    A major disadvantage to Hail teams is that only Ice-types are naturally immune to Hail damage, meaning that a lot of your team is bound to share a common weakness or two. This is not always the case, however. Walrein and Froslass are both Ice-types, and yet their other types keep them from having any common weaknesses.

    Stuff with Magic Guard or Overcoat is good for Hail teams, as they don't take Hail damage regardless of type. Alakazam, Sigilyph, Reuniclus, Mandibuzz, they're good for Hail teams.

    I've seen people with hail and leftovers who just keep using substitute until the opponents Pokémon faints. I don't like that strategy but it can be useful.

    I also just noticed that Alomomola can be spelt backwards XD I'm slow at figuring things out...

    probably walrein. he works good at stalling because of ice body in the hail which recovers HP and leftovers accompanied by protect and substitute. Then it has 100% accurate Blizzard which does a lot of damage. It can also use super fang or toxic to annoy your opponent even further.

    Profesco gone gently

    They share a weakness to Rock type attacks, which are a common offensive move type.

    Oh, yeah, damn. Rock-type, knew I forgot one. OK, bad example, I guess.

    My original swampert is on my pearl, which my friend recently found at his hosue after being lost for a few years.

    And he's giving it back to me tomorrow :D

    I think Mudkip is adorable! He has that, you know, thing about him...
     
  8. If I remember correctly most Walrein don't carry Blizzard, instead running Substitute/Protect/Super Fang/Brine or something similar.

    That would probably work even better since brine doubles in damage when your opponent is at 50% HP. Speaking of Hail teams, Heatran is always a good team member since he has many resistances and has a fire resist which is something that helps a lot when you have ice pokemon on your team.

    I just caught a Shiny quirky (neutral nature) Sheer force rufflet. Any ideas on what to do with it? train or trade?

    IVS are roughly HP=0-2 att=16-18 def=30 spa=26-28 spd=16-18 speed=17-19

    Only to EV train, which I rarely do anyway.

    SmogonFreak Make that 1 HP last!

    Trade. Rufflet wants HP, Speed, and Attack, not Defense and Special Attack.

    You know how to RNG?

    So I wanted to ask, you know how there is a Chinese Zodiac based of animals.
    Well in the Pokemon world, Whta Pokemon would make the... uh... Pokemonese Zodiac?

    I mean there are a couple of Pokemon that fit the equivalent.

    Like Lillipup. Would that make the best Equ. (equivalent) to the Dog?
    Or Growlithe? Or Arcanine?

    What about the Equ. to the Dragon? Rabbit? Tiger?

    I think Buneary makes the best Rabbit Equ.
    And Rayquaza makes the best Dragon Equ.
    But I have no clue to Tiger, or Pig...

    Any ideas!?

    IVs aren't great, nature could be worse. It really boils down to how you feel about Shiny Pokémon. If you're not into keeping your Shiny Pokémon as, more or less, trophies, then you might consider trading it. I, for one, EV train every Shiny I come across, no matter how screwed over it is due to nature and/or EVs. I have a Shiny Weavile with a Quiet nature and a Shiny Hitmontop with a Calm nature. It's all up to you.

    I never knew Whimsicott was based off a Goat!

    Yeah, Whimiscott is based of a goat.

    Porygon is based off a crane I believe.

    What do you guys think Deoxsys is based off of?

    Yeah, but since you won't get much from Googling "Deoxys", and it's clear she don't know what it's based off, a bit of help would go a long way.

    Try Googling "deoxyribonucleic acid" instead. :/
