stadium 2 i think is when little cup was first introduced. it may have been the first though.
Adding to what ete said, check this out: http://www.smogon.com/dp/articles/little_cup_guideI don't understand the ban-list at all. What makes Misdrevous, Yanma, and Tangela warrent a ban from the Little Cup?
After doing up to step 4, the speed was 0.00049019608. My problem, however, is whether I round up to 1, or leave it at 0. (obviously, I'm inclinde to think it is the latter, but I would like someone to conferm it)Choose your EV spread, then take 100 points away from each stat you are investing more than 100 EVs in, and for stats you are investing less than 100 EVs in take away the largest multiple of 10 that you can without dropping into negative numbers. This represents using Vitamins on these stats; yes, it will be expensive.
The next part is complicated by Magikarp/Starly giving one Speed EV as well as the four EVs per battle you get from the correct Power Item, so it may be slightly tricky to follow:
- Divide needed EVs for each non-Speed stat by eight (four without Pokérus)
- Round each up
- Add up the total then multiply by two (unless you lack Pokérus, in which case don't multiply) and take it away from the needed Speed (if the number drops below 0 you must add multiples of 10 until the result is greater than 0, these are Tamato Berries to compensate for gaining too many Speed EVs while training for other stats).
- Divide the remaining needed Speed by ten (five without Pokérus)
- Round Speed up
- Add the Speed number to each of the other stats. This is the number of battles you will need.
Use life orb. The others are useless/gimmicky.I've been running a Croagunk revenge killer set on a sandstorm team, and was wondering what item would be best for it.
Croagunk @ ???
Naughty, 52 HP, 188 Atk, 36 Def, 196 Spd, 28 Sp Atk
I sacrificed one point in Sp Atk for a point in defense and a point in hp.
Some potential items I've looked at include:
Shuca berry (Gligar never ohko's w/EQ before sandstorm damage, 33% chance with SR)
Life Orb (requires a tweak in the EVs to hit 19 HP)
Custap berry (gimmicky, allows me to go first once when my HP drops below 1/3, which is more likely with sandstorm out)
I guess these are my only options really lol. I've used the first two so far, but not once has the Shuca berry been useful, and the Lum hasn't been very helpful either. I kind of want to avoid Life Orb due to the sandstorm damage, but I find that croagunk's power is a tad lacking without it. Custap berry might be just gimmicky enough to score a quick kill on a pesky gligar or dratini :)
lol that's quite the dilemma. more speed/attack from DD vs more damage in Outrage/Flamethrower/DM (yes this dratini will be a mixed sweeper)the difference in the two items is bulk against power, so is ultimately up to your own personal preference. Life Orb is the most common choice because of the firepower it brings to a sweeper who can use priority to revenge weakened opponents off the bat. Oran Berry, however, can be used to give Dratini a better chance at setting up Dragon Dances.
you do speed last because you train on magikarp that give you 2 speed EVs with your attached power item that gives you 8 EVs in any specific stat.what item should my dratini sweeper be hollding, life orb or an oran berry?
and dr00, how many battles would it take to EV these: 28 HP / 244 Atk / 36 SpD / 196 S
and why is it important to EV speed last?
oh oky, thnx. im going to use elekid because i have a staryu lead.Pikanube, as a lead, Voltorb is better, because it can Taunt and explode.
As a mid-game setter, Elekid is better, because it has better coverage and offensive stats.
EDIT: Thanks, Dubulous. Didn't notice that.
