Hey, saw your post in the Gen V recent happenings thread! Thought it was a cool team, Scolipede and Carracosta were strong contenders for my own if I'd found them earlier/wasn't using Archeops. Shame we couldn't play along with one another, maybe next time though! I used to be snivy trainer on the forums (I keep forgetting the password so I remade the account) so I guess if we did that would be a bit of deja vu huh?
So um... Hopefully you remember me but what the hell, it's been forever! How you doing my dude?!
Sorry for being so **** at replying ages ago. Can't promise I will be any better, but I was going on serebii, and started reading old posts and conversations and I thought, **** it let's see how he's doing :')
Haha, really? I'd just beaten Winona on OR, but got bored with the team. Blaziken, Shiftry, Vibrava, Mawile, Vigoroth and... something I can't remember. I'm probably going to play it this weekend or something, might convince my brother to do a monotype with me. Ground, Flying, Water, Fighting, Normal, Bug and Electric are all decently possible.
I don't particularly like the 3D moving sprites and characters that now dominate XY and ORAS, but I did like the new Pokemon, and the roller-skates. And some of the gyms. I didn't like the ease of leveling - keep Exp.Share on and you're team is 65-70+ by the E4. Didn't like that at all, think it should've been slightly harder to level (not FR/LG difficulty, but D/P/Pt level).
Nice, I do like your team thus far. Infernape and Luxray are awesome Pokemon, and Gastrodon is pretty cool as well now that I think about it. I've noticed recently I've been wanting to use "weaker" Pokemon (regional bugs for example, really wanting to use Butterfree/Mothim/Wormadam/Vivillon/Parasect on teams) but my current Pearl team will be pretty solid going into it. Might be better to do it on Platinum, but there's less nostalgia there.
Gen IV is great, probably my favourite generation to date (mainly because I started there). Gen III was decent, Gen V was OK and Gen VI was good. Gen's I and II I never experienced bar their remakes.
I never played the original games. I'd have liked to, but I don't own anything that I could play it on bar an emulator (which is a bit meh...) so I never bothered. LeafGreen is fun though, don't know what I'd use. Lots of possibilities.
