    Mcdangers leaving. :O

    At least he'll come back sometimes. I think he should stay in the clan, I mean, we've got plenty of innactive members.

    Ug, just as I think Nikki was going to come back, Mcdanger leaves...
    That's why I find it such a fun item. :D I've used DDance Tyranitar with the air balloon before, it was able to get +1 or 2 on most gliscor thanks to that and ice punch.
    Wait for it's DW ability.

    252 HP/252 def?
    Sand Veil
    -Mud Slap?

    Remember the Garchomp/Thunder Wave T-tar combo? Here it is again, but it's in one pokemon.

    About time.
    Man, that fight with Orbrunner really hurt...I'm at 9 and orb is at 31.

    Well, I'll make sure I'm not on tilt in these next battles. I shall have my revenge.

    Hey guys...I just found out that mcdanger is leaving. I think we could all use a pick-me-up. Anyone have any ideas?

    In the meantime, I thought of something for Ninjask that many don't consider: Sweeping potential!

    Ninjask@Focus Sash
    Adamant nature (since Speed Boost makes it speedy anyway)
    EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
    -Aerial Ace
    -Swords Dance

    Bug is a type with decent coverage, and deals with the ever-so-common Darks and Psychics of the world. Aerial Ace is a Flying stab, and Dig works for steels (save Skarmory).

    There are flaws to it, sure, but you have to admit I'm on to something.
  15. i have tried a sweeper ninjask, doesnt work to well. better with baton pass, swords dance and 2 attacks, incase you hit a steel. swap dig for baton pass.
  16. Zachmac

    Zachmac Well-Known Member

    Even with STAB, aerial ace isn't a very good sweeping move without technician. It only has base 90 attack, so it'll be wall by too many pokemon, even at +2. I could list more reasons, but over all, it's just inferior to Scizor. Baton Pass is always the best way to go with ninjask. Give those boost to a bulky offensive pokemon like Metagross so they can tank and sweep at the same time.

    Guys im thinking this to replace my kecleon(who's crux is his snatch and magiccoat)
    Espeon(Timid or Gentle)
    Magic Bounce
    Leftovers or Shed Shell
    -Psych Up(espeon's snatch)
    -Calm Mind
    -Baton Pass

    Its basically my kecleon+1 move :p
  19. Jonah the Slaking

    Jonah the Slaking Couch-bound Warrior

    I don't know about Psych Up. If you have Calm Mind, why would you need to copy your opponent's boosts?

    Francis2580 Shedinja Ninja

    Bcoz u have no idea how many dragons with dragon types i run into xD
    Plus i loved the predictions that came with my
    Kecleon sooo yea its basically my kecleon in a new form
