    hey I just noticed something. Linc's pokemon know moves they don't learn for many many more levels, so how do they know them? I was checking tirtouga's wiki page to see what solid rock was and to see type match ups were like, and I saw aqua tail was learned at level 41. Bixi is level what 13? I'm quite sure the rules for the RP were that your pokemon's moves must be in accordance with your pokemon's levels.

    If I'm wrong then damn that sucks since that's what I've been going off of, and it puts me at a major disadvantage to everything.

    Well when you think about it Isaac wouldn't teach it like a class he'd probably just show him some tricks or help Linc train his pokemon some. No actual lesson.

    I am just going to say this though about you using/making combos:

    number one rule: it's all about making it not over powered. When making a combo don't always think how can I make this awesome think how can I keep this realistic. Obviously a combo is more then one move so it is more often then not stronger in generic dmg, but don't just make it deal combined dmg. if you do it's not a combo its just two move used one after the other. when it comes to bonus effects it's okay to make all the possibilities still count, but keep the chances low especially when you can get more then one per hit. Overall make combos an interesting way to use the best parts of moves, and keep a battle fun.

    going to see that revised post now.

    Well like I said in the RP/anime style a turn is the attack and response not two random attacks. often moves like protect or detect are instantly activated in response to an attack. Basically after someone posts their attack you post with a protect and the attack is instantly blocked.

    In this case it's a bit more complex, you can say that again, in this case it's a bit more complex, because of all the stat calculations. Basically I'll go back to my point with revenge though since it cuts out all the speed stats. After Shieldon began to dig Cauldero charged up magma tomb (dig=attack, magma tomb=response). This turn Cauldero is waiting for Shieldon to attack, so Cauldero goes second. (Dig= attack first, Magma tomb= response second). then the turn ends and a new one begins.

    Biggest rule in RP/Anime style: DO NOT FOCUS ON THE GAME RULES!!!

    Anime and RP styles are based on a much bigger system. They are about actually using every aspect of the pokemon and the trainer to battle. Basically enviromental effects are more then just weather. You have to take account of basic brains and common sense, simple actions that can change the course of the battle, and most importantly, atleast to me, think! In the games you can get through all the gyms just using type match ups and simple combos. ex.(Beat Drayden today using swagger and foul play. one hit killed his Haxsorous. [I restarted my black version since my first time through was just rushed so I could explore the region and all that.)

    In this style you just gotta look at what is going on and act on it. Hope you understand where I am coming from. I've been doing pokemon RP's for years on a couple of sites, and well you just learn to expand your tactics.

    also you game for the whole thing on combos?

    well if you'd like I can show you some tricks for making combo moves for other RPs, and maybe I can have Isaac teach Linc a bit IC.

    hope that makes sense to you. I'd also like to say this is based on my Pokemon RP battle experience. Some other people have different personal rules.

    ((I hope I've understood the turn orders right, but VM me if I haven't. Magma Tomb charged on the turn that Jackson was about to attack with Dig (going second due to having a low speed stat to begin with, and the stacked penalty to speed from two Rock tombs), and would hit on the turn AFTER Dig hits. On that turn Jackson uses Protect, which is a priority move, so it should prevent Jackson being effected by Magma Tomb. I think.))

    Well, nice to see you are good with pokemon, but you may have missed out on two factors, because of my first battle post.

    Factor 1. Torkoal is the slowest final evolution fire type pokemon of all time. It is official. He is one of the slowest pokemon in the game, and I’d say they are equal in speed by now, Cauldero and Jackson.

    This may have been overlooked for my first post, but I made him faster due to an element of surprise. Nothing more then just beginning the fight.

    2. Besides that you made the attack first anyway. Imagine it this way: every time you attack is a new entire turn in an RP battle. In the games turns are one attack each, but RP battles tend to be one RPer’s offense the others defense/response. If you use dig then I have to respond to that, and that is one turn. When Dig hits, and Torkoal hits that is turn two.

    You are saying Protect would be used when the turn began a new correct? Besides all the things above Cauldero is going to use it as a retaliation style move meaning he hits as/after you hit. Think of revenge. Your pokemon ignores speed to go second on purpose.

    I'm cleared to do it because it's a key part of Isaac's backstory/life. He is an expert strategist and teacher for his pokemon. He trains them specifically to pull off combo moves, and thusly since he spends so much of his time making them he can have his pokemon use them. I've been doing this since day one and I even used one in while I was around one of Yellow's characters a while back.

    fair enough. I should have warned you before, but my character is notorius for making combo moves. The one he just used was a combo of ember and rock tomb. I gave you all the stats in the post, and made sure to keep it reasonable, but still it is a out of no where combo move. Sorry I didn't warn you.
