That's exactly what I did in FRLG, Kadabra STILL destroyed absolutely everything.Oh I know that's a real issue with the trade evolution Pokemon.. So many good options you can no longer use unless you have another console or a nearby friend with a console. This situation kinda forces you pull an Ash with these types of pokemon and just leave them unevolved. I just kinda pretend that their evolution does not exist, which can work if their non evolved form is already good like Kadabra and Haunter imo. But yeah, mostly you just avoid these. It is actually a main issue in HGSS where SO many gen 2 Pokemon are trade evolutions.
Totally! I didn't think so many people would get behind it lmaoedit: I hope we are really hyping you to do this playthrough and not pressuring you in case you become busy and realize this was not a good idea lol
I really like those! However, I feel like I'd be cheating if I brought the powerhouse that is Garchomp along with me. I know it's not and I actually really like Garchomp as a Pokémon but I feel it would be too good for just a fun playthrough like this. I'll take you up on Roserade tho because flowers!!*incredibly detailed suggestions, thank you*
Simply nickname your HM slave as HM slave
If you make YouTube video of your gameplay, provide me a link and I will watch it!
I kinda like this idea, actually. Like, every time I catch something there's a vote to see if it replaces anyone on my team?Am I the only one who thinks that Staraptor and Luxray are the too obvious choices? Maybe use them but try to let people decide each time you catch a Pokemon you like on whether to add it to your team instead of whichever Pokemon or not.
I've been guilty of using all the Pseudos in my last few runs. (I used both Dragonite and Tyranitar in HGSS which was fun, Salamence in my last emerald run and Hydreigon in my BW Nuzlocke), but honestly I feel as if they've never been the number one contributors to my teams? It's strange. (Legit, my Seismitoad contributed more than my Hydreigon did in Black Tower/White Treehollow in BW2 I did for fun after beating the first game). I just like their designs a lot I think-but I totally understand not wanting to use them as they could be too overpowered at times.I really like those!

I really like this idea too, honestly. It'll allow for some community interatcion and it'll help keep this thread alive. I'm a pretty big fan of it so far as it definitely feels like a good sense of community here and that'll definitely push it.I kinda like this idea, actually.

Awn it would've been fun if we could have like traded or something! I hope my shenanigans scratch your itch.This thread's actually made me want to start up the run of Platinum I've been thinking of. I want to breed a Beldum (using Ditto it's possible) and bring his egg over to use as my "starter" of sorts. I've been wanting to use Metagross for the longest time but he's postgame-only in Gen 3.
Only issue is my 3DS I use for trading between cartridges is currently lent to my friend so she can play the later Ace Attorney games, and since I can't really go an hour away to get it I can't really start that run now. But hey! I'll be able to get a bit of the fix I wanted from that game with this thread, so that's a plus!
It would have! Perhaps there's some kind of run I could make one of these days that would involve the community. (This thread's inspired me to do some form of Nuzlocke or something that involves this forum in the future). But that's not to steal your spotlight or anything, I'm not doing this for a LONG while. I'm definitely excited to see some of these shenanigans though!Awn it would've been fun if we could have like traded or something! I hope my shenanigans scratch your itch.
I actually meant to include a little spoiler at the end with the team, but as it turns out that slipped my mind. I've edited in now. Thanks for the feedback!Wow, my Geodude equivalent is one stubborn little guy. Gotta say, I like that attitude.
Seems like you're enjoying the game so far though! And I do enjoy the format you've got going on, little bits of commentary on both the happenings in the game and the mechanics themselves-I do like seeing the thoughts you have on these parts I'm so familiar with going through.
If I could add a suggestion, perhaps at the beginning of each new update, you could show a little thing what your team is at that time under a spoiler tag or something? I think it'd be cool to see how it changes each update throughout the whole thing, and a little "recap" of the team might be a cool little addition to the experience. That's just a small suggestion I have personally, though I think everything's pretty solid as is. Can't wait to see more!
You put waaay to much effort into that Kricketune thing lmao. I would also like a Buizel because bbninjas can't just take on Chimchar, and AshCo will also be in trouble once it learns Fighting moves.But I'd love to see Buizel/Floatzel on the team. Would patch up Turtwig's speed issues and give some nice type coverage for the future.
