Hydreigon (M) @ Life Orb
< Hydreigon sez " Hi "
EVs: 196 Atk / 60 SAtk / 252 Spd
Naive Nature (+Spd, -SDef)
- Dark Pulse
- Draco Meteor
- Work Up
A mixed Hydreigon I thought of earlier today making use of the new BW2 move tutor teaching Superpower.
His attacking stats are near equal, with the special attack peeking just a bit over the physical attack. 208 / 50 makes them equal.
Life orb is for boosted power. While something like Lum berry can be nice, he needs the extra attacking strength when he's splitting up his attacking stats.
Max speed so he can actually out speed stuff. Can't exactly scarf something with Work up.
Dark pulse is your STAB that won't screw with your stats. 80 BP is pretty nice with STAB leading to a 120 BP attack. After 1 Work up this thing is at 602 special attack, so a simple STAB move that hits hard enough and doesn't worry with other jazz is nice.
Superpower is physical and coverage. Fighting + Dark covers so much stuff. After using this once you're at +0 attack, so you can technically use it again if you must.
Draco Meteor is your other STAB, only this one drops stats as well. 1 use is likely, although a second use is possible. You're probably going to be switching this thing in and out a lot anyway, so it's not too big of a deal. High BP is super nice.
Work up generally works for stat boosts on both attacking stats.
Now, the biggest thing you should remember when using this set..
STAY AWAY FROM SCIZOR!!!!!! -- Please... you'll get your Hydreigon fainted if you don't.
Scizor counters this set in every way possible, BUT Hydreigon's ability to learn Flamethrower will normally scare Scizor off.
