Do you think it's fair for starters to be in the Battle Frontier (Opponents)?

    Gallade20772 GAME OVER.

    I was in the Battle Castle and I had a 70 win-streak with my Empoleon... then came...Torterra. It used 1 Leaf Storm and I was pwned. "NOOOOOOOO!" I screamed at my DS... Then threw it across the room. It almost broke... Post what you think about opponents having starters in the Battle Frontier (Platinum only...). Make sure you post in the poll first though.

    I think it is okay for people in the game to have starters. Everyone has to start with a pokemon. So maybe that was his/her starter and he always has it in battles. Sorry to hear about breaking your streak.

    I think its alright to have startrs in the Battle Frontier, just like any other pokemon, you'll beat em next time!

    Theirs not much of a problem. But yeah I usually get beaten by someone if they have a starter and I get so angry.

    Starters aren't that much better than normal Pokemon. so I can't see how it's unfair for them to be there.

    Starters aren't THAT strong, still my Battle Tower streak loss was worse. A Miltank pwned my entire team, didn't know that it was Scrappy and it Body Slammed it's way to Victory.
    BTW, the trainer was a rich boy and he said: "Don't even think you are going to win"
    I started to think that he paid for that match :p

    Of course they're fair - and you should prepare for them just like you would any other pokemon. If the likes of Latias and Suicune are allowed, then starters should definitely be included.

    you're complaining that their starter KTFO'd your starter? oh man...

    Pkmn Breeder Jack Static owns you.

    Um, yeah, they aren't THAT strong. You just have to be prepared.
  15. Gallade20772

    Gallade20772 GAME OVER.

    Well, it goes to show I had A LV100 CHARIZARD!!!!!!!
  16. ^ This. If you're allowed to have a starter, why shouldn't they?

    Sure, I don't see why not.

    Starter Pokemon may be strong, but apparently they're not unbeatable because you were using one!

    I think they are obviously fair. They all have specific strengths and weaknesses. Human players shouldn't be prohibited from using their starters, and neither should the opponents; the same rules should apply to both.
  19. Dehydrated

    Dehydrated Too cool for you

    Yeah, everyone has a starter. They should be able to use their starter right?
  20. Staryu

    Staryu I know, I know..

    Of course it's fair xD. At that high of a win streak, you could have been taken out by any strong grass attack.
