Hey Josh. Thanks a ton for having my back on my first ever team. I accidently put you shaved my back.
Oh ya and great team there!
4 Def or SDef on Thundurus. Maybe Forretress > Ferro to Rapid Spin Rocks. You have 3 SR weaknesses.
Ah, dang it. Forgot about Thundurus's HP crap. And I realize the SR weaknesses, but I've really stopped carrying spinners recently. Haven't really.. cared? Thundurus-T isn't exactly a bulky monster, but can get some HP back from electric moves aimed at Gyarados. Tornadus-T has his ability fixing that issue. Gyarados is... well, he's Gyarados. Thanks for the EV reminder on Thundurus. I can never get that down xD
@IncredibleDEVil - lolwut?
If you didn't know, if you use 1 attack with Tornadus-T after Stealth Rock and switch out, you lose 2% of your health. So you don't FULLY recover it :D
Also, Superpower > Dark Pulse to murder Blissey + Chansey.
Oh boy, 2% :P

I'll try that out. Haven't been seeing Blisseys recently :/
Why would he not want 4 HP EVs on Thundurus? Does it have to do with SR damage or something?
If Thundurus' HP number is even, it can only switch into the field with SR up 3 times without fainting.
Altough since Thundurus' base HP is 268 uninvested, 4 HP EVs makes it uneven.
I figured it had something to do with that. Thanks Hex
Divine Comedy you and I have been paired for an Ubers match in the Gym Leader Tournament. Meet me iin the chat before Wed. October 17th!
