That used to be disappointing.

Haha, indeed.

Heheh, I've logged over 2000 hours on the various Pokemon games. I finally got bored of it, though, so now I've moved on to Digimon! 8-)

I don't get it.

Then you've never played Pokemon. In pokemon, you'd spend ages walking around. You'd follow this really really long track being hopeful that you've some secret area and then you find that there's a tree in the way and you can't get past. You need cut, but of course none of your pokemon have cut cos cut is a fairly useless move.

Then you've never played Pokemon.

Well duh.

Thanks for explaining though.

thanks flamey... I'm picturing some sort of Tree card to block a path, but I never played, only had friends that did and saw some of the cards. Is this from the online version, cards or both?

The video games (How many are there now?). It was like a giant maze, well that's what walking around was like.

Flamey January 6 2010 12:40 AM EST

This is just a comic depicting what happens about the game. The cards were based off the game, and the card game is simply battling whilst the game has a big adventure and RPG element to it. Basically Cut was a HM, which was special move/attack you could use outside of battle. Others included Flash (To light up dark caves), Strength (To move big boulders), Surf (to move on water) and Fly (teleportation to towns you've already visited).

Now considering the use of others (except flash), Cut was useless and you'd only put it on a temporary pokemon that you wouldn't keep in your party and would only use it when you know that where you need to go you need to cut a tree down.

Video games went 4th gen, and they redid 1st gen (fire red, leaf green was simply red/blue version remastered) and I believe they're redoing 2nd gen now (gold/silver)

I started with Blue, and played it up through to Crystal, the final game of the second generation. I always tried to get as many HMs as possible on one pokémon to avoid these kind of situations. Poliwhirl with Strength, Surf, Whirlpool and Waterfall, and then Farfetch'd with Fly, Cut and Flash. I wouldn't train them, of course, and save the experience for the four other pokémon I was using.

I only played it once, for like 3 minutes which was the exact time my younger cousin needed to go to the bathroom and get back having emptied his bladder =)

Good thing there's Bidoof now ;) the most useless pokemon ever except for usage as a HM slave!

Is there something wrong with my forum? Oddbird shows a blank post to me.

There was a picture, now it's gone somewhere.

Far worse is when you end up on level 3 of a cavern... and THEN you realize you need Strength to move a boulder. Ugh.

Especially since you have to fight a whole horde of Zubats/Geodudes on the way. (They give crap EXP!)

Zubats and Geodudes suck.

It's always great when you start with Charmander and the 2 first gym leaders are Rock and Water. Good thing you had catch a Caterpie and a Ratata on your way.
