My dillhole friend is getting his first Pokemon game

#1LuciusMcNastyPosted 2/11/2013 9:26:08 PM
My friend is one of those cocky dudes who thinks he's better than anyone at everything, and he's getting his first Pokemon game. I've never been big on competitive battling, and I don't know much about it.

Are there any specific teams or mons I could use to take him down a few pegs?

Also, secondary question, can you use a 3DS to battle with a Lite or a Phat?

Thanks

Nothing funnier than beating someone that actually falls for the Aaron endeavor/shell bell trick.

Tyranitar or Hippowdon for residual sand damage helps as well.

Or just annoy them with DW Riolu + Roar + Copycat.

Ah yes...

Personally, I'm more of a fan of Quick attack + Endeavor + Focus Sash.

Oh no, it's Wobbuffet!

Moves: Encore, Safeguard, Counter, Mirror Coat
Ability: Shadow Tag
Item: Leftovers

Put your EVs into Defense and Speed. Prepare to be hated by your friend forever.

er, I mean Defense and S. Defense. Not speed. Do not give it speed EVs.

Just use whatever you like, or use the Wob mentioned. No one likes being on the wrong end of the Wob. Ignore the Aron tactic as you're not big into competitive battling and it's rather *easy* to defuse.




Also, secondary question, can you use a 3DS to battle with a Lite or a Phat?

Yes. No one seemed to answer this one, but yes. You can.
