      Hey man, ash said to ask you about the shiny Cresselia. I can trade anytime for the next 8 hours although it looks as though you may have gone to bed. If you get up in the morning and have a spare minute to trade then let me know and I'll jump online!

        You're welcome dude, best of luck in that competition!

        Also, I was gonna ask you about a post you made in the SQSR thread some time ago about matching balls for Suicune; were you looking along the way for a Shiny HB usable one?

        lol don't worry, she'll eat her words when you two are in the opening ceremony/entire event; after seeing how the US Nats were (via photos on NB), Worlds will be probably much better outside of the ugly part (the competition).

        Albus
        Nah, both interesting and viable. HP Grass Entei is actually good (or it used to be?) for singles against Gastro, Kabutops and friends, but for VGC is actually pretty lolzy. Congrats on that thing!

        If Gastro or pert were as popular as they were in BW, then HP Grass would be more baws, but hey, you can still hit "hard" Rotom-W and Suicune at least lol. Is still pretty good for Singles, and its an unique and good keep, unlike the hordes of Adamant ones out there. I'll SR a jolly one when I'm off with the absurd Suicune hunt.

        No problem. "Edith" told me that I could distribute BR versions for value if I want, as long as I help distribute the UT Zapdos. ^^

        Cobalion/Mixed Mence has been pretty decent so far for me.
        Jul 12, 2015
      3. Albus
        Albus
        Yeah, I'll give them away in UT form (as well as the other legends), since I don't think anyone would take the BR ones I have, and most decent VGC players design their own spreads anyway.

        Hmm, that combo looks a tad weak to Aegislash and weather (specially Jap Sand), do you use your mence with Fire attacks to compensate against Aegis? now that I think it, Hydreigon looks like an excellent partner to Cobalion.

        I've tried Fire-attacks on the Mixed Mence to deal with Aegislash and decided against it. Ran into many WP Aegislash. xD

        I have other ways to deal with Aegislash on my team though.

        Zek has a niche as a Scarfer because its inmunity to paralysis + powerful STAB attacks, unlike most Scarfers in the tier, that's why Naive/Jolly comes to mind. And that's the other thing, the damn IVs, which add another layer of difficulty; hell, it could take me a lot of tosses suitable for a non-mixed nature to nab a good one with my exigent standards.
        May 20, 2015
      3. flargananddingle
        flargananddingle
        Even though the speed tier isn't great I'd do jolly>Naive. I know it doesn't make much sense but it has pretty reasonable bulk, and if I'm sacrificing that I'd rather hit harder..that's me though

        If its physical movepool wasn't shit I'd go with Jolly/Adamant over it any day of the week but yeah, the thing kind of needs Focus Miss/DMeteor in its movesets to compensate. However, I could still go for a Jolly coz is obv miles easier than a Naive one.

        Sorry man, as I said to the other guy, I don't feel comfortable trading my Virizion for SV Shinies, I'll only trade it for other Shiny pentagon legends/very rare offers. I might change my mind if I'm in a serious need of Shinies, but not now.
