shadow Ball/Thunderbolt/Focus Blast/Energy Ball set.

    You should never have it over Shadow Ball, if you want to use it replace Energy Ball or Thunderbolt.

    Well, Sludge Bomb can poison opponents. While Shadow Ball lowers their special defense, which doesn't help if they switch.

    Just my two cents. Shadow Ball is probably more worth it because of its power.

    isn't sludge bomb base 90 to shadow ball's 80? As dingus said, ghost is just the better attacking type.

    Hey, I had not battled in a month and Sludge Bomb is not really a move I use very often.

    Also, I had forgotten about the typing. Oops, very important matter.

    But think of the poisoning! Yeah, doesn't matter too much.

    First bio-devil contender - 18 24 23 15 30 30~

    Duskull is an easier-type breeding project since attack, def, and sp def can all fluctuate at level 1.

    Well, going with that first one - there's only one other decent one, 18 4 25 01 30 31. This would make an ok parent at least, it is sassy and male. Let me know if there's any takers, also this reminds me of ink's coming bronzor.

    Sure. So the Lileep will be it. Let me get my stuff.

    It's male

    The movie was GROSS.

    I saw it when on a trip at a hotel, when they had nothing else on TV and was too early to go out.

    Thanks, Blue!

    Well, I was worried that it wouldn't happen, but we pulled it off! The original nickname was duskull, the thing the guy says is kind of entertaining. The same as it was, but somehow vastly superior.

    Good times with routers!

    Ok, so I get to pick two from the punches. Fire and Thunder and I can't hurt ground. Fire and Ice and I can't hurt water. Thunder and Ice and oh lookit me it's boltbeam.
    Technically I could go with return or earthquake or a ghosty move as well. Choices!

    Also I have now passed the 500 hour mark, and am one pokemon away from having completed a full box of trained pokemans! How exciting?

    Seems wrong. Boltbeam is for special attackers! Punching is for captain falcon.

    Starmie learns all its good moves via tm/hm and you evolve it with a water stone - I think mine is like level 13 or something. Quick!

    well I was working on a garchomp, breeding up a dragonite for outrage

    Then my suggestion is: level up dragonite! Although garchomp may be banned soon! Like tomorrow or the day after, can't remember.

    Also you need to think of two more pokemon. But, pick one, pick its moves, and get to it! Pokemon is not so mysterious with the help of the internet!

    You may hear people talk about 'team synergy', but screw those assholes. All you need is the ability to take hits and deal damage on both the physical and special sides, and no glaring type weaknesses.

    Well, actually that's a form of synergy. Mainly choose Pokemon you like.

    HI I'M BLUEBLUE I LIKE BLISSEY AND GARCHOMP

    Haha, but no seriously I do. But you don't get to complain! I didn't get the chance to use either of them on you! Actually one of my favorite pokemon all the way back from red is gyarados. The whole worthless pokemon -> awesome guy thing. In pearl I was actually pissed that you could encounter wild gyarados at level 20. Ruins the point! I don't see any wild milotic!

    As far as team building goes, I remember planning out my first team so that the weaknesses were very spread out, and I had super effective moves for many types. It did...ok. Of course what I did not account for was pokemon. Which is to say, a pokemon does not have just one type of move, but a set! I think nearly every pokemon on my initial team could be beaten by weavile. So, if you want to be super hardcore, you have to be aware of popular pokemon and their movesets. Of course the best way to learn about that is through battling.
