    [SET COMMENTS]

    <p>This Bronzor, while unorthodox, has the ability to single-handedly remove some of the biggest defensive threats in Little Cup. Because Bronzor is immune to Toxic, it can out-stall these defensive threats by using Toxic to poison the opponent and then using Recycle to get its Oran Berry back after it is consumed. Because healing is very important for this set, it is imperative that Bronzor uses Recycle immediately after Oran Berry triggers and avoid having it removed via Knock Off at all costs. Psychic is Bronzor's most reliable STAB attack, and Earthquake is for coverage. However, Stealth Rock is an option over Earthquake if the rest of your team lacks it. Levitate is much better than Heatproof, as it allows Bronzor to beat Drilbur and Hippopotas without any trouble.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>Because this set does not have an Eviolite to boost its defenses, Bronzor's EVs maximize its HP and Defense with the rest of the EVs going to the rest of its stats. Since this set loses to Fighting- and Fire-types, its teammates should be able to cover these weaknesses. Since Bronzor will not do well against offensive Pokemon, precaution should be taken to the likes of Mienfoo and Larvesta—two Pokemon that can easily beat this set. Taillow and Croagunk are great teammates to remove the former, while Staryu and Chinchou are great checks to the latter. If Earthquake is not used on Bronzor, Diglett is almost a required partner for killing Stunky and other Pokemon that resist or are immune to Psychic.</p>

    Before you even start writing this, I'm going to say that I don't think that this is at all viable. The power creep of Gen 5 in all metagames, especially Little Cup means the Bronzor, who is neutral to the common fighting type moves and very susceptible to stuff like Volcarona and even Chinchou who are both rising in usage make it very difficult for this set to be at all effective. That being said, I only tested this minimally and feel free to prove my wrong, but I think this is not even worth writing as it kind of sucks.

    I know this is good from playing against one, it functions really well against defensive teams...

    stamp (1/2)

    Draco knows a lot about this set so just take his opinion on it I guess.

    There should only be 4 EVs in Attack, not 8

    <p>This Bronzor set, while seeming a little unorthodox at first, has the ability to single-handedly remove some of the biggest defensive threats in Little Cup;, namely Lileep and Hippopotas, as well as the Frillish and Slowpoke that do not carry Scald. Because Bronzor is immune to Toxic, it can out-stall these defensive threats by using Toxic to poison the opponent then and using Recycle to get its Oran Berry back after it is consumed. Because healing is very important to this set, it is imperative that Bronzor use Recycle immediately after Oran Berry triggers, and avoid being having it Knock Offed knocked off by Mienfoo and other Pokemon at all costs. Psychic is Bronzor's most reliable STAB attack, while and Earthquake is for coverage. However, Stealth Rock is always an option over Earthquake if the rest of the team lacks it. As an ability, Levitate is much better than Heatproof, as it allows Bronzor to so it can beat Drilbur and Hippopotas without any trouble.</p>

    [ADDITIONAL COMMENTS]

    <p>Because this set doesn't have an Eviolite to boost its defenses, Bronzor's EVs maximize its HP and Defense, with the rest going to the rest of its stats. Because Since this set loses to Fighting-types and Fire-types, its teammates should be able to assist these weaknesses. Since Bronzor will not do well against offensive Pokemon, precautions should be taken to the likes of Mienfoo and Larvesta-two Pokemon that can easily beat this set. Taillow and Croagunk are great teammates to remove the likes of the former, while Staryu and Chinchou are great checks to the latter. If Earthquake is not used on Bronzor Without Earthquake, Diglett is almost a required partner for killing Stunky and other Pokemon vulnerable to Ground-type attacks.</p>[/box]
