View Full Version : The terrors of a level55 Salamence.

Drake's, to be specific.
That thing ravaged me! But, then again, isn't that to be expected of a team with nothing over level 50, and two ground types(Groudon and Donphan)?
Ha ha. I suck so bad.
Tips, anyone? Help? Please?

Ice beam is your friend. Period. Teach it to one of your pokes and you should be just fine.

August 22nd, 2008, 7:28 PM
Save the fact that it was WASTED on my Mawile...

What a stupid move on my part.

August 22nd, 2008, 7:29 PM
Ah you can buy another Ice beam from the game corner invest :P whats your team anyways?

August 22nd, 2008, 7:32 PM
Donphan, 42, Starmie, 45, Groudon, 46, Mawile, 43, Blaziken, 48.

And, my tagalong, the level 18 Swablu, Alta.

I was gonna train it; changed my mind.

Teach ice beam to starmie then. I'm sure you have enough money to buy it from the mauville game corner. You could also go blizzard, but that misses quite a bit and has low pp.

..oh, you were being serious?

It knows Psychic, Thunderbolt, Surf, and Recover? What exacly would I erase anyway?
Thunderbolt=Walrein Killer.

Thats a tough decision. If you've got lotsa potions then ditch recover, but otherwise get rid of psychic. It's a good move and all, but doesn't help you much against the elite four.

Hm...I see your point. Even against Phoebe, it wasn't useful, but that was mostly to me being an idiot, and forgetting it was GHOST, not POISON.

I deserve the darwin award for that, I know.

Thanks for your help, and one more thing. What would be a good training spot?

Meteor falls is a good place to train if you go to the part past the waterfall. If not that, then victory road works as well. The 'trainers eyes' thing on your pokenav is your friend in these types of situations.

I can give you the best trick, The one I use and no one is able to touch me except kingdra!
Just go to the sky tower and catch a rayquaza, remove it's REST and replace it with a thunderbolt. Now E4 will be like battling oldale town trainers!

August 22nd, 2008, 8:21 PM
You gotta beat the e4 to get Rayquaza in Ruby.

Oh, I thought you were playing Emerald, If you have a friend who has emerald tell him to clone rare candies at the battle tower( battle frontier) and trade 'em over and give it to your pokemon. sadly I've never traded anything, because my frineds don't have a GBA, One has one but he also has emerald + He has the Same name as me.

I suggest teaching one of your pokemon an Ice type move or, teaching one of them Double Team, seeing as it's not for competitive battling

A bulky water like Swampert or even Milotic with Ice Beam will waste Salamence easily.

Ha. Taught Ice Beam to Starmie, owned the stupid dragon.
And, Steven wasn't much of a challenge.

How sad for him.
