I was reading through one of the comics in the Sunday times this morning when I spotted an article in the kids news section (don't ask) it read:

quote:
.........One trainer hoping to beat the rest is 13-year old Ben Coote, from brentwood who was the top rainer when the championships visited Bluewater recently. "The best thing about Pokémon is competeing with the other trainers," said Ben. "I've got the figures, trading cards, games, a few beanines and some posters on my wall. My favourite Pokémon is Dragonite with his hyper beam."..........

Now this kid is supposedly the hot favourite to win the European championships - but lets look closely - He's 13 and his fave pokemon is Dragonite - and his fave move is Hyper beam... now seriously - how many players worth any weight in a battle use Dragonite? - none - he's too weak to ice. How many use Hyper beam? very few - it's recharge makes it crap...

...it just goes to show that Nintendo didn't select trainers for their ability to fight -or we'd expect to see more synergy/Azure built teams in the championships...

Well - fingers crossed you don't meet any creatures with Ice beam...

Dude, my favorite Pokemon is Dragonite and I love watching him use Hyper Beam cause of sheer power. It's just my favorite, I rarely use him, except for when StarCaliber had no ice moves on his team, hehe.

I use Dragonite, and I have the sense to switch to Lapras when facing an opponent with Ice Beam or Blizzard.

Both Dragonite and Hyper Beam have their place on expert teams, if used properly.

Dragonite's my favorite Pokemon and is very useful if you keep it away from ice. As for Hyper Beam, it's good if you use it at the right moment. Most Azure people could probably beat this kid anyway though .

What I meant is this kid would get pasted by Azurians... and yet they think he's in with a chance of being the best in Europe - now lets see...

A LOT of azure members are from the UK - a lot of them would whip him into a pulp... and yet they think he is one of the best in Europe? how can he be one of the best if half the UK Azurians would kick his ass?

(As it happens my fave' creature is Dragonair/Dratini - I dont like Dragonite *Runs away as everyone tries to Hyper beam him*)

This isn't about Dragonite.
This is about the high possibility of the winner being a 12-year-old who prances around, proclaiming himself King of All and saying:
"My Pikachu can beat anything! Thundershock, Thunderbolt, Thunder and Take Down! That's the ultimate pokeeman!"

How do you UK players out up with those bastards at Nintendo? I don't see how that 13 year old kid could win any tournament. Aren't any azurians competing?

You submit your teams to Nintendo to review, suposedly they pick the toughest teams.

What they actually do reviews for is how many pikachu's you ahve in your team, and how old you are (they wouldn't want a 16 year old with too much time on their hands to be the winner) - I myself didn't apply as my team is only Lv 65 right now - and most people would have level advantages

1. the best Pokémon is Weedle with his Poison Sting.
2. Dragonair is better than Dragonite (less weaknesses).
3. Dragonite is more fair in battle than the OTHER choices *cough*Mewtwo*endcough*
4. The probablility is high. After all, my 8-year old brother won an official tourney (well, not a big one...) with his Dragonite.

...*realises that this post makes no sense and has no point*... oops...
