    I'm still working on my team, been trying to build a non weather using counter to weather teams. Specifically counters to Kingdra in the rain and Excadrill in sand. I'll either post it when its done or edit this post with it.

    Well I'm almost done making my team, the only problem is I can't properly test it on Showdown because I keep losing to the severe lag I'm facing. One jerk even had the nerve to claim I was stalling despite the fact he was beating me 4-2...of coarse the timer runs out before my attacks come up. From what I could assess when I used them before this issue, the team should be pretty decent.

    So from here on out, I've already got one person who wants to practice against me, if anyone else chooses to do so, just send me a VM/PM. My code is in my signature and on the first page

    just wondering... why are there so many gliscor's?
    i am using one myself, but i have never seen so many xD
    are people using them as more of a creative idea (like me) or are they regular pokemon they use? because gliscor is a very uncommon site in vgc.

    I'm using Sand Veil Gliscor because of my fighting weakness and because I'm a Sand team. Not sure for everyone else though. Maybe STAB Earthquake?

    regardless of being a sand team, they get very little usage. i have never battled one in my life.
    most people prefer garchomp and excadrill and landorus for a sand sweeper.
    but anyway i am using my because of hyper cutter, which makes attack drops do nothing, making it a complete hitmontop and scrafty counter. also for taunt. i am kinda trick room weak without taunt on my team, and landorus and excadrill can't get it.

    they have 95 attack -.-
    also i am using mine as a sand counter, because a well put together sand team easily counters rain teams.

    Because I like to be a little more original then others... plus I forgot about Excadrill's Sand Rush. I could actually make a useful Landorus-T given it's lower speed though and more useful ability. Huh, guess I really didn't think this all out XD

    Lileep is my rain counter and Ferrothorn too I guess

    well the fact that rain often has thundurus-T w/ focus blast or hitmontop's it will need good playing to be a counter. plus ferrothorn walls out rain completely.

    You know what I hate about Focus Blast? It's always like a 100 accuracy move for my opponent, but 30 accuracy move for me. Regardless, Lileep survives most Hitmontop CCs unless it's got a Fighting Gem.

    Did you finally get that DR Landorus-T so you could use Thundorus-T?

    Someone was asking about the International Challenge RMTs, and the lack of them, so I got on top of things and did one. (:

    Also, while I'm here, why don't we talk about the metagame. What is everyone commonly seeing in their practice battles, be it Showdown, PO, or GBU? Seeing waht everyone is practicing with could give a hint towards what we'll most likely see during the tournament. Are Rain teams the big thing right now? Sand? Trick Room? Standard Goodstuffs?

    From what I could get from my laggy attempts to continue my testing on Showdown the other day, TR and Rain were in big usage. Of coarse I couldn't properly test because I keep timing out because my opponents were impatience.

    Good thing I have Gliscor, the bane of Breloom ^_^

    I've been practicing online a bit, and to be honest, It's actually all over the place @.@
    I've seen an increase usage in Arcanine on the GBU, but that's probably more of a coincidence. Tyranitar + Excadrill core are in most of the battles, so be sure you're ready to be fighting them. Surprisingly, I haven't fought a single Politoed + Kingdra core, or any rain teams at that matter. I've seen Kingdra in non rain teams though, which is interesting.

    Surprising enough, the Politoad + Kingdra lead is the least of my troubles, the Excadrill + Tyranitar lead could prove deadly for me though

    I've got a Kingdra on my Sand Team lol.
    I found that if I come up against a Rain team, then slipping him in means if they get control of the weather then I can still give them a taste of their own medicine

    Personally, I'd use Ludicolo for it's grass STAB, but I guess Kingdra doesn't sound like a bad plan either. You'd probably just want something like a life orb or choice specs to give it an extra power boost.

    Also, I think I should note that a resisted Hydro Pump is actually more powerful then a neutral Dragon Pulse in the rain, reaching 135 power while Dragon Pulse is at 120.

    Nothing is more powerful than friendship. Well, except a +2/+2/+2 Adamant Kyurem Black. In which case, you're done for.

    Oh hey, anyone interested in a practice battle right about now? My Friend Code is in my signature. Just VM me if you're interested ^_^


    EDIT: Well then... I just lost to a surf Garchomp on GBU @.@

    I just find that if I've got swift swim too then there's a chance I'll outspeed their Kingdra and kill it with Dragon Pulse.
    Plus if they run sand as well, there's a chance of switching in and even in the sand doing a fair amount of damage with water attacks.

    Yeah... but doesn't Ludicolo do the job the same, except better? I mean, you can still use it in rain by using super effective Grass moves, and still switch in during Sandstorm for the Ground resistance. It's just a thought, really.

    i am just made a new team, and i am loving it so far. i think i will use it!
    ill make an RMT right now for it.
    it is completely different from my last team. but i have all of the pokemon other than 2 in it already


    NM.
    i just realized that i could use an old team that i made, but never could get because of lack of therian forms! but now i can get it!
    it is more creative than most teams i made. i completely made a synergy pair (it was actually used in 2010... but i didn't know that when i made it xD)
    ill edit the team into my post
