Mandibuzz is by far one of the best flying types in B/W. It looks very cool too, with the bone in the hair
Hoenn: Swampert (i liek mudkipz)
I'm not loving a lot of the new Unova pokemon, mostly because they evolve so late. Especially Hydreigon, impossible to use on an ingame team and expect to have a Hydreigon by the Elite Four
But yeah it's annoying, especially in B/W where taking items from a trainer's Pokemon no longer gives you the item permanently, it disappear when the battle ends.
Then again, that's so we can't take infinite Petaya Berries from Morimoto and infinite Leftovers from Cheren.....
(obviously) my favorite pokemon is Galvantula, followed by Ariados.
I feel as though certain pokemon are very overrated. namely Salamance and Garchomp. To me they are just remixes of Dragonite. My favorite dragon (and the most underrated in my opinion) is Kingdra.
I feel like in Generation 2 they did the right thing in making Tyranitar the semi-uber pokemon. a new typing should be used each generation if you ask me. However, I make an exception for Hydregion because I feel as though its design is rather original and its stats are unique in comparison to the others.
I realise I may get bitten in half for saying this, but please realise this is just MY OPINION. ~ =3
I genuinely wasn't sure if I should even justify this with a response, however I feel it may be rude not to. So here goes:
Firstly; I believe I reused, several times throughout my previous post, phrases such as "I feel..." and "In my opinion..." On top of this, not once did I mention anyone else's opinion, nor did I mention any superiority of my opinion in general, and I honestly cannot see what part of my post you pulled this from. If you can find a part that genuinely defies anything I have just mentioned; merely tell me and I will alter what I posted to make it clearer. =)
Secondly; In your opinion they are not overrated, and yes I acknowledge that people have their own opinions; which is why we are NOT "saying that people can't like "remixes" of Pokemon." No one besides the individual can decide what they can and cant like, if they do, that's called dictatorship, which is something I do not agree with.
Thirdly; Comparing the semi-ubers with the starter pokemon is not a plausible comparison to make for several reasons, first, the starter pokemon are mandatory, whereas the semi-uber pokemon are completely optional, second, the starter pokemon are the types they are because most people have a basic understanding of the cycle of superiority within water, fire and grass prior to playing any pokemon game, which is therefore relateable, and an easy way to teach beginners about type advantages, and third, the starters have remained a solid tradition and have not changed their typing ENTIRELY in any generation, whereas second generation was proof that the semi-ubers were not strictly dragon type.
Finally, although I am not a fan of people attempting to have their own interpretations of what I say, I would like to stress to you that I am NOT attempting to attack you with this post. I am purely trying to highlight the fact that what I post here are not vague poems you can interpret for yourself, or any kind of open ended text for that matter. I mean what I say, not what anyone thinks I mean.
Thank you =3
The very mention of overrated implies that lots of people (who have differing opinions to yourself) like something that they should not like as much as they do. This is because you feel they are wrong, which is, yes, your opinion. On the other hand, they may feel that Dragonite isn't very good itself, and despite your careful wording, your post implies that they are completely wrong in this regard.
It's not my opinion, they aren't overrated. If anyone likes Salamence or Garchomp (and bar competitive I'm indifferent by the way) then that's their prerogative. Again, it's your opinion that they are, but that doesn't mean I can't comment on your opinion and question it's validity.
Replace the Starter argument, with the regional bird- those aren't mandatory; whoops Staraptor isn't as good as Pidgeot!
Lol implying I have some kind of agenda against your posts! No matter what you type, there will be some kind of subtext to it for other posters such as myself to read into. Would you rather someone just read it literally, responded "yah sure ok" and carried on? Or would you rather have an interesting conversation such as this where you are thinking more about what you and the other person is saying?
Btw you are a good poster for a newbie. Keep it up, we need more new people like you
Anyway, you did completely render one of my points irrelevant, that being the point about the starters being mandatory, I do still stick by my other points though. I can see how perhaps ''overrated'' was the wrong choice of words, when I use the word "overrated" I don't mean that said pokemon are not as strong as people say they are, I mean that in my opinion this strength is too often magnified for my liking. I still believe that it is a matter of opinion to decide if said pokemon are overrated or not because its based on other peoples opinions of those pokemon, and we both would have had different experiences with those people. I'd also simply like to say I do not like dragonite, I just appreciate its status.
I don't want to offend you at all, so please don't take this as an offensive suggestion. I feel as though you are reading in between the lines too much, I base this upon the fact that you seem very set on the word 'imply.' if someone is implying something the implication itself is a matter of opinion, and it is just an assumption made on, in this case, your behalf, I just want to stress that it is not necessarily factual regardless of what is implied. I would like to make clear I do not believe you to have some agenda against my post. =)
I don't mean to say a person should just blatantly acknowledge my post and move on, what I mean is they should not try to extend on it based on assumed knowledge. I'm all for the responder opposing any/all the points I actually HAVE made, as long as their response is genuine.
I know you said you wont reply to this but you asked questions in your post, I felt compelled to answer =P. If you do change your mind and respond I look forward to it, if not well thanks for what you did respond to.
On a new note: I feel as though ice type pokemon are very under appreciated
What moves do you think whould be good for some pokemon?
I'd like Close Combat/Super Power Pidgeot or Extremespeed Zangoose.
any pure grass type with stone edge,
Rock type moves counter 4 of the 5 types super effective against grass if im correct:
Ice - Fire - Bug - Flying - Poison
obviously reds are counter by rock and green isnt
Like Breloom with stone edge rocks, i know cos i hacked my emulator file but try this out if you find a good combo
Stoutland needs earthquake. It will hit steel and rock types, while it already has crunch to handle ghost types.
Earthquake for the only 2 unova starters who don't get it would be good. Failing that, Earth Power.

Draconic pokemon are king !!!

I think that ariados should flame charge in order to take care of the steel problem, and assist with speed. =)
People only pick Cyndaquil because Wooper/Poliwag and Hoppip/Bellsprout are found so early in the game, while you don't see a Fire type till either evolving Bill's Eevee or Magmar in Burnt Tower.
