      Why is it that even after 2000 posts, you have no badge?
      1. IcyMan28
        I haven't been super active on these forums for a while, actually. ORAS hype brought me back.

        ok, but it's still odd that you've so many posts and such an old user, but no badge(even alumnus)

      Choice Band Adamant Zekrom has ~56% chance to OHKO Mega Slowbro with Bolt Strike.

      To be fair, MrTharne pointed out the possibility for Sydney being capable of mega evolution about 3 posts before you.

      I've been using Mirror Coat Milotic since Gen 5 with a good deal of success.

      Hey, do you know if Keldeo is any good?

      Totally forgot about Scarf Mienshao, which is shame on me. Thanks for the clarification, IcyMan28.

      GL with your studies! I need to keep it up myself (graduated, but way behind on apps).

      For real. If I weren't taking summer OChem I'd definitely be laddering more to have it pushed over into that majority vote.

      "since I play [broken] Drizzle most of the time"

      Fuck yeah, that's the kind of stuff I want to see. Join me in the fight against Drizzle and help us vote it out.

      Thanks CPrime, much appreciated.

      Thank you for making good, well thought out posts. It's kind of sad to see so few intelligent people posting in the suspect threads. This might not matter much coming from me or anything other nobody, but it is appreciated, so thanks.

      Hey, got any more advice/nitpicks for my Milotic analysis?

      thanks for the sunny day thread, it was mighty useful.

      The EVs didn't actually have a purpose outside of balance. I hit an HP number divisible by 8 for the recovery, I got my SpD above 220, and then the rest was put into Df and At. Not exactly much method to the madness lol but I can't say I've been disappointed with it yet. Speed rarely is an issue when you're as bulky as that.

      And interestingly enough I recently changes them in my thread. The SpD EVs really weren't doing me much good so I dumped the rest into the other three stats. The spread is now Impish 180 HP / 196 At / 132 Df

      Sleep wasn't nerfed, it actually got better, I meant that ResTalk was nerfed. Because the sleep counter now resets with each switch-in, Milotic may not get the chance to wake up again, and thus would be unable to Rest again to restore its health.

      Both have their uses, depends on what you need. Boiling Water may occasionally conflict with Toxic and vice-versa, though, so I'd go with Dragon Tail.

      how did Sleep get nerfed? I was thinking about Boiling Water/Recover/Toxic/Ice Beam--would I be better off with Dragon Tail over Toxic?
    23. IcyMan28
      I was partial to the ResTalk set we were all talking about in Milotic's thread, but the nerf that sleep has been given means that you might be able to heal back to full health once before being killed; there's no way you can stay asleep for 3 turns AND heal up again.

      So I'd probably go with Calm 240 HP / 252 Def / 16 SpD and run Boiling Water / Recover / Dragon Tail / Ice Beam or Toxic. Thunder Wave and Wow are everywhere, so it shouldn't be too hard to pick up a status. Ice Beam lets you deal with dragons and grass-types straight away, while Toxic lets you poison other bulky water types before phazing them away.

      So what's your idea of the best moveset for Milotic?
