Claydol is my support/special wall. Typical double screen setup.

NONE of these pokemon are hacked! I apologize for shouting but my first competitive team had a shiny Skarmory, dusknoir, and metagross and I was constantly accused of hacking. I worked extremely hard on these pokemon and I'm overwhelmingly proud of that steelix. The baltoy for thay claydol took some time too hahaha.

So theres my first real competitive team. I've put a lot of thought and effort into every one of those pokemon.

Your team looks good, but I'll give Cloyster some options to consider:
-Explosion to let it take down tough (non-Rock/Ghost/Steel) walls
-Ice Shard to pick off weakened opponents
-Toxic Spikes for another entry hazard

I'd also give it the Focus Sash to help ensure it survives a hit and sets up a hazard.

Wow. I mean wow. Those IVs are very interesting. It's nice to see trainers putting so much detail into their pokemon.

Tell me, do you RNG? How did you go about catching your houndoom for instance?

I bought an insane amount of repeat balls to catch my Houndoom. Breeding would have.been a lot laser but I wanted some of my pokemon to be in a different ball. So I spent a really long time catching Houndoor. It took me an absurd amount of time. My baltoy took me a lot longer though. All together this team has taken me an insane amount of time but that's because I'm a perfectionist. I do get accused of.hacking a lot which is why I quit using my OU team so hopefully since I only ended up with 1 shiny this time around I won't get harassed as much as I did before. The key to my success though is I spent an absolutely unfathomable amount of time catching ditto's with a perfect IV in one stat so those dittos help tremendously. But yeah baltoy and Houndoom were just an immense amount of time catching the same pokemon repeatedly with the pokeball I wanted them in. I'VE SEEN SO MANY BALTOYS! strangely though I failed to run into any shiny pokemon while looking for my baltoy and houndour. all of my shinies are either from trades or from breeding. The only shiny I've ever caught was my metgross which has incredible IV's so he's my pride and joy hahaha. But like I said I'm a perfectionist so these these IV's came from an immense amount of time catching and breeding with and those dittos did help because I have a ditto for speed, HP, attack, etc. Those dittos took what use to take a month or two of breeding every spare chance I get which is a lot I live in the middle of nowhere seriously courage the cowardly dog is my neighbor haha. I just hope I don't get accused of hacking again because I put a lot of time into those pokemon. I just hope I didn't mess the EV spreads up.

Instead of using someone else's thread for questions, you can just use the Request a Moveset / Simple Q&A thread.

I only kept the ones with the nature I wanted. I just got unimaginably lucky with Claydol. That Claydol was probably one in a million. I'm never getting rid of him.
