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.

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).



Ah, yeah. Most people go with offensive teams, I think.

PvE team for Platinum. Also, I like Eeveelutions.

Spoiler:
 

On a side note, i find that they are kinda unbalanced... Meh whatever, I only PvE most of the time anyway. PvP is with friends and family. (i usually win in double battle lol! )

(I should play Pokemon Online...)

In my battles with Astral yesterday, I went with my usual team...mostly an Offensive 'Jammer' team...tons of negative status effects and flinch-possibilities to keep my opponent guessing what I'll come up with next! Smile

What did you think, Astral?

I like the eveelutions, but I dislike that they were/are so underpowered. Most of them have shallow movepools (Flareon for example), and are usually limited to supporting roles (Batonpassers, notably).

If X and Y were to be released, I hope they change that trend.

Flareon is in UU tier. He's useless imo.

The only Eevelotuions I would consider using are probably Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Espeon.

The rest are all NU afaik with Umbreon being UU.

But I guess that's okay if you're playing with your family and whatnot.

Good luck winning online though.

You can grab the current simulator and loads of competitive information, strats, and metagame stats.

At: http://www.smogon.com/


I've been playing Random Battle on it. You get a random team with random levels and moves. Really fun.

Dude his stats are insane
They reach the 400s

Sure he may not be good as an Uber.

But he's going to DECIMATE the OU.

That typing though, and it's nowhere near as dangerous as a generic sweeper.

Still doesn't feel right in OU.

The real reason he got put into OU is because PO and Smogon deemed that his physical movepool isn't big enough to deem him as a threat (I googled around and people cried that Smogon hates Ice types lol).

My favorite typing is Dragon, but I think this is a bit unjust.

Oh he is?

Weird, nobody has made a guide for him yet then.

And if I can get my hands on my DS right now I'd check if he's unbanned off Wi-Fi battles but I can't find it. (He probably still is.)

The only reasoning I can think of is because his type. Kyurem himself was always so-so.

I actually have Black 2 and most of his movesets really don't take advantage of his ATK. My Black Kyurem is geared towards SP. ATK.

W-Kyurem is superior in almost every way possible.

Good news, good news~

There will be a new BW2 Global Link Event, starting from 20 mars till 6 may. A multiscale Dragonite, with the move thunderpunch will be given.




A new pokemon of X&Y has been released. It's a new eveelution!
Spoiler:
 
She's so adorable~ Her type hasn't been confirmed yet (I can't figure from the pic), nor has the way of evolution been released.

Hmm.... *looks carefully at the Eveelution pic*

...well, we can rule out Steel, Flying, Ground, Fighting, and Rock simply by appearance...if I had to guess, I'd say it's a more 'natural' Normal-type evolution...but we've been surprised before.... Smile

I actuallly expected steel or fighting. Dragon and Flying would be odd, as it wouldn't be the same as that typical eveelution look the eveelutions share.

My opinion about that new pokemon is in the spoilers, since it talks a bit about it.

New Eeveelution is known as Nymphia (AKA, most likely will be called Nympheon)
Nothing about it has really been released aside from height and weight x_x...
