    Battle Maison Discussion & Records

    I got through to the Chatelaine in OR by borrowing turkstain's Greninja/Lucario for triples team. I think I've got a feel for this now. I'm liking how even the easy battles are still fun. It's like there's less perfect matchups, but more opportunity to recover from mistakes - without the battle...

    Generation Showdown [Online Competition] Finished!

    I like Grass Knot. I know spare moveslots are hard to come by in doubles, but I wanted to comment with another way of stopping Groudon-P. Rayquaza can run Waterfall/Aqua Tail to always OHKO, because Air Lock negates evaporation. It gets pretty good coverage alongside Dragon Ascent, too. Coming...

    Battle of Hoenn [Online Competition] - Finished! Erebyssial Wins!

    Gah, probably a bit late with this! Sorry. The main reason to use Acid Spray in OU is for countering bulky Calm Mind users such as Clefairy or Suicune, since it offsets two of their turns of using Calm Mind, on top of hitting Clefairy super-effectively. Latias and Sableye-Mega are the only two...

    Battle of Hoenn [Online Competition] - Finished! Erebyssial Wins!

    I know it's a super offensive format, but I'm sorta tempted to run stall. Skarmory + Altaria-M can handle a lot on their own, just need 4 members who can handle specific threats a little better depending on what I see in the other team. I'm thinking Rhyperior for Salamence-M, and maybe...

    I have a suggestion for your Breloom. If you can get one with Technician it would free up the item slot for Focus Sash and add a lot of power to his STAB moves. As for your issues with Grass-types, there are a lot of good candidates for replacing Azumarill that would be more effective than...

    Ask simple questions here! [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

    My EVs aren't saving to my team properly - everything seems to be in order when I check the export, but in battle I end up with these awful random distributions. Here's a screenshot to demonstrate: http://imgur.com/xFa3Vln It does this in both the Battle of Hoenn and VGC15 tiers, though I'm...

    Yeah it's just stupidly powerful, sometimes I would sweep without a boost if I outsped the other team and there was no Dragons or Fire immunities. Of course, the difference going from Fire Punch to Flare Blitz is much greater than Return to Double Edge. I'd love to try Zard X in Super Singles...

    I lost at battle 427, here's the video: 9XPG-WWWW-WWXW-ZQ4R. I was distracted by something else so I made a huge misplay on turn 1. The AI capitalised by confusing and taunting multiple of my mons. I guess I should have used proper switching to shed the confusion - it wasn't a particularly tough...

    Battle Maison Discussion & Records

    Yeah that's understandable. And thanks! Rotations is my favouirite mode because it's the most like 6v6 singles, the AI can make some amazingly good predictions at times. If it wasn't for the suboptimal sets/EV spreads/random abilities/lack of Megas, it might actually make good offline practice...

    Well, there's only a couple on the ladder. But Sand is a really useful weather to have in the Maison, breaking Sashes and chipping off missed KOs. I haven't tried it myself, but I would definitely say it's a viable team type. At first glance I would say Mega Garchomp is probably the best Sand...

    Hey Prof. Birch, I would like to enter the VGC practise tournament. IGN: Wally FC: 0834-3304-9683 Do I need to have the Poochyena uploaded now? I'm doing some last minute EV training, so it might only go up a few minutes before we start...

    #smogonvgc Live Practice Tournament 2 - Landorus Giveaway FRIDAY

    So there's around 19 hours till this starts, right? I haven't played VGC since Gen V, so this sounds like fun. I need to take a break from Battle Maison so I can breed->wonder trade->get PP Ups, anwyay. And that Landorus is quite tempting. I didn't SR for long, but mine ended up at...

    SD Slash is cool. I just wish King's Shield blocked status so I could switch to my status absorber instead of wasting the turn and taking a Will-O-Wisp. I was trying a mixed Aegislash with bulky 'Mence, but I got annoyed with not having a Dark/Ghost resist. Those defence drops from Crunch/Shadow...

    Cool to see someone else trying this combination! I'm about to take something similar into Super Rotations, looking to get my top spot back. Out of curiosity, is your Aegislash of the Swords Dancing kind commonly found here, or the special/mixed kind more common in competitive play? And what do...

    Battle Maison Discussion & Records

    I got through Super Doubles with Salamence-Mega, Landorus-T, Tyranitar and Scizor. Hyper Voice + Earthquake wrecks so many things. Now that I'm at battle 70 I'm replacing everything but Mence for better type synergy, having too many close calls against Blizzard users. I still can't decide on my...
