    Sounds like something I would say when I was 9. That really was my strategy back in the old days. Of course, doesn't work quite as well nowadays.

    When I started, all I cared for was tanking hits and hitting back hard. But then again, that could still work today.

    Also, hitting hard and fast actually does work, but it just needs set up moves like Swords Dance or Dragon Dance. Or you could do a choice scarfed Moxie Gyarados/Salamence.

    Annoy and Surprise the Opponent.

    Just for example, I use a Wigglytuff with Counter and it usually works, and I use an Toxic-Stall Umbreon. Though, that Umbreon is outdated, as I used him most on the 3rd-gen Battle Frontier scene.
    Have you heard of a SNES game called "Tetris Attack"? It's possibly my favourite game of all time.

    Have you heard of a popular Series Called "Pokemon"? It's possibly my favourite Series of all time.

    Oh wait... That's most likely what you're here about.

    I have more of an offensive style of battling. Always have. I run into trouble when I find a pokemon with really good defense, though. I like sweepers. Hit 'em hard and fast, and don't give them a chance to hit back.

    You know what not to do.

    I've been playing volt turn lately. Not as good as my balanced team, but whatever. It took that team a long time to reach what it is. My team building skills aren't the greatest, so it takes me a while to make a good one.

    I would say balanced or bulky offense are my playstyles. My teambuilding experience is far from decent, so I 'run into a wall' a lot, meaning I struggle here and there. Well, I'm trying to improve (guess we all do)

    I like having 3-4 bulky, defensive pokemon (who can set up hazards, weather, and do other support things), 0-1 utility pokemon that can do something unique to almost guarantee a KO (like Mamoswine with Endeavor and Ice Shard that holds Focus Sash) and can serve as a lead often and then have 2 speedy sweepers (1 physical, 1 Special).

    Unfourtunetly, I can't have my old team from Platinum I always did good with because I can't transfer them over. But right now, my team is still more offense oriented.

    I roll with status change (speaking of Double battling), then I go by the offensive. If things aren't going well, I switch to support. But most of my supporters are Defensive with very few offensive capabilities.

    Half the people here dunno what hyper offense is :/

    Well, right now I am experimenting with weather teams, I am finding some of them fun and others a bit boring. Feraligatr is probably my favourite rain sweeper now after it OHKOd a skarm at +2 in rain.

    Hyper offense is using similar sweepers to break down the same walls. Its a very vague concept. It could be 6 Choice Banders, 6 setup sweepers, dual screen lead + 5 set sweepers or even just 6 hard hitting offensive pokes. Most people either don't understand the concept or they think their particular view of HO is the only one.

    What about 6 specs? I know chansey is a pain... maybe with keldeo and his sacred sword it would be more possible I know physical is less a deal because U-turn can't be walled

    I used to follow Sun Tsu's teachings. "One defends when his strength is inadaquate, he attacks when it is abundant." AKA, heavy offense. I've started using stall and balance now and I'm liking it.

    I've been thinking about trying Bulky Offense. With boosting pokemon like Bulky D-nite, Bulky Scizor, Bulky Volca. Soon i'll be able to test it out and see how i like it.

    Not all bulky offensive pokemon have to be stat boosters you know. There is always the Vaporeon rain tank, for example. Also the infamous Jirachi.

    I prefer Stall teams with a sweeper to clean up the mess at the end. I've been playing a Toxic Stall team recently that finishes with DDNite and I'm loving it.
