I started my game over (again) and I am having trouble finding a good Water type. I was going to
use Starmie; but I found a Ralts with a Modest nature, and I'm not about to pass that up :frustrated: .
Any watery suggestions?

If you're playing Sapphire, Lotad is a good one. :)

Which stage of the game are you at? Also, you might want to list the rest of your team members. There are quite a few dual-type Water Pokemon as you have mentioned one example in Starmie, so doing so would help us help you make a decision =p

If all goes well, not including my water type, I should have the following:

{blaziken}
{magneton}
{gardevoir}
{flygon} or {graveler}
{cacturne}

Also, I happen to be in Dewford; I just defeated Brawly.

Let's see... you already have a Fire, Electric/Steel, Psychic, Dragon/Ground, and Dark/Grass.
So you should not pick a Water type which has a second type that matches one of these.

This eliminates Pokemon such as Swampert, Sharpedo, Ludicolo, and Whiscash.

Given that you are playing Hoenn, I'll not suggest Pokemon that you can't catch in the region, given also my assumption that you can't trade. Milotic, if you can find Feebas, Walrein, or Lanturn are possible choices.

OK - I am nearing Lilycove now. I also ended up with a slightly different team - this is
what I currently have:

{kirlia}
{magnemite}
{nosepass}
{linoone}
{cacnea}
{combusken}

I'll replace Linoone with some water type.

Maybe I'll try Walrien like you said, or maybe a Relicanth lol

Location: I am inside your soul. It's actually really comfortable in here.
Well, first of all, your team currently has a weakness to fighting, because Magnemite, Nosepass, and Cacnea (when it evolves into Cacturne) are all weak to fighting moves, so you shouldn't use Pokémon weak to fighting, like Relicanth and walrein. Milotic is probably the best choice. Might I suggest using Flygon instead of Nosepass? That would take away your weakness to fighting, and then Milotic could be in your last slot.

Well, first if all, Flygon is not a particularly easy Pokemon to raise until Trapinch evolves into Vibrava; it's not worth it in my opinion.
Second, Flygon has a 4X weakness to Ice, a much more common type in Emerald than Fighting.
Yes, I'm playing Emerald. My Gardevoir will take care of Fighting types, as well as a Skarmory I have in the Daycare.

Secondly, I can't use Milotic because you can't get the must-have Pamtre Berry til AFTER the E4.
I need my water type BEFORE the E4. Even if I do find Feebas, I'm stuck with it until I unlock the
word "CONTEST" in the vocabulary. That leaves Walrien, Relicanth, and Wiscash.

And thirdly, this is an experiment with un-commonly used Pokemon. (forgot to mention that >.<)
Using Milotic and Flygon defeats the purpose of it.



Somebody help me off my soapbox please.

Gorebyss/Huntail or Kindra? Gyarados would boost your team against Fighting, but I assume you don't want to use it...

The Psydex has a search function - here's a list of water pokemon

Actually you could use Hondew (or berries around there), in fact I usually use those for evolving Feebas if it's not a contest pokemon.

I would think about Huntail, Gorebyss, or Kingdra, and would probably prefer them.
But, I can not trade with anyone until my friend finds his Ruby version, or buys a new one.

That's a good idea though- And I didn't think of Hondew Berries.
(I must be lazier than I thought...)

Admittedly I did want to try out Milotic before, but didn't have the patience.

By the way, where exactly is the Hondew Berry? I know it's on Route 119, but where exactly is it on route 119?

idk for sure, there are several berry patches on Route 119. You could try looking at all of them. According to the Psydex, you can also get them from the Berry Master by chance.

I can't recall exactly, but can't you find it on Route 119, as in, growing on the soil there?

Just wanted to point out where those soil patches are...
1. Just west of Fortree City.
2. Right above the weather institute, but you need waterfall to get there.
3. Under the long bridge.

I think it's on the third one I mentioned but don't take my word for it, it's been about a year and a half since I picked them. :lol:

For a map of the route click here.

Hope that this helped,
~Kamikaze

EDIT: They are on the 2nd spot, right above the weather institute: Check here.

Ok thanks guys! I've decided on Walrien, and so far it's turned out great!
I might give Flygon another chance too, though. Or maybe Armaldo.
Thank you so much! You have saved me a lot of headaches.

(As well as boosted my post count :mrgreen: )

Here lies another thread,
That was alive and now is dead,
there's nothing more to be said.


The question has already been answered.
