    I use my favorites a lot in lower tiers like RU. I almost always have Manectric on my team. In OU I use Jirachi and Gengar on a lot of my teams. I probably use the most favorites on my LC teams, which contain Porygon and Murkrow.

    Unless your favorites can make use of choice scarf or benefit like crazy from weather or use volt turn you will almost never win and its just that simple.

    I plan to merely use Pokemon that will work. For instance, I heard that Azelf and Machamp were being used increasingly more, so at the recommendations of a guide I saw, I'm using a Gallade to take them down. Gyarados will be my attacker, and Regirock will be a defensive wall.

    (Yes, I am new to this stuff...)

    Pretty much the Pokemon I have in my team are UU or lower (And Excadrill) because most of my favorites are in those tiers. Ironically, pretty much all of my LEAST favorite Pokemon are OU or higher.


    I must say, I am 110% against this action, I mean, quoting Wikipedia, '' A world of free knowledge will be lost ''. I say screw SOPA and PIPA, and all who agrees with me, sig this! We all detest the bill and will fight for the freedom of the Internet!

    Well, do you use your favorites reasonably, at least?

    I love Groyvile, but I'd never use it competitively, but I will with Zoroark.

    Wait, I hope you aren't being serious about keeping a pokemon just for the sake of sacrificing it...

    It's named after a chess piece, that was the joke! Also, Bisharp's not too bad with its STAB Sucker Punch along with its access to Swords Dance. Still, if a piece has seen its use, why not sacrifice it as opposed to a potentially more powerful strategy? Ugh...so many chess references and I haven't played it in a while.

    Yeah, I got it, but when someone argues, I always get the feeling they actually mean it.

    I never said sacrificing a teammate is a bad thing. In fact, I do it all the time. But having one just for the same of sacrificing it....that's just a waste of a team slot.

    True but sometimes pieces have a simple purpose (like Baton Pass users) and once they've done their job, they're not going to be of much use.

    Well, yeah, but at least they do something before they faint. The sacrificial strategy I was thinking of is when you swap a pokemon who you know will faint into an attack just so you can sent in a check afters. For example, a +2 Dragonite with Dragon Claw and Fire Punch. Your theoretical scarf Terrakion can't swap in, and you want to use the pokemon you have on the battle field to take out another one of your enemy's pokemon, so you send in a different pokemon to take the attack so Terrakion can outspeed an OHKO.

    Yeah. Sometimes I win sometimes I lose. Fortunately, a lot of my favorites are OU but they aren't the threatening OUs

    I actually refuse to use generic but "good" teams because I hate the Pokemon that those teams are usually made up of.

    I always use my favorite Pokemon no matter what tier they're in. As long as I'm having fun, I'm happy with Competitive Battling
