While its movepool didn't change TOO significantly (it did get the all powerful power whip) the LC metagame around it sure did. Vulpix got added, and an insta-rain inducer didn't, meaning that Bellsprout can abuse that lovely perma sun. Lets see what it can do shall we. Sunny Days, Happy Days Bellsprout @ Life orb 236 Att / 78 SpA / 196 Spe Chlorophyll Naive / Naughty Power Whip / Seed Bomb/ Giga Drain / Solarbeam HP Fire / Weather Ball Sludge Bomb / Growth Sleep Powder / Growth / Sucker Punch Ahhh yes, a good ol' sun abusing bellsprout, now better than ever. Bellsprout already has rather impressive offenses (75 and 70 ain't bad in LC), and has some powerful moves to abuse with them. Unfortunately for bellsprout, Weather ball and Power whip are an illegal combination, so choose whatever grass move suits your fancy. Seed bomb is the most reliable, and giga drain is slightly weaker, but can heal a bit (not that it will survive much in LC). Solar beam has a bit more use than in standard... just watch out for hippoptoas and snover. HP fire and Weather ball are obvious coverage moves for a sunny day team. The last 2 moves are situational. Sucker punch is a decent priority move, letting you take out mean old scarf ghastly and such (who out speed you if you choose a Naughty nature). Sleep powder can shut down a counter, and help you set up a growth. Sludge bomb is a powerful back up stab. Om nom nom Bellsprout @ Salac berry / Leichi Berry 236 Att / 196 Spe / 78 SpA Gluttony Naive Power Whip Substitute Sludge Bomb / HP Fire Sleep Powder / Swords Dance / HP Fire Not a great set all around, doesn't have that great a coverage either... But I just thought I'd try to show off a way to abuse his new ability gluttony. Pretty simple set, come in on something you can scare off or revenge. Set up a sub, or sleep powder em, and then proceed to get your berry after only one or two subs. Generally not as effective as the first set, but doesn't require the sun to set up, so can be used on other teams. Bellsprout wishes he got nature power. And that's bellsprout. A little interesting addition to the new LC metagame. Hope you enjoyed the synopsis and any comments or feedback is appreciated.
