    I got the Brave Bird Taillow with the DexNav, purely by accident and it was level 18.

    Gamefreak seems to be making things easier and easier to aquire. With the new DexNav, Pokemon can be easily caught for Egg Moves. Whatever happened to Egg mives coming from Eggs?

    Well, it does make it simpler to get good moves and fast. I guess its not totally a bad thing..

    It's not just Pokémon.

    RuneScape a game I play has also gotten easier over time.
    I'm a huge Pokémon fan and also love movies.

    And yea, I agree. The Grand Exchange is what made that easier.

    It seems newer games are just easier in general.

    Anyway, I really dislike Ralts' evolutionary line right now. They level up way too slowly compared to my other Pokemon in Alpha Sapphire and my OCD when it comes to my team being leveled properly isn't helping matters.

    Ralts was always hard to level up. Try getting one from a trade to make it easier to train? I trained a Ralts myself on my team.

    There is a reason Ralts evolves so slowly, because Gardevior really is a great Pokémon compared to something like Linoone or Mightyena.

    I find it incredibly bizzare that several of the Gen V moves didn't gain any notable distributions in Gen VI, like Hex, Heavy Slam and Inferno, while others like Incinerate, Struggle Bug and Horn Leech were given notable boosts from both learnsets and power.

    I guess they will reconsider these if we get the next Kalos games, just like how they redistributed some of the Gen III Tutors and moves in HG/SS. Either that, or they will have to distribute these in Gen VII to the new Pokémon.

    I also don't understand why those move have so little distribution in VI

    So I was thinking about having a thread to discuss how to avoid obsolescence in the future generations while keeping the number of Pokémon high, since people were discussing about the lack of new Gen VI Pokémon, even though there were previous complaints about the repetitive nature of Gen V. And in neither argument people discussed the constantly declining former OU Pokémon.

    So should I go ahead and do it, should just post it as a post to the Lack of Kalos Pokémon thread?

    This is just me, but Ralts' evo line seems pretty easy. Having a base 125 in an offensive stat is pretty high for a level 30 Pokemon.

    The only difficult part I found about Ralts' evo line was that she wouldn't get any other STAB move until the late 40's. Of course, that is if you don't Pokebank her to your second game and TM in Psychic/DGleam.

    That's true. This is partly because the first few games in a franchise will just lay down the foundation, introduce the fundamentals, etc. As more games are made, developers have more time to sit back and ask themselves "all right, so we've introduced egg moves, hidden abilities, etc etc. How do we build upon this? How do we change or improve these mechanics? How do we give the players more options?"

    One of the most common methods of making a sequel in a franchise is to give the player more choices, more options. In Pokemon's case, these sequels are now offering us more choices on how to pursue egg moves and shiny Pokemon with the Dexnav. Veterans who have spent years SRing, chain breeding, and countlessly encountering wild Pokemon, might see these new options as easier, while newcomers to the franchise might look back at older games and say "What?! I would've had to breed down 6 different chains just for one move? That's way too convoluted." It's all perspective.

    There is apparently a tier below PU now, FU.

    Oh my Arceus. It even contains most of favorite Pokémon from B/W NU.

    I cannot believe Marowak is PU material, wow has it fallen from grace! And Tauros! There's a very large list of Pokémon that I'd never believed would be so low on the viability list, but Smogon Tiers don't lie. If it's in the depths even for NU, it's got to be PU material.

    Does anybody remember the days when Blissey, Snorlax, Starmie, Zapdos, and Marowak were standard on EVERY GS team in existence?!

    Speaking of PU material, Serperior is now Contrary material. So I doubt the tiers reflect this new development. 130 base power Nasty Plot, Leafeon is rolling in it's NU grave.

    Still haven't picked up ORAS (will soon!) but I typically enjoy battling the most in Pokemon and especially in Y. I try to find battles with random passerby's and typically have my team in OU format to be somewhat fair. It's pretty rare to find a good battle let alone A BATTLE that way though. Oftentimes I'm against teams that are just pathetic or people using 5 Uber pokemon. The last battle I had , the person spammed Dark Void with Darkrai and when my 4th mon went to sleep I gave up in frustration. Just thought I'd talk about my recent experience.
