    Is there no item clause on Pokemon Showdown?

    Edit: What the hell? Somehow my post is now above yours? o_O

    So I don't have Y yet (or a 3DS for that matter), so I've turned to using Pokemon Showdown until I can get mine. They have most of the new Pokemon up and running, including megas (though the sprites don't move like the others do).

    Been messing around with a team in OU. Here it is, if you guys wanna see it, maybe give a few pointers or something. It's a bit heavy on the Dragon-type, but they're my favorites and I've been doing fairly well competitively:


    1. Dragonite, with Muscle Band
    Ability: Multiscale
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
    Adamant Nature
    - Dragon Dance
    - Fire Punch
    - Waterfall
    - Outrage


    2. Garchomp, with Muscle Band
    Ability: Rough Skin
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
    Jolly Nature
    - Dragon Claw
    - Outrage
    - Dragon Rush
    - Stone Edge


    3. Hydreigon, with Wise Glasses
    Ability: Levitate
    EVs: 252 Spd / 252 SAtk / 4 SDef
    Timid Nature
    - Dark Pulse
    - Fire Blast
    - Surf
    - Focus Blast


    4. Metagross, with Leftovers
    Ability: Clear Body
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
    Adamant Nature
    - Meteor Mash
    - Zen Headbutt
    - Brick Break
    - Frustration


    5. Tyranitar, with Muscle Band
    Ability: Sand Stream
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
    Adamant Nature
    - Crunch
    - Stone Edge
    - Stealth Rock
    - Earthquake


    6. Venusaur, with Venusaurite
    Ability: Overgrow
    EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 HP / 4 SDef
    Modest Nature
    - Energy Ball
    - Giga Drain
    - Grass Knot
    - Growth

    Most of them are physical or special sweepers. Don't really feel the need to have any tanks or someone to do shit like Spikes and all that (don't like that playstyle). Was thinking of getting rid of a few moves (Tyranitar's Stealth Rock, few others). It seems to be a solid enough team from what it's been up against.

    And Mega Venusaur is just a complete tank. So much so, it's almost not even fair. Took a few Ice Beams straight to the face from a Vaporeon and was like, "Fuck you, Giga Drain." Definitely gonna be the one I mega evolve when I get Y.

    Nope. 3 of my team have a Muscle Band, so there isn't (at least in the OU class).

    There are a few things though. Garchomp can't have the Sand Veil ability (raises Evasion in a Sandstorm), etc. But no item clause so far as I know, but I just started.

    Why do you have 3 dragon type abilities on Garchomp and no Earthquake? Same with Venusaur. I'd replace Grass Knot with Sludge Bomb.

    Can you only get one Shiny Stone in the game? I can't decide between evolving my Roselia or my Floette.

    Doesn't choice scarf ice beam with a high SpAtt or stab oneshot 4/6 of your team?

    Do you think Pokemon feel any kind of ma/paternal attachment/longing to the eggs I hatch and then send instantly to the four corners of the globe?

    Nothing that a few minutes worth of yarnball catch and stuffing them full of cupcakes won't fix!

    You can farm shiny stones out of the secret super training levels. You obtain those levels by clearing regimens up to level 3 and then clearing any regimen with a fully EV trained Pokemon.

    nothing says animal cruelty more than forcing a gold fish and a giant floating water dragon to breed with each other 0o

    So, here's a hairsplitting question: If I give Eviolite to a MALE combee, does he still get the bonus from it? (Not saying that I'm going to, just something worth wondering about) because TECHNICALLY, he's at his final form...

I'm not sure why you'd want an Impish Pinsir to begin with though, I'd prefer an Adamant one over that personally, but no big deal.
    Naughty ups Attack and lowers Sp.Defense according to Bulbapedia. That's why Naughty. Since its defense and Sp.Defense are its lowes stats. Its Sp.Attack is quite high. However, I get what you are saying. Don't lower Sp.Defense if I can lower Sp.Attack.

    Still not sure on how to create a move set though. Darn smogon for not having a guide! Im also guessing pinsirs Sp.Attack is worth while? It is his absolute worst stat in mega form so I figured I would lower that and up his Defense since his base attack is already at 155.

    As far as I can tell, they still only have the B/W stuff up. Im unable to find anything concerning X & Y. So I guess the part I am confused on is where on smogon I find the info for X & Y
