I would like to use this combo in online double battles in Sun & Moon. What do you think of it?
(M) Lanturn (Water/Electric) – Rain Setter + Supporter
Ability: Water Absorb / Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Sp.Atk / 4 Sp.Def
Modest Nature (+Sp.Atk, Atk)
Item: Damp Rock
Lanturn sets up with Rain Dance which powers up Surf, activates Water Absorb and makes sure Thunder never misses. Surf heals Heliolisk and activates the Absorb Bulb item. Stockpile raises Lanturn’s Defense and Special Defense while Ice Beam is for Coverage.
(M) Heliolisk (Electric/Normal) – Special Sweeper
Ability: Dry Skin
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Sp.Atk / 252 Spe
Timid Nature (+Spe, -Atk)
Item: Absorb Bulb
Electric Terrain / Charge
Hidden Power (Ground)
Electric Terrain powers up Thunder and activates Volt Absorb (???). Hidden Power (Ground) deals with other Electric Pokémon and Dark Pulse for coverage. I left Hyper Voice out even though it is STAB because it hurts Lanturn as well.
Does Electric Terrain indeed activate Volt Absorb? If not, then I’ll change the move with Charge for Heliolisk (unless there’s a better suggestion) and the ability Volt Absorb with Water Absorb for Lanturn.
