Archeops (Rock Gem) Set: Head Smash/Stone Edge Acrobatics Earthquake/Earth Power/Focus Blast U-Turn Item: Rock Gem (to power up Head Smash/Stone Edge and give Acrobatics 110 Base Power after it is used) Nature: Adamant(to hit as hard as you possibly can)/Jolly(if you really need the speed)/Naive(If you want that extra speed but also want to go mixed) EV Spread:252Atk/252Spd/4HP Why this set absolutely deserves to be on the site: -Rock Gem boosted Head Smash OHKO's many Pokémon in RU. -If the matchup is unfavorable, it can U-Turn out into a counter. -People don't expect a Rock Gem boosted Head Smash to the face! -It puts a LOT of pressure on the opponent. Additional Comments: -Most of the time, after firing off a Head Smash, Archeops can live the recoil with over half HP to deliver another deadly blow or U-Turn out. -On the switch, Head Smash, followed up by a now 110 BPWR Acrobatics, can 2HKO one of RU's best physical walls, Torterra. -Can run Focus Blast or Earth Power as a coverage move to take down the biggest physical wall in the tier: Steelix. If the user of Archeops chooses to run Focus Blast on his/her Archeops, then he/she should replace the usual nature(s) with a Naive nature. Teammates & Counters: -It is almost a must for the user of Archeops to pair the Rock/Flying prehistoric beast with a spinner, as Stealth Rocks will quickly wear Archeops down into Defeatist range, especially after firing off a Head Smash. -Pairing a special attacker to counter some of the Pokémon that wall Archeops really helps it out. A good Pokémon for this would be a Water-type like Slowking, Ludicolo, Lapras, etc. -If Archeops doesn't carry Focus Blast/Earth Power, Steelix walls it easily and knocks it into Defeatist range with an Iron Head. Only dedicated physical walls will be able to stomach Archeops' hits. -Rather than walling it, if you can knock Archeops into Defeatist range, then Archeops will no longer be a problem. Stealth Rock is the best example of this, as after three switch-ins, Archeops will be effectively neutered for the rest of the match. If you want to keep them up, I would suggest packing a Golurk on your team, as it can set up Stealth Rocks as well as spinblock. Thank you for reading my (Rock Gem) Archeops set idea thread.
