Ah, thank you guys :D I never knew really how to do it minus the guy in the Battle Subway.
:T is sheer force a dream world ability for steelix? If not..maybe ive just been really unlucky in finding one.
I'm kind of confused about how the move Roost works. I was under the impression that if that move is used, the user becomes "grounded" and becomes vulnerable to Ground-type moves. But that wasn't my experience when I was battling a friend using my Flygon against his Pidgeot. Pidgeot used Roost so I used a Ground-type move (I don't remember which one) thinking it would hit but it didn't. Was it non-effective because my Flygon was faster and Roost was used second, thus ending the turn, which would make my Ground-type moves ineffective at the beginning of the next turn? In other words, if a slower Pokemon uses Roost during Single Battle (ending the turn) does the faster Pokemon's Ground-type moves become ineffective since they would be used at what would technically be the next turn? This would make it advantageous to have the move on a slower Pokemon, would it not?
As for whether it's advantageous or not, it really depends on how good Flying is at resisting the opponent's move. For example, if your opponent is using a Rock-type move, it would be helpful to ditch the Flying type before they attack. But in the situation you described, the slower Roost user has the advantage.

Quick question about the video games.
As you know, Growlithe evolves into Arcanine.
Growlithe learns Flamethrower at level 49. Arcanine learns Extremespeed at level 49, too, however.
What I would like to know, is, if I level up my Growlithe to level 49, so it learns flamethrower, then evolve it at level 49, will the newly evolved Arcanine learn Extremespeed?
Also, Confidemus, I think Riolu is as close as you can get to a dog in Gen 4. :o
