For now, only basic forms are available. Had pretty much the same confusion when I saw all three mons not ready to evolve past level 18.

Is there any specific guide for new members here?

And hi everyone. I am an adult female who hopes to make some new friends here. In addition to Pokemon, I also like monopoly and chess.

Yo
Welcome!

If you want to know the forum rules, you should be able to view those under the "forums" button.
There's also the egg clicking site which does have a faq available. The login is the same as for here.
https://gpx.plus/help

There's a variety of stuff to do so you certainly won't be bored. The base forms for the Galar starters were released the first of this month so it may be worth keeping an eye out for those on there.

Thank you so much, that is quite helpful!

So with Christmas only three weeks away, for those who celebrate it, do you feel ready for it to be so soon? I myself am a little freaked out because I haven't done any Christmas shopping, nor do I even know what all my family wants. Guess I'd better get to work...

Hi everyone. Someone posted their Battle Tower team a while back on another thread after they completed Master Commuter (3,000 Battle Subway wins) and I thought I'd do the same thing.

I use a slightly different team now, but I'll be showing off the team that carried me through most of the grind.

Ancient Alakazam

25 HP/19 ATK/30 DEF/31 SATK/26 SDEF/7 SPD (138 total)
Modest (+SATK -ATK)
Choice Specs

Ancient Alakazam sports the same extreme base SATK stat as Mega Alakazam (180), and having a SATK boosting nature and perfect SATK IVs makes it an amazing cannon. As a party leader, it often can completely melt at least half of an entire team before it runs into a Zoroark or other obligatory Dark type, and if the other team makes the mistake of not having a good Psychic counter it can sweep the entire team outright. This wasn't actually my party leader for much of my grind, and as a non-leader it served as a good panic button to quickly end battles.

Dugtrio

25 HP/31 ATK/19 DEF/27 SATK/15 SDEF/31 SPD (148 total)
Hasty (+SPD, -DEF)
Choice Band

This was my party leader for a long time before I opted for Ancient Alakazam instead. When I was coached through creating a competent Battle Tower team, I was told that Dugtrio would be a good party leader due to it covering 5 types and being extremely fast. My Dugtrio in particular is about as optimal as my Ancient Alakazam, having perfect ATK and SPD IVs and a SPD boosting nature, which are both Dugtrio's strongest traits. It works quite well as a party leader because it's made of paper and can't take hits at all, so being a speedy cannon works the most in that position. As a non-leader it serves as a good revenge killer and counter to bulky Steel and/or Rock enemies.

Mega Gyarados

24 HP/31 ATK/23 DEF/26 SATK/25 SDEF/28 SPD (157 total)
Impish (+DEF, -SATK)
Rock Gem

A very reliable, powerful, and well-rounded team member, Mega Gyarados can deal with many situations. It served most notably as a Psychic counter, and got good use out of its Rock Gem by dealing with Flying Pokemon. It most notably counters Charizard extremely well, being able to deal x4 damage with its Rock move while halving its offensive damage by being half Water-type.


Ferrothorn

30 HP/31 ATK/20 DEF/21 SATK/24 SDEF/25 SPD (151 total)
Bashful (Neutral)
Leftovers

An absolutely amazing and vital member of my team. With Leftovers and beefy DEF and SDEF base stats, this can take a lot of punishment from anything that doesn't directly counter it. I usually use this against Normal and/or Flying type Pokemon since those moves do half damage against Steel. If I'm in the proper position to do so, I hit it with one or two Swords Dances and do some serious damage. Its Steel typing means that it can counter Fairy types, which is important as many teams are sporting Gardevoir or Mega Gardevoir.

Valentacruel

12 HP/27 ATK/27 DEF/30 SATK/19 SDEF/30 SPD (145 total)
Lax (+DEF -SDEF)
Leftovers

As a bulky Fairy type, this counters Fairy and Dark types while being able to take punishment from them. Though its Water typing is somewhat redundant with Mega Gyarados's presence, it helps more than you might think to have two Water-types.

Darmanitan

17 HP/19 ATK/2 DEF/31 SATK/29 SDEF/19 SPD (117 total)
Timid (+SPD, -ATK)
Choice Band

Though the stats on this one aren't nearly as impressive as my other team members, its Choice Band and high ATK base stat make it an effective slugger. It can surprisingly cut through a lot of Pokemon that it isn't a direct counter to due to it being a fast and heavy hitter, but does rather average when it comes to taking hits.

Mega Audino

31 HP/29 ATK/23 DEF/30 SATK/14 SDEF/30 SPD (157 total)
Bold (+DEF, -ATK)
Leftovers

This is what I eventually replaced Valentacruel with. It's currently my team leader, and my strategy with it is to set up once or twice if I don't run into trouble in the first two turns and sweep the opponent's team. It can't deal with Poison or Steel types, but if I run into any I can cancel my sweep and battle normally just fine. It's important to switch it out if it gets around 50% HP, because sacrificing a good Dragon and Dark counter is usually a terrible idea.

As of writing this post, I now have 4,307 Battle Subway wins with my highest streak going to 520 battles. I'm very grateful that I was able to put together a good team after spending a lot of time collecting and hunting for good IV, competitively viable Pokemon. It's quite amazing to me that I went from profusely hating the Battle Tower to being obsessed with the grind. It's very fun when you finally figure out what you're doing.

Sorta.

Christmas isn't all that important for me as I only have a family birthday to celebrate and send out a few xmas cards
Today I bought a really small tree for deco purposes. Aside from that I have a few obligations but nothing too out of the ordinary.

Well, since Discord is having issues at the present time, what breakfast food does everyone like to have?

I'm having vanilla yogurt at the moment.

On cold days I like fried eggs & bacon.

I hope this is an okay conversation topic, I know some people have less food than others.

Sounds like there's some serious things going on.

Hm I prefer to start with yoghurt, too. It's easy on the stomach.
When it's cold I like to have soup for lunch

I don't use discord so I really don't know....

For breakfast, I love drinking milk(lactose free) and/or coffee and eating a toast. Sometimes I wake up very late because my medication makes me sleep a loooot so I just wait until lunch time and skip breakfast lol.

I'm so sad for not being able to play sword and shield, the games look awesome and introduce some new interesting mechanics I would love to try. Unfortunately, I don't have money to buy a switch and buying one of the games would make my wallet cry. During Black Friday, Switch Lite was €199,99. My sister though about buying one but nah, she didn't. Such a shame, though...

I don't usually eat, for varying reasons.

Discord is working again, but I have another question that I hope is fun for discussions!

Which Pokemon has the most fun name to say?

I like Stakataka!

I say it to myself when there's no one in the room because I think it is amusing. :]

One I'm a fan of is Mew. It's really adorable to say "Mew" out loud. I also like Phione.

Notable mention would be morelull seeing how a NL group I'm in (containing mostly parents of small children) tends to upvote morelull scenes like crazy.

I like to pronounce Giratina and Eiscue. Giratina because, while I understand that in English it should probably be pronounced GEER-uh-TEE-nuh (IPA: /ˌɡɪrəˈtiːnə/), in Portuguese we pronounce it JEE-RAH-TEE-Nuh (IPA: /ʒi.ɾɐ.ˈti.nɐ/) in which gira means cute grin.gif A cute ghost? Not really but well.
Eiscue sounds good, it's an ice cube head penguin. I love it.

The way Beheeyem's name is pronounced in the English Pokemon anime always makes me laugh. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhoYR9DbaLU


I will also agree that Mew is cute, and personally I like Pykyumuku because....Well, try saying that five times fast, haha. happy.gif
