  1. VGC18 building team around M-Mence

    I'm fine without metagross, I spent alot of time on salamence and lele so those two are a must on my team, what do you think will go well with mega salamence and lele? So I'm thinking something like a fantasy core with some support Dragon: Mega Salamence Fairy: Tapu Lele Steel: ...
  2. VGC18 building team around M-Mence

    I want to build a fantasy core (dragon+metal+fairy) around my favourite pokemons (Salamence, Metagross, Tapu Lele) for VGC18 and upcoming regionals in my country (not US). I'm thinking Mega salamence with hyper voice/double edge as a mixed attacker. Can metagross fill in the metal type I'm...

    Every teams looks about the same?!?! Well not exactly but you know what I mean. Why is there not a single eevee pass team? I know its abit of a cheese but it dominated some of the south american premier challenge.

    Just gonna make an eevee cheese team with the core eevee/clefairy/smeargle, which ones should be my sweepers? (I saw a few arcanine/fini/bulu), what are the typings and choice available? Is a dragon sweeper like mence/chomp viable?

    What is pokebank, when does it come out and why would it give access to tailwing and hyper voice, heat wave etc? Do I GET the pokemon from the bank or something?
  6. VGC 17 Discussion Thread

    I looked at quite a few builds, can you explain how building around a core works. Are my complimentary roles supposed to addressed the weakness of my core. E.g. I might have some Tapu Koko, Raichu core with heavy electric spam but they are weak to ground and raichu might be weak to physical...

    Yea I saw that, he used it to balanced his guru+torkoal trickroom team, but I dont really wanna run a TR team. I dunno many team archetypes too, except rain teams, maybe some sort of weather team like hail...

    how does he fit with the rest of the team though. What members should I build around him. Slow pokemons to deal with trick room? one steel type to bash the fairies and the tapus? is celeesteela or do i need ANOTHER steel type?

    How does an intimate pokemon fit into a team. Is having 2 ok? or you should only have 1 at max?? Also I'm new to VGC and seeking out good team members for modest salamence, it know it is a generally good sweeper but how does it fit into the rest of the team and what team should i put it in and...

    How does Metagross fit into a meta game, would he be a trickroom tank/sweeper? Does relax nature work well with Metagross (increase defense, lower speed further)

    hah haha so I guess a garaydos/salamence/arcanine/krookodile core would just get rekt by Milotic, but perhaps its a good gamble, what if i could have some trick room option to deal with that boosted Milotic
  12. VGC 17 Discussion Thread

    doesnt adrenaline orb only work once, so milotic is getting +1 boost max, so multiple intimidate wont change much would it?
  13. VGC 17 Discussion Thread

    OK, I got a new set Tapu lele/Garaydos/Celesteela/A-Mok/Salamence/Krookodile pretty self explanatory lele deals with koko Garaydos/celesteela/A-mok standard Salamence/Krookodile has coverage and earth quake synergy, also double intimidate

    On what kind of a team could Mence work? Because it's my favourite mon and I wanna make it work. Can he be used for coverage. Can I just use him to replace Chomp in that staple core, and used the 6th mon to deal with some of his weakness? Also can Arcanine replace A-Wak as the fire based sweeper?
