    Armaldo is almost always outclassed by either rhyperior/rhydon or sandslash. Sandslash has less weaknesses but the same support movepool. Rhyperior and rhydon have less weaknesses, megahorn as strong as x-sizzor, and a better secondary STAB. Its pretty much out classed in every single way.
    If we are having a battle and I disconnect, it is 100% unintentional; my power goes off often and each time my modem resets.

    Gone until Aug, 10 or something for a trip w/out net access. C u after that. If I suddenly dissapear after that you can bet I got bad grades on my IGCSE's, since results are coming out the week afterwards.

    Can we post Gen 5 teams anywhere at all? Like Blogs, because I have a bunch of teams meant to Show off.

    Does Brave Bird almost always outclass Steel Wing for a Skarmory defensive set?

    I would think so. Steel is a poor attacking type and has a lot less power than Brave Bird. If you were worried about the recoil, I'd still take Drill Peck over Steel Wing (+10 in power and accuracy).

    Yes it's just too early to post RMT's of them.

    Default First Ev moveset: ambipom

    Soooo... I just finished ev training my ambipom that I hatched from an egg, and I am wondering what might be a good moveset for it.

    Stats: <-Only lvl 38 right now, btw first ever ev training by me :)
    Jolly
    Evs: attack, Speed
    current moveset:
    scratch
    double hit
    fake out
    screech

    so, If you have any recommendations for a future moveset, please post your insight

    Here is a moveset that American players would probably shy away from, but was listed on Japanese strategy wikis.

    Moves:
    Fake Out
    Last Resort
    --
    --

    I'd think the strategy is pretty obvious here. Just because a set is useless against Ghost types doesn't make it completely worthless. It's not like every Pokemon can get perfect coverage anyway. Besides, this set is more for the element of surprise.

    As for an item, Silk Scarf is good, but Life Orb is better if nobody else is using it.
    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.

    I would say dont do that, since you are walled by all rock, steel, and ghost types. Just run the standard fake out/ u turn/ low kick, taunt (for a lead) or pursuit or pay back. Taunt is to stop leads from setting up SR or spikes, where as the dark type moves let it hit ghost types. Does it have technitian as an ability?

    alright, so i have this idea in my head to use a sword dancing baton passing ninjask (i use ninjask mainly for speed, the added effect is amazing attak ups with swords dance + baton pass? SCORE) but i thought of what pokemon has really low speed and with sword dance spam, would be un-stoppable, i thought of snorlax, i wouldnt use the snorlax lvl 50 given to you (or battled) mid- gmae in the kanto region of HG SS, so i decied to breed itso i could have mroe control over a better moveset And i could EV train it, (b.c i like the idea of EV training low levels, so i breed one, it was munchlax (w/ full incese held by snorlax.) and i got a careful one, havent used it yet, but maybe i could breed for better neatures for the batlte-position im putting him in,
    any suggestions?
    i was thinking:
    Snorlax (idk good nature) @ life orb
    -giga impact (give or take.)
    -thunder punch
    -outrage? (??? im just thinking of random moves know, arenet i?)
    -superpower (idk, this is why i need help with his moves)
    any help?

    No Giga Impact or Outrage. Giga is just a bad move because of the recharge and Outrage should never be used unless it gets STAB. If you're going to be baton passing speed you should probably use a Jolly nature with 252 attack EVs, 252 speed EVs, and 4 HP EVs.

    As for other moves, you could use Return for STAB, Earthquake, or Crunch.

    well, putting speed EV's is really pointless, it wont change the outcome of who strikes first,b/c snorlax max speed is 113, cant go any higher,so Even amount of def and hp EVs spread, so i he can take more hits with more health

    But you're baton passing him speed boosts from Ninjask. Therefore you should invest in speed to get the most out of those boosts.

    You know, I actually played around with a BP chain like this a while back. I think you should go withÑ
    Earthquake
    Fire Punch
    Body Slam/Return
    Crunch

    It works ridiculously well, since after 3 shots of Speed Boosts and one SD, with a Jolly Nature, Snorlax can usually outspeed and KO most of it's threats. SLap down Toxic Spikes support and Stealth Rock though, to beat opposing Snorlax's and Blisseys faster.

    so you're saying if i were to EV train my ninjask in full speed and attack, i would have to do the same just to get a better outcome?
    wouldnt the ninjask's speed be enough alone? and i could you use my lead (azelf) to set spikes and stealth rocks, than swith to ninjask (possibly after azelf has done his work, maybe explosion just to get rid of the poekmon facing it +free swap pokemon, which i than switch in ninjask and basicclly:
    Ninjask used agility! (speed +)
    Ninjask used agility! (speed +)
    Ninjask used agility! (speed +)
    Ninjask used swords dance (attack +)
    ninjask used baton pass! pass onto snorlax than i have snorlax wreck the team with its current conidtion? awesome,

    Ninjask gets destroyed by stealth rock and should only be used as a lead.
