Post Pokemon for 1v1 right here

I love seeing 1v1 teams. But with one Pokemon, it doesn't work very well and there will just be a bunch of questions. So I had the idea to have this question. Answer with your Pokemon. People can comment for advice on it. Avoid using sprites as it severely lags the page.

Wait, do we get advice after the tourney, or do we not post at all until after the tourney?
Sorry for the noobish question.
You post for advice anytime you want, but I'm saying that you should post after you've lost just so your opponent doesn't see your Pokemon and counter it.

Although I really don't care. :P

This was my first 1v1 team. I used the kanto starters together And they work pretty well for me. I change the movesets once in a while, but these are the normal sets that I use-

Flora (Venusaur) (F) @ Venusaurite
Ability: Chlorophyll
EVs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SpA
Modest Nature
- Giga Drain
- Leech Seed
- Sludge Bomb
- Hidden Power [Fire]

She is really bulky & Can hit hard too. Giga drain & Leech seed is huge health regaining! Sludge bomb is STAB & poison chance, HP fire hits steels.

Chip (Charizard) (M) @ Charizardite Y
Ability: Blaze
Shiny: Yes
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
timid Nature
- Solar Beam
- Fire Blast
- Air Slash
- Roost

He wrecks stuff with STAB fire blast. The other moves are nice to have.

Spinning (Blastoise) (M) @ Blastoisinite
Ability: Rain Dish
EVs: 248 HP / 252 SpA / 8 SpD
Modest Nature
- Aura Sphere
- Dark Pulse
- Dragon Pulse
- Water Pulse

SO MANY PULSE MOOOOOVES-- he deals a lot of damage most of the time. Water pulse is STAB while the other moves are coverage.

Here's a little something I cooked up in that wierd lil' brain of mine. I call it: SubSucker Bisharp.


Rook (Bisharp)@ Sitrus Berry

Ability: Defiant
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def
Adamant Nature
- Substitute
- Sucker Punch
- Swords Dance
- Quick Guard

Tah-dah! It looks incredibly unstable, but this is 1v1, so there's a chance it could work. This set is countered by:

  • Stallers (nothing for Sucker Punch to hit)
  • Fighting-types (yowzah)
  • Infiltrator (Sub is useless)
  • Burns (can be worked around, but it's not pretty)

My thoughts behind this Bisharp:

I was toying around with Pokémon for VGC 2015 when I came to Bisharp. Somehow I thought of Sub + Sucker Punch Mega Mawile and wondered if it could apply to Bisharp. So I whipped out the ol' thinking cap and put together what I dubbed "SubSucker Bisharp". The thinking is to (hopefully) get a Substitute out without taking too much damage. As the opponent tries to break the first Sub, I Swords Dance. I Swords Dance until the Sub is broken. Then I put out another Sub and eat my Sitrus Berry. They are forced to break this Sub. Now I slay them with anywhere from a +1 (in case of Intimidate) to a +6 Sucker Punch. Quick Guard is to prevent ugly Mach Punches for a turn, although I could replace it with Iron Head to hit things that Sucker Punch cannot.


So there it is, my original concept of SubSucker Bisharp! I have never used this in practice, but in theory it's pretty cool.

WARNING: SubSucker Bisharp has not been battle-tested. Use at your own risk.

This was already on here, I don't want to take credit for it, but I can't remember who it was by. It was an incredible 1v1 moveset that is a lot of fun to play with, here it is:

Alakazam @ Alakazite (note the original used a rocky helmet which works great as well, I just prefer the extra speed)
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Protect
- Encore
- Disable
- Psychic

Pretty simple, you use protect, mega evolve and see if they use an attacking move or a status move. If they use a status move then use encore, if they use an attacking move use disable. If you have some luck then you can trap into struggle by using the opposite move from the turn before.

Pretty much how it works, hope you like this moveset not created by me!

Dang, this guy vs. SubSucker Bisharp… nothing would happen XD
No, because it could be forced into struggle :P
'Zam can't touch Bisharp with Psychic, while Bisharp can't hit back with Sucker Punch. It would come down to Struggle.
Now I really want to try this out.
