Lol the problem is...all Cradily should run Storm Drain especially since it is no longer illegal with Giga Drain lol. You lost to a scrub, so who cares. And lol Kyurem-W is such a bamf it's great. I'm really liking Ubers. However, I have evolved from RU Beast to RU mother fucking GOD. I am so on point with RU it's ridiculous. Loving this tier.
I did the same-ish thing in NU but with a Whirlipede for spikes and Miltank for SR. It's nice because Eviolite Whirlipede can take hits like no tomorrow and if the opponent doesn't have Cradily I'm golden. The one match I lost with it I set up ONE layer of toxic spikes and he switched in Cradily as I set up the other. So I couldn't afflict it with a crippling status. Infinite sadness.
I imagine I can probably just catch you on irc or something if/when I end up free to run a couple test matches in these tiers with which I'm not necessarily too familiar. Something tells me everyone and their mother will be running Kyurem-W, so I should find some things that do the closest to hard-countering it.
It would be awesome if we had a training session sometime later this week and you could help me learn some of the lower tiers (and Ubers, because even though I thought I was decent I've been pretty awful on everything except ladder lately... but I haven't tried much in BW2 Ubers yet.) Once I finish college visits (by Friday) I'm making some BW2 stuff and will be a lot more free. Prior to Slam we should totally have a practice session where we test and play some casual games. Especially UU and Ubers (and RU to a lesser extent.) I think I've got my LC and NU stuff stashed away pretty nicely for now.
PS: The team you quickly theorymon'd out for LC? Works really nicely. Probably not performing at optimal levels yet due to sheer inexperience, but hey~! Great start. Made a similar one for NU. Even better, believe it or not. Except for Cradily. Fuck Cradily. To high heaven.
I hate playing BW2 OU. I, however, am having a fuck ton of fun raping the lower tier's bridges, orgasming about how fucking strong Kyurem-White is in Ubers, having fun making UU teams, and overall loving Little Cup. As in, I really love all of the BW2 tiers...except OU which is a sack of shit. I already played all the other tiers though, so I should be pretty good for Grand Slam--I'm good at all of them...except OU lol. I'm pretty bad at OU (BW1 / BW2). I just have a fuck ton more fun playing other things.
I can't root for France/LA/East/West.
So yeah. Go Asia and stuff! Even though you knocked us out =(
Also now I guess it's time for me to focus on tiers that aren't BW(or BW2) OU. Got Grand Slam coming up.
Plus learning those lower tiers (especially RU) really well might make me a welcome addition to an SPL team aha. SPL needs a LC player. For real.
