    BF tricks and tips-For beginners



    So, I'll present tips and tricks for the BT here.

    A lot of threats roam the BF. The ones I struggle with are (with counters) are:
    Magnezone-Garchomp with Earthquake
    Garchomp-Kingdra with Draco Meteor/Ice Beam tank Blissey
    Lairon/Aggron-Stalling back with Blissey/Earth Power Tanked Heatran
    Ninjask-Ninjask with Toxic and Aerial Ace
    Flygon-A speedy staller, preferably an Ice Beam Blissey that knows Toxic, or like countering Garchomp, a Draco Meteor Kingdra

    ~Good Items~
    There are a few decent items you can use, notably these (if you can use them right, I've included the best ways to use them)
    Life Orb-Good for the annoying Pokémon, as well as using it with Toxic/Will-O-Wisp in Double Battles to beat up all Sashers (yes, all of them pretty much)
    Flame Orb-You can use this to either Psycho Shift burns onto enemies, only the fact that when used with Guts, your Attack is still down a stage, but you still get the Facade boost.
    Toxic Orb-Like Flame Orb, but better for competitive really, as you can deal more Facade damage with Guts and all, and Jirachi (in competitive) can Trick and not be Poisoned if something goes wrong.
    Choice Items-Not much to say. Only if you need to hurt your opponent bad, use them. If you have a need for speed, use a Scarf. If you love power, Choice Band for Physical, Choice Specs for Special, Scarf for tricking/speed (as above)
    Leftovers-Use for tank support.
    Plates-If you're using a set such as:
    Electivire@Zap Plate
    Rain Dance
    Thunder Wave
    As you can see, the set runs on Thunderbolt and Thunder. This is more of a Tank-Vire in a way, so no Life Orb, Choice Items ruin you, Damp Rock may be useful, but this shows how useful Plates can be, so it's just an example, you get it?
    Muscle Band/Wise Glasses-If you want a Life Orb for 1 category, use these. The Muscle Band increases Physical power, the Wise Glasses for special. The catch is that you don't lose HP, these items are really useful.

    ~Trick Room~
    Trick Room, a move to make slow Pokémon go super-speed, and fast Pokémon slower than that PMD2 team of Slowpoke and Slakoth (credit to who can tell me their team name, I think it's Team Slacker)
    Basically, don't add Weavile in here, as poke_noob already said to use Weavile over Umbreon in a Trick Room team, he did something wrong. Anyway, Ninjask (the fastest Pokémon in the BF) will be slowest, so you want Pokémon like:
    Dragonite (kinda)
    And many more...

    And also with that, you need at least 2 Pokémon with TR, the best are:

    This is the average TR set (with a little strength) for Slowbro to end this post:
    Slowbro@Wise Glasses
    Trick Room
    Thunder Wave
    Not too average, not too shabby. That will do when you add custom EVs and all.

    So, I hope this gets stickied, peace out.

    Wow, best guide for the Battle Frontier anywhere. You've changed my perspective on Pokemon entirely. You are a GOD.

    Seriously, A: this guide is bad and B: it's unneeded with all the other guides already around. Seriously, Terry, you're a brilliant troll, but a really bad guide writer.

    -I tried to show how the BF works, and this cleans up all Vappy didn't.
    -I'm in Extension for English.
    -Year 7. EPIC.
    -Cyberbullying is illegal. Why do you think jails are getting crowded? 'Cos of people like you.
    -Shiny trainer, as I said earlier, let me. She'll infract you if you troll. I ain't.
    -Again, this shows how you can skill.
    -I'm ill, so I'm bad tempered. UGH.

    I'm sorry Terry, but I totally agree with Ungulate. You obviously don't know what you're talking about. That Electivire is completely horrible, you have no EVs, and you obviously don't know what a counter is.

    Kingdra is not a Garchomp counter!

    With all due respect, Terry, I think you ought to leave stuff like this up to the more experienced players. Like you said, you're young (your profile says 11, and you said year 7, so I'm guessing that's about right), and probably haven't been around Pokemon as long as we have.

    For one thing, those threats you listed may be threats to YOUR team, but not necessarily to other people's teams. For example, a hearty Bullet Punch from my Scizor one-shots all of them except Magnezone.

    I'm actually glad you posted something about items, which I forgot to do in my guide, but your descriptions are a little insufficient. And there are more items to be considered, as well as better ways to explain their uses.

    And including a list of Pokemon that learn Trick Room is... I don't know, random. I don't see how that really matters unless you're making a Trick Room guide, which this isn't :-/

    From what I see, I used that Electivire to demonstrate the Zap Plate, it's a set I stole from PBR in a battle. Otherwise I'd use Cress for that, its bulk makes it crave power (kinda) and when I use Kingdra, one Draco Meteor=Death.

    Flaaffy-Yes, it can be seen in the late BT. Ampy said on his wall (I think) that Flaaffy's the most common Pokémon in the BT.

    And they were my threats, I share.
    Get it?

    You hack, right? Snorlax gets SelfDestruct, not Explosion. You wish...
    No, that didn't help. Lurk more.

    ^That's what you need to do. Lurk. It's threads like this that show you understand next to nothing about the BT. Just stop already, for the sake of everyone's sanity.

    the only good thing here is this:
    items as V4E left them out but he rest isnt that good.
    no offence and i know im not brilliant either but i think im better than you with making and rating teams
  11. Terry. T.

    Terry. T. One and Only...

    Yeah, agreed. But my rates are improving.
    And Eon Master, I will stay. No use persuading me, I bet you and co. have been infracted AT LEAST 3 times because of me (I am positive Ampy has)
  12. Eon Master

    Eon Master Born from the Flames

    ^Oh joy *sarcasm*
    And I've never been infracted because of you. You know why? It's because the mods don't like you any better than we do.
  13. Terry. T.

    Terry. T. One and Only...

    Still, the mods do. *points to Shiny Trainer's profile*
    She let me pull this stunt, and SapphireL, don't know her really.
  14. Eon Master

    Eon Master Born from the Flames

    ^Shine is a guy. He's not happy with you, and Lydia isn't either. That's the reason why none of us have been infracted. No one has.
  15. Terry. T.

    Terry. T. One and Only...

    Anyway, Shine said to make the thread and when he gets here, he has a good chance of sticking it as it has helped, I've seen loads of guests come here, then PM me on YouTube saying it's a good guide, I now have 83 subscribers, at least 15 to this guide. Epic...
  16. Eon Master

    Eon Master Born from the Flames

    Right... I totally believe every word you say *sarcasm*
    Terry, shut up. You are quite possibly the worst trainer I've ever seen, and that's saying quite a lot.
  17. Terry. T.

    Terry. T. One and Only...

    Yeah, that's why most people hated poke_noob, anyway, go look at some ofd my shoddy battles, I have won a few...
  18. Eon Master

    Eon Master Born from the Flames

    He doesn't even count. Poke_noob was so stupid I'm questioning wether he had a mental retardation problem. You are nearly as bad as he was.
    Also, winning a few shoddy battles isn't an accomplishment. If you had any kind of reasonable Shoddy streak, I'd believe you.
  19. Terry. T.

    Terry. T. One and Only...

    My win streak is 3:1, my best streak is 5, I've done about 40 battles.
    If I can beat at least 3 Pokémon in OU Shoddy against you, you'll believe me, right? You're so good at rating, you'll thrash me.
  20. Eon Master

    Eon Master Born from the Flames

    ^Sorry, I only play UU matches. OU is overpopulated with people who have no clue what they're doing. If you have a UU Team, we'll battle.
