why is blazekin banned?

User avatar #52 to #50 - ohgodwaitimatheist (10/27/2013) [-]
Because his Dream World ability, Speed Boost.
User avatar #53 to #52 - diabolicgnome (10/27/2013) [-]
so im guessing speed boost is just to powerfull
User avatar #55 to #53 - ohgodwaitimatheist (10/27/2013) [-]
Well, the ability alone is not, Ninjask has it but it's not so much of a big deal because it can't abuse it alone, Blaziken, on the other hand, can use it freely, he has swords dance, Hi Jump Kick, Blaze Kick, Brave Bird, etc etc etc. If it wasn't for Speed Boost, he would be on lower tiers.
User avatar #56 to #55 - diabolicgnome (10/27/2013) [-]
what do you mean he can use it freely?
User avatar #58 to #56 - ohgodwaitimatheist (10/27/2013) [-]
I meant that he is the only one that has it and can exploit it at same time.

And, oh, Blaziken can learn Baton Pass.

sorry still don't get it what does an extra speed stage add to those attacks
User avatar #98 to #89 - slendermanshadow (10/28/2013) [-]
I'll attempt to explain a little better. In generation 4, the only reason infernape was so good was because it outsped and had the attack stat to take out pokemon in one hit. it was a glass cannon that just died if something hit it with a good attack. Blaziken has better attack than infernape but the defenses were the same so it just got killed without doing anything. Meaning the main problem was it's lack of speed. Speed boost blaziken creates a monster due to it's base 120 attack and 110 special attack (Both higher than infernapes) because after a single speed boost, (max speed ev and nature) it reaches a speed stat of 426. That outspeeds every pokemon except for deoxys and ninjask, the latter not being able to do much against blaziken. Tl:dr, the speed doesnt add anything to the attacks themselves but when a base 120 attack pokemon uses a move that is STAB and has base 120 power (flare blitz) and outspeeds essentially everything after a single speed boost, **** gets cray.

can't they just remove it for future versions?
User avatar #107 to #71 - chezburgadominator (10/28/2013) [-]
That's like having a pokemon evolve into one thing for 3 games straight then saying 'nah we think this is a lot cooler' and erasing that evolution from existence and giving it a different one. Not an alternative new one, but replacing the old one.

Point is, once something like this is established so heavily it can't just be changed. They HAVE changed Hidden Abilities for a few Pokémon this generation but I don't think they'd do it for Blaziken.

I'm just sayin', if Blaziken is the king people say he is, isn't that not supposed to happen?
It was restricted. All lvls set to 50.
User avatar #32 to #31 - aerius (10/27/2013) [-]
His umbreon was probably IV bred / EV trained and using a metagame build. In competitive play umbreon is used as a cleric though, so he may have been using a non-standard build. If your blaziken had good speed and attack IV/EVs you should have instantly oneshot a dark type using a fighting move.
User avatar #33 to #32 - odioomnes (10/27/2013) [-]
Didn't even get to make a move yo
User avatar #42 to #33 - lazengahn (10/27/2013) [-]
Do you have the Speed boost one? Try giving it protect so you get a free boost turn.
It's also possible it had Quick claw
User avatar #34 to #33 - aerius (10/27/2013) [-]
well, since umbreon's base speed is crap compared to blaziken, his umbreon must have had a huge EV/IV lead on you.
User avatar #36 to #34 - Thundergod ONLINE (10/27/2013) [-]
I'm surprised he didn't Super-Train speed and Attack, those two things are all Blaziken needs to kick ass, and it should outpace Umbreon in any fight where the latter doesn't have a choice scarf, and some where it does. The fact that Blaziken has an ability that lets it get faster every turn gives you NO excuse, odioomnes. Sky Uppercut and Blaze Kick everything. Swords Dance on the things that also need one turn of setup. YOU. WILL. EAT. THEM.

Anon-fag here who started Ruby and is (regrettably) new to the pokémon games. Which four moves should I aim to get on my padawan-Blaziken (He's just a level 28 Combusken yet) for maximum efficiency/versatality?

I was planning on Flamethrower,Dig,Sky Uppercut and Bulk Up/Rest.
But I dunno this is as previously stated my first time. Please help
User avatar #67 to #40 - douevensax (10/28/2013) [-]
hi jump kick, flamethrower, some other attack moves and maybe a flying move and Swords Dance if you want. His defence and health is low. He wont survive. Use his high attack to your advantage.

It's only competitive pokemon. Some of your friends may hate you if you use Blaziken in friendly games, but there is nothing against it.
User avatar #5 to #4 - ZenMacros [OP](10/27/2013) [-]
Some are just too powerful and would cause one-sided battles or just unbalance the game in general. That's why there are tiers. Based on many factors, Pokemon can go into one of three tiers. If they're too powerful for the highest tier, they are put into Ubers, and can be used there.
User avatar #6 to #5 - spookyghostparty ONLINE (10/27/2013) [-]
Keep in mind that this is for the tier system used by and, while Smogon is one of the most respected authorities on Pokemon out there, that this ban list isn't a universally accepted system (for example, I believe that in the official world championship tournaments held by Nintendo that you can use anything except a select group of box legendaries like Arceus and Mewtwo).

flare blitz i think

with sash or life orb.

It`s not banned tho, it`s just in ubers.

that's what it means to be banned
User avatar #16 to #2 - xdeathspawnx (10/27/2013) [-]
Blaziken is ranked in the uber tier, meaning he is one of the most op pokemon in the game. Because of this, him and the other ubers are banned from OU tier battles (or lower) which is usualy the most popular tier.

Torterra has 109 HP and 105 Def. Meaning unless you wanna make a Toxic x Leech Seed Staler he's just not as good.

Honestly. Sceptile or Serperior are better Grass types. But from a personal standpoint Iove Venasaur out of all the others
#141 to #57 - generalwatergate (10/29/2013) [-]
my torterra in diamond absolutly RAPES EVERYTHING. then again, i do have a habit of overleveling my starters. let's put it this way: he was a torterra before the THIRD gym. i'm training for the fifth gm and he's in the MID-LATE 50'S.

Since X/Y's release practically everyone uses Blaziken, Mewtwo, Xerneas, Yveltal in their party. Out of 86 battles I have only fought 6 people that did not use them. Eventually I had to develop an uber killing team just because of this. Plus it's sad that you can almost predict which moves they will spam, it's like I'm facing the same guy over and over. As for mega rings, I love the feature of that in which it changes appearance but oh my god it's like players can't live without them now.

Like I said, once you know how they work, those players are really easy to take out. Though more than half the time when they see that they are about to lose to "regular" pokemon, they end up forfeiting. Even when that counts as a win, it still feels empty. If you're gonna battle, be prepared to follow through for worse.

All rants aside, those few times when you are able to have a proper battle are fun as hell. Win or lose, if it was a good ******* match, I'm satisfied
User avatar #51 to #43 - KazumaKyu (10/27/2013) [-]
... the person fighting you is completely unconcerned with how fulfilling a battle feels to you. When you realize that you are going to lose, you forefit. Continuing is a waste of your time and theirs when the battle is already a foregone conclusion.
User avatar #109 to #43 - chezburgadominator (10/28/2013) [-]
I feel you, you also left out the fact that a lot of teams are bringing OHKO moves for the sake of trying to OHKO. Three times I have fought teams with both Xerneas and Abomasnow that do nothing but spam Sheer Cold(And it's annoying when they get it on the first try)
User avatar #138 to #43 - priestoftheoldones (10/29/2013) [-]
I would still find myself an exploud, aggron, raichu and luxary. I don't have Y/X but with a greninja on that team, oh-hoho-oh. Death to all.
#49 to #43 - slend (10/27/2013) [-]
Good grief and if this isn't the truth I don't know what is.

I've made a Reuniclus into a special defender with light screen/Recover/Infestation/psychic.
It ends up with enemies -always- sending out a Mewtwo that spam psychic or aura sphere and basically ending up in a 'who can use recover the longest!' battle.

Super evolution was a fun concept, but I'm hanging to the feeling that they should've left it out of competitive play altogether.
#99 to #49 - anon (10/28/2013) [-]
How I manage is my Umbreon wall w/ Moonlight, Payback, Toxic, Mean Look and an all around high def and special defense stat

I usually start out with Mean Look so they can't switch their "precious" legendary out of battle then poison them with Toxic. Then it's all a matter of waiting it out by healing with Moonlight, speed up the process by occasionally attacking with Payback at the risk of losing HP.

Of course there are several loop holes to this, but as for general ubers and legends, it will work. You could do the same thing with Infestation, though the downside is that it does wear off
#130 to #99 - slend (10/28/2013) [-]
It wears off, yeah, that's definitely a downside. It's a shame I couldn't find a replacement for it that's more permanent, but, it does speed up the damage, luckily.

I'm going to try the same with Umbreon I'm thinking, it's a far more permanent solution.
Of course, steel types counter this strategy entirely, but of course, we've got more pokemon than one on our party now don't we? ;)
