never mind it is fine.
Choosing between Water Absorb and Hydration will be tough. Only use Water Absorb if you are sending Vaporeon out with a Pokemon that knows Surf. Otherwise, choose Hydration, because people love to status (especially Toxic) walls in order to slowly kill them off if they can't do it in one or two turns on their own.
As for your EVs, if Vaporeon is a wall, you most certainly do not want ANY EVs in Special Attack. Vaporeon's Defense is terrible, and if you plan on keeping it alive, you need to give it 252 HP/252 Def/4 SpD, with a Bold nature.
Heal Bell is an interesting choice; you're going to have to migrate an Eevee from HG in order to get it, limiting you to only Water Absorb. If you want a status healer on your team, I suppose that is the way to go, and only send out Vaporeon with someone who knows Surf.
I personally would do this:
252 HP/252 Def/4 SpD
Because if it is raining, Vaporeon can use Rest, and Hydration will wake it up immediately. But if you want a healer, don't do that. Keep what you have. But knowing the rest of your team is important before making this decision.
Best 6 pokemon for a fighting type team?

Barring legendaries (because using overpowered legendaries for pure brute force is cheap), you could do something like
Speed Boost Blaziken
Poison Heal Breloom @ Toxic Orb (must know Spore)
Poison Touch Toxicroak
I didn't put a whole lot of thought into who would be doing what here because you haven't said what kind of a team this is. Fighting types seem to lack walls, though, so using Terrakion might be a necessity.
I need a Volcarona check/counter who won't mess up a Volt Turn team's offensive momentum, and can beat it at +1.
No Terrakion, though, since the team I'm using is based around Landorus-T, who plays a similar role.
Oh, and I would prefer that it's not scarfed, since I already have Thundurus-T as revenge killer, but I may take it if there are no other options.
Medicham(Fighting resist) or Breloom.
Keldeo or Virizion.
[CENTER]Goodbye friends. My Pokémon drive is reaching zero, so I'm gonna go do other stuffs. Love you all. c:
Hey guys. So I've been off the Pokemon/SPPF grid for about 3 months and I'm trying to get back up to speed. Anyone mind TL;DRing what's been going on with the competitive scene? Bans, new trends, changes now that BW2 are out?
I have claimed Giratina
^ New tutor moves in BW & W2 have been confirmed. They were leaked about three days ago, but Serebii offers a more comprehensible list of tutor moves now. You'll be seeing better move pools when B2 & W2 come out. Not every Pokemon has much going for them, though.
Is Life Orb Moxie Honchkrow viable in OU? If so, what are good teammates?
Credit to Fairy Witch
Yeah. I tried finding an example RMT for you on Smogon, but it's hard to find a good one. Best step is to find something that can deal with stall, as that sh1ts all over Honchkrow.
Sooo, what exactly does the Enigma Berry do?
As the new Imposter Ditto is released and I started using it, I became rather confused with the mechanics of the transformation. Do the EVs you put on Ditto transfer over to the Transformed version of Ditto, or do you copy the exact stats of your opponent?
This signature has been brought to you by Mochi10, thanks a bunch c:
When, where, and for what games was Imposter Ditto released? I can't find any information on this anywhere on Serebii or on teh Googlez, and I would really like one.
From Smogon: "However, Ditto copies the stats of any other Pokemon that it transforms into, so the EVs serve no further purpose. Ditto does not, however, copy the opponent's IVs, so one should make sure that Ditto's IVs are set for the Hidden Power of choice."

I was wondering if anyone knows how targets are selected when using copycat in a double battle.
For example, if Pokemon A uses Spore, and Pokemon B uses Copycat (right after the spore), who will the Copycat target?
Also, is there a chance that Copycat will target your own Pokémon (aka teammate), cause so far I haven't seen it happen yet...
Hope anyone knows >.<
