Ask a Question Thread - READ FIRST POST

Discussion in '6th Gen' started by Ragnarok, Sep 9, 2013.

    Ask a question about competitive Pokemon here; be it what Pokemon would fit well on the last slot of my team, what is the best way to counter Lucario, what is the most effective EV spread for my Wacan Berry Gyarados, etc. If you have an actual set for a Pokemon that you want feedback on, use the Comptitive Singles Rate Thread. Don't flame/insult someone if you think it is a silly question. Have fun and ask away!

    Does Goodra get any recovery moves other than Rest?

    P.S. the link for competitive singles rate thread leads to the Gen V thread.

    ChaosBlizzard Crit Happens.

    Based on the current version of the Pokedex, it gets Absorb at Level 5, but otherwise, no.

    _ _ _

    Is there some place I could see some sort of preliminary tier listing for all the tiers? I know nothing is even close to complete yet since we don't even have a fully complete/accurate Pokedex yet, but I'd just like to get a feel for where everything is falling.

    Could you possibly post a link to that? I'm interested in taking a look at that, but I can't seem to find it. :/

    Edit: Never mind, I just found it :)

    Can the ability capsule give a pokemon it's hidden ability? Or only it's usual abilities?

    You cannot change it to a hidden ability, if I'm not mistaken. Otherwise, Snow Warning Aurorus and Rock Head Tyrantrum would be readily available right now.

    I'm looking to make a team of Eeveelutions. Should I bother getting 6 perfect IV's or no?

    Physical attackers can completely ignore the Special Attack IV, and Special Attackers can ignore the physical Attack IV (unless they're looking for a certain type of Hidden Power). Other than that, frail, fast Pokemon don't overly mind having low IVs in HP/Defense/Sp. Def, and some tanks don't mind having low Speed (some even want low Speed to power up moves like Gyro Ball).

    What is the IV spread for Hidden Power (Fairy)?

    I understand this might be an annoyance, but I'd really appreciate it if someone would lend a hand (or an arm).

    I can't help myself. I've got so many pokemon I want on my team, but I'm not sure what to do.


    I'm not too into the competitive scene, but if I get random challenges while roaming the map, I'd at least like to put up a decent enough fight. I'd also like a team that is fun to use not just in competitive, but the actual game too. I know most people wouldn't want to do this, and I understand if nobody does, but I'd appreciate it if somebody could lend a hand.

    Alright, so let's narrow this down a bit. Remember these are only my opinions and speculations, take everything with a grain of salt.

    Comments are in blue.

    So do you think:


    would be decent enough for me to not lose 10/10 times? I'm still a bit iffy on it, but part of me still says it sounds fun.

    So, I'm trying to breed a Male Meowstic with Trick

    So far I don't know of any other Pokemon of the Field egg group that learn it in this generation that didn't get it from move tutor last generation.

    What do I breed to get Trick on Espurr?

    Sorry if I posted this question in the wrong forum but this is for a competitive team and I didn't see a 6th gen breeding forum.

    Which Mega seems to be the most effective right now? I'm thinking Mega Kangaskhan and Mega Gengar but I'm not too sure.

    It's all relative, since most Megas fulfill a different role it's hard to effectively compare them to each other. Gengar is a great trapper and offensive pivot, Kangaskhan works well as a counter to a lot of different threats and a late game clean-up sweeper. Charizard's Megas tend to be extremely dangerous, in part due to its unpredictability since you can't tell which form it's using until it actually Mega Evolves.

    Hi guys, I'm fairly new to Competitive stuff, and I need a lead for this team I want to try out: Mega Ampharos (ftl), Aegislash, Togekiss, Starmie and Volcarona. I'll probably also need help with items and I'm not yet willing to change any of the pokemon I've got without a Very good reason, (I'd rather do that without help once I have more experience in battles).

    EDIT: Volcarona can be changed, maybe for a Wish passer (Vaporeon) or something...

    Just wondering on the competitive Ratings battle system on the battle spot, is it possible to do 6 V 6 Teams?
