    From what I know of his prior use he can take an Outrage from Garchomp and take one out with his Ice Beam. Should be decent for the semi-competitive stuff I do at school. Thought?
    Was it a Yache Berry Garchomp? That berry is really what gave 'chomp its legendary bulk...

    Lots o progress since the last time I updated. Retired Bullet and Snozey (neither are dead). Had a Farfetch'd named Sir Leeks that died. Thanks to my overcaution when trying to catch pokemon box 1 is almost 2/3rds full. I'm all the way up to the 8th gym now with a woefully underleveled team from trying to distribute exp evenly and I am not looking forward to the grind. Any particular recommendations? I'm thinking level Jaws and Fluffy for the gym fight. Jaws can deal with most of the dragons with Ice Fang and for those that aren't weak to it I'll have Fluffy come in and start zapping.

    Lvl 35 Fluffy the Ampharos
    Lvl 34 Hope the Togetic

    I think the best places to grind for exp are the grass up the waterfall on Route 37, and Victory Road, depending on what moves you can OHKO the wild pokemon with.

    Oh XD

    I misread your post, then. In that case, the spot of grass just south of the Safari Zone has Tauros, who are pretty much the best wild pokemon you'll find before the other two spots I mentioned.

    Route 44 grass is good for levelling anything that can land super effective hits on grass types (which I would guess is 3-4 of your pokes) and surfing on the same route will probably do well for the ampharos, but you may need to attach an Exp. Share to Sudowoodo and only bring it out against Lickitungs...

    On the other hand, wood hammer does recoil damage, making you that little bit more fragile- which isn't necessarily a good thing in a Nuzlocke run.

    It depends on if he got the good ability (rock head) on his sudowoodo.

    Nope, no rock head. I'll probably replace him with Dratini or something if I get one.

    I'm thinking of making a 2v2 team, since I've never really explored that option ever (before jumping into 3v3s and rotations). One combo I'm having some hanging issues deciding - does anyone know if Sweeper + Healer works? The two I'm looking to use are Cloyster and Audino, with the following stats:

    Spoiler
    Show

    Cloyster (252 attack, 252 spd, 6 hp) Focus Band
    Skill Link
    Adamant nature
    Shell Smash
    Ice Shard
    Icicle Spear
    Rock Blast

    Audino (252 hp, 252 spd, 6 def) Light Clay
    Healer
    Jolly nature
    Helping Hand
    Heal Pulse
    Reflect
    Light Screen


    But then, I had an idea: Simple Beam makes the target's ability become Simple. Which means Cloyster's Shell Smash would make it -2 def, -2 sdef, +4 att, +4 satt, +4 spd. However, I wouldn't be able to rely on Skill Link, which would make my choice of moves a wee bit smaller. I also have no idea what I'm doing in 2s, so :I.

    Problem with Simple is it'll double your stat debuffs as well, turning Shell Smash into -4 def, -4 sdef, +4 att, +4 satt, +4spd

    no... it would make it -2 for defenses, not -4. Also the move pool issue can be solved by running a special set with surf, ice beam, and hidden power fighting.

    My mistake then, I thought simple was something of a double-edged sword and doubled the debuffs as well (especially since Serebii's abilitydex text states "The effectiveness of all stat modifications is doubled.")

    It is, but Shell Smash is normally only a -1 to defenses.

    Does anyone know of a good remix fusing the R/S/E regi-trio theme with the Rayquaza theme from the same games? I can find plenty of seperate ones, and I can simply play those at the same time manually, but it's tricky to get them synchronized when doing so.

    Please?

    Oh bluhhhh, that's crap. Apparently Keldeo is BANNED in the battle subway (why??? none of the other swordsmen are). Also I just now got into the Dream World - it was quite fun! A question for those more experienced with it - can you bring back more than 1 pokemon per visit? I'm hunting for a Vulpix with its hidden ability, but I don't want to miss the others available...

    Only one at a time; the extra spots on the Friend Board are for promotional Pokemon, like the current Porygon promo. Since you say this is your first time in the DW, one thing of note: Vulpix will not show up in the Pleasant Forest until you have 10000 Dream Points.

    Dang. That's probably gonna take a while...though it'll give me time to get better at the minigames.

    In the meantime enjoy this tasty video

    Wrapping up this challenge was crazier than I thought, between how well the team ended up working and the hassle with the internet at the end; I must say that I enjoyed the experience overall.

    10/10 would try it again

    Shame Rapidash seemed to be the least useful there, but what can you say with a team with a surprising success rate? I must admit, Stunfisk is surprisingly potent. What nature/EVs did you use of that? (You might have said, but I can't remember.)

    (I'm wondering whether to try using something similar on my nominal Magnemite/Magneton whrn I get as far as my second BW2 game.)

    Yeah I never really found my groove with Rapidash, so it was hard to get decent footage.
    Stunfisk, if I recall correctly, was
    Static
    Bold
    Leftovers
    252 HP/252 Def/6 SpDef
    Scald
    Toxic
    Discharge
    Earth Power
