      In the battle maison thread, you used a Jolly Gliscor for Rotations. 212 HP / 44 Atk / 252 Speed. Is there anything specific that spread does over a 252 HP/Speed spread?
      I ask because I trained up max Speed/HP Jolly Gliscor for Rotations. :P

        212 HP gave it 177 HP, which is the best possible Poison Heal number for Gliscor (makes 44 HP Subs, then heals 22), while also having a little more attack power. If Gliscor has more HP (as Jumpman's set does), it can lose 1 HP with a Sub+Protect cycle (lose 45 HP to make a Sub, heal 22), but I'm not sure how that works out with the 252 HP set. The extra HP or two you save may also not be that relevant; at most, you lose 16 HP by using up all of your Subs, and the added bulk from the extra EVs may come into play more often than those 16 max (more often it will probably be 3-4) HP from having 177. Good luck!

        Waaaaay before. I actually totally forgot I had written that, and therefore already basically come up with the team (minus Growl, of course) months in advance, before I'd even broken 2000 with Whimsicott/Durant/Drapion. Nice catch! That's pretty funny when I think about it :)

        Thanks for cuing me in! I totally missed that post, but I (later) saw his video on Youtube of Kangliscune where he mentioned getting to 2516. I actually passed that a really long time ago; I'm at 2800ish right now. I know the 3000 mark is relatively close, but I somehow can't find the motivation to hit it. So I'm trying out a new team and attempting to prove myself as a goodstuffs battler; we'll see how that goes :) After I lose, I may try one last hurrah for 3K with Team Plaguarism.

        Here's your motivation for going for 3000: YOU CAN DO IT
        I can't wait to see your goodstuffs team though \o/

      Hey vap, I'm currently raising up the equivalent to your whimsi/durant/drap team so i can get a good ranking on singles. i know it's cheap but I spent a long time over the past few days getting all those egg moves onto Whimsicott so I'm going to use it one way or another. Anyhow, I just wanted to ask about the revamped EVs on your Durant; what do 228 Spe EVs let you outspeed?

        I meant to add that I won't be going for leaderboard points. Sorry, didn't mean to offend. It is for the berries. Thanks!

        To clarify, by "ranking" I absolutely didn't mean the leaderboard. Poor choice of wording, it's purely my own amusement. I understand your point about WHY the leaderboard exists, and it's challenging me to hone my skills with another team I was using for singles that failed at 96, before i even knew about the maison thread or any of the current top players (besides Jump, I've known about his exploits since DPP).
