Team Building / Monotype Ground Team - Darude Sandstorm (OU)
« on: December 27, 2015, 00:03 »
Hey all, I've recently been working my way back into competitive after some friends from school started up a

monotype gym leader tournament and I drew ground! So I've been working on how the team is gonna run in Pokemon

Showdown with some pretty good results - I got six wins and two losses last night, with losses to water and fairy. So

without further adieu, here's my team!

Note: I really didn't want to use lando-t because I don't like it lol

Dirt Man (Hippowdon) (F) @ Leftovers 
Ability: Sand Stream 
EVs: 252 HP / 152 Def / 104 Spe 
Impish Nature 
- Slack Off 
- Earthquake 
- Stealth Rock 
- Toxic 

My Hippowdon is your basic sand and rocks setter, tanking a huge amount of hits and generally being annoying with toxic and slack off. I've seen some variants with whirlwind to shuffle the other team and rack up chip damage with rocks but I'm not sure if that's the best option for my offense oriented team.

Sludge Man (Nidoking) @ Life Orb 
Ability: Sheer Force 
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe 
Naive Nature 
- Sludge Wave 
- Earth Power 
- Ice Beam 
- Fire Blast

Man Nido is a beast. The amount of coverage given backed up by the 30% boost from sheer force allows for a huge amount of special damage.

Sand Man (Excadrill) @ Life Orb 
Ability: Sand Rush 
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe 
Adamant Nature 
- Earthquake 
- Iron Head 
- Rock Slide 
- Shadow Claw 

Excadrill forms the core physical offense part of my team, and when under sand offers a terrifying combo of speed and power. Shadow claw offers some more coverage versus ghosts and psychics which is nice because I have no direct type counter versus either.

Frost Man (Mamoswine) @ Life Orb 
Ability: Thick Fat 
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe 
Jolly Nature 
- Ice Shard 
- Superpower 
- Stone Edge 
- Knock Off 

Mamoswine is... wow. Really strong. Ice shard makes most drags and flying types cry very hard and knock off allows for the shutdown of a lot of power from other team!

Mud Man (Seismitoad) @ Choice Specs 
Ability: Water Absorb 
EVs: 152 HP / 252 SpA / 104 Spe 
Modest Nature 
- Grass Knot 
- Earth Power 
- Sludge Wave 
- Scald 

Seismitoad. The myth. The legend. The... lumpy toad? Seismitoad is a blessing in that is to only allows for me to freely swap in on water types or scalds/hydro pumps on a predict and eat em up, but also dish a large amount of damage out in return. I chose Seismitoad over Gastro because of this strength and it has served me pretty darn well in battles!

Lava Man (Camerupt-Mega) @ Cameruptite 
Ability: Sheer Force 
EVs: 168 HP / 252 SpA / 88 Spe 
Modest Nature 
- Fire Blast 
- Earth Power 
- Ancient Power 
- Will-O-Wisp 

Camerupt rounds out the team with a nice coverage against grass types. With its monstrous special attack stat coupled with sheer force, the camel really mops up late game. With points put into hp it can switch in on an attack or come in after a sacrifice and live long enough to mega evo and do some damage. Plus, that hair is top tier.

Thanks for reading and hopefully leaving some comments and criticisms!!! c:

Character Guides / Aidan Brinesler
« on: February 10, 2011, 03:14 »
Character name: Aidan Lazuli Brinesler

Age: 12 years of age
Gender: Male

Description: 5'6'' and still shooting up like a weed, weighing around 107 lbs.  Aidan is your typical lad, having a slim body and his face bones only just starting to turn into the square jaw and skull of a man. Coming from Pacifidlog Town, he has sandy blond hair, grown long from not cutting it. His eyes are a deep blue, and he has those kind of eyes that look like they hold so much more information than the person belonging to them actually lets on initially. When he flashes his sly grin after telling a corny joke, you notice that he has a chip in his left front tooth. He got this while helping his dad build another raft-house, a rebar smashing into his face. He wears an Air Force jacket that his dad wore while he was fighting against Team Rocket, wearing an icy blue T-shirt underneath with 3 white spots on both of the sides. He also wears blue shorts, with artistic patches of patterns from shirts generally worn by tourists. His sneakers are a deep, sandy Yellow pigment with soles that have incredibly great traction. He wears a loose-fitting tie around his neck, colored an icy Light Blue color. Occasionally he also wears some Black sunglasses, when it gets bright outside. He carries his items and such around in his shorts' pockets, and his most valuable things in a small, Navy-Blue container with a Spheal catching a snowflake on the tip of its nose.

Personality: Aidan is a carefree lad, being passive and looking to the bright side of life. He has a large optimism, always giving the pokemon he finds a chance. Mature for his age, he tries to understand why people have to so senselessly fight against each other with wars and espionage, but he also understands that it's necessary sometimes. Aidan is also a bookworm. Anywhere you go, you'll be sure to find him nestled up with a book in his lap or tucked under his arm. He's a bit of a clutz, what with his awkward age, and usually accidentally offends people with his attempted wit. When he gets angry, he goes into a mad state and takes a bit of time alone with a good, long book to cool him off. He likes to tell jokes to pass the time usually half-baked ones with horrible timing. He seeks recognition within people, and seems to have an odd desire to earn their trust and be their friend. Another quirk is that he is very loyal to those who befriend him, and he goes out of his way to stay friends with people. He loves all his pokemon with a very strong feeling, and he woulds never intentionally cause them harm. All of his goals in life are loose, and he's still trying to decide what he wants to be. This uncertainty also shows through in his vast inability to make decisions quickly, and that he doesn't like to let people go. He loves making his friends happy, and hates when he has to leave them, very awkward in talking about his feelings.

History: Aidan has had a pretty normal life so far, being born and raised in Pacifidlog town. His father was an engineer, and introduced Aidan to the world of science and architecture. This helped him along to become a well educated student, eventually graduating from Pokemon school and helping his father a couple years before leaving for his journey. One day, in the middle of July when Aidan was 10 years old, he was helping his father build another raft-house, and he wasn't careful enough, ending up with a rebar whacking in the face and knocking him out. He woke up in his bed with an aching jaw and a chipped front tooth, and that tooth was permanent. He eventually recovered, and was up and working in no time. On a different day, when Aidan was about 11 and 1/2, he found a little baby Spheal curled up and trying to swim around under the rafts. Aidan fished it out, fed him, and eventually the two became inseperable, and Aidan decided to name him Avalanche. They went on tons of adventures, ranging for swimming away hastily from an enraged Sharpedo to when Steven Stone visited Pacifidlog and Avalanche bit Steven's Beldum, breaking a part of his little tusk in the process. Eventually Aidan felt like it was time to leave the nest, so to speak, and journey the world outside of his hometown. He is now about to set off on his quest with Avalanche to try and find out his destiny, and have some fun in the process.
