I was reading an article on Smogon and i read something on Clamperl. Amazing boosts with Shell Smash + DeepSeaTooth!


Clamperl @ DeepSeaTooth
Trait: Rattled
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 252 SpD/ 4 HP
Timid Nature (+SpD,-Atk)

  • Shell Smash
  • Surf
  • Ice Beam
  • Hidden Power Electric

One Shell Smash and Clamperl's Special Attack skyrockets to over 900. Insane boost. Surf is for STAB and Ice Beam is for Coverage against Grass types. HP Electric is to cover as much types as possible.


Cinccino @ King's Rock/ Life Orb
Trait: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 SpD/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Return
  • Rock Blast
  • Bullet Seed
  • Knock Off

King's Rock or Life Orb? Life Orb is for higher power but King's Rock + Skill Link is very powerful, making the foe flinch almost all the time with Rock Blast. Return is STAB and a powerful attack. Bullet Seed + Skill Link is also very powerful and Knock Off destroys Eviolite sets and Choice items.


Eelektross @ Leftovers
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 Atk/ 252 Def/ 4 HP
Adamant Nature (+Atk,-SAtk)

  • Coil
  • Wild Charge
  • Dragon Tail
  • Brick Break

How many Pokemon are Electric types and have Levitate? None. Well... Except Eelektross's pre-evolutions. Coil is needed here for raising Accuracy. Wild Charge for STAB and most of the recoil is covered by Leftovers. Dragon Tail for dragging another Pokemon out and it is better than Roar because it does some damage. Perfect with Stealth Rock or Spikes or Toxic Spikes. Brick Break is for covering as many types as possible.


Garbodor @ Black Sludge
Trait: Stench
EVs: 252 HP/ 252 Def/ 4 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def,-SAtk)

  • Rock Blast
  • Gunk Shot
  • Spikes
  • Toxic Spikes

This guy is my Stench + Rock Blast= Big % of Flinch Abuser. Best Stench user in the Pokemon world with Rock Blast. Gunk Shot is for STAB. At the beginning, he was my Spikes + Toxic Spikes set upper combo'ed with Eelektross's Dragon Tail. He can set up layers of Spikes and still lose very little amount of HP.


Lunatone @ Light Clay
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 252 SAtk/ 252 SDef/ 4 SpD
Modest Nature (+SAtk,-Atk)

  • Psychic
  • Stealth Rock
  • Light Screen
  • Reflect

He is my lead and my Dual Screener. Screens are here for nullifying Clamperl's Shell Smash Defense lowerings. Stealth Rock must be on every lead and with Garbodor who sets up layers of Spikes and Toxic Spikes and Eelektross who uses Dragon Tail, the Pokemon who gets dragged out will be hit very hard. Psychic is for STAB.


Quagsire @ Leftovers
Trait: Unaware
EVs: 252 Atk/ 120 HP/ 136 SDef
Impish Nature (+Def,+SAtk)

  • Waterfall
  • Earthquake
  • Stockpile
  • Recover

I was hoping this guy would be NU. He is. Waterfall is for STAB and so is Earthquake. Recover is for recovering HP and i trust Stockpile since i use it on my Hippowdon in my OU Team. Trust me, if you ask somebody who already battled me on OU how annoying was my Stockpile-Odon, he will say '' Annoying as hell! ''.

Thanks for reading this team and thanks in advance for answering!

Well, thanks!
One not the other. If you go with my Thunder Wave strategy you can't use Toxic Spikes for obvious reasons. I prefer the Thunder Wave thing. I never really liked Toxic Spikes in NU.
Awesome team here, nicely planned out. If I were a bit smarter in the metagame I'd help.
I'd answer this but no pc
Meh, too bad. When are you getting back your PC?
