• 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.

Well, to put it simply, I love deep sea creatures, aka, creatures of the dark. I would LOVE for there to be a dark type deep sea creature. This is why I love Lanturn, with it being an anglerfish. So yeah, dark types are the best!

My favorite dark-type Pokemon is Houndoom.

Did you know no other Pokemon Besides his pre evolution has the same type combination as he does?

Yea he's pretty boss.


Why do you love dark types?: well, Dark is a very interesting type. it can KO my favourite types (Ghost and Psychic) in an instant; but, at the very same time, can be KOed fairly easily as well. plus, all the Dark type specialists are soooo badass, it isn't even funny. B| so, yep.
Favorite dark type pokemon: Zorua :3
Will you post here often?: maybe... :608:

Why do you love dark types?: I don't love them. But they represent foulness and maliciousness. A great reflection of my personality

To answer a topic of this club, which... I don't know if I can do very good at it...

My favorite dark type moves is Night Slash on Sol, and Foul Play on Zori... they're very deadly moves, because my Pokémon focus on attack; not Sp. Attack. I'm also creating a Mono Dark Type team.

A other topic... If you are creating a mono dark team, what would it consist of?

My team uses two single Dark Types, but also Honcho, Xerphes, Hydrica, and Zeta. Any guesses on who they are?


#1 Lanturn Owner
Well, on your team, I guess Zoroark and Absol for the two monotypes. I also guess Honchkrow and Hydreigon for the other two.
I have also been planning a dark team. Mine consists of Hydreigon, Honchkrow, Bisharp, Drapion, Scrafty, and Zoroark.

On the topic of moves, My favorite is Crunch, with Night Slash a close second. Foul Play, I like, but it does not seem to do as much damage for me, despite having higher base power. I am also mainly an attack user, but on my Hydreigon I use dark pulse.


Metallic Wonder
I have an Umbreon with a nature that reduce Attack. and he have Foul Play and Swagger. That sh!t kills
Foul play is best for weaker pokemon. It's useless on Krookodiles etc.


#1 Lanturn Owner
I see. I suppose I prefer base power attacks to attacks such as Foul Play, that is based on stat differences.
That Umbreon sounds great by the way.


Metallic Wonder
Nah, he sucks compared to Umbreons I have on Platinum. I think he also have Double Team or something.


#1 Lanturn Owner
Well, I am not really into Umbreon. I prefer more straight attacking to using auxiliary moves.

Tyranitar is my favorite pokemon, although it's part dark typing was sooo much fun in grade school, it isn,t t-tars main draw. In grade school, in the days before the internet, my mom bought me the gold and silver guide book, and I was the only kid with it. So basically I was the only one who knew what tyranitar was. At least until people saw Pokemon 4Ever. I loved sicking him on my friend's Alakazam, and them go, what is that thing? Tyranitar is still a boss, mine is still really bulky, and I bred dragon dance onto her. Just for lols.


#1 Lanturn Owner
I like Tyranitar, but I dislike the fact that it has six weaknesses.
I have iv bred/ev trained one, and it has been part of a rather successful doubles sandstorm team. Apart from that, I do not really use it much.


Why do you love dark types?: Because they're as dark as my personality, hehe~
Favorite dark type pokemon: Absol, especially shiny Absol.

Will you post here often?: Depends...
