    I have to say, I agree with this completely: It gets incredibly frustrating to see someone join the clan for a few hours and then leave...
    If you dont plan on staying for at least a week, dont plan on joining.

    latias can usually set up screens well, and if you set up reflect first, then you cant even be pursuit trapped unless you are at really low health, like 30% i think.

    i wouldn't recommend it, but its a great way to set up for a set-up pokemon, and a common one to use is rhyperior, who has solid rock to take even STAB boosted h-pumps if screens are up. i think....

    again, i dont personally like screens, but can be very effective. but, i prefer to just straight up set up than set up for my setup, lol.

    ....i dont get this....

    mamoswine cannot set up screens, nor does he really benefit at all from them. he really doesnt set up, except maybe rocks. I dont get what you are saying....

    basically, any pokemon that is super-offensive and sets up to counter half the metagame is great in tandem with a screener. landorus-i, its special rock polish set, is just such an example.

    Oh yeah, we had this one PO discussion where we discovered that Mamo could do dual screens. You had to be there.

    Xatu is pretty kewl since it has Roost and a slow U-Turn meaning you can often get switch advantage when your opp switches or bring something in safely since Xatu will take the hit.

    Um, maybe from something like Horsea

    252 SpAtk Horsea (+SpAtk) Hydro Pump vs 252 HP/252 SpDef Rhyperior: 56.91% - 67.28% (2 hits to KO)

    Thats with Solid Rock and behind a Light Screen. Then again Horsea is a beast, Usatoday and I know...

    Not an admin, but I'll spare them the trouble. It's been stated before that the best way to find battles is by simply going to the CG channel. Believe it's also stated in one of the OP's. As for best DD'ers, if we're talking lower tiers, Scrafty and Kingdra.

    RANDOM MOVESET OF THE WEEK

    I'm bringing back the animated sprites, cuz I said I'd do that and then only did it with Emolga. Anyway, this one goes out to my main 'mon Raticate!

    @Focus Sash
    EVs: 6 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
    Jolly Nature
    Ability: Guts
    -Counter
    -Reversal
    -Endeavor
    -Quick Attack/Sucker Punch

    Survive a powerful physical attack, then Counter it back. Once you're at low HP, use Reversal or Endeavor depending on what works better against the opponent you're facing. Quick Attack finishes off weakened foes while Sucker Punch is reserved for Ghosts.
    Oh hey, I have a Nuzlocke story.

    Improvement of the moveset: No counter!
    Just use endeveaur in the first turn, because you get KO'd in one hit, but focus shash got you to one hp, so you do endevor, so the enemy is at 1 HP as well.
    Then use Quick Attack.
    It;s a ghost type? Then use sucker punch.

    BRO. Yes Counter. It's a gimmick, sure, but if you're MASTERFUL AT PREDICTION you can pull it off.

    dual screeners, it depends if you want streght or suprise. mamo, genesect and virizion all get screens, and nobody sees it coming. then there is espeon, xatu, mew, bronzong and azelf are more common for speed/bulk. It depednds on teh team, as sometimes you wantU turn on them, sometimes rocks, sometimes bulk.
    To make it clear, if you PM me, I get an email. I do not use this site anymore.
    If you PM me I will do my best to get back to you.
