    Okay, so Bulbapedia keeps going on about how Swords Dance will do nothing if your have a +6 stat bonus or your stat is 999.

    I thought in generation 4 that this limit had been removed and you can still keep using Swords Dance until you have a +6 stat bonus, but it would go past 999.

    I have a question:

    When is a good time to evolve your stone/location/item/trade based Pokemon?

    Say like you're EVing a Growlithe, Staryu, Seadra, Magneton, and you want to evolve them to their next evolution stage. When is a good time to do it?
    Once all of their stats maxed out? Right away? Does it matter? It would be really helpful.

    It depends on said Pokémon and the moveset you are using. For example, for a Choice Specs Starmie with all TM/HM moves, it doesn't matter if I evolved Staryu right away. But if I am using Rapid Spin or Recover instead of Choice Specs, I would need to keep it a Staryu until it learns Rapid Spin and/or Recover, as they both are level-up moves for Staryu, but I don't seem to recall the exact levels for either of those moves. (Starmie doesn't learn those moves at those particular levels as a Starmie)
    Pikachu is my favorite Pokémon.

    To add onto what Pika25 said, moveset is the only thing that will be effected by when you evolve. The time it takes to get to lvl 100, how high your stats are at a certain level - all of that stays the same. The only time it matters is when the unevolved and evolved forms learn different moves.
    If 50 Cent had been STAB'd instead of shot, he would be 75 Cent.

    Would this be a viable moveset for an Umbreon? I put it up on an RMT recently, but got all of 2 responses on the team, and none about Umbreon.

    Umbreon@Leftovers
    Sassy/Relaxed
    EVs: 252 HP/84 Atk/128 Def/40 Sp. Def
    -- Curse
    -- Payback
    -- Quick Attack
    -- Toxic

    Curse is a great move, I think, on Umbreon, boosting it's lower defensive stat and actually putting some power behind it's attacks so that, when it invariably gets Taunted, it can fight back -- with a boosted attack, no less. Payback benefits from the lowered speed, letting Umbreon hit it with boosted power. Quick Attack ignores it altogether, and is the only priority move Umbreon gets. Toxic is to help support the rest of the team, and Leftovers because this set (obviously) doesn't have Wish on it.

    So...what do you think?

    The idea's been done (actually I *might* have been the one who indirectly introduced it into Smogon) and it's been done better, frankly. Wish over Toxic to provide healing for either you or a teammate, and Protect over Quick Attack to ensure that Wish heals you. You could use Baton Pass over Protect if you want so you can pass the Curses you get. Wish is a must though. You have to heal.

    Curse/Payback/Wish/Protect is a MAJORLY annoying set. I've been up against it and it swept my team (of 3) entirely. Now I know why most teams have Steel-types.

    Tch...damn. I really thought I was onto something with that set. Still, you know I trust your judgement, Wiil. Oh well.

    Thumbs up Re: I swear I didn't know we had a *Simple Questions thread* for RMT! (Read First Pos

    Good news...I finally picked up my future Support Shaymin in Diamond (Bold, with perfect Phys. Def. and near-perfect Hit Points, no less). Now all I have do is wait for Platinum to arrive in the US so I can get Earth Power...

    Question(In-game, Link battle, or PBR): What happens when you use Wish, then switch in another pokemon without using Baton Pass? Likewise, what about when the pokemon that used Wish gets knocked out immediately afterwards, or when it uses U-Turn on the next turn? Thanks in advance, and if these have already been answered on this forum, then please provide a link.

    Which generation is that for? Drop Blizzard and Reflect for:
    -----RGBY: Amnesia and Thunderbolt
    -----GSC: Submission and Thunderbolt
    -----RSEFRLG: Depending on Mewtwo's personality, Brick Break and Shadow Ball, or Flamethrower and Thunderbolt
    -----DPPt: Aura Sphere and Shadow Ball, but if you *insist* on keeping Reflect, then use Smogon's PD set with Taunt and Will-O-Wisp instead of the two attacks(both that moveset and the one I recommend use +speed natures, however).
    Avid Advance/Ability/Fire/Imite/Morpheusshipper, because Ash deserves to eventually be with someone who will treat him as an equal, not as a little brother or lesser rival.

    Also supports Coastline(Misty actually *respects* Dorian enough to be able to carry out a healthy romantic relationship with him), Luck(no way in hell Lucy's forgotten about Brock), and Twinleafshipping(as much as I like Kenny as a person, Barry should have gotten his role---and the crush on Dawn---too).

    Gryphon Turboclaw: Wish will still heal the next pokemon if you swap out normally or die.

    I'm new to EV training and I EV'd trained a Girafarig in Sp. Atk. from level 1 to 100. I thought I was doing okay since the sp. atk. stat was the highest but when he finally got to lv. 100 he didn't max out. The stat is high but according to bulbapedia the max is 306 but mine is at around 266ish. I started battling with Gastly, Haunter, Gengar. I moved on to Psyduck and Golduck then I finished with mostly Gloom and Venomoth. He held the Power Lens the whole way through and even had Pkrs at one point.

    What did I do wrong?

    It's probably because it has a low SpAtk IV and either a neutral or hindering nature. With 252 SpAtk EVs, a 31 IV and a neutral nature yields 276- closer to what you have.

    Absolute max SpAtk on a Girafarig with a positive nature is 306.

    Thanks for your input Tina.

    So does this mean I can leave it as is and use it or does it not count as a EV and do I have to start from scratch with another Girafarig with the right IV and Nature?

    You could start again if you really want a new girafarig, but the one you have is fairly strong as is.

    Like Kikatsu says, your Girafarig is strong but if you really want one with a maxed out Sp.A, I'd breed another one and check its IVs with an online calculator such as - http://www.metalkid.info/Pokemon/OnlineProgram/Calculators/IV.aspx

    That way, you don't raise the Pokemon all the way up to 100 just to be disappointed.
