The road to getting 6 level 100 Blisseys is indeed a cruel one. :( Nov 7, 2014

      Theorymon Suggestions:
      * Blissey + Poison Heal : a niche over Chansey making protect more valuable
      * Salamence + Normal typing instead of Flying + Download : to get rid of weaknesses and to underline its mixed offences
      * Uxie + Fairy typing + Unaware : a bulky Stealth Rocker
      * Leafeon + Speed Boost + Earthquake : a Speed Boost user with a move which provides coverage (still loses to status, though)
      1. Dilasc
        Dilasc
        The problem I see with Poison Heal is that Blissey would lose its niche as a status remover. I'm not sure how Status Orbs interact with Heal Bell, but it sounds a bit counterproductive, no?

        Toxic Orb activates after one turn of battle (so you can switch-out & in)

      InvisibleWater
      Theorymon Suggestions:
      - Milotic + Fairy typing and Dazzling Gleam (Good defensive typing, and a STAB move that makes sense flavor-wise)
      - Leafeon + Jump Kick (Hits Steel-types and works well with Knock Off)
      - Salamence + Heavy Slam (Something for the fairies that hits more than once in a blue moon)
      - Flygon + Sand Rush (Would be the fastest user of the ability. Still kinda weak, though.)
    7. nameless90
      nameless90
      Theorymon suggestions:
      * Accelgor with Competitive (a fast suicide lead with Spikes which can punish Psychic Types from defogging in front of it with a +2 SpA i.e. Lati@s)
      * Chesnaught + Sucker Punch (a defensive buff which enables Browser to get past some faster monsters)
      * regular Swampert + Sap Sipper (such as Manectric in base form, this improves the viability of its Mega form)
      1. Valmanway
        Valmanway
        Okay, I'll bring these up with the council.

      Would Blastoise + recover be a good theorymon idea ?
      Or Froslass + Snow Warning?
      Or Togekiss + Moonblast ?
      1. Valmanway
        Valmanway
        We've already done Blastoise with recovery, but I can ask the council about your other two ideas.

        nameless90
        * Meloetta + Scrappy (for both forms) + Knock Off a simple way to boost its attacking prowess

        * regular Venusaur with Chlorofill + Weather Ball legal together to have a new way to have coverage along with (even opposite) weather setters and this is balanced from a bigger 4 MMSS if you want use the Megastone on him

      I'm gonna give your Clear Skies tournament to someone else? It's taking way too much time to get completed and I'd rather have a host who spends more time harassing people and whatnot, especially since your other tournament is also taking way too much time to get completed :/
      1. Valmanway
        Valmanway
        Sorry about that. I'll get things moving again if it isn't too late. I've been somewhat busy lately, but I'll dedicate more time to this and be more assertive from now on.

        I gave Reymedy the current Clear Skies tournament. Feel free to host again in the future tho, but please get your tours going faster. That starts with the current final of the Starter tour.
