Clamperl @ DeepSeaTooth


Trait: Rattled
Level: 5
EVs: 76 HP / 248 SAtk / 180 Spd
Timid Nature

  • Shell Smash
  • Surf
  • Ice Beam
  • Hidden Power [Grass] / [Fire]

Shell Smash up and watch Clamperl wreak havoc on the opponents team. After once Shell Smash, it has a massive 68 special attack, capable of OHKOing a huge portion of the metagame. Surf is your reliable STAB that will be hitting most Pokes insanely hard. Ice Beam is coverage against things that Surf can't hit, such as Grass and Dragon types. HP Grass hits bulky Water types your Water-Ice coverage misses out on, while HP Fire nails Ferroseed and any other Steel types harder than any other move at its disposal.

Abra @ Focus Sash
enter image description here
Trait: Magic Guard
Nature: Timid
EV's: 252 Sp. Attack/252 Speed/4 Def
Moves:
- Psychic
- Shadow Ball
- Hidden Power Fighting
- Protect

Abra has really high Special Attack, but it is also very frail. Watch out for Sucker Punch in particular, but that is why I suggest the Focus Sash. Because of Magic Guard Abra will always have the Sash intact when it first enters a battle, so any unexpected move like that will not matter, until it has taken some damage, anyway.

Gastly@Life Orb/Focus Sash
Gastly
Ability: Levitate
Nature: Modest/Timid
EVs: 196 SpAtk/196 Spd/36 HP/40 Def/40 SpDef
Moves:

  • Psychic
  • Shadow Ball
  • Energy Ball
  • Thunderbolt

Psychic/Energy Ball/Thunderbolt are all moves that give nice coverage and Shadow Ball is for stab. Pretty self-explanatory.

Note: You can't put 252 EVs in one stat because you can only put a certain amount of EVs until it does not increase the stat anymore. On Pokemon Showdown, you can try this by putting 252 EVs in one stat and compare it to putting 196 EVs in the same stat.
