Same OP. Feels good not playing with anything from Gen 4 and beyond.
>>
>>24962716
Exactly. No EV or IV bullshit to deal with, I'm playing it on a 5.5 inch screen with a bluetooth controller, super comfy.

>>24962704

But Gen 3 is where all that nonsense was introduced?

Do you have any idea how fucking hard it is to IV breed in gen 3?
>>
>>24962743
they were introduced in gen 1 retard
>>
>>24962758
DVs were present in Gens 1 and 2 yes, but worked differently than IVs and EVs, which were introduced in Gen 3.
>>
>>24962813
Are you implying they were any less fucking complicated?
>>
>>24962752
>tumblrtale
disregarded opinion just kidding not them but i'm pretty sure they're just the type that thinks EVs ever mattered ingame or some shit and since Gen IV had online play competitive became stronger that gen so they associate Gen 1-3 with no competitive autism, yet there was always competitive autism
>>
>>24962813
and IVs and EVs were introduced in gen 2, you don't know shit
>>
outside of breeding, is there any difference between gen i-ii ivs and gen iii-vi ivs except an extra bit
>>
>>24962704
Sinking Sapphire, just started five minutes ago.
Still thinking about what kinda team I wanna go with, Drayano makes good difficulty hacks but if I use mons that are too strong it'll be as easy as any other Pokemon game.

Only one way to find out.

Try to ram every boss by getting to +6/+6 with DD Gyarados. If you succeed, you are correct.

There's a lot of surprises, you try this on Winona's lead Skarm and you're going to eat a Rock Slide.

8/10 it's ok
>>
>>24962876
So I just took a peep at the trainer list and
Now I have to revise my entire team because Wally looks like he'd rape me six ways to Sunday.
>>
>>24963758
I had to take two tries against Wally because I thought I'd outspeed Garchomp the first time and I foddered a mon for no reason because I thought my Dedenne would OHKO Mega Gallade with Moonblast and since it was -Speed natured it had to be there before Mega Evolving to outspeed.

The fucker had Protect.

Wally was my absolute favorite battle in the game thus far.

trying to get a golden print from platinum's battle factory
holy shit, never seen a worse rng based place, real hell, they lure you with good sets in the first 4 streaks, then give you 80% of shitmons against hyper offensive mons or give you 240 speed latios

the only positive thing is that i ended with 1000+ battle points...but i'm mad as fuck at this bs
>>
>>24963798
This is the team I was going to fight him with, notice how most of them have under 500 BST.

I'm still at the beginning of the game but this is what I was honestly planning on playing with thinking I'd manage fine without having to overlevel but I've since dropped Maractus, Gardevoir and Vespiquen. May actually train a Gardevoir for muh symbolism but the rest is up in the air in terms of underused favourites.
>>
>>24962704
Anyone got any ideas for a fun run? I got leafgreen and Sapphire to choose between.

Not a fan of nuzlockes.
>>
>>24963853
>Pidgeot
Well I can congratulate you on garbage taste in Megas, but in reality, Gardevoir is very good for the fight considering Garchomp and MeGallade.

>>24963867
Every area you RNG a type. You can only get a mon of that type there.

Route 112 and Route 104, as examples, count as two different areas as they have completely different wild encounters. Gamefreak actually put them in as two seperate maps this time.

If, say, your Route 101 type is Psychic, you may catch from the Fennekin hordes there because it evolves into a Psychic-type.

If you catch a Snorunt when your type is Ghost, it must be female so it can evolve into a Froslass. This should provide a precedent on split evos.

You can have a slave for Sweet Scenting Hordes, but only if you absolutely have no Pokemon that can, or could have learned it under your control.

If nothing, well you got fucked over by the RNG. It might be doable considering how vast the amount of catches are.
>>
>>24963912
Also catching mons isn't like a Nuzlocke, catch as many as you like for that combo of Type+Area

Also though a Pokemon must be eligible to evolve into that type, you don't have to. An Eevee caught under Fire-type can evolve into Vaporeon which has moves.

Heart Gold. Currently in Olivine and about to cross the sea.

Team is Quilava, Golbat, Krabby, Weepinbell.

>Hating Mega Pidgeot
His model might be shit but his design is the closest I'll get to the doodles of pidgeot I used to do in the back of my notebooks as a child. It's childhood wish fulfillment.
>>
>>24962821
You forgot something, Battle Frontier loves it.
>>
>>24963983
Crazy haircut is wish fulfillment?
>>
>>24964105
Yes. The only thing different is that the feathers on the head arent all the same length as the longest one but other than that the color change and long ass head feather is what I wanted out of Pidgeot for years and this is the closest gamefreak managed to give me.

What I want to know is what special power the pokedex has that allows it to prevent certain types of Pokemon from evolving
>>
>>24964632
What if it's not that the trainer fills in the dex based on the Pokemon, but the Pokedex fabricates Pokemon based on pre-loaded information?

As if the dex were some sort of handheld gaming device?

This. I never understood why anybody was upset to see this bullshit not in ORAS. Who the fuck wants to play this when there's superior, less horseshit options to get BP?

>>24965160
Datamining and romhacking Black and white confirmed the Subway trainers read player inputs, but its blatantly obvious anyway (such as switching out when a shadow Tag/mean look user switches on the last turn of Perish song).

So yes.

it can be still handled in all the remaining battle facilities (even the battle arcade) because you can use your own pokemon, this means gimmick sets and strategies to keep the rng and ai in check

the battle factory is 50% shit sets and 50% good sets with 100% rng involved bullshit awaiting you since the 5 streak

in fact the battle factory is one of the most difficult if not nearly impossible facilities to complete with a golden print, even when a battle factory moveset and other info list exists
>>

You're weak.
I completed the Emerald Battle Frontier when I was 11.
