• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

Because scald is 15 bp less in exchange for 30% burn? The only way this isn't worth it is if you consistently use status moves. Surf might be better on the starmie, but that depends on if he reliably t-waves. :/

Why quick attack on scizor? I don't do competitive so I might be missing something obvious.

It's still getting walled by any steel-type. I'd highly suggest replacing that quick attack with either brick break or superpower.

Magnezone is capable of learning Thunder and Rain Dance, as well as having Magnet pull, meaning that most hazard users are as good as dead.

Gastrodon is just a troll. It won me so many games it's ridiculous.

Have you also considered Volcarona or Tornadus?
