  1. Pokèmon was part of my childhood, and now I like to play on Showdown and test my strategies on something I grew up with (battling). I have the same passion as before for the franchise but from a totally different perspective.
  2. Hello Everyone!

    Hi and welcome to DI!
  3. Is this safe?

    I am pretty sure 80 degrees isn't a safe temperature. 70 degrees is considered very high usually. Is AC origin well ported on PC or it pretty wacky as a port? Because maybe is the game itself that makes your CPU going this hot.
  4. Thanks for adding EVs and explanations! This really makes the whole thing easier for us. Xurkitree is good IMO. Pelipper is ok, I will prefer Scald over Hydro Pump but it is a matter of preferences here. Also I suggest U-turn in case the foe switch a weather setter, so you do not waste a turn switching and you do some damage (considered you set up tailwind, otherwise Pelipper could be hit and switching is a better option). Rock Slide is a bizarre move on Swampert for me because I think it isn't a worthy move to carry. Can miss, in doubles without STAB/weakness hits weak, and there will be matches where you will never flinch. I prefer this set: Swampert @ Swampertite Ability: Damp EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe Adamant Nature - Waterfall - Earthquake - Ice Punch - Brick Break/Superpower Can still take most hits, very fast under rain, ice punch and fighting move for coverage, just decide if you want a less powerful but spammable move that breaks aurora veil and similar (Brick Break) or a powerful move that will cripple you on longs terms (Superpower). You may remove ice punch since you have hp ice and ice beam on other two mons and put protect here. Ludicolo is also good. Koko is a good option to use among Xurkitree, just be prepared to deal with Ground, Grass, Electric and Dragon typed mons that Xurkitree will struggle against. An ice move practically cover everything except Electric. The other two moves could be stab or anything else. Now just put a mon for Trick Room, so basicall, everything @8BITBRUISER already said. This team could work well, keep us informed if you win or not with it. Hope to be helpful for you.
  5. Please post the EVs of the mons and what you what to do with them, it will simpler for us to understand your team and help you.
  6. he is the best but also Blaziken and the Unowns are among my favourites
  7. This sounds depressing. I wonder how many champions cheat or have cheated just to remain champions.
  8. I dunno which is harder to accept, the fact that Santa is a lie or that Delibird uses his tail as a bag. Either way, Christmas is ruined forever.
  9. Good point. Wasting Evs to max speed when you can't outspeed anything is a waste but it is a common error. If you realize that your mons is still slower than other common treats, just use that points somewhere else and maybe you will be more flexible under Trick Room.
  10. 1) Taunt/fake out to stop Trick Room to set. 2) use slow mons during the Trick Room turns or walls/stall mons to waste the turns 3) reusing trick Room will deactivate it so it could be an option Most of the pain is to recognize possible setters. After a while you will recognize them and you can defend yourself better. Anyway, a slow, bulky mon that can hit hard under Trick Room still is probably the best option.
  11. Wonderful! This will be very useful for VGC beginners and people that started playing competitive Pokemon in general! Really, really excellent work!
  12. Pokemon HeartGold was my first game on the DS. I was in second grade and oh God only knows the hours I spent on it. I remember that I choose Totodile for sheer chance because I was looking at the pokeballs on the touch screen and I didn't realize that the Pokemon was on the upper screen. I remember levelling up only totodile. I remember that I didn't understand how saves work so I spent 2 weeks playing over and over the same thing. I remember that I tried to switch the order of the mons in my team and it scared the shit out of me. I remember spending a month in the little area of the first city because I needed to get the egg and my team was full and I I didn't know about the bank in the pokecenter. I remember Milktank. I remember catching Oh-Ho. I remember using the powder that Oh-ho came with before Lance. It felt like a now-or-never moment. I remember togetic and quagsire somehow destroying the elite 4. I remember my cousin using cheats giving me infinite stuff and spending hours levelling up things. I remember defeating Red. I remember everything. But for me childhood was this, pokemon white (me and my friends fought with cheated mon, and I remember winning most of them) and the cards. Oh, the cards. I spent days playing that game. I bought my first pack cards when i was four and I found Blaziken EX. Played with my grandma with only 9 cards for ages. Then for a birthday I bought like 20 packs of cards for a friend but then my mum said that she already bought a gift for that friend, so I took all the cards. Aaand this is the beginning of a happy childhood.
  13. Perfect work! This is very useful for anyone interested in VGC. Hope to see the next parts soon! P.S.: In the weather setter section, I think you missed Tyranitar (not the mega form) as a setter for sand since he has sand stream also in his base form. Reference
