Ladder be trippin balls after the reset. --- SAFARI FRIEND CODE 3067-4778-2482 Ground type: Nincada, Trapinch, Diggersby
Getting that high with only a 7-3 ratio shows how inflated the current system is. I've gone 6-0 and only been 1,850 last gen. Still that's a good rating! What team are you running?

That EV spread on Genesect is so ineffective. :(
Use Lonely with the EV spread of EVs: 234 HP / 156 Atk / 120 Spd instead. You'll have the same speed and have 7 more points into attack.

Hasty is required to run Shift Gear and Blaze Kick on Genesect.

Oh. Yea, that would explain why its Hasty with no special moves. Oops, I'm a dumbass. Lol --- "You got to be careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might not get there." - Yogi Berra

Showdown's rating system is really bad. Who remembers shoddy and 1600 being elite?
