    And Mewtwo IS the best. Around Nothin's gunna ever take him down.
  • slimjim441 - August 14, 2010 11:25 p.m.

    Oh, duh. I almost forgot Umbreon goes in with Tyranitar and Gengar. Umbreon is a beast.

    @secretsearcher It all depends on those iffy items like Quick Claw and Focus Sash. If they work, they work. But who's to say a Mewtwo couldn't use one and it wouldn't work for him? Based only on his stat. capabilities and moves, Mewtwo wins. Against a Quick Claw, etc., he could get unlucky. And i do use other Pokemanz besides Mewtwo, he's just the best. My standard 'kill-everyone' team consists of: Mewtwo (duh) Scizor/Scyther/Ariados Zapdos Blastoise/Cloyster/Feraligatr Blaziken/Hitmonlee Tyranitar/Gengar I have multiple ones listed because I can never choose which ones I like better.

    You getting lost is why I buy the guides for the pokemon games and book mark them. That way I always know where to go. It is the only series I buy guides for! Oh I still have the first and second movies and some TV shows on VHS! I wish I had a pokemon relationship. Unfortunately I was too young.I like that analogy Chess with 1000 pieces. The seasonal changes is a really cool idea, we have had weather and finally seasons! I did not know that you could crash the DS with two styluses. I guess I will have to be aware of that!Again I still have not opened my Poke-Walker. I don't care to much about the enigma stone. I have Latios and Latias from Sapphire, and the Eon ticket e-reader. The first wi-fi event was actually that shiny Pichu for Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. If you transferred it to Silver and Gold you could get the spiky eared pichu! My fav pokemon as I have said before is Milotic. The most beautiful, powerful and hard to obtain pokemon.

    @slimjim441 I got it. Give Giratina a Focus Sash. That way it will hold on with one HP regardless of whether Mewtwo attacked first, and then Shadow Ball for the Kill. (i know the Focus Sash doesn't work every time either, but it does work more often than the Quick Claw)
  • secretsearcher - August 8, 2010 9:53 p.m.

    @slimjim441 alright fine. Giratina with a Quick Claw and Shadow Ball would do the job if the Quick Claw worked first. i'll admit Mewtwo is strong, but not the best. and you aren't going to change my opinion :) it was fun arguing with you though and btw, do you like any poke'mon OTHER than mewtwo? Because my Umbreon (<------------) is feeling seriously peeved lol
  • pokabu2012 - August 8, 2010 8:52 p.m.

    I like infernape and pokabu well basicly all fire types
  • slimjim441 - August 8, 2010 6:49 a.m.

    @secretsearcher Almost. You're getting close for sure. Arceus does have the highest base stat. average of any Pokemon. BUT, his speed maxed out is only 372, while Mewtwo's max is 394. And if the Spooky Plate does make him a Ghost type, then Psychic will kill him for sure, considering my Mewtwo always carries a Twisted Spoon, boosting Psychic moves by 50% (putting Psychic's Sp. Atk. power from 447 to 670). If for a glitch in the game where Mewtwo didn't kill him on the first turn, Arceus' (Ghost-type) Judgement most likely would kill Mewtwo, but it won't happen. The only way to beat the perfect Mewtwo is with the luck of Quick Claw (and not a two-turn move), but equipping Quick Claw means you can't have the Spooky Plate, meaning you can't do it. I'm actually going to recommend equipping Arceus with the Bug Plate (or whatever it's called) and teaching him X-Scissor. IF you could land it, it would kill him. But then again, if you did that, Mewtwo would know Fire Blast, which as we know would kill you first. He's the best around. Nothin's gunna ever take him him down.

    Sorry but it dosn't seem to like me. I have an image of the newest Pokemon, Gas Cantista!
  • BoltActionRevolver - August 8, 2010 3:36 a.m.

  • secretsearcher - August 8, 2010 1:25 a.m.

    @slimjim441 How about a lvl 100 Arceus with a Spooky Plate (thus making it a Ghost type and immune to Aura Sphere and fairly well protected against Phychic moves) using Judgement (which would also become Ghost type) Sure Mewtwo can learn some Ghost and or Dark type moves, but Arceus has pretty beastly defense stats and i'm pretty sure one hit of a Ghost type Judgement would be enough to throttle Mewtwo Plus a maxed out Arceus can have up to a 375 in the Speed area and if your lv 100 Mewtwo is trained anything less then perfect Arceus will probably out speed him
  • marioman50 - August 7, 2010 6:51 p.m.

    Any particular reason why you guys don't call it "PokeMonday"?
  • davescrazysocks - August 7, 2010 6:05 p.m.

    i'm not going to lie, i love psyduck! i love every bit about this lovable duck pokemon, from its legless webbed feet, to its cute three strands of hair on its head =) i mean, ducks in general are kickass, what with their bread hoarding ways and adorable plodding walk, so imagine a duck with the power to utterly beast giant objects with hidden powers. alas, these powers seem to be exclusivley available when psyduck has a particularly bad headache, so be sure to throw away your aspirin =) as you may of realised, many of these aspects are only applicable in the anime series (of which i am currently eating through the episodes on megavideo). however, it does have some interesting features which make it a suitable companion in any pokemon game. firstly, whereas it regretably isn't a duel type water/psychic, it still has the capability of learning psychic attacks, like confusion and zen headbutt in gen IV. this gives it a little more diversity, providing a good offensive defense to those pesky grass/poisen types. i would say a good move lineup would be water pulse, confusion, hydro pump and either zen headbutt or disable. and to top of the already awsome prowess of psyduck, it evolves into the beasty boy golduck! who, if you remember your pokemon episodes, totally wooped ass aganst team rocket and a blazing fire with it's amazing psychic abilities in "bye bye psyduck" so there, my favourite pokemon of all time is the one and only psyduck, whose head holding mannerism and cry of "psyyyyyyyyy?????" gives my heart a little jump every time i hear it =) I LOVE YOU PSYDUCK!!! <3<3<3

    Farfetch'd He's a cute lil bastard... Spent so much time trying to track him down on Yellow.
  • straight2video - August 7, 2010 1:38 a.m.

    My favourite pokemon is Lugia, but if we're talking regular ones, probably Dragonair. Also, there were a few wifi events before yellow forrest. Darkrai's member card, Oaks letter, pikachu coloured pichu all came out before hg and ss. And they were available for d/p/plt.
  • vlaaa - August 6, 2010 9:09 p.m.

    Vulpix has always had a special place in my heart.
  • sammypip - August 5, 2010 1:22 p.m.

  • Swtchk - August 5, 2010 6:59 a.m.

    My fave pokemon would have to be Gyarados. It can learn a bunch of good moves, and has only a few weaknesses.
