Pokemon Showdown Battle Thread

(1/2) > >>

Since some of the users here are on pokemon showdown and into competitive battling, I have set up this thread here. Pokemon Showdown is an online competitive battling simulator run by Smogon. Here, you can talk to other users about Pokemon Showdown, request to battle them, and give advice on how to improve teams.

Just so you know, I play the following tiers:

OU (OverUsed)
UU (UnderUsed)
RU (RarelyUsed)
NU (NeverUsed)
LC (LittleCup)
Ubers (Working on team now.)

Liking the idea very much ;)

I'm enjoying life in OU right now with a close-to-standard Hail team, consisting of these:

Abomasnow is mixed EBelt, Kyurem is a Scarf variant, Heatran is a Specs variant, Celebi is a Specially Defensive variant that runs Psychic/HP Fire/Recover/U-Turn, Tentacruel is the Toxic Spikes variant and finally, Gliscor is a Defensive variant. I run SubToxic Gliscor when I play the No SR ladder.

I'm enjoying the team, particularly in No SR when I run SubToxic.

(Putting this team here if anyone wants to give it a quick fix)

Meowstic Royalty:
My Showdown name is the same as it is on here. I usually play OU, Monotype, Randbats or compete in a tourney.

I usually go for OU though, and this is my team:

Havoc (Infernape)

252 Attack, 252 speed, 4 Sp def.
Moves: Close Combat, Flare Blitz, Earthquake, Thunder Punch
Item: Focus Sash

Damon (Scrafty)

252 Attack, 252 speed, 4 defense.
Moves: Drain Punch, Ice Punch, Crunch, Dragon Dance

I'm free for a battle anytime. Note that I play it on my tablet so... Huge lag problems.

^Aha! I battled you yesterday :P

I think you should lose Giga Impact on Garchomp, and give it Stone Edge/Fire Fang. Also, give it a Choice Scarf because it makes for a decent scarfer (however, you are still battered by Specs Latios). Other than that, you can still suffice.

Meowstic Royalty:
You did? I can't even remember who won. Was this the battle where I swept a whole team with Damon?

And yep, I'll probably get rid of Gigs Impact. I usually use it as something for massive damage on 1 HP, but a priority move negates that tactic. And STAB Outrage has more power. XD
