    Pokemon B2/W2 - What to Masterball?

    Yes, the thread with the title that looks hilarious from the front page is back again, but this time there are "2"s in the title, and a different set of voting options. Something interesting to note is that this game has no roaming pokemon, but seeing as Tornadus/Thundurus wasn't the most popular voting option last time, I doubt that the polls will change much. I apologise for grouping a lot of pokemon together, but seeing as many of them are exactly the same difficulty to catch, I don't think that it makes a difference.

You can get a good measure of their mediocrity up front by how loud they are.

    A shiny that can use Teleport.

    I'd say any awesome wild Shiny honestly.

    Only the Abra, Natu and Ralts families and Baltoy and Deoxys can learn Teleport, so not much use there (unless you really want a Shiny of those).
    Try Selfdestructing Pokemon, much more annoying.

    I have put the poll up. Latios/Latias looks like a worthy choice, because it can pass on its status condition. I have still not entirely made up my mind though.

    Yes, but there is a very slim chance of encountering a shiny, let alone one that has a move that can end the battle easily. You may never end up using that Masterball.

    You never needed them for legendaries in any other pokémon game, much more fun to catch those with dusk balls or ultra balls. save it for when you find a nice shiny you really want.

    Masterballs can be used to speed up the capture, and thus either speed up the process of RNG abusing it, or simply obtain one with a better nature/ivs.

    Don't have a pokemon trained only for catching? like a certain pokemon through breeding that can learn hypnosis w/ false swipe & mean look?


    ^Better to spend time to get one yourself then to waste masterballs

    Interesting. Do you believe that masterballs have little use then?

    You only get so few, so i've learned to live without, i would only use them when i absolutely "need it" (getting pissed from using tons of ultra balls during an encounter....lol)



    Still would be rare to where you would actually need to use a master ball if you find and train pokemon that can be used for only catching

    Nobody seems to be throwing their masterballs at legendaries. Is this because they are too easy to catch, or not worth caring about? Personally, I think that BW2 has a great lineup of pokemon for competitive battling.

    After burning through 200 hyperballs on Lugia at 1% and asleep back in the day I apreciate a masterball soooo much.

    I'd use it on the final legandary to be honest.

    What would you regard as the final legendary? The one on the box, or the last one you catch?

    Wow, alot of legendaries to catch...O.o

    On topic; None, since legendaries are easy enough to catch aslong as you get something like paralyize/sleep.
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
