magic9mushroom: How would you fight Raikou with Iron Tail Steelix? Roar whenever it's active, Sub when it comes back in and you don't have one, and Curse when it comes back in and you do have one, and whacking it with Iron Tail when it comes in and you're at +6? Jun 13, 2014 12:34:36 GMT 1
somebody: yup pretty much. I was just thinking of it as a temporary "get Raikou out of your face" kind of check, though. What you're proposing is once they've caught on and (presumably) you've already killed the waters, in which case, you're golden. Jun 13, 2014 16:44:33 GMT 1

Isa: PO blasted their Wiki that had good Jorgen-written analyses. Here's an old saving link: Jul 13, 2014 18:59:51 GMT 1
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. Jul 18, 2014 0:45:13 GMT 1
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. Jul 18, 2014 7:45:56 GMT 1
Isa: Snorlax Hidden Power Bug vs. Celebi: 217-256 (53.8 - 63.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery[br] Jul 18, 2014 8:33:29 GMT 1
Isa: I dunno I rarely find myself using Earthquake, figured a change might be cool. Jul 18, 2014 8:36:02 GMT 1
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. Jul 21, 2014 19:54:40 GMT 1
jorg: :( Jul 23, 2014 1:32:26 GMT 1
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... Jul 23, 2014 9:00:09 GMT 1
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. Aug 1, 2014 0:55:19 GMT 1
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
