Roar. Problem solved.


Magic bounce/soundproof/ingrain problem not solved.


Roar ruins the main BP users, Ninjask and Scolipede. I ran a Swampert with Stealth Rock and Roar. Never encountered a BP line that could do anything. Not once.


Well that means the people you fought didnt know what they were doing with it cause of I see a swampert I switch in espeon expecting the rocks or roar which one or the other is used if they have those moves if they don't I switch out an prepare to set up

They bring out Espeon. Worst case, I get stealth rock on my team (not a big deal honestly), otherwise, I end up getting my turn to switch after seeing you have Espeon. Then I have a mon who can handle both Espeon and either of the two lead BP users. I'm telling you, I've been through just about every type of BP line team. The only one that gave me a problem EVER was an Eveelution line. And that was just once because of the surprise factor.

Well that fact(s) change every thing so anyway have fun defeating BP teams (also btw with my team I'm very flexible for which mon I sendin when for setting up cause of espeon dies Idgaf cause my sweeper is a slyveon no dark dupes will wall me)

Alternatively, you could use Dragon Tail, Circle Throw, or Whirlwind. Roar is just the easiest to utilize for me, but all of them work. I can see how people might have a hard time with BP teams I suppose, but I've just never had that issue.

This its getting pathetic and with a lot of butthurt.

"I can't deal with something! Lest try to ban it" logic its starting to get me...and i don't even play.


It's because you don't play that you think it's pathetic. I don't support the ban only because I want some semblance of simplicity in the game.

Yup. Another Gamefaq baddie.

Roar and Whirlwind are ineffective because Ingrain and Magic Bounce.

Dragon Tail fails because Sylveon and Mr. Mime.

Now tell me, what Pokemon that isn't going to drag you down will you put Circle Throw on? Lucario? Especially when he has much better things he rather be running? Nevermind it also has a -6 Priority so god help you if you Zapdos has Heat Wave. Which is now part of the optimal Baton Pass team.

Although I'm aware it's sarcasm, I'll respond honesly: No, I'm not. I haven't been on in a while. But BP lines were like free passes to me when I encountered them. So w/e
