    sims, ultimately you wouldn't achieve anything with Focus Punch, either Blissey Softboils or STosses damaging your switchin and ultimately negating Typhlosion. The Stealth Rock weakness is what I would be concentrating on as it arguably takes away Typhlosion's only merit over Heatran - Eruption. Stealth Rock is ubiquitous in the game and even if Typhlosion would scare away the common SR setuppers you cannot gurantee that for the rest of the battle the opponent would not find a chance to set up Stealth Rock.

    Now, I'm not saying that Typhlosion sucks outright, just that it is outclassed by Heatran as a whole when running a Scarf set. Heatran also has Earth Power in comparison to Typhlosion's Earthquake able to snare enemy Heatrans. Like I said in the situation before, it wouldn't do too much to Blissey besides guranteeing a free switchin, but in my opinion Heatran would contribute better with Explosion.

    I say Stealth Rock contribute a lot to my stand against Typhlosion, if you could keep Rocks away (and any kind of entry hazards), Typhlosion gets to keep a full-powered Eruption and blast away with it.

    I feel the Specs set is superior simply because of both Blaze and Eruption, at full health Eruption would do 33% min to Calm 176 SpD Bliss, which is a KO if it is below 66% health. A predicted Focus Blast would do 35% min to the same Bliss (darnit ObiBliss) which is a KO if it is below 70% health.

    More importantly is the fact that Blaze powers up Fire moves if below 1/3 health, meaning that Fire Blast would do even more than Eruption, 40% min on Bliss.

    But wait, Bliss isn't the only thing that would attempt to come in on Typhlosion. It nets a kill with HP Ice/Grass on Bulky Waters and Dragons (which I think you have HP Grass?), Heatran gets hit by Focus Blast

    Not to mention Blazed Fire Blast or full HP Eruption are both stronger than SpecsMence's Draco Meteor (albeit resisted by more types, but it is made up for by the rest of Typhlosion's attacks).

    But the same thing still stands for Typhlosion, keep it away from Stealth Rock.

    I hope I did it correctly sims.

    Okay, I'll play around with the EVs a bit on Shoddy and see what happens.

    Yeah, I used Corss Chop Again, D_A reccomended Guts @ Cross Chop, however I always liked the notion of using Confusion to force switches, especially once the rocks are down. Conflict of opinions again D=

    Hi Anti, I'm adding a Resttalk Machamp to my team (see my RMT for more) and I need to know about it's EV spread. D_A reccommended a straight 252 HP/252 Attack spread, but I do agree with what you siad in another RMT about him having low defences. I'm currently breeding Machop, so I just wondered about your thoughts on him before I train.

    No problem. I talk better on paper, but I talk far too fast IRL.

    I hate texting.

    But that's right, FOCUS MOAR. flat out saying "BLissey suxs! It has"--(well, you know) get's you flamed by seven people. Saying Blissey suxs! It has...even if it has leik, 125 Sp.Def (I just can't remember her stats in detail)" still makes you look like a noob, but a noob with a valid opinion.

    This is fun, talking about non pogey stuff. And, whether you noticed it or not, you are doing the exact same thing I said you were supposed to do in a debate. Checkmate. I kick azz.

    Now, onto Gya. I am putting a team together, as I said, this time actually getting every one of my favs (who I want on my permenant team) together, and categorizing them. I needed to know aboot LO Gya because I want to see if it would be my main sweeper. I categorize them like this:

    Sweeper, Physical
    Sweeper, Special
    Wall, Physical
    Wall, Special
    Alternative (Tank [both], Spinner, Mixed sweeper, Stealth Rocker/Spiker, etc)

    Cleric is ALWAYS there, since I'm keeping Vileplume. I've also settled on Raichu, for sentementail reasons (reminds me of my childhood). As the sp.sweeper, of course. Long story short, I'm looking at phy wall section. LO Gya sounds great. But as a main attacker? Is that good?

    I say that because it Sceptile is (or was) on the list for physical sweeper. However, I bumped it on to Alt (back up seeper) because I can only sweep with a SD under my belt. That is hard. However, it is much easer to get a DD from Gya, and he can hit harder. So, the REAL question is:

    Can I rely on him as the main offensive force? Status is no problem.

    no Gyarados's DD set is good. It's grown a ton in popularity.

    And eventually was the wrong word. You debate stuff obviously, you just focus on those horrible physical stats if you think Blissey sucks for some reason. The other person focuses on its ability to special wall.

    I am honestly having a lot of trouble wording what I am trying to say

    "Well yeah you're going to dispute them, the idea is to minimize the other side's poistion as much as possible while inflating your own in a way."

    Exactly. Flat out ignoring them isn't the right way. Just because a politician does it (which is called mudslinging) doesn't mean we all shoud. Bush does that. DO YOU?

    "You could easily make a claim that Blissey sucks looking at that, but anybody could destroy it bringing up what Blissey could do as a special wall, so you'd be quickly beaten down in argument. You can make any claim, but both sides will eventually be brought up anyways so you're not going to weaken your own argument listing all the positives."

    You kinda counterd yourself there on that one, at least the first sentence. Both side being bought up "eventually" is still the childs way of doing things (I hate chillins :D). I don't mean LIST, I mean BEAT. Debate. Bring em up, and explain why they are bad. The first sentence makes no sense unless you explain why the bads are bad, and why the goods aren't all that good in the first place.

    Obama does that. DO YOU?

    I'm not trying to make yaw'll feel bad, but that's how adult conversations are made. DO YOU? I'm an english major, or minor, or something. Since I'm in a cooking school, I don't know wha tI'm doing anymoar.

    Unless your primary adjective is to bash, then I don't mind. If your gonna do it, do it all the way. Just let me bash Shuckle. He SUCKS.

    "And DD Gyarados is right on Smogon there sims "

    I don't need the set (Dark gave it to me), but you didn't give me a clear answer.

    If D-Nite does it better, does that mean Gya flat out fails with it? I need to know, because yaw'll play shoddy, and experienced it moar.

Yeah, this is it for me. Five years ago today, I joined PC. Now my time here is coming to a close a half a decade later.

I won't go too in-depth here besides to say that my battling skills (and interest, to some degree) have eroded to the point where they couldn't be salvaged without time and effort that I can no longer muster. Furthermore, it just hasn't been all that fun for several years now for a ton of different reasons I do not wish wish to list, and having fun is the point...

This blog won't be very long. I obviously haven't posted many of these. Yeah, school can be a pain when you have a lot of homework and not a lot of energy.

Anyway, I originally thought that the second iteration of Stage 3 (to use Smogon's wording) would just be Manaphy and the already-OU Latias...and that's how it was going to be. But now Garchomp is being added into the test according to Jumpman, I would assume due to the close 44-41 vote in favor of it being Uber.


Posted September 12th, 2009 at 02:44 PM by Anti Comments 5
I figured I'd have some fun and predict the Stage 3 voting results. You can post some too if you'd like. I'll probably be wrong on about all of these, but I thought I'd have some fun so why not?

Shaymin-S - Uber

I think this will be voted Uber, actually. I think people are afraid of hax and afraid of Skymin's power and Speed. I actually don't blame them--it's a pretty effective Pokemon. I just wish...

They have finally been released, and you can find them here. I'm glad they're out, especially since I contributed to them this time around :3

The biggest "shocker" to me was Blissey at number 14 (if you include the Rotom formes, which I will do for this whole entry). How the mighty have fallen. Blissey is probably the best defensive Pokémon in the game, and it's not even close to the top ten. As a user of Blissey, my guess is that Blissey being vulnerable to Trick as well...

I know, long time, no see, right? People often complain about how S&M is dead, and while there isn't much we can do about that (after all, we cannot control who decides to frequent in the section), I figured that I might as well start using this again to maybe, possibly start some discussion. Honestly, I am still a bit puzzled by the failure of the Metagame Discussion Thread, and the best conclusion I can come to is that it failed because it was too bland or boring in some way. Hopefully I can...
