    Oh gawsh nooo!!! I just spent 7 hours breeding for the Togepi with Nasty Plot, Bold nature, and Serene Grace, but I can't find a way to make it learn Roost in Gen V. Someone help me out now!

    EDIT: Agggghhhhhhh! Alright, I'll try something in 4th gen... Btw, I chose Bold because it is going to be a bulky Toge.
    ...with lots of bacon and happiness!

    It simply can't learn Roost in 5th gen. It needs to come from 4th gen. And when you breed it in 4th gen (if you do), go for a Timid nature.

    And as for Ubers, Kyogre, Extremekiller Arceus, stall, Mewtwo.

    Excadrill+Tyranitar, Politoed+Swift Swim, Dark, Dragon, and Psychic moves dominate the metagame.

    Why would you use Politoed in ubers when you can just use Kyogre?

    Man, I want to go back in time to 2007, sign up on Smogon or here or wherever, and tell everyone that in just three short years, Politoed is not just going to be usable in ubers, it's going to be a staple. That'd be awesome. XD

    My team involes a lot of switching, and I was wondering if I should have two rapid spiners. I have starmie, who is frail, and sometimes goes down before it can spin.

    This is kind of an opinion question, so multiple people could answer if they would like...
    Would you find it wierd only using Unova Pokemon on a competitive team? (OU)

    It's called mono-region, where you use pokemon from only one region.

    Pokemon from one region can be viable in standard OU.

    Nope, it keeps all of the previous ev's.

    Pretty sure I've seen this before...

    I don't think it would be weird, but it would be limiting you severely. You wouldn't have any weather inducers for one. Not my cup of tea.

    Sorry but I want to add that while yes it's true your options are limited that shouldn't discourage you, if you can pla well your team will succeed, I can say this because I did a Doubles team only with Unova Pokemon (After VGC 2011) and it does extreamly well, it counters most of commons teams and threaths, so just try it if you want to with a little creativity you can make a succesful team

    Got an issue with my Gengar I'm raising for VGC...before anyone nails me: this is different from the query posted in the VGC thread.

    I've got 3 spooks, 2 bred in White and a fresh caught pokewalker spook cooling her spooky heels in SS.

    Was leaning towards the W female, but now I have the option of breeding the W male to the SS female and then crossing their (hopefully improved) son on the W female. Wondering what the more experienced breeders would do.

    IV's:

    W female, timid, alert, HP Dragon, IV=20/18-19/15/31/21/31
    W male, timid, dozes, HP Bug, IV=31/20-21/18/21/26/7-8
    SS female, timid, likes to relax, HP=Bug IV=29/1/17/29/26, 28/26

    EV's: 252SA/252Spe/4HP. Role: Special Sweeper
    Moveset: no egg moves, can do all slots via 5th gen TM's/tutors

    Use the one with 31 Spe, or at least breed them using the Power Anklet to get one with 31 Spe.

    My advice...

    Take this one, and give it a Power Anklet. Then go Synchronize for a male, Timid Yamask in Relic Castle; this should honestly take all of about 10 minutes with a Synchronizer, and maybe 30 without one. The Yamask should have Disable as one of its moves, and if it doesn't, you can move tutor it in via Mistralton City. Give the Yamask an Everstone. Breed those two, and you should get a Timid Gastly with 31 IV in Speed, along with the egg move Disable. You also have a good chance of passing that 31 in SpAtk, which would be very desirable.

    Gengar @ Leftovers
    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 SpAtk / 252 Speed / 4 HP
    IVs: 31 Speed and 31 SpAtk
    -Substitute
    -Disable
    -Focus Blast
    -Shadow Ball

    This is the best set Gengar can run nowadays, along with an easy way for you to breed it with the resources you claim to have. All told, this breeding process should take no more than an hour and a half, max.

    ^But they're doing it for the VGC, and that set isn't really good in doubles.
    W female, timid, alert, HP Dragon, IV=20/18-19/15/31/21/31
    W male, timid, dozes, HP Bug, IV=31/20-21/18/21/26/7-8
    SS female, timid, likes to relax, HP=Bug IV=29/1/17/29/26, 28/26
    Use the first, Gengar won't be taking any hits anyway, so bulk won't matter much.

    What would be a good layout for an Anti-Lead Sceptile? (Moves, Ability, EV's, etc)?

    Choice Band band can break a lot of OU's top walls, such as Ferrothorn, T-Tar, Blissey, Jellicent, Skarmory, etc.
    Why I would I use choice scarf if I could instead use Agility (which is actually pretty good btw) and outspeed all of these, plus random scarfed ****? Not to mention I could actually switch moves, and I get a LO boost.
