@alanm26v5: If Goodra is going to be your third guy with Mawile and Chesnaught then I wouldn't put Sludge Bomb on it. That might save it from a Fairy but you shouldn't face one with Goodra anyway when you have Mawile. Rest would be better on a Hydration Goodra on a Rain Dance themed party. Just go all attacks on it if your main goal is to beat the Battle Maison. You can check for type coverage here. Chesnaught and Mawile are both weak to fire so maybe put Muddy Water on Goodra. I would go with Dragon Pulse, Muddy Water, Flame Thrower, Thunderbolt.
Rockstar Recovery was my favorite energy drink. I would have that come out of my tap instead of water. But they axed it in Germany for whatever reason and introduced Rockstar Xdurance Blueberry and it's good. Not as good as Recovery but I like it. It's not too sweet and syrupy and I could drink like three or four cans in a row. It still gives me that teeth gnashy feeling. But I need to dial down on my energy drink consumption. It's messing with my Hashimoto's.
Vinny; I come for the story; I stay because this thing here doesn't say 100%.
I can get through the Battle Maison no problem but I'm pretty bad against other people so this might be bad advice.
What natures are your Pokemon? They will increase one stat and decrease another by 10%. When you look at your Pokemon's summary a red colored stat means it's boosted, blue means it's reduced.
An unreliable but fast and easy way to decide which EVs to train is to look at the stats. Train the higher Attack stat. Give slow Pokemon more HP, make faster Pokemon even faster.
My Mega Mawile has Swords Dance instead of Iron Defense and Sucker Punch, which is a priority move (moves first regardless of speed) that only works if the other Pokemon attacks. If I know the other Pokemon can't hurt it, I use Sword Dance to buff its Attack stat then use a move that's appropriate. With Sucker Punch you have to predict correctly otherwise you're giving your opponent a free turn. It's my favorite move on the set. A lot of fast Pokemon are super frail and Mega Mawile's Attack is so high, it will just kill most things in one hit even if it's not effective, especially after a Swords Dance or two. I EV trained for Attack and HP with an Adamant Nature.
I'm a little disappointed in Aurorus. It is pretty bulky but it has terrible typing. Everything from an Earthquake to a Mach Punch will kill it even if it's trained in HP. Stone Edge is a Physical Attack, too. The best Special Rock it gets is Ancient Power. It's pretty weak. But it's the same power as Thunderbolt after type bonus. Train for Special Attack and HP.
Put Psychic or Psyshock instead of Confusion on your Golduck. The 10% chance to confuse the target isn't worth it. Special Attack and Speed or HP.
You should get rid of that Aerial Ace on Vivillon. You won't make a dent in anything. It's a Physical Attack and Vivillon can't deal with that.
Pyroar is a Special Attacker. You should change Strength and Fire Fang to Hyper Voice and Flamethrower/Fire Blast/Overheat. EVs in Speed and Special Attack.
Chesnaught isn't fast enough to make good use of Needle Arm's flinching effect. Seed Bomb or Wood Hammer would be better. I don't think you need Bulk Up and Power-Up Punch on one set. It learns Sword Dance which is pretty much the best move to throw on anything. Spiky Shield doesn't do you much good if you don't poison or Leech Seed your target first. Otherwise you're just biding time. You have several options here. Either you go all offensive with Wood Hammer/Seed Bomb, Hammer Arm/Low Sweep, Earthquake/Stone Edge, Swords Dance/Bulk Up. Or you go a bit more passive with Leech Seed and/or Toxic, Spiky Shield, some attacks, with Leftovers. EVs in HP and Attack on both sets.
If I had to pick a team of three out of those six, I would go with Mawile, Aurorus and Chesnaught. But they are all bulky and slow, so maybe Pyroar instead of Aurorus. Try to not use the plates. Boosting just one attack type might end up being a waste of an item slot. Bulky Pokemon love those Leftovers. Life Orb is good but you would have to spend some of those BPs you are trying to save up for those evo items. Expert Belt, Wise Glasses, Quick Claw, Shell Bell, Big Root are all items you should already have.
I still don't understand it, to be honest. Even after reading some guides. Like how do I tell when a pokemon has good IV's after they hatch, much less multiple "perfect IV's." Using Destiny bond? Also how do I breed for hidden abilities? Is that also a game of chance? I'm just sticking to EV training the team I'm using throughout the game itself and then will worry about wrapping my head around this fantasy creature genetics sorcery.
There's a guy in Kiloude City (post-game) that'll tell you what your Pokemons best stats are. For example, if I show him a Ditto I caught at the friend safari with two perfect IVs he will say something like "those are some cool stats, bro, especially that attack and defense, yo, they can't be beat." If the last part is "they can't be beat" then those stats are perfect.
To breed for hidden abilities you need to have a Pokemon who already has it. If you have a male or female Pokemon it will have a 60% chance to pass it down when bred with a ditto. If you breed without a ditto then the female has to have the hidden ability.
@breadfan: this thread actually inspired me to try it for the first time. In the generations before this one I just bred a dozen and then picked the one with the best stats. It seems to be a little easier and faster than last gen. It's not that hard to understand, it's just very time consuming and involves a lot of trial and error. Took me three hours and at least seventy hatched eggs to get two perfect Zubats, male and female, to easily rebreed another one. Depending on how many perfect IVs the parents have you could shave off a lot of time there.
Are you sure you have drought on the mother? I think the inheritance chance for hidden abilities is 60% or something so I don't know what you're doing. If only the father has drought then he will only pass it down if bred with a ditto.
