Default "Releasing Pokemon"

There are some pokemon some of us have in our stats that suck. So, instead of being afraid of having them whirlwinded or roared in, can we just have a thread where we say "I'm releasing [insert pkmn], not mine anymore"? And some of them are really hard to trade away.

I like the idea, but you could also let people claim them if the others don't want them. That might make new members happy.

:| Well not "giving" them too them, there should be a fee at least, because somebody not saying that they would,

P1:" I release Garchomp, I don't want im anymore"
NM: "OMFGG I GEettt GArrrCHump11"

Doesn't seem a bit fair. This was just an example, not saying it will happen.

True, well, a small fee to pay for the Pokemon. Meh, just throwing an idea. :P

I like it.

however, if someone chooses to claim it, then that person claims it. No "Well I released it and this other guy was going to get it, so you can't have it."

To be practical, I don't think anyone has so much Pokémon that they need that extra space in your stats, nor I like the idea of someone getting a Pokémon for free, no matter how crappy it can be.

They brought up the whole "giving it to someone else" thing. I simply suggest that we have a thread just to get rid of them. Again, would you want your Azumarill that you got back when you were a newb roared into an electric gym battle?

Certainly not as much as I'd like my Gyarados, if I had one.
The give-aways are supposed to be for giving presents for friends, not for getting rid of what you don't use anymore.
Based on the roar argument, though, I change my statement: It would be ok to delete Pokémon just like that, I guess, but not giving them to another trainer while not in a give-away event.

What about people who have Pokemon that realistically aren't extremely viable in serious battles, but they have them because they like them? I have a Teddiursa because it's one of my favorites, but I don't use it unless someone needs basic battles or something.

Same with my Unown, and Emma's Metapod. But in my opinion, just suck it up. If you want to have the Pokemon that badly, just accept that it could be Roared/Whirlwinded out.

I think one of the optional rules that can be used in battles (if both trainers agree) is the "Roar Clause". This would only be used in GSC, RSE, and PD rules.

Basically, you select 5 other pokemon that could be roared in. That way, you don't have to give up any pokemon and gym battles can be more fair.

It doesn't exist yet (feel free to discuss it in the mod board), but if it existed then I'd quote what Crazy said:
"But in my opinion, just suck it up."

Well, I guess it's a good idea, even though I find it a little odd that you'd give up a 'Mon that you might've written a story for, or got in a trade, which the person wrote a story for, or whatever. Point is, I'm okay with it, although I think we can go without it. :x

...Again I say, I'm not trying to make it so that we can give pokemon away. I've just talked to a lot of people who've said the same thing, "I can't get rid of this stupid -mon-." I don't want us to be able to give them away outside giveaways.

I could always suggest putting all your unwanted mons in a single post and then deleting that post. That way, us mods can still see it, and if you need to add more you could ask one of us to undelete it so you can add more.

Just a thought.
