    Yeah, I don't like Venomoth because I hated fighting Koga in Yellow with Venomoth spamming Psychic. Skuntank was my favorite Poison in D/P/Pt but it failed me when I used Drapion. Drapion's definitely not on my Poison team though.

    Drapion's good, though. Great defenses and swords dance.

    Promise me you'll use a Weezing? Or at least a Muk?

    Weezing is a bit frail for my taste. Sleep Powder Amoonguss actually proved useful, and Scolipede tore up their Ludicolo.

    @Icarus use Espeon. Reflects all those nasty statuses and it functions as a anti hazard thingy.

    Am I the only one here who like plays Ubers?

    Weezing is fantastic IMO. He really isn't frail, and can tank most attacks.

    i love ubers.
    I usually run a rain uber team.
    I have recently adopted deoxys onto my uber team (speed, defense, and attack)
    suicide lead speed deoxys is fun

    You need to die....now.



    Just kidding. Drapion is one of my favorite Pokemon plus as Skyler said, its not to shabby with Sqords Dance or as a defensive 'mon. I personally think you should use it. I mean, how much better of a defensive team member can you get than one that can have high defense, attack hard after a Swords Dance AND only have one weakness.

    Drapion would work well with a Swords Dance and/or Agility/Speed Boost passer, maybe as mentioned above Quiver Dance Venomoth, and it could be a valid sweeper if it's used properly. I haven't tried, but it has a decent movepool and needs a little more speed, so I'd guess it would work.

    Why are we talking about Poison types?

    I used to play Ubers, I had a decent team, but I didn't record it anywhere and then I lost it when I updated my PO. I can't remember it really.

    Whoa, great sig, Gamma!

    On topic: in a metagame filled with fast and offensive fir and ground move users, Venomoth and Drapion aren't very viable.
    However, Venomoth sounds like a great passer for, wait for it, Rain! Venomoth and Volcorona (V-Moths, f*** yeah!) can actually be a great buggy team since fire moves are weakened! Venomoth can Quiver Dance, then put opponent to sleep, then Baton Pass the hell outta there onto a stronger special Rain tank/attacker. Volcorona can abuse 100% accurate Hurricanes and pull off STAB Bug Buzz and Giga Drain whilst keeping its Fire moves from being used.

    @Hudson: Lol Drapion (a.k.a Rapeion) is not on my Poison team, but it is on my RU team for sure. Along with mixed att. Crawdaunt.

    Venomoth is amazing in UU. It's speed is like only outclassed by Mienshao, has access to Sleep Powder and Quiver Dance, making it a very efficient passer to Pokemon like Chandelure, Raikou, Roserade, and other strong special attackers that would appreciate the boost.

    IMO I would rather use Volcarona be a sweeper rather than a passer. To me that's just a waste of an amazing stat spread and movepool

    EDIT: nvm I thought you said Volcarona >.<
    Yeah use Venomoth he's the best passer ever
    him and Volbeat depends on your purposes

    Am I the only person who sees that Aerodactyl with Choice Scarf or even just 252 Speed EVs can clobber Venomoth, Chandy, Roserade, and Raikou (Earthquake)?

    Okay, Okay, I'll implement Venomoth into one of my teams! Maybe a viable passer for the many options of passers in a Bug team.

    Aerodactyl is just too frail though and remember, UU has tons of bulky Water types like Suicune, Azumarill, and Blastoise, which Aerodactyl cant touch. Sableye can also just WoW it right off the bat.

    @Justin: true, forgot WoW'ers.

    Good battles Yveltal.
    Sorry, but the page loaded and I thought there was a line across your name again. I panicked so much and almost had heart convlusions from the fact that your absence would destory the tournament, or even the whole world!!!!

    Nah, I just reread it a few times to make sure.

    Hey, join the Secret Story for RPG fun!

    Yes!

    Ohhh my god. Amazing team, Yveltal, I would have such a tough time countering it. But how do you deal with ghosts?

    Good idea. But who would I replace? That's the thing I'm having a hard time about.

    Thundurus-T would be the ideal choice, but I would suggest replacing Reuniclus instead because it doesn't put much offensive pressure on opposing teams. Replacing Thundurus-T would also grant you yet another ghost-type weakness, which would suck.

    Thanks Genesect. I've been trying a few new things in Photoshop. ^_^

    Alternatively, Has a decision been made to start a tourney in PS? I've been out for a couple of days and didn't see anything while skimming recent activity.
