If this would be better suited to the General Mega Evolution thread then please move it, but it seemed like a simple enough question:
Mega Steelix set?
I know it looks like basically an inferior, sand-dependent Mega Aggron, but surely there's something workable?
I guess I forgot about Magikarp's secret Normal typing. :drowsy:
In all seriousness: Sheer Force, 100 Attack, 95 Defense, 110 Speed... obviously he isn't the cream of the crop, but there's really no way to work with that?
Hey there! Master Mew here with another annoying installment of "Is this terrible Pokemon usable in OU?"
This week's edition: Tauros
He was the king of the metagame back in RBY, before the rug was pulled out from under him when exactly 100% of the mechanics he benefited from were dramatically...
Yeah, that's a fair point. I have a habit of forgetting about Confusion/Foul Play in the context of breeding. :-p
I'll just pick an Eeveelution I like, then, and they can be my in-game team mascots. :XD:
By the way, is "Mixed Sweeper Flareon" a real thing? I've never heard of it before.
As unexpected leftovers from other breeding projects, I've found myself the proud owner of two 6IV Eevees - one Timid, the other Bold.
Do any of the Eeveelutions actually stand to benefit from having six perfect IVs? Or is a 6IV Eevee effectively the same as a 5IV?
Mandibuzz is seriously one of the most frustrating (and surprisingly so) pokemon around right now. This thing is seriously hard to kill and I didn't believe it until I faced one for the first time. Try her out, she's freaking amazing. That is all. :-p
(On a slightly more serious note, yes...
Haha yeah, I mix them up sometimes.
Yeah, it's somewhat gimmicky but I had it in my head that Sticky Web + Gravity would be one of the best possible setup combos if it could be pulled off reliably (a big if).
So... Landorus, Jirachi, Meloetta or Mew?
In that case I'd probably opt for...
Anything with a higher Speed base stat and access to priority (though the list is short). Alternatively, Extreme Speed will always outspeed Talonflame and Dragonite is a relatively easy pokemon to work into most teams who learns it.
Low speed, vulnerable defensive typing, mediocre defensive stats, and susceptibility to literally all forms of entry hazards make Magmortar difficult to use.
He does have pretty great Special Attack, though, and his movepool includes Fire Blast, Focus Blast and Thunderbolt for pretty ok...
Hm... well, I'd probably go with Spore + King's Shield and drop Taunt, since Spore will prevent them from setting up as well and will likely prompt a switch. Dual hazards are great if you can set them up but I'm not sure Smeargle will be pulling it off very often, even with the Sash. You can set...
Would something like Galvantula Sticky Web turn 1, U-Turn to Sableye turn 2, Gravity turn 3 be worthwhile? Spinblocks and knocks birds into Sticky Web and my Ground type Sweeper is thrilled.
It feels gimmicky, though, so wondered if it was obviously flawed. xD
