btw I said it had moveslot syndrome since Surf his pretty poor coverage and it doesn't have Pressure to stall with like CroCune (not to imply that CroCune is even close to as effective as Manaphy) which was my reason for saying it. tbh I was just trying to give a balanced look at it kekekeke. I'm not participating in the discussion because I only have experience with a few of the suspects and I want to be objective when I have to crush illogical posts so yeah.
And Skymin sucks, I agree. I don't even know why it's controversial.
For the record, if you don't like Shoddy Battle another simulator has come out for Diamond and Pearl ('The Shoddy Lounge' should be renamed to encompass Netbattle), where Smogon is not there to cause problems in the metagame. It says Latias can be stopped by a defensive Tyranitar with Pursuit, and if you have good prediction skills a Bulky Scizor (one that has invested in HP and Special Defense EVs) can be used to deal with Latias, you can Swords Dance while it uses Calm Mind and immediately finish it off with Bullet Punch. It does not regard Latias as a threat (?), in reality it demolishes (unswathes lol), and it is practically impossible to stop on the Suspect Ladder, even Skymin and Garchomp are less dangerous (yeah i need my Scarfchomp back), therefore it has to stay Uber or the Shoddy Metagame will fail.
When you (your a guy always) start off in your house you are immediately alerted to the presence of a ghost you open the door very slowly (about 10 mins) and happy music plays (to intensify the mood) and there is a ghost.....
pokemon. You make friends with it and join it in its quest to recover the legendary weapons Excalibur, Masamune, Gungnir all of which are not usable in a pokemon rpg but are there to look pretty. Suddenly you realise you aren't in your house like omg you are in your house in another dimension where there is pokemon!!! you begin on a quest to collect badges and the THREE WEAPONS OF POWER for no discernible reason and lacking any relevance to your aim of going home. You see your rival who incidentally is much cooler and mysterious than you and always gets the girl ill call him vance he starts out with a lvl 1 larvitar and you proceed to beat him up with your level 100 gengar suddenly after the battle the gengar is on the verge of death and pleads with you to recover the weapons suddenly it turns into a ghastly (sp?) at level 1 so that the game isn't too easy and about your rival you defeated him already so lol then you go to collect the first badge but suddenly there is this wierd (sp?) guy from team fat (sp?) who wants to rule the world but has only three members but stalks you for fun they are very weak so it hopefully wont make the game too hard haha they only use ratata as they are fanboys of larvitar
suddenly you find a funny looking guy who says he wants to destroy the world, for what idk but who cares bad guy kills your rival who is your bf and your like noo and prepare to exact vengeance along the way in a cave you find some piece of junk called excalubri (sp?) you melt it down and sell it and you get to the first gym and you meet the first gym leader some old guy whos forgot his name he suffers from urinary incontinence and there is a weird smell in the gym he uses water pokemon and sits on a white throne with a cap (idk what thats for)
more coming later !!!
EDIT: what going home youre already home for petes sake
