Scald is good too if you want the 30% burn.

The all famous CroCune! Given this name because it was used by the battler Cromat in Gen III.

Suicune @ Leftovers
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 212 Def / 8 Spd / 36 SpA
Bold Nature
- Calm Mind
- Rest
- Sleep Talk
- Surf / Scald

Calm Mind will boost your Special Attack and Special Defense. Rest will heal you, and Sleep Talk will either attack your opponent or set up even more (but there's a 33% chance that you'll try to Rest again :/). Surf is for more power, and use Scald if you want the 30% burn.

It's not a 25% chance, it's a 33% chance because you can't use Sleep Talk again when you're using Sleep Talk leaving only Calm Mind, Rest, and Surf/Scald to be able to be used.
Oh right. Thanks

OU CroCune Remix

Suicune @ Lum Berry
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD
Bold Nature
- Scald
- Calm Mind
- Ice Beam
- Rest

This set is based on the OU CroCune set. Check the explanation of the OU CroCune on Smogon, but here I will explain the modifications. I switch out Ice Beam for Sleep Talk because Suicune will now have more coverage and can hit Pokémon that would normally wall this set , such as Grass types. The Lum Berry makes the opponent waste a turn doing status, while also curing Suicune of any status it has, along with allowing Suicune to instantly recover from sleep, though you can still use Leftovers or a Chesto Berry instead.

If you doubt this set, I don't blame you but FYI, I've won numerous battles with this set, even surviving Leaf Storm Contrary Serperior.

Curse Suicune = CurseCune

Suicune @ Leftovers
Ability: Inner Focus
EVs: 236 HP / 252 Atk / 20 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Curse
- Liquidation
- Avalanche/Ice Fang
- Extreme Speed

Curse boosts Suicune's Attack and Defense stat, but lowers its speed. However, in Gen 8, it got access to a priority move, Extreme Speed. Liquidation is STAB and has a chance to lower the opponent's Defense stat. You could use Avalanche if you happen to use Curse multiple times and your opponent attacks you, or you could run Ice Fang.

Suicune @ Leftovers
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Spa / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
- Scald
- Rest
- Sleep Talk
- Ice Beam

I use specially defensive Suicune because Scald helps physical defence with a burn.

Good set. I use this myself. The special defense makes perfect sense with correlation with the BURN from Scald.

Suicune @ Leftovers
Ability: Pressure
EVs: 252 HP / 156 Def / 4 SpA / 96 SpD (Physically Defensive) 252 HP / 96 Def / 4 SpA / 256 SpD (Specially Defensive)
Relaxed Nature
- Protect
- Toxic
- Scald / Ice Beam
- Aqua Ring

I love Toxic stalling, and this Suicune set gets it done. Protect and Toxic are pretty standard, Scald is damage with the chance to burn stuff that you can't poison, though you can run Ice Beam if you hate Toxicroak. Aqua Ring seems questionable, but on top of Leftovers recovery, you heal 12% with an Aqua Ring. If you then protect on the following turn, it's another 12% heal, totaling for a free 24% healing on something as bulky as Suicune.

As for the EVs, they can take an attack from both sides pretty well with some specialization in one side. Notably, the physically defensive one only gets 2KO'd by a Honchkrow at +1.

Just a quick reply of this set doing work.

Good set, but it has a flaw in it. Either replace the item with chesto berry or lum, Or replace haze with sleep talk, Because otherwise Your suicune will be asleep and unable to attack.

Suicune @ Leftovers
Ability: Inner Focus
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature

Inner Focus protects it from flinching. Blizzard may freeze the target(s). Hydro Pump is STAB. Mirror Coat retaliates 2x power. Air Slash has a flinching chance.

OU suicune? It’s RU. Fast special Suicune is...weird, to say the least. Mirror Coat and Air Slash aren’t that good, and Blizzard is outclassed by Ice Beam.
