I was sending a message to you geno but it didnt send for some reason, thanks for the table and stuff, its really good
I said that Honedge could be useful in competitive battling. I didn't say I'd use it, or that I liked it. So there.
I'm actually going to be starting a Platinum runthrough with a friend here on Serebii. Net. That along with my Heracross monotype.
Oh and one more things. I'm going to be at TNTTrustySteve's house tonite so I won't be on as much.

Survivor Cambodia: Second Chance ~ September 23rd
Quagsire is either NU or RU. But it is viable in all tiers. I've seen it in OU before several times.
I'm going to be making a new Skyrim character. So, be prepared for some Skyrimness...
And no one expects it. Here is a set I've used in my BEST OU RAIN TEAM. My team was a straight-out stall (which I actually haven't used in a long time hmm.)
Heres the set:
New Divide (Quagsire) (M) @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
IVs: 30 Atk / 30 Def

Right, may as well start planning this Skyrim character.
I did a Skyrim 'What Race Are You?' quiz/test, which is a Personality Test which in the end tells you what Race you'd be in Skyrim. I'm quite Elvish, with High Elf and Dark Elf traits. But I'm unsure, so I'll do one again. It's... interesting.
Yeah- I'm a cross between a Breton and a Dark Elf. I have a natural intelligence and grasp at things, I'm quite passionate about the things I like, and I can be poetic and flamboyant and everything else when I want to be. That's Breton me anyway. Dunmer/Dark Elf me- people are either interested in what I do, or they're wary of me. I suck at flattery, but I can mix between being centre of attention and slipping into the background when my aspirations are different. But that's it. I'm more Breton than Dark Elf, so it looks like I'll be playing as a Breton. Or I might go 'screw that' and go Dark Elf. I don't know. I'm thinking of Breton (humanoid race).
EDIT: Smogon's apparently back up!

It wrecks when the opponent doesn't have a Grass type.
Smogon's back up. This is brilliant. Now I can proceed to make Competitive teams! What tier... thinking Ubers, maybe OU or RU. Maybe even NU?
I cant remember if ive said this already or not, but if i have i officially overwrite it
The Weather Wraths Tourney will take place next week!
I will post the brackets (kindly made my Geno) on the tourney thread, good luck to all competitors.
I've heard about it. I'll consider it actually. First I want to make my RU team (picked a tier). No, scrap that. I will join this tournament! Eevee, sign me up!
Kingsley (Slowking) @ Leftovers
EVs: 248 HP / 144 Def / 116 SpD
- Slack Off
- Thunder Wave
Slowking and Amoonguss makes the beginning core for my team. Regenerator Cores are something I've always wanted to try, but never got around to doing. Scald is STAB, and has a chance of burning, which cripples some Physical atttackers. Slack Off = free recovery, and stacks with Regenerator. Psyshock was chosen over Fire Blast because I don't intend to be attacking Grass types and Escavalier. Thunder Wave is another way to cripple offensive attackers.
Mushroomz (Amoonguss) @ Black Sludge
EVs: 252 HP / 88 Def / 52 SpA / 116 SpD
- Giga Drain
- Clear Smog
- Stun Spore
Amoonguss becomes part 2 of the Regenerator Core. Between it and Slowking, they can outstall and wreck most teams. I also for whatever reason have an affinity for winning battles through my walls/tanks. Spore = 1 of my opponent's Pokémon out for the game, Giga Drain is STAB and restores health, Clear Smog ruins set up sweepers that may try and set up on Amoonguss, and Stun Spore, like Thunder Wave on Slowking, just cripples anything stupid enough to try and outspeed and KO Amoonguss.

I think after this current weather tourney we should do a word tourney. I will be in charge of it if you guys want. Let me know what you think! Maybe have the first round be a 4 letter word, second round would be a 5 letter word, and the final round could be a 6 letter word. I can change things around if need be.
Or a number tourney could be really cool! Like the person who is in charge of the tourney ( I could do that cuz I kind of want to host a tourney ) can randomly pick six numbers corresponding to six pokemon and you have to use those pokemon on your team.

Found: Route 12
Method: Chain Fishing
Date of Catch: 2/14/14
Currently Hunting: Eevee, Ekans, Skourpi
Total Shinies: 10
3DS FC: 5429-6844-5288
Ice FS: Bergmite, Spheal and Lapras
And Snivy, add add a bit more Physically Defensive bulky Pokemon into your team because your core mainly leans onto Specially Defensive. (this is why I use Specially Defensive Slowking paired up with the closest thing we have to a physical Blissey: Tangrowth. Both have access to Regenerator)

Anyway, let's not discuss tourney stuffz now.
What could a Dunsparce evo offer to be a competitively decent Pokémon? What moves or new battle mechanics could be implemented to aid Eviolite Dunsparce?
Dunsparce is already a competitive beast?
A team of Metapod, Dunsparce, Feebas, Magikarp, Kakuna, and Wurmple is so overpowered.
Ok, kind of not what we were talking about, but I think Weavile should in fact still be OU (he was in gen IV and is now in UU).
He gets two great STAB moves in Ice Punch and Ice Shard. Ice Punch evading Protect and Detect, and Ice Shard being a good priority move. Also, he comes with Low Kick which allows him to topple big threats such as Tyranitar. If he had Sucker Punch, he would be set!
Yeah, but weavile is really underpowered even in the UU metagame.
Plus, stealth rock, terrakion, rain, sun, sand, scizor and such. Not sure how ice punch evades protect, and Low kick is really only useful for tyranitar. Not much heavy weak to rock pokemon in OU.
Considering that even in UU he's not broken, I sincerely doubt Weavile will be OU.
GUYS MAGIKARP JOKES WERE NEVER AND WILL NEVER BE FUNNY
Really Icarus? I've used one on my OU team and it turned out to be my star, along with Durant. He has fantastic attack and speed.
75 is too low for a main stab.
Anyway, Smogon will never agree to making weavile OU because
a) weakness to stealth rock
b) low BP stab moves
d) Weak to common priority moves
Sure, you can use it, but it won't ever be a top-tier threat.
I LOVE MAGIKARP JOKES
I don't think he will ever be OU either, but you have to remember, tiers are based off USAGE, not potential. And if he gets a swords dance off from a switch, he's an absolute monster. Night Slash hits remarkably hard even without a boost. And actually, for Terrakion:
252 Atk Life Orb Weavile Low Kick (120 BP) vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Terrakion: 354-416 (109.25 - 128.39%) -- guaranteed OHKO
