  1. Pokémon Porygon-Z

    I disagree re: recover. It's a pretty great response to priority moves which tend to be used heavily in response to a +1 Speed PoryZ. It's kept a number of my sweeps possible where I'd otherwise be whittled down. Honestly my preference regarding Shadow Ball/Recover comes purely down to how...
  2. Pokémon Kommo-o

    He said assuming a WP set, meaning Weakness Policy.
  3. Pokémon Tapu Koko

    So I know it has amazing offensive viability, but has anyone tried using it as a support set? It's particularly nice for Porygon-Z with Thunderbolt Z-Conversion for the Electric Terrain boost. Nature's Madness is amazing at whittling down walls. It doesn't have much bulk to speak of, but if...
  4. Pokémon Porygon-Z

    Agreed on Electric being safer vs. Aegis. I'm not too crazy about giving Aegis a STAB priority move against my sweeper. Also, I've been having some fun with this set supporting my Porygon: Boogaloo (Tapu Koko) @ Light Clay Ability: Electric Surge EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 Spe Timid...
  5. Pokémon Porygon-Z

    I've won a ton of games on the ladder with the electric set. I see where you guys are coming from re: lack of ghost checks, but the prevalence of Aegislash's Shadow Sneak is a problem, and the also common Tapu Koko makes it really easy for Adaptability +1 Tbolt to wreck house. I've been going...
  6. Other 6th Gen Pokemon OU Candidate Speculation Thread

    Focus Sash isn't exactly the most reliable way of countering anything though, even if it does work. Also someone mentioned Heatran as a counter earlier, don't put HP Rock onto it, it gets Ancientpower which has just as high a BP as Hidden Power given its nerf. Gliscor's also a nice counter...
  7. Bug Reports v2.0 (READ OP BEFORE POSTING!!)

    Has Hidden Power Fairy not been implemented yet? I'm unable to put it on my Greninja. Is it HP Normal?
  8. Other The state of entry hazards for gen 6

    Galvantula is still useful as it's resilient to Taunt both through being faster than the other Sticky Web users/being able to hit the Taunt user for a lot of damage should they decide to use it. It is also well equipped to handle an opponent using substitute on the sticky web unlike...
  9. Pokémon Klefki

    While it's not the best way to abuse Klefki by any means, I think it's pretty cool that he gets priority Sub/CM, and priority Rest/Sleep Talk. Klefki Leftovers {Prankster} Bold 252 HP/252 Defense/4 Speed Calm Mind Dazzling Gleam Rest Sleep Talk Not the optimal way to use Klefki, I just want to...
  10. Speed is fun - 'till it kills!

    Excellent warstory, really helped me actually. I had trouble creating a team I could like using after Smogon banned Blaziken, my previous team just didn't do it for me, and I tried several others and it still felt wrong. Reading your warstory showed me how awesome Tailwind can potentially be...
  11. Lilligant

    You're thinking of Teeter Dance, Quiver Dance is the English name for Butterfly Dance, +Sp.Attack/Sp.Def/Speed
  12. Jirachi

    Saw this set in another thread, been working really well. Modest 252 Doom Desire gets a lot of OHKOs. Modest @ Leftovers 252 HP/252 Special Attack/4 whatever (I chose Defense) Doom Desire Wish Protect U-Turn Provides amazing support.
  13. Mew

    Old topic, but I've been having a lot of success with a bulky lead Mew on the major PO servers. Impish @ Leftovers 252 HP/252 Defense/4 Special Defense Fake Out Stealth Rock Will-o-Wisp Dragon Tail Fake Out gets rid of Sturdy/Sash for the leads against which it matters, and also reveals a lot...
  14. Meloetta

    252 Defense on Hasty? Cheer Up may hold potential but Meloetta falls to a MASSIVE 4-moveslot syndrome then.
  15. Trapping in 5th Gen

    I think the designers of the game have made it impossible on purpose. OP, why does your Erufuun have 8 Attack EVs? I like the team, though I don't have much experience with Trap-based teams. I've had no chance to play Gen5, but I have a few plans in mind.
