Thread: Do you use revives in battle?

    Revives are unique in that they work on KO'ed Pokemon. If you're fighting an opponent who can hit you for 80% damage, a Hyper Potion is effectively only going to buy you an extra turn ("Champion Lance used Hyper Potion on Dragonite! Hitmonchan used Ice Punch! It's super effective"), but a Revive means you can swap in one more Pokemon than otherwise if yours gets KO.
    "What?! You want me to nickname someone I just met?! You shouldn't put people on the spot like this!"
    (No wonder Pokemon nicknames are so difficult to think up.)

    I usually just save them until the end of the battle so I don't have to waste any turns. But I never use them in-battle.

    Yes, mainly for the Elite Four and trainers in the post game. Though I will use them before that if absolutely necessary.

    Only when they start spamming max-revive on their last Pokémon.

    Yes, the revives are the only reason why I beat HG with only the fire starter

    I only use revives in battles against Gym Leaders, Elite Four Members and the Champion if I think I really need them to survive and win the battles.

    I only use them during Elite Four and Gyms, and I always feel like I'm cheating... I don't think I've ever used them outside; I just accept defeat with a surly face.

    I feel cheap seeing that everyone else doesn't use them. I seriously buy like 50 of them every time I go to the E4; I have more than 200 Revives and 300 Hyper Potions. DX
    That's me. I always need more than a hundred of each revives/potions/other medicine in my bag before even entering the league. I sometimes use the herbal medicines instead of the usual potions since they are cheaper and also available by bulk.

    I also need hundreds of revives before ever challenging a legendary to battle. (Imagine my rage when the legendary gets caught within less than 3 tries)

    Traveling on routes, I only use them in between battles, but during elite 4 or gym matches I limit my self to only using as many as my opponent does

    I do sometimes, usually against the E4. I guess I shouldn't as it would make me a better battler otherwise.

    I only use them if I'd lose otherwise. If I'm on my last Pokemon and I know it doesn't stand a chance, I'll use a revive on a stronger one so that I can still win (or at least have a better chance of winning). This usually is in the Elite Four or champion battles.

    I always have a designated revive Pokemon, which is a low level Pokemon there to be sacrificed for the greater good. That being, that Pokemon is there to have its turn wasted while I use a revive.

    Only in between the E4. Not in the battles themselves.

    About as commonly as any other item. That is to say, it depends on a) if it's useful and b) how rare it is. It's like if you only have a Pokeball, 2 Ultra Balls, and 4 Master Balls on hand and you're facing an uncommon Pokemon- let's name it "Noarark". Sifao is rare, but not rare enough that I have to use a Master Ball or it'll never show up again, so I use an Ultra Ball. Let's say there's another extremely rare Pokemon that has a 0.000000001% chance of encounter- let's call it "Ghosdrigan". Ghosdrigan is extremely rare, and I probably will never encounter another one on the same cartridge, so I use a Master Ball.
