i hate how competetive battling is still speed dominated

#1hippyshade117Posted 11/11/2013 2:42:15 PM
like, to the degree that it is

recently my battles with one of my friends have all been 6-0 sweeps where he sends out Gliscor and no matter what I have out, its always an OHKO from Gliscor

Metagross? night slash OHKO
Heliolisk? (faster base speed and EV trained with +nature) brave bird OHKO
Gengar? night slash OHKO
Goodra? brave bird OHKO

and so on and so forth

Did Gliscor get Brave Bird this gen? Or do you mean acrobatics?

If your Metagross is getting OHKO'd by a Gliscor, something is seriously wrong.

Night slash from Gliscor shouldn't be KOing Metagross. Are you EV training/IV breeding (at the very least, one of these?)

Two of those should be much faster than gliscor.

Metagross is a terrible example of a slower Pokemon, since it has access to Bullet Punch.

You're clearly not EV training or IV/Nature breeding at all if you're losing that badly. Speed is countered by defense or greater speed, which your team is capable of.

Two of those are faster than Gliscor and Metagross shouln't be OHKO'd by anything from Gliscor.
