« on: 04-06-2009, 21:18 »
Well, Platinum is here, so in tribute we have this contest.

Create a team of 3 Pokemon, complete with (legal) movesets and hold items. You may want to reference serebii.net unless you have a tonload of Pokemon knowledge memorized. They can be from the older games.

No legendaries, though.

Prize is a Raindrops request. Contest ends 4/30.

It's hilarious because Chansey can make an excellent tank if you're doing it right, reminds me of my Blissey build (Rest / Sleep Talk / Toxic / whatever attack move I feel like using).

It's super annoying!

Anyway, think primarily about single battles, although it doesn't hurt if your team is good at everything.

Mudkip (♀, Meme)
Hold item: Leftovers (HP Increases by 1/16th each turn)
-   Surf
-   Hydro Pump
-   Ice Beam
-   Attract

Castform (♀, Cassie)
Hold Item: Icy Rock (Prolongs number of turns of Hail)
-   Hail
-   Weather Ball
-   Ice Beam
-   Thunderbolt

Misdreavus (♂, Dread)
Hold Item: Bright Powder (Raises Evasiveness)
-   Dark Pulse
-   Flash
-   Toxic
-   Shadow Ball

I don't think Castform counts as a legendary even though she is only able to be gotten once. Might want to confirm that.

Castform has lower stat totals than a Wigglytuff, so I'd call that pretty safe.

Ok! Me is not very good at Pokemon, but me has beaten the Elite Four in Diamond about 50 times without legendaries, so me may be somewhat good at Pokemon. xD

I haven't played a pokemon game since Gold/Silver.  After that, my opinion is the games went to trash.  491 pokemans now?  Stupid...

Actually, Diamond/Pearl/Platinum is pretty good, although the game has gotten so hardcore (probably for series veterans' benefit) that I think they might as well scrap the pretense of being primarily for kids.

You're so right. I never really understood the algorithms I saw on serebii.net. But yeah, D/P was awesome. I don't have Platinum yet cause I got over it last year, but seeing this contest I decided I wanted to enter.
So how was my team, k//? :D

Agreed, D/P/Pt actually require you to really think about your party before going into a gym.  I think the pretense of the game being for kids actually helps the game - it makes it cuter and, while insulting one's intelligence, there's a bit of charm in running around with your pokemon, wanting to make them happy.

I'll attempt to assemble everyone's team and actually try them out, so we'll see when I get the time to do that.

Also there's nothing wrong with cuter games for older people (im@s?), and it's really missing a lot of features that older gamers might get impatient about (moving through your bag a scrollbar would really help, I mean, this is the DS... using HM moves should be a lot faster and there could be an option to skip the animation before them, etc.)

XD agreed.  Though, Disgaea DS is a prime example of putting exclusive stuff on both the screen and the buttons so that you need practically in battle mode.
