1) What is ScarfChomp short for?
Choice Scarf Garchomp
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 and Heatran. Rock is still unresisted.
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?
That Ferrothorn is weak against Substitute Magnet Rise Magnezone because it's ability Magnet Pull traps it in, while it is easily able to set up a Substitute and Magnet Rise while Ferrorthorn can't really touch it. It's more than likely carrying HP Fire to kill it as well. You can't take out this Magnezone because Magnet Rise makes it immune to Ground type attacks like Earthquake temporarily.
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 break your sash the second you switch in, plus any weather effects will nullify it as well.
5) I have a Lucario with the following moveset:
SD/CC/ES/BP. Identify the moves, and give the set a fitting nickname.
SDLuke is cute with Swords Dance, Close Combat, Extremespeed, and Bullet Punch.
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 gets rid of the ability Levitate that Bronzong (most likely) has, so Mamo can hit it with Earthquake easily and kill it.
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?
The residual damage from both Life Orb and Sandstorm will wear your team down quickly.
