Sharpedo Power >:D

0 votes

So the other day I had the overwhelming urge to use Sharpedo, and I figured that the best place to do that would be OU in the rain. The problems that I faced were that Politoed and Sharpedo don't synergize very well, and Sharpedo is frail. Also, the coverage options are kind of bad as whenever I try to use Ice Fang I find myself needeing Earthquake and vice versa. Eventually I settled with Earthquake as it has a higher BP :3
The rest of the team i tried to make so it synergized with Sharpedo, who is very frail. So far the team is 6-2, I still have some testing to do but I am limitied as far as computer acces right now.



Politoed @ Leftovers
Politoed
Trait: Drizzle
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Modest Nature
- Toxic
- Scald
- Perish Song
- Protect

Standard Physically Defensive Politoed, Toxic is for poisoning enemies, and Perish Song helps end the wrath of things such as Shell Smash Cloyster by either forcing them to switch or killing them should they stay in. Scald is STAB and has nifty littel burn chance which can come in handy. Protect is for stalling with Toxic and Perish Song, as well as scouting moves and gaining Leftovers recovery.

Gliscor @ Toxic Orb
Glsicor
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spd
Impish Nature
- Baton Pass
- Protect
- Substitute
- Toxic

Glisocor's job is is to Toxic Stall and Baton Pass Substitutes to team mates. Sharpedo is deadly with a Substitute up, and so are many of my other team mates, including Gliscor himself.

Sharpedo @ Life Orb
Sharpedo, destroyer of worlds
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature
- Crunch
- Protect
- Earthquake
- Waterfall

Ah Sharpedo. The star of the show. Life Orb and Adamant give him maximum attacking power, meaning he can hit rather hard. Crunch is STAB, and I have been considering replaceing it for Ice Fang, but the threat of being walled by Starmie has kept Crunch on the set so far. Protect can be used for stalling if the enemy is poioned or burned from Glsicor or Sableye respectively, and raises Sharpedo's speed thanks to Speed Boost. Earthquake has been selected over Ice Fang because of it's higher base power and it's ability to hit most Steel types super effectively, and not take iron Barbs damage from Ferrothorn.Waterfall is main STAB, and hits with Bonecrushing force in the rain, and with Sharpedo's Speed Boost, Waterfall has a diabolical flinch chance that really helps when taking down pokemon that resist most of the set such as Venusaur, which resist's Waterfall and is still typically 2HKO'd without Black Sludge or Giga Drain.

Scizor @ Choice Band
Scizor
Trait: Technician
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spd
Adamant Nature
- Bullet Punch
- Pursuit
- SuperPower
- U-turn

I use Scizor a lot (more than I would like to) and I didn't want to but Genesect is Ubers now and I needed something to take Grass moves. It is just your standard CB Scizor, nothing special about it except for destructive power.

Jolteon @ Choice Specs
Jolteon
Trait: Volt Absorb
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature
- Hidden Power [Ice]
- Signal Beam
- Thunder
- Volt Switch

I had never used Jolteon prior to this team and I have to say, I love him. He is already super fast and with Specs, he can punish just about anything. Even though it is Sharpedo's job, Jolteon PWNs late game, and it doesn't really matter when I bring him in, but I usually use him to gain momentum and revenge kill with Volt Switch. HP Ice is coverage, as is Signal Beam. Thunder doesn;t get used as much as Volt Switch but hits insanely hard and let's just say you wouldn't wanna be on the receiving end.

Sableye @ Leftovers
Sableye
Trait: Prankster
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SDef
Calm Nature
- Night Shade
- Recover
- Taunt
- Will-O-Wisp

Sableye is here to support the team through burns and Taunting. He is used mainly for stalling (duh) and he works really well for stalling enemies that have been poisoned by Politoed or Gliscor. The burns he is capable of inflicitng are great for letting Gliscor keep his subs up longer and and overall helps the team with it's defenses against things like Terrakion and Scizor.

Sharpedophile
Well he certainly rapes
Maybe a SD > Toxic on Gliscor? For dat +2 Pedophile sweep?
Ice Fang > EQ on the pedophille. The colder the mouth the better.
