  • I will make some more videos, honest :(.

    I recorded two last weekend but just wasn't happy with them at all. Going to find a team and climb to Master Ball, and go from there :).
    *Spends day breeding Snow Warning Alolan Ninetales and Slush Rush Alolan Sandslash, struggles to find Pokémon to use with them, and other people that are currently using them*

    Sad times. Any ideas?

    Something with Magic Guard can probably help.
    Reuniclus has Magic Guard and would help mitigate the Fighting weakness Ice types have.
    Thick Fat Mamoswine could help, too. Diesnt do a lot to Fire Weakness, but it's something.
    Advice - one long video at 39 minutes long, or 4 shorter videos of each battle. One has a lot of good decision making, the others are some quirky teams which some people might find interesting.

    What would be better? All are using @Gokudera's team that I built in the Teambuilding thread.

    Thanks :D.

    I'll try and keep them shortish though. 30 minutes of Me, Myself and I commentating on Pokémon might get a bit... Weird.

    It might sound weird, but I quite like your accent. It's nice :)
    But maybe you can edit in some background music?
    Maybe some glitchcity remixes?
    Anthrix

    I'll see what I can do :). Won't be immediate, but yeah.

    (I wonder if you can turn off the music for Pokemon and keep the battle noises... Hmmm)

    *picks up bass and starts recording noise*
    Kind of stuck for inspiration, got any team ideas?

    Use Scrafty.
    Team done.
    :]

    Although you could probs build around it but I've heard it's struggling greatly in VGC but it should be a challenge to make it work.

    I've used Scrafty a lot before. It's the slowest Fake Out user, which makes it pretty good as a Trick Room sweeper. Intimidate is good, but Moxie makes it a bit of a late game threat and a bit snowbally. It's coverage is also really, really good and can threaten some Trick Roomers with STAB Max Darkness. Fairy weakness is a bit of a problem, but it's got some uses.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. Might give it a go. I've got this hard Trick Room team idea with Zoroark, so going to go with that first :).
    Ok, so I've kinda figured out how to make basic videos, how to record the matching voiceover, I just need the artsy side of things now.

    Help? My photoshop skills are literally limited to cutting and sticking :(

    (Why can I draw manufacturing details for a structural steel roof, but not a tiny avatar :()
    I admire how much dedication you've been giving to the competitive subforum! The fact that I don't keep up with VGC at all has stopped me from contributing much.

    I HAVE CLEARED OUT 10 BOXES OF RUBBISH POKÉMON.

    That was way overdue, although I now have found 2 boxes of usable stuff which I need to train up :P.

    Nice! My boxes have been a nightmare ever since I bred for shinies a few months ago. So many breedjects and surprise trade stuff to get rid of...
    Anthrix
    Anthrix
    I kept doing that too, and then realised that I was breeding more than it was going to trade them. I've been really shrewd recently, thanks to the IV judge I will just get rid of things that aren't even remotely good enough, if I'm not breeding for an improvement something.
    Gokudera

    I need to do the same.
    They've made moving Pokemon around easier, but it's still a pain in the butt lol.
    The only box I have somewhat organized is for the Legendaries I've gote. Via DMax Adventures.
    OK something must be up, as I just hatched a shiny FROM THE FIRST EGG I BRED of the shiny Electivire I got on here.

    That's 3 shinies, in 4 days? What the actual...

    Don't jinx yourself haha. Hopefully that shiny luck continues! I actually had a similar spurt back in July. One weekend I got around 8 shinies from raids and breeding.
    Anthrix
    Anthrix
    Yeah I hope this continues :).
    Goes months without getting a shiny, then gets two shinies in two days.

    Found someone who had a Red Gyarados Max Raid, and didn't set a link code. It came up just as I finished beating a Drapion Max Raid, and I was second in the group. It would have been easier if we weren't all Electric types with a Lightning Rod Raichu in the middle, I had to resort to using Dracozolt shaky Hustle accuracy and Dragon Claw.
    Anthrix
    Anthrix
    Oh the worst thing was that was someone's choice. Our team comp was Mew (that transformed turn 1), my Dracozolt, a Raichu and a Regieleki. Can't remember if the host had the Mew or the Regieleki, but the Raichu was slowest and used Thunder Punch for a few turns of absorbing electric moves, before using Discharge with all those lightning rod boosts, knocking out the Regieleki and after Mew turned into Gyarados.

    I'm just glad I got to Dynamax turn two, and use Max Wyrmwind instead.

    The joys of randoms.
    Gokudera

    I was thinking of the DMax Adventure because I can't read lmao.

    That honestly sounds like they were trying to sabotage and troll.
    They purposefully Thunder Punched to get boosts, then Discharged.

    I'm sorry that happened, man.
    No one deserves to be part of something that stupid.
    Anthrix
    Anthrix
    Yeah, always bring your best Pokemon to Max Raids, as you never know who you're going to be with!
    I caught a shiny Dry Skin Jynx in a Dynamax adventure! That will be usable as well, as it wants Fake Out. Actually, between Fake Out and Lovely Kiss, it seems quite disruptive. Could be interesting!

    Also, it can be one shot by anyone using Max Rockfall or Max Flare even with Focus Sash. Awkward.
    Gigarchomp

    How can it be OHKO'ed with a Focus Sash?
    Anthrix
    Anthrix
    With Dry Skin, it takes damage if it is in the Sun. A lot of Pokémon have Max Flare or Max Rockfall, and I just think it is hilarious it's weak to both of those moves, and it dies at the end of the turn to it as well. Flip side, it's immune to Hail and heals in Rain...

    So not really Ohko, but close enough. If you Fake Out their Dynamax, then it could quite easily faint without doing anything other than drawing a single attack away. High risk, high reward :D.
    I have finally caught Galarian Moltres. In a Luxury Ball. With the lowest Attack IV at level 50.

    That took too long - my capture card has recorded a 54 minute struggle, and that's not including the botched attempts beforehand.
    FORTY LUXURY BALLS. MY AMOONGUSS RAN OUT OF SPORES.

    4 hours of soft resetting later, I have the original Regis with the right IVs. 3 down. 2 to go, and then I have to grind on my other account to get the last one.

    I hate legendaries so much.
    Anthrix
    Anthrix
    Worst thing is, I have 20 Master Balls...

    To be honest, I did a trade with Benjamin on here, and he wanted to catch all the Regis in Heavy Balls,and it got me thinking, why not try and get them in a ball that doesn't get used much?

    I have 900+ of them as well, seemed like an OK idea at the time but Regice just wouldn't play ball.
    Gokudera
    Gokudera
    I might have a new thing to do when the ball is shaking.
    I used to hold Down B, but I held Right on the Right stick, and I caught Regieleki in a Premier Ball in Red health.
    I was extremely surprised. Joy Con drift worked in my favor lmao.

    @Gokudera DON'T SAY THINGS LIKE THAT, You'll bring back all my 8 year old superstitions and I'll be trying them all out...

    I swear I wore my game boy colour buttons doing those.
    Spent 3 hours soft resetting for a 3 Attack IV Calyrex... And the Spectrier I got with it is rubbish with 31 Attack IV.

    I hate legendaries. If there is a format in the future which requires them, then I have literally go to restart the game to try and get him again....

    Yeah my friend traded me like straight after XD.

    But thanks anyway!
    Apparently 11 straight wins on the Doubles Ranked ladder puts me into Master Ball Tier, no. 703 in the world right now.

    Like, wow. First time for everything :D.
    Up to Ultra Ball Tier, 8 wins, 0 losses.

    Made a big play, switching out Primarina for Coalossal to take a Thunderbolt from Duraludon, expecting their Milotic to kill my Tsareena, giving me Coalossal and Primarina on the field for the late game, Coalossal sweep.

    With Sun up, he survived a Scald, a Thunderbolt and an Aqua Jet, taking out Duraludon, Centiscorch and Milotic in two turns. Gotta love GMAX Volcalith residual damage!

    I still cannot fathom why Game Freak got rid of the VS Recorder in SwSh.

    ... 5 months in and I've only just noticed that. That would have way more sense than what they have now, I. E. The 30 second record button thing.
    Gokudera
    Gokudera
    The record button works well for capturing funny moments.
    I have a few saved. Like combos I've done in BlazBlue X Tag Vs, or a few funny interactions in saint's Row the Third, but it wont work for matches.
    They seriously need to bring the VS Recorder back. I'm really hoping we get that with Crown Tundra.
    I doubt we will, but a man can dream.
    I did it. I caved in, and bred a competitive Amoonguss.

    I feel dirty and awful.

    Yeah that would be a good buff. Own Tempo, Inner Focus, Oblivous and Scrappy already block Intimidate, ignoring Follow Me and Rage Powder would be good too.

    Stalwart and Propeller Tail ignore Rage Powder / Follow Me / Ally Switch, but it's a shame its only on two Pokémon.
    Gokudera
    Gokudera
    And Propeller Tail isn't the ideal choice for Barraskewda anyway, since Swift Swim is a thing.

    Maybe we could get new moves in Crown tundra that ignore Rage Powder/Follow Me. Isle of Armor focused on terrain centric attacks (which I really like) so maybe we can get some in the Tundra.
    Anthrix
    Anthrix
    They added in Terrain centric attacks, and then banned Indeedee and Rillaboom because they were the best abusers.

    I think Propeller Tail is the better ability - there are better Swift Swimmers (cough Kingdra) who have much better bulk, especially when Dynamaxed.

    I saw a Propeller Tail, 4 attack Barraskewda destroy Aaron Zheng this morning, enabling a Taunt Vanniluxe to stop his Trick Room going up, and oh shotting any redirection and Trick Room leads with a combo of Max Airstream, Blizzard and Taunt.

    Maybe but yeah, more redirection counters please!
