    Porygon2 and Chansey aren't NFE though. Unless they're included too?

    Chansey is UU and Porygon2 is NU.

    tbh I would think that NFEs are NFEs regardless of their tier. If they were excluded, Pikachu and Trapinch would be banned too. I don't know the specific rules though.

    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 don't know them either, but I think that would exclude a lot of possible Pokemon.

    I mean, if you can use Chansey, how fair is that?

    Well, that would explain it.

    But I think s/he said NFE/NU? I don't think that's middle cup.

    I'm pretty sure what was meant is that UU NFEs aren't allowed (i.e. Scyther, Chansey).

    Yeah, that's what I thought too. NUs wouldn't do too well then. Heh.

    Pikachu is a really bad Electric type to use in OU. It's so frail that it falls quickly to any EQ user. Light Ball can give it a bit of a chance, but overall it's completely outclassed by Jolteon, Magnezone, and even ELectivire (especially ELectivire...that thing can do a full sweep with one Speed Boost). But if you really want to, here's my advice:
    FIrst of all, you NEED a Light Ball. Itdoubles the rodent's Attack and Special Attack, and is the only thing at gives it hope. Secondly, you need Substitute as a move. Without it, Pikachu will easily be revenge killed by Dugtrio. The rest of the moves generally differ on what you want to use your Pikachu for. I'd recommend a Special Sweeper set, with Thunderbolt and Hidden Power Ice (Again, for Dugtrio), and Grass Knot to round out coverage. Obviously, I'm going by the book here, since Pikachu doesn't have that many viable options.
    EV spread, max out Special Attack and Speed, and put the rest in Defense. it won't do you much good, but it'll hopefully give you one extra point that might save your life one day (not likely, but who knows?).

    If my Aerodactyl used Taunt on an Empoleon, and said Empoleon used Hydro pump the same move, would Hydro pump work and bring my Aerodactyl to its Focus Sash?

    Taunt only prevents "non-attacking" moves. Hydro Pump is an attacking move. Depending on the EVs of both pokemon the focus sash may/may not be activated

    yeah true, but what if i baton pass, an agility and
    use ninjask for a bit, then maybe get either a swords dance or nasty plot in and get to pikachu?
    also Dugtrio is rarely used in OU so i doubt he would be a threat

    goldenpoke: he said dugtrio because it traps pikachu. Anything with priority or with above base 90 speed (i think) can kill it. Its just that you can swith out. If you plan to send boosts to it, why not send them to jolteon or magnezone, or raichu, manectric, 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.
