    Zelda games discussion

    I find that Link's Awakening hasn't aged very well. The dungeons are fairly short and there isn't much content outside of the main game. Still, everything it does contain is done perfectly and it still has the best story in any Zelda game to date.

    Zelda games discussion

    The biggest problem of Skyward Sword, aside from its terrible controls, is the complete lack of an overworld. Exploration has always been what makes Zelda so legendary. Skyward Sword decided to throw it away entirely. There are four areas in the game: the starting hub area, which contains the...

    Pokemon Elite Four's Getting Too Easy?

    In RB almost all the E4 Pokemon have only level-up moves. They have at most one weak TM move, such as Lance's Pokemon all carrying Hyper Beam. This means that most of the time the Pokemon are stuck with just Normal type moves. Lorelei is difficult and a few of your Rival's Pokemon are very...

    Official Serebii 5th Gen Tier List & Standard Rules Discussion Thread

    The "competitive" Smogon is proposing we start without tiers, while the "casual" Serebii suggest we do start with an initial tierlist? Am I the only one who finds this a bit peculiar?

    Wish is still a two-turn move, just like it was before. Turn 1: Pokémon X uses Wish Foe Y does move Turn 2: Pokémon X switches out, Pokémon Z switches in Foe Y does move Wish heals Pokémon Z The only difference with Wish is that Wish now heals 50% of the users HP, not the recipients...

    Mewtwo also has 106/90/90 Defenses. Mewtwo can actually switch in or take a priority attack (min/min Mewtwo takes 50.1% - 58.9% from Scizor's Bullet Punch). Mewtwo has a far better movepool and better balanced stats, allowing it to also run a supporting set with Taunt and Dual Screens, a...

    Whats your favorite Nintendo system?

    N64. Mario 64, Pokémon Stadium, Pokémon Snap, Donkey Kong 64, SSB64, Goldeneye, Banjo Kazooie, Lylat Wars, Mario Kart 64, Bomberman 64, etc. The Gamecube, SNES, Gameboy and NES also have their quality games, but not nearly as many as the Nintendo 64.

    Perhaps, although those 50/50/50 defenses and horrendous typing are making me doubt.

    Official Serebii 5th Gen Tier List & Standard Rules Discussion Thread

    There were no Smogon 4th Gen Doubles rules. Because Shoddy didn't support Doubles, there was no controlled environment to test them in, so Smogon never got a chance to create an "official" banlist or ruleset.

    No, they're still pretty much 50/50 on the subject. Only now the "Initial Banlist" side is trying to put together such a banlist. This is because they suspect most commoners are voting "No Bans" on the public poll because they have no idea what an initial banlist will look like. Even on the...

    Priority Taunt/Encore and a non-support phazing move (Dragon Tail) are enough to guarantee Deoxys-S a spot in OU. Especially with your opponent's team being visible before the start of the battle, Deoxys-S isn't nearly as effective doing the things that made him Uber previous generation...

    Bye Blissey; how certain pokes and moves will change the metagame

    Chansey can't carry a Shed Shell. Especially with Seismic Toss, she is utter set-up bait for Wobbuffet and Chandelier, or Wynaut if those two get banned. Wynaut and Wobby can Encore her into a supportive attack, such as Softboiled, and proceed to Tickle her to -6 where she can get taken out by a...

    The First of Many! A 5th Generation Uber RMT

    Encourage/Brute Force doesn't work the way you described. It only boosts attacks with chance-based secondary effects, such as Fire Blast and Psychic. It doesn't do anything for the moves you listed. You still get locked into Outrage, you still die from Explosion and neither of them gains a power...

    So your Blaziken runs Swords Dance/Flare Blitz/High Jump Kick/Stone Edge/Protect/Substitute? Or does it also run Thunderpunch, Fire Blast, Overheat, HP Grass and Vacuum Wave? If you run Stone Edge, you'll get countered by Scarfers. If you run Protect or Sub, you'll get beaten by Dragonite and...
