Archeops @ Flight Jewel
EV's: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

-Acrobatics

I'm pretty sure that's a standard Archeops set.

does the eviolite item boost slowbro's defenses? and does a grip claw extend moves like tail slap,bullet seed, and rock blast?

Just as the title says.
I'm IV breeding scythers and I realized that one of them have the characteristics "thoroughly cunning" and "happily eats anything".

What does it mean to have 2 characteristics and how do I know their IVs?

Thanks

Eviolite only works on pokemon that will evolve, so no it doesn't work on Slowbro.

Grip Claw does not affect moves such as doubelslap, bullet seed, rock blast, icicle spear, etc. Only moves like Wrap, Whirlpool, Fire Spin, etc. that cause "indirect" damage I guess you can call it.

The "Thoroughly Cunning" is the charactersitic. The "Happily eats anything" thing represents what Poffin flavor it likes, so in that case, it has no preference.

Also, only 1 characteristic can be displayed at a time, even if the Pokemon has 2 or more highest IVs.

@ vrai thanks =)

anyways heres another question. who is the best dual screens user?
since 5th gen brought new pokes and gave espeon magic bounce via DW perhaps bronzong is no longer the best or as good as it used to be ( i still think it gets the job done though)

i was thinking maybe magic bounce espeon or cryogonal would make good dual screen users but i want others opinions/thoughts/suggestions.

all help is appreciated =)

Trick room/ Will-o-wisp/ Energy Ball/ Psychic

Copypasta from Smogon. It's the calm mind set, yours looks vaguely similar.

Deoxys-S makes a very good dual-screener, being the fastest Pokemon ever. Bronzong still keeps a good spot in being a dual-screener, having incredible bulk and having 1 weakness, well two, but levitate. Cryogonal isn't good, it maybe fast but a physical attack of any kind will destroy it. Espeon can be a dual-screener, but it's not the best.

Whoa there, a little less on the slashes. XD

Trick Room is also viable, yes. Cohag's best set though is the CM one that dragonomega posted. :)

Espeon is useful, especially on hardcore smashpass teams. You can use Magic Bounce to prevent PHazing with teams like those and then smashpass away. Outside of smashpass, though, I think Deoxys-S is by far the best, as Dragon also mentioned. Cryogonal just isn't a very good Pokemon in general so I'd rather use a lot of other options before it. You can also sneak screens into [insert Psychic-type], like Reuniclus or Lati@s though it's generally not worth giving up a moveslot or two for those.

Run 252 HP / 252 Def - you'll be boosting SpD and SpA anyway so they don't matter. You should use Hidden Power Fighting for perfect coverage with Shadow Ball.

Here is our online ban list. In wifi battles, I guess this is the ban list (just did a quick google search so not 100% sure):

Mewtwo
Mew
Lugia
Ho-oh
Celebi
Kyogre
Groudon
Rayquaza
Jirachi
Deoxys
Chatot
Dialga
Palkia
Giratina
Phione
Manaphy
Darkrai
Shaymin
Arceus
Victini
Reshiram
Zekrom
Kyurem
Keldeo
Meloetta
Genesect

and Phione and Chatot. Hope that helps. ;(

Hey everyone! Sorry for the newb question but I am a newb

What game are you playing where you battle each other? At the top of this forum there is an announcement about PC hosting their own battling server? How do I connect to this?

Thanks!

well, we use a pokémon game for the usual battling of course. we also have a pokémon online server that we use for both battling and chatting. there is a download link in that announcement. after downloading, make a team in team builder, go online, and select our server. hope to see you there!

Hey everyone! I'm wondering what a good moveset would be for Gliscor. I would like to keep it as physically defensive and supportive as possible.

I had this in mind:

Gliscor @ Toxic Orb
Poison Heal (Hyper Cutter?)
252 HP / 252 Defense / 4 Speed
Jolly [+Speed; -Sp.Attack] / Impish [+Defense; -Sp.Attack]
- Ice Fang / Stealth Rock
- Earthquake / Stone Edge
- Acrobatics
- Fling / Protect / Toxic / Knock-Off / Roostadfkasdfkasdhagn

I heard that Hyper Cutter is good with Baton Passing variants of Gliscor, but I'm not gunna go there right now. ;-;

As you can see it's kind of a cluster-fluff. So I'd like some help! :3

Thanks guys!

Well Stealth Rock with Poison Heal is illegal, so that's not an option.

Fling goes really well with Acrobatics because you'll get that base power boost, as well as with Protect and EQ.

EQ and Ice Fang are fairly standard on most sets (especially Swords Dance).

Another set that's common is Sub / Protect / Toxic / EQ; You can actually heal off sub damage after a sub / protect because poison heal does 12.5% instead of the leftie's 6.25%.

As for EVs and Nature:

252 HP / 184 Def / 72 Spe
With Impish is standard on all sets.

@dreyko: You have to get the Magnemite's IVs to produce a Hidden Power Fire. This would require an IV spread similar to this one: 31 / 30 / 31 / 30 / 31 / 30
