I was told if you beat Alder, he'll give you a ticket to Hoenn. I was then told that if you have all three of the dragons(Zekrom, Kyrum, and the other that begins with a R) in your party when you defeat him, you'll get the ticket.
I was also told if you go through the Undella Bay Ruin's maze, at the end you'll find a cross of Palkia, Dialga, and Giratina and a treasure chest. Inside the chest would be the ticket to Hoenn.
Guess how I felt after I had defeated Alder and learned about the Undella Bay Ruins.
I saw a rumor in a Spanish website (which I don't remember) that there will be a new Mystery Dungeon game featuring the 5th Gen. Pokémon, also that there will be the remakes of Ruby & Sapphire, their names would be Terra Ruby & Aqua Sapphire or something like that...
Terra Ruby and Aqua Sapphire? I heard Radiant Ruby and Shimmering Sapphire. Oh well.
But I really hope there's a 5th gen Mystery Dungeon game... I'd buy it. >_>
What you need to remember is not all Pokemon are equal. A team of Pikachu, Butterfree, and Staraptor will always get destroyed versus a team of Heatran, Garchomp, and Dialga. Not all Pokemon are created equal. That's why those in the competitive environment created tiers so that all Pokemon get a chance to shine.
It seems that the mascot of Pokemon is being nerfed to the extreme, losing out to almost anything, with its only up-side being its unpredictability which is still limited by its atrocious defenses and sub-par speed, along with item dependability, especially the base ATK and SPA stats which will at best be a base 110 and 100 respectively, which does not allow it to sweep better than the most generic of generic Lucarios.
Hope in the RSE remakes or 6th gen, they will bump its ATK stats to something like 60 or 65 each, and up 10 speed to make it fast enough to balance out its defenses. Maybe keep Raichu's attacking stats but bump its speed and defenses to compensate, so Pikachu and Raich can actually play out as 2 very different pokemon, with Raichu not underpowered too. This will help Pikachu retain its rightful place as the Mascot of all pokemon forever more!
Oh, and event Surf-chus in 5th Gen pls!
Same goes with Raichu as the light ball should at least affect the entire family.
It's the only way to retain its mascot title before being replaced by Minccino, whose evo does a decent job, or Ferrothorn.
If Light Ball affected Raichu then not only would Raichu be broken, but Pikachu would lose all usability as Raichu outclasses it...everywhere.
The mascot doesn't need to be a good pokemon, it simply needs to be attractive and marketable. It doesn't care nearly as much for how usable it is in-game or competitively. Mincinno could easily sit beside Pikachu when marketing Gen V but Ferrothorn is neither attractive or marketable as it almost seems lifeless compared to Pikachu and Mincinno. And again, nintendo doesn't give a damn about tiers or usability when the mascot is about marketing.
If that were true, then why do EVs, IVs, complicated battle strategies, and the Battle Frontier exist. Seem like they do give a darn about competitive play.
