Ledian Type: Bug/Flying Abilities: Swarm - Increases the power of Bug moves by 50% if Ledian is at 1/3 health. Early Bird - Amount of sleep turns is cut in half Dream World: Iron Fist - The power of punching moves is increased by 20% Base Stats: 55 / 35 / 50 / 55 / 110 / 85 Movepool: Code: Level-up: Tackle Supersonic Comet Punch Light Screen Reflect Safeguard Mach Punch [COLOR=Red]Baton Pass [COLOR=Black][COLOR=Red]Silver Wind[/COLOR] [COLOR=Red]Agility[/COLOR] Swift Double Edge Bug Buzz In-game NPC: Double Edge Air Cutter Bug Bite DynamicPunch Endure Headbutt Ice Punch Knock Off Mega Punch Mimic Mud Slap Ominous Wind Rollout Sleep Talk Snore String Shot Substitute Swagger [COLOR=Red]Swords Dance[/COLOR] Tail Wind Thunderpunch Uproar [/COLOR][/COLOR] TM: Focus Punch Toxic Hidden Power Sunny Day Hyper Beam Protect Frustration Return Solarbeam Dig Brick Break Double Team Aerial Ace Facade Attract Thief Sing-a-round Focus Blast Fling Acrobat Giga Impact Flash Struggle Bug U-turn Rock Smash Strength Gen 5 Egg moves: Psybeam Bide Screech Encore Focus Punch Drain Punch Gen 4 TM/Move Tutor Moves: Giga Drain [COLOR=Red]Roost[/COLOR] Captivate Natural Gift Roll Out Tail Wind Well, we're more than 4 months into UT and surprisingly enough, still no Ledian thread. Boy, look at that attacking movepool! Focus Punch, Focus Blast, Giga Drain, Drain Punch, Thunderpunch, Ice Punch, Bug Bite, Bug Buzz, DynamicPunch, Mach Punch, U-turn... some of which should complement its Dream World ability Iron Fist quite well. Unfortunately, Ledian hits like a whiffle ball bat from both spectra with terrible 35/55 attacking stats, completely wasting any potential these moves have. It has a great 110 Special Defense stat, but any potential Ledian has of being a bulky support Pokemon is wasted with its awful 55 HP and 50 Defense. It has Encore, Baton Pass and great boosting moves such as Agility and Swords Dance, but its ho-hum Speed and crippling 4x Stealth Rock hinder any chance it has at being a reliable Baton Passer. All in all, Ledian is an inferior Ninjask who has a harder time finding a niche role a lead due to lack of Speed Boost. Everything it can do, someone else can do better. Let's get to the sets that Ledian can use. However, Encore is a great asset as a Baton Passer, as Ledian is significantly more bulky and faster than Smeargle (Encore acts as a pseudo Spore). [set] name: Realistic Baton Pass ability: Early Bird nature: Jolly item: Focus Sash / Lum Berry move 1: Encore move 2: Agility move 3: Swords Dance move 4: Baton Pass EVs: 152 HP / 104 SpD / 252 Spe Does this look familiar? Probably not, unless you read every 4th Generation analysis on-site. This set has literally not changed in the transition to Black and White. Ledian needs maximum Speed and runs no attacking moves, so you are free to focus the rest of its EVs on its Special Bulk. Switch Ledian in on a Choice-locked Ground-type attack and start boosting, or switch into something slower and Encore its Grount-type attack. It's best to start with Agility while they switch, then Swords Dance, survive the oncoming hit with Focus Sash, hope they don't have a priority move, then Baton Pass the hell out of there. In order for this set to work, there must be no Stealth Rock, Sandstorm, or hail on the field, and you must avoid enemy priority. Also, Mischievous Heart users totally ruin this set, so make sure they are out of the picture as well. All-in-all, this takes a ton of support and weather cancelling to work. [set] name: Screen Pass ability: Early Bird nature: Jolly item: Light Clay / Lum Berry / Leftovers move 1: Encore move 3: Reflect move 2: Light Screen / Agility / Swords Dance move 4: Baton Pass EVs: 136 HP / 120 Def / 252 Spe Very similar strategy as above. Encore a setup or Ground-type move, Reflect on the switch to give Ledian more Physical Bulk. Light Screen is the recommended 3rd move, as it makes Ledian very Specially bulky, but you can take advantage of on-coming Physical attackers and set up Agility or Swords Dance. Once you have one screen and any other boosts, Baton Pass out of there.
