Who do you use as a surfing Pokemon?
Do you use more than one?
Discuss here.
(you can close this if you like.)

Spirit of Darkness
23rd December 2009, 1:16 PM
Yeah! I use more than one, but mainly Empoleon and Bibarel.

Esmerry
23rd December 2009, 1:28 PM
Yep, I have more then one :D
My main surfers in Diamond are Bibarel and Floatzel, and my main surfers in Platinum are Bibarel and Lapras.

swampertlover5712
23rd December 2009, 1:58 PM
^wow, you like Bibarels... :p
I mainly use Gyarados.

Calvan
23rd December 2009, 2:04 PM
My Golduck in Platinum as it's the water type i chose to raise.
In leaf green it was my Gyarados, but I had to erase it's HM moves before i could transerfer it over to Pt.

starxos8
23rd December 2009, 2:16 PM
I like to use Gyarados but occasionally I use Blastoise!

foxyman1167
23rd December 2009, 2:35 PM
Either Starmie, Vaporeon, Bibarel, Tentacruel, Floatzel, Gastrodon, Empoleon, Quagsire, Milotic, Golduck, Feraligatr, Azumarril, Blastoise, Seaking, or every other Water type I have in my PC.

TheGambit
23rd December 2009, 2:56 PM
Mine is my Blastoise.

Blue Shiny Pikachu 1
23rd December 2009, 3:16 PM
Of course my Pokemon know Surf. On Pearl I have unevolved Piplup I think and Empoleon.

AKRy100
23rd December 2009, 3:29 PM
I used to use azumarill before I beat the Elite 4, but now I use my milotic because it has good special attack and surf is actually a pretty good move.

Dragonite19
23rd December 2009, 6:35 PM
Bibarel FTW!

Swampert_trainer
23rd December 2009, 6:40 PM
My Swampert knows Surf so I don't need to bring a random Pokemon along just to get across bodies of water. I'm glad Surf is a powerful attack so it's not a waste teaching it to a powerful Pokemon.

Pokemon-Dratini
23rd December 2009, 6:43 PM
hmm

in pearl---> dont have one i just use fly, but when i first started and needed surf i used my empoleon
in my platinum game im using my mantine right now : P

Dante Falls
23rd December 2009, 6:50 PM
Never really need to Surf in DPPt, after the game's completed, apart from catching certain Pokémon.

I think it's Mew on Diamond
Bibarel on Platinum

madelyn
23rd December 2009, 9:20 PM
I used a Floatzel for surfing and going up/down waterfalls. She was the most frequently used water-type I had, and I even took her to battle the Elite 4/Champion. Now I just have a Bibarel that knows four HM's. (It's easier to have one Pokemon know lots of HM's than to have several Pokemon know different HM's).

xAngel_Of_Sorrowx
23rd December 2009, 9:30 PM
I think nearly all my water pokemon know surf since it's handy in and out of battle. But since i have Swampert with me alot then i guess he's my main surfer.

#Gecko#
24th December 2009, 1:34 AM
Its mainly Bibarel, but I use any Water Pokemon that I'm training and uses its Special for offense.

Grei
24th December 2009, 2:43 AM
My Gastrodon. Surf is such an awesome move that it doesn't need a HM slave.

Not that I'd use one. >.>

Haggahagga
25th December 2009, 11:19 AM
Currently, my main surfer is Gyarados but hopefully it will expand

Champion Shirona
26th December 2009, 8:05 AM
Mine was Empoleon/Ludicolo/Vaporeon..I like to use Ground types surfing!

swampertlover5712
30th December 2009, 12:37 AM
i enjoy surfing on many Pokemon because i love water, but that's just me.
i also am going to surf on my Swampert, and Blastoise.
for nostalgia reference.

~ Z ~
30th December 2009, 8:51 PM
To be honest, year ago every one I had in party or PC who could learn surf; learned it.
Though...Lately I've been changing surf to waterfall for someones...

Right now I don't have anyone in my team who knows surf (*sob, sob*) but when I need it I just take either Milotic or Wailord out from the PC.
Nearly anyone, really... :/

madogmonkey98
31st December 2009, 3:30 AM
my Milotic. Just incase I Need to Surf other than that i use Empoleon

^^Yoshinichi^^
31st December 2009, 3:35 AM
My Walrein. I had the awesome idea of sending over a Spheal egg on my restarted Platinum to have an original surfer for the entire game. xP

Pikachu.

That Battle Revolution Pikachu is wicked on paper but for me was absolutely horrible in practice, it did get a few revenge kills in the league though.

Gayardos
Lapras
Vaporeon
Bibaerl
& a few more (I can't do anything atm as I'm doing a trade).

Shadow_07
1st January 2010, 10:38 PM
In Diamond, I mainly use Vaporeon and Lumineon for surf, since I'm working on leveling them. It's a great battle move as well. C:

cannibaleyes
2nd January 2010, 1:42 AM
I use an Empoleon (my starter one... She's an overall HM slave) on my Diamond and a Vaporeon on my Platinum.. But I don't use Surf much.
On the other hand, my flyer, Starptor (Diamond)/Noctowl (Platinum) are nearly ALWAYS in my party. :)

Nana
2nd January 2010, 6:25 AM
I use my HM slave Bibarel. (:

5th January 2010, 12:32 AM
On Pearl I use my Aggron. A strange one to use Surf but oh well. They shouldn't had made Rock Pokemon use Surf, it is too strange.

On Platinum, I use Quagsire!!

KGB13
15th January 2010, 8:12 AM
I have a lot of pokemon that know Surf but I usually have either Swampert or Empoleon in my team, so I use them.

junpearl63
15th January 2010, 11:16 AM
Nah, only one in each team. Floatzel in Diamond, Lumineon in jap Platinum, and Empoleon in eng Platinum.

mjsmako
1st February 2010, 5:37 AM
I use Empoleon and Starmie, unless I'm training another water type then I use that one.

Vaporeon,but i have more pokemon with surf like dewgong and weavile.(which can learn surf in diamond)

Neurotic Nuckelavee
2nd February 2010, 4:15 AM
I mostly use my Lickilicky :3 I like putting surf on pokemon that aren't water types.

WynautQueen
2nd February 2010, 4:18 AM
If I'm training a water type, it's usually that. At the moment, it's "Toadorous," the Politoed I'm training. If I don't have a water type I'm training, it's usually Suicune, since I can also bring him in if I need an emergency powerhouse on my traveling and training journeys.

Nibbles4Ever
3rd February 2010, 2:37 AM
On my platinum my surfer is vaporeon.

kemal07
3rd February 2010, 2:41 AM
I use my Lickilicky since i didnt have any water type pokemon in my family of 6. Surf somehow suits Lickilicky i must say :)

Vaco
8th February 2010, 12:52 AM
I usually give Strength to something and Surf to my water-type, dump Fly + Defog on a Starly or Zubat, and put everything else on Bibarel.

On Diamond, my main 4th gen game, I use an eastern Gastrodon. On Platinum, I use my Golduck. On my Pearl, which I hardly play, I will give Surf to Piplup once I get it.

Sweet Pinpuku
9th February 2010, 6:09 PM
Same situation as Flyers, I prefer to use Pokémon that are not typically pictured as "Surfers" - ie - Linoone, Snorlax, Rhyperior. Although, in saying that, if I'm ever raising a Water type, I always teach it Surf cos I just think it's an awesome move regardless of my intent to use it outside of battle or not.

ChibiTracy
18th February 2010, 11:48 AM
I have more than one.yep
My Surfers are An Empoleon and a gastrodon :3

AllenApple
18th February 2010, 4:10 PM
I use pikachu from pBR.

Cerex
19th February 2010, 1:52 AM
I use Mantine primarily. Surf in general is a good move, but I have Pokemon that I just use for HMs; and Mantine is that for both Surf and Waterfall.

Jirachi Kidd
19th February 2010, 2:06 AM
I use my starter Blastoise that i got from my FireRed

ryodragonite
19th February 2010, 2:10 AM
I hane more than one. My first one is my empoleon since he is a water type and I always have him in my party. The other one is usually bibarel or something else I dont really use.

Sinnohdragon
23rd February 2010, 5:33 PM
Depends what my current team is. They change so frequently i'm always having to give Surf to someone new.

At the moment, its Wailord. That is, until its Lv.100 and it gets kicked out XD

Skull-Kid
23rd February 2010, 5:36 PM
Bibarel.

What a handy Pokemon it turned out to be.

GamePlaya3159
23rd February 2010, 7:18 PM
I used a Bibarel as my surfer until about 6 months ago. Then, I played though Sapphire really quick and caught Kyogre. I migrated it over, EV trained it really quick and taught it surf. I use it in and out of battle. I dont battle competitively.

Indy
23rd February 2010, 7:22 PM
My Vaporeon.

Jabbascript

If I'm doing some surfing, I'll take along my Azumarill or Wailord. I don't have a main surfer in my team all the time though.

Golduck in most of my Gen IV games. She's my SS HM Slave!

When I play in Gen V I might use Samurott as my Surfer.

In Gen III I had Golduck and Pelipper.

SoulSilverMstr411
4th August 2011, 3:25 PM
If my starter is Totodile, I always teach it surf on acount of it not learning another decent water type move (Aqua Tail) 'till Lv 43.

i normally have surf on all my water pokemon during play through but i'll eventually delete if i need to

Obviously Empoleon when i choose Piplup, otherwise Floatzel (I had a shiny one in Diamond ^^), Golduck or Seaking.

Blastoise is my surfer but when he hatched he knew it

Sucker_Punch
18th October 2011, 9:09 PM
I usually have more than one, because surf is such a great move I teach it to anyone who will learn it ^_^

My surfer's in my last Platinum game were Palkia, and Gyarados, because he was my my only one before I got Palkia, and once I did, I decided it was time to restart... meh. I used Tentacruel before that.

I found it difficult to get a surfer in Platinum though, don't know why, none of the water tyes of Sinnoh really appeal to me I suppose...

sophmeister
18th October 2011, 9:12 PM
Yeah, they are Lapras, Suicune and Empoleon!

In my current Platinum playthrough, it's Empoleon. In Diamond it was Floatzel. And that's it for me in terms of playing 4th gen, although I'm planning to start Heart Gold after Platinum.

Any water-type in my team that can learn Surf.

ricedonut
30th March 2012, 12:04 PM
Unless I don't use a Water Pokemon, or I use a Water type that does better with physical water moves such as Waterfall, I usually give surf to my water type team member.

2rsa
30th March 2012, 6:17 PM
Empolean.first i wanted to start my game with Turtwig since i don't like piplup and chimchar but i really really wanted a Leafeon in my team so i decided to go with Piplup and i have to say he is not bad.his good in battles and yet cant take me over seas.

Arlo
23rd April 2012, 2:59 AM
In all the previous gens, I never worried about Surf, since I always put it on whatever water type was on my team anyway. But with the fourth gen physical/special split, I had to start paying attention to it. In Diamond, I started with Piplup, so Empoleon was my Surfer anyway. In Pearl, I used a purely physical Gyarados as my water, so I used a Pelipper for Surfing (and for Flying too, since my team Flying type was a Vespiquen). I'm currently playing Platinum and I'm not sure what I'm going to do for Surf. I'm leaning toward using a Floatzel as my water, and it'll be physical-oriented, so Surf would be wasted on it. I might just end up putting it on a Bibarel HM slave, or another Pelipper if I don't have a team Flyer.

Aura Of Twilight

I just used Empoleon as my surfer. At least Surf is a pretty decent move.

Shinku
7th May 2012, 5:25 PM
Bibarel. I was hoping to get a Golduck to use in battles, which I would have taught surf to, but I ended up with three non-water types. So.. yeah.. HM slave it seems.

TheEliteEmpoleon
15th May 2012, 10:42 PM
Empoleon, Bibarel, or Kingdra.

Empoleon and Floatzel

Blivsey
24th June 2012, 3:33 PM
Any time that I have a water-type on my team, they have Surf. It's just too useful of a move to leave off.

Any other time, Bibarel. Bibarel with Cut/RockClimb/Strength/Waterfall and Tropius with Cut/RockSmash/Fly/Defog covers all eight TMs on two Pokémon, leaving the rest of my team open to whatever I need.

In my playthrough, it will be Empoleon and Buizel (yes, I'm not evolving it!) so as to go with more powerful water moves.

Yep. A Tentacool that's also my HM slave and nicknamed Slave. (x

I've used tons of different ones. Typically I just throw a rod into the water, and if it's not magikarp, I use it as my surf/waterfall slave.

29th August 2012, 5:19 AM
Lapras in my Pearl game, but Lugia in my Platinum. (Don't ask me why I taught my Lugia a HM move, I just did.)

Kutie Pie

Any water-type I find in my boxes.. WHENEVER there's water I have to switch out one of my team-mates.. Ugh so annoying. Next time I play through Platinum, I'm gonna have to get a REAL surfer. xD

Same with every single non-Fly HM.. .___.

i have used the same rayquaza, in all my games since sapphire. I use him for fly, surf etc. and his level100 status is a good plan b.

Empoleon. Always picked it as starter and Surf is a nice and strong STAB attack anyway for it to have. Allowing me to sail across water is just a bonus :D

Empoleon it is. I also taught him Waterfall as well because I'm lazy and can't be arsed to switch team members all the time.

Vaporeon. surf is a good move.

In Diamond my surfer was Bibarel, in Pearl it was Gyarados, and also Gyarados in Platinum. Surf packs a whallop on rock- and fire-types, so I added it as a battle move as well as transportation. The fact that on Gyarados it's a STAB move only makes it better (or worse if you're on the wrong end of it... Just ask Byron from the Canalave gym! XD)

I have quite a few Surfers. I have both a Gastrodon and a Tentacruel in my team at ALL times, so it's generally either of them... However, my Bibarel also knows Surf, so it depends.

I use ANY water type Pokémon I find in my PC Boxes, and it is usually Shellos. Or if I picked Piplup as starter, then Empoleon is my surfer.

I used Bibarel first time. Then after I restarted I used my Empoleon. Surf is a good move, anyway.

I just use Empoleon, my starter pokemon, as he is the Water-type of my team.

Well, right now, my team can't Surf, lol:

;389; ;402; ;095; ;133; ;426;

But, I plan on maybe catching Finneon as my Surfer. But in the meantime, I might trade over my Lapras/Wailord/Feraligatr from HG.

I haven't picked up my Pearl game in a long time (almost a year now), I remember that my main surfing Pokemon was Bibarel (and only HM it knew) or Floatzel, as both of them knew Surf.

I always pick Gastrodon as a surfer.

In My first run I think I used floatzel...the poor guy was un the team only for that (and maybe waterfall too)
In the second game I instead chose piplup as a starter (not chimchar) and I use empoleon.... The first time one of my starters learned an HM

While I used Piplup as my starter I used Empoleon. It's an HM move and I usually wouldn't teach one of my main's a move like that but I found that it was pretty good battle move. Other times I used Bibarel.
