• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Do you use the Red Gyarados?

I like the red gyarados. never had a shiny before (must admit never went through much trouble trying to find/breed one) He's a very dependable pokemon. Ice fang, surf, fire blast and dragon pulse makes it a well rounded pokemon.

I usually use him as he's one of the best HM slaves in the game...otherwise, no I never really cared much for Gyarados.

I always catch it, but I never use it tho.


i use him for online battling. his stats are pretty good and a good pwner in battles.


Spring is Coming!
I used to use it in-game when I played G/S, as it was the only shiny I ever got. Then in Crystal, I got another shiny, so I didn't feel obligated to use the Red Gyarados.

Now, it's just for collecting reasons. I just try to get a decent nature and some good IV's and then leave it in my box for later use (trading?) or something.

I use him in the main game just because I like him.

Only after I beat the game with my SS team did I replace my modest natures Feraligatr with my EV trained Red Gyarados.

sometimes I do, sometimes I don't

I used the Red Gyarados from time to time, switching him with a Lapras whenever I need to.

It returned after I beat the E4 so I caught it but only used it for the pokethelon since it was really fast.


I love the red Gyarados especially when it is going out with a battle with the effects of the premier ball and the shiny effects on it =w=


Wanna hug?
I used him in my first playthrough, but that was because I prefer Gyrados above Feraligatr and you don't need to train a Magikarp for it.


I use him in the Pokelathon.
