EVs: 6 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
- Meteor Mash

Starmie @ Brightpowder

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
EVs: 6 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

Dusclops @ Chesto Berry

I do not have an EV set for Dusclops, so any and all are welcome. I am aware that the Metagross EV set is generally not accepted, however, I already trained it, so there is not much else that I can do.
Other than re-breed. >_<

For the Dragon Dancing set, as you obviously have Metagross as your Choice Bander.

Rock Slide>Sludge Bomb for Metagross please.

Make Salamence your starter and make Starmie Timid nature.

17th December 2006, 12:58 AM
Starmie doesn't need timid. Only ~15 pokes outspeed Modest Starmie.

17th December 2006, 1:10 AM
Yes, I'm not too partial on Timid Starmie. As for Rock Slide > Sludge Bomb, I dunno..... Second opinion?
Also, considering a replacement for Salamence. Weezing, anyone?

17th December 2006, 1:17 AM
Regice > Weezing. You need a special wall like hell. Metagross can take a hit with 130 base defense.

RS > SB on Gross.

17th December 2006, 1:36 AM
Regice, dusclops, Vaporeon.... countless walls you can use.

Regice recomended.

As for rockslide over sludge bomb, rockslide is better. Sludge bomb= Grass killer, wich your salamance allready does. Rockslide= Flying, Fire, and Ice. There is also the flinching possibility.

Rock Slide noted and edited. Dusclops seems like a good plan, however I have no way to breed Pain Split onto it, seeing as I do not own a copy of Leaf Green/own a Misdreavus.

Careful/Impish nature (+Sdef, -Satk) (+Def, -Satk)
Trait: Pressure

- Seismic Toss
- Rest

Switch leftovers for chesto berry... I recomend giving leftovers to Starmie, allthough brightpowder works aswell.

Whoops, I meant Chesto berry. Thanks for pointing that out, Leith.

17th December 2006, 2:27 AM
I like that Dusclops. I'll most likely go Careful because of my lack of a special wall. Update the first post, I shall.

17th December 2006, 3:12 AM
You mean special wall...

Anyways.. An interesting note, only 5 pokes outspeed Max Speed, IV, EV, Timid Starmie.(363 Speed)

The 4 Ninjasks in the game and 1 out of 4 Jolteons.

17th December 2006, 9:32 AM
Needs someone who actually knows EVs....like me:

Dusclops EVs: 252 HP / 164 Def / 92 SDef

howling houndour
17th December 2006, 10:27 AM
dusclops EVs:252hp/24attack/118defense/118spdefense
(24 attack for 1HKO'ing alakazam with shadow ball)

17th December 2006, 1:35 PM
Yeah, but dusc needs a 31 IV in attack to do that.
