Well I'll admit that my team probably isn't the best way to use gravity. The team was just sort of thrown together with a bunch of pokemon I had lying around from other teams I'd made (Starmie was the only pokemon I went out of my way to obtain). I was a little concerned that I wasn't abusing it enough and I was even contemplating changing my team to include more proper abusers. I think what held me back from doing so was that I kept getting into situations that prevented Starmie from activating gravity and surviving the first turn. For example, there were at least 5 occasions where I met an opponent leading with jolteon and a fake out user (ambipom and weavile are particularly nasty as they outspeed infernape and can fake out me before I can fake out them). That leaves me in an annoying situation where I can either fake out jolteon and hope that the opponents fake out user doesn't hit starmie, or fake out the opponents fake outer and hope that jolteon misses the thunder on starmie (note that I have met thunder jolteon at least 50 times in all of my streaks and I haven't seen it miss thunder ONCE). Alternatively, I can switch out and hope that I can come in and use gravity later. Usually what I do in this situation is try fake out jolteon and hope to get up gravity. I then switch out regardless of whether gravity was set up or not. In the times where gravity wasn't activated, I was thankful for having reliable moves that allowed me to get out of these situations. Still, I guess I could afford to through focus blast on Hydreigon or something. I was aware that wasn't using a ground move at all. I decided to focus on the accuracy-raising effects of gravity because I guess I just dislike hurting my team mates with earthquake (and I can't turn to levitate because gravity negates that) and I currently don't have access to a decent earth power user. I suppose I could come up with a better team that doesn't mind taking team earthquakes though. I might give it a try some other time but for now I have other things I want to focus on. Thanks for the feedback though.
