Holy crap. I forgot about those tamigachis pets back in the day. I never really got into the hang of them. I personally remember the Digimon walkers that were available.

This looks interesting to say the least. Not too sure if I would be a fan of it now since all the technology we have is way better.

This is turning into the nostalgia club :O

What's you're favorite Pokemon? lol

Yeah, Gengar is a bad ass Pokemon. Gotta love the sleep with dream eater combination. That was a killer move set.

Yeah, Moltres is the shit. The true phoenix bird of the Pokemon series. What about those legendary dogs??? I forgot some of their names. Entei, Sucine, and Rakiou I think it was. Excuse the spelling.

lol You're probably right about that.

Btw, I never played SoulSilver or HeartGold yet.

I heard those games didn't do to bad on the ratings. I can't be bothered with the new Pokemon games nowadays anyways.

I have Soul Silver, which is currently my main pokemon game focus, and I have two sets of the legendary dogs, one normal that I found in the wild, and another set that's shiny I had to go to the events for :3.

Honestly, I really do like the newer games, I haven't gotten that far into my Black though to really give much of an opinion though. It's all really a preference thing. I just try not to judge it before I try it; for the most part.

I've never obtained an event Pokemon through an event as I've never been to one. I've always had to use gamesharks and Action Replays to obtain them.

I enjoy my Pokemon White team. Got one legitimate team sweeper on there: Lilligant.

Petal Dance - Giga Drain - Quiver Dance - Sleep Powder
Own Tempo (prevents confusion caused by Petal Dance making her deadly)
And lastly give her a Miracle Seed and she can take out a majority of the Elite Four with help from other Pokemon.

Did anybody else find Pokemon white/black 2 crap? The beginning was great, exploring the new cities, but then it got boring. Adding in Pokemon from the other generations didn't really matter to me, but when i got to castelia city the game just felt like my Pokemon black experience with a few difference, which didn't change the game in any drastic ways.

Pokemon tier changes!
Chansey has moved down to UU
Amoongus, cincinno, and emboar have moved up to RU
stoutland and roselia have moved down to NU

Happy about cincinno finally leaving but Chansey in UU? Everyone is going to be abusing the tits out of CB heracross.

New Pokemon game announced! Pokemon X and Y are according to serebii.net "The start of the new Generation XI", and from the gameplay footage shown, it looks like it should be something to keep an eye out for. Should be here In October this year, worldwide.

I am so divided by those two, even more than I was by Black and White 2.
The pros: Game looks incredible, looks like it plays even better. 3D Pokemon! Plus the new legendaries (The bird will be forever known as Skybacon) look pimp. Plus the trailer showed that you can catch Pikachu in the wild again.
Cons: Pikachu is annoying for the first time. Think they changed his voice actor or something. Plus the new starters are nothing short of absurd. They look like friggin' Neopets.

So here's to Retarded Chipmunk, Mozilla Firefox and Hypnotoad.

Due to the attacks shown in the trailers from the starters, people speculate we're getting Grass/Dark, Fire/Psychic, and Water/Fighting final evos. So FINALLY, the goddamn Fire/Fighting streak could be broken!

Also, theory is that the cover mons are based off of Norse mythos - Eikþyrnir & Veðrfölnir, specifically. (Don't ask me to pronounce that shit. ;P )

People are saying that the Chespin line is porcupines, actually - which would explain the 'pin' part. About time we had a porcupine mon.

And I happen to like Fennekin, dammit - and I WILL be naming mine Mozilla. :P

Well that sucks, I might skip this generation after all.

Actually Gen 5 is one of the best gens since G2. Besides, Game Informer is a terrible source for reviews.

I got re-interested into PKMN a few days ago. Apparantly, I still think that Gen 4 is Master Race, so I'm kinda out-of-place. I tried B&W 1 and it didn't appeal to me, so I have the same kind of assumption on B&W 2. As for X & Y, I really don't know. I'm pretty broke.

Currently trying to finish the Pokedex in Platinum. As of recently, I've seen 427 PKMN and caught 257. I also caught a shiny Bidoof and a shiny Fearow on accident.

I had raised a bunch of PKMN before, but I'm currently training my second Blaziken (lv. 85), first Heracross (lv. 85) and first Honchkrow (lv. 73) -- all with beneficial nature and EV-trained. I'm probably going to breed a Gallade and a Gardevoir afterwards, and then a Salamence. I'm also training a Linoone (currently lv. 62) all the way to Lv. 90 because I want it to pick up useful items.

my PKMN PC has a box full of hatched Larvitars....that don't meet the requirements for excellent training...I gotta clean that up soon...

I also started watching the anime (starting from Season 10). It's alright.

Anyone here who played Pokemon Stadium 2?

I found my old Transfer Pack at my parent's place and decided to boot the game up again just to relive some memories. It looks like I still hadn't beaten the master ball level 50-55 cup and I remember always getting screwed in the last round. It seems like I used some fairly shitty teams though. Apparently I once thought Dragonair was good to bring along...

Anyway, I'm determined to try and beat the game just for the sake of having another N64 completed. Can anyone here provide me with some advice on what would be an awesome team?

I was thinking:

Houndoom (level 55)
Flamethrower (or Fire Blast)
Crunch
Solarbeam
Sunny Beam

Tyranitar (level 55)
Earthquake
Rock Slide
Crunch
???

Snorlax (level 50)
Body Slam
Hyper Beam
Ice Punch
Thunder Punch

Lapras (level 50)
Surf
Body Slam
Ice Beam
???

Espeon (level 50)
Psychic
Shadowball
Sunny Day
???

Skarmory (level 50)
Drill Peck
Steel Wing
Swift
??? (maybe Spikes)

It's mostly the move sets I'm still having doubts about. I would like to add a fighting type move somewhere, but there don't seem to be any good, teachable fighting moves in gen 2. Also, I suppose it would make sense to use legendaries, but either their move pools are terrible or their stats aren't favourable with respect to the moves they can learn.

PS: I don't feel like fixing my Pokemon Red cartridge in order to have access to gen 1 stuff.

I only played Pokemon Stadium (the first one) on the N64. I don't know if there's a mass difference between 1 & 2.

I was thinking:

Houndoom (level 55)
Flamethrower (or Fire Blast)
Crunch
Solarbeam
Sunny Beam

If Dark Pulse exists in the game, than replace it with Crunch.

Also, Sunny Beam wut?

Tyranitar (level 55)
Earthquake
Rock Slide
Crunch
???

I think Stone Edge would suit Tyranitar better than Rock Slide. Rock Slide's 'flinch' effect would be zeroed out most of the time because its slower than most PKMN, and both moves have potential to miss anyway.

Is Brick Break teachable in PKMN Stadium 2?

I personally like putting Ice Punch on Tyranitar's moveset, just to take out Grass, Ground & Dragon types.

Snorlax (level 50)
Body Slam
Hyper Beam
Ice Punch
Thunder Punch

Why Hyper Beam? Snorlax's Sp. Atk is awful. Replace Hyper Beam with Fire Punch or Brick Break.

My friend had Pokemon Stadium 1. I don't remember there being a huge difference. Of course 2 had some more content, better graphics and was specifically made for the gen 2 games. As far as I know the stat training mechanics of gen 1 and gen 2 were the same though.

I was thinking:

Houndoom (level 55)
Flamethrower (or Fire Blast)
Crunch
Solarbeam
Sunny Beam
If Dark Pulse exists in the game, than replace it with Crunch.

Nah, we didn't have fancy moves like that back in our time ;)

Also, Sunny Beam wut?

*Sunny Day

Sorry. From what I read somewhere, this move set makes Houndoom one of the best Pokemon you could use in the Lvl 50-55 cup.

Tyranitar (level 55)
Earthquake
Rock Slide
Crunch
???

Again, no moves like that existed in gen 2. If I remember correctly Brick Break was gen 3 and Stone Edge gen 4. Otherwise I would've definitely chosen Stone Edge over Rock Slide.

I personally like putting Ice Punch on Tyranitar's moveset, just to take out Grass, Ground & Dragon types.

Sounds good. I'll give him that as his fourth.

Snorlax (level 50)
Body Slam
Hyper Beam
Ice Punch
Thunder Punch
Why Hyper Beam? Snorlax's Sp. Atk is awful. Replace Hyper Beam with Fire Punch or Brick Break.

I was thinking 150 power + STAB + Pink Bow = epic damage. I don't remember his Sp. Atk being all that horrible, but I could be wrong.

Fire Punch might make him more versatile though. I was mostly putting Snorlax on my team as a back-up anyway, just to cover some types I hadn't covered with the others yet. Also, I thought his stats were actually really good because he gives in so much in speed.

Thanks for the advice!

Looks alright. Only danger I see here is how Houndoom's kinda frail, so Sunny Day should be put up at one's own risk.

Tyranitar (level 55)
Earthquake
Rock Slide
Crunch

Give him an elemental move on the last one (fire/ice/thunder punch) for coverage depending on what other moves everyone else has.

Snorlax (level 50)
Body Slam
Hyper Beam
Ice Punch
Thunder Punch

Hmm, Snorlax has pretty low special attack. How about a rest/sleep talk set with body slam & shadow ball to reinforce his massive HP?

Lapras (level 50)
Surf
Body Slam
Ice Beam
???

Sing or Confuse Ray in the last one perhaps? Something that sabotages the enemy is always nice.

Espeon (level 50)
Psychic
Shadowball
Sunny Day
???

Morning Sun on the last one, maybe? Also, again, mind the fact that the physical/special split isn't what it always was. In this case, Shadow Ball being physical.

Skarmory (level 50)
Drill Peck
Steel Wing
Swift
??? (maybe Spikes)

Spikes if leading off, toxic if not.

It's mostly the move sets I'm still having doubts about. I would like to add a fighting type move somewhere, but there don't seem to be any good, teachable fighting moves in gen 2.

Hitmonlee gets Hi Jump Kick, Machamp gets Cross Chop, Poliwrath can learn Dynamicpunch & Mind Reader, and Heracross gets Reversal.

Also, I suppose it would make sense to use legendaries, but either their move pools are terrible or their stats aren't favourable with respect to the moves they can learn.

Zapdos would like a word.

Hmm, Snorlax has pretty low special attack. How about a rest/sleep talk set with body slam & shadow ball to reinforce his massive HP?

Hmm might be good, but I wanted to use Snorlax as a back-up. For example, when facing water types I only got Houndoom with Solarbeam, but I doubt Houndoom will survive for long against a strong water Pokemon. I know the second last battler has Suicune which he will definitely use, so for that battle I wanted to bring Snorlax along.

If I set him up with Ice, Fire and Thunder Punch he seems to be pretty versatile.

Lapras (level 50)
Surf
Body Slam
Ice Beam
???
Sing or Confuse Ray in the last one perhaps? Something that sabotages the enemy is always nice.

Yeah, I was thinking about giving him Confuse Ray since that can always come in handy.

Espeon (level 50)
Psychic
Shadowball
Sunny Day
???
Morning Sun on the last one, maybe? Also, again, mind the fact that the physical/special split isn't what it always was. In this case, Shadow Ball being physical.

I believe Espeon doesn't learn Morning Sun until level 52, and there's a restriction that the sum of the levels of the three Pokemon you bring along may not exceed 155. Since I intend to use Tyranitar, I don't like to have Espeon at 52 since I won't be able to bring Espeon and Tyranitar.

I didn't know Shadow Ball was considered a physical attack. I guess that would be a bad choice then.

That leaves two open slots... maybe Sunny Day is a little redundant too, but I thought Espeon could set it up for Houndoom.

Skarmory (level 50)
Drill Peck
Steel Wing
Swift
??? (maybe Spikes)
Spikes if leading off, toxic if not.

Hmm I know there's one trainer that loves to use Baton Pass so for that battle I thought Spikes would be handy. Toxic might be handier for the rest of the battles though, so I'll go with Toxic.

It's mostly the move sets I'm still having doubts about. I would like to add a fighting type move somewhere, but there don't seem to be any good, teachable fighting moves in gen 2.
Hitmonlee gets Hi Jump Kick, Machamp gets Cross Chop, Poliwrath can learn Dynamicpunch & Mind Reader, and Heracross gets Reversal.

I know Poliwrath is especially a murdering machine since you can teach it Fissure from Gen I. Add Mind Reader to his moves and he can bring everything down in two turns, except for flying types. However, he learns Mind Reader at level 51 and I don't feel like giving him Fissure because I'd have to fix my Gen I cartridge and play through almost the entire game again.

But I could perhaps swap Snorlax for Machamp and teach Machamp Cross Chop along with the elemental punches.

Also, I suppose it would make sense to use legendaries, but either their move pools are terrible or their stats aren't favourable with respect to the moves they can learn.
Zapdos would like a word.

Zapdos is an exception, but same story as above; I don't feel like playing through Pokemon Red again just to obtain Zapdos.

Thanks for the tips!

Oh, a baton passer...
Skarmory also gets Roar/Whirlwind to snap them away. Combine that with the spikes, perhaps?

I have been play Pokemon White online for the past few days.

One thing I've noticed that seems to be a large waste of time are players giving away commons (sometimes shiny), all while asking for the impossible.

ITT: lv. 9 or lower Ditto or legendary, neither of which can be legitimately caught
or asking for underleveled Pokemon that can't be caught or obtained without a cheating device

On the offhand though, building back up a fun team I always used from various games.

Blaziken
Delcatty/Lopunny
Ludicolo
Pidgeot/Dragonite

Any suggestions for making the team better?

It's part of what they do for a cloning glitch in order to ensure that no one takes their shiny while they attempt to "clone" it. It has something to do with uploading it to the GTS, then turning off the DS at the right time to make the game revert to the previous save, but keeping the uploaded guy there for an easy return.
