    Yes. They seemed creative with everything, from the moves to the manner of evolving. When they do that, the anime physics are always disregarded.

      And it's actually annoying as most of the kids today watch anime and they actually thought the informations that they would get are useful and helpful in the games too! 8D

        well. I am guilty of that once. I once waited for the sprinklers to come on during my first yellow play. But yeah, anime today are giving more false info to kids.

          In the games, it actually depends on the level of your Pokemon and of course the type. In the anime, whatever type you are, you can defeat a Pokemon. XD

            Things are getting a bit spammy, so I'll start a new topic:
            Which of the TM moves from the original games do you like/dislike the most? Would you like to see some of them make a comeback?
            With me, I like that Double-Edge was a TM. I really would like it to make a comeback, so that way any physical-attacking Normal-type can get some very effective STAB. Also, how about Tri-Attack? Again, STAB on Normal-types, this time for those who use Special Attack.

            Yup.

            Funny how we got from talking about Charizard vs Snorlax to why we can hit ground types with electric types on anime.

            (on that matter, I think it will be a very closely contested tie or very narrow win to either side. While Snorlax may be a tank and a powerful/agile battler, has Charizard's sheer power is unparellel.)

              Yeah.

              On topic:

              Tri Attack. Only. For me it is the only attack worth Tm'ing again, since it could be pretty deadly.

                  Pretty neutral here, since it gives more slots for other Tm's. For Tri Attack however, the absence of a move tutor for it really limits it pool distribution.

                  Points have been updated. Shijo, this includes your points for using a userbar.

                  Shijo, having Counter as a TM again would be a great idea. While in-game, predicting certain attacks are difficult, when it comes to competitive play, you can relatively easily predict whether your opponent's next move will be physical or special. Though, Counter is widely distributed through breeding.

                  Members, remember that event I mentioned? Well, I will now tell you that the event will be announced this Tuesday. That is, Tuesday by my time (EST) for those of you in other parts of the world.

                    Excited for the event!

                    Using counter competitively is still a sight for me to see. despite its usefulness and such, Counter is easily dismissed for priority attacks such as the new Bullet punch (especially on Life Orb Technician STABbed Scizor.)

                    Out of the ones that aren't currently available as TMs, I found many of those moves to be useless compared to what we have now, to be honest. Moves like double edge, tri attack, and counter still aren't bad moves, though.

                    Counter is especially effective when you teach it to certain pokemon, such as Wobbuffet, but I do agree that it's not much useful in a general sense.

                    I have just updated the points because our member 2Cool4Mewtwo has contributed us some new userbars, a total of 3. 2Cool4Mewtwo, at 20 points each, that means you just got 60 bonus points. Thanks a lot! Members, those userbars have been added to the OP. Feel free to use them if you want.

                      IIRC, flash is an HM but what the hell. it is really a useless move. Why the hell would one bother with accuracy rather than boost your Atk or SpA?

                          compared to splash, at least flash has an effect.

                            I can't actually choose one as majority of them are useful and I can't actually think of a TM that isn't even worth it at all. :/

                            Points have been updated.

                            Snivy063, there are a few original TMs I can think of off the top of my head that I don't like. First, there's Fissure and Horn Drill. OHKO moves rely way too much on luck. For just that reason, they are banned by most competitive rules. Then, there's Teleport. I mean... really? The only purpose it has in battle is to run from wild battles. It does nothing in trainer battles. And then Metronome. Again, it relies on luck.

                              I actually like metronome flavor-wise. I just do not know why.

                              And yeah, I am not that a fan with the OHKO moves.

                              o yeah. A new userbar.

                              I will attach it. I accept evolutionary requests! Just tried it out with the first ever pokemon in the dex!

                              miltankRancher, your userbar has been added to the OP, and points given.

                              We just had our first points shop purchase. NightOfRemorse had Willow the Vulpix upgraded to shiny. I got to test my imaging skills once again!

                              Just as a suggestion for this club... an "Elite Status" where you'll have a star next to your name (ex. 2cool4mewtwo★), marked as a dedicated member of this club, that costs 1000 points to buy. Right now there won't be many benefits besides a "dedicated" status in this club (and another addition that I'll mention later in this paragraph), but it may serve as a benchmark for some of the "upper-ended" future updates to this club. Current benefits may be: name color change available in the front page for additional 100 points. (ex. 2cool4mewtwo★)

                              Also, owner's starting 50 points shouldn't be mentioned now... I think enough time has passed by for it to be ignored.


                              Spoiler:

                              More userbars. (not as good as my earlier ones, but still... )

                              Thanks for the userbars, 2Cool4Mewtwo! They have been added, and points given. Also, I added your points for using a userbar. (You only get them now because of a goof I made accidentally removing the userbars after I would have given the points.)

                              Your ideas are interesting. I'll think about the "Elite Status" feature. If used, it will not go unrewarded. I removed the Owner starting points already, as you suggested.

                                I love that idea! If that is ever implemented, I will be going to buy that really.
