    Electrode, Azelf, Ambipom

    You can look up the move on Smogon and sort Pokemon by stats by clicking the little arrows next to it and going from there.

    Before posting in Battle Strategies, please read the rules and simple questions stickies!

    Still rating competitive teams via VM/PM, as well as accepting questions or discussion about battle strategies.
    Pro-tip: Wondercard events can't be shiny unless they're set to be always shiny like PCP.

    I'm creating a hail team, and i'm wondering whether a flamethrower & toxic moltres would be better than a will-o-wisp & air slash one. I've looked at smogon but i'm really unsure which one to go for. Any help would be appreciated, thanks :)

    The former is generally better because Toxic adds to Hail's residual damage and is actually meant for stalling whereas WoW can be stuck on any generic Moltres. Also, from the analysis:
    Air Slash can be paired with Will-O-Wisp for a set designed to counter physical threats. However, Arcanine outclasses Moltres in this role, especially with Intimidate and a lesser Stealth Rock weakness.

    Yeah, i read that and thought the toxic route was the better option. I just thought I'd get someone else's opinion. Thanks.

    How do I calculate boosts from abilities, items and weather conditions?

    For rain would I find half of the pokemon's attack/sp. atk stat and add it to its attack/sp. atk stat for when its using a water move. For example kingdra, should it be using a water move, be backed by a 475.5 base attack/sp. atk stat because its max in each area is 317, divide it by two (158.5) and add it to 317 and you'll get 475.5. Is this correct?

    Is this method the same for abilities and items?

    how much is a stage boost/subtraction?

    Does a perfect Speed IV matter for walls like Blissey and Dusknoir?

    I don't think they do. They aren't built to sweep in most cases, so a perfect speed IV wouldn't really benefit them. It might let them outspeed certain things, that they wouldn't normally (not sure though), but i doubt that it will make a huge difference. Imo, i don't care about a walls speed, cos they are just built to wall and not sweep, normally. :)

    I thought so, but I just wanted to make sure; you can never be too careful.

    Nope because they don't need any speed at all.

    Actually, Dusknoir should have a speed iv of at least 26 to outspeed 0 speed forretress with a perfect speed iv. Blissey it doesn't really matter, but as noir is usually a spin blocker, it helps to outspeed the spinner and use painsplit, etc
    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.

    Noir would never outspeed starmie. It can be so hard to spin these days and starmie can sweep as well as spin. I thought starmie was a more popular spinner.

    forry is the most popular spinner by far, followed by starmie, tentacruel, and then donphan. While starmie is the mot common pokemon learning rapid spin, being used about twice as much as forry, it only carries rapid spin about half the time. Forry carries it like always
