    Yeah....but you know, you aren't the only one who has to put up with that. I mean, I really like Rotom's base form much better then any of it's others, but it's not exactly the most useful ghost around. It could potentially be used in OU, but it's more of a pokemon best for filling a hole in your team than one to build a team around.

    But Luvdisc can't be your only favorite, right?

    Oh yeah! There's always Joltik, for when Luvdisc gets boring! xD But really, I do really like Chandelure, so I suppose that's good!

    I try to make all of my teams of pokemon I like. Reason I don't tend to use legendarys. Prefer breeding and raising my pokemon from an egg.

    I havnt really got to do wifi battles much due to me not having wifi but I just got it 3 months ago so I am able to do it now :3! I dont have my team prepared but I only want my fav Pokemon in the team. I was thinking of a Typeflusion, Lucario, Gardevoir, Emolga, Whimsacote, and a Clafable. But not sure x.x

    Ahh the possibilities. I had fun in ubers using my a team full of legendary pixies (some of you all them the 100 all base stats pokemon) as a way to entice the enemy, "Don't bully my children. You will be called a meanie if you do."

    Surprisingly, I actually got 40% wins with 60% Losses with my legendary children. Surprising huh? I even owned Arceus butt, Deoxys as well, even sand rush excadrill and speed boost blaziken, The weather trio as well (bye bye Rayquaza! Fear Prince Manaphy you draconic son of a *****!!! I hated you ever since you murdered me 150 times 10 years ago!), annd even the creatio trio. Though I still struggle with Unovian legendaries (God**** those musketeers! they are no joke for sure)

    Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Mnaphy, Shaymin Sky forme, and Victini. Tell us we are cute! Really, try them! It makes me feel so success full to beat those boastful giants (except cresselia and reshiram)

    I've been trying my best to incorporate Beeheeyem into a team, but I just can't work it in.

    Likewise with toxicroak, but with better results.

    Azleaf -UU
    Uxie/mespirit-Ru why use them in ubers?
    and if you use all of them.. darkai says hi.. don't use 3 pokemons of the same time that don't have good synergy.. they can't beat darkai..
    I played ubers.. like 20% of the teams are uber noobs.

    All of my favourites are in either NU/little cup and have terrible stats, or Uber, and I play in OU only, so nope ;m;

    I generally don't.. Most of my favorite are NU or NFE, and I'm just not skilled enough to use my favorites effectively in OU.

    And this is why I love thematic teams not based on winning steak desires (which are too many in the competitive realm) like the weather setting teams. Yeah of course I know Darkrai is the ONE BOSS that gives us doubts. But I did manage to defeat him ONCE on one battle in ubers. This will be a good idea for me open a new competitive thread soon.

    Look sir, I know the harsh nature of this place. But if you are convincing me to dump my favorite team that I enjoyed using in ubers, then at least base me a certain pokemon that can take on Darkrai. I mind BOTH aesthetics and performance.

    Like 75% of the people I've talked in Pokemon showdown only care about the COMMON EFFECTIVE TEAM STRATEGIES. The other 25% would rather challenge themselves to overcome impossible odds. Like I dunno if there has been an NU team veteran defeating and Ubers veteran?

    But out of curiosity, are you encouraging me to play safe by using well known strategies rather than going out of the box with effective strategy?

    My favorites are usable in OU, but it requires quite a bit of skill (Misdreavus and Umbreon).

    It's the reverse with me - I don't necessarily use my favourites, but I NEVER use pokemon I hate, even if they're good competitively. This includes gastrodon, ferroseed, forrestress, or just about any ugly pokemon in general. Because I'm shallow and judge things based on appearance, I tend to use a team of badass-looking pokemon

    Same here. I just hate Forretress, and it took a while for someone to convince me to use Heatran.

    Most of my favourites are so because of competitive battling. e.g Salamence. Its easy to use, hits hard and has a cool design.
    Pokédex is complete (until October 12th that is).

    Many competitive pokemon I end up liking as my favorites, but some I always liked regardless (Luxray and schuckle)
    Yep we should ban baton pass, and weather too. Oh and Trick Room, I'm tired of having to worry about Trick Room all the time. Just ban the move Trick Room, and prankster, it's broken. Ban all status moves on prankster users, they're too cheap. Oh and ban Probopass to it's so cheap. Just ban everything except Magikarp with splash.
    Well, actually Blaziken isn't really Uber because some people whined about how they were getting owned by it. I mean, it doesn't stand a chance in the Uber enviroment.

    It depends on the pokemon. In NU, for example I would use a Sneasel if I needed a set-up mon or a scarf Pokemon. I wouldn't dream of doing this in OU, but would go for a Weavile instead.
    So yes, I do it but within sensible reasons.

    I did... then he got banned.
    (Blaziken)

    My second favorite is probably Rayquaza, so yeah, no, don't really use him in OU too often.

    I guess for me, it really matters on whether it's usable in high tiers or not. I loe using Virizion, like a lot, and even though it's UU, I tend to use it more than say... Forretress or something. If I were playing lower tiered matches, this would occur a lot more often, but alas OU is what I know best.
