Yanma @ Liechi Berry
Ability: Speed Boost
Adamant Nature
- Endure
- Reversal
- Protect
- Shadow Ball
EV's: 252 Attack , 252 Speed , 6 HP

Probably the best to do:
1. Protect for Speed
2. Endure for Liechi activation and Speed again and to go for Reversal
3. Protect for Speed
4. PWN th4t m0th4...

I've tried breeding for Reversal but it doesn't work. Which pokemon should I breed it with??

Could breed it with Heracross, and I believe Pinsir... not sure about the last though...

And you could go with Signal Beam over Shadow Ball... although you have a problem with ghosts then... but it is a good STABbed move... but again, lots o' breeding...

EDIT: Was wrong about Pinsir... you could do it with Scyther/Scizor, but they also need to breed for it... so Hera''s the only option

Go with Shadow Ball... that's what I'd do... but if you don't have a Bug-attacking pokémon and u have the time to breed you COULD go with Signal Beam..

Would a special attacker Yanma work well??

Yanma@ Modest Nature

Psychic
Giga Drain
Hypnosis
Detect????

No it won't.

Reversal Yanma ONLY please.

They're coming up with new ideas...I'm a big fan of tthe Choice Band Yanma myself xD...

Won't work... Yanma is too weak to put on a real offensive battle.... you actually need the speed/liechi to do something...

Yanma@ Modest Nature

Hypnosis
Detect????

I seriously don't think that'd work... but IF you do it, that'd be the best set I think...


No it won't.

Reversal Yanma ONLY please.

yeah, but other sets are just discussed too here, so...


;5084442']They're coming up with new ideas...I'm a big fan of tthe Choice Band Yanma myself xD...

I'm gonna make one right away :P

Thanks everyone I think I'll go with the Reversal set!

18th December 2006, 6:53 PM
definitely go protect/sub/reversal/shadow ball. Shadow ball covers everything that reversal doesn't, protect first turn if you aren't faster so that you can sub down to leichi berry+reversal.

The bad thing is though I have tried breeding my Yanma with Heracross for Reversal but the daycare guy says ' The 2 don't seem to like each other '

ludicolo_kid
18th December 2006, 6:57 PM
You will still get an egg. You only won't get an egg if he says, "The two prefer to play with other pokemon". It just will take longer but trsut me it stil works.

no don't go in a house. Just go along that straight line. You know from the battle tent sign in verdanturf to the rock in the sand to the left of mauville just go sideways back and forth.

Sceptile_rules06

[Kingdra] : It is traded

Does it matter?

Anyway, Adamant with Speed Boost would be the best (at least with Speed Boost)

Definitely go for Adamant.

It's taken me ages to get this Yanma! Naive is good enough for me and that's what counts!

ludicolo_kid
18th December 2006, 8:18 PM
it actually doesn't take that much longer to get adamant and its worth it. The important thing is that you have speed boost though.

[Kingdra]
18th December 2006, 8:18 PM
I think you can spend the like 10 minutes to get and Adamant Yanma...

Just hatched another 2 eggs. Both have Speed Boost, one Timid ( it sucks, I know) and a Lonely one.

Can I get away with a Lonely one??

ludicolo_kid
18th December 2006, 8:29 PM
yeah i guess it's good enough if you're lazy.

[Kingdra]
18th December 2006, 8:30 PM
Rock types will then say bye-bye to Yanma (not like he'd survive one anyway)

GREAT!!! :D ... Not necessary for me, but great!!! Are you training with EV's?

hmmm... I wouldn't , for Scyther there are LOTS of other options... but you could do it!

[Kingdra]
18th December 2006, 8:34 PM
If he's not EV training he's going to get a bunch of whining team raters again =P
