  1. Bob - Actually I was looking for help with building a team I didn't really request any ratings but feel free to do so. We are in the Team Building forum after all. Assassin - Thanks again buddy. And no problem with the miss I don't mind. I did end up putting on signal beam to eliminate dark types and it has made Espeon a much better special attacker. I also used your skymins set for my wi-fi team.. Hope you don't mind you really know your stuff. I appreciate all the help.

    Hello ^^

    How are you liking the site? Who's your favorite Pokemon?
  3. Granted, Blissey and Lugia are the "best" special walls but you'd be surprised at how well Dragonite can do this job. When he comes out into battle most people assume it's for offensive but he has great sp.d, tons of resistances, and access to Heal Bell which makes him a great candiate for a special wall. This set can wreak havoc: Dragonite @leftovers Careful nature - Dragon Dance - Dragon Claw - Heal Bell - Roost Now you can switch up dragon claw for superpower so your sweep isn't ruined by steel-types but I prefer Dragon Claw because it's a good STAB and gets good damage on everything. As for a physical wall, my favorite is Umbreon because he doubles as an annoyer. Umbreon @ leftovers (every wall should have this item) Relaxed nature - Toxic - Confuse Ray - Payback - Moonlight This set is pretty devasting and the best one Umbreon can pull off.
  4. randomspot555 & bobtheedibleone : Yes, Shaymin would be land forme because Natural Cure is crucial if I want to use Rest. But Skymin is soo cute.. Also, why is Skymin banned? And to crimson assassin, thank you so much for the helpful input. Confuse Ray comes in handy but it's not vital to the team so no hard feelings on that one. I was thinking a Lapras with it would be pretty cool but let me address the topic... I am head over heels for the Heal Bell Dragonite, I didn't even know that was possible, but unfortunately I don't own a GameCube so maybe if anyone could get there hands on one and would be willing to trade you can pm me I can offer pretty much anything. That Dragonite looks like it could really do some damage and would make a great support. I must have him. Your MixedApe set also looks very promising. I just got a Chimchar so I'll add him on but I think a Jolly nature would be good because his speed could be a bit higher. And for Shaymin... he's not really there to wall anything he can do some real sweeping with the rest/leech seed set but I agree that Healing Wish should definitely be incorporated. Although I'm not to hot on your Espeon.. EspyJump is far too useful for me to let go. But other that this is really awesome thank you so much I'm going to go test these babies out on Shoddy so I'll let you know how that goes.
  5. Forgot to mention, a Pokemon with Confuse Ray under its belt would be the best.....
  6. Lately I've been struggling with trying to put together an efficient OU team that would knock out major annoyances such as Umbreon and Milotic. I don't want this team built around trying to eliminate pesky Pokemon and stallers but to be all-around efficient in taking down must OU Pokemon. My main goal is to build a team around the sweepers so they can carry out their jobs. Preferably it would consist of a 2 sweepers (physical/special), 2 walls (also spe/phy), a tank-like shuffler/staller, and a reliable anti-lead (if we could get this to also work as an annoyer or maybe a sweep, that would be awesome). Having a good annoyer I feel is a must-have. So with that down let me introduce the Pokemon I deem most acceptable.. Froslass @ Focus Sash (up for debate) 252 Sp.A & Spe EVs Timid nature/Snow Cloak - Taunt - Spikes - Destiny Bond/Shadow Ball - Ice Beam What I realllllllly like about this is Froslass works as both a lead as it can set up spikes but also an anti-lead beause of taunt and destiny bond. Plus no rapid-spinners would be able to get spikes down (ghost type). Not only that but her incredible speed makes it a sure to get the first hit. Glaceon @ Icy Rock 252 HP & Sp.D Modest/Snow Cloak - Hail - Blizzard - Wish My primary reason for adding Glaceon is for support. Wish would benefit all of my members and hail would help out Froslass. But I know there are better Pokemon for this role and I want to see 'em. Venusaur @ Black Sludge 252 Def & Sp.D Relaxed/Overgrow - Leech Seed - Sludge Bomb - Sleep Powder - Earthquake This particular Venusaur has really helped me out in sticky situations. He's really difficult to take down (thank you leech and those oh so needed EVs) and makes a great wall. Shaymin @ Life Orb 32 HP/252 Sp.A/224 Spe Timid/Natural Cure - Rest - Leech Seed - Earth Power/Hidden Power Ice - Seed Flare Now it gets a little trickier, but this shaymin makes a great special sweeper. The only thing I don't like is how close it resembles Venusaur, but we can alter either of the two to better compliment each other. Blissey @ Leftovers 252 HP & Def Bold/Serene Grace - Counter - Softboiled - Heal Bell - Toxic Not much to say here. Duh Duh Duhnnn.... Espeon @ Leftovers 252 HP/216 Spe/40 Sp.D Timid or Modest?/Synchronize - Substitute - Baton Pass - Psychic - Calm Mind Ahh Espyjump, my one true love. If used at the right time, she will tear teams apart. But I can't decide if I want more Sp.A or Speed with her nature... With that said, I feel this team is terribly mediocre. I need some advice 'cause I'm having far too much trouble putting this together. What would be a perfect addition? Who should go, who should stay, what goes where, etc. etc. Help!
  7. What other types would be beneficial?

    Hello ^^

    Oh wow the anime looks amazing for it and the dragon is so cute!
  9. What game did you do this on?
  10. Ugh I've been trying to get on Mirage Island for so long! At this point I deem it next to impossible.
  11. Personally, I have a few, shiny Clefable and Espeon being my top two. How about you? Who is your favorite partner?

    Hello ^^

    Tbird, you seem like you know what you're doing when it comes to battling. Do you participate in shoddy?
  15. I have to agree with you both, that is much better than my original set. Thank you so much for the helpful rating!!
