Legendary Pokemon

#1Shinwufang2Posted 11/16/2013 5:30:28 AM
What is the point of including the likes of Mewtwo, Yveltal and Zygarde if you can't even use them in the Battle Maison? I don't get it, you put time and effort in to creating something then DON'T allow people to use it. The Legends might as well be in a freaking museum because you can only really look at them. I mean yeah you can use them against the elite 4 but by the time you get to Mewtwo and Zygarde you have been them already. Plus Yveltal couldn't have fit on my current team any way. So why make legendary pokemon if you can barely use them post game...

You can use banned legendaries in free battles online and use them to help train your newer pokemon.

Actually I'll have to agree with TC on this. Its like giving you money for your efforts and then telling you it isn't good to spend in most places.

There is always a way to make something work. Always.

Just off the top of my head lets see... Gamefreak could do some balancing between legendaries while still keeping them a little bit more powerful than your regular pokemon. And sure as with the regular pokemon your still gonna have a few different tiers between these legendaries; some being a bit better than others, niches here an there, and so on. But the end result is allowing only a single legendary on your team if you choose to use them. It would be just like mega's.

So in just about every play (whether it be casual online or competitive) your allowed 4 regulars at least, and upto 1 mega and 1 legendary per team. Or you can stick with 6 regulars if you feel your/its good enough and that's your thing. (edit) If you choose Mewtwo and bring its mega stone, then obviously you gotta pick 5 regulars to finish out the team.(end of edit) Not only would that add a bit more diversity but it could potentially add another layer to strategy on team building if done right ...or atleast with some decent thought put in balance.

I'm sure there are tons of other ways to fix it also besides my method. But there is a quick example of how you can have legendaries mean something in more of the game without little billy coming at you with his favorite uber trio and an arceus as a cherry on the top.
