  1. Past is past buddy, cringe worthy as it all might be it's never worth outright rejecting. The cringe factor being mainly why I avoid my old posts like the plague! The shoddy days were pretty awesome to the say the least. For me it was the hub of my activity, it all got a bit shit passed that. But like you I try to pop in to see some old friends, or friend (singular) as wraith is potentially the only person that I too still recognise. Well take it easy buddy!
  2. I ban Gin because where in God's name have you been
  3. If its geard around charizard then you're definitely going to need a spinner. A good team mate in that regard is Hitmontop who'll happily take Rock typed attacks aimed at Charizard. Cloyster is another particularly good team mate who can take water typed attacks for charizard. Last but not least by any stretch is Starmie who does particularly well at taking on bulky waters and things like gyarados that could threaten charizard, in return charizard will eliminate bulky grassers. Scizor is a goo team mate as its slow U-turn allows for charizard to switch in for free, anything that baits Earthq
  4. So there're a couple of mons so far that look like pretty cool / interesting additions and since stats and moves are pretty much completely released I thought id talk about them a little bit. Hawlucha Fight / Flying 78 / 92 / 75 / 74 / 63 / 118 Some key points: + Neutral SR damage / no rock weakness + Flying Press is a great move for removing bulky Grassers / Normals / steels + Can get passed the TanKing duo, making Hawlucha a good wall breaking asset. - some sets will suffer from 4ms - will probably find bulky waters an issue with no solid grass or electric moves to abuse. Hawluc
  5. Has anyone else had a look at smogons preliminary base stats? Jesus christs some of them look crazy on the mega front, alakazam with apparently 175 SpA and 150 Spe. Mawile with huge power and 105 atk, never mind that it has swords dance and sucker punch. Those sorts of stats even make mega charizards offences that's look wimpy at 124/ 129/ 100. Even Heracross has 185 atk. I think a lot of megas will infortunatly be banned of these prelims are correct, which'll be a shame, they went too far one way
  6. I understand the extra SpD for ol 'zam, but a HP boost would have been nice, or more noticeable. Same with Pikachu. Nothing ground breaking but we'd only complain if it were. I just wish someone would hurry up an get definitive base stats!!!
  7. Or maybe its just a move that he learns and has now pretty cool coverage. I hate to sound pessimistic but theyll never give Gyarados part dragon. That'd just make too much sense. That'll be the day Flareon gets flare blitz! -wishes intensifies- 2013 the year of the scarf blitz Flareon!!!
  8. I like this a lot. Weather teams are fun, but it can't rain forever metaphorically and literally speaking. I did like the good old days where playing weather was high risk high reward. So this new mechanic will sit right in the middle, gotta give up lefties if you want a long storm and 10 turns is more than enough for those of us used to 5-8 turns. I think this is going to be a lot of fun, maybe we can see drizzle swimming again, Kingdra back in OU rocking them cool ass spex. Will be interesting to see whether or not the storm can be resummoned upon switching in past 10 turns. Not resetting
  9. Can I get some sauce with that please Wraithykins?
  10. Yesss that would be pretty cool for pursuit trapping. More so in lower tiers though, I feel. Because the usage of it would always make it reactive to spinning. Unless their designated spinner can outright defeat him, they'll switch and you'll treat someone else with a ghost typing, which they might not mind so much, think about Snorlax switching in, its going to love not being weak to fighting anymore. Though, I guess anything with a ghost typing is going to be scared shitless of pursuit/ sucker punch. On a side note I can't really see the point in spoilers as given the nature of this thread
  11. I've had a quick look through all the, still fully unconfirmed, leaks and if in 10 or so days they turn out to be true I dare say we truly are going to have a massive rethink on what constitutes as uber. Now, Gengar and aero dactyl are your glass canons that hit hard but not hard enough to be stand alone sweepers, just sort of softeneners. they both don't need any more speed so if they follow trend and get a boost to say 130+ in special / attack, they're going to be absolute monsters. They'll both still have problems with priority, that is unless they OHKO whatever switches in, or throw up a s
  12. Charizard x is goin to be a beast, Heatran will be the only thing able to resist its STABs, and even then its got high speed and EQ, if we can still class base 100 as high. And what's this? No more 4x SR weakness. You know Charizard is about to unleash unholy hell on all tht once mocked him. This gon be good.
  13. Id always sooner go with Twave over body slam, just for that guarantee. She is bulky but you don't want to risk surviving one Tbolt from any Pokemon just for body slam to not get the para and you get 2HKOd. Endure reversal is a waste of time, if they carry a single scarfer or priority user youre screwed. Hitmonlee certainly won't be taking many hits anyway, but to literally limit him to one hit in a fast metagame just doesn't tickle my fancy none to much. You'd be better off running normal gem and fake out or fighting gem hi jump kick if you want to abuse unburden, but even still, its risky a
  14. You'd be correct. Standard is 252 atk / 252 Spe / 4 hp or spA with a jolly or hasty nature. Eq / outrage / u turn or dragon claw / fire punch or fire blast.
