Hello ! I'm posting for my brother. He loves Drifblim and Clefable and created a Flare Boost strategy. I would like to check if it works, though. No worries, he's got 4 other independent Pokemon in his party so if this fails, he can still win.
@ Flame Orb:
Trait: Flare Boost
EV: 200 HP / 52 Spe / 248 Sp.ATK / 4 Def / 4 sp.Def
- Shadow Ball
- Rain Dance
- Weather Ball
Trait: Magic Guard
EV: 252 HP / 126 Def / 126 sp.Def / 4 sp.ATK
- Stored Power
- Calm Mind
PS: This is only for Double Battle.
- Drifblim does Rain Dance on the first turn. Clefable does Calm mind.
Drifblim gets burned. Flare Boost will double Drifblim's speed 'cuz it got burned.
- Drifblim attacks with one of his 3 attacks (the strongest in the situation), then Clefable Trick with Drifblim; giving Leftovers and taking Flame Orb. Now Clefable is burned, while Drifblim takes the Burn and recover most of the damage with Leftovers. Clefable's ability, Magic Guard, prevent it from being affected by damage. Then, as it got burned, Facade's base power doubles.
- Drifblim spams a new hit, while Clefable gives the Flame Orb to Sheer Force Conkeldurr and sensible-to it Pokemon.
- Drifblim attacks, Clefable stores power. In this case, opponent may believe that Drifblim is important, and there they rush in the trap: Clefable would have stored power, giving out an all insane Stored Power, and the 2 Pokemon spams attacks one right after the other.
My brother's got 4 other individual sweepers so if this fails, he can still counter-attack.
Would this work, or not ?
