  1. SV OU Rate My Battle Stadium Singles (Series 1) Team

    Yes tera bullet will do the same as quick attack. It's only more damage when you don't tera scizor. It is quite situational I know (its similar to the knock off situation, rarely comes up). Sometimes you might not want to lose your bug type so you can take a ground or fighting attack. You...
  2. SV OU Rate My Battle Stadium Singles (Series 1) Team

    Some move choices for consideration: Scizor - Acrobatics -> Quick Attack. 99% of the time you are clicking Bullet Punch or U-Turn only. The other two moves are generally filler. Quick Attack gives you a technician boosted attack to revenge kill a mon that resists steel (Fire or Water mons...
  3. Unpopular opinions

    Yeah fair point! No switch is a bummer for those who want more of a challenge or to stick with 6 mons in a run. I defo like both of them. I don't really like to grind random encounters to level up that many pokemon and would probably stick with 6 if there was no exp share.
  4. Unpopular opinions

    I like exp share. It allows you to rotate your team with different pokemon. Traditionally I would never change my first 6 pokemon. But in shield, I rotated about 15 pokemon in my team. It gave the opportunity to try all the new pokemon in the game!
  5. Research Does anyone in the world play any Pokemon game older than Pokemon sword and shield?

    I started playing Crystal a few months ago on my 3DS. I got through a couple of gyms and then my 3DS stopped charging and that was the end of that :psysad::psysad::psysad::psysad:
  6. Mechanics In Pokemon Legends: Arceus You'd Like To See In Future Titles

    I didn't realise it had battle effects in DP (my bad!), just thought it was is the overworld. Interesting they brought it back for Legends, but I guess there is no misty terrain so makes sense.
  7. Dexit discussion thread

    I am actually OK for a Dexit sacrifice for a better gameplay experience. (we haven't got this yet though) I can understand that including all pokemon into a game becomes challenging when you are constantly adding more and more to the game and they were going to hit a tipping point eventually...
  8. Mechanics In Pokemon Legends: Arceus You'd Like To See In Future Titles

    I wouldn't want to see too much change in battle mechanics, except maybe replacing freeze with frost bite. The problem is they might do an all or nothing with these new mechanics if they were to bring them in, and I don't like the idea of having increased evasion of fog in the game. [EDIT: turns...
  9. Pokemon Scarlet & Violet - 18th Nov 2022! **OFFICIAL INFO ONLY**

    I am OK with little breathing room between games (especially BDSP and Legends), as long it doesn't effect the end product of the gen 9 game. Legends, while a really good game, has little to no replayability factor. (trying to fill my dex is already killing my soul and making me bored of the...
  10. SPOILERS! Legends: Arceus Playthrough Discussion

    I find this game to be amazing. It is so refreshing to play something different that is still Pokemon. It reminds me of how I loved Sun Moon because it replaced the usual gym challenge with something different. The game isn't perfect by all means, but gives me hope for the future of the...
  11. Pokemon BDSP Playthrough Discussion

    I think the nostalgia factor play a big part in whether you love a remake or not. I have been playing since Gen 1 and I loved the LGPE games because it took me back to playing Pokemon Blue on my game boy colour. Seeing Kanto bought to life on the switch with improved graphics was very exciting...

    Hi. Just looking to trade my Rhydon back and forth to evolve it. Please pm me if you're happy to help! Thanks. Edit: Trade done
  13. Battle Stadium Plan to Resume S11

    P2 is scary. I had other mons to check it (mainly tried to trick it with Fini so it couldn't recover). I think you have to decide what you want to check more Swampert or P2/ferro when deciding your coverage move. You can also drop trick room if you want both moves. That has consequences of...
  14. Battle Stadium Plan to Resume S11

    Quag was my idea pre s10 for a counter. Now every Zacian team runs Rillaboom in s10 to counter it. So it ended up being a momentum drain and I dropped it in my own team. I also focused my team more on hyper offence rather than semi stall. With Mim, Babiri was for Mold Break Drill (which used to...
  15. Battle Stadium Plan to Resume S11

    For Caly-S. You don't need a dark mon for a Caly-I team IMO. Caly-I works best playing offensively. You generally need to win quickly under trick room (which is possible with its ability). You just need to set up Caly-I for a sweep and not let Caly-S sweep. S10 trend was sashed Caly-S, so...
  16. Battle Stadium Plan to Resume S11

    I think the core of your team looks great. Caly / Lieki / Fairy / Fire is a great core for any Caly team. I think you want to run High Horsepower on Caly-I for Pex and Zacian. You don't need Heavy for minimise since Max Moves now ignore evasion. (Also +1 Max Quake KOs max defence Pex). I think...
  17. Battle Stadium Doing Awful

    I am running Whirlpool / Natures / Taunt / Moonblast with lefties for passive recovery. You can run protect in the last spot, but then you don't have any 100% accurate moves. (Fini is my fairy mon for Darks so I need Moonblast) I haven't run specs Lieki so not sure if you lose damage. Its...
  18. Battle Stadium Doing Awful

    Yeah Pex is a pain. I am running trapping Fini next season to bait it in and then whirlpool/taunt trap it to death. My guess is the meta will be fatter without dynamax so trapping Fini will be decent. Dual screens Lieki will be good for Caly-I too. In regards to Lum vs Life Orb, I have be...
  19. Singles 3v3 Singles (BSS) Discussion

    Judging by your team in your rate my team. I think you really need an electric mon then. It will pressure Milotic and other common bulky waters/steela. A volt switcher can give you a pivot into something else that checks a switch in as well. Drifblim isn't a reliable counter to Zacian. Most run...
  20. Battle Stadium Doing Awful

    You could run weakness policy if you like. There is no more dynamax to double your HP to guarantee you survive multiple super effective hits though. I am testing both lum and LO atm, can't tell you which is better. My team is a little weak to sleep atm so considering Lum so I am not endlessly...
