I hated the starters too, infact I hated most of the earlier level pokemon, in gen IV you could get a starly early, I love starly
I did that in HG/SS with a low level Scizor (w/ Bullet Punch/Swords Dance, not even EV'd), trading it as soon as I hit the first town. Needless to say the game ended up very easy.
"The sky's will rain fire." "The oceans will boil." "The streets will run red with the blood of billions only then when your last pitiful hope is extinguished will I end your life lets go."
Way to nitpick on my words you totally understood what I meant!
It was even easier than you <3
Does anyone know how is with trading on emulators? I wanna start with soul silver, but I don't own a ds so I'll have to settle with emulator.
Serperior is pretty amazing with his Dream World ability. If you can get one, that is.
Sceptile is also a pretty amazing sub-seeder.
The sad fact is that starters usually fall to the wayside when it comes to competitive battling.
