So anyway, today they let us play without legendaries. And it was a BIG difference. one trainer I played, five of his pokemon were weak to ground type moves. Swampert used earthquake on him three times, and then I had won. Most of these people are nothing without a bunch of legendaries.

Thank You. I Hate Noobs Whose Whole Team Relies On Ubers. Take That Away, Their Nothing. Then They Think They Are Great Trainers, All While Using Ubers.

I did meet a few good ones up there, though. I found out from one battle that I need a better pokemon with fire moves. These Bronzong and Metagross are killing me. didn't help I actually ended up battling him twice, so that was two losses on my docket.

Ah, what a shame. Well, they just don't make noobs like they used to.

A good chunk of my battles were pretty easy, though. I still can't get over that one guy trying to use thunderbolt on a swampert.

Hehe, most n00bs won't know the elemental chart will make improper generalizations.

It's a glorious, new, legendary-free age for us competitive trainers! :D

So, they banned the use of legendaries?
That's kind of dumb, they should make it so that there's two different leagues, one with legendaries and one without. If they don't want us to use legendaries competitively they shouldn't have put them in the game. I understand that legendaries are a kind of pokemon on steroids, and should not be used constantly, but they have a place.

Also, I would like to say, that some of the combinations in DP surprised me, like Empoleon being water/steel and Infernape being fire/fighting (well, I kind of expected it that they would be that), it was very interesting how they tossed up the original rock/paper/scissors style of play.

Legendaries are really only there as rewards for completing story arcs. <.<;

What good is the reward if you can't use it?

Ichida
July 3rd, 2007, 11:12 PM
They're trophies. Trophies you can use for not much more than to sweep in-game trainers and the Elite Four.

от_Ian
July 3rd, 2007, 11:17 PM
Hey, I feel bad now, I didn't use any legendaries when I beat the elite 4. I even took deoxys off my team.

Ichida
July 3rd, 2007, 11:20 PM
Well, it really doesn't matter what you use to beat in-game enemies, as long as you win. It's when doing any serious PvP battling that legendaries become a no-no. :P

от_Ian
July 3rd, 2007, 11:29 PM
I still want to make a team of 'cute legendaries' uxie, mew, mespirit, azelf, manaphy, and celebi.
I don't expect to go anywhere with them, they're all psychic which means it's easily picked apart. But I think it'd be funny.

I'm glad to hear that a ban on ubers is happening .
It get's old when you face uber teams because it could mean a very slim chance on winning.

Well in Gardenia's thread "NO MORE UBERS". We addressed this same topic. Everyone there agreed that there should be a seperate tournament for legens only. Pokemon that you can't use aren't worth catching.

If you want an uber tier competition, organize an unofficial tourney of ubers for yourselves in D/P, or something.

Abyssion
July 4th, 2007, 12:12 PM
This is an Uber ban and not a Legendary ban, right? They've banned just Ubers before, so I hope that's the case. I REALLY want to use a Cresselia once I get this game.

Ichida
July 4th, 2007, 12:30 PM
As if it makes a difference. Legendaries altogether should be banned, whether they are or not at this point.

As if it makes a difference. Legendaries altogether should be banned, whether they are or not at this point.

Legendaries like Azelf are quite a bit weaker than legendaries like Lugia. Garchomp, Dragonite, Metagross, Tyranitar, Salamence are up there with the weaker legendaries, so banning all legendaries and leaving them alone is...odd (couldn't think of a better word... >.>).

Ichida

As I've said before, I consider legendaries nothing more than trophies for completing story arcs you can use to sweep the in-game trainers and the Elite Four.

ppl who use a full team of untraind legends are lazy to train they don't want to go hunt for electrizer and evo a elekid to breed then go get the right nature and than ev train him this would take a while but it well pay of at the end i breeded about 60 ralts to get a female modest one

You guys know what? People use ubers for a reason.

Not everyone has the patience to EV train or buy TM's and crap.

Not everyone feels like ogling at stats and natures.

Some people want to play the game.

Not everyone bought the game to do a lot of complicated math and stuff.

So stop saying whoever uses ubers are n00bs.

They're as much of pokemon players as any of you.

Ichida
July 4th, 2007, 12:59 PM
And some of us want to win. :D Don't have the patience? Don't count on winning against players like us. This is a game of stats, natures, movesets, and elements. If you can't accept that, stick to fighting in-game trainers and other wannabes.

AztecSunshine
July 4th, 2007, 12:59 PM
if they can't train than why would they buy the game in the first place? it's like geting a pool with out swimming in it

Well, then start training.

You can't always blaim your loss at battles on the opponent.

It could be partly your fault for having crappy pokemon.

And dark mudkib, people buy the game to have fun. Ever heard of fun?

Oh, my bad, I forgot, you're all too busy figuring out EV's, IV's and natures to even play the damn game at all.

My training's done. My Pokemon are all finished and kicking ass already, with my 71-21 battle record. I don't mind the odd loss; gives me a chance to rethink my strategies. Oh, and I even made time to collect each and every Pokemon. You think we're not having fun because we're advanced strategists? Winning is fun, isn't it? That's what I do; win. Why? Because I took the time to plan out my team and train them up properly. You should try it sometime.

Must I remind you, Pokemon is a video game! It doesn't require as much work as you're giving it.

And you say winning is fun. Duh, it is fun, but you have to lose sometime as well.

And you can't get pissed at those people anyway. It's not like they know people don't like their team.

"Better gamers"? O RLY? Lemme tell you somethin', boy. You are no better than any of the people that don't EV train and stuff. We're all equal, because we all enjoy Pokemon.

I don't play Pokemon "for the sake of playing".

I play it because I enjoy it. Winning IS NOT everything.

You obviously fail to realize that.

And Abyssion, the first part of this post applies to you too. I'm sick of you arrogant people thinking you're oh so much better than people because you put too much thought into a video game.

And also, don't think just because you've been here longer than I, that you can just come up here and make fun of me. I will report you, boy.

Must I remind you, Pokemon is a video game! It doesn't require as much work as you're giving it.

Common rule of video games like pokémon: More effort = more reward.

And you say winning is fun. Duh, it is fun, but you have to lose sometime as well.

Ichida has 21 losses so far, you know. We aren't gods.

And you can't get pissed at those people anyway. It's not like they know people don't like their team. I truely doubt 80% knew their team would be hated.

Hark, the cry of the loser. No offense, but that is fact. Winning is fun; that's what we do. When optimistic people lose, they claim that having fun is the important thing. But they are right, having fun is the important thing, bringing me back full circle to my original point: winning is what's fun in this game, so we do what it takes to win. If you cannot learn to get with the way this game is played, then don't ***** at us because you're too lazy to learn the difference between EVs and Eevees.

I'm currently rebreeding my staraptor. it's nice, but needs a bit more work. ALso have plans for a snorlax.

Having pokemon that form a team strategy, instead of just being their own little stand alone. a team that works together nicely is better than one that doesn't, because one that doesn't more than likely will find itself conflicting.

my problem is coming upwith a team strategy. so far all I'm thinking is "Special sweeper, physical sweeper, special sponge, spinning spiker. The rest, I have yet to decide.

You should do a physical wall. I don't know the best ones, but I've heard of Cloyster, Swalot, etc. Cloyster is dead against special attacks though.

The funniest thing of all is when you see said Giratina users try to use Shadow Force, then you switch in something Normal-element and watch them have wasted two turns before you kill the damn dragon. I love to just switch into Porygon-Z and then Ice Beam the Giratina to death.

Because the idea of a ghostly dragon excites people, and Shadow Force can't be blocked by Protect or Detect. It can however be walled by Normal types, which is bloody hilarious to pull off. :P

Breed a male Hitmonchan that knows Ice Punch with a female Buneary/Lopunny. Then the Buneary eggs will have Ice Punch. Then breed a male Buneary with a female Sneasel.

ok because currently their moves stink

sceptile: leaf blade, leaf storm, detect (-_-), and earthquake

weavile: ice beam (-_-), surf (-_-), night slash (got this one), giga impact (runnin out of tm's here)

also heres stats:

sceptile

230 sp. atk
184 sp. def
283 speed

weavile
hp. 266
attack 297 (EV trained)

Ichida
July 10th, 2007, 08:54 AM
You have to, since the cap for all EVs is 510 but each stat can only max out at 255 EVs, so for full effect you need to train at least two stats.

~Mithos~
July 10th, 2007, 09:01 AM
I don't understand, do you mean a stat can reach 510, but killing pokemon to get the 1,2,3,4 count where 4 equals 1, you can only get 255 of those?

*sigh* Did I not say to read it, carefully? I swear, people arne't even trying...

510 is the max EVs any Pokemon can attain in total, 255 is how many EVs any one particular stat can have before it stops counting. Most people max out the EVs for two stats. 255 x2 = 510, etc etc.

Ichida
August 2nd, 2007, 10:10 PM
1. Teach them Fighting or Ground-element moves to battle Rocks. Most Fire-elements can.

2. Duh. Kyogre's Rain Dance perfects Thunder's accuracy and boosts the power of Water-element moves. Palkia should only know one Water-element attack though; any good sweeper needs an elemental variety.

3. Naive or Hasty are not good natures to use for anyone. Jolly or Timid are useless natures since Spiritomb's speed is abysmal, even at its max. Without Trick Room, it'll never outrun anything.

4. Pokerus, Macho Brace, and/or any of the Power hold items.

5. Why's there no #5?

6. Ice and Dragon. Simple elemental tables.

7. Even with Hidden Power, their stats are still terrible and they define the lack of versatility.

8. Smeargle.

9. Sunny Day.

10. Don't use Togetic. Evolve it first. Grass Knot.

Avolition
August 2nd, 2007, 11:05 PM
1. Another method.

2. Kyogre has drizzle, which makes it rain until someone else uses a weather attack. Rain makes Thunder hit all the time, and water moves get stronger. Its still not a god idea to have 3 water moves.

3. They all raise speed.

4. A macho brace/pokerus/power item and a good nature.

6. Ice and rock. Rayquaza is a dragon itself, and it learns ice beam. It should be able to handle other dragons.

7. Nothing.

8. Smeargle.

9. Sunny Day, because Sunny Day makes Solarbeam hit in one turn instead of having to charge up for a turn.

10. I don't know. I don't use Togetic because it sucks. Does that make me not a skillful trainer? >_>

Also, I beat two overused teams 5-0 with my neverused team today. I feel pretty accomplished, knowing I beat another couple of noobs' faces in.

To all you people that say "I'm equal to to you",well then,try battling the rest of these trainers without your ubers, I will admit that I use a few ubers,but unlike you uber n00bs I know how to use them correctly. In contrast,most of you uber relying trainers use nothing but brute force.

If you can't answer ALL of these questions, then you are not a skillful trainer.

1. if you picked a fire type get mach punch for a super effective and maybe STAB attack.

2. because of kyogers drizzel which boosts water moves and ups the accuracy of thunder type attacks.

3. because those natures up its speed while lowering something else.

4. it would be helpful to have PKRS and machobrace/power items

5. you forgot five...

6. ice and dragon types.

7. hidden power?

8. mew and almost all the moves smeargle.

9. sunny day, although it's not nessisary.

10. it's definately grass knot why would you use a togetic instead of a togekiss.

1. if you picked a fire type get mach punch for a super effective and maybe STAB attack.

First gym's Pokemon have high defenses. Just because it's supereffective doesn't mean that it'll faint the Pokemon in one hit.

2. because of kyogers drizzel which boosts water moves and ups the accuracy of thunder type attacks.

You shouldn't give Palkia more than 1 water-type move, no matter what. ;)

3. because those natures up its speed while lowering something else.

Spiritomb doesn't want them. If he wants to be a sweeper, then Modest is better.

4. it would be helpful to have PKRS and machobrace/power items

Decent IVs, correct nature, Pokerus, and Power items.

5. you forgot five...

6. ice and dragon types.

It doesn't have to avoid it. It's weak to Ice, Dragon and Rock.

7. hidden power?

Unown is still useless no matter what.

8. mew and almost all the moves smeargle.

Mew can't learn every move, lol :D

. if you picked a fire type get mach punch for a super effective and maybe STAB attack.

First gym's Pokemon have high defenses. Just because it's supereffective doesn't mean that it'll faint the Pokemon in one hit.
so, using fighting moves on ground is stupid now? your wrong.

2. because of kyogers drizzel which boosts water moves and ups the accuracy of thunder type attacks.

You shouldn't give Palkia more than 1 water-type move, no matter what.

you idiot you asked me why, you didn't ask me if it was a good choice or not.


3. because those natures up its speed while lowering something else.

Spiritomb doesn't want them. If he wants to be a sweeper, then Modest is better.

fine then, don't pay attention to spiritomb

4. it would be helpful to have PKRS and machobrace/power items

Decent IVs, correct nature, Pokerus, and Power items.

once again, you said two things smarty

5. you forgot five...

6. ice and dragon types.

It doesn't have to avoid it. It's weak to Ice, Dragon and Rock.

you asked what it has to avoid! your questions are stupid, you worded them wrong for the comments your giving me back.


7. hidden power?

Unown is still useless no matter what.

you asked what was useful? what should I say nothing?

8. mew and almost all the moves smeargle.

Mew can't learn every move, lol

every TM and metranome? idiot.

9. sunny day, although it's not nessisary.

Why not?

because using sunny day then solarbeam, unless you are using solar beam over and over again (which means your opponents team isn't ballanced) takes the same ammount of turns.

10. it's definately grass knot why would you use a togetic instead of a togekiss.

Depends on what Pokemon it is. =/

1) I thought he used Rock-types :(
2) He asked why you should use 3 Water-type moves, and you shouldn't.
3) No comment
4) But there are 4 things you should have before EV-training. :)
6) Once again, I didn't make this test. >>
7) Once again, I didn't make this test. >>
8) I thought 'learn' was permanent.
9) You don't have to use Solarbeam over and over again. After you use Sunny Day, you can still use other moves. If you charge your Solarbeam, then the opponent can just switch into something like Blissey and wall it and recover from it.
10) Second type? Weight?

They are called ubers for a reason. They're (some at least) are hard/annoying to beat, even with a good non-uber team. It makes me so mad when I find a team full of ubers. If I get Spacial Rend'd again I will pull my hair out.

the last questions awnser :

Togitic can learn a move called follow me,which makes opponent pokemon in battle attack the only the user user,therefore my fire pokemon won't be hit by water type moves,don't tell ME that I don't know what I'm talking about. The test was meant to be stupid because nubers are stupid and you shouldn't have a problem with it unless you are a nuber. It was a joke. It was supposed to be stupid.

The test was meant to make uber users look like retards.

The point that I was trying to make was uber reliers are stupid.
Not to mention ,I was basing it of my experiences,Ive used nothing but fire type starters for every pokemon game and I don't seem to have a problem with the rock type gyms.

Also I did have an account that had a much higher post count but it must have been deleted because it was inactive for a year or so.

You guys know what? People use ubers for a reason.

Not everyone has the patience to EV train or buy TM's and crap.

Not everyone feels like ogling at stats and natures.

Some people want to play the game.

Not everyone bought the game to do a lot of complicated math and stuff.

So stop saying whoever uses ubers are n00bs.

They're as much of pokemon players as any of you.

^This post wins the thread.

If you people hate ubers so much, then why don't you go over to GameFreak and tell them to wipe every single legendary out of existance?
They're not the same thing.

I for one EV train my Pokemon, AND I have lots of legends in my party.

I can't agree commpletley with that statement made by Ichida. I'm not wasting my time finding an uber just so it could sit in my box. However, we can both agree that if you need an uber to make a team, thats pretty damn sad. Ubers belong on UBER teams. Not standard teams. Only a rookie needs to rely on ubers, just like rookies rely on OHKO moves. A kid is proud that his Kyorge KOed my Gyarados with Sheer Cold? Absolutely pathetic.

People who engage in uber battles are like alcoholics who drink together. They think that just because they both do it, it's publicly acceptable, even though the smart people know they're just deluding themselves. It's like a fight in Dragon Ball. It's explosive, doesn't require effort to weave together, and it pisses nearby people off.

That was hilarious, and wins the award for best quick, off-the-top response for the month. If they wanna have an uber battle, let them. I could care less. I don't partake. Ubers, well, I don't bother with. But we can both agree that if you need one to make a sucsessful team, you should put down your poke balls.

I agree with Eternal Smasher and Yoshimitsu. I myself am a competitive battler and wouldn't even think about using Ubers outside their own metagame. Let's not forget that most Pokémon players aren't competitive battlers and thus don't know about tiers or EVs, Natures and IVs for that matter. As long as you don't run into a team of EV trained Ubers a good EV trained team should be able to take care of them. Un-EV trained Ubers are a piece of cake for any good player so I don't see why it's such a big deal if some random clueless people use Ubers; at least they'll be able to put up some kind of a fight that way. And no, I don't own PBR (it isn't even out in Europe and I don't have a Wii to begin with) myself, but I've seen enough videos to know that most of these n00bs have absolutely no idea what they're doing.
Because legendaries are trophies to make weak kids think they've got skills. Their only real practical use is exploding the Elite Four so you can start Pal Parking.
Legendaries =/= Ubers. Normal legendaries (such as Entei, Articuno, Zapdos, Mesprit etc.) require as much skill as any normal Pokémon and Uber battles are a hell of a lot of fun as long as you stick to their own metagame.

Well, for one thing in this topic people were talking about, you know when your stat is maxed out, when one of those vitamins won't work, and you haven't already used 10 of 'em. That's what I do. I save before hand. If it works, I reset.

As for the other thing, I really didn't EV train until recently (EVing for Speed now, Hasty Pichu), and I stopped using Ubers a good time ago.

I don't have PBR, or even a Wii myself, but hey, when that time comes, I won't need ubers, because I've got my OWN skill.

Yes, Yes, I know, 99% of this post is just repeating info... but hey, it's my two cents.

To me, uber battles, OU/UU battles, are like regular, outside fights. Think of it like this:

UU:Knives
OU:Guns
Uber:Tanks

A OU fight is like a gun fight. Fierce & Fun. UU vs OU are like knives vs gun. Seemingly one-sided, but do-able, with skill. But no matter how much skill you have, a well trained OU/UU ain't beating a well trained uber, like Guns/Knives vs Tanks. Exect for noob ubers, which are always fun to watch lose.

Uber battles are fun, but ubers are so strong, they have no place outside of their own meta-game. Like Smarties-kun said.

Well, I disagree strongly. Yes, noob ubers are easy and regular ubers are a pain but I've taken down ubers with OUs before. Heh. My team is quite a balanced one. It's got 4 OU and 2 Ubers to keep from getting my rump kicked by nubers lol

You mean on random PBR fights, right? In a real fight, ubers are honestly just too strong. And not just any uber either. I mean a fully EV trained, good natured, proper moveset, uber might indeed take 1/2 a team or more to take out.

IMO, the attitude I am seeing utterly sickens me, why should people play the game how others like.

Its their game, they can use what they want, and if they enjoy using them I am in no position to insult them for it, insulting them for that that is very childish and retarded at the same time.

It's called a f*cking competitive standard, people. Why is it so bloody hard for you to understand that this is how we compete in this game. We don't use ubers (see signature quote) because they are statistically unbalanced. And to all of you who know what EV training is and still choose not to, don't even think about challenging someone competent, because it results in your total defeat and a string of people calling you lazy, which you obviously are for ignoring the advanced training methods. I am sick and tired of how slothful, stubborn, and inadaptive people like you are. And before you pull out the "it's a game, we play it our way" excuse once again, let me offer my response to that right now: If you want to play with your own methods, I've no problem with that, as long as you don't take it against players like me who actually care about maintaining a status quo in the online Pokemon battling circuit.

In summation, either learn to play like the rest of the competent competitors, or stay the f*ck away from us.

Are you talking to me? Well, I won't argue, but what your saying will fall on deaf ears. Sure, there is standard. Now try explaining that to everyone else who bought the game. Tell Game Freak & Nintendo that there is a standard in the game that must be met that we gamers had made up, and that it shouldn't be E for everyone, but SP for standard players. Tell all pokemon owners that they must play by our standard rules, and despite the fact that they bought PBR and have the wifi to use it, they can't play unless they play by our rules. I play by standard rules, sure, but I am not superior to call people names for not playing a game marketed towards kids the elite way. Before xXscytherXx comes, I mean the game was made for kids, hence why there are always children on the commercials. Of course, it is deep enough for adults, but simple enough for kids.

If it was directed at me, I won't respond, seeing as I have been in these kind of debates and I know how they end, I will probably get banned so there is no point.

But if so, you are mistaken, I don't use ubers, mainly cause they don't appeal to me, also because their design is unoriginal, but I am not quick to overreact over small things in games, especially games aimed at children, so I am going to leave this topic because I am positive I will get attacked and flamed, and maybe banned for my counter responses.

^This is probably the most intelligent post made in this thread as of yet. If a little kid wants to use a Giratina or Deoxys online, let them. How fair is it to use something against a little kid that he/she has probably never heard of because they're so young? Sure, if they don't know how to battle, they'll probably lose, and maybe even learn from their loss if they're lucky. A fair part of Pokemon battles is trail-&-error, losing battles and learning from one's mistakes. After all, what can you learn from winning all the time?

I'm also surprised that the other point was never brought up until here: the thread was made to complain about fresh, untrained Ubers from "noobs", but what about nature-picked, EV-trained ubers from actual competitive players? Now you no longer have the "he's too lazy" excuse because actual training HAS been used. I personally don't think people should be looked down upon for using ubers when they actually trained them competitively...as long as they don't go overboard and it isn't sprung on them from out of nowhere in a FC match.

pokeguy12
September 3rd, 2007, 10:49 AM
actually legendaries aren't THAT darn weak my lv100 azelf may only have 337 sp atk and 303 speed but with 1-2 nasty plots it can exceed alakazams 380+ sp atk. add that to an expert belt and it does a LOT of damage. i normally don't really use legendaries although now i will point out why some aren't ubers:

I am talking about Non-Uber Legendaries, of course. I always see people banning these, even though they have around the same bases as the OU pokemon. Let's take a look at those.

Ubers are pokemon who's base stat totals exceed 600, with a few exeptions.

BST= Base Stats.

Zapdos BST: 580
Articuno BST: 580
Moltres BST: 580

Entei BST: 580
Raikou BST: 580
Suicune BST: 580

Regirock BST: 580
Regice BST: 580
Registeel BST: 580

Mesprit BST: 580
Azelf BST: 580
Uxie BST: 580

So far, NONE of these guys have exceeded or even got to 600, so they are perfectly safe to use in the OU Tier.
Now for some more:

Cresselia BST: 600
Heatran BST: 600

These may look pretty high, but none are over 600. Besides, look who else has 600 BST.

Garchomp: 600
Dragonite: 600
Tyranitar: 600
Metagross: 600
Salamence: 600

That's right, some of the most overused pokemon out there today have the same BST totals of the previous 3 legendaries and have higher ones than the trios. So, if you ban legendaries you may as well ban Chomp/Nite/T-Tar/Gross/Mence, and if you don't, you're a hypocrite.
Furthermore, if legendaries aren't fair, then why are they allowed in the Battle Tower? The Battle Tower will let the Non-Uber legendaries in because they don't have the stats to be banned.

If you think you don't need to train legendaries for them to be good, then read:

Azelf Modest and untrained reaches 314 Sp. Attack and 266 Speed.

Alakazam Modest EV trained reaches 405 Sp. Attack and 339 Speed.

Now Azelf Modest and EV trained reaches 383 Sp. Attack and 329 Speed.

That means it still doesn't top Alakazam.
(Yes, Azelf may have a superior Attack, as well as some other stats upgraded, but D/P's Metagame is all about speed, hence people always choosing Jolly/Timid over Adamant/Modest. When there are things such as Weavile, Scarfcross, Aerodactyl, Alakazam[Shadow Ball], Agiligross, DDMence, and others running amok, the playing field is evened out).

So, WHY would you ban this if it can't even top a normal pokemon? Legendaries DO take skill to train, you can't just breed them for better IVs, and you need to EV train them just like any other pokemon. Level doesn't matter because everyone does Level 100 battles anyways.

~~~Exceptions~~~

Non-Uber: Regigigas

Sure, Regigigas has 670 Base, but his ability cuts his Speed and Attack for the 5 turns EVERY TIME HE IS SENT OUT, leaving him at 540 BST. Since no one else would have him out for more than 5 turns anyways, he is placed in the BL tier, far from the Ubers.

Uber: Darkrai, Wobbuffet, Lati@s, Mew

Darkrai has 600 BST, but his speed and moves/ability combination keeps him banned. Dark Void is a better version of Hypnosis, especially in double battles, and he has Nightmare/Dream Eater and an ability to stack on this.

Wobbuffet: His massive HP, moveset, and ability keeps him banned. He can kill nearly any pokemon, and take down a second one with him with Destiny Bond. Shadow Tag also doesn't allow them to switch out, keeping them trapped.

Lati@s: They have superior typing and an incredible movepool, placing them in the Uber tier.

Mew: When something like Smeargle has the potential to ruin teams just because of the biggest movepool ever, Mew will be an incredibly upgraded version of that. Put in Ubers because of a good stat build and a superior and an unpredictable movepool that tops nearly everything else.

*sigh* It was never about being able to beat ubers or not, because I've defeated teams of shiny, hacked, trained legendaries, including a Regigigas without Slow Start spamming Sacred Fire. It's about ethics and maintaining an honorable playing field between players. Any Pokemon can beat any other Pokemon with the right strategy. I mean hell, look at the "F.E.A.R.." It's the weakest, crappiest Pokemon in existence but it can still kill any Pokemon.

They're as much of pokemon players as any of you.

1.If you don't have the patience to use legit, well-earned pokemon, you might as well not play the game at all.

2.There's a simple solution to that: here, why don't you just catch a pokemon and train it? There, no ogling at stats and natures there, amirite?

3.Oh, I assure you, playing the game through correctly and training pokemon that you yourself earned is much better described as "playing the game" than messing with the game with some action replay or something and acting all tough because you messed with the game's coding and lacked the patience of training a real pokemon. Besides, aren't I playing the game by turning the power on and pressing buttons? :')

4. You're right, some bought the game to just play until after they beat the first gym leader then let it rot in their closet, but at least they didn't cheat. They also had the common courtesy to not send their Lv. 100 Arceuses online and beat people's arses that actually earned their pokemon, amirite?

pokeguy12, Ichaste Pekoni, and Smarties-chan make excellent points. My EV trained Staraptor beat my friend's entire team on untrained Ubers. And as for trained ubers, well yes, they're unbalanced--that's what uber battles are for. FOr crying out loud, why is there the attitude that the OU tier is the only one in existence?

This is one thing that stops me getting back into competitive battling. Me, I train what I like and I don't use most legendaries and most ubers. I prefer winning with my ninetales or my hitmonchan anyday then with Salamence, Gachomp or Swampert or even most of the legendaries. Its just so much more rewarding.

In short...I use pokemon I like the look of, and train them to be as strong as I can get them legally. To me thats what Pokemon is all about. Not about wiping the floor with ubers, not using untrained or trained legendary teams (especially those which are also uber) or hacked pokemon. Using what you like the best and having fun while using them.

Although, I am not against Ubers, most of my battling experience comes from battling people casually and of course occasionly teaching those who thought thier "team" was undefeatable just how wrong they were (But that was in the Color and Metal Gens)

Please note that these are my opinions, I'll battle anyone as long as thier pokemon are legit.

^ But you see, that's the same reason why anyone would use ANY Pokemon. Yes, you get the ten year olds with all ubers just for the sake of ubers, but what if your favorite Pokemon just happen to be ubers. I adore Lugia in all it's broken-ness I've never actually trained one competitively though.

I love my Staraptor and Charizard just as much as I love my Tyranitar and Latios. I plan on having a Garchomp on my second Diamond team, and a Salamence on my Topaz/Opal team, simply because I've never used then before and they intrigue me.

Seriously, I'm actually considering it. I think I'm gonna make a Physical Mewtwo. His Attack stat is nothing to brag about, even in the OU arena, nor are any of his defenses. His speed/HP are arguable, but if I give them no EVs and a negative speed nature, it might just work...

But seriously, those weren't really good nicknames. I'm sure there are better ones detailing the same thing.

People that use Ubers are noobs because they cant train their own pokemon. Using ubers is fine until you can train properly and use EVs, etc, it is then time to have some common decency and stop using them.

Ironically, "common decency" doesn't apply to most people who use ubers, as they believe winning by any means = JUSTICE OLOLOLOL.

I recently had a 3v3 lvl100 match with an elementary year student (the little bother of a friend), who believed his cheated shiny Mewtwo x 3 made him a good player. I got through his whole team with a choice scarfed Skuntank (the "ace" of my poison only team.) He accused me of cheating (see the irony here?), because Skuntanks are "bad Pokemon, and shouldn't be able to kill Mewtwo."

Afterwards I played another 3v3 against another elementary year student. She beat me with her Absol, who magic coated my Crobat's hypnosis, sword danced while I switched to Weezing, then baton passed to a CB Garchomp, where my will-o-wisp missed. Outrage -> Outrage -> Outrage and got OHKO'd pretty much.
But I didn't mind. She had good manners unlike my friend's bother.

Hey, my nicknames...I didn't even come up with kyuber...epic fail. I'm adding that to my sig. What a great term. "Epic fail." I love it! What abouyt mewber...okay, that was not good...

As for people using ubers, I actually like it when n00bs think they're all high and mighty and I 6-0 'em...I've been called a hacker several times, which makes me lol. If you're gonna use ubers, at least use 'em right...rayquaza with fly was my all-time fav...it was against my rhydon XD

i totaly agree that ubers are generally used by weak people, but i have t***arties, uber and non, i generall use the uber though, especilly on pbr colleseum mode because it makes battles easier, its also kinda fun to use ubers.

So anyway, today they let us play without legendaries. And it was a BIG difference. one trainer I played, five of his pokemon were weak to ground type moves. Swampert used earthquake on him three times, and then I had won. Most of these people are nothing without a bunch of legendaries.


I Know That Is Really Annoying! I Use my Top-5 non-legendary team And the Other Person uses Like Legendarys!

It's called a f*cking competitive standard, people. Why is it so bloody hard for you to understand that this is how we compete in this game. We don't use ubers (see signature quote) because they are statistically unbalanced. And to all of you who know what EV training is and still choose not to, don't even think about challenging someone competent, because it results in your total defeat and a string of people calling you lazy, which you obviously are for ignoring the advanced training methods. I am sick and tired of how slothful, stubborn, and inadaptive people like you are. And before you pull out the "it's a game, we play it our way" excuse once again, let me offer my response to that right now: If you want to play with your own methods, I've no problem with that, as long as you don't take it against players like me who actually care about maintaining a status quo in the online Pokemon battling circuit.

In summation, either learn to play like the rest of the competent competitors, or stay the f*ck away from us.

I wholeheartidly agree with you.

The only time iv ever used legendaries or ubers all of you may ask?

When im helping lvl my perfec mvoesetted pokemon up a few (Shiyn Leafeon Glaceon Duo FTW)

But other than that ubers deserve to shine in the pokemon PC

Where they belong.

Uber using people look like n00bs to me in my eyes O_O

Legends are fine, cept for the Uber ones. That includes Wobbuffet as well

We are competitive professionals fighting against 8-year olds who think they are unbeatable with a Dialga/Mewtwo. It is REALLY easy to overturn idiots that don't EV train their Pokemon, we CAN beat them, this thread is saying uber users without ubers are complete moronic newbs in wi-fi battling :\ (like you)

Because Ubers have a great amount of stats, atleast about 70/80 over the OUs.(Slaking is an exception)
Plus some signature moves they learn(eg. Spacial Rend)

Entire team = complete moronic

Legends ARE fine, as long as they don't pass over 600 stats (wobbuffet, Darkrai, Mew, or even Manaphy O_O which have really really really foolhardy movepool)

Slaking is different, it has Truant

Ubers aren't fine for people who really like playing the game and working hard to train their Pokemon, using ubers is like using Hypnosis and sleeping the entire team with Yanmega :\

Admit it! Smacking down uber noobs has a certain "guilty pleasure", so to speak. Like shooting blanks. Or politics. Or beating nubers.

Uxie = not Uber so it's okay to use

on the other hand Cresselia is always OVER Uxie but that's up to you

The worst n00b I came across was a player with Giratina. After using Shadow Ball on my Togekiss countless times thinking the attack missed, he disconnected intentionally 0_0
