Actually, HP Grass does do quite a nice damage to a Tyranitar, especially after two CMs, an OHKO, I think.

Also, your spelling/grammar is blinding... so mak it luk betta ok plz???

who actually lets zam cm up when they have boah or something on their team.

with rockslide from adament ttar with full attack, i think thats an ohko on zam while hp:grass will do around 40% with a cm if you're lucky. crunch OHKOs zam with no cm's if you use the standard boah EVs so yeah.

but with a few cms i guess it could act as a pretty decent "counter"
(btw if you were talking to me about that spelling and grammar thing... i don't think i spelled anything wrong o.O)

So why even bring the point up in the first place?

With rockslide from adamant Ttar with full attack, I think that's an ohko on Zam while hp:grass will do around 40% with a CM if you're lucky. Crunch OHKOs Zam with no CM's if you use the standard Boah EVs, so yeah.

Sure, but Tyranitar doesn't like to take a HP Grass on the switch. Also, Ice Punch does more damage than HP Grass, and can even hax.

But with a few CMs i guess it could act as a pretty decent "counter".

No, it really doesn't.

(By the way, if you were talking to me about that spelling and grammar thing... I don't think I spelled anything wrong. o.O)
You forgot to capitalize "a few" things, along with your incredible use of abbreviations...

Ice punch < HP grass dmg wise, 75 < 70*2 (Ice not strong vs rock)

Or did you mean something else?

Also, everyone knows Alakazam w/ Dynamicpunch is instant win >:( Try eating that on the switch, Ttar :D

eh ok, so you want better capitalization and stuff, I'll work on it.

Ok, so the last time I've seen fp on Zam was... ok never, who uses focuspunch on Zam o.O Tyranitar is the only thing you'll kill with it. Blissey users will just use seismic toss assuming that you're gonna CM or try to attack which would be stupid considering its blissey anyways. and why waste all those EVs in attack, when clearly he works much better with special attacks.

so maybe sceptile with swords dance can damage crap with focus punch, but this is zam =\

Maybe in some small little world, but Thunder Wave / Seismic Toss / Aromatherapy / Softboiled is still the mainstream set.

You need 4 Calm Minds to have a chance of OHKOing TTar with no special defense/HP iirc.

Recover / Calm Mind / Encore / Psychic works well with Dugtrio, seeing how Dugtrio takes out like 90% of the set's mainstream counters (Metagross, Blissey, Houndoom, Tyranitar, etc).

Dugtrio doesn't look like a counter when it's killed by a boosted Psychic/Ice Punch and Zammy can do both. Not to mention every Dugtrio is Adamant these days, unless the team has serious Raikou issues, which should be easy to spot. Even then they don't run max most of the time; like, 44 SDef to survive HP Ice/Grass.

Ignoring the circumstances in which this point was raised, it cannot be denied that I do in fact have supernatural powers and am jesus (lower case "J" please I'm not an egotist but I don't need you silly little people mispelling my name).

Quite right.
But after a calm mind if you give it decent Evs in Sp.Atk. HP grass WILL Ohko Ttar.
go check on the damage calc before you type.

and if you have a dugtrio on your team with Alakazam, as you mentioned, your team will sweep very easily,yes but technically as dugtrio cannot switch into houndoom safely, not a counter.
