I want to use this Pokémon as a OU competitive lead:
• Primeape @ Choice Scarf
• Vital Spirit
• Adamant nature, 154 Spe / 252 Atk / 104 HP
- Close Combat
- Ice Punch
The Choice Scarf with 154 Spe Adamant lets him outspeed standard Aerodactyl lead, and the HP EVs lets him survive an Earthquake wich makes me kill it with Ice Punch the second turn.
Vital Spirit is usefull when opposing Roserade lead.
Close Combat is STAB, Ice Punch for coverage - mostly against Aerodactyl - and Earthquake for more coverage - like Jirachi. U-turn for Azelf leads.
It switches away and can be used later in the game.
Do you see problems? I'm really excited to work with this guy.
Thanks in advance.
You might as well as go all-out Stall / Tanking if you're wanting to abuse Pressure. A CroCune is great for this job.
• Suicune @ Leftovers
• Bold Nature (if you will change it)
• 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spe (should you use EVs)
~ Calm Mind
~ Sleep Talk
Very simple. Since your set is virtually identical, I need not explain it except that Sleep Talk is used over Ice Beam so that you're not useless while asleep. The Bold nature is to boost up your Def, which is left alone by Calm Mind. The EVs boost your Def further while maximising your HP for great bulk.
what do you guys think for a heart gold arcanine moveset?
