Whenever I play main series games I play like a little kid. Why yes, I do have a Starmie with 3 water moves on it!

Even in-game, having 3-4 moves of the same type on the same mon is bad. As much as I hate to admit it, I had a Vaporeon that had both Water Pulse and Surf.

In my elementary school days, I was guilty of keeping Mud Shot on my Swampert, refusing to replace it with Earthquake, even. It also had Surf and Dive to make navigation easier. I thought Mud Shot looked cool, tbh.

I also used TMs randomly on my Pokémon, like giving Rock Tomb to Cradily when it already had a stronger option in AncientPower.

Yeah I know, it's terrible. It's like...Brine, Surf, and Waterfall too. Nothing even special. I should teach it Psychic or something.

Because of the challenge I'm doing on White several of my Pokemon are guilty of this. Tepig/Pignite is going to have Flamethrower, Flame Charge, and Fire Pledge. Oshawott has Water Gun/Hydro Pump, Razor Shell, and Aqua jet... etc.

And yeah they're all mixed as well because of the challenge (kudos to those who know what type of challenge I'm doing from that information).

    Sometimes I hate it when people reject my story because it has "Pokemon".

      What's the story about, Volcanix769? Is it for your Gen VI prediction?

        It's in Fan Fiction and Writing that's called "Pokemon Johto Adventures". Luckily I rarely do progress. My body's losing motiv gas in my brain though I wrote a summary of my pending chapter.

          So it's on a fanfic website? Are these people who rejected it non-Pokemon fans?

            Yeah. Some focus on art rather than them. I post it here too.

            When I look back at my old games I can't help but cringe at the movesets I used. None of them contain stat boosting moves, because I used to think they were worthless and if a Pokémon could learn a move like Fissure, it'd have it.

            Haha who cares about that when you're little? As long as you had fun. I try not to mix competitive battling into just playing a game casually.

              I use stat boosting moves, but rarely... I guess it really comes down to if the Pokemon I'm using is strong enough without them.

                Using stat boosting moves is a gamble when you're using a fragile speedster or a glass cannon. Only Mighty Glaciers, Jack of all Trades, Stone Walls, and Lightning Bruisers can pull those off well without getting OHKO'd.

                  ...Gyarados can lean Defog..?

                  *googles*

                  Are you sure it wasn't Waterfall or Pelipper?



                  Also I love how you can google almost anything Pokémon related and the Bulbapedia page is first.

                      I know one, and its Feebas, which can only learn light screen. I feel thats its weird if a Pokemon knows Light Screen, but doesn't know reflect and vice-versa.

                        Hey, call me crazy but I've just had a dream about the Pokemon generation 6 being announced and as a tease there was a picture of a domino-like Pokemon that evolves into a dice O_O fantasy dream or expected reality?

                          A domino/dice Pokemon would make a really interesting design, but it'll also bring controversy within the fanbase and there "superior" taste for design rather than battle performance.

                          That would actually be really cool, I'm imagining it like folding up to become a die?

                            Not to be a party pooper but pokemon that have a direct resemblence to human inventions or creations sort of make me go: ".....sigh"

                            It would be kind of similar to the Vanillite evolution line in a way but it would be a good idea.

                              Would that include the Magnemite line and Voltorb line too?

                              I agree entirely. Especially things like Foongus/Amoonguss where they supposedly evolved to look like Pokéballs to fool trainers but that would imply they never existed before Pokéballs, most likely a quite recent invention given the technology involved, were invented and that they instantly changed to look like them. And the ice-cream cone Vanillite and the rubbish bag Trubbish, don't even get me started...
