    Porygon :>

    Trace is an incredible ability that allows Porygon to check a huge amount of major threats. Combine that with Porygon's beast defenses (it can tank Brave Birds all day) and you have the greatest utility counter in all of LC. But we already know that. What most people don't focus on is Porygon's stellar Special Attack. It is as high as Missy's, but Porygon has STAB and coverage moves with higher BP than Missy, which allows it to run pretty good offensive sets. With Agility and LO Porygon can serve as a solid late-game cleaner, and with a Scarf it becomes the second best Double Rush counter in the game thanks to Trace, and can also Trick it's Scarf onto Lileep or Hippopotas after it has taken care of Drilbur/Sandshrew. Porygon is a very, very versatile Pokemon that is unfortunately viewed as a one-trick pony by a lot of players, so I'm really glad it was chosen for this PotW.

    The great thing about Porygon is that it can fit into almost any style of team, Offense, Balance, Stall etc... It can create a great defensive backbone on balance teams if it is partnered with something that can take on Fighters, Shelmet, Koffing etc... It can pair well with a tonne of pokemon. Trace allows it to take on loads of things whether they're offensive or defensive like Murkrow, Chinchou, Natu etc.
    I'll probably try an offensive Porygon this week as I've never used one before so I'll be sure to post about that at another point.

    Oh, how much I hate playing against Porygon. It should also be clear in the first Post that Analytic IS illegal according with the move legality guide. I have faced Analytic Porygon and it was a REAL pain in the ass as I wasn't prepared for such power.

    I really like the versatility on Porygon but... Is stall viable on LC? I am yet to see a good team build around that strategy; not that I haven't tried it.

    Maybe I should give Porygon a try on a heavily stallish team ^^.

    Ah, that it is. I fixed it! Thanks for pointing that out. Too bad though, it is probably the best user of Analytic in any tier since its bulk and power in the Little Cup metagame, along with its low Speed, are unmatched by anything else with the ability.

    It does have to be said, stall isn't the best in LC, but if you were to make a stall team Porygon would be great on it. It's great at switching into Natu who would otherwise give stall teams hell. It's the best feeling in the world when you switch into a Natu using Toxic ;)

    Porygon's a great mon that works as others have mentioned as a great utility check to several of the metagame's most dangerous threats, including misdreavus, chinchou, and murkrow. Porygon fits bulky offense very nicely as it has a great list of options on how it can support its team other than checking a lot of threats like going offensive with a choice scarf or spreading paralysis. A really solid mon in my view.

    I'll be giving it a run under the alt: Duck time

    this is why I love pory <3 Cracking a sand lileep wide open with foongus's help in only 102 turns! http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/lc4033040

    Also, good teamates are poison or ghost types to handle its crippling fighting weakness

    Porygon is an amazing LC pokemon. Its versatility is what makes it such a great pokemon i think because it can run a great defensive set with good bulk and acces to Recover, Toxic, Thunderwave. Porygon can also run offensive sets like the choice scarf set and even a Life Orb attacker set with Recover due to Porygons good movepool. Not only does Porygon have great stats and movepool but he has two amazing abilities in Trace and Download. Trace especially is so good on Porygon. Seriously the potential to trace abilities like Flash Fire from Houdnour, Regenerator from Foongus/Mienfoo, Volt Absorb from Chinchou and Sand Rush from Drilbur are absolutely huge. This makes Porygon a great utitlity pokemom as well.

    Double Rush an increasing stragey revolving around Hippotas and Sandshrew and Drilbur are all stopped completely by Choice Scarf Porygon which is absolutely huge nowadays. Seriously the ability to almost be able to beat a whole style of play with one pokemon is utterly amazing. For any one confused this is the set i am talking about

    Porygon @ Choice Scarf | Trace
    Timid | 76 HP / 236 SpA / 196 Spe
    Ice Beam | Tri Attack | Shadow Ball | Hidden Power [Grass] / Trick

    After tracing sand rush and with a Choice Scarf intact Porygon can outspeed Drilbur, Sandshrew and Hippotas and pick them all of with Ice Beam.

    I am also interasted to find out if any one has had succes using a Download Porygon. Maybe some sort of Agility+ Life Orb Download set would be quite cool. Thoughts?

    The issue with the Agility + 3 Attacks set is that Download is illegal with Tri Attack, which leaves it without a STAB attack, and relying on BoltBeam + filler.

    That Choice Scarf set is the set I'm having the most success with, as the standard defensive set just doesn't seem to pull its weight. On the other hand, the utility of a 21 Speed revenge killer, who can Trace Sand Rush, doubling its Speed (and making it immune to sand damage, which is always nice), can't be underestimated. It can revenge kill a good swathe of the metagame, and can also Trace and benefit from abilities such as Regenerator (revenge killing Mienfoo), Natural Cure (2HKOing Eviolite Staryu after Stealth Rock), and Volt Absorb (letting it switch in for free on Chinchou given prediction).

    My favourite move on the Choice Scarf set is almost certainly Trick, as it can really mess up balanced teams. Lileep is a common switch-in to Porygon, as with its high Special Defense and HP, it easily walls the standard defensive set and can set up Stealth Rock against it. With Trick, you can cripple Lileep for the game, as it can't stand not being able to switch moves.

    Now, it is definitely not enough just to have Choice Scarf Porygon to beat sand teams, I'm finding, as a good player will have something like Munchlax which giggles at anything Porygon throws at it, and deals 37.5 - 45.83% with Pursuit or 66.66 - 79.16% with Return. This starts to rack up, as Munchlax is absolutely a hard counter. Using a Will-O-Wisp Nasty Plot Misdreavus works out excellently in partnership with Porygon, as once burned, Munchlax is doing a mere 18.18 - 22.72% to Misdreavus and 33.33 - 37.5% to Porygon with Return. Alternatively, as Misdreavus doesn't really beat Munchlax in itself (although it does check all Fighting-types in the meta well except for Timburr), a bulky Fighting-type such as Timburr or Croagunk is handy to deal with Munchlax, Chinchou, and Magnemite, who can take Ice Beam with impunity (the latter less so) and retaliate with STAB Drain Punch or, in the case of Timburr, set up with Bulk Up, which typically means it can beat both Drilbur and Sandshrew.

    Just my thoughts on Scarf Porygon. I don't claim to be an expert in Little Cup, but these are a couple of things I've found.

    Why use Round when you are already using Ice Beam and Thunderbolt, both of which are stronger and have near-perfect coverage together (save the ubiquitous Chinchou)?

    Going to nominate magnemite for potw 3, even though it doesn't work by nominations. Magnemite hits 14 speed neutrally, so he can go modest and still outspeed diglett/voltorb/elekid holding a scarf. He can also go bulky with eviolite to back up his obscene base 70 defense, which along with his steel typing makes him a hard to break wall. Unlike many other steels, magnemite has plenty of power, hitting 20 spa modestly and running the strongest electric moves in little cup, with STAB tbolt or thunder, along with volt switch. He can also trap steels with hpfire. His excellent defensive typing allowing him to work incredibly with fighting types, with a 4x resist and godly base defence to sponge up brave birds. He has 3 great abilities in sturdy, which can let him switch into a drain punch in a pinch, magnet pull, which can trap steels, and his dream world ability analytic. If you can sacrifice volt switch, magnemite can go incredibly bulky and powerful with eviolite and analytic, giving him an effective life orb boost along with +1 def/specdef.


    tl;dr sorry for the wall of text, magnemite for potw3

    Realized that I haven't played any games on iss since the reset. I guess it is a clean alt anyways, even though it really isn't an alt?

    [​IMG]

    I used this team, as it was the only team I had lying around that had Porygon. Defensive Porygon is basically RestTalk Chinchou. There are a few minor differences: Porygon is a better Misdreavus check, Chinchou is a better Chinchou and MixKrow check, but they play pretty much the same. Porygon, however, has an easier time walling random threats, such as Archen, post-Gem Drifloon, and others, as Recover gives it much more reliable recovery and prevents Sleep Talk hax from screwing you over. Due to Recover only healing 50% it's pretty important to keep Porygon at high health, as otherwise it just stops being a check to virtually everything and instead just dies on the switch-in. Thunder Wave is absolutely essential to Porygon's success: by outspeeding the foe, Porygon can just stall for full paralysis with Recover, which doesn't take very long. Thunder Wave also cripples Life Orb/Choice Scarf Mienfoo, and is a pretty big hinderance to standard defensive/utility Mienfoo anyways. In general, as long as it has more than 75% of its health, defensive Porygon can wall nearly anything that doesn't have a STAB Fighting-type attack.

    On the topic of offensive Porygon: I played a few games on a different account with Choice Scarf Porygon and Trick Room Porygon. Choice Scarf Porygon is pretty much the best counter to sand teams outside of Snover, and Snover brings its own drawbacks with hail and a Stealth Rock weakness. However, versus non-sand teams, it's a really mediocre Scarfer and only manages to save some utility through Trace. It's viable, but it really only should be used on teams with a big sand weakness that can't use Snover. Trick Room Download Porygon is interesting, but even at +1 Attack Return isn't killing much. It was pretty good in Gen 4, but Eviolite just makes everything too tanky :(

    On teammates: a Ghost-type is pretty essential. Something like Misdreavus or Frillish that can switch into opposing Mienfoo is even better. I used Drifloon, which is pretty risky due to Stone Edge, but it can OHKO every major Fighting-type, which is nice. A Scraggy counter is also necessary: Thunder Wave helps out a bit, but Shed Skin can just destroy you if you're unlucky. Defensive Mienfoo is the most common counter, but Croagunk, Timburr, and a few others work as well. A Rapid Spinner is nice but not neccessary; Stealth Rock isn't that bad, but a few layers of Spikes can really hinder Porygon's walling capability, and Toxic Spikes is a death sentence. Heal Bell is nice too; utility Chinchou is too similar to Porygon to really use, so utility Misdreavus is probably the best choice. Porygon can't wall Archen or Drifloon if it switches in on a Flying Gem-boosted Acrobatics, so having something to tank that is pretty necessary (I didn't have a good wall for either, and had a lot of problems against them as a result).

    Porygon is really interesting, but it's really pigeonholed into either a defensive set or a Choice Scarf set as a result of Eviolite. Offensive sets (Agility/Trick Room) just don't have enough power to sweep in this metagame (Agility Chinchou > Agility Porygon in most cases anyways).

    If we're posting our peaks now, http://puu.sh/1oJ5T. I used my current team which I may end up doing an rmt on, which happened to already feature porygon. I ran standard twave/recover/tri attack/shadow ball porygon but with a modest nature, giving it a bit more power over other porygons. It is really good at sponging hits like brave bird or dark pulse, and if it traces a prankster it turns into a monster, spreading status and priority shuffling.

    Congrats to iss and JacobNinja for reaching the requirements this round with Porygon! Unfortunately, we didn't have as many new discoveries as we did with Riolu, but we can't fault Porygon for being an excellent defensive Pokemon.

    This week, our Pokemon of the Week is a bit more rare than Porygon or Riolu. Sporting a typing unique to itself in Little Cup, this poisonous toad's stats and movepool are some of the most balanced in the game, which makes it a mystery whether it's running a physical, special, or mixed set, while excelling at all of them. Croagunk finds itself as Pokemon of the Week this week!

    [​IMG]
    Croagunk
    Poison- / Fighting-type
    48 HP / 61 Atk / 40 Def / 61 SAtk / 40 SDef / 50 Spe
    Abilities: Anticipation / Dry Skin / Poison Touch​

    Croagunk has plenty of boosting moves, but a more defensive set based around its excellent defensive typing seems to be the most popular in the metagame currently. Can a boosting set work, or will Croagunk's excellent defensive utility prove to be better than any offensive set? As always, let's try this week to find what works and what doesn't with Croagunk!

    Remember that anyone who reaches the top 3 with a fresh alt and discusses what made them succeed will be that much closer to the Community Contributor badge!

    Hmm... Croagunk looks interesting. I might try a very bulky set to replace foongus as my fighting resist. It definitely has a lot of options, as it is one of those dpp pokemon that have mixed stats and movepools, like infernape. Also, why not hide the previous two pokemon into the op, and edit croagunk into the op?

    Croagunk is such an amazing Little Cup pokemon!(I know i have said that about all the PotW but come on there all good!) Its ability to be defensive while offensive at the same time is great and this makes Croagunk an easy fit for bulky offense teams given its amazing priority moves and good typing. Vaccum Wave, Fake Out and Sucker Punch are awesome, and it lets Croagunk beat down Shell Smashers and Scraggy while still remaining an offensive threat to your opponents team. Seriously you know a pokemon is good when another pokemon has to change his coverage almost exclusively for it (think Zen Headbutt Scraggy). However it seems to me that the bulky set is the only Croagunk set people see. People forget that Croagunk has both Bulk Up and Nasty Plot, and unlike Riolu, Croagunk actually has the bulk to pull them off. The coverage options for these two boosting sets are also good, as the Bulk Up set can run Drain Punch for recovery, Ice Punch and can keep the deadly priority that is Sucker Punch. The Nasty Plot set can use Shadow Ball and Vacuum Wave which iirc has unresisted coverage in Little Cup, Vacuum Waves priority is also good on this set.

    Although i dont recomend using rain in Little Cup because it is absolutely terrible seriously look at this embarrassing team i made http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3463735. Before i go on about Croagunk in fairness to me this was my second post and first competitive team although it wasnt really that competitive and a lot has changed some 500+ posts later! Anyway as i was saying although i dont reccomend it if you are going to use rain in Little Cup Life Orb Croagunk is quite cool because with Dry Skin essentially canceling out Life Orb recoil Croagunk can abuse super powerful priority which is nice.

    Unfortunatly i have no acces to pokemon showdown atm so i wont be able to participate in the ladder challenge however do excpect that i am going to make some good posts in the PotW and get invloved in discussion!

    One aspect of Croagunk that is often ignored is its usefulness as a special wall. Dry Skin and creative EVing allows it to wall Staryu and Chinchou fairly effectively, and Drain Punch will 2-3HKO both. With Shadow Ball and Sucker Punch, it can also become a fairly good Misdreavus check, as even at +2 Misdreavus is unable to OHKO a properly EV'd Croagunk.

    The main problem with Croagunk right now is that it just isn't bulky enough to justify its abysmal damage output. Croagunk is weak compared to something like Scraggy or Timburr, and doesn't have the utility that Mienfoo brings. Sure, it can work as a special wall, but Chinchou or Porygon work just as well or better. As a revenge killer, its Fake Out and Sucker Punch are weak compared to others, and something like a Murkrow Sucker Punch would do far more damage. Since Scraggy isn't as common anymore, it's really hard to justify using Croagunk over Mienfoo or Timburr.
