    So if clans function in the same way I remember, I can ask my fellow members for team help, correct?

    Basically, currently I'm trying to run a Hyper Offensive team without screens. It's worked out relatively well so far.

    Spoiler:
    @Lum Berry
    Adamant
    No Guard
    240 HP / 248 Atk / 16 SpD / 4 Spe
    ~ DynamicPunch
    ~ Payback
    ~ Bullet Punch
    ~ Ice Punch

    More or less just a powerful, tank-ish, Pokemon. I lead with him most of the time, though with team preview I often switch around my team, too. I'd say it's a 60-40 split, with Champ being the lead usually. DynamicPunch is great. Even if it's resisted, the confusion helps out a lot. Payback for pesky ghosts like Gengar (Champ can usually take a hit and then OHKO with Payback). Payback is my only dark move on the team however, and I often find myself with no answer to the annoying pixie thing. More or less I just keep attacking till it dies, which can take awhile.. I rely too much on confusion's hax, too..

    @Life Orb
    Adamant
    Inner Focus
    4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    ~ Swords Dance
    ~ Close Combat
    ~ ExtremeSpeed
    ~ Ice Punch

    I love this guy If the situation allows, I have set up a single SD and proceeded to sweep a whole team with Lucario alone. I'm thinking of switching Ice Punch out for Crunch, since Payback on Machamp is my only other dark move on the team. By the same token, Ice Punch is my only Ice attack on the whole team.. I can deal with MS Dragonites with Haxorus, but Gliscor.. Extremespeed is just awesome. At +2, even a neutral Extremespeed will deal a chunk of damage to things like.. I can't think of the name right now, but I'm pretty sure it's another one of those stupid pixie things.

    @Life Orb
    Adamant
    Technician
    252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    ~ Swords Dance
    ~ Bullet Punch
    ~ Superpower
    ~ Bug Bite

    Like, seriously? Do I really need to give you an explanation for this guy? He's Scizor. That's all you need to know.

    @Life Orb
    Adamant
    Moxie
    252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
    ~ Dragon Dance
    ~ Waterfall
    ~ Stone Edge
    ~ Earthquake

    Another great Poke. He's kind of like my clutch player. When all else fails, send out Gyarados and pray for the best. Bulky enough to take a hit and DD up. After which, you better hide. Because this guy has decimated entire teams in 7 turns.. After a DD and a KO, hell, after a DD, Gyarados will usually OHKO whatever is sent in against it. From there on, the other team is pretty much dead, since with every passing turn, Gyarados just becomes that much stronger.

    @Lum Berry
    Adamant
    Mold Breaker
    36 HP / 252 Atk / 220 Spe
    ~ Dragon Dance
    ~ Outrage
    ~ Earthquake
    ~ Brick Break

    I needed an Electric resist for synergy with Gyarados.. But Haxorus has not disappointed whatsoever. What a monster. After a Dragon Dance, he is scary. Very scary. Great coverage. Hits hard.

    @Lum Berry
    Adamant
    Multiscale
    252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
    ~ Dragon Dance
    ~ Outrage
    ~ Fire Punch
    ~ Earthquake

    My favorite Pokemon since RBY. With 5th Gen, looks like he's finally getting the recognition he deserves :D On a serious note, he is just as good, if not better than Haxorus late game. While Haxorus isn't hurt as much by Stealth Rocks, if the opponent uses Spikes instead, or only has Spikes/Toxic Spikes up, Dragonite isn't affected at all. Very useful indeed. Outrage hits everything but Steel hard. Fire Punch for Steel and Ices. Earthquake mostly for Heatran and a second powerful attack that doesn't lock me in. I'm considering testing out Extremespeed, though, because setting up, sweeping, and then getting taken out by a priority move is annoying..


    I'm not sure if I've told you guys this but I usually prefer to not use legendaries. But I'm just about ready to suck up my pride and chuck a Terrakion on the team if someone suggests so haha

      6 physical attackers isn't good at all if you bump in to a physical wall like Ferrothorn off the top of my head. I'd reccomend you try the Special set for Lucario;

      Lucario @ Life Orb
      Modest nature
      Inner Focus
      4HP | 252Sp.Atk | 252 Spe
      ~ Nasty Plot
      ~ Aura Sphere
      ~ Dark Pulse
      ~ Vacuum Wave

      Still great type coverage, stat boosting move and priority. Just on the Special side of things.

      You should probably just post it in the main board for three times the attention! You can always advertise here...or just post the whole thing if you really really prefer it.

      For the team, I would put in a dual screener over one of your physical attackers since the defenses are a bit thin. ...Or at the very least a choice scarfer. Priority and Gyarados Intimidate is about it for defense atm

              The Prodigal Son returns! Welcome back

              Oh and who knows how many times DA beat me while you were gone. Let's just say 3-1. I barely won one because of a lucky crit just when I needed it. The other 3.. Well, we'll leave those to your imagination lol

                    You could try to adjust the pictures size. If you do that it could be pasted somewhere. I like the picture tbh :3

                    Am I supposed to challenge people on the PC server or in VM/PM?

                        EDIT: Just beat Mence, Anti, and you Mr. Ooka. Although I wonder what would've happened without the crit..

                        EDIT: EDIT: Just lost to Ooka and Mence using the apocalypse

                        EDIT: EDIT: EDIT: Can we gain more exp by defeating higher ranked members? Like, I guess beating a member of the same rank gives you 10 exp. Beating a member of the next rank above gives you 20, the one above that 30, and so on and so forth? At least until the rank of Legend, since all the ones above that require another task to be completed?

                            Ahhhhh! So close to beating Yoh.. Maybe if I had been overzealous as usual and SD a second time with Scizor lol. Either way, GG

                            EDIT: Just beat Mence
