I don't think I have the ability to do it myself, if you're asking my permission then go ahead. Maybe make it 'Hearthstone/Battle.Net ID' or something @Kate?

#1759961 Neocodex Ranks for Dummies

Posted by Yung on 28 May 2014 - 01:59 PM

My understanding has been that we implemented the entire nomination and voting system and set forth the criteria for Advanced+ that we currently have to prevent people from spamming their way to 500 posts. It's as simple as that. The nomination and voting system is to buffer spammy members from automatically gaining the rather extensive list of perks involved with earning the rank. It is also my understanding that the reason this system was implemented was because prior to the voting people were spamming to 500 to earn the rank. Anyone deserving of the rank does get Advanced+ it may not happen as quickly as you'd like but you will get voted in provided you remain even slightly active.

#1756757 Baton Pass

Posted by Yung on 24 May 2014 - 04:10 AM

 Baton Pass


This thread is dedicated to explaining what Baton Pass is, how it's used, what you can do to counter it, and what you can do to use it more effectively. Baton Pass a type of FOCUSED teams that focus on using the move to set up their other Pokemon. The move itself transfers over the stat changes of the Pokemon, as well as Substitutes and others modifiers:

  • Increases in Accuracy, Attack, Critical Hit %, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed.
    • Swords Dance
    • Shell Smash
    • Rock Polish
    • Speed Boost Ability
    • Bulk-Up
    • Iron Defense
    • Quiver Dance
    • Focus Energy
    • Etc
  • Decreases in Accuracy, Attack, Critical Hit %, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed.
    • Tail Whip (lol)
    • Sand Attack
    • Screech
    • Confide
    • Mudslap
    • Flash
    • Etc
  • Non-stat modifiers:
    • Substitute (with current Sub HP)
    • Reflect
    • Light Screen
    • Safeguard
    • Magic Coat
    • Mean Look
    • Etc
  • Healing Moves.
    • Aqua Ring
    • Ingrain
  • Status Conditions:
    • Confusion
    • Curse from Ghost Type


So as you can see there are quite a lot of stats, conditions, and benefits that can be transferred with the Baton Pass move to another Pokemon on your team. The basic strategy involves something like this:



Scolipede uses Swords Dance

Scolipede +1 Spe from Speed Boost Ability




Scolipede uses Protect

Scolipede +1 Spe from Speed Boost Ability




Scolipede uses Baton Pass

USER selects Dragonite


Dragonite has x2 Att and x2 Spe



And that's what makes Baton Pass a strong supporting move for many teams. There are other strategies involved in using a Baton Pass team but the basic idea is you take the benefits from Pokemon A and give them to Pokemon B.




What can you do to counter a Baton Pass team? There are several things but the primary things you can do is Taunt, Whirlwind, and Roar. As these moves have the most direct effect and force the boosted Pokemon to switch out or otherwise not use non-damaging moves (Taunt). Most teams can squeeze in a counter move or two and some teams Taunt to start the battle off in order to prevent an early set up. Roar is a sound based move and works with Substitute in place. HOWEVER!!!! Both Whirlwind and Roar can be bounced back by an opponent who has the Magic Bounce ability or uses the move Magic Coat. One final note is the if your opponent is using the move Ingrain they can't be forced out through either of these moves but Taunt keeps them from using that move in the first place.


#1755660 What is the pokemon they like least?

Posted by Yung on 22 May 2014 - 06:48 PM

I hate klink and klang, and the vanillite line.  I can't really say why.  I'm not a big pikachu fan either, I think I just get tired of pikachu!


Yeah I can agree with you there. I don't really understand those two evolutionary lines.


I like the Pichu line though, Raichu looks awesome imo.

#1750737 Rate My Pokemon Team Thread

Posted by Yung on 17 May 2014 - 08:21 AM

Gen 3 OU:

I'm a complete newbie when it comes to the playing competitively and would really appreciate some advice. :3


Forretress @ Leftovers

Ability; Sturdy // Nature: Careful // EVs: 252 Hp, 4 Def, 252 SDef



Rapid Spin

HP Bug


The one that comes first in my team to lay out three layers of spikes (if possible)


Blissey @ Leftovers

Natural Cure // Bold // EVs: 252 HP, 252 Def, 4 SDef


Seismic Toss




The status absorber and inflicter. Also a 'healer'.


Dusclops @ Leftovers

Pressure // Careful // EVs: 252 HP; 36 ATK; 20 Def; 200 SDef

Pain Split


Focus Punch

Night Shade


Another status inflicter. The rapid spin (and normal/fighting type etc.) blocker.


Celebi @ Leftovers

Natural Cure // Timid // Evs: 252 hp;80def; 176 speed


Swords Dance

HP Fighting

Leech Seed


The wallbreaker (sorta) <.<


Zapdos @ Leftovers

Pressure // Calm // EVs: 252 HP; 32 def; 224 SDef


Sleep Talk




The scouter. I'm considering replacing sleep talk for substitute but I'm not sure ;v;


Suicune @ Leftovers

Pressure // Bold // EVs: 252 hp; 252 def; 4 speed

Calm Mind


Ice Beam



Erm.. the sweeper? lol

Ice beam to get rid of threats such as Salamence/Dragonite

Surf.. STAB owo




Okay... first off:





Standard Blissey build, looks fine to me.


Your Dusclops is interesting, I'd favor Toxic over Burn since Toxic will result in the eventual death of the opponents pokemon unless immune. Is there a specific reason for this coverage on your team or are you just trying to cover a little bit of everything?





Your last two are their standard builds and work fine for the roles you've selected for them. I'd favor other pokemon but that's me. Overall not a bad looking team for Gen 3 OU.

#1747470 [Guide] Competitive Pokemon Team Building

Posted by Yung on 12 May 2014 - 07:12 PM

Yung's Guide to Competitive Pokemon Team Building


Getting into competitive Pokemon battles can seem both fun and daunting, but I'm here to put your mind at ease. Beyond beginners luck you're not likely to be an overnight Pokemon Champion however it is easy and quite fun to get into making competitive builds.


  • Starting off involves finding your pokemon, for this I recommend Smogon's Strategy Pokedex. On here you'll see a list of pokemon alphabetically, their type, what tier they're in, their abilities, and their stats.
  • Next you should choose the tier you're interested in battling in. Tiers are pretty simple. To keep it short and sweet you can filter for Tiers, and then select which tier you're interested in.
    • When looking at this list you will see Ubers at the top and going in descending order you'll see NFE (Not Fully Evolved) at the bottom.
      • LC (Little Cup) can use everything in the LC tier and below (NFE).
      • NU (Never Used) can use everything in the NU tier and below (LC & NFE).
      • RU (Rarely Used) can use everything in the RU tier and below (NU, LC, & NFE).
      • UU (Under Used) can use everything in the UU tier and below (RU, NU, LC, & NFE).
      • OU (Over Used) can use everything in the OU tier and below (UU, RU, NU, LC, & NFE).
  • The next thing you're going to want to decide is what kind of team you want.
    • WEATHER: If you look at Politoed for example (OU Tier Pokemon) you'll see one of it's abilities is Drizzle this creates Rain on switch in which boosts water type moves and makes moves like Thunder hit with 100% accuracy. This ability works really well with a pokemon such as Kingdra for example (UU Tier), you'll notice one of its abilities is called Swift Swim and it doubles its speed in the Rain giving you an advantage over your opponent. This is a good example of how you could start to put together a Rain team. Other themed teams include Sandstorm  and Sunny/Sun.
    • BALANCED: In this type of team set up you'll want to focus on having a few specific roles filled: ATT Sweeper, SpA Sweeper, DEF Wall, SpD Wall, Hazard Setup, and Status Afflicting. This may seem like a lot but many people have one or more Pokemon pick up more than one of these roles. Clefable (Fairy type, OU) for example works as an excellent SpD Wall, or a decent Def Wall, and a great Status Afflicting. Some players prefer to stick to Att or SpA Pokemon only for their sweepers but a true balanced team tries to cover the full range.
    • FOCUSED: Some players prefer to pick one or two Pokemon, Abilities, or Moves and build their team around that focus group. In an ExtremeSpeed team the focus is to use Pokemon with Priority moves, specifically ExtremeSpeed, such as Dragonite, Togetic, and Arcanine. Any other pokemon are used for their niche priority moves or as support for the Sweepers. Sableye is popular for its Prankster ability which increases the priority of Status Inflicting moves by 1 meaning they usually move first before the opponent. Taunt, Toxic, Thunderwave, and Will-O-Wisp are all popular Status Inflicting moves which can benefit from being used by a Prankster Pokemon.
    • HYPER-OFFENSIVE: This play style is extremely aggressive and mainly entails the usage of five or six Sweepers. The pokemon used are generally able to give themselves boosts such as Dragon Dance or Shell Smash and then proceed to sweep the enemy team independently. These pokemon tend to be fast but slower sweepers are still formidable when used tactfully. Deoxys-Speed is a popular Uber tier H-O Sweeper and Dragonite is a popular OU H-O Sweeper.
    • STALL: This is virtually the opposite of Hyper-Offensive. The objective here is to wall and burn or poison your opponents to death. While the occasional STAB move may faint an opponents pokemon the main objective here is to stay alive. Using pokemon with Recover moves is vital, making those such as Clefable popular for this style team.
  • After that you're ready to start building your teams, you'll want to choose your medium for battling Pokemon. A popular choice is Pokemon Showdown.
    • Pokemon Showdown has some really great features. When you're in battle type /weakness POKEMON to see a list of weaknesses that pokemon posses so you can use your best Super Effective move against them! If you are against a Dragonite for instance you could use /weakness Dragonite and a list showing Dragon, Fairy, Ice, Rock (not counting abilities) will display. A type in BOLD means the move type is 4x effective.
    • If you'd prefer to broadcast your check of weaknesses you could use the !weakness POKEMON command instead, then your opponent will see what you see. The /weakness POKEMON displays to you and you alone.
    • You can also use the /effectiveness MOVE, POKEMON command to see how effective a specific move is against a specific Pokemon or type.
    • Other useful commands include:
      • /data POKEMON
      • /data TYPE
      • /data ABILITY
      • /data ITEM
      • /dexsearch MOVE, POKEMON (Tells you if a specific move is compatible with a specific Pokemon)
      • /dexsearch MOVE, ALL (Lists all Pokemon that learn that particular move)
  • Have fun with it; it's quite possible to use really dynamic teams and do well with them.




Strong Pokemon, Weak Pokemon

That's the only selfish perception of people.

Truly skilled Trainers should try and win with their favorites.

Thanks for the response. I didn't know that reflection doesn't even block the icons anymore. What I meant to ask was:

  1. Can reflected icons be blocked again by the attacker if the attacker moves first? second? What was it originally?
  2. I heard reports that they no longer use opponent's strength boost. Do regular reflected icons also use opponent boost? And do you have to click first or second?



  1. No reflected icons can't be block and/or reflected and never have been able to. The reason for this is to prevent endless loop turns.
  2. Okay so...
    1. I've tested a 1.5 boost against a 7 boost and the damage was consistent with a 7 boost. It may have been isolated to the items I was using.
    2. Regular reflected icons do not use your opponents strength boost though I believe TNT said somewhere eventually they all would.
    3. Second iirc.

#1745083 Do you believe laws are opinionated?

Posted by Yung on 08 May 2014 - 11:14 AM

What are your beliefs and do you believe that it is in our best interest?


Do I believe laws are opinionated? Yes.

Do I believe laws are made in our best interest? In the most general of sense, yes. More often laws are made to protect in some degree those making the law.

Do I believe that law makers are opinionated and that influences the laws they pass? Yes... hence every political conflict over law making. In the U.S. Congress there is a primarily two-party system and the law makers are extremely opinionated. Welcome to politics.

I personally use the daqtools site and place my bets based on those adjustments. My yield is profitable enough that I'm rarely making less than 400k a week.

#1744347 Neopian Lottery calculator

Posted by Yung on 06 May 2014 - 04:26 PM

@KlienBucket if I may make a suggestion. You should add a single button that opens all 20 tabs for you so that you don't have to click each one since you already gotta close all 20. 21 clicks is a lot less daunting than 40.


I do really love this web app that you've created and I'm definitely using it to my advantage. Thank you very much for the contribution.
