View Full Version : EVs?

4th April 2010, 12:52 AM
I was searching for a good team for the battle frontier, and I found one I think will do well. However... I am stuck on what to do with the EVs. (Also, the natures are stumping me too.) Any help would be great. :)

Here's the team:

Latios @ Shell Bell
Ability: Levitate
Calm Mind
Psychic/Dragon Claw

Weezing @ Leftovers
Ability: Levitate
Sludge Bomb
Flamethrower/Fire Blast

Zangoose @ Chesto Berry
Ability: Immunity
Swords Dance
Shadow Ball/Brick Break
Crush Claw

Latios @ Lum Berry
Modest Nature
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
- Calm Mind
- Thunderbolt
- Dragon Claw
- Recover

Put Thunderbolt on this set - the main use of Surf is to take out those Defense-oriented rock/ground types. But those are almost always KOed by Dragon Claw, because of their poor Sp. Defence. Safeguard is a good option, since Paralysis or Confusion can stop this guy dead in his tracks.

Weezing @ Leftovers
Impish Nature
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
- Will-o-wisp
- Explosion
- Sludge Bomb
- Pain Split / Rest

Wisp and Sludge Bomb things untill you get tired or low on HP. From there, you can decide to Explode and almost always take something with you, or use his relatively low HP stat to recover with Pain Split. Rest is also an option to get rid of status. Watch out for Steels - their high defence will wall you completely.

Zangoose @ Lum Berry
Adamant Nature
Ability: Immunity
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
- Swords Dance
- Brick Break
- Shadow Ball
- Return

Too frail to run ChestoRest. Swords Dance when you can, but be careful - almost any decent stab attack will kill him. You can also use Choice Band - but replace SD with Rock Slide for that.
