    ROAR Entei

    [Overview]

    • Entei is a fearsome Pokemon; its good HP, Attack, and Speed mean that it can be a fearsome physical sweeper
    • Poor physical movepool however; its second-strongest attack in a vacuum is Return
    • Unfortunately outclassed somewhat by Hihidaruma, but it has its niche
    • Respectable 90 Special Attack means that it can use its somewhat-wider special movepool

    [SET]
    Name: Physical Attacker
    Move 1: Flare Blitz
    Move 2: Stone Edge
    Move 3: Return/Iron Head
    Move 4: Extremespeed
    Item: Life Orb/Choice Band
    Ability: Pressure
    Nature: Adamant
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe

    [Set Comments]
    • Pressure with Adamant is the only option, as Flare Blitz Entei is an event Pokemon
    • Life Orb is the preferred option, as it lets Entei switch between its moves, while still retaining a power boost.
    • The EVs are standard on offensive Pokemon
    [Additional Comments]

    • Nitro Charge can be used over Extremespeed if you wish to attempt a sweep.
    • Stealth Rock support is extremely useful when using this set, as it turns many 2HKOs into OHKOs.
    CM set (WIP) (open)

    [SET]
    Name: Calm Mind

    Item: Life Orb/Choice Band

    Nature: Timid
    EVs: 134 HP / 252 Atk / 176 Spe

    [Set Comments]
    • Pressure with Adamant is the only option, as Flare Blitz Entei is an event Pokemon
    • Life Orb is the preferred option, as it lets Entei switch between its moves, while still retaining a power boost.
    • HP EVs are for making 404 HP substitutes
    • Speed allows it to beat positive-natured base 90s and neutral-natured base 100s

    [Dream World]
    • Entei's Dream World ability is Flash Fire, which should replace Pressure on all offensive sets.

    Yeah I'm going to request that this is locked until either the DW ability is released or we start on UU.
