Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What are some good wall breakers?

2 votes

Yes it's another thread. And no, I have not been doing too much.
Anyways, a wall breaker is a Pokemon with attack or special attack so high, even walls cannot withstand its power, a trick Pokemon, or a subbing Pokemon. Basically any Pokemon that renders a wall useless. Move sets are required, get posting!

Wall breakers... There are many kinds.

  • Pure Powerhouse: meaning a Pokemon like Zekrom.

Zekrom @ Choice Band
trait: teravolt
EVs: 252atk/4hp/252speed
adamant nature
-outrage
-bolt strike
-Stone edge
-dragon claw

  • Move/Item Power Boosts: Pokemon with attacks like Swords Dance or Nasty Plot. Or Pokemon with Choice items.

  • Mix Attackers: a Pokemon like Hydreigon is good because it has excellent Attack and Special Attack. Wall-investing Pokemon generally only bulk up one side of its defenses, but what about the other? Left totally vulnerable (usually). So [pokemon like] Hydreigon sweep the field with those.

Hydreigon @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Hasty Nature
-draco meteor
-fire blast/flamethrower
-super power
-earthquake

  • Substituting Pokemon: Omg, Terrakion! Ahem, Substitute allows your Pokemon to be immune to status moves, and resist weak attacks from defenders. Which gives you a turn to set up and... yeah.

Terrakion @ Life orb
Trait: Justified
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature
- Close Combat
- substitute
- Stone Edge
- Swords Dance

  • Immunity to Passive Damage: Passive damage as in sandstorm, poison, burn, traps, leech seed, iron barbs, and rough skin. If you can get a Pokemon with immunity to just a couple of these, you can resist most Walls' attempts at slowly draining your life points.

  • Healing moves: a strong Pokemon is good. Even better, one with a way to restore its HP. Such as Latias (oh gosh, this one annoys me badly when I try to wall...)

Latias @ leftovers
trait: levitate
252hp/228def/28SAtk
bold nature
-calm mind
-recover
-psyshock
-dragon pulse

  • Tricking!! : Pokemon that uses Trick. When used at the right moment, you can render the opponent powerless.

Zoroark @ choice specs
trait: illusion
EVs: 4hp/252spatk/252speed
timid nature
-dark pulse
-Extrasensory
-flamethrower
-trick


And yup, hope I helped.

Incorrect on the Terrakion, the Choice item will choice it into using Substitute and render it useless, while another Pokemon can set up, Choice sets usually have 4 attacking moves while occasionally using Trick.
Oops, you're right xD My bad. I'll edit that. Thank you for pointing that out

You sure love threads :P, anyway, I have nothing to do, so why not answer


Heracross @ Choice Scarf

enter image description here
Trait: Moxie
EVs:4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Adamant Nature

  • Megahorn
  • Close Combat
  • Stone Edge
  • Earthquake

Despite their size, great strength, and powerful horns, Heracross are
really docile creatures who prefer peace over resorting to violence.

They may dislike fighting and crushing everything with their massive horn, but they sure do a good job at it as this has even made Heracross viable in the Uber tier where it will be crushing threats such as Mewtwo and Darkrai and once it gets one Moxie boost, pretty much anything is crushed by it as even Arceus will not be smiling after a very beautiful Close Combat. Close Combat is an extremely powerful move and the fact that it has a perfect accuracy, such great power and Heracross gets a STAB from it, pretty much everything falls to it. The only Pokemon it will not be crushing should be Lugia and even the Great Wall itself must brace itself when being hit by a Moxie boosted Megahorn and or Stone Edge. Megahorn will be crushing many threats such as Mewtwo and Darkrai as I mentioned earlier. Stone Edge pretty much knocks down every flying object and is there to deal with Ho-oh in particular who is one of does Pokemon that has a total type disadvantage against Heracross. Though it's accuracy is unappealing, it's power is dreadful and it will get rid of that flying chicken once and forever more, but should it miss, Heracross will fall 0.0. Earthquake is a very powerful move that deals massive damage to all terrain Pokemon whiles it will also be denting every form of Arceus barring Flying, grass etc. It is there to mostly deal with anything that Close Combat couldn't do as you will most likely be sweeping the entire tier with Close Combat alone. Yes now that you have seen what damage this bug can do, you can now also see that there are not many walls that take it's moves so well. Asthe Happy egg sisters are destroyed by it whiles Skarmory is 2KO'd by it, what more should you desire if it can break the most prominent walls in the tier. However you should take note that it is pretty much walled by Gliscor, but Gliscor can however not switch into Stone Edge as it will be receiving noticeable damage
However remember that:

Despite their size, great strength, and powerful horns, Heracross are
really docile creatures who prefer peace over resorting to violence. :P


Yo JarJar, this is for you :P


JarJar @ Life Orb

enter image description here
Trait: Justified
EVs:4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature

  • Sword Dance
  • Close Combat
  • ExtremeSpeed
  • Crunch

You see JarJar are very deadly Pokemon and they can be used to extreme levels. For this reason JarJar has even been made viable in the Uver tier since it can relatively crush everything including normal, steel, dark etc.. Arceus with his STAB Close Combat. Perhaps Arceus made JarJar to dangerous? ExtremeSpeed. Do I even have to explain why this is so JarJar, have you seen the speed he answer's question's with? Well not only does he use it as a method of answering but also can he use this power to rival Extreme Speed Arceus. Get him to 4X and see how he will ExtremeSpeed everything out in the tier. Crunch is that move that will cause you to laugh in the faces of Mewtwo and Giratina, since they can't switch-in, however JarJar can't switch into them either as an Aura Sphere will be hurting....a lot. Justified will enable JarJar to switch-in on any predicted Dark type move...bariing a calm mind boosted Judgement from Dark Arceus as it will hurt a lot. Oh almost forgot to mention why JarJar is a prime wallbreaker. Close Combat is the answer. With Close Combat JarJar can easily destroy most walls...including the Happy Sisters and that spike ball called Ferrothorn. Though Gliscor like to take it like a boss, a 4X Extreme Speed and or Crunch will turn that smile upside down(see what I did there xD). Skarmory is destroyed by a boosted Close Combat and is most likely 2HKO'd if not OHKO'd anyways

Salamence - naive
Trait = intimidate (lowering attack is awesome)
item @ Dragon Fang (STAB + Dragon Fang= Awesome Damage)
- Dragon Dance
- Fire Blast / Heat Wave (kills steel only Pokemon which resist Dragons)
- Outrage
- Earthquake

A dragon Dance and Outrage beats all, Fire Blast for the rest or you can use Heat Wave

Infernape - naive
Trait = Iron Fist
item@Power Herb
- Focus Punch
- Ice Punch
- Solar Beam
-Fire Punch

Not much can be said Power Herb lets Focus Punch or Solarbeam to attack nicely and well and Focus Punch gets STAB + Iron Fist Holy Cow counters Blissey and Skarmory well the most used walls. Ice punch to counter Tangrowth another well known wall and some psychics.Fire punch can counter Ferrothorn but ouch for the iron barbs. Any ways Solar beam for coverage .

Lucario - Jolly
Trait = Steadfast(if you want your speed increased) OR Innerfocus and never get flinched
Item @ Air Ballon (Earthquakes worse then a threat for Lucario)
- Sword dance
- Close Combat
- Extreme Speed
- Crunch / Stone Edge / Ice Punch

This is a beast well when you use Sword dance and use Extreme Speed well not much damage but priority comes handy not once but many times may not work on ghosts but I don't see many ghost walls out there now do I. Well Sword dance+Close Combat deals with 89.7 % of the walls now you may decide for yourself the lost stats can be regained with a switch. Crunch , Stone Edge,/ Ice Punch are for coverage and kills some walls too
ice punch is extreme and also freezes sometime it sure is handy.

Nature: Lonely
EVs: 232 Atk 24 sp Atk 252 spd
-Outrage/Dragon Claw
-Fusion Bolt
-Ice Beam/Hidden Power Fire
-Ice Beam/Focus Blast/Roost

Although Kyurem-B is rather slow and weak to common offensive types, it excels at wallbreaking thanks to its great mixed attacking stats and movepool, especially for an ou Pokemon. Got a problem with Gliscor? Ice Beam that thang! How about Ferrothorn? HP Fire ftw. Some Pokemon trying to stop. Destroy it with the most powerful outrage around, etc. etc.

Tyranitar - Quiet
Item@ Leftovers/Power Herb

Substitute
Focus Punch
Dark Pulse
Ice Beam/Tbolt

Substitute , Then If PowerH. then you can directly kill with focus punch , Dark is handy for psychics and ghosts though there are very less but you know what think out of the box
Ice Beam/ Tbolt coverage as well as some damage.

Gyarados - Adamant
Items@ Leftovers/King's Rock

Taunt
Dragon Dance
Waterfall
Stone Edge

Dragon Dance as a strarter and then sweep the walls .You can also start with Taunt so no status moves are used .Waterfall for STAB + Flinch (+ has King's rock better chance of flinching).Stone edge kills some nasty walls.

Face it. Being walled is annoying. Nothing is more frustrating than your sweeper being stopped cold, forced to switch out and give your opponent an advantage. In GSC, Advance, and early D/P, a lot of players had problems with walls. To solve this problem, the mixed sweeper was born.

It sounds too good to be true, but there is a Pokemon that could OHKO Blissey, Heatran, Celebi, Skarmory, Bronzong, Forretress, Swampert, and Gyarados. It can 2HKO Tentacruel, Cressilia, Spiritomb, Vaporeon and Zapdos? All with unboosted attacks!

You're probably like "duh, Infernape!" But... Infernape can't touch Tentacruel, Cressilia or Vaporeon. And it can't kill Gyarados either. It's got to be someone else! But who? There's got to be a Pokemon out there that packs enough heat to 2HKO every wall in OU... but a quick glance at the OU list reveals no answers.

Magmortar

Magmortar @ Life Orb
Mild Nature
68 Attack, 196 Special Attack, 244 Speed

Fire Blast
Thunderbolt
Focus Punch
HP Grass / HP Ice

Average Damage in the Standard Metagame: 92%

Here it is folks, the Pokemon that can 2HKO everything in the entire game with just one set. Thanks to Thunderbolt and Focus Punch, Magmortar manages to set himself apart from other Fire type Pokemon. His sky high Special Attack stat is almost 20% stronger than standard Mixape with this spread. With only minimal attack investment, he is able to OHKO Blissey, Tyranitar and Heatran switch-ins with Focus Punch.

Well enough explaining, lets check out some damage calculations. Stealth Rock is included in the "OHKO or 2HKO" thing.

Walls:

Thunderbolt vs 252/0 Vaporeon: 62.07-73.06%. 2HKO
Thunderbolt vs 252/0 Milotic: 57.87-68.27%. 2HKO
Thunderbolt vs 252/0 Suicune: 60.4-71.29%. 2HKO
Thunderbolt vs 252/176 Tentacruel: 50.82-59.89%. 2HKO with SR.
Thunderbolt vs 252/252 Careful Gyarados: 100.76-118.78%. OHKO

The Gyarados thing was just for fun. Of course it OHKOs any Gyarados...

Focus Punch vs 0/252 Blissey: 87.40-102.92%. OHKO with SR.
Focus Punch vs 250/0 Tyranitar: 131.19-154.46%. OHKO
Focus Punch vs 168/120 Snorlax: 68.65-80.95. 2HKO with SR*
Focus Punch vs 4/0 Heatran: 84.52-99.69%. OHKO with SR.

Snorlax must be attacked after you Focus Punch it, but don't worry, a Thunderbolt finishes it off, even with minimum damage on both hits.

Fire Blast on 252/0 Celebi: 128.96-151.98%. OHKO
Fire Blast on 252/0 Jirachi: 128.96-151.98%. OHKO
Fire Blast on 252/96 Sassy Bronzong: 111.24-131.07%. OHKO
Fire Blast on 252/0 Zapdos: 72.34-85.28%. 79% chance to OHKO with SR.
Fire Blast on 252/0 Hippowdon: 81.67-96.19%. 2HKO.
Fire Blast on 252/0 Gliscor: 99.15-116.67%. OHKO.
Fire Blast on 20/0 Cressilia: 54.03-63.64%. 2HKO.
Fire Blast on 252/0 Cressilia: 46.85-55.18%. 2HKO with SR.
Fire Blast on 252/252 Spiritomb: 58.55-69.08%. 2HKO.

Obviously, Skarmory, Scizor and Forretress are all OHKOed.

To give you an idea of how stupidly powerful this Fire Blast is... it does about as much as Porygon-Z's Choice Specs Adaptability Tri Attack. In other words, very strong. Only Blissey can sustain repeated hits from it.

Last but not least, the Hidden Power of your choice will OHKO Swampert and Rhyperior, or Salamence, Flygon and Dragonite. It's your choice.



Sweepers:

-Fire Blast will OHKO Alakazam, Azelf, Breloom, Electivire, Heracross, Jolteon, Lucario, Magnezone, Metagross, Mamoswine, Ninjask, Porygon-Z, Scizor, Shaymin, Weavile, Yanmega, Zapdos.
-Thunderbolt will OHKO Aerodactyl, Gyarados, Ninjask, Starmie, Yanmega.
-Focus Punch will OHKO Heatran, Mamoswine, Porygon-Z, Tyranitar, Weavile.
-Hidden Power Grass will OHKO Swampert, Rhyperior.
-Hidden Power Ice will OHKO Dragonite, Flygon, Salamence, Shaymin, Yanmega.





So there you have it! All of the sturdiest walls in the OU metagame are brought down by Magmortar, no problem at all! All it takes is a bit of careful prediction, and you can start destroying everything. Practice makes perfect, and believe me, you will need a lot of practice. Just remember to do the unexpected. Don't Fire Blast that Celebi, Focus Punch, and OHKO the Heatran or Blissey that switches in! Thunderbolt Bronzong and take down a Gyarados. It's a very difficult set to use, and requires God-like prediction skills, however, used correctly, it will be the most destructive Pokemon you will ever see. Good thing it's on your side.

Trait - Sand Stream
Nature - Adamant

Crunch
Earthquake
Stone Edge/Rock Slide
Hidden Powe(fight)

Well Tyranitar is one of my favourites Reason "It can break walls while it itself is a good wall good defence and special defence make it hard to beat. You can keep Stone Edge or Rock Slide

difference when Stone edge is used in battle is noticed but Rock Slide
Flinches the Pokemon + STAB + Sand Stream and works well with a king's
rock while stonedge what can I say xcellent power low PP but alas your
choice


Well Hp fight kills many annoyers,baton passers and especially walls blissey in common even the all mighty Hydreigon getsshrills down it's back well crunch as a starter for lowerin defence and then sweeping all others even without a boost Earthquake deals with nasty people and Rock Slide / Stone Edge for those who can't be hurt by earthquake also that Sand Stream gets some health out of the opponents poke.Tyranitar
