Old Pokemon vs Kalos Born Pokemon

#1Hoozah123Posted 5/11/2014 5:42:23 AM
Does anyone here still use their old pokemon from the previous game or are you guys using Kalos Born pokemon?

For me, I just use my Kalos Born since most of my old pokemon can't exactly keep up.

Depends.. I've cheated to get decent old Pokemonů but generally breed Kalos ones as I have a weird OCD and like them all Kalos breedů..

Most of my competitive pokemon are Kalos born, but that's only because I started battling competitively in this gen.

I like to gen the older pokes to make breeding easier or just so I don't have to hunt down a specific egg move/hidden ability. But because even though I've watched like five tutorials on Pokegenning, I still can't get nicknames to work properly. So I gen then transfer then breed so I can nickname

My medicham, aerodactyl, groudon, regirock, lapras etc are migrated all the way from leaf green and emerald.

Medicham was implrted from my precious Pokemon Peael. Then my Typhlosion came from my HeartGold.

Nope. Only KB Pokemon here, because the older ones can't keep up due to how bad passing IVs was. You required RNG abuse or genning to get something good (honestly I RNG abused for the legends, but bred normally for the 'common' mons). Now with the Destiny Knot buff, I can breed pretty much any Pokemon to perfection.

Simply put, even with how barren this gen is, this change was so impacting it finally made me work on my comp team.

I use both. I generally try to breed new stuff if I can, but in the case of stuff that needs old tutor moves, I got no problem using old stuff. I'm not gonna breed a Kalos born Eevee for Sylveon until it can learn Hyper Voice in Generation VI. Because damn it, Hyper Voice Pixilate Sylveon kicks ass!

I was devastated when I realized Hyper Voice isn't an Egg Move for Eevee, just like Defog isn't an Egg Move for Gligar (though at least it is for Scyther)...
