    Yes it is. But TR is a HUGE PAIN.... And with NO sleep clause as is sleep inducers. if you wanna battle a little later let me know. Like I said I'm still working on a few team members. I gotta wait till my girls are done playing mario kart so I can trade a few abuser's over.

    Oh I've also been seeing ALOT more stall. Very very good stall teams

    That's kinda strange, and yeah TR was a pain for me in the winter tournament, had to be very careful with who and what i was using. Slip one turn and it was basically over

    the past few days I've been running into leech seed and (blasted it brain farting on the name of the move but it's where you plant roots) ferrothorns and blissey combo's.

    Well, I don't see too many teams that have an all out weather team, but a lot of them run a weather+weather abuser offensive core. I've seen ALOT of Tyranitar+Excadrills, and Politoeds+Kingdras out there, so be sure to keep them in check.

    Getting ready to do some testing on showdown. Always the highlight of my battling experiences, team building :/
    Edit: Decided to throw in the suggested ferrothorn, and just for giggles a TR/Imprison Chandelure. More useable than hydreigon and metagross, but I can't help but feel ferrothorn is somewhat of a dead weight unless it's pure weather or I wanna abuse TR with solely him, and I have some issues with volcarona and excadrill. Chandelure is decent, nice for getting rid of TR and putting dents in most of the users. Other than that, he's just waiting to die as well. More tweaking/learning i guess! I won 5 battles i think and lost 2, one was kind of a dumb one on my part the other was just poor team matchup i guess.

    Yeah... ferrothorn is one of those Pokemon that are a little difficult to use, but can change the course of some battles.
    If you want some ideas... here's a video of me successfully using ferrothorn: 84-09866-44175

    This is what I used:

    Ferrothorn @ Occa Berry
    Brave(+Atk, -Spe) (0 Spe)
    Iron Barbs
    252 HP / 158 Atk / 100 Def
    - Protect
    - Leech Seed
    - Gyro Ball
    - Power Whip
    Generally, the Ferrothorn can OHKO Rotom-W, offensive Politoed, and Gastrodon. It can also 2HKO T-Tar, take out MEtagross through leech seed stall, and work as a great check for rain. Gyro Ball can 2HKO most of the speedier threats like Latios and Garchomp. The thing is you probably should watch out for any SE moves, and avoid it from hitting ferrothorn, but outside of that, the rewards he can bring are great!

    I think my main problem was the EV spread, I've got a rather different EV spread that wasnt really getting me anywhere. Plus the Occa Berry might help as well

    Yeah... the ev spread is usually the part I spend most time on, so I generally just run 252/252 when I can't think of anything else.

    So it looks like I've maxed out the number of images I can have on my original post, meaning, I can't add anymore images.

    I'll keep that in mind for the new tourney though, and make separate posts for the Trainer stuff. (:

    Aww, and I'm all ready for the tourney. Eh, nothing special though, haven't been in a Pokémon mood lately, so just using my classic team. But I guess it'll be nice to use them again not having done so in a while.

    Well, I transferred my team onto White 2, so I'm all set to go when this thing opens.
    And while I was at it, I collected my Keldeo. Not like it will help me in this tourney, but it's cool that these things are both live at the same time. (:

    I'm too sleepy to start now xD Why does this start at midnight? --'

    Anyway, made a few training battles and I was able to check my team's readiness. The only change from the Winter Tournament is the addition of Hydreigon. Won't dare to change a team that's been doing so well

    Edit3: Won my first, 1-1 now
    Edit4: Beat some japanese person with a rating 76 higher than mine.....D/C :/
