http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/spiritomb Spiritomb@Leftovers 252HP/252Def/4SpA Nature: Bold ~ Calm Mind ~ Dark Pulse ~ Rest ~ Sleep Talk People like IPL (aka Council/Doorman/[KD8]otome/Sarcastic The Third/stop making so many nicknames) and goof and and mop and aldaron have attested to the efficacy of this set, and I have had the pleasure of seeing it used first hand in a high-level (both battlers were good though I can't remember who they were, iirc ipl was one of them). On paper, Spiritomb is a spin blocker because it's a Ghost-type On paper, any poke with Rest/Sleep Talk is a status absorber. And on paper, any pokemon with the defenses and typing to do so can work with Resttalk + a stat up move + a STAB attack, a la Crocune (a Resttalk/CM/Surf Suicune compliments largely of Cromat for those of you not in the know) from Advance. The last job can really only be carried out by pokemon like Suicune and, to a lesser extent, Machamp and Gyarados, but I really, really feel that the ease with which Spiritomb can carry out the other two jobs make a "Crotomb" set very viable in today's metagame. Further, I also feel that spin blocking and status taking, in a SR and status-heavy metagame (Scarfgar and Toxic Spikes abound), make fitting this Spiritomb on one's team all the easier. What do you guys think? Have any of you seen/used this in play yet?
