Best answer

Ninjask @ Focus Sash
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 Atk, 4 Def, 252 Spd
Jolly Nature

  • Baton Pass
  • Protect
  • Swords Dance
  • X-Scissor

The above set works well as a Baton Passing lead and despite being in NU it is one of the most effective Baton Passers there is. Set up a Swords Dance, Protect to get your Speed even higher, and then Baton Pass out to a physical sweeper.


Gliscor @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 252 HP, 44 Def, 208 Spd
Impish Nature

  • Baton Pass
  • Earthquake
  • Substitute
  • Swords Dance/Agility

Pretty straight forward BP Gliscor, not much explanation needed.


Smeargle @ Focus Sash
Trait: Own Tempo
EVs: 252 HP, 4 Def, 252 Spd
Timid Nature

  • Baton Pass
  • Shell Smash
  • Spore
  • Taunt

Put the opponent to sleep and ShashPass to a sweeper of your choice.


Gorebyss @ Focus Sash
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 4 HP, 252 SAtk, 252 Spd
Timid Nature

  • Baton Pass
  • Ice Beam
  • Shell Smash
  • Surf

Also works well in Ubers, mind that this set is illegal on rain teams in OU.


Mew @ Leftovers
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 252 HP, 4 Def, 252 Spd
Timid/Jolly Nature

  • Baton Pass
  • Nasty Plot/Swords Dance
  • Rock Polish
  • Psychic/Earthquake

I put Nasty Plot/Swords Dance but really you can use any boosting move there, depending on whether you want to Baton Pass Special or Physical boosts.

Lot of opportunity. I like that, Thanks!
You're welcome!
Yeah, I need a Baton Passer.  I plan to use Swords dance over and over (I might need a few Baton Passers) and then switch into a Banded Scizor and Bullet Punch everything that comes in my way!  Nothing can stop me! *evil laugh*
Such a good answer with 3 of my fav BPers. and no Up votes...
