    Good. I thought the thing I suggested with Sigyliph would work decently.

    And with Gorebyss, I'll just start with Amnesia, to boost its Sp. Defense first. And I'll teach it Surf. Or maybe Aqua Ring. And give it the Leftovers. I'LL MAKE IT WORK GEEZ.

    Oh! and by my calculations, Persion's Swift attack will have 240 power with Technician, STAB, and Life Orb. And it will never miss. I'm laughing just thinking about it.

    If you plan on running Analytic, why not just run Choice Specs instead? This way you can trick your item away to a physical pokemon and give it an item that won't even help, much like the extra speed would.

    I like your Sigyliph idea, and if you really only plan to defend with him its perfect. But something I would like you to think about is running it instead with Life Orb and Charge Beam. Even with Charge Beam's mediocre power, it does have like a 50% chance to increase your Sp. Attack, which will not only boost your power by itself, but it will increase the modifier on your Stored Power even further than you plan to, along with a 30% increase, free of charge. While your plan just might be better, think about it.

    I wrote that BEFORE I realized you had a Skarmory already, so you can ignore it.

    Yeah, that sounds good. I find that Ground-types on the switch works pretty well at fending it off (at least for a bit) for specs/scarf Jolteons. But, you're getting rid of your ground type, so.

    Even though Ground will do 4x damage on Heatran, I think you'll still find that Choice Scarf is the most common set for it, because it outruns unboosted Infernape without even trying, so.

    Oh, well I was thinking of modifying the Smogon special set, but yeah. Set it up with a chain of baton pass boosts, and then send this guy out

    <Technician> @Life Orb
    252 Satk 128 HP 128 Spe
    -Water Pulse
    -Icy Wind
    -Rest/other filler

    See, I plan to do Gorybyss Iron Defense x3 and Amnesia x3 then Baton Pass to Girafarig/other Agility x3 to Togetic/Togekiss/other Nasty Plot x3-6 then Baton Pass to Persian, where I continue to rip through everything like it's wet paper towel. Good or what?

    Smogon has fifth gen? since when?

    What all were you thinking of running on Sigyliph? And the last slot on Starmie? Personally, I find Trick works nice on Starmie if its holding the Choice Scarf/Specs, because you can reap the benefits if you don't need to Trick your item away, while at the same time you can cripple a Spikes/Stealth Rock user for a short period. And for Sigyliph, definitely go with Magic Guard @Life Orb because while Sigyliph doesn't really need the 30% increase, it's almost stupid not to accept it if you can get it for free, like he can.

    And actually now that I think if it you might want to throw Hidden Power (fire) on either Sigyliph or Starmie because you'll want it to deal with Scizor/other things like it. I actually find that the only realistic way to deal with Scizor is to get yourself a Magnezone with Magnet Pull and Hidden Power (fire), because it gets it out of the way so you don't have to think about it.

    I actually forget if you lead with Aero or Swellow. But, if you think you could deal with it, I could almost suggest you ditch Aero for Skarmory and lead with it. They can do the same exact things, but it eliminates your weakness to Water completely, and also lessens your weakness to Ice, which is nice considering Swellow's pathetic Sp. Defense.

    What are your plans for dealing with Heatran? Thinking about it now, Aero might still be smarter than Skarmory because not only does he resist fire, he gets earthquake for the swift kill. If you do it right, you might be able to pull a Aero that is faster than most scarfed Heatrans out there.

    And don't forget about Blissey. Do any of your pokemon get fighting moves? I feel like not only will Blissey's popularity not wane, but Chansey's popularity will skyrocket due to eviolite.

    So some things to consider. But before I go, I have recently been drawn to the pokemon Persian, and was thinking about making a normal mono for it. Thoughts on that?

    Okay, that makes sense.

    And to figure it out one simply adds or subtracts from the GMT depending on what time it is where they are? Like if it were 8:00 AM here, but 12:00 GMT, it would be GMT-4, yes?

    how does one derive their Time zone code thingy? (like yours is GMT-5) and I want to say mine is GMT-4 but I'm not sure. And why do I feel like we've discussed this before?

    [02:23:18] @amr97: Modern art includes artistic works produced during the period extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s, and denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that era.
    [02:23:20] @amr97: The term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation.
    [02:24:26] +Superbird: opinions, amr97, not definitions
    [02:24:49] @amr97: oh
    [02:24:52] @amr97: i don't get it
