Ok, so this isn't a video, but it is showdown related, and I don't feel like making a new thread. About two months ago, I took up showdown so I could actually play Inverse battles against other people. The format seemed fun. Little did I know just how good I would become...

No, you aren't seeing things. That's me, 4th in the world for the format. The exact ranking has fluctuated since, but I'm still 4th for now. My team's MVP is a Counter Blissey. Half the time they just forfeit when it works.

I am surprised he didn't spam sucker punch in the end, not like taking a quick attack fail would of KO'd that turn and SD would need to boost to +5 to KO at 50%, but using SP first to force a bluff on the next turn would of been a better choice IMO.

Battle just to keep post on topic, Tickle Alomomola being a pain in the arse.

I saw a vid of someone sweeping using a Shedinja, and I kind wanted to try it out. Unfortuently cause of one Blazekein, it had to be play tested in Ubers. I was also surprised by Noivern's Usefulness on this team.

That one battle where everything goes right. Also switched out Gengar for M.Aggron.

Still like this Vileplume set, Infestation is very underrated.

I had to pull hax, but this turnaround was hilarious.

Since half my preferred mons are RU tier or lower I decided to try playing in the tier for fun.

Loved their reason to ragequit.

I watched the first Video, and I have to say, his reason made me laugh, plus that was quite the match. Good job on predicting as well.


EDIT: To stay on Topic here's Battle Vid of mine!

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ubers-138665031

Ive been looking to replace my Swampert. For some reason I stumbled onto Pangoro. He has a Move set that's quite big and I think he kinda meshes well with the team. Having a Second Pokemon that can force switches and that can trap certain threats to this team. The set im currently testing is:

Pangoro @ Assault Vest
Ability: Mold Breaker
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpA
Naughty Nature
- Infestation
- Circle Throw
- Shadow Claw
- Poison Jab

Not sure about having him running an offensive spread or Infestation, seems in Ubers he'll need all the defense investment he can get with or without the AV. Infestation is only good if you have method of healing yourself or defense like shuckle. I'd try

Pangoro @ Assault Vest
Ability: Mold Breaker/Scrappy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 S.def
Impish Nature
- Foul Play
- Circle Throw
- Eathquake/Body Slam
- Infestation

Or without the AV

Pangoro @ Leftovers/Chesto
Ability: Scrappy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 S.Def or 252 S.def / 4.def
Impish Nature
- Parting Shot/Foul Play
- Circle Throw
- Sleep Talk/Infestation
- Rest

The latter might be better for your team, since Parting shot can help open your Blaziken to Sub up.

On Topic, threw myself on VCG14 (usually play XY spot.) Just scrapped the win.

Interesting Gravity team.

To be one hundred percent honest, This really isn't an Ubers team. This is pretty much a team I plan on making In-Game for WiFi battles.

Im am liking the movesets you put up though. Ill have to look into them more, thanks for the advice!

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ubers-139351263

Didnt win, but a good battle non the less.

Trying out one of the sets Mason gave me. Worked out rather well.

I also swapped out Shadow Sneak for Will-o-wisp. Shadow Sneak really doesnt do anything when my Idea is to Pass Speed Boosts to it. Figured Will-O-Wisp might be an interesting help/ maybe a little unexpected?

Good battle, was surprised to see the ladder rank of this person after battle, was in the top 10. Team is working out pretty well :)

Good rain battle.

Full on Shedinja Sweep, WITHOUT A SPEED BOOST. I dont think the person I was battling against was very experianced, or understood Shedinja's Ability.

I found a team on Smogon that I wanted to try out. These are my second and third runs with it:

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ou-142452666
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ou-142453264

The first guy, TheM4ster, disconnected, so for whatever reason, I decided to start another match while the timer ran down during his match. He came back at the last moment, however, so both of these matches were simultaneous...which probably wasn't advisable, as not only is this team more offensively oriented than I'm used to (I tend to prefer Bulky Offense, or even Stall occasionally) but it was also built around Raikou, a pokemon that I've never used before...although, it has Dragonite, Assault Vest Azumarill, and Skarmory on it, so I guess it could count as bulky.

I like it.

Edit:

I thought I'd show this, not because of the match, but because I just battled possibly the most pessimistic person I've met on Showdown. Seriously, he wanted Smogon to ban moves that caused the Freeze condition, because he was "frozen thirty percent of the time, rather than ten percent".

@Kiga-That guy must have had some horrible luck with Freeze.

http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ubers-143285929

This is why my Aggron runs Dragon tail. Im also thinking about taking out Rest and Sleep talk. effective yes...But There is litterally only one move Aggron can use with Sleep talk. Yes one is better than none, but still, Im having second thoughts, mainly cause Aggron has to switch out of Fairy Pokemon.

@Kiga I hate that's guy's logic, nice team though.


@Gofd You may want to try Rest/SR/DT/STAB with a cleric in tow to remove rest's sleep, Vaporeon is the first to come to mind as it can resist fire, heal bell, roar and either add scald burns or wish support.

Still playing doubles, Vs Trick room team.

My team cant really run a cleric or else the synergy that I (think I) have will go down in flames. Ive also tried running a Cleric with M.Aggron before and well....It didnt really work all that well.

And a battle Vid to stay on topic:

Total Gardevoir Sweep. Some of his choices were questionable, although I assume he had a strategy, but there was an almost solid domino effect at the end. She's fragile, but not as fragile as a lot of people make her out to be.

Sleepy sleepy...

I totally forgot about Volt Absorb...
