Pokemon Diamond Discussion
Pick a pokemon of your choice from any generation and talk about what are the bad things about that pokemon and the good things about it. The user who has the best explanation will receive ? point/s. I will be looking for the detail and the quality of your explanation.
Pros: Good typing, (dragon psychic) large movepool, soul dew, (x1.5 sp atk + sp def.) good base stats, very consistent in competitive battles
Cons: it's on the Uber tier list, so Latios is banned from most competitive play, there's only one of it's kind in each game it appears, it can't breed, has a weak defense.
Side Note: Latios was my signature pokemon in competitive play. It won me the biggest tournament I competed in, and was the ultimate "stopper" poke for me; meaning it could change the tide of battle in an instant. He's a primarily a special sweeper, with the soul dew his special attack eclipses all others' special attack (394 * 1.5 = 591) and his special defense with the soul dew is solid enough to take a hit and still be in the match. He has the ability to be a decent attack sweeper as well (with the use of dragon dance) but that moveset pales in comparison to the SD special sweep set.
Unrelated Note: Latios is always male.

Dialga has an awesome learned moveset and his special "exclusive" move (Roar of Time). He also has very high stats and can be EV trained to have Hyper stats. His strengths as a Steel/Dragon make him resistant to some powerful attacks.
He has legendary status so he is banned in many battles. He also has glaring weaknesses to Fire and Ground. He also has a weakness to his counterpart Palkia (Water/Dragon). He also has a downside with his weight and moves like Grass Knot can be OHKO's.
He is one of the coolest looking pokémon in the entire world. Many people (including me) chose Diamond over Pearl because Dialga LOOKED so cool. They then discovered that he was cool in other ways too. I reccomend EV'ing him in the areas of Sp.Atk, Atk, and HP. I also reccomend having the following Lv.100 moveset:
--Roar of Time
* Up to 400 new and updated trainers monthly
* Manage and update trainers through one app
* Request which games get new trainers
* Priority support with any problem
