    Default Something that still bugs me today...

    Hi everyone.
    I know this sounds strange, but it's true:

    One day I was playing pokemon sapphire, looking for feebas, at the route that they appear acording to the pokedex. Well, after a while I became a bit frustrated and started catching wild carvanhas that appeared while I was looking for feebas. (It is so frustrating...)
    After a while, I went to my PC and wintdrew one of my carvanhas (it was around level 20) and taught it HM Waterfall so I could climb the waterfall on that route to see if I was more lucky....
    After another while I gave up trying to fish a feebas and I was so frustrated that I decided to release those carvanhas i caught. I don't know why but when I tried to release a specific one of them (I think it was the one I taugh Waterfall, but not sure) it said the usual message "bye-bye Carvanha" but after pressing A it reappeared and said somethng like "it came back". I tryed to release the other carvanhas and they were immediatly released, only that specific one I couldn't...

    Has something like this ever happened to someone else in any game with any pokemon?
    Since everyone these days has one of these, I'm going to put mine too...



    On a funny note, I made this personality test on 3 different ocasions and the pokemon I got every single time was Togetic so this can't be very wrong...

    You can't release Pokemon with HMs incase you try to strand yourself somewhere, and trust me, there are a lot of places where you can strand yourself.

    Yeah, 'tis the same reason you can't transfer HMed Pokemon over to DP, they don't want you to get stranded. Though 'tis still possible, with Teleport.

    Could you give me an example of how you can get stranded? Not that I want to, it's just that I'm not understanding how you can get stranded...

    You could get stuck on Mossdeep city, or another part.

    waste all your money on Pokeballs and then throw them all out.

    Release all your Pokemon, except a Ditto.

    Now you have absolutely no one who can sue HMs, and cannot catch any Pokemon.

    Hoenn

    Pacifidlog: No surf, No fly

    Mosdeep: Same as above

    Sootopolis: Dive, and Fly needed to escape

    Little Root-Mauville: without Surf, Fly, or Rock Smash, the only cities you can travel to are Little Root, Petalburg, Rustboro, Verdanturf, Slate Prot, and Mauville (and that cruddy little town north of little root that I can't remember)

    Kanto

    Pokemon League: Yeah try to get passed Victory road without any HMs

    Cinabar Island: Obvious isn't it?

    Pokemon Centre at Rock Tunnel: You needed Cut to get there I believe, and good luck in the dark.

    Sinnoh

    Snowpoint-Fight Area: You need HMs to get past Mt. Coronet.

    Canalave: Not an Island, but still need surf

    Pokemon League: Same deal as Kanto, exceptt you can strand yourself before Victory Road's entrace, or at the castle

    As you can see, there are many places to trap yourselves (and plenty more I neglected to mention), some with a higher range of freedom, but yes, you are still trapped.

    you mean less. Virdian has a Gym, Cherrygrove had a PokeGear app, and Snadgem has the Lab and the Sawrm Monitor.

    Something that still bugs me today... part II

    If I recall correctly, when you invaded Team Rocket base at Mahogany there was a TALKING MURKROW that would tell you what the password was...
    Since everyone these days has one of these, I'm going to put mine too...

    So? They have a talking Doduo in the first generation, and a talking Meowth in the anime.

    The talking Doduo lived in Copycat's house...it would say something along the lines of "Mirror Mirror on the wall..."

    I always got the feeling that it and Murkrow weren't actually talking, but mimicking voices like Chatot does. After all, it IS possible to teach a raven to say some short words.
