Well I did some major revisions to the article - I'm hoping someone will give me the OK to remove the cleanup tag. Kochdude388 04:19, 8 July 2007 (UTC)

According to Marriland's F.A.Q. on the video, "F.E.A.R." also stands for "F@#king Evil Annoying Rodent". If someone could figure out a family-friendly way of saying that on the main article, I think it's a major part of the original name... -- Jioruji Derako.> 13:04, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
How about Freaky Evil Annoying Rodent? MacGyver 16:34, 26 August 2007 (UTC)


How does the Marrilanad vid apply to the article? I know he uses FEAR in that vid, but still... Its like advertising for Marriladnd. Which isn't encyclopedic.

Marriland is/was a big factor on the popularity of the archetype, I believe. It's not just a random link to some guy using F.E.A.R., it's a link to the most popular video of all time that just happens to use F.E.A.R. in it. Advertising for a guy isn't Wiki-like, true; but giving at least one source for a particular bit of knowledge is. I personally don't see the link as much of an "advertisement" in the first place... -- Jioruji Derako.> 04:43, 20 July 2007 (UTC)
It's there because that is the battle that made F.E.A.R famous. --Shiny Noctowl ---Find the secret page!--- 12:15, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Its advertising for him, they could make a list of noteable trainers with FEAR, but it is pointing out one person. I can't really explain it that well.

Where do you get a Focus Slash? --Ryguy 8:28, 28 August 2007 (EST)

Focus Sash? I believe you can trade battle points for it up by the Battle Tower in D/P. -- Jioruji Derako.> 02:08, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
Route 221, show a guy in a house a Pokémon the level of the 1 he wants to see. Next day, do the same thing. The third day, do it again. The frst time, you'll get a Black Belt. The second time, another Belt that powers up Super Effective attacks, I can't remember what it's called. Third time, Focus Sash. - Jonah 22:08, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

oh, thanks Ryguy

The belt that powers up super-effective attacks is the Expert Belt. --Shiny Noctowl File:376MS.gifFind the secret page!File:224MS.gif The oboe is the best instrument ever! 00:23, 30 August 2007 (UTC)

Pursuit

Wouldn't a rattata with Focus Sash, Endeavor, Pursuit, Quick Attack counteract switching out... obviously this is very risky but the opponent would then not know what to do whether to switch out or not...--Wowy 07:21, 28 July 2008 (UTC)

But then how do you guess if they'll switch out or stay? If they stay and you use Pursuit, then they'll hit first and kill you. If they switch out and you use Quick Attack, at least now you can still switch out and save yourself. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 08:54, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
That's why it's risky but most people would know about the Quick Attack not the pursuit and will rather switch out than attack first...--Wowy 11:30, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
Or they could counter with...another first strike move. Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links13:25 5 Sep 2008
Best option is to just use a non-damage-dealing move at first (Swords Dance, Recover, whatever), and just let the F.E.A.R. sit there. Or if the Pokémon has Toxic, that's another not-quite-instant-kill.
Either way, it's super-easy to counter a F.E.A.R. Pokémon. It comes down to luck no matter what, normally. Pursuit could be useful, if you're against someone who knows a little about the F.E.A.R. strategy, but doesn't have a good counter. Quick Attack will generally be more useful, seeing as F.E.A.R. will work best against a player who doesn't see it coming (and thus, might not think to switch out). -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 13:57, 6 September 2008 (UTC)


I call it: S.A.F.E.!

Well, the article said that Starly can be used also. I tried it, and used it as well! I call it "SAFE"! Well, it means [S]tarly, Quick[A]ttack, [F]ocus Sash and [E]ndeavor! Palkia38 09:25, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Not enough info

This article is not very informative about what exactly makes up a F.E.A.R. Pokémon... maybe its just me not paying enough attention. KPF 20:31, 27 November 2008 (UTC)
