    Yep. As most of you NU players know, NU is a very versatile tier, and I don't think we should restrict ourselves to Pokemon that are exclusively in this tier. I'm sure that there is really interesting 'mon, lying somewhere in NFE, waiting to be used so it can wreck havoc. My goal is to uncover these bosses and make you and I use them.

    I'll show one set that I've used with much success in this meta:

    Magmar by JCM.

    Magmar (M) @ Choice Scarf
    Trait: Vital Spirit
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
    - Fire Blast
    - Focus Blast
    - Psychic
    - Hidden Power [Grass]

    Magmar is a pretty awesome Pokemon. Most people expect an Eviolite, so they don't expect to be outsped by him. He can easily switch in on Amoonguss's Spore, absorb it with Vital Spirit and start sweeping. Fire Blast is very powerful STAB, and can often OHKO when neutral. The other moves are pretty much all coverage.

    Have fun posting your sets!
