    A brief description of yourself, along with anything else you'd like to mention: As i said, I rarely battle anymore, do to internet issues, as well as losing my wifi game. but, i'd be happy to help people out with their teams and such, as well as team building and theorymonning.

    btw, USAtoday is my main man. as well as Psilo.

    Accepted into Tourmaline, since you agreed to switch to there.

    Well, Tourmaline just got someone, and...

    Might as well put you into Emerald :3
    Welcome to the clan!

    I feel like this is the general mentality for new members. Not sure why .__.

    YES! YES! DEAR GOD, YES! HE WANTS TO JOIN CITRINE! YES! Accepted into Citrine

    This actually works fantastically well; every division just got a new member within the past day or so.
    Welcome to the clan everybody!

    EDIT: Lol, I just realized most of Citrine's active members are Warriors.
    What he said for houses. Tenta won't do well against sect unless rain/protect, or sect has no sp atk boost.

    Is there really a solid counter for Latios outside of Ttar?? And I mean a counter, like can switch in on the worst possible move and force it out/KO it first. None of this 'it can switch in on a not-very-effective move' stuff that you guys like to pull. So no Scizor or Scarf Gene nonsense. Something that can switch in, take the hit and force it out/KO it back first.

    Remembering that Latios can run Scarf, Specs, Life Orb and pretty much every Special move under the sun + Psyshock.

    i saw that thread, and wondered what they were thinking. the only on that can possibly have any brokenness, needing a suspect test, is thunderus-t, maybe. its still easily revenge killed, and walled by common pokemon quite well. its devasted by sand teams period, especially tyranitar pursuit trapping and gastrodon if lacking grass knot.

    honestly, the only set i think is threatening at all is its nasty plot set.

    genesect....its a great revenge killer, but rarely does it sweep teams. nothing much to say here, its kinda iffy.

    deoxys-d shouldnt even have the thought of a suspect test. its too much set up bait.

    EDIT: @prohawk

    not sure. possibly sash mamoswine, or wobbuffet coming in off a recent kill?

    special defensive jirachi, its like a 5hko with hp fire while jirachi can 3hko with iron head, its like dealing with volcarona, it depends on the set, if it lacks surf heatran walls it, no psyshock chansey and blissey but ttar is by far the best

    if its in rain, spec def rachi takes more from surf than hp fire. either one is a 3 hit kill from specs/life orb. a wish/protect/body slam/iron head rachi destroys it, as it can switch in, wish, then body slam then get wish recovery so its at 60-70%, latios could be para'd, but is certainly damaged. However if you see a dragon dance latios with life orb earthquake, both ttar and rachi should be afraid. It can't always kill ttar after rocks, but a tiny bit of residual on both of them (down to 80%, that spikes+SR or one NVE hit/u turn or something) and its a clean kill for latios who is awesome with DD. DD latios also outspeeds and hp fires scarf genesect, no revenge kill there.

    also even dd outrage or specs psyshock won't dent max hp/def bold chansey, who can heal, status, set up rocks and generally troll it out with a toxic it or some s tosses.

    I'll try and get on both of these ASAP, I was just waaaay too busy yesterday xD So much hw. Today might be a little tight since it's Halloween as well, but I'll make an effort to get an event battle or 2 done at the very least...

    I counted three new active members... Okay. List of good vs bad birthday presents

    GOOD

    3 new active members
    awesome mountain-road hybrid bike with hydraulic disk brakes, front wheel suspension (that can turn on and off) and 27 gears

    BAD
    No power
    Disney bought Lucasart (or whatever that company was called, the star wars one)(I think)


    Also, I still don't have power.

    God no, do you even know how they judge what pokes should be banned?? It's not whether they sweep teams or are setup bait. It's if they do their job in a gamebreaking way

    Thundurus-T is far from broken. Base 101 Speed is fairly average, a weakness to rocks doesn't help and even though it has a pretty decent typing and ability, it requires too much support to be successful.

    Gene can do more then simply run a scarf. Use Rock Polish and you can sweep entire teams, I have countless times. Not to mention it can actually go Physical and do it well. When you see a Gene, sure you assume it's Scarfed, but it has an amazing number of options available to it. I hope it doesn't get banned but it probably will.

    Dexoys-D actually has some offensive presence while being able to lay down hazards combined with really good speed. Usually a Gene or Scizor will come in to U-Turn on it, but Fire Gem + HP Fire is a common set used higher up on the ladder which not only ruins that chance (on non-scarfed pokes) but also takes away a major offensive threat. That's just one combination. On Smogon they discuss several others, all which are viable and show how much of a threat Deoxys-D really is

    Wobb, yea I guessLatios can't do much there

    Sash Mamo still dies to 2 Surfs and can't do much back with a measly Ice Shard, certainly can't OHKO

    Yea, Rachi and Ttar look like the best choices so far. I'm looking more for a universal counter then a counter for specific sets

    Yea Chansey is a best, guess that's number 3...

    Erm, HP Fire maybe?? Pretty sure it's a 2HKO at least...

    And yes, it'll be going up more soon =D

    Yay LC. And dat Horsea, pretty much amazing. Although in saying that, you're opp had a defensive team which isn't all that great in LC. Usually you see a balanced or really offensive team
