Polygon-Z could really make good use of a BoltBeam combo so I kinda fell like it's a waste not to have that solid coverage on a team that has mainly all Normal type moves...just saying...I feel like coverage is the superior option here

I assume BoltBeam is Thunder Bolt and Ice Beam. Thunderbolt doesn't really offer that much coverage though only hitting water and flying types well, and since Ice Beam hits Flying, Dragon, Grass, and Ground, I decided that Focus Blast, which covers Dark, Rock, Steel, and Normal is a better choice.

I was just saying that a BoltBeam has near perfect coverage hitting almost every single Pokemon in the game for at least neutral damage not that it provided more SE coverage. I understand where you are coming from with Focus Blast and it does help with two of the main problems that Normal type Pokemon have but I feel that Dark Pulse is unnecessary seeing as the only way a Ghost can hit you for SE damage is with the highly unreliable Focus Blast. So to me BoltBeam beats Ghost coverage....but that's just my opinion

Actually, I'll probably replace Dark Pulse with either Energy Ball(if it learns it) or HP Grass(hits Ground/Rock/Water)
Maybe HP Water(hits Rock/Ground/Fire)

If you are going to do that then you would be better off keeping Dark Pulse >.< why put in a HP with base 70 when you can hit all the types mentioned other than Rock for greater damage with a STAB Tri Attack??

SE HP = 140 power
STAB + Adaptability Tri Attack = 160 power

And since you have Focus Blast to handle Rock types then why would you need a HP to cover Rock as well??? Doesn't make a lot of sense....


Edit: Also no it doesn't learn Energy Ball

Hmm... And what are your thoughts on Item choices? If I gave it a Normal Gem, and got rid of one attack for recycle, I could have extremely powerful STAB'ing Tri-Attack. Or just replace it with Uproar's base 90, or save Porygon-Z for last and destroy with Hyper Beam, although I wouldn't need recycle for that set up.

Well I'm not a big fan of the normal gem and recover thing you just mentioned....you could run several different items on it though...Specs, Scarf, Life Orb, Expert Belt.....

Omg I just realized something....Porygon-Z can't even learn Focus Blast >.< guess you are going to have to use HP Fighting to cover the Rock and Steel types that resist your STAB Tri Attack..

Lol XD I feel dumb now.....but yea HP Fighting or HP Ground is the only moves you have that can cover BOTH Rock and Steel so you will probably have to stick with that....I'd say go with Fighting thou because the only real use I can see in HP Ground is Heatran....but I've seen more Air Balloons than I can count with them so my vote is for Fighting...
