  1. That's a good point Devnull. Why bar lobsters but not swordfish/tuna? Do bots get hung up on right-clicking to harpoon a spot or something?

     

    Lobsters are way more popular as you can sell them easily. With swordfish, you waste a lot of time on tuna which is harder to sell.

  2. Ehhhh, Runecrafting is profitable, so I have an incentive to train it. It was my lowest skill for the longest time (tied with Thieving/Farming), but I eventually decided to just train it. The money I made from cooking was nice, but after 24m xp, there's not really much motivation to get more XP in a single skill.

     

    Firemaking is easy, I've just been burning the maples I've been getting from Miscellania to train it. Usually I'll put in Zybez/Trading Post offers and FM while I wait for people to buy whatever I'm selling, since I can just train the skill outside Varrock west bank.

     

    As for Thieving, it is nothing but pain. I'd rather watch paint dry than spam clicking on a guard/master farmer while having to deal with getting stunned every two seconds. At least with Agility, trying to minimize lap time is a fun challenge in and of itself.

    I understand that completely, I'm the same way. Thieving is the worst skill in the game for me to train.

  3. 1. Block lists are subjective, you can make it for tasks that are inefficient/annoying (spiritual warriors) or for tasks that you don't personally like. If you plan on cannoning a lot of tasks, you might want to block tasks that are inconvenient or unprofitable to cannon. 

     

    2. You should extend the ones you don't mind fighting, abby demons is a good one, ankous is another good one. Metal dragons is up to you, opening up new tasks is also up to you, if you want to deal with them. I can't really answer that for you. 

     

    3. Cannoning normally results in a loss unless you get really luck with drops. If you are doing it on every single task then yes, you will lose a lot of money. 

     

    4. Melee is sufficient for most tasks if you have the proper gear. 

     

    5. Not sure, maybe someone else can answer. 


  4. It's a new scifi/crime drama set in the near future featuring a cop and his robot partner.

     

     

     

    I'm a big fan of Karl Urban and he hasn't disappointed. The chemistry thus far between Urban and Ealy is fantastic and really carries the show. Looking forward to more!


  5. If he was referring to December, Pokebank is what he likely meant. If November... I am just as clueless.

     

    My breeding still hasn't been going well. This would have been a lot less time consuming if I found someone with Ditto in their Safari.

     

    Go to 4chans pokemon board, there's always a friend safari thread up, I'm sure you could find someone there with ditto. 


  6. uuuuuugh. Been trying to do the pokeradar thing for a shiny. It's so difficult. I cant find grass that's both close together, but not too small. Chained 17 Absols before I missed the right bush because it was off-screen to see.

     

     

    Apparently you can use the radar again to generate different patches without breaking your streak.

     

    This is true, if you don't see a bush you think will continue the chain, just charge up the pokeradar by walking into grass that didn't shake until it fully charges then use it again. 


  7. The new shiny rate is double what it used to be, so about 1/4000. Which makes masuda method about 1/700 ( a little less, cbf grabbing the exact number). These numbers are coming from the same guys who found the 3 event pokes. 


  8. So people have figured out some of the parent -> children IV passing is set before the egg is even given to you and now you (if you have a decent stock of IV spreads of that egg group or dittos) you can breed near perfect IVs in a third of the time.  Made getting honedge 31/31/31/xx/31/0 easier.

     

    And for your team, if you have sylveon with pixelate you should use a normal move (I think hypervoice might be an egg move?); if not may as well use the other ability.

    I think you can also either change gyrados or gengar moveset or change out roserade or heatran to get your coverage/priority.

     

    Gyra is currently my go to counter to talonflame, intimidate is great at stopping that stupid bird from putting on a long sweep. Gengar honestly isn't pulling his weight, so I'll prob swap him for something like an orb'ed terrakion with quick attack/stone edge/close combat/xscissor, unless someone has a better suggestion. 

     

    As for sylveon, I should just swap his ability to cute charm instead, it was something I overlooked. I've had a lot of success with his kit so far so I want to keep it. If moonblast wasn't so strong I might consider using a normal type attack for the added power, however moonblast has a 30% chance to lower special attack so I can't justify using anything else.

     

    Heatran provides me with fire/poison immunity for anything aimed at sylveon/aggron. Aggron really is a powerhouse. Only his lack of leftovers hurts him, and that's why I have a wish passer. 

     

    Roserade is a very important grass coverage that my team lacked ( I got walled by a gastrodon in my first game with this team), immunity to spore, and can get rid of toxic spikes should they come up (haven't seen them yet though). 

     

    Thinking about Gengar now though, losing him means I lose ground/fighting immunity, which are good opportunities to switch in. Hmm.

    I'm really lacking in rock coverage and priority right now. I play in the pokebank OU tier since that's the tier that will be standard once pokebank comes out. Any suggestions (prob gonna give roserade lefties instead of orb)

  10. The floette is just leftover from the ingame story, they had to have a model of it. The two vivillion patterns (especially the pokeball one) will probably be event vivillions where they advertise it as an exclusive pattern. 


  11. In relation to my previous post, the same guy managed to find these, which are supposedly Megas.

     

    latias.jpg

    http://www.serebii.net/latios.jpg

     

    As much as I want to theorize that either Soul Dew is retconned into Latinite or their megas give the same boost as a Soul Dew but legal in the facilities, I cannot help but note how... weird they look.

     

     

     

    There's another theory about that one. Instead of being a new mega, it's possible that there might be a way to fuse latias and latios, which would give you the purple color. That 3d model is used for both latias and latios. 


  12.  

    One doesn't even have to play Scape in the past to find them annoying. 

     

    Also, this is apparently what the Honedge line looks shiny:

    l5pfskf.jpg

    Darklight_equipped.png

     

    Identical.

     

    If I get a shiny Honedge, I'm definitely keeping it as a Doublade.

     

     

    They are not identical at all. The hilt is completely different which is the most defining feature. 


  13. Is it weird the main thing I noticed was how your OT number is like mine from Black 2 in that it's a palindrome (42124 in B2)?

     

    You truly won big. Show us what Shinaught looks like.

     

    Chesnaut is actually looking to be decently strong. Bulletproof is surprisingly strong. He can almost completely wall Gengar (immune to shadow ball/sludge bomb/focus blast from bulletproof, resist tbolt, though gets hit by dazzling gleam if he's running it). Delphox is the weakest of the starters this gen competitive wise. 

     

    Here's a list of everything bulletproof is known to block so far:

    Shadow ball

    Aura sphere

    Energy ball 

    Mud bomb

    Sludge bomb

    Seed bomb

    Ice ball

    Focus blast

    Gyro Ball

    Electro ball

    Bullet seed

    Acid Spray

    Barrage

    Egg Bomb

    Magnet Bomb

    Octazooka

    Weather Ball

    Rollout

    Acid spray

     

    Bullet punch is not blocked

     

     

     

    I've been trying out mega houndoom on showdown today, he's alright. He gets solar power as an ability, and has dark/grass/fire/poison coverage which is lackluster but workable. He's still pretty slow, only 115 base speed in his mega form with 140 special attack. He's reliant on having sun up so I run lead ninetales with heat rock. 

     

    I'm looking for pokes that can counter talonflame. I was thinking one of the water/rock types to resist both of his stabs, I have carracosta on my team atm but I haven't faced one to try it yet and he's not that good. Any suggestions? I really hate that things ability. 120 bp priority move is dumb. 


  14.  

    Apparently there are new shinies that are albino

    Do share.

     

     

    Lots of rumors, not much confirmation. I've seen a screenshot of a "albino" pikachu but that's the only thing. If there really was a new type of shiny I figure after 2 weeks we would have confirmed that by now. 


  15. There's been some big speculation as to 3 new event pokemon that have possibly been discovered (unobtainable yet though). Spoilered for anyone who doesn't want to know, but these will probably be event pokes at some point, though not much is known so far. 

     

     

     

    Serebii updated his site earlier and included 3 new pokemon, no sprites, basically no information except name and typing. Diancie (fairy/rock), volcanion (fire/water), and Hoopa (psychic/ghost). The interesting thing about this is that when you type these names into the GTS, there is a 1 second delay before it denies it, however, if you input a fake name like Mario, there is always a delay of ~3seconds before it tells you to input a new name.

     

    We do know that their names were trademarked by gamefreak.

  16.  

    I've added everyone upto now, my code is 0731-4855-7765 for anyone that doesn't have it :)

     

    Just finished elite four and started working on completing the first dex, might replace my venusaur with a nice new one with good IVs etc from gwyns safari :) My current one has a nature that hurts special attack too =/

    My Fennekin had reduced spec atk, my Bulbasaur had reduced spec atk, and my Pancham had reduced attack :\\\

     

    My brother was happy to find a Helioptile from Lep's safari, thanks for that :)

     

     

     

    Well I'm glad someone found it useful. Pachirisu Manectric and Helioptile arn't very popular choices. :P


  17. Sticky Web is true. Apparently, Galvantula is going to be receiving a lot of love for being one of the few who can make use of it. On the other hand, Defog did get a buff though.

     

    Yeah I think I mentioned defog buffs a page ago. I'm still disappointed about stealth rock not being nerfed. It cripples too many pokes since it takes weaknesses into account. 


  18. You can chain fish to get shinies apparently. About to try the method myself. It's been confirmed by tons of people so it's definitely legit. What you do is put something with suction cups at the front of your party, find an enclosed area, and start fishing. Just don't miss a hook or move and your chances of finding a shiny will go up. 

     

    Here's an image.

    My safari is sunkern ivysaur and gogoat

     

    FC: 0731-5091-6729

     

    I'll slowly get to adding everyone.

     

     

    Finally opened this thread again after 2 weeks  :P

    1521-3714-6337. Adding you guys. Think my Safari contains Ivysaur and Oddish, not sure about the last.

    E: Brother's is 4441-9488-3570.

     

     

    hay boys hay gurls

    Added all of you. Saradomin, have your brother add my code. 2079-7199-1559


  19. Managed to get myself a Modest Mewtwo with perfect Def SpAtk and Speed IVs. Currently super training him for spatk and speed. Training my Zygarde as well. Hp/Attack evs and going to run coil/glare/outrage/eq. While it's pretty much 100% certain that mewtwo and his forms will remain ubers, Zygarde has been speculated as ou/uu thus far. 


  20. Some pokemon got stat buffs for the first time since the gen 2 special defense introduction.

     

    http://www.serebii.net/xy/updatedstats.shtml

     

    Most notable, Scolipede gained 10 attack giving it 100 base attack along with speed boost. Alakazam also received 10 special defense, bringing him to 95.

     

    Defog now removes hazards including rocks and spikes on both sides of the field. 

     

    The ability infiltrator now ignores subsitutes. The ability oblivious now is immune to taunt.

  21. Finished the Elite 4 today at about 50 hours. My safari is electric with manectric, pachirisu, and helioptile. Pretty garbage, but if you want solar power helioptiles use my safari. 

     

    ALG yours is water with Quagsire, Octillery, and won't know the last until you finish the e4. 


  22. I'm about 45 hours in now, 7 badges, just caught Yvetal. My team is Vivillion, Aegislash, Greninja, Mega Gengar, Malamar, and Hawlucha. I've pretty much soloed the entire game with Vivillion, using greninja for double battles and the occasional poke vivillion can't handle.
