    It's just stronger than the other two.

    OK. I think it's pointless leaving this open, no? Final score:

    BONE CLUB - 0 Probably because it's just dull...
    BONE RUSH - 2

    Well, I'm glad I once again picked a winner. Do I rock or what? :p Now for another three way face-off (aren't three ways more fun than just with two? :eek:)


    I think we all know which will win but I've been surprised before. These are all the signature moves of the final stage of the Houen starters. Sceptile (and Grovyle) have Leaf Blade, Blaziken has Blaze Kick and Swampert (and Marshtomp) have Muddy Water. My vote is for Leaf Blade because not only did we need a really good grass attack which needn't be charged, it is the only one of the three moves with 100 accuracy and I much prefer accuracy over power (within reason people, Fire Blast is still better than Constrict...). MAVIS COMMANDS YOU TO VOTE NOW! DON'T MAKE HER ANGRY!!!

    ROFMFAO, wow, that is gutsy.

    I was going to choose Muddy Water, but then you reminded me that there are many strong water type moves, Hydro Pump, Hydro Cannon, Water Spout, Water Fall, Surf ect. So I choose Leaf Blade, because it is more needed.

    Well, I like to keep a bit of humour in things and if that involves pushing the envelope just a little, then so be it. :p OK now, current tally:

    LEAF BLADE - 2
    BLAZE KICK - 1

    Like Cloud Strife, I was originally going to vote for Muddy Water but Leaf Blade is much more needed in my opinion. Hell, we've got Surf, Hydro Pump, Waterfall and Water Spout for Water types. For fire types we've got Flamethrower, Fire Blast, Fire Punch and Eruption. But don't let that sway your votes any. VOTE! NOW! MAVIS COMMANDS YOU!

    Well I dont want Blazekick to win *whips Blaziken* and that Muddy water is a Surf clone (seriously all they changed was its name, accuracy, and the color of the water in the animation...the efforts there *coughs*) So I'm going with Leaf Blade...it has a nice animation in the game and looks SO cool in the anime so.......LEAF BLADE!!!!

    Muddy water.. Why?

    1. name sounds cool
    2. the animation rocks
    and 3. will look good with a surf/muddy water combo (if it was one)
  9. O Fortuna

    O Fortuna Velut luna.

    Hmm. Over twelve hours with no votes so I'll just wrap this one up. Final score:

    LEAF BLADE - 3
    BLAZE KICK - 1

    Well, that was boring and uneventful... *sigh* Well, now for a monogamous face-off for a change.

    CURSE ;354; VS. CURSE ;199;

    You all knew this one would come eventually, didn't you? We have Curse ;354; which is the ghost type Curse where half the HP of the user is cut and a curse is placed on the opponent whereby they lose one quarter of their HP every turn until either they faint or switch. We also have Curse ;199; whereby the user's ATTACK and DEFENCE stats rise one stage, while their SPEED drops one stage. All non-ghost type Cursers use the Slowking Curse. When placing your vote either state whose Curse you're voting for (Banette or Slowking) or if you're clever enough, put the little icon for them. :p MAVIS COMMANDS YOU TO VOTE NOW! BEFORE SHE CURSES YOU IN WAYS YOU NEVER KNEW OF!!!
  10. Golden_Latias

    Golden_Latias #SlayQueenSlay

    I vote for the 2nd 1 cuz its an awesome move for tanks.
  11. O Fortuna

    O Fortuna Velut luna.

    So that would be Curse Slowking..... Please vote how I asked...
  12. zsun_44

    zsun_44 Banned

    i vote for the slowking curse, because its more effective i reckon
  13. Cloud Strife

    Cloud Strife JElliot

    You call it Slowking, I call it Snorlax, (Curselax ring a bell) he was unimaginably strong with that move. So I vote for the Slowking one.
  14. .Bambi.

    .Bambi. Be Wise, Tell Lies.

    I vote Curse ;199;!

    Ha! I put the little Slowking icon like you asked! Yup, I'm that perfect :p But ya...half HP? What if ther Ghost Pokemon isn't that powerful and get KOed on the next hit? Plus, the ;199; Curse is better for Tanks and such as they dont need the speed but the attack and defence (as you already know!)
  15. O Fortuna

    O Fortuna Velut luna.

    So, gee how upsetting. Final score:

    CURSE ;354; - 1
    CURSE ;199; - 4

    Well, I realise the Slowking curse (although as Cloud Strife said, Curselax is better...) is better but I love ghost types so that got me down... Now, next we have a foursome! :eek: Gee, how very French! :p


    All the one hit KO moves. My vote is for Sheer Cold as it is the only one to not face immunities. Fissure can't hit flying and the other two can't hit ghost. MAVIS COMMANDS YOU TO VOTE!
  16. zsun_44

    i choose sheer cold
  17. Cloud Strife

    Cloud Strife JElliot

    I vote Fissure, since it is the only one I have ever used (Giovanni gave it as a TM, so I actually used it. And only one of them (can't remember which one, but I think it was fissure, can hit Pokemon at a higher level than itself.
  18. .Bambi.

    .Bambi. Be Wise, Tell Lies.

    I vote Sheer Cold because its fun! Freezing the enemy...god I love Ice Types...also as Ruujura ever so kindy pointed out Sheer Cold has no weaknesses (even though Horn Drill and Guillotine could easily be solved with a Foresight on Ghost types....but then again I'm pretty sure all Pokemon that can learn those moves cant learn Foresight as well....hmmm....) YEAH SHEER COLD!!!
  19. GardevoirMaster

    GardevoirMaster Legendary Pokémon Coordinator

    I also vote for Sheer Cold, b/c it hits all types, and its learned by some of my favorite Pokemon, I never use the other three attacks in R/S
  20. O Fortuna

    O Fortuna Velut luna.

    Final tally:

    FISSURE - 1
    HORN DRILL - 0
    SHEER COLD - 4

    Well, we have a winner! Sheer Cold, but I can't say it comes as any surprise. Now I'm starting a series of eight different face-offs which you should easily be able to guess the order of.


    Yes, they are both the moves found in the TMs Brock gives you. Bide is in RGBY and Rock Tomb is in FRLG. Now, I never owned Gold or Silver so I'm not sure if he gives you anything when you fight him in the future. If so, PM me and I'll adjust accordingly. Otherwise, vote! My vote is for Bide. While they are both crappy moves, if you know your Pokemon can take the hits the opponent is going to dish out, you might as well Bide and dish it back double the power! Rock Tomb sucks. It has low power, bad accuracy and also has a bad animation but don't let me deter you. Both these moves suck!!! MAVIS COMMANDS YOU TO VOTE NOW!
