    Quick Question. Does grass knot or low kick get stronger the higher sp. attck or attck my pkmn has? For example my JOlteon has a sp. attck of 300(Yeah I know he cant learn either but its just an example) would that make grass knot stronger or will it always be the other pkmns weight that determines the damage?

    Combination of the two, The Weight of the Foe determines base power of the move, (Light Foes cause GK to hit with the power of absorb, heavy foes cause it hit with the power of solar beam), and the Sp. Attack in GK's case would make it stronger or weaker. Grass Knot would be much weaker coming from Machamp as opposed to Alakazam.

    This question falls a bit between RMT and simple Q/A so I'm asking here just to be safe. I'll try to make the team description breif.

    Rain team
    Politoed holding choice scarf:
    Standard issue drizzle poli. with mainly SP atk and Sp def EVs. very slow, can't even outspeed accelgor when holding choice scarf. powerful hydro pump (stab+rain boost) and able to take a zapdos thunder with just over half HP.

    Accelgor holding focus sash:
    survivor. spamming protect/substitute until low HP or a sub survives. at low HP uses rest (hydration heals status) and surviving sub uses bug buzz.

    porygon-z holding choice specs:
    adaptability hyper beam for singles and my Porygon-Z/accelgor strategy in doubles

    Kingdra holding wide lens:
    swift swim/drizzle you know the drill blizzard for irritating dragons/flying types and ground types alike.

    Toxicroak holding sludge:
    substitute, drain punch, dry skin, black sludge, rain.

    Ferrothornintheside holding big root:
    ingrain prevents any irritating whirlwinds. leech seed, protect, power whip.

    Now for the question:
    I want another strong attacker (kingdra is the only one that fits that description currently) specificly, a no guard, dynamicpunch machamp. Who do I replace on the team? I need politoed, I need to get rid of both accelgor and porygon-Z if I get rid of one. politoed starts the rain, toxicroak, kingdra, and ferrothorn all take advantage of the rain. What do I do?

    You have a pretty solid Rain team though but if you were to replace him your best bet would be on Toxicroak. That way you are carrying to Fighters both weak to Psychic. I sometimes shift out my Toad for Conkledurr.

    1.) Is there any possible way of keeping Meloetta-P without having Relic Song in its moveset? Also, does the Relic Song work in a similar way like Giratina's forms such that Meloetta is in Pirouette (spelling?) already by having the move or does it have to be used first to switch Forme?

    2.) With the advent of B2W2, I was trying create Haxorus sets. I've come up with a Choice variant. Would this be a good one?
    Aqua Tail - allows Haxorus to strike Skarmory with neutral damage at least without the stat drops.
    Outrage / Dragon Claw - STAB
    Earthquake - Good coverage with Dragon Claw or Outrage
    Superpower - Decent coverage move for Blissey and Ferrothorn.

    If I wanted Dragon Dance, what move should I give up?

    It starts always as Aria Forme, and has to use Relic Song in battle to become Pirouette Meloetta. It resets on every switch back to Aria.

    Either Superpower or Aqua Tail, I'd go with giving up Aqua Tail as Superpower still hits Skarm hard.

    Alright, thanks Angad. It's such a shame Pirouette needs all those prerequisites when it has such great stats for sweeping.

    So I saw this cool Exeggcutor on a Youtube video, and I'm trying to recreate it. The person using didn't realise pinch berries were illegal at the time.

    Nature: Quiet (+Satk, - Spd)
    Ability: Harvest
    Item: Petaya berry

    252 HP / 252 Satk / 4 Def

    -Trick Room
    -Psychic
    -Energy Ball/Leaf Storm/Giga Drain
    -HP Ice/Protect

    I tweaked the moveset a good bit, and I'm just guessing EVs and Nature. Does anyone have any suggestions for it?

    Could work on a Trick Room team if people actually do those, and I think Giga Drain would be the preferred option over Energy Ball/Leaf Storm. I've always preferred Giga Drain due to slightly less power but HP restore, and since you've got the investment into HP EVs, Giga Drain could give it a considerable amount of bulk. If Petaya Berry were to be replaced, I think Leftovers could make this a real problem to deal with. Although, depending on the team, I would replace HP Ice with HP Fire, because I can see Pokemon like Scizor or Forretress either completely destroy Exeggutor, or set up with rediculous ease.

    The whole niche behind this is the Petaya Berry/Harvest. Exeggcutor is bulky enough to take a hit or two, then use Trick Room. If it's knocked down to half health, he gets a Satk boost and then the berry replenishes. Leftovers sort of ruins the purpose of it, and same with Giga Drain as Eggy should ideally be below half health at all times.

    I do agree with HP Fire though, especially if it's used in OU. I think Protect is sort of necessary too to try and take advantage of the replenishing berries.

    Oh, that's a good point. Energy Ball would probably work better in that case. Something that has always confused me though is if Recycle is only usable once, or a potentially infinite amount of times. Because if that was the case, you could easily run Leaf Storm, and use Protect to try and get the berry back, in order to regain the stats that were lost from Leaf Storm. Although, I think that getting the boosts and using Energy Ball would still probably be better.
