My Alomomola variant that I tried in my RU Team. Everything is pretty much standard except for one Move that makes it so devilish and hated.

Alomomola (M)@Leftovers
Trait: Regenerator/Healer
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
- Knock Off
- Wish
- Protect
- Toxic

Alomomola uses it's stellar Defensive stats and it's Ability to stall to utilize such a Moveset. Knock Off gets rid of the opponents Leftovers, Eviolite, Choice Scarf/Band/Specs and among other things, and chosen over Waterfall because it helps in stalling, and Waterfall won't do much anyways. Wish heals it and its Allies greatly, providing nice Team support. Protect allows you to not rish getting hit waiting for the Wish. Toxic also pairs well with Protect for nice stalling, while the opponent cannot hurt you. Regenerator or Healer as the Ability, take your pick.

Healer only works in Doubles, right?
Yep, I think so.
So isn't Regenerator the only useful ability?
Regenerator is the greatest thing on him :D
Yeah, but Healer can be for Doubles xD
Who plays RU Doubles? xD
Someone, lol!

Alomomola (F) @ Leftovers

Role: Double Battle Support

Trait: Healer

EVs: 252 HP / 160 Def / 96 SDef

Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)

  • Heal Pulse
  • Wide Guard
  • Wish
  • Waterfall

Made for a Complete Double Battle support,

Heal Pulse Keeps alive the Sturdy Tanks you have out in the field, You can wish off a good bit of damage dealt to you, so you can keep suppporting others, And Wide Guard can even help toxic guard, and Surf damage.

Mist only covers against stat changes, not actual status if I'm not mistaken. Even if it did, you'd still lose the stats.

"Mist does not remove any stat modifiers already in effect, does not prevent the stat modifications associated with burns or paralysis, and does not prevent the user from successfully using stat modifiers. "
Well, I was mostly reffering to Burns and Parahax, but glad you pointed that out
They still receive the stat drop that comes with the status though.

Barely better than Luvdisc.

Ability: Hydration

EVs: HP, Defense, Sp Def Nature: Careful

Rain Dance: +Rest+hydration

Rest: Fully heals you with no consequences thanks to Hydration.

Wake-Up Slap: Type coverage.

Waterfall: STAB powered by Rain Dance.

Hmm, makes a nice physical wall in UU and RU.

Alomomola (F) @Leftovers/@Damp Rock

Trait: Hydration

EVs: 252 HP / 196 Def / 60 Sp. Atk

Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Rest

  • Scald

  • Rain Dance

  • Toxic

Alright, I got this set from a friend, but he doesn't have an account here, so I'm posting for him.

The basic strategy is to start off with Rain Dance. Leftovers are usually better, but Damp Rock gives you a full 8 turns of rain, which most of the time works in your favor (unless they use Thunder.. but then again, why are you using a physical set against a special Pokemon?)

After Rain Dance, if you're trying to stall them out, go Toxic first . This usually works if they're a Fire Pokemon, because Rain Dance neutralizes their STAB, and they're immune to the burn from Scald.

For all the other Physical pokemon, after Rain Dance, spam Scald. Eventually it will get the burn, which will help you survive hits even more.

And then, after everything is well and done, heal it off with a nice nap. Hydration will cure you of your sleep, unless the rain ends at the end of the turn you Rest.

Stalls, walls, team support, blah, blah, blah. Time for an attacking Alomomola.

Alomomola @ Life Orb
Ability: Regenerator
Adamant Nature
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
-Knock Off
-Aqua Jet
-Wake-Up Slap / Facade

No one sees this coming. Probably because it's garbage.
But seriously, set-up sweepers coming in on this can switch in, only to take a powerful Knock Off to the face. Follow up with Waterfall, and finish with Aqua Jet. The last move is your preference: Wake-Up Slap for coverage and ResTalkers, or Facade to give a nasty surprise to those who Toxic you, burn you, etc. Also, Regenerator heals off LO damage.

Alomomola@Leftovers (try to read the name from right to left ..... it's the same)


Rain Dance : Tο active its ability

Ice beam : Covers grass ,also is a great move

Surf : STAB , this is necessary

Rest : Fully heals you without sleeping by Hydration + Rain Dance

Where is Wish and Toxic, it sucks as a attacker and this needs Evs.
It's name is also known as a palindrome

Alomomola.. a Blissey wanna-be. :D.

EV's on HP and SDef and remaining 4 on Defence.
Ability should be Hydration cause it's amazing :D.

Rest- To heal up and piss everyone off. You don't fall asleep due to hydration :3
Toxic- I think everyone knows what this is used for..
Rain Dance- It would be better if you have a Politoad of a Kyogre set it up.. but just in case.
Heal Pulse ( If he can learn it... never checked ) or Protect to stall even more for toxic to kill everything. :/..

Well because of Heal Pulse I assume this is doubles? I like this set but it isn't really a Blissey wanna-be it's special defense isn't good at all.

Ability: Healer
EV's 108 HP/ 200 Defense/200 Spe Defense
Item: Leftovers
Aqua Jet/Waterfall

This guy is easily bulky enough to be a toxic staller. The EV spread allows him to take a couple hits. Toxic badly poisons the opponent. Protect stalls even more, Wish can heal him up with the help of protect. The last two moves are fillers, for taunts, steel typez, poison types, immunity pokes, and , in the case of aqua jet, finishing pokes off. This set gets destroyed by certain pokes typing, like dragalae's dragon water and ferrothorn's grass steel typing, and a lot of steel type walls.
