View Full Version : The Standalone Pokemon Club v.2

31st July 2009, 3:46 PM
This is the second version of the Standalone Pokemon Club, orginally made by Pearl's Perap. The old club has died so I decided to bring it back. Below is what the original club owner said. The member list has been WIPED, so if you were in the previous club you'll have to re-join. I will update the member list each time new members are added. New club approved by Chelc.

Since in the rules it strictly states that you can't make a club based on one pokémon and some pokémon don't actually have an evolutionary line, I came up with the simple idea of a club that includes ALL these pokémon with no evolutions.

And so I present, THE STANDALONE POKÉMON CLUB!

Are you a fan of Kangaskhan? Qwilfish? Tropius? Chatot? If so, then this club is for the club for you. Simply state which standalone pokémon you like and why you like it using the form below.

Usual club rules apply, but here's a quick rundown:

1 - the usual forum rules (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=148029) apply like normal.

2 - No one-liners, they will either be ignored or reported.

3 - Don't overuse smilies, one per post is more than necessary (aside from the members list ;])

Form

Example Topics

Which standalone pokémon do you think will have pre-evolutions or evolutions in the fifth generation?
What is your favourite picture of your favourite standalone pokémon?
Out of all the standalone Pokemon, who do you think would win a fight between all of them?
Do you have any level 100 standalone pokémon?
What would be the perfect episode/manga chapter starring your favourite standalone pokémon?
Is there a Pokemon out there that should be a standalone but was given an evo/pre evo with it when it was released?
Were there any pokemon that WERE standalone, but got an evolution or pre-evolution that you think shouldn't have gotten one?

---

Incase you can't remember if you love a certain standalone pokémon, here's a list:

1st Gen - Farfetch'd, Kangaskhan, Pinsir, Tauros, Lapras, Ditto, Aerodactyl

2nd Gen - Unown, Girafarig, Dunsparce, Qwilfish, Shuckle, Heracross, Corsola, Delibird, Skarmory, Stantler, Smeargle, Miltank

3rd Gen - Shedinja*, Sableye, Mawile, Plusle, Minun, Volbeat, Illumise, Torkoal, Spinda, Zangoose, Seviper, Lunatone, Solrock, Castform, Kecleon, Tropius, Absol, Relicanth, Luvdisc

4th Gen - Pachirisu, Chatot, Spiritomb, Carnivine, Rotom

* Despite Shedinja requiring the evolution of a Nincada to come about, it does not evolve into or from another pokémon, making it a standalone pokémon in its own right

I'm here :D

Name you want to go by: Sapphire
Favorite standalone Pokemon (name and national dex number): Tauros #128 ;128;
Reason why: Well, Tauros has helped me in my Leafgreen game so many times that he eventually grew onto me. And I just like him (if that could count as a reason >.>)
Favourite episodes featuring this pokemon: Well, I don't really watch the anime anymore, but I remember an episode where Ash used Tauros against Anabel. Ironically, he used Tauros against her Alakazam, and I use my best Tauros (in LeafGreen) mainly against Alakazams...

Yeah, Firefox doesn't let me copy/paste D:

Wahoo, first member! I'll add you to the member list straight away =)
I think Tauros is a pretty cool-looking Pokemon, though I've never actually used one. I've only caught them on my Red a few times, and that was years ago, and only because it was rare.
Anyway, might as well answer one of the topics.

Which standalone pokémon do you think will have pre-evolutions or evolutions in the fifth generation?

I think Seviper will, I just think it'll have longer fangs, eyes that are practically just green slits, and instead of a single-bladed tail it will have the razor edge on both sides. And the pattern will be different.

YES! YES! YES! It's back! :) :) :) ^_^

Name you want to go by: Dooplissotto or just Doopliss

Favorite standalone Pokemon (name and national dex number): Seviper (#336)

Reason why: Like in the old club, because it was Jessie's main Pokemon for quite a while before Yanmega came, and has been with her since the start of Hoenn way back when. The poor snake just keeps coming back after every Thunderbolt. :)

Favourite episodes featuring this pokemon: A Tail with A Twist. Seviper's debut episode, where it was actually quite strong. I enjoyed the antics that Team Rocket, especially Jessie went through to get it, resulting in that Jessie vs. Seviper "battle". Her hair grew back very fast. ;)

You're all in! I'll add you guys to the member list in a sec. Smeargle can't sketch Chattter? I thought it could Sketch any move.

I like Sableye, but it looks weird when it displays its mouth, it just seems so....dispraportionate? I don't think I spelled that right.

It's always good to have you here, Dooplissotto :) I remember that episode, it was funny how Seviper became weak after Jessie had caught it then before she had caught it. And I'll let you slip through rule number three this time, since you're just using the form, but remember to not use too many smilies.

Great, thanks starliteevee. ^_^ Guess I got a bit carried away with the smilies, ehehe. I'll remember for next time.

Do you have any level 100 standalone pokémon?

Yes, a Sableye, Chatot and a Seviper. At the moment I'm also trying to raise a Lapras to Lvl 100, the Battleground in Platinum's helping with that. Seviper and Sableye were EV-trained, but Chatot wasn't.

Thanks for letting me join.

Which standalone pokémon do you think will have pre-evolutions or evolutions in the fifth generation?
I have always wanted a Kanghaskan pre-evo, but aside from that one the pre-evo and polar opposite of absol idea would be good too.

Do you have any level 100 standalone pokémon?
Only the Ditto that has never left the day care since the day I put it there.

At first I didn't like Tauros, mainly because I would always have trouble catching one. But in LeafGreen, it was like it wanted me to catch it... I saw one and I almost got it before it ran away, and two battles later I saw another one... and got it on the second try. I wasn't expecting to catch it, so I decided I'd try using the pokemon on my team for once... yeah.


Which standalone pokémon do you think will have pre-evolutions or evolutions in the fifth generation?

Pre-evolutions: Miltank/Tauros. Like I said in the old club, they can do a pre-evo that (depending on it's gender) will evolve either into Miltank or Tauros. Absol is the main one I can see getting an evolution, since it's popular.

Do you have any lv. 100 standalone Pokemon?
I have an Absol, Skarmory and Aerodactyl... I'm currently working on another Absol (in Platinum), and that Tauros I was talking about in LeafGreen.

2nd August 2009, 5:33 PM
Do you have any lv. 100 standalone Pokemon?
No. Actually, I don't have any lv. 100 Pokemon at all. Though I would like to try and get a Lapras, that'd be nice.

I hatched a Chatot egg on GPX+. I only just realized how weird its design is. Its head is a music note, yet it doesn't sing. And Shuckle looks like some sortof rocky snail that climbed out of a moldy wall.

There ought to be more episodes with Standalone Pokemon, because I don't think there has been enough the Pokemon, including Lapras (other than Ash's in the Orange Islands). Jesse's Seviper has had its fair share of time though. I like that snake, though it keeps on getting hit by Pikachu's Thunderboltand is always horribly defeated.

Lapras should get a pre-evolution that should have something to do with shellos.

http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu320/Flurried/GPXFanClubSectionWelcome-1.png
Do you own eggs or Pokemon on Global Pokedex Plus? (http://gpxplus.net/) Are you looking for a place to talk about it on these forums? Are you trying to find people to click your eggs? Well you have come to the right place. Here, you can talk about the rare eggs you've found, the cool Pokemon you have, the events that are coming up, and ANYTHING else about GPX. Here, your party link will be posted on the members list, or the master list, and can be clicked by other members. Please read all of the rules before joining (it doesn't take that long), and follow the joining application. Hope you enjoy the club!


http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu320/Flurried/GPXFanClubSectionTheRules-1.png

1. In order to stay active, a member must frequently post on the forums, frequently click the master list, and must frequently edit his or her journal. Frequently means at least once a week.
2. A member must always click the WHOLE party of another member when clicking their Pokemon. The only exception to this is if the user has eggs that need to be hatched.
3. All vacations, extended absences, etc. must be announced on the forum to avoid other members becoming upset that another member is not clicking back. RULE CHANGED: Report all upcoming absences or returns to me via private message.
4. Always click back a member of the club, unless you are unable to for some reason (Rule 3).
5. Do not ask to be Co Owner.
6. Follow the Serebii Forum rules.
7. Do not ask to start a GPX Egg Pokedex for the club or a blacklist of all one-clickers. Both of these ideas have been stated before and have been disapproved for various reasons, but mainly because they go against the GPX Plus rules.
8. No begging for clicks! This counts as spam!
9. NO ONE LINE POSTS. Unless it contributes something to the conversation that is important and interesting.
10. Have fun. :]

Banning/Strike System: When a user becomes inactive, their "Member" status will change to say "Inactive Once," when a user becomes inactive again, their status will change to say "Inactive Twice" and so on. When a user breaks a rule other than the inactivity rule (rule one), they will get a strike put next to their name (x). When a user gains a total of three inactivities, three strikes, or a combination of the two, they will be permanently banned. Here are some examples:

Joe [x-x-x] - Member - GMT 0 - Eggs BANNED
Joe - Inactive Three Times - GMT 0 - Eggs BANNED
Joe [x-x] - Inactive Once - GMT 0 - Eggs BANNED
Joe [x] - Inactive Twice - GMT 0 - Eggs BANNED

Get it? Good.

Just put something about the new club reset, BA is new owner, new egg abandoning rule. :]



None :]



http://i659.photobucket.com/albums/uu320/Flurried/GPXFanClubSectionHelpSection-1.png

Want to know how to make clicking a whole lot easier? Well, here you go:
First, you will need: Mozilla Firefox, Snap Links (Mozilla Firefox Add-on), and Tab Kit (Mozilla Firefox Add-on, OPTIONAL). Download Snap Links. Download Tab Kit. I personally like having Tab Kit because it allows me to organize all of the tabs that I have to open. It also makes it easier to close all of the tabs at once, and lock tabs that I don't want to close. Once you have the add-ons downloaded, go to GPX Plus. Snap links will allow you to drag your mouse over multiple links to open them all at once (see Preferences of Snap Links in order to open all new links in tabs), so drag your mouse over either a group of online users or a group of your friends. All of their parties will open up in the tabs. From here, I usually go through each user's party, open all of their egg's links, and close the tabs that have the user's party and journal on them. Then, just zip down the Pokemon and eggs and quickly warm them up or feed them. Using this technique I easily get twenty users done REALLY fast.

Guide to Feeding Berries:
When feeding a Pokemon, it is always best to give it the berry it will like the most. In order to find out what berry they will like, scroll down and look at their nature. Right next to the nature, it will say something along the lines of "likes sweet food" or even "happily eats anything." To feed them the right type of food, follow this chart:
Aspear Berry: Sour
Cheri Berry: Spicy
Chesto Berry: Dry
Pecha Berry: Sweet
Rawst Berry: Bitter

How to Get Legendary Pokemon:
Legendary Pokemon are often handed out during events (see below for a list of upcoming events). In order to get these event eggs, it is advised that you only keep five Pokemon in your party during events. Also, you can find a treasure chest that contains a summoning item. Once you use that summoning item, a legendary egg will appear in the lab after exactly five minutes. Anyone can snatch the egg though, so you have to be fast.

How to Find Items:
Items can be found by scanning through pages on the GPX website, either by clicking on eggs, buying items, managing your PC, etc. Once you find an item, it will automatically appear in your inventory. Buying an Item Finder in the store will help you find items more often.

BA, put something about the new egg hatching time limit, OK?

Want to know what Pokemon your egg will hatch into? Just ask!

Name you want to go by: Sl
Favourite standalone pokémon (name and national dex number): Oh thats hard. uhh....Absol 359
Reason why: it is awesome. And it is said to ve unlucky, like the number 13, and that's my lucky number :3 it can sence disasters and can use Razor Wind, what more do you want? and shiny form is AMAZINg too.
Favourite episode/s featuring this pokémon: If it counts, jirachi Wish maker. Very brief appearence, but awesome non the less. The Absolute disaster wasn't bad either.

Welcome to the club! You'll be put on the member list in a minute. Yay, I'm not on the bottom of the list anymore!

Chatot can learn sing? I always assumed its main attack was Chatter. But I guess that's just its signature move.

Out of all the standalone Pokemon, who do you think would win a fight between all of them?
Normally I'd say Aerodactyl, but Lapras can take it out with Ice Beam or Surf. And Carnivine can take out Lapras, and Torkoal can take out Carnivine, and any other Water type can take out Torkoal, so it keeps on going in a circle. But I thinkAerodactyl is strongest, with its good speed and attack.

And guys, don't be afraid to make your own topics! This club is to have fun, feel free to do what you want.

Sapphire Phoenix
4th August 2009, 7:29 PM
I'm terrible at coming up with topics D:

Out of all the standalone Pokemon, who do you think would win a fight between all of them?
Probably Aerodactyl. With it's speed and attack, it could use Rock Slide before Lapras could attack, and thus, KO'ing it (more than likely it will)... Of course, if it misses, Aerodactyl's in trouble. The only Pokemon I think Aero would have trouble against would be Skarmory because of its Steel-type. Yeah...

4th August 2009, 10:45 PM
Out of all the standalone Pokemon, who do you think would win a fight between all of them?
Ditto or Kecleon, as they can transfrm into any type, so they would just take the type a move is weak to. Say Torkoal hit ot, it would transfrom into a water type, and so on. I mean in the wild, not in game D:

Another topic....
Were there any pokmeon that WERE standalone, but got an evolution that you think shouldn't have got it?
Yes......Yamna, Mantine, Sudowudo :x they were all FINE

Let's take a lookie....
Lickitongue
Nosepass
Mantine
Aipom
Chansey (the thing is annoying enough in-game)
Wobbuffet (I like Wynaut, but it seems pointless)
And I plan on adding more when I can think of them.

And I added the pre-evolution part because not all of these Pokemon evolve (like Mantine).

Rotom. With the new formes it got in Plat, it can beat anything.

Were there any pokmeon that WERE standalone, but got an evolution or pre-evolution that you think shouldn't have got it?
The only four I dont like that got evolutions or pre-evos are:
-Lickytongue
-Nosepass
-Aipom
-and yanma

What happened to the rest of the form? If you haven't watched any anime or read any manga, then put that, but please at least fill in one of those parts first please.

Yeah, I don't like Yanmega, but I wasn't much of a fan of Yanma before. I have the biggest problem with Probopass. The thing is just so ugly!

You're in. And there's no need to be sorry, it's just a thing that happens. Maybe I should've been a little less strict about it.

Topic time!

Which standalone pok&#233;mon do you think will have pre-evolutions or evolutions in the fifth generation?

Possibly Farfetch'd. It might get an evolution. Also I think Miltank and Tauros will get a calf pre-evolution.

I've just got my shiny Mawile that I've been chaining for. :)

Were there any pokemon that WERE standalone, but got an evolution or pre-evolution that you should have gotten one?
Nosepass, Aipom, Murkrow, Yanma Wobbuffet, etc... I felt like those pokemon were alright as Standalones.

One of the Standalone Pokemon's whos pre-evolution I was okay with was Magby. It's just a cute little fire baby and I love it!!

What's your favorite picture of your favorite Standalone Pokemon?
This one:http://www.thetanooki.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/070417lapras.jpg

It's as if it's just saying: Hey what's up? And there aren't many good Lapras pictures, this was the only one I really liked.

New Topic!(I'm not good at making topics but bare with me here)
Did you at first think a Standalone Pokemon was a different type than what it really was?
I thought for a while that Dunsparce was a Ground-type, because it burrows into the ground with its tail. And that Mawile was a Dark-type, but that's mainly because it was black.

Thats a great pic of Lapras! I agree there ain't many good pics of them.
I also thought that dunsparce was ground... I also thought aerodactyl was dragon instead of a flying type XD. Back wwhen Snorlax was a standalone, I thought he was a fighting type... a really lazy one lol. I also thought Tauros was a fighting or a ground type pokemon

I thought Wynaut was okay, since I was never a huge fan of Wobbufet (except for Jessie's).

I didn't really like Chingling, it's just weird and it's about ten times the size of Chimecho's head. It is cute in a way, but I think Chimecho was better off as a Standalone.

Too bad there isn't much to talk about lately. Haven't seen the new Pokemon episode, but I'm looking forward to the next one :]

Best Standalone Pokemon I've ever had was probably a Lapras I stole from my friend... it reached a level of 45 ^_^;

2 - No one-liners, they will either be ignored or reported.

There's a warning, and quoting something doesn't prevent it from being a one-liner. I know you did it before, but I ignored it and then realized you probably wouldn't stop unless I warned you. So, please don't one-line.

I haven't ever tried using a Wobbuffet to be honest, in fact I haven't ever used a 4th generation Pokemon since I don't own a DS or a DPP copy. I'd like to try and see how I can handle Pachirisu, I've heard it's a pretty bad Pokemon, but I'd like to see what I can do with it : D

Ok sorry... I didn't mean to I was gonna add more onto it but I forgot. I'll be sure not to in the future. I'll admit I never used Pachirisu much either. I used it mostly in that park where you walk around in it and get contest items (the name escapes me...)
What I was gonna add on about Wobbuffet is that I can't figure out Destiny Bond and Counter. Whenever I used Destiny Bond, they wouldn't try and kill Wobbuffet, and when I used Counter they wouldn't attack me O.O
I have a question Starliteevee... can I request a banner for the club? I'll ask for 3 standalones in it... I'm not sure which ones yet, and thats why i was asking if it is ok with you?

It's okay about the one-liner. When you say request a banner, do you mean to make one or ask somebody to make one? Both are fine with me, I have no problem with it.
Sapphire made a banner in the original club, but I took it out since I didn't want to put it back without her permission...maybe I should've kept it.

Thanks for remining me of the park's name masterleo.

I think you should have Chatot in there, because that was the original owner's Pokemon. So it seems only right. I think I'll get a banner too.

Ok I'll be sure to put Chatot in there as well. I think I might put another pokemon in too, but I will have to look at the list of standalones agian and will decide who fits along with Lapras and Chatot.
Haha mawile... I like that picture too, its very bizarre XD
If I remember right... Chatot and Pachirisu were the only standalones I ever used in Contests... Chatot was at tops a Ultra rank Smart, and Pachirisu a Super rank Cute
EDIT: I think I'll make the third pokemon Zangoose instead of Tropius... he seems to fit in more... I'll request it once she opens back up :(

Welcome to the club, you guys! I think Heracross is okay, but I actually prefer Pinsir just because I used to have this card of him and I loved that card, so he was my favorite Pokemon at the time. Heracross is still cool though, I just wish they didn't change the female's horn in DPPt.

So yeah I'll start with that immediately
I know this topic was already used but
Do you think that a stand-alone pokemon should get an evolution in Gen 5?
I think Dunsparce, Qwilfish, and Shuckle hould get one. I'm still amazed they haven't. I also thought that when Shellos was released that it should've been Lapras' pre evo. I also feel strongly that miltank/Tauros deserve a calf evo, and that Kanghaskhan deserves a pre evo that has a male evolution too.

In answer to some of the topics:

Which Standalone Pokemon seems to be forgotten most?

I always forget about Stantler and Corsola. They just don't leave any impression on me at all. I only remembered them now after seeing them mentioned in this thread.

Do you think that a stand-alone pokemon should get an evolution in Gen 5?

The following need evolutions rather more than most.

Farfetch'd. It has never been any use to me in any of the games and it has sat, waiting patiently, through 4 generations for something that will relieve it of its horrible stats and generic movepool. But I've always liked Farfetch'd for what it is.

Qwilfish. An evolution would help this one. All it has going for it at the moment is Spikes.

As far as pre-evolutions go, I still cannot fathom how Kangaskhan can hatch with a baby in its pouch. It needs one.

What sort of new Standalone Pokemon do you think there should be in the 5th Generation?

A Swordfish. Pretty much just a normal Swordfish. It would not need any evo or pre-evo at all.

ChaRichard

Which Standalone Pokemon seems to be forgotten most?

Miltank. Whenever someone does think of miltank, it's usually to reminisce(did i spell that right? I know there's a c in there) about how awesome tauros is in lg/fr.

Do you think that a stand-alone pokemon should get an evolution in Gen 5?

All of them deserve an evo/pre-evo.

That being said, I think pinsir and heracross, as they're so similar, should hav a baby form, or a shared evo.

What sort of stand-alone pokemon would you like to see in gen. 5?
Well I've been working on my own fakedex, and here are some of my standalones init
Calhiss- A Calico cat that has kind of the same head as Glameow, except its much more catlike. It has white boots for feet and has a mostly brown body, with a black-tipped tail and black spots elsewhere on its body at random!
Duagua- A purplish colored leech, that has a head on both sides of its body. It has no eyes and just has jaws.. But it can "see" by sensing heat.

I would reveal some more but I can't think right now... my list of them is upstairs, and I'm to lazy to head up there right now

Bringing back a topic on a whim to talk lol
Were there any pokemon that WERE standalone, but got an evolution or pre-evolution that you think shouldn't have gotten one?
I think Mantine should've been left alone. I mean it was so perfect and cool, a manta ray, then, BAM! there's a baby form to it thats completely useless. I think We could've lived without it. I also thought that Wynaut, Mime Jr. and Bonsly were unnecessary. They do add in a bit more to the games though. But since Delibird is Mantine's opposite, how come Delibird didn't get a pre evo? How come Bannette didn't get an evolution to counter Dusknoir? these are the questions that haunt me...
I'm gonna see if I can find a cool pic of Qwilfish I like

I did like Magby and Elekid. Maybe it was cuz I wasn't a fan of standalone pokemon way back when O.o I was one of those "if it doesn't evolve who needs it?" Haha I was picky as a kid like that
Anyways found a pic of Qwilfish
So I herd you liek Mudkipz... (http://fc02.deviantart.com/fs30/f/2008/150/2/a/Qwilfish_Entry_by_Norcinu.jpg)

=O Oh no you din't.
Magby is INFINITE WIN. Magmar is a really cool Pokemon, but nothing would be anywhere without Magby. Don't diss my baby =<

Yeah, I was like that too Farmermon. I pretty much went by "Pokemon that don't evolve or come from an evolved form aren't good", so I absolutely adored Magby. I still like it a lot. In fact... I would prefer it much more if Magmortar wasn't made. I feel like it's an insult to Magmar. Makes him look like he swallowed a Chansey =<

Wow, Farmermon. That pic is INSTANT WIN!

*Takes a bow* Its amazing what google can find for you lol
Glad to see I'm not the onlyone who focused only on evolution back in the younger years... my how times have changed my thinking.
I've been raising a Seviper, Lunatone, and Sableye for my Sapphire team, their still a little week yet but they're finally getting better

Lickitung. Lickilicky's just...weird.

Is there a Pokemon out there that should be a standalone but was given an evo/pre evo with it when it was released?
When I first saw Claydol, I thought it would be standalone and I don't really like Baltoy at all.

I like Lickilicky... Well I guess I can't say I "like" him but I think I like him loads more than everyone else XD
I definatly agree with Claydol though, Baltoy's kinda pointless in there.
Also starliteevee, I was looking at the club list and noticed that the old club and owner where on the first page. I figured I'd let you know so you could get Buraddo Aipom to fix it.

Been too inactive lately.

Lickylicky. A more bloated version of Lickytung in my opinion. And Aipom, never really liked Ambipom in the games, though it the anime it's okay.

Bronzer. Seemed like it might be a standalone to me.

Yay, Dooplissotto! You came back! *hugs*
Okay, it's been two months, and four pages.... not all that great, but not all that bad. I think we just need more members, but meh, we'll survive :}

I just had an idea. As soon as I either a) Find my Pokemon Emerald version, or b) am going to get a new Pokemon game, I will make a team of Standalones! And I already have some stuff planned out, depending on what generation it is!

R/B/Y
Lapras (Yay!)
Tangela
Scyther (don't look at me like that, it was a Standalone then)
Ditto
Kangaskhan
Something else here I still need to think of

G/S/C
Stantler
Lapras (of course)
Smeargle
Pinsir
And two other things I need to still think of

R/S/E or Fr/Lg
Lapras (saw that coming, didn't you?)
Absol
Plusle
Minun
Seviper
Maybe Mawile

And I won't bother doing the 4th gen. since I can't get the games. BUT, if I ever find Emerald or get a new Pokemon game, I shall make one of these teams!

Farmermon
2nd October 2009, 3:31 AM
I agree there's gotta be some way to draw them in... Contests maybe... somehow.
I want to create a team too, but I haven't been playing much pokemon lately. But what I plan for a team on Platinum:
Zangoose
Qwilfish
Absol
Kecleon
Pinsir
And one more... I haven't decided yet

Sapphire Phoenix
3rd October 2009, 12:56 AM
I'll make a team for the lolz of it. If I were ever to truly make it, it'd be for Sapphire or Emerald (since most of those Pokemon are caught ingame):

Tauros (of course)
Skarmory
Tropius
Lapras
Torkoal
Seviper

Basically my favorite Standalones. I've used Lapras many times, and I've used Tauros once before (and he was awesome). Everyone else I've never used before during a game playthrough, so it'd be a challange.

starliteevee
3rd October 2009, 1:04 AM
Lapras

8D

And yay, you're back too! Tauros seems like it would be a good Pokemon in-game, with it's good speed and attack. Never used it though, but I think it'll be worth a challenge to get!

And the anime made Ash's Tauros seem strong too. I remember that I think it defeated one of Drake's (the guy from the Orange Islands) Pokemon, and I think he used it in a league battle.

And, is it just me, or is this club missing something? It just doesn't seem to have the same spark as the last one, I looked at the last one, and saw that the people liked to discuss things. I don't know...

Tauros is a brilliant pokemon, and I've always wanted to use one. Apparently he's a pain to catch though. When I tried to catch him in FR, he was caught with the very first safari ball I threw, but I guess I got lucky.

If I was to make my own team of standalones, it would be this:

Dunsparce
Qwilfish
Seviper
Mawile
Pinsir
Chatot

This wouldn't be for any specific game, they're just my favourites, and besides, I like a nice challenge.

Sapphire Phoenix
3rd October 2009, 7:23 PM
I iz back 8D

Tauros is a good Pokemon, even though it's a pain to catch. In LG, I depended on my Tauros to 1 hit KO my rival's Alakazam, since my other Pokemon couldn't do that (and Alakazam loved to use Recover). Tauros + Strength = Bye bye Alakazam

Ash's Tauros did seem powerful, but I remember it getting beat in a few episodes (like the one with Anabel)... maybe because it seemed powerful because of Fissure?

In the old club, didn't we talk alot about Platinum and non-Standalone related stuff? Maybe that's why we had more of a discussion... *shrugs*

Talking about Tauros makes me want to go shiny-hunt one >.>

I spent an hour trying to chain for a shiny tauros... never found one, and that was the last time I played Pokemon, I haven't played in almost a month now. :( And of course I suck at chaining pokemon too XD
Anyways I've been thinking about the standalones more, and might try and make them an important part of a FPC contest eventually XD

Hey, anime question involving tauros. Do you think ash only uses one tauros, or oak just gives him the first one he can find?

Rommath
4th October 2009, 2:30 PM
I think Oak probably just chooses one, perhaps the strongest looking one to send to Ash when he needs a Tauros.

And in the old club, we talked about upcoming episodes and Platinum, like Sapphire Phoenix said.

starliteevee
10th October 2009, 4:21 AM
I always thought he sent Ash a specific one, one that Ash knew better than the others.

Well, since Platinum's out in both countries, all we can do is talk abou HeartGold and SoulSilver until it comes out in each of our countries.

AND we can talk about the upcoming Team Galactic Arc (which I am PSYCHED for, been waiting for this for a LONG time)!

Hello *waves* May I join in too?

Name you want to go by: Hmm... just call me Jazzy
Favourite standalone pok&#233;mon (name and national dex number): It's a tie between Plusle and Minun, but put me down for Minun (311 ND)
Reason why: It's one of those Pokemon that's basically a Pikachu knock-off (in my eyes). It doesn't get the loving it deserves because people just want a Pikachu or they don't want one without Minun. I think it deserves a bit of attention.
Favourite episode/s featuring this pok&#233;mon:
and/or
manga chapter/s featuring this pok&#233;mon: Well, I can't really recall an episode and I don't read manga, but it was featured in the movie Destiny Deoxys, wasn't it?

Accepted, welcome to the club! I like Minun too, but it seems that it's most famous for being a Pikachu-clone to the people I know. It was so cute in Destiny Deoxys, especially when it got its head stuck in the trash can. Tht was one of it's best moments in my opinion.

I think it's adorable! Especially how the Pokedex states that they cheer each other on.

And....

Happy Halloween Everyone! And let's just have a Halloween topic since the last club would do this with Holidays too.

I'm going to go trick-or-treating as an executioner, with black robes and mask to cover my face and an axe made of tinfoil.

There's some on the first page, which I seriously need to update. I'll put some here, and add 'em.

Which standalone pok&#233;mon do you think will have pre-evolutions or evolutions in the fifth generation?
What is your favourite picture of your favourite standalone pok&#233;mon?
Out of all the standalone Pokemon, who do you think would win a fight between all of them?
Do you have any level 100 standalone pok&#233;mon?
What would be the perfect episode/manga chapter starring your favourite standalone pok&#233;mon?

Double-oh-Platypus

Umm, how about this topic?

Why do you think standalone Pokemon were made as standalones? Why weren't they made with an evolutionary line in mind?

Sapphire Phoenix

Why do you think standalone Pokemon were made as standalones? Why weren't they made with an evolutionary line in mind?
Well, the only good explanation that I have is that it makes it harder to complete the Pokedex when there's standalones. I mean, if there's an evolutionary line, you can just catch a part of that line, then breed/evolve it to get the rest of the line. If a pokemon is standalone, you actually have to search for it. OR, it's because Nintendo wanted to have version exclusives standalones, so that they can make more money (since you will need that game version to get that standalone)...

They give a standalone an evolution when they think the standalone could benefit from it, or that pokemon has become forgotten (Tangela anyone?)

Meh, that's what I think :/

That was a great explanation, and probably true ^^

I also think that they were made as standalone's maybe for variety, sort of like parents that have only one kid. It kind of mixes things up a bit and makes the Pokemon a bit more special because it's just sort of them and them only. They sort of get to shine above the rest ^^
