How has Fawn been? Been a little while since I really caught up with you. Episode of StriatonRadio I was on uploaded. People keep pulling me to their threads by PM just to rate them. Didn't think I was doing that great a job. Apparently it's because I don't speak down to people that badly (how one person put it).
Yeah. I haven't really been playing much lately either (at least not competetively). I've been reading a few good books. I did also get to participate in the StriatonRadio podcast lol. How are you holding up?
I love getting a surprise KO on an OU with an NU lol. It's great because too many people undervalue hidden gems. Means I get a few surprise victories myself. Although, I've also been sorely beaten for my quirkiness too -_-
That's cool. I try to avoid a DD set. Usually when I use a DD set, someone swaps in something with Mach Punch and messes me up because they know I'm about to start set up (and take advantage of it). Depending on the metagame, I use a Gem. I've messed up a few Conks with Water Gem, Rain boosted Crab Hammer... and even scored a few lucky crits. My friend only assumed I was using a choice band because I didn't use DD. Knocked out his Jelli and left a spaceship sized dent in his Scrafty too. He really should have opted for Drain Punch over Hi Jump Kick XD
Meh. I've gone as far as beating Jelli with a Crawdaunt. My friend wasn't too happy that I reminded him that he used a ghost type to counter a dark type lol. He thought my Crawdaunt was choiced into Crabhammer. I was actually sporting a Dark Gem XD lol
It's a gamble. Since most put EVs into defense, it can take a little more punishment. The fact Tentacruel can learn Giga Drain gives it somewhat of an edge. Add also that it outrun Azumarill. At the end of the day though, I think Aqua Jet / Waterfall would score more damage on Tenta anyway (condering it's not immune like Jellicent is).
I did too. But I only did it because someone told me "it hits really hard. Like a tank". So I tried it. Turned out they were right lol. Better yet, Waterfall hit even harder lol. And then.... it met it's first Jellicent -_-
lol, it is a beast in that regard and a great toxic wish staller. It's also great for passing on big wish heals to it's team. Sad it's similar to blissey in lacking offense. And unlike blissey, it doesn't get a seismic toss equivalent It's still fun to use btw, thank you for the post. Your suggestion was something I was already testing and it does work better.
