Yeah, avatar is Perrin from Wheel of Time.
Nice to see some familiar faces and new ones, of course!
I stole someone's team and playing it on Showdown at random ass times BUT it is good to be back playing a bit.
Ranbat is still surprisingly fun.
Didn't find a general welcome back thread, so thought I'd create one.
Hello Smogon, it has been awhile since I have been active here. Been like 12 years since I have joined and time flies. Nostalgia has got the best of me and decided to play competitive Pokemon again and ladder on Showdown. I...
I have been using this set to some success. Suicune does the same job and can have Leftovers but thought I would share.
name: Rest Talk
move 1: Rest
move 2: Sleep Talk
move 3: Scald / Water Pulse / Dark Pulse
move 4: Roar / Rapid Spin

Ive been on the receiving end of that Sigilyph, pretty cool set. The only thing I dont like is the spread on Rotom-W, I would focus more on its defensive stats. Very good team KG, nice to see you around.
this is a basic Sand Team, it has a nice balance of stall and offense. I've been trying many other teams but this strategy has been proving to winning games. I started off with an old pair, Blissey and Skarmory. Second combo is Celebi and Tyranitar. Then I just added pokemon "meshed" well with...
