No no, don't apologise - there wasn't a topic FOR you to post in, hence the topic you made. I've made this one so that everyone can put all their questions in one place. =)

^And yeah, I forgot wholly about that older topic. Be decent if we had it stickied so it didn't get lost like that one did =/

Edit: Ok, so Alex made one aaaages ago which I totally forgot about. Rob has kindly merged the two topics and skittled them. All praise goes to him. <3

Edit2: ..."skittled?" I meant merged. Epic typo if ever there was one.

Soul Dew is probably the best item you can have on a Latios. It's much better than Specs and Scarf as it gives extra power as well as the ability to switch moves. With Thunderbolt, if you have Kyogre on your team (assuming it's for an uber team) then use Thunder. The extra power is always very nice. The main set for the all-out attacker is Draco Meteor/Grass Knot/Thunder/Recover or HP Fire or Dragon Pulse.

Also, is this for BW or DPPt? I'm not sure about BW, but my advice is valid for DPPt.
hahahahahahaha

Soul Dew is not available in BW. No one is really playing DPP anymore...

Specs and Scarf play differently... Specs is a wallbreaker with Draco Meteor plowing through teams... Scarf is a bit more of a revenge killer, and Specs bluffer... Specs is definitely more common. The popular moveset is: Draco Meteor / Surf / Hidden Power [Fire] / Trick. Trick cripples Blissey and Chansey, who would otherwise wall you.. HP Fire for Ferrothorn too who is on every team. If you can't get HP Fire... then you need a surefire way to deal with Ferrothorn because it will just lol at you all day.

Is Dark Pulse the only Egg-Move that Hydreigon can get which is actually any good? I'm looking at him being a Choice Scarf revenge killer one.. Draco Meteor/FireBlast/U-Turn etc..?

Dark Pulse is the only way Hydreigon is beating Jellicent outside of a Specs Meteor Crit.

^ It depends what you wanna do with it, but mine is Impish. I suggest either Impish or Careful.

Quick thought for discussion;

My dear friend Clare Bear caught this Zapdos:


Naive
 6 - 7 / 24 - 25 / 10 - 11 / 31 / 23 / 14 - 15
Hidden Power Ice 68


The latter part of this is the exciting part; HP Ice 68. However, Naive prompts me to run a random mixed set.

I was thinking of:

Zapdos@Power Herb
Naive
252 Speed / 200 Special Attack / 56 Attack

Sky Attack
Thunderbolt
HP Ice
Heat Wave?

The idea is to sweep with lots of S/E attacks. Sky Attack + Heat Wave are both tutor attacks, costing me a good 112 BP. :<

Question is; after Sky Attack absorbs the Power Herb, will the other attacks be enough without any power-boosting item? Or should I drop Sky Attack, go with Drill Peck, and run Life Orb? With Roost over Heat Wave? o_O

Decisions, decisions~

Just use U-turn > Sky Attack and keep it standard Zapdos. Like Tbolt/HP Ice/U-Turn/Roost or something

I was considering running a Gyarados in my team, but at the moment it's kind of a gimmiky in my head.

I was thinking maybe a LO/CB + Moxie all out attacker, using his great attack and attack boosting ability to just raise his power with every pokemon he takes out.
Thanks Catstorm

I guess you could run a DD set and play a similar game to Scrafty.

Are Thundurus/Tornadus the same to the roaming birds/dogs in Gen IV in that defeating them and then beating the E4 makes them return with a new IV set? Or will they stick from the moment I first see them?

To my knowledge, this is correct; they will reappear with new IVs and natures if KOed once you defeat the Elite Four again.

Also in response to 1794mew and Liam; quite honestly, Gyarados's Intimidate is what makes it so fearsome. if you want to use a Dragon Dance Moxie user, then Scrafty really is your better bet. Gyarados loves Intimidate as it is what gives it its incredible bulk, allowing it to stay in and smash the opponent, whereas Scrafty makes do on a single Dragon Dance and then uses type-effectiveness and brute force to gain Moxie boosts and eventually OHKO the opponent's team.
