    yeah i think i'll give it a try today to see how it goes.
    personally it bothers me not having a fighting nor a water move but i think i can manage xD
    if it goes well i'll post the team later so you can update the OP ^^

    Now that we're coming up on the week of the tournament, guess i should start fixing my team! Anyone have suggestions for last 2 slots of my current team (Hitmontop, crobat, mamo, rotom-w)? Hydreigon and metagross really didnt do anything, and cress and TR were somewhat of a pain to deal with, as well as gastrodon sometimes. Top and crobat are almost always my first 2 out and mamo and rotom have done really well together, so i wouldnt be surprised if I just go with 2 pokemon that dont fit well with the team at all but are just trolly counters to what those 4 cant take. Those 4 basically alone got me to a 1716 rating in the winter tournament and i wasn't home for 2 days so hopefully i can do better now that i'll be home this weekend!

    So i was about to test my tean on pokemon showown and it wont let me battle because "Sableye has moves incompatible with its DW ability"
    as far as i know fake out, will-o-wisp, sucker punch and recover can be learn in Gen5 normally through breeding and move tutors...
    does anyone knows whats wrong?

    @ KuzKan I think Sucker Punch + Recover + Prankster is an illegal combination. Since it gets Prankster, you can't tutor it sucker punch in gen 4. Therefore, it says it's incompatible with the Dream World Ability.

    @ Bestgamepearl: How about a Ferrothorn? He us pretty viable in Trick Room, and he can destroy Gastrodon and take a lot of hits from non HP Fire Cress.

    But, Sucker Punch and Recover are learned by two different groups of Pokemon, so they can't both be passed down through breeding.

    in the club im in someone helped me already, i just gotta teach recover as an egg move in 4th gen and then proceed to teach sucker punch as tutor move and then breed that sableye with a DW female in 5th gen
    i still dont know why its considered illegal on showdown but no big deal

    I think it could work that way. I have no idea, but I did something like that with my Leafeon and taught it Iron Tail in Platinum and sent it over to my White. I don't know if I battled online with it that is. :/

    Dude, they no shiny. I wish they were though. Just saying a little mess up there unless you did that on purpose. And no offense if the way this is worded indicates a slight sound of it.

    Well, if you want to be cheap about it, you could use Amoonguss instead of Ferrothorn for the slowest spore in the game.

    Edit: Actually, I just assumed you were using trick room because of the post you quoted, but looking back at your post where you asked for suggestions, it seems you aren't. Sorry about that, Ferrothorn is probably better.

    Hahah soon, no worries! I'm a little busy right now, as I am currently editing my podcast and getting my own team ready, but don't worry. It should all be up by tomorrow. (:

    How is everyone's preparation's going? Teams ready? Practice ongoing?

    I have 5/6 of my team bred, and I'm EV training what I have while I look for parents for my last one. I also might swap out one of my team members for something else. Just getting some feedback and doing a little playtesting before I head off in that direction. I hate finding things out like that midway.

    I'm in and I'll try and fill the form out. I've been getting alot of practice in on the GBU. Weather teams seem not to be a problem anymore. Folks are going more towards a balanced team than worrying about weather power. TR teams are still a pain to deal with. I'm still messing around with 2 slots on my team. I'm running a rain support/offensive team. Gotta trade over a few pokes to make the team really work.

    That's a relief, weather was always painful to see over and over and over again
