Sounds good.

I think I have a plan for the Gym Leaders and Elite Four... should be fun. I'll show it off when the tournament's over.

Got a female Tangela for you, oddish! I won't be able to trade until late on Sunday, or we can trade most afternoons on the weekdays. Shoot me a PM and let me know what you wanted to do.

Everything is 100! Need a couple of train trips to get some items and I will be good to go.

Decided my badge will be called the Verdant Badge. And on the Tournament Chart you can use Sawsbuck as my representative.

Have been leveling stuff up, getting to the point where it's slow-going...

Classes have started again so I haven't had as much time to devote to Pokémon. Still working on it though. Hatched my Tangela yesterday and will try and get it EV trained within the next few days, and everyone's levels are slowly getting up there...

The things I learn using smogon's damage calc utility.

In other new, Hippowdon gets added to the list of things I don't much care for.

Don't worry about it. Mine is bad or something. Maybe.

According to my data, Hipowdons are literally unfaintable.

Your data is from Smogon, who are a bunch of whiny blowhards. Hippowdon wasn't difficult for me to take down.

In other news, it looks like PQ will likely be joining as the Water Leader. More news on her team as it develops.

Yeah, I think Hippowdon was one of my two KOs on Phaeon's team. I don't think it was even the one to slaughter most of my Pokémon.

Smogon works nice in theory, but they're work can't always hold up in actual play. Also, their analysis is mostly aimed at the Shoddy Battle/whatever crowd, not the Wifi players. We don't instinctively have perfect IVs, and many strategies that work for Shoddy aren't as effective on Wifi.

Well, that, and they ban stuff because "it's too difficult to beat". They're a bunch of whiners. That's all I've gotten from their "rules".

To each their own.


wifi pros:
You can use simple double team bibarel and drive your openent batty.
Beating the team of mismatched poorly raised Ubers.
Better chance of finding battles with random stuff, ie the team you beat the game with.

cons:
Disconects
Wonder Guard Spiritomb
Double team, double team, double team
Kyogre lead, again. Good luck Beedrill
Pokémon's asleep? Its just fodder now.
Double team

shoddy pros:
Quick team building
More powerful rules(sleep, evasion, etc)
All Pokémon are 31/full ev

shoddy cons
No animation, ymmv as battles may be as excited as ms excel
Accidentally put a second thing to sleep? That's a paddlin.
Too many people play OU without thinkin, Ferrothorns everywhere.
Naturally attracts competitive people, often times the sort who believe stone edge missing twice should be statistically impossible and 3 turns of sleep are h4x.


The things I like most about playing with smogon(either shoddy or in the future, wifi with smogon rules enforced by players) are Sleep + Evasion clause.
Even tiers are useful to me, they only hold back the Pokémon that would dominate roles, ie Speed Boost Blaziken > Infernape > Arcanine > Entie > Flareon > Charmeleon. If you want to use anything play ubers, I think everyone enjoys warstories where ubers get trashed by unorthodox teams.

Preview: Away team lead Zekrom, home team lead....Meowth.
As for me, I don't feel much like taking on Scarfchomps/Kyogre when I want to run a team with powerhouses like Ampharos/Flareon.

Although, one of the most satisfying things for me was playin ubers,gen 4, with Quaqsire. Send him in on Kyogre and show that blob what for.

Oh, I like Smogon(and Shoddy), and it certainly has it's place. I'm simply a bit annoyed that people take the word of Smogon as the gospel. Sometimes, their math just doesn't stand up on the battlefield.

And looking forward to fighting you! Oh, and "ye time" is your time, not the time. Not that you actually care.
