I think my playthrough might be cursed. Aside from the Kricketot I didn’t want to catch, all of my pokémon have natures that hinder their main stats

i’ve been having the same problem! i’ve got an abra with bad speed, a kricketot with bad attack, a geodude with bad attack, a budew with bad sp atk, a buizel with bad attack, an onix with bad defense, a buneary with bad attack… my best pokemon basically all have neutral natures, like, why?? xD

I just picked up a copy of brilliant diamond. i'm considering chimchar...i need to know if monferno learns fighting moves early which might be good against team galactic dark and normal types
It does. Chimchar learns Power-Up Punch a couple levels before evolving and Monferno learns Mach Punch as its evolution move. Rock Smash is good for back up on Chimchar until it learns Power-Up Punch. It will then go right through Roark’s team with ease after a few Punches.

I think I am the only one who doesn't notice the states of the Pokemon nor their natures when catching them ehhe

and perhaps you’re better for it hehe

it’s not like i’m trying to play the game optimally anyway, so i’m not sure why i care. i’m pretty sure most of us didn’t even really think about before the games started explicitly telling us our pokemon aren’t that good xD

Where have u been told that your Pokemon aren't that good? Is it regarding IV?

Ohhh u mean the red and blue arrows in the Pokemon skills page?
exactly. i almost wish you could turn it off if you so choose, for those of us who lack the willpower to live in ignorance. but that's a personal issue i suppose xD

I bought both versions of the new games but began with Brilliant Diamond as I played Diamond first initially. I picked my favorite starter, Turtwig, and also caught a Kricketot to use since I've never beaten the Elite 4 with Kricketune and I want to use a few Pokemon I maybe haven't used as much or at all for this playthrough. I beat Roark easily (and also learned Bug attacks are apparently neutral against Rock types) and grabbed the Manaphy Egg to use as my third team member. I'm currently making my way toward Floaroma Town.

Kricketune Lv14
Manaphy Lv8

re: member
But why there are arrows on only 2 stats? There r 5 o.o
each nature affects stats differently. for example, adamant nature boosts attack and lowers sp attack. hasty boosts speed and lowers defense. i forget exactly how nature affects level to level growth compared to IVs, but suffice it to say you wouldn't want an abra with an adamant nature since he's a powerful sp attacker

does that make sense?

there are also a handful of natures that are completely neutral, as in they don't influence stats at all

Trying to find the pseudo legendary fire dog. I just noticed the level of Pokemon you find underground jump when you beat a gym. Lvl17-20 before 2nd or 3rd gym then it jumps to 27 after next gym.

I found out the hard way regarding that.

Just finished Roark. Had to use several Work Up on Chimchar during the fight. Almost thought Cranidos would beat me.

Also got the Manaphy Egg. You just need to go north in Jubilife to team up with Dawn to beat the Team Galactic Grunts. Afterwards a clown guarding the Jubilife TV Station will leave early. The go to the 2nd floor and talk to the manager with the glasses. Choose the "EVERYONE HAPPY WI FI CONNECTION" and you'll unlock the mystery gift menu early.

My team now is

Monferno
Manaphy
Zubat
Shinx
Bidoof (No Moody ability)
