Forretress @ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)
252 Def/ 252 HP/ 4 SDef
- Volt Switch
- Stealth Rock
- Rapid Spin
- Gyro Ball

Hazard Lead/Spinner. Lays down Rocks, then Volts outta there to come in later as a spinner if needed. also carries GB to allow it to have some offensive utility in times of dire need.

Alakazam @ Life Orb
Trait: Magic Guard
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
- Psyshock
- Focus Blast
- Thunderbolt
- Grass Knot

pretty much a standard Life Orb abuser, Magic Guard, blah blah, you know how this works. Grass Knot was added mainly as an unconventional way to deal with Quagsire Swampert and Carracosta should they make an unexpected appearance.

Terrekion @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Justified
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
252 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP
- Close Combat
- Stone Edge
- X-Scissor
- Earthquake

F's schtuff up. Dual stabs, and great neutral coverage combined with massive power and Scarf Speed.... im done now.

Gliscor @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
252 Def/ 180 SDef/ 36 HP
- Earthquake
- Ice Fang
- Facade
- Protect

Sableye @ Leftovers
Trait: Prankster
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
252 SDef/ 180 HP/ 36 Def
- Shadow Sneak
- Substitute
- Toxic
- Taunt

i can honestly say this is one of the most annoying Sableye sets i have ever seen used in my life. Substitute makes the little b*stard hard to hit and Toxic + Taunt allows Stalling out even mixed walls with Healing like Umbreon. Prankster Taunt is so annoying against things that need to set up like Skarmory, Forretress, and Cloyster. Shadow Sneak may not have a ton of power, but adds to the theme of Prankster by always going before the opponent and screwing up the ir plans as much as possible.

Slowbro @ Leftovers
Trait: Regenerator
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)
252 SDef/ 252 Def/ 4 SAtk
- Scald
- Flamethrower
- Calm Mind
- Recover

Special Tank. B3N swears that this thing is like Chuck Norris on Steroids if he only had the intelligence of a lobatomized cow: pwns like a baws while staring stupidly off at a telephone pole, convinced that it sees the answer to where its Lunchables went. so im gonna try it out, but this is a different set that some I've seen. B3N, if you have any feedback on this poor, addle-brained creature, please feel free to share :D

Scizor @ Choice Band
Trait: Technician
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
22 Atk/ 252 Spd/ 4 SDef
- Bullet Punch
- U-Turn
- Pursuit
- Superpower

youve seen this before. you've either used it, or had your team smashed into bits by it. either way, you know what it is, and what it does. so you know that to be afraid is only natural. for what man doesn't feel sheer terror upon looking his demise in the face??

that's it. read, rate, randomly clean your fingernails arbitrarily, whatever makes you happy. just make sure you do the first 2 things on that list first.

i didn't make it clear, but im trying to decide between Gliscor and Sableye. i didn't give a description on Gliscor cuz its self explanatory
lol dat title
Ya know what? I think I am going to validate this team in the form of rating it
his team says thank you. it had just finished flipping its long emo bangs out of its face abduction was going to self-mutilated while locked in its bedroom as a passive-aggressive cry for attention, when you helped it realize that Fallout Boy is for sissies and that the reason emo kids try hurt themselves is because they hate themselves for listening to such garbage. this team then had a breakthrough moment and therpeutically smashed every Rites of Spring album it had purchased since middle school...and suddenly, it has FRIENDS!!

Alright, I have used all of these Pokemon before (not always these sets, but I have still used them), and I see a few things that could be fixed, as well as what looks to be some typos.



Forretress - Alrighty, Forry is a great lead, but you have such beastliness there, why not go to town? Boot Gyro Ball and get some Spikes in there, as he has the defenses to set them up, and it is not hard to do either. Besides, you aren't out much Gyro Ball doesn't hit very hard with Forry, regardless of how slow he is. Other than that your looking good.



Alakazam - I just love Alakazam, he is one of my favorite sand sweepers. First thing I see is that you have 252 Atk EVs on him, and I'm geussing that is a typo, make it Spatk. As well as a mono-attacking set works, I have been going with a Calm Mind set recently and it allows him to punish quite a few enemies. Keep Focus Blast, but ditch Psyshock for Psychic, as Psyshock just doesn't have that oomph that Psychic gives. Replace Thunderbolt for Calm Mind, as a Neutral Psychic at +1 is gonna wreck just about anything. If you want a grass move I suggest you go with Energy Ball, but I use Shadow Ball to hit Ghosts and other Psychic types. Trust me, once you have a Calm Mind or two up, you will be nearly unsttopable, just watch out for revenge killers. Another perk to running Calm Mind over a mono-attacking set is that you can't get nailed by Suckerpunch if you predict correctly.



Terrakion - Looks dandy, only thing I have to add is that you might wanna put Rock Slide > Stone Edge due to increased accuracy and the flinch chance, since you will be most likely moving first, you might as well try and get a flinch. But if you want the extra power provided by Stone Edge then go with that instead.



Sableye or Gliscor? I have never had much success with Gliscor, but Sableye is just amazing. Definitely go with Sableye. Now geuss what, your Sableye set needs some tweaking. (See below)



Sableye - Ok, you have one of the most annoying Pokemon ever, and you haven't even used his greatest selling point. The set I have used with devastatingly trolly effects is the one you should use to:

Sableye @ Leftovers
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 252 HP, 120 Def, 134 Spdef
Careful Nature
- Taunt
- Will-O-Wisp
- Recover
- Night Shade/Shadow Sneak

You already know the deadliness of priority Taunt, but priority w.o.w. is just insane, as you can cripple an opponent's deadliest physical sweeper before they can even attack you, which also helps with Sableye's defense. Priority Recover allows Sableye to heal his trolly self right up before the foe can hit him, and your choice of Night Shade (Hits harder) or Shadow Sneak (Yet more priority) will help chip down the opponent's HP even more. This set is amazing, so definitely give ot a go.



Slowmonster - I have never tried any other Slowbro than my faithful physical wall, but I have heard a Calm Mind set works pretty well, thing is, Slowbro is not a special wall, he is a physical wall. Last I checked, Slowbro can't learn Recover, so you will want to replace that with Slack Off. Then, change your 252 Spdef EVs into HP EVs. Calm Mind will raise your Special Defense, so put some HP in there and you should be considerably more bulky. Only other thing I have to add is that Slowbro doesn't need to be any smarter than it is, it possesses unstoppabability.



Scizor - Never used CB Scizor before but I have seen others use it to demolish unsuspecting foe's. Don't change nothin.

thanks man. i moved yesterday and it was 3am when i posted this, i was so tired. Sableye looks awesome, thanks. i meant Slack Off on Slowbro but i couldn't remember what it was called haha braindead by this point, so i just said Recover and hoped someone would correct it. what's your physical wall set you use with Slowbro though? i just needed something to Tank some Special hits cuz i wanted to try something besides my usual OU SkarmBliss core.
Slowbro @ Leftovers, Regenerator (DW) 252 Def, 252 HP, 4 Spatk, Bold Nature, Scald, Disable, Thunder Wave, Slack Off. It looks similar to Smogon's ssupport set but it works much better
You should use Bold > Careful, the sdef boost does nothing compared to a +def nature, & you want to wall physical attackers thoroughly.
Oh yeah, I meant to say bold but I was thinking careful for some reason. Thnx
sweet. i loved in Pokemon Stadium, when you KO Slowbro, it has to look back at its tail, which then nods its shell in affirmation, before Slowbro realizes its been owned and collapses in defeat xD
