hahaha, it's so funny against the game since they don't switch. same with Cloyster with Clamp. Although Clamp is a pretty good move anyway.
I've been using Rock Slide for the accuracy. I figure too many Pokes using Stone Edge on the same team is a bad omen, haha. It's still STAB and you can flinch every once in a while.
I Shoddy'd like a bunch over the last two days, and i'm in a bad streak. My team is needing a Fighting or Rock move, but i don't know where to put it.
Oh man, you do need at least one of both of those moves. Fighting moves aren't AS necessary if you have other counters for fighting weak Pokes like T-Tar and Blissey, but Rock is one of the best offensive types there is atm. I wouldn't put it on Gliscor because of his meh attack stat and lack of STAB, not sure who else you have. What are your other Physical guys again?
I need to rethink my strategy to taken down BP teams. Gliscor opening with Taunt is helping shut down every Ninjask Lead i've run into, since they're all the same.
There you go, Taunt is win.
Oh, NOW the truth starts to come out xD
Who knows, anything that is IV bred and EV trained is a candidate for battle I suppose.
Yeah, I did the calculation, and a max SpA Timid Latias Surf is a 3HKO on 248 HP / 0 SpD Scizor. So if they switch in a resisted attack like Ice Beam or Dragon Pulse, Scizor will eat Latias easily.
Well we have Shoddy, which at least three of us have, and we were suppose to make teams at L50, but we've been changing our teams around alot haha.
By the way, I've been meaning to tell you, the L50 part doesn't matter since we can L100 battle on Wi-Fi. I didn't realize that at the time, but if you do L100 singles, it's not a problem. Just like doing an IV battle, except actually battling. So, you can use anything you have EV trained and what not, regardless of the level.
My team is 'done', except I need to breed another Tyranitar. So technically I could do some test battles now, it just isn't 100% as good as it will be when I get a 31 HP / 31 SpD T-Tar that is Careful instead of Sassy. I finally was able to get ahold of another DS to tutor my Pokes.
That does sound pretty awesome. I'm not sure you need Flash Cannon since Aura Sphere covers everything it does except it gets Normal and Steel types. I might be missing something though.
You're correct, outside of Hidden Power, the last move is just filler. Dragon Pulse doesn't add coverage when you already have Aura Sphere / Shadow Ball, Water Pulse has too low of BP to really matter. Flash Cannon is probably the best filler b/c of STAB. What you really want in that spot is HP Rock or HP Ice. I am fortunate enough to have that broken Lucario with HP Rock, haha.
Hahaha it is kind of sick how badly i want to play this game. And you can trade as soon as you get the pokedex! I have to think of a team. I might have to go Scyther. I think i am going to go with Meganium as my starter.
Quit stealing my team :3
I think I might not use Meganium, since I have other Pokes that are defensive, and Meganium doesn't have that much utility in game. I think maybe I'll do DD/SD Feraligatr, but I have to work it out. Noctowl / Quagsire / Arcanine / Scyther / Feraligatr / ? is what I'm workin with now I believe. The '?' will be a special attacker with good coverage and appropriate typing. Just gotta figure out who that is xD
Edit: Just thought of Mismagius being a good possibility. I don't have those types of moves covered, he is fast, and has good immunities. I don't have a Dark resist, but I could replace Scyther with Heracross perhaps. Trying to keep this UU though.
Edit2: Still could be missing some move types, may have to rework this after I decide on sets. Some of the HG/SS Egg moves are crazy. Feraligatr gets Aqua Jet, and Mismagius gets Nasty Plot :o
