    Totally corrected.

    I never saw any SpD Gliscors myself, but some crank might run one. Gliscors do run less speed these days, but Meinshao and most of the other answers we thought up don't care about that.

    Yeah, forgot that Latios can BoltBeam. Stupid me. Thanks for correcting me.

    This. Why worry about Gliscor if it's banned at the competitions you're entering?

    Too bad those three forementioned Pokemon aren't OU, so I can't use them well.

    jellicent would be the only option thats both from OU (last time I checked), learns ice beam, and unova. but it only has 70 base D. you might be in trouble vs. a max attack gliscor trying to SD. it might be better to compromise some of your standards if it gives you a better chance of winning

    I have claimed Giratina

    Hi, I have a question regarding Druddigon. What stats should it have and a moveset without the help of trick room, if there's any point running it without trick room anyway?

    It's just barely too slow for a scarf....hm....A bulky careful one could have 358 HP, 216 def, 237sp.def, and 339 attack.

    It sucks without trick room or paralysis support. If you want it outside of trick room, give it teammates such as ferrothorn and chansy to spread thunderwave.

    It does have sucker punch, though.

    Is the use of Defog viable? It removes screens, hazards and lowers evasion.

    So...why are you worried about Gliscor again? Just wondering.

    Not really. Removing screens is nice, but it only removes the entry hazards you set on your opponent's side of the field. At least, it did in Gen 4, and I don't believe that's changed. And considering that standard battles prohibit evasion boosting moves (and many individuals prefer to as well), you won't get to enjoy that effect so much.

    If Defog would remove your opponent's entry hazards instead of yours (which I wish they had changed in the Gen shift), it would be very useful. But unfortunately that's not the case.

    Random Match-Ups, and I choose to use only Unova Pokemon in my team until the third game.

    Unova only AND OU only?

    Yeah, you might as well use the Hydreigon. Just be careful of Ice Fang.

    I think so. I've always found paralysis teams to be fun. I would pull of crazy pokemon that would get their butts kicked otherwise, like confuse ray regigigas and marowak.

    When using a pokemon like that, I'd build the whole team around paralysis. I've only tried it in 4th gen, though.

    What would happen if Shedinja used Belly Drum via Mimic learning? Would it instantly faint or have no HP loss?

    Okay, so, I'm working on a Mandibuzz for my Sandstorm team (with Overcoat, obviously). What would the best nature/EV-spread be for it? The moveset I was thinking of was:

    -Tailwind
    -Swagger
    -Punishment
    -Roost

    Druddigon @ Choice Band
    Ability: Rough Skin | Sheer Force
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spd
    Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
    - Outrage
    - Superpower / Revenge
    - Sucker Punch
    - Earthquake | Rock Slide

    Revenge is only stated here since you're so slow anyway, you don't mind the negative priority and stuff. Also it don't drop stats.

    Mandibuzz @ Leftovers
    Ability: Overcoat
    EVs: 248 HP / 176 Def / 84 Spd
    Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
    - Roost
    - Taunt / Substitute
    - Brave Bird
    - Toxic

    Meh.

    Sheddy will either:
    1) Die instantly or
    2) Belly Drum will fail

    IDK Cuz I've never used it. I do know that you cannot take 0 damage.
    Ignore, thanks.

    When a pokemon with Moody is sent out, does it actually show what stats are affected? ie "Bibarel's Attack was sharply raised!"

    That's what it does on simulators; I didn't know that it was released yet. I have no idea what the game mechanics are for Moody.
