    The "best" accuracy boosting item is the Zoom Lens which increases accuracy by 20% but you have to move last to get that boost, the Wide Lens always boosts 10% accuracy so in this case were Venasaur is going to abuse Sun I would use Wide Lens

    For Venusaur, I'd just deal with the somewhat mediocre accuracy, and give it a item it can abuse more effectively, such as a Life Orb, or Leftovers.

    Sorry for asking so many questions... But if I am trying to raise a bulky Togekiss, which should I choose?
    Bold
    Modest
    Timid
    If it helps, this will be it's moveset.
    Roost
    Nasty Plot
    Air Slash
    Aura Sphere
    ...with lots of bacon and happiness!

    I have a challenge for skilled team-builders: Is there any one out there that can build a team using both Latios and Latias (Soul Dew is allowed)? If so, it would be much appreciated.
    There was a party of mathematical functions. All of the famous functions were there. Some of them decided to hang out together, such as sine, cosine, tangent, and secant, but there was only one function all alone.
    ix^2 went over to talk to the lonesome function and asked him why he didn't integrate himself. The function replied, "I could, but it wouldn't make any difference. I'm e^x."

    Try this one:
    Houndoom (Hasty/Naive) @Petaya Berry Life Orb
    100 Atk HP/ 184 SpA / 224 Spe
    ~ Substitute
    ~ Sucker Punch Nasty Plot
    ~ Fire Blast
    ~ Dark Pulse
    Options in yellow are if you should decide not to use a Petaya Berry, since it isn't one of the best items.

    I would just go for timid, the extra speed boost might make you fast enough for a needed roost you otherwise might not have

    I really like the first one here. Would that be good? This moveset is from 4th Gen, so if anyone else thinks they have a better anti-lead Sceptile set...

    Use the unburden gem sets... Something like

    sceptile @ grass gem
    adamant/jolly
    unburden
    252 Att | 252 speed | 4 HP
    -leaf blade
    -earthquake
    -rock slide
    -swords dance

    something along these lines. And hitmonlee can abuse unburden with ease since he has access to fake out + normal gem.

    Hi! I'm new to this competitive battle thing and I just started doing WIFI battles on my DS recently and looking at some of the competitive rules on the forums, I've read that Blaziken and Garchomp are banned and wanted to know why?

    Those are kinda 2 of my strongest pokemon, so I was just wondering why they banned them.

    Also, would a team with Wobbuffet, Snorlax, Milotic and Blissley would be good for double battles?

    My current team is formed mostly of speed glass cannons, but I want to try a team composed of bulky pokemon just for fun.

    I'm still learning, so I hope my questions aren't that dumb. XD

    Blaziken and Garchomp are banned for being completely broken and are put in the Uber tier for such a reason.

    Garchomp was banned in part because of his incredible power paired with Sand Veil. So few things could switch in on Garchomp, but what pushed him over the edge to broken was Sand Veil. Its not uncommon to watch Garchomp laugh in the face of Ice Beams that just won't hit. He easily destroys pretty much everything with Swords Dance / Earthquake / Outrage / fire move.

    Blaziken was banned because of Flare Blitz / Hi Jump Kick / Protect / Swords Dance utterly destroying nearly every single possible switch in. Even worse in sun! Even things like Gyarados / Salamence were OHKOed by +2 Hi Jump Kick.

    Also, would a team with Wobbuffet, Snorlax, Milotic and Blissley would be good for double battles?

    Snorlax is ok but the rest of them suck in doubles. I don't have much advice to give because I'm lazy.. maybe one of the Video Game Championship people here will help you!

    It's about how many things can switch into another pokemon's attacks and still KO it. Speed Boost Blaziken becomes faster than pretty much everything else and has the power to wipe full teams that don't have someone with Aqua Jest or Slowbro. Garchomp is faster than most Dragons that want to switch into a Ground attack (they would be hit by a Dragon attack) and Steels that want to switch into a Dragon attack (they would be killed by Ground attacks). Things faster than it like Starmie and Froslass are pretty frail and are unlikely to survive after switching.

    I wouldn't recommend Wobby for Doubles because it will have trouble guessing if it should use Counter or Mirror Coat because of the dual opponents. Snorlax might qualify with Rock Slide, Milotic with Surf, but Blissey seems a little unnecessary. Most Doubles strategies revolve around using attacks that hit multiple pokemon, like Surf, Earthquake, Rock Slide, and Heat Wave.

    Thanks a lot guys!

    I see now... now I know why my Blaziken was steamrolling pokes in double battles with Sunny Day. xD
    As for Garchomp, I've never used him with sandstorm online but I can see the power of that if done correctly. O_O

    Oh well, I'll try breeding some of them and try different combinations to see what I come up with, thanks again for all the help!

    Right now I'm constructing my first BPing team, and I can't decide whether between Belly Dance/Ingrain/Spider Web on my smeargle. Spore and BP are a must on the set.

    I'm thinking of actually putting two smeargles on my team, would that be a bad idea?

    Species clause would prevent the use of two smeargles, and it's a standard rule.

    Anyway, if it's a baton pass chain, attack boost are better off from pokemon like Gliscor who can take a few hits, or ninjask who can boost other stats at the same time.

    I'd give Smeargle Dragon Dance, Substitute, or Rock Polish.

    Not a single BP chain I've fought has used spider web or mean look this gen, as they can't be baton passed anymore, so don't use that.

    Ohh, I completely forgot about species clause.

    But thanks lol.

    I'm conflicted.

    Is it true a Pokemon who only had 1 ability in Gen 3 has a 50% chance of getting it's secondary ability if it got one in gen 4 through Evolution?

    If so, then it should be 50% possible to get an ExtremeSpeed Gluttony Linoone right?

    I've been told yes and no.

    From what I read, yes.
    From what I understand, even the Pokemon that has one ability can still be set with ability 0 (first ability) and ability 1 (second ability), of course it doesn't matter for Pokemon that has one ability. After sending it to the new games, the game updates it when the Pokemon evolve.
    If this wasnt true, then the Machamp with Mimic and No Guards that I have seen are hacks since Mimic is a FireRed/LeafGreen move tutor and No Guard is a new ability in Gen4.

    This is a signature.

    That is Ran.

    Yeah, it's true.

    I've got a magic guard Clefable with seismic toss and softboiled on my SS game. I taught it those moves myself as well.

    Are Smogon's EV spreads formulated with the assumption that the Pokemon you are using has flawless IVs?

    I want to make sure my Vaporeon has equal defensive stats. It has 31 Defense IVs, but only 16 in Special Defense, so I need to know if I need to shift some of the Defense IVs into Special Defense.

    Yes, they assume all IVs are flawless. However, they often suggest Hidden Powers that involve using 30s, but with the exception of Speed it's not that dramatic unless there's some move you got to be able to absorb. A few times though they recommend 0 speed IVs for Trick Room and Gyro Ball users, but they're clearly marked.

    Keep in mind they're usually used in simulators, and if given the option no battler would stick to random IVs.
