    Hey, just starting a thread to get people to post there best or favorite "one man army" that they use no matter the situation. For me it has to be Umbreon. He has always been my favorite, and no matter what the battle is I always bring him. So here he is...

    Umbreon w/leftovers
    Impish nature
    Faint Attack


    Please rate/edit/attack him as much as you want, but I'm sure I will have a good reason for everything I have done with this Umbreon, so please try me and post some better options for him, but I'm pretty sure none exist.

    Also, please give your favorite and it's stats/moveset, and I will try to make it better, I bet I can!

    Mine is my blaziken. 301 hp, 314 atk, 174 def, 215 sp atk, 155, sp def, 277 spd (I don't go for max iv's), ability is speed boost, Jolly nature, Attacks are Hi jump kick and Flare blitz for powerful stab attacks, rock slide for flying types and other types that don't resist it and for double battles (it's does decent damage to everyone that don't resist it), last move is protect for speed boost ( if I had working wi-fi to get it) and if I want to use surf and keep it out on the field without taking damage. Rock slide wold have been thunder punch but i don't have a second ds to transfer over the blaziken that does have it. I like like thunder punch over rock slide cause it hits both flying and water for massive damage (two of blazikens main weaknesses).
  3. I always use my modest Rotom with Discharge, Shadow Ball, Substitute, and whatever form-specific move it has. I know it's not the best moveset, but it's EV trained, and it does pretty well since I don't generally battle those Smogon expert people. I should definitely replace Substitute with something else though.

    my favourite one man pokemon are tyranitar and jirachi. tyranitar can use a choice scarf set to rip through heaps of pokemon and jirachi also has countless sets to use.

    Sceptile @Petaya Berry



    EVs: 4 HP/252 Sp. Atk./252 Spd.

    Leaf Storm/Energy Ball
    Dragon Pulse
    Focus Blast/HP Ice

    Sub until Petaya Berry activates and Unburden takes effect. Then Leaf Storm the life out of everything. Anything which resists it will just be pelted by something else for major damage. And Sceptile will almost outspeed everything. One man army, meet one man Mordor.

    I have a similar Umbreon, except for Payback and Wish instead of Faint Attack and Moonlight.

    zerofield i miss miror

    @darkside4 is there a reason you run faint attack over payback on a curse set? What with evasion clause you shouldn't even need the no miss effect lul

    Also you should be running Max HP and sdef instead of Max defense. You have curse to post defense and HP is just so much more important for a wall... lol.

    The rest looks fine (smirk)

    Couple things though man. I only play on Pokemon battle revolution wifi, and there are no clauses or restrictions on that, and so there are double teamers, so I would definitely choose faint attack over payback because of the accuracy and more pp.

    Also, I have tried many combinations of Umbreons, 12 to be exact, and the one I have chosen is perfect because of how I fight on Pokemon battle revolution. Most attacks that are used against Umbreon are in fact physical, more specifically they are physical fighting skills. I got high defense so even if I do take a hit without any curses up, I won't take too much that I can be finished off the next turn. I got high special defense to ward off any other attacks, most of which are neutral towards Umbreon, so I can wall those rather easily. The only problem I face is against a yanmega, who is bug special attack, but that is why I have a honchkrow, weavile, and houndoom on my team to counter.

    Also, the hp or defenses thing is kind of preferential, and I just like having higher defense than hp, because it really doesn't make much of a difference.

    I' not disagreeing with you or anything, it's just I don't fight the way a lot of people do, and the people on pokemon battle revolution "aren't as kind" with their clauses and restrictions, so I just have to watch out for everything, that's why I have my Umbreon the way I do, but I appreciate the comment.
