    For a Torterra with Crunch, SE, and EQ, what would complement the set better, Seed Bomb or Wood Hammer?

    Seed Bomb. Since this Torterra lacks recovery, it can't afford Wood Hammer's recoil.

    Bold nature (+Def, -Atk)
    - U-turn
    - Gravity
    - Wish
    - Thunder

    this is mostly so it can support other gravity sweepers and do some damage. Its used as a lead mostly.
    Well like I said, I can't change the nature at this point. But you know what? I just realized my set's completely decimated by Magnezone's "Steel Killer" set. And a -Atk nature means Fire Punch will most likely not be a one-hit KO on the flying saucer, doesn't it? Argh.

    Also, I just EV trained a sweeper Yanmega today. The moveset I have planned is Protect, Air Slash, Bug Buzz, and either Shadow Ball or AncientPower. Shadow Ball covers Ghost-types, but AncientPower is a surprise Super-Effective hit on Staraptor and Gyarados (among others). Which one should I go with?

    Huh? Oh...I guess I should explain, I was gonna run the Life Orb Sweeper set (substituting with Wise Glasses), not the Lead set. Sorry.

    EDIT: I just caught a Timid-natured Muddy Water Horsea, but the only Timid set on Smogon is the Choice Specs set. Would there be any advantages to running a Timid Rain Dance Sweeper? As in, would there be anything it'd outspeed that a Modest-natured one wouldn't?

    Ok, so I want to make a Subseed Jumpluff (Subseed, Sleep Powder, Encore), and I have two potential candidates:

    Jolly 22-23/x/30-31/x/30-31/31
    Timid 30-31/x/30-31/x/26-27/31

    I'm kind of leaning towards the Jolly one, since Leech Seed will restore a greater percentage of my health if my overall health is lower. I believe this makes it better to choose a defensive drop in HP as opposed to SpDef.

    I dunno though, what would you guys do?

    I'd go for the Jolly one due to a few reasons:
    1) Yes leach seed will restore more when needed.
    2) I usually play more of Heavy offense so Timid- not really.

    think about it like this:
    the defense in both are equal
    HP and the jolly's special defense are "equal"
    jolly's HP is lower than timid's SPD, so go timid.

    And what does Heavy offense have to do with timid/jolly arguement, since there are no attacking moves
    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.

    I recommend that you use the Timid one and give the Jolly one to me :D

    Does magnet pull prevent both pokemon from switching out, or just the foe?

    Ok, so people here seem to be leaning towards Timid Jumpluff. The few other people I asked also did. I realized that because EVs on Subseed Jumpluff are set up to equalize the defenses, I could do a direct and easy numerical analysis of bulk.

    Any way you look at it, the Timid Jumpluff is 1.9% bulkier than the Jolly one. So Timid it is, I guess.

    What is the best (Non Uber)Parnter for Linoone to kill off Steels and Ghosts? Me and a few Friends are having a Tag team tournament, where we have to use only two pokemon. One was randomly selcted from a Pokemon generator (I got Linoone) and the other is our choice.

    Hmmm... well, Lucario hits hard with Shadow Claw and Close Combat to clean up the mess.

    scarf salamence or flygon can kill them with crunch and fireblast (and EQ). Miltank/khangaskhan with scrappy focus punch do the trick, but need a sub
