I know many pokemon with Guts, Quick Feet, Toxic Boost or Poison Heal tend to use Toxic Orb. However, this is possible to do without relying on a Toxic Orb or the opponent poisoning you. Instead, you can Toxic Spikes your own team by Skill Swapping Magic Bounce This is an upgraded version of my old Self Poisoning Team which is a great deal more effective. Xatu: Bold / 184 HP / 100 Defense / 148 Special Defense / 76 Speed. Ability: Magic Bounce Item:Eject Button Moves: Skill Swap Roost U-Turn/ Shadow Ball Psychic/ Shadow Ball Xatu's main purpose in the team is to Skill Swap his ability in order to poison yourself. Also, he is great for bouncing off pesky pokemon who try to Taunt, Stealth Rock etc. Eject Button is used so that he can easily switch out after doing a Skill Swap, assuming the opponent hit you. Make sure to plant yourself against slower pokemon and pokemon who can't OHKO Xatu. Forretress: Careful/Sassy / 252HP / 252 Special Defense / 4 Speed. Item: Shed Shell Ability: Sturdy Moves: Toxic Spikes Counter Volt Switch Rapid Spin Forretress is by far the only viable Toxic Spiker that does not absorb Toxic Spikes. As its job is to Toxic Spikes its own team, Forretress is probably the best option. Remember to only do one layer of Toxic Spikes, to avoid quickly killing your team. In addition, it has access to Counter, Rapid Spin, and Volt Switch. The given EV spread allows Forretress to switch to a huge number of special attacks as most will try to take advantage of his rather mediocre special defense. Shed Shell is used to escape pokemon who can trap you. Conkeldurr: Adamant / 252 Attack / 252 HP / 4 Speed. Item: Choice Band Ability: Guts Moves: Mach Punch Drain Punch Earthquake/Payback Stone Edge/Payback This is the monster to do the damage. After successfully Toxic Spiking your own team, switch in this monster to see him reap chaos. With an Adamant Nature, 252 EVS in Attack, Guts boost and a Choice Band, this monster reaches an incredible attack of 936. He can easily OHKO many opponents with priority Mach Punch and Drain Punch is overkill and heals the damage taken from poison. This monster can 2HKO most Skarmory with Drain Punch and OHKO Defensive Chansey with Drain Punch. He is a real monster. The only down side is his inability to switch between moves. Life Orb should never be an option though, since he will be taking lots of damage from poison alone. Breloom: Careful / 80 HP / 176 Defense / 252 Special Defense Item: Leftovers Ability: Poison Heal Moves: Substitute Focus Punch Leech Seed/Spore Protect Breloom is the staller of this team. With Leftovers and poisoned, he heals an amazing chunk of HP each turn and even more with Leech Seed. Combine this with Focus Punch and you might be looking at one of the deadliest SubSeeders in the game. Protect is used over Spore in order to get a free heal. His power is amazing as well, even without the added EV's or Nature. One Focus Punch can easily OHKO Defensive Chansey. He is an amazing pokemon that can be used to maximum potential with this set. Jirachi: Impish/Bold /252 HP / 80 Defense / 176 Special Defense Item:Leftovers Ability: Serene Grace Moves: Wish Magic Coat/Thunder Wave Cosmic Power/Protect Iron Head/Stored Power Jirachi is what keeps this team alive. As a Steel Type, he is immune to getting poisoned and is one of the few Wish passers who can it this team. When Conkeldurr is low on health Jirachi can easily Wish pass to him to keep him going. Cosmic Power is used to boost his already great defenses so he wont be crippled by just anyone. Iron Head or Stored Power is the only options here. Iron head is to abuse his great ability and cause some good damage and Stored Power is used to take advantage of his Cosmic Power boosts. Protect is an option over this, to secure a heal from Wish. Magic Coat is great for bouncing back Taunts and Will-O-Wisps. Thunder Wave can be used instead to make him an annoying Paraflincher. Make sure to keep him alive, as he is vital for keeping your team going. Heatran: Calm / 244 HP / 44 Defense / 220 Speed Item: Leftovers Ability: Flash Fire Moves: Substitute Protect Torment Lava Plume/Flamethrower/Fire Blast/Magma Storm This is the notorious Torment Heatran set that fits perfectly into this team. He covers most of this team's weaknesses and can counter many. Very few Pokemon carry more than one attack that can severely hurt Heatran, and by using Torment on them, said Pokemon must either switch out or stay in and engage in a long, brutal stall war. Substitute and Protect allows Heatran to both scout and shield itself from moves that can harm it. Lava Plume is chosen so that Heatran can slowly chip away the opponent's health. Other Options: Latias over Jirachi Since she can be a very good wishpasser too. Hydreigon or Latios over Heatran Since both can be great and powerful revenge killers that are immune to toxic spikes. Many other Guts users or Zangoose over Conkeldurr. I just chose Conkeldurr for his massive attack stat. Many other Guts users or Zangoose over Breloom. If you want another powerful attacker. If you would like to add any input, please comment. Any suggestions will be appreciated! Thank you.
