      Gamer boy, I know you have some experience in VGC and do you mind if you could tell me the difference between VGC and Doubles?
      1. Martin.
        Martin.
        The key difference is that VGC is 4v4 rather than 6v6. IMO, this is more fun as it adds an extra layer of prediction to every match. Another difference is that item clause is active. Finally, there is a completely different banlist, as it uses flat rules and there are the yearly regulations which dictate which Pokémon are legal. Oh: and Dark Void isn't banned (in '14 at least)

      what would make some good teammates for lucario in vgc
      1. Martin.
        Martin.
        Mention that Luke needs quite a bit of team support to function, and compare it to Smeargle on the supporter set in that respect. Follow Me and Rage Powder users are good for the offensive sets to lure away super effective hits. Also, Ghost-types are good to give perfect coverage on both attackers, and bulky stuff that Lucario can easily switch in and out with are good. AV Garde is a great teammate (character limit)
        Jun 22, 2014
      2. Martin.
        Martin.
        for its offensive and defensive synergy. Anything which resists types which Lucario is weak to and anything bulky are both important assets in teammates. That's all that I can think of off of the top of my head.

      Hey, mynameisverycreative got banned as you may know, so he got me to make an account so I could ask his questions and stuff :D
      He would like to let you know that you are free to take over the Emboar thread whenever you wish :D

        He dropped Emboar anyway and I would be fine doing it, but I think I'll wait until one of Lanturn or Ludi is in GP (or I get badged - it is a possibility) to pick up anything else

      Sorry to ask again even after you said no before, but, there has been no real work done on the tyranitar analysis for nearly a month and a half now, on top of that you are working on four analyses whereas the usual slate is three. On top of that the sets you recommend aren't representative of what people have been running. So I ask again may I take over the Tyranitar analysis?
      1. Martin.
        Martin.
        Sure. Just remember to add a mixed scarf set and to slash DD alongside Protect on the mega set. Those were changes which I was doing on a doc just as you posted this. Make sure to say "taken over from gamer boy", tagging where it says gamer boy and linking to the old thread at the top. I was going to say you could you could have it tomorrow anyway because I wanted to do something else in VGC anyway.

      I should mention that Kecleon was meant to be a BULKY setup sweeper, not just setup sweeper. And like i said before you should use the EV spread i provided, the spread you chose was pretty inferior.
      1. MyNameIsVeryCreative
        MyNameIsVeryCreative
        Oh yeah, you obviously don't know how to use Kecleon if you call it 'dead weight', on almost every battle I had Kecleon, he has more often than not pulled his weight for my team. So yeah, don't know what you're doing wrong.

        I was wondering, considering your working a lot of analyses right now and it hasn't been worked on for a while, if I could take over your VGC Tyranitar analysis?

        If not thats fine, too.
        Jun 4, 2014
      3. Martin.
        Martin.
        The only reason that it seems inactive is because the subforum is basically dead (QC member-wise) with noone responding to being tagged and my bid for QC is unresponded-to after ~2 months (give or take). If and when I get QC, I will attempt to revive the subforum, but atm it is relly difficult to get QC checks.

        If you want it you can take it if I decide to reserve something else over it, but atm its a no. I will send u a wallpost if I ever decide to and say so in the reservation thread.

    "It is clear that we are just an advanced breed of primates on a minor planet orbiting around a very average star, in the outer suburb of one among a hundred billion galaxies. BUT, ever since the dawn of civilization people have craved for an understanding of the underlying order of the world. There ought to be something very special about the boundary conditions of the universe. And what can be more special than that there is no boundary? And there should be no boundary to human endeavor.
