I picked turtwig, and it worked out just fine.

Cut is a decent normal attack, along with strength. Honestly, Defog is pretty much useless, but I had to teach it to my Staraptor anyway.

I got Prinplup. I would suggest one of the others, though, as there are MORE than enough other possible water pokemon and barely any grass and ONE fire which you can get.

I got Piplup, it's honestly more of a liability than an asset.

Yea, I got turtwig (I called it "Terabyte". Cuz, you know, it becomes a ground pokemon in its final evolution (hence "Tera"), and its like a snapping turtle (hence "byte")...heh), but I don't really know if its any good yet or not (only level 12  ;))

P.S. I think I overdid it with the parentheses....

Have to admit the Turtwig evolutions look cool. Although I have to admit being disappointed by Treeko in the previous generation didn't feel like it was that great a Pokemon. Did anyone try Chimchar and if so what opinions do you have of it. If no one has got it I might just have to grab it as there might be a trade market for it's offspring then again by the time i got it everyone will have it already. In any case we already have fire fighter.

I took Piplup.  A lot of people complain that Empoloen takes on a lot of weaknesses with his Steel type, but his defense stats more than make up for it.  Not the best water type ever, but I still love him.

I got Chimchar. I think a lot of people chose Piplup just for the first Gym Leader, but Chimchar is really handy against the Ice and Grass leaders. I thought Chimchar was a good choice. One thing -

NEVER put your Infernape in daycare around level 51, it grew two levels and when I took it out it's move Close Combat (which I had raised to 6 PP with a PP up) had been replaced with Calm Mind... ARGH!

Pastoria move tutor'll fix that up nicely. Sometimes he's the only way that your pokemon can actually learn a specific move, like Torterra's Wood Hammer.

Thanks Lurk, I'll do that.

Could somebody do a trade back and forth of the following to get them in my dex?

Palkia
Mesprit
Uxie
Azelf

I'm too lazy to catch them now, I can do a trade in about 25 minutes.

It's attached to a bank account, and is in conjuction with ebay (a lot of other sites use it aswell) it makes paying for items from a bank account really easy.

https://www.paypal.com/

Oh yeah, when I get a heart scale or a fossil, it doesn't pass on to my bag in the overworld! What am I to do?

Go into the "treasures" section on your menu underground and select "put into bag."

That's how it's done.
