I do hunt the Audino species into extinction for the purpose of my own Pokemon's experience (particularly in B2/W2), but I voted Nay in the poll because it does make me a tad guilty.

Besides, in B/W I used an Audino on my team! It was just too cute. I hope in X/Y it gets an evolution with better stats though; don't get me wrong, I liked using it! But if it could have a tad bit more offensive potential, that'd be lovely. Besides, I want to use Audino again!

I'm very guilty of hunting down Audino. Especially considering they use Heal Pulse and save you from having to run to the Pokemon every 4 Audinos or so.

Although tbh, I can't see why anyone would grind the hard way when hunting Audinos is a much easier and quicker way of leveling up your Pokes (assuming you're not EV training).

Sometimes I'll "hunt" for Audinos to get the exp. but usually i just defeat them by chance. When i see rustling grass, i'm always hoping for a cool pokemon...then, when Audino shows up, my disappointment demands a sacrifice, hence, Audino

Yes, but only when the Pokémon I'm using is fully EV trained, as Audino gives 2 HP EVs, which I may or may not need.

What good are Audino, if not for the experience?

Whenever I'm in the need for some grinding, they're my go-to targets.

Just a few related questions here, do you think it was right for GF to make the cutest Pokemon the one with the most exp? Do you think that promotes a bad message to the public given that Plasma was p much the Pokemon version of PETA? Or shouldn't the two issues intertwine?

Uhh, I'm not sure if it was right or not but I do think it's funny because you know how people don't want to "kill" cute things but in order to get that exp you need to.

I don't think it promotes a bad message to the public necessary because if you go that route I'm pretty sure there are tons of things in Pokemon that would "promote a bad message" or you can look at a lot of things like that.

In the interests of convenience, I faint any Audino I see. I'm impatient and I detest grinding, so having such a great source of experience points really helps me get through the game. That being said, sometimes if I'm in a blue mood, I do feel a little bit guilty whenever I down an Audino...

As for Game Freak making one of the cutest Pokemon in the game one of the highest sources of experience, it's supposed to be a matiarch / support Pokemon, so they fit pretty well with each other... being cute is most probably just collateral damage.

That's a good point!

Actually guys... isn't there a deeper message you can take from it, like, maybe that pink = female (the connotation, and given it works with Nurse Joy etc, and it + Chansey are nurses, and nurses are portrayed as female), and therefore you slay the female rather than a male for more exp, the reverse of spiders, which actually is a bad message? Or do you think by that it's defying the gender norms? Thoughts anyone?

I don't like to do it, but i do anyway if i need to grind a little.

Why'd they have to make it adorable!? I feel guilty after every one i defeat, sometimes going "Sorry dude..." after each. Why couldn't something else have been the EXP Pinata, like Emolga. I have a serious hate for Emolga.

I use them a lot. If I didn't have them in BW2 I wouldn't have beaten half of the gyms.

Well yeah, the thing yields high XP... so I do KO them whenever they pop up

I pwned a level 2 Purrloin w/ the level 100 Deoxys I got for free today from a wifi event, these things aren't real so I'm not going to have mercy on the cuter pixelated characters

I also made sure to use Nasty Plot 3 times 1st so that it would be about -9,999% of the things HP when I did hit it lol

In a semi related note, I have a roach problem in my bathroom, and I think I die a little bit inside every time I have to step on baby roaches, but I know if I don't they will grow to be the big nasty ones, and have 1,000 more babies that will also grow into big nasty ones, and come into my bedroom and crawl on all my stuff, etc.

Actually it bothers me a little even to kill the big ones when they're just in my bathroom, not as much as the baby ones though

But it's simply unreasonable to try to scoop them up and throw them out, there's too many and they'd get back in anyway and if I don't keep their population under control my house could end up looking like this :

And I ain't letting that happen!

So, I mean... the point of all of that rambling was that, while I show no mercy to cute pokemon because they aren't real, and I still don't show mercy to real life creatures.... that at least I do feel kind of bad about it and I'm not totally heartless

I could honestly care less x( Audino gives up so much exp in death so I figure taking them out is worth it to quickly level up your team. Audino grinding+lucky egg= EASY LEVEL UPS. Thats one fault I had with gen 4, especially heart gold. It was way too time-consuming to level up your pokemon.

I don't really train against Audino, instead I train against the E4.
I usually don't hurt them as I kept running away from them in order to find those "5%" Pokemon in the rustling grass.
Although I do pity it somehow...

I like Audino, i even catch them whenever i can. of course, until now i didn't know that they gave a lot of EXP... Also, i was seriously scared that its simple beam changed my Pokemon's ability permanently.

EDIT: so do i like hurting this pokemon? i guess i'd just say... Audino.

I'd usually say Nay, but when that cruel harlot throws that brutal heal pulse attack at me I can't help but have my Pokemon bash its face against the pavement.

I really don't like Audino. It gives good XP, so even if I liked it, I'd still mercilessly bash it

I could never accept Audino into my heart. I just cling to my memories of Chansey and Blissey, and there is no more room in my heart for another pink nurse pokemon. So yeah, every time the grass shakes, I pray that it's an Audino for me to destroy. The extra EXP is just a bonus.

Well the debate comes down to this. What do you desire more? Carrying around a fat pink chansey wannabe or... A little extra EXP and, if your creative enough, a new hood ornament!

I've found Audino be too hard to find for the purpose of leveling. I only battle them if I encounter them during the adventure. You actually don't need to grind a whole lot in Gen V because there are plenty of trainers in the game and the Lucky Egg is obtained during the story.
