Alakazam @ Life Orb
Timid ~ 252 Sp. Attack 180 Speed 76 Hp
Timid ~ 252 sp. Attack 216 Speed 40 Hp
Sychronise
~ Pyschic
~ Shadow Ball
~ Focus Blast/HP Fighting
~ Energy Ball/ Grass Knot/shock wave/Hp Electric

This set has some options, Hidden Power cna be used over focis blast, if you don't like that 70% accuracy. If your worried about gyarados, you can use Hp Electric, but then your stuck with Focus Blast. Energyball is for hitting things hard, but Grass Knot is for those Heavier Grounds.... Pyschic for stab, and shadow ball for those pesky Ghosts. It has enough Speed to outspeed starmie who is aiming to beat Gengars and that's it, if you want to play it safe, and than you can just run the second set which will outspeed a max speed starmie.

Alakazam @ Chocie Scarf/Toxic Orb/Flame Orb
Timid ~ 252 Sp. Attack 180 Speed 76 Hp
Timid ~ 252 sp. Attack 216 Speed 40 Hp
Sychronise
~ Trick
~ Pyschic
~ Foucs Blast/HP Fighting
~ Grass Knot/Energy Ball

Basically you can trick a Status effect onto your opponent or render them useless by tircking on a Choice Scarf. The Choice Scard wors best as you can stop Blissey and other pokes looking to wall Zam in their tracks. Once you trick the item off, you can just attack away...sometimes you can even get a beneficial item...or you can just mess up the opposing team by tricking everything everywhere, and stopping once you get an item you like.

Alakazam @ Life Orb/Expert Belt/Leftovers
Timid ~ 252 Sp. Attack 180 Speed 76 Hp
Timid ~ 252 sp. Attack 216 Speed 40 Hp
Sychronise
~ Encore
~ Calm Mind/Substitute
~ Pyschic/Shadow Ball
~ Focus Blast/Grass knot/Energy ball

Encore an opponents setting up, and then either stat up yourself or just set up a sub, and kick some ass. The attacking moves are totally up to you, and you decide what coverage you like better. Calm mind is there for enducing some serious damage, but getting raped by any pokemon faster than you that has a SE attack. IE: Weaville.

Alakazam @ Choice Scarf
Timid ~ 252 Sp. Attack 180 Speed 76 Hp
Timid ~ 252 sp. Attack 216 Speed 40 Hp
Sychronise
~ Pyschic
~ Shadow Ball
~ Energy ball/Grass Knot/HP Electric
~ Focus Blast/HP Fighting

Same idea as the Life Orb set, Except this packs alot more damage, but you can't pick moves as freely. Pyschic and shadowball are their for coverage, and Focus Blast will do a good deal of damage to blissey, but it has that 70% accuracy...HP fighting does alot less than Focus Blast, but it has a higher chance of hitting. Energy Ball is for stopping Vaporeon, while Grass Knot is for Hippowdon, Swampert and the other heavier grounds. It's really up to you to decide what you would rather 2HKO. Vaporeon, or Hippowdon and Swampert, it's really up to you. Again HP Electric is if your scared of gyarados.

Hojo's voice in Dirge of Cerberus is what happens when creators replace voice actors with parrots.

Thanks kr3bro428. Im still not sure which moveset to use though.. Any opinions on each of those?

@ ZephyEX - If your just going to be lazy and not help whatsoever, then quit wasting my time, and get out of my thread *Face palms you out of thread*
#5kirchinatorPosted 2/2/2008 2:47:32 PM
the trick set runs choice specs...giving an opponent free speed is never a good thing no matter who it is...

I think Ill use this set:

Alakazam @ Life Orb
Timid ~ 252 Sp. Attack 180 Speed 76 Hp
Timid ~ 252 sp. Attack 216 Speed 40 Hp
Sychronise
~ Pyschic
~ Shadow Ball
~ Focus Blast/HP Fighting
~ Energy Ball/ Grass Knot/shock wave/Hp Electric

This set has some options, Hidden Power cna be used over focis blast, if you don't like that 70% accuracy. If your worried about gyarados, you can use Hp Electric, but then your stuck with Focus Blast. Energyball is for hitting things hard, but Grass Knot is for those Heavier Grounds.... Pyschic for stab, and shadow ball for those pesky Ghosts. It has enough Speed to outspeed starmie who is aiming to beat Gengars and that's it, if you want to play it safe, and than you can just run the second set which will outspeed a max speed starmie.


Thanks for all the help guys.

You'll have to be very careful with 'Zam. If Weavile gets in, he dies If Weavile gets in, try switching. Not all run Pursuit....

Massively pissed if that crappy 35-character roster for Brawl is true. What a joke!

most of the time you just trick the scarf onto a pokemon like blissey...
