Alright! Don't forget to get those tour battles done, you know? I'll bother you INCESSANTLY until you do.



Ooh, Jeopardy!
Answer in the form of a question!

Also, sorry for the memegenerator font, the old site is corrupted.​

Tryin' to do the tour battle. "SOMEONE POISONED THE-" Communication is a bit slow, so... not sure when it'll happen.

For Jeopardy... "Wanna Swanna?" (No idea what that means)

Not even close with Swanna! This is a real Jeopardy question. ;-;

Thanks for contactin! I'll be PM'n those who I havent noticed makin much of a move.

Not Swanna? Huh. Figured it was, since it gets Aqua Jet in USM and it's the only speed priority move it gets. In that case... a far-fetched guess of... "What's a Farfetch'd?"
 

DX 2401PT

Oh, not even Farfetch'd that gets FIRST Impression in USM (for some reason)?? Hmm. ... Then I have no idea.

Dugtrio has always been able to attack first! Cmon now! This is a Pokemon that could never attack first until recently this gen!

Also, dont forget to suggest for the CCAT, all.
 
If anak were here he'd get it :(

Is it Sableye. Stall -> Prankster

But Beartic always had Swift Swim, which is more or less the same.

Hmm... A Pokemon that can attack first now when it hadn't been able to before... "What is Wobbuffet?"

Way to go DX! I don't think you know why exactly, but you got the answer right, at least! ^^
That one was kinda hard, huh?

SECOND MON NOMINATIN


Alrighty, it's Mane-Mega as our first team member! Fast, strong, and made of coverage, it can hit most things hard as a revenge killer or can simply get out of there with some chip damage via Volt Switch most times. Things that ail Manectric are defensive Grounds that dont quite mind HP Ice like Hippowdon, Swampert and faster Grounds like Scarf Krook lookin to be cheeky and switch into an electric type. Scarf mons can easily be the thing that KO's Manectric so it's good to scout for these things first before leaving Mane in on things like Hydreigon, Infernape, or Latias, if you can. Then you have mons with the merit of typing and stats like the aforementions Latias, Blissey, and bulky Altaria-Mega who easily come in and threaten Mane with damage, and damage is not something Manectric could take too often aside from -1 attacks. Intimidate is a fantastic ability for obvious reasons by helping other mons set up comfortably after potentially being pivoted in and keeping Manectric healthy enough to check some physical attackers, but do keep in mind that Mane is still relatively frail and may still take quite a bit, even from a -1 attack. Aside from being really fast and relatively powerful, it must be re-iterated that Volt Switch allows for it to help bring things in safely, so it'd be good to bring in wallbreakers or set up mons that can help break through Manes checks and counters! Don't forget that Mane itself is pretty speedy and pretty strong! It can easily just clean up at the end of a game to, yknow?


Manectric-Mega @ Manectite
Ability: Lightning Rod
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Volt Switch
- Thunderbolt
- Overheat/Flamethrower
- Hidden Power [Ice]

Offensive pivot with Volt Switch and revenge killer for stuff like Scizor and Crawdaunt, being fast enough to outspeed most of UU except for MAero, MDrill, MSceptile, and scarfers. Has pretty good coverage with Overheat/Flamethrower and HP Ice, threatening a bunch of common mons including the three S ranks (Scizor, Azumaril, Gliscor) and providing super effective damage against electric resists such as grass and ground types. Lightning Rod before mega evolution allows it switch into stuff like TWave from Klefki, Volt Switch from opposing Manectric, etc. and get a nifty power up. Intimidate proves some nice utility against physical attacks, especially those whose STABs Manectric resists such as Scizor and Cobalion and helps Manectric have an easier time switching into weaker mons. Overheat is more powerful and nets some handy KOs (OHKOs Cobalion, Klefki, offensive Celebi after rocks, and 2HKOs Amoonguss) while Flamethrower is more accurate and consistent.

Go ahead and suggest that second teammate! Whatever it is, a set up sweeper, a defensive mon, or a Pokemon that can benefit from Mane in a different way; it doesn't matter, just explain it well and suggest it!

Huzzah. I think I know why, though. This wasn't a blind guess.

At first, I figured "attack first" = speed priority, since those attacks are described as "attack first". But nope. Then I thought, is this like a dumb question? So a Pokemon that gets an attack with "first" in it, like First Impression or Me First? Nope.

So in a serious attempt, I thought... "A Pokemon that could NOT attack first". But everything CAN attack first, regardless of Spd. Trick Room, opponent using negative priority, etc. So a Pokemon that could NOT attack first would have to be a Pokemon that just does not have an attack at all, thus by definition, can't attack first. Cosmog/Cosmoen can't attack, and still can't attack. No move tutors, special moves, etc. AND is Generation VII Pokemon so there is no "before" to speak of. So then Wobbuffet (and Wynaut), since that does not have an attack. Technically. However, Counter and Mirror Coat can be used as attacking Z moves. So for one turn only, Wobbuffet can now have an attack thus it CAN attack first. And that was correct!

Sorry I've been quiet! Been playing Pokemon still, just that college has drained a lot of my free time D:

Been working on another living dex with all the pokemon from the games they debuted in this time, so been keeping myself occupied with that the few hours I get to play.

You do you, wind! Other stuff can be more important, though, I never quite understood the appeal of a living dex. Though it's probably just fun to look at, like ballmons.

hehe bwoi...you shall NEVER get it, face it VO, your Jeopardy career is FINISHED

CHALLENGE TIME

Woo, time for windwakemeups flavored challenge! The one he requested will be a super specific one, but still very much do-able. So here's the rules;

Rules

1. You must use either a Raichu or Mawile on your team! Easy!
2. This must be done on Pokemon Showdown using USUM OU ruleset.
3. You must use a fresh alt (that means no battles on it prior), so please fill out the form, and wait for it to be verified by me before you start!
4. The goal to reach is 1515 ELO, its EZ.
5. Please post 3 replays of you using your team!

Raichu I feel is a very slept on threat. It has a very respectable speed tier in 110 and has access to a versatile movepool. Not only that, but its ability allows it to check KokoLucha, with it still being faster then the standard Lucha set even after terrain has proc'd its seed. Access to Nasty Plot also keeps it quite threatening! Mawile requires no introduction. It's main job is to tear through teams early game and make openings for others mons; it has a coverage move for pretty much every thing; and once it gets in; can easily nab a kill just by clicking the appropriate one. It may even sweep with Sucker later! Hyper Cutter allows it to get the most out of Play Roughing a Lando-T as it comes in on a base form, but Intimidate also has its perks in allowing Mawile to come in even more easily in conjunction with its stellar defensive typing.
