While I’m thinking about it…
Which is somehow a dragon. I wonder if its eventual dragon-type evolution was planned back then, and didn’t appear due to space issues? Or perhaps the opposite, this was thought up before dragon-types were in the game at all?
Here are more floating platforms, but now they’re in the middle of empty water.
I guess if you specialize in bird pokemon, you’re able to get more out of them than someone like me, including an expanded range of flight options.
See, mirror move is fun.
…so apparently fainted pokemon being able to use HM moves isn’t universal. That, or else I just killed his pokemon.
I wonder what happens in such a situation? Can pokemon heal over time on their own, so he’s just got to wait a bit? Or do they have to send someone else out with a healthy pokemon to rescue you?
I mean, in this case he could just jump in the water and swim back, but in general. (Also, if he’s like the protagonist maybe he doesn’t know how to swim.)
This trainer, in contrast, has no such concerns.
Game why didn’t you just make a female swimmer sprite?
Although, considering how dangerous pokemon can be, and how well the whole mewtwo business went, maybe they put this kind of stuff on an island of a reason. That way, if some revived fossil pokemon turns out to be some L100 psycho, the killing spree will be containable.
Ah, look at hse nice, well-rounded stats.
People have the weirdest conversational skills in this world.
I wonder if this is a legacy from some earlier idea that you should need to select SURF again when you reached land to stop surfing. I mean, you’d expect this message to just be that you’re already surfing.
That’s the level tentacool evolve at, so I’ll catch this one to get a tentacruel.
Actually, that’d make for a good fic. Some kid walks into the pokemon lab with some new pokemon they found, and it turns out to be the scientific monstrosity that wiped out their predecessors. Much pants-shitting to be had that day.
This, I think, has a lot to do with why pikablu was one of the strongest rumors. You knew there was a raichu evolution somehow.
I remember frustratedly rereading this dialogue, wishing I could make him tell me what it had evolved into and how it happened! I knew it couldn’t be the trading, after all, he must have done something else after the trade.
This whole area was full of fodder for rumors. It’s the center of the missingno business. The mist stone, which evolved pikach/raichu into pikablu, or mewtwo into mewsomething, or every pokemon, was said to be found in Seafoam (perhaps because of how empty the area is compared to other dungeons). he first legendary is found now. (You can go to the power plant first, but no one does. It’s an optional dungeon for later on.) Proof of pikablu or at least some raichu evolution was in this guy. There’s the fact this lab that revives otherwise impossible to get pokemon, suggesting that there might be more they could give out, and of course, the mansion…
First, that’s a kind of unsettling description. Has anyone written creepy fic about it like for amnesia and curse? Second, how does that even work? If pokemon didn’t know they didn’t know something, could they do anything?
One thing I did in Red was duplicate my fossils, allowing me to then trade multiple ones to other games. It won’t show a number because you aren’t supposed to have more than one of a key item, but it’ll still duplicate. Note that if you do this, you’ll be stuck with it for the rest of the game, since you probably won’t want to take the time to revive well over a hundred of them. Also, watch out for duplicating other unsellable items. I duplicated the fly HM once.
So, here’s today’s question – articuno or aerodactyl?
