    I think Skarmory works well as Falkner's ace tbh, I dunno if you wanna count the Adventures manga, but in that manga he has a Skarmory and he fashions the Skarmory's shed feathers into super sharp boomerangs instead of swords which is dope in my opinion.

    Hello MandJTV. I would like give a few suggestion that may help your channel. First of all, you can try and make an ORAS soul link gameplay with PokeMEN7 or Purplecliffe. A soul link is a gameplay where 2 players must have a team where 2 pokemon must be paired by the route they catched. You can watch Gameboy Luke for examples of soul link. I also want to request a gameplay “Can You Beat Pokemon ORAS With Only A Sceptile” since sceptile is your favourite pokemon. I hope you consider these suggestions that I made. Keep on the hard work. Thank you.

    Fun fact: The third version (Emerald, Crystal, etc.) is considered the true version by game freak. So the gym leader's with a different team in the third version are using their true teams.

    If Gallade didn't exist until Gen 4, shouldn't you have suggested something different for the twin gym leaders, at least in the original games; since Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, are Gen 3 games. You could have suggested them in ORAS though, since they're Gen 6 games.

    I have to disagree with claiming Scizor would be too strong to fight in Johto; Scizor and Scyther have the same BST; Scizor simply trades off about 40 points in its speed, for 20 points in attack and 20 points in defense; as well as giving up Flying type for Steel type... HOWEVER... You CAN make Scyther more difficult if you use the Eviolite hold item; effectively making both of its 80 base defensive stats pushed up to 120. But unless its part of a gimmick, gym leaders dont use hold items except for restoration berries.. So giving Bugsy Scizor makes perfect sense; and would give us a glimpse at a cool new pokemon early in the game.
