    I was all like "OMG, I CAN GET A GENGAR!". Then the game was all No! The damn Haunter had an Everstone on it, and girl goes "Haha! Did my Haunter turn into something? Just kiddin."

    Hate that lil' girl.
    Why do people get so pissed about this? You can catch as many fucking wild Gengar as you want in Gen 4.

    Pokemon thread is about to be pushed to page 2, we can't have that!

    Do you guys feel like gen 5 Elite Four was harder than usual? Normally I stroll right in there and win but I'm have trouble just beating the first member. I've gone back and basically scrapped all but two on my team so I had better type coverage.

    Right now I've got

    Darmanitan
    Jellicent
    Mamoswine
    Deino (This thing is a pain to level, is this like the gen 5 version of Magikarp?)
    Rufflet
    Virizion

    People who didn't make the cut are :
    Simipour (fighting equivalent of a 5 year old girl)
    Serperior (giant puss who doesn't do anything)
    Unfezant (wtb Staraptor plz)
    Reuniclus (30 speed..)
    Chandelure (Darmanitan is already a rape machine and I have Jellicent so I figured I didn't need another Fire or Ghost type)
    Golurk (I wanted to use him I just didn't have enough room)

    Chespin as Grass/Dark would have 7 weaknesses (if Fairy>Dark goes through) - Ice, Fire, Fight, Bugx4, Flying, Fairy.
    This makes Chespin a VERY weak Pokemon to use, eventhough it has Psychic immunity.

    I thought the GenV E4 were the easiest in a while. So many shared weaknesses. I beat all but Marshal with a Scrafty.

    the hardest gen? hmm maybe gen 3..but then they made that water gym dude the last guy and was faceroll. I haven't found a single elite four that was actually hard. they should have typing specialists it just makes it easier.

    Gen V seems difficult because they actually use good pokemon.

    Yeah, that too. Especially in challenge mode when they use items as well.

    challenge mode seemed a bit too easy. I vividly remember doing it with a skitty and an espeon that 1st time through. both at the end managed to get like lv 92..my skitty rocked the league with her cuteness cut throat attitude and normalize.

    So you do a solo run and complain about being overleveled and it being too easy? Guess what, that's what happens if you only use 1 or 2 pokemon.

    Well, that just killed my interest in this gen.

    Seriously though, what's going on there? It appears to be 5v1, which opens up quite a few questions. Is the reason the trainer is only using one pokemon because the others are already fainted, or are we actually expected to beat 5 with 1? Or are they setting it up kind of like WoW's pet battles, where only 1 is active (or maybe 3, hard to tell with the pic), but you can see other pets waiting their turn in the background or something?

    It's a horde battle, I'm not 100% sure but I think when you go into the grass, wild pokemon battles have a chance of being a horde battle. Horde battles are 5v1. Not too sure about the mechanics either, but I think that for example rock slide can hit all 5 at the same time.
    Not too sure if all 5 enemies will attack at the same turn though.
