View Full Version : 24/7 The Thunder Will Roll

22nd December 2011, 12:34 PM
I have been playing in-game only since red/blue and I now have the option of playing competitively. I thought maybe a good way to get my feet wet would be with a rain team. Ive always been fond of water types. Im used to being able to get by with whatever random assortment of high level sweepers Im feeling in-game, (scizor, metagross, dragonite, starmie, lucario, slowking) and Iím no good at making supportive or defensive sets, I simply donít know what works well. I need some help with that. Also need help with EVs and I donít really use hold items in-game either but Im not worried about that for now. Please help a brother out, I know the mechanics of the game well but what I lack is experience. Here is what I have planned so far

EVs: Speed-252/ Def-?/SpDef-?/HP-?
