    On the rain sweeper debate, Gyarados is by far the best for set up sweepers imo, Bulky Dragon Dance is fantastic. Azumarill would be best for revenge killing and I guess Dnite is good for straight up attacking.
    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!

    Azumarill is an insane Rain sweeper. Priority Aqua Jets in the rain, coming off of a titanic Attack stat? In my experience, that can OHKO Gliscor.

    DNite can also get Aqua Jet, so that could be a suitable ESpeed replacement in the rain.

    Azumaril sounds awesome, but I don't like the fact that it can't do much other than Aqua Jet. I mean, sure, it has the movepool, but not the speed to utilise them.

    No, Aqua Jet has 80. Water moves have their power doubled.

    Rain increases the power of Water-moves by 1.5x. So 40 x 1.5 = 60. McDanger isn't wrong there.

    In a more reasonable sense, it's basically Technician Scizor's Bullet Punch or Technician Breloom's Mach Punch with a different STAB.

    Two things:
    First, on the Dragonite debate, I use a set of:

    Dragonite @Leftovers
    252 SpAtt/ 252 Att/ 4 Spe
    + SpAtt, -Def Nature
    Multiscale
    Thunder
    Hurricane
    Extremespeed
    Superpower

    I find that you never use Aqua Tail/Waterfall, since you can do massive damage to most Pokemon with this set. The lack of power from LO is disconcerting, but considering this set allows you to sponge weak attacks and sand from TTar switch-ins while keeping Multiscale, that's a big plus. This set gives you priority and a great special attacker all in one, plus letting you rip 65% chunks off of Ferrothorn with Superpower. This guy owns.


    Also, I am going to retire my Gen 5 1v1 Ubers team, that I came up with myself and is basically unbeatable, so any of you guys that would like to get to Number 1 in a tier, as well as winning almost any 1v1 Ubers Tournament, add this guy to your list of teams:

    Arceus @Choice Band
    252 HP/ 252 Att/ 4 Spe
    Adamant Nature: (+Att, -SpAtt)
    -Trick
    -Brick Break
    -ExtremeSpeed
    -Shadow Claw

    Basically, you Trick Giratinas, FEAR pokes, and stuff you think will set up that ESpeed doesn't 2HKO.
    ESpeed anything you can 2HKO. Shadow Claw is for Tina and Ghost Arceus, and Brick Break is there to 2HKO Normal Arceus.
    Max HP is almost mandatory to allow you to survive one Darkrai Focus Blast and one Mewtwo Aura Sphere.
    You only lose to Normal Arceus that invest in Def (Brick Break is 99% chance to 2HKO 252/0), and sometimes Darkrai. However, you 2HKO Darkrai with ESpeed, so they need to hit Dark Void, and then Focus Blast, and then Focus Blast again -- and if you only get a one or two turn sleep, you win. So it's like 50-50 odds. Max HP is most important here, since you barely survive Focus Blast + 3 Rounds of Dark Void.

    (17:51:01) ±Porygon: Your rank in Gen 5 1v1 Ubers is 1/4151 [1429 points / 107 battles]! -- I just check 1v1 Ubers as I'm laddering in OU
    (Next guy on the ladder has 1291, so yeah)

    Why are you all failing so hard?
    Rain is +.50 but azumaril gets stab, so + .5 = +1 = 80. Dont forget to add the fact that you have....HUGE POWA' and LO/CB

    Interesting question. I pronounce it like this too.

    If there's any Smogon Youtube Videos, you could watch them and see if anyone on them pronounces the word, I guess then you'd be able to safetly assume they were pronouncing it correctly.
    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!
