PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
0 votes

In 1v1, you and your opponent have 3 Pokemon. You pick one to fight with. Since the sets for this tier of battling is much different than other tiers, this could be a good question/thread to put them on.

Enjoy posting the sets!

CounterCoat Swampert

Swampert @ Rindo Berry
Nature: Relaxed
EVs: 252 HP / 108 Atk / 84 Def / 64 SpD
- Counter
- Mirror Coat
- Earthquake
- Protect

This Swampert set uses Protect first to see what move the opponent is using, then uses Counter or Mirror Coat as is appropriate. Earthquake is a powerful attack that makes sure Swampert isn't Taunt bait. Rindo Berry lets Swampert survive unSTABed Grass-type attacks such as Infernape's Grass Knot. Swampert should otherwise be able to survive all attacks outside of STAB Grass-type attacks and Choice Specs Porygon-Z's Hyper Beam. The Defense EVs let it survive a Jolly Life Orb Breloom's Seed Bomb if it chooses to attack instead of Sporing first. Protect helps it beat potential mixed attackers and Slaking, whose Giga Impact may also KO Swampert. The only problems to this set are sleep abusers, Grass-types, stat-uppers, and also physical Ghost-types such as Shedinja that Counter can't hit. Specially-based Dark-types tend to not be a problem.
