    Speaking of replays... Ah crap. I forgot to save the replays for winning over 1410. ... Was it 1410?
    Well, I guess there will be more chances.

    Voting Slowbro. Because let it have some glory WITHOUT it being eaten by that Shellder.

    Also, some replays for that ladder challenge.

    http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ou-645818474

    And this one is when I got to 1430 exactly, but... also a very fun battle. If this one doesn't count, I'll get another replay eventually.

    Yes, that last ones funny, somethin about Counter Chansey is kinda loopy. Must be the contrast between the usual Chansey hoshposh of it killin you slowly and outright doin you in with an OHKO move. >w<

    That Chansey's got SO many kills... Over half of the games usually go like: "Landorus used Stealth Rocks! Chansey used Stealth Rocks! Landorus used Earthquake! Chansey used Counter! Landorus fainted!"

    Still experimenting with a variety of builds. Some less successful than the others, so if I need another replay to satisfy the "winning over 1430" requirement, it may take some time.

    Lure sets are always fun, and it is getting to that scary time of the year so a ghost sounds fitting. It's Rockium-Z Mismagius! A simple set, you just set up a Nasty Plot and sweep at the opportune moment. Shadow Ball is fitting for STAB, Dazzling Gleam is so certain mons like Scrafty and Guzzlord can be hit hard enough and the kicker is Rockium-Z, which lures in certain mons that may think they can take a hit. Such mons include Braviary, Golbat, Crogonal, Vikavolt, and sometimes Incineroar and Houndoom. With these mons lured and out of the way, we can pave the way for other teammates that would appreciate their presence not being felt anymore. Rockium-Z doesnt even have to be used, sometimes the coverage and power from a regular old Power Gem is enough, so its nice to have. Then we save the big hit for something else! Mismagius enjoys things out of the way that may look to take her out quicker then she can act, fast things like Sneasel, Frosslass, Sucker Priority and scarfers all can prey on Miss' often unfortunate defense. So we'll have to play around those more often then not, once they're out of the way, there's not much that can stomach +2 hits from this ghost. Well, except certain bulky mons, there's a plethora but most arent built to take many hits from a boosted missy so she should be good with the team support needed to weaken them in general!

    Alrighty, how about this for an offensive partner? Sceptile appreciates the absence of things like Braviary, Emboar, Golbat due to Mismagius' +2 attacks and especially with the Continental Crush in tow. Specs Sceptile has immediate breaking power due to its high powered STAB and Focus Blast coverage. Seriously, not a lot can switch in too many times into specs Leaf Storm. Dual STAB at your convenience, one to initially break through fatter teams and the other for accuracy and a bit of increased longevity in the face of hazards. Focus Blast is to hit things like Cryogonal and Scrafty and Guzzlord. Don't forget Togedemaru which has become increasingly popular. Hidden Power Flying seems odd, but it's to be able to hit hard the tiers bulkier grass types like Virizion and especially Whimsicott who love to switch in on Sceptile. Plus its a go to against Emboar if we're forced to attack it up front. Sceptile also makes a great late game cleaner once its counters have been done away with!

    - Stealth Rock
    - Earthquake
    - Rock Blast
    - Megahorn

    Rhydon is arguably the best rocker in the tier. It threatens out so many of the common hazard control and gets up rocks very easily on the things it comes in on due to its immense bulk. Even Xatu has to be wary of its Rock Blast when coming in and trying to prevent rocks. Rock Blast over any other rock coverage as it can take down Froslass with 3 hits through the sash. Choosing Rhydon as it meshes well with out current mons. Rhydon lures out bulky waters such as Vaporeon, Seismitoad, and Slowbro. All of which our current mons would love to take advantage of. Megahorn is almost purely so Malamar can get threatened out and can be used against a predicted grass type as well. Rhydons typing does compliment our current mons as the water and grass type attacks aimed at could provide a hard switch opprotune for Sceptile. Sceptile can then react with the appropriate coverage. Even some of Rhydons weaknesses can be used to get in Mismagius as well due to her typing and ability.

    Alrighty here. Slowbro this fine Poke? It can survive a hit from a Banded Emboar's Wild Charge AND tanks it's Superpower and Flare Blitz excellently. Not only that, non-Freeze Dry Vanilluxe really have a problem dealing with it. Max defense ensures we can survive hits from mons like Emboar, Hitmonlee, and Steelix. Calm Mind lets us boost on a switch-in which can easily give us an edge in a fight against Mons like Virizion. Scald and Psyshock are standard STAB moves, and Scald can let us try and get burns on switch-ins to mons like Sneasel which would definitely spell trouble for Slowbro. Slack Off lets us stay in with our Calm Mind boosts to keep us alive and well to keep boosting and taking out mons that would cause us trouble. It also pairs very well with Rhydon and Sceptile as it tanks the Water and Fire moves that would otherwise demolish them.

    Slowbro's just too nice of a mon to pass up! It pivots excellently and continues doing so with its ability. Has excellent offensive synergy with Sceptile as the lizard can rid the opposing team of Steelix, Piloswine, Seisimitoad, Vaporeon and especially opposing Slowbro and Slowking, yknow, all the ones I mentioned that do like to Toxic Slowbro. Not only that, it eases the pressure off of Rhydon to switch into hits when we dont have the momentum. A sort of defensive core, if you will, has now been set up! Though that doesnt mean our team is outta the woods yet. Hazards, especially Toxic Spikes can wear down our walls quickly, and the tier is actually full of Ice types that carry Freeze-Dry. So our switch ins to that are null, especially in the face of the common Scarf Vanilluxe. Dark types also get a free kill by clicking their special dark moves, so we have to be wary of that as well as we build. While our team is powerful it may also be susceptible to sweepers like Agility Vikavolt, Autonomize Vanilluxe, and a lotta powerful mons that bolster their speed via item or move. How we're gonna deal with? Maybe a scarfer? Maybe a specialized defogger? Maybe a SCARF SPINNER. You decide! It's up to you to look at the team and make a decision as to what mon may best patch up those weaknesses!

    Mick to the rescue!

    Hariyama @ Assault Vest
    Ability: Thick Fat
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 SpD
    Adamant Nature
    - Close Combat
    - Knock Off
    - Bullet Punch
    - Fake Out

    Provides the team with a special tank, a Vanilluxe counter, and a dark resist. It forms a pretty solid defensive core with Slowbro and Rhydon. Close Combat is for STAB while Knock off gets rid of items and hits stuff that resist Close Combat like Golbat, ghost and psychic types. Fake Out and Bullet Punch double priority can help stop sweepers and pick off weakened mons. Plus, Bullet Punch can threaten against Whimsicott, which the team has a bit of an issue with atm.

    Yeah, Hariyama does do a good few things for the team, was mullin it over to. Thick Fat, AV tank, dark resist. If anything, I would slash Ice Punch over Fake Out to. Just so we have another go-to against Golbat and Whimsicott on the switch to. Maaaybe Stone Edge so we can hit hard any outta hand Vikavolt.

    Anywho, i'll end this round tonight now!

    And with that, Hariyama is on the team! Boasting a stupendous base HP of 140, it's somewhat underwhelming defenses are made up for! Especially with an AV turning it into a specially defensive tank! Hariyama helps to cover the any lingering ice and dark weaknesses our team may have had, as well as solidifying our defensive core. If anything, should you feel coverage issues arise we can change that Fake Out to something else!

    The last mon is upon us? What will it be? As a more balanced team, we do have issues with hazards wearing us down. Especially without hazard control, but we also might need some more speed control to! As a means of late game clean up. Whatever we decide, do be sure to think about it thoroughly. While there may be no rush, let's not let the thought of the next mon intimidate us so much we deign to make a move. ^^;

    Yay, I actually did it. And the video doesn't show what I did with Mega Latios. It was a Dragon Dance set. With a random Ice Beam to spit at Landorus. Works VERY well.

    There really isn't a Pokemon that I need at all, so... I'll pass on the free Pokemon.
