I had this wild idea that Breloom would work well with Houndoom but it hasn't been working out thus far ;-; Breloom (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Effect Spore EVs: 44 HP / 252 Atk / 28 Def / 184 Spd Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk) - Focus Punch - Leech Seed - Spore - Substitute This is leading because Snorlax, Waters, Forretress, and Tyranitar seem to be the most common types of leads. It scares all of them! and gets Celebi into the game asap if the opponent has one which is good. Snorlax (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Immunity EVs: 12 HP / 136 Atk / 136 Def / 20 SAtk / 204 SDef Brave Nature (+Atk, -Spd) - Body Slam - Brick Break - Fire Blast - Selfdestruct Since Houndoom should theoretically remove Gegnars from the fray and Houndoom+Claydol defeat most forms of Jirachi I do not really need Earthquake for much of anything so here's Brick Break to surprise Tyranitar. Aside from that it does your Standard special wall stuff but it actually ends up rarely switching in I find since I have other counters for most Waters/Electrics/stuff. Porygon2 @ Leftovers Trait: Trace EVs: 252 HP / 236 Def / 16 SAtk / 4 Spd Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk) - Ice Beam - Recover - Thunderbolt - Toxic Dugtrio is annoying for a lot of my team and this counters Mence/Gyara which I need it to do. Toxic because I don't really want to paralyze Metagross... I'd rather Sleep it since it is a huge pain for this team currently. And Toxic is better for helping stall out water types and stuff. Usually my switchin for Jolteon/Houndoom/Flygon as well. It's all around a solid team player : ) cos his horns (Houndoom) (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Flash Fire EVs: 52 HP / 252 SAtk / 204 Spd Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk) - Flamethrower - Hidden Power [Grass] - Pursuit - Will-O-Wisp Kills Gengar and Celebi which is important for Breloom, Claydol and Snorlax. Walls offensive Celebi and Superachi and kind of walls full special tyranitar which is kind of funny... I might remove Wisp since it hasn't been that useful but things like Crunch/Beat Up are probably less useful... Claydol @ Leftovers Trait: Levitate EVs: 252 HP / 100 Atk / 158 Def Relaxed Nature (+Def, -Spd) - Earthquake - Explosion - Hidden Power [Fire] - Rapid Spin For Spikes, ddtar, some Jirachis, backup help for Raikou, etc. HP Fire decimates Forretress (it probably like 3hkos it tbh) and Explosion is good because if I blow up on Celebi/Blissey/Zapdos/Water mon either Breloom or Houndoom will benefit. Since I have Houndoom and P2 I don't really need Ice Beam or Psychic on this thing but I might use Psychic anyway simply because Gengar is a bit of a menace if I can't manage to snag it with Houndoom... Skarmory (M) @ Leftovers Trait: Sturdy EVs: 252 HP / 136 Def / 100 SDef / 20 Spd Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk) - Rest - Spikes - Hidden Power [Flying] - Whirlwind Skarmory + Claydol is a solid defensive core. This handles Heracross mostly and also sets up Spikes which work well with Breloom and pretty much anything else for that matter. This is kinda also my only choice against Metagross which sucks a bit, especially if Metagross has HP Fire :< so yeah man. help me out here.
