Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

      Yeeeeeeeeeeeah no. Lord no, in fact. After using my dear Panpour in the first Gym battle, it went straight into a Box to never see the light of day again. Because I'm heartless and cruel like that.

        I'm pretty sure I've only ever used them for Cut, and since Cut isn't exactly necessary, they went to the box not long after I got them.

            EEhh well, no. I caught a lilipup in my b/w journey and Lilipup vs panpour wasnt all that difficult so my pansage wasnt a nessecity. Felt kinda bad when his new residence was my PC . But Simisage is like the coolest looking of the monkeys so i trained and evolved him later for fun.

              Honestly, I refused to use it because I dislike their designs. And I felt it made it far too easy if you automatically get something that beats the first gym handed to you no matter what; not counting starters.

                I Liked my Monkey.
                I Picked Tepig, for the first time.
                I got a Pansage, and he is like a boss when he evolves into Simisage.
                Pansear is the bad monkey because i read it up and it learns no good moves and it's stats are terrible.
                Pansour OK.

                    My Monkey was usefull for when I had to get through the first gym, and still is. I do not use it as much anymore, and when I do, it's mostly just to Surf somewhere.

                      All the monkeys have the same stats.

                      Moveset wise.

                      First real attacks [Vine Whip | Incinerate | Water Gun] Panpour's attack is strongest.
                      Second Set [Leech Seed | Yawn | Water Sport] Hard to judge. Leech Seed is nice but Yawn can go a long way as well.
                      Third Set [Seed Bomb | Flame Burst | Scald] Seed Bomb and Scald are the same power wise, but Scald lowers attack through Burning. Flameburst can make up for the 10 Point difference in Double and Triple battles with splash damage.
                      Last move set [Grass Knot | Fire Blast | Brine] Fire Blast is better right off. Grass Knot depends on opponent, and Brine really shines if and only if you get them past 50% health.

                      All three have their merits, but all three are easily outclassed early in the game. You can replace Pansear with Darumaka and later Larvesta if you feel the need. Panpour is outclassed by Tympole's line which you get just a little later. Pansage is outclassed by both Petilil and Cottonee which are just after the second badge.

                      None are worth keeping past the third badge, nor did I keep mine (Pansear). I actually found my Purloin to be better than the monkey. They were cool and all, but not worth the effort to keep raising.

                      I intended on using mine (Panpour) on my main team, and I wasn't going to evolve it until it learned Crunch. But then I got a bit bored trying to train it until then, and ended up finding and using Pokémon that were better for my team. So, I just evolved it and boxed it, occasionally I'd take it out for Surf/Dive/Waterfall.

                          No use whatsoever. Mine went straight to the box.

                          Nope. I didn't know the first time I played White and tried using Pansear, but very quickly found it close to useless. BOOM. Boxed.

                            No. I don't really like the elemental monkeys. They were only good for the first gym, really.

                                Kinda. I used it to beat the gym leader, then evolved it. I've almost forgotten about him now! (I think it's rigged so you can't beat the leaders no matter what unless you get one monkey. Did I guess correctly?)

                                  I picked Oshawott, and I didn't find Pansear useful. I just caught a Darumaka instead.

                                    I found it to be the only useful Water-Type, (Chooses Snivy anyday), because I can't seem to find a good enough water Pokemon, though I do intend to make it become an HM slave like others after this second White 1 Runthrough.

                                    I got Pansear, and it was useful during the battle with Burgh. Then I evolved it to Simisear...then traded it away for a Cottonee, just to complete my Pokedex. xD

                                      I chose Panpour last year, and I only used it for the 1st gym. After that I replaced it with Tympole and it's way more useful than just a Panpour.

                                        I found Simisage pretty useful.I taught it various typed moves so thats probably why.

                                          My panpour was only useful for cut.

                                            I pretty much kicked my mokey out fairly quickly. My first play through in pokemon white I had all three starters the whole game. When I played my pokemon Black a few times,I didn't even really need the type I got.
