Help with my first Baton Pass Team.

1 vote

This is my first baton pass team. I decided to make one because it seemed like fun. However, I do need some help with what I have going here. If I'm mis-using a pokemon or should substitute one I have, or whatever, please help. I am working out of Gen V.

Ninjask@ Focus Sash
Ability: Speed Boost
Jolly Nature ( +Spe , -SpA )
EV's: Spe-252 / HP-76 / Def-184

  • Baton Pass
  • Swords Dance
  • Substitute
  • X-Scissor

Ninjask is my lead. With the Speed Boost ability and Swords Dance I can get some good boosts in both stats. It can also set up Substitute, which is crucial. X-Scissor is a STAB attack that I have in case it gets Taunted.

Ability: Synchronize
Careful Nature ( +SpD , -SpA )
EV's: HP-252 / SpD-128 / Spe-128

  • Baton Pass
  • Mean Look
  • Wish
  • Substitute

I'm using Umbreon as a Mean Look / Wish passer. My thinking was that I would use Mean Look, then pass to Mr. Mime who would Encore & Trick the Choice Specs onto whatever, and then I could set up my team with ease.

Mr. Mime
Mr. Mime@ Choice Specs
Ability: Soundproof
Timid Nature ( +Spe , -Atk )
EV's: HP-252 / Spe-252 / SpD-4

  • Baton Pass
  • Encore
  • Trick
  • Calm Mind

Mr. Mime is my Calm Mind passer, and my "trapper" pokemon for the team. Umbreon passes Mean Look here, then Mr. Mime Encores and Tricks the Choice Specs onto the other guy.

Smeargle@ ______
Ability: Own Tempo
Jolly Nature ( +Spe , -SpA )
EV's: HP-128 / Spe-252 / Def-128

  • Baton Pass
  • Spore
  • Ingrain
  • Substitute

Smeargle uses Spore and Ingrain. Spore to provide some security and Ingrain to prevent phazing, so that my chain is unbroken.

Vaporeon@ Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb
Bold Nature ( +Def , -Atk )
EV's: HP-128 / Def-252 / Spe-128

  • Baton Pass
  • Acid Armor
  • Aqua Ring
  • Surf

Vaporeon is my Defensive & Aqua Ring Passer. I gave it Surf, so that it has a STAB water move. I've considered replacing Aqua Ring or Surf with Work Up.

Now here I'm trying to pick a receiver.I'm trying to decide between Lucario or Espeon as a Mixed Sweeper. DW Espeon will have Magic Bounce, but Lucario has stats that are better suited for Mixed attacking.

I don't know, I've seen many similar Teams with almost the same Pokemon.
