Battle-Trade-RaidNot a thread for hacks. Please make your own thread.
>>53816415This is the 1st shiny I captured myself. Full odds was not hunting for it.
>>53816476cool story, bro
im down for a battle tonight
would anyone be willing to do a trade back with Miraidon? Last one I need to complete the dex
>>53816967battles tonight for sure
>>53817484will you be online in about an hour? watching this celtics/heat game right now
>>53817741nah, im sleeping soon for work tomorrow.s-surely games tomorrow..
>>53817748i dont know. maybe on the weekend when im free
>>53817167Sure thing, post a code. By any chance do you have a friend ball? Wanted to get one before the Chesnaught rerun, if not that's fine
>>53817980I do have a friend ball. I'll just give a mudbray that's holding it. Code will be 538179.
>>53818031Thank you very much! Enjoy your shiny charm
>tfw we can't even hold the wifi-general alive in the newest game in an installment
>>53818476Should have gone with the 3DS games, you don't need online sub for it.
>>538186423ds games give me headaches
>>53818710Turn off the 3D slider then
>>53818743the problem isn't the 3d slider, it's the fact that the screens are so small. i've got absolutely abysmal eyesight.
>>53821158>>53819127Excited about Home coming soon. Curious about the pokeball and evolution details. It seems like theres a lot of back and forth between switch games but that sounds to good to be true.
Finally HOME will come so I can clean up SV's boxes and hatch some things
I need help to evolve finizen. Can somebody help me?Code: 8V0Y5N
>>53816476Matt you always seem behind on everything, I remember you posting a shiny raid when SWSH was 2 years in its cycle and most of the raids left where just hacked, now you are posting shinies when most people have them because they are easy as shit to get in this game.
>>53821738Dude just give me some breedjects then delete them
>needing this many bumpsJust let it die, there's obviously not enough interest right now with a lot of regulars playing Zelda.
Have raids started for you guys? I can't find the Chesnaught raid
>>53824092Did you check Poképortal news?
>>53824092considering how bugged the raids are right now with the iron treads/great tusk, i'd assume something fucky is going on in general.in short, don't do the treads/tusk raids, it'll try to give you a TM that's not in the game and it crashes the game
>bored and looking for something different team-wise on youtube, just so i can have something to watch while shiny hunting>all of these clickbait channels with sub-1k subscribers saying THIS AND THAT ARE STUPIDLY OVERPOWERED AND NOBODY KNOWS YET!!!!>"it has the potential to do some of the most dps IN THE GAME">it's just a weakness policy guts fling build>on a fucking luxrayi swear it all went downhill after it apparently became okay to clickbait on youtube because wolfey glick does it.
>>53824785Would fling WP luxray actually work?
>I can now breed Galar starters in apriballs>in Galar>Only took 3 yearsWhy do they do this in the first place?
>>53825465The setup is basically like this:You bring a Jumpluff holding a flame orb next to Luxray with Guts holding WP. Luxray protects and Jumpluff sets up tailwind turn 1.Turn 2 the Luxray teras into psychic. Jumpluff uses fling onto Luxray, since it's super effective now, triggers WP. When you fling a flame orb, it has a 100% chance to burn, so now you have a Luxray with Guts, with a burn and a weakness policy activated.Problem? The most common pokemon in the entire format right now is an incredibly fast ghost type, and some of the other mons that are very common are all dark types. All that, to set up a Luxray of all things, a mon with such an infamous terrible TM move pool that one of your best moves is Spark. For all intents and purposes, yes, it works. But doing all that work, just to set up a Luxray is pretty retarded when you can literally do the exact same set up with something like a Hariyama or even Ursaring. Hell, Ursaring you could do it with, and instead of using a WP, you could use an Eviolite and have a burn at the same time as being far more sturdy with a better move pool. It's still terribly bad to tera psychic for basically any mon that isn't Armarouge looking to do big damage with expanding force, but yeah.
>>53825749>Luxray of all things, a mon with such an infamous terrible TM move pool that one of your best moves is SparkEveryone complains about Zard but Pikachu ruined an entire type
>>53825761How? Electric has always been known to have shitty movepools.Jolteon is still going strong with shadow ball as it’s only good coverage move>pin misslie
>>53825761People complain about Zard because it's overrepresented for absolutely no reason. The logic makes no sense.>people like zard in gen 1 because it's sprite is one of the most detailed ones and it's a dragon that isn't fat like dragonite>gen 2 comes out with barely any good new mons, people still like zard>"oh you like zard? okay lets make a lot of our shit revolve around zard">people like popular things, so they like zard, so TPC makes more zard things>the cycle continuesi personally think zard is mediocre at best and just a lackluster design as a whole. certainly not worthy of the attention it's gotten.
can someone trade me a ditto not from the USA. that has amazing IVs? I have a hisiuan zorua with amazing IVs and timid nature, or a bold happiny with amazing IVs
>>53818476>series full of mediocre video games releases a game so bad and buggy that even the most normal of normalfaggots are making fun of it and hating on it>wonders why no one wants to play a buggy piece of shitIf you want to battle then go to Showdown
>>53816415Would anyone like to help me evolve my Finizen?Is there anything requested in return for the help?
>>53826723Charizard's popularity is organic, I don't know why that makes people seethe.
I am a fan of charizard but I prefer blastoise. venusaur is pretty good to I rotate the starter I pick when I play gen 1 games.
>HOME CANCALLED fuck bros this would have saved us
>>53828404At this point it shouldn't surprise me but goddamn their incompetence is astoundingAny other company doing worse than GF/PC right now?
>>53826263Imagine if Flare Blitz and Wave Crash got distributed to one mon that couldn't even use it properly. Imagine if only Empoleon was allowed to have Wave Crash>>53826723Shut the fuck up, contrarian. That wasn't the point I was making anyway.
>>53826263>Electric has always been known to have shitty movepools.That's not an excuse for 1 mon to completely neuter every other physical attacker of that type.>>53828508To continue this point, remove Liquidation, Aqua Tail, and Aqua Cutter, and Waterfall
>>53827376>feature this pokemon an incredible amount above many other mons>organiczard's popularity is literally the opposite of organic considering how much they've just forced it into every nook and cranny of the franchise. if you want organic you can look at mimikyu who became one of the most popular pokemon after one game, before any anime featured it or any merch had dropped for it.
>>53829548You revealed that you're both young and retarded in one post
>>53829550i am probably older than most of you people here. but i'm glad you didn't even attempt with an actual rebuttal except "u dum" because you're just showing the archetypical zard defense force retarded argumentation.
>>53829569>I'm probably older than most of you people hereThat's even more embarrassing. Especially since you should be old enough to understand that Zard was popular from the very beginningThere's no rebuttal necessary. You're actually retarded
>>53816415I need a grass tera type Iron Moth ASAP, I messed up something on mine
>>53829776Or just a Hondew berry. I just need to lower the spatt by one point.
>>53829782nevermind, I got it on my own lol
Desperately want to finish my Dex, just need a stunky and a stonjourner to finish up. Using code 0319 for the next 10 mins if anyone’s able to help
Anyone down for a best of 3 double battles?
Did they fix the paradox raids?
>>53830347I only do muti
>>53833039What was wrong with them?
>>53834099Small percentage of an drop item being "null" or "none", once that appear in result screen and exit, game crash. I guess "none" was suppose to be TM materials but none of the paradox pokemon have them. They did not learn from last time and didn't even playtest before release.
>want to create a VGC team using a min-speed slither wing>can't breed paradox mons>don't have a jailbroken switch so can't just inject onei have now caught 92 slither wings and none of them has even had below average speed, i am losing my mind
>>53834370>check my slither wings>one of them happens to be 0 speedif you have any pokemon with cool titles (not ones relating to weather / time of day) ill take it in exchangeotherwise you can just have it
>>53834430i actually managed to find one like, 2 minutes before you posted, but thank you for the offer friend.
>>53834473Congrats on the findwhat's that vgc team gonna look like anyway?
>>53834477just a trick room team, using water tera leftovers slither wing as my bulk up/leech life/close combat/will o' wisp or morning sun tank on the field. might replace the final move with first impression to just gung-ho into somebody switching in.it's a bit saddening that most trick room teams kind of end up looking the same but you know, i can try.
Did they fix the raid yet? I've been playing splatoon's SR since it's the special event this weekend.
>>53834792no, it was cancelled as a whole until further notice.
My captcha is playing some OU
Have the shiny odds in raids been boosted or something?
>>53838148you can get shinies in raids?
Does anyone have a spare male own tempo rockruff?I’d like to start the game with one.
>>53838246No. Not yet.
>>53838246Yes. But they're not boosted by the shiny charm, and has no indication even once in the raid that they're shiny since they don't do the shiny bling when in the raid itself. They're absolutely exceedingly rare and the odds of someone finding one, then hosting it are also very rare to the point where more than half of them are just hacked raids.
>>53839863>more than half of them are just hacked raidsAnon asked about Tera Raids, not Max Raids.
>>53838742I could breed one for ya if you give me a bit, just reply when you see this and ill make a room next reply
>>53840006I see this post. I can wait for it.
>>53839863An anon hosted a shiny Vaporeon once. Thankfully I got one. The host was one of those that host pinatas so at least I can trust the guy to not be hacked.
>>53840017365221. Searching now.
>>53840088Ok hopping on right now
>>53840108No problem>>53840052still mad a random ditto raid during that event was a shiny, and the host decided to use Kingambit on it
>>53840127Too bad. I farmed a lot of ditto's back then and give out some 5iv 0 ATK ditto's too. No shinnies mind you.
Bro trying to get a mon comp ready should not be this complex why are IV/EV shit so obtuse i hate this i feel like a retard
>>53840374What dont you get about it. Just make the team sheet on Showdown and just do the math for EVs, use Hordes for getting to 252 and save vitamins and wings for more specific spreads. Use Bottle Caps for IVs since you can buy them now.
IV just get cap bottles. EV you can just buy the respective medicine, they're not limited anymore , if you have the money, which you should since auto tournament is a thing. The only problem would be either changing the Terra type or finding the appropriate stats to level up too.
>>53840374If you dont want to use medicine or feathers, after getting the EV boosting items, and finding a pokemon with the EVs you want, just use PP of the moves you are using to keep track of your progress
>>53840000i'm talking about tera raids, nice quads though
>>53840374in order to get your IVs properly, like, if you want min-speed, or min-attack you should just go to the injection general and ask for a perfect ditto with -attack or -speed because getting an actual ditto with that is so ludicrously hard. or just keep catching dittos until you have one with No good speed/attack and then use caps on the resulting breeding works too but it adds more just running around and getting more resources.i don't understand why we can't just hypertrain something to go down to minimum levels because now we have paradox mons that are just that much more tedious to get the proper desired stats on, if you want something to be minimum stats.
what is a stupidly easy yet fun team I can play in order to learn double battles and overall competitive play
>>53840695here you have the vgc google doc that a lot of people are using. some of them hold pokepastes, other have entire guides written about the thought process of using that team.https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1axlwmzPA49rYkqXh7zHvAtSP-TKbM0ijGYBPRflLSWw/edit#gid=1601611994it's what you're gonna be facing 90% of the time because people are uncreative fuckers who can't build their own teams. one of the main reasons i stopped playing VGC in SV was because i got tired of facing literally the same 3 teams over and over again.
>>53840739Thanks dude I'll check this out
Are the paradonphans going to be 5*? Any reason to hunt for them if I already have both hypertrained and maxed?
>>53841113ease of different tera types primarily.
do tera raids show the pokemon you need for your dex? i have like 50 mons left and theres always a mon i need in the catalog
>>53840739>One of the main reasons i stopped playing VGC in SV was because i got tired of facing literally the same 3 teams over and over again.yeah, its sadThe only reason i still play is because i enjoy bullying meta slaves with off meta teams
>>53842227Please give me some anti meta recs
>>53842227There is considerable diversity in this meta, it is just easier to hide behind no team sheet dozo on ladder.
>>53842380honestly, you'll get smoked in master ball using a gimmick team 9/10 times so youve still gotta have a meta core if you wanna win, but you can throw some off meta mons in it.Bronzong / ting-lu is funOrthworm / EQ mon / Dnite is a tooPerish song flutter mane + gothitelle catches a lot of people off guard. glimora mortal spin + physical merciless toxapex actually picks up kills and definitely surprises opponents. i forgot to send this post earlier>>53842837that is true, but i like the feeling of cart more than showdown.
>>53842848I hear you about cart vs. showdown. I most prefer best of three sets. I actually don't play on showdown, which may be to my detriment. However with the return of local events my buddy and I have been practicing team building and attempting to attend. Plus forums like this and discords can be used to coordinate comparable experiences. I have been seeking out best of three team sheet practices and I recommend the same to others.
>>53842938Is this luke? We battled last time. I’m trying to train up a new team for next month. Will let you know when it’s ready.
>>53842938>I most prefer best of three sets.if ladder was bo3 i would never stop playing that shit.i still dont know how i feel about open team sheets. i feel like its harder than just normal games.should give it a go though.
>>53842966This is Luke and I finally think I've come to a team I am truly beginning to enjoy. It's a variant of my aurora veil team you beat. So absolutely, I'll look forward to battling.>>53842977I do agree, I feel open team sheet is harder. It put's a greater burden on the actual team building which again forces a centralization of the meta. I think sheet is kinda necessary for a game with teras, but if they cut teras next gen there is no guarantee team sheet sticks around. But tera is popular so it may have a longer life. Anyways it's more downloading play style than teams the way it used to be. But it is still a great game.
>>53843021>I think sheet is kinda necessary for a game with teras,i don't feel the same wayeach mon has like 2-3 teras tops that they actually get use out of, with the only exception probably being dondozoits basically just guessing another move imoi hope teras stay though, theyre a great mechanic
Anyone want to trade apricorn balltism. LF: a moon teddy in prep for Home
>>53843111home is cancelled bro
>>53818750Get a screen magnifier
Where's Marioipod's friend code? Did she post here? I want to trade her a shiny Eevee I caught so she goes to my strip club with me.
>>53843111Sure, what do you have?
lf spriatito ft quaxly
>>53844702Im at work right now but i have a ton of apricorn mons. Mainly paldean and starters in multiple kinds
>>53845137bumping on this is mainly for the dex. i also have crocalor
>>53843039>each mon has like 2-3 teras topsI mean, with how wide the TM pool is for a lot of mons, you can pull out a lot of really unexpected shit with a lot of mons. Like yesterday I got hit by a fucking tera rock Fluttermane that proceeded to skullfuck my team with power gem and there's no way I could've predicted it because I've never even heard of a single person use tera rock for fucking anything that isn't like, hard stone garganacl.
>>53845746That's true of move sets and EV spreads, too. Even items. When I used to do singles, it was an occasional random occurrence that even a significantly lesser player might pull off a win with a random late-game sash, for example. Or a specs Salamence lead that OHKOs your physically defensive switch-in. I do see your point, and there was discussion of this when the very first team preview debuted--as in, was this a necessity with the sheer number of Pokemon to maximize skill over mere surprise? The most convincing argument for me is that, in the IRL tournament events, especially at the high end, "open sheet" is already a thing due to spying and info-sharing among friend networks and national "teams." So OTS levels the playing field for loners like me or players new to the scene.

Retard here Can you use Charizard in ranked yet?
Does Let’s Go raise EV?
>>53847118Lets go uses those candies for trashing pokemon you caught like in Pokemon GO. I think they took Evs and IVs out
>>53847118Serebii says you don't earn EVs, I'll assume it is correct
anyone want to do a set of double battles?
I'm sadden that HOME was suppose to drop tonight and it's no longer the case. Would've been nice.
>>53847233Ok so now I just need to touch tradeDrifloonDriblim StonjounerBrute bonnetSlither wingSandy shocksTing LuA couple of them I was able to find via hours of surprise trading. I can give you an ability patch for helping me please.
>>53848311i like that a pokemon youtuber said "they would've released home but now they slashed our dreams" like HOME was that important to him when he's a grown-ass man
When HOME drops will any anon help me out with a galar slowpoke? He’s my favourite but I never got the game
>>53849405Poketubers in a nutshell. That's why I told you to stay away from them. They are more toxic than /vp/. I bet most of our worst resident shitposters and shills are secretly poketubers too.
>>53849510I never really found /vp/ that toxic honestly. There are definitely some retards but it’s the best place to find honesty and a fun community regarding Pokémon and it’s drawbacks I know we’re all mindless Nintendo consoomers, but something about the community of adults on other sites really rubs me the wrong way
>>53847573I am up for a set of VGC 2023 Series C this evening around 7 central time.
>>53849508Sure, see you in five months.Eight if you are not in Japan.
Would anybody be willing to trade a Jumbo Mark Sandile/Krokorok/Krookodile?I can offer a shiny Clawitzer in return, though we can negotiate if you’d prefer sometime else.
Anyone have a Foreign non-JPN fuecoco they’re willing to trade? I’m desperate.
>>53851114Why non-JPN?You some kind of racist?
>>53851143I’m trying to masuda method. Don’t you need both parents to be foreign?
>>53851159No, that would be stupid.Parents need to be foreign to each other, that's all.
I am trying to complete a living pokedex at the moment I'm just missing Zeraora and Diancie if anybody is willing to trade.
>>53851215This. If you already have your hands on a species (an offspring of your own language for example) then you just need a foreign compatible species. People tend to ask for japanese species because they want to combo their own English species with JPs because it is common to get those from Wonder Trades or GTS as many kids in Japan play the games but any foreign language species will do the trick
>>53851330I have lots of Diancie from unredeemed Gen VI and VII wondercards.Do you have a spare Zarude?
>>53851363Only one Zarude and its from Pokemon GO.
>>53851363>>53851330If you are not anal about it and have SWSH both of you can request those mythicals from a sysbot at Discord or Twitch
When's the next raid?
>>53852581No announcements made
>>53852728What the fuck
>>53852847Shocking, I know
Need these mons for the Dex, Touch trade is fineDrifloonDriblim StonjounerBrute bonnetSlither wingSandy shocksIm offering ability patches and master balls to whoever can help me with this.
>>53853452I only needDrifloonDriblim StonjounerFor touch trade now.
>>53853721Bumping on this. Been at it for a week now.
>>53851466I would rather not in case they decide to start being strict about hacked pokemon all of sudden.
Anybody have a spare Rowlet, Sobble, and Cyndaquil? I missed those raids.
>>53854275>GF>being thorough in their hack checks
>>53854686Maybe not through but they are mythical pokemons with limited releases that they can easily check
>>53854203Never mind this. I just used a trade bot for the last three
Had to make a new account on 3DS so now I have fuck all friends for XY friend safariwill appreciate if someone could add my sorry ass so I can look for shiny pokemon1908-5225-1738

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, RELEASE DELPHOX RAID ALREADY. I'M TIRED OF FUCKING WAITING 2 WEEKS OF NOTHING
Any of you nerds have a image/doc/whatever the fuck for Balltism combinations?
>>53857013there's some in the archives but they only reach up to Gen 6 or 7 only iirc, a Gen 8 and 9 sheet needs to be done
>>53857030I had an old one up go Gen 8 but not one for gen 9.
>>53856661Remember that whoever you friend needs to have beaten league and be online to unlock the third slot.>>53857013If you have to ask, you don't understand.Premier is the premier choice for everything.
>finished all of legends arceus to be prepared for home>home is delayed indefinitely
>>53857013Google serebii pokeball details
>>53857172You have BDSP? You could shiny hunt Arceus in the meantime
Hopefully now with HOME coming next week, these thread can be active again
>>53858654Sorry but it seems like others are not as enthusiastic as I and you are anon. I am most excited for the viability of trick room to return, however it has been fun playing good old fashion speed tiers.
>>53859028i mean home isn't going to mean they are going to be playable online outside of casual matches until in a few regulations
>>53816415Umm… did they figure out how to RNG your way for SV shiny raid?I heard some anons from other threads claiming that it’s the case now
>>53860097iirc you'd need to use a tool that checks all dens and then it refreshes if no shiny, it keeps going until a shiny hits
>hunting shiny magikarp>get shiny marill insteadOk
Tips on how to build Raichu? I love this little fucker but i feel like i dont know how to properly build it
>>53862524that's the funny thing, you don't. the only good thing about it is the fact that it gets access to fake out
>>53862524Step 1: Travel back in time and prevent it's prevo from becoming the face of the franchise
>>53862524I used to use this moveset back in ORAS TimidThunderbolt Fake outProtect EncoreAbility: Lighting Rod252 spAtk 252 spe 4 hpI mainly used it as a shield back in ORAS for Kyogre/Gyarados I assume this is for online play, so this pokemon is pretty powercrepped nowadays It's okay for battle facilities through
oh man this raid system is so much better and the music is great. cant wait for home on the 30th. also this game has a surprisingly cool story even if half the characters look goofier than hell.
Would anyone like to join a discord server? There’s a trade finder and battle finder page
>>53862845Honestly, I think it fits pretty nicely into the current meta and is very much over looked. With Mattie Morgan winning a regional with pelliper driven palla balance I imagine it could be worked well into a palafin/pelliper team. Series two I got beat down on ladder with raichu weavile back beating me with speed, fake outs, and raichu encore. I like your set, in theory in rain thunderbolt could be thunder. But it's good.I miss good old fashioned singles nasty plot, before everything got it, thunderbolt, hidden power ice, focus blast with lighting rod. With bait it was a powerful win con, high risk, high reward
this crater is some real made in abyss type shit i like it. music reminds me of Nier. anyways does trading work like it used to?
>>53863253There is no GTS in-game, your trade options are:Wonder Trade: you pick something and trade it for someone's pick AKA a random blind tradeLink Trade: you create a code (or input someone else's) to trade directly with someone elseOnce HOME arrives you may send them there and trade them with the app mobile version which is where GTS now lives
>>53863695What I meant with the last thing is if you have a particular request or want more control with your trades then wait next week when HOME is updated
>>53863709okay thanksglad its finally going to be up
>>53863695I have the switch version of Home but I dont see anything about GTS. Is it exclusive to the phone?
is gholdengo immune to heal pulse and pollen puff from teammates?
>>53864137Heal pulse, pollen puff is not considered status, it is an attack. Kinda weird, I know
>>53864232Pollen Puff I understand since it does damage. Heal Pulse idk
Is there no way to breed down Vivilion forms or is the only way in SV to get shiny Vivilion forms is to just catch them?
>>53863975Yes, you deposit from your save file's boxes to HOME's on the Switch version then you use the mobile app to perform the trades there. One thing to note is that trade evos won't trigger when trading through HOME, you still need to perform those in-game with another player
>>53864657No breeding down, that's correct, all eggs from Vivillon's line created in Paldea will turn Fancy pattern no matter what. If you want shinies from other patterns you need to catch them after changing patterns by sending GO's postcards
>>53864735Damn all right, ty. Do you know how easy it is to just spot shiny Vivilions? I know what they look at but not in the field.
>Chien-Pao used Sucker Punch!>Tsareena's Queenly Majesty>Chien-Pao used Ice Shard!>Tsareena's Queenly Majesty>Dragonite used Extreme Speed!>Tsareena's Queenly Majesty>all in the same battleLiterally how can someone be this bad holy shit
>>53864913was this on showdown or cart?
>>53864758Relatively easy I'd say? Shiny Vivi's bodies are all white. Once you spot the full white head you know you got your target
>>53864941Ranked battles on cart. This isn't even the first time; I've had people still try to priority spam multiple times against bruxish and when I set up psychic terrain. If it doesn't work the first two times, you'd think they would get a clue.
anyone have shiny event zacian/zamazenta/eternatus they don’t want/need? missed them when they ran
>trying to figure out how to use wo-chienmy brain fucking hurts, why is this fucking based slug so bad at everything
>>53865275Hit Fissure then hit Stomping Tantrum?
>>53865407you're thinking of ting-lu. i'm talking about wo-chien.
>>53865275>@Leftovers>Leech Seed>Knock Off>Pick two: Giga Drain / Ruination / Substitute / Protect>Either max physical bulk or max special bulkThere. Its job is to be annoying. It is easily the worst of the ruinous quartet so don't be too disappointed if it doesn't reach the level of usefulness that the others are capable of.
>>53865275It's funny how when something is natively grass and it's name isn't Amoonguss or Breloom, it's pretty much into the bin immediately. Tera Grass is great because your moveset isn't based on grass, but if you're grass you're stuck with the grass move pool which is just generally fucking dogshit.
>>53865620I find that odd as well, tera grass in this meta game is a good defense tera but if have that typing it’s almost always unusable unless you have use spore.
>>53865275Try a Wo-Chien, Chi-yu, Gyrados, flutter mane core
>>53866141It's kind of sad how you're almost forced to run a certain set of mons together and basically just swap out one or two to fit whatever niche you want to do because the most common core mons right now are just so much better than the alternatives that you can't really sub anything out for them either.
>>53866190Yes, between Tera, paradox mon, the ruin quartet, and a lack of dex diversity due to lack of home connectivity there is a very specific type of power creep. But it is a game with a meta, whatever the dex is, and I'd rather enjoy figuring out how to win in whichever meta.Like if anons wanted to battle under other stipulations and have fun diverse battles all they have to do is post requesting it here, and I'm sure me and like maybe 2 othe people would follow up.Speaking of, multi battles when?And here is my team I'm bringing to my local in Chicago today. I'm hoping the team proves strong enough to feel good bringing it to the Milwaukee regional next week, or I'm going to have to figure out something quick.
Hi, just got myself the game and had been playing since. Nearly finished the game, only left is to challenge the League. So, can I have a 31IV’s for all stats with Destiny Knot for breeding? I hope a gracious anon would share their spare Dittos.
>>53866257why both bulldoze and tantrum, tantrum seems a bit pointless if you're not gonna have something to trigger it like fissure
I always thought pokemon were predetermined from once their egg is layed. I bred for like 40 eggs on a sandwhich for egg lvl2, title lvl2 and huge power lvl2, spent the entire half hour just laying the eggs and made a great peanut butter sandwhich to hatch them, yet none seem to have titles. Did I fuck up and needed to proct that title/size power for when they hatch?
>>53867467eggs are not affected by any other sandwich modifier but egg level
>tfw my eviolite ursaring is putting in fucking work on the vgc ladderhaving a base 130 attack and self-applying burn with arcanine or sableye is silly when you can also get good defense/health with the eviolite as well.
>>53867522Oh, so size, title, and shiny powers only affect wild encounters? I just wasted a bunch of time then
>>53867580yep. sorry to lay that burden on you, but now you know.
>>53867565I remember deciding against that because taking the turn to self proct is too risky imo
>>53867583Well shucks. Appreciate the info
>>53867585Is Ursaluna in the game yet?
>>53867606Nope, it'll be out when it's out. And we like that... "it'll be out when it's out"... great work ethic.
i kind of regret getting scarlet because now im going to have to trade for iron pokemon and i really really want iron hands
>>53867776if you wanna finish the dex you're gonna have to trade anyways, and the specific scarlet-violet trade codes are still very active i believe
>>53867863>scarlet-violet trade codeswhat is this?
>>53867565How does eviolite ursaring work if ursaluna isnt the game yet?
never mind i figured it out
>>53867876ursaluna is in the code for the game, but is just not enabled. same thing with why stantler has become a pretty good staple trick room setter because with eviolite the deer is a fucking tank
trade isn't working; only found two people one that was trying to trade the wrong thing and another that was trading the same thing i was
>>53868131then you keep trying
dear god it finally worked. i kept getting the same poor asshole even after waiting 20 minutes in between but finally got someone different.
>>53867865Common codes people made up for trading, for example 00010004 is for people looking to trade Sprigatito for a Fuecoco. In this example you can put Sprig for trade but you may end up hitting others putting Sprigs up for trade like you but eventually someone will put their Fuecoco for trade and the trade will go through first try. Codes are based on Natdex number, just put your Paradox's number and Iron Hand's number like in the example and someone will eventually accept. Or you can wait until next week and trade from HOME
>>53868456okay btw sandwhich power is not working. made it three times, it said it was the right sandwich, but encounter rate is worse or about the same. has this happened to anyone else and is there a fix?
>>53868456> Codes are based on Natdex numberYou mean Regional Dex - there has been no National Dex since Gen VII.
>>53868499Sorry, you are correct yeah
>>53868494Depends on what you are looking for
>>53868657fighting encounter for ev training but the flamigos basically disappearedi moved to the lake and that helped since they're all over there but i wanted originally lower level prey
>>53866877A lot of redirection prevents ting lu from being able to target some of it's prime targets that give this team trouble like chi-yu and glimmora, this lu will 2 hko chi yu or glimmora with bulldoze. As well as it lowers speed tiers and often brings things under dragonite's rocks lines.I went 2-3. I think blizzard on bundle may make my team better and is my next technical adjustment.
>>53868987* speed stage*rock slide
So i just booted up Pokemon Bank recently since 3ds shutdown and it says I have ?80 days left. What is the ? For and what happens after 80 days?
>>53869437? usually indicated over 999, pass per amount. People assumed it means 1000 days, so 1080 days (around barely 3 years). Once countdown ends, I assumed you can no longer use Bank anymore, all they did is extended "free trial" to the max amount of days.
>>53866257>>53868987>speed control>on the by far slowest mon on the team that benefits far more from having earthquake with +40 BP on bulldoze with it's monstrous attack and bulk>meanwhile life orb flutter for some reason has substitute instead of something like icy wind that can ACTUALLY help with speed control when it doesn't even have anything to actually help it out from behind a sub>encore on a booster energy bundle that's designed to be all-out offense next to abomasnow>protect on abomasnow instead of something like icy wind where it can still help control speed even if leaf storm has dragged it's SpA down, assuming it's a bulky abomasnow due to light clay + aurora veilit's like you did a mishmash of teams without a cohesive thought of how it would function together
>>53869437Ignore it while it says ?, they will do a offical announcement when it reaches end of service.If I had to guess it'll be safe until the switch is discontinued. After that it'll be harder for them to convince the higher ups to keep the service going unless they find a way to make it a premium feature.
>>53868732why would you go for flamigo instead of just shinx or taurosalso if a single ingredient from your sandwich falls off, the recipe changes so you need to make sure everything stays on. even if it falls off when you put the top bun on (which is why most people tend to ignore the top bun and shove it off-screen to avoid that from happening)
>>53867776Union circle for it?
>>53868987Unless you have a specific reason to use bulldoze, like to set up a Bellibolt or something you should really avoid using it. It's low base power is horrid, especially when you already have multiple mons that can already learn icy wind as >>53870839 said.
>>53870839Slow speed control procs defiant slower which breaks a lot of king gambit and annhilape and allows for my d-nite to beat them after a bulldoze, especially tera fire. And like I said the speed control is a tertiary benefit, it is designed to break glimorra and chi yu, however that doesn't mean you're wrong that eq may be beneficial. I had experimented with eq first and felt the damage difference wasn't there for my team (This ting lu has little attack investment). Yes I know I have options for icy wind, but I don't think I want to try slotting it on flutter for this team, the sub is often far more valuable than you can imagine. I think that my team can benefit from possible speed control on bundle, it could buy flutter subs or attacks as well as moving things under arcanine and dragonite's speed tier. However I am going to try blizzard bundle and see if that additional offense doesn't provide me more favorable match ups. While encore isn't as directly beneficial as I imagined, I was hoping to use it to success pinning opponents to freely veil or sub, it is still a powerful tech.Also, this is not an amalgamation of anyone's team, as I've expiremented with this team for a month it has been constantly drawn and redrawn by me, yes I have been watching the meta, so I have influences, but this is all my attempt at balance. It may not appear to you to be your style and it may not be as good as I imagine, but it is purposeful and built with intention.
>>53870839Initially the 4th slot on bundle was aurora veil and we'll see if blizzard is impressing me I may end up back.
>>53871612How many battles have you won on ladder or itt with it?
Can someone touch trade me a Miraidon? It's the last one I need for the shiny charm
>>53871703It got me to master ball. I'll post my win loss when I get my switch later, but there is a big ole 5 game loosing streak that tainted my record, I was experimenting with a sun team. I was at like 1000, and bounced down to 4000, I'm like 2500-2000 now.
>>53871703Also I've gone 3-2 and 2-3 twice at a tournaments with it.
>>53871612>(This ting lu has little attack investment)that's literally where having more BP is far more important, having high attack investment doesn't really matter if it's gonna be something like 120% or 160% damage to something, but at low attack investment it's 20% - 30% difference of damage to a kingambit without risking giving kingambit a fucking defiance boost. "control procs defiant" isn't exactly a thing when it has access to a priority move and/or fire ape. you never want to intentionally proc defiant unless you have some mirror herb shit going on, giving two of the most premiere sweepers a +2 damage boost for a measly -1 speed when they are tanky motherfuckers is never a benefit which is why it's far more beneficial to use earthquake. you have so many venues to slot in icy wind that it makes little sense why you wouldn't, if you really want speed control.
/wfg/ - HOME how’s it going
>>53872102I started using the home gts for the first time and its fucking miserable. Everybody wants 2 things, level 100 pharaoh furfrou and enamorous. I just want safari goomy and petilil and nobody wants johto balls on gts anymore
>>53872543Hopefully next week shakes things up, many requests will turn into Miraidon or Koraidon as the chase choice
>>53872820Oh god youre right, its only going to get worse
>>53872035I understand, what I'm saying is with out overtly changing my ting lu set with the bulk investment I've made earthquake doesn't pick up ohkos on targets like king gambit, chi-yu, or glimmora, where as 2 bulldozes, bulldoze stomping tantrum, or 2 stomping tantrums do. Plus the ability to have 100% accurate speed control on all grounded mons is nice in it's own manner too. I am considering looking at my ting lu set to make it less bulky and more offensive, and may try it, however, the defensive capabilities of my ting lu set may baffle you. I know that alone doesn't win me games, but it's sheer bulk along side intimidate and aurora veil gives me many chances to overcome adversity.Also king gambits don't really like facing my dragonite even with priority. So I understand your point, however I do not believe you see how I designed my team. Again, I will state it may not be the best team, but I'm happy to have an open team sheet best of 3 vgc series c battle with you sometime this week. I could use the practice.
Anyone have Rellor with cosmic power?
>>53873066How could anyone before home?
Playing Scarlet. I just bred some female Adamant nature Azurills with Aqua Jet. Regular Pokeballs. IVs are probably shit, honestly. I'll take any breejects with decent natures.
>>53872885>I do not believe you see how I designed my teamMaybe if you weren't so dogshit at trying to explain the logic behind your team, people wouldn't be confused. But using phrases like>earthquake doesn't pick up ohkos on targets like king gambit, chi-yu, or glimmora, where as 2 bulldozes, bulldoze stomping tantrum, or 2 stomping tantrums docertainly is not helping you.
Is there even a point to breeding outside of MM and some edge cases like going for 0IVs?You can adjust pretty much everything after the fact.
>>53873525So you won't battle? I get you've stated my expressions are not that clear to you.
>>53873805Nope, you nailed it. Only preference after those reasons.
Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.
Is there a site or something that people use for OU cart matches? I don't care about Showdown and want to play in-game.
>>53874511what format do you want to play?
>>53873525Being that rude is not necessary anon.I battled Luke twice and both times he put my team on the ropes even though I won. He is an experienced player and like he said he’s still building his team.That being said, Luke, My team is almost ready. Should be ready by the end of the week I just need to collect the tera shards.
>>53874754Sounds good dude, I look forward to it. I sincerely need some practice this week so thanks.
>tfw my favorite mons probably won't make it into the DLCsi just wanna make a cool team around chlorophyll leavanny, man
So, which Pokémon are coming back tomorrow with the Home update?
is my boy toxapex any good this gen?i also just solo'd a 5 star raid for the first time. feels good. online players are garbage.i can't wait for the technical issues that are sure to come from HOME.
>>53876613>is my boy toxapex any good this gen?Not really, since Scald isn't a thing anymore. It can do stuff, sure. But it's a shadow of it's former self.
anyone want to do vgc battles on cart?
>>53876619It's still good in ou, it has just changed it's role. It's ran modest assault vest with infestation, surf, sludge bomb, acid spray/ice beam.
>>53876653I would like to. Are you up for open team sheet best of 3? I'll get my team sheet together shortly.When are you available to battles that set?
>>53876742Here is my sheet
>>53876742>>53876808sorry for the late reply, im available anytime todayhere is mine
>>53876832You are fine, no rush. I'm available whenever you are.
>>53876859sick, host whenever
>>53876866Gimme 5 minutes, I'll be online and I'll post a code to search for.
>>53876724okay, standing by
>>53876724>singleswhy would you care about a pretend format
>>53876891Cool, let's search 14922941
>>53876900nicewhat song do you usually pick?
>>53876910Ruinous Quartet, hbu?Also glhf
>>53876918Gg anon, nice taste in music
>>53876965Gg, game 3!
>>53876898If it's a prenetend format, why are the only games heavily featuring the "official" one from the GameCube?
>>53876918Good set dude, I felt like that was not easy for either of us. I had felt perish trap is very challenging to play in series c, but you did a good job dude. Thanks for the practice.
>>53876965>>53877013GGs!Snow is so good now, wowthat flutter mane protect against my double shadow ball made me die inside. i thought that was an easy substitute from your end for sure
>>53877077Thanks, I realized in hindsight I needed to sub as you set trickroom in the end of g3 as my flutter was unthreatened. However I was luckily able to preserve it through trickroom for that gholdengo pin to win. Thanks dude
>>53877077Also, aside from checked^That self roaring arcanine is an awesome tech.
>>53877076perish trap isn't easy to play, but thats why i use it the dopamine rush when successfully trapping a fluttermane/chi-yu or chien-pao/dnite cores is insane>>53877099Roar arcanine catches everyone off guard LMAO, but im still not sure on whether roar calls randomly, or the next mon on your list. ive been lucky so far with gothitelle calls though.we'll definitely have to play again sometime. i'm still not too sure about wo-chien's spot on the team but idk what else to use that isnt a sitting duck.
>>53877121I do not know how roar calls the next mon I will have to look into that, good question. Also it just seems like a good tech if you run into a trap mirror. I definitely look forward to playing again.Irregardless to Wo-Chein, I don't know much about it as I haven't really played it. I think assault vest would chien is awesome however I don't know if it's the safest call for your team. I didn't necessarily have an answer for it directly, it's a hell of a monster. I like the idea od a redirection Wo-chien but nobody seems to utilize it like I imagine. Obviously stall seed and av are actually way better than most give credit (largely cuz it just has so many tough match ups this meta), but I feel like protect, rage powder, giga drain, snarl has serious potential for wo chein sets, but I haven't done calcs and I don't really know. I bet redirection is nice on your team, but as an av ruin user myself I think I have an idea of some of the bulk you may be conceding to accomplish that.
>>53877163I looked into it, but nothing gave me a definitive answer. it says "Random" but that could just be fluff. no answers from autists that dig into the gameI had not even considered redirection on wo-chien, it would have definitely made some matchups in the past easier.
>>53877202Well thanks for looking into the answer. It does feel like so much poke info is buried or mudled under conflicting claims on line. If I find something I'll share it. And yeah, I really feel wo chein is under explored but home may provide it more opportunities to shine. Again ggs dude, see you for more battles in the future.
>>53877241definitely GGsI'll have to face you again sometime in the future
won my first six star raid yayalthough it was a varoom
>>53877036because doubles is quadruply more complex than singles and the games are still primarily made for kids. the official competitive format has been doubles since 2008. given that you're in the WIFI general implies you're playing doubles, hence why the assumption was originally that you were talking about how toxapex was good or not in doubles
