Victini @ Choice Scarf
Victory Star, Jolly
This is the guy who really makes the team. He has the the only assistable move on the whole team, V-Create, which packs a nice 405 base power with STAB and sun. And with the choice scarf, he can still outspeed things after two speed drops. Trick is just in case there's something I need to stop from setting up or take out later, like Gyarados or Vaporeon.
Ninetales @ Sitrus Berry
Ninetales is really only here for setting up sun. If anyone on the other team can set up weather, I'll obviously switch her out. Covet is the only non-assistable attacking move she can learn, but can occasionally be useful for stealing opponent's items. Sitrus berry keeps her alive longer and makes Covet possible. Probably my least useful team member but my oh my is it great for handling Vaporeon. Surf under sun only does about 30% to it so I can just covet until my Sitrus Berry is gone and then steal its Leftovers.
Liepard @ Choice Band
Liepard is awesome because, with prankster, the speed drops from V-Create don't do anything. If I predict that the opponent is going to start off with a hazard lead or something like that I send Liepard out to trick them a Choice Band. Or, if they don't, man
that Band is useful. Liepard even outspeeds priority users like Scizor so that's nice.
Infernape @ Choice Band
- Focus Punch
Even better attack than Liepard. I can get nice short sweeps going here sometimes. But I still have to switch out soon after the speed drop. And, although I've never had to use it before, this guy could probably be a nice Heatran counter, as long as they try to set up with something other than a substitute so I can get a Focus Punch in. Feint and Protect are 90% filler. I guess it's just for if I get my item knocked off or something. But neither are Assistable so that's fine.
Wobbuffet @ Leftovers
Shadow Tag, Careful
- Mirror Coat
- Destiny Bond
Yeah, Encore is Assistable so I can't use it :/ But either way, this guy is a GREAT counter to stuff like Gyarados that I've tricked a choice item on. That way, I can just counter/magic coat them to death without the threat of setup. Toxic is a bitc
h though. So I try to avoid that.
Ditto @ Choice Scarf
A huge asset to my team. No assistable moves, and is a PERFECT revenge sweeper. Especially for dragons. I've had people forfeit because I send in ditto after their +6 Haxorus 1-shots my Wobbufet. Ditto is absoltely essential for countering Chandelure, since he's immune to all my other pokemon (except possibly Wobbs). And he's not bad at getting Heatran, as long as Heatran doesn't have an air baloon and has Earth power -___-
