Disgusting.

Torterra and Empoleon are good. Any fighting type for Ice and steel types, or Staraptor with Close Combat.

Infernape, Ponyta, Magmar, Houndoom and Flareon are fine. Would you be happier if they threw Torkoal in too?

It's a pretty big oversight, I'll give you that.
And Sinnoh did the same mistake Johto did by making most of the new pokemon available postgame.
>>
>>25054190
Hippopotas is really rare; you'd have to know it's there and your chances of finding one to slog through that.

I wanted to use Magmortar on my Pearl team; god that was torture.

My only problem with DPP was that the only worthwhile wild pokemon were rare as fuck. I never even caught Drapion until gen 5 or something.

At least I owned one of those guides so I knew where to look for Gible
>>
>>25053965
>>25053973
I really fucking hope the inevitable remake includes an expanded dex.

I fucking hate Sinnoh so I really doubt I'll get it unless the postgame and Megas (or whatever) are god-tier, but I am curious to see if they bother to improve the originals at all.

Why would I choose anything other than comfy comfy turtwig?

This could apply to every type. Nobody would want a game where the only Flying type is Zubat, the only Rock type Geudude, or the only Fighting type is Mankey.

Because ice is shit. The lack of ice types is doing you a favor.

>using fire types in sinnoh
shamefru dispray

Sinnoh had some great pokemon, even if they had shitty fire types. Including a lot of great ice types
>>
Honestly, OP? Up until Gen6 when I picked Fennekin, I NEVER used a Fire Pokemon on my team.
>>
>>25055184
Water types can cover for ice types, most of the time.
RS Hoenn dex is shit though, I´ll grant you that.

>>25054289
Fuck you. Rare strong Pokemon reward you for exploring and add a sense of mystery, things that've been lost since gen 4. I felt like a fucking gangster when I discovered the secret entrance to Wayward Cave on my own, nothing since has come close.
>>
>>25054289
I think that was great. Having to work hard for good Pokémon is a good thing. Shit like being able to just randomly run into a Bagon on the route to the second gym sucks dick.
>>
>>25055717
I loved how many Pokemon you could just catch in XY, but hated the way they spread them out.
Some things should not be accessible so easily so early.

The lack of Ice-types is fucking unforgivable when such a large chunk of the region is snowy.

You can get eevee in the trophy garden before the national dex, right?
>>
>>25055852
No, post-dex.

>>25055782
At least they kinda fixed it in Platinum with Glaceon, Swinub and Snorunt.
>>
>>25053965

>>25053965

Jokes on you faggot. I played through with Chimchar AND Ponyta exclusively. Enjoy your gay ass grass and water, cunt.

When I first played Pearl, my final party was Crobat, Golduck, Medicham, and a Bibarel HM slave. There just weren't enough Pokemon for to bother using. Thankfully Platinum fixed that.
>>
>>25056181
>pokemon that evolve past level 30 that aren't starters/pseudos in general
That's why I never use early game Psyduck in the Sinnoh games, even in Nuzlockes
Some pokemon like Koffing are ok though
>>
>>25056191
Why even have pokemon in the game if there's no chance in hell you'll ever get them fully evolved before the 8th gym/end credits? Or better yet, pokemon accessable only AFTER said credits that aren't legendaries.
>>
>>25056157
And why Candice uses a Medicham and why Flint uses a Steelix. GF really dropped the ball when they made the DP Dex.
>>
>>25056185
Magmortar has options out of the ass, but you'll need a Magmarizer and a trade to get it.
Houndoom's easier, has a mure useful ability, and I think it's available slightly earlier as well.
I'd go with Houndoom for simplicity and Dark STAB, but either would probably work fine.
>>
>>25056191
I hope they retcon their evolution levels
Past level 50 evolutions for basic and weak pokemon is seriously unacceptable
Leveling was very poorly designed in gen 5
>>
>>25055184

Gamefreak's master plan.

They force you to purchase games like this.

One region has good fire types. The other, good ice types. Simple, no?
>>
>>25056185

Houndoom because it doesn't look like shit
>>
>>25056235
>good fire types
>torkoal, camerupt, and magcargo are only accessible until after the 3rd gym, and ninetales doesn't even appear until mt fucking pyre
>three are slow and near unusable, meaning your best bet is Blaziken
>meanwhile Sinnoh at least gives you decent fire options with Rapidash, Houndoom, Flareon, and Magmortar, admittedly only in Platinum, but still
>>
>>25054289
Ho shit, I thought Drapion was a Gen 5 mon. Didn't know its dex number.
>>
>>25057308
>Flareon
>decent fire type
