[QUOTE=Limed00d;42875243]So, what do you guys think, does a Steam group sound beneficial?

[QUOTE=Rellow;42877078]Box legendaries have a high catch rate. I caught Yvetal in one turn with a quick ball.[/QUOTE] I say again, I caught Yveltal with Poke Ball.
My friend challenged me to make a team based around a Pokemon I would random. I randomed Wailord.
Uh... how come Goomy learns so few Water-type moves? And it learns Muddy Water but NOT Surf? Nor Scald? It's a water-loving slime, come on. It's the same as Tyrantrum not getting Outrage and learning Horn Drill... despite having no horns. What kind of sorcery is this?
[QUOTE=Chaplin;42867571]PM me if you want a perfect HP, Attack, defense, and speed IV mienfoo of adamant nature I have 3 pages from trying to breed a shiny 4484-8592-6570 and they're all nicknamed so you get to take a bit of chaplin home[/QUOTE] This offer still stands, I still have plenty to go around
Anyone wanna play a fun game of 'help me find out what safari pokemon I have'?
[QUOTE=Maruhai;42877371]My friend challenged me to make a team based around a Pokemon I would random. I randomed Wailord.[/QUOTE] [quote]Wailord is one of the most underrated threats in the UU metagame. At a glance, it seems to have lackluster base defenses, even with its enormous base 170 HP, and only passable base offenses, which are further hindered by Wailord’s low base Speed stat of 60. However, if you take a closer look, it becomes clear that Wailord does actually have a niche in the UU metagame; its access to Water Spout, a powerful 150 Base Power move that is dependent on the user's HP at the time of use, allows Wailord to act as a destructive special attacker. By simply spamming Water Spout, Wailord can become a dangerous offensive threat to any team not prepared for it.[/quote] So basically Perfect HP and Sp.Atk IVs (Preferably go for perfect everything if you can), Choice Specs/Scarf and 252 HP/252 Sp.Atk/6 X EV spread, and spam the hell out of Water Spout. Run a Tank/Stall with Rain Dance, Baton pass and Calm Mind, Spam Calm Mind and Run a Rain Dance, then Batonpass to Wailord after you set up. Spam Water Spout until either you wipe the enemy team, or Wailord KO's. Carry a type coverage Pokémon that can take out water counters(which will almost always be an electric type), like Gliscor with a Toxic Orb and Poison Heal

[QUOTE=Fatfatfatty;42877512]I am outrageous dragonite :v[/QUOTE] I should have clarified: those are in the same team, and they almost invariable baton pass [i]to[/i] the Dragonite or some other Physical sweeper

Raichu is in the fucking Fairy Egg Group and the only Fairy move it gets is Disarming Voice. Meanwhile, fucking DRAGALGE gets Play Rough. Seriously, THE FUCK?

Second flawless pokemon, a Modest Magic Guard Abra
[QUOTE=Rellow;42877569]you're fucking with me, right? because that is the dumbest thing i have heard all day[/QUOTE] Nope, breed it with Azumarill. Absol also gets it, but it makes a slighty bit of more sense (and Dark/Fairy makes for excellent coverage). Still, Fairy fails HARD at the Dragon countering deal because nobody gets strong Fairy moves. It resisting Bug was unneeded (seriously, Bug and Grass are resisted by SEVEN FUCKING TYPES), and it resisting Dark and being SE against it wasn't really balanced, GHOST was the type that needed a new weakness and a new resistor.
