    Huntail.

    Overview: Oh Huntail. Never seen much action back in the day. And now, one thing changed. Shell Smash. This makes Huntail an offencive monster. But even this blessing has its downfalls. It is outclassed by Cloyster in the higher tiers, but oh well. It is a great force in Underused.

    Abilities:
    Swift Swin: Oh Shell Smash and Swift Swim? And with Drizzle? Overused here I co- wait, Drizzle snd Swift Swim Teams are banned? Yeah. Not very appealing now...
    Hydration: Stops paralisys, stops burn, legal with Drizzle, very good ability...

    Movesets:

    HUNTAIL SMASH!
    Ability: Hydration
    Item:Life Orb
    -Shell Smash
    -Ice Fang
    -Waterfall
    -Crunch/Return
    252 Atk, 4 Def, 252 Spe

    Simple and lethal. Shell Smash makes your offences sky high, making you a dangerous sweeper. Waterfall is for STAB, and Ice Fang covers Grasses and Dragons. Crunch can help with coverage, but Return is the stronger mive. Either is fine...

    Think this guy likes Huntail.
    Anyway, nice sets, but I think Shell smash is what gives clamperl it's use in the LC. Toxic/Facade combo is a good idea, though. I like Facade. ^-^

    I'd have to disagree. Toxic will sap away at it's health, and it gets enough coverage in hidden power. If I were to use Clamperl, I'd use the deep sea tooth to give it a powerful special attack.

    Maybe I'd reconsider if it had gots and/or Facade was STAB, but otherwise, no.

    Countering Huntail and/or Gorebyss
    Low Base HP and Above-Average Sp.Def scream "hit me with Tbolt!" However, Swift Swim makes them a tad more vulnerable, changing the phrase to "Thunder? Ha! Just try it loser..."

    Swift Swim and bad Base Speed make you very vulnerable to Thunder. Your greatest asset is your biggest weakness. Hydration makes this worse for Gorebyss as it requires Rain for both Abilities, and after that, it gets even better - Galvantula can snipe you with Thunder at a whim without Rain and likely has better Speed if nothing at all is invested into it.

    Special Attacker Grass Types love their STAB, too. Sceptile, Swift Swim Ludicolo, Storm Drain Cradily, Serperior, and Simisage will greet you with Type and power advantages, then (potentially) continue with your team. Swift Swim Ludicolo even has an advantage once you set the Rain up. Better Base Speed means you'd better hope you have at least 1 Shell Smash and an active Swift Swim or else Energy Ball/Giga Drain is headed right for you...

    Of course, moves like Mach Punch and Sucker Punch will faint these things like crazy (the Def drops from SS will make sure these things will faint in one hit), so priority users should be removed before Gorebyss/Huntail even come out.

    Clamperl, Ruler of Everything in the Universe With His Devastatingly High Special Attack Even Before He Breaks His Shell.

    Clamperl @ DeepSeaTooth
    Rattled
    Timid
    252 SAtk/4 SDef/252 Spd
    - Shell Smash
    - Surf
    - Ice Beam
    - HP Grass


    This thing is insanely powerful after a Shell Smash. It easily 2HKOs the mighty Ferrothorn with Surf in Rain, proving how powerful this beast is. Blissey meets the exact same fate. Ice Beam destroys Dragonite, OHKOing every variant (even Parashuffle) through Multiscale. For Quagsires Unaware of Clamperl's might, and the similar Gastrodon, who enjoys his mighty waves, Hidden Power OHKOs both of them. After a Shell Smash, everything slower than Starmie is outsped, and much of it is OHKOd, the rest 2HKOd. With a Rattled boost from a passing non-Scizor U-turn, everything bar neutral-natured Choice Scarf base 100s are outsped.

    That is surprisingly scary if it can get those optimal conditions. Best hope to not get KO'd during setup, though, because it'd be time overly wasted. Impressive, but risky...

    Eh, a couple of name ideas because I'm bored.

    Huntail: I'd just use smug's "Attila the Huntail"

    Gorebyss: Maybe something like "Rated R for Blood and Gore-byss"

    Clamperl: "Shell-Shocked" *booed off the stage*

    They probably suck (except the Attila one, that one was pretty good), but it sounds funner than "Shell Smash Sweeper".
