    signature pokemon...
    well, i can't answer that really. if i use one pokemon too many times, i become reliant on it, and cannot make a team without it. that makes me a one minded battler. i should try all of the tactics possible so i know how people like to use them, and how i like to use them.
    so i really dont have a signature pokemon.
    and i believe slowking can learn role play, because i watched a video of wolfey battling and he used an ability copy/switch tactic against a discharge team.

    EDIT: and i made a new team
    drizzle dont kill me, but its a slowking +gastrodon core team xD
    i didn't steal your team, you inspired my team xD but i am pretty sure i only used three of the pokes your used. anyway you got the idea from somewhere too :3
    anyway i am going to use it in the upcoming international tourney. i wish you all luck training your teams up ^^

    Hmmm Well when it comes to NU tiered battles my signature pokemon is Houndoom.


    Ok now as for the new tourney coming up i've decided to go with a primarily NU team (daring isnt it) and im sticking to my janurary team of golduck, crobat, hitmontop, scizor, marowak, and latios. it works better than what you think so dont judge it :P

    wait... singles team or doubles team O.o
    in doubles, you dont use tiers... its VGC rules. ._.

    EDIT: 3-0 on a standard rain team i usually beat them but not by much. it was almost a 4-0 this is the new team with the slowking-gastrodon core this rain team was awfully standard and annoying to even look at, because it was so standard xD

    That is actually a really cool team :o.
    I didn't expect a more of a supporting Starmie to be in there. I thought it'd be more of a Pokemon to come in after TR goes away.

    Yeah, it flows together much better than I thought it would. That's the reason I kept all the speed IV's on Starmie, that way it can pick things off and provide Skill Swap support when out of Trick Room.

    Now the Role Play+After You Cofagrigus team I'm testing right now, that one I'm having a hard time pulling together. Role Playing Prankster is easy and After You+Focus punch works marvelously, but the whole thing falls apart if Cofagrigus dies, which happens pretty quickly once people see what I'm up to.

    I guess it works best if you can knock out your opponent before they knew what hit them...

    It's called element of surprise xD
    Hmm it would throw someone off gaurd but once they see cofagrigus wouldnt they target that first since that's a supportive mon anyway?

    Not necessarily. The truth is, I'd rather target a more threatening partner, which usually Prankster poses. I find that Prankster Pokemon are a lot more annoying. Especially if they can run something like Fake Out. So, for Cofagrigus' partner, I'd really suggest using Sableye or Liepard. Just because of that Fake Out. You can easily fake out the more threatening foe, and if you choose Liepard, Encore the pokemon that likes to spam protect or Fake Out

    One Problem with those kinda prankste pokes, as soon as they use fake out, and even if they get in their spamming support priority, they can be killed easy. Ex. Liepard is ko'd by a breeloom mach punch, sableye is ko'd or near ko'd depending on evs by common pokes.
    so if one is to use prankster pokes one must remember how to use it, and how to counter it, to avoid being countered themselves.

    Anywho,
    I have a team idea for VGC, it's Gengar, Hitmontop, Scizor, Kingdra/Latios, registeel, and zapdos.
    Any opinions on it?

    ..woah i went on a tangent. lol
    Also Joey, i'd like to apply for cloner.

    You'd be surprised how long some people can keep a Liepard alive in a battle

    Also, you're team is pretty interesting. But, Registeel seems kind of randomly thrown in there, just out of curiosity, what is his role? ._.

    Registeel's role is an annoyingly stuborn wall.
    it bulks jolly garchomp's eq and a bunch of other things, and wrecks havic with thunderwave, then it eq's or seismic tosses.
    also, the team revolves around zapdos' tailwind.

    I see. But, if part of its job is to take Garchomp's EQs, shouldn't you run Ice Punch in a spot to get some 2HKOs off on him? Or, maybe running something like Paraflinch?

    I need a Pokemon that can check Tyranitar + Excadrill. Options outside of Landorus-T. Something that can resist EQ would be nice...

    Actually Liepard was the Prankster I had went with, for exactly those reasons. Figured if I could encore a few things, that would leave Cofagrigus free to spam a few prankster Will-o-wisps around. Liepard was also sashed, so Role Playing it's ability was almost guaranteed. I think part of the problem is I was focusing it too much on one strategy. I usually prefer teams that give me lots of tools to work with, so that I almost always have a way out of sticky situations. It could also simply be because I haphazardly threw the team together to test the concept, I suppose.

    As for a pokemon to counter Excadrill and Tyranitar, Landorous-T works pretty well, but if you don't want to use it, I suppose pokemon like Hitmontop, Scrafty, and Breloom would work pretty well. Hitmontop/Scrafty can weaken them with Intimidate, take hits well, and KO back with their fighting STAB's. Technician Breloom can lay waste with Technician Mach Punch, provided they aren't Sashed of course.




    I haven't heard much about the mono region tournament, but I think the re-registrations this weekend right? Haven't heard anything about how we should register for this second time, but I want it noted I am participating. You should still have my information from the last registry. However, I'm going to be unavailable this weekend, so if everyone decides to start the battles then, mine will have to be postponed for Monday.

    Playing on PS right now. Got a few forfeits, and I did lose do to some really good predictions. I think I have the team that I want to use, just not sure if it's 100% the best it can be. More playtesting! haha

    Meh. I like knowing that i put effort into the pokemon I'm using. Like RNG and Trading is fine, but I feel like Pokecheck is a bit lazy, and is the next best thing to just hacking it in like Pokegen or whatever.

    But it's cool that you use it, I just wanted to say haha.

    I'm actually excited to get these Pokemon bred and stuff. I'm gonna have to do some mad cramming to get it done, but I'm excited to see it through.

    oh no no no i dont put it in pokegen.
    i think i will use my team i just trained. i like it a lot. the only reason i didn't want to use it is because my only counter to scizor is my slowking... who needs TR up to be an affective counter ._.
    anyway anyone want to battle in game?
    please respond to this OVER VM because i dont want any spam in here.

    I think I'll try out Scrafty just because it has higher defenses. And, it's not that I am against using Landorus-T, it's just that I can't because I don't have the dream radar. I actually used to run one on PS until I came to that realization.

    Yup, I tried out Rotom for a bit, but there's just something about him that wasn't working out :/ I just couldn't tell what though

    But it's cool that you use it, I just wanted to say haha.

    I'm actually excited to get these Pokemon bred and stuff. I'm gonna have to do some mad cramming to get it done, but I'm excited to see it through.
    Yeah, I usually do breed/catch my own Pokemon when I have time, but I now depend on trading and PokeCheck for some of those guys that I just didn't already breed
