Don't start flaming me for using ONE non-underused poke. Nor for the combo which 'always' fails. I'm at 8-4, win/losses, now, and 6 of those wins were against standard teams. Mind you, 3 of those losses were against underused teams... :-/.

Umbreon (Miracleberry). AttDV=1
Mean Look
Moonlight
Charm
Baton Pass

You know the drill.

Girafarig (Leftovers).
Amnesia
Return
Crunch
Baton Pass

After the opponent has no attack power, remove all semblance of special attack damage. Then pass to...

Smeargle (Leftovers). AttDV=1
Spore
Baton Pass
Swords Dance
Growth

Can effective BP to any of my remaining pokes, although Arcanine doesn't get as much out of it, due to needing Defense.

Aerodactyl (Leftovers).
Roar
Wing Attack
Ancient Power
Earthquake

Pure sweeper. Has gone through whole teams with 2 Sword Dances, without getting hit. With Amnesia and Swords Dance on it, it fears nothing. Can OHKO Tyranitar or Rhydon before they roar. Skarmory might get lucky, but I eliminate those earlier on with Arcanine or Lanturn.

Lanturn (Leftovers) AttDV=1
Rest
Thunder
Surf
Rain Dance

Was thinking of giving it Mint Berry, but Leftovers seems to serve well. Rather lethal, if not killed off, quickly.

Arcanine (Leftovers)
Rest
Flamethrower
Curse
Extremespeed

Still occasionally seen in teams, but underused for the most part. Support, should the standard BP idea fail (I hate it when they get a CritHit as soon as I bring Smeargle out, with 3 Amnesia, and them with 3 Charms...). Rest + Curse + Amnesia = evil.

Rate away.

Indeed I do. Watch for incoming Fighters and those messed up Starterlaxen ( [Smile] ), but it's sufficiently nasty enough for me.

Girafarig (Leftovers).
Amnesia
Return
Crunch
Baton Pass

meehage. Meebe Psychic over Crunch just in case you DO trap a Fighter.

Smeargle (Leftovers). AttDV=1
Spore
Baton Pass
Swords Dance
Growth

I had a LOT of fun with Belly Drum over 'Dance (and Agility over Growth, but hey). Of course, the survivability of a BDed Smeargle even with the lowered attacking capabilites...

Aerodactyl (Leftovers).
Roar
Wing Attack
Ancient Power
Earthquake

And I was just going to suggest that you stick Fire Blast on for Skarm. Ah well.

Lanturn (Leftovers) AttDV=1
Rest
Thunder
Surf
Rain Dance

Good enough, though Confuse Ray can aid in the annoyance (over Rest).

Arcanine (Leftovers)
Rest
Flamethrower
Curse
Extremespeed

Prole standard, good enough for what you're using it for.

Rate away.

Whirlwind > Roar, barely, simply because Whirlwind can hit pokes during the move Fly. And Aerodactyl can learn both. Either way, Minty Rest is simply devastating on a poke that almost always gets it in.

What Nintendo doesn't want you to know
Uiru: "Now that we're all used to the rules, clauses and by-laws... what would happen to the metagame if every one of them were whipped away?"
GP-Chan: "id probably quit every battle, and not just every other battle."
ThumbsOfSteel: "Why, because they broke the rules?"
