Are the next vgc's played on X and Y? and if so why does nintendo hate norcal?
The Autumn Regionals are the last tourney on B2/W2. From then on, it is going to transition into X and Y. Therefore meaning, if you qualify in the fall, you have to switch to X/Y for the Nationals.
Yes, it is.
I've got a Tailwind team featuring Tailwind Staraptor, Imprison Smeargle (to stop Trick Room), Mixed Infernape, Dragon Gem Garchomp, CB Terrakion, and a Rotom-W. I'm struggling against rain teams pretty badly. Any advice on replacing one of my members? Rotom-W is not really doing his "rain-countering" job well, and the rest of the team is inclined to perform badly against water types (I'm looking at you Ludicolo and Kingdra). Oh, and I don't like to use legendaries because this is ingame and I can't RNG anything in BW2. Terrakion is the only exception.
Since the Dialga event is active, I will get it and RNG it. I have kind of quit using tiers and VGC is really all I care about. What nature would be best for Dialga in VGC. Sets in general would be helpful.
P.S. While I am at it, sets for Palkia and Giratina would also be nice if you have any.
You're playing a format where you have 2 Pokemon on the field at a time (until the late stages of a match) and you only have one Pokemon that can comfortably take a strong Water attack so it's not surprising why Rotom-W isn't "countering" rain.
Imprison Smeargle isn't exactly a great way to stop TR since it has to stay on the field for it to work and it lacks bulk. Replacing it with Amoonguss should help with both your rain and TR problems. Water resist, good bulk, and the ability to threaten Politoed makes it a good anti-rain choice and the slow Spore will keep TR teams at bay. It won't single-handedly beat well-made rain or well-made TR teams but it should at least give you a chance.
Dialga is banned in VGC since 2010 until they reveal the rules for x/y
Even though you can't use it, most Dialgas in '10 used Modest or Quiet.
Thank you for actually answering my question. I know that they are all banned. I just want to have the a good nature in case they are allowed again at some point.
Is it a good choice to use Xatu in VGC? I need a utility pokemon in my party but i am afraid to use it.Because it looking weak except its wonderful ability Magic Guard.What you guys think?
Back when Breloom was common, I tested it because it walled it + MB reflected Spores. Needless to say, it was terrible because of its stats and poor movepool...
Did they announce the locations for the all Autumn Regionals for VGC. I was happy when I saw Philly and then I realized it is only TCG.
Edit: Nvm I am a derp.
Just a random question. At what time does the masters division start? I want to go to the washington regional in the spring, but it's going to be extremely hard for me to get there if it starts at 8:00am for masters.
I am in desperate need of help. As usual, I waited for the last second to RNG my team. Well, now nothing is working and I am failing completely. If anyone can offer me these pokemon, I would greatly appreciate it. Btw, they don't need to be trained, evd, but they do need to be from the same evolutionary line.
Quiet Flawless or 0 Atk Ivs
Adamant Flawless or 0 Atk Ivs
Bold Flawless or 0 Atk Ivs
Tbh, I dont care if they are exact but as close as you can offer. In return, I will offer whatever I can but idk what I can offer atm.
Are mascot legendaries (ubers) allowed in vgc doubles?
No. BST 670 and event-only Pokemon are banned.
Whats a good Special Fire Tank with overheat?
Trying to get a good Malmar parter
Greetings, I'm looking to get into competitive VGC and was wondering what anyone thought of this team so far (any/all help is appreciated): Dragonite, Blissey, Togekiss, Forretress, and Wobbuffet. Don't have my 6th yet and moves items finalized yet. Thanks in advance!
That's a line from the VGC analysis of Slowbro. It might be just us but we think that the analysis does not exactly specify what Slowbro's unique qualities are. What can Slowbro do what Slowking cannot?
Are there any local scenes for competitive Pokemon in the Hampton Roads VA area?
252+ Atk Guts Conkeldurr Payback (50) vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Slowbro: 92-110 (45.5 - 54.4%)
252+ Atk Guts Conkeldurr Payback (50) vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Slowking: 120-142 (59.4 - 70.2%)
They was just refering to the fact Slowbro can take physical hits better. In my opinion for a dedicated Trick Room team Slowbro highest special attack and physical bulk is better than Slowking. But going full Trick Room is very risky as you may find yourself unable to set it up that's why Slowking get more usage.
(in the above calc, Slow's spread was 252HP/252 Sp. Atk)
Rotom-H is a good choice, his bulk and interesting array of resistance (4x to steel and 2x to fairy) can really help also he get good support move (will-o-wisp, Thunder wave, pain Split) just add a Sitrus or Lum berry to the mix and try it out.
I have a question about Showdown; When testing a team, should I set them to level 50 or level 100?
it auto-levels them to 50
Another question (lol); how do I ask for help for my current VGC team? Can I just post a thread or is there a specific RMT for VGC 2014?
You can post it in the Others Teams subforum of the RMT section here on Smogon but remember to add the "VGC" tag in title so is way more easy for raters to find it. You can post it on the Rate My Team section of Nuggetbridge too, since they are a VGC exclusive comunity you don't need to add any extra tag and will reach a specific audience.
