[SET] name: Psycho Shift move 1: Psycho Shift move 2: Rest move 3: Sleep Talk move 4: Ice Beam / Psychic / Charge Beam item: Flame Orb nature: Bold evs: 252 HP / 78 Def / 108 SpD / 72 Spe <p>This set makes use of the somewhat underestimated move, Psycho Shift. With the Flame Orb attatched, you'll have the ability to cripple common counters such as Tyranitar and Metagross via the burn status. Cresselia's defensive capabilites can be hindered slightly without Leftovers, but with Rest and Sleep Talk in the moveset, you don't need to worry too much. The EVs give Cresselia almost equal defenses, allowing her to take powerful attacks from either side of the attacking spectrum, while the Speed EVs allow you to burn faster foes such as Tyranitar, Metagross and Gyarados with healthy Speed investments. Since two of those often pack the move Taunt, aiming for upwards of 224 Speed would be recommended.</p> <p>The final move slot simply depends on which Pokémon your team as a whole would have more trouble dealing with. If Garchomp, Salamence & Dragonite are your main worries, then Ice Beam is your best option. If Infernape worries you, then Psychic is a good alternative, especially since you're unable to burn Infernape. Psychic is also nice for predicting Heracross switch ins, as burning a Guts Heracross wouldn't really help you at all. If you're scared of Taunting Gyarados and don't want to invest EVs in Speed, Charge Beam might be the best choice. The Special Attack raise is always nice, and a welcome asset to Cresselia's sub-par Special Attack.</p> <p>Heatran is probably the best counter to this set, as activating Flash Fire helps it a lot, and with its good HP and defenses, it can shrug off weak Charge Beams as well as resisted Ice Beams and Psychics. Other Flash Fire Pokémon can cause problems, Houndoom, Arcanine & Ninetales to name a few. Guts Heracross being burned means it can seriously hurt Cresselia even more, as long as it avoids switching in on Psychic repeatedly. If Cresselia doesn't pack Psychic, Heracross and Infernape are safe switch ins. Guts Machamp is another somewhat bulky Fighting-type that can do some major damage with Payback. Most other Pokémon with the Guts ability and fairly decent HP and defenses can deal with Psycho Shift Cresselia, such as Ursaring. As well as Pokémon that resist Cresselia's attacking moves or have decent HP and Special Defense stats that don't mind being burned, Suicune is a good example of this.</p> Does anyone else feel we should add this set? I think it's just about worthy of a full set in its own right, though I can see the number of flaws it posesses after testing it out, but it is effective quite often. If no one thinks this set is good enough to be listed, I at least feel as though Psycho Shift with Flame Orb should be mentioned in Other Options. Although, I honestly haven't tried this moveset without Rest Talk, using perhaps Moonlight and two attacking moves, or Thunder Wave to hinder Heatran and Infernape. What's everyones view on this?
