Dry Skin and Fragile Hair (CRMT)

Discussion in '5th Gen In-Game RMT' started by ungulateman, Oct 21, 2010.

    ungulateman Miltank Man!

    Politoed (Kane Toed) @ Life Orb
    Modest / Drizzle
    252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 Spe
    - Hydro Pump
    - Ice Beam
    - Perish Song
    - Hypnosis

    Hydro Pump is for Ninetales, Tyranitar and Hippowdon switch-ins. Ice Beam gets nice coverage, Perish Sing is to stop slow sweeps (CroCune, etc.) and Hypnosis is zzz.

    Kingdra (Hoarse) @ Chesto Berry
    Jolly / Swift Swim
    4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    - Dragon Dance
    - Outrage
    - Waterfall
    - Rest

    This was rather common in the dying days of 4th gen. Fairly straightforward sweeper.

    Ludicolo (Siesta) @ Expert Belt
    Modest / Swift Swim
    24 HP / 252 SpA / 232 Spe
    - Surf
    - Energy Ball
    - Ice Beam
    - Rain Dance

    Straightforward sweeper. Rain Dance if Politoed goes down and they bring in a weather changer.

    Kabutops (Samurai) @ Expert Belt
    Adamant / Swift Swim
    72 HP / 252 Atk / 184 Spe
    - Swords Dance
    - Rock Slide
    - Waterfall
    - Aqua Jet


    Zoroark (Fragile Hair) @ Life Orb
    Timid / Illusion (disguised as Toxicroak normally)
    4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    - Nasty Plot
    - Dark Pulse
    - Grass Knot
    - Focus Blast

    Zoroark is relying on Toxicroak's resistances and weaknesses to get free Nasty Plots up and fire off Focus Blasts or Dark Pulses happily.

    Toxicroak (Needs Lotion) @ Life Orb
    Jolly / Dry Skin
    4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
    - Swords Dance
    - Cross Chop
    - Sucker Punch
    - Taunt

    SD Croak is pretty cool. It shares almost all of its moves with Zoroark, as does my Zoroark set. Dry Skin is a blessing in the rain as well.

    Nice team dude, not much to rate. xD

    You may want to use RD on at least one member of your
    team, in the off-chance that 'Toed goes down and the
    opponent has a weather changer. Ludicolo is a perfect
    candidate, but this is highly situational.

    You may as well run Jolly/Timid on 'Croak and Zoroark
    respectively, as you're already boosting their attacking
    stats, so the extra speed may be of more use.

    Hope this helps. ^^

    Looking good.

    Nothing really to say here. Although, you could do with 1 ground move to kill any electric type (w/ thunder). Even so, only 2 of your team is weak to electric.

    Night burst> Dark pulse on Zoroark. Night burst may have a 5% lower accuracy but it is stronger and can lower the opponents accuracy which would make them switch sometimes.
