OOOO I love questionaires. I think I can answer most of them.

2) CeleTran is a nickname for an infamous combination of two pokemon that damned near resist every type together. Which two pokemon make up this combo, and which type(s) do they not resist?
Celebi + Heatran. Together they resist everything except Rock type moves.
3) For some reason, my opponent keeps yelling in the chat that "Your Ferro is no match for my SubRise Zone". What is he talking about, and why should I be vary, especially if my main way of taking out steels is by using EarthQuake?
[B]Magnezone gets a free Substitute against Ferrothorn and can then use Magnet Rise to make itself immune to Ground type moves for a number of turns. Plus, Magnezone has a great SpA stat that can threaten any team without a strong Fire or Fighting move once it gets a Magnet Rise.B]
4) Why is it in general not the best idea to put a Focus Sash on a pokemon that doesn't lead off in a battle?
Entry hazards like Spikes or damage weather Sandstorm will remove the Sash upon switch in making it useless.
5) I have a Lucario with the following moveset:
SD/CC/ES/BP. Identify the moves, and give the set a fitting nickname.
Swords Dance / Close Combat / Extreme Speed / Bullet Punch. Nickname is the OU EXTREME KILLER.
6) My opponent used the move Gravity a few turns past, and is currently using a Mamoswine. Why would it be a bad idea to switch my Bronzong into it, which otherwise would wall its STABs completely?
Gravity makes Levitate users such as Bronzong susceptible to Ground type attacks.
7) Why is it in general not necessarily the best idea to put a lot of Life Orbs as held items on a team with Tyranitar?
I do that all the time 0_o... well Sandstream + Life Orb will make your Pokemon's life short if they're not immune to Sand damage.
