Indeed. I think that Houndoom could be good, but not on this team. There'd have to be more effort into making sure that sunny day keeps persisting and he can properly burn everything to death (or, oddly enough, use solar beam). For now, I think I'll go with Zoroark.

Heyo! I've been offline a while cause been playing the games and all. But I'm here to ask: does anyone have a spare Mareanie/toxapex with Regenerator for trade? I cannot seem to get one to spawn at all.
It's for breeding, so stats and nature don't matter, just female and HA.

I have one I can give you. When would be most convenient to trade?

EDIT: Actually, if anyone else is interested, I could send off a few more as well.  Bold nature, varying IVs, Haze egg move, and a Love Ball.

Anytime this weekend, but I will be offline starting 5pm Central US time Saturday until late that night, unsure of when I'll be home though.((Family.))
But yeah, any Fem HA Mareanie/Toxapex will do.

EDIT: Oh i don't seem to have your Friend code somehow...weird, I was sure i did. I can get you mine or it should be in the First post in the safari section...just a heads-up
EDIT2: added you. sorry for the mix-up

Thank you for initiating the trade. I'll admit that the interface feels a bit more obtuse than previous versions to me, so I was having some difficulty in figuring it out.  Hope you enjoy your new Pokemon. ^_^

And thank you! I have been trying for a female HA mareanie to catch for a long time, now that i have one i can begin work on the pokemon I promised a friend, and my own Toxapex.
And yeah, S/M/US/UM link trade system's UI is beyond awkward. Here's hoping future games are much better!

Is Weavile any good? Seems like it has speed and power going for it, but no idea whether there's something that does what it does but better or not.

Weavile is very good.

Basically a glass cannon like... 90% of all ice types. But will wreck shit up before dying.

Almost always uses Knock Off, Icicle Crash, Ice Shard, and Pursuit. He's one of those Pokemon that despite you knowing exactly what moves he will have, he's still so hard to play around. It's really difficult to switch out / switch in to Weavile and usually the answer to Weavile is to try and kill it despite taking a loss or two.

The way you use him properly is to save him for last, when the enemy has a bunch of low hp Pokemon. Then he comes in and clears the field. He's in the same tier as most top tier Pokemon, though in SM he like many, many others are being outclassed by the deluge of legendaries.

Can confirm, Weavile is an excellent pokemon, who only got better with age due to the existence of Fairies, despite its weakness to them. Weavile, amusingly enough, appreciates a Fairy type on its team, as they're able to soak up and threaten Fighting types that would otherwise horribly threaten Weavile's papery defenses. Still, Weavile is very vulnerable to priority; it is very fast, but something like bullet punch or mach punch from anything with semi-decent attack is going to be putting it on ice.

It does have a fairly limited moveset, but it's one of those ones that are perfectly suited for what it wants to do. It wants to hit hard with both of its STAB, it wants priority to finish off things faster than it, and the moveset umiman mentioned is perfect for that. Pursuit almost guarantees a KO on fragile psychic and ghost types that aren't carrying coverage to deal with Weavile or are outsped by it. Knock Off, with its major buffs, is practically required on a lot of pokemon, and Weavile can utilise it really well due to its high attack, high speed and Dark STAB.
Icicle Crash is a simple no frills, strong STAB attack. Ice Shard is quick attack.

You could also use late game sweeper to come in on paralysed or slept pokemon and set up with Swords Dance, or run Taunt to shut down enemy stall. But really, Weavile does best as a very threatening attacker, who is usually going to force at least a trade or two.
