I don't think anybody expects Slaking to sweep away an entire team unaided; he's a Choice Bander at heart. Devastating, but only if you play him right. He is robust enough to take a couple of hits, though.

Another moveset....

My Ambipom 'Ho Chi Minh'

- U-Turn
- Fake Out


What other moves shall he have? Basically, whenever I get a free switch, he'll come in, with a Fake out, and disappear with more damage to something bulkier using U-Turn. I'm just wondering what else his movset should have. Websites reccomend Payback (I can't see why, he's unlikely to survive a direct assault, or attack second.)

Return and Brick Break are the first things that come to mind.

i feel stupid for asking this (mainly because i don't even know exactly where i am) but I'm stuck. I'm at the place where it's got a lot of rocks (Veilstone city, I think) and this dude tells me I can't pass to the next city due to a power outage. What exactly do i do here?

I take it you mean your in resort area south of the town. Og into the main resort building in the south area of the resort. you can walk through the building (and heal if you talk tot he desk clerk) It will take you to a beach follow the beach west tot he next town.

I think you have to go and get the Lake Pokemon, or do something else not-gym related, before you can progress. Don't really remember.

Thanks, that worked great. I spent about an hour trying to figure out where to go! :D

Is it just me, or is Crasher Wake really easy?

Most of the game is pretty easy, if you have reasonably levelled 'mon and a stock of potions.


Oh, and I just though: Payback would actually be pretty useful on Ambipom, since otherwise he's completely harmlesss to Ghosts. They'd be immune to all his moves except U-Turn, which they resist (In Gengar's case, 4x.) So go with Payback over Return unless you have a really good reason not to be concerned about Ghosts.

Yeah, with it's Technician ability, Punishment is a great attack. The ability will make it equal Brick Break in power, plus, there's always the chance that someone will switch something into it, doubling the power again.

So, I'm trying to get a team together. Does getting decent IV's always take this long? I've spent hours hatching eggs now and none of them have had more than 20 in the stats they need. :-\

The Technician ability is pretty cool, it essentially makes weak moves mega-powerful.

Fake Out is a nice option for Ambipom, make sure you max out Ambi's Attack EV's, so that Fake Out is annoying as possible. Speed EV's are also a must

Pfft, I don't bother with IV's. The odds against getting something decent in more than one specific stat are pretty huge.

If you couldn't use Everstone trickery to get the right nature, it would just be ridiculous to even try.

Also use the poke with the best stats as a parent so the kid inherits good stats if you give birth to a poke with better stats in an area you want bring that one in as the parent.

Heh, I got this AR code that makes any of two of your pokemon breed instantly after one step (as far as one is male and the other female), including pokes that can't breed with each other, it was fun. But then I tried with 2 females, 2 males, 1 male & 1 legendary, 1 female and 1 legendary and they all crashed the game when I walked 1 step :(
