Yay, Pokémon:
 
I had to retype this entire thing twice. I did it for the Eeveelutions.

These are just some of them.

Does anyone play on PO? I used to play awhile ago and I kinda want a battle or two
oh and I play black/white wifi OU tier

I played on Netbattle and then stopped and then played on Shoddy Battle and then stopped and then on PO and then stopped.

I would be up for that. Maybe sometime this weekend? If you're busy, some other time would be good.

I don't like anything slow and tankey = v= Hence why my two favorite pokemon have high SPEED and SP ATk / ATK stats, respectively. Lol.

I tend to go pure balance with teams...a 'jack of all trades, master of none' setup...I always prefer to have as many options on the table as possible! Very Happy

For example, my current team in White 2 consists of Serperior, Lapras, Electrode, Arcanine, Lucario, and Altaria, with a wide variety of moves built-in...; granted, I'm not even close to being a competitive battler(screw meta, I march to my own beat, thanks), but I still enjoy friendly battles as well as trading with anyone who's willing...

...and yes, that's a hint...toss me a message if you're interested! Cool

Just got done with some trades and a pair of battles vs Astral.... Smile

The 1st battle was a Single battle(lv 50); I got very lucky with a 1st turn Paralyze, thanks to a Thunderbolt from Electrode, and pretty much ate her team alive after that.... Twisted Evil

The 2nd battle was a Double battle(lv 50); this one got ugly right off the bat, and she dropped 2 of my team in the 1st 2 turns...somehow, I got it together, and pulled out a win...wish I had a way to put the battle on Youtube...I saved it to my Vs. Recorder, but have no way to transfer it, heh.

Still, I was sweating bullets for a bit in that 2nd battle, Astral...thanks! Happy Icy

If anyone wants to play, I can only play on Pokemon Online due to my dismal internet connection derping on me every single time I online battle with the DS so if anyone wants to hit me up, I'd be more than willing to battle.

You got really lucky both of those rounds - The paralysis, the confusion, the CONSTANT flinching - And my luck was about as poor as it ever was.

I tend to use moves that trade power for some kind of secondary effect like that...also, Electrode was holding a Razor Fang...so it's speed all but guaranteed a 1st strike option, plus the flinch/paralyze/confusion factors...; I was having a hard time deciding which items to put on who!

I gather you'll get revenge on me next time! tongue

Huhu, you better believe it. Too bad I considered Azelf and Terrakion legendaries (even though they're not banned legendaries) or I would have used them xD

Maybe next time we'll have to adjust our own rules.... Very Happy

As soon as I saw the world Azelf, I had several counter-possibilities pop into my head(including Pokemon not presently in my main team)...; haven't seen Terrakion used enough to have anything ready for it yet, heh.

...I'm much better at devising strategy and tactics than actually fighting...probably explains why I'm not so good at Cosmic Break outside of Support bots, eh? Question

Azelf isnt so much of a problem anymore thanks to the Explosion nerf making its scouting and lead sets being heavily nerfed. But it;s still a pretty good attacker. I think I remember Azelf being UU but I'm not sure.

Terrakion on the other hand has huge attack and to top it off, gets stab Close Combat and Stone Edge, making it a powerful physical force. It even gets Swords Dance (iirc) and Earthquake. Not a lot of things can take hits from a Terrakion and come off fine. Golurk is a decent counter, resisting Stone Edge, taking decent damage from Earthquake due to its sizable bulk and is immune to Close Combat. However, he's not super bulky so you can't take THAT many hits seeing as how Terrakion hits anything more massive damage.

I primarily like playing in the UU tier. Lots of fun and I don't have to worry about the team composition primarily full of Scizors, Ferrothorns and TTars. (Actually, nowadays, weather is a common problem)

Much more variety in UU.

Rain is a bigger problem in OU, anyways.

You're forgetting how Terrakion also has insane speed, while also having decent SP DEF and DEF. If you pair it with a Tyrannitar, it's SP DEF is raised even higher, essentially making Terrakion a massive, barreling truck.

One strategy I like to use is having a Ninjask constantly use Protect/Substitute while raising it's SPEED. Then once I have the SPEED stat maxed, I'll use Baton Pass and switch out for one of my high ATK pokemon (Usually Terrakion).

Terrakion is used often enough on HO teams.

I'd watch out for Roar/Whirlwind, Haze, and Unaware, but they don't see much use.

Working off a previous Pokemon I had, I'm presently raising a Haze-Vaporeon meant for just such a stat-change buster situation...it'll be a little while before it's ready, though.... Very Happy

Also planning a Hydration-Gorebyss and a Pickpocket-Shiftry as well as considering potential hotswaps for my Altaria that would need to be at least part Dragon-type and -not- horribly overused! Idea

I predict he will enter uber tier soon. ( He really should, if they've already sent stuff like Garchomp and Blaziken there. Heck even regenerator Tornadus has been sent there o.o ) Then again he's countered by stuff like Slowbro, Gliscor, Mew, Jellicent, Reuniclus, Hippowdon, Scizor, Azumarill, Conkeldurr, Latios, Tornadus, Gengar, Starmie, Dugtrio, Wobbuffet, and choice scarf Rotom-w and Landorus. Oddly enough the best counters are in the lower tiers.

Reli, roar and whirlwind are often used for stall teams and racking up passive damage (tho prankster taunt makes the choice shift to dragon tail).

Never played PO and never played the games competitively, though I used to be really into Pokemon when D/P came out. And welp, I love too many Pokemon, so I'll just put 10 of my top favorites here... ;_;

Spoiler:
 

The Pokemon I tend to use online are usually UU/NU, because I go 90% on how much I like them, not actual team balance. ; _ ; When I'm just playing through I don't care about stats in any way at all, but they usually end up UU/NU Pokemon anyway.
Oh yeah, favorite Gen 6 starter is Chespin (i think that's his name, the grass one).
