  1. ^ ur 2 slow yeah that's a fun set though I think you'd be better off with speed instead of HP since you'll really want it after a polishin, but both can work depending on what you're up against
  2. you forgot @Big the Cat
  3. Rhyperior is one of my favorite Pokemon competitively, particularly for Battle Spot Singles. (The official online competitive format used in the Pokemon games, wherein a team of 6 is brought like normal but only 3 are sent into battle.) It's a fantastic tank, and with my favorite item for it, the Assault Vest, it can be slapped onto basically any team. Obviously should be kept away from most Grass and Water types, but otherwise this set can take most any abuse thanks to Rhyperior's great bulk/incredible Solid Rock ability and hit back hard. Basically the competitive term "tank" exemplified. Rhyperior @ Assault Vest Ability: Solid Rock EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD Adamant Nature - Rock Blast - Earthquake - Ice Punch - Fire Punch / Horn Drill Earthquake is powerful STAB that can easily be spammed, Rock Blast gets unbelievably good coverage with Ground and is used over Stone Edge or Rock Slide for things like sashes and substitute, Ice Punch eviscerates opposing Ground types such as Garchomp, and Landorus, Fire Punch rounds things out by getting the few annoying Steels Ground doesn't snag like Celesteela and Ferrothorn. Horn Drill is also a solid option in place of Fire Punch to deal with the few walls Rhyperior doesn't fell such as Cresselia and Hippowdon, while still taking advantage of Rhyperior's ability to take hits from these opponents.

      though the animation style does have its origins in japan, yellow skin isn't actually a qualifier for something being anime

       

      easy mistake

  5. I'll take the occasionally cruel but at the very least modestly varied inner mechanics over a kind of helpless acceptance, a viewpoint not unlike that of a creator deity, by which every irregularity or symmetry, be they cracks in the sidewalk, cobwebs by a window, or portly waterfowl, is entirely and unalterably beautiful- perhaps on the individual scale this model of viewing life can be sustained, but when opened to others it inevitably withers and drains the life of its hosts, having been too low on substance the whole time to sustain more than a diminutive amount of lost souls seeking nothing more than long-forgotten feelings of desire. also pelipper is annoying
  6. Pansear's community average is 6.6! And today's Pokemon is... #279 Pelipper! My rating: 4 There are some nice things about Pelipper, so I'll get those out of the way. It's a pelican, and those are great. The design is also okay and it has a funny cry. Now moving on to the other stuff. Pelipper, almost every time I've used, encountered, and in general interacted with is a pain in the rear. My first experience with Pelipper was it being the most common encounter on that ocean route above Sunyshore in Pearl, a spot that would be nice for grinding if Pelipper didn't spam Protect and Stockpile. In ORAS, they're extremely common as well and love to mess up your water chains. In Sun and Moon, they gave it Drizzle. While I'm all for buffing weaker Pokemon, this thing becomes an even bigger pain in the ass in-game and now competitively too. The times I've used Pelipper in playthroughs or battles, though, it's always disappointing. Almost as if it's just good at being annoying but not much else. (none of this is to say that I hate pelipper with burning passion or anything I mean it's fine but I've found it annoying and since hey I'm bound to like the majority of Pokemon I have to deduct more points for these things when they come up)
  7. 5/10, Okay color, but there were way better options for a skunk Pokemon than an offbeat pink. Black, Green, or even Gray would've looked way cooler I'd say.

  10. Toxicroak's community rating is 7.6! And today's Pokemon is... #513 Pansear! My rating: 8 For some reason, when Black and White was out in Japan but not in the US yet, one of the Pokemon among the rather long list of new additions that really stood out to me was Pansear. Not sure why. And, to this day, still not too sure why I like Pansear. I did use Pansear on my first time playing White, and I in general was rather fond of the idea that you'd get to receive a Pokemon that balances out your starter's weaknesses. Not much else to say though. So yeah, liked using it, cool idea, nostalgia and a design that appeals to me a bit more puts it over the other monkeys for me.
  11. Yeah, Escavailer and the other mons you listed Big would have been pretty good candidates for their respective categories. But, due to my unfortunate weird rules when it comes to using Pokemon for things I wanted to make sure we got a mon for each gen, and thus had to make most of the section's options of a single generation of Pokemon. I suppose it was a mistake to try and use the multiple generations for the artwork category when everyone just voted smeargle, but hey I assumed there'd be more of a contest between it and mimikyu oops oh yeah and I'll see whatever the results are and do the things in around an hour
  12. Well, I chose Aegislash because your classic role-playing games are associated with fantasy settings, often with tools of battle like swords and shields being featured prominently. Pyroar's there because it's got a regal kingly look to it, which once again fits in with a fantasy theme, and something about its stern appearance also felt fitting. Trevenant's there because... well, it's spooky and scary and can be easily imagined within a setting, which is a kind of enemy you'd probably deal a lot with in an RP. (Def the weakest link lol I just wanted four options.) Finally, while Hawlucha's general vibe might make it feel more suiting for something like the battling section, I thought it would still be a solid candidate for the RP one due to its being based on professional wrestlers, who take on exaggerated personalities/characters and essentially are just role-paying in the context of a physical altercation. of course there's always better options but wanted to slip gen 6 mons in here somewhere and figured aegislash and hawlucha at least worked fairly well so hey
