I think I may have found a great pokemon for the hall, now I just need to do some serious breeding.
Posting because I need to know if this is good enough to let me reach +100 in Battle Tower. Worked for me until #41 but then I accidentally turned off my DS so I dunno. Anyways, I hope I didn't rip this off from someone (and I also hope I can ask for suggestions lol)
Uxie @ Choice Scarf
EVs: 244 HP / 84 Def / 164 Spd / 12 SDef (4 EVs remaining)
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Thunder Wave
The standard Trick lead...kinda. Uxie can take blows pretty well and Trick/Thunder Wave them at least. Memento is basically a Dual Screen that lasts forever but doesn't affect Clear Body, and helps me escape stupid stuff like Icy Wind/Rock Tomb/Wobbuffet (though only one). I don't have to sacrifice Uxie right away, but I dunno if Scizor/Latias fails to sweep Mementoing something might help the remaining Poke. Meh not much to say here
Latias @ Leftovers
EVs: 12 HP / 248 Satk / 248 Spd
Timid Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Calm Mind
- Dragon Pulse
- Hidden Power [Fire]
Latias' bulkiness helps take Fire Blasts/Surfs better than Latios (the former nearly killed me when Latias got burned, and Latios would've died). HP Fire is for the only one Shedinja that appears there, though it can also help against Scizors/Metagrosses. Substitute is basically a must to take measures against hax-whether it may be Brightpowder miss, or Quick Claw OHKO, or something faster...
Scizor @ Sitrus Berry
EVs: 94 HP / 252 Atk / 164 Spd
- Swords Dance
- Bullet Punch
Scizor is an absolute menace. The steel typing helps it tremendously in absorbing a good amount of attacks, particularly the ones that hit Uxie super effectively. Sitrus Berry for the lack of better item.
Again, Substitute is a must. It helps Scizor survive an attack from Moltres and KO it with Bullet Punch. Superpower to smash Steels that may survive the Bullet Punch, like Metagross (which Scizor outruns).
Yeah I guess this isn't a record yet
But on the actual topic:
Factory: 21 Lv.50 (and still going)
Arcade: 21 (still going)
Hall: 49 I think (Argenta then metagamed me with Hippowdon when I used Lucario)
Nothing to show off here...just move on...
Snapper's tool is pretty awesome ^_^
I don't get why you'd even think about using Stone Edge... After it used Power Trick, anything, even Crunch (or basically any physical attack that's not rage or rapid spin) would OHKO shuckle. Too bad on your lost though. 55 isn't bad at all!Out comes a Shuckle. Shit. I use Stone Edge for 20% or something like that, he uses Power Trick.
436 | Shuckle | Impish | Lax Incense | Stone Edge | Bug Bite | Swagger | Power Trick | HP/Def/SpD
I laugh as i put Stone Edge again, and it should have done around 80%, killing him..
except that it misses.
hmm I am thinking about adding a "pokémon ranking" to the battle hall to motivate people to try different pokémon...the list is basically salamence/garchomp and the occasional togekiss and that just looks awful and any new garchomp user makes me somewhat sick :(
which in this case still kills since he did 20% with his first stone edge, lolEDIT: ok, actually, not quite rapid spin lol, but a 40 base power move from Hippo's 355 attack will do minimum 81% damage to the 56 def (from power trick) 223 HP shuckle.
yeah this is exactly how i lost in the battle arcade four days ago at battle 70. i'd started battle 57 at around 9pm and went very smoothly through seven to 63 wins. i looked at the clock and it said 9:40, and i "have to" be in bed by 10:20pm if i dont want to be tired the next day but i felt "ok", and that i could get through the next seven and be seven from the record. i could kind of feel myself getting tired though, and when playing the arcade you really, really, really need to have your reaction time as sharp as possible or it will fuck you up.I was getting tired and saw no reason to change my moves >< Playing until 2/3 am at night certainly doesn't help in making decisions, especially since it was near the last battle and i wanted to sleep.
This may sound odd, but I somewhat dislike slowing down the board, it kinda... messes up my rhythm. After one streak that happened to end at 75 due to human error, I was just flopping around in the early rounds because I was so used to that faster speed. So eh, the board speed panel just isn't one of my more favorable options. I'm already in the hundreds my team, it's amazing how great Fast's yawn & cripple strategy works in the Arcade. And if I select burn, poison, or par... hey, I'll gladly take advantage of it.was able to rush up there no problem because its amazing how well the team works without items, and also i was able to slow the board down after battle 74 and after 79 which helps incredibly.
Your wish is my command - Lv 100 Stats are can now be displayed.I had to look for it manually then, but nice tool. I would appreciate an update introducing stats. Level 100 stats would be also nice for people who play Lv.100 Factory.
yeah that's what it would be, mine is 647 because i have streaks of: 243 with Porygon-Z, 178 with Tyranitar, 177 with Kingdra, and 49 with Tauros (thanks for using Alakazam in battle 50 Argenta, the only pokemon besides Forretress that can consistently beat Tauros), which add up to 647. idk if you want pictures of these or whatever now that we're recognizing hall successes differently, but either way, the total win streak thing is dubious because as you can see it includes my tauros streak which is only 49jump I have only done 1 pokémon so far in the hall, does the total win-streak consist of all the highest records of all pokémon you used? like if you did tyranitar, kingdra and I don´t know what else and managed 170 with all 3 then your highest total win-streak is 510?
Alakazam obliterates you with Expert Belt Focus Blast. Fury Swipes does not beat Focus Sash. Infernape destroys you with Fake Out + Close Combat, or just Close Combat since you're slower. And you can't use Giga Impact as your primary attack.It's just theorymon but (for the hall):
Slaking @ choice band
-fire punch/fury swipes
Slaking OHKOs almost everything that it can hit neutrally. In fact the only way to survive is to have a focus sash, substitute, or be very bulky.
Giga impact is far better than return, as unlike competative play, you cannot switch and are foced into traunt anyway. Earthquake hits those rocks and steels who resist normal. Shadow claw hits rotom, gengar and co. Fire puch hits skarm and bronzong. And finally fury swipes- my attempt to overcome focus sash. Although it often needs to hit more than 2 times, which sucks when we factor in battle frontier luck.
Futhermore, Scizor is a huge problem here. Also, although i desperatly want this to work, giga impact's 90% accuracy is really not good enough.
Also, the new system for the hall is much better. But Jump's idea of the total record might be quite challenging.Considering there are ~480 pokemon allowed and everyone can get at least 20, and fully evolved one's can get 80. Prehaps it should be all records over 170, together. For example say you got 180 with togetkiss, 200 with porygon z and 170 with salamence, you would have 550.
I don't mean to moan, but what i really don't like about the hall is how easy it is to copy another "team" and easily get a record on the board. Unfortunatly that will stay the same no matter how the records are displayed.
