Only problem there being that Charizard is bad, any way you look at it.
Hey guys, another generic Gem set that works:
Breloom @ Fighting Gem
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spd / 4 Def
Adamant Nature / Jolly Nature
- Bullet Seed
- Mach Punch
- Swords Dance
This is a really great alternative to the standard Life Orb because it lets you kill stuff that you normally wouldn't have been able to kill with LO. Not going to post calcs right now because I feel the level of alcohol in my system would make them incorrect, but I know the Gem is really helpful in a bunch of common scenarios (free one-time CB never disappoints), and the loss of power from Bullet Seed isn't very noticeable since you're mostly spamming Mach Punch anyways. Give it a shot etc.
