Okay, the reversal strat is good, but that's a real gimmicky set and item. -- Yeah, you give them a turn by switching, but then you have the matchup in your favor because you'll likely send in a counter, and the opponent is forced to use a pokemon that gets countered by one of your pokes, which is huge in a 3v3. That gives you both a free turn (because the opponent will switch) + you have an answer to one of their pokemon + two more slots, while the opponent has to use one less slot remaining to send the next Pokemon. Momentum is completely in favor of the side that switches.
Okay, I see what kind of items it is. I don't see anyone using that effectively though tbh, unless used with mirror coat, counter, or metal burst on a fresh switch. Bulky slow pokemon lose ALL countering capabilities and bluk and fast and frail pokemon can counter only ONCE, and then the opponent will switch out and you're left with something that dies to stealth rocks if switched out. -- Yeah, I think it's cool if it were like that: Choose between all Ancillary or none Ancillary. I could definitely use something like that to stop myself from bringing VGC pokemon to an OU match like a complete retard. -- Skill Link Gren is interesting since ninjas are skilled and it can finally make water shuriken viable (75BP STAB priority is pretty boss). Though I don't think it's enough to warrant a physical Gren if it doesn't have gunk shot or low kick. LOL nobody will use a 150 physical non-STAB recoil move on Alakazam anyway, so no big deal. I don't see the point of this 'mulligan' business, since if you think about it for a second who WOULDN'T switch? You basically send out anything (smart choice to bring a dark resist for pursuit), switch out, and you just scouted one pokemon for free. Of course, most smart battlers would switch out as well, so it essentially becomes a match that starts turn 2. The only time you wouldn't switch is if one of your pokemon wreck the entire opposing team, in which case the opponent is probably going to lose anyway. Veto singles is a cool concept if both sides make their choices at the same time.
Hmm, I like that effect. It can either set up for a very late game sweep when everything is in range, or as an opener to punch holes in the opponent's team.------ Not sure if I understood that correctly. So it's essentially a 100% focus band that blocks passive damage as well? Won't that still cause the endless battle clause we talked about? ---- I think it's better if you can only switch one pokemon to its Ancillary set (similar to mega evolutions in the games. One per team). Otherwise it's just going to be about counter-teaming and nothing else, and I feel like there's more strategy and thought involved if you're allowed to make only one change to your team during team preview. It also makes you think about which set to make the Ancillary set for each pokemon since 5 of them have to use their normal sets. As it is right now, it's essentially bring 12, choose 6, which isn't really appealing imo. It's also making me suspicious about Greninja breaking the game, considering it got an offensive boost, ability boost, and now this essentially negates its 4MSS.
Ah, it's pretty much the opposite for me. My parents made sure that I learned English so that it helps me in the long run. I mean, the only place Japanese comes in handy is Japan, while English is pretty much THE global language. The result is what you're reading right now (or, in the case of my videos, listening to) I guess.
I was going around for break, so didn't have time (nor internet) for a few days, sorry to keep you waiting. Haha yeah I get that a lot, but no, I'm not American. I learned English starting from a very young age, so accents never got in the way. Hell, my first English sentences were phrases from Sesame Street lol.
Happy new year! Yeah, I'm not at that page yet but I did find it a bit odd that protean became even better than it is, although it's something pretty minor. I'm still a bit busy with new years but I'll get a bulk of the feedback done when I have a free day. Goodnight.
I wanted to ask you real quick; what did you think of ORAS? I myself haven't been able to bring myself to pick up and finish the main game, leaving me stuck at the sixth gym. I don't know if I'm going through another Pokemon burnout or what, but I feel guilty because I promised a few friends that I would like to battle them, and I haven't even began to start constructing a team.
Hmm interesting. I guess it makes sense considering they'd either break the story or they're already caught by the protagonists in the games in the past. Heatran is a strange pokemon, since it's status as a legendary is often disputed. I don't really consider it and the Latis as legendaries myself, since there's nothing really legendary about it aside from the inability to breed (But then ditto... *gets shot by the pokemon illuminati*). By the way, I'm not too familiar with google drive: how do I write comments while viewing from the link? I can only comment after downloading them to my drive, but idk if it's reflected on your version.
Hello. Christmas was great. My presents this year were pretty much clothes and stuff lol. Lucky you! My circle pad is broken too (while playing smash, what a surprise), but I probably won't get a new 3DS because my old one has a capture card I still want to do stuff with. Cool, I'll take a look at them and get back to you when I'm done. Shadow tag Cofagrigus can be interesting. I think it's too early to say it's broken since it's similar to Goth, but access to Will-o-wisp and being a ghost type might change that. I'll look deeper into it before I jump into conclusions.
I had a nice, cozy Christmas with my close family. This was the first time in years we stayed home instead of driving up and down the east coast. I got some practical items (sheets, warms clothes, etc.) and some money to spend on whatever. I have a few ideas on some video games I can spend some of it on while putting the rest away in the bank. BTW Happy belated Birthday. :^Y
