Leafeon Status: Work in Progress [Overview] Interesting stat distribution: high defense, mediocre speed, acceptable attack Chlorophyll and Leaf Guard allow for unpredictability under the sun brought by Ninetails Unfortunately shallow movepool; [SET] name: Swords Dance move 1: Swords Dance move 2: Leaf Blade move 3: Return/Double Edge move 4: Quick Attack/Synthesis item: Life Orb/Leftovers Ability: Chlorophyll Nature: Adamant/Jolly evs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe [Set Comments] This set abuses the drought brought by ninetails to attempt a sweep. Leafeon's high defense allows it to get off a Swords Dance against several strong physical attacks. Swords Dance boosts Leafeon's attack to 638, and Chlorophyll doubles its speed to 634 Leaf Blade does quite a lot of damage to most weather setters, allowing Leafeon to catch them on the switch. [Additional Comments] Stealth Rock allows Leafeon to get KOs it wouldn't have otherwise, as well as making it harder for many of its counters to switch in. Walled by many steel types such as Nattorei, Bronzong, and Heatran. The last slot depends on whether Leafeon fits better on the team picking off weakened attackers or [SET] name: Physical Wall move 1: Wish move 2: Protect move 3: Leaf Blade move 4: Yawn/Heal Bell/Roar Item: Leftovers Ability: Leaf Guard Nature: Impish evs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD [Set Comments] Under the sun, Leaf Guard prevents Leafeon from being afflicted by any status conditions. [Additional Comments] EV spread is for maximum physical bulkiness, allowing it to take many hits [Team Options] As Leafeon is intended to be used with sun support, Ninetails is invaluable to Leafeon. Because Leafeon has issues getting through steel types, Magnezone/Magneton is one of Leafeon's best partners. In addition, Speed Boost Blaziken does an excellent job of removing Pokemon which Leafeon can't really touch. [Optional Changes] [Counters] Scizor. Leafeon is walled by pretty much every steel out there without resorting to a Hidden Power.
