While the other moves would be easier to use, Teddiursa's lack of speed means a resisted hit still needs to be able to do alot.
Switching into status: w-o-w still affects Teddiursa's attack stat, paralyze still 1/2s Teddiursa's speed, i guess i could run sleep talk etc helping it as a sleep absorber and being at 21 speed with life orb for 2 or 3 turns, poison is like the toxic orb but is very rare in LC, freezhax be gone! >_>
The choice set is there as a strong wallbreaker, which it does terrifyingly well. The scarf is only mentioned if people don't like the loss of health each turn from the Toxic Orb set.
I want to know others point of view before deleting the choice set and adding a life orb set or the equivilent (putting in OO later today)
I was comparing Life Orb to the Choice Set, not the Toxic Orb set because of its potential to absolutely molest the opponent's team if you switch into status (Toxic Spikes has become less rare). And you are essentially trading a .2 multiplier for the ability to not immediately lose to Misdreavus, since it will undoubtedly set up a Substitute on you and proceed to destroy your team.
What is the point of the Scarf set? It is purely outclassed by a lot of Pokemon, even outclassed by somethings that weren't even deemed viable. The Toxic Orb set pulls off the exact same thing, but with a stronger STAB move, and the ability to beat Misdreavus.
While the Band set isn't "outclassed" by the Toxic Orb set it is purely inferior to everything else with a Choice Band. A Life Orb set would "wall break" actually better than the CB set because it can switch attacks (like it can switch from Return to Close Combat to hit Bronzor, or switch to Crunch to hit Misdreavus who think they can set up on you). All in all, I think it makes much more sense to use a Life Orb set over the Choice Set, if anything.
I'd be fine with only having one set too be honest.
Anyway, wait for other people's opinions I guess.
