list anything about pokemon here. ideas, tips, favorite/least favorite pokemon. only these three.

u can talk as much as u like.

ex. I like dewott (from pokemon b/w) because:

1. dewott looks awesome. you know ninja pose.

2. for one thing water has 2 weaknesses better resistance against the other 2.

3. I like pokemon with two feet and two arms.

tip: here is a good reason not to get snivy:

yes, his/her looks are cool. But his type is grass type and grass type has FIVE weaknesses. many pokemon masters are fooled getting him by his look but here is my tip: aim for the strongest NOT the pokemon with cool looks. the best pokemon may be ugly but they could be strong too.

Nobody chooses grass types for their starters anyways... Throughout the generations, they are useless.

-.-"

I like the grass types for most of them. Bulbasaur, Chikorita, Treecko and Turtwig are some of my favorites. They're not useless by any means.

Pokemon Black/White killed what interest I had in Pokemon though. With the overdone animations, same old plot line/battle layout/level cap and annoying features such as zoom in/out on building entry exit, I lost interest before the 2nd gym.

Snivy is probably the best bet for picking a starter in White/Black. You can't say that it sucks just because it has 5 weaknesses. If it has five weaknesses and put counters. For example, Grass is weak against fire so you'll have a water type to back it up.

if you like snivy then just like him mostly for looks not too much for combat.

another tip: try not to switch pokemon unless you have a good reason.
because if you switch to a better pokemon... well you might not expect it to faint in 1 hit because its not easy to predict a move.

It's never about the weaknesses... Heck, you know Abomasnow? He has like SEVEN weaknesses. (Being an ice/grass type) but still, people use him for his abilities and his stats.

Its because most starters for grass types have generally weak and average stats.

The only thing that I can think that is useful about grass starters in combat is their access to status moves like Leech Seed and Stun Spore.

The only good Grass type starter I would say is Sceptile, as he makes a decent sweeper with high speed and good special attack. But why choose Sceptile while you can choose Blaziken, which is much better?

Thats true if you were to play Pokemon on a casual basis. However, if you were to play competitively or play the Battle subway/Battle frontier/Battle tower using these Pokemon, you might have a bad time.

Anyways, I learnt my mistake when playing Pokemon yellow, when I only trained my Clefable (My favorite pokemon that time) to lvl 70+ while my other pokemon remained weak. And then, I was stuck on the Elite 4.

Bulbasaur..then for fire pokemon, arcanine. Boom

2. for one thing water has 2 weaknesses better resistance against the other 2.


This confuses me...it seems like you were going to say much more...then you just abruptly end it. As for why to not get water...in my opinion...I'd much rather have either Gyrados or Wailord

Pokemon Black/White killed what interest I had in Pokemon though.


^This

In the earlier games, the focus was on the Pokemon themselves, the story, the ambiance of the game, smoothness of the game, all that jazz

In the later games (platinum/diamond/pearl onward) the focus has been the look of the game...is this flashy enough? Does this look cool? Did we cram enough crap in this town? etc

I disagree. Serperior has good special defense, speed and defense. And if you use the coil strategy. It can be deadly.
