Who is the 'master controller of the hazards'?

0 votes

Who the best Pokemon to set up entry hazards based on:

  • Hazards Movepool (Toxic Spikes, Spikes, Stealth Rock, Sticky Web)
  • Access to Whirlwind/Roar/Rapid Spin/ect.
  • Stats (You need bulk to set all the hazards)
  • Everything else needed to set up hazards that I can't think of right now

Could you list the Pokemon with a suggested moveset, nature, ect. please?

Tsk tsk. This set is not excactly recommended, but master of hazard: yes

Forretress @leftovers
Impish nature
Trait: overcoat
EVs: 252 HP / 192 Def / 66 SDef
Moveset:
-spikes
-stealth rock
-toxic spikes
-Rapid spin

Again: not viable in competitive as defog is very comics nowadays and 6 rounds of hàrd work setting up hazard is wasted. Personally: i love using this set:

Smeargle@ focus sash
Timid nature
Trait: own tempo
EVs: 252 spe/ 252 Hp/ 4 def
Moves:
-sticky web
-stealth rock
-spore
-destiny bond

You kbow....  Use spore, set up hazards and die W/ opponent. My favorite Set and favorite hazards. Use it together with a slow pokemon that cant sweep becaise its to slow, and then: sweep
whirlwind over destiny bond
Smeargle doesn't need a phazing move :|

I got two, skarmory and forretress

Forretress
Leftovers
Sassy or Relaxed nature
Sturdy
Evs: 252 HP/252 sp. def/ 4 def

Moves:
Spikes
Toxic spikes
Stealth rocks
Rapid spin

Forretress already has a high defense, so we ev train it with sp. def, and having Strudy won't make it be KOed by a flamethrower, making it able to survive at least one hit and making it able to set up 1 hazard.

Skarmory
Leftovers/custap berry
Jolly or Careful nature
Sturdy
Evs: 252 HP/136sp. Def/ 116 def/4 atk

Moves:
Spikes
Stealth rock
Whirlwind
Steel wing/ Brave Bird

Skarmory has high defense, decent sp. def, good atk, but low HP, so we give it max evs in HP. Steel wing or Brave bird for attacking moves, so when skarmory is taunted, it can still do something. Strudy for at least 1 hazard and custap berry to make it go first after Strudy is activated and do a ton of damage to the opponent after it set up 1 hazard and to do heavy damage before dieing.

I would personally suggest Skarmory, it is faster than Forrestress and can still play the same role.

Hope I helped!

Here are a couple of Pokémon who really are the masters of controlling entry hazards in the meta game:

Forretress

Forretress

Forretress has access to Stealth Rock, Spikes, Toxic Spikes and Rapid Spin.

Cloyster

Cloyster

Cloyster has access to Spikes, Toxic Spikes and Rapid Spin.

Skarmory

Skarmory

Skarmory has access to Stealth Rock, Spikes, Taunt, Whirlwind and Defog (Gen IV only)

Deoxys-D

Deoxys-D

Deoxys Defence Forme has access to Stealth Rock, Spikes and Taunt.

Donphan

Donphan

Donphan has access to Roar, Stealth Rock and Rapid Spin.

The reason I have listed these Pokémon, is because each of them have decent bulk, and because the majority of them can either set up more than one entry hazard, or clear away entry hazards.

Hope I helped :)
