Gengar (M) @ Choice Specs

Trait: Levitate
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

  • Shadow Ball
  • Hidden Power [Fire]
  • Thunderbolt
  • Trick

Gengar just plain sweeps. Choice Specs and his already amazing Special Attack HURTS. Shadow Ball is my main STAB, providing excellent coverage. Hidden Power [Fire] hurts Ferrothorn, Scizor, and Forretress. HARD. My main attacking move against Steels. Thunderbolt helps to get rid of Gyarados and Skarmory. Trick is to screw entry hazard setters and Chansey. The main role of Gengar is to take Ground type and Fighting types moves for Heatran, and Specially sweep. It's also a great Spinblocker. Dark, Psychic, and Ghost type moves go to Heatran or Forretress.


Forretress (M) @ Leftovers

Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef
Relaxed Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Toxic Spikes
  • Spikes
  • Rapid Spin
  • Gyro Ball/Volt Switch

Forretress sets up my some of my hazards, Toxic Spikes and Spikes. Rapid Spin is to spin away any hazards that my opponent has set up. Gyro Ball is for STAB is is helped by my Relaxed Nature, or Volt Switch can be used to scout and escape Magnezone's Magnet Pull. This Forretress is my main Physical Wall, boasting 354 HP as well as a max 416 Defense. Sturdy helps in living some unexpected Critical hits or Fire moves that randomly come in. (Fire Punch Gengar almost OHKOed this thing. LOL). Fire moves, Forretress' only weakness, is sent to Heatran. Forretress can take Dark, Psychic, and Ghost type moves for Gengar. Bug, Ghost, Ice, Dark, and Poison moves from Celebi can be taken. Ice moves aimed at Landorus can also be taken.


Gyarados (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Moxie
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

  • Dragon Dance
  • Waterfall
  • Bounce
  • Earthquake

Gyarados is my main bulky Physical sweeper. Dragon Dance boosts my Mediocre Speed and my epic Attack. Waterfall is my main STAB, takes out Rock types, and that extra flinching chance is nice. Earthquake is to cover that NASTY Electric type weakness. Now, you guys may be wondering, why the heck is Bounce doing on my Gyarados? It offers great coverage, is STAB, and has that Paralysis chance. Combined with Waterfall, this provides a Para-Flinch combo. Ground Type moves aimed at Heatran go to Gyarados, as well as Fire and Bug moves directed at Celebi.


Heatran (F) @ Leftovers

Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 252 HP / 48 SAtk / 208 SDef
Calm Nature (+SDef, -Atk)

  • Lava Plume
  • Earth Power
  • Stealth Rock
  • Toxic

Heatran is my main Special Wall. Max HP and 330 Special Defense is nice. Lava Plume is my main STAB, and has a 30% chance to burn. Great way to ruin Physical Pokemon. Earth Power ruins other Heatran. Stealth Rock completes the three entry hazards. Toxic is for poisoning Pokemon that aren't affected by burn at all. Part of my CeleTran combo. Takes in Fire moves for Forretress, Ice moves aimed at Landorus, and Bug, Ice, Fire, Poison, Flying, Ghost, and Dark moves for Celebi.


Landorus (M) @ Expert Belt

Trait: Sand Force
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SAtk / 252 Spd
Hasty Nature (+Spd, -Def)

  • Hidden Power [Ice]
  • Earthquake
  • Smack Down
  • Brick Break

Expert Belt Landorus. Hidden Power [Ice] destroys Dragonite (assuming Stealth Rock is up), Salamance, and Gliscor. Earthquake is STAB. Smack Down is for knocking down Flying/Levitating Pokemon who switch in to take an Earthquake. "Hey guys, thanks for taking an Earthquake!" Brick Break for coverage. Takes Ground moves for Heatran.


Celebi @ Leftovers

Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)

  • Seed Bomb
  • U-turn
  • Zen Headbutt
  • Swords Dance

Celebi, part of the other CeleTran combo. I'm trying out a Physical set out here. EVs give this thing Max HP. Swords Dance buffs my Attack. Seed Bomb is my main STAB. Zen Headbutt is my other STAB, which also has a nice Flinch chance. U-Turn is to scout. It takes in Ground, Water, and Fighting for Heatran, and Electric moves for Gyarados.
