Isa: Despite dead, still gonna try: How legit would Snorlax with HP Bug be in Celebi-legal OU? Obviously cripples Celebi heavily, while still dealing decent damage to Tyranitar. Completely shut down by Gengar though, but Pursuit can help.

Jorg: How much does HP Bug do? Is it a 2HKO?
Jul 18, 2014 7:45:24 GMT 1
Jorg: Regardless, you'd have to be pretty desperate to pull a stunt like that. It really wouldn't be worth it.

Isa: Snorlax Hidden Power Bug vs. Celebi: 217-256 (53.8 - 63.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery[br]

Isa: I dunno I rarely find myself using Earthquake, figured a change might be cool.

Isa: Due to the lack of a player base, GSC isn't going to be featured in the next POCL - rest in peace, old gens.

Isa at work: I do not think it needs to be said but I am incredibly disappointed with the decision. I will try to host a GSC tour on PO and see what happens...

Isa: Jorgen, how obligatory would you say it is for a GSC team to include a Ground type?
Jul 30, 2014 14:38:11 GMT 1
jorg: It's only mandatory if you need it for defense. So if you don't have Raikou/Blissey, you need a Ground.
Aug 1, 2014 0:48:34 GMT 1
jorg: You also need a third thing that may not necessarily resist Thunder, but can hold its own against Electrics, particularly Zapdos. Example: Tyranitar.
Aug 1, 2014 0:49:09 GMT 1
jorg: You also need a switch-in to Gengar that either resists Explosion or isn't one of your two main Zapdos counters. The point is you don't want to be left with only Lax to take Thunders.

magic9mushroom: Is Piloswine best Zapdos counter or best Zapdos counter?
Aug 1, 2014 1:43:42 GMT 1
jorg: Neither, that's Raikou's job. HP Water isn't unheard of, I've used it on teams needing better Hard Grounds coverage before.
Aug 1, 2014 5:30:14 GMT 1
magic9mushroom: True enough. I still think it's kinda cool in a gimmicky way, though.
Aug 1, 2014 10:55:20 GMT 1
Isa: Aerodactyl is obviously the best counter to Snorlax, resists all three common attack types
