Studowoodo (Sudowoodo) (M) @ Red Card
EVs: 128 HP / 128 Atk / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Stealth Rock
- Wood Hammer
My old time buddy from Gold Silver and Crystal, slayer of the 4th gym leader's Gengar, with completely different stats, but the same classic nickname.
Stealth Rock's are great to scare off things like Articuno and Moltres, and are generally a nice tool to have over my opponent. Earthquake takes care of business with other Rock layers, like Bastiodon and Steelix, and Explosion lets him play a suicide role if needed. While Wood Hammer Covers Ground and Water, and is generally awesome.
Pink Flamer (Magmortar) (F) @ Choice Scarf
Trait: Vital Spirit
EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Focus Blast
My Special sweeper, who doesn't need to set up.
Choice Scarf boosts up that speed, and he has a maxed out Sp Atk stat at 383, which will take opponents out quickly My quick sweeper, no set up, just sweep. Psychic gives coverage to fighting types ( They always seem to have Stone Edge and Earthquake ) Flamethrower is STAB, which is only completely walled by Heatmor in the NU tier. Thunderbolt is awesome coverage, and it takes out Water mainly. While Focus Blast can take out Rock types, and generally be there for awesome coverage.
Droopiust (Tropius) (M) @ Lum Berry
EVs: 252 HP / 128 Def / 128 SDef
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Dragon Dance
- Bullet Seed
My Physical set up sweeper, who can break subs too!
Lum Berry protects him from status, and all of the status really gets to this guy, Rest makes use of the Lum + Harv Combo. Dragon Dance lets you set up, and then you can rest off the damage, Bullet Seed is STAB that can break subs, and in Gen V this move just became totally boss like. Earthquake gives great coverage of 5 types, Mainly Fire in this situation.
Pincer (Pinsir) (M) @ Choice Scarf
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 Hp
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Rock Slide
- Close Combat
My physical -- Just go right in there no need to set up -- sweeper.
Rock Slide is more accurate, his Attack stat is already through the roof, so no need for Stone Edge here.
X-Scissor is great STAB, reliable carries him far. Close Combat is cool coverage, and I wish it was STAB on this guy. While Earthquake will always contain it's awesomeness of covering 5 types.
Beautiful (Beautifly) (F) @ Focus Sash
EVs: 252 SAtk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Quiver Dance
- Giga Drain
- Bug Buzz
Unlike Will, I don't have the balls to slap Specs on this Bug, so I'm using it as a set up sweeper.
Quiver Dance is basically a Special Dragon dance, with the added casualty of the special bulk it gives you ( Go Bulk ) Giga Drain can recover some Hp back, and gives good coverage ( Including coverage to a 4X weakness ) Bug Buzz is STAB, and Psychic is extra coverage.
Snow Flake (Cryogonal) @ Light Clay
EVs: 64 HP / 128 SAtk / 64 SDef / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Rapid Spin
- Ice Beam
- Confuse Ray
- Light Screen
Besides my lead, every pokemon in my team has a weakness to rocks, so Cryogonal makes up for that. With Rapid spin. Ice Beam is STAB and fairly powerful, while Confuse Ray can screw up an opponent, and Light Screen supports his Special Defenses ( His Physical really aren't worth trying to save ) And makes my Rock type Stud up there on top have an easier time if he doesn't commit suicide.
