    Within my lifetime, I've done a lot of walking. I started my journey walking on a little path called Route 1. Little did I know that walking down that route would lead me onwards to a road that went by the name of Victory. Just west of Victory Road, I walked up an entire mountain where atop stood a silent trainer who was one of the mightiest I had ever faced. I've walked, through sandstorms, across the hard desert of Hoenn. I've walked through pelting hail, across the snow covered terrains of Sinnoh. And now as I look back on all my travels I find myself walking across the Skyarrow Bridge of Unova. It took a lot of walking through tall grass patches to get where I am today...But it was worth the walk.

    With some calculation and testing, I have proven that not only are some Pokemon EV trained for maximum speed, they also have full Speed IVs with a beneficial Nature. It is because of that reason I bred a Jolly Darmanitan with 31 Speed IVs and EV trained it to maximum. It works until they decide to bring in a Focus Sasher. Danged thing is more fragile than tissue paper (but it hits like a nuke. That's why it is my lead in both ingame and competitive).

    So then Ash's Charmander should have died in that episode with the giant Pokemon on the island? They were all in the minecart, and landed in the water. :c

    Draydren is annoying, his altaria keeps spamming roost to pp stall me. Then it used perish song. Luckily I got a crit and killed it. Also, even without sash, most pokemon in the pwt survive hits with tiny amounts of hp left, just so they eat a berry boosting a stat.. The amount of sashes is stupid. Also, they ALWAYS use torment on my banded terrakion. They should not know your items.

    Basically just like this person. Let's say I have an Alakazam up. Full EVs in Special Attack and Speed, Modest nature and 31 IVs in Speed as well, Magic Guard ability with a good old Life Orb on it.

    So in competitive battling, let's say I come up against a Terrakion (probably not allowed but I'm just using it as an example). Psychic ought to take it down, no problem. Then, WHAM, Focus Sash, and Terrakion proceeds to Stone Edge or X-Scissor my Alakazam to a OHKO. ~~._.~~

    That's why game masters in tabletop games should never participate in the games they moderate. Especially since the temptation to abuse Rule 0 (Interpretation of rules is dependent on the game master) is very high.

    Terrakion is allowed in competitive battling, but it rarely runs Focus Sash (to my knowledge).

    I'm a tcg player for pokemon, the thing that grinds my gears is when some people make invalid assumption's based off of tournaments or the stats of the card by saying, oh it's only good against this or that matchup, without even regarding the persons interest for playing that deck or skill level behind playing the deck. It's as if they have no confidence in themselves and have to make a good meta call based on pretense, so how can you go into a tournament based off of pretense when so many strong players play with what we have to the best of our ability's? It just doesn't make sense. Make you're own team, and do you're own thing, sometimes you end up making a decklist that is fairly similar to the rest but all in all isn't it better to do you're own thing, for instance a senior at worlds took someone else's list that they liked and made it they're own, he made top 8 with that deck, it's not the same as world champion (but to be honest when I was sitting there those boys in the seniors division for the finals looked old enough to play with the masters) so all in all instead of making a past meta call he played what he wanted, and it's not as if he lost to that person based off of pure type advantage, but based more off of the skill behind that player. And then this really reminds me of Karen's statement

    "Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. That is only the selfish perception of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites. I like your style. You understand what's important. Go on—the Champion is waiting."

    I like the what's important part the best, because it's all about that when it really comes down to it.

    These are mainly about the Mystery Dungeon games, so here goes:

    -Moves like Sheer Cold, Guillotine, Horn Drill, etc. being able to hit you even if you're higher in level. I played as a Lv100 Swampert and failed Silver Trench three times because of those Dewgong and their Icy Wind + Sheer Cold combos.
    -Screech spammers. Especially if it's a monster house and there are MULTIPLE Grimer/Golbat/whatever that use Screech. Even at Lv100, you start taking like 35 damage from a REGULAR attack. Physical moves do close to 100 damage sometimes because of this.
    -Traps, traps, and more traps. Grimy Traps f$%k up your food supply of eight Apples, Poison Traps force you off the level because you'd faint otherwise, etc.
    -PMD2: Pokemon like Muk and Spiritomb that use Memento (applies to Spacial Rift and Zero Isle North) and completely screw you over for that floor, especially in Zero Isle North, where the Pokemon slowly increase in level as you go further. I threw a Doom Seed at an Octillery and it dropped to Level 89. Seriously.
    and most of all,
    -Perish Song. It has a chance of affecting every single one of your team members, causing you to waste Reviver Seeds that could have been more useful in different situations. This is why I've garnered a hatred for abusers of that move like Politoed and Misdreavus.

    I do have to admit those PWT opponents are mind readers, they like know your items, your moveset, everything and they do anything they can to make me lose. Like if I have a team of fast Pokemon, they use Trick Room and crush me, and don't get me started on those stat-boosting berries they have.

    I SPECIFICALLY hate Shedinja. Oh, you can't attack me properly because I'm in a wall? TROLLOLOLOL. ._.
    Monster Houses also deserves a special mention. They are CRAZILY annoyng especially if you just arrive from another floor and you're stuck in the middle and don't have anything like Petrify Orbs. Escort Missions + Monster Houses = FAILURE

    Are you going to the same grotto? Each grotto has its own unique distribution, so its possible that the grotto you go to has a very high chance of Foongus.

    Had that exact problem with Seattle on the News Thread- apparently it's something to do with the malls.

    I check all grotto, except only the ones with foongus seem to offer something. It's only 20% chance, btw
