    Hmmmm, yeah I didn't see that, if you do go with that snivy, i think if brave bird doesnt OHKO, talonflame would probably be knocked out in that same turn, depending on the move.
    Brave bird's x and y animation is so awesome though!

    We are really active like this actually, also I have nothing interesting to post la di da!
    we should sort out the sub sectors, i can make some banners.

    I think the Speed investment allows it to outspeed postitive natured base 100s, like Jirachi and Mew (when they're released), but also provide some nice bulk to Talonflame. I don't know. I could run max Speed max Attack, but I'm not boosting. Boosting and U- Turn don't work. I could go without U- Turn and run SD... wouldn't matter much in the long run.

    I mean I actually don't know whatever you think is best is probably best because you are like the best competitiver in the clan (I dont think I know everyone in the clan so don't hold me to that!).
    Also whats SD?

    I might go on showdown in a while, if its back up because I heard it was down. I haven't been on for a while, I need to get my touch for randoms back.

    SD = Swords Dance. And I think Yveltal is better than me

    Anyway, I've watched other people's way of making a team, and I think they don't consider their teams weaknesses. Which is annoying. I'll run a Bulky Excadrill as my third member- it spins, sets up and SD and has QuakeSlide, or I could run Iron Head to beat Fairy Pokémon. Water is countered by Heliolisk, Ground by Talonflame, Fighting by Talonflame. I want another Fighting and Ground check, as well as a possible Water one. Maybe Gengar (Mega) and Rotom- W... so many options. Last I'd need entry hazard(s), so maybe a Smeargle.

    So:
    SD Talonflame
    Specs Heliolisk
    SD Excadrill
    Mega Gengar
    Bulky Rotom- W
    Smeargle lead

    It could work.

    I mean, idk because I am the worst team builder in the whole clan, which is why I like random battles because you don't have to build a team.
    BUT HEY, THEY WENT AND GOT RID OF IT!!!!! Well done showdown, I applaud you *sarcastic clapping* I guess i have to build a team now.........
    Im gonna brainstorm Ideas for my team on showdwon now just because

    Not ingame, but I'm pretty sure you can still use it on PS.

    I'm trying to chain a Klefki or a Phantump. I love Klefki, and Phantump has an awesome shiny form. (Or at least its evolution does)

    Yeah, but he's been talking about breeding his team every post, so I assumed it wouldn't be on Showdown.

    EDIT: By the way, those rank banners for our sectors are awesome. Why is no-one using them in their sig?

    I have access to a Bulletproof Quilladin. I can breed one for you, or catch you one.

    Right, must plan myself a WiFi team. Hmm... I've always liked Alakazam, and I spent ages once trying to evolve a Kadabra (no idea how to trade :/). It seems like a good Pokémon to add to my team.

    Alright think I finally have the breeding subsector set up, PM me if you are applying. Other than that back to breeding and waiting for someone to trade me a Yveltal, lol.

    Yep. Alakazam has a weakness to Bug, Dark and Ghost. So I need a Bug, Dark and Ghost counter.

    As long as I can join the competitive sector as well, I'll join. I have 5 IV Klefki and Dratini that I can breed. Pretty soon I should have similar Joltik and Fletching.

    Scizor could work, since he resists two of those and can hit back with superpower/bug bite/pursuit.

    It resists Bug, but not Dark or Ghost (Steels got redone, so no longer Ghost/Dark resist ). Scizor could work though- Pursuit trap (I know, it's weak, but good if you predict) Ghosts who fear Scizor (should there be any) and beat everything else up with Bullet Punch and U- Turn. It could work. I might make Scizor my main, and leave Alakazam. I don't know.

    Might use a Sandstorm team. The nerf to weather is annoying, but it can still be pulled off. Bulky TTar, alongside some other Pokémon, could work.

    Tyranitar has weaknesses to Fighting, Water, Grass, Ground, Steel, Bug and Fairy. A ton of weaknesses.

    *cough8theyareuserbars*cough* they are pretty awesome, and I think we should use them. Also if they're awesome why aren't you using one? If you are wondering I'm not using one because my signature is already too big :X

    Oh! sorry! I didn't know, you don't actually need the code, you can just copy and paste it by highlighting the image and right clicking.
    EDIT: highlight, right click then choose 'copy image address'

    I don't even have a team. This is WiFi as well. Hit me with your best shot.

    I think I will actually go with this Sandstorm team. Tyranitar or Hippowdon though? TTar checks the load of Psychics in the tier, and is more offensive. Hippo checks Aegislash and Talonflame and other powerful Physical attackers- I think it can even beat Mega Gengar 1 v 1 (I think, don't hold me to it). So who do I pick? Probably TTar, as although it has more weaknesses it suits me better I guess. But there are other options for a general team I'd like to consider.
