Bzzzt!

Heracross can learn (by TMs or breeding) kickass fighting type moves. The fact it has high defense means that 'counter' works very nicely against flying pokes.... as long as you dont mind your precious heracross nearly fainting.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Only because most ice pokes are water as well. Ground rapes Ice anyway.

its the same thing. if you bought them all then you wasted 200 dollars. pwnt. the worst thing is that they come out with 2-3 differen't versions of the same game. year after year after year. *sigh* but if you haven't bought one before it is a good game.

Are they going to include the old Pokemon from the Red/Blue eras, in addition to the new ones?

Salac Berry Endreversal. Learns it naturally, and the berry can be obtained legally in R/S/E and Colloseum.

You don't need anything to fight Water/Ice types if you have Miltoic, though.

Toxic + Recover + Obscene Special Defense = What water/ice type?

That was the mainstay of my BT team. She was loaded with Ice Beam and Hydro Pump too, so she won most of my battles by herself. But she got murdered by decent steel-types. One day I will have my revenge, Registeel

My other two were Zangoose (Return > Slash as Consistency > Criticals) and Ninetales (a bit of a weak link, but Confuse Ray is the move of kings. I can barely remember her other moves - Flamethrower, Return or maybe Quick Attack  and... something?)

Milotic is a total bitch to catch. I was way too exited the first time I managed to hook a feebass.

I thought they'd included those in every game to date?

The thing that annoys me the most about the pokemon games is that they always sell them in pairs or something like that. And you can only get all of the pokemons if you have both of the versions. So, if you want to have all of them, you have to buy two or more games instead of just one.

Hopefully you can trade on wi-fi that way we can work together to get them all.

Actully Zangoose might be a good idea to replace Metagross I can use TM's to give some extra moves Possibly an electric attack maybe even a pyscic move if I can find a good oen to teach. Then use the remain spots for more stratigic attacks then just offensive moves.

They never intended you to buy both versions, you're supposed to get one, and trade with people to get the missing Pokemon.  Though as the games decreased in popularity that became kinda hard.  However, Diamond and Pearl do use the wi-fi for trading and battling, and it also supports voice chat.  So any Pokemon you can't get in the version you buy, you can just look for someone online who does have the one you want.

Also, it's likely the older Pokemon won't be available in these games, they usually throw in some of the more popular ones, Pikachu, Vulpix, etc, but other than those few you'll need to trade with the older versions, or find some one on wi-fi with them.  All the old GBA games are compatable, so if you have a fully complete Pokedex in Emerald, you can trade them all over to Diamond and Pearl.  I also imagine that Battle Revolution will include some more of the missing Pokes.

its the same thing. if you bought them all then you wasted 200 dollars. pwnt. the worst thing is that they come out with 2-3 differen't versions of the same game. year after year after year. *sigh* but if you haven't bought one before it is a good game.

That same thing can be said for almost any game sequel.  Pretty much the same thing every time with small improvements here and there.  The series definatly needs some bigger changes in some places.  The graphics, mainly, but other than that, why change something that works so well?

And hey, is it just me or did Pikachu actually say "Pika" in the Battle Revolution video?  Could that mean they're finally using the proper voices, instead of the 8 bit sound samples?

I just think that it's better if you can complete the whole game without having to trade, or having to buy more games.
