Yup, that's where it's at. I personally prefer the 30x Backstab approach- wearing no armor, if you fail you die, if you succeed you're rewarded with one dead opponent and a badass killcam. I love it on my Dunmer assassin. I'm wearing the Jester's Outfit (as I cannot be bothered to kill Cicero). I have the Blade of Woe and an Ebony Dagger- the Ebony Dagger fits better with Dunmer lore, so I might ditch the BoW. I have the DB sanctuary all nice and sorted, so it's a basically free house of sorts. Later in the game I might use the Nightingale Armor instead of my current attire (you'll get it in the next few Thieves Guild quests). Well, maybe the Hood, alongside the DB Gloves (for my 30x backstabs) and some Destruction robes (and Jester's boots).
Which set is better for TTar- Assault Vest or Leftovers? AV lets TTar tank hits easily from stuff like Latios (Draco Meteor from Specs Latios is a 4HKO with AV) whilst Leftovers give TTar recovery and Stealth Rock, as I think for a Specially bulky set, I might as well have it set up hazards.
Tyranitar @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
- Stealth Rock
- Stone Edge
- Fire Blast
I decided to run the Leftovers set, mainly because I can set up Stealth Rock with TTar that way. If I want to change the set to an Assault Vest one or maybe a DD set, then I will do so later. But for now Tyranitar starts off my team, acting as a counter for Pokemon like Talonflame, who is so far ravaging the metagame. The EVs let TTar check most Specially offensive Pokemon, especially with Sand up. Gengar and things like that will have to rely on a shaky Focus Blast in order to deal any proper damage. Stealth Rock
is the main entry hazard that's used, because it hits everything for some damage. Crunch
is one of the STABs- I never seem to use Pursuit that often, so I figured the power increase of Crunch would be beneficial. Stone Edge
is the secondary STAB, hitting things that resist Crunch painfully hard. Fire Blast
is an almost surprising move- most sets you see in Gen 6 so far don't use it, but Scizor/Forretress/Genesect/Aegislash/Bisharp don't like taking it to the face.
