I would like to ask am i allowed to use explosion on my opponent's last pokemon while i still have some that are still surviving? My life orb sweeper always get defeated by the last poke and sometimes it causes the game to become dragging.
I tried asking this in smogon and the answer is yes...
Need help on this question as it would affect what i would breed for next project. (Semi urgent)
Will i get to activate a pinch berry again if i recycled it and survived the last attack? like i was hiding behind substitute or opponent attack missed/switched out. Or maybe when his attack couldnt...
I can't think of any moveset that makes use of the wish. How about toxic stalling or baton passing curse? You might have to breed again another eevee for curse though. (Smeargle seem to be only parent that can teach both)
Are you going to use it in a NFE game?

Hi, at the end I choosed to let my Abomasnow to have the following moveset to the its job for stalling.
I plan on giving it a Calm nature and i need advise for the EV spread and also maybe how to put the PP ups on it.
Hmm, but i have thought of reflect before but without blizzard i would leave myself open to taunts and reflect will wear off over time. more importantly, swagger could not really coexist with reflect because it is risky when i switch to others since i can't baton pass. Furthermore, swagger boost...
Hi, i am thinking of giving Abomasnow a stalling movesets. I have come out with 2 builds and i would like to have some recommendations.
I got this from smogon and this is a standard build. The leech seed could benefit most of my pokes...
I would like to ask some questions about absol.
1) How do the super luck ability function? In serebii and bulbapedia it was mentioned as doubles the critical modifier (i.e +1->+2, +2->+4). But in smogon it was described as increasing the crititcal rate by 1 stage.
2)If i were to use...
