Default Re: Poppy’s Breakfast Table: No Water Necessary

The way I've always figured it is that it would have just made things way too difficult in the game to make the water mechanics "real". Think about it, how far would you get if the only way to level your non-amphibious (amphibious here meaning able to walk on land, not frog-like) Pokemon was to be on the water? They would only be able to train with other swimming Pokemon and you would have a major disadvantage having a water-type before obtaining Surf. Not only that, but you would NEED to have a strong water Pokemon when you are using Surf because all your land Pokemon would be unable to battle.

Really, it's just always something that I end up thinking "how weird" when I'm playing and wondered if anyone else thought the same thing. XD
