    This is a really stupid question, but how long does it take to EV train someone. I've never done it before because I never really understood it until just recently. And one more thing, can you still get EVs after you get to Lv.100? Thanks ahead of time

    - It depends on how much you get at a time. Your EV training time is halved if you have Macho Brace/Pokerus. If you have both, then the traing time is quartered from the original. And you can only have 510 EVs in total, with the max of 255 per stat
    - Yes you can, but only by the 9800 priced Vitamins.

    No, you don't need skill to use legendaries. Their stats are so high that they can beat almost anything, they can learn loads of TMs, and require no skill to use to their full potential. You can't claim to be a good battler if your team is full of Mewtwos and Rayquazas.
    Exactly! I was the only one in my neiborhood to dislike using legendaries. My true team has no legendaries in them, and when i do use them it's only for the elite four in fire red and still I only did that once. Every time a link battle comes up I try to persuade friends not to use legendaries. My example of why we don't need legendaries is because my level 56 Blastoise took out a level 70 Rayquaza!

    Most likely because they're dumb

    Leaving. Possibly forever. GameFAQs is definitely a hell of a lot more light-hearted than this place will ever be.

    Please don't triple post, and make your own thread.
    Back to the legendary business
    Exactly! I was the only one in my neiborhood to dislike using legendaries. My true team has no legendaries in them, and when i do use them it's only for the elite four in fire red and still I only did that once.

    Well, legendaries actually require skill to use. You just have never battled one competitively. If you ban Legendaries, then technically you're banning Salamence, Metagross, Tyranitar and Dragonite although they aren't legendaries. Their stats are higher than the trios and some of the 4 is even better than the legends.
    That sums up stuff. In an uber vs. uber battle, they require full strategism. Like Groudon. You may just say blagh blagh blagh, who cares, but then without a good moveset, Groudon isn't gonna hurt. The Swords Dance or the Choice Band movesets are the best for it, while things like Solarbeam Groudon is just lol

    ... can anyone tell me the logic of Leech Seed on Breloom? Breloom's defenses are so weak, how could he possibly use it effectively?

    Yeah! baton passers are very useful, you're right about that, but I think umbreon also deserves some attention as a baton passer. with the baton pass/mean look-combo he may be able to set up counter-pkmn to the opponent, after trapping them and he also has enough defensive stats to toxic the foe.

    Speed and Substitute can generally make up for its crap defense, if you switch it in against a Bliss or something. Same goes for a fairly similar Pokemon, Sceptile, generally regarded as one of the most annoying Seed Stallers.

    Breloom is commonly used on spikes teams where leech seed forces switches. Every time a pokemon switches out of its leech seed prison and there are 3 layers of spikes on the field, it will take 25%. This is a very annoying but wonderful strategy to lower the foes hp and have a cleaner stat up and sweep. It can also be worked with substitute where you sub over and over again to avoid being hit while leech seed recovers hp and saps hp away from the foe. Sceptile can do this better with 374 speed and a stab leaf blade, but breloom has the 100% accurate spore, 394 stabbed focus punch, and stun spore for doublepowder.

    Ingame, leech seed is more of a filler.

    I have a helpful hint for Emerald. Duplicate 3 or more pokemon* holding leftovers and then take off the leftovers and you have leftovers for every pokemon in your team!

    *Go to the battle tower and deposit the pokemon you wish the duplicate each in a different box (they do not have to be empty). Now log off and save the game. Open the box back up and take out each pokemon you deposited in the same order you did it. Go to the lady behind the counter closest to you. Tell her you want to make a challenge. She will tell you to pick the 2 pokemon to enter. Pick any two and she will ask you to save the game. Say yes and the game will freeze for 2 seconds when after it is done freezing, turn the game off. When you turn it back on the pokemon you chose to duplicate will be in your team and in the box! This is not a cheat it is a glitch.

    This might be a stupid question but why do people like Explosion on Metagross in it's in-game? I mean I already know it's very powerful, with a 250 base attack and with Meta's 405 attack stat(Max Atk IV with Adamant) would kill most things under the sun, but seriously now we're playing in-game where you can alway heal the fool mid-fight, why use it when to me it's olny real use is when you're about to die.

    Note I might have already answered my question, but I would like to hear from a expert about this thing.

    for in-game, actually playing through the storyline, i don't know anybody who uses explosion.

    for in-game things like the battle frontier, it's useful.
    Pearl FC is 1761 9576 5676, White FC 3310 3986 5019, If you're interested in a pokemon i've posted, and you have something i could be interested in (see below) please PM me. Trade thread here. i also offer custom breeding services, for a price.

    Want: female DW Sableye, Offering: Most other good DW females

    Just my opinion, but giving Hidden Power as an option is fine if you give a non-hidden power alternate choice.

    I was wondering if I were to use a 'special' combination of moves where my pokemon like sudowoodo or other, learned a move which it should never have...like water gun. Would this count as being fair, if I were to use this and get one or two pokemon that have a super good attack.
