I may visit the channel sometimes, but probably not often.

    So I'll see you all another day. Remember me and my Vespiquen, and good luck! ^.^
    Naww, bye Tyoyo!

Ohwell theyll probably just end up growing onto me. And the legendaries dont look bad at all.
    I would be worried about the quality of the game, but I think that the graphics are looking good and I like the 3D sprites and areas. Hopefully the storyline and Pokeymanz will be just as good...

    Holy crap, that's insane! Hope everything works out...
    EDIT: I have the most battles out of anyone in this clan. Wow, that's depressing.

    Well, I wouldn't say insane...half the kids I know from school live on the reservation, so they don't even have water in the summer. It's just an inconvenience, if anything.

    And the most losses iirc
    Of course, I probably have the worst rating, since I ladder with Baton Pass. So all's fair.

    It would sound creepy to ask where you live, but I must express my confusion at that statement.

    The confusion stemmed from two things:
    1. We still have reservations?
    2. Why is there no water on the reservations?

    ANYWAY. Back to Pokemon-related things.
    Planning: An offensive hazard-stacking team with multiple spinblockers. Currently thinking Gengar and Froslass. Questions, comments, insults, ideas?

    Sorry for my recent absence guys, I've been fairly busy with sport and revision (though the latter didn't really help in the end, but ah well). We've decided on candidates for the next Zircon Leader, so you'll all receive a PM tomorrow with the candidates listed, asking for your votes. Extra details will be sent in the PM.

    I'm fairly sure it's the 15th, perhaps check the post to confirm it though.

    I wouldn't recommend two Spinblockers. One is usually sufficient and if you're having trouble keeping it alive, then go for a bulkier one, such as Jellicent, Misdreavus, Sableye or Dusclops. You'll find that, on these sorts of teams especially, competition for a team slot is quite tough, and if you've got two spin blockers, you may be missing out on something more important. If you still need assurance that your hazards will stay down, make your Spiker/Stealth Rocker a Rocky Helmet Ferrothorn. That way, if anything uses Rapid Spin on it, it'll take a fair bit of damage (about 29% iirc) and if this damage KOs the Spinner, then the spin won't work and your hazards will stay down. It's one of the quirkier, more useful and more annoying mechanics in the game.
    Hey Serebii, how you doing? Not sure how many of you guys from way back are out there, but just to let you know that I'm back, though I'm not sure how regularly I'll be on. Thanks for everything, and I hope I can continue to enjoy my time here!

    Seems pretty legit to me I like both of those ghosts, but I'm not gonna lie I'm more biased towards froslass, but that's just me. I like how they both fit other rolls in the team as well. Froslass can be offensive or hazard stacking, and Gengar is just straight up offensive, so hopefully they make nice synergy with the rest of the team. The only thing I'd be wary of is to be sure to have something that can take ghost type attacks, like mainly Shadow Ball well because neither of them have any bulk really, and being hit by one of those would probably mean insta-death.

    The only thing to consider though is that while 2 may be a tad excessive, they both fill other criteria in the team as well. It's offensive, so Gengar fits in well, and also hazard stacking which Froslass can do. Though touching on this, it would definitely be good to make sure that there's not other pokemon that can do these jobs better or something. Like if, for example, you have a pokemon that sweeps your team, you may want to consider dropping one for a counter, but that's pretty obvious. Good points though~

    I don't really find Froslass all that effective, especially as a spin blocker since it's fairly frail and some easy prediction will land an easy OHKO on it. It's a decent suicide Spike/Destiny Bond lead, but I understand that that only really works in UU. I guess it was decent when Snow Cloak was allowed as an offensive Blizzard-Spamming Spiker. I'd recommend Jellicent as a spin-blocker.

    I like this idea. I will be testing this idea.

    Basically this. Froslass can set up in the face of Forretress, as well as Icy Wind any set-up sweeper (and Sash Cursed Body for the ultra-win against Choiced stuff) along with Destiny Bond. Gengar can dish out the pain and bring Starmie to its knees with Scarf Shadow Ball.
    I'm thinking Gengar > Jirachi on my current team; it fills all the needed roles (Ground immunity, fast Ice attacking, genie killing, spinblocking) and I already have a CM-setter-upper in the form of Reuniclus.

    It works in Ubers too. Google "The Unspinnables" (it's some guy's Ubers team, I've tested and tweaked it, it's great) to see a demonstration. But yes, I see your point. Froslass may be a bit out of place.

    So, I was laddering OUvon showdown, as you do, and accidentally started a battle having selected to battle with my NU Team. I'm fairly pleased with the result, and I thought I'd share it with y'all:

    http://pokemonshowdown.com/replay/oucurrent7632926

    Bearing in mind, as you can see from the ratings at the end, this was like my 5th match so I wasn't that far up the ladder.

    Yep. The natives are free to go if they do want to move out, but a lot of people are just plain stubborn.

    I'm not fully sure of the rules, but from my understanding, only the tribe the land is reserved for is allowed there.
    2. Why is there no water on the reservations?
    You see, I pass through this reservation all the time. These houses aren't all exactly packed together in a neighborhood. They're spread out, so not all of them really have plumbing. I'm not really sure how many of them have plumbing, but I know some kids that took gym class specifically so they could shower.

    Anyway, you guys are right. If there are any more questions, just shoot me up with a PM.
    ANYWAY. Back to Pokemon-related things.

    Volt Turn loves hazards. It's all about forcing foes to swap out, so having 3 layers of spikes could really come in handy.

    Toxic Spikes is less necessary, especially for offense. Don't worry too much about using that.

    Yeah, I know that about the T-Spikes; probably going to go Rocky Helmet Ferrothorn for my Spiker, and Heatran / Jira / TTar / Hippo for my Stealth Rocker.

    Alright, I'll get around to that at some point. Most of the stuff floating around in my head is concepts and ideas, not really anything concrete. I'll probably post my current team (after the Gengar revision) some time this evening.

    Well, my computer officially died today. As in, a virus sneaked into my system and wrecked everything. Good family friends who work at apple lent us one of their macs (they have at least a dozen at home); unfortunately, it's a piece of poop, so I can't really do much on it besides surf the web. So no PO for a while, at least until I get a new laptop.

    Just checking in, not sure when i'll be on PO since christmas break is over, and how did i manage to miss all of you? I wasn't that nocturnal, was I? Anyway, logged on jsut a moment ago befored my compouter started being weird and said error, so ima let windows update and do a virus scan while i play some Assassin's creed, then hopefully get on PO later.

    Question: Is the lost hero still running and is Braviary still eligable? I had a great idea, basically scarf with Thrash, shadow claw, brave bird and U-turn, much like Staraptor's niche.

    Yes, because no one bothered to shut it down. Dunno if Braviary's eligible, though; you'd have to check the December usage stats to find out.
