    I'm only, like, a week late for the majority of the world... but ORAS came out in Europe today, so that's my excuse for forgetting and I'm sticking to it. :p Anyway, like always, this thread is for chronicling your adventures in the new Hoenn.

    What starter did you choose? How far through are you? What does your team look like?

    Tip: If you want to post types, try the [type]electric[/type] BBcodes. That'll produce something like this: Electric Obviously replace electric with whatever type you want. ^^

  2. I got it on November 21st and have been playing it as much as I can while at work mostly and a bit at home. I have been loving the new features. In particular, the dexnav which has let me catch a real asskicking Boomburst Taillow early on which has stayed on my team as my designated flyer. I am currently just outside of Fortree after obtaining the Feather badge from Winona. So I am training up my newly acquired Lileep in the road next to Fortree and enjoying chain catching Kecleons with all sorts of different attacks.

    Here is my team:
    Prim the Lileep
    Lvl 27 (in training)
    Ability: Suction Cups
    Rock Grass
    - Giga Drain
    - Brine
    - Toxic
    - Confuse Ray

    Seraph the Gallade
    Lvl 33
    Ability: Steadfast
    Psychic Fighting
    - Low Sweep
    - Cut
    - Psycho Cut
    - Night Slash

    Surrak the Vibrava
    Lvl 36
    Ability: Levitate
    Ground Dragon
    - Dragon Breath
    - Rock Slide
    - Earthquake
    - Roost

    Arya the Swellow
    Lvl 34
    Ability: Guts
    Normal Flying
    - Boomburst
    - Fly
    - Roost
    - Quick Attack

    Slardar the Swampert
    Lvl 38
    Ability: Torrent
    Water Ground
    - Rock Smash
    - Mud Bomb
    - Surf
    - Strength

    Thundaga the Manectric
    Lvl 36
    Ability: Lightning Rod
    - Discharge
    - Fire Fang
    - Bite
    - Secret Power
  3. I picked Treecko as my starter and named him Sidney! The boyfriend bought me the game the day it was released and I just beat the eighth gym yesterday. Because I'm a terrible person, I let Kyogre flood the eastern half of Hoenn for three days because I was busy and when I did play I was too distracted by the AWESOMENESS of Secret Bases. I didn't realize they worked with random strangers too so I've been able to take full advantage of find people's secret bases and getting items and flags.

    My current team is
    Sceptile - Sidney
    Azumarill - Maru (Play Rough is a beast)
    Swellow - Spencer
    Hariyama - Makit (stupid ingame nickname) I never meant to have it as part of my team, but it was so useful, I kept it.
    Manectric - Rai-Lee
    Latias - Alia Another inadvertent addition to the team after I failed to find a Dawn Stone for my Kirla and didn't want Gardevoir.

    I didn't get to play much yesterday but I started in the evening and stuff and managed to beat the first Gym before falling asleep :)

    Badges: 1

    Current Team
    Grovyle (Amaranthus)
    - I had to start with Treecko. Sceptile is my favourite starter and Treecko was my Starter back in the days of Ruby and Sapphire.

    Vulpix (Fernarcus)
    - Naughtily traded this Vulpix over (obviously) because I wanted one and didn't realised I'd not be able to catch one until later in the game. So mine. It's got a silly name, but the reasoning is personal.

    Beldum (Cube) ---
    - Couldn't not have the little shiny Beldum. It's not named Cube officially, but hopefully once I encounter the Name Rater I can change that :)

    I put off starting my copy of Omega Ruby for a week but finally did so this past Friday evening. I've already played over 10 hours and, as usual, haven't actually accomplished that much! I've been heavily enjoying the game thus far though, so it's all good. ♥ Here's what my current playthrough looks like. ^^

    Player: Katie
    Badges: 2
    Current Location: Trick House (Route 110)

    My Current Team:
    Treecko (Shiroe)♂ 252MS.png
    Nature/Ability: Hasty/Overgrow
    Level: 20
    Moveset: Mega Drain, Rock Tomb, Absorb, Quick Attack
    - My starter. Had to be a Grass-type, thus had to be Treecko. Interested in training Mega Sceptile, too. I'm holding off on evolving him until he learns Giga Drain.

    Kadabra (Brain)♂ 064MS.png
    Nature/Ability: Hardy/Inner Focus
    Level: 19
    Moveset: Confusion, Disable, Teleport
    - I haven't trained an Alakazam in ages so I figured that I'd try another out and take advantage of the mega evolution.

    Braxien (Merlin)♂ 654MS.png
    Nature/Ability: Docile/Magician
    Level: 19
    Moveset: Scratch, Echoed Voice, Ember, Psybeam
    - I've never trained Fennekin's line before so this felt like a perfect opportunity to do so. I'd initially bred one with Magician on Pokemon Y so I just renamed it and traded it over to Omega Ruby.

    Taillow (Ace)♂ 276MS.png
    Nature/Ability: Hasty/Guts
    Level: 20
    Moveset: Pursuit, Steel Wing, Quick Attack, Wing Attack
    - Encountered this fellow at level 15 via the DexNav on route 104. Debated a bit whether or not to train him and eventually caved.

    Electrike (Raiju)♂ 309MS.png
    Nature/Ability: Mild/Static
    Level: 17
    Moveset: Spark, Quick Attack, Howl, Leer
    - As I've already trained two Manectric in the past, possibly three, I had zero intention of training yet another... until an Electrike popped out of the grass. I love Electrike. ;_; The fact that @Demelza is training one too didn't help matters. :p Ah well. I've never used Mega Manectric before anyways so this will be a perfect opportunity to do so!

    And that's the team thus far. All males! I demand some gender balance with the next however many Pokemon that I add to my team - and there likely will be at least 3-4 more additions. I can never stick to just six. :p Current targets are Mawile, Corphish, and possibly Shuppet depending on if I get tired of waiting to catch one.

    Even though I've had Alpha Sapphire since November 21 I only have 3 Badges because I've been having too much fun messing around with the DexNav and trying to decide who I want to use my team. So far definite final members are Swampert, Shiny Metagross, and Breloom.

    My Party at the moment is thus:

    Alpha (Marshtomp)
    Brave Nature
    -Rock Tomb
    -Water Pledge
    -Mud Shot

    Docile Nature
    -Hold Back
    -Iron Head
    -Zen Headbutt

    Bashful Nature
    -Mega Drain
    -Poison Powder
    -Leech Seed

    Lombre (Filler until a more worthy candidate appears)
    Timid Nature
    -Razor Leaf (DexNav special move)
    -Fake Out

    Vigoroth (A potential final member)
    Naughty Nature
    -Body Slam (DexNav special move)
    -Slack Off
    -Feint Attack

    Slave1 (Zigzagoon)
    -Rock Smash

    The team so far, at 8 badges:

    Sceptile (Mega) Lv.45
    Big thanks to a certain Tribute that people may know for telling me not to evolve Treecko until Lv.21 in order to get Giga Drain early.

    Hariyama Lv.45
    Despite devouring through my supplies of Lemonade and Moomoo Milk Hariyama's been a valuable asset to the team. Shame more NPCs don't use hold items though since Knock Off is a bit mediocre as a result.

    Manectric Lv.45
    Despite being surrounded by two Megas, one of which is legendary and soon a Primal as well, Manectric has fit in very well as a valuable Flying-resist for this team. Charge Beam has worked wonders.

    Latios (Mega) Lv.44
    Latios has been great fun for several reasons, one of which I will not spoil. Most notably Latios made catching Groudon far easier than it would have been otherwise.

    Groudon (Primal) Lv.45
    I figured since this will likely be the only time I'll ever get to really use Primal Groudon I'd make the most of it. I've yet to use him at this point but I'm greatly looking forward to having him plough through the Elite Four and Champion like Godzilla through Japan.

  10. Thanks to the Exp Share and getting completely distracted by Secret Bases and the Dex Nav, my Pokemon ended up massively over-leveled and I steamrolled the E4. Azumarill (who was nearly at level 70) Play Roughed Sidney and Drake to death while Mega Manectric with Flamethrower and Discharge took care of Glacia.

    So yeah, fun times.

    Still plodding through this game slowly but surely! Still not finished the game, in fact I'm just about to get my final Gym Badge, but I blame all the distractions!

  12. Shiny Pyxis

    Shiny Pyxis 2016 Singles Football

    I just got AS on Friday and beat it a few minutes ago (after pulling an all-nighter). My starter was Swampert, but I ended up never using him ^^;

    Camerupt - Level 56
    Chi (Gardevoir) - Level 56

    (I tried my hardest to keep everyone at the same level sob)

    Honorable mention team members include Louis the Mightyena, Plapti the Swellow, and Lynoone the HM Slave. ♥

    Also, I feel it is important to mention how Minun is my MVP this time around. For a more in-depth explanation, look no further than this tumblr post of mine.

    I wanted to do one final update before getting too far into Victory Road because as of now all of my Pokemon are fairly balanced in level. Once I get head deep into Victory Road and the Elite 4, that will change very quickly. XD

    I ended up rotating between 10 Pokemon and replaced my Swellow with a different Flying-type prior to the third gym. ^^ You'll also see very quickly that my team is overrun with Megas. It's fun! <.>

    Badges: 8
    Current Location: Ever Grande City Pokemon Center

    My Team:

    254MS.png Sceptile (Shiroe)254MMS.png
    Grass & Grass Dragon
    : 43
    Held Item: Sceptilite
    : Giga Drain, Hidden Power (Dragon), False Swipe, Strength

    065MS.png Alakazam (Brain)♂ 065MMS.png
    Level: 41
    Held Item: Alakazite
    Moveset: Psychic, Hidden Power (Water), Dazzling Gleam, Shadow Ball

    655MS.png Delphox (Merlin)♂
    Fire Psychic
    Level: 41
    Held Item: Expert Belt
    Moveset: Grass Knot, Shadow Ball, Mystical Fire, Psyshock

    310MS.png Electrike (Raiju)♂ 310MMS.png
    Level: 41
    Held Item: Manectite
    Moveset: Discharge, Quick Attack, Bite, Thunder Wave

    303MS.png Mawile (Hime)♀ 303MMS.png
    Nature/Ability: Timid/Hyper Cutter
    Level: 41
    Held Item: Mawilite
    Moveset: Play Rough, Power-Up Punch, Iron Head, Crunch
    - I feel like my impression of Mawile has been cheapened a tad due to raising one with a less than ideal Nature but in general I've enjoyed training one and really love Mega Mawile's design.

    354MS.png Banette (Yoko)♀ 354MMS.png
    Nature/Ability: Sassy/Insomnia
    Level: 41
    Held Item: Banettite
    Moveset: Will-O-Wisp, Feint Attack, Shadow Claw, Secret Power
    - I wanted to finally give Banette's line a try due to its new mega evolution and while I don't necessarily see myself using one again in the future, Prankster is a great ability.

    381MS.png Latios (Falcon)♂ 381MMS.png
    Dragon Psychic
    Nature/Ability: Adamant/Levitate
    Level: 42
    Held Item: Latiosite
    Moveset: Surf, Dragon Breath, Luster Purge, Waterfall
    - I very rarely raise legendaries within my teams but Latios is often an exception. With Soar in mind, I nicknamed him after one of my favourite airships. :3

    567MS.png Archeops (Danger) ♂
    Rock Flying
    Nature/Ability: Naive/Defeatist
    Level: 42
    Held Item: None
    Moveset: Earthquake, Crunch, Acrobatics, Smack Down
    - Danger is the fellow that replaced my Swellow and I have no regrets for doing such~. I'd never trained something from the line before and it's been really fun raising raising him from an Archen. Archen and Archeops are great Pokemon, both in design and usage! ♥

    342MS.png Crawdaunt (Scarlet)♀
    Water Dark
    Nature/Ability: Adamant/Adaptability
    Level: 42
    Held Item: Luck Incense
    Moveset: Dragon Dance, Aqua Jet, Night Slash, Dive
    - I ended up breeding a hidden ability Corphish that I'd once received from a Wonder Trade and have been quite taken by Adaptability Corphish/Crawdaunt. Mine's been an excellent addition to my team.

    428MS.png Lopunny (Mirajane)♀ 428MMS.png
    Normal & Normal Fighting
    Nature/Ability: Adamant/Klutz
    Level: 41
    Held Item: Lopunnite
    Moveset: Jump Kick, Quick Attack, Dizzy Punch, Baby-Doll Eyes
    - I wanted to raise a Fighting-type that I've never trained before and finally decided on Mega Lopunny. Even with the new mega evolution I can't say that I've grown any fonder of Lopunny in general but I like mine~

    Done the post-game, so I decided to stomp Super Double Battle for an Ability Capsule:

    Lv. 50 Salamence (Mega)
    Aeriliate Frustration from this guy is death. Also he laughs at Ice Shards.

    Lv. 50 Lapras
    Shell Armour = no hax. Having Perish Song to execute the last two enemy Pokemon remaining was a godsend.

    Lv. 50 Raichu
    MVP of the run thanks to Encore and Lightning Rod wreaking havoc on the AI.

    Lv. 50 Aegislash
    Was surprisingly less of a factor than anyone else on the team by a fair margin but got his chance to shine against the Battle Chatelaine when he won a 2vs1 situation to finish the run.
