Not by far. Breeding to get the moves you want is not reinventing a genre. To reinvent the genre would be to change how the game is played entirely, yet all breeding did was to give us a way to get new Pokémon, and let those Pokémon learn moves they couldn't otherwise learn. It only enhanced the already pre-existing elements of catching and training Pokémon.

I'm sorry, I can understand that you said you don't dislike the designs, but the way you spoke of these specific Pokemon made it seem these were the exceptions.

Game Freak is not running out of ideas and concepts, they are running out of animals.

Re: |OT| Pokemon (Black & White): Thread of Darmanitastic!

Chapman, I have quite a few of those, but I haven't gotten around to trading them into my White Version.

Guys, I'm currently trying EV training for the first time. It is boring me out of my mind. How does this whole business work and how can I be sure it's even doing anything?

Well if your pokes are in mid 40's or 50's then you won't see any stat increase until the next level gain.

If you are putting 252 ev's into one stat around lv 50 you should see it jump up 15ish points on the next level up stat increas screen.

also: not sure if the box trick works in gen V yet, but in gen I through IV if you deposited an EV'd poke pre-level up the stats would be recalculated to match the EV's

Re: |OT| Pokemon (Black & White): Thread of Darmanitastic!

I'm training a Ferroseed, right now I think it's about level 15 or so, for online fighting. It's got about a hundred or so EV's in Defense. I just haven't been noticing much improvement.

Re: |OT| Pokemon (Black & White): Thread of Darmanitastic!

You won't see a dramatic improvement at early levels. Maybe +3 or +4 per level instead of 1+ 2+ or 0+

if you want precise data use metal kids calculator

MetalKid's Gaming Resources - IV Calculator

calculate what defence would be at say.... 15 IV's and 0 EV's

oops wrong calculator

http://www.metalkid.info/Pokemon/Calculators/Stat.aspx

but yea the stat differences become more pronounced as they approach level 100, it's not a linear increase as levels go up.

That site doesn't have Generation V's Pokemon on its list.

Re: |OT| Pokemon (Black & White): Thread of Darmanitastic!

oh that's weird. gen V is up for the IV calc but not stat my bad.

I guess try this one although it doesn't look near as pretty and might still be buggy.

Re: |OT| Pokemon (Black & White): Thread of Darmanitastic!

I headed over to Serebii. Apparently it's running alright. Got the intel I wanted, so no problems there. I've never really understood how IV's work anyway.

Re: |OT| Pokemon (Black & White): Thread of Darmanitastic!

You have a point, Bravo.

Originally, I hated on the new pokemon because I considered them all rip-offs of the original pokemon, but I came to understand that it's totally chill to have more than one bat (to use your example), because realistically... how many different types of bats exist in the world? Now I only hate on the one's who look stupid... Like your monkeys. And that Cryo-whatever guy.

You're not one of those silly, silly people who hasn't yet realized you can push the floating blue stones out of your way, are you?

Re: |OT| Pokemon (Black & White): Thread of Darmanitastic!

True. I still think they look stupid though...

You know, they did pretty much the same thing with Uxie, Mespirit, and Azelf. The only difference is, those three are basically useless.

It's actually quite linear. You need to push the blue rocks into the larger ones to make a path. Once you find N again (if you need help with that, just follow the line of Team Plasma Grunts on B1F), you've found the exit!

Well... Yes, but not in this game... unless that one blue and red guy is. Dragonite and Altaria are both Dragon Flying, as is Salamence...

That Blue and Red guy is called either Hydreigon or Braviary.

Hydreigon is Dark/Flying
Braviary is Normal/Flying
:D
