    Yeah, either way I'm thinking Rest should be banned.

    My first team. I'll be on Oi's server if anyone wants to test.

    I think Breloom and Scizor will still be very good. Crobat has some potential, I think. It's just that since supporters may carry one or two coverage moves, it will be much easier to play around taunt.

    The reason he is using such odd and stupid looking items is because my format auto removes items on battle, so you need an item in the team builder, but they won't work in battle because they get removed, so it's easier to click the funniest sounding pokemon-item combo in the team builder than think it out.
