Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What are some good choice users in RU?

1 vote

A 1.5 boost? Hell yeah. If you happen to know or use any Pokemon in RU effectively, feel free to answer with the set and a short description to why it is a successful choice user. Note that Pokemon in NU can function perfectly well in RU such as the example below.

enter image description here
Scolipede (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Swarm
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Earthquake
- Megahorn
- Rock Slide
- Pursuit

If possible, it would be preferred if gifs are not used to stop the page from lagging.

Still not such a good reason..
wow more of these xD JCM you do the NU one K?
Oh and if answers don't pick up i will answer sometime
I edited the question so only relevant information was included. I also added and image and changed the set slightly. Superpower can be nice but a choice user doesn't tend to enjoy the attack drop plus it hits nothing notable in the tier that it should be dealing with. I guess it hits Munchlax and Ferroseed but they would not tend to stay in anyway expecting yourself to set up. Pursuit offers the ability to trap Pokemon and is your more reliable option I would say. I also edited the ability to Swarm because Poison Touch is rubbish and I removed the "Shiny: Yes" and nickname as people usually prefer not to import Pokemon with given names.
I think that covers the edit. :)
Ok :) Did I have Poison Touch there?? Whoops. Thx.
Me like Shiny better :3

Cinccino @ Choice Band/ Scarf
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Adamant/ Jolly
- Bullet Seed
- Rock Blast
- Tail Slap
- U-Turn

Still OP'ed for RU, imo, but there you go. You're gonna need a really fast (but frail) sweeper or two in any tier. Life Orb might better for Cinccino, since choiced means it'll be predictable.

Typhlosion @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Blaze
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Modest
- Eruption
- HP Grass
- Fire Blast/ Flamethrower
- Focus Blast

Flamethrower for higher accuracy or Fire Blast for more power. Your choice.

Rotom-Mow/ Rotom @ Choice Scarf
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Modest/ Timid
- Volt Switch
- Will-O-Wisp
- Trick
- Leaf Storm/ Shadow Ball

Rotom-Mow doesn't see enough usage. Unique typing, x1/4 Electric resistance and an ability that grants it an immunity. Rotom (normal) will provide some good immunities if your team's lacking a Ghost type.

Galvantula @ Choice Specs
Ability: Compoundeyes
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
- Volt Switch
- Thunder
- Bug Buzz
- Giga Drain/ HP Ground

Compoundeyes Galvantula is scary. At a base speed of 108, it outspeeds most of the tier. Stealth Rock weakness, however, means it needs some rapid spin or Wish support in order to prolong its lifespan.

Aerodactyl @ Choice Band
enter image description here
Trait: Pressure
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Jolly Nature
- Iron Head
- Stone Edge
- Crunch
- Earthquake

To busy for description right now. I'll put in more pokes later too.


However because he's impossible not to notice,
Electivire @ Choice Scarf
enter image description here
Trait: Motor Drive/Vital Spirit: Motor Drive for coverage depending on rest of team, Vital Spirit if electric coverage not needed
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Adamant Nature
- Wild Charge
- Earthquake
- Ice Punch
- Cross Chop

Hit like a truck with a nitro boost. Thunder Punch if you don't like the recoil from Wild Charge.


I have two physical attacker, let's go for a Special attacker,

Sceptile @ Choice Specs
enter image description here
Trait: Overgrow
EVs: 252 SAtk / 252 Spd / 4 HP
Timid Nature
- Dragon Pulse
- Hidden Power Fire
- Focus Blast
- Giga Drain

Beautiful SAtk that makes me cry. Set provides perfect coverage. Giga Drain is a gift from Arceus providing HP recovery.


One more because I have the time,

Sigilyph @ Choice Scarf
enter image description here
Trait: Wonder Skin (sounds awesome) / Tinted Lens / Magic Guard (If no Spinner)
EVs: 252 SAtk / 220 Spd / 36 SDef
Modest Nature
- Air Slash
- Energy Ball
- Charge Beam
- Psyshock

Set provides perfect coverage UU and below. Charge Beam has 50% chance to raise SAtk, along with that Scarf and SAtk stat, you can't go wrong.

Lolz, Aerodactyl in a rock.
Ahh, the Electivire Motor-Drive switch-in on an Electric Strategy. Gotta love it.
Could a Band perhaps work as well?
Yeah Band would probably work better if you use the Motor Drive switch strategy
Wonderful Sceptile and Sigilyph. :)
