1. [noparse]TEXT GOES HERE or www.smogon.com[/noparse] makes TEXT GOES HERE and www.smogon.com, respectively. Interchange "www.smogon.com" with whatever site you want to link to. 2. This one should be asked in the OU SQSA, but regardless: Breloom is a good counter, with immunity to Leech Seed, access Spore and STAB Focus/Mach Punch.
