Quick question - I'm really not far into this (when I said slowly, I meant sloooooowly) and the special demo just released for everyone. Are any of the "transferable items" worth playing through this demo for before returning to the main game?

Not really unless you want some poke or heal balls. Glalie is the only thing worth while really

Good luck, Athrun! Grin Who is replacing Walrein? I ask because the competitive scene interests me but always seems like another language: any insight would be useful!

I had no idea about this, and I missed out first time round. I'll bet you're further ahead than I am, Jay!

Thanks, knowing my skill to be average I'll probably need luck. As for the replacement I chose Milotic, Walrein just didn't pull any weight during last doubles season (which was hoenn only) so I decided to go for a bulky set with milotic to see how it goes.  It mostly does the same thing really, although it does have a few advantages over Walrein, not being weak to fighting is one, and the access to scald over surf gives it better stalling powers.  It also doesn't have to rely on Rest to recover its health, being one of the few water types that learns Recover.  Rest had its perks as well with getting rid of status ailments like toxic.

If you're curious about the team I can post the team in general, it's rather cookie cutter as it got thrown together to make the previous ratings season and was mildly adjusted for the upcoming competition, but I think it covers all the bases it needs to. If I had the time I'd probably have made a rain team as I love abusing weather in singles and doubles, but this should cover me well enough I hope.

The team:
 


I'm fully expecting to rank average, but it'll be fun to see what happens either way. Plus the competition is restricted to hoenn only, which will be refreshing. All the pokemon you see in practically every wi-fi or smogon match aren't hoenn besides breloom, so the roster will be fun to see.

Hoenn only does sound like a very intriguing restriction! I assume it means purely Gen 3 Pokémon so that you couldn't have, say, Golem in your ranks (ready to be swept away at the merest drop of water)? Speaking of sweeping away, Breloom's an interesting choice. I like the monster, personally, but am painfully aware of his weaknesses...

It's still the Delta Episode for me. To be honest, I've not picked up my 3DS in anger since Captain Toad came along.

Sorry, I meant hoenn pokedex only, pokemon like golem are allowed. Although there isn't much reason to use most of the other region pokemon allowed as most of them aren't all that good. Pinsir for example, it has a powerful mega evolution, but mega salamence does with pinsir could do better so most people will go with mence instead. As for breloom, he's actually pretty common in the competitive scene, he has a pretty good niche because of his access to spore and mach punch and his very high attack stat.

Some sort of special Serperior, anyone? You need to enter the code POKEMON497 to get hold of him (and it is a male - or, at least, mine was).

Has its hidden ability, which may interest competitive battlers. Leaf Storm away!

I've had my Contrary snivy since last week when I got one off the gts from a japanese player. I've got over two boxes of breeding rejects of the things now. Still at least they're actually making this event international for once, it's so rare for anything besides event legendaries to be released properly.


But more importantly for me at least, the battle competition started today and I've finished my ten matches. I did better than I expected honestly, winning nine out of them and the loss being by probably a few hp left on the opponents metagross. Its only just started though so I expect that win / loss ration to change tomorrow as the better players start to ladder up and I start meeting them, and I can't help but think people might be seeing that salamence on the team preview and assuming I'll use it be cause of what they're bringing to the matches.

Some sort of Reckless Emboar is now available if you use the code POKEMON500 (sounds like a car race). You have one week. Cool

That Serperior download was pretty sweet. Additionally, I started Wonder Trading for a while the other day and the first one I received was an Adamant Scyther with Technician. Sweet!

Just got the Serperior and Emboar, and I can see more Pokemon starters doing the same thing, unless there are some lacking a hidden ability show up down the line. And ALL THREE starters (which includes the one this upcoming Thursday - Samurott) are as forementioned available until November 30th, giving us plenty of time to get it if a new game has to be started.

As far as other starters go I'm still eagerly awaiting the day gamefreak release Sheer Force Feraligatr, that thing is going to be so awesome once it's legal!

From Serebii:

It has been announced that the Johto Starters are to be distributed this year with their Hidden Abilities.

These are distributed through the Pokémon Link feature into Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire.

Will you be getting these Pokémon? What sets or strategies will you run on them?

I'm not too sure whether I'll use typhlosion as it still has a really poor movepool and while Eruption is nice with so many pokemon that absorb fire moves around it's not something I'd run. Meganium will probably involve stall and perhaps screens. As for feraligatr, probably isn't too original but something along these lines:

Spoiler:
 

The ev spread is if I go with Jolly, and it takes in to account what I want it to outspeed after a dragon dance so I don't waste speed points.

So another battle competition is accepting registrations right now, normally I wouldn't mention it since nobody outside myself really has the time or interest in raising a team, but I figured as it's Little Cup others might want to check this one out. I'm looking forward to getting some use out of my Omanyte and Machop!
