    I just arrived at the third island, haven't really done anything yet except publicly humiliate Hau again (you've got a lotta ass challenging me in the rain with your Brionne). Everyone's level 30-31.

    protip: you can find free Shell Bells when fishing. I pulled in like 3-4 when looking for a worthy Feebas. Healing every time you hit stuff is nice.

    I am literally at Royal Avenue now. Gunna work on that and get back to hunting Eevee.

    Yeah I got myself some Shell Bells. I haven’t used one yet though.

    I caught a Feebas randomly and would love to have a female one for Milotic but it’s pain to look for one. (I got a male one instead.)

    Can I re-add your FC? Mine’s new.

    Just finished the Ghost Trial in Ula Ula

    Primarina Lv 40 - Sparkling Aria, Hyper Voice, Icy Wind (until I find Ice Beam), Psychic
    Noibat Lv 40 (oh sweet Jesus evolve) Pyschic, Air Cutter, Tailwind, Roost.
    Jolteon Lv 40 - Discharge (until I find Thunderbolt), Signal Beam, Shadow Ball, Thunder Wave
    Lopunny Lv 40 - Return, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, and Work Up (thinking about replacing Return with Thunderpunch so she's...punchy).
    Marowak (Alolan) Lv 40 - Fire Punch, Bonemerang, Stealth Rock, False Swipe (going to replace this with Shadow Bone as soon as I can find the Move Remember...person

    Going to fill out the last slot with Lucario. When I get there.


    Any particular Trials anyone is struggling with so far? I think the Water and Grass was much harder here.

    I hate gen 7 starters so I sent over a team of shit breed rejects at level 1 to piece together a really cool team. Anyone just beat electric trial.

    Feraligater 36 Sheer Force. Waterfall, Dragon Dance, Ice Punch, Crunch.
    Lairon 34 Sturdy Rock Slide, Toxic, Iron Head, Earthquake
    Houndoom 34 Early Bird Flamethrower, Dark Pulse, Nasty Plot, Sludgebomb
    Staraptor 36 Reckless Close Combat, Aerial Ace, Double Edge, U-turn
    Jolteon 35 volt bsorb twave, thunderbolt, shadowball, volt switch.
    Gardevoir 35 trace thunderbolt, psychic, dazzling gleam, calm mind

    I thought having good mons with correct natures and abilities and decent moves would make it super easy. trials are still pretty challenging. and yes I picked poplio so I was still using water starter. My rival hates me

    haven't really had a tough time with any trials so far. Electric was especially comical - I wasn't looking forward to it as a type, but I coincidentally had a pretty perfect start.

    I'd put Oricorio in front, since its only not-shitty attack was Air Cutter and that splits its damage across both targets once the totem calls in help (and I figured it'd do decent damage if the totem was still Vikavolt). My initial reaction when the fight started was "oh perfect I'll do like no damage lol" - but I didn't take much, either. Especially since all the totem's attacks were physical and I started using Feather Dance. So once I dropped both enemies' attack stats to the minimum, I swapped in some offense and rolled right over 'em. Not a very fast victory, but clean.

    updated team, after just finishing the ghost trial. Level 36 all around:

  • Lopunny (Cute Charm) - Return, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Jump Kick
  • Oricorio [electric] (Dancer) - Air Slash, Icy Wind, Feather Dance, Roost
  • Milotic (Competitive) - Water Pulse, Icy Wind, Hidden Power (Ground), Recover
  • Mawile (Intimidate) - Iron Head, Crunch, Brick Break, Rock Tomb
  • Ribombee (Shield Dust) - Bug Buzz, Dazzing Gleam, Psychic, Stun Spore
  • Tsareena (Queenly Majesty) - Trop Kick, Low Sweep, Zen Headbutt, Stomp

    those beach move tutors are a blessing - Mawile finally got a STAB attack, and--even more importantly--Oricorio got a second attack that isn't shit! Pound and Double Slap would be garbage even if mine wasn't Modest. Really looking forward to that level 40 payoff (which is way too late, bad game design imo).

    So, I got my Sylveon and I’m training her at the moment. My team looks like this at the moment:

  • Incineroar: 36 - Bite, Flame Charge, Fire Fang, Darkest Lariat
  • Malamar: 36 - Tackle, Pluck, Psywave, Psybeam
  • Lycanroc (Dusk form): 27 - Rock Tomb, Bite, Fire Fang, Rock Throw
  • Sylveon: 19 - Tackle, Fairy Wind, Quick Attack, Swift

    I’m still looking for a female Feebas and then I want a Vulpix. I plan on getting Riolu for my team when I get there and switch out Lycanroc

    I’m at the final trial with Olivia.

    fought her last night; she was a higher level than I expected and I almost regretted turning off the Exp Share (which I flip on and off every so often to make sure things don't get stupid-easy) because her entire team was several levels above mine. Which led to at least one unexpected KO when her Lilligant turned out to be faster than my Oricorio.

    unfortunately for her, my team is both stronger and more beautiful than hers

    she even lost a 1v1 Lopunny duel

    I’m at the final island, creating a new team because Lusamine was a bitch.

    She was about to wipe my team with her Beware. Sent out Jolteon (his Defense was garbage).

    Boys and girls, use Pokemon Refresh because my Jolteon survived a Dual Chop and held at 1 HP on both hits due to me maxing his affection. It then paralyzes the Beware for three turns in a row revived 3 teamates to heal my Jolteon and take it out along with the rest of the team (I think it was one or two pokes).

    well I mean...she totally ripped off my theme

    [conquering the hoenn league in STYLE] recaps my Omega Ruby beauty squad (Gardevoir, Mawile, Flygon, Milotic, Ninetales, Froslass)

    in Moon I kinda did what I felt like because exciting new generation full of new things, but this time I'm showing her how it's done.



    I am the lovely princess of Alola, bitch, so step. off.

    I restarted the game with Rowlet (so much better), and then I got myself Growlithe (F), and a Staryu (F). I'm at the fire trial. I need to train my Staryu since I just got it. She's my special attacker. I was going to train a Feebas (but having to trade her over is a pain) and a Seel but she doesn't learn Water moves early on. I don't think Milotic does either. I'm getting a Alolan Ninetails on my team for that Ice and Fairy.

    Pokémon stories are usually weak so I didn't mind restarting.

    Posted December 5th, 2017 by Castrael
    Castrael

    when you evolve Feebas into a Milotic, it learns Water Pulse immediately. You just need to be able to trade to evolve it (and you need a Prism Scale for it to hold, which you can get as soon as you get Lapras Surf).

    also I looked up Seel out of curiosity and yeah, it actually goes a really long time without a water attack...which is pretty dumb. But if you use the BP move tutors on the second and third islands, you can teach it Water Pulse or Aqua Tail.

    So, I’m finally back on Poni Island and my current team is:

    Ninetails took a while to train because I had bred it. I’m thinking of getting a Goliospod maybe? I need a poison and flying, fighting type moves. :/

    Ninetails (52)
    Decidueye (54)
    Arcanine (54)
    Starmie (52)

    Just breeded a Mareanie. Gunna have a Toxapex on my team as my defender.

    I’m at the post game stuff now. I just beat the Elite Four. Finally. I ditched Toxapex and my final team was

    Ninetails: 68
    Decidueye: 68
    Starmie: 67
    Arcanine: 68

    I think my levels are right.

    I've finally picked this game up. Having just completed an OmegaRuby Wonderlocke, I found it not much of a challenge due to the boosted experience...but I still want a shot at a more unique team, so I'm doing a WonderWedlocke. Mixed results so far (as is fairly typical, Wonder Trade comes with a lot of early-game mons), but here's the squad:

    Flaaffy level 18
    Inkay level 20

    Servine level 20
    Shellder level 26

    Cutiefly level 20
    Trumbeak level 21

    Just starting Lana's trial. Shellder doesn't have any moves that work well against Water-types, but Inkay and Flaaffy are a little underpowered, so I'm not certain which team I'll go with for the Totem Pokemon.

    So far, I'm finding the game to have a reasonable amount of difference between this one and the originals--as PN said, similar to the differences between, say, Emerald and Ruby/Sapphire. I was hesitant to pick this up because I wasn't sure the differences would be worthwhile, but so far I'm satisfied. I still hate the Rotom Dex (and they may have actually made it more annoying), but at least they seem to have toned down the SOS mechanic, which is very nice.

    yeah, this was a big thing. Unless you use an Adrenaline Orb, only one successful SOS call can happen in an encounter.



    stalled for a bit because IRL issues, but finally wrapped up the League the other night. Party was level 60 all around and it went pretty easily. Fittingly for a beauty team, Milotic was probably MVP because she takes hits and the computer isn't smart enough to avoid triggering her Competitive ability (lower any stat and it sharply boosts her special attack, so Intimidate users in particular are a wonderful opponent).



    started doing the postgame stuff, which I'm quite curious to see. The Ultra Beast mission was the same ol' shit as last time, but the second quest-y thing was an interesting surprise (although it ended way too soon, wtf).

    Thank goodness. I still have nightmares about the stream of never-ending Oricorios I faced while trying to catch one in my first playthrough. I still find the mechanic irritating (I'd prefer if it would just be turned completely off without the Adrenaline Orb), but it's at least manageable now.

    I lost Flaaffy and Inkay to the Totem Pokemon (minor SPOILERS follow)--the switch to an Araquanid made it a bit tougher, I think? At least the Bug-typing was pretty good against my team. So now I'm rocking with a Frogadier and Makuhita as my last pair. I used a Hariyama in my first playthrough and I think it survived the whole way (I enjoyed using Z-Bulk Up on it as an alternative to the usual overpowered Z-moves), so we'll see how long this one lasts.

    I know I'm way too late to this thread, but I'll participate (talk to myself) anyway!
    New rule: if you nicknamed your mons, you must include them with your team. I have been at my GF's parents this week, and haven't had much play time, but here are my three after Mantine surfing for the first time (I can add movesets later):

    Solemn Oaf (Relicanth, male)
    Scrimp Sake (Scyther, female)
    SkeletonTree (Bonsly, female)

    never too late, especially since I'm still playing it :J

    you have future plans for your team, or are you just gonna see what's around and decide when the time comes?

    I was delaying this post to make a big ol' endgame wrapup type thing, but something happened and I've decided to hold off on that aspect. But I did finish the Episode RR postgame scenario, so I have some thoughts on that:


    the non-spoilery quick take: I liked it, way better than the postgame Ultra Beast hunting in Sun/Moon.



    @white lancer:

    lol, that fight was a real shitshow. My team was only at about 51-53 so my situation was pretty close to yours (minus the self-imposed challenge rules, of course, just the ones I always use as personal preference).



    Edited January 1st by Pirate_Ninja
    Pirate_Ninja

    Yeah, I agree, P_N. I've mostly enjoyed the difficulty in this game--the Totems being 2 vs. 1 and having a stat boost really made each one a reasonable challenge, assuming you didn't have a hard counter to them (and even then, the support mons or their movesets often gave them some play in bad matchups). I had some serious trouble with the Water and Fire ones based off my challenge rules, and the Ghost and Dragon ones were a little tricky as well. And the important trainers and even the trainers that asked you to defeat every other trainer on the route had good movepools and I'm assuming some good EV/IVs as well. But that boss was over-the-top and I have a hard time seeing how you beat it outside of being way overleveled or using some sort of cheesy tactics (as I did). Particularly since it had great type-coverage and apparently a nature that boosts the power of its super-effective moves, since every mon I wound up with was weak to one of its moves!

    Anyway, I pressed forward and completed the E4 last night (and I have to point out that the Champ's final Pokemon was the only one that reached the level of the Big Bad in the main game)...will probably move forward in the postgame soon. My final team:

    Blaziken//Magnezone (got screwed by the Wedlocke rules in the E4, as both got demolished by Dugtrio in the very first fight I took on)
    Primarina//Golisopod (saw barely any action in the E4, but did take down one member)
    Gyarados//Machoke (basically swept the rest with either Dragon Dance or Bulk Up; wasn't too bad not having Machamp because of the Eviolite)

    Anyway, I think this game, much like Sun and Moon, was a bit of a mixed bag for me. Once again, too many cutscenes, and certain mechanics continued to drive me crazy. The storyline was also a bit more muddled than the last IMO, and certain parts make less sense thanks to the splicing of the new plot with the old. But man, were there some cool things here. As much as I complain about the that boss fight, the cutscene immediately preceding it was incredible, and the fight music was amazing as well. There's a lot of cool visual stuff here, like in the original versions, and I like a lot of the side stuff. Mantine surfing was a fun diversion, though I'd probably get bored of it if I did it too much, and I really appreciated the easy access to move tutors.

    For the most part, I'm just gonna let my team come together this time. I played SM twice, both times with most if not all of my team planned out from looking at th me new batch, so this time I'm just playing. Recently added a Parasect (Pairasteve) which is a species I haven't used since RBY. Only planned thing might be Marshadow. It would be the first legend I used since RSE, but I really like it so...
