Battle Mistakes

Discussion in 'General Pokémon Discussion' started by PerseusRad, Mar 25, 2012.

    PerseusRad I see you. And you.

    Just post missteps you have had during a battle. In a 4th gen. match I was battling a friend with Rayquaza and Groudon. I didn't know why Solarbeam had to be charged. :p

    If there is a thread like this, please close this one.

    I used to think dark Pokemon were weak to psychic.

    Another one I had is I thought Whitney's Miltank's Rollout wouldn't hit my Noctowl.

    I used to always wonder why my Infernape's Close Combat would not hit Mismagius.......

    I wasn't paying attention to the battle I had yesterday with my friend. Because of that, I kept using earthquake on Eelektross for about 4 to 5 times.

    I was battling against a trainer in-game, and they sent out a Machamp. I forgot I was battling a trainer and tried to catch the thing for about 20 turns until I remembered it wasn't wild.

    Paddy185 Landbro T is cool :)

    I used to think Rock types were strong against Steel types. Commence immense confusion to me when Rock Slide did nothing to Byron's Steelix.

    I was about to get a 21 streak at the battle subway yesterday when I took my eye of the screen and used toxic instead of protect leading to my loss.

    For the longest time I thought Grass was weak to Psychic. I didn't get why my Venusaur seemed to be the only Grass type that Psychic moves were effective against......

    I used to think rock resists rock. I'm still suprised that it doesn't...

    Why isn't electric super effective on steel?! Steels a great conductor!

    I clicked on explosion instead of earthquake. There had been a Steel type in the battle.

    I also couldn't find the weakness to dark after I found out that it wasn't weak to psychic...I was very stupid way back then. I didn't know how to use google...

    I remember when Steel types first came out I thought that they were weak to Water.

    Yesterday, I was against Wallace. He was using his Tentacruel, I with my Gardevoir. He used 3... FRICKIN'... FULL RESTORES!!! Then my Gardevoir ran out of PP, and she got KOed... stupid Emerald AI.

    Gardevoirs psychic didn't ko it?

    He might not have had it. It also could have been very weak.

    No psychic on gardevoir? That's like pancakes without syrup. Or McDonald's with no big Mac. (yes i realize big macs are disgusting..)

    Didn't figure out that Grass wasn't weak to Psychic until about a month ago.. I've been playing Pokemon since Crystal. >_>

    Hahaha nice. That was probably because you fought venasaur and psychic was super effective. Poison is weak to psychic.
