        Post in the Maison thread. Just give a good team and strategy discussion and post a picture with the streak length person, since we can't upload new videos.

      Thank you for the Maison update, boss--I assume you've been plugging away at Tree since the Global Mission started, so...

        It's a cool team, so sweet to see you hit 1000! And yup, still plugging along with Dragonite / Chansey / Mega Slowbro in the Tree. Even though I increasingly think Dragonite is not the optimal lead, I don't want to make any radical changes in the middle of a streak, since I know from experience that I almost always encounter early avoidable losses on my first runs with a new team as I better get a feel for it.

      NoCheese,
      I would like to post a report and be included on the list for Battle Tree Super Multi Records with Real Live Person.
      You posted on the main Battle Tree Hub and said that, “Requirements for Super Mutli battles are to be determined, but will likely be lower. I'm currently leaning towards 60 wins.”

      there's a small typo in the battle tree singles record, '#30. Makorel, (94) - Porgon-Z / Mega Gyarados / Kartana' (Porgon-Z instead of Porygon-Z). just thought i'd let you know

      Given that the SuMo update has made minor changes to battle tree sets, do you think it'll be necessary to annotate pre-update streaks on the future battle tree leaderboard as "v1.0" or similar?
      1. NoCheese
        NoCheese
        I don't think the changes will prove big enough to necessitate that, especially since they pale in comparison to the impact that Pokemon Bank will have, and we've never segregated streaks based on bank availability. But I'm certainly willing to change my mind if things look to be substantially impacted.

      couple "errors or omissions:" my greninja singles streak is missing the ORAS mark, and turskain's 1000 streak with team leer is part of his current ongoing 2k with vile/mence/raichu whereas they're now listed as two separate streaks
      also grats on 1000+ lol, been a couple eventful weeks for the leaderboard :>
      1. NoCheese
        NoCheese
        Thanks, I've corrected things. And yeah, busy times on the leaderboard, with a number of big new streaks! It's one of the things that's really impressed me about the maison and our maison community: even this deeply into gen 6, we're still putting together new great teams with unexpected Pokemon. I know I sure don't get to 1000 in Singles without all the great forum discussion!

      should i drop hp or defense to make up for that higher speed?
      1. NoCheese
        NoCheese
        I'm not sure which is better here without running a bunch of calcs on specific threats. I don't think it's a huge issue either way. If you do decide to run Substitute (which I assume you aren't, given your desire to hit the magic Speed number) you'll want to make sure your HP divided by 4 leaves a remainder of 1, but on the Icy Wind set, that's not an issue. Note that with the slightly reduced bulk, +2 Garchomp will have a slight chance of OHKOing you with an Earthquake critical hit, but no way around that if you want the Speed. Jumpman 16's original discussion of his Maison Suicune and its spread is available here: http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/battle-maison-discussion-records.3492706/page-48#post-5205453

      Yo, I haven't participated in maison in ages, but I do remember user turskain being incredibly influential. pretty sure he was the dude with that nigh unbeatable Whimsi/Drapion team. He's also ~ in #battlemaison; for such a small channel and seeing how IRC activity is the past couple years, there's actually a decent amount of discussion that goes on in there. Unless he already has a badge lol.

      afaik any post can technically be moved from anywhere, it's just that the dates must still line up properly - therefore unless i'm horribly mistaken it should be able to move any of your posts from somewhere between jun 3 2011 and jun 15 2012 to the second place of the thread
      1. The Dutch Plumberjack

        (if you only have an inconsequential post from back then in a different forum you're obviously gonna need a smod to move it to the maison thread, but afaik it should be possible if you have any post at all from back then that you don't mind sacrificing)

      Hi! Just a minor correction with the Rotations record list: I'm listed as 4th (422) and Aussieman000 is 5th (426), those should be flipped.

      Glad to know you and others are still going for streaks! Sadly I've had no motivation since New Years :(
      1. NoCheese
        NoCheese
        Whoops! Thanks for the heads up; I've fixed the error. I'm loving how much life the Maison's had even without any changes (save the AI partners) since XY. The thread's just crossed the 3000 post mark! So I'm sure that when your motivation returns, there will still be plenty of streak/team/theorymon discussion to be had!

        Grin. No, I'm not that crazy. Not yet, at least. Still plugging away with Camerupt, though at a slower pace than previously. For quite a while, I've had the urge to use my current custom title quote, and once I actually made that change, it seemed fitting to choose an avatar to match. But worry not, default Camerupt will likely rise again!

        Just read it, congrats. I won't be playing ORAS maison until I finish my next playthrough of AS, I think I'll try out a few weird gimmicks / sets or maybe a different new mega in each team or something to spice it up..

        How potent is Superpower on Eelektross? If you change to Assault Vest would you consider changing it to Drain Punch? Could also maybe move some EVs into attack. With Camerupt's huge offensive presence I'm not so sure how bulky 'Tross needs to be
        Dec 12, 2014
      3. NoCheese
        NoCheese
        It's hard to say so far, as Eelektross gets by far the least use of anything on my team. But even with the Eel's good base Attack and the Life Orb, Superpower may not quite get as many KOs as I want, which would certainly push me more towards Assault Vest and a play for the 2HKO style. Discharge has been disappointing, though, as the spread attack penalty really weakens it. I'm likely to shift to Thunderbolt. Discharge's one big advantage is that it gives me a "free" way to hit stuff that's been Endeavored but for whatever reason not hit by Night Shade / Brick Break, while still also getting some damage in on its partner.

        There's also the possibility of trying another "emergency" trick room setter, perhaps with sufficient bulk/priority to make a decent catch all in the event I somehow fail to get Trick Room up cleanly early on. Had some real trouble one battle with a first turn Blizzard freeze of Dusclops, so considering ways to help protect against that.

        I have not yet played any of the Maison in my copy of Alpha Sapphire yet, as I've been doing the grunt work of grabbing TMs and Mega Stones, filling my Pokedex, etc. But the Wally rematch thing sounds reasonable. Post on the Battle Maison thread and ask and I'm sure you'll be able to get confirmation there. The part about AI cheating and making perfect counter teams is a standard unsubstantiated whine and should be ignored.
