without even looking i remember that the plat hall venusaur definitely had sludge to go with toxic/protect/frenzy plant. why didnt you check the list before posting that
I actually did try to look at the list but it wouldn't load before. I tried again just before and it worked, and that Venusaur was there. Sorry.without even looking i remember that the plat hall venusaur definitely had sludge to go with toxic/protect/frenzy plant. why didnt you check the list before posting that
I've always had some issues with Scizor, probably just me, but I just can't seem to make him last long enough to set up. With Garchomp I can easily set up, but even with maxed speed there are still sixty-seven pokes I can face that outspeed me, twenty-seven of which can break my substitute, if I have one up, and one of which also has a OHKO move (forget Dugtrio >_>). Thing is, I still can't think of anything better than Garchomp for it.I'm really deciding on using your Scizor, Jumpman, in replace of my Garchomp, but altered in EV's, looking at some things it can do, it can prove to be much more effective than I imagine, since most of the time with my trick Latias, I'm always switching in Drapion for assurance wins, but I'm iffy with Garchomp ... Scizor seems to be the stable one, even though I would of considered Metagross instead, Technician is great. Hope you don't mind? D: I've rarely had any problems with trickscarf lead, if so I'd cripple their leads with anything preventing trick, so it's a winner still in my book. ;]
Let me know how that goes for you, Scizor's always been one of my favourites, but I've never seen him as as durable as he'd need to be for the Battle Tower. Who are you pairing him up with?Scizor seems the same with weaknesses and strengths as Garchomp in retrospect, though I just see Scizor more durable, Im going to check it out and see how far I go.
Latias and Drapion, basically similar to Jumpman's team but with a few tweaks I'm figuring out with the EV's.Let me know how that goes for you, Scizor's always been one of my favourites, but I've never seen him as as durable as he'd need to be for the Battle Tower. Who are you pairing him up with?
Oh, damn, I searched for the highest speed Pokemon by putting Speed > 180 and didn't see that there was a second page.@Efemera: I don't get why you want 189 speed. It doesn't outspeed anything in particular. It speed ties +speed 120 (Sceptile, Dugtrio)... doesn't even outspeed them, and neither of those are much threat to Ninjask. With Ninjask being the fastest pokemon in Battle Tower (without Scarf), you'd want to make use of that speed instead of letting it speed tie +speed 120s. If you want to outspeed everything (including scarfers) after 1 speed boost, you should just not have any speed EVs and have protect.
If you want to outspeed everything including scarfers, that's not possible, but really, you don't need to since Linoone shouldn't be much of a threat anyway. With 252 Speed EVs (Adamant), you outspeed +Speed Electrode, which might be a good idea seeing how one of the timid Electrodes have Thunder.
You need something that will be able to switch in on flying, ice, and fire attacks (at least) seeing how both Ninjask and Breloom will die pretty quickly to those. What that would be... up to you to decide.
Shedinja isn't an issue after battle 21, he doesn't show up at all. The information there has always been reliable to me, though it did tell me that a Jolly Garchomp with a perfect speed IV and max speed effort points would have 168 speed, when it is in fact 169. So a few errors here and there, but for the most part I've found it to be sound.Oh, damn, I searched for the highest speed Pokemon by putting Speed > 180 and didn't see that there was a second page.
However, +speed base 120s have 188 speed, not 189, so 189 speed should be enough to outspeed them.Never mind, you're right. Is the information here inaccurate? http://www.snapperthetwig.com/poke/search.php
I'm aware of my Flying/Fire/Ice weakness. Tyranitar resists Flying and Fire and is neutral to Ice, takes out Shedinja, has enough bulk to take powerful neutral hits, especially if they're Special, and benefits greatly from speed boosts, so I'm considering using him.
I don't like the idea of being stuck with Ninjask as my last Pokemon and being unable to do any damage. I think I am going to ditch Breloom in favor of something more durable, though.@ Efemera: Give Ninjask Protect so you can 1) oustpeed Scarfed pokémon and 2) Get more Speed boosts 3) Scout for moves. You could also give it some Stat-boosting Berry so you can pass that on too when you get low HP.
I realise that you are using sub to buy time and get more Speed boosts but how are you actually going to Baton Pass to Breloom without him dying? Trying to actually get a working sub and THEN Baton Pass is going to be quite hard on Ninjask's defensive stats. With Ninjask and Breloom having similar weaknesses I am guessing Breloom could be killed with one attack pretty often after Baton Pass. So I suggest giving Breloom Focus Sash so that at least he won't always die before you can use Spore.
I'm right there with you in thinking both Protect and SD can be useful. There doesn't seem to be much point in a damage move on Ninjask to be honest I'm not sure why you want it. Wouldn't you rather spend that one turn using Swords Dance and passing that on to something much deadlier like the Tyranitar you mentioned? You could of course always give the Sash to Ninjask so you can do Protect-SD-Protect-BP (try for Sub if they don't att too?). That would give you +3 Sp and +2 Att to a sweeper of your choice.
Actually, My Garchomp has trouble with Lickylicky. I can't seem to do more than 49% with Outrage. I'm using...Also, Garchomp is shit in the hall, it almost always (99.7% chance or something) loses to Weavile, which appears pretty regularly. Salamence seems to be the new standard now.
Eh, it might lose to weavile, but if you can avoid it in the first 20 (ice + dark), you have a pretty good shot of making it far. I got 186 with just a sashchomp, and although I never ran into weavile (in that streak), garchomp is a good pokemon to use if you have patience.Try a Choice Band. You generally only need one move against any opponent, and maximising your attack is important.
