Choice Band Aerodactly shrugs off Talonflame. Regular Aerodactyl laughs at it. Brave bird and Flare Blitz will do only half damage even if Talonflame has choice band.
252 Atk Choice Band Talonflame Brave Bird vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Aerodactyl: 152-179 (50.3 - 59.2%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
Which basically means Aerodactyl is a check at best, but if you switch it in as a counter it will die. Though since nothing forces Talonflame to actually stay in once Aerodactyl comes in as a check...
*shrugs* There are other ways to get around it, though.

"Battle Spot Choice Band Gale Wings Brave Bird Talonflame."
That sounds pretty specific.

I see Life Orb Talonflames more than Choice Band. Is it just me? --- 3DS FC: 3050 - 7604 - 7991 Friend Safari: Octillery, Floatzel, Frogadier

Everytime I build a new team, I LITERALLY have to factor in "The three". Gengar (Mega or otherwise), M-Kanga and Talonflame. I don't think you can make an efficient team now, without factoring in those three. Over-centralisation?, I dunno, but it's awfully common. --- FC 2681 0368 5541 IGN Cyrus

Well, I don't play via Battle Spot, but at least on Pokemon Online Life Orb IS used more often than Choice Band (Leftovers -> Life Orb -> Choice Band is the top 3 over there). Don't know how it currently looks like on Showdown, though.

I haven't had any troubles with Gengar yet. But it's entirely possible the one's I've faced have been incompetent. --- 3DS FC: 3050 - 7604 - 7991 Friend Safari: Octillery, Floatzel, Frogadier
