If someone mentions the other Stockpile set over this one I will kill myself. That set doesn't have near enough viability as this one.
Lileep @ Eviolite
Trait: Storm Drain
EVs: 88 SDef / 184 SAtk / 236 Def
- Giga Drain
: Dual-Defensive Wall
What it does
: Lemme just state for the record that Lileep has phenomenal defenses, complimented by it's wonderful typing. This makes it good as either a physically-defensive or specially-defensive wall. This set tries to make the best of both worlds (lol Miley Cyrus). First off, one questions why the use of 236 Def EVs instead of 236 SDef EVs. This set blows the most common weakness Lileep has (Fighting) to shame. Stockpile is the fun part of this set. Lileep's defenses with the current EVs and Eviolite are are 27 Def stat and 24 SDef stat. One Stockpile boost? It's now 40 Def stat and 36 SDef stat. Have fun taking this bissh down. Recover is necessary to keep Lileep alive, even with overpowered defenses. Giga Drain is wonderful, as it has STAB and it heals, which is fabulous. AncientPower, despite the low PP turn-off, is another good STAB. In addition to this, if Lileep gets the all-stat boost, holy shit and save the plunger; SAtk tops 21, beating even Abra. Def/SDef skyrocket to 54/48 after a Stockpile boost. It's like hell in rock. I mean, seriously. Lileep is horrifying when one sees this kind of potential.
: Lileep does well on it's own, but a team is 6 Pokes, not one. Ferroseed, Bronzor, Magnemite, and other steel types (bar Aron) are a problem, resisting both STABs. Therefore, anything with access to Fire-type moves are good (Houndour is the best bet). Other Lileep are a small problem too, so Scraggy, Mienfoo, or Timburr could be helpful here.
What Counters It
: Lileep's lackluster speed is it's downfall. The best way to take it down is to hit it with a super-effective move before it sets up, or use priority. Mienfoo is bad if it gets any strong hits before the boost, and U-Turn tends to leave a decent-sized dent in Lileep's health. Croagunk can Vacuum Wave this to hell-and-back because of the weaker SDef stat, but once again, the boost makes it hard. Finally, Magnemite has a good chance against it, since both STABs are resisted and it can hit with Flash Cannon.
Any Additional Info
: God, if it only had Baton Pass. Giving these monstrous defense boosts to a sweeper is gg right there. Sadly, it doesn't, so there's nothing much else that can be used in place of this set.
