    I feel obliged to give one last good bye to you Deck Knight before I leave for good. Somehow, you have managed to capture my imagination so quickly over the past two/three weeks that I feel obligated to say good bye to you specifically and wish you luck. I wish I knew you IRL but I must say...

  3. CAP 22 CAP 22 - Part 10 - Complete Movepool Submissions

    WIP Total number of moves: 55 Given that flavor is not a premier forte of mine, I played to the stereotypes commonly associated with Fairy and Fighting-types and added a number of supportive and offensive move options associated with both typings. In the case of Fairy-typing, I added moves...
  4. What do you want to do as a career?

    Law is incredibly competitive if you do not specialize into a particular section of law. Being a lawyer in general can be increasingly competitive, but being something like a patent lawyer, where you understand the technicalities of the patent AND the law, can earn you a significant amount of...

    My reasoning was as a dual screen user, our CAP has the distinct qualities that enable it to take advantage of Parting Shot as a way to pivot out. If you are recommending one screen + Parting Shot then it illustrates you do not understand how screens works. No offensive Pokemon is going to...
  8. Books

    Pride and Prejudice seems like a poorly written book until you have read it more than once. It is much more difficult to comprehend on your first read than other novels because it is not exactly as easy to distinguish what is actually going on as easily as Jane Eyre. It isn't as difficult a...

    That is not how Screens works. Offensive Dual Screens is not an ideal way to running screens, for running EVs in offenses rather than defenses makes getting up screens more difficult; the screen set would be Moonblast / Screens / Parting Shot. Our CAP, as a Screens user, has the advantage of...
  11. Serious shaving your hair off

    If your hair is naturally curly, then you should not have an issue with it growing back. My hair is naturally curly, but it only curls when it is long enough (a little over medium length for a male), which might be the case with your hair as well. If you are worried about it being straight...

    Play Rough - I do not see the point of this move when the only physical attack our CAP should need is Close Combat. There is no harm to adding it, but STAB Moonblast is noticeably stronger, meaning our CAP is going to be relying on that much more often. If Deck Knight wants to slate it, I do...
  13. CAP 22 CAP 22 - Part 8 - Moveset Discussion

    I am not going to spend this point re-iterating the reasoning I used before regarding how Spikes affects CAP 22's checks but Deck Knight I would strongly consider questioning the reason you are using behind the move. Spikes is a much better move to have than Parting Shot, and given the movepool...
  14. CAP 22 CAP 22 - Part 8 - Moveset Discussion

    We have already slated Yawn, as well as Taunt and Spikes. If anything, CAP 22 already has a number of available support moves to choose from. Hypnosis is not that consistent, but given what our CAP already has, it might not be a good idea to expand its support movepool, otherwise it would have...
