I can't find my copy of Soulsilver :[ Are the White/Black versions any good? It seems like there's a lot of weird pokemon in this version. Also: It seems like when I hit the Final Four my pokemon aren't high level enough, so how do you guys level them up once you've beaten all the gyms? Do you just go random battle grinding?

Now watch as they butcher it with the english dub. :v:

[QUOTE=SeymourGuado;34936060]"best games so far" *Pokemon related Opinions picture here* Seriously though I like Pokemon Black/White but I wouldn't call them the best.[/QUOTE] It's a matter of favorite, rather than best. "Best" would definitely be the latest one, in terms of gameplay mechanics, because things are balanced and tweaked. In terms of the game itself, though, it's favorite. My favorite was Ruby/Sapphire. Just seemed to be the best, to me.
I'd say my favorites are Gold/Silver and Ruby/Sapphire.
[QUOTE=AnalAnnihilator;34936195]I'd say my favorites are Gold/Silver and Ruby/Sapphire.[/QUOTE] R/B/Y and Crystal for me. I still own my GBC and Yellow and Crystal :D Though I don't mind 3rd gen either. It's kinda nice. If I had batteries i'd go see where I'm at in my Crystal game. I'd also take a picture of my first shiny ever.
Gold and Ruby were the games I played the most. Those two games made up a good bit of my childhood.
as far as overall mechanics and gameplay go passing up black or white would be just sadistic gen 1 - broken gen 2 - not as broken gen 3 - almost there gen 4 - SLOW RIDE TAKE IT EEESAY gen 5 - fix'd
[QUOTE=Wingedwizard;34933602]Post team[/QUOTE] Forretress - Rocky Helmet Spikes Stealth Rock Rapid Spin volt Switch Nidoking - Life Orb Earth Power Fire Blast Blizzard Thunder Gengar - Focus Sash Hypnosis Focus Blast Shadow Ball Destiny Bond Dusclops - Eviolite Pain Split Will-o-Wisp Gravity Curse Sigilyph - Flame Orb Gravity Roost Psychic Psycho Shift Dugtrio - Focus Sash Earthquake Sucker Punch Stone Edge Aerial Ace Gengar and Dugtrio aren't pulling their weight at all. Nidoking and dusclops are MVPs atm. Sigilyph is powerful but he doesn't function in tandem with the team. Forretress is useful as gravity makes spikes hurt any pokemon and as a rapid spinner to prevent spikes fucking me over in my own gravity. I'd like a third gravity user but there's no real good ones you can train in gen5. Basically I'm building this team in PO and then constructing it in my black game, but some pokemon aren't possible. For example I would LOVE gravity on starmie but starmie only learns it in gen4.

[B]the problem with Johto is that the wild pokemon are hideously underleveled, so you'll have to grind quite a bit[/B][/QUOTE] Everything that wasn't your own Pokemon was underleveled in HG/SS up until you fight Red. Then again, I always focus mostly on training the shit out of my starter Pokemon and any legendaries I pick up on the way, so that probably made it easier.
[QUOTE=Empty_Shadow;34936451]For example I would LOVE gravity on starmie but starmie only learns it in gen4.[/QUOTE] I always see people say "but it only learns [a move] in [a previous generation]." Why not breed it in that generation and transfer it forward? Is there some hidden factor keeping you from breeding in a previous gen and transferring forward? Or do people not like the double EXP gain?

It's basically doubling the amount of breeding I have to do.

It's basically doubling the amount of breeding I have to do.[/QUOTE] How does it double the breeding? You'd do all your breeding (and probably raising, after looking at Starmie's Gen IV info) in Gen IV, then transfer. Just an extra, what, two steps? Go to gen IV -> breed -> transfer, rather than just "breed".
I have to go into pearl, do all the shit I've done to get where I am in gen5 all over again, then start breeding. I have to go out, catch a butt ton of dittoes, beat the game so I can grind the elite four for xp and cash, get everstones, power weights etc for passing down ivs, actually FIND wild pokemon with maxed IVs to chain breed, just so I can have a starmie that's usable. It takes ages to breed a pokemon on black and I have a butt ton of pokemon with max IVs already that I can use. In the case of starmie I have to find a ditto with maximum speed and special attack. Or alternatively wait until I get a random egg with maximum stats. Also in gen4 you can't directly check if you have a maxed IV.

I only started breeding fo reelz in gen5, and my pearl cartridge's memory is broken and it refused to hold a savegame. On top of the aforementioned issues.
One thing I hate about transferring your Pokemon from Generation 4 -> Generation 5 You need two DS's.
Guys, I'm participating in a pokemon tournament, I want my team to be this: Krookodile Samurott Haxorus Braviary Mienshao and Eelektross. Could someone recommend me a good moveset for them?

Samurott, Swords Dance, Aqua Jet, MEGAHOOOOORN, and whatever else you feel like, Waterfall might work, Return too. Might be able to replace Aqua Jet with Waterfall if you don't think speed will be a problem. For the Hax, Earthquake, Dragon Dance, Brick Break, Dragon Claw/Outrage. Always. Mienshao? Hi Jump Kick (ALWAYS), U-Turn, Stone Edge, Hidden Power Ice. Make sure it has regenerator and slap a choice item on it. Krook and Eelektross I don't have much experience with, sorry.
I can't decide if I want to play Heart Gold or Red. Red for nostalgia, and heart gold for fun.

Heart Gold is pretty nostalgic if you've grown up with the second generation of games. =/
