View Full Version : B/W: What are you expecting at the Elite 4?

Tell me your opinion.

For me, maybe something like this:

1st: flying type, with the quickest and the most evasive pokemons

2nd: dark and ghost, with the most mysterious power and the most transparent pokemons

3rd: different types but mainly ice - 2 ice + 1 electric + 1 dragon + 1 water

4th: steel type (4 steel + 1 poison) with the most defensive pokemons which are hardly to get a scratch.

And the champion should be a kid: 1 grass + 1 fire + 1 ground + 1 bug + 1 fighting + 1 normal (lv increase in this order: fighting -> grass -> fire -> ground -> bug -> normal)



What you think? :P

I like the idea of a Flying-type Elite 4 member - there hasn't been a Flying specialist since Winona, if you don't count Falkner, as he was part of a remake, so an Elite 4 member would be refreshing.

However, Karen, even in a remake, was a Dark Elite 4 Member, utilising Ghost types too, so I doubt there'll be another so soon.

I'd like to see a Steel specialist, too. You have some good ideas. :3

I don't care what types they have but I wud like each Elite 4 to have A legendary Pokemon of their specialty Type

However I wud love to have tournaments rather than Elite 4.

I'm still pushing for an anime-style Pokemon league. One that's so hard it's okay to lose. You would just have to make something like top 8.

I personally agree with this, ha I'm actually hoping they incorporate a tournament style type Elite Four into the game. I think it would be pretty awesome.

I'm expecting National Elite Four and National Champion after the Regional Elite Four and Regional Champion beaten by us

Flying (if we ever get a pure flying type..but I assume normal/flying)
Fire & Fire/Ground or Fire/Fighting
water/Ice
Dark

Champ: Mixture of Dark, Dragon, Fire, Steel, Water, and Psychic pokemon.

560cool.
May 28th, 2010, 12:15 PM
Anything is good, I just want it to be .. tough.
Honestly, I never really cared about Pokemon types. As long as I can beat them, it's okay ! :)
Even though a flying type E4 sounds, really, really awesome ! I'm quite looking forward to this !

i actually think a tough elite, lvl 65+ right from the start, would be awesome.
i mean, a game in general that would put you on edge would fit the bill, after HH...

even the champion with a lvl 100 guy, maybe though on the rematch. something to keep us coming back there for more than just money and exp.

I hope this Elite Four is different, I hope they use a different set of types this time
i.e Grass, Flying, Steel & Ice
something different to the usual.

I also hope that it's a bit more difficult from the Levels of (55 - 70) possibly. I really do hope its tough though because in HG/SS the lowest Level was 40 and that's abit ridiculous, so yeah around mid 50's for the start and going upto 70's for the Champion.

4th: Dragon-type
Champion: Maybe the Light-type, if there will be. Or a miscellanous team :)

May 29th, 2010, 08:48 AM
I hope there is some new Elite 4 or leage system, like instead of an elite 4, there should be a leage system, or each step have like 15 different trainers, and one Get picked randomly each time you challenge the Leage. That would make it less repetive too.

Ger Japa

There is so much dragon already, so no more dragon should be better in my opinion :P

i like your 1 and 2, your idea of the champion is brilliant, love it ;)

4. Rock (YES YES YES)
Champion: Misc.

They should use some good strategies with their teams.

May 29th, 2010, 11:08 PM
The Champion should use a team of various Types. Cynthia and Blue were by far the toughest Champions, so I'd like that to return. I don't, however, want to see Elites using diverse teams. Just because they specialize in one Type doesn't mean they're not tough enough already (here's lookin' at you, Glacia!). It would especially be weird if you fought a Water-Type expert, then a Flying-Type expert, then, out of nowhere, a various expert, and then another Electric-Type expert. It would be dreadfully out-of-place.

I want an elite member in the new games which is specialized in Steel-Type Pokemon. I've waited for this since GSC and it just wouldn't happen :P.
The idea of a flying-type expect at the begining is unique as well.

There WILL be a ghost-type elite four,
Why?
see this
Gen 1-ghost type elite four
Gen 2- ghost type gym
Gen 3 ghost type elite four
Gen 4 ghost type gym

same gose for ice

so I think
1st ghost
2nd ice
3rd flying
4th steel

A tournament-style Elite Four would be a nice change of pace, but it would make it harder to use the League as a training opportunity, since your opponent would essentially be randomized. Also, please learn how to spell. PLEASE.

May 30th, 2010, 11:08 AM
#1) Rock/Ground specialist
#2) Bug/Poison specialist
#3) Fire/Steel specialist
#4) Water/Ice specialist
Champ: Psychic/Dark/Light specialist. :P

We know from tradition that at least one of them will be training the region's pseudo-legendary and that their highest-levelled pokemon will progress as such [i, i+2, i+4, i+6, i+9] where i is the initial E4 member's highest-leveled pokemon's level.

i think people were speculating this since the pre-HGSS era, so I doubt that Gamefreak would change the current thread. But, I agree with you. This would probably be better for us, but for those 4 year old. It's not.

I guess flying type would make a comeback. i am hoping for it.

1st- flying
2nd- steel
3rd- grass
4th- poison
Champion- mix. Like Blue and Cynthia.

Rather than types it should be about particular strategies of battling.

Ugh for the last time you people can't have a pure Flying-Type Pokemon. Here's why:

Hypothetical pure Flying-Type Pokemon used ROOST!
Hypothetical pure Flying-Type Pokemon now has NO TYPE!

ichuesther
May 31st, 2010, 08:41 PM
They should have a grass type leader. Though, I am the type to under estimate the power of grass typesm. Ahem, one flamethrower and it's all downhill.
Or maybe the leaders shouldn't have a specific type at all ! :DD
I want Agatha back and Bruno needs to leave -_-

It would have the ??? type, which would be neutral against everything.

June 1st, 2010, 03:54 AM
Personally, I would like to see a theme running through the Elite 4's choice of pokemon, like Reptillian pokemon, pokemon related to a certain culture or Humanoid pokemon...
Or maybe even specific strategies like all out attack, use of status effects and debilitation or a fight of attrition.

But i cant see this happening... what i can see is something a bit like this:
1st: Flying (but mixed with other types, like Altaria and Honchkrow)
2nd: Dragon/Fire
3rd: Steel
4th: Ice
Champ: Mixed

I just want to bring up the fact that out of the 13 american pokemon games there has never been a single electric pokemon in the entire elite four / champion, except Blue would have a jolteon in pokemon yellow and ONLY if you'd started with squirtle.

Soul Silver
June 1st, 2010, 09:00 AM
I'm always a fan for something different, so I definitely liked the idea of focusing on the idea of strategies rather than types.

But I don't think that would happen so any of



Electric

Poison

Fire-But only if there are enough new fire pokemon to use

Dark or Steel but only one otherwise fighting pokemon would romp through it

Champ is again a best of but I want a challenge this time but not by spamming Full Restores, one that has instinctive AI which will react when I change a Pokemon, etc

Also would swap any of them for an Elite Four member who only used Eeveelutions now with 7 of them one wouldn't make it now either decide it by random (ie different for each game) or sit out one of Glaceon/Vaporeon.

Yes, I would really like an Electric-Type Elite! Though, not to be a stop-having-fun-guy, but Squirtle wasn't a Starter in Yellow (Blue's Eevee evolved based on how you performed in the first few battles against him), and he would have a Magneton in its place if he didn't use Jolteon. But, back on topic, an Electric-Type Elite is much needed.

Ger Japa
June 2nd, 2010, 07:30 AM
Seriously i really want to have the elite 4 and champ who are specialist in the types that no elite and champ were before...

Like: flying, bug, electric, grass, normal, rock and steel :/

June 11th, 2010, 06:48 AM
I think that once you beat the Isshu Elite 4 they should allow you to battle the Elite 4s from all regions and maybe a place where you can battle all the champions from previous games.

I think there just going to change the mechanics of roost because, they will make a pure flying type
yeah, cuz foresight takes away the ghost type, and they have a pure ghost type

Flying E4 member will be part of my hero list. Im looking foward to that one. A dark E4 member, I dont see that happening. We could either have them as a gym leader (8th) or the champ, but no E4 for them.

Lets see:
flying
ghost
electric
multi
champ: normal

I already explained flying, but for the ghost type it would be pretty scary. Gengar with dream eater is scary enough for me. The electric E4 member it would be new and challenging. Electric types are fast and scary if they have the ability static. Now the multi e4 member, heh just mix it up a bit. A taste of what the champion will be like, scary isnt it? And the champ with normal type, that can literaly kill you seeing how many moves normal types can learn.

thats just my wishlist :]

I really like the tournament style league. The only thing I would have to add would be to have you win the league and then have to face off against the Elite 4. Once you beat all 4 then you can have a go at the Champion.

For types, I'm fine with anything as long as if they go with Steel there isn't a Steven repeat from Hoenn (I just thought he was boring, personal opinion...)

plz god not another fighting or dragon elite four. I like those types, just not when the E4 uses em.

the last elite four might be ice or rock though. Or maybe Fighting since the same types just swap numbers. idrc though, as long as the champion has epic battle music.

June 23rd, 2010, 09:42 PM
i dunno...
i was thinkin something similar
Electric - please yes! Electrics are my favorite types =D
Flying - sure that'd be something awesome
Ghost - Because Agatha was fun to fight against imo
Normal or Rock would be something Fun for the 4th Member
Champion IMO should be Our Rival again because i liked that... OR
maybe a Family Member like Our Mother, Father, Brother, or Sister or something along those lines i've always wanted to face off against Our Mother in Game >=D
