Been playing some Pokémon Emerald again. Made it to the Elite Four but still need to train up my team some more.

How do y'all pronounce Venusaur, just curious? My first exposure to Pokémon was Super Smash Bros. Melee, so I've always pronounced it "Venn-uh-saur" as the Poké Ball pokémon Venusaur says it in-game (which also makes more sense to me since the etymology is presumably venom + dinosaur), but most folks I know who grew up watching the anime say "Vee-noo-saur", which sounds weird to me.

Also, how do y'all say Mightyena? I always saw it as "Mighty-anna" as a kid, not understanding the etymology, and still say it that way. But it's probably supposed to be "Might-eye-ena" or something like that.

I also used to pronounce Rayquaza "Ray-kwah-zah" but now say "Ray-kway-zah" since that's CLEARLY more accurate (ray + quasar).

venusaur = venus fly trap + dinosaur, what the fuck is a vennosaur

i kept saying mighty-eena because mighty hyena but i've heard mighty-enna so i think it's a tomato/tamato kinda thing

raykwayza is the only way to say that anyone else is a bastard who needs to be thrown out the window

arceus is a fucking abominable one, since ark-eus is technically correct but i always went like arse-eus as a kiddo

I'm not really sure what to say here, but I do enjoy playing Pokemon casually. Pokken Tournament is also fun as well.

Ar-see-us was actually the intended English pronunciation; it's used by the in-game announcer in Pokémon Battle Revolution on the Wii, which was released several years before Arceus was officially revealed but is compatible with all gen 4 Pokémon. It's believed to have been changed once it was officially revealed because it had "arse" in it. Ark-ee-us makes enough sense, but I still think Ar-see-us sounds better.

Also I guess venus fly trap + dinosaur makes sense, though I'll probably keep saying Venn-uh-saur.

How do you make your own team aside from building a team that covers all the weakness of each Pokemon? When I make my own Pokemon team, I always have Fire, Water, Grass, Fighting, Psychic and Electric type in each Pokemon teams I do. When one type is replaced by another type, (e.g. Ground type is replaced by Psychic type) I'm always knocked down by trainers. Any tips for me?

Here's my tip for you, add some variety to your 6 member Pokemon team. That's what i do

Is anyone excited about Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon? Although the games look well-made, I don't really care about them.

When I was a kid, I pronounced Rayquaza as "Ray-kway-za", but started pronouncing it as "Ray-kwa-za" because that's how all my friends pronounced it. Silly me, I had it right the first time, but I felt like people would try to correct me if I prounounced it as "Ray-kway-za", and I didn't want to put up with it.

Try to choose types that have fewer weaknesses in general (and weaknesses of move types not very many Pokémon have), such as electric, ghost, dark, fighting, dragon, and steel-types. Try to also give your Pokémon versatile movesets and items with multiple types of moves and don't use HM slaves. (For example my Gardevoir in Emerald has Calm Mind, Flash, Shock Wave, and Psychic). I like to balance my Pokémon with one HM/field move, one status attack, and two differently-typed damaging attacks. Also in general I just grind up to five levels above what other trainers are at for gyms and Elite Four

I don't usually do level grinding, that's maybe the reason why I only rely on type match-ups, although I keep my Pokémons only 5 levels below on what trainers use in early game and 10 levels below in late game. I also have HM slave, usually water type, in all of my teams. I'll try to follow what you've said. Thanks for the tip!

I was the same way, and I actually use both pronunciations from time to time. The same goes for Arceus, although I prefer ARRRRRR-C-Us, especially when I want to sound like a British pirate.

Just realized that having two water-type Pokemon in the party can prevent from having an HM slave.

It works quite nicely too since one's secondary type is Ice and one's is flying because then you have four HMs between the two plus two other moves for each of your choice

Here's my team for my Emerald playthrough and yes I grinded a lot, and used the Elite 4 to evolve Pokemon's for the pokedex and during my playthrough, I caught every single pokemon in each route to make my Dex progress easier, then I moved on.

Well rounded team overall. Great coverage, even with countermeasures against the types your team is more weak to, specifically the bug or fighting types where Walrein and Gardevoir can take them on respectively.
