    Well, I usually like to test my new guys in a 'real battle' setting to see what utility I can get out of them. If you don't mind fighting a full team of mine we could do it.

    Oh hey mrs nackroad, I haven't seen you in a while.

    I haven't touched pokemon in a while.

    And now the Garchomp I trained for surprise rape in my "Mr Nifty and friends" rain dance team is banned.

    Now I'm trying to play it in Japanese.

    I haven't gotten very far, for language barrier reasons.

    And I'm still not mrs nackroad, jerkbag

    It's okay Mr. Nabisco, you can just use the much prettier DD Dragonite.

    Man, fuck your Puff the Magic Dragon, Mr Nifty EATS Dragonite for a mid-afternoon meal replacement.

    Yay, good to see that WoW hasn't taken you completely over, Mrs Nackroad. You should have played Halo tonight, Thrill got an awesome Double Splatter with a Hornet of all things.

    I don't have a spare Stone Edge. I've got 28 BP saved up, so it wouldn't be too much of an imposition to get you a Power Herb with my Starmie/Infernape/Torterra dream team. A U-Turn would be way easier though.

    I think I have a Spare Stone Edge, who needs it?


    Also, Dragonite is better, and you know it.

    By the way, cool water-type. I suggest you use Surf over Water Pulse.

    I wanted to see how much it would do with Tbolt on a special wall- pretty good.

    If you can get the Power Herb that would be great.
    Once I have that Herb I don't think i'll really need anything else from the Tower. Maybe just some extras of TMs or something.

    That's true.


    This is the part where I'd switch on something meant to take hits.

    Oh, not choiced then.

    lol Quick Claw. Just FYI, that's not usually worth it, stick on a Leftovers or Life Orb if you don't want it choiced.

    Well, anyway, you did pretty well. Though fainting Gengar was kinda random. Smile got a bit of action and seems good.

    Funny thing, Metagross has Life Orb and Slowking has Leftovers. I know, I know, bad choice.


    Hmm. Earthquake is a weakness of mine. Also, even considering the remaining Pokemon I wish to get, I don't have much against water types.

    Also, it was personally reasonable to switch Mence into Smile, exept as you saw he hits exceedingly hard and happens to hold a certain item of IVE SAID TOO MUCH

    Slowking should have your leftovers but Gross could have a different item if you wanted.

    Honestly, I just wanted to be a showoff. Knowing that you would have outspeeded it either way, I should have brought in Ttar.


    EDIT: Well, I need to get some Choice Items, and the Slowtyranigross team seems to work moderately well in the BT,


    You were testing the Smile, right? It seems pretty nice. Don't worry, I was oblivious to any battle details besides "IT USES NON-FIRE SPECIALS, CHECK".

    EDIT: Does anyone have a relaxed Pineco? I have some egg move Pokemon I could trade.


    EDIT: Pokerus is multiplicative, right? Is fighting a Golduck with Macho Brace and Pokerus worth 6 Special Attack EVs, or 8?

    Do you mean Macho Brace, or maybe a power item? It wasn't really clear, and depends.

    If Macho Brace, you get 8- 2x2x2. If Power Lens (the SpA one) you get 12- (2+4)x2.

    Sorry for the double post, but if, in an attempt to use a Vitamin on a Pokemon, it says "It won't have any effect", does that mean I've maxed out that stat's EVs?

    Nope or maybe!

    What it means is you have at least 100 evs in that stat - vitamins won't do anything past that point.

    I ground the Socialite and her partner (with the Amulet Coin, of course) near the Pokémon Mansion last night for CASHMONIES while watching Tank Girl.

    Now I'm all out of money 'cause I spent it all on vitamins for training purposes. Is there an easier way to get money, or are those two the best source?

    So I finished training my fourth one last night. All that remains is to find the last two I need, and I can begin.

    Well, I have four. As long as none of your testing is dependent on walls, I have four ready to go, excepting one minor detail.
