Not bad at all. One slight hiccup though, as a special sweeper it's unlikely recover can be put to its full potential. I suggest Ice beam as its another good sweeping move.

I assume this is ingame because ofwhat you said about finally EV training. Ice Beam over Psychic, Psychic doesn't cover anything in special, whileIce Beam will give you the ever cool Boltbeam

^Standard Starmie needs Recover. It can actually use it well with the correct Effort Values put in.

By the way, Starmie needs a Timid Nature, with 237 EVs in HP, 145 EVs in Speed, and 128 EVs in Special Attack.

OK i think i'll do that. I was a bit uneasy about Psychic myself.

A Boltbeamer is better IMO , Change Psychic to Ice Beam

Give us the actual stats, I think. I've said it before and I'll say it again, EVs tell us jack all about in-game Pokemon. There could be a 30 stat-point difference.

wow, Guy, you're my favorite newb ever (not meant to be an insult)

Every other newb who makes these kind of threads always complain about something one, or another.

*petitions this to be stickied so other newbs know how to act and not get flamed*
