  1. DP Tier Discussion Thread - BL and UU

    Yeah, I can't see Alakazam working in the "new" UU (I agree, the names would likely need to be changed). He is powerful enough to work in OU/BL no problem, but we'll see. And yes, I don't expect the new UU tier to grow by a huge number. True, with the addition of (some) the BL Pokes and NFEs...
  2. Writing efficiency

    Writing is certainly something that takes a lot of practice to get down, but the reward is always a very nice bonus at the end. For me, it comes pretty naturally now (It should. I've been writing fics for long enough. XD). What I do is start with either an outline, or just a list of the plot...
  3. DP Tier Discussion Thread - BL and UU

    Yes, that sums up the debate quite nicely. My impression has been, and correct me if I'm wrong, is that the goal is to have the largest number of Pokemon in UU. NFE's will surely swell UU by a considerable number, and if BL's start getting put into UU it will make it larger still.
  4. DP Tier Discussion Thread - BL and UU

    This is getting far too much based on guesswork (as nothing is written in stone yet) but all I said was IF some NFE's got into BL/OU, then likely BL and OU would need to be retested. Maybe, maybe not, though. We'll see. And yes, I agree. And if Shoddy does UU usage, it would make everything...
  5. DP Tier Discussion Thread - BL and UU

    Well...that gets into the situation that if NFE (such as Chansey, Magneton etc.) start getting moved up into OU/BL, then instead of just retesting ALL of the UU and maybe NU Pokes, then all of the OU and BL Pokes would also have to be retested. The thing is, testing all of the UU Pokes would...
  6. OU: Triple Earthquake Immunity

    Yeah. I just got tired of all the n00b teams over there, so... Very good, but perhaps not so many changes? This is close to a new team, here. XD However, I see no problems with it, except for using HP Fighting over Toxic for T-Tar. Of course, using Cress as a T-Tar counter is pretty gutsy in...
  7. OU: Triple Earthquake Immunity

    Well, you have a good point, but I'd still go with Focus Blast over Explosion or Focus Punch. If Focus Blast misses, you're right that it's pretty much end game for Gengar. Hypnosis isn't necessarily that bad, however. Mostly depends on what you are trying to put to sleep. If it does worry...
  8. DP Togekiss edit

    Looks good to me, but you might want to either make Tri Attack an option over Flamethrower. The extra power compared to Air Slash (which isn't all that much, but the chance of inflicting some kind of status seems too good to pass up. With the lack of Flamethrower to hit the Steels (Skarmory...
  9. OU: Triple Earthquake Immunity

    Looks good, but switch Gengar to Modest. Timid just makes his speed excessive, and the Sp. Atk boost give by Modest will help him. Nice format, BTW.
  10. DP Tier Discussion Thread - BL and UU

    My thoughts in bold. Well, not 100% sure about the list, but certainly a very good start. I play a lot of UU, and have lately been testing a few odd NFE's (Grovyle at the moment). Snover and Hippopotas aside, I support testing NFE's for UU (although Magneton could cause some problems for the...
