I sent out starmie because my dragonite (with a neutral speed nature) has been outsprd by a choice starmie after 2 or 3 d dances then ohko'd.
if the opponent was so giddy to switch in something as frail as starmie to threaten your dnite, and you didn't see leftovers recovery, you easily could've inferred it was scarf, which ,depending on the situation you were in, could've been used to switch / boost.
Well, Dragonite would be easier to revenge kill then Exca. If it tries to restore multiscale with roost, it'll likely take another hit. After that, it would take a good Rock/Ice move and a scarf.
Because I was hoping I would be faster after 3 d dances, and I had thunder punch, plus I was new
Baton Pass would be a bit more common, bringing Smeargle, Ninjask, and the like to higher tiers. That said, best if it stays so I continue to obliterate teams in NU with Regigigas (seriously people, it's that good).
Now what if Stealth Rock was a different type? What if Spikes and/or Toxic Spikes hit airborne Pokémon?
Probably more phazing, stall, and rapid spin. Espeon and Starmie would be everywhere.What if Spikes and/or Toxic Spikes hit airborne Pokémon?
A world without SR?? Madre de Dios :I say hello to Speed Boost Yanmega to OU, and Volcarona to Ubers, even if they have some annoying weaknes. Both of them are gonna apreciate the ride iof SR as they're not gonna losse 50% HP everyturn .---.

Visist The Black Sheep Ark, I will always do my best.
How would Volcarona be Ubers? It's still destroyed by any rock moves, walled by the likes of Heatran (who also phases it out) and Jellicent.
Just saying about dnite without stealth rock, we completely forgot about burns/paralysis. A burn would completely kill it; it's attack would be halfed and it's multiscale would be broke every turn. Or paralysis which would half its speed and cause it to miss a few turns
and yep bulky waters are one of the lots of safe switch ins of volcarona with 1 quiver dance scald don't do nothing to him and with stealth rock not there he would have more opportunities that would mean every team would have a choice scarf terrakion or blissey
Stealth rocks is awesome. I actaully don't have it on my team, but i still can deal with nite/volcarona/charazard. Focus sash wouldn't be broken even if SR didn't exist.
New Bible Verse of the Week: Zephaniah 2:3
Seek the Lord, all you humble of the earth who have carried out His ordinances; seek righteousness, seek humility. Perhaps you will be hidden in the day of the Lord’s anger.
Moltres, Articuno, Volcarona, Dragonite and all others with 25% or more weak to SR and decent stats would go up in usage statistics.
Volcarona was 25th for October and made the Uber suspect list
Moltres could possibly make UU (or at least bumped to BL2) but with its shallow movepool Charizard would be the superior Fire/Flyer for most sweeping roles.
Articuno has nothing but Ice and Flying moves however. Still not enough of an incentive to use it.
I have claimed Giratina
