    Nah that isn't a bad idea actually. Make sure you have someone to lay spikes first. Preferably Ferrothorn, so that Roar really does you some good

    That's my problem, I don't want to get rid of anything else for another wall. I don't have enough offense. (or ice type moves)

    Tentacruel *does* have toxic spikes, though.

    Oh okay thanks so much! I have a few ideas for my team

    Psh if he has Toxic Spikes, get rid of Toxic on Heatran and give him either Earth Power or a Fire move, so he can dish out some damage.

    You sure I shouldn't pack toxic for in case Tentacruel gets taken out?

    I guess that decision is up to you, but remember Tentacruel is very bulky, and can lead off with Toxic Spikes with no worries. But, if you are really worried about that, then you could always Sash Tentacruel. Besides, Heatran should be able to do more to defend himself. The only Pokemon that will evade the Spikes is Levitaters and Flying types, which SR will at least deal neutral damage to, and Heatran's fire STAB can take out annoyances like Scizor and Skarmory.

    Haha will do! Thinking about making a team around a Contrary Serperior. Is Smogon still down? Because when I type it into google it doesn't come up

    Contrary Serperior cannot be used yet unless you are in hackmons or custom game

    Figured I would blow the dust off my old Chansey team for a little fun http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/sm...ubles-37780936

    That guy who played Yvetval was... how should I say this... frightfully dullwitted (or just made some bad mistakes ).

    a) aura sphere to a ghost

    b) swords dance when he didn't need it: That guy was pushing it with the second swords dance, but to do it AGAIN (and again after he had full boosts) was a terrible decision.

    Been playing some Fire Emblem SS, and can I say I officially hate critical focused guys.

    Congrats on your 3DS Da Bomb!

    EDIT: Justin, I would recommend something else other than roar for your set: Admittingly, it works, but toxic and roar don't go well together as toxic damage builds up. But if you need something to beat set ups, go for it.

    New Pokemon guys ^_^

    Monorpale
    Type: Steel/Ghost
    This sword Pokémon was first shown in the Japan Expo in France during a special recorded message by Junichi Masuda. It was shown as unsheathing itself in battle from its scabbard

    I'm sorry, but that new Pokémon looks awful. Not even a decent shaped sword. Gah!

    How is everybody anyway?

    What can I say? I have a knack for making surprise entries (although Eevee's known I'd be back soon for a while now). I'd made an edit to my Rain team I posted a while back, which was Dragonite instead of Tornadus. Much better. I was in the 1600's points (unsaved anyway). But now I can't figure the team out! So I'll have to restart. Oh well.

    So what, Yveltal, you want me to make a competitive Speculation post about it?

    Fine, this one will be interesting.

    Hey Genosect. This thing would be the go-to wall, as it's Steel type (good defences) coupled with 3 immunities and a truckload of resistances (Dragon, Ice, Psychic, Rock- to name a few). This would be a fantastic Terrakion check, resisting Rock and being immune to Fighting, threatening with STAB Steel moves. Terrakion would now have to carry... Shadow Claw or Earthquake or something to hit it (can Terrakion learn Shadow Claw?). This would also (hopefully) stop rampaging Dragons or Psychic types, and if it gets Levitate...

    I'm assuming it'll get some other ability though (I'm thinking, Weak Armor, Sturdy, Analytic maybe).

    Weak Armor would be appropriate only because this ability seems like a balancing factor. It is already resistant to many types, so perhaps it could be another Slow Steel type and Weak Armor could provide some balance.
