Pokemon @ Item
*Detailed description of the Pokemon's purpose to the team*
- Here are examples of what is and isn't acceptable:
Jirachi @ Shuca Berry
Ability: Serene Grace
EVs: 252 Atk / 80 SDef / 176 Spe
Nature: Jolly [+Spe, -SAtk]
- Iron Head
- Thunder Wave
- Fire Punch
- Stealth Rock
Thunderwave Jirachi, as a lead, has been successful for my team. The purpose of Jirachi is to get Stealth Rocks up, and once that's done, Pokemon such as Gyarados, Dragonite, or DD Babari Berry Tyranitar that switch in to try and set up on my lead are immediately rendered useless thanks to Thunderwave. My game plan is to set up stealth rocks first, and then Thunderwave to scout my opponent's team/cripple any sweeper hoping to use Jirachi as set up bait. With Choice Scarf being popular on lead sets, I decided to take advantage of its popularity, and it has paid off in every game I have been in.
Jirachi has been EVed to top Lucario in speed and use Fire Punch, or at the very least stop him completely with Thunderwave. Sometimes, getting a burn hax via Fire Punch helps, but as I can't KO Lucario with it, I tend to play it safe with T-Wave in most games. Either method is fine as Lucario remains crippled at the end of the day.Both sets are fine as far as formatting is concerned, but the second set will likely get your post deleted and/or you will get an infraction due to not enough information being given. The first set had a different kind of formatting, but it stuck to the basic template outlined in this post and had a long enough description, telling us what purpose it has on the team etc. That being said, even though you have to follow the template, you can customize how it looks, providing all information is viewable.What's not ok:
Inferape @ Life Orb
EVs: 4 Atk / 252 SAtk / 252 Spe
Standard lead, sets up rocks and breaks sash for my opponent.
