    Furijio

    Status: WIP

    ------------------------------

    [Overview]
    • Good Speed and Special Defense
    • Decent Support movepool
    • Substandard typing and other stats
    [SET]
    name: Rapid Spin
    move 1: Rapid Spin
    move 2: Acid Armor
    move 3: Ice Beam
    move 4: Recover
    item: Leftovers
    nature: Timid
    EVs: 252 HP / 116 Def / 136 Spe

    Set Comments:

    • Rapid Spin, despite being weak to SR but immune to (Toxic) Spikes
    • Acid Armor boosts low Defense
    Additional Comments:

    • Speed allows to always outpace Gira-O and 2HKO with Ice Beam
    • Substitute or Toxic can be used over Acid Armor
    Teammates & Counters:

    • Shanderaa is great for switching in thanks to typing and lack of stealth rock
    • Borotorosu resists Fighting and enjoys lack of Stealth Rock
    • Aerodactyl, Terakion and Aakeosu can Taunt to prevent Acid Armor and KO with Stone Edge
    • Anything fast with a strong physical fighting/rock move can usually 2-3HKO
    [SET]
    name: Dual Screens
    move 1: Reflect
    move 2: Light Screen
    move 3: Explosion
    move 4: Rapid Spin / Ice Beam
    item: Light Clay
    nature: Hasty
    EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe

    Set Comments:

    • Standard DS + Explosion
    Additional Comments:

    • Ice Beam over RS for some damage if getting rid of rocks not necessary
    • Light Clay is optimal item but Sash works if there are no Rocks in play
    Teammates & Counters:

    • Shanderaa and Aakeosu are great switch-ins since they resist or are immune to Furijio's common weaknesses and benefit greatly from screens
    • Any frail sweeper or Baton Passer enjoys Dual Screens. Special sweepers also get the benefit of weakened blissey (explosion does at least 50%)
    • Anything with a fast Taunt, especially Ghosts who are immune to Explosion and Rapid Spin like Froslass
    • Bullet Punch Scizor and Mach Punch Rohpushin will hurt since no Acid Armor
    [Team Options]
    • Shanderaa is a great partner, since it has Flash Fire and Ghost-type and appreciates no Rocks and Screens
    • Anything that can take Fire/Fighting moves, especially on physical-side can switch in nicely
    [Optional Changes]
    • Blizzard on a hail team
    • Sharpen Sweeper is extremely gimmicky
    • SpA investment to KO some Dragons
    [Counters]
    • Faster, Physical things that hit for SE damage like Meloetta, Aakeosu, Infernape and Terakion
    • Priority is a big pain
    • Anything that resists Ice Beam tends to wall
    [Dream World]
    • Furijio does not get a Dream World ability.

    This has massive issues with formatting. First, use only one sprite, left justify it, and name the URL link after the actual Pokemon and not a cutesy name. Next, use actual bullet points, include a [Dream World] section, and include the Teammates & Counters section for each set.

    Don't forget Scizor Bullet / Rohpushin Mach Punch in counters

    30 Def is lolworthy, almost any decently strong physical priority is gg.

    Is Acid Armor really worth mentioning? Reflect provides the same boost (albeit for only 5 turns) but also supports the team. To be honest though, I think Toxic should be the primary option as it allows him to easily beat BW's premier spin-blocker, Burengeru.

    It's a shame, this guy would make a decent Spinner if his Defence wasn't so ridiculous. He matches up quite well to most Ghosts but will just auto-die to Pursuit users and random physical attacks.

    After an Acid Armor boost, he can survive 2 Giratina-O's Shadow Sneaks, outspeed it, and 2HKO in return with Ice Beam while Giratina-O tries to spinblock it. Acid Armor also lets him eventually stat boost up to +6 and actually take hits like a champ. Reflect should definitely get a slash, though, for team support.
