I do not understand what you guys see in that Dratini. >__>

Bug types? Or has that been done? Bug types are awesome! =D

Bug types hasn't been done. And I second that suggestion o_O

Jul 2nd 2010 at 3:44:03 PM

I was gonna suggest Bugs too. c: Problem is, there are quite a few families so it would take a while.

I'll also suggest non-legendary Pokemon that have no evolutions or pre-evolutions.

^ Actually, I just did a quick sweep of Bulbapedia and I found 22 lines (21 if Volbeat & Illumise are grouped). We could do a straight plow-through as we have at times in the past, or would it be better to break the Bug-Type round up into consecutive Ladders (like we did in Round 17)?

The first option. Bug types are awesome enough to deserve a long round. cool

@the Captain: Oh, I do appreciate Dratini, and I rather like Dragonair, but the Horsies are excellent and, well, Altaria is love.
