Gen 6 Assault Vest Pseudo Goodra
Virizion @ Assault Vest
EVs: 104 SDef / 152 HP / 252 Atk
- Sacred Sword
- Leaf Blade
- Stone Edge
Okay, so everyone's heard on Showdown what this guy can do. But, for those that don't know what he can do, here's some notable feats:
2HKO'ing Max Def Rotom-Wash if burnt after the first Leaf Blade
Surviving Togekiss' Air Slash and KOing with Stone Edge (after SR)*
2HKOing Max def Slowbro with SR
Surviving Specs Typhlosion's Eruption (with Typhlosion at full HP) and doing 79% with Stone Edge (AKA KO's with SR) although Specs Eruption at full HP can KO 25% of the time, mind you.
And many other things that probably could be bragged about.
*If I remember correctly, it outspeeds standard Togekiss, and it was around 70~%, so it may KO with SR
Notes about EVs:
You absolutely cannot use less attack or a different nature. Otherwise, it hits like a wet paper bag.
What this set will not work against:
Physical attackers that can hit SE
I don't claim that it will do an extreme amount of damage. I don't claim that it will tank everything for days. I do claim that it takes out standard Max Def Rotom, which is on every team. I claim that it will hurt fire types. I'll claim it takes out Tyranitar with ease. It might 2HKO a lot of threats. I will say though, that taking a 4x effective move and living with 40% is something only other Assault Vest users can boast of. Taking Specs Eruption from Typhlosion is something to actually write home about.
If using this guy, please core it with a Slowbro or Rotom-Wash and a Sylveon. I'll tell you right now that it will not disappoint you if you do that.
Anyway, although it's amazing, I will have to say that it probably shines better in the future UU. But it does have a niche in OU, and that niche is amazing.
