Since gold and silver I have always believed this is the true purpose of the Master Ball. Using it on a legendary (even one that runs away) is a waste, the Master Ball is the "oh shit a shiny that might kill itself/I might kill" ball.

I usually keep my MB for a legendary I plan to use in fights, to make sure it has good nature/IVs.

Agreed. Especially with so many being stationary, there's really no reason to just save beforehand and keep reseting until you catch it with something other than a MB.

The true use of the master ball is to be hoarded in my inventory i've only ever used them on Mewtwo.

Only legendary I've used a Masterball on was Arceus. I usually just brute force a catch by overwhelming the legendary with levels, and Arceus was just 2HKOing my capturer like he's a Magikarp.

I just can't be assed to load 6 capturer clones or switch to a tank after every time I sleep the guy. In the Masterball you go.

No sense in using it when I can just mash A while browsing GAF though.

Seems people want a Phantasy Star Online Pokemon game, and not a MMORPG.

At least if Pokemon ever tried an MMO / online co-op adventure game, it wouldn't be made using a cookie cutter engine.

But people clamoring for a Pokemon MMO generally have no idea what they're talking about, or asking for.

If they ever do do it, I hope they keep the actual turn-based battle system, with all the trappings. Somehow. I envision the battles being like PBR a little.

Otherwise they can do whatever they want, free-roaming a region in 3D could be amazing. And hopefully it is a previous region, not a new one like those lame GC games.

Just beat Wallace in Ruby, and realized something. My team seems to low leveled

Level 34 Combusken
Level 37 Manetrike
Level 35 Cacturne
Level 35 what ever evolves into Flygon
Level 33 Starmie
and I caught a Gyarados to be my HM Slave.

Like, what? This is the first run I've done where my starter Pokemon hasn't been fully evolved after I have all the badges.

After I finish Ruby (gotta beat the E4 and get the legendaries), I'll probably to go the Johto remakes, then Platinum. I've never actually played Black or White before.

I'm not sure why people are so against a Pokemon MMO considering how perfectly the universe is set up for one and how mindnumbing the single-player can be when released every year.

I think people against it fear it will be something based just on a WOW like formula, and the people that ask for it think this as well. But if it did happen, I think something like Guild Wars might be interesting. Cities would be the hub worlds with all the people interacting and when you headed out into the world, you could just quest with your smaller group of friends. But this sort of interaction, like co-op world exploration, could be accomplished in a main line series title, if they were not afraid of opening up online options (especially interaction with randoms).

Really enjoying black so far. I played through the intro sequence and got to the point where the adventure begins. It has a lot more life than any of the other games. The first battle in the bedroom and Bianca's parents and stuff, it has a lot of personality.

I also watched the first episode of the anime. Holy shit that zebra's voice had me rolling. Soooooo stupid sounding, it was great. This is gonna be a fun few months.



Also.... Uh... The female avatar on the battle screen has a lil' Pokébooty. Anyone else notice that? lol. Those cutoff shorts are a little too sexy.

Elektrike and Mightyena. Those three should be able to sweep through the main story.

One early pick that I can think of is Wingull/Pelipper, who will be useful for the Norman fight (cheese Protect against Slaking), and will be a good partner vs. Tate n' Liza.

An electric type...Electrike is alright, available before Mauville, I wouldn't take Plusle/Minun, gimmicks.. Although I like Lanturn more, but if you want to wait until getting him, then choose Taillow/Swellow as your Flyer instead of Pelipper, for variety's sake.

Tate n' Liza have Light Screen and Sunny Day, so I don't think he'd do that well.

I would suggest a Dark Pokemon.

I forgot about SD, but I don't even remember even having a problem with T+L. More problematic for me were Winona/Altaria.

But I'd still go with Pelipper as a team member. However, I'll think of a party now...

Blaziken
Pelipper/Swellow
Mightyena
Manectric/Lanturn
Breloom
Medicham

Although, I'd have to look into what I used in that game, gimme a bit.

Probably not; they didn't hint at anything last week.

Coro Coro may well have leaked by this time next week, so you don't have to wait too long.

Considering that there would be very little changes in mechanics and gameplay it would probably be better to hide it.

Yeah I'm replaying all the GBA games in anticipation. Makes me realize how good gen 3 really was. I don't really think it's the worst because it's bad, rather, the other generations are just better if that makes any sense :P
Hoenn has some pretty good music though.
