Hey everyone. It's been a while since I've done anything on this page, so here it is.
Most teams follow a central Pokemon core, which are 2-3 Pokemon that work very well together.
So Serebiians, what cores have you used in X/Y OU?
To keep the thread looking tidy, it's best if you all post your cores like this:
Gengar @ Gengarite
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
- Shadow Ball
- Sludge Wave
- Focus Blast
Scizor @ Choice Band
EVs: 248 HP / 176 Atk / 80 SDef / 4 Spd
- Bullet Punch
Rotom-Wash @ Chesto Berry
EVs: 240 HP / 196 SDef / 72 Spd
- Volt Switch
- Hydro Pump
- Thunder Wave / Will-o-Wisp
This core's goal is to utilize Volt-Turn to lure in Pokemon to be trapped by MegaGengar. ScRotom has been a strong core since early B/W and is still strong in Gen VI since their respective typings resist each other's weakness. Because both pokemon are slower than the rest of the metagame, they can Volt Switch out and guarantee that Gengar get in unharmed. Gengar can proceed to MegaEvolve, trap the target, and potentially kill it. VoltTurn also helps Gengar by weakening the target before Gengar comes in and making Gengar's kills easier to obtain.
