      Hey man, I don't know you, but I need your help. A good friend of mine, Subject 18, really wants to learn stall, and I tried to direct him to you. Unfortunately, he could not suck his pride to do so. Therefore, I implore you to approach him, asking to help. I truly believe you will be able to get through to him. Thanks in advance n_n!

        I don't think it's sub18 has too much pride to ask for help, we just have our differences and disagree often. I'd help, but there are a bunch of other people who he might prefer talking to.

        Ah man, thats too bad. I think your a really good player, and could really help him rekindle his interest in Pokemon. Especially since you move away from traditional, cookie-cutter teams with amazing innovation. I hope you can find it in your heart to try again with Subject, since I truly believe that under your mentorship, he will blossom.

        No earlier than tomorrow. I'm GMT-5, so I'll be around about 11am your time earliest, to about 11 pm your time intermittently. Basically like that every week day.

      are you still interested in writing slowking?
      1. Ajwf
        Ajwf
        I've written it. However, I don't quite understand the relevance of a leftover set... what does it have over slowbro? Without an AV, it loses the reason for power gem (CharizardY) and can't really take another major SpA (Thundy) which it could manage a bit with AV. I just don't see where to start with that one.

        checking keldeo as a water type with status is unique-- slowbro cannot do this as it is hit too hard by specs.

        status makes it far better against set up sweepers and lets it use a recover move. and slowking shouldn't be your thundurus check anyway lol

        I mean, the most known special attackers are Keld/Lati/ZardY/Lando/Thundy.... And Afaik, AV slowbro is 4hkod... General slowbro is 3hkod. Slowking can avoid a 4hko naturally but can't get any farther because of sacred sword dealing decent damage.

        Is Slowking viable with this set? I mean, it's not soaking LO Lati dracos well (64-76%), Lando's EP is a guaranteed 2hko, same with zardy and thundy...

        Tomorrow morning, I'll look through my stall teams and fix one up that I kinda wanted to have working. That would make three total I think, none having the VenuTran core. I have two or three more but most are still largely experiments.

      Hi, I am flattered that you tagged me. Well, I do not know if I want play Showdown anymore after my Lenten interdiction, although I will admit it is an engrossing and intellectually stimulating way to spend one's time. Well, despite some of your disagreements (in the Genesect ban thread), I certainly respect you both as a stall theorist and player. :)

        For a little more detail, I've been looking to replace quagsire, the most general member. I've tried Aggron who was a bit redundant and let Thundurus-i get the team, Victini who is currently the best option but loses to Bisharp + knock off, and Nidoqueen who simply has no bulk. Would like something for mawile while not losing too much stall power.

      Yo hit me up if you post any more RMT's and want them rated. I'm gonna start actually rating teams on the forums i guess.
      1. Ajwf
        Ajwf
        I'm probably 2 weeks away from even getting this next team together due to my work in coding and the fact that I'm trying to really put together something with some novelty (Somewhat lacking for stall). I'll definitely tell you when I try to RMT it.

        How would you change the team up for uu? I'd imagine your team would also work there since 4/6 of it is UU

        Two issues: Skarm is so unique that there simply is nothing else that can do it's job and I'd have to have more ways to stop kyub.

        I fully plan to do a UU stall, but it is going to be much later when that meta cools down a bit and will definitely use Slowbro.

        I know :/ I've been thinking about what to do with it. Prepare for band (Which seems common enough), SD (also common) or just expect LO... Which, as odd as it seems, I've seen it.

        Probably not going to update until at very least kan's fate is decided. Not that this is affected, but cofagrigus also has to be changed, so if I find reason to work the two together I can just take care of it in one foul swoop.

        I would, but it would appear this is going to take forever and a half. When they get it banned, or "if", I'll start getting my second stall team up and going. With that guy gone, stall can breathe a bit.

    Worked out a new stall team, this one featuring Mega Blastoise. The Brutal Battleships are a stall team that focuses on highlighting mega blastoise as a support mon and... well, never really had a stall mold to follow to begin with. Drop in, drop a rate, it's probably worth your time.

    Did you know there is a play style that isn't stall? Let me take you on an adventure with my Not Stall (The Other Play style) team.

    Hello. I'm Aj, a Polish/Italian/Englishman with more class than the Queen, God bless her merry soul. I enjoy many things in life, such as reading Shakespeare's sonnets, writing epic poetry and occasionally sharing a drink with Morgan Freeman.

    If I had to name the most intriguing person I've ever met, I'd name myself. Steven Hawking is a close second. I once went to the flea market with nothing but a black pen and two dollars. I returned with $1,000, a blue pen and goldfish.

    If there is one thing in life I regret, it is not knowing the true meaning of that word. But this is just an opinion of what I'd assume I'd regret... And finally, in my obituary, it will be mentioned that my favorite snack was the skin of a watermelon.

    Old Sig to save for later (open)

    1885: We found dragon bones on the West side of Mount Everest, inside a ravine. The bones predated three thousand years, and hard cuts were found, made as if the hard scales found frozen in the floor had been pierced. This was further revealed when the perfectly preserved scales were found to have an unbreakable ice piercing through. This ice was harder than the 'natural ice' found on the cave floor, and so we named this ice the 'icicle spear'. Many of these ice lances were found, leading us to believe that the dragons had been hunted...
