Help me answer a debate we’ve been having: somewhere between Magikarp – which would be beaten to a bloody pulp in minutes – and Mewtwo – who’d turn the very brains of anyone who looked at it wrong into goo before you could say Pokémon GO – there’s a line.Rules are the ‘mon is on an open field, has a moveset with limited PP, can only use non-adjacent special attacks on a single person (i.e. one thundershock, one cardiovascular failure; one earthquake, shattered bodies everywhere) and cannot fly, dig, surf or otherwise run away. The humans have nothing but their bare hands, wit and unfaltering courage in the face of ice beams and fire blasts on their side.This is a fight to the death. What could we take, and how could we do it?Disclaimer:thispostdoesnotcondoneunsolicitedattackand/orabuseofwildPokémon.Treat’emwithloveandcompassion,y’all.
My last post about Johto (my favorite region) was moderately successful and I’m kinda bored so I was wondering what was everyone’s favorite thing about the Hoenn region, which is probably my 2nd favorite. For me it’s gotta be that route (idk the number) between Mauville and Fortree. That is an incredible route. Probably the best in any game. Another favorite of mine is if you go north from rustboro and surf behind meteor falls there is an area with a bunch of different secret base locations. On my emerald version I had that area filled up with secret bases which wasn’t easy because that was before online based. You actually had to mix records with people.Hoenn also probably has the best all around starters.
