Snover @ Eviolite
Trait: Snow Warning
EVs: 248 HP / 8 SAtk / 252 SDef
- Leech Seed
- Giga Drain
With Hail newly reintroduced in NU, Snover is a must-have on your Hail team. Many many people think that he's dead weight on your team, and I thought that too until using this set. Snover actually has this very small niche of being capable of absorbing most Special attacks. He can succesfully counter Special Samurott and Ludicolo, as Ludi can cause problems to Hail teams by setting up Rain. Ludicolo has to use non-STAB Ice Beam which is neutral on Snover, so it doesn't do too much. SubSeed is a common strategy and can help my sweepers, and is deadly paired with StallRein. Blizzard is mandatory on him, while Giga Drain is STAB. The EVs and Nature have been tailored to make him resistant on the Special side. Feel free to use this Snover set on your Hail team!
