Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What are some good supporters?

0 votes

If you dont know what I mean, I'm talking about Pokemon that use moves such as light screen, helping hand, aromatherapy, rage powder, and heal pulse to help out it's team in double or triple battles. They may have abilities like healer or freind guard. Well, I hope you understand.

Let's add a fairly obvious one.
enter image description here
Espeon @ Light Clay
Trait: Magic Bounce
EV's: 252 HP/252 Spe/4 Def
Nature: Timid
Moves:
- Reflect
- Light Screen
- Psychic/Psyshock
- Helping Hand/ Hidden Power Fire/ Hidden Power Fighting

It can set up dual screens while protecting its team from entry hazards like Stealth Rocks with its awesome ability Magic Bounce. Its main attack is either Psychic or Psyshock, which you want depends on what threats you are most concerned about. The last slot is choice. Helping Hand is to continue supporting its team mates. Hidden Power Fire deals with Scizor, and Hidden Power Fighting deals with Tyranitar, both of which are serious threats to Espeon.

i personally, wouldn't use espeon as a supporter, but thats just me :P
i wont put down my espeon moveset unless someone wants me to :P
Well, Espeon is an okay supporter, since it has the wonderful ability magic bounce, but I guess it could be a sweeper too.
it could be a sweeper, but since this question is about supporters, then that's the move set I used.

Blissey

Blissey (F) @ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Wish
  • Heal Bell
  • Seismic Toss/ Protect
  • Toxic

With this EV setup and nature, she is a Special Attack sponge. Wish can heal not only her, but her teammates too. Very helpful for pokes with no recovery options. Heal Bell to cure all teammates of Status ailments. Seismic Toss for option of attack and not be TauntTrapped. Protect is there to stall out out Toxic and get Lefties recovery. Just make sure there are no Steel types Blissey has to deal with. Toxic for nefarious purposes.


Cradily

Cradily (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd)

  • Stealth Rock
  • Giga Drain
  • Toxic
  • Recover

I remember using Cradily and it's pre-evo, Lileep, once, or twice, and they were awesome. The EV/nature setup makes him physically strong. Storm Drain allows him to switch in on Water attacks and absorb them for an Sp.Atk boost. Stealth Rock is to chip away at the opponent to help the team land kills. Giga Drain for STAB recovery. Toxic to help whittle down the enemies before you. Recover is for nefarious purposes


Whimsicott

Whimsicott (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Encore
  • Giga Drain
  • Stun Spore
  • Taunt

I've faced these spores from the Devil's arse. They are annoying. No real need for Speed investment since Prankster affects 3/4 of it's moves. Giga Drain for STAB recovery. Stun Spore is for the ParaHax. Taunt prevents setting up of Dragon Dances & Swords Dances & River Stomps.

Ludicolo @ Leftovers
Trait: Rain Dish
Nature: Calm
Evs: 252 Sp.Def/252 Sp.Atk/ 4 HP

Moveset:

  • Rain Dance
  • Leech Seed
  • Toxic
  • Surf

With the Ability Rain Dish when you have Rain Dance up you restore HP. Also holding Leftovers thats a bonus. Leech seed a Pokemon and there is more HP for you :D Toxic is for some stalling and getting some life out of your foe. Then you have surf, with good Sp.Atk + Rain Dance bonus and STAB your good to take down all Pokemon on the field.
