    I relied on power items a lot back in White, before Join Avenue came along. Even in White 2, I used them a bit for EV training because of some of the limitations of my Join Avenue. They're extremely useful in IV breeding, though it's still a tedious process in my experience. But Super Training is amazing; using it, I've somewhat EV-trained my in-game team. I definitely agree that the graph is super useful too. And I've even made use of the berry fields to farm EV-reducing berries to reset some EVs a little.

    The power items were kind of worthless to me. Join Avenue was excellent. Super Training helps so much more, though. I love having a graph that actually shows what EVs I've got.

    Yeah, they've made EV training a lot easier as each generation passes, that's for sure. And I thought the power items and Join Avenue did wonders for it already.

    I breed for moves and natures more than IVs. With the new Super Training feature, I can max out stuff easier than old fashion EV training. I still spend hours raising Pokemon, but the stat gains are drastically higher than I've ever gotten them.

    Ah, I thought so! I haven't bred anything in this game yet, but I'm about ready to start. Gotta familiarize myself with the changes to breeding first, I guess.

    No, I went through the process of breeding her to get a baby with Adamant nature instead of Brave nature. It made a huge difference for Speed and Attack. Also, that Mienshao kept her mother's ability.

    Haha, same here! :D Sneaky strategy there. If I recall from our first battle, your mienshao had U-turn and Regenerator, though I can't be sure that's the same mienshao.

    I just don't like making it look like I'm just trying to overpower people. I focus on strategized attacking. Even if a move isn't super-effective type-wise, I still use it so long as it causes significant damage. Also, I had a whole Weasel Roundabout strategy I wanted to use with Mienshao and Zoroark. Illusion and U-Turn are good for confusing people by switching between two Pokemon that look the same.

    Ah! U-turn is fun to play around with. Though I'd say Night Daze was probably the right choice to make at the time.

    U-turn. I was going to have Zoroark use it off the bat and switch to Aegislash, but it's hard to resist picking off a Meowstick right away. Taking out a Psychic or Ghost type is usually my first priority. I use Zoroark/Mienshao to bait people into switching to one if I see one. It's good for taking down Gengar, Mewtwo, Alakazam, etc.

    That speed screwed me over twice; I knew I should've gone for Thunder Wave! :P A steady wear down? How so?

    Jolly nature helps. I didn't mean to go all out attack, though. I was trying to do a steady wear down, but opportunistic attacks work too, I guess.

    Hahaha, good battle! I had no idea about Aegislash's speed.

    Ack, sorry... I logged off for the night a little bit before you replied. I'll try and catch you next chance I get. I'm usually on after 7:00PM CST.
