Why don't we have more combo moves like the Grass/Fire/Water pledge moves having a field effect when combined?
It would make doubles and triples a lot more interesting, it would maybe give some use to some of the moves with low BP and it'd make VGC a lot more varied.
I dunno, they usually come off as gimmicky because... they are.
You could technically count things like Helping Hand + Attack or Beat Up + Justified as combos too, and they're usually more creative that way anyways.
You seem to have made a bit of a mistake in your post. Luckily, the users of 4chan are always willing to help you clear this problem right up! You appear to have used a tripcode when posting, but your identity has nothing at all to do with the conversation! Whoops! You should always remember to stop using your tripcode when the thread it was used for is gone, unless another one is started! Posting with a tripcode when it isn't necessary is poor form. You should always try to post anonymously, unless your identity is absolutely vital to the post that you're making!
Now, there's no need to thank me - I'm just doing my bit to help you get used to the anonymous image-board culture!
They're gimmicky because they're the only moves in the game that can be combined to have a secondary affect.
If GF added a lot more moves, or edited some of the previous ones to include secondary effects like these, then they wouldn't be gimmicky.
>hahahahahahaHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA LE BUTTSCAB MEEEEEEEEEEME MEEEEEEEEEEME
please fuck off back to reddit.
I don't know why you thought this site would accept you and your pathetic lifestyle. We're a proud and honorable people, and live by a certain set of rules. Violate those, and you can fuck off right out the goddamn door.
This is the last time I'm saying this. After that, well, you'll see what happens when you cross us true 4channarians.
Aight. Did y'all lil' nigglets not get this shit the first time?
Fuck off you little pussy whipped niggerfaggot, I can and will ram you back up your mom's vagina and make her pregnant with 30 children
Wanna step to me white boy? lol ya boy packing 350 pounds of pure muscle and 88 inches in height. post your chest faggot
I sure am glad /trash/ exists now, its the perfect habitat for teenagers like you
I don't think they decided that. I think the doubles format was imposed by TPCi (they actually state that's it's because time constraints), so the format in general is just another gimmick for Game Freak.
nice memes /b/ro
truth hurts huh?
if you want to take your opportunity to rule /vp/ dare to use a tripcode too, oh right you betas can't do so! haha pathetic how someone can be triggered by someone who uses something to be recognized with or is richer, more famous and so on and getting incoherent hatred because of that...
i like buttscab aka brett and i think he's one of the few good things this board was blessed with after the anime discussion threads that are helped in being costantly alive thanks to /a/ and /v/ crossboard posters, seriously, think about it and how you are wrong on this matter
i bet you are the same trollposter that spam the pokemon anime generals with non canon ships and pornographic content from mature sites
lol fuck off buttscab, you have 8th grade in the morning
