OK Beedrill is know as a tragic case of a bug sweeper who never really tried, which is sad since I quite like him on the field of NU. I will go through some things to show off Beedrill in anyway I can. hope you enjoy.
Summary; a classic NU bug sweeper that has been around for ages....and still fails to do much,its really not fit for major battles. Although it seems to become ever so slightly more effective it is still shadowed by most of the NU tier....and most Pokemon otherwise. Its not all bad news, but it still shoudn't be used without a genuine purpose
Pros: although its stats are pretty poor, its attack power isn't too bad and its movepool is actually rather decent.
Cons: poor typing, low stats, loads of counters,KO'ed in a heartbeat, I could go on and on. but I'm not going to, because I'm supposed to be trying to help beedrills chances....that's going well...
I created a few movesets to maximize its chances and give you some choice in the matter.
Beedrill @ Life Orb
EVs: 252 Spd / 252 Atk / 4 HP
- Drill Run
- Poison Jab
- Brick Break/Endeavour
This set is basically a baton pass receiver. Ninjask remains in NU, so if you can this set is made to take advantage of him. Drill run makes sure it's not completely defenceless against fire types. And a mix of other moves will provide a good battle coverage. So it could be worse.
Beedrill @ Focus Sash
EVs: 150 Spd / 150 Atk / 208 HP
- Agility/Swords Dance
- Poison Jab/Toxic Spikes/Toxic
- Brick Break/Drill Run
OK so this takes advantage of the fact that it can no longer be KOed instantly. It's your choice out of agility or swords dance. its EV's look odd but it does help with it trying to last a while.
Beedrill @ Black Sludge
EVs: 150 Spd / 70 Atk / 208 HP / 80 SDef
- Toxic Spikes/Toxic
- Endeavor/Drill run
- Brick Break
This may look odd, but Beedrill is very opportunistic is the right situations. Toxic spikes will make your opponent less willing to switch into something more dangerous, while Toxic+black sludge+Protect is pretty good too.The rest is just too make sure its not countered or walled to easily.
Right that's it. My analysis on Beedrill is complete. I hope this may of helped in deciding if Beerill is worth it. Hope you like!
