    It's really disheartening when it's right before a would be epic win.

    With this metagame, the general rule is: if ya can't beat 'em, join 'em.

    Basically, I'm saying that if you go on with your nice, little Smogon-legal team, you'll be at a huge disadvantage to drizzle+swift swim, garchomp etc. So the best way to excel, is to use them yourself.
    Hey Serebii, how you doing? Not sure how many of you guys from way back are out there, but just to let you know that I'm back, though I'm not sure how regularly I'll be on. Thanks for everything, and I hope I can continue to enjoy my time here!

    Ironicly, they only rage quit on me if they have a few wins. If they have none or 1000s, they go to the end.

    random match ups are very challenging for me at least. i can't even count all those loses i had with TT+Garchomb and sun teams ALWAYS give me hard time, and rage quitters are annoying every time i land last hit they disconnect, i could have about 20 wins more .

    today i faced Ninjask bottompassing sword dance, and 3 speed boosts to Choice band Haxarus...oh man that was painful

    I know a guy who knows a guy who battled with a max speed jolly Haxorus and a Golurk that wasn't even carrying anything outsped and killed his whole team. That's what I really dislike about hacking.

    I never liked random Matchup.
    Whenever I battled there was always a team either consisting from the Politoed-Rain Core, Nintales-Drought, or TTar/Hippos-Sandstorm.
    It just shows the domination of weather in 5th Gen.

    is he sure the golurk wasn't a zoroark? cause the random wifi does a really good job at keeping super hacked stats away

    This is very possible, esp b/c your archeops didn't have max speed IVs

    Max speed Archeops: 350, with 31IVspe
    Max speed Jellicent: 240

    Jellicent with scarf: 360

    360>350

    Every time I go on there, I find Sandstorm, sandstorm, and more sandstorm. Next time I go on there, I'm going to use Sun.
