    Profesco gone gently

    Alright, thanks, you two.

    This thought only occured to me after I'd already EVed Kangaskhan in Speed and HP, anyway, so to go back and increase the HP would have been a bit of a pain. Yes, I was thinking of how important the bulkiness of a Sub is when Focus Punching, too. But it's good to know that nothing with SToss is going to be a big threat, so thanks for that too.

    And it is a shame that it's not Jolly, but I caught it myself after a few hours in the Great Marsh, and didn't want to waste its good IVs. Since it's only going to have wifi opponents, though, maybe it'll have an easier time outpacing things than it would in the predictably statistical world of Shoddy.

    ...Or, I don't know. Do you guys think it would really be a better idea to try to catch/breed a Jolly one so it can beat offensive base 80s? =s

    I appreciate the advice. ^_^

    It really would be quite good to outspeed base 80s in UU since it's such a common speed, but if you go with a bulky Adamant Kangaskhan you should be fine.

    Hey, can someone help me devise the best EV spread for my 3 Crown Beasts? I plan to keep all the moves they came with.


    Raikou: 31 / 4 / 30 / 19 / 19 / 30
    Suicune: 0 - 2 / 14 / 7 / 2 / 1 / 16
    Entei: 1 / 12 / 8 / 0 / 29 / 11

    Thankyou :)

    I'm looking for a good lead to support a Raikou/Suicune duo with SR. Both will be setting up CM to sweep. Gengar and Scizor are looking at supporting them at the moment. Was thinking maybe Aerodactyl, what do you guys think?

    Well the four of those seem to have nice synergy so you can really use almost any lead really. A phazer might be nice, so Swampert is an option. Another Dragon resist is never bad, so Metagross could work. Aerodactyl is an option but I don't feel preventing SR from going up is essential atm since none of your Pokemon are SR weak or anything. You may want to use Roserade just for the fact it's more Blissey insurance.

    Quick question about L50 competitive play.

    Say I EV train up a Heatran that I caught at level 50. Does the L50 competitive play take into account my EV training, or because at level 50 Heatran had no EVs it doesn't?

    Is it the same, for example, a Palkia caught at L70?

    The level modification takes EVs into account, yes.

    I'm trying to build a UU team with an Ambipom that know nasty plot and baton pass as my lead. I was wondering which other pokemon in UU would benefit the most from nasty plot being baton passed so I could add them to my team.

    When in the battle tower and you get a 100 streak in the doubles do you get the star for your trainer card or can you only get that from the singles battles? I need to know this because I have a (so far) unbeaten doubles team.
  10. Magcargo96

    Magcargo96 I love this avvy

    My question is: Does somebody knows a good lead to use in the Battle Tower?
    I searched Smogon, but can't decide wich one to use...
    My Battle Tower team is currently: Heatran and Heracross.
    Thanks in advance!

    There are craploads really. Any special attacker which can't set up itself loves a Nasty Plot. Examples could be Milotic, Moltres, Ludicolo, Nidoking, Rotom, or Sceptile.
    Go to Ingame RMT.

    I've got a question about EV training: If you EV train a Kirlia, for example, in the Speed stat, you infect it with Pokerus, and you give it the Power Item. How much EV points will it gain after defeating a Raticate?, Which gives 2 EV points in Speed. Pokerus doubles the amount of points earned, and power item gives 4 extra points. So will it reaceive 12 EV points (2, Raticate + 4, Power item x 2, Pokerus = 12). OR it will receive 8 EV points (2, Raticate x 2, Pokerus + 4 Power Item = 8).

    So how will it be? How many points will it receive?

    Ok so I really want to use an Alakazam with Counter and I got one in a trade a while back and I want to know if its good enough for competitive battling: I'm not sure what the EV's and IV's are.

    Alakazam @ ????
    Hit Points: 243
    Atk: 98
    Def: 124
    Sp. Atk: 369
    Sp. Def: 177
    Speed: 371

    Shadow Ball

    I suspect 12.
    Counter Alakazam is really only useful as a lead, with the following set generally used:

    Alakazam @Focus Sash
    Synchronize | Timid | 4 HP/252 SpA/252 Spe
    ~ Psychic
    ~ Counter
    ~ Taunt/Encore
    ~ Signal Beam

    ok, i have a question about rotom formes. if i use rotom in a wi-fi club battle, will it stay as whatever forme i chose, or will it return to normal forme?
  16. palingensia

    palingensia amends

    I believe you need a cheat code to keep Rotom in its form for any variant of Wifi battling. Otherwise it reverts to normal Rotom.
  17. Vereist

    Vereist Amateur Breeder

    I have a hasty Rapidash that I want to use because it has HP Grass. It also has the ability of flash fire.

    The move-set I want to run is:

    Fire Blast, Megahorn, will-o-wisp, and HP Grass.

    Probably with the EV's set up for smogon's definition of a MixDash.
    So 4 attack / 252 spa / 252 spe.

    Opinions/Suggestions? They would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, I'm not that great with the metagame terminology. So please be a little patient with me, please.
    third times the charm with this question. I think I have the right place now. /sigh

    A +SpA nature would be so much better since 80 base SpA isn't fantastic by any means, but otherwise the set looks fine. You could run Toxic in the last slot for Milotic if you're playing UU, as HP Grass will do bugger all to it (ResTalk versions won't be harmed though).

    Out of curiosity, I'm wondering if Draco Meteor is viable on any Jirachi set.
    I know it won't work on a CM variant, but could it work on say, a choice scarf set?
  20. mattj

    mattj .

    I can only speak for my own experience, but as much as I've wanted to use it, every time I bring in a Jirachi, the majority of my opponents bring in another steel because, in general, steels wall most Jirachi's pretty well. I have HP Ground 70 on mine which helps some, but still, unfortunately (because I do so very much love to use it :3) DMeteor rarely finds use in my experience.
