    Caught careful and naive high I've dittos

    Went to save the game and somehow crossed a wire in my brain and turned the system off instead

    I just

    Wh

    At this point either you are cursed or on some level you really don't want to start getting into breeding on this game and your subconscious is trying to protect you.

    Caught the adamant ditto with no fuss no muss

    Trying to get the bold ditto had been an infuriating comedy of errors

    Everything from accidentally letting ditto #20-something copy a Pokemon with a move that hit all targets to getting to ditto 40 and realizing I forgot to stock up on balls to now this

    And honestly I am crossing the threshold from being annoyed by this to having such a smouldering hatred that I will die before I give up on getting a breeding set of dittos

    Also i just realized Masquerain got a stat boost, and a quiver dance Masquerain is actually something to be worried about

    They're rare encounters but can be found

    Is there a good guide for which Pokemon do best with which EV spread?

    I'm probably not going to bother IV/Ditto Breeding etc since I don't have a ton of interest in competition stuff, but I want to at the least be sending a reasonable group to Isle Evelup every few days.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to Critical Resistance and Black Lives Matter.

    Usually just google "Smogon [name of pokemon]"

    But if you look at Smogon or Bulbapedia or wherever for the pokemon's natural stats, you can make your own informed decision on what the best EVs would be


    edit: OMIGAD these multi coloured miniors are sooooooooooo cute <3
    Like delicious star candy

    Is there any significance to differently colored miniors, or is it just a random cosmetic thing

  • EnlongEnlong Registered User regular
    Gonna get me a Minior and name him Konpeito.

    I figure Focus Sash + Shell Smash should work well for it.

    You can get one post-game at the Trainer School from a fight with the principal

    Not a problem, though. I'll probably go back and get one when it's time to make the Koko/Pelipper/Raichu team I want.

    Not sure what else should go on that team. Toxapex with Toxic, Scald, Infestation, Recover? Or maybe a Starmie with Scald, Ice Beam, Thunder, and Rapid Spin? I guess maybe that's not necessary if I can eventually get a Pelipper with Defog. Swift Swim Kingdra could make for a nice secondary attacker. That's all ideas for one slot, really.

    Hm... Hawlucha would be a good check for attempts to hit Raichu with Dark or Bug types- dang. Transfer only.

    Toxapex is a great Hazer, I'd do Haze over infestation.

    Oh dang, right. Haze. Can't believe I forgot.

    Either drop Infestation for it, or drop Scald for it. Depends on whether my team can wreck Steel types otherwise.

    Friend, have you heard the good word of Life Orb Rain Golisopod?

    Oooh, that's a good idea. Liquidation, Aqua Jet, Leech Life/X-Scissor, and one other move? Probably Brick Break, Shadow Claw, or... well, ;probably not Swords Dance.
    First Impression is probably worth it even in

    And is it worth it? I would've thought 90 power wouldn't be worth that kind of restriction.

    It's just random cosmetic. Like those flower fairy things in XY.

    It's not just first turn of the battle, it's usable anytime golisopod switches in. With Emergency Exit, that's gonna happen for you. It's pretty good.

    True, but he has other physical Bug options that aren't locked to the first turn. True, Leech Life and X-Scissor are only 80+STAB, but they can be used multiple times and have life drain and high-crit, respectively.

    Or does he have room for both First Impression and Leech Life on his moveset?

    With first impression and sucker punch both being priority moves, I don't care about aqua jet.

    I rock Liquidation, Sucker Punch, First Impression, and Leech Life
