So, right now I'm currently running this set for my Mienshao and I find it pretty efficient to use.
Mienshao @ Choice Scarf
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
- High Jump Kick
- Stone Edge
- Poison Jab
The only question I have is stated in the title, is it worth it to use Adamant over Jolly?
I chose Jolly originally because it ensures it to outspeed other Pokemon that are not choice scarfed or using priority moves. However, with a couple of bulky Pokemon (especially some fairy types), I end up being unable to 1-hit-ko and sometimes it ends up with my Mienshao being dropped just like that.
So, is it worth it just to get a 10% boost in attack and lose the 10% boost in speed?
