      Hey bud, bit of an odd question haha. How did you keep track of your Glalie's stat boosts during your Maison streak? I'm currently building a team around it for Battle Spot use but the testing on Showdown has spoiled me with how it shows the boosts on-screen!

        It's a lot easier when you know exactly what the opponent's stats are for comparison. The only good information you get is that something just rises rather than sharply rises when it goes from +5 to +6, so you can use that to know which stats are maxed out and how many turns you got a net +0 rather than a +1. Anything beyond that would requrebyou to get crafty and make something with 7 different "sliders" you can adjust from turn to turn.

        Yeah that's really all I thought I could do (refer to what's not sharply boosting anymore) which is why I asked haha. The thing about 3v3 against other players rather than the AI is that you rarely get to stall out to actually get more than one stat to +6 (depending on how lucky you are) since they don't play along as nicely as the AI haha! You mostly just wanna start spamming Sheer Colds as soon as you have enough speed (at least +3) and am intact Sub. Guess I'll just have to pay more attention or bug someone to make a 'stat booster tracker' app haha

      Nice work on the latest streak! I don't have any problem with keeping your full list of streaks on the leaderboard, but if you really would prefer me to pare things down a bit, I can do so. Even if you do want me to do such trimming, however, it's probably best for me to keep the links to your old streaks up until you can update the later posts with links to the earlier team details posts.

        I'll be working the other teams when I have time, but I've consolidated all the Durant-Drapion-Cloyster information into the the post that has my longest streak with that team.

      "(as opposed to two particular teams that are carbon copies of others posted in the thread, right down to the listed EVs or lack thereof)"
      now I'm curious - I'm sure JohnJohn's is one of the ones you're referencing, but if the other one isn't me then I don't know who and now I'm interested

        it wasn't all in one post. someone had a team that was durant/blaziken/heracross. the blaziken had fire punch instead of sub, and the consensus was basically "bp isn't gonna be very good but you might as well have sub to protect the recipient because fire punch with no boosting item isn't gonna do much"

        and then the other suggestion was cloyster over heracross because either one being BPed +6 was gonna be overkill, so might as well use a more helpful item.

      Thanks a bunch man! I guess i really should spend my time to breed Gyarados then. xD

        The nice thing is that Gyarados is the easiest Pokemon to breed haha. No egg moves and Magikarp hatch super quickly.

        In those first few battles, you could also probably get by with not setting Drapion up all the way. If you KO the lead with +2 Speed and Attack with a Sub up, that's enough to sweep 99% of the time.
