Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire [3DS Hoenn Remake, November 2014]

Recommended Posts

The main reasons I use Super Training is for keeping track of the EVs of a pokemon and to check how many eggs I have left to hatch during breeding. I play the minigames if I need a specific EV spread other than 252 or to get those pesky dusk stones.

I'm with Silentdoom with the horde battles, makes EV training sooo much more quicker and efficient if you're training more than 1 poke at once. For me, if I fully train a poke in Super Training it takes me about 40 min. With hordes, it takes me about 10 min with 4 pokes if I so choose. The vitamins also help speed up the EV process along.

I just want an easier way to transfer IVs as the process is too random and time consuming to do.

Eh, I tried Super Training, but I found it way too tedious. These are the reasons why I think horde battles are easier:

- Sweet scent makes for immediate horde access
- With pokérus and power items or macho brace, you get a minimum of 20 EVs per battle, sometimes as high as 50 or 100
- You can train multiple 'mons at once, and each battle takes like... a second if you use a move like surf + EQ
- Super training can help monitor the growth and supply smaller bursts of EVs

I get that ST is way more accessible, but I'd argue that it's just too slow for someone like me.

Although the good thing about super training is that EVs stops increasing the second any stat hits 252, it go past that at all.

I don't think there's a character who's needed a remake redesign as badly as Brawly. He's still not the most interesting-looking Gym Leader, but at least now he's got a little texture to him. Having a gym that's an actual gym is kinda neat too.

I beginning to edge toward getting AS, but now the version-exclusivity if Zangoose to OR is pulling me back again.

Heeeelp T-T

And watch Zangooses Mega Stone be found in AS while Sevipers is in OR (assuming they are getting megas at all).

Vastly increased speed for Mega Metagross, and a buff to all its other stats? Man, it's really gonna be GROSS!

 

Yeah, I was expecting a few buffs in both its defenses, attack, and special attack but not vastly increased speed as well! This info makes me fear that Mega Metagross might be too strong for OU and will possibly get the uber banhammer like Kangaskhan. 

 

And is it me, or does Mega Metagross look like a spaceship?

Birch looks a lot more like Jontron in this than he did before.

To be fair, Metagross got a big nerf due to Dark and Ghost types being able to hit it harder than previous gens. And even then the OU environment usually looks for typing, movepools, stats, and abilities. Even if it has great stats, if it has the movepool as say Vaniluxe it will probably would be a niche pokemon but I'm sure Metagross' movepool is pretty vast compared to that. Abilities make or break pokemon too since Ninetales, Politoed, Espeon got a lot usage due to their new abilities but Megas usually get better abilities. It will definitely be OU for sure, but I honestly feel like there's still better than it, like Mega Gengar for example. We'll have to see what it looks like stat wise before we can say.

And it kind of does look like a spaceship now that you mention it.

Why does everyone like Flannery so much? Is it because she's hot (no pun intended) or something?

 

Back in the Gen 3 Era I did like Flannery but ultimately was just a passing thing (I liked her more that she was a Fire-type Gym Leader, one of my favorite types); I'm just loving how her character/personality is showing based on these facial expressions of hers. It really does bring a charming side to her, it that helps part of your question.

 

And she's just so adooooooooooooooorable
