if you know what moves the pokemon can learn, it's not that hard to predict what moves they'll use, after some practice.

Just trading for now...if you want a specific Pokemon, I can most likely get it for you, for a fair price. It's actually really easy to make a trade with me.

But, whether the most of players choose more or less the same 4 moves for their Pokemon? or whether we would be sufficient to just know what the moves are almost certainly exist in a Pokemon? (I never do competitive battle with human.)

Eh. Competitive battling is a lot of stuff, but it's definitely not that hard once you get the hang of it and all.

Then, what else do you think is also important in competitive battling?
Are legendary pokemon really overpowering other pokemon, or people just think using legendary is unfair since their base stats is higher?

40. Battlers base tiers on both stats and on how they play in the metagame.

Basically what Dondon said. You may use Legendaries in competitive, but they have to be in the right tier. If you try to use an OU Legend in the UU tier, people won't be happy.

I see.. in competitive battling we also need to know the tier of each pokemon, wow, competitive battling is more complex than I expected. Thank you for tutoring me, it's helpful. =)

Donavann, since when do you say "hood"? xD

It is a complex game though with a lot of mathematics if you take EV training into account. u_u;

"Under the hood" is a figure of speech, Derk, and is a phrase I've used all my life, just not very often.

Good IVs are harder to obtain than good EVs, since they're set for each Pokemon and cannot be changed.

Of course I know it's a figure of speech, I live in the ghetto where people used to say it all the time. xD; I just never expected you to say it. ;___; You seem like the kind of person that would use more eloquent vocabulary and avoid usage of slang and/or figures of speech that relate to slang. xD;

And yeah, when it comes to IVs, anyone's best bet would be RNGing, since breeding for good IVs take like, forever.

48. The figure of speech refers to a car engine (under the hood of a car), not the ghetto. :\

If you luck into a perfect one, though, I think it's harder to find than a Shiny. Too lazy to do the math, though.

Could be both, d'nya.

I have yet to find a shiny for fifth gen. Of course, I haven't been playing it lately.

The good news is that I just got Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, so hopefully my interest would come back as soon as I get around to playing that game. The problem is that...well, I only have my Wii as a console to play GC games, and my Wiimote broke, so that can't happen for a while. :(

Good news again, is that I ordered one off of ebay! :D; the half-bad news is that...well..its from another country, so it might take a while :(

5. Did you pay more than $25 for the remote and its shipping, Derk? 'cause I got a used one for that much at a local game store.

Am I too much of a Pokemon TCG nerd when all I want to do this weekend is build decks that would be fun concepts but wouldn't win any tournaments?

Eh, probably....I mostly collect Pokemon cards to add to my collections, & I usually never use them in a card battle.

Anyway, I got to get back to PKmn Black ver, & starting looking for some Latias on the GTS servers.

I think you all should go do WTP.

I haven't touched my White Version. I've had no need to, really. D; haven't has much to touch any Pokemon games. I played Colosseum for the challenge event the other month, but that was basically it since April or so.

But I don't want to check & make my computer lag.

How come White ver. is more popular than Black? I'll never understand.
Anyway, where are you in Colosseum? (Also reminds, I got to finish Colosseum. Started in 2005 & haven't finished since)

Check and not make your computer lag? Just click one image at a time or something. xD;

It was mainly because of the White only pokemon. Least, that's why I got White and not Black.
I was at the Regal Colosseum tower, or whatever the hell the place is called.
