On the subject of regional exclusives I picked up a Corsola last week. I did a trip north to my home town and luckily one spawned 100m from my parents house.

I really would love a Heracross myself. My third favourite Bug-type Pokémon after Shedinja and Ninjask.

Anyway, pulled the trigger on a level 30 93% IV Chansey and got this;



My best Blissey by far!

Very close to mine. My 93% one is sitting at 2947.

I have had a good run the past 24hrs. I picked up 3 snorlax's and hatched a 95% Mareep.

Thanks, this the first time in a while that I've had good luck with the moveset.

I have to be very careful about using my Startdust because it takes a fair bit of effort to get it back up to useful levels. Even leveling up this Blissey from level 30 to level 35, took a fair chunk out of my low reserves.

Yours probably has better Attack IVs, because mine has 15 into the HP/stamina stat. I'm pretty sure Attack and Defense both have higher CP modifiers.

And yeah, I've noticed a couple of Relaxos on the Nearby/Sightings recently, but unfortunately, I'm usually at work

Mines at level 32. It's... OK. No better than say an Arcanine or Alakazam.

I think it's the highest cp fighting pokemon. Could be great against fatass blissies

Actually, Machamp is. Fighting pokemons and movesets received nice boosts with introduction of gen 2 pokemons.

I found just any heavy hitters are decent Blissey counters. For me, nothing beats a solid Dragonite or Tyranitar in taking them down with little effort. Gengar and Alakazam are absolutely awesome, but too fragile and can be defeated easily if you're not dodging most of the moves.

Even with limited gym experience, I can tell you that dragonite and tyranitar aren't good against dazzling gleam blissey. Having faced zen headbutt/dazzling gleam blissey in numerous occasions, I could easily see why that moveset is the blissey owners' favourite. Zen headbutt quickly wears down fighting pokemons (only weakness); dazzling gleam makes tanking with dragonite/tyranitar rather unpleasant.


Evolved and got my first tyranitar. Interestingly, the moveset is iron tail/crunch. Considering how long it took to acquire all those bloody candies, happy to have the best defense moveset.

Ah well I always dodge charge moves, don't want to get hit by a Hyper Beam, but when I see a Blissey gym, I just use my strongest and highest level hitters. I don't bother to min-max Gym Prestige, rather I just want to take them down with as little effort as possible.

Haven't been very active recently but have they messed with the prestige formula again?

Prestiging into a friendly gym using a 14xx Wigglytuff against a 13xx Kanga and a 14xx Espeon, (or whatever it's called), and was only getting around 470 prestige.

Even did it twice to make sure I didn't leave high CP mon in the team by mistake and it happened both times.

That should've been around 800-900 prestige each time I would've thought.

Not that I'm aware. To get around the 400-500 per Pokémon in prestige you need to have about 2/3 - 3/4 of the original Pokemon cp.
Having higher cp than the Kanga in that battle the absolute most you'd have got for that Pokémon is about 200 prestige.

To get 1000 prestige per Pokémon (the max) the prestigers you use need to be less than half the cp of what your attacking. Ie attacking that 13xx kanga with a 650 or less Pokémon

Weird then if it hasn't changed.

At equal CP you should also get exactly 500 prestige so I would've expected pretty close to 500 just for the Espeon, (think I was within 10CP), and like you said, around 3/4 of the 500 for the Kanga, (I was only around 100 CP higher).

And if nothing has changed then can only think that I messed up twice in a row when selecting the team. I've certainly done that before when picking mons for the last spots that were already selected.
