    I agree that it's mostly offense-based. Yeah. Drizzle+Swift Swim teams in general, or just Politoed/Vaporeon?

    Edit: nvm. Just read it. Heh. And Sand Veil/Storm Cloak too. Hmm.. 1 strategy for weather teams lost.

    I think it's pretty offensive-based, with a lot more insane heavy hitters out there. Some of the new Dream World abilities have really mixed it up well, but I find it annoying how Smogon has banned Drizzle+Swift Swim teams. However I still understand why they did it, heh.

    Ouch. That's a rather ingenious plan though. So what do you think about the metagame this time around?

    I used the Dream World a handful of times with my Japanese White. But I stopped using it before the English games came out, and I haven't used it since.

    My staple team is one of mixed weather. I trick the opponent into thinking I have one type, get rid of my counters for the other, and then switch to that. I won a lot of battles like that, but it's now impossible to do with Team Preview.

    Yeah I forgot about gruesome DW can be. After I found that it was somewhat random, I didn't touch it. And I do agree with the Team Preview issue, especially with a obvious Trick Room team >.>

    I was referring to the Dream World abilities making it increasingly more tedious to get some awesome Pokémon. That and Team Preview defeats the purpose of my "Surprise!"=type teams. =/

    This is true. It's almost unnecessary with the forever TMs, and the metagame being so Earthquake.

    If I start breeding again, it'll be with X & Y. I find the 5th Gen a lost cause in that regard.

    Yeah that's understandable. I've jumped on PO myself. Although later on in the summer, it's a good chance I may have to start breeding. It all depends on the work schedule though.

    I hope and expect a few people will return in the coming months, what with X and Y coming out. And no, I have given up on breeding and EV training due to time constraints, and I've switched to PO. How about you?
