    I'll admit that I mostly play doubles, but anything that can cripple your opponent's poke/s is golden. T-wave, WoW, encore, anything like that is great.

    Also, pro tip, if you opponent has a garchomp on their team, there is a roughly 150% chance that they're gonna use it. It's almost mandatory.

    I played doubles once, with my Gigalith, a lv. 35 Musharna, my Sawsbuck, and my Samurott. They used Cresselia, Metagross, Gyarados, and Zapdos. I lost 4-0. Cresselia used Safeguard, Metagross used EQ. Cresselia used Swagger, it missed. Metagross EQed, Cress had Levitate. Cresselia used Swagger on Metagross, it hit, Atk sharply rose, Safeguard blocked Confusion. Cresselia kept using Swagger on Meta until Safeguard ran out, then he started using Meteor Mash.

    As far as I know, it rejects illegal move sets (such as Porygon-Z with Nasty Plot that isn't Poketransferred), and pokemon with over 510 EVs.

    The Jellicent could have been holding a Choice Scarf.

    No, I'm not giving anyone credit for my team pose because I made it myself.

    Porygon-Z gets NP in BW, just catch a Porygon in White Forest, evolve it, teach it Nasty Plot.

    Also, currently, I've been unable to find an opponent for so long..

    I don't like random match-ups, people always ragequit when they are about to lose and don't let me get the win

    Once my wifi team is done, i'm goning to name all my pokemon,"failsquit" to guilt the opponent into losing if i beat them instead of ragequitting.
    Yep we should ban baton pass, and weather too. Oh and Trick Room, I'm tired of having to worry about Trick Room all the time. Just ban the move Trick Room, and prankster, it's broken. Ban all status moves on prankster users, they're too cheap. Oh and ban Probopass to it's so cheap. Just ban everything except Magikarp with splash.
    Well, actually Blaziken isn't really Uber because some people whined about how they were getting owned by it. I mean, it doesn't stand a chance in the Uber enviroment.

    I don't think they get to see the names of your pokes, and even if they did it would just look like so much gibberish to them, considering most are japanese or some other nationality. I did have someone from the UK ragequit 1 of my slowbro sweeps, so if they do get to see it, maybe it will work...
    I am a child of GOD and proud of it.

    I have only one setting, and thats MAXIMUM PWNAGE!

    You do not get to see any of the nicknames over wifi, all you see is the default name of the Pokémon in the language of your opponent.

    I give up with rated random matchup now. In my last wave of battles. Four out of five people I won against ragequit at some point. My win lose ratio isn't good enough to keep up with rage quitters. sigh

    I like random matchup even though it is extremely broken. Literally every single team has either a latios, tyranitar, or a garchomp. Ugh.

    I hate them. I see broken and banned things all the time. WHY do they allow OHKO moves? I see chomp every 2 battles it is annoying. I also see double teamers. Everytime i see a OHKO move or evasion boosting move i turn my ds off. I want to play fair! Not with a sore loser who relys on ohkos and evasion.

    Yes that is a Female Dino Charge Red. It's a FanFic thing

    it's not smogon...

    if your team is good there should be much problem. and if the OHKO moves give you problems use sturdy or focus sash because barely anyone uses entry hazards. evasion is a problem tho, just kill it as fast as you can

    What's a standard Sand team? I'm using Hippo with SR, SubSD Garchomp, and Specs Latios.

    SR are pretty useless in random since it's only 3 v 3.
    you could use it if you want to cripple focus sash users.
    also i would recommend TTar over Hippowdon and maybe Excadrill over Garchomp since latios is also dragon type and Excadrill has more synergy with Sand than Garchomp.

    The only thing I wish Random Matchup would do is enable 6 on 6 battles instead of 3 on 3.
    They do. You just have to go to the triple/launcher battle section.

    ok. That team is extremely Weavile weak, anyway.

    Is Specs Latios any good on Random Matchup? A free kill from Draco Meteor is very important, since it's 3v3. Or CM Reuniclus?
