I can see where you're coming from for points 1 and 2, but in reality, 3 is actually not true at all. Lati@s, Chomp, Mence, Wobb, etc. have not been banned, and they haven't banned beyond the obvious from the 4th gen (Deo-A, Darkrai and such).

And what were you hoping to find in this clan?
As much as I hate to be blunt, Cubones has a good point. Clans generally don't do mch except chat and battle.

lol you must be one of those guys that are sick and tired of weather. I have to admit its pretty annoying to see those teams all the time, but it does take skill to use it effectively. There are lots of mind games going on in weather vs. weather, because you have to play well to kill the opponents weather starter so you have to be good to constantly win weather wars. I personally use anti-weather, which has an advantage against weather, so the weather team has to use good skill to beat me. Weather only has an advantage against normal teams, and only in a weather vs normal team is the only scenario that I can think of that there isn't much skill involved. Moral: switch to a good anti-weather team

About Blaziken, I really don't understand why he got banned either. It seems like lots of people made Blaziken weak teams and were too lazy to adapt so they were like "hes too powerful for me to beat: broken"

About the third point, which pokemon in the 4th generation was broken that isn't banned in this gen that you feel should be banned? Just curious.

About the tiers comment: tiers R 4 queers. I don't care what the about the tiers except ubers and BL, which is not really based on usage. Its hard thinking of a another good alternative to that tiering system though.

It's not in the sense that I hate weather teams, it more or less I injoy a metagame involving more then 4-5 teams (even tho they can vary somewhat). I generally run a normal team but usually I can beat weather teams decently (2-0/3-0) but it gets old seeing the same stuff while at the same time almost forced to play either weather or anti-weather. And about the point for it should be banned, I thought the reason to ban things was over centralizing the metagame or being so op that you have to bring 3-4 counters to stop it (not saying weather is op).


About point 3, I'm talking about things like lati twins although I dunno what recent bans or anything of that sort have happened recently.

And finally about the tiers comment, Its not that I care about tiers as a whole, just wanna see less people running the same stuff over and over (although people will run what they feel is best regardless) and I feel the tiers are helping things to be this way.

Oh almost forgot, reason I feel it requires less skill is because weather makes normal teams almost unrunable at times (people run the strongest teams to make things easier, mainly weather unless anti-weather is better overall which means that will become the "run this team to make the game easier" team)

DISCUSSION INTERRUPTION

I'm in a terrible slump lately. All my teams are failing (or my playstyle, dunno), and I'm about 150th, horrible considering it takes like 10 straight losses to get there. I'm going to try a Sandstorm team, but I'm doubting it would work.

EDIT: Just lost to a guy who ran a Ingrain+Iron Defense Nattorei. I'm starting to think we should ban Poli.

I know that, my fire-type got mauled by a crit before. Anyways, it was in the rain, hence the Poli mention.

I won't be on for about 3 days, school trip.

^Would this counter Speed Boost Blaziken? Sharpedo has 15 higher base speed than Blaziken, it has Speed Boost too, and has super effective moves. Haven't tried it yet though, I'll try Sharpedo on Friday when my new laptop charger arrives.
Also, I think I might run an anti-weather team. Any tips?

Agreed. Perhaps then it could require more strategy than sending out Politoad.


EDIT: I'd like to know something. If I breed a Pokemon with a Dream World ability, will it pass on that ability to the offspring? I want to know because I have a couple with Dream World abilities, but bad natures.

Are you asking that if you were to breed a Pokemon with a DW ability, will that DW ability be its non-DW ability? If so, then no. I'm 99.9% sure of this. Sweet GIF by the way!

It wouldn't beable to revenge or force it to switchout without aqua jet, even tho I would run aqua jet anyway to beable to revenge kill any weak poke before I get a speed boost.

From what I heard if the female has the dream world ability and is breed with a male poke of the same type(ex. female Sharpedo with Speed Boost + Male Sharpedo) then you can not only pass over the DW ability but also egg moves.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, currently you can get the ability to recieve 1 of eevee's evolutions with its dream world ability through a game event thing here --> <(^.^<) // I figured I would mention incase anyone wanted to beable to get any of them, but you can only pick one...

Nothing counters speed boost blaziken except for Slowbro. Sharpedo has to be able switch in with little risk to be a counter, but high jump kick on the switch will do like 100% to it. It can easily revenge kill with aqua jet though. Since it can't do this, it's theoretically not a counter. However, its a good check (but so is anything with aqua jet). This question is useless because blaziken is banned anyways.

Anti-weather is the way to go this metagame. A good way to make it is by making a combo of 2 pokemon to beat each weather. For example, slowbro and virizion can almost single handedly beat sand

I'm back from my school trip. I realized that I'm at 301st of the WiFi ladder. It was a great welcome home.

Hey guys, what do you think of having Azu+Scizor+Deo-S+Breloom to beat sand? I've tried it once, the hax from Scalds and crits really did me in but it did pretty well.
