Mantyke. I just feel it could have been designer a bit better... And it has a creepy smiley face on its back! And I didn't get a chance to try and redeem it because its only available near the end of the game...
I don't remember anything being disappointing; everything on my team definitely had its strengths and weaknesses. For example: Though my Vanillish did take a lot longer to evolve fully than the others, it still had decent sp. attack and could take out ground, grass, and dragons.
Hopefully Empoleon and Absol. Empoleon because Piplup was the first Pokemon I ever got on a handheld game. Absol just because its one of my all-time ultimate favorites, and its sucker punch is pretty amazing.
Whenever the new season does premier, I'd like to see more of Asami. Many times she was there in the scenes, but didn't really say anything while the other characters stole the show. Her part in the finale was pretty amazing, though. I also want to see who the new Fire Lord is; it's the first...
Are these the real 5th gen names in english?
I just want to know, they probly arent.
I remember in one of my replays on Diamond or Pearl I was against Cyrus at Spear Pillar, and his paralyzed lv45 Gyarados had low HP, and I had a lvl 23 HM slave Gyarados that survived a hit from his Crobat. I used Dragon Rage and knocked it out! =D I know it's not that epic, but still.
Give it Swords Dance to sweep because of its high attack, and Brick Break to do some damage as well as break walls. You should also teach it Sucker Punch if you can as its a physical move that has Priority +1. In doule battles pairing it with a Sand Stream Pokemon like Tyranitar could be helpful...
