After a Rock Polish boost, how much does 252 sp attack 252 speed Modest Genesect outspeed?
are you allowed to use a blaziken without speed boost in standard play (blaze) and if garchomp is back in OU can it still be used in conjuction with sand veil?

Your signature contained too many images and was too tall. Please read the signature rules before you update it again.
The answer to your second question is also no. When Smogon reintroduced Garchomp to OU, they banned the abilities Sand Veil and Snow Cloak.

RIP Battling Academy, even though I just joined.
Memories are eternal.
Sorry if this question has been asked before, but I've done a fair bit of googling and whatnot but couldn't find an answer, so I'll ask here.
Why does it say ice punch + drain punch on toxicroak is illegal on a lot of websites? Can't you just teach both of them from the move tutors in BW2? Or is it that most of those websites I looked are outdated?
Thank you for the reply!
I was researching builds for Toxicroak and I kept thinking "Ice Punch would be good to fill that last slot!" but it said it was illegal wherever i looked! But now I can rest assured. :P
I'm building an RU team, and right now I have Acrobatics SD Sceptile, LO Galvantula, and Bulk Up Drain Punch bulk spread Gallade. For some reason I am completely stuck; I have no idea who the other 3 should be.

Read this to learn about my journey into the strange realm of pony hypnosis and watch me warp my own mind. Fun! :3
As for breloom, I have never considered it very bulky, but if you want max survivability, put in 252 Ev's into hp and special defense and use a bulk up set. The bulk ups will hopefully make it bulky enough for you, but in all reality breloom is nowhere near bulky IMO
I have something that's been on my mind lately
I have a Terrakion(who doesn't, right?).
The problem is, it's got a brave nature, and I don't know what set to run. Before you ask, no I will not be getting another nature. Please give me some help with this, because I don't play competitively very often, so I'm not too familiar with the top threats.
Again, since I'm a noob, please give me a full set and item.
Sorry if I'm asking too much from you guys!

here), or go for an HP/Attack hybrid of some sort in a sandstorm to hope to tank something, even though Terrakion's better at just outrunning things and smashing their heads in.

That tank set sounds perfect as I run a sandstall team, and 91/90/90 defensive stats aren't too bad. Do you mind posting some sort of moveset? I'm thinking stealth rocks somewhere, and sacred sword and rock slide for attaking moves?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT:maybe taunt too?

anyway, terrakion has fairly poor defensive typing, so i wouldn't use it as a tank-type figure, especially since it has no recovery. its ability to force switches make it a great sr setter, but its main goal is offense and hitting as fast and as hard as possible.
so, weak to 2 of the most prevalent type attacks in the game. no recovery either. its speed is its best bet, so i recommend getting a new terrakion. otherwise, use the smogon link zach provided.
Terrakion @ Choice Band
252 HP/252 Att
Choice Band Terrakion won't usually be in for more then one turn, so the additional attack power from Close Combat definitely makes up for the lowered bulk.
Oh, um, fixed.fixed the link for you zach
Thanks guys! Looks like I'm going to try to find another Terrakion. But I may try one of the above sets anyway.
EDIT: Does anyone have an idea for a replacement for my Terrakion? And no I do not mean another Terrakion.

Infernape is a good fighting type if you just want to hit hard without sweeping. It'll be able escape from situations you can't handle with U-turn rather well, and has fire STAB, which is both rare and useful in OU, to make it an even scarier offensive threat. However, if you want a tank type, Conkeldurr is a pretty good physically defensive pokemon with Bulk Up and Drain Punch, and can actually take a hit unlike the monkey.
