    Default VGC '11: Needs Comments and suggestions

    Here's the basics on my team. I haven't worked out exact strategies yet so I am accepting suggestions. I also need Items for a few.

    Galvantula Timid @ Focus Sash
    4 hp/4 att/252 sp. att/248 Spe
    CompundEyes
    Thunder
    HP Ice
    Bug Buzz
    Protect

    The 2 Attack EVs were given by mistake so fml basically. Galvantula is usually one of my leads along with the next guy.

    Terrakion Hardy @ Choice Scarf
    8 hp/248 att/252 spe
    X-Scissor
    EQ
    Rock slide
    Sacred Sword/Close Combat

    Im thinking about scrapping this guy due to nature and less desirable IVs but Im stuck with them unless I get a new one. I am also undecided on last move between those two moves

    Golurk Adamant @ Ghost Gem
    252 hp/236 att/20 spe
    Iron Fist
    Shadow Punch
    Hammer Arm
    Rock Slide
    EQ

    I use this guy to try to get rid of some common TR users and maybe to hit other guys hard

    Carracosta Adamant @ uncertain
    220 hp/196 att/92 sp def
    Solid Rock
    Aqua Jet
    Rock Slide
    Wide Guard
    Waterfall

    dont have a real strategy for Carracosta Yet

    Archeops Jolly @ Flight Gem
    4 hp/252 att/252 spe
    Quick Attack
    Acrobatics
    Rock Slide
    Protect

    I use this pretty bird to kill amoongus and other troublesome things

    I also want a suggestion for last back-up

    In Mind:
    Meinshao

    you can use ev reducing berries and feathers to adjust evs. also , you left out evs for the last 4 pokemon
    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.

    You can get them from DW, what will you do if you face a tailwind team? or Rain Dance? Or Sandstorm?

    Much love to Zurr

    I'm not sure yet, thats why I am taking suggestions.
    How would Sandstorm be a problem when half my team is rock and ground?

    Sandstorm would be a problem because of the abusers: Excadrill, Garchomp, Landorus, Gliscor, and more.

    Garchomp and gliscor are not allowed in vgc and I think I can handle excadrill and landorus

    Keep in mind that the winner of the Seattle VGC led with a Thundarus and Landorus (Discharge + EQ). I would expect this to be VERY common in the near future as people watch the video, so it would be advisable that you can defeat these two without taking massive damage.

    Do you have the link by any chance?

    If tailwind wasnt used, I can almost OHKO landorus with Hidden Power ICe Galvantula, and choice scarf Terrakion can Rock slide the Thundurus. Unless if that is too predictable and they stop it.

    Yeah I would just run possible outcomes in my head and see which ones let you come out on top. Maybe Terrakion could make use of Protect either in addition to or instead of Galvantula. I'm not an experienced VGC player, so I won't be too much help!

    Here are links to the semi finals and finals of the Seattle regional :)

    Smogon has a lot of material on VGC, it wouldn't hurt to read up. There is still a good chance you'll lose to some idiot with insane luck, but at least you'll be prepared :D
