    Okay, gonna need some help. This is for an actual cart, and for two metagames: ADV OU, and Battle Frontier.

    Here's what I have:

    [​IMG]
    SnorlaXBOX (Snorlax) @ Leftovers
    Ability: Thick Fat
    Nature: Adamant
    IVs: 31/31/31/10/31/30
    EVs: 118/68/136/0/176/20
    - Curse
    - Body Slam
    - Earthquake
    - Rest

    SnorlaXBOX really rocks in the Battle Tower, even making a surprisingly good lead. In fact, he got me 105 straight wins (and counting!). He switches in on special hits, sponges them, and proceeds to set up.


    [​IMG]
    Purty (Swampert) @ Leftovers (Brightpowder for Frontier)
    Ability: Torrent
    Nature: Relaxed
    IVs: 31/31/31/30/31/30
    EVs: 250/0/216/44/0/0
    - Earthquake
    - Ice Beam
    - Toxic
    - Protect

    Purty is my defensive pivot. He sponges physical attacks and threatens their users. I also use him to (A) kill bulky opponents with Toxic, or (B) Get opponents to Rest so SnorlaXBOX can come in and set up.


    [​IMG]
    Shifu (Alakazam) @ Lum Berry
    Ability: Synchronize
    Nature: Timid
    IVs: 31/14/31/31/31/31
    EVs: 6/0/0/252/0/252
    - Calm Mind
    - Psychic
    - Fire Punch
    - Thunderpunch

    Shifu is either my lead or my secret weapon. I set up with Calm Mind if I think the opponent is going to status me, or I simply 1HKO them. Great at stopping Crobats in the frontier, and surprisingly good at putting pressure on the opponent.


    Now, I'm also planning on using these three.


    [​IMG]
    Picasso (Smeargle) @ Salac Berry
    Ability: Own Tempo
    Nature: Jolly/Timid
    IVs: 31/x/31/x/31/31
    EVs: 96/0/120/0/40/252
    - Spore
    - Substitute
    - Belly Drum
    - Baton Pass

    Picasso will pass Belly Drums to Medicham, but I'm kinda confused on how to use him. Smogon says to "send out Smeargle against a slow threat and use Substitute". But wouldn't they just break my Substitute as soon as I put it up? Wouldn't Spore be better the first turn?


    [​IMG]
    JackieCham (Medicham) @ Scope Lens (Lax Incense for Frontier)
    Ability: Pure Power
    Nature: Jolly
    IVs: 31/31/31/x/31/31
    EVs: 6/252/0/0/0/252
    - Brick Break
    - Rock Slide
    - Shadow Ball
    - Substitute

    Picasso will pass Belly Drums to JackieCham. The attacking moves are for coverage, and Substitute over Focus Punch because (A) I have terrible prediction, and (B) for the emergencies where Picasso can't pass his sub.


    [​IMG]
    Krayt (Tyranitar) @ Leftovers (Starf Berry for Frontier)
    Ability: Sand Stream
    Nature: Naughty
    IVs: 31/31/31/31/31/31
    EVs: 6/252/0/0/0/252
    - Dragon Dance
    - Rock Slide
    - Earthquake
    - Ice Beam

    Krayt is basically the finisher. By the time he's out, nothing will be left to stop him.


    Please rate! I was thinking of replacing Smeargle and Medicham with Salamence and Metagross, but I like the ability to 1HKO everything in OU.
    Also, any human opponents I play won't be users of Whirlwind or Roar, and even Calm Mind is a rarity.
