This pages represents all of my frustration as a child when fighting metapods. There seemed to be two very popular ideas from people as to what was going to happen on this page, but no. I'm afraid Atty either thinks that DT has no fire attacks, or that if it DID it would have used them by now. Gotta wait a lil' longer for the real flame~

To all of you about to type and tell me that DT should not be able to use those attacks there D: I know. Believe me, I really do. But this is just for funsies; I decided to let it slide since the attacks weren't even really doing anything.

The metapod is shiny cuz harden turned him metal :3

Oh I am free from uni for the year at last. This is going to be so good.

See y'all soon.

commands One thing that irritated me was that you couldn't use commands on pokemon outside of battle. Like SLEEP, how hard would it be for a recalled critter to get some z's while your steelix / metapod whatever buys you some time. Atty should exploit the crap out of this. "hey the rest of my team, why don't you get some sleep while I kick the crap out of this guy." *Atticus's team uses sleep! *Atticus's team's hp is fully restored. *

Also, if a metapod runs out of PP it starts using struggle which does do damage to the opposing pokemon. So it could conceivably win.

I'm not concerned with it being a siesmic toss but would like a page explaining how DT gripped it with no fingers, lifted at least his own weight with less than 10 strenth and still got any distance from swinging his tiny short arms. If DT doesn't win on the next page you'll have to come up with a way for limbless, grounded, psycicless Metapod to actually use struggle. That I would quiet like to see, now that I think about it.

So DT should collect some dry leave, put them under it, light them with his tail and then wait for the Metapod to cook B'| .......Occasionally poking him with a stick.

To be fair, it makes 100% sense that a Mokepon like DT needs to learn Rock Throw. Think about it!! It has claws, it actually needs a lot of practice to be able to grab it in its hands!!

DT's training in the forest paid off after all :D

I actually enjoy fighting metapods. their moveset may be some avant-garde bull****, but they make up for it by being the first evolved pokémon you really encounter with any regularity, and they don't know poison sting, which is always nice, so they're XP dense and difficulty low.

Neeeeh... PP aside (harden has what, 40 PP?), harden would stop working after 6 defense increases.

I'm voting for DT turning around to face Atty/George for some advice and inadvertently touching his tail to that frikken bug.

Here's for guessing that the Metapod is at what, 50% health at this point? But maybe DT's running out of PP from his training session and can't get Metapod's health all the way down...
