Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Which Pokemon is a good baton passer?

0 votes

I recently have a Smeargle with Spore, Barrier, Minimize, & Baton Pass it to Chansey. Is there any other Pokemon that is better than Smeargle? I have a Scizor with Iron Defense, Substitute, Roost, & Baton Pass, but a lot of people use Fire types in Wi-Fi, so it's not as good despite it's good Defense.

Yes. Ninjask has a specialty for baton passing as it's the best baton passer in the competitive battling.

Ninjask is considered the ULTIMATE Speed Baton Passer.
enter image description here
With access to Speed Boost, protect and Subsitute, it can almost 100% pass over Full speed.

Smeargle is definitely one.
enter image description here
With legal access to Belly Drum, Subsitute and Spore, it can pass over a full attack boost.

Blaziken is EPIC with Speed Boost, Swords Dance and Substitute.

It can be the same as Ninjask with S-Dance and Speed Boost.

Eveelutions are good Calm Mind Passers.
enter image description here enter image description here enter image description here
With Umbreon for Bulk, and HP, it can pull of C-mind and Jolteon same with the speed

I will add more later.
This has the best Baton Passers in the Competitive Grounds from Smogon itself.

In Wi-Fi battling Speed Boost Blaziken isn't available. It's only released in Japan.

So many pokes for that but I would choose Gorebyss because it resists Fire. Shell Smash w/ baton pass works well. Or for Defenses Iron Defense and Amnesia.

Hi, Oh No You Di'int! Driftblim is a good Baton Passer. Fire types do not affect it as much and normal types like Blissey are ineffective. The reason I list Blissey is because of the high HP stats. Ubernova (My Blissey) I use in alot of wifi battles.
