  1. Lv. 1 Gyrados is a cool concept. It would rule in my local Lv. 1 Tourneys.
  2. Return on my max attack EV Ursaring at max friendship is BEASTLY! With burn/poison and guts, it can OHKO anything it can outrun (which admittedly isn't much without trick room up).
  3. I use return for all my Ursaring sets. It is incredibly satisfying. I used frustration on a Lopunny for a while because I hated it's design and just wanted to exercise my right to not be a good trainer (sorry to all those stuffed bunny rabbit lovers out there). Favorites...man I too have so many. I love all the dog types, from Arcanine, Eveelutions, and Vulpix in the originals all the way to the Stoutland line and everything in between. With the apex of my dog type love being the legendary trio. I also love the bear types (obviously) I sort of wish there were a few more. I would especial
  4. Wow where do I start. To the diverse moveset argument, I say you have to do what works for you, if you like a diverse set...hell run one. It's all for fun, and a diverse set can sometimes trip up someone so focused on "calling" a special sweeper by throwing out their special wall. Favorite ice type? Easy... Water type? Though there is a slight caveat on water types, I seriously love them all. I would probably want to be a Water Gym Leader if I could. My favorite fighting type is...
  5. Best Normal type is obviously,
  6. I'm going to guess it is supposed to be this guy
  7. I don't think that the Nidoqueen Nidoking thing is all that weird (well maybe the Nidoking) but there is some basis for a female losing the ability to breed in older age, or in this case evolution. It's all odd, but fun to postulate about.
  8. I was working on the Dex myself when I got the hint medals that gave me the nudge to try to get the specific type medals. I had a good fighting group halfway ready so I trained for a week and got the others up to snuff (including an event Primeape I got through a trade and never used from years ago, and Primeape was always one of my favorites I just haven't been able to use him much until this challenge which was really fun for me) and whipped the old Elite Four Fighting style. I think the addition of the medals and giving GOOD rewards for completing the dex are my favorite non-story addit
  9. Defeated Iris. Hopefully got my medal for that. It was quite fun figuring out a team that would cover the weaknesses and be powerful enough to roll through. Most of my guys were Lv. 75 and it was pretty difficult to beat Marshal because I screwed up and thought Psyshock was a physical attack...I needed Zen Headbutt or Psycho Cut I figured out one fight too late. I also had a bit of a struggle with Iris, until I got my Scrafty with Moxie set up to basically sweep her team (except her Haxorus!). Nice little challenge though. Oh and it was a second time through.
  10. I am running, Gallade, Scrafty, Infernape, Primeape, Lucario, and Conkledurr. Beat it once but my battery ran out as it was registering my pokemon, so I am beating the Champion again now.
  11. I'm currently in the middle of the Elite 4 in W2 with an all Fighting team. Pretty excited about it.
  12. I currently have Scraggy, Darumaka, Boldore, Purrloin, Klink, and Sigilyph... and of course Zorua. It's a pretty neat little flourish.
  13. DragonGuardian, I do not know if you can GTS Negotiate for events, I guess it could be possible...but most people on negotiation are trolls. I hate it and it takes way too long to barter.
  14. You can't trade events via GTS these days because they have a special ribbon. So you'd have to have a friend or acquaintance willing to trade it off to you. Unless other countries don't have the ribbon issue on GTS.
  15. Moloetta also wouldn't count towards completion of the Dex until next gen.
  16. I have been playing for years and have never ever had a single shiny pop up. I think I'm due.
  17. It does suck. I don't rely on it, but I like to have it, and being unable to access it is quite a hit on my playing style.
  18. If he trades you an egg you can still name it. And trading online is easy now with the friend codes and wifi deals. You just have to exchange friend codes and plan a time to both connect in the Wifi union room. Make sure you trade with trustworthy people though if you are doing egg trades. And doing an egg trade for an ability can be spotty :/
  19. Nice. The PWT is one of the things I'm most excited about.
  20. That would be nice with its STAB and that boost. RedJ Any pokemon you need I have caught. I can make an egg and we can trade. Just let me know via PM.
  21. Adds Ground, Fighting, and Fire weaknesses, which are standards on most teams in competition. That's what I dislike about The typing. I'll have to look into Bullet Punch and Flash Cannon. Bullet Punch is pretty good as I remember, and would make sense for Lucario to have. Edit: Bullet Punch is an egg move. It only has 40 attack power though... Iron Tail (TM Move) is powerful but suffers from 75 accuracy Flash Cannon is by far the best move you mentioned and would do well in the Special set.
  22. Crobat would be a quite serviceable physical sweeper in general. Serebii works from a smaller base than Smogon, I tend to trust Smogon more in that area, though I love Serebii for everything else. He has fantastic speed and his overused sets are fricken fantastic! Even though it is the very definition of a glass cannon...well not quite a cannon, but a serviceable side arm. Crobat is absolutely a "hard and fast" type of pokemon. While he doesn't hit super hard he has access to Brave Bird and with the STAB it hits pretty hard, but he'll be worthless in the one round, Acrobatics also hits
  23. I cannot express enough my utter love of Lucario for this very reason. He can be a beast and has such a deep move pool for either way. I just wish he had Earth Power. I also wish he had some viable Steel type moves. With that said I have one Lucario I run Toxic, I've found it to be useful for certain sets. What you posted could work. I ran a Dark Pulse, Dragon Pulse, Aura Sphere, Nasty Plot set for a while as well. And Dragon Pulse is more powerful and more accurate for Dragon fighting, Ice Punch covers more types but Dragon Pulse is good because if you find yourself in the unfortunate
  24. First why would you ditch bone rush and Swords Dance? If your Lucario has high Attack I would roll with Drain Punch, Bone Rush/Earthquake, Elemental Punch, Swords Dance. With Lucario's speed he makes a fantastic sweeper so you need as much coverage as you can on his moves, Shadow Claw is also good. If your Lucario has high Sp. Attack you should absolutely lose Force Palm for Aura Sphere and you can lose Swords Dance since it is worthless for a special set. Lucario is an amazing special sweeper because of his deep move-set he has Nasty Plot, Shadow Ball, Dragon Pulse, Hyper Beam, and Ps
