I am doing two things. 1: Getting help planning a yanma 2: Testing if you can actualy do something without being abusive.

I am putting strict requirements onto this thread. And I will lay them all out in front of you.

1: NO DAMN SMOGON MOVESETS!
2: No insulting me for using a yanma
3: No suggesting another pokemon
4: No "LOL" or any laughing at me or my yanma's planned moves.

This is a FR yanma, make the moves for it possible to obtain pls.

Yanma@ Quick Claw
Trait: Speed Boost
Nature: Jolly
-Toxic
-Protect
-Substitute
-Reversal

Strategy: The yanma has to be fast, First I use toxic, and then they use a move. I will hopefully survive it, then I use protect, then substitute. If i am still ok when I get to low health I may have to use reversal to finish the foe

I have said my requirements, you can comment, but only comments I like. Please listen, I don't want an easy target or a smogon yanma. But I do not want any stuff I don't want to read.

That's really good ..only one thing. Why Quick Claw? After about 2-3 turns with anyone but Ninjask, you're guaranteed to hit first, you don't need it. I would go with Leftovers personally, because it gives you a longer time to live.

Why not use Silver Wind or Signal Beam over Toxic or Protect? Aerial Ace is also an option. And Liechi>Quick Claw IMO.

Yanma @ Leftovers/Lum Berry/No item
Jolly nature
Trait: Compoundeyes
-Hypnosis
-Signal Beam/Return/Shadow Ball/Aerial Ace/HP Flying
-Substitute/Thief
-Supersonic

Well the Reversal Yanma has been written down by Tazzler, and this is my only other set for it. I suck at NU, so don't count on it. Ubers and OU are a lot easier for me. I even nearly forgot that Yanma is Normal/Flying

So, its basically a 90% sleep and 85% confusion. Thief is a suicide move, for all that its worth

Illegal combo: Both moves cannot be obtained in the same moveset

this is mine, which is currently in training after an age breeeding for the right trait/nature

Yanma @ Leftovers
Jolly nature
Trait: Compoundeyes
-Hypnosis
-Screech
-Signal Beam
-Aerial Ace/Steel Wing/Shadow Ball

still undecided on the fourth slot though, and will use wing attack for STAB until i finish training and decide on the most useful type coverage. once you've hypnosis'd, screech before using the physical moves to finish it off.
