    Technically Heat Wave, Flamethrower, and Fire Blast are stronger stabs than Fiery Dance. Bug Buzz is even stronger than Fiery Dance. The only difference is you can rasie your SpAtk but you can do that with Quiver Dance while raising your Speed and Sp Def. Bug Buzz can also lower your opponent's SpDef.

    If you want something really good for a Rain Team use a Multiscale Dragonite to replace your Uber if Tornadus/Thundurus is still an Uber. Dragonite can abuse Thunder and Hurricane. Unless you already have one. Or you could have a Ferrothorn. The only benefit it gets from the rain though is lower damage from Fire moves. Still pretty good since he's a pretty good wall and can be a tank?

    Pardon my post but I have a question: Which pokemon can counter the duo Gyarados and Jolteon? Because, I'm trying to build a team to support them.

However, when I left off, Thundurus was simply on watch, and now that I'm playing again it's an uber.

    I'd like to have a team eligible for OU, so what would be a good replacement for Thundurus?
    I would use a specs Jellicent, but thats just me.


    I have found true bliss. It has been staring at me for eight years. Only recently have i welcomed it into my arms.

    Ferrothorn, as long as it has Power Whip. It'll struggle a bit with Substitute/DD Gyarados, though, I'm still able to take them one on one with my Ferrothorn.

    Would that take a choice specs thunder in the rain?

    Well just Volt Turn into something with a fire move like DW Niodking with LO. Use Flamethrower. Use whatever you want that has a fire move because it counters Ferrothorn REALLY well.

    Magnezone can come in on Ferrothorn, use Substitute, and start firing off Charge Beams to get to +6 while Ferrothorn can't do a thing thanks to magnet pull. I personally use a bulky swords dance scizor, which can make up for Ferrothorn's leech seed with roost, get to +6, and KO with bug bite. Of course, just about anything with a powerful fire move can take it down. Infernape, Hydriegon, or like Serpentine said, Nidoking.

    I am a noob to EV training, so I had a question about the power bracer. If I use it for my Garchomp, which I am building for attack and speed, will I be able to regain the 50% speed stat that I lost for the item? Or should I just go oldskool and not use the bracer?
    Thanks.

    Rest assured, it halves speed until you take item off/change it.

    So the Speed ev trainig I have already done will drop as I gain attack EVs with the power bracer equipped? or will the gainig any more speed ev would be cut in half? I really hope it is the latter.

    No, the speed EVs will not drop, it'll just pretend it's speed is only half of what it usually is. Let's say a pokemon has 100 speed. If it's holding the macho brace or another item of that sort, it'll still say 100, but it'll act like the number is 50 in battle. As soon as you remove it, it'll act like 100 in battle once again.

    It has nothing to do with speed EVs, otherwise the power anklet would be counter productive.

    I have been looking for it for a while, and I cannot find this one thing.

    I need help finding the "banned Pokemon" list and the rules to Championship Tournaments. Preferably on the Pokemon.com website itself, because I cannot find it anywhere on there, or on Serebii.net either.

    Please help.

    Are you completely sure that these are the only banned Pokemon for the current organized play for the VG?

    In summary, it's any Legendary pokemon with a massive BST similar too Mewtwo's or any event only pokemon except Zoroark.

    I don't think I missed any. I may be wrong about Dark Void, but better safe then sorry.

    Don't worry, it's allowed. I'm certain of that.

    As for my question...

    I've been working on a bulky offense team. So far, I've got CM Latias/Specially Defensive Jirachi/Slowbro Tank/Status Orb Conkeldurr. Which OU pokemon is this team weak too? I don't mean by synergy, I mean the pokemon in specific.

    I'd say this team is slightly weak to Reuniclus or Volcarona.
    Witness the truly awesome power of my claimed Gyarados.

    Gyarados used Epic Awesomeness!
    It's super effective!
    The foe lost OVER 9000% of its health!

    Okay, I was reading how to counter Reuniclus, and all it listed for the Trick Room sets was Scizor and Blissy.

    So, does it actually have any counters other then Scizor or Blissy? BTW, a tank of some sort would be preferred. Same with one that can handle Terrakion at the same time, but that's not necessary.

    Edit: A check would be fine, too.

    Spiritomb is usually a solid counter to reuniclus, as it's immune to both Focus Blast and Psychic.

    I meant to say trick room. I don't care about calm mind, I've already got ways around that.

    I guess I should of emphasized that I was only looking for offensive trick room set counters more, I left it pretty easy to overlook.
