    Default VG Weekly Poll #55 Do you like the shaking spots feature in Black/White?

    Hello Everynyan! Welcome to the fifty-fifth installment in the Video Games Forum's new weekly series of polls!

    Centered around the Pokemon series of video games, these polls will be based on the various different aspects of the popular video game franchise. Every Monday, a Video Games staff member will post a new poll that'll remained stickied up on top of the forum. Suggestions for polls and questions can be sent to Joshawott or Zeb and they could possibly used for new polls (credit will be given, of course).

    With that out of the way, here is the poll:

    Ahem. First post. And sence I got the first post, I have the right to put this Shiny Shinx here.

    Anyway, I really like the shaking spots, because you get to see some really rare and powerful Pokemon that normally you couldn't obtain through a wild encounter, even on other generations. For example, I heard that you can find Metagross in the Giant Chasim.

    I like it. I like how that Identifies rarer Pokemon and I used them for Audino grinding and finding rarer Pokemon like Emolga. I even found a shiny in one once. Overall I think it's a nice feature and Id like to see it included in future games.

    Sorta, but I chose no on the poll. They're great for finding certain pokemon, but it's kinda annoying and difficult when Audino is all I ever run into. :V

    Otherwise, they're great.

    I like it! As said before, you get to find rarer Pokemon like the elemental monkeys and fully evolved Pokemon like Metagross, Crobat, Whimsicott, Lilligant, and more. I've seen lots of different powerful Pokemon so far too, though I prefer to use them for lots of exp rather than catching.

    I'd like to see more variety from them rather than them just being Audino fountains, but the idea is great. Maybe the next gen could have multiple rare species with high exp yields, to increase the variety of Pokemon you get out of them while keeping their use in grinding.

    I voted yes. They can be a pain if you're using repels to avoid encounters and they keep spawning in awkward places, but they give you more control in facing the rarer Pokemon in the area, and are an easy way to get loads of Exp from Audino battles. (If the Audino know Heal Pulse, free healing!)

    Yes, I love them. :> I don't mind all of the Audinos that I see. And, most of the time, I leave with what pokemon I wanted.

    Yes, I like them because even if the Pokemon which appeared isn't the one I'm looking for, that Pokemon could still be rare or give a lot of EXP points for defeating it.

    I love it! Altough waiting for a shaking grass tile to appear may take forever, Audinos are a fantastic way to gain more exp. points quickly.

    Eh, it felt like a really minor thing to be honest. But it was nice that it guaranteed a worthwhile encounter in some fashion.

    Also I like how not with shaking grass, but in other areas (caves etc) it could be an item like the elemental gems or a rare/difficult encounter. It gives a reason to check them and makes it much more interesting than Boldore and Woobat and such over and over.

    Audino grinding is VERY useful at lower levels. It's invaluable.

    I also love the chance of getting trade/ stone evolvers and pseudo legendaries in the wild! My only beefs with them are how the sound never goes away even when you're far from them on the route and you're headed somewhere else, and the wild encounters that get in the way if you are going toward one.

    I'll say yes because of the Audino grinding :Þ

    Biking/running back and forth until a shaking spot appeared in the grass when grinding seemed a bit bothersome at first but definitely proved worth it in the long run. I didn't mind being able to find certain rare Pokemon in it as well.

    I also liked the dust clouds in caves because of the gems/stones you could hoard by using Repels.

    I love them, as I can get the chance to catch a rarer Pokemon with an actual battle and a decent ball rather than relying on the crapfest that is the Safari Zone. I want the shaking grass/dust clouds to stay and the Safari Zone to disappear and never return. (Yes, I hate the Safari Zone. I hate it with the burning intensity of a hundred billion noonday desert suns.)
