oooooook. anyway I just wanted to talk about a neat Cressilia( Legendary psychic pokemon on fullmoon island) moveset I thought of.I'm new to this site so If I don't set this up right feel free to inform me. alright,I actually use this Cressilia on Wi-Fi: A bold natured Cressilia with held Item Leftovers.Ev trained 252hp,252deffense,and 6 sp.def.moveset: calm mind,moonlight,*psychic,and toxic.Now with this move set not to many pokemon survive it! I've tested it on Wi-Fi and battle tower and same victorous result.just recently I changed psychic to future sight,so now it's even more devastating!

PokeGeneral, please read the rules.
We know what Cresselia is, Future Sight is a bad move and you should post in the right format next time. Do it like this.
Cresselia @ Leftovers
EVs: 252 HP/252 Def/4 SDef
- Psychic/Future Sight
- Calm Mind

Here is a moveset that brought me great success during the period that Celebi was considered Gyarados' greatest counter.
Gyarados @ Lum Berry
EVs : 60 HP / 252 Atk / 198 Spe
The idea of this highly successful set, a key player on my ladder record team, was inspired by panamaxis' BounceDos. His main plan was that after Celebi switches in on a DD, he would bounce and scare the Celebi away. However, the number one thing Celebi and other pokemon do to stop a sweep is to status you, plus Celebi has a decent chance to survive a +1 Bounce by about 8%. Lum Berry gives you the extra Dragon Dance you need to sweep, which you can use as they fail to status you, reducing the sweeps fragility and guaranteeing to scare away Celebi or kill it dead. The surprise factor was often huge. Having two Dragon Dances also meant I had much more power to play with once the statuser was gone. The extra speed EVs do not outrun any extra pokemon after one DD but after 2 DDs, it would outrun all Base 100 Scarfers, which was a nice thing to have considering this Gyarados was often able to get a second DD thanks to Lum Berry. It also saved me from random hax and allowed me to set up on Twave Blissey easier.
Its only real flaw was that without Earthquake it couldn't respond to Empoleon, Metagross or Magnezone. Bounce however, gave me a much needed power boost against Latias and the 30% Paralysis rate meant I often took their 'Gyarados counter / Flying resist' out of commission.
It is worth noting that this set is no longer as good as it was due to that fact that, for some reason (perhaps the increase in the amount of SpD bulky Scizor who survive HP Fire and Bounce Gyarados) Celebi has dropped off the charts as a commonly used counter to this thing, replaced by Rotom.

Great. This is what I mean with the rules, Tarquin. I can't suggest any changes, but I might test it out with other EV spreads if you allow it.

Sure thing :)
Like I said, this set really is past its prime with the fall of Celebi use though. Nowadays using Lum Berry on pokemon who often get burned it better, as Rotom has somewhat replaced Celebi as a counter to many of these pokemon. Tyranitar, as being able to set up on Will-o-Wisp Rotom could be just the opportunity you need. Plus, it may allow you to kill off Rotom as it trys to burn you, making the lives of pokemon like Lucario or Gyarados heaps easier.

Tarquin, I liked your Gyarados, Lum is such a great item on it :)
I was trying to make a cool set for Lucario, because I love it, but today isn't that easy to pull off a sweep with the SDLuke, mainly because the lack of speed to hit Salamence, Gliscor, Scarf Rotom and so many other faster pokémons, so I decided to create a new moveset, and here it is:
@ Life Orb
64 HP | 192 Spd | 252 SAtk
Modest (+SAtk, -Atk)
Hidden Power [Ice]
How to use
First of all:
f you want to take full advantage of this set you will need to support it with a Togekiss with BP and Nasty Plot
. This Lucario is designed to take down common counters of the standart SD set. To really takes advantage of this set, you can enter on a choiced move that Luke resists, as a Pursuit, Stone Edge, Bullet Punch, you got it.
If you're using it alone, in the first turn you need to use Agility, in order to have enough speed to KO a lot of usual counters, like Gliscor, Salamence, Rotom-h and other stuff.
Hidden Power Ice is the most useful move, OHKOing Gliscor, Salamence, Flygon and doing a nice damage on Hippowdon. Shadow Ball hits Rotom-H, Celebi, Azelf, Gengar and some other things for SE, and Aura Sphere is used over Close Combat, so Lucario can be Modest and run EVs on SAtk only, without worrying about the Atk.
Some good friends of this set include Latias and Togekiss. Latias has good synergy with Lucario, and it can lure TTar and Scizor, so Lucario can get a safe switch in. Togekiss is a great partner because it can Baton Pass some Nasty Plots, that help Lucario. Luke can really take advantage of the Ice and Rock weakness of Togekiss.
With 192 EVs on Speed Lucario reaches 264 Speed, outspeeding Adamant Gyarados and Jolly Metagross/Breloom, but the most important: after an Agility, it reaches 528, being able to outspeed Timid Scarf Latias and Jolly Scarf Flygon. 252 on SAtk to wreak some havoc, and the remaining EVs on HP to take advantage of the awesome resistances of Lucario.
When using this set, the pokémon that gave me most trouble was by far Gyarados, because with Shadow Ball, Lucario does 30~36% damage on Bulky Gyarados, so even with SR isn't a 2HKO, so you need to pass 2 Nasty Plots to Lucario in order to KO Gyarados. Hippowdon is another problem if you aren't Baton Passing NP from togekiss, because HP Ice does 50~59% to Hippo, but it can OHKO Lucario with EQ.
If you aren't using a Togekiss to suport Lucario, you can move the EVs from the HP to the Atk, change the Nature to Rash and Close Combat > Aura Sphere, to OHKO Blissey.
means 100% OHKO with SR
2. with an Agility, Lucario is faster than an these threats
HP Ice on Standart Gliscor: 508 - 600 (143.50% - 169.49%)
HP Ice on YacheBerry
Pure BP Gliscor
: 202 - 238 (57.06% - 67.23%)
Shadow Ball on ScarfRotom-H: 216 - 256 (89.26% - 105.79%)
Shadow Ball on Standart Rotom-H: 216 - 256 (71.05% - 84.21%)
Shadow Ball on ResTalk Rotom-H: 192 - 226 (63.16% - 74.34%)
Shadow Ball on Standart Latias: 270 - 320 (89.40% - 105.96%)
Aura Sphere on CM Jirachi: 193 - 228 (47.77% - 56.44%)
+2 Aura Sphere on CM jirachi: 384 - 453 (95.05% - 112.13%)
+2 Aura Sphere on Scarf Jirachi: 384 - 453 (106.37% - 125.48%)
Aura Sphere on Standart Vaporeon: 201 - 237 (44.87% - 52.90%)
+2 Aura Sphere on Standart Vaporeon: 400 - 472 (89.29% - 105.36%)
Aura Sphere on WishBlissey: 236 - 278 (36.25% - 42.70%)
HP Ice on Standart Hippo: 210 - 248 (50.00% - 59.05%)
This isn't a gimmick, this set is working better than I was expecting, and the surprise factor is what makes the difference. I'm enjoying using it, he turned alone a 5x1 battle on 1x0, just to demonstrate how powerful it is.
This Lucario works great KOing most of the switch-ins: Rotom-H, Salamence, Gliscor and Latias, the only thing that he can't deal is Gyarados.
Hope you try it and enjoy my creative moveset ;-)

The thing is, by luring in t-tar, you risk being OHKO'ed by a CB earthquake coming off max attack, although if the right prediction is used, togekiss comes in on earthquake and gets a free shot off, seeing as it outspeeds most t-tar variants.

This is a lead which i found very useful for quickly chopping down some of the most common other leads.
Rotom-H @ Choice Specs
EVs: 4 HP/252 Speed/252 Spc. Attack
You would think rotom to be a silly lead, but no. He hits a respectable 298 in speed with 252 and timid, as well as a VERY respectable 463 in spc. Attck. but its not this that lets him act so well as a lead. Rotom resists the ever common Exploding and Fake out lead, as well as taking minimal damage from metagross's primary STAB's. not only this, butn trick those who think themselves mighty, such as smeargle. this guy 2HKOs just about anything sashed, and OHKOs a LOT. he Ohkos Gyarados suprise lead as well as most metagrosses, and sometimes before they can even react. i have found it not uncommon to score 2 suprise KOs with this rotom. there are 3 leads however he has difficulty handling:
1. Tyranitar- After SS, his giant Special Defense wall rotom who carries no Super effective moves. a swap is necessary on the first turn. (although you can ruin T-tars day with trick)
2. Swampert- Carrying only Shadow ball effectively on this beast, your gonna need support. i reccommed scarf HP grass heatran or roserade to prevent swampert walling. Dont trick, it may be a mixpert, just switch immediately.
3.Roserade-with some misshax youll do fine, but its nice to keep a roserade counter stocked on the team for safety. reccommend Heatran or Lum berry aero. (which is almost as silly as this).
so what do you think?

(Sceptile) @ Life Orb
EVs: 30 Atk/228 Spd/252 SAtk
Naive nature (+Spd, -SDef)
- Leaf Storm
- Dragon Pulse
- Hidden Power [Fire]
this set is made to take down pokemons in OU that would normaly stop sceptile,leaf storm is the main atacking move here,and do a great amount of damage to anything that dont resist and is not named blissey,dragon pulse ohko standard naive mence after SR 100% of the time,2hko dragonite and 2hko latias,earthquake might look weird,but after SR damage,it will ohko heatran,the reason for not running focus blast is that the risk of missing is to big for this sceptile,who prefer to work on the safe side,hp fire ohko scizor,ohko foretress,and 2hko skarmory,who otherwise wall this set,this mixed sceptile can work effective in OU and UU,but is made specially for OU
Dec 16th, 2009
thats a good set, but considering the most common tran is scarftran, and scarftran outspeeds this, the point of EQ seems strange since youll only hit non scarferes or if your lucky kill on the switch in though. cool set, not enough OU grass types (is roserade the only one? I think so...)
