Is Dodge It overpowered?
Dodge is Protect except it takes like 3+ uses to start having a chance to fail.
i haven't watched in forever, does anyone order their pokemon to just tank shit straight to the face
I often order my Gardevoir to take it right on the face.
No, it's either Dodge It or they act surprised/shocked, implying they haven't had time to react
A couple of times it happens
The real strong trainer does, but only when not facing an equal.
Ash's Torterra had to that after evolving when he became too heavy to dodge.
He lost every fight he was in lol
Ash had a whole thing where his Turtwig did that and Ash scolded it for tanking instead of dodging. he trains it for speed all anime but then later when it evolves and couldn't dodge and Ash had to learn to train it to actually tank hits.
"we trained him wrong, as a joke"
Usually champions to flex on Ash and his rivals.
and then it’s still the biggest jobber he’s ever had
>Ash had to learn to train it to actually tank hit
he sure did a terrible fucking job, huh
He's so fucking stupid
For real. Imagine EV training your Turtwig/Torterra's speed.
Paul was right. Ash is a fucking noob.
The anime relentlessly shitting on my favorites?
Sawyer's told his slaking to just eat hits from Ash's hawlucha that one time
"Dodge It" is just Protect.
And based on how much it's used in VGC, I'm going to say yes.
>Oh gee, thanks for the brilliant suggestion, I was just gonna stand here and get hit. Totally wouldn't have done that on my own out of self-preservation or anything.
With the amount of time we see pokemon just standing there and getting hit, actively ordering them to dodge is the correct thing to do. Pokemon are dumb as fuck. I mean how else are they letting themselves get dominated by humans?
When your Pokemon is reliant on your split-second orders, telling them to dodge and when is important. The trainer could've told them to brace the hit, or attack in that time, or do anything else. The Pokemon trust their trainer's strategy, and the trainer trusts their Pokemon to carry out their orders to achieve victory.
Combined with aim for the horn it’s broken and needs to be banned to Ubers
>people genuinely get pissed off about "Dodge It"
>Evasion has been a game mechanic since Gen 1
>That time Ash taught his pokemon to dodge undodgeable attacks like aerial ace
The one instance where a gym leader should say fuck you, and not give him a badge.
Depends. Does your local meta enforce an Evasion Clause?
Not as OP as Aim for the Horn or the completely broken Thunder Armor
Your "X" avoided the move with your shout.
no in fact pokemon games would benefit from having dodge it/protect be a seperate dedicated button to allow 4 move slots
We really need a semi-real-time pokemon game where you can move your 'mon around the arena and use the terrain.
Powerstone, Pokemon edition.
isn't this similar to singles v doubles?
in that singles is prediction based and doubles has so much more utility since you have two actions per turn
no im afraid youre retarted and should stay in singles format
i'll need a better reason to change my primary battle type than 'because I said so'
okay have all the raisins you want you morbidly obese faygit
really? i was genuinely interested in your reasoning
More realistically, the dodger would eventually run out of stamina to dodge or the attacker would change their tactics
This is a world where attacks travel slow enough that you can give a sentence-long command in response. Sometimes even multiple sentences.
>Ash gets a turtlemon
>it is without a doubt complete fucking shit it does almost nothing good
Why was this a running theme?
Ash trains all his pokemon like fucking pikachu
Ash’s autism can only handle sweeper mons
