Florges Type: Fairy Predicted Base Stats: 78 / 65 / 68 / 112 / 154 / 75 Abilities: Flower Veil (Prevents Grass-type allies from becoming statused) Symbiosis (The Pokemon can pass an item to an ally) Notable Known Moves: Aromatherapy Moon Blast Psychic Grass Knot Calm Mind Wish Protect Analysis: Florges is one of the new Fairy-types introduced this generation, so it's not so surprising that it works a lot like the original Fairy-type, Sylveon. They both have mediocre stats aside from their outstanding Special Attack and Special Defense, and their movepools leaves a lot to be desired. However, a few moves do stand out: Aromatherapy and Wish. These 2 moves give it just the right amount of backing it needs to make a name for itself in this metagame. Potential Movesets: Medicinal Herb Item: Leftovers Ability: Flower Veil Nature: Calm EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD Moves: Wish / Protect / Aromatherapy or Toxic / Moon Blast At the moment, Florges doesn't have the offensive movepool to go for an attacking set, so this is the best it can do so far. Florges can work an excellent cleric; healing itself or others with Wish and Aromatherapy. Toxic is also an option to poison stall some Pokemon. What differentiates Florges from a lot other clerics is that it can also provide some form of offensive presence. A base 95 STAB move backed by a base 112 Special Attack is enough to dent quite a few Pokemon, possibly even OHKOing Pokemon if it's super-effective (Calcs needed). A major flaw in Florges is that besides from its Special stats, it's terrible. Pretty much any moderately powerful physical attack is enough to OHKO or 2HKO it, so play to its strengths at it should be a valuable member to your team. Forretress and Scizor make excellent teammates for Florges. Forretress can be the physical side of a defensive core, or Scizor can provide some deadly physical pressure. Both are immune to Poison and resist Steel, while Florges can take Fire-type attacks coming their way (so long it's not Flare Blitz or Fire Punch). Flower Power Item: Life Orb Ability: Flower Veil Nature: Timid / Modest EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 SpD Moves: Calm Mind / Moon Blast / Psychic / Hidden Power Fire or Ground With Florges' high Special Attack and a movepool just big enough, an offensive set could be used. Calm Mind is the crux of this set, as it raises Florges' already high Special stats to monstrous levels. Moon Blast is obligatory STAB, with HP Ground allows it to hit to hit the Poison- and Steel-type that resist it. However, HP Fire could be used to hit things like Skarmory and Bronzong, while still doing neutral damage to Poison-types. If you run HP Fire, it's in your best interest to run Psychic so you can hit Poison-types super-effectively. Sweet Leaf Item: Leftovers Nature: Bold EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA Moves: Calm Mind / Recover / Aromatherapy / Moon Blast As Moon Blast is only resisted by 2 types (both of which not all that common), a mono-attacking set could work to great effect. With a few Calm Mind boosts and max HP and Defense, Florges could take hits from both sides of the attacking spectrum while simultaneously raising it's Special Attack. Recover and Aromatherapy is so Florges can heal off any damage it takes while setting up and is not Toxic stalled by the likes of Heatran and Blissey. Moon Blast is obligatory STAB. Decently powerful, accurate, and is only resisted by 2 types. Any Pokemon that can deal with Poison- and Steel-types makes a good teammate for this Florges. So basically, anything with Earthquake and/or a Fire attack. Other Options: With Florges' subpar Speed, a Choice Scarf set could be used, but there are many faster Pokemon that hold Choice Scarfs, so it becomes obsolete in higher tiers. Checks and Counters: Anything with a physical attack that isn't Dragon and can take a Moon Blast are your best bet. So Pokemon like Arcanine and offensive Poison-types or Steel-types can put Florges in some real trouble. P.S. Please tell me if any part of this is lacking, there's another moveset I can add, or if I can improve on a certain area. Thanks!
