WAIT. GTS doesn't let you trade eggs over it. Unless you used the negotiation (which is like regular trade).

You can trade eggs over the GTS...? Also, why would you trade for a magikarp when you can buy one for $500 on marvelous bridge? AAAAAND, magikarp can learn flail and tackle, but you can't teach it any TMs or HMs.

 

Someone said earlier that protect is pretty much useless except for getting your foe's PP down, but it's also good to have during double battles, especially if you want to use earthquake or surf and don't want to hurt your own pokemon.

No, you can't. Regular GTS trading tells you yo can't trade eggs. I've tried it.

 

In negotiations however you can. Because negotiations is just like regular trading except you don't need friend codes. (Also tried it)

 

 

demonyero said they got a magikarp EGG. They didn't get a magikarp on purpose.

While we're on the subject of eggs, can you transfer eggs through the Poketransfer or does it have to be fully hatched Pokemon?

That makes a lot of sense. I can just imagine the trolls.

And there are alternatives (such as Levitate and Telepathy) to prevent friendly fire. Plus, that's in the realm of double battles... Protect should be more useful for single battles aswell (especially since it was introduced in Gen 2, before Double battles came about, so it wasn't designed to be only useful in Double battles (like Helping Hand)). As I said earlier, it's just a bit baffling that I can use protect to stop Solarbeam on the second move after it charged, but if I use it on an attack that needs a recharge turn, they skip the recharging. This means if I'm against a mon that's spamming Hyper Beam, I can only defend from it as long as Protect holds up (usually 2-3 times at most), which weakens the startegic value of Protect. For all intents and purposes, the Dragonite I faced DID shoot off a Hyper Beam at me... it just didn't hit. So to me, it'd make more sense to have that Pokemon be weak for a turn, giving me the chance to strike back. It will also weaken the somewhat faithful following that the recharge moves have garnered as a fast-hitting almost assured OHKO.

 

So really, for 1v1, Protect is only good for Toxic, Running out PP, and missing obvious attacks (like Fly or Dig). Beyond that, there's even a move to break through Protect, but because Protect is used so sparingly, that hardly sees use... If you make Protect more useful and pertinent, maybe Feint would see more use as a legitimate move in the metagame...

This. I've never taught my pokemon protect for the reason it is pretty much useless.

....Your pokemon really need some anti-rape gear. If there are any moves that actually entitle rape, it's leech seed. The text definitely implies the action of rape.

 

 

Oh, no doubt. I NEVER teach my pokemon protect outside of the colsseum games. It's basically worthless.

 

 

Getting back on topic, there are A LOT of bridges in Unova. I think my favorite is village bridge.

How often do people show up for GTS Negotiate? First time using it, and it's already boring me. Nothing is happening. I got all terms set to 'any kind' and still nothing picks up.

 

Is it because I lack more data on my Dex?

Don't think so. Here. I'm getting on now. Same settings (I hope). Do we meet?

Still picking up nothing, it's been like this for minutes.

 

I'm guessing this ties up with the Dex as I have not yet seen most of the off regions 'mons yet.

I got some guy named T.J...

 

 

We could do a rendezvous. I want to try that. We'd have to exchange friend codes first I think.

I feel like I cheated on you though for the team I used against you were was my HeartGold team. My Black team are all in their 50s.

 

If you want another rematch, I can do so. Just ask and I'll use my Black team this time.

 

EDIT: You were good though, left me standing with 2 left. Even for a bunch of 70s.

Naw it was fair. I'm proud. Against a team of 70's I didn't do to bad.

No way, this team of mine were caught by me personally. Any high levels I carry are mine and mine alone. It took A LOT of effort in catching them legitimately and training them to where they are. Not hardcore training such as EV training, no. I'm more of a casual player such as yourself only I got a more unique way to express it. cool.gif
