Alcremie (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Aroma Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Calm Mind
- Recover
- Dazzling Gleam
- Mystical Fire

Calm Mind allows Alcreamie to raise its Special Attack and Special Defense making it harder for special attackers to kill while also allowing it to do tons of damage. You want to try to get up a lot of Calm Minds. Recover is for healing. Dazzling Gleam is your STAB and Mystical Fire is very nice coverage. Bold with 252 in Defense allows you to survive more physical hits. Leftovers allows you to regain some extra health each turn but if you want you can try giving it a Kee Berry to raise defense and make it even tankier. If possible you should go with Gmax form.

Oh man I’ve been waiting for this!

Alcremie-Gmax (F) @ Leftovers
Ability: Sweet Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Dazzling Gleam
- Calm Mind
- Recover
- Mystical Fire

Dazzling Gleam will be her Fairy move of choice, Calm Mind for making Alcremie extremely strong and bulky, Recover to get back health and Mystical Fire for Steel coverage. It’s at least neutral against Poison but with Psychic, it’s completely walled by Steel types like Copperajah.

Why drain punch?
I was aiming for additional type coverage and in limited testing fared well. I was between Drain Punch, Dazzling Gleam and Draining Kiss; the last two fit the build better overall, so I might still change it.
Try Mystical Fire instead.

Doubles UU


(You can use any Alcremie form, it makes no difference.)

Alcremie-Mint-Cream (F) @ Sitrus Berry
Ability: Sweet Veil / Aroma Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Decorate
- Protect
- Dazzling Gleam
- Helping Hand

Decorate allows Alcremie to give its ally a free +2 boost to both their attack and special attack, which is absolutely insane. Not to mention you can spam it on your ally and get them all the way to +6 attack and special attack. Also, Decorate ignores protect, so Alcremie can give its ally the boosts without fear of them getting knocked out before the turn ends. Protect gives Alcremie a turn of safety, which is really nice since an opponent might try to take out Alcremie as quick as possible to stop it from making its ally incredibly strong. Dazzling Gleam is STAB and causes spread damage. Helping Hand makes your ally's next attack even more powerful. Sitrus Berry gives Alcremie instant recovery which, in doubles, is better than the passive recovery provided by Leftovers due to the much faster pace. Either of Alcremie's abilities can work for this set. Sweet Veil keeps Alcremie and it's ally safe from Chlorophyll Venusaur's Sleep Powder (and the rare Hypnosis from Politoed and Ninetales but don't worry about those), while Aroma Veil prevents Taunt users from shutting down Alcremie's Decorate shenanigans.

Short replay showing the power of Decorate Alcremie:
Decorate boosted Victini in sun. Yes I know this is kinda low ladder and I didn't show Sweet Veil. I was on my testing alt. Oh and I finally got a better replay after not using it for a month.

Gen 8 1v1
Mental Cakedown (Alcremie) @ Kebia Berry / Babiri Berry / Chesto Berry
Ability: Aroma Veil
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Stored Power / Dazzling Gleam
- Recover / Rest
- Acid Armor
- Calm Mind

Alright, you get the nickname. Mental Breakdown=Mental Cakedown. Stored Power has 360 power at maximum boosts, which is pretty crazy. Even without full boosts, it still does a lot. The only downside of it is you cannot hit dark types. Alternatively, you could use Dazzling Gleam which hits everything, albeit not as hard. Recover heals you. Rest means you are fodder, but it removes status. Acid Armor boosts its bad defense. Calm Mind allows it to get tankier on the special side while boosting its damage. Aroma Veil is great because without it, Taunt would stop it cold. The EVs are your bread and butter EVs that minimize the damage taken from physical attacks. Kebia / Babiri Berry help it set up on things that hit it super effectively. Chesto Berry makes it so when it uses Rest, it wakes up instantly.
