I love staryu to death, but it doesn't learn too many good moves, and element stones are hard to get.
well, i couldn't find any good water types either, i'm using suicune as my water/ice type, but since you just got the game, that won't be an option for you until you beat the elite four, i'd recommend staryu, teach it recover, surf, psychic, and thunderbolt (and elemental stones are easy as hell to get)


I caught a Tentacool trying out the Old Rod. I was so surprised I didn't get a Magikarp that I caught it right away ;D but I don't recommend it. You can always catch Red Gyarados ::)


Lapras is a good water/ice type.  You can get it in the Safari Zone once you get the customization unlocked.  Rocky beach is the area.  Hard to catch, but completely worth it.


So Lapras isn't anymore in the Union Cave every Friday?

Looks like a Lapras appears every Friday in the Union Cave now.

Yep, so there you go if you were wanting to build an army of Lapras.  ;D

I might wake up early and go running. I also might wake up and win the lottery. The odds are about the same.

Lapras and Gyarados both win as water types. I LOVE the red Gyarados ♥

How many people went for the notch-eared Pichu promo? It's sooooo cute... but kinda weak. Volt Tackle is so annoying.

i did, it's alright, i'm waiting for the flying and surfing pikachus myself, and i think gyarados fails as a water type, water types are weak enough to electricity without the flying type making it worse

SO true. I HATE THAT! Gyarados shouldn't be flying. It's crazy to think that  >:( It should be Water-Dragon, or Water only.

Gyarados is already one of the top10 Pokemon, he doesn't need the added brokeness of Dragon typing.  But yeah, he's pretty fail as a Water type unless you have Waterfall or Aquatail.

Those are Physical attacks,aren't they? If I recall correctly, Gyarados Attack is much better than Special Attack.

Yes.  Hence why he's pretty fail unless you have one of them.

So making it learn Fire Blast or Thunderblot ain't a good idea...
Does it learn Ice Fang? I just discovered that move.

EDIT: Yes it does.Cool.

Gyarados would work fine, but I usually get one of those in Pearl and I'm looking for something I haven't tried before.

I actually decided to try a Krabby. So far it's not a bad little thing (it knows Mud Shot and its Stomp's really good). Plus I like watching it walk sideways behind me.  :)

Have you seen Graveler follow you around?  Probably about the funniest thing I've seen so far.  (Though, Magikarp flopping around behind you is pretty funny, too.)
