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

Raaaaaa! It's on. I usually see bug when I'm on but 1-5am GMT I have access to the one computer that will actually run PO without the program freezing and making me lose by timout. If the real match is anything like my practise with this guy I don't think I'm gonna be in for very long ^ ^
