Genesect needs to be banned.

Fire: Infernape. It's got some diversity and can run both physical and special movesets.

Water: Samurott. Out of all the other Water-type starters, Samurott is the only one with a decent move pool in-game. Even then.

Grass Serperior. I just love it. Though it doesn't have that good a movepool in-game, it's pretty bulky and generally good as a setup sweeper.

This has changed to me loving Feraligatr more. I think the lack of it in my current SS run hurts. :|

This ability reverses the typings of super effective moves and not very effective moves that it uses. (Eg: A fire move on Kingdra is 4x effective).


This ability reverses the typings of supper effective moves and not very effective moves attacks dealt upon it. (Eg: a fighting type move dealt on Slaking will not be very effective).

This second one sounds quite inconvenient. Perhaps the two should be merged, so that there's a set back to pwning Steel-types and the like? Seems rather OP otherwise.

Kanto: Charizard
Johto: Feraligatr
Hoenn: Sceptile
Sinnoh: Infernape
Unova: Serperior
Kalos: Greninja

I updated this. I don't know why I liked Samurott the most, lol.

People thought there was going to be Pokemon Grey because of Kyurem, but instead we got Black 2 and White 2. I dunno if Game Freak is going to to return to having a third title. They did the sequels of B2 and W2 so well I think they're gong to do it again.

PKMN.NET / Suggestion: Forum Skins

I didn't see a suggestions board so I figured suggestions go here.

I think there should be different skins for the forum. Or at least a darker one.

I'm Karzahni14. This one was good. It was a while ago, and I was testing out the team. Still did pretty good I reckon.

This one is my snake team. To be honest, that guy was probably going to sweep me depending on his Electabuzz set.

And this is another one with my snake team. I make a few derp moves, but I still pwn this guy.
And omg this is the one with the really bad set on Serperior. D:

Nelson Mandela was an inspirational man. 95 is a pretty good age to live to, too.

Games General / Re: Why is a farfetch'd called farfetch'd?
« on: December 08, 2013, 11:54 »
You should give this a read:

If you want to TL;DR the whole thing, here's the main points:

it comes from a certain Japanese saying: Kamo ga negi wo shotte kuru (鴨が葱を背負って来る), literally meaning 'a duck comes bearing green onions'. The phrase can be shortened simply to kamo negi (鴨葱)... which, when written in katakana, is Farfetch'd's Japanese name (カモネギ).

Duck and green onion are the primary ingredients for a good duck stew, and so finding a duck carrying green onions would be a surprising but convenient occurrence. This is the first meaning of the idiom: something not asked for, but very convenient; a serendipitous event. In Red and Blue, the player's acquisition of the very rare Farfetch'd, traded for a common Spearow, could be seen as just such an event. The phrase is given a literal portrayal, as the player actually obtains a duck carrying a green onion.

A duck bearing a green onion is a creature walking naïvely towards a nasty fate, and the idiom has come to refer to individuals who are easy to deceive. One dictionary gives the meaning 'along comes a sucker just begging to be parted from his money'. As a result, somebody who is easy to take advantage of can be referred to in Japanese as a kamo (鴨) or 'duck'.
