    I think this may be a good home for this question.
    I recently battled a Mega Aggron.
    First turn I use tailwind, he Megas and OHKO.
    I send out a Perfect Speed IV Flygon with maxed speeds EVs... and he hits me first.

    I know he is tanky, but wow. Is Mega Aggron really that fast or does he have hidden jet thrusters on him?

    Flygon did use Dragon Tail. He only had a sliver of health after taking a Heavy Slam though. D:
    Does Dragon Tail have a negative priority?

    would it be good for an
    aegislash to have a speed iv of zero if I want to use kings shield every other turn, and attack on others to make sure he makes use of his kings shield defensive stats?

    Aegislash should run 31 Speed and 12 Speed EVs to outrun Sassy Tyranitar and hit it with Sacred Sword before it Crunches. Obviously if you aren't using Brave or Quiet you don't need investment but other natures compromise his mixed attacking stats and a non-mixed Aegislash is a suboptimal Aegislash.

    Do stat changes stay with a pokemon if it switches out, so lets say I use quiver dance on my volcarona, and switch to my tyranitar, and switch back to volcarona, will it keep the quiver dance boosts?

    I think I already know the answer, but figured I'd ask -- can you make a Talonflame that's impossible to hit?

    Gale Wings makes Flying moves +1 Priority. If you had it and used Fly, you'd be guaranteed to fly up before the opponent strikes. But does the second round of Fly factor in Gale Wings? If not, if you had 0 Speed IV and a -Speed Nature and no Speed EVs, maybe even hold Iron Ball too, so that you had really low Speed, your opponent might go first.

    So it'd be like...
    Turn 1: You use Fly, your opponent uses whatever and misses.
    Turn 2: Your opponent uses whatever and misses, you then hit with Fly.

    Presumably that wouldn't happen, I'm guessing the second turn of Fly does indeed factor in Gale Wings, but does anyone know for sure? Has anyone tried this? Nintendo has been known to overlook some programming stuff before.

    No, but if you use Baton Pass (which Volcarona can't learn, though), you can pass stat changes from one Pokemon to another. It's a powerful strategy if you use it right. Imagine using Gorebyss and Baton Passing Shell Smash (lowers Def and Sp Def by one stage each, raises Atk, Sp Atk and Spd by two each) to Greninja @_@

    Theoretically that works, as in if the opponent is stupid you're set. But things like Thunder, Hurricane, Pokémon who are naturally slower than you, and especially negative priority moves will fuck you up. Dragon Tail always goes last, so it will hit you decently hard and then you lose 50% from Stealth Rock the next time you switch in. So yeah, completely nonviable, especially considering that you have much better things you could be doing with Talonflame.

    In the Battle Spot Bring-Six-Choose-Three format, what would you say are the essential "roles" to fill as you're building your team?

    If you're just filling 3 roles, I would personally fill them with 3 sweepers. However in a set of 6 Pokemon its nice to have a scout, someone who can set up and 2-4 sweepers. I don't really find Walls that useful. Just a way to delay the inevitable.

    Fair enough, I suppose entry-hazards and the like would have diminished utility in that format. As far as walls go, though, my Chansey wreaks havoc on Battle Spot.

    Can anything with Magic Guard learn Knock Off? Knock Off+ Sticky Barb seems interesting...
