    Bumping because I actually have a valid question. So I was wondering which one would be better as a Rapid Spin Blocker.

    The basic overveiw for this is that most Rapid Spinners are weak to a combination of Rotom's electricity and the special move it gains from its forme. Donphan, Starmie, Tentacruel, Foretress--all common rapid spinners, and all hit super effective or neutral by either a combination of electricity and water or grass. All the rapid spinners, even the uncommon ones are hit super effective and neutral, though it seems Wash has a slight advantage being able to hit Armaldo.


    Rotom (W)@Choice Scarf
    Modest Nature
    EVs: 120 HP/252 SAtk/136 Spd
    ~Thunderbolt/Thunder
    ~Hydropump
    ~Trick
    ~Will-o-wisp/Thunderwave/Raindance

    Basically EVed to be faster than Starmie with Choice Scarf to allow me to hit it with Thunderbolt and the rest of the EVs were spread into SAtk and HP. Thunderbolt and Hydropump gets most rapid spinners with a super effective hit. Apart from the Starmie factor, the Choice Scarf is there to screw over anyone trying to switch in on it with trick, though Garchomp becomes a problem if it predicts the obvious--unless it doesn't know I'm not scarfed. Its really more of a support Pokemon so I'll probably be adjusting the nature and EVs a bit more. Thunder and Rain Dance for Rain teams.

    Rotom (M)@Choice Scarf
    Modest Nature
    EVs: 120 HP/252 SAtk/136 Spd
    ~Thunderbolt
    ~Leaf Storm
    ~Trick
    ~Will-o-wisp/Thunderwave

    Basically the same deal as abovewhen facing Starmie, except I'm not an open door to Garchomps and Electivires, though Heatran gets its switch in and less super effective coverage. Though it is more powerful on Donphan and a better accuracy.


    Rotom (F)@Choice Scarf
    Modest Nature
    EVs: 120 HP/252 SAtk/136 Spd
    ~Thunderbolt
    ~Blizzard
    ~Trick
    ~Will-o-wisp/Thunderwave

    You know, this would be the obvious choice for my Hail teams just as Wash is the obvious choice for Rain teams. Basically the same deal as the first two, except I don't have to fear Garchomps ^_^. I mean it is just too obvious what a Rotom will do up against a Starmie, and Blizzard will still hurt. I wonder if a Dragon Claw would kill me, because even if I give Garchom scarf, I will just stay in and try to kill it.

    So anyone who makes a lame comment on how you are locked into a move when using choice items obviously did not read the comments, or else they would know that it is there to screw over my opponents while giving me the luxury of being faster than Starmie without scarf. I mean come on, using Choice scarf to set up status isn't that bad either.

    So these are basically the only three Rotoms that I feel are useful for this purpose. Luckily they'd all have the same spread, so I only really need to train one :P

    I have a Purugly that I call sleepy.
    Why you may ask? Three of it's moves have to do with sleeping.
    Rest
    Sleep Talk
    Hypnosis
    Last Resort

    Is this a good or bad idea?

    Hi, I'd like to transform you into a yeti.
    Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches.

    It's a fun idea, but not a very good one. Purugly isn't really bulky enough to pull off a Restalk set, plus, with only Last Resort as an attacking move, you can't do anything to Rock/Steel/Ghost Pokemon after sleep clause is activated, making you really easy to set up on. I like the idea a lot, but it won't work competitively.
    If 50 Cent had been STAB'd instead of shot, he would be 75 Cent.

    Shinx3000 - The eevee forms that work with modest are :-
    Espeon
    Jolteon
    Vaporeon
    Glaceon

    4 out of 7 as you can see =P
    I prefer jolteon to the rest because of its really high speed.....

    I'd say Vaporeon and Glaceon only for Modest because Jolteon and Espeon like a +Spd nature.

    Either that, or Flareon..

    According to Bulbapedia, no. Neither Shedinja or Nincada have it. However, you could try breeding one. Make sure the female is a Nincada and the male is compatible and has Swords Dance and/or Agility. Don't expect it to work, though.

    As for the Nature, either Lonely or Naughty, as you don't have to worry about Defense or Sp. Defense, and Shedinja's highest stat is Attack.

    It can do both. If it has decent special attack and a special-based movepool, it can go special-based. >_>

    Also, you get Swords Dance/Agility by evolving a Nincada exactly at either level 25/38, respectively. As it evolves into Ninjask it'll attempt to learn the move you want, teach it, and Sheddy should have it.

    I don't know. I only looked at the moveset in Bulbapedia. I probably didn't even notice them.

    Okay...so I want to use the Togepi I got from Cynthia competitively, and after a few resets, here's what I got:

    Mild nature, Mischievous
    Ability: Hustle

    I don't have IVs, but it's Special Attack is enormous, physical attack is so-so, and speed is also rather so-so. I figure with Aura Sphere, Air Slash, Extremespeed, and something else (at present it'll be my Fly-er, but that's only for in-game -- maybe Shadow Ball?), and holding a Wide Lens, little Spectre will be bringing on some major pain. Oh, and it's HP is Grass.

    I feel like I'm missing something, though...can anyone spot what? I haven't EV trained her seriously yet, and don't even have a Shiny Stone to evolve her.

    Hustle? Serence Grace is a better ability.

    Yeah...but it means that Extremespeed is going to get a power boost, and I wasn't willing to test my luck at getting a highly probable 31 IV Special Attack stat with a +Sp. Atk. nature again just so I could have the other ability. I also think the accuracy drop could be mended with a Wide Lens, which I have the Coins to buy.
