Lead Type: Offensive Lead
What it does:
Kill shit. On a serious note though, Braviary is an excellent lead as it has the ability to force switches and an insane attack to destroy a lot of Pokemon.
Why it is good:
Again, has the ability to force switches just because it is Braviary. U-Turn is useful to get out of disadvantageous situations. STAB Brave Bird and Return hurt HARD, and Superpower hurts Rocks and Steel Types. Choice sets are best for leading with the USA bird.
What counters it:
Regirock. Big f**kin asshole right here. Base 200 Defense is trollish and makes sure Braviary gets wrecked by a Stone Edge or Rock Slide. Faster Pokemon with SE moves also suck. But the second statement can be said for basically anything.
EDIT: Thought this was gonna be a more popular thread. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.
