Goodbye friends. My Pokémon drive is reaching zero, so I'm gonna go do other stuffs. Love you all. c:
Just when i thought i had it figured out, i get my whole sand team slaughtered by this set:
Terrakion + Air Baloon
Hasty + 252sp.Att/252Speed
-Hidden Power Ice
Not only did it rip through hippowdon, but also (like i said earlier) my 5 other pokemon...made me feel like a b...

I know how it feels when that happens. Air balloon is quite threatening with terrakion. In sandstorm, won't an excadrill's brick break destroy it, or scizors bullet punch? Currently revamping my sand team, so might add one of these in. Did you have excadrill or garchomp in your team?
Terrakion-from a triples perspective- is an absolute pain to take down granted Whimsicott has finished its duty.
Whimsicott and Terrakion make ideal partners for each other: Whimsicott can tailwind whilst Terrakion guards or attacks.
Turn 2-Whimsicott uses beat-up,boosting Terrakions attack stat to stupid levels at the price of a bit of HP.
Terrakion kills everything in its path with rock slide.
Whilst it's predictable,taking precautions is vital for this common set-up:don't fall foul to it.
Use pokemon with access to Fake-Out,just in case Terrakion decides to attack on the turn tailwind's set up.
Wide Guard is also invaluable:if you see Terrakion in a triple battle,it's going to be using rockslide(which it'll likely be using in turn two of the battle.
Finally, a fast & hard hitter is useful when beating Terrakion to the gun.Serperior,Sceptile or Starmie(etc.)are all invaluable given their high speeds and hard hitting stats,although Nidoqueen would fair pretty well too.There's no need to OHKO immediately either,as many situations will result in beat up KOing Terrakion given it's on low enough health(which is fun to watch ).
Rayofquazar"Getting this pokemon burned or paralysed is a good way to make it more manageable... So prankster sableye comes to my mind with priority will-o-wisp. A terrakion with half it's attack is barely this huge threat that it is."
This is true-tricking it a lagging tail would also work out well,as it's easily accounted for with no speed by the slower power
houses such as Conkeldurr(who copes well anyway,actually)

Besides, is sableye based on a panda?

It's not like smogon is labeling only offensive ones uber on purpose. It's easier to be offensively powerful with few who could stop you then defensively good without it being crushed by a powerful pokemon.Smogon seems to be bad about putting down defensive playstyles and promoting hyper-offense...just look at their ban list, oddly placed pokemon in that list are solely there because they could potentially hinder the sweep of another "better" pokemon...and to think that they would dare say that they aren't overcentralizing the metagame :/......
Let's look at some of the best defensive pokemon. Ferrothorn, Skarmroy, and Blissey. I don't think I need to point out how easy they are to play around. To play around Excadrill or other super powerful offensive pokemon, you need one of the very few pokemon that can stop it, or something that can revenge kill it, which is rare in Excadril/Blaziken's case.
Move tutors in bw2 are going to make terrakion more interesting. If it can learn the punches, help us. Maybe this is where terrakion leaves ou to become uber
Iron head anyone?
I get your point though. Maybe Aqua tail, as that's another mt. What would happen if it got that? Dual type steels would get scared. Especially in the rain, where they can be found more often. Skarmory, which walls jolly natured forms wouldn't be able to wall him in the rain, though stone edge is more powerful in that circumstance.
We will know by Saturday, if we can put that info in the site by then. Until then, go with what you do know.
Thanks, philzone. Pretty sure no one would have said anything.
Apparently, I can't claim Larvesta. But who cares?
It's still the cutest bug eva!
I am The Grovyle, that friend in a high place.
The craziest battle I ever had- Toxic spikes supported baton passing team, with a Splashing Wailord. And won. You have to try it!
