  2. You need to train very hard and focus your team on their weakness(fire to grass water to fire grass to water ect.)
     
  3. Thats the easier way to do it. You have to get in to training your pokemon and getting the right move sets.

    EV training I think would help but sadly I can't help you there.

    What's Thunder-dance? o.o

    Anyways, I moved this here because its a bit more appropriate. Can you tell us what Pokemon you're using, their current movements, or which ones your friend uses? The more info you can give, the more people can help you out.

    Btw - did you have any interest in learning about EV training, or do you already have a vague idea at it? It definitely can give you an edge over your opponent.

    I'm assuming he means the evil Rain Dance/Thunder combo.
     
  6. yea the rain-dance thunder combo XD...i beleave his team consist of Lucario, Luxray, Leafion, Ralts new male form, and thats all i know at the moment, he has EV trained them to the max, i tought myself to EV, and at the moment i have a Glacion, working on Luxray, the move sets i chose fit my EV training and nature selection. I am looking into an Arcanine and a Tyranitar, prehaps even a Garchomp but i havent decided yet.

    Glacion - Nature: Modest - EVed in Sp.Atk and Def
    Moveset:
         Ice Beam
         Hail
         Blizzard
         Mirror Coat

    Luxray - Nature: Adamant - EVed in Atk and Speed
    Moveset:
         Crunch
         Thunder Fang
         Thunder
         Ice Fang

    Oh and i EVed them with the Macho Brace and Pokeres if that counts for anything...and thanks for moving the topic 4 me linkachu


    Edit: I thought of a team up that seems to be a bit brutial if it works right...not sure if anyones tried it...Blazkin and Lucario...

    Well, you got the right natures, that'll give you an edge to start, but let's tweak these movesets a bit.

    Glaceon
    -Ice Beam
    -Hail
    -Water Pulse
    -Mirror Coat/Shadow Ball

    I basically just took out Blizzard, there's no need for two Ice-type attacks. Ice Beam already has power and accuracy, let's not sacrifice that for more power and less accuracy. Glaceon already has monstrous Special Attack anyway, and that stat is further boosted by its Modest Nature. AND Ice Beam gets STAB. Let me just tell you that anything with an Ice weakness doesnt stand a chance.

    Hail is there obviously because of Glaceon's Ability, Snow Cloak, which raises evasion when its Hailing, plus its a good annoyance.

    One guess at why Water Pulse is there, :p Fire-types that think they can best you? BAM! WATER PULSED! >:0 Works on Rock and Ground-types too...

    Mirror Coat is definitly useful, but in the end I'd go with Shadow Ball. Decent power and its a nice surprise to your foes.

    Unofortunatly Glaceon's Speed betrays it, so don't get too cocky with it. EVing in Speed will help to raise that speed a bit, but you'll still have to be smart.

    Yeah, and for Luxray, no Thunder for him. Go with either Swagger or Return. If you go with Swagger be smart with it, as it is a risky move to begin with, but SO worth it if used right. Use right means NOT using it on a Pocket Monster that specializes in Attack, like Weavile for example, that's a death sentence right there. Instead use it on Special Attackers, like Jynx or Starmie for example, something you KNOW doesn't deal with Attacking moves.

    If that doesn't work for you then Return is fine. Very nice power, that is if your Luxray loves you to death.
