    I've seen the combo of Extreme Killer Arceus and Extreme Killer Linoone before.

    A traditional offensive combo, similar to Mence/Quaza. Send in your Arceus to weaken threats so the all powerful Linoone can do the cleaning.

    Infenal Team's team:Lucario / Charizard / Moltres / Victini / Typhlosion / Reshiram
    Enough said, and he never switched out.

    He actually did quite well considering I had a rain team but Giga Impact Moltres, Focus Punch Typhlosion and Flare Blitz Charizard were just stupid.

    Edit : D-Tail/Flamethrower/Draco Meteor Garchomp, non-sturdy Forretress. That is all

    This is actually the preferred set on a hail team, seeing as your Sturdy is broken the first turn you're in anyway.

    But judging by that Garchomp set, I don't think he was taking that into consideration...

    Well I've seen quite a bit of "silly things", mostly In the first few matches of laddering but.

    -Chansey with Defense Curl + CM + Softboiled + Flamethrower
    -Choice Scarf Heatran w/Explosion.
    -Expert Belt Blissey anyone?
    And My Personal Favorite: Support Rayquaza w/both Sunny Day and Rain Dance on a team running SS Tyranitar lol

    I don't know if this has been encountered yet, but I just saw Frustration Chandelure. I don't know what the plan behind that was.

    I once saw a guy using Stunfisk in Ubers (If I remember correctly, it was a moderator who was using it).

    A guy used imprison+spore smeargle.
    When I asked him what it was for, he said to imprison and then transform. Dittio would do that alot better

    I've seen that done with someone nicknaming Arceus-Normal to Arceus-Electric. Some guy got so confused when ExtremeSpeed was doing so much damage.

    EDIT: Just ran into a guy who turned on the battle timer first turn, then lost to it a couple turns later.

    Does Giratina-A with Protect and Shadow Force count as a bad set? If so, then yeah.

    And also:


    Waterfall/Brick Break/Surf/Sleep Talk Choice Banded Kyogre.

    Why is the showdown ladder so bad? I just had this battle against some guy using mist ball / luster purge Latis.

    There was also this guy who had a team of 5 boosting sweepers and a Kyogre. He tried setting up on me over half the freakin battle. He also had his Kyogre use Surf on my Tentacruel like 5 times in a row while it died of toxic.

    And these weren't 'noobs' who just started playing. Their ratings were around 1500s-1700s (is that any good?)

    The Protect + Shadow Force combo is used for extreme PP stall. Regardless, it's still a silly idea :l

    Often, ladders can become to inflated to the point that getting around 1600 with a new alt can be a piece of cake. All a new alt needs is a few wins to get similar ranking. This inflation is a HUGE problem with the OU ladder. Honestly, a rank that is in the high sixteen hundreds to mid seventeen hundreds is still a solid rank, but if it was earned on a fresh alt, the significance is deeply diminished.

    1700 is really bad, get up around 2000 with a lowish deviation and you might play some people who know what they are doing.
