Ligma (Slugma) @ Eviolite
Ability: Flame Body
Level: 5
EVs: 36 HP / 36 Def / 196 SpA / 196 SpD / 36 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Yawn
- Clear Smog / Recover
- Fire Blast
- Earth Power

Slugma is pretty bad, I don't recommend it. Eviolite makes you slightly bulkier. Yawn either puts the opponent to sleep or forces a switch, nice when paired with hazard support or the like. Clear Smog helps against opponents that have accumulated stat boosts, like Vullaby. Alternatively, Recover can be used for more bulk. Fire Blast is STAB, and Earth Power helps out against Rock types.

Slugma @ Eviolite
Ability: Flame Body
EVs: 196 HP / 116 Def / 196 SpD
IVs: 0 Atk
Bold / Calm Nature
- Iron Defense
- Amnesia
- Recover
- Flamethrower

Iron Defense and Amnesia, then tank everything. Recover for HP, and Flamethrower to attack.

You gotta be lucky to pull this off, but if you do, then you tank anything.

In LC, 252 EVs is usually a waste. I advise taking Smogon's recommended on the Showdown teambuilder. What Ability?
oh i forgot
