Team Building / Re: Jump Festa Lati@s Double team
« on: December 18, 2014, 16:10 »
I'll have to see if I can drop Kay a quick message. I'm sure she has some mon lying around too.

As I said, I'm not sure how super serious everyone will be, given the type of event it is. If I could use old things I'd probably just trot out my Trick Room or Sandstorm teams, but those are from BW.

Normally would use Protect for doubles, but not a good idea on a scarfed Latios. Dragon Pulse makes sense to me.

Lacking in a Rotom W, but I do have a 4V Timid Rotom sitting on X/Y.

Given the time I've put in, I think I'll stick to the Weavile for now, so any thoughts on last slot? Something to stop Aegislash would probably be a good idea given the rest of the team, or can I try and hope Weavile will get a hit in?

Edit: Also, needs to be a relatively simple team that someone with practically zero competitive experience can use when I likely lend it to me fiancee for the Sunday. That said, she could quite handily beat people up with the old Trick Room team.


Weavile done. Went with Knock Off and Protect in the end.
Gardevoir done. Decided to go with Focus Blast so I could have a way to try and deal with Steels.
Latios done, barring the final move slot. Psyshock, D Meteor, D Pulse, X. Had sort of been tempted by Shadowball just to smack Aegislash.

Looking at my boxes on XY, my choices for the last slot are:

Tyranitar, Garchomp, Aegislash, Klefki, Talonflame, Malamar, Gengar, Scizor, Azumarill, Houndoom, Hydreigon, Amoongus, Gourgeist, Trevenant, Dragonite to name a few.

My initial thoughts are Talonflame, and just throw a choice band set at people? Might as well just build for smacking people in the face hard and fast.

Speed will also likely work to my advantage, since it will let me have more games.

Last slot for the team, since I'm only opting to use one of the Lati@s pair. Sorry if the original rule list wasn't clear and made it sound like I needed to use both.

Didn't realise I needed to make my Latios happy to get Draco Meteor. I put it in my box...

Thinking for Latios, Draco Meteor, Psyshock, then not sure? Should I just try and cover as much types as possible with thunderbolt and ice beam?

Thanks for the offer on something to lend out. I'll try and see if I can scrounge up something of my own first, and try to get back to you tomorrow night if not.

Gardevoir is pretty much ready now, barring some levels. Sneasel is bred, so needs levelling up etc. Latios I just need to sort out a moveset on.

Any thoughts on what to try covering with the last slot? Not sure I'll have too much time left to do much more breeding, so might need to pull out one of my 5V mon from XY that never got raised up, like Aegislash.

Thanks for the help Richard. You thankfully don't have to hold a Latiosite, but I suspect I'll see a fair few number of people with it. I expect it to be divided between kids, general Pokemon fans and crazy dedicated people trying to play against the voice actors / actresses. I don't expect too many super competitive players, but it being Japan I could be really underestimating this.

Both Knock Off and Mega Gardevoir have been suggested before, so that's certainly going to be something to look into. Need to hope all the random stuff I was breeding in XY falls into the right egg groups to be useful here. Need to actually finish ORAS and get access to easy breeding...

Will come back with update on my progress for the team hopefully.

Team Building / Jump Festa Lati@s Double team
« on: December 12, 2014, 13:40 »
Hey everyone, looking for a bit of advice here. Need to try and get a team together for a special event next weekend. Jump Festa has a special Pokemon event, with the chance to maybe play against some voice actors / actresses, so I've been tasked with getting a team ready.

Win 3 in a row and you get a raffle ticket for a chance to play against one of them, win the most on that day and you're guaranteed to.

Rules are:

Double Battle
Mon 1-719 okay, excluding a bunch of Legends / promos.
4 Pokemon.
No dupes.
Must contain a Lati@s
Must be from XY or ORAS.
No Soul Dew.
No dupe items.

I've got a Timid 30-31/17-19/30-31/30-31/0-3/30-31 Latios that I got on my first try, so will probably be using this over Latias. What good on a Latios in doubles?

Next, what are some good counters to Lati@s, because I know I'll always have to face them. Or should I concentrate more on supporting Latios, and making sure I can beat other counters?

Any ideas?

Really shouldn't play when I'm so tired / sleepy. Really rusty with the game anyway, and have a long long way to go before becoming decent like in the older games.

Can't promise I'll be much good right now, but should be up for that.

I'm the one with the Japanese name now.

Edit: Sorry, no point going on tonight, I'm just playing absolutely terribly. Not worth your time.

Mine is: 3969-5646-2355. (Different from old one because JPN 3DS).

Adding people now.

Always nice to see some of the old faces still around. Just looked and I realised my account is coming up on 10 years too.

But I always take my advice from teenagers on a Pokemon forum.

To be honest, you don't see gay couples in Pokémon (when you battle the partners in double battles), but no-one has made a deal of it. It might not be integral to the game, but it's something to draw comparison to. It's all blown a bit far out of proportion, whether Nintendo actually thought about it is unknown to us...but I don't think they left it out just to cause a stir.

Well there's that male couple (the psychic and the blackbelt), that the internet decided was a couple. (No I'm not going to go grab details right now, maybe once at home later). On the other hand, I think the internet read too much into the throwaway comment made by a Beauty (I think?) in the Battle Chateau (Maison?) that they used to decide she was transgender.

It really looks like to me this discussion here is probably going to get out of hand at some point.

I think the internet as a whole overreacted to the Tomodachi Life situation, and the media (esp the gaming one) exacerbated the situation. Nintendo's original comment on the situation wasn't the best, because it didn't really explain anything, and in trying to be non-committal actually made the situation worse somehow.

Their 2nd comment struck me as basically saying that the commitment required to patch / change the year old game for the Western release would be too big an undertaking from a programming standpoint. It wasn't being approached from a moral standpoint, but a practical one.

I think we can all agree that games being more inclusive can only be for the better though.

Also, I saw comments about yaoi / yuri stuff earlier. No, most of that is not aimed at people who are actually gay. It's mostly meant to titillate straight audiences (whether guys or girls). The stuff that actually deals with the subject matter properly (i.e. Takako Shimura's work) is in the vast minority.

Umm I'm very jealous. I assume you're in one of the Pokemon Centers, right?

Yeah, I was in the Osaka one on Saturday. Very busy. They've just launched the Espurr / Meowstic line of merchandise.

I've currently found about 17 Pokemon, but I'm a bit lost on where to look for things.

Metagross was hanging out at Buckingham Palace.
