    Seeing as you can only use Distortion Form Giratina in wifi battles, I would go for a defensive spread and use it as a wall :).

    Multiply whatever the move's accuracy is by 1.1. Fire Blast will have 93.5% accuracy, while Hydro Pump will be 88%.

    I think Wide Lens are Game Corner prizes.

    I believe this goes here, but I'm not 100% sure. Anyhow, I got a Calm Mew from the event, which I'm really happy about since my friend got hardy (not that bad, though, but not good). SHould I use Smogon's pure BP set, or does anyone have any alternative sets.

    A question... I've been seeing the term EV training (or something like that) since I first came to the forums. I do know what IV means (asked a person), but as for EV... What does that mean?
    If this question belongs somewhere else, let me know. I'll move the question there.

    What you have right now isn't really necessary on Dragon Dance Dragonite because you can easily have perfect coverage with Dragon/Ground/Fire moves. I would recommend swapping ThunderPunch out for Earthquake and Aqua Tail for Fire Punch. I also prefer Outrage over Dragon Claw for much more power, but that's your decision (Outrage helps a ton against bulky Water-types, which Dragonite will inevitably be facing... but it'll probably still die to them if the bulky Waters aren't weakened enough).

    ThunderPunch may help more against Gyarados and other Waters, but Outrage is generally enough damage against them so you can have more room for more coverage. Aqua Tail is kinda redundant so you can opt for a Fire move against Skarmory and Bronzong, albeit it may not do too much damage. Fire Blast is an option too to hit Skarmory on its weaker Special Defense stat, but there could be specially defensive variants out there.

    I'm trying to make a Clamperl with Hidden Power Electric/Grass, but breeding it doesn't seem to work. Is it impossible to get a decent Hidden Power of these types with a 31 in SpAtk? If so, would Rock be a good type?
    If only I could kill all of the idiots out there who pollute the GTS with their "gimme Darkrai for my Caterpie" crap...

    I put up an Entei on wifi asking for a Regirock. The Regirock that arrived had mail on it, which read along the lines of "This Regirock sucks. All Regirocks suck. Arceus is the best!" What the hell?

    Also, no matter what anybody says, RNG is damn near impossible to pull off.

    Grass has to be 30 iirc. Electric can be 31.

    Hidden Power Grass: Attack and Special Attack need to be 30.

    Hidden Power Electric: Special Attack needs to be 30.

    And, don't go Hidden Power Rock. It doesn't help against Water-types whom Clamperl cannot deal with otherwise.

    Well, best bet is to trade for one.

    I'm assuming these figures are for Max power H.P., because I've ended up with an Electric 63 with max SpAtk. Thanks for the information though.

    Electric can have 31 SpA with 70 power, you just won't have flawless speed.
    This thread is a good resource.

    Hidden Power Grass:
    31/E/31/30/31/31
    31/O/30/30/31/31
    30/O/31/30/31/31
    30/O/30/30/31/31
    30/E/31/30/31/31

    Hidden Power Electric:
    31/O/31/30/31/31
    31/E/30/31/31/30
    30/O/30/31/31/30

    Sorry, forgot to mention that the Clamperl was for a TrickRoom team. Its IV's are 22/20/22/31/31/0.

    That brings up another question: For hidden power, if it comes down to choosing between a higher SpAtk IV and a stronger Hidden Power, which one is more important usually?
