    Trollfreak strikes again. This hasty nature completely screws the set i posted. Now it cant use adamant to increase its attack while maintaining its defenses. Guess 244 HP / 252 Atk / 12 Spe is going to be the new alternative. Better special bulk at the cost of physical bulk and power. Doesnt sound that great now.

    Good job Trollfreak...it's Raikou/Entei/Suicune all over again -_-
    WHY DO YOU HATE SHINES SO MUCH?!?!?

    I guess this would be the best set I could come up with then:

    Leader Genesect (Literally the leader of the Genesect army :p)
    @Life Orb/Expert Belt (If you want to keep it alive longer)
    Hasty Nature
    252 Speed/252 Atk/6 HP
    -Shift gear
    -Blaze Kick
    -U-Turn/X-scissors (for more power)
    -Extremespeed

    Hope to god you get the +1 from Download prior, and then setup...

    This would also be a decent set

    Physical Scarfer
    @Choice Scarf
    Hasty Nature
    252 Speed/252 Atk/6 Sp.Atk
    -Ice Beam
    -Blaze Kick
    -U-Turn/X-Scissors (for more power)
    -Iron Head/Explosion/Extremespeed

    Meh, I'd rather run the standard Ice Beam/Explosion/Iron Head/U-turn (or Sleep Talk/Iron Head/U-Turn if Sleep Clause is unbanned)

    You need U-Turn obviously, Iron Head is important to revenge Kyurem-W, as well as pull games out of your ass with flinch hax. Ice Beam is probably the most replaceable move but is important for Rayquazza, and Explosion is very nice to get rid of Ho-Oh or kill that last mon Palkia. Blaze Kick just doesn't seem that useful to me, I'd rather U-turn on Ferro and Forry won't mind a Blaze Kick at all in the rain.

    Is it confirmed that Genesect is locked into a Hasty nature?
    We thought the same with Bolt Strike/Blue Flare/Glaciate Victini but it turned out not to be the case.

    If it is then it's not nearly as good as we thought, because without an attack+ nature Extremespeed and Explosion fail to OHKO too many things of importance.

    Victini was never confirmed to be locked into a nature. Genesect was. Besides it's a shiny event which are most of the time locked into a nature.

    Hmm.. Hasty is annoying for CB Genesect I guess, but to be honest, I always ran a +speed nature on that anyways since I find outspeeding Rayquaza and the Kyurems to still be pretty valuable! Scarf will probably be chill with it though, the only downside is that you are going to take more from Arceus and Rayquaza ExtremeSpeeds. Not ideal, but I don't think ts a dealbreaker for Blaze Kick, or even a hypothetical Shift Gear set.

    When will this be up on showdown? Also what are the benefits of blaze kick over flamethrower on a scarfed set?
