So anyway, today they let us play without legendaries. And it was a BIG difference. one trainer I played, five of his pokemon were weak to ground type moves. Swampert used earthquake on him three times, and then I had won. Most of these people are nothing without a bunch of legendaries.

Thank You. I Hate Noobs Whose Whole Team Relies On Ubers. Take That Away, Their Nothing. Then They Think They Are Great Trainers, All While Using Ubers.

I did meet a few good ones up there, though. I found out from one battle that I need a better pokemon with fire moves. These Bronzong and Metagross are killing me. didn't help I actually ended up battling him twice, so that was two losses on my docket.

Ah, what a shame. Well, they just don't make noobs like they used to.

A good chunk of my battles were pretty easy, though. I still can't get over that one guy trying to use thunderbolt on a swampert.

Hehe, most n00bs won't know the elemental chart will make improper generalizations.

It's a glorious, new, legendary-free age for us competitive trainers! :D

So, they banned the use of legendaries?
That's kind of dumb, they should make it so that there's two different leagues, one with legendaries and one without. If they don't want us to use legendaries competitively they shouldn't have put them in the game. I understand that legendaries are a kind of pokemon on steroids, and should not be used constantly, but they have a place.

Also, I would like to say, that some of the combinations in DP surprised me, like Empoleon being water/steel and Infernape being fire/fighting (well, I kind of expected it that they would be that), it was very interesting how they tossed up the original rock/paper/scissors style of play.

Legendaries are really only there as rewards for completing story arcs. <.<;

They're trophies. Trophies you can use for not much more than to sweep in-game trainers and the Elite Four.

Hey, I feel bad now, I didn't use any legendaries when I beat the elite 4. I even took deoxys off my team.

Well, it really doesn't matter what you use to beat in-game enemies, as long as you win. It's when doing any serious PvP battling that legendaries become a no-no.

I still want to make a team of 'cute legendaries' uxie, mew, mespirit, azelf, manaphy, and celebi.
I don't expect to go anywhere with them, they're all psychic which means it's easily picked apart. But I think it'd be funny.

I'm glad to hear that a ban on ubers is happening .
It get's old when you face uber teams because it could mean a very slim chance on winning.

Well in Gardenia's thread "NO MORE UBERS". We addressed this same topic. Everyone there agreed that there should be a seperate tournament for legens only. Pokemon that you can't use aren't worth catching.

If you want an uber tier competition, organize an unofficial tourney of ubers for yourselves in D/P, or something.

This is an Uber ban and not a Legendary ban, right? They've banned just Ubers before, so I hope that's the case. I REALLY want to use a Cresselia once I get this game.

As if it makes a difference. Legendaries altogether should be banned, whether they are or not at this point.

Legendaries like Azelf are quite a bit weaker than legendaries like Lugia. Garchomp, Dragonite, Metagross, Tyranitar, Salamence are up there with the weaker legendaries, so banning all legendaries and leaving them alone is...odd (couldn't think of a better word... >.>).

As I've said before, I consider legendaries nothing more than trophies for completing story arcs you can use to sweep the in-game trainers and the Elite Four.

You guys know what? People use ubers for a reason.

Not everyone has the patience to EV train or buy TM's and crap.

Not everyone feels like ogling at stats and natures.

Some people want to play the game.

Not everyone bought the game to do a lot of complicated math and stuff.

So stop saying whoever uses ubers are n00bs.

They're as much of pokemon players as any of you.
