Nosepass the nosy compass! Did you bother catching him? Impressed by Roxanne's Nosepass? Rock Smash, and all.

Aeroblast August 31st, 2013 8:13 AM

Yes, but only for the Pokedex. By the time you get Rock smash you forget about it.

Amore August 31st, 2013 2:23 PM

Yeah, once. Haven't got him in my last playthrough of Emerald, I just realised. Might have to go back and look. But yeah, he's only good for Pokédex, and you forget about him by the time you have Rock Smash.

I caught a Nosepass in Pokémon Emerald. It was very hard for me to encounter it, though, because every time I went searching for it, a bunch of Geodude used to show up. I used to train this Pokémon a lot, because I thought that I'd be able to evolve it once it got to level 50. Sounds silly, I know. xD When I was finally able to figure out that it doesn't evolve, I traded it with my friend. She needed this Pokémon in order to fill up her Pokédex.

I did catch a Nosepass, but purely for dex filler.

Yumetaro August 31st, 2013 10:00 PM

Nosepass is a quirky little guy, not the best in battle. He might make a cool travel companion.

Lucky1Yena September 1st, 2013 3:09 AM

Nosepass learns Thunder Wave. I don't understand why or how. It's a rock type.

Castform September 1st, 2013 7:09 AM

Roseanne's was a pain in the butt to beat even with Double Kick from Combusken. She would lower my speed with Nosepass's Rock Tomb and then use potions to recover damage which gave her more time to defeat me. Overall, Nosepass is just an OK pokemon. I am not fond of his design at all, but he is a good Pokemon defensively.

Synerjee September 1st, 2013 7:34 AM

I've only caught Nosepass to fill up my Pokedex. Never used it before.

@Lucky1Yena Although it's a rock-type, it probably is able to learn Thunder Wave as it's a magnetic Pokemon, which means it's connected to electricity in a way.

I did catch Nosepass, but simply to fill my Pokedex. I pick my Pokémon team based on looks and I'm not a fan of his design. He could be really powerful for all I know, but I still wouldn't use him in battle.

Ash September 1st, 2013 9:38 AM

I've never even considered using Nosepass on my team. It's just one of those Pokemon that 'oh hey it's okay' but if I wanted a Rock pokemon on my team there are still many other Rock Pokemon I have yet to use. Especially since I don't use Rock types often on my team.

Maybe one say, if I'm running out of Rock Pokemon I'll use it. But until then it will just be a Pokemon that exists but have not been used by me.

Ludger September 1st, 2013 12:41 PM

I didn't know where to get him til way after the point where I would have raised one and added it to my team. I have used it on a team before, and it's eh. It's great for stalling, though.

Sweets Witch September 2nd, 2013 5:55 AM

I used one once and tried to play through the game with it but it wasn't worth it so I boxed it. It was difficult as all hell to find, though. The time I spent looking for one is really disproportional to the time I spent wanting to use it once I had it.

Squirrel September 2nd, 2013 6:05 AM

I haven't used Nosepass simply because it's a stalling/wall Pokémon and those are boring as heck to use in-game. It's like trying to train a Chansey or a Shuckle - they're decent for competitive battling but they're awful to use as Pokémon for an in-game team. I'd be willing to give it a try to see if I'm wrong since his offensive stats aren't drastically bad, btu there are countless other Pokémon that I'd want to try before Nosepass. I caught one for Pokédex completion but that was it haha.

Sheep September 2nd, 2013 10:51 AM

Caught? Yes. Did it cause a lot of anger and frustration as the darn thing wouldn't stay in its Pokeball? Definitely yes! I was never a fan of Nosepass' design so I didn't use him, but I was always a Pokemon collector so having it in my dex was a must.

Jinx September 2nd, 2013 11:00 AM

i was impressed by Roxanne's nosepass. i never caught nosepass though. never interested in him.

KorpiklaaniVodka September 2nd, 2013 11:30 AM

Yes, but it's extremely hard to use thanks to its low stats, so I usually catch it just for the pokedex.

Altair September 2nd, 2013 5:25 PM

I would have used it if I knew where to find it back then. I may use it in my next play through however.

Rivuhh September 2nd, 2013 5:32 PM

It's a good first gym Pokemon. Along with Onix and Miltank and stuff. But once your Pokemon develop a move pool they are practically worthless. I've never caught a Nosepass and I'm not sure if I ever will. However, a solo run with one would be pretty cool.

XeroNos September 3rd, 2013 12:44 AM

No , because I don't like Nosepass as in my opinion it is too slow in battles as well as with average moves. Though it's evolution provides some decent results but that's another story

Falsever September 7th, 2013 1:48 AM

I've caught it when I first played RSE.
I thought it'd be a strong Pokémon.
But I was wrong, it's extremely bad Pokémon in my team.
I ended up to use it as a Rock Smasher.

Ari Niko September 28th, 2013 9:07 PM

Never caught one. I was too young at the time to really care about stats, all I knew was that Roxanne beat me quite easily every time I went up against her at first.

Negix September 30th, 2013 7:41 PM

Actually yes, I have captured it a couple of times. But only for filling the pokedex, it never was a Pokemon that intrigued me.

Guardian September 30th, 2013 10:34 PM

LOL, it looks a BIT cute at first, and I did catch it but only for dex filler. But I would definitely never use it, his evolution is just ugly.

mrpokemonxy October 20th, 2013 4:59 PM

Nope didn't bother until I needed to finish pokedex. Looks slow and weak to be honest.
