Jolteon (Pizazz) w/ Volt Absorb
Life Orb and Modest (+SpAtk -Atk)
252 Spd / 252 Sp Atk / 4 HP
- Signal Beam
- HP Grass / HP Fighting
- Volt Switch
I picked Jolteon because he only has one weakness and a high enough special, plus being super speedy. His ability Volt Absorb is what really does it for me, because I'd use him to replace my Gyardos when the inevitable electric attack comes forth. Only think I don't like is the common Dugtrio coming to Arena Trap me, hence why I'm considering Life Orb over Specs. Problem being I cannot decide if I want Fighting over Grass to deal with every teams Scizor quickly and efficiently, even if he does try a Bullet Punch, at least I resist it.
Weezing (Bong Rips) w/ Levitate
Black Sludge and Calm (+SpDef -Atk)
252 SpAtk / 252 SpDef / 4 Spd
- Pain Split
- HP Ice
This is my tank weezing which would take over for Jolteon if imposing Ground moves are coming. I chose him over any other Levitater because he also is only left with one weakness, Psychic. Will-O-Wisp aids my already great defence and the rest is for bulk. HP Ice is for those grounds I am switching into/Dragons and Flamethrower for Steels and general good coverage.
Spiritomb (Galactorb) w/Infiltrator
Leftovers / Wide Lens and Sassy (+SpDef -Spd)
252 SpDef / 126 Atk / 126 SpAtk
- Sucker Punch
- Hypnosis / Will-O-Wisp
- Shadow Ball
My starter and cover for Weezing, being immune to Psychic attacks. No weaknesses is awesome, 3 immunities is even better. I chose Infiltrator over Pressure to deal with Dual Screen Pyschics like that blasted Magic Bounce Espeon and helps my status moves in case of Safeguard (hah). Taunt would be used first to ware off any early Spikes or Stones, then status, etc. Then a switch to a powerful Pokemon so he can support Weezing later. Question: Should I stay with Leftovers or use Wide Lens to up chance of Hypnosis/Will-O-Wisp working since it's important to the set?
Gyarados (MyExWife) w/Moxie
Lum Berry and Jolly (+Spd -SpAtk)
252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
- Ice Fang / Dragon Dance
- Outrage / Dragon Dance
Fear her, for she is very powerfull. At this point I needed a solid sweeper so I went with the superstrong Moxie Gyarados. She's perfect after my lead Spiritomb if he's attacked already, dessimating the enemy and gaining an Atk boost. This is why I have Jolteon to suck up any electric attack from a faster Pokemon, retaliating with more speed. Lum Berry for extra excuse to switch in or Outrage support. I just hope he stays alive long enough. Also, move set could be tweaked. Any ideas for better coverage would be great.
Conkeldurr (Big Bully) w/ Guts
Toxic Orb and Adament (+Atk -SpAtk)
252 Atk / 160 HP / 96 SpDef
- Drain Punch
- Mach Punch
The mighty Conkeldurr. I changed him from Chandelure because I decided to go with Cloyster instead of a Bug/Steel so I did not need Flash Fire and it had too many weaknesses anyway. This Poke is much bulkier and ready to kill things like Terrakion which I need, and I can sub him for Spiritomb if I come across a Psychic I can't handle. And if he's dead, I've at least got Payback to try. This set keeps me safe from status and strong at the same time. I threw Facade in there because I have plenty of good Ice coverage already, and it's stronger and less predictable anyway. We're gonna kick some major butt.
Cloyster (UrMomsBox) w/ Skill Link
Kings Rock and Jolly (+Spd -SpAtk)
252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
- Icicle Spear
- Rock Blast
- Shell Smash
- Rapid Spin
I've always loved oysters and now I have even more reason to. I know I need to be careful of what I switch her in to, but if I can I will set up and shoot 'em down. Rapid Spin is there just because I need it and hopefully I can find a window to use it when I need to, but it's risky for sure, hence why I'm apprehensive, but I'm hoping for some good luck with King's Rock and my two attacks. I'm sure I could move the EVs around for better bulk, but I'm not sure where to start. Help?
Well, that's it! I really think I've got a heck of a team here. With a few tweaks, I hope to be battling strong soon! Thanks again, Serebiians.
