I already told you it was for a tournament. The ralts I asked about a while back is also for the tournament. Listen, I have to get them by Thursday or else my team won't be finished for the tournament. At the rate things are going, I doubt the servers will be back up anytime soon.
My earlier point stands: play test both before asking for this lickitung, please. I don't want to go out of my way for a request I'm doubting that isn't related to the VGCs or a near future tournament.
How many times do I have to say this?? It is NOT a belly drum set!!! Belly drum will get a slash on the set, but swords dance is the main boosting move. The only difference is you're using a brave nature versus something else.
You seen to have misunderstood me. I was referring to your proposed set as a gimmick, not Lickilicky itself.
There is a huge difference between being able to use a Swords Dance and a Belly Drum set effectively. You can play a Swords Dance set like a tank and try setting up multiple times. With Belly Drum, you're committed to one sweeping opportunity. Lickilicky can pull off the former, but the latter sounds terrible on a Pokemon that's very easily revenge killed by one of NU's more popular Pokemon, Sawk. Trick Roon with Belly Drum sounds even worse when you spend a majority of your turns using Trick Room setting it up, switching, and Belly Drumming.
If you would like me to breed your set, play test it on a simulator (Smogon's servers are down due to the changing of hosts, but you can play on PO's server if you wish) and come back with a few logs that prove the set can be effective. At the moment, Belly Drun Lickilicky sounds like terrible, terrible theorymonning.
I'm sorry but you're wrong. Lickilicky is not a gimmick by any means. There's already a swords dance set in the strategydex that proves he isn't. All I'm going to do is use that set under trick room. And in some instances I believe belly drum may be worth using.
So, as smogon has clearly proven, he is not gimmicky. If he can be effective without trick room, I'm sure he can be useful with trick room as well with his horrendous speed. He may not be the slowest pokemon in NU, but you have to remember that NU is a very large tier. Plus, his movepool helps remedy that issue. I'm merely using the set with a different nature and EV's. The only reason I wanted belly drum is so he would have more options if I decided to try that later on.
Yes, switching hosts isn't the quickest process, lol. Have patience. When Antar or Zarel make an announcement that the server is back online, try out Pokemon Showdown. It will do you a world of good to get in practice matches and form metagame knowledge at a much quicker pace.
I really don't want to spend time breeding a gimmick that sounds terrible (in every tier, you have Fighting-type revenge killers all the way down) on paper for one person, never to see use again. Unless you can come back with some convincing battle logs, I don't want to breed your Lickitung and I doubt anyone else will either.
The battle simulator STILL isn't working. Not to be rude or anything, but in the time we've spent arguing about this you probably could have already gotten that lickitung. He may not do as well as I think he will in OU, but at the very least he'll do well in the lower tiers.
