    That is discouraging. I don't like being tied to use X thing because it is necessary to survive, it turns the environent into a game of Chess which that guy who sees the openng first wins or the guy who makes even the slightest mistake losses. But that is the Nature of the beast I guess...

    Getting back go this idea: Some posters suggested getting Reuniclus in there, that Bronzong, Emboar, and Toterra are terrible, and that Weather and Trick Room Together are not a solid idea. I still think it is a good idea, with Sandstorm being the most viable Weather. Anyone else got more ideas...

    Is Unburden worth using? I can see a few funny scenarios based on Unburden, Lum Berry, a Friendly Swagger, and Acrobatics... EDIT: I'm asking and posting here too much...I should shut up now...

    A tangent but related question (and this will sound noobish...sorry), what is Goodstuffs? From what I have seen, it looks like building a team of strong Pokemon with strong movepools with not overarching theme/strategy, so while you don't have a theme to exploit, neither can your opponent hamper...

    Interesting, didn't notice quite a few on the list are slow Pokemon. But I didn't I intend / want to pigeon hole into such strategy. :-( Maybe I should update the list... I know, I know; Strategies like Trick Room or Weather are used a lot because they work, but I am not into "mainstream" /...

    I have a rather odd/complex question... Of the following Pokemon, which can usually be used to good effect as Pairs?: Krookodile Arcanine Driftlim Golurk Chandelure Rotom Jellicent (I like ghosts too much don't I?) Vaporeon Espeon Umbreon Jolteon Lucario Flygon Zoroak Excavalier Scizor...

    Well there I go assuming stuff that doesn't work as I want.

    How does Volt Switch / U-Turn user with Negative Stats interact with a Contrary recipient?

    There is always a point (in this case, it is going for a theme). ;)

    Well, it seems everything I think about is a stinker competitively. :/ Edit: Is it possible to do a viable and good team based on Gen I Non-Legendary (breedable) Pokemon? Same question for Gen V.

    How useful is a Special based or Mixed Emboar? I mainly want to know because I find it hilarious it can learn Scald. Yeah, a Fire type can Burn you with Water. Sooooo funny. Still, it could be unexpected (the using Specials I mean, I think most use the thing as a pure Physical Attacker).

    Oh, I didn't mean all of them in one team. I meant who would be a good partner for each of them. :)

    My interesting bit was in the haha fun interesting not serious but point taken. New questions: Who would make a good Partner(s) to Slowbro/Slowking, Arcanine, and Emboar? Are there any strategies that are used that aren't Trick Room, Weather, or Gravity?
  14. VGC Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer - Mark II

    Anyone ever tried running both Slowbro and Slowking together? I think they'd make an interesting pair if anything.

    Can you provide me a link to the Teams? But honestly, I'm not so keen on copying other's Teams. I have hated that way of thinking ever since I played Magic The Gathering back in the day and half the players I knew net decked their card lists and showed no creativity or soul.

    I though about using it instead of Bronzong but that would make it half the Team weak to Dark. If I switched the other Trick Room user (Jellicent) with it, I would loose my STAB Water user.

    How well does Trick Room interact with Weather? I was thinking of doing a Team based on Trick Room with a Weather as a sub theme (so 4 of the 6 ready for Weather). Example (rough idea) Brozong (Trick Room Setter) Jellicent (Trick Room setter) Emboar (Hammer Arm under Trick Room :D)...

    Trick Room countering should be rather easy, just include someone who can flip it back I assume? I still find it odd Tailwind isn't used much. It is the good type of odd though, as it might make the idea unexpected and kinda original. I don't tend to like using cookie-cutter Teams.
  19. VGC Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer - Mark II

    How common are Tailwind based teams? Who are the best Tailwind users? How many Tailwind users would be appropriate? EDIT: How useful/strong is Cloud Nine? Is Golduck the best user (seems like it)?
