    So, question.


    Tentacruel or Blastoise as a water spinner? Blastoise is generally bulkier, but doesn't have an immunity to Toxic Spikes, so I'm sort of on the fence here.

    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.

    Mence had nothing to set him apart from other DD Sweepers until he got Moxie. Jirachi was sort of annoying, but I'm not sure he was as much of a gem as the other Pokemon. I'll give you the Lati@s, they were really cool.

    Metagross on the other hand sports some of the most balanced stats in the metagame, with Speed being his only truly low stat, and Agility to compensate for that. His movepool somewhat disappoints, but he's got some decent options.

    Uhhh. Not sure if I know much on the topic, but I'm pretty sure he had a lot over them. He had access to a much higher power Fire Blast them then all, was faster than them all, and he had a good ability in the form of Intimidate to force switches. That's, at least imo, why he was banned to ubers in 4th gen.

    Dragonite was weaker, slower, and had Inner Focus, which is only really good against Focus Sash leads. So I'm pretty sure if anything, Salamence has been brought back a few steps in BW and BW2.

    Once again Avicii nails it. Mence was a major threat in Dppt, so much so that he got banned. On the other hand, Metagross is one of the least used OU pokes. His only real selling point is being able to solidly counter Kyurem-B, which to be fair, is a pretty amazing feat but not really enough to be consistent outside of that. Poor Speed and Special Defense really hurts on a poke designed to be a tank. The low Speed I can live with, due to high defense and attack, plus typing. The low special defense really holds Metagross back, which is a real shame

    Wow, so many new members all of a sudden xD Welcome to both of you! I see you both wifi battle... not many of us do HOWEVER I'm currently working on building my PO team in game (halfway there so far) so as soon as that's completed I'll do some wifi matches with you (since it'll probably be hard to find other people in the clan to do them with.... >w>)

    What about Starmie? When you switch out the poison goes away if you have Natural Cure (and who wouldn't)

    Ladder more/higher. Yes Dexoys-D is pretty much a suicide lead, but it guarantees at least 1 layer of hazards up. Red Card/Taunt can be run to avoid being set up fodder. Fire Gem + HP Fire I mentioned. Electric Gem + Tbolt to beat Starmie. Superpower to beat Ttar. Magic Coat to beat opposing hazard leads and taunts. Skill Swap to troll over Magic Bouncers. Rocky Helmet to mess up Physical Attackers. Tanga Berry to give it another chance at Gene/Scizor. If you seriously don't think Dexoys-D doesn't deserve a test ban at least, you're not playing enough/good enough opponents

    Plus, the series ended. It would be like adding a book eight to the Harry Potter series or something.

    While this is true, Abomasnow still can do a lot in the right hands. People just don't like it's ability (ironically enough) since it ruins teams that aren't completely made of Ice types. Its stats also kind of veer people away from using it, even though it can do a ton of damage if used correctly (so not as a suicide lead is what I'm saying).
    Plus, it needs a better ability than Soundproof. That's just a stupid gimmick ability.

    Terrachomp? I'm afraid I'm not familiar with that...

    Gyarados is a good one too. Unless your opponents Icicle Crash decides to crit you even after Intimidate...

    CM Latios is a good check, but it cannot switch right in on an Icicle Crash/Spear

    Welcome to the clan!
    On competetive.
    Deo D is one of the best tools in my arsenal.
    All of my teams can deal with almost any sect set, you need to higher up when it is about bluffing>scarfing.
    metagross is meh.
    tornadus-T i would be glad to see go.
    mamo is not a solid counter to latios, weaville with sash could be (pursuit, faster etc)
    latias>latios in calm mind, esp vs special landorus and mamo, as recover+natural bulk. can take 2 hp ices from modest LO rock polish.
