    I can't believe that I forgot about this set.

    Screeching Bug

    -Screech
    -X-Scissor
    -Toxic / Protect / Leaf Blade
    -Toxic / Protect / Leaf Blade
    Item Attached: Focus Sash / Leftovers / Eject Button
    Ability: Overcoat
    EVs and Nature: 252 HP / 128 Def / 128 SDef
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

    The biggest gimmick ever; maybe even more than Perish Song Absol, and that's saying alot. Screech halves your opponent's Defense, which can force switches, so pair that up with entry hazard support and you'll give the opponent a hard time.
    X-Scissor stops Leavanny from being Taunt bait.
    The final move is the regular "pick two out of three." Toxic is always a good move paired with Protect, but if you feel that one of the two are unneeded, then you always have Leaf Blade as an option for additional STAB.

    Focus Sash is there if you feel that Leavanny can't survive a hit. If you don't have that fear, however, Leftovers is always an option, as with every Pokémon. Eject Button is interesting, as it forces you to switch out, meaning after you switch, you can bring in a Pursuit user to OHKO the Screeched person.

    Just been thinking about this a little more as i do weekly now and thought of this once i realise it got me first(works best in a sun team:

    Ooh Me Me Pick Me!
    Ability:Chlorophyll (sun team) else: overcoat
    Item. focus sash
    Nature and ev's Jolly: max speed and attack 4 in hp
    Me first
    leaf blade
    x-scizzor
    camouflage/grass whistle

    Me First allows dragon slaying as with chlorophyll you outrun most dragons (as long as they dont flamethrower you your ok)
    Leaf blade and x-scizzor both supply stab and are strong
    camoflage changes your ridiculous typing in case of fire (or flying) and if you dont like it try to put them to sleep with grass whistle
    Moveset extrordanaire just ask if you want assistance

    In doubles an ultimate partner would be Slaking, Especially on a Sun Team!

    Set up sun (using Sunny Day or Ninetails)
    Bring out Slaking and Leavanny
    Use Entrainment on Slaking
    Sweep everything up with a speed boosted Slaking (without truant!)
    Use Reflect and Light Screen to boost Slakings defenses (if your still alive)

    Use a moveset such as

    Entrainment
    Reflect
    Light Screen
    Sunny Day / Leaf Blade

    EVs + Nature - Jolly Nature, Max speed, unless you are using Ninetails or setting up sun before hand in which case spread EV's Defensively. Leavanny is purely support here!
    Item. Light Clay, Occa Berry, Focus Sash. (occa berry could give weaker fire move users a shock when they fail to 1hko!)

    A Similar technique could also be used with Regigigas and Groudoun, but is far too risky for the Uber game really, with Rayqueza and Kyorgue etc.

    my name is not billy:

    "Groudoun"? "Rayqueza"? "Kyorgue"? Well, despite your naming problems, I like the set.

    PMSandStormSBBZ:

    Its not too gimmicky. Infact, if you put in Camouflage as an option, it could work better, 'cause Leavanny could survive a hit-or-two when Normal-type... Although... All those set-up turns...

    The Intersect:

    Try typing the numbers for EVs, ok? Also, Grass Whistle has low accuracy, and is pretty much useless on the set, anyway.

    Miscellanious Other Peoples:

    Sun-team-Chlorophyll-Entertainment is awesome. Exactly stating Darmaniphyll. And Chlorochomp. And Slak... Chlorophyll... Yeh. Not alot of names, but you get the picture. Entertaining takes on a frightening picture if you're in double battles and yer buddy's a Sweeper. Or just a fast attacker, in Slaking's case. In fact, anything can make use. You could put random stuff like Gyarados or even the likes of... Well, anything really. Aerodactyl would be scary. Just anything with a Speed-stat above 70 can sweep with it. Really. Use it.

    Okay, this is pretty gimmicky, but I believe it might work in Double Battle Ubers.

    Leavanny@Choice Scarf
    Ability:Chlorophyll
    Nature:Jolly
    IVs and EVs: Maxed out Speed, Attack as good as you can get.
    Entrainment
    Sunny Day
    Leaf Blade
    X-Scissor

    Pair it with an LO'ed Groudon and watch the fun begin! Leavanny is pretty dang fast with a Choice Scarf, use Entrainment on Groudon who has made everything sunny, switch out Leavanny (if it survives) for Zekrom (probably ballooned), and proceed to sweep. Sunny Day if Leavanny gets a chance to switch in and the weather is disrupted, Leaf Blade for a last stand against a weakened Kyorge, and X-Scissor for the nice coverage against Psychic types.

    Isn't it Entrainment, not Entertainment?

    You failed to notice that I was the one who originally came up with that, like 3 or 4 posts before you did ^^.

    Anyway, more Double/Triple options: As with any baton passing pokemon, Follow me support is most appreciated to help your Swadloon get off as many boosts as possible (or even leavanny, if you want to baton pass A hone claws boost to a skill link Cincinno, or swords dance boost and Agility to anything: you get the idea). However, this is the same with every baton passer.

    Also, a gimmicky set that can also only work with Follow me supprot, but once pulled off. . .

    Haha you can't hit me!
    Jolly/Timid
    Item: ?
    Double Team
    Baton Pass/Struggle bug/Bug Bite (swadloon only)/Bug Buzz/X scissor (leavanny only)/ Leaf blade (leavanny only)
    Struggle bug/Bug Bite (swadloon only)/Bug buzz/X scissor (leavanny only)/ Leaf blade (Leavanny only)
    Wild card
    EV's: Leavanny: 252 speed, rest optional (you decide where you need to put them)
    Swadloon: 252 hp, rest ev's in def and/or spec def as you see fit.

    Now here is a set with some rather unusual options that swadloon or Leavanny wouldn't normally see. With some follow me support, you can get some double teams going. After many double teams are used (potenially maximising your defense: the ultimate goal) and you'll be a real pain to hit. This set should be used with Leavanny for the maximum effect (swadloon doesn't mind taking hits as much as leavanny does).

    As for the optional moves, you may decide you want to baton pass your Double team boost to a pokemon who has huge potential to sweep (works better if you're using swadloon). If you're using Leavanny, you could still run baton pass, but you have some attacking options as well. Moveslot no.3 is t just stop you from being taunt bait.

    The last moveslot just uses "wild card". I'm basically saying anything of use could go here: any extra stat boosting move (if you're baton passing, Hone claws and double team make for an interesting, ironic but effective duo of boosts to pass on).

    As Serebii would say, for this last moveslot. . .

    Go nuts!

    Slaking CANNOT gain Chlorophyll while it has Truant. You need to make it lose truant via letting it hit a Cofagrigus first. That's the big problem. Don't forget.

    @gyarados151: Double Team is banned in competitive play. And ANYONE can pull that off anyway.

    Huh, interesting Pokemon. One that i would like on my team. OK, here is my set.

    Raining Sunshine

    Chlorophyll @ Heat rock

    Swords Dance
    X Scissor
    Leaf Blade
    Sunny Day
    4 Speed 4 attack

    Swords dance for attack boost.
    X Scissor and Leaf Blade for STAB and the boost from swords dance.
    Sunny day for speed from Chlorophyll.
    Heat rock to make Sunny day last longer, which heightens the boost from Chlorophyll.

    The EVs for boost of its already good speed and attack.

    Partners:
    Any water type to switch out against fire types.

    Counters:
    Any one with solar beam and electrics to take down the water types And ABSOLUTE FIRE!

    With Raining sunshine any Leavanny can be a speed demon.

    I haven't really pitched in for any of these in a while. I'll throw out a couple of sets for laughs.

    Leavanny@Life Orb
    Modest
    Chlorophyll
    EVs: 252 SpA, 252 Spe, 4 HP
    Moves:
    -Calm Mind
    -Energy Ball/Grass Knot
    -Bug Buzz
    -HP Fire

    Leavanny doesn't have the most fearsome Special Attack in the world, but after a Calm Mind or two it can be fixed. Energy Ball and Bug Buzz form the special core, Leavanny's STABs. I remember that back in 4th Gen, Grass Knot tended to do more damage overall to OU Pokemon than Energy Ball, but I can't remember if that's true in 5th Gen. Would be worth it if it was. HP Fire mainly fixes the coverage. Chlorophyll is very important, as without it Leavanny would be completely inferior to...well, a lot of stuff. Modest is necessary for that extra bit of power, since a Base 70 Special Attack isn't scaring anyone anytime soon. Same with Life Orb.

    Leavanny@Life Orb
    Adamant
    Chlorophyll
    EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP
    Moves:
    -Swords Dance
    -Leaf Blade
    -X-Scissor
    -Return/Shadow Claw

    Swords Dance Leavanny is definitely more capable of doing damage than its Calm Mind counterpart. Twice as much of a power boost, plus a decent Base 103 Attack stat makes this an interesting option. After Swords Dance, you'll be at +2 Attack and Speed (provided you're in Sun), after which you can go to work. Leaf Blade and X-Scissor are the finest physical STAB options that Leavanny has to offer. Return helps with a little extra neutral coverage, plus it has some decent power. Shadow Claw is weaker, but it also offers neutral coverage and a little super-effective coverage as well. Adamant and Life Orb for more power.

    Leavanny@Choice Specs|Choice Band
    Modest|Adamant
    Chlorophyll
    EVs: 252 SpA|252 Atk, 252 Spe, 4 HP
    Moves:
    Leaf Storm|Leaf Blade
    Bug Buzz|X-Scizzor
    HP Fire|Return
    Air Slash|Shadow Claw

    I combined these just to save space. Yeah, probably not very viable, but there's just something fun about running around with a Choiced Bug with double speed in Sun. On the physical set, you've pretty much got all the physical options I mentioned on the SD set, all of Leavanny's physical options to be honest. On the special side, I've chosen Leaf Storm over Energy Ball/Grass Knot because...let's be honest...you're going to need as much raw power as possible. Air Slash is Leavanny's last good special option, and it can be annoying with its flinching ability. It can also put the hurt on some Fighting types, which is nice. More of a gimmick than anything, but it's fun.

    I can only see one real use for Leavanny right now, and even though I love bug-Pokemon I have to say it.

    Use her as easy-to-kill Attack EV fodder in the secret base when the RSE remakes come out. That is all.

    so you must hit hard while you can thats what this set allows you to do.
    Hit Me With Your Best Shot
    Nature Adamant/Jolly
    Item Miricale seed/ Silver Powder
    Abilitity Swarm/overcoat
    Substitute
    Swords Dance
    Leaf blade
    X-scizzor
    Ev's maxed out attack in speed for both natures and 4 in hp

    Use this power wisely
    Did you just SERIOUSLY suggest Miracle Seed and SilverPowder?! Excuse me while I go bash my head in with a hammer.

    Well, let's see.

    Baton Leavanny

    Baton Pass
    Agility
    Swords Dance
    Leaf Blade

    If you could learn more than four moves, this could possibly set up Leavanny as a good option. As it is, Baton Pass is so you can use Agility and Swords Dance as a set-up for another party Pokemon. Leaf Blade is so that you're not using struggle if you get taunted.
    I'm back. And ready for more battling.

    I havn't posted in a while. Eh.

    I'll try out this set I've been thinking about for a while:

    Multitask
    Ability: Chlorophyll/Overcoat
    Nature: Jolly
    Item: Light Clay
    EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
    -Reflect
    -Light Screen
    -Me First/X-Scissor/Leaf Blade
    -Me First/X-Scissor/Leaf Blade

    A Dual-Screen Support role, with the added fighting availability. First off, Chlorophyll if you're running a Sun team, Overcoat if you're not. Reflect and Light Screen are the obvious parts. Me First is actually usable what with Leavanny's good speed and a boosting nature. Light Clay for Dual Screens. X-Scissor and Leaf Blade are the given STABs that are normal on pretty much every set.

    Besides that, their's not much else I need to say.


    Mwahaha! R4GE Zibdas! I have Claimed Probopass!

    Gimmick set again. Yay.

    Confusing Bugger

    -Swagger
    -Reflect
    -Toxic / Camouflage / Leaf Blade / X-Scissor
    -Protect / Leaf Blade / X-Scissor / Return / Light Screen
    Item Attached: Leftovers / Light Clay / Eject Button
    Ability: Overcoat
    EVs and Natures: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
    Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

    Swagger, the crux of this gimmick, confuses, but raises the opponent’s Attack stat by two stages. Because of that, Reflect has been included to help deal with physical attacks.
    Toxic can be used to slowly wear down the opponent over a period of time. Between that and possibly confusion damage, you can wear them down. Protect, as always, pairs nicely with Toxic, and can possibly block against an unlucky strike from confusion. If one feels that this pair is unnecessary, there’s always the option of having Camouflage to turn Leavanny’s bad typing to Normal with Return/Leaf Blade/X-Scissor or Light Screen. Light Screen always helps against special attackers, as Special Defense is Leavanny’s weak point. Of course, one may drop that luxury of helping absorbing Sp. Attack hits to prevent Leavanny from being Taunt bait.

    Leftovers is... zzz... Light Clay is there to boost Reflect and/or Light Screen to seven turns (in total), and Eject Button is there to probably help a sweeper to set up and bulldoze through the rest of the other person's team.

    Gimmick set. Don’t even think of sending this to OU, as the whole mass of sweepers there love the Swagger boost. Also, feel free to mix and match. You don’t need Toxic paired with Protect or Camouflage with Light Screen or an attacking move.

    If you were to use Swagger, then use Camouflage, then you would be pwned by any fighting attack but Focus Blast/Vacuum Wave.
    Who is next?

    Typhlosion is epic and has beaten the heck out of OUs!

    Leavanny's typing isn't crap. It'll get owned by Fire moves, but it packs useful resistances. Kind of. Since Flying moves are uncommon...

    Because it 4x resists Ground, Grass, 2x resists Fighting, Electric and Water, which are all fairly commonplace. That's why it can do Choice sets, set up easily, etcetcblahblahblah.
    Ignore, thanks.

    Yes, I can see your point, as physical Toxicroak and other Fighting types can get an attacking boost, but I'm saying that Camouflage can get rid of Leavanny's undesirable typing and changing it to Normal. The resistances Leavanny currently have are still good, just not good enough, and Normal types don't really fall prey to any attack except Fighting types. And yes, Reflect can 'sort of' solve that problem, but not completely, I'll give you that. But if you have an idea for my new set, then by all means tell me.

    And like I said, it's a gimmick, so it may not be the number 1 option for a Leavanny. But who knows, it may not only be good on paper but on the battlefield too.

    Most of Leavanny's sets are gimmicks anyway, since Serebii said "Go nuts."

    The non-gimmicks are the Grasswhistle Hone Claws set, the standard sweeper sets, and the Choice sets.

    Are you sure??? I'm pretty sure skill swap and worry seed work on it, so why wouldn't entrainment?
