    Default Cloyster For My Team (Need Help Picking Which One!)

    I plan on raising a Cloyster for use in-game in Battle Subway (Black) Super Single Train.

    Cloyster
    Skill Link
    White Herb

    - Icicle Spear
    - Rock Blast
    - Shell Smash
    - Razor Shell

    The attachment has a list of the Shellders I just hatched and that I'm deciding between.

    I can't decide which to use! I'm leaning towards "7" because of the excellent all-around IVs (specifically, the defensive ones all being 27); however, having the lowest Attack of the bunch is off-putting. All of them are Adamant with Skill Link, except for the one on the far right end, which is Naughty. All of them also have Rock Blast passed down to them. If I end up going with the Naughty one, Razor Shell will be changed to Hydro Pump.

    Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated! At this point, the main two partners I plan on using with it are my Volcarona and Gengar.

    I like 22 .. 7 is okay, but all-around good IVs mean nothing unless you use them all. Atk, Def, and Spd on 22 are good, and they're what you're cloyster shall be using most, judging from the set you planed out.

    in general i wouldn't use any of the others other than 7 based on poor defenses for my subway teams.

    How is the cloyster going to be used? just as a damage dealer? or a physical tank and to setup on physical attacks?

    The cloyster i was very much considering was:
    Shell Armor
    Leftovers
    Iron Defense
    Shell Smash
    Ice beam
    Substitute/surf/dive

    This one lets you setup on any physical attacker, especially if they have been debuffed by thunder wave and flash. It was nearly on my team instead of the latias, i decided to go for charm instead and to rely more on my drapion. Will probably give this a shot and see how i like it.

    But as i said, depends on the rest of your team, this one probably wont work for your team, even then i'd still go for 7 for the decent hp/defenses.

    This is not the best place for ask this, dude!
    No need for create a thread for such a question, don't you agree?

    But how stated by Bigheaded, we at least need to know how you pretend to use him. Physical, Special, Wall...i don't like any of'em, but still...
    Not only that, too. What's your whole team?
    Those few and unnecessary details (That depends of the person who posting it) can help, like, a lot. So yeah, provide us some more information, so we can help you better and this thread won't be locked.

    Thanks papayaperson and BigHeaded. I appreciate it! I actually have a defensive Cloyster as well, much like the one you mentioned....this new one is solely designed as a Shell Smash offensive powerhouse.

    UPDATE: I did end up going with "7" (I ended up going with it a few hours after I posted, before the responses came in) but I may raise a second offensive Cloyster and will take your advice to heart with that one. "7" is already fully EV-trained and at Level 73! Its performance in Battle Subway has been outstanding thus far. I underestimated just how good Shell Smash can be.

    Akanjao....this is a perfectly relevant thread for this for this forum. Please go play moderator somewhere else (and lose the ugly attitude).

    he is actually correct, seeing you have not posted a "team" it doesn't need a thread, posting up in one of the stickies will be fine:
    Subway only:
    http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthr...Building-Guide!
    General in game:
    http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthr...LOW-THE-FORMAT

    although to be fair, cloyster with shell smash is a one man team :P

    Whow! What an attitude, little one! Look how you talk to the people here, eh? I was trying to help you, if you didn't notice. Threads like this always get locked, simply because it doesn't follow the rules. Do you want more than that, man? Did you read the rules, at least, before talking ****?
    Geez, if you're stupid, you'll always be stupid, i see.

    Because of people like you, this place is now what it turned.
    Now, let me denounce this thread, let's see who's actually wrong. I have more experience on Sppf IGRMT than you think. If you don't accept help, you not gonna have help.

    Have fun with your team!

    Everyone, next time, just report to a mod instead of mini-modding -.-


    ^
    that, if you're just asking help for a single Pokemon, we have those two threads.





    as for MasqueJynx

    http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthr...ormat-**READ**

    Rule #15, use the appropriate thread for a single Pokemon, posting a new thread is for teams only, not a single Pokemon.

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^
