Pokemon Name: Ninjask Lead Type: Support Lead What it does: Baton Pass Speed Boosts, Swords Dance boosts, Hone Claws Boosts, Pinch Berry Boosts if you're Feeling particularly ballsy. Why it is good: With the usage of multi-hit moves such as Rock Blast dwindling (not altogether gone, but I've found them quite the rarity with Cinccino gone) Ninjask can more often than not setup against something and is almost guaranteed to get a pass off, supporting your team with a variety of options. Of course Ninjask isn't without it's faults, it struggles against Taunt and is stripped of 50% of it's health when switching in with rocks on the field. What counters it: As previously mentioned, anything with (Priority)Taunt, phazing moves, priority and multi-hit moves to get through its subs and sash before it can pass could be deemed a counter. Example Set Ninjask @ Focus Sash/Leftovers Speed Boost 248 HP / 224 Def / 36 Spe -Baton Pass -Substitute -Swords Dance/Protect -X-Scissor / U-Turn X-Scissor for not-so Taunt bait, I guess you could use a pinch berry - Focus sash almost guarantees you are able to pass off at least one speed boost.
