Can't hack gen 6s. Only gen 5 and lower, sent to White/Black, and moved to XY through pokebank.

And yeah I can get you a 6IV ditto. It'll have Spanish heritage for MMing as well. What nature do you want for it?

Expect a few days though for the talonflame. Have midterms hanging over my head.

Assuming Gale Wings adamant nature?

That would be ideal. As much as I love my skarmory I need Talonflame for that slot on my team.

I was going to give you the shiny whimsicott anyways but if you're offering, I guess I'll take a well bred Honedge.

I'm not sure you understand how natures work.

You'll have to pick one stat for nature to boost and one stat for it to decrease.

Natures can effect every stat except the health stat.

Based on your description you'd have to either lower def or sp.def
So either:

Lonely: + Atk, - Def
Naughty: + Atk, - Sp.Def
Mild: + Sp.Atk, - Def
Rash: + Sp.Atk, - Sp.Def

Alternatively you could go for an Adamant (Atk+, Sp.Atk-) nature or Modest (Sp.Atk+, Atk-) Nature is you want to specialize in only physical or special attacks.

Also Dauss, as awesome as it is to get a free pokemon; I'd still prefer to trade something worthwhile.
What kind of honedge are you looking for?

I can do EV's to max out the attack and special attack, so I need a nature to do the speed. I guess if something has to be low, make it be defense.


These are literally all my pokemon, with the dude I have selected as my most "interesting" if you will.

Also why aren't we all posting each other's friend codes 4468-1096-7979.

I've been doing a lot of UU this gen. I'm no Contrary, but I'm getting there. Scolipede (my favorite pokemon) is a god this gen. I like mine as a full offensive with assault vest, HP and attack, adamant nature (and a 4 in def). IMO bug is the best type, followed by poison, and Roxie's gym was one of the best designed in any pokemon game I've ever played (though it was gen 5).



but speed boost scoly is really good.

If there's anything about gen 6 I don't like, it's how fast Gamefreak is letting the power creep grow. Sure, they're giving old pokemon slight boosts with megas, but you're using the mega evolution and not the actual pokemon. I love pinsir, but people use mega pinsir in OU, not pinsir.

Pinsir is a good poke. Trusty, strong, good ability. Mega pinsir is a god. Nothing wants to take an aerilate return except maybe something like a fully defensive aggron or some stupid ♥♥♥♥.

Aggron, is trash. horrible typing and bad spedef. Mega aggron is decent. You don't see aggron comonly in UU, you see mega aggron.

Talonflame has an amazing ability. Pidgeot doesn't have one. Noctowl surely doesn't have one. Any other starting bird poke doesn't have one. Staraptor was good, really good, but it's not the most powerful priority attack in the game good.

Diggersby is strong. Raticate is not strong. The closest thing was E-Speed linoone, which almost never saw actual use in competitive because linoone sucks ♥♥♥♥.

Greninja has an amazing ability. Kecleon has the same ability, but it's slow and weak. Chesnaught has a decent typing and is imho very good (but I'm a sucker for grass types).

I mean, just looking at the amount of high tier 6th gen pokemon compared to other gens just makes it look like gamefreak was trying to make competitive pokes. Its silly how strong some things are which only appear in 6th gen. Sure togekiss and azumarill is now a thing that people have a reason to use, yet now we're seeing pseudo legends in UU.

600 bst pokes, in UU. Metagross and Hydreigon in UU. I couldn't believe it. At least because of defog we can use bisharp with rock polish and get a potential sweep going, but 6th gen really kicked up the craziness. I don't like it. Not one bit

IMO if you ignore Megas (which were intended to be equivalent to top class legendaries), I would argue that the power creep is significantly lower than in many previous generations. Sure they tried to make pretty much every Pokemon competitively viable but not that much has been exceedingly powerful.

Talonflame is a good Pokemon, but like many other new Pokemon it's been overhyped causing its usage (and therefore tier placement) to be inflated. It has a good ability and good offensive STABs but consider that fundamentally it has a 4x SR weakness and only 81 Attack. It's a very well balanced Pokemon with a lot of utility but is entirely stopped by a long list of perfectly viable Pokes (Tyranitar, Rotom W, Tyrantrum, Mega Ampharos, etc). Compare this to last gen where we had stuff like CB Terrakion or Kyurem B which had no counters.

While it's true that the metagame has gotten significantly more offensive this generation, I would argue that this is due to one or two significant Megas (Lucario I'm looking at you) and an increase in the number and variety of threats you have to cover defensively, rather than an increase in Power. I got pretty high on the XY ladder (2200 and this included all my dicking around with stupid teams) when it first started using not a single 6th gen Pokemon or fairy type.

Also, BST has nothing to do with power. Pokemon like Regirock and Articuno have been bottom tier Pokemon for as long as I can remember.
