    How about this?

    Dragonite @ Life Orb
    Modest Nature
    -Flamethrower
    -thunderbolt
    -Surf
    -Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor

    Yeah I know.. you guys are probably thinking "why the heck does he want to make Dnite a special sweeper" or "why the hell didn't he use salamence instead"

    I think this set is the element of surprise. Even though his attack is his highest stat, His SPA isn't BAD at all and I think this set could be pulled off. Yes, I know Salamence pretty much outclasses Dnite but that doesn't mean Dnite isn't good or useable and I still love this orange colored barney more. :)

    How's this Crustle?

    Salamence doesn't get Surf or Thunderbolt though. It has to use the less reliable abeit more powerful Hydro Pump instead of Surf and if it wants an Electric attack, it has to use Hidden Power Electric while Dragonite can use the more powerful Thunderbolt so no, Salamence doesn't completely outclass Dragonite as a Special Attacking Dragon or as a Dragon period. You just shouldn't really be using Dragonite as if it were Salamence. Hydreigon however is better than both as a Special Attacker and it trades Thunderbolt for a STABed Dark Pulse or Earth Power (I say or since it can't use Earth Power and Dark Pulse on the same set since both moves are Egg moves from different parents in the same breeding group).

  4. Salamence doesn't get Surf/Bolt, so it is more like why didn't he use Hydreigon and replace TBolt with Earth Power?

    Any good movesets for a non-bred 5th gen Blastoise?

    Irisfatum The Sleepy Trainer

    Lucario @ Life Orb
    Ability: Inner Focus/Justified
    Nature: Naive
    EVs: 252 Speed / 128 Atk / 128 SpAtk
    -Work Up
    -Extremespeed
    -Aura Sphere
    -Dark Pulse

    Just wondering if something like this would be a viable set...or if it would just be better for me to stick with either Swords Dance or Nasty Plot.

    @mychremo,
    Blastoise only really gains Rain Dish in the 5th generation, so a 4th generation set would be fine. But here is an intresting Rain Dance set:

    Blastoise @Leftovers
    Calm
    Rain Dish
    -Aqua Ring
    -Surf
    -Protect
    -Toxic

    It would obviusly need a source of Rain Dance on the team.

    I have a modest nature Cottonee, what should be its moveset/ EV set?

    And now, a Granbull set.

    Granbull@Life Orb
    Adamant
    Ability: Rattled
    EVs: 170 Hp, 252 Atk, 88 Spe

    - Double-Edge/Return
    - Close Clombat
    - Outrage
    - Crunch/Earthquake/Ice Fang
    Granbull doesn't seem to be used much, but I figured a good moveset could be made for it. Double-Edge is Granbull's strongest STAB, but Return is an option if you don't like the recoil. Close Combat beats down things like Ferrothorn, Lucario, and Excadrill. Outrage is there simply because it has a high power, not much resists it, and can possibly OHKO pokemon like Salamence or Hydreigon. The other moveslot is used for a filler, and for coverage. Life Orb>Choice Band because it lets you use more than one move. The EV spread allows Granbull to outspeed standard Machamp, who could possibly be a threat. Rattled is there just for the free speed boost, even though Granbull's speed is kinda iffy, and it doesn't take damage from ghost-type moves in the first place, but still, added speed is always nice.
     
  11. Cosmic Fury

    Cosmic Fury Evil Overlord

    Volcarona, raised from an egg. Haven't got the chance to breed one yet, so I gave it my best to raise this little fella.

    Level 75, Lonely Nature. Held Item: Charcoal

    Stats:

    229 HP
    151 Attack
    120 Defense
    237 Special Attack
    179 Special Defense
    191 Speed

    It knows Heat Wave, Psychic, Quiver Dance, and Bug Buzz.


    NOTE: This pokemon I plan on entering into competitive play once both it and my other five out of my team hit level 100.
     
  12. 123fakestreet

    123fakestreet Metalopolis King

    Be nice to know EVs not stats but it's ingame so what can I expect.

    Run fire dance or fire blast over heat wave. Otherwise fine.

    Another idea is rest, quiver dance, flamethrower and bug buzz with a chest berry.
     
  13. Beck

    Beck Soul Suckin' Jerk

    Let me know what you think of this Swampert?

    Swampert @ Leftovers
    Relaxed
    Torrent
    - Stealth Rock
    - Roar
    - Ice Beam
    - Earthquake

    He has a 240 HP/ 216 Def/ 52 SpD spread. He also has a 31 IV count in both HP and Defense. Is he a worthy lead Pokemon?
     
  14. Throhlurk

    Throhlurk Extremespeeder

    Stealth rock and roar aren't very good Ingame, so maybe use surf

    hey peeps im woundering if anyone can recomend a move set for my haxarous.

    its:

    haxarous@ ??? (unsure)
    nature: impish (+def, -sp.atk)
    ability: mold breaker
    EV 252 atk, 252 speed, 6 Hp

    outrage
    dragon dance
    ???
    ???

    im really unsure of the last two moves and its item. i was thinking earthquake to make use of its ability mold breaker (it does cancel out levitate dont it?) but the forth slot is undecided. it also has max IV's in speed and is considered relatively super by the judge.

    Yes, Mold Breaker cancels Levitate.
    Impish isn't exactly the best Nature for it, but since you are already EV training it and it has 31 Speed IV, I'm guessing you don't want to take the time to get another one with Adamant Nature.


    Haxorus
    Impish Nature
    ~Dragon Dance
    ~Dragon Claw
    ~Earthquake
    ~Rock Slide

    Outrage is not recommended alongside Dragon Dance, because after one or two D-Dance, when it hits itself on confusion, the damage may be enough to kill itself, since it is based on its own Attack (hence I mentioned D-Dance, because it raises Attack).





    Seviper
    Adamant Nature
    ~Coil
    ~Poison Jab
    ~Earthquake
    ~Dragon Tail

    Kerech Shinigami...CHOP!

    Lolololol double/triple status Stunfisk?

    Stunfisk @ Wise Glasses / Leftovers
    Nature: Modest
    Ability: Limber
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 Spe
    - Discharge
    - Earth Power
    - Scald
    - Sludge Bomb / HP[Fire]

    Lol @ ol' Fisky doing something. Discharge is STAB, and can induce paralysis. Earth Power is also STAB, lol. Scald keeps it alive against other Grounds, while using burn to cushion physical blows. Sludge Bomb was there as a counter to Grass types, as well as a way of inflicting poison upon those that cannot be burned, but HP[Fire] is also an option against Grass and Ice. Wise Glasses > LO / CS because it wants to keep its bulk and can't afford to be locked into a move. Lefties because Lefties (though EVs might have to be changed if Lefties). Whaddy'all think?

    Will-powered Spriter Pokédex Complete!

    Gah, I accidetaly sent over my Celebi prematurely, before it could learn Earth Power:

    It's modest, has Special Sweeper EVs, and knows Giga Drain, Psychic and Nasty Plot. I just need suggestions for the last move.

    It's Hidden Power is Electric, which I think is redundant with giga drain.
     
  19. Mr. Marowak

    Mr. Marowak was wrong about Gen6

    ^^ Good. If I liked Derpfisk, (did i type that?) I'd use it.

    Mandibuzz set, comin' Right up!

    Mandibuzz @ Lefties / Muscle Band (?)
    Careful/Adamant - Overcoat
    -Substitute
    -Roost
    -Taunt
    -Bone Rush/Night Slash/Brave Bird

    Sub & Roost for protection, Taunt to prevent setup, and an attack as a filler:
    Bone Rush to break Non-Flying Subs.
    Night Slash for a STAB with no recoil.
    Brave Bird for more power, but recoil, which could be risky.
    I suppose a special move, i.e Air Slash or Dark Pulse, could be thrown into the mix, but the nature and item would change, if you used Muscle Band.
