Probably not, although I have been trying to get a shiny of my favourites (Wartortle, Espeon and Crobat) for a long time. I've not managed so far, but have managed to find some in random encounters - a shiny Ditto and a Pidove (now an Unfezant).Originally Posted by Anser
No, I don't EV/IV train either.Originally Posted by Dread Advocate
I always intend to use the Master Ball on one of the legendaries I haven't caught yet, but when I come to choose which Ball to use, I don't usually end up using it. Oftentimes I've ended up using it on a normal Pokémon.Originally Posted by dannyjenn
Definitely not. I was crying out for literally any kind of variation on this theme at all - even the chance to fight the E4 in any order I wanted was welcome in Generation V.Originally Posted by sonic10158
Probably not. I usually pick the Fire type and then regret it half-way through, wishing I'd picked the Water type instead. The only exception to this was in Kanto, where I picked Squirtle and never regretted it. As of Generation IV I hardly ever have a grass type anymore.Originally Posted by soulmaster
Definitely not! This drives me mad. There are entire evolution families I don't touch because I hate the final evolution. I don't like Dragonite very much, even though I love Dragons, and love my Dragonair, but I don't use her because she's not powerful enough, and I refuse to evolve her. The same goes for Wartortle and Blastoise and all of Torchic's line (I hate both evolutions). I'm also pretty close to not liking Haxorus, but I like dragons so much that I got used to it. I can't get over it with Dragonair/Dragonite though, for some reason.Originally Posted by mwto
Up until recently I didn't do that either, but more due to lack of creativity than anything else.Originally Posted by mwetwe
Am I the only one who will only catch certain Pokémon if they're of a specific gender? For example, I would never catch a male Dratini (because Dragonair always seems like she should be female to me).
Arceus either. On a related note -
Am I only the one who hates almost all Normal types?
Related to my reply above, am I the only one who, upon the release of a new Pokémon game or upon starting a new save file, sets goals to try Pokémon/types/strategies I haven't tried before?
@LanguageSponge; @Anser; Mind deleting the quote of me from your quote pyramid next time. I keep getting the notification from it, also I'll be starting a new game and trying new pokemon as well.
Am I the only one that makes sure to have at least 5 potions and 5 of every status things on me at all times?
mwto, no problem. Regarding your question, this is something I try to remember to do, but I am always caught short, and it's usually by poison or burn. I always used to forget to stock up on Antidotes before going into Mount Moon, and back then I couldn't be bothered to train all that hard, and usually got poisoned by either the Super Nerd's Koffing or, if I was playing on Yellow, James's Koffing/Jessie's Ekans on the way out. Consequently, I'd sometimes black out.
Am I the only one around here who used to get lost in Mount Moon? :P
No problem, @mwto. Sorry about that!
@LanguageSponge No, you're not. I also got lost at the Rock Tunnel, which is worse because it's completely dark, and I refused to spend one of my Pokémon's move slots in useless Flash.
Am I the only one who doesn't like to use any legendary Pokémon in competitive battling?
Anser, no you're not, I don't like using legendaries in competitive battling either. In fact, I've only ever used one legendary very often at all - that was my Dialga, which for some reason was my favourite legendary. I got lost in Rock Tunnel so many times and for so many hours each time that even after not going through the tunnel for years now, I could definitely still get through it without Flash without any problem even now. But it took me dozens of navigations of getting horribly lost to get to that point.
Am I the only one around here who doesn't want to see the basic game formula changed? I'm more than fine with the 8 Gyms + Elite Four and Champion setting... If anything I would add two or four more Gyms, but that's about it.
Am I the only one who thinks using legendary Pokemon during the main story line is just annoying?
Anser, I agree with you completely, except I wouldn't add anymore gyms to the region itself, but I'd do the G/S thing and possibly add the previous gen region after you beat the E4, but I don't really care if anyone does that or not.

Reshiram manditorily in the battle against N in Black. I wanted to use the team that accompanied me through the whole story so I could end it with them, and I had to leave my Beartic out of the battle >:(
Am I the only one who has never used chains, Masuda method or anything when catching shiny Pokémon? Mine have appeared naturally.
Still the Unova Champion in my book.
Miltank and spam Sand-Attack on it.
