THE STARTER POKÉMON CLUB




http://i248.photobucket.com/albums/gg180/bam43ver1134/StarterPokmonClubPic3.png



Hello SPPf-ers. I am Buraddo_Aipom. This is the third "version" of the SPC, and after talking to Shadowfaith and explaining what has happened in the past to the best of my abilities, she has granted the SPC another life.

Intro Speech Thing:
The first club was led by the amazing Eclipse and that's when I first joined the SPC. A few members really didn't like me and held a grudge for a very long time (a few months, but it felt long ;D). I have forgiven them and they have forgiven me, so it's all okay now. I'm not exactly sure why, but I really wanted to be the owner of this club back then. Most of the people who hated me say it was because I was power-hungry and the others say because I was just a noob. Eclipse - the owner of the first SPC - was banned for a week at some point, and I - being my noob self - asked a Club mod if I could remake the club. I was allowed, which created a HUGE fight between almost every member. So I told the mod that I wanted Manaphyman to own the club, and he was allowed. His speech is still in the second SPC (the link is at the beginning of this post). Both Eclipse and Manaphyman were great leaders, but now it is my turn.



Starter Pokémon Club Rules:

ONE You must like one or more of the following: Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard, Squirtle, Wartortle, Blastoise, Chikorita, Bayleaf, Megainium, Cyndaquil, Quilava, Typhlosion, Totodile, Croconaw, Feraligatr, Treecko, Grovyle, Sceptile, Torchic, Combusken, Blaziken, Mudkip, Marshtomp, Swampert, Turtwig, Grotle, Torterra, Chimchar, Monferno, Infernape, Piplup, Prinplup, Empoleon
TWO All SPPf and Club Rules - yes, this includes no one-liners. One-liners caused a lot of problems in the last club so let's avoid them here.
THREE Only two topics per day, and one topic must be related to something Pokémon. And anyone is allowed to create a topic.
FOUR No bashing/flaming/trolling. Period. You know that you will be infracted, and we do not want that.
FIVE In your first post please include the following: your favorite Starter or Starter evolution line, your name, why you want to be in this club, and anything else I and the other members should know(if you will be active/unactive, etc.)
SIX Everyone is equal. Please don't act like you're better just because you think you are.
SEVEN What I say goes, including rejecting members already approved by Co-Owners (this will only really happen if I find a lot of things wrong with a user or do not think their posts will improve to meet the standards of the rules).
EIGHT If you are banned from Serebii, you are no longer welcome in the Club (there can be exceptions). That means that if you are banned for a week/month/etc you can come back, but if you were perma-banned and you create another account you definately won't be allowed back. If you break any rules you receive a strike, three strikes get you a two week ban from the club, three two week bans result in a perma-ban from the club....yadda yadda yadda.
NINE Co-Owners and myself are the only ones allowed to approve/reject new members. If you are neither than LEAVE PENDING MEMBERS ALONE.
TEN Have decent grammar. Don't substitute words like "prolly" and "cos/cuz" for their proper meanings.
ELEVEN Make sure to say why you like your starter; "I <3 Mudkipz soooooo much!" is not enough.

* Repeatedly breaking any of these rules/asking about something that has already been clarified in the rules can either result in a ban or warning. If a ban is decided upon, I will decide how long it will last or if it is permanent.

* No, there is no secret sentence. No, there is no post count limit to join.

Hi my name is Larry and my favorite Starter is Feraligatr...I would like to join this club because I was in both of the other Starter Pokemon Clubs and I am on the SPC Forums.
I really hope that we can get some of the old members back. I will try to recruit some of them from the SPC Forums.

Hi!My name is Torpoleon!I like the Chimchar evo line.I would like to join this club because I like the starter Pokemon.Just in case you didn't know thi is the first start Pokemon club I want to join in.

29th November 2008, 12:13 AM
Larry, accepted. I'm really glad you joined :D And you shouldn't have posted on the other SPC site - they are p*ssed about this whole thing.

Torpoleon, accepted. Thanks for joining.

How about a topic from the very first SPC?

What is your favorite Starter, for looks only?

Mine would probably be Grovyle. I really like Pok&#233;mon that look/are agile and strong. Plus, I like a lot of the Grass-Type Starters :)

Mela
29th November 2008, 12:22 AM
My name's Mela.
My favourite starter ... Blaziken and Charizard ^^ My favourite Evo Line would be the Chikorita line so feminine and pretty ^^ I wanna be in this club because in every generation the startes have never dissappointed me and always become quick favs so I love em ^^

As you can tell I like the fire starters ^^

------------------------------------------------------------

My favourite based on looks ... well tehres many categories
CUTEST: Charmander Torchic Mudkip
COOLEST: Blaziken
PRETTIEST: Meganium

Eclipse
29th November 2008, 12:29 AM
Well, surely you must know me. I'm the crazy chick who owned this in the first place. As I've always said, Empoleon is my favourite.

Just as an observation on rule six, everyone is NOT the same, but equal.

What is your favorite Starter, for looks only?

Empoleon, clearly. I just love it's design in general.

Walcott
29th November 2008, 12:33 AM
Mela, accepted. Thanks for joining. You should love it here - as long as you're active ;) (this place usually gets really active, like in previous clubs.)

Eclipse, *tacklehugs* You know you're pretty much automatically accepted :D Thank you so much for not hating me and for joining too. And I'll make sure to change rules six :)


Torchic, Mudkip, and Charmander you just wanna squeeze 'em like a teddy bear XD COOLEST: Blaziken, how awesome can you get XDXD

Yeah, they are pretty cute :) And I also would've put Blaziken, for the same reasons that I said about Grovyle (except for the grass-type part).

Eclipse, *tacklehugs* You know you're pretty much automatically accepted :D Thank you so much for not hating me and for joining too. And I'll make sure to change rules six :)

*grins* Now why would I do that? I'm happy to see the club back in action. What's past is past. Let's all be dandy now and talk about starter pogeymans.

Has anyone seen the new Ranger art of Empoleon? I'm so jealous of that kid riding him. It's on Pokemon.com if you wanna see.

THANK YOU FOR REALIZING THAT. And yes, let us talk about these starter pogeymans :D

I've seen it. I'm not so jealous as if it would be a swimming Venusaur xD But I want to ride an Empoleon too :) I was thinking about getting the new Ranger game, but I'm not so sure now. I only mostly wanted it for the Manaphy Egg and special Riolu xP

And to let everyone know, I abuse smilies and the whole "xD & xP" concept xD (sorry :D) (sorry again :D)

Time for the topics!:
What is your favorite Starter, for looks only?
I would say Monferno!It just looks so awesome!It is like it has a mask on!

New topic!:
Do you think Monferno and Infernape are just like a remake of Combusken and Blaziken?
Yes,I do.Monferno and Infernape should be fire and I different type like psychic.Also so we won't have to deal with any psychic type move being super effective.

Eclipse
29th November 2008, 12:55 AM
I want ranger now after seeing that art.

Do you think Monferno and Infernape are just like a remake of Combusken and Blaziken?

No. One is a bird, the other is a monkey. Sure, they're the same types, but still, as far as design goes, they're starkly diffrent.

Walcott
29th November 2008, 12:55 AM
Do you think Monferno and Infernape are just like a remake of Combusken and Blaziken?

Yes, they pretty much are. They have the same ability (SHOCKER), a lot of the same moves and same moves that they can each learn from TMs & HMs and such, are weak against the same types of attacks, etc.

EDIT: Eclipse does have a point. Their designs are very different. But I guess as far as that goes, they are sort of the same. *is confused by all of this*

Also:


I want ranger now after seeing that art.

xD That's a perfect reason :D I like that you (not you specifically, but everyoen in general) can ride Pok&#233;mon and such in Pok&#233;mon Ranger. The Ranger games seem more realistic because of actually having your Pok&#233;mon walk with you than inside Pok&#233;balls all the time :p

Mela
29th November 2008, 1:32 AM
WOW So many new posts XDXD

Are Monferno and Infernape the same as Combusken and Blaziken?
I would have to say no ... just cause I personally think that the Chimchar line are my least favourite lines, it is my favourite Sinnoh line but not my favourite fire ... now I'm going off topic XD I think that they are very similar but very different XD


QUESTION I have no life and pretty much live through my computer and I was wondering if you would like me to make a banner for the club or something?

Walcott

You might want to get used to that :D


QUESTION I have no life and pretty much live through my computer and I was wondering if you would like me to make a banner for the club or something?

ANSWER

SEVEN Please post any fant art that you create in SPOILER tags. If I and the other members really like it than I will add it to this post under "Fan Art." SHOCKER.

So go ahead. Make sure it isn't too big and such, and that it's split if it needs to be :)

I added a link to an SPC that is off of SPPf. There is a different Owner and there are some members from previous SPCs that are there and refuse to come back to Serebii. You can join there as well if you'd like.

Sup Buraddo! I am here to join your club, and to give you a gift. But first, I must tell the required things in the rules. I am a fan of the Chimchar evolutionary line (Chimchar, Monferno and Infernape) and I am fan of your works. Now, for the donation. Here you go:

I guess I will rejoin..

My Favourtie Starter is still Blastoise so I like the Squirtle line. I also like the Torchic line also.

And Hi and all that.

Walcott
29th November 2008, 2:18 AM
Stoc15, accepted. And I can't add that banner/image to the Fan Art section. First off it isn't in a SPOILER tag and second it is wayyyyy to big. Plus it needs to be split when it is a big image ;)

latios reborn, accepted. I'm really glad yet another SPC veteran is here :) This is turning out nicely.


My Favourtie Starter is still Blastoise so I like the Squirtle line. I also like the Torchic line also.

And Hi and all that.

I can't believe I remembered your favorite Starter :D I guess it hasn't been that long, but there hasn't been an SPC since the beginning of the summer.

And hello and all that :) I like your introductions xP

What is your favorite Starter, for looks only?

I guess Infernape because of his new Platinum Sprite...I don't know why but his stance thing in Platinum looks so cool to me...Also Sceptile just because it looks beastly in Diamond and Pearl...

29th November 2008, 4:14 AM
Hey, I'd love to join! ^.^ My favorite starter is Quilava and I'd like to join this club because most of the time, the Starter pokemon are the best looking and you can make them the strongest.

What is your favorite Starter, for looks only?
Quilava or Wartortle. They're tied in my case. ^.^

29th November 2008, 4:40 AM
OMGZ, HI.

xD

Anyway.....


Hi.

I'm pretty sure I just said that, but yeah...

Join me please!

I mean, may I please join, BA, my bestest buddy evar? -bats eyelashes in a non-flirty way if that's possible- [/SUCKUP]

My fave starters are all the Kanto ones, Chikorita, Cyndaquil, Torchic, Mudkip, and all the Sinnohs. So I definitely belong here. :D

What is your favorite starter, for looks only?

I'd have to go with kirapwns up there, and say Quilava! It's awesome... I'm keeping one on my Emerald as is because it's just so cute and I don't wanna evolve it. [/NERD]

:D

P.S. I like smileys, too. :D

29th November 2008, 5:09 AM
My closing is sometimes "and yeah" :D

For me it would be "and such" :D

@Larry, Infernape's sprite from Platinum does look cool. Your post actually made me go check xP

kirapwns, accepted. Glad you could join in on the SPC!

Blue_Mew22, accepted. I'm excited that you joined. Thanks :) You will have fun here, I just know it. And did you join the SPC forum thingy? Unless there is another Sapphire Rose out there 0.o


-bats eyelashes in a non-flirty way if that's possible-

I have long (or so I'm told) eyelashes, and sometimes I blink a lot by habit and people think I'm flirting with them xD


So I definitely belong here.

No you dont. Get out. xDD

I think you had the longest post besides the first one BM :)


P.S. I like smileys, too. :D

Madness.

I'm off to update first post. Whee~

EDIT: What is your favorite Starter BM? Your name needs a color sprite next to it on the Member List :D

P.S. I think my post beats your's now :p

EDIT2: I changed the whole colors thing to the "traditional" sprites next to people's names.

Hi there! Well, there's no need to say my name, it already there :D I would like to join this club because I love starter Pokemon, including Ash's Pikachu. So, my favourite of all current starters has to be... um... Grotle (Turtwig). I like how it's designed & so on. It's a tough choice, but meh, I still have to choose, so Grotle (Turtwig) it is! :) So, I hope I'm accepted. *shot*

Thank you! I promise you wont regret my dedication to the club. ^.^

New topic: Normally when you pick for starters, do you go by element, looks, or etc?
I usually go for element, but looks also count for me. Like I'm usually a water fan, but in Johto, I picked Cyndaquil since its evolutions looked alot better than Totodiles.

Jason-Kun
29th November 2008, 6:17 AM
May I join? I love that starters. Well most of them, I dun really like the Chimchar, Totdile, or Treeko lines much. My favorite starter? Well I have different categories. they are:

Kanto

From Kanto, Squirtle and Charmander are tied for favorites as they're both so cute and both have helped me alot in my (now gone) copy of FireRed.

Johto

Of the Johto starters, I love Cyndaquil. Not only is it cute, but it's also pretty powerful. Just like I like them.

Hoenn

My favorite Hoenn starter is a tie between Torchic and Mudkip. Torchic is pretty powerful, whilst I find Mudkips to be adorable.

Shinnoh?

Piplup. They are both cute and power, just how I like em.

Now for my favorite starters by type.

Water

My favorite water starter is Piplup. It's like having both Squirle and Mudkip in one. It's cute, playful, and all around a good starter.

Grass

Chikorita. Chikoritea are agile and pretty. I love their designs, they just make me want toh hug them.

Fire

Cyndaquil is by far my favorite fire starter. It's cute, fast, and pretty powerful. Don't you just want to hug em?

Overall

Overall I guess you'd have to say my favorite starter and line is a tie between Piplup and Mudkip's line, although I'll admit to Swampert and Empeleon being epic. Oh I can't choose.

Mela
29th November 2008, 11:20 AM
WOW Yay new members XD I just got home so I'll start on the banners.

Is 450x150 ok?

Ok I've finished 4 banners, theyre basically the same but each one has the starters from the 4 generations, I'll be making more so I'm not showing them yet :P

Larry
29th November 2008, 4:01 PM
Normally when you pick for starters, do you go by element, looks, or etc?

I Prefer water just because I like them better...but I also go for looks too. I have never picked a Grass type as my first starter but if I restart the game I will try out the others...

SapphireRose
29th November 2008, 5:53 PM
Yay! I is accepted!

Yes, I am Sapphire Rose on SPC forums. But I probably won't go back because I love Serebii too much. xD

We have way too much in common, it's almost scaring me, BA. I have naturally long eyelashes too, so I don't need mascara or anything. Well, I'm sure you don't need mascara either.... :D

Awww, fine, I'll leave... JK, I'm stayin'! =D

Yesss, I'm so awesome like that! I'm hoping to get a longer post than you now, but I doubt it'll happen.

If I had to choose ONE (and I do, so yeah), then I'd have to go with Squirtle because I had one on the first Pok&#233;mon game I ever owned, so Squirtle's are very close to my heart. <3

The colors were confusing. @_@ Yay for a cute little Squirtle sprite! :D

PS. So many smileys!! xD


Ohyus, I forgot to answer questions and such.

For Kanto, my fave starter is either Charmander or Squirtle, it's hard to choose, but I think I like Squirtle a bit more, thus the ultimate fave of Squirtle. xD

For Johto, I don't have any games (hoping to get Gold or Crystal though), but I say that my fave for this is Cyndaquil with Chikorita being a very close second.

For Hoenn, I love either Mudkip or Torchic. Never really liked the grass starters, can ya tell?

For Sinnoh, again, I don't own any games (or a DS, for that matter. >.<), but I like Piplup and Chimchar better than Turtwig. The only reason I don't like Turtwig is 'cause of his evolutions.

Normally when you pick for starters, do you go by element, looks, or etc?

I go by element, looks, and how useful/powerful it will be by the end of the game. I go by type because I set up a team with all different types, no repeats. Looks just because I don't want an ugly starter. ^^; And I need a powerful attacker since I never waste my time with defense.

BA: I think my post is longer now. :D

I would like to join, I like most off the starters but here are my favs

Empoleon,Swampert,Feraligatr,Infernape,Charizard and Spectile.

if it was type then it qwould be Swampert as it takes out most things with its typing :D.

Normally when you pick for starters, do you go by element, looks, or etc?

I mainly already know what starter im, going to get but i think i do it by type AND look but the type off its full evo for me so yer........

Do you think Monferno and Infernape are just like a remake of Combusken and Blaziken?

Actually not really. I though about for a minute and thinking they are both Fire and Fighting types but other than that I don't really see other similarites...That is about the looks and I don't really know the stats.

Jason-Kun, accepeted. Could you please choose one? I need it for the Member List and you will need it if you want a userbar.

S.Bustathedog, accepted. I will put Mudkip by your name as your favorite Starter, but if you'd like a different one, please tell me. Thanks :)

I'm not really sure. When I play a game for the first time I just pick by which one I like the best. When I start a game over I guess I choose by which one I think would be better in the long run.

I'll add a Squirtle next to your name BM :D And I love Serebii too! You do have the longest post now xD

Just so everyone knows, I'm working on userbars for people's sigs. You wont have to have one in your sig, but it would be nice for advertisement and such. As for the banners by Mela, could you please PM me one of them so I have an idea on what they look like?

Sure however you might need to wait, I am currently on my sister's computer and the banners are on my computer and for some reason, the computer is stuffing up and it says "NO VIDEO INPUT" so I'm trying to find a cord thats not plugged in .... I'll send them as soon as I fix my computer ^^

May I start a new Topic?

Out of all the regions, which has the best starters all together?

My personal opinion is Kanto.

I think Johto has really cute starters {Chikorita Cyndaquil Totodile} but when they evolve the middle evolutions are kinda weird and the final stage of evolution for Johto was really awesome but coulda been better.

Hoenn was really good, I think that it comes a VERY VERY close second because Blaziken is my favourite starter, but as a whole I kinda lost it through the Treecko line.

Sinnoh ... out of the four I'd say i like the sinnoh starters the least, but I still like them, its just with the Sinnoh starters theres something missing, with the past starters I'd scream and be all wow these are so cool, but I didn't do that with the Sinnoh ones :(

However with the Kanto starters I think that I like them as a whole best, Charizard is my second favourite starter and I think that Squirtle Bulbasaur and Charmander are just total UBER cute XDXD And their evolutions relate well and yeah ^^

WOW Long post O_O

That's fine, just send them whenever you can :)

Hoenn. Even though my favorite Starter is from Kanto, I don't really like the Charmander and Squirtle evolution lines. I do like Squirtle and its evolutions, but something just made it uninteresting to me. MEH. As for Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard I just don;t like them much at all because so many other people do :\ I'm not that great when it comes to reasons for liking things.

Johto did have great starters, but like Mela said, the middle ebolutions are a little strange. I'd also say that they're sort of repetitive. The Kanto starters had middle ebolutions that were mostly bigger and had a few "upgrades" form their predecessors - same thing with Johto starters.

Hoenn....gotta love 'em :D

The Sinnoh ones were alright. I'm not a big fan of the Chimchar and Piplup lines. Dunno why. MEH :p Turtwig seems pretty cool and it's similiar to Bulbasaur. I also LOVE Torterra. It is amazing to me.

I started the Hoenn starter userbars, but then I stopped. I think I'll finish them as well as the Sinnoh ones tomorrow. Monday at the lastest because I have no school :D

Hmm... well, normally a combo of both element & looks. Normally fire or grass types, plus the looks, which I don't go for 'cuteness'. Just, when it clicks, I'll like it.

I think Hoenn just because they have good stats and Swampert is really big in Competitive battling and Sceptile is also really good due to it's speed and it learns Dragon Pulse which is kinda cool.

Alright, since no one is posting, I think we need a new topic:

What Starter should be replace by an already existing Pokémon(and what Pokémon would that be)?

In my opinion, Piplup. I'm not saying that I don't like it, but Piplup looks like a regualr Pokémon that would be found by fishing/surfing. I think that Piplup should be replaced by either the Spheal or Azurill evolution lines - they would both be awesome as starters.

IcyDragon0605

I agree completely with Aipom that Piplup should be replaced by Spheal. Spheal looks like a starter and if he was a starter in the beginning then nobody would find this idea odd. I always though that Spheal, Numel, and Seedot should replace Treecko, Torchic, and Mudkip.

Yeah, I would agree that the Hoenn Starters are way to great to be replaced. Plus, I don't really think Numel looks like a Starter.

I know that the Hoenn starters are great but I think the trio I mentioned would also be great. Numel dosn't look TOO much like a starter but if we got used to the idea.....

Venasaur, because of his huge flower back.

I always though Turtwig was a fusion of Bulbsaur and Squirtle. I've noticed how some starters look alike:

Torchic = Piplup
Charmander = Treecko (in a way, both dragon)
etc.

Johto is the only region that had unique starters in my opinion.

latios reborn
1st December 2008, 4:35 AM
Torchic = Piplup

Yes I guess they do both being in a sense baby birds.


Charmander = Treecko (in a way, both dragon)

I think I may need an example on this.

The only aspect of Squirtle is like Turtwig would be the shell.

Hi! My name is Flobots Fan (Although in real life it's Nick)! I'm most fond of the Johto starters. My favorite starter line would be the Cyndaquil line. Mostly because of they're movesets and typing. I always chose them for second generation and i've been breeding them in diamond.
I also like the turtwig and torchic lines.
I'm on Serebii often and i have pretty good grammar.

New Topic?

What's your opinion on who got the starters in the anime?
I think that it was nice how Ash got the starters in Kanto and Johto, they were some of the best in the generation.

I think that Kanto/Johto brought a mix of new and old Pokemon however with the Hoenn Pokemon they were all new Pokemon, and I mean new as in not connected to any previous Pokemon in terms of evolution, they were all new, I counted and there were only 2 Pokemon that were connected to previous generations: Azurill and Wynaut, so because of this then its understandable that Ash didn't get all of the starters. And well since May had to get one then Brock shoulda gotten one XDXD Yeah ... wow I went off topic for awhile.

But I do think that the way they gave out starters in Sinnoh were pretty weird, going back on what I was saying, the reason why I don't like the 4th Gen that much was because there weren't that many new Pokemon, most of them were just evolved forms or pre-evolved forms of Pokemon, and can I just say only 4 new fire pokemon? 3 are starters and one is a legendary? Not cool! ... Getting back on topic I think that Ash shouldn't have received Turtwig, maybe Brock should have gotten him as Turtwig's personality suits Brocks and being a slow Pokemon kind of goes against Ash's battle style: fast and powerful.

Wow long long pointless rant ^^"

What's your opinion on who got the starters in the Anim&#233;?

I'm okay with everything. Ash having Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, Cyndaquil, Chikorita, and Totodile for Kanto and Johto didn't bother me much at all. I liked how May, Ash, and Brock each got one in Hoenn, mostly because that hadn't happened before (with Ash hoarding all the starters to himself xD). Blaziken fit with May really well as did Sceptile and Marshtomp for Ash and Brock respectively. It was also fun in Sinnoh when the writers put a little twist on the who gets what starter thing - Paul having Chimchar and later releasing it only to have Ash capture it. Turtwig fits well with Ash in my opinion. Piplup annoys the h*ll outta me though >____>

Hm, hard question. I have a great liking for them all. ><;; But I'd have to say Kanto because they are the ones that started it all. You do have to give them credit for that.

Don't really care about the anime, actually. I am annoyed that Ash got almost every single starter except for Hoenn. Aren't starters extremely rare? So the fact that Ash got em all does bug me.

What Starter should be replace by an already existing Pok&#233;mon(and what Pok&#233;mon would that be)?

Hmmm... This one is a hard topic for me. My favourite starter is Bulbsasaur from Kanto, but l dont like squritle or charmander. I also like Torchic and evos a lot but l hate treeko and evos, which means either Johto starters because I dont like or hate any of them, or Sinnoh for the same reasons as l like Johto.
What's your opinion on who got the starters in the anime?
It also bothers me that Ash got nerly all the starters. I think Ash should not hyave gotten almost all of them.

I have a few choices, actually: either Bulbasaur, Aipom, Miltank, or (yeah, I hate to sound noobish) Manaphy. Bulbasaur is completely awesome in my opinion, which is why it's my starter choice here ^^; Aipom use to be my favorite Pok&#233;mon, but isn't now. I still really like it, and it would be pretty cool to have one. Miltank looks awesome and strong, so I think that would be a good choice. And Manaphy......I dunno, I'm reading a Fic with a Manaphy (Destiny Journies: Healing of Hearts) and one of the main characters has a Manaphy. They sound awesome and I've been becoming a fan of the little water Legendary ^______________^

I don't actually play the games, but based on the official artwork, info, and anime, so far my favourite region has to be Sinnoh for the best starters. It's completely my opinion. Maybe I'm biased.. No, I'm not biased. I personally think so.

Excellent banners Mela especially the first four : )
If you could have any Pokémon as your Starting Pokémon, which would it be and why?
Probably Bulbasaur even though it is already a starter pokemon because it is probably tied my favourite pokemon with a few others. It is really cute and it's evos are especially strong!!
other than Bulbasaur mebe a Igglybuff as it too is one on my favs, although it is really weak it is adorable and its evos would be really good battlers putting the opponents to sleep and all the stuff.
As for my final two choices l would have either a Glameom because it is really fast and it can learn some really strategic moves and it has fast attacks, and its evo may be ugly but it would own heaps of pokemon. And a Swinub seeing as it has super cool, super tough evos especially Mamoswine with its variety of powerful attacks.

If you could have any Pokémon as your Starting Pokémon, which would it be and why?

I would have to say Eevee for it's may evolutions or Horsea which evolves into one of my favourite water types.

If you could change an ability of any starter what would it be?

Don't really know I generally ignore the abilities of all pokemon except Magcargo which I use to hatch eggs.

I wish the starters would have different abilities because it is the same thing basically for all of them and it would be nice to have different ones on the starters...

Awesome. I'll go try to add them again.


Uhmm, on the Blastoise one, it says "Wartortle".

Yeah, I should probably fix that xP MEH, I will later.

If you could change an ability of any starter what would it be?

I would definately give them something that would be more useful, like (I forget what it's called) the one where their HP is restored in the rain. Something like that, something that we actually can notice is working. I can never tell the difference when my Infernape's fire moves are 'upped in a pinch' or whatever. BLAH.

Right then. So, for the third time, i'm going to rejoin, as long as it doesn't end up like the last 2 clubs.....

You probably know by now that I like the Totodile line, and i'm not going to be as active as in the last club/s because I get, like, 2 hours a week free time.

Anyways, it's nice to be back?

Ok this is just a heads up that I will not be as active then I normally would be as my computer is broken and I can only use my sister's and dad's computers and sometimes the internet doesn't work ==" right when holidays start too ... this can be a double edged sword as I can either be really busy like this weekend where I had 2 sleepovers in 2 nights and didn't go home for like four days or I can be a lazy bum and be on the computer all day long depends ^^"

Time to answer my own topic ^^"

Well I read the earlier posts and I agree with every single one. First of all I ignore them because A) They're all the same and B) You don't notice the change. And I think that letting them heal when they're attacked with an attack of the same type is useful but the point of Blaze Torrent and Overgrow (i THINK) was to give the starters a better chance at winning the fight when they're losing cause since you have your starter from the beginning it should be the strongest (Unless you PC it) ... and if it's losing then you will lose ... do you get what I'm trying to say =="

new topic: If water, fire and grass were not the starter types what other type triangle would you want and what pokemon of their types would you have?(type triangles are like fire, water and grass, fire is super effective against grass, grass is super effective against water and water is super effective against fire.

If Water, Fire, and Grass were not the Starter Types what other Type Triangle would you want and what Pok&#233;mon of those types would you have?

Nice topic, BTW. I'd would like to see an Electric-Flying-Fighting. It would be quite interesting to see Pok&#233;mon like Mareep, Pidgey, and Machop as Starters :D

hi my name is Aaron/Zorg. I like most starters like the totodile, turtwig and squirtle evo lines but mainly the Totodile evo line.

If Water, Fire, and Grass were not the Starter Types what other Type Triangle would you want and what Pok&#233;mon of those types would you have?
Ice Dragon Fire, imagine the possibilities! All major pokemon types, although everyone might go for dragon just cause it's dragon. I'd like to see:
Ice: Spheal? Only Pokemon I can think of.
Dragon: Dratini, just because its mainly pure except for Dragonite but hey look at the charmander line and some of the others are dual type that just may be too unfair for a starter.
Fire: Eh maybe stick to some of the original starters that we got, they're all good ^^

On another note on the front page it says we might have contests and I was wondering if we can start one or plan one or something, they sound fun ^^

Oh and it turns out I prob won't be as MIA as I thought I'd be, turns out my dad's computer is working fine ^^ I might have the odd day or so but wh odoesn't ^^

I don't really care about abilities. ^^;

If Water, Fire, and Grass were not the Starter Types what other Type Triangle would you want and what Pokémon of those types would you have?

I'll go Fighting, Dark, Psychic with Machop (except for the fact that Machamp is obtained by trading, I'd just go with level-up), Houndour, and Ralts. I would choose any of em. ^^;

11th December 2008, 3:28 AM
Hmm I never knew there were so many different type triangles XDXD

Let's see ... new topic ^^
Out of all the fully evolved starters do you think is the strongest?

I hope that this topic will only be opinions and not turn anything badly or anything of that sort.

My choice is Charizard, it's my second favourite starter and I think its the strongest because it has a VAST range of attacks due to it having dragon attacks and all that sorts and I think that because it can fly it will have an advantage (not in a game perspective) but it also will be usefull against Torterra (game perspective). That's my opinion ^^

PS: Level up my Pokeball ^^

latios reborn
11th December 2008, 4:46 AM
Out of all the fully evolved starters do you think is the strongest?

Either Blastoise, Venasaur, Meganium or Torterra. Mainly as they are sturdy and could take on attacks and hand them out just as strong. Blaziken could also do well as part fighting.

PikaCharmander
11th December 2008, 12:37 PM

Meh. Dunno, Don't care. I like Pokemon for Pokemon, not based on how strong they are or EVs or whatever. Call me a nub but that's what I think.

In other news, I finally got a shiny Shinx, although it's a Luxray now. It's so awesome!

Walcott
12th December 2008, 2:48 AM

Hmm.....dunno. Don't really care; pretty much what Eclipse said. All of them have different things that amke them stronger. Plus, if they were all put in a battle (theoretically), Charizard, Typlosion, Blaziken, and Infernape would defeat Venusaur.....and such.


In other news, I finally got a shiny Shinx, although it's a Luxray now. It's so awesome!

:D That's awesome. I only have a shiny Lombre (caught as a Lotad) that I found before I restart my Sapphire. I'm not an idiot, so I obviously caught it and sent it to Diamond before restarting :p

For another topic, I guess:

Have you ever gotten a shiny (regular or starter) Pok&#233;mon? If so, where/when/what game/etc.

Well, um....Lotad, obviously. Caught in Sapphire before I restarted it and it's now on Diamond (or maybe Ranch, but it now "belongs" to my Diamond character).

Yup yup.

Didn't get any shinies in hoenn or Kanto which sucked (but then again I forgot about them)

And now I have quite a few that I won't list but will give the basics like I have all fully evolved starters shiny, all eevee evolutions shiny, few random starters all bird pokemon Ash has had and a general few randoms including a few legendaries.

Blastoise, Torterra and Venasaur mabe because they are probably in my opinion the sturdiest and can deal out the most powerful attacks, but then again mabe Charizaed only because it van fly and that is a huge advantage over all the other starters. not game wise but of Anime.

Yes, I have(yes still have) a shiny charizard. Off WiFi I asked for a female charizard and then turns out the person gave me a shiny AND level 100.
How cool is that! Also the game was Dimond and I think I traded a level 52 Pigiot.

^Same as Torpoleon...about the inactive thing. I try!! :redface:

I have a level 100 shiny Celebi that I got from my cousin (ILOVEYOU,AARON) and that's my entire shiny collection. Yeah, I have a ton. I did find a shiny Duskull once and a shiny Gloom, but that was on my Ruby game (Celebi's on Emerald) and I restarted and didn't trade my shinies. I was young and didn't know shinies were rare. ><;;

My friend found a shiny Oddish in the Safari Zone, too. She looks at the screen, and she's like, "OMIGOSH,IT'SGREEN,ISWEARIT'SGREEN!!!!!111oneeleven". -freak out, freak out, freak out-

xD

Out of all the fully evolved starters do you think is the strongest?

Hm. Maybe Swampert due to the duel type. Resistant to Electric type, which would sizzle all the other water starters (Empoleon included? Don't have DPPt...), but also ultra-affected by Grass. I dunno. Charizard is great, but you do have that 4x Rock weakness...

TurtwigFan1, accepted. Were you in one of the other SPCs? I think I remember you.

I'll make a new topic. Remember, anyone is allowed as long as their isn't already two (or is it three? I forget.) topics being answered.

New topic:

Do you treat your Starters differently than your other Pok&#233;mon?

I certainly do. If I get a game for the first time (like getting Sapphire before Ruby) I treat the starter better than I would any otehr Pok&#233;mon. I NEVER give it away and train it more than the others. But if I get a game after another (like getting Ruby after Sapphire) than I try to keep the training equal, because I will most likely trade it to the other game for some crap Pok&#233;mon. This way I have more than one of the starters on one game.

Second place for me... hmm... *inserts uh... insert pots and pans :D* Grovyle! Yes-sir-ee, Grovyle it is. Grovyle came in a close second & *inserts bells* Quilava comes a super close 3rd. OK, to elaborate more on Grotle. The colour scheme is nice, I like the bushes/shrubs on its back...

SapphireRose
14th December 2008, 4:57 PM
Do you treat your Starters differently than your other Pok&#233;mon?

Yeah, sure. I think. My starters are always in my party (I've only ditched a starter once and that was a Grovyle. Sorry, elyvorg. =/). My starter is mostly always a couple levels ahead of my other Pok&#233;s, but I do try to balance out their levels when training. And I only trained one Level 100 Pok&#233; myself and that was my precious Swampert on Emerald. Luffs you much, Mudsie! =^_^=

Which is your favourite middle-evolution of a starter Pok&#233;mon?

Lessee, there's:

Ivysaur
Charmeleon
Wartortle
Bayleef
Quilava
Croconaw
Grovyle (elyvorg. xD)
Combusken
Marshtomp
Grotle
Monferno
Prinplup

I'd say my favorite out of all of those would be Charmeleon or Quilava. I don't really like middle evos that much. =/ The actual starters are so much cooler. xD

For my own topic now....

Which of the final evos is your favorite?

The final evos are:

Venusaur
Charizard
Blastoise
Meganium
Typhlosion
Feraligatr
Sceptile
Blaziken
Swampert
Torterra
Infernape
Empoleon

For me, my favorites are Charizard, Blastoise, Meganium, Swampert, and Empoleon. Yeah, I pretty much love all the water starters. xD

I really like Ivysaur, Grovyle, and Grotle. I love a lot of the Grass Starters except for the Chikorita line - sorry Mela. Quilava and Combusken are awesome too along with Wartortle. Those six are the only middle-evos I like :)

Which of the final evos is your favorite?

Hmmm....Venusaur. Definately Venusaur. I do like the evos of the middle-evos stated in the above topic except for Typlosion.

Yup yup.

Mr. E Goods
15th December 2008, 11:03 PM
Which of the final evos is your favorite?
For me my favourite final evo starter would be Venasaur closly followed by Blaziken and empoleon. Venasaur and its smaller evos are always my favourites because their really sturdy and strong. They also look cool, and Bulbasaur is cute.
Which is your favourite middle-evolution of a starter Pok&#233;mon?
It is Ivysaur because it is in the Bulbasaur evo line and it looks cool. It, like Bayleef, uses vines and shoots out leaves, and has heaps of status problem attacks makes it have an advantage over other pokemon.

I think it may have been Squirtle, but that's only if I shared Blue with my cousin, because she had a Squirtle named Beauty xD I don't think I had a Pok&#233;mon game way back then; I think I started with the Johto games.

Type is the first one. I think of how useful it will be in the future. Looks and how much I like it would be the second. And that's pretty much it. Sometimes, I'll choose a starter because it's missing from my Dex and sometimes, I'll pick it because it's a tradition on a particular game.

And there's my two cents on that. :D

I would have to go for looks.. As I usually go with the water type on 2 occasions I didn't.
(Instead I chose Chikorita and Torchic instead of Totodile and Mudkip)

My first was Squirtle.

shaymin_girl, accepted. Thanks for joining, but watch the one-liners please - same for you Mela.

If you could be any Starter Pok&#233;mon, including 3rd and 2nd evolutions, who would you be?

I dunno....any of the starters except for the second generation ones. I like the rest a lot and wouldn't mind being on of them.

I'm so excited - Mix is back and I got an iTouch and Shadows of Almia for Christmas :D :D :D

Hi my name is IceWater and my favorite starter is the piplup evolution line. I would like to join this club because just like all of you I like the starter pokemon and my team cannot be completed without a starter pokemon.I would try my best to be an active member of the club and my best to follow the rules.

If you could change the type of a starter based on its appearance which would you change?
- I think that the Bulbasaur line don't really look Poison typed, if I had to I'd keep Venusaur as a Poison and Grass type but keep Bulbasaur and Ivysaur as pure Grass.
- I also think that Charizard looks like a Dragon type but since there are no triple types and making a starter a Dragon type is a bit unfair I don't think it wise to change its type.
- This is also pretty random but I think that Typhlosion might do well as a dual type of Dark and Fire ... no idea why though O_o

Same with me I don't think bulbasaur should be grass/poison, just grass. It doesn't really look poisonous and no other starter has a second type. The others I would just leave.

Alright, I'm sorry to have to do this, but PikaCharmander now has one strike. It'll expire soon, but I have to give it out since you posted a one-liner :(

Just Bulabasuar with his Grass/Poison Type. Bulbasaur really doesn't look like a Pok&#233;mon that would be considered poisonous, like Mr. E Goods said. And maybe make Prinplup Water/Steel like Empoleon - it looks like it could have steel properties.

Like everyone said Bulbasaur really does not look like a poison pokemon,it would have been better if it was a pure grass.The other starters look like there types, so I have no problem with them.

SapphireRose

I agree with all of you that Bulbasaur doesn't really look poisonous. He doesn't ever learn any poison moves as a Bulbasaur (or does he?), so I don't think it should be Poison typed. Empoleon, too. Why would a Water type have a Steel type part to it? Empoleon's a penguin, not a steel bar. -_-

Hi, my name's dabottle and I would like to join because I know Pok&#233;mon wouldn't be the same without starters and they rock. My favs are Treecko and Piplup (see my sig).I love the starters because they're all so cool. I will try and be active and would love to be accepted.

Once again, Bulbasaur, as it only looks Grass-type. Also Prinplup, it looks Steel-type. I'd have to say that Feraligatr looks part-Fighting too. It's big and bulky, so it looks like it'd be great as a fighter.

30th December 2008, 11:32 PM
Dabottle, accepted. Please use better grammar in the future please. And do you like Treecko or Piplup better, this way you have a sprite next to your name.

Topic Timezzz

What Pokémon did you start off with in D/P? What was your team?

I chose Chimchar, mostly because of how it looked and I knew it would be awesome in the long run. My team was Infernape, Luxray, Roserade, Gastrodon....I don't remember the rest. I pretty much caught more Pokémon and alternated between them. When I faced and beat the Elite Four I had with me: Infernape, Luxray, Roserade, Mantyke, Dialga, and a Bronzong.

EDIT: Whenever anyone has fifty posts in the club tell me so I can move you on the Member List ;D

I had Turtwig, it was either that or Chimchar, and I decided that Turtwig seemed the better choice .... actually I totally forgot the reaspn why T_T

I had Torterra Staraptor Luxray Rapidash Floatzel
That was my main team and I alternated between Beautifly, Sneasel, Budew and other Pokemon in that last spot.

Grotle. I love its design, it's looks, its attack, and well... everything. Partially also because it's the evolved form of Turtwig, and all of them in Turtwig's evo line are awesome.

Haha, yes, it was. I thought that it should be lowered so people can rank up more easily :) And to count all you do is hole your cursor over the envelope next to the thread title. The one that has a dot to show you've posted in the thread.


Ok can I have Treecko please.

Yup yup. Thanks for replying.

C'MON PEOPLE, MAKE MORE TOPICS!

How far have you gone just to get the right starter?

I've restarted games many times and have saved games just before getting the Pokémon just so I can get the right gender, and, um....I think that's it. Crap, this wasn't that good of a topic xP

Normally before playing a game I research my Pokemon, the routes etc. because when I go into a game without knowing what's going to happen it kinda makes me feel uneasy, so I research the moves I want etc.

latios reborn

Again this is something I generally don't care about I just train them and get them to have all offensive attacks.

Mela
5th January 2009, 11:20 AM
In training your Pokemon, what do you choose when it comes to attacks e.g. All Attacking Attacks or One Stat, One Status and 2 Attack etc.
I always have at least two attacking attacks, one physical and one special and one has to have STAB. The other two spots normally go to a different typed attack and a status one, often increasing my attacks, this is how I normally choose but sometimes its stats help as well.

Walcott
10th January 2009, 9:35 PM
In training your Pok&#233;mon, what do you choose when it comes to attacks? (e.x. All attacking-attacks, one stat, one status and two attack, etc.

I always make sure to have a lot of attacking-attacks, and never have stat-raising/lowering moves. For the Pok&#233;mon that I train a lot, I only have the know more offensive moves, and on others that I just trian with I give them moves to paralyze, confuse, posion, etc. as well as the attacking-attacks.

You guys need to post more T____T

11th January 2009, 5:07 AM
*drags self in* >_> Alright, listen, I've decided to break my vow and join this club. (for multiple reasons...) One (ongoing) reason is becaue of TT's leadership in the other club. It's kinda like a dictatorship... I mean, I know not everything can and should go my way, but seriously...
Another reason is because I was simply banned for some dumb misunderstanding. (one that I can't resolve because of lack of available communication) But lets not talk about that...

Well I guess I'd better get down to business:
May I please join the club? My favorite Starter line is Squirtle (obviously =P), my name is Ben (Hydro King), and I'd like to join because I want to make some new friends who like the Starters as much as I do! =)

So yeah, I hope to get to know a few of you guys! ^_^

Walcott
13th January 2009, 1:32 AM
Hydro King, accepted. I don't want to sound rude, but I really don;t care if you're breaking your "vow" to the others on TT's Forums. You are your own person, so it shouldn't matter what they think. And so what - it's just a club. You were banned on the forums for a misunderstanding, which I understand. I'm not trying to say that it makes me better or something than TT, but you technically weren't forcing religion on E. All you did was offer it and give her suggestions in case she came to that conclusion. Maybe TT was just mad that you have been bringing religion into a lot of things on his site. Meh, I really don't mind here, as long as you don't break the SPPf rules about religion (if there are any - I'm pretty sure I remember them being there, but I haven't looked at that thread in a while >.<).

Anyone got a topic? I'm tired of making so many....and it doesn't have to be about starters/Pok&#233;mon, as long as there is already one Pok&#233;mon-related being answered. Heck, anyone can make two topics if they want.

I'm off to update the first post to add HK - another Veteran Member! Yay :)

Hello there, people! I am back! LOL.
Well, I was told about the Newest SPC and decided to join. Again.

I prefer the Totodile evo line, but on the other club, I was a Croconaw... Does it affect this club?

As for the reason of me joining, I was in the old club. and got some amazing memoreis from then.

13th January 2009, 2:13 AM
Sp1derp1g, accepted. I'm happy to see yet another Veteran Member :) I hope more people just join already so this club can be somewhat as active as the others. Otherwise we will never get to the thousand post mark before next year xD

EDIT: And you are still a Croconaw SP - until you have a combined number of two hundred posts in this SPC and the old one.

EDIT2: New "Read the Rules" banner, added a paragraph about Veteran Memebrs and their perks from regular members, and a small bit on how to become a Co-Owner.

13th January 2009, 5:19 AM
Yeah, thanks, BA. =) I just felt really bad for E... I would've just PMed her instead if I knew this were going to happen. =/
I would try to discuss it with TT, but I don't have any way to communicat with him directly since he doesn't go on Serebii anymore. I suppose I could always talk to him through someone else, but I really can't be bothered to do so. As you said, it's only a club...

What is your favorite Starter, for looks only?
Why Blastoise of course! He looks cool, strong, and like he'd be faithful to his trainer. And seeing a giant turtle shoot powerful jets of water from pipes on its shell looks plain awesome! 8) (in the anime of course! =P)

I'll answer more topics once my internet has stopped acting up.

Also, BA, I'm happy with being treated just like any other ordinary memeber of the club. I don't need any special "perks" or anything just cause I was in the first club...but if you insist... Thanks!

Edit: Whoops - Hello, SP! Haven't seen you for a while... Great to see ya!

Let's see new topic new topic ... it can be about anything Pokemon related in general?

Out of all the Eeveelutions which is your favourite and why?
Hope this is allowed. Our of all the Eeveelutions ... I like all of them but my top favourites are:
- Leafeon; Leafeon has the elegance about it and it looks sooo pretty XD
- Espeon&Umbreon; I like these two, I can't decide which I like more.
- Flareon; It is one of the cutest, it looks all fluffy and everything ^^

Hehe yeah I base this off looks because I'm not fussed about stats and all that. But I do like all the other ones too.

Out of all the Eeveelutions which is your favourite and why?
Yeah, I think this topic'd be allowed. I mean only so many topics can be made about the Starters. (and Pokemon in general for that matter) As long as there aren't too many, I'm sure BA wouldn't mind... ...er, hopefully. ^_^;
It's a toss up between Flareon and Umbreon, but I've been using Flareon in competitive battling more often so I'll say Flareon. Don't get me wrong though - they're both two of my favorite Pokemon out there. =)

Walcott
14th January 2009, 1:06 AM
I'm fine with the topic, I guess. Just...I dunno, the mods could be picky about it, saying that it should be discussed in the Eeveelutions Club, but I think it's fine - it relates to Pok&#233;mon at least, right? Not like the "What's your favorite food?" topic and others like it in the old Clubs xD

Out of all the Eeveelutions which is your favourite and why?
I like the ones that are more elegant - ones like Espeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, and Glaceon. The other three (not counting Eevee) just don't appeal well to me.....never really did. Espeon and Umbreon have always been some of my favorites, mostly becuse of them being introduced through the "evolves during night/day" method of evolution. Leafeon and Glaceon have awesome ways of evolving as well, and they look great.

EDIT: BTW HK, I talked to TT....well I posted about the situation. He isn't online right now, so I'll keep checking to see what he says ;)

Hello Hydro King and Sp1derp1g ^^

Hmm I'm trying to think of a new topic T_T
Out of all the starters that Ash has caught in the anime, which do you think is stronger and which has the most personality.
This topic might have the same answer but ohh wells.
Out of all the starters I think his strongest are: Bulbasaur, Charizard, I guess Sceptile and although I wouldn't say its his strongest but I think that Cyndaquil was his strongest Johto Pokemon.

The ones with most personality ... Charizard of course, and even after he started trusting Ash he was cool. I think all of his Johto starters have heaps of personality, if you can remember back to a Johto epsidoe when Ash was tring to show Gary his Pokemon and the scene was so funny it was like Totodile dancing, Noctowl sleeping, Chikorita hugging Ash and Cyndaquil jsut went walking off somewhere. That was funny.

Sp1derp1g

Well, I've only ever watched up to half-way through the Johto saga, but anyways... I think Charizard is the strongest and that even though he did have a lot of personality, (I hate to say it) Pikachu definitely has more.


EDIT: BTW HK, I talked to TT....well I posted about the situation. He isn't online right now, so I'll keep checking to see what he says ;)

HOLY CRAP!!

I haven't posted on here since about Christmas!! Shame, shame on me, so much shame!! :(

What Pok&#233;mon did you start off with in D/P? What was your team?

Eh, I have Diamond but no DS, which is odd, but I started it already on my best friend's DS and I chose a Piplup. Water types ftw! I shall have an Empoleon, Luxray, Staraptor, Lucario, Roserade, and Rapidash when I finish.

How far have you gone just to get the right starter?

I've just SR'd for gender and nature. That's it.

In training your Pok&#233;mon, what do you choose when it comes to attacks? (e.x. All attacking-attacks, one stat, one status and two attack, etc.)

All offesive. I hate defensive moves and think they're a total waste of time. Kill the opponent and move on, that's my strategy. If you ever battle me, just remember that. xD

Out of all the Eeveelutions which is your favourite and why?

OHMAIGOD. I love all of them!!! So much! But, I guess here's the order:

1. Leafeon
2. Jolteon
3. Espeon
4. Umbreon
5. Flareon
6. Glaceon
7. Vaporeon

Not counting Eevee. She would be last anyway. I don't like her a lot. =/

I love Leafeon because I really think that there need to be more strong grass types like her. Roserade and Leafeon are my favorite grass types. Jolteon is close behind because I've recently started using one permanently on my FireRed team and I absolutely love her! Yes, most of my Eeveelutions are females. Espeon and Umbreon are just simply adorable. Flareon is cute and fluffy and warm. :3 Glaceon is okay, I guess, but by far my favorite. And it's funny because Vaporeon used to be my favorite Eeveelution, but now I just don't like him much anymore for some reason.

I could go on and on about these Pok&#233;s, I just love them so much! ^^;

Out of all the starters that Ash has caught in the anime, which do you think is stronger and which has the most personality?

Don't watch the anime anymore; wouldn't know. =/

Well, I've blabbed on long enough. I hope you forgive me for not coming here in a while. And happy 2009! :x

I think I'll answer a few "old" topics...

Do you think Monferno and Infernape are just like a remake of Combusken and Blaziken?
In many ways yes. I was very disappointed after learning that the new Fire-type starter line was Fire/Fighting just like in the 3rd gen... They do have a few distinct "features" that can affect what happens in a competitive battles, but other than that (I haven't seen them in the anime), there's not that much of a distinction in my opinion. =/

Normally when you pick for starters, do you go by element, looks, or etc?
I go by Water and Water only. =P

Out of all the regions, which has the best starters all together?
Definitely the Kanto region. Though they may not be the "strongest" set of starters out there, they're still the most classic.

Mela
15th January 2009, 8:33 AM
Hehe I like your answers XDXD Although the Chimchar line are pretty cool, nothing will EVER EVER EVER beat the Torchic line, although its just awesome cause of Blaziken's flaming awesomeness XDXD Although I like the Chikorita line as a whole, as in I like all of the stages of Chikorita, wheras I'm not a massive fan of Combusken and there are cuter staters than Torchic, but Blaziken blows that all away XD

latios reborn
15th January 2009, 10:42 AM
Not sure if answered these but anyway..

Normally when you pick for starters, do you go by element, looks, or etc?

I'd have to say looks.. I do like water Pokemon but in Johto instead of Totodile I chose Chikorita, Hoenn I chose Torchic instead of Mudkip. I didn't really like the looks of the water types. In Sinnoh I chose Piplup.

Out of all the regions, which has the best starters all together?

Not sure really.. Each region has good starters and not so good ones.

Mr. Joker, welcome to the SPC :) It's cool that you got a shiny Starter way back when.

BM is back! :D

I'm glad to see this club a bit more active lately xP Maybe some Co-Owners and Contests are due to happen soon.... *wink wink ;)* xDD

Out of all the starters that Ash has caught in the anime, which do you think is stronger and which has the most personality?
Charizard is definately very strong, having been with Ash for so long. Sceptile and Pikachu (I guess this can count as a Starter for him *shot*) are also incredibly strong too. Bulbasaur has great personality IMO, but Turtwig lacks some personality due to the fact that it's personality was copied from the aforementioned (did I use that word right?).

Do you think Monferno and Infernape are just like a remake of Combusken and Blaziken?
Yup yup. I like the Combusken/Blaziken idea better, mostly because there was already a fighting monkey/ape duo evolution line (Mankey and Primeape). Although, I do really like Chimchar and its evos a bit mroe than Torchic and its evolutions. I don't really know why exactly, but I just do - that justifies my answer, right? :D

Mr. Joker
16th January 2009, 1:49 AM
Out of all the starters that Ash has caught in the anime, which do you think is stronger and which has the most personality? I think that Charizard is the strongest, although he didn't respect him that much in the begining, he has grown to be a good pokemon. I think that Chimchar will take that place once it evolves. I think that Chimchar has the most personalty becouse it had a abuseove past.
Do you think Monferno and Infernape are just like a remake of Combusken and Blaziken?
Yes. I do. I would think diffrently if they were Fire/dark though. I was the most dissapointed with Chimchar line more then the other lines.

Thank you for letting me in!

Welcome to the club, Mr. Joker! ^_^

Which Starters (in particular) do you think should have stat changes/boosts? ...... (What are you all looking at? Sure I made a similar topic in another club, but who cares? =P)
1. Charizard: Needs more Sp.Atk to overpower Infernape in that area.
2. Blastoise: He definitely could use a bit more Sp.Atk and Sp.Def to help him stand out. =/ (not that I don't like him the way he already is)
3. Meganium: More HP, Def, and/or Sp.Def could turn him into one of the more "bulkier" Starters.
4. Sceptile: Not that he doesn't already have decent Atk, but a little more couldn't hurt.
5. Blaziken: Needs more Atk, Sp.Atk, and/or Spd so that he wouldn't be too overshadowed by Infernape.


I'm glad to see this club a bit more active lately xP
Good, now we're just gonna have to keep it that way! =P

Walcott
17th January 2009, 4:44 AM
Not sure if I answered this one.....

Which Starters (in particular) do you think should have stat changes/boosts?
Hmm...I think Torterra and Venusaur both need a bit more Speed - I know they aren't supposed to have very much, but they need some Speed. I'm not really sure what the difference between Special Attack/Defense is, so I wont say anything about that....and, um, well....I agree that some Pokémon could use a little more HP and Attack, just to make them somewhat better in Gym Battles and such ^^;

Don't have much else to say..... :&

Hehe yeahh the club has gotten a lot more active in the past few days XDXD

Which Starters (in particular) do you think should have stat changes/boosts?
Umm let's see I'm not sure what the stats are exactly but I'll just say what I think should be.

Charizard: High Special Attack, Low Defense
Venusaur: High Defencse, Low Speeed
Blastoise: High HP, Low Attack

Typlosion: High Special Attack, Low Defense
Meganium: High Defense, Low Speed
Feraligatr: High Attack, Low Speed

Blaziken: HIGH EVERYTHING XDXD Jkjks High Attack, Low Defense
Sceptile: High Speed, Low Defense
Swapert: High Defense, Low Attack

Infernape: High Speed, Low Special Attack
Torterra: High Defense, Low Speed
Empoleom: High Special Defense, Low Speed



I'm not really sure what the difference between Special Attack/Defense is.
Special Attack/Defense is the same in the sense of Attack/Defense only this concerns attacks in the Special category, their fairly easy to categorise, Special: Water Gun, Physical: Tackle etc. Special attacks normally don't involve the body and are range attacks mostly and so if you're a Blaziken with a high Special attack with low attack, your Flamethrowers are more effective than your Fire Punches etc.

Hope I explained it well enough :/

Oh my gosh, you guys. Ya'll post too fast! Or I post too little. Whichever one it is... @_@

Welcome to the club, whoever has joined!! ^^;

Do you think Monferno and Infernape are just like a remake of Combusken and Blaziken?

TOTALLLLLLLLLLY. I like a fiery chicken better than a fiery monkey. =P If the Chimchar line was also Dark type, like Mr. Joker said, it would be so awesome. I'm also disappointed in Houndour/Houndoom. They're Fire/Dark, but it's hardly evident.

Which Starters (in particular) do you think should have stat changes/boosts?

All of them should have higher everything. :p I have no idea what you're talking about since I pay no attention to stats. I don't think that any Pok&#233;mon should change, though, because they are all perfect how they are. /Pok&#233;mon addict.

Erm...yeah. :D

Hmm let's try for a new topic.

Which starters surprised you by being better or worse than you expected, this can be looks, move, stats, anime etc.
I was impressed by Squirtle, because the very first time I saw Squirtle I thought that it had weak defense and attack and average speed, but then when I watched the anime, and listened to people's opinions on Squirtle I changed my mind, not to mention its so adorable in the anime XD

Chimchar and Turtwig surprised me a lot, mostly because I didn't really like them. As I used Chimchar throughout Diamond I grew to like it and it's one of my favorites now :D Same goes for Turtwig. The Hoenn Starters surprised me as well - Torchic was okay, I though it would be better, and the other two are great as well.

New topicz cause I can c:

Top ten starters(all evos)?
1. Bulbasaur
2. Venusaur
3. Torterra
4. Grovyle
5. Quilava
6. Mudkip
7. Wartortle

Aaah this is gonna be so hard, I'm gonna do this on how I see them. not on stats, anime etc.

1. Blaziken; This has GOT to be the best Pokemon ever XDXD
2. Charizard; Eh it can fly xD
3. Chikorita; It is really really cute XD
4. Bulbasaur; Yes yes it is a cutie and really strong too.
5. Meganium; It is the most prettiest starter XD
6. Totodile; Purely because of its role in the anime LOL
7. Mudkip; It's really really cute and yeah XD
8. Turtwig; Probably the most sturdiest out of the Sinnoh starters.
9. Cyndaquil; It is so cute, and cause of the anime I think it was the strongest out of Ash's Johto starters.
10. Bayleef; Yes yes let's complete it with the entire Chikorita line XD

Hmm ... it seems that apart from Bayleef I didn't put any 2nd stage Pokemon in, this is cause the 1st stage have their role as the cute ones, and the 3rd stage Pokemon need to be strong, epic and cool XD The 2nd stage Pokemon kinda merge the 1st and 3rd stage Pokemon together getcha XD

I think that the Kanto shinies are too plain.
The Johtos ... yeah I don't really like the Johto shinies

Like I've said before, I haven't seen much of the anime... But from what I have seen, I guess I'm most like Totodile. I'm generally jolly (except when it comes to morals and Christianity - I don't tolerate things that go against my faith), friendly, and like to be mischevous. I do get a little angry and stubborn at times, but I try not to let too many things get to me. I like to hang out with my friends and I always try to include everyone in on things.

Hehe in the anime Chikorita is not calm and quiet, its passionate, aggressive and competitive. If you're calm and quiet then I'd say you're more like a Cyndaquil or a Bulbasaur maybe even Turtwig.

I would say that I am close to being Treecko - I like to be alone a lot and I'm kind of conservative, although I do have a lot of friends. When I am really excited about something, I'm guess I'd say that I am like Torchic, because I get super hyper and don;t really care what's going on :D Whee~

I have WiFi, and know how to use it, but I don;t think I have the time to help you LR. Sorry :\

And Mela, you need to have a wireless internet connection. And you also have to set it all up through your DS (the WiFi part, not the actualy internet connection obviously). It was confusing, but is you still have the little booklet that came with your game, it should tell you what to do in there. :)

Yeah, I want it to, but it doesn't come out for another month where I live :\

Grass: Let's see dinosaur, lizard and turtles are taken ... bugs are outta the question ... unless a Bug/Grass! But then double damage from fire ... I;d choose a ...dog! Or a fox kinda grass Pokemon .. are there any out there atm?

Fire: Hmm Dinosaur, Chicken, Mole (Is that what Cyndaquil is?) and Monkey, maybe a Fire Bird xD I love Fire and Flying Pokemon and since the only one is Moltres ... yeah ^^"

Water: Crocodile, Turtle, Penguin, ... a Mudkip hmm ..how abouts a WAter Cat?! LOL

If you could design a Starter Pokemon Lv.X for the Pokemon TCG, which would it be and what attacks, etc. would it have?

Name: Blastoise Lv.X (naturally)
Type: Water
HP: 160
Poke-Body: Hydro Reject - "Whenever your opponent's Active Pokemon retreats, discard all Energy attached to the new Active Pokemon."
Attack: (W W C) Heavy Rain - "You may choose any number of basic Energy cards attached your Pokemon and put them back on top of your deck in any order. If you do, choose 1 of your opponent's Pokemon for each Energy card returned in this way (You may choose a Pokemon more than once.) and this attack does 20 damage to that Pokemon. (Don't apply weakness and resistance for Benched Pokemon.)"
Weakness: Electricity x2
Resistance: None
Retreat Cost: (C C C)

In the future gen (5th Gen) and you were in charge, what animal would you base the starters on?

Grass: A gazelle from Africa. It would be really fast and its last evo could be Grass/Fire-type. (just to mix thing up a bit XD)
Fire: A frilled-neck lizard from Australia. It would have high offensive stats and its final evo could be Fire/Poison-type
Water: A water spider from...wherever! XD It would have good Sp.Attack and decent Speed and its whole evo line would be Water/Bug-type.

Oh wow. I love those ideas. The lion cub one sounds like it would be a starter that's nice and cute at first, but evolves into a stronger form that looks amazing compared to the rest. And the peacock one would be very interesting - maybe start out as a chick and then become large and extravagant? The duckling one does sound cool, but I think we need a water type that is also a ghost type. Ya know - one that is water/a type that wouldn't really be with water.

Well, I don't know about the contests... I mean, can't do banners because my sister won't let me use her photoshop program. Also, I've only ever done one fic...and, well, it sucked something terrible... >_> (fics just aren't my thing...)
So yeah, I don't think I'll be able to participate in either of them...

Well maybe if you can't aprticipate, maybe you can act as judge or something? Thsi contest should include everyone, even those who don't write or photoshop.

Contest for the win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:D

Sorry, I'm in a hurry, but a contest with both a banner and fanfic would be awesome. Maybe you could choose a winner in both categories. Any prizes for winning? ^^; (psst, automatic rank-up...).

Hmm...seeing the responses to the idea of a contest, I guess I'll go ahead with it :D It will be a Creativity Contest and both banners and Fan Fics can be entered. Anyone can enter a banner or Fan Fic or even both if they really want to. Anyone who doesn't feel that they can write well enough or don't have any good photoshop thingies can judge if they want. I won't make the deadline soon, probably sometime in April or maybe even May, this way the Fic people have enough time.

I'll post more in-depth rules sometime by the weekend so that everyone knows what to do. If anyone knows they will be a judge than please say so :D This is exciting.

Sorry if I don't post often - I just told the girl I like (who is also one of my good friends since seventh grade) that I like her and she told me she liked me back. So we are officially going out now and I am pretty sure that will take a part of my free time away xD

CONGRADS BA XDXD Good on ya, its really hard to confess to the person you like =3

About the contest .... I have a few questions before I decide, will we have a theme? Like not just 'Starter Pokemon' but more specific? And how long will a fanfic need to be, same goes for a banner.

Hey, that's a good idea! And since BA's made it official, I guess I'll probably be judging this contest. I won't be locking myself into judging the contest yet though, because there is a slight chance that I could convince my sister to let me try out her photoshop program. Don't worry; I won't wait too long to make my final decision.

YES. Contest! I don't have a photoshop thingy besides Paint, so I dunno if I'll make a banner yet (MAYBE), but definitely count me in for FanFic-ing! Hopefully this contest will get me to write again, finally, after, like, at least a year. ><;;

Mkay everyone, the contest will definately be a Creativity Contest; make a banner, fan fic, current Pok&#233;mon evo (does not have to be starters), or create your own starter/starter evo line. I'll make up the rules this weekend seeing as I have a half day Friday and no school at all on Monday. Don't worry, the contest will not end until around April or maybe even May, just to give everyone enough time. even people who join in the upcoming months :D

The contest will be based on a point system, and deffierent categories start at different point amounts (i. e. Fan Fics will start with something like fifty points and a banner would start with thiry because of Fan Fics requiring more thinking, planning, and other things. Each category will have different ways of obtaining points and everything as well.)

And this isn't only for HK, but for everyone: even if you're a judge you can still enter something. I'd like to have three judges, this way each entry will be judged by two of the judges and if any of those judges submits something than the other two will look at it. I will be a judge unless a lot of people actually want to xP I really want to judge and see every entry even though they'll all get posted at the end ^^

Hmm I've given this some thought and I would like to be a judge ^^
So yeah fanfics aren't really my thing and well I'm not sure if I'll get my Photoshop ready by then, however if I do I'll make a banner or something.

EDIT: Ok I just got my Photoshop back, I'll still want to be a judge and once all the details are finalised then I'll mkae a banner for the contest ^^

EDIT2: Hey I'm making a banner and I was wondering if you guys knew any other sites apart form Bulbapedia with images of Pokemon? Large sized images preferably like the Artbook ones.

EDIT3: LOL Whoops well I made my PASBL Banner *looks down* It took awhile consdiering it was a rough job, I kept deleting my brushes, I got so angry but yeah if I really wanted to make it sparkle it would be better, like better textures and stuff but this banner will be constantly changing so yeah ^^

Hey!

I really want to be a judge. I have never judged anything before, but I always judge fanfiction, lol. Unless you want to judge. In that case, I leave it all up to you, Mela, and Mr. Co-Owner HydroKing. :p

And I still am going to enter a fanfic and* a banner for this contest. I'm so excited!

If there are lots of people who want to be a judge, then I won't mind stepping down, and I still want to make a banner for the Contest. So I just need to confirm some things.

Title: Starter Pokemon Club's 1st Contest (Not Official, if you (anyone) wanna change it then just say so, I'm not creative with names ^^"
Theme: Starter Pokemon
Categories: Fanfics & Banners
Judges: (Not confirmed yet, when they're confirmed their names will be on it).
Images: This is for anyone, do we want region starters? 3rd Stage Starters?

Just comment on this.

Mela, I don't want to sound rude, but please don't post things like that. Since you are not a Co-Owner or anything, you wouldn't be allowed :\ I won't give you a warning or anything since you are a great member, just want to let you know not to do that :)

But anyway, I'll post the rules and stuff ^^;

Oh, sorry about that! ^_^; I'm sure BA just forgot to accept you is all. (I know he wouldn't do something like this on purpose) Anyways, welcome to the club! =) *looks at location* You're from Autralia too? (I was born there) That's pretty cool! My family has been on a trip to America for quite some time now, but we'll be heading back to Australia in less than a month.

*reads contest details* Looks like a good idea, BA! The only thing I don't understand is the ability to choose what to enter into the contest. (and even being able entering multiple things in) Won't it make the contest a bit unfair for people who don't have photoshop or whatever? (please correct me if I'm wrong)
Also, I may/may not need to be a judge after all. (even though I could always design a 5th gen starter I suppose...) My sister might let me use her photoshop program, so yeah... ^_^

So, if it's more than thirty pages, will people get extra points? (Not that I'll likely have a story more than thirty pages, I'm just asking...)

And, is there any specific thing these one-shots will be judged on? Like, storyline, theme, characters, etc.?

Hm, this does seem like a concern. It would be unfair. If I entered a One-Shot and a banner, my points could be up to 85 (with the creative nickname), but if someone entered only an original starter line, it would be up to 50. But, I guess you also have to keep in mind that the people who are doing more work (submitting more of the things) will be getting more points...

Also, MS Paint works pretty well in banner-making. =) Photoshop is not the only option.


-Types cannot go beyond understandable terms (i.e. no water/grass, fire/grass)

There is already a Water/Grass type line and that would be Lotad and evos. ;)

sorry for inactivity in this club :[
thanks for the comments on the animal based starter pokemon guys ;)

Hey, you have a really good imagination. I think you should submit those ideas to Nintendo and Satoshi Tajiri himself! No lie...


and for the contest i am absolutaly terrible at art in photoshop and things like that and ive never written a full fan fic, ive tried but it was really bad : ( so unless all the judge positions have been filled i guess i could be a judge.

Taking an image, putting it on MS Paint, and making changes to it is an equally effective way to make a banner. *cough, I've done it before, cough*

It doesn't have to be a full fanfic. It's a one-shot, meaning: short. I suggest you try anyway. What's the worst that can happen? We won't kick you out of the club. ;)

Just trying to help.

@everyone, mostly BA: My questions still stand. =/

Nononono the points are not combined xP I guess I'm not so good at making thing clear. People can enter multiple categories but the points they earn for each are separate :)

And, is there any specific thing these one-shots will be judged on? Like, storyline, theme, characters, etc.?

No, no extra points if it goes over thiry pags :\ I meant that it's flexible and I will accept an entry if it's thirty-one pages or something. I don't think this will be a problem because I don't see many people going over thirty. Anyways, One-Shots will earn points for better plots; I don't know if that's very understandable, but it's easy to tell when a OS has a better plot :p


There is already a Water/Grass type line and that would be Lotad and evos.

Haha I meant starter-wise - the starters never have those kinds of types, so neither can the ones for the contest ;)

And weclome afl21194, sorry I forgot to accept you. I'll add you to the memebr list tomorrow :)

Hi everyone! my names drifl00n but you may call me nina, but whatever works is fine ^_^. my favorite starter has to be piplup, just because he looks cute doesnt mean he isnt strong. Plus he can put up a fight. Im new to serebii forums in general, and i figured this would be a great place to start off and meet new people. Sorry i sound like a big n00b on here :(
