[spirit pokemon] feebas

(no subject)

A friend and I were chatting about his Wonder Guard Spiritomb, and about abilities that could screw with it. Scrappy and Mold Breaker were obvious, but I mentioned No Guard because I'd had issues with No Guard and Ghost-types before, and he wasn't sure if it worked that way, and I didn't have a No Guard poke on Black version to test.

Does No Guard allow Fighting/Normal attacks to hit Ghost-types?

Just a reminder; second of the Legendary Dogs of Johto givaway is going on at American Gamestop locations (Raikou ended Sunday, sorry for not reminding everybody)!

ETA: Egg on my face! The Entei giveaway starts on January 17th, not back-to-back as I thought! My bad!

Who here's planning to get Black/White? What starter are you thinking of using, and why?

Pokemon Pearl Help!

I have never played a Pokemon game before this one, so needless to say I'm still a newbie. :) I'd like to think I've done well so far -- I'm at the Elite Four and so far have beaten every trainer/gym leader before this with ease. I can beat the first three Elite Four no problem, but I simply CAN'T beat the fourth. I know he's supposed to be challenging, but I'm just not sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm also aware that there's a Champion battle afterward, and I don't think I'm prepared for that, either.

Is there some sort of strategy I should be focusing on? My friend told me that she stuck with one Pokemon and used that the whole time -- so beating the Elite was easy because her ONE Pokemon was a much higher level than any of their Pokemon. I tried doing this with my Gengar, but he's only like level 60 and I'm still struggling. Now I feel like I'm stuck because my other Pokemon are in the 40's and so they're nowhere NEAR being able to fight.

So I guess my question is... Am I beyond hope? How do I fix this? Do I just keep leveling my Gengar by fighting the Elite over and over again? Or what? I have no idea what to do. @_@

Hey all,

I was wondering. I check in on the community a lot but not much happens. Is there anything you'd like to see planned for this community or any guides you'd like to see?

The things I was thinking of doing...

-A guide about Super Contests, condensing all the contest movesets scattered about the site into one large guide database entry.
-A guide about Pokeathlons.
-A Sinnoh/Johto Battle Frontier Guide similar to the Kanto/Hoenn Battle Frontier Guide that seems to be the most popular of all the written guides.
-Updating the TM guide with the location of all the TMs from Gen III-Gen IV, and adding the locations of all move tutors.

Cross-promotional thing with pimp_my_team perhaps. Themed tournaments or something. Or it could just stay as a sort of non-social Q&A comm like it has seemingly become.

I dunno, ideas, suggestions, gripes, etc...?

Profhydron's Pokemon of the Day: Clefable

With the much anticipated release of HeartGold/Soulsilver in the new year, I'm reminiscing about the events and pokemon that made that generation so much fun. So I turned to Monday nights at Mt. Moon where the Clefairy Dance took place. Clefable, Clefairy's evolution is such an interesting pokemon, since the early days it's had a wide movepool and you never really know what you're going to get from it until it uses a move. Things have only gotten better for it over the years and now in Gen IV, it received a wonderful gift in it's exclusive ability: Magic Guard.

Now it can use Toxic Orb/Facade without the Poison damage, abuse lack of Life Orb recoil damage, and though it suffers ATK loss from BRN (it doesn't lose any HP though!) and SPD loss from PRZ (it can't ever be fully paralyzed!), it's become quite a force. After reviewing Smogon's list (Serebii hasn't covered it yet for Gen IV). One cornerstone move has always been Softboiled, but it's always used to keep Clefable alive in Singles. Though I understand the hesitance to leave a pokemon on the field with no actual attacks, Clefable's support movepool should more than enough to bolster it's teammate both offensively and defensively.

Gameboy Advance Link Cable?....(Part Two)!!! D8>

ok guys :( for those of you that know, i went to gamestop yesterday to pick up that Gamboy Advance to Gameboy Advance link cable. First post here---> http://community.livejournal.com/pokemon/3136073.html. And well now i'm upset/sad beyond all reason..i tried trading between my Emerald and FireRed yesterday and all i got was the assistants saying: "Please Wait......Cancel: B" for basically EVER :(

here is a picture of what the cable looks like:Collapse )

what am i doing wrong?
i've already setup trade abilities with Hoenn in FireRed, is it because i haven't beaten the game yet in Emerald that i can't trade? i have yet to go beat the E4.

Or can this be because the package on the cable said GBA-GBA ONLY? (i'm using GBA SP's)
and it IS a Nintendo product i know that for certain.
