Abomasnow HP: 90 Atk: 92 Def: 75 SpA: 92 SpD: 85 Spe: 60 Singles Sets Abomasnow @ Focus Sash 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpA nature: Quiet ability: Snow Warning -Blizzard -Ice Shard -Grass Knot -Hidden Power Fire / Earthquake With a Sash, Abomasnow makes a great lead, able to underspeed and set up weather before every other common weather inducer, and works especially well against opposing Sash users with Hail breaking Sashes and Ice Shard finishing them off. Blizzard and Grass Knot have excellent coverage together, while Hidden Power Fire hits the Steel-types that resist both attacks. Abomasnow @ Choice Scarf 4 Atk / 252 SpA / 252 Spe nature: Hasty ability: Snow Warning -Blizzard -Grass Knot -Hidden Power Fire -Earthquake With this set, Abomasnow aims to do as much damage as possible while retaining the ability to change the weather, stopping opposing weather teams in their tracks. Blizzard and Grass Knot are Abomasnow's powerful dual STAB, while Hidden Power Fire hits Scizor and Ferrothorn for super effective damage. Earthquake hits Heatran and Magnezone for an OHKO. Doubles Sets Abomasnow @ Choice Scarf 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 SpA nature: Timid ability: Snow Warning -Blizzard -Grass Knot -Hidden Power Fire -Ice Shard Blizzard and Grass Knot have excellent coverage together, and a fast Blizzard off of a normally slow Pokemon can be unexpected and quite powerful. Hidden Power Fire OHKOes Scizor and does good damage to Metagross. Ice Shard may seem an unorthodox choice, but priority is always useful, and Ice Shard can take out Yanmega no matter how many Speed Boosts it has. Abomasnow @ Focus Sash / Iron Ball / Ice Gem 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpA nature: Quiet ivs: 0 Spe ability: Snow Warning -Blizzard -Grass Knot -Ice Shard / HP Fire -Protect Blizzard and Grass Knot have excellent coverage together. Ice Shard hits the multitude of faster Pokemon, while HP Fire allows Abomasnow to do reasonable damage to Steel-types such as Scizor and Metagross. Focus Sash guarantees Abomasnow stays alive for at least one turn despite its many weaknesses, but Iron Ball virtually guarantees that Hail will stay up, with Abomasnow being the slowest weather starter outside of Hippowdon. However, Iron Ball means Abomasnow speed ties with Iron Ball Tyranitar, which makes Iron Ball slightly less useful. Ice gem makes Blizzard ridiculously powerful and allows Abomasnow to take out Dragon-types with Ice Shard more easily. Steel-types such as Metagross can easily take Abomasnow down with their STAB attacks while taking little damage in return, so Pokemon such as Chandelure which can set up Trick Room and hit Steel-types hard, or Garchomp, which can use its STAB Earthquake, make excellent partners.
