    Battle Tree Discussion and Records

    I updated my doubles team from earlier after realizing that I get swept by Scarf fire types. Here's the new team: Tapu Koko @ Life Orb Ability: Electric Surge Level: 50 EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe Naive Nature - Dazzling Gleam - Discharge - Thunderbolt - Grass Knot...

    Battle Maison Discussion & Records

    Hello. I'm looking for a few ideas and some input on completing my Doubles team. I am extremely confident in my opening pair, and less so on their support. I've had a few streaks end in the 70/80 range, with my record at 91. Here is the core: Greninja @ King's Rock Ability: Protean Nature...

    Creative Sets in Smogon Doubles (Updated for ORAS @ Post #83)

    I suppose I'll submit my favorite set, one that I am actually proud of. Goodra @ Chesto Berry Ability: Sap Sipper EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd Calm Nature - Acid Armor - Rest - Infestation - Muddy Water/coverage attacking move This came to be after some trial and error once Acid Armor was...

    Bug Reports v2.0 (READ OP BEFORE POSTING!!)

    Powder moves (Spore, Sleep Powder, Rage Powder) do not affect grass types And I just had a game where my Azelf used explosion and for some reason it hit my own Trevenant: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/smogondoubles-74266416 It happens turn 9

    Is Entei's HA Flash Fire confirmed? If so how does it receive it in-game?

    Offense is the Best Defense (Charizard X orientated team!)

    I have a few suggestions for your Rotom. The first would be the item. You mentioned that Grass attacks can be annoying, but they are fairly uncommon, basically only coming from Venusaur and Amoongus, which the rest of your team should be able to dismantle. I think your instinct to put Sitrus on...

    Bug Reports v2.0 (READ OP BEFORE POSTING!!)

    Think I may have found a bug with Boomburst. A scrappy Exploud used Boomburst and it did not affect the ally Aegislash. The Aegislash was not protecting/King's Shielding and Exploud was definitely Scrappy because it hit the opposing Sableye. It happens at turn 6...

    VGC 2014 Combinations Thread

    admiral_mason that is indeed a very threatening opening, as I have faced some similar to that. I am wondering from your perspective, what opens/teams give you problems? I usually start Sableye/Rotom-W or Sableye/Bisharp, so Safeguard usually hurts me quite a bit.

    Topic of the Week #12 - Shielding Moves

    I have been testing the weight limit of Sky Drop. I used my Aerodactyl (weight 130.1 lbs) and Hawlucha (weight 47.4 lbs) and lifted things up to and including Lunatone (370 lbs) with each of them. I was not able to lift a Metang (weight 446.4 lbs). I first thought that there was a ratio'd...

    VGC 2014 Combinations Thread

    I don't believe Pain Split is VGC 2014 legal since it was a BW2 tutor move for Rotom. And as far as HP Ice goes, I wouldn't be worried about Gliscor in VGC since he really doesn't bring much to the table, and Hydro Pump takes care of him well enough. You are better off going for Protect/Light...

    Talonflame Discussion

    I have been running Talonflame @ Sharp Beak Ability: Gale Wings EVs: 68 HP / 252 Atk / 188 Spd Adamant Nature - Protect - Will-O-Wisp - Flare Blitz - Brave Bird My gameplan never tends to focus around Talonflame, I usually keep in around to clean up certain threats and annoying grass types. I...

    [VGC] My Intimidating VGC Team

    I have never made a VGC team before a month or so ago, but was always interested in doubles. I found the VGC 4v4 format to be entertaining, with a few exceptions (minimize users are the devil). Having started out using just a few of my favorites, then slowly evolving it to perform well...

    Assault Vest and Doubles

    I just thought of this, but I think it will definitely work. I am going to try Assault Vest on Lapras. A set of Scald, Ice Beam, Freeze Dry, and Thunderbolt would be great for my team. I am currently running Scrafty and Mega Manectric on my team so I get plenty of intimidates off, making...

    I was trying to come up with Protean + Skill swap combos, and I thought I won life when I thought of this. Skill Swap with a Telepathy Noivern. The idea was to give him Choice Specs/Life Orb and boomburst everything, while Kecleon is safe with Telepathy. I had major problems getting this...

    Pre-bank Doubles Viability Rankings (outdated)

    I would like to nominate one of my absolute favorite Pokemon, Mienshao It is quickly becoming my new favorite lead, and it has so many options to choose from. His fantastic attack and speed allow him to threaten tons of pokes, and has great support options in Fake Out, Feint, Reflect, Wide and...

    Does Chandelure have to wait until Pokebank to get Heat Wave? I see it is an egg move but I can't find a parent to chain breed it

    Battle Maison Discussion & Records

    So going through some double battles, I faced a trainer who led with Darmanitan and Floatzel. The Floatzel used Aqua tail and Darmanitan used WoW, on Floatzel.... It did not have water veil, but even if it did there would be absolutely 0 point in doing that. Love that the Battle Maison has a...

    I am looking at the description for Quick Guard on Serebii. It says it will not block Prankster moves, but will it stop Talonflame's priority from Gale Wings?
