Ah, Pokemon. Where do I begin...

My first game was Blue, back in 1998. I was 5 years old at the time, but it wasn't until Gold and Silver came out that I really started getting into it. I have vivid memories of trading with my older brother and his Silver version, while I had Gold.

Today, almost 14 years later, I decided to replay Gold. Just beat the first gym leader, and the game still feels so fun. It's not just nostalgia, either, although that plays a pretty big role. The AMAZING colour graphics, day/night feature, cell phone add-on, and the fact that your rival isn't your friend next door (but a mysterious criminal). It's a feeling hard to describe - you had to be a part of that generation to really understand the exciting essence of the game. These days, I consider it to be an almost "exclusive" club. Hehehe.

To this day, Gold/Silver are my number one games, with Ruby/Sapphire coming in a very close second. The innovation at the time was mind-blowing. Judging from X/Y, I honestly doubt it even feels like a true Pokemon game. You had to be there in the early 2000's to really feel the excitement in the air surrounding the epic Gold/Silver games. I'm sure those of you who are real Pokemon connoisseurs understand me perfectly, and agree 100%.

Free Celebi if you use pokemon bank before the end of January, goes into your copy of Pokemon X or Y.

Just picked up Pokemon Y, so keep 4656-7501-8717 in mind when I say I've gotten up to where I can access the friend safari.

Liking it so far. And these new abilities, both accessible & hidden, are crazy.

So I need some quick help
Im transferring over my battle team from Black/White to my pokemon Y game, but you cant transfer over items. Most of the items my team are holding are items i can get from battle points(items like choice specs, leftovers, focus band, and rocky helmet). However, one of the other items i use, flying gem, doesnt seem to be readily available in XY, so I was wondering if I could get some help picking out a new item for my pokemon?
The one needing a new item is this one:

Scizor(used to have flying gem)
--x-scissor
--acrobatics
--bullet punch
--swords dance

Im also rethinking acrobatics for scizor, mainly because I wont get that flying gem bonus, and a held item would just damper that, so any suggestions there would be great as well. So any suggestions for what item i should use for him?

An iron plate would be pretty baller, or a life orb.

acrobatics is good for coverage, but if youre definitely taking it out you could run U-turn instead. nothing like a pivot with a STAB priority move.
(his ability is technician, right?)

Iron plate might work, since bullet punch is weaker. I could also use life orb too. I was thinking about using his Scizorite though, would that be a good move too?

His ability is indeed technician. Since he already knows X-scissor, I dont want to run 2 bug moves, so I was thinking something like aerial ace. That sound okay?

i dont like running mine with scizorite, mega scizor doesnt hit as hard as tech-iron plate -bullet punch.

i would run u-turn over xscizzor too, because bullet punch will get the buff from tech

if you swap that out you still have room for Arial ace

Really? but doesnt his attack stat receive a huge boost? He also keeps his Technician ability, so it still receives the boost from that. I'll definitely look into iron plate though, if its as you say, i'll swap the mega stone for iron plate

i would run u-turn over xscizzor too, because bullet punch will get the buff from tech

running U-turn over x scissor has nothing to do with bullet punch getting a buff from technician. plus x-scissor has a higher attack, so im not sure what youre trying to say here. im still open to the idea though if you can clearly explain why it might be a better choice

if you swap that out you still have room for Arial ace

Ive already swapped acrobatics for aerial ace, so that isnt a problem anymore

appreciating the feedback :)
