First we had Joel, who used a rental pass. This time, we have Joél who uses a completely customized pass and character and has a little tick over the "e". How nice.
Quagsire - Quita - Dive, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Stockpile
I've so been waiting to show off Quagsire's ability to annoy with Gorebyss and Kingdra as her partner, but I've been forced to simply attack whoever I face. Bah. The whole point to Dive is so that Quagsire cannot only take a free turn from damage by hiding underwater, but she can also heal up if one of my partners uses Surf. Yes, Surf hits Pokemon who use Dive just like Earthquake hits those who Dig. With Water Absorb, Dive makes a great move for Quagsire. It's as strong as Waterfall, and it has more benefits. What's the use of flinch hax if the Pokemon using the move is slow anyway?
Tauros - Moo - Zen Headbutt, Return, Role Play, Protect
Very much like my Stantler, this Tauros can't hit Sableye or Spiritomb to save its life. He's also quite the oddball on this team. Role Play is used either to copy any of his partners' abilities (or the opponents' if the abilities are beneficial). Chances are, he'll either heal up when water hits him or he'll speed up in the rain though. Since Intimidate is a one-time ability until you switch out, it works well that he changes to something else.
Gorebyss - Ariel - Surf, Ice Beam, Protect, Psychic
She doesn't lead as often as Kingdra because she's slower, has more weaknesses, and lacks Rain Dance, but I do enjoy pulling her out late in the game because she's more defensive, and she hits harder. Gorebyss certainly gets more love than Huntail online. The only reason why I chose the pink one is because I needed another special attacker.
Parasect - Lamella - Seed Bomb, X-Scissor, Spore, Protect
Okay, I need to use her in the near future. These teams have just scared me out of it, especially this one since so many of those Pokemon could've packed Ice, Rock, and Poison moves to take Parasect out. Parasect really isn't too bad as far as taking hits, and she has a sash and Protect just in case. She carries the much needed Grass moves on this team, and is resistant to both Electric AND Grass moves which is very beneficial on a team like this.
Kingdra - Knysna - Dragon Pulse, Surf, Rain Dance, Blizzard
Without her, this team would lack rain, so like Aerodactyl on Austin's team, Kingdra is almost always used. Whether she stays in to fight or is switched out directly after setting up is up to me, but she acts as this team's rock (although don't think I won't switch things up on you if you ever face these guys). I chose Blizzard over Ice Beam for the sake of diversity and the fact that it's strong and hits two opponents in spite of how inaccurate the move is.
Toxicroak - Charming - Poison Jab, Cross Chop, Sucker Punch, Fake Out
My favorite Kingdra partner, Toxicroak is awesome. His nickname is based after Prince Charming because he's just so handsome, don't you agree? Haha. He may not be a looker, but he is hugely useful on this team with Fake Out, a priority move that hits evil Psychic types that want him out, and a Poison and a Fighting move that the other Pokemon on this team lack. Grass-types beware! A common lead against this team used to be Jolteon and Starmie. While I haven't seen them in awhile, Kingdra and Toxicroak took those two out with ease.
Joél had a cool team, and it was similar to mine! It was cool to hear Tauros and Crobat come out at the same time. I never noticed how similar their cries were. Anyway, after a pretty rough start, I was able to take this guy on with the help of some critical hits, although I feel like they didn't matter so much. I'm confident that my moves could've taken those Pokemon out anyway. The opponent's Toxicroak is what prevented me from using Rain Dance at first. I didn't want to give my opponent any sort of benefit. Scarfed Primeape should be no surprise to me.
I chose - Tauros, Kingdra, Toxicroak, and Gorebyss
Joél chose - Crobat, Toxicroak, Primeape, and Kabutops
