i may be wrong about this, but i do not believe the power items have any effect in 5th gen breeding. i thought that was only in hgss(possibly in dppt as well).
@Koos, you also need to factor in patience. Your welcome though
As long as the rules permit them and your team is balanced in someway, having uber Pokemon should be fine. However it should be noted that competitive movesets don't always work as well in game (such as users of SR and rapid spin)
Ou pokemon are considered Ou because of usage statistics. So they are deemed the best (besides uber) by the people who play competitively. Having something not Ou may throw someone off guard and they may not know how to react appropriately
I am reading about trick room in double battles. To reverse trick room effects, you would use trick room yourself?

What is the most powerful Extreme Speed user in UU?

For my future Team:
agreed. a lot of pokemon are way underrated. this is generally due to how it handles though. for example, virizion. now new pokemon are on the rise, it hasn't done well and dropped. does this mean it isn't a threat? no.
i believe staraptor is a fairly good threat, as a banded set really has no counters outside skarmory or donphan.
I want a good set for 2 pokemon
Sun Team Cressalia
Good Sun sweeper thats not in OU
My Sun Team Cresselia has Psychic, Ice Beam, Moonlight, and Toxic.
Psychic for STAB, Ice Beam for coverage, Moonlight for 75% recovery in sun, and Toxic because my Cresselia has EVs for a wall, and it can take a lot of hits, so it's good at poisoning a lot of the opposition.
As for a Sun sweeper not in OU...do you want NU, BL, UU, or Uber? Speed Boost Blaziken is in Uber and it's a good non-legendary sun sweeper.
Offering:~600 of Nat. Dex, Pokerus, DW females, egg move males
Looking for: evolution stones, Power items
Black FC: 2580 3802 6475
Current hunt: : 200 eggs
As for sun sweepers not in OU, as said before, both Arcanine and Sawsbuck are good choices. Sawsbuck has Swords Dance and paired with Chlorophyll it can be something to take into account. Arcanine gets a boosted Morning Sun but if I'm not mistaken you can't run Morning Sun and Close Combat which hinders the dog a little. For a more bulky sweeper, Arcanine may do the trick. Flare Blitz under the sun is as powerful as a super effective Close Combat but it has the recoil. You can drop it for Morning Sun and still be in good hands.
I'd also say to take a look at Typhlosion and at those sun-boosted STAB Eruptions...

I'm going to use a substitute + 3 attacks Jolteon holding a life orb as a sweeper. Should his HP be a number that's divisible by 16 and then just add one to that?
Signature under construction, don't ask
...Unless you're doing a UU battle, or course.
And if you want a really risky option, there is always Solar Powered Choice Scarf Charizard, which one shots just about everything with Fire Blast, but really needs team support to handle anything that can outrun it or resist it's Fire Blast.
I'm trying to make my first competitive team, and so far so good. But, I have a question about ev training. I'm trying to make an Excadrill with the ev spread of 64 HP / 252 A / and 192 Spe. Which stat should i train for first? My drilbur is level 1 and whatever i train for first is going to make it level up with that stat in particular.

I haven't found that....it's just considered uber. http://assets.pokemon.com/assets/cms...nt_formats.pdf
I could be wrong though. Even so, how would i go about it?

On topic of Serebii's Pokemon of the Week (Ditto), do you think it would work well if I used a teammate with Tailwind and U-turn or Volt Switch? If so, who should I use (preferably someone who's slow so they still move second even after Tailwind is put up)? What item should I give Ditto?
