Happy extra update, everyone! Uploading earlier in the day since I'm out this evening, and I don't wanna miss my Deviantart update.

Don't be too harsh on Atty for this one... He doesn't know )=. I know I just flung attacks at it when I first played, too...

See y'all tomorrow!

Rat FTW So if Bide hits and if it is strong enough to take out DT my guess is Rat will suddenly remember he exists like so many wizard familiars. And if Bob is indeed burnt from any of this embering Rat can simply dodge around until he succumbs to it. It also seems like Stein has no other Pokemon other then Bob so that would be a win for Atty.

@zetamaxr: normal red not fire red, steel type didn't exist and neither did dark for future refrence.
Well I guess we could always just hope the only attack that did any real damage was the crit in bob's face cause if not...this will hurt.

@crazyredemu. Feraligatr, or something I think, and yeah, those attacks were 'super effective' moves too.

@Everyone saying bide will 1-hit KO DT, DT's moves wouldn't have done much damage, unless it caused burn, because of type resistance, so I don't think bide will 1-hit KO DT, but who knows (since it seems they don't visit Pokemon Centers to heal before heading off into a 'major' battle).

I wish you could use odge in game, even though everyone shouts it in the anime @Tsumeken: but what about the special friends, the chick mentioned before.
though they could have been all hers. it would also be hilarious if DT wins and then he sends out a steelix... i really doubt Atty knows anything about weaknesses.

Pokemon 101 Atty, if your opponent is giving you the kinds of smile that seems to call you dumb, you're probably doing it wrong xP.

Am I the only one who genuinely believed that this was a horrible attack where the user just allows you to beat them?
None of my early opponents ever lasted more than three turns, so I thought the gym leader giving me the TM for the move that basically allowed me to mercilessly pummel his pokemon was some kind of expression of resentment.
"Well you totally kicked my butt because I had my pokemon use a move that made it behave like a useless lump for the rest of the battle. Here, take this amazing item and now you can use this attack of utmost awesomeness too, TM 'Punching Bag'!" "......"
Epic page though, my Pewter Gym battles would have been a lot more interesting if they had gone more like this.
edit; and yes, I virtually always chose charmander in my Red and Blue games, but this includes pikachu in Yellow also.

The funnier response would have been to claim victory while Bob's not doing anything. Just have DT climb on top of Bob and do a victory pose.

Wait, wasn't Bide that only stored physical attacks, not special?

this only matters to Charmander Wow. As someone who almost always used Squirtle or Bulbasaur when playing Red or Blue...this means nothing to me. Squirtle and Bulbasaur would just crush them in two attacks.

@Dember: Bide allows you to deal twice as much damage as you were dealt. If you dealt a fair amount of damage to a Pokemon that has activated Bide but fail to defeat it in the three turns it takes for the move to take effect it will obliterate your Pokemon. Never attack while Bide is active unless you are absolutely sure that you can defeat said Pokemon in those three turns.

@Guest: ...Y-yes, this..isn't exactly my first ball game. I think there might have been some misunderstanding here.
I've been an avid pokemon player for over fifteen full years back from a gameboy color and onward, and I definitely do know the logistics of the vast majority of the attack moves.
Of course I know *now* what "Bide" does, but at the time when there WAS no guide to explain any of it such as around 1998 - thus leading me to replace Flamethrower with Fire Spin because, hey, in the show, it looked a LOT more powerful.
You generally learned by experience at this time, and during my playthroughs, I happened to always knock out Bide-using pokemon long before that move got a chance to do anything.
I will openly admit, I never had any idea, at the time, that it was actually some kind of "be a doormat for a few turns and then *ttly hammur yore ohponunt*" attack.
On the contrary, I clearly recall wasting that TM on one of my weaker pokemon just to test it out and see if it would work properly for mine, and the weak pokemon was KO'd in those turns before it could respond.
Ergo, I considered it a move you might use if you genuinely did not want your pokemon to attack, such as if you were just waiting for Poison to take effect or similar.
In fact, "bide" meant "wait" when I looked it up in confusion, so that seemed plausible to my six or seven year old self.
I'm sorry if I gave you the impression that I might be some kind of "pokeyman noob", but I wasn't trying to imply that I was still ignorant of what that move was meant to do. That would be why I said "was I the only one who genuinely believed", past-tense.
Thank you for the descriptive explanation though, I'm sure that if anyone else was unsure, they will better understand it now. c:
