I agree with what Kinsale said, but if you still plan on going out of your way to get the Ability Capsule I believe it's called, I just hope you know that it's sadly a one-use-only item, so once you use it, it's gone and you just wasted your time getting 200BP for basically nothing.

Normally I would agree since it'd be faster to just breed for offspring with a better ability, but since in this situation it's a shiny I can understand going through the trouble.

yup and it's not like I'm trying to get it right away. I'm going to train other Pokémon while I use the battle maison and the battle institute to test my team and see if I find a way to improve it(I almost never use BP anyway so it'll end accumulating)

I just realized I have an Analytic Porygon. Guess I'm off to the Battle Maison to get those items to trade/evolve it with (after some breeding of course).

Holy crap! Porygon-Z's base Speed stat is 90, and if something is faster then it is, its power is increased by 30% using the Analytic ability, punishing speedsters. Plus it can use Conversion 2 to become Ghost type when dealing with Fighting types (assuming it survives the first blow).

This thing is going on my team, no question.

The thing is, Porygon Z probly won't survive the first hit, assuming it's hit by a fighting attack.

Eh, true. With no defenses it can't take a super effective hit. Ah well, no Pokemon is perfect.

@Retro_on_theGo Also true. Though Porygon-Z's Special Attack is significantly higher then Attack.

Actually the way I see it Analytic is about even with Download since it powers up all moves if slower while Download has a 50/50 chance of utilizing the higher Sp. Attack, but activates no matter what.

Download is usually the preferred ability on Porygon Z. I guess you can use eviolite Porygon 2. I heard that was a thing.

Yea I used it in Black 2 and I currently am using it now in X.

Am I the only one that counts Pokemon by the evolution line instead of each Pokemon itself? For example, I count Charmander, Charmeleon, and Charizard as just one Pokemon because, they kind of are. Anyone else feel like gamefreak should start using this way to count how many Pokemon are available in the game?

When you think about it, Pokemon are like butterflies. Both metamorphose when they get bigger, and even though the multiple forms belongs to the same species, each one has a separate name. In any case, I tend to interchange between beginning and end when it comes to talking of Pokemon evolutionary lines. Like the Charmander line or Charizard line; I don't really use one side more then the other.

I thought Wide Lens would get another 4% increase this generation, since it actually boost low accuracy moves by 4%. 10% would have been more ideal but then people would use it way too often for 1 Hit KO moves.

Mario Kart 7

Zelda OoT 3D

Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars

Pokemon Black FC: 2666 2484 8599

Kid Icarus Uprising

@WingedSnagret I'm just saying, when exploring the Pokemon world and you see the evolution of a Pokemon you already have, that's kind of a waste. I'd prefer that you only find the beginning forms in the wild, and there be more Pokemon so there is a larger variety, instead of just lazily filling in gaps with evolutions. It kind of takes the adventure out of the game. Is there much difference between coming across a baby and then coming across an adult? Not really. They look so close that it really doesn't matter. Doesn't catch your attention.

After some research, I must admit you guys are right. Porygon2 with Eviolite is the superior choice. Plus with its lower Speed the Analytic ability will kick in more often.

Though that does raise a question. Which is the better ability? For example, Analytic raises the power percentage of moves by 30 so all moves get more powerful, while Download raises the Attack or Sp. Attack by one stage depending on which defense of the opponent is weakest to do extra damage to that weak point. But since I plan to have Porygon2 as a Sp. Attacker, there's only a 50/50 chance that the right combination will be available to take advantage of.

Alright guys! I get to go to the Pokémon Winter Regional Championships in Salem, Oregon on the 19th!
Salem's only a 30 minute drive away from me!

...I'll probably get my butt handed to me, but I can go just because it's so close!

And there'll be tons of StreetPasses, I'm sure!

No. Oh no. Petilil is it's own separate bag of adorablenes from Lilligant. I get what you're saying, because you're basically right, but keeping track oft he,an y other way..wouldn't make sense.

I have no experience with Porygon 2 so a quick look at Smogon reveals the preferred ability is trace... Trace. Huh.
That's not a bad option honestly, and I'd probably go with it. Although between the two I'd probably go with Download. The boast is more that Analytic and immediate. Wow, I kind of want to use this guy now too to set up trick room. Damn shame he's not VGC legal >_> lol
Edit: wait.
Lol
This thing is really awesome. I wanna use it now! Lol, someone trade me a porygon.
