Did you get Mega Punch or Kick to help you beat Misty? How long did you keep it on your Pokemon?

I normally did, but this time around I figured I wouldn't since I had a team that could beat Misty pretty easily. However, when I did my Charizard Solo run it was a necessity to get both of these.

Now that I think about it. If you got a Clefairy in Mt. Moon Mega Punch could be an awesome attack for it.

I usually skip out on them because either a) I don't have a Pokemon that can learn it or b) because I don't like those moves very much.

I thought one of these moves (can't remember which) to Charmeleon in FireRed, and yes, it certainly helped defeating Misty. :] In LeafGreen though, I didn't bother teaching these attacks to anyone.
keeping it captured.

I used Mega kick and Mega punch both. I mostly used to teach Mega kick Pikachu or any other Pokemon. I didn't teach Mega kick to any my starter as Mega kick is only 5 pps move. And its fast enough to be gone in a minute. So i barely teach my starter a Mega punch as it has 10 or 15 pp. And yes i used it against Misty. I forgot if it work well or not though

Actually skipped on it. I'm more on leveling or evolving my starter to 2nd evolution before battling the 1st gym. So the winning rate would be 100%.

Oh yes, I remember :3
I used to have a Pikachu (later Raichu) in my team 90% of the time, so I would teach her Mega Punch as an extra move to kick ass in Misty's gym :3 If my Pikachu would faint in battle, I always had my Nidoqueen at hand to use Mega Kick! :3

I always put one of those moves on one of my Pokemon that can learn them. An 80 base attack power before the 2nd gym is really strong, so why not? (I'm talking about Mega Punch, ofc)

I've used Mega Punch more than Mega Kick because more Pokemon are able to use that attack than Mega Kick.

Both? I usually have a nido-evolution and my starter, so I would teach mega punch to one and mega kick to another. Out of the two, I do prefer Mega Punch, though. Mega Kick misses quite a bit.
If I had a penny every time someone asked me that, I'd be one penny richer.

Those attacks are pretty great early-game, but I almost never use them.

it depends solely upon the pokemon in my party and their ability to learn such a move. MOST IMPORTANTLY, I take accuracy and power into the decision. Needless to say, I almost always choose Mega Punch. Mega Kick is more or less pointless.

On a personal note, Ive always thought those two moves should be replaced with special attacks like Fire Pun, Electric punch, Ice punch. All I'm saying is those two helpful NPCs there could at least be teaching us more skillful moves.

I usually add them on my pokemon whenever I can - I love having variety of different moves on each pokemon.
I don't care about EV's or IV's - I play for fun not competitive.
I don't own consoles - I play on emulators on my computer.

I am a fan of Criminal Minds, Crossing Jordan and some other series. I am also Harry Potter fan and Disney fan (I love Frozen!) - I also like other animes beside Pokemon.
