PostSubject: Running on empty...   Mon Jul 30, 2007 3:30 am

It seems that when I lose, I lose because I have too many of a bad pokemon.
I need serious help, as this is my FIRST time with natures, EVs, etc. I am considering of dropping out of tournament 3 because of this.

So, here's an example of what I think:

Sweeper: All attacks, EVs in Speed and Attack

Special Wall: All helping buffs and DoTs (Light Screen, Softboiled, Toxic Spikes...)
EVs in Sp. Def and HP

Phys. Wall: Same as special but with Def. instead of Sp. Def

Spinner: Don't know.

Special Sweeper: All Special attacks, EVs in Speed and Sp. Atk
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
My team desire for PBR and stuff is something like Starmie, Magmortar, Garchomp, Electivire, Blissey(?), and Ninjask.

Ninjask for the speed buff (BTW where do I get Explosion and toxic spikes for TMs?)

Blissey for a wall and to help with the overall Defence of the team

Starmie for a range of special attacks

Magmortar for a different range of special attacks

Garchomp for a sweeper

Electivire for another sweeper.


The strategy is to send out (6v6) Ninjask. From there I use substitute, and normally the opponent will kill it. I use protect, speed again. Substitute, until I feel comfy with the speed, which then I will baton pass.

IF the opponent uses swords dance I will keep buffing speed, with substitute out I will use protect, and keep making subs on the turn he gets through my original sub. Baton Pass after good speed.

Now, let's say Charizard is on the field and I pass to Starmie. From there my options are:
-Surf
-Thunderbolt

Since the classic response a trainer's instinct is, "Oh, 1.5 x 2 = 3x the damage with water." I use thunderbolt. Most likely s/he will NOT switch to a ground type, 'cause he thinks Starmie will annihilate it with water. I will use thunderbolt most likely. BUT, if on the title screen I am facing someone I know, or someone who has loads of ground types, I'll use surf. Wondering about Grass? Ice beam.

Now for Blissey. If one of you could tell me where to get Power Whip I'd be happy. Anyways, Blissey will use Light Screen/Reflect and use substitute. Baton Pass, and you have a sub with 1/4 of 714 (assuming perfect IVs)
This will then increase my defences AND I will have a wall to attack from behind.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Nutshell:
-Where do I get power whip, toxic spikes, baton pass, explosion.
-Read my strategy above and critisize it.
-Hay is for Horsea

The first sweeper you mentioned should be Physical sweeper. Walls are pokemon with excellent stats in one of the defenses or even both. So for example, a careful snorlax EV'd in hp and special defense would be a special wall becasuse of its high special defense and hp. The same goes for defense..a forretress or cloyster is a good one. Ninjask should hold a pinch berry to go along with the speed boost. then baton pass away to a sweeper and well..sweep!

Secondly, you really gotta memorize the tms..xP there is 92 tms and 92 only. Just search it or something lol.

Thirdly, Blissey can't baton pass and it's almost never a good poke to sub with. Blissey NEEDS seismic toss, aromatherapy, and possibly counter. and softboild to heal itself. You can replace counter with another special attack or t-wave..

oh and also, spinners are pokemon with the move rapid spin. It gets rid of stealth rock, spikes, toxic spikes, wrap, fire spin, whirpool and etc.
