    Mine is holding Safety goggles, and knows Phantom Force, Dig, X-Scissor and confuse Ray (although I suppose you could do toxic in that place as well) and the whole point of it is to be gone for every other turn so it can't be hit (even during Dig, Earthquake can't hit because of Wonderguard) and to just annoy the heck out of the opponent

    If you're real, give it Final Gambit.

    Try Protect, Will-o-Wisp, Shadow Sneak, X-Scissor and give it a Focus Sash. Defenses don't matter too much unless you're running into an opponent who has a mon with Download, so EVs all go into Attack and Speed.

    Unfortunately, Shedinja doesn't have much of a use in Doubles, outside of some minor niches. Suppose, you could also try running Toxic on it and see where you get with that.

      Ahh, hacked shiny perfect mega altaria. How I hate you. But what counter would be best for dealing with one?

      Provided that Mega Altaria doesn't have Earthquake, Heatran is its best counter, as it walls both of its STABs and can use Flash Cannon to hit it super effectively.

      Mega Venusaur is also good, as its bulk is stupidly good enough to let it shrug off whatever Mega Altaria can throw at it.

        While breeding for my Umbreon, I got a shiny Eevee that won't fit for my Umbreon.

        IVs: All perfect but SpDef
        Nature: Careful
        Ability: Run away
        Moves: Helping Hand, Growl, Tackle, Tail whip.

        What Eeveeloution should I evolve it into?
        What EVs should I give it?
        What moves should I give it?
        What Item should I give it?

        Alright, are you sure this doesn't belong in Battling and Team Building?

        But anyway, unless you want an Eevee that is absolutely perfect, I'd go ahead and make this an Umbreon anyway (Sylveon could work as well, though). Though, if I might ask, what is it's Sp. Def IV?

          I don't know what it's SpDef is. I only know how to check the highest stat(s).

          Well, you should try to figure it out, because if it's decent, you could still invest in an Umbreon.

            So I have always loved Regirock. Not really sure why but I like it. I caught it last week and it has a Brave Nature with max IV's in Attack, Defense, and Speed. How should I invest it's EV's? Should it be used only for trick rooms or can I make it work in singles or doubles without trick room? I looked at smogon but no one recommends a brave nature. Please tell me there is a way.

              Considering you have max Attack and Defense, you could try running a Curse set. Max out your HP and Attack, with 4 EVs in Defense investment. Besides the obvious Rock STAB in the form of either Rock Slide or Stone Edge, you should also run Earthquake as coverage. You could try running Thunder Wave as utility. If you don't mind having to spend a turn recovering from the debuffs, you could try Superpower.

                Thank you for the input. I will reflect on this.

                      It's fine as long as none of its offensive stats aren't lowered. Also, this below set is viable only in Battle Spot, as Greninja is banned to Ubers and Attack Deoxys does all-out attacking better:
                      -Hydro Pump/Low Kick
                      -Ice Beam
                      -Gunk Shot
                      -Dark Pulse/Grass Knot/Hidden Power (Fire)/Extrasensory
                      Nature: Hasty/Naive
                      EVs: 40 Atk/216 SAtk/252 Spe
                      Item: Life Orb
                      Ability: Protean

                        Thanks, I heard that naive Greninja is more viable but hasty will have to do for now.

                          My SO's favorite Pokemon is Miltank and he also enjoys playing with Pokemon that aren't necessarily top tier. If I'm giving him a Miltank as a gift, what egg moves and nature should I ensure I give it to make it as competitively viable as possible? I don't need a full moveset, just the options I should ensure are there. I was thinking Impish, Thick Fat with Curse.

                            How does everyone get their pokes to be competitive by breeding. My ditto is locked in ORAS until Janurary. Any suggestions?

                              You can chain Dittos for a good one at Mount Hokulani

                                So 2 things:

                                1) Does Psychic Terrain prevent both players from using priority moves?
                                2) Does Light Clay extend Aurora Veil's duration or no?

                                  Psychic Terrain prevents any grounded Pokemon from being hit by priority moves. e.g. If Tapu Lele were to be running Air Balloon it would still be hit by Bullet Punch. This means Flying-types can still be hit by priority moves in Psychic Terrain. I've personally tested these situations.

                                  Light Clay does extend Aurora Veil's duration. You can even Reflect and Light Screen while Aurora Veil is up for triple screens though I'm not sure why you'd want to.

                                    1. Yes. However it does not prevent non-targeted priority moves such as Prankster Tailwind.

                                    Can you use Z-status moves (like Z-Conversion for example) more than once or is it like the attacks where it's only once per battle?
