With pokémon being limited to 151, these are the pokémon I will most likely face: Charizard, Venusaur, snorlax, any of the three legendary birds, gengar, aerodactyl, dragonite, arcanine and blastoise. I know this because some people already revealed their teams and these ones seemed to be populair among them.

Now, I probably made a lot of mistakes. I haven't played for three-four years so feedback is defo welcome! If you have any idea's to switch a certain pokémon...let me know :)

Good luck!

Lol!

Thanks for catching that Spartan! I wouldn't want to mess anything up. I saw the Abilities and whatnot and thought, "Why wouldn't he use this stuff?!" xD

Guess I got a little over zealous. Disregard my post then.

Sorry 'bout that! :3

Hey me again, I frogot to mention a couple of things:

-I HAVE to use atleast one starter. That's one of the rules

-We don't have to use Gen. I moves (I know)

So your help is still appreciated :3 Sorry for my late reply (tournament is in a week)

It'd be better if you explained why it's the best Gen 1 Rapid Spinner. :3 Personally, I always thought Blastoise was the better rapid spinner due to the better typing. (Cloyster only resists 2 types and is weak to 4. It's vice versa for Blastoise.) Also, Blastoise has a much better Sp.Def and an already decent Defense. Blastoise and Tentacruel are both better because they actually have a way to get rid of ghost types. (They get Foresight and Hex, respectively.) If you want an offensive Rapid Spinner, then you can use Starmie.

I know, I'm sorry. I was in a super big hurry when I posted that and I never came back to fix it like I said I would. ;____;

And considering that you need a to use a starter Pokemon, than Blastoise can totally work for you. Spino already gave excellent supporting reasons so, at the risk of stating the obvious again, I'll leave it at that.

For the sake of thoroughness, let me state why Gengar likes Focus Blast.


Gengar @ Life Orb
Levitate
252 Sp.Attack / 252 Speed / 4 Sp.Defense
Timid [+Speed; -Attack]
- Protect
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Focus Blast
- Shadow Ball

Focus Blast goes well with Shadow Ball for near perfect neutral coverage. But most importantly, Focus Blast can get super effective hits on Ghost resistant / immune Pokemon like Snorlax, Tyranitar, and Heatran. Gengar can have a lot of problems with Metagross and Scizor, which can be helped by HP Fire as it will 2HKO and OHKO the two respectively. I'd also like mention that Protect could be switched for Thunder Bolt for super effective hits on the likes of Starmie, Gyarados.. etc.

Allow me to also clean up Machamp a bit.


Machamp @ Lum Berry
No Guard
252 Attack / 240 HP / 16 Speed
Adamant [+Attack; -Sp.Attack]
- Dynamic Punch
- Bullet Punch
- Payback
- Stone Edge


The beauty of this set is No Guard. Any attack has 100% accuracy, combined with Dynamic Punch and Stone Edge, it's a pretty devastating blow. Bullet Punch will make Machamp's horrible Speed obsolete. Payback hits anything that resists Fighting and has near perfect coverage with Dynamic Punch. The same applies with Stone Edge, which will hit Gyarados ridiculously hard.. Plus, No Guard completely compensates for Stone Edge's shaky accuracy. Again, a seriously lethal combination. Just as another option, Ice Punch can work really well on this set in place of Stone Edge. A x2 super effective Ice Punch has the same power as a neutral Dynamic Punch. I'd also like to revise my EV spread here, investing 252 into Attack and HP is the way to go. I suppose you can invest 124 EVs into Speed to outspeed Skarmory, but it's not really worth it.

I hope that cleared stuff up a bit. Good luck in your tournament! :D
