You finished Emerald with a team of 100s? All I needed was a Swampert lv 64 @Leftovers, Surf, Earthquake, Ice Beam, Muddy Water.

Blimey, it must take weeks to get a whole team to level 100. How on earth did you have the patience? XD

Yeah, tends to happen to me too, until recently. I mean come on, if you're not being extra cautious (aka nuzlocking) there's really no point in being the proper level. For instance my Level 61 HG Slaking can kick Red's Snorlax's butt.

You actually trained a Slaking? That sounds so tedious paha, was it worth it?

Still am training a Slaking as a matter of fact. Slaking is so worth it in Singleplayer. That Attack stat is monstrous, and you can use the nose laser trick if you're playing with shift.

Did I mention I trained him since he was a level 13 Slakoth?

Slaking has a lot of untapped potential that can be used if you tried. Maybe not so much competitively but hey.

I like Slaking just because I can. I don't use it in the games despite it high attack stat, but Traunt is just ridiculous. Slaking is very relaxed, so that's why I like it. It was also a sloth before they were cool

I always figured Truant would just make him a boring one to use haha. What kind of moves do you guys give him for an in-game team to keep it interesting?

As far as I know there's a way to get around Truant by using Cohagrigus and it's Mummy ability. That's a method people use in competetive play at least.

The one time Cohagrigus is useful for anything that doesn't involve him being a complete wall.

For movesets, my HG singleplayer Slaking has Rock Climb, Shadow Claw, Earthquake and Hammer Arm. Rock Climb is an HM and I like it because of the confusion chance, Shadow Claw is mandatory for ghosting, Earthquake is... just VERY POWERFUL and Hammer Arm is dat coverage.

I believe back in R/S/E before the Physical/Special split Hyper Beam was a very good move for Slaking because of high attack + STAB + it'll be recharging on the turn its loafing around anyways.

Ahah, did anyone actually use Cohagrigus on a team with Slaking to get the effects to collide like that?

Giga Impact would be the replacement since Hyper Beam is special now.

I haven't use a Cohagrigus or a Slaking so no I haven't. But it's the easiest way (in single battle) to get an ability off of any Pokemon with a crappy one like Regigigas, Archeops, etc. In Double battles there is that and there is also Skill Swap (which I think was the primary way before Cohagrigus and the Mummy ability).

Little did I know that Traunt was spelled Truant...

I haven't been keeping up with abilities after gen. 3 haha
I always hope for ones like Static, Poison Point, Cute Charm, etc. that can cause status conditions, or Keen Eye, Hyper Cutter, Clear Body, etc. that prevent stat reduction.

In Colo, there's a battle where the enemy opens with Slowking and Slaking, first thing Slowking does is Skill Swap Slaking.

Oh wow that's really cool, I didn't know they'd put so much thought into teams like that - especially in spin-off games. I wish they'd do that in the main games for gym leaders/E4, they get boring being so rubbish with their Pokémon :p

I don't think they'll change it in the future. It rather seems like they will make things even easier, because of casualization and stuff.

And even if they'd change something I hope it's the trainers that still use unevolved Pokemon. That's one thing that's annoying me quite some time. I mean imagine: you beat the Pokemon League and now you're out to do some postgame and the first person you encounter is a trainer with a Lv. 62 Magikarp.
Also this applys to trainers before the Pokemon League, too.

I like the Magikarp guys. They're so... staple-y.

63.

That was actually what I was thinking about when I brought up Skill Swap since I finished watching Chuggaa's let's play of Colo just the other day haha.

I like them too and they can be put to good use while EV Training since it's easy speed EVs. But on the other hand I like them earlier in the game and not later in the game where their Magikarps are level 64.

And Youngster Joey. We must always have our Youngster Joey and his counterparts or whatever.

I think you skipped one! I don't mind the trainers that use awful Pokémon, I just wish they wouldn't use them awfully. It's no fun when a trainer could do well against you and give you a challenge but then decide to splash around and growl at you.
