BW2 RU/NU is one of the lesser used tiers in competitive battling; it's banished into the shadows by the more popular tiers, namely OU, UU and Ubers. Without extremely significant threats like Terrakion in OU, originality comes into play more often than less in RU and NU. Strategies that are nonexistent in OU find their way into RU/NU; Trick Room, Gravity, and Hail to name a few.
This thread is for players (like me) who play RU or NU to discuss strategies and competitive aspects about these tiers, and also to show off pokemon that have potential to be a threat in RU and NU.
EVS: 252 HP; 126 SpDef; 126 Def
Behold the troll pokemon, Shuckle. I really cant believe its non-existant even in NU with those massive defensive stats (besides its HP which really sucks). Knock Off is to get rid of items that other pokemon are holding; removing a Choice Scarf/Band/Specs sometimes completely changes the pokemon around. Toxic + Protect is Shuckle's most reliable way of damage, allowing him to stall out many pokemon. ChestoRest is for instant recovery in case something manages to bring you down in HP.
This pokemon should be used more due to its monstrous defenses, tanking hits that would destroy other walls.
