    For example, stone edge has 100 base power while crunch has 80 base power. However iron head will have 80(base power) * 1.5(stab) = 120 power.

    So, basically what I want to say is that if you are going to put in swords dance, you may as well put in iron head so that you can utilize that increase in attack.
    oh ok i was wondering what you were going on about :)
    Ya i put in Iron Head after all, i was just wondering if Mawile would benefit more from an Atk upper move rather than a Def. upper move coupled with IH.

    imo, it depends on you play style. If you like stalling, you will like Iron defense+toxic but I don't recommend stalling ingame so Swords dance is the way to go.

    Yeah, that would probably be better. In-game Pokemon usually need offensive power more than they need defense.

    I am a poor doubles battler but I can still advice you some movepool changes. However, I cannot give you advice without knowing you strategy or team style.

    Virizion: replace Giga Drain with leaf blade, Retaliate with Stone edge and Close Combat for Sacred
    Sword.
    Cobalion: Remove Retaliate again for something like Stone Edge. Close Combat for Sacred Sword.

    Reuniclius: Replace Psychic/ Psyshock with Focus Blast.
    Chandelure: Put in Energy Ball for Inferno and you can consider Psychich for Overheat if you hate repeated switching.

    Hydreigon: Replace Crunch with Flamethrower and Dragon Rush with any other coverage move.

    I feel like this could be easily beaten by Trick Room, Tailwind, and Goodstuff teams.

    Much love to Zurr

    How could you use scolipede WITHOUT megahorn? get a heart scale, go to a move relearner (I think in 6th gym city). I would replace, really any move with it. It does not have amazing accuracy but it hits grass, psychic and dark very hard and hits hard to any neutral pokemon too.

    Just finished EV training my Latias, it will only be used for the battle battle tower in SoulSilver, here's the nature/EV spread : Timid, 252 SA/SP, 6 HP, holding Soul Dew.
    Does anyone have any suggestions on what moves it should have? It's role in my team is mainly a special attacker.

    Thanks

    Is the item soul dew allowed in the battle tower?

    Anyway my favourite set has to be:
    Calm mind
    Dragon Pulse
    Recover
    Safeguard/Refresh/Surf/Reflect

    Very easy to use. Just set up one or two calm minds And spam Dragon attacks.
    Recover maintains health. Safeguard/Refresh help prevent/cure status. Surf can be used to hit steel types and Reflect can be used to patchup your latias's weak defense.

    Alright, thanks for the input. Also just realized Soul Dew isn't allowed in the Battle Tower...

    Exclamation Re: TAKE NOTE: All in-game teams go here.

    I know this is a looooooong shot, but i need some desperate help with some movesets of my pokemon in Colosseum :[ That game is just so limiting (not to mention the pre-physical/special move split) in terms of TMs so i need fresh eyes to give me some suggestions!

    I'll list my team so you guys can make heads&tails of it all (boys/girls):


    Feraligatr @Mystic Water
    Torrent (Timid)
    143/104/105/85/86/101
    -Surf
    -Slash
    -Bite
    -Rain Dance

    Needless to say his STAB special typing is not his strong suit :[


    Misdreavus @Spell Tag
    Levitate (Careful)
    119/73/70/79/103/100
    -Shadow Ball
    -Psybeam
    -Mean Look
    -Perish Song

    She isn't too bad, though it's quite obvious attacking isn't really her style (much like Umbreon). Though when all else fails, she is able to Perish Song major threats out of my way.


    Noctowl @Silk Scarf
    Keen Eye (Bashful)
    156/71/64/83/109/74
    -Take Down
    -Fly
    -Steel Wing
    -Hypnosis

    Again, not much in terms of powerhouse, but with Hypnosis paired with Umberon's Confuse Ray, it makes for a decent HypnoRay hax strategy to make captures a bit easier :s


    Ampharos @----
    Static (Serious)
    145/73/82/115/93/67
    -Thunderbolt
    -Thundershock
    -Thunderwave
    -Light Screen

    With Feraligatr's Rain Dance up this is "ok" but there just isn't anything to her move-set! I hate how many electric moves she has :S


    Umbreon @Quick Claw
    Synchronize (Sassy)
    161/73/113/74/149/63
    -Secret Power
    -Bite
    -Toxic
    -Confuse Ray

    Meh. I don't even know what to say.


    Espeon @Twistedspoon
    Synchronize (Naive)
    128/82/68/146/92/141
    -Psychic
    -Psybeam
    -Return
    -Helping Hand

    Again, meh.

    So there they are, my team. I don't have a fire type (D:) or any fire moves of the sort.. I'm wanting to avoid using Entei, and Magcargo just reeks. What makes this even harder is that i can't just make my team a murderous powerhouse since i would like to be able to actually catch the shadow pokemon 1st time around.

    Tips, advice, suggestions! please i need them! D:>

    This is currently my plan for training a Togekiss:
    Togekiss@ Leftovers/Kings Rock, Serene Grace, Timid,
    EVs: 6HP, 252 SA & SP
    Moves:
    Aura Sphere
    Air Slash
    Flamethrower/Shadow Ball
    Nasty Plot/Roost/Thunder wave

    It will most probably be part of a Doubles Team
    Which moves would be most effective in the Battle tower in B/W? Is the nature and Ev spread ok? Should I invest a little in its defences and forego the speed?

    Thanks

    Also, lets summon our doubles expert @Angad.
