Yeah the Black Omen sort of vanishes and then you get thrown into the battle right away. I didn't know about the Magus theme, I didn't have Magus in my party like I said before. I had Chrono, Ayla and Frog with me.Crono and Frog... of course...
Why would you not want to have these guys in your team when you play the game for the first time. As for the third party member, Ayla or Magus are both awesome caracters and I can understand why you would choose Ayla over Magus. She has very good physical damage, good physical tech attacks (like Crono with Confuse) and her double techs are kick ass :) Magus is still very helpful as he can use lightning, fire, ice and shadow. You will like to play with Magus again, just to get the awesome feeling of pwning someone with Dark Matter !!!
Yeah like I said before, statwise Ayla was probably the best character I had. Except for Magic and Magic Defense, she had most people covered in all the other stats. Also, Falcon Hit is a great attack against bosses with multiple parts. They always line up horizontally so you can always hit all of them in one attack.
Next time I might try a different party though. I think I should've used Magus more (he only had 4 techs learned), and I think I'll try Robo as well. For the third member maybe... Marle or Lucca but I might stick to Crono as well.
I think I should try those triple tech rocks as well next time. I haven't used them at all in my first run.
Well it kinda sucks if you selected three techs already and then you find out that they counter with that. I think something like that happened to me as well with some other boss; I didn't know he countered physical attacks or something, so I just quickly selected a normal attack for all three of my characters. Then my entire party got hit three times by some counter attack =/Yup. From this point in the game I stopped selecting all my attacks right at the beginning and took my time a little more :P
Yeah eventually I decided to first have one character attack and wait with the other two. Just to play it safe.
Isn't that the soccer game with Mario for the Wii? I remember me and some friends were considering buying that game, but we didn't in the end. It looked fun to me though.It's a fun little game. You really should get it only if you can buy it for less then 30 bucks. It's a good little game, but you won't be playing it forever.
Yeah it seemed more like a fun multiplayer game to me. Just like Mariokart and SSB, it's fun with more players, but if you play it alone you'll probably get bored with it quickly.
Oh alright. I don't play those types of games often, but I might check it out in the future then.I suggest using Donny :P
Donatello? He is the one with the stick right?
Well probably because it's a very good and very complex RPG game :)Which one?
All the Pokemon games :) Although they really get complex after gen 2 like I said before.
Complex mostly after the second gen games when they introduced nature's and changed the IV's and EV's system.I didn't get that part :P
Well you know how the first two generation games work right? You just level them up and eventually they will evolve and their stats will grow etc.. Pretty standard for an RPG.
Natures, EVs and IVs have a big influence on the stat growth though. Pokemon can have all kinds of natures and a nature will boost one stat for +20%, but will bring another down for -20%. This can be very beneficial, but also very hindering. If you're training an Alakazam for example, he is a psychic Pokemon who mostly relies on Special Attack. So it's good to have a +20% bonus in that area and preferably a -20% in Attack (because he doesn't have any physical attacks anyway). A bonus in Speed, Special Defense, Defense or HP can be good too, but it kinda depends on how you want to use him and what attacks you teach him.
IVs are set and they will automatically boost a Pokemon stats. These differ for every Pokemon individually, so two Rattatas of the same level don't have to be equally strong. Of course it's best to have max IV's in all stats, but you gotta be very lucky to get a Pokemon like that. You can do some stuff with breeding, but I'm not sure how that works.
EVs are effort values and you can get them by defeating other Pokemon. For every Pokemon you get different EVs, like 1 Speed EV for a Rattata. You can only get 256 EVs per stat and 512 in total I thought. So you can max out two stats if you like, or you can divide them.
Personally I couldn't care much for all this anymore when I was playing Sapphire, because it takes way too much time and effort to get a perfect Pokemon. In generation 1 and 2 it was much easier since you didn't have natures yet and you could max out the EVs for every stat. I preferred that system much more to be honest. You don't really need to go for perfect Pokemon anyway unless you're gonna play against other people online.

Acturally forget that, it isn't nitendo does anyone play mario kart wii?
Heh no I don't have the other two. A friend of mine has Mario Kart Wii though, so I play that game from time to time. I gotta say that it is fun for about an hour straight, but after that I usually get bored and put it away.
