Liza and Tate? A good Concept, or a load of dissapointment.

Discussion in 'Pokémon Generation III Discussion' started by Sapphiredragon929, Aug 12, 2009.


Do you think that the double battle gym leaders was a good idea?

  1. Great concept, not that good in actuality.

  2. I hated the double battle thing already.

  3. It was great idea, it was a fun battle.

  4. The battle was not that exciting, but I liked the idea.

  5. I never played the third generation.

  1. They were amusing... Till it got to the point where I lost about 5 rounds. Try doing a Scramble Challenge with no Swampert. The double battle concept is really fun!

    I liked the idea of a double battle gym leader, but Liza and Tate were far too easy in R/S. It was a bit better in Emerald, but not by much.

    They were truly a combination. During my first time with them, my strategy went out of sync due to the incomprehensible measures of Solrock and Lunatone! Who knew something like Tate and Liza could be so powerful with Psychic? Where have those years gone by? I remember those challenges flowing by.

    I don't like double battling, but it was a nice new addition, though it was bit hard and especially with the Psychic type. I remember that I had Blaziken, so it was a hard one, yet my Tentacruel helped a lot.

    True story: I have had a Sharpedo to go against these guys every time I have faced them. Only one have I not Super Rodded it in the very same cits, and that was my mono-type Water run of Sapphire.

    I always ending up having more than one Water type, so I just bring those guys out and surfspam.

    They were the toughest gym leaders I have ever faced in all my 11 years of playing Pokemon games.
    No matter what type advantage I had, they always beat me at least twice before I was able to beat them for the first time.

    There's not enough double battling in the games.
    A note should be made that in a later game, we should get the choice of facing the leader in a double battle or a single.
    If you chose single, you'd get their normal team(if they have an odd number or pokez for their team), if you chose double, an extra pokemon would be added to their team(depending on whether or not they had an even number to begin with).
    I'd definitely take on a double battle league for the challenge and fun.

    I think Double Battles were a great idea, but Liza & Tate were very annoying and hard to beat.

    I think the fact they were hard to beat is a good thing, and I think they are an idea that worked very well. I'd like to see it again at some point.

    I like it, but darn....... that gym's puzzle was freaking annoying! Bt I have to admit, THE most challenging battle/puzzle I've had. It gave me a weird adrendaline while playing it, and i actually had to CONCENTRATE in the battle, which I've never done in In-game

    Dear god that battle was pain. More so in Emerald I believe.
    I never lose on my first try in Gym battles, not even Norman thanks to my Mach Punching Breloom.
    But Lisa and Tate? Very difficult but exiting battle. Hats off to GAMEFREAK

    Hard to beat? As if. I saved the game before I battled them, won in 2 hits. I actually went back and defeated them with two other Pokémon for sh*ts and giggles!

    So, yeah, disappointing as hell despite the awesome concept.

    Probably the hardest gym leaders in the game. In Emerald, anyway. Calm Minding Xatu with Claydol spamming Earthquake messes me over way too many times.
  15. I liked the concept, as I actually prefer double battles to one-on-one. But they were way too hard to beat in Emerald. >:

    This was a good concept, though I didnt notice until now :(

    It was really fun, and a little difficult at first, however..

    I liked how it was a double battle gym battle. The battle was hard though. I liked it a lot though.

    Pkmn Breeder Jack Static owns you.

    They were annoying pushovers. Not extremely hard, but I generally dislike doubles, so it was annoying for me.

    Staryu I know, I know..

    I think I beat them too easily than I would have liked. Good try though.
