Local Tournament Team
Hey guys, I'm a pretty experienced Pokémon player (13 years under my belt,) but I'm relatively new to competitive battling. I've used this online plenty to mostly success, but I want to see if there's any improvements I could be missing.
Cofagrigus @ Chesto Berry
Bold Nature Mummy
252 HP/126 Def/126 SpA
HP Fighting/Dark Pulse
Cofagrigus is one of my favorites of fifth gen, and is an excellent wall with some attacking potential. Not many people prepare for this, so it's excellent for me as a lead or a late-game sweeper.
Tangrowth @ Leftovers
Relaxed Nature Regenerator
252 HP/252 Atk/4 Def
Tangrowth is another that opponents seem to not prepare for in an OU environment. He is the definition of a bulky attacker, with great attacking stats and 100/125/55 Defenses. He's certainly no special wall, but he works fantastic as a core half with Rotom-W.
Rotom Wash Forme @ Leftovers
Modest Nature Levitate
248 HP/28 SpA/232 SpD
Rotom-W has the bulk for a special wall, which I usually lack. I also love his dual STAB in Volt/Pump. His low HP can be covered by a SpD EV spread and WoW.
Scrafty @ Leftovers
Adamant Nature Moxie
252 HP/252 Atk/4 SpD
Hi Jump Kick
Breeding this one was a b****, but was absolutely worth all the training, as Scrafty almost always pulls a clutch win for me when it's needed. He has the defensive bulk to take several hits and can stay longer with Leftovers. He also has perfect neutral coverage.
Darmanitan @ Choice Scarf
Adamant Nature Sheer Force
252 HP/252 Atk/4 Spe
This thing is a glass cannon, but god, can it sweep. STAB Force-boosted Flare Blitz off Darm's massive base Attack destroys almost everything in one hit. It may not be able to take a hit, but why would it need to when it OHKOs anything without a 4x Resistance.
Ditto @ Choice Scarf
Hardy Nature Imposter
A clutch revenge killer. I love this thing to death.
I've been thinking of running Wobb (my favorite Poke) or Vaporeon (for Acid Armor/Baton Pass/Wish/Scald fun).
Tell me what you think! Every decision here is justified.
Scizor Gengar Eelektross Metagross Wobbuffet Starmie
I do love me some Spiritomb and Sudowoodo, though.
