    Here's one that will annoy everything ever.

    Blissey (F) @ Leftovers
    Trait: Serene Grace
    EVs: 128 SAtk / 128 SDef / 128 Spd / 116 HP
    Modest Nature
    - Softboiled
    - Minimize
    - Charge Beam
    - Ice Beam

    Sorry if the EVs look really weird, but I'm still working them out. This guy is a monster though. Minimize/Softboiled is just evil. Pair it with Serene Grace giving 100% SpA boost, with BoltBeam coverage (Ice Beam gets 20% Freeze chance also) and this guy is like a slow, painful death to all.

    Did anyone of you know how Last Resort works?
    You need to use every other move the user know at least once and succesfully, then you can use Last Resort.

    In the last Wi-Fi tournament I was sweeped by a Snorlax in Trick Room, the thing is this Snorlax only knowed TWO moves: Curse and Last Resort. He used curse once and then was just sweep all the way.

    It may be something like this:
    Snorlax @ Leftovers
    Trait: Thick Fat
    Brave nature
    - Curse
    - Last Resort

    (no need to mention that my opponent was a japanese, those guys really know to tailor succesfull stange sets)

    edit: @Baz Anderson: My team was a Rain team with Kingdra as a sweeper, and yes i use a Scizor, but by the time I took out Snorlax was already too late.

    Not really sure about creative but I have swept with this set.
    Jellicent @ Choice Scarf
    Timid 252 Spd/SpAtk 4 Def
    -Water Spout
    -Giga Drain
    -Sludge Bomb
    -Shadow Ball
    This set is insane and under the rain, not much can survive 3 turns under Water Spout. Giga Drain to take care of Gastrodon and others that thing they can take Jellicent on. The rest is self-explanatory but trust me, this set is amazing.

    The other day I saw (watching random battles) this Butterfree that really surprised me, the set can be incredibly broken if you don't pack some specific counters.

    Butterfree @ Leftovers
    Timid 252 spe / 252 spa /4 something (I guess)
    Sleep Powder
    Quiver Dance
    Whirlwind
    Bug Buzz

    Just bring it in against something slower, sleep it, quiver dance, whirlwind, repeat, since the sleep counter resets on the forced switch, there's nothing the oponnent can do to stop it from reaching +6. There's a good amount of things that can counter it, but it's pretty legit set against a shit ton of things.

    relying in sleep powder... broken if it works, but it has a good chance to fail.

    I use this with great success even on pokemon showdown surprises people


    Scizor @ Expert Belt
    Trait: Technician
    EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SDef / 252 Spd
    Adamant Nature
    - Bug Bite
    - Bullet Punch
    - Pursuit
    - Brick Breake

    also i run a physical typlosion , it puts a stop to most water that switch in excepting a special attack politoed gets destroyed by wildcharge only Milotic (2KO with choice band and Vaporeon same thing can take it and try to wall it ) and pokemon like Volcarona or Chandelure are put a stop even Heatran and Jirachi cant survive the EQ, unless running physical defensive sets

    Typhlosion @ Choice Scarf Or Banded depends on if i decided to bring scarf hydreigon
    Trait: Blaze
    EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe / 4 HP
    Adamant Nature
    - Earthquake
    - Rock Slide
    - Wild Charge
    - Flare Blitz

    It Also has acess to Howl to setup but requires a free switch and using leftovers

    Sleep Powder has a 97% chance to hit with Compoundeyes factored in.

    Something I thought was a gimmick, but tested it, and it works really well... but only in Triples...

    "Curse" Golbat
    Item: Eviolite
    Nature: Brave
    Ability: Inner Focus
    IVs: 0 Speed
    EVs: 252 Atk/252 SpDef/4 Def
    Moveset:
    -Curse
    -Super Fang
    -Aerial Ace/Brave Bird
    -Protect/Roost

    Obviously used on a Trick Room team. Set up on turn one. Trick Room lead (I usually use Jellicent), Follow Me/Rage Powder (center lead), and Golbat.

    Curse+Eviolite give it surpising bulk, Curse helps this even more, and due to Curse, and the minus speed nature, Golbat becomes surpisingly slow, underspeeding minus Speed natured Tyranitar, and minus Speed natured Jellicent.

    Aerial Ace, since it can hit non-adjacent Pokemon. Brave Bird can also be used if you don't mind the recoil damage, and will hit much harder, and also hit non-adjacent Pokemon.

    Super Fang allows you to wall break verus Rock and Steel types.

    Last moveslot is up to preference, both work, but in Triples, Protect is usually the better option, but to heal off the recoil damage from Brave Bird, Roost can also be an option. Golbat really doesn't have any other attacking options that are viable on this set unless you really fear Rock/Ice types. However, Steel Wing could have potential, but I wouldn't advise it. Super Fang already allows you to wall break for the rest of the team.

    This claims otherwise.

    What's the legal breeding chain?

    *EDIT* Nevermind. Found it. Farfetch't or Skarmoy.

    WaittingForSeedot didn't find it for me.

    Moveset and description has been edited.

    Farfetch'd only. And WaitingForSeedot is only Gen 4, unless it was changed recently.

    here's what i'm using on my current gbu team to check rain:

    [​IMG]
    @ Fighting Gem
    Careful Nature
    94 HP / 212 Atk / 204 Spe

    Protect
    Sunny Day
    Leaf Blade
    Close Combat

    EVs and nature ensure virizion can live a helping hand boosted life orb draco meteor from kingdra (and consequently, every other draco meteor) and still outspeed neutral base 100's like salamence. close combat can one-shot chople tyranitar, the afore mentioned kingdra assuming minimal defense investment, and some scizor (the one that outspeeds metagross) with fighting gem, and leaf blade rounds out the coverage. sunny day is key though, since i can kill the politoed without much resistance because i don't carry an auto weather of my own and soften hydro pumps that would've KO'd. outside of rain, it causes blizzards to miss, excadrills to slow down, and my heat waves obviously do more damage. virizion makes a great anti rain mon and can still bring the hurt so i reccomend trying it out if you have rain troubles. :)
