Durant. The ant from B/W that surely annoyed us all in victory road. Somehow, this underwhelming seeming guy ended up in UU and even tho his most common set is well known, people may be wondering how it would do in UU. Well, ive been using this guy in UU and it is one of the top sweepers ive ever used. Heres the best set if you didnt already know. Durant SubClaws [Ability]- Hustle [Move 1]- substitute [Move 2]- Hone Claws [Move 3]- X scissor [Move 4]- Iron head/Rock slide [Nature]- Adamant/Jolly [Evs]- 6 Hp, 252 Atk, 252 spe [Item]- Life Orb/Leftovers First off, I will explain exactly what this set is capable of. With the extreme prevelance of Deo-D in UU, Ive been using this set as a lead. You can easily set up a sub on Deo-D as they either taunt or lay up hazards. If the prior, you can set up hone claws to boost attack further, and negate the acc drop from hustle. If not, you can just X scissor away and hope you dont miss. Iron head is for extra stab, but i reccomend rock slide so you can hit crap like zapdos. For the majority, durant can sweep great with only 1 or 2 boosts. Checks and Counters: The old Ru guys that were used to keep ant in check certainly apply here, steelix and magneton. Also, scarfed raikou can outspeed and kill with tbolt. Or just a LO or something if durant is adamant. Zapdos easily walls sets lacking rock slide and can ohko with heat wave. Coballion can take most hits and deal solid damage as well. Sableye can also priority burn with prankster WoW, therefore crippling it. All things givin, durant is an outstanding pokemon and deserves to be uu. Dispite low hp and spD to abuse his typing with, Durant can abuse his mediocre movepool and great base 109 Atk and Spe as well as hustle/hone claws to wreck big holes in unprepared teams. So altho Kevin has his weak points, his strong points (including laughing in the face of the omnipresent Deo-D) are impossible to overlook. So yea, feel free to discuss your opinions on this guy who was deemed too strong for RU.
