No Rock Polish? Really? I was thinking that it would be good for when I'm using Psycho Cut, but hey, you guys know best. I guess since Conkledurr is so slow I don't need to be much faster.

Haha, I'm sorry, that was supposed to be a joke. I guess I just forgot that I'm too new for everyone to get my sense of humor.

Not that you guys don't *get* me.

Cacturne (f) – Focus Sash (If intending to lead, otherwise probably leftovers)
Sand Veil
252 Attack (or sp atk if opting for Energy Ball) / 4 HP / 252 Speed
-Sucker Punch / Seed Bomb / Energy Ball
-Magic Coat
Wow, that's really cool! Thanks for the detailed list of possibilities.

That's funny, cause my Hydreigon has like.. no similarities to your suggestions. With the exception of Dark Pulse. I ended up using Earth Power and Dragon Pulse- which I like.. then again, I seem to like things that work *against* me in competitive battling.

I used to run Shed Skin but now I use Moxie with leftovers.
I ended up using Fire Punch on my Scrafty instead of Ice Punch. I feel like I should post of the details of all my Dark Pokemon so you guys can critic them but that would be ridiculous.. and probably a little embarrassing..

Thanks for some effective guidelines I can use on my Hydreigon and Scrafty. It's great having some food for thought on all this stuff. :D

Jeez this is like my 3rd day as a member of the PC and everyone has just been so great to me. I feel like I've learned so much and really challenged myself. Pokemon got so tired and boring after all my friends refused to battle me anymore, so knowing that I still have a long way to go is really rewarding in a strange way.

Thanks again!
