What made you join this club?: Mainly since i love using Steel-types in every single team i have.
What is your favorite Steel-type Pokémon? Hands down, it has to be Excadrill. My name already implies it. I love Excadrill's design and the power that he has.

Oh man I know, that was a huge let down haha. What made them think a Water-type champion was a better idea than such a cool Steel-type champion? I think Steel was a really fitting type for a champion to take - it's such a cool, solid and impressive type with that 'wow' factor needed by a champion's team. Water is such a 'lol okay here's yet another Water-type' kind of type whereas Steel is a 'wow, that Pokémon's pretty badass...' type, so it's very fitting for a champion to use. Also Aggron's coolness? Forget about it. 8D

Also welcome, shadow! :)

What made it more disappointing was we JUST fought a water specialist as the final gym leader and then they make us fight another . I would have much rather fought Steven as the champion maybe even making him stronger than he was in Ruby or Sapphire by expanding on his steel team possibly giving him even stronger Steel Pokemon!

I have to agree with this... I loved Steven as champion. Id rather face Metagross, Aggron and more awesome Steel types than Water types like Wailord. There should be more Steel Gym Leaders or E4 imo.

Agreed! But what stronger Pokémon could they really have given him? He already had Skarmory, Aggron and Metagross - weren't those the three most powerful Steel-types introduced at the time? I guess he could also have used Scizor which would beef his team up a tad, maybe throw in Forretress too, but I'm not sure they really fit in with his theme haha. Steven Stone using a mantis? Maybe not... ;p What would you guys give him?

Metagross, Magneton, Skarmory, Mawile, Aggron and Scizor

I would loved to have seen his Skarmory from Ruby and Sapphire replaced with Scizor. Yes he would have a huge weakness to fire types, but that extra Power on his team would have been fascinating to see and would have definitely presented an extra challenge for those who chose Sceptile as their starter.

Jasmine is definitely my fave Steel specialist, she's got a bit of a shy personality yet the battle with her is not to be taken lightly. For reasons as said above, you'd never even expect her to use Steel-types. Also, I love how cute her Japanese name (Mikan) sounds!

You know how when there's a test and you have those multiple choices? Usually there's one called all of the above, so can I choose that? I really like all of them actually. However if that's not the case then it's a tie between Jasmine and Steven. Both of them are very different people but I find their personalities impossible not to like. You've got Jasmine- she treats her Pokemon more than tools of war.

She cares for them, she treats them like family, she even goes out of her way to help them. In real life, I'd say its pretty damn good if you take some time out of your day to help a sick Pokemon feel better. Staying by their side is even more better. While she wasn't the most challenging gym leader I've ever faced she's just such a sweet and caring person.

And then we have Steven. The guy becomes a champion with him and his incredibly tough team. Skarmory, Aggron, all sorts of things running around. They can do serious damage and are some of the highest-leveled Pokemon in the game. And who replaces him in Emerald? A damn guy with an umbrella for his head who wants you to dance. Well done Gamefreak, well done. I applaud you. But Steven doesn't give a damn that he doesn't have his position anymore! He goes traveling around Hoenn and tries to help new trainers out. He's so laid-back and easy going along with a calm nature. He's born to be a true champion, its like in his blood. And he never gives up! Despite being defeated and replaced, he just goes to Meteor Falls to toughen himself up and wait for a challenger who is brave enough to face him. Steven, you are badass. Enough said. :)

What are you hopes for steel types in X/Y?

That they become more used by players! Steel is rather uncommon compared to the likes of fire, water, grass and electric which is rather saddening because they're a great type to use! With the introduction of fairy which counters the terrifying beasts known as dragons, steel-types will hopefully benefit from them by being counters to the latest addition. Furthermore I'm disappointed that most steel-types have average or poor speed. Yes, they're weighed down by all that metal but I want to see some lightning speed rock snakes that aren't called Steelix some time soon. That'd just be badass.

I'd also like to see futuristic-like designs! Robots and all that shizz. They really need to add a signature move if such a Pokemon came into existence, with an animation like Leer from G/S/C. If you haven't seen the move's animation it makes this screech-like noise and it looks like lasers shooting out of a Pokemon's eyes. Badass. I hated the later animations though. Seeing it happen in 3D however would just be.. undescribable. Think of the feeling you get when its the last day of school and the next day is summer holidays. Then think about eating chocolate ice-cream on a hot summer's day. That's what it feels like to witness such a move. B)

I'm fine with whatever they throw at us though. Just make it good!

They didn't give Steven extra steel types like Scizor and Forretress because those are generation 2 pokémon. And, as Alex said, Steven's team already was really strong without them.

What are you hopes for steel types in X/Y?

I'm really hoping we'll get a steel type gym leader/E4 member/champion again. Also, I'd like to see some interesting dual types involving steel. A Steel/Fire type would be awesome, and another Steel/Dark type would be cool as well. And of course I want to see some more mega-evolutions of steel types! We already have these ones:
Spoiler:

But I would love to see a MegaScizor or a MegaBisharp as well.

As for the mega steel types already announced, I don't like MegaMawile that much. It seems like all they did was add another one of those jaw-like things on her head and made some height and color changes. MegaLucario is a whole different story though. I admit, you can see that with MegaLucario all they did was add some things and made a few adjustments as well. But it still looks very different from Lucario imo, and just really. f*cking. awesome.

Your topic is good, but I'd suggest separating the questions so they stand out in one way or another. Like this:

I'll keep that in mind next time

As for answering my current topic, I have high hopes for steels this gen. We already know about Mawile and Lucario getting mega formes which will be really nice for all of us steel fanatics out there. We also have Honedge who has been revealed and I personally have high hopes for him. I feel he will be a glass cannon, but will really be useful. With an immunity to Mach Punch, neutrality to Sucker Punch, and resistance to Bullet Punch, priority moves wont be much of a factor for him.

I would also like to see a few special sweepers introduced. We have Genesect, and a few others, but the Steel type special movepool is very shallow and an expansion upon that with a few specially based steel Pokemon would really be a nice edition to this generation!

The full game isn't even out yet so it's difficult to judge where Steel-types will head in general, but Mawile getting a new lease in life (Pardon the cliche) and Ghost/steel Honedge is a good prospect.

Sweet I was waiting for this club.

Username/Nickname:
Arron13
Partner(s) - You can pick up to 2 different Partners from the list below:
Aggron and Bastiodon
What made you join this club?
Steel type is my favorite type. My favorite pokemon line comes from it and everytime I've used a steel type it is just a complete beast. My bastiodon from the first time i played pearl would never die.
What is your favorite Steel-type Pokémon?
This one is tough. My favorite line is the Aron line. I love Larions design, Aggron is a tank and i had a real connection with a aron. It was the first time I trained up a aron to an aggron and I nicknamed it Arron (which is how I came up with my username). I would have to pick Larion though. The design just makes it.

What is your favorite Steel-type Pokémon? Steelix. I remember when I first saw this thing back in Gen 2 and thought it was one of the coolest pokemon ever. Still one of my favorites today.

I do not think it was necessary, however I do think Steel types were definitely a great addition to the second generation and onward though.
