Always be polite. I will never trade with someone who is rude to anyone. It's fine to be critical, even instructive, but there's no need to be rude to anyone even if you hate them.

No hacks please. If you suspect something is hacked, have it checked by one of the kind people on Smogon first before you wave it in someones face. Clones for legends/events/
shinnies are fine, but otherwise you should have no reason to be cloning flawless pokemon (Low Ratio Females, eh?).
We all know there are many kind people here on Smogon, giving away free
shinnies and whatnot. However, I'm only interested in what you have put your hard work into, not what you can beg request off others.
If you're on the Blacklist, sorry I cannot trade with you. Best of wishes somewhere else.

Everything here
can be redistributed, unless stated otherwise.
Make sure to list everything you can think of when making an offer. I'm not
interested in trading if you haven't given me any information.

Wants
Gen 5 Event HA Adamant/Jolly Rock Climb Tauros (if in non-pokeball, all the better!) (Let's be honest, if you have this, I'll
literally give you everything)
People willing to do breeding projects for me. I'm lazy, so if you want something I'm usually more than willing to let you do a BR for me.

Wacky or weird projects to breed. I have no want or need to breed Pokemon everyone uses, but off-meta projects are fun. If its interesting enough, I'll do it. Especially looking for sets for Herdier, Pidgeotto, Luxio, and Nidorina. If you suggest a set and I accept, I'll give you the finished product for free.

Thanks

Honestly, I don't like Trophy Cases. It kind of objectifies pokemon. However, I do want to share the best friends I've had over the years, and as such, they will be displayed here (among other fun stuff). Unless you sell me your arm, and a leg, and your firstborn child, I probably won't trade these guys (unless otherwise stated), so unless you have something I need, don't ask.
All pokes here are not tradable unless otherwise stated.
Note, Gold text means that that stat was Hyper Trained from a non-30 IV stat. Pink text means that that stat was Hyper Trained from a 30 IV stat.

{4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd}


I love Hawlucha. I've been playing Pokemon since Gen 4, and I still love Hawlucha over all the rest! He has excellent offensive typing, a great move set, one of the best abilities in the game, he's built to be fast and strong, and he looks great! What's not to love? He can brawl with the best of them and come out on top, and he's ready to fight in a pinch. But what matter most about a Pokemon, is not their strength, or how they look, it's whether or not they have your back, and are willing to be your friend. I can safely say with 100% certainty, Hawlucha will always have my back, as I will have his.

{252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spd}


Muhahaha! Dancing Dino == OP! I used this Rhydon in the Kanto Classic, and we did pretty dang good. Built for a full offensive set, and once he gets his set ups in, he's just OP, not just in the Kanto Classic. In honor of how much he's done for me as a friend and an ally, I made him into a ribbon project.

This was my first Soft Reset legend! Came out pretty well! Except no HP Ice :(
But, at least the IV's are flawless! Use this guy for a fast support. I actually have a First Edition Pokemon card of Raikou somewhere, gotta love the old art design!

Most people probably don't know who rufus is/was. She hasn't been on Smogon in quite some time, but when she was, she was active in the WiFi section. In large part thanks to her and her generosity, I ended up really getting into competitive Pokemon. So to honor her, I turned one of her giveaway Pokemon into a Ribbon Project, even if this Ampharos is a bit outdated. This Pokemon is Free-Redis only (can only be redistributed for free).

Special Thanks to ooh_shiny for providing.
Basically the same deal as above. Obtained from ooh_shiny, after she hatched it for rufus through TSV method. This Pokemon is Fully-Redis.

Ev'd: Psychic, Hypnosis, Wish, Reflect
{236 HP / 156 Def / 116 SpD}

I realized that I kept having people help me with projects, but that I also had nothing to give back but spitbacks. Thus, Gratitude was born (well, I mean give or take a few days). Gratitude chimes loudly and somehow clones itself into your PC if you help Blizzard with a project without asking for anything in return (don't ask, I blame The Domed One). If you've helped me in the past, you can request Gratitude to clone herself into your PC, otherwise, don't bother asking, she comes to you, not the other way around. You can also help Gratitude clone herself into other people's PC's, if they help you as well (IE, conditional redistribution rights. You can redistribute her only if you do so as a gift to those who help you.)!

Timid | Solar Power | Standard Breeding
IVs: 31 | 0 | 30 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Ice)
Ev'd: Solar Beam, Flamethrower, Hidden Power, Roost
{4 Def / 252 SpAtk / 252 Spd}

Okay, okay, I know I usually don't go around breeding super ubers like the famous Charizard, but with the new access to Fast Ball I just had to! He looks fantastic. Drought + Solar Beam makes for a terrifying combo that few Pokemon can beat, thus making him a one of the best beaters around. That being said, with the addition of Accelrock this little dragon faces an uphill battle, even more so with the continuing presence of Stealth Rock. I've used Charizard on numerous occasions, both in direct play throughs and on competitive teams, and he never fails excite a battle into overdrive.


(#015 - Beedrill )

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Jolly | Sniper | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 31 | 31 | 0 | 31 | 31 (HP Electric)
Ev'd: Poison Jab, X-Scissor, Drill Run, Knock Off
{252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd}

I LOVE BEEDRILL. There, I said it. Nothing you can do to change my mind. People complain, "Oh stupid Game Freak, they made another OP Mega, boo." No, Beedrill is a Mega done right. They had a Gen 1 Pokemon that saw little use beacuse of its power-creep'd stats, and they made it into an absolute monster, though not utterly OP. That's Megas done right I say. In any case, it has a fantastic design that just oozes the scheme of Mega Evolution, and seems like a natural progression to what Beedrill would become. In any case, with the ability activation order switch with Megas that occured with Gen 7, Beedrill became even stronger since it didn't need to run Protect any longer. Needless to say, I use Beedrill often and always have fun squishing all the scrubs.


(#025 - Pikachu
)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Hasty | Lightning Rod | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 30 | 30 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Ice)
Ev'd: Volt Tackle, Thunderbolt, Hidden Power, Grass Knot
{4 Atk / 252 SpAtk / 252 Spd}

Yeah, going with the classics hard. Pikachu is such an icon in pop-culture, it's hard not to see him as the face of the franchise. I'll agree that he's not bad, but I just feel that maybe they should honor him in some way other than releasing him in some variant form that can't be transferred. It's just more annoying than anything worth my time, even if they are pretty cool. I really like Volt Tackle for that reason, but eck, trying to breed for nature variants, let alone looking for a flawless IV's and Hidden Power is just too much. That's why I haven't bred one before now. But, through the magic that is shiny printing, now I've got one.


(#026 - A-Raichu
)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Modest | Surge Surfer | SSR Method
IVs: 31
| 0 | 30 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Ice)
Ev'd: Focus Blast, Thunderbolt, Psychic. Hidden Power
{252 SpAtk / 4 SpD / 252 Spd}

I built this A-Raichu for mono-type battles. I used A-Raichu in Alola for my first play through, and to be frank, it kind of underwhelmed me (not unlike most of the Alolan variants). Typing is mediocre, ability is situational, moves are pretty bad, etc. My Fearow is a better Pokemon, and I'm still using him today for SRing Legends! Maybe it's just my disgust with Gen 7 in general, but I can't really get to like A-Raichu. Still, A-Raichu hits like a truck, especially given how weak SpD is in the general meta.


(#059 - Arcanine "Mr. PB"
)


OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Wela Volcano Park (Alola)
Calm | Intimidate | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 0 | 31 | 30 | 31 | 31 (HP Grass)
Ev'd: Heat Wave, Snarl, Will-O-Wisp, Morning Sun
{244 HP / 188 Def / 76 SpD}

I've used Arcanine on many occasions and through several playthroughs, and I've enjoyed using him in the past. But lately I just don't like using Arcanine. There's nothing really unique about him at this point, and there are now plenty of fantastic fire types that are just more fun to use. Dont get me wrong, Arcanine is still pretty good, but I just feel the spark is gone. In any case, this bulky SpAtk Arcanine set is fairly unique since I almost always run Arcanine as a physical attacker, so I decided to do it. Works well enough, and it's pretty funny (and effective) when people get confused when you hit them with a Heat Wave over a Flare Blitz. Named 'Mr. PB' after Mr. Peanutbutter from Bojack Horseman.


(#065 - Alakazam
)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Timid | Magic Guard | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 0 | 31 | 30 | 31 | 30 (HP Fire)
Ev'd: Focus Blast, Psychic, Shadow Ball, Calm Mind
{4 Def / 252 SpAtk / 252 SpAtk}

Alakazam is a pretty classic powerhouse. Even though he's fallen from his OP period during Gen 1 what with the combined special stat and all, he's still a relevant powerhouse. I haven't actually used Alakazam in anything except random Showdown battles since Gen 4 where my friend kicked my behind with his Alakazam which he eventually cloned for me, but who knows? Maybe I'll get around to using him again.


(#068 - Machamp "1KPunchMan"
)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Adamant | No Guard | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 31 | 31 | 10 | 31 | 31 (HP Electric)
Ev'd: Dynamic Punch, Ice Punch, Knock Off, Wide Guard
{252 HP / 188 Atk / 68 Def}

"1KPunch Man"! Haha!... you don't get it? Like,... he can punch 1 thousand times in 2 seconds... and like One Punch Man... no? Just me? ;-; forever alone. Machamp is one of the few Gen 1 Pokemon that continues to carve out a niche for itself, in much part thanks to Dynamic Punch and No Guard, much like how Golurk continues to thrive with that same combo. However, he faces alot of competition these days. The Talonflame meta made him pretty much a slot waste, and the addition of fairies (especially now the Tapus) leaves him with more weakness than strengths. Still, Machamp has fantastic damage, and he can be a surprising asset if you use him sparingly.


(#082 - Magneton Ø)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Timid | Analytic | Standard Breeding
IVs: 31 | 0 | 30 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Ice)
Ev'd: Thunderbolt, Flash Cannon, Volt Switch, Hidden Power
{252 SpAtk / 4 SpD / 252 Spd}

It's a Gen 1 Classic, Magneton! The first time I saw Magneton was in the original manga, when Red got caught on the S.S. Anne. Magneton might have lost a lot of its thunder since Gen 1, but it still carves out a niche as a faster, weaker version of Magnezone. Thanks to Gen 7, I don't have to RNG abuse for a matching ball one anymore, so I had time to breed this little metal gem.


(#091 - Cloyster
)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Jolly | Skill Link | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 31 | 31 | 10 | 31 | 31 (HP Electric)
Ev'd: Icicle Spear, Rapid Spin, Toxic Spikes, Shell Smash
{252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd}

Cloyster, the Gen 1 powerhouse that has somehow been able to remain relevant throughout the years, is such a great Shell Smash user. Okay, his typing leaves him open to a lot of common weaknesses, but with such great versatility and viability, it's not hard to see why he's always been a fan favorite. I haven't used a Cloyster competitively since X&Y, but I'm sure he'll be a ready to go when I need him next.


(#099 - Kingler
)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Adamant | Hyper Cutter | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 31 | 31 | 10 | 31 | 31 (HP Electric)
Ev'd: Crabhammer, Knock Off, Swords Dance, Agility
{252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd}

Kingler has seen some rough years. He no longer has the speed to keep up with much of his Gen 1 brethren, and only a niche sweeper role (which I usually use Rhydon for, beacuse of his bulk). However, Kingler still has a lot of power and when he hits, he hits hard. I do think Kingler would be a fantastic option for a new regional variant however, decrease his Def and buff his Speed, and he could become an excellent sweeper in the lower tiers.


(#103 - Exeggutor-A )

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Quiet | Frisk | Standard Breeding
IVs: 31 | 1 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 0 (HP Ice)
Ev'd: Draco Meteor, Flamethrower, Giga Drain, Trick Room
{248 HP / 252 SpAtk / 8 SpD}

Okay, someone really needs to fix the screen size of this Pokemon. Maybe have his head bend down a bit? Otherwise he's just always somewhat off-screen. I don't really have any fond memories of normal, Kanto Exeggutor, and I really struggle with its design. But Alolan Exeggutor really does something for me, I don't know. Sadly, it retains that 4x Weakness moving from the rare Bug type to the common Ice type, so that does him no favors. Still, that speed debuff works well in his favor, allowing him to do fairly well on a Trick Room team. Good solid beater with that monstrous Special Attack.


(#121 - Starmie Ø)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Timid | Analytic | Standard Breeding
IVs: 31 | 0 | 31 | 30 | 31 | 30 (HP Fire)
Ev'd: Hydro Pump, Psychic, Ice Beam, Recover
{252 SpAtk / 4 Spd / 252 Spd}

Starmie doesn't get alot of love these days. Many other pokes can do its role better than it can, and take a hit. However, Starmie has something these other noobs don't have. Guts. Not the ability, but the wherewithal to keep hitting back no matter how much you defend. There's been alot of Starmies in-game in S&M, and I decided to breed one. Bring one on your team, and you'll really surprise your opponents.


(#124 - Jynx
)


OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Mount Lanakila (Alola)
Timid | Dry Skin | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 0 | 31 | 30 | 31 | 30 (HP Fire)
Ev'd: Ice Beam, Psyshock, Nasty Plot, Lovely Kiss
{252 SpAtk / 4 SpD / 252 Spd}

Damn it Jynx! Stop being so bloody OP! In my playthrough of Pokemon LeafGreen (I did so in order to get some special Move Tutor Pokemon), I had a gap in my team where I needed to counter Fighting and Dragon Pokemon beyond brute force. Thus, I picked up the behemoth Jynx to fill that roll. Little did I know how OP Jynx is. Seriously. I almost completely solo'd the E4 with Jynx. Alas, that left all my other Pokemon underleveled, while my Jynx is swole as a Machamp. Whelp I'm going to be grinding for the next few weeks, thanks Jynx.


(#128 - Tauros
)


OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Poni Plains (Alola)
Jolly | Intimidate | SSR Method

31 | 31 | 31 | 8 | 31 | 31 (HP Electric)
Ev'd: Earthquake, Return, Zen Headbutt, Rock Slide
{252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd}

Tauros is a fun, if straightforward Pokemon to use. Slap on a Choice Band, and he's just going to wreck face, especially beacuse of that nice coverage. Not only that, but he's just got that solid Gen 1 charm. I haven't actually used a Tauros in any fighting scenario since Gen 4, but who knows, since Tauros is available in the Gen 7 Pokedex, maybe he will get some play. Now if only Game Freak could re-release HA Rock Climb Tauros... that would be great :P


(#130 - Gyarados
)


OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Melemele Sea (Alola)

31 | 31 | 31 | 15 | 31 | 31 (HP Dark)
Ev'd: Waterfall, Crunch, Ice Fang, Dragon Dance
{252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd}

Everyone remembers the shiny Gyarados from Johto, and I can't be the only person who loved using it on their team during their playthrough. Gyarados is a fantastic Pokemon, with great coverage and potential to sweep thanks to the ever powerful Dragon Dance. However, I haven't used one competitively since. Perhaps it's time to pick up the old girl again and let her wrath reign supreme...

Ev'd: Hidden Power, Charge Beam, Cotton Guard, Rest
{204 HP / 20 Def / 56 SpAtk / 228 Spd}

OMFG SO CUTE AND FLUFFY!!!!! Flaaffy is just designed to be squeezed, and I mean, come on, how could you even resist? Of course, again as a middle evolution, Flaaffy gets overlooked when looking for potential but don't worry, this little bugger is a monster once she sets up. Charge Beam increases her Special Attack potentially, Hidden Power Ice deals with threats, Cotton Guard makes her absolutely tanky, and Rest heals back any damage. I saw this set somewhere, and I just had to have it! Furthermore, she's just fun to battle with, not too OP but not just trash either. The little cutie is niche, but don't count her out in a battle.


(#182 - Bellossom )

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)

Ev'd: Moonblast, Giga Drain, Quiver Dance, Sleep Powder
{252 SpAtk / 4 SpD / 252 Spd}

I used to only see Bellossom as sun support. Run Chlorophyll with Sunny Day, some powders, and good stuff. Then Gen 7 rolled around, and this little bae got Quiver Dance! One of the best sweeper moves in the game for one of the worst somewhat competitive Pokemon! Right up my alley. I've used her with some success on Showdown, but not so much on Battle Spot yet. But I'm going to keep trying!

Ev'd: Earthquake, Scald, Toxic, Recover
{252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD}

Quagsire, oh Quagsire, how derpy you are. Why are you more oblivious than Slowbro in tar? :P. In Gen 4, when I first met Wooper in the swamps, I couldn't imagine anyone would actually want to use one of these. Paired with the slow crawl of the swamp and their ubiquity, I really grew to despise them, and all I could see them for was their plainness. It's like they don't have any personality. However, once you get to know them, that dull, straight smile is what gives Quagsire their charm. I used Quagsire as my toxic stall in my Gen 6 OR team, and with Unaware, he works wonders. Just don't stay in for a nasty Grass Knot from a Greninja.


(#202 - Wobbuffet "Okiagari" )

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)

| 0 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Dragon)
Ev'd: Mirror Coat, Counter, Encore, Destiny Bond
{204 HP / 52 Def / 252 SpD}

This is a more traditional Wobbuffet set, designed to stall out and provide support to other teammates. While passive, Wobbuffet still plays a major roll in supporting teammates and can act as a fantastic beater if you can succeed in outplaying your opponent. Personally however, I'm an idiot and I can never get Wobbuffet to maximize her potential since I have an aggressive play style. She's named after the first part of Wobbuffet's inspiration, the "Okiagari-Koboshi" doll.


(#202 - Wobbuffet "Koboshi" )

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)

| 0 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Dragon)
Ev'd: Mirror Coat, Counter, Encore, Charm
{124 Def / 132 SpD / 252 Spd}

This Wobbuffet is a more aggressive Pokemon, designed to really maximize its Encore trolling potential. It's IV's allow it to out-speed neutral base 70 Pokemon, which means you can really play havoc with slower walls Wobbuffet might face. It's not a popular set, and I only really built him up beacuse I bred him on accident and it was too good an opportunity to pass up. He's named after the second part of Wobbuffet's inspiration, the "Okiagari-Koboshi" doll.

Ev'd: Earthquake, Heavy Slam, Stealth Rock, Roar
{252 HP / 56 Def / 200 SpD}

I used to think Steelix was epic in my younger ages, when I played through the Gen 4 games. I mean, come on, a giant steel worm? Has to be pretty good. I spent a good couple of weeks catching these guys on Victory Road for fun. When Gen 6 came around and I was filling out my dex for the first time, I traded a bunch of Gen 4 Steelix to get the mons I needed. So.. if you see a Gen 4 Steelix floating around... there's a possible chance it might be one of mine... XD. While Steelix is alright, and pretty dang bulky, it really doesn't have the offensive threats or longevity the current meta wants. I built this one as a bulky mega rocks setter, but you could retrool this to be more bulky offensive.

This is where Steelix really shines for offensive power. Spam the Curses, try not to die, then eat up faster mons with Gryo Ball. Of course, you could always pull off Gyro Ball and go with Heavy Slam for Trick Room builds, but that's your prerogative. I do wonder if Shiny Steelix is actually made out of gold... might explain where nuggets come from...

I probably wouldn't have a battle-ready Granbull if it wasn't for my bovine giveaway. Granbull is just kind of forgettable, he's strong, but just not anything to write home about. Furthermore, for some reason he has a female weighted gender-ratio, which is pretty un-explainable. Best answer I could find was that Granbull "looks feminine" -_-. His new fairy typing helped I supposed, but I don't really see Granbull being a fairy type, it seems just kind of forced.

Miltank is a bit weird. I don't like using Miltank, but I understand how powerful it is with that bulk and Milk Drink spam. However... those flapping teats... *shudder*. I'm running Thunder Wave on this one for the Milk Drink spam, but Toxic works as well. I'm also running a Careful nature and a SpD spread beacuse Thick Fat works against Fire and Ice types, who are usually special attackers.

I don't really like Blaziken in his normal form. It's just a bit, well, unwieldy and spindly. He doesn't look like he's going to fight. I much rather prefer his Mega Form, that is a real fighter in view. But, apparently Hidden Power Ice/Mixed Blaziken is popular now, so I kind of only bred him for that reason. But I can see why he's popular, Speed Boost+Swords Dance is just too powerful a combo. Heck, he can even Baton Pass into something else if need be.

R.I.P. M-Sableye Gen 6-Gen 7, you will be missed. With the change in action priority in Gen 7 being a huge boon to some Megas like my fav Beedrill, it also resulted in a huge dip in viability for Pokemon like Sableye, who wanted to use their normal ability for as long as possible. At least his Mega Ability is still fantastic if situational. Now, Sableye isn't bad, but it can't pull off sweeps like it used to. Full utility set on this one, since it's the only set I've had luck with on him this gen.

I know, I know, this Wailord is flawed (doesn't have 0 IV's in Atk). But since I gave it away, I decided I might as well just include it in my Battle Readies. I'll probably re-breed her once I hit a flawless shiny SpAtk spread in the future. You know, Waillord is mostly air (it's the largest Pokemon, not the heaviest), beacuse it draws inspiration from blimps. So instead of Latio/as and Charizard as our soaring/flying Pokemon, can we have Wailord fly us around? :3 That would be epic, and tons of fun given that the soaring mechanic was one of the things that made ORAS great for me.

I first saw a Cacturne in my Diamond playthrough. I was in the postgame, and was in the desert area above the Resort Area. Perhaps not the most interesting Pokemon to find on that route, but I had no idea it existed. Furthermore, I had no idea what typing it was. So I just assumed my Alakazam would have no issue defeating it. Yes, I kept trying to Psychic a Cacturne, I'm just that brilliant. Needless to say, Alakazam didn't make it. Competitively however, I really haven't had a chance to use a Cacturne, but a mixed set is always really fun. Keeps your opponent guessing, just like that first Cacturne confused me. Running HP Psychic on it even though it's niche. Mostly there to hit Fighting and Poison types harder, especially Toxicroak who could come in and set up on Cacturne easily, as it likes to do.

There's only one great earthquake detector in the world, and that's Whiscash! Whiscash is based of the Namazu (which is why mine has its nickname as such), a mythical Japanese catfish that lived in the mud around Japan and caused earthquakes. In earthquake warning systems in Japan, they'll often use a catfish to signal seismic danger! Pretty nifty. However, you don't want your opponent to know you're going to be hitting hard with a boosted EQ from Whiscash! I've found Whiscash to be an excellent end game sweeper, simply beacuse it hits most of its tier with at least neutral hits, and it gets access to the go-to sweeper move, Dragon Dance, but I like to set up with entry hazards first, just in case.

Okay, I know I should have put Crawdaunt in a Lure Ball to really get that matching color scheme. Sue me. Maybe if I get time for another set in the future. Still, he's a fantastically functional Pokemon that's highly underrated. Not only does he get access to Dragon Dance, the second best stat boosting move in the game for sweeps (under only the legendary Speed Boost + Swords Dance combo), but his typing allows him to hit pretty much the entire Metagame for at least neutral damage. The only reason I don't use him more is beacuse my bro Hawlucha fills his roll and I love him to pieces soooo....

Ooooo Baby, Huntail is REALLY underappreciated. With access to Shell Smash, it can set up for a sweep fairly easily, and with Sucker Punch, it can hit back hard just when you thought you had it done for. However, it's a bit slow sadly, but just beacuse something is slow, doesn't mean it can't sweep. Though, I still can't figure out what shell it's smashing for Shell Smash, is it the head fin? So weird...

Gorebyss is one of those pokemon you forget easily. It's not as great as its duplicate, Huntail, and it has a hard time setting that Shell Smash up. However, it gets a much stronger Hidden Power, which is great against common Water types in the tier like Gastrodon, something Huntail has a hard time dealing with. Just got to play it smooth with her.

Awww Poor Relicanth, always trying to be a Fossil Pokemon, but just didn't get quite extinct enough. Relicanth is pretty much a one trick pony, hit hard and keep on hitting (As a support it's alright, but there are better choices). Not much finesse in that. Of course, that doesn't mean he isn't good, most Pokemon do not like getting a Stab+Choice Band+Base 150 Head Smash to the face, not to mention he's protected from recoil thanks to Rock Head. Rock Polish set is a bit niche, so I went with a Choice Band set instead.

It's the OP metal tank it's self, Metagross! I don't really like the design of non-mega Metagross, but when he goes mega... he's tots epic. Probably one of the best megas in the game (Mega Slow is still too epic, but Mega Meta comes close). This set is built for his mega form, but Jolly ones can be retooled pretty easily. Of course, now he's banned from OU, so who knows how he'll fair in Ubers, and of course TPC seems adamant about erasing Megas from existence... stupid Z Moves...

Of course, Mega Meta isn't the only way to play Metagross. Assault Vest version does have some utility... though he doesn't have a reliable recovery method. I mostly did this set beacuse I liked how the Lure Ball matched him-great reason, I know-but I really just don't have anything that can connects well with him, especially since most of my pokes operate in the lower tiers...

Torterra is usually considered the worst of the Gen 4 Starters. But to say that it is the worst, really undermines what this guy can do. Sure, Empoleon has better typing and utility, while Infernape can break walls like nobody business, but Torterra has the bulk to set up and take hits. Furthermore, Torterra gets great recovery, something that's hard to find in the lower tiers. Of course, its main STAB, Wood Hammer, deals recoil but that can be healed back. I used Torterra for my second ever Pokemon play through (in Platinum), and while he's slow, he just tanked every single mon in the game, even Flint!

I feel for Bibarel, like any of the first-route-normal types that have been so pervasive throughout the Gens, like Raticate, Linoone, and Watchog, to name a few. They usually get relegated to mediocre roles, such as HM slaves, beacuse Game Freak never intended for them to shine. They were meant as a means to help ease new payers into the game. When I first saw Bidoof in Gen 4, I didn't even bother thinking about catching one, why bother when there's plenty of Starly to go around? However, its that weak charm that makes me love using Bibarel even more, beacuse nothing warms my cold dead heart than watching peeps rage quit after being stalled out by Bibarel.

Booya!!! A pokemon based on Pachycephalosaurus is always great! Mkay, I was one of those kids who loved dinosaurs when I was younger. Of course, I eventually grew out of it, but dinosaurs will always be epic. Rampardos is a pretty dang good pokemon... though pretty much a straight forward nuke. Point, charge, noob dies.

Honestly, I don't have much to day about Bastiodon. I never played through Pearl, so I only really like Rampardos. And to be frank, Rampardos is a much better Pokemon that Bastiodon. All Bastiodon has going for it is a bulky stall set, whilst Rampardos is an out of control heavy hitter. But I have found use with Bastiodon as a search lead for when I'm not entirely sure what my opponent is going to be running. That giant head-plate does make for a good punching bag so that my other friends can do their job more successfully.

Mothim is such an underappreciated pokemon in PU. Okay, sure, it's slow so it needs help to sweep. But once it gets rolling, it's deadly to alot of common PU threats. Let's do some calcs...
252+ SpA Choice Specs Mothim Bug Buzz vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Leafeon: 548-648 (202.2 - 239.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO
252+ SpA Choice Specs Mothim Air Slash vs. 44 HP / 0 SpD Gourgeist: 408-482 (144.6 - 170.9%) -- guaranteed OHKO

And there's plenty more. However, for some reason Mothim doesn't even get a spot on the viability rankings (as of me writing this). I've done HP Ground on this buddy as it's recommended. Boop the Probopass.

Perhaps the most annoying Pokemon to breed are those who have a low female/male ration (or the inverse). Salazzle for one, is cancerous beacuse you need to have that perfect spread for SpAtk. However, I generally find Combee to be a hard breed to preform. Even though it has a slightly better rate, beacuse the distinction between male and female is so obvious you feel incited with joy everytime you get one only to be disappointed when it's not perfect. It's a roller coaster that breaks you down. Still, Vespiquen is a great hard counter to some Pokemon, so I've found niche success with her. Running an old bulky attacker set beacuse few Bug attacks get that sweet Attack Order power with strong sustain.

I really love Gen 4 Pokemom, I really do. Pretty much every single Pokemon has solid designs, and have some competitive viability. But.... Purugly... it literally has 'ugly' right in the name. Glameow at least has some finesse, but Purugly is just a fat cat. I just want to stick a leash on her an see if we exercise her back into good health. Furthermore, that normal typing doesn't help. But at least she gets a lot of priority moves, so you can't really get revenged killed, ever. Named 'Princess' after Princess Caroline from Bojack Horseman.

Everyone has a Garchomp, or has had one. Even a filthy RU/NU/PU lover like me.. :3. I'm posting the one I bred for VGC here, just in case someone really need it. Garchomp is not a bad pokemon, it's just that... well... he's too good. There's no need with finesse when your land shark 0HKO's most of the lesser meta.

What? Munchlax has a competitive set? Are you serious? Okay, Munchlax certainly isn't as powerful as his future evolution, Snorlax, but he does hold his own down in the PU meta, thanks to that wonderful Thick Fat ability. However, beacuse of how tedious it is to get a Munchlax with the correct ability and the proper IV spread (I know, I tried), most people don't even bother. However, Munchlax makes for a fantastic wall if not the best offensive Pokemon in the lower tiers.

Lickilicky's belly is like a bean bag chair. Probably the best use for her to... :P. I'm joking, but Lickilicky is pretty dang slow, which doesn't help her if she wants to sweep, like she's been built to do. Get her paired with a speed passer however, and watch her,... bounce? roll?

I have to confess, when compared to Electivire's Gen 4 compatriots (Rhyperior and Magmortar), I really don't like him at all. It's really sad that physical Electric types get so sidelined, but there's just no reason to use Electivire over any other Pokemon, and running him as a mixed-attacker really can only go so far. Honestly, why not just use Magmortar (one of my all time favorite Pokemon) who does exactly the same job but better at the same tier, or Rhyperior who has more utility? Still, he has that fantastic Gen 4 design that just gives him a solid but fearsome look, so that's pretty much the only reason why I want one. Nostalgic Eye Candy. Sorry Electivire.

Froslass is an epic Pokemon. She's fast, and she can run a lot of moves, and doesn't really suffer from the 4 Slot Syndrome. I'm running a set up spread on her right now, but other sets are fine. Hidden Power Fire is niche, but still usable. Though I will say her shiny form is a bit underwhelming, I think I prefer her normal form. I would also prefer to have her in a Heal Ball I think, but I just didn't have the time. Maybe in the future.

Why do I always call Rotom-Frost, Rotom-Freeze? Force of habit, I guess, oh well. Unlike its brethren, Rotom-Frost is usually discarded beacuse it doesn't have the same utility as the others. Its typing leaves it open to a plethora of common weaknesses, and it doesn't have the speed to recover.

This is actually my second Battle Ready Girafarig. Turns out, my first one in Gen 6 actually had the offensive IV's in the wrong places. Whoops! Still, while I don't use her very often, I like using Girafarig as a low-tier passer over others like Mr. Mime. That's mostly beacuse Sap Sipper is such a great ability, but also beacuse she's such and underplayed Pokemon despite the support potential. Don't hesitate to try her out some time though, she won't let you down!

To be honest, I would have preferred a female Serperior, but a friend of mine's greatest achievement was breeding a shiny HP Fire Serperior, so I decided to 1-up him with this quick breed. Contrary Serperior is highly popular, and it's not hard to see why. However, I just feel like it's a bit awkward. It has terrible attack power, mediocre defense, and passable speed. Furthermore, it gets walled very easily, and has to stay on the field beacuse otherwise it looses its set up. I don't know, I just always prefer to hit hard, hit fast, and switch out to trade as best as possible. Serperior just doesn't work like that. At least the shiny is nice.

Samurott is universally panned as just being "meh" in the Gen 5 starter pool.

However, Samurott has something these other plebs can't do, which is wall break. Samurott has a great movepool, and the strength to use it and take a hit.

Like pretty much every generation (I'm looking at you Johto and Hoenn) Unova came with its standard 3 Tier Early Route Bird Pokemon in the form of Unfezant. Unlike all the others however, Unfezant has a very distinct plumage difference between its sexes. Specifically, male Unfezant looks like a gorgeous regal peacock whilst female Unfezant looks like a plucked chicken. I'm sorry, Unfezant F, its true. However, I tend to like Unfezant F simply beacuse it's not a bloody superhero cosplayer all the time. She just does her thing without spending the time to look good whilst doing it. I used Unfezant F in my first Unova play-through, and I still enjoy using her as a hard hitting flyer.

Gigalith joins a pretty large category of Pokemon from Gen 5 that were pretty epic for their time, but pretty drastically got worse once Gen 6 came around. However, unlike everyone else, Gigalith got a new lease on life with its new ability, Sand Steam. Getting that SpD maxed out made it into a terrifying tank for Gen 7, as evidenced by it appearing on a few VGC teams. I don't know if I'll be running Gigalith on any of my teams this year, but if I do it's probably going to be on my trick room team. You know, Gigalith kind of looks like a squat version of one of the monsters from that cartoon show... Ben-10? Maybe I should nickname mine after it. The world works in mysterious ways... cartoons actualizing in Pokemon.

Muhahaha, full Prankster Whimsicott. Supreme Taunt bait and useless against Dark types thanks to debuff, but if you can avoid that bane she is a powerful trap that abuses the shizz out of her ability. You can also switch out some of the status moves for others to further camper your opponent. This set largely revolves around Swaggering and stalling out your opponent. I've had extreme success with this set in Gen 6, but with the debuffs only time will tell how she fairs in the new meta.

I love Krookodile, not beacuse it's like Gharial-Garchomp, but beacuse it's such a solid Pokemon. People like to hate on Gen 5 designs, but I love how Krookodile looks, sleek but strong. I used Krookodile in my Gen 5 play through, and he saved my behind plenty of times. I had such trouble fighting Elesa beacuse literally everything she had 0HKO'd my team except my Sandile. I lost the first time I faced her beacuse her Emolga was a great threat, but once I bonded with my Sandile and we trained hard against the harsh desert storms, we came back and won easily!

I feel like Darmanitan was one of those Pokemon who could have been top tier, but was really just crushed by its gimmick. Sure, Zen Mode has its uses, but honestly, its really hard to get it right (I've done it, what once?). So Darmanitan gets relegated to your standard Scarf set user, just nuke until you drop. At least he has the movepool to pull it off pretty dang well, the happy little bugger.

I feel like Crustle just fits somewhere, you know? It's like he's a loose brick that needs to be plopped into place, thanks to that large sedimentary rock that is his shell. Of course, don't actual do that, I'm not sure Crustle would appreciate becoming a part of a wall or something. Crustle is notable mostly for his wide coverage thanks to his typing, and Shell Smash makes him a potent sweeper, but honestly I never get to use him, beacuse he doesn't synergize well with my other teams sadly. Maybe you'll use him more?

I love using Garbodor! Sure, it was my first flawless shiny I've ever bred naturally which is pretty epic, so I have some sentimentality about it. However, Garbodor is just a fun Pokemon to play with. Setting up entry hazards is great for my sweeping strategy (chip them then whack everyone with my Hawlucha), but Garbodor also gets access to the powerful Gunk Shot, so he can put out a fair amount of damage as well. This Garbodor is nicknamed "Trash Gyre" after the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which a gyre of trash in the Pacific, and was given away in the World Oceans Day Giveaway I hosted.

Duosion, not quite a zygote, but not quite a fetus. Sad state to be in. But hey, Duosion is a nice powerhouse under Trick Room, especially with such a high Special Attack. I spent ages trying to get a Hidden Power Fighting one, following the guide on Smogon for this set. Turns out, you don't need to have a 1 IV in Attack to get HP Fighting. Sigh. I bred this one in the first hour of working on her. 5 days of breeding down the drain. RNG, sight

Deadly mushrooms are not high on my list of "OP Monsters Who Screw My Team Comps Over", but once I found the magic that was Rage Powder Amoonguss (After being 100% kicked to the floor by one) I had to have him. Built to survive under Trick Room, though I usually use him for the Rage Powder, so I can let my buddies set up. Hidden Power Ice was kind of a fluke, but I'm not complaining. It's pretty hilarious if I drop Protect or something for HP Ice and watch the switch in fails XD. Still prefer Follow-Me-Senpai Pachi, but shh, don't tell him that.

Alomomola is one of the best success stories of a Pokemon people hated for being "Boring" and "Stupid", evolving over time to be an Ubers behemoth wall as people realized its potential. With that monstrous HP, Alomomola has no problem stalling out its foes, unless it gets poisoned. I went with HP Fire to put some heat on the off Ferrothorn, as it walls Alomomola completely, but Alomomola doesn't really have the slot for Hidden Power, sadly.

I love Galvantula, I really do. As one of the few pokes in the game who can set up Sticky Webs, along with a great combo of Thunder and Compound Eyes, Galvantula can help set up and murder anything that tries to stop it. Sure, it's frail, its SpAtk is mediocre, and its speed tier while good, is awkward, but that doesn't stop Galvantula from flooring its opponents when it needs to. When I ran mon-bug, I led with Galvantula and then my Mega Heracross had no problem sweeping. Of course, I eventually learned that my Galvantula was probably hacked once I started getting into serious VGC play (I got it off the GTS), but I still have it. Call me sentimental, but I couldn't bear to release it. I needed a Sticky Web setter to help my current team, especially for Buzzwole, so here's my Gen 7 one.

Klinklang is a really awesome pokemon. With access to Gear Grind to break substitutes, and Shift Gear, one of the few stat boosting moves that raises stats by a total of 3 stages, Klinklang can easily set up. Furthermore, it's steel type, and with Alolan Ninetails common this generation, I'm using it more as a sweeper than even my Hawlucha (though of course, Hawlucha is still a better overall sweeper).

Hyia Afro Samurai-Murica style! I love using Bouffalant, beacuse not only does he have several great offensive sets, but also a great ability. With webs support (Yay! Galvantula :P), he's going to have no trouble crashing through most enemy teams. When people complained that he wasn't related to Tauros, I was just pissed. Bouffalant stands well and truly alone from all the other bovines as his own proud unique beast!

Okay, look, I know Braviary's counterpart is just better all around, especially with that high SpD. But, come one, Braviary is epic. I've run it in multiple teams since Gen 5, and while it's not OP as some of the birds (Looking at you, Gen 6 Talonflame), Braviary will always get the job done for you. This set is designed for Choice Band, but since Jolly is pretty ubiquitous for Braviary, he can be retooled easily.

Hydreigon is one of the few SpAtk dragons in the game, especially interesting given that he's a 3 evolution dragon. He has a pretty good movepool with good coverage, and he's fast and strong enough to get set up as a finisher. Unfortunately, with the introduction of faeries, Hydreigon kind of became obsolete, especially since Mega Gardevoir was reigning champ during most of Gen 6. However, I got good use out of mine on my first Gen 6 Offensive build team, using him for late game coverage. This little gal might not be as powerful as she and her kind once were, but she'll still wreck pretty much everything. Though.. those hands... life must really suck for Hydreigons...

There's so little appreciation for middle evolution Pokemon, especially starter middle evolution's. It's just kind of a step, not quite that cute first stage, and not that powerful final stage, so people just don't care about them. I do however, really like Frogadier as a middle evolution. Froakie is a little flimsy, and Greninja is too edgy. Frogadier has that nice "ready to fight" but not too serious look to him. I went with Hidden Power Electric to troll Swanna's but it's a bit niche, so it might be necessary to remove it depending on how you want to play it.

I'm going to get a lot of flak for going with the female Pyroar version, after all, the male with that mane is pretty sweat. However, I prefer female Pyroar over the male, beacuse she's the quiet leader. She's noble, but not obnoxious, rub-it-in-your-face type. Furthermore, it's these little queens on the plains who do all the real work, and someone who's so hard working is a powerful ally on the battlefield.

"Oh Romeo, Oh Romeo, Where art thou my Romeo?!" In the beginning of Gen 6, when people were still scrambling to get perfect Pokemon, and bank hadn't been released yet, there was just little ole me, trying to collect shiny Pokemon. I got alot of shiny Pokemon, of course (and I still have a bunch of boxes full of them), but I always tried to get ones without a nickname. One of the more rare shiny Pokemon was Furfrou, beacuse chaining for it was a pain. I eventually got one via trading, but its name was "ROMEO" in all caps. Really annoying. So I decided to eventually rectify that if I ever was able to breed shiny Pokemon. Thus, in homage, this Furfrou is named Romeo. Of course, what is Romeo without a Juliet?

This Furfrou, named "Juliet" to give my other Furfrou a counterpart, is a more bulky set. With the meta as physical as it is, Furfrou actually becomes a top-notch tank when you run it with Cotton Guard. Sure, Focus Blast is a thing, but what can you do? I actually prefer using the bulky set, as it really just maximizes that unique Fur Coat ability to the extreme.

Malamar's one defining trait, is that it is a somewhat better Contrary user than Spinda. Pretty sad. Of course, that doesn't mean Malamar isin't strong, but it does need a lot of support to get into that position in which it can cut through enemy teams. I've found running her with my Galvantula's Sticky Webs seems to do the trick on BS, getting her out of that awkward speed tier. Of course, I've had to run Psycho Cut (which is a pretty solid move anyway) over Knock Off thanks to a lack of move tutors atm, but it'll work almost as well if not better.

I've really warmed up to Barbaracle. At first, I was all "Oh Lord Helix, what a monstrosity!", but now I really to appreciate the strength and power of Barbaracle. With access to solid coverage and the epic Shell Smash, he's going to be a solid choice for lower tiers for a long time. Of course, all his appendages are sentient... so are his legs/feet sentient as well? That has to be a cruddy life to live, always having your face smashed into the ground.

. I have a Non-Shiny variant of Barbaracle as well, beacuse Shiny Barbaracle makes me think he's sick all the time. Trying to get the Battle Royal Master Ribbon on this bloke was annoying and painful. Honestly, it's such a sweet set to use, and my shiny variant carried his team first match. But nope, this guy needs to die to literally everything even though he's exactly the same. Took 4 hours of grinding to finally get it.

Poor Dedenne, relegated to a Pika clone and an Anime gag. But Dedenne does have a unique trick up her... uh... cheek? With a combined Recycle + Cheek Pouch whilst holding a Petaya Berry, Dedenne can both heal herself and also boost her SpAtk to seriously deadly heights. Furthermore, Dedenne runs Substitute which will allow her to get to the Berry threshold and protect herself. It's not as good as Trevenant's Harvest set, but it's still pretty powerful down in the lower tiers if you can pull it off. Speaking of which, when I played through ORAS, I didn't really have any high level Pokemon available to escort my other Pokemon through leveling/ribbon gathering tasks, so I ended up grabbing a random high level Dedenne I had just as a 1-off support. Little did I know I would be a lazy procrastinator and thus never switch her out, so that Dedenne would reach Lvl 100 based on shear usage. Oops. So now one of my strongest and most memorable ORAS members is... a Dedenne. Yippee...

I came across this set once, and I knew, I just had to make it. It's all about those 4X weaknesses Pokemon might have. Use Calm Mind to set up, HP Fire and Power Gem against Rock/Fire 4X's, and Stealth Rocks if you're about to die. It's not the most viable set, but literally no one expects it. Furthermore, with how common 4X Rock/Fire is in the current meta, this is super fun to run.

At first, I wasn't really a big fan of Vikavolt. While the design is alright, that terrible speed just turned me off. Too fast for TR, to slow for sweeping. It's pretty much a glass cannon. However, it's kind of grown on me. Stag Beetle + Railgun is pretty cool, and that bug secondary typing makes it very unique. I've had some success using Vikavolt as a Kartana counter, but I've found I prefer counter-playing Salazzle off of it as she can get set up for the sweep on Kartana.

Yeah, I know, not the greatest of stats. But I don't have a homebrew device (no do I want to), and the IV's are not guaranteed, so I can't RNG and soft resetting is difficult. Also since it's an event, lol good luck on nature to. Of course, I love the Cherish Ball and how it matches, so I got the code. L-Midnight is kind of a bad looking Pokemon. Not in the sense like some hipster hating on new Pokemon, but I don't feel like it's something that could come around through natural evolution. The proportions are all off. Still, I had no problem bring her to the Battle Tree, so even though she's not as good as her brother, she still is a force to be reckoned with thanks to her coverage. Running Fire Fang for coverage, Stealth Rocks are recommended.

Definitely one of the better shiny Pokemon this generation. Since pallets are no longer set, shiny forms are created by the designer and not by the game engine. This could mean cool shinnies, but it's mostly resulted in pretty mediocre shiny Pokemon. Lycanroc on the other hand, looks fantastic. Sure, it's just a simple swap to blue, but it adds all the more flavor to him in my opinion. Honestly, among normal Pokemon this generation (I.E., not including legends), Lycanroc really is the best fit for my play style. I really should have chosen to bring one along in my adventures. Shame. Maybe next game?

Wishiwashi is squarely in the 'gimmick" Pokemon category. But unlike most others in that category (save Darmanitan and Rotom), Wishiwashi stands out as a pesudo-legend whilst in Schooling form. Initially, I was kind of put off by Wishiwashi, and it didn't help that the Totem Wishiwashi lagged so badly when I first met it (I mean, that's like one of the best cutscenes in Sun and Moon, but none of the Totems can run well on a Day-1 3DS). This is a Choice-Band variant of Wishiwashi for outside of Trick Room.

I'll had such high hopes for Mudsdale, I mean, come on, we haven't had a horse-like Pokemon since Gen 1 with Ponyta/Rapidash. Even then, they're bloody on fire. So normal horse? Sounds like a lot of fun. But I just couldn't fund a use for Mudsdale. A lot of the Gen 7 Pokemon fall into this unfortunate niche where they just don't have any usage potential beacuse other Pokemon do their job for them. A lot are mildly bulky and midely offensive, but nothing really stands out other than the Ultra Beasts. But eventually someone found use for Bojack as a bulky beater, so that's what I built here even though there are better sets to run now. Named "Bojack" after Bojack Horseman from... Bojack Horseman. This actually isn't my first Mudsdale named Bojack, I accidentally completed this entire set only to finally realize later that I did it on a Female Mudsdale. Oops.

Araquanid is among the premier crop of Gen 7, at least among competitive persons. With access to that wonderful ability Water Bubble, it shrugs off fire types and hits back hard. However, I have trouble really enjoying using Araquanid in battle. It just feels very... well.. meh. I like hitting hard and fast, and that's just not how Araquanid rolls. Water bugs like stalling out their prey, waiting to strike at the most opportune moment, which is exactly how you should run Araquanid. Wait to strike, and he'll work wonders.

Oh you wanted more than that? Uh,.. sure? Fomantis is one of those pokes who's first evo is a lot cuter than its next one. Seriously, this thing was built to be hugged and squeezed, whilst she cuts your face open with her razor lead hands... ow? Sorry she has a 30 in Atk, I did her as more of a troll project than for actual viability.


(#758 - Salazzle )

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Timid | Corrosion | Standard Breeding
IVs: 30 | 0 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Dragon)
Ev'd: Sludge Wave, Fire Blast, Nasty Plot, Protect
{252 SpAtk / 4 SpD / 252 Spd}

Salazzle certainly isn't my top pick for best looking Pokemon. In fact, I have a hard time believing she fits the Pokemon theme. However, this snappy little salamander is deadly on the battlefield, especially after a Nasty Plot. I brought her to the most recent competition, and she preformed marvelously (mostly beacuse of Sludge Wave in doubles is good). Eat that Crobat!
*Note, the 30 in HP is a result of really bad RNG. I was at 500+ eggs, and she was the closest to flawless I could get. Honestly, does it matter when you die in 1 hit anyway?


(#766 - Passimian )

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Adamant | Receiver | Standard Breeding
IVs: 31 | 31 | 31 | 0 | 31 | 31 (HP Electric)
Ev'd: Close Combat, Iron Head, Rock Slide, U-Turn
{252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spd}

Choice + Great moveset = Passimian is alright. His counterpart, Oranguru gets most of the spotlight thanks to its ability to set up Trick Room easily, but don't count Passimian out. He's decently fast, and has pretty dang good attack for a gimmick Pokemon. I didn't intend to do a Passimian battle ready, but I got such a cool little guy with a nice IV spread, so I felt at least I owed him enough to make him stronger. I haven't gotten the chance to try him out in battle yet, so if you pick him up, let me know how he fights. I'm really curious to see if someone can find utility in his ability, Receiver.


(#768 - Golisopod

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Han Beach (Alola)
Impish | Emergency Exit | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 31 | 31 | 8 | 31 | 31 (HP Electric)
Ev'd: Liquidation, Leech Life, Sucker Punch, Spikes
*Note* I'm running Sucker Punch, but Toxic is recommended
{252 HP / 172 Def / 84 Spd}

Golisopod, Golisopod, oh Golisopod. You had so much promise, being the star Pokemon of one of the more pervasive supporting characters in Sun and Moon. Golisopod falls into the Gen 7 trap of being a great looking Pokemon, but just being medicore all around in everything. Besides, he gets shafted by his partner, Araquanid who with the same typing preforms much better. Of course, I'm sure we'll find him a niche eventually, but until then he's going to be sitting on the sidelines.


(#770 - Palossand Ø
)


OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Relaxed | Water Compaction | Standard Breeding
IVs: 31 | 0 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 0 (HP Psychic)
Ev'd: Earth Power, Shadow Ball, Shore Up, Amnesia
{252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def}

It's the Vanilluxe of Gen 7! Sure, people love to hate on Game Freak for supposedly pulling pokes out of the bottom of the barrel, but those fools are all Genwuners. Noobs, the lot of them. Palossand is one of those weird pokes that wants to get hit by something it doesn't want to get hit by. Suicidal much? But with the introduction of Oranguru as a more viable TR setter than Musharna, I thought it was a good idea to bring something that could turn the tables onto him. Of course, I was an idiot and went for Relaxed instead of Sassy... but we can't all be smart!


(#776 - Turtonator )

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Quiet | Shell Armor | Standard Breeding
IVs: 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 0 (HP Ice)
Ev'd: Draco Meteor, Stone Edge, Earthquake, Flamethrower
{248 HP / 28 Atk / 232 SpD}

I like turtles. Carracosta is great and one of my premier Pokes. Blastoise is a classic. Torterra is an underrated behemoth. Even Torkoal has its place. But with my dislike of Gen 7 as a whole, I really overlooked this great Pokemon. What's so special about this Fire/Dragon? He's a bloody Mata Mata, that's what, one of the most unique turtles around. They're great a camouflage (they look like leaves), and they have a bizarre face. I can't wait to get my turtle team going!


(#779 - Bruxish
)


OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Secluded Shore (Alola)
Jolly | Strong Jaw | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 31 | 31 | 15 | 31 | 31 (HP Dark)
Ev'd: Psychic Fangs, Crunch, Aqua Jet, Swords Dance
{252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd}

Again, Bruxish is one of those new Gen 7 Pokemon that I really didn't feel was that great. Seeing it in the trailers for S&M, I just kept thinking how corny it looked. Besides, why use Bruxish when you have Basculin? But the more I looked at her, the more I realized how great she could be. Swords Dance is good for sweeping potential, and with decent coverage, she can be a real threat to teams. Strong Jaw is probably going to be the only ability you see her with, but Dazzling seems like a niche ability that could work well to if you find a use for it.


(#779 - Bruxish )

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Paniola Ranch (Alola)
Jolly | Strong Jaw | Standard Breeding
IVs: 31 | 31 | 31 | 9 | 31 | 31 (HP Dark)
Ev'd: Psychic Fangs, Waterfall, Crunch, Aqua Jet
{252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd}

If you're wondering why I have another non-shiny Bruxish, well I just liked how much the Heal Ball matched her NS form. This set is built for Choice Band, which may be better than set up Bruxish as it can use Waterfall for some nice damage (though not boosted by Strong Jaw). Using Choice Band Bruxish may be a better choice than set up Bruxish, just beacuse of how frail it is.


(#781 - Dhelmise "HMS Resolute" Ø
)


OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Seafolk Village (Alola)
Brave | Steelworker | SSR Method
IVs:
31 | 31 | 31 | 8 | 31 | 0 (HP Water)
Ev'd: Power Whip, Anchor Shot, Shadow Claw, Protect
{192 HP / 252 Atk / 12 Def /52 SpD}

Dhelmise is an interesting bloke. There aren't many true TR Grass Pokemon, but then someone of the most common Pokemon TR teams face aren't going to be fazed by a Dhelmise. However, what I've found is that Dhelmise works well as an anti-anti-TR defender. Pokemon that an opponent might bring to mess with TR teams, like Palossand and Gigalith who can work outside of TR teams but feed off teams that do try to use TR on them, Dhelmise makes short work of. Heck, with such great coverage, Dhelmise can work well to shore up team holes on TR teams. Of course, it sadly lacks the stable recovery to make it work the best, but I think we'll see more Dhelmise in the future.


(#787 - Tapu Bulu Ø)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Ruins of Abundance (Alola)
Adamant | Grassy Surge | Soft-Reset
IVs: 31 | 31 | 31 | 8 | 31 | 31 (HP Grass)
Ev'd: Horn Leech, Bulk Up, Leech Seed, Protect
{160 HP / 252 Atk / 96 Spd}

Tapu Bulu probably based upon Lono, a fertility, peace, and music god based in Hawaiian mythology. According to the mythology, Lono used his nets to drag up from the ocean the sun and moon and put them in the sky. He's widely regarded as the weakest of the Tapus, but come on, that's pretty impressive! I don't like all the other Tapu's, but Bulu is definitely the best designed one, even if he's sort of the odd one out in competitive play. Went with the Horn Leach set, beacuse it's absolute filth against a lot of teams that can't hard counter grass types.


(#788 - Tapu Fini Ø)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Ruins of Hope (Alola)
Bold | Misty Surge | Soft-Reset
IVs: 31 | 0 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Dragon)
Ev'd: Moon Blast, Surf, Calm Mind, Taunt
{244 HP / 252 SpAtk / 12 Spd}

I was going for a HP Fire set, hence the Master Ball rather than a better matching ball like a Net Ball, but this 5IV nearly flawless gem showed up while I was SRing, and it was too good to pass up. Tapu Fini is probably the Tapu I like the least, mostly beacuse it looks pretty weird. I mean, we've had some human-ish like Pokemon, mostly apes and fighting types, but Tapu Fini seems the closest to us catching a literal human (though in a shell). I probably won't use Tapu Fini much, except for clearing the E4 beacuse she's (okay, Tapu Fini is genderless, but I mean, come on...) pretty good at that this Gen, but I'm sure she's a real powerhouse on the field.


(#791 - Solgaleo Ø)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Alter of the Sunne (Alola)
Adamant | Full Metal Body | Soft-Reset
IVs: 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Dragon)
Ev'd: Sunsteel Strike, Toxic, Earthquake, Flare Blitz
{252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spd}

Yaaaas!!! Hyper Training makes SRing Legends SOOO much easier! So here's a Solgaleo! Honestly, not one of my favorite legends, but who am I to complain against something that deals nicely with stupid @#&%*#! Geomancy Xerneas (I lost regionals beacuse of great RNG on the part of my opponents Xerneas...). Though, I really haven't had much use for him unfortunately.


(#794 - Buzzwole Ø)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Melemele Meadow (Alola)
Jolly | Beast Boost | Soft-Reset
IVs: 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Ice)
Ev'd: Super Power, Leech Life, Poison Jab, Ice Punch
{252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spd}

Literally the most Shonen pokemon ever conceived. I mean, look at those bloody arms, steroids much? Initially, I really wasn't warm to Buzzwoles design (along with most of the other UBs), but its really grown on me. I built this set specifically for VGC, since I had room for a choice-item pokemon. Of course, first VGC match I played, he died first turn to a stupid Fissure. Facepalmingly stupid RNG. Also, have you ever tried petting this thing in PK Refresh? Super weird...


(#794 - Buzzwole Ø)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Melemele Meadow (Alola)
Impish | Beast Boost | Soft-Reset
IVs: 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Psychic)
Ev'd: Hammer Arm, Toxic, Roost, Earthquake
{ 248 HP/ 184 Def / 76 SpD}

Standard Ubers set for Buzzole. I actually don't like this set as much as choice-wole (above). I usually run stall pokemon together, and Buzzwole just doesn't seem the type of pokemon to stall out his enemies. I didn't have this Buzzwole ready for the last update, beacuse I screwed up on his SpD and Def (I flipped them -_-). Don't worry, fixed now, and he's ready to roll.


(#798 - Kartana Ø)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Malie Garden (Alola)
Jolly | Beast Boost | SSR Method
IVs: 31
| 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Dragon)
Ev'd: Leaf Blade, Sacred Sword, Smart Strike, Swords Dance
{252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd}

Kartana makes for a wonderful beater Pokemon, with a typing shared only by the heavily defense Ferrothorn. That exceptionally over powered Attack stat almost makes it so Kartana doesn't even need to bother with a Swords Dance or to to break walls unlike many other beaters, and that decent speed allows it to out speed most threats except some fast fire types. Though, given its stature, you wouldn't believe it. Seriously, this thing is tiny. Still, good things come in small packages, and Kartana does not disappoint! Standard Kartana set on it.


(#800 - Necrozma Ø)

OT: Nasuada | ID: 483625 | Ten Carat Hill (Alola)
Bold | Prism Armor | Soft-Reset
IVs: 31 | 7 | 31 | 31 | 31 | 31 (HP Dark)
Ev'd: Stored Power, Calm Mind, Rock Polish, Moonlight
{252 HP / 24 Def / 232 Spd}

I do like Necrozma's design. Kind of like the Gen 7 Darkrai. He's got the sinister look, but still looks quite powerful too and not just edgy for the lols. However, unlike Darkrai, it seems like this little monster just is not quite that powerful. I went with the Stored Power special set, since that's recommended, but I actually prefer a more physical set on my Necrozma. It's just more reliable, if weaker. Of course, it looks like Necrozma is going to be the Kyurem of Gen 7, so it's going to be interesting to see how it changes with the newer games. Here's to hoping for a bright future for this little guy!

*Note, all redistribution rights are non-redis by default, but if you want rights, please ask. Ribbons are not mentioned unless relevant, but I try to have at least all the champion ribbons available on each pokemon.
**Note, Gold text means that that stat was Hyper Trained from a non-30 IV stat. Pink text means that that stat was Hyper Trained from a 30 IV stat.
***Note, I'm more interested in getting people to love using 'less appreciated' pokes, than I am in getting trades. So I'm more likely to give you a very cheap deal (free or something small) for pokes that aren't used as often then I am for others.

Well here's a blast from the past, Guts Raticate. Alolan Raticate has nothing on OG Raticate. Sure, he's old fashioned, but Alolan Raticate lost speed and power for more bulk and a 4X Weakness to Fighting. Rip in pieces. I love using Raticate for some quick Guts trolling (along with my Toxic Boost Zangoose), beacuse once he gets his status, there's not much any team can do against him. Along with Fearow, I rate him as one of the most underappreciated Gen 1 charms. I'm running Flame Wheel on him beacuse Forretress doesn't enjoy it, but you can U-Turn for some quick getaways.

How long has Heracross been waiting to be added here? Too long. Sure, Heracross isn't as good as its buddy Pinsir in sweeping thanks to its new mega, but Heracross is a beast with that Skill Link. I usually have to Baton Pass speed onto him, or set up Tailwind, but once he gets rolling, I have really have no issues 0HKO'ing everything that doesn't resist him. I went for the standard OU set on him, but personally I like the Jolly set more.

Say... that Pachirisu looks familiar.... where did I see it before... Yup it's a mock up of Sejun Parks Pachirisu from VGC 2014 World Championships! I've dubbed this set "Follow Me Senpai", beacuse its basically Rage Powder Amoonguss, but cuter! Seeing that Pachirisu face down top tier VGC threats was fantastical, and pretty much the biggest thing to inspire me to bring off-meta pokes to any tournaments I go into. Sure, I might lose more, but at least I'll have fun doing it. I've got her running Iron Tail so I could more easily get ribbons, but you should switch that to Protect to be more faithful to the OG.

What, you though Mismagius was only viable for support? When given the right set up, she becomes a nice little sweeper to! Bred for HP Fighting, to deal with those nasty Steel, Dark, and Normal types.

There's nothing more bad-arse then a giant Pokemon with literal cannons for hands. Yup, Magmortar can be a powerful asset to any team that wants to crush anyone with near-impunity. I've used Magmortar to take down the toughest of opponents since Gen 4, from Cynthia to Diantha. I've used Magmortar to breed the vast majority of my pokemon. I've even used Magmortar in several of my regional matches. Yup, Magmortar is a good little beast to have your back.

Current Moves: |Dark Pulse|Sludge Bomb|Dark Void|Nasty Plot|


Darkrai ranks as one of my most favorite pokemon, I mean, come on, look at that excellent design! It's like a dark foreboding mixed with the warmth of GF's cartoony feel. If that's not good enough, it also gets access to one of (or at least used to be) the most OP moves in the game, Dark Void. However, with Gen 7, Darkrai got his signature move nerfed heavily to the point where it's practically unusable, ending the triumph of a once great Pokemon. I was really lucking in SRing this on my Y cart, and got one with 3IVs in Atk in only a few hours.

Fossils are fun to play with... but so hard to breed. I started breeding Tirtouga a long time ago, stopped, and only recently resumed to finish it. This little tank is the result. Bred for a 0 in speed, just in case of a Trick Room.

Just a happy little breeding accident, and this little gem came along.

This is the result of me trying to learn to RNG Abuse (RNG Abused on my White 2 if you hadn't already figured out). And while I could have tried for a shiny, or HP Fighting, I decided beacuse I'm a complete noob I'm still learning, I'd better start with something a little easier. And since no one seems to have a good Cryogonal, why not. Use it for some fast set-up protection, and have fun!

Volcanion didn't get alot of love in Gen 6, sadly, in part due to it being released late in the generation. However, Volcanion is a beast, with a very unique typing and immunity to water thanks to its ability. Honestly, one of the best legends released in a while, at least design wise. This set is designed for singles, but since Modest is universal for Volcanion, it can be re-tooled for other sets. I'm also an idiot, and I thought the 28 was a 2 when I saved, so that Atk is too high...

Just a different set on the above Volcanion, this one for offensive Doubles. I left Earth Power on it since it's a transfer only move (along with Heat Wave), but I recommend using Sludge Bomb, given how prevalent fairies are this Gen. I really haven't had the chance to try Volcanion out in doubles, so if you do, let me know how it goes!
