Flareon - go for the CB set:
-Shadow Ball
-Iron Tail
Although it could use Protect (w/o the CB obviously) given how common EQ is in XD...

Sharpedo also works well with CB:
-Reutrn/Double Edge
-Surf (once you can get it)
Again Protect could be helpful since it has no defenses...

Breloom - you evolved it before it got Spore ;_;
-Leech Seed
-Swords Dance
-Sky Uppercut
-Sludge Bomb/Return/Mach Punch... or something like that...

-Screech/Steel Wing (w/ Choice Band)
-Sludge Bomb
-Shadow Ball
-Aerial Ace/dare I say it? Fly is an option since it works like a pseudo-Protect

Duskull/Dusclops - I'd say Will-o-wisp over Confuse Ray is another option since Helping Hand is rather..um...helpful...in 2v2.. especially since Dusclops can probably take its partner's EQ even after Helping Hand

Gardevoir - Calm Mind must stay. Replace Sing (55% acc = yuck) with one of the punches..or at least Hypnosis

Timid/Modest nature (+Satk, -Atk), (+Spd, -Atk)
Trait: Synchronize
- Psychic
- Calm Mind
- Thunderbolt
- Will-O-Wisp/Ice Punch/Fire Punch/Hypnosis

I believe is standard.

Okay, my Duskull is now a Dusclops and on it I've replaced Confuse Ray with Seismic Toss.

Plus I've beat Snattle and snagged Solrock and Starmie, and I can't decide whether I should keep Sharpedo or replace it with Starmie.

What do you think?

Since its XD i wont get into the natures ;279;
Gardevoir keep the Calm Mind, i would add Dream Eater somewhere

20th December 2006, 12:46 AM
replace Sharpedo with Starmie too
SHarpedo will fall OHKO to a Brick Break
and Starmie has more possible moves

Wtf, Dream Eater? NO WAY.

On Gardevoir, Sing fails compared to Hypnosis. Get it please.

Starmie >>>>>>> Sharpedo

Flareon kinda sucks as a sweeper. Get Houndour or Growlithe...also Moltres is awesome in XD with Morning Sun and Will-o-wisp.

Flareon rocks! I got an EndFlail one today in Battle Factory...I would've won if the Swampert didn't have counter <.<

Uh, no Flareon sucks. It's not the worst Fire type (that goes to Magcargo), but it's close to it. All that attack doesn't make up for its slow speed, weak defenses, limited movepool, and incredible number of opponents that totally rape it.

I've replaced Sharpedo with Starmie so I've replaced Gardevoir with Snorlax. Snorlax has a Lax nature and Starmie has a Sassy Nature.

Ice Beam


Double Edge
Shadow Ball

Sorry i'm not familiar with the standard 2v2 moveset but i had great fun with this in the orre colosseum. Generally i just blew up next to a gengar, who also resists eq should i use it.
