Well, we all know about how notoriously bad Nintendo Power is at rating teams and all the horrible advice they have given over the years. Well, in this month's Nintendo Power (140) they actually gave some normal advice (yeah, that's right, I subscribe to Nintendo Power, gives me something to laugh at).

"The HMs you need to get around the Pokemon world aren't necessarily the attacks that will serve you well in battle."

"each is equipped with too many of the same type of attack. Choose Thunder for its power or Thunderbolt for its accuracy, but don't choose both."

Imagine that. Of course, this sort of contradicts every single other piece of advice they have given. How many times have you seen them say that a team with more than 1 move of the same type is excellent?

This makes me wonder if any Nintendo Power writers have been surfing around on the internet...

*looks around for suspicious characters*

On another note, they are releasing a Pokedex for G/S. Most interesting... I await this book of comedy.

On the page right afore they made those nice remarks, they say STUPIDITY. Something along the lines that giving your critters Lemonades and Potions makes them happy. Chaa.

I don't know if this is true, but I'm not surprised if it is since its nintendo and all... but my friend said in Nintendo's offical pokemon g/s strategy guide, they said that if you take a long time to battle, your pokemon will gain more EXP.... or something like that.

Although I haven't seen the new one, i believe the worst one was the team with:charizard, dewgong, muk, marowak, scyther, and one other that i don't remember.

They mean that if you train against low level pokes you get more stat exp. and therefore better stats. However, they failed to mention the box trick so there's probably some newbies running around fighting only level 2s.
