Actually, it had more to do with the fact that I taught it false-swipes, and didn't really see the need to switch it out.

Liek used mud slap to lower accuracy, and then Ninjask false-swiped him down.

Good stuff, that Mud-Slap.
It took over 2 hours of reloading and retries for me to catch Groudon the first time.
And that was leaving him at critical, and either Paralyzed or Sleep.

The winning run had me throwing over 30 Ultra-Balls at him...ridiculous.

you'll never be as fabulous as wallace, not even if you saved 1000 worlds. XD

I think mine has to be viridian city gym. just cause hes a huge criminal boss, but still allowed to run a gym. great job police, you're certainly making me feel safe.

Holy crap I forgot to read this for a while and a ton of new updates came along!
But slightly more on topic, I remember the Wallace gym. I'm just glad the ice wasn't of the sliding variety, or that would have been a lot more annoying.

CM156:

Question time: Of all the gyms, which one did you find to be the least believable? The idea of this water gym was just so silly, I remember laughing at it when I first played the game

ep 25: can't say I like legendaries to much, but Jirachi, Registeel, and Deoxys have always been useful in competative.

I read the Hobbit and the first 1 & 1/2 lotr books, but I never cared much for the movies. (not really a swords & sorcery books/movie guy.)

I think the most ridiculous gym was Brycen's one (B/W, 7th, ice)in Icirrus city. It's like Pryce's one from GSC, but incredibly large (there are fucking gigantic ice ramps; how do they fit inside.)

well, his gym does go into a mountain.

Let's Play: Pokemon Ruby Mini-Update 7: In which we cha cha real smooth

Off topic question time: Of all the games you played in 2011, which disappointed you the most? For me, it was Dragon Age 2. I liked DA:O, and I thought DA:2 was somewhat enjoyable. But it was a big disappointment to me. So I give it only a 0 on my rating scale (Which goes from -5 to +5). And maybe +1 on a good day.

Also, does anyone know what anime that picture is from?

wait... hes BEHIND the window? So he's OUTSIDE? Hes totally breaking rules. Also, wheres Chris Hansen?

Um... i dont know, I didnt really play too many 2011 games. i dont think I have one really.

And Im going to guess bleach, cause that looks like rukia.

He got called away on business

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. I don't really watch any anime, but I have a basic idea who Rukia Kuchiki is.

yeah, I just noticed cause of her hair. though that is probbly one of the filler episodes. Googled it, all I got was it from the bount arc.

I see. That's good to know.

Personally, I know absolutely nothing about Bleach's plot or mythos. I know a few of the characters by looks, but nothing about their personality. If I had to guess, it's a bunch of dudes fighting other dudes and supernatural beings of evil.

Im not the biggest bleach fan but to realy really REALLY basically sum it up, its about soul reapers (pretty much the good dead people) fighting that bad dead people, with humans thrown in jsut cause. If you asked someone for all the details and that up to now, you could probably fill 11 pages with posts explaining in depth.

Anime is Bleach.

And the game I was most diapointed about was Ace Combat Assault Horizon. If I ever needed an example f a series changing to pander casual gamers I will just point to this.

I love Ace Combat. I feel violated...

Before my family got the internet I always wondered who Penn and Teller were (probably from watching too much Kenan and Kel).

As for 2011, I don't really have any as I barely played any new games.

I will say that I didn't enjoy Skyrim, but I never had much faith in it anyway so it didn't come as a disappointment.

2012 is already shaping up to be an interesting year (I hope Dawn of War III is announced).

Assasins Creed Revelations I'm trying to get into the game, but it just feels so boring.

Also the anime in the picture is Bleach.

next time, don't pick an anime that's incredibly popular if you want guessing to be a challenge.

Personally, my disappointing game would be Deus ex: HR. I tried to get into it, but the gameplay isn't very good and I couldn't get into it.

I'll try to find something more obscure next time. But to be honest, I just google-imaged "Do not want" and found the best pic that way.

Shame about HR for you though. As I said, that was my GotY

Let's Play: Pokemon Ruby 27: In which we beat up a cripple

Question time: Of all the rivals in all the games, which one did you like the most? For me, I thought Silver was a good one.

Also, and this is a larger question: What team should we use for the Elite Four?

Here is what we're going up against.

I'll edit and comment again, but I think it would help if we knew all your pokemn, or at least the ones that are at the level where you could beat the elite four with them so you dont have to ground endlessly.

Actually, that's not much of a problem for me. I'm willing to do that if a pokemon can be useful in the Elite Four

but for sure i would say that flygon I know you have.

Coolio. As I said, ya'll are better at this than I am. I can also go catch specific pokemon if needed. That won't be much of a problem.

What are you using that Pelipper and Minum for? I mean, I take it that pelipper is a fly slave, and youre using minum for an electric type, but is the minum also a support/status pokemon?

The Pelipper is a Fly/Surf slave. The Minum was just the one I used for Flash so I could get through the cave.

CM156:
...

Alright. I would get rid of both, and teach your swampert Surf nd waterfall if you avent. have him also know earthquake, and I would say probably... ice beam.

~~~

then I would go with your flygon, go with crunch, earthquake, dragon claw/breath (claw does 80 phys damage with 15 pp, breath does 60 sp damage with 20 pp and 30% chance at paralysis), and fire blast/flamethrower (flamethrower for more acc, fire blast for more power and less pp).

~~~

That Cacturn will be good if it has Giga drain, faint attack, needle arm, and spikes (I would aslo make him one of your leads, so you can set up spikes [however drake wont be affacted except maybe his shelgon, so its not worth it on him]).

~~~

Magcargo for a fire type, and his rock type could come in handy even though his phys attack stat is rather... meh. teach him rockslide, flamethrower, toxic and yawn.

switch out that Machoke for a hariyama, better attack and HP and speed, but twenty less def in than machoke. have it know vital throw/arm thrust (vital throw makes you go second but always hits, armthrust goes 2-5 turns wth a 15 power each [so you can go from 30 to 75 attack], brick break, Smellingsalt (does more damage against paralyzed opponents, but does a normal 60 damage), and maybe protect?

~~~

So lets see.... thats water, ground, dragon, fire, rock, righting, normal, dark, grass, and a status poison and normal move.

i would say... either Skarmory for the flying/steel and go with aerial ace, steel wing, razor wind, and another spiker (or you could do sandstorm I suppose and the only one who will take damage would be hariyama on yur team.

~~~

Or alternatively you could go with Slakoth to be a slaking, get that bulk and power, but also that truant ability.

so its up to you really, and hwat other people say, but I would say go with that. definitely go with your flygon and teach it earthquake if you have the TM still, and if not make sure it has dig. and dump that pelipper and minum.

EDIT:

I never answered your other question of

CM156:
...

Question time: Of all the rivals in all the games, which one did you like the most? For me, I thought Silver was a good one.

...

my favorite over all is Gary in a scorched earth hack of red, because he doesnt start out as a total dick, but becomes one as you beat him more, so it makes him feel more human. But as to just the regular games... either the bianca/cheren combo of black/white or barry in Diamond/pearl/platinum.

I would like to know what you yourself are planning on using before I give my opinion on what team to use, but first, let me think about the Hoenn league members.

I won't say anything about the champion yet though.

Also I've love/hated the way Wally confronts you at the end of victory road, looks like somebody has been taken leasons from Blue.

I thought All the rivals were annoying assholes save Wally. two fight the entire game? Yes please, plus he introduced me to the Ralts family, so I couldn't hate 'im for that. Also why does every Dragon trainer use Altaria? It isn't even a dragon pokemon.

knight of some random number:
... Also watch out for Sheer Cold, I know it's accuracy is only 30% but it's still a dangerous attack, a one hit KO. ...

You also have to mention that if you're pokemon is a higher level than the user, mmoves like sheer cold wont work.

Altaria (Japanese: チルタリス Tyltalis) is a dual-type Dragon/Flying Pokémon.

I should point out that I haven't used ANY of the TMs. So that gives us a lot more room to work with.

That does.

well, i'll stick with my answer, but for sure I would keep in flygon and try to balance him maybe as a mix attacker. definitely give him earthquake though, since he cant learn it by level up i this game, and its almost a crime with his typing/stat to not have it.

EDIT: though I guess it would be nice to know which TMs you hve.

Was that helpful? There are fewer in this game than there are in Gen IV. And if I missed one that was helpful, I can always go get it

Your fourth pick is the same as yur first. do you have a pic of the items you have over Tm 29>?

TM 2 (dragon claw) is in meteor cave, if yu ant to go get that. I dont know who all can learn it outside flygon for sure, but its a good phys tm to teach pokemon and give them some more type coverage.

...

actually... with TM support you could raise a threatening gardevoir, but I dont really think you'd need one when all your other pokemon couold do it better (outside an electric type to learn thunderbolt, but its not really necessarily.

CM156:
Snip

You know, at this point I would ask all those trainers in the cave what exactly are they doing in the dark all that time standing around. I'm afraid that one of their responses will be the actually following believe it or not..

Raven: "..So, you were waiting for me in the dark.. for a battle..?"

Trainer: "Yeah! I suspected that a trainer would show up. I set up a tent, supplies, snacks, everything! And now you're here... we can finally battle!!"

Raven: "... I.. don't.. even. Why is it SO important to fight me for? Especially in the dark? What are the chances of a trainer going through here? We could.. you know, fly over the cave if we wanted to."

Trainer: "But you didn't, did you? *smirk*"

Raven: "Oh what the heck- you're right, why didn't we just fly over the cave? Forget this."

Trainer: "No, wait, WAIT!! We need to battle!! I'll never get to fight a girl in the dark like this ever again!! It's one of my fetishes!!"

I'm so sorry, it had to be said.

CM156:

Question time: Of all the rivals in all the games, which one did you like the most? For me, I thought Silver was a good one.

Silver was my favorite rival of all time. He was more than just some guy that followed you around, he was a character. His belief that the strong should dominate the weak is fascinating and makes all of his actions make sense. The strong are the only ones worthy of victory, so he must be the strongest. He takes what he wants from those weaker than him because he believes he deserves it, he demands perfection from his Pokemon because he only wants strength, he attacks Team Rocket because he wishes to prove his strength, and he treats you like crap when he loses because he is afraid to admit that he's weak.

CM156:

Also, and this is a larger question: What team should we use for the Elite Four?

Ooh, this is gonna take some thought.

Swampert is definitely in there, and I'd give it Surf, Ice Beam, Earthquake, and Hydro Pump.
I always highly reccomend a Gardevoir with Psychic, Shadow Ball, Thunderbolt, and Calm Mind. Love Gardevoir.
Flygon is also a strong choice. For moves, I'm thinking Crunch, Earthquake, Dragonbreath, and Flamethrower.
Cacturne with Needle Arm, Giga Drain, and a decent Dark attack would be good.
Magcargo can be dangerous with Flamethrower, Rock Slide, Toxic, and...uh...maybe Yawn.
And finally, a fighting type. Hariyama would probably work better than Machoke, but either one's a good bet. Not really sure on what moves would be good though.
