    Nosepass the nosy compass! Did you bother catching him? Impressed by Roxanne's Nosepass? Rock Smash, and all.

    Yes, but only for the Pokedex. By the time you get Rock smash you forget about it.

    Yeah, once. Haven't got him in my last playthrough of Emerald, I just realised. Might have to go back and look. But yeah, he's only good for Pokédex, and you forget about him by the time you have Rock Smash.

    I caught a Nosepass in Pokémon Emerald. It was very hard for me to encounter it, though, because every time I went searching for it, a bunch of Geodude used to show up. I used to train this Pokémon a lot, because I thought that I'd be able to evolve it once it got to level 50. Sounds silly, I know. xD When I was finally able to figure out that it doesn't evolve, I traded it with my friend. She needed this Pokémon in order to fill up her Pokédex.

    I did catch a Nosepass, but purely for dex filler.

      Nosepass is a quirky little guy, not the best in battle. He might make a cool travel companion.

        Nosepass learns Thunder Wave. I don't understand why or how. It's a rock type.
        What would I like to see in the future? A few things, actually.
        1) A trio of ROM hacks [gen1, gen2, gen3] that, aside from the generation, are pretty much identical: You start in Kanto and post-elite four you travel through Johto as it would have been "3 years ago".
        2) A demake of Heart Gold / Soul Silver. Possibly using Fire Red as a base.
        3) An official Pokémon game, following the standard "gotta catch 'em all" format, but aimed more at the older players.

        Roseanne's was a pain in the butt to beat even with Double Kick from Combusken. She would lower my speed with Nosepass's Rock Tomb and then use potions to recover damage which gave her more time to defeat me. Overall, Nosepass is just an OK pokemon. I am not fond of his design at all, but he is a good Pokemon defensively.

        I've only caught Nosepass to fill up my Pokedex. Never used it before.

        @Lucky1Yena Although it's a rock-type, it probably is able to learn Thunder Wave as it's a magnetic Pokemon, which means it's connected to electricity in a way.

          I did catch Nosepass, but simply to fill my Pokedex. I pick my Pokémon team based on looks and I'm not a fan of his design. He could be really powerful for all I know, but I still wouldn't use him in battle.
          I don't use "uber" Pokémon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.

          I've never even considered using Nosepass on my team. It's just one of those Pokemon that 'oh hey it's okay' but if I wanted a Rock pokemon on my team there are still many other Rock Pokemon I have yet to use. Especially since I don't use Rock types often on my team.

          Maybe one say, if I'm running out of Rock Pokemon I'll use it. But until then it will just be a Pokemon that exists but have not been used by me.

          I didn't know where to get him til way after the point where I would have raised one and added it to my team. I have used it on a team before, and it's eh. It's great for stalling, though.

            I used one once and tried to play through the game with it but it wasn't worth it so I boxed it. It was difficult as all hell to find, though. The time I spent looking for one is really disproportional to the time I spent wanting to use it once I had it.

            I haven't used Nosepass simply because it's a stalling/wall Pokémon and those are boring as heck to use in-game. It's like trying to train a Chansey or a Shuckle - they're decent for competitive battling but they're awful to use as Pokémon for an in-game team. I'd be willing to give it a try to see if I'm wrong since his offensive stats aren't drastically bad, btu there are countless other Pokémon that I'd want to try before Nosepass. I caught one for Pokédex completion but that was it haha.

            Caught? Yes. Did it cause a lot of anger and frustration as the darn thing wouldn't stay in its Pokeball? Definitely yes! I was never a fan of Nosepass' design so I didn't use him, but I was always a Pokemon collector so having it in my dex was a must.

              Yes, but it's extremely hard to use thanks to its low stats, so I usually catch it just for the pokedex.

                I would have used it if I knew where to find it back then. I may use it in my next play through however.

                  It's a good first gym Pokemon. Along with Onix and Miltank and stuff. But once your Pokemon develop a move pool they are practically worthless. I've never caught a Nosepass and I'm not sure if I ever will. However, a solo run with one would be pretty cool.

                    No , because I don't like Nosepass as in my opinion it is too slow in battles as well as with average moves. Though it's evolution provides some decent results but that's another story

                      I've caught it when I first played RSE.
                      I thought it'd be a strong Pokémon.
                      But I was wrong, it's extremely bad Pokémon in my team.
                      I ended up to use it as a Rock Smasher.

                        Never caught one. I was too young at the time to really care about stats, all I knew was that Roxanne beat me quite easily every time I went up against her at first.

                          Actually yes, I have captured it a couple of times. But only for filling the pokedex, it never was a Pokemon that intrigued me.

                            LOL, it looks a BIT cute at first, and I did catch it but only for dex filler. But I would definitely never use it, his evolution is just ugly.

                              Nope didn't bother until I needed to finish pokedex. Looks slow and weak to be honest.
