    And we mainly use PS, which is just a Smogon version of PO.
    We need more Wi-Fi players once sixth gen comes out. I will then apply as an EV trainer to help train everyone's Pokémon at that point. If I can migrate my perfect IV Ditto, then I will also apply as a breeder.

    @Geno I dunno, just thought there'd be an interesting contrast. Go for a darker colour when you paint the fence though. Maybe a red or something. Yellow is a crap colour

    I'm thinking about opening my W2 (which I've kept in package since I bought it a few days after release) and doing a monotype run. Does anyone want to start their B/W 2 again and join me?

    I only just stepped into Virbank in my Black 2. I'll do a run with you.

    I'll also do Platinum with you since I got to training in the Oreburgh Mines and got bored.

    @Andrew: I agree. Competitive battle preparation is tedious and sometimes intimidating! However, your hard work pays off so much!
    Here are some guidelines
    First, know all of the terms of Pokémon in competitive battling. These can include
    Offensive:
    -Physical/Special Attacker (offensive Pokémon with either all physical moves or special moves, mainly requires Pokémon high in Speed as well)
    -Mixed Attacker (has good Attack and Sp.Attack along with a great mixed movepool, Speed also quite necessary)
    -(Physical/Special) Tank (high in Attack/Sp.Attack and/or Defense/Sp.Defense with a good offensive movepool, Speed is necessary, but working on defenses is still priority)
    -Bulky Attacker (similar high offense and defense, can provide more hits than most attackers)
    -Glass Cannon/All-Out Attacker (attacks other team with no intention to play safe. Low defenses, high offense, good-high speed, and decent-good HP)
    -SubPunch (refers to Pokémon with Substitute and Focus Punch)

    Supportive-Defensive:
    -SubSeed (refers to Pokémon with Substitute and Leech Seed)
    -Wall (high defensive qualities, HP training is necessary, may not have too many attacks but makes up for it with keeping the opponent at bay)
    -DualScreens (refers to Walls that raise the team's Defense and Sp.Defense with Reflect and Light Screen, attackers can land more hits because the whole team's defenses were raised)
    -Stalls (high HP & Defense/Sp.Defense, uses non-attacking moves to keep the battle from progressing (hence stall), induces sleep or poisons opponent while staying protected by certain moves)
    -StallBreaker (uses Taunt to keep Stallers from holding up the battle, Stall Pokémon with four non-attacking moves will result in Struggle, can attack and faint a Stall) (stallbreakers are really more supportive than offensive)
    -Passers (Pokémon who use Baton Pass after raising their own stats and pass the increase to the next Pokémon)
    -Support (provides good support to other members by helping them recover HP or induce status conditions that may activate the other Pokémon's ability)

    These are general battle roles that can be used in really effective ways. DualScreen Pokémon can give good support to Tanks and Attackers in general.

    If you need to find Pokémon that can give you Effort Values, you can check the main site in the Game Mechanics section.
    Funny how in Smogon someone made a bird-based Ubers team. I'll post the link here later.

    And Eevee, wanna do a battle right now on PS? My username is justinjiaxinghu

    I have no idea about team building, I just train pokemon, breed them with the moves I want, and then set a team to counter each others weakness. I had one team where I had every type covered against.

    I once tried that, but I didn't know about IVs or EVs so it didn't matter if my Pokémon had type advantages/type coverage or better moves. They lost out of pure lack of training or imbalance in EVs and incorrect natures.

    That's about right. Now you just have to make sure you don't have a team of 6 sweepers; You want some support as well. Stealth rocks, maybe a rapid spinner.

    I think I have a pretty good PO team now, but I can't really tell. Also, do battles won against non guild members count towards BP?

    I'm glad it's not just me who doesn't know every single type matchup like the back of my hand... I've made so many mistakes on PO, even did a ghost type attack against a normal once, because I wasn't thinking >.<

    I've done that before too sadly.... I have also tried ice on a water type. But I guess there is always a chance that we could pull an Ash Ketchum and use electricity on an Onix and be super effective XD

    I know about IV's and EV's, but I don't bother with IV's, too much. I can ev train pretty well.

    And yeah, I'll use something likeninjask for speed then the move that switches pokemon and stats, and send in Aggrom with a new higher speed

    Aggron is even better if it has Autotomize, but only use it after you've swept with it, and that's only after you've B-Passed the speed increase from Ninjask.

    Just wasted about half-an-hour trying to breed for a Gothita with Shadow Tag before realising it was its Dream World ability only... ah, well, could've been longer...

    I feel so sorry for you! The opposite happened to me. I thought this Pokémon had a Dream World ability and searched everywhere for it. When I looked back on the main site, I found it was just a normal ability and I could breed for the ability.

    I memorized the type matchups a long time ago, when I read my pokemon guidebook for hours on end.
    I probably know most of a pokemon's movepools, abilities, and such. :/ I'm such a nerd.

    Also, male gothorita is weird.

    I pretty much did the same thing, except I just studied the type chart and decided to learn everything and learn of what type combinations would be best.
    For example, a mon with no weaknesses would be a dark/poison with levitate, and another one with minimal weaknesses would be steel/poison with levitate (only one weakness to fire)
    Also a good type combo offensively would be a ghost/fighting mon with scrappy. It's STAB combination would be unresisted by any mon.

    Same here. I've picked it up over my short-ish time playing Pokemon.
