Grumpig is an excellent special wall
User avatar #630377 to #630376 - fitemeirlbro (01/10/2015) [-]
i havent used either before so i dont know which one to use
User avatar #630378 to #630377 - alpacalypse ONLINE (01/10/2015) [-]
grumpig is prolly better. Higher special attack, and less weaknesses

Recently got a 1 hit K.O with confusion. Didn't even know that was possible.
User avatar #630337 to #630316 - alicorn ONLINE (01/10/2015) [-]
The confused status has 40 base power if it hits, after a few Swaggers or SD any physical mon with no bulk goes down instantly, i guess that's why swagplay keys were banned
User avatar #630323 to #630316 - ajrin (01/10/2015) [-]
I met a Garchomp with my umbreon
>gchomp used sword dance
>umbreon used swagger
>gchomp is confused, hit himself is confusion
User avatar #630324 to #630323 - feelythefeel (01/10/2015) [-]
Wait, so confusion damage is based on the opponent's attack? So Swagger works in more than one way?
User avatar #630325 to #630324 - ajrin (01/10/2015) [-]
that's why you should always have 0 iv in atk on your special attackers

tfw hidden power
User avatar #630336 to #630327 - alicorn ONLINE (01/10/2015) [-]
You don't need a 30/31/30/30/31/30 spread for hidden power, attack can be a certain number lower than that
User avatar #630326 to #630325 - feelythefeel (01/10/2015) [-]
Wow, cool. Now I know why some pokemon take slivers in confusion damage when others get OHKO'd.

User avatar #630389 to #630335 - alpacalypse ONLINE (01/10/2015) [-]

This is gen VI you know
User avatar #630402 to #630389 - gongthehawkeye (01/10/2015) [-]
What's wrong with Electivire?
Decent bulk, great movepool, and awesome design.
User avatar #630409 to #630402 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Well, he's shit.

His attack stat seems good but with low basepower moves, he's actually really weak.
User avatar #630417 to #630409 - gongthehawkeye (01/10/2015) [-]
Well he hasn't let me down yet. Plus, I kinda have a personal bias towards him (my team is based on Pokemon that I really like hence why Staraptor and Tentacruel are on there). I think the only Pokemon I didn't put on my team primarily out of liking it was Darmanitan. I like it, but I prefer Arcanine, Infernape, Emboar, and several other fire types but someone recommended it to balance out my slow ass Reuniclus and it's been working pretty well so I'll keep it until I find something better. Problem is I can't duplicate items so it has to work well with a completely different item (another reason why I'm not using Infernape or Arcanine).
User avatar #630421 to #630417 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
..is this for VGCs?
User avatar #630423 to #630421 - gongthehawkeye (01/10/2015) [-]
No, I don't have the dedication/patience to raise legit Pokemon for VGCs. I use Pokegen because after all the hell I went through in gen 5 for breeding, I can't handle it anymore.
And no specific tiers either, I just go into Battle Spot and do free/rated single battles (sometimes doubles if I'm feeling saucy), or accept 6v6 challenges from passerbys.
User avatar #630428 to #630423 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
I just play on Pokeshowdown.
User avatar #630430 to #630428 - gongthehawkeye (01/10/2015) [-]
I do too, but I just don't like being restricted to Smogon's rules all the time, sometimes I just want to battle without worrying about tiers and clauses. People on 3ds online seem to be pretty smart and not do stupid shit like have OHKO moves, or force endless battles, or abuse accuracy checks, so it ain't all bad.
User avatar #630427 to #630423 - gongthehawkeye (01/10/2015) [-]
Also, I'm moderately stubborn because I feel like this is the best team I could come up with, so if I seem like I'm not listening to your suggestions (if you have any), I am, I'm just kinda bummed that I have to change after growing to like this team so much. I'm open to change, I'm just waiting until after I beat OR and get every mega stone, get battle ready Pokemon for each of those stones, battle items like lefties and choice items, and transfer my Pokemon from Y to the Bank to start coming up with new ideas/taking suggestions
User avatar #630432 to #630427 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
You don't have to play by Smogon rules on Pokemon Showdown
User avatar #630433 to #630432 - gongthehawkeye (01/10/2015) [-]
I mean tiers and stuff.
I know they aren't 100% enforced but eh, I bought the game, might as well play online. Plus my friends like to battle and trade every so often so...
User avatar #630309 to #630307 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
also if you're looking for advice on those
Interesting and unique set. Nothing to comment here. Maybe Thunderwave instead of taunt but that's preference
Basically what I use except I've started using Knock Off instead of Crunch. Much better. I've also found Ice punch to be more helpful on wifi-battles because you play against a lot more Salamances, Garchomps, Gliscors, and Dragonites then you do fairies. Also what item on there? I like lum berry to prevent toxic or scald hax or willowisp
>Mega Mawile
Not my cup of tea but looks about right. I would switch fire fang for play rough though
I'd switch Flamethrower for Fiery Dance and then Psychic for either roost or giga drain
Gunk shot is just a little risky for me so maybe poison jab there. Maybe substitute instead of ice punch, that's what a lot of people tend to do. or swords dance even
Not even sure dude not a lot of people use it. Never really encountered a physical one though. Avalanche is pretty shit and if you keep ice punch on toxicroak you don't really need two ice moves on lapras. Not extremely familiar with it's movepool so don't know what to recommend. Maybe if it has a entry hazard move put it there since it's kinda bulky and you have none on your team so far.
User avatar #630310 to #630309 - AWESOMEJANDRO (01/10/2015) [-]
-im still messing around with persian, so i might try out Twave
-knock off on scrafty sounds more dank then crunch now that i look at it
-I was planning to fit play rough in there
-just replaced flamethrower with fiery dance, and idk about replacing psychic. my volcaraona is on the bulky side, but you know, theres never enough fighting counters imo
-I like to live on the edgy side with gunk shot :^) and taking off ice punch sounds gud, since he'd get outspeed by most flying types anyway.
-i've just been using physical lapras cause i wanted something with ice shard that wasn't mamo lol, could probs find a better ice sharding nig
User avatar #630311 to #630310 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
-donphan has ice shard and ca set up rocks. Plus you have no ground types which is never a good thing IMO. If you don't like using Mamo cause he's used too often or you've used him too much that's understandable. Try what mako was talking about the other night. Make him super bulky and have him run Light screen, reflect, stealth rock, and ice shard. If you invest in the right EVs and natures and with thick fat i doubt there is anything that can easily 1hko it without setup
User avatar #630411 to #630308 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
SD/BU Talonflame 6-0s you
User avatar #630465 to #630411 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
no more replies

mamo's bulk and rock slide combo is the only thing that prevents a smogon bird 6-0 tho
User avatar #630468 to #630465 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Mamo isn't bulky enough. +2 Brave Bird OHKOs even max hp Mamo. Banded Brave Bird picks off Mamo at like 85%. Rock Slide only helps against Bulk UP Talon, which is more of a tournament mon anyways.
User avatar #630469 to #630468 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
rock slide 1HKOs though
User avatar #630470 to #630469 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Clearly. Also Icicle crash does like 80-95% anyways

The thing is, you're more likely to switch Mamo in on Talon than the other way around.
User avatar #630471 to #630470 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
so stealth rock icicle crash with a sash is better. Although I'm sure about the sashs usefullness most stuff can't 1HKO him
User avatar #630474 to #630471 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Actually... Mamo is OHKOd by more things than you think. 110/80/60 bulk is pretty eh.
User avatar #630478 to #630474 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
Special greninja helped me in that last game a bit. kinda a good thing it didn't have life orb there but the assault vest didn't really help. I'll try some stuff out and think about it. Jot a big fan on grass not there. Not sure how useful it is. Any other suggestions for that instead?
And I'll test sash rocks swine too
User avatar #630479 to #630478 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Dark Pulse, Hidden Power Fire, Low Kick
User avatar #630482 to #630479 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
Pretty sure it's HP is dragon. I'm thinking either dark pulse or u-turn
User avatar #630487 to #630482 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
That sucks. Try both and see what you prefer
User avatar #630489 to #630487 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
will do. thanks for the help. I'll keep reporting back

It's no hurry. Dw m8.
User avatar #630507 to #630499 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
I'm liking assault vest though. I'm not sure
User avatar #630508 to #630507 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Greninja doesn't really have the bulk to use it well
User avatar #630504 to #630499 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
I think either spikes or u-turn
User avatar #630506 to #630504 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Spikes is pretty good too
User avatar #630503 to #630499 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
why have i not faced any talon lames in the last 15 games what is this not OU or something

Mixed greninja is working well. Still looking for something to replace grass knot tho. It can't even 2HKO a politoed so I don't see the point of it
User avatar #630505 to #630503 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
It's not as common in the lower tiers
User avatar #630412 to #630411 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
mamoswine bulks flare blitz or brave bird
User avatar #630467 to #630412 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
well actually if stealth rocks are out and icicle crash and sash ice shard maybe
User avatar #630419 to #630412 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Mamosine is OHKOd by +2 Bravebird, and Bulk Up Talonflame even sets up on Mamoswine.
User avatar #630420 to #630419 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
>rock slide
User avatar #630422 to #630420 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Most Mamosines run Icicle Crash/Ice Shard/Earthquake/Stealth Rock or Freeze Dry

Running Rock Slide only hits Talonflame, and Bulk Up Talonflame that wants to setup on you, and maybe DD Zard X that doesn't mega evolve. Really ain't worth it.
User avatar #630425 to #630422 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
But I like it cause it's my only main defense against talonflame except water shuriken (which i might not even keep)
I like the way Medicham, Scrafty, Mamoswine, and Exploud are not but I'm still fooling around with Greninja and Roserade. For greninja I'm testing out
Waterfall or Water Shuriken
Acrobatics/U-turn/Gunk Shot/ Shadow sneak (only if no water shuriken)
Acrobatics/U-turn/Gunk Shot/ Shadow sneak (only if no water shuriken)
spikes/toxic spikes (only if no gunk shot)

and on roserade I can't figure out what the best 4th move would be. Rest is kinda useless cause she isn't bulky enough. Her HP is dragon. I am debating between Venom Drench (only if greninja has toxic spikes) and Grassy Terrain and Weather Ball (for unexpected against someone running megazard and then switching to scizor or ferrothorn)
User avatar #630429 to #630425 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
I've said it before, but Mix Greninja is the best you could use.

Ice Beam/Gunk Shot/Low Kick/Hydro Pump or Extrasensory or Hidden Power Fire
40 Atk / 216SpA / 252 Speed, Naive nature

Use this and you'll rarely struggle again
User avatar #630431 to #630429 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
I just got it to level 100 and it's nature is Naughty. I have already EV trained it in Max speed and attack so I'd have to reset that. I don't think I need a 4th pokemon with high power ice move and a 3rd pokemon with a physical fighting move. I took your advice and am testing gunk shot though
User avatar #630434 to #630431 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Well, the option to run Hydro/ExtraSensory/Gunk Shot/Grass Knot is also there.

Fully physical Greninja is kinda not that good.
User avatar #630435 to #630434 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
sheit I don't know. Once you get to level 100 isn't it too late to do EVs though?
User avatar #630444 to #630441 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
How so? Even if it's level 100 you can just increase and decrease it's stats? I didn't thinkit worked like that I thought they had to be on level up. But ok. I'll test a mixed greninja
User avatar #630445 to #630444 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Nah, that was in 4th gen

in 5th and 6th gen the EVs are added directly without level-ups
User avatar #630446 to #630445 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
very interseting. I'm testing this rn
Greninja (M) @ Assault Vest
Ability: Protean
EVs: 40 Atk / 216 SpA / 252 Spe
Naive Nature
- Hydro Pump
- Extrasensory
- Gunk Shot
- Grass Knot
User avatar #630450 to #630446 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Don't use Assault Vest, Life Orb is the only item
Seriously, Greninja isn't a good AV user.
User avatar #630454 to #630450 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
But Mamo already holds life orb and I don't like duping items. Imma at least give vest a try
User avatar #630457 to #630454 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Make Mamo a Sash Lead instead
User avatar #630462 to #630457 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
with stealth rocks instead of rock slide? but then I'm completely vulnerable to Smogon Bird
User avatar #630464 to #630462 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
You already are. Rock Slide really doesn't help too much.

Mistyped. I meant Naughty. I know it's not the best but after 6 boxes of froakies it was the first one with perfect IVs and protean so i said fuck it naughty is good enough
User avatar #630456 to #630453 - kyouko (01/10/2015) [-]
Eh, you only need perfect Attack, Special Attack and Speed with Naive nature
User avatar #630460 to #630456 - supertanto (01/10/2015) [-]
My in game greninja (all showdown pokemon are mirrored by my in game except all on showdown are 6IVs whereas some in game are 5 IVs) has all perfects except HP, which is around 17 i believe. It's also naughty nature and that's not gonna change, I'm sticking with this guy. His EVs are in speed and attack but that can be changed (apparently)

How much do IVs matter in pokemon?
If I'm breeding for competitive, is it really necessary to have 6 perfect IVs?
User avatar #630318 to #630220 - feelythefeel (01/10/2015) [-]
You never need 6, because going for 6 implies that you're using both special and physical attacks on the same Pokemon, which is arguably worse than mediocre IVs in the first place.
User avatar #630292 to #630220 - vivapinatapro (01/10/2015) [-]
Perfect IVs aren't necessary. Especially at level 50. However, you do want high IVs. People on this board masturbate to the thought of 31 IVs but in reality the difference between say 25 and 31 is negligible. Because Pokemon uses a damage roll so there is a but of randomness to how much damage is done. Will you have n "edge" with perfect IVs? Technically. But in most cases it doesn't matter. I recommend breeding the best mons you can, but don't obsess over that 5th or 6th IV.
User avatar #630291 to #630220 - supertanto (01/09/2015) [-]
depends on the pokemon but 5 is usually the case
User avatar #630228 to #630220 - bouncykirby (01/09/2015) [-]
Depending on the mon

But 5 is usually best although some can get away with 4
User avatar #630221 to #630220 - aceshot ONLINE (01/09/2015) [-]
6 IV isnt necessary, 5 IV is. Most pokemon usually only use sp attack or attack, so having the IV for the stat your not using is useless.

#630262 to #630255 - anon (01/09/2015) [-]
Did you IV breed your masquerain, or did you just catch it and train as is?
and what is its nature?
User avatar #630266 to #630262 - reican (01/09/2015) [-]
I had a friend IV breed it for me at the time as i had yet to get a ditto then, it has a timid nature and have a high sp.def and def on EV. one or two quiver dance usually allow me to bring down opponents fairly easily combined with the boost from expert belt on super effective attacks.
User avatar #630256 to #630255 - ajrin (01/09/2015) [-]
masquerain is shit
User avatar #630257 to #630256 - reican (01/09/2015) [-]
How come my Masquerain beat venomoth and 2 others in an online battle without having to swap? and they were faster.

luck or the other person was shit

User avatar #630261 to #630259 - ajrin (01/09/2015) [-]
no but srsly
masguerain is shit and you can't say that unless you only used masquerain in your team
User avatar #630264 to #630261 - reican (01/09/2015) [-]
well, I am planning to get heracross for my next team, what nature would you suggest?
User avatar #630265 to #630264 - ajrin (01/09/2015) [-]
Adamant + scarf best set
User avatar #630267 to #630265 - reican (01/09/2015) [-]
Ill go with that one then, thanks for the advice.
Btw, Masquerain can be relatively good if you have it with perfect IVs, timid nature and EV boost its def and sp.def + expert belt.
quiver dance is a must-have.
User avatar #630268 to #630267 - ajrin (01/09/2015) [-]
try and use it in ubers it's like the online in-game on showdown
you'll see how bad it is
User avatar #630269 to #630268 - reican (01/09/2015) [-]
hmm, i guess its only good outside the uber battles then.
What's your opinion on ninetails?
User avatar #630270 to #630269 - ajrin (01/09/2015) [-]
good if you're running a Sunny team
and usable in UU
I don't use it personally in UU tho cause I think Chandelure is the superior fire type there
User avatar #630271 to #630270 - reican (01/09/2015) [-]
well I got a ninetails with HA and 6 perf IVs + good speed. having a venusaur with solar beam have been a god combo for me so far
User avatar #630273 to #630271 - ajrin (01/09/2015) [-]
you could add Heliolisk and Houndoom-M to that team
and get Chlorophyll ono that venusaur if youo haven't already

I made a sunny team real quick if you want to see
User avatar #630300 to #630273 - reican (01/10/2015) [-]
anyhow, it's been a nice chat, thanks for the advices, might use t-tar with a different team, but kingdra for this one.
User avatar #630298 to #630273 - reican (01/10/2015) [-]
i guess i could go with Kingdra, which is only x2 weak to dragon and fairy, resists steel and strongly resists fire and water. base evenly strong on both attack stats and defensive lower speed and hp, but give it scope lens and breed it with modest nature i guess it could do good, My mawile can deal with any dragon types that it might face and venusaur with fairies using some toxic attack.
User avatar #630299 to #630298 - ajrin (01/10/2015) [-]
sounds good
User avatar #630296 to #630273 - reican (01/10/2015) [-]
well toxic IS an issue, how about carracosta? or drifblim?
User avatar #630297 to #630296 - ajrin (01/10/2015) [-]
caracosta is super weak against grass and any special move
drifblim is not tanky and doesn't resist fire, flying, psychic
User avatar #630293 to #630273 - reican (01/10/2015) [-]
out of replies in the line Well, i prefer to avoid legendaries, and dialga may be resist psychic and flying, however, fire is not that resisting due to the steel properties to it, and Tyranitar resists almost all of them as well, not to mention immune to psychic., and it shares the common strong weakness to fighting but it resist ground attacks a little more than dialga, same with fire.
User avatar #630295 to #630293 - ajrin (01/10/2015) [-]
+t-tar got 4x weakness to fighting, dialga is only 2x weak against it
User avatar #630294 to #630293 - ajrin (01/10/2015) [-]
it doesn't resist more than dialga
and t-tat can still be toxied
User avatar #630285 to #630273 - reican (01/09/2015) [-]
I might have him for the second team, but at the moment i need a poke that can deal with flying, toxic, psychic, steel and fire.
User avatar #630286 to #630285 - ajrin (01/09/2015) [-]
Dialga if you're okay with legends
Resists Flying, Psychic and Fire is neutral
and he's immune to poison attacks
User avatar #630276 to #630273 - reican (01/09/2015) [-]
well that might be a good addition to the team which is so farMasquerain, venusaur, ninetails, Mawile and soon a tyranitar as soon as i have bred at least 5 perfect iv's on a larvitar, currently egg

Need ideas for a mega on my UU team in Showdown
Been using Abomasnow with Wood Hammer, Ice Shard, Earthquake, and Leech Seed (I go physical because Ice Shard).
I like Beedrill for his raw power and speed, but he hinges on being sent out at the right time and I'm usually to eager to get a sweep going. Ampharos served me well with Heal Bell but that's about it.
