Black White Alder
Hmm. Becoming stronger... Becoming stronger, you say... Is that alone enough of a goal? Hmmm. It's not that I'm trying to say your way of thinking is wrong... In my travels, I've helped many people learn to love Pokémon. I think that's important, too. If you play with those children, you might gain more of an understanding.

  • Lugia vs Alder

    • Lugia absolutely demolishes Alder with the AP gap and the fact that Shadow Storm hits both of Alder's pokemon at once + is super effective...
    • Right are the new conditions better, since the original ones were a bit stompy.
