Stealth rock

offensive, but awesome that it has defense too :) stealth rock helps along with being able to switch into dragon to do avalanche, chances are i go second ne ways

Salamence@ Choice Specs
Trait: Intimidate
EVs: 252 Sp Atk / 252 Spd / 6 HP
Modest Nature (+Sp Atk, -Atk)
-Draco Meteor
-Hydro Pump
-Dragon Pulse

Rhyperior@ Life Orb
Trait: Solid Rock
EVs: 188 HP / 92 Atk / 216 Def / 20 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -Sp Atk)
-Stone Edge
-Sleep Talk

Your team wanted something to take status.

Skarmory@ Leftovers
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 6 Atk
Impish Nature
-Drill Peck/Brave Bird

DP and Roost are standard, personally I like Brave Bird as it puts a big dent into Gyara and beats Taunting versions with no Waterfall who think they can Taunt you. Roost > Toxic 9 times out of 10 as well.

Starmie@ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 172 HP / 216 Sp Atk / 120 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
-Rapid Spin

Wants a special wall *coughblisscough* and someone else can round off a nice bog team for you to start competitive play with.


LOL, Sup?
"Can i have a to go order?

'Sure Hon, what would u like!?'

"I'd like a standard set with a side order of copy. Extra OU on the side. And a nice glass RMT that has already been done, please!"

'Oh sure, so you would like a Weaveile/Dos, Mence (extra CS), a standard spinner, a Pink wall, a STalker and spiker to go right?'

"Sounds good"


throw up a weavile/Dos set for leading, a blissey standard set and he can start building


the q

Choice Scarf leads tend to do well. You could try Heracross, Medicham, the list goes on.

what about galllade would tgallade be any good for a lead?

i was thinking: Gallade- ad@ choice scarf

what do u guys think??

Medicham@ Choice Band
Trait: Pure Power
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 6 HP
Adamant Nature

Sky Uppercut
Psycho Cut
Ice Punch
Bullet Punch

You can go Scarf but I don't like it, Bullet Punch kills Weavile anyway, though I'm not 100% sure. You could be boring and go Scarf with Sky Uppercut/Psycho Cut/Ice Punch/Thunderpunch, but you don't hit as hard even if you've got better coverage.

Blissey@ Leftovers
Trait: Natural Cure
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 6 Sp Atk
Bold Nature

Seismic Toss
Ice Beam

There you go, one nice and bog team: Medicham/Rhyperior/Salamence/Skarmory/Blissey/Starmie
