Dual types can produce dual weakness obviously Spiritomb is ultimate in that it cancels it's self out. Still there can be issues such as your Golem having x4 weakness ot Grass or even water which is common and Garydos having x4 weakness to Electric which is very common in a sweeper.

Does anyone know how effective the new Magnaton evoltuion is as a Skarmory counter? I know Magnaton was a somewhat popular counter previously but had few other uses has it been improved on now?

It has Magnet Pull to stop the thing escaping, and has a special attack stat on par with Alakazam, and high defenses.

Sounds like they beefed it up should help with over using Skarmory. I did considar looking to put it in my team but my team is set up fine for Skarmory threats. At least i hope it is done up well enough. With people mentioning there teams so far I been considaring maybe making it part of the tournament to announce teams or something that we we all level playing field and can provide suggestions possibly for even battling outside our liike corner of the net.

If they take out an electric type I'll just switch to Golem and kill it, if they take out a water i'll just switch to Magnezone and kill it. Yay!
No way dude, you're trolling me.

I suggest that participants all PM the organiser their teams, he posts them all before the start, and they're allowed to make one change from their posted team for any given match up.

Use Veekun, not Serebii. Serebii seriously needs to die. Both the site and the proprietor.

Taken from Gamefaqs

HM07 - Waterfall (Physical)

Type:         Water
PP:           15
Power:        80
Accuracy:     100
Information:  Outside of battle, this will allow you to climb waterfalls.
              Inside of battle, nothing special as far as added effects go.
Location:     Jasmine in Sunyshore City (On the small beach)
Suggestion:   Use on a Water Pokemon with a high attack (Gyarados is good).

It's the north part of the town just before you surf along route 223 your way towards Victory road. on the sand is a girl talk to her she will give you the HM saying you need it to reach Victory road. (You should be talking to everyone anyway.)

I need the dex entries for the johto legendaries (Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-oh) and Deoxys, but have no way to get them at all. Does anyone have em so I can trade for em to get the dex entries? I'll trade em right back afterwards, since I don't actually want them, just the entries.

Yay! Now I just need to buy a DS lite to replace my crappy broken DS.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.
