lol the GTS. that thing isnt really worth crap. youre lucky if people ask for something that CAN be traded at all. mostly it's people asking for untradable stuff like Jirachi. or other impossible to get things, LOL IMMA TRADE MY BALTOY FOR A LEVEL 100 DEOXYS LOL


Lol, im pretty sure these people already have their toys, so they could care less if other people can get them or not. They do not understand that this^^^^ is all that happens on GTS. And like the guy above said: Good luck getting a bank poke with tutor moves from GTS

Don't let limits slow you! I've already taken down my fair share of Legendaries in Ranked and Unranked. I don't use Legends myself. Show your opponents you don't need Legendaries either!

Show them you're badass enough to bring their team down with "common" Pokémon!


This, basically. The advantages of many legendaries are not as clear-cut as you've probably convinced yourself. Genesect is a great attacker, but lacks durability or priority moves, and arguably doesn't do a whole lot that, say, Goodra doesn't. Lati@s are great in a variety of roles, but come with some very painful weaknesses and immunities to their STAB moves. Ground moves murder Heatran. Victini's switching ability is wrecked by entry hazards and Pursuit.

Even some of the legends with clearer advantages (i.e. ubers) often have a variety counters among what are considered the lower tiers. Kyogre is hard-countered by Gastrodon, for instance, which is hilarious.

I like using the weaker legends, for the record, because I know that they're not hideously overpowered.

Those are a lot of the lower-tier legendaries, however. When it comes to the higher-tier (Rayquaza, Groudon, Dialga, Lugia), even with counters you'll still have a hard time. If you don't faint it in one hit, it's going to faint you in one hit.

Good idea. I'll just trade my Xerneas for a Yamask and hope it has pain split.

People insist on these knee jerk reactions and refuse to see that there is a little bit of an advantage, which is frankly kinda unfair when you're trying to make an online competition.
