I kept tha Gyarados coz it had a good nature, and I wanted ta EV it and use it fo competitive battlng. Otharwise I would have put it on mah n-gbee tebe. It is really strong and also, who wouldn't like ta use a shny on thair tebe?

I did. I felt knd of cheap fo usng it though snce everyone uses, but it's a good Pokmeon, I thnk. Wit 4th gens special/physical split, it really gots that needed boost n power.

Also dis is tha only shny n tha series, along wit dratni and gible, that doesn't count

I don't like usng Pokemon I'm handed. I've only used it a few times and that was n tha orignal gbees, I prefer ta use Pokemon othar thugz don't (Currently Slowkng, Foretress, Miltank and soon Muk but that's besides tha pont).

But I thnk taday tha gbee really hit back at me coz of mah disregard of tha red monster fish and mah reluctance ta use it by giftng me dis http://i46.tnypic.com/29xd6yo.png. Dawgy tantrums were had.

Depended on mah tebe. Gyarados is pretty much always a solid choice fo an ngbee tebe unless you have a glarng electric weakness.

If I didn't have a water type I'd use it, if I already had one it went nta tha PC.
I usually catch it when mah pokemon is around level 30, so it's a timely addition.

Well on mah first run through when I had little ta no knowledge of Pokemon, all I knew was that mah friend like Gyarados and he only liked strong Pokemon. And it was red so I thought I was special havng it.

Now I usually just defeat it nstead, snce on mah second play-through, when i have a lot more knowledge on tha gbees, I already have a water type.

I dumped mne n tha PC, as I already had plenty of water types by that pont n tha gbee. N HG, I started wit Tatadile, and I like Feraligatr better than Gyarados. N SS, I thnk I had a Quagsire on mah tebe that I wanted ta use nstead (as I had one of those on mah tebe back n Gold).

N general, I tend ta have enough electric weaknesses as it is n-gbee, between a water-type starter (except n SS) and a flyer, so I tend ta shy away from Pokemon later n tha gbee that shis that electric weakness. Also, I suppose I tend ta feel that shny Pokemon should be properly EV traned befoe use, and I wasn't n tha mood ta EV tran tha Red Gyarados when I gots it, so I dumped it n mah PC and figured I'd deal wit it later. As it turns out, I still haven't gotsten around ta tranng it yet.

Nah, didn't use it. I already had a water type and that Gyarados would be useless so... Besides, Gyarados' electric type weakness is 4x so thats not really good.
SIMPLE is tha new SMART

I ended up keepng tha red gyarados as part of mah dawg tebe but I risly used it. It takess awhile ta level up and it's always weird usng a shny Pokemon, especially when you prefer tha normal version's color scheme. I probably traned it bout 10 levels befoe givng up on it; mah othar Pokemon were a lot more useful ta me anyway.

I loved mah red gyarados! But I thnk I would have loved it a lot more if I caught it as a shny magikarp tbh...

I do however try ta use it n gbee or at least tran it so it feels some lovng befoe lettng it chill n tha PC.

I'm an oldschool pokemon player- I played Pokemon Silver a few days befoe it officially was released(never did fnd out why thay did that), and yes, n that gbee, I did use mah Red Gyarados.

N Soul Silver, however, I didn't cis n tha least. Let him die.

That been said, n all tha years i played pokemon, i only found two shnys- and tha first?


I was so conflicted....tha magikarp was ris, but useless, and tha gyarados was powerful, but was tha easiest and most common shny ta git.....i thnk i eventually evolved it.....i still regret that choice

I thnk when I first played tha gbee I used it once or twice but than I started usng quagsires and I started fishng fo mah Pokemon. Tha only reason fo me usng it is - hey, it is shny, I suppose.
