The Point of Origin
I need a moveset for him can you help me out please?
Reminds me of an Umbreon guide I did once, so let's just do some copypasta:
Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)
- Mean Look
- Baton Pass
Umbreon is a cool and popular Eeveelution. But one mistake that many new trainers make is teaching it attacks like Bite and Faint Attack, hoping to turn it into an attacker. However, this won't work since Umbreon's Attack and Special Attack stats are very bad.
Instead, take advantage of Umbreon's excellent defenses and use it as a support Pokémon. Umbreon is the only Pokémon that can learn the awesome Mean Look + Baton Pass combo. Use Mean Look to trap the opponent and use Baton Pass to transfer the trapping effect to another Pokémon on your team. Mean Look won't work if you switch out, but it will still work if you use Baton Pass. If you use this correctly, you can guarantee defeating at least one Pokémon on the opponent's team. For example, if Umbreon Mean Looks a Charizard, you can Baton Pass to a Water-type. Charizard can't switch out, so it can't do anything to prevent your Water-type from KOing it.
Umbreon is great with healing moves and Wish is one of the best. Not only does Wish heal itself, but it can also be used to heal other Pokémon on the team. You don't need to Baton Pass it. Simply switch out after using Wish and it will automatically heal the next Pokémon that comes in. Moonlight is also a good healing move, but not quite as useful as Wish since it can't heal other team members and it also loses effectiveness during Rain Dance.
Taunt is there because any Pokémon with Roar or Whirlwind will screw up Umbreon's Mean Look + Baton Pass strategy. Taunt prevents the opponent from using non-damaging moves like Roar/Whirlwind, but it only lasts for two turns so be prepared to Baton Pass right after.
Toxic is for in-game where Taunt is less useful due to no opponent using phazing moves.
Beware of Heracross, Machamp, and other strong Fighting-types. But other than that, Umbreon's great defenses and healing abilities will make it tough to take down.
Mean look + Ingame = pretty useless
- Baton Pass / Toxic
They don't switch enough to sacrifice a move slot for Mean Look.Aldred FellBlade said:mean look rocks ingame! you mean look them then toxic them, they are powerless to stop you unless, they are a blissey with aromatherapy/heal bell.
That doesn't happen enough to worry about either.Aldred FellBlade said:and also, if your set dosnt have toxic, what damage can it do? nothing. lets say something mean looked you? what could you do? nothing. apart from set up a sbstitute then wish yourself to full health, it would be a stall war.
you can pass a wish just by switching. and umbreon is pretty useless without meanlook and toxic, due to the fact in the BF, trainers do switch.switch
it isn't a big deal to sacrifice curses and subs plus you can pass on a wish
he still rates them though. but yeh, he prfers competeitive[Kingdra];5414703 said:F_M doesnt like in-game team rates.
