If you have access to FRLG, I would HIGHLY suggest you use Butterfree over Beautifly. Its Compoundeyes ability makes it a good in-game lead. I would also take Shuckle over Dustox. At any rate, I would dump Volbeat and replace it with Shedinja. Also, make sure to teach Armaldo Water Pulse. Makes it a good Fire counter, as Fire is only normal damage.

IMO this question would be more like an emulation sector question, but anyhow.

You need to firstly open up the ROM which you wish to make the new .sav file for, then, go to Options -> Import -> Gameshark Snapshot and click on the snapshot you downloaded (download history works well here), it will give you a yes or no box telling you any previous saves for that ROM will be deleted and wishes to know if you will continue, do so and you will now have the save file you downloaded working.

@Leaf, yeah it happens, it's normal, wherever you go pokemon that can be found in that area will cry, which was good if you didn't know where to catch legendaries cause occasionally you'd catch their cry too. But basically it's just there to give you an idea of what kind of pokemon you can find in that particular route.

@Jumpluff
Um just no, fire pokemon are in short supply as it is, you wont find any fire pokemon till about the 4th badge. So unless you picked Torchic sorry you're out of luck.

If you started with Mudkip, you will have no use for a Fire-type. They are totally over-rated anyway.

Althought that's an opinion, i agree Mudkip is a really good starter and if you did pick him he should serve you well.

But yeah you'll have to wait till Lavaridge for any hopes of getting a fire pokemon

Wrong. You can catch fire-types in the cave to the right of the fourth gym.

Your right.

The fire-types in this game are found mostly in the Magma Hideout or the cave on your way to Fallobar Town. Torkoal and Slugma are found there.

I disagree. Their weaknesses far outweigh any strength they have. They are weak to Ground, Rock, and Water moves while Fire moves are strong against Bug, Grass, Ice, and Steel. Bug and Grass are easily covered by Flying, there are only 16 Ice-types (6 of which are also Water and only 3 are mono Ice), and Steel is easily covered by Ground. The reason you don't find useful Fire-types in RSE is mainly because there is no use for them. You can call it my opinion, but there is a good reason why most competitive teams are without a Fire-type.

Yes, I agree with you that in R/S/E there is no use for them. As a replacement you could use the stronger flying and/or ground types; however, they still have their uses in and out of competitive battling.

Heatran is used commonly amongst competitive battling teams.

I know, but Shane was saying how fire types were no common among competitive teams. He was wrong and I correctly him.

There is no "best team". The AI is so bad that as long as you give them a sensible moveset, ANY collection of Pokemon will be successful.

That said, for RSE I have always been partial to Swampert/Swellow/Gardevoir. Those three rip through the game the fastest because it doesn't require them to be a very high level. I completed the game with them in their mid-40's.

Natures have a major impact on a Pokemon stats. Different natures raise the stats of a stat and lower the stats of another. Some (4) don't raise or lower anything (avoid those; serious is one of them). Here's a quick list of natures and what stats they increase/decrease: http://www.smogon.com/dp/natures/ .

Here is a quick chart for you to look at whenever you have questions regarding natures of your Pokemon.

Serious is a neutral ability, so it is niether good nor bad; just not used that often in the Pokemon world unless you are a casual trainer, breeder, or coordinator.

Allright thanks.

yeah I knew about the neutral ones, but my chart said that the serious nature vaires between pokemon.

It's probablly just outdated.

- Thanks

I have a question to ask : Swampert is going to be my starter Pokemon for Hoenn. I was thinking of using this set for the Battle Frontier:

@ Leftovers
Relaxed Nature
252 HP // 252 Defense
- Surf
- Earthquake
- Toxic
- Protect

Tell me what you think of it.

Why would you use Waterfall on Swampert when Surf is more powerful and just as accurate?

Because Surf will also hurt your ally in a team battle. Plus, Waterfall has a 20% Flinch effect, whereas Surf will do double damage to someone underwater.
