    Default The Pros Who Are Still Learning

    I like to think of myself as a Pokémon pro, i have followed the franchise since the beginning. But sometimes i learn things that i simply didn't know. For example, just now i found out that rock types are not resistant to rock type moves. This has left me blown away. So is there anything that you didn't know until recently?

    Yeah, I still learn some weird stuff. I still get rock and ground confused sometimes, even though they are totally different. And IVs and EVs still confuse the heck out of me.

    Some days it's a good day to die. Other times it's just a good day to have breakfast.

    I have also followed the franchise since the beginning.I have kept my team over the years even though I couldn;t keep my Pokemon from gold,silver,yellow,Etc. I have stuck with the same team types. What I just now found out was that flying types are not not very effective against ground types

    @Benster404;

    This is a cool idea for a thread. i definitely place myself in the category of 'Pro still learning.'

    I too have been playing the Pokemon games since the very beginning. Up until about 2 or 3 weeks ago I had no idea about EVs, IVs etc. There are now dozens of items that had previously seemed utterly pointless to me because I thought they did...well...nothing. Turns out they're essential when EV training.

    I'm now in the process of EV training a Pokemon for the very first time. Not to use it competitively, just purely for the satisfaction of having a Pokemon in my ranks which has been trained to be as good as it can possibly be. A concept previously lost on me.

    Only found out 2 or 3 months ago that Ditto can breed with pretty much anything.

    Oh yeah and also connected to the whole EV/IV thing... the Pokemon characteristics... genuinely thought that was just GameFreak and the Pokemon Co. being quirky. Had no idea it had a significant influence on how your Pokemon would develop.

    I love that after all these years there's still so much for me to learn about it all. Keeps it fresh.

    I've followed the franchise from the start and I didn't know what Pokerus was until a few days ago.

    I've followed the franchise since the beginning, and only now am I starting to learn what EVs are and how they work. Totally confused on IVs, though.

    I only recently found out that the EV-enhancing items can pass down IV's through breeding if held by a parent. I also just found out where Cradily's eyes actually are.

    I have claimed the Spell Tag and Kasib Berry, along with Adaptability and Shadow Ball. I have also claimed Gastly.

    If you think Nintendo need to sue PETA up the ass for making Pokemon Black and Blue, copy and paste this into your sig.

    I've followed the franchise since I can remember, and only just discovered all the breeding mechanics.

    I have been playing since I was six, and I still have no idea what EV's, IV's and tiers are. Nor do I even know how EV's or IV's work. I usually just play for fun, not all-consuming strategy.
    Once upon a time there was a leafeon. There wasn't anything special about him. He was just a regular leafeon.
    But there's a story behind the leafeon.



    Credit where credit is due.
    Oh look. A deviantART.
