They have not given Flareon Flare Blitz and Shedinja Brick Break? That's stupid.

I don't think Shedinja not learning Brick Break is stupid...
Scrafty not learning Sucker Punch is stupid.

How will Shedinja counter a Steel Type or something?

Shedinja can always use Hidden Power.
And it has a crappy Special Attack stat.

Re: Nintendo fails. (Pokemon version)

So you're expecting them to overpower some Pokémon, and the series to not be balanced?

Because Flareon's SP ATK is higher than its attack stat, making Flare Blitz utterly useless compared to Fire Blast or Flamethrower.

Baby Time said:

You honestly never think these things through...

How do you expect this to learn Brick Break if it doesn't even have any hands?

I know there are some exceptions like Dusknoir knowing Mega Kick, but that's because of pre-evolutionary shenanigans.

Baby Time said:

Because Shedinja has that one ability that protects it from all attacks besides Super Effective ones. It doesn't need Brick Break, or any move in general, to counter Steel types.

Wrong. Flareon's Special Attack is lower compared to it's attack.

How can a Goomba play baseball when it has no arms to hold a baseball bat? How can a Dugtrio use Shadow Claw/Night Slash when it and Diglett have no claws?

Who said Nintendo Games need logic?
Mario grows bigger on mushrooms, Link can hold a ton of crap in his bag, Power Ups, etc. You see where I'm going?

Wrong. Flareon's Special Attack is lower compared to it's attack.
Oh, whoops, yeah I didn't bother checking that, just assumed. But Flare Blitz isn't really that useful, since it does a good amount of recoil damage. Considering that Flareon has a slow speed stat, it might not even be able to attack, and also because of its low HP stat, it needs all the health it can get instead of losing it because of some attack. Its high SP DEF kind of helps it, but no in the long run, Fire Fang is probably your best bet.

Haven't we learned to not question Nintendo Logic? The Goomba part is not even relevant to this discussion. We're discussing Pokemon, not Mario. Dugtrio having Shadow Claw is also one of those many unsolved Pokemon mysteries. Nintendo doesn't need to create another one. Also, Shedinja has Dig, so there goes your problem with Steel types. The better question is why would anybody be using a Shedinja in battle, besides causing status ailments, I guess?

Tell that to Pokemon such as Weavile and Dusknoir.

If Nintendo games don't need logic, then Shedinja can use Brick Break.

The "Shedinja can't use Brick Break because it has nothing to use as hands" argument fails.

OP: Nintendo fails because of one Pokémon move? Fine, give Nintendo back all the entertainment they've provided you over the years.

Skarmory and Bronzong (with Levitate). Nuff said.

Also...

Shedinja used Dig!
The foe sent out a Flying type/a Pokemon with Levitate!
Shedinja can't hit the opponent!

No it doesn't. It's completely true, it can't. And yes, this topic, and most of your topics, if not, all, fail(s). You're beginning to really annoy me.

They have much better moves than that (they're fully evolved forms, goddamnit). Mason's argument is still valid.

Baby Time said:

I think you're the one who needs better logic here. Brick Break on Shedinja would be out of place, for a bug-ghost-thing. And it's still lame.

Well for one thing Nintendo does not make Pokemon games Game Freak does.

Next you'll be telling us Hudson Soft created Kirby!

But yeah, I agree it should be acknowledged that anything to do with Pokémon is actually the responsibility of Game Freak Incorporated, Wizards of the Coast, etc. Nintendo might own it but Game Freak develops it.

I don't think I said Nintendo owns Game Freak.

From my understanding, Game Freak develops Pokémon. Nintendo owns the copyright.

Nope my friend was telling me that he read an article in some game magazine that said Game Freak could make Pokemon games on other systems if they wanted to
