• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

My phizical sweeper. Jolly is for other salamence, though i lose the OHKO on vaporeon (after DD). He can come in on a lot of things due to the yache.

This team is pretty self-explanitory and it really needs a replacement for heatran with the same kind of power, i'm thinking of togekiss but it onlty increases my team's weakness to ice. Anny sugestions?


I heart bug pokemon

*petal dances*
this team needs steath rocks so scizor can sweep with ease late game. maybe swap out lucario for another lead?

I am seriously debating sigging that.

Empoleon can work as a special sweeper, but his movepool is so shallow. There are better special sweepers. Latias, for example.
