    So I'm thinking of using Snorlax as my bruteforce/tank/sweeper, my pokemon Hulk if you will, and I would like some input as to what I should be breeding him for IV/Nature/Ability wise? Now I've never bred any pokemon for anything in any game, so please explain it to me slowly and with small words. Like you would to a child :D

    252 EV in attack, his defence is p high already, so put 200 in sp.def and 52 in regular defence. the remainder in HP or Speed? (I'd go with speed)

    adamant nature, holding leftovers. Thick Fat ability.
    move list:
    Return
    Pursuit
    earthquake
    I'd go with Fire Punch in the last slot, just because I've had a ton of snorlax's face up against my Ferrothron and they can't do shit to him.

    You could also have an annoying sleep talk set?
    earthquake
    return
    rest
    sleeptalk

    If you need help sorting out EV's, let me know and i can plan it out for you no problem.

    So I managed to get a Japanese Rotom over Wonder Trade. Rotom breeds with ditto, too, doesn't it?

    I think that's the only pokemon it can breed with.

    Isn't it his spacial defence that's high, not his physical? Also I don't think it can learn fire punch yet.

    That explains why my Japanese Rotom was a Level 1 when it Arrived.
    Sometimes, I can't decide whether Breeding Castoffs are good or bad, Lol.

    Been breeding quad-perfect Gibles (non-31s in Atk and SpAtk) using Everstone and Destiny Knot.
    Why can't I just get ONE that has that 31 in Atk? Just. One.

    Suppose I'll move on to Marvel Scale Dratinis afterwards.

    Should I worry about IVs or just work with what I get?

    you're right sorry, that was a move tutor move, right? Also I had a look and you're right again, my mistake. His sp.def is through the roof. I'd still go with the higher special defence at the min though, use him to take out special greninjas etc. You don't want Snorlax going against any kind of physical fighting poke. You only have to worry about aura sphere this way.

    I just usually go with what I get, but this gens a lot easy. Destiny knot passes down 5 IV's to poke now, so all you really need is a good ditto!

    Wouldn't waste even 1 speed EV on Snorlax...he's so slow, the +1 overal speed those EVs would give him overall don't even matter when the only things he overuns are Steelix and Shuckle :p 

    Try to see if you can find belly drum for Snorlax or even curse. Or even bulk up [you get than in a TM nowadays].

    As for Lucario and Snorlax, well, everything has it's counter. Lucario is pretty handy overal but he's an acquired taste if yours keeps fainting all the time due to having such crappy defenses. If it wasn't for the steel typing I don't think anybody would give much notice to Lucario.

    For anyone with White or White 2, can you trade me a Rufflet, Throh, and/or a Solosis? I'm almost done my dex in Black 2 and they're the only ones I can't get.

    Last I checked no one had traded for my Charmander with Flare Blitz egg move. All I want is a Haunter. :(

    If it wasn't before, it has been now.
    THE SYSTEM WORKS!
    I managed to Get an abomasnow off GTS by offering a Level 31 Haunter holding an Everstone. How much you wanna bet the other person thought that thing was gonna evolve?
