if i had two pokemon using super fang on the same pokemon, would it ko?
Super Fang only takes half the actual HP, so if both of your pokemons use Super fang on a single enemy, the opposing pokemon is left with 1/4th of it total HP.
Hey guys, I've been using pokecheck to test a few pokemon and I've been wondering: do pokemon from pokecheck show up as hacked on Nintendo's hack checks? I'm able to use them on GBU, battle videos etc. but they have a ribbon that they shouldn't have. On the site, they say they, 'discourage' using them in official tournaments, but in the case where I cannot obtain these pokemon otherwise, would they be fine?
When you upload them to this site they won't have the ribbon.
Thanks! That is really helpful!
I thought the Pokemon only get the ribbon if you download them from Pokecheck. I only use Pokecheck for its legality checker
Okay, so I'm kind of new to Double Battling (after having been a competitive Singles player for about 5 years now), and what got me into it was the March International Wi-Fi tournament... so after reading the 5th Gen Double Battle guide, I realized that the order in which Pokemon use their moves is decided before the turn begins; for example, things like Icy Wind, Bulldoze, and other attacks that modify Speed don't take effect until the next turn.
Case in point, my question is this: if one or more Pokemon were to switch - causing certain Abilities to be activated - would that affect turn order?
In a hypothetical situation: I have a Sawsbuck out, who would normally be outspeed by Terrakion. My partner is Sableye, and I switch to Ninetales for Sableye's turn, and have Sawsbuck use Horn Leech on Terrakion. Now, both players have confirmed their moves and the turn begins. Since the switch happens before the first Pokemon makes its move, would Ninetales' Drought cause Sawsbuck's Chlorophyll to kick in right away, allowing it to outspeed Terrakion on that turn?... or does my poor Sawsbuck get Close Combat'ed to death before it has a chance to move?
No, in this case Sawsbuck would still be slower on that turn. You would need to Protect with Sawsbuck and wait for the next turn (the first turn selecting moves while the weather is in effect) for it to be faster.
Okay, I kinda thought so, but I wasn't completely sure... thank you very much!
It's worth saying though that speed changes are the only things that take until next turn to come into effect. So for example if your Sawsbuck used Solarbeam on the turn Ninetales switches in, it would get charged up straight away.
Does vgc have nickname clause? im having a strategy up my sleeve
in Random matchup and VGC tournamanents, the pokemons appaer with their default names. So yes there is a "nickname" clause.
you're not allowed to nickname a pokemon the name of another pokemon
He could mean he wants to do this.
Still that's not really good sportsmanship, but there is no rule saying you can't have the name close.
I meant I named two pokemon of the same name. Eg hitmontop=poo magikarp= poo
That's also against the rules. -_-
Even if you did, any nicknames are changed to their default species name for the length of the battle.
How exactly would I go about building a VGC team?
Try to take pointers from some other good teams, and read how that team has synergy. Try some basic teams at first, then once your comfterable you can move on to implementing some of your own strategy and creative move sets. Good luck!
either try building a simple team (read: 252 / 252 spreads and something like ttar, meta, cress, hitmontop, thundurus etc. with thundy and cress knowing swagger and swagger boosting the rest of your team) or you could copy a well known team such as ray's worlds team, cybertron's team that he uses for every event, etc.
Is Gardevoir viable on a Trick Room team, or is it simply too fast?
Minimum speed is 90 at lv50. I personally wouldn't, as there are plenty slower under trick room who will eat you alive. Think slow and bulky (Not Gardevoir unless you really think he's cool)
Gardevoir and chandelure are on the same speed bracket, both have a base speed of 80. About the viability it really depend on your team, with a lot of support chandy is a complete beast, but in the hand of a common player it became really useless thanks to it common weakness and it frail defense.
Gallade gain more usage as physical attacker + TR setter because he has no competition on that department (I mean fighting STAB + TR) but in the case of Gardevoir she have a lot of competition from Cresselia for a bulky supporter + TR ( IMO, even Uxie is better).
Thanks for the responses guys. I know normally there would be many superior pokemon to use over Gardevoir, but I'm making a Hoenn-only team for fun (its actually shaping up pretty well) and I needed a good user of Heal Pulse to provide recovery to Dusclops, Camerupt (for Eruption) and Wailord (for Water Spout). At this point, however, I'm thinking I probably won't use Heal Pulse support anyway, so w/e.
