Pretty much sorted out now. I don't want people trying to counter my team.

Lock please, if possible with a cool post xD

For Forretress, use Spikes over Stealth Rock. After all, so many Pokémon can learn Stealth Rock, but fewer good ones can use Spikes effectively. Run it on one of his other slots instead—if you can't give it up.

A suggestion for Regirock, try going with Earthquake instead of Brick Break until Regirock gets Hammer Arm.

Well, I was thinking of Stealth Rock, since it hits pokemon with levitate, but whatever you want to choose, mango.

Thanks for the suggestions, I think I'll go with Stealth Rock, and EQ on Regirock :happy:

Also, one thing about Yanmega, going with Protect won't get you anywhere. You still won't have an attack to deal decent damage against Zapdos, so what use woul the speed boost be? HP Ice is the only thing on the moveset that can hit Zapdos for decent damage. The only use for Protect would be to BP speed.

Since I don't have time for a full rate, I'll just point out a few things that should be corrected:

- For Yanmega use the set:

Hidden Power Ground
Air Slash
Protect
Bug Buzz

That set will allow you to out-speed a max speed Naive Heatran. Hidden Power Ground will obviously KO. Obviously you have to Protect the first turn against it.

- Use either Spikes or Toxic Spikes on Foretress. As one of the previous posters stated, many Pokemon can set up Stealth Rock. You may want to throw Stealth Rock on Uxie if you really want it on your team.

I understand...I think. But My whole team doesn't revolve around countering Zapdos :ermm: Anyway, I think Raikou can do that job pretty well.

EDIT: Thanks, Trinity :happy: But now I'll have to re-breed that Yanmega....

OK, after battling that team I'd say that it's pretty good overall. And keep protect for your Yanmega it gave me a hard time my Porygon-Z would've killed it if it didn't have protect and hypnosis.

I wasn't trying to make your team revolve around countering Zapdos, I was just saying that Protect doesn't offer any help against it since you asked the question if Protect will help against Zapdos. Anyway, it's best you just go with the moveset Trinity suggested.

Thanks...I'm thinking of running a Choice Scarf/Specs Heatran over Uxie...I keep getting hammered by fire attacks aimed at Yanmega and Forretress.
