Three RBY LC matches (Me VS Dexter)


marcoasd: Yeah, I think the standard moveset is fine for the Tauros ditto. About the burn, do CHs ignore the burn O_O ? Jul 28, 2014 23:54:12 GMT -8
Isa: CHs and burns are incredibly weird in GSC and I expect nothing less from them in RBY...IIRC, burns actually affect CHs, but I could be wrong. Jul 29, 2014 0:57:58 GMT -8
Isa: I remember a bug when burn would cut Explosion's base power by 75% instead of 50%. Brutal. Jul 29, 2014 3:23:28 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: UPC and Bulbapedia both say CHs ignore burn. Jul 29, 2014 4:05:50 GMT -8
Agent Syrup "The Destroyer!": Pokemon Online finally gave gen 1 some attention! Lets see what they fixed! Jul 29, 2014 9:38:45 GMT -8
marcoasd: Gotta take the cartridge again at some point. I need to find a pokè with Fire Blast, though XD Jul 29, 2014 9:52:26 GMT -8
Isa: Fire Blast is only learnable through TM in RBY, so you'd have to use Fire Blast from Golem or so on an Aerodactyl and wait for it to crit. :( Jul 30, 2014 9:24:27 GMT -8
marcoasd: Yeah, maybe I'll tell you when I'll make pokès for lower tiers (like Charizard or Arcanine). Atm I'm on Kingler, I have collected almost all the possible OU movesets. Actually Fire Blast Golem makes some sense, but I'd use Substitute>FB Jul 30, 2014 11:59:16 GMT -8 *
magic9mushroom: Fire Blast Golem is better in GSC than it is in RBY. Fire Blast only hits Egg slightly harder than Rock Slide (~9% harder) and is less accurate. Also the second-most-common switch-in to Golem is named Starmie. Jul 30, 2014 19:05:17 GMT -8
jorgen: 9 percentage points is actually a pretty substantial damage difference. Jul 30, 2014 21:24:09 GMT -8
jorgen: But now I realize it was hard percent and not percentage points. Jul 30, 2014 21:25:50 GMT -8
jorgen: Regardless, the burn threat is pretty annoying for Egg to deal with, but then again, he struggles hard enough against Rocks when paralyzed. Jul 30, 2014 21:27:00 GMT -8
Isa: The only reason I used Fire Blast Golem as an example was because I didn't want him to kill his opponents. I intentionally mentioned a weak user of it. ;p Jul 30, 2014 23:01:46 GMT -8
marcoasd: Burning Gengar will be the best bet. Jul 30, 2014 23:48:51 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: I was talking to who said it was decent. (Fire Blast Golem is great in GSC though. Egg's heavy SpD nerf means it's 3HKOed, and Skarmory is very sad also.) Jul 31, 2014 0:18:30 GMT -8
Isa: Going to Austria for a wedding now. See you on Sunday Jul 31, 2014 1:35:22 GMT -8
marcoasd: It's decent enough to see some play, while RS and Sub both have more merits. Basically, a gimmick, but I have every possible moveset for RBY in my main cartridge. See you Isa, maybe I'll have the answer by Sunday Jul 31, 2014 1:53:18 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: Honestly I think non-Rock Slide Golem is dumb. Losing to Rest Zapdos and possibly even Reflect Zapdos is embarrassing. If I were to drop one of its moves, it'd be Body Slam. Jul 31, 2014 18:56:22 GMT -8 *
marcoasd: It depends on the team. Many teams are fine with paralyzed Zapdos, and about rest Zapdos, you can explode at very worst. It's the price you've got to pay to have "Explosion on Rhydon". Slam can paralyze (Starmie, etc...) Aug 1, 2014 2:03:33 GMT -8
Isa: Rest Zapdos is awful in almost all scenarios (works vs non-DNite Wrappers but that's it). Reflect Zapper has its merits of course, but yeah. My main issue with Sub over Rock Slide on Golem is that sleeping Exeggutor wakes up for free on it. Aug 1, 2014 2:21:18 GMT -8
