also, he uses blissy a lot and this team would be good against blissy
ok so a weavle with evs in spd and hp,with beat up
then 6 rampardoses
my understanding of beat up is it takes the base attack stat of all of ur team mates and ignores ivs and evs, so weavle with speed and hp so it can stay alive for a little longer and go first, then use beat up and have all the 165 base attack rampardoses attack for lotsa damge
what do you guys think? horrible idea?
keep in mind im just having fun and messing around so it doesnt have to be perfect
That does sund like a fun idea. Just remember, they don't call Rampardos a, "glass cannon" for nothing. From extreme to extreme, this is how I can see it going at both ends of the opponent skill level spectrum,
Extreme 1: Total Success
You use this team against a fairly casual, non-serious player who is using all slow pokes with low mediocre defense and type/pokes with attacks that rampardos and weavile resist and mediocre physical defense and type. Weavile's speed allows you to take a slew of weak pokes out before finally going down. You then send in your heavy infantry, and the Rampardos line muscles its way to victory.
Extreme 2: Total Failure
Your opponent sees weavile, he immediately switches in Scizor (resists all of weavile's common attacks). Maybe he gets a swords dance under his belt for kicks. He then KOs your entire team with 6 back-to-back bullet punches.
You make the decision.

Since then, they have hated Farfetch'd and did everything they could to make this thing suck as much as possible on the battlefield."
