Name: John
Timezone and time I'm free: Eastern(US) and All weekend pretty much and also during the weekdays I am usually free from 9-11 Eastern time
Tier I wish to learn : 5th Gen OU
Experince Level (have battled before) : I used to battle competitively about 3 years ago in 4th Gen OU. I haven't played pokemon competitively for about the whole 3 years and the metagame has changed so much and I just need someone to teach me the new metagame. I need to know the basic sets for threats, pokemon that work well together, and really just someone to mentor me in 5th Gen OU because I want to start battling competitively again.
About Me: I am Filipino and I play basketball and tennis. I have been a pokemon fan ever since I was little and will continue to be one. I can't wait for Pokemon X and Y! I spend most of my time either hanging out with my friends, playing sports, or playing Xbox. I mostly play sports games such as Madden, FIFA, and NBA 2k. I also play some Call of Duty.
Wifi/PO: FC: 1808 1310 3319. I don't have PO, but my Showdown is xJVillzz

Welcome ! having previous experience will really help out with getting started again. The first thing we like to do is have people pick pokemon they like to use. What are some of the pokemon you use to use on your teams?

I used to use suicune on almost all of my teams and i also used to use heatran, jirachi, gliscor, gyrados. I checked and these pokemon are still very relevant in the OU game today, however I don't know any of the new pokemon and which ones work well with each other.

Thank you so much! I've been trying to play around on Showdown just to see the sets of different pokemon and get used to the new metagame.

For Gyarados it looks like Rotom W would pair well with it. Rotom W will help get rid of skarmory.

For Alakazam, Deoxys-D and Skarmory could be a good choice. Also Magnezone to trap the Steel pokemon.

Alakzam like thing's that really punch hole ya know? I mean despite all that attack he is technically weaker than latios and keldeo because they have these base 140 and 120 moves they like to spam about. Alakazam is a cleaner, he coems in and cleans up the mess another pokemon makes, he is fast, real fast, secodn only to jolteon in the ou tier. Thsi means thing's like keldeo, terrkion, latios, kyurem-b, are all subject to being outsped and killed by alakzam and int he case of the latter 2 they need to be weakened first.

So for alakzam we need a real bruiser, soemthing that just comes in and ou leaving a huge mess behind and for that reason i feel i must mention a few pokemon.

come out our new ou star kyurem b



stats of the gods this guy has, but his unfortunate typing leaves him open to priority and fierce threats such as keldeo and terrkion both laugh at him, but here is the thing nothing can switch into him with out serious injury an dbehind a sub he cna sue his huge bulk to kill then mane anything that comes in. Seriously this guy hits like an a bom and even harder than deoyxs d if your using outrage. With alakzam you have a train wreck and a demolition crew, kyurem coems in and causes a disater and alakzam comes in to clean it up.

The only issue si they share a lot of problems such as scizor, tyranitar, breloom so they need a bit of helping hand, focus sash helps alakazam hereas it gives him a chance to ko a counter for kyurem he may not be able to with life orb such as breloom and scizor.

This si hyper offensive in a way, just hreading the opponents tam to pieces and then clenaing up the mess and any dragon can help alakzam do it but some are better than others and keldeo, terrkion, magenzone and heatran all aid to this cause.

Scarf terrakion stands out or even terrakion in general as only scizor can take its stab moves or a coverage move and not very well, would you like me to look into solving this issue?

Well most terrakion counters are in the lower tiers and since he can potentially mane the team if scizor is gone and who has no business switching in. I would recommend in place of celebi one of nidoqueen golurk or tangrowrth

Thanks! I just have a question. Celebi is my main counter for bulky water types such as jellicent. Will I be ok without celebi?
