Suggestions for my first Baton Pass Team!

0 votes

Ok, i am in a mood to make a Baton Pass team. Here we go!

Ninjask

Ninjask (M) @ Focus Sash
Trait: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 SpD/ 4 HP
Jolly Nature (+SpD,-SAtk)

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

Ninjask is a must-have in Baton Pass teams because of it's Ability, Speed Boost. Swords Dance is for boosting Attack to pass it on later and Protect is for not fainting while spamming Swords Dance. X-Scissor is for STAB and is pretty good Bug type attack, to use only in Emergencies, unless you want to take down the opponent with a Swords Dance boosted X-Scissor. Baton Pass is the theme of this team so.... Yeah.

Mew

Mew @ Leftovers
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 240 Def/ 228 SDef/ 16 SpD/ 14 HP
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Nasty Plot
  • Hypnosis
  • Psychic
  • Baton Pass

This is a Moveset for a Special Baton Pass Mew. Nasty Plot is for boosting Special Attack. Hypnosis is for making foes Sleep so they can be easier to KO. Psychic is for STAB and could be pumped up with Nasty Plot. Baton Pass will always be here.

Gorebyss

Gorebyss @ White Herb
Trait: Swift Swim
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 252 SpD/ 4Def
Timid Nature (+SpD,-Atk)

  • Shell Smash
  • Surf
  • Ice Beam
  • Baton Pass

Originally, this was a risky Moveset but White Herb fixes it all. Use Shell Smash to sharply raise Gorebyss's Special Attack, Attack and Speed. This move also lowers both Defenses. With White Herb, this stat lowering is restored, keeping the Defenses at a reasonable level. Surf is for reliable STAB and hits hard after being pretty nicely boosted. Ice Beam hits Grass types, who are super-effective on Gorebyss. Baton Pass is to pass that nice Shell Smash boost to the next guy.

Umbreon

Umbreon (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Synchronize
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Def/ 4 Atk
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Wish
  • Toxic
  • Sucker Punch
  • Baton Pass

Umbreon is my favorite Eeveelution and i got a Baton Pass moveset for him here. Wish is Baton Passable so the next Pokemon that you Baton Pass will get healed. Toxic is for poisoning to kill the foe more easily. Sucker Punch is for STAB and is for lowering some health and Baton Pass is for passing all these stuff.

Mienshao

Mienshao @ Life Orb
Trait: Regenerator
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 SpD/ 4 HP
Jolly Nature (+SpD,-SAtk)

  • Hi Jump Kick
  • Stone Edge
  • Work Up
  • Baton Pass

I had to take Mienshao in my team to cover my weaknesses because i needed a Baton Passer that could learn Stone Edge and this Pokemon is a good choice. Hi Jump Kick is for STAB and Stone Edge is for Coverage again Flying types and other types like Bug types that my team is weak against. Work Up is for raising Attack and Special Attack to pass it on with Baton Pass.

Gliscor

Gliscor (M) @ Toxic Orb
Trait: Poison Heal
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 SpD/ 4 Def
Jolly Nature (+SpD,-SAtk)

  • Earthquake
  • Stone Edge
  • Swords Dance
  • Baton Pass

Gliscor.... It is weird that he can Baton Pass. If he has Poison Heal, Toxic Orb is a must-have. Earthquake is for STAB and Stone Edge is for Coverage against Ice types. Swords Dance is for boosting Attack for passing it on later.

That is it! This is my first Baton Pass team so there could be stuff to improve. If possible, do not change the Pokemon of this team. You can do it only if it's really necessary. Thank you in advance!

Why EVS in attack on Mew?
jolly nature doesn't raise SpD btw
SpD = Speed T.T
I write it like that, as long as people understand me.

Standard Ninjask no suggestions here gives you attack and speed for a sweeper you will probably want to put on you team.



Hes alright but remember to use hypnosis before nasty plot(just something you forgot in our battle) but i say why make him a passer too. You need at least one pokemon to take all the boost why not make it him. Give him these evs: 252 SAtk/ 252 Spd/ 4 HP. Then give him shadow ball,pyshock,and focus blast. Keep only hypnosis that way you can be fast put all their pokemon to sleep and sweep away. Pyshock is there for those blasted chanseys that get in your way because they think you are all special.Also try Life orb over



If you want to baton pass think about what you are doing with this one. Because if you shell smash then switch the def and sdef drops could make you faint and then you will lose all your stats raises. Thats why i say shell smash and then stay in with this guy. Switch Surf for Scald for the Burn chance. If you want to keep baton pass thats fine but i suggest you dump it and go with a different move. A Filler is all you need.



Take baton pass off this guy. What are you going to pass on. How about the move Curse to buff up that defense some more, not so much as attack because you can get that from ninjask. But then after all those curse you will probably be slower than your opponent. Thats where all that attacked boosted sucker punch comes in. Oh and you dont have to baton pass wish for it to take effect the pokemon who used wish just has to be alive.



Why work up, swords dance since you arnt using special attacks. If you dont want either you can go for U-turn to activate its ability or fake out for some free damage.



I dont see a problem with this guy yet so i have no suggestions
