Predictions for future generations in Pokemon: Bruxish will get Fisheous Rend and Flip Turn meaning a set like this could be possible:
Bruxish @ Choice Scarf  
Ability: Strong Jaw  
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe  
Jolly Nature  
- Fishious Rend  
- Psychic Fangs  
- Crunch  
- Flip Turn

Fisheous Rend will be given to most water Pokemon, but its power will be nerfed to 60. It will still get double power if the Pokemon using it moves first.
Bolt Beak will be given to most electric Pokemon, but its power will be nerfed to 60. It will still get double power if the Pokemon using it moves first.
Fire Lash will be given to most fire types and power is buffed to 85.
Sceptile will get Nasty Plot.
Shore Up will be given to most ground, steel, and rock types, but only heals 1/4 of your HP, and 1/2 in Sandstorm.
Zoroark will get the ability Imposter.
Jynx will get Freeze Dry.

Some advice to users:
Read the rules thoroughly, don't be a jerk to others, use good grammar, explain your answers clearly

If you get the answer to a question from a site, make sure to leave a source. A link to said site is also nice. Don't get upset if your question or answer is flagged. If you ask a dupe question, you can learn from the original. If it's low-quality, use it to improve your later questions/answers.

Looking for more advice for users. Please post on my wall if you have good advice for users.
 For new users who post movesets, here is a reference on how movesets should be formatted so they can be easier to read:

[Pokemon] @ [Item]
Ability: [Ability]
EVs: [#] [Stat] / [#] [Stat] / ...
[Nature] Nature
- [Move 1]
- [Move 2]
- [Move 3]
- [Move 4]

Those who get Expert, please, please, please don't misuse your powers like Gligurr did.

Hello. I'm -MegaManectric-. You can call me Manectric, or MM if you want.
Former names on Pokebase:


I'm also good at making gimmick sets. (Good and bad) The gimmick set for today is:

Arctovish @ Leftovers  
Ability: Water Absorb  
EVs: 248 HP / 20 Atk / 56 SpA / 184 Spe  
Hasty Nature  
- Substitute  
- Fishious Rend  
- Freeze-Dry  
- Super Fang

I'm starting this Abra with the ability Synchronize service for the games X/Y, Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon.  Here are the requirements:
1: Which Nature you need
2: Wheter you want an Abra or Kadabra (Kadabra will evolve into Alakazam
3: Wheter you want IVs or not
4: Friend code
The natures I'm accepting is the following:
Please wall me if want to catch a Pokemon with a certain nature. I will provide you with an Abra with that nature with the ability Synchronize.

If possible, I'd like confirmation on whether or not you *can* trade on the GTS, not why you can't. If that's all you can find though, feel free to answer and say it's impossible to tradeo n the GTS anymore.
