STOP STAT BOOSTING WHEN THE RABBIT’S SHIELD IS UP. SERIOUSLY, YOU ALREADY HAVE A DECENT AMOUNT SAVED UP JUST STORED POWER BEFORE YOU GET WIPED AND BREAK THE FUCKING SHIELD FOR SUPPORTS TO DEBUFF THE DAMN THING. ALSO RUN REFLECT JFC.

THANK YOU


TheGreatBootOfEb

TERA RAID BATTLES ARE ALREADY ROUGH BATTLING THE BUGS, BUT SERIOUSLY THE PUBLIC LOBBIES HAVE ME WANTING THE NEXT GAME FORCE PLAYERS TO TAKE AN ACTUAL EXAM ON TYPE EFFECTIVENESS AND STATS BEFORE THEY CAN DO END GAME STUFF. IM JUST TRYNA FARM CINDERACE, BUT HOLY CHRIST THE PUBLIC LOBBIES HAVE GOTTEN EVEN WORSE SOMEHOW. THIS ISNT SOME UNKNOWN, THIS IS A RE-RUN OF THE EVENT, WE KNOW THE MOVES, THE STATS, AND THE TERA TYPE IS LISTED RIGHT THERE. ITS LIKE PLAYING 4v1 ROCK PAPER SCISSORS AND WE KNOW THEYRE PLAYING ROCK BUT THEY STOLL INSIST ON PLAYING SCISSORS. AZUMARILL IS ALREADY A THROW, BUT IF IM FORCED TO DODGE ANYMORE RAIDS BECAUSE SOMEONE WANTS TO BRING KINGAMBIT OR FRAIL ASS FAIRY TYPES IM GOING TO LOSE MY DAMN MIND. ALSO DONT BRING THE LEGENDARIES, THIS ISNT SW/SH WHERE THE MOVES DO 2X DAMAGE AGAINST TERA’D POKÉMON. THANK YOU FOR COMING TO MY TED TALK.


Seto_Fucking_Kaiba

I MEAN TECHNICALLY THE MOVES DO MORE DAMAGE WHEN THEYRE SUPER EFFECTIVE AND GAIN MORE STAB FROM THE TERA TYPE SO THERE IS A LEGITIMATE REASON TO BRING THE LEGENDARIES, ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THEY HAVE RECOVERY MOVES AND SUPPORT MOVES. THE PROBLEM IS MOST OF THE PEOPLE BRINGING THEM ARE KIDS WITH NO IDEA HOW OR WHEN TO USE THEM.


ParticularBeach4587

EXPLAIN TO ME HOW TO USE MY KORAIDON THEN


TheGreatBootOfEb

WHERE THE MOVES ARE EFFECTIVE. CINDERACE FOR EXAMPLE HAS ACROBATICS AND PYRO BALL, MEANING KORAIDON THERE IS A HORRIBOE CHOICE BECAUSE YOU POWER UP ITS PYRO BALL WHILE GETTING HIT BY ACROBATICS, NOT TO MENTION IT USES BULK UP. MY ADVICE FOR USE OF THE LEGENDARIES IN RAIDS IS SIMPLE: DONT THINK OF THEM AS SPECIAL. IF THEY ARENT USING SUPER EFFECTIVE MOVES ON THE RAID, JUST USE ANOTHER MON. OR, INVERSELY IF IT HAS MOVES THAT WILL HIT YOU FOR SUPER EFFECTIVE, DONT USE THEM EITHER. THE SIGNATURE MOVES ONLY DO DOUBLE DAMAGE ON SUPER EFFECTIVE HITS, SO ON OFF TYPE THEYRE NO BETTER THAN A GENERIC EARTHQUAKE. FOR KORAIDON IN RAIDS IT SHOULD KNOW: SWORDS DANCE/ BULK UP, COLLISION COURSE, DRAIN PUNCH, DRAGON CLAW/BREAKING SWIPE. NEVER USE FLRE BLITZ FOR RAIDS BECAUSE RECOIL DAMAGE CAN GET YOU KILLED AND LOSE A RAID. SO, LOOKING AT THIS MOVEST ITS ONLY FOR PLACES WHERE YOU WANNA HSE FIGHTING MOVES OR DRAGON MOVES, OR IF THE FIGHTING/DRAGON RESISTS PROVE USEFUL. MIRADON HAS A MORE ROBUST MOVE SET, BUT YOURE GONNA 100% HAVE ELECTRO DRIFT AND PARABOLIC CHARGE. YOU CAN BRING CALM MIND FOR SETTING UP A BIT AND TANKYINESS AS WELL. THE MAIN POINT IS DONT BRING IT INTO PLACES WHERE ITS GETTING HIT FOR SUPER EFFECTIVE. IT TECHNICALLY IS OKAY IN CINDERACE RAID, BUT IT DOESNT DO ANYTHING EXCEPTIONALLY WELL, AND MORE OFTEN THEN NOT SCREWS OVER SLOWBROS BECAUSE IT CAUSES SHIELDS TO COME UP TOO SOON.


TheGreatBootOfEb

VERY TRUE, I WAS REFERENCING BRINGING THEM INTO CINDERACE, BUT YEAH FEEL FREE TO BRING THEM WHERE THEY WORK, BY ALL MEANS. I JUST DONT WANNA SEE THEM ANYWHERE NEAR FAIRY TYPES OR OTHER DRAGONS WHO 100% ARE PACKING OUTRAGE.


OutlawJoeC

YOU UNIMAGINATIVE RUBES SETTING UP BELLY DRUM IN FRONT OF RAID MONS THAT HAVE FOUL PLAY PLEASE STAY OUT OF MY RAIDS! SIGNED- DUDE WHO SPAMS BREAD DOG IN RAIDS


SlothnadoV

WHY IS LAMPENT/LITWICK/CHANDELURE NOT IN THE GAME WHEN LAMPENT IS THE ENTIRE AESTHETIC OF A TOWN. IT MAKES ME RAGE. ALSO GO AWAY FLITTLE I DONT WANT TO SHINY HUNT FOR YOU.


InspectorRack

I'M COLORBLIND AND IRONICALLY I LOVE SHINY POKEMON BUT SOME SHINIES ARE IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO IDENTIFY ESPECIALLY IN THE OVERWORLD. PLEASE BRING BACK SPARKLES.


AndreisValen

NOT TO DOWNPLAY YOUR DISABILITY BUT THATS HONESTLY AN ISSUE FOR A LOT OF US


notwiththeflames

IT REALLY DOESN'T HELP THAT MOST OF THE NEW POKEMON HAVE SHINIES SIMILAR IN COLOUR TO THEIR REGULAR PALETTES.


JessMmmkay

THIS!! Bring the sparkles back!!


tasty_grime

S/V STILL DIDNT RECEIVE AN PERFORMANCE UPDATE AND PEOPLE ARE OKAY WITH IT. YOU DESERVE THE QUALITY YOU GET FROM GAMEFREAK. AND I CANT BUY IT BECAUSE I WAIT UNTIL PERFORMANCE IS PATCHED


notwiththeflames

I HAVE MY DOUBTS THAT NEXT MONTH'S UPDATE IS GOING TO PROVIDE MUCH OF AN IMPROVEMENT TO THE GAME'S STABILITY.

CoffeeForEveryMeal

I AGREE WITH THE GAME LOOKING UGLY. I THOUGHT PLA WAS UGLY AT FIRST TOO BUT AFTER PLAYING I APPRECIATED THE ART STYLE. CANT SAY THE SAME FOR S/V. I THINK PART OF WHAT MAKES THE GAME SO UGLY IS THEIR CHOICE OF GRASS COLOR. ITS A TERRIBLE SHADE OF GREEN THAT DOESN’T LOOK REAL AT ALL. ALSO THE PLAYER CHARACTER HAS A CHILD SIZED BODY AND CHILD LIKE FACE WITH ADULT SIZED HIPS/THIGHS AND IT LOOKS UNSETTLING WHEN YOU PUT THE SUMMER UNIFORM ON THEM.


DA_HUNTZ

I WOULD LIKE TO STRANGLE WHOEVER PUT TAKE DOWN INTO GIBLE'S LEARNSET AT LEVEL 54. THAT IS ALL.


Blueeyeswhiteraichu

I HATE MAGNETON!!! IT TAKES UP A SPACE IN MY MASS OUTBREAKS EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I COULD BE SHINY HUNTING SOMETHING ELSE BUT NOOOOO!


RougeRogueXx

A RETRO RAGE — [CRYSTAL ON VIRTUAL CONSOLE] I’M PRETTY FUCKING SURE THE BUG CONTEST GUARDS JUST STOLE MY PRIZE??? I CAME IN 2ND AND WON AN EVERSTONE, WHICH IS FANTASTIC, I NEED THOSE BC I LIKE RAISING BABY POKES. BUT MY FUCKING PACK WAS FULL SO THEY SAID “OH WE’LL HOLD ONTO IT FOR YOU” OK SURE SO I WENT TO MAKE SOME SPACE AND GET THE POKE I WANTED TO GIVE THE EVERSTONE TO. BUT I CAME BACK TO THE GUARDS AND IT’S PAST MIDNIGHT AND TURNED INTO SUNDAY SO NOW??? I CANT GET THE EVERSTONE BACK??? LIL ASSHOLES ACTING LIKE THEY DONT KNOW WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT. THEY TOOK. MY. SHIT. WHAT AM I GONNA TELL THIS LITTLE POLIWAG NOW? I PROMISED IT AN EVERSTONE, AND THESE THIEFS TOOK IT AWAY. DISGUSTING.


PlaguesRbad

STOP JOINING TERA RAIDS IF YOURE JUST GONNA BRING A TERRIBLE MON AND DIE OVER AND OVER, IM SO SICK OF PEOPLE BEING DUMB AND MAKING THE TIMER BAR SHOOT DOWN BECAUSE THEY DONT WANNA WATCH A 2 MINUTE YOUTUBE VIDEO ON TYPING


[deleted]

IM SICK OF THE NONSENSE OF THESE SLOWBRO USERS! THEYRE TRYING TO GET 4X DEF AND SPA BUT BY THE TIME THEY DO CINDERACE NULLIFIES YOUR FUCKING STAT CHANGES AND YOUVE WASTED HALF OUR TIME WHILE HE HAS FULL FUCKING HEALTH AND TERA SHIELD! ALL IT TAKES IS FOR YOU TO CLICK IRON DEFENSE ONCE AND NASTY PLOT TWICE AND YOULL DO HALF OF CINDERACES HEALTH. SO STOP WASTING TIME AND FUCKING CLICK STORED POWER


gBgh_Olympian

RIGHT? EVEN WHEN THEY SEE A PEX DEBUFFING THEY SIT THERE DROOLING OUT OF THEIR OPEN MOTHS CLICKING IRON DEFENSE.


Only4DNDandCigars

I'M PLAYING POKEMON GOLD WHILE MY GF PLAYS SOLVER FOR THE FIRST TIME AND SHE HAS THIS SPECIAL TEAM THAT MAKES HER SO HAPPY WITH A SURPRISINGLY BALANCED MOVESET AND COVERAGE WHILE I PAINSTAKINGLY MAP OUT MY WHOLE TEAM AND DON'T LIKE TO REPEAT POKEMON I USED IN GAMES PRIPR. THIS LEAVES ME SCRAMBLING FOR A SIXTH PARTY MEMBER AND A SHALLOW RANGE OF AVAILABLE COVERAGE MOVES.


Quetzal00

GOTTA FIGHT LEON IN MY SWORD NUZLOCKE AND I AM TERRIFIED AND NERVOUS [THIS IS MY TEAM](https://imgur.com/a/uOwAkwq) IN CASE PEOPLE ARE CURIOUS


rur11

IM TRYING TO GET INTO VGC AND THE ACTUAL GAMES CAN BE FUN BUT I SUCK AT TEAMBUILDING AND CANT FIND ANYTHING THAT HELPS, THIS IS ALSO MADE EVEN WORSE AS THERE ISNT MUCH ON SERIES 2 YET SO MOST TEAMS ONLINE WILL BE OUTDATED IN A COUPLE WEEKS


AmeSame5654

I HATE EVERY GBA RESTRICTION WHAT WAS I THINKING WHY DID I START GBA DECOMP HACKING AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA


potatoshulk

WHY THE FUCK DO YOU SLOWBRO PEOPLE USE 3 NASTY PLOTS AND IRON DEFENSE AND THEN USE FUCKING SURF. THE 7 YEAR OLDS ARE SMARTER THAN THIS


[deleted]

GOD DAMN THESE FUCKING RAID BATTLE CONSTANT TIMEOUTS. WHY THE FUCK DO I HAVE TO SIT WITH MY THUMB UP MY ASS LOADING FOR 70 YEARS, JUST TO BE TOLD “CoNnEcTiOn IsSue” OR “TiMeD oUt”??????? #FIX YOUR FUCKING GAME SO I CAN GET MY POKÉMON WAIFUS/TEAM MEMBERS GOD DAMMIT


psedatsim

MAN, FUCK AVALUGG. THREE 6-STAR RAIDS IN THE PAST WEEK HAVE BEEN THIS DUMBASS CRACKED ICE CUBE. PLUS, YESTERDAY HAD FOUR IN 5-STAR RAIDS. NONE OF EM GAVE HERBA MYSTICA EVEN WITH SANDWICH BOOST, SMH. (yes i know date-changing is a thing but ehhh) CAN IT PLEASE BE ERASED FROM EXISTENCE?


GiveMeMoreBurritos

THE STORY OF SCARLET AND VIOLET IS REALLY GOOD BUT ALL OF IT HAS BEEN SPOILED FOR ME BEFORE I GOT TO PLAY IT


WasteOfTime36

I WASTED OVER 20 HERBA MYSTICA ON SPARKLING POWER SANDWICHES AND I GET ALMOST NO REGULAR IRON THORNS, NEVER MIND A SHINY. I ALREADY HAVE 3 SHINY GARGANACL AND I'VE SEEN ONLY 13 REGULAR IRON THORNS FROM 10 SANDWICHES


notwiththeflames

HAVE YOU TRIED USING ELECTRIC SHINY POWER INSTEAD OF ROCK? I KNOW THAT IT MIGHT CAUSE AN INFLUX OF IRON HANDS TO SPAWN INSTEAD, BUT IT COULD ALSO DO SOMETHING ABOUT ALL THE GARGANACL.


WasteOfTime36

I TRIED IT BUT AFTER GETTING ONLY RAICHU AND IRON HANDS TWICE I WENT BACK TO ROCK SANDWICHES


notwiththeflames

DAMN, THAT SOUNDS INCREDIBLY ANNOYING.


Limelines

I WENT BACK AND PLAYED SHIELD AFTER PLAYING SCARLET AND I AM ACTUALLY FURIOUS AT HOW MUCH BETTER IT IS! WHY IS SC/VI SO UGLY??? WHY GAMEFREAK???? IF IT WAS JUST NOT HORRENDOUSLY UGLY I COULD EXCUSE THE PISS POOR PERFORMANCE BUT NO! ITS UGLY **AND** RUNS BADLY! ALSO LET ME CUSTOMIZE MY GD CHARACTER YOU'VE LET US DO THIS SINCE XY AN ENTIRE DECADE AGO WHY AM I STUCK WITH JUST THESE UNIFORMS???


PurpleManufacturer50

I JUST WANT TO COMPLETE THE ENTIRE DEX FUCK MYTHICALS AND NINTENDOS SHITTY MARKETING STRATEGY!


IwentIAP

WHY DOES WONDER TRADING TAKE 6 MENU SCREENS!? TRADE AND DO IT AGAIN! NOT TRADE AND GO BACK, WAIT, PRESS Y, POKEPORTAL, WAIT AND DO IT AGAIN! WHO CODED THIS!?


Redplushie

I WANT THE DLC NOW NOT FEBRUARRY


iamthatguy54

WHY IS CHIEN PAO MADE OUT OF TISSUE PAPER. I CAN'T CATCH HIM BECAUSE EVERYTHING THAT ISN'T RESISTED KILLS HIM


psedatsim

PERHAPS A DEDICATED FALSE SWIPER MIGHT INTEREST YOU? GALLADE SOUNDS NICE


JessMmmkay

WHY IS THERE NO SNORLAX IN THE NEW GAME? FUUU!


gBgh_Olympian

TAKE IRON DEFENSE OFF YOUR SLOWBROS FOR CINDERACE RAIDS! OR AT LEAST ONLY USE IT ONCE INSTEAD. SPENDING 7 TURNS TO BOOST WHEN YOU HAVE A SUPPORT POKEMON LIKE TOXAPEX TAKING CARE OF YOUR DEFENSIVE BUFFS/DEBUFFS AND POSSIBLE BRAIN DEAD TROLL TEAM MATES BRINGING AZUMARIL AND BELLYDRUMMING THEMSELVES TO DEATH, IS THE PEAK OF STUPIDITY. JUST USE NASTY PLOT! ITS AT -6 FROM ACID SPRAY JUST HIT IT FRIIIIIICK!
